But America has ceased to exist,” says Doug Casey in this fascinating interview with Reason TV’s Nick Gillespie.

Hell........everyone here knows that......only an idiot doesn't get it by now

Lots of folks still don't get it.

That's why we need to talk to our friends and neighbors... sympathetically.

Tried to convince the Pastor, Elders, and Deacons that a "contingency plan" might be a good idea in case things didn't proceed as thry "normally" do. That didn't get much traction.

America is a 200 year experiment that is now failing.

Failing, is a matter of perspective, some are smiling and patting each other on the back for a job well done.

I know *exactly* how you feel. I'm "that weirdo" permabear who always craps on about the end of the world. I see coworkers roll their eyes as soon as I open my mouth. We shall see.

Technically speaking, that would make you an anti-Semite, rather than a generic "terrorist".

If you lined up and shot every jew on the planet most of the conspirators would get away. 

In case you don't understand, there are multiple factions in this game.  Otherwise it would have been over long ago.  Instead they have to contend with each other as they position themselves for the takeover.  They use each other and cooperate when it is beneficial but they'll turn on each other when it is beneficial.  Even within factions there are smaller factions and ambitious individuals who will eat each others hearts out when the time is right.

One group does have a lot of jewish names in it but hardly every jewish name and hardly all the names are jewish.  It's like the mafia.  You have a bunch of guidos whacking and stealing.  Does that mean all Italians are out to whack and steal?  Don't like that example?  How about Irish mafia?  Russian?  Chinese?  Japanese?  Anglo-saxon biker gangs?  I will stop now.

No, you're a terrorist if you bring them to justice.

This election cycle requires more mayhem to establish a suitable amoutn of panic and desperation.

A place to (experiment) with new religions (i.e. Mormons, Witnesses), new type of government, culture, drive thru's...a new type of control.


Then with the help of the controlled MSM and tv and new technologies - broadcast to other nations how 'cool we are,' then those easily manipulated people point and say, I wanna be cool like these American guys...and then themselves being to self destruct physically, mentally and spiritually...


<Waves> Yeah, were pretty fuckin cool now. (dry sarc voice)

Canada is not failing and is not much different.  Getting rid (de commissioning) of bankers, cronyism and predatory businessmen whose reputation precedes is all that would be required.

What he needs is a witness, an ally, a second voice.  The sheep follow a strong horse.  One voice in a crowd is not a strong horse.  Get 1-on-1 and convince just that one person.  Then two-on-1 to get three....

I hate to break the news to you, but all those people, like most churches, have signed away your church to the federal government using the 501c exemption.  For the most part the churches do not even remember the sabbath, which is Saturday, in case you are wondering.

Ghordius's picture

Pumkin, Christians switched the Christian "Sabbath" to Sunday during Roman Imperial times. before the schisms. just saying

Tall Tom's picture

Roman Catholics switched the Sabbath to Sunday and most Protestant Churches followed that lead. God did not switch the Sabbath at all.


Be careful of preaching that Seventh Day Adventism here.


They may label you a terrist like that David Koresh over thar in WACO and burn up your women and save them from being "molested"? (What a crock of crap.) 


Better they be dead than...than...than molested.

Kirk2NCC1701's picture

The point that you missed, is that (a) there IS a 7th day, and (b) that the guys who changed the Sabbath (day of rest) to Sunday, can claim to have better connections to speak for "God"* than you do. 

* Whether a real or imaginary entity.

After all, what you call the Bible, is an artifact produced by... [drumroll] Catholics.  Or to be more precise, by the Council of Nicaea that Emperor Constantine put together.  The stuff that they did not see "fit to print" was chucked out and burned.  As were most of its contrarian adherents.  So be careful, before you get all "high & might" about "The Bible" as your source of all "Truth".  I know, archeological reality and historic truth can be a real bitch when it doesn't fit one's agenda or personal beliefs.

America is still here however; the United States ceased to exist when the 17th Amendment was passed and took the away the power of the States to appoint Senators and keep the federal government in check and gave it to moneyed interests that can buy elections.

America is still here...

Lots of good people are still here, but I wouldn't give you a rat's ass for the guv or big corps. They are not "America," they are the neo-fascist USA.

Keyser's picture

Unfortunately we have given them all the power... The recent actions of TPTB only proves they don't give a ratz ass about public opinion, they are in control and they know it... Anyone that steps out of line gets smeared or nail gunned...

Well the Brazilians got hammered by Germany but I have to have some sympathy for the Brazilians even though they are over running parts of America like the rest of the world.

Brazil wasted tens of billions to get the World Cup which is just another crony scam like The Olympics.

Anyway - the fans were so pissed because Germany was shelling them that they started a chant for their female leftist marxist president:

In a move similar to what happened during the World Cup opening ceremony, Brazilians seated at the stadium started to chant “Hey, Dilma, go get ****ed in the ***!” at about the 40th minute. The chants lasted for about three minutes.


Makes me respect the Brazilians a lot more.

spot on CH1. spot on. America cannot become America again unless the uneducated become educated and de-propagandized.

federal reserve, a supreme court that expanded the commerce clause beyond any legitimate scope, and open borders engineered by the usual suspects in the mid 60s set it up nicely for coming off the gold standard, reliance on the petrodollar/reserve status, requiring hyperinterventionism....

Excessive power of banks and megacorporations on government, and a revolving door between them, the emergence of career politicians and think tankers who embed themselves between administrations, the "Deep State" disproportionately staffed and influenced and led by right wing, Zionist Jews, and what amounts to a Zionist Occupation Government - Israel Firster Jews and their Ziopath useful idiot Scoffield Christians....


This is gonna get better before it gets worse.

So right about the Scofield Christians.

"Zionism" (a POLITICAL ideology of a group of Rabbis in the 1800s) is now pervasive in many branches of Christianity and throught American culture.

America? What the fuck is an America?

nmewn's picture

You and me Doc.

A lot of people think its Vichy DC, its not.

TheFourthStooge-ing's picture

The Vichy DC regime claims to be America, just as the original Vichy regime claimed to be France.

Occupational governments tend to be diarrhoeic with that sort of cheap propaganda.

nmewn's picture


You can see it here at the Hedge or anywhere else you look. A claim to something is not the same as a right to something. Its only a claim.

I could claim the words "Vichy DC" as my own but everyone here knows the right to claim it belongs to you.

Its just the way it works, as it should ;-)

TheFourthStooge-ing's picture

I'd be glad if it became so common a descriptor that nobody remembered where or when they first heard it. If it prompts a few curious people to look up Vichy and then perhaps see things in a different light, that's even better.

As Bill Hicks would say, I'm just trying to plant seeds. Maybe one day they'll take root.

that the United States is the future New Israel of Biblical prophecy.

There would be no United States without Freemason George Washington et al.

Lost Word's picture

The earliest Freemasons were Christians who believed in the United States as the promised land.

Somewhere along the way, the Freemasons lost that idea, and began betraying the United States.

Keyser's picture

The US took a wrong turn right after WWII... The MIC took control and created the shadow government to cover their actions and perpetuate their existence... This group is suppressing technology that would free the world from energy needs, but refuse to release it and no way to force them into disclosure...

And just like OT Israel, the Assyrians (Chinese) and the Babylonians (Russians) will have their way with us since we have become rather wicked and need a good slap down.

Obviously all you skeptics have little historical knowledge

of the difference between Israel and Judah, and the similarities of

Puritans, Pilgrims, Rosicrucians, Freemasonry, British-Israelism, and Mormonism,

who began in small numbers, but now in some forms such as Mormonism, number in millions.
