Wayne Allyn Root on Obama's Gestapo

Wayne Allyn Root
Obama’s America
Obama is going rogue. By every metric the Obama economy is melting down. We are seeing the beginning stages of another recession at best, or a total economic meltdown at worst.
At the moment there are no decent paying jobs in America. Obama has opened the border and given amnesty to at least 5 million illegal aliens already in the country, thereby putting them in competition with working class and middle class Americans.
Think I’m wrong? Did you know the government is giving businesses a $3000 incentive to hire illegal’s over native-born Americans?
Did you know cities are hiring non-citizens (and even illegal aliens given amnesty by Obama) as policemen? All you need is a work permit. Someone here illegally can wear a badge and enforce the law against you.
Did you think the border crisis was over? Obama’s amnesty has encouraged a new wave of poverty-stricken illegals at the border.
And, in a bankrupt nation with over $18 trillion in debt, Obama has used amnesty to give illegals access to food stamps, free healthcare, Medicaid, Medicare, Social Security, earned income tax credits…and by issuing drivers licenses and Social Security cards they will be able to vote immediately (because States don’t have the technology to tell the difference between a legal citizen or a noncitizen, legal or not).
The Obamacare fiasco gets worse by the day. The middle class is being bankrupted by skyrocketing increases in their health insurance premiums; hospitals are being bankrupted by the flood of illegal aliens accessing services; and the economy will drown in the new debt caused by Obamacare.
Obama’s claim that ISIS is on the run is a proven fraud, ripped bare by America’s embarrassing military withdrawl from Yemen.
Obama is going nuclear in his hatred for Bibi Netanyahu and Israel, force-feeding the world a weak nuclear agreement with Iran that is so bad, even France is fighting for stronger sanctions. Meanwhile Obama threatens to become the first president in history to abandon Israel at the United Nations.
But, I haven’t gotten to the bad part yet. Is it possible the terrible news about the economy, the border, ISIS and Israel is all just a distraction? Because the really important news is that Obama has created a modern-day version of “the Gestapo.”
The Obama government is using an initiative called “Operation Chokepoint” to force legal businesses it doesn’t like out of business, by threatening and intimidating banks and credit card processors.
At the same time, the Obama government is urging banks to call the police to report citizens who withdraw $5000 or more from their own bank accounts. Yes, I said banks are urged to call the police, when you withdraw your own money.
This comes at the same time that FEMA announced it will no longer provide FEMA disaster relief funds to states whose Governors deny “climate change.”
And let’s not forget Obama used an FCC party-line vote to take over the Internet and institute sweeping new changes to a system that is working perfectly as the form of communication for most Americans.
Obama’s first goal is clearly massive new taxes on Internet usage, just another way to destroy the middle class and redistribute income. But is his real goal controlling communications on the Internet- specifically the anti-Obama criticism and anti-government message so prevalent on the Internet.
But let’s circle back to the most Gestapo-like Obama initiative ever. It’s called “Operation Chokepoint.” This is your government’s attempt to put morality controls (just like those in Iran) on the American public by shutting down gun stores, precious metals companies, casinos, tobacco distributors, telemarketers, and short-term money lenders.
How can they close legal businesses you ask? By threatening and intimidating banks and credit card processors to close accounts for businesses the government doesn’t like. Just like an Iranian Ayatollah, if Obama doesn’t like your business, he will “choke off” your ability to stay in business. Hence the name, “Operation Chokepoint.”
Never forget Obama has been on a 6-year long relentless crusade to raise our taxes and take away our tax deduction for charitable donations, choking off contributions to churches. Yes, Obama is trying to “choke off” the funding that keeps churches in business too.
Why is this happening? First, because Obama despises capitalism. He needs to put prosperous businesses out of business. By murdering the middle class’s ability to prosper, he creates his utopia of equality (ie “shared misery”), making everyone dependent on government in a classless, socialist society. Think Cuba and Venezuela.
Second, there is an obvious reason Obama hates these particular industries. The subtitle of my 2009 book, “The Conscience of a Libertarian” says it all. The subtitle was “Empowering the Citizen Revolution with God, Guns, Gold, Gambling & Tax Cuts.” Is it a coincidence that virtually every item I mentioned is under attack?
The businesses on the list of “Operation Chokepoint” are all dominated by people that Obama would describe as capitalists, patriots, conservatives, Tea Partiers, Christians and supporters of the Constitution. Not coincidently, those are the same groups targeted by Obama in the IRS scandal.
And then of course, if Obama can’t close your business, or “choke off” your ability to prosper, he can force banks to call the police if you dare to withdraw money from your own account.
Folks this is eerily reminiscent of The Gestapo, or the Soviet KGB, or the East German Stasi.
Is this the America you want? The NSA spying on your every move…the federal government in charge of your healthcare and now your free speech on the Internet…the IRS auditing enemies and critics of the government…the federal government forcing legal businesses they deem “unacceptable” out of business…and banks spying on their own customers and being forced to call the police when customers withdraw too much of their own money.
Yes, under Barack Hussein Obama the Gestapo is alive and well in the former “Land of the Free.”

Why I Pray for the Man Who Calls Himself Obama

Why I Pray for the Man Who Calls Himself Obama
I don’t think that I have ever felt so much anger towards a single person as I do towards the man who calls himself Obama. When I think of the blatant destruction that he and his cabal of communist usurpers have brought to this country via illegitimate authority: the economic destitution, the destruction of sacred marriage, the persecution and attacks on conservatives and Christians, the ruined lives, the wrecked marriages, the murder of millions of babies, the deliberate tearing down of racial progress and the proliferation of racist policies and actions, etc., I am at a loss to come up with another person in my lifetime that more personifies the word evil.
Yet, I pray for the man.
Why? Because if there’s anyone who has done more to deliberately chart a course to his own eternal damnation in the fires of hell, it’s him. Yet I know that God loves him.
For the same reason, I pray for Holder, and Hillary, and Reid, and Jarrett, and Biden, and Pelosi, and Boxner, and Feinstein, and all the rest.
They are sowing the seeds of their own damnation. Yet God loves them.
I’ll admit, it’s hard to pray for these people. It takes effort. Yet the more I do it, the easier it becomes.
Perhaps one of them will be saved. Perhaps one of them will see the light and the errors of their ways. On the one hand, I’m not optimistic. On the other hand, I know that all things are possible with God.

Wayne Allyn Root Puts aka-Obama at the Scene of the Crime

Wayne Allyn Root
I Can Put Obama at the Scene of the Crime
Posted by Wayne Root on July 28, 2014 Comments Off
As published at World Net Daily
By Wayne Allyn Root
My new book, “The Murder of the Middle Class” launched Monday July 14th across America. It’s about how America, the greatest nation in world history, is being destroyed by the purposeful “Murder of the Middle Class” and death of the American Dream. It is not happening by accident, mistake, or coincidence. This is a purposeful plan. This is the greatest conspiracy in world history.
The ringleader is Barack Obama and I can put Obama at the scene of the crime.
How can I do that? I was Barack Obama’s classmate at Columbia University, Class of ’83. You need to know about Obama and his plan to “murder the middle class” To stop it we first have to understand it.
First, at Columbia we were repeatedly told America is a land of “unfairness, inequality, and lack of social justice.” Recognize those words? My classmates proudly called themselves progressives and socialists, even Marxists. They talked about how to dismantle the “power structure”, the rich and the business owners- especially white ones. This is especially interesting since almost all my Columbia classmates were spoiled-brat white kids from the best prep schools in America, where their massive white guilt brainwashing started early.
We were taught to hate capitalism and believe it had to be destroyed so America’s wealth could be redistributed to create “fairness and equality.” Sound familiar?
At Columbia we studied “The Communist Manifesto,” Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” and the Cloward and Piven plan to transform America.
In 1981 a student burst through the doors to our political science class and screamed “The President has been shot. They’ve assassinated Reagan”… my classmates yelled, hugged, high-fived, jumped up and down cheered (what they mistakenly thought was) the death of a Republican President. Today those classmates are in government with Obama, or controlling the mainstream media. They may talk about “moderation and compromise,” but remember, 30 years ago they cheered for the death of a Republican President.
Most importantly, we were taught a simple, but brilliant plan called “Cloward-Piven,” after former Columbia professors Richard Cloward and Frances Piven. The plan called for the destruction of capitalism and American exceptionalism by overwhelming the system with massive spending, entitlements and debt. That would collapse the economy, wipe out the middle class, and bring Americans to their knees, begging government to save them. Sound familiar? It’s the exact plan Obama has been implementing.
We were taught at Columbia a key component of the plan involved fooling the voters by calling yourself “moderate”, never admit your real goals. We were taught to demonize your opponents, calling them evil, greedy, extreme, radical, and even “terrorist.” Put your opponents on the defense by calling them the very things you are. Lie, misrepresent, and commit fraud because “The ends justify the means.” Obama learned well.
Obama claims Obamacare is about “saving the uninsured”, when its real objective is income redistribution to destroy the middle class. Environmental regulations are to “protect us from global warming,” when its real goal is bankrupting the middle class by tripling utility bills. Immigration reform is always about “protecting innocent children,” when its real goal is to create 12 million new Democratic voters. High taxes are to “create equality,” when they are all about starving Obama’s political opposition. Obscene government spending is always about “helping widows and orphans,” as opposed to creating more debt to overwhelm the system. Higher teacher salaries are “for the kids,” as opposed to enriching teachers unions so they can funnel hundreds of millions to Democrat politicians. Bailing out GM was to “save jobs,” as opposed to saving bloated auto union pensions.
It’s always about lying to cover-up the real agenda of murdering the middle class, redistributing wealth, and putting big government in control of our every move.
The key to it all is to “boil the frog slowly,” something we also learned at Columbia. Set the fire low, so the frog (in this case the middle class) wouldn’t know what was happening until he’s cooked.
That’s why Obama starts and ends every speech with “I’m here to save the middle class,” while his actions are annihilating them. He’s boiling the frog slowly. By the time the middle class realizes he’s the killer, and we’re the prey, we’ll already be dead.
So you see, it’s not due to coincidence, incompetence, or even George Bush. It’s all according to plan. A plan Obama learned at Columbia. Everything Obama does, and everything happening to the U.S. economy, all started at Columbia. The entire Obama agenda to overwhelm the system, destroy capitalism, and murder the middle class was hatched at Columbia. Obama may not have attended class, but he learned well. He should have received the Karl Marx Award for “Student Most Likely to Destroy America.”
That’s why Columbia matters. You must know your enemy before you can defeat him. Columbia University is a window into Obama’s soul. That’s why I’ve spent the last year writing the “Murder of the Middle Class,” to give all American’s the information and tools to save the middle class and the American Dream. This fight is just getting started. God Bless America.

If Democrats Had Their Way…

detroit

If Democrats Had Their Way…

Remember New Coke? It was a dismal failure and the company scrapped it. How about three slice toasters? They were supposed to be the rage once, too. But nobody bought them and they disappeared into the dustbin of history.

That’s how life works in the private sector. If people don’t buy and the product doesn’t deliver, it disappears. Companies and individuals are forced to develop winning strategies in order to survive. If not, they perish.

The policies of the Democratic Party are not like that. The policies of the Democratic Party — high taxes, exorbitant union contracts and pensions, excessive government regulation, gun control, dysfunctional schools, etc. — continue to produce one failed program after another, yet they are fully supported by an average of 52% of the voting public. If they operated in the private sector, they would be forced into bankruptcy. However, because they are funded by our tax dollars, they have a never-ending spigot of cash flowing into their coffers. In essence, they are rewarded for failing.

Detroit is a city that has been under complete Democratic control for over forty years. And when I say complete, I mean complete. Every official, every policy, every decision affecting Detroit has come 100% from the Democratic Party and their supporters. The result? Bankruptcy.

Detroit is $2.5 billion in debt. That’s billion, with a “b”. Thousands of homes, buildings, and businesses are vacant and abandoned, and two thirds of the city’s street lights do not work.

Detroit is America’s most dangerous city with a violent crime rate five times higher than the national average. It’s the murder capital of the country, and — because it’s under Democratic control — Detroit has strict gun control laws.

In short, Detroit is a hellhole. A man-made, Democratic-Party-created hellhole. And it’s exactly what all of America would look like if Democrats had their way.

Detroit is not an aberration. It is a direct result of Democratic leadership and how applying the principles of the Democratic Party actually play out in real life. It’s as simple as 1 + 1 = 2. You do this action, you get this result.

If Detroit shows all of us the natural consequence of what happens when the Democratic Party gets its way, why do people support it? Why do tens of millions of Americans continue to vote for Democrats? The answer, I believe, consists of five distinct elements within the Democratic Party.

In the first group are the hardcore socialists and communists that form the leadership and financial backing of the Democratic Party. These are the folks that actually hate America and want to destroy it. (See https://fellowshipoftheminds.com/2014/03/22/99549/). They are the corrupt union leaders, the financial donors, the advisors, the radical college professors and teachers, the leaders of various “equality” groups and causes, the militant feminists, the Islamic extremists, education officials and administrators, and the actual politicians themselves. I estimate their numbers to comprise 5% of less of the Democratic Party.

To this first group, Detroit is a shining example of how they would like all of America to be. Many of them are atheists, or outright satanists, and they hate not only America, but also Christianity, because they see Christians as the primary roadblock that keeps them from turning America into a Communist dictatorship. Death, murder, kidnapping, and rape mean nothing to them if it helps to accomplish their objective.

The second group is big business and union members. The majority of those in this group do not hate America, however they can develop intense hatred toward any individual or group that threatens their current financial status. They support the Democratic Party because it pays.

For big business, that means bailouts, favorable loans, taxpayer subsidies, and government regulation to create monopolies and eliminate competition. You know who I’m talking about: Hollywood, Facebook, Yahoo, Apple, GE, Wall Street, owners of professional sports teams, etc.

For union members, it means maintaining their high salaries, pensions, insurance, and paid holidays. You’ll find many teachers in this group. All together, this second group comprises about 20% of the Democratic Party. They vote for their own personal gain, regardless of how much it hurts their country or their fellow citizens.

The third group consists of the media. I estimate them to comprise 5% or less of the Democratic Party. Like the first group, many of them are hardcore socialists and communists who also hate America, but their hatred is cloaked with a thinly disguised intellectual disdain. They consider themselves smarter than everyone else. Though they are intelligent, they suffer from a total lack of wisdom. If their intellectual superiority is threatened, they can revert to most violent and animalistic of natures, all condoned through intellectual justification.

This third group — the media — do everything they can to obscure reality in order to confuse and indoctrinate the fourth group: Useful Idiots.

“Useful idiot” sounds like a harsh term, but it was actually coined by the Left to describe many of their followers. (See https://fellowshipoftheminds.com/2013/12/29/are-you-a-useful-idiot/)

It saddens me to say that I have many friends, acquaintances, and co-workers in this group. They are nice people. Many of them would give you the shirt of their back, or rush to your aid at the first sign of an emergency. Sadly, they just don’t know very much about history or politics.

Useful idiots have been dumbed down at school and at home. Now in their 20’s, 30’s, 40’s, 50’s, 60’s, and beyond, they continue to believe everything they’re told by the mainstream media. They have been exposed to alternate information only in the form of ridicule. Many of them are so busy working, earning a living, raising families, paying bills, and looking for love that they just don’t have time to read and educate themselves.

I was in the position of not having time to read myself until I was laid off a couple of years ago and actually had time to research what was happening in the country. That’s when I discovered this site, Commieblaster, Moral Matters, and many more.

In this group you will also find many females who have been taught to accept abortion and feminism, and many males who accept abortion and feminism as a means to seduce and sleep with the aforementioned females. (See https://fellowshipoftheminds.com/2013/11/15/an-open-letter-to-obama-supporters/) I estimate useful idiots to comprise a full 40% of the Democratic Party.

The fifth and final leg of the Democratic Party are what I call Useful Leeches. This group consists of all races and ages, and they are far worse than the useful idiots. Useful idiots actually mean well. Useful leeches are angry, bitter, resentful, and believe that the world owes them a living. They survive on government handouts: food stamps, welfare, Section-8, disability, etc., and they hate themselves because of it.

Useful leeches have no desire to improve their station in life and would love nothing better than to drag the entire country down to their level of misery and poverty. Not surprisingly, this group tends to be extremely racist and intolerant. They live in a constant state of fear.

The hardcore socialists and communists of the first and third groups love useful leeches, because they are so easily manipulated. They make excellent shock troops, and can be employed to strike fear among the population and silence critics on the right.

If there’s any hope of saving our country, it lies with the useful idiots. With extremely few exceptions, the members of the other groups are not going to change. Useful idiots CAN change if they are approached and educated correctly. A friendly conversation here, a book or article passed along there, and slowly but surely the tide can be turned.

If we can begin to sway even 5-10% of the useful idiots, we can tilt the balance of our country back to its Constitutional foundation. We can’t look to others to do this. The work is ours. The future of our country rests with us.

(Thanks to my friend, Alan, for suggesting this topic.)

More On Tim Tebow

Tim Tebow

Traildust recently posted a great article on Tim Tebow:

https://fellowshipoftheminds.com/2014/02/06/they-forgot-about-gods-quarterback/

Here’s more:

Prior to the 2013 season, in which he did not play, Tim Tebow had an 8-6 record as a starter. His winning percentage of .571 was higher than half of the starting quarterbacks in the league at the time, including Carson Palmer (.446), Kevin Kolb (.428), Cam Newton (.406), Jay Cutler (.548), Brandon Weeden (.333), Blaine Gabbert (.217), Alex Smith (.513), Ryan Tannehill (.437), Christian Ponder (.461), Mark Sanchez (.532), Matt Flynn (.500), Sam Bradford (.369), Josh Freeman (.428), and Jake Locker (.363).

Tebow’s postseason winning percentage of .500 was higher than the postseason winning percentages of Peyton Manning (.450), Tony Romo (.250), Matt Ryan (.200), Christian Ponder (.000), Matthew Stafford (.000), Robert Griffin III (.000), Andy Dalton (.000), Philip Rivers (.428), and many others.

With its satanic half time rituals, its support of gun control, the allowance of TSA agents and drones at games, its support of United Way, and many other acts, it’s obvious that the No Fun League has fully embraced NWO Satanism. As a dedicated Christian, Tim Tebow is a threat to the league’s agenda and had to be removed at all costs, regardless of his winning stats.

I doubt if less than five coaches and players are aware of the league’s true agenda, which is to promote NWO Satanism while making as much money as possible. The league, which once represented everything good about America, now represents everything reprehensible and evil about America’s enemies. And they are laughing all the way to the bank.

More Evidence of FAKE Sandy Hook Parents

This video shows another in a long line of alleged Sandy Hook parents smiling and joyful after the alleged brutal slayings of their five and six-year-old children.
This interview was given only one month after the alleged incident occurred. Note how the alleged mother shakes her head side-to-side the entire time she is talking, as if to say, “No, no.” This is a telltale sign of a liar.
This video begins with a five minute talk by its creator and the sound is very faint, so turn your volume up.

More “Transparency” From the Comrade Dear Ruler: ATF Looking to Block F&F Whistleblower’s Book

Via washingtontimes.com:

ATF tries to block whistleblowing agent’s ‘Fast and Furious’ book

1st Amendment battle over gun-walking expose

By John Solomon The Washington Times  Sunday, October 6, 2013

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is blocking the main whistleblower in the Fast and Furious case from publishing a book for pay, claiming his retelling of the Mexico “gun-walking” scandal will hurt morale inside the embattled law enforcement agency, according to documents obtained by The Washington Times.

ATF’s dispute with Special Agent John Dodson is setting up a First Amendment showdown that is poised to bring together liberal groups like the American Civil Liberties Union and conservatives in Congress who have championed Mr. Dodson’s protection as a whistleblower.

The ACLU is slated to become involved in the case Monday, informing ATF it is representing Mr. Dodson and filing a formal protest to the decision to reject his request to publish the already written book, sources told The Times, speaking only on the condition of anonymity.

The battle also could have repercussions on Capitol Hill, where the two lead investigators who helped uncover the Fast and Furious scandal, Sen. Chuck Grassley, Iowa Republican, and House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell E. Issa, Calif. Republican, had written a foreword to the book, the sources said.

You can read the entire Washington Times article here.

Last time I checked, alcohol, tobacco, and firearms are all legal products in this country.

Why do we need an agency of armed government goons to even be involved in any of these?

It’s time the ATF was disbanded, as there is absolutely no constitutional basis for its existence.

-And the ATF agents involved in Fast and Furious need to be arrested and prosecuted to the fullest extent possible.

National Park Service Goon Shoots Unarmed Man on Houseboat

Park_Service_Flag_Blue

AKA: Federal Goons with Guns

Author’s Note: For future reference, I will be referring to any and all federal agencies that I feel have no business being armed with anything beyond a radio as being federal goons with guns. If that offends you, tough grits.

-And before you start telling me about the dangers of bears and snakes, you should know I spent half of my 30 years in the land surveying bizz all over the eastern half of the country – most of it in the woods, and the only two times I felt threatened was when I was shot at by a couple of irate (human) property owners.

That’s when it is time to call for-real local law-enforcement officers, not glorified feds who are probably ex-Peace Corps types, or worse –  PETA rejects, who are poorly trained and have no business being armed in the first place.

Lake Roosevelt park ranger shot man near son, family says

Kip Hill The Spokesman-Review

The Kettle Falls man shot by park rangers at a campground over the weekend had been standing alongside his 9-year-old son when the bullet tore into his torso, family members say.

Few details of the shooting have been disclosed by the National Park Service or investigators with the Washington State Patrol.

The shooting injured Casey Hartinger, 43. It happened after a Saturday night confrontation between rangers and another man who owns a houseboat that was moored at the Kettle River Campground within the Lake Roosevelt National Recreation Area.

At least one park ranger boarded the houseboat in response to a noise complaint.

It’s unclear what prompted a ranger to open fire on Hartinger, 43, who was released Monday from Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center, apparently without being arrested.

However, the owner of the houseboat, 41-year-old Michael J. Sublie, faces possible federal charges of interfering with law enforcement.

Court documents describe a scuffle that included Sublie shoving a park ranger off the gangplank that stretched from the houseboat to the shore.

Hartinger and Sublie both live in Kettle Falls and are friends. Family members of both men said Monday that neither of the men was armed at the time.

Court documents include allegations that Sublie was uncooperative when rangers approached him. He refused to turn down the music blaring from his boat at about 10:30 p.m. – some 30 minutes after quiet hours had begun. And he refused to identify himself or remove his hands from his pockets as a ranger requested. Sublie was described by rangers as having “a heavy odor of alcoholic beverage” on his breath and at one point yelled obscenities at the rangers as he demanded they leave his boat.

A ranger tried several times to detain Sublie, but each time Sublie is accused of violently raising his arms to resist.

After several failed attempts to detain Sublie, the ranger was pushed backward off the gangplank, according to records.

Court filings do not mention when shots were fired or by whom. The two rangers who responded to the call were identified only by their initials.

Bob Hartinger, the father of the man who was shot, said he’d received word in a phone call from his 13-year-old granddaughter who was on the boat with her 9-year-old brother that Casey Hartinger had been wounded. The 9-year-old stood near his dad when the shots were fired, Bob Hartinger said.

“If the bullet hadn’t hit my son, it would have hit (my grandson) in the head,” he said.

You will find the rest at this link.

This time around, I think it will be stopping at Tyranny

I guess we should be thankful that no one’s dog was shot, nor that their 98 year-old wheelchair-bound grandmother was tasered – at least not this time.

Scuffle or not, there was no reason to shoot an unarmed man, no matter how drunk and belligerent he was at the time.

There are ways to subdue such people that do not involve attempted deadly force that can be employed by law enforcement officers that are properly trained and thus qualified.

And I have the same question Doc E had (even though she did not quite put it this way): WTF is up with this?

We are currently very late 1930s Germany – and very close to becoming something just as bad – if not ultimately worse.

Americans better pull their heads out of their rectums and start paying attention – and that right soon, because we are staring nose-to-nose eyeball-to-eyeball at our demise.

Iraq war veteran plans armed march on Washington on July 4

patriotism
A radio host and Iraq war veteran will be leading an armed march on Washington, D.C., this July 4, Independence Day, to put government on notice that we won’t be intimidated.

Adam Kokesh

Adam Kokesh


He is Adam Kokesh, 31, a Libertarian activist and talk radio host. Kokesh was a corporal in the United States Marine Corps Reserve and a veteran of the Iraq War, serving in Falujah in 2004 as a liaison between the U.S. military and Iraqi civilians as a member of the 3rd Civil Affairs Group. He is an outspoken opponent of the U.S. military intervention in Iraq.
On September 2, 2008, Kokesh spoke at Ron Paul’s Rally for the Republic in St. Paul, Minnesota, where he stated, “While it is our responsibility now to resist tyranny civilly, while we still can, there may come a time when we will say to the powers that be, be it with your blood or ours we have come to water the tree of liberty … who will stand with me?”
Gregory Gwyn-Williams Jr. reports for CNSNews, May 5, 2013, that Kokesh launched the planned armed march as a group on Facebook, the “Open Carry March on Washington,” and hopes to get 1,000 supporters to march into the nation’s capital with loaded rifles.
The group plans to meet at 9 a.m., July 4, 2013, at Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia. From there, they will march across the Memorial Bridge into Washington, D.C. and continue down Independence Avenue.
While Virginia permits open carry, Washington, D.C. does not issue any permit/licenses to carry a firearm.
Washington crosses the Delaware
The Facebook page states that the event, though armed, is non-violent and if the group is met with physical resistance, they will turn back:
“This is an act of civil disobedience, not a permitted event. We will march with rifles loaded & slung across our backs to put the government on notice that we will not be intimidated & cower in submission to tyranny.
There’s a remote chance that there will be violence as there has been from government before, and I think it should be clear that if anyone involved in this event is approached respectfully by agents of the state, they will submit to arrest without resisting.”
The event is open to unarmed supporters, journalists and welcomes law enforcement officers to join.

The City of Knoxville applied for a federal grant from Housing and Urban Development (HUD), Office of Sustainable Housing and Communities, while Governor Bill Haslam, a Republican, was Mayor of the City of Knoxville. Link

These grants, part of the Obama administration’s Partnership for Sustainable Communities, bring together HUD, Department of Energy, the Department of Transportation, and the Environmental Protection Agency. Two types of grants were awarded — those to update existing plans, and those to develop sustainability plans from scratch.  Knoxville’s Plan ET is from scratch and Knoxville received $4.32 million from the HUD grant.  Another $2.5 million came from a Consortium of partners which includes non-profits.  (As an aside, the Knoxville Utilities Board, KUB, received a $3.6 million grant from DOE, Department of Energy, to install smart meters.)
The Architectural firm, Wallace, Roberts, and Todd, (WRT), headquartered in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, is the Plan ET partner chosen to head the forums.  They were paid $1.7 million to accomplish the pre-determined outcome of these forums through facilitation of the Delphi Technique.  The Metropolitan Planning Commission (MPC), another unelected commission, has $1,591,000 of the HUD/Plan ET monies in their account as of June 14, 2012.  Another $100,000 was given to the MPC for the costs of the forum locations and refreshments.  This leaves approximately $3.4 million in the City of Knoxville’s coffers, it is believed, since they are the ones who’d applied for the grant.
Governor Haslam has proven he is an EPA, Agenda 21 proponent, not only by allowing the application for the Smart Growth grant from HUD, but by his actions since becoming governor. Haslam has also refused to sign a resolution against Agenda 21, even though a Resolution has absolutely no binding power of law.  Link
In my previous article on NewsWithViews, “Mind Control and Smart Growth,” I explained that Knoxville is also a dues paying member of ICLEI since 2007.  From Tom DeWeese’s article, “Agenda 21 in One Easy Lesson” on ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability (formally, International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives): “Communities pay ICLEI dues to provide “local” community plans, software, training, etc. Additional groups include American Planning Association, The Renaissance Planning Group, International City/ County Management Group, aided by US Mayors Conference, National Governors Association, National League of Cities, National Association of County Administrators and many more private organizations and official government agencies. The Foundation and government grants drive the process.”
On Thursday, March 21st, 2013, three of us attended a meeting of the Farragut City Council. About 20 people were in the audience at this meeting. The 2010 Census recorded 20,689 population for Farragut, which is part of Knox County.  Knox County is the largest of the five counties in Plan ET Smart Growth with a population of nearly 500,000.  Total population in the five county “region” of Plan ET is 700,000.  Obviously, very few people in the area go to their council or commission meetings, and this is where the damage is done to our freedoms.
The first person that spoke was Matt Barney, the developer of 52 acres, and he kept expounding on the Green Spaces they were developing, with fruit trees and gardens. He stated his whole development was a “green community.”  According to the zoning laws of the Town of Farragut, 35% of any development now has to be given over to green space.  For this developer, that means 17.74 acres of this 52 acre development.  It was originally 96 home sites, but was reworked to be 49 home sites for more “green space.”
So, developers in the Town of Farragut must give up more than one-third of their property for “green space” rather than building homes on all of the property they’ve purchased.  How would you like to buy a piece of land you intend to use, but then be told by the local politicians that more than one-third of that land cannot be used for the purpose you desire.  Just a little fascism sprinkled in for enjoyment.
Check out Farragut’s Planning Division.  The Division has their own Vision 2025 Smart Growth project, and they’ve already implemented bike lanes in their community.  They even have a Code Enforcement Division that reviews all commercial, office, and residential construction plans, grants permits and sets fees, does inspections and licensing and fees for plumbing/gas and mechanical contractors.  None of this sounds onerous.  However, once Smart Growth is part of the City’s plan, all of this can become draconian in nature. It is happening via zoning and codes by these council and commission members. Remember, this is a very small community of 21,000 people.  Yet, here is Smart Growth, which is in nearly every small town and city in the country.
After the council meeting, there were perhaps a dozen people left.  A presentation by the Knoxville Metropolitan Planning Commission regarding Plan ET was scheduled for the council members.  Three of the ten members left, so the presentation was given to the seven who were left.
Jeff Welch, Knoxville’s Regional Transportation Planning Organization Director, was there along with Metropolitan Planning Commission‘s, GIS (Geographical Information Services) manager, Tim Kuhn, to present the results of the Plan ET Smart Growth project thus far.  (GIS is the mapping of all the counties’ properties.) Tim Kuhn actually used the Delphi Technique on the Town Council members, just as was done at the Plan ET Forums we attended in 2012.  The council members were asked questions about the community, but were provided only multiple choice answers from which to choose. This was to decide what was important to them for their community and how it should “grow” in the next 30 years.  Most of the people on the council will not even be here in 30 years.  During his presentation, Tim Kuhn made the statement that 500 people in this five county “region” had given their “input” at the two series of Plan ET forums regarding what was important to them for their communities in the next 28 years.  So, from a population of 700,000 people, 500 people are deciding our future, without an election, by unelected members of the Metropolitan Planning Commission, and the architectural firm, skilled in the Delphi Technique, (video) who was hired to help them with the predetermined outcome.  Link
At the 2012 series forums, where the “public” was invited, the majority of those present were local government employees who had a vested interest in seeing these Smart Growth plans accomplished.  If those of us against UN Agenda 21 Smart Growth had not attended the forums, the only people giving “community input” would be the invited government shills.  Since they have a vested interest in Smart Growth they shouldn’t have even been voting at these Delphi meetings as it is a conflict of interest!  At one meeting, one of the invitees admitted she was a paid participant.  Of course!  They were all paid to go because they worked for the city, the county, the university, Oak Ridge National Laboratories, etc.
The Farragut Council was then told the results, all of which were scripted for their pre-determined outcome via their use of Rand Corporation’s mind-control Delphi Technique.  RAND developed the Delphi method in the 1950s for the U.S. Department of Defense.  It was originally intended for use as a psychological weapon during the cold war.  Remember, these people from the MPC and Wallace, Roberts, and Todd, also went into schools and used this same “exercise” on children who are not taxpayers!
Kuhn stated the community challenges were, lack of good jobs, highways and side roads needing repair, more public transportation, empty commercial buildings, improved education, protection of natural resources, and drug abuse problems.  He asked the Council members to rate these problems in how the region responds to same.  Kuhn stated the desire was to get people closer to their jobs, more transportation and transit services, more housing for the elderly in urban areas, and to contain “sprawl.”  Instead of population expanding further out in rural communities, he suggested their “results” from the forums stated this needs to be changed.
The entire meeting continued with how the “region” would grow in the next 30 years. Kuhn then discussed the different “regional growth” concepts and went through several different scenarios. He said this is “how we’ll grow and what the range of alternatives will be.”  He explained that these concepts came from the 500 people questioned in the Plan ET forums and then repeated almost word for word what is on the Plan ET website.
1.  The first “Trend concept” is “Business as Usual” – the way East Tennessee been growing for the last 30 years.  Kuhn states this is a “kind of grow out” in suburban areas pattern, following major roads, mostly suburban apartments and suburban single family home neighborhoods, and private vehicles are needed.
2.  The “Spread Out” or “Grow Everywhere” pattern – closer to nature, more rural, embraces that growth can occur everywhere in the “region.”  Growth occurs mainly in suburban and rural areas, with minimal growth in the region’s cities and towns. New development is car-friendly and grows primarily into undeveloped areas. New homes are largely developed in suburban neighborhoods and on rural lots that were once farmland and open space.
3.  Corridors – growing along the regions highways, interstates, and major roads, in more of a linear form, keeping employment in the same areas as shopping, and outside of these areas is suburban housing, different types of subdivisions, and apartments.
4. Centers Concept – The centers concept focuses on growing the region’s cities and towns, as well as creating identity in today’s suburban places by redeveloping aging commercial areas with both businesses, homes and adjacent neighborhoods that are a short walk or bike ride away.  Regional transit connects the centers and local transit is improved.
5. Cities and Towns Concept – Literally using the cities and towns in the regions where most of the growth would occur in a reinvestment and redevelopment of the cities and towns.  Using some of the corridor concept to have more compact shopping, employment, neighborhood development, and other forms of housing which is smaller and within closer proximity to business/shopping/etc.  Also bigger investments in local transit with high frequency transit moving throughout the most populace parts of the region.  Creating an environment that is supportive of a variety of ways of getting around (car, bike, walk and transit).
All the above scenarios sound pretty innocuous, don’t they?  The final plans however, intend the elimination of private vehicles and travel to be only by local transit, bike, or your feet, and you will live in high density housing.  How do they accomplish these goals?  Zoning, annexation (Babelay Farm in Knoxville), codes, taxes, etc. ad nauseum, are all accomplished through your local county commission, and city or town councils.  The local planning commission people are unelected…they are appointed.  In Knoxville, the City appoints seven members and the County appoints 8 members to the Metropolitan Planning Commission.  We cannot get rid of them because they are not elected!
The propaganda campaign to keep us in the dark starts with the American Planning Association (APA). From page 34, of APA’s, “The Planning Commissioner’s Guide,” A number of communities across the country have integrated sustainability into their Comprehensive Plans.  Examples include:

Here are some links to Smart Growth high density housing in Issaquah, WAPasadena, CA;  High Density housing developed by the Puget Sound Cottage Housing Development Zoning Ordinance; Harrison, NJDel Mar, CA; Pasadena, CA; and dozens more.

How many people are attending their local council and commission meetings?  This is where it all happens people! Are you sitting at home thinking someone else will go and protect your rights?  Are you thinking it won’t happen in your lifetime? It’s here!  It’s happening NOW!  If you want to retain your God given liberties, you’d better get off your fannies and get down to these meetings, and find out what’s going on in your community.  Familiarize yourself!
Like the developer who had to give up 35% of his purchased land for “green space,” how much land are you willing to give up that already belongs to you?  Guess what?!  They’re going to incrementally take all your land, all 100% of it, and it’s happening right now!  Are you ready to give up everything you’ve worked for all your lives? It will be too late when you are marched off to the FEMA camps.  Either you put forth some effort now, just as our founders did then, or you’re just as guilty as the perpetrators.
