“Mayday” fits Christ’s 7-Fold Warning for Huge Geopolitical Events in Mid-May

A CIA expert has damning evidence of impeachable crimes by Obama, Clinton and others that are expected to precipitate a man-made calamity and martial law to maintain control warning of impending loss if we aren’t ready for a crisis and chaos in America.  The CIA expert interview on TruNews.com is linked below.

Christ’s 7-fold warning of sudden events that come as a thief appear to fit what could be reality, reminding us also of “sudden destruction” coming as a thief in 1 Thessalonians 5:3. Christ even said He would come as a thief if we don’t watch. Rev 3:3.

This is an invisible coming in judgment as clued by His seven examples prior to His visible return in Matthew 25:31. The cost of being prepared is not large; failure on these points could mean huge loss.

  1. We could be hungry when the fig tree withers (Matthew 24:32), even as Christ was hungry when He looked for food, Matt 21:19. His warning included “when summer is nigh”–summer is nigh in May. The fig tree parable was about the Jewish nation then, but it applies to the “Christian” nation now that aborts its unborn, and approves perverted marriages “as in the days of Lot [Sodom],” Luke 17:28.
  2. We could lose family or friends in the sudden destruction (1Thess 5:1-6), even “as in the days of Noah….[when] the Flood came and took them all away,” Matthew 24:37. The ark was big enough for all who wanted to enter. After the animals came in pairs to enter, many may have wanted to go in, but fear of being laughed at or looking stupid stopped them. Crazy may be ok!
  3. We could lose our freedom when “one shall be taken [to a FEMA camp?], and the other left,” Matt 24:40. An “Emergency Police State” can come easily with a man-made disaster like the earthquakes that destroyed Fukushima and Haita. If you don’t understand how those were man-made, type “HAARP, Ventura” into YouTube.
  4. We could have our house broken by the thief’s coming, (Matt 24:43) because we don’t know when to “watch” (or what it means); similar reference by the apostle Paul in 1Thessalonians 5.
  5. We could lose our comfort as “the evil servant begins to smite his fellow servants.” Matt 24:48. Islam teaches eradication of infidels to be ready for the Madi. Revelation 9:7,8 describes “faces like men (beards) and hair like women (long hair). This may seem remote, but there are many areas in the U.S. where Sharia Law is making headway.
  6. We could lose our destiny as the foolish women who weren’t ready in Matt 25:6. Using the Rule of 1st Use [where a word or phrase is 1st found in the Bible, it often has a meaning or context to consider for end-times because Christ is he Word…”the First and the Last,” Rev 1:11 so the cry at midnight in Matt 25:6 is understood from the midnight cry in Egypt at Passover, Exod 12:29. If we doubt the history of the Exodus, we can type “chariot wheels, Red Sea” into YouTube.
  7. We could lose our money as the slothful servant who wasn’t prepared for his lord’s return in Matt 25:26. Many warn us of impending bank failures. There is low risk to taking our money out of the bank when we might lose it if something huge happens.

Each of the above examples fit with the execution of judgment on a deserving nation or persons, but we forget the biblical time to execute judgment was Passover, Exodus 12:12. Several of the clues point to 2nd Passover, a provision in the biblical law for Passover in May, Numbers 9:10,11.

Examples 6 and 7 above are punctuated by Christ’s saying again, “Watch…for the kingdom of heaven is like a man traveling to a far country.” Matt 25:14.  After winter, Israelites traveled in the spring, but if they couldn’t get back for Passover, the law [in effect till heaven and earth passes Matt 5:18] specified  Passover the 2nd spring month (May) as a time.

be awake smallPassover was a time when animal sacrifices were fulfilled by Christ, proclaimed as “the Lamb of God” by a Jewish prophet, John 1:29. But while Passover is no longer a time for animal sacrifices that prefigure judgment, it is still a time to “watch and pray” that God will pass over us in judgment.

Watch is translated from the Greek word, gregoreo, meaning to be awake. We can’t be awake every night, but Passover was the only time it was commanded of all, Exodus 12:10, Matt 26:38-41.

Wednesday evening, May 14/15 is the night that most churches have a prayer meeting. It would be wonderful if churches world-wide would understand the issues, to watch (be awake) and pray that God will pass over them as they seek biblical answers to what is impending.

I believe readers should hear the interview by TruNews’ Chuck Wiles of the CIA expert to understand that America as we’ve known it, is gone, and civil war may be impending.

Florida: Education the Defining Issue in the 2014 Governor Race?

On Tuesday, November 4th Floridians will go to the polls to select their governor. Currently there are thirty-two active candidates running. The gubernatorial race is the only statewide race in Florida. So what will make one of these candidates standout from the crowded field? If a recent election is any indicator, the defining issue will be – education – specifically Common Core State Standards (CCSS). People are rising up in Florida and across the country to stop Common Core. As George Will wrote, “Viewed from Washington, opposition to the Common Core State Standards Initiative still seems as small as the biblical cloud that ariseth out of the sea, no larger than a man’s hand. Soon, however, this education policy will fill a significant portion of the political sky.”

Chris Quackenbush in her column Common Core: The Chain of Betrayal notes, “Political battles are now being won and lost on the education issue as in the Florida Congressional District 19, where an ‘outsider’ Curt Clawson, beat sitting State Senate Majority Leader Lizbeth Benaquisto by 12 points largely because of her duplicity on Common Core.  Her conservative base was not fooled by her superficial conversion after sponsoring a bill in 2013 to implement Common Core as she is allied with Jeb Bush.  His tentacles reach far in Florida where he is a major donor and supporter of many State Legislators including Governor Scott.”

Quackenbush states, “Common Core is the final nail in the coffin of American Exceptionalism.” That’s how heated the debate has become in Florida.

Associated Press reporter Thomas Beaumont wrote, “Raising U.S. educational expectations through national goals was a priority for Republican President George W. Bush. But many of his would-be successors in the GOP are calling for just the opposite of government-set rules, and it’s splitting the party as the GOP class of 2016 presidential hopefuls takes shape.” Common Core is splitting the party between those who support Jeb Bush and those who support parents, teachers, administrators, academics and citizens who favor keeping local control of education.

While Florida Democrats want to focus on income equality, the minimum wage, legalizing marijuana and abortion rights, and the Republican Party of Florida focused on the economy, jobs and tax reform, the defining issue remains public education.

Will the Florida race for governor in 2014 be a harbinger for the 2016 race for president? Those interested in a winning formula will, by all indications, be keeping a close eye on Florida on November 4th.

Racist Offsets now accepted by NAACP

The LA chapter of the NAACP is refunding Donald Sterling’s contributions, for now at least. In a public statement Monday afternoon Chapter President Leon Jenkins said he was open to the idea of talking with Mr. Sterling, to negotiate a price for Racist Offsets no doubt.

“God teaches us to forgive, and the way I look at it, after a sustained period of proof to the African American community that those words don’t reflect his heart, I think there’s room for forgiveness. I wouldn’t be a Christian if I said there wasn’t.”

Most glorious compassion indeed. Mr. Jenkins continued…

“We are negotiating with him about giving more moneys to African American students at UCLA, and so we are in preliminary discussions.”

You read it right, comrades… “negotiations”. Mr. Sterling, with an undoubtedly generous “Racist Offsets” donation will be forgiven for his misdeeds. Let no racist rant go unfunded, comrades. 

“Mr. Sterling has given out a tremendous amount of scholarships, he has invited numerous African American kids to summer camps, and his donations are bigger than other sports franchises… “

As long as the Racist Offsets continue to roll in, Mr. Sterling’s rants will be forgiven by the NAACP. As they should be.

The 2014 state of wind energy: Desperately seeking subsidies by Marita Noon

With the growing story coming out of Ukraine, the ongoing search for the missing Malaysian jet, the intensifying Nevada cattle battle, and the new announcement about the additional Keystone pipeline delay, little attention is being paid to the Production Tax Credit (PTC) for wind energy—or any of the other 50 lapsed tax breaks the Senate Finance Committee approved earlier this month. But, despite the low news profile, the gears of government continue to grind up taxpayer dollars.

The Expiring Provisions Improvement Reform and Efficiency Act (EXPIRE) did not originally include the PT; however, prior to the committee markup hearing on April 3, Senators Charles Grassley (R-IA), Michael Bennet (D-CO), and Maria Cantwell (D-WA) pushed for an amendment to add a 2-year PTC extension. The tax extender package passed out of committee and has been sent to the Senate floor for debate. There, its future is uncertain.

“If the bill becomes law,” reports the Energy Collective, “it will allow wind energy developers to qualify for tax credits if they begin construction by the end of 2015.” The American Wind Energy Association’s (AWEA) website calls on Congress to: “act quickly to retroactively extend the PTC.”

The PTC is often the deciding factor in determining whether or not to build a wind farm. According to Bloomberg, wind power advocates fear: “Without the restoration of the subsidies, worth $23 per megawatt hour to turbine owners, the industry might not recover, and the U.S. may lose ground in its race to reduce dependence on fossil fuels driving global warming.” \

NRELThe National Renewable Energy Laboratory released a report earlier this month affirming the importance of the subsidies to the wind industry. It showed that the PTC has been critical to the development of the U.S. wind power industry. The report also found: PTC “extension options that would ramp down by the end of 2022 appear to be insufficient to support recent levels of deployment.… Extending the production tax credit at its historical level could provide the best opportunity to sustain strong U.S. wind energy installation and domestic manufacturing.”

The PTC was originally part of the Energy Policy Act of 1992. It has expired many times— most recently at the close of 2013. The last-minute 2012 extension, as a part of the American Tax Relief Act, included an eligibility criteria adjustment that allows projects that began construction in 2013, and maintain construction through as long as 2016, to qualify for the 10-year tax credit designed to establish a production incentive. Previously, projects would have had to be producing electricity at the time the PTC expired to qualify.

Thomas Pyle, president of the American Energy Alliance, which represents the interests of oil, coal, and natural gas companies, called the 2013 expiration of the wind PTC “a victory for taxpayers.” He explained: “The notion that the wind industry is an infant that needs the PTC to get on its feet is simply not true. The PTC has overstayed its welcome and any attempt to extend it would do a great disservice to the American people.”

As recently as 2006-2007, “the wind PTC had no natural enemies,” states a new report on the PTC’s future. “The Declining Appetite for the Wind PTC” report points to the assumption that “all extenders are extended eventually, and that enacting the extension is purely a matter of routine, in which gridlock on unrelated topics is the only source of uncertainty and delay.” The report then concludes: “That has been a correct view in past years.”

The report predicts that the PTC will follow “the same political trajectory as the ethanol mandate and the ethanol blenders’ tax credit before it.” The mandate remains—albeit in a slightly weakened state—and the tax credit is gone: “Ethanol no longer needed the blenders’ tax credit because it had the strong support of a mandate (an implicit subsidy) behind it.”

The PTC once enjoyed support from some in the utility industry that needed it to bolster wind power development to meet the mandates. Today, utilities have met their state mandates—or come close enough, the report points out: “their state utility commissioners will not allow them to build more.” It is important to realize that the commissioners are appointed or elected to protect the ratepayers and insure that the rates charged by the utilities are fair and as low as possible. Because of the increased cost of wind energy over conventional sources, commissioners won’t allow any more than is necessary to meet the mandates passed by the legislatures.

The abundance of natural gas and subsequent low price has also hurt wind energy’s predicted price parity. South Dakota Gov. Dennis Daugaard (R), in Bloombergsaid: “If gas prices weren’t so cheap, then wind might be able to compete on its own.” David Crane, chief executive officer of NRG Energy Inc.—which builds both gas and renewable power plants—agrees: “Cheap gas has definitely made it harder to compete.” With the subsidy, companies were able to propose wind projects “below the price of gas.” Without the PTC, Stephen Munro, an analyst at New Energy Finance, confirms: “we don’t expect wind to be at cost parity with gas.”

The changing conditions combined with “wide agreement that the majority of extenders are special interest handouts, the pet political projects of a few influential members of Congress,” mean that “the wind PTC is not a sure bet for extension.” Bloomberg declares: “Wind power in the U.S. is on a respirator.” Mike Krancer, who previously served as secretary of the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection, in an article in Roll Callstates: “Washington’s usual handout to keep the turbines spinning may be harder to win this time around.”

Despite the claim of “Loud support for the PTC” from North American Windpower (NAW), the report predicts “political resistance.” NAW points to letters from 144 members of Congress urging colleagues to “act quickly to revive the incentives.” Twenty-six Senate members signed the letter to Senate Finance Committee Chairman Ron Wyden (D-OR), and 118 House members signed a similar letter to Speaker John Boehner (R-OH). However, of the 118, only six were Republicans—which, even if the PTC extension makes it out of the Senate, points to the difficulty of getting it extended in the Republican-controlled House.

Bloomberg cites AWEA as saying: “the Republican-led House of Representatives may not support efforts to extend the tax credits before the November campelection.” This supports the view stated in the report. House Ways & Means Committee Chairman David Camp (R-MI) held his first hearing on tax extenders on April 8. He only wants two of the 55 tax breaks continued: small business depreciation and the R & D tax credit. The report states: “Camp says that he will probably hold hearings on which extenders should be permanent through the spring and into the summer. He hasn’t said when he would do an extenders proposal himself, but our guess is that he will wait until after the fall elections. …We think the PTC is most endangered if Republicans win a Senate majority in the fall.”

So, even if the PTC survives the current Senate’s floor debate (Senator Pat Toomey [R-PA] offered an amendment that would have entirely done away with the PTC), it is only the “first step in a long journey” and, according to David Burton, a partner at law firm Akin Gump Hauer and Feld, is “unlikely on its own to create enough confidence to spur investment in the development of new projects.” Plus, the House will likely hold up its resurrection.

Not to mention the growing opposition to wind energy due to the slaughter of birds and bats—including the protected bald and golden eagles. Or, growing fears about health impacts, maintenance costs, and abandoned turbines.

All of these factors have likely led Jeffrey Immelt, chief executive officer of General Electric Co.—the biggest U.S. turbine supplier—to recently state: “We’re planning for a world that’s unsubsidized. Renewables have to find a way to get to the grid unsubsidized.”

Perhaps this time, the PTC is really dead, leaving smaller manufacturers desperately seeking subsidies.

Secure property rights: Hold government to the law by Ron Arnold

Cliven Bundy marched into my life one Friday morning in January 1992 in a protest bound for a federal courthouse in Las Vegas. He held up one side of a street-width banner that asked, “Has the West been won or has the fight just begun?”

To my great relief, just as Bundy promised, nearly 200 ranchers from all over the state marched behind him, yelling “Property rights!” Nearly a mile later, the marchers fell silent and filed into the courtroom where Wayne Hage of Pine Creek Ranch faced arraignment for the felony of cleaning brush out of his ditches without a U.S. Forest Service permit.

The Forest Service had already confiscated Hage’s cattle and left him bankrupt, just as the Bureau of Land Management would try with Bundy 22 years later.

Hage had already filed a lawsuit against the Forest Service in the U.S. Court of Claims, just as Bundy now has cause to do against the BLM – last week, during their failed attempt to confiscate Bundy’s cattle, agents wantonly bulldozed his water supply into oblivion without court authority.

Wayne Hage did not stand in that courtroom alone because I was honor bound to prevent it – I had published his 1989 book, Storm Over Rangelands: Private Rights in Federal Lands, which unleashed the federal fury.

The message terrified abusive bureaucrats: There are private rights in federal lands – vested rights, not privileges.

His book, the product of three intensive, grueling years consulting with dozens of experts and sifting through many archives, found the dirty little secret that could destroy the abusive power of all federal Western land agencies – by making them obey their own laws.

It was so stunning that a sitting Supreme Court justice secretly sent Wayne a message marveling at his shining intellect – burnished with a masters degree in animal science and honed by academic colloquies as a trustee of the University of Nevada Foundation – and warning of the titanic battle to come.

How true: Hage was convicted of brush cutting but acquitted on appeal. His own lawsuit against the United States took almost 20 years, but proved there are private rights in federal land. He died of cancer in 2006 before he could see how great a victory he had won – and how the battle is still just beginning, as Bundy foresaw.

Wayne’s son, Wayne N. Hage, now manages Pine Creek, and his daughter Ramona Hage Morrison is his intellectual heir. She helped research his book, lived the courthouse agonies with her father and assisted with his seminars on protecting ranchers’ rights. Morrison said:

Private rights in federal lands were recognized in an 1866 water law. It says, Bundy cattle“… whenever, by priority of possession, rights to the use of water have vested and accrued, and the same are recognized and acknowledged by the local customs, laws, and the decisions of courts, the possessors and owners of such vested rights shall be maintained and protected in the same.”

That Act was passed a long time ago, but every federal land law since then contains a clause with language similar to, “Nothing in this Act shall be construed to impair any vested right in existence on the effective date of this Act.”

Most ranchers don’t know that and federal agencies exploit their ignorance with harassment that runs them off the land. Actually, understanding vested rights is not too hard – they’re absolute rights not subject to cancellation – but proving up those rights by assembling your chain of title and other technicalities and then making the government protect them is very hard.

The agencies know they don’t own the water rights, so their lawyers fight viciously with misdirection to save their empire from the owners. Ranchers lose in court because they don’t know how to prove up their vested rights and they don’t get lawyers who know the precision required to plead a vested rights case. Very few lawyers know.

Ranchers, get smart. Don’t assume anything. You probably believe a lot of things that aren’t true. Get busy and prove up your vested rights as we did. Get a court to adjudicate them as we did. Yes, your whole life will be one battle after another, like ours. Seek help to develop an army of supporters, as we did. You can shout freedom slogans all you want, but only the courts can destroy the root power of federal abuse.

The BLM has now withdrawn. Bundy has his moment of triumph. The cries of victory are thrilling.

But we know it’s not over yet. The BLM did not leave because angry citizens outnumbered their assault force by 100 to 1. Nothing has touched the BLM’s ability to return.

Get real: the BLM invaders left when it got ugly because it’s an election year and they’re all Democrats. They’ll be back.

Supreme Court 3Property rights defenders can stop them. We can go on the attack in the courts with organized funding to adjudicate protection for every last vested right in the American West. We have the laws to do it. We now need organization, money, brains, and the will to make it happen. Every vested right that we protect will destroy that much federal power to abuse.

Let no ranching family go unprotected.

That’s the hard way, but it’s the only way that works. Stay on target: the federal power to abuse must be destroyed.

BAD GUYS, GOVERNMENT LIES, MUSLIM SPIES: THE WIZARD OF “K” STREET EPISODE 1 – “The LOVE of Money is the Root of all EVIL”

In episode one we establish that the most powerful “un-elected” man in Washington LOVES money above all else. Grover Norquist eats, drinks, works, thinks, plans and sleeps – MONEY. Money is what defines Grover and directs Grover. The more money the better. Forget about Republican principles, forget about Ronald Reagan and his three legged stool, forget about friends and family. Remember, Grover = MONEY, the more the better.

FAQ’S

WHAT IS A MICRO-SERIES?

A micro-series is our new term for a compilation of very short, to the point videos which make a fundamental point and stand alone, but when woven together form a complete investigative expose’ documentary. We plan to release a new episode each week.

WHY DID YOU SELECT GROVER NORQUIST TO EXPOSE AS A BAD GUY?

That’s easy! If half of what has been written and discovered about Grover is true than this guy is clearly an ideological enemy of the state and NOT the Republican savior that many believe. Therefore, he must be de-legitimized before his various Boards and completely rejected by the dopey politicians who are beholden to him for their political careers.

IF NO ONE HAS BEEN ABLE TO DISLODGE GROVER’S DEEP ROOTS OF INFLUENCE IN THE REPUBLICAN PARTY WHAT MAKES YOU THINK YOU CAN?

The way we see it, if we are able to disrupt, disable or destroy Grover’s influence operation in America, the country is better off. But if we are not than we will have tons of material for our “edutainment” programs where we educate through entertainment. And what better subject for ridicule than a short-fat-bearded man who loves guns almost as much as he loves money, idolizes terrorists and is probably a “secret” Muslim, collects “Grover” dolls and has a black-board-screechy speaking voice that ought to be used at GITMO to torture terrorists!

Look, when your job is to fight, Bad Guys, Government Lies and Muslim Spies…you gotta have some fun!

France: The Front National’s dark underside

Nigel Farage, head of Britain’s UKIP, has flatly rejected an alliance with France’s Front National. While granting FN president Marine Le Pen’s courage and perspicacity on some crucial issues, Farage says she has failed to rid the party of its endemic anti-Semitism. Coupled with an earlier decision announced by Søren Espersen of the Danish People’s Party, this effectively dashes Marine Le Pen’s hopes of presiding over an influential 7-country Eurexit group at the EU Parliament.
A review of material readily available in French lends credibility to Farage’s evaluation.

Midway between the Municipal and the European elections, Front National VP Florian Philippot says the FN is France’s number one party and Marine Le Pen will be president in 2017. For all the ballyhoo over the FN’s inexorable ascension, the party won a small handful of municipalities, none of its bigwigs were elected (including Philippot who ran for mayor of Forbach), and the opposition UMP inflicted an unprecedented defeat on the Socialists without any FN alliances. Philippot, chairman of the European campaign, promises they’ll send 15 to 20 deputies to the EU Parliament where they’ll lead a strong Eurexit coalition and liberate France from the EU and the euro. While other parties will certainly indulge in opportunistic euroskepticism during the campaign, says Philippot, “We have ideas and convictions.”i Polls are showing a too close to call race for 1st and 2nd position, with the Socialists in third place.

Is the Front National a political party… or a posture? Founded in 1972, the FN was a fringe group with virtually no experience in government, indelibly colored by the foul mouth of its leader, Jean-Marie Le Pen. The election of heir apparent Marine Le Pen as president in January 2011 earned overnight legitimacy for the long decried Front National. The cordon sanitaire was spliced. No political broadcast is complete without an FN voice snidely dismissing the two major parliamentary parties—UMP and PS—as a Siamese twin UMPS that never keeps its promises. The FN is a double-edged sword. Issues like national identity, security, laïcité, or defense against Islamization are labeled “FN.” If the UMP tackles those issues, it is accused of “Lepenization” And the FN, claiming ownership of these issues, draws voters away from the UMP. This contributed largely to the defeat of Nicolas Sarkozy’s 2012 re-election bid.

While the notoriously provocative father has remained honorary president of the FN, the daughter claims to have banished unsavory ideas and elements that—unfairly–justified its “demonization.” Cleansed of anti-Semitism, negationism, racism and other reprehensible traits associated with the “Far Right Populist” strain of postwar European politics, the Front National poses as the only line of defense of the West against Islamization, EU tyranny, globalization, cheap Chinese merchandise, rampant capitalism, the banks, the international oligarchy that exploits the hardworking little man… and what other evils?

According to an investigation published in January 2014 by Frédéric Haziza, Vol au-dessus d’un nid de fachos [Flight over a nest of fascists]ii the Front National gravitates in a “Populist Far Right” constellation that includes the skinhead Serge Ayoub, the intellectual Alain Soral, the ex-comic Dieudonné, the PR wizard Frédéric Chatillon, and assorted like-minded personalities. Members and leaders of these groups fall in and out with each other, conveniently allowing them to disavow specific reprehensible acts or associations, but their core principles are largely compatible: Third Reich nostalgia, negationism, obsessive hatred of Jews/Zionists, rejection of capitalism and parliamentary democracy. Historically and currently, these groups maintain close financial and ideological ties with Arab-Muslim powers: Jean-Marie Le Pen was a friend and ally of Saddam Hussein, today’s National Socialists [a more accurate designation, in my opinion, than “populist Far Right”] are tied to the Iranian and Syrian regimes, Hezbullah, and their ilk… They speak out against immigration and Islamization, hang out with homegrown jihadis, and woo banlieue youth to their cause. The convergence of these ideas, emotions, and ambitions was manifest in the Day of Wrath on January 26th.iii And in the huge crowds that rush to attend Dieudonné’s “shows” (in fact Jew-hating rallies) plus the millions who click on his Youtubes.

Frédéric Chatillon (former president of GUD Groupe Union et défense)iv is a close advisor of Marine Le Pen. His PR firm, Riwal [http://www.riwal.fr/], handles communications, events, and other FN campaign operations. Through the Front’s micro-party “Jeanne,” Riwal makes interest-beating loans and sells (obligatory) campaign kits to FN candidates. Through another branch of Riwal [http://www.riwalsyria.fr/contact.htm ] Chatillon handles PR for the Syrian government, generating annual income of some €150,000. An additional Riwal site [INFOSyrie [http://www.infosyrie.fr/] counters disinformation about the Syrian regime.v Chatillon’s friendship with the Syrian General Mustapha Tlassvi and his son Manaf is common knowledge.vii When Manaf defected, Chatillon published a harsh note accusing him of betraying Bashar and the troops killed in combat.

Questioned about her association with Chatillon,viii Marine Le Pen snapped back, “Frédéric Haziza, is a monomaniac, he sees Nazis everywhere, there’s no Nazi problem, none!” She says Frédéric Chatillon is a friend and a very competent professional. She admits he was on the Far Right when he was in his 20s. Adding, “Who wasn’t? Or the Far Left?” What does she think of the Anelka affair? She thinks it’s number 1,013 on the list of priorities for French people. Florian Philippot says Manuel Valls (then Interior Minister) is obsessed with Dieudonné; the FN doesn’t defend Dieudonné, it defends freedom of speech and condemns the censorship of Dieudonné’s country-wide tour. Nicolas Anelka, fined by the FIFA and kicked off the Woolwich soccer team after celebrating a goal with a quenelle, says Valls is influenced by his wife [who is Jewish.]ix

Chatillon is quotedx as saying the quenelle is “… amusing, it means ‘up your ass,’ It’s the new anarchism.” On Soral, who walked out of the FN in 2011 because he wasn’t given the place he wanted on the electoral list: “When we talk about Jews he doesn’t say anything anti-Semitic, he’s like me, against the lobby and against Israel.” (Soral claims the Mohamed Merah affair is a Franco-Zionist plot to sully Islam; a sort of “cut-rate 9/11.”)

Youthful excess? Chatillon, says Haziza,xi hangs out in Iranian circles and is an agent for Hezbollah. He met personally with Sheikh Nasrallah. (This is confirmed by reliable sources). In 2006 Chatillon brought Dieudonné, Alain Soral, Thierry Meyssan, and Ahmed Moualek (president of “La Banlieue s’exprime”) to meet with his friends in Syria and Lebanon.xii The trip was in large part financed by the Tlass family. Subsequently Dieudonné made four trips to Iran, and also hooked up with Khadafi in Libya. Soral, Meyssan, Chatillon, and Jean-Marie Le Pen were photographed with Dieudonné after enjoying the show at his theater. Syrian funds financed the publication by Chatillon of revisionist texts subsequently translated into Arabic and distributed in the Middle East. In 2007, says Haziza, Chatillon and Alain Soral invested in “Local,” the bar/HQ of Serge Ayoub, chief of Jeunesses Nationalistes Révolutionnaires and Troisième Voie, dissolved by orders from the Interior Ministry after the killing of Clément Méric.xiii

Philippe Peninque, also former GUD, who handles finances for the Front National, co-founded “Egalité et Reconciliation” with Alain Soral in 2007. He is working on a strategy to attract banlieue youth to the FN for the 2017 presidential campaign. Axel Loustau, in charge of security for the FN, is also a former member of GUD.
Daniel Bensoussan-Bursztein, who has been researching and writing (Cahiers Bernard Lazare) on the Front National for years, traces (hypocritical) efforts by Marine Le Pen to attract Jewish support based on the notion of a common enemy—radical Islam. One episode concerns relations with the LDJ [Ligue de defense juive] After an FN delegation invited itself to a march in memory of Ilan Halimi,xiv an LDJ delegation appealed to Marine Le Pen, in vain, for an aggiornamento. On the contrary, she declared (in an interview with the European Jewish Press) that the victory of Hamas is not necessarily a bad thing, and Dieudonné is not a bad guy; she wanted to dialogue with him, not condemn him. Months later, some LDJ members checked out the FN’s Bleu Blanc Rouge Fête, only to see Dieudonné arrive as a VIP surrounded by supporters and FN bodyguards. A JDL fellow shouted at him: “anti-Semite.” One of the FN bodyguards retorted: “Go back to Israel.”

In January 2011, Louis Alliot (companion of Marine Le Pen and co- VP of the party) set up the Union des Français Juifs, directed by two contributors to the anti-Islamization site Riposte Laïque– Stéphane Shinazi, who helped organize Marine’s visit to the US, and Michael Ciardixv (who has since turned against the FN). Alliot made a visit to Israel, with special attention to residents of Judea-Samaria. At the same time, a notorious anti-Zionist, Edouard Ferraud, was serving as Marine’s international relations advisor. In the run-up to the 2012 presidential elections, Marine Le Pen made frequent statements in favor of Israel while heavily emphasizing the anti-Islamization arguments: Muslim street prayers, halal canteen meals, women in hijab, proliferation of mosque construction, insecurity… Bensoussan-Bursztein says Jews are making a big mistake if they think the FN is on their side. It is more acceptable today to profess anti-Islamization than to be openly anti-Semitic he says, but it’s window-dressing. Marie Le Pen’s de-demonization strategy is not a change of policy, values, or affinities; it is a change of image. Whatever small progress Marine Le Pen had made if, in fact, she truly intended to rid the party of its worst elements, is lost, says Bensoussan-Bursztein. Now she’s going in the other direction.

In any event, he says, the anti-Islamization discourse doesn’t prevent friendship with FN activists like the Islamist Nouari Khiari, who delighted in the 2002 defeat of Socialist Lionel Jospin, “friend of the Jews and Israel.” Farid Smahi, who slammed the door in 2011, accusing the FN of being “one of those nationalistic right-wing parties financed by Israel to practice anti-Islamism,” was recently convinced by Alliot and Jean-Marie Le Pen to reintegrate the party.xvi

(In another bizarre twist, Ludovine de la Rochère, current leader of the Manif’ pour Tous [mobilization against same sex marriage] was an honored guest at the Congress of the UOIF, France’s Muslim Brotherhood branch.)

Was the anti-Islamization discourse a club to beat Sarkozy’s UMP? Front National leaders clearly expressed their intention to destroy and replace the conservative opposition. Today, when François Hollande’s approval rating has sunk to 12%, the Front National is courting disgruntled Leftists, the unemployed, small businessmen, tradesmen, the little guys who think they’re getting a raw deal, impoverished pensioners, Eurexit nationalists… Without losing her grip on the anti-jihad vote, Marine Le Pen denies any hint of racism, xenophobia, Islamophobia behind the Front National’s “French-first” employment policy: “Naturalized immigrants are French, they will benefit just like any others.” Some will think she is skirting the issue. Others will remember the party’s strategy of wooing banlieue youth.
The interlocking affinities sketched out here can be verified from multiple sources. They suggest, at the very least, a confusion of values and interests in the heart of a party that claims to be the sole rampart against the destruction of French sovereignty and, by extension, the natural leader of the defense of Europe. Where is the bridge between these claims, brandished by dozens of unsavory fringe groups left in the wake of World War 2, and anti-jihad movements spawned in the ruins of the WTC?

Benghazi emails show White House effort to protect Obama

The most disturbing aspect of this whole episode, aside from the murders of Ambassador Stevens and the others, was the fact that the Obama White House decided to blame the Internet video for the attack, thus making an indirect assault on the freedom of speech and a sidelong endorsement of Sharia blasphemy restrictions.

“Benghazi Emails Show White House Effort to Protect Obama,” by Adam Kredo, Washington Free Beacon, April 29, 2014:

Previously unreleased internal Obama administration emails show that a coordinated effort was made in the days following the Benghazi terror attacks to portray the incident as “rooted in [an] Internet video, and not [in] a broader failure or policy.”

Emails sent by senior White House adviser Ben Rhodes to other top administration officials reveal an effort to insulate President Barack Obama from the attacks that killed four Americans.

Rhodes sent this email to top White House officials such as David Plouffe and Jay Carney just a day before National Security Adviser Susan Rice made her infamous Sunday news show appearances to discuss the attack.

The “goal,” according to these emails, was “to underscore that these protests are rooted in an Internet video, and not a broader failure or policy.”

Rice came under fierce criticism following her appearances on television after she adhered to these talking points and blamed the attack on a little-watched Internet video.

The newly released internal White House e-mails show that Rice’s orders came from top Obama administration communications officials.

“[W]e’ve made our views on this video crystal clear. The United States government had nothing to do with it,” Rhodes wrote in the email, which was released on Tuesday by the advocacy group Judicial Watch.

“We reject its message and its contents,” he wrote. “We find it disgusting and reprehensible. But there is absolutely no justification at all for responding to this movie with violence. And we are working to make sure that people around the globe hear that message.”

Rhodes also suggested that Rice tout Obama’s reputation as “steady and statesmanlike.”

“I think that people have come to trust that President Obama provides leadership that is steady and statesmanlike,” he wrote. “There are always going to be challenges that emerge around the world, and time and again, he has shown that we can meet them.”

Also contained in the 41 pages of documents obtained by Judicial Watch is a Sep. 12, 2012 email from Payton Knopf, the former deputy spokesman at the U.S. Mission to the United Nations.

In this communication, Knopf informs Rice that senior officials had already dubbed the Benghazi attack as “complex” and planned in advance. Despite this information, Rice still insisted that attacks were “spontaneous.”

The newly released cache of emails also appear to confirm that the CIA altered its original talking points on the attacks in the following days.

Then-CIA Deputy Director Mike Morell is identified as the person who heavily edited the critical fact sheet.

“The first draft apparently seemed unsuitable … because they seemed to encourage the reader to infer incorrectly that the CIA had warned about a specific attack on our embassy,” states one email. “Morell noted that these points were not good and he had taken a heavy hand to editing them. He noted that he would be happy to work with [then deputy chief of staff to Hillary Clinton] Jake Sullivan and Rhodes to develop appropriate talking points.”…

Florida: Public school 7th grade Civics worksheet portrays Republicans negatively, Democrats positively

Below is a worksheet from a 7th grade civics class currently being taught in Martin County Public Schools. It describes the Democratic and Republican parties to public school students. The handout appears, on the surface, to portray Democrats in a positive light and Republicans negatively. There are several factual errors and omissions in the worksheet, noted by a relative of the student. The highlighted text was done by the student’s relative.

The worksheet portrays the Democrat party supporting “the ideas of equal rights” when in fact the Republican party voted in higher numbers for the Civil Rights Act and is the party of Lincoln, who freed the slaves. It explains that “Many support Democrats legislation to protect gays and lesbians against discrimination.” It does not explain what the consequences are to traditional marriage, or a persons health (HIV/AIDS), well-being and the community.

The worksheet states “Democrats believe that the environment needs protecting… with the help of government laws that prevent pollution, even if it means penalizing businesses that cause pollution”. It does not mention that the Environmental Protection Agency was created under Republican President Richard M. Nixon based upon the findings of the Ash Council in April of 1970. It also states Democrats believe in “a strong military”. Currently, President Obama, a Democrat, has reduced the US military strength to pre-WW II levels. The military was reduced after WW II by President Harry Truman, and again after the end of the Cold War by President Bill Clinton, both Democrats.

Republicans are portrayed as supporting “the rights of business owners large and small”, “that the government should have a limited role in daily life”, “oppose the right to abortion”, “oppose same-sex marriage”, and in general “support gun ownership rights.” All are true but not for every Republican and conversely not for every Democrat. The handout states Republicans “favor a strong military”, “support school choice” “charter schools”. It states that Republicans “do not support a universal heath care system like those found in Europe and Canada.” No context is provided to explain how Europeans and Canadians fair under a universal health care system, nor does it explain the current issues with the Affordable Healthcare Act.

Black Media Need Ownership—And Control

With the continued consolidation going on within the media (radio, TV, newspapers), there is never-ending debate over the issue of ownership and diversity. But how do you define ownership? Is ownership the issue or editorial control or both?

As members of the National Newspaper Publishers Association (NNPA) like to remind me, Black media is by definition Black-owned and operated. The NNPA is composed of approximately 200 Black newspapers in the United States and the Virgin Islands. They have a combined readership of nearly 20 million and the organization also has a digital presence in BlackPressUSA.com, which enables newspapers to provide real time news and information to its national constituency.

There is no question that these newspapers are wholly owned and operated by Blacks, unlike media outlets such as The Grio, The Root, Essence magazine or Black Entertainment Television (BET). These outlets are merely White media masquerading as Black-owned media. The Grio is owned by NBC, The Root is owned by the Washington Post, Essence is owned by Time, Inc., and BET is owned by Viacom.

Each of these outlets is run by Black people who serve as the public face of their White-owned companies. Each of these outlet’s owners are all liberal and that seems to carry over into the work they produce.

So, with these corporate owners and their designated staffers from these Black outlets all being politically liberal, there seems to be no thought or interest in diversity of views. For the most part, Blacks crave to inclusion and then turn around and excluded those who do not agree with them politically.

The Black operators have effectively created a false narrative that they represent the views of the Black community. Nothing could be further from the truth. They represent the views of some of the Black community.

If you the Republican National Committee (RNC), it makes more sense to cultivate strong relationships and spend money with Black newspapers instead of those sickened by an identity crisis. The reason is quite simple.

Black newspapers are not beholden to white, corporate masters. Black newspaper owners are a better reflection of the true thinking within the Black community and their newspapers better reflect the full range of thinking within the Black community. Do you really think it is a coincidence that these Black outlets that are owned by white corporations are aggressively pushing a homosexual agenda or amnesty for illegals? This is in keeping with the agendas of these corporations.

You do not see these issues pushed within Black newspapers. Some individual owners may support these issues on a personal level, but it is rarely reflected in their newspapers. These corporations have invested in Black media outlets not to promote issues of relevance to the Black community, but to push an ideology and promote a cause, i.e., liberalism, homosexuality, amnesty.

Why is diversity of thoughts beneficial? Is diversity of ownership within media necessary?

What can we extrapolate from the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) report that stated, “As of 2011, whites owned 69.4% of the nation’s 1,348 television stations? That’s up from 63.4% in 2009, when there were 1,187 stations.” The report continued, “While white ownership increased, most minority ownership decreased. Blacks went from owning 1% of all commercial TV stations in 2009 to just 0.7% in 2011. Asian ownership slipped from 0.8% in 2009 to 0.5% last year. Latino ownership increased slightly from 2.5% to 2.9.” “Females owned 6.8% of all commercial TV stations in 2011, compared to 5.6% in 2009.

The same report indicated that Whites own almost 80 percent of all AM and FM radio stations, with more than 70 percent owned by men.

So, I think ownership and diversity are Siamese twins; you can’t separate one from the other. Only when Blacks own their own media outlets can they control the message that comes out of their outlets. When Whites are masquerading as Black media, their goal is to push an agenda; and in the vast majority of cases, it is antithetical to the thinking in the real Black community. Black newspapers provide a variety of issues within the Black community, liberal and conservative. The philosophical diversity of their ownership is more diverse with Black newspapers than in all the other media combined (radio, TV).

So, if the RNC is trying to establish a dialogue and a relationship with the Black community and they are trying to maximize the effort; there is no question that Black newspapers, including their websites, provide the most bang – and authenticity – for the buck.

Emerging Consensus that LBJ Killed JFK?

More than a thousand books have been written on the John F. Kennedy assassination, yet there remains much controversy as to what happened that day in Dallas. To the casual observer, the Warren Commission’s narrative of three shots in six seconds by a lone gunman may appear to be plausible. Search a bit below the surface, however, and you find many inconsistencies that call into question the entire story.

With the passage of time and the information explosion online and in books, the scope of the conspiracy and the cover-up in the JFK assassination comes more clearly into focus to anyone willing to wade through it, and look at it with fresh eyes.

Three books published in the time leading up to the 50th anniversary of the assassination present a common narrative that JFK was killed by a conspiracy led politically by Lyndon Johnson, and operationally by the CIA and J. Edger Hoover. In their books, The Man Who Killed Kennedy: The Case Against LBJ, by Roger Stone; LBJ: The Mastermind of the JFK Assassination, by Phillip F. Nelson; and Who Really Killed Kennedy?, by Jerome R. Corsi, the authors explain the psychology of LBJ, and how he conspired to bring together the details of the plot, and the cover-up that followed.

In them, we learn about a rush to advance the lone gunman narrative, about how evidence was mishandled and destroyed by the cleaning and refurbishment of the limousine, and how two mishandled autopsies on JFK’s body forever buried evidence that could explain much of what happened. We also learn how the plot was to unfold, how the CIA was to bring in the sharpshooters and provide the patsy to take the blame. We learn how the FBI, on authority by LBJ himself, would handle the cover-up, and how LBJ would then appoint a blue-ribbon commission who would confirm the cover-up of the prearranged narrative.

Lyndon Johnson was a psychopath willing to do anything to advance his rise to power. His rise was fueled by graft, corruption, and murder. Yes, murder. LBJ’s hitman, Malcolm Wallace, had killed seven other people in Johnson’s rise to power, including LBJ’s own sister, Josefa Johnson. LBJ’s high handed wheeling and dealing knew no bounds other than what he could keep from public exposure. Johnson was a ruthless politician who would go to any length to attain the presidency, including killing the president in order to assume his job. It is not much of a stretch to see a personality of his type behind the conspiracy.

The assassination of a president itself is shocking enough, but to think the succeeding president was behind the killing was beyond outrageous. It was unthinkable. Yet that is the truth we must face. Indeed, the public never seriously considered that possibility, and gave LBJ a benefit of the doubt he did not deserve.

That Day in Dealey Plaza

You do not have to be a forensic expert to know that more than one individual was involved in the assassination. A lone gunman would fire three shots in roughly equally spaced intervals. Witnesses on the plaza heard a shot, a pause, and then two more shots in rapid succession. This alone indicates more than one gunman was involved.

Yes, there were shots from the rear of the motorcade, but there were no eyewitnesses to Lee Harvey Oswald as the gunman. Oswald’s rifle had a misaligned scope and a malfunctioning magazine receiver. Oswald was a mediocre shot at best. To accurately shoot three shots in six seconds by an expert sharpshooter with a functioning sniper rifle would be almost impossible. For Oswald and his malfunctioning rifle, it surely was impossible.

Many believe the Zapruder film has been doctored and is not a reliable source of evidence. Yet in it, there is still sufficient reality to show what truly happened in those critical seconds. One sees the kill shot to JFK’s head with an exploding type of bullet. JFK’s head jerks left and rearward indicating he was struck from the right-front. Jacqueline Kennedy’s climbing onto the trunk of the car to recover a piece of skull fragment confirms the kinetic force of the bullet spraying bone and brain matter rearward. This shows that the shot was not possible from the School Book Depository to the rear. It had to come from the grassy knoll.

In the seconds after the shooting, dozens of witnesses rushed to the sound of the gunfire on the knoll to find the shooters. They could still smell the gunsmoke in the air. Once there, some found official looking men brandishing credentials claiming to be the Secret Service. These agents were impostors. The Secret Service later said that they did not have any agents in that area until at least an hour later.

Oswald was a CIA pawn, set up to be the fall guy. And in case you didn’t know, he personally knew Jack Ruby. There were no fingerprints linking him to the shooting. The paraffin test on his cheek came back negative, indicating Oswald had not fired a rifle that day. Modern voice technologies have also determined Oswald was speaking the truth about his innocence.

The Troubled Kennedy Presidency

JFK started his presidency by botching the Bay of Pigs invasion. The failure was squarely his. For those in the Pentagon and the CIA, his appearance was weak at a time when America needed to show strength and resolve in the face of the increasing Soviet threat. In the year to come, the Bay of Pigs fiasco would lead directly to the Berlin crisis, and then to the Cuban Missile Crisis. Perhaps the CIA is somewhat to blame as well, but no matter. JFK fired CIA Director Allen Dulles and other CIA leaders shortly afterwards personalizing the distrust between him and the agency.

In the summer of 1963, JFK had an epiphany of sorts, and sought a more peaceful dialogue with Castro and Khrushchev. Gone were his “go anywhere, pay any price” inaugural ideals. His June speech at American University gave voice to his new attitude.

At the same time, Vietnam was spiraling out of control. Hardliners wanted a strong response in Vietnam, and Kennedy was not to give it to them. That fall, JFK decided to pull troops out of Vietnam by 1965. With the hindsight of 50 years, this was the right decision, a true profile in courage. But with his failure at the Bay of Pigs, Kennedy had no credibility with military leaders, or with the CIA. To them, his decision to go soft on the Soviet Union, Cuba, and Vietnam amounted to treason, and it set events moving toward a fateful day in Dallas.

As the rift between Kennedy and hardliners widened, into the void stepped Lyndon Johnson. Never to let an opportunity go to waste, LBJ found the ultimate solution to his Bobby Baker scandal that was coming to a boil on Capitol Hill. LBJ’s days were numbered, and he was facing possible prison time. Kennedy was already showing signs that Johnson would be dumped from the 1964 ticket. With his ruthless drive for power, and RFK as the likely successor to the JFK legacy, LBJ would be out in the cold, except of course, if he could pull off the crime of the century, kill JFK, and garner public support in the process.

Johnson’s Involvement

Oliver Stone produced the movie, JFK, based on Jim Marrs’ 1989 masterwork, Crossfire: The Plot That Killed Kennedy. In the book and in the movie, you get a scattershot of diverse motives and factoids, but not the plausibility of it happening in concert. It was the CIA, the FBI, the mob, Texas oilmen, Dallas Police, the Secret Service, and so on. Too many people involved, too many loose ends, too many ways for the secrets to come out.

Missing in both accounts was a central figure in the assassination plot. If there was a conspiracy involving the mob, the FBI, the CIA, the oilmen in Texas, Lyndon Johnson would have had to be involved. Anybody he could not payoff, intimidate or bully into a corner, LBJ would just have them put away. This was as true for JFK as it was for anyone else.

Lyndon Johnson is the key to the Kennedy assassination. Johnson had the most to gain. He had the means and the motive to bury the facts. There was nobody with the leverage he had. He was the Vice President, and if he wanted to kill the president, he had the ability to do so by corrupting a wide array of people to do the deed and cover it up. LBJ was sufficiently ruthless to do whatever it took.

For many years, Johnson was a neighbor and a close confidante to J. Edger Hoover, Director of the FBI. Normally, people like him would be in jail, but in LBJ’s case, he held much sway with Hoover and the justice system. JFK, however, planned to force Hoover out in 1965 with the mandatory retirement at 70 for all federal employees.

With LBJ in the White House, the Bobby Baker Scandal investigation would be dropped. LBJ correctly calculated a grieving nation would rally behind him as JFK’s successor. Johnson would then have avoided political exile and incarceration, Hoover would get a lifetime tenure in the FBI, the CIA would have their war in Vietnam, big oil would have a politician office to legislate in their favor, and the mob would have someone to call off the dogs. It all hinged on the narrative of Kennedy being killed by a crazed lone gunman.

Johnson met the night before the assassination with the Suite 8F Group of co-conspirators at the Dallas home of Clint Murchison to finalize details of “The Big Event,” as it was called. Johnson’s mistress,Madeleine Brown, told investigators years later that Johnson told her that evening, “After tomorrow, those goddamn Kennedys will never embarrass me again. That is no threat. That is a promise.”

Not seen in the famous Ike Altgens photo was the 6’4” LBJ as he rode in the pale blue Lincoln, two cars back in the motorcade, a second or so after JFK had been shot in the throat. The much smaller Lady Bird can be clearly seen, however. LBJ was ducking low in his car as it approached Elm Street even before the shots were fired. He knew the shots were coming, and he was trying to take cover.

Moreover, Malcolm Wallace’s fingerprint was found on a box in the sniper’s nest of the School Book Depository. Within minutes of the shooting, a general description of the suspect fitting Oswald hit the newswires. So started the Oswald frame-up on the lone gunman narrative, and woe to anyone who might know too much and inadvertently tell the truth.

It is astonishing how many witnesses to the assassination met untimely and abnormal deaths. In his book, Hit List, Richard Belzer estimated that in the 14 years that followed, of the 1400 witnesses involved, 70 had died by homicide, suicide, or by some other unnatural way (an extremely improbable statistic). Most notable among them are William PitzerGuy BannisterDavid FerrieDorothy KilgallenLee BowersMary Pinochot MeyerSam GiancanaJohnny Roselli, and George de Mohrenshildt.

Allen Dulles, having been fired as Director of the CIA, loathed Kennedy. This attitude was found throughout the agency. It would not be difficult to find individuals to participate in the plot. Dulles, through his contacts may have provided many of the resources. After the assassination, LBJ named him to the Warren Commission, which would then overlook and cover-up much of the evidence.

Johnson and Hoover’s involvement of the assassination begs the question on whether they were also involved in the Robert Kennedy assassination. They knew that if RFK became president in 1968, their cover-up would likely be revealed. The JFK and RFK assassinations are likely linked according to Roger Stone.

What the Assassination Means Today

With the perspective of time, and dedicated research by countless individuals, we now know the central figure in the plot and the cover-up was Lyndon Johnson, and with him, the narrative comes more clearly into focus. However, the larger implications of our nation’s history, and what we think of ourselves, are more muddled than ever.

Phillip Nelson poses some basic questions. Who had the most to gain and the least to loose, who had the means to do it, and who had the apparatus in place to subsequently cover it up? Who had the kind of narcissistic sociopathic personality capable of rationalizing the action as a greater good together with the resolve to carry it though? Only one person had the wherewithal to do all this. Only LBJ was in a position to control the pre and post assassination conspiracy. The totality of the evidence points to him.

Johnson is revered by liberals for the legislation he rammed through Congress in the years after his taking office. To Johnson, the ends justify the means. But is this how Americans like to think of themselves? Roger Stone writes:

Lyndon Johnson, as a psychopathic serial murderer, is not a pleasant topic to think about for establishment liberals who like to think of him as a belated champion of civil rights, voting rights, and a slew of Great Society programs. In fact, acknowledging the JFK assassination for what it was— a coup d’état— is discrediting to the narrative of the United States as a beacon of democracy, freedom, and justice as well as a place that is morally superior to banana republics and third-world dictatorships. Establishment conservatives, just like the liberals, choke on that bone in unison.

The JFK Assassination is, by far, the biggest cover-up in American History, the consequences of which still reverberate loudly over the American political and social landscape. For the public, the shock of the assassination was terrible enough. But to even think that the Vice President was behind a coup d’état was just unbelievable. Johnson used this disbelief to his advantage, and covered up the truth until years after his death in 1973.

More than fifty years later, what does revelation of a coup d’état in the United States mean? That is a huge question. Who we are and who we wish to be as a nation was severely damaged that day. Because of the assassination, the trust in government by many citizens was lost, perhaps forever. America lost its innocence in this horrendous event, and the lessons learned have yet to be publicly discussed. With the passage of decades not knowing the truth, and a now a majority of Americans born after that fateful day, we stumble on as a lesser people. It is time to set the record straight.

The official Florida Senate vote history for SB 386 is posted here.  

This legislation, commonly known as “American Laws for American Courts”, would prohibit Florida courts from considering certain provisions of foreign laws, including Islamic Sharia law, if such provisions are inconsistent with the Florida and United States of America Constitutions.

If Florida courts accept provisions of Islamic Sharia law or other foreign laws or legal codes which are inconsistent with American laws it will undermine public policies enacted by our representative form of government and change our value system.

Application of Foreign Law in Certain Cases:

Defines “foreign law, legal code, or system”; specifies public policy on application of foreign law, legal code, or system in proceedings relating to dissolution of marriage, support, time-sharing, UCCJEA, & UIFSA; provides that certain decisions rendered under such laws, codes, or systems are void; provides that certain contracts & contract provisions are void; provides for construction of waiver by natural person of person’s fundamental liberties, rights, & privileges guaranteed by state or federal constitutions; provides that claims of forum non conveniens or related claims must be denied; provides that act doesn’t require or authorize court to adjudicate, or prohibit any religious organization from adjudicating, ecclesiastical matters in violation of specified constitutional provisions or to conflict with any federal treaty or other international agreement to which U.S. is party to specified extent.  Full text of SB 386.

A vote by the full Florida House of Representatives on HB 903 Application of Foreign Law in Certain Cases is pending.

Florida Senate Allows Law Licenses for Illegal Aliens

Floridians for Immigration Enforcement in an email states, “If College Tuition Subsidy for Illegal Aliens (SB 1400) were not bad enough, the Florida Senate in under 24 hours passed an amendment to allow law licenses for illegal aliens. The bill now goes to the House for a vote. The session ends Friday, May 2nd, 2014.”

On April 24th the Florida Senate took a bill that had nothing to do with state bar admission and amended it on the floor of the Senate to make illegal aliens eligible to practice law in Florida.

“Proponents of illegal aliens practicing law in Florida amended the bill, House Bill (“H.B.”) 755, on the Senate floor to avoid scrutiny or critiques of the legislation. The bill passed the Senate on Friday without any opportunity for public debate or participation. H.B. 755, which passed the House of Representatives March 23 by a vote of 117-0 as a family law bill, will now return to the House for consideration of the Senate amendment,” reports Dale L. Wilcox, State & Local Director for the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR).

Florida citizens did not have any opportunity to voice their concerns, call their representatives, or testify for or against the bill.

FAIR points out:

  • Illegal Aliens, by Definition, Do Not Uphold Our Laws. Admission to the Florida bar involves taking an oath to uphold the law and the Constitution-an oath that illegal aliens cannot, in good faith, take because they reside in the United States continuously in violation of federal law.
  • Illegal aliens do not only have past violations of the law to address on their bar applications, but current violations of the law as well. An illegal alien bar applicant is very different from an applicant who committed a prior bad act and subsequently rehabilitated or demonstrated law-abiding behavior after the misconduct.
  • H.B. 755 Conflicts with the Rationale Behind the Good Character Requirement for Bar Admission. Public interest requires that the public be secure in its expectation that those who are admitted to the bar are worthy of the trust and confidence clients must place in their lawyers. Bar admission and Florida’s ethical rules were adopted to protect the public and promote respect and confidence in the legal profession. However, no member of the public cannot reasonably expect his lawyer to obey the law if immigration laws are considered fair game for breaking.
  • The Indefinite Nature of An Illegal Alien’s Presence in the Country Fundamentally Impairs His Ability to Responsibility Represent Clients.Because illegal aliens have no legal right to remain in the United States, the representation of a client could be suddenly cut short by an order of removal. A lawyer who is removed from the country will not have enough time to act with reasonable diligence and promptness to resolve ongoing client matters and may not be able to give his clients adequate notice to terminate the representation.
  • Illegal Aliens Are Not “Otherwise Law-Abiding.” Even the average illegal alien, who some claim is “otherwise law-abiding” despite violating our duly established immigration law, violates numerous laws, including, but not limited to, laws prohibiting identity theft, forgery, and driving without a license or insurance, often creating real victims.

Wilcox notes, “Florida should demand that its lawyers be honest and law-abiding. Illegal aliens are neither.”

H.B. 755 was amended at the last minute to include the provision making illegal aliens eligible to practice law in Florida. As a result, the issue was never considered in any committee and never provided a public hearing.

Concerned citizens may call or email their Florida Representative and voice their opinion on H.B. 755.

Florida: Why In-state tuition for illegal aliens will pass in 2015

A week ago I reported that if Floridians wanted to head off in-state tuition we needed to get together a coalition, I said tea party groups, and meet with Governor Scott. The purpose of the meeting would be to demand a special session of the legislature to take up his broken promise of getting E-Verify passed or he would not get our vote in November. There was only one response and it was negative.

Take a careful look at Senate President elect Andy Gardiner’s biography, the man voted yes for SB 1400, and Speaker Elect Steve Crisafulli’s biography, the man who voted yes for HB 851. Both have awards from illegal alien employers of the state and Crisafulli is in agriculture.

Does anyone think if in-state tuition fails this year it will not pass next year with these two Republicans controlling the legislature and either Scott or Crist both support in-state tuition) in office?

That is exactly the reason I said now is the time to put pressure on Scott to alter course or watch the efforts to stop in-state tuition go to waste. Timing is everything.
