False East/West Paradigm And The End Of Freedom


This article was written by Brandon Smith and originally published at

People are desperate for leaders and heroes. This is an undeniable condition of human life and of human civilization. Some historians and social observers, however, seem to think it is enough to simply point out this condition and pretend as if they have made some grand declaration; as if they have come to the root of the problem of mankind. In their laziness, they have mistaken a symptom for the cause.

Why do people so often demand leaders and heroic figures? What drives the institutionalization of hierarchy, celebrity and geopolitical idolization? I believe this condition is caused by three factors – fear, ignorance, and apathy.

This is not to say that there are not people throughout history that are worth looking up to, or that looking up to a particular hero figure is wrong. Heroes and sometimes leaders can act as points of reference, helping us to aspire to greater personal accomplishment and extraordinary achievement. The problem is many historical figures labeled heroic are in fact monsters in masks paraded as saviors by history writers with agendas. Real heroes (in the past hundred years in particular) are most often unsung, and remain little known.

This is why the idolization of puppet leaders is so disturbing to those of us in the Liberty Movement. We witnessed the blind militancy of the so-called “right wing” in the support of George W. Bush after 9/11, only to be led into quagmire, economic despair, and a surveillance state based on numerous lies. We then had to witness the insane cult-like fervor of the so-called “left wing” as Barack Obama took office, only to continue and accelerate the same draconian policies of the Bush Administration while conjuring new methods for the division and destruction of American society and prosperity.

Yes, the Liberty Movement has examined every detail and is well versed in the horrors of the false Left/Right paradigm. Again, I’ll have to quote the ever useful elitist member of the Council on Foreign Relations and mentor to former president Bill Clinton, Carroll Quigley, on this particular issue, from his book ‘Tragedy And Hope’:

…The argument of two parties should represent opposed ideas and policies, one perhaps, of the Right and the other of the Left, is a foolish idea acceptable only to doctrinate and academic thinkers. Instead, the two parties should be almost identical, so that the American people can “throw the rascals out” at any election without leading to any profound or extensive shifts in policy. The policies that are vital and necessary for America are no longer subjects of significant disagreement, but are disputable only in details of procedure, priority, or method.”

What truly disturbs me is that our movement can be so awake and aware of the false left/right paradigm while remaining astonishingly naïve and short sighted when it comes to the false East/West paradigm. And once again, I have to attribute this naivety to a desperation for heroes caused by fear and apathy.

I have written on the reality that Eastern political interests are just as controlled by globalists as Western political interests for years. Readers can review the considerable amount of data and evidence I have collected on Russia and Vladimir Putin in particular and the ties between the East and international financiers and well known globalists in recent articles such as ‘Russia Is Dominated By Global Banks, Too‘, ‘False East/West Paradigm Hides The Rise Of Global Currency‘, and ‘The New World Order And The Rise Of The East‘.

In fact, I predicted almost every aspect of the current Syrian crisis based on the knowledge that the East versus West dynamic was purely an engineered conflict designed to diminish American power and economic influence through the use of planned chaos, and I did this years before events were ever triggered in the region.

I knew what was about to happen in Syria only because I understood one important fundamental – that there are no “sides” in any modern conflict, only proxies fighting on a global chessboard controlled by the same elitist interests. Syria represented a perfect catalyst for a planetary scale conflict triggered between East and West in way that could divert attention from internationalists. Modern war, whether through kinetics or economics, is almost always theater designed to distract and terrorize the masses, which are the true target of any conflagration.

We must set aside childish assumptions on war. Wars are not about resources. They are not about territory. They are not about the hegemony of any particular nation state. If you buy into such notions, you have been duped. No, war is about something much bigger. War first and foremost is a tool for the manipulation and molding of public psychology. As Edward Bernays, the father of modern propaganda said:

The great enemy of any attempt to change men’s habits is inertia. Civilization is limited by inertia.”

War is meant to forcefully change the “inertia” of civilization, and thus, forcefully change the direction of civilization in a manner that benefits the engineers of the conflict.

One great threat to the mechanism of globalism and the elites behind it is the liberty movement, which is slowly but steadily growing in popularity and influence as America edges ever closer to economic and sociopolitical oblivion. As the U.S. is homogenized, harmonized, and brought down to third world status for the benefit of a one-world system, resistance continues to grow.

You see, one negative side-effect of the rush towards centralization and a single global power (often referred to by the elites as the “New World Order”) is that the harder the globalists push society toward their Utopian ideal, the more individuals (not controlled governments or political puppets) wake up to the threat. Every action has an equal and opposite reaction. The Liberty Movement is the equalizing reaction to forced globalization.

In order for the elites to neutralize the threat we present, they must either destroy us or co-opt us. I believe the East/West paradigm is being used in part to attempt the co-option of liberty elements.

Despite the fact that many liberty analysts are beginning to understand the nature of the false East/West paradigm and the truth behind the rise of Russia, the predictable escalation in Syria is energizing a strange brand of Putin-worship once again. Liberty elements WANT to believe that Putin is somehow in opposition to globalization, that he is somehow morally superior to the Obama Administration, and that Russia is on the side of right in the fight against ISIS and the evil Western empire.

They want to believe this because they are afraid – they are afraid that they are alone in the fight against the NWO. They are afraid that they will have to commit to personal sacrifice and struggle against a vastly technologically superior opponent. They are afraid that they alone will have to take responsibility for America’s destiny and that no great leader on a white horse is coming to blaze the path ahead of them.

Because of this fear, they sometimes commit the crime of cognitive dissonance in order to protect their false belief in a heroic Putin. They will ignore the fact that Putin is a long time friend of Henry Kissinger, the most publicly vocal proponent of the “New World Order, and that Putin describes Kissinger as his “trusted foreign policy adviser”.

They will ignore the fact that Russia’s primary economic adviser is none other than the hitman of the international banking syndicate, Goldman Sachs, and that Goldman Sachs has been deeply involved in Russia’s economic affairs since at least 1992, just after the fall of the Soviet Union.

They will ignore the fact that Putin and Russia have allied closely with the IMF (an institution supposedly dominated by the U.S.). Putin and the IMF are so intertwined that it was Putin who demanded that the IMF take over the management of Ukraine’s finances after the regional crisis began, and, it was the IMF that blatantly supported Putin’s call for a change in Ukraine’s bond status from private to “official”. Russia also demanded that Ukraine’s debts be repaid in Special Drawing Rights, the global currency basket which the IMF plans to use to replace the U.S. dollar as the world reserve mechanism.

They will also surely ignore the fact that Putin and the Kremlin have on multiple occasion called for the IMF to take over global management of the worlds financial systems through the implementation of the SDR as the new world reserve currency.

And of course, the fact that Russia is a member of the Bank for International Settlements and the BIS is the policy dictator of ALL central banking (do I really need to quote Carroll Quigley on the BIS yet again?) does not bode well for the affiliations and intentions of Russia as a whole, yet we are still bombarded in the liberty movement with platitudes on how Putin is “sticking it to the bankers”. No, I’m afraid not. According to the evidence, Putin is just like Obama: Yet another whore for the internationalists. Post all the pictures you want of the guy holding an uzi or finishing a judo throw, but his public persona does not fit reality.

The mainstream media in the U.S. has for the most part run on the narrative that Putin is the next Stalin, and if you are going to perpetuate a false East/West paradigm this makes perfect sense. But there is also a separate narrative being presented to the liberty movement and the rest of the world.

The talking points coming out of outlets like RT (Russia Today), a media machine controlled by the Russian government, has for the past few years stolen brilliant observations by American liberty proponents and repackaged them as video fluff. Most of these observations are negative in their view of U.S. government policy as well as central banking dictatorship, and they are also entirely correct. The problem is, RT does not apply the same standards of journalistic skepticism to the Russian government or its ties to the central banking cabal.

Time Magazine publishes pro-Putin articles naming him “man of the year” in every other nation where they have distribution, but removes these stories and covers when publishing in America.

The general American public is being sold on the idea that Putin is a calculating danger to global stability and that Western governments must become more aggressive to counter the threat. The rest of the world and the liberty movement are being sold on the image of a benevolent Putin and a Russia standing firm against the corrupt war machine of the West, but this image simply is not real.

The danger for the liberty movement in the near future is considerable. Our blind support of the false East/West paradigm makes us vulnerable to easy co-option, for if we as a movement are tricked into closely affiliating with Russia then we lose our identity as a force for American independence and become nothing more than an “Eastern created” faux revolution. Think it can’t happen? Mainstream media outlets are ALREADY building the narrative. The Atlantic was the first, with an article directly connecting “right wing” movements and “conspiracy theorists” in the U.S. with Russian influence and propaganda.

As the false East/West confrontation grows, the real purpose of such a crisis will become apparent. ISIS agents conveniently shipped out of Syria among millions of “refugees” before Russian forces finally decided to strike will wreak havoc in Western nations. Economic chaos will become prevalent.  The U.S. will lose the dollar’s petro-status as the East subsumes Eurasia.  Fear of another world war will haunt public perception. The ever uneducated and terrified mass majority will become far less tolerant of intelligent dissent. And, the Fabian Socialists infesting global institutions will suggest a clever solution to the problem they created – the dissolution of all sovereign nations and the complete centralization of governance into the hands of a select few to save humanity from such destructive divisions.

If you understand that a primary goal of globalists is to fully remove constitutional protections in America and assert a totalitarian framework, then you have to admit that a conflict with Russia is an excellent opportunity for them.  War fever makes men delirious and malleable, and outside threats make internal despotism more tolerable.

In the meantime, if the liberty movement refuses to treat Russia with the same x-ray vision it has used against western governments (a Russia clearly working with international financiers and globalist institutions) then we make it far easier for the elitist propaganda machine to paint us as Eastern backed traitors rather than freedom fighters down the road, thus crushing our chances at garnering increased support from the public and awakening new voices.

Mark my words, in the end we will not only be forced to rebel against centralization under our own criminal government; we will also have to rebel against criminal puppet governments everywhere. I have no doubt that when we see the ranks of the globalist enemy, there will be Russian faces standing right alongside Western oligarchs. Maybe then people will finally admit that the East/West crisis was a carefully crafted hoax all along.


Brandon Smith


  1. Excellent article, Brandon!

    Basically all this is Treason on the part of those who serve within our military, government and support these actions in any way – actually or by doing nothing.

  2. Great article and you are so right. I still remember when Obama was caught off mike with Putin and he said “wait till after the election”. I have always felt that Obama and Putin were somehow in cahoots.

  3. Good article. If you are waiting for “Somebody” to do “Something” then you are the problem. Start with your street, see it stays ‘safe’. Get to know your neighbors and together you shall parse the best way forward. All the rest will fall into place. When complexity becomes an issue, re-read the original Constitution and proceed accordingly. There’s your Hero.

  4. Subjective interpretation abounds within an essay that covers a vast array of topics that would require multiple lengthy books to even begin to delve into. Unsure what message the author is attempting to convey.

    1. Perhaps you should read it again. The evidence presented is not subjective, it shows a clear relationship between Putin and international banking elites. You can question his motives, but you cannot deny the connection.

  5. Brandon is correct. He is not the only one observing and disseminating truth. Unfortunately, the truth has bearing on absolutely nothing. People do not want truth. Accepting truth means accepting responsibility. Americans gave up their responsibility (sovereignty) by requesting they be represented by others ( the criminal government). For example, by registering to vote, you are requesting participation in a criminal system of government. By placing your signature upon the government contract form ( voter registration) you are agreeing to be part of the body politic and be bound by the laws, codes and regulations that govern that body politic. You have essentially, by your own request and signature, removed yourself from the body sovereign and become responsible for the crimes the government commits against the people of this country and the world through participation. This is why Obama wants to make NOT VOTING a crime.
    Moreover, your vote does not count for anything more than a rubber stamp enabling the criminal government to do as it pleases. Look at what voting has gotten us so far…..(If voting actually changed anything it would be outlawed.)
    Americans have failed to “command” their public servants and hold them accountable. Now they run amok.
    This criminal governments hypocrisy knows no bounds. Take a look at the parade of criminals (candidates) running for President in the current election cycle (circus).
    Hillary Clinton is an accused criminal who is under investigation for committing acts of treason against the people of the United States. Not to mention the numerous scandals she has been involved with. Yet, she is allowed by the public (even loved and adored) to stand up and run on a platform that is totally unconstitutional (mandatory gun buy backs and usurp the second amendment) and the people want it.
    How can this woman take an oath of office to protect the constitution while running on a platform that seeks to destroy it?
    The rest of the circus performers run the gambit of being criminal casino mob bosses, socialist, banksters, etc. All of them are criminals participating in a criminal system of government.
    America is stupid, fat and lazy. Look to Mark Dice on youtube for examples of this. It is down right scary. This is why I think the Liberty movement will not succeed. Too many americants have, and will continue to deny truth, knowledge and wisdom. Nothing will happen until the sheeple no longer have the comfort of their homes, ice cream, beer, video games and television. By then of course it will be too late.
    The million dollar question is….what should we do about it? The answer was made clear in our Declaration of Independence. It is better to fight, kill and die than it is to be a slave. If you are not willing to protect your freedom with your life you deserve neither.

  6. F.E.A.R. = False Evidence Appearing Real; this is what most of the common people react on; it is a spontaneous reaction of the individual; like minded basic flock together; that forms a group ; which gets labeled most generally as radicals. due to the lack of in depth analysis; which causes them to act on the surface of the propaganda being fed to them.

    There are many extraordinaires that are still living; their days are slowly drawing to a close; which causes me to be sad; to be loosing the strength of their minds and back bones. At the
    time most went and did the job that needed to be don; not out of greed; but out of genuine necessity for the good of this NATION of Nations; Those were far different times; when our country was the LIGHT of the world for everything that was moral and good; so we were led to believe.

  7. This is no surprise to me ,we have a corrupt Government, an everyone of them need to be in prison on treson charges,I believe that the Bilderberg group has a lot or everything to do with this,

  8. There is so much here…..Brandon is incredibly perceptive and articulates in clear language. Beautiful. Deception is the mechanism for all manipulation – and deception is everywhere. G. Edward Griffin’s “The Future Calling” describes on a broader scale the mechanisms of the “nwo”. Brandon is pinning it down to current specific dynamics. All Americans should be all over this stuff – and yet it’s October, baseball season is climaxing and the NFL is in full swing…..and yawn we’re so tired from eating too much GMO foods….as for me the Lord is my Rock and my Salvation and my Deliverer! from Whom I get my strength. He predicted this “globalist” thing way way back when……and He WILL deal it a death blow… the fullness of time. ALL of this is the result of the fall. It’s all the result of SIN and our rebellion against our Creator. Imagine a world filled with LIBERTY without SIN! THAT is UTOPIA. 2 Cor 2:9-10: Eye has not seen nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man what God has prepared for those who love Him! But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searches all things, yea, the deep things of God.

    Great article Brandon! Thank you for your labor for LIBERTY!

  9. Brandon I believe that you have hit another home run with this article and I too see the danger of a co-opting of the Liberty Movement by the globalist social engineers. We now have to guard against this as well as all other attacks on our movement. Now we have to speak even more loudly to the choir about the tactics that are being used on us than ever before.

  10. Putin and Netanyahu are now allies.
    Israel and Russia agreed on Monday to coordinate military actions over Syria in order to avoid accidentally trading fire, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said during a visit to Moscow.

    Recent Russian reinforcements for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, which regional sources say include warplanes and anti-aircraft systems, worry Israel, whose jets have on occasion bombed the neighboring Arab country to foil suspected handovers of advanced arms to Assad’s Lebanese guerrilla ally Hezbollah.

    Briefing Israeli reporters after he met Russian President Vladimir Putin, Netanyahu said he had come with the goal of “prevent(ing) misunderstandings between IDF (Israel Defense Force) units and Russian forces” in Syria, where Assad is fighting Islamist-dominated insurgents in a civil war.

    Netanyahu added that he and Putin “agreed on a mechanism to prevent such misunderstandings”. He did not elaborate. There was no immediate comment from the Kremlin.

  11. The past handful of years in Germany and Russia they aired a series on TV with the buzz-phrase ‘Financial Tyranny’ about the gold that was returned to them by the Federal Reserve, it showed a guy with a gold bar using a band saw and claiming it was gold plated titanium and that they’d been ripped off. So – what sort of Austin Powers movie scene does that conjure – sneaking aboard a heavily armed ship en-route to Germany and replacing pallets of solid gold bouillon with the fakes or inside Fort Knox that We The People have been fraudulently prevented from checking on – but there it was on German TV and Russian TV showing gold plated titanium bars, rather than solid ones. Yes, 9 media 1 social 1 engineers have been very busy dehumanizing anyone and anything that upholds / values inalienable individual rights. This article nailed quite a bit right on the head.

  12. brilliant article! 😎

    yet another reason why it is imperative that the liberty movement rally together in unity to champion the principles of natural law and natural rights rooted in individualist philosophy, and continue to educate ourselves and those around us accordingly.

    through opening more eyes to the light of liberty, we can help make it easier for individuals to see past such collectivist deceptions as the “liberal/left VS conservative/right” and “East VS West”.

  13. Hi Brandon, would you please expound on your understanding of how the “The Constitution for the United States” or the “The Constitution of the United States” applies to men and women domiciled in one of the states of the perpetual union styled as “The United States of America” and not in a “Federal Area” or “State” as defined in 4 USC 110? As a attorney teaching classes on the Constitution and Bill of Rights, I would also like to better understand Stewart Rhodes answer to the same question, but could not find that topic addressed anywhere. Thank you

    1. The individual human person, the natural rights given to him by God and not by the state… worthy of emphasis whenever we are able to speak of it.
      When an ”official” says this is a state’s rights or this is state law, we who understand, need to clarify that it is the individual rights of the people within the boundaries of the state, that give purpose and power to that particular law.or that particular elected official. Too often the ”State” is spoken of as the overarching protectorate while in reality the power to change or to protect must come from the accountable, sovereign individuals.
      The State’s prime purpose. is to protect the sovereign rights of those individuals residing within its boundaries. A true civic leader activates that protection and power of change by educating the public in participatory government.
      Stay at home moms and dads who expect their elected officials to do all the heavy lifting of government soon loose their individuality and cede their sovereign rights to others. . In other words, when a person complains about their government, ask first what they are doing to change the problem within their own area, within their own individual behavior patterns…Follow your own money, so to speak.

      When individuals actually use participatory government , i.e. in , town hall debates, writing local petitions against over reach of power. or in the election of one of their own to a local office, ..then they ”see” and ”feel” their own power working as a cohesive unit.
      Keep up your teaching! Constitutional knowledge is a power to be shared if we are to keep it.

  14. Your best work Brandon!!! Kudos brother!! Here lies the jib of it all in one article superbly written. By the time the sheeple realize what hit them they will be fully caged and contained. Pockets of patriots will be easy to eliminate as they will take no prisoners and have already marked us as enemies to be sterilized. They know we will not fully rise against the machine until we are being physically shot at due to the inherent crafted designs of a civilized law abiding society. So hence, the media and soft manipulation at present to paint the constitutional patriots as crazies and terrorists. This will surely be the most difficult of times that patriots have ever been faced with thus far in US history on a monumental scale. Communications are key and prepping is tantamount. Freedom and liberty shall not perish from this earth. The tree of liberty must be fed from time to time with the blood of tyrants!

  15. We the People, have lost our individuality. We ask why doesn’t someone do something. Nevers occurs to us that the WE should be US, and we need to get with like minded people and be the ones who do something.

  16. Very excellent analysis and profound cautionary Brandon. For a bit of color commentary, we must also consider there to be a long standing, at least back to the overthrow of the czar, internal Russian resistance to western invasion, economic and otherwise. That has to influence Mr. Putin’s decisions, friend of traitor Kissenger or not.

    Goldman may be powerful in Russian money mongering, but the potential alliances with the BRICS and others in common bond to UN-PRINTED (read US dollar and bond debt) money exchange and their common needs for energy are very heady ingredients for resistance to the NWO hegemonic press.

    Of course, the NWO core manipulators have been behind the scenes, acquiring and hoarding power for easily 100 years in the BRICS countries, so that caveat must be factored in. None the less, an existential override resident in any native population is domination from outside by ‘the other’, which is probably the greatest hurdle the NWO has before it…I’m sure there are parallels in most of the industrialized countries to the Liberty Movement…and I say ‘ahmen!’

    1. In the beginning I always wondered who this Smith was carrying water for
      These days it is no doubt RKM (Rokthchild Khazarian Mifios)
      People are behind preisident Putin for one simple reason
      He is doing exactly what we would be doing if we but had the chance
      And as for the Trump mystery
      Mr Trump is saying exactly what the people are saying behind closed doors.
      Thank you Mr Putin
      Finally someone is doing OUR BIDDING without any expecting any rewards.

      1. Putin works directly with Goldman Sachs and is close friends with Henry Kissinger. He promotes the IMF agenda and his country’s central bank is tied to the BIS. How exactly is he sticking it to the international bankers?

        Also, you would think if I was doing the bidding of the Rothschilds I would have a lot more cash on hand…

      2. Brandon, Murf just proved your point concerning the need for a hero and the effectiveness of the one worlders’ paradigm.
        One of the problems for growth within the liberty movement is that so many don’t want to pay attention; explanations of what’s wrong and how to correct are too complex; accusing is easier than refuting. We may know too much and present too complicated explanations for new recruits as well as risk their total discouragement.
        From reading comments, it appears many who already believe themselves to be liberty minded, suffer from the same reluctance to get engaged with the complex issues.
        My questions to you are, “How do we approach the newbys and potential recruits with a simple message? Can you think of specific talking points that stand a greater chance of not turning off potential converts to the cause?”
        Thanks for any response.

    2. The BRICS bank works directly with the IMF, in fact, the BRICS bank could not function without them. There is no alternative banking system to the globalist banking system.

      Vladimir Putin Had this to say at a recent BRICS summit:

      “In the BRICS case we see a whole set of coinciding strategic interests. First of all, this is the common intention to reform the international monetary and financial system. In the present form it is unjust to the BRICS countries and to new economies in general. We should take a more active part in the IMF and the World Bank’s decision-making system. The international monetary system itself depends a lot on the US dollar, or, to be precise, on the monetary and financial policy of the US authorities. The BRICS countries want to change this.”

      The President of Brazil confirmed they wished to “democratize the IMF” and be given more inclusion, not break from the IMF:

  17. Excellent read Brandon. A very thorough analysis. I have been saying the same things in a slightly different way. The simple truth is that we all live under many illusions created for us by PRAVDA/MSM . As well Americans have become fat, dumb, lazy, spoiled and bit cowardly ! Now that is a more complete truth that most do not want to hear, but all of it is a fact here in USSA today ! This is why you see the apathy you describe. Your thesis is accurate but few are willing to admit the reasons or even identify the underlying reasons I point out, so of course nothing much can change without that personal honesty as the first step of understanding our current paradigm. Most folks are already so mind effed they are almost brain dead, sorry to say. Americans have NOT suffered enough to do anything about the tyrrany they are watching creep up on them. They are pacified with many trinkets, false security and various forms of materialism, which is their God !

    All my reasoning is at and

    my FB page

  18. We are going to have a rough road to hoe. I am not young, but am still willing to stand up to tyranny when the time is right. If you read your Bible, you will realize that we may very well be in the end times and close to Jesus’ return. I for one am ready for whatever comes down the pike. I pray that the rest of my compatriots are on the same page.

  19. Thinkers and Doers. Thank You for being both Brandon. No doubt about what you say. What you think about pushing the Bills sitting in Congress to “Get out of the UN, Stop Funding, Get them out of NYC.??

    1. Journe, the old saying to “keep your friends close and your enemies closer” may apply here. If we kick those bastiges out we may not know what they are up to.

  20. Excellent article Brandon….I read it a few times to digest the many issues and conclusions you delivered. I also liked the comments from Paulrevere01 and DowntoEarthThinking. I personally conclude that it will be impossible to avoid a major confrontation in the near future. Major issues like the TPP and the Iran Nuclear Deal are nightmares for us and if the TPP is ever totally signed off, it will be a sell out of our Sovereignty, just to name one problem with it. At the moment, this SCN major issue has already been implemented in 6 cities across our nation. Look up the SCN and you will be shocked. The American public knows nothing about this cancer that will eventually consume our freedoms. It is the SCN (Strong Cities network) that has been implemented by Obama (Executive Order) and placed in service by Attorney General Lynch. It is a United Nations One World Police Force program and is manned by UN compliant personnel. That tells me that there are UN boots on our soil which is a violation of our Sovereignty and perhaps our Constitution. UN programs over rides American law and the UN is Sharia compliant. A new “Czar” has been appointed to start monitoring Patriotic groups, Christian groups, Militia groups, Veterans (past & present), those that disagree with Obama and Obama’s policies. They are even monitoring bumper stickers that support organizations like the NRA and other liberty based organizations. All of “us” appear to be considered a threat to National Security and to be “domestic terrorists”. There are countless millions of “us’ and we best be prepared to defend this nation. We must not allow to let this adversary to take us down. I took an Oath when I entered the military in 1954 and it never expires. I will defend America to my last breath. God Bless America.

    1. “Major issues like the TPP and the Iran Nuclear Deal are nightmares for us and if the TPP is ever totally signed off, it will be a sell out of our Sovereignty,…”

      All Oathkeepers, answer me these things please.

      If the person who was put into office is doing things that our US Constitution forbids, or does NOT authorize; particularly when it is Treasonous in nature, how can that destroy our US Constitution and legitimate government?

      With no LAWFUL authorization it is just treason, quite possibly and probably backed by another invasion since there is already UN troops on US soil, and they have invaded us for the previous elections.

      This is only different in nature then if they came here with guns blazing attacking us on US soil because they are using the “backdoors and Trojan Horses because by instilling Traitors and Domestic Enemies to misinform, distort, lie, implement those who normally would be fighting against if they knew them for what they are , thus making the appropriate decision as to the action that must be taken confusing. It is never wrong to use our laws that are in Pursuance thereof the US Constitution, particularly the supreme LAW of our land itself to guide our actions.

      Alexander Hamilton: “Every act of a delegated authority, contrary to the tenor of the commission under which it is exercised, is void. No legislative act, therefore, contrary to the Constitution, can be valid. To deny this, would be to affirm, that the deputy is greater than his principal; that the servant is above his master; that the representatives of the people are superior to the people themselves; that men acting by virtue of powers, may do not only what their powers do not authorize, but what they forbid.”

      Think about this, if as James Madison, Federalist 57, wrote that Congress “can make no law which will not have its full operation on themselves and their friends, as well as on the great mass of the society.” How can those serving within our governments be doing exactly that which is forbidden?

      Thomas Jefferson: “The several States composing, the United States of America, are not united on the principle of unlimited submission to their general government; but that, by a compact under the style and title of a Constitution for the United States, and of amendments thereto, they constituted a general government for special purposes — delegated to that government certain definite powers, reserving, each State to itself, the residuary mass of right to their own self-government; and that whensoever the general government assumes undelegated powers, its acts are unauthoritative, void, and of no force: that to this compact each State acceded as a State, and is an integral part, its co-States forming, as to itself, the other party: that the government created by this compact was not made the exclusive or final judge of the extent of the powers delegated to itself; since that would have made its discretion, and not the Constitution, the measure of its powers; but that, as in all other cases of compact among powers having no common judge, each party (the people) has an equal right to judge for itself, as well of infractions as of the mode and measure of redress.”

      This is much messier, and harder to fight because those in the mass media have gone along with distracting, and confusing, and lying to the people in order to aid the destruction of America – but it STILL is Treason, and not lawful or binding on us.

      Take strength in the fact that the framers were intelligent enough to say that anything that was not in Pursuance thereof it is NOT lawful or binding on the American people. Why? Because THAT is how you tell who the Traitors and domestic Enemies of the USA are, by their actions and non- actions; by the “laws”/etc they pass and try to implement shows in bold lines exactly who the Traitors are. By the DELEGATED authorities they allow other branches to use when those serving within our governments do NOT have the authority to do so as that authority goes with the branch and/or specific position, NOT the person serving.

      Basically we can no longer just back away, we are at the cliffs edge.
      When they came for the peoples gold -we let them take it, and we knew it was theft. When they assassinated a President, hid the evidence and lied (actions to be much repeated afterwards in many different areas).
      When ships were bombed, American soldiers used as guinea pigs, and the American people the same.
      When they sold weapons to both sides and sent our military to fight just to make money for corporations and banking we let it go on.
      When buildings fall that should not have, murdering innocents, rescuers, etc. We let it slide again.
      They imprisoned those who told us of crimes committed by the top military brass, by those serving within our governments and we let it go by.
      Panetta, Dempsey admitted that their loyalties lie with the UN and NATO – Treason on the senate floor and NO ONE there who was required to had them arrested, meaning EVERYONE present at that time was complicit in their Treason. Again, we did nothing.

      I believe many times the doing nothing was because people did not want to believe, and how could they be sure, how could they charge them?

      We can be sure of one thing, the US Constitutions says exactly what those who serve may do, what is forbidden to them, and HOW certain actions may be taken in specific circumstances. Anything outside of that arena is not only suspect, but the actions committed the only problem is the decision if it is Treason or just a Domestic Enemy, or too dumbed down and being used. Those things can be discovered by a People’s Grand Jury Investigation, and appropriate charges brought.

      It is important to remember that as Abraham Lincoln said: “We, the people, are the rightful masters of both congress and the courts – NOT TO OVERTHROW THE CONSTITUTION, but to overthrow men who pervert the Constitution.”

      Thomas Jefferson, letter to William Johnson, “The Complete Jefferson”, p. 322: “On every question of construction (of the Constitution) let us carry ourselves back to the time when the Constitution was adopted, recollect the spirit manifested in the debates, and instead of trying what meaning may be squeezed out of the text, or invented against it, conform to the probable one in which it was passed.”

      Thomas Jefferson: “It would be a dangerous delusion were a confidence in the men of our choice to silence our fears for the safety of our rights; that confidence is everywhere the parent of despotism; free government is founded in jealousy, and not in confidence; it is jealousy, and not confidence, which prescribes limited constitutions to bind down those whom we are obliged to trust with power; that our Constitution has accordingly fixed the limits to which, and no farther, our confidence may go…. In questions of power, let no more be said of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution.”

      Thomas Jefferson: “Our peculiar security is in the possession of a written Constitution. …”

      And do not let anyone tell you that the meaning of the US Constitution is not clear, it is.

      Basically, as Thomas Jefferson put it: “The policy of the American government is to leave their citizens free, neither restraining nor aiding them in their pursuits.”

      This also applies to our supreme law.

      Thomas Jefferson: “Laws are made for men of ordinary understanding and should, therefore, be construed by the ordinary rules of common sense. Their meaning is not to be sought for in metaphysical subtleties which may make anything mean everything or nothing at pleasure.”

      James Madison: “Do not separate text from historical background. If you do, you will have perverted and subverted the Constitution, which can only end in a distorted, bastardized form of illegitimate government.”

      Thomas Jefferson: “[A] strict observance of the written law is doubtless one of the high duties of a good citizen, but it is not the highest. The laws of necessity, of self-preservation, of saving our country when in danger, are of higher obligation. To lose our country by a scrupulous adherence to the written law, would be to lose the law itself, with life, liberty, property and all those who are enjoying them with us; thus absurdly sacrificing the ends to the means.”

      Thomas Jefferson: “I consider the foundation of the Constitution as laid on this ground: That “all powers not delegated to the United States, by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States or to the people.”To take a single step beyond the boundaries thus specially drawn around the powers of Congress, is to take possession of a boundless field of power, no longer susceptible of any definition.”

      James Madison, Federalist 14: “In the first place, it is to be remembered, that the general government is not to be charged with the whole power of making and administering laws. Its jurisdiction is limited to certain enumerated objects, which concern all the members of the republic, but which are not to be attained by the separate provisions of any”.

      One might also consider these words by Lincoln.

      President Abraham Lincoln: “We may congratulate ourselves that this cruel war [civil war] is nearing its end. It has cost a vast amount of treasure and blood … It has indeed been a trying hour for the Republic; but I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country. As a result of war, corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until all wealth is aggregated in a few hands, and the Republic is destroyed. I feel at this moment more anxiety for the safety of my country than ever before, even in the midst of war. God grant that my suspicions may prove groundless.” (This passage appears in a letter from Lincoln to Col. William F. Elkins, Nov. 21, 1864, Hertz II, 954, in Archer H. Shaw, The Lincoln Encyclopedia (New York: Macmillan, 1950), p. 40)

      Thomas Paine summarizes it all well here: “’Tis the business of little minds to shrink; but he whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves his conduct, will pursue his principles unto death.

      My own line of reasoning is to myself as straight and clear as a ray of light. Not all the treasures of the world, so far as I believe, could have induced me to support an offensive war, for I think it murder; but if a thief breaks into my house, burns and destroys my property, and kills or threatens to kill me, or those that are in it, and to “bind me in all cases whatsoever” to his absolute will, am I to suffer it? What signifies it to me, whether he who does it is a king or a common man; my countryman or not my countryman; whether it be done by an individual villain, or an army of them?

      If we reason to the root of things we shall find no difference; neither can any just cause be assigned why we should punish in the one case and pardon in the other. Let them call me rebel and welcome, I feel no concern from it; but I should suffer the misery of devils, were I to make a whore of my soul by swearing allegiance to one whose character is that of a sottish, stupid, stubborn, worthless, brutish man. I conceive likewise a horrid idea in receiving mercy from a being, who at the last day shall be shrieking to the rocks and mountains to cover him, and fleeing with terror from the orphan, the widow, and the slain of America.

      There are cases which cannot be overdone by language, and this is one. There are persons, too, who see not the full extent of the evil which threatens them; they solace themselves with hopes that the enemy, if he succeed, will be merciful. It is the madness of folly, to expect mercy from those who have refused to do justice; and even mercy, where conquest is the object, is only a trick of war; the cunning of the fox is as murderous as the violence of the wolf, and we ought to guard equally against both.” …

      We dishonor ourselves by attacking such trifling characters while greater ones are suffered to escape; ’tis our duty to find them out, and their proper punishment would be to exile them from the continent for ever. The circle of them is not so great as some imagine; the influence of a few have tainted many who are not naturally corrupt. A continual circulation of lies among those who are not much in the way of hearing them contradicted, will in time pass for truth; and the crime lies not in the believer but the inventor…

      Some men have naturally a military turn, and can brave hardships and the risk of life with a cheerful face; others have not; no slavery appears to them so great as the fatigue of arms, and no terror so powerful as that of personal danger. What can we say? We cannot alter nature, neither ought we to punish the son because the father begot him in a cowardly mood. However, I believe most men have more courage than they know of, and that a little at first is enough to begin with. I knew the time when I thought that the whistling of a cannon ball would have frightened me almost to death; but I have since tried it, and find that I can stand it with as little discomposure, and, I believe, with a much easier conscience than your lordship…” (end quote)

      They cannot destroy our nation, our US Constitution, only “We the people of the United States can as it IS our document. They can make all the pretend “color of law” laws and Treasonous alliances they want, but again, it is only us who can destroy our nation. As it is only us, who can defend her. WE can destroy her by inaction, or at times by the wrong actions. But we can never destroy her by following the US Constitution and using OUR LAWS against them – and enforcing them by the US Militia.

      1. And everyone said “Amen”
        Its my observation that there are three types of people in this world.
        1. The “Mighty Trees” – those that know,” what they believe and why they believe it.”
        2. The “Grass of the field” – those blown around by public opinion, “that just want to be
        entertained, not educated.”
        3. The “Snakes in the Grass” those always looking for their next “victim.”

        Cal, you are a mighty Oak, thanks for spreading your Wisdom to this sapling!

      2. Thanks, but am not that is deserved.

        We all must learn what we can about our government as it really is, not as it is presented to us to meet the needs of those who wish to destroy us.

      3. Our country cannot even protect its borders. As you said, we have a prior secretary of defense openly committing treason before a Senate committee and no one speaks a word of charging him. Obama has committedcommitted treason several times over only to taunt Senate Republicans to charge him. Heaven forbid this country charged our first black (half black) president. So what are we to do? March on the White House? That won’t happen. White, Christian, veterans are the biggest threat to this country. Didn’t you know? Support Russia or don’t support Russia. It doesn’t matter either way. Nothing we do will change anything andand everything supposedly just smoke and mirrors anyway. What’s the point anymore?

      4. It is the constitutionally assigned duty to the Militias of the several states to defend our borders from being invaded, even when basically invited in by Traitors serving within our governments.

        US Constitution, Article 1, Section 8, Clause 15: “To provide for calling forth the Militia to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections and repel invasions.”

        That is why our borders are open, not because of the not constitutionally recognized and forbidden border patrols, or any other law enforcement agency – state or general (federal).

        The Military only steps in IF and WHEN we are in a congressionally declared War.

        But remember, the constitutionally “organized” (trained) Militia – LAWFUL – are the Vets and ex LE’s (if they bother to train as the military is required) to, as the Militias of the several states,

        — Enforce the US Constitution and each state’s Constitution,
        — Enforce and keep the “Laws of the Union” (which are constitutional laws ONLY),
        — Protect the country against all enemies both domestic and foreign, and
        — “to suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions”.

        Which is why those who serve within our governments have been going after them; trying to disarm them, etc. They, as long as they follow the US Constitution and the state Constitution, are the LAWFUL constitutionally REQUIRED defenders (and trainers since. those who serve within our governments have NOT done their assigned duties to the Militias, instead trying to TREASONOUSLY permanently end them) of the rest of the nation.

        They (vets, etc) must always beware of what is going on around them because they are the ONLY lawful constitutional body within our nation, and they are the ones those who serve within our governments are REQUIRED to use.

        Many say that there is no Militia to use and they are wrong. the Militia is there and trained, but know not what they are and what their duties are to this nation and the American people. They are, in some aspects, like a lot of the masses, sheep. Well, wolfs in sheeps skins not realizing that THEY are constitutionally REQUIRED and LAWFUL defenders of our nation – yet. That makes them almost the ONLY constitutional body of our government (the peoples part, not the general or states) left in this nation.

        Read the US Constitution.

        John Adams, A Defense of the Constitutions of the United States 475: “To suppose arms in the hands of citizens, to be used at individual discretion, except in private self-defense, or by partial orders of towns, countries or districts of a state, is to demolish every constitution, and lay the laws prostrate, so that liberty can be enjoyed by no man; it is a dissolution of the government. The fundamental law of the militia is, that it be created, directed and commanded by the laws, and ever for the support of the laws.”

        Alexander Hamilton, Federalist Papers 28: “The militia is a voluntary force not associated or under the control of the States except when called out; [when called into actual service] a permanent or long standing force would be entirely different in make-up and call.”

        This ex General and ex US President would know of which he speaks.

        George Washington: “A free people ought not only to be armed, but disciplined; to which end a uniform and well-digested plan is requisite; and their safety and interest require that they should promote such manufactories as tend to render them independent of others for essential, particularly military, supplies.”

        Richard Henry Lee, First Senate: “To preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them.”

        Rep. Elbridge Gerry of Massachusetts, spoken during floor debate over the Second Amendment; I Annals of Congress at 750, August 17, 1789: “What, Sir, is the use of a militia? It is to prevent the establishment of a standing army, the bane of liberty… Whenever Governments mean to invade the rights and liberties of the people, they always attempt to destroy the militia, in order to raise an army upon their ruins.”

        James Madison, I Annals of Congress 434: “The right of the people to keep and bear… arms shall not be infringed. A well regulated militia, composed of the body of the people, trained to arms, is the best and most natural defense of a free country…”

        Richard Henry Lee, “Additional Letters from the Federal Farmer”, 1788, at 169: “A militia, when properly formed, are in fact the people themselves… and include all men capable of bearing arms.”

        George Mason, 3 Elliot, Debates at 425-426: “I ask, sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people, except for few public officials.”

        Patrick Henry: “The militia is our ultimate safety. We can have no security without it. The great object is that every man be armed.”

        Tench Coxe: “Congress have no power to disarm the militia. Their swords, and every other terrible implement of the soldier, are the birthright of an American… The unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or state government, but, where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the hands of the people”.

        Bliss vs. Commonwealth, 12 Ky. (2 Litt.) 90, at 92, and 93, 13 Am. Dec. 251 (1822): “For, in principle, there is no difference between a law prohibiting the wearing of concealed arms, and a law forbidding the wearing such as are exposed; and if the former be unconstitutional, the latter must be so likewise. But it should not be forgotten, that it is not only a part of the right that is secured by the constitution; it is the right entire and complete, as it existed at the adoption of the constitution; and if any portion of that right be impaired, immaterial how small the part may be, and immaterial the order of time at which it be done, it is equally forbidden by the constitution.”

        Nunn vs. State, 1 Ga. (1 Kel.) 243, at 251 (1846): ” `The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.’ The right of the whole people, old and young, men, women and boys, and not militia only, to keep and bear arms of every description, and not such merely as are used by the militia, shall not be infringed, curtailed, or broken in upon, in the smallest degree; and all this for the important end to be attained: the rearing up and qualifying a well-regulated militia, so vitally necessary to the security of a free State. Our opinion is that any law, State or Federal, is repugnant to the Constitution, and void, which contravenes this right.”

        Thomas M. Cooley, General Principles of Constitutional Law, Third Edition: “The right [to bear arms] is general. It may be supposed from the phraseology of this provision that the right to keep and bear arms was only guaranteed to the militia; but this would be an interpretation not warranted by the intent. The militia, as has been explained elsewhere, consists of those persons who, under the laws, are liable to the performance of military duty, and are officered and enrolled for service when called upon…. [I]f the right were limited to those enrolled, the purpose of the guarantee might be defeated altogether by the action or the neglect to act of the government it was meant to hold in check. The meaning of the provision undoubtedly is, that the people, from whom the militia must be taken, shall have the right to keep and bear arms, and they need no permission or regulation of law for the purpose. But this enables the government to have a well regulated militia; for to bear arms implies something more than mere keeping; it implies the learning to handle and use them in a way that makes those who keep them ready for their efficient use; in other words, it implies the right to meet for voluntary discipline in arms, observing in so doing the laws of public order.”

        Al veterans that are going to keep their Oaths must train the people so that they can take their rightful and LAWFUL place in enforcement of the US Constitution and all that is in Pursuance thereof it, and each state’s Constitution; defend our borders, etc.

      5. WE can charge her after we do a Grand Jury Investigation, and require prosecution. The Grand Jury, Grand Jury Investigations, like the Militia are tools of the people and are under NO one who serves within any branch of our governments – state and general.

        As always, what goes on is up to us.

        We need to be knowledgeable about the US Constitution, our constitutional republic, our state Constitutions, the framers debates, etc.

        We need to use the constitutional tools left to us of enforcement within our nation, of the DELEGATED duties to those who serve within OUR governments.

      6. Thank you, CAL. Thank you for making it possible for me to be a Believer of my countrymen again. You have said what I would have said If only I were not so old and worn down….And besides, what can a Lone Old Person do but study and comment ? You are a breath of Hope to so many of us. Please keep it up ! You will awaken others that are now in comas.

      7. Cal….marvelous post and very informative, hands down one of the best I’ve ever read……some great quotes from Jefferson and Madison….. I would like to add one more Jefferson quote if I may….”The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of Patriots and Tyrants”….I am not proposing anything, just noting a quote from a very notable American…….just paying attention and being well prepared is always a great idea. Thanks again for your valuable post.

  21. I used to think that ‘we the people’ would prevail because there are more of us than there are of ‘them’. Sadly that does not work and won’t work because people on a global scale have been dumbed down and indoctrinated for decades into believing that the majority of leaders are basically honest and want only what is best for their own country. We’ve been used to placing blind trust in leaders to our own detriment and have failed to right the wrongs during its early stages.
    We gave too much power to leaders in the first place and they’ve used it against us. So yes, we’re definitely naive and apathetic…..we can accept no other verdict. But we must remember too that there are far more wicked people in the world than there are good people, so we’ve been duped into believing bad people are in the minority and thus can be weeded out. Not so, because bad leaders tend to get voted into office, and bad citizens embrace and assist them in their wickedness…..we see that everyday through the lying complicit media and the wicked leftist liberals who are vicious people, intent on being rebellious and immoral. Without morality, we cannot have a stable society.
    Leaders for the most part are in my opinion agents of the devil who have no scruples, hence they can be easily bribed and bought off….yet we continue to allow them to lead. We the people have to accept blame as being complicit because of our naivety and apathy…..who else can we blame? Certainly not the leaders, because who keeps putting them back into office to continue repeating the same abuses. Yes, we the people may feel we are being done unto, but we have to shoulder the blame for doing a lot of complaining and not enough time being pro-active and working to bring honor and integrity back into our society.

    1. “We gave too much power to leaders in the first place and they’ve used it against us. So yes, we’re definitely naive and apathetic…..we can accept no other verdict”

      NO, we did not give them too much power, you are incorrect in that assumption. Those that serve within our governments usurped powers that are not theirs to use.

      We are/were naive, but notice that every time Obama opens his mouth arms sells goes up, that is actions speaking louder then words. Do not believe because many do not speak, that they will not act in defense of our nation.

      Remember, the lies that is spewed forth from those that serve within our governments are many, and those that they hire/contract to make it seem that many agree or will do nothing, or are just plain stupid does not always apply.

      People are starting to realize that the 501c3 churches are bought and paid for government agencies, that the (corporate) media is a mouthpiece using treasonous talking heads to spout their propaganda.

      Never despair, though allow yourself sadness, and counter it with things you love to be as normal as one can in our times of trouble. Stay away from anything big pharma pushes, and READ the US Constitution – understand that EVERY single word and punctuation has meaning. If you do not understand turn to the debates, the framers words, old court decisions (much easier read then the ones today, and constitutional in nature (so far that I have found).

      Study the real history so that you can recognize it when you see it being repeated – and it IS being repeated.

      The only pro-active action you should be taking is to train to be the Militia of your state, as they are constitutionally mandated, join CPT teams, save seeds, learn a skill you can trade later if you do not have one, think about a business you can do, as we need AMERICAN manufacturing for America and the people – not this “stuff” we get from slave nations, etc.

      Brandon has a map above shows the locations of Local Groups formed by users. Whenever a new Local Barter Group becomes established, they will add it to the map! It can be found at that is handy.

      There are lots of positive things we can do, we just must get out of the paradigm they had us in, think for ourselves, come up with ideas, understand that not succeeding at first is learning how to do something in a better way and do them in a better way.

      What happens here in America is a large part dependent on us. One has to decide if they love our nation and our way of life enough to change to keep it, if so, do so.

    1. Buy gold if you feel like it, but you are not preparing for “patriotic martyrdom”.

      You are preparing to remove corrupt people who refuse to go, who created mass Election Fraud so we cannot change them to better people, who have created 2 factions (political parties) that run our elections unlawfully, etc.

      You are preparing to live as we should be under the US Constitution within our constitutional republic. It will be a change, but you will actually do better financially under a real money system, few taxes, no one taking (stealing) your property for unlawful yearly taxes (they can charge property tax one time when it is purchased, not carry a lease on it), etc.

      Be excited, as you can be what you want to be, as will your children, if any with no government or at least VERY minimal government interference. You will commit time to train for the Militia, but isn’t that better then the IRS, FDA, BLM, “civil forfeiture” (theft again), etc?

  22. Required to be members of The Federation of Planets: “the dissolution of all sovereign nations and the complete centralization of governance into the hands of a select few to save humanity from such destructive divisions.”
    Star Trek promoted globalization of societies quite openly.

  23. Left & Right is long dead, but here in Britain we have very skilled taxidermists. A few brave souls are breaking out, but the last business in the world to be deregulated will be politics. The weird thing is, we call these things ideologies, but the one thing that terrifies their followers is ideas.

  24. Absolutely correct, we need to question everything and do our own research. Kissinger has caused so much destruction in his path, along with Brezinski and others that are firmly committed to the globalist agenda. It is a complete illusion that we have a choice in choosing our President too, it has already been decided and the rest is a dog and pony show. Excellent article and thanks for all you do!
