Syria, and Why Your Patriotism is Misguided*

Syria, and Why Your Patriotism is Misguided*

By Arjun Walia

“Allow the President to invade a neighbouring nation whenever he shall deem it necessary to repel an invasion, and you allow him to do so whenever he may choose to say he deems it necessary for such purpose, and you allow him to make war at pleasure.” – Abraham Lincoln


When it comes to Syria and what’s currently taking place there, it’s important to remember that tragedies like this one have been taking place for a very long time. Here in the West, the masses are constantly glued to their television screens, taking in information about the conflict. As a result, their perception of these events is being moulded into their minds. It’s no different from Iraq, or the current accusations of nuclear activity that we’re now hearing about in Iran and North Korea. It might sound a little crazy, but given the fact that only a handful of corporations control everything we read, see, and watch when it comes to major international affairs, like war, it’s easy to see how public opinion gets shaped. And it’s even more evident given the fact that a number of insiders, military personnel of all ranks, and politicians have been blowing the whistle when it comes to war, and what’s really going on.

How often do we step aside and question what we’re actually hearing?

How often do we examine it for ourselves and use our own critical thinking skills instead of blindly believing what we’re told on mainstream media news outlets?

“I served in all commissioned ranks from a second Lieutenant to a Major General. And during that time, I spent most of my time being a high-class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street, and for the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer for capitalism.”  – General Smedley Butler, one of the highest ranking generals in American History

The birth of multiple major social media platforms brought with it the rise of alternative news, or rather, news that isn’t represented within the mainstream. It became so popular, amassing billions of hits every year, that the elite was forced to retaliate by labelling most of it as “fake news.” This sparked outrage among many, like Dr. Ron Paul, the three-time presidential candidate who stuck up for alternative media news networks and published his version of a ‘fake news’ list. On it, he named dozens of journalists that belonged to mainstream media networks. The Wikileaks release of documents showing a close relationship between these networks and major politicians, like Hillary Clinton, as well as the big banks, was also a big giveaway.

Additionally, multiple mainstream media journalists and news anchors have come out publicly stating that mainstream media is constantly receiving funds from big corporations and governments, as well as creating fake news stories to serve national interests. The CIA’s “Operation Mockingbird” was designed to do this decades ago (infiltrate media and sway public opinion), and it seems that it still continues to this day.

So, what’s really going on when it comes to war? Well, based on our research and the research of many others, it’s simply big business, a global take-over agenda to establish a powerful group of people’s vision of what the world should look like. They call this the New World Order, and a lot of evidence shows that our intervention into other countries’ affairs is facilitating this vision.

The Quotes

I’ve shared many of these before, but given everything that’s going on, I feel they’re important to share over and over again, especially for the new readers who are just waking up to these facts.

“Most terrorists are false flag terrorists, or are created by our own security services. In the United States, every single terrorist incident we have had has been a false flag, or has been an informant pushed on by the FBI. In fact, we now have citizens taking out restraining orders against FBI informants that are trying to incite terrorism. We’ve become a lunatic asylum.” – David Steele, the second-highest ranking civilian in the U.S. Marine Corps Intelligence and a former CIA clandestine services officer (source)

“SCADs [which refers to State Crimes Against Democracy] involve high-level government officials, often in combination with private interests, that engage in covert activities for political advantages and power.” – Professor Lance deHaven-Smith, Professor Emeritus of Public Administration and Policy, Florida State University (source)(source)

“It is ironic that the U.S. would begin a devastating war, allegedly in search of weapons of mass destruction, when the most worrisome developments in this field are occurring in your own backyard. It is ironic that the U.S. should be fighting monstrously expensive wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, allegedly to bring democracy to those countries, when it itself can no longer claim to be called a democracy, when trillions, and I mean thousands of billions of dollars have been spent on projects about which both the Congress and the Commander in Chief have been kept deliberately in the dark.”  – Paul Hellyer, former Canadian Minister of Defence

“The truth is, there is no Islamic army or terrorist group called Al Qaida. And any informed intelligence officer knows this. But there is a propaganda campaign to make the public believe in the presence of an identified entity representing the ‘devil’ only in order to drive the ‘TV watcher’ to accept a unified international leadership for a war against terrorism. The country behind this propaganda is the U.S. and the lobbyists for the U.S. war on terrorism are only interested in making money.” – Pierre-Henri Bunel, a French artillery and intelligence officer who became publicly known after having leaked sensitive NATO documents during the Kosovo war, for which he served a jail sentence in 2001-2002 (source)

“About ten days after 9/11 I went through the Pentagon, I saw secretary Rumsfeld and Deputy Secretary Wolfowitz. I went downstairs just to say hello to some of the people on the Joint Staff who used to work for me and one of the generals called me in and said, ‘Sir you gotta come in and talk to me for a second.’ And I said, ‘You’re too busy,’ and he says, ‘No no,’ he says, ‘We’ve made the decision, we’re going to war with Iraq.’ This was on or about the 20th of September. I said, ‘We’re going to war with Iraq, why?’ He said, ‘I don’t know.’ He said, ‘I guess they don’t know what else to do.’ So, I said, ‘Well, did they find some information connecting Saddam to Al-Qaeda?’ He says, ‘No no, there’s nothing new that way, they just made the decision to go to war with Iraq.’ He said ‘I guess it’s, like, we don’t know what to do about terrorists but, we got a good military and we can take down governments.’ . . . . So I came back to see him a few weeks later and by that time we were bombing in Afghanistan and I said, “Are we still going to war Iraq?’ And he said, ‘Oh it’s worse than that,’ he said, he reached over to his desk and picked up a piece of paper and said, ‘I just got this down from upstairs,’ meaning Secretary of Defences Office today, and he said, ‘This is a memo that describes how we’re going to take out seven countries in five years, starting with Iraq and then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and finishing off, Iran.’ ” – Four Star General Wesley Clark, who was the Supreme Allied Commander of Europe of NATO from 1997-2000 (source)

“So that Operation Gladio turned into a different operation, the same Modus Operandi, of creating false flag events, synthetically created terror units, um as Islamic fanatic units, that would create these terror events, thus the chaos associated with it, thus the justification for NATO/CIA/US military intervention in Middle East today but with the goal of having more of these events taking us further in- into the previously Russian territories.” – Sibel Edmonds, a former FBI Agent and a well-known whistleblower. You can watch an interview with her discussing this topic here. (source) 

“Eleven months before 9/11 happened there was going to be an event and out of that event we were going to invade Afghanistan to run pipelines through the Caspian sea, we were going to invade Iraq to take over the oil fields and establish a base in the Middle East, and we’d go after Chavez in Venezuela.”……and that there would be an “Endless war on terror where there’s no real enemy and the whole thing is a giant hoax,” so that “the government could take over the American people,” – Aaron Russo, political activist  (source)

The two-war strategy is just a marketing device to justify a high [military] budget. ”  –  Retired Air Force Chief of Staff Merrill McPeak (source)

Disruption of the Ninth Circle Cult’s Sacrificial Rituals in April*

Disruption of the Ninth Circle Cult’s Sacrificial Rituals in April*

Last Sunday night, special ITCCS teams assisted by police and citizen volunteers successfully stopped the Catholic Ninth Circle sacrificial killings in Zwolle Holland, Dijon France, and Lucerne Switzerland. In six other cities in Europe, similar killings were either cancelled or moved to other locations because of the threat of disruption.

The Common Law Sheriff’s Office of the ITCCS, which helped to coordinate these actions, has issued an internal report which we quote in part:

“With the help of local sympathetic police our teams went into action in the designated locations commencing 22:30 hours GMT on 30 April. As we anticipated, our best successes occurred in the locations that had not been publicly announced, where we surprised the cult members as they prepared for the ritual killings.

In Zwolle, Dijon and Lucerne we arrested a total of nineteen individuals and released eight children from captivity. All of the latter were under the age of five or six and were slated for torture and killing; they included five boys and three girls. The cult members we apprehended were turned over to local police after being questioned and their statements were recorded by our teams. (Note: See our separate report on these statements and accompanying evidence retrieved at the sites)

In Rome, London, Paris, Frankfurt, Brussels and Geneva our actions were blunted by the presence of armed paramilitary units at the cult locations. Considering the proximity of these locations to the leaders of the Ninth Circle this was anticipated. Nevertheless we have learned that the planned killings at these major sites were in fact postponed or relocated to elsewhere, possibly because of the public announcement of these locations.

Unfortunately, in Washington DC our team was unable to intervene and we must assume the cult performed their killings. Several of our team members there were arrested by plain clothed officials and are still being held in communicado. We have yet to receive a report from the teams that were to strike at the cult centers in Tara Ireland and in Vancouver and Montreal Canada.

In general our actions were a definite blow to the Ninth Circle and to the confidence of its members. Of great satisfaction to us was the increased cooperation of elements of the local police who assisted us in detaining the cult members. We can say with certainty that the tide is turning.”

Of equal importance to these actions has been a back channel communication that was received yesterday by the ITCCS Central Office from a party claiming to represent an element within the Catholic Curia in Rome (the College of Cardinals). This party has requested an immediate meeting with ITCCS officials.

The Vatican-run Ninth Circle cult has been forced once more onto the defensive, and lives of the innocent have been saved. Divisions are clearly appearing within the Vatican hierarchy and we suspect more revelations soon, especially as politicians in the European Union are beginning to debate the Ninth Circle atrocities.

To all people of good will and to all our affiliates we ask you to not forget that despite this victory the Ninth Circle killings will continue, and our efforts must therefore never slacken. We welcome the flood of new volunteers into our ranks and urge them to undergo our common law Sheriff training programs to equip them to stop once and for all the torture and killing of our children, and those responsible.

More announcements are forthcoming. Please share and post this widely.

Int’l Banking Whistleblower Reveals High Level Paedophilia and “Child Sacrifices”*

Int’l Banking Whistleblower Reveals High Level Paedophilia and “Child Sacrifices”*

By Christina Sarich

Ronald Bernard didn’t always have a conscience. He says,

“I was training to become a psychopath and I failed.”

He credits himself with helping to crash the Italian economy and bankrupting companies with his skills, as well as owning controlling shares in over 299 of the world’s largest companies, but that is just the beginning of his story.

He admits that at one point in his life he would deal with drug-lords, and Satanists just as easily as any “regular Joe” that might be one of his clients as a high-level banking executive and business man. He says that laundering money for political and social upheaval as well as drug pushing, international arms sales, and even human trafficking was the norm for him.

Bernard didn’t finally have what he calls a “breaking point” until he was asked to sacrifice children in Satanic rituals by some of the elite individuals who were above him in the Illuminati.

Having suffered a difficult childhood himself, and finding himself unable to participate in the unspeakable acts he was asked to perform, he finally started to refuse assignments in his banking job and decided to go public with what he knows about the banking industry.

In the following video he reveals that the banking elites are tied to every form of horror that we currently face in the world today – the least of which is usury and fractional banking which makes us all slaves to an elite class of 1-percenters who worship Satan.

Bernard says this is not a metaphorical Satan which these people worship, but a real one. His testimony is difficult to hear, but imperative to listen to in a time when paedophilia and human trafficking is being exposed at every turn.

To wit, Aleister Crowley (who once proclaimed himself to be the Great Beast 666)  once joined a secret society called Ordo Templi Orientis who created a system of sex magick rituals designed to help practitioners open themselves up to communion with demons. Part of the ritual system includes worship of a being known as Baphomet, otherwise known as Lucifer. Sex by individuals such as Crowley is deemed one of the most powerful forces of supernatural, and “magikal” power in the Universe. He and his cohorts took Hindu and Tantric practices and bastardized them into an excuse to perform highly deviant sexual acts.

People should understand that those who participate in paedophilia and other deviant sexual acts seek the power of God. Crowley and those who worship Lucifer, or Baphomet, or Satan – whatever name you want to give him –  understand that sexual energy has incredible power. It can be used for good or evil – such as to create a beautiful child, or a new flower in nature, or to twist natural order, and promote further evil.

The two different uses of this power are described in the Left Hand and Right Hand paths of ancient esoteric Tantra. You can think of them also as “white magic” used for good, and “black magic” used for evil.

The Left Hand path was considered extremely deviant and extreme, and described in the Vamachara. The Right Hand path is more in line with cultural sexual norms, and is defined as Vamacara. Both have been greatly changed from their original intent, which was to bring about enlightenment.

The Left Hand path supposes that even the most abject of human desires is normal” and should be given the freedom to be expressed, without considering the harm that this might do to others, nor the reason those supposed “desires” were formed to begin with (i.e., that they may have been created artificially through coercion, abuse, mind-kontrol, ego-annihilation, etc.) There are mounds of studies showing that children who live through sexual abuse are more likely to have a desire for aggressive sexual relationships, and other such otherwise unlikely phenomenon.

Moreover, scientific analysis has demonstrated that paedophiles who admit having an erotic interest in children significantly more often claim that they had been sexually abused as children than paedophiles who do not admit having such feelings.

When Bernard’s testimony is compared to that of the retired FBI head, Ted Gunderson, it is clear that we need to expose this issue to its very roots, in order to stop it.

Bernard says that the elites began to fear him because they could no longer blackmail him. It seems these deviant sexual acts are used frequently as a way to enforce control on notable people in politically visible positions of power – yet they do not hold the power, the Satanists do, until they have been fully revealed.

The elites’ power only remains in their ability to brainwash and control. Once they are exposed for creating a circular-model of fear-based, self-mutilation, and perpetual abuse, they will be brought to justice by the True Goodness of the Universe which allows all free will.

Pacific Islands Just Banned Western Junk Food to Promote Health*

Pacific Islands Just Banned Western Junk Food to Promote Health*

By Christina Sarich

Local tourist hot spots in some South Pacific Islands will no longer serve pizza, hot dogs, hamburgers, and sugary sweets in plastic wrap – typical Western junk food – to encourage healthier eating habits among people who live there. The government hopes that banning junk food will also sway people to support local farmers and stop feeding the coffers of American junk food companies.

Torba in Vanuata (spread out over about 13 islands) has a population of about 10,000 people, many of whom are farmers, but tourist spots have been providing both locals and tourists in the area convenience foods instead of the fruits and vegetables that are grown locally. Obesity rates in the Pacific Islands have been sky-rocketing as well, causing an additional financial burden.

To combat this effect, tourist bungalows and city meetings alike will now serve fresh limes and coconuts, seafood, and other local, healthy delicacies.

“We want to ban all other junk food from this province,” Luke Dini, a city council’s chairman said.

The province only gets about a 1,000 tourists a year, mostly Europeans, but the current food choices are ruining local health. Vanuata is also only one area in the Pacific that is affected. There are about 10 million people throughout the Pacific, and the rates of diabetes and obesity are becoming absurd. The area simply can’t afford dialysis machines, and other treatments for the growing epidemic.

“Imagine if 75 million Americans had diabetes — that’s the scale of the epidemic we’re talking about in Vanuatu,” commented Roger Magnusson, a professor of health law and governance at Sydney Law School in Australia.

Experts say that the rising obesity rates in the Pacific Islands are primarily due to a shift away from the culture’s typical diet of root crops, toward sugary high-calorie foods instead.  This has happened in almost every culture that shifts toward the Standard American Diet. Even in planes where people often live past 100, the newer generations – who consume a diet more like Americans – are dying younger, and getting sick sooner.

It has happened to Native Americans, tribes throughout Central and South America, and almost everywhere in the world where people started eating “Unhappy Meals” instead of their local cuisine.

The people of the Pacific traditionally eat:

  • Root vegetables and tubers, such as taro (also known as a cocoyam), sweet potatoes, and yams – all incredibly healthy and full of fiber, vitamins and minerals.
  • Coconuts – an incredible super food
  • Citrus fruits – a great source of Vitamin C and other vitamins
  • Seafood – a source of Omega 3s and other nutrients
  • Seaweed – another super food known to prevent cancer, and regulate the thyroid
  • A range of leafy greens – important for the many phytonutrients they contain, as well as fiber to help you feel full

Let’s hope that the new junk food ban will help people return to a non-Westernized diet, and regain their health.

A careful analysis of the ‘self-government’ rhetoric reveals that beneath the glitter are difficult compromises and dangerous assumptions

By Peter d’Errico

Duane Champagne recently pointed out that policies of “self-government” promoted by the U.N. Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples “are amazingly close…to Spanish colonial policies.” Champagne described how the U.N. and the Spanish policies both postulate the assimilation of Native Peoples into state government systems. Both conceptualize indigenous local governments as ordinary municipal governments subject to nation-state laws and control.

Champagne’s analysis echoes what Vine Deloria Jr., and Clifford Lytle wrote in 1984 (The Nations Within: The Past and Future of American Indian Sovereignty), where they discussed the 1975 U.S. Indian Self-Determination and Education Act:

“In an overall sense, self-determination policy puts tribal councils on the same footing as state and municipal governments with regard to acquiring federal funds, thus undermining the unique treaty-based position of Native Americans.”

Deloria, never one to mince words, said U.S. programs pushing Native Peoples into a municipal government model were “clothed ironically not as termination but in the new language of self-determination.” He added, “Federal bureaucrats began to speak in hushed tones about the ‘government-to-government relationship.’”

The rhetoric of “self-government” requires careful analysis. The surface looks appealing, since it seems to support what Native peoples are demanding; but beneath the glittering surface lurk difficult and dangerous assumptions and institutional forces. In the Spanish case, “self-government” policy presumed Native peoples would abandon their indigenous modes of life and adopt Christian modes—including modes of land ownership and political leadership. In the United States, federal “government-to-government” programs presume that Native peoples will subordinate themselves to settler-state extractive economic programs and land laws based on Christian Discovery claims.

A danger common to discussion of Indigenous Peoples rights arises from the use of “human rights” and “civil rights” concepts developed around issues of gender and race equality. Those concepts are suitable for understanding individual social and political relations—people’s rights—but are inadequate to understand a peoples’ rights—the rights of societies vis-à-vis other societies. The significance of the “s” and where to put the apostrophe explains the fiercely fought debate in the United Nations about the name of the Declaration. Some member states—led by the U.S.—insisted there are Indigenous people, but no Indigenous Peoples, and therefore the system of individual “human rights” and “civil rights” was sufficient, with no need for a category of “collective rights” for Peoples.

The U.S. lost the battle to prevent the articulation of Indigenous Peoples’ rights in the U.N., but the struggle continues. For example, since 1989, the Organization of American States (OAS) has been discussing its own proposed Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, involving the same debates as in the United Nations. By 2011, the OAS members had reached consensus on a range of issues, and had identified several matters where “difficulties” remained.

At the top of the OAS “difficult” list stood the question whether “Indigenous Peoples have collective rights that are indispensable for their existence, well-being, and integral development as peoples.” This question included whether Indigenous Peoples have the right “to administer and control their lands, territories, and natural resources,” and whether “indigenous law and legal systems shall be recognized and respected by the national, regional and international legal systems.”

In 2016, the OAS presented its 12th draft of the Declaration for discussion in Washington, D.C. This version included an affirmation of Indigenous Peoples’ collective rights, including to their “lands, territories, and resources.” However, the draft states that such indigenous land rights are held “in accordance with the legal system of each State and the relevant international instruments [unspecified]. The states shall establish the special regimes appropriate for such recognition, and for their effective demarcation or titling.” In other words, beneath the glittering appeal of “collective rights” in the OAS Declaration lurks the continuing insistence on state power to establish “special regimes” governing indigenous rights.

True to form, the United States delegation to the OAS asserted that “the U.S. remains committed to… collaborating on issues of land rights and self-governance,” eliding the difference between “collaboration” and “consent.” To emphasize its point, the U.S. delegation added that it has “persistently expressed objections to the text of this American Declaration.” In closing, the U.S. tried to reapply the glitter, stating that it “reiterates its solidarity with the concerns expressed by Indigenous Peoples concerning their lack of full and effective participation in these negotiations.” In short, while undercutting indigenous self-determination, the U.S. backed indigenous participation in negotiations controlled by states. To play with words, we might call the U.S. statement a call for self-termination or self-subordination.

Canada’s delegation struck a somewhat different note, but to the same end: It declared that Canada would consult with “our Indigenous Peoples.” Whose peoples?

The Columbia delegation started with heavy glitter—”enthusiastic in welcoming the fact that the Declaration has been adopted at long last—a very important step forward for Indigenous Peoples of the Americas”; and then proceeded to refuse to agree to “free, prior and informed consent” by Indigenous Peoples “before adopting and implementing legislative or administrative measures that may affect them,” or “prior to the approval of any project affecting their lands or territories and other resources, particularly in connection with the development, utilization or exploitation of mineral, water or other resources.” Columbia also refused to agree that “military activities shall not take place in the lands or territories of Indigenous Peoples.”

In other words, the international status of Indigenous Peoples—or, to put it another way, whether and to what extent Indigenous Peoples have international status—remains an ongoing debate, despite glittering high-level Declarations.

Resources exist to assist Indigenous Peoples’ advocates in understanding the nature of the debate. For example, The Center for World Indigenous Studies issued its critique of the OAS document, calling it “regressive in relation to the UN Declaration.” And TONATIERRA, an Indigenous Peoples community empowerment movement engaged with the Original Nations of Abya Yala, mounted similar critiques, highlighting especially the need to shift the overall discourse from civil rights and human rights to “Indigenous Rights and the Rights of Mother Earth.”

Nahuacalli, an Embassy of Indigenous Peoples in support of “Community Ecology and Self Determination,” offers radical Indigenous Declarations challenging the good faith and intentions of settler state declarations. For example, the 2000 Declaration of Teotihuacan offers “principles of Community Spirituality and the inalienable right to Self Determination as Original Peoples of the Continent…in this present era of economic globalization driven by the great capital interests of transnational corporations and the so called industrialized nations, which threatens our very existence daily, … to protect the sacred rights of our Nations and Pueblos for the future generations.”

From these indigenous perspectives, state and corporate invasions of Native lands—as in Standing Rock by the Dakota Access Pipeline—represent an “ongoing colonization and usurpation of the geopolitical rights of the Original Nations,” at the hands of forces operating under a doctrine of the “Divine Right of States.” Yet again, these perspectives warn us to look beneath the glitter of documents and policies that seem to support indigenous self-determination, to see whether such documents and polices are nothing more than “the emperor’s new clothes.”

Big Oil Now Has Authority to Arrest Citizens Who Protest a Pipeline on Their Own Property*

Big Oil Now Has Authority to Arrest Citizens Who Protest a Pipeline on Their Own Property*

By Claire Bernish

If you’re a resident of Huntingdon County unfortunate enough to have your property in the path of Sunoco’s Mariner East 2 pipeline, you can forget to protest — unless arrest and jail time aren’t an issue for you.

Common Pleas Court Judge George Zanic signed a rare and factious “writ of possession” order last week in favour of Sunoco, which had sought an “emergency measure” to thwart landowners protesting pipeline construction by occupying trees — on their own property.

In short, protesting encroachment of this pipeline on one’s own property will earn an arrest.

“We’re seriously looking at going to jail,” Elyse Gerhart told NPR.

“I’m not the type of person who lets injustice go unchallenged, and neither is my mother. What we’re doing makes [Sunoco] show their true face.”

NPR’s StateImpact Pennsylvania reports,

“Ellen and Stephen Gerhart in Huntingdon, Pa., along with their daughter Elyse, have become outspoken critics of the pipeline and the use of eminent domain by the company to take possession of land along the 350-mile route.

“Charges against Ellen Gerhart were dropped after she was arrested last year for trespass on her own property. But with this new writ, Sunoco can enlist law enforcement to arrest anyone within the easement, including the actual property owners.”

Sunoco, in no uncertain terms, has garnered the full weight of support via force of the U.S. government against the interests of citizens who have done literally nothing else wrong but have their properties awkwardly situated where Big Oil wants its pipeline to run.

Elyse Gerhart took to the trees in early February with an unknown number of others facing similarly offensive corporate actions, after the unironically monikered Department of Environmental Protection granted permits for Sunoco to begin construction of Mariner East 2.

As the Gerharts’ attempt to stave off the corporo-government’s eminent domain seizure of private property winds its way through courts, Judge Zanic’s order effectively quashes any remnants of effective protest the landowners had at their disposal — rendering moot their objections in favor of Sunoco’s plans to complete its pipeline until court proceedings play out.

Sunoco Logistics, it is imperative to note, completed a long-anticipated merger with Energy Transfer Partners — of Dakota Access Pipeline notoriety — just two days ago.

Given the extreme measures ETP employed against the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and supporting Indigenous and non-Native water protectors from around the globe — who were camped in opposition to DAPL for months near the banks of the Missouri River’s Lake Oahe reservoir — the move to usurp law-abiding civilians’ private property hardly comes as a shock.

Indeed, the pompousness of corporate theft of property under the already-contentious governmental program known as eminent domain seems par for the course for Big Oil — particularly now that industry darling, Donald Trump, occupies the White House.

Occupying treetops on their own properties has already led to the sort of disputatious confrontations, albeit on a smaller scale, which brought international scorn to the Dakota Access Pipeline Project. Although charges were ultimately dropped, authorities arrested Ellen Gerhart last year — for trespassing on her own property.

Attorney Rich Raiders is representing the Gerhart family in its challenge of eminent domain, and noted the court’s use of ‘writ of possession’ is “very rare and very unusual.”

A writ of possession technically allows authorities to seize control of everything you own — giving you and everyone in your household limited time to vacate the premises.

Twenty-seven acres of forests and wetlands comprise the Gerharts property in Huntingdon County, and the family has thus far stood resolute in refusing to voluntarily grant an easement and its 50-foot wide right-of-way with an additional 25-foot staging area for the Mariner East line.

In their appeal to the Commonwealth Court, the family argues, in part, Sunoco’s planned liquid natural gas pipeline — “which would carry ethane, propane, and butane from the Marcellus Shale to an export terminal in Delaware County” — is not in the public interest.

A common defense against eminent domain, any company arguing for seizure and use of private property normally bears the brunt of proving necessity and public interest — Sunoco, in this instance, claims Mariner East 2 would deliver needed heating oil to parts of Pennsylvania. Mariner East 1, the Gerharts and their attorney rebuff, already supplies what is needed — the second line is redundant and unnecessary.

In an email response to that claim, Sunoco spokesman Jeff Shields asserted the writ of possession holds to the confines of the law, telling StateImpact,

“We are proceeding with construction in Huntingdon County and elsewhere and will conduct ourselves according to the law at all times.”

As with Energy Transfer Partners’ horrendous steamrolling of Native American rights concerning the justifiably maligned Dakota Access Pipeline, that black-and-white simplistic view of Big Oil’s manifest rights hardly comes as a shock — though it might make right attitude has won no favour with landowners who otherwise couldn’t care less about the exploits of the industry.

This writ of possession and its granting authority to arrest property owners on their own land should they not permit notoriously faulty oil and gas infrastructure to impede in their lives proves yet again the government’s subservience to the corporate industry over the rights of people supposedly governed.

No matter Sunoco’s and ETP’s brazen claims to superiority over individual property rights, the argument legality supersedes inalienable rights will never tacitly equate a moral high ground.

And as Big Oil finds new impunity to run roughshod where it sees fit, that legality does not equal morality has never been more clear.

German domination of Europe: Marine Le Pen Savages Merkel, to Her Face in E.U. Parliament

From Alexandra Bruce

I don’t agree with the entirety of Marine Le Pen’s party platform, but I really do get a kick out of her oratorial bombast and watching her kick Angela Merkel’s butt – and those of the unelected E.U. technocrats who are on the U.S. State Department’s “unofficial

Here, she blasts how the E.U. maintains itself “With blackmail, threats and intimidation…Your model is to become a servant of the USA, austerity, disloyal competition, mass spying on citizens, ‘social dumping’, migratory submersion.

“I represent another model that unites Europe’s people. One of independence, of a Europe of nations in a multipolar world, of intelligent protectionism, of individual liberties… some will call me the ‘Anti-Merkel’. I accept that label with honour. I don’t acknowledge you, Madam Merkel!

“The ‘right of self-determination’, is a ridiculous attempt at the German domination of Europe. The defense of German interests does not justify the vassalization of the other peoples of Europe. I am the voice of sovereign Europeans. They thirst for the  freedom of their nations. I represent the French people, who have turned their backs on you, Mr. Hollande, the same way they turned their backs on Sarkozy because they thirst for a France that’s free!”
