It is said that “war is the health of the state.” Because government’s goal is always to grow in size, influence and power there is a need for constant war to justify its continuous and infectous propagation.
A Cold War that has been going on for years, became clearly visible to me yesterday (while describing the events in Nevada to a few friends that were new to the developments there). The Cold War I am referring to is not the one with Putin’s Russia over issues such as Syria or Crimea or between the US government and all the brown skinned terrorists hiding under our beds hating us for our freedom. It is between the US Government and the American people who seek true freedom, sovereignty along with a constitutional and restrained government.
The US government has been stockpiling ammo for years. The Military Industrial Complex that Eisenhower warned us about is one of the most powerful groups in the US. The alternate media has been calling them on it but the captured mainstream media rarely mention it. These ammo purchases would not seem ludicrous at face value because practice ammo is constantly needed for training and qualification but the fact that they are buying hollow points and the quantity is in the billions (HERE) is what is problematic. Either they are wasting money by shooting paper with HP’s, they are driving the price of ammo up to keep it out of our hands, or they don’t intend to be shooting paper.
The truth is likely (d) all of the above; the paper targets purchased by some departments that depict children, elderly and even pregnant mothers as the “threats” tell us a lot. No More Hesitation targets pictured below (story HERE).
Small arms is only the tip of the iceberg. It his becoming commonplace for towns of only a few thousand residents to have thier police department receive a free MRAP from the Federal Government. These rolling mine resistant armored cars will be used to pacify the disorderly conduct of an uppity citizenry. Seeing something like this just makes you feel safe, doesn’t it?
On the other side, Obama can officially depict himself as firearms salesman of the decade (HERE).
Since he was elected, nearly every year there has been a new record for the number of background checks and firearms purchases only to be exceeded and a new record set the following year. Even when prices skyrocketed after the Aurora Theater Shooting and Sandy Hook Tragedy, sales of AR-15’s, P-Mags, 5.56, AK-47’s, 7.62 have been very strong. People who aren’t even fans of firearms are recognizing the need for them. It is common for people I know aren’t gun enthusiasts asking me for recommendations. People are stockpiling ammo and learning to reload their own. The BLM fiasco at the Bundy Ranch was a stark reminder that there are militia in this country that are very serious about preparation and their convictions.
With the various despicable alphabet agencies like the CIA, DHS and NSA we all knew the government was spying on us and violating the law/rules set forth by the 4th ammendment. Illegal searches, warrantless home entries, porno body scanners have all become acceptable because of the War on Terror and the War on (some)Drugs. Our emails are scanned, our phone conversations and texts are catalogued and stored. But we are told not to worry because it is just the metadata and its for our own good. The scale and structure was not fully understood by many non-red-pill taking Americans until Edward Snowden courageously released this information in detail. There are many sheeple who are opening their eyes a little bit more each day.
Edward Snowden work for the beast only to realize the US government isn’t fighting evil empires, they are the evil empire. Then there are those like Aaron Schwartz who help provide the spread of free information. Former servicemen like Bradley Manning who take the information our owners have collected and hand it over to someone like Assange who will see to it that it is available for the world to see. The life of a spy is often short and painful; the inevitable end willl probably include jail, torture and even execution after years of running, hiding and looking over ones shoulder.
My understanding is that espionage means giving secret or classified information to the enemy. Since Snowden shared information with the American people, his indictment for espionage could reveal (or confirm) that the US Government views you and me as the enemy. ~Ron Paul~
People are having a rough go at it, inflation adjusted income for the average person is the lowest in decades and the credit orgy isn’t as appealing to many as it was prior to 2007. The issue isn’t that the US government isn’t doing enough to help, it’s that it is doing so much to hinder the people who want to be free. Websites like The Burning Platform and Eric Peter’s Autos are bullied out of existence by the Google arm of the Feds for telling the truth and opening the minds of readers. They literally create regulations and rules to simply act as cement loafers so that those treading water expend so much energy just trying to stay afloat. People are so exhausted from this that they don’t have time to read and think critically; this is not an accident.
Soon the most profitable US business will be the company that mass produces Closed and Out Of Business signs.
Unlike during the first half of the 20th century, new automotive companies sprouting up are a rarity; except when they tout the “green energy/electric car” line that includes subsidies from big government. Decades ago there was innovation because smart people of average means figured out better ways to do things and went at it on their own to create wealth. Now those same people need billions of dollars (or the connections with politicians) just to get started. Legitimate loans are often hard to acquire for these people. The emissions and safety standards just to enter the market are motivation killers. The road blocks are literally so tall these people end up working for the monster corporations like GM who knowlingly continue to produce crappy products that cause deaths.
A perfect example of another affected industry is Healthcare. Obama-care is like a cluster timebomb going off every few seconds until the foreseeable future. Dictating the rules that affect your life by a group sackless bureaucrats.
This lack of innovation and over-regulation occurs in nearly all markets that actually produce a good. The agriculture industry is being destroyed while corporations like Monsanto grow exponentially. Somehow the merger between Time Warner and Comcast will go through and the service provided by this cable monster will actually get worse (one should just cancel their cable anyway) while the price increases. We should not wonder why jobs creating and producing useful products have been steadily run out of America while the few remaining products are produced by the largest possible corporations with tendrils in the government.
The recent Clive Bundy vs BLM incident is a perfect example of a border dispute. Private property rights, rule of law and respect of contracts are necessary for legitimate borders and peace. None of those things exist anymore. The BLM claims the land around Bundy’s ranch and demands grazing fees while not maintaining the land themselves and regulating the number of cattle he is allowed to have down to unprofitable quantities. But it is totally legal because a Federal Court ruled that the Federal Government is the rightful owner of the land; sounds legit to me (sic). Their goal is to regulate him out of business so they can either confiscate or outright buy it up from him just as they have done to the other 50 ranchers that are no longer in that area. This is literally a recreation of Ayn Rand’s Atlast Shrugged.
Bundy didn’t play ball and wouldn’t pay the fees so the feds stole his cattle and tried to fence it over in Utah. They ended up SOL when Utah refused to deal with stolen property. The people literally marched on the Feds position under threat of murder until the BLM backed down.
I don’t want to romanticize and hollywood-up this incident but it reminded me of the crowd of protestors marching past the blockades in V for Vendetta.
All taxes are theft but school/property taxes are one of the more despicable taxes, they essentially turn every (supposed) homeowner/landowner into a renter. Regardless of any good they might do they are evil for the sheer fact that they have destroyed the idea of true property rights and ownership. Even if you have paid off your mortgage you are not a land owner, try not paying your school/property taxes for a while; you will find out who really owns the land.
84% of Nevada is owned by the Federal Government. How does Mordor on the Potomac own more of Nevada that Nevadans and the state of Nevada combined? With a $17 trillion deficit, I think it is prudent for them to start selling off some of their assets.
Aggression Masked As Diplomacy:
Negotiations are a constant in our world. If terms are negotiated between mindful adults/parties then there can be peace but often dealings and negotiations with the US government involve coercion and the threat of violence. The use of aggressive violence and threat of its use has no place in a free society. The fact that it is part of the normal standard operating procedure of the US should not be a surprise because we are far from being a free society.
People are getting fed up with these tactics. Whether it is people refusing to stand down to police after a shooting, filming the police actions even when threatened with arrest, vocalizing their disapproval at town hall meetings or simply a rancher who has essentially says to the feds “I don’t recognise your authority regarding this, now fuck off!”
Propaganda/Ad Hominem Attacks:
One of the first steps in winning any war is the dehumanization of the enemy. Once that is successful those who sign the legislation and pull the triggers won’t see themselves as thieves and murderers because their victims are sub-human. These people are the enemy of freedom and the enemy of America.
Libertarians, Tea Party, 2nd Ammendment supporters, etc… are constantly labeled as extremists and one step away from being re-categorized as terrorists.
That picture says it all, hundreds of government agents were up against hundreds of protestors backed by armed militia men not afraid to exercise their 2nd ammendment and point their rifles downrange at a group that might decide to aggressively stand against freedom.
The writing is on the wall, war could break out between the US and America, preparations have been made and the tension is there for it to go from cold to a hot war at a moments notice. This is what characterizes a Cold War to me.
