Obama’s Destruction~°•○●□☆~

The Russell 3000 Index

There are 11 companies in the broad Russell 3000 index, including a plethora of energy companies like Apache, General Electric (GE) and Internet giant, Yahoo, that have reported catastrophic net losses in the just completed calendar year, according to a USA TODAY analysis of data from S&P Global Market Intelligence. And if we think this collapse is going to have distinct boundaries on who, and who is not impacted, think again. GE owns ABC which in turn owns the ESPN’s… and on and on it goes. These ripples are quickly turning into tidal waves.

 

 

The news is so bad that the retail sector is looking for silver linings where it can find them:

Every single on of these corporations reported net losses of $4 billion in 2015. By comparison, Sears is looking like a winner because they only lost $1 billion 

And this is supposed to be the good news?

The Backbone of American Retailers Are Taking a Beating

I watched in absolute horror as Fox News reported that Kohl, the darling of the retail outlets, was closing 18 stores this year. Kohls is one of the poster children for American economic, post-2008 recovery and they are losing their backside.

In a very impressive compilation of economic data, Michael Snyder  assembled data on the following retailers and the message is uniform and disheartening:

“Target has just finished closing 13 stores in the United States.

Best Buy closed 30 stores last year, and it says that more store closings are likely in the months to come.

Office Depot plans to close a total of 400 stores by the end of 2016.

Wal-Mart is closing 269 stores, including 154 inside the United States…”

“K-Mart is closing down more than two dozen stores over the next several months.

J.C. Penney will be permanently shutting down 47 more stores after closing a total of 40 stores in 2015.

Macy’s has decided that it needs to shutter 36 stores…

The Gap is in the process of closing 175 stores in North America.

Aeropostale is in the process of closing 84 stores all across America…”

This is only a cross-sectional view of the economy. Consider what CNN/Money is saying:

“Investors yanked $2.9 billion from U.S. stocks last week, marking the seventh week of outflows out of the past eight, according to Bank of America Merrill Lynch. Emerging markets, which have been in turmoil for months, experienced a 13th straight week of outflows of $1.2 billion.

Money is fleeing to safe haven government bonds. For instance, municipal bonds have enjoyed 19 straight weeks of inflows, BofA said”.

In other words, investors are taking their money away from the actual corporations that need the economic support through the Stock Market, and are giving the money to government savings accounts that are actually managed by Obama’s minions. Talk about jumping from the fire into the frying pan.

Conclusion

There is no escaping this carnage. The only option to at least slow down this train wreck, is to start a war. And this isprecisely what we are witnessing with the phony peace talks regarding Syria. In a future article, I will expose the Kerry/Obama agenda with regard to the coming fake cease fire which will nothing but a thinly veiled effort to try to get Russia to lower its guard before their forces are attacked.

The only option left for the average American  is adaptation. The deck chairs of the Titanic are being rearranged. Will you reach the lifeboats? What do you need to do to survive the present economic holocaust? This topic is subject for another day. Suffice it to say that every America should store two years of food for each family member, convert their soon to be worthless cash to gold and silver, horde medicines, obtain and learn how to use guns for the purpose of self-defense, form alliances with neighbors and keep a copy of the Bible nearby.

~Russia will employ what is commonly referred to as the scissors strategy to conquer America~

February 20, 2016
By Dave Hodges

Russia will employ what is commonly referred to as the scissors strategy to conquer America.

image

However, the original strategy, first revealed by Russian defectors has been greatly expanded.

First, the head of the American military snake must have its head cut off. This is why Obama has left the bulk of our ground forces in Afghanistan. It is a death trap and these troops will not get home. This will be followed by Russia coming out of Ukraine and tying up NATO.

When World War III begins, my sources believe that Syria will serve as a deception and the Russians will employ a Sun Tzu strategy by drawing some US forces to Syria and then focus their attack in Afghanistan where the bulk of the US ground troops are stationed. They will be hopefully outnumbered and Obama and Russians will have neutralized the backbone of our ground forces.

The Scissors Strategy

In part two of this series, covered the disabling of Alaskan defenses and the buildup of Russian troops on the border and in Alaska was presented along with the presence of Russian “Fifth Column” forces. It is difficult to imagine that when American soldiers pursue our self-created boogey man, ISIS, into Syria, that Russia will not immediately retaliate by attacking Alaska. My deep background sources have concluded the Battle for Alaska will be over in hours/days as Russian forces will cut through Alaska, with the help of prepositioned assets, like a hot knife through butter. Within just a few short days, British Columbia, Washington, Montana and Oregon will be imperiled.

The Southeastern Front: Cuba and the Rebirth of the Cuban Missile Crisis

image

Pravda quotes Putin as stating that Russia had obtained the consent of the Cuban leadership to place “the latest mobile strategic nuclear missiles on the Island…”  Recently, the Russians surprisingly docked a Russian spy ship in Havana. This is the Cuban Missile Crisis revisited! My sources are adamant that Cuba is being militarized by Russia as I write these words. Cuba, along with deployed Russian troops and troops “borrowed from fellow Latin American countries will form the center of the invading Army from the Southeast along with the support of the Russian Navy and Air Force.

Embedded Chinese Soldiers in West Coast Ports

image

Since 1997, Chinese officials have bribed and bought off senior American government officials, particularly in the Clinton administration.

Part of the bribes included the selling of Long Beach port to the Chinese along with the loss of nearly 18,000 American jobs. Multiple military sources around the country have quietly warned about the growing menace posed by the buildup of Chinese Communist forces in many of our California ports now controlled by the Chinese.

The Bundy/BLM affair was also symbolic of this buildup. The solar energy deals that were put into place by Senator Harry Reid were done in conjunction with Chinese energy companies run by the Chinese military. All personnel manning these planned plants would be affiliated with the Chinese military. This includes the inland ports (e.g. Kansas City) which are controlled by the Chinese courtesy of the treasonous trade agreement we call NAFTA.

The Fifth Column

The Fifth Column, designed to sabotage critical infrastructure and carry out key assassinations of resistance figures in the media as well as uncooperative politicians, was mostly put into place last summer during the “immigration crisis” which was used as a cover to embed these forces inside of the U.S.

Not Gangsters but Terrorists Armed with WMD’s

There is incontrovertible evidence that criminal drug cartels, like Los Zetas, have not only used MS-13 gangsters as hit men and child sex traffickers, but so has the Juarez Cartel and the Barrio Azteca to enforce their will, but Los Zetas have also conducted training in parts of Central and South America, and have even allowed MS-13 gangsters to lead in operations as when “El Comandante Kilo” operated in San Fernando on behalf of Los Zetas. This training consists of two parts, military training and assassination (i.e. future Red List applications). In plain corporate language, the Mexican drug cartels are outsourcing paramilitary activities such as assassinations and terrorism.

OBAMA TO SKIP SCALIA’S FUNERAL

OBAMA TO SKIP SCALIA’S FUNERAL

February 18, 2016
by Dave Hodges

image

President Barack Obama will not attend the funeral of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, the White House confirmed Wednesday.

According to press secretary Josh Earnest, the president and first lady Michelle Obama will instead “pay their respects” on Friday during a visit to the Supreme Court.

“The president will pay his respects at the Supreme Court on Friday and he’ll be joined with the first lady when he does that,” he said.

Alternatively, Earnest stated that Vice President Joe Biden and his wife would attend the Saturday service at the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C.

“I can tell you that Vice President Biden and Dr. Jill Biden will attend Justice Scalia’s funeral at the Basilica on Saturday,” he added.

As noted by Politico, “The last time a justice died was Chief Justice William Rehnquist in 2005, and at that time President George W. Bush not only attended the funeral but also eulogized him.”

Despite repeated attempts by the press to find out Obama’s plans Saturday, Earnest both refused to provide specific details and answer questions regarding whether or not the president would be using the time to golf instead.

image

“I don’t have a sense of what the president’s plans are for Saturday,” Earnest said.

Obama’s Newest Victims In Police State America

Obama’s Newest Victims In Police State America

By Dave Hodges
February 17, 2016

image

1984 has arrived complete withe police state surveillance, mayhem and murder. America is well on its way to becoming the most prolific police state in all of history. Here are some examples of the handiwork of police state tactics.

image

They blow up buildings, kill thousands to achieve political objectives

image

image

image

Now, the protection rackets of Obama’s American Police State has an additional target. It is your child who is attending college. Bad Boys, Bad Boys, Whatcha Gonna Do When They Come For You?

image

In America, Warren Buffet and Goldman Sachs don’t pay taxes. Yet, well armed swat teams, from the Department of Education, now kick in doors and mug student loan defaulters and terrorize their young children.

Kenneth Wright, from Stockton, CA., was grabbed by the neck, and drug out on his front lawn before being handcuffed as his three young children were put in a police car as the officers searched his house. Wright was in his underwear and amazingly, the warrant for his estranged wife, not him, and she was not home at the time of the raid. and today, when Obama’s domestic terrorists show up at your door, they can  brutalize someone even if the subject of the warrant is not home.

Acting on behalf of the Department of Education, the swat team damaged the house and have refused to properly repair the damage. Wright was held for over six hours before federal officials released him.

The federal government has an extreme motivation to engage in predatory student lending for college tuition. The government is charging exorbitant interest, on a balance of $1 trillion dollars and for this kind of money, they will break your door down and terrorize you and your family. This is life in a police state

Very soon, perhaps, we will be reading that the Department of Education has purchased 2.2 billion rounds of ammunition as well as 2700 armored personnel carriers as we have seen with the DHS.

The U.S. Department of Education “Mafia Protection Racket” Terror Tactics~

image

According to the Wall Street Journal,71% of all college graduates have an average student loan debt of $35,000. Paul Aker, the man pictured below, found out what happens to those who don’t pay back their college student loans. Their tax refunds are not seized, they do not receive a letter threatening action against their bank account, instead, they have automatic weapons pointed at them as they are physically brutalized by America’s newest addition to the United States government police state, the Department of Education.

image

Aker told the NY Daily News that he was caught by surprise by the heavily armed agents that showed up at his home to arrest him for failing to pay a nearly 30 year-old college student loan debt totaling $1,500. The agents, armed with machine guns, roughed up this educational loan terrorist as they brutally threw Aker to the ground as they initially refused to tell him why they had broken into his house.

image

Aker told Fox News 26 that he has been ordered to pay $5,700 for the loan, including interest. However, Aker was also ordered to pay for the cost of the morning arrest which is almost $1,300, plos interest on the student loan. If he didn’t pay that amount by March 1, he said, he was told he would be arrested again. This is like the old English debtors prison in which you don’t get out of prison until you pay off your debt, but the interest outstrips most income levels in an effort to keep up with the debt.

When will the first college student be murdered by the goon squads sent out to collect on predatory student loans?

                      Conclusion

The brown-shirted domestic terrorists of the Obama administration will soon be leaving another trail of bodies over such issues as gun confiscation, free speech rights and religious freedom. Congress is lost, the presidency is lost and now with the death of Scalia, the Supreme Court is lost. Where are Americans to turn? We are playing in a game with no rules.

One has to wonder how far will the sheep allow themselves to be pushed, before pushing back?

The Motive Behind the Murder of Justice Scalia

The Motive Behind the Murder of Justice Scalia

February 16,2016
by Dave Hodges

image

I was a day late and a dollar short in terms of my timing in weighing in on the death of Supreme Court Justice Scalia. On the first day following his death, I just did not feel that there was enough evidence to fall in line with many others who were calling this a murder as opposed to death of natural causes. At least that is how I felt until I discovered that Scalia did not have an autopsy and his body was cremated.

At the end of the day, I will not be a day late on the motive behind the murder of a Supreme Court Justice. Once the facts supporting that there should have been a murder investigation complete with a full autopsy, I immediately knew the motive because I had extensively written about this over several years ago.

An Investigation Should Be Held on the Death of Any Senior Government Official- It Only Makes Sense

A senior government official, a Supreme Court Justice, is dead. And how is it being treated?

The body and subsequent investigation into the death of Justice Scalia has been handled with all the professionalism of putting a rabid dog to sleep. Despite being found by John Poindexter, dead on his bed, with a pillow over his head, there will no investigation.

A Judge Who Thinks They Are Really a Doctor

Under these circumstances, how could an autopsy not be performed on a senior government official?

And to add insult to injury, Scalia’s body was moved to Sunset Funeral Homes and was promptly cremated.
But the body was not cremated until Judge Guevara determined that Scalia died of heart attack.

Did I say Judge Guevara, or Dr. Guevera….
And Guevera, a judge, determined that Scalia died as a result of a heart attack, without an autopsy, and a doctor present, or an RN in attendance……

Originally, Scalia did meet up with his would-be hunting companions. When found by Poindexter, Scalia was still in his daytime clothes from the night before. Shouldn’t Supreme Court Justices have bodyguards?

Hmmmmmm.

image

Against All of His Personal Beliefs, Scalia Was Cremated…

Suspicious yet?

One of the most amazing facts surrounding this “mystery death” is that Scalia’s body was cremated before an autopsy could be performed.

Cremated? Wasn’t Scalia a Catholic? The last time I heard, Catholics do not sanction cremations.
The regulations against cremation is one of the strongest within the Catholic Church.However, criminals with something to hide frequently burn the body after the commission of a crime.

This fact, alone, should have triggered a major murder investigation. Where is Attorney General, Loretta Lynch, when she is needed the most?
Did Obama send flowers to the widow yet?

Charred bodies yield no autopsy clues.

Scalia’s Death Marks the End of the Constitution As We Know It.

Scalia was the Supreme Court’s staunchest opponent to the progressive agenda. He demolished last summer’s gay marriage ruling in a scathing 9-page scathing report authored by Scalia.

With Scalia out of the way,  limits on free speech will be restored; “the Supreme Court will render the Second Amendment meaningless by reinterpreting the right to bear arms as a non-personal right; freedom of religion will be made subservient to same-sex marriage and abortion priorities; the death penalty will be ruled unconstitutional; unions will be allowed to continue confiscating the dollars of people who disagree with them politically.” However, these are not the reasons that Scalia was murdered.

image

The Real Reason That Scalia Was Murdered:

Like it or not, I completely agree with Michael Savage that Scalia was likely murdered.

“We had a razor-thin savior of the conservative, or, shall I say traditional, ways in America, Antonin Scalia, who was found dead under suspicious circumstances,” he said. “And now this character in the White House who nobody with a rational mind should trust is trying to railroad Loretta Lynch down our throats … as his number one choice. Can you believe this?”

Obama was put into office for one reason and one reason only. He was put into office to end capitalism, private property ownership and the individual’s right to self-determination.

This is all accomplished through Agenda 21 and ultimately what Patrick Wood calls technocracy. Technocracy is the take over of all energy use, thus, ultimately, all finance, through programs such as capping CO2 emission, Cap and Trade, etc.  Carbon credits, under this system is destined to become the new currency.

When Obama was first elected, he attempted to introduce legislation into the Senate which would have reduced energy output for the United States by 80%. Even the then liberal Senate promptly rejected his proposal. That defeat set Obama into another strategy of implementation, it would have to happen piecemeal and some of the change would have to be implemented at the local level (eg California’s Cap and Trade program). However, the change for this President’s ego did not come fast enough because we are in the final year of Obama’s presidency and he has not completed his main task and HIS ENTIRE CLIMATE CHANGE INITIATIVE WAS REJECTED BY THE CONSERVATIVE MEMBERS OF THE SUPREME COURT BY A 5-4 DEFEAT!!! Scalia was the main opponent. 

This defeat of Obama’s entire climate change initiative should not be overlooked as it puts the United States in direct collision course with the United Nations’ recent COP 21 agreements in Paris, which was blocked in a 5-4 vote by the Supreme Court, only last week. Again, Justice Scalia was the main opponent. This fact alone should have provided the impetus to conduct an INDEPENDENT autopsy on Scalia’s body.

But as they say in the infomercials, there’s more….

Following the Gulf oil explosion in 2010, I wrote a seven part series entitled The Great Gulf Coast Holocaust. It was in that series that I discovered the unmistakable reason that Obama was made president.

Obama (when he was still a State Senator in Illinois), Valerie Jarrett and Al Gore headed a group known as the Joyce Foundation.

The Joyce Foundation was designed to promote acceptance for carbon trading schemes which could be linked back to George Soros and Al Gore. The intent, as I have previously mentioned was to gain control over the entire economy.

The Joyce Foundation eventually set up the Chicago Climate Exchange which was nation’s first bona fide carbon trading company. When Obama’s original carbon trading scheme was rejected in the Senate in 2009, the organization collapsed financially. But Obama’s dream of technocracy did not die with it.

The Joyce Foundation was also instrumental in bringing together NALCO, Goldman Sachs and the EPA in allowing the oil dispersant, Corexit, to be used in the Gulf even though, for health reasons, it had been banned by virtually the entire G20 nations. The conspiracy trail is mighty when it comes to Obama and his pre-presidential years and his complicity into the climate change issue. It was when Obama first became involved in the Joyce Foundation that George Soros, David Rockefeller and company backed this relative unknown for President. By the way, the late Bob Chapman and I both covered how Obama benefited from the use of Corexit through his Vanguard Investment funds (I and II). The link to this claim is listed above.

After I read volumes of material on the Joyce Foundation, it was easy to conclude that Obama was chosen to be President because he would virtually hand over the entire economy to a few wealthy bankers under the guise of climate change. The historical parallel matches why the banksters in 1912 backed Woodrow Wilson for President. The following year, the nation’s banking system was handed over the Rockefellers and their merry gang of banksters and the rest is history.

Conclusion

Scalia was the major impediment to Obama completing his legacy of ushering in technocracy. This, alone, is motive for murder. And when an autopsy is not conducted on a Supreme Court Justice, and  his “Catholic” and his body was cremated, we should all be more than suspicious…

The Rape of Nanking Will Become the Rape of America

The Rape of Nanking Will Become the Rape of America

February 13, 2016
by Dave Hodges

image

The phrase “The Rape of Nanking” has special significance in world history as it relates to the genocidal treatment of a conquering army and the utter devastation that it can bring to a civilian population. If you are unfamiliar with this historical event, you may wish to review these tragic eventsin order to see why so many are concerned about our immediate future as a nation. After familiarizing oneself with this tragic event, most of us will take an entirely new and sober view of the existence of Russian troops on American soil and the dangers we all face as a result.

Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction

There can be no doubt that the two Hunger Games movies,Hunger Games and Catching Fire, strongly represent the principles of the Agenda 21 beast which is overtaking our country. So too, the hot new movie in Hollywood, Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, eerily parallels real life as a young covert CIA analyst, uncovers a Russian plot to crash the U.S. economy with a false flag terrorist attack. I do, however, want to make one distinction, the coming Russian-led takedown of this country is not a case of Russia vs. America. Rather, Putin and Obama are working for the same side. It is the side that JFK called the “Gnomes of Zurich”. I call them the “Bastards from Basel”.

Upon his many appearances on my show, Pastor Lindsay Williams has often stated that it is an unwritten rule that the globalists must somehow publicly declare their intentions prior to executing a plan which could result in a massive loss of life. It is very possible that this movie, based upon the late Tom Clancy’s final novel, is the manifestation of this dictate. Further, Clancy died under very mysterious circumstances. Did he get too close to the truth regarding the Russians and a possible false flag event? Andrew Breitbart, Michael Hastings and Tom Clancy, all were writers who got too close to the truth and paid the ultimate price for their journalistic trespasses.

Prima Fascia Evidence

There are three groups of people who are not in the George Carlin declared “Club”. The first group consists of people who are fully awake and are calling attention to the dangers being posed by the criminal enterprise that we call the Obama administration. The second group are Americans who understand that something is desperately wrong but are unclear as to the details. The third and final group are the sheep and no amount of proof of global elite mischief would convince them that the artificially created world of CNN is not true and that the terrorists truly do “hate us for our freedoms”. This third group could have pictures of Russian military officers, in bed, sleeping with their wives and they would still deny that there are Russian soldiers on American soil.

I have previously presented prima fascia evidence that this administration is in bed with the Russians by revealing the public existence of government documents such as the  “U.S.-Russia Bilateral Presidential Commission Working Group on Emergency Situations” as well identifying the fact that this agreement called for the importation of at least 15,000 Russian soldiers to train with FEMA for disaster preparedness. Ray Charles could have seen that this agreement was a smokescreen for more nefarious Russian military activity on American soil. For example, since when does America need 15,000 Russian troops to replace the National Guard with regard to a disaster response? Why would it be necessary to bring in Russian troops for some “disaster planning” all the way from Russia for some undefined emergency? And, as I have reported before, why is DHS taking control of the various state run National Guard units? This activity is a massive, well-coordinated extra-governmental organization, formed under the Obama administration which represents only one of almost two dozen similar “working groups” bringing together top U.S. and Russian officials for the purpose of creating a massive false flag operation. In a quick recap, my last article identified the existence of government documents from this bilateral agreement in which it is stated that FEMA and the Russian military are cooperating on a number of fronts including the enforcement of the “rule of law”  according to previously referenced U.S. State Department documents. Enforcing the rule of law can only mean one thing: Russians and FEMA personnel, under the auspices of DHS will be enforcing the coming martial law. In the previous article, visual proof of the existence of Russian troops training in DHS vehicles was provided. Obama does not need Russian soldiers to write parking tickets. They are here to enforce martial law. Add this to the existence of the previously mentioned government documents, and you have an occupation force and it is going to represent the blue helmets of the UN, but it will be decidedly Russian. When the doors, at 3AM, across this country, get knocked down and the thugs in uniform pull you and your family out of your homes, they will be primarily Russian. The proof is there for all to see, at least for those that want to see it.

Conclusion
If we in the independent media are unable to wake up a significant portion of this country as to the intentions of Russian troops on our soil, we will see the modern day version of the “Rape of Nanking” being visited upon American citizens and all the signs point to the fact that we do not have much time to prepare. Since publishing yesterday’s article, I have received a half dozen emails detailing eyewitness accounts of Russian soldiers in Gatlinburg, TN., Colorado Springs, CO, Ventura, CA., and Ketchikan, AK. Not only are there Russian troops on American soil, there are legitimate and demonstrable, long-standing military reasons which would prompt Russia to engage in a military takeover of the United States. However, please keep in mind that this takeover is being orchestrated by the bankers. Putin and Obama work for the same bosses.

The Department Of Justice Prepares To Step Up War On Domestic Extremists

The Department Of Justice Prepares To Step Up War On Domestic Extremists

February 13,2016
by Dave Hodges

image

Senior officials with the U.S. Department of Justice recently announced possible legal changes which could allow the government greater room to combat so-called “anti-government extremists”. 

On Thursday February 4, Reuters reported that John Carlin, the Justice Department’s chief of national security, and federal prosecutors are looking for new tools to deal with the rise of “domestic extremists.”

“Based on recent reports and the cases we are seeing, it seems like we’re in a heightened environment,” Carlin told Reuters. Reuters notes that the U.S. government is facing an increase in opposition from militia groups, “sovereign citizens,” and other “anti-government extremists.”

However, federal officials like Carlin claim they are impeded in their pursuit of violent domestic terrorists because, although there is currently a U.S. law that prohibits “material” support of internationally recognized terror groups, there is not such a law for domestic groups. Reuters reports:

Carlin and other Justice Department officials declined to say if they would ask Congress for a comparable domestic extremist statute, or comment on what other changes they might pursue to toughen the fight against anti-government extremists.

The U.S. State Department designates international terrorist organizations to which it is illegal to provide “material support.” No domestic groups have that designation, helping to create a disparity in charges faced by international extremist suspects compared to domestic ones.

Carlin told Reuters that his counter-terrorism team is taking a “thoughtful look at the nature and scope of the domestic terrorism threat” and looking for “potential legal improvements and enhancements to better combat those threats.” The Justice Department will identify cases being prosecuted at the state level that “could arguably meet the federal definition of domestic terrorism.”

Carlin and his team are not only remaining quiet about whether or not they are pursuing the legal changes but the entire team has not been revealed to the public. This means we have an unelected, secret team of people working on identifying which Americans should be deemed “domestic extremists.”

Will Freedom Activists be Targeted?

Carlin’s silence should alarm all activists who consider themselves opposed to the policies of the U.S. government. Not only are those who espouse anti-government or pro-freedom rhetoric likely to be targeted but the penalty for being a part of such a group, or supporting such a group could eventually mean years in prison. Current laws allow for a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison for Americans who support groups on the State Department list of designated terrorist organizations.

Under a 1994 law federal prosecutors could attempt to bring “material support” terrorism charges against people who are linked to groups not on the State Department’s list but this has only happened twice since the law was enacted. If the Justice Department creates a list of groups that are deemed extremist or terrorist this could lead to stifling of free speech and expression.

Part of the problem is the broad definition of “extremism” itself. As far as the pursuit and defense against “extremism” is concerned, the United States government has failed to adequately define the term, and by doing so, is allowing for perfectly legal behavior to become taboo or even criminalized. In June 2014, TruthInMedia’s Jay Syrmopouloswrote about this trend:

First there was the MIAC report, which claimed that potential terrorists include people who own gold, Ron Paul supporters, libertarians, and even people who fly the U.S. flag.

Then in 2012, there was a leaked Homeland Security studythat claimed Americans who are ‘reverent of individual liberty,’ and ‘suspicious of centralized federal authority’ are possible ‘extreme right-wing’ terrorists.

More recently, there is a Department of Defense training manual, obtained by Judicial Watch via a FOIA request, that lists people who embrace “individual liberties” and honor “states’ rights,” among other characteristics, as potential “extremists” who are likely to be members of “hate groups.”

This document goes on to call the Founding Fathers extremists, stating, “In U.S. history, there are many examples of extremist ideologies and movements,“ including “[t]he colonists who sought to free themselves from British rule.”

If the United States government cannot clearly define who it is targeting in its war on extremism how are the people supposed to trust that these programs will not simply be used to target outspoken activists and critics of the government?

A Domestic War on “Extremism”

[What about domestic war on Muslim terrorism?]D.B.

These possible legal changes are only the latest effort to combat “extremism” by the Justice Department. In October 2015 Anti Media reported that the United Nations and the Department of Justice announced the creation of a new program designed to help local communities combat “violent extremism.” Called the Strong Cities Network (SCN), the plan calls for “systematic efforts” to “share experiences, pool resources and build a community of cities to inspire local action on a global scale.”
U.S. Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch said, “The Strong Cities Network will serve as a vital tool to strengthen capacity-building and improve collaboration,”and will “enable cities to learn from one another, to develop best practices and to build social cohesion and community resilience here at home and around the world.”

“To counter violent extremism we need determined action at all levels of governance,” said Governing Mayor Stian Berger Røsland of Oslo. “To succeed, we must coordinate our efforts and cooperate across borders.”

The creation of the Smart Cities Network comes after the Justice Department announced it would revive a task force on domestic terrorism in an attempt to stop violence within the United States. In June 2014, former Attorney General Eric Holder stated the Domestic Terrorism Executive Committee would work to eliminate dangers from violent individuals who may be motivated by anti-government or racist views. The Federal Bureau of Investigation, the National Security Division of the Justice Department, and the Attorney General’s Advisory Committee are in charge of the efforts. The committee was originally launched to focus on right-wing extremism in the aftermath of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing.

As Americans slowly awaken to the truth of the American Empire, the powers that wish they were are scrambling to tighten their control grid. If the American public will not be subdued and distracted by elections or deadstream media bread and circuses, the Ruling Class will have to resort to more direct methods of stifling freedom. This presents the perfect opportunity for those living amongst the zombies toorganize and strategize for solutions that do not rely on government or their corporate partners.
