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…)


Today, marks the 800 year anniversary of the signing of the Magna Carta. In America, we celebrate this day with Military drills that symbolize civil uprising, martial law, and enslavement.

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…)
