The Second Horseman of the Apocalypse

And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see. And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword. Rev. 6:3-4 KJV

Apparently people have short memories. In the decade following the collapse of the Soviet Bloc the possibility of war on the European continent was considered so remote as to be laughable. Then came the horrors of the Bosnian war as cultural and ethnic divisions splashed blood over such pretensions. Quickly however most slipped back into complacency, this time is different they said, it can't happen again, this isn't the Europe of the 90s. They are right, the situation in Europe isn't the same....it's worse. Unemployment in Greece and Spain now rivals that of the Great Depression. In France "youths" (or as Joe Pesci would say: "yutes") riot with impunity and whole swaths of the suburbs around Paris are no-go areas for the Gendarmerie. Fascists march through the streets of Athens with the tacit (and sometimes overt) support of the police. As the ill planned fiasco known as the Eurozone falls into chaos from its own internal contradictions (monetary union without fiscal union doesn't work, never has, never will) it is only a question of when, not if, a spark will set off the powderkeg.

The region with the greatest potential for conflict between nation-states is the Balkans (surprised?...I thought not) The biggest would be the centuries old, yet ever-present tension between Greece and Turkey. As Louis R. Golino, Senior Information Specialist with the Congressional Research Service of the Library of Congress puts it:

For over four decades disputes between Greece and Turkey, particularly over the Aegean Sea and Cyprus, have strained relations between these two NATO allies in the strategically important southeastern Mediterranean. This region is located at the intersection of Europe, Central Asia and the Middle East. In October 1997 NATO Secretary General Solana intervened to reduce tensions between Greece and Turkey. The December 1997 NATO agreement on a new integrated military command structure attempts to normalize differences between Greece and Turkey concerning control of air space over the Aegean Sea. Greece and Turkey are to share air control of this area from bases in Larissa, Greece and Izmir, Turkey. In recent years there have been frequent low-level military confrontations between Greece and Turkey in and over the Aegean Sea. Additional Greek-Turkish differences in the Aegean Sea area concern island sovereignty and oil and gas rights.
The one consolation is that any possible clash would be an absolute disaster for the grossly overmatched Greeks and they know it. There is one area however where national pride and ethnic solidarity would demand a response from Greece and the consequences be damned...Cyprus. The Greek Cypriot government recently asked for a bailout from the EU as its economy crashes and burns. Yet at the same time it is seeking to be allowed into the "club" with the Greek Cypriot Government pursuing European Union (EU) membership, as is Turkey, and Turkey has indicated that EU admission for the Greek Cypriots before Turkey would be grounds for war.

Nor has the conflict in the former Yugoslavia fully played itself out. There are three provinces of Kosovo that have an ethnic Serb majority: Grańćanica, Klokot-Vrbovac and Ranilug. Two of these are in the north bordering on Serbia and are functionally part of Serbia, attempts by NATO and UN forces to assert Kosovar government control in these area has been violently resisted. The situation as it is cannot continue indefinitely.

The situation in Macedonia also is potentially explosive, Mr Golino again:

(Macedonia's) population includes 25% who are ethnic Albanians, many of whom want to unify with Kosovo's Albanians and perhaps with Albania. In addition, Greece and Serbia have both sought to control Macedonia, in part by promoting nationalist groups within it. Greece contests the use of the country name Macedonia as well as its culture, traditions and symbols because it feels that Greece represents the only true Macedonians. While Macedonia's legitimacy as an independent state is questioned by Greece and Serbia, other neighboring states such as Albania and Bulgaria exacerbate regional tensions through disputes over minorities and language issues. If Greece became involved in a conflict over Macedonia (and it is worth highlighting that there is a Greek minority in southern Albania), that could prompt its rival Turkey to be drawn into the conflict
The greatest potential for violence in Europe is not between States in the European south, but within the nations of Europes heartland. Violence by large Muslim minorities,either unable or unwilling to integrate has spread across Europe. Ignored by the multi-culturally obsessed and politically correct elites of both the traditional left and right the common folk are increasingly turning to neo-fascist and racist groups such as the Golden Dawn and English Defense League for protection and to give voice to their frustration. The true depth of the potential for violence is hard to tell as any hints are deliberately covered up by a mainstream media which wants to pretend the problem doesn't exist, a stance which ironically may be making the situation worse.

The grand experiment called the Eurozone is dead, the only question is when, and where, the poisons leaking from its rotting corpse will cause a fresh outbreak of the pestilence of War.

The Plan: Concentration Camp America

"It can't happen here...can it?"

Normalcy bias, and the lingering trust in the benevolence of our Government lead many people to deny that such things as "concentration camps" could happen here in America. However, not only CAN they happen but they are actively being PLANNED FOR.

A leaked document known as FM 3-39.40 or "Internment and Resettlement Operations" details plans for the mass detention of US civilians on US soil:

In the above two images it becomes clear that these camps are intended for use within the United States and are to be used to contain US citizens, as is indicated by the taking of the "prisoner's" Social Security number.

There are detailed plans for the layout of the Camps for both "compliant" and "noncompliant" DCs (Dislocated Civilian)

Notice that even the camp for those considered compliant includes barbed wire fencing both within and without the Camp as well as numerous guard towers.

Further evidence that these are not just "refugee camps" designed to aid those displaced in a disaster can be found in the rules for the use of deadly force.


They don't shoot people for escaping "voluntary" camps...do they?

Another clue as to the real purpose of these camps is the inclusion of a PSYOPS officer among whose duties are:

Identifies malcontents, trained agitators, and political leaders within the facility who may try to organize resistance or create disturbances.
Develops and executes indoctrination programs to reduce or remove antagonistic attitudes.
Identifies political activists.

And finally, if anyone needs any more convincing that these aren't a hypothetical-just-in-case-for-the-far-future. The Army is advertising for jobs in these Camps...right now.

Still not convinced? Download the entire document and see for yourself HERE.

It's official: Obama Judge, Jury, EXECUTIONER

>
King John signs the Magna Carta

With the stroke of a pen Attorney General Eric Holder has not only undone 200 years of Constitutional protections but almost 800 years of English Common Law. In response to Rand Paul's letter asking whether "the President has the power to authorize lethal force, such as a drone strike, against a U.S. citizen on U.S. soil, and without trial," Holder affirmed that he does. Obama now wields more power than the medieval tyrants of old. He is now judge, jury, and executioner holding the power of life and death over every American. Here is the full text of Holder's letter:

Dear Senator Paul,

 

On February 20, 2013, you write to John Brennan requesting additional information concerning the administration's views about whether "the President has the power to authorize lethal force, such as a drone strike, against a U.S. citizen on U.S. soil, and without trial."

 

As members of this Administration have previously indicated, the US government has not carried out drone strikes in the United States and have no intention of doing so. As a policy matter, moreover, we reject the use of military force where well-established law enforcement authorities in this country provide the best means for incapacitating a terrorist threat. We have a long history of using the criminal justice system to incapacitate individuals located in our country who pose a threat to the United States and its interests abroad. Hundreds of individual have been arrested and convicted of terrorism-related offenses in our federal courts.

 

The question you have posed is entirely hypothetical, unlikely to occur and we hope no president will ever have to confront. It is possible, I suppose, to imagine an extraordinary circumstance in which it would be necessary and appropriate under the Constitution and applicable laws of the United States for the President to authorize the military to use lethal force within the territory of the United States. For example, the president could  conceivably have no choice but to authorize the military to use such force if necessary to protect the homeland in the circumstances of a catastrophic attack like the ones suffered on Dec. 7, 1941 and Sept. 11, 2001.

 

Were such an emergency to arise, I would examine the particular facts and circumstances before advising the President on the scope of his authority.

 

Sincerely,

 

Eric Holder,
Attorney General

Obama: No Parental Rights

And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children...-Deuteronomy 6:6-7 KJV

The Obama Administration has turned a little known asylum case into an all-out assault on the rights of parents.

The case of Uwe and Hannelore Romeike has been on the back burner for several years. The Romeikes, who are evangelical Christians, felt that their values were not being reflected in the German school system and decided to homeschool their children, something which is illegal in Germany. As a result he family had several run-ins with authorities ignoring repeated orders to send their children to school.

Homeschooling has been illegal in Germany since Adolf Hitler outlawed it in 1938 insisting that the State be the ultimate authority in shaping young minds and German state constitutions require parents to send their children to public or private schools facing fines or even imprisonment if they don't comply.

In October 2006, police came to the Romeike home and took the children to school. In November 2007 Germany's highest appellate court ruled that in severe cases of non-compliance, social services could even remove children from home. This was the final straw. The family fled Germany and in 2010 were granted religious asylum in the United States by Judge Lawrence Burman in Memphis.

Now comes the mind-blowingly-flabbergasting part (or maybe the depressingly-shoulda-seen-this-coming part); According to Obama's Department of "Justice":

“There are two major portions of constitutional rights of citizens – fundamental liberties and equal protection. There is no fundamental liberty to homeschool. So long as a government bans homeschooling broadly and equally, there is no violation of your rights."

This is a view which gives some acknowledgement to the principle of equal protection but which entirely jettisons the concept of fundamental liberties. The Justice Dept. is also taking the position that the Romeike’s do not meet the definition of a “particular social group” because their faith does not require them to homeschool. The problem with this argument, Farris believes, is that it does not recognize religious liberty as an individual right. One need not be a part of any church or other religious group to be able to make a religious freedom claim. Specifically, one doesn’t have to follow the dictates of a church to claim religious freedom—one should be able to follow the dictates of God Himself. The United States Supreme Court has made it very clear in the past that religious freedom is an individual right. Yet our current government does not seem to understand this. They only think of us as members of groups and factions. It is an extreme form of identity politics that directly threatens any understanding of individual liberty.

Ominously this stance by the DOJ dovetails nicely with the Administration's use of the phrase "Freedom of Worship" to replace Freedom of Religion thus narrowing our religious obligations to only what occurs within Church walls and denying individual conscience outside of it.

European Central Bank Pushes For Control Of 6000 Eurozone Banks

"Give me control of a nation's money and I care not who makes it's laws" — Mayer Amschel Bauer Rothschild

For the love of money is the root of all evil - 1 Timothy 6:10 KJV

They would be given sweeping authority over all 6,000 eurozone banks under a plan being drawn up by the European Commission, putting Brussels on a collision course with Germany and the ECB itself, which have urged a more decentralised first step towards "banking union"

Parents Helping Children a Criminal Act in California?

Sexual molestation of a child is a traumatic act whose devastating consequences can last far after the abuse stops. One of its oft noted effects is gender confusion, where a victim of abuse becomes unsure of how to act and react sexually. Parents who seek to help their children overcome these effects of abuse could now face criminal penalties under a bill passed by the California legislature. It seems that the Totalitarian Statists want to insert themselves into the most intimate of family situations. "You didn't build that." is now "You can't raise that." More at LfeSiteNews

Students in Texas rebel against tracking chips

What amazes me  are the ever-more-flimsy excuses offered for the most intrusive monitoring. The efforts to desensitize us are non-stop Kudos to the students and parents of San Antonio for heeding the words of Jesus "Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves; so be shrewd as serpents and innocent as doves." - Matthew 10:16 KJV
SAN ANTONIO, Texas (NBC) -- Students and parents are rallying against new ID badges that track student movement on the campuses of two San Antonio, Texas schools. Father Steven Hernandez does not agree with the district’s new pilot program called Radio Frequency Identification System, or RFID. The new identification tags are designed to help the district improve safety by locating students at any time, while on campus, at John Jay High School and Anson Jones Middle School. RFID tags are also supposed to help with attendance by counting students more accurately as the enter the building. District spokesman Pasqual Gonzalez says the two campuses have a high rate of truancy and tardiness, and the district could gain $2 million in state funding by improving attendance at the schools.
