Those of us who have been in the liberty movement for longer than a few months remember clearly the outright fraud and criminal activity that occurred during the 2008 · Ron Paul campaign for President. There were countless examples of vote tampering and outright vote stealing four years ago. Of course we remember very well what happened in Nevada in 2008 and ultimately at the convention itself, when Ron Paul’s delegates were turned away from the convention altogether.
Having seen these criminal activities occur so blatantly four years ago, many of us were watching with eager anticipation to see whether or not the Ron Paul campaign in 2012 would act decisively when such activities occurred again. It all begin in Iowa 2012 , where we watched and waited with baited breath to see to what extent the Republican national committee would commit criminal actions, and to what extent the Ron Paul campaign would act to nip it in the bud.
Regretfully, beginning early on in Iowa, the Ron Paul campaign did virtually nothing to put the fear of prison into those who committed criminal acts of fraud. This was extremely disheartening. All of us who were part of the campaign of 2008 knew full well that if fraud wasn’t stopped in Iowa it would continue throughout the nation in state after state. After all, this is precisely what we saw happen four years ago.
Ultimately Rick Santorum’s people did a pretty good job of revealing the fraud that took place in Iowa. As a result of their diligent efforts it was proven that Romney’s forces had lied and cheated to make it appear that Romney won Iowa in the popular vote. As a result of Rick Santorum’s efforts, the popular election was finally given to Rick Santorum as it should have.
The question Ron Paul’s supporters have long been wondering is: ”Where was Ron Paul’s campaign team on this issue” given that Ron Paul’s campaign suffered more egregiously than Rick Santorum’s had? Especially since we knew in advance this would happen. It was just a rerun of 2008.
It is now a matter of public record that the level of criminal activity that has marred this entire campaign season has grown to such ridiculous levels that it can no longer be ignored by even the willfully ignorant. Yet despite the growing obviousness of this elephant in the room, we have yet to see any significant pro-active or reactive response from the Ron Paul campaign. Their de facto acquiescence to fraud and criminal behavior has been a source of confusion, consternation and bewilderment on the part of hundreds of thousands of supporters and delegates nationwide.
This culminated in a shocking about-face on the part of Ron Paul’s son Rand, just a few short days ago. With two months remaining until the convention, just as the mainstream media was finally being forced to report that Ron Paul was steamrolling through caucus after caucus, picking up delegates all over the country, Rand Paul sold out. He betrayed not only his father but more importantly he betrayed all of the revolution’s supporters across the nation.
We can only speculate as to what would cause such an egregious betrayal on Rand’s part. Some have speculated that a deal was made in which Rand will be offered a prominent position in a Romney presidency. Others have speculated that Rand made some other shadowy deal which will certainly come back to haunt him in the future.
As for me, my best guess is that the “Powers That Were ” made Ron and/or Rand a Corleone-style “Offer he could not refuse”. I can imagine that they sat Rand and/or his father down and showed him a slow motion video tape of John F. Kennedy’s head blowing up in Dallas, followed by slow motion footage of Robert Kennedy later being murdered in California. My guess is they said nothing while they showed the videos. At the end they simply said: “Any questions?” I will likely never know if my theory is correct or not. In the end it matters little why he would choose to essentially quit just at the moment his father’s lifelong victory was at hand. What matters is that he failed his test.
The very good news is that there are very talented and dedicated legal minds within the Revolution who are not so timid as Rand Paul, not so afraid, who are unwilling to allow either Ron Paul or his son to sabotage the huge investment of time, money, and resources that hundreds of thousands of volunteers have put into the Revolution over the last year.
There are lawyers around the nation who have gone public with their intention to (using their words) “Take over the Ron Paul campaign”, and begin the legal indictments to prosecute the many documented cases of criminal activity that have occurred around the country these last several months. From outright voter fraud to coercion, bribery and ballot-stuffing, there is an abundance of evidence which will certainly cause numerous members of the Republican national committee to lay awake at night. They should be contemplating whether they will be in orange jumpsuits by summer’s end.
Some of these lawyers are certified to argue all the way up to the Supreme Court of the United States, and have stated they will bring this all the way to that venue if they must. Their stated intention is to have this done before the convention in August.
Further, they have stated emphatically that there is ample precedent that all of the so-called bound delegates for Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum, and Newt Gingrich, are not in fact bound at all. Indeed, there seems to be ample precedent within the RNC’s own documentation that all of the delegates en route to the Republican national convention in Tampa are completely free to vote for whoever they want.
The success of these legal endeavors cannot be foretold at this time. Regardless, this declaration represents a huge victory for freedom, for justice, and for the future of these united States of America. We can only hope and pray that enough criminal activity will be prosecuted that the blatant criminal activity which has so marred this election season will cease immediately.
We should hope and pray that the federal judges who will hear these cases will have the decency, the honor and the self-respect to do the right thing when the time comes. There is little doubt there will be considerable pressure put upon them to be expedient and to allow well-connected criminals to remain free.
Finally we should all hope and pray that the hundreds of delegates going to Tampa Florida will vote as they see fit, for the candidate they desire to vote for, regardless of any pressure put on them to vote for someone they do not support. If this happens, we could end up seeing Mitt Romney receiving less than 50 votes on the first round.
This is all fabulous news for those who love truth, beauty and justice. Perhaps the most encouraging aspect of this startling new development is the fact that “Lawyers for Ron Paul” have taken this initiative without seeking either Ron Paul’s approval, nor really caring if he supports it at all.
You see, this campaign was never really about Ron Paul. It was about freedom, it was about liberty. Ron Paul was the standard-bearer and we’re all very proud to know him and to have worked with him. However it is not up to Ron Paul to decide whether or not freedom shall ring and rampant criminal activities go unpunished.
For whatever reason, Ron Paul has not had the stomach to engage in the hardball tactics that the Mitt Romney campaign has had no qualms engaging in. As a result of his unwillingness to confront criminal fraud, criminality has run rampant throughout the country all year and has seriously undermined the efforts of hundreds of thousands of honest, hard-working volunteers.
“Lawyers for Ron Paul”, if they are serious as to what they’ve said they are going to do in the next two months, will give America a second chance to get the 2012 Republican nomination done correctly. May God bless their efforts to put the guilty behind bars, and to create an environment where the will of the people can finally be expressed.
Can I get an amen from the crowd?
In response to my last post, “2012; The End of What, exactly?”, I was asked: “How can you hold any reasonable optimism that the future will be anything but an expression of the past? Even if Free Energy bring a cornucopia of possibilities and development beginning sometime around 2013, would not “human nature” guarantee that human exploitation would continue in more refined ways?” It is a fair question which I will address here…
Before I continue, I must reiterate that 2012 is looking to be a very challenging year. Consider the possibility of just a few events that seem increasingly likely:
- WW3 breaking out centered on the Persian Gulf,
- The almost certain collapse of the euro and the dollar,
- The fallout (pun intended) of the Fukushima disaster, in which a slow-motion “China Syndrome” is occurring even as these words are being typed. As we have never before seen an actual China Syndrome, we don’t yet know exactly how this will end. But we will likely see the end sometime in 2012. We will need to rename it: “The Japan Syndrome”.
Item #1 is not inevitable, but seems to be something that powerful men desperately want. Clearly, a World War will likely end as a nuclear war. That couldn’t end well. It could only end quite badly. Items 2 & 3 are pretty much unavoidable at this point. There are many other difficult situations developing, but this short list suffices to make the point. 2012 could indeed be “the end” of humanity, as we have known it.
However, I have argued that this is a time of great optimism – a time of awakening and rebirth. So, which is it? A time of hope or a time of fear?
We are witnessing transformations on a daily basis that give rise for great hope. All over the world people are awakening to the realization that their leaders have been lying to them. All over the world people are mobilizing to demand Truth and Freedom. Everywhere, people are beginning to recognize they have spent their lives ignorant and enslaved. Certainly this awakening, painful though it may be, is a necessary precursor to being able to adapt to a new paradigm.
In real terms, the numbers of the “awake” are small compared to the number of people who remain “comfortably numb”. In America the litmus test is probably best illustrated by 911 Truth. For a great many Americans there is a tremendous set of spiritual blinders, a cognitive dissonance that permeates the soul. It prevents them from questioning the official narrative of 9/11. To question the 9/11 narrative is to cast doubt on every myth we were taught from childhood. From the pledge of allegiance, Christopher Columbus, Armstrong’s walk on the moon, and pearl harbor, to the emancipation proclamation.
It is not surprising then, that very many cannot bring themselves to question the narrative. But there is a dramatic awakening happening just the same. Many people have awoken. There is a subtle but pervasive effect that a small group of people can (and do) have on the psyche of the greater masses. It is often called the 100th monkey syndrome. As the number of people who know and appreciate the nature of Truth and Beauty grows, an ever-growing pressure on the sleeping masses’ perceptions increases. And that subtle pressure is building with each passing day.
So things are spinning out of the control of those who would prefer that people remain comfortably numb. Everywhere they look, the illuminati see people are pulling back the curtain on the Wizard of Oz, and seeing a rather old man pulling levers. People are turning off the news channels that the illuminati bought and paid for decades ago. They are learning via the internet. 911 Truth is spreading. The phenomenon is occurring everywhere.
While the illuminati are desperate to destroy the central bank in Iran, and are willing to kill as many American soldiers and Iranian civilians as necessary to achieve that goal, they know they are running out of time. Their repeated attempts to prevent Americans from hearing the message of Freedom & Liberty from Dr Ron Paul is not working. People are hearing the message. Americans are actually becoming aware that the Federal Reserve is an evil institution that steals from them every day. I very much doubt that the illuminati anticipated this awakening. The Occupy Wall Street movement is a sign of the times.
International marriages are occurring on every continent. People in many countries are realizing that they have no true “enemies”, other than corporate fictions that have no soul. They cannot continue to see Iraqis, Afghanis, Americans or Iranians as subhuman. Soldiers are brainwashed in boot camp to see muslims as less than human, so that they can kill them without remorse. But the brainwashing is wearing off. The 1960s generation saw a popular movie entitled: “Suppose they gave a war and nobody came?”. That idea, ludicrous at one time, is no longer far-fetched. Witness this… Amazingly, it seems that we are now learning how to communicate with our own newborn babies, using a universal baby language…
The 1960s also featured a popular song that heralded the “dawning of the age of Aquarius”. Most did not know at that time what that meant, nor when it actually was to begin. Today we know that the astrological start date is in December of this year. As to what it means, that is still unclear. But clearly, we are at a unique moment in history – we will soon face a moment of Truth. One path will lead to a nuclear war and a level of destruction few can even imagine. The other leads to the building of a new society as the dollar and euro fail (replaced by something new), government institutions worldwide are uniformly seen as corrupt and unworkable (replaced by something new). Hundreds of suppressed technologies offering unlimited free energy, foodstuffs, cancer (and other diseases) cures, and many more exciting technologies will become commonly available, if we choose the better path.
Interestingly, it is not only humanity that seems to be on the verge of a great leap in our evolution. Even the animal kingdoms seem to be experiencing some kind of evolutionary change on a grand scale. We see that gorillas now can communicate with human beings. We see orangutans are now learning to swim and to use tools to catch fish. We see birds engaging in activity that can only be called “play”. We see common crows using tools in a complex manner to solve problems on a first try. This indicates they are now able to solve complex problems entirely within their cerebral cortex. And let’s not forget the recent discovery of a totally new “lost world” of species never seen before, under the Antarctic.
Such things as these were unheard of just 40 years ago. So the animal kingdom is undergoing a significant leap in its evolutionary path at this moment in time. That seems indisputable. We can easily appreciate the magnitude of such changes in the animal kingdom, because we are not caught up in the change. It is more difficult to appreciate that we are undergoing evolutionary change of similar magnitude, because we are so very close to it. It’s the age-old vexing problem of missing the forest because the trees are in the way.
The question that we must ask is: “Is it a coincidence that the animal kingdom is evolving at the same moment in time as we seem to be? Is the New Age which beckons to us to quickly evolve into a more enlightened age, simultaneously bringing the animal kingdom to a new level as well?” It is of course, hard to say with certainty, but it seems that we are in the midst of a planet-wide evolutionary moment. A time of “missing links”.
The ancients that spoke of 2012 as “the end of the great year” were clearly aware of something we are overlooking to this day. The question of how they knew, and what exactly might be driving this process, is an entirely different question. We’ll leave that discussion to a future time.
The 2012 election cycle is beginning. We see republicans announcing, amidst speculation of running mates. We hear talk of job creation, tax cuts, and other such time-honored campaign platforms. In addition we have speculation of birth certificates and rumors of illegitimate births. As the bible says, there is nothing new under the sun. It’s always more of the same.
But I find the need to step up and SHOUT AS LOUD AS I CAN to all my well-intentioned friends and acquaintances….
WAKE UP AND SMELL THE COFFEE.
Your votes do not matter because the powers-that-be (PTB) will only allow you to vote from amongst two candidates that they will pre-choose. Those two candidates will disagree on the margins, AND ONLY ABOUT THINGS THAT DON’T MATTER. In the end, you will be offered a choice between tweedle dee and tweedle dumb. They will both look good, sound good, and will accuse each other of spouting all manner of economic nonsense. They will both promise to get the economy going again; to put Americans back to work. They will both promise to end the wars as soon as we can do so in a ‘responsible manner’. They will each promise the moon and the stars.
But neither of the two candidates, if elected, will accomplish either goal. They will do just as gw and ob have done before them. gw’s campaign platform was such that he explicitly promised NOT to engage in nation-building. Within a month of taking office his cabinet was discussing how to start nation-building in Iraq and Afghanistan. ob’s campaign explicitly promised to end the endless wars. We could ‘take that to the bank’. Within a month of taking office he escalated the war on helpless Pakistanis. Then he escalated the war in Afghanistan. Then he invaded Libya. We still have a year to go. I wonder who he will invade next? Syria perhaps?
You are being lied to 24/7. Repeat that slogan three times a day, every day, until you get it.
We recently have had computer programmers testifying under oath that our computers that count our votes are fixed. You DO know that, don’t you? Your votes don’t matter. You will be offered 2 shiny candidates, who are each in some manner beholden to the PTB. Then, after a show campaign, the computers will pick the “winner”, regardless of your vote for tweedle dee or tweedle dumb. You will either get gw 3 or ob 2. It doesn’t matter which one of the candidates the computer picks. They will be the same underneath. The campaign is a charade. A monument to an earlier era.
Meanwhile, some of you hoped to minimize the ravages of hyper inflation by planting a backyard garden. But now, plutonium is falling into your garden with each rainfall. Your garden is being poisoned, slowly but inexorably, by one of the most deadly substances known to man. The devil himself could not come up with a more sinister poison. And you are now drinking it, eating it, and breathing it. And it’s just getting worse by the week… The PTB has responded by reporting that they have recently discovered that radiation is actually good for you… This is too brain-dead silly to even comment on, but there you have it. Educated men and women believe this stinking pile of dog crap. In the face of a litany of stupefying, civilization-ending, monstrous problems, the talking heads on the idiot box are discussing: which will best save America, a tweak in the marginal tax rate? Or laying off no-good selfish teachers and firefighters?
Meanwhile, the IMF recently estimated that the transfer of power from America to the next world power (China) will be complete sometime in the next prez’ term. The dollar is terminal – it’s dying. So what, you say? EVERYTHING YOU OWN IS DENOMINATED IN DOLLARS. YOU WORK 40-50 HOURS/WK FOR DOLLARS. And those dollars you work for, that you have saved in nest eggs and retirement accounts, your social security and your pensions, insurance policies and annuities, are soon to be virtually worthless. What should that tell Americans about their future? But pitifully few are preparing for the inevitable day that approaches. The rest debate throwing union workers out of work, in order to save the state a couple million dollars, but nod their heads in agreement when they hear we will spend billions blowing up Libyans, and sending billions of dollars worth of munitions to dictators in places like Bahrain, Saudi Arabia and Israel…
As you can see, I have just about lost all faith in America and in those who call it home. Barring a miracle, America is finished. She is dirt bag broke, too blind to see, and about to be terminally ill (literally). America is a failed experiment. It’s past time to learn to speak Chinese or Korean, because the writing is plainly on the wall.
The tragedy is that America’s economic problems could be solved overnight. All need be done is end the God-forsaken wars and fire the FEDERAL RESERVE. Our economic problems would be drastically reduced in a heartbeat. Of course, we would still be facing a world of hurt from breathing plutonium, but maybe there’s a miraculous technological solution waiting in the wings. (As I believe in a Divine Creator who knows how to solve the plutonium problem, I know there is hope.)
The only thing that might renew my faith in America’s future would be if a true outsider gets elected in 2012. Someone principled – not sold out to the PTB. Not blackmail-able and not easy to bribe. Ron Paul fits that description to a “T”, but in order for him to win, he would need to be polling in the 70-90% range prior to the election. That way fraudulent computer tallies could not give the election to a stooge, without an immediate backlash from the people. That’s certainly a LONG SHOT – but this is his third run, and Providence often secures miracles on a third try. So maybe I ought to retain some hope for America just a bit longer …
I mentioned to a friend recently that I ran for US Congress in the summer of 2001. Despite being a good friend, this person had not been aware of this. A cursory web search revealed that most references to my campaign have since been allowed to fall out of web cache. In the interest of leaving a record of a tumultuous time (which lifted many illusions from my eyes) I dedicate this post to that experience.
It was the summer of 2001. A long time US Congressman named Joe Moakley, who had represented the 9th district for some 27 years was dying. It seemed likely he would not live to see the next general election. This implied a strong possibility of a special election being held during the normal congressional term. There was speculation of who would run for the coveted office when he passed away. I happened to be living in the 9th district at the time. I read a news report that Max Kennedy, the son of the late Robert Kennedy, had just moved to the district. Upon reading this news, I realized that he moved there to run for Joe Moakley’s congressional seat.
Sure enough, Joe Moakley passed away and Max Kennedy announced his candidacy. No one else signaled an intention to run. I discovered that no democrat was willing to run against him for fear of incurring the wrath of Ted Kennedy – a lion of Massachusetts politics at the time. No republican was willing to run against him, as they all believed it was impossible to win against a Kennedy.
It struck me as deathly absurd that Max should be handed a seat in the US Congress without even token opposition. It just wasn’t right. I laid in bed one night wishing SOMEONE would run against him. I heard a small voice in my head asking me: “How about you?”
On it’s face, the idea was ridiculous, absurd, a clear waste of time and money. I had no support, little money, no name recognition – in short I had little hope of a win. As it was a special election, the time frame for the campaign was greatly shortened – only 40 days to gather the requisite 2,000 certified signatures to be on the ballot. For those who have never done it, 40 days is a very short time to gather so many signatures, if you have no base of support ready and eager to assist.
I recognized that my candidacy would be written off as inconsequential by most, as I had almost no chance of actually winning. But I had seen the impossible happen in the past. As a missionary during the late 70’s to the mid 80’s I had seen things that can only be described as miracles. Also, I ran for president of the San Jose State University student body. I also ran for President of the University of Southern California’s student body. I thought that maybe those campaigns were just training for this day. So I decided to take a leap. Maybe a miracle would happen.
The first thing I did was let friends and family know of my plans. Of course I needed their support first and foremost. To my disappointment only a few actually offered to actively support me. Perhaps they didn’t believe in miracles. In any case, some stood up when called and helped out. I remember them all clearly and am grateful to them to this day. A few days later I filed the papers to run for US Congress, 9th district of Massachusetts.
I ran as a Libertarian. This, in hindsight, was a mistake. Being a Libertarian is not a mistake, but I should have run as an independent. The burden in getting on the ballot would have been far lighter. I had anticipated a more aggressive amount of support from the Libertarian party than I actually received, unfortunately. As a result, running as a Libertarian was an albatross in more ways than one. Lesson learned….
Initially it was mostly just me working the parking lots and train stations gathering signatures. I put out my own press releases at night after gathering signatures. Of course this was all after finishing work at my day job. Those were long days.
Yet less than 2 weeks later, amazingly, people started to know who I was. People began stopping me on the street and asking if I was Jim Fredrickson. One afternoon I was gathering signatures when a rather tough-looking dude scowled at me: “Are you Fredrickson?” I thought he was going to hit me. I wanted to back up, but there were people watching and I couldn’t let them see a candidate for congress wimp out. So I answered as bravely as I could: “Yes, I’m him.” He then reached into his pocket, pulled out a check and gave me my first campaign contribution saying: “You are doing a brave thing. Good luck in your campaign.”
At this point I need to explain the significance of gathering signatures. They serve a valid purpose. By requiring a modest number of signatures the state avoids having 40-50 candidates for each office, most of whom who do no campaigning whatsoever. On the other hand, the state uses the signature requirement as a vehicle to keep people off the ballot if they “are not part of the team”. Take Max Kennedy for example. One call from his uncle Ted and no doubt he had the requisite 2,000 signatures in less than an hour. When he submitted the signatures the election board likely rubber stamped all his signatures without checking them.
Meanwhile it was made very clear to me that the election board would eliminate as many of my signatures as they could, to keep a libertarian off the ballot. For example, if the signatures I presented were not an exact match to the signatures on their voter registration card, they would be discarded. So, instead of needing 2,000 signatures I was advised to get at least 4,000.
My daily routine of hitting the parking lots every day after work continued on for about 3 weeks. By that time there were about 3 – 4 people working with me gathering signatures every day. Then after about 4 weeks the miracle I was hoping for actually occurred. On or about June 10, a cousin of Max Kennedy’s, a man by the name of Michael Skakel was charged with murder. I don’t know what, if anything at all, this had to do with Max, but the very next day Max dropped out of the race. He told the press that he wanted to spend more time with his family… At that point I was the only person in the race for the US Congressional seat, and there was only about 2-3 weeks left to get on the ballot.
Across the state you could hear the sound of jaws dropping. They were saying: “WHAT?? JIM FREDRICKSON COULD ACTUALLY WIN??” Overnight many state politicians entered the race. Most of them already had political bases of support and name recognition. My sole advantage was that I had been meeting people all over the district for weeks. Hundreds of people had seen me, met me, shaken my hand.
I was no longer running against a Kennedy. I was running against much smaller names, and I had a head start. But I still had to contend with the fact that the state’s political apparatus and the media did not know me. They certainly did not want an unknown Libertarian in the race.
With less than a week before the deadline to submit my signatures there were about 3 dozen people working the streets with me trying to gather signatures. I went into work one morning at Storagenetworks and was told I was being laid off. I don’t believe this was a political decision. The company was failing – 50% of the staff was let go that morning. However, it put me in a very uncomfortable position, as I suddenly needed to give some serious thought to my cash flow.
Finally, on the last day of the 40 day campaign I turned in 4,300 signatures to the election board. I was utterly exhausted. I was reasonably confident I had turned in more than enough signatures, and went home to rest and plan what to do next. By now there were about 5 other people in the race. They were all well-known in state politics and were undoubtedly more rested than I was!
A day or two later the election board told me they had disqualified 2700 of my 4300 signatures. That left me with 1600 signatures – 400 short of the 2000 I needed. My eldest son, Jonathan, was almost 11 at the time. Though young, he could see the writing on the wall. He said to me: “Dad, they are cheating you.” I knew that of course. A few days later the ACLU heard about the travesty and offered to sue on my behalf, as it was clear that a miscarriage of justice was taking place.
At that point though I looked at the situation. Though I was no longer competing against the son of Robert Kennedy, I was competing against half a dozen well-known politicians. I was out of a job and my campaign staff, though much bigger than it had been 40 days earlier, was not as organized as it could have been, had I successfully garnered more support from friends and family 40 days earlier.
When running against Max Kennedy, I could easily have gotten 30% of the vote – 30% would likely vote for “anybody but a Kennedy”. 30% could be counted as a win, in one sense. But now I was looking at a totally different race. I wasn’t likely to get even 10% of the vote against the current lineup, and the state of my campaign staff. So, I made a decision to decline the ACLU’s offer of help in suing the election board. Steven Lynch eventually won that congressional seat, and holds it to this day.
So my experience was a mixed bag. The miracle I was hoping for occurred on schedule. My inability to field a strong enough base of support early on, left me unable to fully capitalize on the miracle when it happened.
In retrospect I think I should have accepted the ACLU’s help and sued the election board. We will never know what other miracles might have occurred had I done so. Nevertheless it was a good experience that taught me many things about myself, friends and family, and mostly about the way politics works in Boston. Let me tell you – it ain’t pretty…
It should be noted in the very beginning of this article that this is ultimately sheer conjecture. I can not prove my implied conclusions. I simply note the obvious clues and allow the reader to draw their own conclusions. I will admit there are other spheres of influence that were likely involved, as well as those suggested herein.
“Deep Throat” told Woodward & Bernstein to “follow the money” to crack the Watergate scandal. Wise advice it was. To solve any mystery it is good to always first ask the question: “Qui Bono” or “Who benefited from the crime?”
Consider the murder of JFK. It is hard to determine exactly who was responsible since there were many parties that benefited from his death. Perhaps if Oswald could have been interrogated on the record we would know the answer, but as we know, Jack Rubenstein (aka Jack Ruby) executed him before he could give his testimony.
Some of the more likely candidates might include the powers behind the FED, as JFK had begun issuing US notes, backed by silver, to compete with Federal Reserve notes issued by the FED. Israel is also a suspect, as JFK was pushing to open up Dimona and Israel’s nuclear weapons to inspection. There are a few other notable candidates, but absent more information, it is hard to be certain.
Robert Kennedy’s murder is a little more revealing. He ran for President DETERMINED to avenge his brother’s murder. Given his proximity to the Oval office as Attorney General during his brothers administration, it is likely he had a very good idea of who murdered his brother. Robert Kennedy was on the path to winning the Presidential election when he was also murdered. It is not unreasonable to speculate that those who killed JFK also killed Robert Kennedy. JFK’s killers had a strong motivation to prevent Robert from being able to prosecute them, while Commander-in-Chief of the United States military.
So let’s take a cursory look at RFK’s murder. Who directly benefited is a bit unclear unfortunately. However, as discussed above the most obvious beneficiaries were those who killed his brother and wished to remain safe from retaliation. But we can learn something from the aftermath of Robert’s murder. Who was chosen as the patsy for Robert’s murder? A young man named Sirhan Sirhan, who was a Palestinian.
The choice of a Palestinian as patsy is quite interesting and revealing. It was 1968 when Robert’s murder occurred. Just a year before, in 1967, Israel had viciously attacked the American ship the USS Liberty in a failed attempt to sink her and leave no survivors. Their plan seems to have been to plant evidence implicating Egypt as the perpetrator, in order to get America to attack Egypt. This is called a “false flag” attack. This attack happened during the 6 day war in which Israel was fighting Egypt (and others).
So we can see that in the case of the USS Liberty, and other examples, Israel sees an advantage in committing criminal acts and then framing their perceived enemies for their crimes. So what can we conclude about the murder of Robert Kennedy just a year after the Liberty was attacked? Qui Bono? Who benefited from framing a Palestinian man for RFK’s murder? Israel has been at war with the Palestinians from 1948 to the present. They had a motivation to frame a Palestinian for Robert’s murder. It is hard, maybe impossible, to think of another state that had such a motivation.
It may be coincidence (though some would say there are no coincidences), but the name of the man who silenced Oswald before he could testify about John Kennedy’s murder was Jack Rubenstein (aka Jack Ruby). Given Rubenstein’s surname, might he perhaps have had an interest in protecting Israel from being exposed for murdering a US President? Is it a stretch that Israel would then murder Robert to prevent him from taking revenge on Israel as President in 1968? Or that they would then frame a Palestinian for Robert’s murder? The pieces fit together like a jigsaw puzzle.
Of course, this is all very circumstantial and would not be enough to convict in a court of law. Still, thinking men and women will surmise that there is likely fire behind all the smoke…
If you have not yet read Part 1, I encourage you to do so prior to reading this post. If you are unclear on how modern banking works, in particular how the FED works, I strongly urge you to read this post.
We ended part one with the newfound understanding that 1933 was a very bad year for Liberty. It was a disaster for the Republic. Next we will explore why 1933 was such a pivotal year. 1933 was the year that the Fed’s 20 year charter expired. This was the year they were to either be dissolved, or have their charter renewed.
We can presume that congressmen voting on renewal would first consider whether or not the Fed had done “a good job”. Their public mandate was to maintain the value of the dollar and to ensure that there were no economic fluctuations or panics. That was their entire public mission. Had they done well? No! 1933 was the 4th year of a calamity of the likes America had never known. The great depression was laying waste to the entire country. So, WHY WAS THE FED CHARTER RENEWED? The $64,000 question.
If you have read this post, then you understand that the FED is a private corporation. They pay the US Treasury to print money, paying for ink and paper costs. They pay the same for a $1 bill as they do for a $100 bill. Then they lend that money to the US government at interest. To say this is the holy grail of “money for nothing” is an understatement of vast proportions. It guarantees, without any doubt, that eventually the country will be bankrupt. But when will a country the size of America be bankrupt?? When it can no longer pay the interest on it’s debts. When might that be?
That day already occurred. It happened in 1933. After 20 years, from 1913 to 1933, having lent America the money to fight WW1 and then lending money with reckless abandon throughout the go-go years of the “Roaring 20’s” the Fed had brought the American government to it’s knees. Just as the deadline to renew it’s charter approached, it stopped lending money and started collecting on it’s huge notes to American government, industry and farmers. The government could not pay the interest on it’s debts. It was technically bankrupt.
The new President was informed of the situation shortly before taking office. FDR may have felt like he had a gun to his head. The Fed was arguably correct in saying “A deal is a deal. A debt is a debt. Pay up or accept that we will foreclose on everything the country has.” Others, this author included, would argue that they did not “lend” America anything, as they were just giving us printed paper that the Treasury had printed for them. In any case, after 4 years of the Great Depression there was no way he could pay the interest on the country’s debts. What was he to do? We can argue what he should have done (and we should in fact argue/discuss it). But after the arguing is over we must come to grips with what he in fact did.
He yielded to the Fed’s demands. Unable to pay them, he offered to steal the gold of the entire American Citizenry, and give it ALL to the Fed’s owners as partial payment of debts owed. The Faustian bargain of the de facto bankruptcy proceedings was that the Fed have it’s charter renewed, and would continue to make “money” available, but the “money” would no longer have any intrinsic value. Of course, most American people would not understand the depravity of the situation, so a façade of legitimate government vould continue.
BUT how would future debts to the Fed be paid, now that the American people had no REAL MONEY with which to pay?? The Fed, like world governments, want to be pain real money. Gold is how international banks and nations settle their debts to this day. WHAT DID FDR OFFER AS COLLATERAL FOR ALL THE DEBTS OF THE LAST 77 YEARS?
Collateral must be substantial. So FDR pledged the labor of the American people, in the form of income taxes. By 1973 the government was also pledging American lands to the Fed, which is why so very much of the country today is land which can not be developed by American Citizens. It is “protected” in the name of parks, wildlife, historical places, etc etc etc. The REAL reason is that it is being protected from being developed by anyone other than the ones to whom it has been pledged – the owners of the Fed.
The ongoing Chapter 11 bankruptcy of the American government has been a Ponzi scheme of a scale so tremendously huge it can scarcely be believed. But it is all true. However, like all Ponzi schemes it will fail when there are no longer enough new people coming to the party to support the payouts. The American Ponzi scheme was beyond huge. It was so huge that it took 75 more years, until 2008, for that balloon to pop.
The next charter renewal is scheduled for early in 2013. It is interesting timing, is it not?
The Obama administration referred Arizona’s immigration law to … who? You might guess it had been referred to the Supreme Court. But you would be wrong. It was referred to the United Nations for review.
As discussed in an earlier post, we recently saw a Corporation openly defy the EPA as it massively poisoned the Gulf of Mexico. Not only were no criminal charges filed, our federal and state governments allowed that corporation to dictate all facets of the disaster. They even seemed to take control of the Coast Guard, local and state police.
If these things don’t raise your eyebrows about the nature of our government, you aren’t paying attention, so please re-read the above.
I remember when Rick Stanley, Libertarian candidate for Colorado governor was on trial for openly carrying a handgun during a speech he gave in a Denver park. In court, he raised a constitutional, 2nd amendment defense. To my surprise, the judge said, in open court, “The constitution doesn’t apply here.” I wasn’t surprised by the fact, but shocked by the judge’s willingness to openly voice such a well-kept secret.
Before we proceed, take a look at the preamble of our Constitution. Get a copy online and read it. (Go ahead and do it now – I’ll wait.) It ends with “…do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”
Note that it refers to the Constitution for the United States. It does not say the Constitution of the United States. Words are very important, as are grammatical details such as punctuation and capitalization. While the difference between the words “for” and “of” seems to be an insignificant detail, it is not. These days, whenever people refer to the Constitution, they almost never use the proper name, which is “Constitution for the United States of America.” . They ALWAYS use a different name. They refer to the Constitution of the US, the US Constitution, etc.
Why don’t our governmental representatives refer to this very important historical document using it’s proper name? I would suggest that possibly it is because they are referring to a different document altogether. Perhaps a corporate charter in which a corporation named USA was incorporated. I can not prove this conclusively, but anecdotally there is a lot of evidence suggesting this may be so.
Regardless of whether or not a forgery of our Constitution with a very similar name exists, it is inescapably true that our Constitution is now moot and obsolete. George Bush the 2nd, while President, disdainfully called the Constitution “just a piece of paper”. When did this radical change regarding our Constitution and governance occur? In 1933.
In 1933 Roosevelt took office at the height of the great depression. The very first thing he did was close all the banks. He then stole everyone’s gold under threat of jail for non-compliance. To understand the significance of this action, bear in mind that gold was the only money at that time. People understood very clearly in 1933 what constituted their money, so being forced to hand over their gold was akin to modern Americans being forced to give all their cars, jewelry and real estate to the government under threat of jail. Overnight, in 1933, everyone was flat busted “broke”. They literally had no money at all. They were forced (with no avenue of appeal) to accept green pieces of paper as a substitute for their wealth.
The Trading with the Enemy Act of 1917 was then amended. This act had been written during WW1 (1917) to regulate commerce with such as the Germans at a time we were at war with Germany. American Citizens were specifically exempted from the act of 1917. The act was amended in 1933. The effect of that amendment was to remove American Citizen’s exemption from the act. American Citizens were now included under the statutory definition of the Enemy. Strange as that is to believe, it is true. Look it up. *
Now that American citizens were legally in the legal position of “the enemy”, with respect to their economic activities, FDR began the “New Deal” in which the principles of Free Enterprise that had been the backbone of the American experiment for 150 years were thrown out the window. Suddenly, people needed government’s permission, in the form of license, to conduct commerce. Regulations and governmental bureaucracy, practically non-existent previously, began to grow throughout the American landscape like a cancer.
The amended act gave the President, and the President alone, the authority to enact virtually any legislation he wished whenever the nation was deemed to be in a time of war or national emergency. The President is also the one who decides when the emergency has passed. (George Bush the 2nd called himself “the decider”.) Of course, FDR immediately declared a state of emergency as he began to systematically change the very fabric of what had been the American way of life.
From that time until the present, the country has constantly been under some form of declared “national emergency”. Also, we are now constantly fighting wars. We are fighting “real wars” in which innocent people bleed to death in the dirt, as well as imaginary “wars”, such as the war on drugs, the war on poverty, etc… These wars and emergencies are the basis on which the president can sign Executive Orders that become law of the land without congress voting on it, and without the Supreme Court ruling on the legality thereof. This answers many questions, does it not?
What was the congress thinking in 1933 when the Trading with the enemy act was amended? We can only speculate, but I doubt they were given the time to read the fine print. Had they actually read what they were signing, they would have realized that the president alone could decide when emergencies existed, and when they ended. The congressmen were likely given doomsday predictions about what would happen if they didn’t pass the bill with great haste. We saw a similar situation when congressmen passed the bankers bailout bills worth TRILLIONS of dollars (The “No Banker left behind” bill). The congressmen were told at that time that if they didn’t pass the bill THAT DAY there would be martial law by the end of the week. In any case, the 1933 congress passed the amendment, and we are stuck with the foolishness of their decision to this very day.
How about the Supreme Court? Where were they when all this was happening? The Supreme Court fought back. Recognizing that FDR was throwing the entirety of the separation of powers, the very heart of American Law, into the waste can, they quickly issued a number of important rulings overturning as unconstitutional most of the things FDR was trying to do. Good for them! How did FDR respond to their principled stand?
FDR formulated a plan to “pack the court”. He was having congress write an amendment that would allow FDR to name more than 9 Supreme Court justices! He planned to just keep adding court members until he had a majority willing to rubberstamp his policies. In the end, recognizing that congress was going along with the president in this nefarious plot, the court yielded. They suddenly found constitutional grounds for everything the president wanted. This despite their belief just weeks before that they were unconstitutional. The rest is history. The Constitution for the United States of America, which we have studied about in school, was rendered moot and obsolete when the Supreme Court was subjugated in 1933.
There is much more that needs to be discussed and understood. We need to recognize that the Constitution calls for all treaties to be “the law of the land”. Treaties are equal in law to anything found in the constitution. They are equal to anything that the congress passes. So, think about this! There are hundreds of treaties in force. If there is a little-known Treaty with say, Mexico, that allows Mexicans to travel freely in Arizona, then it is the Law of the Land! Does such a treaty exist? It would not surprise me. That would certainly explain much. Is there a treaty with the UN that gives the UN jurisdiction over the issue of Mexican immigrants in Arizona? It now seems there must be.
Perhaps the most important thing we must understand I haven’t even touched on. That is, why 1933? Why did all this happen in 1933? What was so special about that year?
The answer to that question is to be found in the Federal Reserve Act of 1913. The Federal Reserve act granted the Fed a 20 year charter, which was to end or be renewed in 1933. The Fed could have been, should have been, abolished in 1933, as it had proven itself a disaster, particularly during the years 1929-1933. But their charter was nevertheless inexplicably renewed. Soon I will post a discussion of why the Fed, which had created and overseen the misery of the great depression, was rewarded with a renewed charter.
Also, we must get a clear understanding of the answer to the very pertinent question: “What did FDR do with all the gold he stole from the American people in 1933?” Who was the beneficiary of the entire, complete, accumulated wealth of the United States of America?
