A true game of shadows

I wrote the first draft of this article nearly six months ago. A lot has happened since, but the information is still relevant.

The war propaganda is being propped up now against Iran and Syria. But what is it really all about?

Like the latest blockbuster, we are currently encountering a real game of shadows.

The first world war in particular was a set up to create a bloodbath to be profited from.

During the Sherlock Holmes movie the bad guy ‘Professor Moriarty’ is the one who stands to profit from the bloodbath.

Nations typically do not thrive on war…at least not for long. Wars are costly, and are fought by the best of the nation’s men. Instead of being put to work inventing new products, they are sacrificed on the battlefield.

During the Iraq war, Dick Cheney’s company, Halliburton’s stock doubled. The nation’s debt doubled, and thousands of our young men died.

There is no agenda for Iraqi’s freedom.

Operation Iraqi Freedom, was originally penned as Operation Iraqi Liberation, but it became too obvious what the true reason was for invading, when the designers realized that the initials for the operation spelled out OIL.

People such as Bill O’Reilly are simply shills for agendas, and even ignore those who have been in the theater of conflict. The same can be said about many news commentators on the left also. I use O’Reilly as an example because it shows the absurdity of ‘journalism’ now facing this country, which I have explained in the past is simply now propaganda for different pressure groups.

The Iraqis did not gain anything from this naked war of aggression. A limited number of corrupt Americans made money from the oil we ‘liberated’ from them. They did not ask us to ‘liberate’ them, and conditions in Iraq today are far worse than they were under Saddam Hussein. It is said that under Saddam, some Iraqis had problems, but now, every Iraqi has problems. They have no more freedom today than they did under Saddam. If they had truly wanted ‘liberty’, they would have sought it out themselves. Instead, they now have far fewer jobs, their infrastructure is smashed, and hundreds of thousands of them have died since the occupation of the country by US and international forces.

We have nothing to gain from the wars in the middle east. Watch out for the people behind the scenes, and those who profit from the carnage. They are the real villains, not those in the opposing country.

We already know about the liberal media, but what about the conservative media? I have used a couple of clips of Bill O’Reilly who is ‘the number one name in news’, and yet you see him time and again, tearing into veterans of the war and victims of 9/11, because they are against his agenda of promoting the war. Now I don’t know what he has to gain from this, except perhaps ratings, but its obvious from his anger that he is trying to divert our attention away from the real issues, and good solid logical arguments against naked wars of aggression, no matter what the instigator.

Glenn Beck is fishy also. He spends a lot of time going to extremes to link up different people in his theories, and yet, when presented with data which is obviously suspicious, he often ignores it.

I have explained in previous articles that the mainstream media is no good, and only serves as propaganda. I know that it is tempting to watch one news channel over another because it sounds better, but it’s all utter garbage to distract you from the bigger issues at steak. Trust no one in the mainstream news, always do your own research.

There is a true game of shadows going on in the world right now. There is a strong march toward totalitarianism in this country, and there are very few in Washington who are standing up against it.  Do we honestly believe that this well oiled machine built off blood for profit will stop off its own accord? The only way to stop it is to do your own research and expose the liars and cheats for what they are, before we all ultimately pay the price for their blood games.

Thoughts on the 2012 election and the future

I have mixed feelings about the 2012 election. I did not vote for Mitt Romney, but I also did not want Obama to win. I did everything I could to strengthen the liberty movement, and to help the libertarians to offset the corruption of the republican party. I voted for Gary Johnson for president to give the libertarians a cutting edge to build from, but I also voted for many republicans in house and senate seats to overthrow the diluted democrats, who simply do not get it.

I thought Mitt Romney was a progressive and that being elected as president would allow him to sweep our efforts under the rug because he is a conservative, if only in name. Perhaps he would have improved the economy slightly, and bumbled it along a little longer, but I think he also would have started a massive war with Iran, and he would have done nothing for our civil liberties. But all that aside, I know many of you worked hard to get him elected simply because he was the only person with enough power to beat Obama, who has turned out to be a terrible president, and a detriment to our freedoms and our way of life.

I would like to apologize to those who I have upset or offended during the course of this election period. I set out to get Ron Paul elected through the primaries. A man who I thought could actually change things for the better. Sadly he was shunned like a piece of garbage by the crooked establishment and the bought and paid for media. Ron Paul is one of the very few people who still shine as a beacon of hope in a wasteland of empty promises. But what’s done is done, and now we have to move forward. The points that I made over the course of the last few months, particularly against Mitt Romney and the establishment were to prove how corrupt they are and to illustrate just how far gone our republic is that he could ever possibly be our best chance to preserve freedom.

The republicans and the democrats are exceedingly corrupt, and we must continue to throw out the incumbents who do not follow the constitution, and install people who will actually do their jobs the way they are supposed to.

I will continue to point out faults in both parties, but I am willing to work with both the libertarians and the conservatives to find common ground so that we can create a bulwark against the tidal wave which is coming in the form of massive debt, the dollar collapse, and the erosion of civil liberties. Barack Obama’s policies are a detriment to our liberties, and we must stop the attack from both sides of the isle.

I would like to extend my thanks to those of you who worked on the side of liberty, whether we agreed on our methods or not, I know you did what you felt was right, and I did the same. Now is not the time to point fingers, but to find common ground and focus on our strengths so that we can build a future. I think every reader on here will agree on free markets, civil liberties and the protection of the constitution. I think also that by far the biggest issue of the day is the national debt, and we must work to plug the dam immediately if we are to avert a complete currency collapse.

I am willing to work with those of you who believe in individual liberties, and who are working hard to preserve them. I will continue to write articles to expose the looters, and combat the corrupt. I will continue to offer solutions  and to explain my theories along with information that I have found along the way.

Though the storm clouds are gathering, and our greatest challenge is fast approaching, I know that we will prevail. The liberty movement is just getting started!

World War III looms

It appears that World War III is fast approaching.

I’ve already written about how a WWIII scenario might play out.

There are many reasons why WWIII may be imminent; including tensions throughout the world, and multiple countries constant saber rattling.

We now have tensions between Japan and China over an island dispute. There is now a real threat of conflict between these two nations. Our own defense secretary has said that a threat of war now exists.

There are reports of food shortages and oil shortages throughout the globe.

Our countries freedoms have been stripped away through bills such as the patriot act and NDAA, and the country is split and divided.

We are seeing massive blowback in the middle east from our failed foreign policies. Which is little wonder when so many innocent people are being killed on a daily basis.

There are uprisings all over the middle east, and Syria is currently in turmoil.

The dollar is on the decline, and our government on both sides of the isle show no signs of slowing down the rate of debt.

There is a huge buildup of forces in the gulf, tensions continue to grow, and Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netenyahu is hell bent on starting a war with Iran.

When you look at all the facts, from the imminent collapse of the dollar, the wars in the middle east and the internal rift at home, there are only two options left to move forward from. We can either completely withdraw our forces from the middle east and fix our policies at home, or we can commit to a full scale war in the middle east, which could lead to a global war; a war which even if nuclear missiles are not used, we might not win.

The Russians have  a new missile that would wreak havoc on our ships and decimate our naval strength if used against us in the middle east. Iran owns thousands of these missiles, and is prepared to use them in retaliation against us if we attack them.

But why would we want to attack this peaceful country? Iran has not initiated a war in over 200 years. Why do we see the need to bomb them? Especially when there are no proven nuclear weapons there.

Isn’t Israel more of a threat to peace in the middle east? After all, they are the only Middle-Eastern country which possess nuclear weapons, and they routinely threaten their neighbors.

Should we go along with Benjamin Netanyahu’s demands and attack Iran? This same man who has for years threatened that Iran was only years/months away from a bomb, without ever having proof. And was quoted in 2002 as saying; “Once we squeeze all we can out of the United States, it can dry up and blow away.”

Why do we listen to Israel in the first place? All of these Muslim Brotherhood uprisings are caused from our interference in foreign countries affairs.

The claim that the Muslims hate Christians is completely unfounded. If it were true, then why doesn’t Al-Qaeda attack other christian nations? Why have they never attacked a country in South America; which is almost all Catholic?

Why does Israel always get positive coverage in the media, while we are led to believe all Muslims are evil? Is it because as Ariel Sharon once said “we, the Jewish people control America, and the Americans know it”?

I believe that the extremist Zionists are far more of a threat to this world than the Muslim extremists. From what I have researched and found out, the Muslims only want to be left alone in peace, whereas the Zionists appear to crave world domination.

This country is entering a debt spiral and the best candidate to go up against our ‘Muslim Marxist’ president is an Israeli sponsored vulture capitalist with an abysmal record on governing and job creation, and doesn’t appear to be much different. The two parties act like gangs, and are more interested in bashing each other than getting anything done. Each party also seems to whitewash its own principles.

How much hope do we have left when supposed independents such as Glenn Beck tear down constitutional candidates such as Ron Paul and Gary Johnson, while backing up war mongers such as Rick Santorum and draft dodging Mitt Romney?

This country and indeed the world, has never faced so many difference crisis in such a small amount of time before, and it appears that all most people can do is either sit back and ignore it, or call for blood.

The only way to get out of this mess and to avoid a war is to have the courage to stand up as individuals and speak out, to research the subjects which frighten us, to question boldly, to disagree with the status quo, and to share our findings.

I agree with Mike Rivero:

“The battle for the renewal of freedom in this country will not be won with battering rams, bullhorns, and bullets, but will be won to the sound of keyboards, the with bloggers and observers making logical, intelligent, peaceful assessments as to what is happening, and how things can be changed without firing a single shot.”

We must forge a new path if we are to avoid this catastrophe, we can no longer accept the solutions of the past.

The freedom of mankind is won through acts of individual heroism and wisdom. We must stand up for principles not only to save this country, but to become a beacon of hope for the world.

Isn’t it time we advanced ourselves past these stupid wars and look toward the stars once more? Or should we just ‘nuke’ other countries into oblivion and all die a horrible death?

I suppose the biggest and most important question right now is; what are you doing to safegaurd the future of your country, your freedom, and of the world? Are you prepared to do what is necessary to protect our home and humanity?

The justification for war and a lesson in critical thinking

It is always important to keep an open mind and explore new ideas. In a world full of nuclear weapons, perhaps it is time to tryout a nonintervention approach when dealing with foreign policy.

Here is a great speech by Howard Zinn, which questions the wisdom of going to war:

Critical thinking is essential for a society to move forward, and it is desperately needed in a time when a country is collapsing in upon itself.

“when it comes to war the means are horrible and the ends are uncertain” – Howard Zinn

Howard Zinn (August 24, 1922 – January 27, 2010) was an American academic historian, author, playwright, and social activist. Before and during his tenure as a political science professor at Boston University from 1964-88 he wrote more than 20 books, which included his best-selling and influential A People’s History of the United States.[2] He wrote extensively about the civil rights and anti-war movements, as well as of the labor history of the United States. His memoir, You Can’t Be Neutral on a Moving Train, was also the title of a 2004 documentary about Zinn’s life and work.

Eager to fight fascism, Zinn joined the Army Air Force during World War II and was assigned as a bombardier in the 490th Bombardment Group,[6] bombing targets in Berlin, Czechoslovakia, and Hungary.[7] A U.S. bombardier in April 1945, Zinn dropped napalm bombs on Royan, a seaside resort in southwestern France.[8] The anti-war stance Zinn developed later was informed, in part, by his experiences.

I don’t agree with Howard on everything, indeed some of his ideas are socialist in nature, but I do like his critical thinking.

Critical thinking is important, especially when the subject of war comes up. Wars are almost always based on lies, and the outcomes are not always as desired.

Critical thinking means looking for more information to fill in the gaps, instead of just seeing everything as black and white.

This picture presents a false dichotomy, because the ‘only other option’ currently being presented is Mitt Romney, who I have explained before is the same as Obama on almost every level.

Certainly it would be a move forward if he is replaced with a constitutional minded president, but not if he is replaced with someone like mitt Romney who is essentially the same in his beliefs.

Sites such as www.arewesafer.com represent a real problem in this country. This site presents another false dichotomy. Why do we want to feel ‘safer’ when safer really means less free. Should we bomb another country to make ourselves feel better about ourselves? Are they actually a threat to begin with?Or are they just being attacked so that a select few can make more money through the sale of oil, weapons and bloodshed?

I have seen many friends and family get caught up in the fascist mantra of blind nationalism in their fight against Obama and socialism. While I despise socialism, I know that neither collectivist concept will do us any good, and so I find myself in battles on both sides to get them to see reason.

We live in a world that is waking up to new ideas, and is slowly discovering that capitalism does work, but that it is still held back by corruption.

Always keep an open mind to something new, and check your premise. You might be pleasantly surprised with what you find out.

Critical thinking paves the way for the future because it is unbiased, and deals with the facts, and not just propaganda. Always do you own research and use your mind.

 

With critical thinking at the helm of governments instead of looters, perhaps we can avoid mindless wars altogether.

A World War III Scenario

Since writing this two years ago, Russian aggression and the annexation of the Crimea, coupled with the rise of ISIS, has changed things dramatically. It is no longer simply a concern of US forces being stationed throughout the world, but actual hostile aggression from other nations. The dogma against the US, for being evil, is being worn away by truthful conservatives such as Dinesh D’souza. And there is an even bigger problem at home with the weak kneed leadership of President Barack Obama.  – Paul Townsend 12/18/14

There is a build up of arms in the middle east, and the wars being carried out by the US and its allies seem to be endless. In order to safeguard themselves, Syria and Iran have a mutual defense pact.

China has vested interests in Iran, and has signed a deal to develop Iranian oil fields.

A Russian company has just signed a deal to develop oil in Kurdish self-ruled Northern Iraq.

There are Russian warships docked off the coast of Syria, and China has just sent a destroyer up the Suez Canal.

The following is merely speculation, but could become reality in the near future.

Here is a map of US forces in the world:

This is what I think might happen in a World War III senario, with the US and Nato vs Russia and China backing Syria and Iran.

The US forces and allied countries are shaded in blue, with Syria and Iran shaded in red:

If Syria is attacked, Iran has a mutual defense pact, and will come to its aid. An Iranian and Syrian counter offensive might look something like this:

Syria may attack along the Turkish border, against Israel, and along the Iraq border against US forces. While Iran may attack into Afghanistan, Iraq, Turkey, Oman, and Saudi Arabia, taking out its many oil fields, and shutting down the straight of Hormuz.

If China and Russia get involved, it might look something like this:

Russia could drop down from the north and support Iran against Iraq and Afghanistan , while attacking Turkey. China could enter the conflict from the east and enter through Afghanistan. Both Russia and China could use their Navy’s to attack from the Arabian sea and Mediterranean sea. For good measure they could mine the straight of Hormuz, the gulf of Aden, the Suez canal, and even the straight of Gibraltar. Not only cutting off half the world’s oil supply from the middle east, but also blocking in any NATO ships in the Mediterranean.

Now that was purely speculation. But here are some more facts:

The US produces 9 million barrels of oil per day, while Russia produces 10 million barrels per day. China produces 4 million but consumes 9 million. The problem the US has, is that while Russia only consumes 2.7 million barrels, with 3/4 of its production spare to sell. The US uses a staggering 18 million barrels a day, far out pacing its closest consumer; China, and using twice as much at is produces.

For some facts and figures on oil production, usage and firepower from all the worlds leading countries. Go to www.globalfirepower.com where you can even compare countries head to head.

For instance, here is how the US compares to Russia:

To bring some more realization to this, today Russia has reported US troops mounting alongside Turkish troops along the Syrian border. And Iran has warned Turkey not to invade Syria.

This is getting very serious.

Remember that China holds much of our current debt, and could cripple our economy without even firing a shot. I may be speculating on how an invasion, or counter attack might take place, but the facts are out there. The US and allies are building troops, and so are Russia and China.

Attacking Iran and Syria may be the United States biggest mistake in history. I am praying that we do not start such a foolish conquest.

Many believe that the US is invincible, and while currently powerful, the nation is crumbling at its core. Wars are expensive, and debt piles up. The USA was founded upon freedom, and yet there are many in government now who advocate an end to it through totalitarian pieces of legislation.

Real national defense comes from within, that is why the second amendment is so important in the US constitution. These needless conquests in the middle east need to stop,  as it may well help bring about the complete destruction of this country.

My reasoning for making this posting is to illustrate the danger to all the war mongers out there, and to those who are cheer leading for more conflict in a world already suffering from too many wars of aggression. Sure, there are elements of danger in the world toward us, but there has always been terrorists.

My concern is for the young men and women stationed out in the middle east right now, and for their families, as they are about to be asked once again to risk their lives and die for their county’s needless conquests, instead of returning home and actually protecting our freedoms.

Like I’ve said before, over the last decade, while our troops have been away, we have lost more freedoms at home, than in any time in our history.

Even without the use of nuclear weapons, a third world war, even if contained only to the middle east, would be catastrophic, and I urge everyone who reads this, to ask your senators and congressmen, to vote against any more sanctions, and to pressure the presidential candidates and leaders to avoid more bloodshed.

We have better means to gather more oil, and indeed an economy built on new jobs at home for oil production, is far better than death and destruction abroad to loot it from other nations.

The uncomfortable truth

Each day, I research different stories from a variety of sources. As I’ve stated before, I do not pay much attention to the mainstream media, as it is all agenda driven garbage. One of the independent sources that I follow is WhatReallyHappened.com . Mike Rivero does an excellent job of finding stories from many different news organizations and blogs, and displays links to them daily on his website.

Today he wrote about an uncomfortable truth about Nazi Germany, Israel, the USA and Iran, and what they all have, or do not have in common:

Here is the uncomfortable truth.

  NAZI ISRAEL USA IRAN
Invades other
countries
YES YES YES NO
Lied to justify invasion YES YES YES NO
Concentration camps YES YES YES NO
Targets a religious minority YES YES YES NO
Violates Treaties YES YES YES NO
World leader in weapons technology YES YES YES NO

The Nazis attacked and invaded other nations. So does the United States. So does Israel.Iran has not initiated a war in over 200 years.

The Nazis lied to start wars (Gliewitz). So does theUnited States (Saddam’s nukes). So does Israel (Iran’s nukes). Not having invaded anyone, Iran did not need to lie about it.

The NAZIS had slave-labor camps. The United States has a huge and growing prison-labor industry. Israel has Ansar III. Iran has no equivalent.

The NAZIs targeted a religious minority, Jews. The United States currently targets Muslims. Israel is an apartheid state. All religions live under equal protection in Iran to the point where Jews living in Iran refused a financial offer by the Israelis to relocate to Israel.

The NAZIs broke many treaties including the treaty of Versailles and the Munich agreement. The United States has violated numerous treaties including the START treaty and the NNPT. Israel violated the 1979 treaty with Egypt, and avoided violating the NNPT by refusing to sign it, even though Israel is building nuclear weapons and was exposed for trying to sell one to South Africa.

The NAZIs were renowned for their cutting edge weapons technology including the V-1 and V-2. The US makes no bones about making the most lethal (and costly) weapons on Earth. Israel has a major defense industry that develops new weapons such as Iron Dome with US subsidies, then markets them around the world.

And there is your uncomfortable truth.

Yesterday I updated my website and put my URL to good use. You can now go directly to my main site at www.abundanttruth.com which has links to different news sources, and also this blog.

Finding honest and independent news articles and blogs is a treasure in a time of deceit. I hope you find my articles interesting and thought provoking. I try to vary the subjects, and keep things fresh. My main theme throughout all my articles is to find the truth, and to encourage independent thought and support liberty throughout. Remember that independence and freedom starts from within, so always keep an open mind, and go out there and find the truth.

Resource Wars

I think the global warming myth is a sedate way of saying that we are out of oil and need to find alternative energies, after all, if politicians admitted that we are almost out of easily accessible and cheap oil, prices would skyrocket and economies would tank.

Why are US politicians so friendly with Israel, but not with other middle eastern states Is it because of oil?

We are currently in a time of peak oil. The US military actually published a report about this:

US military warns oil output may dip causing massive shortages by 2015

• Shortfall could reach 10m barrels a day, report says
• Cost of crude oil is predicted to top $100 a barrel

The US military has warned that surplus oilproduction capacity could disappear within two years and there could be serious shortages by 2015 with a significant economic and political impact.

The energy crisis outlined in a Joint Operating Environment report from the US Joint Forces Command, comes as the price of petrol in Britain reaches record levels and the cost of crude is predicted to soon top $100 a barrel.

“By 2012, surplus oil production capacity could entirely disappear, and as early as 2015, the shortfall in output could reach nearly 10 million barrels per day,” says the report, which has a foreword by a senior commander, General James N Mattis.

It adds: “While it is difficult to predict precisely what economic, political, and strategic effects such a shortfall might produce, it surely would reduce the prospects for growth in both the developing and developed worlds. Such an economic slowdown would exacerbate other unresolved tensions, push fragile and failing states further down the path toward collapse, and perhaps have serious economic impact on both China and India.”

The US military says its views cannot be taken as US government policy but admits they are meant to provide the Joint Forces with “an intellectual foundation upon which we will construct the concept to guide out future force developments.”

The warning is the latest in a series from around the world that has turned peak oil – the moment when demand exceeds supply – from a distant threat to a more immediate risk.

The Wicks Review on UK energy policy published last summer effectively dismissed fears but Lord Hunt, the British energy minister, met concerned industrialists two weeks ago in a sign that it is rapidly changing its mind on the seriousness of the issue.

The Paris-based International Energy Agency remains confident that there is no short-term risk of oil shortages but privately some senior officials have admitted there is considerable disagreement internally about this upbeat stance.

Future fuel supplies are of acute importance to the US army because it is believed to be the biggest single user of petrol in the world. BP chief executive, Tony Hayward, said recently that there was little chance of crude from the carbon-heavy Canadian tar sands being banned in America because the US military like to have local supplies rather than rely on the politically unstable Middle East.

But there are signs that the US Department of Energy might also be changing its stance on peak oil. In a recent interview with French newspaper, Le Monde, Glen Sweetnam, main oil adviser to the Obama administration, admitted that “a chance exists that we may experience a decline” of world liquid fuels production between 2011 and 2015 if the investment was not forthcoming.

Lionel Badal, a post-graduate student at Kings College, London, who has been researching peak oil theories, said the review by the American military moves the debate on.

“It’s surprising to see that the US Army, unlike the US Department of Energy, publicly warns of major oil shortages in the near-term. Now it could be interesting to know on which study the information is based on,” he said.

“The Energy Information Administration (of the department of energy) has been saying for years that Peak Oil was “decades away”. In light of the report from the US Joint Forces Command, is the EIA still confident of its previous highly optimistic conclusions?”

The Joint Operating Environment report paints a bleak picture of what can happen on occasions when there is serious economic upheaval. “One should not forget that the Great Depression spawned a number of totalitarian regimes that sought economic prosperity for their nations by ruthless conquest,” it points out.

For over 100 years western countries, particularly Britain and America, have had major interests in the middle east. This three part documentary, explains our obsession with oil in the Middle East over the last century:

But now we are running out of oil:

Peak Oil would explain our current foreign policy in the middle east, and the rising prices at home at the pump. The sad part is, is that we’ve known about peak oil for years:

So should we not now be focusing on new technologies?

There are two technologies which could have a massive impact against crude oil, and become a viable substitute for it in the future. These two forms of fuel are Algae Oil:

And Hydrogen:

So along with bad foreign policy, bad home policy, and all the silly controlling and nudging that goes on from congress. Should we not be concentrating on bringing our troops home, drilling at home, constructing the pipeline from Canada, and developing our own American resources? Resources that we could then sell to the rest of the world.

Think about it, if we develop hydrogen, and algae oil, and once again became the world’s largest oil and energy producer. Do you really think we’d need to have any influence in the middle east at all? Not only would our economy boom once more and return jobs to the US. We could also once again become the heart of freedom in the world and restore our republic. The US with all its own military might would still be the most powerful country in the world, but it would no longer have to strike fear into other nations as an imperial entity.
