|The Unasked Question–Russia’s Role?
Search Engine Friendly URL: http://www.patriotfreedom.org/news_20090907_8122/the_unasked_questionrussias_role/
But the question really isn’t JUST about these two pieces of information. Consider WHY we are having this conversation in the first place. What is it that is driving this administration to push so quickly into a final “endgame” scenario of American citizens under martial law at all, regardless of the reason?
Do they know something that we don’t know? Seems like since last September, even the sleepiest among us should be wondering how we have gone through: 1) appropriating $9 Trillion (+/- $5 Trillion oor so depending on whatever figures you use) without anyone accounting for it; 2) appropriating a “budget larger than the military’s” for a civilian security force; and 3) putting a national healthcare plan into legislation with hardly any open discussion in the Congress at all? We have only heard that we MUST ACT NOW or else? Or else what?
You can’t tell us there is any way this additional spending (which seems to all be going to the Federal Government to pay for layers of government spending, thereby usurping the State and County legislative bodies) is going to turn around the economy. We can see it is only making things worse all the while the Federal Government seems to be talking more and more about internal threats to our country rather than external: homegrown terrorists, gun owners, vets, and now we’re supposed to believe the story that they are preparing for “martial law” in the event of a large natural disaster or national emergency?
What is it they know that we don’t? That is the “unasked question.” A prudent person might try to take in more details in order to answer that question for themselves. What else is going on out there that COULD add further clarity or resolution to the question of this gear-up for martial law?
Hurricane season is upon us, but most states in the wake of hurricanes have managed better than the Federal government to address our needs for such things…unless they “know” of a major storm coming, or that will be coming. There is sufficient evidence to lead one to believe our government, and others, may have ways to create these types of storms, according to the History Channel.
Or what about a nuclear weapon or even just an Electro Magnetic Pulse? This could be delivered by any number of countries now. But under what circumstances might this occur? There is one major threat that seems never to go completely away: Israel striking Iran’s nuclear weapons facilities. This is a grave threat indeed if Israel decides to do it. At the time they drop a bomb on Iran, the US is immediately at war with Russia and China. Hmmm…what significance does that have? Well, Russia already has been sending their submarines in close proximity to our East Coast
. This hasn’t happened since the Cold War ended.
Why would this new administration, which does not appear to be friendly towards Israel, not just end the treaty with Israel? A good analyst might ask themselves, “What might this administration gain if they actually encouraged this behavior from Russia?”
Might this Russian presence be useful in some other way? It doesn’t seem as if we have done much about it. Let’s just suppose for a second that they WANTED the Russian subs to be there. What benefit might that be?
When taken into the context of the very strange, fast, massive shakedown of our treasury, one must wonder if there has been some threat hanging over the heads of folks in our own government (maybe as a way to keep the bureaucrats that wield more power and have no allegiance to any ONE president in line). Were some of these folks forced to go along with something they might not have wanted to? Could a minority of political folks, using outside assistance, have forced the rest of Washington into an agenda they would not have supported otherwise? Of course, it is helpful if they can get folks to BELIEVE they represent the majority. That would just require help from the media.
But what does it take to get a government to virtually self-destruct itself by printing and spending trillions of dollars so carelessly? Probably someone/some group that doesn’t much want the country to succeed. However, if they really only represented a minority of the folks, they would need some way to control their behavior; some big threat to keep them all too afraid to break free.
Remember those Russian nuclear subs? Not too long ago, we could not have imagined America accepting that scenario at all. But this administration has not made one peep about it? Why has nothing been said about them (or ANYTHING about ANY THREAT to our national security from outside forces)? Why is that? Could it be because this new administration IS the outside force. Because THEY are ALIGNED with the outside force?
Could those Russian subs be there to keep Congress towing the line?
To keep our bureaucrats towing the line? To keep some in our military and law enforcement towing the line? Is this the strongarm that a “Government of the Media”
would require in order to “enforce” their own policies?
So, what is possible from an administration that seems to have control of FEMA, DHS and other branches of “government” while working with foreign entities hostile to us? Well… virtually anything.
Are we under seige without realizing it? Our fore and aft may be compromised already. How would we know?
Do you finally get what this “martial law” is all about? It is not about a natural disaster or a natural emergency, but rather a well-orchestrated plan to take over America to the fullest extent possible. This is a “velvet” WAR. They are dismantling the Constitution, planning to take our guns, use bioweapons on us, use illegal aliens, gang members, unions, and other disgruntled parties against us.
While they have not called it that, it is what it surely is. There is no other way to explain how all these pieces fit together otherwise. Organize yourselves in your neighborhoods, town, cities, counties. Each area may see different threats, so we must do our best to prepare locally. The “endgame” is on. We don’t know how the picture could be any clearer.
Pray about it. Ask God for guidance, wisdom and insight. But see the handwriting on the wall. If you don’t, there is little help for you in the days, weeks and months ahead.

We are experiencing a hostile takeover of America....
America is the last hold-out of freedom in the world;
all other nations have fallen to communism, socialism and fascism.
By: The Fading American Dream
Are we are experiencing a hostile takeover of America, geared specifically
towards pushing us forcefully into communism and fascism?
Obama has appointed the most radical individuals our government has ever been exposed to:
Van Jones , Obama’s Green Jobs Czar, is an openly confessed radical communist and black nationalist.
He has been jailed several times for radical political behavior, and has admitted that he was
radicalized in jail after being exposed to black communist, anarchist radicals.
John Holdren , Obama’s Science Czar, is a eugenicist that has laid out plans in his book, Ecoscience,
for forced sterilizations and forced abortions as a means of population control.
He stated that population control laws could be constitutional, under the right perception.
Holdren proposed such atrocities as forced adoptions for babies born out of wed-lock,
and that the forced sterilization of women would be easier to enforce than men.
Nice guy? He’s our new Science Czar.
Cass Sustein, Obama’s “Regulatory Czar, is an equally insane radical.
What are some of Sustein’s notions of regulation?
He has publicly stated a desire to impose regulatory agendas
such as outlawing sport hunting, giving animals the legal right to file lawsuits
and using government regulations to phase out meat consumption.
Sustein’s favored method of instituting regulations such as these is laid out in a book he co-authored,
Nudge: Improving Decisions about Health, Wealth, and Happiness (Yale University Press, 2008). Nudge.
He will nudge us into life he wants us to live, one nudge at a time. This is called incrementalism.
Harold Koh, Obama’s pick as Legal Advisor to the State Department, is a self-described trans-nationalist
who has openly stated that judges should interpret the Constitution according to other nations’ legal “norms,”
Sharia law could apply to disputes in US courts, and the United States constitutes
an “axis of disobedience” along with North Korea and Saddam-era Iraq.
Koh has shown not only an open disregard for the Second Amendment;
he despises it. In a paper entitled “A world drowning in guns,” Koh maintains that a civil society
cannot exist with broad gun ownership: “Guns kill civil society,” he said.(GOA)
Sonia Sotomayor, Obama’s first Supreme Court nomination and now confirmed Justice,
is as anti-Second Amendment as they come. Sotomayor “is one of only three federal appellate judges
in America to issue a court opinion saying that the Second Amendment does not apply to states,
” warns Former Ohio secretary of state and gubernatorial candidate Ken Blackwell.(WW)
Does Sotomayor believe that the American people have a constitutional right
to keep and bear arms and to self-defense?
No. In fact, when asked this question during nominee hearings, she absolutely refused
to answer the question. She never did answer. She was confirmed anyway.
Even Obama’s Attorney General, Eric Holder is the most anti-gun radical
we have ever seen in power.
Now, Congress and the Senate are working to give him the exclusive, unchecked authority
to take guns away from Americans without any due process of law. (H.R. 2159, S 1307, and H.R. 2401)
Imagine, the most anti-gun person ever to hold an office having the sole authority
to revoke the Second Amendment rights of individuals without due process!
It can and will happen if YOU do not stand up and say ENOUGH!
People, America is in dire jeopardy of being lost forever.
Patriots are being labeled racists; racists are being labeled patriots.
A hostile takeover HAS OCCURRED!
The people who now execute the power of the Executive Branch of our government
are radical and tyrannical.
Call, email and write your representatives constantly about these bills
and these issues.
Get out and protest.
Attend tea parties.
Attend town halls.
Voice your opposition to these tyrants and their unConstitutional legislation.
America is the last hold-out of freedom in the world; all other nations
have fallen to communism, socialism and fascism.
LET’S STOP THEM NOW

The Founders' Amazing Monetary System
Would Solve Today's Monetary Crisis
The American Founding Fathers originally intended a monetary system quite different from the one we have now. In fact, they had hoped to prevent many of the fiscal and economic problems with which our present monetary system is afflicted. Their system relied on four major principles.
The people's representatives in congress must develop and carefully control the money system and make sure the amount of money remains stable. That's why the Constitution gives this power exclusively to Congress in Article I, Section 8
To be honest, a medium of exchange must have "intrinsic" value or in other words it must have value in and of itself. The Founders knew only money based on gold and silver would provide this value.
There must be no fractional reserve banking. As Jefferson said: "No one has a natural right to the trade of a money lender but he who has the money to lend."
In order to prevent undue pressure on the demand for money and to make sure federal officials did not have so much power they could be "bought off", the Founders clearly said that money from the federal treasury can be spent only for the 20 powers listed in Article I, Section 8, and then only if such expenditures were for the "general welfare" or in other words if such expenditures benefited the whole nation and not specific groups, locations, or businesses.
Let's look at what happened to each of these founding principles.
The Big Bankers Take Control of United States Monetary System
With the adoption of the Constitution, Jefferson hoped the nation would go back to pre-revolution days with government issuing its money based on a precious metal standard. The treasury could then set up branches for loaning money and all payments of interest would go to the general funds of the nation, thereby greatly reducing the required taxes.
The first of Jefferson's hopes was realized when the gold and silver standard was explicitly written into the Constitution. However, his second hope was shattered when Alexander Hamilton was appointed Secretary of the Treasury and came up with a plan to monetize the nation's mammoth war debt by issuing bonds and selling them to private banks. He also urged the President and Congress to allow these bankers to temporarily (for twenty years) establish a private bank in the name of the United States and be responsible for issuing money , controlling the amount, fixing its value, and financing the United States government. It was this last factor which appealed to President Washington.
There was, of course, no Constitutional authority to have the federal government set up such a bank, but Hamilton persuasively argued a theory of "implied powers" which has seriously damaged the whole concept of "limited" government ever since. Although the argument was sufficiently strong to impress Congress, Washington was uncomfortable with it. In fact, he was actually contemplating a veto of the banking act when Hamilton drew him aside and filled his mind with such glowing promises of stability and prosperity under this "temporary" expediency, that Washington finally overrode his professional instinct as one of America's most successful farmers and signed the bill. Jefferson later accused Hamilton of complicating the whole scheme with such elaborate trappings that it had confused the President. It turned out that Washington's original instinctive anxieties concerning the dangers of the bill were fully justified.
Over the decades since then and through a series of man-made boom and bust cycles, the powerful banking lobby, with the behind-the-scenes pressure from Wall Street, has persuaded Congress to give them permanent authority over our money and credit in violation of the Constitution and the express will of the people. This power was permanently consolidated in 1913 into the misnamed Federal Reserve System, which is neither "federal" nor "reserve." Time and time again the big bankers who privately control the Federal Reserve have shown elected officials in Washington that indeed they are the ones that have the real power in our land.
The very basis which gives money its value is destroyed
Anything of value requires the input of labor. If it requires little or no labor, the item becomes worthless. Historically, gold and silver have always been in demand and have always required labor to accumulate, therefore giving sustainable value. Because of its universal demand it is a perfect medium of exchange.
As do-good politicians desired to expend large sums of money for programs not authorized in the Constitution, they ran up against a major problem. If a program would cost, say $100 million of new money, then that much gold and silver would have to be deposited to back up the new money. This requirement provided a real restraint and roadblock to huge give-away programs, such as FDR's New Deal. So what did he do? In 1933, he signed an executive order taking the backing of gold from our dollars! LBJ did the same thing to fund his Great Society in 1964 and took the redeemability of silver off of our dollars. Now, not having to put up the gold and silver, the politicians could merely crank up the printing presses and distribute money at will. This, of course, came with the reminder to the welfare recipients to remember these politicians at the next election.
The Origin of Fractional Reserve Banking
or Making Money out of Nothing
Dr. W. Cleon Skousen explains how banks came to "make money out of nothing" and how they hooked the United States Government into the deal:
"We call this magic formula 'fractional banking' or 'reserve banking.' Here is how it all began and how it works.
"Several hundred years ago the goldsmiths of Europe were under the necessity of building substantial vaults for their precious metals. As one might have expected, it wasn't long before many others asked to leave their gold in these vaults for safekeeping. The goldsmiths consented and gave each depositor a certificate which could be used to reclaim the precious metal at any time. These certificates were therefore considered 'as good as gold' and soon circulated in business channels as though they were gold.
"In fact, they were so much more convenient to handle than gold that very few depositors ever went back to the goldsmiths except to make more deposits.
"In very short order it became entirely apparent to the goldsmiths that since only a small percentage of the depositors came back for their gold, the goldsmiths only had to keep enough on hand as a 'reserve' to satisfy those who did come back. Realizing this, the goldsmiths decided they could safely issue considerably more gold certificates than the amount of gold 'on deposit.' By this set of fortuitous circumstances they had discovered how a shrewd goldsmith could issue certificates on gold he didn't have and thus become super rich by 'making money out of nothing.' Furthermore, these spurious certificates could be used to buy up all kinds of tangible property or they could be loaned out on interest. Here indeed was the royal road to wealth.
"Of course, it was important to keep a good "reserve" for those who did want to cash in their certificates, but this ordinarily involved only a fraction of the certificates in circulation. Thus 'fractional banking' was born.
Fractional Bankers Do Something Ordinary People Cannot Do
"It will be immediately realized that 'making money out of nothing' is selling something the money managers don't really have.
"We know it is considered criminal fraud if a person sells a house he doesn't own. The same thing is true if he sells something which doesn't exist and never will exist. Then how do the bankers get away with it? The answer is rather amazing.
"Apparently the bankers saw the danger of their position and decided to protect themselves by getting the government in on the deal. They reasoned that the government certainly wouldn't prosecute the bankers if the government itself were getting a significant benefit from the operation. So this is what the bankers set out to achieve, first in Europe and more recently in the United States.
"The trick was to create a privately owned bank for the whole country. By cutting the government in on the benefits, it became feasible to call the bank by a name which implied that it was an official branch of the government. This is precisely what William Paterson did when he set up the Bank of England. Similar banks soon appeared in every nation in Europe.
"Each of these central banks became the most powerful influence in its particular country, both economically and politically. It became the manager of money and credit for the nation. It handled major investments in agriculture, industry, homes, and factories. Best of all, it loaned money to the government, especially in times of an emergency such as a war.
"The governors of these banks soon found themselves in the position of managing the affairs of government as well as the economy.
Central Banks Suffer from Two Temptations
"The record shows that when the managers of a central bank in any particular country are looking around for ways and means to accumulate more wealth, they are often tempted by two things which are inherently evil and totally destructive to the foundation of civilized countries. One is to encourage an involvement in war so the nation will be forced to borrow heavily. Bonds (which are really government IOUs paying substantial interest to the lenders) are considered to be a most valuable form of collateral assets in a central bank.
"The other temptation is to promote a cycle of 'boom and bust' economics. This simply consists of starting a boom with generous loans at low interest and easy credit and after a few years suddenly raising the interest rates, calling in loans, and bankrupting homeowners, industries, farmers, and millions of people who had trusted the bank to continue its policies.
"Some economists, including Karl Marx, have tried to maintain that these boom-and-bust cycles are an inescapable characteristic of a free-market economy. The truth of the matter is that these so-called boom-and-bust cycles are primarily a phenomenon of manipulated economics, engineered by men who find themselves in an extremely powerful position to control money and credit but seem to lack the moral integrity to resist the opportunity of fleecing the common people who have genuinely trusted them."
The Founders' Answer to the Wall Street Mess
First of all, the people must recognize the current "crisis" is man-made and the market is trying to adjust to unnatural tampering of it by scheming financiers and politicians.
Secondly, it will do no good to put more band-aids on the boiler in the form of more debt brought about by the issuance of worthless money and credit created out of nothing. Eventually this inflated monetary bubble is going to burst unless it is gradually deflated by making basic changes to our system to restore sanity and honesty.
Thirdly, Americans must be aware that this is another attempt to further consolidate economic power. Politicians say that the credit markets are drying up, and yet the largest banks like Bank of America and J P Morgan Chase seem to have the money necessary to buyout the failing companies and banks. We seem to be fast approaching the predicted time when no one will be able to buy or sell without obeying the demands of those who have consolidated enormous economic power over us.
Fourthly, by their own admission, most politicians in Washington do not have answers to this current situation. It is definitely time, with an election coming soon, to make wholesale changes in public officials who really know the Founders proven, workable solutions and have the courage to implement them.
It is interesting that CNN, in a recent attempt to find answers, turned to a congressman who does know the answers to the current crisis. Here is what Congressman Ron Paul told CNN when asked his opinion about the proposed $700 billion bailout:
"Well, I think that's a mistake because we don't have the money. But that doesn't mean you have to do nothing. I mean, we could reform the system. We could return to sound money. We could balance our budget. We could change our foreign policy. We could take care of our people at home. We could lower taxes. There are a lot of things that we can do. But the worst thing that we can do is perpetuate the bad policies that gave us this trouble in the first place, and that is that we no longer, over the last quite a few decades, believed in free-market capitalism. Capital is supposed to come from savings. We're supposed to work hard and save.
"As a matter of fact, the Chinese work hard, right now, and they save, and they're buying up the world. But we borrow and spend and consume, and now it's caught up to us and it's undermining our whole system. ... So this $700 billion is not going to do it.
"... this plan does not help Main Street. This is Wall Street in big trouble and sucking in Main Street, now, and dumping all the bills on Main Street. ... And you can't solve the problem of inflation, which is the creation of money and credit out of thin air, by more money and credit out of thin air, and not changing policy. We have to change basic policy....
"Yes, it would be painful, but it wouldn't last so long. What they're doing now, they're propping up a failed system so the agony lasts longer. They're doing exactly what we did in the Depression.... So, yes, there are going to be losses, but everybody lived beyond their means when the prices of houses were going up. Nobody cared about it. They kept borrowing against it. Oh, yes, that was fine and dandy. Everybody was making money, and homeowners kept borrowing and living beyond their means. Now they have to live beneath their means....
"What the government is doing now -- and this new program is trying to prop up prices. You want the price structure to adjust. You want the price of houses to go down. You don't want to fix the price of housing. You can't price-fix. We've had too much of that. We need a market economy. We need to believe in ourselves. We need to believe and understand how the economy got us -- how the government got us into this mess. And believe me, it wouldn't be that tough. It would be a bad year. But, this way, it's going to be a bad decade."
