Whether You Know It or Not, You Are a Slave

In the antebellum South, it was not uncommon for slaves to rent themselves from their masters. As a young man, Frederick Douglass did so, for example. His owner gave him leave to go out on his own, to find employment where he could, and to pocket the pay he received for such work, except that each month he had to pay his master a fixed sum for his freedom. Douglass worked in the shipyards of Baltimore, caulking ships. Aside from his rental payment for his own body, he lived as he wished, subject to his income constraint. He found his own housing, acquired his own food and clothing, and so forth, just as a free wage worker would have done. It strikes me that this practice has much in common with the situation in which an ordinary private person finds himself in any modern country today. The person is in general at liberty to arrange his own employment, spend his earnings as he pleases, acquire his own food and housing, and so on, except that he must pay a rental for this personal liberty, which takes the form of a portion of his earnings that must be paid to the various governments that collect income and employment taxes in the jurisdiction. Lest you imagine that this likening is hyperbolic, consider what happens to someone who resolutely refuses to pay the governments the rental payment for his body. He is subjected to a series of enforcement actions, culminating—if he resists at every step—in his being hauled off to jail and having his personal property seized to satisfy the governments’ demands. Thus, he loses both his property and his personal liberty. People imagine that they own themselves and that they are free. But don’t tell that tale to the tax men. They know who really owns you.

Proof Our Judicial System Is Corrupt

Thousands of people have been exonerated from criminal convictions over the past 10 years. But to blame mere incompetence or negligence would be a mistake. In the majority of these cases, it was criminal and unethical behavior by the courts that put these individuals behind bars in the first place. And this extends all the way up the ladder to the Supreme Court. When you read the following appeal document you’ll begin to understand what I mean and how corrupt the system has become. Corruption is the abuse of power by a public official or any organized system in which part of the system is either not performing duties it was originally intended to, or performing them in an improper way, to the detriment of the system’s original purpose. A common belief is that corruption is a judge taking bribes. Corruption describes any organized, interdependent system in which part of the system is either not performing duties it was originally intended to, or performing them in an improper way, to the detriment of the system’s original purpose. The tragic reality of the world’s biggest corrupt legal system -America’s rigged courts, bribed judges, fake and phony trials, extortion by lawyers, and over 2 million prisoners in the USA jails. The reality is that the United States of America, which proclaims itself the “land of freedom”, has the most dishonest, dangerous and crooked legal system of any developed nation. Legal corruption is covering America like a blanket. The corruption of the USA legal system is well-known, but also well-hidden, by the news services of America’s corporate-owned media. The US media companies are afraid both of reprisal and of the social revolution that would come from exposing the truth. This appeals document should make your blood boil. Have a read… Read The Appeal Document Here To summarize… Police initiate a search of Huskisson’s home BEFORE getting a search warrant. And because they obtained the warrant after the search took place, the appeals court ruled that was within due process and any evidence obtained could be used. The government even conceded the illegal entry, but counters that a later-issued search warrant rendered this ok. It goes on to say… There is no dispute that law enforcement entered Huskisson’s house illegally: entering a home without a warrant is directly proscribed by the language of the Fourth Amendment, which guarantees “[t]he right of the people to be secure in their … houses … against unreasonable... read more

Why We Must Get Big Money Out of Politics

The most important thing we must do to save our democracy is to get big money out of politics. It’s a prerequisite to accomplishing everything else. Today, big money continues to corrupt American politics – creating a vicious cycle that funnels more wealth and power to those at the top and eroding our democracy. In the 2018 midterm elections, wealthy donors and Super-PACs poured millions into the campaigns of the same lawmakers who voted to pass the 2017 tax cuts, which gave them huge windfalls. Consider conservative donors Sheldon and Miriam Adelson, whose casino business received an estimated $700 million windfall, thanks to Trump and Republicans’ tax cuts. The couple then used some of this extra cash to plow more than $113 million dollars into the 2018 election, breaking the record for political contributions by a single household. That’s not a bad return on investment – for them. All told, almost 40 percent of total contributions in the 2018 midterms came from people who donated $10,000 or more. Yet these mega-donors comprise a tiny 0.01 percent of the U.S. population. It’s a worsening vicious cycle: Lawmakers cut taxes and slash regulations for their wealthy campaign donors. Mega-donors and corporations funnel some of that money back into our political system to keep their lackeys in power. Politicians then propose another round of tax cuts, subsidies or bailouts to secure even more donations. If this isn’t corruption, I don’t know what is. It also breeds cynicism in our democracy. The game seems rigged because it is. A 2015 poll found that the majority of Americans say lawmakers are corrupt, out of touch with their constituents, and beholden to special interests. In the 2018 midterms, Americans demanded an end to the corruption. And there are signs lawmakers are finally getting the message. House Democrats’ first piece of legislation aims to end the big-money takeover. We must end this vicious cycle in order to reclaim our democracy. We must get big money out of politics. Now! Government is instituted for the common good; for the protection, safety, prosperity, and happiness of the people; and not for profit, honor, or private interest of any one man, family, or class of men. — John Adams Are you awake yet?

Government Corruption Must Stop

As if by design, more money is being filtered out and diverted from the general public and into the hands of Large Special Interests. This is being done in a variety of ways which includes the gig_economy where we have many short term jobs at the commission with no benefits, especially no healthcare and no pensions two essential elements people need to be secure. So instead of requiring or providing these necessities “our” government looks the other way as its citizenry slips into the greatest wealth disparity it’s ever seen. Why? Because our government is no longer ours to control. It is controlled by the very same interests that it’s supposed to regulate. Now it is the fox that is watching the henhouse, the tail that is wagging the dog. You get the picture. So now that we can see the problem what is it that we should do? I’m surprised the fire and pitchforks haven’t come out by now, but I guess people are too busy feeding their heads. But when they’ve decided they’ve suffered enough, you who know what needs to be done. You just won’t do it. Unfortunately, this isn’t going to be easy. Those who currently hold most the power and money are hopelessly addicted to such and will not be giving it up without a huge fight. This is why it is absolutely essential to first educate ourselves, then educate others. Educate others with the truth! Our goal among other things, to rightfully claim what we never should have delegated away… the right to govern ourselves by becoming the lawmakers without the need of intermediaries. This we can definitely achieve, but not without some effort. But nothing worth anything is rarely obtained without it. As if you still sitting there thinking we can’t change the world, it just means your one of the ones that won’t. Are you awake yet?

The United States needs to stay out of Venezuela

The United States has a disastrous history of military intervention and regime change around the world which has brought suffering to millions of people. It’s bankrupted our country and it’s undermined our national security. We must end this policy now before we get into yet another military conflict… this time in Venezuela. Now President Trump and his administration of already instituted heavy sanctions on Venezuela. They’ve doubled down on their position that all options are on the table. The Venezuelan people are trying to fight for a free and fair democracy, but the United States should not be in the business of intervening of picking who should lead their country and we certainly should not be threatening military action. Venezuela poses no threat to the United States Congress has not authorized the United States to go to war in Venezuela. And there’s no justification for our country to violate the sovereignty of the Venezuelan people. Now, the reality is that threats of US military action and regime change in Venezuela are undermining ongoing efforts to convince North Korea to give up their nuclear weapons program. Which exists because Kim Jong on sees it as the only deterrent against U.S. LED regime change now President Trump is promising North Korea. We will not wage regime change war against them. But at the same time is simultaneously threatening regime change in Venezuela North. Korea is going to look at President Trump’s actions. The United States needs to stay out of Venezuela and let the Venezuelan people determine their own future. Are you awake yet?   America’s Great Awakening book is now available. This country was formed by great men, true Patriots who literally risked everything. With wisdom learned from their forefather’s mistakes as well as their own they formed a plan whereby those of us that came after would never have to take the same risk as long as we remained vigilant. Sadly, we have not held up those standards set by our forefathers. Instead, Patriots are ridiculed for railing against the government, but that is how America came to be a nation. A Patriot does not fight with government simply because he or she does not agree with government, but do so because a Patriot sees the long range harm and danger in “letting things ride” that are created outside of government authority. We’re slowly realizing that a world has been pulled over our eyes to blind us from the Truth,... read more
