Obama 2012 campaign conspired to register 11,000 in NC against state law

fraud

Only those who have eyes but refuse to see, and ears but refuse to hear, ignore the massive vote fraud that was perpetrated across America in the pivotal 2012 election.

As examples, there were:

  • 59 voting divisions in the city of Philadelphia where Mitt Romney did not receive a single vote.
  • Reports of voting machines repeatedly switching votes from Romney to Obama.
  • Counties with voter registration rates of more than 100%.
  • Reports of people unable to vote because records allegedly (and erroneously) showed they had already voted.
  • Reports of Obama voters being bussed in from outside the state.
  • An Obama campaign worker recorded on tape helping someone to register to vote in more than one state.
  • Tens of thousands of military overseas ballots being lost or delivered late.

For more, see “22 signs of Democrat Voter Fraud in 2012 Election,”

Despite all these reports and signs of vote fraud, neither the Romney campaign nor the Republican National Committee (RNC) did anything to expose the fraud or challenge the alleged election results.

If you’re wondering why and don’t know about a strange legal agreement signed by the RNC 30 years ago, the 1982 Consent Decree, in which the RNC agreed not to prevent or challenge vote fraud, see my post of Nov. 15, 2012, “Why the GOP won’t challenge vote fraud”.

And so it’s up to the American people and citizens groups to do the job of the useless Republican Party.

One such group is the Civitas Institute, a conservative organization in North Carolina dedicated to “The vision … of a North Carolina whose citizens enjoy liberty and prosperity derived from limited government, personal responsibility and civic engagement.”

James Simpson reports for Examiner.com, Feb. 20, 2013, that North Carolina does not allow online voting. But the Civitas Institute discovered that the North Carolina State Board of Elections (SBE) and the Obama 2012 Campaign conspired to register at least 11,000 people via the Internet in violation of state law. SBE staff authorized an Obama campaign website, Gottaregister.com, to use a web-based registration program.

Civitas has confirmed this through records requests filed with all of North Carolina’s 100 counties. The counting is not yet complete.

Currently California, Arizona, Colorado, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Oregon, Utah, Washington, Nevada, Maryland, and New York allow some form of online voter registration. North Carolina and many other states do not. For obvious reasons, this method is fraught with vulnerabilities to fraud.

Another, still on-going, study by Civitas Institute finds that 832 people over 112 voted by absentee ballot in 2012, but there are only 330 people over 110 in all of the U.S. according to the 2010 census. 68.5% of those amazing over-112-years-old Americans were Democrats (SURPRISE!), 27.5% Republicans, and 4% unaffiliated. A glitch causes ballots to default to January 1, 1900 when voters do not enter their birth date, which accounts for most of this. This is just one of many problems with NC voter rolls, which are in a shambles and vulnerable to fraudulent votes.

Simpson concludes:

“the Obama administration…have shown themselves over and over to be completely contemptuous of the law – from vote fraud to Fast-n-Furious; from Benghazi-gate to recess appointments and unconstitutional executive orders, the list is endless. As I described in a WorldNetDaily article last November, the Obama administration was willing to use whatever means at its disposal to win this election, legal and illegal. Up until now, my assumption has been that, while they plainly engaged in vote fraud in some circumstances, it wasn’t enough to throw the election. Depending upon whether or not they used tricks like this nationwide – and they probably did – they may have in fact stolen this election.”

“…the North Carolina State Board of Elections (SBE) and the Obama 2012 Campaign conspired to register at least 11,000 people via the Internet in violation of state law.”

GASP!!! That’s a conspiracy!!!

Just tell that to the next pretentious media personality snootily dismissing by deriding those looney “conspiracy theorists.”

Author Jack Cashill speaks up for Sandy Hook skeptics

Beware of the label “Conspiracy Theory.”

Although the definition of “conspiracyis simply “an agreement between two or more persons to commit an unlawful act,” the terms “conspiracy theory” and “conspiracy theorists” are equated with “crazy.”

As such, the label is an oft-used weapon to dismiss and discredit anyone who refuses to parrot the party line and instead has the audacity to ask questions about some handed-down “truth”. As if there aren’t real conspiracies: Kennedy’s Operations Northwood Conspiracy, Nixon’s Watergate Conspiracy, Reagan’s Iran-Contra Conspiracy, Obama’s Fast & Furious Conspiracy, and, of course, there’s the criminal Conspiracy called the Mafia.

So much for the much-priced “critical thinking” that’s in the standard publicity literature of U.S. colleges and universities to promote a liberal arts education.

The latest effort to brand skeptics as crazy is over Sandy Hook — the massacre of 26, including 20 first-grade children, at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, on December 14, 2012.

The official version of the massacre should be questioned if for no reasons than that:

  1. There are inconsistencies and anomalies in the official narrative, about which there are no answers because –
  2. A judge had put a gag on what police can tell us about the massacre.  On Dec. 27, 2012, State Superior Court Judge John Blawie ruled that search warrant affidavits for the cars and home of alleged lone shooter Adam Lanza and his mother would stay sealed beyond the normal 14-day period, for another 90 days, that is, until late March 2013.
  3. The massacre has serious policy consequences because it is used by the Obama regime to justify infringements on our Constitutional Second Amendment right to “bear arms.” As an example, Sen. Diane Feinstein (D-Calif) cited the “20 dead children in Newtown” as “a wakeup call” to America when she formally introduced the Assault Weapons Ban of 2013 — her bill to ban “assault weapons,” including rifles, shotguns, and handguns  (See “List of banned guns in Feinstein’s “assault weapons” bill,” Jan. 24, 2013.)

We expect the Left to dismiss Sandy Hook skeptics, but we didn’t expect pundits on “our side” to do so.

A writer for Glenn Beck’s site, The Blaze, did a hit piece on January 23, “This is The Blaze’s Point-by-Point Sandy Hook Conspiracy Theory Debunk.” Beck himself not only dismissed the skeptics, he went a mile further by making fun of us — just as he had mocked “birthers” as stupid. Mockery is a standard tool used to suppress questions and critical thinking.

A commenter on FOTM said that conservative radio talker and Fox TV personality Sean Hannity also dismisses Sandy Hook skeptics. Hannity evidently did not learn a lesson from having lost about half of his TV audience after last November 6′s election. The leftwing Salon attributes the loss to his viewers being disillusioned because Hannity had predicted a Romney win. Salon, of course, is wrong because if that’s the reason, then other conservative talkers should also have lost their audience. No, Salon, viewers and listeners are leaving Hannity in droves because after the Romney loss, Hannity said the GOP should try to be “more appealing” to women and Hispanics, in effect, by becoming a Democrat Party 2.0. When I heard that on his radio show, that was the last time I listened to Sean Hannity.

Here’s author Dr. Jack Cashill’s rejoinder to those who seek to stifle inquiries into the Sandy Hook massacre.

CNN #2 The school these police officers were running into is NOT Sandy Hook Elementary School. Aren’t you at all curious why CNN would do that? See “CNN deception: Live aerial footage of police running into Sandy Hook was of another school,” Jan. 22, 2013.

Debunking the Sandy Hook Debunkers

By Jack Cashill- American Thinker – Jan. 21, 2013

During the age of Obama, the major media have gone fully AWOL. If they fear that their reporting will lead to inconvenient discoveries, they simply stop their advance, lay down their notebooks, and disappear. This trend began in the Clinton years and picked up momentum after the 1994 electoral debacle, but the Clintons at least worried that the media might turn on them.

If Barack Obama ever had any such anxiety, the nonreporting on Fast and Furious, Benghazi and now Sandy Hook has had to reassure him. Sandy Hook is particularly disturbing because the truth is, or at least should have been, so accessible. This tragedy should never have spawned anything like a conspiracy theory, but it obviously has.

Protecting the major media’s flank during retreat are many and sundry well-funded leftist blogs — Huffington Post, The Daily Kos, Media Matters, and TPM among others. While the major media withdraw, the blogs attack those who might challenge the “narrative” the majors have left behind.

A case in point is a recent multi-media Huffington Post piece titled “Sandy Hook Conspiracy Theory Video Debunked By Experts.” In the video intro, HuffPo editor Meredith Bennett-Smith laughingly dismisses the various alternate theories of what transpired at Sandy Hook. Says Bennett-Smith, “That is what conspiracy theorists love to do. They put out a lot of questions, but they don’t necessarily provide a lot of answers.” When there is a Democrat in the White House, alas, anyone who asks a question becomes a conspiracy theorist.

Like too many alleged fact checkers, Bennett-Smith addresses only the least significant of the challenges to the Sandy Hook narrative: the alleged use of crisis actors, the memorials that predated the shooting, the confusion about what weapon was in Adam Lanza’s trunk. The “experts” she promises in the headline turn out to be other Obama-friendly fact checkers like David Mikkelson, founder of Snopes, and Robert Blaskiewicz, editor of a comparable blog called Skeptical Humanities. Absent in the piece is anyone who knows anything about guns or police work.

Predictably, what the HuffPo piece does not address are the two most troubling inconsistencies in the Sandy Hook reporting: the nature of the guns used and the presence or absence of a second shooter. Both questions have gained importance because of the White House’s obvious political exploitation of a ginned up “assault weapon” hysteria.

As to the guns, on December 15, one day after the shooting, NBC’s chief justice correspondent Pete Williams spoke with Today Show host Matt Lauer. Williams shared “new information” from a “couple of federal officials and state officials.” Said Williams, “They say now that there were actually four handguns recovered inside the school, not just two as we were initially told; four handguns and apparently only handguns that were taken into the school.” (Italics mine)

Williams said that Lanza also brought an “assault style, AR-15 style rifle” with him to school, but, he added, “We have been told by several officials that he left that in the car.” In the days that followed, the story would shift to the AR-15, not as the exclusive weapon — two handguns remained in the story — but as “the primary weapon used in the attack.” On December 19, CNN reported, “Police say Lanza’s rifle used numerous 30-round magazines.” By January 6, the Hartford Courant was reporting that Lanza used the handguns only to shoot himself.

This shift in reporting may be justified, and Williams’ sources may have been wrong, but why has no one at NBC addressed the discrepancy? The police had plenty of time to establish the nature of the weapons used that first day. Williams cited multiple police sources. He is a seasoned reporter on a show that takes itself seriously. In retrospect, it is easy to see why authorities would want to bend the narrative to an AR-15, but why would anyone have chosen to mislead Williams on day two?

Equally under-reported is the disposition of the second suspect. On day one, the media were reporting that the police had apprehended a likely second shooter. As CBS News reporter John Miller said definitively, “They have a second person in custody.” He pointed out that this was not at all unprecedented given that there were two shooters at Columbine. Fox News described this person as wearing a black jacket and camouflage pants. According to Fox, a SWAT team escorted him out of the woods.

The Alex Jones Channel, although not always reliable, put together a nonconspiratorial video using network news clips of the chase in the woods, the capture, and interviews with witnesses. ABC News interviewed both a well-spoken child and an adult who confirmed seeing the man in custody. “They did walk a guy out of the woods with handcuffs,” said the man. The fellow then pointed the reporter to a police car where the alleged second shooter was still sitting.

Admittedly, the media got much wrong on day one: the name of the shooter, the mother’s relationship to the school, the supposed murder of the father, but the media quickly walked this information back. If they retracted the stories about the four handguns or the second shooter — or even explained the discrepancies — I have been unable to find any clarification, and the Huffington Post piece provided none either.

Until I see firm evidence, I remain agnostic about the official Sandy Hook narrative. My investigations into TWA Flight 800 and the Oklahoma City bombing have taught me to be wary of an “evolving” story line. In those two tragedies, as is often the case, the early reporting was the most reliable.

With TWA Flight 800, for instance, all initial reporting pointed to a missile strike as the cause of the highly visible explosion that killed 230 people off the coast of Long Island in July 1996. In the weeks that followed, without any new evidence, the Clinton Justice Department ignored the 270 FBI eyewitnesses to a missile strike and shifted the storyline from a missile to a bomb.

The FBI talked exclusively to the New York Times, and the Times returned the favor by interviewing none of the eyewitnesses. The cherry-picked evidence led to the following above-the-fold headline four weeks after the disaster — “Prime Evidence Found That Device Exploded in Cabin of Flight 800.”

Although not as unnerving as a missile strike, the bomb scenario threatened the peace and prosperity message to be promoted at the Democratic National Convention just days away. Whether coordinated with the White House or not, the Times simply ceased reporting on the bomb. A month later, the official narrative shifted from a bomb to a center fuel tank explosion, a possibility that had been ruled out a month earlier. Like the networks at Sandy Hook, the Times never bothered to explain what happened to the evidence that led to the earlier conclusions.

In a similar spirit, days after the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing, the Washington Post reported specific FBI testimony describing “eyewitness accounts of a yellow Mercury with McVeigh and another man inside speeding away from a parking lot near the federal building.” (Italics mine)

The media, however, quickly lost interest in the swarthy John Doe No. 2. The likely reason is that If he proved to be an Islamic radical, it would be harder to blame the “Republican Revolution” for the bombing. At McVeigh’s trial, the Justice Department did not put a single one of the many reliable eyewitnesses on the stand because every one of them saw McVeigh with his foreign-looking accomplice. Again, the media chose not to notice the discrepancy. As Clinton himself acknowledged, Oklahoma City — i.e. the reporting on Oklahoma City — saved his presidency.

Bottom line: if the Democrat-media complex can turn an obvious missile strike into a mechanical failure and lose John Doe #2 to history, turning four handguns into an assault weapon and making a second shooter disappear is small beer.

Another “note” on Conspiracies

“Why do the nations…”

      –from Handel’s Messiah

Psalm 2 (NIV)
Why do the nations conspire 
  and the peoples plot in vain?
The kings of the earth rise up
  and the rulers band together
  against the Lord and against 
  his anointed, saying,
 “Let us break their chains
    and throw off their shackles.”

The One enthroned in heaven laughs;
  the Lord scoffs at them.
  He rebukes them in his anger
    and terrifies them in his wrath, saying,
“I have installed my king
  on Zion, my holy mountain.”

I will proclaim the Lord’s decree:
  He said to me, “You are my son;
    today I have become your father.
  Ask me,
    and I will make the nations your inheritance,
    the ends of the earth your possession.
  You will break them with a rod of iron;
    you will dash them to pieces like pottery.”

  Therefore, you kings, be wise;
    be warned, you rulers of the earth.
    Serve the Lord with fear
      and celebrate his rule with trembling.
  Kiss his son, or he will be angry
    and your way will lead to your destruction,
  for his wrath can flare up in a moment.
    Blessed are all who take refuge in him.

Still enjoying the theme? Here’s more from Handel’s Messiah.

“The Trumpet Shall Sound…”

1 Corinthians 15:52-53
For the trumpet will sound, 
  the dead will be raised imperishable, 
  and we will be changed. 
For the perishable must clothe itself 
  with the imperishable, 
    and the mortal with immortality.

Take heart dear readers,
the Lord Almighty is on His throne.
Pleasant dreams tonight. ~ TD

Regarding Conspiracy Theories

FEMA Camps, Freemasons, Illuminati, Bohemian Grove, False Flag, and all their vile cousins are terms that haunt us (me). They sometimes make sleep hard to find. Some people whistle thru the graveyard; I prefer to renew my courage with God’s word and His fellowship.

Conspiracy is nothing new.

Serpent

Serpent

Ever since the expulsion from the Garden, humans have exhibited a tendency toward conspiracy. In fact, Eve’s and Adam’s original sin was a conspiracy with the serpent, intended to challenge their Creator.

In the book of Proverbs, after the prologue and call to honor the advice of parents, the first “nuts and bolts” piece of advice is to avoid entering into conspiracy!

Proverbs 1 verses 10-19
My son, if sinful men entice you,
    do not give in to them.
  If they say, “Come along with us;
    let’s lie in wait for innocent blood,
      let’s ambush some harmless soul;
  let’s swallow them alive, like the grave,
    and whole, like those who go down to the pit;
  we will get all sorts of valuable things
    and fill our houses with plunder;
   cast lots with us;
    we will all share the loot”—
my son, do not go along with them,
    do not set foot on their paths;
  for their feet rush into evil,
    they are swift to shed blood.
How useless to spread a net
    where every bird can see it!
  These men lie in wait for their own blood;
    they ambush only themselves!
  Such are the paths of all who go 
    after ill-gotten gain;
      it takes away the life 
        of those who get it.

For me, this sheds an encouraging light on those who choose to resist conspiracies.

Neocon Movement Jewish Plot to Destroy Islam

In my over forty-eight years of circling the sun on this rock, I was pretty confident I had heard just about every kooky Jewish conspiracy theory in existence.

As far back as I can remember, I have heard how the Jews had taken over this and that, and were scheming to take over everything else – all in an effort to ultimately dominate the entire planet.

That would be a pretty tall order for a group of people that make up the smallest minority on Earth.

I guess it is just human nature on the part of many to blame this tiny minority for all the world’s ills, as it has been going on since the earliest beginnings of recorded history.

Now someone has come up with what has to be the Mother of all Jewish conspiracy theories:

Via weaselzippers.us (highlights are mine):

U.S.-Based Political Scientist Muhammad Waqi’ullah: The Neocon Movement, Established by Jews, Plans to Destroy the Islamic World by Brute Force and through “Harmless” Films like Superman, Tom and Jerry

Following are excerpts from an interview with Muhammad Waqi’ullah, a US-based Sudanese professor of political science, which aired on Al-Majd TV on June 4, 2012. Waqi’ullah received his Ph.D. from the University of Mississippi, and worked for the Institute of Islamic and Arabic Sciences in America in Fairfax, Virginia.

Muhammad Waqi’ullah: The neocon movement was established at US universities, especially at the University of Chicago. It was established by a group of Jewish professors, who fled Nazism. They wanted to fortify Western civilization against the leftist, secular, Nazi, and Fascist invasion.

Ultimately, they wanted to protect the Israelites, or the Jews, from annihilation by Western civilization. They infiltrated Western ideology, and specifically, American ideology, until the circumstances, under Bush Jr., enabled them to gain control over the country’s centers of power and to implement their ideas.

This led to the invasions with which they destroyed Islam and the Islamic world.

[...]

The neocons developed a very dangerous theory concerning the Islamic world. They taught it in the most important university – the National Defense University, in Maryland [sic].

Interviewer: What is this theory?

Muhammad Waqi’ullah: The destruction of the entire Islamic world.

Interviewer: Destruction?!

Muhammad Waqi’ullah: Yes, the destruction of the entire Islamic world by brute force. The US Department of Defense denounced this seminar, and issued a communiqué condemning it.

Interviewer: They based it on the theory of the clash [of civilizations].

Muhammad Waqi’ullah: Yes. But the [neocons] are now defeated. The liberal movement is the dominant one today. The liberal, pseudo-leftist movement is now dominant, under the leadership of that American… Obama.

Interviewer: Can soft power be exploited to embellish the use of hard power? The neocons reject soft power, but surely some people use it to embellish hard power.

Muhammad Waqi’ullah: This is extremely widespread in the American media, as well as in school curricula, and in the prevalent popular culture. The theory of hard power is based upon the principle of the rule of the strong, and the weakening and annihilation of the weak. The weak has no right to live. Only the strongest and the fittest are allowed to survive.

This theory emanates from biology. Darwin observed that the weak is always annihilated. It cannot cope with the climatic or environmental conditions, and it becomes extinct. He said that the same goes for human beings. A weak human, a weak civilization, a weak country, or a weak culture must be vanquished, in order to make way for the white race, for the strong, for “superman.” This is the “End of History” theory, established by Francis Fukayama – as you surely know better than others. The white man will seal history and rule supreme, and all other civilizations must be vanquished at the end of history.

[...]

The Muslim fights for the sake of good, while the infidel fights for the sake of evil. It is a war of values, not of material interests or personal or national ambitions. It is a war of civilizations, a war of values. Islamic civilization defends the good.

[...]

Some films look the epitome of innocent, purity, and reliability. They look like nice harmless films, like the Superman movies or Tom and Jerry. People don’t sense the danger of these films, but these films instill Western philosophy, the theory of Thomas Hobbes [sic], which we discussed.

Interviewer: The survival of the fittest…

Muhammad Waqi’ullah: Exactly. The strong should survive, whereas the weak should be ridiculed, exterminated, and wiped out of existence.

-End of excerpt

Personally, I think the professor has been hitting his hashish-filled water pipe a little hard.

The scary thing is that we in America actually allow garbage like this to be taught in our institutions of “higher learning.”

Weather Modification is Real

The word “conspiracy” refers to a secret plan by two or more persons, usually to commit some unlawful act.

The mainstream media tend to sneer at conspiracy theories, although there are many real instances of conspiracy theories in history, such as the Mafia, the Dreyfus Affair, the plot to assassinate Hitler, the Manhattan Project, asbestos, Watergate, and the CIA’s illegal, downright evil, mind-altering human experiment MK-ULTRA.

Having said that, it doesn’t mean that every conspiracy theory is true; some are conjured by crackpots from nothing but their paranoiac feverish imagination. Each conspiracy theory must be examined on its own — for internal consistency (the claims can’t be self-contradictory or illogical) and its empirical evidence, if there’s even evidence at all. If there isn’t (“The conspiracy is so secret, no one knows about it, except I!”), then sadly, the theory doesn’t pass the necessary criterion of verifiability.

One of the conspiracy theories that thrive on the WorldWideWeb is weather modification, e.g., HAARP (High Frequency Active Auroral Research Project) .

In this video, we have George Bomar, a spokesman for Weather Modification, Inc. (WMI), a business headquartered in Fargo, North Dakota, admitting to and boasting about its successful weather modification to seed clouds in Texas.

Weather Modification, Inc. says this about itself:

“Now, more than ever, the worldwide need for solutions to atmospheric necessities such as water resource management and environmental quality monitoring, is critical. With nearly a half-century of successful programs, our experience speaks for itself. Let us help you better manage your atmospheric and water resources.” [bolded letters are WMI's]

WMI claims a worldwide client list — in Antigua, Argentina, Australia, Burkina-Faso, Canada, Greece, India, Indonesia, Jordan, Mali, Mexico, Morocco, Saudi Arabia, Senegal, Spain, Thailand, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, and of course, the United States:

“The proven success of Weather Modification, Inc., in atmospheric and weather operations is evident by our lengthy and impressive client listing speaks for itself. Our reputation for successful cloud seeding and meteorological services leads our veteran pilots, experienced meteorologists and radar engineers around the world. Our valued clients include private and public insurance companies, water resource management organizations, as well as federal and state government research organizations.”

WMI’s U.S. clients include:

  • The U.S. federal government: Department of Defense’s Aeromet Inc.-L3 Communications (what’s that?); Federal Aviation Administration; National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration; BAMEX (Bow Echo and Mesoscale Convective Vortex Experiment), of the U.S. Weather Research Program; CALIPSO (CloudSat Validation Experiment), of NASA; Naval Surface Warfare Center (!).
  • State governments: cloud seeding for Delaware, Nevada, Texas; “cloud modification,” thunderstorm, and “tracer experiment” for North Dakota; “weather modification” for Oklahoma, Texas, Utah, Wyoming;
  • Local governments: e.g., California’s Santa Barbara Water Agency.
  • Universities, e.g., U. of North Dakota, U. of Arizona.
  • Private entities, e.g., Sonoma Technology, Inc.

Cloud seeding seems innocuous enough. But what about other weather modification programs by governments and corporations?

Wikileaks Confirms North American Union Conspiracy. Obama Signs Trucking Agreement w/ Mexico

An effective way to combat an opposing group, belief, or opinion is to characterize it as a “conspiracy theory.” That term immediately conjures in the mind images of tinfoil-hat wearing kooks.

But when we examine the dictionary definition for “conspiracy” — any secret agreement between two or more persons to undertake an illegal, wrongful, or subversive act — then the notion that there are conspiracies is not so far-fetched. For that matter, the very existence of a federal law called RICO — Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act – is an acknowledgment that conspiracies exist!

The plain fact is that not all conspiracies are imaginary. There are at least 30 conspiracy theories that turn out to be true, including the Mafia, the CIA’s MK-ULTRA, asbestos, Watergate, the Tuskegee syphilis study, and the 1944 conspiracy to assassinate Hitler.

Now, a Wikileaks document confirms that the North American Union agenda to merge the United States, Canada and Mexico into a single monetary and political body is not some kooky fringe “conspiracy theory,” but a real conspiracy. Robert Hilz reports for Canada’s National Post, June 2, 2011:

The integration of North America’s economies would best be achieved through an “incremental” approach, according to a leaked U.S. diplomatic cable.

The cable, released through the WikiLeaks website and apparently written Jan. 28, 2005, discusses some of the obstacles surrounding the merger of the economies of Canada, the United States and Mexico in a fashion similar to the European Union.

“An incremental and pragmatic package of tasks for a new North American Initiative (NAI) will likely gain the most support among Canadian policymakers,” the document said. “The economic payoff of the prospective North American initiative … is available, but its size and timing are unpredictable, so it should not be oversold.” [...]

In the cable, U.S. diplomats focused on a number of key areas to move forward with continental integration, including a possible common currency, labour markets, international trade and the borders of the three countries.

The North American Union conspiracy is proceeding according to plan. A week ago, the United States and Mexico signed an agreement allowing trucks from each nation to travel on the other country’s highways – a key provision of NAFTA.

Howard LaFranchi reports for The Christian Science Monitor, July 6, 2011, that under the agreement, the US will reinstate a pilot program for Mexican truck certification that was introduced under the Bush administration – and defunded by an angry Congress in 2009. Mexico, in turn, will immediately drop half of the tariffs on about 100 US products, with the rest to be removed when Mexican trucks actually start rolling across the border. The accord requires all Mexican trucks operating in the US to comply with US safety standards, and it mandates the installation of monitoring devices to track truck usage and compliance with service requirements.

The Obama administration’s US Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood signed the agreement despite fears of unsafe Mexican trucks barreling along US highways, driven by unprofessional Mexican truckers, and in spite of growing resistance, especially in the US Congress, to free-trade provisions with Mexico.

Obama Admin to Concoct Phony ePeople for Propaganda

Sunstein also thinks government should stop sanctioning marriage; federal law should be interpreted by presidents "and those around him" instead of judges; and Americans should not have the right to “keep and bear arms.”

According to an article in Computerworld, the Obama administration has contracted for the development of software that could create multiple fake social media profiles to manipulate and sway public opinion on controversial issues.

This has the fingerprints of Obama’s Information Czar Cass Sunstein all over it.

In a 2008 co-authored paper, “Conspiracy Theories,” published in the Journal of Political Philosophy, Sunstein decries the proliferation on the Internet of false conspiracy theories that he claims may ultimately lead to violence. Sunstein then outlines a plan for the government to stealthily infiltrate ‘”conspiracy theory” groups. He proposes that “government agents (and their allies) might enter chat rooms, online social networks, or even real-space groups and attempt to undermine percolating conspiracy theories by raising doubts about their factual premises, causal logic or implications for political action.” [Sources: Wikipedia and "Obama Czar Wants to Limit Free Speech"]

Here’s the Computerworld article that, woefully, is rather poorly written.

Army of Fake Social Media Friends to Promote Propaganda

By Darlene Storm - Computerworld – Feb 23, 2011

It’s recently been revealed that the U.S. government contracted HBGary Federal for the development of software which could create multiple fake social media profiles to manipulate and sway public opinion on controversial issues by promoting propaganda. It could also be used as surveillance to find public opinions with points of view the powers-that-be didn’t like. It could then potentially have their “fake” people run smear campaigns against those “real” people. As disturbing as this is, it’s not really new for U.S. intelligence or private intelligence firms to do the dirty work behind closed doors.

EFF previously warned that Big Brother wants to be your friend for social media surveillance. While the FBI Intelligence Information Report Handbook (PDF) mentioned using “covert accounts” to access protected information, other government agencies endorsed using security exploits to access protected information.

It’s not a big surprise that the U.S. military also wants to use social media to its benefit. Last year, Public Intelligence published the U.S. Air Force social media guide which gave 10 tips for social media such as, “The enemy is engaged in this battlespace and you must engage there as well.” Number three was “DON’T LIE. Credibility is critical, without it, no one cares what you have to say…it’s also punishable by the UCMJ to give a false statement.” The Air Force used the chart below to show how social media influences public opinion.

The 6th Contracting Squadron at MacDill Air Force Base sought the development of Persona Management Software which could be used for creating and managing fake profiles on social media sites to distort the truth and make it appear as if there was a generally accepted agreement on controversial issues. “Personas must be able to appear to originate in nearly any part of the world and can interact through conventional online services and social media platforms.” What happened to don’t lie and the Uniform Code of Military Justice?

Everything revealed after Anonymous leaked emails from private security firm HBGary Federal is disturbing on many levels. However, the Daily Kos said with the Persona Management Software it would take very few people to create “an army of sockpuppets” which could distort the truth while appearing to be “an entire Brooks Brothers riot online.”

So again I ask, what happened to number three . . . the rule about not lying that was also “punishable by the UCMJ to give a false statement”?

President and CEO of Plessas Experts Network, Inc, Kirby Plessas pointed out some of the unethical and potentially illegal activities that Aaron Barr’s leaked emails suggested like “Chumming and baiting” which sounded like “entrapment of some sort.” There would be no warrant for the data collected on individuals which could then be stored for how long? “THIS is the entire reason Intelligence Oversight was created – to avoid this sort of thing from ever happening again.”

According to Redacted News, the leaked emails showed how names can be cross-referenced across social media sites to collect information on people and then used to gain access to those social ciricles. The emails also talked of how Facebook could be used to spread government messages:

Even the most restrictive and security conscious of persons can be exploited. Through the targeting and information reconnaissance phase, a person’s hometown and high school will be revealed. An adversary can create a classmates.com account at the same high school and year and find out people you went to high school with that do not have Facebook accounts, then create the account and send a friend request.

Under the mutual friend decision, which is where most people can be exploited, an adversary can look at a targets friend list if it is exposed and find a targets most socially promiscuous friends, the ones that have over 300-500 friends, friend them to develop mutual friends before sending a friend request to the target. To that end friend’s accounts can be compromised and used to post malicious material to a targets wall. When choosing to participate in social media an individual is only as protected as his/her weakest friend.

Lots of people have multiple online aliases, Facebook or Twitter accounts for both business and private life. What most bothers me is the lying and seemingly unethical means to an end. Although the government says it doesn’t approve of censorship, etc, when its secrets come to light, it seems to be Okay with recommending underhanded tactics.

Secretary Clinton delivered a speech called, “Internet Rights and Wrongs: Choices and Challenges In A Networked World.” To help promote and support Internet freedom, the State Department intends to award $25 million in grants. While that is great news, the EFF reported, “For every strong statement about preserving liberty, freedom of expression, and privacy on the global Internet, there exists a countervailing example of the United States attempting to undermine those same values.”

Secretary Clinton later told “This Week” anchor Christiane Amanpou that most Americans “are in favor of human rights, freedom, democracy. We know that ultimately the most progress that can be made on behalf of human beings anywhere is when those individuals are empowered, when they have governments that are responsive.” Clinton added, “At the same time, we recognize that this process can be hijacked. It can be hijacked by both outside and inside elements within any country.”

So while the U.S. government can talk a good talk, what it does and what it says often doesn’t seem to jive. Gasp, I know, it’s not a big shocker but sometimes I find that utterly frustrating. The President wanted an Internet Kill Switch, the FBI keeps pushing for backdoors on all-things-Net. What happened to a code of ethics? Does it disappear behind closed doors, dirty deeds done in the dark and used against the American people who are supposed to be free to express themselves?

The Satanic Rothschild

WARNING: When I first saw the pictures that you’ll see below, I felt sick to my stomach. It wasn’t a physical sickness but a spiritual sense of such palpable evil that my soul felt ill. Say a prayer for God’s protection before you read further. I recommend the powerful Prayer to St. Michael, HERE.

Anyone who’s been on the Internet cannot avoid coming across dark warnings about the Illuminati — a purported conspiratorial organization that acts as a shadowy “power behind the throne” or “the power that be” (TPTB), a modern incarnation or continuation of the Enlightenment-era Bavarian Illuminati, a secret society founded on May 1, 1776. It is said that the Illuminati are the masterminds who actually control world affairs through governments and corporations, eventuating in the establishment of a one-world government — the New World Order.

Membership of the Illuminati variously is said to include the Council on Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission, the Jesuits, the British Royal family, other European royal families, and a number of non-royal family bloodlines that include, most prominently, the Rockefellers and the Rothschilds. Here’s the first paragraph of the Wikipedia entry on the Rothschild family:

The Rothschild family (known as The House of Rothschild, or more simply as the Rothschilds) is a European family of German [Ashkenazi] Jewish origin that established European banking and finance houses from the late eighteenth century. Five lines of the Austrian branch of the family were elevated into the Austrian nobility, being given hereditary baronies of the Habsburg Empire by Emperor Francis II in 1816. The British branch of the family was elevated into the British nobility at the request of Queen Victoria. It has been argued that during the 19th century, the family possessed by far the largest private fortune in the world, and by far the largest fortune in modern history.

Frederick Morton, in his 1962 book, The Rothschilds, gave an estimate of the Rothschild wealth at over $6 billion in 1850. The blogger who calls himself Markus Angelicus (the Angel Mark, most certainly a pseudonymous nom de plume) estimates that taking $6 billion (and assuming no erosion of the wealth base) and compounding that figure at various returns on investment (a conservative range of 4% to 8%) would suggest the following net worth of the Rothschild family enterprise, as of 1997:

  • $1.9 trillion (@4%)
  • $7.8 trillion (@5%)
  • $31.5 trillion (@6%)
  • $125,189.1 trillion (@7%)
  • $491,409 trillion (@8%)

Some claim the Illuminati to be mainly if not wholly Jewish. Others, such as Henry Makow (who is a Jew), identify the Illuminati not with a particular racial or ethnic group but by their common spiritual perversity — Satanism. In Makow’s words:

The Illuminati consist of…some of the world’s richest families including the Rothschilds, the Rockefellers and the Windsors. While they pay lip service to religion, they worship Lucifer. Their agents control the world’s media, education, business and politics. These agents may think they are only pursuing success, but success literally means serving the devil.  Prisoners of their wealth, the Illuminati prefer hatred and destruction to Love. Understandably, they can’t go public with this. They pretend to be moral while working behind the scenes to degrade and enslave humanity in a “new world order.”

At this point you’re probably rolling your eyes and making the “ding-ding ding-ding ding-ding” Twilight Zone sound. Admittedly, while this mother of all conspiracy theories makes for interesting reading, I’d always retained my skepticism.

For one, conspiracy theories by their very nature are difficult, if not impossible, to prove/verify or disconfirm –  “It’s secret ’cause it’s a conspiracy!” If you ask a conspiracy theorist (CT), “If it’s such a conspiracy, then how do you know all this?”, the CT either says “I just know” or “Well, TPTB leak clues and leave hints of their plans because they are so arrogant and cocky.” If you bring up a counter-argument such as “But how do you account for there being these powerful wealthy groups that don’t agree with each other?,” the CT replies, “You see, there are contending factions within TPTB.” And so on and so forth. In other words, the CT is always right no matter what, which makes the Illuminati conspiracy theory air- and water-tight, impervious to counter-evidence or counter-arguments.

The flawed epistemology of conspiracy theories such as the one about the Illuminati makes me all the more skeptical until I saw pictures of a Rothschild — the Baroness Philippine de Rothschild — in an article on Makow’s website.

The Baroness Philippine Mathilde Camille de Rothschild (born Paris, France, 22 November 1933) is the only daughter of the vintner Baron Philippe de Rothschild, a member of the Rothschild banking dynasty and owner of the French winery Château Mouton Rothschild.

Rothschild entered her father’s wine business in the late 1970s. When Philippe died in 1988, Philippine inherited three winery estates in Bordeaux. At the time of her father’s death, the company sold 1.3 million cases of wine a year. By 2000, sales had almost doubled to 2.1 million cases. In 1999, sales amounted to around $155 million. Her personal wealth has been estimated at €190 million by Le Nouvel Economiste.

Below are photos of the Baroness. Note that in every picture she wears a heavy chainlinked gold necklace with a pendant. The pendant in the first pic below is a huge image of Baphomet, a pagan deity that, since the 19th century, has become  a figure or synonym of Satan.

The humanoid goat Baphomet figure was first drawn and popularized in 1854 by occultist Eliphas Lévi. In his book, Dogme et Rituel de la Haute Magie (“Dogmas and Rituals of High Magic”), Lévi included an image he had drawn himself which he described as Baphomet and “The Sabbatic Goat” — showing a winged humanoid goat with a pair of breasts and a torch on its head between its horns.  Levi called his image “The Goat of Mendes.” Lévi’s Baphomet is the source of the later Tarot image of the Devil, in the Rider-Waite design. The symbol of the goat in the downward-pointed pentagram was adopted as the official symbol — called the Sigil of Baphomet — of the Church of Satan, and continues to be used among Satanists. [Source: Wikipedia]

Here are pics of Rothschild wearing pendants that are more stylized or abstract versions of the Baphomet:

The goat’s or ram’s horns

Here’s a gallery of 4 pics showing Rothschild wearing the Baphomet pendant from its most literal to more abstract representations. Remember that this woman is one of the wealthiest people on Earth who can wear any piece of jewelry she desires, but again and again she chooses to wear these big ugly Satanic pendants on big, heavy, gold chain necklaces.

Here’s a younger Rothschild wearing a pendant of an angel silhouette (remember that Lucifer and the other demons are fallen angels!). It’s interesting that as she grows older, she’s become bolder and more in-your-face with her Satanic jewelry, now wearing unmistakably Baphomet pendants as the one in the first pic above:

Here’s a pic of a bottle of red wine from one of her wineries, Chateau Mouton Rothschild. Note the serpent; the words “cou cou” (which is French for “neck neck”) coming out of the mouth of the bodiless head in top right; the headless female figure below the serpent on the left; and the glass of red liquid (wine or blood?) right below “cou cou”:

I leave you to draw your own conclusions….
