Ernst Zundel Warns Jews About Doing To America What They Did To Germany https://youtu.be/auLMUpC5LxU


What ever a Nation allows to happen to the least of their citizens will eventually happen to all of its citizens.

The smart meters are for the threat assessment. They can see into your homes and see your guns. This is why they are so adamant about putting them on your homes. They get money for the threat assessment.

I agree with much of what you said however some of it needs more qualifying before I would take a stand one way or the other. Retired LEO here for the last 22 years and I saw the beginning of this in the mid 80's. I never cared for the swat teams in their camo jungle fatigues, helmets and stun grenades. They got all of that with federal grants you know; much of it surplus military equipment after VietNam. The young kids coming onto the department– that's all they wanted to do. That, and throw people to the ground. Somewhere… Read more »


American troops have been treating people of other countries like this for decades. What the American people have tolerated when their troops ill treat people of other countries have returned to them. Jesus taught you to do unto others what you would have done to you…the law of karma.

DAPL was a training exercise for military grade police uniform & equipment. They're getting ready should the dollar crash and the inevitable uprising come.
What the government does abroad will eventually be done at home.

The neocons have complete control of Trump, just like they did of Obama and Bush. The neocons have been in control of foreign policy since 9/11, which was an inside job to justify illegal wars based on lies for regime change, resource and currency control. The neocons want war with Iran and now they are planning another false flag attempt against Assad. The neocons want conflict with Russia, they do not want peace on the planet. The neocons serve the corrupt central banking institutions agenda to the hilt.

MONEY the root of all evil. Fukushima D…. the destruction of humanity


Man after that talk I am scared to tap the like button.


Their 911 inside job was the catalyst to madness.

A Voice of Sanity ! So where is the rest of America ?

We only WISH we were the government. If we were the government, there would be PEACE throughout the world and we would not call ourselves government. Governments are mercenaries to world rulers a/k/a Bank of international Settlements. Politicians in government are sellouts to these world rulers. We are the gullible slaves if the TRUTH be told. We even 'vote" for our continued oppression in every election. The way to stop being enslaved is to stop voting for politicians a/k/a slave masters in elections.

Know your rights? They don't care about your rights. They are enforcing the law. That's martial law.
Knowing the things you know, you think they care about your rights? No, it's not the people's fault. Don't lay a guilt trip on the people. They didn't vote for this. Bush Sr. told Congress he wanted a NWO. Supposedly, His Grandfather Prescot Bush was a banker and he invested in Adoft Hitler. And that's how they became wealthy.

They SWATTED me back when Obama was in office for Facebook posts too. Put me in a mental hospital for 10 days. It was fucking hell. Ruined my fucking life. Got no justice. I'm still fucked up from it. Physically and mentally. They tortured me in Atlanta GA for defending our Rights and Constitution using free speech on facebook. I fucking hate this country and people now. I never leave my apartment. I committed no crime, THEY RUINED MY LIFE, they live off my tax dollars, and get medals and wives and kids and homes. They even sent me the… Read more »


America is making the same imperialistic mistake that the Roman empire did b4 it collapsed ~ pouring all its money into the military industrial complex…

[Alex ]

Very well said


"A revolution every 50 years is necessary to keep the government honest." We are long over due and the civil war was a war against State's Rights and is where our republic was pushed aside and mob rule was promoted instead. Our schools stopped teaching real civics but "American History."


Hollow point bullets are designed to prevent over-penetration, and therefore keep innocents safe. I HOPE that my local PD uses them. Otherwise, great talk… I am glad we have lawyers like this protecting personal freedom and the rule of law.

When marijuana probation ends the police state will become obsolete, right? What will the police do when the people are free from their violence?
