Gaza has become a slaughter zone for the eradication of Palestinians with the
most advanced military technology that Israel posses. In comparison the blaming of Hamas for this latest barrage of rockets,
fails to recognize any proposition in the mutual savagery. Depending on one’s view just who is the unlawful belligerent,
sympathy and condemnation follows. This eternal struggle will never end peacefully. Debating international law, dissecting
historic claims, strategizing military options, analyzing diplomatic intentions, and especially honoring superior doctrine
among conflicting religious beliefs is a formula that offers no solutions. Yet, Israel is wedded to an expansionist political
objective. Extending settlements prevent any permanent settlement agreement.
For the last several years, the press on the disastrous North American Union has been off front-page news. Nonetheless, the plans to remove barriers and open up borders keeps chucking along. Those
who belief this course is desirable or those who conclude that it is unpreventable because the climate of globalization is
overpowering, are subversive collaborators of the NWO or gutless wimps that deserve to be run over by the hordes of barbarians
that flood our country.
Is it true that natural born citizens no longer cherish their personal freedom?
What about the hordes of immigrant refugees that flock across our borders, do they have a desire to embrace the goals set
down by the Founding Fathers or are these principles foreign to their mindset? Freedom is a concept that has many meaning
to different peoples. However, the essence of historic and traditional freedom is always consistent with the way the individual
is treated by the government that claims jurisdiction over their citizenship. Today, being a legal citizen matter little in
a society that refuses to defend its borders and opens the floodgates to aliens who have as much in common with descendants
of the original thirteen colonies as a transplant from a different galaxy.
July 4th has been the national birth date since the inception of the country. Americans want to celebrate past
glories because there are few reasons to believe that the current government or society is worthy of rejoicing. Deifying the
Founding Fathers and their wisdom usually is rooted upon the construction of a constitution based on separations of powers
and shared authorities with individual states. Lost in this commemoration is the concept of true and lasting independence.
establishment has an entrenched interest in convincing the public that their vote in elections actually decides who is selected
for public office. That same power elite runs and controls both Republican and Democratic political parties. Only a neophyte
or a delusional idealist believes that the voting cycle reflects the will of the people. When reform candidates engage in
the primary process, hoping to win the nomination from either of the two major parties, they face the stark reality that playing
ball with the money bundlers means obeying the directives of masters of the universe. These overlords own politicians, especially
those who continue in office by winning predetermined elections.
society that ignores or downplays Liberty is a culture that has lost its purpose. In such a regime,
the people are relegated to the whims of the State and every citizen is at risk of criminal prosecution.
Imagine the most evil attorney, like John Milton from The Devil’s Advocate movie, as a DA. The irony that the initials for a District Attorney are the same as the title of
the script should not be lost. Al Pacino’s Speech could be given in any courtroom by a zealot persecutor as a closing statement.
It may seem that an analysis
of the prepper cultural phenomena is a trite endeavor, but if you delve into the philosophical underpinnings of human instincts
for survival, a worthy lesson can be the result. Since life is a gift, the conditions upon which it ends or voluntarily forfeited,
are not necessarily dependent upon the will of the individual. A calculated act of placing your life at risk is not equivalent
with a deliberate suicide. The functions and purpose of the prepper community is in direct conflict with those individuals
that languish in hopeless despair and desperation. The response of the prepper to social turmoil is to prepare for contingencies.
Yet that defensive posture avoids the essential question, what is the point of surviving if the communal environment is a
The unprecedented removal from command, ending of military careers and forced
retirements is a sign that a new reign of terror wants to weaken the armed forces. The civilian Obama command, bosses generals
and admirals, as if they were lowly cooks or stewards. It is no wonder that resentment and disgust in the officer corps are
at an all time high. Before long, the commander of collectivists will be deploying taste testers before he takes his meals.
The practice of a pure free market is so rare that a plausible
argument can be made that a free market economy never existed. However, as the saying goes, Once Upon A Time, economic commerce
did reflect a voluntary basis for business transactions. The fortunes of trade rested upon the mutual benefit of all parties,
since repeated satisfaction built sustaining economies. Competition was the norm and the quality of goods and services developed
that propelled expanding growth and prosperity for the largest numbers of participating producers and consumers. In the corporatist
economic model, the goal is to create and protect monopolies, while stamping out any enterprises that challenge the Plutocrat
The belief that calling for and instituting sanctions against Russia is
a sound policy, illustrates the economic disconnect of the Obama administration. With the fervor for starting a new cold war,
the propaganda machine is working overtime to paint a picture that ignores real economic synergism. Note the conflicting reports
regarding the EU. Nine EU countries ready to block economic sanctions against Russia, quotes a diplomatic source to ITAR-TASS:
