Growing Potential for US Race Riots?

Image [found here]

The FBI has used tax dollars to pay race baiters, such as Hal Turner. Why are tax dollars being used to incite citizens to attack each other? If we fight amongst ourselves, we are less of a threat to the organized criminals now running the US.

More police on the streets is not the answer. Civilian Oversight of Police and Grand Juries are the answers. Police want more crime, youth going bad, and citizens fearing criminals. "Crime Farming" and revenue collection is what US police are about. Solving crimes and reducing crime means reduced budgets, reduced manpower, and reduced political power. If the police write their own rules with the courts as a rubber stamp, we get what we have.

Outside Milwaukee, riots broke out at the Wisconsin State fair earlier this month. It was alleged that hundreds of young black people were attacking white people randomly on the streets. The media has turned a blind eye to these unsettling events. Does this have anything to do with black male unemployment in the area?

US losing sovereignty to Global Financial Tyrants?

Global Financial Terrorists seems to be running the President, Congress, the Senate, the Courts, and policing/investigations. So, if we're being run offshore, we've lost our sovereignty. Small farm barns and factories rot and are being torn down all over the US. There is a corporate war on small business, the family, the self-employed, and those who would re-vitalize small farms and promote the re-industrialization of the US.

I, Steven G. Erickson, contacted Vermont US Senator Patrick Leahy. He seems to have consumed the Kool-Aid saying the US is protecting Libyan citizens who have their rights tramped on. Does the Libyan War prove the Iraq War was also a farce? Being a former prosecutor, and seemingly for the lawyer mafia, Leahy isn't willing to comment on court cases and civil rights abuses at the hands of police and the US rigged court system. I am disappointed in Leahy. I would expect more from him seeing what he has done in the past on the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Smedley Butler and the Banker/Corporate Attempted Coup

The most decorated military veteran of his time, Smedley Darlington Butler, 1881 - 1940 [Wikipedia Source]

"I spent 33 years and four months in active military service and during that period I spent most of my time as a high class thug for Big Business, for Wall Street and the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism. I helped make Mexico and especially Tampico safe for American oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefit of Wall Street. I helped purify Nicaragua for the International Banking House of Brown Brothers in 1902–1912. I brought light to the Dominican Republic for the American sugar interests in 1916. I helped make Honduras right for the American fruit companies in 1903. In China in 1927 I helped see to it that Standard Oil went on its way unmolested. Looking back on it, I might have given Al Capone a few hints. The best he could do was to operate his racket in three districts. I operated on three continents"

Allegations of the Business Plot

In November 1934, Butler alleged the existence of a political conspiracy of Wall Street interests to overthrow President Roosevelt, a series of allegations that came to be known in the media as the Business Plot.[53][54] A special committee of the House of Representatives headed by Representatives John W. McCormack of Massachusetts and Samuel Dickstein of New York, who was later alleged to have been a paid agent of the NKVD,[55] heard his testimony in secret.[56] The McCormack-Dickstein committee was a precursor to the House Committee on Un-American Activities.

In November 1934, Butler told the committee that a group of businessmen, saying they were backed by a private army of 500,000 ex-soldiers and others, intended to establish a fascist dictatorship. Butler had been asked to lead it, he said, by Gerald P. MacGuire, a bond salesman with Grayson M–P Murphy & Co. The New York Times reported that Butler had told friends that General Hugh S. Johnson, a former official with the National Recovery Administration, was to be installed as dictator. Butler said MacGuire had told him the attempted coup was backed by three million dollars, and that the 500,000 men were probably to be assembled in Washington, D.C. the following year. All the parties alleged to be involved, including Johnson, said there was no truth in the story, calling it a joke and a fantasy.[56]

In its report, the committee stated that it was unable to confirm Butler's statements other than the proposal from MacGuire, which it considered more or less confirmed by MacGuire's European reports.[57] No prosecutions or further investigations followed, and historians have questioned whether or not a coup was actually close to execution, although most agree that some sort of "wild scheme" was contemplated and discussed.[58][59][60][61] The news media initially dismissed the plot, with a New York Times editorial characterizing it as a "gigantic hoax".[62] When the committee's final report was released, the Times said the committee "purported to report that a two-month investigation had convinced it that General Butler's story of a Fascist march on Washington was alarmingly true" and "... also alleged that definite proof had been found that the much publicized Fascist march on Washington, which was to have been led by Major. Gen. Smedley D. Butler, retired, according to testimony at a hearing, was actually contemplated".[63]

The McCormack-Dickstein Committee confirmed some of Butler's accusations in its final report. "In the last few weeks of the committee's official life it received evidence showing that certain persons had made an attempt to establish a fascist organization in this country...There is no question that these attempts were discussed, were planned, and might have been placed in execution when and if the financial backers deemed it expedient."[64] [n 1][n 2]

[This Liveleak] video at about 30 seconds in, discusses the plot of major bank and corporate leaders out to overthrow the US Government to install a Corporate Dictator. Smedley D. Butler warned the people and the powers in the US Government. This was during the time of Franklin D. Roosevelt. How much time have these hijackers of humanity had to plot this time? Why did the perpetrators go unpunished then? Why do they go unpunished now?

(1 hour, 3 years ago)
Alex Jones interviews Randy Kelton in studio and discusses "Rule Of Law." Randy Kelton: A radio talk show host and founder of and, discusses with Alex how the same legal system can be used against the corrupt cops, district, city, county attorneys, and judges, that they use on us. Quoting from his Juris-Imprudence website he says: "No official has any immunity from criminal prosecution. The power to take back control of the legal system lies in that simple realization. The real check to abuse of power has always been in the hands of the people, yours and mine. This site is a demonstration of the power of the singular individual empowered with the realization s/he is sovereign." A very interesting interview, in that I want as many people as possible to see it, he talks about methods he's used to get people freed from wrongful imprisonment and charges dropped by simple procedures that any sovereign person can go about doing. Many police officers, jail guards, prosecutors, and judges do not follow correct procedure during arrest, detainment, and court proceedings, which can then be used to the defendants advantage. This enables them to have the charges dropped, and/or be freed from detainment. Listen to the way Randy explains these methods by telling of his experiences and how he has helped others who have been wrongfully arrested and detained

The ATF has gotten guns to Mexican drug gangs to attack the average American right to bear arms according to Alex Jones. Shouldn't officials who break the law be punished, not promoted?

They wanted help in setting up citizens so they'd lose their guns, their properties, their small businesses, their cash and assets, and/or their children. I refused and they then followed me around, terrorized me, stalked me, and were burning gas in two cruisers to follow me to work and tens of thousands of tax dollars enforcing a "No Dating Policy" in retaliation for my dumping a police informant offered money to set me up for a false arrest. She offered me a Civic Award to be given by Stafford Springs, Connecticut, officials for my efforts to improve life for downtown residents or lose my property, daughter, my contracting business, and be arrested and go to prison if I didn't continue dating her. If crap like this can happen, are any of us really safe in America?

I refused to become a police informant, and refused to date an informant, and was railroaded to prison. [pictures, video, story]. I've been asked if I'd take pennies on the dollar compensation for my losses, take my blogs and videos down, change my name and go on with my life if my criminal record is expunged. No money can compensate me for seeing the true evil that is an excuse for courts, policing, and government in the United States of America, and for what I've gone through. I may never see my daughter, grandchildren if I have them, and live life to its potential with a bogus criminal record. I would consider taking an offer from officials to wipe my record and pay me pennies on the dollar for what I'm out.

N. Korea, model for American Enslavement?

Prisoner ball and chain image [found here]

Millions of citizens in North Korea toe the mark. They live under constant fear. The prison camp is the necessary tool to make all citizens fall into line.

Americans are forced to accept torture, their kids being molested by government workers at airports and at transportation hubs. Free speech is being curbed, we are being blasted with radiation to check us for weapons, wherever we are in public, to make us safe. New Presidential, and important person, rules in America make it so citizens can be imprisoned without charges, hearings, or release date. Officials can order murders of Americans, anywhere, is modern reality. The President and his minions have the power of life, and death.

Please excuse 30 seconds of advertisements at the beginning of the below video. Why should America start to resemble the repression in North Korea? Are you going to let America become North Korea? Are you paying taxes to make it so? Are you willing to stand up, do something, and prevent what seems to be the eventuality?

Follow Lauren on Twitter:


[click here] for post on police abuse of cell phone GPS tracking technology

Why you should never talk to the police on any subject, and always plead the 5th:
Police in the US are armed revenue collectors, they're guards of the state and government, and they have no obligation to enforce laws, protect and serve you, arrest criminals, and to take your complaints. Police voluntarily, at their discretion, enforce laws for the people, not the state. Maybe 99% of their duties are for revenue collection, and protecting the interests of those in government, and maybe 1% actual protection and service for the people.

If two homeless people get in a knife fight, and one is stabbed, and they are fighting drunk over illegal drugs, maybe neither will even be arrested, or get medical attention. If a married couple argues, and the police show up, maybe both are arrested, both need to hire lawyers, both have to pay fines and court ordered classes, may have to pay for being on probation. The argument can easily cost a struggling family over $10,000. If either spouse violated probation by coming to the attention of police, maybe even failure to stop before a stop line at a stop sign, that infraction could land the spouse in prison. The spouse is not allowed to see, or live with the other spouse, or with their children, for the entire term of probation, as one spouse is a crime victim of the other as they had an argument. As ludicrous as that is, it is proof that the state is about breaking up marriages, taking away children, processing and imprisoning citizens, and wrecking non-organized crime connected small business.

You should not allow Connecticut Department and Families, DCF, or your state's equivalent in your home, and you should not talk to them unless they have a warrant, or you are ordered by the court to do so. Unqualified state workers, often paid six figure salaries, are given incentives to lie, file false reports, and illegally officially kidnap your children. Former Connecticut Governor [John G. Rowland] and the head of DCF, [Kristine Regaglia] were given bribes and freebies from organized crime to see that as many good children were taken away from good families so organized crime could build, maintain, and supply "Kiddie Max Prisons" for kids using federal tax dollars. What crimes against humanity has former Connecticut Governor [M. Jodi Rell] committed and not been punished for?

Lt. [Thomas "The Duck" Davoren] who is now a Connecticut State Police Colonel told me that his number one duty is, "To protect the integrity of the system." I asked him why I was being arrested and faced, and was eventually put in prison, for resisting being mugged by a police informant on my own property. Police had refused to protect and serve, and been threatening me, terrorizing, and stalking me months, possibly years. Police refused to take my complaint about being attacked on my property, after being stalked, receiving death threats, and facing a knife wielding attacker demanding my wallet saying he'd kill me if I didn't give it up. I pepper sprayed him. Only I was arrested, I had no record, was offered no deals, just a year and a half in prison, and got a year in prison. This is "justice in the USA", and the rest of you get this same Police State abuse in courts and at the hands of police. Why do you pay tax dollars to be abused like this?

Sgt. [Samuel Izzarelli], now a Leuitenant, head of Troop C, Tolland Connecticut, State Police, told me that I would not have been a target of police, for arrest, prison, property and business loss if I didn't choose to be a slumlord, because all landlords are slumlords, and a contractor, because all contractors are drunks according to Izzarelli. So, saving for years, maintaining good credit, owning a home, building a contracting business over decades, and raising a family is a reason to be railroaded to prison using thieves, prostitutes, drug dealers, and vandals as police informants???!!!

So, giving a Police State more, and more power, and no civilian oversight is not a good idea. Should you allow these people to domestically spy on you, shut off your internet, your cell phone, and deny you free speech when your rights are violated by the Police State?

CA transit agency under fire over wireless shutoff

By PAUL ELIAS, Associated Press AP (copyright)

A growing number of free speech advocates criticized a San Francisco Bay area transit agency on Monday, saying its decision to cut off wireless service in an effort to stifle a protest last week was unconstitutional.

The mounting criticism comes as the Bay Area Rapid Transit agency prepares for renewed protests during the evening commute, though officials would not say whether they would block cell phone service again.

BART blocked the signal last Thursday at several San Francisco stations, as it tried to thwart a planned protest over the July 3 shooting death of a 45-year-old victim by BART police. Officials said he was wielding a knife

A hacker group known as Anonymous, angry over BART's action, broke into an agency website, and posted contact information for more than 2,000 customers.

The hacker group's action was the latest showdown between anarchists angry at perceived attempts to limit free speech and officials trying to control protests that grow out of social networking and have the potential to become violent.

The legal groups, such as the American Civil Liberties Union, Electronic Frontier Foundation and others, are considering whether to file lawsuits against BART.

Critics say the agency violated free speech protections with a move seen only in Egypt during protests against its former president. The ACLU said it will decide its next steps after meeting with BART's police chief Monday afternoon.

BART officials have said they are working on a plan to block any efforts by protesters to disrupt the service, which carries 190,000 passengers during the morning and evening commutes every day.

BART spokesman Jim Allison said police will be staffing stations and trains and that the agency had already contacted San Francisco police.

The transit agency disabled the effected website,, Sunday night after it also had been altered by apparent hackers who posted images of the so-called Guy Fawkes masks that anarchists have previously worn when showing up to physical protests.

Anonymous posted people's names, phone numbers, and street and email addresses on its own website, while also calling for a disruption of BART's evening commute Monday.

"We are Anonymous, we are your citizens, we are the people, we do not tolerate oppression from any government agency," the hackers wrote on their own website. "BART has proved multiple times that they have no problem exploiting and abusing the people."

Allison described as a "satellite site" used for marketing purposes. It's operated by an outside company and sends BART alerts and other information to customers, Allison said.

The names and contact info published by Sunday came from a database of 55,000 subscribers, he said. He did not know if the group had obtained information from all the subscribers, he said, adding that no bank account or credit card information was listed.

The BART computer problem was the latest hack the loosely organized group claimed credit for this year. Last month, the FBI and British and Dutch officials made 21 arrests, many of them related to the group's attacks on Internet payment provider PayPal Inc., which has been targeted over its refusal to process donations to WikiLeaks. The group also claims credit for disrupting the websites of Visa and MasterCard in December when the credit card companies stopped processing donations to WikiLeaks and its founder, Julian Assange.

Activists also remain upset by the 2009 death of Oscar Grant, an unarmed black passenger who was shot by a white officer on an Oakland train platform. The officer quit the force and was convicted of involuntary manslaughter after the shooting.

Facing backlash from civil rights advocates and one of its own board members, BART has defended the decision to block cell phone use, with Allison saying the cell phone disruptions were legal because the agency owns the property and infrastructure.

"I'm just shocked that they didn't think about the implications of this. We really don't have the right to be this type of censor," Lynette Sweet, who serves on BART's board of directors, said previously. "In my opinion, we've let the actions of a few people affect everybody. And that's not fair."

Laura Eichman was among those whose email and home phone number were published by the hackers Sunday.

"I think what they (the hackers) did was illegal and wrong. I work in IT myself, and I think that this was not ethical hacking. I think this was completely unjustified," Eichman said.

She said she doesn't blame BART and feels its action earlier in the week of blocking cell phone service was reasonable.

"It doesn't necessarily keep me from taking BART in the future but I will certainly have to review where I set up accounts and what kind of data I'm going to keep online," Eichman said.

Michael Beekman of San Francisco told the AP that he didn't approve of BART's move to cut cell phone service or the Anonymous posting.

"I'm not paranoid but i feel like it was an invasion of privacy," he said. "I thought I would never personally be involved in any of their (Anonymous') shenanigans."

The group Anonymous, according to its website, does "not tolerate oppression from any government agency," and it said it was releasing the User Info Database of as one of many actions to come.

Farmageddon Part 2, preparing for Soviet Style Farm/Land Grab

Alex Jones/Bob Chapman videos at bottom of post, scroll down

This is a continuation of [this post]

Alex Jones has millions of radio listeners. In a recent interview he had with Bob Chapman, many topics were discussed.

Many small farmers are probably stocking up on guns, clips, and ammo. What they aren't storing for water and food from their own land, they're probably stocking up canned and bottled. The fear of military helicopters, with machine guns hanging out the doors, with troops landing to kill all occupants in the farm house is a real fear.

The latest US Government ploy to make all farmers get Commercial Driver's Licenses is pure tyranny. Farmers recognize that. Being inspected at anytime, being invaded, having to get your animals IDs is just too much government intrusion into people's lives. It is also blatant profiteering. When it is to put you out of business in the interest of bankers and corporate lobbyists, it is organized crime.

I lost my rental properties in Stafford Springs, Connecticut, to organized crime, the police state, and the town hall mafia. I was told to sell my properties at a loss to the selectman's more important friends, "or else". [I got prison] for pepper spraying a police informant who had been threatening my life, stalking, and terrorizing me for weeks when he attacked me on my own property. I got prison for this "offense", losing contact with my daughter, most of my family, and losing the sum total of my life's work, including my contracting business built over 2 decades. So, I see parallels in what is going on now.

The only reason that I am alive, is that the Connecticut State Police and cretins in the Connecticut Court System didn't try hard enough to do the job.

So, if you decide to fight back, prison or being killed is a real possibility. I don't advocate that. But, I am not going to lay down my life willingly. I'd be willing to risk dying trying to defend my own life, if I am forced into that situation. I believe in a citizen's right to be left alone, to bear arms, and to resist tyranny. If all shit hits the fan, I would be unarmed, carrying a backpack with the minimal essentials, a passport, and look to just survive long enough to cross a border if I had to.

I fear that two of my friends who died a week apart of "natural causes", were talking about being in, or considering joining a militia. Stocking up on gold or silver, guns and ammo, and/or food can put you on the top of a list to be killed, imprisoned, and/or put you on a secret police arrest on sight target list.

I really don't know what can be done to battle global organized crime that has decades to prepare for their war on us. Some sort of mass, peaceful resistance might be the most effective. Their fear of a mass, armed revolt isn't a bad ace in the hole either ...

Farmageddon, the corporate US Gov Ploy to finish off small farms/small business

Battery converted tractor image [found here]

Dow Chemical, Monsanto, other corporations, and the foreign bank and corporation controlled US Government want to drive the final nail into the coffins of small farmers, and even non-corporate landscaping services. Is there a government war on the people to prevent us from feeding ourselves, being self-employed, and owning small businesses. Should a CDL license be needed to drive a lawn tractor or farm tractor, or other equipment on private property, NOT ON PUBLIC ROADS?

Should running a small farm, owning a small business, or being self-employed be illegal in America?

Is this power grab just too much? Alex Jones suggests that we Americans obey no federal laws at all. What do you think? Scroll down for video.

I had two cruisers following me around, almost daily, wherever I went. I was contracting for homeowners and businesses, legally, and I was fixing up, and renting out apartments, in properties I had purchased, and fixed up from a boarded up condition, legally. Connecticut State Police Officer [Samuel Izzarelli] told me I was a target of police for my choice of professions and that I should have chosen a better one. Criminals, drug dealers, prostitutes, and vandals were police minions to help take down people like me. At a time that a child molester got probation, armed robbers, and even gang members on probation who raped their ex-girlfriends, I got prison for resisting being beaten up on my own property, after being terrorized and threatened by police and their gang members called police informants.

So, from my perspective, the war is truly against us. They've been preparing for decades. Most are still blind to the real agenda.

Callers Sound Off on Transportation Dept. Rule Requiring A CDL for All Farmers! - Alex Jones Tv 1/2

A new rule being proposed by the federal Department of Transportation would require farmers to get commercial drivers licenses.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, which is a part of DOT, wants to adopt standards that would reclassify all farm vehicles and implements as Commercial Motor Vehicles, officials said. Likewise, the proposal, if adopted, would require all farmers and everyone on the farm who operates any of the equipment to obtain a CDL, they added.

The proposed rule change would mean that anyone who drives a tractor or operates any piece of motorized farming equipment would be required to pass the same tests and complete the same detailed forms and logs required of semi-tractor trailer drivers.

More Credible Accusations that the CIA orchestrated 9-11?

Rob Kall's "Quick Link" from text:

In a new documentary, ex-national security aide Richard Clarke suggests the CIA tried to recruit 9/11 hijackers--then covered it up. With the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks only a month away, former CIA Director George Tenet and two former top aides are fighting back hard against allegations that they engaged in a massive cover-up in 2000 and 2001 to hide intelligence from the White House and the FBI that might have prevented the attacks. The source of the explosive, unproved allegations is a man who once considered Tenet a close friend: former White House counterterrorism czar Richard Clarke, who makes the charges against Tenet and the CIA in an interview for a radio documentary timed to the 10th anniversary next month. Clarke speculates that the CIA withheld the information because the agency had been trying to recruit the terrorists...

Southern Appalachian Repertory Theatre, SART

West Virginia style "Hillbilly Overalls" pic [found here]

Many of us, who work too often unpaid, in the independent film and documentary industry, more and more, are trying to network just to survive in this economy. We're also sick of the corporate bankster propaganda movies where big corporation items, cars, and war is glamorized for the mostly American weak-minded. Community theater is a place for networking, getting to know like-minded people, to have fun, and just see other Americans who care, and what they have to say on issues. America needs some sort of resurgence of a grass roots industry as factories and small farm barns rot into the ground.

If the below theater was somewhere I could get to on my limited budget, I would have already made a personal visit and said hello.
