Why Did FBI Treat Foreign Suspects of 9-11 World Trade Center Attacks Far Better Than Jan. 6, 21 Capitol Protestors?

Suspects in the 2001 attack on the World Trade Center Twin Towers were given more consideration and leniency than the patriotic Americans protesting against the stolen 2020 Election at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021.

As of this writing, over 20 months later, about 850 people have been charged with federal crimes for their conduct on Jan. 6. More than 350 of them have pleaded guilty, mostly to misdemeanor offenses, and more than 230 have been sentenced.

Jan 6 Operative?

What are the odds these police officers, involved in the Jan. 6 breech, would soon commit suicide?

🔹Howard Liebengood, January 2021

🔹Jeffrey Smith, January 2021

🔹Kyle DeFreytag, July 10th, 2021

🔹Gunther Hashida, July 29, 2021.

🔹Brian Sicknick, although not officially deemed a suicide, died of “natural causes” on Jan. 7, 2021.

On September 11, 2001 at approximately 8:45 a.m., a hijacked American Airlines passenger jet crashed into the north tower of the World Trade Center. A second plane crashed into the second  tower around its 60th floor about 18 minutes later.

As chaos ensued and explosions erupted in Lower Manhattan, a third plane circled around Washington,  D.C., before it reportedly sliced into the west side of the Pentagon at 9:45 am.

A fourth plane, believed to be headed for the White House or the Capitol, never made it to its destination due to the bravery of the passengers aboard the United Airlines Flight 93 who fought back against the hijackers as the plane crashed into an empty field empty in southwestern Pennsylvania.

On that day, nearly 3,000 people from 93 different nations were killed as a direct result of those attacks:

🔹roughly 2,753 in New York

🔹184 at the Pentagon

🔹40 on UA Flight 93.

Thousands more were injured at Ground Zero, but as the country memorializes the day many years later, the death toll continues to rise each year from sickness and injuries obtained in the aftermath. Also,  343 FDNY firefighters were killed and over 200 have since died due to related illnesses or injuries.

Instantly, numerous complaints were received by the FBI in Newark regarding individuals who had been observed celebrating following the initial crash of an aircraft into the Twin Towers.

In contrast, two of the peaceful marchers, Ashley Babbitt and Roseanne Boylan were killed by Capitol Police in Jan. 2021.

Today, with what we know about the FBI (remember their raid on Donald Trump’s home in Florida) and documents now deemed the “Dancing Israelis,” it’s becoming a more mainstream thought that their World Trade Center investigations concluded in politically motivated decisons rather than evidence-based.

We now know that the FBI’s NS-2C Unit of its “National Security Division” based at FBI Headquarters, Washington, D.C., ordered FBI office in Newark to cease their investigation of the Dancing Israelis.

In total, officials arrested, detained and questioned hundreds of people on vague suspicions of ties to the Sept. 11 terrorism. One such case remaind especially mysterious.

Initial news reports indicated the five dancing Israelis were “apparently Jewish, working in the United States on temporary visas” and “offered no explanation for the detentions, estimated to be as many as 60 in number, and some of them have begun speaking out in protest and asking courts to end their detention.”

While most were charged with immigration violations, they were soon deported.

The media narrative suddenly changed and reports turned to “Based on what the Israelis say about the questions they have been asked, federal officials appear to believe they are either Muslim extremists hiding behind false Israeli identities or spies working for the Mossad, Israel’s intelligence agency.”

Mark Regev, a spokesman for the Israeli embassy in Washington, said the FBI had not contacted Israel about spying allegations, and that “not a single one has been charged with intelligence violations. It has all been visa violations.”

The New York Times, a regular propaganda tool for the FBI and Deep State, ran with a slant from
Steven Noah Gordon, a lawyer for the 5 Israeli Dancers saying while their behavior may have been offensive, it was not criminal “and they were being treated as if it was.”

The five suspects were soon deported. The FBI offered no explanation for the arrests, even to immigration judges. By November, when the INS asked that bail be denied to 11 Israelis, a judge rejected the request, saying the government had been less than forthcoming with evidence.

“Although the (INS) alleges that these cases are ‘special,’ it has failed to present any credible evidence of the basis for this finding,” Judge Elizabeth Hacker wrote. “The service has failed to submit any evidence of terrorist activity or of a threat to national security.”

Some documents were partly declassified in 2005 but many parts were blanked out and classified. They are scheduled to be released in their entirety sometime between 2030 or 2035.

Based on the released material of 2005, the information provided the five Israelis had foreknowledge of the attacks on the Twin Towers. They took 76 photographs. They had maps with “certain highlighted places.”

Later and suddenly, although it was admitted that there were “tie-ins”, the “evidence linking these Israelis to 9-11” became “classified”. If there was no evidence to link them, there would be no evidence to classify. Other items listed include passports, a flight coupon and itinerary, black organizers, pocket notebooks, and “fabric sample (explosive residue)”.

The 5 Israelis had two cameras, a Canon EOS SLR and a Pentax P550 on September 11, 2001 on them. Witnesses indicated they were “in place documenting the attacks. They were celebrating. They knew when and where to set up their cameras for the perfect angle to document the event.”

According to reports, “East Rutherford officers stopped the van after the FBI’s Newark Field Office broadcast an alert asking surrounding police departments to look for a white Chevrolet van, police said.”

“We got an alert to be on the lookout for a white Chevrolet van with New Jersey registration and writing on the side,” said Bergen County Police Chief John Schmidig. “Three individuals were seen celebrating in Liberty State Park after the impact. They said three people were jumping up and down.”

From the declassified reports:

The East Rutherford officers summoned the county police bomb squad, New Jersey state troopers, and FBI agents, who waited alongside the van as prosecutors from the U.S. Attorney’s Office tried to obtain a warrant to search the van late Tuesday, Schmidig said.

By 10 p.m., members of the bomb squad were picking through the van and X-raying packages found inside, Schmidig said.

Sources said the FBI alert, known as a BOLO or “Be On Lookout,” was sent out at 3:31 p.m. It read:

“Vehicle possibly related to New York terrorist attack. White, 2000 Chevrolet vanwith ‘Urban Moving Systems’ sign on back seen at Liberty State Park, Jersey City, NJ,at the time of first impact of jetliner into World Trade Center.

“Three individuals with van were seen celebrating after initial impact and subsequent explosion. FBI Newark Field Office requests that, if the van is located, hold for prints and detain individuals.”

These reports were issued by various media:

Within two weeks of the attacks, the FBI’s National Security NS-2C unit had made it clear to special agents that any investigation incriminating Israel must be abandoned.

More from the declassified documents:

“Israeli dual citizen, Michael Chertoff sent the Israeli Mossad agents back to Israel where they received a hero’s welcome. During a television interview they said that they were there to document the event. Israeli art students with Austrian passports had 24 hour access to the towers for months before the demolition. They are shown with hanging harnesses that would give them access to the buildings floors through the elevator shafts. They are surrounded by boxes labeled BB18… fuse holders. The name of their art group is the same name as a powerful explosive that is triggered by fuses invented by Nobel, Gelatin.”

On June 21, 2002, ABC News reported that Israeli and U.S. government officials worked out a deal to get the detainees back home to Israel.

Actual Information Acquired by FISA Process Revealed

A note pad belonging to Omer Marmari contained two sets of numbers. Investigation revealed the overseas telephone number was coincidentally subscribed to by an individual in South America with authentic ties to Islamic militants in the middle east [blank]. This number was later indentified as a legitimate bank account belonging to a friend of Marmari’s who lent him two hundred dollars ($200).

The second telephone number once authenticated was according to FBI New York, associated with an [blank]. [Blank] advised this phone number belonged to an individual named [blank] a hashish dealer in the New York metro area.

Why were the Israelis sent back home but Jan. 6 American citizens, some without due process of law, remain imprisoned?

Simple Respect at Marine Vet’s Funeral Lifted Family’s Spirits

“Yesterday during my Daddy’s funeral procession, led by the United States Marine Corps, my family noticed the man in this photo pulled over on the side of the road,” posted Rona Wallace. “His hat was in is hand and his hand was over his heart, honoring my father and our family as we passed by.”

“His respectful act touched my family and the entire procession so deeply,” she noted. “We passed many other cars along the way that simply went about their day.”

“Since his license plate showed in the photo, my daughter did some digging and we found him!!!”

“His name is Ernest Boerlin and he is also a veteran – US Navy,” she continued. “When I messaged him privately to thank him for honoring my father, he said:”

“It was an honor to show my respect for a fellow serviceman and their family. Please accept my prayers and condolences to you and your family for your loss. Fair winds and following seas. God bless.”

“Thank you, Ernest. Your act of kindness and respect touched our family and friends very deeply and we are grateful. May God bless you and yours as well,” she commented. “Let’s thank Ernest for his service and show him some love, y’all!”

Why It Is Critical Now To Know Exactly Where You Stand

 Sometimes, if you are capable, it is a good idea to know where you stand.

Those of us who know some history tend to understand (where we stand) versus those who skip the historical lessons.

Those who spend their time on less reading, more television propaganda, lots of video gaming, and indoctrination activities have no clue where they are standing.

A lot of times, you’ll get exactly what you put up with, no more and no less.

Once you start catering to people’s pathologies, it seldom ends well or at a reasonable point.

One of the best rules to live by is if you realize there’s something you should do, but you’re afraid to do it, you MUST do it. It’s hard at first, but after you overcome your fears enough times, you learn to live a life without fear.

Not that you feel it, you do, but once you believe you can force yourself to act even though you’re afraid, fear isn’t that troubling of an emotion.

Unless you understand both sides of the argument, you don’t understand the argument.

If you listen to God when He whispers, He won’t have to lead a whale into your life to swallow you in order to get your attention.

If someone couldn’t tell what your priorities are by watching you for a week, maybe you’re fooling yourself about your priorities.

It is time. Honor those who fought and advocated for our freedoms. Do your duty.

Vote in person. Share wisdom, truth and real history. Less TV (far less). Read. Walk. Smile. Defend freedom. Pray.

The True Story Behind the FBI, DOJ Raid on President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Estate

It is wise for Americans to turn off mainstream media and not pay attention to the propaganda they will be churning out in regards to the FBI raid on President Donald Trump’s Florida home.

The best estimates (based on plummeted media ratings, the disgraceful Spygate operation, the January 6 Insurrection hoax, true voting tabulations, etc.) are that at least 72 percent of citizens no longer trust all three branches of federal government, the media and especially the Deep State three-letter departments (DOJ, FBI, CIA, CDC, FDA, EPA…).

Monday’s FBI raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate is unprecedented and similar to previous attempts to cancel his power, patriotism, election victory and their disrespect for the U.S. Constitution.

Specifically, the New World Order, World Economic Forum and Deep State puppets are afraid of him. It is imperative–the writing is on the wall–Trump would likely win if he elects to run for president again in 2024.

1. They need to know what proof he has against them.

2. They need to understand his plans against them.

3. Similar to their made up dossier and past false accusations, they need to create more “evidence” to protect themselves and get him out.

Nevermind the free passes for the Clinton and Biden Crime Families, the Jeffrey Epstein pedophile client list and Ukraine/China money laundering kickbacks, they need to produce more false flags, media narratives and fabricated evidence to shut Trump down.

Under the guise of looking for “classified documents,” most Americans, at this point, would not believe any so called evidence the DOJ would use against Trump due to their corrupt past.

Popular meme


Millions more Americans now recognize the pattern, their predictable “Mode of Operation.”

Rather than go over the long history of illegal espionage, failed attempts to get him out of office and details of the coup activities against Trump and the American people, here are some relevant highlights to consider:

🔹Trump is the only potential candidate known to not be influenced by the Deep State. There are likely others, but then again we bought in to Romney, McCain, Crenshaw and even Pence. We are far more cautious and educated now.

🔹The Biden Regime dubiously claimed it had no advance knowledge of the raid, which has overwhelmingly been characterized by Republicans as politically motivated. Who believes the Barack Obama-Susan Rice-George Soros led White House anymore?

🔹Nancy Pelosi’s recent Jan. 6 televised witchhunt spectacle backfired.

🔹The far-left judge who signed the warrant to raid Trump’s home was none other than Bruce Reinhart.

According to the Miami Herald, Reinhart began representing Jeffrey Epstein’s employees on January 2nd, 2008, just one day after departing the U.S. Attorney’s Office where he served as an assistant U.S. attorney closely involved on the convicted pedophile’s case.

Accused of leveraging “inside information about Epstein’s investigation to curry favor with Epstein,” in 2011, he was named as a prosecutor who allegedly violated the rights of an underage girl whom Epstein solicited sex from in the Crime Victims’ Rights Act lawsuit.

Reinhart appears to have exploited his role in the U.S. Attorney’s Office to launch a private criminal defense practice, according to the Miami Herald:

“On Oct 23, 2007, as federal prosecutors in South Florida were in the midst of tense negotiations to finalize a plea deal with accused sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein, a senior prosecutor in their office was quietly laying out plans to leave the U.S. attorney’s office after 11 years. “On that date, as emails were flying between Epstein’s lawyers and federal prosecutors, Bruce E. Reinhart, now a federal magistrate, opened a limited liability company in Florida that established what would become his new criminal defense practice.”

Reinhart insisted that he never represented Epstein himself — “only Epstein’s pilots; his scheduler, Sarah Kellen; and Nadia Marcinkova, described by some victims as Epstein’s sex slave.”

🔹Trump filed a federal RICO suit in Miami, Florida Thursday, March 24, 2022 against none other than Hillary Rodham Clinton and her cohorts over the Russia collusion hoax orchestrated by the Clinton campaign in 2016 to undermine Trump’s candidacy and derail his presidency.

🔹Trump is seeking treble damages of expenses and losses of more than $24 million.

🔹The Defendants are Hillary R. Clinton, HFACC, Inc., the Democratic National Committee, DNC Services Corporation, Perkins Coie, LLC, Michael Sussmann, Marc Elias, Debbie
Wasserman Schultz, Charles Halliday Dolan, Jr., Jake Sullivan, John Podesta, Robert E. Mook, Phillipe Reines,

Fusion GPS, Glenn Simpson, Peter Fritsch, Nellie Ohr, Bruce Ohr, Orbis Business Intelligence, Ltd., Christopher Steele, Igor Danchenko, Neustar, Inc., Rodney Joffe,

James Comey, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, Kevin Clinesmith, Andrew McCabe, “John Does 1 through 10 (said names
being fictious and unknown persons), and ABC Corporations 1 through 10 (said names being fictitious and unknown entities) and alleges as follows:”

“In the run-up to the 2016 Presidential Election, Hillary Clinton and her cohorts orchestrated an unthinkable plot – one that shocks the conscience and is an affront to this nation’s democracy. Acting in concert, the Defendants maliciously conspired to weave a false narrative that their Republican opponent, Donald J. Trump, was colluding with a hostile foreign sovereignty.”

“The actions taken in furtherance of their scheme—falsifying evidence, deceiving law enforcement,
and exploiting access to highly-sensitive data sources – are so outrageous, subversive and
incendiary that even the events of Watergate pale in comparison.

“Under the guise of ‘opposition research,’ ‘data analytics,’ and other political stratagems, the Defendants nefariously sought to sway the public’s trust. They worked together
with a single, self-serving purpose: to vilify Donald J. Trump. Indeed, their far-reaching conspiracy was designed to cripple Trump’s bid for presidency by fabricating a scandal that would
be used to trigger an unfounded federal investigation and ignite a media frenzy.”

“To start, the Clinton Campaign and the DNC enlisted the assistance of their shared counsel, Perkins Coie, a law firm with deep Democrat ties, in the hopes of obscuring their actions under the veil of attorney-client privilege.”

“Perkins Coie was tasked with spearheading the scheme to find—or fabricate—proof of a sinister link between Donald J. Trump and Russia.”

To do so, Perkins Coie launched parallel operations:

–on one front, Perkins Coie partner Marc Elias led an effort to produce spurious ‘opposition research’ claiming to reveal illicit ties between the Trump Campaign and Russian operatives;

–on a separate front, Perkins Coie partner Michael Sussmann headed a campaign to develop misleading evidence of a bogus ‘back channel’ connection between e-mail servers at Trump Tower and a Russian-owned

Marc Elias, in his mission to obtain derogatory anti-Trump ‘opposition research,’ commissioned Fusion GPS, an investigative firm, and its co-founders, Peter Fritsch and Glenn
Simpson, and directed them to dredge up evidence—actual or otherwise—of collusion between Trump and Russia.

Fritsch and Simpson, in turn, enlisted the assistance of Orbis Ltd. and its owner, Christopher Steele, to produce a series of reports purporting to contain proof of the supposed collusion.

Of course, the now fully debunked collection of reports, known as the “Steele Dossier,” was riddled with misstatements, misrepresentations and, most of all, flat out lies.

In truth, the Steele Dossier was largely based upon information provided to Steele by his primary
sub-source, Igor Danchenko, who was subsequently indicted for falsifying his claims.

Even more damning, Danchenko had close ties to senior Clinton Campaign official, Charles Halliday Dolan, Jr., who knowingly provided false information to Danchenko, who relayed it to Steele, who reported it in the Steele Dossier and eagerly fed the deceptions to both the media and the FBI. This duplicitous arrangement existed for a singular self-serving purpose – to discredit Donald J. Trump and his campaign.

At the same time, Michael Sussmann, in his hunt for damaging intel against the Trump Campaign, turned to Neustar, Inc., an information technology company, and one of its top executives, Rodney Joffe, a fervent anti-Trumper who had recently been promised a high ranking position with the Clinton Administration, to exploit their access to non-public data in search of a
secret “back channel” connection between Trump Tower and Alfa Bank.

When it was discovered that no such channel existed, the Defendants resorted to truly subversive measures – hacking servers at Trump Tower, Trump’s private apartment, and, most alarmingly, the White House.

This ill-gotten data was then manipulated to create a misleading “inference” and submitted to law
enforcement in an effort to falsely implicate Donald J. Trump and his campaign.

All of these acts were carried out in coordination with the Clinton Campaign and the DNC, at the behest of certain Democratic “VIPs.”

While their multi-pronged attack was underway, the Defendants seized on the opportunity to publicly malign Donald J. Trump by instigating a full-blown media frenzy.

Melania Trump Maintains Dignity Despite a Relentlessly Shameful Media

Throughout history, several first ladies – notably, Rachel Jackson, Mary Todd Lincoln, Edith Wilson, Eleanor Roosevelt and Nancy Reagan – were attacked or criticized on personal or political grounds, sometimes viciously so by newspapers, developed media, and their husbands’ political foes. 

Mainstream media continues to be shamefully biased, fake and unprofessional–especially when it comes to the beautiful Melania Trump.

Why did Vogue not want Mrs. Trump on the cover of their magazine while she was our First Lady?

It was a dirty game of disrespect and media politics. 

🔹Five months into Joe Biden’s White House residency, Jill Biden appeared on the cover.

🔹Former First Lady Michelle Obama was on the cover three times.

🔹Hilary Clinton was on the cover during her time as the first lady.

🔹Vice President Kamala Harris was on the cover before even being sworn in.

Unlike Melania Trump, none of these ladies had modeled before. 

During Donald J. Trump’s presidency, the White House itself proudly listed the first lady’s previous credits, noting: “She has graced the covers of Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, British GQ, Ocean Drive, Avenue, In Style, and New York Magazine. Her major layouts include the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, Allure, Vogue, Self, Glamour, Vanity Fair, and Elle.”

It was obvious before President Trump’s spectacular inauguration, mainstream media would be vicious, shameful and disrespectful. When asked about their double standard, especially with Melania having a background in business and fashion, she responded:

“They’re biased and they have likes and dislikes, and it’s so obvious. And I think American people and everyone sees it. It was their decision, and I have much more important things to do — and I did in the White House — than being on the cover of Vogue.”

The contemptible media, including liberal fashion publications, showed their bias by pulling out all the stops for Michelle Obama when she served as first lady from 2009 to 2017.

During her husband’s eight-year presidency, Michelle appeared on at least 30 U.S. magazine covers, three of which were Vogue. She also appeared twice on the covers of Essence magazine, Time magazine, More magazine and Glamour magazine. Other covers included Redbook, InStyle, and Radar,

During her tenure as first lady, Melania only graced one magazine cover — Vanity Fair Mexico — just in her first month at the White House in February 2017

“If the Trumps were Democrats, Melania would be on every cover of every chic women’s magazine in the world every month,” notable actor James Woods tweeted (and subsequently retweeted over 20,000 times by those who agree with him).

Woods was one of a handful of celebrities to defend the first lady as it was standard practice for media pundits, editors and commentators to belittle, criticize, or undermine Mrs. Trump.

Compared to their glowing coverage of Michelle Obama (and continuing to today), the press were like wicked stepsisters treating Melania like a torn and downtrodden Cinderella.

It is ironic, since Mrs. Trump is a mother, businesswoman and former high fashion model who has been nothing but poised and gracious on the global stage as our First Lady.

Even NBC News’ own media analyst Claire Atkinson, during Trump’s tenure said that there was “a clear reluctance among editors to put themselves in the cross-hairs of the culture wars” by featuring Melania— despite her stature as a versatile and engaged public figure who speaks five languages and has consistently higher favorability ratings than any previous First Lady (except for Jackie Kennedy).

Melania spent considerable time visiting service members, children’s hospitals, immigration facilities, newborn intensive care units, and drug abuse treatment centers.

🔹She participated in Toys for Tots drives.

🔹She accompanied her husband in welcoming many foreign heads of state to the White House.

🔹She visited hurricane devastated areas along with the President, and supported recovery efforts there.

🔹She attended state funerals.

🔹She comforted the families of mass shooting events, and thanked in person our first responders.

🔹She was the principle mover behind an effort to get young people to be more civil to each other, especially online, where incivility and bullying is rampant.

Basically mainstream media coverage of her efforts were ignored, or they focused on humiliation and trivial matters. They criticize her clothes, her shoes, sometimes even her accent. Rather than commend her for trying to get children to be more civil to each other online, they were relentless to criticize her along the way.

The One Thing Most Americans May Not Be Considering is World Shocking


Henry Kissinger-99, George Soros-91, Jacob Rothschild-86, Pope Francis-85, Nancy Pelosi-82, Joe Biden-79, Bill Clinton-75, Hillary Clinton-74, Bill Gates-66, Valerie Jarrett-65, Barack Obama-60, Susan Rice-57.

Here’s a reliable take on how and why Susan Rice and her Joe Biden puppet have been failing miserably. It is from Benjamin Fulford of benjaminfulford.net.

The fake US President Biden failed to get oil on his recent begging trip to the Middle East. This means the countdown for the implosion of the US and Western Europe has begun. Revolution is in the air and there will be no turning back, multiple sources agree.

Biden’s handlers’ hoped to use Iran as an “enemy” in order to justify massive arms sales in exchange for oil. Saudi ambassador to Washington Remma bint Bandar Al Saud summed up the region’s thinking when she dismissed the “oil-for-security paradigm” as “outdated and reductionist.”

🔹No weapons for oil means no oil for the US and its’ client states. No oil means no economic activity.

The Khazarian mafia meanwhile, like a dying beast, is spitting out fear porn, bio-weapons and threatening war in a desperate effort to stave off the inevitable. However, their medical mafia is being systematically hunted down and killed.

Fulford submits that, “the result was US industry lost its competitiveness and over 50 years of trade deficits turned the US into the most indebted country in world history.”

“Then finally the rest of the world decided to stop lending money to the US in 2008, leading to the ‘Lehman shock,’” he continued.

Note, in September 2008, the collapse of Lehman Brothers set off a crisis that paralyzed financial markets around the world. 

“The Americans were able to buy time then by promising to put a black communist in as president,” he stated, indicating the public should realize that “communism was created by the Vatican or should I say the P2 freemasons who control the Vatican and that Obama was/is their house slave.”

“In any case, the Obama ruse convinced the Asians to hand over 700 tons of gold to the Federal Reserve Board under Alan Greenspan,” Fulford claims. “This was leveraged over a thousand-fold to create $23 trillion that kept the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA CORPORATION going until 2020.”

“When the money ran out in January of 2020 the Khazarian Mafia-controlled West responded with a massive bio-weapons and vaccine attack,” he stated. “They hoped to murder enough people so that they could stay in power. This effort has failed.”


“They also managed to get some funding for the US CORPORATION by promising to bring back Barack Obama with Joe Biden acting as his front man,” Fulford indicates.

“Now, as a result of general disgust with the antics of the fake Biden regime, this money has been cut off,” he explains. “This is the background to the truly historic events that are unfolding before our eyes.”

In the news, this can be seen in the fall of multiple governments and the isolation of the G7 from the rest of the world economy.

Fulford offers insight to Biden’s recent failed Beg For Oil visit to the Middle East.

“His failure to get continued free oil in exchange for money printed out of nothing is going to have ramifications far beyond the United States,” he surmises. “It will mean the end of the BIS, the UN, the EU and perhaps even the Papacy.”

To understand why this is, Fulford offers a historical review:

🔹The BIS, or central bank of central banks, was founded in 1930 using Asian gold.

🔹This gold was lent to the Germans to help them pay their obligations under the Treaty of Versailles signed at the end of World War I.

🔹In exchange, the Asians were promised the United Nations would be set up as a world parliament with the ancient royal families of East and West (the dragon family) acting as background supervisors.

🔹However, at the end of World War II the victorious allies reneged on their promise to spend the gold that was lent to them to develop the entire planet, Instead, their Marshall Plan only developed the countries they controlled (now known as the G7).

🔹In retaliation, the Asians cut off any further access to their gold.

🔹When the US ran out of gold, we had the “Nixon shock” of 1971. That is when the dollar was decoupled from gold.

🔹Instead, the countries of the world had to use dollars to buy oil.

“This was a giant sugar high to the US,” Fulford makes clear. “The countries of the world had to have a trade surplus with the US in order to buy oil. This led to a strong dollar and free money for the Americans.”

“However, the result was US industry lost its competitiveness and over 50 years of trade deficits turned the US into the most indebted country in world history.”


Where do people like Bill Gates and George Soros fit into this?

Soros, like Biden, and Henry Kissinger, may not be around much longer due to age and health. Perhaps their hope is in Gates and his contemporaries, as they continue on buying up businesses, farms, ranches, land and technologies to move their odd like agendas forward.

Fulford sums it up:

“When we look at what has happened to us, especially in the West, over the past two years, we can see that a powerful group has been trying to alter our genes with vaccines designed to turn us into domesticated animals.

“As Henry Kissinger once famously boasted: ‘In the future it will be as impossible for the ordinary people to rebel against us as it is for a sheep to rebel against a farmer.’

“We are fighting against a tribal group that wants to monopolize the ability to become superhuman. They want the rest of us to have short, ignorant lives of inescapable and permanent slavery.

In other words, humanity is at a cross roads.”

Top Most Isolated Vacation Trips in the Lower 48 American States

West Texas


There’s nothing better than time away from the noise to recharge your batteries and uplift your mood. There are many isolated, but sight-worthy places within the U.S you can visit.

Here is a sampling of just some of the places that are popular among nature lovers, easy to locate, and the perfect adventure for boosting your dopamine levels. 

Havasupai, Arizona

This location is known to many for the Havasu Falls located in Havasupai Canyon in Arizona. The waterfall itself is located in a remote area on Havasupai Native Reservation.

To get to the falls, you’ll have to walk a distance of 10-miles or join a horseback excursion. This might be a bit stressful for people who don’t like walking or riding horses, but it’s definitely worth the walk.

Once you arrive, you’d be in the midst of one of the most beautiful places on earth. The crystal clear turquoise water plunges down the fiery red cliffs into travertine swimming holes at the bottom.

There are also four other major waterfalls nearby; Upper and Lower Najavo Falls, Beaver Falls, and Mooney Falls. You may as well take this opportunity to explore them too.

Bob Marshall Wilderness, Montana

Montana is known for its abundant open spaces of wilderness. And the Bob Marshall Wilderness Complex, located in the northwestern part of the state, is one wilderness that tops them all—the third-largest wilderness area in the Lower 48.

It follows the Continental Divide for 60 miles, spread across 1.5 million acres of rocky ridges, alpine meadows, and dense forest.

Within the Bob Marshall Wilderness, you can find all kinds of wildlife. From moose to elk, wolves, grizzlies, mountain lions, mountain goats, and deer.

Not only is this wilderness a magnificent place to visit, but the area also contains what is believed to be the most dramatic natural feature of the Rockies: the Chinese Wall, a limestone escarpment deep in the wilderness and a part of the Continental Divide.

Bighorn Mountains, Wyoming

The Bighorn Mountains are one of the best places to visit in Wyoming and quite an isolated area—Visited only by a few people even during high peak travel seasons.

A 58-mile drive on the Bighorn Scenic Byway will bring you over its crest. The mountain stretches from the Powder River Basin to the Bighorn Basin, following Highway 14 from outside the town of Greybull.

If you love camping and a good hike, an adventure on this mountain is definitely for you. You’ll find miles of trails for hiking and perfect places to set camp. However, if you prefer to sleep in a hotel or hostel, the town of Buffalo is nearby and offers many options for accommodation and attractions of its own.

Gila National Forest and the Gila Cliff Dwellings

Fancy a trip to SouthWest America in Arizona? Then head over to Gila National Forest. The Gila National Forest has more official wilderness than any other protected forest in the Southwest.

The 558,000-acre Gila Wilderness was the first designated wilderness area in the world. With terrain varying from grassy foothills to juniper woodland, ponderosa pine and spruce-fir forests on high peaks. The Gila Wilderness connects the Blue Range Wilderness and the Aldo Leopold Wilderness.

The Gila Cliff dwellings, built as far back as the 13th century, are located within the Gila National Forest. For thousands of years, groups of ancient nomads used the caves above the Gila River as a temporary shelter. Until the late 1200s, when the people of the agricultural Mogollon culture made it their homes. They built rooms, crafted pottery, and raised children in the cliff dwellings for one or two generations before moving away by 1300.

Boundary Waters Wilderness, Minnesota

The Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness in northeast Minnesota is one of America’s most beautiful and remote places. With over 1,100 lakes and hundreds of miles of waterways, its vast wilderness extends 150 miles along the U.S.-Canada border, covering approximately 1,098,000 acres.

It offers some of the country’s best canoeing, with 1,200 miles of canoeing trails attracting over 150,000 visitors yearly. From paddling from one lake to the next and stepping off onto countless miles of untouched shoreline, there are many interesting things to do in the Boundary Waters wilderness.

If you need some time alone, that can be arranged. Head to the Boulder and Adams lakes. They are some of the most remote lakes around here—it’s almost certain you’d see absolutely no one.

Spending time in isolated places doesn’t mean you wouldn’t have fun. Some of the most isolated places in the country are some of the most beautiful sights in the world. Don’t forget to breathe fresh air amidst nature. There are many open spaces around America perfect for recollecting thoughts while away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

The Patriotic American Lesson of a True Insurrection

The Battle of Athens, Tennessee

The Battle of Athens, Tennessee

Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, their families and cohorts  remind many patriotic citizens today of Paul Cantrell and his political machine.

In Athens, Tennessee, the seat of McMinn County, was once upon a time, the headquarters of Sheriff Cantrell, the unscrupulous boss of a corrupt Democratic machine which stretched from Tennessee to Washington, DC.

When so many of the husbands, fathers, uncles, sons and cousins left for duty during the Second World War, Cantrell kicked his corruption into high gear.

🔹On the books, Cantrell drew salaries of nearly sixty thousand dollars per year over his first six years that were worth over $715,000 in today’s dollars.

🔹He was also appointed superintendent of the county workhouse (which didn’t even exist) for an additional two thousand dollars annually. a time when the median Tennessee home was worth less than two thousand dollars and the starting salary for enlisted men was fifty dollars per month.

🔹Despite the strict rationing for millions of patriotic citizens, Cantrell’s “lieutenants” and “enforcers” had plenty of cars, tires, and fuel.

🔹Reminiscent of Bill Clinton and Jeffrey Epstein, or Joe Biden and Judge Emmett Sullivan, Cantrell and company had their own whorehouses, not to mention illegal casinos, and speakeasies, to play in and take in thousands of dollars per month in protection money.

🔹Like Congress and the Senate today protecting their beloved kickback schemes from Ukraine, by 1946, Cantrell had dozens of county employees on the payrolls to provide cover for their vast money laundering operations.

🔹By August 1, 1946, citizens had enough. The boys who went to fight in World War II returned home as men, brave veterans.


🔹While the “roosters” were gone saving the world from tyranny, the “fox” made certain the elections were rigged, much like 2020.

🔹McMinn County ballot boxes remained in Democratic offices. Cantrell’s deputies were the “election officers,” some of whom went down in history as “brutal killers with the blood of innocent civilians on their hands. Other local thugs and felons were on hand to further inculcate the climate of fear, including a man who murdered his own father and, five months after the election, murdered his sister-in-law, an expectant mother, and an infant child.”

🔹Like the patriots of January 6, 2021, some of McMinn County voters were imprisoned to prevent them from voting.

🔹Similar to the fake news of Big Media today, the message went out to older voters that their pensions would be held up unless they voted “the right way.”

🔹When a Republican election judge, a disabled veteran of World War I, tried to view the ballot count, he was dragged into the corridor and beaten, leaving him paralyzed.

🔹Another man who attempted to observe the ballot count was pistol-whipped, and one gunman fired at a poll worker who tried to leave the courthouse.

🔹Citizens petitioned the Department of Justice for relief, knowing that local and State officials would not take any action against the machine.

🔹Like the DOJ of 2022, the 1946 Department of Justice took no to little action and downplayed any evidence.

🔹Judges then, as now, dismissed evidence and lawsuits that did make it into courts. Of course, judges, DAs, senators and congressmen were associated with the machine. In one case, the judge not only dismissed most of the charges but fined the men one penny for the charges that stuck.

🔹The machine awarded Cantrell by having him “elected” to the Tennessee Senate. Pat Mansfield replaced him as Sheriff.

🔹Stories started to spread that widows and daughters of some deceased military heroes were forced into prostitutuon.

🔹Surviving veterans returned home to a community of horror.

🔹Near the end of September, 1944, Earl Ford, a returned Navy Seabee, was shot and killed by one of Mansfeld’s thugs, George Spurling.

🔹Not long after Ford was killed, Bill White returned from his tour of duty. Bill’s father, Edd, a veteran of the First World War, told his son a story:

He walked five miles a day to work at the power station on Railroad Avenue. He carried his lunch in a brown paper bag and a pint of milk from Mayfield’s Dairy. While walking past the jail on his way home he saw four deputies stare at him, get in a car, and start the engine. As he walked past the courthouse, the car was in the middle of the street, following him. He lowered his head and kept walking. He walked past the bus station and they were right alongside him. Edd picked up the pace. They accelerated. He didn’t know what they wanted with him or why. But he knew it wasn’t good. He panicked and started running to his house. The car pulled in front of him and slammed on its brakes. Four deputies jumped out with clubs in their hands. He was arrested and taken to jail. Now it was time to figure out a reason. The deputies took his milk bottle out of the bag and passed it around, taking a sniff. “Smells funny,” they agreed. The deputies who protected the roadhouses and honky-tonks and lined their pockets with kickbacks from bootleggers and pimps decided the remnant of Edd White’s milk was alcohol. He was fined $16.05, several days’ pay.

“It was a big surprise,” Bill described about returning home from the war, and “everything, everything, everything you’ve been told you’re supposed to be fighting for wasn’t there.” There were “liquor houses, whorehouses, gambling joints all over the county,” protected by “a bunch of thugs wearing guns and badges.”

Sounding very familiar to Americans today, Cantrell back then decided he was returning to Athens to “run” for Sheriff, Mansfield would be his handpicked successor to “run” for the State Senate seat.

🔹The veterans could stand no more. It was time to take action. They were told to keep away from the polls and to not even think about running for office, the veterans began organizing anyway.

🔹They prepared in secrecy to put a ticket together. They called it the “Ex-Serviceman’s Cleanup Ticket for McMinn County.”

🔹The local Republican Party endorsed them. One party official summed it up:

“We are involved in a conflict with desperate enemies who have sought to subject us to tyranny and oppression…We feel a deep sense of obligation and now seek in measure to repay…Young men who have fought against oppression abroad will continue that fight for honesty and decency at home.”

🔹Bill White finally told the group they were being naïve, arguing that they had to organize a fighting bunch:

“Listen. Do you think they’re going to let you win this election? Those people been taking these elections for years with a bunch of armed thugs. If you never got the guts enough to stand up and fight fire with fire, you ain’t gonna win.”

An Athens minister preached to his congregation:

“If you do not vote as your conscience dictates, then you have sold your citizenship and do not deserve to be citizens. It is the responsibility of each and every person to preserve our most cherished possession, liberty, or forever lose it.”


🔹Armed deputies “guarded” each polling place, and reports of election fraud poured in to GI headquarters almost immediately.

🔹One veteran reported, “They already started knocking our boys in the head and putting them in jail. They’re taking this thing…This thing’ lost.”

Athens Jail, 1946

🔹A deputy beat and shot a sixty-year-old who insisted he was going to vote as he tried to enter a polling place.

🔹Another deputy brutally beat an election judge, a veteran who protested the shameful voter fraud he witnessed.

🔹One writer indicated “there were twelve ballot boxes: one in the jail, another inside a heavily defended courthouse, a third barricaded in the Dixie Café, a fourth in the vault in the Cantrell Bank Building, and poll watchers had been ejected at two other locations.”

🔹Inside the courthouse, deputies held a handful of GI poll watchers hostage, two of them wounded.

🔹Bill White and some of the team of GI veterans took these courthouse “deputies” for a drive out in the country were they marched them into the woods, made them take off their clothes, and tied them to trees. Some were whipped with a hickory stick.

Some of the veterans who took their city back


🔹Leaving the naked and whipped deputies tied to the trees, White and team returned to town. White told his fellow patriots:

Well! Here you are! After three or four years of fighting for your country. You survived it all. You came back. And what did you come back to? A free country? You came back to Athens, Tennessee, in McMin!n County, that’s run by a bunch of outlaws. They’ve got hired gunmen all over this county right now at this minute. What for? One purpose. To scare you so bad you won’t dare stand up for the rights you’ve been bleeding and dying for. Some of your mothers and some of your sisters are afraid to walk down the streets to the polling places. Lots of men, too! Because they know what happens. A car drives by in the night and shoots out your windows. If that doesn’t scare you enough, they’ll set fire to your house or your barn. They’ll beat up members of your family and put them in jail. For no reason! Is that the kind of freedom you were supposed to be fighting for? Do you know what your rights are supposed to be? How many rights have you got left? None! Not even the right to vote in a free election. When you lose that, you’ve lost everything. And you are damned well going to lose it unless you fight and fight the only way they understand. Fire with fire! We’ve got to make this an honest election because we promised the people that if they voted it would be an honest election. And it’s going to be. But only if we see that it is. We are going to have to run these organized criminals out of town, and we can do it if we stick together. Are you afraid of them? Why, I could take a banana stalk and run every one of these potbellied draft dodgers across Depot Hill. Get the hell out of here and get something to shoot with. And come back as fast as you can.

Bill White, 1946

🔹The veterans returned with an arsenal of pistols, rifles, shotguns, squirrel guns, and European souvenirs like a German Mauser. It wasn’t enough.

🔹A group of them raided the nearby National Guard armory, where they found revolvers, a Thompson submachine gun, an array of .30-caliber M1917 rifles, and plenty of ammunition.

🔹Sheriff deputies gathered at the jail, where the ballot boxes had been taken.

Local hero patriots pose in jail after they took it over.

🔹 White remembered how they had sworn to defend America against all of her enemies. Later, he explained that “if it was worth going over there and risking your life, laying it down, it was worth it here, too. So, we decided to fight.”

🔹The veterans formed a line on a hillside across from the jail and demanded that the machine men bring out the ballot boxes. From the jail, someone yelled, “You’re going to have to come get them.”

🔹A gun battle commenced and the vets climbed to rooftops, strategically surrounding the jail.

🔹 Other veterans fired from behind walls and parked cars. They shot out the transformer that supplied the jail. The deputies could even see their ammo which had mostly been used up.

🔹More deputies from both Monroe and Polk Counties arrived with a plan to kill Knox Henry, the veteran candidate for Sheriff.

🔹After receiving news that the National Guard had been mobilized, the veterans asked White what they should do. He replied immediately, vowing, “We’re not going to do anything about it. We’re going to keep shooting here until we get those ballot boxes and get those people out of there.”

🔹Some of the veterans went and returned with an enormous stockpile of dynamite in the old county barn that the county used to clear roads and blast stumps and stones.

🔹They began tossing dynamite in increasing amounts at the jail, aiming closer and closer with each throw, finally promising that the next would be through the window.

🔹The deputized political machine men, outgunned and out of ammunition, surrendered with their hands held straight up as they walked out.

🔹The patriots searched the deputies for weapons and marched them from the jail to the courthouse in a column led by Bill White.

🔹White’s men gathered all deputies fancy late model cars so citizens could see them turn them over, douse them with gasoline, and set aflame.

🔹The veterans delivered a statement to a local radio station:

“The GI election officials went to the polls unarmed to have a fair election, as Pat Mansfield promised. They were met with blackjacks and pistols. Several GI officials were beaten and the ballot boxes were moved to the jail. The GI supporters went to the jail to get these ballot boxes and were met by gunfire. The GI candidates had promised that the votes would be counted as cast. They had no choice but to meet fire with fire. In the precincts where the GI candidates were allowed watchers, they led by three-to-one majorities. The GIs are elected and will serve as your county officials beginning September 1, 1946.”

The GIs continued by:

🔹Halting their planned aerial attack at a nearby airstrip in which they had planned to drop bombs over the jail.

🔹Raided all of the gambling dens, seized the slot machines and destroyed the equipment.

🔹Knox Henry was sworn in as Sheriff and declared:

“We have accomplished what we started out to do. We’ve broken the grip of the political machine that has ruled McMinn County for ten years without regard as to the wishes of the people in how their government was to be run. When I say we, I mean the other GIs on the nonpartisan cleanup ticket and the citizens of McMinn County who helped us win the battle.”

“We regret that the gunfight at the jail had to happen…Our only alternative was to use force…there will be no trouble of this kind at the next election. Any person who can qualify for an office may run with the full assurance of an honest election and the people will have nothing to fear when they go to the polls on Election Day.”

🔹Knox needed a whole new team of deputies, and pinned a star on Bill White. Almost immediately, they carried out raids on the moonshiners and bootleggers who had enjoyed the protection of the eliminated machine.

Soon, a Commonwealth editorial read:

“Since, after all, our American nation was founded by virtue of revolution, and since such revered figures as Jefferson evidently thought that revolution had valuable tonic effects on the body politic, it would be a trifle hypocritical for Americans to raise their hands in horror at these goings-on in the shadow of the Great Smokies.”

These brave patriots of Athens, Tennessee, fought and won the only successful armed insurrection in the United States since the War of Independence….so far.
