Quotes of the Week

From the Light:
“Libertarians understand that providers under capitalism – in their lexicon meaning the free market without government intervention - have no choice but to offer the best goods and services at the lowest possible prices. If they don't, someone else will. This is not ‘unbridled’ capitalism. Every shopper, every purchaser, every consumer, everyone who pays for services or products, is the bridle of every provider in the marketplace. Companies don't have armies of enforcers gong from door to door demanding that consumers buy from them or go to jail. If they did they wouldn't be companies, they would be the equivalent of governments, and if they could do that they wouldn't bother selling products or services, they would just take people's money at gunpoint.”
Garry Reed

“When nature becomes our government, humans will evolve at an exponentially greater rate. No longer will resources be wasted on national muscle being exercised to show dominance. No longer will people be waiting on their knees to get their fair share squeezed out of their neighbor. And no human being or group of human beings will maintain a significant power without being challenged by the world. Humans will integrate solely based on their volitional interactions with one another, giving them the freedom to master the art of creating the reality out of their imagination without hindrance from another’s.”
Theo Zagetch

“The retention and expansion of political power is the central task of every ruling class throughout history, no matter what their ostensible ideological orientation. Dictatorships, democracies, and everything in between all share this common trait: it is the organizing principle at the core of the policymaking machine, the brain behind the brawn. The various ideological explanations offered by these elites for their actions are invariably self-serving and ultimately irrelevant rationalizations.”
Justin Raimondo

“For sanity’s sake, we must pretend that the money we’re getting – those of us who are getting it – comes from some amorphous 'somewhere' never to be thought about too much. For if each person who received a government check had to confront the reality, had literally to send burly men armed with truncheons and guns over to his next-door neighbor’s home – better yet, had to personally troop over to his neighbor’s home armed with a truncheon or a gun – and accost those poor people himself, in order to force them to “contribute” – then his moral choice would be made crystal clear.
Instead, we have the vote – and speak in euphemisms, politely.”
Eric Peters

"When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men living in society, they create for themselves, in the course of time, a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it."
Frederic Bastiat

“Veterans apparently cannot understand why such experiences, which they call ‘military service,’ does not make them marketable in the private sector.
Here's a job tip for these veterans: You’re screwed up, dude. You should have gone to trade school or a community college instead of signing up for a mass killing adventure in a Middle East desert. You were fooled. You were lied to by your government. You did not do a damn thing to ‘defend your country.’ All you did was help make more enemies for your country, while making life more dangerous for all of your friends and family via a possible future "blowback" attack. So don't behave like a "greatest generation" veteran and spend the rest of your life wearing one of those stupid ball caps describing what unit you were in when you went on a killing spree when you were 19.”
Thomas DiLorenzo

“The State is everybody’s enemy. Why don’t the [OWS] protesters get this? Because they are victims of propaganda by the State, doled out in public school, that attempts to blame all human suffering on private parties and free enterprise. They do not comprehend that the real enemy is the institution that brainwashes them to think they way they do.”
Lew Rockwell
From the Darkness:
“As a veteran and commander-in-chief of national guard forces, I cannot express enough appreciation for our military service members who have protected and defended American interests in Iraq. Our Iraq war veterans made enormous sacrifices to make our nation and world safer.”
Rick Perry, praising US terrorists

“Others, including myself, have spoken about a new world order, but we are still facing the problem of building such a world order…problems of the environment, of backwardness and poverty, food shortages…all because we do not have a system of global governance.”
Mikhail Gorbachev

“The establishment of a world political Authority should be preceded by a preliminary phase of consultation from which a legitimated institution will emerge that is in a position to be an effective guide and, at the same time, can allow each country to express and pursue its own particular good. The exercise of this Authority at the service of the good...should be made in the interest of all, not only to the advantage of some groups, whether they are formed by private lobbies or national governments.”
From a report at the Vatican’s website supporting global government [More nonsense from the Catholic Cult.]

“Now that military operations in Libya are ending, there will be renewed focus on what practical military options might be considered to protect civilian lives in Syria.”
John McCain, proposing more “humanitarian” killing, this time in Syria

"Obviously, you never like to see anybody come to the kind of end that he [Gaddafi] did, but I think it obviously sends a strong message around the world to dictators that ... people long to be free."
B. Obama [Maybe some day that “message” will reach you, Bankster Boy.]

“Not a single U.S. troop was on the ground [in Libya].. Not a single U.S. troop was killed or injured, and that, I think, is a recipe for success in the future.”
B. Obama, demented, American exceptionalist [So, was it a “success” for the thousands of Libyans you murdered?]

"No country on earth believes government is the problem!"
Slick Willie [Maybe not, but millions of individuals do.]

“On occasion, scientists working on the nuclear program in Iran turn up dead. I think that's a wonderful thing, candidly….I think we should send a very clear message that if you are scientist from Russia or North Korea or from Iran, and you are going to work on a nuclear program to develop a nuclear bomb for Iran, you are not safe."
Rick Santorum, endorsing assassination as a instrument of state policy

“I don’t think we can stop them [Iran] from getting a nuclear weapon without some sort of pre-emptive strike.”
Herman Cain

"The president, he put us in Libya. He is now putting us in Africa. We already were stretched too thin, and he put our special operations forces in Africa."
Michelle Bachmann, not aware that Libya is in Africa

Obama Moves ‘No Child Left Behind’ to Libya

This is “success” in Libya to the murderer, Obama. As long as none of his precious, hired assassin/soldier boys aren’t injured, this child’s gruesome injury is just part of the process- a necessary bump in the road to improve this young piece of livestock’s future.

(Warning, very graphic video.)

Quotes of the Week

From the Light:
“The American military is supposed to be our protection against invasion from foreign aggressors. Instead, it has become nothing more than a plaything of the political classes.”
Garry Reed

“The envious do not believe that members of the productive class are entitled to their property. They should only be allowed to keep a percentage and that percentage is determined subjectively according to the desires of the envious. The democratic State gives the envious a minute amount of power through voting. They use this power to vote for politicians or policies designed to take wealth from the productive class.”

“So it strikes me that instead of sweating blood over the iniquity of foreign States, my fellow-citizens would do a great deal better by themselves to make sure that the American State is not strong enough to carry out the like iniquities here. The stronger the American State is allowed to grow, the higher its record of criminality will grow, according to its opportunities and temptations.”
Albert J. Nock

“The American government is going to die because they screwed up the money. IT’S ALL ABOUT THE MONEY. IT’S THE MONEY,STUPID. And it’s DC’s greed that will be its undoing. Fiat currency…the dollar…is an nonredeemable debt instrument. The dollar-based monetary system is 100% based in debt. Precious metals are money. They are 100% based in value. Redeemability provides stability, which produces predictability. THAT’S how you run an economy.”
Russell Longcore

“Truisms reject moral relativism, and American exceptionalism. They compel an understanding of the laws of nature that animate and regulate all human beings at all times, in all places, and under all circumstances. And truisms equal freedom.”
Andrew P. Napolitano

“You want a real freedom revolution? Then go inside your own head and demand that you free you. Heavens, the influence you can have there! The change you can spark! It’s awesome.”
Claire Wolfe

“Christians who vote are not obeying his admonition to 'Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's' and are instead giving Caesar that which does not belong to Caesar: their attention, time, and respect.”
Kent McManigal

“Civilization is a stream with banks. The stream is sometimes filled with blood from people killing, stealing, shouting and doing the things historians usually record, while on the banks, unnoticed, people build homes, make love, raise children, sing songs, write poetry and even whittle statues. The story of civilization is the story of what happened on the banks. Historians are pessimists because they ignore the banks for the river.”
Will Durant

“All hail humanitarian war. Regime change can be a bitch. Start with sanctions because of 'humanitarian' reasons. If they don't work, arm ragtag mercenaries and implement a 'no-fly zone' through an international body. If the rebels can't hunt down the defunct leader, then just bomb the hell out the country until a bloody carcass vaguely resembling the leader turns up. Then claim that the humanitarian intervention was a wild success. PS: Make sure you destroy enough of the infrastructure to secure a huge IMF bondage loan for reconstruction.”
From The Activist Post, regarding the destruction of Libya
From the Darkness:
“Black market cigarettes are robbing our coffers of a critical revenue source that we need to pay for vital domestic programs like health insurance for children.”
Sen. Frank Lautenberg, the chief Senate sponsor of the Smuggled Tobacco Prevention, or STOP Act, which would require that tobacco products carry a high-tech stamp that allows government investigators to track cigarette packages and determine whether taxes were paid and whether tobacco is being diverted to "illegal" markets.

“I would love to see Barack Obama be Bulworth. I’d love to see what I’ve always wanted to see, somebody run as a one term President and show me that people aren’t stupid. They do care about each other. And when he does the right things and takes on the controversies, he’s going to win the next election.”
Sean Penn

"I've looked at the writings of people like Amb. John Bolton. I've looked at the writings of Dr. Henry Kissinger -- KT McFarland, someone I respect."
Herman Cain, when asked who has shaped his views on foreign policy [God help us.]

"I don't think the war in Iraq was a mistake, because there were a lot of other reasons we needed to go to Iraq, and there have been a lot of benefits that have come out of Iraq."
Herman Cain [“Benefits” for whom? Morticians?]

"We hope he [Moammar Gadhafi] can be captured or killed soon so that you don't have to fear him any longer.”
Queen Hillary, in her weekly shout out for more blood

"It's very clear that private-sector jobs have been doing just fine; it's the public-sector jobs where we've lost huge numbers, and that's what this legislation is all about."
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, explaining his support for higher taxes as part of the teacher/first-responder bill

“Let’s get in on the ground in Libya]. There is a lot of money to be made in the future in Libya. Lot of oil to be produced. Let’s get on the ground and help the Libyan people establish a democracy and a functioning economy based on free market principles.”
Sen. Lindsey Graham, leading the future looting of Libya

“We came, we saw, he died.”
Queen Hillary, making light of Gaddafi’s execution without trial. [Your time will come, War Wench. We will delight in seeing your fat carcass buried at sea.]

"Where is a terrorist more apt to be found? Not these days on an airplane more likely on the interstate.”
Bill Gibbons, Tennessee Department of Safety & Homeland Security Commissioner [If they’re not on airplanes, why are your perverts still molesting and microwaving people? They’re now on the interstates, you say? Based on what evidence?]

"For the region, today's events [the murder of Gaddafi] prove once more that the rule of an iron fist inevitably comes to an end."
B. Obama [Your time will come, as well, Bankster Puppet Boy]

“The demand for out facilities and services could be adversely affected by the relaxation of enforcement efforts. For instance, any changes with respect to drugs o illegal immigration could affect could affect the number of persons arrested, convicted, and sentenced, thereby reducing demand for out correctional facilities to house them.”
From the Corrections Corporation of America annual report

Welcome Back, Adam!

Adam Kokesh has returned to the “interwebs” with his now independently produced, “3.0” version of “Adam vs. the Man.”

Here, Adam shows the world the historically ignorant, economically clueless, collectivist, authoritarian, fascist, walking turd known as Kevin Zeese. Adam does an excellent job of instantly refuting the nonsense offered by this “spokesman:”

Zeese articulates well the general anti-war message concerning US involvement in wars of empire throughout the world, yet sees no hypocrisy in proposing his leftist, authoritarian war against sovereign individuals who happen to reside geographically within the US collective. It’s apparently not enough for Lord Zeese and his supporters to live their own, freely chosen collectivist lifestyle. They insist on the participation of all 310 million of us in their centralized fiascos. If you disagree with their violence-enforced policy- tough luck!

Mr. Zeese, if your proposed acts of aggression against, free living, sovereign, liberty loving, and otherwise peaceful individuals are successful, please don’t act surprised when you find a well aimed hollow point between your eyes. Violence, no matter what form it takes, merely begets more violence. Your inherent threat to cage or kill me and others for not cooperating with your mob-enforced “policy” will more than likely be met with justified, defensive, retaliatory force. Do you and your aspiring tyrants really believe that your opposition will merely sit back and accept your oppression?

Welcome to Bankster-Controlled America, Part II

The Federal Reserve wants Alex Jones to take down his video where he illustrates how the Federal Reserve is a private bank impersonating a Federal agency.

“We have received a privacy claim by agents of the FED,” says Jones on his YouTube channel. “They are threatening to remove the video and take down the channel within 36 hours if we don't bow down to their demands.”

Here are the initial two videos about this most recent development concerning Fed and banker tyranny. The Fed has now moved quickly from monitoring critics in the blogosphere and social media outlets to actively working to censor and restrain people’s speech. Stay tuned for more updates from Alex, later on Monday.

I don’t know if this related to the attack by the FED, but the Alex Jones Channel has received this notice (shown below) from YouTube. One of the channel’s videos has been removed due to “copyright infringement.” The video in question can (at least at this moment) still be viewed here on another channel.

Apparently, the problem arises from the use of a news clip from CTV-Calgary showing their famous “dumb reporter” who is ignorant of the historical record concerning gold being used as a reliable currency.

Welcome to Bankster-Controlled Amerika, Part I

While watching these two videos, please remember that these people are not anti-bankster protestors merely posing as customers. These are actual account-holding customers! At Bank of America, they are not even allowed into the lobby to transact their business. At CitiBank they are actually arrested- for attempting to secure their money!

Please notice who the police (those thuggish, blue bellies who fraudulently claim to “protect and serve”) are “protecting” here. Please notice how they are turning away and even arresting the victims, not the perpetrators!

Quotes of the Week

From the Light:
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
Steve Jobs

“Yes, there is class warfare in America. But the real war isn't left vs. right. It's freedom vs. tyranny, its libertarianism vs. statism in all its ugly forms, socialism and fascism alike.”
Garry Reed

“For all of the 'American Exceptionalism talk I have been hearing, I have concluded that 'American Exceptionalism' means that Americans are exceptional in that they demand less freedom and liberty than people who once lived under communism. We have become 'exceptional' in that sorry regard."
Bill Anderson

"The big problem with the honest Left is their absolute and obstinate refusal to learn the most basic economic principles."
Rod Rojas

“Anarchism comes down to a very simple argument ... all you have to know is it's never acceptable to use violence, or threaten violence against the innocent. When you say that to someone, everyone says 'well, of course!' But then, of course, it turns out they don't actually believe it. They believe in war, they believe in taxation, they believe in regulation. Everything the state does is violent. They claim the right to kill you if you sufficiently resist paying a parking ticket. So that's the opposition, this is mankind's worst enemy on earth ever."
Lew Rockwell

“The idea of a citizen is really a great con. We are given a lofty and noble title with a laundry list of obligations, but very little protection in return. This is the problem with entrusting anything to a coercive monopoly.
It appears that citizenship now is nothing more than a way for people to participate in the grand scheme of organized robbery that is participatory democracy. Every few years, everybody's life, liberty, and property is sold to the highest bidder, and ‘citizens’ vote for as much loot as possible to be transferred in their direction.”
Robert Taylor

“The idea of a strictly limited constitutional State was a noble experiment that failed, even under the most favorable and propitious circumstances. If it failed then, why should a similar experiment fare any better now? No, it is the conservative laissez-fairist, the man who puts all the guns and all the decision-making power into the hands of the central government and then says, ‘Limit yourself’; it is he who is truly the impractical utopian.”
Murray Rothbard

“The world is lurching toward an impasse, a crossroads between the old and the new. Awaiting rejection from the establishment...and mounting challenges to its hegemony. It is an epoch of sorts. A chance for a brand new experiment in freedom and voluntarism...or an opportunity to dive back into the failed model of the state, only to begin the loopback process all over again.”
Joel Bowman

“Governments do not come into existence as social service organizations or as private firms seeking to please consumers in a competitive market. Instead, they are born in conquest and nourished by plunder. They are, in short, well-armed gangs intent on organized crime.”
Robert Higgs

“Yo, Do-Gooders: politicians stick together, OK? It’s us against them. Expecting one government's thugs to arrest those of another is like asking Bonnie to turn in Clyde.”
Becky Akers

“It's hard to believe that any genuine democracy would accept a claim by its leader that he could have anyone killed simply by labeling them an ‘enemy.’ It's hard to believe that any adult with even the slightest knowledge of history or human nature could countenance such unlimited, arbitrary power, knowing the evil it is bound to produce. Yet this is exactly what the great and good in America have done. Like the boyars of old, they not only countenance but celebrate their enslavement to the ruler."
Chris Floyd

“The flags, the fake debates, the false promises, the ‘god bless our nation’ -- it's nothing more than pure deception. It's proven to be so convincing that although its creators don't deserve the title of Human, one could easily say it's a masterpiece worthy of the title of genius. This picture of America -- a magical fairyland with freedom and prosperity for all -- is painted with blood on the dead flesh of freedom.
Do not stand up for it. Do not represent your government, just as they don't represent you. Denounce your association with them. Refuse to participate in a system that wreaks havoc on innocent human life. Refuse to play their game any longer. Refuse to believe their lies and refuse to let anyone else tell you otherwise. We are humans, living beings, individuals with souls who are born free. Refuse to be tied down by authority.”
Josh Vick
From the Darkness:
"I cannot live with a nuclear-armed Iran. If you want an example of when I would use American force, it would be that."
Jon Huntsman, totalitarian fascist

“It’s really important for us not to give any legitimacy to these people in the streets. I remember what happened in the 1960s when the left-wing took to the streets and somehow the media glorified them and it ended up shaping policy. We can’t allow that to happen.”
Congressman Peter King (R-NY) commenting on the “Occupy Wall Street” demonstrations [Those 1960's demonstrations helped end the Vietnam holocaust.  Goodness no, we can't let that happen again.]

"It's critically important that we unite the world in the isolation of and dealing with the Iranians. That's the surest way to be able to get results."
Joe Biden [Only barbarians see conflict as the first method of action.  Civilized folk first try peaceful discussion and persuasion. Even street gangs do this.]

"We will work closely with our international partners to increase Iran's isolation and the pressure on its government and we call upon other nations to join us in condemning this threat to international peace and security."
Queen Hillary, hypocrite and state barbarian

"We are looking for countries to join us in increasing the political and the economic pressure on Iran. We believe that all countries should look hard at how they can tighten sanctions, how they can enforce sanctions and whether sanctions are well-enforced to the limits of their own national law."
State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland, hypocrite and state gangster

“Pakistan has to be part of the solution or they will continue to be part of the problem. And therefore, as frustrating as it is, we just keep every day going at it and I think we make very slow, sometimes barely discernible progress, but we’re moving in the right direction.”
Queen Hillary, blaming Pakistan for the US Empire’s defeat in Afghanistan

“My choice is not to cut defense. I think it’s a terrible idea to cut defense.”
Mitt Romney, showing us where a good chunk of his bribe income is coming from

"If we sit by and wait until the impacts of climate change are so severe that is impacting our supply chain then that puts us at a greater risk. From a business perspective we really need to address this now, and to look five, 10, and 20 years down the road."
Jim Hanna, Starbuck’s sustainability director, warning of a threat to world coffee supply because of “climate change”

“They’ve [Iran] not just crossed the red line, they’ve jumped over the red line, and this to me is an act of war.
This is such — again, this violates all international norms, violates international law. Basically, you’re talking about an act of war. I think we have to — the United States has to really consider taking very significant action.”
Peter King, chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, ready to make war against Iran based on a phony terror plot

"We have got a sick patient -- the American economy. And we can see that the patient in the next bed -- the European economy -- he's looking even sicker and there's a real risk of contagion. And what I think we have to do at a moment like this: Have a very, very open creation of money and credit. This is not a moment for government to be cutting back."
David Frum, former Bush II speechwriter, offering us more self-destructive idiocy

“Return to the gold standard? Give me a break. We’re not in Kansas. This is an integrated world economy. And forget doing away with the Fed, Every country has a central bank. Money cannot manage itself.”
William Nordhaus, the Sterling Professor of Economics at Yale University and resident, apparaently, of Oz

“I hope the president continues to exercise extraordinary constitutional means, based on the history of Congresses that have been in rebellion in the past,. He’s looking administratively for ways to advance the causes of the American people, because this Congress is completely dysfunctional.”
Rep. Jesse Jackson, Jr., claiming that congressional opposition to the American Jobs Act is akin to the Confederate “states in rebellion”

“Under the Law of Unintended Consequences, it appears that your newspaper, the Sun-Sentinel, is not only a contractor but may be considered a lobbyist, as well as its editors and the reporters. Therefore, until this is clarified, I will be needing all reporters and others from the paper who contact me for information to file whatever is required as a lobbyist to the City of Lauderhill before I can communicate further.”
Richard Kaplan, mayor of Lauderhill, Fl, in an email to reporters at the South Florida Sun Sentinel [So now reporters are considered "lobbyists" by some of our rulers.  It will be interesting to see if this precedent is used by other state gangsters.]

Quotes of the Week

From the Light:
Due to a busy work schedule this past week, I was unable to do much reading and therefore am unable to pass on small jewels of wisdom to this blog’s readers…….at least from those enlightened authors I enjoy reading.

However, I did manage to catch some babbling ignorance from the darkness.

From the Darkness:
"But if you watch them [Republican presidential opponents] and watch me, the difference in the depth of knowledge and the difference in the ability to debate Obama, the difference in actually having done it at the national level, I can’t only think if you’re worried about the future of the country and you’re worried about how we get the country fixed, I’m a pretty good mechanic who knows how to fix the car and the other folks are good at selling it.
They’re nice people, but they don’t have the knowledge to do something like this on this scale. This is enormously complicated.”
Newt Gingrich, claiming only he is intelligent enough to run the lives of 300 million people

“It may require our military in Mexico.”
Rick Perry, who would consider sending U.S. troops into Mexico to combat drug-related violence

"End capitalism. That is the problem- capitalism. Capitalism has to go.”
Michael Moore, who has made tens of millions from capitalism

"These officers put their lives on the line every day to keep us safe. We're incredibly proud to help them build this program and let them know how much we value their hard work.”
Jamie Dimon, CEO and chairman of JPMorgan Chase & Co, who donated an unprecedented $4.6 million donation to the New York City Police Foundation at the very moment the NY police were brutalizing Wall Street protestors
[They certainly keep your sorry, criminal ass safe. Your time at the guillotine will come, my friend.]

"President Obama has elected to continue the Bush administration’s post-9/11 policy of authorizing the killing of U.S. citizens abroad if there is strong evidence of their involvement in terrorist activities. There is believed to be an official, secret list of those citizens who can be targeted. The elimination of a man who methodically planned to kill hundreds of his fellow Americans is exhibit A for the wisdom of this policy. To be sure, a great deal of care needs to be taken in identifying those on the list. However, American citizenship shouldn’t protect someone living abroad from suffering the immediate consequences of plotting mass murders on American soil."
Mark Peredes, Deseret News, defending the US Dictator’s new found power to assassinate anyone he deems unworthy

"As we continue our close cooperation with Nigeria through the second year of our Bi-national Commission, we will set forth our priorities, and they include improving governance, fighting corruption, delivering services more effectively to the people.
We want to work with Nigeria and West Africa to improve security and to make sure that we also address the legitimate needs of people before extremists have a chance to exploit them"
Queen Hillary outlining her plan on how she will rule Nigeria

"This is America's moment. We should embrace the challenge, not shrink from it, not crawl into an isolationist shell, not wave the white flag of surrender, nor give in to those who assert America's moment has passed. That is utter nonsense.
This century must be an American century. In an American century, America has the strongest economy and the strongest military in the world. God did not create this country to be a nation of followers. America is not destined to be one of several equally balanced global powers. America must lead the world, or someone else will."
Mitt Romney, looking for more God-inspired wars

“You would think that the president and the people in Washington would recognize the importance of the United States military and the need not to shrink our military budget but strengthen it.”
Mitt Romney, looking for a pay raise for the state’s hired assassins

“I can say very clearly that any kind of U.S. presence (in Iraq) demands that we protect and provide the appropriate immunity for our soldiers.”
Leon Panetta, demanding blanket protection from accountability for his hired assassins

Occupy the Fed-Dallas! - A Photo Essay

About a week ago, talk show host Alex Jones called for “Occupy the Fed” rallies at the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas and its branches in Houston and San Antonio in response to the global insurrection against banker occupation. Jones also wanted to point out the true source of the present economic difficulties; this in response to “Occupy Wall Street, ” whose participants voice their displeasure against the symptom of the problem (banker corruption and unaccountability) rather than the cause.

I visited the rally Friday afternoon, October 7, at the Dallas Federal Reserve building at 2200 North Pearl St., Dallas, TX (All photos by Roger Young).

The Dallas Fed is a huge complex rising out of the north Texas prairie. It takes up an entire city block. Why does it need so much space just to produce counterfeit digital money?:

The numbers are small when I first arrive….

…..Yet the doors to this behemoth complex are closely guarded from the masses:

Fencing was strategically placed to corral and control the state’s restless and disobedient livestock….

…and to aid in closely monitoring their activities:

No surprise here- Ron Paulians appeared to be the dominant force among the participants….

…..though Todd, an anarchist from Denton, TX joined the group…..

….and expertly stated his case toward a stateless society:

The message was conveyed to passing motorists by way of concisely worded signs:

….and passionate, informative speech:

Many passers by showed interest and curiosity:

Some messages were composed on site:

Families were prevalent among the demonstrators:

Even the very young showed their concern about their future….

….and even Johnny Law is approached with the message:

Many lively and thought provoking discussions can be heard among the participants:

Need proof the that the “Federal” Reserve is private?

As late afternoon approaches, the numbers start to swell:

No one states the case against the Fed better than Alex Jones (watch here and here):

As the light starts to disappear and twilight approaches, the message remains on track….

….and the enthusiasm grows.....

…..and the watchers watch closer:

Darkness is imminent, but the protest continues…..

….with sovereign individuals becoming ever more defiant……

…..while looking for that elusive peace:

Quotes of the Week

From the Light:
“The truth is radical. Sticking to the truth is radical. Accepting nothing less than the truth is radical. Reality is radical.”
Kent McManigal

“Killing made easy seems to be the motive of the rulers. Killing with emotionless robots spares the conscience of the murderers. Killing without consequence allows for more killing, and no justice. Killing for the sake of killing then becomes the norm.”
Gary D. Barnett

"A secret ballot makes a secret government; and a secret government is nothing else than a government by conspiracy. And a government by conspiracy is the only government we now have."
Lysander Spooner

“Has anyone seen this social contract that obligates you to surrender a 'hunk' of what you produce under penalty of violence? Sorry, I don’t trust unwritten open-ended so-called 'contracts' into which any advocate of government power may read conditions ex post.”
Sheldon Richman

“Collective cultural egos of the world continue to exist with the direct mental and physical support of the people who compose them. It is from the agreement of these well-intentioned but ignorant men that the prejudices at war in the world derive their power and can continue to function. They who have freed themselves and successfully adopted right mindsets and lifestyles must now take on higher roles as the injectors of new ideas into the collective mind.”
Vahram G. Diehl

"The Natural Law is a powerful Truth that governments cannot tolerate. They have been trying to discredit this particular Truth for at least the majority of the last three millennia, and they continue on today with the vigorous effort of trying to stamp it out once and for all.
Some truths are discovered, only to be subsequently lost. But a lost truth does not disappear, it merely waits to be discovered once again. And to those who attempt to destroy the truth, they are on a mission impossible and cannot succeed no matter how many of them get together to sign the death certificate."

“One’s native land and country are not the government. America is not the United States of America, which is a government. One’s land and country are not the Department of Education, the Internal Revenue Service, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, and the Transportation Security Administration. Emotion felt toward one’s country is different than emotion felt toward the government of one’s country.
Why connect one’s consent or non-consent to government (one’s loving it or not) to staying in the country or leaving it? Why connect consent to location? If one does not consent to a government, why is exit from the country thought to be a necessary implication? Why not simply end one’s relations with that government and remain in the country?”
Michael S. Rozeff

"A fruitful field of disengagement might be called domestic expatriation – the recognition that living in a country makes you a resident, not a subscriber. It is one thing to be loyal to a government that is loyal to you, another thing entirely to continue that loyalty when the Brown Shirts march and the government rejects everything that you believe in. While the phrase has become unbearably pretentious, it is possible to regard oneself as a citizen of the world rather than of the Reich."
Fred Reed

“….The term “slavery” has been abolished, with the modern slave being designated “citizen,” and our children indoctrinated with the concept of “good citizenship.” Today one becomes a slave not by being purchased, but simply by being born in a certain area dominated by a particular master. Since the entire known world is so divided, escape is futile; slavery is universal.”
Paul Hein

“Your children pledge their allegiance to the same flag that will be waving on the day the local Little Tyrant will rob them of their property. Indeed, some of these children will even die in battle defending the flag that has flown over some of the worst injustices the world has ever known, and it flies in every courtroom in this country. This is the depth of the indoctrination. Think about it.”
Chris Dates

“The only tyrant I accept in this world is the still voice within.”
Mahatma Gandhi
From the Darkness:
“The sovereign nation of Pakistan is engaging in hostile acts against the United States and our ally Afghanistan that must cease. They’re killing American soldiers. If they continue to embrace terrorism as a part of their national strategy, we’re going to have to put all options on the table, including defending our troops.”
Sen. Lindsey Graham, looking for more blood

“If you are a patriotic American, you want every American to be covered [with health insurance] the same as you. No, not 'I'm going to get ahead because I have health insurance and they don't.'"
Michael Moore, defending Obamacare and healthcare programs similar to it around the world

“You don’t deserve to keep all of it [your income]. And it’s not a question of deserving because what government is is those things we decide to do together. And there are many things we decide to do together, like to have our national security, like have police and fire. I think you need to pay your fair share to do the things we decided, our national priorities.’
U.S. Rep. Jan Schakowsky, when asked how much of an individual’s income should we be allowed to keep

“If asking a billionaire to pay the same tax rate as a janitor makes me a warrior for the working class, I wear that with a badge of honor. I have no problem with that.”
B. Obama [That’s what happens when the Audacious One speaks without a teleprompter. The working class pay little or NO incomes taxes.]

"When America goes to war, America needs to win. We need to close out the [Afghan] war successfully."
Jon Huntsman [ Successful" means what- when everyone in the country is dead?]

"We all want our troops to come home as soon as possible, but we shouldn’t adhere to an arbitrary timetable on the withdrawal of our troops from Afghanistan. This decision should not be based on politics or economics."
Mitt Romney  [Not based on politics?  How is that possible, considering that war is a political decision and policy.]

“In the end, the Federal Reserve System is a well-designed institution, created by Congress, that keeps the government from relying on the printing press to finance public spending. It is independent, credible, accountable, and transparent. It is a nearly 100-year-old success story that has served the nation well.”
Christopher J. Waller, from the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis Review [Yea, right. On which planet?]

"I teach a journalism class, and I tell my students to fix people's grammar, because you don't want them to sound ignorant. For them to do that, it's code,[for being racist] and I don't like it."
“African-American author” Karen Hunter, complaining about the Associated Press’ transcription of an Obama speech that included “dropped G’s” in some words- the exact way that Obama intentionally said them

“There are powers only governments can exercise, policies only governments can mandate and enforce and results only governments can achieve. To halt the worldwide epidemic of non-communicable diseases, governments at all levels must make healthy solutions the default social option. That is ultimately government’s highest duty.”
NY City mayor Michael Bloomberg

“Therefore, any person who uses or is addicted to marijuana, regardless of whether his or her state has passed legislation authorizing marijuana use for medicinal purposes, is an unlawful user of or addicted to a controlled substance, and is prohibited by Federal law from possessing firearms or ammunition.”
Arthur Herbert, Assistand Director of Enforcement Programs and Services of the BATFE, in a memorandum to all gun dealers in the United States, denying legal marijuana users access to firearms

"The decimation of our middle class, our manufacturing sector, and the American economy as a whole has come in large part because developing nations like China have used illegal currency manipulation and other aggressive, mercantilist tactics to tilt the playing field in their favor.”

Scott Paul, president of the Alliance for American Manufacturing [Expect China to be the scapegoat for a bad economy in the US for some time.]

“They [China] get away with economic murder.”
Lil’ Chuckie Schumer, looking to make war on China

"I think we ought to suspend, perhaps, elections for Congress for two years and just tell them we won't hold it against them, whatever decisions they make, to just let them help this country recover.I really hope that someone can agree with me on that. ... You want people who don't worry about the next election."
North Carolina Gov. Beverly Perdue

“To solve the serious problems facing our country, we need to minimize the harm from legislative inertia by relying more on automatic policies and depoliticized commissions for certain policy decisions. In other words, radical as it sounds, we need to counter the gridlock of our political institutions by making them a bit less democratic.”
Former White House Budget Director Peter Orszag
