You are living in Prison

There are many things that we only understand through it’s effects and not by the actual substance itself.  Electricity is one, Air is another.  You don’t see see, hear, taste electricity or air.  We can usually only see the effects of the things they do.  We see the wind blowing the trees and we see electricity turn on lights and motors running.  So how would you know your living in a prison when that is how you have lived all your life.  The Following article shows the effects of the Prison Planet the BORG have placed us into.  if it walks and quacks like a duck it must be a duck.  The BORG spends TRILLIONS continually telling us that we are FREE when nothing could be further from the truth.  Lucifer is the father of lies, and this lie is just par for the course.  The only difference is the level of oppression!  Many Freeworlders, with zero personal knowledge in this area, might feel uncomfortable learning this and not agree with this statement, however those that have had experienced life on the inside would be much more likely to agree.

Consider how the American Media continually bombards the population with propaganda that “We” Americans live in the Freest and best country (prison) or Human Farming, as Stefan Molyneux would say, yet the US has more people in cages in total and per capita than any other country (prison) in the world.

How Prisons work

Americans are not typically aware of how their federal and state prison systems work. What we think we know, we learned from watching television. When I took my first walk through at FCI (Federal Correctional Institution) El Reno Oklahoma as a new employee, I was surprised at how non-Hollywood real prison life is. Frankly, all I knew about prison life was what I saw on television or at the movies. Not even close.

As I got closer to retiring from the Federal Bureau of Prisons (FBOP), it began to dawn on me that the security practices we used in the prison system were being implemented outside those walls. “Free worlders” is prison slang for the non-incarcerated who reside in the “free world.”  In this article I am going to compare a number of practices used in federal prisons to those being used today in the “free world.”

You might find that our country may be one giant correctional institution.

Cameras & Movement Tracking

In federal prisons, cameras are everywhere. The reason, of course, is to help maintain security and keep track of prisoners. Inmates know that if they break any rules or policies, they can be readily identified if the event occurred in view of a camera. The cameras remind the inmates that they do not have any freedom or privacy, and that they live under total control.

Unfortunately, the “free world” is now subject to the widespread use of video surveillance and movement tracking.  This goes beyond cameras, which have become virtually ubiquitous now.  The federal government has been handing out grants to create sophisticated surveillance grids in cities across the country.

These surveillance grids frequently include license plate readers — some with the ability to log 1,200 license plates per hour, logging timestamps and location data — giving the government a way to track people and analyze their movement patterns.  Some cities post license plate readers to log every single vehicle that enters or leaves its boundaries.   Many cities have turned their police cars into roving data collectors by outfitting them with mobile license plate scanners.   A man from California discovered that he had been photographed 112 times over the course of a couple years — from just one police cruiser mounted with a license plate scanner!  The local databases of movement data are integrated with the federal government through its fusion centers located all over the country.

The government also has the ability to use facial-recognition software in conjunction with its surveillance grid to instantly identify individuals by comparing their photograph to biometric databases created using BMV photographs.  Facial recognition cameras can be set up to accurately identify a person against a database of millions of images in less than one second.  The government can then potentially log their locations and using the data for any purpose it wants.

As the usage of these technologies grows, the “authorities” will practically know where you are at any time.  The British have the greatest level of electronic surveillance in the world.  Their movements are said to be recorded 3,000 times a week.   The United States is not that far behind.  In some ways, with the numerous NSA spying programs, the USA leads the world in destroying personal privacy.  Today’s youngest generation will grow up never knowing what privacy is.

Drug Testing

The federal prison inmate drug abuse monitoring program has been going on for decades since the capability was invented.  At any time, a prisoner can be tested for intoxicants using urine, sweat, saliva, and hair samples taken by force.  After years of perfecting the process on inmates, it was introduced to the American public.

On September 15, 1986, President Ronald Reagan signed Executive Order 12564, establishing the goal of a Drug-Free Federal Workplace. Additionally, in 2010, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) finalized a new rule that allows federal agencies to use sweat, saliva and hair in federal drug testing programs that only tested urine.  Since then, many private businesses and corporations had to begin testing their employees in order to keep or obtain federal contracts. Under federal guidelines for employee testing, if a person takes medicine that was not prescribed to him, he has committed a federal drug abuse offense and may be fired.  Children in public schools are also subjected to involuntary random drug testing.

The inmates were the guinea pigs for a program now being regularly employed on Americans.  This process conditions Americans to be accustomed to regularly submitting bodily fluid samples to the government, lessening their resistance to data collection and intrusion in other areas.

Metal Detection & Weapon Confiscation

In prison, detection and confiscation of weapons is a necessity.  Prisoners cannot be allowed the freedom to possess objects that could potentially be used to cause harm to others.  The security of the facility relies on the prisoners remaining disarmed.

With that said, not even prisons can be guaranteed to be weapon free.  Inmates are clever, and can fashion any piece of metal into a makeshift weapon.  They are also prolific smugglers.  To mitigate this risk, prisoners and visitors are put through metal detector checkpoints to keep them disarmed.  Any metallic contraband is confiscated.

Treating prisoners this way is one thing.  In a prison setting, security trumps liberty.  The liberties of the inmates have been curtailed through due process on an individual basis.  But these prison tactics have crept out into the “free world.”  Now, virtually all government buildings use metal detectors to screen incoming visitors and even their own personnel.  This establishes a climate of fear of weapons and a false sense of security among those within such “weapon free zones.”  If a prison can’t proclaim to be weapon free, how can any place outside of prison make such arrogant and naive claims?

Crowd Control

Helmets, face shields, batons, knee guards, tear gas, wedge formations, line formations, half steps, full steps, pinning tactics — all of these phrases are associated with prison crowd control. As I look at today’s police and how they attempt crowd control it reminds me of my days in federal prison as the Hostage Negotiation Team (HNT) leader. The HNT worked closely with the Special Operations and Response Team (SORT) on both monthly local training and annual training at Fort Gruber in Muskogee Oklahoma. SORT membership is selective and highly practiced.  The teams must be familiar with hand signals and verbal commands, as well as certain maneuvers that are often referred to as “stomp and drag.”  These tactics are designed to help quell disturbances — the FBOP word for “riot” — by forcing inmates in the direction that SORT wants them to move.  This training takes place monthly for SORT members and annually for the rest of the FBOP staff.

The next time you see police engaged in crowd control on television you are watching what was perfected by prisons official through years of practice and real life action.  I participated in five disturbances.  After observing law enforcement agencies dress up in intimidating riot suits and mimic the behavior of SORT, it is clear that police are using prison tactics to intimidate and control civilian protesters.

Checkpoints & Random Pat Searches

In federal prison, all inmates are subject to an immediate pat search by any staff member, anywhere, at any time. If the inmate refuses, he or she is “arrested,” which entails being cuffed and escorted to administrative segregation — otherwise known as the jail within the jail.  The pat search is used to detect contraband.   All inmates returning from industrial work programs in medium and low security institutions are pat searched and metal detected before being allowed to return to their dorm.  Additionally, inmates in medium and low security institutions are pat searched when they leave food service or the “chow hall.”  In high and maximum security institutions, inmates are pat searched every time they move.  Movement in these institutions is highly controlled.

Compare this to police roadblocks and checkpoints used to perform warrantless searches for contraband.  When a person is stopped by city, county, or state police, they are visually inspected, asked questions concerning their activities, and may be asked to submit to a vehicle or personal search.  At federal roadblocks, a subject can be directed to a secondary search area at the discretion of the observing officer.  There, the person can be searched for contraband regardless of any objections, just like in a federal prison. There are dozens of federal roadblocks on roads in the southwestern United States, many of them permanent and located up to 100 miles away from the border.

It isn’t just drivers being put through such intrusion.  There is also the matter of “stop and frisk” searches which are taking place in several areas of the country.  These intrusive stops involve the stopping of a pedestrian for any reason, followed by being subjected to a police officer’s questioning and a warrantless search of their pockets, purses, bags, and property — just like a prisoner.

Mail Surveillance

Every piece of mail sent to an inmate in federal prison is opened, searched, and may be read depending on the dictates from the institutions intelligence office.  In medium and high security institutions, all mail is delivered to the unit officer unsealed so that it can be read before being delivered to the mail room.  Inmate mail  is controlled and may be copied if it is determined that there is possible criminal activity being discussed either blatantly or in code.  If something is detected it may be rejected and returned to the inmate if it violates policy.   Two examples of “rejected correspondence” are an inmate’s attempt to conduct unapproved business, or writing another inmate without permission.

Recent revelations have made it clear that Americans’ mail is being surveilled as well. The New York Times reported on how the United States Postal Service uses a “Mail Isolation Control and Tracking program” to create a permanent record of who is corresponding with each other via snail mail.  The program — secretly established in 2001 and not revealed for over a decade — assists the government in implementing blanket surveillance of every single resident of the United States.  Each piece of physical mail is photographed and stored in a database.  Law enforcement has unfettered access to this data without even the requirement of obtaining a warrant.  About 160 billion pieces of mail end up being recorded per year.

Telephone Monitoring

Is the NSA listening to your phone calls?

Is the NSA listening to your phone calls?

For decades the FBOP has possessed the capability to monitor outgoing telephone calls. However, their system required staff to sit and listen to the calls which took staff away from direct supervision of inmates. In the early 2000s, a new system was put in place that allowed any and every phone in an institution to be immediately monitored and the call recorded.

Just like in a federal prison, the NSA has the capability to track and monitor anyone’s phone conversations without recourse.  The agency can monitor text messages.  They can collect locations, times, and a log of every phone number that has been dialed by any phone in the United States.  The government can set up fake base stations to intercept phone calls.  They can hack the applications on a person’s smart phone and spy on their usage.  The NSA can even crack cellphone encryption.

Unlike the inmates who have no choice in the matter of telephone monitoring, the American people have been told about the spying but have decided not to do anything about it.

Lockdowns

When a correctional institution has its daily operations disturbed, often times it results in a lockdown. Lockdowns usually occur after a disturbance, weather concerns, inmate escapes, rumors of a disturbance about to occur, rumored escape attempts, and institution wide searches are some reasons to lockdown.

The most notable “free world” lockdown in recent memory occurred in Boston, Massachusetts. This lockdown mirrors a federal prison lockdown that is called when the entire institution is to be searched. That is exactly what occurred in Boston. In April 2013 the Boston suburb of Watertown was locked down to the point where no one could enter or leave the town, while 9,000 law enforcement personnel and military took part in searching just about every backpack, vehicle, and home that they could get away with.

Some of the searches were voluntary, but many were not.  As SWAT teams performed systematic house-to-house searches, videos were captured of families being ripped from their home without a warrant so the police could help themselves to the inside of their homes.  What resulted had the look of prisoners being removed from their cells by a SORT unit.  Watch for yourself:

The Watertown lockdown was practice for future declarations of martial law. Those tactics had been used and perfected in our prison systems for years. Now the “free world” is getting the prison treatment with little objection from the public.  The lockdown was not necessary and served mostly to measure the public’s reaction and to establish a sense of fear and intimidation. I think it worked.

Snitching

The last thing I want to mention is what I call the “Moscow Law.” While growing up during the cold war, I was taught that in the USSR, people were expected to watch their neighbors, strangers, and even family and friends, and report any suspicious activity to the local police. We in America have that law. Read it below. Did you know it exists?

 Title 18 U.S.C. § 4:  Misprision of felony: Whoever, having knowledge of the actual commission of a felony cognizable by a court of the United States, conceals and does not as soon as possible make known the same to some judge or other person in civil or military authority under the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.

In prison, there are “snitches” everywhere.  Believe me, they are not just the inmates, they are also staff.  Programs like Infragard are attempting to do the same thing in the “free world” as it is in the imprisoned world.  Once these programs get started, they are almost impossible to stop.  What are we paying our law enforcement to do?  Protect us or detect us?  You decide.

Irena Sendler Smuggles 2500 children out of Warsaw ghetto

Irena Sendler Saves children Irena Sendler
Died: May 12, 2008 (aged 98)
Warsaw , Poland
Irena Sendler memorial

During WWII, Irena Sendler got permission from the Nazi’s  to work in the Warsaw ghetto, as a  Plumbing / Sewer specialist.

She had an ulterior  motive. Irena smuggled Jewish infants out in the bottom of the tool box she carried. She also carried a burlap sack in the  back of her truck, for larger kids. Irena kept a dog in the back that  she trained to bark when the Nazi soldiers let her in and out of the ghetto.

The soldiers, of course, wanted  nothing to do with the dog and the barking which covered the kids/infants noises.

E1B3DBDDC1B346819CF95A727AB404F5@YOUR4E4487E7ED
During her time of doing this, she  managed to smuggle out and save 2500  kids/infants. Ultimately, she was caught,  however, and the Nazi’s broke both of her legs and arms and beat  her severely. Irena kept a record of the names of all the kids she had smuggled out,  in a glass jar that  she buried under a tree in her back yard.  After the war,  she did her best to locate any parents that may have survived and to reunite the families

.
Most had been gassed. Those kids she helped got placed into foster family homes or adopted.

Slide Show Wins Peace Prize

In 2007 Irena was up for the Nobel Peace Prize. She was  not selected. Politician, Al Gore won, for a slide show on  Global Warming. Later another politician, Barack Obama, won for his work as a community organizer for  ACORN.

In  MEMORIAM – 65 YEARS LATER
I’m doing my small part by  forwarding this message. I hope you’ll consider doing the  same.  It is now more than 67 years since the Second World War in Europe ended. This  article is  a memorial chain,  In memory of the six  million Jews, 20  million Russians, 10 million  Christians and 1,900 Catholic priests who were  murdered, massacred, raped, burned, starved and  humiliated! Now, more than ever, with  Iran , and others,  claiming the HOLOCAUST to be ‘a myth’, it’s imperative to  make sure the world never forgets,because there are others who would like to do it again. This e-mail is intended to reach  40 million people worldwide!

Join us and be a link in the memorial  chain and help us distribute it around the  world. Please send this e-mail to people you  know and ask them to continue the memorial chain. Please  don’t just delete it.. It will only take you a minute to pass  this along.

2014 The Year of Bitcoin

Patrick L Young is expert in global financial markets working in multiple disciplines, ranging from trading independently to running exchanges.Published time: December 31, 2013 05:35

Like it or love it, bitcoin has been a constant theme of headlines for the past year, as 2013 marked its coming of age.

Last year’s nerd money fad has become this year’s most talked about product.

Ultimately, nature abhors a vacuum and with western political leadership an increasingly distant memory, citizens are becoming increasingly restive about the parlous state of financial governance. Throughout the West, the ravages of quantitative easing [QE] have helped the wealthiest prosper, while ordinary citizens have struggled through a grinding economic plight, which has left voters feeling increasingly abandoned by government.

Into this void has stepped something which had been mooted for many years: a popular electronic currency. Bitcoin is filling a gap self-interested central bankers are keen to suggest doesn’t need filling. Establishment media has been wrong-footed as the Copernican Revolution in finance creates not just bitcoin but a series of parallel financial universes where independent money is at the center of commerce, as opposed to government manipulated fiat currency.

Meanwhile, bitcoin may not be the cryptocurrency the world uses in a decade and the biannual obituaries may yet prove right! As 2013 concluded, BTC’s value had multiplied albeit off its highs after the Bank of China endeavored to close the door to the threat of a backdoor floatation of the renminbi.

In reality, BTC is still remarkably small – growing exponentially from about 142 million dollars to circa 8 billion by Christmas. In other words, the total value of bitcoin amounts to the annual GDP of the Bahamas. Clearly bitcoin isn’t economically significant, yet. However, it now has its first ATM and many have bought beers, lattes and even homes with BTC this past year.

Naturally bankers of all shades are scared of losing their monopolist grip on money, yet given the vast inefficiency of their decrepit systems, it is probably already too late. Decentralized money is an idea whose time has come. Bitcoin is the breakthrough currency creating a widespread consciousness that there is an alternative to holding greenbacks, or lugging a trunk full of gold around.

Perhaps the most surprising thing about bitcoin is, in essence, the banality of the arguments. When all else fails, skeptics just cry tulipmania. Indeed, bitcoin bubbled and almost halved in value before the year’s end, but then again, thanks to the idiocy of the banker-government nexus in the last decade, just about every asset bubbled then and a great deal are bubbling now, like art and classic cars, thanks to QE [quantitative easing].

Yes, people steal bitcoins and these thefts are techno-mythologized by scaremongering media. Yet stealing bitcoin is just a virtual variant of traditional pickpocketing. Indeed BTC has been used to finance crime, just like the dear old anonymous bearer bond dollar is beloved of drug cartels. Some American security agencies have expressed concern about their lack of control over bitcoin, but they had an annus horribilis, during which, despite their vast overarching eavesdropping capacity, they still failed to see their own currency woes coming.

While price inflation is the first thing everybody recalls about bitcoin in 2013, what really defines its incredible year was how it slipped out of nerds’ virtual wallets into the mainstream. An 8 billion dollar asset leveraged its value to dominate the headlines and gain widespread recognition. Germany legalized it and many nations acknowledged it – even the US courts. That Norway called it an asset was seen as a dreadful slight; rather it was a splendid incremental step to wider appreciation. In the end, China and Thailand pushed back against the bitcoin juggernaut. The latter is hardly of global economic significance, while the former maintains a closed currency regime.

The year of bitcoin began with the currency on the fringes of digital society, but by the end of the year it was clearly “merging with the mainstream”. Decentralized crytocurrency is still in its infancy but the argument against central bankers’ follies is being won across the globe. After all, you can’t ‘clip’ bitcoin to degrade its value, nor can you inflate its value with QE or other flawed government policies.

2013 ended with citizens increasingly alienated from government as a monetary ally and edging closer to “In Bitcoin we Trust”. Bitcoin itself may only be the first stage of a revolution, similar perhaps to the Netscape browser at the birth of the web, or the Ford Model T which popularized automobile transport. Ultimately, however you look at it, this was the year when bitcoin made its irrevocable mark on history.

America’s Roads are now a Money Stream / Surveillance Grid

Our roads are slowly but surely being transformed into a revenue generating control grid.  And this is just yet another example of how government feels the need to constantly watch, monitor, track and regulate everything that we do.

America’s Roads Money Stream Surveillance Grid

by Michael Snyder
Economic Collapse Blog
May 10, 2013

What do speed traps, parking tickets, toll roads, speed cameras and red light cameras all have in common?  They are all major revenue sources for state and local governments.  All over America today there are state and local governments that are drowning in debt.

Many have chosen to use “traffic enforcement” as a way to raise desperately needed revenue.  According to the National Motorist Association, issuing speeding tickets raises somewhere between 4.5 billion and 6 billion dollars in the United States each year.  And the average price of a speeding ticket just keeps going up.

Today, the national average is about $150, but in many jurisdictions it is far higher.  For example, more than 16 million traffic tickets are issued in the state of California each year, and the average fine is approximately $250.  If you are wealthy that may not be much of a problem, but if you are a family that is barely scraping by every month that can be a major financial setback.  Meanwhile, America’s roads are also being systematically transformed into a surveillance grid.

The number of cameras watching our roads is absolutely exploding, and automated license plate readers are capturing hundreds of millions of data points on all of us.  As you drive down the highway, a police vehicle coming up behind you can instantly read your license plate and pull up a whole host of information about you.  This happened to me a few years ago.

I had pulled on to a very crowded highway in Virginia and within less than a minute a cop car had scanned me and was pulling me over because one of my stickers had expired.  But these automated license plate readers are being used for far more than just traffic enforcement now.

For example, officials in Washington D.C. are now using automated license plate readers to track the movements of every single vehicle that enters the city.  They know when you enter Washington, and they know when you leave.  So where is all of this headed?  Do we really want to live in a “Big Brother” society where the government constantly tracks all of our movements?

Back in the old days, the highways of America were great examples to the rest of the world of the tremendous liberties and freedoms that we enjoyed.  Americans loved to hop into their vehicles and take a drive.  But now government is sucking all of the fun out of driving.  The control freak bureaucrats that dominate our political system have figured out that giant piles of money can be raised by turning our roads into revenue raising tools.

At this point things have gotten so bad that even some police officers are admitting what is going on.  Just check out what a few of them told Car and Driver

The president of a state police union isn’t pretending it doesn’t happen. James Tignanelli, president of the Police Officers Association of Michigan union, says, “When elected officials say, ‘We need more money,’ they can’t look to the department of public works to raise revenues, so where do they find it? Police departments.

“A lot of police chiefs will tell you the goal is to have nobody speeding through their community, but heaven forbid if it should actually happen—they’d be out of money,” Tignanelli says.

Police Chief Michael Reaves of Utica, Michigan, says the role of law enforcement has changed over the years. “When I first started in this job 30 years ago, police work was never about revenue enhancement, but if you’re a chief now, you have to look at whether your department produces revenues,” he says. “That’s just the reality nowadays.”

And as the economy has gone downhill, many jurisdictions have massively jacked up traffic fines.  According to the Los Angeles Times, various traffic fines in the Los Angeles area are far higher than they once were…

If you’re caught running a red light in Los Angeles, be prepared to shell out $446, up from $271 eight years ago. Make a rolling right turn at a stoplight and the ticket comes to $381 — more than double what it cost in 2008.

And of course the cost to the driver does not end with the ticket.  Your car insurance will likely go up as well.  In fact, one study found that a driver that just gets one speeding ticket will pay an additional 20 percent for car insurance for the next three to six years.

That can add up to a lot of money.

But politicians just keep wanting to find a way to issue even more tickets.  One of the hottest trends all over the country is to automate the issuing of traffic tickets by installing cameras.  According to USA Today, this has become a huge growth industry…

Sales of the cameras have nearly quadrupled since companies moved to digital and wireless technology in the mid-2000s. The number of local contracts for cameras was up to 689 last year, from 155 in 2005, according to industry data complied by market leader American Traffic Solutions (ATS).

And these automated traffic cameras can raise an enormous amount of cash.  Just check out what has been happening in Washington D.C.…

The speeding and traffic light cameras have become more lucrative as their number in the District has increased. Combined, they issued tickets valued at $24.4 million in 2007. That figure more than doubled by 2010, to $50.9 million, and it reached $84.9 million in the last fiscal year.

But as annoying as those traffic cameras are, automated license plate readers are perhaps even more insidious.

The amount of data that these automated license plate readers are capturing is astounding.  The following is from a recent article by the Electronic Frontier Foundation

Photographing a single license plate one time on a public city street may not seem problematic, but when that data is put into a database, combined with other scans of that same plate on other city streets, and stored forever, it can become very revealing. Information about your location over time can show not only where you live and work, but your political and religious beliefs, your social and sexual habits, your visits to the doctor, and your associations with others. And, according to recent research reported in Nature, it’s possible to identify 95% of individuals with as few as four randomly selected geospatial datapoints (location + time), making location data the ultimate biometric identifier.

Our license plates have essentially become “our papers” which the government can read whenever it would like without even asking for our permission.

According to L.A. Weekly, local police agencies in the L.A. area have captured more than 160 million data points on private citizens using these automated license plate readers…

L.A. Weekly has learned that more than two dozen law enforcement agencies in Los Angeles County are using hundreds of these “automatic license plate recognition” devices (LPRs) — units about the size of a paperback book, usually mounted atop police cruisers — to devour data on every car that catches their electronic eye.

The L.A. County Sheriff’s Department and the Los Angeles Police Department are two of the biggest gatherers of automatic license plate recognition information. Local police agencies have logged more than 160 million data points — a massive database of the movements of millions of drivers in Southern California.

Each data point represents a car and its exact whereabouts at a given time. Police have already conducted, on average, some 22 scans for every one of the 7,014,131 vehicles registered in L.A. County.

As the use of these devices becomes more widespread and they become even more sophisticated, eventually the government will know where almost all of us are and what almost all of us are doing at all times.

The following is a brief except from a Washington Post article that detailed how automated license plate readers are now being used to create a “dragnet” that will track the movements of all vehicles from the time that they enter Washington D.C. to the time that they leave

More than 250 cameras in the District and its suburbs scan license plates in real time, helping police pinpoint stolen cars and fleeing killers. But the program quietly has expanded beyond what anyone had imagined even a few years ago.

With virtually no public debate, police agencies have begun storing the information from the cameras, building databases that document the travels of millions of vehicles.

Nowhere is that more prevalent than in the District, which has more than one plate-reader per square mile, the highest concentration in the nation. Police in the Washington suburbs have dozens of them as well, and local agencies plan to add many more in coming months, creating a comprehensive dragnet that will include all the approaches into the District.

This is just the beginning.

For now, as long as you carefully obey all traffic laws and you don’t work in a major city like Washington D.C., the changes that are happening probably do not affect you too much.

But the key is to see where all of this is going.  Our roads are slowly but surely being transformed into a revenue generating control grid.  And this is just yet another example of how government feels the need to constantly watch, monitor, track and regulate everything that we do.

Does anyone else feel like the life is slowly being choked out of our society, or am I alone?

Tesla Morpheus Neo C - Note USS Arizona

I am fund raising for Adam Kokesh to be present to at the dedication for the memorial of the guns for the USS Arizona and Missouri. This is an awesome opportunity to get out and be with the peeps, as I might say.  There is an expected crowd of 6,000 – 7,000 and a good opportunity to mingle and talk to people who are at least awake enough to come to the dedication.  IMSHO a crowd that would be open to hearing some information that our hero, and he is in my eyes a effing hero, Adam Kokesh to talk to the crowd.  We can get him there I will do everything I can to get him on the stage.  Remember 90% of success is just showing up.  That is what Adam did: He stood up, I am standing up, you can stand up!  Reach into your wallet and help me get him here to Phoenix, Arizona December 7, 2013 starts at 9:15  Lets all hang out at the dedication at 4:20 too

The guns were discovered in a boneyard and thru the secretary of state Ken bennett was able to orchestrate the display With Out the use of public funds

The assistant to the secretary of state told me in an interview they are expecting 6000 – 7000 people in attendance! Most importantly the whole exhibit was paid for with donations from our business Community.  There were no public funds used in the creation of this USS Arizona and USS Missouri monument.

Adam was featured on the radio show Coast to Coast, which has 500 stations on November 10 2013. The interviewer was John B. Wells who gave Neo a great soapbox to talk about his  act of civil disobedience,  on July 4, 2013 Neo racking a 12 gauge shotgun in “Freedom Plaza” with the United States capital in the background.  His home was then “Raided”.  This is one of the government uses to lessen the blow of the criminal acts they engage in.  “Raided” in this case means watching your home and everything in in gets ripped apart in front of your very eyes while you and your housemates and girlfriend are made to watch your RAPE of your property! Then you get “thrown in Jail” most people out there have no idea what this is like.  First off all your pretend friends make off with all your stuff.  Then you lose everything else unless your good friends and family help you out. Now your in Solitary.  Most of you will never know the torture of this.  Now some how they let him out.  hes still facing 2.5 years or something.  I believe the justice department just wants  him to go away.   Some compare him to a modern day Jesus Christ!

I am committing myself to getting Adam Kokesh to Arizona for the dedication of the USS Arizona and USS Missouri Guns on Dec 7 2013 at 9:15 am at the Westley Bolin Plaza to the east of the Arizona Capitol on Washington street and 17th Avenue  making this happen If you’re down to make this happen please consider a donation of any amount.

In the event that the government denies him travel,  and the case could be made that he needs to travel because he is a investigative Journalist.  I have a very strong backup, we raise enough Frn$ I will get them both, promise you like who I have in mind!

BORG Agents: Armed, Brutal and Cowardly

On Tuesday in Santa Rosa, California, two of that city’s “finest” BORG Agents cowered behind a car door and gunned down a thirteen-year-old boy carrying a toy rifle. This little boy, Andy Lopez Cruz, was walking down the street with a fake plastic rifle when the two “heroes” boldly got out of their police cruiser, hid behind the passenger side door, and called out to him. When Andy reacted like any human being would and turned to face them, our brave boys in blue shot a child carrying a toy, because they were scared.

Physical courage is hardly the highest virtue, nor one linked particularly closely with any other measure of moral worth. But physical courage is a virtue all the same, and one sadly lacking today in our cowardly police departments, who hide behind a comical array of war machines and gun down anyone of any age or species who inspires the slightest tremor of fear in their faint hearts. Family pets, the mentally disabled, the elderly — seemingly anything that can move can terrify our brave police officers, so overwhelming them with abject, presumably pants-wetting fear that they draw their weapons and open fire willy-nilly on whatever has their teeth chattering in terror.

In July in Hawthorne, California, a BORG police officer was so overcome by fear at the sight of a little doggy less than a quarter his size that he had no choice but to fire five shots into the animal in front of its owner. Of course one can hardly blame the officer in question, as he only had three of his colleagues there with him and could not possibly have prevailed against the ferocious animal, which reached nearly to the officer’s waist when on its back legs. Letting the owner calm the animal down was also plainly not an option, as the owner was a dangerous villain guilty of a heinous crime — annoying the police while black.

In January in Maryland, a 26-year-old with Down’s syndrome and a reported IQ of 40 was murdered by not one, not two, but three off-duty BORG police officers because he dared try to see a movie twice without buying a second ticket. The possibility that such an offense might not be worth taking a man’s life over never occurred to our fearless officers, who were put in mortal fear of their lives by his anger at being asked to leave that they were forced to tackle him and “subdue” him until he asphyxiated. Down’s syndrome has such a classic, easy-to-spot presentation that even lay people can readily diagnose it in newborns, but it seems these heroic officers had never watched “Life Goes On.” And who can blame them for their fear? Their victim stood all of 5’6” and weighed nearly 300 pounds, presumably all muscle.

In June, back in California, BORG police officers with the Los Angeles Police Department thought they smelled the trademark smell of someone enjoying an illegal chemical and burst into the home of an eighty-year-old man who, startled in the night by strangers in his home, drew a gun and was immediately killed by a fusillade fired by the heroic officers in question, who boldly executed an old man in his bed. Why these officers could not explain who they were or back out of the room to avoid the old man’s fire is unknown, but one thing is certain — we are all safer now that this eighty-year-old man cannot brandish a pistol at strangers who burst into his bedroom in the middle of the night.

Discussions of police abuses usually turn back to policies and procedures that should be changed and the need for increased accountability. These things are important, but also important is addressing the unbelievable degree of cowardice we tolerate in our police officers today. If you’re so afraid of danger that you’re a danger to those around you, you have no business in any kind of dangerous job and should consider going to work in some nice comfy office somewhere. Physical courage isn’t the greatest virtue, but it is a virtue all the same.

Seeds Of Death – Monsanto vs HumanityMonsanto devolution humanity

The leaders of Big Agriculture–Monsanto, DuPont, Syngenta–are determined that world’s populations remain ignorant about the serious health and environmental risks of genetically modified crops and industrial agriculture. Deep layers of deception and corruption underlie both the science favoring GMOs and the corporations and governments supporting them.

This award-winning documentary, Seeds of Death, exposes the lies about GMOs and pulls back the curtains to witness our planet’s future if Big Agriculture’s new green revolution becomes our dominant food supply.

Today the vast majority of foods in supermarkets contain genetically modified substances whose effects on our health are unknown. As a medical doctor, I can assure you that no one in the medical profession would attempt to perform experiments on human subjects without their consent. Such conduct is illegal and unethical. Yet manufacturers of genetically altered foods are exposing us to one of the largest uncontrolled experiments in modern history.”   Martha Herbert, MD, Harvard University School of Medicine.

During the past decade, there has been a growing awareness about the limitations and dangers of genetically modified foods and chemical industrial agriculture now threatening the health, lives and environment across the planet.  The pro-GMO community, including food companies and federal and state legislators, hearken bioengineering as the solution for maintaining the world’s food supply in the future.  However, to date there has been no scientific evidence to substantiate this claim.  Dr. John Fagan, a former genetic engineer at the National Institutes of Health, has stated,

“Crop genetic engineering as practiced today is a crude, imprecise and outmoded technology. It can create unexpected toxins or allergens in foods and affect their nutritional value. Recent advances point to better ways of using our knowledge of genomics to improve food crops that do not involve GM.”

NSP – Oct 5, 2013 – Guest: Bernard von NotHaus and Co-hosts: JT & Calvin

Posted on October 5th, 2013 by Calvin

GuestBernard von NotHaus, the “domestic terrorist” you can call a hero, who founded and operated the Liberty Dollar. In part 2 of the podcast, co-hosts JT & Calvin join to discuss a myriad of topics.

Show Notes:

  • Background of the judge and jury [coercive parties] that led to a honest businessman, who was earning a living on 100% voluntary trade [non-coercive party], to exit the Orwellian sphincter as a “unique form of domestic terrorist.”
  • 15-year anniversary of the Liberty Dollar.
  • Properly describing the “charges” of the STATE in objective terms.
  • The Liberty Dollar was meant to be a parallel currency, not a competing currency.
  • Anne Tompkin’s ceremonial, PR role on the FBI’s prepared predetermined-verdict press-release.
  • The lack of actual violence in Bernard’s case despite their smear campaign of “a unique form of domestic terrorist.”
  • The inherent lying nature of prosecuting attorneys.
  • Applicability of the constitution and codes, or otherwise known as jurisdiction, was not addressed before or during the trial.
  • The severe abundance of ineffective council from two “dumb and dumber” cult-members spawned from the STATE-cult bar.
  • The sensational theatrical performance of the prosecuting attorney’s opening and closing statements and remarks.
  • Being judged by a jury that is dependent on the judge’s and prosecutor’s income revenue.
  • Sissy prosecutors that don’t believe in objecting during a closing argument.
  • Objecting to everything that exposes the facade of fairness and impartiality of the judge, who is paid by the same party as the prosecutor. [conflict-of-interest much?]
  • How do you go about proving beyond a reasonable doubt that Mr.___ actually violated the code if you haven’t first determined whether the code actually applies to Mr.___?
  • Despite the lack of a deceitful nature required to convict someone as a fraud, how can you call a $10 product that appreciated to a $30 value a fraud?
  • Selective witness testimony allowed in favor of the prosecution.
  • Qualifying the witnesses by their personal firsthand knowledge on certain elements of the charges.
  • Examining and evaluating the judge’s fairness and impartiality.
  • Circumstantial evidence that suggests the jury did not read the jury instructions from the judge.
  • No objections from the DOJ on the motion for acquittal filed after the sham trial.
  • A surprise letter flood and to the judge and numerous favorable op-ed articles in support of Bernard.
  • Filing a Brady request to disqualify witnesses that have a known history of dishonesty while on the stand under penalty of perjury.
  • Looking forward to getting back to business after a fair acquittal.
  • Reviewing Bernard von NotHaus’ Liberty Dollar persecution for his rampage of voluntarily trading with his customers.
  • The business network that worked with and supported the Liberty Dollar.
  • Statism: Ideas so good they have to be mandatory.
  • Threats made during Bill’s hearing: “I’ll be the last friendly face you see.”
  • Using abstract terms (reification) to obfuscate the gun in the room.
  • Ditching abstracts to objectively define each character’s roles in a typical legal attack.
  • “I know a guy, who knows a guy, who knows a guy,” and other predictive logical fallacies judges and prosecutors revert to for establishing jurisdiction.
  • Vox et praeterea nihil: voice and nothing more. So in practical terms; beyond your say so, where’s the evidence that your laws apply to me?
  • Conditioned behavioral responses to authoritah who justify their demands by claiming “its the law.”
  • The Chaser’s War on Everything experiment of people who blindly accept illusions of authority and end up accepting citations for “douche-bag tattoos.”
  • Larken’s contribution to destroying illusions of authority with his video “I’m Allowed to Rob You.”
  • Examining the biased opinions, and lack of objective criticism, from those who’s entire lives are dependent on the STATE’s blood-money.
  • Building your opinions on facts and evidence.
  • Statist double-standards when identifying failure in a case when the judge rules against them.
  • Their words, according to the government’s own mandate (the founding and guiding documents), and how it conflicts with what they actually say and do in reality, like proceeding with an unjusticable case.
  • The STATE prosecution accuses Marc of arguing abstractions while he’s attempting to decipher their abstractions.
  • The bar association cult.
  • The jealousy of attorneys that don’t get as reproducible results as those of us who persistently question the evidence without spending tens-of-thousands on a law degree.
  • Pro per-litigant felony cases that have been kicked out of court by questioning the evidence without having to get to the point of trial.
  • Why do they say that jurisdiction can be challenged at any point of litigation, but they don’t allow the challenge of jurisdiction in reality? Why is it part of their cannons?
  • Keeping CITIZENS dependent on the STATE by use of intimidation and fear control techniques.
  • Replacing monopolized STATE services with voluntary alternatives.
  • Defining psychopaths in accordance with the medical definition.
  • Bureaucrats that don’t feel the need to answer any questions despite them destroying innocent lives.
  • Do we need a group of psychopaths ruling over us?
  • The Angola Three: a story the lucid epiphanies of surviving 40+ years of solitary confinement: the world is a prison, the security-level is the real difference.
  • Government Explained inspired by Larken Rose’s talk at the Free Your Mind Conference 2011.
  • ‘Rowdy’ Roddy Piper Drops Bombshell: “They Live” Was A Documentary.
  • The logical parallels between the Idocracy court scene and Quatloos rhetoric.
  • Replacing mass extortion [taxes] with a voluntary system.
  • Fined via taxes for opting-out of Obamacare.
  • Dirty tricks from the tax bureaucrats.
  • Your stolen income at work: agorist-based Silk Road shut down by the Feds.
  • Government offenders of child-exploitation.
  • Government, that commits massive murder-for-hire everyday, condemns an individual for alleged murder-for-hire. Double-standard much?
  • European Parliament Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs hearing on NSA revelations: Jacob Appelbaum, Thomas Drake, Jesselyn Radack, and J. Kirk Wiebe.
  • Steven Colbert’s Jon Stewart’s interview with Richard Dawkins about the likelihood of mutually-assured destruction by the sociopathic ruling-class before making contact with extraterrestrial beings.
  • Death by bureaucrat as documented on many websites like CopBlock.org.
  • It doesn’t matter if the deadly intruder is costumed or not when they choose to invade your home, protect yourself with the necessary force required to neutralize any imminent deadly threats.
  • How the government “shut-down” is affecting Marc’s work.
  • Increase in traffic efficiency and safety when BORG government traffic lights are removed.
  • Lack of chemtrails due to the government “shut-down?”
  • FAA strikes law for powering down electronic devices before takeoff and landing.
  • The collective conformist perception that its extremist to be anti-authority or anti-government, but somehow its acceptable to be anti-authoritarian or anti-NAZI.
  • New study shows that it doesn’t matter on intelligence, people would alter their answers based on the confirmation bias based upon their political beliefs.

Surveillance Is only for Peons

The political class will not be spied on

By

Antiwar.com

We’re supposed to believe BORG President Obama had no idea the NSA was spying on Angela Merkel’s cell phone, but the Liar-and-Thief was effectively refuted by his own underlings when NSA spokeswoman Vanee Vines huffily told the Wall Street Journal:

“The agency’s activities stem from the National Intelligence Priorities Framework, which guides prioritization for the operation, planning and programming of U.S. intelligence analysis and collection.”

The NIPF is essentially a list of intelligence targets that sets the general parameters of US covert surveillance activities in various countries, and is personally approved by the President. It’s therefore well nigh impossible Obama didn’t know about the NSA’s surveillance of Merkel, not to mention all the other world leaders we’ve been keeping tabs on. It may very well be that spying on Merkel began in 2002, before she was elected, but the German paper Bild am Sonntag – citing a “U.S. intelligence worker involved in the NSA operation against Merkel” – is reporting the President personally approved the surveillance in 2010, when he was informed of it by NSA chief Gen. Keith Alexander.

It’s fun to watch the consternation in Obama-land as the blowback from the Snowden revelations lands on Washington’s doorstep in the form of angry phone calls from world leaders. Of course, most of them were to some extent complicit when the NSA wanted to spy on their countrymen: in Germany, the intelligence services cooperated with the Americans, as the Brits certainly did, along with the French. It’s just that they thought they were personally exempt.

Their outrage is echoed by BORG Sen. Dianne Feinstein, once the Senate’s biggest champion of the BORG Surveillance State, who is now on the warpath because of the Merkel eavesdropping scandal. After announcing she is “totally opposed” to NSA spying on our European allies, she declared her intention to conduct a comprehensive formal review of US intelligence-gathering programs.

While many commentators remarked that if the NSA has even lost Feinstein they’re screwed, the oddity of her unexpectedly harsh reaction was pointed out by Spencer Ackerman and Dan Roberts writing in the UK Guardian: “Her position,” they noted, “left many longtime intelligence observers puzzled. NSA spying on foreign leaders is far more traditional than its domestic bulk collection, which Feinstein has not criticized. Regardless of Feinstein’s motivations, intelligence veterans seemed to understand that the political momentum is not on their side.”

Yes, but what is her motivation, anyway? It seems to me worthwhile pursuing the subject, since, if the US intelligence apparatus has any legitimacy at all, it’s one legitimate function is to haul in intelligence of this very sort. Surely knowing what’s on the mind of a leader we must deal with regularly is almost a prerequisite for a successful relationship, one that’s in the national interest to maintain. In this realpolitik sense, then, it is routine – or “traditional,” as Ackerman and Roberts put it – and arguably justifiable.

Surveillance Is for Peons ONLY!

The Secret Government: The Constitution in Crisis

By Bill Moyers
This is the full length 90 min. version of Bill Moyer’s 1987 scathing critique of the criminal subterfuge carried out by the Executive Branch of the United States Government.
Host Bill Moyers exposes the inner workings of the secret government. Though originally broadcast in 1987, it is even more relevant today. Interviews with respected, top military, intelligence, and government insiders reveal both the history and secret objectives. Where is Bill Moyers Now?
