Mike Adams Discusses a Counter-Coup


John R. Houk

© January 15, 2021

I just listened to a Mike Adams podcast on the Youtube Channel Conservative Voice. I wish I could have found this on another video platform for if even a fraction of what Adams shares is true, I suspect future Youtube censorship. The podcast may be on another video platform, but probably has a different title because I couldn’t locate it. HOWEVER, upon further thought, it is my sense Youtube’s Conservative Voice, took the Adams HRR Situation Report for 1/14/21 (Situation Update, Jan 14th, 2021 – The FEMA + Military coup to SAVE America, not destroy it) on Brighteon and split that roughly 90-minutes into segments.

 

Adams discusses people and all events in which the scenario is Donald Trump remains President at some point in 2021. My perspective is what is shared is under the category of wishful/hopeful thinking. In the public realm I just haven’t observed any actions that changes or rights Dem-Marxist election crimes and coup.

 

SO, if Adams is correct, things will occur dramatically in a moment of time. If it is bunk, Communism slowly spreads across American rule of law (the rule of the lawless) that makes COVID look like a picnic as the American Republic probably experiences final death throws into Sheepledom. I for one will not submit to Marxist Sheepledom.

Banning Alex Jones?


Justified Only If…

 

John R. Houk

Alex Jones is literally being censored on every digital media format I can think of.

 

I have to be clear. I am not a supporter or big fan of Mr. Jones. Many of his Conspiracy Theories propagated from his soapbox are just plain outlandish and crazy.

 

The massive digital censorship Jones is accused of is hate-speech. Frankly, as outlandish and offensive Jones can be I am not surprised the hate-speech accusations are levelled against him.

 

I do have a couple of problems with the censorship.

 

ONE: The same media platforms censoring Jones allow Muslims to spew Jew-Hatred and promote physical harm to Jews and other non-Muslims. However, when a non-Muslim points out Islamic tenets and Muslim history demonstrate violent hatred for all things non-Muslim specifying Jews, Christians and polytheists. Militant homosexuals overtly express hatred toward Biblical Values Christians yet will censor Biblical Values Christians for supporting the Bible’s labelling the homosexual practice a sin against God’s Word. In essence this is censorship hypocrisy.

 

TWO: The same media platforms rarely if ever censor Left-Wing calls for violence against Conservatives yet they will censor Conservatives refuting a violent Leftist agenda. For example Maxine Walters advocating Leftists to disrupt reputed Conservative meetings and Conservatives living their private lives at open-to-the-public venues. Astonishingly to date, Conservative individuals have refused to respond with self-defense violence for Leftist provocation. I’m a disabled dude and I don’t know if I would exhibit such self-restraint to respond with action if someone shouting directly in front of my face.

 

I hate defending Alex Jones because I am convinced he has used actual hate-speech; however look at some of phrases the digital media platforms label as hate-speech worthy of censorship via banning:

 

The resident Jew, Leftist Jews, Jewish Mafia (Alex Jones Accused Of Anti-Semitism, Sexual Harassment; By Aiden Pink; Forward.com; 3/1/18)

 

The same article on Forward.com also illustrates actual forms of hate-speech via sexual harassment which is unacceptable but demonstrated on Alex Jones programs.

 

I don’t know what Alex Jones other than the vague accusation of the kind of speech the digital platforms call hatred or inciting violence:

 

“… the stated reason for the ban on his content is not defamation but “hate speech” against Muslims, transgender people, and other groups.” (Booting Alex Jones from social media wasn’t wrong, but it could be dangerous; By Cathy Young; USA Today; 8/8/18 9:03 a.m. ET)

 

If the hate-speech was critical of a belief system corresponding to Islam or the LGBTQ agenda, then said hate-speech violation is an absurd accusation. If Jones said something dimwitted such as maybe, “hunt down the camel jockeys and give them a tasted of their own medicine” or “rope the fudge-packer and drag the shem down the road”. Those kinds of phrases are indeed inciting violence and is a good reason for censuring and/or banning.

 

Here is the Joseph Farah email (which is also a bit of a fundraiser) that inspired my thoughts.

First, they came for Alex Jones …

The pretense and subtlety are over, ‘Digital Cartel’ now overtly attacking ‘offensive’ voices

 

By Joseph Farah

I’ve been warning everyone who would listen about the greatest threat to freedom of speech, freedom of the press and freedom of religion in America today.

It’s not government.

Instead, the overt attack on America’s First Amendment comes from the corporate behemoth internet gatekeepers who are in ideological lockstep with each other – from Google to YouTube to Facebook to Twitter to Apple to Amazon.

This week, YouTube and Facebook followed Apple’s lead in banishing Alex Jones, the iconic, high-energy voice that rails against globalism and the Deep State daily on radio, podcasts and his own Infowars TV show. He was an easy target and a predictable one – a controversial figure, without doubt, and a high-profile one with a sizable following.

Not everyone wants to defend Alex Jones – certainly not everything he says.

Yet, the First Amendment wasn’t crafted by America’s founding geniuses to protect tepid, non-controversial speech. It was crafted to protect just this kind of fiery dialogue – the kind that offends some people, some sensibilities. Alex Jones is a good choice to start the censorship juggernaut rolling if you think like the Southern Poverty Law Center. And one thing Apple, Google, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and Amazon all have in common is their love of, reverence for, and partnerships with this extremist band of smear merchants who never met anyone right of center that they didn’t label a “hater,” a “fascist,” a “Nazi” or a “racist” – including, of course, the current president of the United States.

So, first the Digital Cartel came for Alex Jones.

Who will be next? I don’t know, but I don’t plan to find myself in the position in which Martin Niemöller found himself in Nazi Germany. He’s most famous for this prescient quotation: “First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out – Because I was not a Socialist. Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out – Because I was not a Trade Unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out – Because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me – and there was no one left to speak for me.”

I’m going to defend Alex Jones’ right to say what he wants – even if I sometimes, or even often, find myself in disagreement with him. And I’m going to condemn this cabal of bloated mega-corporations imposing their ideology on America’s most vital public square – the digital media.

Maybe you say, “Well, Farah, don’t these corporations have the absolute right to approve and disapprove of the viewpoints they carry – just like you do?” The answer may be surprising: No, they don’t. None of these conglomerates are publishers, content producers, part of the “press.” They are more akin to “utilities” – like the telephone companies of old, or the electricity producers who have a public obligation to be fair and neutral in offering the services they provide to all, without regard to race, religion and ideology. They don’t have to like Alex Jones. They don’t have to listen to Alex Jones. But if they are going to hold these privileged positions of making lots of money by distributing all manner of content, data and information to the public, they dare not think of themselves as ideological gatekeepers against “offensive” political speech. And they better not designate the disgraced partisan hacks of the SPLC as their content cops, which is precisely what they have done – all of them!

I know I sound like a broken record on this theme, but I’m going to keep pounding on it until the public catches on to the threat these trillion-dollar monopolies pose to America’s precious institutions of free speech, the free press and freedom of religion. We need congressional hearings. We need action in Washington. We need President Trump to recognize who the biggest purveyors of fake news really are. It’s not just CNN and the Huffington Post. It’s their distribution arms – Google, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Apple and Amazon – the Digital Cartel.

It’s time to throw down the gauntlet, draw a marker in the sand, file class-action lawsuits, summon our leaders to action.

Are we going to let this cabal render the First Amendment null and void?

I’ve been telling you how they have attacked WND relentlessly and ruthlessly through its politically and religiously discriminatory algorithms. I’ve told you how they have been coming after the independent media, especially since the 2016 election that so disappointed all of them.

Do you really want to talk about supposed Russian interference in our free society when this powerful monolithic cartel is setting the rules of debate for Americans out in plain sight – openly censoring voices they don’t like while systematically elevating those they do like? What a sick joke!

As for me, I will defend the voices of dissent, and even controversy, as long as I have a soapbox upon which to stand. I know they are coming after me and the world’s first independent online news company, which I founded 21 years ago. Once again, I ask you to stand with me, or else find yourself living in a country you won’t long recognize. No privacy. No freedom.

Please support us, or risk finding yourself living in a very different and scary version of America soon.

Help us to raise a much-needed additional $100,000 through August – our biggest crisis period yet, as we battle for survival against the cartel. We’re already nearly 20 percent of the way there, thanks to many of you. You may not be able to give $1,000 or even $100. But everyone who understands the stakes can contribute $10 or even $3.

 

You can also support WND’s groundbreaking new book, “The Gospel in Every Book of the Old Testament,” with your tax-deductible contributions in any amount to the fabulous missions organization, Gospel for All Nations, which has adopted the project to help spread the truth of the Good News around the world. This book, coming out in hardcover in September, is an important part of WND’s recovery, rebirth and revitalization plan for later this year. Your help with book-printing and marketing expenses will help immensely to weather this storm – not to mention help us distribute this compelling and redemptive “breakthrough Bible book.”

Jade Helm 15 and the Conspiracy Theories


Mark Alexander spanks Alex Jones over Jade Helm 15 Conspiracy Theories then Alexander goes on to show there are more patriots in the U.S. Military than any Leftist revolutionaries that an Obama might drum up for martial law or suspending the Constitution. The icing on the cake is Alexander’s brief explanation for the reason the Founding Fathers made a Second Amendment is to give the American people the opportunity to rise up against a rogue despotic government.

Jade Helm 15 and the Conspiracy Theories

A Reality Check on Military Exercises

ByMark Alexander

July 15, 2015

The Patriot Post

“Nothing is so contagious as opinion, especially on questions which … beget in the mind a distrust of itself.” —James Madison (1790)

Have you heard about Jade Helm 15? If the answer is “no,” then you don’t get your “news” from the paranoid purveyors of conspiracy theories at websites such as Infowars and World Net Daily. They gin up concern about non-issues in order to drive traffic to their websites — and to thereby sell advertising, products and services.

Jade Helm 15 is the name of a major military exercise scheduled to run between 15 July and 15 September. The exercise is coordinated by the United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) and involves special forces units of the Army and other service branches.

According to the Army SpecOps Command: “While multi-state training exercises such as these are not unique to the military, the size and scope of Jade Helm sets this one apart. To stay ahead of the environmental challenges faced overseas, Jade Helm will take place across seven states. However, Army Special Operations Forces (ARSOF) will only train in five states: Texas, Arizona, New Mexico, Utah and Colorado. The diverse terrain in these states replicates areas Special Operations Soldiers regularly find themselves operating in overseas. The training exercise will be conducted on private and public land with the permission of the private landowners, and from state and local authorities.”

An unclassified power point lays out the exercise in some detail. It involves about 1,200 military personnel, primarily Army Green Berets and infantry, but also some Navy SEALS and Air Force special operators.

Compared to other recent domestic military exercises, Jade Helm is large for peacetime practice (if you consider these to be “peacetimes”) and it’s the “the size and scope” that has all the conspiracy conscripts concerned that its real purpose is to prepare for an imminent declaration of martial law.

In Texas, home to almost two million active duty military personnel and veterans, the king of charismatic conspiracy kooks, Alex Jones, has generated a lot of heartburn among his unwitting lemmings.

Jones says he stopped using marijuana because “it made me paranoid,” then dropped out of Austin Community College before launching his Austin-based conspiracy enterprises, Infowars and his populist radio programs. Over the last few months, he has alerted his two million listeners that Jade Helm is “way worse than you realize,” claiming it was really about “military, police working together toward population control,” and “the U.S. Army’s plan to wage war on the American people.” According to Jones, “They’re going to practice breaking into things and stuff. This is going to be hellish. Now this is just a cover for deploying the military on the streets… This is an invasion … in preparation for the financial collapse and maybe even Obama not leaving office.”

Jones has ginned up concern with headlines like “Beyond Denial: Preparations for Martial Law in America,” warning that the “U.S. military is positioning itself to take over the states and declare martial law.”

This is the same Alex Jones who insists the federal government staged the Oklahoma City bombing and that George Bush organized the 9/11 attack.

He has stirred up so many Lone Star folks that Gov. Greg Abbott is having the State Guard monitor Jade Helm in an effort to quell the discontent. According to Abbott, “It is important that Texans know their safety, constitutional rights, private property rights and civil liberties will not be infringed.”

Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert says his office “has been inundated with calls,” and adds, “Certainly, I can understand these concerns. When leaders within the current administration believe that major threats to the country include those who support the Constitution, are military veterans, or even ‘cling to guns or religion,’ patriotic Americans have reason to be concerned.”

House Armed Services Committee Chairman Mack Thornberry (R-TX) says that the idea of our military acting as Obama’s “private army” was “just silly.” And of course it is.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said he had “no reason to doubt” the nature and purpose of this exercise, and offered a rational explanation for the Jade Helm concerns: “I think part of the reason is we have seen, for six years, a federal government disrespecting the liberty of the citizens. And that produces fear. When you see a federal government that is attacking our free speech rights, or religious liberty rights, [and] our Second Amendment rights, that produces distrust as to government.”

Defense Secretary Ashton Carter assured those concerned that the DoD has been “very open and upfront about our training activities” and “very responsive” to citizen inquiries — and they have.

Unfortunately, otherwise rational grassroots folks get swept up by conspiracy charismatics.

So, reality check — should folks be concerned about “the size and scope” of the Jade Helm exercise?

The short answer is “no,” but I admit that my perspective on such exercises is somewhat biased.

Having held for almost 25 years an executive-level appointment in a reserve national security capacity (one of those so-called “shadow government” folks assigned to FEMA/DHS), I have been involved in more than a few training exercises for senior military personnel.

Thus, I can assure you that the number of conservative Patriots in uniform is much higher than in any other profession. May I remind you that, according to reputable annual surveys conducted by The Military Times, Barack Obama’s approval rating among military personnel has fallen from a paltry 35% in 2009 to just 15% now, while his disapproval ratings have increased to 55%.

Obama loathes our military Patriots, as most of them do him. Frankly, he has far more concern about military loyalties than the good people of Texas need have. The notion that somehow our military Patriots will follow a pathological narcissist like Obama down a path to tyranny is patently absurd.

This is not to say that Americans should not be vigilant against the mischief that can infiltrate standing armies when a Socialist Democrat occupies the Executive Branch.

In 2010, we were alerted by some of our readers within the military that the designer of an Army security exercise listed the grassroots Tea Party among the terrorist groups that might assault Ft. Knox — “in order to make it more realistic.” We exposed this exercise in a column titled “Army Preps for Tea Party ‘Terrorists’,” and within hours of publication we heard from the commanding officer at Ft. Knox that the exercise was scrapped and the individual who drafted that scenario was being disciplined.

But there is a wide gulf between rational vigilance and the conspiracy hysterics currently associated with Jade Helm.

Rational vigilance has its origins with our Founders.

In 1783, George Washington wrote, “A large standing Army in time of Peace hath ever been considered dangerous to the liberties of a Country, yet a few Troops, under certain circumstances, are not only safe, but indispensably necessary.”

In 1787, in a speech before the Constitutional Convention, James Madison argued, “A standing military force, with an overgrown Executive will not long be safe companions to liberty. The means of defense against foreign danger, have been always the instruments of tyranny at home.”

Consequently, Article I, Section 8, Clause 12 of our Constitution reads, “The Congress shall have Power To … raise and support Armies, but no Appropriation of Money to that Use shall be for a longer Term than two Years…”

In other words, our Founders understood that the size of our military should comport with the exigencies of the time. Unfortunately, the current CINC does not understand those exigencies.

Our Founders also understood that American security against a standing army whose leaders disregarded their solemn oaths to defend our Constitution was contained in the plain language of that venerable document’s Second Amendment as the first assurance of the unalienable Rights of Man.

In 1787 Noah Webster observed, “Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom of Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops that can be, on any pretence, raised in the United States.”

Madison, who was the principal author of our Constitution, noted, “The ultimate authority … resides in the people alone. … [T]he advantage of being armed, which the Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation … forms a barrier against the enterprises of ambition.”

Our Founders uniformly understood that the individual right to self-defense constituted the best defense of Liberty for the whole people. Madison’s Supreme Court appointee, Justice Joseph Story, best summed up the Second Amendment: “The right of the citizens to keep and bear arms has justly been considered as the palladium of the liberties of a republic; since it offers a strong moral check against the usurpation and arbitrary power of rulers; and will generally, even if these are successful in the first instance, enable the people to resist and triumph over them.”

A century after the American Revolution, Congress enacted a specific prohibition, the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878, greatly limiting the use of military forces by federal authorities in a domestic law enforcement capacity. The primary exception is the use of National Guard and state defense forces under the authority of the governor of a state.

So what to do with the conspiracy propagandists on the Left and Right?

First, it’s worth understanding the nature of such theories and those who buy into these deceptions.

Every conspiracy theory is a combination of a foundational fact plus a lot of fiction heaped upon it — and each depends on a basic maxim, “You can’t prove a negative.” Pop conspiracy theories are all constructed on this predictable formula: 10% substance and 90% fragrance.

Most of these conspiracies assert the existence of a global political or economic “star chamber,” often puppet masters who are members of the Bilderberg Group or the Council on Foreign Relations.

Most disciples of such nonsense are not inherently ignorant or bad, but they harbor basic insecurities that compel them to grasp “straw man” explanations when their insecurities are triggered. The sense of order out of chaos derived from a conspiracy theory tends to satiate their insecurity. Notably, they are often most vulnerable to Internet conspiracy gurus, who decode events with greatly simplified theories. The most ardent adherents within these cults — the 9/11 “Truthers,” for example — have surrendered their willingness to discern fact from fiction in order to sustain their sense of security.

Beyond understanding the psychology behind this phenomenon, conspiracy theorists should be boldly called out for the pathetic frauds they are, and we should encourage anyone who subscribes to their folly to stop drinking their toxic Kool-Aid.

Jones, et al., are doing an enormous disservice to the conservative movement in Texas, dragging a lot of otherwise rational folks down a rat hole and creating unwarranted tension between civilian and military Patriots. Jones has never taken an oath “to Support and Defend” our Constitution, nor has he served a day in uniform. He has no understanding of the sense of duty, honor and sacrifice that forms the foundational drive among our military personnel.

He is promoting division between uniformed and non-uniformed Patriots at a time when military morale is very low.

Former Texas Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst, a Republican who served under Rick Perry, published a Dallas Morning News op-ed calling out the travesty of the Jade Helm conspiracy clowns. Dewhurst wrote, “Unfortunately, some Texans have projected their legitimate concerns about the competence and trustworthiness of President Barack Obama onto these noble warriors. This must stop.”

Indeed it must.

Exposing the Exposé on ‘I am a Ukrainian’


THIS IS NOT A SCAM

THIS IS NOT A SCAM

 

John R. Houk

© March 6, 2014

 

On March 1st I posted the video “I am a Ukrainian” on my blogs. The video was actually posted circa February 10, 2014. The video is a close-up of a Ukrainian gal that is pleasant on the eyes sharing with the world her feelings on the corruption that has existed in Ukraine with its government and as such is the reason for Ukrainians to flow to a public square – Maidan – in Kiev. The gal is identified only as Yulia and she implores for the video to go viral in the USA for Americans to write their Congressmen to show support for Ukraine. This all happened before Russia invaded the Crimea (Western) portion of Ukraine. I was glad to participate with many others to have the video go viral. I might add that Yulia asks for NO money.

 

In the comment section of this video a Google+ friend – Black Bear – left this comment on my SlantRight 2.0 blog:

 

Good find. It was exposed as some kind of scum:  http://youtu.be/-OBeYg8KdtY

 

I was a bit disturbed about someone calling the “I am a Ukrainian” video scum.  In hindsight I think Black Bear’s comment was something we all do; i.e. comment quickly without checking our spelling.  I suspect “scum” was supposed to be “scam”. So I clicked the Youtube link which took me to a Prison Planet/Infowars produced video:

 

VIDEO: ‘I am a Ukrainian’ Video Exposed As Kony-Style Scam

 

Published by PrisonPlanetLive

Published on February 20, 2014

 

The video is meant to push the idea that the Ukrainian revolt is grass roots, but its origins can be traced back to the U.S. State Department.

Original ‘I am a Ukrainian’ video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hvds2A…

FULL STORY with links and documentation: http://www.infowars.com/exposed-ukrai…

NEW VIDEO: Hidden Motives Behind the Ukraine-Russia Conflict –https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DFpKw…

 

I hadn’t actually clicked the “FULL STORY” link as yet. From memory I noted that the narration indicated this was a one-sided propaganda produced by the U.S. State Department through Larry Diamond a political promoter of Democratic initiatives globally (á la association to Jimmy Carter influenced NGOs). I was more disturbed so I wrote Justin Smith who gave me the hat tip to the video and who I also had previously posted an essay based on interviews with Ukrainian activists. I had queried if he knew anything about accusations that “I am a Ukrainian” is a hoax. He responded:

 

This is indeed a powerful statement. But, unbelievably, I’ve been catch ‘in a little heat from some of my friends, who have mistakenly taken my support for these Ukrainian activists as support of the UN, EU and IMF, which nothing could be farther from the truth.

Support of the Ukrainian protesters is supporting a government that will hopefully turn away from the corruption of past Ukrainian governments. I don’t necessarily think a strong tie of any sort with the EU is in the best interest of Ukraine at the moment, and like I’ve told them….nothing is in concrete at the moment.

A similar deal fell through last year, because the details could not be agreed upon with the IMF. But really, al the Ukraine should be looking for at the moment is a short term arrangement with very limited requirements from them in the future, and nothing that will further damage their sovereignty.

If they can really move away from corrupt leadership, that in and of itself will work wonders for their economy, inasmuch as, so much of the national treasury will not be stolen in the manner in which Vanukovych walked away with $40 million. Then the rest, while not easy, will be less difficult as they revamp business and government practices so that the nation and every individual is able to thrive…

In the end, a limited relationship with the EU, that draws Ukraine closer to the West, is more desired, than watching Ukraine pulled back into a Soviet-style sphere under Putin’s proposed Eurasian Union (EAU)… (Justin Smith via email circa 3/1/14)

 

In other words I believe Justin knew nothing of any hoax but knows the situation is critical for the rule of law and Liberty in Ukraine.

 

The Infowars link provides the appearance of documentation:

 

Exposed: Ukrainian ‘Protesters’ Backed by Kony 2012-Style Scam

 

By Paul Joseph Watson

February 20, 2014

Infowars.com

 

As they seize weapons, take over government buildings and fire on media outlets, the US-backed Ukrainian protesters are being afforded legitimacy with the aid of a Kony 2012-style viral video which triumphs the grass roots nature of the demonstrations yet is linked to shadowy NGOs that have been directly involved in staging phony ‘color revolutions’ in the past.

 

Infowars Link to ‘I am a Ukrainian

 

The video, entitled I am a Ukrainian, already has over 3 million views. It features an attractive woman insistently claiming that the Ukrainian uprising is solely about freedom and democracy.

 

The video is typically glib and simplified emotional propaganda which purports to explain that “there is only one reason” behind the protests in Ukraine, a bald faced lie which ignores the multi-faceted geopolitical factors behind the uprising, which center on the tug of war between the United States, the EU and Russia.

 

The woman encourages viewers to “help us only by telling this story….only by sharing this video,” thereby framing the debate around the naive narrative that the crisis is solely about Ukrainians wanting “freedom,” and in essence blacklisting the real reasons behind the western-instigated revolt, which focus on the geopolitical isolation of Russia.

 

The origins of the video are not quite as ‘grass roots’ as is portrayed. The clip was produced by the team behind A Whisper to a Roar, a documentary about the “fight for democracy” all over the world, which was funded by Prince Moulay Hicham of Morocco. The “inspiration” behind the documentary was none other than Larry Diamond, a Council on Foreign Relations member. The Council on Foreign Relations is considered to be America’s “most influential foreign-policy think tank” and has deep connections with the U.S. State Department.

 

Diamond has also worked closely with the National Endowment for Democracy (NED) and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). The National Endowment for Democracy is considered to be the CIA’s “civilian arm” and has been deeply embroiled in innumerable instigated uprisings, attempted coups and acts of neo-colonial regime change since its creation in 1983, including the contrived 2004 “Orange Revolution” that brought US puppet Viktor Yushchenko to power in Ukraine.

 

Larry Diamond also played an instrumental role in the Arab Spring under the auspices of the NED, a series of supposedly grass roots revolts that were in fact organized and managed by some of the most powerful western institutions on the planet.

 

Diamond’s connection to the viral “I am a Ukrainian” video clearly suggests that the clip is a crude effort to convince an unthinking public that the Ukrainian uprising is completely organic and is not being instigated by western powers, when the opposite is in fact the case. The clip is reminiscent of the Kony 2012 scam, where a viral video utilized simplified propaganda and emotional manipulation to convince millions of people of the necessity of U.S. military involvement in Africa.

 

In a Huffington Post interview, the creator of the video admits that he was in Ukraine “preparing a film on democracy” before the protests even started.

 

Providing absolute confirmation that the video is a carefully thought out public relations stunt, the woman in the video was immediately invited to appear on CNN with Anderson Cooper in a segment that will be broadcast tonight. Cooper and CNN aggressively pushed the Kony 2012 hoax until it fell apart when one of the directors had a public breakdown. Cooper was also heavily involved in promoting the fake “Syria Danny” hoax that relied on staged footage to push for U.S. military intervention in Syria.

 

With clear evidence of protesters being paid amidst accusations that they were armed by the United States, the narrative behind the Ukraine crisis is clearly more complex than a mere grass roots revolt against corruption. The pro-EU protesters are bizarrely seeking closer ties with a European Union infamous for its institutionalized corruption, malfeasance which costs almost the same each year as Ukraine’s entire GDP.

 

Many of the activists taking over government buildings in Kiev are also from the Spilna Sprava group, which is an organization funded and supported by billionaire globalist George Soros’ Open Society Institute.

 

The stage was set for the Ukraine revolt to become violent in December when US Assistant Secretary of State for Europe Victoria Nuland announced that the U.S. would invest $5 billion in order to help Ukrainians achieve “a good form of government.” The true nature of that government was revealed earlier this month when leaked phone conversations emerged of Nuland conspiring with US ambassador to Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt to pick Ukraine’s future puppet leaders, making good on John McCain’s vow to neutralize Russian influence.

 

Millions of people will never know the truth behind the Ukraine uprising because it is somewhat more complex than an attractive girl making glib statements about freedom and democracy for 2 minutes on a YouTube video. This is how propaganda works – the simpler the better. The video below provides a wider overview of the true agenda behind the crisis.

 

Infowars link to their video: The Truth About The Ukraine Crisis (Exposed: Ukrainian ‘Protesters’ Backed by Kony 2012-Style Scam; By Paul Joseph Watson; Infowars.com; 2/20/14)

 

I have read the links documenting the suppositions of this Infowars article. I have to tell you the used by Paul Joseph Watson are spoon fed from either the Russian propaganda machine or by websites whose background is typically hate-America.

 

One rings true in the article is that Ukraine’s political situation is complicated. The majority of the nation are native Ukrainian speaking people; however the western part of Ukraine which the news calls Crimea are primarily Russian speaking people. The speaking people exist in Ukraine through years of the former Soviet Union – particularly Stalin – utilizing a Russification campaign which included forbidding the teaching of the Ukraine language and the stamping out of the Eastern Rite but Papacy loyal Ukrainian Church. There are similarities between Ukrainian and Russian languages in that they both are Slavic. The differences lie in influential developments:

 

Slavic populations living in Eastern Europe are descended from the Indo-European ethnic and linguistic branch. They are classified into 3 groups: the West Slavic including Czechs, Poles, Serbs, Slovaks, the East Slavic comprising Russians, Belarusians and Ukrainians and the South Slavic including Bulgarians, Croats, Serbs, Bosniaks, Macedonians, Montenegrins and Slovenes. …

 

Language

 

Ukrainian is an East Slavic language using a Cyrillic alphabet and sharing vocabulary with fellow Slavic languages such as Russian, Polish and Slovak. Throughout its turbulent history the Ukrainian people have tried to preserve their linguistic and ethnic identity resisting the coercive means of empires it formed a part of. …

 

Culture

 

Ukrainian culture is a mixture of Christian principles and Cossack customs highly valued and preserved over the centuries. … Zaporozhian Cossacks had a distinctive influence in shaping Ukrainian identity in areas as folk music, dance, architecture, food and customs. To honor Cossack contribution the Ukrainian Great Coat of Arms features a Zaporozhian Cossack. … Russian culture is a result of a mixture of influences: from pagan tribe customs to Christian beliefs, from Turkish to Scandinavian contributions.

 

Summary

 

o   Ukrainian and Russian share the same East Slavic language pool and due to this their vocabularies are quite similar.

 

o   Ukrainian culture has a clear Cossack and Christian influences, while Russian culture is a result of native pagan as well as Christian roots mixed with Turkish and Scandinavian influences.

Now I wouldn’t be surprised if there was some money going to the protestors in some fashion BUT it was not to finance snipers to shoot at both corrupt government controlled police and protestors. In one of the sources used by author Watson relates how Putin encouraged currently deposed Yanukovich to use force to disperse the protestors. The reality is after Yanukovich used force and actually began using police brutality and shootings resulted in protestor deaths THEN the more right wing protestors initially shunned by other protest factions welcomed their aid in confronting the (Berkut) police.

 

A leaked recording has emerged between an Estonian diplomat and an EU diplomat in which a conversation agrees with the Russia Today (RT – Putin Mouthpiece available in English) coverage that both Maidan protesters and Berkut police were shot at by members of the Ukrainian Right Wing to frame ousted President Yanukovich for the deaths. Since indeed the Ukrainian Parliament dumped Yanukovich a lot credence was given to the Russian propaganda and now going viral on the web is the appearance of a non-Russian Estonian Foreign Minister Urmas Paet telling High Representative of the EU for Foreign Affairs and Security Police Catherine Ashton that he heard reports Blog Editor: You might think this post is long at this point but there is so much more to refute.

Distinguish Facts from Sensationalism


Conspiracy Theories & Misinformation

John R. Houk
© February 26, 2014
 
Danny Jeffrey utilizes a Liberal drilling of Allen West from 2012 to launch an editorial that is critical of websites that are dubious in presenting valid facts. Danny begins by praising Allen West for defending his position made at a fund raiser which Red Alert Politics writes, “…Rep. Allen West, R-Fla., isn’t backing down from comments he made at a fundraiser two weeks ago calling members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, including former Speaker Nancy Pelosi, “communists.” In fact, he’s coming out swinging.” The Allen West thing is what piqued my interest in reading Danny’s essay.
 
 
Danny lists some locations that tops his list of dubious factoid websites.
 
 
 
 
o   EU Times
 
 
o   Info Wars
 
o   Singling out Alex Jones (Ironically Left Wing SPLC profile concurs with Danny Jeffrey)
 
o   Noting the list is not exhaustive
 
This is what Danny Jeffrey summarizes about the authenticity of these websites:
 
…knowing these to be some major hoax sites … but believed to be reliable by oh so many. Another dead give away of sensationalist sites are images that are apparently photoshopped. Still another are claims that are too good to be true, or claims designed to scare the daylights out of you, validated only by anonymous or unverifiable sources.”
 
I have to confess I have used some of these websites as a resource. That would place me on Danny’s gullible list. But I have to admit I love a good Conspiracy Theory. Knowing that I love Conspiracy Theories I have learned to pick and choose between the plausible and the ridiculous. Unlike Danny I read these websites to discover non-Mainstream Media news, BUT Danny is correct! If you do as I do then do not accept the information found in these websites as truth. Do the research and discover what is real, what is iffy and/or what is a downright hoax printed for sensationalism.
 
Danny correctly singles out the 911 Truthers as being one of those ridiculous Conspiracy Theories. I am certain if Danny had the time to exposit on other ridiculous Conspiracy Theories he would have, but I think his point is that bloggers need to do their research to verify the information they are using. I would be interested in an exposition of ludicrous Conspiracy Theories from Danny but I sense that would be a long wait because he would consider that a waste of his valuable time in writing about valid issues.
 
Of late Danny is bringing the somewhat shadowy Leftist George Soros to the light to expose some of his nefarious actions hidden in the darkness. You should do a search on his to blog sites to be filled in on Soros. But don’t stop with Soros. Danny focuses on many issues that will pique your fascination with many things that don’t make it to the light of day except in some of those websites that Danny criticizes.
 
I encourage you to read his blog posts at his original (but now not updated) Freedom Rings 1776 and (his current blog location) Fix Bayonets. You will find volumes of informative essays that you mostly agree with but some that might rub you the wrong way (face it disagreement sharpens the mind to bring clarity).

DO YOUR RESEARCH
 
By Danny Jeffrey
February 24, 2014
 
Earlier today a Facebook friend posted a video of Allen West being grilled by a few liberal reporters. He took the grilling quite well and turned them into toast. Being the polite gentleman that he is, Colonel West did not call either of them an idiot, but proceeded to prove that they were. He simply told them to do their research, and then proved to the nation that he had done his. The topic under debate was his statement that there are a great many communists in Congress operating under the banner of the Congressional Progressive Caucus. The initial question was did he have any regrets about his original statement. His answer was no, and then he proved his point, based on his own research, and without the aid of a teleprompter. I love it when these liberals attack him because without fail he shreds them and they succeed only in giving him an opportunity to make his point. Such people should never try to belittle their intellectual superiors.


Funny thing about the truth; it is out there, and thanks to the search capabilities of the internet, is available to everyone … if they will but do their research. The sad fact of the matter is that so few are so inclined. Consequently we have millions of frightened Americans stumbling around in an advanced state of confusion, all the time wondering what in the hell is going on, while calling upon fellow Americans to wake up. An old phrase comes to mind: ‘The blind, leading the blind.’

Another very old phrase: ‘Seek and ye shall find.’ Those words are as true today as they were then, but thanks to the internet, the search is much easier and faster than at any time in our history. That being said I must also insert a warning: There has never been any field of endeavor that is immune to the influence of those who are less than truthful, it is therefore up to you to apply judgement (sic) in all that you read and believe. Failing to do so will leave you lost and stumbling about in the fog.

That reality applies to your everyday life, your job, politics, religion, daily news, and most assuredly those who would like to separate you from your hard earned money. It is up to you to separate the truth from deception. Unless you can do this, you are, and will continue to be, the victim of those who promote their agenda instead of the truth.

Recently an internet friend from the UK left a comment in response to one of my essays. His closing thought was “When I look at the hard work that goes into bringing facts to the public, which the public then ignores, I have trouble understanding why anyone would bother.”


Admittedly it is a lot of hard work, but even were I not writing, the search would go on, for I do not like being lost and confused. The pursuit of knowledge and truth are fundamental to my very nature. Anything less must be rejected. My early days on the internet proved embarrassing on two separate occasions believing what I read without further research. Those days are gone and I have become a hard core skeptic, believing nothing that cannot be validated.

Now when encountering a post left in a group the first thing I do is check the link source. If it comes from Before It’s News, Godlike Productions, Above Top Secret, EU Times, and such, I go no further, knowing these to be some major hoax sites … but believed to be reliable by oh so many. Another dead give away (sic) of sensationalist sites are images that are apparently photoshopped. Still another are claims that are too good to be true, or claims designed to scare the daylights out of you, validated only by anonymous or unverifiable sources. One of the best guides is simply to employ common sense. That term, unfortunately, is almost a contradiction as common sense is none too common, but it never hurts to put forth the effort.

One such example: Look at all of the people who believe the ‘evidence’ that both twin towers fell just like buildings intentionally destroyed by explosives planted on the framework of those buildings. Listen to Alex Jones’s ‘evidence’ and you will believe, but only if you lack the common sense to see through his nonsense. For this theory to be true teams of men would have had to go into a thousand offices, rip out the walls exposing the structural members, planted their explosives, and then replace those walls. Of course such logic never enters the mind of those ‘truthers’ who wouldn’t know the truth if it bit them on the ass; and one day it will.

How many board meetings would have had to have been interrupted; how many corporate president’s (sic) would have had to vacate their office while this sabotage was performed? Alex Jones, his ‘Prison Planet’, and ‘Infowars’, are more sites that I will not click. My time is far too valuable for such nonsense.

However; lies and absurdities are far easier to find than the truth, perhaps indicating why so many are so confused. I use Google, but whatever your search engine the process is the same. Type ‘911 inside job’ into your search window and let the search begin. Google returns page after page of conspiracy theorists and sites, naturally including Alex Jones. Fifteen minutes of fame, royalties on a book, or a daily talk show that caters to the ignorant; that is what it is all about, and gullible Americans line up for their daily dose of misinformation.

I am about to embark on what may seem a lost cause, revealing the true agenda of George Soros. It will not be a lost cause although I am the first to acknowledge that it will be poorly attended, due to an overwhelming lack of interest. Americans really do not want to know, and even most of those who realize that Soros endangers our every liberty do not want to know any more. They are not the audience that I choose to address.

Though few in number there yet remains a scattering of hard core patriots with a burning need to understand what is taking place in our failing society. I shall not attempt to entertain, promote half truths (sic), blatant lies, or show photoshopped images of Soros and Obama. Sensationalism is unbecoming of the truth, and it is the truth that I shall endeavor to present. It is an awful truth that many shy away from, for this man’s agenda reeks of pure evil. He is the most powerful misanthrope this world has ever known, and he hates us all with an equal passion. That hatred is being used to reshape the human race, eliminating a large portion of it in the process.

In an odd way I have come to admire George Soros, evil incarnate though he be. He has a grasp of human nature that few, if any, can equal. This man is one of the wealthiest people in this world and I do not believe him to be greedy. Money to him is but a tool that grants him the power to reshape the world in his image. Though not personally greedy, he well understands the greed that is part of human nature, and that understanding is the part of the power that he wields over us. Greed, laziness, ignorance, and those who seek to dominate. These traits are the Sword of Damocles that he holds over our heads.

In future installments of The World According To Soros I shall put before you the facts concerning this king maker and this man who would re-engineer the human race. His tentacles of power reach far and wide, destroying the economies of nations, leading the weak into revolutions, and wreaking havoc on all that humanity has accomplished. I ask but one thing, the same thing that Allen West suggests … Do your research.

Some see, few know, many choose to wander aimlessly in a fog, devoid of sunlight. I seek the light of day and leave the others to their chosen realm of ignorance.

AN INTRODUCTION TO ‘FIX BAYONETS’
 

For the sake of long term readers, I must briefly explain my need for a new website:

I have an insurmountable problem with my previous blog that has to do with the ‘feed’. Everything about it works just fine with the exception of it not being able to send Emails to my followers whenever I post a new essay. I have learned what caused the cumulative problem but am still unable to repair it, and so today I turn a new page. Armed with a new knowledge of how to avoid future problems, I am relegating Freedom Rings 1776 to a background archive, totally accessible but no longer serving my needs.

There is also a second reason for what I have begun. My first website was named with a sense of optimism, while this one is from a sense of desperation, for we are most assuredly losing in the political arena. Since Obama was first chosen by the Progressive overlords, we have been subjected to betrayal, deceit, a loss of liberty, and rampant corruption, and as an honest people, we simply do not know how to engage on their terms.

We seek truth while they propagate lies. We hope to engage in honest debate, but the Progressives shun that honesty for it exposes their plan of domination, while liberals turn away choosing not to know the truth. We hear epithets such as ‘Racists’, “Bigots’, ‘War on Women’, and ‘Islamophobia’, while they delude America with feel good platitudes about ‘equality’, ‘fairness’, ‘helping the poor’, and ‘sharing the wealth’; the very things the Founders warned about.

InfoWars.com created a video about democide which is death by government. Although some of the points are Conspiracy Theory accusations, pointing to modern despotic nations as the number one killers of people in the world are accurate figures. The point behind the video: democide loves gun control!
