UNION ADDRESS 2013 c/o Dr. Ryan Bartek

STATE OF THE COUNTERCULTURE UNION ADDRESS 2013 c/o Dr. Ryan Bartek It is said that “the rant” is the predominant communication of the madman. That to let passions rip in a volcanic stream is an indicator of mental imbalance, and that no such person doing so should be taken seriously. I, as well as many others, have finally reached a point where the traditional methods of communication have broken down, and where any presumption of niceties is now a figment of the imagination. At the tail end of 2011, the Occupy zeitgeist unleashed a global unity that was so fever-pitch in its impromptu explosion that there was no real time to sort out a unified message. It was just BAM – everyone was immediately on the streets because they were sick of everything. Many felt that they were instinctively on the same wavelength, so to speak, without any true discussion. Quite simply there was no time for sluggish academic debates to sort everything out rationally, because we were launched immediately into frantic motion. The powers that be responded as expected by pulling every dirty propagandic trick to savagely dismantle what was occurring. They put the pressure on through every information source they controlled, pulling the strings of every talking head they could. For instance, on the same day that the protesters & unions on the West Coast historically shut down all trade to Asia by physically blockading every port costing the United States over a billion dollars in revenue, there was no mention in the press except for scattered op-ed's declaring “dirty hippies won't let people work” or major media once again reiterating that nothing was happening at all, that everything had failed on our behalf, that the movement was dead and gone. And then came May Day, NATO, The Philadelphia National Gathering, The RNC, Occupy Bilderberg, Occupy Bohemian Grove, S29, Occupy Sandy & thousands of coordinated international efforts and historic localized grassroots ones. Anonymous itself became embroiled in a sort of ongoing cyber civil war, week after week revealing staggering and legitimate criminal conspiracies at the highest levels of our government and economic system that have made Watergate look like a joke in comparison. Once upon a time, there would be massive public uproar, political impeachments and serious criminal arrests. Instead the press has remained silent as rubble, and the people an unquestioning, uninterested herd. Still, despite all of their combined effort, the lies they continued to fabricate simply held no gravity to anyone who was actually paying attention. The illusion had shattered and we all knew the severity of the situation. So not knowing what else to do, they resorted to sheer force as always. Beginning last November, and continuing to this very day, the establishment sent in the Darth Vader riot cops, armed swat teams, government agents to terrorize, assault, imprison, mangle & manslaughter any last traces of dissidence. Once they felt they'd mopped the floor with us, they continued to broadcast their establishment approved script that the uprising was a failure and everyone had simply gone home. It wasn't the truth though, and they knew it same as us. No one “went home” – the youth had been radicalized, the average American with no prior political attention span had been awakened if not fanatically then generally, and thousands were literally driven underground having been legitimately targeted by the powers that be. Inner memo's from the Department of Justice, DHS & FBI released through FOIA requests show the system legally classified Occupy activists “domestic terrorists.” This leads us to two starkly different realities of this country. There is the version of America which is being broadcast on corporate dominated television and the Mitt Romney owned Clear Channel radio, and then there is the world our citizens live in day to day. There are those who spend their Saturday nights getting drunk & screaming at the flashing lights of UFC broadcasts as grown men beat the living crap out of each other in cages like animals, and then there are those of us who at the exact same moment are across town protecting families from illegal home evictions as the police bring tanks

and a hundred men in full tactical war gear to shoot us with rubber bullets, spray us with chemical weapons, or charge us with domestic terrorism. While groups of mindless women roast inside fake tan UV booths in an attempt to turn orange, there are other women across town having the courts abduct their children from them and placed in foster care for participating in even the most banal forms of Occupy activism. And then there are those who partied in the street when Obama won re-election, and there are those of us who know exactly what a monster this man really is. And he is an absolute hydra. He is also a murderer, a criminal, a thief & a joke. He is a national disgrace and must be removed from power by whatever legitimate means we have. Why? Well, things that you may have no knowledge about. My condemnation of Obama has nothing to do with the usual distorted arguments of right wing propaganda. It instead basis itself upon such dubious realities as Executive Order 13603, the NDAA, HR 347, Fukushima, Corexit 9500, FEMA Camps, ICE Centers, secret wars, indefinite detention, making the USA military & police legally one and the same – not to mention ICLEI, AGENDA 21, SOPA, PIPA, PP20, Obama's Bilderberg Membership, usurping Habeas Corpus, or ATF raids of raw milk farms or FBI raids of medical marijuana dispensaries or using Homeland Security to aggressively fight the drug war while allowing the CIA to retain its status as one of the largest drug smuggling operations on the planet. And let us not overlook the Fast & Furious scandal, Obama's refusal to close Guantanamo, his implementation of aggressive drone warfare, his approved assassination list for American citizens without trial or his treasonous complicity as a Federal Reserve accomplice. We cannot overlook his continued funding & support of Israeli apartheid state terrorism as well as blocking Palestinian Statehood. Nor can we dismiss his continued allowance of Bradley Manning being punished in solitary confinement for 3 continuous years without trial for heroically upholding his oath the constitution for exposing war crimes. Nor can we ignore Obama's aggressive supplying of drones to law enforcement across the nation, his allowance of the Feds instituting illegal nationwide random “terrorist hunting” checkpoints through the VIPER program or the installed Skywatch (Spy) Towers at Walmart stores nationwide. We also cannot overlook his refusal to outlaw the Dead Peasants Insurance Policy or his track record of bankrolling dictatorships or playing into the ever present 9/11 cover up while blatantly fabricating the death of Osama Bin Laden. Furthermore, Obama has federally blocked measures which were democratically elected, pursued a DNA collection database to be made from random traffic stops or street detentions, and above all creating a very real, very terrifying Orwellian police state through illegal Executive Orders... If you haven't been paying attention, most of that may seem like “mumbo jumbo.” So I will spell it all out plainly as I present my Top 21 nightmare news stories of 2012. Because like never before, last year I was a media hawk – and I'm not going to balance the other side of the argument with their propaganda. Quite frankly, we've entered this moment of national debate concerning gun rights which is being driven by the Obama administration itself because it suits their agenda. And it has nothing to do with keeping you safe, it really is about domestic control. Then they get a hatchet man like Piers Morgan to trot out Alex Jones to be their poster boy for the “looney opposition,” and of course Alex is going to play right into their hands because he is what he is, and all you need to do is get him fired up – they knew it & they welcomed it. But as I said before, the problem with Alex Jones is that he comes off as a total raving lunatic to middle America because he lives his sensationalist apocalypse vibe to the hilt. Everything he says sounds so far fetched and intense that the average American cannot take him seriously. The other problem with Alex Jones is that he is essentially telling the truth, even if exaggerated, and it's all so horrible most can only look away or dismiss it as tin foil hat madness. Although I must admit that perhaps the only man capable of delivering these messages is a guy like him. We need Alex Jones and his raging bullhorn, we need his loud ass mouth and Texan swagger – but we also need to devise a way

of delivering the police state message to the greater public at large. We cannot sit idly by as a defender of modern “liberalism” like Jon Stewart continues to snag the most important demographic. Not that I dislike Stewart per se, because in terms of mainstream media he delivers more truth as a clown then most of these networks combined. But Jon Stewart is solidly another one of these Democrat/Obama apologists who completely overlooks the Bilderberg & Bohemian Grove crowd – and Stewart will never, ever confront the FEMA camps. Without talking about the hundreds of concentration camps our government has created for USA dissidents or the 1.26 billion plus rounds of ammunition they bought last year to use against Americans you cannot be taken seriously as a reporter. Not that I'm about to declare my candidacy for the job of converting hearts and minds. I'm really to the point where if people can't see through this bullshit then fuck 'em completely, because the information is there and so rabidly in your face that all you need to do is jot down some notes and Google your suspicions. Like if you can't see through 9/11 – as Jon Stewart cannot – you have the mental capabilities of a 5 year old retarded child. Fire does not make concrete explode into dust, I don't give a fuck how hot it is. And if you're one of us who saw quite clearly three buildings being demolished by controlled demolition, and saw quite blatantly the step by step 1984 hell which was implemented in aftermath – and you know very well that they murdered Americans as an excuse to invade multiple countries in their endless resource war & you know quite well that the CIA's primary function is to keep a downtrodden hierarchy in effect & that this same CIA is funneling cocaine/crack onto urban USA streets to kill black people & you know our troops are in Afghanistan to move 90% of the worlds heroin & most of our economy is a for-profit prison complex & you know they are spraying chemtrails from planes & putting fluoride in the water to kill you & yet you still want these people to disarm all Americans as they continue to arm themselves to the teeth against you and fanatically train their soldiers to fight you and your family while supplying tanks & military assault weapons to police departments throughout the country... And still you somehow believe that they want to take your firearms to keep you safe?? To “protect you” from the vague threat of random crazy people who may or may not shoot up a school or movie theater in the future? When in the same really real reality we have police beating the living shit out of teenagers for holding peace signs & executing homeless people in the street & tazering people to death with impunity? As if outlawing anything has ever taken it off the black market? As if criminals won't break into your home and rob you and rape your wife because they know you don't have any guns? As if crazy won't find a way to do whatever insane thing it wants whether it has a hammer, gun powder or even a fork? Give me a fucking break... But back to Obama. I already have written a great deal about how he poisoned both oceans and killed millions already. If you're just hearing about it for the first time, he commanded the Japanese to dump all the water they were using to keep the Fukushima meltdowns from exploding directly into the Pacific Ocean. As a result, there is a radiation slick that is nearly 300,000 square miles and in some spots 7.5 million times the legal limit of radiation, and all of it ripe with Cesium and Plutonium. And now all of this lethal radioactivity is in all of the fish that you've been eating & will continue to eat for the next 12 billion years. If you've ate any fish from the Pacific Ocean since March 2011, chances are you'll die from cancer in the next 15 years. By the way, it's been raining weapons grade MOX plutonium on our country for 2 years now since it's been rising into the atmosphere nonstop in Japan. It's also entered our water and food supply permanently, and you're probably drinking nuclear elements right now. This is the real reason they are probably training all these troops for mass riots because soon people are going to begin dying en masse from mystery illnesses, and then people will begin putting the pieces together & OH SHIT – better make sure these people don't have any guns. Any of this adding up yet?

Obama also gave the authorization order for the Coast Guard and BP to dump millions of gallons of Corexit 9500 into the Gulf to combat the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Corexit 9500 is an experimental oil dispersant which completely mutilated the sea life and now neurotoxic poison is on all the food coming out of The Gulf. When you eat Corexit 9500 it makes your red blood cells explode and causes severe brain damage. Non-unionized clean up workers that BP hired and sent out without respirators or gear as well as people sprayed by coast guard planes illegally dumping this poison everywhere are now puking blood, bleeding from their eyes, dying en masse from “fictional ailments.” One kid – a marine, no less – went swimming in Orange Beach and developed 93 brain legions in 2 hours. Not only is Obama responsible for this Corexit mess but he also tried to cover it up by declaring a 15 year prison sentence and $40,000 fine for anyone filming the “clean up” on the beaches. Truth is they've just been burying it with sand and not cleaning anything. In fact, he had CNN shut down live and had Anderson Cooper pushed out by federal thugs on air. Don't believe me? Just search it on YouTube. And to follow it up, when the coastal economy was tanking, he ran to the aid of big business and had his children do a photo op on the beach saying everything was fine and to come and vacation and spend money as to goad people to go die in the poison waters on vacation. Thats just the beginning of what this abominable human has done, let alone spending more money then every American president combined and completely bankrupting our country. It's really, really tough to make Ronald Reagan look good, but somehow Obama has accomplished this. So without further adieu, let us proceed to the rancid meat of this diatribe. Even if the Obama administration isn't responsible for some of these, the majority of them could have been influenced or altered. You can only blame “Pentagon Drift” so much. Because if Obama can wave his magic Executive Order pen and make protesting a 15 year in prison offense and suspend the constitution with marshall law – as he has done – then there can be no excuse. The bottom line is that these items represent horrible ideological failure not only by the president, but from our entire federal bureaucracy... *** Top 21 Nightmare News Stories of 2012 *** 1) THE NDAA – It was Obama's present all of us on New Years Eve 2011 – the National Defense Authorization Act. Not only did it just sell us out for nearly a trillion dollars more war spending, but what the NDAA did was essentially create The United States Police Force, just like John Carpenter's Escape From New York. Obama made the USA military and the police one and the same, and changed it so that all USA territory was now considered a legal battlefield and that the military could do whatever it wanted to it';s own citizens. Not that they weren't doing that already, but this was brazenly open for all to see. And it also created a thing called “Indefinite Detention” which means the government can come abduct you, torture you, keep you in solitary confinement for life and they don't need proof, a warrant, a trial, anything without any judicial oversight, due process or even access to a lawyer. When the timid news media caught on and people started freaking out, Obama kept saying that the Republicans were putting this in and he was fighting it like some kind of civil rights hero, but the entire time he was the hotshot pushing this thing like crack rocks to school children. It was his prerogative and agenda, and he fought tooth and nail for the right to kill you. Furthermore, the $650 billion bill contains "$88.5 billion more for ongoing wars" and "would add $60 billion to the Navy's plans for the F-18 fighter program." The bill also supports the Pentagon’s plans for the Air Force to spend $3.7 billion on the F-35 fighter program and the Navy to spend $3.2 billion, on what is the biggest weapon program in history. Three billion was approved for the Army to enhance its ground services capabilities and to purchase Blackhawk helicopters. The Navy was approved for an additional $778 million for the "advance procurement for attack submarines." The Marine Corps Times said, "the Armed Services Committee's proposals on major weapon programs were left unscathed." How’s that

for the fiscal cliff? Thanks Barack, once again, for somehow making Ronald Reagan look good. 2) EXECUTIVE ORDER 13603 – Oops! Is that pesky Constitution getting in the way? Well then, let's just sign another insane dictatorial order that sets up the framework so one little flip of a switch the nation turns into a totalitarian police state. It's called Executive Order 13603 and it was signed on March 26th, 2012 in secret and quietly released by the White House on its website without comment. Also known as the “National Defense Resources Preparedness Executive Order,” this Hitlerian document does to the country as a whole what the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act did to the Constitution in particular – completely eviscerates any due process or judicial oversight for any action by the Government deemed in the interest of "national security." Like the NDAA, the new Executive Order puts the government completely above the law. The USA is now essentially under martial law without the reality of a national emergency even occurring. This Executive Order is rooted in the Defense Production Act of 1950 which gave the Government powers to mobilize national resources in the event of national emergencies, except now every aspect of American life falls under ultimate unchallengeable government control to be exercised by the president and his secretaries at their discretion. 13603 states that the president and his secretaries have the authority to commandeer all U.S. domestic resources, including food and water, as well as seize all energy and transportation infrastructure inside the borders of the United States. The Government can also forcibly draft U.S. citizens into the military and force U.S. citizens to fulfill "labor requirements" [i.e. concentration camps] for the purposes of "national defense." There is not even any Congressional oversight allowed, only briefings. What is extraordinary in the new Executive Order is that this supreme power is designated through the president to the secretaries that run the Government itself. For instance, The Secretary of Defense has power over all water resources. The Secretary of Commerce has power over all material services and facilities, including construction materials. The Secretary of Transportation has power over all forms of civilian transportation. The Secretary of Agriculture has power over food resources and facilities, livestock plant health resources, and the domestic distribution of farm equipment. The Secretary of Health and Human Services has power over all health resources. The Secretary of Energy has power over all forms of energy. 13603 even stipulates that in the event of conflict between the secretaries in using these powers, the president will determine the resolution through his “national security team.” 13603 also gives the government, through the Secretary of Labor, the right to mobilize U.S. citizens for "labor" as the government deems necessary and to coordinate with the Secretary of Defense to maintain data to coordinate the nation's work needs in relation to national defense. What is extraordinary about this Executive Order is that, like the NDAA, this can all be done in peacetime without any national emergency to justify it. The language of the Order does not state that all these extraordinary measures will be done in the event of "national security" or a "national emergency." They can simply be done for "purposes of national defense," clearly a broader remit that allows the government to do what it wants, when it wants, how it wants, to whomever it wants, all without any judicial restraint or due process. 3) OBAMA PASSES HR 347 – This bill criminalizes protesting. Shortly after Executive Order 13603, Obama also had this one passed in March 2012, Called the “Federal Restricted Buildings and Grounds Improvement Act of 2011.” The law, created directly in response to Occupy, specifies as criminal offenses the acts of entering or remaining in areas defined as “restricted.” So here's the deal – if you enter an area without official clearance where someone has secret service protection (or will have secret service protection anytime in the next 6 months whether you know it or not) you get a mandatory 15 years in federal prison. Thanks Obama, for somehow making Richard Nixon look good. 4) OBAMA SENDS DEATH SQUADS TO MURDER OCCUPY HOUSTON -- This is a fun one that shows how much Barack has in common with Martin Luther King Jr! We already knew that they

dropped an avalanche of slimy tricks on the Occupy movement, but we didn't know that Obama sent sniper teams to assassinate (if need be) the leaders of Occupy Houston before it even began. This was discovered from an FOIA request, when the Feds released a heavily censored report on what they'd been up to all along. Obtained by the Partnership for Civil Justice Fund (PCJF), these docs reveal that from its inception, the FBI treated the Occupy movement as a criminal and terrorist threat even though the agency acknowledges in documents that organizers explicitly called for peaceful protest and did “not condone the use of violence.” These heavily redacted documents showed that FBI offices and agents around the country were in high gear conducting surveillance against the movement even as early as August 2011, a month prior to the establishment of the OWS encampment in Zuccotti Park and other Occupy actions around the country. On Page 61 of the FBI documents it reads -- "An [redacted] identified as of October planned to engage in SNIPER ATTACKS AGAINST PROTESTERS in Houston, Texas, if deemed necessary. An indentified [redacted] had received intelligence that indicated the protesters in New York and Seattle planned similar protests in Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, and Austin, Texas. [redacted] planned to gather intelligence against the leaders of the protest groups and obtain photographs, then formulate a plan to kill the leadership via suppressed sniper rifles." (read here: ) 5) THE DOMESTIC SECURITY ALLIANCE COUNCIL (aka ITALIAN FASCIST CORPORATISM IN THE UNITED STATES) – These same FOIA documents show that as early as August 19, 2011, the FBI in New York was meeting with the New York Stock Exchange to discuss the Occupy Wall Street protests that wouldn’t start for another month. By September, again prior to the start of the OWS, the FBI was notifying businesses that they might be the focus of an OWS protest. Documents released show coordination between the FBI, Department of Homeland Security and corporate America. They include a report by the Domestic Security Alliance Council (DSAC), described by the federal government as “a strategic partnership between the FBI, the Department of Homeland Security and the private sector,” discussing the OWS protests at the West Coast ports to “raise awareness concerning this type of criminal activity.” The DSAC report shows the nature of secret collaboration between American intelligence agencies and their corporate clients – the document contains a “handling notice” that the information is “meant for use primarily within the corporate security community. Such messages shall not be released in either written or oral form to the media, the general public or other personnel…” Naval Criminal Investigative Services (NCIS) reported to the DSAC on the relationship between OWS and organized labor for the port actions. The NCIS describes itself as “an elite worldwide federal law enforcement organization” whose “mission is to investigate and defeat criminal, terrorist, and foreign intelligence threats to the United States Navy and Marine Corps ashore, afloat and in cyberspace.” The NCIS also assists with the transport of Guantanamo prisoners. DSAC issued several tips to its corporate clients on “civil unrest” which it defines as ranging from “small, organized rallies to large-scale demonstrations and rioting.” It advised to dress conservatively, avoid political discussions and “avoid all large gatherings related to civil issues. Even seemingly peaceful rallies can spur violent activity or be met with resistance by security forces. Bystanders may be arrested or harmed by security forces using water cannons, tear gas or other measures to control crowds.” 6) OBAMA USES FBI TO DISMANTLE OCCUPY – Again discovered from the same FOIA request were the following items. The FBI in Anchorage reported from a Joint Terrorism Task Force meeting of November 3, 2011, about Occupy activities in Anchorage. A port Facility Security Officer in Anchorage coordinated with the FBI to attend the meeting of protestors and gain intelligence on the planning of the port actions. He was advised to request the presence of an Anchorage Police Department official to also attend the event. The FBI Special Agent told the undercover private operative that he would notify the Joint Terrorism Task Force and that he would provide a point of

contact at the Anchorage Police Department. The Jacksonville, Florida FBI prepared a Domestic Terrorism briefing on the “spread of the Occupy Wall Street Movement” in October 2011. The intelligence meeting discussed Occupy venues identifying “Daytona, Gainesville and Ocala Resident Agency territories as portions… where some of the highest unemployment rates in Florida continue to exist.” The Tampa, Florida FBI “Domestic Terrorism” liaison participated with the Tampa Police Department’s monthly intelligence meeting in which Occupy Lakeland, Occupy Polk County and Occupy St. Petersburg were discussed. They reported on an individual “leading the Occupy Tampa” and plans for travel to Gainesville for a protest planning meeting, as well as on Veterans for Peace plans to protest at MacDill Air Force Base. The Federal Reserve in Richmond appears to have had personnel surveilling OWS planning. They were in contact with the FBI in Richmond to “pass on information regarding the movement known as occupy Wall Street.” There were repeated communications “to pass on updates of the events and decisions made during the small rallies and the following information received from the Capital Police Intelligence Unit through JTTF (Joint Terrorism Task Force).” The Virginia FBI was collecting intelligence on the OWS movement for dissemination to the Virginia Fusion Center and other Intelligence divisions. The Milwaukee division of the FBI was coordinating with the Ashwaubenon Public Safety division in Green Bay Wisconsin regarding Occupy. The Memphis FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force met to discuss “domestic terrorism” threats, including, “Aryan Nations, Occupy Wall Street, and Anonymous.” The Birmingham, AL division of the FBI sent communications to HAZMAT teams regarding the Occupy Wall Street movement. The Jackson, Mississippi division of the FBI attended a meeting of the Bank Security Group in Biloxi, MS with multiple private banks and the Biloxi Police Department, in which they discussed an announced protest for “National Bad Bank Sit-In-Day” on December 7, 2011. The Denver, CO FBI and its Bank Fraud Working Group met and were briefed on Occupy Wall Street in November 2011. Members of the Working Group include private financial institutions and local area law enforcement. Jackson, MS Joint Terrorism Task Force issued a “Counterterrorism Preparedness” alert. This heavily redacted document includes the description, “To document…the Occupy Wall Street Movement.” You can read the FBI OWS documents below where we have uploaded them in searchable format for public viewing. The PCJF filed Freedom of Information Act demands with multiple federal law enforcement agencies in the fall of 2011 as the Occupy crackdown began. The FBI initially attempted to limit its search to only one limited record keeping index. Recognizing this as a common tactic used by the FBI to conduct an inadequate search, the PCJF pressed forward demanding searches be performed of the FBI headquarters as well as FBI field offices nationwide.The FBI’s Indianapolis division released a “Potential Criminal Activity Alert” on September 15, 2011, even though they acknowledged that no specific protest date had been scheduled in Indiana. The documents show that the Indianapolis division of the FBI was coordinating with “All Indiana State and Local Law Enforcement Agencies,” as well as the “Indiana Intelligence Fusion Center,” the FBI “Directorate of Intelligence” and other national FBI coordinating mechanisms. Documents show the spying abuses of the FBI’s “Campus Liaison Program” in which the FBI in Albany and the Syracuse Joint Terrorism Task Force disseminated information to “sixteen (16) different campus police officials,” and then “six (6) additional campus police officials.” Campus officials were in contact with the FBI for information on OWS. A representative of the State University of New York at Oswego contacted the FBI for information on the OWS protests and reported to the FBI on the SUNY-Oswego Occupy encampment made up of students and professors. 7) DHS ORDERS 1.26 BILLION ROUNDS OF AMMUNITION – While Americans are being assailed with rhetoric about the necessity of disarming semi-automatic weapons in the name of preventing school shootings, the federal government is continuing to arm itself to the teeth. This is a continuing developing story. Last week it was discovered that the DHS [The Department of Homeland Security] purchased another 21.6 million rounds of ammunition to add to the 1.6 billion bullets it has already obtained over the last 10 months alone, figures which critics assume can only mean the Feds

are preparing for civil unrest. A solicitation posted last week on the Fed Bid website details how the bullets are required for a DHS Federal Law Enforcement Training Center in Artesia, New Mexico. The solicitation asks for 10 million pistol cartridge .40 caliber 165 Grain, jacketed Hollow point bullets (100 quantities of 100,000 rounds) and 10 million 9mm 115 grain jacketed hollow point bullets (100 quantities of 100,000 rounds). The document also lists a requirement for 1.6 million pistol cartridge 9mm ball bullets (40 quantities of 40,000 rounds). An approximation of how many rounds of ammunition the DHS has now secured over the last 10 months stands at around 1.625 billion. In March 2012, ATK announced that they had agreed to provide the DHS with a maximum of 450 million bullets over four years, a story that prompted questions about why the feds were buying ammunition in such large quantities. In September last year, the federal agency purchased a further 200 million bullets. To put that in perspective, during the height of active battle operations in Iraq, US soldiers used 5.5 million rounds of ammunition a month. Extrapolating the figures, the DHS has purchased enough bullets over the last 10 months to wage a full scale war for almost 30 years. Such massive quantities of ammo purchases have stoked fears that the agency is preparing for some kind of domestic unrest. In 2011, Department of Homeland Security chief Janet Napolitano directed Immigration and Customs Enforcement to prepare for a mass influx of immigrants into the United States, calling for the plan to deal with the “shelter” and “processing” of large numbers of people. The federal agency’s primary concern is now centered around thwarting “homegrown terrorism,” but information produced and used by the DHS to train its personnel routinely equates conservative political ideology with domestic extremism. A study funded by the Department of Homeland Security that was leaked last year characterizes Americans who are “suspicious of centralized federal authority,” and “reverent of individual liberty” as “extreme right-wing” terrorists. In August 2012, the DHS censored information relating to the amount of bullets purchased by the federal agency on behalf of Immigration & Customs Enforcement, citing an “unusual and compelling urgency” to acquire the bullets, noting that there is a shortage of bullets which is threatening a situation that could cause “substantial safety issues for the government” should law enforcement officials not be adequately armed. The DHS’ previous ammo solicitation was awarded to Evian Group, an organization formed just 5 days before the announcement of the solicitation and appeared to be little more than a front organization since it didn’t have a genuine physical address, a website, or even a phone number. Last September, the DHS purchased no less than 7,000 fully automatic assault rifles, labeling them “Personal Defense Weapons.” [p.s. most of this section is an InfoWars edit – aka “credit where credit is due”]. 8) OBAMA REAUTHORIZES THE PATRIOT ACT – And as we shall again see, George Bush is now deep into the 14th year of his presidency. Oh, I'm sorry, oh yeah, haha. Anyway, you guessed it – Obama reauthorized The USA Patriot Act. Sitting on an Orwellina shelf for years and passed in the middle of the night just six weeks after the September 11 attacks, a panicked Congress passed this wonderful legislation. Why wouldn't they? It was clearly patriotic, even though most didn't bother to read the bill. It was an overnight revision of the entire nation's surveillance laws that vastly expanded the government's authority to spy on its own citizens, while simultaneously reducing checks and balances on those powers like judicial oversight, public accountability, and the ability to challenge government searches in court. The Senate version of the Patriot Act was sent straight to the floor with no discussion, debate, or hearings. Many Senators complained that they had little chance to read it, much less analyze it, before having to vote but the Bush Administration implied that members who voted against it would be blamed for any further attacks – a powerful threat at a time when the nation was expecting a second attack to come any moment and when reports of “anthrax letters” were appearing daily (anyone else remember those?). So what did it do, and what does ti still do, thanks to Obama? The Patriot Act increases the government's surveillance powers in four areas – 1) It expands the government's ability to look at records on an individual's activity being held by third parties. (Section 215) 2) It expands the government's ability to conduct secret searches of private property

without notice to the owner. (Section 213) 3) It expands a narrow exception to the Fourth Amendment that had been created for the collection of foreign intelligence information (Section 218). 4) It expands another Fourth Amendment exception for spying that collects "addressing" information about the origin and destination of communications, as opposed to the content (Section 214). Also one of the most significant provisions of the Patriot Act makes it far easier for the authorities to gain access to records of citizens' activities being held by a third party. At a time when computerization is leading to the creation of more and more such records, Section 215 of the Patriot Act allows the FBI to force anyone at all – including doctors, libraries, bookstores, universities, and Internet service providers – to turn over records on their clients or customers. The result is unchecked government power to rifle through individuals' financial records, medical histories, Internet usage, bookstore purchases, library usage, travel patterns, or any other activity that leaves a record. Making matters worse the government no longer has to show evidence that the subjects of search orders are an "agent of a foreign power," a requirement that previously protected Americans against abuse of this authority. The FBI does not even have to show a reasonable suspicion that the records are related to criminal activity, much less the requirement for "probable cause" that is listed in the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution. All the government needs to do is make the broad assertion that the request is related to an ongoing terrorism or foreign intelligence investigation. Judicial oversight of these new powers is essentially non-existent. The government must only certify to a judge - with no need for evidence or proof - that such a search meets the statute's broad criteria, and the judge does not even have the authority to reject the application. Surveillance orders can be based in part on a person's First Amendment activities, such as the books they read, the Web sites they visit, or a letter to the editor they have written. A person or organization forced to turn over records is prohibited from disclosing the search to anyone. As a result of this gag order, the subjects of surveillance never even find out that their personal records have been examined by the government. That undercuts an important check and balance on this power: the ability of individuals to challenge illegitimate searches. For centuries, common law has required that the government can't go into your property without telling you, and must therefore give you notice before it executes a search. That "knock and announce" principle has long been recognized as a part of the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution. The Patriot Act, however, unconstitutionally amends the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure to allow the government to conduct searches without notifying the subjects, at least until long after the search has been executed. This means that the government can enter a house, apartment or office with a search warrant when the occupants are away, search through their property, take photographs, and in some cases even seize property – and not tell them until later. Finally, this new "sneak and peek" power can be applied as part of normal criminal investigations; it has nothing to do with fighting terrorism or collecting foreign intelligence. In addition, the FBI can secretly conduct a physical search or wiretap on American citizens to obtain evidence of crime without proving probable cause, as the Fourth Amendment explicitly requires. A 1978 law called the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) created an exception to the Fourth Amendment's requirement for probable cause when the purpose of a wiretap or search was to gather foreign intelligence. The rationale was that since the search was not conducted for the purpose of gathering evidence to put someone on trial, the standards could be loosened. In a stark demonstration of why it can be dangerous to create exceptions to fundamental rights, however, the Patriot Act expanded this once-narrow exception to cover wiretaps and searches that DO collect evidence for regular domestic criminal cases. FISA previously allowed searches only if the primary purpose was to gather foreign intelligence. But the Patriot Act changes the law to allow searches when "a significant purpose" is intelligence. That lets the government circumvent the Constitution's probable cause requirement even when its main goal is ordinary law enforcement. The eagerness of many in law enforcement to dispense with the requirements of the Fourth Amendment was revealed in August 2002 by the secret court that oversees domestic intelligence spying (the "FISA Court"). Making public one of its opinions for the first time in history, the court revealed that it had rejected an attempt by the Bush Administration to allow criminal

prosecutors to use intelligence warrants to evade the Fourth Amendment entirely. The court also noted that agents applying for warrants had regularly filed false and misleading information. That opinion is now on appeal. Under the Patriot Act PR/TT orders issued by a judge are no longer valid only in that judge's jurisdiction, but can be made valid anywhere in the United States. This "nationwide service" further marginalizes the role of the judiciary, because a judge cannot meaningfully monitor the extent to which his or her order is being used. In addition, this provision authorizes the equivalent of a blank warrant: the court issues the order, and the law enforcement agent fills in the places to be searched. That is a direct violation of the Fourth Amendment's explicit requirement that warrants be written "particularly describing the place to be searched." The Patriot Act applies the distinction between transactional and content-oriented wiretaps to the Internet. The problem is that it takes the weak standards for access to transactional data and applies them to communications that are far more than addresses. On an e-mail message, for example, law enforcement has interpreted the "header" of a message to be transactional information accessible with a PR/TT warrant. But in addition to routing information, e-mail headers include the subject line, which is part of the substance of a communication - on a letter, for example, it would clearly be inside the envelope. The government also argues that the transactional data for Web surfing is a list of the URLs or Web site addresses that a person visits. For example, it might record the fact that they visited "" at 1:15 in the afternoon, and then skipped over to "" at 1:30. This claim that URLs are just addressing data breaks down in two different ways: Web addresses are rich and revealing content. The URLs or "addresses" of the Web pages we read are not really addresses, they are the titles of documents that we download from the Internet. When we "visit" a Web page what we are really doing is downloading that page from the Internet onto our computer, where it is displayed. Therefore, the list of URLs that we visit during a Web session is really a list of the documents we have downloaded - no different from a list of electronic books we might have purchased online. That is much richer information than a simple list of the people we have communicated with; it is intimate information that reveals who we are and what we are thinking about - much more like the content of a phone call than the number dialed. After all, it is often said that reading is a "conversation" with the author [ps THANKS to the ACLU for compiling this info]. 9) FBI RESPONSIBLE FOR MAJORITY OF TERRORIST PLOTS IN THE USA – In it's continued campaign to secure the USA from future terrorist attacks, The Federal Bureau of Investigation has been caught developing of a network of nearly 15,000 spies to infiltrate various communities (Occupy & Tea Party included) in an attempt to uncover terrorist plots. However, these moles are actually assisting and encouraging people to commit crimes, as well as aggressively seeking them out online, in person, as well as arming and funding them. Many informants [i.e. criminals & snitches who are avoiding jail by being turned into actors] are also receiving cash rewards of up to $100,000 per case – & 10) MARINE & IRAQ VET BRANDON RAUB ABDUCTED BY GOVERNMENT & FORCED INTO ASYLUM FOR FACEBOOK POSTS ABOUT 9/11 -- Last August a 26 year old Iraq/Afghanistan Veteran named Brandon Raub was abducted from his home by FBI, Secret Service & Chesterfield County PD. Without warrant, Ruab was detained for posting on Facebook that 9/11 was a government conspiracy and then locked in John Randolph Psychiatric Hospital in Hopewell, Va. One of his posts in question pictured the gaping hole in the Pentagon asking: "where's the plane?" Most of the supposed posts in question were made on a closed Facebook page that Raub had recently created so he questioned whether anyone from the public would have complained about them. Col. Thierry Dupuis, the county police chief, said Raub was taken into custody upon the recommendation of mental health crisis intervention workers. He said the action was taken under the state's emergency custody statute,

which allows a magistrate to order the civil detention and psychiatric evaluation of a person who is considered potentially dangerous. If it wasn't for the savvy social media abilities of Raub's own mother, the wider world would never have heard of his case and he would most likely still be illegally detained. Luckily she uploaded gthe video to YouTube instantly, and contacted every news source online that would run such a story. For government officials to not only arrest Brandon Raub for doing nothing more than exercising his First Amendment rights but to actually force him to undergo psychological evaluations and detain him against his will goes against every constitutional principle this country was founded upon. "I really love America, and I think that idea that you can be detained and sent somewhere without due process and a lawyer … is crazy," Raub said. In a terrifying later development, it was discovered that in this same Virginia County nearly 20,000 people are arrested like this every year and are held in asylums without warrant, trial, or even access to a lawyer. 11) FIRST AUDIT OF FEDERAL RESERVE REVEALS 16 TRILLION DOLLARS ILLEGALLY LOANED TO MAJOR BANKS – The first ever audit of the Federal Reserve reveals 16 trillion dollars in secret bailouts to major American and European banks during the height of the global financial crisis, from 2007 to 2010. Morgan Stanley received up to $107.3 billion, Citigroup took $99.5 billion, and Bank of America $91.4 billion, according to data obtained through Freedom of Information Act requests, months of litigation, and an act of Congress. 12) REPUBLICAN PARTY STEALS ELECTION FROM RON PAUL – Whatever you may think of him, Ron Paul was the genuine heir to the GOP's nomination, and the establishment effectively crushed his presidential bid. All credit for this goes to reporter Jaret Glenn, wherever you are. If you want to view links, visit – The following narrative includes links to reports, first-hand testimonials, and video evidence highlighting actions taken by the GOP to ensure a Romney victory, at the expense of fracturing the party just prior to the general election. Party leaders at the county and state level have changed or violated party rules, canceled caucuses, changed vote counts, thrown out entire counties of votes, counted public votes privately, called-in the SWAT team, and inexplicably replaced Paul delegates with Romney delegates to block Ron Paul from winning the nomination. Iowa: Days before the caucuses, Paul held a commanding lead in the polls and all the momentum, with every other candidate having peaked from favorable media coverage and then collapsed under the ensuing scrutiny. Establishment Republicans, like Iowa’s Representative Steve King (R), attempted to sabotage Paul’s campaign by spreading rumors he would lose to Obama if nominated. Huffington Post reported that Paul was ahead by one point over Romney and Rick Santorum in entrance polls conducted by Edison Media Research for the AP before the caucuses. For the first time ever, the Iowa GOP changed the final vote count to a secret location. After the caucus, results from 8 precincts (including those with colleges, in a state where Paul won 48% of the youth vote) went missing. Interestingly, these were all precincts Romney lost in 2008. In addition, GOP officials discovered inaccuracies in 131 precincts. Though polling in a comfortable first place, Paul finished third in this non-binding straw poll, behind Romney and Santorum. Iowa originally reported Romney in first, Santorum in a close second, and Paul third. After the recount, Santorum was named the winner with Romney in second. No mention was given to how the recount affected Paul’s vote count. Iowa GOP chairman, Matt Strawn, later resigned and was replaced by Paul supporter, A.J. Spiker and Paul went on to win the majority of delegates. Florida: The Florida GOP broke party rules by switching to a winner-take-all state before the date allowed, which favors the candidate with the most money for advertising and attack ads. Senior Advisor to the Ron Paul campaign, Doug Wead, claims this was done specifically to favor Romney. Nevada: There is bad blood between Paul’s supporters and establishment Republicans in Nevada. This dates back to 2008, when Convention Chair, Sue Lowden and her enlisted delegates got up and walked out of the convention when it became apparent Paul’s supporters would claim a majority of the

delegates. She claimed she would reconvene at a later time, but instead approved the McCain slate of delegates. This year, Paul supporters expected shenanigans; so his State Chairman, Carl Bunce, planned to win by outworking Romney. Just before the caucuses, he claimed to have “more ID's than Romney had votes in ’08″. This means through canvassing door-to-door and phoning voters, he had identified about 25,000 voters committed to show up and vote for Paul. On caucus day, the media was denied access to most caucus sites and the few that were permitted were not allowed to take photos. Others were even ejected from sites. This CNN clip shows GOP staff preventing a Paul supporter from entering the premises to vote at a special caucus that was set up at the last minute for Newt Gingrich backer, Sheldon Adelson. Here, participants were asked to sign an affidavit (under penalty of perjury) stating they were Jewish and couldn’t vote earlier in the day due to “religious reasons”. CNN showed live coverage of votes being counted at this event, with Paul amassing nearly 60% of the votes. In some precincts in Clark County, the largest in Nevada, the number of ballots did not match the number of voters signed in at the caucus. Though votes were to be counted publicly, they were largely counted in private. The vote count was also inexplicably dragged out for several days, leading to a victory for Romney. Nevada State GOP Chairwoman, Amy Tarkanian resigned the day after the caucuses. Another interesting note is that Paul’s 2012 votes had doubled, tripled, and more than quadrupled his 2008 votes in every state leading up to the Nevada caucuses, yet Paul received only 88 more votes there. Of all the places for this to occur, Nevada, the country’s most libertarian state; is the last in which anyone would expect this. In spite of these irregularities, Paul won 22 of 25 state delegates and replaced state party officials with Paul supporters. Romney supporters then formed their own state party, called “Team Nevada”. The RNC then bypassed the official state party in order to organize for Romney and send all funds to Team Nevada. Colorado: Romney supporters were caught passing out fake Ron Paul slates at the state convention. The RNC has not investigated or even commented on the matter. Minnesota: Doug Wead, claims the state party instructed members not to vote for any delegates under age fifty because most young delegates support Paul. Missouri: WXIX Cincinnati’s Ben Swann covered the fiasco in Clay County, Missouri’s largest county. Temporary Chairman, Eugene Dokes, started the meeting by banning video recording devices, a first for this event. Robert’s Rules of Order require the temporary chairman to accept nominations and elect a convention chairman to run the event. Instead, he appointed a chair of his choice. The crowd immediately erupted with booing. Shortly after, Dokes adjourned the meeting without the required two-thirds majority, called the police on attendees, and left. In adherence to state rules, Paul supporter, Brent Stafford, along with one of the top parliamentarians in the state, reconvened in the parking lot and attempted to resume the event. Shortly after, the SWAT team arrived and arrested Stafford, who was following state party rules. Dokes later admitted on talk radio that he and other state party officials deliberately broke the rules to prevent Paul from winning. Maine: Ben Swann reported on shenanigans in Maine. Even though only 84% of votes had been counted; State GOP Chairman, Charlie Webster, declared Romney the winner over Paul by less than 200 votes. Hancock and Washington Counties hadn’t voted yet because Webster canceled the caucuses due to an impending snowstorm, promising they could vote later and their votes would be counted. The snowstorm never occurred and he later reneged on his promise, telling voters in those counties their votes would not be counted after all. Washington County was Paul’s strongest in the state in 2008. Though other states with close outcomes held recounts, this was never a consideration for Maine. At least one of the counties that did vote claims the state party recorded its tallies incorrectly. Matt McDonald, pastor of a small community church in Belfast, was nominated as the chairman of his caucus. He says the state instructed the caucus chairmen not to read any of the vote totals aloud, but rather to send the results straight to Augusta without a public reading. McDonald made a motion to change this rule, and it was approved unanimously. McDonald says 22 voters showed up, resulting in 8 votes for Paul, 7 for Santorum, 5 for Romney, and 2 undecided. When he called the votes into Augusta, he was told they already had the results and the totals read 9 for Romney, 5 or Santorum, and 2 for Paul. When McDonald told her the tally had been counted publicly, he says “her voice changed and she

said… we’ll record this”. Doug Wead claims, “On every occasion, the votes that were lost were Ron Paul votes and the person responsible for reporting them were Mitt Romney supporters… in one case the votes were actually transferred from paper to…a computer and the lady doing the transfer was a Mitt Romney person”. To date, these tallies have not been corrected and Romney is still credited with the straw vote win while the media continues to report that Paul never won a state contest. Arizona: The Examiner’s Kevin Kervick reports “ballot stuffing, rule violations, and improper vote counting that occurred behind closed doors” at the convention. In addition, Paul supporters allege threats of physical violence from Romney supporters. Michigan: Doug Wead reports, “Michigan, unlike any other state… had a special party rule forbidding any precinct delegate vacancies from being filled at county conventions until after the state delegates and alternates were chosen. In other words, countless Ron Paul supporters attending county convention were forcibly blocked…because they weren’t elected precinct delegates in 2010-long before the Ron Paul 2012 campaign began”. Wead also claims “documented instances in multiple counties where county party officials “edited” the state delegation lists after the county conventions adjourned”. Wyoming: A commenter on Paul supporter website,, explains how members of the Republican Executive Committee (all Romney supporters) illegally cast votes in the delegate selection vote. Washington: At the state convention, a Ron Paul delegate claimed bubble ballot sheets were withheld in King County’s district 36. He also claims the 37th district caucus was forced to conduct the meeting outside because Chairwoman, Lori Sotelo, was irritated when a Ron Paul supporter was elected to run the caucus, instead of her choice. Ben Swann interviewed a voter in Pierce County, Washington; who claims the local Republican leadership passed out what they called a “unity slate” to voters and said it represented an equal distribution of delegates committed to Romney, Santorum, and Gingrich. The plan was to organize to block Ron Paul supporters, who outnumbered the other candidates’ supporters, from receiving the lion’s share of the delegates. The Republican leadership prevailed. Alaska: In spite of last-minute rule changes and violations of party rules, Paul supporters ousted longtime state chairman, Randy Ruedrich, and voted-in Paul supporter, Russ Millette. Ruedrich then tried to sabotage the state convention and transferred all of the state party’s $100,000 to the local Capital City Republicans in Juneau, effectively bankrupting the party now controlled by Paul supporters. Georgia: A video shows GOP Chairwoman, Sue Everhart, at the Athens Clarke County GOP meeting admitting “shoddy treatment of the Ron Paul people at that [2008] convention” and publicly apologizing. She presents the rule book that she helped to write and claims it won’t happen again. The video then shows the actual convention and party leaders breaking those rules to force their pre-selected slate of delegates and prevent Paul’s supporters from electing their own. Party leaders then adjourned the meeting illegally and ran out of the meeting. Massachusetts: Paul won 16 of the 27 delegates selected so far in Romney’s home state. In addition, he swept all 6 from Romney’s home county. As a result (for the first time ever in the state), delegates were asked to sign an affidavit stating ” I certify under the pain and penalty of perjury, that on the first ballot at the 2012 RNC, I will affirmatively Vote for Mitt Romney, the winner of the 2012 Massachusetts Presidential Primary.” The state GOP then covered up Romney’s embarrassing loss by invalidating ballots and ousting the Paul delegates. North Dakota: Ben Swann reports the selection of delegates was unfair: the GOP handed out pre-printed ballots with a slate of delegates with 60% of them being Mitt Romney supporters in a state where he won only 26% of the vote. Oklahoma: Kevin Kervick of The Examiner reports that the Oklahoma convention had to be moved to the parking lot because Robert’s Rules were ignored, delegate credentials were not verified, a convention chair was never appointed, motions made from the floor were ignored, the Chairman illegally elected a slate of Romney delegates, and the convention was closed without a two-thirds majority vote. Consistent with Robert’s Rules, Paul supporters reconvened in the parking lot to elect delegates. Paul supporters have now filed a lawsuit to ensure their delegates will be seated. Virginia: Doug Wead claims “at a district convention, they coaxed the Ron Paul delegation outside and then locked the door. The pastor of the church that was hosting the event was, himself, locked out.” U.S. Virgin Islands: Ron Paul won his

first caucus, only to have the GOP take down the straw vote results from their website showing Paul the victor with 29% over Romney’s 26% and replaced with a note from the party claiming Romney won because he won more delegates. Paul’s Official Campaign Blogger, Jack Hunter, explains how every other contest determined the victor by the straw vote, except the one straw vote Paul won. Alabama: An inexplicable gap exists between Paul’s popular vote count and his delegate vote count. This is odd because voters choose both on the same day and on the same ballot. Alabama Republican Party rules state that voters can only vote for one candidate and then must choose between his delegates. Statewide, Paul received only about one-third as many votes as his delegates. This means voters chose another candidate, but selected Paul’s delegates. No other candidate’s totals showed a similar pattern. Louisiana: Ben Swann reports a clash between the old Louisiana State GOP leadership and newlyelected leaders who support Paul. Old Chairman, Roger Villere, angered attendees with last-minute rule changes the night before the convention. At the start of the convention, Villere attempted to recognize the former Chair of the Rules Committee, who had been voted out the night before. When new Chair, Alex Helwig, rose to address the delegation; Villere instructed security (comprised of off-duty Shreveport Police) to remove him. They arrested him for trespassing and broke several of his fingers. Next, an overwhelming majority elected a new Convention Chair, Paul supporter Alex Helwig. Members then turned their chairs to face Helwig, with their backs to Villere. In desperation, Villere instructed the police officers to remove the duly-elected Herford. They did so and dislocated his hip in the process, sending him to the emergency room. The reconvened group followed state party rules and went on to elect a majority of Paul delegates, which the state party later replaced with its own slate of Romney delegates. The Paul campaign has appealed to the RNC, but it is unlikely that the RNC will reinstate the Paul delegates. Oregon: A YouTube video shows establishment Republicans in Congressional District 4 attempting to steal the ballot box and leave the premises when it became apparent the Ron Paul supporters were in the majority. Paul supporter is chased away from the ballots and claims he was accosted by an establishment party member. Wisconsin: MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell reports Romney violated state campaign laws by bribing voters with free subs. In other states, Paul supporters claim vote-flipping occurred with electronic voting machines. Once about 40% of votes are reported, there is typically little variation in the final numbers. However on several occasions, at about 40% Romney’s trajectory “flipped” with the leader, which was often Paul. Austin Election Judge, Anne Beckett, has come forth publicly to claim she witnessed this firsthand. 13) FUKUSHIMA REACTOR 4 MAY HAVE COLLAPSED – According to Japanese activists and independent reporters, Reactor 4 collapsed into itself and footage of Tepco demolishing it has surfaced. Furthermore, all four containment units are melt-throughs – not melt-downs – and will continue to burn for the next 12 billion years. No containment unit can be built, and the Japanese can't even get a robot near the buildings because the radiation fries the electronics. Even though suicide crews continue to work on the reactors, no solution has come forward. Long story short, a containment unit housing 50 years of spent uranium rods tumbled into the wreckage of Reactor 4. If it cracks open, all life on earth dies. Hooray! Just keep playing video games and watching grown men beat the shit out of each other in cages on pay per view. Otherwise, info via: 14) 35 SECRET WARS SCHEDULED FOR AFRICA – The United States Army will be deploying troops to nearly three-dozen African nations in 2013. Soldiers based out of Fort Riley, Kansas’ 2nd Brigade, 1st Infantry Division will begin training in March 2013 in order to prepare for a project that will send troops to as many as 35 African nations. Citing a growing threat from extremist groups, including those with ties to al-Qaeda, the Department of Defense is hoping to install American soldiers overseas in order to prepare local troops there for any future crises as tensions escalate. DoD sources with insider knowledge told the Washington Post that US troops would soon be en route to the nation of Mali in order to thwart the emerging threat of Islamic extremists, including al-Qaeda aligned

insurgents. With the latest news from the Pentagon, though, Mali will be just one of many African nations hosting US troops in the coming year. According to the Associated Press, soldiers would be sent overseas in 2013 to assist “only with” [snicker, snicker] training and equipping efforts, and are not necessarily permitted to participate in military operations. Should the Pentagon ask the troops to engage in battle, however, the secretary of defense could sign off on an order that would allow as much. "If they want them for (military) operations, the brigade is our first sourcing solution because they're prepared," Gen. David Rodriguez, the head of U.S. Army Forces Command, tells the AP. "But that has to go back to the secretary of defense to get an execute order." US troops will also head specifically to Libya, Sudan, Algeria and Niger in order to prepare for any advances from al-Qaeda linked groups. Americans will also train and equip forces in Kenya and Somalia, reportedly, in order to stand up to al-Shabab militants. Despite the troops being deployed to more than half of the countries in Africa, though, the AP reports that Uncle Sam will try to avoid giving the impression that the United States is leaving a substantial footprint across the continent. Sources speaking with the AP say that the United States has already prepared nearly 100 different exercises and training programs to conduct with African troops during 2013. 15) NSA WHISTLEBLOWER WILLIAM BINNEY COMES CLEAN – The FBI records the emails of nearly all US citizens, including members of congress, according to NSA whistleblower William Binney. In an interview with RT, he warned that the government can use this information against anyone. Binney, one of the best mathematicians and code breakers in the history of the National Security Agency, resigned in 2001. He claimed he no longer wanted to be associated with alleged violations of the Constitution, such as how the FBI engages in widespread and pervasive surveillance through powerful devices called 'Naris.' Apparently, the government is storing ever email it can completely unencrypted for future use against whomever it wishes. This year, Binney received the Callaway award, an annual prize that recognizes those who champion constitutional rights and American values at great risk to their personal or professional lives. The following are quotes from an interview conducted with Russia Today: William Binney: “...the FBI has access to the data collected, which is basically the emails of virtually everybody in the country... All the congressional members are on the surveillance too, no one is excluded. They are all included. So, yes, this can happen to anyone. If they become a target for whatever reason – they are targeted by the government, the government can go in, or the FBI, or other agencies of the government, they can go into their database, pull all that data collected on them over the years, and we analyze it all. So, we have to actively analyze everything they’ve done for the last 10 years at least... The Naris device, if it takes in the entire line, so it takes in all the data. In fact they advertised they can process the lines at session rates, which means 10-gigabit lines. I forgot the name of the device (it’s not the Naris) – the other one does it at 10 gigabits. That’s why they're building Bluffdale [database facility], because they have to have more storage, because they can’t figure out what’s important, so they are just storing everything there. So, emails are going to be stored there in the future, but right now stored in different places around the country. But it is being collected – and the FBI has access to it... My line is in declarations in a court about the 18-T facility in San Francisco, that documented the NSA room inside that AST&T facility, where they had Naris devices to collect data off the fiber optic lines inside the United States. So, that’s kind of a powerful device, that would collect everything it was being sent. It could collect on the order over of 100 billion 1,000-character emails a day. One device... I don’t think they are filtering [emails]. They are just storing it. I think it’s just a matter of selecting when they want it. So, if they want to target you, they would take your attributes, go into that database and pull out all your data. I believe I’ve been on [the NSA's target list] for quite a few years. So I keep telling them everything I think of them in my email. So that when they want to read it they’ll understand what I think of them. RT: You blew the whistle on the agency when George W. Bush was the president. With President Obama in office, in your opinion, has anything changed at the agency, in the surveillance program? In what direction is this

administration moving? WB: The change is it’s getting worse. They are doing more. He is supporting the building of the Bluffdale facility, which is over two billion dollars they are spending on storage room for data. That means that they are collecting a lot more now and need more storage for it. That facility by my calculations that I submitted to the court for the Electronic Frontiers Foundation against NSA would hold on the order of 5 zettabytes of data. Just that current storage capacity is being advertised on the web that you can buy. And that’s not talking about what they have in the near future... They are violating the foundation of this entire country. Why this entire government was formed? It’s founded with the Constitution and the rights were given to the people in the country under that Constitution. They are in violation of that. And under executive order 13526, section 1.7 – you can not classify information to just cover up a crime, which this is, and that was signed by President Obama. Also President Bush signed it earlier as an executive order, a very similar one. If any of this comes into Supreme Court and they rule it unconstitutional, then the entire house of cards of the government falls... The government is doing the best they can to try to keep it out of court. And, of course, we are trying to do the best we can to get into court. So, we decided it deserves a ruling from the Supreme Court. Ultimately the court is supposed to protect the Constitution. All these people in the government take an oath to defend the Constitution. And they are not living up to the oath of office.” 16) OPERATION FAST AND FURIOUS – With Operation Fast and Furious the CIA (blaming the ATF publicly) gave 2,000 automatic weapons to dangerous Mexican drug cartels to supposedly track the guns as to arrest those cartels. Sound fair? Well then, why were they given to these cartels WITHOUT ANY TRACKING DEVICES OR SERIAL NUMBERS?? The agency made no attempt to interdict them, and these guns were used in the murders of Border Patrol Agents and hundreds of Mexican citizens. Univision News found 57 unreported firearms from Fast and Furious and three of these weapons were used in a massacre on January 30, 2010. Twenty hit men surrounded a birthday party filled with high school and college students in Villas de Salvarcar, Ciudad Juarez. They opened fire on the party guests. Fourteen were murdered and twelve more were wounded. The assassins were hired by the Mexican cartel La Linea. The most well known case is the murder of prominent Mexican attorney Mario Gonzalez Rodriguez, brother of then Chihuahua Attorney General Patricia Gonzalez Rodriguez. He was kidnapped, forced to “confess” on tape that his sister worked with the Juarez cartel. They found his body in a shallow grave on November 5, 2009. Two of the AK-47s connected to his death were linked to Fast and Furious. Washington Times journalists Robert Farago and Ralph Dixon cite a “CIA insider” to make the claim that Operation Fast and Furious was a Central Intelligence Agency-orchestrated program to arm the Sinaloa drug cartel, a group that was also given the green light to fly tons of cocaine into the United States. In congressional testimony, William Newell, former ATF special agent in charge of the Phoenix Field Division, testified that the Internal Revenue Service, Drug Enforcement Administration and Immigration and Customs Enforcement were “full partners” in Operation Fast and Furious. Mr. Newell’s list left out the most important player: the CIA. According to a CIA insider, the agency had a strong hand in creating, orchestrating and exploiting Operation Fast and Furious. The program, with its designated cover of tracking where guns went so drug lords who purchased them could later be arrested downstream, was actually a deliberate effort to prevent the Los Zetas drug cartel from staging a successful coup d’etat against the government of Felipe Calderon by arming rival gang Sinaloa, according to the Times writers, a relationship that extended to “(allowing) the Sinaloas to fly a 747 cargo plane packed with cocaine into American airspace – unmolested.” The CIA made sure the trade wasn’t one-way. It persuaded the ATF to create Operation Fast and Furious – a “no strings attached” variation of the agency’s previous firearms sting. By design, the ATF operation armed the Mexican government’s preferred cartel on the street level near the American border, where the Zetas are most active,” states the report. The notion that Fast and Furious was used as a cover through which to arm the the Sinaloa cartel would explain why the feds showed little interest in following up where guns ended up once they left the United States. The Obama administration and the

ATF claim that the Fast and Furious program was part of a sting operation to catch leading Mexican drug runners, and yet it’s admitted that the government stopped tracking the firearms as soon as they reached the border ( ). Back in April, Jesus Vicente Zambada Niebla, the “logistical coordinator” for the Sinaloa drug-trafficking gang that was responsible for purchasing the CIA torture jet that crashed with four tons on cocaine on board back in 2007 told the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois in Chicago that he had been working as a U.S. government asset for years. Niebla was allowed to import “multi-ton quantities of cocaine” into the U.S. as a result of his working relationship with the FBI, Homeland Security, the U.S. Department of Justice and the Drug Enforcement Administration. But the notion that Fast and Furious was solely an effort to isolate the Los Zetas cartel isn’t consistent with the fact that one of the gang’s kingpins recently told Mexican federal police that the group purchased its weapons directly from U.S. government officials inside America. “They are bought in the U.S. The buyers (on the U.S. side of the border) have said in the past that sometimes they would acquire them from the U.S. Government itself,” Rejón Aguilar told police. Even after the revelations surrounding the program became public, the ATF cited the trafficking of guns to Mexico as justification for a new regulation that has led to ATF intimidation of both gun sellers and purchasers, a policy which arrived months after President Obama told gun control advocate Sarah Brady that his administration was working “under the radar” to sneak attack the second amendment. [ps thanks again to Infowars, who I just plagiarized with the zest of Shakespeare] 17) GMO NIGHTMARE STUDY – The most thorough study of Genetically Modified Organisms ever conducted concluded that eating genetically modified corn (GM corn) and consuming trace levels of Monsanto's Roundup chemical fertilizer caused rats to develop horrifying tumors, widespread organ damage, and premature death. That's the conclusion of a shocking new study that looked at the longterm effects of consuming Monsanto's genetically modified corn. The study had been deemed "the most thorough research ever published into the health effects of GM food crops and the herbicide Roundup on rats." News of the horrifying findings is spreading like wildfire across the internet, with even the mainstream media seemingly in shock over the photos of rats with multiple grotesque tumors. "Monsanto Roundup weedkiller and GM maize implicated in 'shocking' new cancer study" wrote The Grocery, a popular UK publication. ( It reported, "Scientists found that rats exposed to even the smallest amounts, developed mammary tumors and severe liver and kidney damage as early as four months in males, and seven months for females." The Daily Mail reported, "Fresh row over GM foods as French study claims rats fed the controversial crops suffered tumors." ( It goes on to say: "The animals on the GM diet suffered mammary tumors, as well as severe liver and kidney damage. The researchers said 50% of males and 70% of females died prematurely, compared with only 30% and 20% in the control group." The study, led by GillesEric Seralini of the University of Caen, was the first ever study to examine the long-term (lifetime) effects of eating GMOs. No such studies of this nature were ever conducted before GM corn was approved for widespread use by the USDA & FDA. Up to 50% of males and 70% of females suffered premature death. Rats that drank trace amounts of Roundup (at levels legally allowed in the water supply) had a 200% to 300% increase in large tumors. Rats fed GM corn and traces of Roundup suffered severe organ damage including liver damage and kidney damage. The study fed these rats NK603, the Monsanto variety of GM corn that's grown across North America and widely fed to animals and humans. This is the same corn that's in your breakfast cereal, tortillas and snack chips. 18) CIA PLANE CRASHES WITH FOUR TONS OF COCAINE – Unfortunately for the CIA one of their planes apparently crash landed in Mexico after running out of Jet fuel en route to the USA, and the Mexican authorities found 4 TONS OF COCAINE on board. This came just 17 months after an

American-registered DC9 airliner was busted with 5.5 tons of cocaine. This new incident revolves around a plane that was an American-registered jet owned by a dummy front company called “Donna Blue Aircraft Inc” of Coconut Beach, Florida. FAA records show the company owned the Gulfstream II business jet (N987SA) which crash-landed in Mexico’s Yucatan. If you want to visit in person, you'll find the company’s listed address to be an empty office suite with a blank sign out front – Florida Dept. of Corporations, 4811 Lyons Technology Parkway #8 in Coconut Beach, FL.

We're talking 42 TRILLION DOLLARS here, laundered. And when the lawsuit was announecd the only person who stepped up to run press was CNBC VP Kevin Krim. The next day, his children were murdered and the story was pulled. First they said it was the Nanny, that she killed the kids and then somehow slit her own throat. And then she was found to be alive, still. And then she woke up from her coma and started talking. Anmd then the story just vanished. So here is what we know for sure. Late October the financial news organization CNBC gave mainstream attention to the largest money laundering and racketeering lawsuit in United States History, in which “Banksters” and their U.S. racketeering partners are being accused of laundering of 43 trillion dollars worth of ill gotten gains. The lawsuit is said to involve officials located in the highest offices of government and the financial sector. Within hours the original page for the article was taken down, and CNBC senior vice president Kevin Krim received news that his children were killed under very suspicious circumstances. It seems that the murder happened first and then the page was removed later. According to mainstream accounts the children’s nanny is responsible for the murders, allegedly stabbing both children. However, those same mainstream news sources report the highly unlikely story that the nanny slit her own throat just after committing the homicides. Police have released very little information and although a wider plot has not been officially implicated, it seems very possible that these murders are a show of force against the press organization for releasing such damning information about the most powerful people in the world. Here is some more information about the lawsuit the Wall Street Journal: “In the District Court lawsuit, Spire Law Group, LLP — on behalf of home owner across the Country and New York taxpayers, as well as under other taxpayer recompense laws — has expanded its mass tort action into federal court in Brooklyn, New York, seeking to halt all foreclosures nationwide pending the return of the $43 trillion ($43,000,000,000,000.00) by the “Banksters” and their co-conspirators, seeking an audit of the Fed and audits of all the “bailout programs” by an independent receiver such as Neil Barofsky, former Inspector General of the TARP program who has stated that none of the TARP money and other “bailout money” advanced from the Treasury has ever been repaid despite protestations to the contrary by the Defendants as well as similar protestations by President Obama and the Obama Administration both publicly on national television and more privately to the United States Congress. Because the Obama Administration has failed to pursue any of the “Banksters” criminally, and indeed is actively borrowing monies for Mr. Obama’s campaign from these same “Banksters” to finance its political aspirations, the national group of plaintiff home owners has been forced to now expand its lawsuit to include racketeering, money laundering and intentional violations of the Iranian Nations Sanctions and Embargo Act by the national banks included among the “Bankster” Defendants. “ Some of the alleged conspirators are Attorney General Holder, Assistant Attorney General Tony West, the brother in law of Defendant California Attorney General Kamala Harris, Jon Corzine (former New Jersey Governor), Robert Rubin (former Treasury Secretary and Bankster), Timothy Geitner, Treasury Secretary, Vikram Pandit (recently resigned and disgraced Chairman of the Board of Citigroup), Valerie Jarrett (a Senior White House Advisor), Anita Dunn (a former “communications director” for the

Obama Administration), Robert Bauer (husband of Anita Dunn and Chief Legal Counsel for the Obama Re-election Campaign), as well as the “Banksters” themselves, and their affiliates and conduits. Moving on, these are the facts. Make of them what you will – July 2009: Former Special Inspector General of TARP Bail-Outs Neil Barofsky goes before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, chaired by US Representative Darrell Issa, and projects that a series of bailouts and bank rescues could end up costing the federal government as much as $23 trillion. The US budget for one year is about $4 trillion. The entire accumulated US national debt is about $16 trillion. journalist Glenn Greenwald calls Barofsky "“easily one of the most impressive and courageous political officials in Washington.” Barofsky maintains to this day that, contrary to popular misconceptions, the banks have not paid back their bail-out money, nor have any intention of doing so. May 2010: Iceland begins jailing and suing bankers for negligence and malfeasance which endangers the economy, rather than bailing them out. Icelandic economy now outperforming EU. Arrests continue into 2011. October 25, 2012: Blogger Sherrie Questioning All reports that CNBC has posted a controversial press release from the Spire Law Group announcing in headline "Major Banks, Governmental Officials and Their Comrade Capitalists Targets of Spire Law Group, LLP's Racketeering and Money Laundering Lawsuit Seeking Return of $43 Trillion to the United States Treasury." The action accuses the "banksters" of racketeering, stealing from the American people, and money laundering. Lawsuit names Obama administration officials such as Attorney General Eric Holder, the brother in law of Defendant California Attorney General Kamala Harris, Jon Corzine (former New Jersey Governor), Treasury Secretary Timothy Geitner, and Senior White House Advisor Valerie Jarrett, Anita Dunn (a former "communications director" for the Obama Administration), Robert Bauer (husband of Anita Dunn and Chief Legal Counsel for the Obama Re-election Campaign.) October 26, 2012: The New York Times reports that the wife of Kevin Krim, Senior VP for Digital Communications, in charge of CNBC online content, find two of her three children murdered in the bathroom, along with the nanny who is unconscious with a slash wound to her throat. The nanny, Yoselyn Ortega, 50, is charged with killing the children and then trying to kill herself. She survives, but cannot speak due to her wound. NY Times states that: “A mother returned home to her luxury Upper West Side apartment on Thursday evening to find two of her children, a 2-year-old boy and a 6-yearold girl, fatally stabbed in a bathtub by the family’s nanny, the authorities said. The nanny herself lay on the floor, near a bloody knife, with an apparently self-inflicted slash to her own throat.” October 27, 2012: CNN runs the story of the child murders with key details changed by police. The story is now that the nanny began stabbing herself upon discovery by the mother. CNN now reports: “The New York nanny suspected in the killings of two children in her care began knifing herself when their mother entered the bathroom and saw the bodies in the bathtub, police said Friday. "We believe now that the nanny began to stab herself as the woman entered the room," Police Commissioner Ray Kelly told reporters in a revised account of Thursday's events. "We initially thought that had already been done but now information is coming out that she did it as the mother entered the bathroom." There is speculation that the mother would be subject to blackmail in order to spare the life of her remaining child. Self-inflicted throat-slashing is among the rarest of all types of suicide methods among women. October 28, 2012: The Wall Street Journal posts the same press release taken down by CNBC. 20) COP CARS TO BE REPLACED WITH DRONES BY 2025 – Law enforcement agencies across the US are lining up to be among the first to use drones to serve and protect, but unmanned vehicles are likely to replace the traditional cop cruiser in just a few short years. In places like California, Texas and Washington State, police officers in recent weeks have intensified their demands for surveillance drones, a necessary addition they say to their arsenal of tools to help thwart crime. The Federal Aviation Administration has yet to finalize plans to put drones in US airspace, but by the end of the decade as many as 30,000 UAVs are expected to be soaring through the sky. By 2025, those drones are predicted to take the place of the police patrol car as unmanned vehicles operated by cops are being considered a

likely inclusion on our roads of tomorrow. Leading up to this year’s Los Angeles Auto Show, carmakers were asked to put together prototypes showing what they envision highway patrol vehicles to look like in the year 2025. The entries, from big manufacturers like BWM and Honda, are largely based on the still primitive drone technology that is used in military and surveillance missions overseas. The car show’s organizers asked designers to develop a vehicle that “should empower highway patrol officers to meet new demands and effectively both ‘protect and serve’ the public while considering not just enforcement needs but emission concerns, population growth and transportation infrastructure.” According to the New York Times, drone devices are far and away the popular choice. “By coincidence or destiny, designers at several companies came up with concepts for robotic, autonomously driven vehicles on ground, water and air. These future police cruisers — usually presented as story boards rather than actual vehicles — recall today’s Predator and Global Hawk drones, stars of the antiinsurgency efforts. They may give new meaning to those signs that read ‘Speed limit enforced by aircraft,’” writes the Times’ Phil Patton. In the prototype unveiled by BMW, a larger “ePatrol” vehicle is equipped with up to three individual drones that can be deployed to follow suspected criminals in high-speed chases across busy highways. Once one of the smaller can catch up with a targeted car, those individual drones would then be able to send an impulse to startle the driver. One of those smaller drones would be able to fly on its own, and the other two unmanned vehicles could roll on two wheels through busy roads. At Honda, designers there envision a similar concept: a large all-electric patrol car that could dispatch at the drop of a hat unmanned motorcycles to catch up with criminals and maintain coverage at high speeds for long distances. In addition to the BMW E-Patrol (Human-Drone Pursuit Vehicle) and Honda’s CHP Drone Squad, Subaru also sent into the car show designs for the SHARC, or Subaru Highway Automated Response Concept. PSFK online describes it as “an autonomous, zeroemission patrol vehicle” meant to “augment reduced highway patrol budgets by providing remote 3D video to officers who can control the vehicle via goggles and voice command.” [FYI this is an edit of a Russia Today piece // read here: ] 21) RUSSIA DISCOVERS TEN TIMES THE AMOUNT OF ALL DIAMONDS ON EARTH – Russia just put the world in checkmate by being able to completely destroy the worth of diamonds in one fell swoop. Discovered beneath that giant 62 mile wide asteroid crater of the Siberian landscape in the 1970's but not revealed until last year is THREE TRILLION CARATS OF CLASS A DIAMONDS which is TEN TIMES THE AMOUNT OF ALL DIAMONDS ON EARTH. And Russia is about to start tapping into this huge resource of diamonds that could supply the world market for the next 3,000 years. Scientists estimate there are 'trillions of carats' lying beneath a 35million-year-old asteroid crater in Siberia - more than ten times the global stockpile. The Kremlin has known about the reserves under the 62-mile-wide impact zone since the 1970s. But it has kept it a secret until now because it was already reaping big profits in what back then was a heavily controlled market. Government officials have finally given scientists from the nearby Novosibirsk Institute of Geology and Mineralogy permission to lift the lid on the crater's hidden gems. The official news agency, ITAR-Tass, said the diamonds at the site, known as Popigai Astroblem, are 'twice as hard' as the usual gemstones, making them ideal for industrial and scientific uses. If you haven't caught on, this means that Russia may actually be the first country able to make dimaond backed currency, which was a fantasy idea beforehand. Furthermore, anyone who's been paying attention know they want to make their own Yen/Ruble partnership currency. Irregardless, this spells out the looming collapse of the diamond trade, which is a total apocalypse for “Old Money” wealth.

* * * In closing, now that you know the awful things which I know, we can also be real enough to comment the usual – that The President is really a figurehead, if not a puppet, and his power is limited. While that may be true to an extent, it does not excuse the fact that he can wave his magic Obama wand and pass Executive Order 13603. He has power, real power if he so chooses to exercise it. However, he exercises it primarily for the power elite and the police state. As the first president of color he made the choice to smash the aspirations of Martin Luther King Jr and replace “I have a Dream” with “I have a Drone.” The hope was hype and the dream is dead, and the future rests with you dear reader. So tonight, as you watch the banksters' slick choice read his phony SOTU speech, just remember there are hundreds of FEMA camps ready to house you for speaking up. Remember that he won't mention any of what I listed above, but you will definitely hear that same corny line about the energies of the future like solar, wind, clean coal & bio-fuels – probably in that same old tired order. Just go back to sleep America, because it's mighty painful to be conscious. ...solidarity... Ryan Bartek // 2.12.2013
