Former Navy SEAL (now author and speaker) Matt Bracken was featured a few weeks ago on this blog in his excellent Tet, Take Two: Islam’s 2016 European Offensive. Matt appeared last night on Infowars (Alex Jones Show) which is probably his first high-profile interview he has done. It is not necessary to read Bracken’s essay prior to watching the interview but you will get a lot more insight out of it if you do.
In a very wide-ranging interview, Jones grills Bracken on a range of subjects, primarily around the deliberate Globalist plot to destroy the USA by removing civil liberties and wrecking the economy. As events move closer to the Summer, both predict that the USA will descend into civil disorder, possibly using the Republican Convention (starting July 18th) in Cleveland, Ohio. As many of you are aware, Donald Trump is a nationalist / populist who has openly called…

FBI Instructs High Schools to Inform On “Anti-government” Students – http://bit.ly/1pbc7uS
Alex Jones and his gang can be out there sometimes, but this is some very chilling stuff. More and more we are being watched, listened in on, tracked and told to obey from birth on. Honestly if I was in high school right now. I probably already be labeled anti-goverment, a terrorist a rabble rouser and public enemy number one. I asked questions, I explored, I pushed limits like any teenager does.
Many say that you should “fake it till you make it,” and Senator Ted Cruz is doing jus that. After jumping the gun and announcing that Carly Fiorina will be his Vice President if nominated as the Republican candidate, he has now fully adopted her as part of his ticket- and more importantly, acts like he has the ticket. On his official campaign page, the logo has changed to include Fiorina’s name, and also includes her picture. There is no doubt, from both of these individuals, that they fully believe without an ounce of doubt that they will make it through the summer to combat Hillary Clinton.
Donald Trump has already made history in that he has received more votes in his Republican primary than any other candidate. Already, he has 100,000 more votes that Mitt Romney. If you remember when Romney became the nominee, there was such a feeling…

It’s funny to me that Ted Cruz constantly calls himself a “constitutional conservative”. Is he really? From the looks of things, no. Ted is a fraud and a liar. Ted is cheating this election and that is not constitutional. Ted was also not born in America so that’s not constitutional either.
I think the term “constitutional conservative” is pretty fucking stupid to begin with. To me when people call themselves that, it’s you saying “Hey look at me, I know more about the constitution than you do”. Ted claims he’s got the Constitution memorized by heart and carries it everywhere he goes.
Ted Cruz is losing more and more support ’cause his rallies keep getting smaller and smaller… pic for proof:

WASHINGTON (AP) — They thought it was impossible. Some still fear it. Others can barely believe it. But leading Republicans are beginning to accept the idea that Donald Trump will be their party’s presidential nominee.
In the wake of the businessman’s commanding wins in five Eastern states this week, a growing number of national Republicans and GOP lawmakers on Capitol Hill say Trump has taken on an indisputable air of inevitability. Some argue they should get behind him now and abandon the “Never Trump” efforts still nursed by some establishment Republicans. Embracing Trump, these Republicans say, may be the GOP’s only hope of blocking Democrat Hillary Clinton in November.
“Donald Trump is going to be our nominee,” Florida Gov. Rick Scott wrote on Facebook this week. “The Republican leaders in Washington did not choose him, but the Republican voters across America did choose…

Not to sound offensive or obnoxious, but how did Americans get to the point of being so blind that they think their votes count in any election? Anyone with average intelligence can see that, after every election cycle, the candidates they vote for say one thing during the campaign, then once elected, bow to lobbyists and special interests. Both parties do this every time. The New World Order Gang is not blind to this. They planned it this way since Americans went to elementary school. You have been programmed to think democracy means your vote counts. Nonsense. When you vote for President, you don’t actually vote for that person, but for a state by state electorate scam. In some states, electors are “bound” to vote for the will of the people if the New World Order Gang is ok with that. In other states, some electors are unbound, meaning they…

CARSON CITY, NV. (CBSMiami/CNN) — There’s a prison in Nevada where inmates are getting used to some cute, fuzzy new cellmates.
The cell that George Greene and Terrence Jones share got a little more crowded recently with the arrival of two tiny cellmates, Smokey and Feisty.
Victor Meden shares another cell down the hall with three cellmates and three kittens.
All three men are behind bars because their lives took a seriously wrong turn. Greene and Meden are serving time for robbery, and Jones for theft.
The kittens haven’t had time for mischief, but they’ve arrived at a very vulnerable time in their brief lives.

For the first time, your email may soon get a layer of protection from government scrutiny.
The House of Representatives Wednesday passed the Email Privacy Act, a bill that would force government representatives wanting to have access to older email messages to get a warrant first. Right now, law enforcement and other officials need only issue a subpoena to get access to email that is older than 180 days.
Some 314 of the House’s 435 members co-sponsoring the bill, assuring its passage in the chamber. Its fate in the Senate, however, is uncertain. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, which will have purview over the bill in that chamber, has not said whether his committee will take it up.

“You had to live—did live, from habit that became instinct—in the assumption that every sound you made was overheard, and, except in darkness, every movement scrutinized.”—George Orwell, 1984
In past ages, those who dared to speak out against tyranny—viewed as an act of treason—were blinded, castrated, disfigured, mutilated, rendered mute by having their tongues cut out of their heads, and ultimately crucified.
In the American police state, the price to be paid for speaking truth to power (also increasingly viewed as an act of treason) is surveillance, censorship, jail and ultimately death.
It’s a diabolically ingenious tactic for muzzling, disarming and ultimately eliminating one’s critics or potential adversaries.
However, where many Americans go wrong is in assuming that you have to be doing something illegal or challenging the government’s authority in order to be flagged as a suspicious character, labeled an enemy…

If you haven’t figured out by now, your iPhone really isn’t “your” iPhone.
As the world watched the FBI spar with Apple this winter in an attempt to hack into a San Bernardino shooter’s iPhone, federal officials were quietly waging a different encryption battle in a Los Angeles courtroom.
There, authorities obtained a search warrant compelling the girlfriend of an alleged Armenian gang member to press her finger against an iPhone that had been seized from a Glendale home. The phone contained Apple’s fingerprint identification system for unlocking, and prosecutors wanted access to the data inside it.
It marked a rare time that prosecutors have demanded a person provide a fingerprint to open a computer, but experts expect such cases to become more common as cracking digital security becomes a larger part of law enforcement work.

Jade Helm is back and it is back and it is back with a vengeance. Jade Helm 15 has morphed into Unconventional Warfare Exercise 16 (UWEX 16).
UWEX 16 is about fighting a civil war against rogue American troops who will, presumably, not go along with the imposition of tyranny under the banner of the UN flag with the complicit support of foreign troops.
There is a new twist to Jade Helm 16 (i.e. UWEX 16).
I have learned from reliable sources that Jade Helm 16 is also about controlling the shipment of all food. If one thinks this sounds outrageous, stay tuned, because the circumstantial evidence clearly points in this direction.

Comments made by Bernie Sanders this week may just have blindsided and disillusioned swathes of his support base.
Some of those with higher expectations of the ?peacenik? candidate breathed a collective sigh of disappointment after he endorsed Obama?s extrajudicial drone assassination program.
At the same time, the Democratic candidate backed the recent deployment of 250 U.S. troops to further death and destruction in Syria. During the town hall meeting at Philadelphia?s National Constitution centre, he told MSNBC?s Chris Hayes that the people of the United States have a right to defend themselves. The warmongering endorsement, which could have easily slid under the radar, was slotted into a much wider discussion that included vote-winners like Planned Parenthood, violence against women, marijuana, and gun control.

A Utah businessman is rocking both state and national politics after claiming Utah Attorney General John Swallow helped him broker a deal with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to make a federal investigation into his company quietly disappear, the Salt Lake Tribune reports.

The U.S. Department of Energy may begin studying the effects of geoengineering the climate if a proposed budget bill becomes law.
The U.S. Senate Appropriations Committee recently passed a proposed budget bill which would instruct the Department of Energy (DOE) to study the possibility of reflecting sunlight into space as part of an effort fight global warming. The process is known as “albedo modification,” a type of geoengineering.
The scientists found that or albedo-modification techniques are likely to present “serious known and possible unknown environmental, social, and political risks, including the possibility of being deployed unilaterally.” The report was sponsored by the National Academy of Sciences, the U.S. intelligence community, NASA, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and the U.S. Department of Energy.
According to a 2013 study published in the Journal of Geophysical Research: Atmospheres, if geoengineering programs were started and then suddenly halted, the planet could see an immediate rise in temperatures, particularly over land. The study, titled, “The Impact of Abrupt Suspension of Solar Radiation Management,” seems to indicate that once geoengineering begins, the programs cannot be suspended without causing the very problem the engineering was intended to solve.

Shocking proof of Ancient Giants and nephilim existing in history. Evidence of Rephaim Anakim Annunaki and giant human skulls found.
Top 4 reasons why giants lived among us in ancient history.
# 1- Evidence of Giants found, and the mystery of giant human skulls.They are present in nearly every culture worldwide. From Europe, Eastern Europe and Africa to the United States.
Not only mentioned in many religious texts, such as the Bible and the Torah, for example King Og, written about in Deuteronomy, who was said to have been at least 12 feet tall.
Many ancient historians, such as Herodotus and Pliny the elder, also described them in great detail in their works as well.
They were written about in the legends of people worldwide. From the evidence of Goliath to he Paiute Indians, for example, of Nevada spoke of a race of red-haired giants, called the si-te-cah, that were 7-10 feet tall. They were said to be cannibals that preyed on the native population.
That is until, according to their history, they chased them into a cave, the same cave in which their remains were found centuries later, and lit a very large fire at the mouth of that cave to suffocate them inside. All of the skeletons found inside had long red hair.
# 2 – Giant Bones Found:
The bones are also found worldwide. Hundreds of skeletons have been found all over Europe, Africa, the Middle East as well as the United States.
Some ranging in height from 7-12 feet tall. And some even possibly taller. In the late 1950’s a 15 foot skeleton was found in Turkey. Whose skull alone was 3 times the size of a normal human skull.
While other, even larger skeletons have been unearthed, though little physical evidence still remains for the skeletons found in the Middle Ages, some reports put them at around 19 1/2 – 26 1/2 feet tall.
Although, the remains of 2 separate giants that stood around 36 feet tall were found in North Africa around 2500 years ago.
But how does this all tie into the great pyramid? Take a moment and do me a favor and hit the subscribe button.
Maybe it was these Giants who helped build the pyramids. The enormous blocks to us must have seemed like footrests to these gigantic humans.
In May of 1912, around lake Delavan in Wisconsin, giant bones were unearthed that stood 7.5-10 feet tall. They were even put on public display before they were taken down and “lost”.
# 3 –
The amount of bones found show that the extreme height was not an anomaly.
Most people today that are extremely tall have problems that are directly related to their height.
The tallest person, Robert Wadlow, ever to live was nearly 9 feet tall but had many physical problems, such as weak bones and joints and was unable to do even the most basic things that we, average sized people do everyday.
Thousands of giant bones have been uncovered worldwide with at least 60 specimens alone being taken from Lovelock cave in Nevada, and another 18 from Wisconsin. And that’s just in North America.
There are even reports of giants being found in Greece that have only 1 eye socket, matching the legends of Cyclops.
We are still finding them even today with recent discoveries made in Croatia.
# 4 – Science cover-up carbon dating evidence
These bones have all been carbon dated, just like all the bones they find that they tell us about.
The difference is that, since these bones do not fit into the traditional timeline they are kept from the public. Locked away in the basements of many museums around the world.
These bones range in age from a few hundred years to several thousand years old. Carbon dating is only used when it fits the accepted timeline.
Unfortunately when fossils are found that don’t match up they just sweep them under the rug.
And keep them hidden from the eyes of curious minds.

Back in February, I argued that the death of Antonin Scalia instantly made the 2nd Amendment the biggest issue of the 2016 presidential election. Since then, Republicans have been busy bickering about transgender bathrooms and who they hate more: Trump or Cruz. While they indulge in that incredible waste of time, the left is cruising toward a future where the Constitution is decimated by a statist Supreme Court pick.
Obama has already nominated Merrick Garland to fill Scalia’s position on the bench. He’s about as anti-2A as they come, and if he’s confirmed, you can be 100% certain that he’ll overturn 2008’s District of Columbia v Heller decision. That would eliminate the concept of gun ownership as an individual right, basically gutting the 2nd Amendment.

The move, coming in a presidential election year, outraged Republicans
APRIL 23, 2016
Gov. Terry McAuliffe signed an executive order Friday restoring the voting rights of 206,000 ex-felons, a sweeping action the governor said was aimed largely at rectifying Virginia’s “long and sad history” of suppressing African-American voting power.
The move, coming in a presidential election year, outraged Republicans who accused McAuliffe of abusing his power to help longtime ally Hillary Clinton win a battleground state by putting more likely Democratic voters on the books.
The governor’s order applies to all violent and nonviolent felons who had finished their sentence and supervised release as of Friday, even those who have not applied for a restoration of rights. Previous Virginia governors have restored rights on an individual basis, but none has done it for an entire category of offenders with one pen stroke.

The majority of the 19 defendants charged in the 2014 Bunkerville standoff — including rancher Cliven Bundy and four of his sons — indicated Friday they want to exercise their constitutional rights and go to trial as soon as possible.
The move appeared to surprise prosecutors, who told a federal judge that they had previously obtained the support of most of the defendants for an eight-month trial delay until February.
Many of the defendants and their lawyers announced in court that they had changed their minds, prompting the lead prosecutor in the case, Steven Myhre, to suggest some were “playing games” with the “extremely serious charges” they are facing.
All 19 defendants, who are in federal custody, appeared together for the first time. They were dressed in jail garb and chains and, with their lawyers, filled up the courtroom, including the jury box. A dozen deputy U.S. marshals were on hand for extra security.
Myhre said the trial delay was needed to give prosecutors more time to turn over to the defendants the massive amount of evidence authorities have collected since the April 12, 2014, armed confrontation with law enforcement near Bunkerville.
Most of the defendants are facing conspiracy, extortion, firearms and assault charges that could land them in prison for the rest of their lives if convicted.
Defense lawyers argued they needed to see the government’s evidence to make an informed decision about giving up their clients’ constitutional speedy-trial rights. The defendants have a right to go to trial within 70 days of being charged.
The defense arguments prompted U.S. Magistrate Judge Peggy Leen to order prosecutors to turn over a large portion of the evidence within two weeks.
Leen promised a written decision later on whether to declare the case complex and delay the trial into next year. She issued an order in the meantime putting off the scheduled May 2 trial without setting a new date.
She also ordered defense lawyers to let her know by next Friday their position on the government’s proposed protective order barring the lawyers from giving copies of key trial evidence, including government investigative reports, to the public and media. Prosecutors contend the order is needed to protect the safety of witnesses.
But many of the defense lawyers believe the proposed order is too broad.
Wednesday, the Department of the Treasury announced that Harriet Tubman will boot Andrew Jackson from the face of the $20. After months of debate and controversy over how to incorporate a woman’s portrait onto the $10 bill, Treasury Secretary Jack Lew announced plans to redesign the $10, $20 and $5 bill. All three denominations will have a female presence. Treasury Secretary Jack Lew also announced Wednesday that Andrew Jackson will move from the front of the $20 to the back, making way for Tubman. She’ll become the first black woman ever to front a U.S. banknote.
As you know, Tubman helped to smuggle slaves off of plantations and into freedom. And she carried guns for protection and wasn’t afraid to use them. I fully expect liberals to try to change her story.
Harriet Tubman escorted escaped slaves from Democrat (Confederate) slave holders. They followed hidden trails from the Southern States to Slave free northern states. Lincoln was the 1st Republican (abolitionist/free the slaves) president. Murdered by a Democrat John Wilkes Booth.
Harriet Tubman carried a small pistol with her on her rescue missions, mostly for protection from slave catchers, but also to encourage weak-hearted runaways from turning back and risking the safety of the rest of the group. Tubman carried a sharp-shooters rifle during the Civil War.
Tubman, who died in 1913 at the age of 91, escaped slavery in the south and eventually led hundreds of escaped slaves to freedom as a “conductor” of the Underground Railroad. After the slaves were freed, Tubman was a staunch supporter of a woman’s right to vote.
Before the Civil War ended, State “Slave Codes” prohibited slaves from owning guns. After President Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation in 1863, and after the Thirteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution abolishing slavery was adopted and the Civil War ended in 1865, States persisted in prohibiting blacks, now freemen, from owning guns under laws renamed “Black Codes.” They did so on the basis that blacks were not citizens, and thus did not have the same rights, including the right to keep and bear arms protected in the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, as whites. This view was specifically articulated by the U.S. Supreme Court in its infamous 1857 decision in Dred Scott v. Sandford to uphold slavery.
The United States Congress overrode most portions of the Black Codes by passing the Civil Rights Act of 1866. The legislative histories of both the Civil Rights Act and the Fourteenth Amendment, as well as The Special Report of the Anti-Slavery Conference of 1867, are replete with denunciations of those particular statutes that denied blacks equal access to firearms.
On January 10, 2013, Lew was nominated by President Barack Obama, On February 27, 2013, the Senate confirmed Lew for the position. Obama’s policies are clearly anti-gun ownership by ordinary citizens. But not all U.S. leaders agree on this point and the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution is clear on the point. Private gun ownership is to protect the civilian population from the overreach of the Government.
