Oath Keepers Is Going Operational.

Oath Keepers is instructing its 30,000 members nation-wide to form up special teams and sub-teams in each Oath Keepers chapter, at the town and county level, modeled loosely on the Special Forces “A Team” (Operational Detachment A ) model, and for a similar purpose: to be both a potential operational unit for community security and support during crisis, but also, as mission #1, to serve as training and leadership cadre, to assist in organizing neighborhood watches, organizing veterans halls to provide community civil defense, forming County Sheriff Posses, strengthening existing CERT, volunteer fire, search-and-rescue, reserve deputy systems, etc., and eventually to assist in forming and training town and county militias (established by official act of town and county elected representatives). We want our chapters to organize themselves as a working model that we can then take to other veterans organizations, such as the VFW, American Legion, Marine Corps League, etc. in each town and help them establish such teams within their already existing veterans halls. And likewise, to serve as a model and training cadre to help churches, neighborhood watches, and any other civic organization organize.
We are basing this on the Special Forces model, which has a twelve man “A team” of specially trained soldiers who are inserted into a community to train and lead that community in resistance to oppressive regimes (hence their motto: “De Oppresso Liber). SF’s primary mission is to teach, organize, and lead, rather than to directly fight. They can fight, of course, but they are most dangerous as a force-multiplier by helping an entire community to fight. We will do the same – be force multipliers to help prepare communities so they can preserve civilization by providing their own security, disaster relief, infrastructure preservation, emergency communications, strategic food reserve, and medical care.
In an SF team, there are:
Two communications experts;
Two Medics;
Two Combat Engineers, (who can do more than demolitions. They can also build bridges, dig wells, install water-treatment, irrigation systems, etc. );
Two weapons experts;
An Operations NCO;
An Assistant Operations NCO, who also does intelligence. A commanding officer, and his assistant commanding officer.
Each SF soldier is first trained to be light infantry. They all go through Army Basic Training, Advanced Individual Training (AIT)(usually at the Infantry School at Ft. Benning), Airborne School, and then the SF Selection course, where they learn land navigation (including a difficult timed night land-nav course), wilderness survival (including a graded field “survival” exercise), and patrolling (including reconnaissance, ambushes, raids, reacting to ambush, movement to contact, etc), along with a timed ruck march, obstacle course, rappelling out of helicopters, and hand-to-hand. And then they learn their specialty of one of the above – medic, commo, engineer, weapons, etc. Then they put it all together in a field training final phase where they are dropped into the fictitious country of “Pineland” (in the mountains and forests of North Carolina) and have to teach and lead the indigenous people (played by other recruits waiting to enter the training) in irregular warfare against the enemy.
Then, once they graduate and make it to Group, they all cross train, each specialized team of two training the others so they are all pretty good at all tasks, but experts within their chosen specialty. They bring each-other up to a high standard of capability. And by having two of each specialty, they have redundancy (two is one, and one is none) and the ability to split into two teams of six if needed. They can function as a very capable fighting squad if they need to, but their primary mission is to train and lead others in irregular warfare.
Oath Keepers is using that successful model and adapting it to our mission, to form Oath Keepers “Civilization Preservation Teams”
(we have already received critical input from some of our Special Forces members, and are actively seeking more input from others within the Special Forces community)

The following is a preliminary draft of what we intend to do, to be further modified and improved with our members’ continued input. This is not written in stone – it is just a start. All who read this, please help us make it better by leaving in the comments your suggestions for improvement. What are we missing? What needs to be changed? How can we make it better?
So far,we plan to have the following in each Operational “Field” Team:
Two Communication Experts
Two medical experts
(with a special focus on grid-down emergency medical and wilderness medicine)
Two Engineers
To assist with fuel, shelter, emergency power, clean water, sewage, etc. build bridges, clear roads, construction, facilitate field distribution of supply and logistics, etc.
Two Strategic Food Reserve (SFR)
Specialists (who focus on the critical need for food reserves for the whole team, dependents, and especially for the community and who distribute food aid in the field).
Four to Six “Scouts.”
All Scouts will train extensively in tracking, land navigation, search and rescue, reconnaissance and observation, precision rifle shooting, wilderness survival and other “bush skills,” camouflage, small unit tactics, and patrolling (and then will serve as a teaching cadre to cross-train all other team members in the basics of all of those skills). But within each Scout sub-team will be, ideally:
a. Two tracking experts;
b. two precision shooting experts;
c. Two close combat and small unit tactics experts.
Those are the operational specialties and sub-teams within each field team at this time. Each specialty will train in-depth and become true experts in those sub-category skills.
As of now, our intent is for each field team of 12-14 people to elect their team leader and assistant team leader themselves, from within their own team.
But let us know if you think it should be done a different way, and if you think that once a team leader and ATL are elected, that their slots need to be filled with other people joining the team. Can they lead and still do their specialty, or is it important enough that they concentrate on leading (including intelligence functions and liaison with military, police, local government, state, other groups, etc.) that they should not be expected to perform field duties within their specialty, but instead an additional person should be added to the team to fill those slots? Let us know what you think.
Within each chapter will also be a Support Team (Logistic Supply/Support Group (LSG).
This will be an auxiliary to assist the Field team with supplies and transport. The people within that support team will also train extensively with the field team. Picture older veterans with extensive knowledge, but who no longer feel fit enough to go out into the field. They can serve as trainers, and then as support for operations, and as part of a field HQ to give direction and advice over the radio to the field units. They can also drive vehicles, prepare shelter and rear -recovery area for the teams, etc. For example, imagine an old Marine Scout Sniper vet with bad knees, or an old Special Forces vet with a bad back. Neither of them will likely be interested in humping a ruck up and down mountains, but they can sure train the hell out of the younger guys. Ditto for retired medics and communications/radio men. Their knowledge is priceless, and can and will save lives and could save our country, if properly applied and then amplified and spread. They can train the Field Teams, and make sure they really know what they are doing, with no bull allowed, and then they can be there as part of the Support Team, and as part of the HQ element that is likely going to be with the Support Team.
Within that support team, will be critical supply and logistics personnel, such as strategic food reserve, who get the food ready to go and help deliver it to the field SFR personnel, and same for back-up and support for the other Field Team specialists. And also within that team will be general supply and logistics, motorpool, and base station and portable HQ communications experts, an intel team, and a base station medical team which may even be able to set up a mobile field hospital (presuming the expertise is available, and the supplies). Along side the support team will be a chapter headquarters unit, consisting of the local chapter leader and assistant chapter leader. We will flesh this out with more formal structure shortly.
So far, that is it for the field team(s) an the support team. What are we missing? Anything need to be added, or changed?
Within each chapter should also be the following sub-teams for use both during “normal” times and also during emergencies:
Peace Officer Liaison and Sheriff /posse Team:
Focused on making sure the local Sheriff is a “constitutional Sheriff” who understands the Constitution and the duty to defend it, and making sure there is a posse to back the sheriff up, but also reaching out to city police and deputies. This team would preferably be led by a retired peace officer, who will get to know all local police.

 That team will also serve as the HQ liaison between the chapter HQ and local, state, and federal law enforcement (with a focus on the locals).

Military and National Guard Liaison.
To communicate with and build relationships with local military and national guard units, and serve as liaisons during operations.
Neighborhood Watch Team.
To help form neighborhood watches throughout the local community and liaison with them.
Local Government Team.
To get to know the local town council, county government, judges, county attorney, etc, and observe each town and county government meeting. This is the team that will draft and introduce militia bills, posse bills, and nullification bills, among other items to support liberty at the local level, and will help liaison with them all during emergencies.
Intelligence Team.
To gather, analyze, and disseminate intelligence on who is doing what, where, when, and why.
Chapters can form additional teams as needed in their own area and circumstances, but those are the basics.
Like SF, all Oath Keepers will be expected to learn light infantry skills.
They will all be encouraged to attend an Appleseed Rifle Program and shoot to “Rifleman” standards. Just as the Marines say that every Marine is a Rifleman (even the cooks) so will every Oath Keeper be a rifleman. After learning solid rifle marksmanship, they will learn individual movement and tactics, then buddy team, fire-team, and squad movement and tactics (shoot, move, communicate). All of you infantry veterans need to step up and teach these skills to everyone else. So, it is not just the Scouts who will learn those skills – everyone on a field team will learn them, and even the support team members should at least train in the basics so they can defend themselves.
All will learn land navigation, basic wilderness survival, basic first aid and combat lifesaver skills, and basic patrolling and small unit tactics.
As in SF, each will pick one (or two, if they have the time) specialty sub-categories to train in-depth in, and then each will cross train in other specialties. Ideally, all would at least be exposed to training in tracking and precision shooting. With other team members training to a high state of capability, and available to cross-train other members, the only real limitation is time to train.
Each has a focus, but is encouraged to cross-train extensively.
Within a chapter, when you get enough people to form more field teams, you do it. Replicate and multiply them like cells dividing and multiplying.
All who are interested in each specialty will train together for two months, and then form the field teams and train as a whole team. For example, if ya chapter had four or five people interested in the medical specialty, they would all train together, to set training goals, standards, gear selection, SOPs, etc (with bonafide medics, corpsmen, and EMTs taking the lead, but anyone would be welcome to train for the team who commits to that track). They train together for two months before you set up any Field Teams, but even after they are sent into field teams, those medical track personnel still get together for ongoing training among themselves. Within each two man sub-team, the one with the most knowledge is the lead between the two. For example, a prior service medic or corpsman would be paired up with a newbie who would serve as his apprentice while the newbie gets trained up. All would be encouraged to seek formal training, such as local college EMT classes, Wilderness Medicine classes, and tactical medicine classes (which are rare, but do exist for civilians). But no one would be turned away just because they are new to the field. All who are committed to that specialty track will be welcome, but expected to train their butts off, and they will be under the direct supervision of those with more training (by the way, this is how volunteer fire departments do it. The older and wiser guys train the newbs).
And the same for all the other specialties. What will be of utmost importance is that those with real-deal experience and professional training in any of the above need to step up and help train up these specialties and sub-teams within their local chapter and community. Duplicate yourself, replicate yourself! Teach others what you know, and help them form up into working teams. Even if you are too old, injured, or whatever to go out into a field situation humping a ruck, you can still teach, and help them get squared away.
And remember, the primary mission is to build up a competent training cadre, as force multipliers, with a working model, to then get the local veterans groups to form up similar teams within their local veteran hall, and then to go out and help the community form similar teams in neighborhood watches, mutual aid associations, within churches, and then within the broader town and county. Therefore, all the medics, even the older guys who are not able to go into some field conditions, will be on the teaching team when they go out to teach others during “normal” times. Ditto for all the other specialties.
And so, you should not just be forming these teams within your local Oath Keepers chapter and helping local veterans halls do the same, but also within your own family and circle of friends, and within your own neighborhood (who’s on your buddy team, who’s on your fire team, who’s on your squad?). Start a neighborhood watch and then build a solid field team and a support team within your own neighborhood.
When the crap hits the fan, you need well-trained people around you, with complementary skills, who can help you get through. Like Kevin Reeve of Onpoint Tactical says: “training trumps gear. And community trumps both training and gear.” You can’t know it all, or do it all, and you have to sleep sometime. So build a team, build community, and preserve civilization.
It starts with you, your family, your small circle of most trusted friends, then your neighborhood, your church, your veterans halls in your town, the Sheriff’s posse, the local search and rescue, volunteer fire, etc., and then out to your county and state.
In addition to this being part of our mission anyway, we feel like we are flat running out of time and we need to get as prepared as possible as fast as possible. The Oath Keepers national Board of Directors war-gamed what we think is the most likely move by our enemies to scrap the Constitution. On the BOD at the time were a Special Forces Major, an Army Ranger, and a Marine Scout-sniper veteran, as well as a retired Navy Commander and several Vietnam combat vets, and several other combat arms veterans. Playing devil’s advocate, and putting themselves in the enemy’s shoes, we estimated that the most effective course for “them” to follow would be to:
1. Intentionally trigger a catastrophic economic collapse as an economic “neutron bomb”
(Kills the people, but leaves the land intact). With the current intentional lack of a Strategic Grain Reserve, our population is in a strategic “checkmate” position where an economic collapse could be a near-extinction event for our population. During the Cold War, the U.S. government maintained three years worth of grain in a Strategic Grain Reserve for the entire US population because they knew that in the wake of a nuclear exchange with the Soviet Union, it could take three years to recover and grow crops again. Without that reserve, those who survived the exchange would starve to death before they could possibly restart growing enough food. We now have no such Strategic food reserve, which means that any catastrophic interruption in food delivery could kill millions of Americans. Such a disruption could occur because of even a limited nuclear exchange, an EMP strike (either man-made, or natural, as a result of solar activity), or, an economic collapse.
Currently, our economy is in such a weak state that an economic collapse could be intentionally triggered at any time. Because of the lack of a food reserve, and because few Americans store food on their own, such a collapse would lead to mass starvation, just like in the aftermath of a nuclear exchange.
The US government is spending billions of dollars on ammunition, armored vehicles, and weapons for DHS and local police. It is spending nothing on food for the people. They are preparing to control and contain us, and to shoot us, but not preparing to feed us.
Why is that? You know the answer.

2. Let the country descend into chaos.
A national economic collapse would be like a “national Katrina” but lasting far longer, and because it is nation-wide, it would be far more intense. The cities would implode. All the government would have to do is contain them and let them implode. In the midst of that chaos, they could also do a decapitation strike on the leaders of the liberty movement, but other than that, “They” could just sit back and wait a month, two months, or three to be really sure the people are at a maximum level of starvation, weakness, and chaos, and then:
3. Ride in like the cavalry, to “save” us by means of martial law and scrapping our constitution once-and-for all.
They could blame the collapse on the so-called “free market” and on not having enough government power, and they could blame delays in relief on the “extremists” in the patriot movement (i.e. “we would have gotten the food trucks in sooner, but the extremists were ambushing our safety check-points and resisting the necessary relocation to relief camps”).
Their ready to go solution would be a world-wide version of the Fed, and scrapping what’s left of the Constitution. People would be told to “just turn in your guns, and you’ll get food” and “just turn in the extremists, and you’ll get food.”
ADDITIONAL ANALYSIS: To the above, we now add Brandon Smith’s insight that with a war in Syria, the elites can trigger an economic collapse with a war – with Russia and China using economics as a weapon in retaliation. All China would have to do is dump US treasuries and refuse to trade with US dollars. That would begin the final death-spiral of the dollar.
The Chinese would be blamed for the collapse, rather than the banksters. “They” would tell the American people that the evil Chinese are to blame for the death of the dollar, and anyone who resists the “emergency measures” by the US government would be accused of aiding the enemy. They would say “domestic extremists took advantage of the Chinese economic attack on us to push their own racist and extremist anti-government agenda, making the collapse worse by attacking peace-keepers and international relief volunteers, and by attacking and resisting US officials who were trying to restore law and order.”
It is because of the systemic weakness of the American people, and our strategic checkmate position of having no strategic food storage and no effective local security, that we feel the need to take Oath Keepers operational and put our focus on each chapter being a training cadre to get their communities as prepared and organized as possible in whatever time we have left.
We urge you to presume the worst in the short term, and to work in three or four month sprints – assume that a collapse will be triggered this fall/winter and do all you can to get yourselves and your communities ready.
If it doesn’t happen in the next four months, then do another sprint, of three or four more months of preparation. And keep going until it happens – which it will eventually, no matter what anyone does. The dollar is doomed.
We encourage each individual to build a food reserve, to set aside food for their neighbors (10% of their food is for others), and to have basic communications (at least a hand-held dual band radio), basic medical, and water purification, shelter, and weapons and ammo. We will post more details on our recommendations for preparedness in a follow-up post.
Everyone is encouraged to use the above team building model and template to build a team within their family, extended family, and friends, and to then do the same in their neighborhoods, and in their civic organizations. From the individual, to the family, neighborhood, civic org, town, county, and state.
 Bottom up.
OK. Let us know how to improve the above.
For the Republic,
Stewart Rhodes
Founder and President of Oath Keepers

PS - As a reminder and clarification, from the beginning of Oath Keepers we have had two prongs to our mission:

1. Reinforce the oath-keeping of the current serving.
2. Reinforce the oath-keeping of the veterans (and any citizens who want to join us in our efforts).
From the start, we have been about more than just RTI to the current serving, and well over a year ago we launched our Operation Sleeping Giant, to help put more focus on waking up veterans groups and on the critical need for people to implement preparedness, security, economic independence, and local sovereignty, in their local communities as part of our effort to restore the Republic from the ground up.
However, that aspect of our mission has still not gotten the attention it deserves among our members. All too often I see and hear members describing their mission as just “RTI” to the current serving and not fully implementing the other half of our strategy.
So, to bring that second prong of our mission back where it belongs – with equal attention paid to it along with RTI to the current serving – we will be including the Operation Sleeping Giant mission on our main website, rather than having it on some sister-site (which is not getting it done).
And, most importantly, we will be instructing our members, and our local and state chapters, to form up into operational mutual-aid and community-aid teams, just like we are asking the veterans groups to do.
Some of our local chapters are already doing this, but we need to make it a nation-wide effort, and a main part of our mission.
We have been asking VFW halls, Marine Corps League halls, etc. to see themselves as a unit, as a source of stability and aid to their communities, as the pool of manpower that can serve as a civil defense unit for their town and county, as the Sheriff’s Posse, and as a pool of manpower that can serve as the militia for their community (preferably established by formal act of their city or county government). Likewise for churches, neighborhood watches, etc.
If we are going to ask veterans groups, and neighborhood watches, to see themselves as such a unit, then we need to do the same within our own org, and especially within our local chapters at the town and county level. That way, when we talk to veterans groups, we won’t be asking them to do anything that we are not doing ourselves, and we can also work out the bugs and have a working model for what we want them to do.
The ultimate goal is not to have all the veterans join Oath Keepers and have a bunch of Oath Keepers teams doing all the work in each town and county. Instead, the ultimate goal is for us to help them get their already existing veterans orgs organized into well trained (and training), well equipped, and organized teams. And, even broader than that, the goal is to enlist their help in then establishing strong neighborhood watches throughout their community, and then strong town and county level civil-defense units, posse, and ultimately, strong town and county militia, on the way to fully restoring the state militia.
As I said above, think of this as a Special Forces type mission. SF can do direct action, but their primary job, and what makes them a serious force multiplier, is to train and then lead others.
An SF A team is first and foremost a cadre of teachers, who help organize and train others to take care of themselves.
That is how we should see ourselves. Our primary job is not to have Oath Keepers try to be the security force in our towns and counties, but to help the entire community, and key parts of it, get their crap wired tight so they can take care of themselves. That way, we are a force multiplier, much like SF. Trust me, our enemies will not be happy about us doing this! They would much rather we try to form ourselves into some exclusive, members-only “militia” that will only get so big. They don’t want us going into already existing veterans orgs and reactivating those veterans and helping them turn their local VFW into a working unit. Nor do they want us to help folks establish effective neighborhood watches (with teeth) and effective mutual aid associations in churches, Tea Party groups, and at the town and county level. Nor do they want us to help form up a posse to back a good sheriff.
So, let’s do what they don’t want us to do.
And let’s lead by example for the following reasons:
1. So we walk our talk. We can say with a straight face that we are not asking anyone else to do anything we are not doing ourselves.
2. So we have a working model of what we want other groups to do, where we work out the bugs on what works, and what doesn’t, and which they can adopt as an easy, “turn-key” solution, with our recommended structure, SOPs, recommended training priorities, and equipment lists. Of course, they can adapt and modify what we do to their particular needs, but at least we can offer them a good start by our own example.
3. So we have a solid training cadre of specialists in key skills who can then work to replicate themselves both within our org and also within the broader community. And a big part of that replication will be to get other veterans orgs to realize they already have members of their halls who have unique knowledge who can serve as their own version of an operational team as well as a cadre of trainers who then go out and train others in the community.

Oath Keepers is a non-partisan association of current and formerly serving military, reserves, National Guard, veterans, Peace Officers, and Fire Fighters who will fulfill the Oath we swore, with the support of like minded citizens who take an Oath to stand with us, to support and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, so help us God. Our Oath is to the Constitution.
Our motto is "Not on our watch!"

Oath Keepers To Obama Administration; Bring On The Collapse!

Oath Keepers is not some right-wing extremist group. In fact, they pride themselves on being non-partisan. They are formed of veterans, first responders, and civic servants who, like all military and law enforcement officers, take an oath to defend the Constitution “against all enemies foreign and domestic.” They point out that this oath is valid under Article VI of the Constitution, and that this Oath is to the Constitution, not to politicians, or political parties. Under that oath, they will not comply with any unlawful or unconstitutional order.

I'm a member and groups are forming every day. Contact for more info and how to join us.

Dear Future Generations,

About the future and the past. We had a great thing going in America. Our Forefathers laid out a plan like nome other ever before or since.

  Each and every Forefather that signed our Declaration of Independence and Constitution made sacrifices to do so. The first sacrifice was of self and personal gratification. Not one of them looked for great fame for having joined as just one of a group, each satisfied to be a contributor rather than a glory seeker desirous to be the hero of the day. Today's politicians would do well to reexamine those morals. Stand together or die alone has never been more applicable than it was in 2013.

The current generation regrets to inform you that its failure(s) to put country ahead of self was the largest cause of the collapse of this once great country, the sacrifice of your freedoms, and your inevitable slavery to the insanity that prevailed in our country in 2013. Politicians sold their souls for the mere sum of $2 billion dollars. I know that seems like an insignificant amount of money now you are faced with massive inflation and now pay thousands of dollars for a lousy loaf of bread. Would you believe that prior generations not that far back paid 25 cents for that same loaf of bread.

The challenges in 2013 were tremendous to be sure. The demands of a small group of people, and the refusal by 2 of them to even discuss those demands brought the entire country to its knees. Rather than do what was right for the Country and Stand Together, members of the party on the conservative side of the issue engaged in a circular firing squad publicly destroying their credibility while the tyrannical actions of the party in power declared war on the very people that fought to defend our once great country. Anarchy at the top.

It is probably hard for you to believe that this once great country was once viewed as a Heaven on Earth. Many from 3rd world countries sacrificed their lives to come here to live. Your forefathers failed to revere and protect what they had. They cheapened it by giving it away to those that would invade our borders to exploit the wealth of the country. The US only a generation or so was seen as the most lucrative place in the world to make one's fortune. We had great potential for any who chose to work and earn their place in the world.

Several generations destroyed that potential by constantly reducing the requirements for entrance for education and job opportunities. One does not make the group better by lowering standards. Rather maintaining the standards and enabling others to meet the standards prior to entrance raises the results.

Many of your ancestors did not give up easily. Many millions fought a great fight. There were millions that made many trips to the capital seeking to highlight the need to right the country. Many Tea Party groups were formed and had great hopes for success. Each group had a Leader. Unfortunately, those Leaders refused to put Country ahead of their own petty desires for fame and notoriety. Thus those attempts were doomed to failure. Had they coalesced, we might not have a need for this letter.
So many sold their souls for personal gratification. Every politician, from the National to the individual Tea Parties, had to have their pat on the back. Historians will no doubt say that not one of our original Forefathers put their own selfish ego ahead of saving this country.

We got lazy. We were fat, dumb, and happy in that there had been no serious challenges to all the spoils of being a hugely successful country. We forgot to DEMAND CORE VALUES in those we put in political office. We lost sight of what was good for the country and went instead for personal issues. Compromising college entrance requirements. Compromising education requirements for sports paricipants. Compromising Core Values in removing Patriotism from schools, saluting the flag, saying a morning prayer. And so we followed the failed course of many nations before us. Take the Roman Empire for example. The easy course is most often the one guaranteed to fail.

Our apologies go to you for making you the X generation. The generation that must sign there signatures with an X because teachers were too lazy to teach you how to write in script. Now everybody is exactly the same. Truly dumbed down and reduced to an X, in the really brilliant recognition that everyone has a computer and so not longer needs to be able to write their name. It is only amazing that mathematics is still taught as calculators are abundant. Or am I wrong, did they stop teaching math, too. I digress.

In closing, we Sincerely hope that you will have the foresight and stamina to recoup from the sins of the prior generation to correct the course and prevail where we have failed you. You have the tools. Please have the wisdom to throw out the failures, restore conservatism, and push ahead to retake the country. It will be difficult. It has always been difficult to stand for what is right. The challenges we have left you are significant. Have the wisdom to know that Core Values of Integrity, Honesty, Faith, and Selflessness do result in success.

Always look to the Constitution and the Declaration for guidance. All of our Forefathers had it right the first time.

The generation of Entitlement

Posted by Marlene H. Klim

Sad, but all too true letter.

The ones that will really pay, DEARLY, for the failures of the selfish, entitled generation (our own children), will be their children, our grand children.

It is truly sad to watch a liberal, who, even after watching the desgtruction brought on by Barack Heusein Obama and his minions, still find liberalism acceptable.

 as Churchill said, " may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a small chance of survival. There may even be a worse case: you may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves."

It's better to die on your feet than to live on your knees. Semper Fi!

How Obama Plans to Finally Destroy America

Since taking office, Obama has seemed to have one goal in mind, bankrupting America. Rather than working to create jobs for 24 million Americans, Obama has put in place policies which kill jobs. His use of foreign companies to receive American taxpayer money is legendary and leads many people to question why these contracts are not going to American companies.

Let’s look at Obamacare. Never before in the history of America, has congress passed or a president sign into law, a bill that kills such a tremendous amount of jobs. Or turned so many full-time jobs into part-time ones. Implementing this plan are a Canadian company, CGI Inc, who received a contract worth nearly 100 million dollars. The software is full of “glitches” and experts say it is poorly written. But CGI has become a favorite of the Obama administration, having received a total of 1.4 billion in contracts from it.

The administration of Obamacare and it’s 1.25 billion dollar contract was awarded to another Obama favorite, SERCO. SERCO was caught falsifying reports to the British government program , the NIH (British equivalent of Obamacare) no less than 252 times. And currently, they are under investigation for falsely billing the law enforcement agencies as much as 80 million dollars, for supposedly monitoring people who are in prison, have left the country, no longer on monitoring, or just plain dead.

Even what he claims as huge successes are really abject failures. According to the government, taxpayers took a 10 billion dollar bath on GM. But only if you use creative bookkeeping. The real cost is over 50 billion to save a company with a market cap of 28 billion dollars. And to add insult to injury, GM used US taxpayer money to pay back Canadian loans. GM also moved 12 parts plants to China and built a 534 million dollar plant in Mexico to supply engines for cars built-in the United States.

Then we have the enormous increase in spending by Obama. The budget was increased by 37% and we blew 840 billion on a stimulus bill that was designed to fail. Cash for clunkers, mortgage programs, green energy, were all set up for failure and rife for graft and corruption.

And now, Obama has the chance he’s been looking for, default. Now it is true that default does not have to mean disaster, but by the same token, shutting down the government didn’t mean we had to close all the national parks or shutter private businesses or even close a large part of the Atlantic Ocean. But we did. It was Obama’s choice to make it painful as possible for as many as possible.
If the debt limit isn’t raised, we still have money coming in and we could keep our debts paid until we eventually reach an agreement. Any one of three entities can neutralize the effects of a default, the president, the Secretary of the Treasury or the Fed. All three are under Obama’s complete control. Adding Yellin to the Fed was the final piece of the puzzle. Bernanke would have tried to stave off default, but Yellin will do the president’s bidding.

All tax revenue that comes in must be spent on bills but Obama gets to decide which bills get paid. And bills are not always debt. Bills can also be promised money set aside in the budget. Planned Parenthood and NPR will not see a dime less than they expect. But actual creditors may be out of luck. (Remember the GM creditors) banks who loan money to the government could be hit hard and their depositors could see their money either disappear or become as worthless as confederate money once was.

This is why he refuses to negotiate. And when they got close to an agreement this weekend, he moved the crossbar and demanded that sequester money be added back in, which he knows the republicans can’t do. Congress could overrule the president by passing legislation by a veto proof majority.

 Do you really see Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi riding to the rescue?

And once people are destitute and crying out for the government to help them, martial law could be declared. Elections suspended and enemies detained. Sound silly? Impossible?

  Then consider this, how many things have you witnessed over the last five years you would have laughed about just six short years ago. A president who owes no allegience to the constitution and who is willing to go against its mandates is capable of anything, because he is committed to nothing but the ideology of a Liberal Utopia.

Obama should have been impeached long ago for Treason.

Benghazi. Extortion 17. U.N. Firearm Treaty. Cyber spying. Countless Executive Orders moving power from the people to himself. Fast & Furious. Bailout & fiscal irresponsibility. TPP which will annihilate the U.S. Constitution & sovereignty of this nation. Gov't shutdown - There are three branches of the gov't & Obama is controlling all three. Congress voted on budget & passed everything but ACA. Obama still won't negotiate & has overstepped his authority.
Impeach the imposture.

Forget the Government Shutdown — It’s About Shutting YOU Down!.....Bankruptcy as an excuse for martial law and opening FEMA camps......GOD Help Us...

Pray :and get your family ready,Best you can..Pressure your State to Start thinking a 10th Amendment movement.// We must stop feeding the Beast..In DC../ ..Withold All Fed Taxes at State Lvl..To Pay your Military and Police in State..// Get Armed! ..Pray!!

The US government shutdown - a temporary ailment or a symptom of a grave disease? Are the Republicans right in their move to block Obamacare spending? Who gains from the shutdown turmoil? Do the politicians care about their citizens? Our guest comes from the very heart of the banking system: Karen Hudes was World Bank lawyer when she blew the whistle on major corruption cases in the system and was fired as a result.
Sophie Shevardnadze: Our guest today is whistleblower Karen Hudes, former senior counsel at the World Bank. Karen, it’s great to have you on a show today.
Karen Hudes: Thanks for having me. Sophie, I’m glad to be with you.
SS: So, the government shutdown. Is the move on the part of the Republicans justified? Is fighting off Obamacare worth all this mess?
KH: I think there is something more going on behind the scenes. A lot more, actually.
SS: What do you mean?
KH: Well, there is terrible currency problem. We’re on the verge of the currency war. The Federal Reserve is printing dollars like there is no tomorrow, and if they keep going, the rest of the world is not going to accept them. As it is, the BRICS countries – Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa – have decided that they are going to finance the trade among these countries with assets and pay for the difference in gold. And this is the right move for them...
SS: But how is that connected with a shutdown though?
KH: The US Congress has been fighting with the presidency, because the presidency have been in total contempt, and the highest legal officer of the United States government has also been in contempt of Congress in fighting this international corruption that is ruining the dollar as an international reserve currency.
SS: But you know, economists have been predicting the dollar will fall ever since the crisis in 2008. But the Government has managed to keep it afloat.
KH: Well, not for long. If you look at what’s going in the gold and other precious metals markets, silver as well, we’re headed towards something called “permanent gold backwardation”- that means there is a loss in confidence in the fiat currencies that are issued by those private banks. They like to consider themselves as ‘public banks’ but they really are owned by private entities. And these currencies are about to crash because they are valueless, that’s what always happens to paper currencies that aren’t backed by assets.
SS: Like you’ve mentioned - “gold backwardation”, gold is often chanted as perfectly safe investment and alternative to the dollar, even. But how come the price of gold is falling?
KH: Because of market manipulation - but that can only continue for so long because the Central Banks are running out of gold and the rest of the world are lining up to buy them. If you want to buy gold today, you have to pay a premium. What they are offering in the future is called ‘a naked short’. They don’t have the gold to back those offers, that’s illegal what they are doing. (IN OTHER WORDS PAPER GOLD IS NOT GOLD, PAPER GOLD IS MANIPULATED)
SS: I will get back to gold in a bit. But for now I would like to focus on Obamacare. In your opinion, is Obamacare really that crucial for the US economy?
KH: What you have is something that’s very good for the medical insurers because most of the other countries that offer medical coverage do this through a single issuer. And that’s not what we have here. What we have here is a bill that was drafted by the medical insurance companies. It’s not good for this economy. It never was.
SS: Why do you say it’s not good?
KH: Because what’s happening is that workers that worked full-time are being put deliberately on part-time basis, so that the companies can avoid giving the medical insurance coverage under the provisions of the law.
SS: You know this Obamacare thing.. I’ve heard it many times being compared to Socialism, Communism sometimes even. Do you trace the resemblance?
KH: That’s just because the mainstream media, when they report about what’s going on, are doing it by telling lies and anything that’s good for the powers that be. The mainstream media is completely owned and controlled by the same companies, private companies that own the Federal Reserve System. Most of the American citizens are clueless about the corruption that’s rifling their economy. (TRANSLATION: ABC< NBC>CBS> LIE TO U)
SS: But just to make sure - are you saying that everything about Obamacare is bad? Or are there good things about it?
KH: No, of course, there are good things about it. But the problem is that the people that wanted to get up decent coverage were not given the tools, they were not given the equipment, they were not given the press coverage – the honest press coverage, that society needs to enact just legislation. The Congress people are all bribed by these corrupt forces and the American citizens have zero confidence in their Congress.
SS: So, at this point you side with the Republicans for blocking the medicare.
KH: I’m not siding with Democrats or Republicans, because both of those parties have been co-opted by these terrible corrupt forces I’m talking about.
SS: What we have right now is Americans being forced to get health insurance. How does it go with their love of liberties and freedom of choice?
KH: It’s not so much a question of being forced; you have to look at those parts of the society that have been thrown under the bus. The uneducated children, who are not given superior education, like we used to have. We are society that is giving short shrift to the people that need us. I’m not saying that we ignore the health needs of our country. I’m saying that we ignore the mainstream media, because they are not telling us the truth.
SS: You know, I’ve also heard Obama supporters argue that the American Capitalism is on the verge of death in its present form, the way it is existing now, and the social injections, meaning the medical care and Obamacare, are needed as the only way to reform it or save it. Do you agree or disagree with that?
KH: The problem is not with the American citizens, they are a wonderful group, their values are good. It’s just that they are not given the tools that they need to have a just society. They are not given the basic information about what is really going on and who is benefiting from the economies that they are being told… they are being told that they have no money, they have taken an entire city, Detroit, and declared it bankrupt. When what’s actually happening is their tax dollars are not even staying in the society, their tax dollars are going by treaty to the United Kingdom, and then they are being transferred to the Vatican, to the bank of the Vatican. This is not a society that is going to be sustainable on any basis, for any reason.
(and why is our money going to the VATICAN…because the VATICAN has some weird sovereignty and they have a bank in that damn big house, and the Elitists… BUSHS, CLINTONS, CHENEY, OBAMA…etc have stashed billions in there for themselves!)
SS: Do you feel like American economy is picking up because we hear President Obama saying the shutdown hurts American economy but at the very sensitive moment, word is it has just started to catch up. Do you feel like it’s catching up really?
KH: Those numbers about the employment are completely fabricated because they are not counting those people who have given up ever finding a job as unemployed. That’s ridiculous! The real rate is just about double what they reported as being.
SS: So the American debt looks like a doomed patient. Is there any other possibility for it than just grow into eternity forever? I mean raising debt ceiling once or twice a year, what’s the problem?
KH: The problem is actually when you talk about debt, is that our currency is financed by debt; our currency is issued by the Federal Reserve instead of the Treasury which is unconstitutional. When the Federal Reserve System was instituted in 1913 most of the Congress was on break, they sneaked that legislation through. So the debt is there simply for those bankers to put in interest on it and have it grow and compound every year. The debt is a fabrication, it’s probably should be repudiated. But it can be repudiated until you’ll have looked that all of the implications. (no what they did was threaten Senator Lindberg (father of the aviator) and they took his grandchild because he was head of the finance committee
And he wouldn’t let the FEDERAL RESERVE TAKE OVER… and the next year he lost the election and the DEMON-RATS then let the FED come to be!)
SS: Do you think it’s going to go on and on forever?
KH: No, what I think it’s going to happen is that at the upcoming Bretton Woods meeting on October 9th the countries of the world, the foreign ministers of the world are going to sit down and have a rational basis for currency rather than this fiat currency which is absolutely... what can I say, it makes no sense to anyone but the bankers that are issuing it.
SS: So, when you look at the concept of the debt, it’s much more than just borrowing money - it makes you controllable. For example, in the case of US - who controls it, you mean the big corporations, or countries like China and Japan, who control large chunks of the debt?
KH: Well, that’s a very good question and, fortunately, some mathematicians at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology have given us a very precise answer. They did a study of who owns and controls the companies on the capital markets - 43 000 companies. They found out that there is «a secret super-entity», they call it, that owns 60% of the earnings every year and 40% of the assets. They did this by putting the same people on the boards of these companies. So, they have ten times the economic power than there are entitled to. And they thought that none would catch them at it. This is a huge conglomerate that has been rigging the labor prices, it has been rigging all of the commodity’s prices, and it has been trading in the securities markets with the insider information. It has got to be stopped. It also bought up the media and has been lying to people deliberately. This is going to stop.
SS: So just to answer my question - the government is controlled by the conglomerate or the corporations rather than countries that are up and coming economically, right? Why haven’t these corporations or conglomerate, as you call it, been caught? Why is nothing changing?
KH: That’s the whole point about it. They’d like to think they are in control but they are not, they are not above the law. And we, citizens, know exactly what they are up to, we’ve been working on this problem, all of the governors of the States have been working on this terrible corruption, so have the Attorneys-General, so have the Sheriffs, and it’s not going to continue. The American people are taking back their government and they are stopping this terrible corruption.
SS: As of today, the United States is a financial heart of the world. Whether it collapses or keeps on going, it’s obviously wrong – this much power is concentrated in one place. Asia is a rising monster right now; could it be stealing this financial role from the US? Do you think China, for example, could steal its financial role from the US? Or are they also controlled by that same financial elite you’re mentioning?
KH: Well, I can tell you that the Jesuits have a very strong stranglehold on China as well but I can also tell you that the transition of economic strengths from the western countries to the east is going to happen, but it’s going to happen in a smooth way. It’s not going to be a transition through a currency war like that terrible corrupt group is trying to manipulate everyone into. No, we’re going to have a peaceful power transition this time around; we’re not going to have the World War III. They try to pull it off in Syria, they are now thinking they can pull it off in Iran, it’s not happening. The citizens of the world see what they are doing and we’re not letting them get away with it this time.
SS: Foreign governments keep buying US Treasury bonds despite obvious problems US economy is facing. What’s making them do that, in your opinion?
KH: I think the biggest market for the Federal Reserve notes is the US Treasury and there is a gut of dollars right now. But, yes, there is also a small market, unfortunately, the market is weakening as the dollar weakens because of all of this, what they call quantitative easing, where every month so many additional dollars are printed with absolutely no backing.
SS: Should we be buying gold?
KH: Well, yes and no, I think gold is probably a wise purchase right now, but more as insurance than investment, because there is actually a great deal of gold, there is even more gold than people know about. For example, the amount of gold in the deposit in the Bank of Hawaii is 170 000 tonnes, this is more than the World Gold Council says is available for all the gold on the Earth. People don’t know how much gold there is, there is a lot of gold.
SS: Are you buying gold?
KH: I did actually, yes. But not because it’s an investment, but because I’m not 100% certain that we’re going to get to act together before all of the paper fiat currency falls apart. So I see it as insurance, but because of the amount of gold that’s actually around in the world in deposit all over the world I’m not so sure it’s a great investment.
SS: So you think the return to the gold standard is a realistic thing? It could be a possibility?
KH: Well, actually, that’s not such a good thing. The currency ought to be backed by value, but there is no reason why it should be restricted to precious metals, it could be any of the commodities that are valuable. The important thing is that, yes, the currency should be backed by assets rather than by debt as we now have.
SS: But if a financial collapse happens, let’s say, will gold be of any use? I mean, there is shortage of food, look at the world today, the biggest problem we’re facing is the clean drinking water. What gold is going to do about that?
KH: First of all, I think that we’re going to manage to get our act together; I’m not expecting a collapse. Very accurate game-theory model is showing that we’re going to manage to make a transition in a very smooth way; maybe there’ll be a few fits and starts, but I think most of the countries in the world are in favor of working together and not to have a collapse. The only thing that you’re saying is that some of these crooks haven’t figured out, they haven’t seen the writing on the wall, they haven’t seen that we understand that there is a way to work together and avoid these problems, which are definitely avoidable.
SS: So, Karen, you were a senior counsel at the World Bank. Tell me something, honest banking is this an oxymoron?
KH: No, we have examples all over the place - in the United States, the state of North Dakota has its own state bank and many of the other states are looking at that - at the moment 22 other states are looking at it, and we’re urging the other 28 states to look at it. There was a bank in Amsterdam that, I think, went on for 300 years with no problem. We know how to do banking, it should be like infrastructure to support the economy, it shouldn’t be for the benefit of elites that think they are above the law as we currently have. If you look at the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) - that institution was established when the war reparations were being exacted from Germany after the World War I. That’s when it was started in 1930 and I believe its 60 central banks, that are members of the BIS - those are the corporates, those are the ones that really needs to go out of business.
SS: You first blew the whistle over corruption in the World Bank. Tell us more about your revelations?
KH: Well, that’s actually what happened: I was working in the Philippines and there was a bank… this was at the end of the East Asia financial crisis in the end of the 1990s. And the second largest bank in the Philippines, the Philippine National Bank, there was a loan to strengthen the banking sector and, what happened, that there was a man who owns Philippine airlines, Lucio Tan, who ended up buying more than 10% of the shares of the Philippine National Bank without informing the security authorities in the Philippines - that was against the law. And then I told the person who was in charge of the World Bank Lending Program that they should tell the government of the Philippines that the conditions of the loan were not going to be met. And instead I was reassigned, and I didn’t accept that, so I went to the meeting, where it was decided whether or not to disburse the loan and I said that the board was not being informed that the conditions were not met. And then what happened was the loan wasn’t disbursed, but the people who had their money on deposit in that bank withdrew their money and the Philippine Deposit Insurance Corp. had to withdraw, had to back up the bank, for five hundred million dollars, and then we didn’t disburse our loan for two hundred million and the Japanese didn’t disburse their loan for two hundred million. So, that was nine hundred million dollars worth of a poor loan performance and when the evaluation department in the World Bank said that the World Bank had performed satisfactorily, I corrected that report and my correction was never given to the board. That was a cover up. You can’t have a cover up in a bank - that shows that money is going the wrong way. I’ve been working together with other whistleblowers at the World Bank, because we know that the board has to be informed about what’s actually going on. Other whistleblowers have reported double accounting, we reported this to the UK Parliament, I reported it to the European Parliament in 2011 and the European Parliament wrote the letter to the World Bank. I had a very detailed chronology - and the World Bank never responded. Then I’ve been reporting this to the US Congress and when the US Congress was asked to give a capital increase to the World Bank, they had asked for a government accountability office audit which never took place. I was reporting this to the International Organization of Supreme Audit institutions and then I asked the board to require KPMG to do an audit of the World Bank Internal Controls. KPMG did not follow the auditing standards, so I reported this to the public company accounting oversight board, I reported this to the SEC. But since the SEC couldn’t be bothered to sort out the insider trading for the Federal Reserve System, they certainly weren’t going to straighten out the bonds in the World Bank. So I bought a World Bank bond and I sued under the securities laws, and I also went to each and every Attorney-General in the States, and I told the States that they were responsible for making sure that there was accurate financial information going to the bond holders in their States, and I also went to the International Organization of the Securities Commissioners. So, the World Bank has got to be brought into compliance and there has to be transparency in the capital markets, and the insider traiding of the Federal Reserve System is going to be history in short order. (AND SHE THINKS
SS: Do you feel safe after all these leaks, I mean you were fired?
KH: You know I have been working with some very wonderful whistleblowers; in particular, I’d like to mention Mark Novitsky who has been reporting about insider trading and inaccurate financial reporting for Teletech, which is a company that had been spying on American citizens. So, when whistleblowers work together, and compare notes and share information you get a very accurate picture. In addition, I’d like to mention Larry Harrison, who has been my PR guy. So when you have people who you’re working with it’s not so easy to shut the whistleblowers down, we just gain in strength. We‘re going from strength to strength.
SS: Do you feel like you are being heard? Is anything changing?
KH: Well, that’s what I like to ask your audience.
SS: Do you feel like anything changing in the system by whistleblowing on it?
KH: Yes, I absolutely do. I think the number of people they are hearing my message and that are looking into this information, and every day they are sending me e-mails. They are going out and they are getting their neighbors to find out what’s really going on. I don’t think this mainstream media is going to have too big of an audience at the rate we’re going.
SS: There are liberty movements that are actually picking up now, the likes of Bitcoin, for example. Can they ever grow into a solid rival to the conventional system?
KH: I think they’re going to be a force to be reckoned with, yes. It’s a matter of fact. There are other similar kinds of payment systems that are now gaining currency. Yes, I think we’re going to have a world where there’s a lot of choice and the legal tender is not going to be used to put people into debt and to imprison them.
SS: Are you using a Bitcoin as of now?
KH: That’s a good question. I’m trying to learn how. There is a conference that is taking place and I’m going to try to get myself sorted out on that.
SS: Karen, thank you very much for your time. That’s all for today. Our guest was a former insider at the World Bank, ex-senior counsel Karen Hudes. Thanks for watching and we will see next time here in SophieCo.
