(NO, this is not me ranting about JFK’s assassination, again!)

I was going to keep my distance from the whole ‘armed clown occupiers are arrested (and one killed) after a run-in with governmental armed clowns’, but this seems to be something not going away – from the blogosphere, anyway.

“The FBI sent 100 agents in 40 armored vehicles to murder one man in Oregon, but they haven’t even interviewed Hillary Clinton yet.”

So there you have it.  Maybe.

Did the federal government protect us from some right-wing extremist whack jobs, or is this yet another example of federal ‘overreach’, not unlike the executions @ Ruby Ridge and Waco?
The Internet is abuzz with this was simply suicide-by-cop, coupled with an idea to incite violence (?)
There has also been chatter regarding the ‘armed occupiers’ being treasonous, and therefore deserved prison and/or killing.  Without due process, I might add…
Then, I remembered some other ‘armed’ occupiers:Eric-Holder-Columbia-1973-yearbook-343x620

Report: Did Eric Holder Participate in‘Armed’ Occupation of Columbia ROTC Office?

The Daily Caller is reporting that the nation’s highest-ranking law enforcement official, Attorney General Eric Holder, participated in what has been described by some as an “armed” takeover of Columbia University’s Naval Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) office in 1970.

Apparently Holder was one of the leaders of the Student Afro-American Society (SAAS) that demanded the abandoned ROTC center be transformed into the “Malcom X Lounge.”
Holder described the five-day event during a 2010 commencement speech: “[Several] of us took one of our concerns — that black students needed a designated space to gather on campus — to the Dean [of Freshmen]’office. This being Columbia, we proceeded to occupy that office.”
Holder, however, recalls the event as being “peaceful.”
The Daily Caller continues:

The details of the student-led occupation, including the claim that the raiders were “armed,” come from a deleted Web page of the Black Students’ Organization (BSO) at Columbia, asuccessor group to the SAASContemporary newspaper accounts in The Columbia Daily Spectator, a student newspaper, did not mention weapons.
[…]
Though then-Dean Carl Hovde declared the occupation of the Naval ROTC office illegal and said it violated university policy, the college declined to prosecute any of the students involved.  This decision may have been made to avoid a repeat of violent Columbia campus confrontations between police and members of Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) in 1968.
The ROTC headquarters was ultimately renamed the Malcolm X lounge as the SAAS organization demanded.  It later became a hang-out spot for another future U.S. leader, Barack Obama, according to David Maraniss’ best-selling ”Barack Obama: The Story.” [Emphasis added]

In 1968– soon before Holder arrived on campus– the SAAS collaborated with the SDS to prevent a gymnasium from being built, and briefly held Dean Henry Coleman hostage.  As recently as 2010, according to the Daily Caller, the perpetrators were described as “armed with guns.”

Of course SNOPES (the ‘fact-checking’ website funded by leftists politicos) says Holder was not involved with any armed occupation.
So, which is it?
Does it depend on which side of the political spectrum rock one crawls out from under?
It’s been said one man’s freedom fighter is another’s terrorist.

Surveillance, By The Numbers

(Nick Otto/For The Washington Post)
While officers raced to a recent 911 call about a man threatening his ex-girlfriend, a police operator in headquarters consulted software that scored the suspect’s potential for violence the way a bank might run a credit report.The program scoured billions of data points, including arrest reports, property records, commercial databases, deep Web searches and the man’s social- media postings. It calculated his threat level as the highest of three color-coded scores: a bright red warning.The man had a firearm conviction and gang associations, so out of caution police called a negotiator. The suspect surrendered, and police said the intelligence helped them make the right call — it turned out he had a gun. ()
Another twist on ‘the machine’ from TV’s Person of Interest.  Not video or audio surveillance, but data-mining to determine if a subject suspect person-of-interest is a potential danger.I wonder if it finds blog posts and comments and scores them with regard to potential danger, based on a peaceful expression of concern for governmental abuses?Guess I’m worthy of a bright red warning…h/t Liberty Headlines

Much Corruption? Naw…

Government corruption has become rampant:

  • Senior SEC employees spent up to 8 hours a day surfing porn sites instead of cracking down on financial crimes
  • NSA spies pass around homemade sexual videos and pictures they’ve collected from spying on the American people

More @ Zero Hedge

There was a time many of us (well I) trusted ‘the authorities’ to generally do that which was ‘right’.  Sure, mistakes were made, but people took oaths and policies were in place, yatta…yatta…yatta.

Not so much, anymore.

“Absolute power corrupts absolutely”  –  Lord Acton

 

Two In One Day

First of all, my thoughts and prayers go out to the innocent in the San Bernardino shootings.  And also to those in Savannah, Georgia.

Now, an observation.

Most of you know I believe in the Conspiracy Theory of History.  That is, many times – but not all – other forces are at work to force political agendas in times of crisis.  Think Rahm Emanuel.  Again, not always.

tin_foil_hat_areaBut, it IS interesting that virtually every time a mass shooting occurs, The President jumps onto his tired bandwagon about pushing more gun control.  Many times before the bodies are even cold.

Or all the facts are known.

And students of conspiratorial history are familiar with governmental interference with many things. Forcing disease upon the American Indians and Blacks.  The Army giving LSD to soldiers in the 60’s.  The FBI’s COINTELPRO (black bag) program.  The NSA’s MKULTRA.

There appears to be evidence the convicted assassin of Robert Kennedy was ‘manipulated’ (chemically treated and hypnotized) into taking the actions he did.  (Evidence that he was never behind Kennedy, aside!)  D. A. Vince Bugliosi kept pushing to reopen the case, to no avail.

And President Nixon ordered ‘The Plumbers’ to beat the Secret Service to Arthur Bremer’s apartment, after he shot Governor Wallace.  Hmmm.

I used to know a clinical psychologist, socially.  I asked him about stuff I’d been reading about governmental mind control, chemical hypnosis and suggestion – the whole Manchurian Candidate meme.  Thinking he would pooh-pooh all the claims as pseudoscientific claptrap.

Instead, he shocked me with this statement, “Oh, the Soviets have been doing that since the 40’s.” (!)

And did he think we haven’t?

It’s not a large leap to believe that this ‘science’ hasn’t progressed since the 40’s, and that government forces (and corporate ones?) have been using it to push agendas.

What a better way to force through more gun control on the innocent than to have more visible mass shootings?

And if someone could control when those shootings occurred?

Of course, this is all just supposition.  I’m in no way suggesting this is actually happening.

And, it does appear there are enough goofballs out there with their own agenda (Islamic fundamental terrorism).

And some folks like to never let a crisis go to waste!

The scary-as-hell reality of an urban terrorist attack

America’s shopping malls are wide open to attack by terrorists and criminal thugs.  I’ve spoken about that on various occasions, and I’ll repeat here what I’ve warned before:

In today’s racially charged climate, with criminal flash mobs an ever-increasing problem in many cities, the average urban shopping mall now qualifies as a “stupid place” to be. (!!!)

In 2013 four Muslim fundamentalist terrorists attacked a shopping mall in Nairobi, Kenya, in a chilling foretaste of what could happen in any city in America at any time.  I wrote about it that same day.  I urge you to read the warning I gave then, and ask yourself the same questions I posed on that day.  They’re as relevant as ever they were.

Now Foreign Policy brings us an in-depth report on what happened that day in Nairobi, complete with many eye-witness and participant accounts.  It’s the next best thing to a security briefing on what you might confront any day now in an American shopping center.  I have no faith whatsoever that our police and security forces could stop such a thing from at least getting started.  I hope and trust they’d do rather better at shutting it down before it got out of hand:  but if the attacking party is larger, or better-armed, or their assault is timed to coincide with mass street protests that draw too many cops away from the danger zone . . . who knows?

We already know that fundamentalist Islamic terrorists and/or their sympathizers are trying to infiltrate the United States.  Some claim they’ve already done so.  None of us know the facts . . . but I guaran-damn-tee you, they want to.  Nairobi was a foreshadowing of what they’d like to do to the Great Satan, America itself.  Go read the Foreign Policy article in full, and ask yourself:  if something like that goes down tomorrow, in my town, and I’m there, what am I going to do about it?  Am I prepared to deal with it?  If not . . . why not?

DOOM And DOOM-ER!

doomThe Internet is replete with tales of doom and gloom.

Two of the more current (having appeared almost simultaneously) are (first)…

BERNIE SANDERS BECOMES THE NEXT PRESIDENT

Why?  Because the expected Democratic front runner, Hillary Clinton is mired in all her illegal, dishonest and unethical mess – to the point where even the main-stream media couldn’t ignore it.  So Bernie, who seems to be running strong, and is an avowed Socialist – became the candidate.

And Donald Trump, the RINO populist, who says what ‘the people’ want to hear (at least some people) and cannot be bought (as he is running on his own cash) scares the bejezus out of the Republican establishment.  As they are not about to make him their candidate (because they cannot control him) he forms a third party.  This splits the Republican base, and Bernie The Socialist wins!

Result?  More editing and erosion of the Constitution, and increase in governmental power.  And out-of-control spending!

Quelle surprise.

(second)

WORLD FINANCIAL COLLAPSE

The People’s Republic of China (aka the PRC or ‘Red’ China), the communist behemoth to the East, is tanking financially.  And our own system (Wall Street and The Fed) are failing as well.  (the DJA dropped 1100 points in one day), AND, China holds our note (they are propping US up!)  Translation – both East and West are preparing for a large financial hit.  And failing in the preparation.  International terrorism is rampant.  And let’s not mention Europe and the tinder box in the Middle East (nuclear Iran – “I told you not to mention that!”))…

Quelle surprise TWO.

Expectations are (again, per the Internet-feeding your fears since 1994) that with a second, incompetent Socialist President, and a rapidly failing financial system, WORLDWIDE, the international banking system and what’s left of world stability will fail.

No access to your bank accounts, IRAs, profit-sharing funds, stocks, pensions, gold, jewels.  You will be asked to bring in any valuables to the nearest federal collection station for ‘processing of your contribution’.  Social Security, Medicare and disability payments will STOP.

And anarchy will ensue.

Need an Alka-Seltzer, yet?

Or a whiskey?

Me?  I don’t buy into it.  At least not yet.

I think the demise of the Republic will occur much more slowly and painfully, as it has been since, oh, 1930…

False Flags

EPA, FBI, DOJ, FDA, CDC, ATF: Nearly every government agency routinely plots and carries out false flag operations to justify its own existence

Via comment by Anonymous on Don’t Be Fooled by the Political Game: The Illusio…

Yesterday I posted an article asking for American citizens to send me water samples from the Animas River that the EPA has now heavily contaminated with toxic heavy metals. I want to test the water in my elemental analysis laboratory to expose the EPA’s pollution.The EPA used to prevent corporations from polluting the rivers, but now the EPA has become the polluter, the liar and the cover-up cartel. In that story, I pointed out the total absurdity of our sickening, corrupt government, where private citizens now have to conduct the science to expose the pollution of the EPA.That got me thinking… hey, wait a minute. Almost EVERY federal government agency is now functioning as a rogue entity. Nearly all of them routinely carry out false flag events in order to justify their own existence (and increase their budgets). In a very real way, U.S. government agencies have become mafia-style cartels carrying out domestic terrorism across America in order to justify their own existence.

Straws.  Camels backs.  Boiled frogs.  I truly don’t want to believe the above, because I’ve seen evidence of this piece-by-piece for years, and wrote it off to bureaucracies self-perpetuating.
I was (am) in denial.
THIS is why we have ever increasing budgets routinely asked-for and given for most government agencies – some of which have military hardware and budgets rivaling third-word countries!  (Including civilian police!)
And, of course, we have the intelligence agencies.  Secret budgets, money laundering, the E & I Bank, universal unwarranted surveillance and collusion with ‘continuing criminal enterprises’…
Come to think of it, some State and local law enforcement entities are guilty of collusion, as well.  Why else would the Mob (and it’s various permutations) be allowed to operate, largely unrestricted?  Criminal gangs?  Child porn and white slavery rings?
Sure, every now and there is some ‘big’ bust – a large smuggling tunnel with tons of weed, a drug house, some gang member holding an ‘arsenal’ (10 or 12 guns) is busted, to show the public they are holding up the public trust.
But the ring leaders and their politically-connected lackeys are rarely if ever prosecuted, or even mentioned.
Why is that?
And now (from above) …
The EPA used to prevent corporations from polluting the rivers, but now the EPA has become the polluter, the liar and the cover-up cartel.

The Boy Who Cried Wolf

We all remember that Aesop Fable.

Fast-forward to today, wherein people are lampooned for worrying about the Jade Helm military exercise.

I wonder why they came to the conclusion there was something malicious about it?

Could it be governmental actions have been less-than-benign now for over 40 years?

  • unwarranted airport searches
  • unwarranted sobriety checkpoints
  • unwarranted vehicle searches for contraband at the borders
  • unwarranted personal questioning with regard to citizenship or legal residence
  • local police abuse of constitutional rights
  • federal agency abuse of constitutional rights
  • intelligence agencies spying on American citizens’ cellular telephones, Internet communications, snail mail, conversations and all manner of communication
  • intelligence secret ‘courts’ forcing citizens into black ‘prisons’ for interrogation without benefit of counsel or constitutional protections
  • military-sanctioned assassinations via drone strikes of U.S. Citizens overseas
  • The U.S. Attorney General not ruling out similar actions on U.S. soil

Ad infinitum, ad nauseum

I believe in the Constitutional Republic of The United States of America.  Whatever we have been perverted into is not the same nation, however.

It is no wonder that people reflexively want to believe the worst about their government.  FEMA concentration camps, contrail poisoning, and Jade Helm are just the tip of the conspiracy theory iceberg.

We need to support a presidential candidate in this next election who proposes dialing back the abuses of the past 40 years.

Of course, if we truly believe in conspiracies, they will be discredited or assassinated before that happens.

Hysterical Hoplophobia

CITY HEIGHTS – An accidental shooting in City Heights prompted officials to lockdown a nearby elementary school Tuesday. 

The victim in his 20s was hanging out with friends and “playing with a gun” at Jeremy Henwood Memorial Park — a park named after an SDPD officer gunned down in the line of duty in 2011 — when the weapon discharged and wounded his ankle around 1:45 p.m. 

At 1:50 p.m., Rosa Parks Elementary School was placed on lockdown for precautionary measures due to the gunfire. 

Paramedics took the unidentified victim to Scripps Mercy Hospital in Hillcrest to treat the non-life-threatening leg injury, according to SDPD spokesman Matt Tortorella. 

It was unclear what type of charge the shooter might face over the accident, though a count of negligent handling of a firearm was among the likely possibilities, Tortorella said.  (San Diego 6 News)

Imagery of drooling Pavlovian canines filled my brain.

What if the school were some appropriate distance or so away from a field, and hunters were legally bird hunting?  (or some other comparison?)

BANG…lockdown, all clear…BANG…lockdown, all clear.

What MAROONS!

Of course, this was in CALIFORNIA!

Government Conspiracies?

tin_foil_hat_areaMost of you know, I sometimes ascribe to the Conspiracy Theory of History.

Essentially, this means if it walks like a duck, and talks like a duck, it’s a f****** duck!

This doesn’t mean everything touted on the Internet about government secrecy, plots or actions is necessarily true, however.

YES, they are listening to us, photographing us, and reading our email.  And monitoring our Internet activity.

NO, I don’t think contrails are a massive plot to poison us. (just an example – PLEASE don’t respond with links!)

HOWEVER, as there are elements within the federal executive who have a negative agenda regarding the Second Amendment, firearms possession and ownership…

We now have THIS (from Rico and Theo Spark):

There have been open solicitations for “crisis actors” to work for DHS, et al. I have seen them, and have ‘trained with’ role players in the past.
– It’s not a ‘new’ idea to simulate situations and make training exercises more “realistic” by using such people.
– It makes “sense” right?
Leave it to government to FUBAR things. The folks who have taken Murphy’s Law to heart and made it a guidepost appear to have done it again.
– Using the same ‘crying woman’ in three separate staged events? Yeah, that’s typical government. The gal photographed here really gets around, wouldn’t you say?
That noted hoaxter, Orson Welles, would NOT be impressed by these clowns for ruining what otherwise would have been a pretty good hoax.
“Crisis Actors”?
Seriously?
Either there just happens to be women who appear very similar in multiple locations, or, once again, our tax dollars are at work!
Pushing an agenda.
Do we have conformation independent of the purveyors of this material, or is this just three women who coincidentally resemble each other?  And, do we have information showing the casting call from the Department of Homeland Security for “crisis actors”?
Or is this just blowing smoke, again?  Another contrail?

"Round up the usual suspects."

In Loving Memory…
