It's Time for the Aware to Take Action

Brandon Turbeville
December 21, 2012
For anyone who is even passively aware of current events and the condition of humanity across the globe, it is abundantly clear that both the nation and the world as a whole are moving further and further into a state of oppression and total lockdown.

From the traditional macro-events which are taking place at the international and global levels to the micro-events (or seemingly micro) that are taking place at the national, state, and local arenas, the opportunity for optimism in the outcome of the decisions made seems to be few and far between.

Indeed, in order to find areas where battles are won by those on the ground fighting against an encroaching police state, further pollution of the environment, war, proliferation of GMOs, or related causes, one must search on average one hundred times harder than would otherwise be necessary to locate the news of another defeat. The headlines from both the mainstream and alternative media outlets suggest only greater accomplishments of the system (New World Order/Anglo-American Establishment/Shadow World Government, etc.) with each passing day.

Obviously, the mainstream media is intent and focused on the further brainwashing and propagandizing of the world’s people, blatantly promoting their enslavement for those who are aware of the methods used, further implanting the accepted opinions of the future in the minds of the masses who are not. The constant replay of a laundry list of possible catastrophes - those that have occurred and those that might occur - serve to wrap the human mind in a cloak of continual panic and subconscious desire to protect oneself by any means necessary.
That method of protection, of course, is readily served up by the mainstream media under the guise of sacrificing freedom for security, which the victims of the propaganda continue to fall for on an ever-increasing scale. Whether the initial incident is 9/11, mass shootings, flu outbreaks,[1] or financial calamity, the unchanging trend is FEAR and the unchanging solution is the sacrifice of basic human rights under the guise that government, its agents or agencies, will act as the protectors.

U.S. Continues Nuclear Tests; Draws Condemnation From Iran ... and Bombed Japanese Cities

With little fanfare amongst the American corporate media, the United States has now conducted yet another nuclear test in the deserts of Nevada. The move was condemned by both Iran and two Japanese mayors, who stated that not only was the American test emblematic of the double standard held by America and the international community, but that it also endangered the progression to a nuclear-free world.

As reported by RT, it was announced by the National Nuclear Security Administration on Friday, Dec. 7 that the Nevada National Security Site “had successfully detonated plutonium in a deep shaft on Wednesday (Dec. 5) to test the safety and effectiveness of US nuclear weapons.”

The Pollux subcritical experiment involved “a tiny sample” of plutonium bomb material and was carried out by scientists at the Los Alamos, New Mexico national laboratory and the Sandia National Laboratories.

Subcritical nuclear experiments have been conducted inside the United States since 1997 under the justification of helping “scientists understand how plutonium ages in the stockpile.” The December 5 experiment, however, marks the twenty-seventh “subcritical experiment” conducted since 1992, when full-scale nuclear weapons tests were supposedly stopped.

It has been the fourth such test under the administration of Barack Obama. The term “subcritical,” it should be pointed out, refers to using “chemical explosives to blow up bits of nuclear materials designed to stop just short of erupting into a nuclear chain reaction, also known as criticality.”

In response to the test, two Japanese Mayors, Kazumi Matsui of Hiroshima and Tomihisa Taue of Nagasaki, separately sent letters of protest to President Barack Obama.

FDA Expands Irradiation of Food Supply; Harmonizing with Codex Alimentarius

Brandon Turbeville
December 9, 2012
Demonstrating the lack of concern held by regulatory agencies for public safety or public opinion as well as the increasing attempts to become compliant with Codex Alimentarius regulations, the FDA has recently expanded the amount of ionized radiation that can be used to treat unrefrigerated raw meat.

As reported by Food Safety News, the two new policies decided upon by the FDA were issued in response to two petitions filed in 1999 by the Food Safety and Inspection Service of the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

While the previous policy was that only refrigerated or frozen meats could be irradiated, the new rule allows for the irradiation of unrefrigerated raw meat. The second rule change allows for increasing the dose of ionizing radiation in poultry from 3.0 kGY to 4.5 kGy.

Although a period for public comment is always set aside for regulatory agency decisions regarding potential changes to policy, the FDA promptly ignored the many comments it received from individuals all over the country as well as consumer advocacy groups which requested the denial of the two FSIS petitions.

The response from the FDA was that all of these comments, made by individuals and by groups such as Public Citizen and the Center for Food Safety, “were of a general nature” and “did not contain any substantive information that could be used in a safety evaluation of irradiated poultry.” This statement was made regarding both the poultry irradiation rule and the passage of a new meat temperature rule.

Comprehensive Scientific Study Calculates the Cost of Geoengineering

Brandon Turbeville

December 4, 2012

As more and more evidence is produced on what is virtually a weekly basis regarding chemtrails, geo-engineering, and stratospheric modification, it is now the case that individuals who deny the existence of these programs may be classified as delusional, even as they have repeatedly attached this label to those who have acknowledged the existence of such programs in the past. Although the label of “conspiracy theorist” has been applied to people who have spoken out about geo-engineering for many years, the fact is that those who are incapable of acknowledging basic reality are only eroding their own credibility as time moves forward.

For many, the ability to hold two contradictory thoughts (i.e. “chemtrails are conspiracy theories” while “geo-engineering projects are needed to combat global warming”) is a major impediment to any real acceptance of the health and environmental consequences of barium oxide, cadmium, sulfur dioxide, and aluminum oxide being sprayed over their heads on a daily basis.

Likewise, the thought that governments, corporations, banks, and academia might be working in secret toward nefarious ends is beyond comprehension for a large portion of the general public.

However, as more and more mainstream media outlets and “respected” scientific organizations begin to openly admit the existence of both the technologies and the programs, the ability to deny it is a gift more closely associated with a mental disorder than with ignorance.

Thus, the recent release of a study published in the journal Environmental Research Letters entitled, “Cost analysis of stratospheric albedo modification delivery systems,” should only serve to weaken the ridiculous claims that those individuals capable of looking above their heads and researching government programs are conspiracy nuts.

The study, conducted jointly between three researchers affiliated with three different institutions – Justin McClellan of Aurora Flight Science Corporation, David W. Keith of the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences and Kennedy School at Harvard University, and Jay Apt of the Tepper School of Business and Department of Engineering and Public Policy of the Carnegie Mellon University – centered around the evaluation of the projected cost analysis of various systems capable of “delivering 1-5 million metric tonnes (Mt) of albedo modification material to altitudes of 18-30 km.”

Food Stamp Biometric I.D. Program Introduced Under Guise of Fraud Reduction

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post
November 29, 2012

At the beginning of 2012, I wrote an article entitled “Cashless Society: India Implements First Biometric ID Program for all of its 1.2 Billion Residents,” where I detailed the Indian UID program being implemented for purposes of “cutting down on corruption” in the distribution of social welfare benefits.

At the time, I wrote in the introduction to the article, “However, current events in India should serve not just as a warning, but also as a foreshadowing of the events to come in the Western world, specifically the United States.” But, while this statement was clearly not an outlandish claim, the fact is that the Indian UID is very similar to programs which are in operation all over the country and that have been operating since at least late 1998.

In some areas like Los Angeles, New York, Connecticut, Illinois, Massachusetts, Texas, Arizona, New Jersey, and California, the slow emergence of the UID-style program for food stamp recipients is clearly evident. Many other areas of the country are considering the implementation of the program as well such as Florida, Maryland, Michigan, South Carolina, Mississippi, and Pennsylvania.

Like the Indian UID program, the roll-out of the American system will require the fingerprinting of individuals receiving food stamps under the guise of reducing fraud. Yet, like the early status of the Japanese version of the UID, the Juki-Net, the emerging American system is currently being implemented on a state-wide or local basis (county or city), with no administration by the US Federal government.

However, that is not to say that the Feds have no interest in the program. Indeed, as reported on the USDA’s own website, in May-June 1998, the USDA actually conducted interviews with representatives of human service agencies in most of these states to determine their feasibility in terms of reducing food stamp fraud.

Surveillance Grid Moves Ahead With VoIP Spy Technology

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post
November 24, 2012

Once upon a time, privacy was not a word that was foreign to the English language. In that time long ago, police and governments would often have to manufacture an incident (like 9/11) in order to successfully push for more legal powers to monitor private conversations or access data without a warrant.

However, in 2012, the premise of the invasion of privacy is no longer necessary. Now, the debate itself is a foregone conclusion that agencies will be granted greater power to surveil the populace. The only question taken into consideration is what might be the best method that these organizations can utilize in order to take advantage of these coming powers.

Such is now the case with various Internet chat services like Skype and other companies or products utilizing Voice over IP technology, which law enforcement complains makes the task of eavesdropping on “suspects’” communications much more difficult.

As explained by MassPrivateI in the article, “Police want to covertly eavesdrop (spy) on voice over IP chats,” Voice over IP software allows for individuals to “make phone calls over the Internet by converting analog audio signals into digital data packets.”

The article continues by stating,

Because of the way the packets are sent over the Web, sometimes by a 'peer-to-peer' connection, it can be complex and costly for law enforcement agencies to listen in on them. This has previously led some countries, like Ethiopia and Oman, to block VoIP services on 'security' grounds. In the United States and Europe, too, VoIP has given authorities a headache. The FBI calls it the going dark problem' and is pushing for new powers to force Internet chat providers to build in secret backdoors to wiretap suspected criminals’ online communications.

In other words, law enforcement is irate that a technology exists that does not allow them to easily and illegally monitor the private conversations of American citizens. This, of course, ignores the fact that government technology is light years ahead of anything available to the average person. Thus, to believe that surveillance technology for VoIP software does not exist already is clearly naive.

Biometric Gunshot Surveillance Net Will I.D. Shooters in Real-Time Across America

Brandon Turbeville
November 23, 2012

With the recent announcement regarding San Diego police who are now using facial recognition technology to build and maintain a massive biometric database of their citizens, as well as the nationwide roll-out of department store dummies equipped with cameras and microphones used to recognize, record, and monitor shoppers, it appears that the biometric databasing of the American people has now been turned to overdrive.

However, treasonous law enforcement and Big Brother department store dummies are not the only methods by which the American people are being surveilled by recently introduced technology.

Now, programs have been developed that are able to detect gun shots from miles away in conjunction with high-resolution cameras and facial recognition software that allows for not only the location of the shots but the direct biometric identification of the shooter.

Essentially, the new programs being prepared for implementation all over the country (and the world), are designed to detect gun shots from a remote location via acoustic sensors. When the gunshots are detected and located through a quick process of triangulation, a high-resolution camera is then used to photograph the shooter’s face, which is then processed through a biometric database to determine the person’s identity. If the shooter is not yet enrolled in the police state database, the new technology can actually create a new record using the photograph.
In an excellent report entitled, “FaceFirst’s biometric software can use a database of photos to identify you in public,” which details the emerging facial recognition technologies, MassPrivateI, states, “The companies say this is the world’s first such detector to instantly ID a shooter, and aim to make it available to law enforcement agencies and private physical security firms.”

Gunshot Detection and Biometrics Merge to Form Real-Time Shooter I.D.

November 22, 2012

Amidst the recent revelations regarding the use of facial recognition software by police in San Diego as well as its use by department stores via mannequins equipped with cameras and microphones, it appears that yet another facial recognition technology is being rolled out. This new introduction of yet another method by which to develop and utilize a massive database of American biometrics, like all the other programs, represents the further shredding of privacy rights as well as the fourth amendment.

The new program being referred to is the product of the partnership between two military industrial complex firms – Safety Dynamics and Airborne Biometrics Group (ABI). Both of these firms are thinly veiled creatures of the stampeding DARPA-style surveillance state and shadow government infrastructure now firmly in place the world over.

Essentially, the new programs being prepared for implementation all over the country are designed to detect gun shots from a remote location via acoustic sensors. When the gunshots are detected and located through a quick process of triangulation, a high-resolution camera is then used to photograph the shooter’s face, which is then processed through a biometric database to determine the person’s identity. If the shooter is not yet enrolled in the police state database, the new technology can actually create a new record using the photograph.

As Homeland Security Newswire writes,

Individuals who fire weapons with criminal intent will now have to think twice now that Safety Dynamics Inc. and FaceFirst have decided to join forces.

Working together, Safety Dynamics will combine its gunshot detection technology with FaceFirst’s facial recognition capabilities to automatically identify a shooter’s face in real-time.

Xbox Kinect Cameras and Smart TVs - Who is Watching Who?

Brandon Turbeville
November 20, 2012
Back in April, I wrote an article entitled, “CIA Home Invasion: Smart TVs and the ‘Internet of Things,’” where I detailed the roll-out of the then-new Samsung LED HD Smart Tvs and the inherent dangers that lay therein.

image source
At the time, the dangers related to the televisions were the fact that these new TV sets came fitted with their own built-in cameras and microphones, thus making the potential for remote spying intensely more acute. Coupled with a virtually simultaneous announcement by then-CIA Director David Petraeus that, due to the increase in the amount of household gadgets which are capable of being controlled by apps, the CIA would soon be able to read these devices via the Internet or radio waves outside of the home, the release of television sets with built-in cameras and microphones, some of which are attached to the Samsung cloud, should have been a cause for much alarm.

Unfortunately, the new Big Brother TVs were not met with serious skepticism nor did they even draw significant ire of privacy proponents. After all, what would the CIA or a corporation gain by watching you in your living room? Why would the government want to see you sinking lower into the couch? They have much more important things to do, right?

Aside from the obvious implications regarding the destruction of basic privacy or even the open desire held by governments and intelligence agencies to actually build a Total Information Awareness Network, one would find it difficult to find a manner in which cameras and microphones attached to one’s television would make the viewing experience any better.

The Prince and the Pedophile: Charles' Connections to Pedophilia Networks

Brandon Turbeville
November 16, 2012

Fresh on the heels of the fallout from revelations regarding former BBC entertainer Jimmy Savile and his unbelievably sickening and innumerable instances of child molestation as well as the “look the other way” approach taken by the BBC, more and more questions are now emerging in regards to the connection between Savile and British Royalty, most notably Prince Charles.

At least, more questions should be emerging.

Unfortunately, however, the British mainstream media is deeming Prince Charles and the rest of his ilk in positions of power and perceived genetic royalty as if they are beyond reproach. This approach is typical and to be expected, yet it is also highly ironic considering the fact that such is the same position the mainstream media took with the allegations against Jimmy Savile for so many years.

As a result of the Savile affair, mainstream outlets, particularly the BBC, now have a lot of egg on their faces in the areas of credibility and respect.In short, any connections placing Prince Charles in an uncompromising position regarding his connections with Savile or his potential for sharing a penchant for unnatural relationships with children is being completely ignored if not officially covered up.

Bilderberg Group Quietly Meets in Italy

November 15, 2012

While the attention of most Americans was focused on whatever trivia dished out from the mainstream media such as the current hot celebrity or the David Petraeus incident, it appears that the Bilderberg Group has arranged what some have described as an impromptu meeting in Rome, Italy.

Yet, although much of the European press is dark on the issue, which is unfortunately characteristic of the mainstream media in any nation, some Italian newspapers are reporting the information regarding the meeting.

According to 21stCenturyWire, the agenda apparently centered around the fate of EU countries such as Italy, Spain, and Greece, three nations that have been hit hard with the worldwide derivatives crisis and the subsequent imposition of austerity.

Various newspapers from all across Italy are reporting that around 80 members of the Bilderberg Group, particularly the Bilderberg Steering Committee, have been called to Rome for a semi-secret meeting to discuss the unfolding events of the engineered crisis.

In contradiction to the traditional methods of secrecy used by the Bilderberg Group such as renting entire hotels for days on end and dispensing with the guests and even some of the workers during the conference, this Italian Bilderberg meeting is taking place at the same time as another popular event, the Rome Film Festival.

Supreme Court to Rule on Police Access to DNA Samples For "Crime-Fighting Databases"

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post
November 12, 2012

As the US Supreme Court meets privately over the next few days, it seems that all of the pieces of the puzzle are coming together in order to form what will undeniably be the most scientifically advanced dictatorship ever realized in world history.

Supreme Court Justices are currently meeting in private for the purpose of deciding whether or not to hear a highly important genetic privacy case regarding the possibility that government authority extends to taking DNA samples from anyone arrested for “serious” crimes. If the court rules in favor of the prosecutors who wish for greater access to DNA samples, convictions will not be necessary to require DNA from arrestees.

As David Kravetz writes for Wired, at least 21 states and the federal government have policies and laws requiring suspects to give DNA samples upon their arrest. In these states, DNA saliva samples are added into state and federal “crime-fighting databases,” effectively creating a catalog of individuals and their most personal information, even those not guilty of committing a crime.

Kravetz writes, “The issue confronts the government’s interest in solving crime, balanced against the constitutional rights of those arrested to be free from government intrusion.”

Alongside the mysterious “booms” which were recently heard and felt all across the Pee Dee region of South Carolina, it appears that there were also reports of these same types of incidents occurring much farther north, this time in Manchester Township, New Jersey.

According to an NBC 10 report, broadcast on October 5, 2012, residents who experienced the event said that both the noise and the impact felt exactly like an explosion, with many stating that the impact actually shook the windows of their home.

NBC 10 conducted interviews with several of the Manchester Township citizens who all agreed that the sound and impact was akin to an explosion, with some interviewees stating that the “booms” were strong enough to frighten them awake.

Bill Gates Malaria Vaccine Flops In African Trials

Brandon Turbeville
November 10, 2012
Dees Illustration
In what may prove to be a minor public relations setback for vaccine pushers like Bill Gates and GlaxoSmithKline, the much touted Mosquirix malaria vaccine recently rolled out in Africa has been officially demonstrated to be only 30% effective in babies.

Results from the final-stage trial administered by GSK appeared to demonstrate that the vaccine only provided “modest protection” for babies aged six to 12 weeks, with a reduction in the contraction of the disease by only 30%, a much lower number than what had been touted by those promoting the jab in the industry and the corporate media.

Reuters also reports that for children after the age of six months, a 65% rate was established. For children of five to 17 months old, the researchers claim a protection of around 50%.

In response to what Reuters has dubbed a “surprisingly poor result” for the vaccine, Bill Gates stated, “The efficacy came back lower than we had hoped, but developing a vaccine against a parasite is a very hard thing to do.”

Indeed, Gates is correct in suggesting the difficulty for creating a vaccine for a Protozoan, the type of parasite which causes malaria, This is because vaccines are supposedly designed to protect against viruses. Thus, the Mosquirix vaccine enters into the growing science of DNA vaccines – a research field which is expanding but also one in which the science is still very much out in regards to effectiveness, safety, and even possibility.

Numerous Reports of Mysterious Booms and Strange Lights Over South Carolina

Brandon Turbeville
November 8, 2012

Several months ago I wrote an article entitled “Investigation Continues Into Source of Strange Michigan Area ‘Explosions’ and Radiation Spikes,” where I reported on the mysterious sounds and vibrations felt by countless individuals all over the state of Michigan. In this case, the corporate media, law enforcement, and the military typically tried to downplay the anomalies, even to the point of arresting activist journalists for appearing at the local military base with questions as to the nature of the disturbances.

In Michigan, residents all across the state and into Indiana, reported hearing loud explosions which actually rocked the ground hard enough to shake their houses. Bob Powell of The Truth Is Viral, who lives in the area, and is himself a military veteran, described the “explosions” as being similar to the firing of artillery both in sound and impact.

Recently, however, almost exactly the same kind of incident has occurred in South Carolina, spanning the entire Pee Dee region and all the way into North Carolina. On the evening of November 5, around 7:30-7:45 p.m., various law enforcement and local news agencies were contacted by individuals living in the Pee Dee region of South Carolina in reference to a loud “boom” that was large enough to shake their houses.

The reports were numerous around Pamplico, Johnsonville, Marion, Hemingway, Aynor, Nichols, Hannah, and Mullins. However, as stated earlier, reports also came from as far away as Evergreen, North Carolina.

Marion County dispatchers alone received more than 100 calls in ten minutes related to the “booms."

It's Official: Liberals and Conservatives Becoming Zombies

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post
November 8, 2012

In the wake of the 2012 Presidential election, the expected gloating over Obama’s victory and sulking over Romney’s defeat by their respective supporters is taking its typical turn toward the absurd, at least for those who are aware of the true lack of choice that was presented in this election. Anthony Freda Art

As every other failed presidential campaign in history has done, the Romney camp will soon come to grips with their loss. The Obama camp, however, will now be presented with four more years of a President who has been and will continue to be identical to the President they claimed to have hated for so many years.

As Obama continues to execute, for another four years, the very same policies implemented by Bush (and by Romney had he been elected), individuals who call themselves “liberals” or “progressives” will be faced with the challenge of defending what they perceive to be “their candidate” irrespective of reality, facts, and common sense.

Like the first four years, self-proclaimed progressives will continue to support the wholesale slaughter of innocent people in foreign countries, indefinite detention, banker bailouts, free trade, and a gross violation of civil liberties and Constitutional rights. While these very acts were once what liberals claimed was fueling their hatred of George W. Bush, it turns out that what passes for a progressive in 2012 is a rejection of war and totalitarianism directed by Republicans – not war and totalitarianism itself.

Indeed, when asking your average Obama fan their reason for such irrational support, one can scarcely receive an answer that does not have its root in false and divisive social paradigms such as his party, his race, or his age. Simply put, Obama supporters main reason for their allegiance to Barack Obama can be boiled down to two words – “He’s Obama!”

Katerina Jeleva's Five-Year Battle to Reclaim Her Son From Rogue Family Court System Continues

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post
November 5, 2012

Dees Illustration
As far back as May, I wrote an article entitled, “Utah Woman Has Son Stolen By DCFS Agent Despite Declaration of Innocence by Court and Social Services,” where I discussed the case of Katerina Jeleva, a Utah mother who has been victimized by an out-of-control Child Protective Services system. If you are new to this case, I encourage you to go to the article linked above in order to understand the background behind this present update on her case. You should also take a look at my article entitled, “Katerina Jeleva Continues Legal Battle to Rescue Son From Child Protective Services” for more details.

In short, when Katerina was conveniently served with a Protective Order by her ex-husband shortly after his own bankruptcy proceeding, Katerina’s son was immediately taken from her by DCFS agents and armed police. Yet, after repeated interviews and investigations by psychologists, sex abuse investigators, and other DCFS agents, it was determined that there was absolutely no evidence that Katerina had abused her son.

Soon after her son was returned to her, however, Katerina was served with yet another Protective Order by her ex-husband – this time with the help of rogue Guardian ad Litem, Amber Ruder. Once again, after the filing of the second Protective Order, Katerina’s son was forcibly removed from her, with police literally taking the child out of her arms.

The process of interviews and investigations thus began anew and, again, Katerina was exonerated. Yet, after being ordered to organize and facilitate the family therapy sessions, Guardian ad Litem Amber Ruder has flatly refused to obey the judge’s orders, telling Katerina that she “cannot and will not do this for you.” Ruder subsequently claimed that Katerina’s son may not be returned to her at all because the two have been separated for such a long time that it might traumatize the child to return to his mother. This is in regards to a child who, in the opinion of the child psychologist who interviewed him, showed signs of being coached by other adults in what to say to the therapist in order to implicate his mother in misconduct in the first place.

'Smart City' Failures Dumped on Taxpayers

Brandon Turbeville
October 31, 2012
If there was ever any doubt as to whether or not the Smart Grid aspect of UN Agenda 21 is marching forward, recent developments in Boulder, Colorado should dispel such skepticism. Likewise, these developments should also make clear that so-called Smart technology is about much more than simply cost saving.
The relevant part of this story starts as far back as 2007 when Boulder entered into an agreement with XcelEnergy to enable the city to become the world’s first “smart city.”
For those who are unaware of what the terms “Smart Grid” and “Smart City” refer to, the Smart Grid is essentially a computerized system that allows the monitoring and control over energy use from power the plant source to every appliance in the home. Smart Grid technology is a major part of UN Agenda 21, the United Nations plans to herd a drastically reduced population into “human habitat areas,” meaning ultra-modern super cities with stack em’ and pack em’ dwelling structures and zero contact with nature and the outside world.
Smart Grid technology includes the infamous “Smart Meter,” which is not only a Big Brother spy device that monitors the amount of power consumed in the household (even down to the specific devices using that power), but it is also linked to a variety of adverse health effects as a result of the frequencies they emit.

Third Party Debates and UFAA Offer a Road Map for Political Success

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post
October 26, 2012

At times in America, it seems like there are at least two very different but parallel realities in existence. In one of these realities, the population has accepted total government/corporate control over the entirety of their lives; whereas, in the other, the population has rejected that notion.

Likewise, there appears to be a universe where perpetual war is accepted by the masses as a necessity; while, in the other, the populace recognizes the necessity of ending it.

Concurrently, one philosophy holds that a ravaged planet, large-scale death, and a constant culture of want is nothing more than collateral damage, while the other is doing its best to envision a world in which these conditions no longer exist.

Of course, those individuals participating in the second version of reality – the one seeking to free humanity from the clutches of the first – have a vast disagreement on how to do so. While some may approach the implementation of much needed changes from the left, others may approach it from the right. Others may approach changing the establishment from a completely unique position.

Regardless, it is undeniable that it is the first set of individuals who are granted virtually all of the air time and all of the so-called “credibility” in any given debate. In polite and traditional society, alternative (itself a pejorative term) ideas are ridiculed if they are ever able to slip by the gatekeepers of the phony left-right paradigm seeking to relegate the human mind to malevolently-constructed boundaries.

However, on October 23, 2012, it seems that alternative voices did manage to slip past those boundaries even if it was only for a brief hour. Of course, this was not because there is a groundswell of American voters who will be voting third party this year; and it certainly was not because the mainstream media decided to abruptly shift gears and begin covering legitimate news and opinion. It was because, despite the enormous roadblocks placed in front of any third party candidate, four “third parties” simply went ahead with a debate that they have been banned from having in front of a mainstream audience ever since recent memory permits.

In keeping with the “parallel universe” theme, the third party debate -- thanks in large part to the participation of Larry King who brought with him some level of mainstream media capital -- aired an alternative path to many Americans watching the Obama/Romney theatre. The true positive aspects of the airing of the debate was not in the outcome in the upcoming election (no one truly has any expectations of this), it was in the fact that in an election year where the two candidates struggle even to appear different in the presentation of their messages, visions of an alternative America, for a split second, managed to slip through.

Obviously, we should not overemphasize the effects of the third party debate. We cannot allow ourselves to be overtaken with false hope or an inflated sense of what has taken place. However, we must not fall into the trap of hopelessness either. If anything, the third party debate should encourage those of us who are actually fighting to change the wasteland that is America into a garden of plenty that much more reason to continue our work.

Wars cannot be won using a purely defensive strategy. Nor can they be successful by using only one type of offense. Civil disobedience, non-compliance, and education all have their place and all three are indispensable methods of resistance. However, we cannot ignore the political system as a mechanism for bringing about the change we desire to see.

On October 30, 2012, a second “third party” debate between the candidates who received the most votes from the viewing audience at the first event is scheduled to take place. This time, the hopes are that even more attention will be focused on the event than there was the first time around, particularly the attention of the average American voter.

The second debate, organized by Free and Equal, comes three days on the heels of the United Front Against Austerity conference, which takes place on October 27, a gathering of noted individuals opposed to the economic and civic implosion of the United States and specifically the implementation of austerity measures upon the American people. Most notably, it is the goal of the UFAA to hammer out a platform of demands by which to base a true revolution and political movement.

The development of a set of demands has, of course, been one of my own talking points for the better part of a year as one may read in my article, “The American Corporate Party and the Derailing of Revolution” and my book, Five Sense Solutions.

The UFAA conference will involve a series of addresses, both live and recorded, from distinguished speakers, as well as 4+ hours of moderated presentation of proposals and subsequent debate.

The UFAA is not only focused on a platform, however, it is also focusing on the development of organization, a strategy and road map for political success, and the attraction of leadership to the cause.

In the end, for all of the obstacles that we face and with the overall worsening of the condition regarding the fate of free humanity on a global scale, there are avenues of resistance that not only provide outlets for that resistance but for its success. These two gatherings – the next Free And Equal third party debate and the UFAA – may very well be the first hints of motion by one of the many vehicles we may use to free ourselves.

Without a doubt, we must take advantage of every opportunity that comes our way.

Romney's Corporate Ties Point to Election Fraud on November 6

Author’s Note: This article should not be interpreted as favoring one candidate over another or as suggesting that there is any difference between the two – only as making an attempt to present concerns regarding potential election fraud in Ohio that may influence the Presidential election.

Anthony Freda Art

Amidst the farcical election fury being hyped and circulated by the mainstream media, political pundits are already hailing Ohio as a battleground state. After all, with statistics showing that no Republican President since JFK in 1960 has ever been elected to the position without receiving Ohio’s electoral votes, this can hardly be denied.

Without waxing too hard on Ohio, it is clear that the state, as it is in every Presidential election, is one of the important ones.

This is precisely why the Romney-backed voting machines which are going to be in place in at least two Ohio counties this election day is so concerning.

Essentially, via the family equity fund Solamere and its filtered investments in H.I.G. Capital, both the Romney family and campaign hold a serious share and connection to three out of 5 board members in Hart Intercivic, a company that itself owns the voting machines to be used at select locations like Hamilton County (Cincinnati) in Ohio, as well as other locations across the country. It should be noted that the Hart Intercivic machines are notorious for their malfunctions.

As previously stated, the initial source of connection between the Romney faction and the Hart Intercivic machines begins with the family equity fund known as Solamere, which coincidentally bears the name of the wealthy Utah ski resort frequented by the Romney family.

As Lee Fang of The Nation reports, the Solamere fund was founded by Mitt’s son, Tagg Romney as well as Mitt’s campaign finance chair, Spencer Zwick. Both Mitt’s wife, Ann, and his brother, G. Scott, are also invested in the fund. Obviously, Mitt Romney himself has contributed some money of his own, $10 million to be exact, as “seed money,” even personally speaking at the fund’s first full investors conference.

It should also be noted that Romney’s western regional finance coordinator, Kaitlin O’Reilly, and his finance director, Richard Morley, have both come from Solamere’s roster with O’Reilly being listed as an executive assistant at the equity fund.

O’Reilly is also listed as an executive assistant at SJZ LLC, a campaign finance consulting firm founded by her boss and fellow founder of Solamere as well as Romney campaign finance chair Spencer Zwick. As Truthout mentions, SJZ LLC has billed the Romney campaign over $2 million for its services in his presidential run. Also bearing notice is the fact that the firm has billed around $9,687,582 to other Congressional campaigns.

One more individual deserving dishonorable mention is Marc J. Leder, the host of the private fundraiser where Mitt made his now infamous “47%” remarks. Leder is the co-CEO of Sun Capital, another “partner” of Solamere.

Unfortunately, Solamere’s website has been reduced to a single front page, making it that much more difficult to discover the rest of the fund’s “partners.” However, some rare but real reporting is beginning to aid in the piecing together of the puzzle.

It is important to understand that Solamere is different from other private equity firms in that it does not make investments in companies directly. Instead, the fund invests with other funds, which it calls partners, and then directs the investments from there.
One of these co-called partners with the Solamere fund is H.I.G. Capital, the fund used to invest in the third largest voting machine manufacturer in the nation.

As reported by, H.I.G. Capital maintains at least three close associates of the Romney family on its board of directors. Furthermore, Directors John P. Bolduk and Douglas Berman are both major Romney supporters and fundraisers. Likewise for the H.I.G. manager Brian Shortsleeve.
Even more interesting is that nearly one third of H.I.G.’s leadership personnel have previously worked at Romney’s Bain Capital firm of asset stripping fame. To date, approximately $338,000 have been raised for Romney’s campaign by  H.I.G. employees.

The make-up and the Romney-related investment connections of H.I.G. are relevant in regards to their subsequent relationship to Hart Intercivic, the company that owns the notoriously faulty electronic voting machines mentioned earlier.
Indeed, H.I.G. is a major investor in Hart Intercivic, and an indirect connection to the Romney family via Solamere, the family’s equity fund. With this in mind, one must wonder whether or not the indirect connection between the Romney clan and Hart Intercivic is not more direct than meets the eye. After all, the fund itself does not invest directly in companies, but in other equity funds; perhaps a design to further the distance between one’s family and the perception of impropriety.
With the media already hyping the possibility that Ohio, and Cincinnati in particular, could be “ground zero” in the 2012 Presidential election, the fact that Hart Intercivic’s voting machines are present in Hamilton County (home to Cincinnati) should raise some serious concerns.
As Bello, Fitrakis, and Wasserman write for TruthOut:
. . . these Hart machines are deeply flawed and widely known to be open to a troubling variety of attacks and breakdowns. There is no legal or other means to definitively monitor and re-check a tally compiled on Hart or other electronic voting machines. Ohio’s current governor and secretary of state are both Republicans.
As Fitrakis and Wasserman wrote in a separate report on the issue:

US courts have consistently ruled that the software in electronic voting machines is proprietary to the manufacturer, even though individual election boards may own the actual machines. Thus there will be no vote count transparency on election night in Ohio. The tally will be conducted by Hart Intercivic and controlled by Husted and Kasich, with no public recourse or accountability. As federal testimony from the deceased Michael Connell made clear in 2008, electronically flipping an election is relatively cheap and easy to do, especially if you or your compatriots programmed the machines.
However, the Daily Kos reports that influencing the election via Hart Intercivic’s machines might be a bit easier than simply reprogramming, preprogramming, or hacking voting machine codes. The article reads:
But, before people get carried away with scenarios of stolen elections using dodgy computer code, let me point out that it would be quite easy to 'influence' an election without all that much effort. All one has to do is control machine deployment. If the number of 'functional' machines were to become in short supply on election day, and if the 'malfunctioning' machines tended to be in key precincts, it would certainly be possible to affect an election, possibly decisively.
Such a scheme is far safer than actual screwing with the code, since, despite what you read online, is not as easy as some would have you believe without leaving evidence of tampering. No, machine failure is far easier to manage (and is a simple variation of vote suppression being perpetrated in states right now) especially as the code in these machines are the software equivalent of the Ford Pinto.
Election fraud, often misleadingly referred to as voter fraud, has run rampant in virtually every Presidential election in modern history in one form or another, with results varying in scale. The 2000 “election” of George W. Bush will, of course, live on in infamy in the context of election history.
However, in terms of Ohio votes, specifically, the 2004 elections that saw Bush victorious over Kerry bear a striking similarity to the possibilities discussed above regarding the 2012 elections. Again, as TruthOut summarizes:
The widespread use of electronic voting machines from ES&S, and of Diebold software maintained by Triad, allowed Blackwell [then Ohio Secretary of State] to electronically flip a 4% Kerry lead to a 2% Bush victory in the dead of election night. ES&S, Diebold and Triad were all owned or operated by Republican partisans. The shift of more than 300,000 votes after 12:20 am election night was a virtual statistical impossibility. It was engineered by Michael Connell, an IT specialist long affiliated with the Bush Family. Blackwell gave Connell's Ohio-based GovTech the contract to count Ohio's votes, which was done on servers housed in the Old Pioneer Bank Building in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Thus the Ohio vote tally was done on servers that also carried the e-mail for Karl Rove and the national Republican Party. Connell died in a mysterious plane crash in December, 2008, after being subpoenaed in the King-Lincoln-Bronzeville federal lawsuit focused on how the 2004 election was decided (disclosure: we were attorney and plaintiff in that suit).
Diebold's founder, Walden O'Dell, had vowed to deliver Ohio's electoral votes---and thus the presidency---to his friend George W. Bush. That it was done in part on electronic voting machines and software O'Dell happened to own (Diebold has since changed hands twice) remains a cautionary red flag for those who believe merely winning the popular vote will give Barack Obama a second term.
In a flashback to the 2004 election, many Ohioans will once again go to the polls and cast their ballots on machines with close ownership ties to the Republican candidate. Also as in 2004, the Ohio Governor is a Republican, this time the fascist John Kasich who, according to TruthOut, is a millionaire via his work at Lehman Brothers and Fox News Network.

Truthout highlights that “Murdoch wrote Kasich a game-changing $1 million check just prior to his winning the statehouse, an electoral victory shrouded in electronic intrigue. The exit polls in that election indicated that his opponent, incumbent Democrat Ted Strickland, had actually won the popular vote.”

Furthermore, the Ohio Secretary of State is also a reactionary Republican who is currently suing in the US Supreme Court to put a stop to voting on the weekend prior to election day. Like Blackwell and Taft in 2004, Husted and Kasich will wield significant control over the vote count in Ohio in 2012 which itself is largely free of true accountability and transparency.
While, in all actuality, there is absolutely no difference between the two Presidential candidates (another flashback to previous elections), the issue of election fraud is entirely separate from the platform of glorified puppets. Aside from the legal and moral issue, the general rule of thumb is that you should never allow an oligarch to attack you on his own time. Thus, exposing any amount of election fraud is paramount. At the same time, however, we must be diligent in our refusal to endorse the controlled opposition given to us by the same oligarchy that controls the victor.

Romney's Top Adviser, Dov Zakheim, Connected To 9/11

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post
October 22, 2012

At this stage in the campaign, the claim that Mitt Romney and Barack Obama are virtually identical in every way can scarcely be denied. From their positions on healthcare, the implementation of economic austerity, and perpetual warfare, the Presidential candidate and the President himself are mirror images of one another with the minute exception of the political presentation of those polices and the much-exploited physical differences hyped by the media.

However, while Obama’s expansion of war and wholesale slaughter is accomplished through deceit and other covert forms of treachery, Mitt Romney’s war psychosis is manifested much more openly. As I detailed in my last article, “Open War Policy Revealed by Romney’s NeoCon Advisers,” Romney’s sprint toward a third world war of a potentially thermonuclear variety could scarcely be more clear, quite the rarity for Romney. 

With this in mind, I have written two articles dealing with Romney’s foreign policy advisers and their own ideological leanings. After all, regardless of the potential resting in the office of the President, the fact is that a President’s inner circle of advisers, as well as his cabinet, are, generally speaking, the foot soldiers in whatever foreign entanglements the country is set to find itself in.

Unsurprisingly, Romney’s foreign policy team is made up mainly of Neo-Cons left over from the boy Bush Administration, as well as other raving war hawks, Zionists, and imperialists.

In this regard, I encourage the reader to access my articles, “Open War Policy Revealed by Romney’s NeoCon Advisers,” (linked above) “Romney’s Foreign Policy Advisers Exposed As Globalists,” and “Mitt Romney’s 13 Globalist ‘Working Groups’ Exposed” for a summary of these individuals and their organizational memberships, affiliations, and past careers.

Yet, out of all the advisers listed as part of Romney’s foreign policy team, one member, Dov Zakheim, bears special notice, not least of which because he is considered to be the top adviser working amongst the publicly acknowledged branch of the team.
