The following is a guest contribution from J.R. I will admit, his chosen vocabulary is beyond my everyday comprehension and I needed to look up a few word definitions, but the theory is sound; we will not ever achieve self-sufficiency or survive our chosen way of life as long as there are those who think they need to decide what is best for us, instead of allowing us the freedoms endowed to us by God.
Distant Hoofbeats: Western Refusniks and the End of Fascism
Scarely a day goes by, in which you and I don’t read about some outrage by the leftist police state against the Constitution and our basic human freedoms, as understood going as far back as the Magna Carta. The days seem very black – and indeed, they are very black. Fascism – the term here not used as a slur, but as defined by both Mussolini, as well as Webster’s Dictionary, denoting the merger of the socialist state and large, co-opted organizations – runs rampant uber alles. Profits are privatized for connected cronies, and losses are assigned to the shrinking middle class.
Is there any hope?
In a word, yes… possibly. There just may be some hoofbeats sounding in the distance that will draw nearerer and nearer – if we continue to do our part locally – what duties are right here in front of us, today, here and now. The media gatekeepers, of course, will utter nary a peep about these distant hoofbeats, so don’t look for reports of this in the “lamestream” media. In fact, this very sound portends their demise as well, so perforce they will suppress this gathering maelstrom against them at all costs. Nevertheless, as the servant of the biblical prophet Elijah reported back to him during similarly bleak times in ancient Israel as he battled evil there, there is indeed – if you look closely enough – a cloud in the distance. It is today, as it was then, as small as a man’s hand – but it is growing.
I am not saying you will agree with each of these people I cite below. I am saying that there is a growing discontent and blowback, from people across the spectrum against the controllers – and most tellingly, there are many refusniks (this term is from the Soviet era, regarding people who decided to not go along with the Soviet charade) out of the group of people formerly either siding with the controllers, or who actually were numbered amongst the controllers, and who have now changed sides.
Anyone who can fog a mirror is aware of Eric Snowden (yes, you are correct – perhaps a third of Americans walking the streets may not be able to actually pass that test, but you get my point). And here is the question that has the controllers – just like their Soviet forebears – quaking in their boots: Who is next, and how can they ultimately stop people from defecting?
Let me provide a small sample of those riders in the distance, even if the troop has not emerged out of the blue horizon just yet:
Karen Hudes: Former counsel to the World Bank, Hudes now claims the US government has been co-opted by a global corporatists (and please note, I am drawing a very definite division between fascist corportism and its complete opposite, classic capitalism as envisaged by Adam Smith, Ludwig von Mises and others). See this summary account of Hudes’ “global conspiracy” or even better, go to YouTube and search for “Karen Hudes whistleblower.” Listen to her speak for herself.
Sharyl Attkisson: Ms. Attkisson, was formally an award winning journalist on CBS, aka the “Constantly Barack Show.” Unfortunately, she had the temerity to follow the facts where they led, relative to the Benghazi cover up. After multiple insults to her professional standing – including having her computer hacked, Attkisson left or was pushed out. A few accounts include this one by CBS and this YouTube video, The Ulsterman Report also has a fine summary of the issue. Or do your own research, by simply googling her name. In fact, Bob Woodward, who uncovered Watergate, is also comparing the Benghazi story Atkissson was following to – well… Watergate. Here he is in his own words on the topic.
John Perkins: Perkins wrote Confessions of an Economic Hit Man and is yet another refusnik who once came from the upper echelons of the moneyed controllers, but deserted the ranks. Here he is in just one of his interviews. There is debate surrounding Perkins’ bona fides, so if you wish, throw out his testimony and move on to others here whose credentials are clearly impeccable.
Julian Assange and Bradley Manning: No, I don’t agree with them in many respects either, and there are instances where national security needs to be protected. However, the point is that from across the spectrum, people are opting for greater transparency and democratic control, not control of the hoi polloi by the self – proclaimed elite – and that is a good thing.
William Binney: Binney was a senior NSA manager turned whistleblower, and he – along with Russell Tice below – is one of the most important refusniks outlined in this article. Simply go to YouTube and search for his name – there are many, many interviews with this important man, exposing how the Constitution – the one human document that has arguably brought more human felicity and prosperity than any other document penned in history – has been co-opted and shredded. Binney was the person who actually created a good portion of the NSA infrastructure – and yet he had second thoughts, and is now a committed foe against unconstitutional over-reach.
Russell Tice: Tice is another senior member whistle blower from the NSA, who likes the Constitution over the police state. He notes that the NSA was spying on Colin Powell when he was leading our military, senior leadership in Congress, the Supreme Court, generals and admirals, and many more.
Nomi Prins: Ex-Goldman Sachs managing direct Nomi Prins who also worked for Bear Stearns, Lehman Brothers and Chase Manhattan Bank, has also defected. Prins, who wrote All the Presidents’ Bankers: The Hidden Alliances that Drive American Power speaks with Greg Hunter here. And of all those banker “suicides” of the past few months, how many were actually murders? That is, murders of other people who were having second thoughts
Pippa Malmgren: Dr. Pippa Malmgren, former White House official who was Special Assistant to the President of the United States for Economic Policy and a former member of the U.S. President’s Working Group on Financial Markets, also known as the Plunge Protection Team; formerly headed the Global Asset Management business for Bankers Trust in Asia, out of Hong Kong, and was also Chief Currency Strategist for Bankers Trust Company, and former Head of Global Investment Strategy at UBS. Dr. Malmgren was also a senior consultant to Deutsche Bank, and currently advises the largest sovereign wealth funds, hedge funds, and pension funds in the world. While not defecting to the other side in full, at least in her interview with King World News she certainly appears to have issues with the “powers that be.”
A few other refusniks including singer Tina Turner, Facebook founder Eduardo Saverin, filmmaker Terry Gilliam and songwriter-socialite Denise Rich, all of whom have renounced their U.S. citizenship in the past few years. Personal Liberty.com shows they are just part of a growing cadre that are voting to leave the Orwellian Workers’ Paradise with their feet.
In fact, Americans are leaving the country at record speed and the annual rate of expatriation is growing as over 150,000 Americans departed the former land of liberty for greener pastures overseas in the past year of 2013. There are now over five million Americans who are choosing to live outside the United States.
Daily Reckoning’s new investment director, Paul Mampilly, who formerly managed a $23 billion mutual fund, is also a perfect exemplar who has defected from the side of fascism. Peter Coyne quotes him as saying, “I could be making 5-10 times what I’m making right now. But do you want to know why I left Wall Street? Because back in 2008, nobody was making any money. Except, of course, for the guys on the Street. Outside, people were losing their jobs… their homes… their savings. No one on the inside seemed to have a problem with it. I simply did not think it was fair or right.” Mampilly is clear evidence of English philosopher/theologian Os Guiness’ dictum that while all philosophies might be arguable, not all are livable. And it is this dictum that is the death knell over the controllers fascist state.
One more interesting refusnik for your consideration. Rosa Koire, a Democrat and lesbian from San Francisco, is the founder of www.democratsagainstunagenda21.com . Yes really! Here she is speaking out against one of the primary vehicles by which the controllers wish to gain their hegemony over us poor, unwashed masses, by agency of the horrific neo-communist Agenda 21. When a Democrat lesbian from San Francisco abandons the Orwellian nanny state ship, there is indeed something afoot.
The above is just a mere smattering of a few who have jumped ship. My goal in this article is not to be comprehensive, but rather just provide a small sampling for your reference. There are many roads leading to the abandonment of the Cult of the Brobdignagian State, but what is encouraging, is that these roads are becoming more and more crowded with those exiting… and I believe that, if one observes very closely, you can not only hear hoof beats from distant horses, but if I’m not mistaken, you can actually see the dust rising from their galloping towards you.
The reality is that, while man is imperfect, we have also all been furnished with an internal compass that cannot be violated, unless we wish to erode the very thing that makes us human. As early as Cain and Abel, Cain could not but help hearing the very blood of his brother whom he slew calling out from the ground against him. There are others today hearing that voice. Let’s do what we can to amplify expression.
