Guest Column: All-American Hero Being Destroyed by the Global Superstate

Hedges: Assange Has Done More To Expose American Crimes Than Any Other News Organization, by Tyler Durden/Christopher Hedges

Source at Zerohedge here.

Julian Assange’s sanctuary in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London has been transformed into a little shop of horrors. He has been largely cut off from communicating with the outside world for the last seven months. His Ecuadorian citizenship, granted to him as an asylum seeker, is in the process of being revoked. His health is failing. He is being denied medical care. His efforts for legal redress have been crippled by the gag rules, including Ecuadorian orders that he cannot make public his conditions inside the embassy in fighting revocation of his Ecuadorian citizenship.

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison has refused to intercede on behalf of Assange, an Australian citizen, even though the new government in Ecuador, led by Lenín Moreno – who calls Assange an “inherited problem” and an impediment to better relations with Washington – is making the WikiLeaks founder’s life in the embassy unbearable. Almost daily, the embassy is imposing harsher conditions for Assange, including making him pay his medical bills, imposing arcane rules about how he must care for his cat and demanding that he perform a variety of demeaning housekeeping chores.

Guest Column: Where’s the People…

… whose job it is to warn us of these assaults upon the Republic and its people?
And why aren’t they covering the story of the century?
And why aren’t liberty-loving YOU up in arms?

From LostHorizons.com [current ephemeral URL here]

“Stated simply, this is about an effort by the judicial branch of the U.S. government to force Doreen Hendrickson, a U.S. citizen, to commit the crime of perjury.  Because Ms. Hendrickson refused the government order to perjure herself, she was sentenced to 18 months in federal prison.  She has served 14 months of her sentence.  She has today been returned to prison to serve the remaining 4 months.  The reason she is being sent back to prison is that she still refuses to commit the crime ordered by the government.”

Shredding Lies And Revealing Powerful Truths, by Pete Hendrickson

A deeper-than-ever descent into corruption by the bad guys offers a better-than-ever opportunity for the good guys.

LAST WEEK’S NEWS-LETTER OPENED with a candid presentation to the world of the outrageous corruption being practiced at very high levels of federal officialdom against my good and beautiful wife, Doreen. Yesterday, I suffered the miserable experience of driving her to a place of imprisonment, more than 500 miles from home—for the second time in three years.

I have little joy in my heart, today; in fact, I have little heart in my chest, today. I have left it in West Virginia.

BUT THERE IS THIS: On Friday, a Motion for Reconsideration was filed in the federal district court under the mantle of which the assault on Doreen has been conducted for these past 5 years. The motion is a sharp-bladed shredding of what it unmistakably-reveals to be the deeply—almost psychopathically—corrupt January 16 denial of the Motion to Vacate Doreen’s engineered conviction which was filed last October.

Brian’s Column: More Thoughts on Election 2016

It came to a head for me with the 1st Trump-Hillary debate…

T_B_Emblem_2

A Secular Trumanist Perspective

… to which I posted this commentary on Facebook, and also here as my 9/25/16 column. Essentially, a pox on everyone’s house, but you gotta go with Johnson-Weld because  Trump and Hillary will equally bad for civil liberties and peace .AND. Johnson-Weld actually have a chance to win (whereas none of the other ‘minor’ candidates does).

Then I posted this to Facebook and sent via email blind cc to my political distribution lists:

We interrupt this year’s presidential election with an important announcement. As shown in debate Donald Trump supports ‘stop and frisk’ and denying your gun rights if you are on a federal no-fly list. He also believes, as does Hillary, that we must intervene by supporting ISIS in Syria to stop ISIS, to destroy innocent lives and very likely initiate World War III. Clinton wants to bring whistleblower Ed Snowden to trial, while Trump wants (“wouldn’t mind”) to see him executed as a traitor.

Both candidates are pro Big Government and anti human liberty… and epitomes of establishment corruption and criminality. They cannot even spell the Bill of Rights, and certainly not the nonaggression principle. Either candidate, as president, will very likely destroy the final vestiges of America as a constitutional republic.

Gary Johnson and William Weld are not fiery, principled libertarians, rather successful, practical politicians with a small government agenda. They are neither corrupt nor dishonest. They will seek to expand the range of action, without government interference, for people as individuals and start to roll back the Leviathan state in several key areas. I emphatically endorse the Johnson-Weld ticket, will vote for them, and hope you will, too. Continue reading

Guest Column: Michigan’s Big Brother Helper Arlan Meekhof

Meekhof Emboldens Orwellian Surveillance State in Michigan
By Shane Trejo [Original column here in West Michigan Politics]

meekhofThe Michigan Republican establishment has been desperately trying to improve their public relations in lieu of a recent Hillaryesque streak of crushing scandals.

From the Todd and Cindy’s sexcapades to the rape of Democracy by changing the ballot rules in the middle of the process to the immense environmental calamity in Flint, the establishment is truly giving the Democrats a run for their money.

However, a chance for redemption recently emerged. A YUUUGE no-brainer was sitting the legislature and gave Republicans the perfect opportunity to save face. A binding resolution  was proposed last year by Rep. Jim Runestad (R-White Lake) that would have put the question on the ballot in November allowing voters to approve common sense language in the state Constitution that would give explicit privacy protections for electronic data and communications.

If HJRN was approved, voters could have amended the state Constitution to read as follows: Continue reading

Guest Column: CDC Doubling Down

The CDC medical police state: the right to detain anyone
by Jon Rappoport [Excerpt, full column here.]

RappoportUnderstand the implications of new CDC rules, if you want to know where the medical dictatorship is heading.

Arbitrary apprehension of citizens, detainment, forced medical treatment, vaccination.

Let me paint a scenario:

You live in a polluted city, so you have a low-level cough. On your flight to another state, the cough becomes worse because the air in the plane cabin is foul. Unknown to you, a passenger complains to a flight attendant. The passenger is a typical meddler. When you arrive at your destination, a health-agency employee is waiting at the gate for you. He apprehends you and takes you to a room, to decide whether you have a communicable disease. His first standard question—are you up to date on your vaccinations? And things go downhill from there…

It can get worse: the same story as above, except when the detained passenger is injected with a load of vaccines, he then becomes very ill, or even dies. Using plane passenger lists, health authorities search out and detain everyone who was on the flight, claiming the deceased passenger died as a result of a disease—not the vaccinations—and now all the passengers will be detained and “treated,” because they are “infected.” Continue reading

Guest Column: Stop Bill Schuette and Friends

… from stomping on medical marijuana patients and businesses
by Shane Trejo

Bill_SchuetteJoin Michigan Moms United for a ‘Stop the Raids’ protest in Lansing at the state capitol. Tuesday, March 22 at the Michigan State Capitol Building, 100 N Capitol Ave, Lansing, Michigan at 12 Noon.

Friends,

We have fallen on tough times. Michigan bureaucrats have recently started an egregious witch hunt against medical marijuana, which was approved in 2008 by the voters in overwhelming fashion.

With the Flint water poisoning scandal garnering national attention, our corrupt scumbag bureaucrats need a scapegoat. And this time the scapegoat is innocent medical patients and their caregivers. Continue reading

Book Review: The Audacity of Hope (2006)

Thoughts on Reclaiming the American Dream,
by Barack Obama (Review by Brian Wright, originally posted March 2007)

ObamaEditor’s Note: My thoughts today are I should at least rename this review as ‘The Naivete of a Dope,’ but I’m putting this old review up in the new format with a mixture of reluctance and astonishment… that I ever truly held these mostly benign opinions and judgments of perhaps one of the most vile and sadistic sociopaths the world has ever seen in such high office—and there have been several, presidents especially, as Obama’s predecessor. What particularly galls me is that I failed to see how Obama was cherry-picked by the same Imperial Globalist Junta as the Dubya crowd. [In fact, I actually believed Obama lay on the outside of Intelligence operations and the New World Order machinery.]

Obama_KillsChildren

The ‘I Have a Drone’ President

On the positive side, what the book review shows is that reasonably intelligent people seeking the truth can correct and amend initial, radical, and deep misunderstandings QUICKLY. Roughly nine years after writing the original review—which is nothing in intellectual history years—I’ve come to a fundamentally new grasp of the nature of world politics. I assure you my personality has not shifted, nor my desire and vision for liberty. So without further ado, here’s the original. Comments in dark red. Continue reading
