Legalized Gov’t Theft of YOUR Property: “Prosecutor Lives in Seized House Rent-Free for Years”

They bring guns, tanks and the authority of shiny government badges – and they want what's yours.

Under civil asset forfeiture, we are witnessing systematic abuse by the watchers at its richest and most fabulous: politicians, local and regional officials, judges, cops, prosecutors – everyone is invited to party with stolen cars, luxurious houses, spending cash, flashy jewelry and other valuable assets seized from people who "might" be criminals but aren't necessarily charged or convicted.

13-minute video: What do you care enough about to create in our/your future, citizen?

*hyperlinks/video live at source*

hat tips: ZenGardener and Mark Passio

“What we care about on a day-to-day basis acts as the driving force of our thoughts and actions. Therefore, Care can be seen as the ultimate Generator of the quality of our experience.” - Mark Passio

What do you care enough about to think, say, and do as a citizen?

Let’s consider arguably the single most important example for your care as a citizen: stopping unlawful Wars of Aggression in order to have literal world peace.

Do you care enough about your family and community members, who in the century we were all born, sacrificed through two world wars?

The legal victory our families sacrificed to win are two treaties that make current US, UK, Israel wars unlawful Wars of Aggression, the most worst crime a nation can commit. We also know that our own government agencies admit all reasons for war were known to be lies as they were told.

AUDIO INTERVIEW: Who’s Afraid of Political Correctness? Not This Guy

Wicomico County, Maryland Sheriff Michael A. Lewis has grabbed the national stage recently with his no-nonsense, politically-incorrect comments on the Baltimore riots.

Now, Dave Gahary had a chance to sit down with the outspoken sheriff, a breath of fresh air in these stifling, politically-correct times.

Sheriff Lewis discusses his background, the riots in his state in which he was present for at the governor’s request, President Barack Hussein Obama’s war on this country’s history, culture and traditions, as well as his pro-criminal and anti-law enforcement position, his decision to run for higher office, as well as other topics, in this refreshing interview (28:39).

The Crashing Matrix and Last Ditch Trans-Everything Agenda

The outdated matrix programming by the engineers of deceit can’t keep up. The vibrational changes are exceeding their capabilities. The imitators of creation can’t maintain a current operating system any longer in the face of this massive Universal shift we’re undergoing.

And it’s driving them nuts.

Just look at the desperation we’re witnessing. Crude military and police state maneuvers are only one aspect, of course working in concert with dastardly economic manipulations and an outlandish propaganda barrage. The biggest clue is seeing the previously incremental and now hyperbolic use of technocratic programs from mass surveillance and data gathering to the advent of cyber warfare and artificial intelligence, while crazed maniacs at CERN try to crack into other dimensions.

The magnitude and desperation of their insane agenda has become completely transparent to just about anyone.

Peter Beinart’s Fantasy – Raimondo

Does Beinart really believe the media complex that gives the War Party a guaranteed platform suffers from amnesia? I hardly think so.

Peter Beinart asks some pretty good questions: he wants to know why the same crowd that lied us into war in Iraq isn’t completely discredited when it comes to their opposition to the recently concluded deal with Iran. No, he doesn’t put it quite that way, in part because, by his own admission, he was one of the most enthusiastic cheerleaders for what he now describes as “one of the most important, and damaging, episodes in the history of U.S. foreign policy.” He frames his question this way:

“I have a fantasy. It’s that every politician and pundit who goes on TV to discuss the Iran deal is asked this question first: ‘Did you support the Iraq War, and how has that experience informed your position?’”

Beinart is right to regard this as a fantasy, because it will never happen. Yet he fails to ask why that is.

The War on Conspiracy Realists Continues

British government under Cameron's watch has been an active and willing partner in the Machiavellian strategy of divide and rule in the Middle East spearheaded by the US and Israel.

Obama picked up where Bush left off, flooding Syrian and Libyan insurgent groups with untold largesse and arms, using the corrupted Arab Gulf kingdoms as conduits for weapons transfers for the sake of plausible deniability.

ISIS themselves have mostly eschewed hostility towards Israel, posting an official statement on social media in July 2014 saying that they’re more interested in fighting “Muslim infidels” than the Zionist state.[6]

Israeli officials have expressed similar sentiments, with Israel’s former envoy to the US,Michael Oren, stating in a September 2013 interview that Tel Aviv “prefers” ISIS and al-Qaeda over the “bad guys backed by Iran,” namely Syria’s Assad and Hezbollah.

It’s also raised questions over a 23-year-old federal policy that leaves service members unable to defend themselves on Pentagon property.

Cameron is Engineering a “Color Revolution” in Great Britain

Should it be surprising then that anti-government sentiment in England has been on the rise in the recent period and that calls for a “color revolution” in this country are gaining momentum? There we have it! Plans for such “revolutions,” carefully engineered by Cameron’s assistants, could prove to be useful, despite that they were designed for other countries.

FLASHBACK: Obama Campaign Is Modeled On Alinsky

Obama is not like other candidates, and part of this training is learning to mimic the methods he used before he was an elected official — back when he was a community organizer in Chicago following the textbook of legendary agitator Saul Alinsky.

Saul Alinsky wanted results

Rivals of Obama know that while he may at times appear to channel Martin Luther King Jr., his methods sometimes give evidence of his allegiance to Alinsky, who shunned starry-eyed idealists and recommended purging do-gooders from organizations. Alinsky wanted results. And his methods often forced the hands of elected officials.

13 Rules For Radicals – Alinsky’s Guide For Activists

The end is what you want and the means is how you get it
— In war the end justifies almost any means
— Any effective means is automatically judged by the opposition to be unethical
Tactics, like life, require that you move with the action
— Tactics means doing what you can with what you have
— Tactics is the art of how to take and how to give
For an elementary illustration of tactics, take parts of your face as the point of reference; your eyes, your ears, and your nose.

Macedonia’s political leaders have reached agreement on an interim government and an independent investigation into allegations of illegal wiretapping, electoral fraud and state-backed corruption in the former Yugoslav republic.Political leaders said the deal brought to an end a poisonous political dispute in the EU candidate country, which had been gripped by mass demonstrations and deadly clashes that echoed the country’s 2001 violent inter-ethnic conflict. Johannes Hahn, the EU enlargement commissioner who mediated the talks, told local reporters on Wednesday that the country’s leaders had brought Macedonia closer to its ambition of EU membership by reaching a deal.

'Dark Cloud' of ALEC Converges at Annual Corporate-Political Lovefest

Greece’s Parliament Cannot Override the NO Vote. The Agreement with the Creditors is Illegal

While the result of a referendum is not always legally binding, it nonetheless provides an explicit political mandate to the government which has to be followed. A referendum cannot be based on an a priori deception. The results cannot be ignored in a democracy.

The referendum was held while the Tsipras government had already decided to cave in to the creditors.

Neither the Parliament nor the government can rescind the VOTE of the Greek people on the July 5 2015.

Under a democracy, the government has a responsibility to implement the NO vote in the Referendum, which was sponsored by the Syriza government in the first place.

If it is not willing to respond to the demands of the Greek people it must resign.

FLASHBACK:Confederate Soldiers are American Veterans by Act of Congress

My Great-Great Gramps was the standard bearer for the 6th Virginia Infantry Northern Army of Virginia CSA.He went in a Private and came out a Private.Enlisted in Norfolk Virginia and mustered out at Appomattox Courthouse after one last fight with Armstrong Custer's Cavalry Division. Custer blocked General Lee from going to surrender to Grant and THE General called up the 6th Virginia who cut a hole through Custer's division so that Lee could surrender to U.S. Grant as per their agreement. A good chunk of the 6th went home without formally surrendering including great great gramps. He kept his pistol which I got to hold when I was a little kid. It is now in a Civil War museum back east.
I'm as proud of him as I am my old man who served in the Marine Corps and was also later in the USAF. They are both American vets and they both deserve recognition!

Confederate History-Dispelling The Myths

History books, the media, the school systems, etc abound in falsehoods and inaccuracies of Confederate and Southern history. This fact sheet will help to clarify and dispell some of these rampant inaccuracies.

MYTH - The War of 1861 - 1865 was fought over slavery.

FACT - Terribly untrue. The North fought the war over money. Plain and simple. When the South started Secession, Lincoln was asked, "Why not let the South go in peace?" To which he replied, "I can't let them go. Who would pay for the government?" Sensing total financial ruin for the North, Lincoln waged war on the South. The South fought the War to repel Northern aggression and invasion.

Citizens Rally to Defend Flag

STAFFORD, Virginia—While South Carolina Governor Nimrata Nikki Randhawa Haley and a bevy of vote-hungry white politicians may have rolled over to the forces of political correctness and agreed that the Confederate battle flag should come down across the nation, not all Southerners are ready to give up the fight for this important symbol of white Christian America. On Sunday, July 12, about 100 enthusiastic citizens—white and black alike—showed up in front of the Stafford County, Virginia courthouse at a Confederate flag rally, filling the grounds with a sea of red and blue flags with the St. Andrew’s Cross, proving that there are people willing to resist federal tyranny and thought control. (Ironically, the courthouse sits on Jefferson Davis Highway, one of the roads slated for a name change by radical anti-Southern activists.)

Anti-austerity protest in Athens as MPs vote for second bailout reform package (PHOTOS, VIDEO)

Several thousand anti-austerity protesters staged a rally in Syntagma Square in central Athens as the MPs in the nearby parliament building were voting on a second package of reforms required to secure a third international bailout from EU-IMF creditors.

Police presence was heavy in the area after last week’s much larger, 12,000-strong protest concluded with clashes, with police using tear gas against Molotov cocktail-throwing youths.

The rally on Wednesday was peaceful for the most part, with the only isolated incidents of violence reported as protesters were leaving the square.

Journalists at Syntagma reported that someone detonated a petrol bomb near the police ranks, but order was quickly restored in the Greek capital.

The Fine or the Crude Art of Window Dressing – Hypocrisy at its Best

It is simply tit for tat and it is part of the window dressing routine that both sides have to engage in for a long while.

In the meantime, again we are being told by the Administration officials and the mass media that Iran continues to be the world’s biggest supporter of terrorism and is busy destabilizing the region by backing the Assad regime in Syria, the Shi’a militia in Iraq, and the Houthis in Yemen.

An exchange between US Ambassador to the UN and her Iranian counterpart is another example of the post-nuclear-agreement Cold War between the United States and the Islamic Republic:

The Iranian administration, reading and hearing the foregoing rhetoric on a daily basis, is certainly not going to take all the allegations and insults without reacting in kind. Both sides must remain actively engaged in window dressing and face saving charade for some time.

The general public is aware that both nations are facing off on the political, economic, and informational fronts. However, they also confront each other in yet another area which is only followed by a narrow circle of experts, though it bears directly on the most important security issues facing the whole planet.

The reference is, of course, to major arms control treaties. These took many years and tremendous efforts to negotiate, and yet they now dissolve one after another.

Abe works for increased domestic surveillance similar to the US and UK.
Japan, as all former imperialist nations, creates what they use for money as debt. These mechanics are like adding negative numbers forever, and cause increasing, unpayable, tragic-comic total debt.
Despite Japan’s debt, they are a leading buyer of US debt with $1.2 trillion.

In fact, according to the most recent data, not only did the sky not fall, murder rates and violent crime over the same period have plunged dramatically — demolishing the claims of gun-control proponents, while bolstering the pragmatic case for even broader proliferation of public firearms ownership.

British Royal Nazi Salute – a Sign of the Times

The British royal family is up in arms – excuse the pun – over old video footage that shows the young Queen Elizabeth giving a Heil Hitler salute. A photograph published on its front page by British tabloid newspaper The Sun has caused a storm of controversy, with the British monarchy denouncing it as an invasion of privacy. But the real significance is that the image shows how Western so-called democracies were – and still are – so close to embracing fascism.

There was a consensus among Britain’s ruling class during the 1930s that quietly but enthusiastically endorsed Hitler and fascism as a bulwark against democracy and socialism in particular.

The Nuclear Agreement; Fantasies vs Facts

Iranians are celebrating the prospects of a long awaited relief from the economic pain that the sanctions had imposed upon the nation. While they blame the United States government for what they believe to have been an unjustified and unfair treatment, they are divided as to what the true motivating factors could have been behind America’s animosity toward Iran.

The majority opinion points to America’s insatiable appetite for a hegemonic control over the region and its energy resources. A much smaller segment of the population comprising of the more educated elites, believe that Israel and its Zionist supporters in the United States have been at the helm and steering America’s foreign policy in the Middle East toward Israel’s preferences, even at the expense of America’s own strategic interests.

Syriza Leader Calls for Pan-European Anti-Austerity Movement

Marina Prentoulis spoke with teleSUR and said support for the Syriza-led government is more important than ever. Marina Prentoulis, spokesperson for Syriza in the U.K., told teleSUR in an exclusive interview Thursday that what is needed is a “pan-European movement” capable of confronting the power of European capital and the neoliberal agenda of European leaders. The Greek parliament voted Thursday in favor of reform measures required by a deal reached between the government of Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and Greece's creditors. Prentoulis argued the Greek government was under extraordinary pressure and that alone there was little it could do to resist the demands of European leaders.

Iran’s Long-Game Diplomatic Strategy

Iran has sought negotiations with the U.S. for two decades, but both Democratic and Republican administrations favored hostility demanded by Israel and Saudi Arabia.

Now that Iran nuclear deal is completed, the attention of Western news media and political commentators is predictably focused overwhelmingly on the opposition to the agreement within the U.S. Congress and from Israel and the Saudi-led Sunni Arab coalition.

That media lens misses the real significance of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, which is that Iran succeeded in negotiating an agreement with the United States that upheld its national right to a nuclear program despite the obvious vast disparity in power between the two states. That power disparity between the global hegemon and a militarily weak but politically influential regional “middle power” has shaped not just the negotiating strategies of the two sides during the negotiations but, more importantly, how they came about in the first place.

Greece: PM Tsipras Banishing Ministers Opposing Sellout to Creditors, Syriza Sharply Divided

Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis resigned after being pushed out – replaced by Euclid Tsakalotos.

After leaving, he said he’s no longer under “incredible pressure to negotiate for a position I find difficult to defend…”

He cited the “complete lack of any democratic scruples (displayed by) the supposed defenders of Europe’s democracy. (V)ery powerful figures look you in the eye and say ‘(y)ou’re right in what you’re saying, but we’re going to crunch you anyway.”

Paying dominant bankers and large creditors like Germany alone matters – no matter the pain and suffering inflicted on millions of Greeks helpless against the war on their well-being.

Make no mistake. What’s happening in Greece signifies what’s ongoing throughout Europe, America, Canada, and other countries, heading for getting much worse – ending social justice to enrich monied interests more than ever, and at the same time, destroy what remains of democratic rights. Financial tyranny rules!

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Tsipras ran on a platform opposed to austerity, backed up by the recent referendum, sold out his party and his people to the money-junkies and is now executing a Stalinist purge against members of his own party still supporting those principles on which Tsipras campaigned!

This is why no politician can be trusted, ever, other than to do what they are paid to do by their masters in the banks.

During the French Revolution, the bankers went to the Guillotine long before King Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette.

That was not merely by chance!

Greek riots: Petrol bombs thrown in Athens as Greece votes through austerity reforms - live video stream

The bill fuelled anger in the governing Syriza party and led to a revolt by its members against the prime minister Alexis Tsipras, who has insisted the deal was the best he could do to prevent Greece from catastrophically crashing out of Europe's joint currency.

The vote came after an anti-austerity demonstration by about 12,000 protesters outside parliament degenerated into violence as the debate was getting under way on Wednesday night.

Riot police battled youths who hurled petrol bombs for about an hour before the clashes died down.

Demonstrations are continuing today as Greece seeks urgent relief from European lenders.

Sweet Cakes by Melissa raises record amount of cash on crowdfunding site

Supporters of the Oregon bakery Sweet Cakes by Melissa are putting their money where their mouth is.

A crowdfunding campaign for the embattled business has eclipsed $350,000 in little more than two months – a record amount on the Continue to Give site, The Washington Times reports.Jesse Wellhoefer, founder of Continue to Give, said the Sweet Cakes effort has raised more than any previous campaign on behalf of individuals in the three-year-old crowdfunding website's history, the Times said.

Coupled with $109,000 raised through GoFundMe and an undisclosed amount raised through Samaritan's Purse, online donors have contributed upwards of $450,000 to help bakery owners Aaron and Melissa Klein in their legal battle with a state agency that found they discriminated against a lesbian couple when they refused to make them a wedding cake.

The World Rebukes Netanyahu

In a rare rebuke to his bullying, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu failed to stop the United States and five other world powers from reaching an agreement to constrain but not eliminate Iran’s nuclear program. Yet, Netanyahu still is dominating how the U.S. public and congressional debate is being framed, with Iran accused of regional “aggression” in four countries.

There is little truth and much exaggeration to Netanyahu’s depiction of what is going on in the Middle East. Yet, the U.S. mainstream media mindlessly reprises Netanyahu’s falsehoods...

Netanyahu’s reference to “Iran’s aggression,” which is now becoming a conventional-wisdom talking point in Official Washington, was curious since Iran has not invaded another country for centuries. In 1980, Saddam Hussein’s Iraq – at the urging of Saudi Arabia – invaded Iran. But Iran has not invaded any of the four countries that Netanyahu cited.

US/Israeli/Saudi ‘Behavior’ Problems

There is a madness in how the mainstream U.S. media presents the world to the American people, a delusional perspective that arguably creates an existential threat to humanity’s survival. We have seen this pattern in the biased depiction of the Ukraine crisis and now in how Official Washington is framing the debate over the Iranian nuclear agreement.

In this American land of make-believe, Iran is assailed as the chief instigator of instability in the Middle East. Yet, any sane and informed person would dispute that assessment, noting the far greater contributions made by Israel, Saudi Arabia and, indeed, the United States.

The larger issue for the American people is what to do with this insane political-media system that dominates Official Washington. Either these powers-that-be are detached from reality or they are deceitful propagandists who think they can manipulate us with lies and distortions.

A Review of GAZA WRITES BACK — Gary Corseri

I have sometimes thought that if wars could be shown in slow-motion, we could put an end to this barbarism that gives the lie to all claims of “civilization” and “humanity.”

GAZA WRITES BACK is one of those very rare books that depicts war in slow motion.

The 23 stories here, written by 15 young authors (from late teens to early 30s, all but three female) were compiled to commemorate the 5-year anniversary of “Operation Cast Lead”—the name Israel gave to its 2008-2009 campaign to once more (but not finally) “mow the lawn” in Occupied Palestine—mostly, in this case, in Gaza.

It is a book that vivifies and personalizes the horrors, but also adumbrates the gnawing losses, the indelible memories.

The union for local government employees, Poe-Ota, also called for a 24-hour strike on Wednesday, the AFP reported. Two other demonstrations against austerity and the “euro” are planned for Monday night, one organized via social networks, the other by Antarsya, an anti-euro party that didn’t make it into Parliament.

Greece goes on strike: Civil service workers announce 24-hour walkout after government gives in to creditors... as summit insider reveals leaders' furious rows in tense talks

Greek civil service workers have announced a 24-hour strike in the wake of today's bailout deal amid insider claims that Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras was 'crucified' during marathon overnight talks.

The union, Adedy, wants workers to protest the terms of the agreement Tsipras negotiated with Greece's creditors when their country's parliament votes on the measures needed to receive a crucial third bailout on Wednesday.

While striking a deal was considered vital to securing Greece's future within the euro and preventing the country's economy collapsing, Tsipras agreed to rush key measures on tax hikes, pension reforms, and a debt repayment fund through parliament.

An eurozone official was quoted by the Financial Times as saying: 'They crucified Tsipras in there. Crucified.'

Someone Pull The Plug Or This Will End In War

Yes, it’s still entirely possible that Tsipras submitted this last set of proposals knowing full well they won’t be accepted. But he’s already gone way too far in his concessions. This is an exercise in futility.

It’s time to acknowledge this is a road to nowhere. From where I’m sitting, Yanis Varoufakis has been the sole sane voice in this whole 5 month long B-movie. I think Yanis also conceded that it was no use trying to negotiate anything with the troika, and that that’s to a large extent why he left.

Yanis will be badly, badly needed for Greece going forward. They need someone to figure out where to go from here.

Just like Europe needs someone to figure out how to deconstruct Brussels without the use of heavy explosives. Because there are just two options here: either the EU will -more or less- peacefully fall apart, or it will violently blow apart.

As Thomas DiLorenzo and a number of non-court historians have conclusively established, Lincoln did not invade the Confederacy in order to free the slaves. The Emancipation Proclamation did not occur until 1863 when opposition in the North to the war was rising despite Lincoln’s police state measures to silence opponents and newspapers. The Emancipation Proclamation was a war measure issued under Lincoln’s war powers. The proclamation provided for the emancipated slaves to be enrolled in the Union army replenishing its losses. It was also hoped that the proclamation would spread slave revolts in the South while southern white men were away at war and draw soldiers away from the fronts in order to protect their women and children. The intent was to hasten the defeat of the South before political opposition to Lincoln in the North grew stronger.

Obama Talks Escalation, But Officials Say ISIS War Strategy Unchanged

In his latest protracted speech about the ISIS war, President Obama insisted that the war is continuing to go well, citing thousands of ISIS fighters killed, and talked up escalating airstrikes against ISIS in Raqqa, insisting that the recent attacks “proved” ISIS would eventually be destroyed.

That “eventually” could be a long time indeed, as Obama described the conflict as a “generational struggle” that would be one at some unspecified point in the future. In the meantime, it’s all airstrikes, and bragging about body counts.

Pentagon officials, however, say that the basic ISIS war strategy are unchanged, beyond an increase in the number of airstrikes in recent days. Officials continue to maintain that, despite mounting losses on the ground, the existing strategy is the right one.

Message to the people of Greece - From The UBUNTU Party

This is your moment to become a free sovereign nation of abundance on every level of human endeavor. We urge the people of Greece to use this opportunity to finally escape the enslavement of the global banking elite and start creating everything you need for yourselves, instead of creating financial wealth for the corporations and banks that own your country. Greece belongs to its people - not to the central bank or the EU Bank or the IMF or the World Bank. The people do everything - the money does nothing - but enslave the people.

Whatever you do, do not fall for the lies, bullying, blackmailing and threats of the banking elite. They have nothing except fancy buildings - you have the people and the will to become a shining light of resistance against the elite who are nothing more than an organized crime syndicate that has taken our countries hostage through their privately owned banks.

Foreclosure Mill Attorney J. Will Eidson Runs From Cameras During Inspection of Deutsche Bank Original Note.

8 July update from Ms. Erickson: The blank unendorsed note is what Valerie states proves is now a securities fraud instrument good or fake. The prospectus of the trust states it has to be endorsed into the trust. It says to send it in blank and then deposit it into the trust along with the assignment, that never happened and stayed on county records in Long Beach name until Rebecca Dietrich, a Chase employee signed by power of attorney for DBNTC seven years after the trust closed.

I have long wondered about this because a Note can't be in two places at once, think about it. I know there is some Decisional law on this so I'll start looking into it. I think Erbobo v. Wells Fargo touches on this:

No, sweet no

The astounding NO vote that swept every part of Greece will take time to digest and understand and its meaning also depends on how the Europeans respond. But here are some immediate reactions.

The scale of the majority surprised everyone I have spoken to here in Athens as it bust the polls. Its definite, unarguable nature is a relief. This was no close-run majority that the other side could claim is illegitimate. Nor was it a mere party vote as many more supported NO than have backed Syriza.

From 'No' to 'Yes': Rejection of Austerity Just Beginning of European Battle

Even with a historic political victory in his pocket after seeing his nation vote overwhelmingly against the imposition of further austerity in exchange for a new loan package from foreign creditors on Sunday, Yanis Varoufakis, the outspoken finance minister of Greece's Syriza-led government, announced his resignation on Monday morning.

In a statement posted to his personal blog, Varoufakis said he "shall wear the creditors' loathing with pride" after it was made clear to him that his "absence" from future talks was urged by negotiating members of the so-called Troika—the European Commission, European Central Bank, and International Monetary Fund.
