"This was exactly, on a higher level, what the US Constitution was framed to avoid. That document ceded enumerated powers to the federal government; all other powers were reserved for the individual states or the people. Therefore, the individual states could nullify federal laws or mandates that exceeded those enumerated powers. Nullify; strike down."
"So many people understandably ask the question “if all this was really going on (like climate engineering), why wouldn’t scientists and agencies speak out about it? This question is easily answered if one simply examines the bigger picture facts. NSA can and very likely is monitoring anyone and everyone that speaks out or has the potential to disclose important truths which could or would be damning for the government. This fact should not be a surprise. Legislation which has just been passed now appears to completely legalize the actions of our police state’s surveillance practices. If you wish to know how your congressman voted on this latest draconian legislation, you can do so at this link. The US and Canada are both actively and passively pressuring scientists and agencies to suppress data they do not want released to the public. Such pressure goes right down the line to those in the field."
"Major energy companies have effectively created a secret law firm of conservative attorneys general to persuade Washington lawmakers to gut environmental regulations, according to an investigation by the New York Times. In return, these senior government officials have received millions of dollars to help them win political campaigns. Attorneys general are the top law enforcement officers for each of the 50 U.S. states, wielding considerable power to sue individuals and companies in the public interest. The Times has documented how at least 12 of these attorney generals – all from the Republican party – have switched sides to become cheerleaders for private industry. (43 of the 50 have to run for election while most of the others are appointed). “Out of public view, corporate representatives and attorneys general are coordinating legal strategy and other efforts to fight federal regulations, according to a review of thousands of emails and court documents and dozens of interviews,” writes Eric Lipton in the New York Times."
"Employers are rushing to embrace the Internet of Things, with its array of smart gadgets, to keep watch on their workers. Studies contend that these devices help reduce theft, boost productivity and weed out lazy, incompetent or abusive employees. Many managers swear by them, including Eric Weakley, owner of R&A Trucking in Oakland, who has outfitted his vehicle fleet with onboard recorders that alert him if the trucks suddenly brake or do something else unusual. But other studies conclude that such monitoring can be so intrusive it undermines an employee's work and well-being, producing anxiety or even depression. The U.S. Office of Technology Assessment, a now-defunct advisory branch of Congress, warned that the trend might lead to poor office morale, staff turnover, worker slowdowns and even "employee sabotage."
"Many preppers and 2nd Amendment proponents believe that the Arms Trade Treaty will first lead to registration of all firearms and when that happens, historically the next step is confiscation through some means. Technically, no treaty can be put into action in the United States unless it has been ratified by a 2/3 majority of the senate. This fact is what most people cite when they are trying to refute any legitimate concerns about the UN Arms Trade Treaty or any other treaty’s potential effect on our country. This sounds well and good and serves to placate some, but for this fail-safe to have any weight you would first need to have a government that followed the letter of the constitution and additionally, that government would need to follow the wishes of the citizens they are representing."
"When Iowa's Department of Transportation announced Wednesday that it was testing driver's licenses on phones, there was fascination. The idea was that there would be a free app that contained your license. When you need to show it, you tap in a PIN code and there it would be. It's easy to forget conventional driver's licenses. They're piddly and fiddly. How much more convenient it would be if they were just stored in our phones, along with our boarding passes, insurance cards and pictures of the lover we met last Friday? Just as I was bathing in the sense of it all, I suffered a momentary lack of oxygenation. Like many others, I'm not sure I would enjoy freely handing my phone to a police officer. They can be curious people -- sometimes, very curious."
"Sensational crime news has clarified the new rules on crime with and without punishment in the United States. Listening to the District Attorneys and Dick Cheney, I’m reassured it’s all for the better. But it’s important to teach your kids and yourself the rules. Step out of line and who know what might happen."
"Brian is an “obsessive craftsman” who believes he can build most anything in his life. On his Oregon farm he has built, or renovated, 5 tiny structures. After being told by the county that he couldn’t erect a yurt, he built a code-approved main house “to give us a place to legally stay”. Once the main house was built, he created several smaller structures (less than 200 square feet) on the property from 90% local materials."
"For many preppers, a worst-case scenario for us would be if the SHTF while we were traveling. If your journey is by car, you can be fairly well-prepared. However, if you are flying, the TSA has basically neutered our ability to care for ourselves in the event of a disaster situation, you know, “for the safety and security of the traveling public,” to use their own words. Didn’t these rulemakers see the movie Cast Away or the series Lost? If your plane crashed and you were stranded on a deserted island, how on earth are you supposed to open a coconut with what you’re allowed to bring along? Remember, what you pack in your checked luggage may not be available in the event of a disaster. You can only count on what you have on your person, and that makes the contents of your carry-on bag particularly vital."
"The Dark Markets are here. From the open air Criagslist, to Silk Road types of markets, to the various auction sites that all transactions are solely in Bitcoin. Yet right now the Dark Markets via Freenet or Onion router network are mostly for items like drugs or what are items that not .gov sanctioned. The open air markets are subject to attack, via .gov and people who wish to steal. Yet what if we in the movement decided to put our goods, our services in the Dark Market? A gigantic Mega Market where we could get real tangible services and goods outside of the realm of oligarch control. A system where reputation scores are a open and public thing, not like the secret credit score that only those who pretend to be our masters can view?"
"Here are some places you might not have known or thought of for tools."
"This is how they hide it from the weather channel… They purchase the weather channels and threaten to fire them if they report on the poisoning of the population. The global power structure has countless tentacles, countless minions who carry out its insatiable need to control everything on the planet. Those in power have gone to insane, unimaginable, and unbelievably destructive lengths in their attempt to control the weather. In order to hide the crimes of ecocide and genocide that are a direct result of the climate engineering assault on our planet, the globalists also needed to control the flow of information to the public that relates to the climate. Thus the purchase of “The Weather Channel” was necessary."
"With the passage of the 2015 federal budget bill, JP Morgan CEO Jamie Dimon got lawmakers to repeal a key part of the 2010 Dodd-Frank financial reform law and allow banks to use the savings accounts of ordinary Americans to gamble in the stock market on behalf of hedge funds, corporations and the rich. A former senior Treasury official in the Obama administration told the Washington Post that the law restores the ability of banks to use the same practices that helped bring down the global economy in 2008. “This was the epicenter of the crisis,” they said. “This is what brought AIG down, what brought Lehman Brothers down.”
"The government claims it has the right take responsibility over every aspect of our lives. They like to make us think that we can’t take care of ourselves, and they love to reassure us that they have everything under control. They tell us what we can have in our food and water, what our kids learn in school, and what constitutes medicine and healthcare. They regulate how our cars and homes should be built, and they dictate the value of our money. They hold a monopoly over the use of violence, and use their courts, police, and spy networks to enforce all of these rules, and many more that too numerous to be mentioned here. But if there is one thing they must do above all else, they must make you feel small. Regulating every stitch of your life isn’t just an act of vindictive power tripping, it’s also designed create an invasive web of reminders. They want every item you possess, every social interaction you hold dear, and every thought in your head to carry the subtle influence of their deeds, so that you cannot look anywhere without being reminded of the government’s god-like power."
"Everyone makes mistakes, but when it comes to Prepping, all of our efforts are directed toward actions that are designed to either keep us safer, prolong our lives or stave off some disaster that could be prevented with a little foresight and planning. When it comes to survival, mistakes can kill you and that is the last thing we want to happen isn’t it?"
"This is a message I received, from a credible source. This message is (allegedly) from a USAF pilot, who flies Aerosol Tankers, as part of the secret Indigo Skyfold (geoengineered aerosol “chemtrail”) program."

"A retired Border Patrol Agent has made some startling claims, as to what we are not being told about the recent surge in illegal aliens over our Southern border, and its consequences. The agent, Zach Taylor, spent many years as a supervisor working along the U.S.-Mexico border in Texas, and as a U.S. Border Patrol Section Chief in Tuscon, Arizona. During a taped interview, Taylor said that the huge numbers of foreign nationals from Central America and Mexico now arriving on our border, are here because Obama is inviting them here, and the recent surge is actually a coordinated event. “The U.S. government has CIA, FBI, DHS, Army, Navy, and Marines in Central America,” said Taylor. And, there is some evidence to suggest Taylor is right.."
"By now most of you are aware of the infamous group formed by FEMA and DHS who recruited 28,000 pastors to be part of the Clergy Response Team—a team of pastors who duty it will be in the event of any beck and call from the Government to round up citizens—be it for a catastrophe, an outbreak, or whatever them deem necessary. These pastors have sold not only their congregations out but also left God at the doorstep by doing so. Recently Pastor Walt Mansfield, one of the first to be recruited by FEMA, boldly shares with Dave Hodges The Common Sense Show, all the devious workings the government is attempting to do through this organization. Everything from rounding up dissidents, to promoting servitude to the government, to forcing people into camps is involved."
"The Social Security Administration, which announced in April that it would stop trying to collect debts from the children of people who were allegedly overpaid benefits decades ago, has continued to demand such payments and now defends that practice in court documents. After The Washington Post reported in April that the Treasury Department had confiscated $75 million in tax refunds due to about 400,000 Americans whose ancestors owed money to Social Security, the agency’s acting commissioner, Carolyn Colvin, said efforts to collect on those old debts would cease immediately. But although some people whose refunds were seized were reimbursed in recent months, some of those same taxpayers have since received new demands from Social Security, asserting that the debts remain and seeking repayment."
"A concerned citizen from College Station, Texas, came forward voicing concerns about a new flu vaccine mandate. Candice Darnold advised VacTruth that a friend is frustrated with her daughter’s daycare. The daycare sent out a letter recently, stating that their board had a meeting and decided that all staff members will be mandated to get the flu vaccine. Any staff that didn’t comply would have to wear a face mask and gloves throughout the flu season, through February. Employers should promote a stigma-free workplace, and making employees wear a mask and gloves while teaching is discriminatory. Concerned about being discriminated against for refusing the vaccine, a staff member submitted a response letter to the daycare. The Board replied in defense of their decision on the matter, not giving employees any other option."
"All the methods to getting your gun to shoot right that I’m going to write briefly about are ones that can be done at home with a good screwdriver set, a plastic-ended mallet, a cleaning kit with a good solvent and oil, and a good, high-quality gun grease. If the balloon goes up, you’re going to need to do work on your guns yourself…and being able to make sure your rifle is doing its best for you without bringing it to an experienced gunsmith will be a valuable skill."
"Whether the mask is labeled fascism, democracy, or dictatorship of the proletariat, our great adversary remains the apparatus—the bureaucracy, the police, the military. Not the one facing us across the frontier of the battle lines, which is not so much our enemy as our brothers’ enemy, but the one that calls itself our protector and makes us its slaves. No matter what the circumstances, the worst betrayal will always be to subordinate ourselves to this apparatus and to trample underfoot, in its service, all human values in ourselves and in others.—Simone Weil, French philosopher and political activist"
"Is self-defense a right or a privilege? Is carrying a firearm protected by the U.S. Constitution or is it a privilege granted to you by your local politician or state police? Those are questions that are becoming more and more important for gun owners to answer. A privilege can me taken away from you by the person who granted you the privilege. You have no control over their actions and they can change the rules anytime they believe it is necessary. Most politicians seem to believe everything is a privilege, they believe as an elected official they have been elevated to the position where all citizens come to them and they grant privileges based on their desire. A Searcy, AR man found out that his State Police believe his ability to carry a firearm for self-defense is a privilege granted by the state. Drew Tanner was shopping in his local Walmart and carrying his firearm on his hip when he was approached by a man wearing jeans and a T-shirt. Tanner was asked if he was an officer of the law, when Tanner responded, ‘No’ the man identified himself as a state trooper."
"The end of the year is a good time to think about electricity, gas and water usage and how you can manage your usage. Work out what you pay, on average, see if you improved your usage figures during the year, or if they still need work. We're a mixed bag here. We are really good with electricity and gas but we struggle with keeping the water usage down. We're still under the local average for water usage, but I want to be better than that."
