This compilation video report just released by David Vose provides more proof of a ‘pre-planned’ crisis event to take place in America some time between September and November of 2013 and includes many MSM video reports from quite a few different sources pointing in that direction. What do they have planned for us now?………………..
Enjoying the great outdoors has spawned an entire market catering for campers who want to enjoy a hearty meal without overloading their rucksack.
Camping shops now sell a whole range of dried, lightweight foods – from all day breakfasts to chicken tikka masalas.
But now a new – and some might say revolutionary – addition to their food shelf has been added: Dried beer.
A U.S. brewer has managed to create a concentrate that simply requires water being added and carbonated shortly before it is drunk.
The Trouble With the Constitution… by Joseph R. Stromberg – “All across the American political spectrum, politicians and would-be opinion-molders clutch the United States Constitution to their bosoms and proclaim their unswerving loyalty to it and the vision of society, which they find therein. Left-liberals love the old parchment for the penumbras, emanations, and constructible silences and absences they espy in it. Oddly, for them the Constitution always seems to require that we immediately implement advanced social democracy and radical egalitarianism, lest Little Jamie Madison should start spinning in his grave. On the right, one finds vastly different readings of the Constitution, but…”
All across the American political spectrum, politicians and would-be opinion-molders clutch the United States Constitution to their bosoms and proclaim their unswerving loyalty to it and the vision of society, which they find therein. Left-liberals love the old parchment for the penumbras, emanations, and constructible silences and absences they espy in it. Oddly, for them the Constitution always seems to require that we immediately implement advanced social democracy and radical egalitarianism, lest Little Jamie Madison should start spinning in his grave.
On the right, one finds vastly different readings of the Constitution, but just as much professed loyalty to the old grocery list — a loyalty often resting on premises almost as dubious as those of the left-liberals. Here I have in mind Straussians, Neo-Conservatives, and all their heirs and assigns. Only on the hard left and hard right, do we fight what might be called realistic assessments of the Constitution’s original bearing and meaning. Of course, that said, the hard right and left hardly draw the same conclusions from their respective realistic analyses.
No Time for Smelling Salts… “Washington – This is no time for sissies – be they couch potatoes watching what’s going on in Egypt on TV or pyramids of power like President Barack Obama doing his best to give minimal attention to the hinges of history swinging…Lilly-livered liberals everywhere got the vapors and reached for smelling salts. Coup, horrible hideous coup, the death of democracy on the Nile they wailed and donned their mourning weeds…Obama did nothing to help the American diplomats under fire. Three of them were gunned down and his ambassador to Libya suffocated as the consulate burned…”

Civil Liberties and the Civil War… “Actually, the Bill of Rights is intended to protect American citizens and American states from the federal government, which was understood to be the greatest threat to civil liberties. After the Civil War, the Supreme Court invented out of whole cloth the “Incorporation Doctrine” by which the Bill of Rights in the Constitution was deemed to apply to states as well as the federal government.”
…..This myth has been so potent that when the Supreme Court ruled this June that the “preclearance” provisions of the Voting Rights Act no longer applied to suspect jurisdiction, which included nearly all of the South, self-anointed “civil rights” leaders warned of great dangers. Even among many conservatives there is the false understanding of the Bill of Rights was intended to protect our liberties from government.

Washington was elected President of the United States of America on April 6, 1789, became President of the United States on April 30, 1789, thereby, joining the head of State with the head of the government and the Commander in Chief of the military. Practically, single handed, George Washington had taken control of the federal government by forming the first democratic dictatorship.

Dear Patriots (Reaching over 2-thousand Thanks to You & thru You- Permission to forward),
Included as well is George Bush the ‘First’s’, first reveal of The New World Order 20 years earlier.
I remember how the Society was excoriated 20 years ago when we reported this (when VIDEO’s were NOT available) and how Washington’s various 5th column lackey’s portrayed us as hacks and a ‘people’ with an over-zealous imagination for the extreme.
Their Lame Street Media had a field day with us for simply telling the Truth and demanding answers to what has become, CLEARLY, a Political Doctrine whose Ideology is anything BUT what America once stood for and represented.
Of course, remaining steadfast to our Confederate Identity allowed them to take even further dalliance with us via the Racist Card providing them with even greater room for distortion & deception resulting from the Revisionist History they had long imposed & built upon over the previous 130 years- To the Victor Always Goes the Spoils of War!

“Government is not reason; it is not eloquent; it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master.”
By Frosty Wooldridge
April 17, 2006
Three years ago, I attended an immigration-overpopulation conference in Washington, DC, filled to capacity by top leaders concerned about the immigration invasion. Colorado Governor Richard D. Lamm, Tom Tancredo, Dr. John Tanton, Dan Stein, Terry Anderson, Bonnie Eggle, Peter Gadiel, Victor Davis Hansen and other speakers walked to the podium.
America still bled from the wounds of 9/11. However, new hemorrhaging in-bled into the United States with Time Magazine report, “Who Left the Door Open?” showing three million illegal aliens crashing our borders annually. “The numbers of illegal aliens flooding into the U.S. annually totals three million—enough to fill 22,000 Boeing 737-700 airliners or 60 flights every day of the year.”
In the last two weeks, Mexico’s invasion of America exhibited new dimensions with millions of illegals openly defying U.S. laws by parading in our streets. Even the façade of Homeland Security illustrates Chertoff and Bush with their pants down around their ankles. In one widely distributed Internet picture, you can see Bush waving a Mexican flag while he walks with a Mexican girl toward school. Any American can see the invasion advances with the Mexican flag raging across the American landscape.
As I said, during the conference, speaker after speaker astounded the audience with facts on how fast the present administration and Congress continue dismantling the American Dream for average citizens. Former Colorado Governor Richard D. Lamm stood up and gave a speech on ‘How to Destroy America’. The audience sat spellbound by the eight methods for destruction of the United States.
If you can see through the lies and seek after truth
Then you fear patriotism is often falsehood out to enslave our youth
To powerful interests who decided to make their Constitution our boss
Voluntarily sovereign states joined the union to be strong and free
But Washington decided they knew best and we would soon see

Was Ron Paul Cheated?, page 1… “Watching this video makes me sad, he was the only candidate running that would have stood up for what it means to be an American and what he got was a complete and utter screwjob. We appear to be on the precipice of a crumbling cliff and if the Republic by some miracle survives the fall he deserves the chance to lead the nation. I fear our nation wil not survive as we know it, God help us all.”
Whether you supported Ron Paul or not, I believe this video is worth watching if for no other reason than the implications that it brings to light.

FEMA clearly is fast becoming the Obama administration’s secret, in-country military operation that is scaring citizens out of their wits. A video narrated by Dale Bohannan has popped up online with photos of what first appear to be porta-potties. But on closer inspection, the black plastic containers are what the narrator reveals to be as many as 125,000 outsized casket liners that are in no way there to service the needs of live American citizens!

Vultures Feast on Purple Heart… “Mark Twain was probably the first who discovered the ugly truth about Congress, which he described as “the smallest minds and the selfishest souls and the cowardliest hearts that God makes.”……” | Veterans Today

While many folks merrily praised St. Valentine for the Day of Love, somewhere in Washington D.C., one taciturn Vietnam War vet paid private tribute to St. Sebastian to put an end to his tortuous ordeal on Feb.14 as the last day of hate.
Alas, as bad luck would have it, the irreconcilable Cruz-aiders have prevailed again as the longest political witch hunt in US history to keep American warrior crucified, will be extended over the next 10 days of Capitol infamy.

Senator Hagel, badly mauled but unrepentant, has yet to persevere and survive the final encounter with the grisly jaws of GOPlins to be anointed as a new Secretary of Defense before the end of the winter.
…..What??? How could they do that? Moreover, WHY would they do that? To explain, let’s look at the circumstances of those days. The Act of 1871 was passed at a vulnerable time in America. Our nation was essentially bankrupt — weakened and financially depleted in the aftermath of the Civil War. The Civil War itself was nothing more than a calculated “front” for some pretty fancy footwork by corporate backroom players. It was a strategic maneuver by European interests (the international bankers) who were intent upon gaining a stranglehold on the neck (and the coffers) of America.
For Sale: Original Iwo Jima MonumentAP/Newser ^ | 02/08/2013Posted on Friday, February 08, 2013 3:17:04 PM by Responsibility2ndAP –
A long-forgotten piece of America’s military history is going up for sale. The original smaller statue of the iconic raising of the US flag at Iwo Jima in 1945 is expected to fetch up to $1.8 million later this month at a New York auction dedicated to World War II artifacts. That such a statue even exists is news to all but the most ardent history buffs.
Most Americans are familiar with Felix de Weldon‘s 1954 bronze version, the 32-foot-tall Marine Corps War Memorial in Arlington, Va. Less well-known is the 12-and-1/2-foot-tall statue created soon after the event.De Weldon, a young sculptor serving as an artist in the Navy, became instantly transfixed by an Associated Press image of the Feb. 19, 1945, flag planting, which would earn photographer Joe Rosenthal a Pulitzer Prize and resonate around the world.
He modeled a wax sculpture of the photo to present to the chiefs of staff, and Congress soon called for construction of a large statue. Completed in just three months, de Weldon’s cast stone monument was erected in Washington, DC, in front of what is now the Federal Reserve Building on Constitution Avenue, and remained there until 1947.
(EXCERPT) ~ Obama pushing American people closer to armed resistance….. (“……Obama has been summarily firing and replacing US Constitution-upholding Generals and Admirals in the US military with those who will, instead, swear their allegiance to Obama and the United Nations group. Note: Multiple source links to these are available in my past columns.”)
……Obama has been summarily firing and replacing US Constitution-upholding Generals and Admirals in the US military with those who will, instead, swear their allegiance to Obama and the United Nations group. Note: Multiple source links to these are available in my past columns.
It strongly appears that Obama may also be creating massacre scenarios, in order to confiscate law-abiding citizens’ legally owned firearms – “never let a crisis go to waste” even if you have to create it? Was the latest the tragedy and horror perpetrated at Sandy Hook? At first – and second – glance I dismissed the information and videos stating that this was all part of the Obama coup to remove our weapons. However, there are so many anomalies, exposed intentionally provided false directions and openly (again…in our faces) faked media footage that it presents us with the necessity of asking questions.
There were many who legitimately lost their children and other loved ones from the madman who slaughtered so many innocent lives. For those people, nothing but God and time can help their real pain. Bur, at least a few of the victims who supposedly lost their children on that horrid day are shown relaxed and smiling just before their “press conferences” when they visibly change their expressions. Note: To date I have not seen these “debunked” (links below) nor even addressed by the debunkers.
That’s got many people wondering: What will she do with them?
Take on a new cause? Travel more? Trace the path of another first lady and keep the Obama political brand alive by running for office?
The answers are to be determined.
The first lady is trying to figure out what comes next for this self-described “mom in chief” who also is a champion of healthier eating, an advocate for military families, a fitness buff and the best-selling author of a book about her White House garden.
A Navy veteran can be barred from owning a gun because of a 1968 misdemeanor conviction over a fistfight, a federal appeals court ruled.
A three-judge panel in Washington upheld a lower-court ruling “which found ‘no constitutional impediment’ to including common-law misdemeanants” within the federal firearms ban. The lower court observed that “the right secured by the Second Amendment is not unlimited,” U.S. Circuit Judge David Tatel wrote in Friday’s opinion.
The federal ban applies to several categories of people, including fugitives, undocumented aliens, those who are judged mentally incompetent or those who have been convicted of felonies or certain kinds of misdemeanors, including ones involving domestic violence.
But let’s stick with the topic of Who Are They Looking For?
TSA is omnipresent. Trains, planes and automobiles. Now railroads and buses. Next it will be dog walkers and model airplanes.
Homeland Security peers through every remote camera and surveillance platform. The federal decision to see and record everything is approaching total coverage. You’re even recorded and surveilled in many national parks.
Who, or what, are they looking for? If Al-Qaeda is now our surrogate shadow-military so the US Department of State can pretend to clean hands, who is all this surveillance for? It looks like Washington has targeted you and me as the mission of surveillance. I mean, if the Al-Qaeda boogey-man is now inside the tent, who is Washington looking for?
Crowds may have flocked to the National Mall to see President Obama make history in 2009, but the team behind the president’s 2013 inauguration bash later this month are bracing themselves for a ton of empty seats. The ceremony that Washington will stage in a few weeks won’t be the historic affair it was in 2009, when nearly 2 million people flocked to the Capitol to watch Obama take the oath of office. This time, District of Columbia officials expect between 600,000 and 800,000 people for Obama’s public swearing-in on the steps of the Capitol on Monday, January 21.

Another Visitation from the Lord – Pastor T.D. Hale Nov. 24th 2012
I was immediately standing in front of the desk in the Oval Office. Standing in the Oval office I was in front of the president. A voice came forth and said, “Weep and howl for the misery that shall come shortly….”
There on the floor of the Oval office was the eagle I saw him shoot back in Dec. He walks from behind that desk with the same smirk I saw on his face and puts his foot on the neck of the eagle. At this point he picks it up by its head and twisted it three times until his head came off from the body.
At that point that voice said, “The spirit of Rehoboam.” I knew what that meant and I knew it rested upon the President.
There are no less than 5 Presidents in the Constitution.
The President Elect has never taken the proper oath to the Office of President.
No President has ever taken an oath to support the written Constitution.
The President elected by the Electors appoints the President of the United States.
George Washington established the precedent of appointing himself to be President of the United States.
Give this segment a devoted listen in order that you may “know thine enemy” and achieve a greater understanding of what is and has been going on around you unseen and unreported on by the mainstream media. You’ll be glad you did.

NATURAL BORN CITIZEN CONTROVERSEY HIDES GOVERNMENT SECRET
December 8, 2008 by edrivera
Several lawsuits have been brought to prove that President Barack Obama is not qualified to be President. The attorneys who have brought these lawsuits have managed only to show how poorly they understand presidential history and how the government actually works.
George Washington was not qualified to fill the Office of President when he was elected on February 4, 1789, because he had not been a resident within the United States for fourteen Years. Washington’s secret solution to the problem was to take the Office of President of the United States because that Office had no requirements or term of office………
The ultimate ass-kissing “political officer,” Dempsey “takes care” of his high-ranking pals while trying to destroy the careers of better men than he. A case in point is LTC Matt Dooley. More on him later on in this story.

A good example of Dempsey’s blatant double standard of justice is his attempt to get his pal, former Africa Command boss, Gen. William “Kip” Ward, out the back door, retired as a full four-star general. This, despite Ward being nailed in a Department of Defense I.G. investigation as having “engaged in multiple forms of misconduct related to official and unofficial travel.”

How Much Did I Accomplish?
In many ways, according to conventional wisdom, my off-and-on career in Congress, from 1976 to 2012, accomplished very little. No named legislation, no named federal buildings or highways—thank goodness. In spite of my efforts, the government has grown exponentially, taxes remain excessive, and the prolific increase of incomprehensible regulations continues. Wars are constant and pursued without Congressional declaration, deficits rise to the sky, poverty is rampant and dependency on the federal government is now worse than any time in our history.
All this with minimal concerns for the deficits and unfunded liabilities that common sense tells us cannot go on much longer. A grand, but never mentioned, bipartisan agreement allows for the well-kept secret that keeps the spending going. One side doesn’t give up one penny on military spending, the other side doesn’t give up one penny on welfare spending, while both sides support the bailouts and subsidies for the banking and corporate elite. And the spending continues as the economy weakens and the downward spiral continues. As the government continues fiddling around, our liberties and our wealth burn in the flames of a foreign policy that makes us less safe.

The shouts of men vied for attention with the metallic whirring of drills and saws ringing in the distance. Nineteen immense cranes spread across the landscape, with the foothills of Italy’s Southern Alps in the background. More than 100 pieces of earthmoving equipment, 250 workers and grids of scaffolding wrapped around what soon would be 34 new buildings.

Despite its own insistence that it is very much alive, the Republican Party has now joined the crowd invisible.
The sad pathetic truth of its demise is that those who once believed in it, and cared deeply for it, are no longer around to bury it with dignity. Its corpse has now become the dancing play thing of Washington D.C. consulting firms and lobbyist.
Because next year’s inauguration falls on a Sunday, President Obama will hold only a small, private swearing-in ceremony on Jan. 20, and will hold a big public redo the next day.
“Adolf Hitler claimed that communists burned down the Reichstag and that Polish troops had crossed the frontier and attacked Germany. With 9/11 americans experienced Washington’s version of these grand lies. An omniscient bin Laden dying from terminal illnesses in distant Afghanistan defeated the American National Security State and drove his attack through the walls of the Pentagon itself, requiring for our defense a “war on terror” that destroyed US civil liberties and financially ruined the country in order to prevent the triumph of a man who died of natural causes in December 2001.” – Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, “The Osama bin LadenMyth.”
The 9/11 controversy has already been settled. Objective, honest, and rational observers from around the world all agree that the official version of the events is a hoax. The governments of the U.S. and Israel were behind the 9/11 atrocities, not Al-Qaeda.
Ron Paul has been a Congressman from Texas for 20 years. He has been running for President as a Republican. The Republican establishment despises him because he has been against the Iraq invasion from the beginning.
In June of 1976, I was Ron Paul‘s speechwriter. Shortly after I joined his staff as his newsletter writer and economic analyst, I recommended that he do what I had been doing for a year: buy a Code-A-Phone telephone answering machine and make a weekly 3-minute recording for people in his districts to call.
He could send the tape to his office in the district, where the machine would be set up at a local phone number. Residents could call it for free. He thought this was a good idea. So began his weekly speeches.

Ron Paul: It’s now officially too late to avert disaster
From Inside Politics:
Rep. Ron Paul, whose maverick presidential bids shook the GOP, said in the wake of this week’s elections that the country has already veered over the fiscal cliff and he sees no chance of righting ship in a country where too many people are dependent on government.
“We’re so far gone. We’re over the cliff,” the Texas Republican told Bloomberg Television‘s “In the Loop” program. “We cannot get enough people in Congress in the next five-10 years who will do wise things.”
Just watched FOX & Friends and Col Allen West was on live and stated that he will no longer fight for the FL D18 seat. (paraphrasing) He stated that even though they found problems with the way the vote count was handled he said it is not about him but is about what is best for the people of FL D18 so he conceds the seat to Pat Murphy.
