Adam Kokesh, founder and host of "Adam vs. The Man", proposed recently to conduct a mass display of civil disobedience with regard to Washington D.C. and the utterly fucking retarded disregard for individual rights there with regard to the 2nd Amendment. The idea is simple: a group of individuals, some of whom will be armed with rifles (loaded, but slung across their backs), and some with cameras (to document the event outside of mainstream media channels), will meet on the Virginia side of a bridge going over to D.C. and go across that bridge. Kokesh intends for this to be an event that forces the D.C. establishment to show itself for what it is- a tyrannical group.
I would advise anyone considering this to not participate. Kokesh's event is nothing more than a foolish attempt by a reckless idealist to create the perfect opportunity for the Thralls of Empire to create the perfect pretext to establish a national state of emergency using Kokesh and his march as the excuse. All it takes is for one "accidental" discharge (which need not be an actual discharge; just a recording of one will do), and all of a sudden there is a firefight that will result in most of the marchers getting slaughtered and the remainder being declared Enemy Combatants (as per the NDAA of 2013) and subsequently disappeared into places like Gitmo. That's the way to failure, and we're smarter than that.
In short, this is a show of brain-melting stupidity. Don't do it.
Yes, I have a very good reason: you will not win by playing Empire's game. You want to win? Don't confront the Thralls at all. Walk away from Omelas. Get off the grid. Build a newer, superior way that gets what you want to do done better than any of Empire's offerings. Don't comply with Empire, and that includes making noise about it; going about your way quietly will produce far better results than making lots of noise and picking fights that don't need to be fought. What Kokesh wants is to play Empire's game, and he'll lose (as he does every other time he does this sort of thing), wasting time and resources that could have been better spent seeking out alternatives and promoting them to his audience.
Empire falls fastest when we don't feed it, and Kokesh seeks to feed it. Don't be a sucker.

It's Mother's Day here in the United States of America.
I'm spending much of today with my mother. Staying grounded is a big party of making Empire fall, so I'm passing on a big post today.
It's important to keep your ties to the things that matter in this life. You've got to remember why you're doing this, and not get consumed by the struggle and instead become one of those folks who become defined by it instead. I'm taking my own advice, and spending time with the people that matter.
Next week I'll be back with more.

The problem is simple: there are far too many people who believe that they actually have a say in how others may go about their business. No adult has any say in what any other adult may do. This applies to government, because no government is lawful if it exercises powers that the individuals cannot delegate because said individuals lack the very powers so claimed. (Therefore, no government--or any other creation of Man--may do anything other than what an individual may do and remain within the one true law of Nature.)
You do not have the right to control what others may do with their bodies. This includes what property they acquire, what they do to acquire that property, or what they do with that property once they have it. You have to prove that you have been harmed--that your body or your property got damaged--by the one you seek to control (not "may", not "could", but "did") and therefore violated the Non-Aggression Principle. If you can do that, then what you are seeking is remedy and that is a valid expression of Natural Law.
This makes drug prohibition, gun control, marriage prohibition, blue laws, and all other forms of irrational control pathology unlawful--Crimes Against Humanity--and therefore null and void. There is no obligation to comply with anything that violates Natural Law. If you insist otherwise, then you are wrong; other adults are not your problem, as they are not your dependents, so I recommend that you take those impulses and drown them in the bathtub. If you let go of such impulses, then you also let go of one of Empire's most common infection avenues and what you get in return is the freedom that comes from a cleaner mental and spiritual state.
Will this solve all problems? No. It will reduce them down to a manageable number, and it will make it easier for you to recognize the problems that do come your way. Part of making Empire fall is rooting out its hooks in you, and that means working on yourself. It's necessary work, so do it and get it over with as soon as you can. Make Empire fall.

It did not take long for the larger dimensions surrounding the Boston Marathon Bombing to come out from behind the shadows. Sibel Edmonds--founder of Boiling Frogs Post--is the first to come forth with the larger picture that makes sense of the narrative offered by the U.S. Federal government. What the video below goes over is her take on the information linking Tamerlain Tsarnaev with extremist Muslim groups in the Caucasus region (specifically, in Chechnya) and how it leads to a backdoor deal between the United States and Russia with regard to intervention in Syria.
I can see that she's on to something here. Within days of the Boston attack, Russian security services round up over 140 alleged militants in that region. Furthermore, American media are now playing up the entire family's ties to these same networks of militants--pay attention to the language and images used in mainstream reporting--and the rhetoric is now shifting from portraying these groups as resisting Russian tyranny to being the region's Al-Qaida network. Since the previous aim--using the bombings to smear domestic dissidents, leading to an internal crackdown--didn't work due to immediate and massive Internet-based media counter-programming the Anglo-American Establishment have decided that they need to use this to accomplish another aim.
That aim is the destruction of Syria and the Assad regime. Reports are now coming in that chemical weapons are used in Syria. Who's using them varies by the outlet; mainstream ones, following the desires of the Establishment, claim (without independently-verifiable proof) that Assad loyalists did it. Rivals and independents claim that this is the so-called "Free Syrian Army". The Establishment wants Assad gone because he's in the way of Israeli as well as American, British (and, like it or not, Commonwealth) interests; Syria is one of the few nation-states left with an economy not yoked to the international banking system (i.e. a state-owned central bank, as with Iran), and he's an enemy of Israel. With him gone, and a new puppet regime installed, Iran's encirclement is complete- and Iran well knows this to be true.
The only serious problem for the Establishment is Russia, which has interests in Syria and has intervened so far to check the Establishment. However, Russia can be bought off; instead of cash, what the Establishment can offer is to cut off support for the militants in the Caucasus region (groups that CIA and MI6 formed, fund and exploit as disposable assets to be used until they become expendable- and this is one such time) and let Russian security get at them with a free hand. The Establishment knows that it can rebuild such groups at any time, so burning this lot is no true loss to them; Russia gets to clean out a problem area in its sphere of influence, which means reallocating its political capital to more pressing matters, so the Kremlin wins what it wants. What we're seeing now is that the deal is likely in place; notice the lack of aid to the brothers' parents by the Russian government, which would not be the case if the Establishment had not struck such a deal, as well as increasing media attention on Syria and the return of the drumbeat prior to open military action. Redeployment of American military assets (with some aide by other allied states) is soon to happen unless this media meme gets shut down now- and this means exposing it.
Ms. Edmonds--with some additional context by Mimi al-Laham (embedded below)--is on the ball here, and her writings at Boiling Frogs Post should be read for additional analysis and information. (Yes, it's from Infowars; do as I did- skip the man-chatter and focus on what she's saying.)
The work ain't done yet. Keep at it. Empire must fall.

On Monday, April 15th 2013, two bombs went off near the finish line of the 2013 Boston Marathon. Three people died, and 183 people received injuries. I won't go into the details of the facts as they are known as of this post, for I see no reason to duplicate Wikipedia's efforts. Instead, I want to bring to your attention the timeline surrounding the narrative told about this event.
In the three days between April 15th and April 18th, when the F.B.I. held a press conference wherein the pictures of the two young Chechen men later identified as Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the mainstream corporate media (and its echoes in the Public Broadcasting System) put forth assertions of other commonly-claimed threats to public security that competent investigators consistently reveal to be half-truths at best.
The initial push attempted to frame a narrative about the bombing that put the blame on conservatives and right-wing reactionaries, invoking Oklahoma City. MSNBC, CNN and Fox all went this way during those first three days and so did the talk shows and nightly news shows. Talk radio would go along with this, with some segments seeding the idea of the other go-to option (a foreigner, or sufficiently-foreign citizen, with ties to entities said to be hostile to the United States). What happened during these first three days was unlike previous events dubbed "terrorism" in that the technology advances in recent years allowed people like you to immediately get in on the investigation and produce actionable results within hours.
One of the results is that the first narrative, the "crazy militia white guy" one, went down the crapper almost as soon as it got out there because people started to pull up photographs of plain-clothed mercenaries operating in pairs all over the Boston Marathon course. This later came out to be employees of Craft International, a company of mercenaries organized by the late Chris Kyle, and despite the Infowars gang hijacking all of that work as well as all of the credit, the population disbelieved that initial narrative. Instead, searches of the term "false flag" went up like a rocket headed for the Moon, and both this doubt about government involvement as well as persistent doubt over the role of paid mercenaries remain even after the capture of one Tsarnaev brother and the death of the other one (the one that is likely the leader of the pair).
So, with the MIT bombings, the shoot-out and subsequent manhunt (complete with a "lockdown" that was soft martial law in all but name) for the aforementioned brothers, the Establishment switched to the backup narrative and are now slowly seeding the idea that these two brothers are radicalized Muslims out to kill (fellow) Americans in the name of God. Yet, again, the population intervened; immediately, the family went into denial mode, but instead of a blanket denial that makes the parents look like traumatized fools they went after the F.B.I. immediately saying that their sons had been in contact with said agency for years; this coupled with reports that Russian Intelligence asked the F.B.I. to investigate the elder (dead) brother for ties to Muslim terrorist syndicates in the Caucasus region (which Russia reaches into).
Yet, away from the drone of mainstream media, the doubt about this being a false flag operation persists. Exactly what is going on is yet unclear, but already the Establishment exploited the events to get the Imperialist CISPA bill passed in the House of Representatives. (However, getting it out of the Senate is now much harder; grassroots and netroots organization against it is already in high gear and producing pressure that can't be ignored.) The one brother yet alive cannot speak due to gunshot wounds to his throat, and he's sufficiently wounded that even if he can write his words cannot be taken as being without coercion or manipulation by the Establishment to ensure his conviction- and that's assuming that he doesn't get rendered to Guantanamo Bay.
What is clear, however, is that--for the first time--there is significant popular resistance to mainstream corporate media attempts to shape and control the narrative, and that it's due entirely to the Internet. Information flows so freely now that it can be disseminated before a press secretary can give an official release, compelling those that occupy elected offices to respond and thus stealing the initiative from the Establishment for the first time in a very long time indeed.
Going forward, while this case matters, it is not all that matters. CISPA matters. Further events--which may also manifest the pattern qualities of a staged event--may also be attempted (since the gun control push initiated by the Sandy Hook event failed) to revive policy objectives via the same practice of scaring the population into doing the things that the Establishment wants in order to acquire the support needed to get bad things through before critical thinking kicks in- but that is now getting obviously harder and harder to do. Expect, therefore, attempts to seize the Internet to become more vicious and commonplace in future days. With it, we're making Empire fall- and, as I said previously, that's when Empire is most dangerous.
We're waking up now. Soon it will reach critical mass, and that's when the endgame begins.
