A Clergy Response Team Insider Reveals the Duties of a Pastor Inside of a FEMA Camp

The Common Sense Show
by Dave Hodges

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 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? Most people in the independent media think that this is the extent of the threat posed by the existence of the Clergy Response Teams.

 

Romans 13 Is Just the Tip of the Iceberg

 

I have discovered that the Clergy Response Teams are taking on much more nefarious duties and it can be accurately stated that the pastors associated with the DHS/FEMA/Clergy Response Teams are going to be doing a whole lot more than encouraging their flock to obey the government.

 

On December 9, 2014, I conducted a telephonic interview with Pastor Walt Mansfield. Pastor Mansfield was among the first of the pastors recruited to become a part of the Clergy Response Team. The revelations he conveyed to me about this program had pastors doing a whole lot more than preaching Romans 13. But before going to the disturbing contents of the interview, let’s take a look at relevant legislation which helps to legitimize Pastor Mansfield’s outrageous claims.

 

Background Legislation

ndaa fema campsOn December 31, 2011, President Obama signed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) into law which in addition to allocating $662 billion to the Pentagon also contains a measure which allows U.S. citizens to be taken into custody and held indefinitely without ever being charged with a crime.

Not only can any citizen deemed a threat to “national security interests of the United States,” be held forever without receiving a trial, but the military will be the ones arresting those citizens.

NDAA Section 1022, subsection c allows “(1) Detention under the law of war without trial until the end of the hostilities authorized by the Authorization for Use of Military Force.”

 

fema camps superdomeThe National Emergency Centers Act or HR 645 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”.

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 “Insider” Revelations

Pastor Mansfield was recruited to become a member of the Clergy Response Team which would operate under the control of NOVAD and DHS. Mansfield’s revelations about his experiences are stunning and concerning at the same time.

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.

Pastor Mansfield emphasized that the FEMA/DHS drills were predicated on bioterrorism. The pastors were trained 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 to a FEMA was to bring order and encourage compliance with DHS requests, hence, the emphasis on Romans 13.

The pastors were forced to sign non-disclosure. Interesting, 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.

 

Pastor Mansfield also revealed that pastors will be issued badges under the Clergy Response Team program. Any pastor not displaying the badge, indicating that they have been trained under these guidelines, will not be permitted into the established and designated “DHS safety zones”. This reminds me of the banishment of religious figures from Plymouth Colony who, in good conscience, refused to go along with some of the extremism of that day. Along these lines, the Clergy Response Team is also a “Kool-Aid drinking program”. Pastors are absolutely forbidden to publicly to speak about any aspect of the program. If you were to ask your pastor if they are a FEMA trained pastor, they will not likely tell you.

Disturbingly, Pastor Mansfield reiterated several times that the number one job of these pastors is to calm down people 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, priests or rabbis’. This one illegal act by DHS completely undermines the Christian Church in America!

 

Summary

What pastor could, in good conscience, participate in this heinous program? Mansfield told me that there are an estimated 28,000 FEMA trained pastors. 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” area. Pastor Mansfield felt 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.

It is mindboggling to fathom how so many reporters and media types deny the existence of FEMA camps under these circumstances. It is also disturbing that any pastor would agree to participate in a program in which Jesus and the Bible end up on the cutting room floor.

Since interviewing Pastor Mansfield, I have been contemplating the potential wisdom of Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn in which made the following quote:

Solzhenitsyn once said that
“We should have resisted the KGB at the front door. If the KGB thought that they might not go home that night, the Russian people might have had a different fate”.

The Growing American Police State Is Tightening Its Noose Around Our Necks

The Common Sense Show
by Dave Hodges

No Expectation of Privacy

The Supreme Court has ruled that when an individual is in public, they have no expectation of privacy. The courts have also ruled that it is legal to videotape the police. However, someone forgot to tell the police

Your Camera Makes You a Criminal

If a police officer is performing their lawful duties with integrity and nobility, they should welcome being videotaped. Increasingly, police officers treat the videotaping public with a sense of indignation when they know they are caught on tape. Why? Don’t the authorities repeatedly tell the public that if you are not doing anything wrong, you should not mind being surveilled? Why should law enforcement be treated any differently?

Do you remember the case of a  Hialeah, FL. Police officer, Fritz Janvier and his fellow police officers arrest Eric Faden on public property for filming them. Watch the overreaction by the police. These are tactics of law enforcement operating within a police state .

 

 

A  Hawthorne, CA. resident stymies the police after being confronted with videotaping officers in which he uses the magic phrase:

 

 

This Is Our Future America

We are being conditioned for the full roll-out of martial law. After the Boston Marathon Bombing, the citizens of Boston grabbed their ankles and submitted to illegitimate authority. My considered advice to America is to reach for your camera. Americans should also refuse to submit to these unlawful orders. Yet, we still have too many sheep living among us to reclaim our lost liberties and to be safe and secure within our homes.

boston martial law dhs

 

I think we should ask ourselves, what would the Minutemen at Lexington and Concord have done in response to the martial law implementation following the Boston bombing?

lexington and concord 2

 

 

The spirit of Lexington and Concord has turned into the following:

Where was accountability for these illegal police state actions?

The Real purpose of this event:

The above was a rehearsal for the following:

un martial law forces

 

Get your cameras ready, there is going to a lot film in the near future.

 

 

 

 

Even the individual who filmed the murder of Eric Garner has been arrested. Here no evil, see no evil.  The police are now using the excuse that filming interferes with their activities. Anytime the police are allowed to use excessive force and are able to prevent the filming of their abuse, the citizens of that society live in a police state. In this case, it is  called “POLICE STATE AMERICA”!

The man who filmed the murder of Eric Garner is facing charges.

The man who filmed the murder of Eric Garner is facing charges. There are some that are contending that this is not a choke hold. How much would these officers get away with if they weren’t filmed?

 

Will America continue to acquiesce to the new police state without so much as a whimper? Am I free to go or am I free to be abused for minor crimes or no crimes at all, is becoming a common question.  I am not suggesting that we meet the new level of police brutality with violence. Quite the opposite, the spirit of Ghandi and Martin Luther King need to be invoked and people need to passively withdraw their compliance to an increasingly illegitimate authority.

FBI Report Accidentally Exposes The Severity Of The Police State

The Anti Media
by Cary Wedler

police

A recently published FBI report accidentally proves that while the police claim cops face growing threats from rowdy populations–like in Ferguson–the opposite is true. The report presents law enforcement deaths in 2013.

The report found that across the entire country, only 76 LEOs were killed in “line-of-duty” incidents. 27 died as a result of “felonious” acts and 49 officers died in accidents–namely, automobile (ironically, of the 23 killed in car accidents, 14 were not wearing seat belts–a violation for which cops routinely ticket drivers). More officers die from accidents than actual murders on the job. The report also outright admits that intentional murders of cops were down from 2004 and 2009.

Further, 49,851 officers were assaulted–a statistic that seemingly proves police are at risk. 29.2%, or 14,556, were actually injured (an admittedly high number). Still, a suspect fact is that 79.8% of the time, “assailants used personal weapons (hands, fists, feet, etc.).” This means that in a vast majority of cases, there was no physical evidence that assault occurred (outside of potential bruises and cuts,but this information is not public). Punches and kicks can be damaging, but nowhere near firearms and knives, which constituted a very small percentage of “assaults.” The report also does not specify what constitutes an “injury,” making designations of injury potentially arbitrary and subjective.

This means that the common police tactic of misrepresenting scuffles and charging people with assault could be at work (such as when a cop squeezed the breast of an Occupy protester so hard he left a bruise and in the chaos, she accidentally elbowed a cop. She went to jail for “assaulting” an officer). Of course, it’s a possibility that all 49,851 officers were simply “doing their jobs,” but at the very least it is important to be skeptical.

But besides direct contradictions to the logic behind institutional myths of heroic cops and dangerous bad guys, what are the implications of this FBI report?

First, that police are schizophrenic in their belief that they are in danger (this fear is proven in the recent Ferguson protests and presence of the National Guard). The overzealous militarization of local cops is enough to prove that they might as well be hiding under blankies from the American populace in spite of the fact thatviolent crime has been dropping for decades.

However, considering how well cops are armed and how efficiently the justice system protects them from prosecution for their crimes, they prove to be paranoid. 27 police officers in a country with over 300 million people died last year. Law enforcement deaths-by-murder are included in the 49,851 “assaults” against officers, which means that .05 (half a percent) died as a result of alleged attacks. Crime against cops has dropped to a 50 year low. It’s more dangerous to drive a car than be a cop (this is bolstered by the fact that the number of cops who died in car accidents almost equals the total number of cops murdered–23 to 27).

Second, militarization is working for the police. It is not working for the rest of us. Though there is little reliable, official data about the number of people police kill every year, tenuous reports claim it is around 400. This is already almost 15 times more than police who are intentionally killed. However, the 400 figure is a result of 17,000 local police agencies being allowed to self-report. The numbers could be far higher.

As Tech Dirt said of a 2008 FBI report that found cops had killed 391 people in 2007:

“That count only includes homicides that occurred during the commission of a felony. This total doesn’t include justifiable homicides committed by police officers against people not committing felonies and also doesn’t include homicides found to be not justifiable. But still, this severe undercount far outpaces the number of cops killed by civilians.”

The number of “justifiable” homocides was on the rise in 2008 (to be fair, it was rising among private citizens as well) in spite of the inconvenient fact that overall crime has been declining.

Unfortunately, the most important implication of the FBI report is the simple fact that the report exists. When the FBI takes the time to construct a meticulous report (you can read more details here) of all the ways that a tiny percentage of cops were killed–but cannot be bothered to officially count civilian deaths at the hands of cops, the reality is obvious:

The governemnt places a higher priority on their own than on the lives of those they claim to “serve,” “protect,” and “work for.” It cares more about exonerating the police of their crimes than providing justice to those they abuse. There is no justice when the criminal is the cop.

Mexican President Peña Nieto Announces Police-State Plan as More Bodies are Discovered

Global Research
By Rafael Azul

President-Mexico-Pena-Nieto-Missing-Students

Eleven decapitated bodies were found on Thursday, November 27. The bodies had been dumped near Colula, Guerrero.

The discovery took place as Mexican president Enrique Peña Nieto was presenting a nationwide project to combat crime that would further militarize Mexican law enforcement and allow the federal government in Mexico City to replace municipal and state governments.

State authorities presume that the young men had been shot before being decapitated and that the bodies had been abandoned the night before, following a confrontation between rival drug gangs (the Rojos and the Ardillos) over territorial control. Their heads have not yet been found.

The eleven dead add to the long list of bodies that have been exhumed in Southern Guerrero, both before and since the disappearance of 43 students on September 26 and 27 at a normal school (teachers’ college) at Ayotzinapa, Guerrero. In that incident, the local police killed six people, wounding 25 students. The 43 disappeared students have not been found, dead or alive.

A month ago, 13 bodies were found in two hidden graves in the same town, Chilapa de Álvarez. Thirty more bodies have been found around the city of Iguala, where the September massacre took place. Almost all have been unidentified. Last week, the Costa Chica community police discovered another 26 bodies. One of them, Jesús Quemada, had been buried with his wallet and was identified from three partially-burnt bank-cards.

Quemada’s is one of only four cadavers identified so far this year in Guerrero, out of 89 that have been found.

The Peña Nieto administration showed very little interest in the Costa Chica search, “They showed no interest in finding out about the bodies, if they did not have to do with the 43 disappeared students,” declared Napoleón Garibo, one of the searchers. His observation concurs with recurring accusations by social activists that state and federal government officials are criminally indifferent to the plight of the disappeared. They accuse officials of not following accepted procedures, not protecting evidence, not bothering to obtain DNA samples from family members and not even returning their calls.

Since 2008, over 27,000 have been reported missing in Mexico. The National Bank of Genetic Data contains 25,884 DNA samples, yet only 542 bodies have been positively identified.

Under these conditions, president Peña’s new proposal would give Congress the authority to dissolve city and state governments that are deemed infiltrated by drug gangs and give states control over municipal police forces that are likewise supposed to be corrupt. As if pretending to be a leopard changing his spots, Peña made it clear that his proposal was in response to the Ayotzinapa killings and disappearances: “its cruelty and savagery have shocked Mexico.” In reality, this incident is by no means an isolated one. A recent report by the French magazine FRANCE24 uncovered the kidnapping of 31 high school students on July 7 in Cocula, Guerrero.

With this proposal, the Mexican ruling class is moving toward a police state. In addition to giving Congress the authority to interfere with elected governments and to militarize police forces under federal control, the government would create a national identity card that all Mexicans would be required to carry.

To begin with, federal police and security forces are to be sent to the states of Guerrero, Michoacán, Jalisco and Tamaulipas, considered the most violent. Federal troops and special security forces already operate in Michoacán and Guerrero at will. While it is not entirely known how much they knew, infantry forces (the 27th Battalion) stationed in Guerrero refused to come to the aid of injured students, and took a hands-off attitude toward the massacre. The 27th Battalion has a sinister history of repression and human rights violations that go as far back as Mexico’s “dirty war” of counterinsurgency in the 1970s and 1980s. In addition to atrocities, the army carried out the “forced disappearance of hundreds,” according to a recent report in the Mexico City daily La Jornada .

Peña Nieto would put such forces in charge in cities and states deemed too corrupt or unsafe. It is no coincidence that the Mexican president announced his police state-plan the day after a telephone conference with US president Obama. Following the telephone call, a US government press spokesman used nearly the same phrase (“a tragic and barbaric crime”). One could expect that Peña received Obama’s backing on his police-state measures, and advice and support for measures already taken.

A week before, on Thursday November 20th, the police arbitrarily arrested 11 students in the wake of actions carried out by agent provocateurs (alleged “anarchists” throwing gasoline bombs at the police lines), that provided the pretext for a wholesale attack on the demonstration. The 11 students were denied legal counsel and whisked off to high security prisons in Nayarit and Veracruz, both far away from Mexico City. They are being charged with homicide, illegal associations and rioting. All were beaten after being arrested.

Administration officials gave a hypocritical assurance that “due process” is being observed. Several videos have been posted on the Internet that shows the random character of the arrests. Alejandro Maxwell, a Chilean graduate student, appears to have been nabbed by mistake after he had arrived late to the demonstration. Federal Attorney General Osorio Chong defended Maxwell’s arrest, accusing him of being one of the most violent of the group. Alberto Maxwell, Alejandro’s father, accused the Peña government of trying to make a case that his son’s nationality proves the connections of the Ayotzinapa demonstrators with international terrorism. His son was initially charged with terrorism, in addition to the other charges.

There is a parallel between the arrest of the 11 demonstrators and the police-state measures being carried out in Ferguson, Missouri. In both cases, peaceful protests against wanton murders and human rights abuses are being criminalized by the state.

The Dropping Price of Gold and Oil Is Leading to Martial Law and World War III

The Common Sense Show
by Dave Hodges

You will never see this math problem showing up in the Common Core curriculum. When adds the plummeting price of oil, to the falling price of gold, what does one get? The answer is “economic collapse” followed by martial law and World War III!

 

Both the Price of Crude Oil and the Oil Futures Market Are Crashing

Crude oil fell below $70 for the first time since June of 2010. On Thanksgiving, the WTI futures fell to a low of $68.90.  This represents 6% decline in a period cover ingthe last 24 hours. In fact, the price of crude oil is down over 25% in the last 50 trading days.

WTI Chart

 

According to Business Insider, the recent slide in oil prices has been attributed, among other things, to a global supply glut. At least, that is what the Federal Reserve would have you believe. It is not the truth, but that is what the Federal Reserve would have you believe and they own the media and Wall Street, so good luck trying to get confirming information.

Why is the Federal Reserve so concerned with the price of oil? And why should you be so concerned with the price of oil? This article will answer both of these questions.

The Petrodollar Scam

petrodollar scam

Why is the price of oil falling like a rock? The short answer is that the price of oil and the value of the dollar are joined at the hip. Because, until just recently, if a nation wanted to buy oil, they had to buy Federal Reserve dollars first in order to complete the purchase. IF a destabilization in either the price oil or the value of the dollar occurs, both will collapse. And the BRICS already invested in gold,  and they will be there to pick up the pieces under the leadership of Putin. 

Towards the end of World War II, the Petrodollar replaced the gold standard in the United States. The United States has debt, crushing debt, which makes the former Weimar Republic look solvent by comparison. Unfortunately, the United States abandoned the gold standard a long time ago.  What then keeps our economy from degenerating into a trading and bartering society resulting from a collapsed dollar?

The United States’ previously good economic fortune is due solely to the fact that the world must use the dollar, the Petrodollar if you will, in order to make their nation’s individual oil purchases and this provides the only source of backing for the U.S. dollar that the Federal Reserve requires in order to somewhat sustain our back breaking debt that the banker occupied United States government has passed along to the American taxpayer in the form of bailouts. Despite the economic pain associated with the enormous debt caused by the Wall Street contrived Ponzi schemes associated with the now infamous derivatives, America’s economy has proven to be very resilient. However, if the artificial global dollar demand, made possible by the Petrodollar system, were ever to crumble, our days of economic dominance would abruptly end and the resulting economic chaos would be followed by the need to impose martial law on a starving public. Again, tens of millions of Americans will die in this scenario.

The Last Great American Garage Sale Before the Collapse of the Dollar

Unfortunately for every man, woman and child in America, that day of economic reckoning is quickly approaching. Two years ago, China commenced buying Iranian oil in gold. India has followed suit, as have the Russians. The days of the Petrodollar are numbered and therefore, so is the only source of backing of our dollar. The BRICS are trading with each other in gold and forsaking the dollar all together. Get out the shovels, it is time to bury the dollar. Have you and your family prepared for the collapse of the dollar and ultimately the collapse of society?

mersLike most Americans who have awakened from their slumber, I came to realize that the Federal Reserve Board is responsible for most of the evil perpetrated in the world and I personally loathe the organization. It is hard not to cheer the fact that the days of Federal Reserve Board dominance may be coming to an abrupt end. Yet, I would advise against popping the corks on the champagne bottles because, like it or not, America’s economic fortunes are tied to the health of the dollar and our precious dollar has come down with a terminal economic case of the Asian flu. If the Federal Reserve crashes and burns, so will everything that you have ever worked for.

If the Federal Reserve collapses over this impending crisis, the resulting economic holocaust will make the United States unrecognizable within a very short time and your personal fortunes will sink right along with these notorious robber barons who are feverishly involved in stealing as many home mortgages as possible through schemes like the robosigners of MERS. The Federal Reserve, the same people who perpetrated the MERS fraud, is also involved in buying up mortgage backed securities in an attempt to garner the lion’s share of the housing industry. And if you didn’t hear, the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals made it legal for the banks to steal your deposits. As I reported on November 16, 2014, the G20 nations declared that your bank deposits are no longer considered money, thus, making it far easier to steal in the midst of a banking collapse which is coming.  Don’t think for a moment that these events are not contrived by the bankers to get as much as they can, of the public’s assets, in as short of time as possible in this time of crisis. The banksters clearly know what is coming and they are in the process of stealing your assets in order to soften the blow of a collapsing dollar and their “Golden Parachute” will be awarded to them courtesy of your hard earned assets.

Surely, there must be something that can be done to avert this coming train wreck? Can’t the United States simply employ economic sanctions and force Iran and the other BRICS to their collective knees?

If the United States seeks to reverse the trend which seeks the abandonment of the Petrodollar system, war seems to be the only option left to the bankers. Logic would seem to dictate that the military option will be employed and therefore, it should be a simple matter to ratchet up the rhetoric and seize the Iranian oil fields and force capitulation. However, this would also involve breaking the back of Russia, China and India and that would have to involve a devastating third world war.

If one does not think that the recent events related to the death and subsequent riots caused by Michael Brown’s death are not related, think again. The government is practicing for the implementation for martial law in anticipation for the total collapse of the dollar. Also, the events in Ferguson are a great distraction for what is going on economically. For that matter, so is the Department of Homeland Security with the acquisition of 2.2 billion rounds of ammunition and 2700 armored personnel carriers are also signs of what is coming. The firing of American military leaders at an unprecedented rate, is also related. So is the firing of Chuck Hagel as the Defense Secretary for his refusal to go along with Obama’s martial law plans. Obama is getting rid of all military leadership that is not on board with the collapse of the American economy and the installation of the new American management team, otherwise known as the New World Order.

I want to emphasize that the confiscation of America’s wealth is already underway in earnest. It is not a tomorrow thing, it is a yesterday thing.

Besides stealing America’s personal assets related to retirement accounts, bank accounts, home mortgages, etc., one would think that the elite would be looking for a place to invest their assets. For when the smoke clears, where will the elite have placed their investments? After the coming collapse, the elite will own nearly all personal and business real estate and personal assets through confiscation. In short, the elite are putting their new found assets into various forms of gold, hard gold, the kind of gold one can touch with their greedy little hands.

You might be confused on why gold prices are falling so dramatically. Well, it is all part of the plan.

 

Gold Comex Prices Dropping Like a Rock

gold comex

According to NASDAQ. Gold Comex prices have been dropping like a lead balloon.  One could look at gold a million different ways, but let’s suffice it to say that gold prices are far lower, dropping like a rock and the investment into gold looks risky. However, the opposite is actually true. The drop in prices does not mean that you should not buy gold. In fact, if one thinks that the dollar is on life support, now is the time to buy gold and one should buy a lot of it.

The above chart is largely reflective of the direction of the value of gold. The elite are trying to accomplish three goals:

1) Keep the price of gold artificially low so that the elite can afford to buy as much as they can.

2) Buy as much gold as they can for the purpose of being able to economically compete with the BRICS after the collapse of the dollar.

3) Survive the post-apocalyptic period that is coming following the collapse of the dollar, the implementation of martial law followed by World War III.  In other words, gold is a long term investment strategy.

These three goals were acted upon by Goldman Sachs in March of 2013. At that time, the market clearly showed signs of mass manipulation by the Globalists.  The best proof that the globalists have been manipulating the price of gold comes from “Goldman Sachs (who) reportedly told their clients in March of 2013 that they recommend initiating a short COMEX gold position.”  This was designed to get the public out of gold investments and to open the door to the elite hording the same asset. As an aside, whenever Goldman Sachs shorts anything,  we better collectively watch out because something really bad is about to happen.  Previous Goldman Sachs “shortings” led to 9/11 and the Gulf Oil Explosion in 2010.

The manipulation of gold not only lowers the price of gold for the elite but it is their final investment hedge against the coming collapse of the dollar; it also discourages the average person from making the same investment because of the artificial conditions leading to the dropping prices. Further, less healthy nations, from an economic standpoint (i.e. the BRICS) will feel their gold investment destabilize under the weight of falling gold prices, while the elite can whether the storm.

Meanwhile, welcome to the new United States of Goldman Sachs. 

goldman sachs flag

Conclusion

One should buy gold, as much as one can afford. No you cannot eat gold, so you better have enough survival resources (God, guns, ammunition, food, water and neighborhood allies) on hand to whether the coming storms.

However, there are two storms that we are all going to have to survive and they are martial law and World War III. Putin knows that the Federal Reserve/Goldman Sachs gold strategy is threatening his economic viability as Russia leads the charge to a return to the gold standard. Wars have been fought over lesser things and World War III is coming and Putin is preparing for this eventuality.  This will be the topic of the next part in this series.

US Police State Violence Behind Ferguson Protests

Strategic Culture
by Finian CUNNINGHAM

US President Barack Obama and other American leaders are swift to condemn the widespread street violence that has erupted following a grand jury decision to not prosecute a white police officer for the killing of black teenager Michael Brown.

«We are a nation based on the rule of law, so we need to accept that this was the special jury’s decision to make», said Obama.

Police officers this week reportedly came under heavy gunfire in the town of Ferguson, Missouri, and many businesses and vehicles were torched overnight after a panel of jurors concluded that there was no case against officer Darren Darren over the fatal shooting of 18-year-old Brown on August 9. 

The town – a mainly black suburb of St Louis – has been rocked by protests over the past three months, with protesters complaining that the police have routinely used heavy-handed tactics to clear the streets. Now following the grand jury ruling on Monday, frustrations have boiled over into arson, looting and other attacks on private property. 

Across America there have been large demonstrations in support of the Brown family in cities from New York to Los Angeles, including Washington DC, Chicago, Philadelphia, Oakland and Seattle. So far, these protests outside Ferguson have remained peaceful, but there is a fear among authorities that violence could flare up elsewhere.

Last week, Missouri governor Jay Nixon declared a state of emergency and called in National Guard troopers to back up local police in anticipation of civil unrest. 

The tense situation has similarities to the Rodney King case. The beating up of African-American King as he lay on a street by four white police officers sparked the LA riots back in 1992, which led to over 50 deaths, thousands of business premises being razed and up to $1 billion in property damage before US Marines and the National Guard finally restored order.

This week the Mayor of St Louis, Francis Slay, deplored the surge in street violence. Like Obama, the mayor called for people to protest peacefully and to advocate for political change with their voices alone. 

Such advice of respecting the rule of law and non-violence sounds hollow to many across America, particularly among the black community. For too many Americans, there is no rule of law when police forces can use excessive lethal violence with impunity. 

The circumstances of Michael Brown’s killing are hotly disputed. Several witnesses say the youth was gunned down by officer Wilson while he had his hands up during an altercation on a street in broad daylight. The St Louis County prosecutor Robert McCulloch acknowledged those witness accounts when he read out the jury’s decision earlier this week not to press charges.

«Some witnesses maintained their original statement that Mr Brown had his hands in the air and was not moving toward the officer when he was shot», McCulloch said. «Several witnesses said Mr Brown did not raise his hands at all or that he raised them briefly and then dropped them and then turned toward Officer Wilson, who then fired several rounds.»

The policeman’s account is markedly different. He claims that Brown first assaulted him and was trying to grab his gun. Wilson says he fired his weapon because he felt his life was in danger. 

However, what is not in dispute is that Brown was unarmed and the officer fired off a total of 12 rounds, hitting the teenager at least six times. The victim’s body was left lying in the street for nearly five hours before being taken away. 

To many observers those circumstances at least deserve a criminal trial to ascertain whether the homicide was justified. 

But the bigger picture is that this case is seen as just one more in a litany of lethal violence used by police or armed vigilantes against black men. 

Two years ago, another black teenager, Trayvon Martin was shot dead in Miami, Florida, by a white self-styled neighbourhood security man. His killer was acquitted in court on the grounds that he was acting in self-defence, even though the victim was unarmed.

A month after Brown’s death in Ferguson, 43-year-old Eric Garner was killed when he was accosted by police officers in New York City on suspicion that he was selling cigarettes illegally on the streets. Garner died after he was manhandled in a banned chokehold position. His death was captured on a cell phone video and caused public outrage at the police barbarity.

Then last weekend, two days before the grand jury announced its verdict not to charge the police officer in the Brown case, a 12-year-old black youth was shot dead in Cleveland, Ohio. Tamir Rice was playing with his sister and friends in a playground with a toy gun when armed police arrived following a 911 call from a bystander. The officers shot the boy after he reached into his trouser waistband in an innocent attempt to hand over the fake pistol. 

US federal figures show that on average two black men are killed every week by police violence. While the African-American community represents 13 per cent of the US population, nearly 25 per cent of all police homicides are perpetrated against blacks. Civil rights campaigners point out that the official figures probably underestimate the actual death rate.

Obama acknowledged the deep racial issue of these killings. «This is not just an issue for Ferguson; this is an issue for America. We have made enormous progress in race relations over the course of the past several decades – I have witnessed that in my own life – and to deny that progress is to deny America’s capacity for change», he said. «But what is also true is that there are still problems and that communities of colour are not making these problems up.»

Michael Brown’s family said in a statement: «We are profoundly disappointed that the killer of our child will not face the consequence of his actions.» Their attorney added: «They want the police to be held accountable, to treat us like Americans, too, so we can get equal justice. This system always allows police to hurt and kill our children.»

Police racism against American blacks is an undoubted part of the problem of lethal violence by law enforcement agencies. In Ferguson, where two-thirds of the 21,000 population are black, more than 90 per cent of the local police force is made up of white officers.

But the problem is not just white cop violence on African-Americans. It is part of a bigger concern of increasing police violence and militarisation of American law enforcement across the country. Again, federal figures show that the ratio of police homicides to overall crime incidents has increased by 75 per cent over the period from 1992 to 2012.

This is manifested in American police forces being increasingly armed with heavier and deadlier weapons, with many of the munitions being recycled from US military deployments overseas, in Afghanistan and Iraq. Police SWAT teams ride around in Humvees in US inner-cities as if they were in Kandahar or Sadr City.

In addition, American policing methods have increasingly taken on the form of military operations, responding to law enforcement encounters with excessive violence and draconian actions. The lockdown of Boston City and the blanket suspension of civil rights, such as no use of warrants for house raids, following the bombing of the marathon in April 2013 signalled a major shift towards police state powers. These draconian police powers, which can be traced to the post-9/11 invocation of anti-terror laws, have become replicated and routinised across the country.

Black communities are indeed bearing the brunt of this militaristic style of American policing, and there is an unequivocal racist element to it. 

Nevertheless, the wider issue is one of America being transformed into a fully-fledged police state, which goes hand in hand with deteriorating social conditions, rising poverty, racism and the generalised erosion of civil liberties, including state surveillance of private communications. 

The public concern is not just limited to the African-American community, but affects all ethnic groups. The protests underway across the US this week as a result of the Michael Brown case are notable for the multi-ethnic character of the protesters. Whites, as well as African-Americans and Latinos, are evidently galvanised by what they see as a particular gross miscarriage of justice in Ferguson. The skin colour of the victim is a factor, but a more general factor is how America has increasingly taken on the form of a police state, where police brutality and authoritarianism against all citizens is an ever-present, disturbing reality.

Obama and other civic leaders may be calling for restraint, rule of law and non-violence. To many American citizens such exhortation does not apply to them. Rather, as they see it, it should apply to the US state and its growing police powers.
