RIP France

A couple of months ago I went to Paris with my wife and in-laws. You could feel the desperation as we walked past the homeless, the immigrants and the armed police.

I had hoped then that Marine Le Pen would win the next election. Today, sadly, the French have decided their fate.

99 years ago with the aid of the British Empire and the United States of America, France was able to hold off Germany. 72 years ago, the British Empire and the United States of America liberated France after five years of oppression from the Germans.

Today France has chosen willingly to bow to the EU and Germany while allowing its borders to be open to terrorism.

Today is a very very sad day for France.

Demonstrators dump barriers in front of the White House

This weekend civil disobedience was in full swing. Although the mainstream media either ignored it, or tried to say that it was a failure or a small protest, it was anything but that.

At approximately midday protesters took down the barriers at the Lincoln and WWII memorials and walked them over to the white house. Police in full riot gear stood between the protesters and the white house fence, before the protesters began shouting “shame on you” to the officers. The police then stepped aside allowing the protesters to dump the barriers in front of the white house gates in a triumphant show of civil disobedience against Obama’s campaign of pain during the government shutdown.

Day 3: Negative US Media Coverage Fails to Stop Constitutional Truckers and Veterans Moving on DC

1-Ride-for-the-Consitution-#T2SDA
21st Century Wire
 says…

131012-dct-190UPDATE: More DC Truckers along with many other vehicles have continued to pour into the nation’s capital today, as day three of Ride for the Constitution commences.

Convoy spokesman, Ernest “General” Lee (photo, left) was busy Saturday coordinating new incoming convoys. 

From early Sunday morning, Lee reported that the number vehicles on the roads have been building. Lee stated, “We got flags flying, horns honking, rigs, trucks and other vehicles stretching 10 miles along interstate 495 in Maryland. I cannot see an end to it, everyone has their flashers on.”

“We’re running at 42mph, and these people in the other lane are riding alongside us. We’re sending a message.”

Lee has also led the truckers’ effort to join up with the thousands of US Veterans and their families who are also pouring into Washington DC this morning for demonstrations at both the World War II Memorial and the Iwo Jima Memorial. 

“Right now we have a detachment of bobtail trucks carrying veterans going downtown to the WWII Memorial, and another detachment headed to the US Marine Iwo Jima Memorial. We’re surrounded by supporters of the vets.” said Lee.

#T2SDA_#T4VETS_WWII_Memorial_Vets_Truckers_ProtestFrom 8:00am EST, after a man with wire cutters cut through government-imposed barriers at the war monument, thousands of protesters (photo. left) and US Veteran supporters entered the World War II Memorial, with more pouring in. Demonstrators were joined at 9:30am EST by a mile long convoy of #T2SDA + #T4VETS big rig trucks, four-wheel drive and motor vehicles. Despite a blackout in US mainstream media coverage, independent U Stream live video feeds have been up documenting events on the ground there. 

At 9:00am EST, Metropolitan police vehicles reported to be blocking streets in the immediate area around the WWII Memorial, but no reports of harassment of demonstrators by law enforcement as of that time. 

According to one veteran on site, former US Marine Will Gonzalez, “Police are helping block the roads for us. They are definitely supporting us. There are at least a few hundred people walking from the WWII memorial towards the White House.”

At 11:00am EST, GMN live reported that hundreds of protesters headed for Washington DC’s Lincoln Memorial, torn down the government barriers, and began occupying the monument.

At 12:00pm EST, demonstrators took down the barriers from the both WWII and Lincoln Memorials, and carried them over the White House and dumped them in front of the White House gates. According to GMN reporter Will Gonzalez, “A group of police with masks and full riot gear moved between us and the White House, but after the crowd shouted ‘shame on you’, the police backed away”.

The corporate mainstream media have been working overtime all week – not to cover any facts on the ground – but to brand this weekend’s DC trucker protest as failure. From before the protest began on Friday, headlines appeared to be uncannily coordinated, and clearly designed to deflect support away from Ride for the Constitution’s convoys. 

As is normally done when they band together to promote US involvement in illegal wars, most notably with the White House’s botched effort to launch a war in Syria, here’s how the corporate media cartel tried to dampen support for truckers’ constitutional effort: USA Today said, “Rain, not trucker protest, slows D.C.-area traffic“. FOX News said, “Dozens, not thousands, show up for DC trucker protest.” Reason.com said, “Trucker D.C. Beltway Shutdown Plan a Hoax“.Politico said, “Trucker Protest a Bust“.In probably the greatest example of mainstream media going out of it’s way to distract from the real DC trucker event, America’s alleged ‘paper of record’ devoted it’s only coverage of events to a planted, fake photo, which went viral online via Twitter. Yesterday afternoon, one of the Post’s dedicated core of jobsworth desktop journalists, Caitlin Dewey, published an article,”Viral photo from Beltway trucker protest actually from an event last May“. Sadly, this was all the Washington Post could manage in coverage – for an event happening in their own back garden.  

The irony of course, is that it was the Washington Post itself, who helped made this very same planted photo go viral early on Friday when they featured the photo in question in their own Twitter news feed which ran alongside of their earlier DC traffic article mentioning truckers. Here the  screenshot, recorded on Friday Oct 11, at 12:39 EST:
#T2SDA_Twitter
There were other mild efforts over the weekend to cover events. Local NBC Washington affiliate WBIR was one of the only corporate media outlets who managed to make the effort to connect with Ride for the Constitution, sending a journalist to ride with a trucker on Saturday morning. 

“Truckers protesting the actions of President Obama and Congress continue to slowly circle the Capital Beltway on Friday. They say they are fed up with what many of them consider an abuse of the Constitution.

WUSA9′s Bruce Leshan traveled with the convoy for a while. At noon, he reported that he was traveling approximately 2 miles per hour, with the traffic almost completely stopped…”

As you can see from the alternative media and from the YouTube videos, the protests are a roaring success. We the people will not be silenced!

The Truth – by Brandon Raub

After doing more research on Brandon Raub, I find myself agreeing with him on much of what he says. This is a post he made on his Facebook on November 11th 2011:

The Truth
by Brandon J Raub on Friday, November 11, 2011 at 10:00 am

America has lost itself. We have lost who we truly are. This is the land of the free and the home of the brave.

This is the land of Thomas Jefferson.

This is the land of Benjamin Franklin.

This is the land of Fredrick Douglas.

This is the land of Smedley Butler.

This is the land John F. Kennedy.

This is the land of Martin Luther King.

This is the land where the cowboy wins. This is the land where you can start from the bottom and get to the top. This is the land where regardless of you race and ethnicity you can succeed and build a better life for you and your family. This is the land where every race coexists peacefully. This is the land where justice wins. This is the land where liberty dwells. This is the land where freedom reigns. This is the land where we help the poor, and people help each other. This is land where people beat racism.

The Federal Reserve is wrong. They have designed a system based off of greed and fear. They designed a system to crush the middle class between taxes and inflation. This is wrong, and it is unjust. It is wrong.

We have allowed ourselves to be deceived and seduced by the powers of the printing press. It is not a good system. It discourages saving: the foundation for all stable economic activity. The Federal Reserve is artificially manipulating interest rates and creating phony economic data.

This thing has deceived our entire nation.

They created it in 1913. They also created the income tax in 1913. They encouraged the growth of debt so they can tax you on it. There is interest on the debt. Your government is in bed with these people. They want to enslave you to the government so that they can control every aspect of your lives. It is an empire based on lies. They operate of greed and fear.

There is a better way. It’s called freedom. Freedom is called a lot of things. But there is a true meaning. It means very simply that you have the right to do whatever you want as long as you are not infringing on the freedoms of other people.

I firmly believe that God set America apart from the other nations of the world. He saved a place where people could come to to escape bad systems of goverment. This system we have created works. It really works.

There is evil going on all around the world. The United States was meant to lead the charge against injustice, but through our example not our force. People do not respond to having liberty and freedom forced on them.

Men and Women follow courage. They follow leadership, and courage. Our example has paved the way for people all around the world to change their forms of government.

Force is not the way because liberty is a powerful concept. The idea that men can govern themselves is the basis for every just form of government.

We can govern ourselves. We do not need to be governed by men who want to install a one world banking system. These men have machine hearts. Machine and unnatural hearts.

They have blocked out the possibility of a better world. They fear human progress. They have monopolies on everything.

This life can be free and beautiful. There are enough resources on this earth to support the world’s population. There are enough resources on this earth to feed everyone. There is enough land for everyone to own their own land and farm, and produce their own energy.

These people have been hiding technology. There are ways to create power easily. There is technology that can provide free cheap power for everyone. There are farming techniques that can feed the entire world.

The Bill of Rights is being systematically dismantled. Men have spilled their blood for those rights.

Your sons and daughters, your brothers and sisters, and Americas best young men and women are losing their limbs. They are losing their lives. They are losing the hearts. They do not know why they are fighting. They are killing. And they do not know why.

They have done some extraordinary acts. Their deeds go before them. But these wars are lies. They are lies. They deceived our entire nation with terrorism. They have gotten us to hand them our rights. Our Rights! Men died for those rights!

September Eleventh was an inside job. They blew up a third building in broad daylight. Building 7.

Your leaders betrayed you.

You elected an aristocracy. They are beholden to special interests. They were brainwashed through the Council on Foreign Relations. Your leaders are planning to merge the United States into a one world banking system. They want to put computer chips in you.

These men have evil hearts. They have tricked you into supporting corporate fascism. We gave them the keys to our country. We were not vigilant with our republic.

There is hope. BUT WE MUST TAKE OUR REPUBLIC BACK!

http://www.facebook.com/brandon.raub

Brandon’s Facebook page in many ways looks like mine. I post many articles, quotes and pictures on a daily bases. The difference is that I don’t say anything that would lead people to think I’m inciting violence. Some of his comments could be misconstrued that way.

I wonder if he knew that if he posted enough, he would be picked up? He doesn’t seem like a dangerous person to me, but perhaps ‘the authorities’ thought he might be another James Holmes, and go on a rampage.

The things that Brandon was posting on his facebook page make a lot of sense to those of us who have become aware of the corrupt system that works behind the scenes. Our republic really is under threat from multiple groups right now.

“I feel like I am standing at a great crossroads. As if a storm of destiny is about to pick me up and take me to fight a great battle. A battle I could have never imagined existed” – Brandon Raub

If he chose to make a scene of himself on facebook to get picked up and expose the tyranny that has gripped our nation, then I say more power to him. Non-violence is a far stronger weapon than some idiot going on a killing rampage. I think the heros like Brandon have seen enough bloodshed from our fruitless and unconstitutional wars in the middle east.

“Sharpen up my axe; I’m here to sever heads.” – Brandon Raub, August 13th 2012

I believe his ‘sever heads’ comment is only a metaphor, as you can certainly sever other peoples arguments when you sharpen your blade on the grindstone of truth.

Whatever Brandon’s intent on Facebook, whether he, like myself is just out there to expose the truth, or whether he was just venting, or imploring others to do their own research and join him in the argument for liberty. Then I say he is a hero for exposing the system for what it is.

“The Revolution will come for me. Men will be at my door soon to pick me up to lead it. ;)” – Brandon Raub, August 14th 2012

Let’s keep up the pressure and expose what’s happening to him, so that no-one else is picked up and detained.

Here are further news stories which are finally starting to surface about him:

http://wtvr.com/2012/08/21/full-text-brandon-raubs-proclamation-take-our-republic-back/

It is up to us as individuals and citizen journalists; to put the pressure on the mainstream media and get events like this covered. Without us, patriots like Brandon will be left to rot in a cell somewhere under a once free republic.

“Friends,

You deserve to kow the truth. There has been an overwhelming amount of evil enacted and planned against you, your children, and your countrymen. It is great in scope. Your government evil. It is as simple as that. 

And the calvary is coming.”

– Brandon Raub, August 12th 2012

Yes Brandon, the cavalry is coming; there are many people like you out there, and our ranks are swelling every day. We need not have bloodshed again on our soil, but we will take the country back.

Let’s turn the corrupt system on it’s head, and free Brandon Raub!

Paul Ryan stunt backfiring

Two articles I read today highlight what I have been saying about the Paul Ryan stunt being made in the media.

“The American people have been inundated with the propaganda push designed to make Paul Ryan into an established patriot on a crusade to save America.  This action has caused an effect in that millions have flocked to the internet to find out who Paul Ryan really is and in doing so have been exposed to more of the truth on every front.  In reality the headlines of today should be, “GOP will attempt to disenfranchise a majority of voters at its Convention beginning the 27th”.

by Henry Shivley
From the Trenches

REPUBLICAN White House hopeful Mitt Romney sought distance yesterday from his running mate’s budget plan, a lightning rod for criticism from Democrat foes — The Australian

The mainstream propaganda is now forced to remove itself completely from reality in its last ditch effort to preserve the status quo. They have failed in dividing we the people via race, religion, gender, age, and economic status and can only put forth the program as dictated to them by their corporate masters.

I must have heard it a hundred times over the weekend with the introduction of Paul Ryan, “The people now have a clear choice.”  What a crock of hooey.  The only choice left to we the American people is where to begin making the arrests. The 2012 Election is nothing more than a crime in progress and we, more now than ever, must confront these treasonous parasites.

The talk of Tampa has been quieted.  It is time to turn the volume back up.  All patriots who can make the journey need to be there.  We must force these petty tyrants to show themselves for what they are in all their glory.  We must stand firm and exercise our right to protect ourselves from any and all unlawful attack.  In considering what is lawful and unlawful, we must have our Bill of Rights front and center in our minds and free of any and all encumbrances.

The insurgents are preparing for unrest but how would it be if a couple million of us showed up, intent on exercising our 1st Amendment right to grievance through freedom of speech and with the determination that we will no longer be ignored.

The GOP Convention will be the most important days in our lifetimes as these will be the days as here it will be decided whether this will be as peaceful transition as possible back to our Republic under our Constitution with our Bill of Rights enforced absolute with Dr. Paul as the GOP nominee, or a forcible removal of the insurgency.

If you are not ready, I suggest you get that way as we have put this off for as long as we can.  If you do not have a gun and ammunition, get them.  If you do not have food stored, do it, as food will be used as a weapon.  Steal yourselves in your determination to get this unpleasant business over with as quickly as possible.

Our armed population cannot be matched by all of the armies of this planet combined.  And we will be fighting for the most noble of causes – life, liberty, freedom, and prosperity.  The world is watching.  Let us show them what we are made of.

God bless the Republic, death to the international corporate mafia, we shall prevail.

Paul Ryan is a propaganda stunt to get people to swallow the ‘Mitt Romney pill’ and ‘pull the lever’ to oust Barack Obama. But it is backfireing. No one pays attention to the mainstream media anymore, and people are starting to look to the internet for the truth. Even the Zionist puppet master Glenn Beck cannot dupe enough people into thinking Ryan is a saint. All you have to do is go to youtube or sites like this and find all the articles and videos of Paul Ryan voting for liberty stripping bills such as the NDAA act, the patriot act and multiple billion dollar bailouts.

If you think for a second that my generation, the veterans, and all the true liberty loving patriots are going to concede to the likes of Mitt Romney, think again. Rand Paul just found out the hard way. The establishment is not interested in any of us.

What Did Rand Paul Gain?

The Daily Bell  Mitt Romney has picked the youthful warmonger Paul Ryan to be his running mate.

From my point of view, this leaves the junior senator from Kentucky, Rand Paul, standing near the altar like a jilted bridesmaid. Not a very pretty picture.

And now what has Rand Paul got?

I’ll tell you in four words at the end of this article.

No peeking.

First, the bigger picture … So far Rand’s gamble – endorsing Romney – doesn’t seem to be paying off. And there may be a salutary lesson in this.

It is late in the day.

The power elite that wants to run the world is more ruthless than ever. Panicked by the Internet and the exposure of the globalist conspiracy, they have launched half a dozen wars and kicked off a worldwide economic depression.

If they cannot run the world, they seem to be saying, no one else shall have it either. Like children, they clutch the Earth’s big blue ball to their collective chest.

Only they are not children. They control the world’s central banks, the world’s nuclear arsenal and are collectively worth trillions. And they are furious.

They don’t like to be challenged, apparently, not fundamentally, as the Internet has done.

What we call the Internet Reformation has exposed their plans and shown quite clearly the length and breadth of the directed history they’ve practiced while snickering behind their long, gilded sleeve.

Rand Paul can promise to serve them. But it is, as I said, late in the game. Their arrogance is rising along with their fear. And thus, they treat their servants more carelessly than ever. They are discarding the useless ones feverishly.

They are preparing to jettison a whole shelf-load of bankers, for instance – accusing them of corruption in order to pass more laws that will further tighten their grip over the world’s financial commerce. These elites RUN government. When laws are passed, they inevitably benefit.

Their servants, former masters of the universe, are just now starting to understand what it means to work for Money Power … and how quickly the dynastic families worth trillions will slough off mere billionaires if it suits their purposes.

Rand Paul is getting that treatment now. Perhaps he insufficiently understood their ruthlessness and desperation.

Did he really believe at this late date that he – a mere mortal – could horse-trade with the gods? Once they saw how angry he’d made his base with the Romney endorsement, they no doubt cast him aside.

Perhaps Rand Paul didn’t know … or doesn’t understand. Their promises are worthless. He is less than human to them, a two-bit player in the carny act of regulatory democracy.

What does Rand have now?

There is the nebulous promise of speech-ifying at the GOP Convention, but no specifics announced yet.

And, really, at this point, who will be watching the convention?

Nobody much likes Mitt Romney that I can tell, even his supporters. They say things like, “I will gladly pull the lever for Mitt Romney to get rid of the socialist Obama.”

They’re not excited about Romney, you see … just excited about ridding themselves of someone else.

“Savvy” observers counseled that Rand Paul had made his endorsement to “play the game” – with the idea that you have to show the powers-that-be that you are willing to accept the current reality before you are allowed to change it.

These observers speculated that Rand Paul was in the running for the vice presidential nomination. They also surmised that Rand Paul’s endorsement might have won him a center-stage speech slot at the upcoming convention. Maybe even his dad might be given a slot as a result.

But so far, it doesn’t look like it.

US News recently pointed out that Ron Paul ”suffered a setback in his effort to have a major impact on the Republican National Convention” when the Republican National Committee declined to recognize a slate of Paul delegates from Louisiana.

Much thoughtfulness there, eh? Meanwhile, there is no news about Ron Paul addressing the convention. The leading constitutionalist politician of his era will not even speak at his “last hurrah.”

And if Rand does, I doubt he’ll get center stage. I doubt in the long run it will mean anything at all.

He can’t bring the young people with him to vote for Romney because the young people have delved deep into the Internet and discovered the con. The wars are a con, the economy is a con … even their future is a kind of con.

Are they supposed to vote for this media airbrushed personality, this second-rate financial thug whose supporters literally beat Ron Paul supporters like a collective drum in order to satisfy … what? Rand Paul’s measured, calculated massaging of the GOP ego?

It is late in the day for Ron Paul supporters as well. And there are tens of millions of them. They could have been Rand’s.

And ironically, if he hadn’t decided to be a little too smart, he could have “taken them with him.” If he hadn’t compromised, if he’d stood up to the pressure and the powers-that-be, he’d actually have come closer to achieving his goal.

What’s clear is that Rand Paul DOESN’T control his father’s base. One only needs to read the Internet to see that. If they perceived of him as they do his Daddy, then they WOULD be his.

And he would be stronger rather than weaker.

Because ALL they respect is strength. Rand Paul may have thought by portraying himself as a more reasonable man than his father, he’d ingratiate himself and receive cooperation and kudos. (And eventually more power.)

But ironically, he HAD the power … millions, young and old, who were willing to donate for him, campaign for him, literally bleed for him.

All he had to do was say “no” to the established interests.

But he thought he was just a bit smarter than those around him. He apparently figured he’d play the game and keep his base, anyway. Instead, they’re casting him off.

So again, I ask, what has he got?

A taste like ashes.

The future of politics in America, will come with the shrugging of the establishment altogether. We are no longer able to tolerate the lesser of two evils from a completely bankrupt and corrupt system.

The future of the country will lie in exposing the truth and banding together to bring our liberties back. Whether Ron Paul is successful at the convention or not, the future lies in the individuals who will do the work that the establishment is not willing to do.

Liberty groups such as the tea party and occupy wall street will band together on issues and force the establishment to make concessions.

The Romney/Ryan stunt will most likely fail, and we’ll be faced with another four years of Barack Obama. But at least we will have a chance to pick up the pieces after the election process is all said and done, and start building the country from the grassroots up again. And the Tea Party and other groups will realize that siding with the establishment will no longer work, and that we will have to push our agendas of liberty, come hell or high water.

In the mean time, we still have a few days left to get Ron Paul through the convention. Let’s pray that he gets through, and good luck to all the patriots attending the gathering in Tampa!
