Is Putin Being Lured Into a Trap?

Russia is not responsible for the crisis in Ukraine. The US State Department engineered the fascist-backed coup that toppled Ukraine’s democratically-elected president Viktor Yanukovych and replaced him with the American puppet Arseniy Yatsenyuk, a former banker. Hacked phone calls reveal the critical role that Washington played in orchestrating the putsch and selecting the coup’s leaders.

Fighting back against corporatocracy and Big Monopolies

"Freedom" and "democracy" are useful words, but very bankrupt: useful because they serve to advance imperial/corporate agendas, bankrupt because they are empty vessels perennially co-opted.

When illegal coups are orchestrated to overthrow democratically elected governments in Venezuela, Honduras, Ukraine or elsewhere, the lies of freedom and democracy are seamlessly attached to the criminal acts.

"Freedom" and "democracy" are still cloaking, tacitly or overtly, mass murder and genocide in Iraq, at this moment.

As long as the masses are fooled, conquest and regime change, not democracy and freedom, are enabled and perpetuated. Illegal coups and wars of aggression are about imperial control, setting up puppet dictators and the imposition of neoliberal economic business models for the corporate extensions of the invading nations.

Scientists find multiple problems with GMOs

A February 2014 U.S. Department of Agriculture report declared what many scientists already knew: There are no significant differences in yields of GMO and non-GMO crops. When asked about the USDA report, the chief technology officer for Monsanto declared, "American farmers are smart and wouldn't [adopt] a technology that didn't have tangible benefits."

Are the USDA and scientists around the world wrong in their conclusion about failure to yield? No.

Agro-economists have shown repeatedly that the best-yielding, most-affordable crop varieties, to "feed the world", are those derived from conventional non-GMO hybrids (U.N Commission on Trade and Development).

The Obamacare Taxman Cometh (Again)

The latest and greatest Affordable Care Act revenue raisers include an excise tax on medical devices, an increase in the Medicare payroll tax from 2.8 to 3.8 percent for couples earning more than $250,000 annually, and limits on flexible spending accounts.

This chart from the Heritage Foundation is slightly older, so its totals aren't quite up to the minute, but it gives you an idea of the tax hikes included in the law, the dates they go into effect, and the amount of revenue they are expected to raise.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If there are these huge tax increases to pay for Obamacare, then why did the insurance rates skyrocket and the deductibles go through the roof?

Someone is making a ton of cash on this deal!

BLM Attempting to Seize 90,000 Acres of Texas Ranchers' Land!

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation." -- Fifth Amendment to the Constitution

Article I, Section 8, Clause 17 of the Constitution, known as the Enclave Clause, limits Federal Ownership of land only to land underneath Federal Government buildings and military bases. The Tenth Amendment prohibits the Federal Government from presuming a greater right to grab land for turtles, fracking, or other corporate endeavor.

So the BLM is acting unconstitutionally and illegally, and citizens have a legal right, under the United States Supreme Court ruling in John Bad Elk vs United States, to resist such illegal activity up to and including the use of lethal force.

US Is an Oligarchy Not a Democracy, says Scientific Study

"Despite the seemingly strong empirical support in previous studies for theories of majoritarian democracy, our analyses suggest that majorities of the American public actually have little influence over the policies our government adopts. Americans do enjoy many features central to democratic governance, such as regular elections, freedom of speech and association, and a widespread (if still contested) franchise. But, ..." and then they go on to say, it's not true, and that, "America's claims to being a democratic society are seriously threatened" by the findings in this, the first-ever comprehensive scientific study of the subject, which shows that there is instead "the nearly total failure of 'median voter' and other Majoritarian Electoral Democracy theories [of America].

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The USA has a government of the money junkies, for the money junkies, and by the money junkies. We the People have absolutely no power over policies whatsoever.

We have a kabuki-like process of elections which mean absolutely nothing in terms of bettering the lives of working Americans; but at the end of the day, those who are ultimately vetted, then allowed to run, are simply tools of the oligarchs.

The only people who count to those who wind up elected, to any level of government, are those who fund election cycles in return for certain "favors" their businesses need.

And if you have a hard time wrapping your head around that, just remember what happened to the Patriot Act, where vaccine makers became held harmless and were indemnified against any actions by people who were injured by their vaccines.

Pretty sweet, isn't it; if you are a vaccine maker, of course. And the burden of proof is so intense that it is very rare that a case of injury ever makes it to the so-called vaccine court.

People dying, and getting maimed for life in wars, ultimately for private profit, do not matter in the greater scheme of things to those who rule, and are completely expendable. Please do remember that the next time this country is exhorted to the next war or wars, which will probably go at least as well as did the war in Iraq and Afghanistan for the people of the countries we are going to "liberate" next.

The older I get (and I turn 65 next month), the more viscerally Quaker I have become about war.

Having lived through Vietnam War, acutely remembering those of my college friends who didn't come back, or emotionally, didn't come back all the way, I see war as the lousiest possible option. Good faith negotiations, done with integrity, is always preferable to war.

And remember: it is never the children of the financially elite who get put in harm's way; it's always "other people's kids".

Police begin spying on every citizen in real-time

A retired Air Force veteran named Ross McNutt and his Ohio-based company, Persistent Surveillance Systems, persuaded the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department to use his surveillance technology to monitor Compton’s streets from the air and track suspects from the moment the snatching occurred.

The system, known as wide-area surveillance, is something of a time machine – the entire city is filmed and recorded in real time. Imagine Google Earth with a rewind button and the ability to play back the movement of cars and people as they scurry about the city.

“We literally watched all of Compton during the time that we were flying, so we could zoom in anywhere within the city of Compton and follow cars and see people,” McNutt said. “Our goal was to basically jump to where reported crimes occurred and see what information we could generate that would help investigators solve the crimes.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The short answer is, such surveillance, even against the most innocent of American people, will not end, either soon...or peacefully.

BOSTON WRONG

I work at a group home.

And I recall one of the residents a while back watching the Jodi Arias trial on the TV, so we saw hours and hours of detailed examination of that murder case.

If we had a real press, we would get that sort of nuanced, enthusiastic, full-blown coverage and discussion of the Boston bombing, the Sandy Hook case, 911, the anthrax scare, the RFK, MLK and JFK murders, not to mention Waco and Oklahoma City, and this would not be a nation headed full-speed down hill with the brakes blown, toward fascism.

The video you can view online of the law enforcement officers forcing the people out of their homes in Watertown, Massachusetts reminds me of being herded off the prison bus into the federal penitentiary at Terre Haute with rifles and shotguns pointed at us. You know at that point that America is not what it says it is, and you are not who you thought you were.

Tony Blair, George W. Bush and David Cameron: Hi-jacking God?

When Tony Blair was in residence, according to the diaries of his former communications director, Alastair Campbell, before the illegal invasion of Iraq, for which Blair's Downing Street offices produced fantasy, fictional, false justifications, the then Prime Minister was guided by his faith and regularly spoke to "his Maker." Blair may have "spoken" - but, as ever, he clearly didn't listen.

Proverbs (6:16-19) rules on six personality traits his "Maker" abhors and seven that are an abomination to Him: "Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that make haste to run to evil, a false witness who breathes out lies, and one who sows discord ..." Blair ticks every box, shattering any claim to his trumpeted Christian principles.

False witness is also slammed by King Solomon and in Matthew (15:18-20) Jesus condemns false testimony as defiling to any person.

Utah cops warrantlessly search prescription drug records of 480 emergency personnel

Utah law enforcement officials searched, without a warrant, the prescription drug records of 480 public paramedics, firefighters and other personnel to try to figure out who was stealing morphine from emergency vehicles.

This type of snooping doesn't require crypto-cracking technology or other National Security Agency spying tools disclosed by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden. All it took was a law enforcement official's hunch in this case to search every member of the Unified Fire Authority's prescription records.

The American Civil Liberties Union on Monday derided the 2013 dragnet search as "shocking" and called it a "disregard for basic legal protections" to provide law enforcement with "unfettered" access to such private data.

Barack Obama and the BLM Land Grab: The Evil Agenda of Communist Takeover

My Father used to tell me that the president was a figure-head and that he could do nothing without Congress.

Dad was wrong.

Though there may have been a time when this was somewhat true, during the Barack Obama presidency this theory has been ripped to shreds.

Harry Reid and the Bureau of Land Management are easy targets in the Cliven Bundy land grab case but, as usual, there are higher powers that are pulling the strings. The White House was quiet during this incident, which should have been our first clue that Barack Obama was involved and simply attempting to avoid the bad public relations that might result.

Sen. Reid on Cattle Battle: "It's not over"

Senate majority leader Harry Reid hasn't been very vocal about the cattle battle showdown in recent days, but says "it's not over."

Reid tells News4's Samantha Boatman his take on the so-called cattle battle in southern Las Vegas. "Well, it's not over. We can't have an American people that violate the law and then just walk away from it. So it's not over," Reid said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The law is not on the side of Harry Reid, or his donor Harvey Whittemore, who has plans to commercially develop that land the Bundy ranch is currently on. Nor is the law on the side of Rory Reid, Harry's son, who was hired by Chinese energy firm ENN Energy Group to obtain the land for a solar power plant, purchasing $38 million worth of public lands for just $4.5 million in a sweetheart deal.

The Bundy Family purchased all of that land in 1877, only to have it seized by the government in the 1930s. This violated Article 1, Section 8, Clause 17 of the Constitution, known as the Enclave Clause, which limits the Federal Government to owning land ONLY for Federal Buildings and military installations, NOT seizing millions of acres of private and public lands to be sold to corporations or pledged as collateral on out-of-control government borrowing.

Then there is the Homestead law, which says ownership of the land belongs to those who have lived on the land and developed it, which the Bundys have done in an unbroken chain since 1887.

The BLM does not have legal jurisdiction as the land in question is actually under state control.

So Mr. Reid does not in fact have the law on his side. He just wants the land for his political cronies and cares not about the rightful owners. The Bundys and the patriots standing with him are defending the Constitutional rights of all Americans against a central tyrannical government which operated outside of the legal authority granted to it by the Constitution for decades. That Constitution IS the original Contract With America, and the Federal Government is lawful and legitimate only when it complies with the rules and restrictions We The People set forth in that document.

UPDATE: I posted the above comment to the NBC website, and it is nowhere to be seen, although one other comment refers to it. So it seems that NBC decided that the fact that the Federal Land Grab is a violation of the Constitution is not something their readers need to know!

Judge: Feds can hide rationale for killing U.S. citizen

A Bay Area federal judge says the Obama administration can keep secret a memo spelling out the legal rationale for a 2011 drone attack in Yemen that killed a U.S. citizen and alleged terrorist mastermind.

The Justice Department was entitled to withhold the memo on the grounds of national security and lawyer-client confidentiality, Chief U.S. District Judge Claudia Wilken of Oakland said Friday.

Although U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder and other Obama administration officials have made public statements justifying drone strikes, Wilken said none of them was specific enough for her to rule against the government's claim of secrecy and require officials to disclose the legal rationale for the Yemen attack.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Wow, the Obama administration must be ecstatic about that: now, they have an "open season" to kill any Americans, even here in the mainland, they want to kill for any reason, and do not have to provide a rationale for these murders.

Wave goodbye to due process, because this Judge has just well and truly flushed it down the drain.

People with kids and skills, get the hell out of this country now: your window for leaving is closing exponentially.

Did the Department of Homeland Security Just Admit that the Government Knew about the Heartbleed Bug?

Matt Stoller tweets:

DHS says #Heartbleed didn’t affect government websites. That is… peculiar.

Perhaps there is an innocent explanation … The government doesn’t use OpenSSL on its websites?

Nope … Security firm Codenomicon – which discovered the Heartbleed virus – reports:

You are likely to be affected either directly or indirectly. OpenSSL is the most popular open source cryptographic library and TLS (transport layer security) implementation used to encrypt traffic on the Internet. Your popular social site, your company’s site, commercial site, hobby site, sites you install software from or even sites run by your government might be using vulnerable OpenSSL.

Did DHS just unintentionally admit that the government knew about Heartbleed years ago and patched its own websites … without telling the tech community about it?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

More than likely the NSA compromised OpenSSL just as it has compromised every publicly available encryption system including RSA. So, the government exposed us all to cyber-criminals just so they could look inside your web traffic and steal your business secrets or find information you can be blackmailed with.

Following release of report, rights groups calling for removal of mayor and police chief

Residents of Albuquerque, New Mexico are marching on the police department Saturday to demand retribution against the city's mayor and police chief for their role in the police force's documented "execution" of citizens.

The march comes after the Department of Justice slammed the Albuquerque Police Department for their frequent use of excessive and lethal force in a damning report released on Thursday.

Though, according to advocates, abuse by local law enforcement has been systemic for years, calls for increased scrutiny of the APD were amplified following the police shooting death of James Boyd, a homeless man suffering from mental illness, on March 16.

Advocates welcomed the DOJ's findings, saying the report was "spot on" in terms of identifying the root causes of this behavior, such as the "aggressive culture of the department" and the way in which "force is prioritized in training."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The problem has boiled over in Albuquerque, but is not unique to that city, in New Mexico and for the following reasons, reported in progressnownm:

A New Mexico State Police officer made national news in October when he opened fire on a van full of children after the mother drove away from a rural traffic stop. Governor Martinez supported the firing of the officer saying: ‘Noting that her husband was a police officer for more than 30 years, the governor said, “You don’t use deadly force against someone who is not threatening you with deadly force..” ’ But that’s not the message our cops are getting. Just two months after that incredible shooting – while the Albuquerque Police Department is under DOJ scrutiny for the shooting of 22 residents, 13 fatal, in just two years – the Santa Fe New Mexican and Albuquerque Journal report that the state’s law enforcement academy board hired a “paramilitary” director, eliminated public oversight or comment on training and cut police training on community policing and reducing fear, changed physical standards to limit the ability of women to quality and now implemented a “Shoot First” training program so bad at least one instructor refused to teach it. In September, the state’s eight-member Law Enforcement Academy Board, which is appointed by the governor and chaired by the attorney general, voted unanimously to change the New Mexico Administrative Code to give complete control over the curriculum to Jones. Greg Williams, an Albuquerque attorney and president-elect of the New Mexico Foundation for Open Government, said before the board voted on the change, it had a process that included public involvement. “What they did was to change the process so that the public could not be involved,” he said…

Unless and until Jones is sacked, New Mexican police will continue to translate "to protect and serve" as meaning "to maim and kill with impunity", unfortunately.

I would currently describe New Mexico as "The Land of DIS-enchantment", and encourage any potential tourists to avoid it like they would the plague, because being in that state may be VERY hazardous to one's health, under current law enforcement conditions.

US land claims in Bundy case based on lie-started, treaty-violating, unlawful war on Mexico

*hyperlinks live at source*

"The only thing new in the world is the history you don't know."  
- President Harry Truman, Plain Speaking: An Oral Biography of Harry S. Truman (1974), Merle Miller, pg. 26.

The Bundy land case raises questions of US federal authority on the ~80% of Nevada they claim to “own.” It’s also a spark for Americans to act on a local issue within a context of US government “leaders” engaging in OBVIOUS crimes centering in war, money, and media (also in ~100 other crucial areas).
US land claims (and here) in Nevada and throughout the US Southwest originate in similar crimes to current US lie-started, treaty-violating, unlawful Wars of Aggression. These claims are from violating treaties with Native Americans, and a lie-started, treaty-violating, unlawful invasive war on Mexico.

UN Small Arms Treaty: Eighty Million Determined Gun Owners Should be Quite an Obstacle To Its Enforcement

I want to talk about the United Nations Small Arms Treaty. I have written a couple of articles about it before, but in light of some recent developments, like the European Union calling for the ratification of the treaty among European Union states, it may be time to discuss it again. Also, let's not forget the UN just issued resolution 2117, which calls for member states to collect civilian arms and destroy them. My friends, you only need to look at Australia, Canada and Britain to see that civilian disarmament is their goal.

BLM Selling Out America

Real estate expert Fabian Calvo thinks the recent standoff between the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and Nevada cattle rancher Cliven Bundy is about much more than grazing rights. Even though this standoff is over, we find out It’s really about sweetheart deals for federal land. Calvo says, “The hair on the back of my neck stood up when I was doing research for this and speaking to some of my contacts on Wall Street. The BLM is part of the Department of the Interior, and look at what they have been doing? Through the BLM, the Department of the Interior has been confiscating land and going after land, for example, in the high desert in California and all over the place. What I am hearing is they are categorizing this land for future collateralization or to sell off. In the Weimar (Germany) hyperinflation, after the hyperinflation, what did they back their currency with? They backed it with mortgages and they backed it with land.

Another Phony Budget Debate

Anyone watching last week's debate over the Republican budget resolution would have experienced déjà vu, as the debate bore a depressing similarity to those of previous years. Once again, the Republicans claimed their budget would cut spending in a responsible manner, while Democratic opponents claimed the plan's spending cuts would shred the safety net and leave vital programs unfunded. Of course, neither claim is true.

The budget does not cut spending at all, and in fact actually increases spending by $1.5 trillion over ten years. The Republicans are using the old DC trick of spending less than originally planned and calling that reduced spending increase a $5.1 trillion cut in spending. Only in DC could a budget that increases spending by 3.5 percent per year instead of by 5.2 percent per year be attacked as a "slash-and-burn" plan.

Nevada ranch standoff could leave dirt on Harry Reid’s reputation

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat.

The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev.

PHOTOS: Conservatives in Hollywood: Celebrities who lean right

Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch as a result of safety concerns after clashes between law enforcement and the Bundy family’s growing legion of supporters.

Washington Is Humanity’s Worst Enemy — Paul Craig Roberts

How does Washington get away with the claim that the country it rules is a democracy and has freedom? This absurd claim ranks as one of the most unsubstantiated claims in history.

There is no democracy whatsoever. Voting is a mask for rule by a few powerful interest groups. In two 21st century rulings (Citizens United and McCutcheon), the US Supreme Court has ruled that the purchase of the US government by private interest groups is merely the exercise of free speech. These rulings allow powerful corporate and financial interests to use their money-power to elect a government that serves their interests at the expense of the general welfare.

The control private interests exercise over the government is so complete that private interests have immunity to prosecution for crimes. At his retirement party on March 27, Securities and Exchange Commission prosecutor James Kidney stated that his prosecutions of Goldman Sachs and other “banks too big to fail” were blocked by superiors who “were focused on getting high-paying jobs after their government service.”

Diplomat who won EU exit essay prize silenced by government

After he picked up an £80,000 prize for an essay on how Britain could leave the European Union, Iain Mansfield was poised to become a new, intellectual voice in the media debate on the issue.
There was one snag, however. Mr Mansfield is a civil servant and his essay appears to have been rather too well-argued for his employer, the UK Government, which remains committed to staying within the EU.

Having accepted the prize at a ceremony in Westminster on Tuesday evening, Mr Mansfield was told he was banned from giving media interviews. His regular blog on economic affairs also appears to have been removed from the internet.

The Regime Doesn’t Handle Defeat Gracefully

When the ATF attacked the Branch Davidians outside Waco in February 1993, the expectation was a quick and painless victory over an eccentric religious sect and a public relations boost for the scandal-plagued agency. This is why the assault was code-named “Showtime.”

The Davidians, however, refused to follow the script. When the ATF stormtroopers arrived at the sect’s sanctuary at Mt. Carmel, David Koresh – who had known of the impending assault, and released an ATF informant rather than holding him as a hostage — attempted to de-escalate the confrontation, only to be answered by a murderous volley of gunfire. Rather than allowing themselves to be shackled or slaughtered, the Davidians stood their ground, killing four of the assailants in a morally unassailable exercise of self-defense and forcing the ATF to retreat.

DHS Insider: Bundy Ranch Standoff Not Over! Military, Federal Agents Seen Moving In

In this episode of The Truth Is Viral, host Bobby Powell puts together several pieces of information that have surfaced sine the BLM “withdrew” and conceded to the demands of Cliven Bundy. Bundy is the Nevada rancher who stood toe-to-toe with nearly 1,000 heavily federal agents for over a week. Fortunately for Bundy, thousands of unarmed protestors – and militia that were armed just as well as the federal agents were standing shoulder-to-shoulder with him.

But, as reported to investigative journalist Doug Hagmann – co-host of the Hagmann and Hagmann report along with his son Joe – by a highly-placed source inside the Department of Homeland Security, the BLM withdrawal was a fake. The entire standoff was, according to Hagmann’s DHS informant, a real world exercise designed to determine what kind of resistance the federal government will face should gun confiscations begin.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Note sure if this is true or not. However I do not expect the Federal Government to accept this humiliation. They will be back. The land-grab is on and the government will be back at the Bundy's and anywhere else they want.

Who actually “owns” America’s land? A deeper look at the Bundy Ranch crisis

Turtles and cows have absolutely no relevance to the situation in Nevada. Does the Constitution make provision for the federal government to own and control “public land”? This is the only question we need to consider. Currently, the federal government “owns” approximately 30% of the United States territory. The majority of this federally owned land is in the West. For example, the feds control more than 80% of Nevada and more than 55% of Utah. The question has been long debated. At the debate’s soul is Article IV, Section 3, Clause 2 of the Constitution, which is know as the “Property Clause”. Proponents of federal expansion on both sides of the political aisle argue that this clause provides warrant for the federal government to control land throughout the United States.

The Congress shall have Power to dispose of and make all needful Rules and Regulations respecting the Territory or other Property belonging to the United States….

Harry Reid, Son's Solar Power Scheme Linked to Bundy Ranch Standoff

Follow the money and you'll inevitably find out what's really going on.

In the case of Clark County, Nevada, rancher Cliven Bundy's standoff with federal agents from the Bureau of Land Management, the leading explanation has been that he hasn't paid grazing fees and his cattle threaten endangered desert tortoises in the Gold Butte area.

But the fact of the BLM bringing in hundreds of armed rangers with trucks and helicopters seemed over the top for protection of a tortoise that has clearly survived despite more than a century of ranching by the Bundy family, and which the BLM had previously been slaughtering with the excuse that it lacked funding to care for the animals.

As reported by the Associated Press in August, the Desert Tortoise Conservation Center in Southern Las Vegas, funded by the BLM, was looking at killing half of its 1,400 tortoises because it could not afford to keep its doors open since the housing collapse resulted in less income from developers.

Leaked Memo Uncovers Obama Administration Land Grab

Worse, this land grab would dry up tax revenue that’s essential for funding schools, firehouses and community centers.

President Obama could enact the plans in this memo with just the stroke of a pen, without any input from the communities affected by it.

‘The war has just begun’: Bundy supporters mobilize, aim to take back confiscated cattle

Just an hour after U.S. Officials called off the roundup of Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy’s cattle due to safety concerns, hundreds of ranchers and supporters — some armed — have mobilized with the intent to free cattle confiscated by the federal agents.

After Bureau of Land Management director Neil Kornze gave the order to cease herding the cattle, Mr. Bundy demanded that all national park service employees working on the cattle roundup operation be disarmed before 10:45 a.m. the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported.

The Corporate Colonization of Afghanistan

A recent TIME Magazine article featured the “US NGO” Roots for Peace, which it portrayed as a victim of a regrouping Taliban bent on subjugating a newly “democratized” Afghanistan. This organization, funded by the US State Department and USAID, claims to be turning “battlefields into bountiful orchards.” But a lack of transparency makes it unclear as to just how they are doing this. With USAID using “aid” to usher in the corporate colonization of Afghanistan through other “NGOs,” its involvement with Roots for Peace raises warranted suspicions.

Alternative media upstages lamestream media in world-class coverage of historic Bundy Ranch showdown

One of the most extraordinary stories in the history of American journalism took place this last week, and the mainstream (liberal) media was AWOL the entire time. An historical showdown between heavily armed federal agents (BLM) and armed American citizens unfolded near Bunkerville, Nevada, where the Bundy family announced they were taking a stand against a federal land grab and cattle theft operation masterminded by federal agents working at the BLM.

The showdown ended in a complete victory for Citizens vs. government tyranny as the feds effectively surrendered, announced their evacuation and agreed to release all the cattle they had stolen. See the photo below for a snapshot of the history the mainstream media stupidly decided to ignore.

Mainstream media was ordered to ignore the story - and they complied

Webmaster's Commentary: 

For those of you still wondering whether you should trust the independent media or the corporate media, this has to be the wake-up call.

Reid smelling anything but rosy in ranch fight

When Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy refused to take his cattle off land the federal government demanded for the habitat of an endangered desert tortoise, it focused the nation’s attention on an arena Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev., may have preferred to be kept quiet.

An investigative report published last week by Infowars.com drew a connection between Senate Majority Leader Reid’s involvement with Chinese energy giant ENN, Chinese efforts to build massive solar facilities in the Nevada desert and the showdown between Bundy and the U.S. Bureau of Land Management, or BLM.

Bus Driver Fired for Picking Up Freezing Kids in Her SUV when Bus Broke Down

Folks, Canadian school bus driver Kendra Lindon was about to pick up kids on a freezing cold day when her bus broke down. Other recent times this had happened, she recalled, no replacement bus arrived. And so, with windchill temperatures dipping to -37 C (-34 F), she took matters into her own hands and picked up the few students along her route in her own SUV.

From there, Lindon planned to keep the kids, including her own son, warm until another bus arrived — no frostbite, no problems.

Or so she thought.

It turns out another parent had watched Lindon picking up the kids, including two boys who had to sit in the rear cargo hold, where there were no seat belts.

Concerned, the parent contacted First Student — and that afternoon, Lindon was fired.

Secret audio recording from Bundy Ranch reveals BLM Special Agent Dan Love and Pete Santilli threatening each other with arrest over violations of U.S. Constitution

Natural News has obtained and is now releasing a secret audio recording of a conversation that took place Thursday, April 10th, between Daniel P. Love, Special Agent in Charge of Region 3 of the BLM and Guerilla Media Network radio host Pete Santilli, serving in the role as a communications liaison between the armed citizen protesters and the BLM.

In this recording, you can hear Daniel Love and Pete Santilli discussing life-and-death confrontations, during which Santilli says Daniel Love and the Sheriff of the county will be arrested if they do not uphold their oath to the United States Constitution.

This audio gives us all a special look inside the twisted mind of BLM Special Agent Dan Love who functions as an agent of government tyranny operating in complete violation of the U.S. Constitution even while telling himself he's backed by the Constitution!

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This conversation shows that the Federal thugs have been brainwashed into thinking they have the law and the Constitution on their side. But clearly they do not. BLM Special Agent Love was flat-out wrong when he declared that they were on Federal Land. It was state land, and under the Constitution it should never have been confiscated from the Bundy family in the first place.

No doubt every Federal thug has been told the law and the Constitution in on their side, even down to the ones trolling these websites trying to cause trouble. But I know from my own conversation with a local police officer that they do not in fact know what is in the Constitution. They are not encouraged to read it, only "take it on faith" that what their Israeli trainers tell them is true. Any police officers actually daring to read the Constitution and ask questions are "encouraged" to leave, just as former IRS investigator Joe Banister was "encouraged" to leave when he actually started reading the tax code and just as I was "encouraged" to leave my childhood church after I actually read the bible. Tyrants have no use for anyone who actually knows what is going on and can gainsay their claims.

So, the lesson from the Bundy Ranch is that it is a waste of time trying to argue the law and the Constitution with these Federal thugs because they are absolutely brainwashed into thinking they are right and not to listen to anyone else, to make them more effective thugs. The only way We The People will peacefully stop the illegal and unconstitutional actions of this government is to stand up to them in superior numbers so that they back down, as they just did in Nevada. BLM Special Agent Love is wholly ignorant of the Constitution and law and it is very dangerous to allow an ignorant man to have a gun and a badge. This is why. since 9-11, the police forces of the United States have murdered more than 8 times as many innocent Americans as the terrorists have.

And here is a special message to BLM Special Agent Love. Hitler told his thugs that everything they did was the letter of the law. Think carefully about how the world views all those German officials who went along with that. Is that how you want to be remembered by your grandchildren?

Vet to US military, all with Oaths: Defend US from domestic terrorism of US ‘leadership’

*hyperlinks/video live at source*

Air Force veteran Kristen Meghan’s 4-minute video calls on active US military, veterans, and all with Oaths to the US Constitution to honor and enact that Oath: “defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.” Her 2-minute part 2 emphasizes US “leadership” as those responsible for this terrorism. Dr. Martin King also came to this conclusion.

US foreign wars are unlawful, and therefore acts of terrorism.
US action at Bundy Ranch to take land violates the US Constitution.
Both of these unconstitutional acts, foreign and domestic, are based on lies from US “leadership” with apparent age-old motivation to control resources.

Monsanto Terminator Seeds and RoundUp Herbicide in Afghanistan: The Destruction of Agriculture

....As part of efforts to eradicate poppy cultivation across the country, the United States insisted that Kabul sidestep health studies and sign off on an unpopular plan to spray millions of dollars worth of Monsanto’s “RoundUp” glyphosate herbicide across Afghanistan’s countryside. It should be noted that before NATO’s intervention in Afghanistan in 2001, poppy cultivation was nearly eradicated under the Taliban.

In addition to fears that the mass spraying of Afghanistan’s countryside could negatively impact the health of the Afghan people, there were also fears that licit crops could also be destroyed, leaving farmers with failed harvests, anger, and a willingness to further align themselves with armed tribesmen, including the Taliban.

For America’s overarching plan, the eradication of licit crops alongside poppy was ideal. That is because while Monsanto RoundUp herbicide was to be sprayed indiscriminately over the heads of Afghans, its genetically modified, RoundUp Ready terminator seeds were to be sown beneath their feet. The Nutrition and Education International (NEI), a front set up by Western agricultural monopolies, set out to replace Afghanistan’s traditional crops with both Monsanto’s genetically engineered RoundUp Ready soybeans, as well as copious amounts of RoundUp ready herbicide.

BREAKING: Cowboys on Horseback Move in to Reclaim Bundy Cattle Stolen By BLM

Following the surprise announcement by Clark County’s Sheriff Douglas Gillespie this morning of a deal brokered to end the BLM’s occupation of the Bundy Ranch and Gold Butte, rancher Cliven Bundy has moved to reclaim some of his cattle previously stolen by the BLM.

After the Sheriff’s statement on stage at Camp Bunkerville, Cliven Bundy then made a list of demands, calling for the US Federal government’s 200 armed BLM agents to wrap-up their operation, and that they should begin “disarming the park service rangers”, and remove their equipment and structures to be “torn down immediately – within the hour”.

The last rancher in southern Nevada has won a battle over the federal government's round up of his cattle on public land after a week-long standoff with agents.

The Bureau of Land Management announced today that it would stop trying to seize the cattle of Cliven Bundy after armed militia gathered in Nevada.

Shortly after the deal was agreed, about 100 armed protesters, some on horse back, headed to a corral to demand the BLM also hands back cattle it had already taken.

Rancher Cliven Bundy demanded of sheriff Doug Gillespie that all narional park service employees working on the cattle roundup operation be disarmed before 10:45 a.m.

He gave Gillespie one hour to comply, and added for the firearms to be brought to him. The demand comes on the heels of the Bureau of Land Management pulling the plug on the roundup due to safety concerns.

“Based on information about conditions on the ground, and in consultation with law enforcement, we have made a decision to conclude the cattle gather because of our serious concern about the safety of employees and members of the public,” BLM director Neil Kornze said.

Many people in the crowd gathered in Bunkerville were demanding to know where the 500 already-gathered cattle currently are.

Feds threaten $75,000 a day fine against family that built pond on their own farm

Because of overreaching federal bureaucracy that constantly churns out conflicting and onerous regulations, it is becoming more and more difficult for landowners to use their own property in ways they see fit, even if they don't harm others or the environment.

As reported by Fox News, Wyoming welder and landowner Andy Johnson and his wife, Katie, just wanted to build a stock pond on their sprawling eight-acre farm. The two of them spent many hours digging and building, and when it was ready, they filled it with crystal-clear water, adding brook and brown trout, as well as ducks and geese.

It was also a pond from which their horses could drink while grazing, and it served, too, as a sort of private playground for their kids.

Nevada Cattle Rancher Wins 'Range War' With Feds

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters.

Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally.

...

However, today the BLM said it would not enforce a court order to remove the cattle and was pulling out of the area.

As soon as the crowds leave the Bundy Ranch the BLM might just swoop in as quick as they can to kick him off, so We The People have to be the new Minutemen, ready to move in an instant to the defense of our fellow Americans threatened by the illegitimate and unconstitutional regime in Washington DC.

The good news is that the interview with one of the BLM Rangers, who admitted feeling ashamed over what he was being ordered to do, revealed that the government's stooges have little stomach to enforce the unconstitutional "laws" decreed by DC against an armed populace. And if it works at the Bundy Ranch, it can work at the local military recruiting offices, Obamacare facilities, and tax offices! In that context, this is a victory for We The People.

"The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government." -- Thomas Jefferson

Doctor Doom & The Fiat Money Empire

Almost openly now, the long-running attempt to kick the price of gold down, and keep it down to Save the Money and stoke further frenzied and unreal price growth of equities has overreached. The fiat money empire is more threatened, today, than for decades and the train has hit the buffers. Speaking on CNBC this week, the veteran market expert Marc Faber ­ often ridiculed by business media as a Doctor Doom who always exaggerates ­ was given more respect than he normally gets. There were no you-said-it-before jibes when he said a 1987-style “pure financial” market crash is coming. Leading the way, he said, the insanely-overpriced Internet and Biotech stocks will be the first to go. Apart from what he called “cloud cuckoo” stock and asset prices, the basic upstream trigger are the antics of the US Fed, which like other central banks has upped the ante to the point where, Faber said, anybody can see the Fed is a “clueless organization”.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Please don't panic: prepare, the best you can.

Currency controls are most likely coming in this country, and I would be willing to bet money on this. So please; have no more money in your bank account than you absolutely need to pay the bills. Keep the rest of it under your own control. Buy small amounts of gold and silver, well under the radar of it being traced or surveilled. Figure out what skills you have to barter for goods and services you will need.

Because we may well be looking at Wiemar-style hyperinflation in the US in very short order, you absolutely need to be prepared when the excrement hits the ventilation system.

$1,000-a-Day Hepatitis C Miracle Drug Gets a Major Price Cut, Just Not In the U.S.

India, Egypt and Brazil have secured access to Sovaldi, the incredibly effective, but also incredibly expensive hepatitis C treatment, for one percent of its cost in America. The 12-week treatment program that runs U.S. insurance companies $84,000 per cycle, will be just $840 in those nations. Burma, Kenya, Mozambique and Iran will pay slightly more: $900 for the full treatment program, or 1.1 percent of the standard price.

TSA Ignores Audit, Expands Behavior Screening Program

Last year, the Government Accountability Office urged the TSA to pare back, if not entirely eliminate, their “behavior screening” program, saying there was no evidence it worked, and dubbing it a “waste of money.”

At the time the TSA’s leadership seemed to be taking the message to heart, with TSA chief John Pistole admitting that the program had never caught a single terrorist.

Today, it seems the whole thing went in one ear and out the other, as the latest reports out of Congress say that not only did the TSA not cut the program after GAO told them to, they actually kept expanding it.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There will be a point where TSA's hubristic, bellicose belligerence against the American people and other travelers will be stopped.

The TSA has absolutely destroyed the tourist industry here in Hawaii; people just don't want to go through a US airport because they don't want to put up with the aggravation and humiliation the TSA creates with their attitude and actions.

HANNITY: The feds don’t even own the land Bundy’s cattle have been grazing on, it’s STATE PROPERTY

This is getting ridiculous. Hannity reported on Greta tonight that the land the BLM has taken over to capture Bundy’s cattle is STATE property, not federal property, and that BLM is using the Endangered Species Act to control it. He also says there’s no eminent domain at work here and this land where Bundy’s cattle are grazing isn’t going to be used by anybody for anything:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Hannity has some of this right and some of it wrong. He is correct that the land is owned by the state, not the Federal Government. But he missed mentioning that the BLM is itself exterminating the very tortoises they cited as justification for limiting Bundy's cattle back in 1993. and Hannity is apparently unaware that one of Harry Reid's (illegal) campaign donors, Harvey Whittemore, who has plans to commercially develop that land.

The Real Story Behind The Bundy Ranch Harassment

A tortoise isn’t the reason why BLM is harassing a 67 year-old rancher. They want his land. The tortoise wasn’t of concern when Harry Reid worked BLM to literally change the boundaries of the tortoise’s habitat to accommodate the development of his top donor, Harvey Whittemore. Whittemore was convicted of illegal campaign contributions to Senator Reid. Reid’s former senior adviser is now the head of BLM. Reid is accused of using the new BLM chief as a puppet to control Nevada land (already over 84% of which is owned by the federal government) and pay back special interests. BLM has proven that they’ve a situational concern for the desert tortoise as they’ve had no problem waiving their rules concerning wind or solar power development. Clearly these developments have vastly affected a tortoise habitat more than a century-old, quasi-homesteading grazing area. If only Clive Bundy were a big Reid donor.

Wild horses targeted for roundup in Utah rangeland clash

A Utah county, angry over the destruction of federal rangeland that ranchers use to graze cattle, has started a bid to round up federally protected wild horses it blames for the problem in the latest dustup over land management in the U.S. West.

GOP Arizona lawmakers upset at Nevada range clash

Something that the BLM and the Obama regime in general need to realize is this; there are some American citizens that are FED UP with all the BS that flows from Washington and the mindless automatons of the regime that enforce these silly rules.

Even lawmakers from other states are weighing in and telling Obama and the BLM that this is a ridiculous effort on their part.

Tempers are HOT, American militias and citizens are armed and it will NOT take too much more of this for that spark to happen; the spark that ignites the 2nd American revolution!

President Obama Says the Right to Vote is Under Threat in the U.S. — Well You Got That Right, You Idiot!

President Obama is using this pedestal to criticize the Republican Party for this perceived injustice of restricting would-be Democratic voters from getting to the ballot boxes. While the Republicans probably are only on this soapbox because it might help them prevent a few votes against their party, realistically, they are only asking that laws on the books be enforced. You are supposed to be able to identify yourself to vote.

Now, here is where the Democrats rally cry comes. What a travesty of justice. Depriving poor people of their right to vote.

ARIZONA STANDS WITH THE BUNDY FAMILY

Approximately 11:00a.m. this date, the Arizona Legislature passed a
Resolution of Support to the Bundy family and against the heavy-handed
tactics of the U.S. Government, especially the Bureau of Land Management
(BLM) in the seizure of grazing land used by the Bundy’s since the late
1880’s in Clark County, Nevada. The resolution is signed by members of
the Arizona House of Representatives standing against any and all
violations of State sovereignty and violations of the U.S. Constitution
by the Federal Government. This resolution is to be hand carried this
weekend and delivered to members of the Nevada State Legislature in
support of their right to protect State and local sovereignty.

Armed militias rallyin support of Nevada rancher

With his Nevada ranch surrounded by helicopters, four-wheel-drive vehicles and an estimated 200 armed officers of the federal Bureau of Land Management, Cliven Bundy is drawing support from the governor and other prominent political leaders along with a host of protesters from other states, including fellow cattle ranchers and private armed militias.

At least three people have been arrested, and militias have made the confrontation over Bundy’s use of federal land for grazing a rally cry.

EXCLUSIVE! THE BUNDY DAUGHTER SPEAKS OUT ON GOVERNMENT TERRORISM AGAINST HER FAMILY!

My great grandpa bought the rights to the Bunkerville allotment back in 1887 around there. Then he sold them to my grandpa who then turned them over to my dad in 1972.

These men bought and paid for their rights to the range and also built waters, fences and roads to assure the survival of their cattle, all with their own money, not with tax dollars.

These rights to the land use is called preemptive rights.

Some where down the line, to keep the cows from over grazing, came the bureau of land management. They were supposed to assist the ranchers in the management of their ranges while the ranchers paid a yearly allotment which was to be use to pay the BLM wages and to help with repairs and improvements of the ranches.

My dad did pay his grazing fees for years to the BLM until they were no longer using his fees to help him and to improve.

Instead they began using these money’s against the ranchers.

FLASHBACK - Government plans to euthanize hundreds of desert tortoises after budget cuts to refuge

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Back in 1993, the BLM arbitrarily changed the grazing agreement that Cliven Bundy was paying for, limiting the number of cattle he could graze on land that the BLM had stolen from his ancestors to just 150 head, ostensibly to protect the endangered tortoise. But the BLM demanded the same grazing fees as before. Cliven refused to pay the same fees for less grazing and took the BLM to court, where the case has lingered for 20 years, until the BLM unilaterally decided to act in a court order without allowing an appeal, which has led to the current standoff. So imagine how Clivan must be feeling as we learn that the BLM is itself killing off those same tortoises due to lack of funding!

New Study Showing Glyphosate Found in Mothers' Breast Milk

“For years Monsanto has claimed that glyphosate, the key active ingredient in its Roundup-brand herbicide is ‘safe’ because the human body excretes it,” said Ronnie Cummins, national director of the OCA. “This pilot study is the first of its kind to prove that Monsanto is wrong. In fact, this preliminary study shows that glyphosate accumulates in our bodies, and mothers are now passing the toxin on to their infants via breast milk.”

Results of the pilot study, conducted by Moms Across America and Sustainable Pulse, with support from Environmental Arts & Research, were released today. While the numbers are small, they are alarming. The study revealed that the levels found in the breast milk of American women were found to be 760 to 1600 times higher than the European Drinking Water Directive allows for individual pesticides (Glyphosate is both a pesticide and herbicide), but less than the 700 ug/l maximum contaminant level (MCL) for glyphosate in the U.S.

The EPA, arguing that glyphosate is not bio-accumulative, recently raised the limits for the amount of glyphosate residue allowed on human food.

Texas militia heading to Nevada

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I do not encourage violence. However it is clear that the Federal Government intends to use violence to enforce its unconstitutional wishes against the Bundys, in order to please political cronies. If enough people show up, the government may back down rather than risk open conflict with the people they might lose before the eyes of the world. But if indeed the government creates a bloody mess at the Bundy Ranch in the hopes of teaching us uppity slaves a lesson, they will still lose, for the Federal Government will have destroyed their own legitimacy and moral authority. Again before the eyes of the world. This is a no-win situation either way and the only thing the federal Government can control is the final body count. The real danger is that we already know from Obamacare and Human-Caused Global Warming that the federal Government is institutionally incapable of admitting error or changing course. From the phone calls and emails I am receiving, it appears Americans are at the breaking point, and open conflict at the Bundy ranch could very easily spark nationwide riots that would extend beyond what the Federal Government could control.

BLM Action in Nevada is Unconstitutional, Here’s Why

It is the BLM, not Cliven Bundy, who is in violation of the law and the Constitution, specifically Article 1, Section 8, Clause 17 of the Constitution.

The clause, known as the Enclave Clause, authorizes Congress to purchase, own and control land in a state under specific and limited conditions, namely “for the erection of forts, magazines, arsenals, dockyards, and other needful buildings,” and not, as the feds now insist, to protect an endangered tortoise.

The Founders were opposed to providing a centralized federal government with unlimited authority to purchase and, as is routinely the case today, seize state and private land.

Federal government seizes $424 million in tax refunds from children to pay back old debts owed by their PARENTS

Hundreds of thousands of U.S. citizens are getting shocking letters in their mailboxes instead of tax refund checks – nastygrams informing them that the federal government has seized their money to repay debts their parents decades-old debts that they never settled.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When debt becomes hereditary, the people become slaves.

There is no legal basis for holding children responsible for debts of parents from before they were born or while they were children. Just as there is no legal basis for holding Americans responsible for the artificially created debt resulting from the creation of the federal Reserve system long before they were born and could choose whether they wanted to accept living under the very same banking system this nation fought a revolution to break free of.

Why the Standoff at the Bundy Ranch is a Very Big Deal

If you haven’t been following the unfolding drama at the Bundy Ranch about 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas you need to start now. The escalating confrontation between irate local residents and federal agents of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has the potential to take a very dangerous turn for the worse at any moment, as hundreds of militia members from states across the country are expected to descend upon the area and make a stand with 67-year-old Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As a Christian and a pacifist, I would never advocate violence.

That having been said, however, I fear deeply that the BLM is about to visit great violence on Cliven Bundy and his family, to prove that they can, and get away with such violence with impunity.

There has been a "no fly" zone imposed on this area of Nevada, and cell tower service has been cut. That means that the Feds are desperately trying to insure that no images of what is about to go down will get out to the general public.

Their objective is not to protect the desert tortoise, but to punish a defiant property owner and entrepreneur. This potentially murderous aggression is being celebrated by Progressives as a worthy effort to make dangerous radicals “feel the superior power of the Government.”

Dallas police officers, including the union that represents them, are asking citizens organized to keep watch over cops with recording devices to stop filming law enforcement because it is causing unspecified “major safety issue[s].”

In late 2012, the US Supreme Court upheld a citizen’s right to record police officers performing their official duties.

Thus, some Dallas officers have been notified by “an email,” according to CBS-DFW, that citizens are acting lawfully by filming police action.

BLM fracking racket exposed! Armed siege and cattle theft from Bundy ranch really about fracking leases

The Bureau of Land Management says its 200-man armed siege of the Cliven Bundy ranch in Nevada is all about protecting an "endangered tortoise." But a Natural News investigation has found that BLM is actually in the business of raking in millions of dollars by leasing Nevada lands to energy companies that engage in fracking operations.

This document from the Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology(1) shows significant exploratory drilling being conducted in precisely the same area where the Bundy family has been running cattle since the 1870's. The "Gold Butte" area is indicated on the lower right corner of the document (see below), and it clearly shows numerous exploratory drilling operations have been conducted there.
