New World Order
The Common Sense Show
by Dave Hodges
There are times in life when we need to know when to step aside and let others do the talking. This is that time. The Common Sense Show, has been deluged with communications which detail abnormally high amounts of troop and equipment movement across the United States in preparation for Jade Helm 15. Along the same lines, we are hearing from people who have relatives in Special Operations that very concerned about what is coming.
The following represents a very small cross-section of email notifications from Americans all across the country and they are highly concerned with what they are discovering about Jade Helm.
This article begins with a description of an encounter between the Health Advisor to The Common Sense Show, Katy Whelan and a Lt. Colonel from Buckley Air Force Base in Aurora, Colorado.
Katy Whelan and the Lt. Colonel
Katy Whelan serves as the medical advisor and reporter for The Common Sense Show. As such, she is privy to much of the information on topics which we have not yet published for one reason or another. With regard to Jade Helm 15, Katy has had access to some of the most sensitive information that is in our possession. Therefore, when Katy decides to assert herself in the field by confronting an official about Jade Helm, she can do so with an air of authority.
This past weekend, Katy had occasion to confront a Lt. Colonel Gallegos in a chance public meeting and the following represents the summary of her encounter.
“On Saturday April 11, I (Katy Whelan) was coming out of a Denver area Restaurant and saw a National Guard officer in the parking lot and decided to stop and chat with him about the Jade Helm training drill going on across the country”.
“I introduced myself to a Lt Colonel Gallegos from Buckley Air Force base in Aurora, Colorado. Below is a summary of the exchange”.
Katy: “I am aware of the Jade Helm drill and I am concerned as to why this drill was being conducted”.
Gallegos: (He was caught off guard and didn’t have a clear answer as he stumbled around for words and his body language was extremely nervous). “We have had drills like this before, like one we had before one 10 years ago”.
Katy: “There has never been a drill to this extent in size and scope”!
Gallegos: (His body language, again, was extremely nervous as he stumbled to find the right words as he chose to look down, smile and concede that I was correct on that point). “Yeah, that is true but it’s not a big deal”. (Editor’s Note: Not a big deal? Various factions of the military are preparing to impose martial law in the Jade Helms drills while extracting dissidents, and death squads will be planted in order to practice their “infiltration techniques” and this is “not a big deal”? This is an act of war against the American people and it is not a big deal?).
Katy: “I know the Jade Helm15 drill is in over 30 states”.
Gallegos: (He became increasingly nervous) and asked “How did I know this (as if I should not have this information)”?
Katy: “Isn’t this a joint a joint military and national guard operation and doesn’t this violate posse comitatus”.
Gallegos: “No, that is not true because the National Guard will be the only ones running the drills”. (Editor’s note: This is a bold faced lie uttered by Lt. Col. Gallegos! On the original Jade Helm 15 document, Special Operations Forces state that the 82nd Airborne and Special Operations Forces such as the Green Berets, Navy Seals will be a part of the drill. Therefore, Gallegos knows what he is participating in is illegal and is not limited to the National Guard. We further know that the Department of Defense is hiring people to play the role of detainees and incarcerated Americans under martial law).
Katy: “Then why, if it is a joint operation, why would the National Guard have the authority to be the organization to be running the drill”?
Gallegos: (Like a kid with his hand in the cookie jar, the nervousness of the body language was peaking as he stumbled around looked down and was rubbing his keys nervously). Katy took that to mean that her challenging statement was true.
“But nothing illegal will be done in the drill”, muttered Gallegos. (Editor’s Note: Despite the fact that the forces of Jade Helm will be extracting people without due process of law, and Gallegos thinks there is nothing wrong with this?).
Katy: “Our current administration is violating the US constitution every day, so how can you guarantee that the orders coming down would be any different”?
Gallegos: (Again, displaying nervous body language as exemplified by looking down to avoid contact and nervously smiling, he stated, “I assure you it would all be legal. The Governor would be in command of the drill as only the National Guard would be conducting the drills and I cannot say much more than that”. (Editor’s Note: Since the passage of the John Warner Defense bill, the civilian authority exercised by the National Guard was transferred from the Governor of a state to the President and we are supposed to believe that a Lt. Colonel in the National Guard would be ignorant to that fact?).
Katy: “Isn’t Jade Helm about the extraction drills? In other words, what does the military know that we don’t know to train for this type of operation?”
Gallegos: (He further displayed more nervous body language to an incredible degree as he became increasingly and nervously evasive). “I assure you that it is all on the up and up and legal”.
Katy: “If there was an illegal order that came down from the chain of command, what would you do”?
Gallegos: “That would be up to the individual to decide”.
Katy: She pressed the point and again asked “Why would we need an extraction drill and what are they specifically training for?
Gallegos: He remained evasive and said “it is all legal”.
Implications of the Gallegos Encounter
Katy’s take away was that Lt Col. Gallegos was completely taken by surprise and was shocked that she knew as much as she did and he did not know how to respond.
At one time, I was confident that American soldiers would not fire upon American citizens, but Gallegos weak defense in which he justifies the drill in his mind, accompanied by either his gross ignorance or his gross distortion of the truth (you decide), is indeed very concerning.
In the past week, The Common Sense Show has received over 200 emails with either accounts of massive troop and equipment movements within the United States, or the emails were from family members or friends of Special Operations Forces who are very nervous about the implications of Jade Helm.
Since the mainstream media will not effectively cover this and are engaged in the obfuscation of the truth, I thought I would share a brief representation of the 200+ emails received on the topic by The Common Sense Show.
Massive Troop and Equipment Movements
My wife and I went up to Idaho Falls to visit grandchildren. When we got to North Salt Lake we were both surprised to see the train of tanks and armored vehicles sided along the tracks.
My phone (with camera) were in the back seat and I wasn’t able to get it in time….Really enjoyed your article ‘Jade Helms
Use of Death Squads’
Great show and website. You are spot on.
Retired Army Vet (Former MP 21 years active duty, and region 15 leader for Oathkeepers) here in Western North Carolina.
A little less than 2 weeks ago on a wednesday evening at about 20:30 we had an overflight of our home of a UH-60 Blackhawk. Running lights were on. Maybe 120 Knots North to South.. Very unusual to see a UH-60 here especially on a weeknight. My wife remarked how I knew it was one before it got to us. I have many hours in and around them. Spent 4 years in the 10th Mountain Division along with 5 overseas tours including OIF.
Yesterday-Two things. I live in a rural area in the mountains near some state parks. I passed a HEMMIT fueler headed west into the mountains. Very odd as it was headed away from the town. Could’ve been the reserves or NG monthly drill but I never saw one here before. It was woodland camo pattern like the old days.
Also yesterday afternoon I heard more than one UH-60 travel nearby the town of Hendersonville, NC. I was unable to get eyes on due to some trees and terrain but I knew the sounds to be Blackhawks. Didn’t get a direction of travel..
We need to establish a virtual command post or website to track these reports. Does one already exist? Is there something else I can do to assist you in getting the word out? I have NO fear of them since I’m HAPPILY on ALL of their lists anyway. We need to counter them and be vigilant in spotting them. I’ve briefed my family of the situation and what to look for. The more eyes we get working the better chance we have to shine the light on this situation. I think that our beloved Republic is now dead and gone. Thanks for your great research and diligence.
Just thought to add to your articles on Jade Helm,
on this past Thursday, My husband and I saw 9
huge planes National Guard (the kind that carry
troops and tanks, I’m thinking out of Martinsburg,
- WV) flying low, within 15 minutes apart. They were
flying West to a known Fema camp. I’m not saying that’s
where they were headed, just in the direction. Have you
heard anything or know anything about this story?
Typically I keep a low profile given some of my activities but thought I’d drop you a quick note. I’ve commented quite a few times on various essays you’ve written and while I agree with you mostly have had some differences with what you. On Jade Helm, well, I think it’s one of the most important issues you’ve written about.
My brother is retired from US Army Special Forces. He was a Green Beret for nearly 25 years with multiple deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan. He now works for a military contractor at _____. I don’t usually talk about certain things with him because I don’t want to jeopardize his clearance which is pretty high. Yesterday I finally asked him – “What about Jade Helm”. He paused for a moment and said just a few words – “I’m very concerned”. And then went on to describe how much money will be spent and how it may play out. I live in rural Maricopa County which may see some people deployed here. I told him it would be interesting to see what happened if I encountered anyone and confronted them about what they were doing. I’ve been around these guys enough to know who they are. He simply said – “These people are so brainwashed and most have a chip on their shoulder. Be careful or you could get the shit beaten out of you.” I hung up the phone and just shook my head.
Sometimes I get concerned about all the “prepper porn” sites and misinformation out there that is simply another mechanism of fomenting fear. However, Jade Helm is an authentic exercise and could be a turning point in history. My brother said he’d never seen anything like it from a planning and implementation perspective. Furthermore, there is only one reason for it and I’m sure you can guess what that is – the total subjugation of the American people. As I commented yesterday a lot of attention has to start being paid to the people who will actually carry this out. Shaming those in the military publicly. I challenged my own brother yesterday and he got the message.
Russians and Chinese Troops On American Soil: Blue Helmets Anyone?
We have a group of Chinese here in Hannibal MO, the Mark Twain tourist town. This is a small town of about 40,000 residents. It is odd, to say the least.
I tried to talk to some of them about ducks and duck eggs, as they do love those things. They speak barely any English, and their school-age children do not speak English. They seem hostile and did not want to talk. Their children were making fun of Americans openly. (Editor’s Note: Sleeper cell?).
I know you have covered Russians being in Gatlinburg, TN. in big numbers. It is true. The locals hate the Russians because they are so aloof. What you may not know is there have been sightings of Russian soldiers at the base of the Smoky Mtns. by local residents. They park in their white vans and proceed to change into Russian military uniforms in the parking lot. We think they go on military missions in the hills. Some of us think that the Russians are boarding trucks that are stored in the Mtns because they have been seen on remote roads in trucks in full Russian uniforms by people illegally hunting. Yeah that is right, we have been banned from hunting in the area by the Forest Service. Many of us think that they are practicing to invade the area.
Love your radio show. Please keep reporting on this
Hello Dave,just wanted to let you know last week on Saturday my buddy who is a prepper and ex military called me.He lives off the grid here in AZ, told me that a flight of 8 A10 Warthogs were flying in formation over his property. One of them broke formation and headed right for him.T his guy has been in serious fire fights in the middle east. He really thought they were gonna open up on him. It didnt but then a second one broke formation and also did a run on him. After there run they did evasive manuvers,like they were avoiding ground fire. Please keep the intel comin in.
I think I played basketball against you in college. I played at Rockmont College, in Lakewood, and now the college is known as Colorado Christian. Anyway, I am pretty sure that this is you. The reason I am writing to you is because my brother in law is in the Navy Seals and trains recruits in California. He was here last week and I showed him your articles. He said that he will be a part of Jade Helm beginning June and they are absolutely going to be pulling actors out of their homes in what you referred to as extraction drills. He is very, very nervous about this. He said that he did not enlist to do this to American citizens. I asked him if the Red list thing is true would his people kill Americans? He said that was probably true and that is why he is concerned. Please do not use my name because I don’t want get him in trouble.
Dave, located just NW of Perry, GA is an Urban Warfare Training Facility. It is just west of I-75, behind the Guardian Center. Access is restricted and is constantly patrolled. Several weeks ago low level insertions were being made using Blackhawk Helicopters. Standard military type procedures were employed. I watched from alongside the road. I served 25 years in the military and retired in 1993. I know what is going on and am preparing for it. I’ll either E&E or DIP. Not going to surrender without a hellava fight.
A secret like this is too big to keep quiet. However, the only remaining question is whether or not Jade Helm will go live or is it a dress rehearsal for something to come on its heels? Only time will tell. However, it is clear that Jade Helm is an open declaration of war against the American people. There is not one valid reason for this administration to use taxpayer money in order to prepare to go to war against the American people. And how dare they declare Texas and Utah to be “hostile states”?
The following will not happen, but it should: The country needs to rise as one and say no more. Every politician needs to be recalled from office. Every officer who gives orders to carry out Jade Helm needs to be purged from the military. The only thing that is missing from Jade Helm are the Swastika armbands.

Everything about the war on Yemen is a smokescreen. Concealed behind the smoke is a tale of geopolitics and petro-politics that aims to control the Bab-el-Mandeb Strait and the Gulf of Aden.
The House of Saud and a military coalition that consists mostly of anachronistic monarchies are claiming to bomb Yemen as a means of saving the Yemenite people and their transition to democracy. The irony should not be lost on observers that recognize that the Saudi-led coalition — consisting of the Kingdom of Morocco, UAE, Kuwait, Kingdom of Bahrain, Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, Qatar, Pakistan, Egypt, Sudan, and Saudi Arabia itself — is comprised of an unhealthy mixture of backward family dictatorships and corrupt governments that essentially are the antithesis of democracy.
Just as important to note, the Saudi-led war on Yemen is a criminal act. The military attack on Yemen was not authorized by the UN Security Council. Nor can the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia justify its bombing campaign under Article 51 of the Charter of the United Nations, because Yemen and Ansarullah (the Houthi movement) pose no threat of war to Riyadh and never had any intentions of igniting a war in the Arabian Peninsula. This is why the Kingdom’s war on Yemen is categorically a violation of the Charter of the UN and international law.
The Houthis never wanted to aggravate Saudi Arabia let alone start a war against the Kingdom. Days before the Saudi-led war on Yemen, the Houthis had stealthily sent a delegation to Riyadh to establish an understanding with the Saudis and to calm them down.
Instead of opposing the illegal war on Yemen, Washington and its allies, including Britain, have thrown their political support behind the bombing of Yemen by the malfeasant Royal Saudi Air Force, which has committed war crime by intentionally bombing civilian infrastructure, including refugee camps and children’s schools.
It is no coincidence that most of the victims in Yemen are civilians. This is part of a Saudi strategy of establishing rapid military dominance, which is colloquially called “shock and awe.” Ring any bells? This is a strategy taken right out of Uncle Sam’s playbook that intends to demoralize resistance and scare the opponent into surrendering.
Pentagon’s not-so-hidden bloody hands
Not eager to reveal their roles in another illegal war on another sovereign country, the US and undoubtedly several of its NATO allies have decided to keep low profiles in the attack on Yemen. This is why Washington has opted to publicly present itself as only providing logistical and intelligence support to the Saudis for the war on Yemen.
The war on Yemen, however, would not be possible without the US. Not only have countries like the US and Britain provided military hardware to Saudi Arabia, but they are providing it with bombs for the attack, refueling its warplanes, providing intelligence, and giving the Kingdom logistical support.
Does this sound like non-involvement? Can the US really be considered a non-combatant in the war?
History — and very recent history at that too — is repeating itself in Yemen.
Observers should recall how Washington deceptively claimed that it did not want to go to war with the Libyan Arab Jamahiriya in 2011. The US publicly let the British and French take the lead in the NATO war on Tripoli while the Pentagon was actually the main force behind the war. US President Barack Obama called this a strategy of “leading from behind.”

The US strategy in Yemen is not too different from that of the NATO war on Libya. It is another case of cloak and dagger where the US does not want to be seen pulling the strings behind the aggression and violation of international law.
The Saudis would never have dared attack Yemen without Washington’s green light or help. The Pentagon is even selecting the bombing targets in Yemen for the Kingdom. “American military planners are using live intelligence feeds from surveillance flights over Yemen to help Saudi Arabia decide what and where to bomb,” the Wall Street Journal casually reported when the war began. National Security Council Spokeswoman Bernadette Meehan, even stated that the US had established “a joint planning cell with Saudi Arabia to coordinate” the attack on Yemen.
This is why it should not come as a surprise that Saudi Arabia used Washington as the platform to announce the launching of its war on Yemen. The Associated Press even noticed the weird podium that the Kingdom had selected. “In an unusual tableau, Saudi Arabia’s ambassador to the United States announced the rare military operation by his country at a Washington news conference about a half-hour after the bombing began,” the Associated Press reported on March 25.
Double standards: Remember EuroMaidan in Ukraine?
One ugly double-standard after another ugly double-standard sticks out. While the House of Saud argued that it has intervened militarily in Yemen to restore Abd-Rabbuh Manṣour Al-Hadi, who Riyadh claims is the legitimate president of Yemen, it has pushed for a war on Syria and worked with the US to topple Bashar Assad’s government.
Washington’s reaction is even more lopsided. When EuroMaidan was underway in Kiev and Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich was forced to flee in 2014, the US and its allies claimed that Yanukovich had lost all legitimacy because he fled Ukraine. Even as recently as February 2015, US officials have maintained this argument. “Well, let’s all refresh ourselves on the facts here. President — former President Yanukovich abdicated his responsibilities by fleeing Kiev during a political crisis,” the US Department of State’s spokesperson, Jennifer Psaki, told reporters during a press briefing.
Well Mr. Al-Hadi also fled his country. Nevertheless, the same measuring stick that was used in Ukraine is not applied to assess Al-Hadi’s legitimacy. Unlike its position on Ukraine, Washington claims that Al-Hadi is still the legitimate leader of Yemen.
The US is even willing to put aside its differences and work with Sudan, which the US Department of State claims is a state sponsor of terrorism, to bomb Yemen into accepting Al-Hadi back.
The basis for all of these contradictory positions is really a marker of US interests and Machiavellianism. It has nothing to do with legitimacy, democracy, or human rights.
While there some parallels between the two, there are key differences between Ukraine and Yemen. These key differences set Yanukovich and Al-Hadi apart and are what made Yanukovich legitimate and Al-Hadi illegitimate.
Firstly, unlike President Yanukovich, Al-Hadi resigned from office. For arguments sake, however, we will not dwell on this. There are much more important points for evaluating Al-Hadi’s legitimacy.
Unlike Yanukovich, Al-Hadi’s term had actually expired. While President Yanukovich was elected into office by the Ukrainian people for his term, President Al-Hadi’s term was extended through an administrative process. To quote Reuters: “Yemen’s political factions extended the president’s term by a year” on January 21, 2014. Al-Hadi was only kept in office to execute reforms, and this is the criterion for his legitimacy.
Under the above context, it has to be remembered that Al-Hadi was selected as a transitional figure. He became the president of Yemen to usher democracy and his term was extended in 2014 for this purpose. Instead, Al-Hadi dragged his feet on the democratic reforms — the fundamental basis for his legitimacy — that he was supposed to institute in Yemen. He was not fulfilling his mandate to share power and to enfranchise Yemen’s different political factions.
President Al-Hadi actually tried to concentrate power into his own hands while working to weaken Yemen’s other factions, including the Houthis, through gerrymandering by redrawing Yemen’s administrative regions.

Petro-politics & Bab-el-Mandeb Strait: Another war for control of oil?
The geopolitical significance of Yemen has weighed heavily in the equation. This war is as much about oil as it is about Saudi suzerainty and the House of Saud’s objectives to make Yemen a vassal state. Alongside Djibouti, Yemen forms part of an important maritime chokepoint, called the Bab-el-Mandeb Strait (also known as the Gateway of Tears/Anguish), which connects the Indian Ocean’s Gulf of Aden and the Red Sea.
It is no exaggerations to call the Mandeb Strait one of the world’s arteries. As a maritime chokepoint, the strait is just as important as Egypt’s Suez Canal — which connects the Mediterranean to the Red Sea — and the Strait of Hormuz in the Persian Gulf, because Bab-el-Mandeb overlooks one of the most strategic and important global corridors for the transportation of energy and international commerce.
Preventing US and Saudi rivals from gaining a strategic foothold over the Mandeb Strait and the Gulf of Aden is a major objective of the war on Yemen. The US and the House of Saud see control over the Mandeb Strait and the Gulf of Aden as strategically important in the scenario of a conflict with Iran where Tehran closes the Strait of Hormuz to oil shipments and international shipping. As the New York Times points out, “Nearly all Saudi commerce is via sea, and direct access to the Arabian Sea would diminish dependence on the Persian Gulf — and fears of Iran’s ability to cut off the Strait of Hormuz.”Plan B in such a scenario for the Kingdom includes using Aden and other Yemeni ports.
Support for the balkanization of Yemen chimes with this and ideas about dividing Yemen have been floating around since the Arab Spring. In 2013, the New York Times had this to propose about a Saudi takeover and annexation of southern Yemen: “Arabs are abuzz about part of South Yemen’s eventually merging with Saudi Arabia. Most southerners are Sunni, as is most of Saudi Arabia; many have family in the kingdom. The poorest Arabs, Yemenis could benefit from Saudi riches. In turn, Saudis would gain access to the Arabian Sea for trade, diminishing dependence on the Persian Gulf and fear of Iran’s virtual control over the Strait of Hormuz.”
Houthi control over Yemen, however, complicates and obscures US and Saudi plans.
Mandeb Strait and control of strategic chokepoints
As Hezbollah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah has rightly pointed out, the Houthis and the Yemeni military are capable of closing the Mandeb Strait. One of the reasons that Saudi Ambassador to Washington Adel Al-Jubeir stressed that the Houthis should not have control over ballistic missiles, heavy military hardware, and Yemeni bases is because the US and Saudi Arabia want to neutralize the potential of Yemen to close the Mandeb Strait, especially if Yemen should coordinate with Tehran as an Iranian ally in the future. In this regard, the Saudis have attacked Yemen’s missile depots. The aim of the air strikes include not only preventing Yemen’s missile arsenal from being used to retaliate against any exertions of Saudi force, but to also prevent them from being on hand to a Yemeni government aligned to Tehran or other US rivals.
Moreover, it has to be remembered that control over Yemen is not only important for mitigating the effects from a scenario where the Strait of Hormuz are closed by Tehran. Control over Mandeb Strait is also important for tightening the noose around the Iranians and in the scenario of a war with Iran. The same can be argued about a US strategy in the Indian Ocean against the Chinese.
Back in 2011, when Russia’s Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin was serving in Brussels as Moscow’s envoy to NATO, he noted that Washington was not only planning on taking over Syria as a beachhead for a war with Iran, but that the US and its allies would later try to control Yemen as the next step in preparing the grounds for an attack on Iran. At the time, RIA Novosti (now renamed Sputnik) reported that “Rogozin agreed with the opinion expressed by some experts that Syria and later Yemen could be NATO’s last steps on the way to launch an attack on Iran.”
Why did Netanyahu warn US Congress about Yemen?
Reports that Israel is a not-so-secret member of the Saudi-led coalition that is bombing Yemen need to be read, understood, analyzed in the above context about the Mandeb Strait too. Netanyahu’s unspoken concern is that Yemen could cut off Israel’s access to the Indian Ocean and, more specifically, its ability to easily deploy its Dolphin class submarines to the Iranian coast in the Persian Gulf.

Who is threatening who? According to the Sunday Times and Israeli sources, three nuclear-armed Israeli submarines are deployed near Iran’s shores at all times waiting on standby for orders from Tel Aviv to bomb Iran. In part, this is why Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was ringing the alarm bells about Yemen and the Mandeb Strait in the Washington Beltway when he went to speak on Capitol Hill on March 4.
Israel is concerned about Yemen because an independent Yemeni government could inhibit Israel’s nuclear-armed submarines from easily deploying from the Red Sea to the Persian Gulf to menace Iran with the threat of an attack.
Iran and the Houthis
Just like the case with Ukraine, all the problems in Yemen are also being blamed on a nearby country. While Russia has been blamed as the scapegoat for the plethora of problems in Ukraine, Iran has been blamed for the Saudi war on Yemen.
The Saudis are falsely depicting the Houthis as Iranian proxies or allies, because the movement is composed of Zaidi (Fiver) Shiites. The Houthis, however, are independent from Tehran and have agency as political actors; they are not Iranian proxies whatsoever. A common faith has not brought the Houthis and the Iranians, who are predominately Jaffari (Twelver) Shiites, together. Politics is what has brought the two together.
The sectarian language that falsely depicts Yemen as a battleground between Shia Muslims and Sunni Muslims is ill informed or intended to mislead people by design about the actual politics and history of Yemen. This type of sectarian language was never used when the House of Saud supported King Mohammed Al-Badr’s Zaidi imamate against the republicans or Ali Abdullah Saleh, who himself is a Zaidi Shiite, against the Houthis.
Hezbollah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah is very accurate when he points out that different regional players are turning to Tehran for help, because either Saudi Arabia will not help them or is pushing them in the direction of Iran through its foolish policies. This has been precisely the case for the Houthis. If it was not for the flawed policies of the US and Saudi Arabia, the Houthis would never have turned to Iran in the first place.
The Houthis also sent delegations to Moscow and Beijing to overcome US and Saudi efforts to isolate and weaken them internationally.
Will Yemen become Saudi Arabia’s Vietnam?
Historically, foreign intervention in Yemen has largely proven to be a disaster. Yemeni terrain is rugged and the elevated interior topography is perfect for guerilla warfare. Gamal Abdel Nasser’s Egypt lost many soldiers in North Yemen during its civil war, which was a major liability for Cairo.
When Ibn Saud was conquering Arabia, he was stopped in Yemen by King Yahya.
In more recent history or times, when Saudi Arabia invaded Yemen to fight the Houthis in 2009 and 2010, it was effectively defeated again in Yemen. The Houthis even ended up capturing towns inside Saudi Arabia.
Ground operations will not be a walk in the park for Saudi Arabia. Any invasion and occupation of Yemen will prove to be a disaster for the Kingdom. There are also complex tribal links between southern Saudi Arabia and Yemen. In the chaos a Pandora’s Box could be ignited that would result in rebellions inside the Kingdom itself.
The House of Saud seems to be cognizant of the dangers. This may be why it is pushing Pakistan and Egypt to send their troops.
Someone should tell the House of Saud that according to the Chinese general Sun Tzu, “The best war is the one that never has to be fought.”

The Common Sense Show
by Dave Hodges
Jade Helm is morphing into something very dark and very sinister. At the conclusion of the article, many of us will be asking about how we should collectively respond. We certainly need to explore the possibilities.
Patriot Protests Against Jade Helm
One of the reasons that I believe that Jade Helm could go live is because of the bravado and attention being given to this topic. The globalists who have hijacked our government have taken off the gloves and there is no denying what they are up to. As a result, people who have been clueless about the New World Order are awakening to the level of tyranny that is growing within our country. As Jade Helm swings into full operation this coming summer, millions of Americans, that mistakenly thought they were living in a Republic, will have their eyes opened as to what has happened to their precious country. Soon, the websites, Youtube channels, the television shows and the radio shows of the Independent Media will soon see their audiences grow to unparalleled popularity. And of course, the federal government minions will be there waiting as the FCC attempts to stifle dissent with the recently imposed Net Neutrality. Clearly the line in the sand is being drawn in preparation for the coming conflict.
The Newfound Awareness Has Already Grown Among the Special Operations Forces Veterans Groups
Paul Joseph Watson and Joe Biggs wrote an interesting article on Infowars in which they have discovered that “Patriot groups across the country are preparing to launch a ‘Counter Jade Helm’ operation to keep tabs on a controversial U.S. military exercise that some fear is part of preparations to train troops for civil unrest and martial law”. Among those protesting the Jade Helm 15 drills are former Special Operations forces as well as many veterans groups.
Along these lines, I am beginning to receive invitations to speak about Jade Helm to various groups including the Oath Keepers. People, in great numbers are and will be soon waking up and for good reason.
Two more Disturbing Elements of Jade Helm
In recent days, I have learned that the reason that we are seeing Jade Helm activity in so many areas and we are also witnessing the prepositioning of massive military equipment, is because Jade Helm forces will isolate certain geographic areas, thus trapping a segment of the population and keep them from fleeing to other areas. The second part of Phase III of the Jade Helm operation will be the insertion of Special Forces death squads among the civilian population which will target key dissident leaders. The remainder of this article will discuss these two issues.
Jade Helm Is Growing Like a Cancer
In my estimation, these veterans groups better accelerate their protest efforts if they want to have any meaningful impact, because in every part of this country, Jade Helm activities are growing and intensifying at an alarming rate.
In the past 24 hours alone, I have received a total of 54 communications regarding suspicious and increased military activity in every part of this country. Since I began tracking my communications specifically for reports of greatly increased military activity, most likely related to Jade Helm, I have counted a total of 31 states involved in the drill, not the nine states that the government is claiming. Here are four examples, out of the 54 of these communications reporting increased military activity in their area:
Traveling north on I-15. Saw a sided train of tanks, armored personnel vehicles at North Salt Lake on the east side of the freeway with three engines. All were camouflaged light tan.
Keep up the good work.
Hello Dave Hodges,
I live in Charlotte, North Carolina. Last week the “military?” surrounded the Water Treatment Facility in Charlotte, North Carolina. Just last year the city built a new holding reservoir. It’s pretty good size and is filled to the brim with water…but I’m 59 years old and don’t remember any time in my growing up years seeing this much “military” shuffling going on in the USA.
I’ve been an independent researcher for over 30 years…. I’m now 68 and moved out of Houston, TX…, following a friend’s advice to come to Patagonia, AZ…
Considering Jade Helm, I thought you’d want to know that the rumbling noise I heard early this evening was not 18-wheelers on Rt 82, but several bombers flying overhead from direction of Nogales heading east, maybe to Ft. Huachuca, followed by several military helicopters. I have always been very prescient and have a very bad feeling about what’s being put into position to bring genuine shock and awe to America…
Hello Mr. Hodges,
I don’t normally talk or post about what’s going on. I’m used to military vehicles as I’m prior service (but still “in”, extended another year last July…. with no CoC. Don’t even know what unit I’d fall under). I’ve deployed to Iraq in 2009 doing convoy security, so I’m very very familiar with MRAPs etc.
On my way to work this morning (I live in central Texas, right near fort hood) on 116 heading to gatesville my coworker texted me “dude lots of military vehicles in gatesville”. That was at 9:56, she also called me twice. I just shrugged it off, as gatesville sits right next to North Fort Hood. And west range road leading directly from main cantonment to north fort is closed, so units have to maneuver over civilian roads and back roads. Also units MOB out there.
I got to work at 10:45am, walked in and asked her about the vehicles she saw. She said they were all humvee’s, but blacked out black and grey. That caught my attention, as we normally do not, nor have I ever seen blacked out and or grey humvees before. She said there was a convoy coming into town, and then one right off of 36.
I could go on sir, about some of the sketchiest stuff I have ever experienced after coming home from Iraq. All the way up to the national guard extending me, and then never hearing from them. I honestly do not know, who else to talk too. Everyone thinks I’m nuts. I don’t wanna believe the stuff I’ve seen and know.
If you want to know more, just let me know sir.
Jade Helm Train with Enormous Military Equipment Headed for the West Coast of the United States
On April 10, 2015, Sizzorfite published this video of a military convoy train moving out of Canada to the United States. The train is filled with military armored vehicles, troop transport trucks and tanks. The train stretches as far as the eye can see.
As a result of consulting with my military sources, the strategy of prepositioning of military equipment can only include two possibilities: (1) The U.S. military is moving massive amounts of military equipment in order to prepare to be invaded in every quadrant of the country (not likely or practical); or, (2) The military is prepositioning its assets to isolate “trouble or HOSTILE areas” in preparations for subjugating, or MASTERING THE HUMAN DOMAIN”.
If one goes back to the originally released Jade Helm document, the 82nd Airborne is listed as a participant. The isolation of selected American communities would be a function of a traditional American military unit such as the 82nd Airborne. The Jade Helm document also listed several Special Operations forces to be among the participants and these organizations (e.g. Navy Seals) are traditionally tasked with targeted assassinations and this is described in the following paragraphs.
Death Squads to be Inserted Into American Communities
A Houston Chronicle report stated that Jade Helm soldiers will blend in with the local populations in an effort to test the effectiveness of infiltration techniques. Residents will be encouraged and commanded to report anything they deem suspicious during the Jade Helm drill.
I have taken this information to my sources and they confirmed that the Houston Chronicle Report is referring to the insertion of simulated death squads into selected American communities. This is the reason that Jade Helm is encouraging local citizens to report “suspicious activities”. This is a beta test for this operation. From an operational perspective, the fewer the number of the citizen reports the authorities receive, the more effective the intended stealth of the death squads would be judged to be. As opposed to more “traditional” military units, the Special Forces, associated with Jade Helm, would be the ones to carry out death squad executions of intended dissident target groups. In other words, this is how the Red List executions will be carried out. The more covert that their presence in a community would be, the less likely their intended targets would be spooked and make a run for safety. Fleeing individuals targeted for assassination is the reason why certain communities must be isolated so that intended targets cannot travel to congregate with fellow dissidents or to be able to escape final justice.
In addition to my military sources insight on this issue, more confirmation for the use of death squads on American soil comes from my friend and colleague, Roger Brown. Roger has written extensively on the subject of American death squads and has presented this information on The Common Sense Show. That interview can be accessed here. Roger’s written assessment of death squads in America can be found here.
It is outrageous that our government is using our money to practice the art of subjugating entire communities and to simulate the execution of people that they do not agree with. Jade Helm 15 is providing the public with an opportunity to galvanize against tyranny. What should we be collectively doing? This should be the dominant question of the day. If we permit Jade Helm 15 to continue, America wil slip into the abyss of experiencing some of mankind’s darkest moments.
The Common Sense Show
by Dave Hodges
In this series on the threats posed by the Jade Helm 15 drill and any subsequent implementation of martial law, it has been established that the first two phases of martial law are in play.
1) Phase One: Dissident Extractions
2) Phase Two: Gun confiscation under the auspices of this administration’s UN partners (e.g. Russians and Chinese).
The next phase in any martial law crackdown would consist of mass population relocation of undesirables. For Hitler, that meant the incarceration and extermination of Jews, homosexuals, Gypsies and political undesirables. In modern America, concentration camp candidates would include the list of the “enemies of the state” listed in the MIAC Report (e.g. former Ron Paul supporters, Constitutionalists, Second Amendment supporters, etc.). This article will expose the fact that the lists have been expanded to anyone who has respiratory distress even of a minor nature (chest cold congestion).
This report establishes Phase Three of any martial law implementation, including Jade Helm 15, or its successor, will consist of the forced relocation of major populations to detainment facilities. This process has already been ushered in under stealth and is taking the form of America’s Trojan Horse.
TROJAN HORSE ALERT #1: The Legal Authority to Send “SUSPECTED” and ILL Patients to FEMA Camps and Anyone Else Suspected of Having Been Exposed!
Last summer when the “Ebola scare” consumed the United States. Because of the perceived crisis, Americans barely raised an eyebrow when the Obama administration greatly expanded quarantine lists, as well as the announced intentions to the use of “quarantine facilities (i.e. FEMA camps) and providing a means of transport for average citizens to these camps.
Before one can “legally” transport medically contagious patients to “quarantine facilities” and await the inevitable, the public must be reassured that the rule of law is being followed.
Last summer the Obama administration took full advantage of the Ebola scare when they changed the handling of Ebola patients who 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’sExecutive Order 13295, which allows for the, “apprehension, detention, or conditional release of individuals to prevent the introduction, transmission, or spread of suspected communicable diseases.”
Obama has granted his administration the authority to detain, in any manner deemed necessary, any person who demonstrates any degree of respiratory distress. This means people with noninfectious asthma could be detained.
The CDC has greatly expanded guidelines which permit the government to quarantine people with “fatigue” and lists this as a potential Ebola symptom. Anyone THOUGHT to be exposed to an Ebola patient can be quarantined. CDC has opened themselves up to the likelihood that Ebola can be transmitted even from people who are not presently symptomatic at the time of transmission. This goes hand in hand with present CDC measures that allow for the quarantine of non-symptomatic persons. All of this is contextual background for a thinly veiled plot to forcibly relocate millions of Americans to FEMA camps (aka medical quarantine camps).
Medical Martial Law FEMA Camps to Be Run By HHS
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.
I have discovered a Trojan Horse in our midst. It is one thing to plan to incarcerate millions of Americans, it is quite another to get Americans to these camps. The 2014 Ebola scare has provided the means to transport Americans to FEMA camps.
TROJAN HORSE ALERT #2: “Ambulance” Contracts Will Deport Americans to FEMA Camps
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.
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.
Please note the term “medical needs associated with mental health”. We have seen this strategy with the Obama administration when they incarcerated veterans and forcibly medicated them as we saw in the case of Brandon Raub. It is apparent that the same strategy is about to be applied to the American public as a whole. The Soviet Union used to call this practice (“political schizophrenia”).
ESF #8 established the national ambulance contract, which is designed to provide support for evacuating seriously ill, mentally 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).
TROJAN HORSE ALERT #3: The Medical Quarantine Detainment Centers (FEMA Camps) Have No Real Medical Facilities or Medical Personnel
Under the guise of quarantining Ebola victims, the administration codified this program under HHS. However, there is a serious red herring in their approach.
Look at the participating partners in the “hospital” detainment centers in the EFS #8 document. This list is very revealing as to the intended purpose of these camps.
WHERE ARE THE MEDICAL PERSONNEL, FACILITIES OR AGENCIES?
Sometimes, it is not what a person says that is important, it is what they do not say. In the above list of the 2014 Ebola 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?
These camps are not medical facilities. These camps are death camps. This is a Trojan Horse. There is not one shred of evidence that these camps are intended to treat or even make comfortable people who will contract a serious communicable disease such as Ebola. The most disturbing thing is that these camps will be death camps for healthy people. If you are a person who is unlucky 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 following story cannot be told too many times because it exposes the dark nature of this administration by exposing some very core beliefs were are witnessing coming out of the Obama administration.
I cannot shake a story that the late Larry Grathwohl told me regarding a conversation he had with Bill Ayers. Larry’s conversation took place with Ayers while he was serving as a FBI special informant sent to investigate Ayers’ organization, the Weatherman Underground. Ayers is also the man who launched President Obama’s political career from the living room of his Chicago area home.
Grathwohl revealed, on my talk show, that he asked Ayers, the then leader of the radical group the Weathermen Underground, in a meeting of about 25 well-to do fellow Weatherman, most with advanced degrees from Ivy League Universities, what the Weathermen planned to do when they achieved their goal of a communist take over of the government. Grathwohl stated that Ayers paused for a moment and then said that it was likely that about 50 million Americans will have to be re-educated in concentration camps located in the American Southwest and that about 25 million would have to be eliminated, meaning that they would have to be murdered. The potential implications are stunning.
This is the Trojan Horse of Jade Helm 15.
The Common Sense Show
by Dave Hodges
As many of us have suspected since the announcement of Jade Helm 15 and their desire to “Master the Human Domain”, there is a lot to Jade Helm 15 that is not being released. We know the “drill” is a “dissident extraction” exercise which many of us fear could go live at any time. A week ago, I received information that the United Nations, including Russian troops, were going to have a presence in the drill. Subsequently, I reported that the United Nations would have an “observer” in every unit in every part of the Jade Helm 15 drill.
Common sense would dictate that Jade Helm 15 personnel do not need 60 days (July 15-September 15) to practice/complete extraction drills. Most researchers as well as my insider sources concur there is more to Jade Helm than the announced purpose. Although the drill is not scheduled to start in over 3 months, it actually began in Ft. Lauderdale with extraction of dissidents on March 27, 2015.
Is there a phase two to the Jade Helm 15 drill? The short answer is “yes”.
Phase One: Potential Dissident Extraction
Phase Two: Gun confiscation
Jade Helm 15 will not likely stop with two phases and I know for a fact that this list of Jade Helm 15 applications will grow. Not surprisingly, the United Nations will be involved every step of the way. Now that I have been provided with a two phase operation from trusted insider sources, can these claims be supported by publicly known facts?
Phase One: Dissident Extraction
On Friday March 27, 2015, I was interviewed by Nik Rajkovic, a news reporter for NewsRadio 740 KTRH in Houston. In the course of the interview, Rajkovic informed me that he had interviewed a Sheriff’s Deputy and was told that Jade Helm 15 was practicing “extractions of dissidents”.
A review of the events in Ft. Lauderdale on March 27, 2015, clearly demonstrated that a dissident extraction drill was indeed being conducted.
The “dissidents” were then transported to waiting white vans for transport and then this was followed by removal of the drill’s participants to the now infamous black helicopters.
The United Nations Prepositioning of Military Assets Began In the Summer of 2014
Last summer reports, photos and videos began to surface regarding the entry of UN military equipment on American soil. The following represents some of the images of these reports dating back to June of 2014.
Don’t believe the validity of these still photos? Then please explain the following video? (Foul language: Viewer Discretion Advised)
Phase Two: Gun Confiscation and the UN Small Arms Treaty
Reportedly, Phase Two of Jade Helm will consist of gun confiscation and there is ample evidence pointing to this strong possibility and it started with a very concerning act that involved the Secretary of State, John Kerry, and President Obama as Kerry signed the illegal and unconstitutional UN Small Arms Treaty which effectively bans all private ownership of guns. There is one provision in the treaty that has received absolutely no attention in our mainstream media and that is the section having to do with confiscation and the use of foreign troops:
State parties to the ATT “may seek assistance” in implementing the Treaty. The ATT indicates that a voluntary trust fund was established to promote the establishment of a multinational gun confiscation program.
I have learned that JH 15 will also use its “Mutli-national” partners in the upcoming drill, thus enhancing the strong possibility that foreign troops will be used to seize American guns. Therefore, it is difficult to believe that gun confiscation is not on the list of activities for JH 15 and that my sources are correct.
More proof for Jade Helm morphing into a gun confiscation drill comes from the United Nations itself. Under the heading, “Hiding in plain sight”, the United Nations previously advertised for the following position in the Summer of 2014:
Posting Title: Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration Officer, P4
Job Title Code: DISARMAMENT, DEMOBILIZATION AND REINTEGRATION OFFICER
Department/Office: Department of Peacekeeping Operations
Duty Station: New York
Job Description: A minimum of seven years of progressively responsible experience in disarmament, demobilisation and reintegration or related area. Experience working within peacekeeping, peace-building or development programmes operations is desirable. Experience with small arms control, conflict/post-conflict crisis management, economic recovery is desirable. Experience coordinating multiple partner agencies, funds or programmes is desirable.
Analysis of the Job Description
What is highly significant is that nobody seems to be talking about this illegitimate imposition of foreign troops on our soil and this notion is represented in the phrase “conflict/post conflict management“! What conflict/post conflict management? Conflict management is another euphemism reserved for one of two possibilities. First, this implies there will be a civil war, hence the reason for the Jade Helm 15 drills. With over 260+ senior military officers fired by Obama for not embracing the future need to fire on American citizens, speaks clearly to this point. Ask yourself, what would be the one thing that this administration could do that would guarantee a violent response from many of the people? That one thing would be to start seizing private guns. Foreign troops will be operating under the UN flag in the pursuit of this agenda. Obama is in the midst of purging the military leadership who will not necessarily and indiscriminately fire upon American citizens who would resist having their Second Amendment rights obliterated by this present administration. Secondly, in order to create the manufactured need to impose martial law, the administration would need a pretext, a false flag event. I have been covering the pretext possibilities for over a year. In fact, the pretext has been rehearsed repeatedly since last fall (see FEMA and DHS drills below).
Peacekeeping is normally the euphemism reserved for gun confiscation and population subjugation. If there is any doubt to the veracity of this claim, the following phrase “Experience with small arms control“, should remove any doubt as to what is coming. Further this job description uses phrases such as “demobilization“. Further, the phrase “reintegration” is also significant. By definition, what is a re-education camp designed for? Quite simply put, it is designed for reintegration back into society with a more politically appropriate attitude. Back into society from where? This question can be answered with a pair of four letter words, FEMA Camp.
It is clear that this administration is going after the guns and it will rely heavily on its “Mutli-national partners to accomplish this goal. Generally, this kind of bold move would require the implemetation of a false flag attack in order to minimize public resistance. In 2013, a plethora of potential false flag events were rehearsed by FEMA, DHS and their “foreign partners”. Gun confiscation is clearly part of what is meant by “Master the Human Domain”.
Rehearsing for Martial Law
In the Fall of 2013, FEMA, DHS and select foreign entities extensively rehearsed for the following contingencies in the following list of preparedness and disaster drills planned and carried out over a six week period:
1. FEMA purchase orders for over $14.2 million for MREs and heater meals were delivered to Region III by October 1st, 2013.
2. FEMA purchase orders for 22 million pouches of emergency water were delivered to Region III by October 1st, 2013.
3. FEMA purchase orders for $13.6 million for MREs and heater meals were delivered to Austin, TX. by October 1st, 2013.
4. $11 million in antibiotics were delivered to FEMA region III by October 1st ordered by CDC
5, Nine-week training course for UN Peacekeepers in CONUS to learn Urban Warfare, English, and US weapons systems beginning in late July 2013 for 386,000 troops and the “drill” was wrapped up by October 1, 2013
6. Great Shakeout Drill conducted on October 17, 2013
7. More Than 1,000 Banks participated in the National Cyber-Attack Drill Oct. 16-17, Oct. 23-24
8. Quantum Dawn’ was a Cyber-Attack Bank Drill –
9. GridEx2 Nov. 13-14, 2013, which was a simulated EMP attack upon the American power grid. Both the Russians and the Chinese were allowed to participate.
Let’s focus ofn#5. Why would foreign troops (i.e. UN Peacekeepers) practice urban warfare and be taught English unless they were part of a martial law occupation force? And what do martial law occupation forces do? They round up undesirable citizens, seize guns and relocate populations for final disposition. Buried within the myriad of these 2013 drills, it is easy to conclude that somewhere in this mess is a false flag drill designed to set into motion the implementation of martial law under the auspices of the United Nations. Jade Helm 15 is the manifestation of all this planning.
There are two phases emerging from Jade Helm 15. These two phases are bad enough. However, there are certain to be more as the nation enters into what could be a long, hot summer.
The Common Sense Show

America is already under martial law. Jade Helm 15 will not bring martial law to America, it is already here, as this article will make clear. Jade Helm 15 is the manifestation of martial law. At minimum, this drill is the practice run for the implementation for the 17 principles associated with martial law. In the worst case scenario, this drill will go live and all 17 martial law principles, already in place, will go live as well.
Seventeen Martial Law Characteristics
Most experts agree that hard core martial contains the following 17 essential elements. This article discusses where America is at iwith regard to the 17 categories.
1-Mass Roundups of Political Dissidents
Yes x No
Jade Helm 15 provides for the extraction of political dissidents. JH 15, as evidenced by the Ft. Lauderdale photos and videos was clearly an “extraction of political dissidents drill.
In some ways, JH 15 is an extension of an obscure program that is still in place and it is known as Plan C. According to documents recently released to MuckRock, Plan C was a 1956 plan designed to arrest 13,000 subversives along with foreign diplomats if the cold war should go hot.
At some point, Plan C gave way to what is referred to as Main Core. Wikipedia describes Main Core as a massive database, which began in the 1980s by the federal government. The program consists of the gathering of personal and financial data of millions of U.S. citizens believed to be threats to national security. The data primarily originates with the NSA and the FBI, CIA, and alphabet soup agencies. The program grew to unprecedented levels following 9/11 and the implementation of the Patriot Acts I and II. The data is collected and stored without warrants or court orders. The database’s name is derived from the fact that it contains “copies of the ‘main core’ or essence of each item of intelligence information on Americans produced by the FBI and the other agencies of the U.S. intelligence community.” Today, we know from insider sources, that the creation of the “Red List” comes from this program. The Red List is a compilation of names deemed to be the potential leadership of any dissident movement. The program refers to dissidents as “Favorites” and they AND their close associates are targeted for elimination with extreme prejudice PRIOR to the implementation of martial law. There will be more on executions later in the article. From the best available information, this is precisely what JH 15 is preparing for.
2-Dusk to dawn curfews
Yes x No
Every martial law extraction drill and subsequent mass roundups contains dusk to dawn curfews. Simply put, the establishment does not want to permit the dissidents to meet and plan under the cover of darkness. More importantly, when the round ups start, the authorities need to know where to find their targets of interest.
3-Rationing of essential resources
Yes x No
4-The seizing of personal assets (e.g.) food and water
Yes x No
5-Control over all food and water
Yes x No
In December, 1974, National Security Council directed by Henry Kissinger completed a classified study entitled, “National Security Study Memorandum 200: Implications of Worldwide Population Growth for U.S. Security and Overseas Interests.” The study was based upon the unproven claims that population growth in Lesser Developed Countries (LDC) constituted a serious risk to America’s national security. Population was mandated to be reduced in the LDC’s. THIS PROGRAM COULD JUST AS EASILY BE TURNED ON AMERICANS AND THE FOLLOW DATA STRONGLY SUGGESTS THAT THIS HAS ALREADY HAPPENED!
With the stroke of his pen, Obama has total and absolute control over all food where his EO 13603 states:
- 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…”
This unconstitutional EO is particularly disturbing in that it clearly states that the government has control over anything that is “capable of being ingested by either human beings or animals…” If you thought that you and Fido were going to get through the coming food crisis by storing and consuming dog food, think again.
How will farmers maintain the nation’s food supply when all fertilizer, their farm equipment and all of their vehicles are under the control of this sociopathic President or the next power-hungry President? Obama has set himself to be the modern day Stalin in which he would use food as a weapon to force compliance upon the American people just as Stalin did to the people of Ukraine.
6-The prohibition of weapons of any kind including guns, knives or chemicals which can be turned into explosives
Yes No___In Progress x
Despite all the rhetoric with regard to gun control, Obama has been able to surprisingly put very little into law. He has banned certain AR-15 ammunition by administrative fiat, but he has made negligible progress toward getting the guns out of American hands. It is likely that Obama, once martial law has been officially implemented, will declare that any possession of guns will be a felony and all that do not turn in their guns will be guilty of a felony and sent to prison without any due process.
There is however, one very concerning act that involved the Secretary of State, John Kerry, and President Obama and that would be the illegal and unconstitutional signing of the UN Small Arms Treaty which effectively bans all private ownership of guns. There is one provision in the treaty that has received absolutely no attention in our mainstream media and that is the section having to do with confiscation:
State parties to the ATT “may seek assistance” in implementing the Treaty. The ATT indicates that a voluntary trust fund was established to promote the establishment of a multinational gun confiscation program.
I have learned the JH 15 will also use its “mutlinational” partners in the drill. Therefore, it is difficult to believe that gun confiscation is not on the list of activities for JH 15.
7-The confiscation of property, homes and businesses
Yes x No
8-Arrests without due process
Yes x No
9-Massive “papers please” checkpoints with intrusive searches
Yes x No
All across the country, the MERS theft, by the mega banks (e.g. Bank of America, Wells Fargo) has increased through the “assistance” a very favorable set of judicial rulings which allows the banks to steal the homes of Americans without so much as a mortgage note. In many states, these procedings can take place without even setting foot inside of a courtroom. The estimated number of American households who have been victimized by MERS is estimated at 13 million (Personal communication and radio appearance disclosure on The Common Sense Show by Dave Kreiger, the author of Clouded Titles).
The most ubquitous statement in this article is to declare that the Obama adminnistration has the authority to arbitrarily arrest American citizens, detain them indefinitely, and do whatever they please with these individuals. I am referring to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) which granted the federal government to play judge, jury and executioner. The day the NDAA passed Congress, what the day that the Constitution was declared “Dead on Arrival”.
The government has moved to a “Papers Please” society with the implementation of the REAL ID which is a document which contains highly personal information and will soon store everything about you including your financial information. Beginning later this year and extending into 2016, the public will not be able to travel, even within the United States, or operate a motor vehicle without this document. This is ultimate in Big Brother surveillance and control.
Yes x No
11-Forced conscription into various labor camps and even into the military
Yes x No
“Detainees may also be segregated by ethnic and family groups and further segregated to protect vulnerable individuals. Additionally, detainees may be categorized by behavior (cooperative, neutral, or combative) to accurately resource guards and facilities”. Juveniles within the I/R population are typically segregated from the general population. (See DODD 3115.09.)
Does this sound like forced relocation to you. If the government wasn’t planning to carry out this action, then why would they grant themselves the authority to do so?
All of the following references to EO 13603 are verbatim copy and paste of the referenced PDF file entitled, Executive Order 13603.
PART VIII—GENERAL PROVISIONS
Sec. 801. Definitions. In addition to the definitions in section 702 of the Act, 50 U.S.C. App. 2152, the following definitions apply throughout this order:
(a) ‘‘Civil transportation’’ includes movement of persons and property by all modes of transportation in interstate, intrastate, or foreign commerce within the United States, its territories and possessions, and the District of Columbia, and related public storage and warehousing, ports, services, equipment and facilities, such as transportation carrier shop and repair facilities. ‘‘Civil transportation’’ also shall include direction, control, and coordination of civil transportation capacity regardless of ownership. ‘‘Civil transportation’’ shall not include transportation owned or controlled by the Department of Defense, use of petroleum and gas pipelines, and coal slurry and pipelines used only to supply energy production facilities directly.
The above effectively restricts movement of all goods, services and people.
AGENCIES CONCERNED WITH INTERNMENT AND RESETTLEMENT
1-40. External involvement in I/R missions is a fact of life for military police organizations. Some government and government-sponsored entities that may be involved in I/R missions include—
International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC).
International Organization of Migration.
Local U.S. embassy.
Department of Homeland Security.
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
Federal Emergency Management Agency.
Again from Executive Order 13603, Section 502 provides for the introduction of slave labor to America.
p style=”text-align:left;” align=”center”>Sec. 502. Consultants. The head of each agency otherwise delegated functions under this order is delegated the authority of the President under sections 710(b) and (c) of the Act, 50 U.S.C. App. 2160(b), (c), to employ persons of outstanding experience and ability without compensation and to employ experts, consultants, or organizations. The authority delegated by this section may not be redelegated.
This means that Obama, and his fellow communists, can seize any resource, property, or person at any time for any reason, including being able to force that person to perform assigned labor without being paid.
There is only ONE word for forced, “uncompensated employment”. That word is slavery. Congratulations President Obama, you have effectively repealed the 13th Amendment to the Constitution.
12-Outlawing of free speech
Yes x No
13-Control of the media
Yes x No
14- Massive surveillance programs and snitch programs
Yes x No
15-The total control or elimination of religion
Yes x No
The Net Neutrality Act implemented by administrative fiat by the FCC has given the government complete power over over all media and ultimately all free speech.
Religion is in grave danger in this administration and the regulations of the Clergy Response Team clearly shows the intent of the federal government. At the time of citizen roundups, the decision has been made to eliminate Christianity as a viable and legal practice as evidenced by the revelations of Pastor Walt Mansfield who provided me with the details in an exclusive interview following his training with the Clergy Response Team. It is highly recommended that you read this article as it details that FEMA camps are real, the Pastor’s role in helping to maintain order within a FEMA camp and the fact that Christianity will not be allowed. Further, Pastor Mansfield revealed that Clergy Response Team pastors are required to spy on those that they minister to. Finally, Mansfield revelaed that reading from the Bible is expressly forbidden because Christianity is a form of persecution.
16-Executions without due process of law
Yes x No
17-Total suspension of the Constitution
Yes x No
When Executive Order 13603 and the NDAA were allowed to stand, this effectively destroyed the Constitution and they made all civil liberties to be null and void. The NDAA
Most Americans do not realize that executions without due process of law have already been carried out against American citizens. The primary targeted individual, Anwar al-Awlaki, was a radical Muslim cleric whom U.S. officials said was involved in planning Al Qaeda operations and terror attacks. Besides al-Awlaki, Samir Khan, Jude Kennan Mohammed and Awlaki’s son, Abdulrahman Anwar al-Awlaki, were executed by drones according to Attorney General Holder. The precedent has been set and Holder declared the authority to carry out unwarranted executions. These were American citizens who were executed without being afforded the due process of law. Either our laws apply to everyone, or they apply to nobody.
Jade Helm 15 is not the problem, it is the manifestation of the problem. And what is the problem? How can anyone look at the 17 points raised in this article and not conclude that we are already under martial law and are awaiting our final disposition? Jade Helm 15 might just be that final disposition, and if it is not JH 15, it will be something like it right on its heels.
Finally, when martial law and these 17 points are realized, there will be an international flavor to the process and this will be the topic of a future article.

“There is pressure in the system to go toward that; we should do everything possible”
Officials within the UN are pushing the notion that the human population should be reduced in order to effectively combat climate change.
The long standing notion has been continually pushed by Christiana Figueres, the Executive Secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCC). In 2013, Figueres had a conversation with Climate One founder Greg Dalton regarding “fertility rates in population,” as a contributor to climate change.
The comments are made at 4.20 into the following video:
“A related issue is fertility rates in population.” Dalton opined. “A lot of people in energy and environmental circles don’t wanna go near that because it’s politically charged. It’s not their issue.” he added.
“But isn’t it true that stopping the rise of the population would be one of the biggest levers and driving the rise of green house gases?” Dalton asked.
“Obviously less people would exert less pressure on the natural resources,” Figueres answered, also noting that estimates suggest the Earth’s population will rise to nine billion by 2050.
Dalton then questioned whether that figure could in some way be stalled or halted.
“So is nine billion a forgone conclusion? That’s like baked in, done, no way to change that?” he asked Figueres.
“There is pressure in the system to go toward that; we can definitely change those, right? We can definitely change those numbers,” Figueres said in response.
“Really, we should make every effort to change those numbers because we are already, today, already exceeding the planet’s planetary carrying capacity.” she also claimed.
“So yes we should do everything possible. But we cannot fall into the very simplistic opinion of saying just by curtailing population then we’ve solved the problem. It is not either/or, it is an and/also.” the UN official also said.
Climate One is a self described public affairs forum which advocates extreme action to combat climate change. It is a branch of The Commonwealth Club of California based in San Francisco, essentially a talking shop visited regularly by heads of government and corporate business.
Figueres is no stranger to controversial statements when it comes to climate change. The UN official previously described the goal of the UNFCC as “a complete transformation of the economic structure of the world.”
She has also repeatedly said that a Chinese style communist dictatorship is better suited than the U.S. constitutional system to fight “global warming.”
Figueres told Bloomberg News last year that the Chinese government (which continues to enforce forced abortions, infanticide and compulsory sterilization) is “doing it right” when it comes to climate change, even though China is by far the biggest emitter of greenhouse gasses.
Figueres noted that a partisan divide in the U.S. Congress is “very detrimental” to passing climate related legislation, while the Chinese Communist Party, sets policies by decree. President Obama clearly agrees given that he continues to bypass Congress by issuing executive orders on climate change.
As InfoWars has continually noted, there is a fundamental flaw in associating climate change with overpopulation.
Populations in developed countries are declining and only in third world countries are they expanding dramatically. Industrialization itself levels out population trends and even despite this world population models routinely show that the earth’s population will level out at 9 billion in 2050 and slowly decline after that. “The population of the most developed countries will remain virtually unchanged at 1.2 billion until 2050,” states a United Nations report. The UN’s support for depopulation policies is in direct contradiction to their own findings.
Once a country industrializes there is an average of a 1.6 child rate per household, so the western world population is actually in decline. That trend has also been witnessed in areas of Asia like Japan and South Korea. The UN has stated that the population will peak at 9 billion and then begin declining.
In addition, as highlighted by the Economist, global fertility rates are falling.
Since radical environmentalists are pushing to de-industrialize the world in the face of the so called carbon threat, this will reverse the trend that naturally lowers the amount of children people have. If climate change fanatics are allowed to implement their policies, global population will continue to increase and overpopulation may become a real problem – another example of how the global warming hysterics are actually harming the long term environment of the Earth by preventing overpopulated countries from developing and naturally lowering their birth levels.
Even if you play devils advocate and accept that humans do cause catastrophic warming and there are too many of us, and if you can skip past the eugenics connotations of population control and depopulation policies, those methods are fundamentally still not a valid solution to the perceived climate change threat.
The real solution would be to help increase the standard of living of the cripplingly poor third world, allowing those countries to industrialize, and seeing the population figures naturally level out.
Instead, the third world has seen a doubling in food prices owing to climate change policies such as turning over huge areas of agricultural land to the growth of biofuels.
In addition, Climate legislation continually pushed by the developed world has those nations taking on less of a burden than anticipated demanding more of poorer countries, despite the fact that any further cuts in CO2 emissions will further cripple their flimsy economies and poverty-stricken people.
Previous legislation, such as the Copenhagen agreement, allowed people in developed countries to emit twice as much carbon per head than those in poorer countries, who have not caused the rise in emissions said to be threatening our existence on the planet. The revelations have led third world leaders to accuse the developed world of “climate colonialism”.
Linking environmental policy to depopulation agendas opens the door to eugenics and it is no surprise that through that door have come pouring hordes of elitist filth just begging to be on the front line of the extermination policy.
One example is UK-based public policy group The Optimum Population Trust (OPT), which has previously launched initiatives urging wealthy members of the developed world to participate in carbon offsets that fund programs for curbing the population of developing nations.
In 2007, the group also published a report announcing that children are ‘bad for planet and ‘having large families should be frowned upon as an environmental misdemeanour in the same way as frequent long-haul flights, driving a big car and failing to reuse plastic bags.
While you may think ideas of sterilization and depopulation could never be accepted by the public, those very concepts are now being embraced and popularized by some as the way forward for humanity.
The head of the UN’s leading climate change panel is providing a platform, and in some cases actively pushing for a policy enforced by a dictatorship that hunts down mothers who become pregnant with their second child, abducts them off the street and takes them to government controlled hospitals where they are drugged and their baby is killed – all in the name of saving the planet.

New Eastern Outlook
by F. William Engdahl
Polio is something I have more than a passing acquaintance with. Two days before my fifth birthday a medical doctor in Minneapolis diagnosed me with polio. I only learned decades later that it was not polio, poliomyelitis or infantile paralysis as it was also called. It was shortly after World War II. Then a few years later we were presented Jonas Salk and the polio vaccine, and the world believed that because of that vaccine and the Sabin variant, polio had been stamped out. The reality was that polio was not and is not a “virus,” nor did the vaccines of Salk or Sabin eradicate.
The symptoms that were given the name “polio” had dramatically declined several years before the first vaccine and Salk claimed the credit for his vaccine which was released in 1955. The symptoms that got the name polio came from a team at the Rockefeller University in 1910. Those symptoms were listed as fever, severe headache, stiff neck and back, deep muscle pain. Pretty vague.
Many, many things can cause fever and such symptoms in a small child, for example being raped by someone they thought loved them or experiencing other trauma. It has been suggested that there was a major wave of in-family child rapes as soldiers returned from the traumas of their own war experiences in World War II. It was convenient for some to label the upsurge in such symptoms as polio and create a national media scare that was to most Americans in the early 1950’s more terrifying than Joe Stalin and communism. The drug industry got a huge boost and today, even newborns are jabbed multiple times in the first weeks of their fragile lives with concoctions that have been documented not to prevent viral infection but to make weak, sick and in some tragic cases autistic or even dead children.
The Rockefeller University in New York had begun literally playing around with children with the symptoms later formalized as polio as far back as 1910. Simon Flexner, first director of the predecessor to the Rockefeller University, the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research, had produced the symptoms later named polio. He did that in a rhesus monkey which then transmitted the disease from one animal to another. Flexner was a close friend and advisor of John D. Rockefeller, Jr., son of the founder of the Standard Oil trust.
Albert Sabin, creator of the Sabin polio vaccine had come out of the Rockefeller University. Human experiments with untested versions of the polio vaccines were done on already crippled children in care homes, on children in homes for the mentally insane and on that Rockefeller family plantation for human experiments, Puerto Rico.
Since that time the Rockefellers, some of the world’s most ardent financial backers of eugenics, have been at the center of the developments around what was named polio and its “vaccine.”
Eugenics was a fraudulent social theory that a “better society” could be created by eliminating “undesirable” human blood lines and promoting the desirable types like those of Rockefellers or DuPonts or their likes. To the present day eugenics is the guiding ideology of the very rich, loveless American oligarchs including Bill Gates and David Rockefeller. To this day the major financial backers of the criminal activities of the UN WHO (World Health Organization) and their fraudulent swine flu pandemic scares are the Rockefeller Foundation and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
Gates, GAVI and Murder Inc.
Several years ago, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the Rockefeller Foundation, along with the World Bank, UNICEF, the WHO and a group of pharmaceutical companies, united all in something called GAVI and set out to bring massive polio vaccination first to India. GAVI: The Vaccine Alliance was founded by the Gates Foundation in 2000 as a “public-private partnership” to unite in assaulting poorer developing countries with the Big Pharma vaccine industry they would otherwise be spared.
In India Gates, Rockefellers and WHO with their Big Pharma partners convinced the Indian government to spend some $8 billion of their scarce funds, along with a tiny amount of “seed” money from GAVI partners, to vaccinate Indian children.
An article in the Indian Journal of Medical Ethics in 2012 concluded, “In 2011, there were an extra 47,500 new cases of NPAFP. Clinically indistinguishable from polio paralysis but twice as deadly, the incidence of NPAFP was directly proportional to doses of oral polio received. Though this data was collected within the polio surveillance system, it was not investigated.” Instead, Gates and Company proclaimed India “polio” free.
They ignored the fact their “polio” vaccines were killing and paralyzing 48,000 Indian children because the WHO definition of polio allowed them the casuistry. NPAFP stands for Non-Polio Acute Flaccid Paralysis. The medical-industrial complex are masters at coming up with names.
By calling it non-polio, they defined polio as eradicated in India. But their vaccines are killing and paralyzing tens of thousands of children. So by the WHO semantics the GAVI vaccines did not caused a single case of “polio.” It did cause 48,000 cases of something far deadlier and more damaging, Acute Flaccid Paralysis, a condition the WHO admits is clinically indistinguishable from polio and which occurred in direct proportion to the doses of polio vaccine received.
A similar phenomenon took place at the same time in neighboring Pakistan. In 2011 the Paktstan Tribune reported, “A government inquiry has found that polio vaccines for infants funded by the Global Alliance for Vaccination and Immunisation are causing deaths and disabilities in regional countries including Pakistan. Geneva-based officials of GAVI, Jeffrey Rowland and Dan Thomas, were contacted by e-mail but they did not respond. “ GAVI spent a mere 7.8% of the total cost of the mass vaccination in Pakistan, of Rs26 billion. The Tribune continued, “Pakistan will be spending Rs24.2 billion from its own resources on the purchase of new and under-used vaccines at much higher cost as compared to their equivalent vaccines.” The Gates-Rockefeller-WHO polio vaccination program in Pakistan killed an estimated 10,000 and crippled tens of thousands more.
Now the focus has moved to another US warzone, Syria.
Polio in Syria?
For two decades Syria has been polio-free. Now, beginning 2013 in the wake of their criminal efforts in Pakistan and India, the WHO has declared the presence of polio outbreaks in Syria and accused President Assad of refusing vaccine teams – the previous ones in Pakistan, laced with CIA agents.
The “polio” spreading in war-ravaged Syria, where the CIA and Pentagon and their assets such as ISIS and CIA-funded opposition have destroyed homes and driven millions into refugee status, is vaccine-caused, just as in India and just as in Pakistan. The polio spreading through Syria is “vaccine-derived polio,” specifically, the same strain of “non-polio acute flaccid paralysis” as in India and Pakistan that coincided with the mass vaccinations with Sabin oral vaccines by GAVI. The vaccine originated from the oral polio vaccine developed by former Rockefeller University researched, Sabin, which contains an attenuated vaccine-virus or active polio virus along with unknown adjuvants or boosters the drug companies prefer not to reveal.
Kindah al-Shammat, Syrian Minister of Social Affairs, said at the time that, “The virus originates in Pakistan and has been brought to Syria by the jihadists who come from Pakistan.”
WHO Rockefeller Tetanus abortions
If this sounds improbable take a close look at a recent expose by a concerned group of Kenyan doctors about a vaccine developed by WHO in conjunction with the Rockefeller and Gates foundations. The Kenya Catholic Doctors Association discovered an antigen that causes miscarriages in a tetanus vaccine that is being administered to 2.3 million girls and women by the World Health Organization and UNICEF. Since 1972 the Rockefeller Foundation has worked in secrecy with the WHO and various pharmaceutical companies to fund a WHO program in “reproductive health.” There they developed an innovative tetanus vaccine.
In the early 1990’s, according to a report from the Global Vaccine Institute, the WHO oversaw massive vaccination campaigns against tetanus in Nicaragua, Mexico and the Philippines. Comite Pro Vida de Mexico, a Roman Catholic lay organization, became suspicious of the motives behind the WHO program. When they tested numerous vials of the vaccine they, like in Kenya today, found they contained the same Human Chorionic Gonadotrophin, or HCG. They found that to be very curious in a vaccine designed to protect people against lock-jaw arising from infection with rusty nail wounds. Tetanus is also rather rare, so why a mass vaccination campaign and that for only women of child-bearing age?
HCG is a natural hormone needed to maintain a pregnancy. However, when combined with a tetanus toxoid carrier, it stimulated the formation of antibodies against HCG, rendering a woman incapable of maintaining a pregnancy, a form of concealed abortion.
The pattern is clear. The global agenda of Rockefellers, Gates, Clintons, Bushes and their very rich loveless friends is racist. It calls for elimination of non-white populations, genocide. Their tools of choice include wars everywhere from Afghanistan to Pakistan to Libya to Syria to Ukraine. It includes campaigns of massive select vaccinations in war-torn countries. It includes setting the CIA and Mossad to the job of creating fake Islamic “jihadist” terrorists to kill and main and create the cover for a Washington “war on terror.” Their only problem of late is that these strategies are failing. That’s bad news for the paranoid oligarchs, good news for sane remnants of the human race, human beings.

The New American
by Alex Newman
Learning to speak Chinese may be a really good investment.
In 2009, billionaire financier and establishment powerbroker George Soros called for the communist regime ruling mainland China to “own” what he referred to as the “New World Order.” In 2015, it has become clear that Beijing is stepping up to the plate as its agents infiltrate the full architecture of existing “global governance” institutions, even while adding their own totalitarian-minded tentacles to it. And despite the effort to portray near-bankrupt Western governments as helpless and confused spectators in the whole process, the globalist European and American establishment’s fingerprints are all over the rise of the Chinese Communist autocrats, and the accompanying decline of the West.
Among other concerns expressed by analysts and officials is the fact that operatives for the ruthless Chinese dictatorship are quietly burrowing their way to the top of existing so-called “global governance” institutions. Multiple United Nations agencies, for example, are now under the leadership of Beijing’s agents — not to mention Communist China seizing control in 1971 over a veto-wielding seat on the UN Security Council, which purports to have the ability to deploy UN military forces under various guises. Despite its unparalleled record of mass-murder, persecution, and tyranny, Beijing even has a seat on the widely ridiculed UN “Human Rights” Council.
However, Communist Chinese influence extends even deeper into the dictator-dominated planetary outfit. Among the UN agencies under the leadership of Beijing’s operatives is the little-known and UN Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), which last year selected Chinese Communist Li Yong, the regime’s former “vice-minister of finance,” as executive director. “[The regime ruling] China will inevitably need to be given more rights in international activities, such as the right to participate and the right to have a voice in international affairs,” Li was quoted as saying by regime-controlled propaganda outlets.
Even more troubling, perhaps, is the Communist Chinese agent, Houlin Zhao, selected last year to lead the UN International Telecommunications Union (ITU). For years, the UN agency and its mostly autocratic member regimes have been working to usurp control over the Internet. And as if having a Communist Chinese operative whose bosses run a totalitarian censorship regime dubbed the “Great Firewall of China” was not troubling enough, Zhao’s comments raised even more alarm worldwide. “We [at the ITU] don’t have a common interpretation of what censorship means,” the agency chief was quoted as saying by the Korean Yonhap news agency.
Other senior UN figures loyal to the Communist Chinese regime include Margaret Chan, the director-general of the UN World Health Organization. The WHO, of course, has been attempting to usurp increasingly draconian powers over humanity under the guise of “health” on everything from global tobacco taxes and quarantine powers to a planetary “mental health” regime. Last year in Western Africa, citing the Ebola outbreak, Chan claimed “global health authorities” would need to help impose “new measures such as deploying soldiers to quarantine stricken neighborhoods in Sierra Leone,” the Wall Street Journal reported.
As The New American reported from Rio de Janeiro in 2012, meanwhile, the global tyranny-promoting UN Conference on Sustainable Development was chaired by notorious anti-American Chinese Communist Sha Zukang. In addition to openly expressing his hatred of America, the Secretary General of the Rio+20 summit had presented an award to the Chinese general responsible for massacring student protesters at Tiananmen Square. The most recent General Conference of the UN Education, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), which is seeking to impose global “education standards” on humanity, was chaired by former Beijing “education vice-minister” Hao Ping.
That is all just the beginning of Beijing’s long-term plan to accumulate power within the UN, according to the dictatorship itself. In a so-called “blue book” published recently by the regime’s China Institute of International Studies (CIIS), Beijing’s Foreign Ministry said “China will target a bigger role in international affairs after recent successes in global diplomacy,” the Xinhua propaganda and espionage agency reported on April 2. Senior regime officials have been boasting for months that Beijing is training up an army of staffers to infiltrate UN agencies and other “global governance” mechanisms.
When it comes to “global economic governance,” the communist regime has been even bolder. For years, Beijing has been lobbying for a “de-Americanized” so-called “New World Order” in which it would have, among other powers, far more influence over institutions such as the International Monetary Fund. More than a few supposed U.S. allies, and even the Obama administration, have jumped onboard the bandwagon to give the totalitarian regime, along with the Kremlin, a greater leadership role at the IMF at U.S. expense. The only obstacle now is a U.S. Congress that refuses to sign off on the scheme, but is under major globalist pressure to submit.
Top Communist Chinese officials and central bankers have long been pushing for the IMF to unveil a truly planetary currency to replace the U.S. dollar as the global reserve. “A super-sovereign reserve currency not only eliminates the inherent risks of credit-based sovereign currency, but also makes it possible to manage global liquidity,” wrote Chinese central-bank boss Zhou Xiaochuan in his public paper calling for a world currency run by the IMF. Communist Chinese operatives are already hard at work within the institution, including, for example, IMF Deputy Managing Director Zhu Min, a former top official at the Chinese regime’s central bank. Now the IMF’s current boss openly says its headquarters may be moved from D.C. to Beijing.
In addition to seizing more and more control of existing institutions — all at U.S. expense, and with support from Obama — Beijing has been creating a dizzying array of its own outfits to plug into the new “multi-polar” world order it says it is seeking. Most recently, even traditional U.S. allies rushed to join the Shanghai-based Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB), giving the United States what the establishment press painted as a “black eye.” Before that, the communist- and socialist-minded regimes ruling the BRICS — Brazil, Russia, Indian, China, and South Africa — unveiled plans for a new international “development” bank. They also called for an IMF-run global currency regime and further centralization of “global governance” at the UN.
Last year, in its China Monitor publication, the Mercator Institute for China Studies (MERICS) highlighted Beijing’s “shadow” network of globalist outfits. The report noted that (contrary to the claims of analysts who portray the scheming as a “challenge” to existing globalist institutions) the communist regime “is not seeking to demolish or exit from current international organizations.” Instead, it “is constructing supplementary — in part complementary, in part competitive — channels for shaping the international order beyond Western claims to leadership.” It cited the BRICS, the AIIB, the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, and numerous other examples.
In a column about China’s “New World Order,” meanwhile, Director Lee Jong-Wha at Korea University’s Asiatic Research Institute observed that Beijing was “using its growing clout to reshape global economic governance.” Despite apparent obliviousness to the danger of having a mass-murdering dictatorship help design a system of “global governance,” Lee, who also led the Office of Regional Economic Integration at the Asian Development Bank, noted that “China’s approach to influencing global governance is only beginning to emerge.” The dictatorship has openly stated as much.
Of course, the regime ruling mainland China has murdered more human beings than any entity in all of recorded human history. It continues to slaughter millions of unborn children in forced abortions — part of its savage “one-child policy” — with funding from U.S. taxpayers and assistance from the UN Population Fund and Planned Parenthood, according to congressional testimony by experts. It ruthlessly persecutes Christians and other minorities, as well as anyone and everyone who dares to challenge its tyranny. The regime even harvests body organs from political prisoners and religious dissidents. And despite claims that it is becoming “capitalist,” the facts and the regime itself say otherwise — consider that virtually all of its major “companies” are owned and run by the regime.
Yet, Beijing continues to enjoy the unabashed support of the highest echelons of the globalist Western establishment — going back to the communist takeover of mainland China indirectly aided by U.S. and Western policies, to Bill Clinton’s handover of the most sensitive U.S. military technology, all the way through to today’s actions by Obama. “[T]he West has failed to accord China — not to mention the other major emerging economies — the degree of influence in today’s global governance structures that it merits,” argued globalist Javier Solana, the former Secretary-General of NATO and “EU High Representative for Foreign and Security Policy.” “This may be about to change.”
Throughout the piece, Solana also chastises the West for not giving the murderous regime in Beijing even more control over “global governance.” He also calls repeatedly on “advanced countries” to “overcome their strategic mistrust of China.” “The West must still do more not only to welcome China to the table of global governance, but also to accept and cooperate with the institutions that the Chinese are now creating,” the former NATO boss continued. “China’s move into multilateral processes is good news for the world.”
At least one prominent American expert on the subject, China-focused policy and intelligence analyst Michael Pillsbury who worked for numerous U.S. administrations, argued in a recent book that Western leaders have merely been deceived. According to Pillsbury’s analysis, Beijing has been operating under a secret long-term plot launched by Mao Zedong to eventually replace the U.S.-led world with “a Chinese communist-dominated economic and political system,” as the scheming was summarized in the Washington Free Beacon.
Essentially, Pillsbury argues that successive U.S. administrations have merely been duped into supporting the plot by, for instance, offering Beijing “most-favored nation” trade status after it slaughtered peaceful protesters. Under his view, globalist Henry “New World Order” Kissinger, who regularly calls for “convergence” between East and West in a new system of “World Order” and who was crucial in “opening up” China to the West, was merely played for a fool by Machiavellian Communist Chinese generals.
However, plenty of evidence suggests that the Western world’s decline and Communist China’s rise has been deliberately aided by the globalist establishment in the United States and Europe. In a 1973 op-ed in the New York Times, for example, senior globalist architect David Rockefeller actually celebrated the mass-murdering regime after a trip to China. “Whatever the price of the Chinese Revolution, it has obviously succeeded not only in producing more efficient and dedicated administration, but also in fostering high morale and community of purpose,” he claimed, seemingly oblivious to the ghoulishness of his words. “The social experiment in China under Chairman Mao’s leadership is one of the most important and successful in human history.” The banking magnate neglected to mention that it also resulted in the murder of an estimated 60 million to 100 million innocent people — not including the unborn slaughtered in forced abortions — and the enslavement of many more.
More recently, the globalist establishment has become even more open about the end-game. Rothschild dynasty-backed billionaire financier George Soros, for example, one of Obama’s most important backers, even put it explicitly, saying Communist China should “own” the “New World Order” in the same way the United States owns the fast-declining current world order. “I think you need a New World Order, that China has to be part of the process of creating it and they have to buy in, they have to own it in the same way as the United States owns … the current order,” Soros told the Financial Times in 2009 when asked what Obama ought to discuss with the regime on his visit to Beijing.
Since then, for the first time in history, the Obama administration has invited Communist Chinese troops on to U.S. soil for an “exchange” mission. When Obama’s Treasury secretary was asked about the communist regime’s proposal to dethrone the U.S. dollar in favor of a global currency, he said “we’re actually quite open to that.” Beijing-owned “companies,” meanwhile, continue to gobble up strategic U.S. assets ranging from cinema chains affecting Hollywood to American banks and everything in between. Last year, the immensely influential cabal of globalists who attend the annual Bilderberg meeting even invited a member of Communist Party of China’s Central Committee — and it was not the first time top Chinese Communists have attended.
As Communist China’s brutal autocrats begin to wield more and more control over “global governance,” what might the “New World Order” they admit they are building look like? More than a few hints have been offered in official declarations issued by the regime and its allies. Last year, for instance, Beijing and more than 130 Third World governments and dictators, with open support from UN boss Ban Ki-moon, signed a declaration calling for a “New World Order to Live Well.” Even a cursory review of the document, though, would reveal that the only ones who will be living well under such a nightmarish vision — global government, planetary wealth redistribution, and full-blown tyranny — will be the cutthroats who end up on top of the power structure. Beijing’s flagrant attacks on the God-given rights enshrined in the U.S. Constitution should also serve a warning.
Already, with Beijing’s strong backing, the UN is on the verge of becoming a dictator-dominated global government, and the IMF is openly being groomed to serve as the planetary central bank. If liberty and Western civilization are to survive, the brakes must be slammed on the plot — and soon. Whistleblowers from within the UN system who have spoken to The New American about the issue argue that a U.S. withdrawal from the UN and the broader emerging “global governance” regime is not enough. Instead, the UN and its tentacles must be entirely abolished.
Still, even simply cutting off U.S. taxpayer funding and U.S. government support for the UN, the IMF, and various other organizations would go a long way toward reducing the threat. Ending the U.S. government’s suicidal policies toward Beijing — borrowing trillions of dollars from it just to stay afloat, for example, or turning a blind eye to the communist regime’s massive espionage apparatus aimed at the United States — will be important as well. Americans concerned about the danger must get educated, organized, and activated before a Communist Chinese-dominated “New World Order” becomes a reality while liberty and sovereignty disappear.
The Common Sense Show
by Dave Hodges
This article has two major purposes: (1) To establish how massively the American people have been lied to with regard to the depth and breadth of the Jade Helm 15 (JH 15) exercises; and, (2) To force the JH 15 planners to keep from letting the drill go live due to the massive public exposure that this article and articles such as this, will bring to the attention of the public.
Shining the Light Upon the Cockroaches
When a cockroach has a light shined upon it, it abandons its mission and runs for cover. In research, we often refer to research subjects changing their behavior as the “observer effect (AKA the Hawthorne Effect)”. It is in this spirit, the American people need to know how massively the JH 15 planners are lying about their size and scope of their operation.
Jade Helm 15 is not a seven state operation as first advertised. This was a massive lie.
Then we discovered a massive extraction of dissidents drill in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. and the drill had expanded to 9 states. This was yet another lie. And why would it be necessary to use the military to “extract” American civilians”?
In the past 48 hours, I have received multiple communications from Michigan regarding the call up of the National Guard to active duty status beginning on July 15, 2015.
I spoke to a national guard members brother today, who is in the same platoon. He says the two month long training is for the use of what he called strykers (his spelling) which he says is similar to a tank but is completely sealed from the outside, and is capable of being used in chemical and radioactive situations as well as being outfitted with a 50 cal. machine gun
My cousin is in the Michigan National Guard. He is being called to active duty on July 15. Doesn’t that correspond to the formal beginning of Jade 15. He said that the drill are going to take place in No. Michigan and it involves the relocation of large populations from imminent danger. Love your show, keep up the good work!
My neighbor told me he will be drilling in some disaster drill for the Michigan National Guard this summer on July 15. I would bet that this part of Jade Helm. He is an operations officer and he said one thing was very curious. They were told to be prepared to work with foreign troops from several countries.He also said that an UN observer will be assigned to each unit.
When someone is caught massively and repeatedly lying about something, isn’t it usually done to conceal a dark truth?
Jade Helm 15 is clearly a national extraction and martial law drill. It is not in 7 states, or 9 states, this drill is a national drill.
A very disturbing revelation by Steve Quayle
Steve Quayle appeared on the Alex Jones Show on April 1, 2015 and revealed the fact that Bill Ayers, former head of the Weathermen Underground had told former FBI special informant, Larry Grathwohl who penetrated the Weathermen, about how Ayers planned to exterminate tens of millions of American in re-education camps located in the American Southwest. Subsequently, two decades later, Ayers launched Obama’s political career from his Chicago home. Ayers, the convicted felon, still visits the White House and meets with Obama in the modern era.
As soon as Steve Quayle appeared on Alex’s show, I began to receive a few emails ridiculing Steve’s message in order to undermine the potency of the message and thus, impact the public perception of Jade Helm 15 as a dissident extraction drill. I can tell from these messages that our message, emanating from the Independent Media is highly effective in waking people up. What these disinformation warriors were not aware of is that I had interviewed Larry Grathwohl three times and knew him well.
Dave Hodges Interviews Larry Grathwohl
In the following interview I conducted with Larry Grathwohl, on April 28, 2013 and shortly before his untimely and suspicious death, Larry revealed the intimate secrets of Obama’s rise to political fame which was backed by Bill Ayers, the felon who wants to murder tens of millions of Americans after the communist take over.
Lending more credibility to the Steve Quayle account is the existence of a tape in which Larry Grathwohl reveals in his book the same scenario. I first aired this video two years ago. I re-aired the interview this week.
Could it be any clearer, that with regard to JH-15, Americans have a lot to worry about? Of course there are those who will defend Obama by saying that this association with a man who promotes genocide against the American people, does not necessarily prove that Obama endorses Bill Ayers genocidal fantasies. However, to hold to such a belief we would have to ignore the following pieces of legislative action and executive orders that are endorsed by Obama.
Executive Order 13603 which, among other concerning things, endorses Obama’s unilateral ability to enact a civilian inmate slave labor program.
Army Resettlement/Internment document, FM3-39.4 which states Americans (Second Amendment supporters, former Ron Paul supporters, pro-life supporters, Constitutionalists, etc.), are some of the targets for forced incarceration into what is euphemistically called a FEMA camp.
The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) allows Obama to indefinitely detain Americans without due process of law.
Still don’t think that Ayers is not having a moment of dark influence over this Presidency?
There is no appropriate and accurate conclusion to this article. In fact, to dovetail to Larry Grathwohl’s work and Steve Quayle’s investigation into Obama’s dastardly communist connections, I am publishing a detailed analysis of Obama’s clear communist background and leanings. The results will be published soon.

It appears as if oil prices could be on the verge of a rebound, with new data showing that the U.S. oil patch is hitting an inflection point. While specific shale regions – such as North Dakota’s Bakken and Texas’ Eagle Ford – have posted production declines, overall U.S. oil output managed to edge up in recent months.
But now that U.S. production has finally dipped, it may augur a new phase for oil markets in which production cutbacks could lead to higher prices. The Energy Information Administration reported on April 1 that total U.S. oil production fell for the week ending on March 27, falling 36,000 barrels per day to 9.38 million barrels per day.
The prior week’s production level of 9.42 million barrels per day was the highest level in three decades. If output continues to decline, mid-March 2015 could mark the peak of U.S. oil output, at least for the foreseeable future.
That would raise the possibility that oil prices have bottomed out. Where do they go from here? Is it possible that oil prices could dip any lower? If they are indeed about to rise, will they rise quickly or stay flat for a while before gradually ascending?
There are several major determinants of oil prices one should consider.
1. U.S. Production. The first and most important thing to watch is the aforementioned levels of U.S. production. Weekly figures come out from the EIA and we should get a better sense of where U.S. oil flows are going next week. Consistent weekly drops will put upward pressure on prices.
2. Iran Negotiations. In the very short-term, a lot depends on the outcomes of the Iranian negotiations. A breakthrough in negotiations on April 2nd sent oil prices down immediately but this will likely only be temporary. Oil prices will again correct themselves once the markets realize that Iranian oil won’t begin flowing overnight, as there are still several months before a final accord is signed and even more time before the U.N. Nuclear Agency confirms compliance. Still, over the long-term, new Iranian oil will keep prices from rising too much. On the flip side, a breakdown in the ongoing talks between now and June will raise geopolitical tension and ensure Iranian crude stays on the sidelines, resulting in higher oil prices.
3. Credit Crunch. Another significant development is the reevaluation of credit lines for distressed oil drillers. Banks typically readjust their credit facilities for oil and gas companies in April and October. With the onset of April, smaller oil producers will find that their assets are no longer worth what they once were in the eyes of their creditors. That will lead to a large cutback in credit as oil firms become unqualified for generous lending. As a result, junk oil firms could face a liquidity crisis as they run out of cash, pushing some into bankruptcy. Quicksilver Resources filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in March. Oklahoma-based Samson Resources hinted on March 31 that it may do the same. Bankruptcies could pick up pace in the next few weeks, and the quicker it happens, the quicker the supply side of the oil equation will begin to balance out, which will eventually push up oil prices.
4. Oil storage. Fears have arisen that oil storage is running out. Indeed, oil diverted into storage has skyrocketed, and key hubs have seen their storage tanks filling up rather quickly. More than 77 percent of storage capacity is used up in Cushing, Oklahoma. Yet with production slowing and a much improved pipeline network, storage will probably not reach its limits. Once that becomes apparent, investors will shed their fears and bid up oil prices.
5. Oil Demand. Demand is starting to look stronger as well. U.S. drivers drove a record amount of miles for the month of January, capitalizing on lower gasoline prices. Major U.S. oil refineries are also taking advantage of the glut. Normally a time for spring maintenance, refineries processed 15.7 million barrels per day for the week ending on March 27, a record level for this time of year. As we move through spring and summer approaches, refineries will ramp up processing even further, providing a lift to demand.
6. The Fed. Another influential development on oil prices will be the next moves by the U.S. Federal Reserve. The Fed is expected to raise interest rates, but a specific timeline is unknown. If and when interest rates rise, there will be two effects. First the dollar will appreciate, pushing down oil prices. At the same time, higher interest rates will raise the cost of capital for oil producers, potentially cutting into marginal oil production. The possible termination of cheap money could spell an end to a lot of oil production, although this would likely take place over time. It is hard to say how these two countervailing forces ultimately shake out. In the immediate aftermath at least, a stronger dollar will prevail, causing oil prices to sink.
7. China. As with most things in the energy world, a lot hinges on China. China has been taking advantage of collapsed prices by stepping up its purchases of oil to fill its strategic petroleum reserve (SPR). That provided a bit of a demand boost in recent months, putting a floor beneath prices. But now China’s SPR is nearly full, so its imports could plateau for a while. Lower oil demand – or at least demand not growing as fast as expected – will keep oil prices from rising too much.

How many authors could title their book simply World Order without sounding utterly presumptuous? Henry Kissinger still plays in a league of his own. For admirers and critics alike, he is more than just a former U.S. secretary of state and previous national security adviser. Some see him as the quintessential wise man of U.S. foreign policy; others, as a diehard realpolitiker hanging on to yesterday’s world; and still others, as a perennial bête noire. To all, he remains larger than life. And regardless of how one views Kissinger, his new book is tremendously valuable.
To call World Order timely would be an understatement, for if there was one thing the world yearned for in 2014, it was order. In the Middle East, the Syrian civil war has killed hundreds of thousands and allowed jihadist groups to threaten the stability of the entire region. In Asia, an economically resurgent China has grown more assertive, stoking anxiety among its neighbors. In West Africa, the Ebola pandemic has nearly shut down several states. And even Europe, the most rule-bound and institutionalized part of the world, has seen its cherished liberal norms come under direct assault as Russian President Vladimir Putin reclaimed military aggression as an instrument of state policy.
Even more ominous, the traditional guardians of global order seem to have become reluctant to defend it. Following long, costly wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, the United States and other Western powers are suffering from intervention fatigue, preferring instead to focus on domestic concerns. And the rising powers have so far proved either unwilling or unable to safeguard international stability.
Enter Kissinger. A strategist and historian by training, he takes the long view. The core of the book is his exploration of different interpretations of the idea of world order and competing approaches to constructing it. Kissinger opens the book by defining the term “world order” as “the concept held by a region or civilization about the nature of just arrangements and the distribution of power thought to be applicable to the entire world.” As he is quick to point out, any system of this kind rests on two components: “a set of commonly accepted rules that define the limits of permissible action and a balance of power that enforces restraint where rules break down, preventing one political unit from subjugating all others.”
Kissinger’s world, it turns out, is not just about power derived from economic wealth and military might but also about the power of ideas—although for him, the ideas that matter most are those of the powerful. In his view, traditional notions such as sovereignty and noninterference still reign supreme, having buttressed the international system for almost four centuries. Today that system is very much in flux, however, as powerful actors promote alternative ways to order it, from theocracy to autocratic capitalism to borderless postmodernity. But only the prevailing structure, Kissinger argues, fulfills the two main objectives of world order: legitimacy and a balance of power. Among the book’s many messages, then, perhaps the clearest of all is a warning: do not dispose of an organizing principle if there exists no ready alternative that promises to be just as effective.
For Kissinger, today’s international system owes its overall resilience to the astuteness of seventeenth-century European statesmen. The modern state system emerged in 1648 after a century of sectarian conflict, when the bitter Thirty Years’ War brought together representatives of the European powers to establish the Peace of Westphalia. The treaties they concluded codified the idea of sovereign states as the building blocks of international order. A century and a half later, at the Congress of Vienna, in 1814–15, diplomats such as the French envoy Talleyrand and the Austrian foreign minister Klemens von Metternich explicitly spelled out the principle of balance of power as a way of managing the international system. In recounting these events, Kissinger is on his home turf. Although some contemporary historians and political scientists might object to his idealization of Westphalian institutions, one of Kissinger’s gifts is a knack for revealing the relevance of historic structures to present-day politics.
There are limitations to that exercise, of course: Western ideas about states and politics have been foisted on other regions ever since colonial times, and they still compete with other, older visions of order and power that cannot be ignored. This is particularly true in the Middle East. Thus, the book examines the enduring impact of the Shiite-Sunni schism on the contemporary Muslim world and the emergence of secular states there after the Westphalian system expanded beyond Europe. Today, the regional order—still composed of European-style nation-states—is threatened by transnational political Islam, in the form of both political movements such as the Muslim Brotherhood and jihadist groups such as al Qaeda and the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham, or ISIS. The latter’s rise illustrates a new danger, according to Kissinger: a “disintegration of statehood into tribal and sectarian units” that risks tipping the region into “a confrontation akin to—but broader than—Europe’s pre-Westphalian wars of religion.”
Kissinger’s survey of the Middle East also takes in the relationship between the United States and Iran, a rivalry that pits the putative guardian of the liberal world order against a state that has deliberately placed itself outside of that system. Kissinger traces the tradition of Iranian statecraft back to the Persian empire, emphasizing how Iran has always aspired to be more than just a normal state in the Westphalian sense, struggling to “decide whether it is a country or a cause.” This tradition heavily influences multilateral negotiations over Iran’s nuclear program. Kissinger suggests that the United States should foster cooperative relations with Iran based on the principle of nonintervention. Where constructive diplomacy is not enough, however, the United States should employ balance-of-power politics to cajole Iran into cooperation, using alliances with the region’s Sunni powers as leverage. The outcome of Washington’s current attempt at rapprochement with Tehran might determine “whether Iran pursues the path of revolutionary Islam or that of a great nation legitimately and importantly lodged in the Westphalian system of states.”
Asia is another region where Western concepts of world order have long competed with indigenous visions. Even the very idea of an Asian region is itself something of a Western import: prior to the arrival of modern Western powers in the fifteenth century, none of the region’s many languages had a word for Asia, and their speakers shared little sense of belonging to a single continent. Kissinger pays particular attention to China and goes to great lengths to distill the traditional Chinese worldview, which posited that the country was not one power center among many but the “sole sovereign government of the world,” where the Chinese emperor ruled over “all under heaven.” According to Kissinger, the rise of China in the twenty-first century comes with refrains of these traditional views, as Beijing searches for a synthesis between its ancient tradition and its new role “as a contemporary great power on the Westphalian model.” He warns that China and the United States hold incompatible views on democracy and human rights but stresses that the two countries share a common interest in avoiding conflict. Indeed, World Order suggests that U.S.-Chinese relations may be less risky than China’s relations with its Asian neighbors. East Asia, he reminds readers, is a region where “nearly every country considers itself to be ‘rising,’ driving disagreements to the edge of confrontation.”
RULES OF ENGAGEMENT
Kissinger is at his most interesting when considering the country he knows best: the United States. World Order offers some pointed commentary on the current debate in Washington over the United States’ proper role in the world. But Kissinger is no mere pundit, and his analysis rests on a deep exploration of two competing strands of thought that have historically shaped U.S. foreign policy: the pragmatic realism of President Theodore Roosevelt and the liberal idealism of President Woodrow Wilson.
Although Kissinger sometimes couches his views in abstract terms, it is easy to comprehend what he thinks of President Barack Obama’s critics, who blame the president for not offering enough leadership. Pointing to a number of wars with far-reaching goals that the United States first waged and then had to abandon midstream, Kissinger does not hide his skepticism over idealistic enterprises that fail to recognize the limits of U.S. power, leading to disappointments, if not full-fledged foreign policy disasters. “Critics will ascribe these setbacks to the deficiencies, moral and intellectual, of America’s leaders,” he writes. “Historians will probably conclude that they derived from the inability to resolve an ambivalence about force and diplomacy, realism and idealism, power and legitimacy, cutting across the entire society.”
Even though Kissinger strongly takes the side of restraint in the ongoing tug of war between the Rooseveltian and Wilsonian impulses in U.S. foreign policy, he acknowledges the important role that liberal values play, too. “America would not be true to itself if it abandoned this essential idealism,” he writes. And although he recognizes Washington’s special role as a defender of Western norms, Kissinger also emphasizes that “world order cannot be achieved by any one country acting alone.” The European powers remain the United States’ most natural partners, and Kissinger stresses that they all are best served when they cultivate their relationship, working not only to maximize the overall level of Western influence in world affairs but also to restrain one another’s worst impulses.
Kissinger is certainly right to warn of the excessive self-righteousness that democracies sometimes demonstrate. But he is perhaps too skeptical of some more recent forms of liberal internationalism. He argues, for example, that the “responsibility to protect” doctrine—which holds that a state forfeits its sovereign right to noninterference if it fails to protect its population from mass atrocities, requiring the international community to act on this population’s behalf—could destabilize the international system. But liberal societies devised this principle in order to prevent ruthless leaders from manipulating and making a mockery of Westphalian norms in their efforts to escape punishment for abusing their own people. On balance, applying the doctrine properly would do more to protect the liberal order than to undermine it.
Although he might take issue with such thinking, Kissinger acknowledges that it will become increasingly difficult for Western democracies to pursue policies that undercut their basic commitment to liberal values. And he points out that long-term stability based on oppression is an illusion, as the Arab revolts of 2011 demonstrated. The coming decades will see plenty of argument over this basic dilemma, as Western powers weigh how much liberalism is too much—or too little.
A WHOLE NEW WORLD?
As far as Kissinger is concerned, nation-states are still the main players in the international system. Neither international institutions nor nonstate actors play an important role in his book. In this view, not all that much has changed since 1814, when the European powers convened in Vienna to forge a sustainable system that, minor outbreaks of violence aside, preserved peace on the continent for a century. Nor is today much different from 1914, when the same major powers drove Europe over the cliff, unleashing a major war that became the first truly global conflict. Kissinger’s notes of caution, repeated throughout the book, serve as a warning for those who think that humanity has nearly overcome the old patterns of power politics and state rivalry.
That message is particularly pertinent for the EU, whose most enthusiastic cheerleaders promote it as the vanguard of a borderless, post-Westphalian world. The EU has without a doubt fundamentally transformed Europe: rising right-wing nationalism notwithstanding, young people in EU states tend to identify with both their home countries and the union as a whole. However, it would be imprudent and dangerous to expect the rest of the world to eagerly follow Europe’s lead. Although regional integration projects are advancing elsewhere, the breadth and depth of the European experience may remain unique. Europe, the birthplace of the Westphalian model, might be ready to move on. But the rest of the world isn’t—and, Kissinger argues, that’s for the best. As he puts it, “Westphalian principles are, at this writing, the sole generally recognized basis of what exists of a world order.”
But Kissinger is fully aware that the international system is influenced by factors other than great-power politics and that there are other powerful sources of order and disorder—most notably the global economy, the environment, and technological change. However, some of these factors take a secondary role in Kissinger’s work.
The broad reach of globalization and the resulting degree of complex interdependence come with new challenges. For instance, the spread of capitalism and free trade has lifted millions out of poverty but has also generated unsustainable degrees of inequality. And the economic interdependence produced by globalization acts as both a stabilizing and a disruptive force, encouraging growth but also expanding the reach of economic shocks. Such interdependence has changed the politics of coercion, as Western states now commonly use their economic power to force other countries to comply with international rules. This strategy might not always produce good results, but it has brought Iran back to the negotiating table and remains the only option the West has available for pressuring Russia to change course in Ukraine.
World order will also be subject to climate change, a phenomenon that is largely man-made but that lies outside policymakers’ control. It is too late to prevent climate change from affecting the lives of billions of people—a fact that can cut both ways when it comes to global stability. An environmental catastrophe could bring the world together, just as the devastation of World War II compelled countries to forge a more durable international system, create the United Nations, and establish the Bretton Woods institutions, which have functioned fairly well since 1944. Alternatively, a climate crisis could magnify existing tensions, undermine global governance, and further erode the capacity of weak states to responsibly administer their own territories.
When it comes to technological change, it is obvious that Kissinger does not feel completely comfortable in this brave new world. He recognizes that the Internet has enabled many of the contemporary era’s great achievements, but he faults it for giving rise to a less substantive, more cursory way of thinking about the world’s true complexity. “Knowledge of history and geography is not essential for those who can evoke their data with the touch of a button,” Kissinger writes. “The mindset for walking lonely political paths may not be self-evident to those who seek confirmation by hundreds, sometimes thousands of friends on Facebook.” He likens today’s digital optimists—those who believe that cyberspace can solve the world’s most pressing problems—to the naive Wilsonian idealists of a century ago.
Younger analysts tend to have a different view, of course. And although Kissinger’s skepticism is well intentioned and not unjustified, it is indisputable that new technologies have already fundamentally changed the practice of diplomacy and statesmanship. Today’s diplomats must be prepared to speak to a global audience and to constantly contend with an international media circus. They must be both hard-nosed negotiators and global communicators: tweeting Talleyrands, ready to defend their interests in the real world and the virtual world alike. Most notably, recent cyberattacks and hybrid warfare have demonstrated that cyberspace has already become a battlefield on which familiar concepts such as deterrence and even defense need to be defined anew.
Kissinger’s secret wish might be to stage a Congress of Vienna for the twenty-first century. And although world politics is complicated by a host of factors that don’t fit easily into the Westphalian model—transnational identities, digital hyperconnectivity, weapons of mass destruction, global terrorist networks—Kissinger is still right to insist that the management of great-power relations remains of paramount importance. Indeed, there should not need to be another Thirty Years’ War to provide the impetus for a new Westphalian peace and a world order that is at once legitimate and reflective of the new geopolitical realities. Kissinger’s book is a gift to all of those who care about global order and seek to stave off conflict in the twenty-first century. No one else could have produced this masterpiece.
The Common Sense Show
by Dave Hodges
During a commercial break on The Common Sense Show in February of 2015, Deborah Tavares told me that I really should go see the move, The Kingsman, because there are so many elements present in this movie which show us where so much of our technology is headed.
Gary “Eggsy” Unwin (Taron Egerton), whose late father secretly worked for a spy organization, lives in a South London housing estate and seems headed for a life behind bars. However, dapper agent Harry Hart (Colin Firth) recognizes potential in the youth and recruits him to be a trainee in the secret service.
Meanwhile, the villainous Richmond Valentine (Samuel L. Jackson) , who masquerades as a philanthropist, launches a diabolical plan to solve the problem of climate change via a worldwide killing spree resulting in extreme depopulation.
Controlling the Leadership of the Planet
There are two important New World Order messages associated with this movie. First, the minions of the evil Richmond Valentine are forced to accept implants. The implants control the minions by exploding for reasons related to insubordination.
Valentine, with his public persona known for philanthropy, employs the “exploding microchip technology” to control the various heads of state that he meets with. During this meetings, the heads of state are microchipped and become part of Valentine’s Army in order to rule the world. Thus, the leadership of the planet is compromised through the implantation of microchips.
The Planned Population Reduction of Humanity
Valentine’s second part of the plot is destroy most of humanity to prevent extreme climate change. The plan to control humanity is carried out through the much heralded giveaway of SIM cards, granting free cellular and Internet access. Much like the sheep of today, the public lines up for miles to receive the free (Obama) cell phone. However, the free SIM card is a Trojan Horse and is designed to control and ultimately destroy humanity.
After the elite are safely tucked away in a well-guarded underground facility in Sweden, Valentine unleashes his plan in which the frequency of the SIM card is changed and instantly, in every part of the planet, the people of this planet spontaneously and violently turn on each other and begin to kill on another.
Valentine’s plan is to allow humanity to destroy itself and when the job is complete, the elite, controlled by Valentine’s implants, will emerge from their hideaway and will be ruled by the evil madman. Thus, the world will safe from the ravages of global warming.
In December of 2012, I detailed how a family, whose father worked for FEMA in counter-bioterrorism and had recently retired, told me that he and other like-minded DHS and FEMA personnel were going into hiding because of what was coming. He further told me that our government had bio-agents which could promote extreme violence for a prolonged period of time. He said he had information that this would be unleashed for purposes ultimately tied to social control. He stressed to me that life was about to get very unsafe which is why he was going into hiding. They likened this coming event to an attack of Zombies and if you recall, it was in the Fall of 2012 that DHS began to carry out live Zombie suppression drills in places like San Diego on Halloween.
At the end of 2012, I asked him how long we had, and he replied that this could happen in two to three years. We are now in this time frame. This revelation came out at the same time Doug Hagmann brought forth very similar warnings associated with an individual he dubbed “Rosebud”.
Mind Control Technology
With regard to implants and exploding heads, there was a lightheartedness associated with the movie designed to take the edge off of the exploding heads and effects of the mind control SIM cards. My son asked me if the technology exists today and I informed him the SIM card frequency/mind control technology designed to control behavior through frequency modulation has been in existence since at least 1961 through the mind control work of Jose Delgado.
The Dawn of Micro-Chipped Mind Control
In the 1960’s, Spanish neurologist, Jose Delgado was involved in a noteworthy bullfight. Without any real bullfighting training, he bravely stepped into the ring with a very dangerous and deadly bull. However, Delgado had a secret weapon. He had previously implanted a radio-equipped electrode which was implanted into the bull’s limbic system (i.e. emotional center of the brain) which he called “stimoceivers.” Delgado subsequently demonstrated that he could manipulate an organism’s mind and body via remote control technology. Thus, as the bull charged, an invasive electrical signal penetrated the bull’s limbic system and the bull calmly broke off the attack in mid-charge.
Delgado found that by stimulating different regions of the limbic system, which controls emotion, Delgado could also induce fear, rage and a variety of other emotions, that he was able to manipulate the type and intensity of emotional reactions. Thus, Delgado discovered the fine art of mind control.
Intrigued by his work, Delgado was invited to teach and be a guest lecturer at such prominent universities such as Harvard and Yale. However, in 1968, Delgado went to work at the Stanford Research Institute (SRI) and this is where much of his research trail grows cold. We now know that SRI was a CIA front and was connected to the MK Ultra experiments. In 1974, Delgado abruptly returned to Spain and later became an outspoken opponent of mind control and its potential for harm and misuse by totalitarian societies. Perhaps, he was not on board with the CIA and what they eventually had planned for the American people.
In cats, monkeys, bulls and even humans he repeatedly demonstrated that he could control emotion and ultimately behavior. . In one experiment, Delgado stimulated the temporal lobe of a 21-year-old epileptic woman while she was calmly playing a guitar; in response, she flew into a rage and smashed her guitar against a wall, narrowly missing a researcher’s head. Perhaps the most medically promising finding was that stimulation of a limbic region called the septum could trigger euphoria, strong enough in some cases to counteract depression and even physical pain.
Later Delgado was able to impact the hypothalamus of a cat and induce uncontrollable rage in the animal. Keep in mind that this technology is over 60 years old. One can only imagine how far this technology has come during that time.
Delgado’s famous bull fight and the angry cat are depicted in the following video.
The lesson is clear, embedded chips can turn normal people into crazed killers and it can take crazed killers and turn them into passive beings. Interestingly, the most famous graduate of the MK Ultra program was the Unabomber, Ted Kaczynski.
The Mind Control Delivery System: Project HAARP
Many are predicting that biometrics will be required to access the Internet. The fact is that some want your biometric information because this is the first step in gaining control over your mind. The main threat to humanity lies in the fact that the technology exists to control all of human behavior at one time. A reasonable person would certainly ask “how is that possible?” To answer that question, I refer the readers to Nick Begich’s website in which he details how mass electrical signals can beamed up from an array of antenna and bounced off the ionosphere in either a narrow beam covering a specific and defined geographic area, or it can be reflected back to earth in a broad beam application in which millions could be impacted by one electrical signal designed to change human behavior. We know this technology as Project HAARP.
United States Patent 5,159,703, Lowery, October 27, 1992, Silent Subliminal Presentation System, Inventors: Lowery, Oliver M. Appl. No. 458339 Filed December 28, 1989, discusses the microwave technology necessary for mind control. In this patent, we witness the move from the mind control of certain individuals who might have been programmed, which is frightening enough, to witnessing entire populations being controlled. The patent discusses the possibility of impacting millions at a time. The net effect of the technology is enhanced when there is a transducer in the body such as an embedded microchip.
Particularly revealing in the arena of mind control, is Dr. Begich’s work on voice to skull technology. In 1997, he displayed this technology for the European Parliament who promptly issued a ban on the use of the technology. Unfortunately, the technology has moved forward in recent years despite the ban.
Before you write to me and state that this could never happen, please spend 30 minutes on the Begich website, and analyze the validity of his observations. Begich has done a detailed analysis of the patents associated with HAARP, and very clear conclusions about the intent of these technologies can easily be made after examining the facts. Most awake people are aware that HAARP is a weather modification device. However, as a result of my research, I have come to the conclusion that HAARP’s biggest danger to humanity is the mind-control potential related to this technology. Sadly, Dr. Nick Begich has been warning us about this potential for 18 years and it is only now that significant numbers of researchers are starting to pay attention.
A Very Ominous Warning From the Inventor of Electromagnetic Mind Control
In his later years, and after working for the CIA for over 40 years in perfecting this technology, Dr. Delgado was very critical about the distinct lack of Bioethics and consumer protection with regard to these technologies. Until his death a few years ago, Delgado remained particularly critical of technologies which can change human nature. Delgado, stated the following:
“This technology has two sides, for good and for bad, and we should do what we can do to avoid the adverse consequences. We should try to prevent potentially destructive technologies from being abused by authoritarian governments to gain more power or by terrorists to wreak destruction. However, Delgado is a realist as he postulates “can you avoid knowledge? You cannot! Can you avoid technology? You cannot! Things are going to go ahead in spite of ethics, in spite of your personal ethics.”
The above quote from Delgado is a very ominous warning about how serious the subject of mind control is about to to become for every person. After researching Delgado’s past, it is clear that he felt the same about mind control as Einstein felt about the unveiling of nuclear weapons.
An Interesting Aside
In the movie, The Kingsmen, the mind control technology was beta tested at a rural church in Kentucky. The Pastor, who used horribly inappropriate terms and was totally out of control, was depicted to be a facsimile of Alex Jones. In this brief scene, Alex, the person, and his work were marginalized in very graphic terms. The reference was so obvious that my son picked up on the not so subtle references to Alex.
This article demonstrated that the right to control your individual body is under attack on a number of fronts.
And interestingly, Hollywood, through movies like The Kingsmen, are simply telling us that the elite are going to use the technology against humanity.
This article demonstrated that electromagnetic manipulation of the mind is over 50 years old. Further, it was established in this article that technologies such Project HAARP are very real threats to all people and some of the supporting governmental patents were presented as well.
The most surprising aspect of my research into this technology is not how far the technology has advanced, it centers around how easy it was to obtain information on the degree of sophistication of this technology.
As stunning as this technology appears to be, as printed in this article, what is written here is child’s play compared to what has been developed and is in the process of being integrated into the police state surveillance grid.
The American Dream
by Michael Snyder
In recent weeks, there has been a lot of concern that an upcoming eight week military exercise on U.S. soil known as “Jade Helm” is actually a dress rehearsal for the imposition of martial law in this country. One of the reasons for the high level of concern is that we have seen a dramatic increase in the number of “urban warfare exercises” conducted by the U.S. military in major U.S. cities over the past decade – including exercises where “dissidents” are hunted down, arrested and hauled away. As our world becomes increasingly unstable, and as our society rapidly decays from within, many believe that it is only a matter of time before the executive branch will have sufficient excuse to use the extensive martial law powers that it has been accumulating since 9/11. When that day arrives, what will our nation look like? What would actually happen if martial law was declared in America?
Well, the first thing that you need to know is that the U.S. Constitution would be “suspended”.
In other words, you would suddenly have no rights at all.
There would be no freedom of speech, no freedom of the press, no freedom of assembly and you could be arrested at any time for any reason whatsoever.
For the duration of the “emergency”, the military would be in control. There would be troops in the streets, a curfew would almost certainly be imposed, and armed checkpoints would be set up.
If the “emergency” lasted long enough, we would probably see authorities go house to house confiscating firearms, ammunition and food supplies.
And perhaps most troubling of all, “dissidents” and “subversives” would likely be rounded up and imprisoned.
Perhaps you don’t think that this could ever happen in the United States in 2015.
Well, we do know that this is precisely what the FBI had a plan to do in the 1950s. The following is an excerpt from a recent RT article…
Documents show the FBI created a “Plan C” during the Cold War, which could have been triggered in the event the US underwent a nuclear attack. It included putting the nation under martial law, rounding up “subversives,” and interning enemy diplomats.
The documents, acquired by transparency journalism organization MuckRock, detail the FBI plan created in 1956, which was shared with several top officials from every governmental department. The FBI also distributed papers regarding the plan to its field offices. The plan would have gone into effect “after a war has begun in which the US is involved or may become involved and prior to an actual attack on the US itself,” according to the documents.
Under Plan C, martial law would be declared and the FBI would enact its ‘Emergency Detention Program,’ which entailed apprehending individuals whose affiliations with subversive organizations “are so pronounced that their continued liberty in the event of a national emergency would present a serious threat to the internal security of the country.” The document shows that as of April 1956, almost 13,000 people “were scheduled for apprehension in an emergency.”
And we do know that the federal government had a list of at least 8 million names of people that were considered to be “threats to national security” back in the 1980s. This list was known as Main Core, and it is not known whether this list still exists today.
I have a feeling that it does, and that it is probably much larger than it was back then.
We also know that government documents produced during the Obama administration openly discuss rounding up “dissidents” and taking them to internment camps. Just consider the following example from Infowars…
A leaked 2012 US Army Military Police training manual, entitled “Civil Disturbance Operations,” described how soldiers would be ordered to confiscate firearms and kill American “dissidents.” The manual also revealed that prisoners would be detained in temporary internment camps and “re-educated” to gain a new appreciation of “U.S. policies,” in accordance with U.S. Army FM 3-19.40 Internment/Resettlement Operations.
So who would those “dissidents” be exactly?
In “72 Types Of Americans That Are Considered ‘Potential Terrorists’ In Official Government Documents“, I detailed how official U.S. government documents specifically identify those that believe in “conspiracy theories” as possible threats. Others that the government is concerned about include those opposed to abortion, globalism, communism, illegal immigration, the United Nations and “the New World Order”.
I wish that none of this was true. Go check out the article for yourself.
Another very disturbing government document talks about the need for the U.S. Army to prepare to battle political dissidents in “megacities” and to neutralize groups “who can influence the lives of the population while undermining the authority of the state”. Here is more from Infowars…
The U.S. Army is preparing to fight political dissidents who challenge the power of the state as “megacities” become the battleground of the future, according to a new report in the Army Times.
The article details how the Army’s Capabilities Integration Center (ARCIC) worked with US Army Special Operations Command, the chief of staff’s Strategic Studies Group and the UK’s Ministry of Defence earlier this year to wargame the future of armed combat, which will revolve around the neutralization of groups “who can influence the lives of the population while undermining the authority of the state,” a chillingly vague description which could easily be applied to political dissidents.
The plan foresees an unprecedented realignment of U.S. military strategy focused around putting “boots on the ground” in megacities to deal with “politically dispossessed” populations while relying on “more lethal and more autonomous” methods.
Very alarming stuff.
And if we did see martial law declared nationwide, it is likely that all elections would be suspended indefinitely.
That could also potentially include the 2016 presidential election.
Is it possible that Barack Obama could use his emergency powers to stay in the White House beyond his second term? There are some out there that believe that this could actually happen under the right circumstances. For example, check out what Dr. Ben Carson said during an appearance on the Alan Colmes radio show…
COLMES: What do you mean though when you say there may not be an election in 2016?
DR. BEN CARSON: There may be so much anarchy going on.
COLMES: Anarchy? So you really think we risk risking an anarchic America to the point where elections might be put on hold, or some kind of emergency is declared with such anarchy that there wouldn’t be a Presidential election in a couple of years?
DR. BEN CARSON: I don’t want to find out. I really don’t want to find out, I don’t want to continue down this pathway that we’re going down.
And the groundwork has certainly been laid for such a scenario.
During his time in the White House, Barack Obama has signed a series of executive orders that give him and his minions an extraordinary amount of power in the event of a major national emergency.
For example, read the following excerpt from an executive order that Obama signed in March 2012…
Sec. 201. Priorities and Allocations Authorities. (a) The authority of the President conferred by section 101 of the Act, 50 U.S.C. App. 2071, to require acceptance and priority performance of contracts or orders (other than contracts of employment) to promote the national defense over performance of any other contracts or orders, and to allocate materials, services, and facilities as deemed necessary or appropriate to promote the national defense, is delegated to the following agency heads:
(1) the Secretary of Agriculture with respect to food resources, food resource facilities, livestock resources, veterinary resources, plant health resources, and the domestic distribution of farm equipment and commercial fertilizer;
(2) the Secretary of Energy with respect to all forms of energy;
(3) the Secretary of Health and Human Services with respect to health resources;
(4) the Secretary of Transportation with respect to all forms of civil transportation;
(5) the Secretary of Defense with respect to water resources; and
(6) the Secretary of Commerce with respect to all other materials, services, and facilities, including construction materials.
That sounds like it covers just about everything.
Basically, during a time of martial law all of the things that you take for granted today would be out the window.
You would have no rights, and the federal government would be able to do just about anything that it wanted to do.
If that sounds really bad to you, then maybe now you are starting to understand why so many people get upset when they see preparations being made for the eventual imposition of martial law in this country.

Most of us have seen the images as America descends into a new level of tyranny under the cloud of Jade Helm 15 (JH 15) as the loyal American states of Texas and Utah are declared to be “hostile” states.
We have seen the dissident extraction drills in Ft. Lauderdale, FL.
We have seen the nighttime black helicopter extraction transport drills.
We are seeing the relative emergence of what is referred to as FEMA camp “Death Domes” designed to house thousands of detainees.
We know from leaked documents that FEMA Camps are present all over the nation.
From Army Manual 3-39.40, Internment/Resettlement document, we even have the floor plans for FEMA camps.
We are even aware that extensive plans have been made for our final resting place.
NOW THAT YOU UNDERSTAND, THE CHRONOLOGY, THE INTENT AND THE NATURE OF THE GLOBALIST PLANS FOR US, THERE IS ONE REMAINING QUESTION:
WHAT ARE YOUR ODDS OF SURVIVING IN A FEMA CAMP?
Are You Ready?
Are you ready for the coming tyrannical crackdown and the complete evisceration of our constitutional liberties? Have you taken the proper precautions that will ensure the safety of you and your family? It is not likely that very many of us have taken any meaningful steps to maximize our chances for survival in what will prove to be humanity’s darkest days. Do you have what it takes to survive in a re-education camp?
When the Wackenhut bus rolls into your neighborhood at 3AM, are you prepared to deal with what lies ahead? Let’s assume for a second that martial law is fully enacted and you were not able to find a safe sanctuary and that you are arrested by the powers that be. Have you considered what will happen?
Your family members will be separated by the authorities as a prelude to sending you to their detention facilities, and that means that men will go to one facility, and women will go to another. Children will have their own facility awaiting them. Remember, the state owns your children and they have declared so in their Agenda 21 documents. In all likelihood, this will mark the last time you will ever see your family. How do I know this? Read the Rex 84 documents. The government tells you in plain language what they plan to do with you and your family.
The Two Biggest Threats to Your Survival Are Psychological
Imagine how a man who is deprived of everyone he has ever cared about, and at the same time this man has lost his house and all of his possessions, how will he survive? There are two primary dangers facing detainees and the biggest danger consists of bad luck and your showers will actually emit cyanide instead of water. And the second danger detainees will face is the loss of hope as we succumb and let go of life. For how will you find meaning in yourwhen you’re separated from everything you’ve ever known and loved?
If you are sent to the camps in the upcoming clamp down, there are things you can do to exercise control over the things of which you have influence. The Jews, placed in the NAZI death camps, were a very resilient people and were able to manufacture their own subculture while in the death camp.
There Were Resisters to the Forced Incarcerations
There were those, however, that did resist as they ran from the relocation trains, and/or attacked their captors. In almost every instance, resisting authorities at the time of arrest was almost 100% fatal most often ending with a bullet in the back of their head.
Within the death camps, a legitimate subculture appeared as the people played cards and actors, musicians, comics, singers, and dancers all entertained small groups who came together for a few hours to forget their dehumanization. Inmates formed close relationships with one another and this was their grass roots form of resistance.
The voices of history are clear, if you’re ever forced into a re-education camp, pray for good luck and develop meaningful relationships among your fellow detainees and find pleasure in the small things over which you will have some measure of control.
Some Inmates Resisted
In Treblinka, seven hundred Jews were successful in blowing up the camp on August 2, 1943. All but 150 of the inmates perished in retaliation for their efforts. Only 12 Treblinka inmates survived the war. In Sobibor, Jewish and Russian inmates mounted an escape on October 14, 1943. One in ten successfully escaped, about 60 out of 600. The prisoners involved in the escape survived to join the Soviet underground. In Auschwitz, on October 7, 1944, one of the four crematoria was blown up by Jewish workers, whose job it was to clear away the bodies of gas chamber victims. The workers were all caught and 100% of them were killed.
The lesson seems clear, if you allow yourself to be taken, you’re probably not coming out of the experience alive.
What is the lesson that one should draw? First, do not get caught and I know that is easier said than done. Secondly, some will survive, not many, by choosing to go along to get along. Third, you can try to escape. To survive by going along to get along, requires a fair amount of luck to survive. From my perspective, I believe history teaches that mounting an organized escape effort may be the best chance for survival that an inmate has coming out of the death camp experience, alive.
Can a community mount a successful resistance? Despite the stereotype which betrays all Jews as meekly going to their death, there were plenty of communities which mounted a resistance. For example, on September 3, 1942, seven hundred Jewish families escaped from the Tuchin Ghetto, located in Ukraine. However, the Nazis hunted them down, and only 15 survived.
By 1943, the residents in the famous Warsaw Ghetto, had organized an army of about 1,000 men, mostly unarmed and without military equipment. In January 1943, German soldiers entered the ghetto to round up more Jews for shipment to the death camps. They were met by a volley of bombs, Molotov cocktails, and a few bullets from the sparse number of firearms which had been smuggled into the ghettos. Twenty German soldiers were killed. The action encouraged a few members of the Polish resistance to support the uprising, and a few machine guns, some hand grenades, and about a hundred rifles and revolvers were smuggled in.
The Germans returned with almost 3,000 veteran German troops and overcame the resistance. It is true that nearly 300 Germans were killed. However, Jewish losses were estimated at 15,000. Some Jews survived and some actually did escape, but not many.
What is the takeaway from these experiences? Unfortunately, it is an almost certain death sentence if one allows themselves to be incarcerated by a ruthless totalitarian regime. We have seen that resistance at the point of arrest is futile. Armed and organized resistance which includes community involvement, produces long odds for survival, but some do survive. Resisting captors inside of the concentration camp, by any means necessary, is nearly fatal in every case. Acquiescing to authority, while one carves out a life under very dire circumstances, provides the best chance for survival. And for those of us who are naturally resistant to tyranny. this is a bitter pill to swallow! However, and even under these conditions, one’s survival is highly dependent on being lucky.
The best chance for survival if you are ever transported to a detention center, is to avoid being caught in the first place. Two out of every three Jews hidden survived the war. the lesson here is that as society begins to fragment, parents can enhance the survival of their children by bequeathing them to close friends who are not “enemies of the state”.
The Independent reported, that at least 764 people escaped the Holocaust by leaping from trains, a surprising figure, but it is based on data drawn from new research. It appears that escaping during transport, although not commonplace, does provide one with one of the best chances for survival.
Was this the escape proof loophole closed by FEMA, in 2012, when they ordered 102,000 box cars with shackles?
I predict that there will come a time in America when we will regret the day that we did not resist the bankster controlled government while we still had the means and that would have been prior to DHS acquiring 2.2 billion rounds of ammunition. Perhaps your survival instinct should kick in and stand up the tyranny that is staring us square in the face. Perhaps we should all learn a valuable lesson in history and never give up our guns. Perhaps we can pray for the Second Coming!

Is this roundup taking place in China, Iran or Russia? As many already know, this recently took place in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida in which “pretend” dissidents are rounded up as part of the Jade Helm 15 drill. Please note the straight line and the hands on the shoulders of those in front of them, as they were swept away to waiting white vans. We are witnessing the implementation of the Fourth Reich.
I think it is logical to assume that Jade Helm 15 will go live and it is a martial law extraction of dissidents exercise to be followed by full scale martial law. I have received many inquiries about when I believe martial law will be declared. Despite all the documentation and anecdotal evidence, on my own, I am not able to precisely determine the time of the implementation of martial law on the streets of America.
Even though it is not possible to know the date, without the information leaking from the inside, I do believe that there are “the chest pains before the heart attack”, which will provide the clues necessary to determine when martial law will be imposed.
Your Pastor Will Know the Date of Martial Law Implementation
Many people in the independent media have reported that an estimated 28,000 pastors were recruited by FEMA/DHS, as part of the Clergy Response Team, and that their initial and primary training was to tell their flock to obey the DHS version of Romans 13. Romans 13, in the King James version of the Bible, begins:
“Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.” Romans 13:1
Many of us have been quick to point out that this bastardization of the Romans 13 is designed to force compliance to government edicts who might not otherwise comply. Certainly all governments are not established by God. Were the governments of Stalin, Hitler, Pol Pot, all ordained by God? What about George the III?
All of Pastor Mansfield’s revelations stem from legislation known as, The National Emergency Centers Act or HR 645 which mandates the establishment of “national emergency centers” to be located on military installations for the purpose of to providing “temporary housing, medical, and humanitarian assistance to individuals and families dislocated due to an emergency or major disaster,” according to the bill.
The legislation also states that the camps will be used to “provide centralized locations to improve the coordination of preparedness, response, and recovery efforts of government, private, and not-for-profit entities and faith-based organizations”. Hence, the birth of NOVAD and the Clergy Response Teams.
The bill also provides that the camps can be used to “meet other appropriate needs”, as determined by the Secretary of Homeland Security. This a carte blanche mandate that many fear could mean the forced detention of American citizens in the event of widespread rioting following a national emergency or a total economic collapse.
Pastor Mansfield’s Clergy Response Team Training Is Very Telling
Pastor Mansfield attended several briefings and he could barely believe his ears. He learned of the government’s plan to enact martial law as well as to implement forced population relocations. Mansfield emphasized that when martial law is enacted, the enforcement would be immediate. In other words, family members will be separated from each other and part of the training that the clergy received was how to comfort separated family members. It doesn’t take much imagination to conclude that this is what we are seeing from the horrifying images from Ft. Lauderdale and the Death Domes throughout Texas.
Pastor Mansfield told me that the pastors were trained by FEMA to go to homes were people refused to be relocated by the authorities and their immediate job was to convince the reluctant to willingly go to the relocation camps. Ostensibly, this was to be done in lieu of sending in the SWAT teams.
I asked Mansfield if FEMA camps were real and he stated that much of the clergy training focused around this scenario of pastors operating within the forced relocation centers. The main goal of a pastor assigned was to bring order and encourage compliance with DHS requests, hence, the emphasis on Romans 13.
Disturbingly, Pastor Mansfield reiterated several times that the number one job of these pastors is to calm down the detainees and encourage their compliance within the people’s new surroundings.
Pastor Mansfield also stated that pastors will be utilized as informants. This violates the legal privilege of confidentiality between pastor and church-goer, that is currently recognized by law. All church-goers can no longer trust the sanctity of personal confessions and revelations made to pastors and priests. This one illegal act by DHS completely undermines the Christian Church in America!
DUE TO THE FACT THAT THE CLERGY RESPONSE TEAM WILL BE UTILIZED IN THE EXTRACTION PROCESS OF AMERICANS, TO FORCED INTERNMENT/RESETTLEMENT CAMPS, THESE “TEAM” MEMBERS REPRESENT THE BEST CLUE WE HAVE AS TO WHEN MARTIAL LAW WILL BE CARRIED OUT.
I strongly suspect that the Clergy Response Teams are a part of Jade Helm 15 and simply listed as DHS personnel. With a minimum of 28,000 pastors being a part of this dastardly plan, we need to all put our pastors under our watchful eye. Is your Pastor disappearing for unexplained periods of time? Network with people you know from other churches. Are your respective Pastors disappearing at the same time? Can you account for your Pastor’s travels? This past weekend, at Baylor University, Christians from all over the Southwest came together at Baylor’s football stadium for fellowship at an event referred to as the “Gathering“. Given the political climate in Texas, I am a little more than suspicious that this event did not bring together several Clergy Response Team members for additional training under NOVAD. Again, we need to putting our Pastors under scrutiny because we have 28,000 Judas’ in our midst.
Clergy Response Team Members Are Intimidated and Threatened by DHS
Mansfield told me that the pastors in America are being coerced to participate because when an emergency is declared, no pastor, who does not have the “FEMA-trained government badge” will be allowed to be in a declared “emergency” SAFE area.
Pastor Mansfield also felt very strongly this was the government’s way of removing Jesus from America’s landscape and set the stage for the ushering in of a new-age religion. In fact, Mansfield shared with me documentation which demonstrated DHS’ attempt to remove Jesus from the entire internment/resettlement process.
The pastors were told not to quote Scripture. The DHS document which was prepared for the pastors clearly stated that Scripture had been used to “oppress” people in the past and the presenters strongly discouraged the its use. Please see the following excerpt from one of the DHS training manuals:
Healing Scripture and Prayer In the Pastoral Crisis Intervention
“During a time of crisis people do go through a “crisis of faith.”
Sometime quick mention of God and scripture may not be helpful. As we all know the Scripture has been used to oppress, dominate and at the same time used for healing and reconciliation- renewing of relationship with God and people. If the pastor senses it is appropriate to use the scripture and prayer, it must carefully be done for healing of victims not to uphold pastoral authority.” (Page 14)
In other words, all legitimate pastoral authority was abrogated by the pastors who participated in the roundup of American citizens.
Also on page 14 of the same training document, pastors were admonished to avoid“Unhealthy God talk….” Specifically pastors are ordered to avoid using references to God when helping people cope with the loss of a loved one:
“4. God must have needed him/her more than you.”
“5. God never gives more than we can handle.“
Doesn’t this strike you as odd? DHS recruits Pastors but will not let them preach the Word of God? Can we think of anyone or anything else that might support this goal? Please allow me to provide another hint:
The artwork of Jade Helm 15 is bizarre and troubling. Please note the broken arrows. In military parlance, broken arrow means that a military unit’s perimeter has been overrun and defeat imminent. The meaning here is easy to extrapolate.
Originally, I was stumped by the phrase that accompanied the symbol for Jade Helm 15, “Master the Human Domain”. This is not a phrase that is in our American colloquialisms. On the surface, it appears to mean that this drill is about the enslavement of humanity? Certainly, the Obama administration would not be so bold, even if this was their intent, to so brazenly put this phrase as moniker for a major operation. Wouldn’t that alert the public that something evil was afoot? Or, has this plot gone so far that they do not care?
Upon closer examination, the fact that the term”Human Domain” is used, it makes me wonder what would the “Un-Human Domain” consist of? And certainly the word “Master” does strongly imply slavery. And who is unhuman enough to be interested in enslaving humanity? The only possible answer is the Prince of Darkness. There is no other way to interpret this moniker for Jade Helm 15.
Now we know who the real enemy is. We also know that this rapture in reverse (i.e. “disappearing Pastors”) are a warning sign of impending martial law, the question remains, what are we going to do about it?

The blueprint for the globalist enslavement of America remains unchanged and we Americans are marching directly toward our final demise as a nation. With all the things we write about, and with all of the things that we call attention to, the methodology associated with the subjugation of the people of the United States, can be accurately summarized into a four part plan with the final goal of the destruction of the United States.
1- An economic collapse is unleashed against the people of the United States.
2- The ensuing chaos will lead to the pretext for the imposition of martial law.
3- The martial law phase will result in the imposition of a New World Order which will wipe out all notions of private property and constitutional liberties.
4- World War III will commence and this will culminate in the destruction of America.
This article is introductory in nature, and it will serve to expose the globalist four part agenda to enslave America. Subsequent articles will be offered as part of a multi-part series which will explore each of these four areas in detail along with some potentially life-saving suggestions intended to enhance individual survivability during each of the four phases.
Phase One: Economic Collapse
Certainly, our $18 trillion dollar debt, plus our $240 trillion dollar unfunded liabilities (e.g. social security, Medicare) and the one (plus) quadrillion dollar credit swap derivatives debt are all poised to collapse the economy once and for all.
The entire GDP of the planet is under $70 trillion dollars. Therefore, the derivatives debt can never be paid off, not in this century and not even in the 50th century.
The collapse of the economy is a certainty. Certainly the globalists can merely wait for nature to take its course and the three aforementioned debts will naturally crush the economic life out of this country. However, our quasi-governmental agencies and governmental agencies have practiced for the day of collapse and seem to be accelerating the planned demise. Treasury Secretary Jack Lew and the UK’s Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne, on November 10, 2014, ran a joint exercise simulating how they would prop up a large bank (e.g. Bank of America) with operations in both countries that has landed itself in trouble. Also taking part in the “bank failure drill” was Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen and Bank of England Governor Mark Carney, and the heads of a large number of other regulators, in a meeting hosted by the U.S. Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation.
I am convinced that the globalists will not wait for nature to take its course and our economy is going to die a “violent death”, as they will collapse the economy in a manner of their choosing the death of the American economic system will come like a thief in the night and the majority of sheep that inhabit this country, will never know what hit them. If you do not plan properly, every financial asset that you own will soon be gone.
Part two of this series will explore these specific events, and more importantly, some suggestions will be offered to help “soften the landing”.
Phase Two: Martial Law
We literally see the signs of martial law imposition in our daily lives. This is the key stage that will witness the elimination of all opposition to the subjugation of the United States.
This is the phase that the preppers spend most of their time telling their friends and neighbors to prepare for. There will be literally 30 days to six months of hell on earth for most major American cities. During this time, America will look like the movie The Purge.
During this period, most unprepared Americans will be victimized by criminal elements in their communities. There will be no 911 to call as you will be on your own. Also during this time, all opposition voices will quietly disappear. America will quickly come to know the meaning of the NDAA.
The implications and how to best prepare for this phase will be offered to the reader in Part three of this series.
Phase Three: Martial Law Leads to the Imposition of the New World Order and the Evisceration of All American Traditions
During this phase martial law will move away from the false pretense that existing social order is designed to keep all Americans safe from the designated boogey man of the of the day. You will own nothing but the shirt on your back. Your existence can only be described with terms like slavery and indentured servitude. America will have the technology to impose the most brutal dictatorship in all of human history as this country will make the Gestapo, the KGB and the Stasi look like child’s play.
In the New World Order, you will have but one purpose, to serve the whim of the state. Americans will live in fear of state sponsored snitches. Every day’s challenge will be dominated by a people who will be paralyzed with the fear of being branded a traitor to the state. Life in North Korea will be preferable to what Americans will be forced to endure. The state will be the sole enforcement agent for the real rulers of the planet, the corporations. This eventuality was predicted by the 1970’s movies Rollerball and Network. Part four of this series will explore these dynamics in detail.
Part four of this series will explore these topics in much more detail.
Phase Four: World War III
Our military technology has been sold to our enemies. As a result, the Chinese are surpassing the United States in stealth technology. The Russians are showing advanced capabilities in electronic warfare as evidenced by the fact that their fleet just sent the U.S. carrier Roosevelt running for cover in the UK.
In the last phase, American combat troops will be isolated and destroyed. The most egregious example of this will take place in Afghanistan. When the war starts, these troops will be isolated and will have no way to get home or even be resupplied.
During this phase, we will see the rise of fifth column forces here at home designed to subjugate the home front. The implantation of these forces was accomplished under the cover of illegal immigration last summer.
Part five will be devoted to an in-depth analysis of this topic.
People often ask me, “How long do we have”? The answer is that we are out of time and each of these four phases are underway to various degrees. Sadly, the American people have no advocates. Congress has been marginalized and the office of the President has been compromised for a very long time which leaves the people to organize a meaningful resistance on their own and this has a very remote possibility of success.
By Gulam Asgar MITHA
US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in 2007 had supposedly asked ex-Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd “how do you get tough on your banker?” This was over concerns about China’s growing power and hold on US finances and according to Wikileaks Rudd told Clinton to keep force as a last resort. Do the Chinese trust the Americans? As superpowers, both are wary of each other. The business of America has always been business, not friendship or the interest of others in mind except their very own. That is understandable. About the American hubris- I once read somewhere that hubris was the downfall of a Greek hero in some classical tragedy.
We are entering a new era- the era of a currency war that will test the might of the US economy and the dollar against the might of the Chinese economy and the yuan. The rope in the tug of war will be crude oil. The US economy based hegemony is being challenged by China and therefore it is naturally given that the US will try to maintain its global geopolitical and financial position. Between the giants, the global financial system could end up being completely redefined through a devastating war in the Middle East.
Some years ago I’d read a book “Petrodollar Warfare” by William Clark. The book was published in 2005 when the euro was a rising currency and China’s yuan was a distant dream. Clark had written that the rationale for intervening (in Iraq) was not just for control of oilfields, but also for the control of the means by which oil is traded in global markets. Saddam was deposed by the US and its Arab allies (who held US$ as their reserve currencies) because he refused to sell oil in US$ alone. The same fate was meted to Libya’s Gaddafi. Now Iran is in the American crosshairs not because it is purportedly developing a nuclear bomb which the CIA itself has denied but because it has been selling oil in several currencies from its Kish Island bourse. China is buying oil in international markets from countries that are willing to accept the yuan. Based on the US Energy Information (EIA), China in 2013 became the number two oil importer at 6.2 million bbls/day (MMBOPD), just slightly behind that of the US at 6.6 MMBOPD. Again, as per the EIA, China will become the largest importer of oil in 2014-15. Not only that but China’s oil production from overseas equity shares through acquisitions increased from a meagre 150,000 BOPD in 2005 to 2.7 MMBOPD in 2013.
China has been importing 52% of its crude oil from the Middle East (including 10% from Iran and 20% from Saudi Arabia) while on the flip side the US has reduced its imports from Saudi Arabia to 16% while the imports from Canada have been steadily increasing over the years. In 2010 US oil production was 9.7 MMBOPD and consumption was 19.2 MMBOPD. That balance changed in 2014 as oil production increased to 13.4 MMBOPD due to shale oil while consumption has actually decreased to 18.7 MMBOPD due to alternate energy and fuel efficiency. Net imports, therefore, further decreased in 2014 by 1.3 MMBOPD (source: EIA)
For over 40 years the US$ has been enjoying an unprecedented and guaranteed position as the world’s global currency reserve. In 1971, President Richard Nixon ordered the cancellation of the direct convertibility of the United States dollar to gold due to heavy inflation caused by the Vietnam war, trade deficit and the rising price of oil which made the dollar worth less than the price of gold used to back it from the Bretton Woods that all other currencies (including the British pound) to be indirectly linked to the gold standard wherein the Central Banks would trade gold among themselves at an agreed peg of US$35/ troy oz. Immediately after this, Nixon negotiated with Saudi Arabia that all oil prices would, in future, be denominated in US$s thus delinking from the metallic yellow gold standard to the fluid black gold standard in return for arms sales and protection. All thirteen OPEC countries including Iran adopted the sale of oil in US dollar. This allowed the US to export much of its inflation.
In January 2015, the Bank of International Settlements (BIS) issued a paper titled Global dollar credit: links to US monetary policy and leverage outlining “that since the global financial crisis (of 2008), banks and bond investors have increased the outstanding US dollar credit to non-bank borrowers outside the United States from $6 trillion to $9 trillion (and up from $2 trillion in 2001). This increase due to quantitative easing (QE) by US Federal Reserve Bank has implications for understanding global liquidity and monetary policy transmission”. The report explores the horrifying and addictive scale of global debt in US dollars. In layman language the debt is a direct result of the US printing of dollars since 2008.
According to SWIFT (Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication) China’s yuan became one of the world’s top five payment currencies in November 2014, overtaking the Canadian dollar and the Australian dollar. Global yuan payments increased by 20.3 percent in value in December 2014. CIPS (China International Payments System) will also put the yuan on a more even footing with other major global currencies like the U.S. dollar, yen, pound sterling and euro. It is possible that in a few short years the yuan will share the same position with the dollar as the petrocurrency with the price of oil being quoted in both yuan and dollar. This will cause a massive migration of dollars to head back into the US from foreign countries and foreign investors resulting in hyperinflation.
Having explained the impact the yuan in a few years and global debt addiction due to the US QE policies, we turn our attention to the new CIPS to be launched by end of 2015 as an alternative to SWIFT which links more than 9000 financial institutions in over 200 countries for facilitating global currency transactions. As per a Reuters report of 9 March 2015 “the launch of the CIPS will remove one of the biggest hurdles to internationalizing the yuan and should greatly increase global usage of the Chinese currency by cutting transaction costs and processing times”. Reuters mentioned that “CIPS will become the superhighway for the yuan”.
Under above scenarios, the 40 years of political and economic marriage of convenience between Saudi Arabia and the US would likely change. Iran could well emerge as the regional Middle East superpower and a close Chinese and Russian ally under the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) – a new OPEC with nuclear bombs as suggested in brevity by Professor David Wall in Matthew Brummer’s Journal of International Affairs The Shanghai Cooperation Organization and Iran: A Power-Full Union. Could that well lead to World War 3 or history may refer to it as “the petrocurrency war”?

Government Orders Bank Tellers To Alert Police About Your Cash Withdrawals: So They Can “Seize the Funds… Investigate”
by Mac Slavo
How can you tell if you’re living in a police state?
The short answer is that you’re living in a police state when everyone becomes a suspected criminal or terrorist. And if the following report is any indicator, then welcome to the Reich.
The Justice Department has ordered bank tellers across America to contact law enforcement if they suspect your cash withdrawal may have something to do with illicit activity. There doesn’t need to be proof, or any sort of red flag indicator – merely suspicion by the bank teller processing your transaction is now enough to have you investigated by authorities.
Via The Sovereign Man Simon Black
What a lot of people don’t realize is that banks are already unpaid government spies.
Federal regulations in the Land of the Free REQUIRE banks to file ‘suspicious activity reports’ or SARs on their customers. And it’s not optional.
Banks have minimum quotas of SARs they need to fill out and submit to the federal government.
If they don’t file enough SARs, they can be fined. They can lose their banking charter. And yes, bank executives and directors can even be imprisoned for noncompliance.
This is the nature of the financial system in the Land of the Free.
And chances are, your banker has filled one out on you—they submitted 1.6 MILLION SARs in 2013 alone.
But now the Justice Department is saying that SARs aren’t enough.
Now, whenever banks suspect something ‘suspicious’ is going on, they want them to pick up the phone and call the cops:
“[W]e encourage those institutions to consider whether to take more action: specifically, to alert law enforcement authorities about the problem, who may be able to seize the funds, initiate an investigation, or take other proactive steps.”
So what exactly constitutes ‘suspicious activity’? Basically anything.
According to the handbook for the Federal Financial Institution Examination Council, banks are required to file a SAR with respect to:
“Transactions conducted or attempted by, at, or through the bank (or an affiliate) and aggregating $5,000 or more…”
It’s utterly obscene. According to the Justice Department, going to the bank and withdrawing $5,000 should potentially prompt a banker to rat you out to the police.
Do you need to withdraw cash to purchase a used car from a private seller?
Or perhaps you are pulling out some emergency cash for a loved one.
Either one of these activities are now considered suspicious and if your cash withdrawal amounts to even a few thousand dollars your bank teller is under a legal requirement to alert officials about your suspected criminal activity. And before you argue that you can’t possibly be a suspect because you have done nothing wrong, consider that even being suspected of being a suspect is now enough to land you on a terrorist watchlist in America.
In fact, according to the Obama Administration concrete facts are no longer necessary:
The Obama administration has quietly approved a substantial expansion of the terrorist watchlist system, authorizing a secret process that requires neither “concrete facts” nor “irrefutable evidence” to designate an American or foreigner as a terrorist, according to a key government document obtained by The Intercept.
Because the government tracks “suspected terrorists” as well as “known terrorists,” individuals can be watchlisted if they are suspected of being a suspected terrorist, or if they are suspected of associating with people who are suspected of terrorism activity.
But you’re not a terrorist, right?
Wrong. In America, everyone is now suspected of terrorism or suspected of associating with people who might be terrorists. And because this is now the culture that exists within law enforcement agencies on the local, state and Federal levels, everyone is considered guilty until proven innocent.
And that goes double for your personal assets.
In 2012 law enforcement agencies seized $4.2 billion in assets from Americans. In most cases the money, homes, cars or other assets were seized without probable cause, warrants, charge or trial.
Because according to the government, you don’t own that and the Justice Department just made it easier to engage in authorized “shake-downs” of the American people.
Here’s how the scam works:
A police officer pulls a car over for speeding. The officer thinks he smells marijuana and seizes money and perhaps other property from the vehicle. The officer (or other law enforcement agent) writes and signs a statement or affidavit explaining the situation and reasons for the seizure of the property. That statement is used to show the courts the link between the alleged criminal behavior and the seized property.
This amounts to true “highway robbery” or roadside piracy.
Because the case is against the property and not the owner, court cases have names like these:
United States v. $124,700 in U.S. Currency
State v. One 2012 Mercedes Benz
United States v. One Gold Necklace
Property, of course, does not have constitutional rights. As Sarah Stillman explains in her New Yorker article Taken:
There’s no right to an attorney and, in most states, no presumption of innocence. Owners who wish to contest often find that the cost of hiring a lawyer far exceeds the value of their seized goods. Washington, D.C., charges up to twenty-five hundred dollars simply for the right to challenge a police seizure in court, which can take months or even years to resolve.
Asset forfeiture creates huge incentives for law enforcement officers to “police for profit”. The money can be used for salaries and to purchase advanced equipment.
From this point forward keep in mind that a trip to the bank could end with you being “investigated” by police. As we’ve seen time and again, police can simply call in a K-9 unit that will inevitably find trace amounts of drugs on your cash (because all cash has trace amounts of cocaine, meth or other substances). Once you’ve been identified as a suspected drug smuggler, they give themselves the authority to seize your cash, car, and even your house if they so choose.
It’s a sad state of affairs when law-abiding American citizens now have to worry about how to hide their money where the bankers and police can’t find it. When travelling or keeping money at home consider the Shovel and Maneuver for Hiding Gold, Guns and Other Assets:
And of course, you’ll want to keep mum about your new investments and how they’re being stored, because loose lips will pose a threat to not just your gold hoard, but your life as well. If thieves get wind of your investments, they may show up not with a metal detector, but armaments, putting your entire family at risk.
The scary part is that the thieves are now our very own government officials and law enforcement authorities so they can give themselves the legal authority to come in guns blazing anytime they so choose.
