Prayers for Patriots - Almighty God's Protection

Lesson from the Book of Wisdom  Ecclus, 51. 1-12

I will give glory to Thee, O Lord my king, and I will praise Thee, O God my Saviour.

I will give glory to Thy name: for Thou hast been a helper and protector to me, and hast preserved my body from destruction, from the snare of an unjust tongue, and from the lips of them that forge lies; and in the sight of them that stood by, Thou hast been my helper; and Thou hast delivered me, according to the multitude of the mercy of Thy name, from them that did roar, prepared to devour.

Out of the hands of them that sought my life, and from the gates of afflictions which compassed me about from the oppression of the flame which surrounded me, and in the midst of the fire I was not burnt; from the depth of the belly of hell, and from an unclean tongue, and from lying words, from an unjust king, and from a slanderous tongue; My soul shall praise the Lord even to death: because Thou O Lord, our God, deliverest them that wait for Thee, and savest them out of the hands of the nations.

10 Meter ham radio regulations update and evidence

As promised we have been digging into the situation on the importing, sales, and use of the 10 meter, or 10 and 12 meter only, so called "export" radios coming into this country by the thousands.


On the one hand there are hundreds of legitimate radio wholesalers buying these radios from importers and manufacturing companies, and reselling them to dealers across the country who sell them to anybody that has the money.

On the other hand there are ham radio companies that won't touch them with a 10 foot pole with a red hot poker on the end.  Some claim is made by some hams that they are ALL illegal CBs and that anyone that buys one has "rocks in his head". I actually heard that from one extra class ham recently.

Let's try to sort this out. The first piece of "evidence" we present is a document furnished to me, to back up the claim that all these 10 meter only "export" radios are totally illegal to import, sell, and use in the USA by anyone, even a licensed amateur radio licensee.

Now remember while you are reading the link below, that there are literally thousands of this type of radio coming into the country through US Customs as we speak, and they are being sold to absolutely anyone that cares to buy one, including dealers and end users nation wide. Also remember that each and every one of them WILL NOT TRANSMIT on the CB band (40 channels) in the configuration they are in when they came into the country. In that configuration, transmit on CB channels is blocked by some internal circuitry which has to be defeated before they will transmit on CB frequencies (11 meters).

http://www.fm2way.com/illegalcblist.htm

The question we are asking and have been researching is this:
If these radios are used in the configuration they are in when they are imported (CB transmit blocked) by a ham radio operator with a valid Technician class or above license, and if they are used only on ham frequencies in the 10 or 12 meter band as the case may be, and NOT used to transmit on the CB frequencies (40 channels class D CB) and remain unmodified to transmit on CB, is it illegal for that licensed ham operator to buy, own, and or use that radio on the ham band segments of the spectrum their class of license is authorized for?

There is a certain amount of evidence to wade through to get at the answer, and the next piece to the puzzle might be the following case from an FCC citation in 2005, where a radio dealer was advertising these radios as both ham and CB radios, and was modifying the radio to work on CB frequencies. Bear in mind that the FCC usually issues warning letters at least once and probably several times before they issue a citation, so this dealer probably ignored the warnings and was cited. I don't know the eventual outcome but will comment on the citation itself after you read it.
Here is the link to the citation:
http://www.fm2way.com/citationdezanett.pdf

Notice that in this citation many of the same models of radios are on the list as in the first letter, and also I would like to point out that several certified CB radios, that ONLY transmit on CB frequencies, are on the first list, but not this last one.  Those are Galaxy models DX919, DX929, DX959, DX979, DX2547. These Galaxy models have always been certified CB radios running legal power levels of 4 watts AM and 12 watts SSB max. The interesting thing is that they don't appear on the official FCC citation which is a legal document, while they do appear on the first document, which leads one to believe that the first document is not an official FCC document at all, but someone else trying to steer the market in their own direction. In fact one of the wholesalers that I have bought many thousands of dollars worth of merchandise from for 2 decades who also handles the 10 meter "export" radios as well as many models of certified CBs, was very convinced the first article is entirely bogus. Here is his comment:
"This list is not from the FCC. Some Amateur radio organization made it. Take a look. Five of the models listed under Galaxy are FCC Type Certified CB models."

The real telling part of this citation is in section 3. Here is the pertinent part:
"Section 2.803(a)(1) of the Rules provides that “… no person shall sell or lease, or offer for sale or lease (including advertising for sale or lease), or import, ship or distribute for the purpose of selling or leasing or offering for sale or lease, any radio frequency device unless: (1) In the case of a device subject to certification, such device has been authorized........."

None of these radios are certified because they qualify as Ham equipment and ham equipment is not subject to certification except Amplifiers! They go on to explain in part 5 why this type of dual use ham equipment is NOT certified.
From the citation:
"Additionally, dual use CB and amateur radios of the kind at issue here may not be certificated under the Commission’s rules. Section 95.655(a) of the Rules6 states “….([CB] Transmitters with frequency capability for the Amateur Radio Services….will not be certificated).” See also FCC 88-256, 1988 WL488084 (August 17, 1988). This clarification was added to explicitly foreclose the possibility of certification of dual use CB and amateur radios, see id., and thereby deter use by CB operators of frequencies allocated for amateur radio use."
They are clearly trying to protect the amateur radio operators from getting illegal traffic on the 10 and 12 meter bands, and having the same situation on those bands as the current mess on CB frequencies. The whole truth that they don't say here is the absolute undeniable fact that NO ham equipment is required to be certified with the exception of external RF amplifiers. NO equipment including the radios that many hams build FROM SCRATCH, and put right on the air, need any certification whatsoever by the FCC, period.  Ham radio has always been about research and development, and if we had to go beg some government agency every time we had a good idea for a radio device most of the great inventions in radio just simply would not exist today. 

CB radios ARE subject to certification, but these "export" radios are not being imported as CB radios, and are not sold as such unless the dealer is modifying, or offering to modify them to do the CB band. And that, my friends, is when the FCC gets excited and starts sending out warning letters.

Everyone seems to have a different opinion. Here is one quote from one of the ham forums when they were talking about "dual use" radios.
"What modern transceiver from ICOM, KENWOOD, ALINCO, or YAESU is NOT "easily converted to coverage outside 10m as are other radios of this type"?  To get general coverage transmit on these Ham radios requires no more effort than what is required to expand the coverage of these 10 meter radios.  I am not supporting illegal out of band operation, but lets be honest about this.  The problem does not only involve these 10 meter type radios."

So now back to my question.  What is the answer? Can licensed ham operators buy, and use one of these "export" radios if they stay in the ham bands, and operate within the guidelines for their class of license, and the guidelines for the ham band they are on, and never modify the radio to do the CB bands?

Remember, we are looking for something official, and definitive here. We are looking for something right out of the horse's mouth, so to speak.  While the following won't be the end of our research because we think the question in this communication from the FCC was not very well worded, this answer from the FCC is spurring us on to dig out some of the actual court cases and how they were resolved, so stay tuned, because it seems that in the following determination with the case ID number HD0000002214012 it says they CAN be used in the ham bands.  Is this actually true, or is it the FCC trying to set up another sting operation so they can cite, and fine more people?  You decide, but stay tuned. We are going to find the answer.

http://www.fm2way.com/FCC10meterauthorization.htm

If, in fact, these radios are illegal to import, and sell, and use, then it begs the question, Why does the FCC and the US Customs continue to allow them to be imported and sold? And when they do some kind of enforcement action, and pick just one person to persecute, isn't that selective prosecution? Why not shut the whole thing down? If you want more on 'selective prosecution' just do a search on the term. The internet is full of evidence from law libraries and cases showing selective prosecution is totally unlawful.
See you next time, and please comment below.

What you were never told about 9/11 IF you dare watch!

Published on Dec 26, 2012
THE GREAT CONSPIRACY: The 9/11 News Special You Never Saw is a 70-minute sequel to The Great Deception. That is a ground-breaking 44-minute video also by Barrie Zwicker. He was the first mainstream journalist in the world to go on air (in January 2002) and ask hard questions about the official story of 9/11. The Great Deception is a compilation of his series of seven commentaries on 9/11. In The Great Conspiracy, Zwicker updates and expands his critique. He analyses the use of fear to befuddle the public. He deconstructs the so-called "war on terrorism." He examines in depth the failure of the military on 9/11 and George Bush's highly inappropriate behaviour that day. He finds the 9/11 Commission to be a total coverup operation. Throughout, he analyses the role of the mainstream media as complicit in keeping the public massively misinformed and befuddled. And he suggests what we can do.

The FCC 10 Meter Export Radio Trap to Fleece the Public.

As a licensed Amateur Radio operator since about 1995 (now general class, KC7MEZ), and a volunteer examiner #1524 class G, I am constantly trying to increase the participation of the public in ham radio for safety and emergency communications for what we believe will be some really tough times in America in the very near future.



In the last few days I have run into something that really gets me fired up, and as usual it involves one of those alphabet soup federal agencies, the FCC.  First I will tell you the story of how the FCC ruined the amateur 11 meter band, which is now known as the CB band.

The Amateur 11 meter band was one of our best long distance daytime ham bands, because during the daytime the sun drives the ionosphere close to the earth, and signals with a wavelength longer than about 10 meters in length will bounce back to earth. This is called propagation, and made it possible to talk around the world on 11 meters when the band was good.  Then on September 11th 1958 the FCC took the 11 meter band away from ham radio and created the class D citizens band as a licensed 23 channel band in the 27 MHz frequency range, with the first 22 channels taken from the ham 11 meter band.  The hams were vehemently opposed to this move. The amateur community told the FCC that those frequencies would never work for a licensed band for many reasons. The first reason is the propagation, which is the very thing that made 11 meters so valuable to hams. They reasoned that since CBers wanted to have dependable local communications for many personal reasons as well as for business, safety etc. there would be a problem with interference from people out of the local area that would stop local communications altogether, or make it very difficult to have a readable local conversation, or at the very least would cut down the range of those local communications to the point that the band would become unusable for any dependable local communications.

It didn't take long for exactly that to happen. I remember my own first involvement. My CB call sign was KPF4162, and my first radio was a Johnson Messenger III mobile. I had it mounted in my car, and in the early and middle 60s there were not many people to talk to, but by 1977 there were so many people using CB that the FCC expanded the band to 40 channels, and then later in the early 80s the FCC abandoned their license requirement entirely and threw the band open to license free operation. The main reason for this admission of failure is that with the propagation and large participation of people, many using large illegal power amplifiers, the band became mostly unusable for local business or safety communications because of interference from out of the local area. In short the FCC picked exactly the wrong frequencies to use for a local business and personal radio service.  That is exactly what the hams told them would happen, but the FCC 'in their infinite wisdom' wouldn't listen as usual.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Citizens%27_band_radio

Today you might be talking to somebody a few blocks away and somebody in another state running hundreds of watts might key down and blow you right off the air. According to a Wikipedia article on this the FCC originally intended that this new CB band be a poor man's business-band radio service. Well, so much for business use on CB!  So now we have a mess.

Here is the rub. 
The FCC still wants us to follow all their other rules about CB including power maximums, but they have completely LOST CONTROL of the entire band. They now selectively prosecute a few grievous offenders that run lots of power and maliciously interfere with local television or other CBers or once in a while when they think they can levy a big fine, they cite someone for selling what they consider to be illegal CB equipment. In effect the FCC has created a whole bootleg black market for illegal power in the form of RF amplifiers that can legitimately do some of the ham bands, but also will amplify 11 meter signals far beyond the 4 watt AM or 12 SSB legal power levels.  The same has happened with a whole class of radios that have come to be known as 10 meter "export" radios.  These radios can all do legitimate ham frequencies including 10 meters, and some do 12 meters, but they all are easily modified to also go on the CB 11 meter band with very simple modifications like plugging in a jumper, or removing some diodes.

Now get this.
THESE RADIOS ARE STILL BEING LET INTO THE COUNTRY THROUGH CUSTOMS.

You would think US customs would follow what the FCC is telling them to let in, and what to block. There are literally hundreds of thousands of these 10 meter "export" radios being allowed into the country.
The FCC just looks the other way and shrugs. They put out guidelines and lists of "illegal radios" but then they never stop them from coming, and from being sold all around the country. They just refuse to enforce their own guidelines which creates the black market.
There are conflicting reports as to the legality of the importing of these radios, and we are currently involved in trying to get the cases sorted out, but it's a big blur as to what the FCC really has given, as to any kind of enforceable policy. It seems they want the blur and confusion. They want the gray area so they have some easy way to hang people they consider targets, or maybe where they think they can levy big fines.

Once again, a government agency has made a whole class of regulations that allows them to ignore enforcement unless they want to enforce it. They, in effect, have baited a trap, and are waiting for their prey.  This creates problems for people who want to do things according to FCC regulations and who are licensed hams, or are ham radio dealers who want to play by the rules..

Hams, for example, can run legally on 10 meters, and 12 meters, and in the case of a tech class ham, which is the lowest license class in ham radio, they can legally run up to 200 watts of power on 10 meters between 28.3 and 28.5 Mhz. But in order to do that legally, according to the FCC, they have to buy an all band HF ham rig that would probably cost upwards of  $700 to $1000 at a minimum, instead of a 10 meter only radio that may cost only$300 to $400, and that would operate perfectly WITHIN all of the ham radio guidelines and all the operating parameters of the FCC for ham radio.
According to the FCC, there are no such radios in America that are 'legal' or approved by the FCC. They have this big long list of 10 meter export radios that are all "banned" for import and sale, but then they look the other way and let every company that wants to build one import them or sell them throughout the country, thereby setting up millions of people for big fines and confiscation of not only their radios, but their entire businesses and in the case of one man that I know of that is now deceased they even took $16K out of the proceeds from the sale of his house.

Not only that, but if the rules were clear about who could run what type of radio, it might make it possible for the manufacturers to make a radio the would be an entry level 10 meter all mode transceiver that did everything on 10 meters, and get the cost down much further yet, perhaps even under $200 per radio depending on power capabilities. This would increase the availability of much more powerful and longer range communications to former CBers who might want to get their technician license, who are now bootlegging illegal power on the CB band, and would help to clean up the CB band, and decrease the temptation for CBers who are not licensed to come up on the 10 meter ham band and operate without a proper ham callsign. We hams are very good at policing our own frequencies, and if someone shows up without the proper call sign, nobody would talk to them, since they are not in the call sign directory at www.qrz.com.

Here is the real issue. We have a government agency that is guilty of entrapment and selective prosecution by administrative edict, and extrajudicially stealing from people without due process, just like almost every other government agency is doing at this time.  FCC regulations are NOT laws. They are regulations. And the big one is that the FCC doesn't even follow their own regs. They LOOK THE OTHER WAY after creating their big long list of so called "illegal" radios, and continue to let the manufacturers of those radios import and sell them by the hundreds of thousands right here in America. It's like trolling for fish. They get some unsuspecting radio dealer to bite, and make a small infraction, and then they pounce on them and take all their stuff, and fine them big money, for what? They have lost control of the entire band anyway, so that makes their actions nothing but persecution.

And what about the radio dealers that play by the rules, and refuse to sell any of these "export" radios?
How much money are we losing to this black market?.  As a radio dealer for the last 22 years both in retail and internet sales how much money have I lost since being forced by the gray legal area to abstain from this market?  How much have the properly licensed ham operators paid over the years for these bad decisions from the FCC?

What are the solutions?

First, the FCC could put out some really clear guidelines and then enforce them across the board for everybody. And if their regulations are not enforceable, then take them off the books, and stop selective enforcement and selective prosecution which are both unlawful!

Second, and better, the FCC could just get the heck out of the way, and remove those regs, and open up the market. The CB band is lost anyway. WHY NOT GIVE IT BACK TO THE HAMS?

Legalize all the 10 meter export radios, and then require anybody that uses one to have a proper ham callsign. That is not as difficult as you might think it is. None of the ham license classes require learning the morse code at all any more.  The license is free. It comes with some really good training and a test.
The test is simple. 35 questions, which are all multiple choice. You can get 9 questions wrong and still pass the test and get your license. The license is FREE for 10 years, and then you can renew on line for another 10 years without any cost. The only time you would start over is if you want a different call sign, or if you want to upgrade to general or extra class.

Then give the 11 meter band including all the new frequencies in the upper channels to the Ham community where it belongs. But with one new twist.  On this band, and only this 11 meter band, let the hams and everybody else use it for business communications. Yes, LET EVERYBODY use the old CB 40 frequencies for business use, but as a licensed amateur radio operator who KNOWS WHAT THEY ARE DOING. The only difference from now is that they will need a call sign as at least a tech class ham.
They can keep on running their same CB radios on those frequencies, and any of the new 10 meter export radios opened up for 11 meters, but they will have to do so, with proper training, and authorization, and policed by the ham community, NOT THE FCC.
We are much better at keeping a band clean and useable than the FCC ever was. The CBers could get the tech class license without much trouble, and then they would know how to get the most out of their radio communications. With a callsign requirement they would be required to operate according to proper protocol as we do on all the other ham bands. They would get the extra benefit of a legal 200 watts of power, and especially on SSB, but just on those frequencies which were formerly CB channels, AND they could use those same radios for business use. They could call somebody and order parts for their logging machine or whatever. This is what the FCC originally intended. That the CB band would be a poor man's business band radio service.

The manufacturers would not have to change a thing, except abide by the FCC rules for cross frequency interference, and intermod, like any transmitter is required to do now.

As always the solution to our problems in this country involve having LESS GOVERNMENT not more.
Let's get rid of the agencies that are interfering with our prosperity and freedom, and stop the legalized plunder of the public with administration persecution for every little infraction, and let real practical people help their neighbors to become better educated about this technology so they can accomplish what their personal communications needs demand.

How about it FCC?  How about it Hams?  Are you willing to solve this problem. Are you willing to take this bull by the horns and wrestle him to the ground, and reign in the problems of bureaucratic over reach?

Are you ready to make this whole black market disappear in a heartbeat, with no real added expense by a simple ruling from a government agency that for once would actually solve a problem and make people MORE FREE and better equipped for emergency, safety, and business communications?

I will be writing much more about this subject, and I invite you to use the comment section below. Just click on the word comments and add your ideas. As we are able to get the actual paperwork on some of these cases of persecution we will be publishing everything on both sides of this discussion.

Another issue that just flat won't go away - The Common Law Grand Jury

Much to the chagrin of many in the corrupt judicial system of today, and the corporate government structure the idea
of a standing common law Grand Jury just keeps coming back to haunt them.
Government can only push people so far, and then they start to push back HARD!
That seems to be the case in Gallatin and Park counties.
Read this article, and then pay special attention to the comments below the article, and also to the website link in my comment.
Paul Stramer
Here is the article:
Here is my comment:

I concur completely with Elias Alias below, as what he said clearly outlines the basis for the Grand Jury, and Mr. Becker should take him seriously and he should continue his studies of this issue, only leave aside the apparent bias he has for the status quo position, and try to arrive at the whole truth.
To that end I would like to offer some research I have accumulated that might help inform.
Here it is, and please follow all the links or you won't 'get it' as they say.
And here is the comment from Elias Alias of Oathkeepers if you couldn't find it in the comments section.
Elias Alias
to
Michael Becker,
I applaud your notion to look more deeply into background on stories you may cover for your job as a reporter. I would also like to suggest to you that attacking the character of a person in focus in a story must be carefully done. The topic here was the "common law grand jury". Looking hard to see what side of the political aisle the advocates for common law grand juries chance to be on is risky journalism, imo.
You have quoted a bit of Scalia, which is good. But I would encourage you to dig deeper and look for other Supreme Court pronouncements regarding the common law grand jury. There are actually a number of such cases, cases in which the Supreme Court recognizes what Scalia reiterated - that the Grand Jury belongs to the People and is not subject to the three Federal branches of government. In your conclusion above, you note that the common law grand jury is "illegal". That may prove to be a precocious pronouncement, Amigo. If you continue to dig deeper, you'll come to see this for yourself.
Please allow me to inject a meme into your mindset which could possibly help you in your search for the greater truth on this topic. We look often at the Tenth Amendment. The Tenth Amendment states that any powers not delegated by the States to the General (Federal) government are reserved to the States OR to the People. It does not say "AND to the people." It says "OR" to the People. Why would our Founders use the word "or" instead of "and"? Students of the Constitution come to understand that "We The People" are the ultimate source for authority and legitimacy in all government. The People, acting in concert, rebelled against the British government while yet Colonists of Great Britain. They then constituted themselves into States, with sovereignty and international standing, with their respective laws and other infrastructural components common to any nation-state. As independent States, they convened to create a compact called the Articles of Confederation, which elected U.S. Presidents during the period before our Constitution was created and ratified. During that time each State was a republic, was autonomous, and retained autonomous sovereignty as a nation. When they convened again to improve upon the Articles of Confederation, their convention turned into a Constitutional convention, owing to the labors of James Madison, who is generally known as the "Father of the Constitution". One of our fine rivers here is named after him, yes? While just how it happened is a never-ending debate, the convention to modify and alter or improve the Articles of Confederation morphed into a convention which produced our present-day Constitution. Before the States would ratify it, they demanded that the Bill of Rights be in place as the first Ten Amendments, which we yet today refer to as the Bill of Rights. Of course you know all that already. But I'm reminding your readers of that, here, to set the stage for introducing a grand thought which is relative to your concern about common law grand juries. One final hint:
In his Ft. Hill Address of the 1830s, John C. Calhoun gave us one sentence which cuts to the chase in many arguments since he uttered this:
"The error is in the assumption that the General government was party to the compact."
You see, Michael, the States, each of them being at that time an independent, sovereign nation-state republic, signed the compact which created the General (Federal) government. If you look below the Constitution you will find their signatories - but - you will find no signature on behalf of the Federal government on that document.
That is because the General (Federal) government did not exist until the States signed that compact among themselves, with each party-State owning a co-equal status in that compact with every other State in compact. The States created the General (Federal) government.
And the States themselves derived their authority and autonomy and sovereignty from.....whom? From We The People, which is why those three words are the first three words in the document. We _ The _ People. That is why the Tenth Amendment uses the word "OR" instead of the word "AND" in its qualifier phrase, "...to the States or to the People".
One can begin to realize the genius in that perspective when one recalls that our Founders specified a higher authority than the government they created. They did that with the term "unalienable rights", which they said derive from Nature or Nature's God. (Natural rights, which is the basis of "Common Law", which is a totally different form of law from "statutory law". This nation's founders wrote the Constitution to preserve our unalienable rights under Natural (Common) Law. If you look at the Constitution, you'll notice that it is a document limiting the authorities and powers of the General (Federal) government. Article 1, Section 8, tells the government what it should do. The Bill of Rights tells the General government what it cannot infringe upon - which is our unalienable rights. And the Tenth Amendment tells the General government that if it is not listed in Article 1, Section 8, it is reserved to the States or to the People.
Our Constitution is neither "left" nor "right". It is *above* the political fray of factions or "political partiers", which our Founders, especially George Washington, abhorred. (George Washington did not want to see political parties in this country.) For your investigation to focus on political philosophies of involved and named characters in your story in the Chronicle is a bit of a short-coming on your part, but one which is easily understandable to me.
To bring up John Darash's membership in Oath Keepers serves what purpose, if not to fragment the overall presentation of otherwise-facts, by defining his philosophy as a Constitutionalist? That is what Oath Keepers is - an educational group with outreach to police and military and firefighters and Veterans, whom we approach with materials showing the history of the Constitution which they are required to swear or affirm an Oath to before assuming their duties in service to America or the State or the County or the Township. Our membership consists of all walks of American life, both left and right, both centrist and non-opinionated. Like the Constitution itself, Oath Keepers embraces all Americans as co-equal in rights and the protections of the state (government). Contrary to what the SPLC will tell people, Oath Keepers is not a "far-right" organization. Additionally, Oath Keepers has not made any formal policy statement regarding the Grand Jury phenomenon, not at this time, but our Board of Directors, of which I am a member, is now beginning to look into the matter. We are interested in Constitutional questions about this, and we are open-minded about it. If you chance to want to share your own research with me, please use this method to contact me.

Lawmakers plot new strategy for defying gun law

More states are joining the effort to stop abuse of power by the Feds.
Nullification is the issue, and so is the commerce clause abuse of the last few decades, which the Montana Firearms Freedom Act seeks to end.  In the mean time other states are getting on the bandwagon, and the numbers are growing.

Why Has only 1% of Snowden's documents been released.



Following the money being generated by these so called journalists who are holding on to the information so they can get rich on the process of releasing them, is very interesting.  Are they playing this game for greed?
Are they willing to gamble the future of this country for their own wealth?

The big question is this.  Will all those documents, including the ones that could generate indictments of government agents and employees, EVER see the light of day, and who will get rich in the process of hiding these documents from the public?

MY BIG QUESTION IS THIS:   Why didn't Snowden just UPLOAD the whole darn load of documents to the internet on a bunch of different websites on foreign servers where the US government can't get at them.

It seems to me this whole thing might be some kind of setup, or diversionary tactic to keep people distracted from efforts that might really reign in the out of control criminal elements in our government. Is that true?
I don't know, but we will be watching these sources closely.

At this point only a few hundred of the 50 some thousand documents have been released.

Great News!

The moment has arrived, that every American - and indeed, every person with half a brain cell has been waiting for, over these past 12 years!

The only way for America to be what it was intended to be and for us to return ourselves is for the truth to be known. This will do the rest of the world a load of good, as well.

Recent revelations published on the Press TV website, the New York Post and Veterans Today have changed history.

The story was simple, two American Congressional Representatives were allowed to read the Congressional 9/11 Investigation Report, this time including the areas President Bush had ordered removed. 

Both Congressmen clearly state that the redacted pages of the report place full responsibility for the planning and execution of 9/11 on one or more foreign intelligence agencies, not "terrorists."

What is also clear is that President Bush's personal role in covering this up protected the real perpetrators of 9/11 and pushed the US into - not just two insane wars - but draconian moves against America's government.

The NSA and the Bush 9/11 Coup

Nine eleven was a coup against the Constitution. Additional reports released this week make clear some of the reasons Bush lied to the American people, to Congress, our military and our allies: -

General Cements Plan to End Obama's Reign, but will it do anything at all?

Today WND released an article outlining Ret. Maj. Gen . Paul E. Vallely's plan to muster a vote of "no confidence" against Obama and his minions nation wide but starting in the US House.

You can read that article here:  http://www.wnd.com/2014/01/general-cements-plan-to-end-obamas-reign/

Here are my comments.

First of all, we have been cornered before by other so called conservative leaders over the last 60 years or so, starting with the John Birch Society.  These leaders and their organizations have made a place for those who believe in the US Constitution, and conservatives in general to run to, where they can be contained and controlled. Where they can be made to spend their money, and spin their wheels, and get nothing done.
Where they can be drained of their energy, and where no power returns into the hands of the people who would really do something to reverse the diabolic trend to totalitarianism that has this country in a death grip.

I will give you an example.   In 1967 and 1968 my uncle, Leo B. Landsberger, was the paid state coordinator for the John Birch Society in the State of North Dakota, where I grew up. He had sold his farm and was very concerned about the state of the nation even then, and was determined to do something about it. He chose to use his considerable talents and his money from the farm to do exactly that.

He was a brilliant organizer, and one of those rare people who could be very persuasive and could speak to a live audience for a couple of hours off the top of his head with no notes, and never say the same thing twice. His sister Rosemary was of like mind and talent, and between the two of them and several key people including some of their brothers and myself and some of our family, were instrumental in organizing over 20 new chapters of the John Birch Society in North Dakota over a 3 year period, and along with that we urged many members of that Society to run for public office in the 1968 campaign, the same year that George Wallace ran for president. To that end, we set up 8 offices across North Dakota, 4 on the highline Highway 2, in Williston, Minot, Devils Lake, and Grand Forks, and 4 along the Interstate in Dickinson, Bismarck, Jamestown, and Fargo.  Each and every one of these offices had a national full time WATS line, or Wide Area Telephone System, which in those days was very expensive, at around $2500 per month.

Leo and the crew used those WATS lines to organize political activity for freedom like had never been done anywhere or anytime in US history up to that time, including the pamphleteering of absolutely every town and city in the whole state of North Dakota with a packet of campaign information at every doorstep of every house in those towns.

To make a long story very short, we called that effort the Taxpayers republican Ticket, and ran in the primary election (North Dakota has an open primary).  We had over 100 candidates that covered all the state and national offices of North Dakota, and many of the legislative seats, and all the candidates were members of the Birch Society.

Then in 1968 we organized a caravan to the New England Rally for God, Family, and Country, in Boston MA, at the Marriott Hotel in downtown Boston.  The founder of the John Birch Society, Robert Welch, was at the conference. My aunt Rosemary was a professional artist who was very well known in North Dakota among the art community, and gave art lessons all around the state. Her favorite tools were a photocopier, and a calligraphy pen, and a legal size sheet of colored paper,  and if she had them she was very dangerous to the subversive elements in our country at the time.  We built some flyers at the Hotel in Boston, and started to pamphleteer that convention, and Robert Welch found one, and realized that members of his Society were running for office in North Dakota, with a big effort to get some real power back into the hands of "We The People".  He came completely unglued. He confronted my uncle's wife on the mezzanine of the hotel and made a big public scene, jumping up and down off the floor and screaming at her that we were ruining everything the Birch Society was trying to accomplish by running for office.

After the convention, while we were on the 4 day drive to get home, we found out that Robert Welch had terminated the membership of 6 people from the Society, but this time it was a public announcement, and to my knowledge these are the only 6 people who have ever been kicked out of that Society publicly.
They were Leo Landsberger, his own paid coordinator, Rosemary Landsberger, Joe Shea, Bill Baker,Jeri Baker and myself.  This effectively ended that chance of electing many of the TRT people to office.

There is one thing that this campaign did accomplish however.  When it was time for the people of ND to vote on a new state constitution, in 1972, the same year Montana and a bunch of other states changed theirs for the worst, the people of North Dakota were smart enough to turn theirs down by a vote of 3 to 1, and today they are the single most prosperous state in this nation, retaining many rights that other states gave away, such as the right of the people to call a Grand Jury by petition.

I tell you this story only to outline what could be happening again. If anybody would know how to set up a controlled opposition it would be a military trained crew.

I have some challenges for you Maj. Gen. Paul E Vallely.  General, if your really want to stop Obama, while restoring the US Constitution, you should be using the tools that are already built into our system.
We have 4 votes in our system of government.
1. The Ballot Box
2. The Grand Jury Box
3. The Trial Jury Box
4. The Cartridge Box

You should be urging the people under your influence to talk about setting up grand juries across the country to indict these leftist communist traitors for their crimes, and that includes educating veterans, and active duty military who have sworn the oath to do exactly that, to uphold, obey, and defend that system of law that was authored by "WE THE PEOPLE" for our government to follow, not the other way around.  I can give you some instruction on how to do this, but first here is a link so you can see what this is based upon. It's based on a fairly recent decision by the US Supreme Court in 1992.
http://www.paulstramer.net/2013/12/the-grand-jury-answer-for-corruption-in.html

As you can see, the Grand Jury, as decided by the US Supreme Court, is NOT part of the 3 branches of government. IT IS ENTIRELY OWNED BY THE PEOPLE.  It is designed to be a 4th check against corruption and unlawful power by elected officials who are abusing the power of their office and usurping power they don't have by law. The Grand Jury is the lawful and NON VIOLENT way the people have to hold their government servants in control and prosecute those who abuse their power.
Here is an example of how that is being done in the State of New York right now as we speak.

http://www.paulstramer.net/2014/01/its-time-to-take-power-away-from.html

To put it very bluntly, THIS METHOD HAS REAL TEETH, and it is very dangerous to totalitarian rule.
This method directly and immediately puts the power to correct these abuses BACK INTO THE HANDS OF THE PEOPLE.

Another thing you should be doing is to gather up every veteran and active duty service person you can influence and get them ready to be a voice for the efforts of a standing Grand Jury.
No laws have to be changed to make it "lawful" for the Grand Jury to operate. The US Supreme Court says so.Those states who have attempted to suppress the Grand Jury are doing so outside the Constitutionality of the law, and are acting unlawfully, which makes their so called law null and void.
If you don't think so read this.

http://www.paulstramer.net/2012/11/what-is-really-law-and-what-is-not-law.html

Even some of the state constitutions which have clauses that deny We The People access to a standing Grand Jury are outside the law and constitutionality of the US Constitution. Read that 1992 decision in the link above again, and see if you don't agree with me.

The Grand Jury has the power of subpoena, and investigation, and can exclude judges and prosecutors who think they can control the Grand Jury, from the room. They can make findings of fact, and they can issue true bills, or indictments.  They can also command public servants to obey the law under threat of indictment.
That command is called a Writ of Mandamus, which is what is happening in New York right now. Maybe you need to read those documents again:
http://www.paulstramer.net/2014/01/its-time-to-take-power-away-from.html

Another facet of this is the power of just one juror on a trial jury to nullify bad law and to judge the law as well as the facts in any case. For more information and a jury rights handbook go to this link.

http://juryrights.info/

My challenge is this. Are you going to rally everybody to do some useless exercise in political action that spends their money, wastes their time, and never gets any power back into the hands of good people, or are you going to use the tools the founders built into our system to get real power back into the hands of the persecuted good people of this country and put the real traitors in jail where they belong???

Paul Stramer  Eureka Montana  406 889 3183   pstramer@eurekadsl.net

P.S.   This article was emailed to the Maj. General Vallely directly. So far no answer. Perhaps if everybody reading this comments, and then forwards a link to General Vallely it will sink in that he should answer this.

Which do you prefer. A Civil War, or World War III ?

This article is so important that I have published the entire article, and will add my comments below the article.  Please go to the article and read the comments below the original article after you read my comments below on this page.


Would You Prefer a Civil War or World War Three?

Dave Hodges January 5, 2014 The Common Sense Show   America is on a collision course with a brutal civil war. We can argue if the coming civil war will be conventional or guerrilla. However, many of us feel that we have reached the point of no return and that civil strife is unavoidable. A political solution to our multiple issues would have been my preferred choice, but that ship sailed a long time ago. I know that the cognitive dissonance crowd will not believe this, however, nobody from that mindset can answer the most important question in the debate based upon the present circumstances:
If a civil war was not inevitable, then explain how the military and this administration are going to get past the fact that this “false flag” President has fired over 200+ military command officers?
And there is a second important question:
Why have 14 state governors restructured their respective state military organizations so that they are not under the control of Obama?

A Military Rebellion Is Unavoidable

Whenever 200+ leaders of any organization are fired in a short period of time, the person doing the firing has formed a group which opposes them. These military leaders had great influence and close ties over those that they have commanded. Obama just did not fire over 200+ military commanders, he alienated, tens if not hundreds of thousands of military personnel who based their professional loyalty to their military commanders and they will resist their foreign born Commander-In-Chief as a result of this betrayal of trust.
This is not a question of some of us in the media who desire for this happen. We have no say in the matter. And father time is defeating many of us, as several of us are too old to fight and too fat to run! It is not up to us as these conditions, which are ripe for a civil war, were forced upon our nation by Obama and his handlers.

Some Questions for the Fence-Sitting Sheep

Do you not think the executive officers under the command of the fired military leaders understood the issues behind the firing of their commanding officers? Was not the entire command structure in Afghanistan alienated from Obama when McChrystal was fired, largely over rules of engagement? Do you not think that all service personnel in Iraq and Afghanistan understand that this buffoon of a President increases their chances of not coming home alive, because of Obama’s treasonous rules of engagement which endangers American soldiers? Do you not think that if many of us in the alternative media can find evidence of a massive Russian troop buildup, including the presence of Russian heavy equipment on our soil, that the military is not already resentful of the fact that they have to wet nurse these future martial law enforcing troops and that they are from a nation that has repeatedly threatened to nuke America in the past 15 months? Do you think  our military commanders are looking forward to the participation of Chinese and Russian soldiers in the upcoming RIMPAC war games? Do you not think that the upper echelon of the military is not scared to death that in a time of civil unrest, or civil war, that we have 200,000 troops, stationed in foreign countries, who will not likely get home? Do you think the Generals in the Pentagon do not know the commanders in Afghanistan, or Iraq? Do you not think there are not close personal relationships in and among our military leaders stationed around the world and there is not an overall awareness in the military that the President is playing for the other side? Do you sheep really believe that the next time our noncommissioned officers send another young American home in a body bag because of the President’s rules of engagement, that the resentment towards this administration does not grow exponentially? Do you not think that present active duty personnel do not hear from their veteran friends who have come back home, that the Obama administration now refers to veterans, in DHS documents, as domestic terrorists and that Obama is going after their guns because he fears them? If we can find out about Obama’s fake birth certificate and his anti-American sentiment, do you not think that our troops have not learned these lessons a long time ago? Most American military commanders are loyal to each other and have been trained to risk their lives on behalf of their fellow soldiers. Why do you think that when someone from the executive branch flies into Afghanistan, that the troops must be disarmed because of previous shooting incidents? Does anyone really believe that our military enjoys sleeping with the enemy? And who do you think they blame? After considering all of these facts, do you sheep still believe that it will not take much provocation to get the troops to act against the modern day KGB in America (i.e. DHS)? Hell, even Ray Charles could see this is fertile breeding ground for a civil war! If this was Stalinist Russia, these military officers would have been shot in the back of the head. Fortunately for these 200+ deposed military commanders, our modern communications system would make it impossible for Obama to purge the military in the same manner as Stalin did without incurring the ire of an entire nation. However, the end result is the same. The military is being purged because it will not act against the American people and you can take that to the bank. The best we can hope for in the present set of circumstances, is a military coup and that, my friends, never ends well and I lose sleep over this possibility. If we do not change course, our greatest fears will be realized because the sides are already drawn and it will not be long until all hell breaks loose across our country.

An Epic Struggle Is Taking Shape

In one corner, we have the DHS led federal agencies accompanied by their muscle; the Chinese, the Russians and the Canadians. If this group prevails in the upcoming struggle, Mao will have to forfeit his title as the most murderous dictator in world history. There are members of the NWO who do not want two stones left together in this country. They want as many of us to die as possible (see the Georgia Guide Stones). They want to leave no trail of the traditional American notions of freedom and independence because these notions are a formidable roadblock to the lethal scientific dictatorship being installed on this planet. Americans are in the crosshairs of history. American Christians will soon become the most hunted game on the planet because we represent freedom, autonomy and obedience to God’s laws and not blind obedience to the dictates of genocidal leaders. In our corner, the other corner, we have a large segment of the American military and some of the American citizenry, largely veterans, who will oppose the attempts to finalize the tyranny being installed across the planet.  This is an all-stakes, winner-take-all battle. Soon, even the sheep are going to be forced to choose sides.

No Pleasant Alternatives

The coming conflict will not have a good outcome no matter who wins. If the military and the American citizens prevail, all we will likely accomplish is to replace one brutal dictatorship with another. If the other side wins, there is nowhere that will be safe. All of us will become, by definition, an endangered species.

Fourteen Governors Have Acquired Some Temporary Courage Against Tyranny

I have previously written that I have recently spoken with a high ranking military officer who was fired because he would not help DHS to completely control a fully integrated state-to-state national guard organization. He was unwilling to voluntarily hand the keys to the car to a communist such as Obama whom he perceived as someone who was dedicated to the destruction of this country. This officer’s resolve was shocking, but now I understand why. In retrospect, he was lucky that he was only fired. Why has DHS armed to the teeth? The answer is simple, Obama is facing opposition to not only his failed policies like Obamacare and he is facing the possibility of organized military resistance at the state level in several locations. There is presently an armed uprising directed at him by the select governors of 14 different states and that number is continuing to grow. To the previous point I raised as to why Obama is moving to nationalize the National Guard Forces, the answer is simple. Fourteen governors are militarily organizing against Obama. States such as Alabama, Georgia, Kansas, Minnesota, Tennessee, Virginia, Louisiana and South Carolina, are saying no to the increasing level of tyranny. These state military entities have been structured in such a way that they cannot become federalized. This is highly significant because the vast amount of federal/DHS resources used to federalize local police forces is now being undermined in these 14 states.

Obama Is Not Just Facing An Armed Rebellion From the Military

Fourteen state governors have reestablished State Defense Forces which includes any and all militias and the national guard. The authority over these troops does not rest with the President and he is furious. Obviously, these 14 governors are talking and planning amongst each other because their actions are so uniform and have happened in such a narrow time frame, that their actions are clearly an act of insubordination to Obama. In 14 states, the 10th Amendment still has life. These actions by the 14 governors are one short step away from armed rebellion. I am confident that any and all attempts on the part of the Hessian troops on American soil to move against dissident Americans and to enforce martial law will be militarily opposed in these 14 states. When will 14 governors militarily opposed to Obama become 30, become 40? I cannot overstate how significant this development is. We are “One shot heard around the world” from all hell breaking lose.

Conclusion

It is clear that the peoples’ closest elected representatives have had enough of this criminal organization as have our military. All citizens in the 36 states who are not militarily rising up against Obama, need to demand the same actions from their respective governors. Obama cannot act against a nation that is unified against him. However, this does mean that the bankers will push for WWIII to bring about their desired result if an internal takeover of America cannot be accomplished.
There is even a third wild card factor that has not been discussed anywhere in the media. Does anyone really think that the military industrial complex supports Obama’s desire to bring down the American military? Will the conquering hordes of Chinese and Russian troops allow these capitalist pigs to make as much as they are under the existing system?

MY Answer and comments to the question: 

I would very much prefer a less violent solution. I have always preferred political, social, and legal solutions to these problems. I am not trying to fool myself into thinking that it won't come to violence at some point, but I think we can head off a full blown civil war with the power that the people still have which is contained in the Grand Jury and the Petit Jury.  I fully believe that if it were not for vast resistance on the part of patriots nation wide over the last 10 years, we would already be slaves.

In order to understand that power you will have to do a little study. Here are some links.

Grand Jury power and the basis it rests on.

How we might implement the Standing Grand Jury of We The People
http://www.paulstramer.net/2014/01/its-time-to-take-power-away-from.html

The mechanism to implement this is contained in the Writ of Mandamus. See how it is being used in the State of New York as we speak.
http://www.paulstramer.net/2014/01/its-time-to-take-power-away-from.html

Here is how to exercise your power as a juror at the local level.
http://www.paulstramer.net/2009/12/juries-can-stop-runaway-government-you.html

I am saying that with proper understanding we don't have to elect anyone, pass new laws, finance any campaigns, or spend lots of money on political action, but we do need to educate the people as to what their power really is. We need them to understand their 4 votes in our system. 
1.  The Ballot box
2. The Grand Jury box
3. The Trial Jury box
4. The Cartridge box

It's time to take the power away from corrupt judges and give it back to the people

From the Unified New York Supreme Court Bench to Greene County New York Supreme Court

Mandamus to Judge.pdf         and         Mandamus to Clerk.pdf 

Final notice to be delivered by sheriff Monday January 6, 2014.

By what authority, rebuttal      No legal authority.pdf. 

BAR members (attorneys, judges and law professors) claim we the People have no authority to restore Common Law, but they cannot show by what authority they make such a claim, We the People answer them.

These articles were found on the National Liberty Alliance website here:

http://www.nationallibertyalliance.org/breaking-news

----------------------------------

We have stated many times that the way our country has been changed into a corporation and is being forced into admiralty and civil jurisdictions rather than the Constitutionally mandated common law, has all been done by fraud, deception, threat, duress, coercion, and intimidation, and is therefore null and void.

The Writ of Mandamus is one of the solutions to this horrible situation of judicial corruption as is being exercised above.  Read the writs to the judge and clerk above and then the answer to their No Legal Authority argument in the pdf.

These steps are totally lawful and are what is commanded by the 7th amendment to the US Constitution.

"In Suits at common law, where the value in controversy shall exceed twenty dollars, the right of trial by jury shall be preserved, and no fact tried by a jury, shall be otherwise re-examined in any Court of the United States, than according to the rules of the common law."
