What Went Wrong in Charlottesville: At All Levels, Government Is Still the Problem

 

John Whitehead: Rutherford Institute

“In this present crisis, government is not the solution to our problem, government IS the problem.”—Ronald Reagan

Corruption. Graft. Intolerance. Greed. Incompetence. Ineptitude. Militarism. Lawlessness. Ignorance. Brutality. Deceit. Collusion. Corpulence. Bureaucracy. Immorality. Depravity. Censorship. Cruelty. Violence. Mediocrity. Tyranny.

These are the hallmarks of an institution that is rotten through and through.

What you smell is the stench of a dying republic. Our dying republic.

The American experiment in freedom is failing fast.

Through every fault of our own—our apathy, our ignorance, our intolerance, our disinclination to do the hard work of holding government leaders accountable to the rule of law, our inclination to let politics trump longstanding constitutional principles—we have been reduced to this sorry state in which we are little more than shackled inmates in a prison operated for the profit of a corporate elite.

We have been saddled with the wreckage of a government at all levels that no longer represents the citizenry, serves the citizenry, or is accountable to the citizenry.

We’re not the masters anymore.

It doesn’t matter whether you’re talking about the federal government, state governments, or local governing bodies: at all ends of the spectrum and every point in between, a shift has taken place.

“We the people” are not being seen, heard or valued.

We no longer count for much of anything beyond an occasional electoral vote and as a source of income for the government’s ever-burgeoning financial needs.

Everything happening at the national level is playing out at the local level, as well: the violence, the militarization, the intolerance, the lopsided governance, and an uneasy awareness that the citizenry have no say in how their communities are being governed.

Police in two states use hospitals to take motorists blood without a warrant


I long ago came to the conclusions that “police” are just low IQ criminal thugs that wear blue uniforms. Nothing I see, or experience changes my mind in the least. Furthermore they operate under the Satanic principle of “moral relativism“. A major platform of the church of Satan.  Police claim to have no responsibility for what they do under the principle of Sovereign Immunity, because  policing  is built upon a plank of the church of Satan: moral relativism.
Think for a moment that our country was founded upon the principle that “all men are created equal”,  yet police departments are based upon the abominable idea that all men are not created equal.

Police state America has found a disturbing new way to forcibly take motorists blood without a warrant.

Law enforcement is using private hospitals to do their dirty work.

Earlier this year, I reported that police in Oregon were forcing hospitals to take motorists blood without a warrant.

I thought it would end there and the courts would call the practice illegal, I could not have been more wrong.

Nervous About Traffic Stops? I Am. You Should Be, Too


MFP Commentary:
This hits close to home. A few months back I experienced one of the most terrifying events in my life when a road pirate from the Seymour MO  police department stopped me for an expired tag.  (An offficer Mullins)  Most of the physical injuries took a week to heal, but I will be dealing with the psychological damages for a long time to come.  Rape victims often experience depression, and need counseling. Do not think for a moment that this was not a rape of my rights,  my humanity, and my person. That was exactly what it was. Some day I will be able to write about it.

If you have been reading this paper then you also know that I was assaulted by a business owner in Seymour a month back and the  predictably  incompetent police department has not even contacted me concerning their so called investigation.   IMHO if they can’t steal someone’s money, or get an illegitimate felony bust, they are not interested. Protecting your rights is the very last things that police departments are interested in.  I have had conversations with the past 2 mayors of Seymour, and suggested that they either get rid of the police department or at the very least replace it with a contracted private police department. ( and here) As it stands all police departments stand behind the principle of “Sovereign  Immunity” which is clearly a form of moral relativism, one of the major platforms of the Church of Satan. That is a fact, not a wild unsubstantiated claim.  If we are to take the Declarations claim that “all men are created equal” ,  a cornerstone that this country was founded upon, we need to recognize that having a class of men with more rights than others is both immoral and evil on it’s face.

It was VERY telling that Mullins  like a sexual predator that has just finished raping a  victim,  asked me with the leading question: “Why don’t you like cops?”  Isn’t that almost the same thing that rapists ask their victims?  i.e. “Did you enjoy it?”

It’s not that I don’t like cops like Rapist-Mullins.  It’s that I don’t like criminals that violate my rights.  Just like at Auschwitz, a Legislator  putting words on paper do not excuse  your committing crimes.

Quit resisting.”—Cops yell at compliant young man who was thrown to the ground, beaten, arrested and hospitalized for severe injuries to his face and arm, allegedly in retaliation for “resisting arrest” by driving to a safe, well-lit area before submitting to a traffic stop for a broken tail light

We’ve all been there before.

You’re driving along and you see a pair of flashing blue lights in your rearview mirror. Whether or not you’ve done anything wrong, you get a sinking feeling in your stomach.

You’ve read enough news stories, seen enough headlines, and lived in the American police state long enough to be anxious about any encounter with a cop that takes place on the side of the road.

For better or worse, from the moment you’re pulled over, you’re at the mercy of law enforcement officers who have almost absolute discretion to decide who is a threat, what constitutes resistance, and how harshly they can deal with the citizens they were appointed to “serve and protect.”

This is what I call “blank check policing,” in which the police get to call all of the shots.

So if you’re nervous about traffic stops, you have every reason to be. — Read More

 

 

Patriots and Protesters Should Take a Knee for the Constitution

Short Version 


Both the NFL and the Flag worshippers are way off base. The flag  stands for the principles in the Declaration and the Constitution,  something that both the NFP players and the “patriots” demonstrably urinate on, do not understand, and do not follow.  If you do not understand this take a look at the constitution course by Michael Badnarik on the  video resource page.

The following article  is an excellent analysis of this situation….

“Seems like in the past 15 years or so the idea of patriotism has changed some. More polarized, more tied to political or ideological views. I’ve never seen patriotism or the flag connected to either; I see the flag more as the symbol of a nation that allows the freedom to express those ideas. That alone deserves my respect.”— Macy Moore, U.S. Marine

By all means, let’s talk about patriotism and President Trump’s call for “respect for our Country, Flag and National Anthem.”

At a time when the American flag adorns everything from men’s boxers and women’s bikinis to beer koozies, bandannas and advertising billboards (with little outcry from the American public), and the National Anthem is sung by Pepper the Parrot during the Puppy Bowl, this conveniently timed outrage over disrespect for the country’s patriotic symbols rings somewhat hollow, detracts from more serious conversations that should be taking place about critical policy matters of state, and further divides the nation and ensures that “we the people” will not present a unified front to oppose the police state.

First off, let’s tackle this issue of respect or lack thereof for patriotic symbols…..Read more

How to End the Korea Crisis

written by ron paul

 

 

The descent of US/North Korea “crisis” to the level of schoolyard taunts should be remembered as one of the most bizarre, dangerous, and disgraceful chapters in US foreign policy history.

President Trump, who holds the lives of millions of Koreans and Americans in his hands, has taken to calling the North Korean dictator “rocket man on a suicide mission.” Why? To goad him into launching some sort of action to provoke an American response? Maybe the US president is not even going to wait for that. We remember from the Tonkin Gulf false flag that the provocation doesn’t even need to be real. We are in extremely dangerous territory and Congress for the most part either remains asleep or is cheering on the sabre-rattling.

Now we have North Korean threats to detonate hydrogen bombs over the Pacific Ocean and US threats to “totally destroy” the country.

We are told that North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un is a “madman.” That’s just what they said about Saddam, Gaddafi, Assad, and everyone else the neocons target for US military action. We don’t need to be fans of North Korea to be skeptical of the war propaganda delivered by the mainstream media to the benefit of the neocons and the military industrial complex.

Where are the cooler heads in Washington to tone down this war footing?

Making matters worse, there is very little understanding of the history of the conflict. The US spends more on its military than the next ten or so countries combined, with thousands of nuclear weapons that can destroy the world many times over. Nearly 70 years ago a US-led attack on Korea led to mass destruction and the death of nearly 30 percent of the North Korean population. That war has not yet ended.

Why hasn’t a peace treaty been signed? Newly-elected South Korean president Moon Jae-in has proposed direct negotiations with North Korea leading to a peace treaty. The US does not favor such a bilateral process. In fact, the US laughed off a perfectly sensible offer made by the Russians and Chinese, with the agreement of the North Koreans, for a “double freeze” – the North Koreans would suspend missile launches if the US and South Korea suspend military exercises aimed at the overthrow of the North Korean government.

So where are there cooler heads? Encouragingly, they are to be found in South Korea, which would surely suffer massively should a war break out. While US Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, was bragging that the new UN sanctions against North Korea would result in a near-complete blockade of the country (an act of war), the South Korean government did something last week that shocked the world: it announced an eight million dollar humanitarian aid package for pregnant mothers and infant children in North Korea. The US and its allies are furious over the move, but how could anyone claim the mantle of “humanitarianism” while imposing sanctions that aim at starving civilians until they attempt an overthrow of their government?

Here’s how to solve the seven-decade old crisis: pull all US troops out of the Korean peninsula; end all military exercises on the North Korean border; encourage direct talks between the North and South and offer to host or observe them with an international delegation including the Russians and Chinese, which are after all Korea’s neighbors.

The schoolyard insults back and forth between Donald Trump and Kim Jong-Un are not funny. They are in fact an insult to all of the rest of us! ….. Original Story

 

 

Freedom Is a Myth: We Are All Prisoners of the Police State’s Panopticon Village


What an apt analogy to the contemporary police state. Do you think that the screen writer,  perhaps like George Orwell,  had some inside information?

The one thing I got out of this article was an old TV series to check out. So far I have not found it for free, but here is the link at Amazon for the 1967 TV series: “The Prisoner” .

John White Head of FEE

 “We’re run by the Pentagon, we’re run by Madison Avenue, we’re run by television, and as long as we accept those things and don’t revolt we’ll have to go along with the stream to the eventual avalanche…. As long as we go out and buy stuff, we’re at their mercy… We all live in a little Village. Your Village may be different from other people’s Villages, but we are all prisoners.”— Patrick McGoohan

First broadcast in Great Britain 50 years ago, The Prisoner—a dystopian television series described as “James Bond meets George Orwell filtered through Franz Kafka”—confronted societal themes that are still relevant today: the rise of a police state, the freedom of the individual, round-the-clock surveillance, the corruption of government, totalitarianism, weaponization, group think, mass marketing, and the tendency of humankind to meekly accept their lot in life as a prisoner in a prison of their own making.

Perhaps the best visual debate ever on individuality and freedom, The Prisoner (17 episodes in all) centers around a British secret agent who abruptly resigns only to find himself imprisoned, monitored by militarized drones, and interrogated in a mysterious, self-contained, cosmopolitan, seemingly tranquil retirement community known only as the Village. The Village is an idyllic setting with parks and green fields, recreational activities and even a butler.

HIGH-RANKING CIA AGENT BLOWS WHISTLE ON DEEP STATE, SHADOW GOVT

NSA and CIA at the top of the shadow government apparatus


Believe t or not not everything that Mr Shipp has to say has already been released by others. What he does is  connect the dots, and present it all in one place.

~MFP


A CIA whistleblower, Kevin Shipp, has emerged from the wolves den to expose the deep state and the shadow government which he calls two entirely separate entities.

“The shadow government controls the deep state and manipulates our elected government behind the scenes,” Shipp warned in a recent talk at a Geoengineeringwatch.org conference.

Shipp had a series of slides explaining how the deep state and shadow government functions as well as the horrific crimes they are committing against U.S. citizens.

Some of the revelations the former CIA anti-terrorism counter intelligence officer revealed included that “Google Earth was set up through the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency and InQtel.” Indeed he is correct, the CIA and NGA owned the company Google acquired, Keyhole Inc., paying an undisclosed sum for the company to turn its tech into what we now know as Google Earth. Another curious investor in Keyhole Inc. was none other than the venture capital firm In-Q-Tel run by the CIA according to a press release at the time.

Shipp also disclosed that the agency known as the Joint Special Ops Command (JSOC) is the “president’s secret army” which he can use for secret assassinations, overturning governments and things the American people don’t know about.

“OATH KEEPERS” is a disgrace to the liberty movement:

Just got banned from the Oath Keepers forum for judiciously and respectfully exercising my free speech. I really don’t see any difference between the way Oath Keepers  stomps free speech in their forum (they are showing  their control freak cop mentality that seems to predominate  at  Oath Keepers.)  the same way Antifa does when they attend a protest.
 

Oath Keepers  has supported, (by their silence) and looked the other way as to the evil that cops and the troops commit. That is bad enough, but they go even further  and  take punitive actions against anyone that questions their world view or their gods..  Doing  so  gets an Antifa like response (name calling i.e. a troll)  from them with no discussion or response allowed. Like Antifa they don’t seem to be intelligent enough to discuss the topic.  Yelling “troll”  and  banning  free speech is so much more convenient, than actually responding and discussing  an issue.   –  Just the cop like “I am in control and you are not behavior”.   “How dare one of the serfs question either of our gods: Cops and Soldiers!  Asking questions and thinking makes you a troll and we don’t talk to trolls.”

Oath Keepers looks  a lot like  the infantile thuggish  Antifa to me in this case.

 
I have long thought that Stewart Rhodes was a pretender, and fake, along with most of Oath Keepers ‘s members. They would not know lady liberty if  she hit them up side the head. If she did they would call her a troll, and  promptly shoot her.

Criminal usurpers in MO Department of Motor Vehicles strike again

I just (tried)  to pay the tax on a vehicle here in MO.
This is wrong, and evil on so many levels…….

First of all if you pay taxes yearly on something that you “own”, then by any honest analysis you don’t  really own that item. You just rent it from the state.  This is the  American version of the first plank of the communist manifesto in case you don’t recognize it.

You know you are dealing with a criminal organization when you are forced to pay a $7 “handling charge”  for a $51 tax bill.   That is 13%, and from the looks of it, it is going to a private sub-contracted company.  (probably run by a friend or family member of one of the psychopaths in Jeff City that hoisted this tax upon us) No one else in the semi-free market does anything approaching this level of screwing over the  customer with excessive charges. (because they don’t have a government provided monopoly like the DMV)  But government has a monopoly on the use of force, and  knows that all laws ( and regulations) always end in a silent,  “or we will kill you if you don’t comply”.     If they were not a group of violent thugs  that always threaten, and use violence (the very definition of terrorism) do they seriously think anyone would put up with their $7 extortion fee, in the free market?

The entire DMV in MO originated as a means of political cronyism where friends of politicans would be granted the monopolistic ownership of a state motor vehicle location.   (You can read about that history in this book.)They are  as dirty as mud,  illegitimate, incompetent,  and corrupt as hell IMHO.

MO DMV fulfills a government  function, but at the same time they do not want to be bound by government responsibilities such as not trampling the first amendment.  Fact of the matter is quite  the opposite, they post signs on the wall that they can eject anyone for any reason, including you exercising your free speech.  I know about this because I was ejected  by the the incompetent boobs at the Marshfield DMV.   I was ejected, and threatened with  police involvement because  I was  exercising my first amendment rights by verbally objecting to them stealing over $250 for a bogus “late fee” on a  small utility trailer worth about$300.  They took that money, and then kicked me out before they would sell me plates.  It took 2 months, and hours of my time but I did get my plates, and  a full refund on the theft.

The Marschfield   DMV office IMHO was guilty of violating USC title 18 sections 241 & 242 ( violation of civil rights under color of law) and should, in a just world, be prosecuted by the Feds.

One would think that the parasitic criminal class would be happy with stealing over 50% of what each, and every one of us make. (They are in the process of killing the golden goose by greed IMHO) The founders went to war with their government, and were willing to kill them for  tax’s  of less than 5%.

Jefferson predicted that the blood of patriots, and tyrants would flow every 20 years to keep the tyrants in check.  What happened? We are literal slaves to  a criminal government, that “allow” us to keep less than half of what we make, and yearly strive to increase that percentage. Yet we do little other than complain…. “I am fed up, mad as hell and am not going to take it any more.” How about you?

View post on imgur.com

FWIW the rape was not done at this point. Not only do they steal most of what we make, that is not good enough for the psychopaths.  They then proceeded to steal more time from you (in addition to the time needed to pay their taxes) they want you to have property tax receipts, current insurance card, and safety inspection.  This could easily take half of my day to locate all of this.  We are treated by the DMV  like a bunch of serfs that they own, and can make us jump through an infinite number of hoops, in order to exercise a God given right! (right to travel)…. It looks like I am going to be further stolen from in having to drive to 2 different counties, and spend another  good part of a day to pay  this extortion to the DMV.  It seems as if they are not happy to  only extort money from you, they have to make you grovel, and  jump through hoops like we were a pack of trained monkeys that exist only  as walking wallets for their financial wants.  This from “our government employees”.
I for one find the current state of affairs disgusting and intolerable.

Let’s Make America Free Again: 230 Years After the Constitution, We’re Walking a Dangerous Road

By John W. Whitehead
September 11, 2017

John Whitehead

Ironically, during the same week that we mark the 16th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, we find ourselves commemorating the 230th anniversary of the U.S. Constitution.

While there has been much to mourn about the loss of our freedoms in the years since 9/11, there has been very little to celebrate. Indeed, we have gone from being a nation that took great pride in serving as a model of a representative democracy to being a model of how to persuade a freedom-loving people to march in lockstep with a police state.

What began with the passage of the USA Patriot Act in the wake of the 9/11 attacks has snowballed into the eradication of every vital safeguard against government overreach, corruption and abuse.

Since then, we have been terrorized, traumatized, and tricked into a semi-permanent state of compliance. The bogeyman’s names and faces change over time, but the end result remains the same: our unquestioning acquiescence to anything the government wants to do in exchange for the phantom promise of safety and security.

All the while, the Constitution has been steadily chipped away at, undermined, eroded, whittled down, and generally discarded to such an extent that what we are left with today is but a shadow of the robust document adopted more than two centuries ago. Most of the damage, however, has been inflicted upon the Bill of Rights—the first ten amendments to the Constitution—which historically served as the bulwark from government abuse.

Set against a backdrop of government surveillance, militarized police, SWAT team raids, asset forfeiture, eminent domain, overcriminalization, armed surveillance drones, whole body scanners, stop and frisk searches, roving VIPR raids and the like—all sanctioned by Congress, the White House, the courts and the like—a recitation of the Bill of Rights would understandably sound more like a eulogy to freedoms lost than an affirmation of rights we truly possess.

We can pretend that the Constitution, which was written to hold the government accountable, is still our governing document. However, the reality we must come to terms with is that in the America we live in today, the government does whatever it wants, freedom be damned.

Here is what it means to live under the Constitution today.

The First Amendment is supposed to protect the freedom to speak your mind, assemble and protest nonviolently without being bridled by the government. It also protects the freedom of the media, as well as the right to worship and pray without interference. In other words, Americans should not be silenced by the government. To the founders, all of America was a free speech zone.
