The Meaning Behind The Gadsden Flag

The Meaning Behind The Gadsden Flag

Don't Tread on Me

The Gadsden flag and how the rattlesnake became a symbol of American independence

In December 1775, "An American Guesser" anonymously wrote to the Pennsylvania Journal:

"She never begins an attack, nor, when once engaged, ever surrenders: She is therefore an emblem of magnanimity and true courage. … she never wounds 'till she has generously given notice, even to her enemy, and cautioned him against the danger of treading on her."

"I confess I was wholly at a loss what to make of the rattles, 'till I went back and counted them and found them just thirteen, exactly the number of the Colonies united in America; and I recollected too that this was the only part of the Snake which increased in numbers. …

"'Tis curious and amazing to observe how distinct and independent of each other the rattles of this animal are, and yet how firmly they are united together, so as never to be separated but by breaking them to pieces. One of those rattles singly, is incapable of producing sound, but the ringing of thirteen together, is sufficient to alarm the boldest man living."

Most historians now agree that this "American Guesser" was Benjamin Franklin.

Anthony Weiner scandal

Anthony Weiner Scandal a Warning to Congress

Disgraced former NY Congressman Anthony Weiner and current candidate for Mayor of New York City has begged for forgiveness yet again after another sexting victim has come forward. I am not going to post all of the sordid details. I am sure you have already heard them or you can find them on the Internet with a search.

It seems to me the timing off this recent incident suggests something else is going on.

The vote by the house defeating a bill to defund the NSA in light of the overwhelming outrage of voters over the allegations by Edward Snowden that the NSA is spying on all Americans is very strange. You would think every member of Congress would be eager to pass this bill and be a hero to their constituants back home.But they did the opposite. Not passing means the spying will continue.

Could it be that Weiner was used by the NSA to send a warning to Congress? Obviously the politicians know they are being spied on by this same agency. Did they do their masters bidding? 

That is the really scary implecation here. If you think about the announcement by Weiner and then the non stop analysis by cable news, standing their with his wife by his side. It could be seen as a warning.

Did lawmakers, I really should say lawbreakers, get a note or some kind of message;


Clare Daly in Irish Parliament Called Obama War Criminal and Hypocrite of the Century


Clare Daly in Irish Parliament called Obama "war criminal" & "hypocrite of the century" after he presented himself as a champion for peace. She cited Obama's drone murders, his wars in Iraq & Afghanistan and his involvement in the Syrian destabilization. She mentioned that her criticisms of Obama were in common with the American people. This American AGREES. We learn more here than we learn from the American media. Her comments were quite similar to many of the things that were said by Sen. Rand Paul when he gave Obama and the US Senate a 13 hour lesson on the Bill of Rights. 

America has become a police state. No part of Bill of Rights still HONORED. Google NDAA & Indefinite Detention. Guns are being outlawed. Searches without warrants, checkpoints, wiretaps, GOVERNMENT surveillance of financial records, medical records, emails, internet ETC. Cameras are everywhere. Confiscatory taxation, civil forfeiture. Feds just bought 2.2 Billion rounds of HOLLOW POINT AMMO (illegal to use in wars). Feds just bought 30000 Predator drones for domestic use. What we have allowed to happen to others will now happen to us.

Thomas Jefferson said:
"The price of freedom is eternal vigilance." 

I add to this:
"The battle for liberty is never won, and is never lost.
The battle for liberty always continues.
It is never too late, and it is never soon enough, to defend freedom.
No matter how enslaved we are, we always have hope. 
No matter how free we are we are never safe.
Any generation that fails to defend freedom will lose it.
The next generation will have to shed blood to gain it back. When the defense of liberty becomes a crime, tyranny is already in force. At that point failure to defend liberty makes slavery at certainty. John Perna

"Of course the people don't want war. But after all, it's the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it's always a simple matter to drag the people along whether it's a democracy, a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism, and exposing the country to greater danger." Herman Goering at Nuremberg trials

Shameful Display! Politicians Bitching About Food Stamps!

Food stamp assistanceYou know what chaps my ass? I just spent some time watching CSPAN specifically the House Session today on farm policies and nutrition. Several Senators in a row took to the floor to argue for cutting the meager benefits allotted for food stamp assistance.

Several of them had the gall to quote from the Holy Bible; 2 Thes 3:10 Even while we were with you, we gave you this rules: "Whoever does not work should not eat."

Outrageous! These are the same politicians who have no problem funding 10 years of terror and destruction in the middle east.. I guess they missed the 10 commandments when they were studing the bible. Specifically Thou shall not murder.

It is absured statement to make considering it is the destructive policies of these politicians that have destroyed high paying jobs and left millions without work or work that pays a decent living wage.

These are the same politicians that are ok with the CIA bribes to foreign leaders like Hamid Karzai President of Afghanistan. REPORT: Tens of millions of U.S. dollars in cash were delivered by the CIA in suitcases, backpacks and plastic shopping bags to the office of Afghanistan President Hamid Karzai for more than a decade, the New York Times says, citing current and former advisers to the Afghan leader.

The majority of these same Senators are responsible for the continued failed policies foreign and domestic that have absolutly devistated the middle class, stood by while corporate America has decimated the new deal policies that benefitted many of our countries poorest people. People who just need a little help surviving under these policies. 

You do not hear them bitching about Exxon corporation getting billions in tax breaks. Or General Electric paying no taxes for the last several years.

It is time to throw these warmongers and looters out of office and out of this country! They are trash and not following the US Constitution, the law of the land, and the document they have sworn an oath to uphold and protect.

I am sick of watching my fellow man struggle, the children suffer, and the endless parade of scandals and corruption that plauge this Government. For five years people have been waiting for this Government to do something about the economy and jobs. And they consitantly persue laws and legislation that have nothing to do with the economy.

I would hope that my readers will step up and call these scoundrels out! Call them up, send a letter, send a tweet or email and let them have it!

If we cannot help our fellow man then what good are we? Why are we here? Surely not to engage in endless wars and destruction;

Video 1932 The Real History of The United States

Great documentary about the history of the United States. Immediately important is the review of the FDR administrations respose to the great depression. Especially in light of our current situation 5 years into the greatest depression since then. Some time is spent explaining the American System of economics, something we should get back to immediately. There are a few things I would have added but all in all it is a good refresher on our great history and the perseverance, diligence, and creativity of some great Americans.

Bank on Students The Most Important Legislation Since WW ll

 Senator Elizabeth Warren

Newly elected Senator Elizabeth Warren hits the ground running with her Bank on Students Loan Fairness Act 2013, which compels the Federal Reserve Bank to offer college loans to students at the same rate they give the zombie banks 0.75%. This is landmark legislation that effectivly forces the FED to utilize it's massive credit generating capability to help students and their families pay for college.  

The current student loan interest rate is set to double in July 2013.

Many so called experts are against the bill and are saying it will raise the deficit. This is untrue. Her bill demands and compels the Federal Reserve to create a credit facility to fund this legislation. It would not impact the Federal budget at all. 

The other two proposals one by the Republicans and the other being pushed by the President and Democrats would continue to allow the predatory lending practices that are sufocating our younger generation. The Presidents bill is more of the same. It would tie the student loan interest rate to the market.

We know that the markets are rigged. The recent libor scandel demonstrates the extent of the manipulation. So tieing the interest rate to the market will allow the bankers to manipulate the rates thus driving studens into further debt when they are just starting out in life. Leaving school and being saddeled with massive debts means they will postpone marriage, buying cars and homes. 

We must motivate and support Senator Elizabeth Warrens Bank on Students bill! Call your representitive demand to know why they are not supporting this measure. Tell them the bankers have made enough money at the expense of the people.Talk to your friends, family, and neighbors. Send an email. 

This is the way to regain control of the Federal Reserve bank. This should be the first step in turning this predatory economy around and make it work for the people and not just the 1%. Get going!!!

Professor Webster G. Tarpley has been on top of this issue since day one. Please see his asessment of this ground breaking legislation including the implications for the Federal Reserve and how we can use this as a start to nationalize the Fed and use it to get the country out of this depression. Give Yourself a Real Graduation Present: Cut the Interest on Your Student Loans to 0.75%
