VISIONS-PLANS FOR THREE WORLD WARS: Albert Pike – 33rd Degree Freemason [Illuminati] “Created the Ku Klux Klan”

Albert Pike received a vision, which he described in a letter that he wrote to Mazzini, dated August 15, 1871.

This letter graphically outlined plans for three world wars that were seen as necessary to bring about the One World Order, and we can marvel at how accurately it has predicted events that have already taken place.

Following are apparently extracts of the letter, showing how Three World Wars have been planned for many generations.

***

“The First World War must be brought about in order to permit the Illuminati to overthrow the power of the Czars in Russia and of making that country a fortress of atheistic Communism. The divergences caused by the “agentur” (agents) of the Illuminati between the British and Germanic Empires will be used to foment this war. At the end of the war, Communism will be built and used in order to destroy the other governments and in order to weaken the religions.” 2

Students of history will recognize that the political alliances of England on one side and Germany on the other, forged between 1871 and 1898 by Otto von Bismarck, co-conspirator of Albert Pike, were instrumental in bringing about the First World War.

***

“The Second World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences between the Fascists and the political Zionists.

This war must be brought about so that Nazism is destroyed and that the political Zionism be strong enough to institute a sovereign state of Israel in Palestine.

During the Second World War, International Communism must become strong enough in order to balance Christendom, which would be then restrained and held in check until the time when we would need it for the final social cataclysm.” 3

After this Second World War, Communism was made strong enough to begin taking over weaker governments.

In 1945, at the Potsdam Conference between Truman, Churchill, and Stalin, a large portion of Europe was simply handed over to Russia, and on the other side of the world, the aftermath of the war with Japan helped to sweep the tide of Communism into China.

(Readers who argue that the terms Nazism and Zionism were not known in 1871 should remember that the Illuminati invented both these movements. In addition, Communism as an ideology, and as a coined phrase, originates in France during the Revolution. In 1785, Restif coined the phrase four years before revolution broke out.

Restif and Babeuf, in turn, were influenced by Rousseau – as was the most famous conspirator of them all, Adam Weishaupt.)

***

“The Third World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences caused by the “agentur” of the “Illuminati” between the political Zionists and the leaders of Islamic World.

The war must be conducted in such a way that Islam (the Moslem Arabic World) and political Zionism (the State of Israel) mutually destroy each other.

Meanwhile the other nations, once more divided on this issue will be constrained to fight to the point of complete physical, moral, spiritual and economical exhaustion…We shall unleash the Nihilists and the atheists, and we shall provoke a formidable social cataclysm which in all its horror will show clearly to the nations the effect of absolute atheism, origin of savagery and of the most bloody turmoil.

Then everywhere, the citizens, obliged to defend themselves against the world minority of revolutionaries, will exterminate those destroyers of civilization, and the multitude, disillusioned with Christianity, whose deistic spirits will from that moment be without compass or direction, anxious for an ideal, but without knowing where to render its adoration, will receive the true light through the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of Lucifer, brought finally out in the public view.

This manifestation will result from the general reactionary movement which will follow the destruction of Christianity and atheism, both conquered and exterminated at the same time.” 4

Since the terrorist attacks of Sept 11, 2001, world events, and in particular in the Middle East, show a growing unrest and instability between Modern Zionism and the Arabic World. This is completely in line with the call for a Third World War to be fought between the two, and their allies on both sides. This Third World War is still to come, and recent events show us that it is not far off.

‘OPIUM’ REAL REASON FOR AFGHANISTAN WAR: Why Pat Tillman Was Killed / CIA Suiciding US Soldiers Overseas For Bankers

The War on Terror is a sham. We are just here to guard Drugs for the CIA and Bankers. The American People need to be told.

Two days later Pat Tillman was dead. Executed by 3 shots to the forehead at close range, from a NATO Rifle.

If you are guarding (Opium) Poppy Fields, and you complain, you are “Suicided”

The Taliban Destroyed all the Poppy fields. It was corrupting their country and their youth.

This caused the US Bankers and New York Bankers, to lose $300 million a month in Drug Money.

The rumors are true. United States soldiers guard poppy fields in Afghanistan

Our soldiers are guarding poppy fields in Afghanistan. It’s no secret. Back in 2006, a friend of mine in the Army sent me pictures of British troops doing that exact same thing. Here is one of them:

And, opium isn’t the only drug our government is dealing in! Remember that CIA plane that went down over the Yucatan two years ago carrying 3.2 TONS OF COCAINE!? Allow me to refresh your memory:

Afghanistan opium poppy cultivation 1994-2007

The Taliban has almost eradicated the poppy fields. No sooner did the war begin and the poppy fields were reborn.

Even The Troops Are Waking Up. We are the “Real” Terrorists.

“Today, the drug movements and networks are controlled by the Americans and the hegemonic system and Afghans are acting as their agents…” But we knew this already…

I have had former students of mine who have served in Afghanistan tell me they have witnessed caravans of black SUVs driven by Americans dressed in civilian clothes, all giving the same name when questioned, pull up to the poppy fields the soldiers were guarding and remove large numbers of plants filling up the SUVs and driving away smiling and waving to the soldiers as they pulled away.

The soldiers know what is going on…

Official: US, NATO Now in Control of Narcotic Trade in Afghanistan

A senior Iranian judiciary official blasted the West’s performance in fighting drugs in Afghanistan, and stressed that the western states, particularly the US, are now in control of the drug trade in the war-torn country.

“Today, Afghans have no special influence in the issue of narcotics but the NATO and western states control drug production and dealings and are busy in this fields,” First Deputy Head of the Judiciary Ebrahim Raeesi said at a conference of the anti-drug police chiefs here in Tehran on Tuesday.

“Today, the drug movements and networks are controlled by the Americans and the hegemonic system and Afghans are acting as their agents,” Raeesi noted.

He blamed the western countries for Afghanistan’s deteriorating drug problems, and added, “They can prevent drug plantation and production through their capabilities in the short run but we are witnessing no action by these countries and drug production has rather found a new form due to their presence.”

The official blasted the western countries for the aggravating drug problem in Afghanistan, and described the huge increase in the production of narcotics in the war-torn country as “a crime against humanity”.

Earlier, an Afghan lawmaker had disclosed that the foreign forces deployed in Afghanistan are involved in the production and trafficking of illicit drugs in the country, adding that the British troops have even trained a number of experts for opium cultivation.

“As long as foreign forces are present in Afghanistan, the cultivation, production and trafficking of drugs will continue in the country,” Nasimeh Niazi told FNA in April.

Heroin-production labs in Helmand, which did not exist before the US-led war in Afghanistan, are now plentiful and work overtly, she added.

Eastern Iran borders Afghanistan, which is the world’s number one opium and drug producer. Iran’s geographical position has made the country a favorite transit corridor for drug traffickers who intend to smuggle their cargoes from Afghanistan to drug dealers in Europe.

Iran spends billions of dollars and has lost thousands of its police troops in the war against traffickers. Owing to its rigid efforts, Iran makes 85 percent of the world’s total opium seizures and has turned into the leading country in drug campaign.

Abuse of Our Military

By Rick Taylor

We should all thank our veterans and current servicemen and women for their service to our country. That is and always will be a “no-brainer”. But over the past several years, after studying what is really going on in the world, I think we can best serve our military, just as they serve us, by making absolutely sure that their mission is in the best interest of their/our country, and not special interest groups or international corporations.

If our country’s leaders really appreciated our military, they would not allow them to be so abused. When they use our military for nation building, international politics, and guarding poppy fields in Afghanistan, our military is abused. When whoever is in the White House sends our troops overseas to serve as United Nation “peacekeepers”, they abuse our military. When our military is sent off to war without a Declaration of War by Congress, our military is abused.

When our government can spend billions and even trillions of dollars for military bases and embassies in Iraq and now Afghanistan but cannot maintain safe and sanitary veteran’s hospitals, our military is abused. When our military is forced to take untested vaccines, that make most of them sick, they are abused. When certain government and military officials have interest in companies that sell these multi-million dollar vaccine contracts to the military and thus profit enormously, they abuse our military. When our government allows our military to be exposed to chemicals and the residue from depleted uranium munitions, they abuse our military. When our troops later become veterans and our government often refuses to treat, or even test them for illnesses caused by vaccines, chemicals, and depleted uranium, they abuse our military.

When our supposed enemy, the Taliban, receives American tax dollars, in the form of protection money from companies that bring supplies to our troops, our military is abused. You can call it the cost of doing business, paying off the enemy, so they will let the supplies go through. When this money keeps the Taliban in business, our military is not only confused but abused. When the Taliban is seen being ferried around the country in helicopters supplied by Western companies, our military is abused. If the Taliban is hiding out Al Qaeda and Osama, our enemies, what in the hell are they doing receiving our money?

When there is nearly unanimous agreement from our current political class that our military forces should be kept in the Middle East and now Central Asia as an occupational force year after year, decade after decade, they are abused. To cancel their retirement and extend their duty beyond original contracts is abuse. Whey they reduce the standards of recruits in order to accommodate even felony criminals and foreign nationals, our military is abused. When they send our National Guard off to defend the borders of Iraq, while leaving our own borders open to potential terrorists, drug smuggling, and criminals, they are abused. I could go on and on and on.

The purpose of our military is not to insure the profits or protect the operations of U.S corporations operating in foreign countries. They should not die for KBR, Halliburton, the Carlysle Group, Exxon-Mobil, British Petroleum, Blackwater, Monsanto, etc. I know my critics will say that our military is keeping us safe from islamo-fascists. Is this really true? Have you ever stopped to think about the fact that our borders are open and have been, like, forever? If you were the president and you told us that the enemy hates our freedoms and wants to kill us, wouldn’t you first close the damn door to the country. TSA can strip search granny at the airport, but over one million people a year cross our border and no one in our Homeland Security cares. Perhaps there is a good reason they don’t care.

I will come out and say it. Peace in the world is not the purpose of the U.S. military. Our military’s purpose is to defend the people and property of the United States of America. And the people and property are at home. Anything other than that is an abuse of our military.

Legendary Marine Corp General Smedley Butler, author of “War is a Racket”, said that there are only two things we should fight for. “The defense of our homes and the Bill of Rights”. Anything other than that is an abuse of our military.

***

The backtracking, the misinformation, the deliberate withholding of documents that required a FOIA request in the first place, and now the demotion of a general involved in the “investigation” – all point to a cover-up of massive proportions.

Tillman had been keeping a journal since the age of 16, and he took it with him to Afghanistan. Two days after his demise, the journal, along with most of his personal property, mysteriously vanished.

Adding another layer of murk, the White House is claiming “executive privilege” in refusing to release documents dealing with Tillman’s death.

But who is being protected?

First they told us Tillman was killed by hostile fire fighting for Bush’s crusade to export “democracy” to Afghanistan. Then they said he was felled by “friendly fire,” i.e., by his own troops. These new revelations suggest – although they don’t conclusively prove – that this fire may not have been all that friendly.

What I want to know is this: how could someone who was apparently killed from 10 yards away – and was hit by three bullets in very close proximity on the forehead – be a victim of “friendly fire” from 90 yards away, as claimed?

All of which raises another, increasingly troubling question: Who killed Pat Tillman – and why?

$$$$$$

ISRAEL MURDERS PAT TILLMAN TO AVOID HIM BECOMING AN ANTI-WAR ICON FOR IRAQ AND AFGANISTAN

DID PAT TILLMAN REACH OUT FROM THE GRAVE?

General McChrystal issued a report siting enemy action for the death but later sent out a report indicating possible friendly fire as the actual cause.

Chris Matthews of Hardall, on July 26, 2007 cited the killing as “fragging” a form of intentional homocide. Autopsy results indicated no possible rationale for Cpl. Tillman’s death other than a premediated murder, with multiple 5.56mm bullets striking the Ranger in a tight pattern.

These were carefully aimed shots fired from only a few feet away, no other explanation is possible although many were given, and supported by the Army. The doctors who examined the wounds said “murder” but the Army had another agenda, one General McChrystal signed onto, one of deception.

What began to come out was that every word released by the Army under the watchful authority of General McChrystal was a lie, not just the murder being depicted as “enemy action” but every detail of the continually changing stories describing what now looks to be a political assassination. Cpl. Tillman had begun to openly discuss views “unfavorable” to the continuation of the war.

Tillman was not the “George Bush” crusader robot he was supposed to be. He had disappointed. He was going to have to pay.

With the presence of a sniper team nearby, a fact previously withheld, the source of the virtual “firing squad” salvo that killed Tillman was obvious. What is also obvious is that Tillman was murdered at the direct orders of the highest authorities of the White House.

One “dead Tillman” talking peace could have been worth a thousand “live Tillmans” in the field, if all of those threatened and coerced had only kept silent.

Whatever Stanley McChrystal does with his life, panding to neocon extremists, the “book” and the tours that go with it or real retirement, the murder of Pat Tillman will follow him to the end of his days.

***

ADMIN NOTE: Some think the War in Afghanistan was for a Pipeline. Except that the Bush Administration almost had a deal with the Taliban, up to the day of our attack. He was just stringing them along, because he knew the 9/11 Attacks were coming and he really wanted the “Drug Trade”, which the Taliban hated with a religious passion.

Afghanistan Opium Fields and US Military Suicides and Assassinations:

Some brief history of US military intervention in Aghanistan

Muslim Terrorist Apparatus Was Created By US Intelligence
http://emperors‐clothes.com/interviews/brz.htm

The Muslim terrorist apparatus was created by US intelligence as a geopolitical weapon. American Central Intelligence organized, trained, funded and armed the dis‐united, Afghan, tribal freedom-fighters under one banner, the Taliban, in order to resist Russian infiltration into the Middle Eastern axis‐of‐oil region (and opium production region).

Once the Russian threat was eliminated, the Taliban wished for legitimacy in their own Afghani national affairs. ‘Corporate’ American domination was unacceptable to the united Afghan freedom-fighters. Prior to 9/11, the US Administration had threatened the Taliban because they were reluctant to grant complete control of their homeland to ‘corporate’ rule. The Taliban were told that submitting to US Administration plans for the region would ”bring a carpet of gold”, but resistance would ”bring a carpet of bombs”.

Afghanistan’s poppy fields – The opium trillion dollar/year windfall
The oil companies get 80 dollars a barrel….the heroin/opium trade sells a barrel of Afghani opium for 19 million dollars wholsesale.

You figure when the US military is preventing the Taliban, Russians and local Afghan tribal lords access to the poppy fields, and the US military is protecting those same poppy fields….then guess what, whoever is pulling the strings of the US military is bringing in 19 million dollars per barrel of opium sold!!

And that is only wholesale. Street value is above 60 million dollars a barrel.

Tens of dozens of books have been written about the international drug trade, U.S. Government and military involvement as well as on some of the world’s most aristocratic families. Our own government may involve itself from time to time in protecting these people. Remember the huge drug cache found behind the propeller of one of former Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin’s freighters? No usual sting operation was set up to catch those who would come to make the pick up. Just a press announcement to warn the criminals involved.

Canadians pay a dreadful price because of this. Our young forced into prostitution or crime to support their habit as well as too many people dying on our streets. Thousands of ruined Canadian lives. We can thank many of the West’s most respected elite for this trade. They make such obscene amounts of money in this trade this is an extremely dangerous topic and our police & media are aware of this. Justified fear keeps them silent except on the small people selling their dimes.

Sometimes a significant Asian drug lord is caught and exposed for their crime of being in competition with those who are really behind this evil.

EISENHOWER’S DEATH CAMPS – The Last Dirty Secret Of World War Two – Saturday Night Magazine: WAS THERE REALLY A JUDAIC HOLOCAUST?

Scanned images of the text of the cover story published in the September 1989 issue of Saturday Night describes Eisenhower’s barbarism. Here is the truth.

Bacque tells the truth about how Eisenhower murdered thousands of German prisoners of war AFTER the surrender. Many of those starving soldiers and piles of dead bodies you have seen in atrocity photos were NOT Jews, they were Germans.

Don’t argue with me, read the book. General George Patton (who released all his German prisoners) wrote in 1945 that Eisenhower was using “practically Gestapo methods” in torturing and killing German POWs.

In August 1944 Dwight D. Eisenhower (who in the early 1960s ordered the assassination of Patrice Lamumba) and Henry C. Morgenthau came up with the Morgenthau Plan to inflict collective punishment upon the German people following the end of the Second World War.

This was, basically, a plan to starve millions of Germans, mostly citizens, to death.

Although the plan was officially cancelled, it was in fact implemented. Between 1945 and 1953 it is estimated between 9 to 15 million ethnic Germans were killed, mainly civilians.

(Also read, An Eye for an Eye: The Untold Story of Jewish Revenge Against Germans in 1945 by John Sack, and statistical and documentary evidence presented in, Did Six Million Really Die? by Richard Verrall).

(Based on an Article from: “THE TRUTH AT LAST” Journal. P.O. Box 1211, Marietta, Georgia 30061., USA).

The Soviet-Bolshevik Holocaust of Christians:

Russian Kulak Farmers (1928-1930) – 15 million exterminated. Ukranian Farmers (1930-1933) – 7 Million exterminated. Russian Political Prisoners (1919-1949) – 12 million exterminated. Total peoples murdered by Lenin and Stalin – 34 million.

But there were more: several hundred thousand Russians – a staggering number – took up arms against the Soviet Union in the years following the German invasion in June 1941. They were betrayed by the Allies at Yalta and murdered by the Judaeo-Communist Soviet.

When Western archives were at last available to historians, two remarkable books quickly appeared: The Last Secret, 1974, by Nicholas Bethel, and Victims of Yalta, 1977, by Nikolai Tolstoy, both shocking in their detailed accounts of what had happened. Cambodian extermination 1975 – 2.5 million. Armenian extermination by the Turks, 1915 – 1.5 million.

Behind the scenes the same group, always working under a different name and in a different occupation has managed every one of these real genocides as well as recent and ongoing holocausts in Palestine, Iraq and elsewhere.

Was there Really a Holocaust?
By Dr. E. R. Fields

The Holocaust has become the greatest instrument of sympathy which any nation has ever been able to use to gain support for wars, expansion and foreign-aid: This has made Israel the world’s sixth strongest military power. The gravest threat to all this wealth and influence is the growing doubt over the question of whether or not a real holocaust of 6 million Jews actually took place.

Numbers of Victims Don’t Add Up

The World Almanac for 1947 states that back in 1939 the world Jewish population was 15,688,259. The Almanac’s figures were supplied by the American Jewish Committee. Next the Jewish-owned New York Times of February 22, 1948 stated the world Jewish population for that year amounted “to 15,600,000 to 18,700,000 in addition to the 600,000 to 700,000 living in Palestine.” How could the Jewish population increase so rapidly over the war years if they had lost 6,000,000 people? (See Note 1).

Following the rise of Hitler there were no more than 4 million Jews at most living in areas occupied by the Third Reich at the height of its power. Yet on June 30, 1965, the West German government announced that some 3,375,000 Jewish holocaust “survivors” had applied for reparations money. The International Red Cross had already reported in 1946 that of registered Jewish camp inmates no more than 300,000 could have died, and their audit to December 31, 1984 records a total 282,077 registered deaths of all internees in all German Concentration Camps from all causes.

It is interesting to note that in the Jews’ real “bible”, The Talmud, it is claimed that 800,000 Jews were slaughtered by the Romans in Hadrian’s era. Yet there is no historical evidence to support this claim either. The Jewish-owned New York Times, in 1945 carried an article by the well known Jewish writer C.L. Sulzberger. It openly stated that Soviet Russia had supplied the figure of 4 million Jews having been put to death “in the gas chambers of Auschwitz.” Thus it was the Judaeo-Communists and the Jews who initially originated these figures which today are accepted as “gospel truth”. It is claimed that from 1934 to 1945 some 50,000 people died in the huge Bergen-Belsen camp. This count is considered exaggerated, still Time Magazine reports that of this figure 20,000 died of typhus during the single month of March, 1945! If nearly half died of this plague in just one month at the end of the war there is no way Bergen-Belsen could have been an “extermination camp”. (See Note 2).

Himmler – “Reduce Deaths at all Costs”

Heinrich Himmler, chief of the Concentration Camps issued orders on December 28, 1942, that “The death rate in the concentration camps must be reduced at all costs” (Reitlinger, “The Final Solution”). The camps had been hit with a deadly typhus epidemic that spread by fleas and body lice. Stomach pain, high fever, emaciation and death can quickly follow. All of the camps were factories and the loss of workers was hurting war production. Inspector of the camps, Richard Glucks responded to Himmler’s order on January 20, 1943, “Every means will be used to lower the death rates” (Nuremberg Tribunal Document No. 1523).

On April 10, 1943, Oswald Pohl, head of the Economic Administration Office of the camps issued a letter stating that persons with tuberculosis were being sent to the camps resulting in the “shockingly high mortality figures” (Nuremberg Documents). Later, on September 30, 1943, Pohl was able to show that the camp death rate had been reduced from 8.5% in July, 1942 to 2.8% in June 1943.

The German SS arrested Buchenwald Commandant, Karl Koch in 1943 for mistreating and even executing some prisoners. After an investigation Koch was found guilty by SS Judge Konrad Morgen and shot. Does this sound like a policy of “extermination?”

After the War, with suspicion rapidly rising about the holocaust claim, a committee of Jewish leaders from New York and Paris met with communist leaders in Warsaw. There they established the “Committee for the Investigation of War Crimes and War Criminals”. It was after this meeting that the announcement was made that all gas chambers were located in Poland.

The Problems of Mass Gassing

In 1945 it was announced that gas death chambers existed in all concentration camps in Poland, Germany, Austria and Alsace. Some 15 years later, in 1960, this was revised to the new claim that gas chambers existed only in camps located in Soviet held Poland. Simon Weisenthal of the Los Angeles Holocaust Center states in the paper, “Books and Bookmen”, April 1975, page 5, “No gassing took place in any camp on German soil.” The pressure had been growing since The Vatican, Red Cross, English Intelligence and German Intelligence chiefs Canaris and Oster (who collaborated with the British) either did not know or did not believe in rumors of gassings.

This brings up the following questions:

1). Germans are meticulous record keepers but there is not one order for the construction of any gas chamber, no blueprint, no photo of any gas chamber or gassed victims.

2). There have been thousands of investigations of alleged Nazi war criminals, hundreds of trials, yet not one person was ever accused of being involved with actual gassings! No reliable witness on either side has ever come forward who saw a single person gassed – AND THERE ARE SUPPOSED TO HAVE BEEN OVER 10,000 MASS GASSINGS!

3). Photos of bodies at Dachau and Belsen camps are of prisoners who died of typhus and malnutrition. Many Germans also died from typhus.

4). The Vatican and Red Cross interviewed thousands of freed camp inmates at the end of the War about alleged gas chambers. The response was always the same, “The detainees themselves have not spoken of them” (Red Cross document No. 9925, June 1946).
Forced Confessions of Gassings

Rudolf Hoess was the commandant of Auschwitz from 1940 to 1943. When captured by the Soviets they extracted a confession to mass gassings using Zyclon-B gas. Such “confessions” are about as reliable as any forced by Stalin from victims tortured before taking the stand to confess during the Moscow show trials of 1936. The communists wrote the “Confession’ and Hoess signed it. Later he was hanged. An assistant commandant refused to sign – he died in his cell. Hoess’ statement read, “half an hour after having released the gas, they opened the door and started the ventilation machines. They began immediately to extract the bodies while eating and smoking.”

Was Hoess trying to get a message across that there were no gassing? Zyklon-B is not “ventable”. The manufacturers state Zyklon-B adheres to surface clothing and skin. They say that only after a 24 hour period, wearing a gas mask with the strongest filter, could any bodies be removed without killing such workers.

If we believe the Hoess confession that the workers ran into the gas chamber “eating and smoking” – without gas masks – only minutes after the gassing – ALL WOULD HAVE DIED!

Gas Stories not Possible

The Jew Mosche Pearlmann in his book, “The Capture and Trial of Adolph Eichmann” states on pages 375 and 385 that Zyclon-B crystals were introduced from the ceilings of the gas chambers and “became immediately gaseous.” The American Cyanamid Co. of Linden N.J. states: “We know of no chemical process whereby HCN (Zyklon-B) may be made to become instantly gaseous upon exposure to air.” (See Note 3).

Claims of William Shirer

Shirer claims the gas was released from overhead through fake shower outlets, (page 970) and quickly killed its victims. The truth is that Zyklon-B gas is lighter than air and would rise to the ceiling so that anyone throwing themselves to the floor would be saved. Shirer also quotes the Soviet written confession signed by Hoess as stating (page 968), “We knew when the people were dead because their screaming stopped.” If anyone were actually killed with a cyanide type gas they would die instantly thus there would be no screaming at all. The truth is that Zyklon-B was used to delouse inmates’ clothing of lice and fleas which carry typhus.

The Problem of the Crematoriums

At the Auschwitz I camp there were only 6 crematory ovens. At the hospital in Auschwitz II there are 46 single cremators. In the Lubin camp there were only 6. THAT’S ALL! In these three camps 3 to 4 million Jews were supposed to have been exterminated and their bodies cremated. Furthermore, these cremation ovens were very small with only 18′ doors and required from 4 to 6 hours to burn each body using a large amount of coal. Cremation was used in the camps for those who passed away in order to prevent epidemics. No large supplies of coal were ever stored at the camps for cremations. A VERY INTERESTING NOTE appears only in the German edition of William L. Shirer’s book, “The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich.” It seems the Didler-Werke Company, which built the crematory ovens, sued Shirer who previously wrote that millions of people were gassed and then burned in this company’s ovens. In an out-of-court settlement of the suit Shirer agreed to add the following footnote on page 972 of the German edition: “The Didler-Werke have raised objection to the name of their firm appearing in the chapter concerning the extermination camps. Dr. S. Trastel, a professor of engineering in a statement of August 1961 established that the measurements are those which are standard for a crematory oven of not very modern design intended for small cemeteries and would be unsuitable for mass burning.” WHY IS THIS DELETED FROM THE ENGLISH EDITION???

On the question of cremating 6,000,000 people – this would leave 15,000 tons of ashes! Such gigantic piles of ashes created over the short 2 1/2 year period the holocaust supposedly took place would have been very difficult to dispose of. No one has ever come forward to report seeing such huge piles of tons of ashes. It was not until 1960 that the Soviets opened the Auschwitz camp to tourists and independent investigators. No gas chamber could be found. The official answer was that it was “taken to another camp for gassings and then later went into oblivion!” (See Zimunism).

What Experts say about the Holocaust

Dr. Harry Elmer Barnes, eminent historian, author of 40 books, many of which are standard college texts, noted in Rampart Journal, 1967. “It has been demonstrated that there had been no systematic extermination in those camps.” Thies Christopherden, a German soldier and author wrote: “I was at Auschwitz! There was no gas chamber there.” Paul Rassiner, historian and anti-Nazi activist, who served a prison sentence in Buchenwald and the Dora camps stated in 1962. “The claim that a holocaust took place is an historic lie – the most tragic and most macabre imposture of all time.” Prof. Robert Faurisson, a specialist in Document Analysis at the University of Lyon. France, stated on April 25, 1979. “The holocaust lie, which is largely of Zionist origin, has made an enormous political and financial fraud possible, whose principal beneficiary is the state of Israel.”

Why the Holocaust Campaign

Hardly a week goes by when there are not stories in the press, on TV-News or movies about the alleged holocaust. What is the long range design for this constant attempt to fill Germans and indeed all Christians with a feeling of guilt over a holocaust which never occurred?

Bernard Postal wrote in the Jewish Week, July 14, 1979, “Not until after the holocaust, did anti-Semitism become taboo. There was a time when anti-Semitic speeches were an open factor in national campaigns. The holocaust put a taboo on overt anti-Semitism among upper-level statesmen and publicists.”

S.E.D. Brown of South Africa, a noted journalist writes, “The holocaust instills a guilt complex in those said to be guilty and spreads the demoralization, degeneration, and eventually the destruction of the natural racial elite among a people. This transfers effective political control to the lowest elements who will cowtow to the Jews.”

Zionist spokesmen often boast of: “The shattering effect of the holocaust on the Christian conscience resulting in a feeling of collective indebtedness to the Jews.”

Massive unending U.S. Foreign Aid to Israel in made possible because anyone who dares to oppose these outrageous giveaways is condemned as being “anti-Semitic” and “insensitive” to holocaust victims. The Jews hold an unnatural violent hatred for the German people. Jews seek to turn all other peoples of the world against the Germans and keep that nation divided for all time to come. That is why no peace treaty has been signed as yet with Germany and why they still live under Allied military occupation laws.

A Question of Fund-raising

The Wall Street Journal quotes a Jewish professional fund-raising consultant firm of Milton Goldin Co., as saying the main theme of Jewish fund-raising is the holocaust and has been for 38 years. When they don’t use the holocaust the money collection sharply drops off. Thus the more the Press, TV and Hollywood promotes the holocaust the more money the United Jewish Appeal and other Zionist funds can extract from gullible people (Note 4).

Holocaust Silences Opposition

Jewish leaders have discovered that by repeating holocaust stories over and over again they can instill a guilt complex within all Gentiles. This effectively silences most critics of Zionist political goals.

What about Real Holocausts?

Why doesn’t the Jewish-controlled press, TV and film industry give massive media attention to real victims and to proven holocausts of Gentiles in recent history.

MOST BANNED BOOK IN THE WORLD: 200 Years Together Russian-Jewish History – Alexsandr Solzhenitsyn [English Translation Version]

The True Democracy Party is Proud to Present ‘The Most Banned Book In The World’.

1 Website and 1 Webpage have been pulled down since we began trying to bring this book forward.

This book is so Feared by World Zionist Jewry, that they have refused to translate it into English to this very day, the World Over.

This shows you how much of the World Media that ‘They’ control.

It’s been translated into German and French only, from the original Russian.

A group of Professors and Translators, so fed up with this Ultra World Censorship of an Acclaimed near masterpiece, and trying to keep information away from American’s, have begun Translating it on their own at their own expense, and are making it ‘Freely Available’ to all.

The result is a almost complete Translation, which can be viewed for free, as long as the various websites are up.

Most of the sites that ‘claim’ to have this book, Don’t. They just lure you in to give you their version of what Alex has to say.
We don’t believe you need their help or Propaganda.

We hope you enjoy a little unedited and uncensored truth.

200 Years Together

Two Hundred Years Together was written by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, the famous Russian dissident who won a Nobel Prize for Literature. It is about the time of the Russians and the Jews inside the empire. He wrote in Russian of course but various publishers decided they were not going to put out an English version because they were Jews or frightened of them.

The together of the title refers to Russians and Jews. The first volume was Russian-Jewish History 1795-1916. The second was called The Jews in the Soviet Union. So it is clear enough why the Jews were never going to like what he had to say.

Alex knew them close up and personal. Alex tells the truth about Jews so they hate him and his book. Oddly it has been put out in German and French. One might think the Germans would not be allowed access to the truth about the shysters marketing the Holocaust® story. Perhaps they have been brain washed into acceptance. A little of the background is at May Regulations.

The Wikipedia’s article at Two Hundred Years Together – Wikipedia, the free encyclopaedia is an example of their worst kind of work. The use of words like allege, claim, admit and purports indicate the use of Words as Propaganda Tools. The Wiki was set up by Jews with an agenda. Naturally they do not link to Professor MacDonald as a source. Truth and agenda are out of synch again. But read for yourself. Think for yourself. Decide for yourself.

More chapters are being translated as a private venture and being published on line.

The Barnes Review Of 200 Years Together
QUOTE
This issue, TBR is proud to bring you something we know you have never seen in the English language. It is an overview and critical review of one of the most important books compiled in the 20th century. The book being reviewed herein was written by the 1970 recipient of the Nobel prize in literature and one of the most highly respected writers and philosophers of the age—Russian dissident Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn. How could such a book escape publication in the United States? For that matter, why has no one ever translated the book into English? The title should help us understand why this book has been banned and suppressed since the day it was completed. The title of the volume we are reviewing is, simply, The Jews in the Soviet Union. This volume is part two of Solzhenitsyn’s massive two-book series 200Years Together.

Pressure from extremely powerful Zionist sources, as you have already figured out by the title, has kept this valuable work from reaching readers in the West. And the reason for that will become obvious once you dive into this issue of TBR. It details, with great precision, the Jewish involvement in the creation of Bolshevism and communism and the willing participation of Jews in perpetrating the worst mass murders of the 20th century—crimes which dwarf claims about the so-called “holocaust.” The number of innocent Christian Russians who died at the hands of the Soviets is mind-boggling. Solzhenitsyn himself estimated the toll at 60million. Many Jews, it must be added, were also crushed under the Soviet steamroller in later years, after Josef Stalin began to diminish their involvement in political and military affairs.

The truth contained within Solzhenitsyn’s The Jews in the Soviet Union might never have reached the Western world at all had not German historian Udo Walendy brought it some much-deserved attention. Over his career, as TBR readers know, this brave historian has published extremely honest and forthright discussions of World War II. For doing so he has twice been imprisoned in Germany. Think about this courageous man and the price he has paid for the truth as you read this special issue. Please note: This detailed review by Walendy is not a fawning endorsement of every word of Solzhenitsyn. Instead, Walendy takes the author to task where he feels he has fallen short of Revisionist standards.

In addition to Walendy, we thank nationalists Roy Armstrong and John Nugent for translating Walendy’s German review into English, and the many TBR staffers and volunteers who contributed so heavily to this issue. We think it is so important, we humbly suggest you buy extra copies to give to libraries and friends. Please see the ad on page 65 for more information. And while you’re at it, please renew your subscription to TBR. We can honestly say, TBR brings you a magazine unlike any other in the world today.

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, Two Hundred Years Together: Russo-Jewish History, Vol. 1: 1795-1916.

Chapter 1, To End of 18th Century, first installment (see contents).

[G13] In this book the presence of the Jews in Russia prior to 1772 will not be discussed in detail. However, for a few pages we want to remember the older epochs.

One could begin, that the paths of Russians and Jews first crossed in the wars between the Kiev Rus and the Khazars– but that isn’t completely right, since only the upper class of the Khazars were of Hebraic descent, the tribe itself being a branch of the Turks that had accepted the Jewish faith.

If one follows the presentation of J. D. Bruzkus, respected Jewish author of the mid 20th century, a certain part of the Jews from Persia moved across the Derbent Pass to the lower Volga where Atil [west coast of Caspian on Volga delta], the capital city of the Khazarian Khanate rose up starting 724 AD. The tribal princes of the Turkish Khazars, at the time still idol-worshippers, did not want to accept either the Muslim faith – lest they should be subordinated to the caliph of Baghdad – nor to Christianity – lest they come under vassalage to the Byzantine emperor; and so the clan went over to the Jewish faith in 732. But there was also a Jewish colony in the Bosporan Kingdom [on the Taman Peninsula at east end of the Crimea, separating the Black Sea from the Sea of Azov] to which Hadrian had Jewish captives brought in 137, after the victory over Bar-Kokhba. Later a Jewish settlement sustained itself without break under the Goths and Huns in the Crimea; especially Kaffa (Feodosia) remained Jewish. In 933 Prince Igor [912-945, Grand Prince of Kiev, successor of Oleg, regent after death of Riurik founder of the Kiev Kingdom in 862] temporarily possessed Kerch, and his son Sviatoslav [Grand Prince 960-972] [G14] wrested the Don region from the Khazars. The Kiev Rus already ruled the entire Volga region including Atil in 909, and Russian ships appeared at Samander [south of Atil on the west coast of the Caspian]. Descendents of the Khazars were the Kumyks in the Caucasus. In the Crimea, on the other hand, they combined with the Polovtsy [nomadic Turkish branch from central Asia, in the northern Black Sea area and the Caucasus since the 10th century; called Cuman by western historians; see second map, below] to form the Crimean Tatars. (But the Karaim [a jewish sect that does not follow the Talmud] and Jewish residents of the Crimean did not go over to the Muslim Faith.) The Khazars were finally conquered [much later] by Tamerlane [or Timur, the 14th century conqueror].

A few researchers however hypothesize (exact proof is absent) that the Hebrews had wandered to some extent through the south Russian region in west and northwest direction. Thus the Orientalist and Semitist Abraham Harkavy for example writes that the Jewish congregation in the future Russia “emerged from Jews that came from the Black Sea coast and from the Caucasus, where their ancestors had lived since the Assyrian and Babylonian captivity.” J. D. Bruzkus also leans to this perspective. (Another opinion suggests it is the remnant of the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel.) This migration presumably ended after the conquest of Tmutarakans [eastern shore of the Kerch straits, overlooking the eastern end of the Crimean Peninsula; the eastern flank of the old Bosporan Kingdom] (1097) by the Polovtsy. According to Harkavy’s opinion the vernacular of these Jews at least since the ninth century was Slavic, and only in the 17th century, when the Ukrainian Jews fled from the pogroms of Chmelnitzki [Bogdan Chmelnitzki, Ukrainian Cossack, 1593-1657, led the successful Cossack rebellion against Poland with help from the Crimean Tatars], did Yiddish become the language of Jews in Poland.

[G15] In various manners the Jews also came to Kiev and settled there. Already under Igor, the lower part of the city was called “Kosary”; in 933 Igor brought Jews that had been taken captive in Kerch. Then in 965 Jews taken captive in the Crimea were brought there; in 969 Kosaren from Atil and Samander, in 989 from Cherson and in 1017 from Tmutarakan. In Kiev western Jews also emerged.: in connection with the caravan traffic from west to east, and starting at the end of the eleventh century, maybe on account of the persecution in Europe during the first Crusade.

Later researchers confirm likewise that in the 11th century, the “Jewish element” in Kiev is to be derived from the Khazars. Still earlier, at the turn of the 10th century the presence of a “khazar force and a khazar garrison,” was chronicled in Kiev. And already “in the first half of the 11th century the jewish-khazar element in Kiev played “a significant roll.” In the 9th and 10th century, Kiev was multinational and tolerant.

At the end of the 10th century, in the time when Prince Vladimir [Vladimir I. Svyatoslavich 980-1015, the Saint, Grand Prince of Kiev] was choosing a new faith for the Russians, there were not a few Jews in Kiev, and among them were found educated men that suggested taking on the Jewish faith. The choice fell out otherwise than it had 250 hears earlier in the Khazar Kingdom. Karamsin [1766-1826, Russian historian] relates it like this: “After he (Vladimir) had listened to the Jews, he asked where their homeland was. ‘In Jerusalem,’ answered the delegates, ‘but God has chased us in his anger and sent us into a foreign land.’ ‘And you, whom God has punished, dare to teach others?’ said Vladimir. ‘We do not want to lose our fatherland like you have.’” After the Christianization of the Rus, according to Bruzkus, a portion of the Khazar Jews in Kiev also went over to Christianity and afterwards in Novgorod perhaps one of them – Luka Zhidyata – was even one of the first bishops and spiritual writers.

Christianity and Judaism being side-by-side in Kiev inevitably led to the learned zealously contrasting them. From that emerged the work significant to Russian literature, “Sermon on Law and Grace” ([by Hilarion, first Russian Metropolitan] middle 11th century), which contributed to the settling of a Christian consciousness for the Russians that lasted for centuries. [G16] “The polemic here is as fresh and lively as in the letters of the apostles.” In any case, it was the first century of Christianity in Russia. For the Russian neophytes of that time, the Jews were interesting, especially in connection to their religious presentation, and even in Kiev there were opportunities for contact with them. The interest was greater than later in the 18th century, when they again were physically close.

Then, for more than a century, the Jews took part in the expanded commerce of Kiev. “In the new city wall (completed in 1037) there was the Jews’ Gate, which closed in the Jewish quarter.” The Kiev Jews were not subjected to any limitations, and the princes did not handle themselves hostilely, but rather indeed vouchsafed to them protection, especially Sviatopolk Iziaslavich [Prince of Novgorod 1078-1087, Grand Prince of Kiev 1093-1113], since the trade and enterprising spirit of the Jews brought the princes financial advantage.

In 1113, Vladimir (later called “Monomakh”), out of qualms of conscience, even after the death of Sviatopolk, hesitated to ascend the Kiev Throne prior to one of the Svyatoslavich’s, and “exploiting the anarchy, rioters plundered the house of the regimental commander Putiata and all Jews that had stood under the special protection of the greedy Sviatopolk in the capital city. … One reason for the Kiev revolt was apparently the usury of the Jews: probably, exploiting the shortage of money of the time, they enslaved the debtors with exorbitant interest.” (For example there are indications in the “Statute” of Vladimir Monomakh that Kiev money-lenders received interest up to 50% per annum.) Karamsin therein appeals to the Chronicles and an extrapolation by Basil Tatistcheff [1686-1750; student of Peter the Great, first Russian historian]. In Tatistcheff we find moreover: “Afterwards they clubbed down many Jews and plundered their houses, because they had brought about many sicknesses to Christians and commerce with them had brought about great damage. Many of them, who had gathered in their synagogue seeking protection, defended themselves, as well as they could, and redeemed time until Vladimir would arrive.” But when he had come, “the Kievites pleaded with him for retribution toward the [G17] Jews, because they had taken all the trades from Christians and under Sviatopolk had had much freedom and power…. They had also brought many over to their faith.”

According to M. N. Pokrovski, the Kiev Pogrom of 1113 had social and not national character. (However the leaning of this “class-conscious” historian toward social interpretations is well-known.)

After he ascended to the Kiev throne, Vladimir answered the complainants, “Since many [Jews] everywhere have received access to the various princely courts and have migrated there, it is not appropriate for me, without the advice of the princes, and moreover contrary to right, to permit killing and plundering them. Hence I will without delay call the princes to assemble, to give counsel.” In the Council a law limiting the interest was established, which Vladimir attached to Yaroslav’s “Statute.” Karamsin reports, appealing to Tatistcheff, that Vladimir “banned all Jews” upon the conclusion of the Council, “and from that time forth there were none left in our fatherland.” But at the same time he qualifies: “in the Chronicles in contrast it says that in 1124 the Jews in Kiev died [in a great fire]; consequently, they had not been banned.” (Bruzkus explains, that it “was a whole Quarter in the best part of the city… at the Jew’s Gate next to the Golden Gate.”)

At least one Jew enjoyed the trust of Andrei Bogoliubskii [or Andrey Bogolyubsky] in Vladimir. “Among the confidants of Andrei was a certain Ephraim Moisich, whose patronymic Moisich or Moisievich indicates his jewish derivation,” and who according to the words of the Chronicle was among the instigators of the treason by which Andrei was murdered. However there is also a notation that says that under Andrei Bogoliubskii “many Bulgarians and Jews from the Volga territory came and had themselves baptized” and that after the murder of Andrei his son Georgi fled to a jewish Prince in Dagestan.

In any case the information on the Jews in the time of the Suzdal Rus is scanty, as their numbers were obviously small.

[G18] The “Jewish Encyclopedia” notes that in the Russian heroic songs (Bylinen) the “Jewish Czar” – e.g. the warrior Shidowin in the old Bylina about Ilya and Dobrin’a – is “a favorite general moniker for an enemy of the Christian faith.” At the same time it could also be a trace of memories of the struggle against the Khazars. Here, the religious basis of this hostility and exclusion is made clear. On this basis, the Jews were not permitted to settle in the Muscovy Rus.

The invasion of the Tatars portended the end of the lively commerce of the Kiev Rus, and many Jews apparently went to Poland. (Also the jewish colonization into Volhynia and Galicia continued, where they had scarcely suffered from the Tatar invasion.) The Encyclopedia explains: “During the invasion of the Tatars (1239) which destroyed Kiev, the Jews also suffered, but in the second half of the 13th century they were invited by the Grand Princes to resettle in Kiev, which found itself under the domination of the Tatars. On account of the special rights, which were also granted the Jews in other possessions of the Tatars, envy was stirred up in the town residents against the Kiev Jews.” Similar happened not only in Kiev, but also in the cities of North Russia, which “under the Tatar rule, were accessible for many [Moslem? see note 1] merchants from Khoresm or Khiva, who were long since experienced in trade and the tricks of profit-seeking. These people bought from the Tatars the principality’s right to levy Tribute, they demanded excessive interest from poor people and, in case of their failure to pay, declared the debtors to be their slaves, and took away their freedom. The residents of Vladimir, Suzdal, and Rostov finally lost their patience and rose up together at the pealing of the Bells against these usurers; a few were killed and the rest chased off.” A punitive expedition of the Khan against the mutineers was threatened, which however was hindered via the mediation of Alexander Nevsky. “In the documents of the 15th century, Kievite [G19] jewish tax-leasers are mentioned, who possessed a significant fortune.”

Note 1. The word “Moslem” is in the German but not French translation. I am researching the Russian original.

5 Comments to Two Hundred Years Together: From the Beginnings in Khazaria

We have all heard of the Khazars, and how the majority of Ashkenazi jews probably descend from them, but it is fascinating to see that history given a time and place, and fleshed out.
Harkavy’s thesis that the caspian jews were from the ten lost tribes or the remnant of the not-lost two tribes seems either implausible or self-defeating to me. (1) Why would those people have lost their collective memory of who they were? If it is claimed that they did remember, then why did they not write it down (genealogies, etc.)? (2) On the other hand, if they were descended from exiled Israel, but lost all continuity with the same, in what sense should they be regarded as jews? That is racism in the only form that the term makes any sense, but which still celebrates an absurdity: namely, thinking that mere blood, without any inherited culture, character, or accomplishment, grants one solidarity.

It is also interesting to see how in relatively recent history (yes I know, I must be weird to think of 1000 AD as “recent”) we can observe the formation of brand-new ethnic groups from a combination of migration and marriage, the turkish Cuman tribe for example becoming the partially european yet distinct tribe of Crimean Tatars.

In this regard, it is also fascinating to see that the majority of modern-day jews are essentially a branch of the Turks.

Comment by Tim H — December 12, 2007 @ 7:03 pm

Wrong, Tim. The majority of Ashkenazi Jewish ancestry comes from the Israelites. See the evidence for yourself at http://www.khazaria.com/genetics/abstracts.html and in Chapter 10 of “The Jews of Khazaria”, Second Edition, published by Rowman and Littlefield in 2006.
Comment by Kevin Brook — December 20, 2007 @ 11:59 pm

Kevin — I’m certainly no expert in genetics and so will quickly get out of my depth here. However, as with any layman in connection with any science, we can certainly challenge the logic.
At your link, he concludes that “the main ethnic element of … most modern Jewish populations of the world is Israelite,” but supports this with “the Israelite haplotypes fall into Y-DNA haplogroups J and E.” However, earlier he stated that “the Y-DNA haplogroups J and E … are typical of the Middle East” but not limited to Israel. So the logic seems to be:

All jews are (haplogroups J and E)
All (haplogroups J and E) are middle eastern

the latter including “Kurdish, Armenian, Palestinian Arab, Lebanese, Syrian, and Anatolian Turkish peoples”

From this we could conclude the family heritage with middle eastern peoples, not Israel simply.

And if Turks are lumped in with that group, as he does, there is no contradiction to my assertion. Indeed, coming full circle in that way shows the absurdity of the “rebuttal.”

The “middle east” is taken to include Armenians, Arabs, and Turks, and this itself shows the difficulty of these studies using samples after the mixing has occurred. Unless they can get enough DNA from the ancients, there is a great deal of assumption that must be mixed in, it seems to me. This is similar to the claim a while ago that some Negroes were descended from Thomas Jefferson. You can go up the chain, with 1/2 admixing at every step, then you have to go back down the chain, with 1/2 mixing at every step. And the DNA at each of the “1/2 admixing” steps, if it were avaialable at all, is also the result of such a series of 1/2 admixtures. I’m skeptical.

Later, your author identifies Khazars as Europeans, which is absurd.

Comment by TJH — December 21, 2007 @ 9:20 am

A correspondent has pointed out that in the passage near the end of this section,
“under the Tatar rule, were accessible for many Moslem merchants from Khoresm or Khiva, who were long since experienced in trade and the tricks of profit-seeking.”

the word “Moslem” is not in the French version. It does not appear to be in the Russian either, though I am struggling to get every word in the Russian. When I succeed, I will make a final correction. Until then, I have added a footnote.

Comment by TJH — March 31, 2008 @ 8:00 pm

I can confirm that the explicit word “Moslem” does not appear in the original. However, I think a Russian reader would infer that the merchants were in fact Moslem. The groups mentioned still exist today, though there are very few Besermyan left. They were either part of, or paid tribute to, the Khanate of Kazan. The Khoresm live in an area that was once in the Islamic Khanate of Khiva. Solzhenitsyn was quoting an official Russian history by N.M. Karamzin.

THE REAL IRAN – A FIRST WORLD COUNTRY: A PICTORIAL: “Please God, Don’t let US Destroy Iran”

The Real Iran – Jim Stone

Many people have posted pictures of Iran to “dispel the myth” that Iran is a backwards country with people who need to be “liberated”.

They then proceed to perpetuate that myth with pictures of goats and barns and other B.S.
I won’t do that here.

The fact of the matter is that a majority of Iranians live at least as well as Americans.

Iran is a first world country which aside from mandating women wear a head scarf (and men not walk around half naked), actually allows people to live their lives as they wish with far less interference than in America. That’s the real truth about Iran, and the following pictures PROVE IT.

This is Tehran. This is the city that Iran built the nuclear reactor for. [ SOURCE ]


Notice, more so than Americans, the people are INDIVIDUALS – it’s OBVIOUS!


This is another major Iranian city


Another Iranian city


Here are some BADLY BEATEN Iranian women (according to CNN)


Here is Tehran at night


Another shot of Tehran


Here are some Iranian goat herders


Here are the “mud huts” they live in.

If America goes in and destroys these people, without a damn good reason, it will be one of the greatest crimes the world has ever witnessed. The best kept secret in the world is Iran. This nation has stood up to Israel and the “elite” and maintained it’s national integrity. This is the true free world, where the people don’t get jammed into the corporate monoculture and do the bidding of the zionist banks. Despite severe sanctions placed on them, they have flourished because they are a people of a very high caliber.

Iran has NEVER attacked a neighbor, all wars in modern history that the Iranians got involved in were defensive, unlike America and Israel, which are the two nations of the world that have proven repeatedly over and over and over and over and over and over again that it is THEY that are the terrorists, indeed, the world fears America, and for a damn good reason. Iraq was VERY similar to Iran, and has been bombed to sand. How much do you think they love us for it? Think a nation like this is built for free?

Question: Do you think these people want to be LIBERATED by America? Do you think they dream about living in New York?


The Real Iran the US Doesnt Want You to See

Iran has been antagonized by the western Media particularly the US media, most Americans do not even realize that Iran is not an arab country and is more secular than Pakistan and Saudi Arabia. Nonetheless, arabs too have great rich culture and are loving people.

Iran is a Persian nation with a distinctive culture and language. Annual Purchasing Power Parity makes Iran the 17th largest economy which is continuing to diversify.

Iran the first country to develop an engine that runs on natural gas is now the 16th largest automaker in the world. Contrary to statements made by govt officials, Iran is not an anti semitic country and currently is home to over 20 thousand Jews.

The Islamic Republic may not be the true representation of the Iranian people but under the new theocracy, Jews actually received better treatment than before and Iranian Jews are free to visit Israel to see family members.

I wish one day the US will ally with Iran like they did during the 2001 Herat Uprising and join forces in fighting terrorist groups like the Taliban, an old threat to Iran and the region.

SCYTL EFFECTIVELY KILLS DEMOCRACY: VOTE FRAUD OUTSOURCING – PAPER TRAIL ELIMINATION “This is a High Jacking Of Democracy!”

Is Google Censoring criticism of SCYTL US Vote Outsourcing?

Is it being Censored in the Mainstream Media?

Google is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). The US Government takes their orders directly from the CFR.

If you know who the CFR are, and who they work for, you will know who runs America.

And they are trying to steal every single American Vote to do with as they please.

How can you have True Democracy, when your votes can be manipulated by a foreign company in a foreign country.

YOU CAN’T !

And just to make sure of that, they have eliminated any sort of “Paper Trail” that verifies ‘How you voted’. But “THEY” have a record of how you voted.

This is really scary stuff!

All Posts on this subject, including ours, are being highly censored.

This is Active and ongoing. While it’s easy to find the 8 or so Pro-SCYTL Posts, all pushed by a single Article, described below.

If this is allowed to stand, you can kiss True Democracy or any other form of Democracy, including Representative Democracy, “Good-Bye!”

NOTE: We could not find a single, non-mainstream source video on YouTube about the CFR. So we won’t show one at this time.
Censorship of the ‘Net’ is almost complete. The removal of any videos about certain things are being removed, buried, or replaced with corrupted mainstream sources from the History Channel or NBC.

If we wanted that garbage, we wouldn’t be online!

Stealing Democracy

This Post is so important to Democracy in America, that we are going to post it again.

Not a single American Citizen that we talked to wants this Government to put our votes under the control of some foreign Country.

In fact the word ‘Treason’ is starting to be used even more than it has been because of this post.

If Voting Machines are Documented as to how easy they are to corrupt, the answer is not to make a flawed system Nation Wide and then give it to a foreign company in a foreign Country to count our votes at the same time that they ELIMINATE any Paper Trail that might tell the truth.

There are also a number of (CORPORATE) Conservative and Progressive Websites coming out in favor of SCYTL. They say “don’t worry about the Voter Machines being compromised and your vote not counted or stolen. Don’t worry about the Documented theft of ‘passwords’ and the possibility that Elections can be stolen.

Just come on out and vote anyway. If enough people vote, they can’t steal all the votes. (Uh, yes they can easily steal enough votes to turn any election. They can even make it look close LOL! Lying Scum Bags)

These online corporate shills are pathetic. They include: washingtonexaminer.com (Michelle Malkin), lucianne.com, www.silobreaker.com, politico.biz, www.creators.com. There were 2 others, 1 conservative and 1 progressive, but they disappeared from the net, right before our eyes, as we were collecting the websites that ran this Pro-SCTYL Garbage.

Yes. The Rothschild Controlled Mainstream Media is moving their garbage online!

99.999% of Americans don’t want their votes counted by a foreign company or country. But what American’s want, doesn’t matter to Corporate Shills.

We’ve also included our video post Documented Voter Machine Fraud and Manipulation, at the bottom:

The Scytl connection: voting fraud in 2012 election?

A Spanish Company Known As Scytl Will Be Reporting Election Results For Hundreds Of U.S. Jurisdictions On Election Day

Do you know who is going to be counting the votes on Election Day 2012? Most Americans never even think about this. Most Americans just assume that their votes will count and that the government will ensure that the counting process is done honestly and fairly.

But is this really the case? Sadly, the vast majority of people never take the time to “look behind the curtain” to see how things really work. If they did, they might find themselves extremely upset about what they would find. The integrity of our voting process is of the utmost importance.

If we do not have the ballot box, then what avenues for changing our government do we have left? Unfortunately, the integrity of our elections has been called into question quite a few times in recent years, and now a Spanish company known as Scytl will be involved in reporting election results for hundreds of jurisdictions across the United States this upcoming election day. Will those election results be accurate?

It is absolutely amazing that a foreign company has been able to gain such control over the reporting of election results in the United States without it ever making a significant splash in the mainstream media.

You would think that there would be a law against this sort of thing, but apparently there is not.

So how did this all come about?

Well, the story starts with a company called SOE Software.

SOE Software was founded in 2002 and has been involved in reporting election results in 25 U.S. states….

Founded in 2002, SOE Software (SOE) has been working in 25 states to provide election management tools that include online pollworker training and election night reporting solutions to over 900 state and local election jurisdictions.

SOE Software was purchased by a company based in Barcelona, Spain known as Scytl earlier this year.

This combination of the two companies has produced a giant firm. Scytl now has a dominant market position in the election software market….

With the acquisition of SOE Software, Scytl is now the industry leader in the election software market with a full range of solutions that cover the whole election process and include secure online ballot delivery, Internet voting, electronic pollbooks, election night reporting, and online pollworker training.

Scytl will be involved in reporting election results in more U.S. jurisdictions than any other company.

In fact, the new combined company will be involved in reporting the election results in 30 U.S. states….

The combined organization is the largest pure election software company in the United States and will be serving customers in over 1,100 jurisdictions in 30 states, including 15 state-wide customers.

So exactly how does all of this work?

Why should we be concerned about what Scytl does with our votes?

Bev Harris of blackboxvoting.org has studied voting systems in the United States extensively. According to her, the combination of SOE Software and Scytl is going to make it much more difficult for observers to independently verify the integrity of the voting results in many jurisdictions. The following is an extended excerpt from a recent article by Bev Harris. It is a bit technical but it does a great job of breaking down how things have changed now that Scytl has acquired SOE Software….

In a major step towards global centralization of election processes, the world’s dominant Internet voting company has purchased the USA’s dominant election results reporting company.

When you view your local or state election results on the Internet, on portals which often appear to be owned by the county elections division, in over 525 US jurisdictions you are actually redirected to a private corporate site controlled by SOE software, which operates under the name ClarityElections.com.

The good news is that this firm promptly reports precinct-level detail in downloadable spreadsheet format. As reported by BlackBoxVoting.org in 2008, the bad news is that this centralizes one middleman access point for over 525 jurisdictions in AL, AZ, CA, CO, DC, FL, KY, MI, KS, IL, IN, NC, NM, MN, NY, SC, TX, UT, WA. And growing.

As local election results funnel through SOE’s servers (typically before they reach the public elsewhere), those who run the computer servers for SOE essentially get “first look” at results and the ability to immediately and privately examine vote details throughout the USA.

In 2004, many Americans were justifiably concerned when, days before the presidential election, Ohio Secretary of State Ken Blackwell redirected Ohio election night results through the Tennessee-based server for several national Republican Party operations.

This is worse: This redirects results reporting to a centralized privately held server which is not just for Ohio, but national; not just USA-based, but global.

A mitigation against fraud by SOE insiders has been the separation of voting machine systems from the SOE results reports. Because most US jurisdictions require posting evidence of results from each voting machine at the precinct, public citizens can organize to examine these results to compare with SOE results. Black Box Voting spearheaded a national citizen action to videotape / photograph these poll tapes in 2008.

With the merger of SOE and SCYTL, that won’t work (if SCYTL’s voting system is used). When there are two truly independent sources of information, the public can perform its own “audit” by matching one number against the other.

These two independent sources, however, will now be merged into one single source: an Internet voting system controlled by SCYTL, with a results reporting system also controlled by SCYTL.

With SCYTL internet voting, there will be no ballots. No physical evidence. No chain of custody. No way for the public to authenticate who actually cast the votes, chain of custody, or the count.

So should we trust that whatever election results Scytl gives us are accurate?

Of course not.

The truth is that there have been all sorts of questions about the integrity of Scytl voting systems. The following example comes from a recent article posted on westernjournalism.com….

The American advocacy group Project Vote has concluded that SCYTL’s internet voting system is vulnerable to attack from the outside AND the inside, a situation which could result in “…an election that does not accurately reflect the will of the voters…” Talk about having a flair for understatement!

There have also been very serious questions about SOE Software. Bev Harris of blackboxvoting.org says that there have been major problems with SOE Software election results in the past….

In Broward County FL, the results reported by Scytl-owned SOE Software in 2008 showed an entire candidate, who was winning, disappear into vapor in the middle of the count, and in Hillsborough County FL and Dallas County TX, votes that had been reported began to disappear.

So now we have a combination of SOE Software and Scytl. Considering the questions that have surrounded both firms in the past, it is easy to see why so many voting activists are deeply concerned.

There are a lot of rumors floating around the Internet that George Soros is at least a part owner of Scytl, but so far nobody has come forward with any solid evidence of this.

According to Scytl, the primary investors in the company are Balderton Capital, Nauta Capital and Spinnaker SCR. It is not known at this time whether George Soros has an ownership stake in any of those venture capital firms.

In any event, it is deeply troubling that a Spanish company will have control over the reporting of election results from hundreds of jurisdictions in the United States on election day.

Hopefully there will be no problems and the election results will be 100% honest and accurate.

But what if they are not?

Hello Scytl! Good bye America as we’ve known it!

WHAT is Scytl & WHY Should You Be VERY, VERY Concerned?
Written on April 10, 2012 by Ann-Marie Murrell

Here’s another of those quiet, subtle, but very dangerous little stories that has somehow slipped past all the mainstream media outlets.

The United States of America has a brand new private VOTE COUNTING company that the Obama administration has personally handpicked.

The company is called Scytl and it is based in Michelle Obama’s most favorite vacation spot, Barcelona, Spain.

Forget the fact that Barack is once again providing jobs for people in another country; there are much bigger fish to fry in this story.

According to the “About Us” section of the Scytl website:

Scytl is a worldwide leader in the development of secure solutions for electoral modernization.

Scytl was formed as a spin-off from a leading research group at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. This group, funded by the Spanish Government’s Ministry of Science and Technology, has pioneered the research on e-voting security in Europe since 1994 and has produced significant scientific results, including 25 scientific papers published in international journals and the first two European Ph.D. theses on electronic voting security, by Prof. Joan Borrell and Scytl’s founder Dr. Andreu Riera (in 1996 and 1999, respectively). This research group also participated in the first Internet binding election in Europe (i.e., the 1997 election to the Presidency of the IEEE IT Spanish chapter).

Scytl has customers both in the private and public sectors. Some of these customers represent leading references in the electoral modernization market (e.g., governments in Spain, the USA, France, Austria, Switzerland, United Kingdom, Philippines, Argentina, Mexico, Finland and Australia) and are pioneering new electronic voting applications. Scytl’s solutions have been successfully used in multiple projects worldwide, some of which represent breakthrough projects for the electoral modernization industry.

So what does this mean for all us non-European voters here in America?

According to Michael Savage, “[T]his critical component to a free election, the transparent tabulation of votes, will not be handled by individual precincts but by a company over which we will have little control…The problem is that once the votes are merged, it will be impossible to go back and check their integrity at the local level. It is very likely that this is the final step in Barack Obama’s corruption of the voting process. It has the promise of enabling him and his cohorts to control the outcomes of federal elections with no accountability. On top of that it’s one more step toward a global government.”

There are no Americans on the Board of Directors of Scytl—but CEO Pere Valles once lived and worked in Barack’s old stomping grounds, Chicago. From the Scytl website:

Mr. Valles joined Scytl in March 2004 after spending most of his professional career in the United States. Prior to joining Scytl, Mr. Valles was Vice-President and Chief Financial Officer of GlobalNet, a NASDAQ publicly-traded telecommunications company headquartered in Chicago. Mr. Valles assisted GlobalNet in becoming one of the leading providers of Voice-over-IP in the world and was instrumental in the successful sale of the company to the Titan Corporation, a NYSE defense company.

At GlobalNet, Mr. Valles was responsible for designing and executing the strategic plan that led to an increase in revenues from US$ 25 million to over US$ 100 million and brought the company to profitability. Previously, Mr. Valles had worked as Senior Manager for KPMG‘s Mergers & Acquisitions group in Los Angeles and Miami providing financial and strategic consulting services to private equity groups and corporations involved in acquisitions in the United States, Latin America and Europe. During his career at KPMG, Mr. Valles actively participated in more than 20 transactions in the telecommunications and technology areas. Mr. Valles has a bachelor degree in Economics and a bachelor degree in Law from the University of Barcelona and a MBA (summa cum laude) from Indiana University.

In 2008 the Florida Department of State looked into using Scytl’s remote voting system but turned it down. Their reasons:

Our findings identified vulnerabilities that, in the worst case, could result in (i) voters being unable to cast votes, (ii) an election result that does not accurately reflect the will of the voters, or (iii) disclosure of confidential information, such as the votes cast by a voter. The extent to which these vulnerabilities could actually be exploited in the ODBP is beyond the scope of this report given our lack of system context. Secure handling and audit of the Voter Choice Records may defend against some or all of these vulnerabilities, but these procedures were not available for review.

We identify three findings of particular significance:

The use of supervised polling stations provides significantly better protection against voter coercion or vote- 
selling than is present in some other absentee voting systems, such as voting by mail.
Two copies of each vote are stored: one electronically, and another on paper as a Voter Choice Record. This pro- vides redundancy that is not present in existing vote-by-mail systems. If the electronic votes are well-protected, then they can enable audit of the paper records in ways that are not currently possible.

After casting their ballot, each voter is given a receipt that is intended to give voters confidence that their votes were “Counted as Cast”. These receipts do not achieve their stated goal of allowing voters to “independently verify that their ballots have been correctly accounted for.” These receipts might indicate that a vote was received and decrypted by the county (a property not typically provided by current postal voting systems), but they do not provide assurance that the voter’s vote was correctly recorded.

Also interesting to note, one of the organizations on “Scytl Partners” tab is Oracle, a major supporter to all-things-Democrat. And another Scytl Partner is a spooky “global governance” organization calledGov2u.org. Check them out. Yikes.

There are many, many reasons for all of us to be concerned about Obama’s choice in vote-counting this November—yet no one seems to be up-in-arms about this other than Michael Savage and a handful of Internet bloggers.

Just How Corrupt Will The United States Voting System Be In 2012 – VIRALIZE

***

ADMIN: “When In HELL Are You People Going To WAKE UP ?!?!”

***

Massive and Potential documented voting machine FRAUD has led the True Democracy Party to one Conclusion. You can not trust voting machines, period. There is an overwhelming mountain of evidence of fraud and manipulation of these machines.

TDP and most Americans (when they learn the truth about the VM’s) want Paper Ballots Only, and Dedicated Voting Stations.
How will we count the millions of votes? This is the most frequently asked question.
We will count them like we used to, by hand. The computer is relatively new to the scene. We use to count ballots, not only by hand, but the count would almost always be finished between 1 or 2am, in time for newspaper final print and distribution.
This always astounded me.

Do we need to go back to Paper Ballots? TDP says YES!!! Though this is only one method used by Republicans to steal US Elections. We must address them all. The VOTE is one of our most Important Rights in a Democracy.

There are dozens, if not hundreds of videos about these voting machines and fraud and corruption. This is only a small sampling.
And it’s rarely talked about. That’s about to change!

TURNING SENIORS INTO DEBT SLAVES: Indentured Servitude for Seniors: Social Security Garnished for Student Debts – Ellen Brown

Global Research, May 11, 2012
Web of Debt

The Social Security program…represents our commitment as a society to the belief that workers should not live in dread that a disability, death, or old age could leave them or their families destitute.

– President Jimmy Carter, December 20, 1977.

[This law] assures the elderly that America will always keep the promises made in troubled times a half century ago…[The Social Security Amendments of 1983 are] a monument to the spirit of compassion and commitment that unites us as a people.

– President Ronald Reagan, April 20, 1983
So said Presidents Carter and Regan, but that was before 1996, when Congress voted to allow federal agencies to offset portions of Social Security payments to collect debts owed to those agencies. (31 U.S.C. §3716). Now we read of horror stories like this:
I’m a 68 year old grandma of 2 young grandchildren. I went to college to upgrade my employment status in 1998 or 1999. I finished in 2000 and at that time had a student loan balance of about 3500.00.

Could not find a job and had to request forbearance to carry me. Over the years I forgot about the loan, dealt with poor health, had brain surgery in 2006 and the collection agents decided to collect for the loan in 2008.

At no time during the 6-7 year gap did anyone remind me or let me know that I could make a minimum payment on the loan. Now that I am on Social Security (have been since I was 62), they have decided to garnishee my SS check to the tune of 15%.

I have not been employed since 2004 and have the two dependents . . . . I don’t dispute that I owed them the $3500.00 but am wondering why they let it build up to somewhere around $17,000/20,000 before they attempted to collect.
Her debt went from $3500 to over $17,000 in 10 years?! How could that be?

It seems that Congress has removed nearly every consumer protection from student loans, including not only standard bankruptcy protections, statutes of limitations, and truth in lending requirements, but protection from usury (excessive interest). Lenders can vary the interest rates, and some borrowers are reporting rates as high as 18-20%. At 20%, debt doubles in just 3-1/2 years; and in 7 years, it quadruples. Congress has also given lenders draconian collection powers to extort not just the original principal and interest on student loans but huge sums in penalties, fees, and collection costs.

The majority of these debts are being imposed on young people, who have a potential 40 years of gainful employment ahead of them to pay the debt off. But a sizeable chunk of U.S. student loan debt is held by senior citizens, many of whom are not only unemployed but unemployable. According to the New York Federal Reserve, two million U.S. seniors age 60 and over have student loan debt, on which they owe a collective $36.5 billion; and 11.2 percent of this debt is in default. Almost a third of all student loan debt is held by people aged 40 and over, and 4.2% is held by people over the age of 60. The total student debt is now over $1 trillion, more even than credit card debt. The sum is unsustainable and threatens to be the next debt tsunami.

Some of this debt is for loans taken out years earlier on their own schooling, and some is from co-signing student loans for children or grandchildren. But much of it has been incurred by middle-aged people going back to school in the hope of finding employment in a bad job market. What they have wound up with is something much worse: no job, an exponentially mounting debt that cannot be discharged in bankruptcy, and the prospect of old age without a social security check adequate to survive on.

Gone is the promise of earlier presidents of a “commitment to the belief that workers should not live in dread that a disability, death, or old age could leave them or their families destitute.” The plight of the indebted elderly is reminiscent of the Irish immigrants who came to America after a potato famine in the 19th century, who were looked upon in some places as actually lower than slaves. Plantation owners kept their slaves fed, clothed and cared for, because they were valuable property. The Irish were expendable, and they were on their own.

It is obviously not a good time to raise interest rates on student debt, but they are set to double on July 1, 2012, to 6.8%. Many lawmakers in both parties agree that the current 3.4% rates should be extended for another year, but they can’t agree on how to find the $6 billion that this would cost. Republicans want to take the money from a health care fund that promotes preventive care; Democrats want to eliminate some tax benefits for small business owners.

Congress cannot agree on $6 billion to save the students, yet they managed to agree in a matter of days in September 2008 to come up with $700 billion to save the banks; and the Federal Reserve found many trillions more. Estimates are that tuition could be provided free to students for a mere $30 billion annually. The government has the power to find $30 billion — or $300 billion or $3 trillion — in the same place the Federal Reserve found it: it can simply issue the money.

Congress is empowered by the Constitution to “coin money” and “regulate the value thereof,” and no limit is set on the face amount of the coins it creates. It could issue a few one-billion dollar coins, deposit them in an account, and start writing checks.

But wouldn’t that be inflationary? No. The Fed’s own figures show that the money supply (M3) has shrunk by $3 trillion since 2008. That sum could be added back into the economy without inflating prices. Gas and food are going up today, but the whole range of prices must be considered in order to determine whether price inflation is occurring. Housing and wages are significantly larger components of the price structure than commodities, and they remain severely depressed.

There is another way the government could find needed funds without raising taxes, slashing services, or going further into debt: Congress could re-finance the federal debt through the Federal Reserve, interest-free. Canada did this from 1939 to 1974, keeping its national debt low and sustainable while funding massive programs including seaways, roadways, pensions, and national health care. The national debt shot up only when the government switched from borrowing from its own central bank to borrowing from private lenders at interest. The rationale was that borrowing bank-created money from the government’s own central bank inflated the money supply, while borrowing existing funds from private banks did not. But even the Federal Reserve acknowledges that private banks create the money they lend on their books, just as central banks do.

U.S. taxpayers now pay nearly half a trillion dollars annually to finance our federal debt. The cumulative figure comes to $8.2 trillion paid in interest just in the last 24 years. By financing the debt itself rather than paying interest to private parties, the government could divert what it would have paid in interest into tuition, jobs, infrastructure and social services, allowing us to keep the social contract while at the same time stimulating the economy.

For students, at the very least the bankruptcy option needs to be reinstated, usury laws restored, predatory practices eliminated, and the cost of education brought back down to earth. One possibility for relieving the burden on students would be to give them interest-free loans. The government of New Zealand now offers 0% loans to New Zealand students, with repayment to be made from their income after they graduate. For the past twenty years, the Australian government has also successfully funded students by giving out what are in effect interest-free loans. The loans in the Australian Higher Education Loan Programme (or HELP) do not bear interest, but the government gets back more than it lends, because the principal is indexed to the Consumer Price Index (CPI), which goes up every year.

Predatory lenders are keeping us in debt peonage through misguided economics and bank-captured legislators. We have people who desperately want to work, to the point of going back to school to try to improve their chances; and we have mountains of work that needs to be done. The only thing keeping them apart is that artificial constraint called “money”, which we have allowed to be created by banks and let out at interest when it could have been created by public institutions for public purposes, either by direct issuance or through publicly-owned banks. We just need to recognize our oppressors and throw off their yoke, and the good times can roll again.

GENETICALLY MODIFIED ORGANISMS (GMO’$) ARE KILLING OUR BEES – The Death Of Bees “When the bees go, so goes Man” – Albert Einstein

This article was originally published by Global Research in March 2008

Commercial beehives pollinate over a third of [North}America’s crops and that web of nourishment encompasses everything from fruits like peaches, apples, cherries, strawberries and more, to nuts like California almonds, 90 percent of which are helped along by the honeybees. Without this pollination, you could kiss those crops goodbye, to say nothing of the honey bees produce or the flowers they also fertilize’.1
This essay will discuss the arguments and seriousness pertaining to the massive deaths and the decline of Bee colonies in North America. As well, it will shed light on a worldwide hunger issue that will have an economical and ecological impact in the very near future.

There are many reasons given to the decline in Bees, but one argument that matters most is the use of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO) and “Terminator Seeds” that are presently being endorsed by governments and forcefully utilized as our primary agricultural needs of survival. I will argue what is publicized and covered by the media is in actuality masking the real forces at work, namely the impact of genetically modified seeds on the reproduction of bee colonies across North America

Genetically modified seeds are produced and distributed by powerful biotech conglomerates. The latter manipulate government agricultural policy with a view to supporting their agenda of dominance in the agricultural industry. American conglomerates such as Monsanto, Pioneer Hybrid and others, have created seeds that reproduce only under certain conditions, often linked to the use of their own brands of fertilizer and/or insecticide.

The genetic modification of the plant leads to the concurrent genetic modification of the flower pollen. When the flower pollen becomes genetically modified or sterile, the bees will potentially go malnourished and die of illness due to the lack of nutrients and the interruption of the digestive capacity of what they feed on through the summer and over the winter hibernation process.

I will argue that the media reports tend to distract public opinion from the true cause which underlies the destruction of bee colonies. As such, outlined are four major arguments which the biotech conglomerates (which produce and market GMO seeds) have used to mislead the public regarding the demise of the bees. These arguments include Varroa mites, parasites, cell phones, and terminator seeds

Argument 1: Varroa mites2

Firstly, “while there are some [people who] want to pin the blame on these mites”3, such views are unconvincing in that the argument does not make any sense because the main source of disease for these bees is intestinal disease. In fact, “many bee experts assumed Varroa mites were a major cause of the severe die-off in the winter of 2005. Yet when researchers from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Bee Research Laboratory in Beltsville, Maryland, traveled to Oakdale, California, where Anderson and a number of his fellow beekeepers spend winter and spring, they could find no correlation between the level of Varroa mite infestation and the health of bee colonies. ‘We couldn’t pin the blame for the die-off on any single cause,’ says Jeff Pettis, a research entomologist from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Bee Research Laboratory in Beltsville, Maryland,4 However, treatments against mites may be leaving hives open to the onslaught of powerful pathogens, much in the same way the overuse of antibiotics lead to super bugs”5 in society today. What does that say about our future? We have learned that in the 1960’s and 1970’s, among other human ailments, DDT was a major cause of cancer in humans and animals; however, the substitution of such pesticides was a closely guarded secret. Unfortunately, the long term effects on the human population has yet to be understood as the compromise of the immune system may be happening quicker than we are ready to accept, even regarding the advent of super bugs. One can see that even this medical implication has severe economical implications.

Argument 2: Parasites

Secondly; “Crops and even hedges, verges, and woodlands, and even where bees remain are sprayed with pesticides or herbicides. These chemicals are the practical extension of an exasperating belief that nature is our enemy. Pouring poison on our food is a very simplistic way of dealing with our problems however it ignores the root causes. New genetically modified crops, designed to be immune to certain pesticides and herbicides, have resulted in the increased usage of these chemicals. Pesticides, particularly Bayer’s imidacloprid, a nicotine-based product marketed under the names Admire, Provado, Merit, Marathon, and Gaucho have been concretely implicated6 in the destruction of bee populations before. (See also)7. The fact that other bees and insects are not raiding deserted hives to feed on the honey as they normally would lends some credence to the theory of a toxic overload”8. The toxic overload is certainly a concern, but wouldn’t it also need to be considered that this is systematic in the degeneration of the digestive process, such as in humans’ inability to digest preservatives and not absorb the enzymes to break down the foods eaten for survival?

Argument 3: cell phones

Thirdly, “there was also a misconstrued study on cell phone radiation 9 and its effects on the bee’s ability to navigate which turned out to be an over-zealous unthinking reaction by an article in the Independent [news]. Some have also mentioned other navigational hindrances such as UV radiation, shifting magnetic fields and even quantum physics10 as a reason to the destruction of the bees”11.

There is certain implications to this theory, and it has been proven that electromagnetic radio wave lengths to affect the navigation of the bees. However the sun emits radiation spurts all the time, yet this has not offered a hindrance to the bees.

Argument 4: Terminator Seeds

Lastly, “leaked documents seen by the Guardian show that Canada wants all governments to accept the testing and commercialization of “Terminator” crop varieties. These seeds are genetically engineered to produce only infertile seeds, which farmers cannot replant, also to mention that the bees that are trying to collect pollen, found to have their digestive tract diseases, such as amoeba and nosema disease”12. These diseases are mainly located in the digestive tract system. After studies of the autopsy, the most alarming trait is that the lower intestine and stinger have discolored to black vs. the normal opaque color, Synominus with colon cancer in humans.

Figure 1: Extreme discoloration of intestinal tracts of bees.

‘When thoracic discs were cut from sample Georgia A-2 the musculature of bees was notably soft and discolored (A) when compared to healthy thoracic cuts (B).

This discoloration suggests that the bees were dead upon collection. When questioned the beekeeper confirmed that the bees were alive at the time of collection. Further, the tracheal system of these bees did not show signs of desiccation usually associated

with the collection of dead bees. Thoracic discs from this sample, after being placed in KOH for 24 hours, revealed peculiar white nodules”13

As seen above, it is certain that the digestive shutdown is due to hard material in the digestive tract that compromises the immune system. Circulatory problems would without doubt. Could it be that humans are going through the same process with the rise of Colon Cancer? As seen below in the comparison of the healthy Bee and the unhealthy bee, it is obvious that the bees that are ingesting GMO pollen are having severe digestive problems, so severe that the disease is terminal.

Figure 2: Digestive shutdown of the Honey Bee

The rectal contents of Georgia bees (A) were distinctly different then the contents of Pasadena bees (B). The rectal walls of GA bees were notably transparent revealing contents that looked like small stone packets (C). While Fyg (1964) describes similar stone like contents in poorly laying queens, the stones observed in the GA bees were not attached to the epithelium layer as Fyg (1964) describes. When these packets were ground and mounted, some unidentified floating objects (UFO’s) were observed. A cubic particle that resembles the cubic bodies of polyhedrios viruses (this viruses attacks wax moths) excepting that the cube observed was ~10x too big for a virus particle. There were fragments of pollen grains husks in all samples examined. All PA samples were found to have nosema spores in their rectal contents while none of the GA samples did. In two samples, epithelial cells were packed with spores.14

The North American reliance on bees for pollination is at minimum from 30 to 40%. Does it not seem obvious that the digestion of genetic material directly affects the digestive process of the bees? Could it also be that there are similarities in the human population’s digestive process? It must also be noted that this increased epidemic of the bee colony collapse has risen significantly since the use of GMO in our foods. It is also suspect in the rise of new cases of medical ailments in humans such as colon cancer, obesity, heart disease, etc… In the writers’ opinion, the inability of the bees to pass matter digestively is quite similar to the present-day problems in the human digestive system

Conclusion:

The proof is obvious that one of the major reasons of the bees’ decline is by the ingestion of GMO proteins. This is problematic, as there is such an increase of indigestible foods in humans and bees. The situation of colon cancer in humans is somewhat similar in occurrence. This is only a theory but leaves one to wonder what are we eating en mass. The external or complementary good of the bee is obviously a rise for a global concern. The long-term economical and environmental impact has yet to be completely understood.

The Ecological Impact of horizontal gene transfer and increase of rampant disease is not fully examined and if so, is kept silent by these Conglomerates. The Economic impact of the bee colony collapse would mean inflation, scarcity of agricultural commodities, and ultimately the collapse of North American agriculture.

The Environmental Impact of scarcity and increased demand for resources, will beyond doubt have severe repercussions for our long-term food security. The bio-diversity of the bees causes positive economic and ecological externalities. The negative externalities have yet to be fully grasped or understood.

Organic crops: still relatively untouched

The truth is that organic farming is relatively untouched as the bee crisis is concerned. Organic farming maintains the diversity of the eco-system and preserves the quality of the foods produced. The economic impact that the scarcity of bees will potentially have on our society as a whole is very worrisome. In the end, only our children will fully realize; that it was greed that destroyed our beautiful blue planet.

SCYTL WILL DESTROY DEMOCRACY: VOTE FRAUD OUTSOURCING – PAPER TRAIL ELIMINATION IS TREASON TO DEMOCRACY : Online Corporate Shills Promote Hijacking Of Democracy!

This Post is so important to Democracy in America, that we are going to post it again.

Not a single American Citizen that we talked to wants this Government to put our votes under the control of some foreign Country.

In fact the word ‘Treason’ is starting to be used even more than it has been because of this post.

If Voting Machines are Documented as to how easy they are to corrupt, the answer is not to make a flawed system Nation Wide and then give it to a foreign company in a foreign Country to count our votes at the same time that they ELIMINATE any Paper Trail that might tell the truth.

There are also a number of (CORPORATE) Conservative and Progressive Websites coming out in favor of SCYTL. They say “don’t worry about the Voter Machines being compromised and your vote not counted or stolen. Don’t worry about the Documented theft of ‘passwords’ and the possibility that Elections can be stolen.

Just come on out and vote anyway. If enough people vote, they can’t steal all the votes. (Uh, yes they can easily steal enough votes to turn any election. They can even make it look close LOL! Lying Scum Bags)

These online corporate shills are pathetic. They include: washingtonexaminer.com (Michelle Malkin), lucianne.com, www.silobreaker.com, politico.biz, www.creators.com. There were 2 others, 1 conservative and 1 progressive, but they disappeared from the net, right before our eyes, as we were collecting the websites that ran this Pro-SCTYL Garbage.

Yes. The Rothschild Controlled Mainstream Media is moving their garbage online!

99.999% of Americans don’t want their votes counted by a foreign company or country. But what American’s want, doesn’t matter to Corporate Shills.

We’ve also included our video post Documented Voter Machine Fraud and Manipulation, at the bottom:

The Scytl connection: voting fraud in 2012 election?

A Spanish Company Known As Scytl Will Be Reporting Election Results For Hundreds Of U.S. Jurisdictions On Election Day

Do you know who is going to be counting the votes on Election Day 2012? Most Americans never even think about this. Most Americans just assume that their votes will count and that the government will ensure that the counting process is done honestly and fairly.

But is this really the case? Sadly, the vast majority of people never take the time to “look behind the curtain” to see how things really work. If they did, they might find themselves extremely upset about what they would find. The integrity of our voting process is of the utmost importance.

If we do not have the ballot box, then what avenues for changing our government do we have left? Unfortunately, the integrity of our elections has been called into question quite a few times in recent years, and now a Spanish company known as Scytl will be involved in reporting election results for hundreds of jurisdictions across the United States this upcoming election day. Will those election results be accurate?

It is absolutely amazing that a foreign company has been able to gain such control over the reporting of election results in the United States without it ever making a significant splash in the mainstream media.

You would think that there would be a law against this sort of thing, but apparently there is not.

So how did this all come about?

Well, the story starts with a company called SOE Software.

SOE Software was founded in 2002 and has been involved in reporting election results in 25 U.S. states….

Founded in 2002, SOE Software (SOE) has been working in 25 states to provide election management tools that include online pollworker training and election night reporting solutions to over 900 state and local election jurisdictions.

SOE Software was purchased by a company based in Barcelona, Spain known as Scytl earlier this year.

This combination of the two companies has produced a giant firm. Scytl now has a dominant market position in the election software market….

With the acquisition of SOE Software, Scytl is now the industry leader in the election software market with a full range of solutions that cover the whole election process and include secure online ballot delivery, Internet voting, electronic pollbooks, election night reporting, and online pollworker training.

Scytl will be involved in reporting election results in more U.S. jurisdictions than any other company.

In fact, the new combined company will be involved in reporting the election results in 30 U.S. states….

The combined organization is the largest pure election software company in the United States and will be serving customers in over 1,100 jurisdictions in 30 states, including 15 state-wide customers.

So exactly how does all of this work?

Why should we be concerned about what Scytl does with our votes?

Bev Harris of blackboxvoting.org has studied voting systems in the United States extensively. According to her, the combination of SOE Software and Scytl is going to make it much more difficult for observers to independently verify the integrity of the voting results in many jurisdictions. The following is an extended excerpt from a recent article by Bev Harris. It is a bit technical but it does a great job of breaking down how things have changed now that Scytl has acquired SOE Software….

In a major step towards global centralization of election processes, the world’s dominant Internet voting company has purchased the USA’s dominant election results reporting company.

When you view your local or state election results on the Internet, on portals which often appear to be owned by the county elections division, in over 525 US jurisdictions you are actually redirected to a private corporate site controlled by SOE software, which operates under the name ClarityElections.com.

The good news is that this firm promptly reports precinct-level detail in downloadable spreadsheet format. As reported by BlackBoxVoting.org in 2008, the bad news is that this centralizes one middleman access point for over 525 jurisdictions in AL, AZ, CA, CO, DC, FL, KY, MI, KS, IL, IN, NC, NM, MN, NY, SC, TX, UT, WA. And growing.

As local election results funnel through SOE’s servers (typically before they reach the public elsewhere), those who run the computer servers for SOE essentially get “first look” at results and the ability to immediately and privately examine vote details throughout the USA.

In 2004, many Americans were justifiably concerned when, days before the presidential election, Ohio Secretary of State Ken Blackwell redirected Ohio election night results through the Tennessee-based server for several national Republican Party operations.

This is worse: This redirects results reporting to a centralized privately held server which is not just for Ohio, but national; not just USA-based, but global.

A mitigation against fraud by SOE insiders has been the separation of voting machine systems from the SOE results reports. Because most US jurisdictions require posting evidence of results from each voting machine at the precinct, public citizens can organize to examine these results to compare with SOE results. Black Box Voting spearheaded a national citizen action to videotape / photograph these poll tapes in 2008.

With the merger of SOE and SCYTL, that won’t work (if SCYTL’s voting system is used). When there are two truly independent sources of information, the public can perform its own “audit” by matching one number against the other.

These two independent sources, however, will now be merged into one single source: an Internet voting system controlled by SCYTL, with a results reporting system also controlled by SCYTL.

With SCYTL internet voting, there will be no ballots. No physical evidence. No chain of custody. No way for the public to authenticate who actually cast the votes, chain of custody, or the count.

So should we trust that whatever election results Scytl gives us are accurate?

Of course not.

The truth is that there have been all sorts of questions about the integrity of Scytl voting systems. The following example comes from a recent article posted on westernjournalism.com….

The American advocacy group Project Vote has concluded that SCYTL’s internet voting system is vulnerable to attack from the outside AND the inside, a situation which could result in “…an election that does not accurately reflect the will of the voters…” Talk about having a flair for understatement!

There have also been very serious questions about SOE Software. Bev Harris of blackboxvoting.org says that there have been major problems with SOE Software election results in the past….

In Broward County FL, the results reported by Scytl-owned SOE Software in 2008 showed an entire candidate, who was winning, disappear into vapor in the middle of the count, and in Hillsborough County FL and Dallas County TX, votes that had been reported began to disappear.

So now we have a combination of SOE Software and Scytl. Considering the questions that have surrounded both firms in the past, it is easy to see why so many voting activists are deeply concerned.

There are a lot of rumors floating around the Internet that George Soros is at least a part owner of Scytl, but so far nobody has come forward with any solid evidence of this.

According to Scytl, the primary investors in the company are Balderton Capital, Nauta Capital and Spinnaker SCR. It is not known at this time whether George Soros has an ownership stake in any of those venture capital firms.

In any event, it is deeply troubling that a Spanish company will have control over the reporting of election results from hundreds of jurisdictions in the United States on election day.

Hopefully there will be no problems and the election results will be 100% honest and accurate.

But what if they are not?

Hello Scytl! Good bye America as we’ve known it!

WHAT is Scytl & WHY Should You Be VERY, VERY Concerned?
Written on April 10, 2012 by Ann-Marie Murrell

Here’s another of those quiet, subtle, but very dangerous little stories that has somehow slipped past all the mainstream media outlets.

The United States of America has a brand new private VOTE COUNTING company that the Obama administration has personally handpicked.

The company is called Scytl and it is based in Michelle Obama’s most favorite vacation spot, Barcelona, Spain.

Forget the fact that Barack is once again providing jobs for people in another country; there are much bigger fish to fry in this story.

According to the “About Us” section of the Scytl website:

Scytl is a worldwide leader in the development of secure solutions for electoral modernization.

Scytl was formed as a spin-off from a leading research group at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. This group, funded by the Spanish Government’s Ministry of Science and Technology, has pioneered the research on e-voting security in Europe since 1994 and has produced significant scientific results, including 25 scientific papers published in international journals and the first two European Ph.D. theses on electronic voting security, by Prof. Joan Borrell and Scytl’s founder Dr. Andreu Riera (in 1996 and 1999, respectively). This research group also participated in the first Internet binding election in Europe (i.e., the 1997 election to the Presidency of the IEEE IT Spanish chapter).

Scytl has customers both in the private and public sectors. Some of these customers represent leading references in the electoral modernization market (e.g., governments in Spain, the USA, France, Austria, Switzerland, United Kingdom, Philippines, Argentina, Mexico, Finland and Australia) and are pioneering new electronic voting applications. Scytl’s solutions have been successfully used in multiple projects worldwide, some of which represent breakthrough projects for the electoral modernization industry.

So what does this mean for all us non-European voters here in America?

According to Michael Savage, “[T]his critical component to a free election, the transparent tabulation of votes, will not be handled by individual precincts but by a company over which we will have little control…The problem is that once the votes are merged, it will be impossible to go back and check their integrity at the local level. It is very likely that this is the final step in Barack Obama’s corruption of the voting process. It has the promise of enabling him and his cohorts to control the outcomes of federal elections with no accountability. On top of that it’s one more step toward a global government.”

There are no Americans on the Board of Directors of Scytl—but CEO Pere Valles once lived and worked in Barack’s old stomping grounds, Chicago. From the Scytl website:

Mr. Valles joined Scytl in March 2004 after spending most of his professional career in the United States. Prior to joining Scytl, Mr. Valles was Vice-President and Chief Financial Officer of GlobalNet, a NASDAQ publicly-traded telecommunications company headquartered in Chicago. Mr. Valles assisted GlobalNet in becoming one of the leading providers of Voice-over-IP in the world and was instrumental in the successful sale of the company to the Titan Corporation, a NYSE defense company.

At GlobalNet, Mr. Valles was responsible for designing and executing the strategic plan that led to an increase in revenues from US$ 25 million to over US$ 100 million and brought the company to profitability. Previously, Mr. Valles had worked as Senior Manager for KPMG‘s Mergers & Acquisitions group in Los Angeles and Miami providing financial and strategic consulting services to private equity groups and corporations involved in acquisitions in the United States, Latin America and Europe. During his career at KPMG, Mr. Valles actively participated in more than 20 transactions in the telecommunications and technology areas. Mr. Valles has a bachelor degree in Economics and a bachelor degree in Law from the University of Barcelona and a MBA (summa cum laude) from Indiana University.

In 2008 the Florida Department of State looked into using Scytl’s remote voting system but turned it down. Their reasons:

Our findings identified vulnerabilities that, in the worst case, could result in (i) voters being unable to cast votes, (ii) an election result that does not accurately reflect the will of the voters, or (iii) disclosure of confidential information, such as the votes cast by a voter. The extent to which these vulnerabilities could actually be exploited in the ODBP is beyond the scope of this report given our lack of system context. Secure handling and audit of the Voter Choice Records may defend against some or all of these vulnerabilities, but these procedures were not available for review.

We identify three findings of particular significance:

The use of supervised polling stations provides significantly better protection against voter coercion or vote- 
selling than is present in some other absentee voting systems, such as voting by mail.
Two copies of each vote are stored: one electronically, and another on paper as a Voter Choice Record. This pro- vides redundancy that is not present in existing vote-by-mail systems. If the electronic votes are well-protected, then they can enable audit of the paper records in ways that are not currently possible.

After casting their ballot, each voter is given a receipt that is intended to give voters confidence that their votes were “Counted as Cast”. These receipts do not achieve their stated goal of allowing voters to “independently verify that their ballots have been correctly accounted for.” These receipts might indicate that a vote was received and decrypted by the county (a property not typically provided by current postal voting systems), but they do not provide assurance that the voter’s vote was correctly recorded.

Also interesting to note, one of the organizations on “Scytl Partners” tab is Oracle, a major supporter to all-things-Democrat. And another Scytl Partner is a spooky “global governance” organization calledGov2u.org. Check them out. Yikes.

There are many, many reasons for all of us to be concerned about Obama’s choice in vote-counting this November—yet no one seems to be up-in-arms about this other than Michael Savage and a handful of Internet bloggers.

Just How Corrupt Will The United States Voting System Be In 2012 – VIRALIZE

***

ADMIN: “When In HELL Are You People Going To WAKE UP ?!?!”

***

Massive and Potential documented voting machine FRAUD has led the True Democracy Party to one Conclusion. You can not trust voting machines, period. There is an overwhelming mountain of evidence of fraud and manipulation of these machines.

TDP and most Americans (when they learn the truth about the VM’s) want Paper Ballots Only, and Dedicated Voting Stations.
How will we count the millions of votes? This is the most frequently asked question.
We will count them like we used to, by hand. The computer is relatively new to the scene. We use to count ballots, not only by hand, but the count would almost always be finished between 1 or 2am, in time for newspaper final print and distribution.
This always astounded me.

Do we need to go back to Paper Ballots? TDP says YES!!! Though this is only one method used by Republicans to steal US Elections. We must address them all. The VOTE is one of our most Important Rights in a Democracy.

There are dozens, if not hundreds of videos about these voting machines and fraud and corruption. This is only a small sampling.
And it’s rarely talked about. That’s about to change!

JURY NULLIFICATION 101: “Time To Take The Law Back” Time to start taking back America!

NH: Jury nullification bill = chance to question judges – court

Jury Nullification 101

WHY JURY NULLIFICATIONS WILL TRANSFORM AMERICA

AND

WHY YOU WANT TO BE A JURY EDUCATOR

The renaissance of true trial by jurors who know they can “nullify” or “veto” any bad law will have many direct benefits upon our nation:

The gradual precipitation of a peaceful “Jury Revolution”.

The eradication of most unpopular, oppressive laws and regulations.

The drastic reduction of government abuse of power and mistreatment of citizens.

The profound reduction of power in the hands of government employees and the return of this power to the rightful owners – the people.

And it will have even more dramatic indirect and long-term effects:

Slashing the size, budget and power of the worst bureaucracies; closing some down entirely.

Forcing politicians to work for the people instead of special interest groups and bureaucrats.

Slashing spending and taxes. Saving billions of dollars of the taxpayers’ money.

Helping to awaken a sense of good citizenship among the people.

Driving the corrupt, criminal and defective out of politics and government employment.

THE REASONS WHY:

There is no legitimate debate on the central question.

Judges are caught red-handed in a huge lie! On the fundamental question of whether or not the jury has the power to “veto” or “nullify” (in the case they are hearing) any law that violates its conscience, there is no real debate possible. This is why lawyers and judges try to ignore and evade the Jury Education movement. If they enter into a public debate outside the courtroom with a well-informed, articulate and reasonably experienced Jury Educator they will be badly beaten and embarrassed, every time.

FACT: Judges may not and do not overturn a verdict of “not guilty” in criminal trials, even when the defendant freely admits he broke the “law”. A “jury veto” is absolute and final. To be sure, judges will try hard to prevent a jury veto by various bluffs and subterfuges: Jury tampering “instructions”; an invalid and unenforceable “jury oath” to accept the law as written, to ignore conscience and common sense; and various other tricks. All of the judges’ tricks are in fact Jury Tampering, which is a felony.

To defeat a judge who would try to pressure jurors to return to the jury room and to change their verdict to guilty, (which occasionally does happen) all jurors have to do is to say to the judge:”Your honor, with all due respect, our verdict is final.” Then the jurors could just fold their arms and stare at the judge!

A crime has been committed against the people by judges and lawyers. The crime continues and a coverup is in effect. It is probably the greatest political scandal of American history. However, all we have to do to defeat the judges and the lawyers is to educate enough people about the true power of the jury.

The greatest statesmen and jurists in American history have stated very clearly the rights and powers of the jury. Anyone who doubts this merely needs to review the Quotations for Jury Educators and read some of the many excellent articles written on the subject:

John Jay, the first Chief Justice of the U. S. Supreme Court stated in 1789: “The jury has the right to judge both the law as well as the fact in controversy.”

Samuel Chase, U. S. Supreme Court Justice and signer of the Declaration of Independence, said in 1796: “The jury has the right to determine both the law and the facts. ”

U. S. Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes said in 1902: “The jury has the power to bring a verdict in the teeth of both law and fact.”

Harlan F. Stone, the 12th Chief Justice of the U. S. Supreme Court, stated in 1941: “The law itself is on trial quite as much as the cause which is to be decided.”

In a 1972 decision (U. S. v Dougherty, 473 F 2nd 1113, 1139), the U.S. Supreme Court said: “The pages of history shine on instances of the jury’s exercise of its prerogative to disregard instructions of the judge.”

America’s second President, John Adams, said in 1771: “It is not only [the juror’s] right, but his duty… to find the verdict according to his own best understanding, judgment, and conscience, though in direct opposition to the direction of the court.”


The JURY EDUCATION message is easily understood

“As a juror in a criminal trial you have the right, the power and the duty to vote as your conscience and common sense dictate.The conscience of the juror is the primary reason we have trial by jury in the first place! You do not have to enforce any law that is repugnant to you.

“The judge may try to deceive, control, manipulate, bluff and frighten you. But no judge can stop you from voting your conscience in direct disobedience to any oath, instruction, lecture or other manipulation. You cannot be “overturned” by the judge; you cannot be punished by the judge in any way (except possibly for an angry tirade).

“You merely have to know your rights and understand the judge’s “game” going in. It is, of course, best if everyone on the jury knows about Jury Veto Power before the trial. But it isn’t necessary. And only a couple of people on the jury need to be somewhat sophisticated about the “game” of covert jury intimidation and manipulation played by the judge. Even one educated and confident juror can teach all the rest, at the appropriate time.

“You wield more power as a juror in an important case than you will ever wield in your life! You could wield more power as a juror in an historic case than millions of your fellow citizens will ever enjoy!

“Being on a jury is big deal. It can be a very important and immensely satisfying life experience for you. On a jury you can be heroic and literally make history. Learn your rights and powers and be there.

These and other similar statements are easy to understand by almost anyone. Once the background supporting facts are presented, they are readily believed by conservatives and libertarians and honest liberals. Even those people who on first exposure to jury education reject the message as too revolutionary or radical, will remember later in the jury room if the law in question seems
unjust or foolish to them.

Compare the Jury Education message to other political movements or government exposé type information. Some other issues or movements, of necessity, depend upon complex and difficult information, which is impossible for many people to understand.

JURY EDUCATION saves the taxpayer money

There is no tax hike hidden in the Jury Education concept or movement. To the contrary, one of the indirect effects of a Jury Revolution will be to slash both government spending and taxes. The size, budget and power of many bureaucracies will be reduced, in some cases drastically. Our prisons will hold only real criminals, and this alone will save many billions annually.

NO LEGISLATION IS NEEDED – No politicians are needed either

Not a single politician need support the Jury Education movement for it to succeed. This is further proof of the unique opportunity we have. We already have the right and the power to nullify bad laws; we only need for a critical mass of the American people to understand this power.

Many worthwhile reform movements fail precisely because not enough politicians have the courage and wisdom to enact them. Our so-called “leaders” are subjected to great pressures and temptations that few can withstand. Getting courageous action and real reform out of politicians today has become almost impossible, especially when the opponents to the reform are wealthy and politically connected.

Isn’t it refreshing and freeing to find a concept so powerful, so beneficial and yet not have to need politicians at all to achieve total success? We only need to continue our grass roots public education, and multiply our educational program by using the media, the internet and other means.

Of course, many politicians are supportive. Even a few lawyers, retired judges and law professors are publicly supportive. Many lawyers offer private encouragement to the Jury Education movement. All of these provide useful and appreciated advice and support. But they are not needed.

OFFENSE – not DEFENSE

Trying to stop some undesirable and freedom-stealing new legislation or regulation from being placed on your back is, by definition, being on the defensive.

Jury Education is permanently on the offensive, creating the condition where a law must be supported and desired by most of the people to ever be enforced again. Every single citizen who learns of his or her rights, powers and duties as a juror puts us one step closer to our goal. Nothing that judges and lawyers do can stop us. Our success is cumulative over time – we never have to start over.

In any endeavor you can only win on the offensive. If you are always on the defensive, you can only postpone ultimate defeat and disaster. And you slowly slide into defeat; It is inevitable.

Fighting legislation can cost millions of dollars and millions of hours of volunteer time. Being on the defensive is expensive
and draining. It grinds your supporters up and burns them out. That is what your enemy is counting on. That is why he was smart enough to position himself on the offensive and stay there. Bad legislation that you defeat one year comes back the next year and the fight starts all over again – to just keep the progress that has been made, not to gain anything new. Eventually people get tired and quit and the freedom-stealing legislation passes.

This has been the pattern for every loss of freedom and expansion of government power forced on America for the last 100 years. It is no coincidence that this gradual slide into big, expensive and abusive government and loss of freedoms started about the time of the infamous (Sparf and Hansen vs. U.S.) Supreme Court decision of 1894, where judges were essentially given permission to not tell the jury of their power to nullify or veto bad laws. Since then, because of the peoples’ ignorance and passivity, the judges have dared to shift from passively failing to tell jurors about their power, to actively lying, bluffing and flagrantly tampering with the jury.

Consider the National Rifle Association, potentially the most powerful citizen organization in America. Although referred to as the “powerful gun lobby” by the gun haters, the NRA is in reality weak and is slowly losing. This is because they have been too stupid and uncreative to figure out how to position themselves on the offensive. – The NRA is also guilty of a couple of other just as basic errors or failures. In general, the forces of “liberalism” (socialism; statism) are usually on the offensive and the forces of “conservatism” (freedom; limited government) have been so naive, they remain on the defensive.
Aren’t you tired of wasting your time, money and energy on the defensive, where victory never comes. Certainly you can understand what every smart kid who plays a sport knows: you can’t win on defense! Are you ready to get on offense by being a Jury Educator?
In 1789, Thomas Jefferson wrote in a letter to Thomas Paine:” I consider trial by jury as the only anchor ever yet imagined by men, by which the government can be held to the principles of its constitution.”

Jefferson understood the unique power over government that the jury gives to the people. As you continue to read this, so will you.

WE “PLAY ON OUR FIELD”

Because the Jury Education movement operates outside the courtroom, beyond the judges’ power to crush freedom of speech, we have another great advantage. We don’t have to go into court and attempt expensive and often futile lawsuits or the like. Instead we operate in the realm of public education, publicity, talking to the media, using the internet, talk radio, conducting demonstrations in front of the courthouse and in many other places. We have free speech, and we can leverage that free speech in creative ways to bring powerful societal and psychological pressure upon the judges.

For instance, we don’t have to limit our public education and demonstrations to the courthouse or other government buildings. Judges are guilty of Jury Tampering and other serious crimes. Judges are trapped in immoral behavior, that damages them, their families and our nation. Therefore we can and should enlist the judges’ families, friends and associations in the effort to free the judges from their corrosive beliefs and behavior. We can and should expose, embarrass and humiliate all judges for this crime against the people.

Do not feel sorry for the judges. Remember, many judges now use shame routinely upon people they convict in their courtrooms.

Judges include provisions in their sentencing designed to publicly shame and humiliate the convicted person for his crime and make an example out of him to the community. It is time that the Jury Education movement and all other legal reform movements start to routinely use the same strategy on judges. “What’s good for the goose, is good for the gander.”

Judges are very vulnerable here; this is their Achilles heel. Judges, more than most people ( and sometimes their wives and
mothers and children), are very concerned about their “good name” and prestige in the community. Many judges are mediocre lawyers who wanted to become judges so they could “feel better about themselves” and have more prestige. When you expose the judges’
crimes and abuses in this way, you take all these advantages of being a judge away. You are also potentially drafting the judges family and close friends into working for you! If as a result of some judges lies and corruption at the courthouse, his wife or children also become social outcasts, what do you think will happen to that judge – and in his own home! The judge has absolutely no defense against this. This creates infinitely more pressure on judges’ than picketing in front of the courthouse or similar actions. Every other judge who hears about it will get a much needed “attitude adjustment”, long before he becomes the subject of such a campaign.

We can and should demonstrate and leaflet in front of a judge’s church, in front of his kid’s school, in front of his mother’s house, in front of his civic and social clubs. To pressure all judges as a group we should leaflet and demonstrate at all important civic and cultural events. This would include the symphony, opera, theater, charity fund raisers and galas, etc. We can easily and inexpensively exert pressure and leverage upon judges that forces them to reconsider whether their lies are worth it .

It is lawful, moral and biblical to take such actions. See Mathew 18: 15-17 and see the book Tell The Church (unpublished) and website for additional information on this concept.

By using the Tell The Church idea the Jury Education Movement is engaged in effective “psychological warfare” against a corrupt and recalcitrant judiciary and legal establishment.

JURY EDUCATION IS A SOLUTION – NOT JUST ANOTHER PROBLEM

Learning that you have real power and influence that no one can take away from you is always good news. Therefore the Jury Education message is encouraging and empowering for people to hear and understand.
Today, too much of what we hear of an exposé nature is problem, problem, PROBLEM! With no real and effective solution even suggested. What such information does to most people is to turn them off to the issues, depress them or make them into cynics. It has been said (by a cynic) that the day that most people wake up to what is going on is the day that they give up trying to do anything about it. Unfortunately, there is a lot of truth to this. But perhaps the reason for this is not inherent within the people hearing the message but rather in the thoughtless and often toxic messengers of doom and gloom, who only talk about problems but have no good solutions?

Isn’t it time people stopped studying, bemoaning and broadcasting endless problems while doing nothing to solve a single one. Too many people have inadvertantly become experts on why nothing can be done, because they are unaware of any solutions.
Jury nullification is a powerful solution to a whole spectrum of problems (more later). While nothing is a panacea, Jury Nullification and the Jury Education movement are perhaps the best single solution out there.

JURY EDUCATION HEALS APATHY

The news of freedom-stealing politicians and bureau_rats being “struck down” by a Jury Veto of 12 ordinary people will be received enthusiastically and even gleefully by millions of people. Events like this remind people how powerful they are too. Jury Nullification actually teaches people that we are superior to government. We are above the politicians, the bureau_rats and the judges. We are in charge! This is how Self-government is supposed to work!

“The jury which is the most energetic means of making the people rule, is also the most effective means of teaching it to rule”

Alexis de Tocqueville – Democracy in America

The Jury Education message can actually heal apathy, depression and cynicism -at least of a political nature. The understanding of the awesome power of the jury makes people want to get on a jury, rather than “duck jury duty”. Everybody likes to participate when they have real power. Nobody likes being manipulated and played for a fool. And people can smell when they are being manipulated.

The real reason so many people try to duck jury duty is because judges and lawyers are guilty of systematic jury tampering and manipulation.

The real reason for any bad jury verdict such as in the O.J. Simpson trial, the Menendez trial and similar trials is because of the misconduct of prosecutors, lawyers and especially judges. You treat people like fools and children and they will get even.

They will act like children. They will misbehave and bring in “corrupt” verdicts. (More on this in “Why Jurors Misbehave”)

When a person comes to truly understand and internalize his rights, powers and responsibilities as a juror, there can occur within him a fundamental change in his general attitude toward government and towards citizenship. He no longer sees himself as without power and at the mercy of abusive bureau_rats. He is no longer as likely to become as frustrated by cowardly and stupid politicians. He no longer sees himself as a permanent victim of government; never again will he fear government. He knows he can wield real power to fundamentally change government. He knows he is senior and the politicians and bureau_rats are junior. Jury nullification is his evidence and a Jury Revolution of millions of nullifications is absolute proof.

People do not want to participate in any activity where they have no power and are routinely controlled, manipulated and played for fools. People do want to participate whenever they have real power to beneficially effect the outcome. Jury education heals apathy and creates good citizens.

While you can never “heal” everyone, this will be the end of citizen apathy, cowardice and cynicism for tens of millions of people.

JURY EDUCATION HAS BROAD SUPPORT

Individuals and groups across the political and social spectrum support the renaissance of true trial by jury and have become jury educators: Democrats, Republicans, Libertarians, Greens, Independents, liberals, conservatives, pro-life, pro-choice, religious people, atheists, environmentalists, industrialists, business owners, farmers, ranchers, miners, pro-gun, anti-war, drug decriminalization … the range of support is unprecedented. Whatever group(s) you fit into, as a Jury Educator, you have allies you never had before. All sorts of people know that many laws are bad and that government routinely abuses power and people. They know that the jury puts power back into the hands of the people, where it belongs.

What this means to the movement is we can achieve our goal of a peaceful Jury Revolution sooner. What this means to you as an individual jury educator is there is less work for you to do. People you don’t even like are helping you!

JURY EDUCATION WINS WITH UNDER 50%

We don’t need to educate everyone in order to achieve a restoration of true trial by jury and precipitate a Jury Revolution. We only need to educate that “critical mass” or “critical percent” of the population that will make it impossible for a prosecutor and judge to empanel a jury that does not have at least one individual (preferably more) who is knowledgeable about the power of the jury. The theoretical critical mass is only one out of twelve or 8% of the jury pool (all registered voters).
However, because of the present tactics of judges and prosecutors to uncover and kick off the jury anyone who knows the truth about the jury’s power and other tactics of intimidation, tampering, “jury stacking”, etc. a realistic critical mass is probably around 30% to 40%. This number should be more than enough to overwhelm any jury tampering and “jury stacking” by the judge or the prosecutor.

As activists we do not need to laboriously and personally educate even this number of people across the nation. Criminal trials, especially when they end with a jury nullification verdicts, can achieve significant media coverage. The media coverage from a single jury nullification in a small state or even in a tiny town somewhere could get national coverage and thereby help educate millions of people all over the country about the power of the jury to nullify bad laws.

Consider in the near future a jury nullification verdict happening somewhere in America. After the jurors are dismissed by the judge, they immediately walk outside of the courthouse (with the former defendant if they choose) and walk straight up to the TV cameras and newspaper reporters and explain why they nullified the law and why they had the right and power to do so. And they explain exactly how the judge unsuccessfully tried to bluff them, intimidate them and tamper with them. They go on to publicly demand that the local Grand Jury indict this judge immediately for felony jury tampering and indict all the local or state judges for conspiracy to commit jury tampering, among other indictments. This scenario can happen and it will happen. This is a Jury Revolution and it can spread to all states overnight once it happens in one state.

NO ONE LIKES LAWYERS

The general public already regards lawyers, as a group, as morally defective. And lawyers have earned their reputation; they deserve it. Lawyers hate other lawyers; lawyers wives don’t like them; and we have reports that some lawyers mothers don’t like them either!

Part of the Jury Education message is the reminder that judges are merely lawyers who work for the government!

Judges are subject to all of the character defects of lawyers in general. Judges are exposed to tremendous pressure and temptations. And all judges are effected by them. To be sure, there are some excellent judges and judges of fine character. However, some lawyers will tell you that some of their worst become judges. (Read Gerry Spence’s books. Spence is devastatingly critical of judges.) There was a line in a recent TV show: One TV lawyer says to another – “..ambitious and incompetent, you’ll be a judge someday..”

This is not to unfairly beat up on judges. This is to knock them off their pedestals of usurped power, false prestige and undeserved respect. For, right now, judges do not deserve respect or prestige.
ALWAYS REMEMBER: Even the most honest (criminal court) judges are guilty of participating in a wholesale conspiracy to usurp the jury’s power, tamper with the jury and other crimes. Even the most honest judges are passively and silently allowing other judges to destroy trial by jury. And it does not matter how much pressure they are under from other judges to keep quiet and go along.

They are still guilty. It does not matter that the lying and jury tampering started over 100 years ago, before they were born.

They are still guilty. It does not matter that nobody told them about this in law school. They know about it now, and they must tell the truth now. It does not matter that judges assert that the wholesale use of jury nullifications would lead to “chaos” and “shake the legal system to its foundation”. So what! Freedom itself is “chaos” — to a tyrant! The judges are still guilty . all of them. Do not feel sorry for them. Do not trust them. Demand that judges come clean and tell the truth, and slowly.they will.

NO ONE TRUSTS LAWYERS

Lawyers have destroyed their credibility with the public and have earned a reputation as liars and manipulators. Once a person learns the jury’s power to nullify bad laws, lawyers and judges can argue and deny the fact as much as they want; nobody will believe them! Lawyers have a lot of money as some have gotten extremely wealthy essentially stealing. Lawyers (and judges) have millions to spend to protect their stolen power. They could launch a campaign of disinformation and outspend the Jury Education movement 100 to 1 or 1,000,000 to 1. It won’t work; nobody will still believe them. In fact, their efforts to tell even more lies will probably only backfire on them. Lawyers are already using their best strategy: hiding.

Once a person “hears” the power of the jury “out of the mouth” of Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Alexis de Toqueville, John Jay (1st Supreme Court Chief Justice), Samuel Chase (Supreme Court Justice), Oliver Wendell Holmes (Supreme Court Justice), Harlan Fiske Stone (Supreme Court Chief Justice – 1940’s) and many other great statesmen, jurists and legal scholars is anybody going to believe today’s lawyers and judges?

AMERICA IS READY FOR THE MESSAGE

Americans are increasingly fed up with government abuse and intrusion. Many people respond enthusiastically and even gleefully that they have the absolute power to “veto” hated laws and thus “shut down” hated bureau_rats and lying judges.
People realize that government is the problem and will never be the solution. Government has passed the point of no return; it cannot reform itself. Only the people can reform government and we will by using a “Jury Revolution”

JURY VETOS ARE FORCE – NOT JUST PRESSURE

For over 700 years, trial by jury has been the only way for the people to personally and peacefully force the government to stop abusing power. Voting, lobbying, letter writing, picketing, etc. are merely means for citizens to put pressure on government to change. Unfortunately, these all depend on politicians being convinced by the citizens’ arguments, being uncharacteristically courageous.. And then taking the requested action.

A million letters, calls and e-mails to congress can be ignored. A jury veto is absolute and final and all the Congress and all the judges cannot overturn it. A few dozen jury vetos of a particular law, sometimes more, and sometimes less and that law is essentially dead. Why waste millions of dollars trying to get apathetic citizens to write whiny letters to cowardly congressmen and spineless senators? Why not become Jury Educators and start a Jury Revolution? Why not have some fun? Why not be smart? Why not go on offense? Why not win for a change?

JURY NULLIFICATIONS ARE PSYCHOLOGICAL WARFARE

Whenever a prosecutor loses a case it is unpleasant for him. The jury didn’t believe him. Similarly the police who made the arrest and testified in court often get angry or depressed. The jury just called them liars or worse. Prosecutors and cops do not like to lose in court. Go ask them.

But when prosecutors and cops and judges get nullified..Now the pain of defeat goes up exponentially. Before they were embarrassed; now they are absolutely humiliated. With a mere acquittal the jury tacitly said “We don’t believe you.” When a jury vetos the law itself, the jury is going much further and saying: “Why did you prosecute this person? This is a bad law and you are an abuser of innocent citizens for enforcing it. You just wasted our time and a lot of taxpayer money, etc.”
Prosecutors, cops and the bureau_rats who perpetrated or enforced the bad law cannot emotionally and psychologically handle jury nullifications and never want it to happen to them again. And sometimes one single nullification is enough to convince a particular cop to never arrest a person on that law again. With prosecutors it is more political and the pain may have to build before they quit enforcing bad laws. On the other hand, practical politics (getting re-elected), may motivate the prosecutor to quickly and publicly renounce enforcing a particular law again.

And what about judges and their pain. The judge read his jury tampering instructions, he told the jury that they “must enforce the law as given, no matter how they felt about it” and other lies. He forced the jury to swear a usurping oath to do what he told them to do! He did all his carefully rehearsed theatrics and tricks to impress and control the jury. But the jury called him on all of it! They tacitly called him a jury tamperer as well as a liar. The pain that judges can feel is much deeper and more personnal than even that of prosecutors and cops. The judge places himself in such a high and mighty position with his words, tone, facial expressions, etc. that when the jury knocks him down he has much further to fall. We have heard reports of judges flying into insane rages in their chambers after a jury veto. When a particular judge gets nullified all the other judges know about it and do not like it. They might view the nullified judge as a screw up who “failed to control the jury”. He has created problems for all of them.

Possibly, the greatest psychological benefit of a single jury veto or nullification happens because not only are all other judges watching what happened; but all other cops and prosecutors are watching too. Maybe a lot of the cops didn’t even know what a nullification is, but somebody will tell them. They already know what losing is. All of them hate to lose. And a jury nullification is the worst kind of losing. All of them know what embarassment, humiliation and public condemnation– neighbors and friends laughing at them.. are too. And most cops, prosecutors and judges don’t want any of it to happen to them. They look at their colleagues who “got jury nullified” and pray “Oh God, please don’t let that happen to me!” Jury nullifications are sort of like dominoes. Once one goes down, more and more tend to go down; until it becomes a flood. So either a lot of cops and prosecutors or all them are going to get humiliated. It is up to them.

And so one at a time, in their own way, every cop, every prosecutor, every bureau_rat and every judge will surrender to the people and their Jury Revolution. They will stop the self-deceptions and sophistries: “I was just doing my job” or “I didn’t make the law”, “It’s not my fault”, “They made me do it”, “I was just following orders”, etc. The best among them will regain their honor and join the people. The worst will go away or even go to prison.

There is only one way to escape from the pain. And that is to stop enforcing the bad laws. Which bad laws? All of them. Stop enforcing all the laws that the jury keeps telling you are bad. This is a Jury Revolution and this is the way America is supposed to work. Yes, eventually the legislatures will repeal the bad laws, long after jurors have killed them dead. That is the way America works also. Politicians and legislators are not leaders; they are followers and they always have been. Read the Quotes for Jury Educators. Study the history of jury nullification.

Right now we have a lot of bad laws, bad government and bad bureau_rats, precisely because judges have been lying to jurors for a long time. There will be major changes in government and in the legal system. These changes will be cathartic and painful to some. Egos will be bruised. Careers will end in disgrace. Prison guards, prosecutors and judges will be laid off. But we can get through the changes. It will all work out. And a peaceful and thoughtful Jury Revolution is infinitely better than the alternatives.

“The people are the masters of both Congress and the courts, not to overthrow the Constitution, but to overthrow the men who pervert it!” Abraham Lincoln

JURY POWER WON’T DISAPPOINT YOU

Jury nullication of bad laws is a centuries-old pillar of freedom and self-government. It is dependable; creates fundamental freedoms and strikes down government foolishness and tyrants automatically whenever the people use it consistently. It is not some weak and flawed candidate or politician who will lie to you, fail you, “change his mind” and betray you. It is not some citizen initiative which will fail to be adopted, get struck down as unconstitutional, get out smarted by legislators who pass new laws to defeat it, etc.

JURY NULLIFICATION REMOVES THE MOTIVE

Jury nullifications “automatically” or “naturally” eliminate bad laws. Most bad laws typically benefit some special interest group, but harm the majority of the people. Most bad laws typically got enacted because the good folks in the legislature got tricked or bribed (again) by the lobbyists to give some special interest group what they want while the people and freedom itself get screwed – again.

During a full blown Jury Revolution it will be impossible for any of these kinds of “laws” to survive. Bad laws will all
eventually be killed by jury nullifications. The huge financial cost to special interests to enact those bad laws will become a total loss.

It is expensive for special interest groups to make dupes and whores out of your public servants. It takes a lot of time and money. It is a big investment. They have to get a return on their money. If the “laws” they get enacted are easily and cheaply (virtually automatically) destroyed by jury nullifications, where is the motive for a special interest group or lobbyist to spend all that money to bribe all those politicians? There isn’t one! Jury Nullification removes the motive to pass bad laws and to bribe politicians.
——————

JURY NULLIFICATIONS ELIMINATE CORRUPTION

Jury nullifications will obviously reduce corruption among judges and prosecutors. But they will do more.
Because jury nullification removes the motive for all the corrupting money to come to Washington (and into every state capitol) then obviously good people won’t be getting corrupted by it.

True, some people who come to Washington as politicians, staffers, lawyers (250,000), lobbyists, party apparatchiks, etc. don’t need corrupting. They were already corrupt, and that’s why they got the idea to go to Washington in the first place.
Senator John McCain is concerned about the corrupting influence of all that special interest and lobbyist money on your noble public servants. McCain and others are concerned that all the campaign bucks, the partying, the junkets, the flattery, the begging for more and more money are unseemly and corrosive to the morals of our congressmen.
I agree with McCain and I like him. I admire him greatly for his incredible courage long ago at a place called the “Hanoi Hilton”. So I tread lightly when I correct John McCain.

However, I must. Senator McCain is somewhat correct regarding the effects of “all that money”, etc. Not only does all that money and the whole scene in Washington corrupt good people, it draws the weak of character into political office and into public service in the first place. “All that money” and all that prestige, fame and glory magnetizes the wrong kind of people into politics. They are egoists and prima donnas, if not outright crooks.

But, Senator McCain doesn’t have a clue how to solve the problem; he doesn’t even know what the real problem is. To pass a law that is a blatant attack on Freedom of Speech . I don’t know what to say. The McCain Feingold Bill is an inexcusable and unconstitutional attack on Freedom of Speech and yet the Congress figured out how they were going to beat it, before they even passed it.

The true solution is Jury nullification and a Jury Revolution. When you Remove the Motive (see above) for special interests to give so much money to politicians, you have done a great deal to eliminate the corrupting influence of money and you haven’t destroyed Freedom of Speech, as an unintended consequence, as John McCain unfortunately advocates.

JURY EDUCATION SOLVES MANY PROBLEMS

Concerned about losing your guns? Overregulation of your business? Private property rights? Persecution of alternative healers? Attacks on your freedom to buy vitamins? Ridiculous environmental laws? Loss of your Freedom of Speech? Sick and tired of an insane and failed “war on drugs”? Tired of the prisons being filled with people whose only crime was to “assault” the ego of some bureau_rat? Hate laws? Political Correctness twaddle?

Jury Education will help (or totally) solve all of these problems and more. The reason we have these government caused problems is because judges have been lying to jurors for so long and the bureau_rats ran amok. Government abuse of power and stupidity cannot exist in the same nation with universally educated and empowered jurors.

Therefore, you as a jury educator can correct a whole range of problems by working on just one solution. Is that an efficient use of your time? What problems do you want to solve? How many of them can be benefitted or solved totally by jury nullifications? Then why not fix all of them at once? Tell the people about jury nullification and then “let nature take its course”. Let the jurors “veto” out of existence all of the things about government that make you angry.

JURY EDUCATION IS EXTREMELY COST EFFECTIVE

For the same expense as one major state legislative campaign, a critical mass of the voters (in a small state like Idaho) can be educated regarding their power to nullify bad laws.

Or, for the cost of defeating one major piece of bad legislation, the condition can be created where ALL bad legislation (past, present, and future) will be “automatically” swept off the books by jury nullifications.

Or, for the cost of defeating just one bad politician, the condition can be created where ALL bad politicians will be defeated and neutered permanently. And at the same time ALL bad judges and ALL bad bureau_rats will be defeated also.

Or, for the cost of putting one “good politician” into power, we can put the people back into power permanently.

Is this not the greatest political bargain in American history?

(Note: The estimated cost of a statewide jury education campaign assumes the activists will be optimally efficient and frugal, and do most of the legwork as unpaid volunteers. They should spend most of their money on millions of short fliers, protest signs and the like. The distribution of the educational materials to the public would be by means that are free or essentially free like doing demonstrations to get TV coverage, web-sites, getting on talk radio and lots of volunteers actually getting off their ass and going out and distributing the fliers and doing demonstrations. This is how activists should behave anyway and not engage in the gold-plated, consultant-driven TV ad campaigns of politicians.)

HOW SOON CAN IT HAPPEN

Let’s take a lesson from the world of sports. In 1953 almost everyone said that it was physically impossible to for a man to run a mile in under four minutes. Doctors, scientists and other “experts” invoked lung capacity, heart size, energy reserves, blood sugar, fatigue, etc. to “prove” their case.

Then, in 1954 Roger Bannister broke the “four minute barrier”. He achieved this feat because he did not believe it was impossible. He did not accept that there was a barrier there at all. He rejected the pronouncements of the experts.

Now this is a good story, so far, but the most instructive and inspiring part of the story is that within one year of Bannister’s achievement, thirty-seven more men had duplicated it! And within two years, three hundred men had done what was “impossible” a short time before! A breakthrough by one man had knocked down all the psychological barriers to running a four minute mile. A single person had also knocked down the conventional wisdom of the entire distance running world including all the athletes, doctors, trainers and coaches. One person had created the condition where hundreds of people could now “do the impossible.”

Today, many experts, political activists, political scientists, lawyers and judges say that it is impossible to achieve a return to true trial by educated or informed jury. These “experts” say it is impossible to return to a world where jury nullifications are happening routinely and often in massive numbers; where no bad law can survive for long. The experts invoke corrupt and desperate judges, bloated and dictatorial government, over-regulation, vicious bureau_rats, apathetic people, bad schools, ignorant teachers, generations of dumbed-down students, etc. ad nauseum. Some “experts” say “maybe it could happen but it will take a long, long time.”

All of these “experts” are wrong and a breakthrough in as little as one small state will prove it. A single state that achieves a critical mass condition regarding knowledge of jury nullification in the jury pool, will do to our corrupt and jury tampering judges what Roger Bannister did to the “four minute barrier” in 1954.

Once a Jury Revolution breakthrough happens in one state, it will happen across the country very quickly, like a dam bursting. The rest of the country will become fully informed of their power to nullify bad law, not so much by the jury education activists but by the media and by the internet. There will be a rolling momentum of publicity as state after state goes “critical mass” regarding knowledge of the jury’s power. We live in the information age. We have television, 24 hour cable news, radio, internet radio, talk radio, e-mail, web-sites, fax machines, etc.

A single jury nullification in a criminal trial is big news, especially if the jury educators are smart enough to “engineer” the media. An “epidemic” of jury nullifications, even in one state, can create a national media firestorm, if jury educators and their supporters help to keep it going and get the most educational value from it.

All we need are jury education activists who have enough vision and commitment to make it happen in one state and then help orchestrate the media flood that will follow.

JURY EDUCATION DESERVES YOUR SUPPORT

Why not take a moment and mentallyadd up all the money and all the time you have contributed to political candidates and political causes over the years. Compare that to the benefit those politicians political movements produced for you and for the country.

Are you satisfied with what you have been getting? Would you like a better return on your investment? A better return is available now. Will you become a Jury Educator, working with millions of others, helping to create a renaissance of true trial by jury— the “anchor” of Thomas Jefferson, the protector of our constitution and of all of our freedoms?

Judges LIE To Jurors

Judges Lie To Jurors – all the time in criminal trials, especially when the law is unpopular or abusive. Judges are guilty of destroying the most important function of trial by jury – which is the elimination of foolish, unnecessary and freedom-stealing laws. Judges try to steal the jury’s greatest power and turn independent jurors into puppets. Thus, judges protect bad government and enable government abuses of power to continue.

When you serve on a jury in a criminal trial, you have the right, the power and the duty to vote as your conscience and common sense dictate.

Because the conscience and common sense of jurors is the whole reason we have jury trials in the first place!

Yet judges routinely lie to jurors and try to manipulate them into ignoring conscience and common sense – and doing what the judge wants. This is called “jury tampering”, which is a felony. But judges get away with it simply because not enough people understand what is happening.

John Adams, who later became the 2nd U.S. President, in 1771 said of the juror: “it is not only his (the juror’s) right, but his duty.to find the verdict according to his own best understanding, judgement and conscience, though in direct opposition to the direction of the courtQuoted in Yale Law Journal, 74(1964): 173.

“The law itself is on trial quite as much as the cause which is to be decided.” Harlan F. Stone, 12thChiefJustice, U.S. Supreme Court, 1941.

John Jay, first ChiefJustice, U.S. Supreme Court, In Georgia v. Brailsford, 1794:4, said: “The jury has a right to judge both the law as well as the fact in controversy”.

(On the Internet you will find dozens more similar quotations from America’s greatest statesmen and judges supporting “jury nullification”, “jury veto” or “jury independence”. ) See: http://www.freedomlaw.com/JRYQuot.html and
http://jctmac.tripod.com/jurynull.html among other sites

As a juror, you are the final safeguard against bad government, foolish legislators, freedom-stealing laws, abuses of power, etc.

If you feel that the law is bad . or there are other factors that would make you regret a vote to convict (even when the defendant clearly broke the “law”), you have the right, the power and the duty to vote “Not Guilty”.

This is known as “jury veto power” or “jury nullification”.

Jury Veto Power is the most powerful and available tool the people have to control their government. Americans have forgotten that the jury is in fact a “Fourth Branch of Government” and has veto power over all the rest of government.

Government abuses power in only one way: by enforcing bad laws. If bad government cannot enforce its bad laws, then bad government will soon be out of business. Take a moment and think of all the foolish, intrusive, abusive and unconstitutional laws that exist today. Think about all the things about government that make you angry. Think about anti-gun laws, anti-vitamin laws, anti-business laws, phony environmental laws, failed drug laws. Think about government attacks on freedom, justice and common sense everywhere! Think about government agencies, bureau_rats, prosecutors and judges who use bad laws to intimidate and harm innocent Americans. Jury Veto Power is the deliberately hidden solution to all of this.

Jury Veto Power is the Achilles heel of bad government. Jury veto power is your greatest power as a citizen – far greater than your power as a voter. Jury Veto Power gave the nation of England Freedom of Religion and of Assembly (1670). Jury Veto Power gave America absolute Freedom of the Press and of Speech (1735); helped end slavery (1850’s); gave workers the right to strike (1880’s-90’s; ended prohibition (1930’s) – to mention only a few. Jury nullifications are the people’s peaceful method of “pruning away” government abuse and stupidity.

Thomas Jefferson, in a letter to Thomas Paine, 1789, said: “I consider trial by jury as the only anchor ever yet imagined by man, by which a government can be held to the principles of its constitution.”

The problem is judges lie to jurors and manipulate jurors in a deliberate attempt to stop the jury from performing this most important function. Why does government seem to only get worse, no matter who gets elected to office?! Simple — we forgot about the power of the jury and we believed the lies of judges.

The problem of lying and jury tampering judges is not new. For centuries, some judges have tried to cover up the jury’s power and manipulate jurors. The best judges and statesmen resisted this usurpation of power – and we have many excellent quotes to prove it. In 1894, immoral and corrupt judges won the “debate” within the judiciary with a bitter split decision (Sparf) in the U.S. Supreme Court (quotes available).

Today, most judges seem to feel that since they “got away” with this crime a long time ago, they should not be confronted and exposed today. It’s embarassing for judges to admit that they are liars and jury tamperers. Some judges cowardly smear jury nullification, but they will not publicly debate experienced jury educators. They can’t debate; they have nothing to stand on but lies and sophistries. A few judges and many lawyers want to tell the truth publicly, but they are afraid of career-destroying retaliation from the legal establishment. As always, fundamental reform in government must come from the people. That means the solution is you.

WARNING: Judges are very skilled at bluffing and intimidating jurors. They use “instructions” and “jury oaths” that are fraudulent and unenforceable. During jury selection, they try to find out who knows about jury veto power and throw them off the jury. Do not be afraid of the judge. As a juror, you are superior to him – the judge rightfully is the servant of the jury. (Watch the judge stand up when the jury enters the courtroom.) You can defeat the judge and vote your conscience and fulfill your sacred duty as a juror – but you must know how.

Your verdict of “Not Guilty” to veto a bad law cannot be overturned. It is absolutely final. You cannot be punished for your verdict as a juror. The judge cannot force a jury to change their verdict or to keep deliberating when a jury is truly and sincerely deadlocked. This proves that the jury has boththe right and the power to veto bad laws. But the judge will try to trick and bluff the jury into doing what he wants. If you know how, you can be a real and powerful juror and not a mere puppet or stooge.

Jury veto power is a solution to many serious problems. Therefore, this isyour opportunity to be part of that solution. No new laws are needed; no politicians are needed. We have the power now to peacefully eliminate all bad laws. More “jury educators” are all that is needed. You can easily become a “jury educator”. You can help create a peaceful “jury revolution”, whether you are ever on a jury, or not. Are you smart enough to understand this? Do you have the courage to do something constructive and powerful with this information? Do you care enough about your country or about your children and grandchildren to take effective action now?

What Can You Do? Learn a little more and then tell others – a few or many people – whatever is right for you. Be a “jury educator”. That’s all that is needed. Copy this flier or other similar material (from the internet) and give it to others. Use e-mail, fliers, talk radio, etc. Use your imagination! You will be very glad you did. If you personally know a judge, learn more and then confront him, as a true friend should. Tell all his friends and family too. Tell his church and his civic and social clubs. If you know anyone who knows a judge, give them this information. This is an extremely serious moral failure among the judges. Judges are trapped in a web of denial, lies and vicious peer pressure. Some judges suffer from great arrogance and pride.

Some fear the loss of undeserved power, prestige and respect. Some may fear being prosecuted for jury tampering. All judges fear
“professional retaliation” from other judges and the “legal industry” if they were to openly tell the truth.

If judges are going to tell the truth, they are probably going to need the intervention of church, family and friends – who know the facts and can’t be fooled by denials and excuses. And they are probably going to have to face many jurors who “call them” on their lies in court and veto bad laws.

Jury nullification education still barely ‘legal’ in USA, rules judge

(NaturalNews) Jury nullification, a legal concept that dates back to 17th century England, remains perfectly lawful in the United States, according to a ruling by a federal judge last month.

U.S. District Court Judge Kimba Wood said 80-year-old Julian Heicklin, who was arrested by FBI agents for passing out pamphlets marked “Jury Info” from an organization known as the Fully Informed Jury Association to an undercover agent, was within his legal rights under law to do so. Prosecutors had argued that Heicklin was in violation of U.S. law, which prohibits influencing jurors through written communication.

“Heicklen advocates passionately for the right of jurors to determine the law as well as the facts,” Wood wrote. “The pamphlets state that a juror has not just the responsibility to determine the facts of a case before her on the basis of the evidence presented, but also the power to determine the law according to her conscience.”

Jurors can be told about nullification, not about how to decide a specific case

Wood said Heicklen well understood his legal rights, and noted that Title 18 United States Code, which government lawyers cited in their prosecution, prevents trying to influence a juror in relation to specific cases or points of law. Heicklen was not doing that, Wood said.

“The statute thus prohibits a defendant from trying to influence a juror upon any case or point in dispute before that juror by means of a written communication in relation to that case or that point in dispute,” the 27-page order says.

“It also prohibits a defendant from trying to influence a juror’s actions or decisions pertaining to that juror’s duties, but only if the defendant made that communication in relation to a case or point in dispute before that juror,” the order continues. “The statute therefore squarely criminalizes efforts to influence the outcome of a case, but exempts the broad categories of journalistic, academic, political, and other writings that discuss the roles and responsibilities of jurors in general, as well as innocent notes from friends and spouses encouraging jurors to arrive on time or to rush home, to listen closely or to deliberate carefully, but with no relation to the outcome of a particular case.”

Judge the law instead of the lawbreaker

The concept of jury nullification is that jurors should be able to not only decide whether a defendant violated the law, but whether the law itself is just and proper. Another way to describe the process is that it’s a constitutional doctrine allowing juries to acquit defendants who are technically guilty of a crime on the books but who juries don’t feel deserve to be punished. In essence, the jury is saying the law is unfair or unjust.

In Heicklen’s case, Wood wrote, “the court reads the plain text of the [federal] statute to require that a defendant must have sought to influence a juror through a written communication in relation either to a specific case before that juror or to a substantive point in dispute between two or more parties before that juror.” And Heinklen, a retired chemistry professor, didn’t do that, Wood ruled; he was simply informing juries outside a federal courthouse in Manhattan, from October 2009 to May 2010, that they were under no obligation to find defendants guilty of laws they didn’t feel were just or proper.

In his dialogue with the undercover FBI agent who posed as a juror, Heicklen said the pamphlet he was handing out was just general information regarding the nullification process.

“The jury has the right to judge the law as well as the facts. The judge will tell you otherwise, but there are several Supreme Court decisions which said that was true. In other words, if you think the law is unjust you can find a person innocent,” he said, according to a transcript of the conversation released by the court.

Prosecutors argued that “advocacy of jury nullification, directed as it is to jurors, would be both criminal and without Constitutional protections no matter where it occurred.”

“His speech is not protected by the First Amendment,” they added. “No legal system could long survive if it gave every individual the option of disregarding with impunity any law which by his personal standard was judged morally untenable,” they said.

Prosecutors were seeking six months in jail. They didn’t get it.
