SWAT team swarms home, kidnaps children from parents by force

This is a police state action! It happened in the democratic Federal Republic of Germany, it could just as well happen here with the current police state government mindset.

The free nations of the West have been secretly under assault since the Council of Trent by a vile, seditious army of Jesuits to rip from the hearts of men the idea that they are free and place the pope on the throne of their hearts and minds.

The Society of Jesus aka Jesuits:

“ ‘The power of the General (the Black Pope) shall be so unlimited that should he deem it necessary for the honour of God, he shall even be able to send back, or in other directions, those who have come direct from the Popes.’ ” {8}

Ignatius Loyola, 1540

Founder, 1st Jesuit General, 1540-1556


Constitutions

“But not only is all friendly communication forbidden to the Jesuit but he is also placed under constant espionage. He is never permitted to walk about alone, but, whether in the house or out of doors, is always accompanied by two of his brethren — ‘Except the General order otherwise for the greater glory of God [the Pope], and the benefit of the Society.’ . . .

Thus, no one but the General can exercise the right of uttering a single original thought or opinion. It is almost impossible to conceive the power, especially in former times, of a General having at his absolute disposal such an amount of intelligences, wills, and energies.” {9}

Further,

“ . . . the merit of framing the Constitution which was to govern it belongs solely to Ignatius himself. He alone among them all was capable of such a conception. He alone could have devised a scheme by which one free rational being is converted into a mere automaton — acting, speaking, even thinking, according to the expressed will of another. There is no record in history, of any man, be he king, emperor, or pope, exercising such absolute and irresponsible power over his fellow-men as does the General of the Jesuits over his disciples . . .

Thus, the General knowing the past and present life, the thoughts, the desires of every one belonging to the Society, it is easy to understand how he is enabled always to select the fittest person for every special service.” {10}

POLICE STORM HOMESCHOOL CLASS, TAKE CHILDREN BY FORCE

  • 'Officers brought a battering ram and were about to break the door in'
BOB UNRUH

The Wunderlich family, with Michael Farris of the HSLDA.

Four children, ages 7 to 14, have been forcibly taken from their home by police armed with a battering ram, and their parents have been told they won’t see them again soon, all over the issue of homeschooling, according to a stunning new report from the Home School Legal Defense Association.

HSLDA, the world’s premiere advocate for homeschoolers, said the family of Dirk and Petra Wunderlich has battled for several years Germany’s World War II-era requirement that all children submit to the indoctrination programs in the nation’s public schools.

The shocking raid was made solely because the parents were providing their children’s education. HSLDA discovered the paperwork that authorized police officers and social workers to use force on the children contained no claims of mistreatment.

“The children were taken to unknown locations,” HSLDA said. “Officials ominously promised the parents that they would not be seeing their children anytime soon.”

The raid, which took place Thursday at 8 a.m. as the children were beginning their day’s classes, has been described by observers as “brutal and vicious.”

A team of 20 social workers, police and special agents stormed the family’s Darmstadt, Germany, home. HSLDA reported a Judge Koenig, who is assigned to the Darmstadt family court, signed an order authorizing the immediate seizure of the children by force.

“Citing the parents’ failure to cooperate ‘with the authorities to send the children to school,’ the judge also authorized the use of force ‘against the children’ … reasoning that such force might be required because the children had ‘adopted the parents’ opinions’ regarding homeschooling and that ‘no cooperation could be expected’ from either the parents or the children,” HSLDA said.

Dirk Wunderlich told the homeschool group: “I looked through a side window and saw many people, police and special agents, all armed. They told me they wanted to come in to speak with me. I tried to ask questions, but within seconds, three police officers brought a battering ram and were about to break the door in, so I opened it.”

Join the battle over Germany’s homeschooling ban.

His narration continued: “The police shoved me into a chair and wouldn’t let me even make a phone call at first. It was chaotic as they told me they had an order to take the children. At my slightest movement the agents would grab me, as if I were a terrorist. You would never expect anything like this to happen in our calm, peaceful village. It was like a scene out of a science fiction movie. Our neighbors and children have been traumatized by this invasion.”

Human rights violations

Michael Farris, HSLDA founder, said in a report the actions violated a number of established European precedents, including provisions of the European Convention of Human Rights.

“The right to homeschool is a human right,” he said, “and so is the right to freely move and to leave a country. Germany has grossly violated these rights of this family.

“This latest act of seizing these four beautiful innocent children is an outrageous act of a rogue nation.”

Farris said the U.S. Constitution is “not alone in upholding the right of parents to decide how to educate their children.”

“Germany is a party to numerous human rights treaties that recognize the right of parents to provide an education distinct from the public schools so that children can be educated according to the parents’ religious convictions,” he said.

“Germany has simply not met its obligations under these treaties or as a liberal democracy. HSLDA and I will do whatever we can to help this family regain custody of their children and ensure that they are safe from this persecution. This case demonstrates conclusively why the Romeike asylum case is so important. Families in Germany need a safe place where they can educate their children in peace.”

As WND reported, the Romeike case has been submitted to the U.S. Supreme Court. A judge several years ago granted asylum in the U.S. to the family, which fled Germany because their children were forced to go to public schools.

The Obama administration, unhappy with the outcome, appealed and obtained an order from a higher court that the family must return to Germany. The Obama administration has argued in court parents essentially have no right to determine how and what their children are taught, leaving the authority with the government.

Government custody

The German government already has confronted the Wunderlich family several times over homeschooling. Less than a year ago, a German court granted custody of the children to state youth officials.

However, government authorities at that time decided to leave the children in the family home because they were well-cared for.

WND reported the government told the family it had failed to meet the government’s demands for “integration.” The decision came from Judge Markus Malkmus, who ordered the children into the custody of the states’ “child protective agency,” called the Jugendamt.

The family earlier was subjected to an ordeal in France when police snatched the children from their home there, accusing them of “being alone.”

At the time, two French social workers and two police officers appeared without notice at the home of Dominique Chanal in St. Leonard, France, where Dirk and Angela Wunderlich and their children were living.

The family had fled Germany because of a series of fines imposed for homeschooling. The children were released a short time later. But Dirk Wunderlich was forced last year to return his family to Germany because he could not find work elsewhere.

Wunderlich told Mike Donnelly, HSLDA director for international affairs, that he and his wife were devastated.

“These are broken people. They said they felt like they were being ground into dust. They were shaken to their core and shocked by the event. But they also told me that they had followed their conscience and the dictates of their faith,” Donnelly said. “Although they don’t have much faith in the German state – they have a lot of faith in God. They are an inspiring and courageous family.

Donnelly said his question to the political leadership of Germany is: “How long will you permit these kinds of brutal acts to be perpetrated against German families?”

“Why is it so important to you to force people into your state schools? The echo of this act rings from a darker time in German history. When will leaders stand up and make changes so that brutality to children like the Wunderlichs no longer happens because of homeschooling? Isn’t there any German statesman willing to stand up for what is right anywhere in Germany?”

Dirk Wunderlich told HSLDA his 14-year-old daughter was forcibly taken out of the home.

“When I went outside, our neighbor was crying as she watched. I turned around to see my daughter being escorted as if she were a criminal by two big policemen. They weren’t being nice at all. When my wife tried to give my daughter a kiss and a hug goodbye, one of the special agents roughly elbowed her out of the way and said – ‘it’s too late for that.’”

After the children were taken, authorities “invited” the parents to a meeting with social workers. They were told they were not even being allowed an immediate court hearing on the status of the children.

Hitler youth

Germany has a long history of persecuting homeschooling families.

It was in 1937 when Adolf Hitler said: “The youth of today is ever the people of tomorrow. For this reason we have set before ourselves the task of inoculating our youth with the spirit of this community of the people at a very early age, at an age when human beings are still unperverted and therefore unspoiled. This Reich stands, and it is building itself up for the future, upon its youth. And this new Reich will give its youth to no one, but will itself take youth and give to youth its own education and its own upbringing.”

Just a few years ago, a German government spokesman, Wolfgang Drautz, emphasized the importance of socializing children through public schools.

His statement followed a response from the German government to another family that objected to police picking up their child and delivering him to a public school.

“The minister of education does not share your attitudes toward so-called homeschooling,” said a government letter. “You complain about the forced school escort of primary school children by the responsible local police officers. … In order to avoid this in future, the education authority is in conversation with the affected family in order to look for possibilities to bring the religious convictions of the family into line with the unalterable school attendance requirement.”

HSLDA previously has documented in the Konrad and Plett cases how the German government considers homeschooling to be child abuse, even though it is recognized as a right by the Universal Declaration on Human Rights, the European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms, the United Nations International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.

HSLDA has warned that the behavior of German authorities is a foreshadowing of what American parents should expect if the U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Child ever is ratified in the U.S. Its concerns are detailed at the website Parental Rights.

In nearby Sweden, WND also reported a case in which authorities snatched a 7-year-old child from an airplane as the parents were moving to India so they could homeschool.

Swedish courts have ordered Dominic Johansson to be permanently separated from his parents, Christer and Annie Johansson.

The interloper who would be king: Obama bypasses (again) congress, goes after guns

What part of the 2nd Amendment does Obama not understand? He doesn’t like our laws, he doesn’t like our culture, he doesn’t like America. But he does like vacations, playing golf, and living luxuriously on our dime!

WASHINGTON (AP) — Striving to take action where Congress would not, the Obama administration announced new steps Thursday on gun control, curbing the import of military surplus weapons and proposing to close a little-known loophole that lets felons and others circumvent background checks by registering guns to corporations.

Four months after a gun control drive collapsed spectacularly in the Senate, President Barack Obama added two more executive actions to a list of 23 steps the White House determined Obama could take on his own to reduce gun violence. With the political world focused on Mideast tensions and looming fiscal battles, the move signaled Obama's intent to show he hasn't lost sight of the cause he took up after 20 first graders and six adults were gunned down last year in an elementary school in Newtown, Conn.

Vice President Joe Biden, Obama's point-man on gun control after the Newtown tragedy thrust guns into the national spotlight, unveiled the new actions Thursday at the White House.

"It's simple, it's straightforward, it's common sense," Biden said in the Roosevelt Room.

One new policy will end a government practice that lets military weapons, sold or donated by the U.S. to allies, be reimported into the U.S. by private entities, where some may end up on the streets. The White House said the U.S. has approved 250,000 of those guns to be reimported since 2005; under the new policy, only museums and a few other entities like the government will be eligible to reimport military-grade firearms.

The Obama administration is also proposing a federal rule to stop those who would be ineligible to pass a background check from skirting the law by registering certain guns, like machine guns and short-barreled shotguns, to a corporation or trust. The new rule would require people associated with those entities, like beneficiaries and trustees, to undergo the same type of fingerprint-based background checks as individuals if they want to register those types of guns.

"It's a very artful dodge to get around people who are not capable, constitutionally or legally, of owning a weapon," Biden said.

The National Rifle Association dismissed the administration's moves as misdirected, arguing that background checks for corporations and a ban on reimporting outdated guns wouldn't keep criminals from getting weapons.

"The Obama administration has once again completely missed the mark when it comes to stopping violent crime," said NRA spokesman Andrew Arulanandam. "This administration should get serious about prosecuting violent criminals who misuse guns and stop focusing its efforts on law-abiding gun owners."

Peak oil like global warming is a hoax, another weapon in the destruction of freedom

Gas prices would be less than a dollar a gallon if it weren’t for the globalists seeking to rule the world through a one world government.

They can’t have their one world government with a free America so one of their tools of destruction is economic collapse. That’s the reason for the lies about ‘peak oil’ and ‘global warming’.

The global warming lie has led higher prices by regulations that stifle the industry. It’s virtually impossible to get approval to build new oil refineries or open new wells creating an artificial shortage and the myth of peak oil jacks the prices up in the markets because it’s speculation driven.

THE PEAK OIL MYTH

By Dr. Stanley Monteith
November 11, 2005
NewsWithViews.com

The price of oil and natural gas was increasing before Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast, destroyed almost a fourth of our oil production, raised the price of gasoline to over $3.00 a gallon, and the price of oil to $70.00 a barrel. Will the rising cost of oil devastate our economy?GasPrices

The web site, hubbertpeak.com warns:

"Oil will become more expensive and less available. This will be painful in the industrialized countries which have become totally dependent upon oil, and in the less developed countries where oil use is extremely sensitive to price escalation."[1]

Dr. M. King Hubbert worked at the Shell Oil research laboratory in Houston, analyzed the oil reserves of the major oil companies, and issued a 1956 report that predicted U.S. oil production would peak between 1965 and 1970. Production peaked in 1971, and has declined since then.[2] U.S. natural gas production peaked the same year. How did Dr. Hubbert know what was going to happen? Was he clairvoyant? Was he lucky? Did he have access to "secret information”?

Dr. Kenneth Deffeyes worked at the Shell Oil research laboratory in Houston, taught at the University of Minnesota and Oregon State University, joined the staff at Princeton in 1967, and worked there until he retired. Dr. Deffeyes' book, Beyond Oil: The View From Hubbert's Peak, he predicted world oil production will peak between 2004 and 2008. During a recent interview, Dr. Deffeyes predicted world production would peak in late 2005 or early 2006.[3] If Dr. Deffeyes is correct, what will happen to our economy? What will happen to the world economy?

en.wikipedia.org states:

"Oil depletion is the inescapable result of extracting and consuming oil faster than it can be replaced. Because the oil resource is not infinite, and its current replacement rate is quite slow relative to use, it will at some point be depleted."[4]

Is oil a finite resource? Will oil production peak in late 2005 or 2006? Many geologists, media pundits, oil company executives, and the people they employ claim the world is running out of oil. Web site www.hubbertpeak.com states:

"As humanity comes to terms with the inevitability of a world beyond oil, the remaining oil supply will be exploited in three ways:

1. To maintain the global economy;
2. To create a new solar economy which will not depend upon oil;
3. To fight over the oil that remains."[5]

Time-Global-Warming-Global-Freezing-300x199Most of the electricity that produces our products and heats our homes is generated by burning coal (which pollutes the environment) and natural gas, but Lee Raymond, CEO of Exxon Mobil, claims the U.S. is running out of natural gas. Reuters News Service reports:

"After weak prices in the 1990s due to oversupply, natural gas production in North America will probably continue to decline unless there is another big discovery, Exxon Mobil Corp.'s chief executive said on Tuesday.

'Gas production has peaked in North America,' Chief Executive Lee Raymond told reporters at the Reuters Energy Summit.

Asked whether production would continue to decline even if two huge arctic gas pipeline projects were built, Raymond said, 'I think that's a fair statement, unless there's some huge find that nobody has any idea where it would be.'"[6]

healthandenergy.com confirms Mr. Raymond’s statement:

"Natural gas supply in North America is in decline, and no early simple solution is anticipated. These are the conclusions expressed in a study, 'North American Natural Gas: Data Show Supply Problems' just published in the journal Natural Resources Research. . . . Natural gas production in the United States peaked in 1971. Since then, Canada has increasing(ly) supplied the United States to 15 percent of its needs in 2002. However, in 2002, Canadian gas production declined. That trend continued in 2003. Currently 80% of all wells are drilled for gas, not oil, but in spite of this increased effort the production decline has not been reversed. The amount of gas found per foot drilled has also declined nearly 50 percent in the past decade indicating that the easy-to-find large fields have already been discovered. New gas wells are showing decline rates as high as 80 percent the first year."[7]

What will happen when our natural gas is exhausted? Can we generate energy from the wind and the sun? Wind and solar energy are prohibitively expensive, and take years to develop. Are there other alternatives? Can we maintain our standard of living by burning oil? The world produces 80 million barrels of oil a day. The United States has 5% of the world's population and consumes 20.52 million barrels of oil a day. Europe has 7% of the world's population and consumes 16.45 million barrels of oil a day. China has 22-23% of the world's population and consumes 5 million barrels of oil a day, but China, India, and the other developing nations need more oil.[8]

If oil peaks in late 2005 or 2006, how will the U.S., Europe, China, and the other developing nations deal with their growing need for oil? Will OPEC increase the oil price to $100 a barrel? To $200 a barrel? What will happen to our economy? What will happen to the world economy?

China is acquiring oil fields in Saudi Arabia and Africa, purchasing oil in South America, Canada, Russia, and the Middle East, and developing the oil sand deposits in Alberta, Canada. The Los Angeles Times reports:

"Three of China's state-owned oil companies have . . . poured huge investments into the oil sands, including a 40% stake in a $3.6-billion project that will be able to send oil via a new pipeline to Canada's west coast for shipment to China and elsewhere. . . . Scenes like this are being repeated around the world. . . . Chinese crews are building roads in Africa in exchange for the right to extract oil from remote regions. Viewers in Saudi Arabia, a nation that U.S. oil firms once had to themselves now watch Chinese programs on satellite TV as China drills into Saudi sands. China is also taking advantage of tensions between the Bush administration and Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez to wrest oil from one of the largest U.S. suppliers. To secure deals worth tens of billions of dollars, Beijing is cozying up to regimes in nations, including Iran. . . . And it is flexing its military muscle to lay claim to contested fields in East Asia."[9]

Is the world really running out of oil and natural gas, or is the oil industry running the same scam they ran in 1973 when TV stations broadcast advertisements that depicted dinosaurs lumbering through a forest as a somber voice proclaimed:

"There are no more dinosaurs . . . the world is running out of oil."

The advertisement suggested oil comes from decayed dinosaurs and organic matter, but that isn't true. Honest geologists admit they don't know where oil comes from, but Professor Thomas Gold, an astrophysicist at Cornell University, theorized that oil comes from methane and contains heat-loving bacteria that inhabit the heated biosphere beneath the surface of the earth. en.wikipedia/org/wiki/Thomas_Gold explains Thomas Gold's theory:

"Thomas Gold achieved fame for his 1992 paper, 'The Deep Hot Biosphere' in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, which presented a controversial view of the origin of coal, oil, and gas deposits, a theory of an abiogenic petroleum origin. The theory suggests coal and crude oil deposits have their origin in natural gas flows which feed bacteria living at extreme depths under the surface of the Earth; in other words, oil and coal are produced through tectonic forces, rather than from the decomposition of fossils. . . . Recent discoveries have shown that bacteria live at depths far greater than previously believed. Whilst this does not prove Gold's theory, it certainly lends support to its arguments."[10]

If Thomas Gold's theory is correct, oil is constantly replenished, and there is a perpetual supply of oil and natural gas. Has anyone accessed the subterranean regions of the earth to evaluate Professor Gold's idea? The Russians have. That's why Russia is the second largest oil producer in the world today.

freeenergynews.com reports:

"Russians started drilling Kola SG-3, an exploration well which finally reached a staggering world record depth of 40,230 feet. Since then, Russian oil majors including Yukos have quietly drilled more than 310 successful super-deep oil wells, and put them into production. Last year Russia overtook Saudi Arabia as the world's biggest single oil producer, and is now set to completely dominate global oil production and sales for the next century."[11]

If that is true, why haven't we heard about the discovery? Because the oil companies, the media moguls, and the Occult Hierarchy that controls them don't want the public to know the energy shortage is contrived. Saudi Arabia, which funds international terrorism, and the major oil companies have made billions of dollars since they raised the price of oil. They will make trillions of dollars, destroy our economy, and enslave our people if we don't expose the deception. [12]

Dr. M. King Hubbert predicted U.S. oil production would peak between 1965 and 1970. It peaked in 1971. How did Dr. Hubbert know that would happen? I suspect he knew the oil cartel was going to finance the environmental movement, get laws enacted that would restrict oil and natural gas production, and block further development of nuclear power in the United States. Gary Benoit's article in the March 27, 2000, issue of The New American notes:

"In a letter published in the February 12th (2000-ed) New York Times, Senator Frank Murkowski (R-AK), chairman of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, identified 'the main problem,' not as a lack of domestic resources, but as 'the administration's efforts to send oil development out of this country through taxes, environmental decisions and bad policy.' After noting that more than half our oil comes from foreign countries and that our wells are being shut down (by government decree-ed) Murkowski candidly stated: 'We've allowed that to happen, and we look a little foolish complaining of the consequences.'"[13]

The article continued: "The United States is awash in energy resources and our dangerous dependence on foreign sources could be ended simply by allowing the development of those resources in a free enterprise environment. . . . Not only has the United States not depleted its proved reserves of oil, but those reserves actually increased over a period of decades, the result of both new discoveries and changing economic and technological conditions.

According to statistics supplied by the Energy Information Administration (EIA), America's proved oil reserves grew from 24.6 billion barrels in 1949 to 38.1 billion barrels in 1971 before declining to 21.0 billion barrels in 1998. Natural gas proved reserves have followed a similar pattern, although they peaked earlier and are somewhat larger than our oil reserves. . . . EIA-supplied statistics show that the U.S. had 152 billion barrels of 'technically recoverable oil' (including proved reserves) in 1998, enough to last another 77 years at the current rate of production. As for natural gas, there is enough to last 71 years at the current production level."[14]

The oil and natural gas reserves cited in the EIA report are only a fraction of the reserves that have been discovered. Lindsey Williams was the chaplain for the construction crews that built the trans-Alaska pipe line, and was at Prudhoe Bay when Atlantic Richfield tapped into one of the largest oil fields in the world, but the field wasn't developed. I researched that story, and found a BP executive who confirmed the information. Radio Liberty carries Lindsey Williams' book, The Energy Non-Crisis.[15]

I will cover more of this incredible story in my next article “Peak Oil II.”

News Media Maleficence And The Fall Of The American Dream

Why do we not get the real news from the ‘news media’? Read this article from www.radioliberty.com

THE SECRET CABAL

PART 1

By Dr. Stanley Monteith
February 11, 2011
NewsWithViews.com

David Rockefeller, the founder and honorary Chairman of the Trilateral Commission, has written,

"Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as 'internationalists' and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure - one world, if you will. If that's the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it." (italics and underline added - ed)[1]DavidRockefellerGlobalists

Most people know something is seriously wrong in our country, but they don't understand the cause of the problem or what can be done to remedy the situation. Why are there 20-25 million unemployed people in the United States? Why isn't the federal government enforcing our immigration laws? Why does the federal government give tax incentives to manufacturers who offshore their production and outsource their jobs? Who is responsible for the economic recession that is crippling our nation?

I will address those questions in this and several subsequent Radio Liberty articles, here at News With Views. When you read them you will discover:

I. The U.S. is controlled by a secret cabal.
II. The cabal is transferring U.S. jobs, factories, and wealth to other nations.
III. The cabal is implementing provision 10A of the Earth Charter.

If the U.S. is controlled by a secret cabal, why hasn't someone told the American people? Members of the covert organizations control most of the major media outlets in the U.S., and if a commentator or writer mentions the secret cabal, or permits someone to discuss it, the commentator or writer will lose their job, be blacklisted, and never work in the media again.

Many years ago a well-known San Francisco radio talk-show host told me he couldn't say what he believed on his program because if he told the truth he would be fired.

I recently had lunch with the editor of a major newspaper, and he told me he can't write what he believes, he must write what he is told to write.

Gary Webb, a Pulitzer prize winning investigative reporter who worked for the San Jose Mercury News, wrote a series of articles about the CIA's involvement in the drug industry. The San Jose Mercury News verified the information and published the articles, but several weeks later someone contacted the editor of the newspaper and told him to fire Gary Webb, and blacklist him. As a result, Gary Webb couldn't get a job at any newspaper in the United States, and several years later he committed suicide by shooting himself in the head twice to be certain he was dead.[2]

That situation has existed in the United States for over a hundred years.

John Swinton was the editorial page editor of the New York Times from 1860-1870. When he addressed a group of journalists at the Twilight Club in New York City on April 12, 1883, he stated:

"There is no such thing in America as an independent press, unless it is in the country towns. You know it and I know it. There is not one of you who dare to write his honest opinions, and if you did you know beforehand they would never appear in print. I am paid $150 a week for keeping my honest opinions out of the paper I am connected with. Others of you are paid similar salaries for doing similar things. If I should permit honest opinions to be printed in one issue of my paper, like Othello, before twenty-four hours, my occupation would be gone. . . . We are intellectual prostitutes."[3]

Very little has changed since that time except for the fact that members of the secret cabal control more media outlets, and they have developed very sophisticated methods of controlling the reality of the American people.

On rare occasions a courageous member of the media has tried to expose the influence of the secret cabal. Richard Harwood worked for The Washington Post for 22 years, and during those years he wrote what he was told to write, but after Richard Harwood retired, he wrote an article titled "Ruling Class Journalists" that exposed the totalitarian influence of the Council on Foreign Relations. Why is that important? It's important because the CFR is one of the major "front organizations " for the secret cabal that controls our nation.

On October 30, 1993, Richard Harwood wrote:

"The president is a member. So is his secretary of state, the deputy secretary of state, all five of the undersecretaries, several of the assistant secretaries and the department's legal adviser. The president's national security adviser and his deputy are members. The director of Central Intelligence (like all previous directors) and the chairman of the Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board are members. The secretary of defense, three undersecretaries and at least four assistant secretaries are members. The secretaries of the department of housing and urban development, interior, health and human services, and the chief White House public relations man, David Gergen, are members along with the speaker of the House and the majority leader of the Senate."[4]

If Richard Harwood's information is correct, why don't the American people realize the CFR controls the American government? Richard Harwood's article was published on a back page of The Washington Post, the article wasn't mentioned on radio or television, and the article was never quoted by other newspapers. A similar fate has befallen every effort to expose the existence of the secret cabal.

If you would like to verify the fact that most of the major media outlets are owned by "front organizations" affiliated with the secret cabal; i.e. the Trilateral Commission, the CFR, and the Bilderbergs, you should read Professor Ben Bagdikian's book, "The New Media Monopoly" because it identifies the five (or six) international corporations that control 90% of the major media outlets in the United States, [5] and you should also read "The Membership List of the Brotherhood of Darkness," compiled by Radio Liberty, or Robert Gaylon Ross's book, "Who's Who of the Elite." [6] The major corporations are:

Times Warner (AOL) (Trilateral Commission)
Bertelsmann (Trilateral Commission)
Viacom (CBS) (Council on Foreign Relations) (CFR)
Disney (ABC) (CFR)
GE-Comcast (NBC) (CFR)
Fox News: Ruppert Murdoch (CFR)

What is the Trilateral Commission? What is the CFR? Who controls the organizations? Where did they come from? What is their goal? We’ll discuss the answers to these questions in future articles. For part two click below.

SEGREGATION: NATION'S ONLY BLACK SENATOR NOT INVITED TO MLK EVENT

Sen. Tim Scott wasn’t invited to event commemorating MLK march on Washington

By JOEL GEHRKE | AUGUST 28, 2013 AT 3:35 PM

Photo - Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., did not get an invite to the commemoration of the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King's march on Washington.  (AP File) Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., did not even get an invite to the commemoration of the 50th anniversary of MLK speech.

Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., the only black person serving in the United States Senate, wasn’t invited to the event commemorating the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King’s march on Washington, though a host of Democratic luminaries spoke on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial.

“Senator Scott was not invited to speak at the event,” Greg Blair, a spokesman for the South Carolina lawmaker, said in a statement to the Washington Examiner. “The senator believes today is a day to remember the extraordinary accomplishments and sacrifices of Dr. King, Congressman John Lewis, and an entire generation of black leaders. Today’s anniversary should simply serve as an opportunity to reflect upon how their actions moved our country forward in a remarkable way.”

The event organizers didn’t completely exclude Republicans from the event — former President George W. Bush received an invitation, but he couldn’t attend as he is recovering from surgery — the slate of speakers was filled with names such as former President Clinton, Gov. Martin O’Malley, D-Md., Oprah Winfrey, Jamie Foxx and others.

President Obama was the keynote speaker of the event, of course. In honoring the achievements of King and other civil rights leaders, wouldn’t it have made sense to have the first black president joined by the first black senator from South Carolina, which was a Jim Crow state when the original March on Washington took place?

The Washington Examiner contacted MLK Dream 50 to ask why Scott wasn’t invited, but didn’t hear back in time for publication.

Is it weird that Queen Elizabeth’s Nurse is Wearing a Masonic Belt?

Evidently since the ‘Royals obsessed media’ failed to mention it in their extensive coverage of everything else concerning her sighting that day.

Why is Queen Elizabeth’s Nurse Wearing a Masonic Belt?

Mar 5th, 2013

Every time a story involves the British Royal family, mass media are quick to document every single detail of it. When Queen Elizabeth left King Edward VII Hospital on March 3rd, news sources covered the event extensively, even describing her outfit, her pearl necklace and her brooch.

There is however one significant detail mass media completely ignored. Check out the nurse’s belt buckle.

This massive buckle features the Masonic compass and square and a pentagram - another important Masonic symbol used in ceremonial magick.

According to the Library and Museum of Freemasonry, this belt buckle was given to nurses who trained at the Royal Masonic Hospital, a private hospital for Freemasons and other fee-paying patients. The Royal Masonic Hospital stopped existing in 1992 but its belt buckles are apparently still worn by “elite” nurses such as the one who treated the queen.

It is interesting to see how symbols of power appear in places of power.

Handshake with the Queen. A privilege not allowed to commoners.

Remember that King Edward VII Hospital is where Kate got hospitalized due to a pregnancy-related illness, which led to the suicide of one of the nurses.

The immigration ‘weapon’ then and now

Is the illegal immigration issue one of conscience and morality? Is the push to legalize these illegals based on care for their condition in life?

Not only is illegal immigration a matter of national security but you will see that even legal immigration was and is a matter of national security.

Immigration has been in the past and is again today being used as a weapon against the government of the United States as founded by our forefathers.

If legal immigration was used as a weapon 150 years ago against our nation how much more should we reject the present move to accept illegal immigrants?

Why are race relation worse under Obama? Because he wants them to be! His puppeteers, the Jesuits, the Freemasons, and the Illuminati (the unholy trinity),  put him in office to destroy the Protestant United States of America. One of the tools in their arsenal is ‘racial division’!

These are headlines from the Drudge Report just from today, it’s not going to get better under Obama, he won’t let it!

By the way, all the talk about a ‘new world order’ is a ruse to hide the real goal. The real goal is the ‘old world order’ of Rome’s Papal Caesar. What we are seeing today is the Council of Trent being played out by the pope’s Jesuit assassins!

MYSTERY: Debt Frozen for 100 Days at $16,699,396,000,000

Even if we weren’t spending more than we are taking in the debt should rise based on the interest accruing on the debt. What’s the interest on 16.6 trillion dollars for 100 days?

There is some ‘funny money’ stuff going on with the US economy. The FED is pumping 85 billion dollars a month into the stock market; they aren't giving the money to us even though they are printing it out of thin air. Why isn’t the debt going up just based on that?

The FED is doing it because as part of the government they are trying to pull us out of our economic woes, No, they are not part of the government. The FED is a conglomerate of private banks, they are not going to lose money trying to save the US economy.

The FED in fact wasn’t created with just the intention to make money, they were created to destroy the free United States of America not help it. Read ‘The Creature From Jekyll Island’ that details the diabolical creation of the FED in 1913. It’s a creation of the unholy trinity…the Jesuits, the Freemasons, and the Illuminati…


100 Days: Treasury Has Kept Debt Frozen at $16,699,396,000,000


By Terence P. Jeffrey

(CNSNews.com) - The Treasury Department’s latest official daily accounting of the U.S. government’s receipts, expenditures and borrowings--released this afternoon at 4:00 p.m.--indicates that the legally limited debt of the federal government has now been exactly $16,699,396,000,000 for 100 straight days.

The Daily Treasury Statement released today showed the status of the government’s accounts as of the close of business on Friday, Aug. 23. Because the Treasury does no business over the weekend, the federal government’s debt did not change on Saturday or Sunday.

The statement for Aug. 23 said the federal debt subject to the legal limit set by Congress was $16,699,396,000,000—or $25 million below the current limit of $16,699,421,000,000. Every Daily Treasury Statement since May 17 has also shown the legally limited debt at $16,699,396,000,000, or $25 million below the limit.

During the 100-day period from Friday, May 17 to Sunday, Aug. 25, according to the Treasury, the legally limited debt of the federal government did not change.

Christian woman faces hanging in Pakistan for the crime of ‘blasphemy’

The cultural rot experienced in the West is the result of a war against Christianity. There is a plan behind the flooding our the airwaves with vulgarity in music and movies; to destroy the remnants of the Puritan heritage of America.

Laws are being crafted to force Christians to violate their consciences, professing Christians are more and more treated as second class citizens and have the least amount of rights of any group. So far, Christians have been subjected to soft persecution, that’s bad but not as bad as it is going to get.

What is happening in Pakistan, North Africa, and other Middle Eastern nations is coming to America and the rest of the Western world. Scores of Christians are being killed because of their faith in multiple nations around the world, but that doesn’t make the ‘nightly news’.

This is an article from the NYPost as told by Asia Bibi as she waits in prison for the hangman’s noose for ‘insulting the prophet’…

Sentenced to death for a sip of water

As her religion faces persecution across the Middle East, a Christian woman explains why she faces hanging in Pakistan for the crime of ‘blasphemy’

  • By ASIA BIBI

More and more people join the crowd as they push me towards the home of the village headman. I recognize the house — it’s the only one that has a garden with grass growing in it. They throw me to the ground. The village imam speaks to me: “I’ve been told you’ve insulted our Prophet. You know what happens to anyone who attacks the holy Prophet Mohammed. You can redeem yourself only by conversion or death.”

“I haven’t done anything! Please! I beg you! I’ve done nothing wrong!”

The qari with his long, well-combed beard, turns to Musarat and the three women who were there on the day of the falsa harvest.

“Did she speak ill of Muslims and our holy Prophet Mohammed?”

“Yes, she insulted them,” replies Musarat, and the others join in:

“It’s true, she insulted our religion.”

“If you don’t want to die,” says the young mullah, “you must convert to Islam. Are you willing to redeem yourself by becoming a good Muslim?”

Sobbing, I reply:

“No, I don’t want to change my religion. But please believe me, I didn’t do what these women say, I didn’t insult your religion. Please have mercy on me.”

I put my hands together and plead with him. But he is unmoved.

“You’re lying! Everyone says you committed this blasphemy and that’s proof enough. Christians must comply with the law of Pakistan, which forbids any derogatory remarks about the holy Prophet. Since you won’t convert and the Prophet cannot defend himself, we shall avenge him.”

He turns on his heel and the angry crowd falls on me. I’m beaten with sticks and spat at. I think I’m going to die. Then they ask me again:

“Will you convert to a religion worthy of the name?”

“No, please, I’m a Christian, but I beg you . . . ”

And they go on beating me with the same fury as before.

I was barely conscious and could hardly feel the pain of my wounds by the time the police arrived. Two policemen threw me in their van, to cheers from the angry crowd, and a few minutes later I was in the police station in Nankana Sahib.

In the police chief’s office they sat me down on a bench. I asked for water and compresses for the wounds on my legs, which were streaming with blood. A young policeman threw me an old dishcloth and spat out at me:

“Here, and don’t get it everywhere.”

One of my arms really hurt and I thought it might be broken. Just then I saw the qaricome in with Musarat and her gang. With me sitting there they told the police chief that I insulted the Prophet Mohammed. From outside the police station I could hear shouts:

“Death to the Christian!”

After writing up the report the policeman turned and called to me in a nasty voice:

“So what have you got to say for yourself?”

“I’m innocent! It’s not true! I didn’t insult the Prophet!”

Immediately after I’d protested my innocence I was manhandled into the police van and driven away. During the journey I passed out from pain and only came back to myself as we were arriving at Sheikhupura prison, where I was thrown into a cell.

Since that day I haven’t left prison.

DoD Training Manual: ‘Extremist’ Founding Fathers ‘Would Not Be Welcome In Today’s Military’

Manual lists people concerned with “individual liberties, states’ rights, and how to make the world a better place” as potential extremists

Adan Salazar Infowars.com August 24, 2013

Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch recently obtained a Department of Defense training manual which lists people who embrace “individual liberties” and honor “states’ rights,” among other characteristics, as potential “extremists” who are likely to be members of “hate groups.”

dodmanMarked “for training purposes only,” the documents, obtained Thursday through a Freedom of Information Act request submitted in April, include PowerPoint slides and lesson plans, among which is a January 2013 Air Force “student guide” distributed by the Defense Equal Opportunity Management Institute simply entitled “Extremism.”

Judicial Watch’s FOIA request asked for “Any and all records concerning, regarding, or related to the preparation and presentation of training materials on hate groups or hate crimes distributed or used by the Air Force.”

As the group notes, “The document defines extremists as ‘a person who advocates the use of force or violence; advocates supremacist causes based on race, ethnicity, religion, gender, or national origin; or otherwise engages to illegally deprive individuals or groups of their civil rights.’”

The manual goes on to bar military personnel from “active participation” in such extremist organization activities as “publicly demonstrating,” “rallying,” “fundraising” and “organizing,” basically denying active-duty military from exercising the rights they so ardently fight to defend.

It begins its introduction of a section titled, “Extremist ideologies,” by describing the American colonists who sought independence from British rule as a historical example of extremism.

“In U.S. history, there are many examples of extremist ideologies and movements. The colonists who sought to free themselves from British rule and the Confederate states who sought to secede from the Northern states are just two examples,” according to the training guide.

In a section drawing inspiration from a 1992 book titled “Nazis, Communists, Klansmen, and Others on the Fringe: Political Extremism in America,” the manual also lists “Doomsday thinking” under “traits or behaviors that tend to represent the extremist style.”

Extremists often predict dire or catastrophic consequences from a situation or from a failure to follow a specific course, and they tend to exhibit a kind of crisis-mindedness. It can be a Communist takeover, a Nazi revival, nuclear war, earthquakes, floods, or the wrath of God. Whatever it is, it is just around the corner unless we follow their program and listen to their special insight and wisdom, to which only the truly enlightened have access. For extremists, any setback or defeat is the beginning of the end.

“Nowadays,” the manual explains, “instead of dressing in sheets or publicly espousing hate messages, many extremists will talk of individual liberties, states’ rights, and how to make the world a better place.”

Judicial Watch also acknowledges the Southern Poverty Law Center “is listed as a resource for information on hate groups and referenced several times throughout the guide,” even though the group itself was directly responsible for a “hate crime” perpetrated on the Family Research Council after it was listed on the SPLC’s “hate map.”

Infowars readers will find much of the training guide’s contents unsurprising as they merely reinforce what we have exhaustively documented in the past.

In 2009, Infowars obtained the “law enforcement sensitive” contents of a Missouri Information Analysis Center (MIAC) report entitled “The Modern Militia Movement” which listed supporters of presidential candidates Ron Paul, Chuck Baldwin, and Bob Barr as potential “militia” influenced terrorists.

Also, in July 2012 Infowars blew the lid on a Department of Homeland Security-funded study, produced by the National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism at the University of Maryland, that characterized Americans who are “suspicious of centralized federal authority,” and “reverent of individual liberty” as “extreme right-wing” terrorists.

Indeed, the latest report echoes scenes from Alex Jones’ prescient documentary 9/11: The Road to Tyranny, made over a decade ago, which covered the fact that FEMA and other government bureaus have for years been training law enforcement agencies to regard people who espouse conservative ideologies, such as those represented by the Founding Fathers, as terrorists.

It can no longer be denied that military and local law enforcement crosshairs have gradually been realigned from targeting phantom terrorists overseas to targeting domestic “extremists,” a broad, all-encompassing term that accommodates anyone generally challenging or questioning the status quo.

As Judicial Watch notes, although the documents were obtained through the Air Force, the fact that they originated in a DOD office means they have likely been distributed throughout the government’s various agencies.

Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton concluded that the documents fall in line with the Obama administration’s “nasty habit of equating basic conservative values with terrorism,” and that the language closely “echoes the IRS targeting language of conservative and Tea Party investigations.” “And now… its Defense Department suggests that the Founding Fathers, and many conservative Americans, would not be welcome in today’s military… After reviewing this document, one can’t help but worry for the future and morale of our nation’s armed forces.”

Lifetime Alimony woes lands ex-spouse in jail

Sometimes the laws stinks. Yes you reap what you sow, and a man who doesn’t take care of his family is worse than an infidel, but the law surely must be tempered with common sense.

How can a man pay his ex more than he makes? Or a woman for that matter…

And where did this idea that a man should expect alimony from his wife come from? Now that’s just unmanly!

Jail Becomes Home for Husband Stuck With Lifetime Alimony

By Sophia Pearson - Aug 26, 2013 12:01 AM ET

Ari Schochet has grown so accustomed to being sent to jail for missing alimony payments that he goes into a routine.

Before his family-court hearing, Schochet, 41, sticks on a nicotine patch to cope with jailhouse smoking bans, sends an “Ari Off the Grid” e-mail to friends and family, and scrawls key phone numbers in permanent ink on his forearm.

Former Citadel Investment Portfolio Manager Ari Schochet

The former Citadel Investment Group Inc. portfolio manager, who once earned $1 million a year, has been jailed for missing court-ordered payments at least eight times in the past two years as he coped with the end of his 17-year marriage.

The reason he ran afoul of the law was simple. He was out of work for most of that time, a victim of a weak economy, and he ran through his savings trying to pay his wife alimony and child support that totaled almost $100,000 a year.

“It’s a circle of hell there’s just no way out of,” Schochet said. “I paid it as long as I could.”

Schochet and ex-spouses in similar changed circumstances say New Jersey’s law unfairly imposes lifetime alimony on them. If they fail to make payments, like the $78,000 a year Schochet owes his ex-wife in alimony, they can be jailed for contempt of court regardless of whether they have a job or resources.

Relief may be on the way. In states such as New Jersey, Connecticut and Florida where divorce laws are based on century-old notions of what an ex-spouse deserves, laws are being proposed to limit alimony in recognition of wives’ earning power and the changed economic circumstances husbands can face.

Massachusetts’s Law

The American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers in 2007 recommended restricting alimony amounts and duration. The proposal became the basis for Massachusetts’s alimony reform laws in 2011. Those statutes eliminated permanent alimony and gave judges guidelines for calculating amounts.

Three states have enacted laws abolishing permanent alimony with caveats allowing discretion in exceptional cases, according to Laura W. Morgan, an attorney and owner of Family Law Consulting in Charlottesville, Virginia. Lawmakers in at least 10 other states, including New Jersey, are being prompted by advocates to consider more restrictive legislation, said Morgan, who is writing an alimony handbook to be published by the American Bar Association.

New York lawmakers are considering a bill that would create an alimony formula that would require that only spouses with much higher incomes than their ex-partners pay support.

Connecticut’s Law

Connecticut Governor Dannel P. Malloy in June signed legislation revising the state’s alimony statutes to add education and earning capacity to a list of factors to be considered. The changes, which take effect Oct. 1, direct judges to specify the basis for any award of permanent alimony. The law also calls for lawmakers to study the fairness and adequacy of statutes governing alimony awards and make recommendations by February.

Florida’s legislature passed an alimony overhaul that would have eliminated permanent support. Governor Rick Scott, a Republican, vetoed the bill in May, citing its provision to allow changes to existing awards.

Following a state commission’s recommendation in 1995, New Jersey limited the duration of alimony after short-lived marriages while leaving intact permanent alimony and judicial discretion.

The first of two proposals before New Jersey lawmakers would allow modification of alimony due to changed circumstances such as a payer’s unemployment or disability. The bill, sponsored by Assemblyman Sean Kean, a Wall Township Republican, would keep permanent alimony. That bill and an identical one in the Senate have passed the judiciary committees.

Far-Reaching

A more far-reaching proposal, sponsored by six Assembly members including Kean and Charles Mainor, a Democrat from Jersey City, would abolish permanent alimony. Identical legislation in the Senate is sponsored by Sandra Cunningham, also a Jersey City Democrat.

The Mainor-Kean bill is modeled on the Massachusetts law, which was supported by women’s groups and the state bar association. It would base alimony on the length of the marriage and income and allow ex-spouses to stop payments when they retire.

“You have a moral and legal obligation to provide for your child until they’re 18,” Mainor said in an interview. “You don’t have that same obligation to your former spouse for the rest of your life.”

Reform Group

The Mainor-Kean bill is backed by New Jersey Alimony Reform, an advocacy group headed byTom Leustek, a divorced Rutgers University plant-science professor from Rahway who pays his former wife alimony based on a private settlement to avoid litigation.

Mainor’s bill would leave in place three types of alimony: rehabilitative, reimbursement and limited-duration.

Rehabilitative alimony is to help an ex-spouse become self-supporting. It would generally be limited to five years barring “unforeseen events.” Reimbursement alimony can be ordered if one spouse supported the other’s advanced education expecting to share the “fruits of the earning capacity” it created.

Limited-duration alimony would be awarded for no longer than half the length of a marriage of five years or less, with higher percentages for those approaching 10, 15 or 20 years. For marriages of 20 years or more, payments could last indefinitely.

Alimony would end if the receiving ex-spouse remarried or entered a new civil union, as permanent alimony does now. It would end when the paying spouse reached retirement age, whether he or she retired. Judges could make exceptions to the rules “in the interests of justice,” based on evidentiary findings.

Circumstances Differ

The difficulty with strict criteria for alimony amounts is that family circumstances differ, Bonnie Frost, a former chairwoman of the New Jersey Bar Association’s family law division, said in an interview.

About 22,000 former spouses receive alimony under court supervision in New Jersey, with child support also going to about 60 percent of them. An unknown number receive maintenance under private settlements that couples reach before going to family court.

Persuading a judge to change amounts is difficult and expensive, Leustek said. The average fee for a lawyer to start the process is about $10,000, he said.

Mainor’s bill seeks to rein in judges by requiring them to justify their refusals to make modifications in writing.

Judges are following the law, not deciding cases “based on a public discussion about reform,” said Winnie Comfort, a spokeswoman for New Jersey courts.

Legal Origins

Alimony laws in most states originated when women typically stayed at home and depended on their husbands for financial support. If a husband left, the wife was entitled to lifelong support to avoid starvation, said Morgan, the family law attorney in Charlottesville. In the 1950s alimony was seen as necessary to a woman’s survival.

Women now make up almost half the labor force, 47 percent compared with 30 percent in 1950, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics says. Dual-income couples accounted for 59 percent, of married households with children under 18 in 2011, according to the bureau. About a third of women earned more than their husbands in 2011, compared with 18 percent in 1987.

“But there is still a glass ceiling, and women are still earning just 70 cents on the dollar” earned by men, Morgan said.

She called the current push for change “very male-driven.”

“As men retire, they don’t want to keep paying alimony,” she said. “For every horror story that you can come up with about a support obligor, I can come up with 10 for an obligee who can’t make ends meet because her post-divorce standard of living has so drastically dropped.”

Women’s Stories

Women paying alimony have horror stories too. Alisa Whiting, 50, who helped form New Jersey Women for Alimony Reform last year, worked in the mortgage industry for 25 years earning about $160,000 with bonus in 2004, when she was a vice president at JPMorgan Chase & Co. (JPM), she said.

Whiting’s ex-husband was self-employed with two businesses and made more than she did for most of their 20-year marriage, she said.

When he stopped working after she filed for divorce in 2008, she was ordered to pay $20,000 a year in alimony until her youngest son is out of college and $25,000 a year afterward.

Whiting lost her job that year and went to work for a software company in Woodbridge, New Jersey, earning $52,000 a year responding to requests for proposals. Her hours were cut July 1 to two days a week. She takes home about $800 a month, including unemployment payments, she said.

Own Counsel

She plans to represent herself in court in a request for an alimony modification.

“There are no words to describe the despair that I feel,” Whiting said. “I’m tired. It’s infuriating. Permanent alimony is an outdated concept. It’s based on a salary that I don’t have any hope of ever earning again.”

Support-enforcement hearings in Bergen County have been held in the county jail in Hackensack since Hurricane Sandy damaged the courthouse.

Accused scofflaws store their belongings in lockers in a central lobby before being sent through electronic metal detectors and corralled in holding cells that flank a fluorescent-lit multipurpose room.

Judge Lisa Firko, like other family-law judges, conducts hearings from a makeshift bench while jail employees pass documents between a court-appointed attorney and probation staff.

Schochet, the ex-Citadel manager with the nicotine patch, parks in a dirt lot across the street when he’s required to make an appearance at Firko’s court.

Avoided Jail

Since April, he has managed to leave the jail following each appearance after Firko acknowledged his efforts to secure a well-paying job. Schochet now works part-time as an entry-level stock transfer agent, a job that leaves him with about $100 a month in disposable cash after garnisheeing and taxes. He’s got a steady girlfriend and job prospects.

“It’s amazing how small you can live,” said Schochet, whose longest jail stay was 11 days. “I’m down to paying for electricity, water, my cell phone, Internet and gas. Friends help out with whatever else I need.”

All that may be in jeopardy when he faces Firko again today to explain why he was rejected for a court-required $500,0000 life insurance policy naming his ex-wife and children as beneficiaries.

Schochet’s ex-wife, Sharona Grossberg, declined to be interviewed about her divorce, which became final in April 2012. Her attorney, William Schiffman, didn’t respond to requests seeking comment on the case.

“When I tell people what’s happened to me these last two years they say, ‘Your story can’t possibly be true, and you must be in court because you beat your wife,’” Schochet said. “This has nothing to do with anything other than money.”

The Silence of the SEALs – SEAL Team 6

Is this a case of Uncle Joe’s ‘loose lips sinking ships’ or something far more sinister? That would be very bad indeed, it would be negligence but not intentionally causing their deaths.

What if their own government wanted them out of the way and planned their assassination. There is another saying ‘dead men can’t talk’, were they killed to keep them from talking?

I was suspicious of the ‘gutsy call’ raid that killed OBL because I believe he had been dead long before the raid. I believe the raid was a lie, a staged event to allow Obama to proclaim “Osama bin Laden is dead and GM is alive”.

KUHNER: Who betrayed Navy SEAL Team 6?

  • Congress must discover how they were marked for death

What really happened to Navy SEAL Team 6? In August 2011, the elite special forces unit suffered the worst battlefield calamity in its history. A Taliban fighter shot down a Chinook helicopter carrying 22 Navy SEAL Team 6 members in Afghanistan. All 38 persons on board — the Navy SEAL warriors, other U.S. military personnel and seven Afghan soldiers — were killed. Grieving family members have been demanding answers. They may now get some as Congress finally opens an investigation.

Navy SEAL Team 6 has attained international prominence for one reason: They were responsible for killing Osama bin Laden. They are American heroes. Yet, their own government betrayed them. Several days after the bin Laden operation, Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. — in a pathetic attempt to spike the football and gloat — publicly revealed their central role in the raid. His revelations put a giant target on the backs of every Navy SEAL Team 6 member. A covert unit, whose mission is to operate in the murky shadows, was exposed as the group that eliminated al Qaeda’s chief mastermind. Mr. Biden’s reckless actions — followed by President Obama’s own words acknowledging the secret unit’s operation — jeopardized the Navy SEALs’ safety. Jihadists bent on revenge began an intense manhunt. The hunters now became the hunted.

Upon hearing of Mr. Biden’s disclosure, SEAL members were stunned. Many of them immediately contacted family members, warning them to eradicate all personal information from social-media sites. Aaron Vaughn, one of the SEALs eventually killed in the ambush, told his mother, Karen Vaughn, to delete every reference to SEAL Team 6 from her Facebook and Twitter accounts.

“I never heard Aaron this concerned and worried in his entire life,” Mrs. Vaughn said in an interview. “He called me and said, ‘Mom, you and Dad have to take everything down. Biden has just put a huge target on everybody.’”

Tragically, Aaron Vaughn was right. Mr. Biden is often portrayed in the liberal media as an amiable buffoon. His gaffes are written off as Joe simply being Joe — a loveable uncle figure who has a tendency to shoot his mouth off. That is pernicious nonsense. Mr. Biden is a cynical opportunist, who will say and do anything to advance Mr. Obama’s agenda. He hung the SEALs out to dry in order to score cheap political points. He compromised a highly sensitive, covert operation that ended up costing dozens of U.S. lives.

SEAL-gate is potentially a bigger scandal than Benghazi, Libya. The administration — along with the top military brass — are desperately trying to cover up what took place on that fateful raid. Taliban guerrillas were waiting for the Chinook as it approached its landing site. Apparently, someone tipped them off that the SEALs were coming; the helicopter was attacked from three sides in a coordinated ambush. The U.S. military claimed that the Chinook was blown to pieces by a shoulder-fired missile, in which everyone on board was burned beyond recognition. Hence, senior military officials ordered the American bodies cremated without the prior approval of their family members.

The military’s narrative, however, is false. Charles Strange, whose son, Michael, died during the attack, says he viewed the pictures of the crash site. “I saw Mike’s dead body,” Mr. Strange said in an interview. “It was clearly recognizable. He was clutching his gun. He wasn’t burned to a crisp. Why did they cremate my boy? They didn’t need to do that. Something’s not right.”

There are numerous questions that need to be answered. Why was the Chinook’s black box never found? The military claims it was washed away in a flash flood. Impossible. Flash flooding is extremely rare — almost unheard of — in that part of Afghanistan. Why was the Chinook not given aerial backup, which is standard military procedure when special forces are deployed?

Even more alarming, why were the seven Afghan soldiers who boarded the Chinook at the last minute different from those on the flight manifest? This clearly violated U.S. military protocol. Afghan strangers (al Qaeda suicide bombers?) got on that Chinook, and potentially sabotaged the raid.

Afghanistan President Hamid Karzai’s regime has been infiltrated with al Qaeda sympathizers. Only the naive could dismiss the possibility of an inside job: Jihadi cash in exchange for information about the whereabouts of our SEALs. If our supposed ally cut a deal with the Taliban, resulting in the slaughter of U.S. troops, it would be a humiliating blow to Mr. Obama’s failed Afghanistan policy.

The most important question of all remains the strict rules of engagement. Why were U.S. troops deployed into battle in a Chinook jalopy made in the 1960s and ordered not to fire back at Taliban snipers? Washington has imposed such severe rules of engagement — the inability to fire into civilian areas, the refusal to conduct night operations, and the reluctance to confront the regular occurrence of Afghan soldiers deliberately shooting American personnel — that defeat is not only likely, it’s inevitable.

Congressional Republicans must get to the bottom of this burgeoning scandal. Rep. Jason Chaffetz of Utah and Rep. Darrell E. Issa of California have now launched an official probe into the deaths of the SEALs. Thirty brave warriors honorably served their country — only to be betrayed. Those responsible must be exposed and punished. Justice demands it.

The Obama effect: Did he come to unite or divide? It’s obvious, he came to unite blacks against whites

Ladies and gentlemen, may I remind you of what Andrew Breitbart was murdered for, he said he had videos very damaging to Obama that would

"show you why racial division and class warfare are central to what hope and change was sold in 2008”.

He dropped dead of a heart attack in the wee hours of the very day he said he was going to start releasing the videos.

The videos that were later released fell short of the claims Breitbart had made but the videos that were released had already been shown, they were not new. That tells me the real videos have not been released.

But PBS, which aired the footage as part of a 2008 election special, noted "there's nothing new about the clip or Obama's role in the controversy at Harvard Law School."

Fox News contributor Juan Williams said on the show that he was disappointed by Breitbart's promised bombshell.

"I must say, I thought this was going to be so much more," said Williams. "I thought this was going to be a smoking gun... But it really didn't come to much."

Read more:

I’m not going to criticize the folks at Breitbart’s new organization to harshly for not releasing the real videos after all, your boss getting assassinated would have a chilling effect.

Someone said that the way we would know whether Breitbart was killed or not was that if the videos were released he died of a heart attack, if not he was murdered. I submit to you that the videos were not released!
