Stewart Rhodes Speaks of Daily Bell's Internet Reformation on Infowars
Adding a new wrinkle to the phrase, "I'm mad as hell, and I'm not taking it anymore," several California sheriffs, as well as one from Oregon, say they aren't cow-towing to the federal leviathan anymore. Last month, at the Yreka fairgrounds in northern California, the sheriffs - who, of course, are elected by the people - gathered with a large group to discuss what to do about Big Brother and his consistent meddling in state and local affairs. Speaking of the federal bureaucracy, Plumas County (California) Sheriff Greg Hagwood declared, "A giant has been awakened, and they didn't count on that." – Natural News
Dominant Social Theme: The Feds have the answers and anyone else is racist or a crook.
Free-Market Analysis: Stewart Rhodes appeared recently on the Alex Jones Infowars channel to explain the growing resistance to unconstitutional Fedgov activities. In the process, he pointed out that the modern-day "printing press" – the Internet – is providing people with information they simply hadn't had access to before.
This is a fundamental meme that we have been expressing for nearly a decade now and modern events seem to be bearing it out. We have labeled the ongoing awakening that is taking place the "Internet Reformation."
It is occurring in front of our eyes, as Rhodes realizes and explains. The power elite virtually controlled the flow of information in the 20th century and in the 21st they've lost this ability. They have lost their information monopoly thanks to the Internet. This is a devastating blow.
The elites did not merely control history in the 20th century; they MADE it. What we believe we've discovered is that "directed history" was prevalent in the 20th century. There are simply too many inexplicable occurrences. What were the REAL causes of World War 1? Why did the New York Fed deliberately overprint money during the Roaring 20s? Why did the West accept Stalin's demands at Yalta, thus setting up yet ANOTHER war (the so-called Cold War).
Yes, it seems everything from the Great Depression to the "Great War" was somehow manipulated by the power elite of the era, especially once they were able to set up central banks around the world and had access to the enormous amounts of funds they needed. The idea was to create first chaos and then "order" – a one-world order.
Out of every war came a renewed emphasis on globalism. Out of every recession and depression came expanded powers for the IMF, World Bank and UN. But now in our view this era is coming to an end. Central banks are under attack; the Fed is having a great deal of trouble defending itself; the UN is not the force it once was. Most importantly, the elite's dominant social themes are under attack.
These fear-based promotions are simply not working as planned. Global warming is challenged; central banking itself is seen as ineffective and even part of the economic ruin under which the West currently labors; even the European Union is in increasing danger of splitting up as the euro continues to founder and fail.
Of course, one can argue that the dissolution of these memes will only create MORE chaos, which is what the Anglosphere power elite seeks. But we don't believe this is true. We think the primary plan is always to strengthen globalist institutions. To create chaos out of their downfall is a distinctly SECONDARY preference.
A defeat is a defeat. On so many fronts, in our view, globalism is foundering. The DOHA trade talks have proven unfeasible in many ways; the UN itself only makes news for scandals; there is resistance even to Peak Oil and the "smart-meter" technology it has spawned.
Increasingly, the elites are falling back on intimidation and brute force. And yet in the recent past they have always resisted option as the odds are not good: There are many billions who are NOT elites versus a few who are.
Additionally, many of those who the elites will depend on to enforce their noxious globalist system have begun to become awake themselves. Chief among them is Stewart Rhodes. We interviewed him about his increasingly influential organization, the Oath Keepers. You can see the interview here:
E. Stewart Rhodes is the founder and President of the growing, national non-profit organization Oath Keepers. The group supports members (current and former U.S. military and law enforcement) in efforts to uphold the Constitution of the United States should they be ordered to violate it. The Oath Keepers' motto is "Not On Our Watch!" Both sides of his family have a long tradition of military service. Nearly all of his uncles on both sides of the family served in the Army or Marine Corps during WWII, Korea, and Vietnam, and his father served as a Marine. After the Army, Stewart graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, where his honor thesis focused on the political theory of James Madison. After college he worked on Rep. Ron Paul's (R, TX) DC staff. Stewart graduated from Yale Law School in 2004, where his paper, "Solving the Puzzle of Enemy Combatant Status" won Yale's Judge William E. Miller Prize for best paper on the Bill of Rights.
Stewart Rhodes is helping to spark a revolution in the thinking of US civil police. All over the country, sheriffs and those who enforce local laws are beginning to understand the difference between federal and state law enforcement. Here is an excerpt from an article posted at Natural News (see excerpt at beginning of this article) and also placed beneath the YouTube version of the Rhodes/Infowars interview:
Last month, at the Yreka fairgrounds in northern California, the sheriffs - who, of course, are elected by the people - gathered with a large group to discuss what to do about Big Brother and his consistent meddling in state and local affairs. Speaking of the federal bureaucracy, Plumas County (California) Sheriff Greg Hagwood declared, "A giant has been awakened, and they didn't count on that."
And here's a telling quote: "I had spent a good part of my life enforcing the penal code, but not understanding my oath of office," Sheriff Dean Wilson of Del Norte (Sacramento) County told the group. "I was ignorant and naive, but now I know of the assault against our people by the federal government," he said, receiving some of the loudest and longest applause of the gathering.

Yes, quite so. And the intellectually challenged run amok and riot in its amazing plays, robert. However, as is revealed here often, are virtual changes afoot and providing alternate views with real advanced intelligent potential for they hide not the truth of what they can do.

My god! We've been led into a intellectual malaise.

"Nope. We think it's spinning out-of-control ...
Wait." …. Reply from The Daily Bell
Ok…. I would not wish to dispute that and would even be happy enough to wholeheartedly agree, DB. However there is an unhelpful ambiguity in that welcome reply. Would you care to identify, even in broad brush terms such as, for example, "existing traditional long established money controlling Power Elite systems administrators and/or families and corporations when incorporated and entangled within powering cores", what is spinning out-of-control?
The old wealth system of artificial power or the new virtual ways of doing universal business with Global Operating Devices and Really SMART, Blindingly Fast Machines….. Remote Controlled Units?
And would you agree that spinning-out-control in one jurisdiction/field puts it into the hands and hearts and minds control of A.N.Others, and that would be quite perfectly normal and fully to be expected as Nature abhors a vacuum …… ergo would the situation be spinning into revised and brand spanking new and fundamentally different control ….. and out of such CHAOS comes Order …. Ordo ab Chao …… with Clouds Hosting Advanced Operating Systems with Command and Control of Computers and Communications and Creative CyberSpace.
Please note, just in case you have missed/overlooked it, that that last paragraph is not a question which would allow for the possibility and presence of doubt. Such is as is stated.
What say you to that, dotti?
Now all of that is plainly enough written for it to be easily enough understood. Any difficulty you might be having with it would be as a result of prior programming/brainwashing, which would be causing you to cast doubts on and summarily dismiss without further probing inquiry, new beliefs which would extraordinarily render old beliefs, which may have been decidedly designed to entrap and contain you within a certain limiting sphere of influence in the service of others, null and void and a block on fabulous progress into fantastic fields ... ... Great Games with Global Operating Devices.
Well, be brutally honest with yourself and stop fooling yourself. You surely do not expect the Future, into which you are travelling, to be anything like the Past and the Present, surely. That would be totally ridiculous and a typical perverse adult human naivety which beggars belief, for a child would expect nothing less and be thoroughly disappointed at anything else.

I hope that you are right.

Quite so. ... ... . And here is something exactly the same only different.

Yes, you are all slaves of a Fascist Cleptocracy, but your captors do not have an Exclusive Executive Operating License for SMARTer Intelligence and Future Product, and that is a difficulty to trouble them whenever their own Intellectual Property Supply is Sub-Prime Corrupted and Illogically Perverse, and as you are noticing, more that a tad repressive and intrusive and conflicted.
However, as is always the case, is anything and everything necessary easily bought with a fistful of dollars."
I take it that you do realise there is a global power and control revolution being sublimely waged even as we speak, DB, and the private renegades and pirate rogues are not losing and their anonymous legions are groaning with their spectacular unheralded success ...
Caesar turned in his bed and muttered,
With a struggle for breath the lamp-flame guttered;
Calpurnia heard her husband moan:
'The house is falling,
The beaten men come into their own.'

Nope. We think it's spinning out-of-control ...

Very good. Ingo B and Ron H have good ideas also that need discussion; we need people elected who will concentrate on repealing laws, not writing new ones.

Decade by decade, we see more automation. Decade by decade, we see more job niches destroyed. Decade by decade, we see more push to collectivism. Collectivism would support those who are redundant to the "operation" of society and the economy.
Bureaucrats and administrators can easily see that they are truly superfluous to the producing economy. The civil "servants" are trying to outrun their obsolescence. They push collectivism with honest fervor.
The bureaucrats are really pushing the envelope at justifying their jobs. Brussels decrees that water is NOT a cure for dehydration.

They have also decreed against crooked cucumbers and straight bananas.
The bureaucrats are acutely aware of their obsolescence. They push collectivism even when it is proved that it won't work;

The world is very top-heavy with bureaucrats. They see collectivism as the means to continue their employment. They see law enforcement as the tool to force collectivism.
Law enforcement needs to wise-up.

Here's my question: I have read that the former 'League of Nations' and more recent and current 'United Nations' functions under a marxist-manifesto to transend religion. Why Marxism? It seems that the devil is in the details if you get my drift? International Businesses do not function under the marxist charter, or do they? Just saying...
