    Apr 29, 2013 THIS BRIEF DOCUMENTARY SHOULD OPEN A FEW EYES TO THE REALITY BEHIND THE WORLD’S MOST POWERFUL (AND REAL) CABAL.

    “Can you imagine if the American public knew there was this ‘club’  that  met every month secretly in Switzerland and made decisions that dramatically affected their lives, but we’re not going to tell you about it because it’s too complicated.”

    “THE MONARCHS OF MONEY”  Euro-Banking conspiracy to control the United States currency has been going on  for a very, very long time.

    FIRST,  “Give me control over a nation’s currency, and I care not who makes its laws.” MAYER AMSCHEL ROTHSCHILD  quote exact date unknown (1743-1812)

    ——————————————————————————————

    In 1790 Thomas Jefferson knew, he watched  and he weighed in and argued that the United States needed a publicly-owned central bank so that “EUROPEAN MONARCHS” and aristocrats could not use the printing of money to control the affairs of the new nation.

    1800 Thomas Jefferson  A debt of an hundred millions, growing by USURIOUS interest, and an artificial paper phalanx, overruling the agricultural mass of our country have a PORTENTOUS aspect. (Letter to Samuel Adams, 1800)

    Added for clarity, USURIOUS, charging illegal or exorbitant rates of interest for the use of money: a USURIOUS  moneylender. “PORTENTOUS SIGNS” ominous, warning, premonitory, threatening, menacing, ill-omened, foreboding, inauspicious, unfavorable.

    1816 Thomas Jefferson  I place economy among the first and most important of republican virtues, and public debt as the greatest of the dangers to be feared. (Letter to Governor Plumber, 1816)

    1788  Thomas Jefferson asked… What is to hinder them (the European Monarchs) from creating a perpetual debt?

    It was just a matter of time and computer technology,  In 1954 it was well recognized by those in positions of authority that it was only a matter of time, only a few decades, before the general public would be able to grasp and upset the cradle of power, for the very elements of the new silent weapon TECHNOLOGY WERE AS ACCESSIBLE for a public utopia as they were for providing a private utopia.

    Everybody knows it is all about the money

    But, nobody knows how much money?

    And nobody even knows what kind of money?

    ————————————————————

    I’M STOPPING RIGHT HERE!

    May, 18, 2017 EVERYBODY KNOWS REAL MONEY IS CASH.

    U.S. paid $1.3 billion to Iran two days after cash delivery – CBS News

    EVERYBODY KNOWS WHAT PAPERLESS MONEY IS.

    ONLINE BANKING IS MONEY IN CYBERSPACE,  IT’S NEW NAME IS DIGITAL CURRENCY.

    Everybody, uses the  online cyberspace banking paperless money. Paperless money banking is so much easier online in cyberspace, automatic paperless online cyber deposits of money for everyone and everything including deposits to paperless plastic cards (some are required by law), Indeed, it can be cheaper if you pay your bills online, sign up for automatic paperless cyber payments on line.

    2017  The recent cyberattacks raises the questions

    How much emergency cash do you need stashed in case the grid goes down? Like, the president declares a national emergency, and you know that you won’t have access to your bank account for one full week? Indeed, a national emergency fund should be reserved for catastrophes in which you cannot use credit cards.

    The 1978 the concept of A Paperless society was one in which paper communication (written documents, mail, letters, etc.) is replaced by communication and storage.

    WHEN WAS THE  CONCEPT A PAPERLESS MONEY SOCIETY CREATED?

    WHEN THE U.S. GOVERNMENT MANUFACTURED A DIGITAL CURRENCY DEBT OF $10 TRILLION DOLLARS?

    Computers infected by this second virus (are not ransomeware) they do not have their functions altered, nor are their files encrypted. INSTEAD, THEY MANUFACTURE DIGITAL CURRENCY.

    There exists several different kinds of online currencies, the most famous being Bitcoin. But this second attack is designed to generate a newer form of digital cash called Monero.

    Proofpoint said THE VIRUS INSTALLS THE ADYLKUZZ CURRENCY “MINER” – a sort of malware which hijacks a computer’s processing power to solve complex math problems AND EARN DIGITAL MONEY.

    There exists several different kinds of online currencies, the most famous being BITCOIN. But this second attack is designed to generate a newer form of digital cash called MONERO.

    Proofpoint estimates this relatively unobtrusive computer virus generated more than a million euro – much more than what the wannacry hackers extorted from their ransomware attack.

    Monero offers enhanced anonymity features and is the currency of darknet market place AlphaBay. Experts also believe the currency has been pursued by North Korea-linked hacker groups.

    —————————————————

    THE WA DC ESTABLISHMENT IS REALLY BIG ON THE BLAME GAME

    FIRST IT WAS BLAME EVERYTHING ON RUSSIA

    Russia got hacked  by the hacker groups, so WA DC  can’t blame this on Russia, so, let’s blame North Korea.

    But, Nobody in the WA DC U.S. Government knows who been hacking?

    So we are left with the WA DC GUESSTIMATES

    Question everybody about everything….. Ask who? what? when? where? and why?

    and how?

    How many people and countries have been infected globally?

    How many people and businesses paid the ransom?

    How the ransom was paid?

    Good luck getting answers from  WA DC …

    WA DC appointed agencies and politicians in congress won’t, even if they know, unmask and identify the leakers and hackers in their own house,

    You know… It’s a matter of National security.

     READ THE THESIS:  “A Disaster of the First Magnitude”

    Winston Churchill

    “A Disaster of the First Magnitude”

    THESIS:   Churchill attacks the Munich agreement as a failure of the Western powers to prevent the Nazi power from gaining momentum when it had the chance and has therefore jeopardized the peace they were trying to maintain.

    • Winston Churchill (1874-1965) delivers a speech on October 5, 1938 in the House of Commons attacking the Munich agreement and British policy toward Nazi Germany
    • Churchill begins by stating they have faced defeat in the Munich agreement and the Czechs would of even been better off with the Western powers that deserted them.
    • He continues that if a better relationship with Russia had been pursued and early action had been taken then the disastrous state at hand would not have happen.
    • Also the peace efforts and forces against Hitler in Germany would have been able to gain strength if early action had been taken.
    • Church now describes the politically humiliated and economically mutilated Czechoslovakia, whose banks, railway agreements, and industries are all disrupted.
    • Churchill seals the fate of Czechoslovakia by predicting it will be absorbed by the Nazis in despair or revenge
    • He now addresses Britain’s previous position of power when they had the ability to stop Germany from rearming and gaining momentum but they are now faced with what they could have prevented.
    • Churchill finishes by explaining the danger that Britain and France now face against the Nazi power with France’s allies lost and both countries waiting too long to rearm or take action.
    • Churchill states that the British people must know the deficiency of and neglect of the government and the consequences they will now face.

    Blog: National Security Council leakers worried Trump might arrest them

    By Ed Straker

    If you’re a left-leaning member of the National Security Council and you’re unhappy with the duly elected president, what do you do?  Why, leak details of classified discussions and pending operations to the media, of course!

    In a N.Y. Times article, which itself is based on NSC leaks, leakers try to portray the NSC in chaos, but in the process of attempting to do so, they reveal the scope of their disloyalty.

    These are chaotic and anxious days inside the National Security Council, the traditional center of management for a president’s dealings with an uncertain world. Some staff members have turned to encrypted communications to talk with their colleagues, after hearing that Mr. Trump’s top advisers are considering an “insider threat” program that could result in monitoring cellphones and emails for leaks.

    Now, why would NSC staffers talking with their colleagues, presumably about affairs of state, feel the need to encrypt their conversations from the man they work for?  I think the implication is clear – that these conversations are about undermining and leaking information to harm the Trump administration.

    Nervous staff members recently met late at night at a bar a few blocks from the White House and talked about purging their social media accounts of any suggestion of anti-Trump sentiments.

    Why would they need to do that?  Past anti-Trump sentiments are not against the law.  But leaking classified information is.  I think these leakers are trying to keep a lower profile to avoid being caught.

    Last week, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis was exploring whether the Navy could intercept and board an Iranian ship to look for contraband weapons possibly headed to Houthi fighters in Yemen.

    White House officials said that [the operation was cancelled]… because news of the impending operation leaked, a threat to security that has helped fuel the move for the insider threat program.

    This is leakers in action.  But instead of writing an article about their illegality, this is only mentioned in passing, as part of the Times’ main interest in portraying the NSC as being in chaos.  What amazes me is how the Times doesn’t seem to think revealing bureaucrats leaking classified information is even a problem; the paper is are so disconnected from reality that its writers think anything, including disregarding national security laws, is justified, all in the pursuit of Trump.

    [Some NSC staffers have left but] Many of those who remain, who see themselves as apolitical civil servants, have been disturbed by displays of overt partisanship. At an all-hands meeting about two weeks into the new administration, Ms. McFarland told the group it needed to “make America great again,” numerous staff members who were there said. New Trump appointees are carrying coffee mugs with that Trump campaign slogan into meetings with foreign counterparts, one staff member said.

    Why is it partisan to have a mug featuring the slogan of the president…in his own White House?  When Obama was president, do you think staff avoided pro-Obama slogans?  I’m sure they didn’t.  These people are just appalled to be confronted with direct evidence that Trump is their president.  It shows that they don’t have either the temperament or the loyalty to do their jobs.

  • Violating Private Property Rights

    THERE’S NO CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT TO TRESPASS ON PRIVATE LANDS.

    Federal judge dismisses challenge to Wyoming trespassing law

    “The ends, no matter how critical or important to a public concern, do not justify the means, violating private property rights,” U.S. District Judge Scott Skavdahl wrote….

    By BEN NEARY Associated Press Updated Jul 7, 2016

    CHEYENNE — A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit from groups that challenged Wyoming laws prohibiting trespassing on private lands to collect data.

    Groups including the Western Watersheds Project, the Natural Resources Defense Council and the National Press Photographers Association sued Wyoming last year.

    The groups claimed state laws prohibiting trespassing to collect data were unconstitutional. The groups said the laws, which allowed both civil penalties and criminal prosecution, would block people from informing government regulators about such things as violations of water quality rules and illegal treatment of animals.

    U.S. District Judge Scott Skavdahl of Casper dismissed the groups’ lawsuit Wednesday, ruling there’s no constitutional right to trespass on private lands.

    “The ends, no matter how critical or important to a public concern, do not justify the means, violating private property rights,” Skavdahl wrote.

    Skavdahl last winter expressed concerns about earlier versions of the laws, which the Wyoming Legislature had passed early last year. The earlier versions sought to prohibit collection of data on “open lands,” a term Skavdahl said could be stretched to cover more than just private property.

    In response to Skavdahl’s criticism, the Wyoming Legislature earlier this year revised the laws to specify they only applied to trespassing to collect data on private lands.

    Gov. Matt Mead on Thursday said he was pleased with Skavdahl’s dismissal of the groups’ lawsuit.

    “There has been a lot of misinformation about the intent of this law,” Mead said. “The judge’s ruling affirms that the issue at the heart of the matter is preserving private property rights — a fundamental right in our country.”

    David Muraskin, a lawyer representing Western Watersheds and the National Press Photographers Association, said Thursday that his clients are disappointed with Skavdahl’s ruling and are considering whether to appeal.

    Oct 21, 2014 – This is the PRESUMED law of the LAND in WA STATE. Goggle it for … This is PRESUMED TO BE CONSTITUTIONAL BY THE AG. You live in …

    Presumed to be Constitutional?

    This is WA State Law RCW 77.12.154

    These “STATE  EMPLOYEES” may enter upon “ANY LAND” or waters and remain there while performing their duties without liability for trespass.

    ——————————————————————————————-

    The US Government has taken the position that they can do anything that they want, where ever they want whenever they want. Remember the Olympic Peninsula Electronic Warfare Project? And, they got away with it until “We the People” demanded Due Process.

    ——————————————————————————————–

    Who Knew? About this is WA State Law RCW 77.12.154

    It took me two months, with the help of an attorney,  to find this  WA State Law, it was buried under the  “Right of entry”  Aircraft operated by department.

    —————————————————————————————————-

    When I told people about the law, they wouldn’t believe me. They said

    They can’t do that on my “PRIVATE PROPERTY” without my permission, without probable cause, without a search warrant.

     —————————————————————————————–

     You want to bet the government can’t do it on your private property?

    I have the documentation of hundreds of these incidences.

    In fact it is documented that FROM APRIL 21, 2010   TO FEB. 5, 2011 WDFW did knowingly trespass on every piece of private property AROUND LAKE SUTHERLAND, And on every piece of private property from Lake Sutherland down and on both sides of Indian Creek to the Elwha River.

     Indeed, They have been doing it and they are going to keep doing it, and keep doing  it until “We the People” demanded Constitutional Due Process.

    “The two enemies of the people are criminals and government, so let us tie the second down with the chains of the Constitution so the second will not become the legalized version of the first.”

  • Ties That Bind Farmers and Ranchers

    Ties That Bind Farmers and Ranchers

    Quite regularly, someone seems to say to me “Oh but doesn’t that farm and all those animals really tie you down?”

    Why yes, yes they do.

    They tie me to starting my day when the sun rises and ending it well after the sun sets…but it means I always get to see them both.

    They tie me to the rhythm of the seasons…the might of the winter blizzard, the first spring breeze carrying the scent of rain, the towering glory of a summer thunderhead and the fall of leaves from the poplar trees.

    They tie me to concentrating on the chores that need to be done right now…not the regrets of yesterday nor the worries for tomorrow.

    THIS FARM AND ALL THESE ANIMALS KEEP ME TIED DOWN TO EARTH WHEN THE REST OF THE UNIVERSE TRIES TO FLIP ME UPSIDE DOWN.

    And so I would much rather be tied down here than set adrift in the tumultuous sea I see so many others in. I find this mooring rather to my liking.

    ———————————————————————————

    We are American citizens, we are private property owners, we are the stewards of our pristine forest land, the managers and laborers of our family farms (that included public grazing land)  it is our heritage, it is who we are and what we do, it is our way of life, it is our source of employment and income, it provides our shelter, the roof over our heads, food on our tables and heat from our hearth,

    INDEED IT HAS BEEN  THE  LOT OF OUR LIVES FOR MANY GENERATIONS OF AMERICAN FAMILIES.

    So I saw that there is nothing better for a person than to enjoy their work, because that is their lot That each of them may eat and drink, and find satisfaction in all their toil

    I know that there is nothing better for people than to be happy and to do good while they live

    Over the last few weeks, men who I consider true patriots, took control of a wildlife refuge in eastern Oregon, THIS WAS TO PROTEST THE ILLEGAL, UNCONSTITUTIONAL LAND GRABS BY THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT THROUGH THE BLM (BUREAU OF LAND MANAGEMENT), they did so in a peaceful manner, without threats or violence, an unmanned facility with doors left unlocked, vehicles with key’s in the ignitions.

    THE BUREAU OF LAND MANAGEMENT has announced the formation of new division of Security, Protection and Intelligence.  The new division is being created months after Ammon Bundy led dozens of armed anti-federal-lands activists in seizing the unoccupied Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Oregon. It’s unclear to what extent the new BLM law enforcement post is connected to the Malheur incident or to the general rise in anti-federal-lands activity in the rural West.

    This new department will operate independently of the already existing BLM Department of Law Enforcement and Protection under Director Salvatore Lauro,

     IT WILL ALSO OPERATE INDEPENDENT OF THE DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIORS (BLM’S MOTHER AGENCY)

     according to James Gallagher Director of Intelligence for the Department of Interior. In fact it is quite unclear as to who will have oversight over this new department or who authorized it’s creation. In calls to BLM public affairs officers they were unaware of the creation of the new division.

    FEMA Federal Emergency Management Agency as an independent agency (1979–2003)

    FEMA WAS ESTABLISHED UNDER THE 1978 REORGANIZATION PLAN NO. 3, AND ACTIVATED APRIL 1, 1979, BY PRESIDENT JIMMY CARTER IN HIS EXECUTIVE ORDER 12127.

    In July, Carter signed Executive Order 12148 shifting disaster relief efforts to the new federal-level agency. Federal Emergency Management Agency FEMA absorbed the Federal Insurance Administration, the National Fire Prevention and Control Administration, the National Weather Service Community Preparedness Program, the Federal Preparedness Agency of the General Services Administration and the Federal Disaster Assistance Administration activities from HUD.

    FEMA WAS ALSO GIVEN THE RESPONSIBILITY FOR OVERSEEING THE NATION’S CIVIL DEFENSE, A FUNCTION WHICH HAD PREVIOUSLY BEEN PERFORMED BY THE DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE’S DEFENSE CIVIL PREPAREDNESS AGENCY.

    In 1993, President Bill Clinton appointed James Lee Witt as FEMA Director.

    In 1996, the agency was elevated to cabinet rank. This was not continued by President George W. Bush. Witt initiated reforms that would help to streamline the disaster recovery and mitigation process.

    The end of the Cold War also allowed the agency’s resources to be turned away from civil defense to natural disaster preparedness.

    After Federal Emergency Management Agency FEMA’s creation through reorganization and executive orders, Congress continued to expand Federal Emergency Management Agency FEMA’s authority by assigning responsibilities to it.

     Federal Emergency Management Agency FEMA was absorbed into DHS effective March 1, 2003. As a result, FEMA became part of the Emergency Preparedness and Response Directorate of Department of Homeland Security,

    Additionally, upon incorporation into Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Federal Emergency Management Agency FEMA was legally dissolved and a new Emergency Preparedness and Response Directorate was established in DHS to replace it.

    Following enactment of the Post Katrina Emergency Management Reform Act of 2006

    FEMA WAS REESTABLISHED AS AN ENTITY WITHIN DHS, ON MARCH 31, 2007.

    EMPLOYING MORE THAN 2,600 FULL-TIME EMPLOYEES.

    IT BECAME THE FEDERAL EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT AGENCY AGAIN ON MARCH 31, 2007, but remained in DHS.

    President Bush appointed Michael D. Brown as FEMA’s director in January 2003.

    BROWN WARNED IN SEPTEMBER 2003

     THAT FEMA’S ABSORPTION INTO DHS WOULD MAKE A MOCKERY OF FEMA’S NEW MOTTO, “A NATION PREPARED”, AND WOULD “FUNDAMENTALLY SEVER FEMA FROM ITS CORE FUNCTIONS”, “SHATTER AGENCY MORALE” AND “BREAK LONGSTANDING, EFFECTIVE AND TESTED RELATIONSHIPS WITH STATES AND FIRST RESPONDER STAKEHOLDERS”.

    THE INEVITABLE RESULT OF THE REORGANIZATION OF 2003, WARNED BROWN, WOULD BE “AN INEFFECTIVE AND UNCOORDINATED RESPONSE” TO A TERRORIST ATTACK OR A NATURAL DISASTER.

    ————————————————————————————

    Hurricane Katrina in 2005 demonstrated that the vision of further unification of functions and another reorganization could not address the problems FEMA had previously faced. The “Final Report of the Select Bipartisan Committee to Investigate the Preparation for and Response to Hurricane Katrina”, released February 15, 2006, by the U.S. Government Printing Office, revealed that federal funding to states for “all hazards” disaster preparedness needs was not awarded unless the local agencies made the purposes for the funding a “just terrorism” function.

    Emergency management professionals testified that funds for preparedness for natural hazards was given less priority than preparations for counter terrorism measures. Testimony also expressed the opinion that the mission to mitigate vulnerability and prepare for natural hazard disasters before they occurred had been separated from disaster preparedness functions, making the nation more vulnerable to known hazards, like hurricanes.

    Organization

    During the debate of the Homeland Security Act of 2002, some called for FEMA to remain as an independent agency. Later, following the failed response to Hurricane Katrina, CRITICS CALLED FOR FEMA TO BE REMOVED FROM THE DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY.

    TODAY FEMA EXISTS AS A MAJOR AGENCY OF THE DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY. THE ADMINISTRATOR FOR FEDERAL EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT REPORTS DIRECTLY TO THE Secretary of Homeland Security.

    IN MARCH 2003, FEMA JOINED 22 OTHER FEDERAL AGENCIES, PROGRAMS AND OFFICES IN BECOMING THE DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY. The new department, headed by Secretary Tom Ridge, brought a coordinated approach to national security from emergencies and disasters – both natural and man-made.

    FEMA manages the National Flood Insurance Program. Other programs FEMA previously administered have since been internalized or shifted under direct DHS control.

    FEMA is also home to the National Continuity Programs Directorate (formerly the Office of National Security Coordination). ONSC was responsible for developing, exercising, and validating agency wide continuity of operations and continuity of government plans as well as overseeing and maintaining continuity readiness including the Mount Weather Emergency Operations Center. ONSC also coordinated the continuity efforts of other Federal Executive Agencies.

    FEMA began administering the Center for Domestic Preparedness in 2007.

    1912 REPUBLICAN CONVENTION

    Return of the Rough Rider

    William Howard Taft and Theodore Roosevelt had once been friends.

     BUT WHEN THE REPUBLICAN PARTY MET IN CHICAGO TO CHOOSE ITS PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE IN JUNE 1912,

     THE NOMINATION BATTLE BETWEEN THE TWO MEN WAS BRUTAL, PERSONAL

    AND ULTIMATELY FATAL TO THE PARTY’S CHANCES FOR VICTORY IN NOVEMBER.

    TAFT DECLARED ROOSEVELT TO BE “THE GREATEST MENACE TO OUR INSTITUTIONS THAT WE HAVE HAD IN A LONG TIME.”

    ROOSEVELT SAW TAFT AS THE AGENT OF “THE FORCES OF REACTION AND OF POLITICAL CROOKEDNESS.

    ” THE RESULTING FLOOR FIGHT IN THE APTLY NAMED CHICAGO COLISEUM LIVED UP TO THE PREDICTION OF THE IRISH-AMERICAN HUMORIST FINLEY PETER DUNNE

     THAT THE 1912 CONVENTION WOULD BE “A COMBYNATION IV TH’ CHICAGO FIRE, SAINT BARTHOLOMEW’S MASSACREE, THE BATTLE IV TH’ BOYNE, TH’ LIFE IV JESSE JAMES, AN’ TH’ NIGHT IV TH’ BIG WIND.”

    THE CONVENTION WAS NOT ARMAGEDDON, BUT TO OBSERVERS IT SEEMED A CLOSE SECOND. SHOUTS OF “LIAR” AND CRIES OF “STEAMROLLER” PUNCTUATED THE PROCEEDINGS.

    ———————————————————————————-

    TO THIS DAY, MANY REMAIN SHOCKED AT THE AUDACIOUS MACHINATIONS OF PARTY OFFICIALS TO SECURE THE NOMINATION FOR TAFT

    —————————————————————————————-


    For years, the tensions within the GRAND OLD PARTY had been building over the issue of government regulation. During his presidency, Roosevelt had advocated a “Square Deal” between capital and labor in American society. By the time he left the White House in March 1909, Roosevelt believed that the federal government must do more to supervise large corporations, improve the lot of women and children who worked long hours for low wages in industry, and conserve natural resources. “When I say that I am for the square deal, I mean not merely that I stand for fair play under the present rules of the game, but that I stand for having those rules changed so as to work for a more substantial equality of opportunity and of reward for equally good service,” he said in August 1910. Roosevelt was especially critical of the state and federal courts for overturning reform legislation as unconstitutional, and he said that such decisions were “fundamentally hostile to every species of real popular government.”

    Roosevelt’s burgeoning crusade for more active government reflected his loss of faith in William Howard Taft, whom the former Rough Rider had chosen as his successor. As president, Taft had sided with the conservative wing of the party, which had opposed Roosevelt’s reforms at every turn. For his part, Taft believed Roosevelt had stretched the power of the executive branch too far. As a lawyer and former federal judge, Taft had nothing but disdain for his predecessor’s jaundiced view of the judiciary. “The regret which he certainly expressed that the courts had the power to set aside statutes,” wrote the president, “was an attack upon our system at the very point where I think it is the strongest.”

    Tensions deepened in 1912, when Roosevelt began ADVOCATING THE RECALL OF JUDICIAL DECISIONS THROUGH POPULAR VOTE. With the courts tamed as an enemy to reform, ROOSEVELT THEN WOULD PRESS FORWARD “TO SEE THAT THE WAGE-WORKER, THE SMALL PRODUCER, THE ORDINARY CONSUMER, SHALL GET THEIR FAIR SHARE OF THE BENEFIT OF BUSINESS PROSPERITY.” To enact his program, Roosevelt signaled that he would accept another term as president and seek the nomination of the Republican Party.

    THESE AMBITIONS REVEALED, TAFT AND HIS FELLOW CONSERVATIVES DEEMED ROOSEVELT A DANGEROUS RADICAL. ONCE IN POWER FOR A THIRD TERM, THEY SAID, ROOSEVELT WOULD BE A PERPETUAL CHIEF EXECUTIVE. ROOSEVELT HAD BECOME THE MOST DANGEROUS MAN IN AMERICAN HISTORY, SAID TAFT, “BECAUSE OF HIS HOLD UPON THE LESS INTELLIGENT VOTERS AND THE DISCONTENTED.” THE SOCIAL JUSTICE THAT ROOSEVELT SOUGHT INVOLVED, IN TAFT’S OPINION, “A FORCED DIVISION OF PROPERTY, AND THAT MEANS SOCIALISM.”

    Taft dominated the Republican Party machinery in many states, but a few state primaries gave the voters a chance to express themselves. The president and his former friend took to the hustings, and across the country in the spring of 1912 the campaign rhetoric escalated.

    Roosevelt described Taft as a “puzzlewit,”

    while the president labeled Roosevelt a “honeyfugler.”

     Driven to distraction under Roosevelt’s attacks, Taft said in Massachusetts, “I was a man of straw; but I have been a man of straw long enough; every man who has blood in his body and who has been misrepresented as I have is forced to fight.”

     A delighted Roosevelt supporter commented that “Taft certainly made a great mistake when he began to ‘fight back.’ He has too big a paunch to have much of a punch, while a free-for-all, slap-bang, kick-him-in-the-belly, is just nuts for the chief.”

    ROOSEVELT WON ALL THE REPUBLICAN PRIMARIES AGAINST TAFT EXCEPT IN MASSACHUSETTS.

    TAFT DOMINATED THE CAUCUSES THAT SENT DELEGATES TO THE STATE CONVENTIONS.

    WHEN THE VOTING WAS DONE, NEITHER MAN HAD THE 540 DELEGATES NEEDED TO WIN.

    ROOSEVELT HAD 411,

     TAFT HAD 367 AND MINOR CANDIDATES HAD 46,

     LEAVING 254 UP FOR GRABS. THE REPUBLICAN NATIONAL COMMITTEE, DOMINATED BY THE TAFT FORCES,

     AWARDED 235 DELEGATES TO THE PRESIDENT AND 19 TO ROOSEVELT, THEREBY ENSURING TAFT’S RENOMINATION.

     ROOSEVELT BELIEVED HIMSELF ENTITLED TO 72 DELEGATES FROM ARIZONA, CALIFORNIA, TEXAS AND WASHINGTON THAT HAD BEEN GIVEN TO TAFT.

    Firm in his conviction that the nomination was being stolen from him,

    Roosevelt decided to break the precedent that kept the candidates away from the national convention and lead his forces to CHICAGO in person.

     The night before the proceedings Roosevelt told cheering supporters that there was “a great moral issue” at stake and he should have “sixty to eighty lawfully elected delegates” added to his total.

     Otherwise, he said, the contested delegates should not vote.

    Roosevelt ended his speech declaring: “FEARLESS OF THE FUTURE; UNHEEDING OF OUR INDIVIDUAL FATES; WITH UNFLINCHING HEARTS AND UNDIMMED EYES; WE STAND AT ARMAGEDDON, AND WE BATTLE FOR THE LORD!”

    One pro-Taft observer said that “a tension pervaded the Coliseum breathing the general feeling that a parting of the ways was imminent.”

     William Allen White, the famous Kansas editor, looked down from the press tables “INTO THE HUMAN CALDRON THAT WAS BOILING ALL AROUND ME.”

    On the first day, the Roosevelt forces lost a test vote on the temporary chairman. Taft’s man, Elihu Root, prevailed.

     ROOSEVELT’S SUPPORTERS TRIED TO HAVE 72 OF THEIR DELEGATES SUBSTITUTED FOR TAFT PARTISANS ON THE LIST OF THOSE OFFICIALLY ALLOWED TO TAKE PART IN THE CONVENTION.

    WHEN THAT INITIATIVE FAILED, ROOSEVELT KNEW THAT HE COULD NOT WIN, AND HAD EARLIER REJECTED THE IDEA OF A COMPROMISE THIRD CANDIDATE.

    “I’LL NAME THE COMPROMISE CANDIDATE. HE’LL BE ME. I’LL NAME THE COMPROMISE PLATFORM. IT WILL BE OUR PLATFORM.

    “WITH THAT, HE BOLTED FROM THE PARTY AND INSTRUCTED HIS DELEGATES NOT TO TAKE PART IN THE VOTING;

    TAFT EASILY WON ON THE FIRST BALLOT.

     ROOSEVELT, MEANWHILE, SAID HE WAS GOING “TO NOMINATE FOR THE PRESIDENCY A PROGRESSIVE ON A PROGRESSIVE PLATFORM.”

    IN AUGUST, ROOSEVELT DID JUST THAT, RUNNING AS THE CANDIDATE OF THE PROGRESSIVE PARTY.

    BOTH HE AND TAFT LOST TO THE DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE, WOODROW WILSON, THAT NOVEMBER.

    YET, FOR REPUBLICANS WHO SUPPORTED TAFT, THE ELECTORAL DEFEAT WAS WORTH THE IDEOLOGICAL VICTORY.

     AS A REPUBLICAN OBSERVED DURING THE CAMPAIGN: “WE CAN’T ELECT TAFT & WE MUST DO ANYTHING TO ELECT WILSON SO AS TO DEFEAT ROOSEVELT.”

    NOW WE KNOW  IN FACT THAT OUR ESTABLISHMENT REPUBLICAN PARTY HAS BEEN CORRUPT  SINCE 1912 AND DECIDED  100 YEARS AGO TO IGNORE THE VOICE OF THE PEOPLE”

    ——————————————————————

    The press,  the News media , is therefore of the utmost importance in a representative democracy. EXCEPT WHEN THE MAJORITY (CNN AND FOX NEWS)  ARE IN COLLUSION WITH ANTI-TRUMP ESTABLISHMENT REPUBLICAN AND DEMOCRATIC PARTY

    Carlyle saw the press as instrumental to the birth and growth of democracy, spreading facts and opinions and sparking revolution against tyranny.

    In 1803, the year of the Louisiana Purchase, President Jefferson wrote a letter to William Henry Harrison, a future U.S. President who was then governor of the Indiana Territory, explaining what should be done with the Native Americans inhabiting the wild frontier.
    Jefferson went on to explain:

    “When they (the Indians) withdraw themselves to the culture of a small piece of land,
    they will perceive how useless to them are their extensive forests,
    and will be willing to pare them off from time to time in exchange for necessaries for their farms and families.
    To promote this disposition to exchange lands, which they have to spare and we want, for necessaries, which we have to spare and they want,

    BECAUSE WE OBSERVE THAT WHEN THESE DEBTS GET BEYOND WHAT THE INDIVIDUALS CAN PAY, THEY BECOME WILLING TO LOP THEM OFF BY A CESSION OF LANDS.”

    ——————————
    And if any Indians make trouble, Jefferson wrote, they would be driven out of their lands.
    “Should any tribe be foolhardy enough to take up the hatchet at any time,” he told Harrison,“the seizing the whole country of that tribe, and driving them across the Mississippi, as the only condition of peace,

    WOULD BE AN EXAMPLE TO OTHERS, AND A FURTHERANCE OF OUR FINAL CONSOLIDATION.”

    ———————————————
    This was the final solution for the Indians – a policy that would result in their being driven from their ancestral lands and shunted onto barren reservations.

    ————————————————————–
    IN 1807 JEFFERSON MADE THIS CLEAR FOUR YEARS LATER WHEN HE WROTE THAT IF THE INDIANS DID NOT COOPERATE, THE POLICY OF THE UNITED STATES WOULD BE “TO PURSUE INDIANS TO EXTERMINATION, or to drive them to new seats beyond our reach.”
    ————————————————————————-
    The following are direct quotes from State of the Union Addresses by nine U.S. Presidents. They show a consistent policy, from one administration to the next, to remove Native Americans from their ancestral lands.

    James Monroe
    First State of the Union Address
    December 12, 1817
    “The earth was given to mankind to support the greatest number of which it is capable, and no tribe or people have a right to withhold from the wants of others more than is necessary for their own support and comfort.”
    “In terminating Indian hostilities, as must soon be done…the emigration, which has heretofore been great, will probably increase, and the demand for land and the augmentation in its value be in like proportion.”

    ——————————-
    Sixth State of the Union Address
    Dec. 3, 1822
    “It is essential to the growth and prosperity of the (Florida) Territory, as well as to the interests of the Union, that those Indians should be removed, by special compact with them, to some other position or concentration within narrower limits.”

    ———————————–
    Eighth State of the Union Address
