Civil War buffs have long speculated about how different the war might have been if only the Confederacy had won formal recognition from Britain. But few recognize how close that came to happening — and how much pro-Southern sympathy in Britain was built on a lie…
Early British support for the South was further buttressed by something as mundane as a protective tariff — the Morrill Tariff — approved by Congress on March 2, 1861. This new tariff, passed to protect American infant industries, also unwittingly gave rise to a troublesome myth of mounting trans-Atlantic proportions.
Modern Music = Emotional Engineering

musicalbars.jpgWAKE UP PEOPLE! Modern music
was engineered to rot your mind
and pervert your morals -
[Editor's Note: I am not a musician and post this for discussion purposes.]
Quite frankly, I find discussions like the one of Heavy Metal, below the usual intelligence quotient of your readers. In the first place, Heavy Metal falls into the same category as ALL “music” created since about 1900 – it is not for entertainment but for complex emotional engineering.
Up until the early part of the last century, music was for both entertainment and for cultural expression, something that built and strengthened society on a much deeper level than mere amusement.
First Flight in America, 1757

On September 13th 1757, John Childs completed the first flight in America. Tethered to a rope, and attached to a feathered glider, he flew about 700 feet from the steeple of the Old North Church to the ground. He had placed advertisements in the Boston Gazette preceding the event, and many spectators attended. Brandishing pistols on his third flight, and with local business completely disrupted in the area, the town leaders barred him from any more sorties…
Taxation is Robbery, Part 1 “It is not the law which in the first instance defines robbery, it is an ethical principle, and this the law may violate but not supersede”- Frank Chodorov – Mises Daily
The Encyclopaedia Britannica defines taxation as “that part of the revenues of a state which is obtained by the compulsory dues and charges upon its subjects.” That is about as concise and accurate as a definition can be; it leaves no room for argument as to what taxation is. In that statement of fact the word “compulsory” looms large, simply because of its ethical content. The quick reaction is to question the “right” of the State to this use of power. What sanction, in morals, does the State adduce for the taking of property? Is its exercise of sovereignty sufficient unto itself?
On this question of morality there are two positions, and never the twain will meet. Those who hold that political institutions stem from “the nature of man,” thus enjoying vicarious divinity, or those who pronounce the State the keystone of social integrations, can find no quarrel with taxation per se; the State’s taking of property is justified by its being or its beneficial office. On the other hand, those who hold to the primacy of the individual, whose very existence is his claim to inalienable rights, lean to the position that in the compulsory collection of dues and charges the State is merely exercising power, without regard to morals.
The present inquiry into taxation begins with the second of these positions. It is as biased as would be an inquiry starting with the similarly unprovable proposition that the State is either a natural or a socially necessary institution.
Complete objectivity is precluded when an ethical postulate is the major premise of an argument and a discussion of the nature of taxation cannot exclude values.
If we assume that the individual has an indisputable right to life, we must concede that he has a similar right to the enjoyment of the products of his labor. This we call a property right. The absolute right to property follows from the original right to life because one without the other is meaningless; the means to life must be identified with life itself. If the State has a prior right to the products of one’s labor, his right to existence is qualified.

US Sheriffs: Preservers of the Last Vestiges of Our Separation of Powers
This essay offers the second part of the history of the American sheriff. The first essay contained a history of the original sheriffs—England’s shire reeves— “the oldest appointment of the English crown.” America’s own sheriffs are a continuation of Britain’s, after which the British variety lost almost all of its power as the US type blossomed.
Now that the federal government has announced ambitions to limit gun rights, amongst many other new powers, a constitution-oriented group of sheriffs—the Oath Keepers—has decided to nullify these laws instead of applying them. It is quite possible that these Rogue Sheriffs represent the last vestiges of federalism and separation of powers meant to protect the citizens from an American tyranny. It is therefore quite fitting that the old West, independent lawman is being revived and updated to help save the American Republic. This article describes their rise, establishment and continuation as perhaps the last bulwark against Washington, DC tyranny.
I. History of Sheriffs of America
By Kelly OConnell Sunday, March 24, 2013
Can America’s sheriffs save our Constitution and our precious liberties? The exhaustive history of the sheriff has yet to be written, but much is known of the rise of these county leaders, once called shire reeves, in old England. Sheriffs are termed the “the oldest appointment of the English crown.” They represent transition from simple local rule to a nationalized attempt at keeping law and order. Sheriffs were first established when the Anglo-Saxon kingdoms were finally assembled into the Wessex-based Kingdom of England sometime around 1000 AD.
In the Colonies, the Crown established sheriffs, as done in Britain by royal decree. But, before long, the democratic process was employed to elect them. Today, they are the last bastion of popular representation in law enforcement.
Ironically, it now appears that the ancient sheriff, the last representative of popular, local federalism—might be the last chance for America to retain our civil liberties before the onslaught of Leviathan—the colossus of government tyranny.
This hope is best represented by the Oath Keepers, a group educating and supporting local sheriffs as defenders of our Constitution against creeping federal insurgency. Add to this the doctrine of Nullification, or refusal to apply unconstitutional laws, which sheriffs are now applying across America on various topics, such as gun regulations, and refusing federal demand for control.
“Let the future appointments of judges be for four or six years and renewable by the President and Senate. This will bring their conduct at regular periods under revision and probation, and may keep them in equipoise between the general and special governments.
We have erred in this point by copying England, where certainly it is a good thing to have the judges independent of the King. But we have omitted to copy their caution also, which makes a judge removable on the address of both legislative houses.” –Thomas Jefferson to William T. Barry, 1822. ME 15:389

There is only one term that can describe Sacramento’s Chief Federal Judge Morrison C. England Jr. And that term is a Cesspool bottom-feeder. I have nothing but contempt for this unprofessional pig.
I sat at the Plaintiff’s table with Orly Taitz and I was filled with outrage at the way this scum-bag was treating my attorney. And, of course, while he was ridiculing my attorney, he was likewise ridiculing me.
At the beginning, anyone with at least two brain cells in their head, could tell that England was bent on making the hearing a mockery of justice and had no impartiality in the matter before him…NONE! He declared that OBAMA WAS THE PRESIDENT AND THE MATTER HAD ALREADY BEEN CERTIFIED BY THE HAWAIIAN HEALTH DIRECTOR. Orly tried to tell him that this so-called “birth certificate” had been proven to be a forgery and Sheriff Apario had declared the document to be fraudulent, but England did not want any facts to be presented to him…he already had his mind made up.
Islam is the fastest growing religion in England and Wales, according to new census data. The number of people identifying with no religion nearly doubled over the last decade while the percentage of people who call themselves Christians has dropped to 59 percent, down from 72 percent 10 years ago.
Of the roughly 56.07 million people counted in the census, 33.24 million described themselves as “Christian” while 2.7 million identified as Muslims, an increase from 3.0 percent to 4.8 percent over a 10-year period. Further, the 2.7 million Muslims in England and Wales make it the second largest religion there. The next largest religions are Hinduism (817,000), Sikhism (423,000), Buddhism (248,000) and Judaism (263,000).
The Pilgrims Weren’t Socialists
The New American ^ | 26 November 2008 | Andrew Lane
26 November 2008
When next you sing the Hymn of Harvest Home, think kindly of our Pilgrim Fathers, for they were not “communists with a small c” nor any other kind of communists, Some conservative editors and commentators in recent years have given the impression that the Pilgrims were starry-eyed idealists intent upon founding a socialist utopia in the wilderness.
One such editor, zealous to refute socialism, has written: “Socialism is not a new experiment in the United States. Neither is Communism. The Socialist community was tried by the Pilgrims in New England over three hundred years ago. The dream of the Pilgrims didn’t work and the Mayflower Compact was a total failure.”
That is nutshell history as spurious as it is brief. It misrepresents the purpose of the Pilgrims and the results of their heroic strivings. It derives from a superficial appraisal of a statement by Governor William Bradford and a partial reading of the copious records left by the literate Pilgrims.
Stated in the simplest terms, and in their own language, the Pilgrims purposed to lay a good foundation for propagating and advancing the Gospel of the Kingdom of Christ in remote parts of the world. In order to make that possible, they sought financial backing from a group of venture capitalists in England. While in Holland, the Pilgrims gave much consideration to what part of the world they would settle and finally decided upon Northern Virginia, above Jamestown but below the Hudson River. Negotiations with a syndicate called the Merchants and Adventurers of London dragged on for three years. Finally in 1620 the Pilgrims wound up on the wrong end of a bad bargain.
In his weekly update, released today, Congressman Ron Paul defends those who have signed petitions in all 50 states advocating secession from the federal government, referring to the principle as “deeply American”.
Echoing comments he made back in 2009, Paul notes “This country was born through secession. Some thought it was treasonous to secede from England, but those “traitors” became our country’s greatest patriots.”
“…the principles of self-government and voluntary association are at the core of our founding….There is nothing treasonous or unpatriotic about wanting a federal government that is more responsive to the people it represents.” the Congressman adds.
Explaining that the recent election only served to further entrench the political status quo, Paul urges “…our own federal government is vastly overstepping its constitutional bounds with no signs of reform.” He reminds Americans that “the first and third paragraph of the Declaration of Independence expressly contemplate the dissolution of a political union when the underlying government becomes tyrannical.”
The congressman said that the solution for combating all these dangers was rejection of government force of rule and “the simple moral premise of rejecting all acts of aggression”.
Paul ended, as ever, with modesty and with a simple, straightforward message:
“I have come to one firm conviction after these many years of trying to figure out the plain truth of things. The best chance for achieving peace and prosperity, for the maximum number of people worldwide, is to pursue the cause of liberty. If you find this to be a worthwhile message, spread it throughout the land.”
Beer is without question, like Pizza, Madonna
, and fast cars, an icon of modern American culture. That the white working class American male is stereotypically referred to as “Joe Six-pack” is but one example of the dominance of beer as lower and middle- class America’s preferred alcoholic beverage. But this was not always the case. 150 years ago, in the 1840s, hard cider held the position now held by beer as the preferred alcoholic beverage of the working class.
A foretaste of what is likely to occur in London when the Olympic games open on Friday, July 27, occurred on July 20 when a Muslim youth shouting in Arabic, “God is great”, attempted to seize the Olympic torch as it was being carried through Maidstone toward Redhill.
Washington’s First Fourth (“Before he was America’s first president, George Washington was a spy and a soldier, serving on America’s frontier. His spying activities in advance of…”)
Before he was America’s first president, George Washington was a spy and a soldier, serving on America’s frontier. His spying activities in advance of the French and Indian War brought him a national reputation and helped precipitate that great war. The reputation he built then secured a military command for him in that war which would eventually lead to international acclaim as America’s first commander-in-chief.
They wanted nothing about our Declaration of Independence to be ambiguous.
There Ought To Be a Law Against Making So Many Laws
The Aspen Times ^ | June 14, 2012 | Charlie Leonard
Posted on Thursday, June 14, 2012 9:38:58 AM by Aspenhuskerette
“It will be of little avail to the people that the laws are made by men of their own choice if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood; if they be repealed or revised before they are promulgated, or undergo such incessant changes that no man who knows what the law is today can guess what it will be tomorrow.”
Sixty-eight years ago this week, my father, Ralph “Pat” Malone, bored with being confined to barracks with the rest of the 401st bomb group, sneaked off his base at Deenthorpe, England, and rode a bicycle into the nearby village to a pub to meet a local girl he was sweet on.
Hours later, as he rode back, he noticed that all of the lights on the base were on and, hidden behind a rise in the landscape, the 36 B-17s were already revving up.
One of the most influential founding fathers, and the only one of them to have signed all of the original founding documents (the Declaration of Independence, the Treaty of Paris, and the U.S. Constitution) was Benjamin Franklin. Franklin was…without question, deeply involved in Freemasonry and in other secret societies.
He belonged to secret groups in the three countries involved in the War of Independence: America, France, and England. He was master of the Masonic Lodge of Philadelphia; while over in France, he was master of the Nine Sisters Lodge, from which sprang the French Revolution. In England, he joined a rakish political group founded by Sir Francis Dashwood (member of Parliament, advisor to King George III) called the “Monks of Medmenham Abbey,” otherwise known as the “Hellfire Club.” This eighteenth-century group is described as follows.
The Hellfire Club was an exclusive, English club that met sporadically during the mid-eighteenth century. Its purpose, at best, was to mock traditional religion and conduct orgies. At worst, it involved the indulgence of satanic rites and sacrifices. The club to which Franklin belonged was established by Francis Dashwood, a member of Parliament and friend of Franklin. The club, which consisted of “The Superior Order” of twelve members, allegedly took part in basic forms of satanic worship. In addition to taking part in the occult, orgies and parties with prostitutes were also said to be the norm.
Pinto continues this connection between Benjamin Franklin and dark occultism:
On February 11, 1998, the Sunday Times reported that ten bodies were dug up from beneath Benjamin Franklin’s home at 36 Craven Street in London. The bodies were of four adults and six children. They were discovered during a costly renovation of Franklin’s former home. The Times reported: “Initial estimates are that the bones are about two hundred years old and were buried at the time Franklin was living in the house, which was his home from 1757 to 1762 and from 1764 to 1775. Most of the bones show signs of having been dissected, sawn or cut. One skull has been drilled with several holes.”
The original Times article reported that the bones were “deeply buried, probably to hide them because grave robbing was illegal.” They said, “There could be more buried, and there probably are.” But the story doesn’t end there. Later reports from the Benjamin Franklin House reveal that not only were human remains found, but animal remains were discovered as well. This is where things get very interesting. From the published photographs, some of the bones appear to be blackened or charred, as if by fire… It is well documented that Satanists perform ritual killings of both humans and animals alike.
While many students of history are aware of the magic 666 square and its use by occultists down through time to control the spirit of Apollo/Osiris, what some will not know is how this magical binding and loosing of supernatural entities also extends to the testes of Washington’s 6,666 inch-high phallic Obelisk, dedicated by Freemasons seventy-two years following 1776 (note the magic number 72), where a Bible (that Dan Brown identified as the “Lost Symbol” in his latest book) is encased within the cornerstone of its 666-inch-square base.
One wonders what type of Bible this is. If a Masonic version, it is covered with occult symbols of the Brotherhood and Rosicrucianism and the purpose for having it so encased might be to energize the Mason’s interpretation of Scripture in bringing forth the seed of Osiris/Apollo from the testes/cornerstone.
The concept of vaccinating to immunize began in 1796, when British apothecary (pharmacist) Edward Jenner inserted cowpox pus under the skin of an eight year old boy. Jenner based his experiment on an unsubstantiated rumor that anyone who had experienced cowpox would be immune to smallpox.
Over the next couple of years, Jenner vaccinated others with cowpox to immunize them against smallpox. Without any actual proof of efficacy and safety, Jenner impressed King George III enough with a bogus immunization guarantee that he was awarded the equivalent of today’s $500,000.
Thus, Jenner was the first medical professional to administer diseased matter as medication to a healthy person and receive a substantial financial award. He was also the first to constantly denounce vaccination detractors successfully. He was protecting both his ego and large public purse.
HISTORY Not Now Taught in Public Schools – The Cover-Up of the Truth
This is a great beginning in understanding how we’ve always been “off the tracks”.
I’ve highlighted most of the years used in this article to better visualize where one is and have resort back to, at any given time. I’ve attempted to “clean up” some of the punctuation/spacing/capitalization problems that one experiences, when comparing the below with the pdf original. The embedded links, found in the body of the piece, regrettably, don’t work; they bring up something totally unrelated. Please pardon the seemingly unsendable spacing corrections, that eliminate themselves, while in e-mail transit. pjr
HISTORY Not Now Taught in Public Schools – The Cover-Up of the Truth
This article came from an Encyclopedia of American History, used to teach school kids until 1955, published by Harper and Row. It is 840 pages of a wealth of information. It shows the man who really discovered America. It shows all the land was called the Virginia land company, in dispute with the two corporations; the East India company and the Hudson Bay company. All three companies were owned by British business corporations. Remember; the American did not know, at the time, that the Vatican owned and controlled these British corporations, and their subjects, since the 1214 Treaty the King had with the Vatican’s Pope.
However, to hide this fact, the King was allowed to be the front for the Vatican (so as to hide this fact), as the modern Mafia has corporations front for them to hide from the FBI and other agencies. So, with that background, we shall see just how far down the slippery slopes of the Corporations of the States and United States are allowed to stifle education, so much so, that people have no clue who they really are and no clue who controls them. I will not make any comment, as it is all from the history books. You present day people, under 58, never have seen books in schools like this. IF I DO MAKE COMMENTS, it will be in all CAPS with [[[brackets around them]]]. The bolds are from the book itself and is not by chapters, but by the era of the time periods and you are referred to other pages of the book. So one is constantly going back and forth in the book.
What War Really Is
Freedom Betrayed, by Herbert Hoover
Hoover asks the question, “Shall we send our youth to war?” in an article prepared for the August, 1939 issue of the American Magazine, he writes:
First, let me say something from this experience of what war really is. Those who lived in it, and our American boys who fought in it, dislike to recall its terribleness. We dwell upon its glories – the courage, the heroism, the greatness of spirit in men. I myself should like to forget all else….Amid the afterglow of glory and legend we forget the filth, the stench, the death, of the trenches. We forget the dumb grief of mothers, wives, and children.
War is hell. We are told this whenever we mention the atrocities committed, as if this pithy little phrase justifies the tragedy. Hoover here sees that war IS hell, however he sees this as reason to avoid entering in every way possible.
There is a scene in the movie “The Americanization of Emily.” This movie stars James Garner as Charlie Madison, an American officer in England during WWII, and Julie Andrews as Emily Barham, a British war widow – also having lost other family members to war.
The scene has Charlie Madison visiting the home of Mrs. Barham, Emily’s mother. Mrs. Barham is in great denial regarding the many deaths that war has brought to her family – her husband and son among others. She still acts as if her husband is alive, and Emily goes along with this denial.
When Mrs. Barham exclaims that after the war, it will be all the generals and statesmen writing books saying how it could have been avoided, Charlie explains that he doesn’t blame the generals and statesmen. He blames the mothers! The mothers make heroes out of their dead sons; they are the first to walk in the parade. Charlie explains that his own mother did this regarding Charlie’s brother. And now Charlie’s youngest brother can’t wait to enlist.
The clip is about ten minutes long, and I highly recommend spending the time. It can be found here:
In describing those who fought in the trenches in the First World War, Hoover writes:
…Congressman Paul votes NO on any legislation that is not expressly authorized by the Constitution. He votes No a lot.
He has NEVER voted to raise taxes; He has NEVER voted for an unbalanced budget; He has NEVER voted for a restriction on gun ownership; NEVER voted to raise congressional pay.
Nor has he ever voted to fund the United Nations.
According to a University of Georgia political scientist, Ron Paul had the most conservative voting record of any member of Congress from 1937 to 2002. His future performance as president can be predicted based on his past performance as a Congressman.
In 1775, the military commander of the British forces in Boston, General Gage, wrote a letter to King George. General Gage complained, “I have a nation of lawyers, everyone is a lawyer, they know your statutes better then you know them yourself.”
At that time more copies of Blackstone’s Commentaries on the Laws of England were sold in the Colonies then were sold in England. These colonists knew their rights, they knew the law, and consequently they were willing to fight for their rights.
So it is with those of us who, one by one, become Ron Paul supporters.
In 2008, Ron Paul held a national convention for his Campaign for Liberty at the Target Center in Minneapolis.
There were over 10,000 people in attendance. I was one of them. And when the name of a free market economist was mentioned, names like Fredrick Hyack, Milton Freedman or Ludwig von Misses, the crowd cheered as if Magic Johnson had been in the arena playing basketball.
One of my all-time favorite pieces of literature is this section from Friedrich Schiller‘s William Tell:
“By this fair light which greeteth us, before
Those other nations, that, beneath us far,
In noisome cities pent, draw painful breath,
Swear we the oath of our confederacy!
A band of brothers true we swear to be,
Never to part in danger or in death!
“We swear we will be free as were our sires,
And sooner die than live in slavery!
“We swear, to put our trust in God Most High,
And not to quail before the might of man!”
“This story shall the good man teach his son;
And Crispin Crispian shall ne’er go by,
From this day to the ending of the world,
But we in it shall be remembered.
“We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he today that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother, be he ne’er so vile.
This day shall gentle his condition.
“And gentlemen in England now-a-bed
Shall think themselves accurs’d they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon Saint Crispin’s day.”
When the federal government was created, those who risked their lives and their fortunes and their scared honors to secede from England were animated by recent events. The government did not come into existence in a vacuum. Rather, those who led the Revolutionary War joined those who fought and financed it to create a central government that would be constitutionally incapable of doing to Americans what King George III and Parliament did to the colonists.
The king abridged many personal freedoms, but among them, religion and the right to keep income were at the top of the list, along with the freedom of speech and the right to be left alone. The reason that religious rights and property rights so animated the Founders is simple: They had been aggressively assaulted by the British government, and most of it had to do with money.
The king and Parliament imposed a tax on the colonists to support the king’s church in England. And the king and Parliament imposed an obligation on the colonists to purchase the king’s stamps and to affix them to all papers in their possession in America. The Stamp Act led to the invasion of the colonists’ homes by British soldiers without warrants, ostensibly looking for the stamps. Both of these taxes led to the Revolution, and the bitter aftertaste they left behind, in turn, led to a firm determination on the part of those who wrote the Constitution to craft a document that would assure that the new government would be constitutionally incapable of similar behavior.
How well have the Framers’ hopes and plans and constitutional craftsmanship worked out? Not very well. I have written six books about the violations of the Constitution that the government has gotten away with. The feds take your taxes and give it to folks who will vote for them. They even fine churches that fail to violate their core teachings on contraception. These are not light or fleeting issues.
Today, Americans who rely on government entitlements receive an average of $32,700 worth of benefits every year. The average American’s annual income after taxes — Americans who work, not those who receive benefits — is $32,400. This is the first time in history that we have seen this inversion. I realize that this is just an average, but the numbers show, by a tiny amount, that the average recipient of entitlements has more disposable wealth than the average wage earner.
These entitlements cost the taxpayers about $2.5 trillion per year. The federal government collects only $2.5 trillion a year in revenue. So, the rest of the government — defense, justice, the goons in the TSA, national parks, even the Post Office — is paid for by borrowing. And most of the borrowing is paid for by the Federal Reserve printing cash. And that causes inflation, which decreases the purchasing power of your savings.

(Feb. 14, 2012) — An understanding of history is the only thing that can illuminate our understanding of religious liberty. Our ignorance of history (not to mention a dangerous level of apathy) is allowing a tyrant to erode the liberty that people of faith have enjoyed for over two centuries.
We believe that we have moved beyond the days of kings and serfs, yet here we are, repeating the very history our forefathers attempted to prevent us from repeating. It is exactly the same show that was played out again and again throughout the English history that gave us our founding documents, just different characters.
A reader asked this question recently.
“There’s a gay guy at my work who’s totally obnoxious, self-centered, and spiteful, and yet all the female employees adore him. They’re hover around him all day like groupies, hanging on his every word and laughing at his jokes.”
“Are they just too stupid to realize he’s a jerk, or are women so insecure in the company of real men that they prefer the emasculated ones? This seems to be the case everywhere.”
Before I give my opinion, let’s look at some of the explanations I found online……
When we were colonists and fought a war against the king and Parliament so that we could secede from the British Empire and be independent of it, we also fought for the value of personal freedom. That is the idea that in matters of personal choice, the government should play no role. The king only cared about the colonists’ personal choices if he could control or tax them.
One of the taxes he imposed was to support the Church of England. The Church of England that the colonists’ tax dollars supported was, of course, in England; it was not here. So, among the hateful taxes that impelled the colonists to revolt was this tax to support the king’s church.
When the Constitution was written, religious freedom was a principal matter for discussion and debate among the framers. They addressed this in the first clause of the First Amendment. Before the Constitution even protects the freedom of speech, it protects the natural right to worship or not to worship, free from the government. Here is what it says: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof. …”
That is very direct and clear. It was intended to prevent any tax money from going to a church, and it was intended to keep the government from using its coercive powers to influence or to punish religious institutions. For 125 years, most governments in America left churches alone.
Then along came the progressive attitude that some ethnic groups are superior to others. This is a damnable and racist view foisted upon the federal government by Theodore Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson, in direct response to the influx of southern European immigrants at the beginning of the last century, most of whom were Catholic. Roosevelt and Wilson and their progressive followers thought these immigrants had too many children, children who would grow up to be voters and vote out their nanny-state central-planning values. So they began to encourage birth control and sterilizations and even abortions.
The Catholic Church resisted this by its teachings on birth control. The Church had made its teaching on contraception a core part of its mission for 400 years, and Pope Paul VI reaffirmed these teachings in a permanent way in 1968. That the Church embraces these teachings is well-known, and equally as well-known is the policy of the federal government to resist them.
London, England-In yet another outrageous piece of social engineering from our coalition government, pensioners will be encouraged to downsize to smaller properties allowing local councils to rent their homes out as council houses and manage the tenancy.
In spite of everything we have been taught about history, the truth is now painfully clear—there has never been “real money” involved.
Since Mercantilist London established International banking, the actual truth of it has been hidden in plain sight. If you believe capitalism somehow derives from deposits of wealth into banks, You, like me and virtually everyone else, were cruelly misinformed.
Capitalism is simply a grand illusion performed on the world by Masonic, Cabalists who created the means of financing otherwise impossible economies of scale out of thin air, and using that Godlike Luciferian power to enslave the world. Never mind all that crap about goldsmiths and receipts. It is all part of the greatest trick the devil ever played.
Anne Dekins was a loud-mouthed party girl – or at least, that’s what the arrest warrant suggested. Whatever she may have done in the past, Miss Dekins was quietly minding her own business when Officer Samuel Bray found her on the street and began to haul her away.
Dekins wasn’t inclined to go quietly, and she put up a struggle. Her cries for help attracted the interest of several armed men led by an individual named Tooley, who confronted Bray and demanded to know what he was doing to the frantic woman. The officer produced his official credentials and insisted that he was making a lawful arrest for “disorderly conduct.” When witnesses disputed that description, Bray called for backup.

These men feared that the Federalists desired a corrupted version of England’s monarchist approach, which would include a standing army, high taxes and government-subsidized monopolies. It only takes but a brief minute to fast forward and see through time that exactly that has occurred.
Yes, Aristotle declared there to be a limit to the size of states: “a limit, as there is to other things, plants, animals, implements; for none of these retain their natural power when they are too large…, but they either wholly lose their nature, or are spoiled,” so he said.
But, really, what the hell did he know? He lived at a time when the entire population of the world was somewhere around 50 million people – about the size of England today – the population of the Greek-speaking city-states, which were not united in a nation, in all may have been 8 million, and Athens, where he lived, considered a large city, would have been under 100,000 people. Limits? He couldn’t even imagine a world (ours) of 6.8 billion, a nation (China) of 1.3 billion, or a city (Tokyo) of 36 million. How is he going to help us?

In a press conference this evening, the president referred in stumbling fashion to the “English Embassy” in Iran instead of the British Embassy. One can only imagine the kind of howls of derision that would greet any presidential contender if that kind of basic error were made before, say, the editorial board of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. You can watch the video above. In case the president is unaware, England forms part of Great Britain, which also includes Scotland and Wales, though not Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom. There is no such thing as an “English” embassy anywhere in the world, and there hasn’t been one for several centuries.

When the Pilgrims arrived on the Mayflower, they set up a society in which no one could own property and everyone shared equally, no matter how much work they did. The result was misery and hunger. But when the governor allowed each man to plant and raise crops for his own household, something amazing happened.

Always loved this 1947 Phil Harris record – when I was a kid it was regularly being played on BBC radio…the henpecked husband being chased by an angry wife wielding a rolling pin was a staple figure of comedy in the 30s, 40s and 50s…hence the plaintive plea to the woodman.

Airline passengers were forced to stage a giant whip-round and hand over more than £20,000 in cash after being ‘held to ransom’ by their cash-strapped airline.
More than 180 passengers were left stranded on the tarmac when cabin crew announced during a refuelling stop that Austrian carrier Comtel Air had ‘run out of cash’.
The travellers had been returning to Birmingham on a chartered flight from Amritsa, India, when the airline’s money woes became apparent during the stopover at Vienna
…Historians have speculated that Jefferson originally planned to use the concept of property ownership in that iconic litany of human rights, but he feared that addressing slavery in the same document in which he had characterized the long train of abuses visited upon the colonists by the king of England would have opened the Declaration and its signers to charges of hypocrisy.
Nevertheless, Talmudic and Christian scholars, and renowned skeptics, even atheists and deists, had long held, by Jefferson’s time, that the divine right of kings was a myth, that all humans own their own bodies, and that personal freedoms are integral to those bodies. Whether the ultimate source of human freedom is found in theology or biology, freedom exists, freedom is ours by nature, and the long history of the world is really one unceasing, increasing catalogue of the epic battles for personal freedoms against government tyranny…
Like “1984″, Emanuel’s book dealt with a future utopian/dystopian society, but his book “Messiah of the Cylinder” (MOTC) did not shy away from overt religious or spiritual issues.
Both of these books were set in a future-to-be England, and this reviewer found MOTC’s future England to be a curious mixture of 1984′s England and that of another future England, the one of Aldous Huxley‘s “Brave New World“.
There are two principle worldviews competing for the hearts of the novel’s characters: secular/religious humanism versus biblical/cultural Christianity.
Other supporting world movements were also mentioned in the novel, as well.
I include the brief excerpts here. The novel will have to be read by any interested person to gain the context of the story.
. . . . . . . . . . .
— PAGE 93 — “”Russia,” he continued, “crushed her revolution, too, as she had crushed earlier anarchistic outbreaks. But though she has discovered the glow paint, she has not the Ray. The Federation is consequently at war with her, for her antiquated ideals make her a menace to civilization. Besides, we need her wheat- fields. We have an army of ten thousand men, two from each of the five Provinces, and have cooped up the young Tsar, Alexander, with his army of a million men, in Tula. His surrender is expected daily.” “
. . .
— PAGE 260 —
“She gathered her strength with a last effort of will. *The plan was of long standing. Events hastened it. Mehemet knew it. Britain was to have a God again, Mehemet’s God, and the American Mormons were to unite with us, for their faith is nearly the same. The people would have a god, and this would unite all nations against the Christian Russians. They are in Stockholm. The American battleplanes are on their way to help us against them. When Sanson was dead the guards were to join the air- scouts. Now you must go. Save your Elizabeth. Kill Sanson. I can say no more. Escape — ” “
(Context: England had been taken over by an agressive Darwinian-atheistic-communistic regime. Russia still had a Czarist Christian Russian government. Oh, by the way, the novel is set in the year 2017, albeit written in 1917!!!)
. . . . .
—PAGE 298 — “The Guard cheered frantically. I heard the cry “America!” If this was the Mormon fleet, come to aid Lemb- ken, there was no doubt with which side it would join. Perhaps the Guard knew already that Sanson had outwitted Lembken and outbid him for its support.”
(Context: America had been taken over by a Mormon-theocratical government. Remember, this is set in the year 2017.)
. . . . .
— PAGE 311 —
“Three months have passed. It is Easter Day, and we have only begun to struggle with the difficulties before us.
But we are working with a faith that will over- come all obstacles. All the world is at work, for the same impulse was felt simultaneously in every land. The Mormon airplanes never arrived, because, practically at the same hour, America rose in revolt against her masters. And the Sanson regime has been swept away forever. “
(Context: This is the epilogue near the end of the book.)
. . .
— PAGE 313 —
“I call to mind the second huge public gathering on the day after the Revolution, when the dread of massacre had proved unfounded. The populace had been taught to believe that the Russians were blood- thirsty savages, instead of which we discovered child-like enthusiasts. It was a shock to most of us to discover that they considered themselves Cru- saders, upon a mission to restore Christ to the world. I recall vividly the great red crosses on the breasts of their white uniforms, the icon banners that are still flapping everywhere; then the people’s wonder and terror at the horses ; lastly the young Tsar’s en- trance into the capital, to attend the reconsecration of the Temple, and the amazing influence of king- ship upon a crowd that had never known reverence or loyalty, except through fear.
Then the universal joy at the release of all the inmates of the defectives and moron shops, the tears and shouts that accompanied the restoration to their families, of those who had been believed lost for- ever; husbands and wives, parents and children, brothers and sisters, friends and friends. No one was afraid to be glad. It was as if a dark cloud had rolled away and disclosed the sun.
And the astonishment and enthusiasm as the people listened to the teachings of Christianity. After three months there are still crowds at all the street corners, hearing the doctrines and the story of Christ from priests and missionaries. “
. . .
That’s enough commentary and excerpting from me for now.

During a televised discussion of the past week’s riots in England on Friday night, a prominent English historian sparked outrage by insisting that black, Afro-Caribbean culture was to blame for the mayhem and looting, even when the rioters were white.
David Starkey, who has presented several documentaries on the Tudor period, said during a BBC debate: “the problem is that the whites have become black — a particular sort of violent, destructive, nihilistic gangster culture has become the fashion — and black and white, boy and girl, operate in this language together; this language, which is wholly false, which is a Jamaican patois, that’s been intruded in England, and this is why so many of us have this sense of literally a foreign country.”
Asked if he was saying that the prophecy of Enoch Powell — an English politician who claimed in a speech in 1968 that immigration would eventually mean, “the black man will have the whip hand over the white man” in Britain — had come true, Mr. Starkey replied: “That’s not true.” He added, “it’s not skin color, it’s cultural.”
The historian then sought to illustrate his point by referring to the way one of London’s leading black politicians, David Lammy, speaks. “Listen to David Lammy,” Mr. Starkey said, “an archetypical, successful black man: if you turned the screen off, so that you were listening to him on radio, you’d think he was white.”
The other participants in the debate quickly objected to Mr. Starkey’s remarks. Owen Jones, the author of a book about working class culture in Britain, told the historian: “It’s utterly outrageous, obviously, what you’re saying. What you’re doing is you’re equating black culture with criminality.”

London Calling: The Endgame for the Welfare State Has Begun
London Calling: The Endgame for the Welfare State Has Begun:
“State Socialism’s Ultimate Product is a Permanent Underclass of Entitled Thugs
It’s been over three decades since the magnificent, rabble-rousing and ultimately silly English punk group, The Clash, recorded its stirring riot-anthem, “The Guns of Brixton.” Now the streets of not-so-Merry Olde England have been trashed and torched again, but the similarity in thuggish behavior masks radically different inspirations and aims. The Brit riots of the 1970s and early 1980s arose from the death throes of labor-union tyranny over an entire nation; from the birthing pains of a post-modern economy, and from urban collisions between races. Today’s Swinging-a-club London has been wracked by inbred street criminals with a sense of entitlement.
I wrote an article called 5 Places NOT To Be When The Dollar Collapses. In it I wrote that societies that benefited the most from the dollar would be the worst places to be when it fell apart. While the dollar has not even collapsed yet, the strain in these areas is becoming more apparent. England is number 3 on the list has had 4 days of violent riots as people start to lose it. Israel is number 1 on that list has had massive protests. There is revolution in the air all over the world except in the US.
America is still in deep denial which is still the first stage of the Awakening. This denial will be wiped away when the dollar collapses. For now the economy is still functioning with food and fuel available. Americans still have the illusion of wealth and normalcy. They still are stuck in the false left right paradigm and think some other sock puppet will turn things around.
When the dollar collapses, all American illusions will collapse with it. Deep denial will turn into deep anger. The violence I expect in the other 3 areas on the list and all urban areas in the US, will make all other global riots pale in comparison. America is deeply infused with arrogance, denial, narcissism, drugs and violence. There is no other society that I know of that has the degree of intensity and combination of these factors.
“We’re Number 1! We’re Number 1!”

A group of anti-rioters marched through Enfield, in north London, aiming to deter looters. “We are the Enfield anti-rioting squad,” said one local resident. “You want to riot our place, we will riot you mate. This is our area not your area.” Another Enfield resident said his fellow vigilantes were the “people that are London, not the small minority that are going around smashing up stuff, that have got nothing to wake up for in the morning.”
London Riots: Croydon Residents Leap From Burning Buildings As Capital Burns People were forced to leap from the upstairs windows of a burning building in Croydon last night as rioting spread across London and beyond.

On the third consecutive night of violence and looting, hordes of balaclava-clad yobs stormed shops, setting fire to businesses indiscriminately.
As police fought running battles with mobs of rioters – many of them teenagers – detectives were also called to investigate a shooting incident. A Metropolitan Police source said the incident was believed to be “non-fatal”.
Among the casualties of the arson attacks was a furniture store that has stood for nearly 150 years in the south London borough.
Reeves, a family run business established in 1867, was engulfed in flames sending smoke billowing across the London skyline. As the blaze raged out of control, the store’s owner Trevor Reeves said: “It’s just completely destroyed. Words fail me. It’s just gone, it’s five generations. My father is distraught. It’s just mindless thuggery.”
His brother Graham added: “Our lives are destroyed, it will probably be someone else next week. It’s horrendous.”
Elsewhere, residents trapped in flats above a burning pharmacist’s shop were forced to jump to safety from a first storey window.
Silhouetted against the inferno behind her, a young woman was captured hurling herself into the arms of firefighters waiting to catch her below.
The scenes of smashed shop windows and hordes of protesters pilfering goods stood in stark contrast to the defensive plans the police and local authority had laid out earlier in the day.

Col. Peter J Ortriz
I was speaking with my father (who is now in his 80th year) when he told me that he had been asked to give a short talk to a group of young schoolchildren about his experiences in the 1939-1945 war.
Whenever he talks about the war the name of Peter Ortiz is always mentioned with some awe and respect.
In order to find out a little more about him we searched the web and came across your excellent sites.
My father was one of the four Royal Airforce Officers mentioned in the sites that Peter Ortiz helped to escape from France.
The four Officers were part of a seven man special operations 4 engined Halifax bomber crew. They came from Royal Airforce 138 (Special Duties) Squadron whose sole task was to drop arms and agents into Europe.
They were a highly experienced crew who had already completed one tour of 28 bombing missions over Germany and this was their 13th Special Duty trip.
On the night in question my father remembers the weather as being appalling. They really should not have been flying but there was great pressure to get another agent (now known to be Francis Cammearts) into Southern France.
When over France an engine caught fire. With the poor weather and accumulation of ice on the aircraft they could not maintain height and all crew bailed out. On the ground they met up in two groups, the group containing my father joining the resistance group operated by Peter Ortiz. They remaining crew joining another group.
Having spent some time in a marquis camp they were taken by Peter Ortiz personally by road and rail to the Spanish border.
What amazed all four Officers is that through out this time Peter Ortiz was wearing his Marine uniform under his coat, even in the rail station and on the train which was swarming with Germans who no doubt would have been very pleased to catch him.
My father simply said, as he has many times before, that Peter Ortiz was probably the bravest man he has ever met.
By way of interest all seven members of the crew escaped to England. All but one survived the war. He was killed on another Special Duty mission to Norway in 1945. The remaing crew kept in contact throughout their lives but sadly today there are only two members of the Crew still alive.
If you are able to contact the family of Peter Ortiz you may like to tell them that in England there is at least one man, fifty eight years after the event, who still remembers Peter Ortiz with great affection and respect and that during this week a class of nine year old English school children will learn of his exploits in helping the English Officers.
With kind regards
