Home Raided 1

By: Roger Landry (TLB)

How many stories have we seen, heard or read concerning police raids of the wrong home? And how many of these scenarios have gone horribly wrong, with property destroyed, pets killed, or innocent citizens (including children) harmed or killed. This happens often enough to make it a serious issue in the minds of those who push back against an ever encroaching police state. Warrant-less searches, ignored Constitutional rights and overwhelming and inappropriate military style force are now the norm We The People have been conditioned to accept as some sense of normal.

But what if the shoe was suddenly on the other foot?

Home Mistakenly raided. After receiving an anonymous tip from a (supposed) concerned citizen on social media, eleven armed and very determined men raided the location of a thought to be fugitive wanted for interstate armed robbery. The scenario unwinds for yet another massive raid on the wrong home. But this time it turned ugly quick, because this was the home of the Phoenix, Arizona Chief of Police!

PAZ Police Chief

According to local news outlets.Tuesday night August 4th, Phoenix police Chief Joseph Yahner and his wife were rudely awakened in the night at their home by eleven members of two bond recovery service companies searching for an interstate felon.

Obviously incensed by the rude and imposing infringement on his private property by a large armed contingent intent on capturing a wanted felon, Yahner allegedly notified them that the individual they were seeking was not, and had never been at his residence, and surely ordered the men to leave his property.

But if say police are the ones raiding the home in a full blown show of paramilitary force, it would be safe to assume that they wouldn’t be even slightly hindered by someone telling them to “get off of my property� and would proceed with their task using all means, up to and including, deadly force if they felt it required.

Get the task done and we will sort out the details later.

I would not wish to be the Bond companies at the other end of a Police Chiefs anger. But imagine the swiftness of justice he must have extracted!

If this were a police scenario (instead of bondsmen), as an average citizen (not rich or well connected) you may have to wait months or even years for your day in court, to see justice for the mistakes of an ever increasing overreaching police mentality … YOU Can’t Expedite Justice … But a Reining Police Chief of one of the largest cites in America CAN!

Phoenix police immediately arrested the owner of North Star Fugitive Recovery, and he was charged with criminal trespass and disorderly conduct. It must be nice to be connected …

My question here is …

Will Phoenix now have a Police Chief with a new appreciation for the plight of citizens who suffer this type of scenario, gained by his personal experience.

One can only hope so because in the cases of increasing number of mistaken police raids,  these are supposed to be peace keepers and are a part of their community, paid by the citizens it is their duty to protect. They are not an extended tool of an over reaching federal government … and as we have all witnessed … this seems to be long forgotten.

Please watch the attached video and truly comprehend that …

Phoenix Arizona has one PISSED OFF Police Chief !

Preface by: TLB

As we move further into 2015 we see America facing multiple game changing scenarios. Global war, Rampant disease, Martial law, Economic collapse, Social breakdown and the eminent collapse of our biosphere. Never before in the history of this country have We The People faced a more uncertain future fraught with so much danger and uncertainty.

Looking back over time always facilitates nostalgic thoughts of the past … what have we experienced or suffered, what do we see in our reflection. So lets look back and understand how we got to where we are today and what has transpired to put us and this once great country in the position we now find ourselves today.

Please understand we at The Liberty Beacon project are not fatalists, but you cannot progress to workable solutions, unless or until, you understand the events that transpired to facilitate the present circumstances.

What you are exposed to in this full length documentary is ground shattering … is it worth the over two hours required to watch it …

You decide …

The article that follows was originally written about two years ago, but has been seriously updated to reflect some of the most pertinent events that have transpired recently, some of the historical changes to our ability to live a free and prosperous life in today’s America. This article does not by any means contain a complete list of the changes that have been perpetrated upon us … but what it does contain is of a significance beyond merely important.

The Truth Of Tyranny: What We Have Already Lost

By: Roger Landry (TLB)

Updated and republished on August 2, 2015

What follows is a statement of present day reality, NOT what could be! So please read, and I invite one and all to challenge any part of this article they feel is falsely stated!

Since the turn of the century, and especially in the last six plus years, aided by Congress, there has been an accelerated paradigm shift in America away from a Republic to a soft dictatorship with more power being consolidated into the hands of a single individual than any American patriot would have ever believed! This has all been accomplished in the name of global oligarchs who now control or outright own our leaders. This is not a guess but a fact!

Where was the massive outcry from We The People that should have followed a study released by Princeton University clearly showing that we as Americans no longer live in a Republic governed by Democratic process … but instead exist in a country Ruled by Oligarchs: Princeton Makes It Official: USA Has Become Oligarchy, No Democracy? This clearly indicates We The People are no longer captains of this ship called America, but instead our elected officials (who they select) and by default us, serve at their whim, command, and to only their benefit.

This fact alone does more to explain the massive changes in America than anything else possibly could. What you also need to understand is that this is not a recent development but a program several centuries in progress … just now accelerated by these corporatists to take advantage of the global and national conditions that prevail, all facilitated by their hands.

So what have we already lost beyond the very Republic our forefathers bequeathed to us?

This is a partial list of unalienable rights and freedoms we can now, by law or by executive order, be denied in the land of the (used to be) free, and the circumstances that prevail for the powers that be to enforce this tyranny! It is not an all-inclusive list, but enough to scare the holy crap out of any patriot …

We have lost our rights via the Fourth Amendment to the United States Constitution. This is the part of the Bill of Rights that prohibits unreasonable searches and seizures and requires any warrant to be judicially sanctioned and supported by probable cause. But in a blow to the constitutional rights of citizens, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 8-1 (in Heien v. State of North Carolina) that police officers are permitted to violate our Fourth Amendment rights if the violation results from a “reasonableâ€? mistake about the law on the part of law enforcement. Acting contrary to the venerable principle that “ignorance of the law is no excuse,â€? the Court ruled that evidence obtained by police during a traffic stop that was not “legally justified” can be used to prosecute the person if police were reasonably mistaken that the person had violated the law.

So to put this in a clear perspective, YOU and I are required to know and follow the law … Ignorance of the law is NOT an excuse in the eyes of the police or the courts. BUT the very people whose job it is to uphold the law are not required to know and understand the law. What the Supreme Court has in fact done is give law enforcement the ability to circumvent the law under the smokescreen of ignorance, but good intent (Yea this will never be abused (satire)). Welcome to the American Police state

You now have lost your right to assembly or protest through HR 347, giving government the ability to arrest and bring felony charges against anyone engaged in political protests outside their allowed or permitted definition of protest! Passed by Congress!

What we now see on college campuses and protest rallies such as the Bundy ranch, is exclusion zones where free speech is not permitted via local or federal government intervention. This unalienable right must now be practiced as a (government) granted privilege in designated “Free Speech Zones” … REALLY ??? How can something be called Free Speech if the government defines when and where THEY will permit it? But if you violate their restrictions again you can suffer arrest and felony charges.

The exclusion zones (where exercising free speech is NOT permitted) imposed by Section 1752 of this law have no set boundaries. They can be as expansive as local or federal government deem necessary. The “Free Speech Zoneâ€? will always be an area designated outside the focal point of the desired protest … and isolated from appropriate press coverage and broadcast media. So by losing your right to protest, haven’t you also lost (or fatally damaged) your right to free speech through HR 347,  Passed by Congress!

The president no longer requires the Senate to approve all his Czars, and can appoint any crony or political ally to certain high-ranking government positions now with impunity from congressional checks and balances with the passage of S 679. This will allow him to consolidate powers never before even considered, due to the relationships he may have with these appointed individuals or their organizations! Passed By congress!

You no longer have the right to due process in any way, shape, or form if our president or his appointed government officials declare you an enemy of the state through the NDAA bill (section 1032/1021). Now this in itself is not so new … But the NDAA bill for 2013 military spending included a clause to protect the rights of American citizens for due process … this (under pressure from the president/White House) was subsequently stripped from the bill leaving the tyranny of the bill intact, WHY ??? There remains no requirement for the burden of proof, as you have no due process and can be locked away indefinitely, without the prospects of a trial. Passed by congress!

You can now be targeted for assassination, as an American via Executive Order 12333, by the president or his appointed representatives if for any reason you are deemed an enemy of the state, and there again is no burden of proof, no oversight and no requirement for due process! My God doesn’t this sound like the political machinations of a Dictatorial Banana Republic? Passed by presidential executive order (but of course)!

This president has made law his power to declare a national emergency, (defined by him) or martial law in an emergency, (also defined by him) with the ability to completely subjugate We The People via Executive order 13603, National Defense Resources Preparedness , This tyrannical order calls for civilian conscription under the Department of the Labor … without compensation! Can you say “Labor Camps”, or “Total Subjugation”!

Also consider under this supposed national emergency, that this EO gives this president TOTAL and absolute control over all food, food production and storage in American … So if you wish to eat, or feed your family, you had better tow the line !!!

His EO states said government would exercise TOTAL CONTROL over the following:

e)  “Food resources� means all commodities and products, (simple, mixed, or compound), or complements to such commodities or products, that are capable of being ingested by either human beings or animals, irrespective of other uses to which such commodities or products may be put, at all stages of processing from the raw commodity to the products thereof in vendible form for human or animal consumption.  “Food resources� also means potable water packaged in commercially marketable containers, all starches, sugars, vegetable and animal or marine fats and oils, seed, cotton, hemp, and flax fiber, but does not mean any such material after it loses its identity as an agricultural commodity or agricultural product.

(f)  “Food resource facilities� means plants, machinery, vehicles (including on farm), and other facilities required for the production, processing, distribution, and storage (including cold storage) of food resources, and for the domestic distribution of farm equipment and fertilizer…�

Also consider that that Section 201(b) of  EO 13603 clearly states that it is enforceable under both “emergency â€? and “NON-emergency conditions” … REALLY ??? … WHY ???

This president has signed a plethora of executive orders since he entered office, with some having immense power centralizing implications, but no clear definition of boundaries he may not exceed! Here is a partial list that shows the immense authority he would control over this country at his whim (pay particular attention to EO#11000)…

  • EO#10990 allows the government to take over all modes of transportation and control of highways and seaports.
  • EO#10995 allows the government to seize and control the communication media.
  • EO#10997 allows the government to take over all electrical power, gas, petroleum, fuels and minerals.
  • EO#10998 allows the government to take over all food resources and farms.
  • EO#11000 allows the government to mobilize civilians into work brigades under government supervision.
  • EO#11001 allows the government to take over all health, education and welfare functions.
  • EO#11002 designates the Postmaster General to operate a national registration
  • EO#11003 allows the government to take over all airports and aircraft, including commercial aircraft.
  • EO#11004 allows the Housing and Finance Authority to relocate communities, build new housing with public funds, designate areas to be abandoned, and establish new locations for populations.
  • EO#11005 allows the government to take over railroads, inland waterways and public storage facilities.

Add to the above list the constant and fervent attack on our second amendment rights, a right our founders felt critical for We The People to keep an otherwise tyrannical government in check. A right that must be defeated and rendered obsolete in order to allow the progression of tyranny to come to fruition in America. Why, because we as a society own hundreds of millions of guns … more than just about any standing army on this planet, and this poses a serious threat to the fundamental change promised to America, change that does NOT bode well for Americans.

Now consider that this government has bought, paid for and staffed over 600 internment centers, built under contract by Halliburton industries, strategically placed around the country, and capable of holding millions of patriots for forced reeducation and relocation purposes, without due process and for an indefinite period of time as detailed in DOD report FM 3-39.40 (please research this, it is very real).

Your right to reasonable privacy is gone as, through the patriot act and other legislation we are not privileged to, government agencies may spy on you and collect your personal data with legal impunity. Whether it be through social media, phone conversations, internet searches, street lights, appliances in your home, your automobile, or high flying drones etc… Even if you wish to be, you will never be truly alone again!

The government has been, and continues to actively hire tens of thousands of goons, thugs and self proclaimed mercenaries, to man an internal army called by their soft names, the TSA and Homeland Security. These troops are being armed as well as the best combat troops we send abroad to fight our illegal, imperialistic wars, including battle-proven automatic weapons, 2.2 BILLION rounds of ammunition (enough to fight a ten year war of the scope we are involved in across the middle east) including a massive number of .40 caliber hollow point rounds (only meant to kill and outlawed by the Geneva convention even for use in times of war), body armor, armored vehicles, aerial surveillance (drones) etc…!

These internal forces are currently being stationed across the country at strategic locations such as airports, train and bus stations, shopping malls, checkpoints on major highways and even sports events. So, basically, in any place there is significant gathering, or the flow of population!

Also Via the 1033 program (the Department of Defense Excess Property Program), hometown police departments are obtaining massive amounts military equipment, training and funds … all with strings back to the federal government (nothing the feds give you is ultimately free). So what we in fact are ending up with is the federalization of local police forces available to the feds to accomplish what they themselves cant or don’t have the resources to.

The Military is in the process of training as many as 40,000 returning soldiers in crowd control and riot termination to be used to augment the internal forces mentioned above, even though this is in direct violation of Posse Comitatus and the Constitution, which clearly states the standing army is to be used for foreign conflicts and not against the American people!

Now this list, as long and comprehensive as it is, only shows the surface of the preparations being made to subjugate the American population … Question, COULD THESE LAWS AND EO’S EVEN EXIST IN AMERICA without tyrannical presidents and a complicit congress?

Seditious

Here is a list of things tyrannical governments throughout history have found cannot be tolerated in order to maintain and protect their hold on absolute power …

The right to Freedom of speech

The right to bear arms

The right to assemble (protest)

The right to due process

The right to reasonable privacy

The right to protection against unreasonable searches and seizures

The right to ownership of critical properties

The right of citizens to choose their leaders

No please go back over the above article and see just how many of the list above are covered … If this does not shock the hell out of you, then you are brain dead!

What is also clearly shown in this article is that this is not the result of one corrupt branch of our government. The Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches are all complicit in the erosion and circumventing of what are supposed to be unalienable rights and freedoms enjoyed by, and freely practiced by all Americans.

So please look at the above title again … Need I say more. Is the title of this article making more sense to you now?

Are you angry yet?

So in fact what all this is saying is that the governance by a democratic process, by We The People, in this Republic has been supplanted by almost total oligarchical or corporate power.

Or in plain English … America is now ruled by Fascism!

All of this is mind boggling, and most would truly believe this cannot happen in America! But America has no magical immunity against tyranny. Just like all republics before us, any government not held accountable by its true governors (the people) will eventually accumulate power unto themselves and tyranny WILL result!

This could never have happened if We The People had not grown so apathetic and detached from our true responsibility as the governors of this Republic! American today has the most ignorant and disconnected society from the political process that govern their country on this planet.

In America Today

Take a serious look at what has been presented here and understand that this is “What We Have Already Lost”! It is not by a large margin Everything, but it is enough to know that it is well past time to wake up and push back !!!

At present the line “Land of the Free and home of the Brave” is a cruel joke! It is obvious to anyone aware of the above that we are no longer free … and as far as being brave, well where is the massive push-back against this obvious tyranny, where are the masses of the Brave ???

The cost of Liberty

Please remember, as bleak as this seems, there is hope, because regardless of their power and preparation, the most powerful force in this country has always been, and still remains the 315 million Americans! Together we constitute an unstoppable force that cannot be silenced!

One voice may speak

By Activist Post

In August of 2013, Bob Tuskin reported on an Arlington, Texas SWAT raid of the Garden of Eden eco-village, a small private community dedicated to sustainability and conscious healing. The community operates an organic farm, as well as offers free food programs and support to individuals who have experienced trauma, addiction, and childhood abuse.

The SWAT raid on the morning of August 2, 2013 resulted in 8 adults being handcuffed at gunpoint, including the mother of a 22 month old and a two-week-old baby who was separated from her children during the raid.

According to a Garden of Eden press release, after hours of being held in handcuffs at gunpoint, a warrant was finally produced which alleged that the community was operating a drug trafficking operation, as well as being considered armed and dangerous.

Community members were subsequently detained inside their home and watched at gunpoint for an additional 8 hours while a significant amount of their property was removed and/or destroyed.

No drugs were ever found and no charges ever resulted from the warrant.

Nearly two years later, Garden of Eden has now initiated a lawsuit against the city of Arlington, Texas.

Their lawsuit cites a number of specific amends to be made by the City aimed at creating a more honorable standard for the whole country, including a budget reveal for this operation and a refund to taxpayers for wasted funds.

Garden of Eden founder, Quinn Eaker, pledges:

In dedication to being an inspired example of how money can benefit the world instead of destroying it, I will donate 100% of all money received from this suit to creating sustainable systems that can feed and house hundreds of people for the rest of their lives for free. We are willing to see this suit through to the very end, even if it takes ten years, all the way to the Supreme Court. We will have justice for the wrongs perpetrated against us by the very public servants who are sworn to protect “we the people” in exercising our Constitutional and God Given rights to life and liberty.

As Garden of Eden also notes, there has been speculation about the true reason for this raid. One is that the City and connected real estate investors desired to use Garden of Eden land along with adjacent land for profitable development, likely related to the City owned and operated Tierra Verde Golf Course, less than one mile from the eco-village.

Another theory is that certain officials were strongly opposed to Garden of Eden’s alternative lifestyle, and they wanted to send a message to the community and a warning to any others considering the same.

Now Garden of Eden is sending their own message to the Police State:  heavy-handed tactics do not intimidate true lovers of freedom; they only provide further motivation to work toward freedom’s preservation.

By John W. Whitehead

How can the life of such a man
Be in the palm of some fool’s hand?
To see him obviously framed
Couldn’t help but make me feel ashamed to live in a land
Where justice is a game.—Bob Dylan, “Hurricane�

Justice in America is not all it’s cracked up to be.

Just ask Jeffrey Deskovic, who spent 16 years in prison for a rape and murder he did not commit. Despite the fact that Deskovic’s DNA did not match what was found at the murder scene, he was singled out by police as a suspect because he wept at the victim’s funeral (he was 16 years old at the time), then badgered over the course of two months into confessing his guilt. He was eventually paid $6.5 million in reparation.

James Bain spent 35 years in prison for the kidnapping and rape of a 9-year-old boy, but he too was innocent of the crime. Despite the fact that the prosecutor’s case was flimsy—it hinged on the similarity of Bain’s first name to the rapist’s, Bain’s ownership of a red motorcycle, and a misidentification of Bain in a lineup by a hysterical 9-year-old boy—Bain was sentenced to life in prison. He was finally freed after DNA testing proved his innocence, and was paid $1.7 million.

Mark Weiner got off relatively easy when you compare his experience to the thousands of individuals who are spending lifetimes behind bars for crimes they did not commit.

Weiner was wrongfully arrested, convicted, and jailed for more than two years for a crime he too did not commit. In his case, a young woman claimed Weiner had abducted her, knocked her out and then sent taunting text messages to her boyfriend about his plans to rape her. Despite the fact that cell phone signals, eyewitness accounts and expert testimony indicated the young woman had fabricated the entire incident, the prosecutor and judge repeatedly rejected any evidence contradicting the woman’s far-fetched account, sentencing Weiner to eight more years in jail. Weiner was only released after his accuser was caught selling cocaine to undercover cops.

In the meantime, Weiner lost his job, his home, and his savings, and time with his wife and young son. As Slate reporter journalist Dahlia Lithwick warned, “If anyone suggests that the fact that Mark Weiner was released this week means ‘the system works,’ I fear that I will have to punch him in the neck. Because at every single turn, the system that should have worked to consider proof of Weiner’s innocence failed him.�

The system that should have worked didn’t, because the system is broken, almost beyond repair.

In courtroom thrillers like 12 Angry Men and To Kill a Mockingbird, justice is served in the end because someone—whether it’s Juror #8 or Atticus Finch—chooses to stand on principle and challenge wrongdoing, and truth wins.

Unfortunately, in the real world, justice is harder to come by, fairness is almost unheard of, and truth rarely wins.

On paper, you may be innocent until proven guilty, but in actuality, you’ve already been tried, found guilty and convicted by police officers, prosecutors and judges long before you ever appear in a courtroom.

Chronic injustice has turned the American dream into a nightmare.

At every step along the way, whether it’s encounters with the police, dealings with prosecutors, hearings in court before judges and juries, or jail terms in one of the nation’s many prisons, the system is riddled with corruption, abuse and an appalling disregard for the rights of the citizenry.

Due process rights afforded to a person accused of a crime—the right to remain silent, the right to be informed of the charges against you, the right to representation by counsel, the right to a fair trial, the right to a speedy trial, the right to prove your innocence with witnesses and evidence, the right to a reasonable bail, the right to not languish in jail before being tried, the right to confront your accusers, etc.—mean nothing when the government is allowed to sidestep those safeguards against abuse whenever convenient.

It’s telling that while President Obama said all the right things about the broken state of our criminal justice system—that we jail too many Americans for nonviolent crimes (we make up 5 percent of the world’s population, but our prison population constitutes nearly 25% of the world’s prisoners), that we spend more money on incarceration than any other nation ($80 billion a year), that we sentence people for longer jail terms than their crimes merit, that our criminal justice system is far from color-blind, that the nation’s school-to-prison pipeline is contributing to overcrowded jails, and that we need to focus on rehabilitation of criminals rather than retribution—he failed to own up to the government’s major role in contributing to this injustice in America.

Indeed, while Obama placed the responsibility for reform squarely in the hands of prosecutors, judges and police, he failed to acknowledge that they bear the burden of our failed justice system, along with the legislatures and corporations who have worked with them to create an environment that is hostile to the rights of the accused.

In such a climate, we are all the accused, the guilty and the suspect.

As I document in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, we’re operating in a new paradigm where the citizenry are presumed guilty and treated as suspects, our movements tracked, our communications monitored, our property seized and searched, our bodily integrity disregarded, and our inalienable rights to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness� rendered insignificant when measured against the government’s priorities.

Every American is now in jeopardy of being targeted and punished for a crime he did not commit thanks to an overabundance of arcane laws. Making matters worse, by allowing government agents to operate above the law, immune from wrongdoing, we have created a situation in which the law is one-sided and top-down, used as a hammer to oppress the populace, while useless in protecting us against government abuse.

Add to the mix a profit-driven system of incarceration in which state and federal governments agree to keep the jails full in exchange for having private corporations run the prisons, and you will find the only word to describe such a state of abject corruption is “evil.�

How else do you explain a system that allows police officers to shoot first and ask questions later, without any real consequences for their misdeeds? Despite the initial outcry over the shootings of unarmed individuals in Ferguson and Baltimore, the pace of police shootings has yet to slow. In fact, close to 400 people were shot and killed by police nationwide in the first half of 2015, almost two shootings a day. Those are just the shootings that were tracked. Of those killed, almost 1 in 6 were either unarmed or carried a toy gun.

For those who survive an encounter with the police only to end up on the inside of a jail cell, waiting for a “fair and speedy trial,� it’s often a long wait. Consider that 60 percent of the people in the nation’s jails have yet to be convicted of a crime. There are 2.3 million people in jails or prisons in America. Those who can’t afford bail, “some of them innocent, most of them nonviolent and a vast majority of them impoverished,� will spend about four months in jail before they even get a trial.

Not even that promised “day in court� is a guarantee that justice will be served.

As Judge Alex Kozinski of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals points out, there are an endless number of factors that can render an innocent man or woman a criminal and caged for life: unreliable eyewitnesses, fallible forensic evidence, flawed memories, coerced confessions, harsh interrogation tactics, uninformed jurors, prosecutorial misconduct, falsified evidence, and overly harsh sentences, to name just a few.

In early 2015, the Justice Department and FBI “formally acknowledged that nearly every examiner in an elite FBI forensic unit gave flawed testimony in almost all trials in which they offered evidence against criminal defendants over more than a two-decade period…. The admissions mark a watershed in one of the country’s largest forensic scandals, highlighting the failure of the nation’s courts for decades to keep bogus scientific information from juries, legal analysts said.�

“How do rogue forensic scientists and other bad cops thrive in our criminal justice system?� asks Judge Kozinski. “The simple answer is that some prosecutors turn a blind eye to such misconduct because they’re more interested in gaining a conviction than achieving a just result.�

The power of prosecutors is not to be underestimated.

Increasingly, when we talk about innocent people being jailed for crimes they did not commit, the prosecutor plays a critical role in bringing about that injustice. As The Washington Post reports, “Prosecutors win 95 percent of their cases, 90 percent of them without ever having to go to trial…. Are American prosecutors that much better? No… it is because of the plea bargain, a system of bullying and intimidation by government lawyers for which they ‘would be disbarred in most other serious countries….’�

This phenomenon of innocent people pleading guilty makes a mockery of everything the criminal justice system is supposed to stand for: fairness, equality and justice. As Judge Jed S. Rakoff concludes, “our criminal justice system is almost exclusively a system of plea bargaining, negotiated behind closed doors and with no judicial oversight. The outcome is very largely determined by the prosecutor alone.�

It’s estimated that between 2 and 8 percent of convicted felons who have agreed to a prosecutor’s plea bargain (remember, there are 2.3 million prisoners in America) are in prison for crimes they did not commit.

Clearly, the Coalition for Public Safety was right when it concluded, “You don’t need to be a criminal to have your life destroyed by the U.S. criminal justice system.�

It wasn’t always this way. As Judge Rakoff recounts, the Founding Fathers envisioned a criminal justice system in which the critical element “was the jury trial, which served not only as a truth-seeking mechanism and a means of achieving fairness, but also as a shield against tyranny.�

That shield against tyranny has long since been shattered, leaving Americans vulnerable to the cruelties, vanities, errors, ambitions and greed of the government and its partners in crime.

There is not enough money in the world to make reparation to those whose lives have been disrupted by wrongful convictions.

Over the past quarter century, more than 1500 Americans have been released from prison after being cleared of crimes they did not commit. These are the fortunate ones. For every exonerated convict who is able to prove his innocence after 10, 20 or 30 years behind bars, Judge Kozinski estimates there may be dozens who are innocent but cannot prove it, lacking access to lawyers, evidence, money and avenues of appeal.

For those who have yet to fully experience the injustice of the American system of justice, it’s only a matter of time.

America no longer operates under a system of justice characterized by due process, an assumption of innocence, probable cause, and clear prohibitions on government overreach and police abuse. Instead, our courts of justice have been transformed into courts of order, advocating for the government’s interests, rather than championing the rights of the citizenry, as enshrined in the Constitution.

Without courts willing to uphold the Constitution’s provisions when government officials disregard them, and a citizenry knowledgeable enough to be outraged when those provisions are undermined, the Constitution provides little protection against the police state.

In other words, in this age of hollow justice, courts of order, and government-sanctioned tyranny, the Constitution is no safeguard against government wrongdoing such as SWAT team raids, domestic surveillance, police shootings of unarmed citizens, indefinite detentions, asset forfeitures, prosecutorial misconduct and the like.

The plot to destroy America is decades old. When I have recently spoken of the removal of dissident journalists in programs such Boa and Operation Lightening Strike, and we witness the unfolding of the NDAA and EO 13603 in order to control the masses through food and enforce civilian conscription without compensation, we are merely witnessing the manifestation of a plot introduced generations ago during the Woodrow Wilson administration. All of these efforts are designed to mobilize an unwilling nation to fight World War III. Some are reacting to these revelations as if America has been caught off guard. The fact remains that Americans were not paying attention, and in large part, still are not aware of what is happening to their country.  Key Russian defectors have been warning us for decades that we were being infiltrated by communists.

George W. Bush

tsa goosing granny“America, the most free nation on earth? Terrorists hate us because of our freedom�?  Do you remember these words that were uttered by George W. Bush after 9/11?  Today, I can barely type these words without laughing hysterically. America has descended rapidly down the path of being a police state and we have been in political free fall since September 11, 2001. Do you also remember when Bush said, “You are either with us, or you are with the terrorists�? The latter statement is not so funny.

I am not going to lie to you America, our country and its values, its economy and the forces that control our country are not what the average American wanta to see. Liberty has taken a backseat to tyranny. However, I believe that freedom is often the result of the space between the prison bars that we create for ourselves on an individual level. Yet, there are five variables that a super globalist elite must control in order to subjugate a nation and its people. The five variables are the media, the rules governing economics, social standards, the political system and the military. This article briefly analyzes the control the super elite have over each of these five areas.

The Media

Six corporations control 98% of the media. These same six corporations virtually control everything that most people see, hear and subsequently believe. The CNN’s and FOX networks have successfully turned the majority of our people into sheep who are willing to accept any form of dictatorship so long as it is endorsed and glorified by the news media.

There is, however, a steadily growing group of Americans who have taken off their blinders and who are slowly but surely waking up to the growing tyranny which is dominating our country.

Amazingly, only two percent of the media broadcasts the message of freedom. The growth of the independent media movement is largely due to just two percent of the media which is not corporate owned by such entities as Gannett Broadcasting and Clear Channel Communications. The chances are that you are reading this article on one of the venues which are free to tell you the truth which subsequently states that every aspect of your society is controlled by the Rockefeller/Rothschild banking empire.

If the super elite controls 98% of the media outlets, they control the narrative. However, David is beginning to fight back against Goliath. The 98% majority is beginning to lose the battle with the two percent. Because of the threat to the establishment, don’t look for the alternative media to be around much longer.

Even if the mainstream media absorbs the alternative media, we are still free to interact with like-minded people, at least for the time being. The encroachment of NSA spying, now under the control of the DHS,  into our daily lives, which monitors our every communication, is very troublesome. Yet, even the absolute control over the mainstream media may not be cracking as much as we had hoped when we consider the fate of the following journalists:

The four journalists to die mysteriously within 24 hours are

Ned Colt w/NBC (Top Left) – Bob Simon w/CBS (Bottom Left) died in a car crash – David Carr w/NY Times (Bottom Right) died just hours after interviewing NSA Russian defector, Ed Snowden – Bob Hager w/NBC (Top Right). Photo courtesy of: J. Schuyler Montague. All but Hager are dead as Hager survived a head on collision in his neighborhood. Add to these events, the matter grows more complicated when Brian Williams was deposed in the same time frame. Unless one is an ardent coincidence theorist, one has to consider the unlikely odds that these events are due to chance and ask, what did these reporters know that someone did not want released?  These factors all occurred within 24 hours of each other as the coincidence odds continue to escalate. The photo was obtained here.

Social Factors

The second factor leading to control over a society is the control over important social factors. The majority of Americans still believe in hard work, their religion and traditional family values which honors the sanctity of marriage as defined in the Bible. Through the control of the media and an increasing control of the government, Americans are being forced into glorifying every form of behavior, previously considered to be perverse and the traditional values of the American family are under attack by the media, Child Protective Services and the education system.

christians burning crossBecause I am a white, Christian, heterosexual male who is the leader of my family and I teach Christian values to my son, I am attacked as an intolerant bigot, where only a few years ago, I was considered to be a social liberal by those who knew me because I have never supported the persecution of people making lifestyle choices that I know are wrong according to my beliefs. As a result, my most sacred beliefs are subject to criticism. We now live in a society that is being ruled by the extreme minority and we are being forced to comply with the intolerant dictates of the social elite.  And I, who never advocated for discrimination against anyone, am experiencing discrimination from those who used to beg for acceptance and equality. Welcome to a fundamentally transformed America.  At this rate, the new America will drive all Christians into the closet formerly occupied by those with alternative lifestyles such as Bruce Jenner, and various religions.

I truly believe that the renewal of the persecution of the Christians is just around the corner. In fact when it comes to the government’s disaster preparedness programming, one could argue that Jesus and the Bible have already been legislated out of any DHS or FEMA program, just ask Pastor Walt Mansfield. According to Pastor Mansfield, “Jesus� will never be uttered inside of a FEMA camp.

I would remind everyone, that at the end of the day, nobody can control how we raise our children. Nobody can ever control the values that a family holds dear, while respecting each person to make their own choices. This freedom is due to the fact that nobody controls what you think, at least not yet and that could change as well.

Economics

dollar decline imageThe third factor which must be controlled before a nation can be subjugated is through the control of the economic system. From the period of 1800-1913, a dollar was still worth a dollar. After the inception of the Federal Reserve, the relative wealth of the dollar has been eroded by 97%. What a dollar could buy 100 years ago, can buy three cents worth today.

One unelected entity controls the nation’s banks, The Federal Reserve. The same people control all governmental legislation for all economic policies including the Stock Market. When the super elite get caught with their proverbial hand in the cookie jar and suffer major economic losses, they simply steal from the people and call it a bail-out. As a result, we have had the bail-out, the son of bail-out and the grandson of the bail-outs.

This same super elite outlaws all competing forms of economic exchange except for the very one that they control, the soon-to-be fiat currency called the dollar.  Those who go against the system can meet an untimely end,  just ask friends of JFK with regard to his C-notes. Also, consider the case of Autumn Radtke, the 28 year old, who ran the First Meta bitcoin exchange, who was found suicided in her Singapore apartment last year. Originally, police investigated the “unnatural death� as a homicide.

Yes, the dollar will soon be a fiat currency as Russia, China and India are purchasing Iranian oil in gold and bypassing the dollar as the only medium of exchange (i.e. the Petrodollar). This will lead to war that will be started by a false flag provocation and the Syrians and the Iranians will be blamed. The war will follow the imposition of martial law at home following a series of domestic false flag attacks designed to eliminate all citizen opposition to the coming conflict.

Americans do still have the power to collapse the globalist system of economics by refusing to participate in the system. I have repeatedly called for not shopping at multinational chain stores such as Walmart, which now employs a new security force, Securitas (i.e. the SS) who harasses nonthreatening shoppers. We could grow our own food, shop locally and trade and barter and there would not be a darn thing the super elite could do about it. Most Americans, because of the corporate controlled media are unaware of their options in this area. One caveat, if we ever let the FDA get control over all food as they are trying to presently accomplish, it will be game over. If this ever happens you will be living in the Ukraine, under Stalin, as he starved to death millions of Ukrainians who wanted freedom. I covered this eventuality in a recent article.

The Military

If the super elite have made serious miscalculations on the path towards establishing a New World Order, the handling of the American military is a prime example. Why do you think it was previously announced that America’s military was being downsized to a pre-World War II level at a time when World War III is a real possibility? This is, no doubt, because the military cannot be trusted to do the bidding of the super elite and “take care� of uncooperative American citizens.

For decades, our brave men and women in uniform have been used to fight banker wars of occupation. The exploitation of the service people is growing daily. An average of 22 veterans are committing suicide on a daily basis. The government is trying to disarm the veterans in anticipation of what is coming. Obama is trying to unseat the command structure of the military through the firing of over 260 senior command military officers. Obama is trying to gain total and absolute control over the nuclear arsenal, but has been unable to do so, to date. Obama will never get total control over the military because they know what he stands for. A detailed synopsis of  Obama’s attack upon American military leadership can be found here and here.

At the end of the day, I remain hopeful that our military will prove to be the shining beacon of freedom against the total imposition of tyranny on our soil spearheaded by foreign United Nations mercenaries. However, without the popular support of the people, any military insurgency is doomed to fail. If we fail to wakeup more American people, the military will prove to be an asset as worthless as the dollar will soon be. All mediums of value must have backing and the military is no different.

The Government

The NDAA, Executive Order 13603, the Patriot Act, NSA spying, the use of the election fixing electronic voting machines, force feeding us GMO’s, the completely controlled Democrats and Republicans by the forces of the Rockefeller/Rothschild banking cartel as well as the revealed existence of the new martial law Internment/Resettlement policies are all shining examples of the absolute police state that is being imposed in this country against the will of the people.

Obamacare is destroying small business in this country. It has turned religious liberty on its ear, just ask Hobby Lobby or the Catholic church. Coverage rates for Obamacare have exploded. The Wall Street criminality which led to the bail-outs was caused by a series of illegal Ponzi schemes. Nobody went to jail. And what do we do when a rogue bank, HSBC, is a proven criminal enterprise and nobody goes to jail? How about when the IRS is allowed to harass political enemies? Or a senior diplomatic official is killed less than two months prior to the 2012 election in order to conceal gun running to terrorists. And this is only the tip of the iceberg and NOBODY ever goes to jail! We have lost control of our government.

Conclusion

The revelation that America will have martial law used against them to force compliance in the coming world war is not new. These plots were merely the manifestations of this plot to bring down America.  The communist subversion designed to erode America on five different fronts is not new, it is just coming to fruition.

stack-and-pack-apt

By TLB Contributor: Dave Hodges.

As a result of my contact with confidential sources, in relation to the present illegal immigration crisis and the presence of MS-13, who double as assassins for the Sinaloa and Los Zeta cartels, I have received inside information on how the globalists will ultimately for Americans to abandon their homes and seek safe refuge within the planned urban refugee centers which will be springing up under policies devised by Obama’s people.

The Easy Way and the Hard Way

Anyone who studies Agenda 21 policies does not need a primer on the fact that the globalists ultimately plan to herd six million Americans into 11 mega-cities and we will all live in micro apartments, give up our cars, adopt public transportation, have our every move monitored and forever be the property of the state. And there are two ways that the globalists are going to get us to accept our ultimate fate. There will be the easy way, which will consist of following the money incentives designed to force Agenda 21 policy compliance upon us. There will be a second method used just in case more passive methods of forcing rural/suburban to dense urban relocation are not successful. These methods involve violence and intimidation.

By the way, did your brain just catch the math error? Eleven megacities, with six million people each, equals 66 million total Americans. America presently has a population of approximately 315 million people. Where did the 249 million Americans go?

The Hard Way

As a result of my investigation into the role and extent that the SANCHEZ-Paredes cartel and the Peruvian military control the arms and drugs shipments to the Sinaloa cartel and ultimately the Los Zeta’s and MS-13, I learned how Peru has accomplished much of its population shift away from being a rural nation only 25 years ago to becoming a nation of mostly urban dwellers in 2015.

The capital city of Lima, Peru, has grown from 2 million residents to 8 million residents in less that one generation. There were two primary means employed in Peru in which to force a massive relocation of the Peruvian people from their historic rural homes and farms to the dense inner city, micro apartments of Lima.

According to the United Nations research and scientific studies, nearly two-thirds of the entire population inhabiting the planet will face severe, life-threatening water shortages by the year 2025. The reasons most often cited for the water shortages are waste and poor planning which will result in uneven distribution. Peru has been one of these effected countries where water has been privatized and directed away from areas that the Peruvian, Agenda 21 based leadership wants people to avoid living. If you want to drink water and you live in Peru, you will move where they send you. In Peru, water and finance are intertwined in order to force relocation of rural populations to urban centers. 

state of jefferson bannerTo some extent, this water management scheme designed to get people off of there rural land is in use in Southern Oregon and Northern California. The problem of obtaining water access for the residents in these rural areas has become so bad, due to EPA and BLM communist based land management policies, that many of the residents are giving up and relocating to the cities in search of a job. Many of the residents are exploring the feasibility of an idea which would lead people to form a 51st state, known as the State of Jefferson.

shining pathThere is a second method being used to force people from rural areas in Peru to the stack and pack city of Lima and that is through abject violence. The Shining Path, or more commonly known as SENDERO LUMINSO has been murdering Peruvian rural residents. Their favorite tactic is to behead groups of people, throw their decapitated bodies into a stream and when they wash up downstream, they serve as a stern warning that it is not safe to live in a rural environment. The SENDERO LUMINSO uses this method to keep their cocaine fields free for the SANCHEZ-Paredes cartel in order to have use of the land to harvest cocaine. Secondly, the Peruvian government and the Agenda 21 policies receive a boost because the more independent rural population moves to the cities where they are easier to control and this lessens the threat of a popular uprising.

immigrant-ms-13

Coming to your neighborhood armed with IED’s, anti-tank weapons, automatic weapons and WMD’s

This kind of violence, in order to force Agenda 21 compliance, was previously unthinkable in the United States, until the recent immigration crisis reared its ugly head. While the MSM focuses on children who are refugees, we should be focusing on what the Border Patrol is quietly telling us; we are being invaded by MS-13, Los Zetas and the Sinaloa cartel. They are well armed, supplied with anti-tank weapons, RPG’s and automatic weapons. They have already fired upon the American Border Patrol. They are brazen and are more powerful than any local police force. I have come to learn that this paramilitary group will become a Fifth Column and violently carry out the edicts of their sponsors. This means that the rural residents that the BLM and the EPA cannot move from their land, will be forcibly removed. We are looking at the American version of the SENDERO LUMINSO entering our country. Soon our rural sheriffs will be claiming that they out-manned and out-gunned. These activities appear to the be the failsafe policies of the globalists with regard to creating an urban center concentration.

For now, Americans are being nudged into Agenda 21 by what I call the easy way. Financial incentives are being created to “encourage� relocation from rural/suburban to urban living.

The Easy Way

Obama’s plans for his second-term plans includes an initiative to systematically redistribute the wealth of America’s suburbs and rural areas to the inner cities. It’s a transformative communist idea  and it is one that is already underway as these words are being written.

The real brains behind the coming Agenda 21-inspired mass migration from the suburbs to the inner cities is Mike Krulig and his new group of community advisors, Building One America. Their secretive agenda has been mostly achieved by Obama’s appointment of like-minded community activists to his staff. In fact, Krulig was one of Obama’s original community organizing mentors from the President’s Chicago Southside days. The word stealth applies because a damning photo depicting Krulig and Obama meeting at the Whitehouse in 2011 which appeared on the Building One America website. (The photo is displayed above).  However, this type of publicity would not have been good for the swing voters living in America’s suburbs. Obama’s people had the video scrubbed as well as the search engine links. However, the Breitbart people retained a copy of the picture. This begs the question, if the Building One America plan is so good for America, why would the Obama people conceal his affiliation with Krulig and his group of Agenda 21 social engineers?

Kruglik’s Agenda 21 friendly group, Building One America, proposes the creation of a  regional tax-base sharing revenues in which suburban tax money is directly redistributed to nearby cities and economically depressed concentric zones of inner-ring suburbs. Building One America also seeks to move the poor out of cities by imposing mandatory low-income-housing quotas for middle-class suburban developments.

Krulig’s group also seeks to export the controversial regional tax-base sharing scheme currently in place in the Minneapolis–St. Paul area to the rest of the country. Under this program, a portion of suburban tax money flows into a common regional pot, which is then effectively redistributed to urban, and a few less well-off “inner-ring� suburban, municipalities. The Minneapolis-St. Paul area regional government is run by unelected and unaccountable bureaucrats who are out of control. It is critical to know that removing the election process from this endeavor was deliberate for reasons that will become obvious as the reader will discover.

Kruglik’s group also favors a variety of policies designed to force people out of their cars and force suburbanites, robbed of their own tax money, to relocate into densely populated stack and  pack cities. Among Kruglick’s strategies to separate people from their cars is the Vehicle Mileage Tax (VMT). Road pricing for the VMT would be implemented to force drivers out their cars. This will impact all drivers except for the Obama inspired exemption of low income drivers.

The VMT is designed to give favored status to certain groups. These groups represent organizations that want to transfer wealth through the heavy hand of regional government interfering in the housing, transportation and land use market place.

This tyranny is also being beta tested in the Bay area in a project entitled One Bay Area Plan. One Bay Area Plan is a 25 year plan which combines housing, transportation, and Agenda 21 land use policies. The public cover story is that the project is designed to save the planet by reducing Green House Gasses. The generated revenue, estimated at $15 million/day, would be used to fund further Agenda 21 transportation schemes such as buses, trollies and light rail which only a few people presently ride.

This plan also calls for Upzoning which would expland the plan to even more areas in the Bay. This would mean even more requirements for high density housing in cities that do not have their “fair share� of low income people. This will result in more 200 square foot apartments being constructed near public transit lines.

This Bay Area Agenda 21 plan also contains a concept referred to as tthe Communities of Concern (read low income and communities of color) would receive funds from these windfall profits that the region would receive.  (is Obama trying to provoke a race war?). Additionally, development fees would be eliminated for affordable housing developments, while subsidies would be used for favored activities such as the creation of more micro apartments and the construction of low income housing in the suburbs.

Most people mistakenly believe that the reality of the megacities concept in which we are all herded into the stack and pack cities is decades down the road. On the contrary, as you have seen, the program is being beta tested in two large metropolitan areas. These schemes will soon be coming to a neighborhood near you.

We are going to get Agenda 21 one way of the other. The question remains as to whether America is going to be transitioned into an Agenda 21 society by using less aggressive methods, or will we be doing things the hard way?

By TLB Contributor: Dave Hodges

My worst fears are being realized. The following information is strongly suggestive that the United Nations is poised to seize control of Jade Helm. Further, the nature of UN involvement with Jade Helm is strongly suggestive of the fact that massive numbers of people will be relocated to camps following a chemical/biological attack. Further, this administration has established the protocols for just such a forced relocation of massive amounts of people.

We have seen the Blue Bell Ice Cream trucks, featured later in this article, that are implicated in this scenario for the presumed transport of a massive amounts of dead bodies. However, what is most disturbing is that in the case of a pandemic, the United Nations will assume operational control over quarantines and the transporting of “sick people� to a receiving facility. Walk with me through this process and I am certain you will agree the dots are beginning to connect which points to a hellish scenario in America’s immediate future. Let’s connect some dots.

The United Nations Is On the Move

This scenraio begins to unfold when I received an email from an alert citizen.

Dave,

My husband and I were traveling from Louisiana to Dallas, TX.  Saturday. on Interstate 20 westbound.  We passed a convoy of military vehicles on the Interstate headed towards Dallas.  Also,  in an area in which traffic had come to almost a complete stop because of road construction, over to the south of I-20, my husband and I spotted 3 white helicopters hovering in a triangular formation over an open field for over 10 minutes.  Traffic was barely moving for a long time and the helicopters never moved, just hovered.  Also,  someone on Facebook traveling on I-20 in Louisiana today posted a video of UN ambulances being transported in which the UN logo had been taped over on all the vehicles but, on one door the covering had blown loose and you could clearly see the UN logo.  I am praying for the people of Texas and Louisiana to wake up to what is going on especially with these false flag events like prisoner escapee and house to house searches in Texas to gather data about what is in the homes more than likely.  Texas is under attack and now, ironically, the tropical storm system in the Gulf which was originally predicted to head our way in Louisiana at the gulf, has turned and is now going straight through the heart of Texas where they have already had major flooding going on.  Please pray for our nation!!

Ronelle Ford

Shreveport/Bossier Louisiana

Can we agree that the United States is intended to be a sovereign entity? Can we also agree that the United Nations has no business in meddling in the domestic affairs of this nation?

Exposed! UN Medical Trucks Caught Trying to Hide Logo from Public View

Along the lines of the Ronelle Ford email, we see the following video footage that was taken in Northern Louisiana on June 10, 2015. Please take note how there was an attempt to hide the UN logos on the UN medical trucks. The logos were covered with brown paper, but the front cover has peeled off and the UN logo is available for all to see. The fact that this is a domestic video is very ominous. Ask yourself, why are UN medical vehicles being spotted within the United States?  What kind of mass casualty event are they expecting and why is our government transfering their sovereign authority over to the Uninted Nations in this type of scenario? This combination of these variables opens a whole can of worms which contains very frightening implications.

UN Helicopters Over Washington State

The sightings of UN vehicles in Louisiana and Texas are not isolated events. Here we see what is most likely UN helicopters over Washington State. This is a frightening development because the UN is beginning to operate openly on American soil.

Preparing for Mass Casualties

Peter Sutherland an insider's insider. Head of the UN Migration Council. He will soon be your next landlord.

The UN’s International Migration and Development would be in charge of large scale population movements which would be related to a mass casualty event such as a pandemic. Previously, I have written extensively on who and what would be in charge of the mass migration of the American people and of course, the UN is in charge and the entire operation is under control of the globalist, Peter Sutherland, who masterminded the Gulf Oil Explosion event in 2010. Sutherland is the director of the UN’s International Migration and Development program.

In the event of a pandemic, the Secretary of Human Health Services (HHS) will assume operational control of Federal emergency public health and medical response. However, that authority gives way to the UN’s World Health Organization and the UN International Migration and Development.

In the event of a pandemic outbreak, the HHS will order the quarantining of any pandemic sufferers and the transport of the same to detainment camps, ostensibly to protect the public. The mass transport of pandemic victims to quarantine camps is referred to as “ambulance services�, and it is a euphemism for transporting sick people to a death camp.

“Ambulance� Contracts

I have found evidence supporting these claims in a federal document entitled  Emergency Support Function #8 (ESF #8) – Public Health and Medical Services Annex.  

This document can be accessed by Googling “ESF #8″ and you will arrive at the following listing and a PDF will appear:

[PDF]Emergency Support Function #8 – Public Health and Medical

www.fema.gov/…/emergency_s…

Federal Emergency Management Agency

Medical Services include responding to medical needs associated with mental health, ….. assistance are executed by ESF #8 in coordination with DHS/FEMA. … primarily for communications, aircraft, and the establishment of base camps.

ESF #8 established the national ambulance contract, which is designed to provide support for evacuating seriously ill or injured patients.

HHS will enlist the VA and Department of Defense assets (e.g. the military) in support of providing “transportation assets, operating and staffing NDMS Federal Coordination Centers, and processing and tracking patient movements from collection points to their final destination reception facilities� (emphasis added).

As I discovered, the final points of destination tied to the ambulance contracts, are devoid of any medical personnel. But there is no shortage of transport vehicles which will be carrying massive amount of dead bodies, presumably from a chemical and/or biological attack.

DAHBOO 777 was sent the following vehicle from a Colorado resident which involved a convoy of Blue Bell (refrigerated) ice cream trucks. The implications are very obvious.

Detainment Centers Have No Real Medical Facilities

QUARANTINE FACILITY

Look at the participating partners in the “hospital� detainment centers in the EFS #8 document.

Support Agencies:Department of AgricultureDepartment of CommerceDepartment of Defense

Department of Energy

Department of Homeland Security

Department of the Interior

Department of Justice

Department of Labor

Department of State

Department of Transportation

Department of Veterans Affairs

Environmental Protection Agency

General Services Administration

U.S. Agency for International Development

U.S. Postal Service

American Red Cross

No Healthcare Personnel at the FEMA “Medical� Detention Camps

In the above list of pandemic detainment centers, I don’t see the CDC or the National Institute of Health listed. Nor do I see any legitimate medical organizations. I don’t even see the presence of any “volunteer� medical organizations such as Doctors Without Borders. Does anyone else find it disturbing that the transport of very sick people will be conducted and the end point is devoid of any medical treatment organizations and/or facilities?

fema box carsThese camps are death camps. There is not one shred of evidence that these camps are intended to treat or even make comfortable people who will contract any type of pathogen or be exposed to something like Ebola. The most disturbing thing is that these camps will be death camps for relatively healthy people. If you are a person who is lucky enough to be discovered to have asthma or merely be temporarily suffering from congestion in one’s lungs from allergies or a simple cold, you could find yourself on one of the Federally approved ambulance services (bus, train, plane) and headed to your final destination.

The Legal Authority to Send “Patients� to FEMA Camps

Before one can “legally� transport a person, who would be potentially exposed to a pathogen,  to “death camps� and await the inevitable, the public must be reassured that the rule of law is being followed.

When something like Ebola strikes, the changes in the handling of Ebola patients have already been planned for through a series of legal actions, most of them are Executive Orders. For example, the Executive Order, entitled Revised List of Quarantinable Communicable Diseases, amends Executive Order 13295, passed by George W. Bush in April 2003, which allows for the, “apprehension, detention, or conditional release of individuals�, and Ebola is specifically mentioned. Obama’s executive order, entitled, Revised List of Quarantinable Communicable Diseases, amends Bush’s Executive Order 13295, which allows for the, “apprehension, detention, or conditional release of individuals  to prevent the introduction, transmission, or spread of suspected communicable diseases.� In short, anyone with the sniffles or traces of asthma can be rounded up and detained in this scenario.

More Disturbing Developments

I published this email a few days ago in a previous article. 

My husband is an Army Reservist in Michigan. He is home this weekend after training at Camp Grayling. He know that I am writing to you but please don’t use our names. His unit is training in the processing of Americans into detention camps.He was told by his CO that they would be processing American actors posing as American citizens. Part of their training was the removal and disposal of dead bodies. My husband said he will not participate when the time comes to do so. Please keep getting the word out Dave you are making a difference.

All of a sudden, this email takes on special meaning when we consider the following video produced by Pete Santilli. Go the 2:57 mark and be prepared to be horrified. This puts the closed Walmart stores and their retrofits under a whole new light.

Portable mortuary.

Conclusion

At one point, most of us were naive enough to believe that the precipitating incident which would make Jade Helm go live would merely be an economic collapse. The facts contained in this article demonstrate that it is very likely that the American people are going to be simultaneously attacked on multiple fronts.

By John W. Whitehead

“It is perfectly possible for a man to be out of prison and yet not free—to be under no physical constraint and yet be a psychological captive, compelled to think, feel and act as the representatives of the national state, or of some private interest within the nation wants him to think, feel and act. . . . To him the walls of his prison are invisible and he believes himself to be free.�—Aldous Huxley, A Brave New World Revisited

“Free worlders� is prison slang for those who are not incarcerated behind prison walls.  Supposedly, those fortunate souls live in the “free world.� However, appearances can be deceiving.

“As I got closer to retiring from the Federal Bureau of Prisons,� writes former prison employee Marlon Brock, “it began to dawn on me that the security practices we used in the prison system were being implemented outside those walls.� In fact, if Brock is right, then we “free worlders� do live in a prison—albeit, one without visible walls.

In federal prisons, cameras are everywhere in order to maintain “security� and keep track of the prisoners. Likewise, the “free world� is populated with video surveillance and tracking devices. From surveillance cameras in stores and street corners to license plate readers (with the ability to log some 1,800 license plates per hour) on police cars, our movements are being tracked virtually everywhere. With this increasing use of iris scanners and facial recognition software—which drones are equipped with—there would seem to be nowhere to hide.

Detection and confiscation of weapons (or whatever the warden deems “dangerous�) in prison is routine. The inmates must be disarmed. Pat downs, checkpoints, and random searches are second nature in ferreting out contraband.

Sound familiar?

Metal detectors are now in virtually all government buildings. There are the TSA scanning devices and metal detectors we all have to go through in airports. Police road blocks and checkpoints are used to perform warrantless searches for contraband. Those searched at road blocks can be searched for contraband regardless of their objections—just like in prison. And there are federal road blocks on American roads in the southwestern United States. Many of them are permanent and located up to 100 miles from the border.

Stop and frisk searches are taking place daily across the country. Some of them even involve anal and/or vaginal searches. In fact, the U.S. Supreme Court has approved strip searches even if you are arrested for a misdemeanor—such as a traffic stop. Just like a prison inmate.

Prison officials open, search and read every piece of mail sent to inmates. This is true of those who reside outside prison walls, as well. In fact, “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.� Believe it or not, each piece of physical mail received by the Postal Service is photographed and stored in a database. Approximately 160 billion pieces of mail sent out by average Americans are recorded each year and the police and other government agents have access to this information.

Prison officials also monitor outgoing phone calls made by inmates. This is similar to what the NSA, the telecommunication corporation, and various government agencies do continually to American citizens. The NSA also downloads our text messages, emails, Facebook posts, and so on while watching everything we do.

Then there are the crowd control tactics: helmets, face shields, batons, knee guards, tear gas, wedge formations, half steps, full steps, pinning tactics, armored vehicles, and assault weapons. Most of these phrases are associated with prison crowd control because they were perfected by prisons.

Finally, when a prison has its daily operations disturbed, often times it results in a lockdown. What we saw with the “free world� lockdowns following the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing and the melees in Ferguson, Missouri and Baltimore, Maryland, mirror a federal prison lockdown.

These are just some of the similarities between the worlds inhabited by locked-up inmates and those of us who roam about in the so-called “free world.�

Is there any real difference?

To those of us who see the prison that’s being erected around us, it’s a bit easier to realize what’s coming up ahead, and it’s not pretty. However, and this must be emphasized, what most Americans perceive as life in the United States of America is a far cry from reality. Real agendas and real power are always hidden.

As Author Frantz Fanon notes, “Sometimes people hold a core belief that is very strong. When they are presented with evidence that works against that belief, the new evidence cannot be accepted. It would create a feeling that is extremely uncomfortable, called cognitive dissonance. And because it is so important to protect the core belief, they will rationalize, ignore and even deny anything that doesn’t fit in with the core belief.�

This state of denial and rejection of reality is the essential plot of John Carpenter’s 1988 film They Live, where a group of down-and-out homeless men discover that people have been, in effect, so hypnotized by media distractions that they do not see their prison environment and the real nature of those who control them—that is, an oligarchic elite.

Caught up in subliminal messages such as “obey� and “conform,� among others, beamed out of television and various electronic devices, billboards, and the like, people are unaware of the elite controlling their lives. As such, they exist, as media analyst Marshall McLuhan once wrote, in “prisons without walls.� And of course, any resistance is met with police aggression.

A key moment in the film occurs when John Nada, a homeless drifter, notices something strange about people hanging about a church near the homeless settlement where he lives. Nada decides to investigate. Entering the church, he sees graffiti on a door: They live, We sleep. Nada overhears two men, obviously resisters, talking about “robbing banks� and “manufacturing Hoffman lenses until we’re blue in the face.� Moments later, one of the resisters catches Nada fumbling in the church and tells him “it’s the revolution.� When Nada nervously backs off, the resister assures him, “You’ll be back.�

Rummaging through a box, Nada discovers a handful of cheap-looking sunglasses, referred to earlier as Hoffman lenses. Grabbing a pair and exiting the church, he starts walking down a busy urban street.

Sliding the sunglasses on his face, Nada is shocked to see a society bombarded and controlled on every side by subliminal messages beamed at them from every direction. Billboards are transformed into authoritative messages: a bikini-clad woman in one ad is replaced with the words “MARRY AND REPRODUCE.� Magazine racks scream “CONSUME� and “OBEY.� A wad of dollar bills in a vendor’s hand proclaims, “THIS IS YOUR GOD.�

What’s even more disturbing than the hidden messages, however, are the ghoulish-looking creatures—the elite—who appear human until viewed them through the lens of truth.

This is the subtle message of They Live, an apt analogy of our own distorted vision of life in the American police state. These things are in plain sight, but from the time we are born until the time we die, we are indoctrinated into believing that those who rule us do it for our good. The truth, far different, is that those who rule us don’t really see us as human beings with dignity and worth. They see us as if “we’re livestock.�

It’s only once Nada’s eyes have been opened that he is able to see the truth: “Maybe they’ve always been with us,� he says. “Maybe they love it—seeing us hate each other, watching us kill each other, feeding on our own cold f**in’ hearts.� Nada, disillusioned and fed up with the lies and distortions, is finally ready to fight back. “I got news for them. Gonna be hell to pay. Cause I ain’t daddy’s little boy no more.�

What about you?

As I point out in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, the warning signs have been cautioning us for decades. Oblivious to what lies ahead, most have ignored the obvious. We’ve been manipulated into believing that if we continue to consume, obey, and have faith, things will work out. But that’s never been true of emerging regimes. And by the time we feel the hammer coming down upon us, it will be too late.

As Rod Serling warned:

All the Dachaus must remain standing. The Dachaus, the Belsens, the Buchenwalds, the Auschwitzes—all of them. They must remain standing because they are a monument to a moment in time when some men decided to turn the earth into a graveyard, into it they shoveled all of their reason, their logic, their knowledge, but worst of all their conscience. And the moment we forget this, the moment we cease to be haunted by its remembrance. Then we become the grave diggers.

The message: stay alert.

Take the warning signs seriously. And take action because the paths to destruction are well disguised by those in control.

This is the lesson of history

1bureauofmissingconstitutionalrightsCOLCP

By: Roger Landry (TLB)

The attached video clearly displays the mindset of so much of our “LAW ENFORCEMENT” community today. If you have any doubts as to the massive erosion of the power of We The People in the eyes of those who we pay to protect and serve us … read on.

This is not a new video nor is it an isolated incident. The reason I am posting this today is not so much due to this particular scenario (video), although it does represent a violation of rights. The reason I am posting this is because of the phrase spoken by the police Sargent first on the scene.

“You Must Be Doing Something Wrong if You Need to Invoke Your Rights�

So it would seem we now live in a country where invoking your constitutional rights is a sign of deception or guilt … This is not a guess but by the very fact he clearly states this, a mindset ingrained into our public servants by massive federal influence via such mechanisms as the 1033 program.

This mindset is validated and reenforced via the many sheep who acquiesce to, or attempt to justify, the NSA’s massive public spying programs, or the constant erosion of their rights via these public servants by saying …

“Well if I am doing nothing wrong, I have nothing to fear�

REALLY? And who decides what is right and what is wrong? Obviously NOT you or I, and for that matter the Constitution either! By this very comment you are acquiescing your rights to any and all who would hold power over you, conforming to any unconstitutional statute or law that does not immediately influence your comfort zone. A huge problem in America today is the surrendering of our authority as the true governors of this Republic to those who would govern us in illegal and unconstitutional fashions.

If these are now the standards we must conform to then I, being a patriotic individual who puts great faith in said constitution, will be suspect every remaining day of my life!

When it becomes the practiced rule that exercising our constitutional rights is no longer a guarantee but a privilege granted by a rogue government, and not supported by the people, or questioned and dismissed by a law enforcement officer on any given scene, and the very practice of these rights by invocation brings suspicion and repercussion, then tyranny in America is no longer merely a possibility … it has been institutionalized !!!

Cop on Tape: “You Must Be Doing Something Wrong if You Need to Invoke Your Rights�

Activist Post Author Melissa Melton says:

It has been upheld time and time and time and TIME again that the First Amendment protects one’s right to film police officers in public. Period.

That is it. End of story.

It is also not illegal to film locations from public property, even those that have been designated as “secure.� A sign is not a law and does not negate the Constitution. It just isn’t and it just doesn’t, despite an apparent effort to make it seem that way.

Now listen to what this cop says to these guys who recently decided to film prisoners being transported in and out of the Duval County, Florida courthouse’s sally port without identifying themselves:

Prisons_for_Profit_Youth 1

By TLB Contributor: Dave Hodges

My wife used to run the corporate McDonald’s restaurants as the executive director in Arizona for almost a decade. The goal of every one of her stores was to create return business. McDonalds would invest in playland equipment and dine in furniture, all designed to make the restaurants a desirable place to return to. The business principle is called “Return on Investment�. An now, our prisons are being organized along the same business principle.

The present privatized prison system operates on the same principle and it is quite effective. The average person is sentenced from 5-7 years in prison. There is no rehabilitation, only the prison life which produces a more hardened criminal. When the convict is released, they find it virtually impossible to get a job because of their ex-con label. Within three years of release from prison, 70% of all prisoners return. Can you imagine if every restaurant had a 70% return rate from its customers? If my wife could have enjoyed these kinds of numbers, she would have been the executive of the year, each and every year.

According to the Pew Center in their study The Long Reach of American Corrections (March 2009), it costs nearly $79 per day to house an inmate which is 20 times the cost of putting someone on probation. Wouldn’t it make sense to sentence nonviolent offenders to probation and save the taxpayers’ money? Of course it would, unless you are Vanguard Investments,  the largest owner of privatized citizens in the form of the Correctional Corporation of America (CCA), GEO (2nd largest private prison company), Wackenhut, Viacom, AOL Time Warner and they are all controlled by the Vanguard Family of Funds. You remember Vanguard don’t you?

The problem of prison slave labor, goes right to the top and these corporations have a powerful political ally.

This is the same Vanguard that moved money prior to the Gulf Oil Explosion in a manner which made massive sums of money for key investors in the same manner as did Transocean, Goldman Sachs and Halliburton. And one of those insiders that benefitted from the Gulf Oil Explosion was President Obama as he was vested in Vanguard I and Vanguard II. The late Bob Chapman reported on this Obama conflict of interest as did I in an earlier article.  Obama’s corruption is not limited to his investors having and acting on foreknowledge of the Gulf Oil Explosion, he is an active investor in the slave labor motivated Prison Industrial Complex.

Obama benefits and profits from prison slave labor.

Overt Slave Labor

wanted-inmates

Many of Wall Street’s giants have been invited to the party and are reaping huge profits. The following is a list of the corporations that contract with CCA and GEO to produce American slave labor goods. They include Intel, Northern Telecom, TWA, Nordstrom’s Boeing, Motorola, Microsoft, AT&T, prison for profitWireless, 3Com, Revlon, Macy’s, Pierre Cardin. Texas Instrument, Dell, Compaq, Honeywell, Hewlett-Packard, Nortel, Lucent Technologies, Target, and countless more. All of these businesses are excited about the economic boom generation by prison slave labor and most actively lobby for mandatory sentencing.

Generally, prison inmates in state run penitentiaries generally receive minimum wage for their work. In Agenda 21 controlled Colorado, they only receive about $2 per hour, well under the minimum for state run prisons. However, Colorado inmates are rich compared to inmates in privately-run prisons where they can receive as little as 17 cents per hour. This is worse than Walmart slave labor in China! The highest-paying private prison run by the CCA pays 50 cents per hour for “highly skilled positions.� I am not sure how this is even legal as I remember reading something about the 13th Amendment being repealed.

Prison Slave Labor Has Become One of the Mainstays of the American Economy

Since 2010, this trend is accelerating.

If there is a silver lining as America has found and antidote to the loss of manufacturing through the various free trade agreements (i.e. NAFTA, CAFTA). Unfortunately, prison slave labor is the solution. The Left Business Observer identifies private corporate interests benefiting from prison slave labor which includes the manufacturing of “93% of all paints and paintbrushes; 92% of stove assembly; 46% of body armor; 36% of home appliances; 30% of headphones/microphones/speakers; and 21% of office furniture.  This is a kind of Walmart for prisons and your State Legislatures are promoting this as a kind of cost savings, but they guarantee 90-100% prison bed occupancy rates. And we wonder why mandatory sentencing  has replaced judicial discretion when deciding the disposition of a criminal case.

Time Off for Good Behavior

The CCA, the largest owner of privatized prisons.

prison slave laborIn these normally overcrowded prisons, inmates may get their sentences reduced for “good behavior,� but for any violation of prison rules, they get 30 days tacked on to their sentences. I thought only a judge, under the Fifth Amendment due process provisions of the Constitution, can impose a prison sentence. This translates into more profits for CCA. According to a study of New Mexico prisons, it was found that CCA inmates lost  their “time off for good behavior�  at an 800% higher rate than inmates in state run prisons. CCA’s prisons are notoriously understaffed and this under-staffing leads to more acting out by the inmates which in turn leads to longer sentences resulting in more profit.

Therefore, one of the profit motivators for CCA is administration by neglect. In other words, they make more money if the prisons are poorly run and decidedly more dangerous.

If only the stock market was so reliable as a revenue generator.

Rockefeller Scams the System in Search of Profits

In New York,  Nelson Rockefeller’s heralded anti-drug law, initiated in 1973, provided for a mandatory prison sentences of 15 years to life for possession of four ounces of any illegal drug. Fifteen years to life for possessing four ounces of marijuana? Mr. Rockefeller, what could possibly be the motive for such strict drug laws? Answer, the same motive on why Obama has his money in Vanguard.

Besides Nelson Rockefeller, the privatized prison system has enjoyed having low friends in high places for a very long time beginning with Nancy Reagan’s “Just say no� and her husband’s War on Drugs program. Ironically under Reagan, his CIA traded guns for drugs in the Air America Iran-Contra Affair. Enter former president, George H. W. Bush, and an ex CIA director, and things only got worse. Bush helped fuel the growth of the industry during his presidency. And upon leaving office, he became a player in privatized prisons.

Under Reagan and Bush, Federal drug laws became more draconian.  Presently, Federal law mandates five years’ imprisonment with no hope of parole for possession of five grams of crack or 3.5 ounces of heroin. Further, Federal law provides for 10 years imprisonment  for possession of less than two ounces of crack. A sentence of five years for cocaine powder requires possession of 500 grams. This puts the United States on a par with nations like Turkey with regard to excessive sentences handed out for simply drug possession. There can only be one outcome from this trend curve, more slave labor and a lot more smiling faces on Wall Street.

Go to School and End Up In Prison

prison 666

The above graphic now applies to our children as our kids are increasingly becoming victim to what is called the School to Prison Pipeline.

Every good major leagues baseball team has a successful farm system of minor league teams in smaller towns and cities. This is where the majority of baseball talent develops their skills prior to coming to the parent club. The Prison Industrial Complex is run like a major league baseball team’s farm system in which young talent is developed to replace the aging veterans.

Your child this fall?

It used to be a given that unless one committed murder, juveniles under the age of 18 did not go to jail or prison. That is no longer the case. The incarceration of our youth is big business. There are almost 75,000 juveniles in prison and the rates are skyrocketing because of a phenomenon that is now being referred to as the school to prison pipeline in which schools are increasingly refusing to deal with even minor discipline issues and are placing juveniles in police custody.

In 2010, there were 5,574 school-based arrests of juveniles in the Chicago Public School. The juvenile arrests accounted for about one of every five juvenile arrests in the entire city of Chicago for all of 2010. The incarceration rates for Chicago’s juveniles are in line with most other metropolitan areas in the country. There is also a general trend of disproportionate rates of minority contact within the juvenile justice system, Black youth accounted for 74% of school-based arrests, and 22.5% of youth arrested were Latino. The enrollment of Chicago schools in was 45% Black and 41% Latino. These high arrest rates for so many of our minority youth, create potential slave laborers for the Prison Industrial Complex. Once a child is adjudicated in the justice system, society usually witnesses a straight line right to prison. These precious children are having their futures robbed from them before they can even get started. What are they being arrested for? The number one reason is for fighting on school grounds.

As a child, I had fights on school grounds, but nobody tried to send me to prison. The number two reason why children end up in the justice system is for possessing small amounts of marijuana.

As a former mental health counselor, I am all too familiar with the devastation brought on by use of drugs. However, marijuana is not one of these drugs. If legalizing marijuana runs against everything you believe in, how about decriminalizing. In other words, we still make the drug illegal but nobody goes to prison for simple possession.

The federal authorities, controlled by the corporations will never allow such a common sense, liberalized approach to drug enforcement. The feds even arrest medical marijuana dispensers and users. Why? Because Wall Street wants prisoners to fill its increasingly privatized and for-profit prison system. This is the major reason why America has 25% of the world’s prison population.

Our minority youth, in the inner cities, are being conditioned by the system that going to prison is part of the life experience. And with extremely high recidivism rates, prison slave labor will never have any shortage of participants.

The Prison Industrial Complex and their lobbyists are responsible for zero tolerance policies, mandatory sentencing and the three strikes life sentencing that is so prominent in many of our states and unless we identify these abuses and stop them, it is only going to get worse.

These events are culminating to establish was has been dubbed as the School to Prison Pipeline. Remember the term, because they are actively recruiting our children for the prison slave labor force.

Conclusion

Since the advent of privatized prisons in 1984, America has witnessed the passage of laws that require minimum sentencing, without regard for any extenuating circumstances. Our prison system is experiencing a much larger percentage of work by prisoners, thus creating profits for Wall Street which in turn motivate the incarceration of more people for longer periods of time. And privatized prison corporate investors make happy campaign contributors. Therefore, you can bet that the proverbial poop rolls down hill to the cops and the push is on to incarcerate more and more. Some argue that is fine, but when one of the fastest growing segments of our prison population are children, we all need to sit up take notice and take action.

Again, this system is very effective and efficient. With only four percent of the world’s population, the United States has over 25% of the world’s prison population. As a people, we are very ingenious as our corporations have learned to make money from virtually any life circumstance. Do your kids have a “get out of jail card�?
