The truth about the Southern Confederacy, slave owners and why the south lost the Civil War

Now that our Confederate flag has been deemed un-American, illegal and an icon of slavery and oppression, it’s time that this proud Southern woman speak out on what really happened since I hail from a very old southern family who fought in the Civil War.

16565-Confederate-FlagAs a southerner I’ve been listening to lies and disinformation about the south my entire life and it’s time to put the entire true history about the south to rest once and for all.

Most Americans chose to believe that all southerners were merciless slave owners that brutalized Black Americans and in our language, it just ain’t so.

What most Americans fail to recognize is that most of the large plantations were owned by immigrant Jewish Americans that felt they deserved to keep their slave labor at any cost.  Remember it was Jewish slave ships that brought black Africans to America to force them into indentured servitude for a hefty profit.  Their ships were in service 24 hours a day.

According to writer Robert Rosen Jews enjoyed the “free air of Dixie.”

He writes –

FROM ABRAHAM LINCOLN’S ELECTION as president of the United States in November 1860, through the secession winter of 1860, to the bombardment of Fort Sumter in April 1861, Jewish Southerners from Virginia to Texas weighed their devotion to the Union and to their states. “A storm, vast and terrible, is impending,” Rabbi James K. Gutheim of New Orleans told his congregation. Some were the sons and daughters—indeed, the grandsons and the granddaughters—of Southerners born and bred in Dixie. Some were slaveholders. A very few were planters. Some were descended from Sephardic Jews whose ancestors had been expelled from Spain and Portugal in the year Columbus set sail for the Orient.

From Wikipedia –

Then Judah Philip Benjamin QC (August 11, 1811 – May 6, 1884) was a lawyer and politician who was a United States Senator from Louisiana, a Cabinet officer of the Confederate States and, after his escape to the United Kingdom at the end of the American Civil War, an English barrister. Benjamin was the first person professing the Jewish faith to be elected to the United States Senate, and the first Jew to hold a cabinet position in North America.

Benjamin’s view that slavery should continue was based in his belief that citizens had a right to their property as guaranteed by the Constitution. As Butler put it, “he could no more see that it was right for Northern people to rob him of his slave than it would be for him to connive at horse stealing”.[35] He avoided the arguments of some that the slaves were inferior beings, and that their position was ordained by God: Evans ascribes this to Benjamin not being raised as a slave-owner, but coming to it later in life.[36] Benjamin joined in a widespread view of white Southerners that the African American would not be ready for emancipation for many years, if ever. They feared that freeing the slaves would ruin many and lead to murders and rapes by the newly liberated of their former masters and mistresses. Such a massacre had been feared by Southerners since the Haitian Revolution, the violent revolt known as “Santo Domingo” in the South, in which the slaves of what became Haiti killed many whites and mulattoes in 1804 while gaining independence from French control.[37] When the anti-slavery book Uncle Tom’s Cabin was published in 1852, Benjamin spoke out against Harriet Beecher Stowe‘s portrayal. He said that slaves were for the most part well treated, and plantation punishments, such as whipping or branding, were more merciful than sentences of imprisonment that a white man might receive in the North for similar conduct.

The History of the Confederacy –

The Confederacy, when used within or in reference to North America, generally means the Confederate States of America. It is also called the Southern Confederacy and refers to 11 states that renounced their existing agreement with others of the United States in 1860–1861 and attempted to establish a new nation in which the authority of the central government would be strictly limited and the institution of slavery would be protected. Secession from the existing Union led to the American Civil War, a bloody, four-year struggle that left much of the South in ashes and ended its hope of creating a new confederacy of states on the North American continent.

Differences Between North and South

For at least three decades leading up to the schism the northern and southern regions of the United States had been growing farther apart. The North became increasingly industrialized and found a ready source of inexpensive labor in the swarms of European immigrants, particularly the Irish and Germans who came in large numbers during the potato famine in those countries. The North was more inclined toward having the federal government pay all or part of the costs of internal improvements such as canals, railroads, and lighthouses.

The South remained primarily agrarian and its large farms, or plantations, depended predominately on slave labor. It opposed federal money being spent for internal improvements because at the time tariffs were the primary source of federal income. High tariffs protected the industrial goods of the North but not the cotton and tobacco of the South, where the tariffs only raised the cost of imported goods Southerners depended on.

The slave-holding states of the South drew closer to each other and farther from their Northern brethren. They feared that if slavery were not permitted to expand into new territories acquired by the United States, the South and its concerns would lose political power in the nation’s capital. A new political party, the Republicans, wanted to prevent the spread of slavery beyond where it existed, and many Republicans were radical abolitionists hoping to end slavery everywhere in America. The election of Republican Abraham Lincoln to the presidency and the success of his party in the 1860 election was the catalyst that led Southern states to carry out what they had long threatened to do—leave the Union.

The Confederacy Established

South Carolina was the first to secede, on December 20, 1860, followed by Mississippi, Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana and Texas. On February 8, 1861, representatives of those states announced the formation of the Confederate States of America, with its capital at Montgomery, Alabama. Jefferson Davis of Mississippi—a Mexican War hero and former secretary of war—was chosen as president. His vice president was Alexander Stephens of Georgia, who had served in the U.S. House of Representatives.

After Lincoln called for 75,000 volunteers to suppress the Southern rebellion, Arkansas, Tennessee, North Carolina and Virginia also seceded and joined the Confederacy, except for 48 counties of western Virginia that broke away and formed the Union-loyal state of West Virginia. Non-states affiliated with the Confederacy were the Confederate Territory of Arizona and members of the Five Civilized Tribes in Indian Territory (Oklahoma). Once Virginia joined the Confederacy, the national government was transferred to the city of Richmond there.

The Confederate Constitution

The constitution of the Confederacy adopted March 11, 1861, was based on that of the United States—was, in fact, virtually the same document in most respects and often used the same language verbatim—but included provisions that specifically addressed some of the issues that had led to the North–South schism.

Among the differences, the president would serve a single, six-year term, rather than four years with the possibility of succeeding himself, and would have the power of line-item veto that would allow him to strike portions of bills passed by Congress while approving the rest of the bill. Members of the cabinet would be made non-voting members of Congress.

States’ Rights

To insure the rights of the individual states would take precedence over the power of the central government, the Confederate government could not levy protective tariffs; direct and capitation taxes and taxes on exports were restricted. The ability to make internal improvements was limited to matters regarding ports and harbors, lighthouses, and dredging rivers. The government of the Confederacy could not overrule the decisions of state courts. No consensus was ever reached about creating a Supreme Court or what form it would take, so none was ever established.

The states were permitted to maintain their own armies. They were given greater ability to amend the national constitution.

Treason would “consist only in levying war against (the Confederate States), or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort.”

Slavery in the Confederate Constitution

Article IX, Section 4 prohibited any law “denying or impairing the right of property in negro slaves”; sections 1 and 2 prohibited “The importation of Negroes of the African race from any foreign country other than the slave-holding States or Territories of the United States of America” and gave the Congress power to prohibit “the introduction of slaves from any State not a member of, or Territory not belonging to, this Confederacy.”

Article IV guaranteed the right of citizens to travel with their slaves and other property without risk of having their right of ownership impaired. No slave or other person held in service could become free as a result of escaping to another state. Any new territories were required to recognize slavery “as it now exists in the Confederate States.” Many Southerners expected to conquer and colonize Cuba and other states of the Caribbean and Central America.

Effects of the Confederate Constitution

By limiting the power of the central government, the founders of the Confederacy also limited its ability to make war. States could refuse use of their militia to the Confederate government and sometimes did if they felt the men were needed for defense at home. The constitution also severely restricted the government’s ability to raise money, a situation made more acute by the expense of war. Inflation soared, resulting in “bread riots” in many places, including the capital of Richmond.

On April 2, 1865, that capital fell to Union forces. President Davis and his cabinet fled with the treasury; he intended to reestablish the government west of the Mississippi, but on May 10 he was captured near Irwinville, Georgia.

The Confederacy had lasted barely four years. Whether it could have ultimately been successful had it won the war or if there had been no war is questionable. Even within its brief lifetime, some states of the Confederacy were already threatening to secede from it over dissatisfaction with the Davis Administration.

Now what the historians will not reveal is that the North had as many or more slaves than did the South.  In addition, President Lincoln was not the Abolitionist he was predominately portrayed as.  He believed in slavery utterly and did not want the institution to fade away.  I’m not saying that every southern slave-owner was a benevolent master because many were not, however, the media has described the black African suffering as all encompassing on a daily basis.  This kind of cruelty was few and far between and we have black Americans today that will attest to those facts besides loving the south and the confederacy.

What the southern confederacy was attempting to achieve is what we’re dealing with today. Asking for a limited government with the decency to stay our of their lives so that our privacy can be preserved.  The southerners were willing to outlaw slavery and deal with freemen instead.  But the north made damn sure that never happened and that the south’s legacy would always be swept up with wanting to engage in slave labor.  But I can assure you that several Jews were behind that conspiracy since they were the wealthiest of the plantation owners.  Regular white Gentiles did not have slaves because they could not afford to own another human being.

Coming Apart From the Inside: How Internal Strife Brought Down the Confederacy

By David J. Eicher

Jefferson Davis sat in his second-floor study in the Confederate White House in Richmond and stared blankly into the adjacent room. For all the hard work he had put in managing the war and difficult and disagreeable colleagues, disaster still seemed to be in the offing that fall of 1861. The papers on his desk didn’t help his mood; they simply reminded him of a score of arguments about to bubble over between his generals and bureau chiefs and the icy reception with which he had recently been met by the Confederate Congress.

Jefferson Davis faced a staggering challenge: How was he to forge a true nation that could wage war against the United States from a bickering hodge-podge of states that favored keeping their own identity and whose representatives seemed to take delight in challenging his every idea?

For more than a century the politicians and generals on the Confederate side have been lionized as noble warriors who heroically fought for an honorable cause that had little chance of succeeding. In reality, the Confederate leadership was rife with infighting. Davis argued with the Confederate House and Senate, state governors and his own cabinet. Senators threatened one another with physical violence. Some were brutal drunks, others hopeless idealists who would not bend even when it meant the difference between victory and defeat. Commanders were often assigned not on the basis of skill but because of personal connections.

Debates over such issues as whether the Confederacy needed a Supreme Court dragged on, squandering time that would have been better spent on making sure the troops were well fed. Davis frequently interfered with generals in the field, micromanaging their campaigns and playing favorites, ignoring the chain of command and placing trust in men who were utterly incompetent.

Some states, led by their governors, wanted to set themselves up as separate nations, further undermining a unified war effort. Tensions were so extreme that the vice president of the Confederacy refused to live in the same state as Davis—and this while they were trying to win a war.

Davis knew his political existence and those of his colleagues had been built on the concept of states’ rights. To have a chance at winning the war, however, he needed sweeping administrative and military central powers. The Confederate States of America needed to act as one.

The internal war between Davis and Congress erupted quickly. On Nov-ember 8, 1861, Davis’ war clerk, John B. Jones, wrote in his diary, “No Executive had ever such cordial and unanimous support.” By the summer of 1862, however, he reported “murmurs” against the president. Secretary of the Navy Stephen Mallory remarked in August how Congress seemed unhappy with Davis and that a “spirit of opposition” was growing. Meanwhile, South?Carolina Senator Lawrence Keitt openly termed Davis “a failure.”

Field officers also joined in the attacks against Davis. Robert A. Toombs, a Georgia politician who had briefly served as Davis’ secretary of state, was now a brigadier general hoping to win the war by killing Yankees rather than arguing in Richmond. He frequently shared his frustrations with fellow Georgian Alexander H. Stephens, the vice president, including comments like, “As [to] the assignment of Smith’s regiment, [Secretary of State Judah P.] Benjamin wrote me that the President instructed him to suggest to me to call Genl. [Joseph E.] Johnston’s attention to it; that he was commander of both corps of the army. I replied to Benj[amin] that I had good reasons to know that fact, ‘and in common with the army, not without reasons to lament it.’ I never knew as incompetent [an] executive officer. As he has been to West Point, tho’, I suppose he necessarily knows everything about it. We are doing nothing here, and will do nothing. The army is dying….Set this down in your book, and set down opposite to it its epitaph, ‘died of West Point.’ ”

A week later, Toombs turned his ire more directly toward the president. “Davis is here,” he confided to Stephens. “His generals are fooling [him] about the strength of our force in order to shield their inactivity. [Davis] talks of activity on the Potomac but I fear he does not feel it strong enough to move this inert mass.”

Colonel Thomas W.?Thomas of the 15th?Georgia also derided Davis, writing that “Pres. Davis was up the other day and reviewed about 12,000 troops at Fairfax Court House. There was not a single cheer, even when some one in the crowd among the staff called out for three cheers there was not a single response, everything was as cold as funeral meats.”

The volatile issue of conscription soon shattered relations between Davis, Congress and the state governors. Virginia Governor John Letcher declared conscription “the most alarming stride towards consolidation that has ever occurred,” but conceded he would not fight Davis because the alternative would be ruin. Not so Georgia Governor Joe Brown, who believed that the draft was a measure aimed at destroying the states. “If the State Regiments are broken up, and the conscripts belonging to them forced into other organizations against their consent,” Brown told Davis, “it will have a very discouraging effect….This Act, not only disorganizes the military system of all the States, but consolidates almost the entire military system of the State in the Confederate Executive, with the appointment of the officers of the militia, and enables him at his pleasure, to cripple or destroy the civil government of each State, by arresting, and carrying into the Confederate Service, the officers charged by the State Constitution.”

Davis was incensed. “I have received your letter,” he wrote Brown, “informing me of your transfer of the Georgia State troops to General [Alexander] Lawton commanding Confederate forces at Savannah suggesting that there be as little interference as possible on the part of the Confederate authorities with the present organization of those troops…interference with the present organization of companies, squadrons, battalions, or regiments tendered by Governors of States, is specially disclaimed.” So began a bitter fight.

Davis never knew where or when the next divisive issue would pop up. Governor Henry Rector of Arkansas fueled the Confederacy’s internal problems, for example, when he wanted to pull his state away from the Confederacy in the summer of 1862. His state would not, Rector declared in a proclamation, “remain a confederate State, desolated as a wilderness.”

Rector threatened to build “a new ark and launch it on new waters, seeking a haven somewhere, of equality, safety, and rest.” Responding to Rector’s proclamation, Governor Francis Lubbock of Texas wrote the president, reassuring him as best he could that support would come from the Deep South. “This is no time for bickering, heart-burnings, and divisions among a people struggling for existence as a free Government,” Lubbock wrote.

The issue persisted throughout that year, and Davis lectured Congress at the beginning of 1863 that “You can best devise the means for establishing that entire cooperation of the Sate and central governments which is essential to the well-being of both….”

His admonition fell on deaf ears, for on February 5, 1863, the Senate heard a proposed amendment to the Confederate constitution that would allow an aggrieved state to secede from the Confederacy. “It shall do so in peace,” read the proposal, “but shall be entitled to its pro rata share of property and be liable for its pro rata share of public debt to be determined by negotiation.” The plan was referred to the Judicial Committee. Two days later senators failed to recommend the amendment, and the idea was dropped as being too dangerous.

Sickly Vice President Alexander Stephens was another snake in the grass Davis had to deal with. Early in the war, Stephens had returned to his home in Crawfordville Ga., to conspire and orchestrate a campaign against the president. “What is wanting in Richmond is ‘brains,’ Howell Cobb, a Georgia general officer who had been president of the Confederate Provisional Congress and a likely candidate for Davis’ job, wrote to the vice president. “I did not find the temper and disposition of Congress as bad as I expected, but there is a lamentable want of brains and good sound common sense.”

Lawrence Keitt wrote his wife that he had heard “Toombs is on the stump in Geo., and is arraigning Davis in a terrible manner.” He added: “I have always feared the divisions, which I saw would spring up among us. You cannot have liaison—connection [sic]—unity—among a planting community. Too many Revolutions have shipwrecked upon internal division. This Revolution proves that canonized imbecility is but a straw before the wrath of masses—it seems to be a law of humanity that generation after generation must rescue its liberties from the insidious grasp of a foe without or within. In our case, we have to seize them from both foes—we have a worthless government, and are reduced to the humiliation of acknowledging it, because we cannot, with safety, shake it.”

In early 1864, senators introduced a bill to use blacks in the military, opening up another avenue of internal debate. The bill was referred to committee, and by order of the Senate leadership the committee was discharged from considering the bill on February 5. Meanwhile, in the House, William Porcher Miles, chairman of the Military Affairs Committee, reported that he believed the act to employ slaves and free blacks would increase the army by 40,000 men. John Baldwin of Virginia wanted to exempt any free blacks engaged in food production, particularly in the Shenandoah Valley.

Ethelbert Barksdale of Mississippi objected, saying that free blacks “are a blot upon our [cause], and pernicious to our slave population….[Baldwin] says to the free negro, you shall not bear the burdens of this war—while [the white citizen] must take his place in the army.” After further argument and slight massaging of the language, the bill was passed. A discussion about whether or not African Americans would in fact be armed and whether slaves would be emancipated in compensation, like so many other thorny policy and military decisions the South needed to make, was deferred.

By May 1864, with a Union army driving into the Wilderness, members of Congress were thrown into a near panic, and legislators introduced a flurry of contradictory resolutions, amendments and joint agreements. Some members resolved that a congressional company be formed to go out and join the fight. Others wanted to evacuate Richmond and move the government to a place of safety. In opposition to that, a number of congressmen argued that the public needed to be kept calm, and a formal declaration should be passed that stated there was absolutely no danger.

A clutch of harried congressmen pressed to exempt those over 50 from service, a proviso that would have included many Congressmen. Another contingent of lawmakers conversely argued that everyone available would be needed to defend Richmond.

Still others took the floor to suggest that no time existed to refer any response to the Military Affairs Committee, which would only delay any action, or that Congress should rely on the president to tell it what it should do. The Confederacy’s leaders were going round and round in debate while Ulysses S. Grant and the Army of the Potomac pounded deeper into Virginia and William T. Sherman’s legions continued to drive on Atlanta.

To make matters worse for the Southern cause that hot summer, the loyalty of state governors to the cause seemed to be splintering. The greatest trouble was growing in Georgia, where the disenchanted Stephens had set up camp.

The vice president had a friendship, not surprisingly, with a cranky anti-administration newspaper editor, Henry Cleveland, who ran the Augusta Constitutionalists. The two struck up a long, detailed correspondence in which they openly discussed what they perceived as the president’s incompetence and what ought to be done about it.

The two men also discussed the idea of a peace conference. They believed such an event could wrest responsibility for conduct of the war from the hands of Davis and restore tranquility to the beleaguered South.

On June 8, Cleveland wrote Stephens: “Since my second letter to you, I have received your last, and confess that I did suppose you had hope of terms from Lincoln. For my self (from reasons I will some day give you) I am satisfied that the States can to day get terms and good terms, but Mr. Davis never can.” Continued Cleveland, “No human power can change Mr. Davis, and consequently, no human power can save the Confederacy from war and speeches. I am satisfied that the immediate secession of Georgia from the Confederate States would be the best thing we could do, and am equally satisfied that nine-tenths of the people of Georgia will follow the lead of the Administration, until our cause is beyond the hand of resurrection….The Stars and Stripes will float over the Government works in Augusta before a year expires, and Mr. Davis be dead or in exile….To win this fight, under this Administration, would be a result without a reason—an effect without a cause. Is this treason? I am afraid you will think so, but it is difficult to look back at all we have suffered, and see blood and life and desperate valor thrown away, and still think calmly.”

Local politics and business intervened to muzzle Cleveland’s public discontent. “A letter from Henry Cleveland informs me that the majority of the stock of the Constitutionalist is now owned by Administration men,” wrote Georgia Governor Joe Brown, a fellow conspirator, “and that he will be obliged to change his course, keep silent, or be ousted. Could not enough of the stock be purchased to control and keep the paper on the right lines?”

Despite the shift, more and more Southerners picked up on an increasing and tangled web of conspiracy in Georgia. “Our Vice President is a dangerous man,” Brig. Gen. Thomas C. Hindman wrote his friend Louis Wigfall, a powerful anti-Davis senator, “the more so because of his stealthy policy and his bogus reputation for fairness and honesty. I consider him the head of a faction that is ready to betray the Confederacy and sell the blood of the Army. ‘Crushing him out’ is doing God’s service.”

In Richmond, meanwhile, the second session of the Second Congress of the Confederate States of America began on November 7, 1864. On that day Davis sent a long message to Congress covering many urgent points that needed to be faced. In many ways it was a last attempt for turnaround and cooperation on a variety of issues that the president felt were sinking the Confederacy if left unresolved. But Congress failed to act decisively on nearly every one of them.

The Confederacy was on its last legs as 1865 began. Siege operations around Petersburg ground on, sapping the remaining resources and supplies that could be brought to bear against the Union army. General John Bell Hood’s disastrous campaign in Tennessee had effectively eliminated the Army of Tennessee from further meaningful service in the war. A combined Federal Army and Navy operation was closing in on Wilmington, N.C., the last open Confederate port, and the Lincoln administration had decisively won the election.

The Confederate Congress finally decided to act, doing something of which Davis disapproved—developing peace proposals. As early as January 12, the House passed a resolution to send a peace commission to Washington. The next day Davis reported to the House that an old nemesis, Congressman Henry Foote of Tennessee, with whom Davis had nearly once dueled, had been arrested on his way to Washington. Foote had been detained at Occoquan, Va., while trying to cross the lines on a private peace mission to the Yankee capital. A special committee was appointed to investigate Foote, and it expelled him from the house.

Once the war all but ended in April, the turmoil that had kept the Confederacy continually unsettled was missing from many histories written by Southern politicians and generals. Few wanted to face up to the fact that internal strife had contributed to the Confederacy’s ruin. Soon after the Confederate surrender, Southern historians began massaging the political facts to make their leaders look better.

Those revisionists included Davis himself, who even changed the notes of his wartime secretary, Burton Harrison. Davis reworked the claim that he had been “among the keenest and most sagacious of them all in his endeavor to precipitate secession upon the country” to “in his assertion of the rights of the States under the Constitution and of the right of Secession—although the records of Congress show that he cherished the utmost devotion to the Union and consistently opposed extremists of all parties who were endeavoring to precipitate actual secession.”

In his first inaugural address, Davis said he was “prophesying [sic] peace, but threatened that the enemies of the South would be compelled to ‘smell Southern powder, and feel Southern steel.’” He slightly altered that declaration after the war by saying that he was expressing a desire to maintain peaceful relations with the states that had remained in the Union and was asserting that all the seceding states desired was “to be let alone.” The threat that they would make the enemies of the South “smell Southern powder and feel Southern steel” would occur only if war were forced upon them.

Davis’ postwar embellishments described a harmonious environment that never existed and ignored the bitter squabbles that took place among those who needed to cooperate in order for the Confederacy to succeed. The roll call included men such as Alexander Stephens, Henry Foote and Robert Toombs—Southern leaders who held the principles of states’ rights and slavery higher than the existence of their own creation, the Confederate States of America.

I have always been a Rebel. Since childhood living in Iran watching the Western Movies, I had sympathy for the Confederacy and I just knew that there must be more to all of these Yankee Propaganda Western Series and Movies than what shows! Then at an older age, when I started my history readings (age 10), I also started to read the American History. Things started to clear up but they never had become clear as the glass until I came to America (1979) and started to study the American History in depth. I self educated myself to the true American History in the later years. Until this day I simply cannot get enough of the American History.

On this 4th of July ……

On this 4th of July I have decided to write a special piece about one of the most controversial cases in the American history, a case that American Liberal Media, American Liberal Democrats and American Politically Correct Liberal Educational System refuses to debate about and they blindfold their eyes to the historical realities. It’s a taboo subject that the Lame Stream Media (Sarah Palin’s Term for the Main Stream Media) refuses to even talk about! So in this 4th of July Special, I have decided to write about this subject and acknowledge the great services of many Good Old Black Folks who served and fought for the Confederacy during the Civil War. These forgotten veterans are also valid veterans of the Civil War. No matter how the Liberal Big Government Establishment disagrees with their politics, yet they have fought and died for what they believed as Confederate Soldiers and Servicemen and women. It is well past due to acknowledge and give credit to these Black Confederate Veterans.

The history of this amazing nation which in only 236 years have managed to dedicate more to the human civilization, science, technology and history than any other ancient civilization is fascinating. The nation which provided the Greatest Constitution on Earth:

In only 236 years, America has achieved what the world could not have achieved in millenniums. Why is that? Because America is the only place on Earth where you can come, do hard work, become a citizen, make something of yourself from nothing, engage in the “American Dream” and afterwards, we will accept you as an “American”!

We do not care about your race, religion, ethnicity, ideology and Klan or Social Status. As long as you speak English and be a productive member of the society to make America a better place, we will embrace you as one of us. Then we will call you an “American”.

You can go to England, France, Germany or anywhere else in the world and join their societies for decades but officially or unofficially and in their hearts they will never accept you as their citizen and one of their own but we will. Why? Because America is the nation of immigrants and the immigrants are what makes the America great.

General Gadsden had designed this flag. General Christopher Gadsden (1724 – 1805) was a military man and a statesman from South Carolina. He was the leader of the South Carolina Patriot Movement during the American Revolution. He was a Representative in the Continental Congress and a Brigadier General in the Continental Army during the War of Independence. General Gadsden was the designer of the Gadsden Flag which is now drafted by the Tea Party as its official flag.

How all the lies started against the South –

Northern Liberals, NAACP, Black Liberals and Socialist Liberal Democrats through the years have been actively trying to hide, cover-up and lie about the history to put the average American and keep him in the dark. Due to liberal propaganda, the historically illiterate average American, aligns CSA (Confederate States of America, the Rebel Flag and Confederacy directly with the Slavery; therefore, any person who sympathizes with the South and CSA or the Confederate Banner is branded as Racist, Bigot and KKK.

Liberal lies of Reverend Jesse Jackson, Reverend Al Sharpton, NAACP and so on has no end! The propaganda is wide and deep. All of these liberal theories come dandy until the true historians uncover the plot and the Yankee Shiite hits the fan!

Then the Northern Liberal Lies fabricated in New York City, Los Angeles and Hollywood gets exposed and a curtain of ignorance gets up lifted from the average American’s eyes!

Liberals want to make you believe that the Civil War was fought for Slavery.
Liberals want you to believe that CSA Sympathizers are Racists.
The reality is that:
It’s Not Hate, its Heritage!
It is called southern Heritage.

The Major Reason for the Civil War (1861 – 1865)

The reality is that the Civil War was a constitutional conflict. It was a battle over constitutional rights of the states to run their own affairs vs. the Big Government controlling all the states.

The major reason for the civil war was not slavery but it was seeking independence due to oppression of the federal government turned to a central government while forgotten about Federalism. The Big Government denied the rights of states in their internal affairs and started to dictate to them how to run their lives. Big Government started to dump the Federalism which this country was built upon it in the trashcan. This is why states succeeded. This is how the Civil War started.

Same goes today where Hussein Obama and Big Government Liberals are trying to deny state rights (Arizona Case) and establish a Socialist Big Government dictating to states on what to do.

The Confederate Flag


Confederate Flag
The Southern Cross Banner (The Rebel Flag)

Confederate Flag originally represents the original 11 succeeded states + 2 invited states (Missouri and Kentucky)  to join the Confederacy. The original succeeded states were: Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Florida, Arkansas, and Texas.

In later dates the Confederate Banner represented the original 11 succeeded states + the 2 territories of Indian (Oklahoma) and Arizona (Arizona / New Mexico).

Even though Confederacy had claims on Missouri, Kentucky, West Virginia and Maryland, yet they have never officially joined the Confederacy; however, they were always remained as battlegrounds. Missouri and Kentucky were more tilted towards the Confederacy but West Virginia and Maryland were more tilted towards the Union.

The Confederate Flag also known as the Rebel Flag, Dixie Flag or the Southern Cross is consisted of the original 13 stars standing for the original succeeded states and territories on a diagonal Southern Cross planted on a Rebel Red Color background.

The Confederate Salute

The modern Confederate Salute is as:

“I salute the Confederate Flag with affection, reverence and undying remembrance”

This “salute” to the Confederate flag was written by Mrs. James Henry Parker of the New York and adopted by the “United Daughters of the Confederacy” in 1933. The salute is still used by all who believe in the Confederacy, the history, the heritage and the cause and the cry for independence of the Confederacy due to the oppression of the Big Union Government including but not limited to the:

* United Daughters of the Confederacy
* Sons of the Confederate Veterans
* Children of the Confederacy

It’s High Time Americans Have this Conversation about America’s Militarized Police Force

“We gassed non-threatening, non-violent protesters,” replied the former Chief of Police.
Image Credit: www.AnthonyFreda.comLet’s not kid ourselves anymore America. What we are calling the militarization of of police has already taken place, on a large scale. We are now seeing a domestic military, pretending to be a police force.

To help solidify this claim, we need only look at what went on in August in Ferguson, Missouri. The troops (police officers) landed (dispatched) in Ferguson to quell political dissent (keep the order).

The people of Ferguson Missouri were subject to martial law tactics as armored personnel carriers rolled down Main Street, USA firing tear gas at peaceful homeowners and journalists alike. The images that have come out of Ferguson, while some were inspiring, paint a vivid and ominous picture of what’s in store for Police State USA.

Shock Video: Ferguson Police Deliberately Tear Gas Journalists

Feds Seize Control Over All Police Operations in Ferguson

#Ferguson Live Updates

These are not images indicative to the ‘Land of the Free.’ These are scenes from war torn countries under military rule.

Many people still remain oblivious to the standing army that occupies the US. Their obstinate tendencies coupled with apathetic rationalization of domestic military action based on ‘those rabid dogs‘ rioting, has all but opened the flood gates for a military state in the US.

Free Thought Project journalist Jay Syrmopolous, published an online database that allows people to see what military gear their towns have been acquiring. The results of some of these searches are bone chilling.

The most disturbing search results that we’ve found so far have been the eight, $18 million, AIRCRAFT, ROTARY WING, purchases in Brevard County, FL. We were told from sources that these could be the AH-46 Apache attack choppers.

The Free Thought Project asked Sheriff Wayne Ivey of Brevard County why they would possibly need 8 Apache helicopters to which he responded, “The units they speak of are listed under Brevard County but are at Patrick (Airforce Base) and have nothing to do with us.”

But when we asked why they were listed under Brevard County in the 1033 database search, we received no reply.

Eight of these helicopters could literally destroy a city in a few hours.

The Department of Defense’s 1033 program actually stipulates that the police departments must use this military equipment right away. There is actually a clause in the paperwork stating that the police department must use its equipment within one year of receiving it.  If they do not use the equipment within one year they will be forced to return it.

So it’s possible that Brevard County, much to their dismay, couldn’t possibly figure out a way to use 8 attack helicopters in a police setting, so they were forced to give them over to the local Airforce base.

Either way, militarizing police makes the tax paying citizen less free.

Departments across the country are ‘losing’ their military gear in another way as well. Random tax-payer funded tyrant gear simply goes missing; dozens of departments have been suspended for these incompetent actions. This list of lost gear includes M14 and M16 assault rifles, .45-caliber pistols, shotguns, and even vehicles.

Corruption and theft are the new norm in police state USA. Even retired police chiefs of large cities are watching from the sidelines with anxiety as they see their once, only slightly corrupt cities, turn into occupied militarized zones, ready to pounce on the first instance of civil opposition.

The most recent of former police chiefs coming to terms with the horrid consequences of their actions is Norm Stamper, former chief of the Seattle Police. Stamper was recently on the Colbert Report and Stephen Colbert asked him what happened during the infamous Seattle WTO protests in 1999 under his leadership. “Well we gassed non-threatening, non-violent protesters,” replied the former Chief of police for Seattle Washington.

Of course while Norm Stamper was a cop, he didn’t realize that his actions, no matter how “justified” by the state, would be contributing to a hellish future police state. Stamper, like myself a 4 year veteran of the USMC, and most of those who serve, or have served the state in some way, are unable to think outside of the paradigm while simultaneously supporting it.

“Like all members of the military profession I never had an original thought until I left the service.” -Two time medal of honor recipient General Smedley Butler, USMC

Because Stamper is out of the paradigm, he can see clearer now. According to his website, he wants to:

End the Drug War… Drive Bigotry and Brutality Out of the Criminal Justice System… Honor the Constitution… Build Respect for Cops…

So far, Stamper has been quite outspoken against the police state of which he was once complicit in creating. In order to affect change more people like Stamper need to come out. If half of the officers that contacted the Free Thought Project spoke publicly about their concerns, we’d be in a much better place.

Unfortunately when officers do speak out against their own department they are met with horrid backlash from their peers; as was the scenario in the most recent case of an officer calling out the corruption in his department.

Detective Joe Crystal became a target of intimidation for his entire department after testifying against other officers in a misconduct case.  Following his testimony, he received threats from other officers, and even found a dead rat on his car one day.

The Free Thought Project is contacted regularly by police officers who know the system they uphold is completely corrupt, but they find it nearly impossible to call out the corruption.

Most recently an officer in Texas contacted us, who wanted to help prevent brutality and corruption. When we told him that speaking out and refusing to enforce immoral laws is how to change things, he replied by stating that he does refuse to arrest people for marijuana possession, but that he “fear(s) the repercussions by speaking out, simply because I do need a paycheck.”

When police fear the police, it is high time for change.

The overwhelming majority of police brutality cases stem from the war on drugs. When so many people are tasked with finding and prosecuting those in possession of a substance deemed illegal, the interactions become more frequent and less cordial. If we end that, we get the state out of the private lives of individuals. This will only serve to lessen the scope of police harassment, in turn lessening the instance of brutality.

The Free Thought Project is currently planning a world wide day of peaceful resistance to #End the Drug War.

We are also starting a Go Fund Me campaign to help support whistleblower police officers. With enough ‘good cops’ coming out against corruption in their departments, this would help to speed up the awakening process for Americans who still support the police state.

We’ve seen the change that one or two good cops can affect, imagine 100.

The time for peaceful action is now.

BREAKING NEWS: Whistleblower: L.A. Planning to Forcibly House Homeless Citizens in Camps

breakingnewsWW~Notes:  Well, it’s back to the rotting corpse of what’s left of America.  Even though, I am attempting to focus on Palestine this news was too important not to post.


A whistleblower who claims to work inside the Los Angeles Department of Health Services has told Infowars that L.A. officials are planning to forcibly remove homeless people from the streets later this summer and house them in facilities which they will not be permitted to leave.

Insider: Supervisor told us citizens “cannot leave” housing facilities

280714homelessThe source, an office clerk within the LADHS, said that during a policy meeting on the morning of June 18th last month, his supervisor announced that the Los Angeles County Dept. of Health Services had struck a deal with the government to open up “low cost housing” facilities for homeless people, otherwise known as “FEMA camps.” The source said that his supervisor ordered staff not to use the term “FEMA camps.”

The program is focused around removing or relocating homeless people from the streets of downtown L.A., starting with Skid Row.

“We will approach them on the street asking if they need or want help usually offering food to get their direct attention, if they come into the office it makes our jobs twice as efficient,” said the supervisor. “In most cases the decision is already made for them unless they become combative or belligerent in which case we send them in for a 72 hour psych evaluation and then transfer them while under sedation or heavy medication to the “facility.”

The supervisor stressed that the program would be “humane,” that it would help clean up the streets, and that the citizens being processed into the housing units would receive medical treatment, an RFID chip, room and board, but that “they cannot leave.” The supervisor elaborated that the facility was not a prison, but that its population would be kept there “for their own health and safety.”

The whistleblower points to a page on the Department of Health Services official website which details how “roving teams” will help “provide short-term housing with health oversight to homeless DHS patients who are recovering from an acute illness or injury or have conditions that would be exacerbated by living on the street or in shelters.”

The post also mentions “a 38 bed recuperative care site in South LA” which will be opened “this summer” to cater for the homeless.

The notion of forcing homeless people off the streets into detention facilities is not a conspiracy theory and has already been taking place across the United States. Los Angeles is already making moves to force charities for the homeless off the streets as part of plans for the “gentrification” of entire areas.

Last year, the city of Colombia, South Carolina voted to make homelessness a crime, creating police patrols which gave homeless people the choice of either forcibly entering a shelter on the edge of town or being sent to jail.

More than 50 cities all over the nation have also made feeding the homeless a crime, while in places like Camden, N.J., authorities are bulldozing entire tent cities.

ICD 9: International Medical and “Legal” Execution Coding Brought Under Obamacare

WW~Notes:  I am very familiar with the material in this article, since I worked in the group health insurance industry coding medical claims for over a decade for three major insurance firms across the U.S.  With 86,000 new codes in the ICD10 manual paying claims is going to be a bloody nightmare for both the processor and the insured.  Expect delayed payment of claims until this is firmly implemented. 

A faithful reader sent me a code and asked me to investigate how it ties into the larger scale of things. The specific code sent to me will make any American’s hair stand up on the back of their neck. The code is ICD 9 E 978. After reading this code I decided that it was my duty to investigate further and get to the bottom of why we have a medical code in the United States for “Legal Execution.” Below are my results.

ICD 9 E 978 “Legal Execution
All executions performed at the behest of the judiciary or ruling authority [whether permanent or temporary] as:

  • asphyxiation by gas
  • beheading, decapitation (by guillotine)
  • capital punishment
  • electrocution
  • hanging
  • poisoning
  • shooting
  • other specified means
  • INJURY UNDETERMINED WHETHER ACCIDENTALLY OR PURPOSELY
  • INFLICTED

Uncle Sam GuillotineAccording to reports, more than 68,105 new medical codes are being added due to the Obamacare monstrosity. Doctors all across the nation have been complaining due to the overwhelming burden it places upon them. Just the time consumption alone, making sure these codes are accurate, will inevitably take time away from the doctor/patient relationship creating a barrier of paperwork while destroying the personal experience with your doctor. While these doctors are correct to state it will be even more of a burden, they are not correct to state this has come out of Obamacare itself. Let me explain.

These codes were not created by Obamacare, however Obamacare is trying to implement every American citizen under international codes to link us to the “international” system. These codes were actually created by the WHO (World Health Organization) . The WHO is a specialized agency of the United Nations.

First, it is important to know what the meanings of the codes are to grasp a better understanding of the importance and depth of this “internal takeover” that has been going on for many years right under our noses. The first ICD (International Classification of Diseases) was created in 1893.

  • WHO took control of clinical modifications in 1948.
  • 1955 the WHO modified the ICD to track mortality rates.
  • 1977 the 9th revision was published aka “ICD 9 Medical Codes” that are being used today within our medical system.
  • 1988 Congress passed “Medicare Catastrophic Coverage Act” requiring the use of ICD 9 codes on all claims.
  • 1996 Mandated codes to be of highest possible specificity.

KS WHOAs of October 1, 2014 the ICD 9 coding will no longer be used. ICD 10 “mandated” medical coding will add 68,105 codes. The ICD-10-PCS (Procedure Code System) has an additional 86,000 codes totaling approximately 155,000 new medical codes for medical professionals. I can see why this would be overwhelming, and I am sure this will be a burden on doctors. One does have to wonder why doctors have not spoken out against this international coding system in the first place. This “international” United Nations based code is used to track people in all countries that have signed on with the WHO plan. Their “coding” and “data” collections have been implemented all around the globe with a few exceptions. So why are American doctors being required to use international medical coding? Why haven’t doctors pointed out these are international codes? Why did congress sell out the American people in 1988 by passing the “Medicare Catastrophic Coverage Act” going along with and forcing “Sovereign United States Citizens” under “International rules, regulations, and coding”?

According to Wikipedia

The World Health Organization (WHO) is a specialized agency of the United Nations (UN) that is concerned with international public health. It was established on 7 April 1948, with its headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland. WHO is a member of the United Nations Development Group. Its predecessor, the Health Organization, was an agency of the League of Nations.

The use of the word “world”, rather than “international”, emphasized the truly global nature of what the organization was seeking to achieve. The constitution of the World Health Organization had been signed by all 61 countries of the United Nations by 22 July 1946. It thus became the first specialized agency of the United Nations to which every member subscribed. Its constitution formally came into force on the first World Health Day on 7 April 1948, when it was ratified by the 26th member state. The first meeting of the World Health Assembly finished on 24 July 1948, having secured a budget of US$5 million (then GBP£1,250,000) for the 1949 year.

Andrija Stampar was the Assembly’s first president, and G. Brock Chisholm was appointed Director-General of WHO, having served as Executive Secretary during the planning stages. Its first priorities were to control the spread of malaria, tuberculosis and sexually transmitted infections, and to improve maternal and child health, nutrition and environmental hygiene. Its first legislative act was concerning the compilation of accurate statistics on the spread and morbidity of disease. The logo of the World Health Organization features the Rod of Aesculapius as a symbol for healing.

The WHO and the World Bank constitute the core team responsible for administering the International Health Partnership (IHP+). The IHP+ is a group of partner governments, development agencies, civil society and others committed to improving the health of citizens in developing countries. Partners work together to put international principles for aid effectiveness and development cooperation into practice in the health sector.

In addition, the WHO has also promoted road safety. Each year, the organization marks World Health Day focusing on a specific health promotion topic, timed to match the anniversary of WHO’s founding. Recent themes have been drug resistance (2011) and aging (2012). As part of the United Nations, the World Health Organization supports work towards the Millennium Development Goals. Of the eight Millennium Development Goals, three – reducing child mortality by two-thirds, to reduce maternal deaths by three-quarters, and to halt and begin to reduce the spread of HIV/AIDS – relate directly to WHO’s scope; the other five inter-relate and have an impact on world health.

The organization develops and promotes the use of evidence-based tools, norms and standards to support member states to inform health policy options. It oversees the implementation of the International Health Regulations, and publishes a series of medical classifications; of these, three are overreaching “reference classifications”: the International Statistical Classification of Diseases (ICD), the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) and the International Classification of Health Interventions (ICHI). Other international policy frameworks produced by WHO include the International Code of Marketing of Breast-milk Substitutes (adopted in 1981), Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (adopted in 2003) and the Global Code of Practice on the International Recruitment of Health Personnel (adopted in 2010).

The WHO regularly publishes a World Health Report, its leading publication, including an expert assessment of a specific global health topic. Other publications of WHO include the Bulletin of the World Health Organization, the Eastern Mediterranean Health Journal (overseen by EMRO), the Human Resources for Health (published in collaboration with BioMed Central), and the Pan American Journal of Public Health (overseen by PAHO/AMRO).

As of 2013, the WHO has 194 member states: all Member States of the United Nations except Liechtenstein, as well as the Cook Islands and Niue. (A state becomes a full member of WHO by ratifying the treaty known as the Constitution of the World Health Organization.)

As of 2013, it also had two associate members, Puerto Rico and Tokelau. Several other entities have been granted observer status. Palestine is an observer as a “national liberation movement” recognized by the League of Arab States under United Nations Resolution 3118. The Holy See also attends as an observer, as does the Order of Malta. In 2010, Taiwan was invited under the name of “Chinese Taipei”.

WHO Member States appoint delegations to the World Health Assembly, WHO’s supreme decision-making body. All UN Member States are eligible for WHO membership, and, according to the WHO web site, “other countries may be admitted as members when their application has been approved by a simple majority vote of the World Health Assembly”. In addition, the UN observer organizations International Committee of the Red Cross and International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies have entered into “official relations” with WHO and are invited as observers. In the World Health Assembly they are seated along the Financing and partnerships.

The WHO is financed by contributions from member states and outside donors. As of 2012, the largest annual assessed contributions from member states came from the United States ($110 million), Japan ($58 million), Germany ($37 million), United Kingdom ($31 million) and France ($31 million). The combined 2012–2013 budget has proposed a total expenditure of $3,959 million, of which $944 million (24%) will come from assessed contributions. This represented a significant fall in outlay compared to the previous 2009–2010 budget, adjusting to take account of previous under spends. Assessed contributions were kept the same. Voluntary contributions will account for $3,015 million (76%), of which $800 million is regarded as highly or moderately flexible funding, with the remainder tied to particular programs or objectives.

WHO and Bill GatesIn recent years, the WHO’s work has involved increasing collaboration with external bodies. As of 2002, a total of 473 NGOs had some form of partnership with WHO. There were 189 partnerships with international non-governmental organization (NGO) in formal “official relations” – the rest being considered informal in character. Partners include the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the Rockefeller Foundation.

As you can see the WHO supports UN Agenda 21 through the “Millennium Development Goals” “Sustainable Development” agendas. President Obama, as senator, had a hand in attempting to increase U.S. political attention towards Millennium Development Goals, including The Borgen Project which worked with Senator Obama on “The Global Poverty Act”; a bill requiring the White House to develop a strategy for achieving the goals. The bill did not pass.

Even more disturbing, is finding out American citizens have been subject to the ICP Medial code for many years. Thus, giving the United Nations our private information through “coding.” This is not only is an invasion of our privacy, but has been done in silence without our knowledge.

The Department of Homeland Security of Wisconsin “List of underlying causes of injury death Framework of E-code groupings (ICD-9) 1989 – 1998” conveniently leaves out the definition of code ICD 9 E 978, but does reference it at the bottom of the list as: “1. Includes legal intervention (E970-E978) and operations of war (E990-E999).”

This certainly makes me wonder why DHS would omit (“hide”) the code from the chart? Most people won’t dig to find out what the “medical code” means unless they have a specific reason to do so. One thing is for sure, whether omitted by DHS or someone else, there is a good reason this code was left out of their document. They definitely didn’t want most people to see what it means. DHS knows this code would create a stir with the American people if they found out there was a code for “Legal Execution,” especially with a guillotine and beheading.

ICD9Data.com also gives a list for “legal intervention.” Center for Disease Control “International Classification of Diseases, Tenth Revision (ICD-10)”

To read more about the “global” coding ICD 9 and 10 see below:
2013 ARHPC_ICD 9 CM

The questions that need to be asked and answered are:

th

  1. Why has the United States been subjected to “International Medical Coding” without our knowledge?
  2. Why are we allowing “coding” that goes against our principles and constitution?
  3. Why do we have a code for “Legal Execution” which is illegal in America? With the exception of those given the death penalty after trial by jury.
  4. When did the Department of Homeland Security find out about this coding? Why haven’t they addressed this (since they are supposed to protect the people)?

ICD 10 WHO

  1. Why is DHS sending any kind of “Medical Coding” to the states?
  2. Why haven’t the doctors spoken out to make Americans and Medicare recipients aware that their information has been given to an “International body”?
  3. Why haven’t they made people aware that the WHO is a specialized agency of the United Nations and directly linked to the “League of Nations under the guise of collecting data?
  4. Why would we allow forced medical coding through congressional bills to come from an organization that supports UN Agenda 21, Millennium Development Goals, and supports the eradication of “sprawl” (which is average people like you and I)?
  5. Is law enforcement aware of this specific code? If so why haven’t they brought this to the attention of the American people?

I, of course, do not know the answers to these questions, but I am deeply disturbed that we, the American People, have been kept in the dark on such an important issue. I was never asked permission for an international organization being able to access any of my information through “coding.” I’ll bet you were not asked either. It is bad enough the out of control IRS will have complete access to our health information. Now, to make matters even worse, we find out the WHO will have access to every American citizens health information through “medical coding,” via Obamacare. When will enough be enough? When will the United States wake up and refuse to continue funding the United Nations and any organization that is affiliated with it?

One thing is for sure. This coding is directly related and tied to creating their “International One World Government.” While the WHO pretends to be for helping people, they create codes for “Legal Execution” by beheading. The more you research, the more you realize that the WHO isn’t all roses and sunshine. There is a much darker agenda at play. There is a direct connection between the “elitist” global banks and the WHO. The deeper you research, the more disturbing it gets. While American citizens have trusted our government to spend our money wisely, they have paid the WHO approximately $110 million dollars this year alone. Our government is inching us closer and closer to being controlled by a “One World Government” system and forcing us to pay for it. The repeal of Obamacare is important to our nation for many reasons, but pulling out of the United Nations and completely defunding them is imperative to our survival as a sovereign country and a free people.

Contact your representatives and demand that we defund and pull out of the United Nations now. Let them know about the “International Coding” system that is in place. I am sure many are not aware of this as they normally don’t even read the bills before they pass them ref: Obamacare aka ACA. If they won’t read their own bills why would we expect them to understand or know that the new medical coding is an expansion of a International Medical Code designed to track the world? This must be stopped. I am not and never have been a “global citizen”! I am an AMERICAN citizen! I am Red, White, and Blue through and through, and will continue to fight for our country, exposing corruption and spreading truth as long as I live.

Everyone is under surveillance now, says whistleblower Edward Snowden

3ed555c843-460x276.jpeg

People’s privacy is violated without any suspicion of wrongdoing, former National Security Agency contractor claims

May 3, 2014

The US intelligence whistleblower Edward Snowden has warned that entire populations, rather than just individuals, now live under constant surveillance.

“It’s no longer based on the traditional practice of targeted taps based on some individual suspicion of wrongdoing,” he said. “It covers phone calls, emails, texts, search history, what you buy, who your friends are, where you go, who you love.”

Snowden made his comments in a short video that was played before a debate on the proposition that surveillance today is a euphemism for mass surveillance, in Toronto, Canada. The former US National Security Agency contractor is living in Russia, having been granted temporary asylum there in June 2013.

The video was shown as two of the debaters – the former US National Security Administration director, General Michael Hayden, and the well-known civil liberties lawyer and Harvard law professor, Alan Dershowitz – argued in favour of the debate statement: “Be it resolved state surveillance is a legitimate defence of our freedoms.”

Opposing the motion were Glenn Greenwald, the journalist whose work based on Snowden’s leaks won a Pulitzer Prize for the Guardian last month, and Alexis Ohanian, co-founder of the social media website Reddit.

The Snowden documents, first leaked to the Guardian last June, revealed that the US government has programs in place to spy on hundreds of millions of people’s emails, social networking posts, online chat histories, browsing histories, telephone records, telephone calls and texts – “nearly everything a typical user does on the internet”, in the words of one leaked document.

Greenwald opened the debate by condemning the NSA’s own slogan, which he said appears repeatedly throughout its own documents: “Collect it all.”

“What is state surveillance?” Greenwald asked. “If it were about targeting in a discriminate way against those causing harm, there would be no debate.

“The actual system of state surveillance has almost nothing to do with that. What state surveillance actually is, is defended by the NSA’s actual words, that phrase they use over and over again: ‘Collect it all.’ ”

Dershowitz and Hayden spent the rest of the 90 minutes of the debate denying that the pervasive surveillance systems described by Snowden and Greenwald even exist and that surveillance programs are necessary to prevent terrorism.

“Collect it all doesn’t mean collect it all!” Hayden said, drawing laughter.

Greenwald sparred with Dershowitz and Hayden about whether or not the present method of metadata collection would have prevented the terrorist attacks on 11 September, 2001.

While Hayden argued that intelligence analysts would have noticed the number of telephone calls from San Diego to the Middle East and caught the terrorists who were living illegally in the US, Greenwald argued that one of the primary reasons the US authorities failed to prevent the attacks was because they were taking in too much information to accurately sort through it all.

Before the debates began, 33% of the audience voted in favour of the debate statement and 46% voted against. It closed with 59% of the audience siding with Greenwald and Ohanian.

The Libya Lie

around-the-world-trip-2009-367The 2011 putsch in Libya will be remembered by history in two ways.  First, that it marked the usurpation and infiltration of the Arab Spring by Western & Gulf Cooperation Council intelligence agencies.  Second, and more egregiously, that it represented the takedown of Africa’s most modern and successful nation -known since 1977 to its people as Great Socialist People’s Libyan Arab Jamahiriya.

While history-challenged Illuminati-mouthpiece news anchors reveled in the revived caricature of “the madman Gaddafi”, their shill reporters regurgitated CIA psyops memos of phony “massacres and bombardments”.  The most telling item in their miniscule footage were the red, black and green flags being hoisted by the “rebels” of Benghazi- the flag of the monarchy of King Idris.  Soon a private central bank was formed.

Libya had been an Italian colony from 1911 until 1951, when King Idris was installed on the throne by the British.  He signed treaties with Britain (1953), the US (1954) and Italy (1956) which allowed those countries to establish military bases, including Wheelus Air Base near Tripoli.  Soon Exxon Mobil, British Petroleum and the Italian Agip were granted large oil concessions.

King Idris became highly unpopular as Libyans saw him selling their country out to foreign oil.  Protests were handled brutally so an underground rebellion sprouted which came to include many in the armed forces.  In 1969 a bloodless coup was carried out by a few dozen officers calling themselves “Free Officers” based on the model of Gamel Nasser in Egypt.  Nasser had led the rebellion that deposed Egyptian King Farouk in 1958.  The architect of the 1969 Libyan coup that ended the monarchy of King Idris was an army captain named Mohamar Gaddafii.

The new Republic of Libya adopted a green flag, symbolizing Gaddafi’s “Green Book”, which he penned to explain the uniquely Libyan economic model of anarcho-syndicalism.  It’s a very thoughtful book and I recommend reading it.

In 1970 Gaddafi forced the U.S. and British forces to evacuate their military bases.  The following year he nationalized the properties held by British Petroleum and forced other companies to pay the Libyan state a much higher share of the profits.

He also nationalized Libya’s central bank.  Libya was one of only five countries in the world whose central bank is not controlled by the Rothschild-led Eight Families banking syndicate.

Because of this drastic break from colonial usury Libya had one of the highest standards of living in all of Africa.  Average per capita income is $14,000/year.  Workers not only owned the factories they work in, they decided what that factory will produce.  Women enjoy equal rights.  While Illuminati media portray the Libyan state as highly centralized and omnipotent, nothing could be further from the truth.  The idea of anarcho-syndicalism is that the state eventually withers away.  And it has.  When Gaddafi says he has very little to do with running the day to day affairs of the nation, he means it.  The people run those affairs.  Power is highly dispersed.

Gaddafi was also on mark when he blamed the current Libyan unrest on al Qaeda and Western nations.  He was referring to the al Qaeda affiliate National Front for Salvation (NFS), which has long operated from bases in Chad in its attempts to overthrow Qaddafi.  NFS extremists are funded by Saudi Arabia and take marching orders from their CIA/MI6/Mossad handlers.  Western journalists are currently getting their hot news tips from NFS leaders.

Chad has long been an important country in Exxon’s North Africa oil production schemes.  In 1990, following a successful Libyan-backed counter-coup against the Chad government that was giving refuge to NFS, the US evacuated 350 NFS leaders to Kenya with Saudi financing.

During the 1980’s the madman Reagan bombed Qaddafi’s family home, killing many of his relatives after Western intelligence falsely pinned the bombing of a German discothèque on Qaddafi.

The Lockerbie Lie

(Excerpted from Chapter 11: Noriega of Panama: Big Oil & Their Bankers…)

On December 21, 1988 Pan Am Flight 103 blew up over Lockerbie, Scotland.  When President Bush was sworn into office a month later, he blamed the terrorist act on two Libyans- Abdel Basset Ali al-Megrahi and Lamen Khalifa Fhimah.  Bush imposed sanctions on Libya.  President Bill Clinton later called for an international boycott of Libyan oil.  In 2000 the Libyans were convicted by a Scottish court set up in The Hague.  The evidence was flimsy.  Numerous independent investigations of the incident paint a much different picture.

Interfor, a New York City-based corporate intelligence firm hired by Pan Am’s insurance company found that a CIA cell in Frankfurt, Germany was protecting a Middle Eastern heroin smuggling operation which used Pan Am’s Frankfurt baggage service as a transshipment point for its smack.

Interfor pinpointed Syrian national Manzar al-Kassar as the head of the smuggling operation.  A separate investigation by Time magazine came to the exact same conclusion.  It went further, finding that al-Kassar was also part of a super-secret CIA cell code-named COREA.

Another group of CIA agents working to free the five CIA hostages held by William Buckley’s Hezbollah murderers, discovered that al-Kassar was allowed to continue smuggling heroin despite high-level CIA knowledge of his activities.  The Beirut hostage team had written and called CIA headquarters in Langley to file complaints about the al-Kassar ring.  They got no response.  So they decided to fly back to the US and inform their CIA bosses in person.  All six agents were on Pan Am 103 when it blew up.

Within an hour of the bombing CIA operatives arrived at the crash site wearing Pan Am uniforms. The agents removed a suitcase that belonged to one of the agents who died along with 269 others.  The suitcase most likely contained incriminating evidence regarding the involvement of both al-Kassar and the CIA’s COREA unit in the Syrian heroin smuggling ring.  It may also have contained a videotape of CIA Beirut Station Chief William Buckley’s confessions to his Hezbollah torturers, which could have further revealed CIA involvement in the Middle East drug trade.

Retired Air Force investigator Gene Wheaton thinks Colonel Charles McKee and the five other honorable CIA agents were the bomber’s primary targets.  Wheaton stated, “A couple of my old buddies in the Pentagon believe the Pan Am bombers were gunning for McKee’s hostage rescue team”.  Wheaton suspects CIA involvement in another plane crash that occurred shortly after the Pan Am bombing.  In that incident, 248 US soldiers returning from duty in Europe were killed when an Arrow Air military transport plane crashed near Gander, New Foundland.

Wheaton believes Arrow Air was a CIA airline and that the crash was related to a “covert operations deal gone bad” between the CIA and BCCI.  The day Arrow Air crashed two plainclothes men arrived on the scene and carried off a 70-pound duffle bag.  Wheaton thinks the bag was stuffed full of cash which BCCI had provided the CIA for a covert operation.  He thinks the CIA caused the crash to make it look to BCCI like the money burned, then arrived at the site to steal it, having wrapped it in fireproof material.  The CIA could then go to BCCI and shake them down again.  A short time later, BCCI/CIA relations soured.  CIA prepared to jump a sinking BCCI ship and stick the Third World poor with a Rothschild Bank of England shutdown.

The German Federal Police (BKA) raided a suspected terrorist safe house two months prior to the Lockerbie bombing.  They found a bomb identical to the one used on Flight 103.  All but one of the prisoners jailed after the raid were mysteriously released.  On the day of the bombing a BKA surveillance agent assigned to watch baggage noticed a different type of drug suitcase being used by al-Kassar’s people.  He informed his superiors who relayed the information to a CIA unit in Frankfurt.  Al-Kassar contacted the same CIA unit to them to let them know that McKee and the five other agents were flying home that day.  The CIA Frankfurt unit’s response to the BKA report was, “Don’t worry about it.  Don’t stop it.  Let it go.”

The US Embassy in Finland received a warning of a possible airline bombing for that day.  They shrugged it off despite another warning from the FAA.  A PBS Frontline investigation found evidence that the bomb was actually planted while Flight 103 stopped over at London’s Heathrow Airport.  A suitcase belonging to CIA agent Matthew Gannon, one of the five others on Colonel McKee’s team, was switched with bag at Heathrow.  Frontline believes Gannon’s suitcase may have contained information linking the Damascus-based COREA CIA cell with al-Kassar’s drug ring, so the suitcase was stolen and one containing the bomb was substituted for it.

According to the German newsweekly Stern, a Pan Am security official in Frankfurt was caught back-dating the critical warning which the FAA issued as soon as he received it.  Pan Am was fined $600,000 by the FAA after the bombing.  The agency cited lax security in Pan Am’s baggage handling operations.  According to the Interfor investigation these baggage operations were more than inept.  They had been taken over by al-Kassar.  In June 2007 Spanish police arrested al-Kassar for arms trafficking.

Pan Am has a long history of cozy relations with CIA.  Its international advisory board read like a Who’s Who in the Caribbean drugs for guns trade.  Members included Ronald Joseph Stark, the P-2 connected Brotherhood of Eternal Love LSD pusher; Sol Linowitz of Carl Lindner’s United Brands; Carter Secretary of State Cyrus Vance of the Lindner-controlled Gulf & Western Corporation; and Walter Sterling Surrey, OSS China hand who helped launch Guillermo Hernandez-Cartaya’s World Finance Corporation.

Both the US and Britain have engaged in a cover-up of the facts.  Columnist Jack Anderson reported a telephone conversation between President Bush Sr. and British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher after the crash in which both agreed that the investigation should be limited, so as not to harm the nations’ intelligence communities.  Paul Hudson, an Albany, NY attorney who heads the group “Families of Pan Am 103/Lockerbie”, lost his 16-year-old daughter in the crash.  “It appears that the government either has the facts and is covering them up, or doesn’t know all the facts and doesn’t want to know”, says Hudson.  In April 1990, the group’s British counterpart “U.K. Families-Flight 103” sent angry letters to both Bush and Thatcher which cited, “entirely believable published accounts…Both of you have decided to deliberately downplay the evidence and string out the investigation until the case can be dismissed as ancient history.”

Abdel Basset Ali al-Megrahi, one of the Libyans made patsy for the bombing, appealed his conviction in February 2002.  Central to his lawyer’s argument was new evidence that the baggage department at London Heathrow had been broken into the night before the bombing.

In 2010 the Libyans were suddenly released.  Rumors persist that their release was part of a BP oil deal with Libya.  Qaddafi made other overtures to the West.  But it was all for naught.  When you’re dealing with real madmen – as the Illuminati bankers certifiably are – concessions are rarely effective.  The Libyan people have lost the green flag that symbolized their revolutionary break from the bankster fold and have been returned to a life of colonialism, feudalism and monarchy.

Homeland Security to Establish TSA Checkpoints at Baseball Games

 

gloveOfficials are citing the Boston Bombing as a pretense to establish TSA checkpoints in sporting stadiums across the country.  It has been announced that a standardization process was recently enacted which will place checkpoints at every single major league baseball game by 2015.

The Seattle Mariners announced Tuesday that fans entering Safeco Field will have to walk through metal detectors starting with this year’s opening game.

Boston, the New York Mets, Oakland, Pittsburgh and San Francisco were among the teams that experimented with screening at times last year.

“This procedure, which results from MLB’s continuing work with the Department of Homeland Security to standardize security practices across the game, will be in addition to bag checks that are now uniform throughout MLB,” baseball spokesman Michael Teevan said Tuesday.

“We conducted testing of these measures at the All-Star game and at both World Series venues last year, and we were pleased that it was effective and received without issue from fans,” Teevan said.

The word “standardization” has become a buzz word for people advocating the expansion of the TSA.

“Every local airport has its own security arrangement with local police to some type of contract security force,” said J. David Cox Sr., president of the American Federation of Government Employees, which represents the TSA. “There is no standardization throughout the country. Every airport operates differently. Obviously at L.A. there were a fair number of local police officers there.”

By telling us that this is a part of a standardization process, these representatives are letting us know that the TSA is not just for airports and now public events, but will eventually be implemented in many vital parts of American life.

ALERT!!!!! – Diane Feinstein: First Amendment is a Special Privilege, Not A Right!

California Senator Dianne Feinstein has proposed an amendment to the Media Shield Law that would ignore the protection given by the First Amendment and would limit the law’s protection only to “real reporters,” not bloggers and other upstart alternative media types.

Shield laws in the United States

Life in the emerging American Police State: What’s in store for our freedoms in 2014?

policedhsIn Harold Ramis’ classic 1993 comedy Groundhog Day, TV weatherman Phil Connors (played by Bill Murray) is forced to live the same day over and over again until he not only gains some insight into his life but changes his priorities. Similarly, as I illustrate in my book A Government of Wolves: The Emerging American Police State, we in the emerging American police state find ourselves reliving the same set of circumstances over and over again – egregious surveillance, strip searches, police shootings of unarmed citizens, government spying, the criminalization of lawful activities, warmongering, etc. – although with far fewer moments of comic hilarity.

What remains to be seen is whether 2014 will bring more of the same or whether “we the people” will wake up from our somnambulist states. Indeed, when it comes to civil liberties and freedom, 2013 was far from a banner year. The following is just a sampling of what we can look forward to repeating if we don’t find some way to push back against the menace of an overreaching, aggressive, invasive, militarized government and restore our freedoms.

Government spying

It’s hard to understand how anyone could be surprised by the news that the National Security Agency has been systematically collecting information on all telephone calls placed in the United States, and yet the news media have treated it as a complete revelation. Nevertheless, such outlandish government spying been going on domestically since the 1970s, when Senator Frank Church (D-Ida.), who served as the chairman of the Select Committee on Intelligence that investigated the NSA’s breaches, warned the public against allowing the government to overstep its authority in the name of national security. Church recognized that such surveillance powers “at any time could be turned around on the American people, and no American would have any privacy left, such is the capability to monitor everything: telephone conversations, telegrams, it doesn’t matter. There would be no place to hide.” Recent reports indicate that the NSA, in conjunction with the CIA and FBI, has actually gone so far as to intercept laptop computers ordered online in order to install spyware on them.

Militarized police

With almost 13,000 agencies in all 50 states and four U.S. territories participating in a military “recycling” program, community police forces across the country continue to be transformed into outposts of the military, with police agencies acquiring military-grade hardware – tanks, weaponry, and other equipment designed for the battlefield – in droves. Keep in mind that once acquired, this military equipment, which is beyond the budget and scope of most communities, finds itself put to all manner of uses by local law enforcement agencies under the rationale that “if we have it, we might as well use it” – the same rationale, by the way, used with deadly results to justify assigning SWAT teams to carry out routine law enforcement work such as delivering a warrant.

Police shootings of unarmed citizens

Owing in large part to the militarization of local law enforcement agencies, not a week goes by without more reports of hair-raising incidents by police imbued with a take-no-prisoners attitude and a battlefield approach to the communities in which they serve. Sadly, it is no longer unusual to hear about incidents in which police shoot unarmed individuals first and ask questions later, such as the 16-year-old teenager who skipped school only to be shot by police after they mistook him for a fleeing burglar. Then there was the unarmed black man in Texas “who was pursued and shot in the back of the neck by Austin Police… after failing to properly identify himself and leaving the scene of an unrelated incident.” And who could forget the 19-year-old Seattle woman who was accidentally shot in the leg by police after she refused to show her hands? The lesson to be learned: this is what happens when you take a young man (or woman), raise him on a diet of violence, hype him up on the power of the gun in his holster and the superiority of his uniform, render him woefully ignorant of how to handle a situation without resorting to violence, train him well in military tactics but allow him to be illiterate about the Constitution, and never stress to him that he is to be a peacemaker and a peacekeeper, respectful of and subservient to the taxpayers, who are in fact his masters and employers.

The erosion of private property

If the government can tell you what you can and cannot do within the privacy of your home, whether it relates to what you eat or what you smoke, you no longer have any rights whatsoever within your home. If government officials can fine and arrest you for growing vegetables in your front yard, praying with friends in your living room, installing solar panels on your roof, and raising chickens in your backyard, you’re no longer the owner of your property. If school officials can punish your children for what they do or say while at home or in your care, your children are not your own – they are the property of the state. If government agents can invade your home, break down your doors, kill your dog, damage your furnishings and terrorize your family, your property is no longer private and secure – it belongs to the government. Likewise, if police can forcefully draw your blood, strip search you, and probe you intimately, your body is no longer your own, either. This is what a world without the Fourth Amendment looks like, where the lines between private and public property have been so blurred that private property is reduced to little more than something the government can use to control, manipulate and harass you to suit its own purposes, and you the homeowner and citizen have been reduced to little more than a tenant or serf in bondage to an inflexible landlord.

Strip searches and the loss of bodily integrity

The Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution was intended to protect the citizenry from being subjected to “unreasonable searches and seizures” by government agents. While the literal purpose of the amendment is to protect our property and our bodies from unwarranted government intrusion, the moral intention behind it is to protect our human dignity. Unfortunately, court rulings undermining the Fourth Amendment and justifying invasive strip searches have left us powerless against police empowered to forcefully draw our blood, strip search us, and probe us intimately. For example, during a routine traffic stop, Leila Tarantino was allegedly subjected to two roadside strip searches in plain view of passing traffic, while her two children – ages 1 and 4 – waited inside her car. During the second strip search, presumably in an effort to ferret out drugs, a female officer “forcibly removed” a tampon from Tarantino. No contraband or anything illegal was found.

Invasion of the drones

As corporations and government agencies alike prepare for their part in the coming drone invasion – it is expected that at least 30,000 drones will occupy U.S. airspace by 2020, ushering in a $30 billion per year industry – it won’t be long before Americans discover first-hand that drones – unmanned aerial vehicles – come in all shapes and sizes, from nano-sized drones as small as a grain of sand that can do everything from conducting surveillance to detonating explosive charges, to middle-sized copter drones that can deliver pizzas to massive “hunter/killer” Predator warships that unleash firepower from on high. Police in California have already begun using cube drones, which are capable of hovering for 40 minutes at heights of about 400 ft. to conduct surveillance on targets as far as 1 kilometer away. Michael Downing, the LAPD deputy chief for counter-terrorism and special operations, envisions drones being flown over large-scale media events such as the Oscars, using them to surveil political protests, and flying them through buildings to track criminal suspects.

Criminalizing childish behavior

It wouldn’t be a week in America without another slew of children being punished for childish behavior under the regime of zero tolerance which plagues our nation’s schools. Some of the most egregious: the 9-year-old boy suspended for allegedly pointing a toy at a classmate and saying “bang, bang”; two 6-year-old students in Maryland suspended for using their fingers as imaginary guns in a schoolyard game of cops and robbers; the ten-year-old Pennsylvania boy suspended for shooting an imaginary “arrow” at a fellow classmate, using nothing more than his hands and his imagination; the six-year-old Colorado boy suspended and accused of sexual harassment for kissing the hand of a girl in his class whom he had a crush on; and the two seventh graders in Virginia suspended for the rest of the school year for playing with air soft guns in their own yard before school.

Common Core

There are several methods for controlling a population. You can intimidate the citizenry into obedience through force, relying on military strength and weaponry such as SWAT team raids, militarized police, and a vast array of lethal and nonlethal weapons. You can manipulate them into marching in lockstep with your dictates through the use of propaganda and carefully timed fear tactics about threats to their safety, whether through the phantom menace of terrorist attacks or shooting sprees by solitary gunmen. Or you can indoctrinate them into compliance from an early age through the schools, discouraging them from thinking for themselves while rewarding them for regurgitating whatever the government, through its so-called educational standards, dictates they should be taught. When viewed in light of the government’s ongoing attempts to amass power at great cost to Americans – in terms of free speech rights, privacy, due process, etc. – the debate over Common Core State Standards, which would transform and nationalize school curriculum from kindergarten through 12th grade, becomes that much more critical. These standards, which were developed through a partnership between big government and corporations and are being rolled out in 45 states and the District of Columbia, will create a generation of test-takers capable of little else, molded and shaped by the federal government and its corporate allies into what it considers to be ideal citizens.

The corporate takeover of America

The corporate buyout of the American political bureaucracy is taking place at every level of government, from the White House all the way to the various governors’ mansions, and even local city councils. With Big Business and Big Government having fused into a corporate state, the president and his state counterparts – the governors, have become little more than CEOs of the Corporate State, which day by day is assuming more government control over our lives. The average American has no access to his or her representatives at any but the lowest level of government, and even then it’s questionable how much really gets through. Never before have average Americans had so little say in the workings of their government and even less access to their so-called representatives. Yet one of the key ingredients in maintaining democratic government is the right of citizens to freely speak their minds to those who represent them. In fact, it is one of the few effective tools we have left to combat government corruption and demand accountability. But now, even that right is being chipped away by laws and court rulings that weaken our ability to speak freely to the politicians who govern us.

James Madison, the father of the Constitution, put it best: “Take alarm,” he warned, “at the first experiment with liberties.” Anyone with even a casual knowledge about current events knows that the first experiment on our freedoms happened long ago. Worse, we have not heeded the warnings of Madison and those like him who understood that if you give the government an inch, they will take a mile. Unfortunately, the government has not only taken a mile, they have taken mile after mile after mile after mile with seemingly no end in sight for their power grabs.

If you’re in the business of making New Year’s resolutions, why not resolve that 2014 will be the year we break the cycle of tyranny and get back on the road to freedom. As I’ve said before, it’s time for a second American revolution.
