It’s All About Control
By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com (Revised)
Ever since the original Patriot Act was passed by Congress in 2001, American civil liberties have steadily shrunk and government control has steadily grown. In a financial crisis, your bank or brokerage can severely restrict the amount of money you can withdraw from your accounts. The government can now assassinate so-called terrorists anywhere in the world, including on U.S. soil. Think Anwar al-Awlaki, the American-born radical Muslim cleric who was assassinated by a U.S. drone strike in September.
It can also indefinitely detain suspected terrorists without charge or due process, all thanks to the National Defense Authorization Act recently signed into law by the President. The government can shut down a website anywhere in the world without due process, just ask Megaupload owner Kim Dotcom from New Zealand. (Yes, that’s his real name.)
As of last Friday, President Obama has authorized the government to take just about whatever it needs in the name of national defense. It is an Executive Order appropriately called “National Defense Resources Preparedness (NDRP).” This allows members of Obama’s Cabinet to take resources such as livestock, water, fuel, farm equipment, vehicles, planes, boats, food and just about anything the government thinks it needs for “defense preparedness.” I am just skimming the surface here as there are many more details in the order. (Click here for the complete Executive Order — National Defense Resources Preparedness – NDRP.) Many are calling this a setup for peacetime martial law. After reading the Executive Order, I don’t see how anyone could disagree with this statement.
My question is why? If all that happened was an extension of the Patriot Act in 2011, I might not worry that much (although, Congress basically traded liberty for so-called security.) But when you look at several of the government’s big power grabbing moves, you can’t help but ask what are they getting ready for? Is it a Middle East war that will probably turn into world war? Is it another financial meltdown worse than the one in 2008? Or, is it all of the above?
On the war question, I have written many posts that say war is a “when” not an “if” scenario. Just last week, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he did not need the approval of the U.S. to attack Iran. Iran has said it has the right to strike first if it feels necessary. Now, there are reports of Russian troops landing in Syria. The U.N. calls this development a “bomb.” The world hasn’t been this close to a global war since the late 1930’s. War would plunge the world into a deep depression so fast that many could be wiped out financially literally overnight.
Another financial meltdown is not just probable but highly likely. In my opinion, and many other experts, another financial crash is also a question of “when” and not “if.” The Fed pumped out $16 trillion in the wake of the last meltdown, and it has frozen interest rates at near 0% through 2014. Talk of a so-called “recovery” is preposterous with a record 46.5 million Americans on food stamps and declining home values despite near record low mortgage rates. Sure, the stock market has doubled since 2009, but it was cut in half after the 2008 meltdown. How is anyone making money? Charles Biderman of the Wall Street research firm “Trim Tabs” recently said, the increase in stocks came mainly from trillions of dollars of new money printed by the Fed. (Click here to hear Mr. Biderman.) Shouldn’t this have fixed the economy? Shouldn’t the banks be able to go back to “mark to market” accounting and not value real estate and mortgage-backed securities at whatever the bankers think they will fetch in the distant future? No way is that going to happen because nothing is fixed from the last meltdown. The failing economy was just papered over with trillions of freshly printed dollars.
Economist Dr. Marc Faber of Gloomdoomandboom.com agrees the economy has been propped up by money printing, but that will not stop a financial crash forever. In a recent interview, he said, “. . . I think eventually the financial system will be an MF Global where you don’t get your money back from the banks and the investment banks and from the mutual funds and so forth and so on. And, so I think everybody has to think to himself, how do I protect myself against such a black swan event.” (Click here for the complete interview from ChrisMartenson.com) Dr. Faber is recommending physical gold and silver as portfolio insurance. (FYI, Faber also recommended buying stocks in 2009, at the very bottom of the last financial meltdown.)
The stock market is not the only part of the economy facing a crash. Star banking analyst Meredith Whitney says there is a “tidal wave” of municipal bond defaults coming. Moneynews.com reported last week, “In late 2010, Whitney told 60 Minutes that municipal defaults could run up into the hundreds of billions of dollars although that hasn’t happened. Maybe not officially, but insolvency is a deepening problem, and defaults are still on the way. . . . So there’s been every effort on the part of the states to prevent this tidal wave of defaults, which is going to happen sooner or later. It’s happening at an accelerating pace. . . .You’re either willing to see it or you’ll shut your eyes, and if people want to tell me, ‘Oh, I was wrong,’ because this hasn’t played out, stay tuned.” (Click here for more on the story.)
I’m betting Ms. Whitney is right, and I think the government is betting the same way. Maybe our leaders feel they have to make all of these liberty killing moves to maintain the union in a financial catastrophe? Maybe the government sees an ominous world war on the horizon? Whatever it sees, it is definitely not good times ahead, and it can’t be that far away. The moves the government has made are not for liberty and freedom–it’s all about control.
You need a better attitude man. I understand your frustration, but to declare yourself a slave for life at 21 …
Just my 2 cents.
Your both right to a point. Being a realest, is not a pessimist. Prepare for the worst, and work for the best possible outcome.
Don’t give up. Intention and belief, very much become reality.
Forget being a corporate slave and start doing something you enjoy, spend your time wisely so at least you can say you did what you wanted to do. You can never have enough money, don’t sacrifice your happiness and health to be shackled in the corporate prisons.
“Died for our freedom” is an illusion too.
I can’t tell better than; ‘The Warmongers’ – Howard S. Katz.

Have faith, because it is really God’s world.
The tides of history change and your whole life is ahead of you. I was 26 when Jimmy Carter was elected president and by 1980 we thought the wheels were coming off of the US, the economy and the world. We saw the US turn to conservatism because Carter’s progressivism made no more sense then than does Obama’s meandering today.
Utopians like the Obama progressives try to make the world conform to their unrealistic ideal. They ultimately fail even though they may cause massive damage in their quest for an unattainable nirvana.
The United States has strong roots of liberty and justice that are sown deeply into the national character. Americans have a compulsion to do things the right way and work very hard to improve their lives. I don’t see the American spirit in this administration. I believe the everyday man will reject all Obama’s hooey and vote him out of office.
You are going through your first round of life’s adversity. It will make you more realistic, more ready to do the hard things to live your life the way you want. My generation, the Boomers, did a terrible job in politics and we tattered our culture and civilization. Your generation can decide what kind of world you will live in. We Boomers won’t be here and it’s up to you to carry on.
The coercion from Obama and his minions won’t last. Already his “power” is waning. The Conservatives can will this thing if we each grab a car full of people and vote on November 6th.
Churchill’s famous quote that “If you’re not a liberal at twenty you have no heart, if you’re not a conservative at forty you have no brain” remains true. Learn from your experience, mold your ideals to reality and you can chart your own course.
Churchill’s wisdom applies to us more today than ever: “Never give in, never give in, never, never, never, never – in nothing, great or small, large or petty – never give in except to convictions of honor and good sense. Never, Never, Never, Never give up.”
Shawn end your slavery.
Returning to real money is the best revenge against the banksters.
The real reason you pay an income tax, is for the privilege of using a private currency.

Demand from your bank, lawful money and the tax goes away, with a tax exemption on lawful money, all of your money is yours.

Sadly you were wrong… America has lost her way. Irrecoverably.
T’was always thus. The only difference is that at 21 you know it. Many others still don’t. Use that insight to your benefit.

Greg, peace time executive order? That executive order could be done in five minutes in an emergency, so, as you so astutely ask why now?
Iran in my mind is the answer. I believe Iran has given us an ultimatum, basically, stop Israel & stay our of Syria. The ultimatum was not in an actual written official form to our State Department but a threat nevertheless through diplomatic channels. Telling is Congress not yelling above the crowd about the Order on both sides of the isle. This is scary and war is coming so the American people better get ready. The Executive Order is in case the Iran, Syria, and Israel war cannot be contained to those two parties but spreads out regionally and into Europe and the West.
Greg, change Iran to Russia as having given the ultimatum, thanks, Art
Most people on this site see Russia and Iran as the same. I for one knew right away what you ment. We mess with Iran, (Were messing with Russia).
Thanks Jay, so many smart people like you on this site. Art B.
How do we protect ourselves if the government just outlaws cash like they are doing in Sweden? You know they will so they can control us. They don’t have to seize gold and silver, just outlaw cash.
Iv been telling people this was happening for a few years now. Its so discouraging. People will vote this year likely for Romney, or Oboma. They both support NDAA and NDPR. welcome to the united nations fascist states of america. I give up. America is in a state of coma.
Id like to say keep up the good work, but it seems theres no stopping the comming dictatorship control.They can have my fake money.
My freedom is worth the most.
It’s definitely about control and at a time when constituent services and protecting the Constitution should be paramount for all legislators, it has become the exact opposite. Simultaneously, the Federal Reserve and its district banks announced Tuesday that it earned $77.4 billion last year, the second-highest level in the central bank’s history.
There is a parasite that will cut off a fish’s tongue and replace it with itself as the fish’s new tongue. Kinda like, the federal reserve cutting out true money and using fiat backed parasitic crap.
And once again we just stand by and watch it happen. The people of this country are striking out looking as obama hurls fast balls right down the middle. When will we finally take a swing and and collectively call bull %&@#. I guess its just easier to walk back to the dugout and take our seat on the losing bench time after time. Thanks for the updates greg. and for doing the job so many are afraid to do.
If people don’t want to see what is right in their face, it won’t matter who told. No one can say you didn’t try!
What is amazing to me is how many people refuse to see.
Preparation is key to survival.
The Patriot Act, NDAA, and the latest Exec Order are bad enough. But the incremental militarization of local police forces should be as, if not more, alarming. So now the deconstruction of the 1st, 4th and 5th Amendments have taken place; will the 10th Amendment re States’ Rights be similarly abrogated? When you think about it, the ability to secede from Federal control is important.
Muni defaults another blow for insurers
“(Reuters) – A growing number of U.S. cities are choosing to fund essential services like public safety and garbage collection over making payments on their outstanding debt, as rising costs and falling revenue deplete their budgets.
So far, the bond defaults are not roiling the $3.7 trillion municipal market because insurance companies are stepping in to make payments to bond holders in some cases. But defaults on insured bonds are putting pressure on these insurers, which never fully recovered from the last decade’s financial crisis.”
Here’s a thought:
How do prisons keep the prisoners focused on each other and not on the prison gaurds? They enable and maintain racial division and conflict, so that prisoners spend the majority of the time seeking protection from and by each other, while the gaurds remain secondary concerns.
Watch the media as we move forward, prior to implementation of these new laws. We’re seeing some of it now with the awful murder and police mismanagement of a black teen in Florida, that is being spun in media to incite racial division and encourage further attacks on Constitutional rights. When the people are more concerned and worried about each other than they are of unConstitutional policies that take away liberty, the policies will be much easier to enforce.
I’m not a psychologist or social scientist by any stretch of the imagination, but if I were planning to implement a shutdown of the Constitution and a severe restriction of civil liberties, I’d be trying to convince people that there’s a bigger enemy out there than me (the government). That could be racism just as easily as it could be some external threat. Or a combination.
you may not be a psychologist, but your right on target.distraction is the controllers favorite tool. wag the dog.
When O. was campaigning, it came to me, and I told my wife, that O. was a “ringer”. A “ringer” is an old idiom for a fake substitute. A “ringer” could have been a poor horse that looked almost identical to the good horse you wanted to buy, and they tried to palm the poor one off as the one you wanted. At first I thought it meant he was somebody’s puppet, which could still be true, but it is clear now: he was posing as an American, but he is not. I read an experts’iinvestigative report which proved his birth certificate was a fake. Now Sheriff Joe down here in Phoenix and his crew arrived at the same conclusion. There is other fraud involved also, by O. His own grandma said she was in the room with him when he was born–in Kenya. I believe the Libs, along with many other politicians, know this, but you’re right; It’s All About Control. Fiddlin
I’m certainly not an Obama fan, but …if one of Obama’s parents was an American when Obama was born, doesn’t that make him a naturally born American citizen? Regardless of where the birth took place?
I don’t have an answer for Sherrif Joe’s forensic claims on the electronic copy of the birth certificate, although I do know that electronic document images in my idustry are often create with layers and groupings of imagery when using certain scanning technology etc, so I would personally need to see more detail than the untechnical explanations he’s provided to support his claims. I’m not saying I disagree – just that the claims so far don’t have enough detail to demonstrate tampering versus scanning technology.
My personal opinion is that the birth certificate issue is a non-starter (wasn’t his mother an American when he was born?) and is pushed by the corporate media because there’s a bigger fish swimming nearby that they don’t want people to be thinking about.
Obama wouldn’t be in office,if the leadership in the Pentagon and DC didn’t want it. The insiders have a long range plan, it’s just how it is.
Oil is everything for the big money controllers it’s that simple. A man can be honest but being honest can get you killed for the shirt on your back.
Gang warfare is how the world is split up and has been for a long time.
The reason American are scared is because off 9/11 and the killing of Americans. We Americans on that day became part of the third world little people.
The Pentagon needs mass oil everyday,mass food,mass healthcare,and they have the guns to take what they need. 9/11 was done to make Americans look like the victim. This is all a long range plan and this plan is why Bankers don’t go to jail, the Bankers are just like are troops.
The only thing us little people can do is stay out of the way are join a gang and become a tool for others.
With a little luck the killing will start cutting into the profits of the insiders and we will have some peace for a few years.
The outsiders kids always hear the war drums, the insiders kids own the drums. Peace LOL
I saw the video of President’s Obama’s grandmother in Kenya too, and I believed her. Of course, a person can’t help where he was born or what his parents told him about where he was born, but the fact is he is nevertheless not constitutional eligible for the office. President Obama’s grandmother is quite proud of him and the fact that she was there at his birth. The U-tube video is still out there if someone wants to judge for themselves, just google president obama’s grandmother kenya. The president might not even know that his parents faked his birth certificate for an Hawaiian birth instead of Kenya so I don’t necessary blame the President if he was lied to in the first instance. However, the President is a very smart man and probably knows at some level why and how this issue came into being. I think I would trust my grandmother over some birth certificate that anyone could have procured in Hawaii circa 1960, that is, if I didn’t want to admit it so as to ruin a future political career.
“Shouldn’t the banks be able to go back to “mark to market” accounting and not value real estate and mortgage-backed securities at whatever the bankers think they will fetch in the distant future?”
Maybe this is why they need inflation so the “mark to market” prices will catch up in devalued dollars?
just a thought
Government control has grown in excess as has government size, and mounting cost, it is a government completly out of control and needs to to be stopped in it’s tracks, otherwise you will be looking at a very harsh unprotected environment in which to exist and sustain any quality of life.
These people we put in office were elected and not anointed, it is time that reality were imposed on them as a reminder to who it is that runs this government. Repair and maintenance of this Constitutional government was never intended to be easy but it has to be a part of our lives.
Our government and businesses can only fake it for so long. There will come a time when the scales are tipped and there will be no going back to the old ways. The american people can be distracted for a while but they are also eager to jump on a band wagon and when their eyes are finally opened, there will be a reaction. That is why the evils being done today are so rampant. I have taken my money out of the banks and diversifies into silver and gold, food and fuel, and other supplies. There are many like me and more everyday. As we increase in numbers we are less and less oddballs and others will start to take notice. That’s when the scales will tip. A run on the bank or a new (staged) threat is all it will take to trigger the event and then watch all hell break out. There will be no sidelines or spectators. We all will be participants when the scales tip.
I know a lot of people disregard the Bible, but this War with Iran was foretold over 2000 years ago. In Ezekiel Chapters 38-39, Ezekiel called out the names of several gentile nations that would form a ‘Coalition’ in the ‘latter days’ and go to war against Israel:
He named the following Nations:
Gog of Magog- Modern day Russia
Gomer- Modern day ‘southern’ Russia
Persia- Modern day Iran
Togarmah- Modern day Turkey
“And many people with you”, -Probably, Syria, Lebanon, Egypt, and other Muslim nations.
Ezek. 38:14-16-“Therefore prophesy and say to Gog [Russia], Thus says the Lord God: On that day when MY people Israel dwell safely, will you not know it? Then you will come from your place out of the far north, you and many peoples with you, all of them, a great company and a mighty army. You will come up against My people Israel ‘like a cloud’, to cover the land. It will be in the ‘latter days’…
All we can do is get our ‘spiritual houses’in order [That is turn to the Lord]stock up on food, supplies,fuel,and try to protect our assets [buy some gold & silver,and survive the best we can] And more important than anything is to pray,pray,pray.
I also agree with the gentleman above. Romney or Obama will just continue to be puppets on a string for the Elite caring out their marching orders to turn American into a One World Government. [The ‘Beast’ of Rev. 13].
I try not to read more into things, I just take the Bible as literal as possible. It was prophesied that Israel would return to their land over 2000 years ago,[Jeremiah] and the generation that was alive at that time would see Christ’s return. That was well before the UN or League of Nations existed.
Such thought provoking questions take ‘me’ away from the truth.
So I just stick to what the Bible teaches., but thanks for the commentary.
I’m a believer! The good news is that Russia and their co-horts don’t
win and it will also mean a true great king will rule.
Valerie, interesting comment. A lot of folks share your sentiments.
Here’s an interesting thought: What if the Israel of today was created by the same globalists who created the Russia of today and who have had control of Iran for the last 50 years?
Do some research and find out who was behind the push for an Israeli state, long before WWII and WWI. The first offical act of the UN was to create Israel. Who was behind creation the UN? Also, the first attempted act of the League of Nations was the creation of Israel. Who created the League of Nations? Ask yourself this as well: Did your history class teach you everything?
And never forget that the 1979 Iranian revolution was planned in the White House. Do you trust what your media is reporting? Do you trust what our government is telling us? Do you ever wonder why they don’t remind you that the Islamic Revolution was orchestrated by CIA and MI6? Do you ever wonder why the media doesn’t make a public fuss about the private meetings that Iran’s President usually holds in NYC with top US banking, media, and government officials at the Council on Foreign Relations when he visits the UN?
And how does that tie back to Ezekiel? If you believe in a God and a Satan, the tie is critical. Who is the greatest deceiver? Who wants you to worship him instead of God? And what does he need in place in the world to do that?
An integrated economic system, maybe?
A single world system of power, maybe?
Destruction of strong theocracies who believe in a single God of Abraham and Isaac, maybe?
Who is pushing global economic integration and destruction of theocracies?
I’m just scratching the surface here because there is a LOT more to think about regarding these issues, how they are connected to revelation theology, and how they can be used to steer people away from asking the right questions and seeing serious discrepancies that are staring them in the face, but aren’t recognizeable when not cast in the correct light.
Who is the great deceiver? You know that answer. I’m betting that if you’re as smart as I think you are, and if you take my questions seriously, you’ll do some good research and reach one or two disturbing conclusions on your own about world government, Israel, and Revelation that I haven’t mentioned here, if your mind is open and if you trust your own sense of logic over and above what you’ve been told by others. Answer my questions to yourself and then ask yourself this: If you were Satan and wanted control of humanity, and was aware of the bible and of revelation theology, as the great deceiver, what would your plan be to gain the control and the faith of all humanity? Wouldn’t you duplicate revelation, only the final return of Christ would be you, vanquishing a false Satan?
Food for thought, with lots of reality. Who created modern Israel? Who created modern Russia? Who is pushing for an integrated world order? Who is laying the foundation for global control over all humantiy? Have you read UN Agenda 21?
Sean….excellent post and I agree with your thoughts on the various ‘deceptions’ being played out every day in the political arena that are designed to keep us confused, distracted and constantly worry about the future of our great country.
IMO, we’ve been under tremendous assault for some time by those (self annointed) ‘media/political elite’ who practice ‘psycho-politics’ ( Soviet art of brainwashing ) whose goal has been a total tranformation of this country….i.e – open borders, acceptance of abortion and alternative lifestyles, a global business approach that has weakened our entire economic picture, fedgov control of almost everything (as per the Communist Manifesto)etc.
Also, they control the media and entertainment industry to such a degree that they can easily create and manipulate events that mirror bibical prophecy to a point that it has a paralyzing effect on Bible believing Christians…..a condition that also been called the ‘never ending end times’. Perhaps our best move would be to ignore the TV preachers, truth impaired politicians and mainstream mediots and take comfort in Matthew 24:36.
I’m not sure where my comments implied anything negative or inclusive of Jewish people, so I don’t know where you’re reading that here. If my comments seem to allude to something like that, I can assure you that it is ABSOLUTELY NOT intentional.
I personally love the Jewish faith. I consider it the foundation of the Christian faith that I was raised under, and the God I consider my savior was born, raised, and lived as a Jew.
If there’s concern that I was using veiled references, please identify them and I’ll gladly explain.
I like the way you police your blog to maintain integrity but in this case I think we have our lines crossed because you’re reading something that I didn’t say.
Greg…my comments were not intended to be an indictment (veiled or otherwise) against any particular group because our problems are so pervasive and have been building for so long that it’s impossible to pinpoint any particlar race or religion for our current situation. Some day we may know the truth and my guess is that there will be plenty of blame to go around. Also, I respect your efforts too much to engage in any demeaning language that would detract from the mission of your site and others just like it.
Valerie, I praise and commend you for your interest in Bible prophecy. For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy. May we all take advantage of non-believers’ heightened awareness of end times events in order to lead them to the Savior, Who rescues us from God’s wrath to come.
If you are willing to consider a further understanding of future events than you have learned so far, may I suggest a few topics to study. Rather than try to explain them to you and risk stirring up resistance, allow me to point you to puzzle parts which you can fit together for yourself. You will appreciate it more that way.
From http://www.biblegateway.com, print Revelation 19:11-20:3, Revelation 20:4-6, and Revelation 20:7-14 on different sheets of paper. Mark them “Before”, “Millennium”, and “After”. One would expect there to be Old Testament prophecies which foretell each of these three major events.
Next, look at each Old Testament prophecy and list it on one of the three sheets of paper.
Zechariah 14:1-5 (or perhaps 14:1-9)
(possibly Ezekiel 34 and 35?)
Zech 14:6-11 (or maybe 14:10-11)
Ezek 36 and 37
Ezek 38 and 39
There are some errors in the traditional doctrines about future things as tabulated or systematized by fundamentalist scholars such as Dr. C. I. Scofield in 1917 (as much as I value my Scofield notes). Those mistakes are regarded as sacred cows, sacrosanct for the sake of unity in the body, and never corrected and published because factions would arise (1 Cor 3 and 11:19). Those who have studied what goes where must simply hold their peace and pray that others will study the scriptures to see if those things they are taught are so.
There are many other such “better renderings” that explain the word of God more accurately than the widely taught, accepted standard, “good enough, don’t rock the boat” interpretations. For example, you do well to understand that in Rev. 13:1-8, “the beast from the Sea” (as viewed from Patmos) is the coming Eurocentric global government/universal religion. What then is “the beast from the Land” (as viewed from Patmos), the false (or counterfeit) prophet of Rev. 13:11-18? (You don’t have to tell anyone or even say it aloud.)
Right on Valerie:
Our country is in the crosshairs of biblical prophecy as we speak. America is not mentioned in the last days but the fall of it will factor mightily in what is to come. Obama is a pawn in a much greater scheme. Congress has become totally irrelevant and are just a bunch of yappers. We are in a dictatorship and headed full speed toward the fulfillment of bible predictions in the book of Revelation. Pray for our country! All is not lost if you put your trust in Jesus. A good read for anyone that will knock your socks off is a book called The Harbinger by Jonathan Cahn. Written by a Jewish Rabbi about Gods warnings and judgement to an unrepentant America, it details why and how God will try and wake up a nation that has gone astray.
Here is a quote from an article in Veterans Today last December:
“Perhaps this is a good time to remind swindled American taxpayers that totalitarianism is what comes of funding a perpetual warfare state that spies on all global communications, builds the greatest military in human history, assassinates foreign leaders, overthrows elected governments, invades small nations based on lies to seize their natural resources, and threatens the world from its 800 military bases.” (http://www.veteranstoday.com/2011/12/08/defense-authorization-act-will-destroy-bill-of-rights/)
With the Constitution slowly shattered by the Patriot Act, the NDAA and the NDRP, and there is no opposition from the “Do Nothing” Congress and the “Dishonorable” Supreme Court, Obama can assume sole and absolute power to control the country. The good old United States of America will become a totalitarianism country with democratic country look.
The sad fact is – we stand up for human rights in other countries for so many years and now we worry about losing our own rights and freedom.
Looks like America is ‘reaping’ the whirlwind. Or should I say ‘whirlwinds’, and I mean literally.
I guess we better get some fire arms before they outlaw that too.
I read on some MSM sites that the latest executive order is nothing out of ordinary and that Bush and some presidents before did the same. How true is this?
‘The Act has been reauthorized and passed through Congress many times, most recently in 2008 by President Bush, who had previously re-authorized it in 2003. President Clinton did the same in 1994.’
Greg, Your reaction here is pretty strong. Yes, I am scared to all the new EO and laws Obama is signing, taking, what seems my constitutional rights away.
But I went to the link provided by Vikram Ranade, here is what caught my attention:
“This Executive Order reauthorizes and “legalizes” that process, in the same way every Administration has done for the past sixty-two years.
If this is a coup, it already happened long ago.”
If Obama has added NEW powers, show me! I would like to see and hear so I to can be more concerned.
Yes! Sum of the whole; not the one thing.
You can read the WHOLE executive order on the http://www.whitehouse.gov website. It’s very disturbing to say the least. I have two sons that that could be drafted. Is Mr. Obama going to draft his girls too? I think not!
Also we need to take into consideration that the previous presidents are NOT Obama. They did not appear to have a dictatorship mentally, constitutional law ignoring, government controlling, power grabbing nature.
In my opinion Obama is the most corrupt, anti-God president that I can remember in my lifetime. Where is His ‘fear’ of God?
He ‘says’ that he’s a Christian, yeah right.
I do not trust him and I believe that he is capable of anything! And, now he’s getting ‘chummy’ with the Russians.
My God, he’s embracing ALL of the enemies of Israel, [Ezekiel 38-39], yet he smiles and says “I’ve got your back” Israel.
I don’t think Israel has room left, for any more knives in their backs Mr.Obama.
God help them and us.
Fear , the best way to control fear is to do something to improve your lively hood everyday.
Grow a little garden, fresh food even part of the year will build better health. Back in the 50s many people grew food in the back yard.
Fruit trees should be planted in ever yard are given as a gift. I know this women who just takes old peoples yards over and take care of the place and grows food. She lives in a apartment so it’s a good system for both sides.
Growing food is natural for humans,take the shoes off. Feel the warm soil cleaning the dead skin off them old feet. Peace
Its about WAR! The war drums get louder every day.

The Republican chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, Peter King, said the Iranian-backed militant group Hezbollah may have hundreds of operatives based in the United States
“Now, as Iran moves closer to nuclear weapons, and there is increasing concern over war between Iran and Israel, we must also focus on Iran’s secret operatives and their number one terrorist proxy force, Hezbollah, which we know is in America,” said King.
King said there are 84 Iranian diplomats in New York at the United Nations and in Washington, some of whom he said are likely to be spies
Greg, you state: “National Defense Resources Preparedness (NDRP).” This allows members of Obama’s Cabinet to take resources such as livestock, water, fuel, farm equipment, vehicles, planes, boats, food and just about anything the government thinks it needs for “defense preparedness.”
A friend of mine pointed me to this link: http://www.snopes.com/politics/obama/ndrp.asp
On this site it states: “Note what this EO specifically orders: identify, assess, be prepared, improve, foster cooperation. NONE of these items claim authority to SEIZE private property and place them at the personal disposal of Obama.”
It also goes on to state and answers your question as to “why?” in this fashion: “In 1994, we didn’t have a Department of Homeland Security, for instance, and some of these functions would naturally fall to DHS.”
As to the why, according to this site, it is just updating the wording, updating a similar order issued by President Bill Clinton in 1994 and amended several times since.
What I don’t like about what President Obama is doing is, doing it as if in the dead of night when he thinks no one will notice.
I remember well how he made it known his administration would be open and transparent to the American public. In my opinion it has been turning out to be just the opposite.
Needless to say how disappointed I am with the integrity of our President.
I sure wish you – and your reporting – were on CNN tonight…
a rather complete expose…..
brings to mind obama being
similar to the little olde lady who sat on rocking chair with
a bundle of sticks of dynamite held by her knees while her left
hand held the 1/2 inch fuse near the end to be lighted and with her
right hand lit the end of the fuse with a flame, then she started
to contemplate her navel during which time the burning end of the
fuse disappeared into the dynamite and it all went boom boom and
next she knew she was in guatanimo bay as a prisoner of war,,,,,
meaning the guy who signed this exec order is nervous and pressured
with the election at hand, thus will let this first salvo by you
burn itself out, but another salvo and he is likely to fire back
these are not normal times, and correct expository news is not
allowed given the gist of this exec order, so if i dont see yours
in Sinclair’s and or if i dont see sinclair anymore i will figure
you and he are in guantamino bay etc etc
Greg, #2 of 2 of today
keep in mind obama has intentionally done what he wanted to do
with usa, and he knew if he stepprd on Putin’s toes via Syria
Putin would bite the bait and enter into WW-3, and so it goes,
but he obama has over $300 million contributions to his political
campaign thus i suspect he will not run for re-elect but retire
and write books and sell used cars,
knowing that loot when he
quits politics is tax exempt for him to play other games with
thus it would be stupid to risk his kids and wife and self— life
and limb and etc, meaning if the guys who want him out take him out
they will first take his daughters out so he can watch his wife
go bonkers then take her out so he has to beat his meat while
he is being quarter boiled in oiil, impaled, and otherwise trashed
Home land security orders 450 MILLION rounds of .40 cal !
That just gives me a safe, warm, fuzzy feeling. I know what Americore lackies will be holstering this season.
Lets not forget Anwar al Awlaki was killed before the people who he was accused of “motivating” even went to trial for their crimes and Dr Hassan spent a year telling his superiors he did not want to deploy to the middle east before his rampage, do they not bear even more responsibility than al Awlaki? And what did Anwar’s 16 yr old son do to warrant killing? A N.W.O. will be built on the ashes of the American Empire, much in the same way the American Empire was built on the ashes of the British Empire post WW2, I believe our military is being busted up physically and mentally on purpose to integrate it into global government. Look at the massacre stories out of Afghanistan and the suicide rates of our soldiers, look at Gen Dempsey telling Sen Sessions the U.S military answers to the UN and NATO not to Congress, the newest Marine recruitment ad’s don’t mention the words United States, America or U.S. The biggest wrinkle I see in the latest E.O. is section 3, which takes the power of the purse away from Congress and the peacetime provisions of said powers. And one last thing Greg, possibly the Battle of Midway may be a better cautionary tale for our future adventures in the Straits of Hormuz, we playing the role of the Japanese of course.
Global government meaning New World Order. I hope everyone here that’s talking about the N.W.O are not supposed to know about it. I’m not a huge conspiracy theorist but I know a thing or two. The government right now has three lists: Red, Blue, Yellow. The red list is for people who are trying to expose them. Example: Michael Jackson tried to tell everyone this and he had a huge crowd with him. He tried to expose the government and guess what they did? That’s when the rumor that he had supposedly molested a child when he really didn’t. That just shows how bad our government is. Ok, so now onto the blue list. The blue list is people talking about like telling others about what’s really going on. Last but not least, the yellow list. That list is for people who don’t know squat or don’t wanna know squat about the government and what evil schemes they’re up to. WIth that being said, not everyone knows about this N.W.O.. So the majority of people will be in the yellow list. Our government can’t control all of us so they will round us up in groups and the 50 states will be divided into 10 categories. They will try to take us to a “better place” when really its a concentration camp. Those camps are called Rex 84 camps. Rex means (R)eadiness Exercise 1984. I will post a link on here explaining everything: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rex_84
So with that being said, no offense to any Jews but history is repeating itself as we speak. At any given time, Obama can sign that Executive Order and boom! The round ups (I forgot to mention about the red list details, people in the red list will be woken up and dragged out of their house at 4 am and killed at a concentration camp immediately and N.W.O will be in affect in no time.
yes and amen valerie and wheatcountry…been trying to tell this for years to friends and family how the once great super power of the world is not mentioned in end times prophecy.Its so sad as i think people just want to plug their ears put their head in the sand only to pull them out to watch sports or porn while the elite slowly steal their wealth.
xxxxx ya good advice,no fear here when you are plugged in to the king of kings,ah come sweet Jesus.
good site thanks greg…cheers
Eventually the government will control everything by all means of transportation, food, etc. When all this happens in Summer of 2012, I heard that gas prices are going to go up to like $4.50/gal. If we go into war with Iran, our gas prices will sky rocket probably going over $10/gal. They will also have a food limit or rationing basically. It will probably be against the law to have more food in your refrigerator then what they tell you what you can have.
My best advice I can give anybody right now: Go buy a gun and ammo. Not for defending against police/army or whatever. You know what’s going to happen if food goes short; people are going to start robbing houses for food and other items. That could mean dangerous to anybody so with that use a gun as means of protection and please make sure you don’t buy the gun off the streets. Make sure you get it legally and most importantly “BE RESPONSIBLE!” Thanks for reading everyone.
i have read rumors that a canadian newpaper outed an Obama DHS insider, who stated that the whole NDRP was set up, that O insiders were prepared to fake an assasination, all in the hopes to start a race riot in the us…………encouraging looting and rioting. All so that O could institute his “martial law”, which was the point of NDRP. He will have it happen during the elections, and totally take over this country.From what i have read, what people are upset about is that he now has that power during war time or peace time. During peacetime, the govt can steal your farm, your store, your company??? wtf
I am taking AO’s advice and protecting my own stuff.
Know your history or you are condemned to repeat it. This is not the first time that sociopaths have tried to take over the world. It has happened many times before and no one has ever succeeded. Unfortunately, millions of people always die in the process.
If you are not prepared NOW to take care of your loved ones, it may be too late. We live in a world where on any given day, the psychopaths may implement what they have been planning for decades if not centuries.
Millions of people are going to perish. Will you be one of them?
Please watch this great video.
Greg,you rock! Stay safe my friend.
Our government is going to basically take away our rights. Not much we can do except watch it all happen in time ! I smell inflation right around the corner. It’s all possible. Once rationing starts up, people will eventually go crazy because your trying to survive on hunger and I know for a fact that your not going to sit there and starve. Your going to go rob some houses for food and this is where my advice comes in: Get a gun and ammo. Not to defend against the police/military to protect your belongings but to kill the people trying to take your food but not only that but they may try to harm or even kill you. It will eventually come down to killing people to survive. That’s all I want to say for now. Thanks for the information, Greg. Keep us updated ! 🙂
Greg so you’re saying don’t buy GOLD and SILVER because of Faber’s past bad stock advice??
Are you ready for an all out revolt?? will you be a part in it?
Big questions from a small man.
Greg. if you could interview anyone behind locked doors for 1 hr. who would it be?
Been following Solar cycles lately? Sun spots are following a pattern that looks like a repeat of the Maunder Minimum (also known as “the little ice age”). Global warming presents some mild local inconveniences, argueably more than offset by increased agricultural production around the globe. A deep, prolonged cooling cycle would result in serious food shortages, ++ungood in a world with ~7 billion people. If you believe that there is at least some competency in Washington, and if those in charge have at least some belief that a repeat of the Maunder Miniunum is possible (regardless of their public retoric), you would hope that they would make contigency plans for food production/distribution and providing basic services that sound oddly like the heart of this executive order. Of course, that’s assuming that there’s competency in Washington, and that any grain of public service is not being subverted by private agendas…
@Random, the solar cycle, “hot, to not quite as hot, and back to hot,” takes hundreds of years to change significantly – probably a millennium or more to do a full cycle. When Erik (or Eirik) the Red was settling the west coast of Greenland (c. 985), Greenland was green. When Leif the Lucky, Erik’s son, was settling the northern tip of Newfoundland at l’Anse aux Meadows (c. 1004), he found the grass to be green year round. But between 1500 and 1700, northern Europe could have been mistaken for Greenland of yore, and circumnavigating Cape Horn was perilous indeed, if even possible. The cold temperatures in Europe must have been strong encouragement to explore the Caribbean.
If we are at or near a heat peak, the temps could be going up a bit more or going down a bit. But even if the warming cycle has another hundred years or more to run until it peaks, the sine curve is pretty close to flat at the top and bottom, meaning that climate is fairly stable at the extremes, with no rapid changes. The most rapid climate change is at the mid-point of the sine curve, halfway between hottest and coldest. Don’t bet on rapid climate change for at least the next couple of hundred years.
Yes it’s about control & keeping power in the hands of the elite. This story is about the Greek people coping with a economic crash & coup at the same time. Some of the other ‘related articles’ on the site are, ‘Gadhafi’s Gold-money Plan Would have Devastated Dollar’. Both are worth the time to read. http://thenewamerican.com/world-mainmenu-26/europe-mainmenu-35/11265-greeks-adopt-alternative-currencies-as-economy-implodes.
We know Obama & past presidents are just chosen puppets of the elites who fear Americans reactions to their failed policies, so they have got these unconstitutional laws passed for their own protection. I hope other States would follow what many of the States are doing to counter the federal government heavy hands on States Rights by passing their own laws. It’s bad enough that States have to fight NDAA or EO’s, also they have to fight against UN mandates as Tennessee has just done. I have lost the link to the vote in Nashville, but I am sure it’s on the TN.gov web site.
The Greek are doing what comes natural when the economic/monetary system is broken, they are not alone & most know this!
The bill passed.
Valerie’s Biblical analysis is right on!
Since the Gog-Magog war requires Israel to be “at peace”, that war will be preceded by the Psalm chapter 83 war when Israel appears to protect herself with heavy (nuclear?)destruction of Iran and friends. Then when Israel is “at peace”, as in Ezekiel chapters 38 and 39, Gog and Magog etc. will step in to be thoroughly trounced by God Himself. This will set the stage for the Anti-Christ to surface, make peace with Israel for 3 1/2 years. Then he will turn on her and finally Israel will awaken to the reality that Jesus Christ is really the promised Messiah! And Israel, as a surviving nation, will accept Him! This will be followed by the well known battle of Armeggedon, which will bring King Jesus to earth to wrap it up, Revelation 19. He, in victory, will introduce His 1000 year kingdom on earth, followed by His Great White Throne Judgement Revelation chapters 20, 21 and 22!
At some point before the worst of all that hell breaking loose, Jesus is coming in a surprise, early, visit, not touching down on earth, to take His true believers out of the worst of it! This is known as the Rapture of 1st Thessalonians 4:13-18.
Now, thinking persons should smarten up, seeing the world racing toward what the Bible prophecied thousands of years ago, and accept the free gift of salvation, getting on the winning side with King Jesus! See John 3:16, Ephesians 2:8-9 among many other deliverance passages. Tragically, only a small minority are smart enough to accept His solution – – see Matthew 7:13-29.
And, interestingly, the USA doesn’t appear in all this prophecy! We are racing toward a position of impotence as a nation, taring down what was established by our fore fathers. During all this, our only serious, godly contribution, is to get this deliverance message out to the world. Thankfully, technology is helping serious believers do just that! Speed the Day!
Amen Brother, even so Lord Jesus…come.
Good overview of the situation IMO.
Just my over all thoughts as to this:
Don’t forget the 3 rule. Air, Water, Food. (Start there) Nickels are worth 6.5 cents in metal (If silver is poor mans gold, perhaps Nickel could be a poorer mans silver?) Common things will be of great value to ones own self, as well as to others, in the event of financial catastrophe.
As a stored value, only a fool would argue with Silver and gold. Is there any other investment more sure? But prepare to be around to cash in 🙂
Reading the talk backs ,what Sean said really got my attention as I see the government media inflaming this tragedy on a national level.
I hope I’m wrong but I get the feeling that agitators and agent provocateur’s will be in the crowd in Sanford Florida tonight.
Valerie’s got the best advice about getting our house in order.
On the list of nations coming down to attack Israel with Russia it’s presumptuous to add “Syria, Lebanon, Egypt ” because in this coming war ,Israel will have wiped them out.(that is why they are not mentioned) and this will be the hook in the jaw to bring the remaining surrounding nations with Russia against Israel.
America is in the bible as you would expect God not to ignore a superpower at this late hour,it will be the main target,’great Satan’ of the Iran,Russia,China confederation.
Revelation 6:3-4 mentions the rider on the red horse taking peace from the earth, (red China,red Russia and Iran)
read Jeremiah 51,Isaiah 47,Obadiah and Revelation 18 for the final end of America Babylon.
The states attorney on the case stepped down this evening. Maybe due to unethical or illegal external pressure? This case is an intentionally charged powder keg. I feel very sad for the family, being used like this for political purposes. And for all of the people across the.U.S. who are being drawn in and manipulated because they don’t have the insight or perspective to understand how they are being manipulated for a specific set of purposes. very sad.
Thanks for the scripture references!
1 Thessalonians 5:1 But of the times and seasons brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you.
2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.
3 For when they say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.
4 But ye brethren are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.
Hi Greg: I’ve said this before, and I will say it again: There can be no remotely rational purpose for a) pursuing a war with Iran and b) the continuous foundation of everything “legally”/technologically necessary for the very swift/efficient transforming of the U.S. into a completely locked-down, dictatorial max-security state other than point b, and as everybody by now knows,it is only a question of how and when, not if this utterly absurd (think of it as the equivalent of two men running up on a pregnant woman,,and threatening her with assault and battery if she doesn’t give her virginity to them) and likely disastrous conflict will ensue, probably in less than three months if not before or by May. The elite here knows its financial Ponzi scheme is teetering on the brink of an epic and catastrophic collapse sooner rather than later and they need a war to give them the opportunity to declare national emergency and martial law most likely in wake of an alleged terror incident of likely far greater devastation than the September 11 attacks, and perhaps more than a single act of mass death and destruction here and abroad to incite maximal panic and submission to authority. Even Iran I suspect is not averse to being attacked as being perceived as a martyr-victim
of wanton U.S./Israeli aggression shall doubtless well serve their political interests, and bind the more secular elements of Iranian society firmly behind the ayatollahs. Like Charlie Heston declared, it’s a madhouse, and he was only dealing with semi-civilized apes, mind you. Again, my question is and shall continue to be how will most Americans respond when the SSHTF? This I know shall not only determine the country’s future but also its historical reputation, and possibly its epitaph.
Keep up the good work, it’s appreciated.
P.S. I read where CNN essentially fired you, for daring to tell the truth back in 2008. I wouldn’t sweat it, if you had continued lying with those rats you’d be so flea-bitten with plague by now, you’d be eligible to guest star on that show The Walking Dead. CNN will bear much responsibility when war with Iran and all its consequences come, and I only hope France has a few old guillotines, with rusty scarlet blades, to loan us when their hour of inevitable reckoning arrives.
Is it me or is history repeating itself ?
The Republicans seem to be specializing in returning women to
the status of chattel. Busting workers, suppressing voters.
Great choice…Obama vs. the creepy Republicans with the Bibles.
UGH!! I wish I were in some quiet, out of the way country..
Greg, along these same lines did you see this story?
Homeland Security signed a contract for 450 million rounds of 40 S&W ammo. Why that much ammo? That’s ammo for an army not a law enforcement agency.
You know all of this reminds me of the little boy who cried woof-woof so many time that when they finally showed up no one came to help.
Is this what all of you are doing —the wolf is in the white house—remove the wolf and get it over before it is too late.
“The government can now assassinate so-called terrorists anywhere in the world, including on U.S. soil. Think Anwar al-Awlaki, the American-born radical Muslim cleric who was assassinated by a U.S. drone strike in September.”
And the problem with this is?
Read Vince Flynns “Term Limits”. Now THAT’S what I’m talkin’ about.
What are they preparing for? Thank you for your intiail thoughts on this question, yet I don’t think you’ve fully answered the question. Yes, there could be war or a financial crisis. However I feel this is too abstract an answer to answer your question.
If they could appropriate just about anything in the name of national defense are they not preparing for a situation in which the social ordr has broken down? And what would this look like if it warrants the appropriating of livestock, fuel, food, vehicles,etc?
Nevertheless, thank you for raising our consciousness with regard to these unfoldings…
How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time. How do you shred the Constitution? One bite at a time. Executive orders are so often ‘over-looked’, taken for granted, and most often ignored until something later happens to bring them to our attention.
WE need to “think” and become more aware of what is being done to our country ‘one bite at a time’ … this trend is not good for America.
Well if worse gets as worse can get……..these executive orders will all be null and void lmao. Nukes start raining on the US…..you think cops are gona be telling you what time to go to bed or arresting you for using cash? I think it will get that way before tshtf in preparation for it but then it flies apart. Doesn’t matter, what happens happens.
Ima a 21 year old and i will be working my whole life. I will be a modern corprate slave. All the americans that have died for our freedom must look at what we have become and weep. all illusions in this world.
