It is said that “war is the health of the state.” Because government’s goal is always to grow in size, influence and power there is a need for constant war to justify its continuous and infectous propagation.
A Cold War that has been going on for years, became clearly visible to me yesterday (while describing the events in Nevada to a few friends that were new to the developments there). The Cold War I am referring to is not the one with Putin’s Russia over issues such as Syria or Crimea or between the US government and all the brown skinned terrorists hiding under our beds hating us for our freedom. It is between the US Government and the American people who seek true freedom, sovereignty along with a constitutional and restrained government.
The US government has been stockpiling ammo for years. The Military Industrial Complex that Eisenhower warned us about is one of the most powerful groups in the US. The alternate media has been calling them on it but the captured mainstream media rarely mention it. These ammo purchases would not seem ludicrous at face value because practice ammo is constantly needed for training and qualification but the fact that they are buying hollow points and the quantity is in the billions (HERE) is what is problematic. Either they are wasting money by shooting paper with HP’s, they are driving the price of ammo up to keep it out of our hands, or they don’t intend to be shooting paper.
The truth is likely (d) all of the above; the paper targets purchased by some departments that depict children, elderly and even pregnant mothers as the “threats” tell us a lot. No More Hesitation targets pictured below (story HERE).
Small arms is only the tip of the iceberg. It his becoming commonplace for towns of only a few thousand residents to have thier police department receive a free MRAP from the Federal Government. These rolling mine resistant armored cars will be used to pacify the disorderly conduct of an uppity citizenry. Seeing something like this just makes you feel safe, doesn’t it?
On the other side, Obama can officially depict himself as firearms salesman of the decade (HERE).
Since he was elected, nearly every year there has been a new record for the number of background checks and firearms purchases only to be exceeded and a new record set the following year. Even when prices skyrocketed after the Aurora Theater Shooting and Sandy Hook Tragedy, sales of AR-15′s, P-Mags, 5.56, AK-47′s, 7.62 have been very strong. People who aren’t even fans of firearms are recognizing the need for them. It is common for people I know aren’t gun enthusiasts asking me for recommendations. People are stockpiling ammo and learning to reload their own. The BLM fiasco at the Bundy Ranch was a stark reminder that there are militia in this country that are very serious about preparation and their convictions.
With the various despicable alphabet agencies like the CIA, DHS and NSA we all knew the government was spying on us and violating the law/rules set forth by the 4th ammendment. Illegal searches, warrantless home entries, porno body scanners have all become acceptable because of the War on Terror and the War on (some)Drugs. Our emails are scanned, our phone conversations and texts are catalogued and stored. But we are told not to worry because it is just the metadata and its for our own good. The scale and structure was not fully understood by many non-red-pill taking Americans until Edward Snowden courageously released this information in detail. There are many sheeple who are opening their eyes a little bit more each day.
Edward Snowden work for the beast only to realize the US government isn’t fighting evil empires, they are the evil empire. Then there are those like Aaron Schwartz who help provide the spread of free information. Former servicemen like Bradley Manning who take the information our owners have collected and hand it over to someone like Assange who will see to it that it is available for the world to see. The life of a spy is often short and painful; the inevitable end willl probably include jail, torture and even execution after years of running, hiding and looking over ones shoulder.
My understanding is that espionage means giving secret or classified information to the enemy. Since Snowden shared information with the American people, his indictment for espionage could reveal (or confirm) that the US Government views you and me as the enemy.
People are having a rough go at it, inflation adjusted income for the average person is the lowest in decades and the credit orgy isn’t as appealing to many as it was prior to 2007. The issue isn’t that the US government isn’t doing enough to help, it’s that it is doing so much to hinder the people who want to be free. Websites like The Burning Platform and Eric Peter’s Autos are bullied out of existence by the Google arm of the Feds for telling the truth and opening the minds of readers. They literally create regulations and rules to simply act as cement loafers so that those treading water expend so much energy just trying to stay afloat. People are so exhausted from this that they don’t have time to read and think critically; this is not an accident.
Soon the most profitable US business will be the company that mass produces Closed and Out Of Business signs.
Unlike during the first half of the 20th century, new automotive companies sprouting up are a rarity; except when they tout the “green energy/electric car” line that includes subsidies from big government. Decades ago there was innovation because smart people of average means figured out better ways to do things and went at it on their own to create wealth. Now those same people need billions of dollars (or the connections with politicians) just to get started. Legitimate loans are often hard to acquire for these people. The emissions and safety standards just to enter the market are motivation killers. The road blocks are literally so tall these people end up working for the monster corporations like GM who knowlingly continue to produce crappy products that cause deaths.
A perfect example of another affected industry is Healthcare. Obama-care is like a cluster timebomb going off every few seconds until the foreseeable future. Dictating the rules that affect your life by a group sackless bureaucrats.
This lack of innovation and over-regulation occurs in nearly all markets that actually produce a good. The agriculture industry is being destroyed while corporations like Monsanto grow exponentially. Somehow the merger between Time Warner and Comcast will go through and the service provided by this cable monster will actually get worse (one should just cancel their cable anyway) while the price increases. We should not wonder why jobs creating and producing useful products have been steadily run out of America while the few remaining products are produced by the largest possible corporations with tendrils in the government.
The recent Clive Bundy vs BLM incident is a perfect example of a border dispute. Private property rights, rule of law and respect of contracts are necessary for legitimate borders and peace. None of those things exist anymore. The BLM claims the land around Bundy’s ranch and demands grazing fees while not maintaining the land themselves and regulating the number of cattle he is allowed to have down to unprofitable quantities. But it is totally legal because a Federal Court ruled that the Federal Government is the rightful owner of the land; sounds legit to me (sic). Their goal is to regulate him out of business so they can either confiscate or outright buy it up from him just as they have done to the other 50 ranchers that are no longer in that area. This is literally a recreation of Ayn Rand’s Atlast Shrugged.
Bundy didn’t play ball and wouldn’t pay the fees so the feds stole his cattle and tried to fence it over in Utah. They ended up SOL when Utah refused to deal with stolen property. The people literally marched on the Feds position under threat of murder until the BLM backed down.
I don’t want to romanticize and hollywood-up this incident but it reminded me of the crowd of protestors marching past the blockades in V for Vendetta.
All taxes are theft but school/property taxes are one of the more despicable taxes, they essentially turn every (supposed) homeowner/landowner into a renter. Regardless of any good they might do they are evil for the sheer fact that they have destroyed the idea of true property rights and ownership. Even if you have paid off your mortgage you are not a land owner, try not paying your school/property taxes for a while; you will find out who really owns the land.
84% of Nevada is owned by the Federal Government. How does Mordor on the Potomac own more of Nevada that Nevadans and the state of Nevada combined? With a $17 trillion deficit, I think it is prudent for them to start selling off some of their assets.
Aggression Masked As Diplomacy:
Negotiations are a constant in our world. If terms are negotiated between mindful adults/parties then there can be peace but often dealings and negotiations with the US government involve coercion and the threat of violence. The use of aggressive violence and threat of its use has no place in a free society. The fact that it is part of the normal standard operating procedure of the US should not be a surprise because we are far from being a free society.
People are getting fed up with these tactics. Whether it is people refusing to stand down to police after a shooting, filming the police actions even when threatened with arrest, vocalizing their disapproval at town hall meetings or simply a rancher who has essentially says to the feds ”I don’t recognise your authority regarding this, now fuck off!”
Propaganda/Ad Hominem Attacks:
One of the first steps in winning any war is the dehumanization of the enemy. Once that is successful those who sign the legislation and pull the triggers won’t see themselves as thieves and murderers because their victims are sub-human. These people are the enemy of freedom and the enemy of America.
Libertarians, Tea Party, 2nd Ammendment supporters, etc… are constantly labeled as extremists and one step away from being re-categorized as terrorists.
That picture says it all, hundreds of government agents were up against hundreds of protestors backed by armed militia men not afraid to exercise their 2nd ammendment and point their rifles downrange at a group that might decide to aggressively stand against freedom.
The writing is on the wall, war could break out between the US and America, preparations have been made and the tension is there for it to go from cold to a hot war at a moments notice. This is what characterizes a Cold War to me.
Many of you know about the issue going on in Nevada between the Bundy Cattle Ranch and the BLM.
Some of the basics can be found HERE.
Read below, it seems like things might start to get worse.
‘Expect To See A Band Of Soldiers’: Militia Members Arrive At Nevada Ranch
LAS VEGAS (CBS Las Vegas/AP) — Militia groups are rallying behind a rancher whose cattle are being seized by the federal government.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that two militia members from Montana and one from Utah have arrived at Cliven Bundy’s ranch.
“We need to be the barrier between the oppressed and the tyrants,” Ryan Payne of the West Mountain Rangers told the Review-Journal. “Expect to see a band of soldiers.”
Payne said that militias from New Hampshire, Texas and Florida are likely to join and stand with Bundy and stay at his ranch.
“They all tell me they are in the process of mobilizing as we speak,” Payne told the Review-Journal, adding that hundreds of militia members are expected.
The Review-Journal also reports that Bundy’s son, Ammon Bundy, was shot with a stun gun by law enforcement officers Wednesday and that the rancher’s sister, Margaret Houston, was pushed to the ground.
“I pulled the tasers out of him,” Cheryl Teerlink told the Review-Journal.
Lawmakers are adding their voices into the fray, criticizing the federal cattle roundup fought by Cliven Bundy who claims longstanding grazing rights on remote public rangeland about 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas.
Sen. Dean Heller of Nevada said he told new U.S. Bureau of Land Management chief Neil Kornze in Washington, D.C., that law-abiding Nevadans shouldn’t be penalized by an “overreaching” agency.
Republican Gov. Brian Sandoval pointed earlier to what he called “an atmosphere of intimidation,” resulting from the roundup and said he believed constitutional rights were being trampled.
Heller said he heard from local officials, residents and the Nevada Cattlemen’s Association and remained “extremely concerned about the size of this closure and disruptions with access to roads, water and electrical infrastructure.”
The federal government has shut down a scenic but windswept area about half the size of the state of Delaware to round up about 900 cattle it says are trespassing.
BLM and National Park Service officials didn’t immediately respond Wednesday to criticisms of the roundup that started Saturday and prompted the closure of the 1,200-square-mile area through May 12.
It’s seen by some as the latest battle over state and federal land rights in a state with deep roots in those disputes, including the Sagebrush Rebellion of the 1970s and ’80s. Nevada, where various federal agencies manage or control more than 80 percent of the land, is among several Western states where ranchers have challenged federal land ownership.
The current showdown pits Bundy’s claims of ancestral rights to graze his cows on open range against federal claims that the cattle are trespassing on arid and fragile habitat of the endangered desert tortoise. Bundy has said he owns about 500 branded cattle on the range and claims the other 400 targeted for roundup are his, too.
BLM and Park Service officials see threats in Bundy’s promise to “do whatever it takes” to protect his property and in his characterization that the dispute constitutes a “range war.”
U.S. Rep. Steven Horsford, D-Las Vegas, noted that BLM officials were enforcing federal court orders that Bundy remove his animals. The legal battle has been waged for decades.
Kornze, the new BLM chief, is familiar with the area. He’s a natural resource manager who grew up in Elko, Nev., and served previously as a senior adviser to Senate Democratic Majority Leader Harry Reid.
Reid aide Kristen Orthman said her boss “hopes the trespassing cattle are rounded up safely so the issue can be resolved.”
Sandoval, a former state attorney general and federal district court judge, weighed in late Tuesday after several days of media coverage about blocked roads and armed federal agents fanning out around Bundy’s ranch while contractors using helicopters and vehicles herd cows into portable pens in rugged and remote areas.
“No cow justifies the atmosphere of intimidation which currently exists nor the limitation of constitutional rights that are sacred to all Nevadans,” the governor said in a statement.
Sandoval said he was most offended that armed federal officials have tried to corral people protesting the roundup into a fenced-in “First Amendment area” south of the resort city of Mesquite.
The site “tramples upon Nevadans’ fundamental rights under the U.S. Constitution” and should be dismantled, Sandoval said.
BLM spokeswoman Kirsten Cannon and Park Service spokeswoman Christie Vanover have told reporters during daily conference calls that free-speech areas were established so agents could ensure the safety of contractors, protesters, the rancher and his supporters.
The dispute between Bundy and the federal government dates to 1993, when land managers cited concern for the federally protected tortoise and capped his herd at 150 animals on a 250-square-mile rangeland allotment. Officials later revoked Bundy’s grazing rights completely.
Cannon said Bundy racked up more than $1.1 million in unpaid grazing fees over the years while disregarding several court orders to remove his animals.
Bundy estimates the unpaid fees total about $300,000. He notes that his Mormon family’s 19th century melon farm and ranch operation in surrounding areas predates creation of the BLM in 1946.
Since the cattle roundup began Saturday, there has been one arrest.
Bundy’s son, Dave Bundy, 37, was taken into custody Sunday as he watched the roundup from State Route 170. He was released Monday with bruises on his face and a citation accusing him of refusing to disperse and resisting arrest.
A court date has not been set.
His mother, Carol Bundy, alleged that her son was roughed up by BLM police.
Meanwhile, federal officials say 277 cows have been collected. Cannon said state veterinarian and brand identification officials will determine what becomes of the impounded cattle.

I had a hard time reading this and not replacing Yale with US Govt whenever it came up. I can literally see them meddling in our lives to the point where they are actively depriving some people to eat while force-feeding others so we can all have an acceptable BMI. It is decreed that you must gain weight, now pack on “X” lbs until you are in an acceptable range.
And those who won’t concentrate and comply with what they are being told to do will be sent to concentration camps, for their own good of course.
Remember, the terrorists hate us because of our freedom…
Rago notes it’s clear the university means well. “But eating disorders are more about your behaviors and your thoughts than your weight,” she explains.
Moo-shell is an unbelivable tw-unt, it is easy to tell when she has entered a room because one can “smell the sulfur coming off her cloven hooves.” She has done the impossible, her initiatives have gotten school lunches to look even more like dogshit than they did when I went to school. At least the school’s policies are also making it difficult for kids to bring your own lunch. I thought she would be Pro-Choice. The reasoning behind not allowing lunches from home, to ensure the eating of healthy food. HAHAHA, take a look at the meals these kids are eating and tell me with a straight face they are healthy.
Ok, now pick yourself up off the floor.
When the government school system isn’t poisoning the minds of our children, destroying their free will & creativity and teaching (sic) them via the lunacy that is Common Core, they are literally poisoning their bodies with this shit they call “food.”
Bottom line: Sending kids to public/government school is child abuse.

Michelle Obama’s School Lunches In Pictures: “Is That Photo Taken From Death Row?”
April 8th, 2014
She’s launched a wide array of initiatives targeting Americans receiving government nutritional benefits, as well as school lunch programs across the nation. Nowhere have the First Lady’s efforts been more visible than in the cafeteria’s of America’s schools.
Within days of Obama’s new USDA regulations taking hold parents and schoolchildren launched complaints surrounding the rationing of meals, a move that left kids hungry and school districts frustrated with all of the additional paperwork and program expenses. The USDA subsequently upped the rations to assuage frustration.
But according to America’s kids Michelle Obama has been “out to lunch” when it comes to satisfying hunger. It’s so bad, in fact, that black markets for food have popped up in schools and kids are taking to their social media pages to share their outrage.
Do you want to see what Michelle Obama considers eating right? Check out these pictures and comments – sourced directly from government run cafeterias around the country.
As you see what passes for health food these days keep in mind that school’s are increasingly restricting children from bringing their own lunches from home, often citing nutritional requirements as the reason.
An appetizing ham and cheese tortilla wrap:
Chili cheese dog with a side of veggies:
Can I get another scoop of brown with a sprinkle of yellow? Oh, and don’t forget my biscuit!
Students weigh in:
When mom joined her daughter for lunch, here’s the wonderful meal prepared by the caring cafeteria staff:
On the flip side, here is what Michelle Obama’s children enjoy for lunch at the Sidwell Friends school attended by her daughters Sasha and Malia. In this particular case the school was paying a tribute to Pearl Harbor Day and the kids feasted on Asian Mushroom Soup, Oriental Noodle Salad, Teriyaki Marinated Chicken Strips, Garlic Roasted Edamame, Vegetable Fried Rice and Fortune Cookies for dessert:
And of course, how can we talk about healthy eating, school lunches, and Michelle Obama without mentioning the White House organic vegetable garden? The First Lady shows of her green thumb in the picture below. It turns out, however, that because of her busy schedule she didn’t actually grow any of her food. The White House gardeners did, and they did a heck of a job.
Straight from America’s organic gardens to school lunch tables coast to coast.
