“living at the near edge of over there” is a quote from a book I read some time ago (and which in all likelihood is still packed in a box) but when I google the quote, nothing comes up. 

The book, if memory serves me correctly, was one written by a frequent author, a psychiatrist by the name of Colin Ross, M.D., about frequent sequelae to repeated traumatic abuse. 

Do you feel like you are living at the near edge of over there? 


The citizens of the United States still do not know why their government destroyed Iraq. “National Security” will prevent them from ever knowing. “National Security” is the cloak behind which hides the crimes of the US government.

Ukrainian investigators believe the explosion on the Urengoi-Pomary-Uzhgorod gas pipeline in Ukraine was caused by an Explosive Device placed under a concrete block, Ukraine’s Interior Minister Arseniy Avakov said Wednesday.

“We suppose that an explosive device was placed at the base of the cement foundation of the pipeline, and later two short explosions occurred, then one large one,” Avakov said during a government session.

Here is what I appreciate as an editorial: 


Fear is the ultimate enemy of liberty. Since 9/11 our “leaders”, the smiling wolves in sheep’s clothing, have capitalized on the fear of the people to lead us down the thorny path of slavery. Thirteen years after 9/11 we are less free, and less secure than we have ever been. This is not a result of the shooters, or the terrorists, but a result of the utter failure of the people to stand up for their essential liberties from those who seek to deny them to us.  In short, the problem is not in our constitution, but in ourselves.

It is a symptom of our failure as a people to honor our essential liberties that has led us to the sorry state that we find ourselves in. We take a knee jerk reaction to crisis; foolishly believing that denying our essential liberties will eliminate abuses by the few.  Nowhere is this logical fallacy more apparent than in the current assaults on the second amendment.

This is illogical on its face because no school shooter was ever acting under a second amendment protection. Rights come with the duty of respecting the rights of others. These shooters did not just commit an act of violence; they perpetrated an act of war against the people, fundamentally and illegally denying them their rights to life. Therefore, they did not operate under any form of constitutional protection but in contrivance of such rights and liberties.

These facts show clearly that the denial of rights will have no effect on safety. We cannot barter with what is inalienable and expect anything but slavery in return. By creating artificial barriers to liberty we poison the well, ultimately killing the freedom of all people that enjoy constitutional protection all the while ensuring our victimization by the powerful, the elite and the insane.

This path will lead us only to ruin. With the denial of rights and the ever-advancing chains of slavery comes madness. Further constitutional violations will ensure only that more people will suffer, that more blood will be spilled because with slavery comes insanity. As men are caged it damages them irrevocably leading to a repressed rage that simmers ever closer to the surface.  The recent shootings are more a symptom of a culture drunk with despair and rage at the abuses it has done to itself and as we walk this thorny path, as we surrender more and more of ourselves, the pain will only grow and eventually we will all be damaged, because we will all be enslaved by the grinning elite.

We, the people, must reject the false paradigms offered as easy panaceas by our leaders. Gun Control, Ubiquitous Surveillance, and free speech zones are snake oil, meant to poison and distract the people all the while we are tied down by oppressive laws and fatal memes that security only comes through slavery.  Terrorists will not stop because we are being watched, extremists will not be silenced because the law abiding are crowded into free speech zones, and shooters will not stop the murder of our children because the law abiding are denied essential rights and protections. These problems will only grow as our liberties enter their twilight, and ultimately sunset because if we are not a free people than we are ready victims being led to the slaughter by those not only outside of our culture but by those we will beg to defend us.


Riot Control Drone called “The Skunk” 

South African company Desert Wolf yesterday unveiled its Skunk riot control drone at the IFSEC security exhibition outside Johannesburg. Armed with four paintball guns, it can fire a variety of ammunition to subdue unruly crowds.

The Skunk is designed to control crowds without endangering the lives of security staff. Bright strobe lights and on-board speakers enable operators to communicate with and warn the crowed. If things get out of control the Skunk can use its four paintball guns to disperse or mark people in the crowd. Four ammunition hoppers can load different types of ammunition such as dye marker balls, pepper spray balls or solid plastic balls.

‘We’ll turn membership of Hamas into a ticket to Hell’: Palestinians’ homes trashed as Israeli troops make 40 new arrests in hunt for three ‘kidnapped’ Jewish teenagers –Hamas denies accusations that it is behind the kidnapping of three youths 17 Jun 2014 Palestinians were today picking up the pieces of their trashed homes after Israeli troops swept through the West Bank in the hunt for three missing Jewish teenagers. Soldiers charged into homes in cities and refugee camps across the eastern Palestinian territory, turning over furniture and taking away 41 suspected Hamas members. To the east, in Gaza, homes and workplaces were shattered by a fourth straight night of Israeli air force bombardment after militants fired rockets into Israeli territory.

Russian Army Ready for Any Developments in Ukraine, World

The Russian Army is ready for any developments in Ukraine or anywhere in the world and Russian defense industry can quickly replace any imports, including those from Ukraine, Russia’s Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said at a State Duma meeting behind closed doors.


MOSCOW, June 18 (RIA Novosti) – The current president of the Russian Hockey Federation, Vladislav Tretiak, has been reelected for a third term in the office.

Tretiak grew up in a Ukrainian family, with his parents being from Sumy, Ukraine.[2] A famous story told of how Canadian scouts seriously underestimated his ability prior to the Series; they witnessed him let in eight goals on a particular night, not knowing that he had been married the previous evening (and most of the team had been in attendance).[5]

The Cause and Aims of the Ukraine War

Wed, 06/18/2014 – 04:26 — james

The following article is from Voice of Russia and it outlines exactly the game that is being played by US and European bankers at the cost of everyone else 


The war for Ukraine may soon become the war for Europe’s independence from the US and a war against the dollar. 

Ukraine will either become the battleground for a long and bloody civil war or will become the target for a Russian military intervention. From the American point of view it is a win-win situation. If there is a civil war, the delivery of natural gas to Europe will be disrupted hurting both the European and the Russian economy. If Moscow decides that it has to intervene in Ukraine, Washington will ignore the ethic Russians killed by the US-sponsored junta and will claim that Russia is an aggressor. Such a strategy will give Washington a chance to force the EU to institute hard economic sanctions against Russia, but such sanctions will hurt the EU even more than Russia . According to Sergey Glazyev, economic advisor to President Putin, European Union stands to lose 1 trillion euro, if hard economic sanctions against Russia are enacted…..

Mikhail Khazin [], the president of Neokon economic advisory company, believes that the US is trying to preemptively hurt the regional currencies and their associated economies before the US dollar loses its status as the main global currency:

“ The US doesn’t have that much time in order to prepare for a serious weakening of the US dollar on the global stage and, conversely, for a serious strengthening of regional currencies’ role. The maximum amount of time they can count on is 18 months. During this period they must prepare for a situation in which their main instrument of global control, i.e. the control of the circulation of the main global reserve and trade currency, will become seriously weakened,” he wrote in a recent blogpost cited by the Russian media outlets.

The Daily Specials at 

are devoted to the sordid details of how Israel has used the “kidnapping” of three teens as justification for arrests, raids, murder and ‘punishment’ of Palestinians


This is not by mistake or incompetence but by design. 

This article was written by Tom Chatham and originally published at Project Chesapeake

When you look at the chaos and destruction going on in the Mid-East today you are looking at the future of America. This is not by mistake or incompetence but by design.

After WWI the British and French created new countries out of the area in the Mid-East and in doing so created future states that would be unstable and ultimately fail to have national cohesion. The unnatural boundaries of these states thrust together people of different beliefs and set the stage for generations of turmoil.

When you look at the things going on in America today it is easy to see the similarities with this plan. To the south, our borders are open and a mass of humanity is flooding in and changing the demographics of the southwest. Further to the north our northern states are being flooded with Muslim refugees and changing the demographics there. At the same time, patriotic Americans are being demonized by the government and along with Christians and veterans are being pushed toward civil war by Government actions.

When you consider the Mid-East and look at the U.S it becomes easy to see the plan unfolding to create chaos here and prevent Americans from uniting against the forces that want to prepare us for subjugation.

Why would anyone want to create a failed state? It became the conclusion of the British elite many years ago that a a failed state was the easiest to control. With the internal population always warring against one another, outside forces could do as they please in the country with little hindrance from a disunited population.

With the U.S. overrun with people from other countries that do not share the same values as Americans and instead practice their own beliefs and continue to speak their own language, it is only a matter of time before America becomes chaotic and infighting begins. This will give cover to others to subjugate and control America that would not be possible by any other means.

Unchecked immigration is the only way to dilute the American demographics enough to cause fighting among diverse groups and make subjugation easier. There has always been animosity among some groups in America but not enough to start a war as most Americans could see that would destroy the good life they were leading. Many Americans know the government is trying to instigate civil war in this country but cannot understand why. Now you see the reasons in a different light and may understand a little better what is happening now.

A united America is the only thing holding back the subjugation of this nation and it is being undermined with many types of subversion that will tear the fabric of this nation and send it on its way to chaos. Everywhere you look, various groups are being pitted against one another, whites against blacks, blacks against Hispanics, liberals against conservatives, Christians against Muslims, homosexuals against heterosexuals, gun owners against gun controllers and cops against citizens just to name a few. It is all orchestrated to bring about one thing, a dysfunctional country that is easy to handle. Its hard to unite and fight the government and bankers when you are busy fighting your neighbors every day.

Many understand the global ponzi scheme of fiat currencies will collapse soon thrusting most people back onto their own resources. During this collapse, global interests cannot risk the potential of citizens to come together under nationalism and work for their own best interests. Citizens must be divided and fighting one another to insure the globalists can sweep in and take total control of populations and resources. A united America with lots of weapons will make this plan impossible. Hence the need for gun control and division.

This is the plan now unfolding in America and the more people that realize it the more control we will retain as things become chaotic. If these groups would understand how they are being used it would be easier to prevent open hostilities that would benefit a select group in the future and ultimately destroy the nation we now know. With the masses under the influence of mainstream media, it is a good bet that many will fall into this globalist trap. The only thing we can do now is prepare for the worst.

“By deafening ourselves to the emotional consequences of violence we have become confused by its relationship to sex. We have come to believe that violence equals aggression, and we have come to base our model of sexuality on our model of violence… converting an act of aggression into an act of consensual sexuality.”

children and domestic violence: get the facts 

1. Approximately 5 children die every day because of child abuse.

2. 1 out of 3 girls and 1 out of 5 boys will be sexually abused before they reach age 18.

3. 90% of child sexual abuse victims know the perpetrator in some way. 68% are abused by a family member.


How can an act of extreme violence committed by an armed male against a defenceless civilian victim go unpunished in a world which prides itself on being civilized? 


The story has also served as an inspiration for books and films like Battle Royale and The Hunger Games.
