Parents Get Censored & Shushed Like Children at Meeting on Censorship

Have you bitten your fingernails today? Hopefully, you have saved room for when you watch this. If you’re a reasonable parent with a student in the public school system and notice a blatant violation – unfortunately this absurd behavior is something you might encounter from the district school board. That is, if they are intertwined with an agenda.

Michael Krieger of Liberty Blitzkreig reported the background on the Naples, Florida incident.

In order to give you some background on the issue, see the Letter to the Editor he wrote to the Naples Daily News on 1/28 to say what he was prevented from saying at the 1/20 School Board Workshop…
A quick synopsis of the letter involves parents who wished to speak out about premature curriculum approval that involved blatant historical fallacies (that you would probably detect immediately as propaganda) in text books. Seriously, that’s it. They wanted to point out the problems. For getting involved and wanting to rationally discuss the textbook problems (like the history book claiming the government can informally change the Constitution or the elimination of the U.S. on a world map) they were allegedly called “Nazi book burners” and “narrow-minded, racist Bible-thumpers.”

A recap of how the actual January Collier County School Board Workshop went in the video, shows that the parents never made it that far. They weren’t allowed to direct any comments to “approvers” or anyone involved or anyone who was using authority to silence the parents. This extended to absurd levels when it turned out that parents would be “shushed” like children for using any pronouns at all or referring to any human beings – as opposed to generalized, vague, watered-down topics. This wasn’t just a matter of keeping the peace – this was censorship via the same maturity of a schoolyard bully taunting “quit hittin’ yourself! quit hittin’ yourself!”

Also note the psychological effect of the parents having to look up to the chairwoman to make their statements….

The Language of Rights and Privileges

Have you noticed how governments want to own your language, so they can more easily manipulate you into giving up your rights and resources?

All Caps Names –

For example, Bob Podolsky is a real person, and has all sorts of natural rights. Yet every single piece of correspondence coming from the BORG such as Bank statements, Drivers Licenses, IRS correspondence, Traffic Tickets has my name in all capital letters. I know these people went to school and learned the same grammar I did. Why is my name is all CAPS? Somehow, BOB PODOLSKY, became a vassal of the state. The argument, the all caps name is not the real person, has been thrown out as frivolous in court, yet there must be a reason why is it done this way.

Right to Travel –

Similarly, I have a right to travel on public roads by riding a conveyance under my control. This is something that human beings have done since the domestication of animals, somehow adding a motor to power it and voilà, the state re-names the conveyance a Motor Vehicle and I am now a Driver. Thus the state converts my “right” into a “privilege” and grants itself the “right” to force me to pay for these privileges by buying a title, a license plate, a driver’s license, and specified insurance. If you don’t fill out forms and pay, this magically grants a ‘right” to an armed group of thugs in costumes to beat you up, put you in a cage, steal your “property” and fine you.

Right to Migrate –

Since time began, humans have had the right to move to wherever they pleased, based on resources, climate, scenery or religious beliefs. That’s how the the American Indians got to the western Hemisphere, Australians and New Zealanders got to Oceania, Caucasians moved to Europe and the Pilgrims got to Plymouth Rock. They didn’t like where they were, and they moved. However the government calls the right to move, a privileged known as “immigration”. If you don’t fill out forms and pay, this magically grants a ‘right” to an armed group of thugs in costumes to beat you up, put you in a cage, steal your “property” and fine you.

Right to Property –

It used to be that a human being had the right to own the land they live on. The Government changed this into a privilege by converting all own-able land into “Real Estate” You acquire the privilege of being a “tenant” on your Government controlled Bank owned land. It is impossible to own it. Want to test that? Stop paying the property tax. If you don’t fill out forms and pay, this magically grants a ‘right” to an armed group of thugs in costumes to beat you up, put you in a cage, steal your “property” and fine you.

….Natural Person –

….Right to Eat –

….About “Authority” –

According to Larken Rose, whose philosophy I much admire, the whole concept of “authority” exists but for one purpose, to fool the public into complying willingly with the demands of a particular class of people who consider themselves our “betters”, our “superiors”, our modern “nobility”, and ultimately our “masters”. In their eyes, the rest of us are of no value to them except as a source of endless plunder – and they are forever inventing new excuses to abuse the rest of us financially, socially, taking away our natural liberties, stealing our property, and enacting violence against us at their will.

While they claim this behavior is necessary in order to “protect the public”, the reality is that this notion is a total fiction, that in fact the real purpose of most of todays laws is merely to excuse the actions of our gargantuan “plunderers league” – who do to the rest of us whatever they want, up to and including killing us, with complete impunity. Surely the governments of the world collectively comprise the biggest, most powerful organized crime syndicate the world has ever known – egged on I suspect by previously existing crime syndicates that joined ranks with them – the Mafia, I believe, being a case in point.

Walk into a courthouse anywhere, and at any rank, and consider that the salaries of everyone working in the building are paid for with plunder – money stolen from ordinary folks in punishment for doing the things we all have a right to do. And their only “authority” for doing this is the fact that someone who supposedly “represents” you, wrote on a piece of paper that they had the “right” to plunder you….

Lingua Franca: Weapons Of Mass Corruption

By David McElroy – OnlyWay.com –

A Lingua Franca is a bridge language between cultures, a language that is a social currency often rife with an amalgamation of varying languages and concepts. You might think of “pig latin”, or “spanglish”. All too often, words are used with an intention to deceive and bring us across a bridge we would not normally cross. Think politics.

There is a story I once heard a communist teacher tell children in a socialist-inspired “Free School” that bears witness to the foundation of the evil empire we now see infesting every aspect of our life. It was a simple tale of coerced behavior couched in a deceitfully charitable offering to desperate people, a model of how words can be used as weapons of mass corruption in entertaining impressionable children.

“Some people were struggling to cross a hot, barren desert under the scorching sun, having lost their way after surviving a crash. They had run out of water and food, and some had perished along the way. They were faint and stumbling across the blistering desert sand when, lo and behold, they see a mansion surrounded by green trees and sparkling fountains!

A party of men ride out from the big house to meet them, and give them water. The exhausted thirsty people are taken to the palatial home with offers of hospitality. The master of the house invites them to a feast, after they have bathed and put on the clean clothes he provides. They are overjoyed at the refreshing opportunity.

But as they approach the magnificent feast so nicely set upon a long table, they find that all the forks, knives, and spoons, are six feet long! The hungry people ask how they can eat with such outlandish silverware, and proceed to eat with their hands. They are sternly warned they cannot eat with their hands at the master’s table, but must use the very long silverware to feed the person across the table from them. Nobody can feed them-selves with the long utensils, but everyone can feed the person opposite from them across the table. In this manner all the people enjoyed the master’s feast.”

Through language we see how the worm turns, how words are used as weapons of mass corruption. Words, and their perceived definitions, shape a person’s frame of mind. As a man who has studied the ancient scriptures, I know that many people will read the Holy Bible and understand many words in a modern parlance that is not at all what the writers of that scripture meant. The definitions had changed over the years, unknown to many. We can see a similar twisting of words in modern America. Compare definitions in the original Webster’s Dictionary of 1828 with what a current dictionary will list, or the way politicians will use language. Check the definitions of words in legal documents or court proceedings and compare those words’ meanings in plain English. Deception is intended!

Elitists who ride herd over the media, including book publishers who print dictionaries and textbooks, are gatekeepers who engineer the channels whose lines of thought we are to stay within. They deftly modify, redefine, and twist words and phrases, promoting certain concepts that are politically correct, while they occlude certain concepts forbidden to us. Certain words are cast in a strange light to hide meaning from our minds, and can change meaning from one discipline or venue to another. Others are become quite common.

Look to Humpty Dumpty in Lewis Carroll’s Through the Looking-Glass (1872), where he discusses semantics and pragmatics with Alice.[20]
“I don’t know what you mean by ‘glory,’ ” Alice said.
Humpty Dumpty smiled contemptuously. “Of course you don’t—till I tell you. I meant ‘there’s a nice knock-down argument for you!’ ”
“But ‘glory’ doesn’t mean ‘a nice knock-down argument’,” Alice objected.
“When I use a word,” Humpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, “it means just what I choose it to mean—neither more nor less.”
“The question is,” said Alice, “whether you can make words mean so many different things.”
“The question is,” said Humpty Dumpty, “which is to be master—that’s all.”
Alice was too much puzzled to say anything, so after a minute Humpty Dumpty began again. “They’ve a temper, some of them—particularly verbs, they’re the proudest—adjectives you can do anything with, but not verbs—however, I can manage the whole lot! Impenetrability! That’s what I say!”

Who is your master? How impenetrable is the language you encounter? Do you see why the masters of many in history have preferred illiterate servants? Are you misled about the meaning of words? Is the “Truth Movement” deceived by some literary ploys?

I could use this theme to rail against how Obama’s Common Core curriculum for public schools is twisting children‘s minds in the socialist manner, or how lawyers and judges use language deceitfully to entrap people in the legal system of misdirection. But let’s focus on the simple little socialist fairy tale about the desperate people in the desert. It was a tale told to impressionable young children who were not supposed to be thinking.

The story opens with “Some people were struggling to cross a hot, barren desert under the scorching sun, having lost their way after surviving a crash.” They had endured a crash and struggled across a “scorched earth”. Why had they crashed? We are not told. All were exhausted, thirsty, hungry, and faltering. Some had perished.

Then they can scarcely believe their eyes when they see a palatial home surrounded by big green trees, gardens and sparkling fountains. Was it just a mirage?

NO! “A party of men ride out from the big house to meet them, and give them water.” Those of the “master’s house” have been looking for them, and bring them in to him. They are offered hospitality, and “They are overjoyed at the refreshing opportunity.” Do the master’s men normally look out to find people in the barren desert? Might the struggling people be wise to be wary of a stranger’s hospitality? Note that the master provides a bath and clean clothes for all of the desperate people. He is a provider.

When they come to the master’s feast, they find all the eating utensils six feet long! So the famished people start to eat with their hands, finding the silverware unusable. “They are sternly warned they cannot eat with their hands at the master’s table, but must use the very long silverware to feed the person across the table from them.” The hungry people are denied the simplest natural means, their hands. They are forced to use strange artificially imposed utensils, as the master imposes his authority most “sternly”! People will eat at his table in the manner he chooses, or go back to the “scorched earth”! They are told that it is in the best interest of all if they use the overly long utensils to feed the person across the table from them, and thereby all are fed. Nobody is permitted to feed themselves, but they can feed others using long-range means dictated by the master of the manor. Why is the master insisting on such ridiculous table manners? Why are the people denied the use of the simplest natural means of feeding themselves? Hmmmmnn…..

Could it be the master caused the crash to cause suffering people to be taken in by his offers of hospitality… and captured in a web of deceit where they must depend upon his providing the necessities of life or risk or death in the land he made barren? Does government often practice a “scorched earth” policy to guarantee submission? Are we being stripped of the “natural means” of providing for ourselves? Are we suffering a war of attrition that leaves us injured, exhausted, desperate, hungry, and faltering? Are socialist global policies denying us the use of our local resources and promoting long-range trade, where we are forbidden to help ourselves while we are forced to support those in distant places? Is it true that “In this manner all the people enjoyed the master’s feast”? Or, are we seeing poverty and enslavement assimilating the people of the world? Can you see the socialist deceit that teaches children to simply accept the master’s “hospitality”?

Who is your master? Be wary, question authority. Think for yourself. If you are looking for Truth, Justice, and Liberty, you will find it at the feet of my master, Jesus Christ. He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. His yoke is light, His way just. His love is great, and he sets His people free to enjoy their own houses and gardens.

Should We Just Follow Orders? Rules of Engagement for Resisting the Police State

By John W. Whitehead – Speak Truth To Power –

“Let your motto be resistance! resistance! Resistance! No oppressed people have ever secured their liberty without resistance.”—Abolitionist Henry Highland Garnet

The perils of resisting the police state grow more costly with each passing day, especially if you hope to escape with your life and property intact. The thing you must remember is that we’ve entered an age of militarized police in which we’re no longer viewed as civilians but as enemy combatants.

Take, for example, Mary Elizabeth VandenBerg who was charged with disturbing the peace, a crime punishable by up to 93 days in jail and a $500 fine, for daring to vocalize her frustrations over a traffic ticket by reading a prepared statement to the court clerk and paying her $145 traffic ticket with 145 one-dollar bills. VandenBerg was also handcuffed, tasered and pepper sprayed for “passively” resisting police by repeatedly stopping and talking to them and stiffening her arms. The incident, filmed by VandenBerg’s brother, is now the subject of a lawsuit.

Zachary Noel was tasered by police and charged with resisting arrest after he questioned why he was being ordered out of his truck during a traffic stop. “Because I’m telling you to,” the officer replied before repeating his order for Noel to get out of the vehicle and then, without warning, shooting him with a taser through the open window. The encounter, recorded with a cell phone by Noel’s friend in the passenger seat, offers a particularly chilling affirmation of how little recourse Americans really have when it comes to obeying an order from a government official or police officer, even if it’s just to ask a question or assert one’s rights….

Clearly, the language of freedom is no longer the common tongue spoken by the citizenry and their government. With the government having shifted into a language of force, “we the people” have been reduced to suspects in a surveillance state, criminals in a police state, and enemy combatants in a military empire.

In such an environment, as every resistor from Martin Luther King Jr. and on down the line has learned, there is always a price to be paid for challenging the status quo. Then again, the price for not challenging the status quo is even worse: outright tyranny, the loss of our freedoms, and a totalitarian regime the likes of which the world has never seen before.
