The following information was provided to me by my DHS contact on two different occasions. I was asked to withhold the final portion of the information that was provided to me at that time until after the inauguration. (Snip) RB: First of all, two days after the inauguration, at exactly 7:00 a.m. on January 23, something called “the Cyber-Warriors for Obama Project” was activated. I heard about this the week after the election, but only saw a hardcopy draft in late December. From what I was told, I believe this is a project that is being paid
Comments: This recorded interview with a DHS insider starts out seemingly bland. But the content will terrify you soon enough. The planned ‘events’ have been unfolding . . . and the end goal seems to explain the various government departments’ massive buildup of hollow point bullets and other WCD (weapons of citizen destruction). Have you guessed yet who is on Obama’s kill list?
Yikes! Though I´m not surprised by any of it. I´ve been reading The Ulsterman, White House Insider and Wall Stree Insider for some time. Commenter was right when they said it´s like we are at the bottom of a hill and there´s this great big snowball coming right at us and we don´t know what to do but stand there and wait for it to hit us.
Looks like this got to really going good during the GHWB era, Klintoon moved it along, as did GWB. I specifically remember being surprised about reading about GWB signing EO´s that would fit with this and how surprised I was. And every time Alex Jones´ name is mentioned, people poo poo him like crazy but maybe they are the crazy ones. Too many are going to be too surprised when it happens.
And finally, I am thankful for the Canada Free Press and the UK Daily Mail for without them we would know nothing. Our media has their heads up Obama´s nethers.
I am a huge fan of CFP . They post articles that most American Press would never touch. However in this case this insider is not saying anything that a well informed L DOTER don´t already know. Most of us have been preparing for a collapse since 08. The Propagandist MSM in this Nation have started a War with some Folks that buy Ink by the Drum.Let the Party begin.
I knew when they implemented the DHS we lost the war on terror, and we lost true America. It was just a power grab by the ´one worlders´ like the Bush´s and now this crowd. This has been going on for a while, and both parties are complicit.
This all seems VERY conspiratorial...and to believe this you´d have to believe that everyone from Bush, Sr. (why not just go back to Reagan and even Carter?), to Dick Cheney, to Newt Gingrich, to even, perhaps, Mitt Romney are all in on the conspiracy. I don´t buy it.
I do believe the LEFT tries to push their agenda by creating chaos and disrupting lives. I do think they do EVERYTHING they do in order to grab more power for THEMSELVES.
But this article is reading like some sort of whacked out Illuminati conspiracy.
time to separate the boys from the men..no gender implied here,you get my drift..you know,one thing i have always believed..if you are going to die,die with your boots on..HT to the great Iron Maiden!!
I read an article as chilling as this and want to move to Bora Bora. Then, I stop myself and think...ok...Why would a bunch of rich conspirators take down the US and it´s people? So they can have our money and property? They´ve got it now!
I think, in some measure, that our Gov´t does plan for citizen uprisings be it race or not.
Don´t buy it if you will. this has been happening since 1913 and the FED and before. Money is the key; Control the money and I care not what laws are put in place. (paraphrase by Rothschild) We´re looking at troublesome times.
#24. There was nothing mysterious about Andrew´s death. His friends had been concerned and were begging him to take some time off. His family reported that he had been diagnosed with cardiac issues for some time.
My own brother dropped dead of a heart attack at age 27. His last few years were painfully close to Andrew´s: Warned that his heart was fragile he decided to live life to the fullest during what time he may have.
This sounds nutty to me. I don´t believe it. But I can easily understand why some people do. It does in fact look a great deal like there is a vast conspiracy intent upon destroying America. Such a conspiracy would explain a great deal that doesn´t make sense by itself.
I don´t, myself, think that such a gigantic, secret, malevolent conspiracy exists. I think the danger we face is far greater than that. It might be easier -at any rate it would be simpler- to deal with such a plot than with what we actually confront: a moronic citizenry that is being led lemming-like by a clueless liberal Establishment in a blind race to the cliff. There could be a better chance of exposing and defeating a relatively small number of evil-doers, people knowingly trying to foul everything up and bring down the roof on our heads, than there is of combating a vast crusade of fools, camp followers and crooks, guided and led by clueless sophomoric liberals and political cranks.
I think they are preparing for the riots that will occur when the SCOTUS rules that Obambi is illegal and is removed from office, That will prompt a country-wide black rebellion. On February 15th they will have a conference on pending case to decide to take it up for review. Lets hope that happens.

The cyber warriors operation seems credible. It´s in line with what totalitarians do. But I can´t swallow the vast scale of this purported conspiracy. What´s in this for people like the Bushes and big bankers? Even if you think they are traitors, which I don´t, If our economy is destroyed they´re not going to benefit. Nobody benefits when there´s no money changing hands.
It looks like this guy took something real that is worth a lot of attention, and then spun this other conspiracy theory. In that way he is doing great harm, because it the LEFT that is doing this, and we can´t take our attention off that.
I don´t know if this specifically is true, but this I DO know - what they have been doing to America IS bringing it down. And, I have been praying that the evil that some seem to be planning will come back on themselves. We, alone, can´t stop anything. But, I know One who can!!
#30 Yes, I read about his health issues, too. It´s the timing of his death, not to mention the location. I´m not saying Andrew was murdered, but I do question his death. Ever since Vince Foster, I stopped buying the ´pat answers´ when certain people die.
If one reads comments on many websites, the trolls are there. Brietbart gets more than it´s share. Right when "The Tea Party Community" was getting ready to publicly launch a week ago they had a serious attack---DOS that put the site down. The owners have since instituted the same type of secure site that banks and other entities use......the "http(s) secure. Of course, still the hackers can penetrate this. Most conservative sites at one time or another have seen the trolls, the attacks and reading benign lefty sites people have let certain knowledge of "paid trolls" slip. These are usually a lot of insignificant sites where the "LO INFO" commenters think they are safe to say anything. They have a tendency to boast a bit to much, BUT this plays right along with obama´s new 501(c) set-up. It´s most likely going to get worse....trying to get as much as possible out of Mutual Funds and IRAs as possible and have been for last several years. The "under the mattress" scenario works for me and mine.
I tend to agree with #34 - what is in it for the winners when the whole country is crumbling down around their ears? The only answer I´ve heard came from a video I watched of Ann Barnhardt when she said that all of the lefties in power have one thing in common - a pathological desire to just MESS with people. IOW, control freaks who have a demonic need to control, harass & intimidate others because it plays into their delusions of grandeur. They want the power of LIFE & DEATH over others. Libs are selfish, empty souls who worship only themselves & it is a lonely, unsatisfying existence - so they try to destroy everybody else´s happiness, so that they won´t be alone in their misery.
#10, the people involved in the plot are the shadow government, the fellow travelers that are around the edges of the administration. George Soros has been responsible for collapsing economies for profit. The Science Adviser/Regulatory Czar has hypothesized putting sterilants in drinking water to limit population growth. He also knows that multi billion regulations will do the same to economic growth. They tried in 2009 to pass these as laws, but are fully prepared to implement same as regulations.
Some final thoughts. These Cyber Warriors are being paid minimum wage and their handlers slightly more? This really sounds like the beginnings of another Obama family member´s political campaign. Perhaps Michelle?
It´s going to take a lot more than a bunch of pimply-faced hackers with binders to pull this off.
Yes, we´re going to see troubled times but remember, the power of Impeachment. I think there´s going to be big trouble over this Benghazi thing.
I always go back to the deep, deep coffers of campaign money Zippy got illegally...no one questioned the foreign money and addresses; no one gave "OBL" his money back in Pakistan when Breitbart put through a donation using his name. We´re owned by many foreign entities now, and Zippy has given over our country to these interests.
His coffers are paying everyone off to stand down, or face ruinous blackmail or possibly something much worse. Clint Eastwood asks why should WE care if our leaders don´t? They can´t, apparently. Zippy and Val own everyone. John Roberts and Obamacare. Boehner. All the Republican congressional members White House Insider and Wall Street Insider rallied to the cause of ousting this regime. They ran like hell when the fire became real and very hot, or they had much too much to lose and hide. And, finally, the systematic removal of true military leaders, as in post-Benghazi purge, & only the political a-kissers remain to do Obama´s bidding.
Look at the audacity of a Hagel as SecDef, knowing who puts money in his bank account. They knew, and didn´t care. Zippy talking politics w/ Bibi while 4 abandoned Americans were left to die. He doesn´t have to care any longer...no one is a threat.
They own everyone who could cause a real problem to a real "regime" - except the average American citizen who is awake and aware. Those bullets are for us.
It´s more simple than that. The zero admin plans to try to shove some very unpalatable things down the throats of American citizens and they expect a certain level of violent resistance. Only when it happens will they find out that they have severely underestimated the level of that resistance.
FTA: This is a continuing operation that involves many of the same people on both sides of the aisle in Washington. This is one of the reasons why no one wants to talk about Obama’s past. He is the product of a continuing intelligence operation, put in power to oversee the dismantling of the U.S., with the economy being the lynchpin...
That is one of the most chilling things I have ever read. Ironically, I just started reading Full Black by Brad Thor and at the front of the book he says the story is based the real blueprint to destroy America called Unrestricted Warfare. Search for that. It is horrifying. Soros´ name comes up also when you do that search. We can see that in play if this is true. And with China holding all of our money?? It´s too much to deal with. I put nothing past those who are in office now. Why would he write this if it was not true. The problem is, what in the world do we do about it. As if we didn´t have enough to worry about.
I´m sorry, but this isn´t possible. There´s no way that anyone will be able to convince me that there are that many men and women in the armed forces (not to mention the law enforcement officials in states like Texas) that are just going to follow orders and not follow the Constitution. If our ruling elite is making a whacked-out plan like this, they are going to be in for a rude awakening when their "stand down" orders are disobeyed on a huge scale.
I don´t know if this is true or not but I used to listen to Doug Hagmann over the internet. When I found out that he believes 9/11 was an inside job,I quit listening. He is a big conspiracy theorist He and Alex Jones believe a like.
An interesting article. However, it has to be predicated on something that I don´t think will ever happen. And that is having the U.S. military turn on American citizens. Far too many soldiers, sailors, and airmen love their country too much to do that. And neither would they sit on the sidelines. Do a google search on the Battle of Athens, Tn that occured just after the close of WWII. That´s what will happen in today´s climate. And just remember that there are estimated to be over 2 millions guns in the hands of private citizens. And most of them are willing to take up arms to defend this country. This isn´t 1917 Russia.
If you are a believer in Jesus and the Bible, this is all laid out for you. The battle that is surely coming is between God and Satan. Humans are but pawns to Satan. I am pleased so many want to stand and fight and take back what has been stolen from us, but the most effective position is on your knees, engaged in Spiritual warfare. When our part is fulfilled, God is removing the church, and all hell will break out. Make sure your eternal future with God is secure, than plan to rescue as many as possible from what´s coming.
And for those who don´t understand how bankers would make money on a collapsing economy, familiarize yourself with the term "selling short".
If you´re betting your money on a stock price falling, you win. If you´re tipped off in advance that a stock - or all stocks - will fall in return for your cooperation with the process, that´s playing with house money. Our money.
slight correction on your numbers, #55: it´s over 200 million, not 2 million guns, all in the hands of some 55 million gun owners.
Re the article, I found it interesting that there were little or no questions (perhaps I ovelooked them) regarding the "motives" of these "conspiracists" intent on destroying the US; e.g., I can readily accept people trying to gain power by controlling the citizenry and making them dependent on government, etc., but to destroy what you are trying to gain power over? That perhaps infers a willingness to diminish ones own standard of living. What am I missing here (someone please enlighten me)?
#61, If you are wealthy beyond dreams already, then more money does nothing for you. It´s the power that gets them going. Almost the whole entire world is a bunch of jellyfish people willing to be ruled by anyone. Not so in America. Many here know what freedom is and will try to hold onto it when the time comes. So this last bastion of freedom is all that needs to fall before a one world rule can even happen. If you want full control, you don´t care if America that was still exists, you actually want it gone!!
All of the issues discussed in Hagmann´s article range from plausible to compelling to inevitable. In this third category there is this from the article:
FTA [edited]:The DHS will oversee the domestic crackdown that will happen when the perfect storm bears down on us. And the perfect storm is:
1) The economy, meaning the U.S. dollar collapse and hyperinflation, 2) Racial or class riots sparked by a high-profile incident, and 3) Another mass causality event involving guns. Watch for these three things to happen all at once, or in close succession.
The polarization caused by these events will be sufficient to cause a second civil war.
In an earlier posting here, Andrew Malcolm discusses the outrageous purchase of millions of rounds of ammunition be various agencies of the federal government, led by DHS.
In his analysis of why this is occurring, Malcolm ties all of our fears (and Obama’s brilliant machinations) together and takes us back to July, 2008 when candidate Obama exposed part of his strategy for the subjugation of the U.S. and its citizens: "We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we´ve set. We´ve got to have a civilian national security force that´s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded."
While we are distracted by the ghost of Mayer Amschel Rothschild that just passed by the window (booga booga!), the republicrats are sneaking out the back door with that coin collection we were counting on for our retirement. No matter, since according to this article we will soon be battling our neighbors in the street for that case of Span they have squirreled away in the basement.
Agree with the Ldot editor comment. Something is indeed going on. And what they have in mind for us is bad. Real bad. Think Rome in 410, or Jews in Jerusalem watching that cloud of dust getting bigger on the horizon over in the direction of Babylon. But these guys will lose. It is inevitable. And they haven´t got the first inkling of a clue why. They will never get it. They can´t get it. Educated beyond their abilities, every last one of them. They will be left muttering "what went wrong?" in their prison cells.
Please understand the plan: Push against the "privileged" in every wat. Pressure them financially. Humiliate them. Push against traditional moral values. Like the Founding Fathers, we will suffer tremendous violation without a violent response.
But one in a million can be counted on to flip out, to respond with justified rage, but perhaps with a level of violence that will easily be portrayed as "extremist" or "lunatic fringe."
The progressive establishment then ramps up the intrusions to the point that 2-5 percent can be provoked to violence. Once again, whether proportional and reasonable or not, it will be portrayed by the MSM as "extremist" "treasonous," etc.
My emphatic advice as always is to keep your powder dry. Clean your gun, resolve to use it ONLY against tyranny. Don´t wimp out when the fighting in the streets actually begins. We may yet avoid bloodshed.
I don´t know what I believe but the article is chilling.
Lately trolls all post propaganda with the same words, when challenged merely repeat them. There is no way to break thru their trances, not worth trying.
I propose IGNOREING them. Hard to do but they are not trolling for clarification or facts and it is wasted keystrokes and playing into their plan, to enlighten them.
If unable to restrain from responding with clarifications, address those clarifications, facts, to a fellow conservative, as an informational or clarifying comment about the article. I will not address anything directly to the trolling ´cyber warrior´ but if they respond to me, tell them that I was not addressing them, and they should mind their own business. (or crawl back into their hole, or whatever floats your personal boat). Addressing them a ´Cyber Warrior´ or some interesting play on that name should be done every time.
If there is anything to the ´Cyber Warrior´ plan, eventually we may learn more about it from their responses. If there isn´t, eventually they will realize that we consider ´Cyber Warrior´ to be an insult and not a compliment.
Oh for Pete´s sake, something IS going on and it doesn´t need Cyber Warriors for Obama to make the inevitable economic collapse occur. Please go to www.usdebtclock.org and take about a minute to watch the numbers go up real fast. WE, you and I and me and you do nothing but elect people who make sure those numbers keep going up real fast while they come up with ridiculous "concerns" like debt ceilings to make them sound smart. Because we elect people who make sure we light our afterburners toward insolvency, we WILL eventually become insolvent. Now if DHS is trying to figure out how to handle the inevitable with Cyber Warriors for Obama, they´re not going to be very effective when NO ONE can afford the electricity to Cyber a cheese doodle let alone computer users. Since we´re more concerned about the pimples on Justin Bieber and the cellulite on Madonna, yes, eventually we will be overtaken and probably from a LARGE and powerful government to which we´ve lip-locked ourselves to. Wow, what a conspiracy and more so, what a surprise it can be figured out sans a Cyber Warriors for Obama handbook. Please pass the tinfoil.
What better way to suppress free speech than to put somebody out there saying these things. They don´t even have to lift a finger as we all go scurrying under the bed. We may have nothing to fear but fear.
I guess I´ve gotten pretty cynical. If I´m wrong and this is really happening, then they´ll have to drag this old lady out of her house in her pajamas. Ooooo. What a bunch of big ole mean bullies.
Reading and knowing stuff like this makes me want to connect dots....
Obama seems to be setting us up. He will push and push, hoping one of us snaps. Economics, race, whatever it takes to instigate serious conflict, because WE are unreasonable and violent (and armed). Then he can go down in history (he thinks) as the next Lincoln, presiding over the next civil war and (finally) freeing the blacks (who are still enslaved, he thinks, but perhaps only to him), and then rewrite the Constitution, and thus history.
Sound nutty? Connect the dots yourself. We have tried to buy more ammo lately, and there is a huge backlog of orders pending. A local gun store finally got a semi-truck shipment in, and it contained 6 ... SIX ... boxes of .22´s. Hundreds of boxes were ordered.
SIX. For a large big-box retail outlet. This administration is buying up the outstanding stock - maybe not to use against us, but certainly so we can´t (they think) use it against them.
(Meanwhile, all, if not most, of the recent irrational shootings have been committed by liberals. Where´s the call to shutter MSNBC?)
I think the economy could be destabalized quite easily and that is where it could begin. Whether this could lead to a civil war would take too much uncertainty as to how it would all turn out or even occur(about like predicting how a handful of coins when dropped would be heads or tails),but the colapse of the economy could be sufficient to destroy our country.
#30 is a troll, probably a cyber warrior. Ignore it. As for mysterious deaths, here are a few: Andrew Breitbart undoubtedly, plus the Los Angeles coroner who examined him, Ridley Scott´s younger brother Tony, the very young MIT hacker, and all of those SEALs. Heartbreaking. Consider the generals who are being resigned or forced out by scandals which aren´t very scandalous.
Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE), apparently pleased with the ouster of the former President Mohamed Morsy, have approved $8 billion in aid to Egypt on Tuesday. The Saudi funds comprise a $2 billion central bank deposit, $2 billion in energy products, and $1 billion in cash, the Saudi Finance Minister Ibrahim Alassaf told Reuters. (Snip) The rise of Mohamed Morsy´s Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt since 2011 has unsettled most Gulf Arab states, including the UAE, which feared it would embolden Islamists at home. Morsy became president a year ago in Egypt´s first freely contested election.
The second suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings was taken into custody Friday night, bringing to an end a massive manhunt in the tense Massachusetts capital worried by warnings the man was possibly armed with explosives. After announcing the arrest on Twitter, Boston police tweeted: “Captured!!! The hunt is over. The search is done. The terror is over. And justice has won. Suspect in custody.” (Snip) Police were alerted to his whereabouts by a man who went outside after authorities lifted an order for residents to stay inside during the manhunt. The man saw blood on a boat in the
There were few complaints at the Woodruff polls as South Carolina´s new voter photo ID requirement was enforced for the first time in Spartanburg County. The re-do election for mayor in Woodruff is the first Spartanburg County election since the photo ID requirement went into effect Jan. 1. The law requires voters to show a S.C. driver´s license, Department of Motor Vehicles ID card, voter registration card with photo, federal military ID or a United States passport to cast a ballot. (Snip) The law was passed in 2012 as a measure to combat voter fraud, according to proponents.
To the world beyond the Beltway, it might not mean much that Bob Woodward of the famed Watergate duo went public with his recent White House run-in. This would be an oversight. (Snip) Distrust of media, encouraged by alternative media seeking to enhance their own standing, has become a tool useful to the very powers the Fourth Estate was constitutionally endowed to monitor. When the president can bypass reporters to reach the public, it is not far-fetched to imagine a time — perhaps now? — when the state controls the message.
There are two stories circulating around Bob Woodward this morning. (Snip) But the White House also wanted the issue to disappear until after the election, so in conjunction with Congress it proposed (and the President specifically endorsed) an enforcement mechanism called sequestration. In exchange for agreeing to a package of $1.2T in cuts with no revenues as a failsafe, Republicans agreed to raise the debt limit high enough that it would not be reached until after the election. The significant point is that the trigger for sequestration was not the same date as the implementation date.
This breaking story is now on Breitbart: Ofa Email: Attack Congressional Republicans on Sequester First, let us revisit the description of Organizing for Action given to us this week by White House Insider: “Well just look under the slimy rock of his Organizing for Action group. The are all 501’nd up now and starting out with millions of donations and the single biggest voter database in the history of American politics. (Snip) It’s global. It’s tied in with the U.N., climate change, gun control, healthcare, taxation, global taxation, currency, education, poverty, hunger, they got every big name item involved
This just in from our Republican Insider, who has been very busy of late regarding the impending sequestration conflict that is being played out 24/7 by the Mainstream Media and the Obama White House. (Snip) Word of that compromise got out and reached the White House. I am guessing it was someone working for Reid who relayed that information. Regardless, it was the very next day that a staffer for one of the Senators working the compromise deal received word from Legislative Affairs to not under any circumstances continue to produce a compromise, or publicize any such deal.
I have never been much of a conspiracy theorist. For me it was always Oswald by himself from the Texas School Book Depository and nothing in the intervening fifty years has disabused me of this notion. For the most part, I’m an Occam’s Razor kind of guy — the most obvious explanation is likely to be true. (Snip) To put it bluntly, Occam’s Razor has moved. Things that were once possibilities now seem almost certainties to me. Principal among those is that Obama’s academic records are perpetually unavailable for a reason — and that reason is most likely that they reveal
One of President Obama´s chief political assets has been his ability to excite young people like almost no politician in history. But the days of America´s youth fawning over the president are over. A new Harvard University Institute of Politics poll released Wednesday confirms what other surveys have shown in recent months: Millennials have soured on Obama so much this year that their opinion of him largely mirrors the American public´s. Even though Obama does not ever have to face another election, he should be worried about the findings for a couple of reasons, which we will dive into momentarily.
A stunning new study unveiled on Fox News´ Hannity finds that President Barack Obama’s White House calendar records just one face-to-face meeting between Obama and his Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in the more than three-and-a-half years leading up to the disastrous Obamacare launch. The startling statistic comes from a new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) analysis of Obama’s own official White House calendar, as well as the Politico presidential calendar, and raises new questions about Obama’s executive leadership and management throughout the implementation of his singular legislative achievement. More alarming still, the president’s schedule lists 277 private
[Video] President Obama on Wednesday declared that addressing income inequality would be the focus of “all” of the White House’s efforts “for the rest of my presidency.” In a sweeping address that touched on raising the minimum wage, investing in infrastructure and ending tax breaks for the wealthy, Obama warned that the American economy has become “profoundly unequal,” declaring economic mobility the “challenge of our time.” “The combined trends of increasing inequality and decreasing mobility pose a fundamental threat to the American dream, our way of life, and what we stand for around the globe,” he said in an hour-long
Just over two weeks ago, MSNBC host Martin Bashir delivered a harsh piece of commentary that culminated in the suggestion that someone should “s-h-i-t” in former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin‘s (R-AK) mouth. Bashir offered an abject apology on his next broadcast, but a chorus of critics continued to demand action against the host. After a reported “vacation” for the host earlier this week, Bashir announced, Wednesday afternoon, that MSNBC and Martin Bashir are parting ways. Here’s the statement from Martin Bashir, via email: After making an on-air apology, I asked for permission to take some additional time out around the Thanksgiving holiday. Upon
Amid an array of “knock-out” attacks against a number of Jews in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights neighborhood, a city councilwoman pointed to the success of the Jewish community as triggering the aggression. Councilwoman-elect Laurie Cumbo emphasized that while she “admire[s] the Jewish community immensely” for its work ethic, black teens may see it differently. “While I personally regard this level of tenacity, I also recognize that for others, the accomplishments of the Jewish community triggers feelings of resentment, and a sense that Jewish success is not also their success,” Cumbo, who was recently elected, wrote in a letter. Chief among the issues
America is facing a wave of strikes by its fast-food workers on Thursday a day after Barack Obama warned that inequality in the USA had soared to the point that it now posed "a fundamental threat to the American dream". Low-paid workers in McDonalds, Kentucky Fried Chicken and other fast-food outlets in 100 cities across America were due to start rolling strikes to protest at the low level of America´s $7.25 (£4.45) federal minimum wage. The strikes are the latest part of a mushrooming publicity campaign for higher wages among those working so-called "McJobs", with fast-food restaurants seen as a
