The Rise and Resistance to Globalism in the US

UN General Assembly

The United Nations General Assembly at New York City

For as long as there has been an America, there have been those who seek to exploit her prosperity and might: Pirates, who operate in international waters outside the rule of law, elitists of the high seas, plundering the wealth of nations and leaving the smoldering husks of conquest in their wake. Time and time again, these international banks, corporations, and the politicians they finance, have effectively used strategic alliances to engage in economic warfare against their competition while incrementally using escalating crises they generate to establish global political hegemony.

For decades, the movements of these command-and-controllers have been closely monitored and resisted only by academics, deep insiders, and the most highly knowledgeable of watchdog groups. All of that is changing. Now, with the advent of the internet and the subsequent amalgamation of incalculable data, the average computer savvy individual with access to electronic media can conduct their own investigations with greater ease. This has notably led to a shift in the knowledge base of the grassroots and an exponential surge of anti-globalist groups around the world, particularly in the United States.

While the young America was in its inception as British colonies in revolt, another kind of revolution was taking place in Europe that would change the dynamics of empires forever. In 1773, Mayer Amschel Rothschild organized a meeting of the money powers of manufacturing and banking to discuss his plan. By combining their resources they would gain complete control of the economic and political sphere. Politicians would be servile and obedient to them. They would control all outlets of public information and provide all manner of vice to systematically corrupt the youth of all nations. Finally, they would fund all factions in war to draw all nations into their debt and use crises to push for new world order of a one-world government that is completely owned and operated by them. This plan would involve implementation by stealth until such a moment where no cunning or force could undermine it (Mullins, 1991).

In a similar fashion to the Rothschild meeting of the late eighteenth century, a secret gathering of elitists took place in a hotel room at a luxury resort in Jekyll Island, Georgia in 1910. With representatives of the Rockefellers’, Rothschild’s, the Vanderbilt banking family, Senator Nelson Aldrich, and others, constituted one quarter of the wealth of the entire planet. At this meeting the Federal Reserve System was devised. The voting and signing into law of the Federal Reserve Act by Woodrow Wilson on December 23, 1913 was done under the radar when most of Congress was home for Christmas (Griffin, 1994).

According to author and professor Murray N. Rothbard of the Ludwig von Mises Institute, “The Federal Reserve System virtually controls the nation’s monetary system, and it is accountable to no one. It has no budget, is subject to no audit, and no Congressional Committee knows of, or can truly supervise its operations.”(Rothbard 1996 ).  All of their meetings are held in secret and half the owners are foreign nationals (Mullins 1991). They print money, issue credit “out of thin air,” and finance both sides of every war (Griffin 1994). Lew Rockwell, founder of the Mises Institute adds, “The century of central banking is also the century of total warfare.” Shortly after the formation of the Federal Reserve, World War I was in full swing.

During this, “War to end all wars,” a National Relief Fund was established and Republican Herbert Hoover was dispatched by Democrat Woodrow Wilson to live in Belgium and work for Emile Francqui, the twelfth richest man in Europe and an owner of the Federal Reserve.  Hoover was sent under the guise of a National Relief Fund program to feed the war orphans in Belgium. After trading 200,000 slaves from the Kaiping copper mines in China to the Congo for Franqui, Hoover was deemed the perfect humanitarian for just such an occasion. Instead of helping orphans however, he used US taxpayer funds to provide relief to German army by shipping food and supplies because they were losing interest in war and could no longer afford it (Mullins 1991). Levying war against the several States and providing aid and comfort to the enemy is clearly an act of treason according to Article III Sec. 3 of the US Constitution. By feeding the German army in WW I, Hoover committed treason.

After the war, a League of Nations was proposed by Woodrow Wilson; however, the US Senate blocked America’s entry. In the interim between the world wars, an American branch of the Royal Institute of International Affairs (RIIA) was incorporated in 1921 and the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) was born. Their mission was to incrementally change the political atmosphere in favor of the internationalists (Perloff, 1988). Out of the CFR’s “Informal Agenda Group” The United Nations would ultimately be formed after World War II by the Rockefellers at the Presidio Naval Shipyard in 1945 (Jones, 2006), not by nations tired of war (Perloff 2009).

Also, between the wars was the German consortium IG Farben. Germany made a determination that one of the reasons they lost the war was because they ran out of gas. Since Germany was rich in coal, IG Farben developed a process called hydrogenation that converted up to fifty percent of the weight of coal into fuel. They used this technology as leverage to convince the Rockefeller’s to let them merge with Standard Oil. Ultimately merging with over 2000 companies through the United States and ninety three countries, the agreement was to allow all joint oil exploration outside of Germany be led by the US, and all joint ventures for petrochemical pharmaceuticals be led by Germany and Professor Bayer from Bayer Pharmaceuticals, a founding member of IG Farben (Griffin 1975).

The German war machine of the next World War would be fueled almost entirely from oil that was converted from coal. The oil was good for German panzers manufactured by Ford and for warships; however, it was too crude for the Luftwaffe, Germany’s air force, and the planes had to be supplemented with an additive from Standard Oil in the US. While the German word Farben is benign, meaning dye-stuffs, a tribute to the company’s origin, the use of IG stands for Interessengemeinschaft, meaning “Community of Interest,” or in plain English, a cartel (Griffin, 1975).

While the CFR and IG Farben were moving forward with their international agenda between the world wars, other factions of elitists in the US, more nationalist in nature, believed that brute force was a superior method for implementation of their plans and accelerated their plans. Brigadier General Smedley Darlington Butler testified in Congress to the McCormack/ Dickstein Committee on Un-American Activities from 1934-1935 about a fascist plot by the American Nazi Party to assassinate President Franklin D. Roosevelt and an attempt to takeover of the federal government. He implicated members of Citibank, the DuPont’s, and Remington Firearms (Parfrey, 2003).

By blowing the whistle, two time Medal of Honor recipient Smedley Butler, affectionately known as “Old Gimlet Eye” to his marines, had single-handedly stopped the Nazi takeover of America. Time Magazine, controlled by banker JP Morgan, lambasted Butler in an article titled “A plot without plotters” (Parfrey, 2003).  Although the committee did agree with Butler, they did not release their findings to the public at the time (McCormack). In his timeless classic War is a Racket, Butler lays out the horrors of war while explaining who makes the profits and who pays the bills. The thirty three year veteran acknowledged being a “high class muscle man for big business,” adding, “profits are measured in dollars and losses are measured in lives” (Butler 1935).

Another example of war as a racket for big business transpired shortly after the US involvement in the Korea under UN direction.  In 1954, the Central American multinational United Fruit Company had a big problem.  Jacobo Arbenz came to power in Guatemala. He campaigned on a land reform bill to combat a seventy percent ownership of land by only three percent of the people. In order to prevent disruption of their monopoly, they colluded with the CIA to launch a public relations campaign against Arbenz. Despite Guatemala having no official diplomatic relations with the USSR and no Russian Embassy, accusations of Guatemala as Soviet satellite were enough to justify US pilots bombing Guatemala City and overthrowing Arbenz (Perkins, 2004).

Meanwhile in that same year, across the Atlantic, another internationalist event that would shape the economic and political direction of America was taking place. Much like the 1773 meeting between the Rothschild and European captains of industry, and the Jekyll Island meeting in 1910, the Bilderberg Group met in secret to combine over 120 of the world’s most influential multinational corporations, heads of state, bankers, consulting firms, and media moguls, to come to a consensus and make public policy, while behind closed doors. The elitist confab had been meeting under a total media blackout since 1954 (Jones 2006). This already violates the laws of several nations including the United States such as the Logan Act. This law is found in Title 18 in US Code of Federal Regulations, Sec 593. Because of the corruption that it breeds, all public officials who attend are guilty of felony crimes and can be punished with three years of incarceration.

As a result of the more overt and aggressive international policies, the late 1950’s through the 1960’s, experienced a more galvanized public resistance to internationalist corporate shenanigans and their interlocking globalist bureaucracies. In 1962, the American Legion passed a resolution condemning the CFR. The daughter of the American Revolution petitioned Congress to investigate them. The Goldwater movement, which was to restore the GOP to its roots, and the newly formed John Birch Society rose in strong opposition to the globalists and CFR (Perloff, 1988).

Even with pushback from these highly motivated groups and others, most people were still in the dark. This allowed corporate agents like John Perkins to move across the world and shakedown nations for trillions of dollars in the 1970’s and 1980’s. Recruited by the National Security Agency to be the Chief Economist for the Boston based Charles T. Main Inc., corporate skullduggery was the name of the game. To justify massive World Bank loans to developing countries, he produced an exaggerated false economic prospectus for infrastructure projects and skillfully sold it to his critics. After the loans were approved, contractors from outside the host nation would pour in to start massive water and power construction (Perkins, 2004).

The indigenous people did not benefit as a whole because no new jobs were created for them and they could not afford the services rendered if the projects were finished. By the time the bill came due for the interest on the loans, the leaders had been replaced. The pound of flesh required by these corporations, like Main, Bechtel, and Halliburton, would be to tax the people into submission and strip the land of coveted natural resources. Additionally, these developing nations would have to support US foreign policies and military presence. If a leader of a nation did not get with the corporate program, the “jackals” were right behind him to mop up. Jaime Roldos of Ecuador and Omar Torrijos of Panama were examples. If the leaders were too heavily guarded, or the CIA installed replacements developed hubris of their own then justification for military intervention of that nation would be waiting (Perkins, 2004).

Perkins, who coined the word “Corporatocracy” (Irvine, 2014), lays out how international corporations dominate the majority of the world’s nations in his New York Times bestselling autobiographical novel, Confessions of an Economic Hit Man. A good Illustration of this concept from the time period was the film, Network. “There is no America. There is no democracy. There is only IBM and ITT and AT&T” the antagonist shares his vision with newscaster Mr. Beale. “One vast and ecumenical holding,” he describes, “in which all men will share a common stock” (Lumet, 1976).

The omnipresence of industry and arms merging with government was a key point in President Dwight D. Eisenhower’s 1961 farewell address. “In the counsels of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought the by the military industrial complex.” Eisenhower continued, “The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and persists.”

In a speech to the American Newspaper Publishers Association three months later, President John F. Kennedy also warned of a “vast and monolithic conspiracy” and added “The word secrecy is repugnant in a free and open society.” Kennedy himself resisted the Federal Reserve by issuing Executive Order 11110, which introduced billions of dollars of silver and silver certificates into circulation, as competing currency against Federal Reserve Notes. He resisted the CIA when he fired its director, Allen Dulles, in the wake of the “Bay of Pigs” disaster. He resisted the CFR when he fired his Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Lyman L. Limnitzer, for the proposing terrorists against Americans as a pretext for war with Cuba in the declassified Northwoods Document. Kennedy opposed the military industrial complex by ordering all troops out of Vietnam by 1965 in National Security Action Memorandum (NSAM) 263.

Kennedy was publicly executed and his direction was subsequently reversed. Since then, the CFR has been that driving force of influence and misplaced power for decades in both the Democrat and Republican parties. Every Secretary of Defense, over forty United States UN ambassadors, many dominant news media figures, and every member of every presidential cabinet from that day in 1963 have been CFR (Perloff, 1988), even unto this day (Jones, 2009).

“They [globalists] weren’t able to do this [take over] because they had better products,” explains radio host Alex Jones, in his YouTube video, Full Spectrum Evil: The Secrets of Global Domination, “They were able to do it because they created, through fractional reserve banking here in the US, and similar systems worldwide, unlimited free credit for themselves which they then loan out to you at interest.” Jones includes, “They have the get out of jail free card” (Jones 2011).

This was demonstrated in by Inside Job, which is a documentary film about the sub-prime mortgage crisis and subsequent financial meltdown in 2008, costing investors and taxpayers trillions of dollars.  Dominique Strauss-Kahn, the French socialist and Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund in 2007, was asked about the Simon Johnson’s article in The Atlantic magazine. Johnson stated, “The economic and political power of the financial services industry has become so great that the policy-making has become prisoner to the financial oligarchy.” Strauss-Kahn admitted, “That is not wrong,” adding, “I think he puts too much emphasis on this” (Ferguson 2010).

The abuse of economics as a political weapon for corporate control continues. In Foreign Affairs magazine. Shinzo Abe, Japanese Prime Minister from 2006-2007, told Foreign Affairs magazine, the chief publication of CFR’s scholarly white papers, that he was going to use “Abenomics,” his own brand of economics that dumped 100 trillion yen of stimulus onto the Japanese market. “Abenomics” merges “Reaganomics” and “Clintonomics,” as a decisive tool for steering Japan into the international Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) treaty (Rose, 2013).

These endorsements by the Council on Foreign Relations of economic and political activities at home and abroad such as the TTP and the Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) have culminated in blowback across the land. At a Conference in Seattle, prolific filmmaker and historian, G. Edward Griffin, described his organization, Freedom-Force International, as the Antithesis to the CFR because it is built on the model of individualism and not collectivism (Griffin, 2010).

TTP and TTIP affect the sovereignty of all nations involved. In America, it is being negotiated in secret. There is no congressional or legislative oversight worldwide for its 30,000 pages. Before being quietly released recently, five out of twenty nine chapters that have been leaked, not only can corporations ignore the laws of all nations altogether if the laws interfere with profits, they can sue governments for losses to their expected future gains through “Investor State Tribunals.” Massive sweeping legislation for, guns, climate, cybersecurity, income, pharmaceutical, vitamins & minerals, surveillance, and copyrights are known to be included. In June, after being denied access by the Obama Administration, Congress abdicated its constitutional oversight powers to give the president unlimited “Fast Track” authority to negotiate the terms with 500 corporate lobbyists in secret, even secret from Congress (McAdoo 2014).

This blatant disregard for transparency and congressional oversight has lit a fire into the online Anti-globalist community worldwide, especially in the United States. No longer are these individuals and groups limited to books, magazines, talk radio, and documentaries. The Anti-globalists have taken up arms on the Internet. Former twelve time Congressman and three time presidential candidate Ron Paul’s Campaign for Liberty, the Ron Paul Channel, his homeschooling curriculum, and Institute for Peace and Prosperity have resisted globalism with a softer, more palatable tone that is easily digestible to the public.

The fight against globalism in governments, banks, and corporations is not a phenomenon that is mutually exclusive to isolated pockets of a geographical area within the states; it is widespread throughout all regions of America. The John Birch Society operates from Wisconsin, Abbey Martin’s Media Roots Podcast is a spin off from her forceful Breaking the Set show on RT News is in Washington DC. Luke Rudkowski’s We Are Change (WRC) is home-ported in New York and has activists in every state. Mark Dice frequently wreaks havoc with his petitions in San Diego. Storm Clouds Gathering is a popular YouTube channel. The Jacksonville based Radio Show Earth: with Dr. Drake & Dr. Truth, is overtly Anti-New World Order in tone. Caravan to Midnight with John B. Wells and Truthstream Media with Aaron & Melissa Dykes are organizations in Texas, Crossing the Void Radio with Scott Haire is based in Connecticut, Dan Bidondi of the Rhode Island stationed Truth Radio Show single-handedly shut down three FBI conferences about the 2013 Boston bombings with questions about “false flag” operations.

Another prominent figure in the world of resistance is Lew Rockwell, the author of several books including the Economics of Freedom and The Left, The Right, and the State. He is a staunch anti-war, anti-state, “anarcho-capitalist,” and founder of the Ludwig von Mises Institute of Austrian Economic Studies in Auburn, Alabama. The Mises Institute is a central hub for liberty oriented scholars from around the world. alone gets over half a million visitors per month. More media savvy activists include Constitutional lawyer Krissanne Hall from the Tallahassee based Krissanne Hall Show, who frequently travels the country on speaking tours. Decorated Marine and author of Freedom Adam Kokesh started out as the host of  RT’s Adam vs the Man. Author, actor, wrestler, US Navy Seal, and former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura hosts the hard core anti-establishment Off The Grid. Gerald Celente’s Trends Research Institute is harshly critical of globalist scandals. Joel Skoussen’s World Affairs Brief and Matt Drudge’s Drudge Report are also famous within the Anti-globalist community. These activists also share a common trait; they are primarily non-party affiliated.

Among these individuals and organizations, Alex Jones of is considered by many in Anti-globalist circles to be at the “tip of the spear” in the fight against what global leaders themselves call the “New World Order. Alex Jones’s and have risen from a public access radio show in the late 1990’s in Austin, Texas to 9.9 million viewers per month according to

These groups have plenty to say about a great deal of issues across the geopolitical spectrum. The UN Global Biodiversity Assessment Agenda 21 is a good example because it has caused alarm in the alternative independent media community. Agenda 21 usurps federal and state authorities and goes directly into local communities. Adrian Whylie, a former Libertarian candidate for governor of Florida, warns of the “Florida Forever” program to confiscate private property under the guise of environmentalism and turning over wetlands to Nestle, a Swiss company, so they can bottle the water and sell it back to us (Irvine 2014). From lauding the virtues of bringing back gladiatorial events in a Hunger Games type of scenario, to cramming people into compact cities, fierce opposition to Agenda 21 is looming, After UN Secretary General Kofi Anon recommended humans eat bugs to save the planet, radio host Alex Jones talked about an anti-human agenda that wants people to live in a 200 square foot apartment and pay $100 for a steak (Jones 2006).

The Globalists can push back too, and play dirty. When the World Trade Organization (WTO) had a meeting in Seattle in 1999, thousands of people who criticized the organization as being a thinly veiled asset collection tool for elitists on the global plantation, showed up to protest. “What do you do when you have an angry crowd with a legitimate gripe? You call in your boys” according to documentary film Police State II: The Takeover. In the film, Anarchists known as the “Black Block,” under Delta Force protection, and a rent free a base of operations across from the Seattle Police station, injected themselves into the crowd of legitimate protesters. After hours of destructive behavior against the will of the majority, they created the pretext for the police to crack down on the entire crowd, beating and arresting them indiscriminately. The First Amendment was suspended, martial law was in effect, and sixty percent of the city was shut down while WTO meeting continued unabated. Anyone so much as wearing an Anti-WTO pin in downtown Seattle was arrested at the checkpoint (Jones 2001).

The advent of this internet activism has led to a mass awakening and also resulted in the establishment globalists counter-responding in other, more positive ways after decades of press and media denial and blackout, the Bilderberg Group now has an official website. Sometimes, even Congress responds, Rep Mike Rogers has even introduced HR 1205, the “American Sovereignty Restoration Act” to permanently end US membership in the United Nations (American 2015).

“Monopoly needs government,” G. Edward Griffin best explains while unmasking the paradox of the rich socialist: “The biggest industries today, the multinationals, are not interested so much in efficiency in production or competition in price or product level. They are competing at the government level,” adding, “so they can use the power structure of government to eliminate or hinder their competition” (Griffin 1975).

The progress that capitalism and corporate profits bring can certainly empower humanity or it can be an incredible engine for global tyranny. What will we choose for the future of international business?  Competitive goods and services or coercion? The consequences of inaction to the future of humanity can be severe. The battle rages on. What else can be done? Be Vigilant, conduct your own research, vote with your dollars, and be prepared.

Frederick Douglass stated, “A man’s liberties rest in three boxes, the ballot box, the jury box, and the cartridge box.”

Dangerous Lessons: The “Melian Dialogue” for the Modern Age

Melian Dialogue,

Melian Dialogue,

When the Athenian General Thucydides recorded the History of the Peloponnesian War, did he know that his writings would stand the test of time through the millennia and that the dialogues contained within would remain as profound barometers for measuring the human condition?  One such discourse is known as the “Melian Dialogue”, between neutral people on the island of Melos and their would-be Athenian conquerors.  Many themes run throughout this very candid and insightful conversation between the key decision makers of the day that continue to have a profound impact in modern society including the justification for imperial hubris, the role of power in the defense of freedom, the sustainment of empires through force and fear, the doctrine of blowback, the willing consent of the governed, and speaking truth to power regardless of the potential ramifications.

The Melians were a colony from Sparta wmelian-debateho refused to join the Athenian empire like other islanders had done, instead preferring to remain neutral in the forthcoming conflict between Athens and Sparta. Before physical hostilities ensued, Athens sent representatives to negotiate, declaring that they wanted no trouble in bringing them into the empire for the good of both peoples. The Melians countered their claims with hope in the Spartans coming to their aid and faith that the gods would protect them, as they have survived for hundreds of years as a society. The Athenians began to extol the virtues of their invasion by claiming:

Our opinion of the gods and our knowledge of men lead us to conclude that it is a general and necessary law of nature to rule what we can. This is not a law we made ourselves, nor were we the first to act upon it when it was made. We found it already in existence, and we shall leave it to exist for ever for those who come after us. We are merely acting in accordance with it and we know that anyone else with the same power as ours would act in precisely the same way. (Thucydides 405)

The ideas discussed would be applied throughout the generations. One example takes place in the late eighteenth century while Adam Smith was in England drafting The Wealth of Nations and the founding fathers in America were contemplating independence. At a time when the ideas and language of liberty was flourishing a much more nefarious course for humankind was also being hatched elsewhere in Europe (Declaration).

SecretsIn 1983, Eustace Mullins published Secrets of the Federal Reserve in which he gives credit to William Guy Carr, writer of Pawns In The Game, who revealed a meeting of bankers in Mayer Amschel Bauer’s Goldsmith Shop in Frankfurt in 1773. Bauer, who would later be known to the world as “Rothschild” or Red Shield, invited twelve other wealthy and influential men to convince them that if they agreed to pool their resources they could then finance and control the World Revolutionary Movement and use it as their Manual of Action to win ultimate control of the wealth, natural resources, and manpower of the entire world. Reasoning that it was logical to conclude that the in laws of nature right lies in force and that political freedom is an idea, not a fact, he added that the use of any and all means to reach their final goal was justified on the grounds that the ruler who governed by the moral code was not a skilled politician because he left himself vulnerable and in an unstable position, asserting that right lies in force. He stated that the word Right is an abstract thought and proves nothing, finding a new right to attack by the Right of the Strong. They had the right to seize property by any means, and without hesitation, securing submission and sovereignty (Mullins 55).

Likewise, the Athenians were frustrated with the Melians and charged that they have proven nothing and through a false sense of honor will fall into disaster for the sake of an idea (Thucydides 205). With straightforward candor, the Athenians brashly justify imposing their will in the name of their own interests by saying, “So that by conquering you we shall increase not only our size but the security of the empire” (Thucydides 403).

ChessboardIn 1997, top globalist strategist Zbigniew Brzezinski, founder and former head of the NSA and Trilateral Commission, wrote a book about maintaining American primacy and global hegemony called the Grand Chessboard, in which he establishes its purpose.  Brzezinski states, “It is imperative that no Eurasian challenger emerges, capable of dominating Eurasia and thus also challenging America.”  Justification for territorial expansion remains a perpetual phenomenon.

Tragedy and HopeThe Athenians also understood very well the importance that power plays in the defense of freedom, responding to the Melians with, “So far as right and wrong are concerned they think that there is no difference between the two, that those who preserve their independence do so because they are strong, and that if we fail to attack them it is because we are afraid” (Thucydides 403).  They later add, “Hope is a comforter in Danger! If one already has solid advantages to fall back upon, one can indulge in hope.” Carrol Quigley, Professor of history at Georgetown University and mentor or Bill Clinton, wrote in 1966, “While politics consists of much more than weapons, the nature, organization, and control of weapons is the most significant of the numerous factor that determines what happens in political life (Clinton).” He goes on to say:

When weapons are of the “amateur” type of 1880, as they were in Greece in the fifth century B.C., they are widely possessed by citizens, power is similarly dispersed, and no minority can compel the majority to yield to its will. With such an “amateur weapons system” (if other conditions are not totally unfavorable), we are likely to find majority rule and a relatively democratic political system. (Quigley 1200)

When citing unfavorable conditions, Quigley was alluding to armed citizens as a fundamental problem to elitist command-and-controllers in their efforts to maintain control over their vassal populations.

To maintain an empire, the professor continues:

But, on the contrary, when a period can be dominated by complex and expensive weapons that only a few persons can afford to possess or can learn to use, we have a situation where the minority who control such” specialist” weapons can dominate the majority who lack them. In such a society, sooner or later, an authoritarian political system that reflects the inequality in control of weapons will be established. (Quigley 1202)

The Athenians were less mindful of mainland inhabitants who were free because their level of comfort made them slow to mobilize their forces, also claiming “We are more concerned about islanders like yourselves, who are still not subdued or subjects who have become embittered by the constraint that empire imposes upon them. These are the people most likely to act in a reckless manner and bring themselves and us, too, into the most obvious danger.” (Thucydides 403)  Mr. Rothschild expounds on this principle at infamous meeting by outlining in his master plan, by using all outlets of public information which they own and control to invent infamies that would bring others into disrepute, who if left unchecked would interfere with their overall plans (Mullins 55).

Fear based systems of domination and control are crucial element to maintaining empires. The Athenians do promise, perhaps disingenuously, that Melians can keep their property as long as they pay tribute to them and they continue to use the island as a strategic location for furthering of the empire (Thucydides 406). This strategy, commended by fifteenth century author Niccolo Machiavelli while crediting to the Romans for using it, was lauded, “Sending out colonies to for as strategic locations to maintain control of other nearby lands at little expense to the ruler…All others left unmolested, are in consequence easily quieted, and at the same time afraid to make a false move, less they share the fate of those who have been deprived of their possessions.” (Machiavelli 39) Superior firepower alone is not enough to dominate subjects. Fear based systems of control must also be implemented. Framing the debate by dictating the terms from the beginning with the prerequisite of elimination of arguments pertaining to justice that would otherwise be given, has also proven to be an effective measure of control that the Melians would have to overcome in this debate (Thucydides 401).

51LHOdCZZUL._SX326_BO1,204,203,200_Blowback is also known as the law of unintended consequences.  One of the more outrageous examples this doctrine is cited by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) concerning the US intrusive and internationalist foreign policy in Iran. An excerpt from the Stephen Kinzer book titled appears twice on the official website and reads, “It is not far-fetched to draw a line from Operation Ajax through the Shah’s repressive regime and the Islamic revolution to the fireballs that engulfed the World Trade Center in New York.” (Kinzer 202-204) The book continues to make the point that the world has paid a heavy price for Western activity in the Middle East (205). In the same spirit, the Melians address this issue to the Athenians by saying:

Is it not certain that you will make enemies of all the states who are at present neutral and naturally conclude that you will attack them too? Does this not mean you are strengthening your enemies you have already and forcing others to become your enemies against their intentions and inclinations?” (Thucydides 403)

One example of efforts to prevent blowback is James Buchanan’s decision not invade South Carolina during his presidency. In December of 1860, by the process of rescinding their original ratification of the Constitution of 1788 through the state legislature, South Carolina seceded from the Union. Fear of encouraging other states to follow suit and thus destroying the rest of the Union led to a special committee and Jefferson Davis was dispatched to negotiate terms for South Carolina’s return (McClanahan).

The consent of the governed has manifested as a vital component to the endurance of any system ranging from benevolent cooperation to authoritative control through the ages.

Indeed, the very language in Declaration of Independence for the United States inspired by John Locke and penned by Thomas Jefferson overtly proclaims, “To secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just power from the consent of the governed” (Declaration).  “ In 2008, Brezezinski, acting as a top Obama Administration foreign policy advisor, frustrated over a mass political awakening because of influences such as the internet, lamented, “In earlier times it was literally easier to control a million people than to physically kill a million people, today it is infinitely easier to kill a million people than to control one million people” (Brezezinski speech).  Recognizing that the consent is a necessary and universal ingredient to any prolonged period of base domination, more sophisticated methods would have to be developed to usurp this unchanging requirement. Some elitists like Edward Bernays, the revered Father of Modern Advertising, Propaganda, and the nephew of Sigmund Freud, was intimately familiar with the effective use of applied psychology. Where consent does not exist, it was necessary to manufacture it.  In his 1928 book, Propaganda, he opens with:

The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. This is a logical result of the way in which our democratic society is organized. (Bernays 37)

Rothschild understood the role of consent when he spoke of his plans to “reconstruct all existing institutions, and to become the sovereign Lord of all those who left to us the rights to their powers by laying them down to us in their liberalism” (Mullins 55).

Etienne De La Boetie

Etienne De La Boetie in 1559

Etienne De La Boetie, who wrote a Discourse of Voluntary Servitude, counters Machiavelli’s techniques with the notion that a tyrant is automatically defeated if the country consent to their own enslavement (De La Boetie 44). Speaking truth to power in boldness as an open display of dissent was even integrated into Greek literature. In Sophocles Theban play, Antigone, Creon the king declares disobedience and anarchy as the worst of all evils and the greatest crime on the earth while Antigone challenges him, ready to face death unashamed  (Sophocles 84-85; 94).

The Melians were bold enough to speak truth to power toward the Athenians, who were equally as likely to be familiar with the concept of non-compliance described in Antigone, and withdraw their consent (84-85). The concluded the negotiations with “Our decision Athenians is just the same as it was at first. We are not prepared to give up in a short moment the liberty which our city has enjoyed from its foundation for 700 years” (Thucydides 407).  In recent times, the nations of the world have received open threats in the style and spirit of the Dialogue from the likes of globalist operative Henry Kissinger, commanding,  “We will have a New World Order whether we like it or not either by conquest or consent” (Endgame). This is just one example of a history that is replete with ultimatums similar to that in the Melian exchange.

As the history of human condition and traditions unfolds, for those who endeavor to understand continuous struggle between freedom oriented people and tyrannical forces that would enslave them, the “Melian Dialogue” and the magnitude of its implications and applications must not be overlooked. It serves a damning indictment of the imperial hubris inherent within our species while simultaneously accounting for the hope of a more satisfactory state of affairs through resistance to tyranny in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds.

Citizen Hacktivism vs Corporate Propaganda

HacktivismThe attempt by the United States to overthrow the Assad regime in Syria has recently manifested itself as an alliance between Google, the State Department, and the Qatar-based news agency known as Al Jazeera. Adding to the ongoing scandal surrounding the Hillary Clinton emails, the deliberate use of media to alter the citizenship of people in other countries for political reasons has come into the limelight (Bolton, 2016). This email was originally published on Jan. 7, 2016 by WikiLeaks, an online community of citizen activists who counter corporate and political establishments worldwide.

Jared Cohen, a former State Department official and a founding head of Google Ideas, sent a message in 2012 to the Deputy Secretary Burns. Cohen wrote about creating an app to track the defections in Syria in an effort to encourage more to defect. Partnering with Al Jazeera to give them primary ownership of the app, Cohen requested that the State Department keep it quiet. In the chain of messages, then Secretary of State Clinton replies to her Deputy Chief of Staff Sullivan with, “FYI – this is a pretty cool idea” (WikiLeaks, 2016).

Believing that this would have a powerful psychological impact as stated in the original letter, the plan went forward. Google created the app and gave it to Al Jazeera and they placed the interactive map on their website. Al Jazeera won the Best Technical Innovation Award at the Online Media Awards in London and even boasted about the award with four commendations on its website, the very tool that Google created (Chichakyan, 2016).

This underscores mainstream media willingness to cooperate with governments in the advancement of political agendas, thus blurring the lines between the organizations, while posing as independents in a plan to affect citizenship abroad against their governments. It was citizens who used internet to illustrate this collaboration and demonstrate that the power of the new media in the struggles for 21st century hegemony can work in both directions (Pieterse, 2012).

To Qatari citizens, Al Jazeera, which is chiefly on television and focuses primarily on international news, is a source of national pride. This has not stopped the trend that is shifting toward the internet as a primary source of news, especially in the ex-patriot resident population (Meeds, 2015).

Accompanying the growth of the internet as a news source is a substantial rise of internet activism such as blogging, trolling, and even a style of hacking called hacktivism as in the case for WikiLeaks (Cammaerts, 2013). Sometimes WikiLeaks are at odds with major news agencies and sometimes they work along-side (Roberts, 2011). In the past, WikiLeaks and Al Jazeera performed in a role together in de-legitimizing the Egyptian government in 2011 during what is dubbed Arab Spring. It is also important not to forget the significant role of social media by bringing together many anti-Mubarak forces who opposed the Egyptian president, coalescing them around several issues in their anti-regime platforms through Facebook and Twitter (Mabon, 2013). Also noteworthy in the struggle for dominance of the message on the web is the response of young people to the question of whether they approved of politicians also using social media such as Facebook and Twitter. Most were surprisingly in favor of it (Loader, 2016).

Hacktivists are usually united for a political cause that revolves around the free flow of information. According to the Hacktivismo Declaration, published on July 4, 2001 “State-sponsored censorship of the Internet is a serious form of organized and systematic violence against citizens.” (McCormick, 2013).  The phenomenon of WikiLeaks is characterized by a variety of coordinated and talented group of people with weak and strong ties. They have a unique set of opportunities and constraints, with strategies of contention carried out by their members and sympathizers (Cammaerts, 2013).

WikiLeaks history against the US State Department, the leaks by Edward Snowden from the National Security Agency (NSA), the conviction of Bradley Manning, and the greater number of prosecutions by the Obama administration have caused a reconsideration of the significance of the case of the Pentagon Papers (Altschuler, 2015).

In considering the long term impact of citizen activism, the action is in the reaction. Large organizations and governing bodies usually do not respond to embarrassment with more openness. According to John McCarthy of the Australian Institute of International Affairs, “WikiLeaks’ long-term importance will not lie in the details it has revealed. These will prove ephemeral. It lies rather in the reactions to WikiLeaks in western democracies and what this shows about the difference between community thinking and official practice.” Citizen activism through releasing massive amounts of data in trying to bring bureaucratic systems in line with modern public attitudes faces a difficult challenge: Meaningful change without an overall shift of attitude within the organizations will be unrealistic (McCarthy, 2011).

Another case made against the effectiveness of WikiLeaks as a force for significant change or a threat to government secrecy is mathematical in nature. Massive leaks of news are not significant proportionate to the exponential growth in data used by governments in the information age. For example: Only six percent of the 250,000 US State Department leaks were considered classified Secret, and the State Department claims that it has moved 2.5 million documents, ten times that amount, by other means than the network that was hacked (Roberts, 2011).

Furthermore, the economic factors have come into play. PayPal,, Master Card, and Visa, have with withdrawn their support for WikiLeaks. No political pressure, which did exist, was required. They have cited violations of their online user agreements as reasons for the disassociation and cessation of services; however, the legal and financial risks outweighed the benefits to them as WikiLeaks was never a source of revenue for them. The benefits of cooperation were not sufficient for the risks (Roberts, 2011).

Another challenge to hacktivists comes from the moral question in the use of Distributed denial of service (DDOS), which shuts down an opponent’s web site, is a popular revenge tool in the arsenal of hackers on all sides of conflicts (Hampson, 2012). DDOS is a controversial contradiction within the hacktivism community because of the moral dilemma of preventing others from posting information is a violation of the very principles of the free flow of information they claim to stand for (Roberts, 2011).

Citizens who play an essential role in the new media as both consumers and online producers of information motivated to bring global changes through release of massive levels of guarded information may be marginally efficacious at best in affecting public policy, yet there is hope. Even Slavoj Zizek, a Marxist philosopher and professor at the European Graduate School in Slovenia has stated, “We can no longer pretend we don’t know what everyone knows we know” (Pieterse, 2012). In this way, hacktivists have already forced a change in corporate, mainstream traditional media, and government official narratives which are then subsequently re-consumed in the news cycle.

The dance between citizens and media as cooperative and opposing forces continues to be a spectacle of epic proportions; like two supermassive black holes spiraling toward each other at increasing speeds, with their colossal gravitational influences counter-balancing the other while spinning wildly toward a collision course, they release tremendous shock waves of super-heated gas and energy that ripples through the host galaxy. What happens when an unstoppable force comes into contact with an immovable object?  What will be the long term effects of these ripples on society at large?

The Media Strikes Back: Appealing for a License to Lie

In what may become an epic case to go all the way to the US Supreme Court, multiple major media conglomerates are suing Jesse Ventura. If victorious, they will overturn the verdict in Ventura v HarperCollins Publishers LLC.The 2014 verdict, handed down by a jury in the US 8th District Federal Court in Minnesota, awarded Ventura $1.8 million from the Kyle estate for defamation.

Jesse Ventura is a world recognized public figure whose career spans over forty years. He is a former Navy Seal, actor, professional wrestler, New York Times Bestselling Author, alternative media personality, documentary television series host, mayor, and Governor of the State of Minnesota.

Kris Kyle, the legendary sniper who achieved world fame through his autobiography American Sniper, and the 2014 Clint Eastwood blockbuster with the same title. Kris Kyle was murdered before completion of the film. In the book, he told a story about how a bar fight broke out and he “decked” an individual after making a comment about the Navy SEAL’s, “They deserve to lose a few.” Although the book did not specifically mention Ventura by name, he was identified by Kyle in subsequent interviews.

Defamation and Libel are incredibly hard to prove in the courts already. In order to win a libel case, all the conditions of a six part test must be fulfilled. These conditions are identification, defamatory language, falsity, publication, fault resulting from “ill will” or negligence, and damages. The question is whether or not people can lie deliberately and not only get away with it, also profit from it. Harper-Collins made over $40 million on the book, Kyle estate made about $6 million. The movie, war propaganda at its finest, generated $ 300 million internationally.

Chris Kyle,

Chris Kyle,

The jury agreed with the plaintiff and awarded Ventura $1.8 million, 5% of Kyle Estate revenue that was covered by their insurance company. The passages were also ordered to be removed from the book. Ventura claims “All I wanted to do was clear my name,” also stating that this money will be used to pay off his two years of lawyer’s fees.

On June 19, Ventura announced on the Alex Jones Show, that 33 news media conglomerates have filed an Amicus Curiae, to involve themselves from the outside, with the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals for a verdict reversal. They claim to be seeking “An Alternative to Punitive Damages which cannot be levied to an estate.” These companies are A & E Television Network, Advance Publication Inc., American Society of News Editors, Association of Alternative News Media, Association of American Publishers Inc., The Authors Guild Inc., Buzzfeed Inc., the Center for Investigative Reporting Inc., Cox Media Group Inc., E. W. Scripps Cormpany, First Amendment Coalition, Forbes Media LLC, Gannett Company Incorporated, Gawker Media, Hatchet Book Group Inc., The Hearst Corporation, Landmark Media Enterprises, the Media Law Research Center, the Minnesota Newspaper Association, Motion Picture Association of America, Association of Magazine Media, National Association of Broadcasters, Press Photographers Association, National Public Radio Inc., New York Media LLC, New York Times, Newspaper Association of America, Washington Post, North Jersey Media Group Inc., Penguin Random House LLC, The Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press, Time Incorporated, Tribune Publishing Company LLC, WP Publishing Company LLC. Also, according to Ventura, the Minneapolis/ St Paul Star, from the State he was Governor, also intends to sue.

The consequences of a reversal will be devastating to individuals who do not have the financial resources to adequately defend themselves against, libel, slander, and defamation by major corporations. Defamation for profit will become legal. “What they are asking for is the ability to defame someone, make profit from it, and have the person who is defamed has no right(s). They get to keep all the profits,” he said, adding, “Where is the ACLU & other civil liberties groups and Media Groups?”

Apparently, these courts don’t do cases between June and August; so, it remains to be seen what the outcome will be.

NBC decided to retain Brian Williams, who seems to be the norm and not the exception in the controlled corporate media world. Meanwhile, whistle-blowers like CIA agent John Kiriakou go to jail for 30 months for uncovering the CIA torture, Bradley Manning goes to prison for 35 years for exposing war crimes, Edward Snowden is in exile in Russia for revealing billions of NSA felonies, and Director Julian Assange languishes in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, indefinitely.

This unprecedented case, which will no-doubt be one of those controversial 5-4 Supreme Court decisions, if allowed, could overturn all libel and slander laws. This massive assault can also overturn the entire system of redress for grievances. The precedent set in this case, a potential landmark, can bring all the people down. Malice of forethought with intent to do harm will be unlimited and go unchecked. With the immunity to lie about people for profit, anyone can be called a bomber, child molester, terrorist, or criminal by establishment media with no consequences.

This affects every American.

What should we know about Bilderberg?

Who Rules the World? — They Do!

King George III. Portrait by Johann Zoffany, 1771

King George III of England. by Johann Zoffany, 1771

One of twenty seven grievances listed against King George III in the Declaration of Independence is:  He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended legislation.

Who are they?

As Charlie Skelton recently wrote for the London Guardian, a Pulitzer Prize winning and internationally renown newspaper, Forget the G7, Bilderberg is where the real guns go.

They are a globalist, collectivist government cabal, run by corporations and international banking cartels. Through their ownership of the mainstream media outlets , they have kept their activities secret from Americans for decades by a directed press blackout.

"Prince Bernhard 1942" by Yousuf Karsh

“Prince Bernhard 1942” by Yousuf Karsh

The Bilderberg Group was founded on May 29, 1954 at the Bilderberg Hotel in Oosterbeek, Netherlands, and was hosted by Prince Bernhardt. They meet annually at different hotels in different counties throughout Europe, North America, and Asia. At least 120-150 of the most influential global power brokers gather in total secrecy. Under maximum overkill security conditions . This international conference of kings and queens, captains of industry, bankers, technology giants, mainstream media, and heads of state, and future political players gather to determine a consensus about political policies of the member nations and determine how to move forward with their agenda.  Today, Queen Beatrix, the owner of Shell Gasoline and the daughter of Prince Bernhardt, is the Honorary Bilderberg Chairperson, making her one of the most powerful women in the world.

After Over 50 years of denial, the advent of the internet and the rise of citizen journalism through the alternative media has forced them to publish a nonthreatening and incredibly boring Official Website.

According to Title 18 US Code, Section 953 (The Logan Act) makes it illegal for public figures to  conduct secret meetings with foreign elitists to set public policy in America because of the corruption that it breeds.  Attendance is a FELONY punishable by three years in prison.

His new book, Bilderberg: Facts and Fiction is available. Dice also acquired the tax returns for American Bilderberg for 2007 , 2008 , 2009 , and 2010.

What do they want? According to William Guy Carr’s Pawns in the Game (1956) and Eustace Mullins on page 55  of his 1983 book, Secrets of the Federal Reserve, a similar meeting took place in Frankfurt Germany in 1773.  Hosted by the Rothschild banking family, it calls for nothing short of “global governance” through a “New World Order,” terms that world leaders like Adolf Hitler, George H.W. Bush,  Bill Clinton, Senator Gary Hart, Tony Blair, Gordon Brown, Herman von Rumpoy, Al Gore, Henry Kissinger, John Kerry, Steven Harper,  Joe Biden, even Barak Obama have openly boasted.

How did they accomplish this?

In Endgame: Blueprint for Global Enslavement, a documentary film by Alex Jones, we meet Jim Tucker, the late investigative journalist who has tracked Bilderberg for decades. Also, Daniel Estulin talks about his international bestselling book The Bilderberg Group, translated into 21 languages. Included throughout are damning indictments of the globalists in their own words.

What have they done so far?

One Example of this is on page 7, Section V from the official 1955 Bideberg Report released in

2011, because that’s how long it takes, in which they openly admit it was always their intention to create the Euro Dollar and Economic Euro Zone 44 years prior to the 1999 implementation.

The Euro Zone is such a disaster for debtor nations like Greece, Italy, Portugal, and Spain as their unemployment rates have soared and they are taxed as a perpetuity for bank defaulting of loans. Creditor nations like Germany have populations that are resentful of loans their banks have made that cannot be repaid. As a result, the wealth of all nations involved is plundered and the middle classes are crushed.

The euphemistically called North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) was supported by

Kissinger when Democrat President Bill Clinton signed it it 1993. The Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP) of North America was signed by Republican President Bush and also supported by Kissinger. These are steps that lead America closer to a North American Union.  What will happen to the constitutions of Canada, Mexico, and the United States when they are merged?

The Current Agenda

The 29 chapters and 30,000 pages of the still secretive Trans Pacific Partnership creates an Asian Union and global government that is run by corporations. British investigative reporter Paul Joseph Watson from reports on the current state of Bilderberg 2015.

The official guests list does not include Jeb Bush or the Queen of England, who are also originally scheduled to be in the area during the meeting.

The 2015 Bilderberg Meeting 2015 is taking place at at the five star Interalpen Hotel Tyrol at Telfs-Buchen/Seefeld, Austria during the week of 11-15 June. The meeting not just criminal itself, there will be plenty of international criminals on the guest list. The attendees are a who’s who of representatives from the banking community, Many of the bankers who just paid $5.9 Billion in fines for market currency rigging (an infinitesimal fraction of what they made from the scam). General David Patreus, fresh from his conviction for leaking classified information will also be there.  His proclaimed “hero,” the 92 year old Henry Kissinger, a man implicated for multiple war crimes across the globe for decades, and even has arrest warrants issued against him in Europe, will continue his regular visit.

Here is the Agenda from the Official Web Site. Do you like international criminals deciding these topic policies for your country in secret illegal meetings?

How about the unofficial list?

Fierce resistance to the International corporate takeover of governments of sovereign nations through the TPP, the war on cash and precious metals, discrediting the UK from leaving the EU, and bypassing the US Congress, isolating Russia, opposing China and the BRICS counties resistance to the petrol-dollar system. and the Messina Group endorsement of Hillary Clinton for 2016 US presidency.

Sixty Years without comprehensive news coverage! Have you ever heard anything about this group in your life? The Total media blackout In America continues.

The Amendment Avenger salutes the entire team at Infowars for remaining at the tip of the spear in the front line consistent reporting with  boots on the ground at every Bilderberg meeting for the past decade.

In spite of it being carried on the popular news site in the world with over 11 billion visits a year, the Drudge Reoprt, there is no mention of it in the media without an occasional forced mention to remain relevant with added caveats of conspiracy theories. If 150 sports or Hollywood celebrities were having a secret party under maximum taxpayer funded security, it would be news.  Is it normal for people to want answers about 150 world leaders meeting in secret?

So why do media pundits ignore this story?

The words:  “We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost 40 years……It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supernational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national autodetermination practiced in past centuries,” are attributed to Trillionaire David Rockefeller at the 1991 meeting. This serves as a probable explanation for the lack of attention and even the outright denial of any knowledge of the existance of the group by the mainstream traditional media year after year.

Obama and Hillary Clinton are reported to have attended the meeting after he ditched the press in 2008 during the presidential campaign in Chantilly VA. The Manhunt for the two candidates proved fruitless for 48 over hours. To this day, they’re not talking about it.

Just as the North American Union (NAU) Parliament has been conducting their illegal meetings which have been mostly ignored by the mainstream media through the doctrine of implementation of stealth, preparing the Amero in the spirit of Bilderberg. These  meetings will continue as Americans remain in the dark. Ask any random person on the street in America,”What is the Bilderberg group?”, some people will even respond, “What? Build-a-Bear?”

Trans-Pacific POWER-GRAB

trans-pacific-partnership1The bounty is out on the greatest menace to all the liberties of human beings on planet Earth ever devised. Crowd-sourcing on the internet has enabled websites like Just Foreign Policy to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars through international donations to find out what’s really in the ultra-secretive Trans Pacific Partnership treaty (TPP).

Wikileaks, an internet activist group, has been given a task by concerned citizens of the world to leak the text of the most important trade deal in history, controlling over 40% of the global economy. Wikileaks Director Julian Assange has released three of the twenty nine known chapters. The first chapter is over 30,000 pages long. According to Assange, “Only five chapters deal with trade.”

Simply put. It would establish a new pillar of global unelected government run by corporations with impunity and in secret.

Members of Congress like Senator Wyden of Oregon or Representative Alan Grayson of Florida, who want to see the classified legislation, must submit a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, be escorted by armed guards to a locked room where they can read it one page at a time. They are forbidden to take notes or pictures and even discuss what they read. Most members of Congress have not even read this abridged version.

While thousands of people have worked on this deal for over fifteen years, especially during the last three years, only 600 elite individuals may have full access. About 500 of these individuals are corporate lobbyists for multinational corporations (Nimmo 2013).

The worldwide efforts of the people to find the details is incrementally paying off. The results are in and there has been quite an alarm generated in the online community.

  • Oh yes, and it will also kill jobs in America and outsource others

The Republican Senate joined a minority of Democrats to give “Fast Track” authorization to Obama to negotiate the TPP without their knowledge. Rep. Grayson referred to the provisions as “Massive giveaways of our sovereignty and massive undermining of our middle class” (Nimmo 2013).

No transparency. No congressional oversight. Changing the rules after codification is the antithesis of the rule of law.Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky attacked President Obama and demanded the TPP text be released so that it can be debated (Shabad 2015).

The House has just voted it down. That is good news for now; however, the battle is not over and they will be back for blood. They may try to slip it through under the radar on a weekend when most of Congress is not looking. Most Democrats opposed this “deal” under the pretense that it is a bad for America because it will outsource American jobs beyond the consequences of past treaties they supported during the Clinton administration like NAFTA and GATT.

Speaker of the House John Boehner, a Republican, was with the Obama on this one, pushing for Fast Track authority. Unlike Boehner’s predecessor, Nancy Pelosi, who spoke concerning health care bill, “We need to vote on the bill so that we can see what’s in it,” Senator Rand Paul stated “I believe we should be able to read the legislation before vote on it”

Three of the Twenty Seven grievances against King George III of England in the Declaration of Independence were:

1) No taxation without representation. We all should know that one from elementary school.

2) He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended legislation.

3) He has erected a multitude of offices, and sent hither swarms of officers to harass the people and eat out their substance.

With twenty six chapters still concealed, what other alarming and devastating surprises await?
The internet can be used to empower humanity or enslave it. With the ramrodding of the TPP, the Bilderberg meeting, and Operation Jade Helm, this summer will be interesting. When the Constitution is eviscerated, what kind of society will be built on the ashes? The internet is not only affecting new laws, it’s altering how policymakers are held accountable in the public eye, web users are shifting geopolitical paradigms in the tectonic struggles of the human species.

Amendment Avenger salutes for being at the tip of the spear in the battle to expose and defeat this elephant in the battlefield and killing this threat to freedom everywhere. The Republic and the planet was almost ruthlessly gang-raped for what Economic Hit Man John Perkins calls the “Corporatocricy.” They would have eviscerated most of what is left of America on the alter of globalism. This was close. If you’re not on high alert, your not paying attention. The lobbyists have gone way too far this time.

Good work America. Give Thanks. God has literally granted  us a temporary reprieve. What do we do with it in our personal lives and how do we hold these criminals accountable?

The battle rages on.

Individualism vs Collectivism


G Edward Griffin

G Edward Griffin

An Interview with the Bestselling Author, Lecturer, and Legendary Documentary Film Maker,   G. Edward Griffin

What is Individualism? What is Collectivism?

“It is the meat of all of almost all the matters that concern us.”

Collectivism: “It is behind all of the things that offend us and alarm us today. All the major leaders of the world believe in it without exception.”

G. Edward Griffin, the FIRST and Most Important Guest, returns to the Radio Show Earth

eartharchivemarch15-1024x576“All of the words we use to describe a political point of view are for the most part not very useful.” “They’re garbage in my opinion.” “Who can define a Liberal or a Conservative or Right Winger or a Left Winger or a Nazi or or Communist or Fascist or a Noe-Conservative or  a Moderate? The list goes on and on.”

“If you take away the symbols from the flags, the swastikas and the sickles and look at the underlying ideology, you will find the ideologies are the same.”

The Chasm: THE FUTURE IS CALLING  is a LIFE CHANGING phenomenal essay on Individualism, Collectivism, and the Creed of Freedom by G.Edward Griffin. It clearly illustrates the real ideologies that divide the western world and the differences between them. Included is the:

Confessions of an Economic Hit Man

John_Perkins_1John Perkins is a brave man.  After years of thoughtful consideration for the consequences, at great personal risk, he could not ignore his conscience any longer. In this bestselling autobiographical epic, Perkins reveals how the big game is really played. He should know, he was there; he made it happen.

From Indonesia to confessions-of-an-economic-hit-man2Ecuador, Panama to Iran, Economic Hit Men (EHM’s) are masters of the international shakedown for the Mega-Corporations and World Bank. Having fleeced nations for trillions of dollars worldwide through decades, this EHM tells all, from the  international to the personally intimate. The process and the players are exposed for those who dare to seek the truth. From bypassing congress in the Saudi Arabian money laundering affair in the 1970’s through the terrible attacks of 9/11, John Perkins delivers the goods from an insider perspective.

The Mission, the methods, the Interlocking organizations, the puppets, the masters, the secrets of manipulation, the villains, and the brutal repercussions for charismatic men of the people who could not be controlled are all laid out in Confessions of An Economic Hit Man.
