Their “free trade” treaties are NOT free trade

June 26, 2016

Free trade helps the poor AND the rich, because it increases the “supplier space”, and this increases the competition, and that decreases the prices for the supplies for poor and rich alike.

All these “free trade” laws are not that at all. They are crony protection agreements. The evidence is in the numbers of pages. Free trade requires one simple declaration:

“All tariffs will be abolished in trade between the parties to this agreement. Period. FULL STOP.”

All those such treaties signed in the past few decades, NAFTA, TPP, GATT/WTO, they are all treaties that establish governing institutions with enforcement. This means they are steps toward the world government infrastructure the plutocrats and oligarchs have been planning for in lo, many years before.

How to hack an election

April 2, 2016
http://www.bloomberg.com/features/2016-how-to-hack-an-election/ IT mentions they "caught" this guy after he went on TV to expose the fact that the FARC did not slow down at all in their kidnappings, killings and atrocities at all while negotiating in Cuba with the Santos government. He says he thinks somebody at the TV station "turned him in". That means there is a FARC mole there, and in my opinion maybe a CIA mole. I was shocked when Santos reopened negotiations with the FARC. Uribe had them on the run, they were on their way to oblivion. Hundreds of their foot soldiers and officers were quitting the fight, deserting their commanders, and turning themselves in for the rehabilitation program of the government. Some high level guys were caught. Uribe exposed the money trail when his troops raided a FARC camp just barely on the Ecuador side of the border. They were using this camp for safe-zone operations and to hold their kidnap captives and for planning. Columbia got evidence from their computers they had there that proved that leftist strongman Rafael Correa was passing money to them. Santos could not have made it to the presidency without lying to Uribe and fellow party leaders. Uribe hated the FARC. These Communists band had killed his father, and they killed his son during the campaign. Just like Maduro said in Honduras when enemies killed his son during that campaign, Uribe said they only made him more determined to push back at them: the gangs, the violent drug lords.

A side note: The two brutal professional-level attacks on Karol Cabrera in Honduras by a bunch of bad guys each time. One attack resulted in the murder of a reporter colleague sitting next to her in the vehicle, and the other one in the murder of her daughter.

She was maybe the most effective voice and writer exposing Zelaya’s dirty tricks, his plans, his massive theft of treasury funds and international aid funds (including one to go directly to the poor).

This shows that they know the importance of independent media. Centers of independent thought are not tolerable to the Orwellian regimes and plans for them.

We'll see how it all ends up..

FBI exposed

March 29, 2016

So now the FBI discovered, supposedly, that it could get the data from the suspect iPhone without the help of Apple.

It is only pure coincidence, right, that they did this just a couple days after Snowden publicly ridiculed the idea that they needed Apple in the first place!?

First thing I thought of was that it was theater, a show, because the NSA has been caught collecting exactly that kind of information from all phone calls everywhere in the first place.

Ha. Rushbo did his own little rush to the mike to say that it proved the NSA does not do such collection and does not have the information. Why would he make such an idiotic statement? It’s not because he’s an idiot.

So this little piece of theater that had the FBI and Apple doing a little tango for all to see is an attempt to give the government cover to pretend it doesn’t monitor everything. It’s cover for Apple so they can show they protect their users’ encryption. None of the Old Guard Media is asking how many of those special warrants have been served on Apple.

You know, those warrants where the FBI agent writing the warrant executes it, along with the warning that it’s a criminal offense to tell anybody about it. He doesn’t need a judge after the Patriot Act era now, remember….

Immediately AFTER the Tribulation of those days

March 26, 2016

From a Christian that still believes in a pre-tribulation rapture:

[“pre-tribber”:] God is not a wife beater!


[my response] Tell that to the 100s of 1000s of witnesses who shed blood in the first centuries, or the tens of millions of victims of Satan’s Communist regimes of the 20th century and this one.

[pre-tribber:] My response: Sure, I tell them when I get to heaven and see them. And they’ll agree with me because in all of that bloodshed of the martyrs, it was man who persecuted them with his wrath. Not God. But in the time of Jacob’s trouble (the Biblical term for the 7 year period) it is God who pours out His wrath on men. Just read Revelation. It is Jesus who is breaking the seals, summoning the trumpets, and pouring the vials. The spotless and pure body of Christ cannot be beat up by God. So, yeah, God is not a wife beater. Even the martyrs would say, “Amen!”


You’re the one who protested that God is not a wife beater as if he would not allow his children to suffer persecution in this life. Since when has he saved his people from all natural disasters, or even all the consequences of the natural disasters that we call “acts of God”?

I never said the saints would be the target of the Tribulation, but Jesus indeed did say (Mat. 24)

That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.-Matthew 5:45

God saved Noah and his family through the time of the Flood, not from the Flood.

Saints of God since the beginning of time have suffered cancer, floods, drought, accidents, falls, drowning of boats and ships, plagues, freezing, attacks by beasts, anything you can name for sure. I’ve known some saints myself who are with the Lord after such experiences.

AND GOD’S WORD PROMISES THAT THE SAINTS WILL SUFFER UNDER THE ANTICRHIST REIGN:

And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.–Revelation 13:7

I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them;-Daniel 7:21

And after Jesus gave the signs of the end, and spoke of the Tribulation in Matthew 24, he went on to Matthew 24:33, where he said in this PRIVATE class to his DISCIPLES ONLY (See verse 1)

So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.-Matt 24:33

When YE shall see ALL these things…

And then he warns against false prophets. In my view that includes Cyrus Scofield, the Bible perversions of Darby, and who hated the Bible and preferred the “better” interpretations. It includes many filthy lucre covetous televangelists, it includes the Vatican usurper and their own Virgin vision-seers. And the Word does warn that in the last days there will be those who protest in the end that they cast out devils, and healed in the Lord’s name and He never knew them.

Jesus said “By their fruits ye shall know them”. The Pharisees were oh so holy and rebuked Jesus and the disciples for violating the minor points of the law and their own traditions. They strain at gnats and swallow camels.

I suggest you follow Jesus’ admonition in Luke 9:50 “And Jesus said unto him, Forbid him not: for he that is not against us is for us.” Which was the Lord’s response to verse 49 “And John answered and said, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name; and we forbad him, because he followeth not with us.”

“He shall be saved out of it” (Jer 30:7) is not enough to say it is a gathering together and catching up in the clouds, especially since that would contradict the promises that the saints will be on the earth during the Antichrist rule and his persecution and that he will overcome them. It rains on the just and on the unjust just like it rained 40 days and nights upon the Ark, while Noah and family were protected from the Flood, “saved out of it”.

And now a specific number of days that refers to the three and a half years of the Tribulation after the Beast breaks the “holy covenant” in Daniel 9:27.

“And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.+ – Daniel 7:25

Open Source

December 31, 2015

Open source is the inevitable future for coding and software. It is one of the most important characteristics of the changes that society will undergo as a result of the Internet, which itself was borne of “public-domaining” of its technology.

In fact, Open Source is the sharp point of the advance of deeper changes. The angel said in Daniel 12 of the Bible that “knowledge shall be increased”. The printing press made it possible to publish scathing criticism of kings, who promptly clamped down on this new danger to society (sic) by requiring a “copyright”, or right to copy, a book.

With the computer age came electronic copying, and with the Internet came electronic sharing. With computers also came “hacking” by those with the aptitude. The copy-left movement sparked when MIT hackers saw their code escape hidden from them into the clutches of copyright by people who had nothing to do with creating it.

Companies are getting tired of budgets bloated by the arbitrary residuals and the captivity of proprietary fences. Even creators of web sites by the most well-known original Microsoft dot-net experts are abandoning all the insane licensing. Microsoft itself has acknowledged the inevitable.

Oracle has the tightest of proprietary technology it seems and the worst of fees and peripheral charges. Not for nothing Larry Ellison offered to “donate” their software for a national database of all Americans for free. (They make $150 per hour for hiring out their consultants.)

Open source has spilled over into other contexts too. There is now the “Creative Commons” licensing. The rebellion against fiat monopoly grants by a central committee is spreading without a shot being fired.

https://wiki.creativecommons.org/images/6/62/Creativecommons-informational-flyer_eng.pdf

The effects will cascade further still, and is already. IBM has shared its Power-8 technology for the core hardware of its bread-and-butter systems with a group of giants. Google is building out a huge data center based on it, in combination with other open technologies.

Big corporations might even be able at this point to get a general ledger item total of the cost of patents, copyrights, and licensing. It distracts from other revenue streams. One can even argue that patents are just copyrights as well, since they must be legally described in explicit language.

The line between “fair use” of copyrighted material is so artificial, so arbitrary, that the laws and rules could NEVER be so clear as to avoid a future of never-ending litigation. The situation is so bad that there are thousands, maybe tens of thousands, of patent applications, every year, whose sole purpose is to take something rather evident, or even obvious, to protect its applicants from lawsuits.

The thing will come crashing down. Even the great Isaac Newton said he only “built upon the shoulders of giants” who came before him.

Just as when social pressures obligated kings to give up the censorship over works of literature that copyright laws were meant to enforce, and “pseudo-democratize” it by granting monopolies to creators, and just as the printing press itself created a new environment for sharing ideas new and old, stories new and old, the ease of electronic sharing will eventually overcome the resistance of today’s versions of mercantilism and feudalism.

In any case, we can now unmask the truth that the riches that flow from “intellectual property” royalties usually do not go to the actual creators, but to their employers. Only a few of those who become the most famous eventually get out from under their binding contracts, or have the talent to make hay from them. The Microsoft company structure does nothing but pay the coders, same as for Oracle, HP, and all the licensing producers of proprietary software. Given a good chance to make a living without having to give away their smarts to the boss, most of the good coders, writers, artists, musicians would stampede toward freedom.

Maybe they already are. The natural state of man is not to become a mindless controlled drone. We are individuals, all of us humans, and each of us, the way our Creator made us.

Who should “rule”? “Judges” (arbitrators) by reputation

November 26, 2015

Before King Saul in the Bible, the Hebrews were “ruled” by judges who proved to show the fruits of the Spirit and by reputation were known to be fair.  Sometimes it was one of the priests, but the majority according to the history were just anybody who led armies of farmers against oppressors and then were sought out by others to adjudicate disputes.

When the elders of the land demanded that Samuel select a king for them, they said it was because his sons were corrupt. Samuel warned them that a king would extort abusive taxes, would take their sons off to war, and he would take their daughters to prepare his delicacies.

As Samuel warned them, and God told Samuel, so it went. (#1) The kings of Israel were more corrupt and much worse than any “judges” they had before, (#2) there was much more unnecessary war than ever before, and (#3) they now took a constant source of cooks, attendants and helpers from the descendants of the ones who coveted a king. (1 Samuel 8)

There is no hereditary “divine right” of kings, nor is there any “divine right” of the majority to “elect” a king for a season. God wants to rule his people directly, and he wants all people to be his (“not willing that any should perish but all should come to repentance), with guidance from the most godly of neighbors.

How to tell which ones are the “most godly”. Matthew 7:20 is almost a magic formula, and it works for discernment in almost any area of society.

And what are these “fruits”, whereby “..by their fruits ye shall know them”? The fruits of the spirit:

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,–Galatians 5:22

Ben Carson, Gun Control and the Holocaust

October 10, 2015

The CNN interviewer asked Ben Carson about gun control:

“But just to clarify, if there had been no gun control laws in Europe at that time, would 6 million Jews have been slaughtered?”

Liberty Upward mentions his book: “In Carson’s new book “A Perfect Union,” Carson writes that “through a combination of removing guns and disseminating propaganda, the Nazis were able to carry out their evil intentions with relatively little resistance.” (From Liberty Upward )

What a gotcha question, so they could set him up for Holocaust industry for potshots.

Did Carson remember to mention the Warsaw uprising? That’s where the Jews in that ghetto held off the Nazis for days in a full-scale battle?

He could have mentioned that the first gun control proposal in the U.S. Congress after WW2 was modeled almost word for word on the Nazi gun control laws.

Jesus had his disciples carry weapons for self-defense in the Garden of Gethsemane where he knew he would be betrayed.

In another lesson for Christians, though, he was not a warmonger. He had already refused his attempted coronation after the miracle of the loaves and fishes, when he also told us why some people vote for their favorite candidate: not because you saw a miracle, he told them, but “because your bellies were full.” He had also declared that the greatest in God’s kingdom (already “within you”) would be the least among us and a servant to the rest, in a role reversal.

 

 

Yanni Rosenthal arrested for money laundering; (Was he Zelaya’s smuggler in 2009?)

October 9, 2015

Yanni Rosenthal has been arrested in Las Vegas for money laundering. I wrote about this guy back in 2009, when he was not the center of attention, except for those of us who followed very closely the events that followed (and preceded) the COURT-ordered arrest of Manuel Zelaya. That order, by the way, was decided by the court and the request came from the “fiscal general” of his own government. That’s the equivalent of the Attorney General in the U.S.

https://trutherator.wordpress.com/2009/10/11/rosenthal-zelayas-man-in-honduras/

Most of my readers probably don’t follow news from Latin America very much. In fact, the national controlled media are reporting much less international news than they did in times past. And what they do report goes through some steroid-enhanced filtering — in essence, censoring, because it is quasi-voluntary statism. Remember the obvious implicit threats that were thrown like darts at the Orlando television station where the Biden was subjected to the humiliation of trying to wiggle through the question asking how Obama wanting to “spreading the wealth around” is not a Marxist vision?

Well, that was domestic but there are also some truths that are inconvenient for statist authoritarians that want to tell us what to think, what to buy, where to buy, and what they will allow us to keep after they confiscate our wherewithal. One truth is Chile’s advance into developed-nation status as a prosperous nation after they threw Allende’s Marxism into the deep blue sea and gave a warm embrace to the freedom for poor and rich alike to do business as they saw fit. The free market made way for each citizen to do business as he wished with whomever wanted to do business with him, for mutual benefit.

Well, Chile isn’t 100% free, but certainly all of us should realize that free markets were the one factor that gets the credit.

Yes, the information czars don’t talk much about that.

They sure did in 2009 when they condemned Honduras for defending its freedom and its constitution against Chavez-Soros sock puppet Manuel Zelaya.

That year, after a very clownish showcase “attempt” to enter Honduras from Nicaragua and getting stopped, Zelaya was successfully smuggled into the country and into the Brazilian Embassy.

The word was among people that it was Rosenthal who smuggled Zelaya back into the country.

It sort of backfired, because Brazil made clear that Zelaya had to leave the embassy immediately upon the inauguration of the next president. Lobo made a show of escorting him to the airport in fact. That was part of the agreement negotiated in Costa Rica, under international pressure.

During Zelaya’s apparently unwelcome presence in Brazil’s embassy, there were visits by a few members of the Congress of Brazil. Due to the politically compliant international media spin, they were astonished at the way Brazilian expats were adamant and enthusiastic in their support for the arrest of Zelaya.

Anyway, I don’t know what happened with the arrest by American authorities of Rosenthal. It is well known in Honduras that Zelaya did business with drug traffickers.

In any case, everything is recorded in the heavenlies. What a man sews he shall also reap. This is a Biblical law and just as sure as gravity.

Coup at the Vatican?

October 9, 2015

Word is the system they have set up for exchanging payments among banks had cut off the Vatican a few weeks before Pope Benedict announced his resignation.Visitors to the various museums inside the Vatican could not make payments with their credit cards, they had to pay with cash. A major hit on their daily receipts no doubt.

About two hours or so after he announced his retirement, transactions were restored.

A really, really, brief history of secession

October 9, 2015

The purpose of the War between the States was to kill the idea of secession. Slavery was secondary. Lincoln once supported an amendment to enshrine slavery if it would “save the Union”. It was not the war to free the slaves but to enslave the free.

Lincoln ordered at least one escaped slave returned to his master in UNION state Missouri. The Emancipation Proclamation ONLY applied to the SOUTHERN states, NOT MISSOURI or Maryland, Delaware or Kentucky. To this day Mississippi folks consider Kentucky as “North”.

The thirteen colonies of the Continental Congress committed the sin of secession from England,

England committed the sin of seceding from Rome.

Kosovo committed the sin of seceding from Serbia, supported by Clinton’s bombs.

Southern Sudan committed the sin of secession from Sudan.

A dozen members of the USSR seceded from the USSR.

Ukraine seceded from USSR and Crimea seceded from Ukraine.

Pakistan and India seceded from each other.

Israel seceded from the British Palestinian Mandate, and the Palestinians seceded from Israel.

Honduras, Guatemala, El Salvador, Nicaragua and Costa Rica seceded from Spain, led by Francisco Morazan. Indian Chief Lempira is a national anti-imperialist hero in Honduras.

Haiti seceded from France, then invaded the rest of Hispaniola, then the Dominican Republic seceded from Haiti.

Bernardo O’Higgins liberated (won secession for) Chile from Spain.

Angola seceded from Portugal.

Zimbabwe seceded from the British Empire. (Maybe because they’re racist? Some dead white folks probably think so now)

Botswana seceded from South Africa. (Because Botswana must belong to racist white slave-owners maybe, following the logic of radical anti-secessionists in the U.S.)

Curacao seceded from Netherlands.

Surinam seceded from Netherlands.

The Lutherans seceded from Rome.

The Salvation Army seceded from the Methodists.

The Pilgrims seceded from Europe.

Texas seceded from Mexico.

All of Europe seceded from the Roman Empire.

St. Louis seceded from St. Louis County.

Hialeah, in Florida, wants to secede from Miami-Dade County.

The totality of the former Soviet Socialist Republics of the USSR seceded from the Soviet Union, then they seceded (mostly) from socialist dictatorship.

Cuba and the Philippines seceded from Spain. In fact, almost the entire continent of Latin America seceded from the Spanish Empire.

Panama seceded from Columbia.

Taiwan seceded from Communist China.

Most of us would be happy if California seceded from the USA. And took Hollywood with them.
