No Matter Who Wins, the American People Lose: “The Election Will Only Determine Who Will Continue The Erosion”

by | Apr 19, 2016 | Headline News | 33 comments

Do you LOVE America?



    The things that cripple us the most as a nation are our complacencies combined with the inability to accept the ever changing, shifting paradigm that governs American society.  We are in a transitory state as we “morph” from a soft, socialist dictatorship into a full-blown totalitarian state.  All of the trimmings are not “garnishing” the platter, as the proverbial goose is not completely cooked.  We are heading in that direction daily, make no mistake about it.  Simply put, we simply will not believe what is happening to us before our eyes.

    Sometime next year the TSA and the airlines are going to require Real ID for all flights (domestic and abroad); the new proposal before the weekend was (as an action to be taken in response to the Brussels, Belgium terrorist attack) in the United States for Viper teams to be in every airport, railway station, and bus terminal.  These Viper teams (basically paramilitary police teams) are already in many of the major metropolitan areas.  The plan is for them to be not only in the New York’s and Chicago’s but also in the small towns.

    The federalization process of the local police forces is almost complete in the U.S., with only the sheriffs departments remaining to reign in under control.  Akin to the proverbial “frog in the kettle,” the feds are moving with incremental (almost glacial) slowness that seems to be not in the field of vision of most Americans.  Daily we hear rhetoric from these politicians, Obama for example, trying to draw similarities between Capitalism and Communism.

    There has been a tremendous push in the schools in the last two decades and more, to develop the “socially-conscious” mindset that in any other time would be labeled as “groupthink.”  Curriculum in the schools isn’t: it is indoctrination, plain and simple, as they bombard the post-school generations with a never-ending steady stream of canned media replete with politically correct groupthink.

    With their endless “smoke and mirrors” sideshows, they will dupe the public into thinking there are actually candidates for the election…the election…. the election…. the focal point to hypnotize the masses while they continue to pass piece after piece of nefarious legislation.  Incrementally our freedoms continue to be nibbled away at, akin to Ritz crackers floating in a pool of carp, the congressmen that are our misrepresentatives.

    But the pulse of the nation overall is weak and thready, not strong and vital.  Our manufacturing base is a shadow of its former self, and there is no end in sight to the almost limitless outsourcing as the companies try to move even more of their assets out of the country.  The United States pays the highest amount in taxes in the entire world.  The erosion of the middle class (the onslaught against it) is unrelenting.

    The oligarchs, working in conjunction with their paid-for lackeys in the government are keeping the system propped up, but it’s running on life support.  It is only a matter of time that collapse comes to a nation with no true manufacturing base that bases its entire GDP on consumer spending and “Potemkin” programs designed to bilk the consumer out of more taxes.  We are in the twilight of the day, ladies and gentlemen, with nightfall just around the corner.

    Just a matter of time before internal passports and domestic travel checkpoints.  Just a matter of time before we become another country such as Great Britain with a camera on every corner.  Just a matter of time before we pick up the reigns of the Soviet Union that Russia set aside.  In a nation of roughly 320 million people, are these “Morlocks and Eloi” the best candidates that we can field?  For the office of the President of the United States?  We don’t have a true choice, as our freedoms are eroded by the day.  The election will only determine who will continue the erosion as the United States heads down the path of collapsed and fallen empires of the past.

    Jeremiah Johnson is the Nom de plume of a retired Green Beret of the United States Army Special Forces (Airborne).  Mr. Johnson is also a Gunsmith, a Certified Master Herbalist, a Montana Master Food Preserver, and a graduate of the U.S. Army’s SERE school (Survival Evasion Resistance Escape).  He lives in a cabin in the mountains of Western Montana with his wife and three cats.

            Fire all the Embedded Politicians.


          • Trump is the ONLY Person, who has a chance to save America. The rest are Puppet Shills for the ZOG.


        • I hope and pray for a non-violent reformation or a non-violent political revolution to stave off and avert the destruction of our country and its bedrock Constitutional principles. The popular culture has eroded, the schools have eroded, the universities have eroded, the news media and the entertainment media are smut peddlers and liberal propaganda pushers, the courts can’t be trusted, and the government is an oppressive bureaucracy.

          So although one President may not turn the tide all by himself, it’s important to get the best President elected (not selected) out of the realistic possible choices.

          IMNSHO, I Choose Cruz. A Principled Constitutional Conservative who is Planned Parenthood’s #1 Enemy and who is also an ardent supporter and defender of the Second Amendment.

          • How could cruz be pp’s enemy when his wife is pure wall st? You must meet and have long talks with wall st people to fully understand the depth of their emptiness and lies and opportunism. They dont care about life, they couldnt or they wouldnt be in that business of defrauding humanity.

          • Violence is golden

          • Cruz is just another slick talking politician who speaks out of both sides of his mouth. He has become quite adroit at saying one thing while his history shows him doing the other.

            Rather than the outsider he claims to be, Ted Cruz is the ultimate establishment insider. A good example is his connection with the big Wall Street banks, including Goldman Sachs and Citibank, and their secret funding of his political career.

            Cruz is so tied in with the CFR and Goldman Sachs that the globalists would maintain control of America if he got into the WH. He supports TPP, which would destroy MORE American jobs AND even American sovereignty and our Constitution. The CFR is the operational mechanism of the global elites through which they exercise control. They are dedicated to the destruction of American sovereignty.

            Ted Cruz claims to be an expert on the Constitution, so he KNOWS that being born Canadian disqualifies him from the Office of POTUS! Rafael Edward Cruz didn’t renounce his Canadian citizenship until 18 months AFTER becoming a US Senator. If he did get the nomination, the Democrats would destroy him on his eligibility. The GOPe, being the corrupt oligarchy they have become, don’t care if Hillary wins anyway because they can “do business with her”.

            Sneaky Ted Cruz is NOT to be trusted. Colorado lawmakers who voted to scrap the election, denying the vote and voice of The People, are Ted Cruz delegates. He welcomed illegal aliens crossing the border. Cruz would be the perfect 1st president for the Globalists’ plan for the North American Union – born in Canada, with a Cuban Father, and now part of the insiders in DC.

            This election is all about is Globalism vs Freedom and independence for America as a sovereign nation. The last thing we need is another occupant of the White House who is part of the globalist agenda to take down America.

            • Cruzzer is another nwo pawn. He saw an opportunity to play a hide and seek game with the public as a “Constitutionalist” and outsider.

              That is how it is done…with smoke and mirrors, and dog and pony shows.

              Granny always said to never trust a man without any lips, or a politician. Guess granny got a double whammy, with cruzzer.

              • American Trump Destroyed Canadian Cuban Cruz in NY. Trump 61% to Cruz 15%. Hello RNC, TRUMP is Our Guy!!


          • Freeslave is a Moron. Planned Parenthood’s #1 Enemy? Really??? How is it that helping women avoid pregnancies and unwanted Crack babies, be the enemy?? You must be another misinformed Freaky Bible Thumper..

            LYING TED Cruz is a Shill for the Banks and establishment and will be happy to throw America under the Bus so his banking buddies profit off of WW3. Religion is the number #1 Reason and cause for death and murder in the world.

            Religious Evangelicals have no problem carpet bombing entire civilizations, but pull a 1 inch fetus out of a crack addict and they call it murder. We call you all HYPOCRITES~~~ THE TRUTH SUCKS FOR YOU.


        • Wealth is created in a few basic ways:

          1.) Dig it out of the ground (oil, coal, gold, silver, diamonds, etc. etc.)

          2.) Grow it out of the ground or harvest it from the waters.

          3.) Convert raw materials to ‘finished’ products (or parts, subsystems thereof) through the application of intelligence, technology, labor, and energy

          4.) Lately (in the last generation or so) the creation and management of information. Some people debate that this is really creating wealth, but I list it for completeness sake.

          Our government is hard against #1, international mega-corporations have control of #2, and #3 has been globalized out of the US for most things.

          The last one, #4, is still open to small business using tools (hardware and software) mostly controlled by mega-corps. Some argue that #4 is just part of the service economy and doesn’t really produce anything tangible.

          The financial manipulations that carry on as banking and investing just look from the ground to be a wealth transfer scheme and really don’t produce anything.

          I suppose that real venture capital investing still exists, but that doesn’t seem to be where the most action is.

          An economy or country cannot go on indefinitely without producing real wealth using the basic 3 or 4 methods.


      2. The Elephant Cometh

        ht tp://

        “so many operations and institutions of daily life in America have insidiously become rackets, meaning that they are kept going only by dishonest means. If we didn’t lie to ourselves about them, they couldn’t continue.”

        our entire system and every institution functions as criminal enterprise now

        Kunstler,Charles Hugh Smith and others have continued to warn us
        but the bell has already rung I fear

      3. When you have one coin with two sides this is what you get. I’m so tired of the B.S. from the Reps, and Demos I could Vomit!

        When we tell them no on something then we tell the HELL NO on something and they do it any way. It is time to have recall on all of these turds that don’t do what we want.

        We all Lose? Yes we will lose the fight, but when it comes to Push comes to Shove we will win the battle.

        It is a shame that our country is going to fall apart and there will be war on our streets, but I pray that when the smoke clears we have our Republic back.


        • Sgt Dale,
          AMEN to that! your spot on!

        • We WILL get our Republic back! For decades, nothing has ever really changed no matter which political party is in power, and that is exactly how the ‘elite’ like it. The two major political parties have got all their heads up their collective butts and they are leading this nation right down the toilet. That puts We The People right square in the middle of “nothing left to lose” which makes us ready to fight once more for our nation. We’re about to get the water to clear up by getting the turds out of the creek. Things are not falling apart, they are falling into place!

      4. I’m not even going to bother voting anymore. I could spend that time fishing. TPTB are going to anoint their choice. I believe it will be Hillary this time. I’m old. I have health problems. I am cannon fodder. I will take as many of them with me as I can when the time comes and that time is soon.

      5. Some dude billionaire named Simpson who is a New York Zionist, gave Cruze eleven million dollars. That should buy some pretty hefty legislation, or one hell of a blo job. But me thinks it will just get us suckers, plucked again!

        • You talking about the constitutional conservative who wins the voteless elections.It’s called controlled opposition

      6. Good article. All I can say is it’s a coming and we are going to have quite the show to watch. When we neglect our morals and values this is the country we end up with.

      7. The Founders gave us the second amendment for a reason. Its is our right, our duty to offset such sh…ty governments and to put new safeguards in place to cover our asses for the future. I just survived another HAARP weather weapons attack in Houston. When the power went out and i noticed that the next day, the condo complex emailed us, since it hit my phone, to get ready to comply and cooperate with fema, and the military. I simply followed my own protocol, and got my 590A1 ready. Coupled with the fact that my new neighbour is North Texas red neck. Big plus here. If the sh…t hits the fan, told my lady to feed the phucker before i get home.

        Luckily the request was recinded and i removed the mag. I also recomended to the maintenace guy to make sure that he opens the gate and keep it that way. I would hate to have to bust up the piece of crap with lots of steal penetrator, Brenneke rounds. Meanwhile, people got trapped in cars, drowned, and commited suicide out of stupidity. My car flooded out on the inside again in the trunk area from water getting in.

        Genius right again, and is shtf fortified. I highly recomend that you guys seal up you stuff, because if your bug out bag gets submerged, your phucked.

        Then of course Genuis’s idea.. Well, i have no water damage to any of my stuff. And its completely submerged, and shtf proof. They think that by flooding out the city makes Governor Abbot desperate for federal assistance, to make him owe the feds millions at tax payers expense. Nice try, but we are mot stupid people here. And the feds will need all the income they can get from Houston, by flooding out our cities and declaring Harris county a flood disaster area which now forces all citizens, homeowners and business owners to be forced to by flood insurance that is regulated by Fema. You cabalist think that your dealing with a bunch of stupid mental retards. If you want to see retards, go down to fourth ward and any subsidized apartment complex, you will see them there.


        Torential rainfall my ass. Any dumbass can tell that this was 1,000% HAARP and weather warefare. The sun was shinning, then within 1 1/2 hrs, 30 inches of rain falls and floods out the entire North Cypress area, where most of the whites and read Neck populations live. Gee what a coinsidence.

        • They really sent you an email telling you to cooperate ? …dang brazen of them for sure ..

      8. Anyone reading this story that believes that this country might change because of the up coming election is NUTS!! All that will happen is we will get a new group in power that will be no different from the last. They will line their pockets with the tax dollars from the makers, while also giving our tax dollars to the takers to keep them happy. You see The problem is, the left has their hands on the levers of power in this country, and they will never willingly release that power. The only way power will be taken back by the people, will be with guns. I hate to say it, but Mao was right, power does comes from the barrel of a gun. Now for those of you who think that our military would join with the people in this fight just might want to look at our own history. In 1932 our own government used the U.S. Army to attach WW1 vets and their family’s using 6 battle tanks, tear gas,and fixed bayonets. The 25000 honorably discharged vets were in Washington D.C. protesting because they were owed bonus pay for service in WW1.

        • yea but leadership would help or we all do something unwittingly stupid. does anyone know what has happened to all the generals and colonels that were “let go” by this administration for lack of leader love?

      9. There isn’t and hasn’t been any viable political or ballot box solution. Ive voted for the lesser evil for decades. Not any longer Im gonna vote for the greater evil. Hillary will get my vote. If its gonna happen lets get it going. Im getting old. Im as ready now as I will ever be. Its time to pop the boil on the buttocks of the USA.

      10. I enjoyed all the comments here except for the Cruz as president suggestion joke.

      11. The thing that thoroughly disgusts me about Trump is his main message of how he is going to make the American military great again. Give me an F’en break. Another obvious warmonger kissing up to the military industrial complex who runs the whole show. The main cause of the destruction of America is the warmongers, an enemy of all Americans. Trillions wasted year after year while our constitutional rights are eviscerated. All these candidates suck and are controlled by murderers.

      12. The keyboard cowards feverishly peck, peck, peck away as they slide further into the abyss of the most vile evil disgusting criminal psychopath controlled totalitarian fascist Police State hell on earth the world has ever known, and they could give two shits what kind of future they leave for their children.

      13. What election.? Its just a reality show to keep the masses under the ‘illusion’ they have some kind of freedom to choose. Choose what I say.? If you really think that any of the clowns they have “selected” are going to save this Republic, then I have ocean front property to sell you in death valley.? It’s over. It’s been over for a long time. The American Bolshevik revolution is nearly complete. All that awaits now is economic collapse, complete centralized totalitarian control, and a new age of tyranny and oppression. Those with the intelligence and resources to get out, are doing so. The rest of us are screwed.!!! Period.

        • And go where?
          Why can’t we organize?
          Time for the next Revolution.

      14. I disagree with the analysis that nobody can fix the problems we have. If we just say screw it I’m going fishing or I’m hiding in my hole somewhere it is guaranteed it won’t be fixed. We can fix the problems if we try…..but….if we don’t try and give up it’s guaranteed the Hillarys of the world have free rein to screw us over. Trump might not be the answer but he is the best chance we have to stop the trainwreck.

      15. Let me see if I have this right. The attacks on 9/11 were serious enough to invade 2 countries that didn’t attack us (Iraq and Afghanistan), but 9/11 isn’t serious enough to let the victims sue the country that did attack us, Saudi Arabia.

      16. Every angst-ridden article on the futility of voting is a vote for Hillary.
