While my gut emotional reaction is to cheer the images of "the people" moltov cocktailing the Government APC and all the rest, once I come down from my rush and realize all thses people are doing is rioting for the "right" to "join" the second most corrupt currency on the planet and MOST corrupt government entity (the EU) on the planet, my excitement is over!

The reason they are rioting in Thailand, Chavezland, and Argentina, is the same as why they are rioting in Ukraine and Bosnia, don't let these propaganda sociopaths in the US and EU tell you otherwise!! The people have lost all of their wealth or most and their toliet paper currency is almost worthless, they can't eat, work, or prosper, and their scared as hell about what they should do about it!  

The answer is NOT the EU or the US, Russia or China, its have a revolution that demands "the people" are paid in something that is going to hold value and protect their wealth, and establish the right to bear arms for all citizens, in order for the average citizen to protect that wealth and value!

2 steps, problems solved, bankers start to commit suicide, rioting stops, people go back to work, economy explodes to the up side, because 75% of economics, is persepction and sense of well being! When you feel safe and secure, you spend and take risks, simple fucking human nature, but these ivy league fuck offs, think there is a PHD needed to explain shit! So enjoy your slavery and servitude, and continue to believe in fairy tales and toilet paper dreams, as we descend into the abyss! i'm sure Yellen will save us all. right??

That is the official media line. A lot of these people want nothing to do with either side, the problem is the competing parties, the duping, and the potential for military violence and continued outside intervention. The transition of a revolutionary organisation is incredibly complex, especially with the force of history pulling the people into multiple corrupt organisations at once.

No.   They have the misguided hope that politicians in the EU would give a shit and  do something to help when Russian tanks roll into Kiev the next time Ukraine decides to say 'Nyet' to Russia.  

They understand the EU sucks balls.   But it's not like they can look to the Kenyan to lead.

We in the US can learn from these people and start the process peacefully this November.  We can help the process along with vigorous prosecution of banker types, maybe prosecutions will up the body count?  And follow through with some impeachments, recall elections, and finally vigorous voting in the 2016 elections.  The icing on the cake will come with cancelling or revoking ALL of the executive orders written in the past 5 years.

Da Ukes seem to be pretty unhappy regardless.  If they want to revolt who's to blame them for taking any assistance they can get?  They want a representative government, not corrupt rulers.  Good for them for taking a stand.  Best wishes.  We should sell them guns to defend their rights with.

Maybe the fault lies with those who criticize the Ukes via the safe distance and anonimity of the internet while continuing to support the system (dollars, taxes, corrupt government that supports the bankers) that they blame the Ukes for dealing with.  Wow that sure did boomerang there.

So we're essentially pouring fresh liquid into a bucket full of holes.

The vast majority of politicians have been bought/paid for by, powerful MNCs, Super PACs, and lobbyists are better represented than the people. Performance of politicians is based on how much money they raise so naturally they're going to go with the likes of Google, JP Morgan, and Goldman Sachs over the average person they're supposed to be representing. Our Supreme Court has also been bought and paid for by the same people, so this renders them completely useless when it comes to defending our rights.

Also when it comes to banker prosecution, do you really expect the DOJ to do their jobs when Jamie Dimon is walking free with only a meager fine when he should be behind bars? Also can we trust the DOJ to conduct and investigation on itself of it's wrongdoing?

No. Our system is completely broken, and participating in it while in it's current form is endorsing and legitimizing this unrepresentative and illegitimate fascist government.

Time to do this in every local gun and badge thug district through out the American country. Hold them responsible for their actions, treason and violations of their oaths.

 

Dear gun and badge thugs,

You will be held responsible for your aggressions against the American people. Article 3, section 3 of the Constitution demands it and Nuremberg Principle IV:

Principle IV states: "The fact that a person acted pursuant to order of his Government or of a superior does not relieve him from responsibility under international law, provided a moral choice was in fact possible to him".

This principle could be paraphrased as follows: "It is not an acceptable excuse to say 'I was just following my superior's orders'".

Sincerely,

Would you send more funds into a country that is blowing up before your very eyes? Putin is between a rock and a hard place. He doesn't want the Ukrainian government to fold and they need Russia's money to stay in power. He also doesn't want to send good money after bad as he is in deep shyte spending over $50 billion on the Olympics. Russia is not as rich as many here would want to believe. Russia has resources but Russia doesn't have a reserve currency. The ruble is sliding and so are all other EM currencies.

2 members of the "punk" band Pussy Riot were detained on the 18th in Sochi. In 2012 two members were arrested for hooliganism and sentenced to 2 years in prison, a third was freed on probation. The two imprisoned were released in 2013 as part of a general amnesty for non-violent offenders but were detained in Sochi and were released in a few hours.

 

The band promotes feminism, gay rights, and thinks Putin is a dictator.

Yes, Russia has that right.  And we Americans have the right to pull-out of these Olympics.  

Regarding your insane rant about what other people do in the privacy of their own homes I cannot say enough bad things about it.

Regarding the Church of the Tooth Fairy Coin Exchange, where does responsibility lie?  One could blame Celebacy as a concept, or one could blame the Church's cult of secrecy, or blame the idea that the ends justify the means philosophy within that institution...but I think that if you are to find the real blame for the child rape scandal then you must look to the foundations of Religion itself.  But blaming the 5-10% of the polulation that are homosexual as the cause of the crimes is just STUPID.

 

Religion asks that you trade REASON for FAITH.  Caveat Emptor, NOZZLE!

see what happens when you take the fluoride outta the drinking water?  The natives start to wake the fuck up and get energized to beat some corrupt ass!

Half of Americans have been so dumbed down, passified, drugged, psychologically manipulated, brainwashed, menaced, threatened, spoiled, and totally pussified that they can't possibly fathom what it would take to fight back against the ciminal, NWO, MUTANTS who have taken over our government and who aim to destroy the country completely.

But one day...I see this shit happening here.  I think it's inevitable.  The MUTANTS are going to cross the line just far enough to try and really bring the hammer down on the people and that's when things are gonig to get REAL, real fast.

They've been planning this shit up for well over a 100 years to take America down from within and they're closer than ever right now...you know they can taste it and they sure as hell aren't just going to stop all on their own, pack shit up and go on home, are they???  Fuck no.  They've spent over 100 years getting ready for this and they want to make this shit finally come true no matter what the cost. 

I think that will be their major mistake though.  They're going to get jumpy and try to pull something off too soon or too obvious and wreckless and that will be our moment to fuck them up once and for all.  They will fuck up bad and totally expose themselves with no where to hide, and that will be the moment when the sleeping giant finally wakes up.  And it's going to be seriously pissed off. 

The MUTANTS think they're in control...and to a large extent they are at the top levels, and so they've gained all the top ground.  But they aren't as strong as they want us to believe they are.  There's no way they can subdue this entire nation and just lock us all in FEMA camps.  Fuck that.

Larry Grathwohl already said that the MUTANTS were planning to have to kill at least 25 million of us back in the 70's if they succeeded in taking America over.  You know those fuckers would now have to kill at least 100 million just to start, and there's no way they could pull that off before we got to every last one of them first and ripped their heads off. 

We're the most heavily armed nation on the planet and more and more sheeple are finally waking the fuck up and getting ready for some battle action against the MUTANTS.

Nearly 100 million Americans own nearly 300 million guns and billions and billions of rounds of ammunition.  And most of us grew up with guns, know how to use them very well, understand some low to very high level of military tactics, are organized or can operate alone, have been preparing for many years, and won't take shit from any fucking MUTANTS once the shit hits the fan. 

Law enforcement and military won't turn against American citizens.  The vast majority are good people and are patriots.  They aren't going to put up with orders from MUTANTS to turn against citizens.  They have families to protect as well.  Yes there will be quite a lot of bad guys, that's for sure...there always are. 

And I have no doubt what-so-ever that foreign troops/Hessian-types, mercenaries, and other evil scum will most definitely join the MUTANTS against us.  But there's no fucking way they could overcome millions upon millions of pissed off and heavily armed Americans for a sustainable amount of time being here on foreign ground.  The odds are heavily stacked against them in the medium and long term of an extended conflict.

But after they're wiped out or have turned tail and run away, that's when it'll be time to start chopping the MUTANTS heads off for their crimes against the Republic.  Most, I'm sure, will have left the country to hide far away.  They'll be hunted down like Nazi's and hung like Saddam Hussein.  I'd prefer firing squads and guillotines for them.

So just keep images like these and of the other civil uprisings that have been occurring around the world over the last 4 years or so in your mind always.  I'm sure scenes like this will eventually be happening in our own towns and cities once the MUTANTS do something stupid to provoke it in a False Flag attack in order to blame it on Veterans, Constitutionalists, Christians, Ron Paul supporters, Libertarians, "preppers", 2nd Amendment supporters, etc. 

I'm 100% confident that nobody labeled as such will be the first ones to pull the trigger...it'll definitely be those acting on behalf of the MUTANTS who will make the first move with a False Flag event/attack of some kind.  After that it's going to be on like Donkey Kong and the treasonous MUTANTS will be shown no mercy because we all have to know they won't be showing us any mercy either. 

So just remember...get prepared mentally, physically, and however else you feel you need in order to be ready for it one of these days.

Because zombies are fake...but MUTANTS are REAL, and they are the enemy of our freedom and the future of America.
