This article and interview is from 2013 and we have come a long way. Now in 2018 we can see the open threat of control, manipulation, social credit guidance and more. Time for reflection and meditation, to feel in our hearts what we really wish and were we wish to go in which kind of future!
Michael McKibben: Facebook is built on technology stolen from us.
Article by Ave Tampere / Editor
(Estonia Daily) – from October 14, 2013 4:35 PM EET
Leader Technologies’ founder and CEO Michael McKibben talks to Eesti Päevaleht about the row with Facebook, and the security issues facing the Internet today.
On October 10-11, 2013, Michael McKibben was a keynote speaker at the Pärnu Leadership Conference 2013 – “A Matter of Faith.” About 400 of Estonia’s leaders in government, commerce and industry were in attendance. Pärnu is a popular resort city on Estonia’s Baltic coast. McKibben spoke about his work with Estonians in the late 1970’s and early 1980’s who taught him about leadership, faith, courage and perseverance in the face of extreme hardship.
A moment before the opening of the 25th Estonian Song Festival (2009) at the Tallinn Song Festival Grounds. It is one of the largest amateur choral events in the world. In 1987, 300,000 people (more than a quarter of all Estonians) gathered in this mammoth outdoor concert venue to assert national independence and protest continued Soviet occupation. Photo:Wikipedia.
His friends were systematically persecuted and harassed by a militantly atheistic Communist government; some were even imprisoned and murdered by the police state.
That collaboration resulted in an unimaginable ideological thaw in which members of the Supreme Soviet and Moscow’s cultural elite promoted and distributed music by Living Sound, an American Gospel music group, thorough the state-run Melodiyarecord label, on Soviet Central TV (CT USSR), and on the official 1980 Moscow Summer Olympic film. McKibben was Living Sound’s European Director.
McKibben, an Ohio State University engineer and professional musician, said the moral fortitude of his Estonian friends inspired him to step outside the programming molds of the 1990’s and invent what is now called “social networking.”
Estonia joined the European Union in 2004, and ranks high for press freedom, economic freedom, civil liberties and education. Estonia is often described as one of the most wired countries in Europe.
Estonia has been settled for 11,000 years. In the last millenia, Estonia has been occupied almost continuously by foreign powers, including Vikings, Germans, Swedes, Russians, Nazis and Soviets. Despite these occupations, Estonian culture and language thrived. Song festivals have played an especially important role in Estonian national identity. Estonia’s prestigious University of Tartu was founded in 1632, four years before Harvard University.
The Soviet Union occupied Estonia from the end of World War II (1945) until independence in 1991. McKibben just learned on this trip that his efforts as a part of the Living Sound musical ministry helped inspire the choirs and musicians behind Estonia’s bloodless “Singing Revolution” (1987-1991).
A member of one of those choirs, now a Tallinn harbor official, was attending the Pärnu Conference. He told McKibben that his Tallinn Oleviste choir recorded and distributed their songs on the studio equipment that McKibben and Living Sound’s British supporters helped provide 32 years ago.
In 1991, Estonia’s Soviet occupiers, then led by Mikhail Gorbachev, decided to leave Estonia rather than run their tanks over unarmed choirs. A number of Estonians told McKibben and his wife, Nancy, that their commitment to Estonia during those dark days “opened a window” of new possibility, faith and hope for them.
Ave Tempere took the Pärnu Conference opportunity to conduct this interview.
Again americans4innovation delivers a very complete insight in this social credit new system specially developped for us, the people of the world. Do you want this? Did you already think about it? Did you know about it and researched it on your own?
Here the link to their webpage full of information, videos, opinions but what I love about americans4innovations ALL BACKED UP WITH TRUE FACTS, PROVABLE!
The global rollout of 5G is well underway, and we soon may see new small cell towers near all schools, on every residential street, dispersed throughout the natural environment, and pretty much everywhere. But the safety of this technology is in serious question, and there is a raging battle to stop the taxpayer funded implementation of 5G.
The new cell network uses high-band radio frequency millimeter waves to deliver high bandwidth data to any device within line of sight.
Today’s cellular and Wi-Fi networks rely on microwaves – a type of electromagnetic radiation utilizing frequencies up to 6 gigahertz (GHz) in order to wirelessly transmit voice or data. However, 5G applications will require unlocking of new spectrum bands in higher frequency ranges above 6 GHz to 100 GHz and beyond, utilizing submillimeter and millimeter waves – to allow ultra-high rates of data to be transmitted in the same amount of time as compared with previous deployments of microwave radiation. [Source]
One of the ways 5G will enable this is by tapping into new, unused bands at the top of the radio spectrum. These high bands are known as millimeter waves (mmwaves), and have been recently been opened up by regulators for licensing. They’ve largely been untouched by the public, since the equipment required to use them effectively has typically been expensive and inaccessible. [Source]
I am so happy I took all those years in my life to travel freely, share experiences with all kinds of people and tribes and be able to move from one country or continent to the next. No social “behaviour points” necessary! Although control and harassment became normal after 9/11 it was still doable and mostly not too unpleasant.
What is been testing in China is a big choc to me, as I feel it is coming to surprise us and will be installed worldwide.
Do we want this?
please do your own research and look what Eric Schmidt is doing in China!!
A large group around Michael McKibben from Leader Technologies & Americans for Innovation are digging deep into the global network that controls our world and internet. It is interesting to see how much they discover each week, following patents, the money, contracts, companies etc. With aim4truth / american intelligence media as partner they bring uptodate information with proof.
God Bless America. On 15 February 2016, our President, speaking to a wildly enthusiastic crowd in Bluffton, South Carolina, promised that he would find out — and inform the American public — “who really knocked down the World Trade Center.”
As all engaged and informed citizens now know, the 9/11 Commission was a controlled cover-up at the same level of atrocity as 9/11 itself, and totally comparable to the Warren Commission controlled cover-up on the assassination of John F. Kennedy by Lyndon Baines Johnson, Allen Dulles, J. Edgard Hoover, and varied private sector participants as well as the government of Israel, which sent two witnesses to Dallas.
This collection of twenty-eight memoranda, most one page but a few two pages and one four pages, provide the President all he needs to know to do three big things when he gives his planned speech on 9/11 on 11 September 2018:
01 Direct the Attorney General, Jefferson Sessions, to direct the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, Geoffrey S. Berman, to act on the petition for a Grand Jury and criminal investigation into 9/11 as delivered on 10 April 2018 from the Lawyer’s Committee for 9/11 Inquiry, a 54-page petition with 57 categories of evidence about 9/11 crimes.
02 Support and call on Congress to pass — prior to the November 2018 elections — the Bobby Mcllvaine World Trade Center Investigation Act, to be completed and reported out to the President and the Public by 4 July 2019.
03 Utilize the information in this collection to inspire the expelling of the fake news media from the White House, the creation of a two-way truth channel engaging all 200 million US voters, the passage of #UNRIG Election Reform Act to give all #WalkAway voters a fair shake in a broader political system that terminates the two-party tyranny; and an end, for once and for all, of Deep State and Zionist control of the Shadow Government including the secret intelligence community that persists in advancing lies inciting assassination, defamation, and impeachment proceedings against the President.

Who Did It?
The two most shocking memoranda reveal that the WTC was condemned by 1989 and all parties including the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and the Mayor of New York City knew the buildings would have to be brought down at a cost of $2B — this provides the commercial insurance fraud motivation and the foundation for the planning of a political false flag operation years in advance; and that 9/11 was used to launder $240 billion dollars used from 1998 to 2001 for a Gold War against Russia — an economic covert war not authorized by Congress or declared to the public, in which Buzzy Krongard, John Brennan, and William Browder appear to have been the principal actors, under the direction of George H. W. Bush, Dick Cheney, and George Tenet.
All of those named are innocent until proven guilty. What this collection does is make it crystal clear to the public who has not been investigated, and why they should be.
Includes 15 minute video (the one embedded above) for the President that ends with two asks; several individual authors speaking for up to 3 minutes each with an opening and closing by editor and publisher Robert David Steele; and a long (1.5 hrs) video of everyone that includes some important testimony but uneven delivery (all at the link above).
A couple of the authors are uncomfortable with the proximity of this volume to the new volume on Sandy Hook as well as other elements of this volume with which they are not in full agreement. No author has liability in relation to the words of other contributors, front or back matter, where and how the volume is published or distributed, or how the volume is publicized. That is solely and exclusively the responsibility and authority of Robert David Steele, editor and publisher. Each author’s contribution should be appreciated in isolation, as their unique and valuable contribution to our understanding of 9/11 specifically. This volume asks the questions that have not been answered.
ROBERT STEELE: The matter of 9/11 Truth is now on the table at the White House, the National Rifle Asscoation (NRA) and the Republican National Council (RNC). Below are the three cover letters that accompanied the work shown and linked below.
Phase I ends 30 July and will result in a complete color PDF being delivered to the President by a mutual fan with direct access, and also published free online and as #33 in the Trump Revolution Series. The President will receive the contact information (cell number) for each of the authors.
Phase II will focus on the President’s planned speech for 9/11 2018, and include an international alternative media campaign to put this collection squarely in everyone’s face.
FINAL IN INDIVIDUAL PIECES (CAN USE TRANSLATE WIDGET)
As this interview of many hours took place like 15 or more yoears ago I could jus listen to it and repeat listening to it. Credo Mutwa has a beautiful heart and is a wonderful soul that has suffered a lot in this life. He speaks about the history of the ancient african culture of his tribes, what he saw, learned and which artifacts he still has in his possesion.
The inteview is done by David Icke who went to South Africa several times and they became good friends.
Yesterday I got a real serious Newsletter from my dear friend Dr. Gabriel Cousens, a holistic doctor, spiritual teacher, a man living a very spiritual structured life helping thousands of people to become healthy and fullfilled in their living on this planet. He NEVER speaks about world situations on an material political level, but does now.
Their stated goal is to censor and suppress all of us and to take power over our minds. The natural health movement and information about the dangers of vaccines is already under attack and the sale of natural health products which undermines the globalist pharmaceutical companies have already been partially banned from the internet. This is not hypothetical or speculative.
We are entering turbulent times, the birth of something new is like a human birth process, it takes time and pain and chaos.
I thank him for writing this and Mike Adams from NaturalNews too. Both guys are 100% integrity and I can be sure about that following Gabriel since 1986 and Mike since many years. So please read carefully and do your own thinking and research!

Asunto: Special Report
A Time for Action
Mike Adams, founder of naturalnews.com and an old friend through our collective work in the field of holistic health, has done an outstanding job in exposing the world-wide intent of the major internet companies to create a one-world government censorship program, which represents a much greater evil composed of principalities and powers beyond this physical plane. This one did a Facebook LIVE stream on the topic, and you can watch it on YouTube.
Dr. Cousens’ Facebook LIVE stream on the topic of Free Speech and Liberation given during evening satsang on July 17th, 2018.
Included is a summary of what this one considers to be the most salient points from Mike’s report. The points are made in Mike’s words, taken directly from the report, but added are a few comments from this one, demarcated [in brackets] to create a more peaceful tone and more universality and an expanded vision, beyond the polarity and polemics of left-wing versus right-wing politics. 97% of the text is verbatim from Mike’s report. This one’s 3% is in brackets. Additionally, included is the full report as a pdf file to download for those of you interested in reading Mike’s full expose. It’s rare for this one, as a holistic spiritual teacher, to put out information like this, but given the seriousness of the situation, it’s worth the risk in order to share and inform our readers.
In Mike’s 59-page report The Censorship Master Plan Decoded (i.e. “The Adams Report”), which outlines the blueprint for “how tech giants covertly silence online speech, and how America can fight back against corporate tech monopolists”, Mike Adams excellently outlines their techniques for doing this so that we can understand their nefarious actions that have been going on for years and their overt collusion with the Chinese, who have already established a total national censorship of the internet. This information allows us to understand that this exists and how we can counteract it. This censorship, as he clearly points out, is also about influencing our minds into a seriously false one-world government enslavement narrative.
Mike’s focus is more on the suppression of conservative free speech, whereas this one wants the big picture to be understood. The bigger picture is that they are attempting to censor us all, and while the Leftists may applaud the suppression of conservative thought, they don’t understand that they will be next. Martin Niemöller, a Protestant pastor and an outspoken public foe of Adolf Hitler, spent the last seven years of Nazi rule in concentration camps. He’s credited with the quote: “First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out, because I was not a Socialist. Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out, because I was not a Trade Unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out, because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me, and there was no one left to speak for me.”
Their stated goal is to censor and suppress all of us and to take power over our minds. The natural health movement and information about the dangers of vaccines is already under attack and the sale of natural health products which undermines the globalist pharmaceutical companies have already been partially banned from the internet. This is not hypothetical or speculative. This level of health censorship is already happening. While Christians are primarily being attacked, the Jews most likely will be next. After the word “Jesus” is scrubbed from the internet, which they are actively attempting to do, so will the word “God”. This global internet approach is setting the stage to create a Godless society. Everyone will be repressed, and all that will be left is the one-world party line, such as they already have in China for 2 billion people.
From a spiritual perspective, people have been trying to enslave other people throughout history. The attack on sovereignty (the base of the Tree of Life) is particularly important, because without sovereignty, the process of liberation is blocked. At the deepest level, beyond politics, is the massive internet censorship serving to block the liberation process of the world population that is our destiny by attempting to destroy sovereignty. This is the time to act to prevent this from happening.
Blessings to your holistic health, peace, and spiritual enlightenment.
Gabriel Cousens, MD
Today’s attacks on the First Amendment (Free Speech) are being carried out by a “triple threat” tag-team of institutions:
#1) Tech giants – carrying out the mechanics of censorship, shadow banning, “doubt interruptions” and other techniques.
#2) Establishment media – Tasked with promoting the lynch mob mentality of hysteria and hatred which is translated into widespread calls for silencing whatever voices they don’t like.
#3) Third party fact-checkers and moderators – These groups, such as the Southern Poverty Law Center, Politifact, etc., are given the task of flagging all “undesirable” political speech (from their agenda) as “hate speech,” creating the justification for tech giants to ban or deplatform such accounts without having to accept internal organizational responsibility for discriminating against selected targets.
These three “fronts” conspire to attack, defame and deplatform originators of certain types of speech.
We are now faced with a kind of perfect storm in America—a “free speech apocalypse”—where all the institutions that once called for protections of the freedom of expression are now actively conspiring to exterminate it. This coordinated attack on free speech is now taking place in plain view. The agenda is not hidden, nor is it even debatable that this is taking place. The goal is the complete abolition of all speech that globalist tech giants wish to eliminate, and these efforts have been deliberately accelerated as the 2018 mid-term elections approach, carrying out what can only be called an extreme example of election interference and a plot to defraud the United States of America from their right to free speech beyond the globalist agenda.
For example, it’s blatantly obvious that Google, Facebook, YouTube, CNN and even the ACLU are all conspiring to defraud the United States of America by silencing voices, en masse, in the run up to a critical election that may decide the fate of our nation.
The United States Congress must act. New laws must be passed and enforced that invoke the authority of the federal government to prevent dominant online platforms, which have become communication monopolies.
Censorship by tech giants is an assault on the right to exist in an online-dominated society.
The predominant argument of pro-censorship advocates largely consists of claiming that because Google, Facebook, etc., are private corporations, they can therefore engage in discriminatory censorship of any kind they wish, without restraint or regulatory oversight. This argument collapses when seen in the context of the broad recognition that participation in dominant online platforms has become essential for personal, social, and professional interactions in the modern world.
Just as citizens of fifty years ago could not meaningfully participate in society without phone or electricity service, today’s citizens cannot meaningfully participate in the modern world without an online presence, expressed through the dominant online communications platforms such as Facebook, Google, Twitter, and YouTube.
Dominant online platforms have become essential services for meaningful participation in modern society.
This is further underscored by the fact that an individual’s online presence exerts forceful and lasting influence on their personal and social life, professional life, career opportunities and freedom of expression, including the freedom to engage in political debate that may influence others in elections.
To be shadow banned by Facebook or YouTube today is as destructive to an individual’s quality of life as being surreptitiously cut off from phone and electricity services in the 1970s…. Yet no reasonable person would argue today that electricity companies, even though they are private corporations, should have to right to cut off electricity from targeted customers because the company disagrees with their politics. Similarly, internet service providers (ISPs) don’t cut off customers who use their services, even when those services are conduits for forms of expression with which the ISP may vehemently disagree.
In a society that has roundly rejected the idea that private businesses can discriminate against people based on the color of their skin, established media giants are openly demanding that private businesses now discriminate against people based on the color of their ideas.
Because of the online nature of modern life, the censorship of individuals on the dominant online platforms of open expression is an attack on their very right to participate in society. No modern person can meaningfully participate in modern social and professional interactions without an online presence on one or more social media platforms. They have become “essential services” for modern life, making them just as critical to modern survival as electricity, housing or phone service.
The tech giants now discriminating against individuals based on the color of their ideas— companies like Google, Facebook, YouTube and Twitter—have all pursued a central deception that has only now been exposed.
That deception consists of these companies launching under the false pretense of being “open platforms” that welcomed free speech from nearly anyone…. Once their dominant market position was achieved, they then started banning individuals based on the content of their ideas, deeply violating the original promise and pretense of the online service.
Online censorship is de facto denial of the right to exist in an interconnected world. These dominant internet gatekeepers enjoy market share dominance of 80% or better, in their respective categories, meaning that both content creators and content consumers have no reasonable alternative destinations from which to choose…. Through this deception, the dominant internet gatekeepers have become the de facto providers of essential infrastructure through which modern citizens carry out their personal and professional lives. To deny individuals their right to exist in modern society—by shadow banning, deplatforming, or artificially throttling their online expression—is to violate an individual’s pursuit of life, liberty, and happiness…. It is to deny their very right to exist in modern society.
Dominant online platforms have become the de facto providers of essential infrastructure through which modern citizens carry out their personal and professional lives. To maliciously censor those individuals due to the color of their speech is to deny them the right to meaningfully participate in modern society…. Because of the necessity of participation in the online world in order to pursue life, liberty, and happiness in a tech-driven society, the censorship of an individual or organization by internet gatekeepers is a de facto act of defamation against that individual or organization.
It isn’t just political speech that’s targeted, either; it’s also speech about natural health and disease prevention…. Facebook’s baseless censorship of natural health-related accounts experienced a recent uptick when Facebook banned dozens of health-oriented accounts reaching an estimated 40 million followers. As reported by Phillip Schneider at Natural Blaze (https://www. naturalblaze.com/2018/07/facebook-purges-over-80-accounts-sweeping-attack-alterna- tive-media.html), the Facebook purge of natural health websites included:
Collectively Conscious (915K followers) – Deleted on June 13th, 2018 12
Healthy Food House (3.4M followers) – Deleted on June 13th, 2018
Natural Cures Not Medicine (2.3M followers) – Deleted on June 11th, 2018
Health Awareness (2.5M followers) – Deleted on June 13th, 2018
I Want to Be 100% Organic (700K followers) – Deleted on June 13th, 2018
Organic Health (230K followers) – Deleted on June 13th, 2018
Natural Cures From Food (120K followers) – Deleted on June 13th, 2018
Conscious Life News (1.1M follower) – Deleted on June 5th, 2018
… and dozens more. It is possible that some of these accounts may have been restored, but the fact that they were banned in the first place demonstrates the important point here.
Because society has shifted away from communications in the physical world (U.S. Postal Service mail, billboards, etc.) and moved almost entirely to electronic communications and online posting, the very existence of a business, organization, or even a personal reputation depends strongly on their ability to participate in dominant online platforms without being subjected to malicious, selective censorship or shadow banning.
Censorship is the online equivalent of being personally executed; denied the right to exist or participate in an online-connected society.
The banning of online accounts can destroy an entire business (and it has, provably, in many examples). It can destroy reputations. Most importantly, from the point of view of the [globalist] tech giants, banning targeted accounts can also strongly influence future elections by silencing the speech of those whom Facebook and Google do not want to have a voice.
Losing control of the narrative means losing control over society. Maintaining monopoly control over cultural narratives is crucial for commanding primary influence over the worldview held by news consumers, whose beliefs, opinions, and “realities” are largely shaped by the news to which they are subjected…. In reality, “news” is the primary conduit through which narratives / stories are implanted into the consciousness of news consumers. These stories shape the way people think, talk, and behave in society. They even shape the way people vote…. The label of “news” is simply the cover story for what might be more accurately called a “national suggestion / influence campaign” which deliberately works to influence public opinion, distort the perception of real-world events, manipulate the minds of viewers and achieve hidden political goals….
The very fabric of our society is now being deliberately sacrificed by media and tech monopolists in their desperate, destructive quest to regain narrative control at any cost [from the alternative media]…. Control of public narratives is viewed by media monopolists as critical for controlling the masses…. “News” is the label used by media monopolists who pretend to be engaged in a public service when they are actually engaged in public indoctrination and deceptive influence campaigns…. The highest priority of news monopolists is to silence independent, opposing voices that encourage individuals to “snap out” of their numbed, passive acquiescence to mainstream news narratives…. Continued compliance to false mainstream news narratives requires ongoing, repeated indoctrination and information dominance by propagandists.
In essence, censorship of the independent media is a necessary component of the continuous (but fragile) indoctrination of the news consuming public. [This can be easily disempowered by a technique] called a “pattern interrupt,” and…. [the alternative media] is the key “interruptor” due to both the provocative [truth] of [its] content…. It is precisely this kind of combination of content and delivery that can “snap” people out of a mental slumber.
Reiterated, it takes constant repetition of disinformation to lull news consumers into a news trance, but it takes just one interrupter to break the spell and jolt people back to their senses. [We who are aligned with factual and spiritual truth can become millions of potent content interrupters of the mainstream media narrative.]
One of the pillars of the internal justifications for banning political speech is the invocation of “hate speech”…. In essence, anything the [mainstream media] wants to promote is labeled “love” [no matter whether it’s factually true or not, while those who are speaking factual truth to power are labelled as being guilty of “hate speech”]. These labels are arbitrarily assigned based entirely on tribal bias, utterly failing any legitimate test of universal rules or logic.
Essentially, [those] who run the tech giants of today almost universally believe that all opposition against their agendas is rooted in “hate” and must therefore be silenced…. Thus, the very definition of “hate” defies all attempts at a reasonable definition. It all boils down to the irrefutable realization that “hate speech” is simply any speech which contradicts the shifting narratives of the [mainstream and social media].
Whoever has the power to define “hate” and use it as justification for censorship has obtained the power to dictate the content of every opinion uttered online…. Thus, the haters have been put in charge of deciding the very definition of hate speech, and they predictably wield that authority as a weapon to punish their political enemies, whom they also hate.
The purpose of controlling the “news” is to control the narratives that strongly influence the beliefs and actions of news consumers for a multitude of purposes, including shaping the outcome of political elections…. The news establishment’s assertion that they are merely reporting facts without bias is fraudulent and deliberately deceptive.
“Fake news” is the actual business model of the establishment media monopolists, who knowingly exploit and abuse their positions of news authority to broadcast disinformation and propaganda for the purpose of covert social influence.
“Hate speech” is a fictitious fabrication invoked by the authoritarian [establishment media monopolists] to silence their targeted political enemies. There is no logically consistent definition of “hate speech” that [anyone] can describe, because no such universal standard exists. Whoever has the power to define “hate” gains the power to dictate the content of every opinion uttered online. Such power, concentrated in the hands of a biased few, is extraordinarily dangerous to any free society.
Many independent media publishers rely on email newsletters to directly reach their audience via email. However, two of the most prominent email destinations—Gmail and Yahoo Mail—systematically block emails from content sources they don’t like, halting the delivery of such emails to their email users.
….Google can exert the power to…. block that publisher’s email newsletters from being delivered to gmail.com users. This is a…. “threat” censorship regime that grants Google an alarming level of control over the delivery of communications across the internet, even to users who have specifically asked to receive such communications (such as email newsletters to which they have subscribed).
In essence, Gmail is claiming to serve the function of a postal carrier who delivers mail you’ve requested to your mailbox. But during the delivery, Gmail carriers open and read your mail, and if they don’t like what they read, they trash your letter and refuse to deliver it. Google actively and mercilessly pursues this interference action against targeted publishers on a daily basis. While interfering with the delivery of a U.S. Postal Service letter is a felony crime, Google actively interferes with the delivery of electronic mail on a minute-by-minute basis, with no apparent criminal liability whatsoever.
This means that online advertising giants—and their second-tier advertising partners—are now censoring e-commerce based entirely on their personal dislike for the speech content originating from a news brand that’s related to the e-commerce platform.
Such forms of censorship may violate federal law’s protections of the right to engage in commerce without interference…. In a tech-driven society, this is akin to stealing and destroying the postal mail of your neighbors merely because you hate their politics, yet Google and Yahoo pursue these malicious actions on a daily basis, without any apparent repercussions.
In essence, the combination of censorship, suppression, intimidation and other tactics will, if not stopped, lead to a future internet where only one “official” opinion is allowed for any given topic of discussion.
The United States government has a compelling interest in preserving the marketplace of free ideas, even when those ideas are unpopular or consist of criticism against the government itself.
To accomplish this goal, the United States Congress must act with urgent legislation, and relevant regulators (FCC, FTC) must assert regulatory oversight that protects a fair and free marketplace of ideas across the ‘net. We need, in other words, an “Internet Freedom Act.”
 DECLARE THE DOMINANT ONLINE PLATFORMS OF SPEECH TO BE “PUBLIC COMMONS” COMMUNICATIONS INFRASTRUCTURE, ESSENTIAL FOR INDIVIDUAL PARTICIPATION IN MODERN SOCIETY.
When an online platform reaches over 50% market penetration in its appropriate sector (such as social media, search, videos, etc.) it should be deemed an “essential service” for the public at large, making it subject to laws and regulations that prohibit discriminatory censorship.
 OUTLAW THE CENSORING OF CONTENT BASED ON POLITICAL VIEWS OR “UNPOPULAR” VIEWS ON SCIENCE, MEDICINE, HISTORY AND RELIGION.
As part of the legislative and regulatory reforms that are needed today, lawmakers should specifically name content areas (subject matter) which are protected by those laws. Protected topics must include politics, science, medicine, history, religion, sexuality and others.
 INVOKE RICO ACT INDICTMENTS AND PROSECUTIONS AGAINST FACEBOOK, ALPHABET AND OTHER INTERNET GATEKEEPERS FOR WAGING MAFIA-STYLE CAMPAIGNS OF INTIMIDATION AND OPPRESSION.
 SEEK CRIMINAL INDICTMENTS AGAINST FACEBOOK, GOOGLE, YOUTUBE AND TWITTER FOR INTERFERING IN THE 2018 ELECTIONS AND COMMITTING WHAT ROBERT MUELLER CALLS A “CONSPIRACY TO DEFRAUD THE UNITED STATE OF AMERICA”.
 PASS LAWS THAT ALLOW INDIVIDUALS WHO HAVE BEEN CENSORED FOR POLITICAL REASONS TO SUE THE DOMINANT ONLINE PLATFORMS FOR ACTUAL DAMAGES AND PUNITIVE DAMAGES.
One way to halt online censorship by tech giants is to make it financially unwise for them to engage in such actions. This can be achieved by passing laws that allow the victims of censorship—whose personal lives, professional lives and small businesses have been destroyed—to sue the tech giants for damages.
Under this system, if a tech giant wished to ban someone, they would have to file a case with the third party arbitration organization which would alert the user to the case so that they could appear in their defense. No bans could be carried out without the decision authority of the arbitration entity, and all decisions would be openly published for public review…. A similar procedure is currently in place regarding domain name intellectual property disputes.
 OUTLAW EMAIL ISPs FROM INTERFERING WITH THE DELIVERY OF EMAIL THAT HAS BEEN REQUESTED BY END USERS.
Just as it is currently illegal for individuals or organizations to interfere with the delivery of the U.S. mail, it should also be illegal for ISPs (such as gmail) to interfere with the delivery of email that is requested by the end user. The ongoing interference of email newsletter delivery is an insidious form of selective censorship.
 BREAK UP GOOGLE, FACEBOOK, TWITTER AND OTHER TECH GIANTS UNDER ANTITRUST LEGISLATION
Existing law already provides justification under the RICO Act (racketeering) to criminally indict executives of Google, Facebook and other tech giants.
Hello Abel Danger, I understand you may be pursuing putting on some plays that will include you traveling to many locations. You may find the below information of great importance for a play explaining how all the bad crap we are experiencing today has been allowed by the foundation actions of 3 men in 1783.
The United States of America never had a Republic and therefore can not return to what never was. Starting in 196o thru 1973 I and other Jesuit students were basically told the US Constitution was dormant document at best because of a one key person that was a Esquire and Mason. He at the close of the Constitutional Convention of 1787, “A lady asked Dr. Franklin, Well Doctor what have we got a republic or a monarchy. A republic, replied the Doctor if you can keep it.”
What did Franklin know when he gave that answer? We should go fly a kite? Below are some notes with references for possibly proofing the claim that the constitution is not an active document, we don’t own our land, and we are not sovereign people. Keep in mind we students were to know of these events to be successful in international business and/or law. I found the trouble with history is, we weren’t there when it took place and it can be changed to fit someones belief and/or traditions, or it can be taught in the public schools to favor a political agenda, and withhold many facts.
I know you have been taught that we won the Revolutionary War and defeated the British, but I am sure I can prove to the contrary. I want you to read this paper with an open mind, and allow yourself to be instructed with the following verifiable facts. You be the judge and please don’t let prior conclusions on your part or incorrect teaching, keep you from the truth. I too was always taught in grammar school and in studying our history books that our freedom came from the Declaration of Independence and was secured by our winning the Revolutionary War.
I’m going to discuss a few documents that are included at the end of this paper, in the footnotes. The first document is the first Charter of Virginia in 1606 (footnote #1).
In the first paragraph, the king of England granted our fore fathers license to settle and colonize America. The definition for license is as follows. “In Government Regulation. Authority to do some act or carry on some trade or business, in its nature lawful but prohibited by statute, except with the permission of the civil authority or which would otherwise be unlawful.” Bouvier’s Law Dictionary, 1914. Always consider those that came to America from England were British subjects. Masons and Esquires. So you can better understand what I’m going to tell you, here are the definitions for subject and citizen.
You probably know this but I find it good to repeat the basics. “In monarchical governments, by subject is meant one who owes permanent allegiance to the monarch.” Bouvier’s Law Dictionary, 1914. “Constitutional Law. One that owes allegiance to a sovereign and is governed by his laws. The natives of Great Britain are subjects of the British government. Men in free governments are subjects as well as citizens; as citizens they enjoy rights and franchises; as subjects they are bound to obey the laws. The term is little used, in this sense, in countries enjoying a republican form of government.” Swiss Nat. Ins. Co. v. Miller, 267 U.S. 42, 45 S. Ct. 213, 214, 69 L.Ed. 504. Blacks fifth Ed.
I chose to give the definition for subject first, so you could better understand what definition of citizen is really being used in American law. Below is the definition of citizen from Roman law. “The term citizen was used in Rome to indicate the possession of private civil rights, including those accruing under the Roman family and inheritance law and the Roman contract and property law. All other subjects were peregrines. But in the beginning of the 3d century the distinction was abolished and all subjects were citizens; 1 sel. Essays in Anglo-Amer. L. H. 578.” Bouvier’s Law Dictionary, 1914.
The king was making a commercial venture when he sent his subjects to America, and used his money and resources to do so. I think you would admit the king had a lawful right to receive gain and prosper from his venture. In the Virginia Charter he declares his sovereignty over the land and his subjects and in paragraph 9 he declares the amount of gold, silver and copper he is to receive if any is found by his subjects. There could have just as easily been none, or his subjects could have been killed by the Indians. This is why this was a valid right of the king (Jure Coronae, “In right of the crown,” Black’s forth Ed.), the king expended his resources with the risk of total loss.
If you’ll notice in paragraph 9 the king declares that all his heirs and successors were to also receive the same amount of gold, silver and copper that he claimed with this Charter. The gold that remained in the colonies was also the kings. He provided the remainder as a benefit for his subjects, which amounted to further use of his capital. You will see in this paper that not only is this valid, but it is still in effect today.
If you will read the rest of the Virginia Charter you will see that the king declared the right and exercised the power to regulate every aspect of commerce in his new colony. A license had to be granted for travel connected with transfer of goods (commerce) right down to the furniture they sat on. A great deal of the king’s declared property was ceded to America in the Treaty of 1783. I want you to stay focused on the money and the commerce which was not ceded to America.
This brings us to the Declaration of Independence.
Our freedom was declared because the king did not fulfill his end of the covenant between king and subject. The main complaint was taxation without representation, which was reaffirmed in the early 1606 Charter granted by the king. It was not a revolt over being subject to the king of England, most wanted the protection and benefits provided by the king. Because of the kings refusal to hear their demands and grant relief, separation from England became the lesser of two evils. The cry of freedom and self determination became the rallying cry for the colonist. The slogan “Don’t Tread On Me” was the standard borne by the militias. The Revolutionary War was fought and concluded when Cornwallis surrendered to Washington at Yorktown.
As Americans we have been taught that we defeated the king and won our freedom.
The next document I will use is the Treaty of 1783, which will totally contradict our having won the Revolutionary War. (footnote 2). I want you to notice in the first paragraph that the king refers to himself as prince of the Holy Roman Empire and of the United States. You know from this that the United States did not negotiate this Treaty of Peace in a position of strength and victory, but it is obvious that Benjamin Franklin, John Jay and John Adams negotiated a Treaty of further granted privileges from the king of England. Keep this in mind as you study these documents.
You also need to understand the players of those that negotiated this Treaty. For the Americans it was Benjamin Franklin Esgr., a great patriot and standard bearer of freedom. Or was he? His title includes Esquire. An Esquire in the above usage was a granted rank and Title of nobility by the king, which is below Knight and above a yeoman, common man. An Esquire is someone that does not do manual labor as signified by this status, see the below definitions. “Esquires by virtue of their offices; as justices of the peace, and others who bear any office of trust under the crown….for whosever studieth the laws of the realm, who studieth in the universities, who professeth the liberal sciences, and who can live idly, and without manual labor, and will bear the port, charge, and countenance of a gentleman, he shall be called master, and shall be taken for a gentleman.”
Blackstone Commentaries p. 561-562 “Esquire – In English Law. A title of dignity next above gentleman, and below knight. Also a title of office given to sheriffs, serjeants, and barristers at law, justices of the peace, and others.” Blacks Law Dictionary fourth ed. p. 641 Benjamin Franklin, John Adams and John Jay as you can read in the Treaty were all Esquires and were the signers of this Treaty and the only negotiators of the Treaty. The representative of the king was David Hartley Esqr.. Benjamin Franklin was the main negotiator for the terms of the Treaty, he spent most of the War traveling between England and France. The use of Esquire declared his and the others British subjection and loyalty to the crown.
In the first article of the Treaty most of the king’s claims to America are relinquished, except for his claim to continue receiving gold, silver and copper as gain for his business venture. Article 3 gives Americans the right to fish the waters around the United States and its rivers. In article 4 the United States agreed to pay all bona fide debts. If you will explore other period times for other papers on money you will understand that the financiers were working with the king. Why else would he protect their interest with this Treaty?
I wonder if you have seen the main and obvious point? This Treaty was signed in 1783, the war was over in 1781and the Constitutional Convention date of 1787. If the United States defeated England, how is the king granting rights to America, when we were now his equal in status? We supposedly defeated him in the Revolutionary War! So why would these supposed patriot Americans sign such a Treaty, when they knew that this would void any sovereignty gained by the Declaration of Independence and the Revolutionary War?
If we had won the Revolutionary War, the king granting us our land would not be necessary, it would have been ours by his loss of the Revolutionary War.
To not dictate the terms of a peace treaty in a position of strength after winning a war; means the war was never won. Think of other wars we have won, such as when we defeated Japan. Did McArther allow Japan to dictate to him the terms for surrender? No way! All these men did is gain status and privilege granted by the king and insure the subjection of future unaware generations. Worst of all, they sold out those that gave their lives and property for the chance to be free. When Cornwallis surrendered to Washington he surrendered the battle, not the war.
Read the Article of Capitulation signed by Cornwallis at Yorktown (footnote 3) Jonathan Williams recorded in his book, Legions of Satan, 1781, that Cornwallis revealed to Washington during his surrender that “a holy war will now begin on America, and when it is ended America will be supposedly the citadel of freedom, but her millions will unknowingly be loyal subjects to the Crown.”
….“in less than two hundred years the whole nation will be working for divine world government. That government that they believe to be divine will be the British Empire.”
All the Treaty did was remove the United States as a liability and obligation of the king. He no longer had to ship material and money to support his subjects and colonies. At the same time he retained financial subjection through debt owed after the Treaty, which is still being created today; millions of dollars a day. And his heirs and successors are still reaping the benefit of the kings original venture.
If you will read the following quote from Title 26, you will see just one situation where the king is still collecting a tax from those that receive a benefit from him, on property which is purchased with the money the king supplies, at almost the same percentage: -CITE- 26 USC Sec. 1491 HEAD-Sec. 1491. Imposition of tax-STATUTE- There is hereby imposed on the transfer of property by a citizen or resident of the United States, or by a domestic corporation or partnership, or by an estate or trust which is not a foreign estate or trust, to a foreign corporation as paid-in surplus or as a contribution to capital, or to a foreign estate or trust, or to a foreign partnership, an excise tax equal to 35 percent of the excess of – (1) the fair market value of the property so transferred, over (2) the sum of – (A) the adjusted basis (for determining gain) of such property in the hands of the transferor, plus (B) the amount of the gain recognized to the transferor at the time of the transfer. -SOURCE- (Aug. 16, 1954, ch. 736, 68A Stat. 365; Oct. 4, 1976, Pub. L. 94-455, title X, Sec. 1015(a), 90 Stat. 1617; Nov. 6, 1978, Pub. L. 95-600, title VII, Sec. 701(u)(14)(A), 92 Stat. 2919.) -MISC1- AMENDMENTS 1978 – Pub.

A new war was declared when the Treaty was signed. The king wanted his land back and he knew he would be able to regain his property for his heirs with the help of his world financiers. Here is a quote from the king speaking to Parliament after the Revolutionary War had concluded. (Six weeks after) the capitulation of Yorktown, the king of Great Britain, in his speech to Parliament (Nov. 27, 1781), declared “That he should not answer the trust committed to the sovereign of a free people, if he consented to sacrifice either to his own desire of peace, or to their temporary ease and relief, those essential rights and permanent interests, upon the maintenance and preservation of which the future strength and security of the country must forever depend.” The determined language of this speech, pointing to the continuance of the American war, was echoed back by a majority of both Lords and Commons.
In a few days after (Dec. 12), it was moved in the House of Commons that a resolution should be adopted declaring it to be their opinion “That all farther attempts to reduce the Americans to obedience by force would be ineffectual, and injurious to the true interests of Great Britain.” The rest of the debate can be found in (footnote 4).
What were the true interests of the king? The gold, silver and copper. The new war was to be fought without Americans being aware that a war was even being waged, it was to be fought by subterfuge and key personnel being placed in key positions.
The first two parts of “A Country Defeated In Victory,” go into detail about how this was done and exposes some of the main players. Every time you pay a tax you are transferring your labor to the king, and his heirs and successors are still receiving interest from the original American Charters. The following is the definition of tribute (tax). “A contribution which is raised by a prince or sovereign from his subjects to sustain the expenses of the state. A sum of money paid by an inferior sovereign or state to a superior potentate, to secure the friendship or protection of the latter.” Blacks Law Dictionary forth ed. p. 1677 As further evidence, not that any should be needed, a percentage of taxes that are paid are to enrich the king/queen of England. For those that study Title 26 you will recognize IMF, which means Individual Master File, all tax payers have one. To read one you have to be able to break their codes using file 6209, which is about 467 pages. On your IMF you will find a blocking series, which tells you what type of tax you are paying. You will probably find a 300-399 blocking series, which 6209 says is reserved. You then look up the BMF 300-399, which is the Business Master File in 6209. You would have seen prior to 1991, this was U.S.-U.K. Tax Claims, non-refile DLN. Meaning everyone is considered a business and involved in commerce and you are being held liable for a tax via a treaty between the U.S. and the U.K., payable to the U.K.. The form that is supposed to be used for this is form 8288, FIRPTA – Foreign Investment Real Property Tax Account, you won’t find many people using this form, just the 1040 form. The 8288 form can be found in the Law Enforcement Manual of the IRS, chapter 3. If you will check the OMB’s paper – Office of Management and Budget, in the Department of Treasury, List of Active Information Collections, Approved Under Paperwork Reduction Act, you will find this form under OMB number 1545-0902, which says U.S. withholding tax-return for dispositions by foreign persons of U.S. real property interests-statement of withholding on dispositions, by foreign persons, of U.S. Form #8288 #8288a. These codes have since been changed to read as follows; IMF 300-309, Barred Assement, CP 55 generated valid for MFT-30, which is the code for 1040 form. IMF 310-399 reserved, the BMF 300-309 reads the same as IMF 300-309. BMF 390-399 reads U.S./U.K. Tax Treaty Claims.
The long and short of it is nothing changed, the government just made it plainer, the 1040 is the payment of a foreign tax to the king/queen of England.
We have been in financial servitude since the Treaty of 1783. Does President Trump know of this? Maybe not as he told the World that the American people are sovereign. But he did not state what those responsibilities are to the sovereign. Another Treaty between England and the United States was Jay’s Treaty of 1794 (footnote 5). If you will remember from the Paris Treaty of 1783, John Jay Esqr. was one of the negotiators of the Treaty. In 1794 he negotiated another Treaty with Britain. There was great controversy among the American people about this Treaty.
In Article 2 you will see the king is still on land that was supposed to be ceded to the United States at the Paris Treaty. This is 13 years after America supposedly won the Revolutionary War. I guess someone forgot to tell the king of England.
In Article 6, the king is still dictating terms to the United States concerning the collection of debt and damages, the British government and World Bankers claimed we owe. In Article 12 we find the king dictating terms again, this time concerning where and with who the United States could trade. In Article 18 the United States agrees to a wide variety of material that would be subject to confiscation if Britain found said material going to its enemies ports.
Again who won the Revolutionary War? That’s right, we were conned by some of our early fore fathers into believing that we are free and sovereign people, when in fact we had the same status as before the Revolutionary War.
I say had, because our status is far worse now than then. I’ll explain. Early on in our history the king was satisfied with the interest made by the Bank of the United States. But when the Bank Charter was canceled in 1811 it was time to gain control of the government, in order to shape government policy and public policy. Have you never asked yourself why the British, after burning the White House and all our early records during the War of 1812, left and did not take over the government. The reason they did, was to remove the greatest barrier to their plans for this country. That barrier was the newly adopted 13th Amendment to the United States Constitution. The purpose for this Amendment was to stop anyone from serving in the government who was receiving a Title of nobility or honor. It was and is obvious that these government employees would be loyal to the granter of the Title of nobility or honor.
The War of 1812 served several purposes. It delayed the passage of the 13th Amendment by Virginia, allowed the British to destroy the evidence of the first 12 states ratification of this Amendment, and it increased the national debt, which would coerce the Congress to reestablish the Bank Charter in 1816 after the Treaty of Ghent was ratified by the Senate in 1815. The Articles of Confederation, Article VI states: “nor shall the united States in Congress assembled, or any of them, grant any Title of nobility.” The Constitution for the united States, in Article, I Section 9, clause 8 states: “No Title of nobility shall be granted by the united States; and no Person holding any Office or Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State.” Also, Section 10, clause 1 states, “No State shall enter into any Treaty, Alliance, or Confederation; grant Letters of Marque or Reprisal; coin Money; emit Bills of Credit; make any Thing but Gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts; pass any Bill of Attainder, ex post facto of Law impairing the Obligation of Contracts, or grant any Title of nobility.” There was however, no measurable penalty for violation of the above Sections, Congress saw this as a great threat to the freedom of Americans, and our Republican form of government. In January 1810 Senator Reed proposed the Thirteenth Amendment, and on April 26, 1810 was passed by the Senate 26 to 1 (1st-2nd session, p. 670) and by the House 87 to 3 on May 1, 1810 (2nd session, p. 2050) and submitted to the seventeen states for ratification. The Amendment reads as follows: “If any citizen of the United States shall Accept, claim, receive or retain any title of nobility or honor, or shall, without the consent of Congress, accept and retain any present, pension, office or emolument of any kind whatever, from any emperor, king, prince or foreign power, such person shall cease to be a citizen of the United States, and shall be incapable of holding any office of trust or profit under them, or either of them.” From An “American Dictionary of the English Language, 1st Edition,” Noah Webster, (1828) defines nobility as: “3. The qualities which constitute distinction of rank in civil society, according to the customs or laws of the country; that eminence or dignity which a man derives from birth or title conferred, and which places him in an order above common men.”; and, “4.
The persons collectively who enjoy rank above commoners; the peerage.” The fore-mentioned Sections in the Constitution for the united States, and the above proposed Thirteenth Amendment sought to prohibit the above definition, which would give any advantage or privilege to some citizens an unequal opportunity to achieve or exercise political power. Thirteen of the seventeen states listed below understood the importance of this Amendment. Date admitted Date voted for Date voted against to the Union the Amendment the Amendment 1788 Maryland Dec. 25, 1810 1792 Kentucky Jan. 31, 1811 1803 Ohio Jan. 31, 1811 1787 Delaware Feb. 2, 1811 1787 Pennsylvania Feb. 6, 1811 1787 New Jersey Feb. 13, 1811 1791 Vermont Oct. 24, 1811 1796 Tennessee Nov. 21, 1811 1788 Georgia Dec. 13, 1811 1789 North Carolina Dec. 23, 1811 1788 Massachusetts Feb. 27, 1812 1788 New Hampshire Dec. 10, 1812 1788 Virginia March 12, 1819 1788 New York March 12, 1811 1788 Connecticut May 1813 1788 South Carolina December 7, 1813 1790 Rhode Island September 15, 1814 On March 10, 1819, the Virginia legislature passed Act No. 280 (Virginia Archives of Richmond, “misc.” file, p. 299 for micro- film): “Be it enacted by the General Assembly, that there shall be published an edition of the laws of this Commonwealth in which shall be contained the following matters, that is to say: the Constitution of the united States and the amendments thereto…”
The official day of ratification was March 12, 1819, this was the date of re-publication of the Virginia Civil Code. Virginia ordered 4,000 copies, almost triple their usual order. Word of Virginia’s 1819 ratification spread throughout the states and both Rhode Island and Kentucky published the new Amendment in 1822. Ohio published the new Amendment in 1824. Maine ordered 10,000 copies of the Constitution with the new Amendment to be printed for use in the public schools, and again in 1831 for their Census Edition. Indiana published the new Amendment in the Indiana Revised Laws, of 1831 on P. 20. The Northwest Territories published the new Amendment in 1833; Ohio published the new Amendment again in 1831 and in 1833. Connecticut, one of the states that voted against the new Amendment published the new Amendment in 1835. Wisconsin Territory published the new Amendment in 1839; Iowa Territory published the new Amendment in 1843; Ohio published the new Amendment again, in 1848; Kansas published the new Amendment in 1855; and Nebraska Territory published the new Amendment six years in a row from 1855 to 1860. Colorado Territory published the new Amendment in 1865 and again 1867, in the 1867 printing, the present Thirteenth Amendment (slavery Amendment) was listed as the Fourteenth Amendment. The repeated reprinting of the Amended united States Constitution is conclusive evidence of its passage.
Also, as evidence of the new Thirteenth Amendments impending passage; on December 2, 1817 John Quincy Adams, then Secretary of State, wrote to Buck (an attorney) regarding the position Buck had been assigned. The letter reads: “…if it should be the opinion of this Government that the acceptance on your part of the Commission under which it was granted did not interfere with your citizenship. It is the opinion of the Executive that under the 13th amendment to the constitution by the acceptance of such an appointment from any foreign Government, a citizen of the United States ceases to enjoy that character, and becomes incapable of holding any office of trust or profit under the United States or either of them… J.Q.A.
By virtue of these titles and honors, and special privileges, lawyers have assumed political and economic advantages over the majority of citizens. A majority may vote, but only a minority (lawyers) may run for political office. After the War of 1812 was concluded the Treaty of Ghent was signed and ratified (footnote 6). In Article 4 of the Treaty, the United States gained what was already given in the Treaty of Paris 1783, namely islands off the U.S. Coast.
Also, two men were to be given the power to decide the borders and disagreements, if they could not, the power was to be given to an outside sovereign power and their decision was final and considered conclusive. In Article 9 it is admitted there are citizens and subjects in America. As you have seen, the two terms are interchangeable, synonymous.
In Article 10 you will see where the idea for the overthrow of this country came from and on what issue. The issue raised by England was slavery and it was nurtured by the king’s emissaries behind the scenes. This would finally lead to the Civil War, even though the Supreme Court had declared the states and their citizens property rights could not be infringed on by the United States government or Congress. This was further declared by the following Presidential quotes, where they declared to violate the states rights would violate the U.S. Constitution.
Also, history shows that slavery would not have existed much longer in the Southern states, public sentiment was changing and slavery was quickly disappearing. The Civil War was about destroying property rights and the U.S. Constitution which supported these rights. Read the following quotes of Presidents just before the Civil War: “I believe that involuntary servitude, as it exists in different States of this Confederacy, is recognized by the Constitution. I believe that it stands like any other admitted right, and that the States were it exists are entitled to efficient remedies to enforce the constitutional provisions.” Franklin Pierce Inaugural Address, March 4, 1853 – Messages and Papers of the Presidents, vol. 5. “The whole Territorial question being thus settled upon the principle of popular sovereignty-a principle as ancient as free government itself-everything of a practical nature has been decided.
No other question remains for adjustment, because all agree that under the Constitution slavery in the States is beyond the reach of any human power except that of the respective States themselves wherein it exists.” James Buchanan Inaugural Address, March 4, 1857 – Messages and Papers of the Presidents, vol. 5. “I cordially congratulate you upon the final settlement by the Supreme Court of the United States of the question of slavery in the Territories, which had presented an aspect so truly formidable at the commencement of my Administration. The right has been established of every citizen to take his property of any kind, including slaves, into the common Territories belonging equally to all the States of the Confederacy, and to have it protected there under the Federal Constitution.
Neither Congress nor a Territorial legislature nor any human power has any authority to annul or impair this vested right. The supreme judicial tribunal of the country, which is a coordinate branch of the Government, has sanctioned and affirmed these principles of constitutional law, so manifestly just in themselves and so well calculated to promote peace and harmony among the States.” James Buchanan, Third Annual Message, December 19, 1859 – Messages and Papers of the Presidents, vol. 5. So there is no misunderstanding I am not re-arguing slavery. Slavery is morally wrong and contrary to God Almighty’s Law. In this divisive issue, the true attack was on our natural rights and on the Constitution. The core of the attack was on our right to possess allodial property. Our God given right to own property in allodial was taken away by conquest of the Civil War. If you are free this right cannot be taken away.
The opposite of free is slave or subject, we were allowed to believe we were free for about 70 years.
Then the king said enough, and had the slavery issue pushed to the front by the northern press, which so formed northern public opinion, that they were willing to send their sons to die in the Civil War. The southern States were not fighting so much for the slave issue, but for the right to own property, any property. These property rights were granted by the king in the Treaty of 1783, knowing they would soon be forfeited by the American people through ignorance. Do you think you own your house? If you were to stop paying taxes, federal or state, you would soon find out that you were just being allowed to live and pay rent for this house. The rent being the taxes to the king, who supplied the benefit of commerce. A free man not under a monarch, democracy, dictatorship or socialist government, but is under a republican form of government would not and could not have his property taken. Why! The king’s tax would not and could not be levied.
If the Americans had been paying attention the first 70 years to the subterfuge and corruption of the Constitution and government representatives, instead of chasing the money supplied by the king, the Conquest of this country during the Civil War could have been avoided.
George Washington had vision during the Revolutionary War, concerning the Civil War. You need to read it. footnote 7 The government and press propaganda that the War was to free the black people from slavery is ridiculous, once you understand the Civil War Thirteenth and Fourteenth Amendments. The black people are just as much slaves today as before the Civil War just as the white people are, and also we find ourselves subjects of the king/queen of England. The only thing that changed for black people is they changed masters and were granted a few rights, which I might add can be taken away anytime the government chooses.
Since the 1930’s the black people have been paid reparations to buy off their silence, in other words, keep the slaves on the plantation working. I do not say this to shock or come across as prejudiced, because I’m not. Here’s what Russell Means said, for those that don’t remember who he is, he was the father in the movie called, “Last Of The Mohicians”. Russell Means said ” until the white man is free we will never be free”, the we he is referring to are the Indians. There has never been a truer statement, however the problem is the white people are not aware of their enslavement.
At the risk of being redundant; to set the record straight, because Lord only knows what will be said about what I just said regarding black people, I believe that if you are born in this country you are equal, period. Forget the empty promises of civil rights, what about you unalienable natural rights under God Almighty. All Americans are feudal tenants on the land, allowed to rent the property they live on as long as the king gets his cut.
What about self-determination, or being able to own allodial title to property, which means the king cannot take your property for failure to pay a tax. Which means you did not own it to begin with. The king allows you to use the material goods and land. Again this is financial servitude. “The ultimate ownership of all property is in the state; individual so-called `ownership’ is only by virtue of government, i.e., law, amounting to a mere user; and use must be in accordance with law and subordinate to the necessities of the State.” Senate Document No. 43, “Contracts payable in Gold” written in 1933. The king controlled the government by the time the North won the Civil War, through the use of lawyers that called the shots behind the scenes, just as they do now and well placed subjects in the United States government.
This would not have been possible if not for England destroying our documents in 1812 and the covering up of state documents of the original 13th Amendment. According to International law, what took place when the North conquered the South?
First, you have to understand the word “conquest” in international law. When you conquer a state you acquire the land; and those that were subject to the conquered state, then become subject to the conquers. The laws of the conquered state remain in force until the conquering state wishes to change all or part of them.
At the time of conquest the laws of the conquered state are subject to change or removal, which means the law no longer lies with the American people through the Constitution, but lies with the new sovereign. The Constitution no longer carries any power of its own, but drives its power from the new sovereign, the conqueror. The reason for this is the Constitution derived its power from the people, when they were defeated, so was the Constitution. The following is the definition of Conquest: “The acquisition of the sovereignty of a country by force of arms, exercised by an independent power which reduces the vanquished to submission to its empire.” “The intention of the conqueror to retain the conquered territory is generally manifested by formal proclamation of annexation, and when this is combined with a recognized ability to retain the conquered territory, the transfer of sovereignty is complete.
A treaty of peace based upon the principle of uti possidetis (q.v.) is formal recognition of conquest.” “The effects of conquest are to confer upon the conquering state the public property of the conquered state, and to invest the former with the rights and obligations of the latter; treaties entered into by the conquered state with other states remain binding upon the annexing state, and the debts of the extinct state must be taken over by it. Conquest likewise invests the conquering state with sovereignty over the subjects of the conquered state. Among subjects of the conquered state are to be included persons domiciled in the conquered territory who remain there after the annexation. The people of the conquered state change their allegiance but not their relations to one another.”
Leitensdorfer v. Webb, 20 How. (U.S.) 176, 15 L. Ed. 891. “After the transfer of political jurisdiction to the conqueror the municipal laws of the territory continue in force until abrogated by the new sovereign.” American Ins. Co. v. Canter, 1 Pet. (U.S.) 511, 7 L. Ed. 242. Conquest, In international Law. – Bouvier’s Law Dictionary What happened after the Civil War? Did not U.S. troops force the southern states to accept the Fourteenth Amendment? The laws of America, the Constitution were changed by the conquering government.
Why? The main part I want you to see, as I said at the beginning of this paper, is watch the money and the commerce. The Fourteenth Amendment says the government debt can not be questioned. Why? Because now the king wants all the gold, silver and copper and the land. Which can easily be done by increasing the government debt and making the American people sureties for the debt. This has been done by the sleight of hand of lawyers and the bankers.
David, let me stop at this point, but know there is much more, many too much more. However, how much more do our Veterans, Black people and the American Native Indian population need to know about the frauds that have been perpetrated on them.
The typical American slave IMHO cannot be educated be cause he feels no harm has been done to him/her in LaLa land. No longer should our Veterans, current and future service personnel be used as cannon fodder to benefit the 1%. You could skip to 1933 to see what harm has happen to those still asleep not knowing they are the enemy today. Please, if you have any questions forward them to me. ……………………French Champagne
William Cooper is a great researcher into the history of the elite, the governments, the treaties and contracts and hidden circles that met to program our world as it is now today.
When we listenend to him 30 years ago it was meaningful info, today it is even more meaningfull, as most what he speaks about, has been realized in those years.
This is for the truth seekers among you, who want to know more about our history and how things are well precisely planned and why nobody really knows about it! He speaks mainly about how the many alien Ufo´s that crashed on the earth are the core of what we see today in money management, fraud, secret societies and government that don´t want to tell the truth.
He always said he didn’t care if not one soul believed him and he didn’t care what people thought about him. He didn’t expect that anyone would believe him, especially back in the 1980’s, but he cared more about telling the truth while he has breath to do so, even though he knew exactly what the consequences of exposing the real conspiracies and conspirators was. Cooper was labeled a conspiracy theorist by those guilty of the greatest conspiracy of all, “The Plan”.
Mystery always surrounds the many crashed passenger planes of the last decade and in conversations with clients, friends and family I observe how the opinions differ a lot.
Field McConnell of Abel Danger has researched this tragic issue for many years. Being a professional military and passenger liner pilot for many years he has insights in the signs, symbolic and technology.
Listen to his talks, do your own research and make you own decision.
Attention DPA, As covered by 21st Century Wire: The Case of Malaysia’s Missing Airliner MH370 — Part Two http://21stcenturywire.com/2014/03/16… Before It’s News http://beforeitsnews.com/terrorism/20… I am a retired Delta pilot. On 10 December, 2006 I informed FAA, FBI and NWA of the Boeing Uninterruptible Autopilot. It was used against Adam Air 574 in a manner consistent with the loss yesterday of the B777 enroute Kaula Lampur to China. Please advise me if Delta ALPA Safety Reps have educated the Delta Pilot Group of the BUAP that I forced Boeing to announce on 3 March, 2007 in response to my lawsuit filed against Boeing and ALPA of 27 February, 2007. That lawsuit was Civil Case 3:07-cv-24 and resulted in Boeing doing the right thing in announcing the deployment of the BUAP to be completed by March, 2009. Here is the article of Boeing’s response to my lawsuit: New autopilot will make another 9/11 impossible My question to DPA and Delta ALPA Safety is on what date did Delta ensure that all Delta pilots are aware of what Boeing has stated 7 years ago would be installed by March, 2009. The significance is that if any ALPA pilots are not aware of this ‘feature’ they cannot comply with FAR 121.533. In regards to yesterday’s B777 hull loss expect to see the attached tax document anchoring a chapter published demonstrating the similarities of yesterday’s loss to Adam Air 574 to Sukhoi Superjet lost in May, 2012. Please note that defattru email address goes to Russian Air Force, Sukhoi and GRU. If you are not aware of who GRU is perhaps you should be.
Sometimes it feels that the news and information are coming in faster and faster and it becomes difficult to stay centered, so we need to focus and discern what is really going on. Well it it the same old, ancient game, nothing new, but what is new………. is is not hidden anymore it is coming to the surface, floating on the waters and more and more people are seeing it. Transparancy we call it.
“We’re in a giant car heading towards a brick wall and everyone is arguing over where they’re going to sit” ~David Suzuki
Many poscasts andother media outlets attack eachother, they seem to be jumping from one “in” topic to the next, nothing gets resolved and less gets clear to the bottom. Though some are continiously doing their part, staying focussed, digging deeper and helping transparency win more space.
I love the Abel Danger Group, I do follow them since ever and they are like wonderful hounting dogs, following the trails they find, following the $$ and the ducuments, patents and contracts.
Aim4truth does great work, explaining for many what is really going on, how everything works and who is sitting at the control buttons.
Americans4innovation is the best in finding well hidden documents, they have 17 years of experience searching for them in dark places and they do a wonderful job. They had to as their patents were stolen before they were approved completely.
thewhitehatsreport bring information you can not find anywhere else, about the global trading programs, making trillions of $$, money once planned to help humanity in special situations, but now hitchhiked by the gang.
In the crashing plane of an unhealthy culture, healthy people place the oxygen mask on themselves first.
The Oxygen Mask is a metaphor that represents health: healthy mind, healthy body, healthy soul. The crashing plane is a metaphor that represents an unhealthy, unsustainable culture.
Oxygen is life, literally. Metaphorically, oxygen represents health. Figuratively, it represents freedom. And becoming healthy and free is the fastest way to reach the point where you can distinguish invalid human opinion from valid Universal Law. You must be capable of this distinction before you can decide what to do about the crashing plane.
But first, oxygen. First, health. First, freedom. First, self-empowerment. These are paramount. Without these there is nothing.
All my live I wondered what freedom on earth means, are we free, do we have free expression? Are we ruled by people, schools, parents, behaviour patterns or propaganda? What do we believe and who is the one at the control button of your believes?
I have always been digging into this extreme interesting and very muddy topic and only bits and pieces have reveiled itself. It is sooooooooooo complex, you hardly can´t find out for yourself by only researching it. You have to dive in with a clear intent and determination to “WANT” to be free of it all, and that´s not an easy task.
Some years ago, as I was moving my container of home belongings (10 years in containers as I was living in the South Pacific and not needing anything!) I shared some hours with a driver of a truck helping me. As he came alone as they had forgotten to book a helper to move all the stuff we had like 3 hours of “nothing to do but wait”.
As soon as I told him about my work with people to bring more awareness into their lives, healing them and their families, he told me an intersting story from his German neighbor. This man was an older man, not so old, but like 64 and he had a good relationship with him and they had long talks about freedom, sovereignty and the German laws and contracts.
This man did have an original pasport of the “Deutsche Reich” and not the normal one all people have of the “Bundes Republik Deutschland”, which I found out earlier is like the USA and more countries a corporation.
This man never paid taxes, never paid a fee for government stuff, never paid a parking fine, he did not have to pay those things as they were not legal under his passport of the Deutsche Reich. So he freed himself from the laws we know and have to follow every day of our lives. If we don´t do that we go to prison or have to pay! Whatever!
He told me the story how his neighbor found out that by his birth his parents had a birth certificate made for him and this “handed him over” to the corporation. So he had started to look into all these contracts, lies, frauds, documents and had gone the path of getting rid of it all.
To make the story short: as soon as he got out of it all and started to talk about it to help others to get out he was silenced and now does not want to speak about it anymore.
In Germany not many know about this and less about how to get out of it. But in the US and Australia there are quiet a lot of people trying to and some ended up in prison.
One person who did get out and who is teachings others how he did it, what to do, what to learn and more important what to unlearn is David Williams, he is now the Prime Minister of his own country, legal, he got papers and confirmation to show you, a series of DVD´s for people who are determined to get out (BE CAREFUL- NOT EASY AT ALL!!!!), a website and many interview to listen to.
Your brain will be racing to coop with all the information, but it is worth it to know more about.
We entered the era of transparancy and it is mega important that everything comes on the table, on the seeing side so we can try to start a healing process all together and stop the control over humanity.
You can meditate if you have the power to follow his keys to freedom or prefer to continue as always. I personally know hundreds of people speaking about freedom, about love&light as a path but I really don´t know anyone personnally who is free and living it. Even the great teachers I worked and cooperated with have their controlled lives and thoughts and believe patterns!
David Williams opens his website with following statement:
“The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn!”
A person that tried to dig into it deep many years ago: Santos Bonacci
The Fraud of the Birth Certificate on “The TRUTH Hour” with Johnny Guzman and Santos Bonacci
Do your own reasearch, surf the internet, history, it is not only true in the USA or Germany, perhaps in your country too. I always feel that knowing how things work is 50% of the path, or the healing. Then you can decide to live with it, in it and do the best you can or follow the extreme difficult path to get out!
Please visit their website and research all the important information. You will understand a lot of what is playing in this world. Perhaps you can start to support them, by donating, by resending or tweeting their articles!!!!
I am rather neutral in politics as I feel most of them are playing the game following the same plan. I wouldn´t be surprised if the two reigning parties in the US are paid by the same sources.
But Trump is stirring up a lot, like a bulldozer running over already establized things, throwing out lies, fraud, blackmail etc on his path, “doing the deal” as he calls it. But when I listen to some of his speeches, I think, oh man, he is right, he brings it to a point. Listen for yourself………..see what you feel.
Often I wondered if Trump is not a real Indigo, an older model, busting the system as Indigo´s tend to do.
Putting their finger in the weak spot so it can heal! Be sure he knows about symbols, colour signs and other gestures to give you his information and messages! EU TV laughs when they see the trick with the water bottles, but if you know, you know!
Every month is it more obvious that corpoations are the ruling ones, they seem to be higher than governments, we the people and as they are not human, errors or obstructions against the laws are just done with by $$$$$$$$$. No human feelings, not for them, not for the people, animals, nature, earth, cosmos and who knows what more.
Aim4truth published MAY 29, 20184:05 PM a very well researched article which I include here!
IF CORPORATIONS ARE GOING TO BE TREATED AS LEGAL PERSONS, THEY SHOULD HAVE PERSONAL ACCOUNTABILITY, TOO, ESPECIALLY FOR HUMAN RIGHTS ABUSES.
Is it a coincidence that Aim4Truth declared May to be “Serco Awareness” month and now we hear that Serco’s $80 billion in fraud charges in the United Kingdom are driving Serco into bankruptcy?
Isn’t it marvelous when Americans4Innovation finds the golden share of the British Crown that owns Serco and that the Queen’s Privy Counselor Sir Geoffrey Pattie is the Queen’s agent, and that Pattie’s intelligence agency is Strategic Communications Laboratories, that SCL collapses at the same time?
Was it the disinfecting brilliant light of day that shown upon the corrupt connections between Serco and Lockheed Martin, the Atomic Weapons Establishment (AWE), SCL Group, Terrington Management, BAE, Leidos, CACI, In-Q-Tel and ultimately the Highland Forum that helped “bring down” Serco?
Serco is the perfect modern-day replica of the archetypal corporation – the British East India Company – who was known by the motto, “trading with a sword.” We have written extensively about this subject and offer readers many selections at the end of this report. So that we can continue making progress with our truth disclosure, we have to assume that the reader is somewhat familiar with our other articles and reports.
…SO WHAT IS A CORPORATION?
Corporations have only one intent – to make money for shareholders who are protected by the limited liability of a corporation that has “person” status for rights but immunity for crimes. Corporations plan to commit crimes and when they get caught, they simply pay the fines and penalties. No single “person” in the corporation is held responsible for the crime and seldom suffer criminal prosecution that includes jail-time. Corporations are “exempt” from suffering the same fate that you or I would suffer if we committed the same crime. The evidence is abundantly clear that the bigger the corporation, the bigger the crimes.
THE MOST ASKED QUESTION ABOUT ‘EVIL CORPORATIONS’ IS: “HOW DID IT HAPPEN THAT CORPORATIONS ARE IN A STATUS THAT IS OBVIOUSLY HIGHER THAN A COMMON CITIZEN’S?”
We recently released an Anonymous Patriot Citizen Intelligence Report on the origins and corruption of the legal system that has its roots in the City of London UK and the Vatican City. (See: The British Crown Runs the U.S. Legal System) We showed how courts raise lawyers up into a “titled” position called Esquire – a type of nobility. Lawyers become a “higher class” by being called to the Temple Bar and the Four Inns of Court which have their equivalent in America.
These “legal nobility” are like the British status of landed gentry, and by such appointment can then have standing to act in the courts of law. These courts of law constitute another titled position that is above the common person, a noble estate of sorts. Judges are like nobility who rule in “their court-room”, which they act like they own and rule with complete sovereignty in contradistinction to the rule of law.
Corporations are another status of a titled position or authority that is above the commoner who is subject to common law instead of admiralty, merchant, or cannon law. The common person may not, in many cases, even speak before a court because they have no standing or status to do so.
When viewed this way, you could reasonably conclude that courts, lawyers, corporations, churches, and monarchies are outside of the law. Politicians and government employees are often exempt from prosecution also. But the common person is not “called to the bar”, therefore, cannot truly utilize the very court systems that can prosecute him.
Courts (all powerful churches), judges (little popes) and lawyers (titled gentry) protect the corporations (monarchies-nobility) who don’t have to answer to lower crimes that commoners are accountable for. In keeping with current British law, commoners may not even “question the affairs” of the Crown (Monsanto, Lockheed, Raytheon, etc.).
Whenever corporations have “big” problems, they go to “big courts” – U. S. Federal courts – where corporate interests are always put before the lower interests of We the People (commoners). The Supreme Court is the best example of BIG courts bowing before BIG corporations that they say are “too big to fail.” These really BIG corporations are usually warlord bankers, brokers, and money managers.
Legal protection for corporations is unlimited, especially in the realm of tax breaks for the biggest companies. Many of the largest corporations in America pay no taxes and often claim their main headquarters in another country, a hedge fund in a tax-haven, incorporated in an off-shore account, incorporated in Delaware, or thinly spread between many dummy corporations that shuffle and hide the money so little or no taxes are paid. The commoner, We the People, don’t get huge tax breaks or get to legally, in plain sight, hide tax-evasion.
It takes a legal background to navigate the American Corporatocracy and dodge taxes, gain tax advantages, avoid legal problems, stay out of jail, and make sure that the corporate burden is paid for by the commoners, not the corporate nobility. The original 13th Amendment to the U. S. Constitution prohibited lawyers from holding public office. There was the reason for that!
The “Three Estates” of the old world still apply: church (clergy), monarchy (nobility) and the common person. The power usually attributed to the Third Estate – the commoner – is the power of the Fourth Estate, which is the power of public opinion, the media. Only through information, truth, and awareness does the commoner have the power to navigate a court system that was created to consolidate and maintain the power of the clergy, nobility and the lawyers who rule the rigged court system, which we call – Fake Justice.
A monarchical corporation gains total control over church, state, and the people when government allows a monopoly to rule a sector of the economy like Amazon, Google or Facebook currently do. A “Corporate Monarch” becomes complete after the Supreme Court gives it immunity from common prosecution, compromised federal judges (acting like nobility) dole out fines instead of criminal sentences, and lawyers plan the crimes ahead of time and hide them until they get caught. When the Corporate Monarch gets caught, the titled nobility of the Bar haggle for smaller fines and penalties while commoners are crushed in the process.
We intend in this article to expose the underbelly and corruption of corporations and show the evidence that reveals their premeditated crimes against We the People. The mechanisms and machinations of corporate evil and crime are well worn paths that grow deeper with every new corporate aggression against humans and their environment. Corporations are complicit with genocide, endless war, environmental catastrophes, human depopulation, and a litany of evil crimes that seldom get prosecuted.
The time has come to reduce the status of corporations to “less than a person” because their crimes demonstrate that they are indeed – “less than human.”
BUDGETED CORPORATE CRIMES – THE COST OF DOING BUSINESS
Corporations carry out some of the most horrific human rights abuses of modern times, but it is increasingly difficult to hold them accountable. Economic globalization and the rise of transnational corporate power have created a favorable climate for corporate human rights abusers, which are governed principally by the codes of supply and demand and show loyalty only to their stockholders.
When corporations act like criminals, we have the right and the power to stop them, holding leaders and multinational corporations alike to the accords they have signed.
Corporations now spend about $2.6 billion a year on reported lobbying expenditures—more than the $2 billion we spend to fund the House ($1.18 billion) and Senate ($860 million). It’s a gap that has been widening since corporate lobbying began to regularly exceed the combined House-Senate budget in the early 2000s.
Today, the biggest companies have upwards of 100 lobbyists representing them, allowing them to be everywhere, all the time. For every dollar spent on lobbying by labor unions and public-interest groups together, large corporations and their associations now spend $34. Of the 100 organizations that spend the most on lobbying, 95 consistently represent business.
Essentially, corporations pay politicians to “look the other way” and never hold corporations accountable for morality, ethics, or decency. Corporate lobbyists demonstrate that our system of government, run by lawyers and the federal courts, is simply a corporatocracy that is supported 100% by the political machine. Our government is bought and paid for by corrupt money from corporations.
SUPREME COURT SIDES WITH CORPORATIONS
In April of 2018, The U. S. Supreme Court decided by a 5-to-4 vote to bar human rights suits against foreign corporations. Thus, foreign corporations may not be sued in American courts for complicity in human rights abuses abroad.
Justice Anthony M. Kennedy said such suits should not be allowed without explicit congressional authorization. “Courts are not well suited to make the required policy judgments that are implicated by corporate liability in cases like this one,” he wrote.
Justice Sonia Sotomayor said the Supreme Court had created a double standard for corporations. “It allows these entities to take advantage of the significant benefits of the corporate form and enjoy fundamental rights without having to shoulder attendant fundamental responsibilities,” Sotomayor wrote, citing decisions allowing corporations to spend freely in candidate elections and to deny contraception coverage to female workers for religious reasons.
The case turned on the meaning of the Alien Tort Statute, a cryptic 1789 law that allows federal district courts to hear “any civil action by an alien for a tort only, committed in violation of the law of nations or a treaty of the United States.”
Justice Sotomayor pointed out that just because Congress saw fit to permit suits only against individuals for torture and extra-judicial killing doesn’t mean it meant to bar suits against corporations in connection with other “law-of-nations” violations.
Sotomayor made a persuasive case that the Alien Tort Statute should indeed be interpreted to cover wrongdoing by corporations as well as individuals. She also noted the irony that under the new ruling, “foreign corporations — entities capable of wrongdoing under our domestic law — remain immune from liability for human rights abuses, however egregious they may be.”
THE FOUNDATIONS OF CORPORATE CRIMES
You may be shocked to read the following facts about corporations that seem to make them above the law, unquestionable sovereigns, and criminals who act with impunity. Many corporations are more powerful than nations. Sam Walton was the 28th most economically powerful force (nation) in the world at one time.
Many other facts about corporations are equally as disturbing as we find in the facts below.
In 2016, 37 of the top 100 economies in the world were multinational corporations, with Wal-Mart Stores annual revenue exceeding the GDP of all but the top 27 states in the world.
Because the corporation is legally considered a “person”, individual shareholders are not legally responsible for the corporation’s debts and damages beyond their investment in the corporation.
Individual employees, managers, and directors of corporations are not generally liable for the corporation’s actions.
Corporate personhood in the United States is the extension of a limited subset of the same constitutional rights as We the People.
Corporations are a “legal person” for the purposes of conducting business while shielding individual shareholdersfrom personal liability.
Corporate lobby money controls politics through Super PACS and campaign financial donations.
At the bottom-line, corporations are inexorably driven to immoral conduct by the fundamental structure of corporate law, or to put the point colloquially, “Corporations make good people do bad things.”
Corporate scandals are inevitable because the modem corporation has a structural imperative to show a short-term profit even if this requires committing fraud and/or shifting costs onto employees, the community and the environment.
Corporations cannot be held accountable for human rights violations. Corporations can be protected by human rights law while they can enjoy impunity for committing human rights violations.
Over the past 60 years, the legal status of corporations in human rights law has been protected through the European and the Inter-American human rights systems.
Shareholders have no responsibility for what is done, to whom or to what injury is done. They are legally immune and are free to be socially irresponsible.
By law, the sole obligation of public corporations is to maximize profit for shareholders.
Unlike human beings, corporations have only one motive: to get as much stuff as possible through animalistic greed, with the single focus of profit maximization.
HUMAN RIGHTS VS. SHAREHOLDER’S DIVIDENDS
Corporate personhood is the legal notion that a corporation, separately from its associated human beings (like owners, managers, or employees), has at least some of the legal rights and responsibilities enjoyed by natural “persons” (physical humans). For example, corporations have the right to enter into contracts with other parties and to sue or be sued in court in the same way as natural persons or unincorporated associations of persons.
In a U.S. historical context, the phrase ‘Corporate Personhood’ refers to the ongoing legal debate over the extent to which rights traditionally associated with natural persons should also be afforded to corporations.
A headnote issued by the Court Reporter in the 1886 Supreme Court case Santa Clara County v. Southern Pacific Railroad Co. claimed to state the sense of the Court regarding the equal protection clause of the Fourteenth Amendment as it applies to corporations, without the Court having actually made a decision or issued a written opinion on that issue. This was the first time that the Supreme Court was reported to hold that the Fourteenth Amendment’s equal protection clause granted constitutional protections to corporations as well as to natural persons, although numerous other cases, since Dartmouth College v. Woodward in 1819, had recognized that corporations were entitled to some of the protections of the Constitution.
In Burwell v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc., the Court found that the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993 exempted Hobby Lobby from aspects of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act because those aspects placed a substantial burden on the closely held company’s owners’ exercise of free religion.
As a matter of interpretation of the word “person” in the Fourteenth Amendment, U.S. courts have extended certain constitutional protections to corporations. The basis for allowing corporations to assert such protections under the U.S. Constitution is that they are organizations of people, and the people should not be deprived of their constitutional rights when they act collectively. Thus, treating corporations as having legal rights allows corporations to sue and to be sued, provides a single entity for easier taxation and regulation, simplifies complex transactions that would otherwise involve, in the case of large corporations, thousands of people, and protects the individual rights of the shareholders as well as the right of association.
Generally, corporations are not able to claim constitutional protections that would not otherwise be available to persons acting as a group. For example, the Supreme Court has not recognized a Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination for a corporation, since the right can be exercised only on an individual basis. Since the Supreme Court’s ruling in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission in 2010, upholding the rights of corporations to make political expenditures under the First Amendment, there have been several calls for a Constitutional amendment to abolish corporate personhood.
During the colonial era, British corporations were chartered by the crown to do business in North America. This practice continued in the early United States. They were often granted monopolies as part of the chartering process. For example, the controversial Bank Bill of 1791 chartered a 20-year corporate monopoly for the First Bank of the United States. Although the Federal government has from time to time chartered corporations, the general chartering of corporations has been left to the states.
In the late 18th and early 19th centuries, corporations began to be chartered in greater numbers by the states, under general laws allowing for incorporation at the initiative of citizens, rather than through specific acts of the legislature.
In the late 19th century, most notably in New Jersey and Delaware, anyone could form corporations without any particular governmental grant or authorization, and thus without the government-granted monopolies that had been common in charters granted by the Crown or by acts of the legislature.
In 1818, the United States Supreme Court decided Trustees of Dartmouth College v. Woodward – 17 U.S. 518 (1819), writing: “The opinion of the Court, after mature deliberation, is that this corporate charter is a contract, the obligation of which cannot be impaired without violating the Constitution of the United States. This opinion appears to us to be equally supported by reason, and by the former decisions of this Court.” Beginning with this opinion, the U.S. Supreme Court has continuously recognized corporations as having the same rights as natural persons to contract and to enforce contracts.
The corporate personhood aspect of the campaign finance debate turns on Buckley v. Valeo (1976) and Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission (2010): Buckley ruled that political spending is protected by the First Amendment right to free speech, while Citizens United ruled that corporate political spending is protected, holding that corporations have a First Amendment right to free speech.
The laws of the United States hold that a legal entity (like a corporation or non-profit organization) shall be treated under the law as a person except when otherwise noted. This rule of construction is specified in 1 U.S.C. §1 (United States Code), which states:
In determining the meaning of any Act of Congress, unless the context indicates otherwise—the words “person” and “whoever” include corporations, companies, associations, firms, partnerships, societies, and joint stock companies, as well as individuals.
THE ARCHETYPAL BRITISH CORPORATION
The British East India Company is one of the worst corporations ever and is the perfect example that modern corporate monopolies follow. These guys manufactured wars with India, Burma and China. You think Nestlé is bad for sucking up all the water in some African regions and selling it back to them? These guys literally had their own beer created (India Pale Ale) that they used to destroy India’s native water replenishment.
You think Bayer is evil for selling bad drugs infected with poison? The British East India Company addicted the majority of the Chinese population to opium so that they could continue their monopoly and increase shareholder’s dividends.
British East India CoThe British East India Company commanded an army, stole whatever land they wanted, and were slavers extraordinaire. They trafficked drugs, guns, people, and resources cheerfully certain that Africans and Asians were subhuman anyway so it didn’t matter. They directed nations, founded colonies, and conquered an entire continent — in addition to being far and away the richest and most powerful corporation in history, they’ve probably had the biggest impact on world history of any company.
They were only disbanded after the British Empire assumed direct control of India after the British East India Company’s mismanagement caused widespread revolts and massacres. They finally filed for bankruptcy after the British government essentially had them nationalized into British imperialism and corporatism.
The British East India Company is often the role model for modern corporations that are the top military contractors in the world. Below is a list of the world’s largest arms manufacturers and other military service companies who profit the most from a war-driven economy just like the British East India Company did.
The information below is based on a list published by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute for 2015.
Boeing 96.1 billion
Airbus 71.4 billion
United Technologies 61.0 billion
Lockheed Martin 46.1 billion
General Dynamics 31.4 billion
BAE Systems 27.3 billion
Raytheon 23.2 billion
Northrop Grumman 20.0 billion
Leonardo S.p.A. 14.4 billion
LC Technologies 10.4 billion
War is big business for corporations who, in almost all cases, are transnational companies serving many other nations – our enemies included. Whoever can pay gets to play with these war-mongers and economic terrorists. Often, these very corporations get no-bid contracts and then rip-off the government with impunity. The Pentagon alone is missing trillions in transactions with these warlord corporations. Hardly a single U. S. military contractor doesn’t have multiple cases of misconduct, price manipulation, and criminal behavior on a very regular basis.
THE LARGER THE COMPANY, THE MORE BLATANT THE CRIMES AND IN ALMOST ALL CASES, NO ONE EVER GOES TO JAIL – EVEN WHEN PEOPLE DIE FROM CORPORATE ACTION.
Corporations and corruption go hand in glove and corruption is an expected outcome that companies make plans for ahead of time. The top executive in large corporations all have “golden parachutes” that protect them from being held personally responsible for their corporate crimes because they know ahead of time that they are going to commit those crimes.
Corporate warlords are corrupt through and through and rotate in and out of top positions in the corporate world like musical chairs. These warlords are fired at one corporation for heinous crimes on one day but hired a week later by another corporation to carry out their criminal agenda. Fines and penalties are exacted on these warlords, and no one bats an eye. Paying governmental fines from budgeted crimes is simply part of corporate daily business and it is a given that top executives seldom ever go to jail.
CORPORATE MISCONDUCT PRODUCES FINES NOT JAIL TIME
Corporate misconduct is a “standard operating procedure” which is expected and government fines are simply part of “doing business” that is built into the budget from the beginning. Below are just a few examples of the corruption documented at the Project On Government Oversite website at: http://www.pogo.org/about/. The chart names the company, number of misconduct instances and the total penalties.
Corporate rip off chart
The corporate “arms industry” is composed of a handful of global corporations responsible for the manufacturing and sales of weapons and military technology. The Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) estimated that global military expenditures were roughly $1.8 trillion per year at a minimum.
Global corporate arms sales control the economic world and kills millions of people for the sake of shareholder’s dividends. Profits drive the global economic machine that consumes human life. One is not even considered a “bad person” for being a corporate arms dealer. As a matter of fact, arms dealers like Adnan Khashoggi, Hillary and Bill Clinton, George H. W. Bush’s Far West Group, Halliburton, Blackwater, etc., are often well-respected by world leaders and a special place is set for them at state dinners.
One might ask how in the world we have arrived at the point that corporations of all sorts rule our world and we knew nothing of it except rumors of “conspiracy theories” that claimed the Rothschilds, the Queen, and central bankers own the world.

Who knew that the old British systems have bled into American systems through 10,000 shadow government workers called Senior Executive Service members who control all U. S. Federal government agencies?
Who could have imagined that the British Inns of Court infiltrated the America justice system as early as the Declaration of Independence through lawyers who were loyal to the Crown?
Who could have imagined the Fake Justice system that would come to rule America?
We need a historical perspective to answer these questions and the article below is a wonderful summary of the key points concerning the history of corporations in America. We could not say these ideas in fewer words, so we leave it to the authors from Reclaim Democracy to inform our perspective of the history of U. S. corporations.
OUR HIDDEN HISTORY OF CORPORATIONS IN THE UNITED STATES
THE FOLLOWING IS A CONDENSED VERSION OF ARTICLES TAKEN FROM THE WEBSITE RECLAIM DEMOCRACY WHICH PROVIDE AN EXCELLENT SUMMARY OF THE HIDDEN HISTORY OF CORPORATIONS
When American colonists declared independence from England in 1776, they also freed themselves from control by English corporations that extracted their wealth and dominated trade. After fighting a revolution to end this exploitation, our country’s founders retained a healthy fear of corporate power and wisely limited corporations exclusively to a business role. Corporations were forbidden from attempting to influence elections, public policy, and other realms of civic society.
Initially, the privilege of incorporation was granted selectively to enable activities that benefited the public, such as construction of roads or canals. Enabling shareholders to profit was seen as a means to that end. The states also imposed conditions:
Corporate charters (licenses to exist) were granted for a limited time and could be revoked promptly for violating laws.
Corporations could engage only in activities necessary to fulfill their chartered purpose.
Corporations could not own stock in other corporations nor own any property that was not essential to fulfilling their chartered purpose.
Corporations were often terminated if they exceeded their authority or caused public harm.
Owners and managers were responsible for criminal acts committed on the job.
Corporations could not make any political or charitable contributions nor spend money to influence law-making.
For 100 years after the American Revolution, legislators maintained tight control of the corporate chartering process. Because of widespread public opposition, early legislators granted very few corporate charters, and only after debate. Citizens governed corporations by detailing operating conditions not just in charters but also in state constitutions and state laws. Incorporated businesses were prohibited from taking any action that legislators did not specifically allow.
States also limited corporate charters to a set number of years. Unless a legislature renewed an expiring charter, the corporation was dissolved and its assets were divided among shareholders. Citizen authority clauses limited capitalization, debts, land holdings, and sometimes, even profits. They required a company’s accounting books to be turned over to a legislature upon request. The power of large shareholders was limited by scaled voting, so that large and small investors had equal voting rights. Interlocking directorates were outlawed. Shareholders had the right to remove directors at will.
In Europe, charters protected directors and stockholders from liability for debts and harms caused by their corporations. American legislators explicitly rejected this corporate shield. The penalty for abuse or misuse of the charter was not a plea bargain and a fine, but dissolution of the corporation.
In 1819, the U.S. Supreme Court tried to strip states of this sovereign right by overruling a lower court’s decision that allowed New Hampshire to revoke a charter granted to Dartmouth College by King George III. The Court claimed that since the charter contained no revocation clause, it could not be withdrawn. The Supreme Court’s attack on state sovereignty outraged citizens. Laws were written or re-written and new state constitutional amendments passed to circumvent the Dartmouth College v Woodward ruling.
Over several decades starting in 1844, nineteen states amended their constitutions to make corporate charters subject to alteration or revocation by their legislatures. As late as 1855, it seemed that the Supreme Court had gotten the people’s message when in Dodge v. Woolsey it reaffirmed state’s powers over “artificial bodies.”
Contests over charters were battles to control labor, resources, community rights, and political sovereignty. More and more frequently, corporations were abusing their charters to become conglomerates and trusts. They converted the nation’s resources and treasures into private fortunes, creating factory systems and company towns. Political power began flowing to absentee owners, rather than community-rooted enterprises.
The industrial age forced a nation of farmers to become wage earners, and they became fearful of unemployment–a new fear that corporations quickly learned to exploit. Company towns arose and blacklists of labor organizers and workers who spoke up for their rights became common. When workers began to organize, industrialists and bankers hired private armies to keep them in line. They bought newspapers to paint businessmen as heroes and shape public opinion. Corporations bought state legislators, then announced legislators were corrupt and said that they used too much of the public’s resources to scrutinize every charter application and corporate operation.
Government spending during the Civil War brought these corporations fantastic wealth. Corporate executives paid “borers” to infest Congress and state capitals, bribing elected and appointed officials alike. During this time, legislators were persuaded to give corporations limited liability, decreased citizen authority over them, and extended durations of charters.
Attempts were made to keep strong charter laws in place, but with the courts applying legal doctrines that made protection of corporations and corporate property the center of constitutional law, citizen sovereignty was undermined. As corporations grew stronger, government and the courts became easier prey. They freely reinterpreted the U.S. Constitution and transformed common law doctrines.
One of the most severe blows to citizen authority arose out of the 1886 Supreme Court case of Santa Clara County v. Southern Pacific Railroad. Though the court did not make a ruling on the question of “corporate personhood,” thanks to misleading notes of a clerk, the decision subsequently was used as precedent to hold that a corporation was a “natural person.” From that point on, the 14th Amendment, enacted to protect rights of freed slaves, was used routinely to grant corporations constitutional “personhood.” Justices have since struck down hundreds of local, state and federal laws enacted to protect people from corporate harm based on this illegitimate premise. Armed with these “rights,” corporations increased control over resources, jobs, commerce, politicians, even judges and the law.
A United States Congressional committee concluded in 1941, “The principal instrument of the concentration of economic power and wealth has been the corporate charter with unlimited power….”
(END OF SELECTION)
Many U.S.-based corporations are now transnational, but the corrupted charter remains the legal basis for their existence. Citizens can reassert the convictions of our nation’s founders who struggled successfully to free us from corporate rule in the past. These changes must occur at the most fundamental level — the U.S. Constitution.
A SHORT LIST OF SOME CORPORATE CRIMES
We have established that corporations often willfully conduct “misconduct” knowing that they will simply have to pay a fee, if caught. No “one” is actually conducting a criminal act because a corporation is a “person” – but is also “not a person” who can be locked up for committing crimes, even murder. The list of corporate evil includes the crimes of the Dutch East India and British East India companies which continue to this day: war, murder, slavery, theft, rape, poisoning, torture, etc., etc., etc., ad nauseam. We the People are well aware of the crimes and have all suffered the misfortunes of corporate greed and their insatiable need to control our economic, political, and personal lives.
In an effort to show some well-known corporations’ evil sins, we bring you a “short-list” of some of the more egregious criminal corporate activities that can be found in open media. Mind you, this is a very short-list of the many crimes of corporations.
Dow Chemical ravaged the health of millions of Vietnamese and U.S. Veterans caused by its lethal Vietnam War defoliant, Agent Orange.
Dow developed and perfected Napalm, a brutal chemical weapon that burned many innocents to death in Vietnam and other wars.
In 1988, Dow provided pesticides to Saddam Hussein despite warnings that they could be used to produce chemical weapons.
On December 3, 1984, a chemical leak from a UCC pesticide plant in Bhopal gassed thousands of people to death and left more than 150,000 disabled or dying. Dow still refuses to address its liabilities in Bhopal.
Dow has been producing chlorinated chemicals and burning and burying its waste, including chemicals that make up Agent Orange.
In New Plymouth, 500,000 gallons of Agent Orange were produced and thousands of tons of dioxin-laced waste was dumped in agricultural fields.
Monsanto is, by far, the largest producer of genetically engineered seeds in the world, dominating 70% to 100% of the market for crops such as soy, cotton, wheat and corn.
Monsanto is the world’s leading producer of the herbicide glyphosate, marketed as Roundup. Roundup is sold to small farmers as a pesticide, yet harms crops in the long run as the toxins accumulate in the soil.
Plants exposed to Roundup eventually become infertile, forcing farmers to purchase genetically modified Roundup Ready Seed, a seed that resists the herbicide. This creates a cycle of dependency on Monsanto for both the weed killer and the only seed that can resist it. Both products are patented, and sold at inflated prices.
Exposure to Roundup is documented to cause cancers, skin disorders, spontaneous abortions, premature births, and damage to the gastrointestinal and nervous systems.
According to the India Committee of the Netherlands and the International Labor Rights Fund, Monsanto also employs child labor.
In India, an estimated 12,375 children work in cottonseed production for farmers paid by Indian and multinational seed companies, including Monsanto.
DynCorp, one of the providers of mercenary services, guarded Afghan statesmen and African oil fields, trained Iraqi police forces, eradicated Colombian coca plants, and protected business interests in hurricane-devastated New Orleans.
DynCorp’s fumigation of coca crops along the Colombian-Ecuadorian border led Ecuadorian peasants to sue DynCorp.
In 2001, a mechanic with DynCorp blew the whistle on DynCorp employees in Bosnia for rape and trading girls as young as 12 into sex slavery.
KBR (Kellogg, Brown and Root)
KBR, a subsidiary of Halliburton Corporation, is notorious for its fraudulent bookkeeping, dishonest billing practices with US taxpayer dollars and no-bid contracts.
In June 2005, a previously secret Pentagon audit criticized $1.4 billion in “questioned” and “unsupported” expenditures.
In 2002 the company paid $2 million to settle a Justice Department lawsuit that accused KBR of inflating contract prices at Fort Ord, California.
Many third-country national (TCN) laborers have been hired by KBR with few protections and uncertain legal status. TCNs often sleep in crowded trailers and wait outside in scorching heat for food rations. Many lack adequate medical care and put in hard labor seven days a week, 10 hours or more a day.
Nestle, the third largest buyer of cocoa from the Ivory Coast, is well aware of the tragically unjust labor practices taking place on the farms with which it continues to do business.
Nestle and other chocolate manufacturers agreed to end the use of abusive and forced child labor on cocoa farms by July 1, 2005, but they failed to do so.
Nestle is notorious for its aggressive marketing of infant formula in poor countries in the 1980s. Because of this practice, Nestle is still one of the most boycotted corporations in the world, and its infant formula is still controversial.
In Italy in 2005, police seized more than two million liters of Nestle infant formula that was contaminated with the chemical isopropylthioxanthone (ITX).
Violations of labor rights are reported from Nestle factories in numerous countries. In Colombia, Nestle replaced the entire factory staff with lower-wage workers and did not renew the collective employment contract.
Philip Morris USA and Philip Morris International
Among tobacco companies, Philip Morris is notorious. Now called Altria, it is the world’s largest and most profitable cigarette corporation that kills millions a year through their deadly products.
Documents uncovered in a lawsuit filed against the tobacco industry by the state of Minnesota showed that Philip Morris and other leading tobacco corporations knew very well of the dangers of tobacco products and the addictiveness of nicotine.
Although the company says it doesn’t want kids to smoke, it spends millions of dollars every day marketing and promoting cigarettes to youth.
Overseas, it has even hired underage “Marlboro girls” to distribute free cigarettes to other children and sponsored concerts where cigarettes were handed out to minors.
Philip Morris has aggressively moved into ‘developing country’ markets, where smoking and smoking-related deaths are on the rise.
Preliminary numbers released by the World Health Organization predict global deaths due to smoking-related illnesses will nearly double by 2020, with more than three-quarters of those deaths in the developing world.
Wal-Mart is the biggest corporation in the world that has wiped out its competition. It owns 5,100 stores worldwide and employs 1.3 million workers in the United States and 400,000 abroad, as well as millions more in the factories of its suppliers.
Wal-Mart steamrolls its way into every possible town, destroying local supermarkets and countless small businesses.
Wal-Mart has a long track record of worker abuse, from forced overtime to sex discrimination to illegal child labor to relentless union busting.
Wal-Mart also notoriously fails to provide health insurance to over half of its employees, who are then left to rely on themselves or taxpayers, who provide for a portion of their healthcare needs through government Medicaid.
In September 2005, the International Labor Rights Fund filed a lawsuit on behalf of Wal-Mart supplier sweatshop workers in China, Indonesia, Bangladesh, Nicaragua and Swaziland. The workers were denied minimum wages, forced to work overtime without compensation, and were denied legally mandated health care.
Other worker rights violations that have been found in foreign factories that produce goods for Wal-Mart include locked bathrooms, starvation wages, pregnancy tests, denial of access to health care, and workers being fired and blacklisted if they try to defend their rights.
The petrochemical company Chevron is guilty of some of the worst environmental and human rights abuses in the world. From 1964 to 1992, Texaco (which transferred operations to Chevron after being bought out in 2001) unleashed a toxic “Rainforest Chernobyl” in Ecuador by leaving over 600 unlined oil pits in pristine northern Amazon rainforests and dumping 18 billion gallons of toxic production water into rivers used for bathing water.
Local communities have suffered severe health effects, including cancer, skin lesions, birth defects, and spontaneous abortions.
Chevron is responsible for the violent repression of peaceful opposition to oil extraction. In Nigeria, Chevron has hired private military personnel to open fire on peaceful protestors who oppose oil extraction in the Niger Delta.
Chevron is responsible for widespread health problems in Richmond, California, where one of Chevron’s largest refineries is located. Processing 350,000 barrels of oil a day, the Richmond refinery produces oil flares and toxic waste in the Richmond area. As a result, local residents suffer from high rates of lupus, skin rashes, rheumatic fever, liver problems, kidney problems, tumors, cancer, asthma, and eye problems.
Chevron’s Unocal Corporation, in December 2004, settled a lawsuit filed by 15 Burmese villagers, in which the villagers alleged Unocal’s complicity in a range of human rights violations in Burma, including rape, summary execution, torture, forced labor and forced migration.
Coca-Cola Company leads in the abuse of workers’ rights, assassinations, water privatization, and worker discrimination. Between 1989 and 2002, eight union leaders from Coca-Cola bottling plants in Colombia were killed after protesting the company’s labor practices.
Hundreds of other Coca-Cola workers who have joined or considered joining the Colombian union SINALTRAINAL have been kidnapped, tortured, and detained by paramilitaries who are hired to intimidate workers to prevent them from unionizing.
In India, Coca-Cola destroys local agriculture by privatizing the country’s water resources.
In Plachimada, Kerala, Coca-Cola extracted 1.5 million liters of deep well water, which they bottled and sold under the names Dasani and BonAqua. The groundwater was severely depleted, affecting thousands of communities with water shortages and destroying agricultural activity. As a result, the remaining water became contaminated with high chloride and bacteria levels, leading to scabs, eye problems, and stomach aches in the local population.
Pfizer is the largest pharmaceutical company in the world; it is also one of the worst abusers of the human right of universal access to HIV/AIDS medicine.
In addition to Viagra, Zoloft, Zithromax and Norvasc, Pfizer produces the drug fluconazole (an antifungal used by AIDS patients) under the name Diflucan, and sells it at inflated prices most poor people cannot afford.
The company refuses to grant generic licenses of fluconazole to governments in countries like Brazil, South Africa, or Dominican Republic, where patients are forced to pay $20 per weekly pill, though the average national wage is only $120 per month.
Pfizer also values shareholder profits over safety standards. In Europe in 2005, it withdrew from scientific studies of a new class of AIDS drugs called CCR5 inhibitors, choosing instead to rush its own untested CCR5 inhibitor onto the European market without full information about the drug’s side effects.
Suez-Lyonnaise Des Eaux
The privatization of water has had a disastrous impact on the human right to clean water, and the French company Suez is the worst perpetrator of this abuse. The company’s billions of dollars in profit come at the expense of poor people living in countries where thousands lack access to potable water, and, because of private water contracts, are also facing skyrocketing water prices.
Suez goes by many names around the world–Ondeo, SITA and others–to mask its worldwide net of controversial activities.
In Manila, Philippines, after seven years of water privatization under a Suez company (Maynilad Water) contract, studies showed that water rates increased in some neighborhoods by 400 to 700 percent. These studies also showed that the negligence of the company resulted in cholera and gastroenteritis outbreaks that killed six people and severely sickened 725 in Manila’s Tondo district.
In Bolivia, a Suez company (Aguas de Illimani) left 200,000 people without access to water and caused a revolt when it tried to charge between $335 and $445 to connect a private home to the water supply. Countless people were unable to afford this charge in a country whose yearly per capita GDP is $915.
Credit Suisse has been charged with corporate secrecy mixed with tax evasion and fined $2.88 billion pleading guilty to criminal charges of helping U.S. citizens evade taxes
Credit Suisse helped 22,000 Americans evade taxes, but the bank did not have to reveal its clients’ names.
GlaxoSmithKline has been charged and fined for branding and hiding safety information with $3 billion in fines after pleading guilty to misbranding the drugs Paxil and Wellbutrin.
They were also charged with hiding safety information from the FDS, fraud, rigged prices, false claims, failure to report safety data, and aggressive marketing.
GlaxoSmithKline targeted physicians to promote the drugs for non-FDA approved uses. Some wonder if the $3 billion fine was punitive enough given the $25 billion in sales from the respective drugs.
Goldman Sachs has been charged with representing toxic securities to investors.
They were charged $5 billion in fines for misleading investors about residential mortgage-backed securities.
Goldman Sachs was held culpable for its role in helping ignite the 2008 Global Financial Crisis.
Anadarko Petroleum was charged with passing the buck on major environmental crimes with $5.15 billion in fines for trying to avoid paying for environmental contamination.
In 2014, Citigroup settled with federal and state agencies for $7 billion for its role in the 2008 financial crisis for knowing the mortgages it had sold were bad while representing the securitized mortgages as good investments.
BNP Paribas has been charged with flouting US economic sanctions and made to pay $8.9 billion in fines.
In 2014, BNP Paribas, pleaded guilty to illegally processing transactions from 2004-2012 through the U.S. financial system from countries that were under U.S. economic sanctions such as Sudan, Iran, and Cuba.
In 2013, JPMorgan was charged for its role in causing the 2008 financial crisis.
The company agreed to pay $13 billion, which at the time was the largest U.S. corporate settlement in history.
Volkswagen got caught cheating on emissions tests and deceiving its customers.
In June 2016, the German automaker agreed to a $14.7 billion settlement with the U.S. government.
Bank of America
In 2014, Bank of America paid out the largest settlement in history (at the time) for financial fraud leading up to and during the mortgage crisis of 2008.
The U.S. government concluded that Bank of America helped exacerbate the financial crisis by engaging in unlawful conduct.
Bank of America lied to investors about the quality of its residential mortgage-backed securities, but it also was responsible for the origination and underwriting of many of the bad mortgages in the first place.
In 2016, British Petroleum was found guilty of criminal manslaughter and environmental crimesand ordered to pay $20.8 billion — the largest fine ever levied by the Department of Justice.
BP was found to be “grossly negligent” and the story of the disaster reveals a fatally flawed well design, faulty emergency equipment, inadequate safety precautions and an emergency contingency plan rife with errors and miscalculations.
BP pleaded guilty to eleven counts of manslaughter for the eleven crew members who died.
Following the disaster, BP played down the severityof the spill, and even lied to Congress about how much oil was leaking leading to a guilty plea of obstruction of justice.
BP faced a $525 million fine from the SEC for hiding information from investors.
HOW TO STOP CORPORATE CORRUPTION
Corporations make a tremendous amount of money by scamming us, screwing us, stealing from us, killing us, poisoning us, destroying our environment or some other crime that one way or another a “working democracy” would stop immediately. Corporations use a portion of the money they are accumulating from not paying taxes to pay off legislators, regulators, inspectors — Senior Executive Service members — to keep them from stopping the corporation from what they are doing that is illegal or unethical.
Corporations, through lobbyists, pay off others in the government to stop the rest of the government from doing anything about the corruption as they all avert their eyes from the scene of the crime.
Meanwhile, corporations spend a bit more of that tax-free money on marketing, propaganda, PR, and subliminal programming to make us look the other way and not notice the crimes. And so the cycle continues as corporate dynasties of monarchs rule from economic fortresses, often hiding behind government agencies. As We the People become poorer, corporations grow richer. As the cycle continues and strengthens each year, corporations become more ensconced in their power and the corrupt streams that reach into our government, at all levels.
Corporations get rich from corruption, bribery, buying elections, buying legislators, purchasing government subsidies, tax breaks, handouts and bailouts while they are protected by many layers of courts, judges, and lawyers.
All we really have to do to beat this vicious cycle of corporate corruption is remember that the first three words of the U. S. Constitution are “We the People.” We the People have unalienable rights in America, not corporations. We the People have U. S. Constitutional rights, not corporations. We the People own America and its resources, not corporations. We the People elect those who make the laws, not corporations.
After fighting a revolution to end exploitation by the British monarchy, the church, and corporations, our country’s founders retained a healthy fear of corporate power and wisely limited corporations exclusively to a business role. Corporations were forbidden from attempting to influence elections, public policy, and other realms of civic society.
Initially, the privilege of incorporation was granted selectively to enable activities that benefited the public, such as construction of roads or canals. Enabling shareholders to profit was seen as a means to that end.
In our current situation, America simply needs to go back to the original foundations of corporate structure that kept corporations from acting like sovereign monarchs and were kept in check by state legislatures, not the current federal systems that are supported by “superior” federal courts. A better ‘checks and balance system’ on corporations would produce a tremendous amount of taxes that are now flowing out of America at a rate that is staggering. Some say over 50% of America’s wealth leaves each year through off-shore corporations and their tax-havens.
Corporations want the rights of a “person” without any of the responsibilities. This simply must end. Corporations act as criminals far below the nature of a “person” and thus have shown the world their true nature; an immoral nature that acts with impunity, lawlessness, and with a superiority (royalty) that is “above a person” when, in fact, corporation are “less than a person.”
The “old rules” for corporations will work quite well as a new standard by which all American corporations must abide. Foreign corporation will have to abide by the same rules and make sure to pay taxes and be held responsible for all applicable laws.
THE RENEWED CORPORATE RULES OF AMERICA
Corporate charters (licenses to exist) are granted for a limited time by an American agency and can be revoked promptly for violating laws.
Corporations may engage only in activities necessary to fulfill their chartered purpose.
Corporations may not own stock in other corporations nor own any property that is not essential to fulfilling their chartered purpose.
Corporations are terminated if they exceed their authority or cause public harm.
Owners and managers are responsible for criminal acts committed on the job.
Corporations may not make any political or charitable contributions nor spend money to influence law-making.
SUGGESTIONS TO END CORPORATE FASCISM
The Anonymous Patriots always like to point in the direction of positive change, even in the face of evil that begs to be destroyed. We believe that change can happen overnight once the force of consciousness reaches critical mass on a particular issue. Corporate corruption exists because of corrupt laws, lawyers, judges, and courts (Fake Justice) that make it perfectly legal for corporations to be immune from most types of prosecution – they are above the law like nobility and the clergy.
WE THE PEOPLE CAN CHANGE THE TWISTED LAWS BACK TO THE WAY THEY WERE WHEN CORPORATIONS IN AMERICA WERE CONTROLLED BY AMERICANS, INSTEAD OF THE OTHER WAY ROUND.
We offer the suggestions below as a beginning to correct the problem and put Justice back into the American system of law. We the People will then become the sovereign that we are, and our unalienable rights will not be shared with international corporations that demand to have higher rights granted by some false privilege or unfounded claim.
We can stop corporations from corrupting us with the money that our laws allow corporations to accumulate tax-free by simply taxing appropriately and not allowing off-shore tax havens. Corporations must pay their fair share of taxes.
We can end corporate lobbying completely and stop all influence peddling for money in all areas of the government. When you stop the flow of money to politicians, laws will not be geared to corporate interests and will return to We the People.
We can stop corporate Fake News and main stream media propaganda that is simply yellow journalism for corporate interests. Reuters and the Associated Press can be closed down for indecency in broadcastings, false reporting, fake news, and political manipulation.
We can end corporate impunity in the courts by stopped the Supreme Court’s recognition of a corporation as a “person” and restructure state and federal courts to limit federal courts to the single jurisdiction of Washington D. C., the only place they have authority.
We can end all corporate donations to elections and end corporate tax-free donations altogether.
We can close international loopholes for transnational corporations that allow them to evade taxes in America.
We can limit U. S. governmental contracts to American corporations only.
We can stop U. S. funds from being given to foreign corporations which dry up the USAID and OPIC programs.
We can prosecute Serco and the Crown Agents for their economics crimes, fraud, and theft.
We can write new legislation limiting the power of corporations (especially banks and brokers) and make them responsible for the same laws that all America’s are held to along with the punishments associated with those crimes.
