For years many people have been disappointed in the two-party monopoly that has plagued modern politics. The corruption among both parties had come to a boiling point. The frustration with the two major parties began to find itself struggling over crucial issues relative to the party. After the 2012 Presidential Campaign and leading into 2016 election, voters started to leave the major parties and join a lesser known party called the Libertarian Party. The initial surge in growth of the party was fueled by Republicans who were fed up with how the party treated Ron Paul in 2012. New arrivals to the Libertarian Party also included Democrats who did not like how Bernie Sanders was treated in 2016. Of course, when these two groups try to unite under one banner, there are going to be some substantial ideological problems that will arise. I think most people who joined liked the idea of less military spending and less foreign policy by way of war. There are many issues that plenty of people who joined agree on regardless of what party they were with before. Continue reading “The Growing Pains of a Third Party”→

With every mass shooting that happens in America, one thing is a guarantee – gun control talks. The airwaves fill with Operation Mockingbird-style disinformation and the collectivists seem to find the most ill-informed individuals on the planet to represent the latest emotional argument surrounding firearms. As the networks pound out the non-stop round the clock coverage on the latest news of the events each segment can be seen with an “expert” on to talk about gun violence. To listen to these experts talk about firearms is equivalent to hearing a lecture on basketweaving from me. However, even I think I could get more basketweaving terms correct in my foolishness than these “experts” can get correct about firearms.

We are now well over a year after the election of President Donald Trump over the heavily favored and seasoned career politician, Hillary Clinton. The election was seen as middle America rising against the Deep State controlled Republic in the effort to “Make America Great Again.” The economy was in the tank from the previous administration and unemployment, when real numbers were used, showed little signs of growth from the middle-class. The American people were fed up and looking for answers. What have we really gotten in reality? Same company with a new CEO. Continue reading “The Shadow Government’s Deep State”→

By now we should all know what a false flag is as the events seem to happen more often today. If you do not, a false flag is an event that is designed to deceive in such a way that those activities appear as though they are being carried out by a different individual, or group, or nation other than those who actually planned and executed them. Sometimes a false flag can be an event that never actually occurred, just reported to people with the blame shifted to people who had nothing to do with it.
There are several different types of false flags events. We have seen the Republic witness both types as the stranglehold for control of our sovereignty continues. One such false flag is what is called a false flag hoax like what we saw in the Sandy Hook shooting. Continue reading “False Flags and the Florida School Shooting”→
Another mass shooting and another attempt to demonize the gun and not the shooter. When these things happen logic and reason seems to be the last thing that is used in the Liberal rebuttal. Somehow, irresponsibly and illogically, they believe, through laws, they can rid the streets of firearms and, therefor, reducing gun violence. This couldn’t be any farther from the truth. Actually, when that word “logic” is applied it does the opposite. It creates criminals through many means. It grows the firearms black market and responsible gun owners will be deemed criminals overnight, without committing a single crime other than owning a firearm. Or exercising a natural right in self defense and property protection.
Let’s look at one way the left has tried to combat this through legislation and laws. Take for instance the gun free zones implemented throughout the country. Gun free zones makes it a law to not have on your person a firearm. Yet, these acts happen in gun free zones. That is a blatant disregard for the law proving that criminals do not obey laws. Instead it makes personal targets out of law abiding citizens. If enacting a law would do away with gun violence then gun free zones should be the ideal place to prove the point. It indeed shows the opposite.
Was Sandy Hook not a gun free zone? How about the Aurora, Colorado cinema shooting? The most recent mass shooting in San Bernardino, California was a gun free zone as well. I could go on and on about mass shootings that have occurred in gun free zones. Actually if we were honest in this situation, we would all agree that they have become the preferred choice of those hell bent on causing the most casualties through mass shootings. Why is that? It’s simple really. There is no resistance to the shooter through means of self protection, in return, creating a perfect scenario for the shooter to go rampant, unimpeded.
Laws can not be the simple answer to ending this growing problem. Take the Oklahoma City bombing of the Federal building. Wasn’t bombs against the law in Oklahoma? Of course they were, but it didn’t stop the criminal mind of his decision to create a huge amount of innocent death. Boston marathon is another example of laws not working. In Boston, like the rest of the country, bombs are illegal, but were used. Laws simply do not work for criminals only law abiding citizens. The Uni-bomber being a classic case as well for ignoring laws for those set on carrying out criminal acts.
Circling back to firearms we need to address this all out assault against our second amendment. The consequences are to high in ignoring this fight. Like George Washington stated, “The second amendment is the Liberty’s teeth.” It covers so much more than protection of one self and property, but against those that wish to overthrow the Republic.
This latest shooting in California only reiterates and confirms how the criminal mind will have zero disregard for gun laws, or any laws for that matter. California has one of the most strictest gun control laws in the nation, (as well as Chicago which I will talk about later) yet several laws were ignored by the terrorist. It happened in a gun free zone with a high capacity magazine, and they had pipe bombs as well. Clear disregard for the left’s approach to combating gun violence.
We can all wear peace signs, ask the universe to shower us with utopian bliss, and even sing Kumbaya together, but that will not solve this problem. Neither will a magazine capacity law, a gun free zone sign, or an assault weapons ban. Only confronting this through rational and effective means can we see an end to gun violence. We are always going to have violence. That’s not a popular stance, however, it is a realistic fact. The main thing is we do not create unnecessary victims at the expense of ideology from others.
We hear rhetoric about gun show purchases being an issue in acquiring firearms, but we do not see the firearms being used in these shootings having been purchased at gun shows. Matter of fact, many have been purchased legally as in the California case. Straw purchases, or a personal sale between two individuals also have been used to make the argument in reducing gun violence, but once again, we do not see the facts back that up. Statics show that gun show owners are your most knowledgeable, trained, and respected gun owners. Guess that’s why a mass shooting has never happened at a gun show. Well, that and the fact that a criminal knows he will not get very far in his plan. Why? Because a good guy with a gun(s) will stop him. Also why we don’t see shootings happen at rifle ranges as well. So we can clearly see guns are not the problem, but people who want to cause mass harm is.
Now to Chicago which is Liberal heaven and we can see the gun control ideology played out daily. Chicago, along with New York, New Orleans, Detroit, and the State of California are among the places that has the highest form of gun control. What else do these places have in common? You guessed it. The highest rate of gun violence. That’s not by accident. Criminals know a soft target when they see it. In these places there are many soft targets. Also these places have been governed by the Democratic Party and have instituted the left’s ideology. Only to fail and help make the case against gun control through the need for more legislation.
Open carry and concealed carrying of individuals have been brought up as a means to protect or limit the mass shooters actions, but the left has attacked it as a crazy idea. Even calling them radical. It is here I like to remind the left that it’s not the actions of open carrying or even concealed carrying individuals that have cause this problem. In fact, they have been credited many times with stopping violent crimes. Here again, the left have no logic even when presented with facts and statics. Can anyone name a time when an open carry, or concealed carry individual has committed a mass shooting? An individual that decides to open or conceal carry is generally your most trained and knowledgeable firearm owners, yet through propaganda and unwarranted fear, they are the most demonized.
There is no doubt that this is and will continue to be a hot topic, but much needed topic to talk all the way through to conclusion. Many views and ideology has been discussed and will be discussed at lengths in the coming months. One thing is for certain, gun free zones are not the answer only helping contribute to the problem.
We are coming off the heels of the San Bernarndino shooting and the attacks in Paris as well showing that this is a global problem not isolated. Paris is like the States I mentioned earlier in this article, very heavy regulated when it comes to gun control. It didn’t help reduce violence in the attacks, but the legislation Paris has on gun ownership helped create a higher casualty in lack of self protection means.
The fact of the matter is we do not need the government to help us out in this fight. We can send a message to the would be shooters that we will defend our own lives and others around us through continued responsible gun ownership and practices. Gun sales are now at an all time high and the message needs to be heard by the government that the people are sending. That message is “We got this.”
A nation fighting a growing and out of control “War on Terrorism” doesn’t need an unarmed populace. When seconds matter cops are minutes away. That has been proven over and over time again. From Columbine, to Aurora, to Oregon, and now San Bernarndino, we are the front lines to self protection. Nothing radical about that and it’s our duty to do so. With a true Republic there are risk, but we shouldn’t compound the problem by being helpless victims to those that wish to do us harm.
Whether it is terrorist from abroad or the common mass shooters we are facing, we need to take our rights and safety very serious and let those know that what to take either, rights or liberties, we will not allow it. If terrorist want to change our way of life cause they hate our freedoms then we don’t need to let them win by surrendering our freedom. We need to let them know we will not be infiltrated or usurped because of our differences.
If the mass shooter wants to do mass damage then we need to let them know we will not stand for it. We will confront you on any ground, under any circumstance. The message of an armed populace will send a message to the shooter that we will not be taken as helpless victims, but rather as a fighting obstacle to their goal.
Having an armed, trained personnel at schools, theaters, and other venues will limit the destruction if not stop it in it’s tracks. This needs to be reported in an honest way through our media instead of the partisan politics that we see reported daily. The media can play a crucial role in securing our second amendment instead of playing party politics.
With gun violence on the rise I am glad to see gun sales also on the rise. The message is being sent, but will Washington accept it or continue to blame the gun, not the individual? If I was a betting person my money would be on they will continue to promote fear and ideology instead of common sense talks and protecting the right to bear and keep arms.
In the words of Senator Dianne Feinstein, “When the gunman realizes that nobody else is armed, he will lay down his weapons and turn himself in…. that’s just human nature.” I have to ask the question, did they in Aurora? Or Sandy Hook? Ft. Hood? Paris? Or here recently, in California? This is the mentality we are up against when dealing with gun legislation and gun ownership rights. She knows this is an outright lie, but is playing on the heart strings of good American people. Simply disgusting and unprofessional remarks from an elected official.
President Obama has come out and officially stated, “enough is enough.” Mr. President I agree. Enough is enough. The people are speaking and you, sir, are not listening. Your administration isn’t listening and the amount of dead continue to rise. The problem isn’t the amount of guns, the problem is people. People kill and seek mass casualties, not guns.
Labeling a firearm as an “assault weapon” and banning them will do nothing to stop gun violence. Limiting magazine capacities will not stop gun violence. A silly sign that says “gun free zone” will not stop gun violence. What will stop gun violence? A good guy with a gun. Leave your political agenda at the door. Swallow your hatred for groups like the N.R.A. and do the job of a President and that is to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America. No amount of Executive Actions, legislation, or political ideology will stop this. Securing the rights of individual will play a pivotal role in how we stop these acts, or become victims to these act.
Mr. President, the people are speaking. Are you listening?

We are under a massive attack on our rights. This isn’t a theory and it’s not fear mongering. Look around you and think about all the new laws and regulations that are coming at us on every front. Internet regulations, socialized healthcare, Freedom Act, and the Federal Common Core Curriculum to name just a few. What about the expansion of bureaucracies? The N.S.A., T.S.A., Department of Education, Department of Energy, and Department of Homeland Security, once again, just to name a few. How about the expansion of wars either directly or through proxy countries. Everyone can sense that the winds of change are blowing and blowing in a very dangerous direction. Every freedom that past generations have fought for and unfortunately have died for, is under attack. We are living in a pivotal time that will ultimately define how history will be written. Our actions will not only define this generation but how future generations lives will be lived. In freedom, with individual sovereignty. or under oppression and tyranny. That will be our decision to make and time is running out. Continue reading “Listen To Me Now, Not Later”→

Operation Mockingbird. Sounds like an evil plot among birds, right? I can see a tree full of birds plotting against another group of birds calling their plan Operation Mockingbird. Well, this scenario isn’t that far-fetched just substitute birds for people, keep the plotting, and think of the tree full of birds as actually Washington D.C. and the other tree as the American people. Maybe before we continue with the silly analogies, we need to define what this operation really is and how it is manipulating what we see and hear.
Here is what many have officially defined as Operation Mockingbird. It is a government program that used C.I.A. personnel to infiltrate media organizations, and their objective is to control the way we hear the news, receive the news, and even react to the news. Their goal is to discredit alternative media and place the focus on the mainstream media; which they control, run, write for, and present. How did this deception get conceived and is it still going on today?
Let’s define what it is, and then we will look at is this program still active today. What we do know for sure is that Operation Mockingbird was a secret program of the United States Central Intelligence Agency (C.I.A.) to manipulate the media as stated above. It got its roots in the early 1950’s and was initially started by Cord Meyer and Allen W. Dulles. When Dulles became head of the C.I.A., the program was taken over by Frank Wisner. Their objective was to recruit well known and respected journalist into their system to tell the C.I.A.’s views through a “legitimate” news source. They are even attributed to some student and culture organizations, buying news and magazine businesses, and significant news outlet worldwide.
What would be their point in doing this? The answers here are numerous so I will touch on a couple. One, and probably the main reason, is to control political opinions and help create the division among us. Why would the C.I.A. want division between us? To implement the Cloward and Piven strategy, but I will touch on that strategy in another article. For time’s sake, let’s just say they can’t carry out their global agenda with a united populace. They need us divided and dependent on them, their system, their goals as the answer. Think of it as them creating fictitious chaos so they can come in with the solution and appear to be the answer to all our problems.
Well, how do we know where to get our news from and who is the reliable source? This is a question I get asked many times. The answer is really multi-layered and needs to be addressed. It is evident and obvious that mainstream media is under the influence of this operation even to this day. So, that really leaves us as the news source. It is because we have become dependent on mainstream media to tell us how to feel, what to eat, how to dress, what’s popular, what’s not, that led us to this point of disinformation. Just like if someone came into our home and took it over, it would be our responsibility to take back our house. This issue is no different. After all, they are coming into our house and taking over our thoughts, opinions, and way of life. Well, let’s take it back!
We can do this in many ways. With today’s social media, blogs like this one, and platforms to get our voice out there this is easier than ever to report the accurate news. It is imperative in today’s time to not post satire articles. This is a huge issue for me and needs to stop. Sure those articles can be witty, funny, and most times so far-fetched that it can not only lose the person out there seeking the information but discredit us in general. It is imperative that we do not become what we are fighting when the fight is about disinformation. There are many out there that may not be vocal in their fight but are relying on you for their news.
Use social media to inform the unaware and to open up dialogue. This will not only help the information get out there, but will also open up that dialogue we seek to those that may not fully understand what is really going on. Share articles you find informative, accurate, and trustworthy. Build a pipeline of blogs, social media sites, friends, family, that you see to be engaged and aware. Talk the points all the way through to conclusion to not only get all the facts laid out but to understand the issues better yourself. In summary, learn the lesson then go out and be the teacher. The important thing to remember is that you were not born awake and neither was the person you are trying to reach. Meet them where they are at in their understanding. If they are health conscious, then don’t approach them about the Federal Reserve. It will be overwhelming and unproductive. Instead, let them know about G.M.O.’s and the harms of vaccines. Once again, meet them where they are at. Do not use this time to show off how much you know, but instead help them get to where you are in understanding the fact. Baby steps.
Why alternative media and not mainstream media. Well, let’s look at who owns and operates these mega media sources. Before I go any further, I’m not saying completely turn off mainstream media, just be aware of the global agenda when listening to them and do your own research. Always do your own research. Even when it comes to alternative media.
Take Fox News for example. They are the biggest and most watch news we have. Who owns them and what is their relationship to the globalist, or elitist? News Corp which is the parent company to Fox News is actually owned by Rupert Murdoch with Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal holding 7% of the operation. When dealing with the global agenda, Saudi is one of the most violent countries even though we refer to them as an ally. They have a horrible domestic policy and actually, to date, has more beheadings than what we see with ISIS. Saudi has also been implemented and tied to 9/11.
Whenever I engage in talks about Operation Mockingbird one name comes up every time. Anderson Cooper with CNN. His name is one of the most closely tied to Operation Mockingbird that I have found. There are numerous YouTube videos out there showing him being confronted on this topic and he always has the same reaction. Dismiss, deny, and belittle the person asking the question. Why? Ask me anything about my involvement in Operation Mockingbird and I would sit there and talk to you as an innocent person accused of being a part of this would do. There are many, many more out there that I will touch on in another article.
Another way of knowing our media is fake is the content in which they report on. We know our money is printed out of thin air, not backed by anything, and then loaned out, with interest. Why is this not leading off every news cycle daily? Addressing the Federal Reserve, especially in today’s economy, would quickly get an audit, if not abolished completely when the American people really know what our monetary system is about. Ironically, but by design, the Federal Reserve, or The Fed, is controlling the news through financing the main players and owners of the media.
How about undeclared wars? Why is this no leading the news cycle daily? We are a nation, in general, proud of our military and unite anytime we have to send our men and women overseas, so why not report on how these are illegal wars and not declared by Congress as the Constitution demands. Let’s not forget the troops swear an oath to the Constitution as well as the politicians sending them to war, so why are we not demanding they follow the document they swear to? Because many don’t even know what the Constitution says. That, too, is by design.
Look at the partisan platforms of the media outlets today. Depending on your political leanings is where and how you receive your news. If you are a Republican, you watch Fox News. Democrat, MSNBC, etc. Why and how did we allow this to happen? Media needs to be neutral. They need to tell us the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. When they take on a partisan stance they are helping perpetuate the division and even protecting the very elements they are supposed to be calling out. It’s not by accident that corruption has hit an all-time high and reporting on the corruption has hit an all-time low. It’s because of Operation Mockingbird.
It is very evident and clear that this C.I.A. program is not only still around, but thriving stronger than ever. We have the power to take it back, and we should take the moral authority to do just that. We are in dangerous times globally and what gets reported needs to be the truth, regardless who it offends. We can do this, and we can win. Only when we seek the truth and not partisan politics is when we will be free and informed. So get out there on your social media sites, blogs, radio shows, and activism activities and spread the truth. Spread it loud, spread it proudly, and spread it gently. We will win by being the change we want to see. Let’s start with posting facts, not satire. Learning the lessons and then going out and being the teacher. I am reminded this 5th of November that truth is what set people free in the now infamous movie V for Vendetta, not partisan politics. I look forward to seeing you out there and learning from you all. Let’s be the peaceful end to Operation Mockingbird.
At first glance you wouldn’t think these two have anything in common. And you would be right to think that especially since they shouldn’t be grouped in together. However, the two are more closely linked that you would think. Well, that’s not a fair statement. The more accurate statement should read something like this, “Big Pharma and guns are linked when it comes to mass shootings.” There that’s the most accurate way of tying the two together. What do I mean? Let’s look at several things.
What do the majority of mass shootings have in common other than they occur in gun free zones? Well we are finding that the gunmen are also on psychotropic medicine which greatly influences their decision making. Am I blaming the drug industry alone? No, of course not, but they can not be overlooked as we are seeing a mass increase in prescribed medicine to the public. We are in a time where Big Pharma and their influence is great in power. Just look at the television on any given night and count the pharmaceutical commercials pushing their products in the disguise of a more full life, a more productive life. Now during that same commercial count the number of side effects vs. the cause the drug is suppose to be treating. It’s mind boggling the number of side effects of using the drug vs. the symptoms that originally brought you to the need of the drug in the first place. In some cases it’s almost worth it to have the symptom and not the side effects of the prescribed medication.
While I am not, and do not claim to be a doctor or even a novice when it comes to medicine, I can not ignore the damaging effects that is plaguing us today with prescribed medicine. I always say, “If you go to your doctor and the first thing he doesn’t ask you is about your eating habits, then leave immediately cause that should be the first question of a health care physician.” It just seems like the first and only step nowadays is to check vitals, run some test, and finally prescribe the remedy through a magic pill. Why not look into the root of the cause like what we put into our bodies? We have a very complicated immune system that is designed to flush and fight many attacks that invade our bodies, but like anything else we need to take care of the immune system.
Now I am not against medicine at all. I see its benefits when prescribed and administered correctly. I just want the doctor and healthcare industry to be responsible to their patients, not Big Pharma. And unfortunately the latter seems to be the norm. I could write a whole article on Big Pharma, but that is not my purpose of this article. I want to address the concerns I have of the gun confiscation that seems to be looming and all aspects of the “mass shooting” epidemic we seem to find ourselves in today.
So back to the issue….Big Pharma vs. guns. First, why do I feel like there is a gun confiscation looming around the corner? I see the United Nations, along with the democratic party looking at every chance to pass new laws, regulations, and sanctions on the right to bear arms. Republicans aren’t exempt. While they seem to be vocal, they are not really pushing the 2nd amendment like we need them to. It is a coordinated effort and the talk on Capital Hill seems to back up my suspensions. Can gun control really make us safe? No, it can not. It will only lead to more victims because criminals will never lay down their weapons regardless what law(s) are passed. After all, isn’t there a law already making murder illegal? Of course there is and because they are criminals they will not abide by it. So any kind of gun control is only going to disarm law abiding citizens and make us a helpless victim to intruders of our family, home, and property.
How can we protect ourselves and still have a society that feels safe going to the mall? To school? Or even a movie? The evidence is overwhelming in support of a good guy with a gun stops or drastically reduces the impact a shooter makes. Isn’t that why we call the police when this sort of things happen in the first place? Because we believe he is a good guy with a gun? So it is very easy to dismiss the firearm as the problem when one takes agendas out of the way and looks at the evidence. One more point to make as far as guns being the problem. If guns were the problem then no one would leave a rifle range alive, or even a gun show. However, the opposite is fact. These shootings do not happen at rifle ranges or gun shows. They happen in gun free zones. Where self protection isn’t allowed.
How does Big Pharma fit into the equation? C.C.H.R. International wrote this in one of their articles – “At least 35 school shootings and/or school-related acts of violence have been committed by those taking or withdrawing from psychiatric drugs resulting in 169 wounded and 79 killed (in other school shootings, information about their drug use was never made public—neither confirming or refuting if they were under the influence of prescribed drugs). Another article written by Natural News states the following “Nearly every mass shooting incident in the last twenty years, and multiple other instances of suicide and isolated shootings all share one thing in common, and it’s not the weapons used. The overwhelming evidence points to the signal largest common factor in all of these incidents is the fact that all of the perpetrators were either actively taking powerful psychotropic drugs or had been at some point in the immediate past before they committed their crimes.”
There are tons more research and studies that all say the same thing in regards to the mental capacity of the individual on these drugs. Would making more gun free zones help? Would stricter legislation regarding firearms change this? No, of course it wouldn’t. Circling back to the point I made earlier, it would be treating a symptom and not the cause. When I really started looking into this connection I was stunned that this wasn’t the first course of action before we even talked about the tool (gun) that the individual used.
Why isn’t the mainstream media reporting these facts at every chance? Remember those pharmaceutical ads I was referring to earlier? Well they are also the sponsor of most, if not all, news channels and as we know, they will not bite the hand that feeds them. Even at our expense. I do agree it is past time to stop burying our dead due to senseless violence, but disarming law abiding citizens, or even heavily regulating the firearms industry will have no positive effect on the number of victims. Just ask the residence of New York, New Orleans, Detroit, Chicago where gun laws are the strictest, but gun deaths are higher than the nations average.
In conclusion we can minimize the deadly cost of gun violence by properly diagnosing, prescribing, and following up with healthcare officials. I am not placing the blame on them solely, but the evidence supports the claim that we, as a society, are over medicated. Watch what we put into our bodies and what comes out will be benefited. Watch who and how we trust our bodies to and take responsibility on our own health at a level we can control.
