“If people let the government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as the souls who live under tyranny.” ~ Thomas Jefferson

“Each act, each occasion, is worse than the last, but only a little worse. You wait for the next and the next. You wait for one great shocking occasion, thinking that others, when such a shock comes, will join with you in resisting somehow. You don’t want to act, or even talk, alone; you don’t want to ‘go out of your way to make trouble.’ Why not?—Well, you are not in the habit of doing it. And it is not just fear, fear of standing alone, that restrains you; it is also genuine uncertainty.

“Uncertainty is a very important factor, and, instead of decreasing as time goes on, it grows. Outside, in the streets, in the general community, ‘everyone’ is happy. One hears no protest, and certainly sees none. You know, in France or Italy there would be slogans against the government painted on walls and fences; in Germany, outside the great cities, perhaps, there is not even this. In the university community, in your own community, you speak privately to your colleagues, some of whom certainly feel as you do; but what do they say? They say, ‘It’s not so bad’ or ‘You’re seeing things’ or ‘You’re an alarmist.’ Source [1]

Just a quick reminder on why Christianity is being driven from America

Roger Nash Baldwin, founder of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), leftist, anarchist, and Communist, was born in Wellesley, Massachusetts to comfortably situated parents, in 1884. Source

Separately, two Marxist theorists-Antonio Gramsci of Italy and Georg Lukacs of Hungary-concluded that the Christianized West was the obstacle standing in the way of a communist new world order.  The West would have to be conquered first.

Gramsci posited that because Christianity had been dominant in the West for over 2000 years, not only was it fused with Western civilization, but it had corrupted the workers class.  The West would have to be de-Christianized, said Gramsci, by means of a “long march through the culture.” 

The new battleground, reasoned Gramsci, must become the culture, starting with the traditional family and completely engulfing churches, schools, media, entertainment, civic organizations, literature, science, and history.  All of these things must be radically transformed and the social and cultural order gradually turned upside-down with the new proletariat placed in power at the top.

While there are conspiracies going on in the world today, the pursuit of world government now is no longer conspiratorial in the sense of being hidden or secret. Rather, it’s what socialist author H.G. Wells called “The Open Conspiracy,” as prominent people such as Bill Clinton have openly written in support of world government. [and presidents such as Bush have spoken of it] It will probably be a World Socialist Government, synthesizing western capitalism and eastern communism. In fact, Joseph Stalin in a speech at Sverdlov University in April 1924 pronounced that “the amalgamation and collaboration of nations within a single world system of economy… constitutes the material basis for the victory of socialism.” And regarding what world government will ultimately mean, it will be authoritarian and repressive, for as Lord Acton wrote: “Absolute power corrupts absolutely.” Source

The UN – Imperialism by any other name is imperialism all the same

Our votes this November weren’t worth a drop in a bucket.

According to Wikipedia:

Imperialism, defined by The Dictionary of Human Geography, is “the creation and maintenance of an unequal economic, cultural and territorial relationship, usually between states and often in the form of an empire, based on domination and subordination.” Imperialism has been described as a primarily western concept that employs “expansionist – capitalist and latterly communist – systems.” Source

“It will probably be a World Socialist Government, synthesizing western capitalism and eastern communism…”

“During then Governor Clinton’s 1992 presidential campaign, his Rhodes scholar roommate at Oxford University, CFR director Strobe Talbott, wrote in Time (July 20, 1992) that “perhaps national sovereignty wasn’t such a great idea after all…. But it has taken the events in our own wondrous and terrible century to clinch the case for world government.” For that article, Talbott would receive the World Federalist Association’s “Norman Cousins Global Governance Award,” and on June 22, 1993, President Clinton would send a congratulatory letter to the WFA regarding the award, saying that previous WFA president Norman Cousins had worked for world peace “and world government.” President Clinton ended the letter by wishing the WFA “future success.” The WFA’s objective is world federal government, and in 1994 it published The Genius of Federation: Why World Federation Is the Answer to Global Problems, in which it strategized: “Let the U.N. establish new agencies such as the International Criminal Court…. National sovereignty would be gradually eroded until it is no longer an issue. Eventually a world federation can be formally adopted with little resistance.” In November 2003, the WFA merged with the Campaign for United Nations Reform to form a new organization called Citizens for Global Solutions with the motto “Building a World Community Under Law.” [1] Source

Joe Biden was almost right when he said this of Brussels, “As you probably know, some American politicians and American journalists refer to Washington, D.C. as the ‘capital of the free world,… But it seems to me that in this great city, which boasts 1,000 years of history and which serves as the capital of Belgium, the home of the European Union, and the headquarters for NATO, this city has its own legitimate claim to that title.” Had Biden left out the word “free” then he would have been spot on target.

Ashley Mote (EU): “Mr President, I wish to draw your attention to the Global Security Fund, set up in the early 1990s under the auspices of Jacob Rothschild. This is a Brussels-based fund and it is no ordinary fund: it does not trade, it is not listed and it has a totally different purpose. It is being used for geopolitical engineering purposes, apparently under the guidance of the intelligence services.” “I have previously asked about the alleged involvement of the European Union’s own intelligence resources in the management of slush funds in offshore accounts, and I still await a reply. To that question I now add another: what are the European Union’s connections to the Global Security Fund and what relationship does it have with European Union institutions? “Recently, Ashley Mote of the European Union (EU) asked this volatile question in a public EU meeting, a question never answered, as Mr. Mote, merely by asking this question, was immediately scratched from the White House Christmas card list and placed on its top ten hit list. The World Socialist Government cash cow, grazing freely on the World wide pasture of greenbacks, isn’t called “Elsie” but instead is called the Global Security Fund, a name actually meaning in the secret cult’s language Global Terrorist Fund. In simple terms, it’s a gigantic illegal trust fund, estimated by undercover overseas financial investigators at 65 trillion dollars, set-up for “Illuminati rainy days” and established when it is desperately needed in a pinch for bribery, assassinations and sponsoring World wide terrorist activities to divert attention from their banking mafia. Although the fund is cloaked in secrecy and made possible by the Western civilization’ s Federal Reserve banking system, investigators trying to pry into the Illuminati’s secret treasure trove have uncovered some interesting facts.

Sometime ago I asked that if the UN condemns American “militarism”, why haven’t they done anything about it? As much as it pains me to write, I have come to believe that it is because the US military is the strong arm of the UN and has been for quite some time. Although I loath the man, Alan Greenspan was I believe the most honest when he said that we were in Iraq because Saddam and his Baathist régime was a threat to global oil supplies.

As to Afghanistan? We’re there for precisely the same reason the Ruskies were there. For the control of oil pipelines and poppy fields. Nothing more and nothing less.

“When Bill Clinton was first campaigning for the presidency, he took a “tough” stand concerning policy toward Communist China. However, over the years of his presidency, his policies toward that nation took a dramatically more friendly shift. On ABC’s “This Week” (March 15, 1997), Rhodes scholar and former Clinton administration communications director George Stephanopoulos (CFR member) revealed: “There were a lot of reasons the president changed his policy on China…. It had little to do with [Chinese] contributions.” And when Cokie Roberts on the same program, said, “It had more to do with American money,” Stephanopoulos replied: “Council on Foreign Relations, Lehman Brothers, Goldman-Sachs, absolutely.” Quite a few Rhodes scholars have occupied high-level positions with Goldman-Sachs over the years.” [1]

The Communist system in Russia was a “British experiment” designed ultimately to become the Fabian Socialist model for the British takeover of the World through the UN and EU. The British plan to takeover the World and bring in a “New World Order” began with the teachings of John Ruskin and Cecil Rhodes at Oxford University. Rhodes in one of his wills in 1877 left his vast fortune to Lord Nathan Rothschild as trustee to set up the Rhodes Scholarship Program at Oxford to indoctrinate promising young graduates for the purpose, and also establish a secret society [Royal Institute of International Affairs RIIA, which branched into the Round Table, the Bilderbergers, the CFR, the Trilateral, etc — Ed] for leading business and banking leaders around the World who would work for the City to bring in their Socialist World government.


A Letter to Generational Voters

A generational voter is one who votes for a particular political party simply because perhaps their mother and father voted for that party. Their parents may still vote for that party with no concept of what it actually represents.

Their knowledge of their chosen political party is limited to the irrelevant information and/or misinformation spoon-fed to them through the television. These people are stubborn and steadfastly refuse to acknowledge changes in their political party. Generational voters often make their voting decision based on what they feel is true regardless of information presented to them to the contrary. They are fans of traditional main-stream-media which is the only source of “news” information they ingest. Many simply don’t ever seek alternate sources and in some cases, they may not even know they exist. If they don’t see it on the evening news – they either don’t believe it or can’t comprehend it.

People are free to be stubborn but, if enough stubborn people are voting, a nation may suffer for their stubbornness.

You can be different and you must be for it is vital for a voting populace to be thoroughly informed and engaged when deciding who is elected to fulfill the role of the leader of a free republic. You can become wise to the truth of your political party or more importantly, to the character and ideological bent of the representatives of either or both political parties. There are good and just liberty-loving democrats as there are good and just liberty-loving republicans. There are greedy, power hungry democrats as there are greedy, power hungry republicans.

Americans – generational voters in particular have become complacent in their duty of protecting liberty. And as anyone who has ever worked knows well, tyranny is only a new director (or dictator) away. It is the same with national leadership. While you may not be able to choose your director at work, you do choose your national leadership – Nazi (National Socialist) Germany choose theirs.

Without wisdom one cannot detect errors in a current ideological worldview no matter how altruistic that worldview may seem. And wisdom cannot be gleaned through stubbornness. The ability to detect errors should enable the adjustment of ones perspective to be more aligned with reality and more importantly what contributes to liberty rather than detracts from it. But one cannot acknowledge these errors unless they have eyes open to factual information and historical precedence to identify them.

“Until they become conscious they will never rebel…” ~ George Orwell, 1984


I am not upper class elite nor am I even middle class bourgeois. I am a part of the common, low income, working class proletariat. The difference with me and those proletariat like me is that I do not covet my neighbors possessions, healthcare or wealth and this is not to imply that all others who are not like me do. The “social justice” seeking followers of the leftist community organizing agitators covet. I do not identify my happiness with wealth – they do. Most importantly I am continuously aware of the fact that it is my responsibility and nobody else’s to pursue my own happiness as I define it. It is also my responsibility to provide for myself and my family if I choose to have a family either by mistake or intent. Because ultimately, if you have “unplanned” children, you chose to have those children by choosing to have sex.

Even with its comparatively brief history of slavery (relative to the long and brutal history of slavery in Africa et. al.) and the oppression of blacks, America is known for providing an equal opportunity to succeed (which again, depends on ones perception of success). Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of happiness, I think, is an agreeable definition of the opportunity to succeed suggested by the Declaration of Independence. If this were untrue, would America be host to so many immigrants?

Could it be reasonable agreed upon that as long as one has an equal opportunity to pursue happiness, however one may define it, and as long as it in accordance with law; one could be considered equal in our society?

“To place a people into a victim group then, pander for their support and their vote on a promise that they will provide them with that which they did not earn encourages those people to exist in a perpetual state of poverty and thereby provides an unending voting base of generational victims.”

While one child may be born to wealth and have access to “superior” schooling, it is up to that child to take advantage of that schooling. Many don’t take advantage of it and fail. Some are cut off from the family wealth and some are allowed to leach from that wealth. Those who hold that wealth are at liberty to make these decisions. It’s not up to you, me or the government.

Another child may be born to poverty and have access to poor schooling. It is up to that child to take advantage of that schooling however substandard it may be. Many take advantage of what they have and are extraordinarily successful. I know of several exceptional individuals in my extended family who have done or are currently doing just this. Others don’t take advantage of it and fail and they don’t have family wealth to fall back upon. This is not your fault, my fault nor the governments fault nor is the fault of their environment as far too many in the same environment succeed for this to be the case.

If a persons parents choose to get in trouble, choose to ignore education and choose to avoid working hard to succeed, the offspring may very well have to struggle to succeed but, they can indeed succeed. The bad choices of another persons parents are not your fault, my fault nor the governments fault nor is the fault of their environment as far too many in the same environment succeed for this to be the case. Only one successful person emerging from poverty is sufficient evidence to contradict the charge that those born to poverty are destined to remain in poverty.

The preceding examples are facts. Because of this, it can soundly be insisted upon that the vast majority of Americans begin with an equal opportunity to succeed. If they don’t succeed, it is not your fault, my fault nor the governments fault nor is the fault of their environment as far too many in the exact same environment succeed for this to be the case. Furthermore, I submit that those who insist that people born to poverty are destined to remain in poverty do so to further their own power-seeking political ambitions. To place a people into a victim group then, pander for their support and their vote on a promise that they will provide them with that which they did not earn encourages those people to exist in a perpetual state of poverty and thereby provides an unending voting base of generational victims.

“The American people must regain the ability to distinguish between wants and needs and must shed the ridiculous notion that government exists to provide either. Our Constitution — drafted by men well acquainted with the abusive capacities of a centralized government — limited the roles and responsibilities of the federal government in order to allow the principle of self-government to flourish in the new nation. Government exists to preserve and protect the sphere of civil freedom within which we can work to meet our needs and our wants. Government does not exist to provide them.” ~ columnist Ken Connor 

If you have ever been caught up in a government system you know that there is no compassion. There is no subjective opinion to consider your individual circumstances. There are only unbending rules and regulations. Welfare breeds dependence on this rigid system. Dependence on someone or something grants them power over the dependant.

Currently there is a war in the West. It is one of the oldest wars in all of history: the war between the haves and the have-nots. However, it is a war which is being orchestrated through a long march through the culture by would-be-dictator political and economic elites. The intent of this war is not altruistic in the sense that it intends to provide for the have-nots. It is intended to divide We the People so as to be conquered and enslaved to those political and economic elites.

“You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.” ~ Dr. Adrian Rogers 

The political elite promise socialistic programs (and very often implement them to breed dependence and as a consequence – control) while enriching themselves through crony capitalism. Not to mention lobbyists and back-room deals.

In my daily readings I observe a trend from leftists, libertarians and conservatives alike – at least on the proletariat level. We are getting fed up with the new boss being the same as the old. Loosely, many leftists were rooting for Dennis Kucinich but, were given Obama and Clinton while Kucinich was labeled a kook. Libertarians’ man was Ron Paul and again, another kook according to the media, even the “right wing” media in general. Conservatives had Mr. Progressive-Light John McCain dumped on them. This was all determined at least a year before the visible primary’s during the invisible primary.

According to Charles Lewis, the director of the Center for Public Integrity, the invisible primary’s are “a private referendum in which the wealthiest Americans substantially preselect and predetermine who our next president will be… The hottest candidate in the check-writing sweepstakes is deemed ‘worthy’ by the major media via hundreds of news stories… All others are dubbed losers before the first [public] votes are cast.”

Why? Why do we have status-quo losers like Obama and McCain shoved upon us while statesmen who are genuinely aware of the forces behind the degradation of American exceptionalism and the trampling of our constitution and declaration of independence are shoved to the wayside? This is a rhetorical question – it answers itself. Because those who are enjoying their cozy existence on top of the world don’t really want change.

Go read some of the socialists sites. And I’m not talking about the progressive sites like KOS and AlterNet – these morons are bought and paid for by the political elite. I’m talking about the Communist Party USA, the World Socialist USA. They are disillusioned with Obama because they know exactly what he is. He’s another Bush. He’s another Council on Foreign Relations puppet. He’s a slave to the Federal Reserve and Wall Street just like daddy Bush and his doofus son were.

I happen to agree with Claire Wolfe who declared that, “America is at that awkward stage, where it’s too late to work within the system, but too early to shoot the bastards.” I read an article today that has got me thinking. Gene Schwimmer cited one of my favorite topics, the Cloward-Piven Strategy and in it he proposed that perhaps we should join them in crashing the system.

Now this is some pretty radical stuff so, hide your women and children.


“So let’s be honest: A lot of us would like to bring down the current system, too. So if we do in fact share, at least temporarily, Cloward-Piven’s intermediate goal, should we not at least consider working with, rather than against, them? Why not a Cloward-Piven-Rand Strategy whereby, simultaneously, we convince the innovators, inventors, and producers to stop innovating, inventing, and producing — and they convince every eligible American to apply for every available social program and lobby for government at all levels to create even more? Would our combined efforts not bring down the current system — a goal we both share — even faster?

Ultimately, the Cloward-Piven crowd’s path and ours would necessarily diverge, to put it mildly. But for the present, while we share a common goal, why not work together, just as America and the Soviet Union fought together in World War II? Later, when the war is won, when the common enemy — the current system — is defeated, we can go back to fighting each other.

And then may the better system prevail.”


“All obstructions to the execution of the laws, all combinations and associations, under whatever plausible character, with the real design to direct, control, counteract, or awe the regular deliberation and action of the constituted authorities, are destructive of this fundamental principle, and of fatal tendency. They serve to organize faction, to give it an artificial and extraordinary force; to put, in the place of the delegated will of the nation the will of a party, often a small but artful and enterprising minority of the community; and, according to the alternate triumphs of different parties, to make the public administration the mirror of the ill-concerted and incongruous projects of faction, rather than the organ of consistent and wholesome plans digested by common counsels and modified by mutual interests.

However combinations or associations of the above description may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely, in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion…” ~ George Washington warning us to “guard against the impostures of pretended patriotism.”


Does this mean to say that I am anti-capitalist? Of course not. Capitalism is the most liberty enabling economic system currently known to man. Does this imply that I am a slave to capitalism and can see no flaws? That it’s impervious to abuse?  Nein. I am perfectly aware that it can and has been abused. We the People have lost control of our government to capitalist elites. I don’t think there is one person here who would deny this.

We face unimaginably wealthy and powerful political elites who, contrary to their superficial ministrations, care nothing for the common man. Their claim that we should all embrace unfettered capitalism out of one side of their mouths while convincing us that government is the solution to all that ails us out of the other is a sirens call beckoning us to smash the brow of this galley named Liberty upon the rocks of statism to be sank eternally into the deep dark chasm of bondage. Welfare-loving proletariat leftists are the useful idiot means to their big government control ends. We the proletariat capitalists are just as useful to them through our deliberate blindness to the corruption of “our guy”. One either stands against statism and the empowerment of government or they assist in the takeover through direct action or inaction.

It is your duty as a voting American to protect our liberties against tyranny. To do otherwise would be to willingly fight against those of us struggling to protect them. It is your duty to use sound judgment to determine which policies detract from individual liberty and vote against them and those who propose them.

If you can not or do not do this through your informed vote – you, your sons and daughters may be forced to do it through bloodshed.

Last thoughts. What are three primary agendas of many current and past administrations in the Western world?

Expanding welfare – breeds dependence and therefore control

Instituting a federal government run healthcare system – breeds dependence and therefore control

Gun bans/restrictions – strips a populace of the ability to defend against tyrannical control
