Our nation and all of humanity stands at a critical crossroads in history, with Syria as the epicenter of a looming global conflict that will leave no one untouched. Despite a nearly unanimous consensus of the American people against military action in Syria, elements of our government are determined to override the will of the people and push us headlong into war in Syria, which will lead to a much greater conflagration than most are willing to believe or imagine.

As I have extensively written over the last 12 months, we are being pushed into World War III. This war, like others in the past, is based on lies and “false flag” operations, some of which have occurred, some thwarted, and others that loom just over the horizon.

Regular readers of my columns and listeners to my talk show know that the information I’ve provided about Syria and Benghazi has not only been proven accurate, but provided months in advance of the reports by the corporate media and even most conservative talk show hosts. I mention this not for self-aggrandizement, but to validate the credibility and authenticity of my “intelligence insider” who has provided me with this information. He has been extremely accurate on every aspect of what is taking place behind the veil of lies packaged for Western consumption. For the first time ever, this insider has agreed to speak on the record in an exclusive 90-minute interview about what is really taking place behind the curtain of lies and deception.

Despite the risks, he has agreed to lend his voice to the growing opposition to the madness we see taking place at the highest levels of our government, and tell us exactly what appears to be playing out in real-time. The Western-backed uprising in Syria has claimed the lives of around 150,000 men, women and children, and displaced some five million people. If permitted to continue, some estimate the deaths of four million people in Syria alone, with death spread on a wholesale level across the globe. And it’s being done in your name.

The information you will hear in this interview will forever change the way you look at the world today. This source talks explicitly about the incident at the Dyess Air Force Base involving the reported unauthorized shipment of nuclear warheads from that base. The incident at Dyess was broken exclusively by Anthony Gucciardi & Alex Jones of Infowars last Tuesday, on the same day that war hawk Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) made a speech citing the need for the U.S. to attack Syria. During that speech, Graham made the extraordinary and almost surreal statement that failure by the U.S. to intervene could result in nuclear weapons in the hands of terrorists, and that “could result in a [nuclear] bomb coming to Charleston Harbor.” Coincidence?

Consider the incident at Dyess with the details provided by this insider about a little-known incident that took place on Friday, March 8, 1968 involving a rogue Golf II Russian submarine with nuclear missile capabilities and a failed launch against an American city – a false flag event that could have forever changed the course of human history. Never heard of it? Or if you did hear about it, was it the truth?

We have rogue elements within and outside of our government pushing for war. The time clock is running down, and we must wake up, wake others up and take a stand.

This insider did, putting himself and his identity at risk. Why? Because we’re running out of time to stop this madness.

Please listen to this incredible interview here. Meanwhile, please spread it to others so we can collectively stand up against the rogue elements who are intent on exporting death at wholesale levels in your name. In our name. For the sake of all of humanity, it must be stopped.

Events are now racing to accomplish the next step in the agenda of the globalists that will lead us into the unimaginable horrors of World War III. With each passing day, each passing hour, the curtain is being lifted a little more to expose the true agenda of the psychopaths and sociopaths who are leading the charge of war in our name, with our money and despite our apparent collective reluctance illustrated by a recent poll about intervention in Syria, our tacit approval for what is about to take place.

Syria is about to become the international version of Waco, for it is the same lie that is being used now as it was then: “It’s for the children.” We know all too well how the children of Waco fared. It’s not about the children, and never was. If anything, it’s in spite of the children.

“Showtime” in Syria

If you understand exactly what happened at Waco at the Branch Dividian compound, that is the truth rather than the official government and media account, then you will understand that we are on the verge of an international “Waco moment.” The template of terror and tyranny has not changed, but has been expanded and exported. Just as the standoff at Waco began with an ATF operation codenamed “Showtime,” the Syria “standoff” began with the decision to overthrow Assad by arming and training al Qaeda linked terrorists using weapons and arms confiscated from Libya.

The parallels of thought and action between Waco and Syria are eerily similar. The federal government cited deteriorating conditions inside the compound, conditions that they unnecessarily created. It was 51 days when the masterminds of the siege decided that they had to act “for the children.” They used paramilitary and military vehicles to pump CS gas into the compound, which resulted in a conflagration that killed 76 men, women and children. The conflagration was blamed on the actions of the people inside the compound, a claim that remains virtually unchallenged.

Like the situation in Waco, the U.S., under the spell of the globalists, is rapidly pushing Syria from “Showtime” to conflagration, as our leaders are calling for action in retaliation for the gassing of those in Syria. The official narrative that nearly all government leaders are parroting is that Assad is the culprit for the use of chemical weapons, despite the weight of evidence telling a completely different story. Yet the full court press is on, and only the naive or the complicit are buying these claims.

Like Waco, the actions of our government to ostensibly save the children will cause their deaths. Again, it’s really not for the children, but in spite of them, which makes their lies more contemptible and their unchecked actions more abhorrent.

Pelosi, a shameless sociopath

It was just reported that Nancy Pelosi shamelessly used an alleged conversation she had with her 5-year-old grandson to justify her support of military intervention in Syria. She explained to her purportedly inquisitive grandson that she is for war with Syria, but not in Syria, as they’ve killed hundreds of children there.

To Nancy Pelosi and everyone else who has the vile audacity to use children as the acceptable mantra of intervention, I say take a long and hard look at the picture of this little girl chained to a fence by those with whom you and your ilk have allied. It is the heartbreaking image of a toddler living in Eastern Syria, mercilessly shackled to a fence by the very people you support, the very savages you’ve armed, and the very people you consider acceptable to achieve your goal of reshaping the power structure in the Middle East for a seat at the globalists’ table. It was done in our name, using our tax dollars, with your approval but not our consent.

This young girl was forced to watch your “good bad-guys” dismember and murder her parents in sectarian violence that was exacerbated by your actions. At least your grandson won’t have to live with that memory, Mimi. Perhaps when your grandson is old enough to know the truth, he will remember you with the utter contempt you deserve. Just as it became personal for this innocent Syrian child, it might become personal for your protected lineage when the truth is finally known.

Opening the gates of hell

At present, reliable estimates support figures that about 150,000 Syrians have died since “Showtime” in 2011, or since the globalist agenda to topple Assad began in earnest. The orchestrated violence has created more than one million refugees, many Christians, who have since become statistics at the hands of your Muslim henchmen. But the worst is yet to come.

Based on the analysis of Gajendra Singh, a retired Indian diplomat with decades of experience in Middle East affairs and a working understanding of the ethnic makeup of Syria, the toppling of Assad would likely result in an internal bloodbath that would lead to the unchecked slaughter of twenty percent of their population of twenty million. That’s four million men, women and children.

But the bloodbath will not stop there, as unlike Libya, Iran and Afghanistan, Syria will explode and not implode. It will set off a chain of events across the region and across the world that will open Pandora’s box to World War III.

Even that’s not the worst part, for Syria is merely the pyrotechnic display to divert people’s attention to a much bigger agenda – a much bigger lie. The real target here is the total destruction of the United States, not with an attack by bullets and bombs, but an attack against our economy and the U.S. dollar. That’s the real agenda, to take down the United States economically and replace the global transactional activity without the U.S. dollar as the world’s reserve currency. To achieve a new economic order led by a new world order, the U.S. dollar must be destroyed. Wealth must be transferred and the future must be bought. By so doing, our sovereignty will be lost to a new economic order, or a new world order which does not permit our Constitutional Republic to exist. We are well on the way, far down that path.

We are witnessing the machinations of psychopaths and sociopaths who have long been hidden behind the curtain, pulling the strings of the puppets to whom they have sold their souls for a seat at the globalist table. The international bankers who fund all sides of every war own the politicians and the media, and soon, they will own us. The American political system, the media and America itself has become a captured operation.

As the politicians weigh in on Syria, we are seeing that there is only one political party, the party of royalty, and we are their subjects. It is the party of the globalists, those who are pushing for the “non-existent, kooky conspiracy” of a New World Order. It’s the elephant in the room no one on network television and no one on syndicated radio dares talk about, for it is “too edgy” and “too conspiratorial” to discuss and maintain an air of legitimacy. No, they must keep the lie going, despite the slow rise of the curtain to reveal that it not only exists, but we’re seeing it play out in real time.

Just as we saw it play out in Waco, as those in power constantly asserted that “we did it for the sake of the children.”

“Have you ever danced with the devil in the pale moonlight? That is something I ask all my prey.” Those are the haunting sentences uttered by Jack Nicholson by his movie persona as the Joker in the 1989 “Batman” movie just before killing his victims.

It’s 24 years later, and we’re not in fictional Gotham. Still, we are about to become the Joker’s real-life prey as the result of the unchecked mischief and outright criminality of multiple presidential administrations and decades of congressional bodies. The question is, will enough Americans awaken to the fact that we’re being lied to before we collectively feel and smell the hot, fetid breath of the Joker on the backs of our necks as those words are whispered? Will we awaken fast enough to take steps to prepare and “get out of the way” of what’s coming?

You must look at the bigger picture, soak in a view from space, to see that we are being led in a dance choreographed perhaps by the devil himself. As always, the devil can be found in the details and amid the hypnotic melody of the orchestra under the pale moonlight. That enchanting melody is about to abruptly change to a crescendo as all elements of a perfect storm are now in place that will change our lives. It will not be the end of the world, but it will be the end of the world as we know it in terms of our lifestyles and the manner in which we are accustomed to living. A dramatic change for all of us is in the offing. We did not arrive at this moment by accident, although it is being made to appear that way. But you must remember, it was no accident.

Last summer of relative world peace?

While most Americans are on mental hiatus and fully immersed in the dog days of summer, the war raging in Syria has taken an ominous turn and is escalating by the day. Nearly two million residents of Syria have been forced to flee their homes since the war began in March 2011. Just within the last five days, upwards of 40,000 refugees fled into Iraq from Syria. Over five-thousand men, women and children fled Syria yesterday alone, and the numbers are now climbing by the hour. Yet, the Western media remains silent on this consequence of Western intervention, while our political leaders from both sides of the ideological divide continue to push their psychotic agenda under the guise of installing democracy.

One must ask exactly what is taking place in Syria, a relatively stable country until the Obamas, Clintons and McCains of the world decided to push their agenda of change, that would cause normal, middle-class people and families to leave their homes and jobs to flee into war-torn Iraq? These refugees are not “street people,” or previously displaced and homeless families. No, they are the equivalent of our middle class, and they are running, not walking from their homes, taking only what they can carry and leaving all else behind.

Other refugees are fleeing into Turkey, Jordan, and Lebanon as the anti-Assad “rebels,” who only remain viable because of the continued covert assistance from the U.S. and British-led alliance. The truth is that there was no civil war in Syria until these political marionettes on both sides of the political aisle sold their very souls to the globalist psychopaths who want to plunder and control the planet’s resources, specifically oil, natural gas and money, so they can control the future of not only the Middle East, but of the world.

If you have fallen into the trap of believing that the much celebrated Arab Spring that also included the toppling of Gaddafi’s Libya, Egypt and the “uprisings” in Syria is about the advancement of democracy and freeing the oppressed, you are the unwitting victim of the lapdog media conglomerate playing the devil’s waltz. If you believe that this is about the mere politics of Middle East Islam, you are being played for a fool.

If you believe that what you’ve witnessed over the last few years – or decades – is merely about the Middle East, that it’s limited to events “over there,” then you are not seeing the bigger picture. You are not thinking big enough, because the enormity of the lie that is being perpetuated by the powers making the political marionettes dance to the devilish tune is being hidden from you. The Arab Spring and the American activities in Syria were never about a “reset for democracy” as the globalists want you to believe. Never.

It is about a much larger reset, a realignment of power on a global level, the disassembly and reassembly of global power and massive transfers of wealth. It is a plan to control all of the world’s energy and economy by controlling all of the energy and economic chokepoints that will result in a massive power shift into the hands of the hidden puppeteers along with the internationalist bankers and their visible ilk. It’s not limited to events a half-world away, but it is part of a larger global plan. Whether you are reading this in the comfort of your living room in the heartland of the United States, Canada, or any other so-called “free” country, you will be affected by the coming events of this global reset, and you will feel the pain from these events.

As I have asserted since exposing the true nature of the attacks in Benghazi, which were coordinated at a nation-state level and conducted by proxy to stop and expose the covert operations of the U.S., British and other NATO forces for the advancement of the globalist plan to oust Assad, Syria is the fuse that will ignite World War III. The events within Syria have escalated since the hot and humid air of summer captivated and diverted the attention of most Americans, and have ramped-up exponentially over the last week.

The Syrian refugee problem will now provide the likes of political marionettes like John McCain the plausible cover to double down in Syria for “humanitarian” purposes. Cue the applause from those still captivated by the political theater consisting of television and radio talk shows that serve as entertainment for those less informed, those sitting on the sidelines of this devilish dance clinging to the hope that things will change with the next election. Can’t you just picture the Sunday morning news talk shows being populated by political puppets parroting the need to send more of our men and women into the geopolitical sand box on the playground of the military-industrial complex to provide “humanitarian aid” for those who have been displaced by their policies?

How grand the plan, when Americans can be programmed to cheer on command those who will send our family members, in the form of military might, to solve a problem they themselves caused! It is a virtual jobs program for the political-military-industrial complex and a way to line the pockets of the political puppets of the globalists. Sadly, we cheer and waste time by choosing political sides when in reality, it is the agenda of the global power elite conducting the orchestra, playing a tune to which we are all dancing.

Can’t you just hear the orchestra changing their tune from an enchanting waltz toward a crescendo while the orchestra leader grins like the Joker before killing his prey? As the leaves on the trees begin to turn, and as Americans and people all through the Western world are suddenly released from the grip of the dog days of summer, it is likely that people will suddenly awaken to a different reality.

While vacationing Americans were busily burying their toes in the Fukushima-tainted sand on west coast beaches, tainted by an event that few seem to care about despite the enormity of the continuing disaster, Syrians were burying their dead. To date, estimated deaths in Syria from the “benevolent” export of democracy range anywhere between 130,000 to 150,000. The deaths of men, women and innocent children is a eugenicist’s dream for population reduction.
While we in the West busily built castles in the sand, the machinations of the globalist plotters were busy in their castles of Camelot, preparing their orchestra and readying their next moves on this global dance floor. Many never noticed the tempo changing and the escalation of events carefully choreographed under the pale moonlight.

The tune of the orchestra is indeed changing. Directly from the percussion section, an arms depot in the Syrian port city of Latakia was bombed on July 5, 2013, in an effective raid that targeted Russian-made, Yakhont anti-ship missiles. While Israel declined to make any comment on the bombing raid, the British Sunday Times reported that “three anonymous Obama administration officials” leaked that the raid was carried out by Israel using Dolphin-class submarine-based drones.

Again from the percussion section carefully choreographed with the lights display, an immense fireball was seen over the Syrian city of Homs, where a weapons depot was destroyed on August 1st. These were Russian weapons. The blast reportedly killed about two dozen people, many civilians. This particular bombing caught the attention of many who are asserting that the blast was the result of a never-before seen and very advanced hybrid tactical nuclear weapon. Many will mock and marginalize those who dare suggest that the attack could have been nuclear in nature, asserting that the tell-tale signs of such a blast are absent, and therefore such claims are ridiculous.

Could it be that this attack was carried out by a very specialized drone with an exotic payload that we have never seen or known exists? What if that was the case? If so, have we just witnessed, but not seen, an escalation in the war between nations states?

The long dance with the devil

We are seeing the end of the beginning, not the beginning of the end. Since the onset of the first Gulf War, we have effectively been involved in Iraq for the last quarter of a century. Think about that. The Arab Spring and the plans to reshape the Middle East and ultimately, the world that also included the murderous attacks in Benghazi on the night of September 11, 2012 are part of a larger agenda, a bigger lie, and a longer dance with the devil. And the devil always collects his due.

This is the reason that under the current system, the American people will never be told the truth about Benghazi. The truth is that exposing Benghazi would expose the geopolitical plots, plans and schemes of our elected officials, acting in concert with other foreign interests, globalists and international banking interests dancing with the devil. It’s been done and continues to be done in our name, and we are being laughed at for not seeing the complete picture.

Amid the laughter, there are more lies. Such complicity extends to the August 1, 2012 “revelation” reported by CNN that there were up to 35 CIA assets in Benghazi at the time of the attack. It was presented as groundbreaking news to the truth-deprived American public. But that too is a lie. It is a product of political semantics, albeit more refined than the now infamous Clintonesque redefinition of the word “is.”

The truth is that the Hillary Clinton State Department, acting on behalf of the Obama-Jarrett-Saudi royal elite, sent Ambassador Stevens to Libya with about 100 CIA “assets” to work with the Gaddafi opposition forces. As documented in my last report, this was just one step of a larger plan to use Libya as a logistics hub for arms to topple the Syrian government. That plan was hatched years before and involved the British and the French.

The arms shipments from Libya were coordinated from the CIA compound in Benghazi concurrent with the Ambassador’s arrival. No fewer than five-(5) warehouses were used in Benghazi and Misrata to store the weapons, which were then shipped out of Libya from multiple ports, including Misrata, Benghazi and Dernah. As such, there were many more than 35 CIA “assets” in Benghazi and throughout the region. Based on inside intelligence information, the number of U.S. and foreign intelligence assets “could well reach the four figure mark.” But to the average American dancing with the devil, the words of Hillary Clinton can be heard from the dance floor… “what difference does it make?”

The original plan to topple Assad continues to move forward. Benghazi was merely a speed bump on the road to Damascus. Indeed, we are in a longer dance with the devil, but the tempo is about to change.

As written by Michael Reagan in his article titled Building on a kernel of truth, “For Russia, Syria, not Iran, is the hidden tripwire for WWIII, and the battles this time around will not favor us by focusing on our military strengths. Instead, our opponents intend to tear a page from the last chapter of this chronicle and attempt to defeat us by attacking our vulnerable economic underbelly: our oil-backed dollar.”

For those who have read this far, it is in this area where we will feel the most immediate pain in the West. Sadly, most will never see it coming, or realize that the destruction of our economy, the killing of the U.S. dollar, was not some unfortunate and unavoidable cosmic event, but the dish best served cold: the revenge of Russia’s Putin.

Coming next: The Perfect Storm

By Douglas J. Hagmann

– Satire

John Pistole, head of the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), granted this writer an exclusive interview late yesterday to discuss the Obama clown mask incident at the Missouri State Fair that caused an uproar among the Progressive left. Speaking from his summer home in 1936 Germany, Pistole stated that the Obama clown mask incident serves as a perfect example that illustrates the need for TSA expansion to other venues beyond airports, and the reason the TSA specifically named rodeos as a venue of coverage in their recent announcement.

“Rodeos, they’re a breeding ground for domestic terrorists as defined by the DHS lexicon. The ‘land mines’ left by the unconditioned bovines are a clear and present danger to positive government sentiment,” said Pistole, who noted that some rodeo members compared the olfactory assault to Washington policies. “We can’t have that now, can we,” he asked rhetorically.

In this rare and unusually candid interview, Pistole told this author that “this incident would have never happened with TSA presence on site. As the American public knows, our only concern is their safety, and this clown was clearly a threat to fair-goers,” he stated. “Had the TSA been present, no Obama masks would have ever gotten through our security checkpoints. Our agents are highly trained to find latex and certain kinds of offensive plastic products, including any that might be secreted into private crevices to circumvent security. And because these items are able to conform to one’s body, they represent an even greater threat to the public,” said Pistole.  “This is the reason that the TSA screening procedure of the public must become even invasive and intrusive,” he emphasized. “It’s a matter of public safety.”

Asking what actions the TSA has taken in light of the bull at the fair, Pistole stated, “due to the outrage being exploited over this incident, I immediately ordered the TSA in Missouri to work with the FBI, CIA, FEMA, and PETA to place the clown, the announcer and even the bull in ‘Schutzhaft,’ err, I mean, protective custody. While in protective custody, the clown and fair announcer have been ordered to undergo reeducation training at the FEMA region III Reeducation Center for Crimes against the State.”

Almost as quickly as Pistole made that statement, he asked that it be removed from the record. In a moment of refreshing candor which has become a hallmark of this administration, Mr, Pistole confessed that he had just returned from Martha’s Vineyard, where he was copiously drinking VARBs, or the popular ‘power drink’ consisting of vodka and Red Bull, with ‘Barack, Valerie, and Janet.’ Chuckling, Pistole said, “hey, that’s ironic, isn’t it. I mean vodka and Red Bull, and we’re talking about…” his voice suddenly trailed off and was briefly silenced by the sound of ice cubes striking the bottom of an empty glass.

“The TSA needs to be proactive on this matter,” stated Pistole.  “I’ve also contacted Lois Lerner at home and instructed her to launch an aggressive and comprehensive tax audit of everyone involved in the fair, from the clown and the announcer to the bulls themselves.” When reminded that Ms. Lerner is on administrative leave from her position as head of the IRS tax exemption section for allegedly targeting all anti-Progressive groups, Pistole chuckled and said, “no matter, she’s still got ‘the juice’ at the agency.”

When asked if he has made any additional contacts with other agencies, Pistole enthusiastically responded, “you betcha!” “Because this became an internet video, I immediately thought of Susan Rice, who now holds the position of National Security Adviser to Prophet Obama,” stated Pistole. (Catching his faux pas, he corrected himself and said, “I mean President Obama”). “Now she knows how to manage controversies surrounding internet videos,” Pistole blurted.

“I’ve asked Ms. Rice, the Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs, to investigate this matter as a possible act of treason, and as a criminal attack on the office of the President and the homeland.” Mr. Pistole further stated that the Patriot Act, the NDAA and other laws passed by the government or implemented by executive order give the Department of Homeland Security carte blanche to operate without judicial review. “I’ve talked to John, too, about this,” (a reference to John Brennan, CIA Director). He has a special disdain for clowns, especially those defaming the office of the president. And he’s got quite a knack with obscure internet videos I’m told,” added Pistole.

Pistole also stated that he would “toss the names of all involved into the hat for consideration on ‘terrorist Tuesdays,’” a reference to the Oval Office Star Chamber drone lottery program. Pistole added that all rodeo attendees are being urged to be treated for post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD, as the sight of a clown in the Obama mask being chased by a bull must have certainly caused mental trauma and ‘confusion.’” Asked about the reference to confusion, Pistole stated that the people are accustomed to seeing Obama and his ‘regime of royalty’ pushing the bull, not running from it.”

When asked about the disposition of the offending bull, Pistole stated that he is scheduled for medical castration under a little known pilot program of the Affordable Care Act. “It’s in the bill, didn’t you read it?” After taking another swig of his Red Bull and vodka, Pistole snickered and stated “rumor has it that the parts removed will be placed on a shelf in Valerie Jarrett’s office, right next to the ‘Presidential jewels’ Jarrett snagged in 2008.”

It’s bull.

There is one thing certain about the publicized threat to our embassies; it is not what it is presented to be. To accept the official explanation of a nebulous threat from al Qaeda as the reason for closing our embassies across the Middle East and North Africa is being dangerously naive and simplistic.

This is much more serious than what we are being told, but not for the reasons we are being given. We are seeing the consequences of a long-running “Cold War” on two major fronts of political conflict that could escalate into military engagement with proxy nations of world superpowers. The world, and life as we know it, could change in an instant should we awaken one morning to the news of bombs flying across the Middle East. That is a real possibility, as we are now in a heightened proxy war environment. We are standing in a thick forest of dry tinder, and the smallest of sparks could ignite a conflagration the likes of which we have never before seen.

How we arrived here

The farther back you can look, the farther forward you are likely to see.” This quote attributed to Winston Churchill is applicable to our current situation as it is a consequence of our policies and actions in the Middle East and north Africa.

First, it is important to understand that the so-called Arab Spring did not start on December 18, 2010 as a spontaneous revolutionary wave of demonstrations by people to rid themselves from the shackles of governmental oppression. It was planned many years ago by the globalist power brokers, with the latest incarnations perhaps sketched out in the bowels of a Saudi mansion or an estate owned by a cabal of central bankers, partly to change the geopolitical power structure of the Middle East, and partly as a “jobs program” for the military-industrial complex.

This was confirmed by a 1300-word e-mail dated June 8, 2008, sent by former British Ambassador to Libya Sir Vincent Fean to Tony Blair, just shy of a year after Blair stepped down as prime minister. The e-mail consisted of a briefing on the state of relations between Great Britain and Colonel Muammar Gaddafi in advance of a visit by Blair to see Gaddafi. His June 10, 2008 visit with Gaddafi would be one of six made by Blair after  leaving office and just three years before Gaddafi was deposed by the U.S. and UK-led interests and ultimately murdered.

Exactly what was the purpose of this meeting as well as the others made by Tony Blair on behalf of the Crown? According to the confidential information obtained by The Telegraph, it was about a prisoner transfer agreement that would be signed once Libya agreed to purchase an air defense system to the tune of about £400 million. The prisoner? Lockerbie bomber Abdelbaset al-Megrahi. Who would provide the air defense system? MBDA, a missile developer and manufacturer with operations in the UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the United States. They provide products and services for over 90 militaries worldwide. They are a world leader in missiles and missile systems, and employ about 10,000 people in France, the United Kingdom, Italy, Germany and the United States, and produced about 3,000 missiles and missile systems last year alone.

It is not merely the military-industrial jobs program alone, however. According to the confidential memo, a key objective of Great Britain was to force Libya to invest its £80  billion sovereign wealth fund through the City of London. Additionally, the Department for International Development was also eyeing another Libyan wealth fund worth £130 million “to pay for various schemes in Sierra Leone and other poverty-stricken countries.”

Concurrent with the machinations of the UK, former French minister for Foreign Affairs Roland Dumas shed additional light on plans relating to Libya and Syria in an interview with the French TV station LCP:

“I’m going to tell you something. I was in England two years before the violence in Syria on other business. I met with top British officials, who confessed to me that they were preparing something in Syria. This was in Britain not in America. Britain was organizing an invasion of rebels into Syria. They even asked me, although I was no longer minister for foreign affairs, if I would like to participate. Naturally, I refused, I said I’m French, that doesn’t interest me.” [emphasis by this author]

Dumas added:

“The only thing I know [about French Leaders] is that they have gone crazy. President Sarkozy hosted Gaddafi a few months ago at the Élysée Palace, with a red carpet and all the grandiose honors. Two months later, Sarkozy is leading a crusader war, at the head of NATO, which has become a pawn serving international politics. This has been going on for a long time.” He further stated that “I regret to see my country, to which I belong with spirit, blood, and life, leading an instrument such as NATO to come and destroy an entire people and attack its leaders.” [emphasis by this author]

Due to the role of Mr. Dumas in the French government, he could not reveal France’s role in the British plan as he would be exposing himself to prosecution for revealing state secrets, thus explaining his statement, “I’m French, that doesn’t interest me.”

It should be clear that the Arab Spring, including the NATO action taken against Gaddafi’s Libya followed by the rebels attacks against Assad, is part of a globalist agenda rather than a spontaneous uprising that has become the official historical narrative for the naive.

Benghazi exposed

It was shortly after the September 11, 2012 attack in Benghazi that I wrote in explicit detail the actual reason for that attack. Thanks to a highly placed source in the intelligence venue, readers learned the truth ten months before the corporate media finally acknowledged that the compound in Benghazi was the operations center for a large CIA weapons smuggling operation where Libya was being used as a weapons storage depot to arm the anti-Assad “rebels.”

The attack at Benghazi was described by this administration and the Clinton State Department as a spontaneous protest over an internet video, although that narrative was proven to be a lie. It was a lie they continued to stick with to hide the fact that the U.S., in conjunction with other NATO allies, were actually doing the work of Saudi Arabia. But why – who benefits? To understand the answer to that question, we must look at what Saudi Arabia is and how the Saudi royals came to power. Much like the U.S., the nation of Saudi Arabia itself is a captured operation, established by a cabal of globalists for the sake of oil. It would be helpful to understand the role Aramco and other oil interests played in the establishment of the Saudi power structure.

As the Obama regime continued forward to advance this Saudi-globalist agenda, Russia’s Putin warned the U.S. that the insanity of destabilizing Syria was not in their best interests, and certainly not in ours. When the warnings were not heeded, proxy groups for Russia, Syria and Iran, in the form of Ansar al Sharia and AQIM launched a deadly assault on the CIA operations center in Benghazi.

The continued pressure of possibly exposing the true nature of the activities in Benghazi, from the illegal arms trafficking in violation of international law to the attack itself, became a serious annoyance to the globalist planners and the Obama subjects to the Saudi royals. The assistance to the anti-Assad rebels was interrupted, albeit temporarily, by this exposure. Consequently, the plans for Syria did not go off as intended, and the timetable had to be extended. Now the anti-Assad rebels are “on the ropes,” and they are being beaten with every passing day, having lost much of the covert assistance of the CIA.

This is the reason the true account of Benghazi has yet to be told to the American people, and the reason that the official accounts are continually being pushed in place of the truth.


If you have understood how we arrived here by the short summary provided, then you will see that we are standing on the brink of not just a regional war, but a global war. Those in power do not want you to know their plans until there is nothing anyone can do to stop them.

It is vital to understand that the embassy closures signal the rapidly escalated intervention in the region by the US. It is a modern-day equivalent to the Bay of Pigs, except Barack Hussein Obama is no John F. Kennedy. Those old enough might recall that the CIA trained and inserted a group of “freedom fighters” into Cuba to oust Castro. Exactly like the rebels in Syria, those fighters could never overthrow Castro without direct U.S. military intervention and assistance. The situation is exactly the same in Syria today.

The difference is that Kennedy saw the plan for exactly what it was – a globalist plan not to defeat communism but to engage us in a larger war to the benefit of the globalists and the military-industrial complex. He refused to take the bait and in so doing, bought the world time by avoiding World War III.

Unlike Kennedy, who became his own man while in office, Obama continues the globalist agenda by supporting the CIA-trained and backed anti-Assad rebels, and is now leading us to the brink of World War III.

To say that the threat to our embassies is from some nebulous threat by al Qaeda is like saying that the group at the Bay of Pigs were just a bunch of Cuban locals. Nothing that we are being told even remotely approaches the truth, yet few seem to grasp the seriousness of what is unfolding before our very eyes.

Our involvement in the Middle East and North Africa is so large that it would be difficult not to telegraph our actions in advance. Therefore, is it possible that the unspecified al Qaeda threat is actually a cover story for some anticipated action in the region?

We are watching brinkmanship at multiple levels on a global chessboard. We have done much to destabilize whatever relative peace might have existed in the Middle East through our actions at the hands of our globalist power brokers. Russia, Iran, Syria and China are not amused, and are not looking the other way. The time clock for the anti-Assad rebels is quickly running out. This administration and every elected official who has signed on to do the work of the Saudis and their handlers have painted us into a corner from which there is little hope for escape. We cannot trust anything we are being told, and nothing we are being told even remotely approaches the truth.

We are seeing the beginnings of the transformation from a cold war to a hot war at the nation-state level. We are about to see a trigger event, after which nothing will be the same.

Based on my research as a professionally licensed investigator with nearly 30 years of experience, I wish to be on record that it is my professional opinion that investigative journalist Michael Hastings was murdered.

It was exactly one month ago today, on June 18, 2013, that Hastings, 33, was killed in a single-vehicle crash in the darkest hours of the night on a deserted Los Angeles city street. According to official reports, Mr. Hastings was the driver and sole occupant of a 2013 model CLK250 Mercedes Benz traveling south on Highland Avenue at a high rate of speed when he reportedly struck a palm tree located in the median on Highland Avenue, near the intersection of Melrose, at 4:20 a.m. Pacific Time. Also, according to official reports, Mr. Hastings’ vehicle burst into flames upon impact, incinerating the vehicle and everything inside, including his body.

Michael Hastings was a correspondent for Newsweek and extensively covered the war in Iraq. He was also a reporter for BuzzFeed and a contributing editor to Rolling Stone Magazine. It was in 2010 when he gained widespread attention for his profile of General Stanley McChrystal, then-commander of NATO’s security force in Afghanistan, in a revealing report titled “The Runaway General.” It was this report that led to the general’s resignation for his contemptuous remarks about Barack Hussein Obama and Joseph Biden.

Although Mr. Hastings became well known for that article and reportedly received at least one credible death threat as a result, I do not believe that it was his previous work that led to his tragic and untimely death. The following will explain why.

Collaborative effort revealed

For the first time, I can publicly reveal that I’ve been working with a very experienced and well-respected professional investigator based in Los Angeles and licensed by the state of California. We began our collaboration on Friday, June 21, 2013 – about 72 hours after Mr. Hastings’ death. Since then, we’ve spent about 44 collective man-hours investigating the circumstances surrounding the crash that took the life of Mr. Hastings.

As our investigation is continuing and to avoid potentially compromising our continued efforts, we agreed that revealing his identity at this time would not be in the best interests of this investigation or for the security of those involved. After a review of findings to date, however, we agreed that an interim investigative report should be published.

Although this investigation has been a collaborative effort and we agree on the findings my Los Angeles based colleague requested complete anonymity, including interim references to any individual or collective analysis of findings. Therefore, the statements made in this report will be made in the first-person singular, with this writer presenting the findings as the public point of contact.

Summary of interim investigative findings

Based on careful analysis of the findings of all research and investigation conducted to date, it is my professional belief that investigative journalist Michael Hastings was murdered. This assertion is made based on extensive analysis of the crash site (in person, on-site analysis as well as a review of the photographic documentation taken at the time of the incident that exists both in and outside of public purview), statements made by associates of Mr. Hastings, and a number of other factors relating to the official investigation by the Los Angeles Police Department, the coroner’s office, and other agencies and departments involved in the official investigation.

Associated with the above and contrary to public statements, it appears that the FBI, including but not limited to the U.S. Department of Justice might have played a role in directing parts of the official LAPD investigation. There is also an indication that the Department of Justice possibly sought and subsequently obtained certain records produced by the Los Angeles Police Department, the Los Angeles Fire Department, as well as documentation produced by the coroner’s office.

Additionally, it is my professional opinion that his death was the direct result of research being conducted by Mr. Hastings concurrent with or at the time of his death. While there have been references made to at least one credible death threat related to his 2010 report pertaining to General Stanley McChrystal, nothing was found to suggest any direct connection between that threat or subject and his death.

According to most recent investigative findings, it appears that Mr. Hastings made multiple contacts with sources directly associated with the illegal NSA domestic spying program, and either recently acquired materials and/or information about the extent of, the targets of, and the recipients of the information of domestic spying program. It is speculated that the latter information was of particular concern to as yet unidentified individuals holding positions of authority within the U.S. Department of Defense and their subcontractors, as well as certain parties within the Executive branch of the United States government. Investigation and research suggests that Mr. Hastings might have obtained, or arranged to obtain information pertaining to the role of a particular high-ranking officer within the U.S. military overseeing the domestic aspects of the NSA project.

Additionally and relevant to the circumstances surrounding his death, I believe that Michael Hastings knew, or had reason to know, that he was under both investigation and surveillance of the FBI as well as the NSA at the time of his death. According to information provided to this investigator, at least two agents reportedly representing the FBI contacted an associate of Michael Hastings for information related to his current and recent activities sometime between June 3rd – 7th, 2013.

These allegations appear to be substantiated by the following e-mail sent by Michael Hastings to two or more of his known associates immediately before his death (note: E-mail headers have been removed):

Subject: FBI Investigation, re: NSA

Hey [Name redacted] — the Feds are interviewing my “close friends and associates.” Perhaps if the authorities arrive “BuzzFeed GQ,” er HQ, may be wise to immediately request legal counsel before any conversations or interviews about our news gathering practices or related journalism issues.
Also: I’m onto a big story, and need to go off the rada (sic) for a bit.

All the best, and hope to see you all soon.


It is important to note that following the death of Mr. Hastings, Laura Eimiller, FBI spokesperson based in the Los Angeles field office, emphatically denied that Mr. Hastings was under investigation at the time of his death. It must be emphasized that this denial is in direct contradiction to Mr. Hastings’ e-mail.

In addition to the above, research and investigation into the anomalies of the vehicle crash, including but not limited to the debris field and location of the components of Mr. Hastings’ vehicle, the actions of his vehicle immediately preceding impact were reviewed. Based on this review and information obtained from sources within the area of the incident, it is possible that a previously unreferenced vehicle operated by an unknown individual might have played a contributing role in this incident. The general location of that vehicle was positioned well ahead of Mr. Hastings’ vehicle, and is believed to have been stopped near the intersection of Melrose. Investigation into this aspect of the incident is ongoing.


There has been much speculation about the cause of the vehicle fire itself, including its actual cause, its intensity, and burn patterns. While fires sometimes happen as a consequence of or secondary to collisions, analysis of both open source still photographs and video, along with a review of photos not publicly accessible are cause for concern regarding the exact cause of the fire. This matter, along with the post-autopsy disposition of Mr. Hastings’ body (cremation) will be addressed in a follow-up report.

There has also been much speculation related to the location of the vehicle’s engine and drive train following impact. This issue is presently undergoing further analysis based on related but unreleased documentation. Assessment of this aspect of the crash will be made public in a follow-up report.

The lack of skid marks from the vehicle’s tires leading to the area of impact was found to be of significance based on analysis of this scene. This will be also addressed in greater detail in the follow-up report as well.

It was during the “time critical” research project on which I have been feverishly working, trying to separate facts from myth while up against a looming deadline, that my thoughts drifted to this year’s Mother’s Day holiday in America and, naturally, my mother.

Pardon me while I drift for a moment, and humbly ask you to accompany me along my brief journey away from my research and whatever it is that you might be doing that seemingly requires your immediate attention.

Perhaps like me, you feel that there are so many pressing issues we are being forced to handle that it becomes overwhelming and most frustrating at times, and the last thing we need is yet another “holiday” thrust upon us. As I work at trying to complete a time-sensitive project, you might also be engaged in projects or duties that are equally time sensitive but for different reasons. Perhaps it’s the completion of a job so you can collect your pay or finish seemingly mundane tasks that need to be done just like every other day of your life. Perhaps you are thinking that the last thing you want or need is the inconvenience of a slickly manufactured holiday that seems like a backdoor stimulus for retailers of candy, flowers, and cards.

As the clock continues to count down the remaining minutes I have to complete my task, I find myself quietly cursing the evil genius of whoever thought up Mother’s Day and the “forced inconvenience” of it all. Today, alone in my office except for the companionship of my slumbering German Shepherd,  my cynicism toward the intent of the holiday grew even as I tried to rid myself of all distractions so I could complete my report. I unplugged the telephone, turned off my e-mail, and muted the TV monitor displaying breaking news headlines.

After a marathon session of research and writing, I am still fighting the prospect of the “forced” Mother’s Day holiday that is taking me off task and increasing my level of personal frustration. As I often do when I’m stuck in a mental paralysis, I reached for my dog’s leash, which was all it took for him to wake up and stand at the ready. What focus? I thought of my canine’s attentiveness as we exited my office and walked to “our” spot, a secluded area of trees and wildflowers beginning to bloom. No noise from traffic, radios, or incessantly ringing telephones. It was just the noise made by the rustling of the wildlife and foliage, along with the occasional grunt of a rather verbose German Shepherd who loves the outdoors. It was only then that I allowed myself to consider the thoughts of my own mother and Mother’s Day, and my life as her only son and only child.

It was at this moment that I recalled the last Mother’s Day we spent together and how I felt that it was more out of obligation to the holiday itself than to her honor. I recalled that she sensed my feeling of obligation as well, as she told me that she knew I was busy and did not need to spend the day with her. I reasoned that I didn’t need a manufactured holiday to express my love for her, that I loved her regardless of the day, the time, or the season. Taking the convenient out that she had selflessly given me, I continued to rationalize my hasty departure, for I had many important things to do.

It’s ironic how we can justify our actions and easily convince ourselves of whatever it is we want for the sake of expedience and convenience. The time that we did not spend together on that particular Mother’s Day was never recovered. After all, I had more pressing things to do. On that Mother’s Day over three decades ago, it never occurred to me that it would be her last.

When I finally thought I could spare some extra time from my self-absorbed world a few months later, I scheduled an unplanned visit with her one Saturday morning, thinking perhaps I could take her out to breakfast or perhaps talk over coffee. Using my key to enter her house, I cheerfully called her name but received no response. I knocked on her bedroom door, only to be met by an eerie silence. I opened the door and saw her still in bed, unmoved by my words or presence. As I knelt by her bed, I touched her cold hand, knowing that no words would bring her back. She passed away unexpectedly and at a young age, alone in her bed earlier that night.

As I knelt by her bedside, a flood of emotions washed over me, including a feeling of insurmountable regret that I had squandered my opportunities to spend time with her while she was alive. My tears that fell on the sheets that morning were indeed tears of regret and a very painful regret at that. Never again could I tell her how much I loved her, how thankful I was for all that she had done for me, or how deeply I really cared.

For her, at that moment, there was no tomorrow. For me, only memories that fade and erode over time, along with the inability to create more with the very person who gave me life, raised and cared for me, always putting my needs and wants above hers.

Standing amid the silence of nature with my canine companion, who I believed sensed my emotional state, he twice nudged my leg with his nose, “herding” me back toward my office. Perhaps he realized our mission was accomplished since I had identified the mental hurdle I had been fighting these last several hours.

As we walked back, I felt the need to share my very private journey with you. Maybe my words will touch those of you who need them before you are forced to endure the heart-wrenching pain of regret over the self-rationalization of inconvenience over a “manufactured” holiday.

Given our perilous time in history and the haste in which we live, it has never been more important than now to not only tell, but show those closest to you exactly how much they mean to you. You might not have another opportunity. Please don’t squander it.

This week, I had a series of very sobering discussions with my highly-placed source within the intelligence world. The information he provided hit me like a proverbial tons of bricks. It connects everything we are seeing play out across the world, from the economic problems in Europe to the U.S. DHS ammunition acquisition orders and even the “gun control” debate. If you’re like me, you’re looking for clarity, context and focus with regard to all of the events we’re constantly hearing about but seem to lack legitimate explanation. I believe this report will provide the context and clarity we are all seeking, but I must warn you that the picture is not pretty.

The economic agenda: In plain sight

Some might be surprised to learn that the fate of America’s economy has already been determined, verified and announced by the Obama White House. Yet, it has received scant attention from the corporate media. In 2011, economist Kyle Bass interviewed a senior member of the Obama administration about its planned solutions for fixing the US economy and trade deficit[ia].

Among the questions he asked was about U.S. exports and wages, but the question itself was not nearly as important as the response he received from this senior administration official. In fact, this single, seven word response clarifies everything, explains everything, and leaves little else to discuss: “We’re just going to kill the dollar.”

There it is, the entire agenda in one short sentence. It explains everything we’ve been seeing domestically and globally. That one statement makes every other question irrelevant, or otherwise answers all economic questions and explains everything. Nothing else matters. I urge you to ponder that statement and all that it implies. Doing so will provide you with the clarity to understand not only what is taking place today, but what is yet to come.

Murder & High Treason

It is important to note the specificity of the word “kill.” Stated in the active voice, it means an unambiguously intentional and deliberate act. The murder of our national currency, the United States Dollar (USD), is the ultimate agenda to be implemented under Obama. To “kill” our national currency will subvert the United States and destroy it from within. This begs a number of questions, including what type of Americans would actually have, as their objective, the destruction of our national currency? To whom do they hold their allegiance, if not to the American people whose life’s work as well as the toil of our ancestors is represented in the form of wealth held in U.S. dollars? Does this make any sense to us, as Americans? The answer of course is “no.”

By its very definition, to kill our national currency is an act of high treason by those engaged in this activity. It undermines the very sovereignty and survival of our nation, and will have a life-changing impact on every citizen in the U.S. It will also impact every nation and the people of every nation on the planet, as the USD is presently the world’s reserve currency. It is an act that should result in the filing of criminal charges against the conspirators, a trial of their peers and if convicted, a death sentence. It’s that serious.

According to my source, we are past the point of no return. We will not be able to stop what is coming, but must be wise enough to prepare and “get out of the way.” The murder plot involving the death of the dollar did not begin with Obama, but he and other conspirators have accelerated the plans, plots and schemes for its demise.

The ultimate objective

The ultimate objective is to implement an international currency in tandem with a system of global governance. The problem is that most people are not thinking large enough, nor do they understand the magnitude of the lie. They are not seeing the larger picture as their focus is diverted elsewhere. For example, they focus on various tentacles of the octopus such as the gun confiscation initiative, the DHS armament acquisitions and economic woes as independent and unrelated events. They are not.

Meanwhile, others continue to adhere to, or even perpetuate the dual party meme of governance, holding dearly to the notion that there is a practical difference between the Republican and Democrat parties. Have we not seen sufficient evidence that they are now of one party acting in concert with each other? They cannot see the collusion and backroom deals, and continue to hope that the next election will finally change the unchangeable continuity of agenda.

Most of the elected officials are onboard with the subjugation of the United States to a global system of governance. Some are actively facilitating this agenda, while others are making nominal objections on the stage of political theater while hoping to earn a seat at the global table. It’s entertainment for the globalists, distraction of the masses, and diversionary fodder for the talking heads in the media.

America has become a captured operation – captured from within. Think of the Vichy French, internal collaboration with the enemy, or softening the ground for a full takeover from within. The takeover of America has already happened, the collaborators have already been installed, and we are now on a path to complete subjugation of a larger global system of governance. If you continue to doubt this, how else would you explain the numerous examples of our dual-party governmental acquiescence of self destruction?

“Signs, signs, everywhere signs…”

Those who are pleased about the new record setting stock-market highs and various other manipulated statistics that indicate our economy is improving will be the most vocal critics of this report and who will attempt to discredit the validity of the information offered here. The more intellectually astute will look beyond the statistics offered for mass consumption not only to identify the deliberately manipulated data, but to understand what is actually driving these false hopes, figures and data. It is a magic show, and many are still captivated by the magicians’ many diversions, failing to realize that we are engaged in a global war while being simultaneously hobbled by enemy infiltrators from within.

One reason we are seeing new stock market highs is the rush to the dollar from other currencies, especially in the Eurozone. Another reason is the monetization of our debt by the Federal Reserve, despite the previous denials of Ben Bernanke and others.

Simply put, the plan by the globalists, or the central bankers and those behind them, is to create this rush to the USD like passengers from sinking ships to lifeboats. Once the lifeboats are filled to capacity, they will be sunk, and the United States Dollar will be completely worthless. As in such a scenario, many will not make it. Many will die from what is coming. The level of evil behind this plan is incomprehensible to the normal human mind.

Russia, China, Syria and Iran

As I detailed in my multiple reports about Benghazi, we are at war with Russia. After removing Qaddafi from power in Libya, the Obama-Clinton black-ops plan was immediately put into action. Benghazi was the logistics hub for arming the anti-Assad terrorists by our own State Department covert operatives who were shipping millions of tons of weapons to Syria via Turkey and other staging areas. Russia was aware of our actions, and through the attack at the CIA operations center in Benghazi by proxy forces, exposed this operation to the world while putting a stop to this operation. It seems that everyone except the Western media reported what had taken place.

The “dirty little secret” that explains why we have not been told the truth about Benghazi is quite simple. The efforts to overthrow Assad from power are continuing, except the arms and munitions shipments are now originating primarily from Croatia. Overthrowing Assad would pose a direct threat to Russia, both militarily and economically. Are we to expect Russia’s Putin to simply accept this without response? No. So what is Russia doing to subvert our efforts? He is waging war against America, striking at the weak underbelly of our economy which is the “oil backed” dollar as identified in Michael Reagan’s article, Building on a Kernel of Truth.

Sadly, the Obama regime is doing nothing to protect us from this asymmetrical war. It’s as if they are allowing it to take place.

Although it was reported in The New York Times, few have paid attention to last week’s meeting between Chinese President Xi Jinping and Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow, but it was an extremely important event in terms of the planned murder of the U.S. dollar. An alliance is being forged between Russia and China to replace the USD as the reserve currency, already severely weakened by the policies of those in power, with a gold backed currency. Russia and China are hoarding gold to levels never before seen, while the U.S. issues worthless paper and digital currency backed by… nothing, save for the “oil-backed” scenario.

While reports do exist that cite the hoarding of gold by China and Russia, they are purposely under reporting their collective reserves. Meanwhile, Americans can’t even get honest answers to the amounts of our own gold reserves held in Fort Knox or the Federal Reserve. Don’t people find this reluctance for audit and inspection a bit curious if not outright suspicious?

The battle is being waged not only by military might but by a currency war. We are “being played” through our military involvement in the Middle East, including our covert operations against Syria at the behest of Saudi Arabia. Unlike Iraq, the war in Syria will explode, turn hot, and we will be engaged in an ominous battle that will quickly expand and turn deadly. Weakened militarily through the policies of the Obama regime, coupled with an already weakened economy, the U.S. will suffer consequences unlike anyone might imagine or is willing to address. It is a recipe for disaster planned and initiated by the global elite behind the central banking system, including those in our own government. We have been set up from within, lied to, and now, we are about to see exactly what this globalist system has in store for not only the United States, but every nation of the world.

It is critical to understand that the take-down of the U.S. will be the result of an asymmetrical war that includes the weakening of our military, our economy, and a direct assault on our ability to keep the dollar as the world reserve currency and protect the free flow of oil and energy to the United States.

Within the last week, China held a surprise naval exercise in the South China Sea. Meanwhile, Russia displayed their resurgent military night in the Black Sea. These exercises were conducted as U.S. military forces are spread thinly across many areas in the world. Is anyone paying attention here?

Just as certain a collapse of the dollar is coming, so will be chaos on the streets of America caused by this plan “to kill the dollar.” The central bankers and the leaders selected to govern each country have effectively used the Hegelian Dialectic[ii] to implement their agenda. Just as stated by George H.W. Bush on September 11, 1990, their predetermined solution of a “New World Order” is being formed before our very eyes. They’ve told us what they are doing, but we have chosen not to listen or failed to understand what was being said.

The U.S. has always been the firewall against the globalists. By their persistence, infiltration of global elitists into our government, and covert subversion from within, we are being led to slaughter. A view from space, looking at the larger picture of events for which many have questions, a clearer picture emerges. There will be some who dare to resist the pillaging of our bank accounts, the erosion of our rights, and the enslavement that comes with the dismantling of America.

The dust clouds visible on the far horizon that watchmen have been reporting for decades can now be seen as an attacking army of barbarians, whose fighters are now on the ladders and cannons are breaching our empire’s outer walls. Who knows how long the inner walls of our empire will survive the next wave of their coming attack.

Perhaps Ernest Hemmingway said it best in referencing John Donne from his novel of the same name… “And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; It tolls for thee.”



By Douglas J. Hagmann

On October 3, 1789, President George Washington issued a proclamation that established “a day of public thanksgiving and prayer” and called upon all people to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God. Upon its foundation and at its core, America was established as a people eternally thankful to the bounty and blessings bestowed upon us by Almighty God.

President Washington’s proclamation also included his prayerful request that he and all government officials “perform [their] several and relative duties properly and punctually; to render our national government a blessing to all the people by constantly being a government of wise, just and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed; to protect and guide all sovereigns and nations (especially such as have shown kindness to us), and to bless them with good governments, peace, and concord; to promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the increase of science among them and us; and, generally, to grant unto all mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as He alone knows to be best.”

Our great nation was founded with reverence to the almighty God of Abraham as a Judeo-Christian nation. That reverence was never to be forgotten or abandoned.

Today, we stand more than two centuries after the proclamation of our first president. The entire moral and spiritual landscape of our country has completely changed, a change that was felt deep within the spirit of nearly half of our county’s population after the last national election. Many asked what happened, others asked how it happened, and fewer still asked why. Perhaps saddest of all, more than half of America has no clue that anything happened.

In the run-up to our last national election, many people expressed a desire to “take our country back” and described a sense of spiritual foreboding after learning of the results. The day after the election, a nationally syndicated late-night television talk show host interviewed an evening news anchor. Referring to the talk he’s heard about the spirit of recapturing our country, he mockingly remarked, “take our country back… I didn’t realize it was gone!”  The host then launched into a rant about intolerance and racism espoused by the “Bible-clinging Conservatives,” a mini-monologue of hatred that itself was a display of intolerance against the Judeo-Christian values of Americans. Even before he finished, his diatribe was met with cheers from the studio audience.

We have lost much in the 223 years since George Washington signed that Thanksgiving Day proclamation. But we did not get here overnight.

America: a captured operation

In its current state, America is a captured operation. It was captured from within, in plain sight, while Americans watched or were otherwise preoccupied with the sleight of hand of a globalist magician onstage. It has taken many years of persistent infiltration into every aspect of our country to arrive at our present state. However, the enemy of everything we once proudly and unashamedly stood for has finally gained nearly complete control of our nation. Our enemies effectively used our very freedoms against us and turned our very own rule of law into tools of conquest.

The pall felt by some people of our country on election night was born out of the realization that we have succumbed to the forces of demographics and dependency by a plan set into motion a century ago. It was the Soviet Communist revolutionary Vladimir Lenin who said, “Give me four years to teach the children, and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.” The seeds of Communism were sown throughout America during the twentieth century, and this Thanksgiving, we are reaping the bitter harvest.

Capturing the minds of our children was among the first steps to capturing our nation. Public education became a Marxist tool, an institution of Marxist indoctrination initially influenced by the much-celebrated educational reformer Thomas Dewey. He masterfully infused Marxist ideology into the minds of our most vulnerable and pliable while other like-minded individuals of prominence ran interference to deflect criticism where any existed and shouted denials to drown out any whisper of dissent. Our young, indoctrinated by a twisted syllabus of socialism, moved on to be further indoctrinated by the intellectuals of higher academia who were positioned and ready to refine their charge. The Marxist ideology became stronger and bolder with each passing year until the integrity of the moral fabric that was America split at the seams under the weight of each successive generation.

Finding success with this template of internal conquest, the infiltration continued and would be used again and again against every institution sacred to the United States. The enemy of freedom advanced inside the gates, enjoying the cover of a compliant and complicit media whose minds were already transformed a generation earlier by the curriculum of corruption.

The enemies of the very spirit of America were bred and trained from within. As the generations of the indoctrinated fanned out into every aspect of American life, they began to supplant a government of the wise and just, and transform a country from one that deifies God into one which discredits Him. Instead of acknowledging the providence of God as proclaimed by George Washington, they set out to eradicate His presence and assail His influence by deifying man and elevating planet earth to something worthy of worship.

As America proceeded through the twentieth century, environmentalism replaced evangelism as it was mindlessly embraced by “useful idiots.” It became a stepping stone to the capturing of our God-given earthly bounty, a layover toward our journey toward Marxism and full-blown Communism. Environmentalism is merely one of many tools of the communist tradecraft.

The minds made fertile throughout the twentieth century permitted the growth of other causes and movements antithetical to the reverence to the almighty God of Abraham. Karl Marx made no secret of his intent, made clear by his statement, “my object in life is to dethrone God and destroy capitalism.” Many in America took up his cause and continue to do so today.

During the last century, America has kicked God out of our classrooms, our courts, and virtually all aspects of our lives under the fallacious and eternally damning pretext of tolerance. We have traded our morality for the unacceptable acceptance of behavior antithetical to the practice of true religion and virtue. We have replaced real justice with the Marxist ideology of social justice. We have embraced tolerance of evil to the degree that tolerance itself has become evil.

America has lost her way, and bears no resemblance to visible vestiges of a moral and spiritual America reflected by the paintings of Norman Rockwell, whose works were published by the Saturday Evening Post while the agenda of evil was working overtime. Today, many look to the spirit of America captured by Rockwell and long for the way things were. Others look at the same images and say they never were. We are a nation divided.

This Thanksgiving…

As we gather at our tables this Thanksgiving, we must not only give thanks to almighty God, but recognize what has happened to our country, understand how it happened, and resolve to recapture it from the enemies who have taken it from us. We must cite President Washington’s proclamation and demand that our elected officials perform their duties properly and punctually. We must demand that our government returns to a body that respects our constitutional laws and that they are to be faithfully obeyed. We must retake our nation, not only for our earthly benefit, but for the salvation of our very souls. There is no other option.

I attended a gun show yesterday morning, just over a quarter-century after attending my first and only gun show. The first venue was located less than a mile from the current venue. Despite the passage of time, the memories of attending my first event remain surprisingly fresh in my mind. I still recall many of the people and conversations from my first event, as well as the sights, sounds and even the “feel” of that particular gun show.

Attending the event yesterday was like seeing an acquaintance I had not seen in 26 years. I’m certain you know the feeling I am attempting to describe. Perhaps it might be an old flame, someone you once worked with, or maybe even a distant relative. Over time, you retain a mental image of that person, their appearance the last time you saw them, as well as their voice and even their demeanor. You remember them the way they were the last time you saw and interacted with them. Then, you meet them again and are awestruck by their subtle and not-so-subtle changes.

In the autumn of 1986, I recall listening to gun show attendees talking with the vendors. Most of the discussions revolved around hunting in the hills of northwestern Pennsylvania, selecting the best gun for hunting deer, turkey, and other wild game. At that time, many of the attendees were talking about their previous year’s hunting exploits, comparing notes about the best hunting spots and boasting about the different ways they cooked the venison for their families.

Twenty-six years later, the conversations were as different as the atmosphere at the event. Largely absent was the talk about hunting, venison recipes, and deer stands. I observed hundreds of men (and many women) of all ages slowly walking through the aisles created by the booths of gun vendors and survival items. I mingled with as many as possible, attempting to listen to their hushed conversations. I struck up conversations with more than a dozen attendees and asked open-ended questions to assess their moods and mindsets. Like that old acquaintance not seen for over two-and-a-half decades, the changes were stark and dramatic.

“Something’s coming”

Over the course of three hours, I spoke with a total of fourteen men (attendees) and two vendors. I deliberately kept the conversations casual and the questions general. My primary questions involved asking the attendees why they were attending and if they were going to (or already had) purchased anything. I posed my questions informally, as just another person at the event.

Every person I spoke to told me they were there to buy a gun, or another gun and/or look for bargains for ammunition. With the exception of one man, every person I spoke with said they were there to look at or buy weapons and/or ammunition for self-defense. The sole exception was not really an exception at all, as he stated that he already had all he needed for self-defense and was there to purchase a more comfortable holster for concealed carry purposes.

I can best describe the mood of the people I spoke with as somber, although that might not be the best adjective to use. Pensive, perhaps, with a “somber” overlay, as if they were leaving a funeral home after paying their respects to someone they once knew. In unrelated conversations, three of the men, each appearing to be on the trailing edge of their fifth decade of life, stated that they could feel that “something’s coming,” although did not elaborate on what they felt that “something” might be.

It is here that I stress the importance that none of the people I spoke with seemed to relish the thought of meeting that “something” head-on. None were looking forward to doing battle and even exhibited a reluctance – even sadness – about having to worry about being prepared. At one point, I recall thinking that I’d seen happier people at the DMV. There was no talk of specific politics, political parties or policy, the upcoming elections, and not the least bit of discussion about race or national origins. The “something” they were feeling seemed much bigger than that, and I felt it as well. There was something very ominous in the air, and it was almost tangible.

Quiet urgency

Each of the attendees I spoke with seemed to telegraph a sense of quiet urgency. It was not what they said, but how they said things. This quiet, determined urgency was reflected in their serious, focused demeanor.

I observed five of the men purchase long guns for home defense while eight others bought additional ammunition. I lost track of the man in search of a holster, but suspect he found what he needed based on the inventory at this event. Everyone appeared to be making purchases.

From jerky to survival foods

A quarter century ago, I remembered stocking up on beef jerky from one of several vendors. Yesterday, the beef jerky booth attracted some people, but fewer than I recall. Instead, one of the larger booths was staffed by the operators of a survival store, with long-term storable foods and water purification systems stacked high and deep. Their business appeared brisk, and I watched a half-dozen people leave with large containers of emergency food.

Before leaving, I spoke with two vendors on opposite sides of the venue. Both reported brisk sales at the show as well as at their respective stores. Both said they had seen their sales of handguns, long guns, and ammunition climb rapidly over the last five years. I asked both what they thought was behind the increase in sales. One of the older men was quick with his response, stating, “well, the country has changed, and not for the better.” I then asked him when it had changed. After a brief pause of reflection, he replied, “when ‘normal’ people started waking up to the fact that we’re a country ‘out of control.’” He added that the 2001 attacks might have gotten people’s attention, but the larger threat is “something else entirely, something from within. People can feel it.”

Yesterday, I not only saw it, I felt it as well. It’s not 1986 anymore.
