When protestors took over federal buildings: a little thing called history

CBS News, October 4, 2018: “Protesters opposed to Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh took over a Senate office building on Thursday, with actresses Amy Schumer and Emily Ratajkowski among the demonstrators detained. The Senate will hold a procedural vote on Kavanaugh’s nomination on Friday, setting in motion a possible final vote on Saturday.”

“New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand addressed protesters, telling them, ‘This is a moment about all of you — all of you are speaking truth to power because you care about the future, you care about our children, you care about who is leading this country and who sits on the highest court in the land’.”

“Capitol police said about 300 people were detained. In a video shared widely on Twitter, Schumer said ‘I think we’re going to get arrested’.”

Women’s March tweeted: “We were planning to shut down the Capitol Building but the authorities were so scared of this #WomensWave that they shut it down for us. 1000+ women, survivors, and allies have gathered in the Hart Senate Building. Every hallway. Every floor.”

Very easy-going press coverage. No problem. No outrage. No accusations of Insurrection from the mainstream press.

It was a protest from the Left, covered by the Left. And the Capitol Police promptly shut down the original target: the Capitol Building. They didn’t lead the protestors INTO the Capitol, as they astonishingly did a few days ago, on January 6.

Here’s another item from 2018 on the same protest—ABC News: “Capitol Hill police said 128 people were arrested for ‘unlawfully demonstrating’ outside of senators’ offices and in the main rotunda of the Russell Senate Building. About half as many protesters were arrested for protesting Kavanaugh on Thursday.”

Ho-hum. Another day at the office. Not a word about “the desecration of our democracy.”

Now if you really want to revisit a chaotic moment in federal-building takeovers, let’s go back to 1954. The US House of Representatives Archives has an account:

“On March 1, 1954, while Members gathered on the House Floor for an upcoming vote, three men and one woman entered the visitor’s gallery above the chamber and quietly took their seats. All four belonged to the Puerto Rican Nationalist Party and only hours earlier had traveled from New York City to Washington, DC.”

“The United States had annexed Puerto Rico in 1898, and the island’s relationship with the federal government had long been a point of contention. Some Puerto Ricans sought to maintain their relationship with the mainland, and others, like the four visitors in the House that day, argued for an independent Puerto Rico.”

“The Capitol had few security protocols at the time, and the four Puerto Rican nationalists entered the gallery armed with handguns. Around 2:30 p.m. they indiscriminately opened fire onto the House Floor and unfurled a Puerto Rican flag in a violent act of protest meant to draw attention to their demand for Puerto Rico’s immediate independence.”

“Five Congressmen were wounded in the shooting.”

“Members, House Pages, and police officers quickly helped detain three of the assailants outside the gallery, while the fourth escaped the Capitol and was apprehended later that afternoon.”

Joe Bartlett, a House Page at the time, recalls: “I had just had a bundle of bills and had just stepped out the center door, on my way to the Senate, with these bills. I heard what sounded like, a stack of folding chairs falling—these metal folding chairs…I turned around and ran right back into the chamber, and they were sorting out the casualties. They were scrambling in the gallery…it was a helter-skelter scene. I went down the center aisle, and as I went down the aisle, [Clifford] Davis of Tennessee was sitting there…Davis had been shot through the calf, and he had his foot up on the seat in front of him and holding both sides of a bullet wound…I walked right into the well, where poor Al [Alvin Morell] Bentley was stretched out there…the wound contributed to his early death years later. Bentley had been shot through the abdomen…Representative [Kenneth Allison] Roberts of Alabama probably suffered more, maybe longer than anyone. He was shot through the knee. And that bullet had come through the chair that Sam Rayburn, as the Minority Leader, had regularly sat in. Fortunately, Mr. Rayburn was not sitting there at that moment. The bullet shattered Roberts’ knee…Ben Jensen of Iowa was shot in the shoulder, and the bullet followed under his hide to his waist…”

The House of Representatives survived.

After what happened on January 6, 2021, Congress will survive.

So will the endless pompous posturing of the legislators and the press about the Capitol Building being “The People’s House.”

The squalid deals contrived and voted upon in that House have nothing to do with The People.

For the place to become The People’s House, a revolution would have to occur. I’m not talking about the January 6, 2021, false flag.

I’m talking about a vast decentralization of federal power, which would return the central government to its original role, as laid out in the Constitution.

In that revolution, individual liberty and freedom would be paramount. Again.

The main river of human history reveals a war for freedom has been fought from the beginning.

It is still being fought.

Pacified humanity is the disease.

We are the cure.

    On decentralized power- I was under the impression that the States have authority over things that are NOT given to the Feds under the Constitution. For example, education is NOT specified– so that goes to the States. “Where, in the Constitution, is there mention of education? A. There is none; education is a matter reserved for the states.” I suppose we simply have to read what the Constitution says. I think Betsy DeVos resignation should be followed by the Dept of Education– at the fed level- be devolved. The following webpage/dept is anti-constitution: https://www.ed.gov/

      Continuation of Jan. 6th Observable Oddities

      16. Timing for Capitol building break-in doesn’t add up — American Thinker. https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2021/01/timing_doesnt_line_up_for_trump_to_have_incited_violence_at_the_capitol.html

      American Thinker article by Allan J. Favish, lawyer, points out that Trump was not done his speech until 1:10 as proven on video time stamps. The break-in occurred at 1:06 before the end of Trumps speech and the Capitol building was 1 1/2 miles away from the Ellipse where Trump’s people were.

      17. The “facilited-by-Capitol-Hill-Police-break-in” occurred despite the JOINT SESSION only having reached the A’s in an alphabetical list of states to have their electoral votes counted, and accepted or protested. Why would Trumpers break-in BEFORE allowing the joint session to play out? Logically they would not.

      18. Trump said that after his speech that he knew his supporters would “peacefully and patriotically” protest the acceptance of the electoral counts that were fraudulent but MSM including ABC news transcript DELETED that sentence!

    • Jim says:

      They gave that up when the feds said we’ll give you this money if you give up your sovereignty. Gee, who’d have thought that politicians were just a bunch of ugly whores? ????

    • Haniel Adhar says:

      As is science as well as health care.

      What about separation of “science and state”?

      We need an amendment that permanently keeps the two separate, because since FDR government has used science as a weapon to silence and oppress opposition.

      Which was exactly what Fauci’s job has been since 1985

      • Jim S Smith says:

        The Soviet “Cheka” did very much the same thing, especially under the (temporary) rule of Nikoli Yezhov (AKA: “The Poison Dwarf”). HE used the fake-science of “psychiatry” to “diagnose” all dissenters as “mentally damaged/unstable” – and rendered them to the “state psychiatric institutions” (like we actually HAVE now, all across the USA!)

    • Bob Klinck says:

      A centralized financial system is certain to lead over time to centralization of everything else. There is no way to reconcile people power with financial oligarchy.

    • Lyn P says:

      Federal-level “health” agencies must be utterly dissolved as well – not about population health but abusers of authority and crony corruption they spin to wield control, profit, and wide-scale havoc.

      See David Martin’s work and videos cataloging the extensive crimes and fraud perpetrated by the long-game collusion of just Fauchi’s dealings alone.

      The closest thing to mentioning education in the Constitution is the work “College”. And that is talking about the Electoral College. Not education.

      It’s been reported, that the REAL political reason why the SOTH is asking VP to utilize the 25th A. is so that a list will be created of “aiders & abettors” (those of Cabinet who vote “nay”) to the Prez., from which retaliation can be acted upon.

      Guilt by association.

    • Arby says:

      I hate Trump. I hate all gangsters (and murderers) and most politicians are gangsters. And I believe he won the election charade. And I believe that even though that whole fakey electoral operation is coming to an end, for they are tired of pretending, as Catherine Austin Fitts notes, they still milk it – sowing chaos, division, mind-numbing anger, etc..

      • Jim says:

        Hate to tell you Arby, but all of them are fake. They are politicians, and politicians lie to get their power. You are merely wishing they weren’t all fake.

        • Arby says:

          Your addressing Arby but not me. Why, I don’t know? Are you taking issue with “most,” in my comment. When I see politicians get up in covid 1984 and revolt, I have to say “most,” not because I’m a believer in Scott Jensen and Herbert Kickl and the Italian politicians and others who have taken their parliaments to task over their lies and brutality, but because that’s the reasonable position to take. I don’t know what I don’t know. But, based on what I do know, Scott Jensen et al should not be called gangsters. Demonstrate that he should be and I’ll call him a gangster. I have no problem with that.

          In any case, it’s relative. Electoral politics was a charade before covid 1984. Even those who own and rule and ruin the world are tired of it and plan to drop it. And it is not a part of their envisioned new world order that most describe as technocratic. That system will be devoid of political parties, politicians and even the pretense of democratic, political representation.

        • Arby says:

          My reply to you wasn’t posted. Let’s try again.

          It’s not reasonable for me to assert that absolutely every politician is a gangster for the reason that that’s not what I see. Scott Jensen for example. Herbert Kickl in Austria for example. He was kicked out of Doug Ford’s cabinet, but Randy Hillier here in Canada for example. Sara Cunial and a colleague (forget his name) in Italy for example. And I’m sure that I’m missing some. There’s Ron DeSantis in Florida. He buys the covid propaganda but not the police State measures. There’s a few governors who follow his example, if I’m not mistaken. But, again, most are gangsters. Canadian politicians are absolutely awful. That’s the world.

          I think that the vast majority (99%) of politicians are gangsters.

          • Jim says:

            You are stating that certain people have a legitimate claim in having more control over your life and property than you do. No one has ever lived who fits such a description, because no one can have more rights than another,or over another. They are all gangsters. It’s just you approve of the reasons why some are stealing your, and everyone else’s, money. Government is force and the belief in authority is what perpetuates this unholy beast. You say you are Christian? Read about Samuel. To believe in government is turning your back on God. Or do you think you can serve two masters?

          • Arby says:

            Sara’s Italian colleague: Vittorio Sgarbi.

          • Jim says:

            I’m having to assume that is a politician that you serve. Which means, according to the bible you say you believe in, that you have chosen to serve man rather than God.
            I will also say that, since not everyone will agree with this politician, that you are in favor of the force they’ll need to employ to have others comply with their dictates.
            And that you are supporting all the extortions of monies from people who do/don’t agree with what they’ll spend their money upon.
            And that you are supporting every single action they take outside of the ones you may openly endorse.

            There is nothing moral or christian in supporting any politician.

    • Sue says:

      Not as much to shame him as to try and stop him, because they know things about what Trump has planned, (and information to be declassified) that the general public does not.

    • Jim S Smith says:

      This is all to publicly destroy Trump.

      Assassination was out of the question, because then He would have become a martyr. The system-criminals couldn’t have that!


      By publicly shaming and then destroying his legacy, they also hope to destroy the growing resistance movement of the true freedom-lovers – by associating them with the labeled and shamed “criminal” in their eyes.

      Some of us knew it was going to come to this, because it is much harder to destroy a popular man’s legacy – without first publicly destroying his image, what he represents, and any modicum of notoriety he once had. The “big media” and “big social” are just doing what they were originally designed to do.

      That’s why all the millions of CIA-money that went into building up companies like TWITTER, FACEBOOK, GOOGLE, AMAZON, EBAY, etc. – AND that is also why these companies became multi-billion-dollar companies in just a few short years! It wasn’t all because of their “innovative ideas”. It was all because they were incubated, and grown by the government insiders – using the so-called “People’s money” to fund it.

      THIS is all a product of the “TOTAL INFORMATION AWARENESS” project that was brewing long before 9-11-2001.

  6. Nora Claypool says:

    Your examples point to the “left spin/right spin” thing that has plagued us for two centuries, and divided a once united people who thought they were free, but were always being manipulated. I can’t help but wish ill for these horrible traitors in congress, who deserve to be shot, after a fair trial for treason. I suppose it was needed for all the traitors to be exposed in a manner they can never overcome with more lies. They’re done. Why didn’t Trump live up to his reputation as a brawler and employ the Insurrection Act?

    • Tim_2A says:

      Traitors are HANGED, “after a fair trial,” although fairness is just a quaint, and ignored, custom to them.

      -We’ll teach the traitors their place.
      -High rope, in each face!


      • Nora Claypool says:

        They recently upgraded the punishments for treason to include being shot.

        Love your poetry! It’s likely to be reality.

        • Jim S Smith says:

          In wartime (or under a declared “war”):

          It is “military law” that all such offenses are tried under, and the punishment for conviction of treason IS death. Most crimes that would be merely prison time, are handed a death sentence by military courts martial, with very few options nor opportunities to appeal!

          We will probably see military tribunals being set up across the nation very soon. The “system” players and insiders have for years, already joked about having real guillotines set up in very public spaces, so that all may see how serious the “Powers-That-Be” are. – My last recollection of a few news articles a few years back had it, that there were in fact large orders for guillotines made by government agencies/departments – along with very large orders for “body bags”! – If this is something beyond “urban legend”, then my instincts from reading the history of the last several centuries – has me already shuddering in the possibility of our “social/cultural revolution” to be – becoming a most horrendous sight the world has seen in a very long time!

    If you were really SERIOUS about what you just wrote, Jon, then WHY have you IGNORED my many PLEAS to you to use your platform and writing talents to make the story of PETER ERIC HENDRICKSON WIDELY KNOWN?

    I’ve contacted you NUMEROUS TIMES over the years about him, and you left his story hanging high and dry.

    This is the man who HAS DONE what you are looking for!

    Maybe it’s not too late…but maybe it already is. Each of you must decide for yourself.


    For me, The USA DIED eight years ago today. There were some good things about it, but a lot of terrible things, too. The worst was witnessing so many “good people” betray this country in its hour of need.

    It’s been The Zombie Apocalypse ever since!

    • Eluard says:

      Hey Artie,

      Jon didn’t leave his story “high and dry.” He didn’t “leave” it at all. Jon has his own work as you can see from his admirably voluminous reporting the last 10 months. You always portray yourself as “the guy who really knows the score” so why don’t YOU write that guy’s story? Why hang it on Jon as if he’s neglecting the scoop of the millenium?

      Perhaps you should Plead to your own lack of creative or journalistic initiative.

    I think that “we the people” are being played by our enemy with all these breaking news stories coming out. You know that enemy, the one that you feel in your soul as frustration, like there is a secret you just aren’t privy to.

    Keep your enemy in a constant state of stress believing that something BIG is coming and keep them stressing till the next big bombshell so they never relax long enough to see that the news given in the previous BIG alert never amounted to its billing. All of these stories, never conclusive, always in the future, never resolved always in limbo and never never the truth.

    America is now CNN! The cooperate takeover is near completion. Divide and conquer baby, brought to you by our favorite oxymoron’s the military industrial complex! They have our best interests in mind, world peace is coming soon, trust them, its just one more battle away rofl. Salute!!

      That’s what I was saying about a large portion of the “alt-media” circus too. How many of them are worth probably MILLIONS by now, and yet – what have THEY done, but just “talk” and more “talk”, while claiming that they are lead the “revolution”. – Say WHAAAAT?!?!?

      So, my belief is that we have lots of “controlled-opposition” in the mix too. That’s another reason why We, as a Nation of People, have not really accomplished much, other than high-“Hopium” and well-wishes.

      It would be nice if more “alt-media” blogs would also present some real and sane solutions that the People can actually do in their local area (like perhaps – link up with other similar group-efforts on Constitutional Restoration, etc). Plus, many of the more direct solutions, I share with many of my friends and associates, because those who have published those ideas – have done well to clearly explain them better than I probably could have.

  9. Eluard says:

    How can anyone take any of these senators and congressman seriously. I apprecite Gaetz and Cruz standing up for election integrity but even they…

    After that recent Stimulus bill exposed the billions going to foreign countries, which has been happening for many years, millions of people saw what they do with our money. You can’t hide that anymore (but with the current massive purge they’re sure trying).

    The whole thing is a sham. We have to realize that they LITERALLY do not work for us. Until then, what can be done to change our legislative branch of government? Removing all corporate money from politics is the only way. No more lobbying. Two terms only for these people then they go.

        Mr. Danu,

        Your advanced political, intellectual and spiritual perspicacity is simply too much for this plebeian comment section to withstand. Please tone down your advanced illumination.

        Perhaps you can take a break to plead with Mr. Rappoport to take on the burden of a cause you find too challenging to publicize yourself.

    Dear Friends and Lovers of Liberty

    I have waited a few days to comment on any of last week’s happenings; to moderate my heart emotions with my mind and vice-versa.

    SEPARATION of POWERS: The Congressional Opening of Ballots by the Vice-President

    a. According to the US Constitution, Article II, the Vice-President, acting as the Senate President Pro-Temporare, is the ONLY ONE who can open the envelopes delivered by the various state electors.
    b. The joint Houses of Congress do NOT have the authority to open the envelopes. Their only role is to witness and VERIFY what instructions the envelopes contain.
    c. NEITHER the Vice-President nor the Congress has the authority to REJECT the WILL of the STATES who have sent in their electoral ballots. Their only job is to read and tabulate the results. Anything else usurps the rights of the states and their people.

    This is key to understanding what Pence did or did not do according to your perspective. (I saw the coin/medal drop into Pence’s hand, but I also saw Pence looking strangely at it and then someone’s hand motion to him to “hide it.” I do not think Pence understood what he was being given. I also saw the “elbowing” session with Pelosi, but that does not mean they are buddies — how many times have you had someone want to elbow or fist bump you and you did it but really did not want to?)

    The Vice-President could have refused to open the envelopes, but he would then be neglecting his duty as per the Constitution and he would have to be removed from his role as the President of the Senate and someone else would have taken over for the proceedings.

    Congress HAS NO AUTHORITY TO ACCEPT OR REJECT THE ELECTORAL BALLOTS. This is a state’s rights issue. The state’s ARE TELLING CONGRESS WHO IS GOING TO BE THE NEXT PRESIDENT. Congress can argue over it and make a show of it, but they cannot reject what the state’s have given them — if they could, then the states lose power over selecting the President of the united states, and thus the people of the states lose that power ultimately.

    The only legal opportunities now:

    1. State legislatures can still change their electoral ballots before a new President is sworn in — they choose the electors irrespective of what the u.s. Congress says about it.
    2. A case should be presented before the Supreme Court that shows the Constitution was broken by allowing state governors, supreme courts and/or secretaries of state change or alter election rules and laws when they had no authority: AND it DOES NOT matter whether the legislatures challenged their authority to do so or not. If the Constitution is broken and no one speaks out about it before the votes are given makes NO difference — the Constitution is still broken.


    Last night I watched in horror a 16 minute video concerning antifa and blm and how they attack people coming out of Trump rallies in California (maybe other places, too, I don’t know). We have not had TV for years, and we live in quiet, peaceful, rural VT and had no idea how vicious these people were.


    Read the whole article and scroll down to the video that is not blocked by age (you can watch that one, too. I am guessing it is even more gruesome and violent, so I left it alone).

    The article is very poignant. I do NOT agree with violence unless it is to protect someone else from imminent danger. However, I sympathize with those who went to the u.s. Capitol building and entered in:

    1. They have had their substance taken from them (jobs, businesses, means of supporting a living, homes, etc….) and only been given a measly $1200 apiece (we still haven’t received our stimulus!) and are being offered another measly $600 apiece. EVEN $2000 apiece, as the President and democrats want to give, IS CHUMP CHANGE.
    2. They have been verbally abused and insulted by people, politicians (yes, I separate them from people), news media, and more
    3. Some are fired from work or ostracized at work for speaking in favor of Trump and freedom
    4. They have also been physically abused; had their businesses looted, ransacked and even burned; their neighbourhoods taken over, trashed, burned; they have been threatened with physical violence and been scared to leave their homes; some of them have been killed

    Meanwhile, the perpetrating THUGS have been let off scot-free, the politicians still abuse the “insurrectionists” while the media still insult them. So, they break into the home their ancestors built with their sweat and money, and the building they have kept open with their hard-earned money to house people who are supposed to work for them and are paid by them!

    READ THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE again and tell me those who came to the Capitol building and entered in are not the same ones who were abused by King George. They have every right to be angry.

    But, what did these angry people really do? NOTHING but a little looting and they made a lot of noise. IT IS THEIR HOUSE.

      You are absolutely right.

      People will need to get organized at the grassroots level first. The first people to go after are the local politicians. These baby steps need to be taken first. While all this is happening people will need to be aware that there will be individuals planted to make their efforts worthless. That part is not easy but if you read history you will realize that this element is always there.

    • Austin says:

      Yes, AK, what a thoughtful response. I was there and it highly resonates with my spirit, which I share with our Creator. Only physical contact I had with any law enforcement was in a helping a defeated and wounded fellow human being into safety. But I do not disagree for one second with those who were fighting to get into “OUR HOUSE.” Having been there, on the front lines, we would constantly hear (directed toward the officers) “we’re not fighting against you,” “you are not our enemy,” “we have been supporting, standing for and fighting for you this whole time,” etc.

      I have to temper myself because I struggle to balance my love of freedom and willingness to fight for it with my ultimate duty toward God and enacting His will through my life. And for them to project what happened there as insurrection or whatever, my goodness, if we really wanted to fight it would have been ugly. After all, from our perspectives, we were fighting for the very soul of this nation. And I’m not even a Trump supporter. I’m anti politician. What’s going on now is nuts. And many people ask, when it comes to these various atrocities committed by the likes of the Nazis over time, how could that every come to pass within a peoples that is not that different from ourselves?? Well, this is how it happens. Thank God for God. The only Rock on which I cling to.

      Regardless of your view of what Pence should/shouldn’t have done/was able to do, you are neglecting the Supreme Court’s role. They REFUSED the Texas lawsuit, which was a constitutional lawsuit if there ever was one. And Roberts, along with six others, are to blame. That is where this election was really lost. It was a day that left the world knowing that the USA no longer followed laws and established order. We were done.

    • Jim S Smith says:

      All evidence was ready to present to SCOTUS, and the various lower federal courts: AND thety all refused to hear any of the challenges, and refused to view any of the documents that were to be presented as evidence, they completely disallowed or ignored the willing testimony of the witnesses.


      The “court system” is also in on the game.

      This entire fiasco was pre-planned years ago. 2020 was NOT the first incident of election-tampering/fraud. There have been many other incidences over the years. LBJ’s senatorial run in 1948 ended up with him becoming senator through similar election-shenanigans. He was helped into office.

      That’s just one past case, from that many years ago!

      This entire system of “government” has been based for a very long time. It just took the obviousness of the year “2020”, to make it too plain, but still – too many “followers” of big-government refuse to heed the warning signs all around them.

      This Nation is going down, and very little is going to save it. I’m afraid it is going to be more of a battle for self-preservation and survival. Guess what??? – That usually involves violence, when it is the control-freak parasites who “up the ante” and further challenge our own survival.

      All those who refuse to raise a sword when they are cornered to another’s destiny, have already given up the fight and succumbed to the will of evil. – My prayers be with them, but I will also be ensuring my best chance of survival – with or without them at my side.

      There really has! been “a turn,” as it were, as to a lose of subtlety.

      It is NOW, just in-your-face, all the time. Rank obviousness.

      I read a book once that described this scenario:

      A Magician, aided by a darkened Stage. He had become so convinced of his talent, that he tested his audience, by turning on the stage lights.

      Many, still didn’t see.

    • Jim S Smith says:

      They no longer need to be subtle.

      The majority have been so steeped in the propaganda of “hopelessness” for so long, that they are already compliant to the fullest. Those of us who feel like we are living in “Bizarro-World” are probably barely perceptible to the public consciousness – that is – until the “media” turns its information-big-guns our direction (“coming soon to a camp near you”).

      It really is time to consider how folks are to survive off-grid as much as possible.

      The next stage of the game may even include shutting down all “essential services” (like electricity, water, EMS, etc.), in a play to starve us all into submission. This has also been planned for. Just look at some of the latest excerpts of the “Civil Defense Manual(s)” and various military “roundtable discussions”.

      This is NOT going to end very well for most!

    “The squalid deals contrived and voted upon in that House have nothing to do with The People. For the place to become The People’s House, a revolution would have to occur…
    a vast decentralization of federal power, which would return the central government to its original role, as laid out in the Constitution.”

    The Constitution (as it effectively exists today) is held aloft but it’s like an empty cereal box that has a nice package and look to it but all the contents have long since been removed. We wake up hungry and see the nice colorful box and get our taste buds ready to accept some sustenance. But over the last many generations, the good cereal has been slowly emptied out so that all that remains is a memory of what it used to taste like. The Constitution Cereal Box is waved around today to give the appearance that it still exists. But it’s empty. What we do get is that steady diet of those squalid deals and more empty promises. Central government has no incentive to decentralize. It is going to consume everything and everyone because that’s all it knows how to do… and it CAN.

    “The main river of human history reveals a war for freedom has been fought from the beginning. It is still being fought. Pacified humanity is the disease. We are the cure.”

    We COULD be the cure. But unrealized potential does… nothing. How does one ignite wisdom and energy to act for positive change in a population that has been bred from the beginning to be “Pacified”. That is the problem today. The 1960s generation had a few that had some… spunk. But the children of the ‘60s generation, and the generations that followed them, has been deliberately bred to be passive and accepting.

    We have the cure right in our hands but forgot how to use it. Or even why we would want to. It’s hard to seek a cure if one doesn’t know that they are sick.

MIL was confused by that. Also, they had an appt. and the nursing home was not on time and did not have her ready. Now this morning they tested her for CV and we found out they have been testing her twice a week. She has not had CV in all the months we have been hearing of this so called virus. TODAY she tests postive and they did 2 types of tests. Both positive and they are shipping her to another nursing home with some other “positives” where a bunch of sick people are for a week or two. Very weird. 2nd jab in 9 days. I feel sooo bad for her and she has to be separated from her family.

    And such a true revolution would have no need of attention-hounds like A. Jones, et al – to arbitrarily confuse the message of Patriotism.

    I am getting so weary if I.W. in their not accomplishing anything but distractive talk, and more “talk”. It is P.A.Y.-triots like these who do more harm to any citizen-led revolts than anything else.

    This entire scheme was a huge set-up and distraction, nothing more! Things will only get much worse in the U.S. of A. – until the People quit looking elsewhere for their “heroes”, and instead – look themselves in the mirror and actually BECOME those Heroes!

    This is a “We The People” thing, or a not at all – anything.

    I’ve listened to, watched, and read from I.W. for years (about twenty-three, actually) – and heard the repeated herald: “We’re beating the globalists” so many times, that I can still hear the voice behind the chant – YET – just look where our precious Nation is today: An absolute WRECKAGE!

    For all those millions upon millions these PAY-triots have made for themselves (Jones: “The Truth sells“) – and yet – WHERE were they when many innocent, decent Patriotic Americans were imprisoned on PHONY convictions of PHONY charges, and were fighting just to survive? ? ? WHERE were these PAY-triots, for the family of Lavoy Finicum – when he was MURDERED by federal agents – for only being an organizer of a farming and ranching co-op who were trying to find legal ways of protecting their ways of life (and feeding our Nation)? ? ? WHERE were these PAY-triots, when the Bundy ranching family were being targeted for hostility and threats by this corrupt “government system”? ? ? (I know for FACT that A.J. was NOT at the Jarbridge effort either! A few friends of mine WERE – and THEY did not see any I.W.-coverage there!)

    This nation is going down in flames and brimstone, on account of so many “followers” in the crowd, but not enough smart and wise leaders from the “crowd”!


    It’s survival mode for those of us who have already long been targeted.

    “We” tried to warn America, but very few listened. Now, Ye reap all that Ye hath sown, that includes noxious weeds and all!

    Oh and before I forget this point:

    Funny how some of the West’s most power-hungry sociopathic “rulers” are criping about TWIT’s and other Big-Socials’ pursuit of censorship, instead of THEM! REALLY? ? ? – Germany’s Angela Merkel said a mouthful: “It’s GOVERNMENT’s job to determine the extent of individual rights – NOT ‘big-tech’.” – Like REALLY? ? ?

    When Dr. Ron Paul said, in the film by the late, great, Aaron Russo, “America: Freedom To Fascism”* (excellent!) that around NINETY PERCENT (or more?) of the American government was ILLEGAL, under the Constitution, it really made me think of how much oversight and control of our personal lives and responsibilities WE NEED, in relation to HOW MUCH WE HAVE. If “decentralization” of FEDGOV (state, county, and local ‘govs’, too) was achieved, our ACTUAL freedom(s) would make those that our Founders envisioned seem like a ‘pipe dream.’

    Dr. Paul also said, regarding the existence of the I.R.S. (etc.), “…they have all the guns, and (unstated, but implied, >THROUGH OUR FEAR OF ‘THEIR’ GUNS, OR IMPRISONMENT BY ‘THEM’>so many<>already know<< of Jon's writings, or have at least heard his name, I'm planning on making some bumper stickers, or bumper 'strips,' as some call them, that will also help to point some attention to this site.

    It's such a simple task, even ("Stop your thinking, and follow me!" -Benito Mussolini) Joe "Sleepy" Biden could do it (ha, maybe). With some textile paint (or chemical-resistant permanent markers), some stencils, and (light-colored, like white or beige) kitchen shelf 'refinishing' plastic film, one can make a decent, semi-permanent sticker (use some 'stickum-away' to remove it, if necessary). I'd bet a product like the famous 'bendo-fill' liquid (or spray) stuff might work for your design, as an option.


    As an aside, it does seem really weird that with the amount of true information that's available, so few are able to get a clue, and various discouraging thoughts end up being the result.

    As one method to ensure my continued sanity, when I'm feeling 'down,' I just go to the rifle and pistol range, where I envision 'blue helmets,' or similar 'objects,' as the targets. Very soon after that minor 'exercise in imagination,' my day, AND MY SHOOTING, VASTLY IMPROVE.

    This comparing by Jon is core, can’t debate the difference. Alongside that seems something else to consider is the psycho drama part of it, though at base as I think of all this it’s shame that in all these years not enough people have woke up or tried to close any govt here. I mean by whatever methods such as people’s initiative petition law in states that have that, initiative stating we don’t want govt anymore so disband yourselves. If it worked we could take back our utilities that were handed to corporations, and do other things. Or maybe there would be some sort of in between so we became more free and more real life, instead of the fake normal people have gone along with, and now a ‘new’ worse fake normal. The federal thing, the constitution is a dead paper, but govts continue riding on it, claiming as their power, while scribbling away the amendments that claimed rights of regular people, which though, if people the last century or ten years bothered to speak for their rights (some of us did, most didn’t), could have enforced them. But, here we are. In any case got away from my original point, so back to that I think this false flag thing was psych drama so those who call themselves govt and dictate we wear masks continue to do what they do and people snivel for them instead of see them as not effective for our freedom. Also anyone else notice how trump talked 2k for regular people in stimulus but it wasn’t done, then this next one was supposed to be separate for ‘the people’ and only tied to one thing, but now going to be tied to trillions more for corporations and probably more bogus ‘arts’, so is like holding ransom the 2k to the masses who lost jobs and business as some sort of bait to go along with more trillions. Also there has been state stuff where some doctors and dentists are paid off to not be open yet collect big money. It seems bogus to pay off some people while starving others telling us to not work and to wear masks.

    Should probably say that in a way if there was no stimulus or unemployment pay that might make people wake up faster, and govt and corporate types know that so string out then do at last minute to keep their plans going. One thing is for sure, mega corportations and govt are in bed together. We should turn on the lights so everyone sees they are rolling around together between the sheets. Or put a box of mites and roaches in their bed. Or both. Apologize this a bit long just had few thoughts stored up. In any case appreciate article, double standards seem everywhere.

    People in my area have no idea that shampoos that grow your hair fast (obviously without any sulfates, parabens or DEA) are even a thing. We now may experience longer hair and experience more options. Definitely worth reading.

    Generally, you should try to stay away from hair products and treatments that contain chemicals such as parabens, DEA and sulfates.

    What’s beneficial for your hair is healthy for your skin as well.
