This Sure Isn’t The America I Grew Up With!
I just can’t believe that the average American looks at the stock market and says, “this country is in great shape – just look at the Dow.” There is no way that the public is THAT stupid or blind.
The increasing degree of corruption in our financial and political system continues to blow my mind. Every day I uncover new evidence and facts about just how rotten to the core our system has become. What’s even more staggering is that the average American just “turns the other cheek” and let’s it happen. The Government has zero opposition to its frightening move towards a Totalitarian State.
And this stage show going on DC between Democrats and Republicans is nothing more than idle entertainment. MTV for the political class and for the masses who are glued on a daily basis to the farce that is disguised as news being broadcast on Fox News, CNN, Bloomberg and CNBC. Amazingly to me, intelligent, educated adults just stare and absorb and accept. It’s Huxley’s “Brave New World” unfolding before my eyes. What passes for “news” and accurate reporting of the facts is a complete insult to the intelligence of the few of us left who have the willingness to question what’s happening and to grasp the real truth. The truth is that this country is collapsing.
Whatever you want to call going on in DC right now, it is an unmitigated fact that the end result will be an even bigger disaster for our country. What really staggers me is that Americans are pounding the table for a resolution to the budget and debt ceiling impasse. For what end? So that the Government can continue its deficit spending and INCREASE the ability to print money and create more debt in order to fund that spending. It’s the equivalent of the chickens in the barnyard cheering for Colonel Sanders – on their way to the slaughterhouse. You got that America: anyone who is supporting either Party in this DC debate is no better than one of Colonel Sanders’ chickens – about to be fried and eaten.
I was having a discussion with a friend earlier this morning about what’s happened to this country:
It’s amazing how robotic Americans have become – Huxley’s brave new world is here. What irritates me the most is this insistence and widespread acceptance that you have to be “socially/politically correct.”
The people running the show behind the scenes – the true elitists – were brilliant in choosing a black man to be President. His policies are more fascist than were Bush’s but you can’t disagree with Obama or you risk being labelled “anti-black.” I had that aspect figured out right after he was elected in ’08.
You can’t name one campaign promise Obama has fulfilled other than Obamacare, which is going to probably be – ironically – the sledge hammer (not straw) that breaks this country’s back.

May I propose why Obama’s [growing] mental illness is “a topic largely untouched?” It is because the mainstream media which should be reporting on it, is afflicted with the same type of mental illness and incompetence. All one has to do is visit the MSNBC Network. It has a history of hiring (as their anchors) personalities which would not succeed in the real world of honest business. Some time ago this Moralmatters.org author did an article about MSNBC’S hate mongering extremism, which I believe severely taints all that they report [on]:

Amidst the flood of propaganda these days on behalf of what must be the most breathtaking expansion of Presidential power since Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal, especially glaring are the assertions of self-styled “conservative” media personalities that nothing is amiss, because: (i) the President is “Commander in Chief;” (ii) in that capacity he supposedly enjoys “inherent” power to take whatever actions he may deem necessary to protect this country from “terrorism;” (iii) assertion of this Presidential power is especially vital now, with this country engaged in a “war on terror;” and (iv) in any event,

I have never taken as much ridicule over a topic as I have over my reporting of the presence of Russian soldiers on American soil under some very suspicious circumstances which I published last September/October.
Conversely, I have never received so many tips from insider sources and average people who have just happened to have seen something related to the presence of Russian troops on American soil.
Russia attacks america 3Because of the controversy, followed by the chastisement and the possible danger of reporting on this topic, this would be a very easy subject for me to back away from. However, since I first published my concerns over Russian troops on American soil, coupled with our apparent military stand down in places like Alaska, my contention that the Russians are soon going to be playing a major role in the subjugation of this country, has grown exponentially.
By rendering the labor of one, the property of the other, they cherish pride, luxury, and vanity on one side; on the other, vice and servility, or hatred and revolt.

1787 Philadelphia, 55 state delegates met at the constitutional convention. They thought they were there to “update” our first constitution, the Articles of Confederation and Perpetual Union; not so, they were there actually to meet in secret and overthrow the Articles for a new constitution, and do it quickly.
Fourteen of the delegates returned home once they got wind of what was going on; the remaining 41 then set us up with a big government constitution that haunts us today.
The truth is there is only one President of the United States of America (POTUSA)at a time. Check the Constitution. Article II Section 1 Clause 1 vests the executive Power in a POTUSA and he and the VP shall hold Office “during the term of four Years.” The POTUSA has a four Year term not the President of the United States) ~ POTUS.November 2008 Archives – 3/4 – EDRIVERA.COM
The truth is there is only one President of the United States of America (POTUSA)at a time. Check the Constitution. Article II Section 1 Clause 1 vests the executive Power in a POTUSA and he and the VP shall hold Office “during the term of four Years.” The POTUSA has a four Year term not the President of the United States) POTUS.
Barack Obama, like every President Elect before him is doing his best to keep the people in the dark. There is only one POTUSA because that Office obtains its authority from the Articles of Confederation and not the Constitution. There is no Constitution because no President Elect has ever ”Adopted” it by swearing an Oath “to support this Constitution,” according to Article VI. If there is no Constitution, there can be no Office of President. There is a POTUS, because in the words of the current POTUSA and POTUS: the Constitution is just a piece of paper.
In The Articles of Confederation Reconsidered, I posited that our original constitution, the Articles of Confederation, was wholly adequate and superior to the Federalist Constitution that replaced it and that, had we kept the Articles of Confederation, we could have avoided the tyrannical government we have today entirely.
A reader of one of my articles on the Second Amendment had suggested that I read a rather obscure book titled, Hologram of Liberty, by Kenneth W. Royce (AKA Boston T. Party) and he used the term (coined by Royce), parchment worship while mentioning this book to me.
Well, I had already been vaguely aware that there was some sort of intrigue going on back in 1787 when the Constitution was written to supplant the allegedly inadequate Articles of Confederation, and I had heard it had something to do with some sort of scurrilous moves by the Federalists, lead by Alexander Hamilton, who were either infiltrated by Freemasons or were Freemasons, themselves (actually, as it turns out, so were some of the Anti-Federalists). But, that was all I could recall about it, having heard about this, initially, some thirty years ago.
Well, my thanks go out to that reader for reawakening me to this and I have now looked into the book he suggested, though I haven’t yet got a copy of it for myself. I did, however, visit the Javelin Press website, where there is a pretty fair amount of information about the book, including the following, which I have excerpted:
“Civic Belief #1: The Congress was given few specific powers. All else was left to the States and to the people under the 10th Amendment. Ample checks and balances protect the Republic from federal tyranny.
Is There a Constitution? – by Joseph Stromberg… “…that Madison swindled the ratifiers, and that this Original Swindle justifies all later swindles by Presidents, Congresses, and Courts. One might beg to differ. Indeed, the original understanding – decisively shaped by the propaganda of Madison, Hamilton, and Jay in the Federalist Papers – was fairly straightforward. The Constitution was, on the reading “sold” by the Constitution’s backers, a document which set up a few rules for the working of a general government for the common interests of the states. The Constitution would exist “between” the ratifying states; it was not set “over” them by a higher power.”
I now proceed to answer my own question: If the events of the last few weeks are any guide, then of course there is no Constitution. This should hardly come as a surprise to those high-minded liberals who have been hawking the virtues of a flexible, plastic, evolving Constitution for many decades. Yet, some of them, out of sheer sentimentality as regards the First Amendment, would now draw back from the militarist abyss lately reopened by the current administration in the name of Homeland Security.
Such liberal dissenters have not attended the many lectures offered by Neo-Conservative spokesmen like Jay Winik, the gist of which is that we can give up many of our civil liberties for the duration of the Emergency and then get them back again, only slightly wrinkled and stained. Since other low-minded Neo-Con spokesmen have announced that the Emergency may go on for decades, the exact date at which this fairy-tale ending – the return of liberty – will occur is left hanging in the Hegelian breeze. Perhaps the Neos should coordinate their propaganda a bit more tightly.
Electing the Enemy – Anti-American Philosophies Underlying Obama’s Policies
by LAWRENCE SELLIN, PHD August 5, 2013
The anti-American political philosophies underlying the policies of Barack Hussein Obama can be defined as the juncture of three ideologies: socialism, Islam and opportunistic racism to foster resentment among minority groups and promote race and class conflict as a lubricant for his radical transformation of the United States.
On face value, there would seem to be no more unlikely an alliance than between Western leftists and Islamists, the latter of whom emphatically and unambiguously reject virtually everything for which the socialist left has traditionally professed to stand: the peaceful resolution of international conflict; respect and tolerance for other cultures and faiths; civil liberties; freedom of expression; freedom of thought; human rights; democracy; women’s rights; gay rights; and the separation of church and state.
Not only have socialists proved to possess none of those beliefs, but, as David Horowitz has noted, they have been brought together with Islamists by the one overriding trait they do share — their hatred for the United States; their belief that our country is the very embodiment of evil on earth and, therefore, must be destroyed. While Islamic radicals seek to purge the world of heresies and of the infidels who practice them, leftist radicals seek to purge society’s collective “soul” of the vices allegedly spawned by capitalism — those being racism, sexism, imperialism, and greed.
This nation was founded upon the principle that man, given the ability, the will, and means to do so, could flourish under self-rule and the rule of law. Flourish, we have; the amount of economic growth and wonders this nation has seen in its short existence of only 236 years is astounding and has not been rivaled in history.
Many wonder at how this came about that we have stood in the belief of personal freedom to champion the individual, the cornerstone of our Republic above all else. We have accomplished this by creating a unique identify that embraces all, while giving none dominion over others. Our history is not blemish free, with the stain of slavery and oppression of the Indian Nations on our national honor.
We have endured, being true to our founding principles by righting these injustices with the blood of our ancestors shed in battle as this is the only way these sins can be paid.
One seminal danger that the Founders sought to address was that our President would never have divided loyalties with the simple requirement that our president be a natural born citizen as enumerated in Article II, Sec. 1 of our Constitution.
Starving the Monkeys™, Hologram of Liberty… ” Any thinking person who reads this book should walk away angry at the hoax that has been perpetrated on the people of this country. So why hasn’t this happened in droves? Two reasons……”
This book is a well-researched, scholarly dissection of the frauds surrounding the convention, the framing and the ratification of the Constitution for the United States of America. Any thinking person who reads this book should walk away angry at the hoax that has been perpetrated on the people of this country. So why hasn’t this happened in droves? Two reasons.
First, this books strikes at the core of all contemporary political debate. Don’t let the publication date of 1997 fool you; the material here is timeless. With a complete grasp of these ideas, it is easy to see that the left-right debate is merely a pointless sham. Powerful interests derive their power from your participation in a heated struggle, and don’t want you to realize that the struggle itself is based on a lie.
Second, people want to believe in the nobility of the framers. Popular conservative talk show hosts are currently putting on such ridiculous eulogizings as “Founders Fridays” to prop up this myth. Yet, those people were fallible, like everyone else, and equally susceptible to the corruption of power, and gullible to fraud. Boston provides many examples in this book of how many of our nobility were complicit in speculative equity and land deals in ways that would make modern schemers blush.

Concerned Enough To Act
Posted on Tuesday, July 30, 2013 11:35:16 AM by john de herrera
What’s more powerful, the right to complain about government, or the right to reform it? Clearly, one right is more powerful, and indeed it’s that one which makes an American citizen who and what they are – a member of a society with the power to alter or abolish what it dislikes about government.
You’ll find very few Americans today who want to abolish the government we have, the one with three branches – legislative, executive, and judicial. What the vast majority want is to keep what we have, but address concerns regarding how it currently operates.

But I want to make a serious point.
For those of us who want the prosperity and liberty made possible by smaller government and free markets, it would be ideal if the President actually did think his work was done.
If that was the case, presumably he wouldn’t propose new schemes to expand the size and scope of the public sector.

Gunny G: NOTE
Here’s a story i was emailed by the author, and I posted online, back in 2001!
Surprised to find it still online.
…..It seems incredible that this story never leaked out somewhere down the line. It happened in the jungle of Guadalcanal, in the Solomon Islands of the South Pacific fifty-seven years ago. Even though parts of the story might seem to cast inadvertent reflections upon the Corps, this is certainly not my intention. The fact that it did not come to light, I suppose, goes to prove how a handfull of servicemen can follow an order far and above beyond` what is really expected of them.
