Special Report:
Many people around the country are still waiting anxiously, day in and day out, to see if Jade Helm 15 is really a nefarious “martial law” drill, or just another military exercise that is routine, but blown a bit out of proportion. We do know some things for sure, one of them being that the military — SOCOM specifically, has not been exactly transparent as to what Jade Helm 15 really is.

As we reported a couple of days ago, it seems the military drills for “unconventional warfare” and the training on American soil to ready soldiers for “urban environments,” although that very thought is scary enough for some, is really just a cover up for a much larger agenda. The agenda, is the Artificial Intelligence “takeover” of the US military.

We also know that the military straight up told the media in general, nobody will get close enough to see what is going on as the drills take place, and that soldiers will also be “blending in society. There really is no doubt that Jade helm is really two-prong, and there is no question that the “urban environment” training they are partaking in, is desensitizing a select group of men to operate on American soil if need be, even if that isn’t the stated mission. Many people do agree that US soldiers wouldn’t take orders to execute gun confiscation, military arrests, and the like, and i do as well, however the provision that “legalizes” this in the NDAA, coupled with the likelihood that the 1,200 or so men involved in this drill were selected for a reason, shows this is more than possible. Do I think the exercise will “go live” or something will happen to trigger our worst fears? No. I do however believe that if people want to monitor JH-15, that is their right and their prerogative.  (more…)

239 years ago the Founding Fathers declared independence from the oppressive Crown of England. At that time, the Crown owned the land, and the 13 colonies of America were Crown Colonies. However, the tyranny from a foreign government as the colonists saw it, was beginning to become more than enough to take sitting down.

In the decade preceding the Revolutionary War, Britain’s unemployment levels and beggars in the streets grew, which caused King George to do what tyrants love to do, and that is create new laws and taxes. This was felt immediately in the Colonies. Not long after the Sugar Act was passed, the British Parliament passed the Currency Act of 1764. In short, the Currency Act outlawed the Colonial Script, the money issued by local governments which successfully helped the Colonies’ economies grow. Small wealth accumulated during the time of the Colonial Script, along with the growth of small businesses.

The Colonies though, took a haircut of 2 Colonial Scripts for 1 British pound, once the Currency Act was passed. This deeply troubled the Colonists, and brought them one step closer to the Declaration of Independence.

As soon as the quartering of British troops became policy, essentially forcing Colonists to pay for their own enslavement; the minds of men sparked with flames of revolutionary thinking. The Stamp Act in a nutshell stripped the Colonists of ever truly owning property, on top of the multiple taxes it created on top of the already unaffordable tax rate, (which by the way is where the term taxation without representation comes from) and now British Soldiers were enforcers for the King with no-knock warrants and Kangaroo Courts.

This sounds and looks familiar you say? The Crown self destructed as far as keeping the Colonies part of England, as the high taxes, troops on the streets, rapid unemployment, and predatory Central banks from a foreign power created the climate for revolution. Are we not there?

We have reached the point where police in America have become enforcers for the IRS, and in turn enforce and collect for the government as a whole. No knock raids, police [and military] are on the streets, and of course Central banking has been plundering the United States for 102 years. It is also true, that the climate for a revolution is ripe, and some may say it has started. (more…)

Have you ever heard of Democide? My WordPress dictionary certainly hasn’t, but I added it for safe keeping because something tells me I’ll use it again. Democide, in short is the  murder of any person or people by their government(s). This can broken down into three different types, all including death, which are genocide, politicide, and mass murder. According to Political Scientist R.J. Rummel, who sort-of resurrected the term due to governments psychopathic, systematic extermination of men worldwide, Democide passed war as the leading cause of non-natural death in the 20th century.

Government in the 20th and 21st century has become purely authoritarian. Now, for the sake of argument lets say authoritarian government and democratic government are not synonymous. Does it really matter? The fact is, whether under authoritarianism or democratic rule, 260 million+ people have been killed by governments. Synonymous or not it makes no difference, as democratic systems see politicians as puppets controlled by the same authoritarian autocrats atop the worldwide plutocracy. To put it in perspective, in 2014 the United States population was at 318 million people. Considering what some say is conservative number, in the past 100 years alone government has killed nearly the entire population of America.

Also read: Do The Police Cause High Crime?

Early last week, a deadly mass shooting in Charleston North Carolina left nine people dead, including a State Senator. Since then, the media has called for an end to the “rebel flag,” otherwise known as the “Confederate Flag.” What is much more interesting though, is the painfully ridiculous report being spread across the National [corporate] news media, which when thoroughly examined and understood, is actually a disservice to the credibility of the media and the government.

The story is that “Homegrown Extremists are Tied to a Deadlier Toll than Jihadists in US Since 9/11.” There are several reasons why this statistic (if you want to call it that) is flat-out meaningless in the scope of things, and once again shows that the media-government cohesive relationship will push propaganda to fit their agenda even when its complete b.s.

Reason #1: The Invisible Fabricated Boogie Man!
First of all, the United States launched a global War on Terrorism. A war. A war that has cost a total of $1.7 Trillion of taxpayer money. A war basically created and funded by the United States itself, that many warned was not only unwinnable, but was fabricated and was only made worse by fighting it. This war led to the PATRIOT ACT, an increase of wiretapping both domestically and foreign, the creation of the TSA, and a so-called “secured border.” Shouldn’t the numbers of deaths by Jihadists (as we know) be that low anyway? To conclude, even with the creation of Al Qaeda and the further radicalization of Islamic terrorists, there were 69 attacks from 9/11 up to this point, with 26 deaths. A number that is basically useless, considering most cases were either known about and allowed to happen, unrelated directly to the war on terror, or carried out in a victim disarmament zone(Fort Hood). It’s a useless metric to compare to, considering you’re more likely to die from a slip and fall, than terrorism.

Reason #2: All Americans are Consider Terrorists!
President Bush really, really loved Americans! He loved us so much, that he figured he’d have to save us from ourselves by considering is all potential terrorists, with the PATRIOT ACT. Okay so the PAT ACT was a bit more vague than it’s predecessor, the ultimate in tyrannical law and pre-crime in battlefield America; the NDAA. More specifically, the NDAA ’12, ’13, and ’14 section 1021 and 1022(suspension of the writ of Habeas Corpus). These two sections essentially give the government the power to arrest, indefinitely detain, torture, disappear, and even kill and American citizen without trial. That is section 1021, and it is scary as hell considering the government doesn’t write laws for fun, they write the laws to execute them.

With all of this, it is no wonder there are more deaths from “domestic extremists,” as the term is not limited to just organized crime, or white supremacists. In post 9/11 America, even your local Organic food store or Farmers Market could be labeled as domestic terrorists, or at the very least treated as such. As the statistics used in the report, show banks robbery as a form of domestic extremism, and interestingly even though the Feds claimed the Charleston shooting was a “hate crime” rather than terrorism,(not that I don’t agree) the statistics show otherwise, listing the Charleston Church shooting as one of the accounts of domestic extremism. — Hey, anything to fit the Agenda of locking down the country and expanding the police state, right?

Reason #3: The Real Danger That Has Emerged
One may have to wonder if these so-called statistics, and numbers in this poll were deliberately done to draw attention away from real issues, real danger, real threats, and real problems in America. One of the present dangers Americans face on a day-to-day basis, which is statistically much, much more deadlier than Jihadist terror and so-called domestic terror combined. In fact, it is sad to say this domestic threat is statistically more dangerous and deadly than the war in the Middle East!

The American police state.

Since the figures we are using, (or should I say the government and the organizations that collect data and information or conduct polls are using), pertain to the day of 9/11 [terror attacks] up until the present time, we can see a horrible truth.

A truth the government does not want you to know, and the media ignores or blames on the increased availability and use of smartphones. The truth that, the police in 21st century (and prior) police state America, have killed more people in America, than soldiers that have died in Afghanistan. In fact, since 9/11 more than 5,000 Americans have been killed by the police, a number that could potentially be grossly underestimated. I say underestimated because conveniently, there are no official records or system to accurately track and account for citizens kill by police.

Read my report on a new system that tracks police killings created by The Guardian.

In fact, according to a recent report, you are 55 times more likely to be killed by a police officer than by a terrorist. Imagine that? It’s no wonder why the government doesn’t keep track of these numbers, because lets just be honest; being killed by police in America today is starting to sound more like being (KIA) killed in action. Sounds absolutely absurd, I know, but these are the facts, and the facts show that daily life in America is seemingly treated like a damn war-zone by the militarized police. — It doesn’t have anything to do with the transformation of not just the wording used to describe police and its policies, does it? — A peace officer is now a Law Enforcement Officer, with a policy of constant patrol, and revenue generating, constantly bothering non-violent Americans traveling down the road.

At one time, police were community oriented and were used for peace keeping, and investigating crimes after they were reported.

Not anymore.

Police encounters have increased exponentially and so has their use of force and intimidation; hiding behind every tree LOOKING for an opportunity to turn on the blue lights so they can aggressively speed down the street causing an even greater danger to the public, all in hopes to generate revenue for the state. Then, the most dangerous and life-threatening several minutes of your life occur once you have been pulled over, and are now involved in a police encounter where really, uninhibited and all out authority and force can be used against you with virtually no oversight or fear of repercussions for the officer.

This is the real threat. This is where the danger lies. Government has not ever, will not now, and will not ever investigate itself, nor will they ever relinquish the power they have acquired.  It is just a simple fact. So the next time somebody begins to parrot the disgusting and offensive fear porn generated by the corporate media, please make sure you show them the facts, and the facts show the Police are the ones who are actually tied to much, much more death than both Jihadists and “domestic terrorists” combined.

To conclude, I will leave you with this. — In 2015 alone, the police have killed a staggering 543 people, with 73 people killed in the month of June alone. To be fair, not every single death is unjustified, but this metric like many other the system uses to measure or calculate to receive its findings for each cased is unsound. The metric I’m referring to is what constitutes a “justifiable” killing at the hands of police? We have seen hundreds of cases of what appears to be a completely non-threatening or dangerous individual being beaten, choked, or shot to death, in which case the officer(s) were cleared of any wrongdoing. Justified. I can’t think of a more overt way of showing dominance and tyrannical rule over a people.

This is America, 2015. The question I have is, when will enough be enough?

|| 800 Years Ago Today, the Magna Carta Was Sealed ||

Today, Americans who get their news through Alternative Media Sources such as The Resistance Journalshave been made aware of a sweeping, nearly nationwide military exercise known as Jade Helm 15. In an email received, this is how the military describes Jade Helm:

The nature of warfare is always changing and U.S. Army Special Operations Command’s mission is to make certain the Army’s various Special Operations Forces are trained, equipped and organized to successfully conduct worldwide special operations in support of our nation’s interests,” Army Lt. Col. Mark Lastoria, a command spokesman, said. “Training exercise Jade Helm is going to assist our Special Operations Soldiers and leadership in refining the skills needed against an ever changing foreign threat.”


June 15, 2015 was not the original start date of Jade Helm 15, however many are reporting that the military for unknown reasons, began the drill/exercise a full month earlier.

There is some strange irony in that, my lads! (more…)

(UPDATE) – Join the Twitter storm tonight – Hashtag #legalizelemonade –Facebook Group for Twitter Storm

Permits. Similar to licenses, they grant you permission to do something that would otherwise be illegal. The State, being the almighty God’s that they are, grant you special permission with a fancy piece of paper. Of course that is if, and only if, you give them money first. It’s as if the act of handing over fiat currency (that isn’t even worth the paper it’s printed on) is the only way to get a permit, which in turn suddenly makes the lemonade stand acceptable. Do you follow me? (more…)
