Juice For A Natural Energy Boost

juice

I constantly struggle with having enough energy to get everything done. Instead of loading myself up with coffee all day, I am taking a healthier approach and started giving my body what it really needs – natural vitamins and nutrients.

Juicing is a great way to add essential nutrients to the body and in return, I get a much needed boost of energy. My kids have lovingly dubbed this juice the “Green Drop Drink” after one of their favorite movies. If you don’t have any kale or spinach, you can add the remaining ingredients and make a delicious yellow version of this beverage.

Go for the organic fruits and vegetables when juicing as it helps your body detoxify more efficiently. As well, this is a great juice to help detox from the holidays or from heavy metals and environment pollutants, and also gives you an added energy boost thanks to the ginger. Here are some other ways your health benefits from this juice:

  • Weight loss
  • Lowers blood pressure and cholesterol
  • Colon cancer prevention
  • Increased blood circulation
  • Cancer prevention
  • Bone protection
  • Improved complexion

This juice is very versatile, so feel free to adjust the amount of vegetables and fruits to your liking. I make a large pitcher of this juice to enjoy throughout the day and also to give to my kids.

Technology And The Future Of Jobs

destroying_jobs__chart

Quite a stir occurred with the academic presentation, How Technology Is Destroying Jobs, by Brynjolfsson, a professor at the MIT Sloan School of Management, and his collaborator and coauthor Andrew McAfee. Both “have been arguing for the last few years that impressive advances in computer technology—from improved industrial robotics to automated translation services—are largely behind the sluggish employment growth of the last 10 to 15 years. Even more ominous for workers, the MIT academics foresee dismal prospects for many types of jobs as these powerful new technologies are increasingly adopted not only in manufacturing, clerical, and retail work but in professions such as law, financial services, education, and medicine.”

“Perhaps the most damning piece of evidence, according to Brynjolfsson, is a chart that only an economist could love. In economics, productivity—the amount of economic value created for a given unit of input, such as an hour of labor—is a crucial indicator of growth and wealth creation. It is a measure of progress. On the chart Brynjolfsson likes to show, separate lines represent productivity and total employment in the United States. For years after World War II, the two lines closely tracked each other, with increases in jobs corresponding to increases in productivity. The pattern is clear: as businesses generated more value from their workers, the country as a whole became richer, which fueled more economic activity and created even more jobs. Then, beginning in 2000, the lines diverge; productivity continues to rise robustly, but employment suddenly wilts. By 2011, a significant gap appears between the two lines, showing economic growth with no parallel increase in job creation. Brynjolfsson and McAfee call it the “great decoupling.” And Brynjolfsson says he is confident that technology is behind both the healthy growth in productivity and the weak growth in jobs.”

Building upon this study, MSM provides a three part series on, Loss of middle-class jobs compounded by tech advances. The following admission by the technological behemoth should give pause for future generations.

“Most of the jobs will never return, and millions more are likely to vanish as well, say experts who study the labor market. What’s more, these jobs aren’t just being lost to China and other developing countries, and they aren’t just factory work. Increasingly, jobs are disappearing in the service sector, home to two-thirds of all workers.

The global economy is being reshaped by machines that generate and analyze vast amounts of data; by devices such as smartphones and tablet computers that let people work just about anywhere, even when they’re on the move; by smarter, nimbler robots; and by services that let businesses rent computing power when they need it, instead of installing expensive equipment and hiring IT staffs to run it.”

This reality is all around us, but the full impact yet appreciated, is that the cloud of computing is not increasing business employment for the main street economy. For more bad news look at the results from the Associated Press analysis of employment data from 20 countries in, Can smart machines take your job? Middle class jobs increasingly being replaced by technology, which found that “almost all the jobs disappearing are in industries that pay middle-class wages, ranging from $38,000 to $68,000. Jobs that form the backbone of the middle class in developed countries in Europe, North America and Asia.”

“In the United States, half of the 7.5 million jobs lost during the Great Recession paid middle-class wages, and the numbers are even more grim in the 17 European countries that use the euro as their currency. A total of 7.6 million midpay jobs disappeared in those countries from January 2008 through last June.”

The article then goes on to cite that more information now crosses the Internet every second than the entire Internet stored 20 years ago. Other examples note that:

  • The British-Australian mining giant Rio Tinto announced plans last year to invest $518 million in the world’s first long-haul, heavy-duty driverless train system at its Pilbara iron ore mines in Western Australia.
  • Dirk Vander Kooij’s furniture-making company in the Netherlands needs only a skeleton crew — four people. The hard work at the Eindhoven-based company is carried out by an old industrial robot that Vander Kooij fashioned into a 3D printer.

Soon to come are pilotless airliners joining the several Japanese rail lines already run by themselves. Add the smart utility meter deployment and soon the employee reader, banished to a wax museum, becomes just another sign of “so called” progress.

Missing in all this corporate excitement for slashing payroll is the indisputable fact that the general standard of living is dropping like a rock for the average family. Couple this deadly trend with the unnerving prospects forecasted by Bob Lord in, Our First Trillionaire: Only a Matter of Time.

“The unavoidable result: Wealth at the top is growing at a faster rate than aggregate wealth. That’s where the arithmetic comes in to play. If the wealth of one group within a nation grows at a faster rate than the nation’s aggregate wealth, that group’s share of the aggregate wealth must increase over time. That’s a mathematical certainty. And the level of subsequent wealth concentration has no limit.”

Technological development coupled with favorable political treatment is regularly the formula for massive accumulation of fortune. However, the horrendous social distortions that inexorably follows such distortions in income, much less the fact that the disappearance in living wage employment of the masses cannot be ignored without fundamental political upheaval.

Once innovated technology of a Henry Ford raised the living standards and was a benefit for society. Today’s objective is to remove or eliminate the middle class as the gap in meaningful employment widens. Added leisure time has no significance if spent on playing games on an IPAD, while living off welfare government programs.

Brynjolfsson and McAfee’s breakdown is a chilling look at a bleak future and the goodbye kiss to a populist beneficial economy.

25 Must Have Items For Your Survival Hygiene Kit

hiking

The Oxford English Dictionary defines hygiene as:

“Conditions or practices conducive to maintaining health and preventing disease, especially through cleanliness.”

During or following a disruptive event, life will be tough enough without having to worry about maintaining health and preventing disease.  Why then, do I find the topic of a survival hygiene kit taking a backseat to articles about food, water, bug-out bags and life in the wilderness?

Today I plan to change that by sharing my own list of must have items to keep me clean, healthy, and looking good. And lest you question the “looking good” part, rest assured I plan to explain why that is important when faced with a survival situation.

Here is my list, in no particular order.

Best Practices:  25 Items to Include in Your Survival Hygiene Kit

  1. Soap (I prefer liquid castile soap)
  2. Toothpaste
  3. Toothbrush
  4. Razor plus some old denim for stropping
  5. Dental Floss
  6. Deodorant
  7. Shampoo
  8. Conditioner
  9. Sun Shower also called a Solar Shower (I have this one)
  10. Baking Soda (can be used as a shampoo substitute or as a toothpaste 50/50 with salt)
  11. Epsom Salt
  12. Laundry Soap (I use the DIY version)
  13. Potty Bucket (5 gallon bucket with seat)
  14. Kitty Litter or other organic material to use with the potty bucket
  15. Toilet Paper
  16. Mobile Washer
  17. Microfiber cloths to use for washing
  18. Cotton tea towels to use for drying (these are amazing and not too small for full-body use)
  19. Hair cutting scissors
  20. Nail Clippers
  21. Feminine supplies (if applicable; read more here)
  22. Diapers (if applicable)
  23. Comb
  24. Hand Mirror
  25. Lipstick (optional)

Why Looking Good Matters

To this day, I still get up each morning and go through the routine of dressing nicely, wearing makeup, and styling my hair (which is no easy task).  Being a prepper did not change that.  Furthermore, I make no apologies for having a desire to look good and for carrying a tube of lipstick in my my pockets and my packs right alongside a pocket-sized flashlight.

In my opinion, being able to face the world looking good increases confidence and self-esteem.  This means you will attack your daily chores with a bit more gusto and enthusiasm.  I believe this article on Natural News says is best:

By looking good, you get to boost your confidence. And when you look good, you know that people’s eyes are on you and that you have their attention. You’ll feel good about yourself and with that feeling, you are given the urge to do anything you want, to reach for your dreams and whatever goals you have in life. Once you get that confidence, you also start to be happy inside. Yes. Confidence is happiness.

The Final Word

Call it my upbringing or call it common sense.  Whatever the reason, I am obsessed with personal grooming and hygiene.  To further that thought, it is my opinion that maintaining good hygiene and good grooming should be part of a prepper’s overall strategy.

If you have not considered putting together a survival hygiene kit, consider it now.  It is likely that you already have spares of many of these items already.  Simply gather them together in one spot, and if you are ever forced to evacuate, your Survival Hygiene Kit will be ready to grab and go, along with the rest of of your emergency must-have items.

Enjoy your next adventure through common sense and thoughtful preparation!

Is Eating Wheat At The Root Of Your Depression?

wheat_depression

How ironic it would be for the most prized food of Western culture — wheat — to be at the root of the global epidemic of depression?

The powerful neurotoxic and psychoactive properties of wheat have only recently come to light. For many decades the near exclusive focus was on gluten’s life-altering gastrointestinal adverse effects – once considered exceedingly rare and limited to those with celiac disease.  Only now are we beginning to realize that this “king of grains” is truly a debilitating force in the Western diet that we must go to great lengths to avoid.

Beyond the already 200+ adverse health effects identified in the biomedical literature on this globally popular food’s inherent health damaging properties, a solid body of research also exists linking wheat to schizophrenia, acute bouts of mania, autism, cerebellar ataxia, reduced blood flow to the brain, autoimmune neurological issues, and many other neurotoxic reactions. For an exhaustive analysis of the neurotoxicity of wheat visit our Wheat Toxicity page which contains 24 biomedical citations on wheat’s brain- and nerve-damaging properties.

Recently, the holistic psychiatrist Dr. Kelly Brogan, MD, reported on the relationship between gluten consumption and depression in non-celiac disease subjects on her cutting-edge website, commenting on a study published in the journal Alimentary Pharmacology and Therapeutics titled, “Randomised clinical trial: gluten may cause depression in subjects with non-coeliac gluten sensitivity – an exploratory clinical study,” wherein it was clearly revealed that gluten consumption significantly increases the risk of depression.

The doubled-blind cross over study consisted of twenty-two subjects (24-62 years, five male) with irritable bowel syndrome who tested negative for celiac disease and whose condition was symptomatically controlled on a gluten free diet.

The participants randomly received one of three dietary challenges for 3 days, followed by a minimum 3-day washout before crossing over to the next diet. Their gluten free diet was challenged with either gluten (16 g/day), whey (16 g/day) or not supplemented at all (placebo).  The study end-points included mental state as assessed by the Spielberger State Trait Personality Inventory (STPI), cortisol secretion and gastrointestinal symptoms.

The results of the intervention were reported as follows:

Gluten ingestion was associated with higher overall STPI state depression scores compared to placebo [M = 2.03, 95% CI (0.55-3.51), P = 0.010] but not whey [M = 1.48, 95% CI (-0.14 to 3.10), P = 0.07]. No differences were found for other STPI state indices or for any STPI trait measures. No difference in cortisol secretion was identified between challenges. Gastrointestinal symptoms were induced similarly across all dietary challenges.”

The study concluded:

Short-term exposure to gluten specifically induced current feelings of depression with no effect on other indices or on emotional disposition. Gluten-specific induction of gastrointestinal symptoms was not identified. Such findings might explain why patients with non-coeliac gluten sensitivity feel better on a gluten-free diet despite the continuation of gastrointestinal symptoms.”

Clearly this study indicates that those who consume wheat can expect to suffer from depressive side effects. And why should we be surprised? Wheat is consumed worldwide at the rate of millions of tons. Concurrently, according to the World Health Organization, depression is a major cause of morbidity worldwide.[i] A 2012 Lancet study found that it affects approximately 298 million people as of 2010 (4.3% of the global population).[ii] Diet-induced depression, unfortunately, isn’t really on the map of most clinicians. Antidepressant drugs dominate the treatment landscape. According to an article in the theguardian.com, in the US alone, 23.3 million used antidepressant drugs in 2010 – many of which have as a side effect suicidal ideation and a laundry list of serious, if not also life-threatening psychiatric consequences.

What if diet were both the cause and the solution for depression in a great percentage of these drug users?

What if simply declining the consumption of wheat products leads to significant improvement in their “disease”?  Interestingly, a 2012 study published in the journal of Psychosomatic Research titled, “Reduced quality of life in coeliac disease is more strongly associated with depression than gastrointestinal symptoms,” found that even in classical celiac disease patients, it was not the bloating, diarrhea and multitudinous gastrointestinal problems which caused the most suffering, rather, it was their declining quality of life – particularly depression– that they identified to be causing most of their suffering.

Wheat’s depressive properties need to be recognized as a significant risk of wheat consumption, both in celiac and non-celiac populations alike – yes, that means everyone.  As Dr. David Perlmutter, author of the NY Times #1 best-selling book Grain Brain, said: “Wheat is the tobacco of our generation.” When will we wake up, put down the toast, bagel or slice of pizza, and begin to live happier, more productive lives? It may be as simple as giving it a try and going wheat-free to see — through direct experience — if it produces positive changes.

What Are Fats? Are All Dietary Fats Bad?

foods high in fat

Fats are a highly varied macronutrient group and they’re present in both animal and plant-derived foods. At 9 calories per gram, fat is the most dense source of calories required by the human body.[1] However, not all fats are created equally and it’s crucial to pay attention to which types of fat you include in your diet.[2] Some fats are healthy, some are fairly neutral, while others are actively detrimental to your health.

The War on Fat began in the late 1980s and ushered in an era of high-sugar, high-carb, low-fat, and fat-free snack foods. You might remember the resurgence of the Atkins Diet and introduction of the Mediterranean Diet books from the late 1990s that finally made dietary fat socially-acceptable and medically-recommended again. The truth is that a diet that includes the right kind of fat is not just beneficial, but downright critical to your health.

What Fats Do in the Body

Fats perform a number of duties in your body, such as helping absorb certain micronutrients and keeping your skin and hair healthy.[3] The process of creating, storing, and using fat is how we keep energy in balance. Fats enable your body to absorb and hoard fat-soluble vitamins in the liver and fat tissue.[4] Vitamins A,D, K, and beta-carotene typically have an absorption rate of about 80%, while vitamin E is absorbed at a rate of about 20%.[5] In one study, vitamin D absorption increased simply by adding fat to the meal. When the fat content of the meal totaled 30% of the calorie count, the vitamin D3 absorption improved significantly.[6] Fat is responsible for setting off basic metabolic processes that regulate growth, immune function, and reproductive development. If you’re trying to limit fat intake, obtain no less than 6% of your calories from fat to keep these systems functioning properly.[4] At the other end of the spectrum, cap your fat intake at 20-35% of your total daily calories. Since fat contains more than twice the calories of protein or carbohydrates, excessive consumption can lead to weight gain.

Absorption and Storage of Fats

Most dietary fats are “triglycerides.” These are composed of 3 fatty acids hydrocarbon chains bonded to a glycerol backbone. During the digestive process, bile emulsifies, or breaks down, these triglycerides into their individual components in the small intestine for absorption into the body. From here, fatty acids are absorbed into the bloodstream via the liver, and either directed into cells for immediate use or sent to lipocytes (fat cells) for long-term storage in the form of fat droplets.[7]

Metabolism of Fat Reserves

fat-as-an-energy-source-300x200When your body taps into its energy reserves, the first reserves used are carbohydrates, which are stored in the form of branched chains of glycogen in the muscles and liver. Humans only store enough carbs to fuel about 20-30 minutes of vigorous activity.[3, 8] After that, your body switches its energy resource to fat reserves.[3]Lipases are the enzymes that break down our fat stores to release energy for our mitochondria to use. The metabolism of fat is aerobic (it requires oxygen molecules) and occurs in the mitochondria. The metabolism of carbohydrates is anaerobic (it does not require oxygen) to release energy.[6]

In addition to providing a calorie-dense source of energy storage, visceral fat protects organs in the abdominal cavity from damage. Subcutaneous fat helps regulate body temperature by insulating muscles.[4]

Types of Fat

There are two basic types of dietary fat for humans: essential and nonessential. Essential fatty acids cannot be produced by the human body—they need to be eaten. These fatty acids are known as omega-6 (linoleic acid) and omega-3 (alpha-linoleic) fatty acids. There are several subclassifications of these fats, like ALA and DHA, that are distinguished by their chemical structure. The body relies on essential fatty acids for blood clotting, neural development, and managing inflammation.[3]

Non-essential fatty acids are still important to the body, but can be produced internally given the proper resources. Saturated fat is not essential in a nutritional sense but is important for hormone regulation in the body.[9]

Whether a fat is saturated or unsaturated depends on the number of the hydrogen atoms bonded to the carbon chain that makes up the triglyceride. If a fatty acid is saturated, there are no double bonds between the carbon atoms. The fatty acid chain is fully saturated with hydrogen atoms. If there are double bonds between two carbons in the chain, the fatty acid is either monounsaturated or polyunsaturated depending on the number of double bonds in the chain. Saturated fats are solid at room temperature because these hydrocarbon chains are closer together. These straight chains can essentially stack together at the molecular level becoming more viscous. Mono- and polyunsaturated fats are twisted or kinked at their double carbon bonds, preventing the chains from packing closely together.[9]

All naturally occurring classifications of fats are composed of a mixture of polyunsaturated, monounsaturated, and saturated fatty acids. The physical state of any fat at room temperature is determined by which type of fatty acid is the most prevalent. In olive oil, the dominant fatty acid is monounsaturated, so it is liquid at room temperature. Butter is primarily made up of saturated fatty acids, so it is solid at room temperature.[9]

What Are Trans Fats?

Trans fats are the now notorious fats that have been skewered in the media for the last decade, much to the ire of processed food manufacturers. In July 2015, US officials announced they would be enacting nationwide ban on these dangerous fats that promote cardiovascular disease by raising LDL (bad) cholesterol and lowering HDL (good) cholesterol.[10] Trans fats are a product of hydrogenating the double-bonded carbon linkages in fatty acids so they become fully saturated with hydrogen atoms, turning these once healthy fats into saturated fats. Hydrogenation increases the shelf life, palatability, and texture of processed food at the high cost contributing to cardiovascular disease. Trans fats are also found in tiny amounts in meat and dairy[11], but the amount is negligible.[10]

Trans fats are being phased out the American food supply but, in the meantime, you should avoid these common foods that contain trans fats:trans-fats-foods-300x199

  • Coffee creamer
  • Crackers, cookies, cakes, frozen pies, and other baked goods
  • Fast food
  • Frozen pizza
  • Ready-to-use frosting
  • Refrigerated dough products (such as biscuits and cinnamon rolls)

Trans fats are structurally different from ordinary saturated fat. They should be completely eliminated from the diet for their disease-promoting properties.[11]

What Are Saturated Fats?

Saturated fats are largely found in animal products like meat and dairy, but there a few plant-based sources: palm kernel oil, coconut oil, and cocoa butter (chocolate fat). These fats are solid at room temperature[12] and should be avoided or strictly limited as they can raise blood cholesterol and increase the risk heart disease and stroke.[13]

As stated earlier, saturated fat raises LDL cholesterol and lowers HDL cholesterol. If you’re trying to prevent or slow the development of cardiovascular disease, it’s imperative to keep your total daily saturated fat calories to no more than 6%.[3]

Chocolate is unique in that most of its saturated fat comes from stearic acid, which is a fatty acid that actually reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease. If you do choose to include it in your diet, make sure the only fat in the ingredients is cocoa butter or stearic acid. Lower-quality chocolate usually includes milk fat or other saturated fats.[14]

What Are Unsaturated Fats?

Unsaturated fats are often described as healthy fats because they have the opposite effect of saturated fats. Unsaturated fats lower LDL cholesterol and raise HDL cholesterol.[15] Consumption of these fats can reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke, so make every effort to replace solid fats with oils. Unsaturated fats are concentrated in the oils naturally found in fish, nuts, seeds, and some fatty fruits. They are divided into monounsaturated and polyunsaturated.[10]

Monounsaturated Fatty Acids

Monounsaturated fatty acids are often promoted as “heart healthy” because they lower LDL cholesterol, reducing your risk of heart attack and stroke. The greatest concentrations are found in olive, sunflower, and safflower oil, as well as avocados and most nuts. The oils found in these sources also provide vitamin E, a fat-soluble vitamin which many of us are deficient in.[16]

Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids

Polyunsaturated fatty acids, also written PUFAs, is the predominant fat in fish (such as salmon), vegetable oils, and some nuts and seeds.[10] Our essential fats, linoleic (Omega-6) and alpha-linoleic (Omega-3) are polyunsaturated and cannot be synthesized by the body.[17]

The general agreement is that most of us should consume more Omega-3 and less Omega-6 fatty acids[18] to reduce the risk of developing many of the diet-related chronic diseases plaguing Western societies. Omega-3 fatty acids can help slow the development of arterial plaque, reduce triglycerides, and reduce the risk of arrhythmia.[19]

What is High Cholesterol?

Too much cholesterol in the blood is called high blood cholesterol. It’s important to be mindful of your cholesterol levels to impede the development of heart disease. Doctors typically order a lipoprotein panel, also called a lipid profile, to evaluate your risk. The test measures 3 forms of fat in your blood:[20]

  • Low-density lipoproteins (LDL): “bad” cholesterol, this is the primary source of your body’s cholesterol. High levels of LDL in the blood can lead to atherosclerosis which can increase your risk for heart disease and stroke. LDL’s purpose is to carry cholesterol to the cells which can build up in the walls of your arteries.
  • High-density lipoproteins (HDL): “good” cholesterol that carries cholesterol away from your cells and blood vessel walls. These lipoproteins carry the collected cholesterol to your liver where it can be removed from the body.
  • Triglycerides: the free fatty acids transported in your blood that the body uses for energy. A combination of high levels of triglycerides, low HDL, and high LDL can increase your risk for heart attack or stroke.[19]

Experts recommend a total cholesterol level below 200 mg/dL. The following chart describes the different categories cholesterol levels fall within.

Total Cholesterol Level Category
Less than 200mg/dL Desirable
200-239 mg/dL Borderline high
240mg/dL and above High
LDL (Bad) Cholesterol Level LDL Cholesterol Category
Less than 100mg/dL Optimal
100-129mg/dL Near optimal/above optimal
130-159 mg/dL Borderline high
160-189 mg/dL High
190 mg/dL and above Very High
HDL (Good) Cholesterol Level HDL Cholesterol Category
Less than 40 mg/dL A major risk factor for heart disease
40—59 mg/dL The higher, the better
60 mg/dL and higher Considered protective against heart disease[4]

What to Do to Keep Your Cholesterol in Control

To keep your cholesterol levels in check, I strongly recommend a raw food diet. Vegetarians typically have significantly lower cholesterol levels than omnivores, while vegans typically have levels lowers still.[21] If a raw food diet is not realistic for you, do your best to avoid processed foods and eat lots of leafy greens, healthy nuts, and vegetable oils such as flaxseed.[18] Look out for partially hydrogenated oils on your nutrition labels; even if a package says “0 grams of trans fat” it can still have up to 0.5 g of trans fats in every serving. Try to reduce or eliminate your consumption of saturated fat[22] and cook with extra virgin olive oil.

One of the most delicious ways to regularly cleanse your body of excess cholesterol is to eat more fiber. Research indicates bile acids, which are synthesized from cholesterol, bind to soluble fiber in the intestines. This bound bile is later eliminated from the colon and more cholesterol must be pulled from the blood to synthesize more bile.[23] Eat foods high in soluble fiber such as oats, whole grains, beans, and citrus fruits to lower your cholesterol.[24]

Fats are an essential part of a healthy diet, but be mindful of how the different kinds may affect your health. Always try to include the best sources in your meals and buy organic when available.

Hillary Must Testify Under Oath In Writing On Her Festering Email Scandal

Senate Foreign Relations Committee holds a hearing on Benghazi in Washington, DC

Likely never before in the republic’s history has a candidate for the nation’s highest office been so irreparably legally, ethically and morally tainted multiple times over – clearly making her unfit to serve.

If ordinary people committed her offenses, they’d be serving long prison terms – perhaps life sentences with no possibility of parole.

Yet Hillary will likely succeed Obama – for the first time in US history, a known criminal to be anointed president of the United States and commander-in-chief of its military, her multiple high crimes ignored, her power as chief executive letting her reign terror on humanity with a stroke of her pen.

In response to the conservative Judicial Watch watchdog FOIA lawsuit, Hillary must respond in 30 days under oath to questions it’ll submit – US federal district court Judge Emmet Sullivan ruled.

He ordered former Information Resource Management of the Executive Secretariat director John Bentel be deposed. According to Sullivan’s court order:

“(T)he State Department shall release all remaining documents responsive to Judicial Watch’s Freedom of Information Act request by no later than September 30, 2016; and it is FURTHER ORDERED that, consistent with Rule 33 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, Judicial Watch may serve interrogatories on Secretary Clinton by no later than October 14, 2016.”

“Secretary Clinton’s responses are due by no later than thirty days thereafter…Judicial Watch may depose Mr. Bentel by no later than October 31, 2016.”

In his opinion, Judge Sullivan said “(t)he Court is persuaded that Secretary Clinton’s testimony is necessary to enable her to explain on the record the purpose for the creation and operation of the clintonemail.com system for State Department business.”

In response to his ruling, Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton said “(w)e are pleased that this federal court ordered Hillary Clinton to provide written answers under oath to some key questions about her email scandal.”

“We will move quickly to get these answers. The decision is a reminder that Hillary Clinton is not above the law.”

November 8 is election day. Hillary can delay responding to Judicial Watch’s questions until mid-month, or perhaps much later if she appeals – after likely becoming president-elect, the closest thing to immunity without getting it.

No US president was ever removed from office by impeachment or any other means. John Adams once said it would take a national convulsion to do it, nothing like it ever happening in US history or likely now.

Hillary has numerous disturbing crosses to bear. She’s an accused perjurer – her responses to FBI investigators on use of her home server for official State Department business differing from testimony before Congress.

If she perjures herself in responses to Judicial Watch questions, will she be held accountable or permitted to be inaugurated in January as America’s 45th president?

Will supportive media scoundrels downplay the seriousness of lying under oath? Will too few people pay attention either way?

Will a third Clinton co-presidency assume power regardless of what makes them unfit to serve?

Are Trolls Turning The Internet Into A Festival Of Hate?

hate

Have you noticed that people say some of the most hateful things imaginable on the Internet?  Earlier today, I came across a Time Magazine article entitled “How Trolls Are Ruining the Internet“, and it made me reflect on my own experience as the publisher of a number of prominent websites.  Over the years, I have often gotten to see what is really going on in some of the darkest hearts in our society.  There are people that come to my websites that somehow think that making crude sexual remarks about the wives and children of people that they have never met is perfectly acceptable behavior.  There are others that say incredibly vile things about people that have a different skin color than they do, and some people have a hatred for Christians and the Christian faith that is absolutely frightening.  I can’t understand why anyone would want to be like that, but apparently this kind of behavior is very widespread.  In fact, one Pew Research Center survey discovered that 70 percent of all 18-to-24-year-olds who use the Internet have experienced harassment at some point.

Sadly, the truth is that the relative anonymity of the Internet allows people to reveal what is really in their hearts.  For some people, the Internet magnifies the kindness and goodness that is in their hearts, but for others it does the exact opposite.  From the safety of their own homes, they endlessly spew speech that is so abusive that it is hard to imagine that the person spewing it is actually human.

These people are commonly known as “trolls”, and the following is how the Time Magazine article that I mentioned above describes these trolls

Psychologists call this the online disinhibition effect, in which factors like anonymity, invisibility, a lack of authority and not communicating in real time strip away the mores society spent millennia building. And it’s seeping from our smartphones into every aspect of our lives.

The people who relish this online freedom are called trolls, a term that originally came from a fishing method online thieves use to find victims. It quickly morphed to refer to the monsters who hide in darkness and threaten people. Internet trolls have a manifesto of sorts, which states they are doing it for the “lulz,” or laughs. What trolls do for the lulz ranges from clever pranks to harassment to violent threats.

Whatever happened to treating other people the way that you would like to be treated?

When did the Golden Rule go out of style?

As our society becomes more evil, hearts all over the country are growing cold, and one of the results is that the Internet is being transformed into a festival of hatred.  The same Time Magazine article detailed some particularly disturbing examples of troll hate

They’ve been steadily upping their game. In 2011, trolls descended on Facebook memorial pages of recently deceased users to mock their deaths. In 2012, after feminist Anita Sarkeesian started a Kickstarter campaign to fund a series of YouTube videos chronicling misogyny in video games, she received bomb threats at speaking engagements, doxxing threats, rape threats and an unwanted starring role in a video game called Beat Up Anita Sarkeesian. In June of this year, Jonathan Weisman, the deputy Washington editor of the New York Times, quit Twitter, on which he had nearly 35,000 followers, after a barrage of anti-Semitic messages. At the end of July, feminist writer Jessica Valenti said she was leaving social media after receiving a rape threat against her daughter, who is 5 years old.

On a very basic level, the Internet allows people to reveal who they really are.  Unfortunately, we are finding out that a lot of us are truly vile human beings.  Some time ago, a team of Canadian researchers did some research on Internet trolls, and what they found out was quite alarming

They conducted two online studies with over 1,200 people, giving personality tests to each subject along with a survey about their Internet commenting behavior. They were looking for evidence that linked trolling with the “Dark Tetrad” of personality traits: narcissism, Machiavellianism, psychopathy, and sadism.

They found that Dark Tetrad scores were highest among people who said trolling was their favorite Internet activity.

It should be no surprise that our society is crawling with narcissists, psychopaths and sadists.  For decades we have been pushing God out of every corner of public life, and as a result we have seen a moral decline that is absolutely unprecedented in our history.

So what can be done?

Is there a way that the trolls can be stopped?

Some big websites have stepped up their efforts to ban people that are advocating hatred and violence.  For instance, the New York Times says that Twitter just suspended 235,000 accounts “that promoted terrorism”…

Twitter suspended 235,000 accounts that promoted terrorism over the last six months, as part of a continuing effort to keep people from using the social network for extremist causes, the company said Thursday.

“The world has witnessed a further wave of deadly, abhorrent terror attacks across the globe,” Twitter said in a statement. “We strongly condemn these acts and remain committed to eliminating the promotion of violence or terrorism on our platform.”

And I definitely applaud Twitter for that.

But where does the censorship stop?  All too often, the definition of “extremists” goes far beyond violent terrorists.

Just consider what is happening during this campaign season.  Virtually all of the big tech companies have engaged in some form of “pro-Trump censorship”, and this was brilliantly detailed in a recent piece by Liz Crokin.  The following is a short excerpt…

I began looking into how strong the bias and censorship runs in these forums after I did an interview on the pro-Trump podcast, MAGAPod. The show’s host, Mark Hammond, was disappointed Apple wouldn’t run his show without an “explicit” warning. Hammond’s podcast didn’t contain content that would be deemed explicit under Apple’s policy, and most other shows in the News & Politics category aren’t labeled as such.

On June 18, Hammond talked to Sandra, a representative from Apple. She explained that, since the description of his show is pro-Trump, his show is explicit in nature—because the subject matter is Donald Trump. So, an Apple employee concluded the Republican presidential candidate is explicit.

iTunes has dozens of podcasts discussing Osama Bin Laden and Adolf Hitler—none of which is marked explicit.

And of course it probably won’t surprise you to learn that Apple CEO Tim Cook is a huge Hillary Clinton supporter and recently hosted a $50,000 per plate fundraiser for her campaign.

So where do we draw the line?

On my websites, I try to let everyone have their say as much as possible.  I very much believe in the “marketplace of ideas”, and I very much believe that the interaction between light and darkness can produce some extraordinary results.

But that also means that I often allow people to say things that I find highly offensive.

I don’t claim to have all the answers, but I do know that the problem is growing.  As our society continues to come apart at the seams, the hatred on the Internet will continue to increase.

The Internet is used for all sorts of horrible things, but it can also be used to do great things as well.  As the darkness rises, I would encourage all of us to choose to be lights.

In a world filled with hate, love is desperately needed.

So instead of responding to hate with even more hate, let us seek to become people of great faith, great hope and great love.

Damn “Healthers”- Liberal Media Spins Out New Name To Mock Anyone Questioning Hillary’s Health

new birthers

In what should come as no surprise to anyone the mainstream media particularly the liberal media known to strongly back CFR criminal Hillary Clinton is now officially categorizing any and all criticism of Hillary as “conspiracies”. Whether it’s her obvious health problems, the coughing, the disoriented looks, inability to go up the stairs by herself or even her apparent involuntary spasms demonstrated on camera during a recent press conference. None of this matters to the liberal media who is now not only acting as if Obama’s fake birth certificate was proven authentic despite the obvious photoshopped evidence and the curious death of Loretta Fuddy, the woman in charge of the Obama supposed birth certificate long form at the Hawaii hospital where he claims to have been born (look this up please), but to add insult to injury at the exact same time the liberal media is now labeling anyone questioning Hillary’s obvious deteriorating health as “the new Birthers” or more specifically you are a “healther”! Yes, the new birthers according to CNN pro-Hillary writer Gregory Krieg, who recently penned the propaganda article. In it Krieg states (some key propaganda items highlighted in bold):

From Donald Trump and his top surrogates to the right-wing media and its engine rooms of outrage in the blogosphere, Hillary Clinton’s opponents are ramping up efforts to sow doubt over the candidate’s health.

The campaign — which goes back years — has escalated to shouting over the summer, as Trump spiraled in the polls while mostly failing to connect with voters outside his base demographic. Now, as the race enters a crucial phase, there has been a growing push to fundamentally undermine Clinton’s candidacy.

Much in the way “birthers” (Trump was among the most prominent) sought similar ends by questioning President Barack Obama’s citizenship, the “healthers” are using junk science and conspiracy theories to argue that Clinton is suffering from a series of debilitating brain injuries.

In an interview on “Fox News Sunday” this weekend, former New York City mayor and Trump surrogate Rudy Giuliani first accused the mainstream media of hiding evidence, then encouraged doubters to “go online and put down ‘Hillary Clinton illness.’”

There is absolutely no credible evidence to backstop any of these claims, including on the “videos” Giuliani cited. Clinton’s physician — the only person to speak on the record who has actually examined her — has repeatedly affirmed the former secretary of state’s health and fitness for the highest office in the land.

But for those who want to believe otherwise, the structure of the lie borders on impenetrable — baked into its “medical” assertions is the tightly held belief that the press is in cahoots with Clinton, protecting her political prospects by working overtime to hide her imagined ailment.

The facts, though, tell a very different story. This is it.

Oh really? So the message CNN and the rest of the liberal media has for us is that all of the medical signs of deterioration that Hillary has shown recently is just a phony deceptive “plot” against her and Hillary is apparently a “victim” of propaganda being used against an otherwise honest and legitimate presidential candidate!

This level of propaganda, I believe, is clearly a sign of desperation from a campaign afraid of what is already happening behind the scenes in the Hillary camp. The key in this propaganda war is to push a certain perception, and this is the main purpose of the recent CNN article above.

As you can see, now anyone who questions even Hillary’s health is a conspiracy theorist and according to the above article this secret operation has been generated from the Trump camp along with Breitbart News, Info wars, Fox news and others. Kreig even connects the “conspiracy” to the comments Karl Rove made a few years back during the time when Hillary was scheduled to testify at the Benghazi hearing when he stated that Hillary might have brain damage. These clever connections to Rove and others only serve to politicize the issue so that everyone brushes it away as political propaganda instead of looking at the actual facts.

This is one of the most powerful techniques used by the ruling elite to salvage an issue and keep a good percentage of the masses in the dark. It’s the tit-for-tat or he-said-she-said polarizing tactic so that all the would-be Hillary voters are comforted in knowing that ALL of the health rumors are just propaganda and plots against poor Hillary. While I personally don’t subscribe to the left-right paradigm everyone should realize that left wing liberals are particularly vulnerable to this polarizing propaganda tactic as we’ve seen in the past (think global warming and Koch brothers) and the ruling elite use it because it works.

It gets better though. Kreig poses many arguments in his article including a notion that he has the “proof” from Hillary’s actual medical history and records showing that she’s “healthy”. But is this the case? Does Kreig and the CNN propaganda machine prove their case? Let’s take a closer look. Kreig boldly claims that:

In July 2015, Clinton’s longtime physician, Dr. Lisa Bardack, delivered her a clean bill of health.

A clean bill of health? Okay, fair enough. Now let’s take a close look at this “clean bill of health” (posted here) that CNN’s Kreig is claiming. I will list the items myself for the sake of not posting the actual medical records. In it, doctor Bardack herself admits the following:

1- Hillary has a history of thyroid disorder (hypothyroid) and is on medication for this.

2- Hillary has a history of Deep Veinous Thrombosis (DVT), a potentially very serious disorder which can cause sudden stroke or even worse pulmonary embolism (PE), which is when a clot breaks off and ends up in the lungs. Any doctor will tell you PE can be unpredictable and is a common cause of sudden death!

3- Hillary has suffered not one but TWO episodes of DVT. (red flag!) Western medical doctors are trained to view a history of “recurrent DVT” as a very serious matter. This is true for any patient with this history INCLUDING Hillary.

4- Hillary suffered a concussion in 2012 which in itself may or may not be significant. But in light of the full picture this is very concerning.

5- Hillary fainted and hit her head. The doctor claims this was from dehydration but I assure all readers there is no certainty in this assumed cause of the fainting. Hillary may have fainted due to her thyroid condition, her thyroid medication, other medications like blood thinners or some other reason. No one should assume that Dr Bardack or any doctors knows for sure why Hillary fainted especially given the medications she’s on.

6- After falling, Hillary suffered a transverse sinus venous thrombosis for which she was put on blood thinners. How is this not concerning? Transverse sinus venous thrombosis is extremely rare and today’s average doctor has little to no experience treating, handling or observing such rare disorder.

I want to point out several other things. First, the transverse sinus venous thrombosis essentially means Hillary suffered a blood clot in the back of her head in one of the primary blood draining vessels (See image below) so this is no minor clot we’re talking about. The novice reading through Hillary’s record would not readily pick up on this. Also, being started on blood thinners doesn’t mean she wasn’t already on a different long acting blood thinner.

transversesinus

7- Hillary suffered from post-concussion syndrome for 2 full months.

8- As of July 28, 2015 Hillary was still on both thyroid medication, anti-histamines, and Coumadin an (often dangerous) blood thinner with many side-effects (see below). Add to that Hillary occasionally drinks alcohol (but how often? hmm). Alcohol, when combined with Coumadin can be very dangerous.

Also, though doctor Bardack says her Coumadin level is under control with “no side-effects” from her medication no one should be fooled by this. Coumadin is very unpredictable especially in a 68 year old woman with multiple medical issues. Here are just some of the side-effects of Coumadin:

Nausea, loss of appetite, or stomach/abdominal pain may occur. If any of these effects persist or worsen, tell your doctor or pharmacist promptly.

This medication can cause serious bleeding if it affects your blood clotting proteins too much (shown by unusually high INR lab results). Even if your doctor stops your medication, this risk of bleeding can continue for up to a week. Tell your doctor right away if you have any signs of serious bleeding, including: unusual pain/swelling/discomfort, unusual/easy bruising, prolonged bleeding from cuts or gums, persistent/frequent nosebleeds, unusually heavy/prolonged menstrual flow, pink/dark urine, coughing up blood, vomit that is bloody or looks like coffee grounds, severe headache, dizziness/fainting, unusual or persistent tiredness/weakness, bloody/black/tarry stools, chest pain, shortness of breath, difficulty swallowing.

Tell your doctor right away if any of these unlikely but serious side effects occur: persistent nausea/vomiting, severe stomach/abdominal pain, yellowing eyes/skin.

This drug rarely has caused very serious (possibly fatal) problems if its effects lead to small blood clots (usually at the beginning of treatment). This can lead to severe skin/tissue damage that may require surgery or amputation if left untreated. Patients with certain blood conditions (protein C or S deficiency) may be at greater risk. Get medical help right away if any of these rare but serious side effects occur: painful/red/purplish patches on the skin (such as on the toe, breast, abdomen), change in the amount of urine, vision changes, confusion, slurred speech, weakness on one side of the body.

A very serious allergic reaction to this drug is rare. However, get medical help right away if you notice any symptoms of a serious allergic reaction, including: rash, itching/swelling (especially of the face/tongue/throat), severe dizziness, trouble breathing.

This is not a complete list of possible side effects. If you notice other effects not listed above, contact your doctor or pharmacist.

Also, thyroid medication and anti-histamines all have side-effects and there is no telling what effects you will get in a 68 year old patient taking all of these at the same time. We’re talking reality medicine here not the ideal textbook scenario many doctors paint when pushing all these pills, which by the way rarely happens.

Finally, doctor Bardack admits that Hillary:

9- Has a strong family history of stroke, heart failure and premature heart disease.

Now that we have a full picture of Hillary’s (supposed) true health record let’s remember something very important. This entire record is from OVER one year ago and in a 68 year old this record may have NO bearing whatsoever on what might be her current health condition. So the real question CNN should be asking is- can we see Hillary’s current medical records not the record from July of 2015?

Today, one year later, Hillary is seen suspiciously followed by an “agent” who wears a medical lapel and who the liberal media wants to downplay as just an ordinary secret service agent who is carrying a “flashlight” and not any medications (like what looks to be a Diazepam auto-injector) for Hillary. But there are far too many questions that CNN and the rest of the liberal media cannot answer like:

1- Why did Hillary strangely dismiss herself from a recent presidential debate for over 20 minutes while insiders revealed it was due to medical issues?

2- Why is Hillary caught on video involuntarily convulsing and suffering from a bout of what appears to be a form of grand mal seizure?

3- Why will Hillary all of a sudden not do press conferences? Since when do presidential candidates declare they don’t do press conferences??

4- Why has Hillary been seen unable to go up simple stairs by herself and requiring the aid of multiple agents?

None of this should be taken lightly in the context of what we now know about Hillary’s medical past including the dangerous medications she’s on. Remember, we’re not talking about a healthy teenager or a young person who can overcome the types of medical problems Hillary has.

The conclusion in all of this is that the ruling elite are determined to insert Hillary Clinton as the next US president. This is why people are being murdered on her road there. And this is why the FBI Director is willing to break the rule of law and allow this criminal to get away with multiple obvious crimes and violations of the law that you or I would never get away with.

Another important point is that as long as everyone is talking about Hillary’s health they are not talking about the even greater issues of her criminal past, her released emails and her recent connection to the CIA terrorist Fetullah Gulan who is linked to the recent failed coup attempt in Turkey and who is living in Pennsylvania.

No one should be surprised by this nasty free-for-all propaganda campaign designed to tuck every single fault that Hillary has under the category of “Trump campaign plot” or flat out “conspiracy theories”.

As awakened Americans know by now, when the ruling elite are cornered about being exposed, the one excuse they will always resort to is the name calling of “conspiracies” and “conspiracy theories” or in this case “the new birthers” or “healthers”.

Remember a long long time ago when only JFK was a “conspiracy”? Then it was 9/11. Years ago, anyone questioning the 9/11 lie was a “conspiracy theorists”, remember that? Well, here we are in 2016 where literally everyone is a “conspiracy theorist”. The phrase has come full circle since it’s official inception in 1967 when the CIA introduced document 1035-960. Today even the very presidential nominee and the entire campaign competing with CFR’s top criminal Hillary Clinton is accused of all being “conspiracy theorist”.

As I mentioned in a recent article, all awakened truth seekers should brace for what will be and is already materializing as the greatest propaganda blitzkrieg known to mankind in the next few months leading up to the US presidential election in 2016. The gloves are off and literally everything coming out of mainstream media is lies and deception. They desperately need to get their CFR criminal in the White House to complete the destruction of America and the world carried out by Obama and the Bush-Cheney-Rumsfeld crime team before that.

America is in danger of full destruction and this frankly stupid “healther” name-calling propaganda campaign denying the truth about the not-so-health, strange-acting and potentially deteriorating Hillary Clinton is just one tiny piece of the puzzle.

Hillary Vows To Shut Down Dissenting Internet Sites If She Wins Presidency (VIDEO)

hillary clinton

By: The Voice of Reason |

Whoever coined the phrase, “The devil you know is better than the one you don’t,” OBVIOUSLY never met Hillary Clinton. There is a reason she is called Hitlery not only in private, but often in print as well at times. There is no situation on earth that the Devil we know with Hitlery, is EVER better than ANYONE, let alone Donald Trump. How many people has Trump killed again? Oh yes, zero.

First of all, there’s her never-ending killing spree of her political opposition. On August 6th, when I wrote, Clinton Adds +5 to Body Count in 6 Weeks, a total of FIVE those former Clinton associates turned adversaries turned up dead in only the previous SIX weeks, making a total of 67 dead former Clinton associates. 

Since that time, Wikileaks founder Julian Assange promised that his next big data dump would be enough to put Hillary behind bars. Without actually giving away whatever the next big secret is, Assange certainly hinted in a post titled, Julian Assange Drops Bombshell Involving Murder on Hillary Clinton, that he had information linking Hillary to the recent death/murder of DNC staffer Seth Rich.

Fast forward a few days, and by all counts, it certainly appears Mrs. Clinton can put another notch in her belt with kill #68. In yet another freak accident, Julian Assange’s lawyer who represented Assange mysteriously died after being struck by train in West Hampstead. Go figure. Let’s hope if anything, his lawyer’s death only serves to motivate Assange, rather than scare him away.

THIS is who half of America has no problem voting for to be their next President, as if Hillary wouldn’t walk across every last one of their children to get ahead personally if she had to. 68 mysterious deaths is bad enough, but she’s hellbent on taking your guns too, so you cannot defend yourself against her. Think I’m kidding? Conservative Tribune Writes:

The Washington Free Beacon recently obtained an audio recording of Clinton’s remarks to what was obviously a liberal, anti-gun crowd at a “small private fundraiser in New York” — which is the only kind of crowd to be found at a Clinton fundraiser in New York, most likely.

Clinton told donors that the Supreme Court was “wrong on the Second Amendment.”

“I’m going to speak out, I’m going to do everything I can to rally people against this pernicious, corrupting influence of the NRA,” she said. “And we’re going to do whatever we can.”

“The idea that you can have an open carry permit with an AK-47 over your shoulder walking up and down the aisles of a supermarket is just despicable,” Clinton added.

What she didn’t explain was “why.” Why, exactly, is this idea “just despicable”? How many gun owners have legally carried an AK-47 or similar weapon into a supermarket and committed a crime? Have there been 100 such crimes? A dozen?

Have a listen when she didn’t know she was being recorded:

—————————————

In the video below, you’ll learn that the lawlessness hardly stops with dead bodies and promises to take away guns. This past week Hillary Campaign also vowed to destroy opposition websites. No one would cover Obama and Hillary going to bilderberg but Infowars was on the scene. The MSM would’t pick it up. Trump goes to L.A. “Breitbart is something different,” she says. “They make Fox News look like a Democratic Party pamphlet. They’re a different breed altogether — not just conservative but radical, bigoted, anti-Muslim, anti-Semitic conspiracy peddlers who never have been and never should be anywhere near the levers of power in this country.”

The Daily Caller Writes: 

Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s campaign has sent out a fundraising email arguing the website Breitbart News has no “right to exist,” and suggests that if elected, the website will be shut down entirely.

“We’ve had a conservative media in this country for a while,” says the email, sent Thursday and signed by deputy communications director Christina Reynolds. “I don’t always like what they have to say, but I respect their role and their right to exist Reynolds’ acknowledgment that the regular conservative media has a “right to exist,” though, is used to contrast it with Breitbart, which apparently has no such right. (sic)

“Breitbart is something different,” she says. “They make Fox News look like a Democratic Party pamphlet. They’re a different breed altogether — not just conservative but radical, bigoted, anti-Muslim, anti-Semitic conspiracy peddlers who never have been and never should be anywhere near the levers of power in this country.”

One of the goals of Clinton’s campaign, Reynolds says, is to ensure Breitbart is destroyed.

“It goes without saying that we have to beat these people. But I want to beat them so decisively that their kind never rises again,” she says.

Reynolds’ aggressive attack was sparked by Republican nominee Donald Trump’s decision to shake up his campaign by bringing on Breitbart executive chairman Stephen Bannon to serve as his campaign CEO.

Madame President Clinton’s Coming War on the Blogosphere, and Your Countermeasures

In the following video, I reference a blog post written by best selling author James Wesley, Rawles, arguably most well known for his survivalist-genre Patriots novel series, and for being the fonder and Senior Editor of SurvivalBlog.com. In the blog post written August 1st titled, Madame President Clinton’s Coming War on the Blogosphere, and Your Countermeasures, James begins to lay out his predictions for how Hillary will use federal agencies including, but not limited to, the DOJ, SEC, FEC, IRS, FCC, DHS, and others, to attack her political adversaries.

As you learned above, not even three weeks after his predictions, which include updating your passport and establishing an offshore bank account, are already beginning to take shape… and she’s not even in the White House yet. As I said above, in this case, the devil you don’t know, is 1000x better than the one we do.

Recall the blog post I included in a previous article by James Wesley, Rawles and reviewed in the video above which was taken from his website SurvivalBlog.com. In the blog post referenced that is dated August 1st, James very accurately predictrs that Hillary and her campaign would do exactly what we’re already seeing from them… exceot Hillary isn’t even in the White House yet!

For those who don’t know, James Wesley, Rawles is an American author, best known for his survivalist-genre Patriots novel series. Rawles is a former U.S. Army Intelligence officer, and he is the founder and Senior Editor of SurvivalBlog.com, which covers survival and preparedness topics, and has published collected material from this in two books. Rawles writes:

Now that Hillary (“Hitlery”) Rodham Clinton (HRC) has received the Democratic Party nomination for president, there is a strong likelihood that she will win the election in November and then be enthroned as president in January of 2017. I predict that she will waste no time in launching an onslaught of punitive new policies via executive orders, presidential memoranda, and policy directives promulgated through her cabinet and Federal agencies to eviscerate our Constitutional rights (most notably the 1st and 2nd Amendments).

A key goal this campaign will be silencing dissent in the alternative press and the American blogosphere. Given HRC’s history in government “service”, her outlook on life, her socialist agenda, and her vindictiveness, I anticipate that any or all of the following measures will be undertaken by the HRC Administration:

The Department of Justice (DOJ) will be used to selectively prosecute dissenters for “hate speech”. For instance, simply objecting to illegal immigration or state sponsored relocation of Muslims will be called “evidence of hate.” They will also declare blogs, news sites, and podcasts to be “public accommodations” and hence saddle them with a long list of new restrictions that would effectively muzzle them from making any comments opposed to HRC’s agenda and “protected” classes. Even the use of “trigger words” could be restricted.

The Securities Exchange Commission (SEC) will be used to target dissenters who make any comments about any corporations, mutual funds, or banks, for “operating as unregistered investment advisors”.

The Federal Election Commission (FEC) will be used to target Libertarians and other dissenters for “unlawful campaigning”.

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) will use their newly-assumed powers over the Internet to enforce a new radicalized version of the moribund Fairness Doctrine upon bloggers, vloggers (video bloggers), podcasters, as well as newspapermen, magazine writers, and talk radio hosts. Under this new and improved fairness policy, any media outlet that is deemed a public accommodation will be forced to free of charge provide equal space to assorted perverts, leftists, and Social Justice Warriors. Failure to do so will open up these news outlets to both criminal prosecution and costly civil lawsuits.

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) will be used to selectively audit tax filings, levy bank accounts, garnish wages, and refer criminal prosecution of anyone who voices dissent of HRC’s statist/collectivist agenda. Lois Lerner’s group was just the precursor!

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will be used to target dissenters who own property with seasonal puddles that could be deemed “wetlands” or creeks that could be arbitrarily declared “navigable waters”.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agency will be used to target dissenters living within 50 miles of the Mexican or Canadian borders for harassment and intimidation, searching their homes without warrants.

The Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) and associated Tribal Police will be used to target dissenters living within 100 miles of any Tribal Reservation for harassment and intimidation.

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) will crack down on any bloggers who make posts that might be construed as a product review or product endorsement.

The Transportation Security Agency (TSA) will be used to limit the travel of anyone deemed by HRC’s cronies to be an Enemy of the State (through expansion of the No Fly List, Terror Watch List, and Selectee List).

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will crack down on producers of raw milk and nutritional supplements (and also on the bloggers who promote them).

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) will prosecute anyone operating unlicensed drones weighing more than just a few ounces.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) will use both its own agents and paid (or coerced) surrogate agent provocateurs to infiltrate militias, patriot groups, and secessionist organizations. There, they will foment schemes that can be prosecuted under loosely-worded Federal conspiracy laws. (This is precisely what was done with the Bundy Ranch and Malheur Wildlife Refuge protestors.)

Working in conjunction with the FCC, the U.S. Coast Guard will board any ship within Territorial Waters that they suspect of operating an unlicensed transmitter.

……..

I can see all of this coming, and I refuse to be muzzled. I aim to misbehave. If need be, I will relocate so that I can still blog freely. In anticipation of HRC’s possible upcoming coronation, here are some possible countermeasures for my fellow bloggers to seriously consider:

Contract for the use of an offshore server in a country that has minimal influence from the United States government, and move your web pages there.

Get set up for encrypted e-mail. (The free GPG software installed on your local PC works quite well. And for those who are less tech savvy, the paid Unseen.is service in Iceland works fine.)

Post provisos on your web site that are similar to my own. (Most importantly, these provisos must declare that you do not operate a “public accommodation.”)

Buy an Iridium satellite telephone and a set of Iridium international power adapters. (Unlike cell phones or other sat phones, calls made from Iridium constellation phones can be traced only to a particular oval satellite “footprint” that measures hundreds of miles across.)

Buy several inexpensive prepaid “burner” cell phones. Pay greenback cash for these phones, and use an assumed name when you eventually activate them.

Buy a nondescript camping trailer or RV and quietly (via face-to-face contacts only) develop a “hospitality list” of like-minded families who own parcels of land that you can bounce between, in the event that you need to take refuge.

Buy a spare laptop computer (preferably one that is ultra-reliable, such as a Panasonic Toughbook), a 12 VDC car adapter, and a set of international power adapters.

Buy a USB external long range Yagi wireless antenna to use with your laptops. (The standoff distance that these provide will make it harder to pinpoint your location when using a public wi-fi hotspot.)

Buy a batch of at least 40 inexpensive 2 GB USB memory sticks that you can use to physically mail (or courier) digital content, to keep your locale secret.

Make sure that your passport is updated.

Do some research to develop a short list of countries where you would consider relocating. Ideally, a country should have respect for the freedom of speech, minimal taxation, minimal influence from the United States government, and NO rendition (extradition) treaty with the United States.

Establish an offshore bank account.

Beyond just offshore residency, if you can afford it, then buy a second passport. (Typically, this is done with a “Citizenship Through Investment” program.)

Via encrypted e-mail, develop contacts with foreign bloggers, and get their tentative agreement to post your ghost-written articles, if circumstances change.

Pray hard.

I don’t mean for the foregoing to sound alarmist. Consider me a realist. – JWR


THE VOICE OF REASON is the pen name of Michael DePinto, a graduate of Capital University Law School, and an attorney in Florida. Having worked in the World Trade Center, along with other family and friends, Michael was baptized by fire into the world of politics on September 11, 2001. Michael’s political journey began with tuning in religiously to whatever the talking heads on television had to say, then Michael became a “Tea-Bagging” activist as his liberal friends on the Left would say, volunteering within the Jacksonville local Tea Party, and most recently Michael was sworn in as an attorney. Today, Michael is a major contributor to www.BeforeItsNews.com, he owns and operates www.thelastgreatstand.com, where Michael provides what is often very ‘colorful’ political commentary, ripe with sarcasm, no doubt the result of Michael’s frustration as he feels we are witnessing the end of the American Empire. The topics Michael most often weighs in on are: Martial Law, FEMA Camps, Jade Helm, Economic Issues, Government Corruption, and Government Conspiracy.
