Reporter / Activist Removed from Fred Thompson Press Conference

I just got this and find it indicative of the way so-called "conservatives" and those on the inside in D.C. handle things. This woman was doing nothing wrong, asked one simple question (right at the beginning) and continued filming his answers to others' questions. She was unobtrusive and made no loud remarks or comments until the cops appeared out of the blue to drag her away for no apparent reason...

Watch the video here:

For those of you who aren't on top of what's happening politically within the GOP, Fred Thompson (his face is famous as an actor) is not currently in the running for President in 2008. He is, however, considered a "staunch conservative" and will enter the running at the best moment when he can use his influence to lure truly conservative GOP members away from Ron Paul's campaign.

This scam will be what those who control this country use to keep the elections within their control and to stamp out the Ron Paul campaign before he gets too popular...

They are already having a hard time justifying their keeping the national media from mentioning his name, so this counter-strategy will happen soon.

Got comments? Email me, dammit!

IRS Loses Challenge to Prove Tax Liability!

Lawyer is acquitted after arguing income levy lacks legal foundation

The Internal Revenue Service has lost a lawyer's challenge in front of a jury to prove a constitutional foundation for the nation's income tax, and the victorious attorney now is setting his sights higher.

"I think now people are beginning to realize that this has got to be the largest fraud, backed up by intimidation and extortion and by the sheer force of taking peoples property and hard-earned money without any lawful authorization whatsoever," lawyer Tom Cryer told WND just days after a jury in Louisiana acquitted him of two criminal tax counts.

And before you consign him to the legions of "tin foil hat brigades" who argue against paying taxes, and then want payment to explain how to do that, he addresses the issue up front.

"These snake oil peddlers have conned millions of dollars out of many well-intended patriots and left a trail of broken lives in their wake. … These charlatans should be avoided, not only because they will lead you to bankruptcy and prison, but because by association they discredit those who are telling the truth," he said.

The truth, he said, is where he comes in, with the launch of a new Truth Attack website that is intended to build on his victory, and create a coalition of resources to defeat – ultimately – the income tax in the United States.

Although the legal citations in the case tend to run the length of paragraphs, Cryer told WND the underlying issue is not that complicated. Essentially, he argued that income is not necessarily any money that comes to a person, but rather categories such as profit and interest.

He said the free exchange of labor for compensation has been upheld as a right by the Supreme Court, but that doesn't necessarily make the compensation income.

If ever such an argument were to be presented widely, Cryer said, the income to the federal government would plummet. But not to worry, he said, the expenses could be reduced equally by eliminating programs, departments and agencies that also have no foundation in the Constitution.

"The Founding Fathers intentionally restricted the taxing powers of the new federal government as a measure of restraint on its size. By exceeding that limited taxing authority the federal government has been able to obtain resources beyond its intended reach, and that money has enabled the federal government to exceed its authority," he said.

For example, he said, the Constitution does not empower the federal government to regulate education, or employment, and agriculture, yet it does so.

The jury in U.S. District Court in Louisiana voted 12-0 to find Cryer, of Shreveport, not guilty of failure to file income taxes for two years. He had been indicted in 2006 on charges of failing to pay $73,000 to the IRS in 2000 and 2001. The next step in his personal case will be up to the IRS and prosecutors, if they choose to continue the issue, he said.

But for the rest of the nation, he's working with Save-a-Patriot, the Free Enterprise Society, Live Free Now and his own Lie Free Zone to spread the message of the truth.

"There are three points that are important," he told WND. "There's no law making the average working man liable [for income taxes], there's no law or regulation that allows the IRS to contend that earnings are 100 percent profit received in exchange for nothing, and the right to earn a living through any lawful occupation is a constitutionally protected fundamental right, and it is exempt from taxation."

Spokesman Robert Marvin in Washington's IRS office told WND the Internal Revenue Code provides for taxation on salaries or wages, but when pressed for a specific citation, or constitutional provision, he said, "I can't comment."

Cryer's encounter with tax law began more than a decade ago when a friend told him the income tax was sham. Cryer started researching, hoping to keep his friend out of trouble. But his conclusions, after years of research, were exactly what his friend told him.

He researched not only tax laws, but also the documents pertaining to the drafting of the U.S. Constitution as well as the first income tax.

He said throughout his battle, he's offered at every turn to pay taxes if the IRS could show him the authorization, and that never has happened.

"The Criminal Investigation Division and Department of Justice both responded only with 'your position is frivolous.' I had never stated a position, so how could they know whether it was frivolous?" he said. "Imagine my sending you a bill for $1,000 and when you call me and ask what the bill was for I simply said, 'that position is frivolous, just write the check and send it in.'"

His acquittal, he said, was a precedent because it means "people can see and recognize the truth."

He said multiple Supreme Court opinions have affirmed an individual's ownership of his or her own labor, and "exercising your fundamental rights" is not taxable. "It is definitely a trade. What most people receive in the form of wages, salaries or in my case fees that they personally earned for their labor is not received in exchange for nothing."

He said there might be a profit that should be taxable, but there might not.

"The IRS lets Wal-Mart sell a trillion dollars worth of goods, but they can back out their cost of goods [before being taxed,]" he said. "The IRS considers, in the case of a Wal-Mart wage earner, 100 percent of what he takes in is profit."

"But he's using his life, energy and work lifespan, and depleting it as he goes," Cryer told WND. "[Working] is a God-given fundamental right that is protected under the Constitution and can't be taxed any more than exercising freedom of speech."

While he waits to see what, if anything, the IRS and Justice Department will do next in his case, he's working to coordinate the groups that are battling taxation as unconstitutional.

"I have started a campaign to unify [the work] and we've got a number of organizations that are sponsoring and supporting this campaign," he said. The goal is to get everyone "who is aware of the truth" organized so they can spread the word.

He warned without a restoration of constitutional basics, the nation is lost.

"Read your Constitution and you will see that the federal role does not include ANY authority to regulate or tax any citizen directly and that WE expressly reserved the right to rule and govern ourselves as States, not as mere political subdivisions," his website says.

"The Constitution does not allow the government to run your lives, but the money it is stealing from millions of Americans is the fuel for its over-reaching and kibitzing. Take the money back and we and our states and communities can again be free," he said.

The fight is over "our FREEDOM from rule by a DISTANT RULER, just as we fought to free ourselves of a distant England over 200 years ago," he said.

Top Secret Document Describes Using Psychological Operations, Outright Military Force And Media Propaganda Against U.S. Citizens
by Hal Turner

North Bergen, NJ -- As a radio talk show host, I receive a whole slew of e-mail and regular mail about virtually every issue under the sun. Much of it gets deleted or thrown away. Some of it results in stories appearing on my web site or being discussed on my show. Every once in awhile, something akin to a bombshell arrives and yesterday, July 18, 2007 was one such day.

I came into possession of portions of a U.S. military plan which was allegedly classified "Top Secret." This put me in a bind because without having a security clearance myself, having something which is Classified is unlawful. Reading such a document is also unlawful and revealing it to the public is definietly unlawful. So, I thought about it. I decided screw it, I'm going to read it.

As I read the document, my blood ran cold. Chills ran up my spine. The hair on the back of my neck stood up. My gut started churning. This document is an operational plan to use U.S. military troops against U.S. Citizens!

The plan says "A perceived serious potential of dissident American groups rising up against constituted authority has been clearly identified by counter-intelligence agencies.[Underlining mine]

The plan goes on to say why people are clearly thinking of rising up and throwing-off our federal government by saying "The stated cause for such an uprising appear to be growing dissatisfaction with the course and conduct of the war in Iraq, the chronic inability of Congress to deal with various pressing issues and the perception of widespread corruption and indifference to public needs."

Sounds accurate to me. In fact, it describes perfectly reasonable justification for the America people to utilize our original right of self-defense against such a government or for us to impose reform!

Most stunning about the plan is that it talks about political reform and offers an unbelievably out-of-touch, completely un-American observation: "Reform may be necessary, but reform is a matter for the state . . . . ."

A matter for the state? We The People ARE the state. We The People decide on reform. For this U.S. military plan to assert "Reform may be necessary, but reform is a matter for the state" is like reading something out of the old Soviet Union! What planet are these people on?

The truly chilling parts of this plan involve the use of "Informant nets" of Americans literally spying on their fellow citizens and "Block Control" where the plan calls for "trusted resident reports on the activities of people in their neighborhoods." Folks, this is what Fidel Castro does in Communist Cuba!

As you read the details below, remember this: This plan has been drawn up by OUR military. The military WE hired, WE train, WE equip, WE feed, WE clothe, WE house. It is an OUTRAGE that anyone in our military would DARE to even create such plan, nevermind try to implement it!

A Blunt warning to our Government and our Military:

In our nation of 300 million people, there are at least 95 million lawful gun owners. Those 95 million guns owners lawfully possess 212 million firearms.

Even if the government recalled ALL military members from around the entire world, they would have a force of only about two million.

95 million gun owners versus 2 million troops. I think we all know how this would turn out: the government would be slaughtered.

In fact, if only ten percent of the 95 million gun owners had guts enough to fight, we would still outnumber the military almost 3:1.

We The People of the United States aren't the least bit worried about government tanks and planes, those tools are useless in guerilla warfare. Want proof? Iraq! The U.S. government is getting its ass kicked over there. Government wouldn't last a week if they tried implenting this plan here.

Government would do well to remember they exist at the whim and behest of the American people. Government in this land exists to serve us as we direct.

The power government wields belongs to The People. We The People merely LEND part of our power to government and we have the absolute right to take that power back at any time we deem appropriate. In fact, the founding fathers made clear we can take it back in any MANNER we deem appropriate! That's why they gave us the Second Amendment!

If the U.S. government or military dares attempt to implement this plan, they should expect to be killed.

----------------- PRECIS OF THE PLAN ---------------------

Classification: Top Secret-Noforn as of 1 June 2007

Distribution Restriction: Distribution authorized to the DOD and DOD contractors only to maintain operations security. This determination was made on 1 June 2007. Other requests for this document must be referred to (redacted)

Destruction Notice: Destroy by any method that will prevent disclosure of contents or reconstruction of the document. .

This publication uses the term insurgent to describe those taking part in any activity designed to undermine or to overthrow the established authorities

Counterinsurgency is those military, paramilitary, political, economic, psychological, and civicactions taken by a government to defeat insurgency (JP 1-02). It is an offensive approach involving all elements of national power; it can take place across the range of operations and spectrum of conflict

In dealing with the local populace, the primary aims must be to:

·Protect the population.

·Establish local political institutions.

·Reinforce local governments.

·Eliminate insurgent capabilities.

·Exploit information from local sources.

An insurgency is organized movement aimed at the overthrow of a constituted government through use of subversion and armed conflict (JP 1-02). It is a protracted politico-military struggle designed to weaken government control and legitimacy while increasing insurgent control. Political power is the central issue in an insurgency.

An insurgent organization normally consists of four elements:


Combatants (main forces, regional forces, local forces).

Cadre (local political leaders that are also called the militants).

Mass base (the bulk of the membership).

The support of the people, passive or active then, is the center of gravity. It must be gained in whatever proportion is necessary to sustain the insurgent movement (or, contrariwise, to defeat it). As in any political campaign, all levels of support are relative.

Insurgent movements begin as "fire in the minds of men." Insurgent leaders commit themselves to building a new world. They construct the organization to carry through this desire. Generally, popular grievances become insurgent causes when interpreted and shaped by the insurgent leadership. The insurgency grows if the cadre that is local insurgent leaders and representatives can establish a link between the insurgent movement and the desire for solutions to grievances sought by the local population

Insurgent leaders will exploit opportunities created by government security force actions. The behavior of security forces is critical. Lack of security force discipline leads to alienation, and security force abuse of the populace is a very effective insurgent recruiting tool. Consequently, specific insurgent tactical actions are often planned to frequently elicit overreaction from security force individuals and units.

Insurgencies are dynamic political movements, resulting from real or perceived grievance or neglect that leads to alienation from an established government.

A successful counterinsurgency will result in the neutralization by the state of the insurgency and its effort to form a counterstate. While many abortive insurgencies are defeated by military and police actions alone, if an insurgency has tapped into serious grievances and has mobilized a significant portion of the population, simply returning to the status quo may not be an option. Reform may be necessary, but reform is a matter for the state, using all of its human and material resources. Security forces are only one such resource. The response must be multifaceted and coordinated, yet states typically charge their security forces with "waging counterinsurgency." This the security forces cannot do alone.

These imperatives are-

· Facilitate establishment or reestablishment of a 'legitimate government'.

· Counterinsurgency requires perseverance.

· Foster popular support for the incumbent US government.

· Prepare to perform functions and conduct operations that are outside normal scope of training.

· Coordinate with US governmental departments and agencies, and with vital non-governmental, agencies.

Urban operations.

· Protection of government facilities.

· Protection of infrastructure.

· Protection of commercial enterprises vital to the HN economy.

· Protection of cultural facilities.

· Prevention of looting.

· Military police functions.

· Close interaction with civilians.

· Assistance with reconstruction projects.

· Securing the national borders.

· Training or retraining a national military police and security force.

Establishing and maintaining local government credibility.

· Contributing local government is both tangible and psychological. Local security forces must reinforce and be integrated into the plan at every stage.

· Facilitate and use information and intelligence obtained from local sources to gain access to the insurgent's economic and social base of support, order of battle, tactics, techniques, and procedures.

Army forces help local pro-government police, paramilitary, and military forces perform counterinsurgency, area security, or local security operations. They advise and assist in finding, dispersing, capturing, and destroying the insurgent force.

US forces may conduct offensive operations to disrupt and destroy insurgent combat formations. These operations prevent the insurgents from attacking government-controlled areas.

There are many organizations and extensive resources available to aid counterinsurgent forces.

Commanders should not overlook the aid these organizations may provide. All forces assigned an AO or function should determine which departments and agencies are assisting in that AO and coordinate actions so that there is no duplication of effort. Such departments,

councils and agencies include-

· National Security Council.

· Department of Defense.

· Department of State.

· Department of Justice.

· Department of the Treasury.

· Department of Homeland Security.

· Department of Agriculture.

· Department of Commerce.

· Central Intelligence Agency.

· Department of Transportation

Various governmental departments directly administer or support other governmental agencies. Examples of these US agencies are-

· The US Coast Guard (under Department of Homeland Security).

· The Federal Bureau of Investigation (under Department of Justice).

· Immigration Customs Enforcement (under Department of Homeland Security).

· Federal Communications Commission

The proper application of force is a critical component to any successful counterinsurgency operation. In a counterinsurgency, the center of gravity is public support. In order to defeat an insurgent force, US forces must be able to separate insurgents from the population. At the same time, US forces must conduct themselves in a manner that enables them to maintain popular domestic support. Excessive or indiscriminant use of force is likely to alienate the local populace, thereby increasing support for insurgent forces. Insufficient use of force results in increased risks to US forces and perceived weaknesses that can jeopardize the mission by emboldening insurgents and undermining domestic popular support. Achieving the appropriate balance requires a thorough understanding of the nature and causes of the insurgency, the end state, and the military's role in a counterinsurgency operation. Nevertheless, US forces always retain the right to use necessary and proportional force for individual and unit self-defense in response to a hostile act or demonstrated hostile intent.

The media, print and broadcast (radio, television and the Internet), play a vital role in societies involved in a counterinsurgency. Members of the media have a significant influence and shaping impact on political direction, national security objectives, and policy and national will. The media is a factor in military operations. It is their right and obligation to report to their respective audiences on the use of military force. They demand logistic support and access to military operations while refusing to be controlled. Their desire for immediate footage and on-the-spot coverage of events, and the increasing contact with units and Soldiers (for example, with embedded reporters) require commanders and public affairs officers to provide guidance to leaders and Soldiers on media relations. However, military planners must provide and enforce ground rules to the media to ensure operations security. Public affairs offices plan for daily briefings and a special briefing after each significant event because the media affect and influence each potential target audience external and internal to the AO. Speaking with the media in a forward-deployed area is an opportunity to explain what our organizations and efforts have accomplished.

Continuous PSYOP are mounted to-

· Counter the effects of insurgent propaganda.

· Relate controls to the security and well-being of the population.

· Portray a favorable governmental image.

..Control measures must-

· Be authorized by national laws and regulations (counterparts should be trained not to improvise unauthorized measures).

· Be tailored to fit the situation (apply the minimum force required to achieve the de-sired result).

· Be supported by effective local intelligence.

· Be instituted in as wide an area as possible to prevent bypass or evasion.

· Be supported by good communications.

· Be enforceable.

· Be lifted as the need diminishes.

· Be compatible, where possible, with local customs and traditions.

· Establish and maintain credibility of local government.

A control program may be developed in five phases:

· Securing and defending the area internally and externally.

· Organizing for law enforcement.

· Executing cordon and search operations.

· Screening and documenting the population (performing a detailed census).

· Performing public administration, to include resource control.

Support to the judiciary may be limited to providing security to the existing courts or may lead to more comprehensive actions to build local, regional, and national courts and the required support apparatus. To avoid overcrowding in police jails, the courts must have an efficient and timely magistrate capability, ideally co-located with police stations and police jails, to review cases for trial.

Cordon and search is a technique used by military and police forces in both urban and rural environments. It is frequently used by counterinsurgency forces conducting a population and resource control mission against small centers of population or subdivisions of a larger community. To be effective, cordon and search operations must have sufficient forces to effectively cordon off and thoroughly search target areas, to include subsurface areas.

PSYOP, civil affairs, and specialist interrogation teams should augment cordon and search orces to increase the effectiveness of operations. Consider the following when conducting cordon and search operations:

Cordon and search operations may be conducted as follows:

Disposition of troops should-

· Facilitate visual contact between posts within the cordon.

· Provide for adequate patrolling and immediate deployment of an effective re-serve force.

Priority should be given to-

· Sealing the administrative center of the community.

· Occupying all critical facilities.

· Detaining personnel in place.

· Preserving and securing all records, files, and other archives.

Key facilities include-

· Administrative buildings.

· Police stations.

· News media facilities.

· Post offices.

· Communications centers.

· Transportation offices and motor pools.

· Prisons and other places of detention.

· Schools.

· Medical facilities.

Search Techniques include-

· Search teams of squad size organized in assault, support, and security elements.

One target is assigned per team.

· Room searches are conducted by two-person teams.

· Room search teams are armed with pistols, assault weapons, and automatic weapons.

· Providing security for search teams screening operations and facilities.

Pre-search coordination includes-

· Between control personnel and screening team leaders.

· Study of layout plans.

· Communications, that is, radio, whistle, and hand signals.

· Disposition of suspects.

· On-site security.

· Guard entrances, exits (to include the roof), halls, corridors, and tunnels.

· Assign contingency tasks for reserve.

· Room searches conducted by two- or three-person teams.

· Immobilize occupants with one team member.

· Search room with other team member.

· Search all occupants. When available, a third team member should be the re-corder.

· Place documents in a numbered envelope and tag the associated individual with a corresponding number.


Screening and documentation include following:

· Systematic identification and registration.

· Issuance of individual identification cards containing-

A unique number.

Picture of individual.

Personal identification data.


An official stamp (use different colors for each administration region).

Family group census cards, an official copy of which is retained at the local po-lice agency. These must include a picture and appropriate personal data.

Frequent use of mobile and fixed checkpoints for inspection, identification, and reg-istration of documents.

Preventing counterfeiting of identification and registration documents by laminat-ing and embossing.

Programs to inform the population of the need for identification and registration.

Covert surveillance is a collection effort with the responsibility fixed at the intelligence/security division or detective division of the police department. Covert techniques, ranging from application of sophisticated electronics systems to informants, should include-

Informant nets. Reliability of informants should be verified. Protection of identity is a must.

Block control. Dividing a community or populated area into zones where a trusted resident reports on the activities of the population. If the loyalty of block leaders is questionable, an informant net can be established to verify questionable areas.

Units designated for counterinsurgency operations

· 115th MIB, Schofield, HI

· 704th MIB, Fort Made, MD, Collaboration with NSA

· 513st MIB, Fort Gordon, GA in Collaboration with NSA

· Arlington Hall Station, VA

· Aberdeen Proving Ground (Maryland)

· US Army Intelligence and Security Command ­ INSCOM- Huachuca ( Arizona )

· INTELLIGENCE THREAT and ANALYSIS CENTER ( Center Analysis for threat and Intelligence )

· 501st Military Intelligence Brigade EAC

· 3rd Military Intelligence Battalion Exploitation Area

.. . . . . . The document continues, page after page, throughout almost nine-hundred pages. In those other pages, the document outlines "REX 84" "FEMA concentration camps", already established, constructed and manned inside the United States, to be utilized to house "insurgents" who are rounded-up by government.

Conclusions When I read the document, I knew that I could be criminally prosecuted for having it, prosecuted on a separate charge for reading it and prosecuted yet again for releasing information contained within it.

I decided that the threat to Liberty posed by the document made it imperative that I take action and I have done so. Now, all of you know!

I also realized that in order for the U.S. Government to prosecute me, the document would have to be authentic. They would have to admit the Document is authentic and actually Classified in order to bring any prosecution.

Since such an admission would prove me right and be an ominous warning to all of you that real trouble is here, I suspect I am safe from any reprisals for the time being. It's a gamble with enormous consequences, but saving our Republic from a tyrannical government is worth my risk.

It is clear to me that very serious things are on the horizon here in America. It will be up to us, citizen-patriots, to step up to defend our liberty. I am ready. Are you?

How Will They Destroy Ron Paul?
by Mike Whitney

How will the media destroy Ron Paul?

We all know the drill by now. Whenever a politician with character and
principles throws his hat in the ring the media descends on him like feral
hounds on a pork chop. It'll be no different with Paul. The only difference
this time is that we should all be aware of what's really going on.

Did you see the Republican debates?

Paul won hands-down. He stood out in a crowd of colorless toadies and became
an overnight internet-sensation. In fact, an ABC survey showed that Paul won
the first debate with an 85% majority; while C-SPAN showed him at 70%. Maybe
the stats are just a fluke of internet voting, but it's sure made the boys
in the boardrooms nervous.

You see, it doesn't matter if Paul wins or not. What matters is that his
anti-government message is a hammer-blow to America's biggest
powerbrokers---and they don't like it. They'd rather he just shut up and go
away. They've heard enough about the Military Commissions Act, martial law,
and the fraudulent war on terror. They've put a lot of money and energy into
the new American police state and they aren't about to let some libertarian
party-pooper destroy all their hard work.

That's why the right wing think tanks are buzzing like a hornets nest right
now. The sleeves are rolled up, the ash trays are full, and America's best
propagandists are putting the finishing touches on a plan to topedo the Paul
campaign. They want to take him down now, before he causes any more trouble.

My guess is that they will use a strategy similar to the one they used on
John Kerry, that is---keep it simple---attack on 3 fronts and repeat the
charges from every soapbox in America. In Kerry's case, the mantra went like

1. Kerry "flip-flops"

2 He's a Massachusetts liberal.

3 He faked his war injuries to look like a hero.

The effectiveness of this strategy depends on how often the charges are
repeated and from how many outlets. If it is well executed, the voter will
naturally feel confused and less enthusiastic about his candidate. The
propaganda-barrage had a withering effect on Kerry's support-base.

It may be that the media will take a different tack with Paul. Perhaps,
they'll use a saturation-campaign similar to their attack on Howard Dean in
the 2004 Democratic primary. The infamous "Dean Scream" appeared over 900
times in the major media in the first 72 hours. Now that's the way
propaganda is supposed to work!

Technicians were able to isolate Dean's yelp from the background noise of a
crowded convention hall and succeeded in making him look like a complete
It worked like a charm. Dean's star sunk overnight and the country was
"spared" the prospect of an antiwar candidate.

Isn't that what media is for---to eliminate the enemies of the warmongering
corporate chieftains?

My guess is that, sometime in the next 2 weeks, we'll see a big push by to
derail the Paul campaign. Already Sean Hannity, Glen Beck and FOX News have
taken a few cheap-shots, but so far no one has laid a glove on him. Its time
to wheel out the heavy artillery and pound him into the sand.

But what is Paul saying that rattles his rivals so much? Is it because he
stands out in a crowd of plaster-hair phonies and talks about liberty and
non-intervention instead of fear and torture?

This is how Paul summarized 9-11 and our misguided war in Iraq:

"They attack us because we've been over there. We've been bombing Iraq for
10 years. We've been in the Middle East [for years]. I think Reagan was
right. We don't understand the irrationality of Middle Eastern politics.
Right now, we're building an embassy in Iraq that is bigger than the
Vatican. We're building 14 permanent bases. What would we say here if China
was doing this in our country or in the Gulf of Mexico? Would we be

Or this:

"I believe the CIA is correct when it warns us about blowback. We overthrew
the Iranian government in 1953 and their taking the hostages was the
reaction. This dynamic persists and we ignore it at our risk. They're not
attacking us because we're rich and free, they're attacking us because we're
over there."

The rest of the Republican candidates use every opportunity to invoke the
hobgoblin of Islamic fanaticism---the prevailing myth which is fuels the new
American fascism. Paul is the one exception. He sees the war on terror as
inherently threatening to personal freedom---and he's not afraid to say so.

He's also outspoken on other issues which are typically verbotem in the MSM.
Here's what he has to say about the maneuverings of the Federal Reserve, the
secretive cabal that controls our money:

"Congress created the Federal Reserve System in 1913. Between then and 1971
the principle of sound money was systematically undermined. Between 1913 and
1971, the Federal Reserve found it much easier to expand the money supply at
will for financing war or manipulating the economy with little resistance
from Congress-- while benefiting the special interests that influence

Since printing paper money is nothing short of counterfeiting, the issuer of
the international currency must always be the country with the military
might to guarantee control over the system. This magnificent scheme seems
the perfect system for obtaining perpetual wealth for the country that
issues the de facto world currency. The one problem, however, is that such a
system destroys the character of the counterfeiting nation's people-- just
as was the case when gold was the currency and it was obtained by conquering
other nations. And this destroys the incentive to save and produce, while
encouraging debt and runaway welfare."

Do you really think that the board-members of the "privately-owned" Central
Bank want the American people to know about the extortionist racket they've
been running for the last 90 years in contravention of the US Constitution?

Paul's demand that we abolish the Federal Reserve is strikingly similar to
that of his ideological ancestor Thomas Jefferson, who said:

"If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of our
currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and the
corporations that will grow up will deprive the people of all property until
their children wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.
The issuing of power should be taken from the banks and restored to the
people, to whom it properly belongs."

Isn't that what is happening right now? Doesn't the Fed inflate one massive
equity bubble after another so that working class people are lured in by
low-interest rates and then lose their shirts when the bubble pops? This is
how the banking elites shift wealth from one class to another. It may be an
old scam, but it never fails.

Jefferson and Paul are both right. Free people cannot control their own
destiny unless they control their own currency. The Federal Reserve must be
abolished and, as Paul says, "The sooner the better".

He's right about deficits and monetary policy, too. Here's what he says:

"The greatest threat facing America today is not terrorism, or foreign
economic competition, or illegal immigration. The greatest threat facing
America today is the disastrous fiscal policies of our own government,
marked by shameless deficit spending and Federal Reserve currency
devaluation. It is this one-two punch - Congress spending more than it can
tax or borrow, and the Fed printing money to make up the difference - that
threatens to impoverish us by further destroying the value of our dollars".

The men who own the media don't want this type of populism on the air-waves.
After all, they love deficits. The trade deficits provide cheap capital for
the stock market while the budget deficit borrows money from future
generations for lavish tax cuts for Bush's wealthy buddies.

No wonder they hate Paul!

Most of all, Paul is feared for his defense of liberty and his rejection of
Bush's sweeping changes to the Constitution. He's been a strong critic of
the Military Commissions Act, which permits torture and arbitrary detention
of American citizens or foreign nationals on the orders of the executive. He
has also condemned warrantless wiretaps, presidential signings,
extraordinary rendition, the Real ID Act, and the Orwellian-sounding
"Enforcement of the Laws to Restore Public Order Act'' which allows Bush to
declare martial law at his own discretion.

Paul's tireless defense of personal freedom makes him the de facto enemy of
the Bush Brown-shirts. He's watched the country slide further and further
towards military dictatorship and now he's put himself on the firing-line to
defend our way of life.

That's real patriotism. And, that is why they want to destroy him.

In a recent speech on the floor of the House Paul said:

"Patriotism is more closely linked to dissent than it is to conformity and a
blind desire for safety and security. Understanding the magnificent rewards
of a free society makes us unbashful in its promotion, fully realizing that
maximum wealth is created and the greatest chance for peace comes from a
society respectful of individual liberty".

Thanks for that, Mr. Paul. And, good luck.

"Mein Kampf": Hitler Used Rothschild Banker's Typewriter

by Henry Makow Ph.D.

Sometimes it's the symbolic details which speak volumes.

Emil Georg von Stauss, the president of Germany's largest bank, the Deutsche
Bank, lent Hitler a portable Remington so he could write his infamous
anti-Jewish banker manifesto "Mein Kampf."

Von Stauss, a principal Nazi Party fund raiser, also was a longtime business
associate of the Rothschilds.

Hitler dictated "Mein Kampf" to typists Rudolf Hess and Emil Maurice during
his cushy eight-months stay at Landsberg Prison in April-December 1924. (His
five-year sentence was commuted. He had a two-room suite with a view and was
allowed to receive gifts and visitors.)

Von Stauss was part of a "Hitler support group" consisting of wealthy
Illuminati. Helene Bechstein, the wife of the piano manufacturer pretended
to be Hitler's adopted mother and smuggled out sections of the manuscript.
She took care of all Hitler's expenses and hoped he would marry her daughter
Lotte. Franz Thyssen, the chairman of United Steelworks sent Hitler a
birthday gift of 100,000 gold marks.

This account was taken from Rudolf Hess' letters by Belgian author Stan
Lauryssens, ("The Man Who Invented the Third Reich" 1999, pp.130-135.)

It contradicts the image we have of Hitler in 1924 leading a grass roots
fringe party. In fact, he was a front man for the international bankers he
pretended to oppose. But if we read the "The Protocols of Zion" carefully,
we shouldn't be surprised.

The Secret Masonry is setting up "our own, to all appearance, off position,
which in at least one of its organs will present what looks like the very
antipodes to us. Our real opponents at heart will accept this simulated
opposition as their own and will show us their cards." (Protocol 12.11)

Both Nazism and Communism were fake opposition concocted by Illuminati
bankers. As we are dragged kicking and screaming into the next world war,
let's recall that the people who issue our currency are behind every war and
control both sides.


The Deutsche Bank helped to create Hitler because he represented war profit.
During the Second World War, the Deutsche Bank profited when it took over
banks and industries in occupied countries, "Aryanized" Jewish-owned
businesses, and confiscated Jewish accounts. (See Harold James, "The
Deutsche Bank and the Nazi Economic War Against the Jews" 2001.)

Before becoming president of the bank, Von Stauss was General Director of
Steaua Romana, a Romanian oil company owned by the bank. He was Managing
Director of the European Petroleum Union, (EPU), an oil cartel. The E.P.U.
was "an international association of industrialists whose object was to make
the greatest possible profit on their products."

The EPU represented the Rothschild interests, the Nobel interests and the
Deutsche Bank interests. The latter two probably included Rothschild

After the Nazi seizure of power, Von Stauss coordinated the war buildup at
major German corporations such as Daimler Benz and BMW, who were connected
to the Deutsche Bank.

One book describes him as "an enigmatic character of the Wiemar and National
Socialist periods, albeit one who has rarely been given his due in
historical studies." While a major supporter, he never became a member of
the Nazi Party and "always maintained good relations with prominent economic
figures who were Jews such as his colleague Oscar Wassermann at the Deutsche
Bank." (David Bankier ed. "Probing the Depth of German Anti Semitism," 2000,
pp 256-257.)

Nevertheless he was instrumental in Aryanizing Jewish assets, even those of
Jews who had long ago converted and intermarried. Clearly there were in-Jews
and out-Jews, i.e. Illuminati or not.


War is the centerpiece of the bankers' longterm plan to decimate, degrade
and enslave humanity, which is necessary to protect their fraudulent world
monopoly over our credit. This logic explains the real meaning of
"revolution," and why they consider war "revolutionary."

Mankind is stunted because a tiny clique usurped control of money making.
This began when gold dealers realized they could issue receipts for gold
they didn't have. They became bankers who figured they could also issue more
loans than they have money, by a simple bookkeeping entry.

They used this Golden Goose to take control of the world's wealth and put
accomplices in charge of government, media and education. They arranged for
our national governments to guarantee the paper they print.

War distracts us from this state of affairs, degrades, brutalizes, and
increases debt and profits. (The bankers naturally put most faith in
government debt.) Central bankers also love socialism. They buy people with
their own debt.

Woodrow Wilson was a pawn of this "money power." But to save his soul, he
said American industrialists are afraid of "a power somewhere, so organized,
so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive" that they
dared not speak above their breath.

Wilson actually identified this power:

"The great monopoly in this country is the monopoly of big credits. A great
industrial nation is controlled by its system of credits. The growth of the
nation, therefore, and all of our activities, are in the hands of a few men
who chill and check and destroy genuine economic freedom." (Robertson,
"Human Ecology", p. 166.)


War, including the "war on terror", is designed to create a world police
state to protect the central banker monopoly on power and wealth. With the
exception of Ron Paul and Dennis Kucinich, it doesn't really matter who gets
elected. They all work for the central bankers.

The Illuminati bankers sacrificed Jews when they created Nazism, Communism
and Zionism. If necessary to advance their New World Order, they will do so

Masons, Bilderbergs, Communists, Jesuits and Zionists are all empowered by
the bankers. Mankind will never get on the right foot until bankers turn
over their power to create money using our credit. In the meantime,our lives
are shaped by a series of fantastic hoaxes, not the least of which is war.
