Newbill Shares on Finicum & Dearborn Cop’s Murdering Woman


John R. Houk, Editor

February 1, 2016

Tony Newbill has found two stories that are not really similar except perhaps in one thought; viz. the focus is in government overreach as in utilizing too much police authority as per the rights of American citizens.

The first examines that LaVoy Finicum’s murder was motivated more by government greed via the deception of ecological concern. Evidently the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) usurped public land in Oregon under the auspices of protecting a bird that MIGHT go on the endangered species, BUT when the bird did not make the list the BLM began collaborating with a mining company that wants to mine for uranium to turn it into yellow cake. The thing is the process of extracting the yellow cake is a probably environmental disaster toward ranchers and farmers in that Oregon area.

The second case involved the Dearborn Police chasing a woman that fled a mall in which she aimed her car at mall security. As the chase ensued the Dearborn Police managed to place the lady’s car into an enough of a standstill for massive bullet to be shot at the fleeing 31-year-old lady (Janet Wilson) who died from the bullets. Two things of note to me is that the Dearborn Police have a habit propping up the Dearborn Muslim majority’s acts of stifling the First Amendment rights of Christians AND the 31-year-old lady was an African-American. Sadly, within a 40-day period the 31-year-old Black lady was the second African-American that died (Kevin Matthews) at the hands of the Dearborn Police through the same use of unreasonable force.

The police in cooperation with the FBI got their men about 20 miles north of Burns, Oregon on Tuesday, January 26, 2016. Mark that day in history, folks, as the day the old west was given a warning shot. A warning shot that said very loud and clear to the American public: Don’t mess with the government, don’t question authority, don’t stand up for the Constitution or your supposed “rights,” just submit or die.

A Tale of Cattle, Sage Grouse, and Uranium in Oregon

By Barbara H. Peterson

January 28, 2016

Farm Wars

Once there was a cowboy who let his herd of cattle roam free on thousands of acres of wilderness. He knew that they would live in harmony with the other critters, and that the land would benefit. He made sure that there was plenty of water and plenty of room so that the land would flourish. You see, if given enough room, critters are good for the land. They eat the overgrown forage and leave behind fertilizer that helps new forage to grow, which nourishes every other critter. Each critter has enough room to get out of the other one’s way, and everyone is happy.

That is, until the government in its infinite “scientific” wisdom, decides that cattle are bad for the land.

But is that the real reason that cattle ranching, as it has been done for over a hundred years, is now scheduled to become obsolete? A thing of the past – something to be disdained and thrown to the curb?

Picture a pristine wilderness devoid of the ravages of civilization and industrial development. Birds flying overhead and deer roaming free. Paradise as far as the eye can see. And in the middle of this haven designated as “public lands” set apart to be protected by the benevolence of the Federal Government’s Bureau of Land Management (BLM), is an open pit uranium mine.

Say what??? You have got to be kidding me! Nope. This is what the BLM has on the back burner for the Malheur Wilderness area.

And the cowboys? Well, the last ones who attempted to get in the way of this takeover of land for the “public good” are now sentenced to 5 years in prison and branded as terrorists for protecting their land and cattle and forced to “grant the BLM first right of refusal if the Hammonds ever sold their ranch.”

The Dark Side of Environmental Conservation

Environmental conservation is a good thing. But is that what is really being done by the BLM when it takes over land? Maybe what the BLM is actually doing is grabbing land in the name of environmental conservation and placing it under the sole control of the government and out of the hands of we the people in order to do with it as the government pleases.

The lands that the government collects are called “public lands.” The BLM is charged with managing “public lands,” and routinely leases and sells mineral rights on the very same lands that it is supposed to manage and protect.

BLM’s Planning Manual 1601 explains the use of public lands:

Land use plans ensure that the public lands are managed in accordance with the intent of Congress as stated in FLPMA (43 U.S.C. 1701 et seq.), i.e., under the principles of multiple use and sustained yield. As required by FLPMA, the public lands must be managed in a manner that protects the quality of scientific, scenic, historical, ecological, environmental, air and atmospheric, water resource, and archaeological values; that, where appropriate, will preserve and protect certain public lands in their natural condition; that will provide food and habitat for fish and wildlife and domestic animals; and that will provide for outdoor recreation and human occupancy and use by encouraging collaboration and public participation throughout the planning process. In addition, the public lands must be managed in a manner that recognizes the Nation’s need for domestic sources of minerals, food, timber, and fiber from the public lands.

http://www.blm.gov/pgdata/etc/medialib/blm/ak/aktest/planning/planning_general.Par.65225.File.dat/blm_lup_handbook.pdf

According to the BLM Planning Manual, the agency is charged with maintaining the ecological environment of its public lands. That is, of course, unless it decides that mining for uranium supersedes any such directive.

Uranium on BLM-Administered Lands in OR/WA

In September 2011, a representative from Oregon Energy, L.L.C. (formally Uranium One), met with local citizens, and county and state officials, to discuss the possibility of opening a uranium oxide (“yellowcake”) mine in southern Malheur County in southeastern Oregon. Oregon Energy is interested in developing a 17-Claim parcel of land known as the Aurora Project through an open pit mining method. Besides the mine, there would be a mill for processing. The claim area occupies about 450 acres and is also referred to as the “New U” uranium claims.

http://www.blm.gov/or/energy/uranium.php

This is conservation? Here is the open pit uranium mining proposal:

Uranium mine plan

Oregon Energy’s proposal calls for extracting ore from a mile-long, 600-foot wide, 250-foot deep open pit 10 miles west of McDermitt and 3 miles north of the Oregon-Nevada border. The mine, adjoining the former Bretz Mercury Mine, a contaminated open-pit site from the 1960s, would cost $200 million to develop and uranium extraction could continue for up to 20 years, said Oregon Energy President Lachlan Reynolds.

Plans call for the ore to be crushed and mixed with an acid solution in enclosed vats to leach out the uranium, he said. The acid would bond with the uranium and when dry become a sand-like powder called uranium oxide concentrate, or yellowcake. Yellowcake would bring $52 per pound and could fuel nuclear reactors or be processed into weapons.

Tuttle, spokesman for the Portland-based Center for Environmental Equity, foresees environmental problems.

The likelihood of sulfuric acid being used in READ THE REST

Problem: The government wants the land.

Reaction: Demonize cattle ranchers and blame the cattle for a decline in the sage grouse in order to free the land for alternate government use by pitting environmentalists against cattle grazing and the ranchers to gain the required reaction of placing the land under further restrictions in order to be protected from environmental harm.

Solution: The government gets the land.

The government wants the land for “conservation” efforts. In order to achieve this, the ranchers with their cattle and any private property interests need to go so that there is no interference. This way the land can be “protected” by the BLM and used for any purpose that the government wants it for, including uranium development.

The question then becomes – who will get the land – the sage grouse or uranium miners. In either case, the ranchers are out and the cattle can be consigned to your friendly neighborhood CAFO (concentrated animal feeding operation).

The rancher takes the blame, and the government does as it pleases. If the grouse is listed as an endangered species, the land is taken for conservation. If it isn’t, the land is taken for corporate energy and uranium mining. A win/win for big government. It’s called hedging your bets. Either way, the little guy loses and the government wins, and the rancher is left holding the bag. He either gets booted out by the sage grouse, or booted out by uranium interests, and there goes another source of local food and independence, leaving us ever more dependent on the corporate food chain.

Since a decision was made to not list the sage grouse as an endangered species in 2015, guess which interests won? You’ve got it – mining. Now the only problem left is to work out how to make the energy industry operations appear “beneficial” to the environment so as not to concern the sage grouse supporters, and to declare more public land as “cattle free,” again, for the benefit of the environment. Not a problem that a good Public Relations campaign can’t handle. Cha-Ching!

Wayne County Medical Examiner rules death of woman shot by Dearborn police a homicide (UPDATED)

Press & Guide

Yesterday’s fatal shooting of a 31-year-old Detroit woman by Dearborn police has been ruled a homicide by the Wayne County Medical Examiner’s office.

Janet Wilson was shot Wednesday afternoon by a Dearborn officer after driving erratically and allegedly trying to run over an officer on Hubbard Drive near the Southfield Freeway. Witnesses had reported Wilson acting strangely at nearby Fairlane Town Center and mall security was notified.

Michigan State Police Lt. Mike Shaw said the 31-year-old woman’s vehicle got stuck in traffic as she left the mall, and she tried to flee as officers approached.

Shaw says a Dearborn officer fired when the woman almost ran over an officer. Wilson died of multiple gunshot wounds and the officer was treated for non-life threatening injuries.

Dearborn Police Chief Ronald Haddad said both of the officer-involved shooting incidents are being independently criminally investigated by outside agencies, and that the department is committed to transparency and disclosure by fully cooperating with the investigations.

“Upon conclusion of the criminal investigations we will be conducting internal reviews on both of these incidents,” Haddad said. “While we are very proud of our long history of Civil Rights advocacy as well as our history of appropriate use of force, we will closely examine all of our policies and procedures to ensure that we are employing the latest training and following national best practices in all of our responsibilities to the community.

Once we are allowed and it is appropriate to do so, we fully intend to make public disclosures regarding these incidents.”

Tony Newbill on BLM Land Grab Conspiracy


Compiled by Tony Newbill

Edited by John R. Houk

Posted 1/24/16

Tony Newbill points out that the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is the bureau arm of the Executive Branch that has nefariously stolen land from farmer, ranchers and even miners in the Western USA to take the wealth out of private hands and into the hands of Big Brother. This is UNCONSTITUTIONAL!

You have to realize this stealth robbery conducted by the BLM affects and has affected ranchers and farmers for some time; however, the Bundy standoff in Nevada and the Bundy-led standoff centered around the Hammonds in Oregon have gotten the attention Western families.

Tony begins with the Oregon standoff which include two rather lengthy Youtube videos that recording of what was then live streaming of Pete Santilli’s web-show. It is apparent to me that Santilli is boldly trying to cover something that the Mainstream Media has for the most part ignored except to vilify the ranchers and that the Federal government has actually taken lengths to block the public from receiving the full picture of BLM land thievery.

The Voice of Idaho News (TVOI News)

Yesterday in a historic event, the Idaho III% dropped by the FBI stronghold in Burns, Oregon to introduce themselves and to explain to the heavily harmed agents, exactly what they were doing in Harney County. The first few minutes were tense as the surprised FBI agents sought to figure out what was going on.

TVOI News gives a standing salute to the Idaho III% for their boldness and to the FBI Agents for remaining calm in what was no doubt a first for them.

The video of the meeting was shot by Michael Emry, owner and cameraman for The Voice of Idaho News (TVOI News).

Property Clause

The Heritage Guide to The Constitution

The Congress shall have Power to dispose of and make all needful Rules and Regulations respecting the Territory or other Property belonging to the United States…. -ARTICLE IV, SECTION 3, CLAUSE 2

Teacher’s Companion Lesson (PDF)

The federal government owns or controls about thirty percent of the land in the United States. These holdings include national parks, national forests, recreation areas, wildlife refuges, vast tracts of range and wasteland managed by the Bureau of Land Management, reservations held in trust for Native American tribes, military bases, and ordinary federal buildings and installations. Although federal property can be found in every state, the largest concentrations are in the west, where, for example, the federal government owns over eighty percent of the land within Nevada.

The primary constitutional authority for the management and control of this vast real-estate empire is the Property Clause. The exact scope of this clause has long been a matter of debate. Broadly speaking, three different theories have been advanced.

The narrowest conception, which can be called the proprietary theory, maintains that the Property Clause simply allows Congress to act as an ordinary owner of land. It can set policy regarding whether such lands will be sold or retained and, if they are retained, who may enter these lands and for what purposes. Under this conception, the clause confers no political sovereignty over federal landholdings. Unless one of the enumerated powers of Article I applies, such as the power to raise armies or establish a post office, political sovereignty over federal lands remains with the several states in which the land is located.

The broadest conception, which can be called the police-power theory, regards the clause as conferring not only the powers of ownership but also general sovereign authority to regulate private conduct that occurs on federal land or that affects federal land. In default of any federal rule, state law applies. But if Congress determines that a federal rule “respecting” federal land is “needful,” it may adopt federal legislation that supersedes state law. Thus, the Property Clause gives Congress the authority to adopt any type of legislation for federal lands, including codes of criminal law, family law, and exemptions from state taxation for persons residing on federal lands.

Although most commentators have polarized around the proprietary and police-power theories, there is also an intermediate conception of the Property Clause, which can be labeled the protective theory. This conception would go beyond the proprietary theory in regarding the clause as a partial source of sovereign authority. But it would stop short of the police-power theory by limiting that authority to legislation designed to protect the proprietary interests of the United States. Under this intermediate conception, for example, the clause would permit Congress to pass federal legislation regulating the sale of federal land, protecting federal land from trespasses and nuisances, or exempting federal land from state taxation. On the other hand, the clause would not permit Congress to enact a general code of criminal law or family law, nor would it permit Congress to exempt persons residing on federal land from general rules of state taxation.

It is not certain which of these three theories corresponds with the original understanding of the Framers, inasmuch as the debates from the Constitutional Convention and the ratification process have little to say about the Property Clause. One clue is provided by the structure of the Constitution. Article I, which sets forth the enumerated powers of Congress, includes a specific grant of power over the governance of federal property. Article I, Section 8, Clause 17, known as the Enclave Clause, is plainly a grant of sovereign authority—indeed, exclusive sovereign authority—over the District of Columbia and other federal enclaves acquired with the consent of the state in which they are located.

Article I is the place where one would expect to find a grant of power to Congress to exercise political sovereignty over federal lands. Article IV, in contrast, which generally deals with issues of state-to-state relations (i.e., full faith and credit, privileges and immunities, extradition, repatriation of slaves, creation of new states, protection of states against invasion) would be an odd place to put such a power. Moreover, it is inconsistent with the careful drafting of the Constitution to assume that the Framers included two overlapping grants of sovereign political authority over federal lands. These structural considerations make it READ THE REST

The whole argument over State Rights vs Federal Government police state rights can be boiled down to the fact that the state has to agree to FORMAL CESSION of sovereignty of that land designated for Federal Policing and Formal would mean that the Public was made aware that this was going to happen and that state citizenry were in agreement of such Cession , and that be with Just Compensation, so the Question would be were these things done in Oregon, or any state that has experienced Malicious actions by a Federal agency that takes land away????

Please read the link: http://www.heritage.org/constitution/#!/articles/4/essays/126/property-clause

[Blog Editor: See above excerpt]

The whole argument over State Rights vs Federal Government police state rights can be boiled down to the fact that the state has to agree to FORMAL CESSION of sovereignty of that land designated for Federal Policing and Formal would mean that the Public was made aware that this was going to happen and that state citizenry were in agreement of such Cession, and that be with Just Compensation, so the Question would be were these things done in Oregon , or any state that has experienced Malicious actions by a Federal agency that takes land away????

These SEZ [Special Economic Zone] sites should have first formally been asked for by the federal Government through the process of Article 4 Section 3 Clause 2 and the states cession of said location be made with Just Compensation to the state, and or the state agree on its own to allow a SEZ into their state with just compensation to the state and management being done by state policy and activity.

[Blog Editor: When I first tried to understand the acronym “SEZ” the first thing I ran into was the “Special Economic Zone” I linked to in Tony’s above paragraph. Then I proceeded to Tony’s next link which is about Solar Energy Zones. As you can see “Solar Energy Zones” can use the acronym SEZ.

Apparently “Special Economic Zone” is a Communist China innovation. It began in China as a joint venture between the Communist government and Foreign Investors. The paradigm proved a very successful venture industrializing China into the current economic giant it is today. Here is a brief excerpt description:

Success is driven by China’s strategic balance of protectionism and economic liberalism; China’s investment policy and the regional development policy; and export-oriented growth and foreign economic policy.

Two strong features of the Chinese rapid economic development are the investment-driven and export-oriented growth, based on the Chinese government’s ability to formulate an effective industrial development policy while maintaining a favourable climate for foreign investment.

In order to attract Foreign Director Investment (FDI) without threatening the growth of domestic industries, China adopted measures that include:

– Regional industrial policies and export promotion strategies; – Development-oriented and sustainable FDI regimes that promote capital inflow, joint ventures between local firms and foreign investment; and, – Adoption of coherent strategies for Special Economic Zones.

Since the 1980s, Special Economic Zones were introduced in China through careful experimentation, notably starting in Guangdong Province where the remarkable story of Shenzhen was turned from what was once a fishing village into an ultra-modern industrial city.

This model has since been replicated over the last 35 years in other parts of China, turning the country from a previously agro-based economy into one that now derives about 90 percent of its income from industrial and service sectors.

China is already supporting Special Economic Zones in African countries such as Egypt, Ethiopia, Mauritius, Nigeria and Zambia. There are some lessons that can be drawn and adapted from China’s development experience. (Africa: The Role of Special Economic Zones in China’s Development Prospects for Africa; By Munetsi Madakufamba; allAfrica.com; 11/23/15)

As you can read in the above excerpt the focus is to bring SEZ success experienced by Communist China into fragmented Africa. As far as I know the SEZ paradigm has not worked in Africa. My guess is because the various national governments probably have too much corruption to attract lucrative foreign investors other than the special interests of Communist China. But what I am seeing is that the SEZ is working in nations that have stable governments of note is India and I have noticed some Eastern European nations.

My concern is Communist China has been establishing SEZs in the USA in which the foreign government of Communist China is the foreign investment and a cooperating American State is the local government:

What in the world is China up to? Over the past several years, the Chinese government and large Chinese corporations (which are often at least partially owned by the government) have been systematically buying up businesses, homes, farmland, real estate, infrastructure and natural resources all over America. In some cases, China appears to be attempting to purchase entire communities in one fell swoop. So why is this happening? Is this some form of “economic colonization” that is taking place? Some have speculated that China may be intending to establish “special economic zones” inside the United States modeled after the very successful Chinese city of Shenzhen. READ THE REST (Does China Plan To Establish “China Cities” And “Special Economic Zones” All Over America? By Michael Snyder; The Economic Collapse; 1/22/13)

Now I’m a bit suspicious of anything to do with Communism operating with government cooperation on American soil, BUT I think Tony Newbill is talking more about another SEZ – “Solar Energy Zone”. This kind of SEZ as you will read below, more about the Federal government usurping privately held land.]

Why Is the CIA Taking Over Burns, Oregon?

Submitted by IWB, on January 17th, 2016

Trust nobody! Personally verify everything.

The Ammon Bundy group, currently operating 30 miles outside of the Burns, Oregon, has been the victim of the most heinous and effective takeovers in the history of the media.

The Ammon Bundy group along with their presence in Oregon, threatens to expose a terrible agenda of oppression and governmental abuse being perpetrated against the American people and in particular the ranchers and the farmers in the West.

In an attempt to control the narrative, CNN and Fox News have been the only media organizations that have not either been physically taken down or neutralized through the infiltration by covert government operatives, many of them from the CIA.

To date, The Common Sense Show has been the only organization outside of Fox and CNN that has effectively covered the Ammon Bundy-Hammond Ranch controversy in a first-hand manner. And this coverage of the Hammond Ranch Affair did not occur without a severe price being paid by The Common Sense Show (CSS) and its related partners.

Katy Whelan, the Health Reporter for The Common Sense Show.

On Sunday, January 10, 2016, Katy Whelan, the health reporter for the CSS, made contact with a relative of Ammon Bundy. As many of you already know that both satellites that carry my show, the phone lines, the listen by phone option and all supportive operations of my satellite provider were taken down one minute before the scheduled interview was to begin. Adding legitimacy to this conspiracy to hide the truth behind the real events in Burns, Oregon, Ammon Bundy and his colleagues simultaneously had every form of their communications taken down at the same time. One would have to be one “helluva” coincidence theorist to not make this connection.

On the following day (January 11), the CSS and Ammon Bundy used alternative communication methods and we were able to get beyond censors of the federal government and produce the Dave Hodges/Sheila Zilinsky interview with Ammon Bundy. Below, is a link to this interview. It begins after 20 minutes into the show and lasts for almost 40 minutes. In this 40 minutes lies the only honest account, to date of what is really going on Burns and what Ammon Bundy and colleagues are really trying to accomplish.

Ammon Bundy, leading the way for the restoration of property rights for ranchers and Native Americans in the West.

LISTEN TO THE AMMON BUNDY INTERVIEW

The events are threatening to every American, not just ranchers and farmers in the West. The BLM and the EPA are starting with the ranchers and farmers but they are working their way towards all of us, even those of us who live in densely populated urban areas. All of us will soon become victims of this tyranny. The CSS will be exposing the full extent of this plot in a future article.

As an aside, when I became involved with the events in Burns, Oregon, Zuckerberg and his minions have banned me from Facebook.

The Plot to Silence the Independent Media

Pastors serving government over God.

Some involved Americans are keenly aware of how our churches have been compromised by the DHS’ plot to control pastors through the formation of the Clergy Response Team. Today, societal events that would have sent Christians into a tizzy a dozen years ago, go unprotested and largely unnoticed by Christian followers because many of the pastors are controlled by the DHS and are leveraged through tax exempt programs offered by the IRS which are designed to compromise the message of Christ. Well, the same thing is going on inside of the Independent Media.

The Cowboy’s Last Stand

Posted by Vicky Davis

Jan 16, 2016

TVOI News

I returned from Burns, Oregon last night discouraged and disappointed. Never let it be said that there was any premeditation or strategic planning for the events at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. Watching the events unfold as they have, the only conclusion that can be reached is that the occupation of Malheur Headquarters – or the Harney County Resource Center may well be known in history as The Cowboy’s Last Stand. They have the media event down pat but the back half… the planning for the “now what do we do” is demonstrably lacking as the events are rolling along ad hoc. At yesterday’s press conference – which I found out about literally two seconds before I was ready to leave town, we hear that Stephen E. Grasty is preventing the occupiers from using any county facilities for holding a town hall meeting. Now that’s a surprise.

Grasty McNasty is Boss Hawg of Harney County. He is both a County Commissioner and the County Judge at the same time. He has been doing everything in his power to assist the FBI in creating a climate of fear in the town of Burns. He had the chutzpah to tell the now former Harney County Fire Chief, Chris Briels that Briels was an old man who didn’t understand what was going on and that he was the one who was creating fear when he reported that it was FBI Agents in plain clothes who were skulking around the town armory and that they lied to him when he confronted them about it. It’s well known in urban areas that the FBI brings in agent provocateurs to cause trouble giving the killers with badges the justification for their actions when Americans have had enough and protest. Now the local police and the people of Harney County know it too.

Harney County Official- P. Runnels, D. Nichols & S. Grasly

It’s not hard to figure out why Grasty McNasty would have his olfactory appendage so far up the federal rectum. Federal money flows to the counties and there is no doubt that McNasty will be rewarded for being a quisling. The only question is how much will he get for himself. The pattern globally seems to be that public officials are paid $100,000 in cash for selling out their constituents. That’s an embarrassingly cheap price for what they are selling. Why would I mention the global pattern for public officials that sell out? Because the structure of the global economy – using the United States as the example, is that our corporations invest in foreign countries and the corporations of foreign countries invest in this country.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Constitution_Restoration_Act

The Constitution Restoration Act of 2005 (originally “of 2004”) is a proposed federal law filed on March 3, 2005 by United States Senator Richard Shelby (RAL) and Representative Robert Aderholt (R-AL). It is Senate Bill S 520 and House of Representatives bill H.R. 1070. It was originally drafted by Roy Moore and his attorney Herb Titus, former vice-presidential candidate of the Constitution Party, in 1996.[1][2]

The central statement of the bill is that, after passing, “the Supreme Court shall not have jurisdiction to review, by appeal, writ of certiorari, or otherwise, any matter to the extent that relief is sought against an entity of Federal, State, or local government, or against an officer or agent of Federal, State, or local government (whether or not acting in official or personal capacity), concerning that entity’s, officer’s, or agent’s acknowledgment of God as the sovereign source of law, liberty, or government.” In other words, the bill would limit the power of the federal judiciary specifically in religious liberty cases. The bill also states that judges or other court officials that listen to cases that meet said criteria are to be impeached and convicted.

Supporters of the bills, largely conservative Republicans, claim that the legislation re-asserts the original meaning of the First Amendment and the principle of limited government power over rights of conscience and religion.[2][3][4] Opponents of the bill have expressed concern that the bill would repeal the applicability of the First Amendment to state and local governments by rendering it impossible to appeal constitutionally questionable state decisions beyond the state level. The act has been viewed by critics as an attempt to advance the cause of Dominionism by conservative evangelical Christian Republicans.[5][6][7] Roy Moore, one of the original drafters of the bill, describes its purpose as:

“The purpose of the CRA is to restrict the appellate jurisdiction of the United States Supreme Court and all lower federal courts to that jurisdiction permitted them by the Constitution of the United States. The acknowledgment of God as the sovereign source of law, liberty, and government is contained within the Declaration of Independence which is cited as the ‘organic law’ of our Country by United States Code Annotated. The constitution of every state of the Union acknowledges God and His sovereignty, as do three branches of the federal government. The acknowledgment of God is not a legitimate subject of review by federal courts. The CRA also protects and preserves the Constitution of the United States by restricting federal courts from recognizing the laws of foreign jurisdictions and international law as the supreme law of our land.[1]

The bills were originally introduced in 2004 in both the U.S. House and the U.S. Senate, but languished in committee. Reintroduced at the beginning of the 2005 congressional session, they were read twice and referred to the Committee on the Judiciary, where they again languished. The Republican Study Committee, a caucus of conservative House members of the Republican Party, allegedly promoted the passage of “protections for religious freedom” as item #10 on their list of top ten legislative priorities of 2006. In early 2006 the proposal was endorsed by panels of both houses of the Idaho Legislature.[8] (Wikipedia; This page was last modified on 10 January 2016, at 19:06.)

This Gold Butte actually has quite a wild history of government trying to take the land, including closing the only post office in the area so that packages could not be delivered which put a real damper on things for those trying to live in the area. Another interesting bit of information is that the wiki page for Gold Butte Ghost Town was recently updated to reflect “new” changes to a page for a “ghost town”. Why would it need to be updated? Check out this video from Dutchsinse from last April (2015).

Check oldmarine1 for updates on this, he’s staying on top of breaking news regarding this: https://www.youtube.com/user/theoldmarine1
_______

We all remember the BLM / Bundy Ranch standoff which occurred in 2014.

Most people don’t know, the Nevada land grab was NOT about “cattle”. It was about Gold Butte, Nevada. Gold Butte is an old dormant butte volcano, and an old GOLD MINING TOWN which was shut down by the government between 1905 -1908. During World War 1 a large majority of the copper and silver used in the war came from around this location in Clark County Nevada.

Ironically, 100 years ago is the time where Bundy claims his family began ranching the area. It is odd that the families that stayed behind AFTER the government shut down the post office (on purpose shut down to cut off supply to the town…. turned out to be ranchers — and that was 100 years ago.

Bundy, an old man now in 2015 must have been passed down a “family secret” about the Gold deposits, silver deposits, and other precious metals in the ground at Gold Butte, NV.

The whole BLM land grab in 2014 was about Gold. Which is why Harry Reid wanted to strip mine the area and build a “solar farm” on Gold Butte after they level the mountainside and get the contents of the stripped surface and subsurface.

______

Gold Butte is located about 33 miles southeast of Glendale.

Mica was first discovered here in 1873, and then gold in 1905. By the next year, a post office was built. A gold rush in 1908 brought in more people, and the townsite now had a hotel, livery stable, post office, mercantile, and several residences. Another camp named Copper City was started two miles west at the site of the short-lived Lincoln copper mine.

By 1910 the gold rush was over and most mining operations ceased. No buildings remain, only a couple concrete slabs / foundations, two graves, and several old mine shafts.

Mining is thought to have begun in the 1700’s when the Spanish left remnants of their efforts in the form of arrastras. An arrastra is a large flat rock hollowed out over which a donkey would drag another rock to crush the ore. There are four known arrastras in the Gold Butte townsite area.

In the 1800’s mica was being mined and shipped from the area. Gold was discovered in 1906 and by 1907 Gold Butte was booming with a speculated population of 2,000. By 1909 the boom went bust and the post office was removed from the townsite of Gold Butte. Mining continued in the area as the Grand Gulch copper mine produced much of the needed copper for World War 1. The wagon trails that carried the copper to the St. Thomas railroad spur can still be followed to this day. The wagon masters’ signatures in wagon wheel axel grease tell the story on the sandstone walls of Mud Wash.

______

Now move forward to 2015, and we have Galice Oregon, and a repeat situation of the BLM coming in to a Gold mining town to seize land for their own use.

Again we have locals who mine the land, who have a miners claim (by law) on land that is public use.

Just like Nevada, Bundy, and Gold Butte, in Oregon we have Gold HILL nearby.

A butte and a hill could be considered very much similar. Nearby volcanoes at each location tell the tale of the rich mineral deposits which must exist at both locations in NV, and OR.

Alaska residents to get $1,884 payout from oil royalty fund

By Steve Quinn

September 17, 2014 5:16 PM

Yahoo News

JUNEAU Alaska (Reuters) – Nearly every Alaska resident will soon be $1,884 richer, thanks to an annual payout from an oil wealth trust fund that has been credited with keeping many low-income families out of poverty, state officials said on Wednesday.

More than 640,000 Alaska residents will receive the payment from The Alaska Permanent Fund next month, which Department of Revenue Commissioner Angela Rodell says is the third largest since the state began paying such sums in 1982 with a $1,000 check.

The sum is more than twice the $900 paid to each Alaska resident last year and more than the collective payments from each of the last two years. But it is still off from a high of $2,069 paid in 2008.

Alaska’s Permanent Fund was established by a constitutional amendment passed by voters in 1976 requiring a portion of state oil revenues be put into a savings account to be available for the distant future, when North Slope oil fields are tapped out.

Hammond Family

Pseudonymous Conspiracy blogger Tony Newbill sent me a series of news articles that makes a point based on how the Hammond family was railroaded by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) for arson wildfires and labeled as Right Wing terrorists by the Obama Administration’s Department of Justice (DOJ). Newbill uses the Hammond incident to show government manipulation, societal brainwashing, Left Wing transformation against American values and let me add that Obama continues to thumb his nose at the Original Intent of the U.S. Constitution.

Just as a little background to the BLM persecution of the Hammond family here is a Freedom Outpost excerpt that holds the government accountable unlike the mainstream media going out of its to sing the Obama Administration tune:

This story has been brewing for some time, but not gotten national attention, unlike the Bundy Ranch incident in 2014. The family of Dwight Hammond have come under the tyrannical eye of the federal government and now it appears that both Hammond and his son Steve are being railroaded for something that is a non-criminal act is being played out before their eyes. Word went out to citizen militias this week that the issue is a level 2 alert, meaning that militia members across the country need to be ready to deploy to Oregon to stand against federal tyrants who are seeking to wrongfully imprison two American citizens.

According to an October 7, 2015 press release from the Obama Department of Justice, Dwight Lincoln Hammond, Jr., 73, and his son, Steven Dwight Hammond, 46, both residents of Diamond, Oregon in Harney County, were sentenced to five years in prison by Chief U.S. District Judge Ann Aiken for arsons they committed on federal lands.

The men were charged nearly a decade after the first fire and five years after the second.

The jury in Pendleton, Oregon found the Hammonds guilty of the arsons after a two-week trial in June 2012. They were found guilty of arson on lands which they had grazing rights under Hammond Ranches, Inc., but which the unconstitutional Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is supposed to manage. The land is claimed as federal land, in clear violation of the Constitution.

… [U.S. District Judge Michael] Hogan did not believe the men had malicious intent to be labeled as terrorists under the Antiterrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act of 1996, even though he sentenced them to jail for the time he did.

Both men served their sentences and were released. Now, the feds have appealed those sentences and want the mandatory minimum five-year sentence imposed on the men, and so they appealed to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, who agreed with the feds that the judge ruled illegally. However, now they are wanting to label the Hammonds as terrorists under the 1996 law in order to put them back in jail.

However, what was not communicated in all of this is that the BLM starts these kinds of fires quite often and it actually benefits the land, though many times the BLM’s fires get completely out of control. Second, the fires that were started were not arson.

Dwight’s wife, Susan, said, “They called and got permission to light the fire… We usually called the interagency fire outfit – a main dispatch – to be sure someone wasn’t in the way or that weather wouldn’t be a problem.”

According to the Bundy Family, they point out that the Hammonds were simply engaging in what is commonly known as prescribed fires.

… The BLM also performs prescribed burns and have let it get out of control many times, but never has it cost any federal agent hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines and years of life in prison. The Hammonds prescribed a fire that moved to public land, they extinguished the fire themselves. The courts found that the burn increased vegetation for the following years, and had a positive impact on the land. With no authority or justification to prosecute, eleven years after the fire, federal attorneys have obtained judgment that the Hammonds are terrorists and must be punished severely for their actions.”

Published on Dec 5, 2015

This BLM fire reportedly killed more than 80 head of cattle. Put ranchers trying to save their cattle in extreme danger, injured other cattle, burnt homes and structures, burnt fences and power poles and threatened the town of Frenchglen.

These articles talk more about the BLM Setting Fires …..

BLM Burns Ranches and Destroys Cattle, but Ranchers Get Charged with Terrorism

I previously reported on the Hammond family, a family of ranchers in Oregon whose two patriarchs are being targeted in a government conspiracy to remove the ranchers from the land they have been on for decades. The family has been threatened by federal agents and fear for their lives. Now, the Bureau of Land Management is doing the very thing that the Hammonds did, which is burn off some of the land, only in the case of the BLM, they have killed more than 80 head of cattle, endangered the ranchers, injured other cattle, burnt homes and other structures such as fences and power poles and threatened an entire town! Yet, it is ranchers who are considered terrorists by the feds, not the BLM.

Ammon Bundy recently spoke out on the injustices and criminal activity of the BLM against the Hammond family.

Bundy claims that there was no due process, something that is specifically supposed to be protected under the Fifth Amendment of the US Constitution, and he went on to state that there was a tremendous amount of corruption involved in the sentencing, the re-sentencing and even in the present situation.

Bundy claims that he has confirmed that the Sheriff’s Office has been providing information to the FBI on the Hammonds and others, including Bundy and his family. He has also confirmed that the threats that the Hammond family received came from the US Attorney’s office. In fact, Bundy said that the threats claimed that if the Hammonds didn’t break off communication with Ammon Bundy, they would be detained early and incarcerated in a “less desirable prison.”

Bundy then went on to show a video of the BLM starting prescribed fires in July, something that normally doesn’t take place at that time as the animals the ranchers care for are usually eating the very grass that the BLM set on fire. However, the video shows that the BLM didn’t just burn grass. It killed and injured cattle, burned homes and destroyed other property. The video of land burning by BLM picks up around the 3:10 mark below. … [Blog Editor: The video referenced is from above.]

Not only did they start the fires, but as the video shows, there was no one tending to the fires at various times. Not only that, but as ranchers attempted to make a fire break with water trucks and equipment, the BLM agents were building a fire around them! In fact, video captured BLM agents lighting fires within 100 feet of the corrals and those taking the video! Talk about deliberate terrorist acts!

But the BLM won’t be held accountable for their actions. No sir. It’s the READ ENTIRETY

 

Former US Marine Put on Terror Watch List, Held At Gunpoint – Was it because he is helping the Oregon Ranchers?

This past week, radio show host and former US Marine Pete Santilli and his co-host Debra Jordan were arrested at gunpoint as they prepared for a trip out West to aid and cover the ongoing tyrannical saga involving the Hammonds, a ranching family that the government has targeted as terrorists and is planning to imprison the men of the family in January.

Santilli has been covering the Hammond Ranch family out in Oregon, who in a matter of weeks will be seeing the federal government engage in what amounts to double jeopardy against two men of their family. For a background on the Hammond story, click here, here and here.

Then witness video evidence of the Bureau of Land Management doing the exact same things the Hammonds are accused of without penalty.

In an exclusive interview with Freedom Outpost, Santilli told us that he was arrested last week. In the initial arrest, the policeman, who happens to be the Chief of Police for Newtown, Ohio, Thomas Synan, Jr. claimed the Santilli was impeding traffic, though that seems contradictory to how he put the two radio hosts under arrest, claiming that Santilli’s name and his vehicle was on the terror watchlist.

In a recording provided to Freedom Outpost by Santilli, you can hear Police Chief Synan claim that Santilli was impeding traffic by using his phone. Then he claims that Santilli was not wearing his seatbelt. According to Santilli, none of that was true. He had been using his electronic vapor and had merely picked up his cell phone to turn on recording once Sanyn [sic] began to pull him over.

Making It All Up

The behavioral sciences scandal

One morning in August, the social science reporter for National Public Radio, a man named Shankar Vedantam, sounded a little shellshocked. You couldn’t blame him.

Over 270 researchers, working as the Reproducibility Project, had gathered 100 studies from three of the most prestigious journals in the field of social psychology. Then they set about to redo the experiments and see if they could get the same results. Mostly they used the materials and methods the original researchers had used. Direct replications are seldom attempted in the social sciences, even though the ability to repeat an experiment and get the same findings is supposed to be a cornerstone of scientific knowledge. It’s the way to separate real information from flukes and anomalies.

The researchers, Vedantam glumly told his NPR audience, “found something very disappointing. Nearly two-thirds of the experiments did not replicate, meaning that scientists repeated these studies but could not obtain the results that were found by the original research team.”

“Disappointing” is Vedantam’s word, and it was commonly heard that morning and over the following several days, as the full impact of the project’s findings began to register in the world of social science. Describing the Reproducibility Project’s report, other social psychologists, bloggers, and science writers tried out “alarming,” “shocking,” “devastating,” and “depressing.”

But in the end most of them rallied. They settled for just “surprised.” Everybody was surprised that two out of three experiments in behavioral psychology have a fair chance of being worthless.

The most surprising thing about the Reproducibility Project, however​—​the most alarming, shocking, devastating, and depressing thing​—​is that anybody at all was surprised. The warning bells about the feebleness of behavioral science have been clanging for many years.

THINK POSITIVE

For one thing, the “reproducibility crisis” is not unique to the social sciences, and it shouldn’t be a surprise it would touch social psychology too. The widespread failure to replicate findings has afflicted physics, chemistry, geology, and other real sciences. Ten years ago a Stanford researcher named John Ioannidis published a paper called “Why Most Published Research Findings Are False.”

“For most study designs and settings,” Ioannidis wrote, “it is more likely for a research claim to be false than true.” He used medical research as an example, and since then most systematic efforts at replication in his field have borne him out. His main criticism involved the misuse of statistics: He pointed out that READ ENTIRETY (Making It All Up: The behavioral sciences scandal; By ANDREW FERGUSON; Weekly Standard; 10/19/15)

There Is A New Executive Order You Really Need to Know About

http://www.independentsentinel.com/there-is-a-new-executive-order-you-need-to-know-about/

Government agencies are preparing to collect more data on us thanks to a new executive order. They will use the data to “tweak” messaging and “nudge” the populace. They will use it to experiment on us.

Barack Obama issued an executive order Tuesday titled, Executive Order — Using Behavioral Science Insights to Better Serve the American People. Don’t be fooled by the “to better serve the American people” part. He has authorized experiments on the American public.

The first paragraph of the order says: A growing body of evidence demonstrates that behavioral science insights — research findings from fields such as behavioral economics and psychology about how people make decisions and act on them — can be used to design government policies to better serve the American people.

They say they are going to use the psychology and behavioral science to create policies that serve the American people. They are also going to develop strategies with it to message Americans on issues the government has taken on.

Government agencies will be encouraged to collect and preserve data on everyday Americans to use for their scientific research.

Barack Obama is already maintaining massive databases on every American, many of them by race.

Theuse of behavioral sciences by government agencies could lead to manipulation of the masses with government propaganda. We have already seen a number of warning signs.

The new HUD mandate, for one, is being encouraged with commercials.

The mandate is officially billed as the Affirmatively Affirming Fair Housing (AFFH) rule and it was finalized this week. It requires communities that take any federal grants to identify and eliminate deviations from mandated demographic and socioeconomic ratios and quotas.

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, and research purposes:

Prepare to be “nudged” by Obama’s new “behavioral science” squads — for your own good, of course. Under the guise of better “serving” the American people through government, Obama signed an executive order this week calling for federal agencies and departments to deploy emerging “behavioral science” techniques against the public.

Among other goals, the expansion of federal mind manipulation is supposed to help more Americans access government welfare programs, take their “recommended” vaccines, supply more information about themselves to the federal government, and accelerate the transition toward what Obama called “a low-carbon economy.” The controversial decree, signed on September 15, explicitly seeks to use “behavioral science” to prod Americans — or “nudge” them, as Obama’s “regulatory czar” Cass Sunstein put it — into making “choices” that the White House considers desirable.

Obama celebrated his plan to manipulate the minds of Americans as a means to advance a dizzying array of his controversial agendas to fundamentally transform America. “Adopting the insights of behavioral science will help bring our government into the 21st century in a wide range of ways — from …

The plan to more effectively use psychological manipulation against the public will be led by none other than John Holdren, Obama’s forced abortion-touting “science czar,” who formerly embraced global-cooling alarmism and predicted a billion deaths from a new ice age caused by human activity. Currently embroiled in multiple scandals and lawsuits surrounding his potentially unlawful use of a private e-mail account for official business and his statements blaming “global warming” for record cold, Holdren has perhaps one of the most troubling backgrounds of any top White House official. In his 1977 book Ecoscience, for instance, Holdren and his cohorts proposed drugging the food and water supply with sterilizing agents and creating a “planetary regime” with an armed force to control resources and the abortions and medical sterilization to deal with alleged overpopulation, and much more. Now he runs Obama’s White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, as well as the newly unveiled Social and Behavioral Sciences Team.

The first public information on Obama’s plan to use psychological operations to manipulate the American people came in 2013, when a document outlining the White House’s plans to create a “Behavioral Insights Team” and engage in “behavioral interventions” surfaced. The paper made clear that the purpose of manipulating the public was to “nudge” the U.S. population into thinking and behaving in ways that Obama officials deem best … READ ENTIRETY [Blog Editor Warning: My McAfee software warned of possible site problems.

Obama’s DHS Report Warns Of The Real Threat To America: Right-Wingers

http://dailycaller.com/2015/02/20/obamas-dhs-report-warns-of-the-real-threat-to-america-right-wingers/#ixzz3vX99nyi2

ISIS is marching across huge swaths of land in the Middle East, crucifying, beheading and burning alive untold numbers of human beings, and making direct threats against the United States.

But the Department of Homeland Security is making sure the government doesn’t take its eye off the real enemy – right-wingers.

CNN reports:

A new intelligence assessment, circulated by the Department of Homeland Security this month and reviewed by CNN, focuses on the domestic terror threat from right-wing sovereign citizen extremists.

The report cites “24 violent sovereign citizen-related attacks across the U.S. since 2010,” or as ISIS calls it, “a slow Tuesday morning.”

Without naming names, or citing any sources, CNN declares:

Some federal and local law enforcement groups view the domestic terror threat from sovereign citizen groups as equal to — and in some cases greater than — the threat from foreign Islamic terror groups, such as ISIS, that garner more public attention.​

While anyone committing crimes is an issue law enforcement should be concerned with, the threat from lunatic fringe “sovereign citizens” — people who reject government — pales in comparison to an organized and well-financed group of jihadi terrorists excited at the prospect of their own death in the course of killing “infidels.”

For 50 years the environmental movement has unsuccessfully argued that we should save the planet for moral reasons, that there were more important things than money. Ironically, it now seems it will be money — through the economic impact of climate change and resource constraint — that will motivate the sweeping changes necessary to avert catastrophe.

The reason is we have now reached a moment where four words — the earth is full — will define our times. This is not a philosophical statement; this is just science based in physics, chemistry and biology. There are many science-based analyses of this, but they all draw the same conclusion — that we’re living beyond our means.

The eminent scientists of the Global Footprint Network, for example, calculate that we need about 1.5 Earths to sustain this economy. In other words, to keep operating at our current level, we … (The Earth is full; By Paul Gilding; CNN; 4/8/12 Updated 9:39 AM ET)

Nina Fedoroff, science and technology adviser to Condoleezza Rice in the last administration and now to Hillary Clinton, tells the BBC that humans have exceeded the Earth’s “limits of sustainability.”

“We need to continue to decrease the growth rate of the global population; the planet can’t support many more people,” Fedoroff said. Meanwhile, we need to manage water and wild land better, she said.

There are currently 6.77 billion of us. Some time in October 2012 we’ll cross the 7 billion mark. There are 261 people born every minute. [more facts].

During remarks that she made for the 15th Anniversary of the International Conference on Population and Development, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced the launch of a new program that according to Clinton will now become the centerpiece of U.S. foreign policy. This new program is known as the Global Health Initiative, and it is being incredibly well-funded at a time when the U.S. government is drowning in debt. According to Clinton, 63 billion dollars will be spent by the U.S. to prevent pregnancies and to improve “family planning” services around the globe over the next six years. In other words, the new centerpiece of U.S. foreign policy is all about eugenics and population control.

The fourth is also in decline, however Saudi Arabia officially denies these claims but we know through Wiki-Leaks that this is indeed the case. We also know through history that all oil fields do peak in production, it is also evident in nation states. For example, the U.S. peaked in discoveries in 1930, 40 years later the U.S. peaked in production at 11.3 million barrels per day. Today we average less than 8 million barrels per day.

Controversial White House Office of Science and Technology Director John P. Holdren told CNS News earlier this week he would use “free market” principles to implement what he called a “massive campaign” to “de-develop the United States”.

As the “science czar”, Holdren deals with a wide range of issues, including health care and global warming.

In a book he co-authored in 1973 with Paul and Anne Ehrlich, he wrote, “A massive campaign must be launched to restore a high-quality environment in North America and to de-develop the United States”.

“De-development means bringing our economic system (especially patterns of consumption) into line with the realities of ecology and the global resource situation,” they wrote in Human Ecology: Problems and Solutions.

In 1995, Holdren, Paul Ehrlich and Gretchen Daily of Stanford University declared that we all needed to “face up” to “a world of zero net physical growth” that requires people consume less.

The three wrote an essay entitled, “The Meaning of Sustainability” in which they announced, “We know for certain, for example, that: No form of material growth (including population growth) other than asymptotic growth is sustainable.”

Exploring Newbill’s Renminbi Thoughts, Bail-ins & This is Bad- ‘China’s Renminbi Is Approved’


John R. Houk

© December 22, 2015

What is the global effect on Capitalist market economies when an avowed Communist dictatorial nation is welcomed as an elite currency in the global finance? It truly is something serious to ponder.

I can hear the hollering and cries now that the Cold War (U.S. led West vs. Communist USSR [and to a lesser extent China]) has been over since the Presidency of Ronald Reagan in the 1980s. In the case of the former Soviet Ruble and the Chinese Renminbi (aka yuan), no Communist nation ever achieved a financial rating as elite. Or at least that is until now.

The People’s Republic of China (i.e. Communist despotism) had its national currency the Renminbi declared an elite currency by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) in November 2015 (official elite start date October 2016). The Renminbi thus joins the American Dollar, the EU Euro, British Pound and Japanese Yen as a stable currency. This banks and nations can trade with the Red Chinese currency to add to reserves to back an economy. To place this in perspective check out this WaPo excerpt:

Here are a few things the four countries in the IMF’s current “basket” all have in common, beyond their exports and tradable currencies. They are all market democracies, with well-established property rights and rule of law; their achievement of those institutional advances preceded their becoming issuers of currencies dependable and liquid enough for other countries to use them as reserves. The notion of a Chinese-issued global reserve currency assumes that Beijing can essentially reverse-engineer such development, and the market confidence it inspired, in a communist nation founded and still operated on the basis of party-state control over everything from banks to courts. (Bold text is Blog Editor’s – China moves into the global currency elite; By Editorial Board; Washington Post; 12/2/15)

For all of Communist China’s strides in becoming the world’s second largest economy the fact remains it is a ONE-Party nation with property rights and the rule of Law are under the foundation of State controlled Marxist ideology which has morphed into Chinese Communism.

The pseudonymous writer Tony Newbill projects the feeling that the Renminbi will cause a bit of global financial instability as the Chinese currency becomes a reserve option threatening the stability of the Dollar, Euro, Pound and Yen. I think he is on to something as evidenced by the Islamic Supremacist dictatorship of Sudan and the Communist dictatorship of North Korea will now have greater capability of trading in Renminbi in making deals with transnational terrorists thus avoiding restrictions and sanctions from nations that use the Dollar, Euro, Pound and Yen. AND that is just one example.

In introducing an article from the NYT Newbill provokes your thinking toward the West’s banking reformation involving how the Western governments address financial crises when banks begin to fail due to bad investments, especially in the case of transnational giant too big to fail banks. Instead of using the bailout path, the G20 nations have imposed a banking rule (See Also HERE) involving Bail-inabled Bonds. Hence the term Bail-in instead of a taxpayer supported government Bailout.

Since I am not exactly a big depositor in any bank I was somewhat clueless on the difference between a Bailout and a Bail-in. To comprehend the NYT article Newbill sent me to post, I had to read up on what the heck a bail-in entailed.

Here is a just over a minute explanation of the difference between a Bailout and Bail-in:

New G20 Rules: Cyprus-style Bail-ins to Hit Depositors AND Pensioners

By Ellen Brown

December 1, 2014

The Web of Deceit Blog

On the weekend of November 16th, the G20 leaders whisked into Brisbane, posed for their photo ops, approved some proposals, made a show of roundly disapproving of Russian President Vladimir Putin, and whisked out again. It was all so fast, they may not have known what they were endorsing when they rubber-stamped the Financial Stability Board’s “Adequacy of Loss-Absorbing Capacity of Global Systemically Important Banks in Resolution,” which completely changes the rules of banking.

Russell Napier, writing in ZeroHedge, called it “the day money died.” In any case, it may have been the day deposits died as money. Unlike coins and paper bills, which cannot be written down or given a “haircut,” says Napier, deposits are now “just part of commercial banks’ capital structure.” That means they can be “bailed in” or confiscated to save the megabanks from derivative bets gone wrong.

Rather than reining in the massive and risky derivatives casino, the new rules prioritize the payment of banks’ derivatives obligations to each other, ahead of everyone else. That includes not only depositors, public and private, but the pension funds that are the target market for the latest bail-in play, called “bail-inable” bonds.

“Bail in” has been sold as avoiding future government bailouts and eliminating too big to fail (TBTF). But it actually institutionalizes TBTF, since the big banks are kept in business by expropriating the funds of their creditors.

It is a neat solution for bankers and politicians, who don’t want to have to deal with another messy banking crisis and are happy to see it disposed of by statute. But a bail-in could have worse consequences than a bailout for the public. If your taxes go up, you will probably still be able to pay the bills. If your bank account or pension gets wiped out, you could wind up in the street or sharing food with your pets.

In theory, US deposits under $250,000 are protected by federal deposit insurance; but deposit insurance funds in both the US and Europe are woefully underfunded, particularly when derivative claims are factored in. The problem is graphically illustrated in this chart from a March 2013 ZeroHedge post:

Chart Comparison

 

More on that after a look at the new bail-in provisions and the powershift they represent.

Bail-in in Plain English

The Financial Stability Board (FSB) that now regulates banking globally began as a group of G7 finance ministers and central bank governors organized in a merely advisory capacity after the Asian crisis of the late 1990s. Although not official, its mandates effectively acquired the force of law after the 2008 crisis, when the G20 leaders were brought together to endorse its rules. This ritual now happens annually, with the G20 leaders rubberstamping rules aimed at maintaining the stability of the private banking system, usually at public expense.

According to an International Monetary Fund paper titled “From Bail-out to Bail-in: Mandatory Debt Restructuring of Systemic Financial Institutions”:

[B]ail-in . . . is a statutory power of a resolution authority (as opposed to contractual arrangements, such as contingent capital requirements) to restructure the liabilities of a distressed financial institution by writing down its unsecured debt and/or converting it to equity. The statutory bail-in power is intended to achieve a prompt recapitalization and restructuring of the distressed institution.

The language is a bit obscure, but here are some points to note:

o What was formerly called a “bankruptcy” is now a “resolution proceeding.” The bank’s insolvency is “resolved” by the neat trick of turning its liabilities into capital. Insolvent TBTF banks are to be “promptly recapitalized” with their “unsecured debt” so that they can go on with business as usual.

o “Unsecured debt” includes deposits, the largest class of unsecured debt of any bank. The insolvent bank is to be made solvent by turning our money into their equity – bank stock that could become worthless on the market or be tied up for years in resolution proceedings.

o The power is statutory. Cyprus-style confiscations are to become the law.

o Rather than having their assets sold off and closing their doors, as happens to lesser bankrupt businesses in a capitalist economy, “zombie” banks are to be kept alive and open for business at all costs – and the costs are again to be to borne by us.

The Latest Twist: Putting Pensions at Risk with “Bail-Inable” Bonds

First they came for our tax dollars. When governments declared “no more bailouts,” they came for our deposits. When there was a public outcry against that, the FSB came up with a “buffer” of securities to be sacrificed before deposits in a bankruptcy. In the latest rendition of its bail-in scheme, TBTF banks are required to keep a buffer equal to 16-20% of their risk-weighted assets in the form of equity or bonds convertible to equity in the event of insolvency.

Called “contingent capital bonds”, “bail-inable bonds” or “bail-in bonds,” these securities say in the fine print that the bondholders agree contractually (rather than being forced statutorily) that if certain conditions occur (notably the bank’s insolvency), the lender’s money will be turned into bank capital.

However, even 20% of risk-weighted assets may not be enough to prop up a megabank in a major derivatives collapse. And we the people are still the target market for these bonds, this time through our pension funds.

In a policy brief from the Peterson Institute for International Economics titled “Why Bail-In Securities Are Fool’s Gold”, Avinash Persaud warns, “A key danger is that taxpayers would be saved by pushing pensioners under the bus.”

It wouldn’t be the first time. As Matt Taibbi noted in a September 2013 article titled “Looting the Pension Funds,” “public pension funds were some of the most frequently targeted suckers upon whom Wall Street dumped its fraud-riddled mortgage-backed securities in the pre-crash years.”

Wall Street-based pension fund managers, although losing enormous sums in the last crisis, will not necessarily act more prudently going into the next one. All the pension funds are struggling with commitments made when returns were good, and getting those high returns now generally means taking on risk.

Other than the pension funds and insurance companies that are long-term bondholders, it is not clear what market there will be for bail-in bonds. Currently, most holders of contingent capital bonds are investors focused on short-term gains, who are liable to bolt at the first sign of a crisis. Investors who held similar bonds in 2008 took heavy losses. In a Reuters sampling of potential investors, many said they would not take that risk again. And banks and “shadow” banks are specifically excluded as buyers of bail-in bonds, due to the “fear of contagion”: if they hold each other’s bonds, they could all go down together.

Whether the pension funds go down is apparently not of concern.

Propping Up the Derivatives Casino: Don’t Count on the FDIC

Kept inviolate and untouched in all this are the banks’ liabilities on their derivative bets, which represent by far the largest exposure of TBTF banks. According to the New York Times:

American banks have nearly $280 trillion of derivatives on their books, and they earn some of their biggest profits from trading in them.

These biggest of profits could turn into their biggest losses when the derivatives bubble collapses.

Both the Bankruptcy Reform Act of 2005 and the Dodd Frank Act provide special protections for derivative counterparties, giving them the legal right to demand collateral to cover losses in the event of insolvency. They get first dibs, even before the secured deposits of state and local governments; and that first bite could consume the whole apple, as illustrated in the above chart.

The chart also illustrates the inadequacy of the FDIC insurance fund to protect depositors. In a May 2013 article in USA Today titled “Can FDIC Handle the Failure of a Megabank?”, Darrell Delamaide wrote:

[T]he biggest failure the FDIC has handled was Washington Mutual in 2008. And while that was plenty big with $307 billion in assets, it was a small fry compared with the $2.5 trillion in assets today at JPMorgan Chase, the $2.2 trillion at Bank of America or the $1.9 trillion at Citigroup.

. . . There was no possibility that the FDIC could take on the rescue of a Citigroup or Bank of America when the full-fledged financial crisis broke in the fall of that year and threatened the solvency of even the biggest banks.

That was, in fact, the reason the US Treasury and the Federal Reserve had to step in to bail out the banks: the FDIC wasn’t up to the task. The 2010 Dodd-Frank Act was supposed to ensure that this never happened again. But as Delamaide writes, there are “numerous skeptics that the FDIC or any regulator can actually manage this, especially in the heat of a crisis when many banks are threatened at once.”

All this fancy footwork is to prevent a run on the TBTF banks, in order to keep their derivatives casino going with our money. Warren Buffett called derivatives “weapons of financial mass destruction,” and many commentators warn that they are a time bomb waiting to explode. When that happens, our deposits, our pensions, and our public investment funds will all be subject to confiscation in a “bail in.” Perhaps it is time to pull our money out of Wall Street and set up our own banks – banks that will serve the people because they are owned by the people.

China’s Renminbi Is Approved by I.M.F. as a Main World Currency

By KEITH BRADSHER

NOV. 30, 2015

New York Times (INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS)

NY Times VIDEO: Chinese Currency Named as a World Reserve

http://graphics8.nytimes.com/video/players/offsite/index.html?videoId=100000004065542

 

By REUTERS | Nov. 30, 2015 | 0:52

Christine Lagarde, the managing director of the International Monetary Fund, announces that China’s renminbi will become a world reserve currency alongside the dollar, euro, pound and yen.

HONG KONG — The Chinese renminbi was anointed as one of the world’s elite currencies on Monday, a milestone decision by the International Monetary Fund that underscores the country’s rising financial and economic heft.

The move will help pave the way for broader use of the renminbi in trade and finance, securing China’s standing as a global economic power. Just four other currencies — the dollar, the euro, the pound and the yen — have the I.M.F. designation.

But the path to the I.M.F. decision, a bumpy process that stretches back years, also introduced new uncertainty into China’s economy and financial system.

To meet the I.M.F. requirements, China was forced to give up some of its tight control over the currency, culminating in the abrupt devaluation of the renminbi that shook global markets in August. The changes could inject fresh volatility into the country, at a time when its economy is already slowing.

The I.M.F. designation, an accounting unit known as the special drawing rights, bestows global importance.

Renminbi, also called yuan, gains a benchmark status.

Many central banks follow this benchmark in measuring their reserves, which countries hold to help protect their economies in times of trouble. By adding the renminbi to this group, the I.M.F. effectively says that it considers the currency to be safe, reliable and freely usable.

It is a “recognition of the progress that the Chinese authorities have made in the past years in reforming China’s monetary and financial systems,” Christine Lagarde, the managing director of the I.M.F., said in a statement in Washington. “The continuation and deepening of these efforts will bring about a more robust international monetary and financial system, which in turn will support the growth and stability of China and the global economy.”

The designation is a point of pride for Beijing, which had made it one of its highest economic policy priorities.

In the months before the fund’s decision, China moved aggressively to expand the currency’s standing on a global stage, building trading hubs in Europe and developing a raft of renminbi-denominated bonds and commodity contracts. In devaluing the currency, China changed the way it sets the value of the renminbi each morning, allowing market forces to play a bigger role.

The I.M.F. decision also says a lot about the waning influence of Europe: The renminbi is mainly replacing part of the euro’s role in the special drawing rights. Assessing currencies for the accounting system, the fund put a greater emphasis on their different roles in international finance. The dollar still dominates in finance and trade, while the renminbi is quickly gaining ground on the euro.

The United States Treasury said it “supported” the I.M.F. decision.

Besides its symbolic weight, the I.M.F. label, which will take effect at the end of September next year, carries specific benefits. The renminbi will become one of the currencies used in the disbursement and repayment of international bailouts denominated in the fund’s accounting unit, like Greece’s debt deal.

The renminbi’s new status “will improve the international monetary system and safeguard global financial stability,” President Xi Jinping of China said in mid-November.

While the renminbi may gain favor internationally, the I.M.F. designation does not mean that China’s economic overhaul is complete. China maintains heavy regulatory control over the country’s financial system. The country also falls short in legal protections, with the Communist Party continuing to play a strong role in deciding court cases.

Such issues could limit the overall appeal of the renminbi — and China’s ambitions.

“It is a historic moment in international finance for an emerging market economy, with a per-capita income barely a quarter that of other reserve currency economies, to be anointed as the issuer of one of the world’s major reserve currencies,” said Eswar Prasad, a former head of the I.M.F.’s China division who is now the Tolani Senior Professor of Trade Policy at Cornell University. But “the most likely scenario is that the renminbi will erode but not seriously rival the dollar’s status as the dominant global reserve currency.”

The changing currency dynamics also create new geopolitical concerns.

As the renminbi becomes more deeply woven into the global economy, it undermines the ability of the West to impose financial sanctions on countries accused of human rights abuses and other violations, like Sudan and North Korea. Such countries can increasingly carry out transactions in renminbi.

China contends that it is crucial to respect nations’ sovereignty and that leaders should be allowed to set policy without fearing international criticism or intervention. China remains a close business and financial partner of Sudan and North Korea. Mr. Xi invited the president of Sudan to a recent military parade in Beijing.

Lamido Sanusi, the governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, said in 2010 it was ready to put up to a tenth of its entire reserves into renminbi, or $4 billion

“As the renminbi rises, countries will have more choices about where they do their banking — and how to potentially circumvent sanctions,” said Christopher Brummer, a Georgetown University law professor specializing in currencies.

Beijing’s effort to position the renminbi as a rival to the dollar traces back to the innocuously named “Document 217.”

The Chinese central bank posted the document on its website with little fanfare in August 2010. But buried in the document’s technical jargon was an important measure with global implications.

Under a new rule, China would start allowing other countries’ central banks to begin buying its bonds in Shanghai. Officials in other countries just had to get permission first from the People’s Bank of China.

Nigeria was paying close attention. Lamido Sanusi, the governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, had already been mulling whether to park part of the country’s $40 billion in foreign exchange reserves in renminbi.

A prominent Islamic scholar, he was the son of an influential Nigerian prince who served as his country’s ambassador to China during the Cultural Revolution. Back then, his father advocated a shift by Africa away from Western dominance and toward closer relations with China.

When Mr. Sanusi became the central bank chief in 2009, Nigeria had extensive trade ties with China. In shifting a portion of reserves, he bet — correctly, as it turned out — that the renminbi would appreciate. Interest rates on renminbi-denominated bonds were also several percentage points higher than yields on comparable Treasuries.

Inclusion of the renminbi in the I.M.F.’s elite reserve currency group was so important to China’s leaders that they named it in October as one of their highest economic policy priorities in the coming years. CreditAgence France-Presse — Getty Images

Nigeria started purchasing large sums of renminbi in the little-regulated Hong Kong market in 2010, rather than Shanghai as the Chinese rules prescribed, and without seeking Beijing’s permission. Mr. Sanusi then stunned the Chinese government by mentioning at a conference a few weeks later in Nigeria’s capital, Abuja, that his country was ready to put up to a tenth of its entire reserves, or $4 billion, into renminbi.

“The Chinese Embassy came over and met me,” said Mr. Sanusi, who last year was crowned Emir Muhammadu Sanusi II, the traditional and religious leader of Kano State in northern Nigeria. “They just wanted to have clarity.”

Chinese officials, he said, were pleased that a major trading partner in Africa liked the renminbi. But Nigeria’s move also posed a dilemma. Large-scale purchases of renminbi by overseas central banks would make it more difficult for China to prevent the renminbi from appreciating, which in turn would make exports less competitive.

When Nigeria eventually requested permission to buy bonds in Shanghai, the Chinese central bank agreed, although it tightly capped the purchases. “We got something less than what we applied for,” said Lamido Yuguda, the director of reserve management at the Central Bank of Nigeria, declining to provide precise figures. “It was something we could live with.”

After the experience with Nigeria, China moved slowly and cautiously on further currency liberalization over the next four years. The government did not encourage other central banks to buy large sums of renminbi. Instead, China entered into a series of swap agreements with dozens of countries like Australia, Brazil, South Africa, Germany and Iceland.

Under these agreements, China said it would provide billions of renminbi if the other country needed them in a crisis. But China would keep the renminbi until that point, so that any interim purchases would not be sufficient to push up the value of the currency.

Beijing’s cautious strategy backfired this year, when China ramped up its campaign for I.M.F. reserve status. One of the I.M.F.’s main considerations is that the currency be “freely usable.”

The People’s Bank of China acknowledged last spring that other central banks held a modest $108 billion worth of renminbi, about 1 percent of total foreign exchange holdings by central banks. By contrast, central banks had $500 billion worth of swap agreements to obtain renminbi, more than for any other currency, including the dollar.

Beijing lobbied hard through the spring to persuade the I.M.F. to consider the swaps as evidence that the renminbi was “freely usable.” But the United States and other countries opposed bending I.M.F. rules.

The fund decided during the summer to stick to more traditional criteria, like the amount of currency that central banks had been able to buy and how easily the renminbi could be traded. After that, the I.M.F. pressed the Chinese central bank to make its currency more responsive to market forces.

China had to move fast. After this year, the next chance to push the renminbi into the fund’s accounting system would not come until 2020.

During the summer, Chinese officials made a series of rapid-fire moves, most notably devaluing the currency by 4.4 percent against the dollar as part of a new method for setting the daily trading range of the renminbi. The process would give the market more influence over the daily value of the renminbi, which is set each morning by the central bank.

The aftermath of the devaluation has been a shock to China’s system, providing a window into the uncertainty the country now faces with a more globally oriented currency.

After the devaluation, many Chinese companies moved to pay off foreign debts for fear the renminbi would fall further. Investors also sold huge sums of renminbi and switched into other currencies. China’s central bank spent nearly $100 billion in August alone to prop up the renminbi.

“Making it more market-based makes it more difficult to manage,” said Larry Hu, the chief China economist in the Hong Kong office of Macquarie Capital Securities. “But making it more market-based also makes it more efficient.

Hat Tip: Tony Newbill

November 23, 2015

It has been some time since contributor pseudonym Tony Newbill has sent something to dig my teeth into. Tony usually deals with Conspiracy Theory issues; however this time it seems his email is a bit closer to Conspiracy rather than Theory.

The first link in the email is to a Youtube video of Ben Swann talking about proof obtained from Judicial Watch that the Obama Administration was instrumental in creating the viability of the Islamic terrorist organization ISIS/Daesh.

Benjamin “Ben” Swann (born July 17, 1978) is an American journalist. He has worked in New Mexico, Texas and Ohio.[1] While at WXIX-TV in Cincinnati, Ohio, he produced a fact-checking series entitled Reality Check, which gave him national coverage for his reporting about controversial issues. Swann announced he was leaving WXIX-TV on May 31, 2013,[2]and on May 30, 2013, he said he would launch a crowd source funded “Truth In Media” to continue production of his show through a Chicago production team.[3] In June 2015, he joined CBS46 (WGCL-TV) in Atlanta as evening news anchor.[4] READ THE REST (Ben Swann; Wikipedia; This page was last modified on 11/13/15 00:08)

Published by Ben Swann

Published on Nov 19, 2015

There is so much debate over how the U.S. and other nations will stop ISIS but can these leaders be trusted? Ben Swann exposes secret DOD documents that prove the U.S. wanted ISIS to emerge in Syria.

And now to the next link in the Tony Newbill. The link is to an Inquisitor news story by Louis Babcock about how ISIS is using an addictive pill called Captagon. Evidently the Captagon has been around for some time. According to the Inquisitor article it gives one the euphoric feeling of invincibility.

For a history of Captagon’s original purpose Wikipedia has a good article. There you discover the scientific name is Fenethylline (or variations thereof). Apparently that which it was designed for has fallen out effective viability. These days the big money in Captagon production is in the illegal drug trade especially in the Middle East.

Captagon pills are displayed along with a cup of cocaine at an office of the Lebanese Internal Security Forces (ISF), Anti-Narcotics Division in Beirut on June 11, 2010. (Credit: JOSEPH EID/AFP/Getty Images)

Here is some excerpts from a Forbes article that provides a clear present day application:

This week brought a wave of articles about the drug Captagon— it’s being billed as the drug that’s fueling Syria’s bloody war. But Captagon is far from new, it isn’t the first time it’s been in the news, and the problem is bigger than Syria. Here’s what you need to know.

What is Captagon?

Captagon is one of several brand names for the drug compound fenethylline hydrochloride. Captagon is not a new drug. The Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Encyclopedia places its debut in 1961, when it was manufactured by Chemiewerk Homburg, a subsidiary of specialty chemicals company Degussa. The patent for its production dates to 1962, according to the Merck Index.

How does Captagon work?

Captagon is in the family of drugs known as amphetamines. These drugs are human-made but are chemically related to natural neurotransmitters like dopamine and epinephrine (aka adrenaline). When a person takes Captagon, their metabolism breaks the drug down to amphetamine itself, as well as to theophylline, a molecule that naturally occurs in small amounts in tea and that also has cardiac stimulating activity.

Amphetamine drugs stimulate the central nervous system, increasing alertness, boosting concentration and physical performance, and providing a feeling of well-being. In a BBC Arabic documentary that premiered earlier this fall, users described the intensity of a Captagon high to filmmakers in no uncertain terms: “I felt like I own the world, high,” one said. “Like I have power nobody has. A really nice feeling.” And another had this to say: “There was no fear anymore after I took Captagon.”

… But by the 1980s the medical community had determined that Captagon’s addictive properties outweighed its clinical benefits. At that point it was banned in most countries. Long-term amphetamine users can suffer from side effects such as extreme depression, sleep deprivation, heart and blood vessel toxicity, and malnutrition, according to the National Criminal Justice Reference Service.

… Making Captagon takes “only basic knowledge of chemistry and a few scales,” Lebanese psychiatrist Ramzi Haddad told Reuters. And apparently Captagon has enough brand recognition that counterfeit pills are commonly found in authorities’ drug seizures. One analysis of fake Captagon found no fenethylline hydrochloride (the true active ingredient). …

… Captagon means big money for Syria- a major producer of the drug. READ ENTIRETY (What You Need To Know About Captagon, The Drug Of Choice In War-Torn Syria; By Carmen Drahl; Forbes; 11/21/15 05:01 AM)

Syrian War Drug: What Effects Does This Drug Have On Fighters In Syria? [Video]

 

By Louis Babcock

November 20, 2015

Inquisitor

A Syrian war drug is turning fighters in Syria into soldiers with almost superhuman abilities. The drug is call Captagon. Captagon is a potent amphetamine tablet and is considered highly addictive. When taken, Syrian fighters are able to stay awake for multiple days, and it also allows them to kill with recklessness. The drug also affects the mind in such a way that Syrian fighters feel nothing when they kill someone. Captagon essentially makes the person numb to any of the feelings a person would get when killing another human. The BBC was doing a documentary in September, and three men who have used the drug spoke about how it made them feel.

“You can’t sleep or even close your eyes, forget about it. And whatever you take to stop it, nothing can stop it.”

“I felt like I own the world high. Like I have power nobody has. A really nice feeling.”

“There was no fear anymore after I took Captagon.”

Syria’s War Drug: A look inside production of Captagon, the powerful amphetamine being used by soldiers in Syria. … There is more related to Journeyman Pictures

In 2014, Reuters did a report on how the Syrian war has turned Syria into a major drug producer in the region. An excerpt from the Reuters report is below.

“Syrian government forces and rebel groups each say the other uses Captagon to endure protracted engagements without sleep, while clinicians say ordinary Syrians are increasingly experimenting with the pills, which sell for between $5 and $20.”

A drug control officer spoke about what he has seen in people who have used the drug.

“We would beat them, and they wouldn’t feel the pain. Many of them would laugh while we were dealing them heavy blows. We would leave the prisoners for about 48 hours without questioning them while the effects of Captagon wore off, and then interrogation would become easier.”

Captagon started to be used medically in the 1960s. The drug was used in treating hyperactivity, sleep disorders, and depression. Due to the potency and addictiveness of Captagon, a ban was placed on it only 20 years later. In the United States, Captagon is considered a Schedule I drug.

Masood Karimipour, the U.N. Office on Drugs and Crime regional representative, spoke with Voice Of America about the Syrian drug.

“Syria is a tremendous problem in that it’s a collapsed security sector, because of its porous borders, because of the presence of so many criminal elements and organized networks. There’s a great deal of trafficking being done of all sorts of illicit goods — guns, drugs, money, people. But what is being manufactured there and who is doing the manufacturing, that’s not something we have visibility into from a distance.”

The illegal drug trade, specifically, Captagon, has enabled millions of dollars to be brought into Syria. The money from the illegal drug business has allowed Syrian fighters to get access to better weapons. Turkey has put a dent in the Captagon trade. On the border of Turkey and Syria, Turkey officials were able to obtain 11 million tablets of Captagon. The 10.9 million tablets hold a value of between $55 million and $220 million. The 10.9 million tablets were confiscated in two different raids. In the first raid, Turkey was able to capture 7.3 million tablets while Turkey captured 3.6 million tablets in the second raid. The pills were going to be smuggled out to the countries in the Persian Gulf.

Even though the drug is becoming popular among Syrian fighters, Saudi Arabia is still the main importer. According to Reuters, seven tons of Captagon were imported into Saudi Arabia in 2010. It is said that up to 50,000 Saudis end up in drug treatment each year from the use of Captagon.

Is this Syrian war drug going to become a bigger problem in the Syria conflict? With Syrian refugees flooding into Europe, will we begin to see Captagon use increase there?

Setting-up Newbill’s Market Collapse & Eco-Marxist Warnings


New World Order

 
John R. Houk
© May 22, 2015
 
The pseudonymous Tony Newbill left two comments that had very little to do with his comment line of thinking to the post “New Anti-Semitic Film All the Rage in Turkey”. That post was about a Jew-hatred film circulating Turkey that the Turkish government endorses more than repudiates.
 
Newbill’s comments center around a wealth management product being promoted that promises a plan that will help Joe American to develop a strategy to remain solvent after a global Leftist elites set in course an economic collapse that will trigger a 25 year economic depression. The second Newbill comment are his thoughts about Eco-Marxists utilizing a Climate Change ideology that is designed for the emergence of a Central Government management of society that will suppress basic Liberties Americans take for granted. This Climate Change ideology INCLUDES a forced depopulation agenda.
 
The second Newbill comment is fairly understandable with Newbill links which include –cough- TED Talk propaganda clips. The first Newbill comment I think needs a bit more elaboration or at least I thought so since I have never heard of the CIA’s Project Prophecy used to predict future catastrophes.
 
When I first started search engine explorations of the existence of a CIA program called Project Prophecy I was a bit concerned all links seemed to point to Jim Rickards as a CIA inside-man that worked on the original Project Prophecy. All those links are all about the marketing video Tony Newbill links to either as part of marketing promotion or from Conspiracy Theory websites that fact-minded people tend to pooh-pooh because of the source.
 
In that search I actually found a Youtube version of marketing version produced though by the company marketing Project Prophecy 2.0 which claims to utilized the old CIA tools for personal wealth management in a dangerous and gloomy future economy. I will post that Youtube video (about 45 minutes) if you wish to watch the whole thing. It actually is quite interesting. For those of you who desire a shorter taste of Money Morning video here is a 16 minute examination of the Rickard assertions including short clips from the original that doesn’t endorse the Project Prophecy 2.0 findings but neither does it refute.
 
 

 
Published by Lisa Haven
Published on Nov 12, 2014
 
I did find a non-marketing blog who calls himself COGwriter (a pseudonym for Bob Thiel) a Ph.D. holder and a Pastor in the Continuing Church of God (CCOG). Some people (including myself) may question some of Bob Thiel’s theology, but I believe his focus on Denominational theological matters separates himself from the typical Conspiracy Theorists pooh-poohed by the show-me-the-facts-Jack individual. So here are some insights COGwriter’s blog Church of God News:
 
A reader sent me a link to a video about something called ‘Project Prophecy’ and the view of a former participant, Jim Rickards (who says he once worked for the CIA) who believes that the USA is going to end up with the collapse of the USA dollar as the world’s reserve currency and that it is subject to a 25 year depression.  He also advocated books, lectures, a newsletter, and other things that I did not purchase, nor am I promoting them here.
 
 
Here is some information from a related website about ‘Project Prophecy’:
 
Project Prophecy was to develop a system or systems that could in effect foretell a terrorist act in the United States or world wide by looking for anomalous stock market trades that would profit heavily by betting on an unforeseen (to most) terrorist event to occur. For instance, if a peculiar or odd amount of trades were placed saying that the stock of a particular cruise-ship company was going to go down dramatically, the U.S. government could place assets and surveillance on the ships etc. of that company to be on the lookout for terrorism, and hopefully stop the act before it was able to be executed. Also, by tracing back the questionable stock market trades, the government might be able to see who knew what at what time and perhaps track down the responsible terrorists in this fashion. Get the idea?
 
Project Prophecy Is Shelved
Jim Rickards and the team working on Project Prophecy were successful. They built a system that monitored hundreds of stocks and companies that they considered vulnerable to terrorist activity and financial gain. In fact, the system they built predicted the thwarted attack on an American airline company which was quashed by New Scotland Yard. The terrorist’s ostensible plan was to blow up a few international flights, the ones with the most Americans on board. While Project Prophecy was not a part of stopping the attack, the data and corresponding happenings did show that their thinking and programming was working. Unfortunately, as you might expect, the very government that envisioned, conceived, planned, paid for, and executed Project Prophecy, shelved project Prophecy. Not because it did not work, but perhaps because it worked too well.
 
Project Prophecy Breathes Again, But Under A Different Name
Project Prophecy was resurrected after a time. This time it was known as MARKINT. MARKINT was a derivation of project prophecy. However, rather than focus narrowly on terrorist activities, MARKINT used technology to track nearly any kind of trade that might be harmful or be seen as financial warfare in the markets. After all, the U.S. government realized that financial warfare, or currency warfare, was the new battlefield, and they needed intelligence. http://www.itmtrading.com/why-invest-in-gold-part-three/
 
The video itself has a screen showing symbols of 16 US government agencies with intelligence branches that Jim Rickard says are concerned about the impact on the USA if the dollar ceases to be the world’s reserve currency.  Another screen shows the statement, “THE FALL OF THE DOLLAR AS THE GLOBAL RESERVE CURRENCY.”
 
Jim Rickards states that one or more US government agencies are “lying to us” and that the economy is in much worse shape than government officials let on or that many politicians truly realize.  He explains why there could be a 25 year depression, based upon historical information and charts and current information and charts [Blog Editor: Here is a PDF document of some of those charts, etc.].  He claims that, “Debt is now destroying economic growth.”
 
Actually, it is worse than that.  Debt accumulation is setting the USA up for destruction according to biblical prophecy.
 
The Bible teaches the READ THE REST of post melding Rickards’ theories with CCOG Bible prophecies (‘Project Prophecy’ 25 Year Depression; By COGwriter; Church of God News; 10/15/14)
 
Well, that should set you up in a good position of better understanding of Tony Newbill’s first comment.

The Project Prophecy 2.0 WEALTH SYSTEM
 
By Jim Rickards
Financial Threat and Asymmetric Warfare Advisor CIA & The Director of National Intelligence
 
I’m Jim Rickards, and I want to thank you for viewing my video today.
 
There’s no doubt that America’s economy is teetering on disaster. We’re up against a systemic financial crisis that shows no signs of reversing.
 
People who’ve worked their adult lives could lose everything if they don’t take a few critical steps today.
 
That’s why I’m compelled to do something urgent to help…
 
And it’s why I’ve teamed up with Money Morning and its Chief Investment Strategist, Keith Fitz-Gerald.
 
 
Warren Buffett has been quietly building a $55.5 billion stockpile of Berkshire Hathaway capital…
 
In the months leading up to this bold move, Buffett had already allocated an additional $4.6 billion to investments in rail and utilities.
 
Now he’s targeted energy infrastructure, liquid natural gas production, and leaders in farm equipment manufacturing.
 
George Soros recently increased his short position on the S&P 500 from $299 million to $2.2 billion.
 
And he’s gone “all in” on agriculture and farmland… Argentinian shale oil… and natural gas from the Eastern U.S.
 
Altogether, Soros has added 182 new holdings to his portfolio. (Do you know which ones?)
 
As my predictions unfold, he could well become the wealthiest man on the planet – while others are losing their shirts.
 
 
Sincerely,
 
Jim Rickards
Financial Threat and Asymmetric Warfare Advisor

Here is what Environmentalist Marxists looks like and the Ideology behind wanting to end the Consumer Driven Market system which is Capitalism.

This guy says we are going to see this happen, because there are too many of us wanting and needing too much stuff.

 
 
The Earth is full
By Paul Gilding
April 8, 2012 Updated 9:39 AM ET
CNN
 
For 50 years the environmental movement has unsuccessfully argued that we should save the planet for moral reasons, that there were more important things than money. Ironically, it now seems it will be money — through the economic impact of climate change and resource constraint — that will motivate the sweeping changes necessary to avert catastrophe.
 
The reason is we have now reached a moment where four words — the earth is full — will define our times. This is not a philosophical statement; this is just science based in physics, chemistry and biology. There are many science-based analyses of this, but they all draw the same conclusion — that we’re living beyond our means.
 
The eminent scientists of the Global Footprint Network, for example, calculate that we need about 1.5 Earths to sustain this economy. In other words, to keep operating at our current level, we need 50% more Earth than we’ve got.

This is why most of Obama’s Czars and Obama himself are willing to attack the Capitalist system and want to have a Central Government controlling most of the rate of consumption to save earth’s resources and climate change from Overpopulation. The problem is coming out and making this kind of change to a world society’s economic system that’s always been for hope for the future both in quality of life and prosperity to a collective system that would start a worldwide civil war. So instead they are slow walking us into this by creating one free market crisis after another and making statements that suggest Capitalism is a failing system that never has worked and eventually we all will begin to think it is a failing system and be willing to convert to a Collective system under the UN Agenda 21 system.

Statement For The Senate Select Committee On Intelligence 5 February 1997

Statement For The Senate Armed Services Committee On Intelligence 6 February 1997

Lieutenant General Patrick M. Hughes, USA Director, Defense Intelligence Agency


Mr. Chairman, I am pleased to have the opportunity to provide a Defense Intelligence Agency perspective on the threats and challenges facing the United States and its interests, now and well into the next century. It is important to note at the outset that this testimony directly reflects the baseline threat assessment DIA [Defense Intelligence Agency:
Wikipedia
and AllGov] has provided to the Joint Staff and the Office of the Secretary of Defense in support of the ongoing Quadrennial Defense Review. This review of the global security environment assumes that the United States remains a global power politically, economically, and militarily, and that our country continues its active engagement in world affairs. If either of those assumptions are wrong, then the threat picture depicted here would change significantly. Finally, this analysis presents a global overview of the future in somewhat linear form — that is, we are providing our best estimate, from today’s perspective, under the working premise that current trends and conditions will continue to evolve along discernible lines. We recognize, however, that the future is non-linear, and that what we present here is likely to change. To address that concern, DIA analysts will continue to examine and study alternatives and excursions to each specific condition, event, and circumstance.


 
THE NEW ORDER…TRANSITION, TURMOIL, AND UNCERTAINTY

There is nothing more difficult to take in hand, more perilous to conduct or more uncertain in its success, than to take the lead in the introduction of a new order of things.” MACHIAVELLI

The world is in the midst of an extended post-Cold War transition that will last at least another decade. Many factors and forces are at work during this transition and some aspects of it have so far been very positive. The community of democratic states is expanding, the world economy has largely recovered from the decline of the late 80’s and early 90’s, and most experts expect steady, positive global economic growth — on the order of four percent per year — well beyond the next decade. From a national security standpoint, the threats facing the United States have diminished in order of magnitude, and we are unlikely to face a global military challenger on the scale of the former Soviet Union for at least the next two decades. The world is spending in real terms some 30-40 percent less on defense than it did during the height of the Cold War, the “rogue” states are relatively isolated, and at least one — North Korea — is probably terminal.

But despite these and other positive developments, this era of transition remains complex and dangerous. In much of the world, there still exists a potentially explosive mix of social, demographic, economic, and political conditions which run counter to the global trend toward democracy and economic reform. I will highlight the most significant of these.

Demographic Trends

Global population will increase some 20 percent between now and 2010, with 95 percent of that growth occurring in the developing areas that can least afford it. Many of these states will experience the “youth bulge phenomena” (a relatively high percentage of the population between 18 and 25 years of age) which, historically, has been a key factor in instability. At the same time, we are witnessing virtually unchecked urbanization in many developing regions as millions of the world’s poorest people move from rural to urban areas each year. These factors are straining the leadership, infrastructure, and resources of many developing states and regions. Some governments — mostly in the developing world — will be unable to cope with these challenges.

The sad reality about TED Talks is (one) it is elitist brainwashing of the masses and (two) for those able to afford a live Ted Talk conference one has to fork-out an elitist obscene amount of money. The obscene amount ensures that like-minded elitists conference together.

 
… Apparently TED has some ideas, and we should spread them. What ideas? Ideas that TED in its infinite wisdom …  If this doesn’t yet sound familiar, try replacing ‘TED’ with ‘GOD’.
 
 
… TED Talks are designed to make people feel good about themselves; to flatter them and make them feel clever and knowledgeable; to give them the impression that they’re part of an elite group making the world a better place. … (The trouble with TED talks; By MARTIN ROBBINS; New Statesman; 9/10/12) 
 
 
TED is a powerful and paradigm shattering initiative that brands itself with the slogan “Ideas worth spreading.” At this point, we have probably all heard of TED and the short talks given by inspiring people from all around the world to audiences at different conferences. These talks can range in subject and have included science, politics, entrepreneurship, consciousness, cosmology, inventions and more. As TED’s popularity grew, TEDx talks sprung up around the globe which gave a less moderated voice to inspiring people. As a result, TED has been involved in controversy as they chose to censor various talks they deemed worthy of their censorship. The issue is, these talks are of great importance and TED’s decision to censor them reveals their interest in preserving their own brand while not getting in trouble with the ‘big wigs.’ Here are the talks TED felt were Ideas not worth spreading.’ (READ ON to see TED banned videos – TED Talk Controversy: 3 Powerful Talks TED Tried to Censor; Posted by LDragonFire; ATS; 7/24/14 06:44 AM)
 
 
Are vaccines being used to depopulate the earth? (shocking video below) The answer may surprise you – especially considering what you’re about to hear.  If you doubt the (hidden) agenda of vaccine programs – this video shows Bill Gates talking about the need to lower human population to “save the earth” and the use of vaccines can help!
 
His presentation was given at a TED Talks conference and it’s about as evil a 3-minute presentation as you will ever hear. … (How vaccines are used to reduce human population; By Blanche Levine; Natural Health 365; 10/13/12)
 
“The world today has 6.9 billion people and that’s headed up to about 9 billion. If we do a really great job, we could lower that by perhaps 10 or 15 percent.” ~ Bill Gates (video here)
 
Bill Gates believes the density of the population in poor areas is too big, and with his depopulation plans he can ‘solve’ that problem. Consider his huge buyout of Monsanto stock – he owns millions of shares of Monsanto and Cargill stock, and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation keep scooping it up. He owns more than $23 million worth, or 500,000 Monsanto shares.
 
 
 
You can hear Melinda Gates talk about pushing birth control in a TED talk, even. She acts as if people should have choice about birth control but they have focused on poor areas in countries like Africa, where they also happen to push their genetically modified food agenda. Melinda Gates even says, “some people worry that the promotion of birth control is to control population.”
 
… says Mrs. Gates’ claims are “disingenuous” because the women she claims to be helping are not being informed about the dangers involved. [The Foundation pushes Depro Provero, made by Pfizer, and also the contraceptive called the most dangerous by the US FDA.]
 
“No African woman would agree to being injected if she had full knowledge of the contraceptives’ dangerous side effects,” Kwame Fosu told C-FAM, the Catholic Family & Human Rights Institute. “In fact,” claimed Fosu, “in countries where women are educated on the harmful complications, Depo Provera use is negligible.”
 
Why concentrate on birth control in developing nations? Because then you can control them through controlling their populations. Add this to rampant political maneuvering to try to get the remaining people hooked on GMOs, and you have a docile, sick, dependant country, living only on your pharmaceuticals and fake-food.
 
 
I think you get the point. No matter how wholesome feeling or makes you feel good, TED Talks are a nefarious instrument of the global elite to plant seeds of a NWO that is anti-Liberty, anti-Freedom and essentially top-down political and social Marxism.]
 
And along with the international concerns about Peak Earth Philosophies [See HERE and HERE] The Western Governments through their central banks’ monetary policies are making everyone dependent on a government handout to control the rate of consumption because they ALL believe this:
