Unsolved killing of DNC staffer has no one talking
by Alicia Powe www.wnd.com June 5th, 2017
WASHINGTON — WND has asked 125 members of Congress to weigh in on the unsolved murder of DNC staffer Seth Rich, and not a single representative has agreed to address the case.
Only five members replied to WND’s request for an interview. All five declined.
The only member of Congress who has gone on the record about the slain DNC staffer is Rep. Blake Farenthold, R-Texas, who has been attacked for speaking out.
Rich, 27, was murdered in Washington, D.C., on July 10, 2016, near his apartment in an affluent neighborhood. He was shot twice in the back, and his wallet, credit cards, watch and phone were left in his possession. The Metropolitan Police Department has described it as a “botched robbery.”
Private investigators, however, have claimed there is evidence Rich was the source WikiLeaks used to obtain thousands of Democratic National Committee emails released on the eve of the party’s presidential nominating convention last July. The emails, indicating the party was manipulating the primary race in favor of Hillary Clinton, led to the resignation of DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
In an appearance on CNN, Farenthold called for a federal investigation of the murder and said the DNC email leak may have been an “inside job.”
“My fear is our constant focusing on the Russians is deflecting away from some other things that we need to be investigating,” he said. “There’s still some question as to whether the intrusion of the DNC server was an insider job or whether or not it was the Russians.”
In an interview with the Corpus Christi Caller-Times, Farenthold doubled down on his call for a special investigation, demanding Rich’s murder be approached with the same aggression as the review of purported Russian interference during the 2016 election.
“[The Rich murder] should be part of the ongoing investigation into alleged Russian interference in the election, because that’s an alternative theory that deserves being looked at,” the congressman said
The theory that Rich was killed for leaking DNC information, Farenthold insisted, is “as credible as the anonymous sources being cited in the (former FBI Director James) Comey and Russian stories against President Trump.”
Part 1 developed the following: Hillary’s campaign, lax on cybersecurity and working with the DNC to make sure Sanders did not have a chance of winning, invited multiple attacks from both hackers on the outside and from leakers on the inside.
Part 2 makes clear the multiple hacks and multiple leaks that plagued Hillary’s 2016 presidential campaign came from multiple sources.
The breakthrough in this series of articles is the attempt to apply intelligence analytical techniques to sort out the various known cybersecurity attacks on the Democrats during the 2016 presidential campaign to determine the rogue agent responsible for each separate known cybersecurity attack.
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Hillary’s 2016 presidential campaign was hit by so many hack attacks and so many leaks, the CSI problem is almost impossible to decipher.
By election day, Hillary Clinton’s electronic campaign began to resemble a corpse killed by multiple gunshot wounds.
The pattern of wounds upon wounds evident in the corpse were so combined and so confused, it is today hard to tell – if not impossible – how precisely many shooters there were or who fired the fatal round.
To sort this out, we begin with the first hack attack on Clinton emails, the hack that began with Guccifer in March 2013.
March 2013: Guccifer, the first hacker
In March 2013, a Romanian hacker Marcel Lazar, who went by the username “Guccifer,” a combination of “Gucci” and “Lucifer,” shocked the world by the revelation Hillary Clinton had utilized a private email server while secretary of state. On March 15, 2013, the Smoking Gun broke the story, disclosing that Guccifer had spent the past several months “breaking into the e-mail accounts of family, friends, and political allies of the Bush family,” only to “cross party lines” and illegally access the AOL account of a former senior White House advisor to former President Bill Clinton, then 64-year-old Sidney Blumenthal, a longtime confident of Hillary Clinton. Guccifer entertained himself by reading the cache of Blumenthal emails that went back to 2005, with emails sent to “an array of Washington insiders, including political operatives, journalists, and government officials.”
When he realized some of the emails between Blumenthal and Hillary involved an email address Hillary used, firstname.lastname@example.org — causing Guccifer a “WOW” moment when he realized the initials matched Clinton’s maiden name, Hillary Diane Rodham – and the email address “clintonemail.com” revealed the use of a private, unsecured email server. During an interview given in Romania in 2015, Guccifer then in prison commented to a reporter that he accessed in Hillary’s hacked emails memos that Clinton got as secretary of state, with CIA briefings attached. “I used to read her memos for six or seven hours then I’d get up and do the gardening in the yard,” Guccifer said.
Guccifer never published a trove of Clinton emails, tending to be more malicious than politically motivated, as demonstrated in March 2013, when he hacked Colin Powell’s AOL email account and defaced Powell’s Facebook page with an anti-Bush diatribe. In June 2013, after Clinton had left office as secretary of state, the private server was moved from the Clintons’ Chappaqua home to a data center in northern New Jersey, where it was maintained by Platte River Networks in Denver; in early 2014, Platte River Network staff uploads Hillary’s emails to a Gmail account and then transfers them over to a Platte River Network server. That Hillary had used a private server at the State Department was largely ignored until the New York Times ran a front page article on March 2, 2015, reporting that Clinton had turned over 55,000 pages of emails from her personal server to comply with federal record-keeping practices as required by the Federal Records Act.
In the period March 25-31, 2015, Platte River Staff member Paul Combetta realized he forgot to wipe Hillary’s email archive from the Platte River Network server, as he had been advised to do by Hillary aide Monica Hanley the previous December. Now desperate, Combetta decided to use BleachBit software to wipe Hillary’s emails from the Platte River Network server, despite a subpoena Hillary received from the House Select Committee on Benghazi on March 4, 2015, instructing Clinton to preserve and deliver all emails from her personal servers.
The thousands of Hillary Clinton’s State Department emails that have been made public have resulted not from Guccifer’s hacking efforts in 2013, or from the private email server Pagliano set up for Clinton in Chappaqua, or from the Platte River Network server) to which Hillary’s State Department-era emails were transferred. All Hillary Clinton emails from her term as Secretary of State that are public today have come either from Judicial Watch FOIA requests, or from various subpoenas Clinton was issued in Congressional investigations.
The Clinton emails that have been made public were archived as they were being released on the Judicial Watch website and on the U.S. Department of State website.
Guccifer was arrested in Romania on Jan. 22, 2014, and convicted to four years in prison, where he remained until he was extradited to the United States in March 2016 to face U.S. federal criminal charges. On Sept. 1, 2016, a U.S. district judge in Alexandria, Virginia, sentenced Guccifer to four years in federal prison, after he pleaded guilty to one count each of aggravated identity theft and unauthorized access to a protected computer. What this timeline makes clear is that the Podesta emails dating through May 25, 2015, published by WikiLeaks starting in October 2016, could not possibly have resulted from Guccifer’s 2013 hacking efforts, if only because Guccifer/Marcel Lazar has been in prison non-stop since he was arrested in Romania in January 2014. It should also be clear that the source of the Podesta emails published by WikiLeaks in October 2016 could not have resulted from someone hacking the Pagliano server. The Pagliano server remained unplugged in storage in New Jersey from June 2013 until the FBI seized it in August 2015. In late-March 2015, the Platte River Network servers were scrubbed of all Hillary emails making it impossible for Podesta emails dated in May 2015 to have been hacked from that source.
The “Russian Hack” and Guccifer 2.0
On June 14, 2016, the Washington Post reported Russian government hackers had penetrated the DNC computer network, gaining access to the entire database of opposition research on GOP candidates – an article that cited unnamed “U.S. officials” who claimed the intrusion into the DNC was one of several targeting “American political organizations,” including the computer networks of the Clinton and the Trump campaign “targeted by Russian spies,” as well as computers of various GOP PACs.
“I completely rule out a possibility that the(Russian) government or the government bodies have been involved in this,” Dmitry Peskov, the Kremlin spokesman told Reuters in Moscow, on the same date. The next day, June 15, 2016, cybersecurity firm CrowdStrike, Inc. posted a notice on its website that two separate Russian intelligence-affiliated adversaries began hacking DNC computers in May 2016.
The CrowdStrike posting noted that on June 15, 2016, a blog post to a WordPress site “authored by an individual using the moniker Guccifer 2.0” claimed credit for breaching the DNC. “Whether or not this posting is part of a Russian Intelligence disinformation campaign, we are exploring the documents’ authenticity and origin,” CrowdStrike commented. “Regardless, these claims do nothing to lessen our findings relating to the Russian government’s involvement, portions of which we have documented for the public and the greater security community,” CrowdStrike concluded. In the June 15, 2016 posting on WordPress, Guccifer 2.0 revealed he had advance warning of the CrowdStrike conclusions ready to be posted the next day. “Worldwide known cyber security company CrowdStrike announced that the Democratic National Committee (DNC) servers had been hacked by ‘sophisticated’ hacker groups,” Guccifer 2.0 wrote under the heading “DNC’s Servers Hacked by Lone Hacker.” Guccifer 2.0 bragged that hacking the DNC’s servers was “easy, very easy.”
“Guccifer (Marcel Lazar) may have been the first one who penetrated Hillary Clinton’s and other Democrats’ mail servers,” Guccifer 2.0 noted. “But he certainly wasn’t the last. No wonder any other hacker could easily get access to the DNC’s servers.” Then Guccifer 2.0 bragged: “Shame on CrowdStrike: Do you think I’ve been in the DNC’s networks for almost a year and saved only 2 documents? Do you really believe it? Here are just a few docs from the many thousands I extracted when hacking into the DNC’s networks.” On June 15, 2016, Guccifer 2.0 published on WordPress an opposition research report the DNC wrote on Donald Trump, marked “Confidential,” and dated Dec. 19, 2015; several pages of donor lists, suggesting Guccifer 2.0 may have breached the NGP database; but no emails. Guccifer 2.0 claimed he sent the main part of the hacked documents, “thousands of files and mails,” to WikiLeaks, bragging that WikiLeaks “will publish them soon.” From June 15, 2015, through Oct. 18, 2016, Guccifer 2.0 published a series of documents, making it clear he had extensive access to DNC internal memorandums and donor lists.
But what was missing in the Guccifer 2.0 publication of DNC hacked documents were emails, suggesting Guccifer 2.0 had not penetrated the DNC email server, or the private email archives of John Podesta and other Clinton campaign officials.
Also absent from the Guccifer 2.0 publications of DNC hacked documents were any documents prepared by the Clinton campaign.
The Guccifer 2.0 controversy flared again when the Wall Street Journal published on May 25, 2017, published an article claiming Guccifer 2.0 had sent Aaron Nevins, a GOP Republican consultant in Florida, 2.5 gigabytes of Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (housed in the same building with the DNC) documents, some of which Nevins published on a blog HelloFLA.com that Nevins ran using a pseudonym.
Nevins told the Wall Street Journal he set up a Dropbox account “so whoever was using the Guccifer 2.0 name could send large amounts of material.”
This episode confirms that Guccifer 2.0 had hacked only the DNC computers, the donor data in the VAN computer servers in Massachusetts, and the data in the NPG computer servers in Washington. Guccifer 2.0 confirms this in a post to his WordPress site posted on Jan. 12, 2017, in which Guccifer 2.0 wrote the following: “I already explained at The Future of Cyber Security Europe conference that took place in London in last September, I had used a different way to breach into the DNC network. I found a vulnerability in the NGP VAN software installed in the DNC system.” Note also that Guccifer 2.0 is a different person than the first Guccifer, Marcel Lazar, whose hacking capabilities have been severely limited during his continuing imprisonment that began with his arrest in Romania in January 2014.
Give that the WikiLeaks publication of hacked documents that began in October 2016 – the hacked document dump the Clinton campaign, the FBI, and the U.S. intelligence agencies want to blame on Russia – consists almost entirely of emails from Podesta and others related to the Clinton campaign and/or the Clinton Foundation, it is extremely unlikely Guccifer 2.0 was the source, regardless how many assertions U.S. intelligence makes that Guccifer 2.0 was a Russian agent – something Guccifer 2.0 continues to deny.
U.S. intelligence blames WikiLeaks on Russians
The CrowdStrike post dated June 15, 2016, explained their experts had identified the “sophisticated adversaries” attacking the DNC computers as “Cozy Bear” and “Fancy Bear” – both identified by CrowdStrike as “Russian-based.” On Jan. 6, 2017, the office of the Director of National Intelligence released a report entitled, “Background to ‘Assessing Russian Activities and Intentions in Recent U.S. Elections’: The Analytic Process and Cyber Incident Attribution.” This report concluded “with high confidence” that Russian military intelligence “used the Guccifer 2.0 persona” to release the Podesta files to WikiLeaks, but the report also admitted the identification of the origin of a cybersecurity attack was “difficult” based only on “tradecraft” that relies on circumstantial evidence at best, presuming a hacker leaves a signature, such that cyberattacks like “Cozy Bear” and “Fancy Bear” can be reliably be attributed to Russian intelligence operatives. On March 7, 2017, WikiLeaks released 8,761 documents on the CIA’s “global covert hacking program” that included documents from a project called “Umbrage” proving the CIA could launch “false flag” cyberattacks and make them look as if they originated from other countries, such as Russia. “The CIA’s Remote Devices Branch’s UMBRAGE group collects and maintains a substantial library of attack techniques ‘stolen’ from malware produced in other states including the Russian Federation,” WikiLeaks noted.
“When UMBRAGE and related projects the CIA cannot only increase its total number of attack types but also misdirect attribution by leaving behind the ‘fingerprints’ of the groups that the attack techniques were stolen from,” WikiLeaks continued. In December 2016, after Clinton had lost the election, John Podesta said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that the first time he was contacted by the FBI was two days after Oct. 7, 2016, the date WikiLeaks started dropping his emails.
If the FBI had no reason to believe the then-known hacks of Clinton’s private email server and the DNC had also breached Podesta’s email files until after WikiLeaks began publishing Podesta’s emails, this strongly suggests the person who leaked Podesta’s emails was not Guccifer, Guccifer 2.0, “Cozy Bear,” or “Fancy Bear,” but a separate and distinct incident, likely carried off by someone not previously identified.
Yet, to date, the U.S. intelligence agencies have insisted on lumping together all hacks of the Democrats during the 2016 presidential, blaming the Russians for every hacking incident, regardless of the content released by the hack or the target data source known to have been hacked. What seems likely is the FBI had no idea Podesta emails had been hacked (or leaked) until WikiLeaks started publishing them.
Yet, despite this intelligence failure, U.S. intelligence agencies took their fallback position, concluding the Russians must have hacked Podesta’s emails too.
On Dec. 30, 2016, after the presidential election was over, then-President Obama took a step to implant the “Russian interference” meme into the U.S. mainstream media, by expelling 35 Russians from the United States and ordered sweeping new sanctions as retaliation, stressing that U.S. intelligence services believe Russia had ordered cyberattacks on the DNC. Interestingly, there was an earlier expulsion of Russian diplomats during the 2016 presidential convention. On July 8, 2016, the Obama administration expelled two Russian diplomats from the United States supposedly in retaliation for a Russian police guard who had tackled a U.S. diplomat outside the American Embassy in Moscow in a scuffle that was captured on security footage and broadcast on Russian television. Anonymous, in a video released May 24, 2015, provides an alternative explanation why these two diplomats were expelled. Anonymous claimed Mikhail Fradkov, the head of Russia’s SVR intelligence agency from Oct. 6, 2006 to Oct. 5, 2016, authorized an emergency contact with the U.S. State Department on July 7, 2016, to reveal the details of Seth Rich’s breach of Podesta’s emails and the subsequent danger to his life, only to find themselves expelled immediately.
Fox News host Sean Hannity got suspended over the Memorial Day holiday following a series of broadcasts beginning March 12, 2017, in which Hannity appeared to be advancing what is being termed the “WikiLeaks’ conspiracy theory.” This theory suggests U.S. intelligence agencies hacked Hillary’s email server, the DNC, the VGP-VAN database, and Podesta’s emails, in a “false flag” that used tradecraft leaving cyberattack “fingerprints” that traced back to the Russians.
On the broadcast March 12, 2017, two former U.S. intelligence operatives, Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer and former NSA official William Binney, told Hannity that retired NSA intelligence officers were responsible for hacking the DNC. “Sean, we did it [hack the DNC], not me, but our guys—former members of NSA, retired intelligence officers used these tools to break in there and get the information out. That’s what the Democrats don’t want to talk about because it doesn’t fit their narrative,” Shaffer explained. The U.S. Intelligence agencies have assumed the Russian government hacked the Democrats because Vladimir Putin wanted Donald Trump to win. But there is well-documented proof the Russians had been paying Hillary Clinton through the Clinton Foundation for her decision as secretary of state to support the Frank Giustra ploy that resulted in Russia getting control of 20 percent of the uranium in the United States, while Russia was using a shell company in the Netherlands to pay Podesta in stock for supporting the “technology transfer” to Russia the Obama administration had authorized under Secretary Clinton’s “reset” initiative. How would Russia know in advance that hacking Hillary, Podesta, and the DNC would turn up sufficiently damaging documentary evidence to throw the election for Trump?
Why would Putin want Trump to be president, when the Russians had invested millions during the Obama administration to establish their blackmail potential to control the actions of both Clinton and Podesta, starting the minute Hillary took the oath of office as president of the United States? Despite all the U.S. intelligence and Democratic Party hoopla, the fact remains there is no irrefutable proof the Russians hacked Hillary Clinton or the DNC during the 2016 presidential campaign, nor is there any proof the Russians accessed John Podesta’s email account.
So far, the “Russian Collusion” meme implicating Trump in a supposed Russian hacking scheme is nothing more than a lame Clinton excuse for losing. In the final analysis, if Hillary and the DNC had not conspired to steal the nomination from Sanders, and if Podesta’s emails were not so filled with dark brooding and scheming (often aimed at HRC herself), it would not have mattered their documents were hacked, leaked, and published. The dark, dirty truth is that Hillary Clinton could not sustain the revelation to the American people of the truth Podesta and the DNC spoke in private, almost every day, as they schemed to put Hillary in the White House. Hillary even today refuses to acknowledge the problems that continue to dog her White House ambitions, ranging from Benghazi, to the Clinton Foundation, to her handling of classified material transmitted over her private email server, to name just a few.
The war we are fighting is much bigger than anyone can imagine. Traditional WW-I and WW-II were easily defined by borders and the enemy identified. Fighting this enemy is a fight for humanity and involves everyone from school age till death.
Today, corruption and evil have surrounded this planet like a plaque that cannot be eradicated. Our faith has been shaken to it’s core by an enemy that wants to cleanse this earth of “infidels,” a weaponized enemy unleashed by globalist elites for a One World Government.
The agenda has been around for thousands of years and what we are witnessing….is the horrifying climax to an end, but if we believe biblical revelation, a new dawn will follow and humanity will be free again.
Armageddon is very close and growing like a cancer that cannot be contained. The New World Order is forcing the population around the world to accept (our) fate by creating wars between ourselves, with other so-called religions, and the need for governments to save us from ourselves.The “Police State” is growing and our freedoms and liberties are diminishing…all by design.Rogue nations want to nuke America and their neighbors while politicians battle each other over fabricated lies in-order to drive an agenda the direction the globalists want.
A New World Order CANNOT arise from love and appreciation of others, but requires wars, economic collapse, famines, and disregard for truth. A wide range of conditions and situations are constantly in play to cause all nations on this planet to accept a loss of sovereignty while taking control of their citizens, resources, but as long as THEY themselves (at the top of each government) continue to benefit financially, while remaining in power until the One World Government decides otherwise. These traitors use their citizens to gain political power, but are now showing their loyalty to the “Deep State” cabal. Evil has no favorites and those that help submit this planet to the onslaught of enslavement and eugenics will ultimately find themselves among us in the trenches.
Fighting ISIS / al Qaida, or containing North Korea or Iran, is not going to stop the New World Order. The enemy globalists have selected worldwide terror as the mechanism for enslavement, using the ideology from a dark past that cannot be changed by war or , therefore….the war on terror is the globalist elite’s ace-in-the-hole. The god that ISIS and al Qaida follow is NOT the God of truth and love. Their god is the illuminati death cult that began millenniums ago. Their followers are entrenched with lies and deception and willing to die, as their children and their children’s children will continue until the end is complete.
Humanity and the extermination thereof, by the globalist agenda of eugenics to wipe humanity off this planet for prior colonization of their own kind, is underway….. We see their eugenics’ plans in most everything we are involved with…..be it the air we breath, the food we eat, the water we drink, weaponized diseases…including cancer, the profitable killer. (Note: Research how many doctors with a cure for cancer have been assassinated) They’re (still) spraying the atmosphere with barium and aluminum nano-particles (geo-engineering) known to cause cancer and Alzheimer’s, fluoridating city water, genetically modifying food, sabotaging processed meat with chemicals, and pumping questionable vaccines into the newborn at an alarming rate.
Their eugenics plan will continue to wipe-out generations of families and when needed….THEY will launch their thermo-nuclear wars.
The New World Order “cabal” numbering approximately 13 families own most of the planet and have the best technology available for life extension through artificial intelligence. In conjunction with evil elements in other dimensions, they receive their marching orders with promises of “off world life and power” they hope to achieve by being obedient followers of the death cult. Their centuries of maintaining “clean bloodlines” by incest has backfired, and their actions are those of a “mad scientist” on steroids.
These families live in their own virtual prisons, surrounded by body guards and have everything done for them. THEY cannot venture into a town unnoticed, because they find (us) peasants repulsive and dangerous. THEY want us killed….. THEY also want to take your property, your country and all resources….. But first….THEY need us to help complete their take-over and to do that, they need to brainwash every human they can by deceptive information based on lies from early school age to adult. Altering history and defining what is acceptable or not, is being planted in the minds of those that are ignorant of historical facts. An example is the destruction of Confederate statues and the banning of the Confederate flag “because is represents hate” a fallacy based-on “slavery” that had absolutely nothing to do with the (first) Civil War and was only injected during the latter days by President Lincoln of whom needed a new agenda to win political support for a war the Union was losing.
Supporters of the New World Order agenda(s) have most every college hoodwinked into accepting the Socialist / Marxist plan, and using terms like “Progressive” and “Social Justice” to intrigue young minds into a trendy revolution of hate and race baiting tactics, is the new norm across the planet. The corporate media feeds the Liberal Fascists with the ammo they need to counter attack Conservative ideology, thus giving the enemy, i.e., ISIS and al Qaida “aid and comfort,” including ANTIFA, Black Lives Matter and the radical Hispanic Reconquista movement to take-back the southwest U.S. states….not for Mexico, but for themselves. The fight for our freedom is now becoming a daily event, watching our front line conservative media being attacked weekly. Major news hosts are being fired and lawsuits are flying, while the real truth is being hidden from the general public. Those of us that no the truth behind the scenes are targeted and if we lose our front line patriot media force….will face trouble in the near future.Sharia Law is creeping into America and over-taking Europe, a means by which the globalists can fulfill the agenda for absolute control of humanity. The open border agenda allows for maneuvering an enemy into countries worldwide. The “estimated 1%” of the 5,000 plus refugees entering Europe (so far) are considered “Islamic Terrorists,” according to Homeland Security analysts.
Opposition to Sharia Law is labelled “racist and Islamic phobic” and the brainwashed Liberal Fascist are willing to condemn free speech while at the same time…adopt the false teachings of the Islamic prophet Muhammed. Liberal western women are promoting the vail of silence, the trans genders and gays are marching for equality for “all” while denying the oppression that Sharia Law has hidden (and ready) for each and every one of them. The Liberal Left Fascists believe that Communism is the solution for their own mental crisis.
The big question for many of us watching this incredible display of absolute stupidity…..will some westerners become “Jihadi suicide bombers” for an ideology that condemns then anyway? I would venture to say YES ! The globalists welcome chaos and mass murder in America as they do in Europe while the most outspoken against this evil are fined and/or imprisoned. The war on humanity is not going to be solved with diplomacy or wide spread extermination of radical Islam by conventional warfare.
We need to accept the fact, the New World Order (Illuminati) will collapse the world economy, create wars, divide populations, cause civil wars, and when all nations on this planet are in compliance, the final stage of Armageddon will exterminate humanity in mass while those of us prepared and willing to fight, will be the hold-outs in various pockets of resistance across the northwest.
Survival is the main reason to resist at every level and NEVER surrender your (best) weapons. Knowing who your friends are and who to trust will be tough, but what else is left for us to do when the planet succumbs to an evil god purported to “return” in our life time, according to Islamic teachings…. followed by Jesus Christ (or spiritual gods) to (later) take-down the New World Order when “peace will prevail for a thousand years.”To win this spiritual war against evil, the world must crush under it’s own demise first, and humanity must prevail…even if there are only 500 million left on the planet, a number the illuminati believe will survive. (See the Georgia Guide stones)
Our reward is in the after life and what we do today, or tomorrow and in the next few years will be reviewed by spiritual identities we finally meet. If WE bow now to what is coming, we will face denial of a righteous afterlife without respect or dignity. When your grandchildren ask as to what grandpa did during the spiritual war of the world, what will be said. We are in a spiritual battle and the New World Order (spiritual war) need each one of us to help them by begging for a One World Government to save us, a false offering of compromises and safety for a peaceful existence. In the meanwhile, we either comply or resist….. If we comply, we will be forced to board the weekly school bus to the local Mosque for Sharia Law training and Quran teachings of (tolerance), and women will submit to Islamic tradition while the husband will turn-in his weapons. In America, Communism will resemble the former Eastern Germany and today’s Communist Cuba….every action and discussion between people will be monitored. But isn’t that evident now by an out-of-control NSA / CIA?
If we don’t comply, (we) will either be rounded-up and transported to re-education camps and likely exterminated anyway….or beheaded on a street corner.
Staying ahead of their game is paramount and keeping the Liberty Movement informed is going to be tough. Alternative Media is under attack, and as the “Deep State” continues to obscure the facts and assassinations are exposed soon, with the death of DNC staffer Seth Rich… implicating the DNC, Hillary and Podesta, the chaos in America will expand exponentially. The “crack-down” is about to begin and we must be vigilant. War is here and it’s just a matter of months (or in one to two years) before patriots will have to exercise our 2nd amendment “rules of engagement” for changing a rogue government if and when the “Deep State” destroy President Trump. Major cities will be “hell holes” and finding a safe area by then will be difficult, therefore…think about the extent of your own involvement and plan accordingly.

May 25th, 2017 http://allnewspipeline.com/How_Quickly_It_Can_All_Change.php
– THIS Is Why We Prepare: ‘It Was So Sudden, It Threw Everyone In To Complete Chaos’
In this new story over at the Yucatan Times they report a mega-blackout recently struck the entire Yucatan Peninsula, casting nearly 2 million people into darkness and bringing much of the Peninsula to a standstill. Home to the tourist resort Cancun, everyday activities were quickly brought to a standstill for millions, leaving businesses shuttered and vacationers ‘stuck’ on the beach and while officials attributed the mega-blackout to a ‘transmission line failure’, communications services such as telephone and internet were also down, along with air conditioning units, in temperatures that approached 100+ degrees.
And while a transmission line failure easily beats an EMP when it comes to overall damage as the electricity was soon restored for 70% or more of those who had suddenly lost it, the one comment seen below left on the ‘mega-blackout’ story sums up so much of what we’re now witnessing in the world today. Proving to us how quickly ‘disaster’ can strike and how the total lack of preparedness for such an event hampered most people there, we can also read so much more into it.
The main theme of the comment seen below could also apply to: the recent cowardly terror attack in Manchester, England, the declaration of martial law in the Philippines after ISIS-linked groups attacked and took over part of the city of Marawi, the false alarm panic of those in New Jersey who had been mistakingly notified of a nearby nuclear plant meltdown, the sudden ending of the life of Seth Rich, the 1991 disintegration of the Soviet Union and to what many believe will be the results of the coming ‘4th turning’ in America…destruction is ahead if the authors of this story are correct.
“How easily we can lose it all! …It was so sudden, it threw everyone in to complete chaos. Unexpected totally.”
While much of the mainstream media went into meltdown mode over President Trump advisor’s Stephen K. Bannon’s strong interest in the book ‘The 4th Turning’ as it forecasts the sudden fall of the US through a ‘catalyzing event’, the book is a study of generational history that goes back hundreds of years and sees a series of patterns and cycles that put America on a timeline towards peril. In the only video below featuring Sgt Report with Squawker reporter Michael Hart, they discuss the ‘4th Turning’ and the danger ahead for America that could leave us a completely different country than we are now within a few years.
First, from the NY Times on Stephen Bannon’s interest in the book “The 4th Turning”:
Stephen K. Bannon has great admiration for a provocative but disputed theory of history that argues that the United States is nearing a crisis that could be just as disruptive and catastrophic as the most seminal global turning points of the last 250 years.
This prophecy, which is laid out in a 1997 book, “The Fourth Turning,” by two amateur historians, makes the case that world events unfold in predictable cycles of roughly 80 years each that can be divided into four chapters, or turnings: growth, maturation, entropy and destruction. Western societies have experienced the same patterns for centuries, the book argues, and they are as natural and necessary as spring, summer, fall and winter.
‘Winter Is Coming,’ and We’d Better Be Prepared
History is seasonal, and winter is coming. … The very survival of the nation will feel at stake. Sometime before the year 2025, America will pass through a great gate in history, one commensurate with the American Revolution, Civil War, and twin emergencies of the Great Depression and World War II. The risk of catastrophe will be high. The nation could erupt into insurrection or civil violence, crack up geographically, or succumb to authoritarian rule.
The “Fourth Turning” authors, William Strauss and Neil Howe, started using that phrase before it became a pop culture buzzword courtesy of HBO’s “Game of Thrones.” But, as the authors point out, some winters are mild. And sometimes they arrive late. The best thing to do, they say, is to prepare for what they wrote will be “America’s next rendezvous with destiny.”
At ANP we have long believed that the best thing we can do is to prepare ourselves for any possible emergency or disaster and find great wisdom in the author’s assertions as anyone who has been paying close attention knows, America has entered a very dangerous period of time. We also take heart in these Bannon comments from the NY Times story:
Mr. Bannon said: “Everything President Trump is doing — all of it — is to get ahead of or stop any potential crisis.”
Knowing that danger possibly lies ahead is the first critical step needed to be taken to prepare for it and as recent and historical events prove, ‘life as we know it’ can change in an instant.
It’s one thing to prep for the next hurricane or tornado or economic calamity. There are a lot of really basic skills and supplies that will get you through those situations, and pretty much anyone can acquire them. But the scenarios that are truly difficult to prepare for, are the ones that involve the total collapse of our society for any given period of time. That’s because surviving those scenarios requires you as an individual, to pick up the slack of everyone else in society.
The globalists claim that reforming the very nature of capitalism will be needed to combat the rise of populism and nationalism. Following the global financial crisis, the report highlights the massive inequality gap in growth in developed countries. It also mentions that over the next several years technology could cause a catastrophic social change due to automation entirely wiping out jobs.
“This points to the need for reviving economic growth, but the growing mood of anti-establishment populism suggests we may have passed the stage where this alone would remedy fractures in society: reforming market capitalism must also be added to the agenda,” it said in its latest Global Risks Report.
“The combination of economic inequality and political polarization threatens to amplify global risks, fraying the social solidarity on which the legitimacy of our economic and political systems rests,” it added.
At the helm of the Trends Research Institute, Gerald Celente returns with comments on gold and US equities. Geopolitical events are escalating amid saber rattling with Syria and North Korea – such events oftentimes result in market trends with key implications for global investors. Although the post-election rally in US shares is impressive, a reaction is necessary to sustain the upward momentum. Still, with sluggish retail sales via the “Retail Apocalypse,” Wall Street may continue to rally while Main Street stagnates.
Global currency volatility is improving the appeal of alternatives, such as gold and Bitcoin. Once the yellow metal crosses $1,400, Gerald Celente anticipates a new bull rally will drive the precious metal above the former 2011 peak to $2,000 an ounce. The Trends Journal compares cannabis legalization to 1933 and the end of prohibition. For instance, Canada recently decriminalized cannabis and many US states allow recreational / medicinal usage. Colorado is earning more tax revenue on a medicinal herb than on toxic potent potables. Gerald Celente and the host question why yet another tiny impoverished county with millions of starving, honest, hardworking souls, is the target of the world’s most potent military force.
Historically, when globalization goes into reverse or in other words collapses; the economy does too. Looking through the history of the years before World War One, a similarity emerges.
Federal Reserve policy has literally set the country up for economic collapse, and though the central bank has been very creative in making the impossible work, and putting off financial disaster, nothing can hold back the flood forever. Experts say economic collapse is imminent and stock market crash will happen within the next 18-20 months.
Unfortunately, it looks like Donald Trump will be blamed for the next financial crisis that he didn’t cause. Just like everyone blamed Obama for the financial collapse in 2009, this time, Trump will unfairly get the blame.
If Ron Paul is correct, the economic collapse is here. The second financial bubble is going to soon burst, and there’s nothing anyone can do about it. That’s because, as Paul stated, the Federal Reserve has set up the American economy for financial collapse for printing trillions of dollars back in 2008 and 2009.
“The Federal Reserve’s policies of printing trillions of dollars back in ’08-09 have locked into place a serious financial crisis at some point in our future,”
Going so far as to intimate the financial collapse will occur at least some time in the next two years. The economic crisis is unavoidable, and even Donald Trump can’t stop it.
The concept of government power is a strange and complex cipher. The existence of governments has always been predicated on assumptions of necessity, but few societies have ever truly considered what those necessities might be. What is government actually good for? What do they do that is so important? And, what happens when a government fails in the roles and duties that a culture deems vital? We tend to view government as an inevitability of life, but the fact is, government is NOT a force of nature, it is a creation of man, and it can be dismantled by men just as easily as it can be established.
In America, many people see government as an extension of the Republic, or even the source, and an animal that feeds at the behest of the common citizen. An often heard argument against the idea of drastic change or even rebellion within the establishment system is the assertion that the government “is us”. That it is made of Americans, by Americans, and for Americans. That there is no separation between the public, and the base of power. This is, of course, a childish and fantastical delusion drawn from a complete lack of understanding as to how our system really operates today. How many people out there who make this argument really believe at their very core that they have any legitimate influence over the actions of the state?
I wager not many…
At bottom, to cling to the lie that the government as it stands is a construct of the people is an act of pure denial designed to help the lost masses cope with underlying feelings of utter powerlessness.
Unfortunately, the U.S. government has shown clearly through word and action that its concerns are not with the average American, and that its loyalties rest with decidedly smaller and more elite interest groups. When elections once meant to dissuade political abuse become a false paradigm tool for the maximization of tyranny, have we not lost our voice as a society? When any government decides it is no longer concerned with the freedom and prosperity of a nation, no matter how righteous that government claims to be, we MUST, as citizens, ask ourselves whether that government is still useful to us, and what kind of power it should be allowed to wield. It is a dereliction of our duty not just as Americans but as human beings to simply treat government as a realm outside of our control or concern. It is lazy. It is dangerous. It could very well be disastrous. Government should answer to us, now and forever.
As the new millennium stampedes forward, however, it appears that the intended roles of the American dynamic have been reversed. The progression of the past decade has seen a hailstorm of legislation and executive orders that impede personal liberties and erode Constitutional protections in place for centuries. So many trails towards totalitarianism have been blazed recently that it is becoming difficult to track them all, and yet, I do not think many in our country have asked themselves what this means to their future. What kind of rights are you ready to hand over to government? How many aspects of your life should the establishment be able to dictate? How much freedom are you willing to give away?
While pondering these questions, each man and woman should also take into account the powers that those in government THINK they deserve. What have they asked for lately? What have they taken without permission? Here is just a short list of the more detrimental declarations of authority attempted over the past decade along with the pieces of legislation and executives orders used to make them “all legal”…
The Power To Invade Your Privacy
The U.S. government has long held at least a private belief that it should be allowed access to every aspect of a citizens personal life. In the past, the excuse of criminal suspicion was a standard rationalization, but this expanded beyond the targeting of individuals to broader surveillance of the populace as a whole with the advent of the drug war. Financial records especially became subject to government perusal without warrant and generally without any criminal charges filed.
This trampling of the 4th Amendment over a fabrication of a “war” on substances that by all rights should be legal anyway was just a taste of what was to come. With the explosion of the war on terror (another fabricated conflict), the application of mass surveillance became standardized. The Patriot Acts and the FISA bill, both upheld by so called “Republican” and “Democratic” presidents, have opened the door for centralized electronic spying in the name of “national security”. Never before has the world seen such an unbridled assault on the private lives of common citizens. The big brother grids of the Soviet era are child’s play compared to the data mining of the 21st century, and this tyranny is made possible by the marriage of government and corporate interests, working in tandem to ensure an ever tightening net.
The usual ill conceived debate point for such surveillance is the claim that it is “for the greater good”, for our own safety, and that if we have nothing to hide, we have nothing to fear. It is not uncommon for slaves to embrace the loss of privacy in the name of safety, even if that feeling of safety is an illusion, but, in the end, whether we have something to hide is none of the government’s concern. In a true Republic, innocent until proven guilty is a paramount ideal, and this ideal cannot exist in a country where everyone is treated as a suspect at every moment of every day. No politician, no corporate body, no president, no alphabet agency in existence is exalted enough to play the all seeing all judging eye of god. This kind of power in the hands of an organization whose sole purpose is self preservation and expansion at any cost? Absolutely unacceptable!

If you want to permanently fix America’s economy, there really is no other choice. Even before Ron Paul’s rallying cry of “End The Fed” shook America during the peak of the Tea Party movement, I was a huge advocate of shutting down the Federal Reserve. Because no matter how hard we try to patch it up otherwise, the truth is that our debt-based financial system has been fundamentally flawed from the very beginning, and the Federal Reserve is the very heart of that system. The following is a free preview of an upcoming book that I am working on about how to turn this country is a more positive direction…
As the publisher of The Economic Collapse Blog, there have been times when I have been criticized for focusing too much on our economic problems and not enough on the solutions. But I believe that in order to be willing to accept the solutions that are necessary, people need to have a full understanding of the true severity of our problems. It isn’t by accident that we ended up 20 trillion dollars in debt. In 1913, a bill was rushed through Congress right before Christmas that was based on a plan that had been secretly developed by very powerful Wall Street bankers. G. Edward Griffin did an amazing job of documenting the development of this plan in his groundbreaking book “The Creature from Jekyll Island: A Second Look at the Federal Reserve”. At that time, most Americans had no idea what a central bank does or what one would mean for the U.S. economy. Sadly, even though more than a century has passed since that time, most Americans still do not understand the Federal Reserve.
The Federal Reserve was designed to create debt, and of course the Wall Street bankers were very excited about such a system because it would make them even wealthier. Since the Fed was created in 1913, the U.S. national debt has gotten more than 5000 times larger and the value of the U.S. dollar has declined by about 98 percent. So the Federal Reserve is doing what it was originally designed to do. In fact, it has probably worked better than the original designers ever dreamed possible.
There is often a lot of confusion about the Federal Reserve, because a lot of people think that it is simply an agency of the federal government. But of course that is not true at all. In fact, as Ron Paul likes to say, the Federal Reserve is about as “federal” as Federal Express is.
The Fed is an independent central bank that has even argued in court that it is not an agency of the federal government. Yes, the president appoints the leadership of the Fed, but the Fed and other central banks around the world have always fiercely guarded their “independence”. On the official Fed website, it is admitted that the 12 regional Federal Reserve banks are organized “much like private corporations”, and they very much operate like private entities. They even issue shares of stock to the private banks that own them.
In case you were wondering, the federal government has zero shares.
The American people are constantly being told that Fed decisions must be “above politics” because they are “too important” to be politicized. So even though everything else in our society is up for political debate, somehow we have become convinced that the Federal Reserve should be off limits.
Today, the Federal Reserve has more power over the performance of the U.S. economy than anyone else does, and that includes the president. The Fed has become known as “the fourth branch of government”, and a single statement from the chairman of the Fed can send global financial markets soaring or tumbling.
So even though presidents tend to get most of the credit or most of the blame for how the U.S. economy is doing, the truth is that the Fed is actually the one pulling most of the strings. In conjunction with Congress, presidents can monkey around with regulations and tax rates, but at the end of the day their influence over the economy pales in comparison to what the Fed is able to do.
For those that have never encountered this material before, this can be difficult to grasp at first, so let’s start with something very simple.
Go to your wallet or purse and pull out a dollar bill.
At the very top, you will notice that it says “Federal Reserve Note” in big, bold letters.
If you ask 99 percent of the people in the United States where money comes from, they will not be able to tell you. Our money is actually created and issued by the Federal Reserve, but that is not what our founders intended. According to Article I, Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution, Congress was expressly given the authority to “coin Money, regulate the Value thereof, and of foreign Coin, and fix the Standard of Weights and Measures”.
So why is the Federal Reserve doing it?
Many Americans are still operating under the assumption that the federal government has a “printing press” and that if we ever get into too much debt trouble the government could simply create and spend lots more money into circulation.
But that is not the way that our system currently operates.
Instead, it is the Federal Reserve that creates all new money. Once that new money is created, the federal government then borrows it and spends it into circulation.
Previously, I have written about how this works…
When the U.S. government decides that it wants to spend another billion dollars that it does not have, it does not print up a billion dollars.
Rather, the U.S. government creates a bunch of U.S. Treasury bonds (debt) and takes them over to the Federal Reserve.
The Federal Reserve creates a billion dollars out of thin air and exchanges them for the U.S. Treasury bonds.
This doesn’t seem to make any sense at all.
Why does the U.S. government have to borrow money that the Federal Reserve creates? Why can’t they just create the money themselves?
This is the big secret that nobody is supposed to know about.
Theoretically, the federal government doesn’t have to borrow a penny. Instead of borrowing money the Federal Reserve creates, it could just create money directly and spend it into circulation.
But then we wouldn’t be 20 trillion dollars in debt.
Once the Federal Reserve has received U.S. Treasury bonds in exchange for the “Federal Reserve Notes” that the federal government has requested, the Fed auctions off those bonds to the highest bidder. But as I have noted so many times before, this process always creates more debt than it does money…
The U.S. Treasury bonds that the Federal Reserve receives in exchange for the money it has created out of nothing are auctioned off through the Federal Reserve system.
There is a problem.
Because the U.S. government must pay interest on the Treasury bonds, the amount of debt that has been created by this transaction is greater than the amount of money that has been created.
So where will the U.S. government get the money to pay that debt?
Well, the theory is that we can get money to circulate through the economy really, really fast and tax it at a high enough rate that the government will be able to collect enough taxes to pay the debt.
But that never actually happens, does it?
And the creators of the Federal Reserve understood this as well. They understood that the U.S. government would not have enough money to both run the government and service the national debt. They knew that the U.S. government would have to keep borrowing even more money in an attempt to keep up with the game.
Beginning in 1913, this process has created an endless debt spiral that has resulted in the U.S. being 20 trillion dollars in debt. It is the biggest mountain of debt in the history of the world, and it didn’t have to happen.
In fact, if we had been using debt-free money all this time we could theoretically be completely out of debt.
A lot of conservatives out there are still under the illusion that if we could just grow the economy fast enough that we could possibly pay back all of this debt someday, but as I have demonstrated in a previous article, this is mathematically impossible. (http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/archives/it-is-mathematically-impossible-to-pay-off-all-of-our-debt)
All of this debt threatens to destroy the bright future that our children and our grandchildren were supposed to have. It is absolutely immoral to pass such a large debt on to future generations, but we are doing it anyway.
Of course the United States is far from alone in this regard. Today, more than 99.9% of the population of the world lives in a country that has a central bank.
There is literally nothing else that the entire planet agrees upon almost unanimously, and yet somehow virtually the whole globe has chosen to adopt debt-based central banking.
Do you think that this is just a coincidence?
A handful of extremely small nations such as the Federated States of Micronesia still do not have a central bank, but the only large country not to have one is North Korea.
I don’t understand why more people are not talking about this. If we really want to reform how things are done economically, it should start with central banking.
The truth is that we do not need a central bank.
Let me say that again.
We do not need a central bank.
The greatest period of economic growth in all of U.S. history was when there was no income tax and no central bank. (http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/archives/during-the-best-period-of-economic-growth-in-u-s-history-there-was-no-income-tax-and-no-federal-reserve)
Such a system would be unimaginable to many people today, but it is entirely possible.
Instead of a central bank creating debt-based currency for us, the federal government could create debt-free money directly.
And instead of socialist central planners setting our interest rates for us, we could allow the free market to set our interest rates.
We are supposed to be a free market nation with a free market economy, and so we don’t need Fed bureaucrats to run it for us.
The free market will always do a better job in the long run then bureaucrats will. As I noted earlier, the greatest period of economic growth in U.S. history was right before the Federal Reserve was created in 1913, but since that time there have been 18 distinct recessions or depressions: 1918, 1920, 1923, 1926, 1929, 1937, 1945, 1949, 1953, 1958, 1960, 1969, 1973, 1980, 1981, 1990, 2001, 2008.
Now we stand poised on the brink of another major downturn, and people still aren’t getting it.
As long as the Federal Reserve exists, there will be “booms” and “busts” like this.
It is time for a change.
During the good times, criticism of the Fed tends to subside. And without a doubt, the bubble following the end of the last recession lasted much longer than a lot of people initially would have thought, but all Fed-created bubbles eventually end.
We desperately need to get free from this system, and a huge step in that direction would be a rejection of debt-based currency.
If you don’t think that this can happen, you should consider what happened in 1963. President John F. Kennedy signed Executive Order 11110 which authorized the U.S. Treasury to issue debt-free “United States Notes” which were directly created by the federal government.
Unfortunately, he was assassinated shortly after that executive order was signed.
You can still find debt-free “United States Notes” in circulation today, and they are often for sale on auction sites such as eBay because people like to collect them.
At any time, the White House could do something similar today.
All it takes is the willingness to do so.
The borrower is the servant of the lender, and the debt-based Federal Reserve system has turned all of us into debt slaves.
If we do not want future generations of Americans to be enslaved to debt, we need to shut down the Federal Reserve and start using debt-free currency. Any essential functions that the Fed is currently performing can ultimately be taken over by the U.S. Treasury, and of course we can make the transition gradual so that we don’t completely panic global financial markets.
The global elite are using central banking and debt-based currencies to dominate the planet. Today, the total amount of debt in the world has shot past 150 trillion dollars, and it will only continue to grow until humanity wakes up and realizes the insanity of using a debt-based financial system.
Here in the United States, we need people in government that understand these things and that are willing to do something about it.
The Federal Reserve must go, and I will never make any apologies for saying that.
