The Dissident Dad – No TV for You!

I am all about freedom of choice, with one exception: I am the TV Nazi in my house.
According to a 2013 report from Nickelodeon to its advertisers, children today are watching 35 hours of television a week! That’s like a full-time job. Heck, if TV watching was a job, these kids would qualify for Obamacare and a 401k employer match.
My first born didn’t watch TV for the first two years of his life. Today, he watches about 3 hours a week. The kids have access to the one TV in our home, for 1 movie a week with their grandpa, and two cartoons geared towards education, such as Leap Frog, Super Why, or a nature documentary. In addition to that, we probably watch about 30 minutes of YouTube videos, either educational videos or pranks in any given week. Sorry, but we just love watching a good prank – especially the Scary Snowman.
I’ve actively denied them TV and will continue to do so. As an anarchist-libertarian dad, I want to encourage freedom, the ability to think for yourself, and to help my kids pursue their passions. Nevertheless, I wouldn’t allow an elderly person with Alzheimer’s to enter a busy street alone, or a friend who is brain damaged to get behind the wheel of a car. As a father, I have to step in when it comes to my children and television.
As mentioned earlier, most kids today are watching 35 hours of TV per week, and according to Nickelodeon, this is in addition to 10 hours of content on smartphones/tablets! Sadly, 80% of the children in the study said they wanted to spend more time with their parents.

Globalism and the push for mandatory universal vaccination

‘Once you really understand the truth behind the lies in a given arena, then you can finally back up far enough and see the actual reasons for the lies. You can see the secret program the lies are protecting. You can see why the program is being pushed. You can see what most people would rather not see.’ (The Underground, Jon Rappoport)
In many previous articles, I have established a number of facts about vaccines.
They are not safe. They are not effective. They were not responsible for the major decline in so-called contagious diseases.
In most if not all cases, the diseases they are supposed to prevent affect only a tiny fraction of the people claimed to be at risk.
In some instances, (e.g., seasonal flu, Swine Flu, SARS), the ‘outbreaks’ have virtually nothing to do with the viruses touted as the cause of illness. Therefore, even if vaccines were safe and effective, they would have no relevant effect, because they are targeting viruses which are not causing illness.
The rabid claim that unvaccinated children pose a threat to vaccinated children is, on its face, a lunatic self-contradiction, since those who are vaccinated are supposed to be protected.
Having established these points, it’s possible to assess the real reasons for the push to vaccinate every human on the face of the Earth.
Among these reasons, you will recognize the controlling hand of elite Globalists, for whom planetary empire is the goal.

China’s Plan to Lead the Globe

As tensions in the South China Sea between the US and China continue to rise, the US Navy and Air Force are quietly gearing up to fight a war in the disputed region.
If necessary, that is. Both sides say they don’t want any military confrontation on China’s extensive coastal waters, but both are acting as if a military conflict is increasingly likely.
Optimists say that a peaceful resolution of China’s rise as a great power is achievable. The economies of the two powers are so enmeshed that a war sounds unthinkable.
Such is the thesis of an important new book just out, ‘The China Dream,’ by Professor General Liu Mingfu, a leading Chinese military thinker and commentator who speaks with the voice of China’s military.
US-China trade accounted for $579 billion last year. Beijing holds $1.2 trillion of US Treasury securities, thus financing a big part of America’s massive trade deficit. China claims its low-cost exports to the US saved American consumers $600 billion in recent years.
China only wants its place in the sun, say its strategists, using the same words as German strategists did before World War I. It’s time for a multi-polar world. The age of American world empire is over, writes Liu Mingfu, words that will not endear him to Republican hawks and neoconservatives.
Pessimists retort that Britain and Germany fought two world wars even though they were major trading partner. History is replete with examples of rising powers eventually going to war with the status quo powers resisting their rival’s economic and military growth. The Franco-British-Russian alliance against Germany prior to World War I is a perfect example.

7 Key Events That Are Going To Happen By The End Of September

Is something really big about to happen? For months, people have been pointing to the second half of this year for various reasons. For some, the major concern is Jade Helm and the unprecedented movement of military vehicles and equipment that we have been witnessing all over the nation. For others, the upcoming fourth blood moon and the end of the Shemitah cycle are extremely significant events. Yet others are most concerned about political developments in Washington D. C. and at the United Nations. To me, it does seem rather remarkable that we are seeing such a confluence of economic, political and spiritual events coming together during the second half of 2015. So is all of this leading up to something? Is our world about to change in a fundamental way? Only time will tell. The following are 7 key events that are going to happen by the end of September…
Late June/Early July – It is expected that this is when the U. S. Supreme Court will reveal their gay marriage decision. Most believe that the court will rule that gay marriage is a constitutional right in all 50 states. There are some that believe that this will be a major turning point for our nation.
July 15th to September 15th – A ‘realistic military training exercise’ known as ‘Jade Helm’ will be conducted by the U. S. Army. More than 1,000 members of the U. S. military will take part in this exercise. The list of states slated to be involved in these drills includes Texas, Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, Utah, California, Mississippi and Florida.
July 28th – On May 28th, Reuters reported that countries in the European Union were being given a two month deadline to enact ‘bail-in’ legislation. Any nation that does not have ‘bail-in’ legislation in place by that time will face legal actionfrom the European Commission. So why is the European Union in such a rush to get this done? Are the top dogs in the EU anticipating that another great financial crisis is about to erupt?
September 13th – This is Elul 29 on the Biblical calendar – the last day of the Shemitah year. Many are concerned about this date because we have seen giant stock market crashes on the last day of the previous two Shemitah cycles.
On September 17th, 2001 (which was Elul 29 on the Biblical calendar), we witnessed the greatest one day stock market crash in U. S. history up until that time. The Dow plummeted 684 points, and it was a record that held for exactly seven years until the end of the next Shemitah cycle.

The Biggest Crooks in America Are Now the Cops

The TSA Is a Complete Waste of Time
Today, we continue our series ‘The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.’ As you’ll recall, our premise is that in a world where everyone is a lawbreaker, it’s hard to spot the real criminals.
Below, we turn to the bad …
Last week came a report proving that the TSA has been wasting our time and shamelessly bullying us all for years. There was always a surreal and even cruel quality to airport security checks.
We recall how we stood in line, as the TSA agents forced a frail, old lady, well into her 90s, to get up from her wheelchair… painfully shuffle into the body scanner… stand with her hands over her head… and totter out the other side.
She could barely stand… but the scan proved inconclusive. We looked on in disbelief as the TSA agent forced her to repeat the exercise. Did anyone believe the frail woman posed a threat to airline safety? The TSA agents? The people lined up, waiting to go through the same routine? Of course not…
But no one objected – not even her son, your editor. We have all been trained to keep our mouths shut, even when we are subjected to senseless inconveniences and indignities. To what end?
A study done by the TSA found travelers were easily able to smuggle mock weapons and fake explosives past the screeners. In 67 out of 70 cases, TSA agents missed the banned items and let the passenger go by. If they had been real terrorists, Washington might be a smoking ruin by now. Two questions arise: Why bother? And why haven’t there been more terrorist attacks?

Man Drowns in Police Custody, Cop Who Speaks out Is Demoted

On May 31, 2014, 20-year-old Brandon Ellingson was stopped by a Missouri Highway Patrol officer for suspicion of boating while intoxicated.
The events that followed Brandon’s arrest are shocking, horrible, and tragic.
Ellingson was taken into custody by Trooper Anthony Piercy while boating on The Lake of the Ozarks after the officer claimed to see a beer can fly off of the young man’s boat.
Piercy ended up arresting Ellingson. He cuffed the college student’s hands behind his back and placed an ill-fitting life vest on him.
The wrong kind of life vest. Piercy used a Type III vest on Ellingson. But that kind of vest has armholes and cannot be properly secured on someone who is already handcuffed. Type I jackets go around a person’s head, so even if they are handcuffed their head will float to the surface of the water. Type I life vests are the kind which troopers are trained to use on handcuffed subjects.
They were available on Piercy’s boat.
One was just feet from where Ellingson was seated during field sobriety tests.
But Piercy was ‘in a hurry,’ as he explained during a phone call to Sgt. Randy Henry after the incident. That was his excuse for using the wrong life vest, placing Ellingson in the boat improperly, and driving the boat recklessly when heading back to the station.
Piercy’s profound lack of competence and disregard for proper procedure cost Ellingson his life. The young man fell overboard and drowned.
A series of lies and cover-ups followed, naturally.
And, to date, no one has been held accountable for Ellingson’s death.
The Kansas City Star published an update on May 29, 2015. Here’s an excerpt.

Empty Headed Americans Sign Petition to Nuke Russia

When I examine the country I live in, and the government I live under, I’m often faced with some troubling questions. Chief among them is a question that every intelligent citizen must ask themselves at some point. Is there is a large segment of our population that will literally accept and promote anything? In other words, is there any government policy that Americans won’t get behind?
No. No there isn’t.
So long as an idea is worded correctly and vaguely explained with confidence, millions of people will give it their support. If you don’t believe me, you should watch any of Mark Dice’s Petition Videos. If you have even the slightest trace of intelligence in your brain, you will be shocked and horrified at the kinds of ideas that ordinary Americans will sign up for.

Secret Trade Deal Bad for US, More Troops to Iraq, Obama Care In Trouble?

The following video was published by Greg Hunter on Jun 11, 2015
Congressman Paul Ryan says ‘We the People’ do not get to know the secret details until Congress votes them through. On the trade packages in Asia and Europe, Ryan said, ‘It’s declassified and made public once it’s agreed to.’ Is this his Republican version of the Nancy Pelosi ‘We have to vote for it to see what’s in it’? You know it’s a bad deal for everyday Americans when this sort of trade deal is opposed by Democrats such as Senator Elizabeth Warren and Republican Congressmen Duncan Hunter. Hunter even wrote Ryan a letter asking him not to vote on the deal until all Americans know what’s in the agreements. In other words, NO SECREAT TRADE DEALS.
Looks like the President is going to send another 450 troops to train Iraqis to fight ISIS. Listen, the Obama Administration is not serious. Months ago, a top military expert said in order to kick ISIS out of Iraq, there would need to be 80,000 well trained troops. 450 is drop in the bucket.
In the here-we go-again file, here is a headline that reads ‘Job Openings Jump to Record.’ I called economist John Williams, and his first comment was ‘nonsense.’ Williams told me they count each new job opening multiple times. He also says that when you drill down, the majority of jobs are part-time or 29 hour a week jobs. Thank you Obama care.
Speaking of Obama Care, it is looking like the Supreme Court is going to rule against the Obama Administration on subsidies for more than 30 states. People were only supposed to get them if they set up an exchange, and 34 states did NOT set up an exchange. This could end Obama Care, or at least severely limit it.

U.S. Government Mobilizing Forces In Ukraine For The Next Offensive – Episode 691

The following video was published by X22Report on Jun 11, 2015
Greece is asking for an extension but talks broke down and the IMF walked out. S&P downgrades Greece in fears of a default. As stores go out of business and more people are laid off, automakers are again channel stuffing to increase retail sales. Homeland security secretly video taping to predict crime in airports. Ukraine building up forces and the US is releasing the first group of trained soldiers. US and Kiev are now mobilizing forces moving military assets and preparing for a major offensive. US opening another base and additional hubs to combat the IS. The IS is such a great threat to the middle east and to the world the US cannot come up with a strategy to defeat them, why? The IS was created and is funded by the US to cause chaos in the middle east which will allow them to split up the middle east and to remove Assad.

Where ISIS Fighters (Allegedly) Come From

A Map of ISIS Recruitment
Via ‘Amazing Maps’ on Twitter comes the following info-graphic that purports to show the origin of foreign ISIS recruits (i.e., recruits that are not from Syria and Iraq). There are obvious problems with such statistics, such as the one mentioned by one commenter on Twitter, namely ‘do they all have to register when they leave their respective countries?’.
Nevertheless, we thought the estimates interesting, if only on a relative basis. In several cases the estimates strike us as likely far too low, such as the numbers attributed to assorted Gulf sheikdoms. Qatar, Bahrain and the UAE are very small, but just 15 fighters from each? We recall that there even exists an ISIS propaganda video that shows recruits from precisely these places burning their passports.

Paul Ryan Channels Pelosi on the TPP – You Have to Pass Obamatrade to See What’s in Obamatrade

Chief Obamatrade proponent House Ways and Means Committee chairman Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) admitted during Congressional testimony on Wednesday evening that despite tons of claims from him and other Obamatrade supporters to the contrary, the process is highly secretive.
He also made a gaffe in his House Rules Committee testimony on par with former Speaker Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA)’s push to pass Obamacare, in which she said infamously said: ‘we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it.’
‘It’s declassified and made public once it’s agreed to,’ Ryan said of Obamatrade in Rules Committee testimony on Wednesday during questioning from Rep. Michael Burgess (R-TX).
What Ryan is technically referring to is that TPP will become public if TPA is agreed to – but Congress will lose much of its ability to have oversight over and influence on the process, since TPP is, in many respects, already negotiated. It’s 800 pages long, and on fast-track, Congress will only get an up-or-down vote and won’t be able to offer amendments. The Senate vote threshold also drops down to a simple majority rather than normally having a 60-vote threshold, or in the case of treaties, a 67-vote threshold.

How Obama Will Centrally-Plan Your Neighborhood: Here Comes The “Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing” Rule

Because centrally-planning the market and the double seasonally-adjusted economy was not enough, the Obama administration is now set to create a wealth-adjusted community utopia. According to The Hill, the administration is moving forward with regulations designed to help diversify America’s wealthier neighborhoods, such as building affordable housing in more affluent areas.
The official title of Obama’s latest proposal to have the government centrally-plan your community: TheAffirmatively Furthering Fair Housing rule, a name that only the person who penned the US Freedom Act could have come up with.
The underlying motive: “unfair” segregation sprinkled with a hint of latent racist guilt. ”

SP 500 and NDX Futures Daily Charts – Res Publica, Res Imperium, Res Corporata

What is happening in Greece is clearly about more than just money. How can they blithely give Ukraine a pass and a free lunch, and Greece the Iron Heel?
I am wondering what will satisfy the Troika, short of tossing out the elected government of Greece and putting a Stellvertretender Reichsprotektor in place to administer their newly taken territories to the south.
Keep an eye on Deutsche Bank and the Ukraine.
I have a bad feeling about this market.

Gazprom Seeks A Way Around Ukraine By 2019

Gazprom has vowed to entirely cut out Ukraine as a transit hub for natural gas exports to Europe.
The conflict with Ukraine has scrambled the longstanding energy relationship between Russia and Europe. The European Union imports around one-third of its natural gas from Russia, but having seen those flows cut off multiple times in the past, European officials are pushing to rid themselves of their dependence on Moscow. The violence in Ukraine solidified that motivation.
Russia is also unhappy with the arrangement. In an effort to separate gas exports to the EU (a critical business relationship that Moscow doesn’t want interrupted) from its ongoing conflict with Kiev (a geostrategic priority), Russia has a great incentive to cut out Ukraine. About half of Russia’s gas exports to Europe must travel through Ukraine.
But that could change within the next four years, if Gazprom gets its way. ‘We will not export gas via Ukraine after 2019. The customers will get gas at (newly) agreed delivery points,’ Gazprom’s Deputy CEO Alexander Medvedev said on June 9.
However, that would require major investments in new infrastructure in order to successfully work around Ukraine. Medvedev is pressing Europe to hurry up and decide on how and where future Russian gas will enter Europe.

11-Year-Old Boy Taken Away by CPS for Being Left in Backyard Alone for 90 Minutes; Parents Charged with Neglect

One afternoon this past April, a Florida mom and dad I’ll call Cindy and Fred could not get home in time to let their 11-year-old son into the house. The boy didn’t have a key, so he played basketball in the yard. He was alone for 90 minutes. A neighbor called the cops, and when the parents arrived – having been delayed by traffic and rain – they were arrested for negligence.
They were put in handcuffs, strip searched, fingerprinted, and held overnight in jail.
It would be a month before their sons – the 11-year-old and his 4-year-old brother – were allowed home again. Only after the eldest spoke up and begged a judge to give him back to his parents did the situation improve.
– From the Reason article: 11-Year-Old Boy Played in His Yard. CPS Took Him, Felony Charge for Parents
If the title to this post sounds familiar, it should. Back in April, I published an extremely troubling piece titled, 11-Year-Old Kansas Boy Taken Away from Mom Due to Her Use of Cannabis Oil to Treat Crohn’s Disease. Here’s an excerpt:

Lies the Government Is Telling You

Last week, Republicans and Democrats in Congress joined President Barack Obama in congratulating themselves for taming the National Security Agency’s voracious appetite for spying. By permitting one section of the Patriot Act to expire and by replacing it with the USA Freedom Act, the federal government is taking credit for taming beasts of its own creation.
In reality, nothing substantial has changed.
Under the Patriot Act, the NSA had access to and possessed digital versions of the content of all telephone conversations, emails and text messages sent between and among all people in America since 2009. Under the USA Freedom Act, it has the same. The USA Freedom Act changes slightly the mechanisms for acquiring this bulk data, but it does not change the amount or nature of the data the NSA acquires.
Under the Patriot Act, the NSA installed its computers in every main switching station of every telecom carrier and Internet service provider in the U. S. It did this by getting Congress to immunize the carriers and providers from liability for permitting the feds to snoop on their customers and by getting the Department of Justice to prosecute the only CEO of a carrier who had the courage to send the feds packing.

The Frightening Third Purpose of Jade Helm

As long-time readers to this website will recall, I have been very consistent with regard to the sequencing of how this nation would be brought to its knees.
A series of false flag events will take place that will lead to massive civil unrest/conflict. Martial law will be imposed as a result of the civil unrest. Martial law will result in the elimination of any meaningful resistance to autocratic control and the installation of the New World Order. In order to achieve planetary unity, with a greatly reduced population, it will be necessary to fight World War III. Jade Helm’s Purpose
A blind man could see that Jade Helm is about (1) the removal of Red Listed political dissidents and, (2) the imposition of martial law and the elimination of all political dissidence. There now appears that Jade Helm has an even more sinister purpose. Jade Helm is also providing cover to the U. S. military so that military assets can be redeployed in preparation to fight World War III.
Walk with me through this progression as the third purpose of Jade Helm is revealed.
