Bilderberg 101

The real power behind the New World order lies with the Bilderberg group.  A consortium of political, media industry and financial elite from around the world, the Bilderberg group meets annually to make decisions that affect us all.  This is not a conspiracy theory.  It is a fact that this group exists, and it is also a fact that they are having their annual conference in Chantilly, Va., right now, May 31-June 3, 2012.

The true origins of the group go back further than most people realize.  James P. Tucker, author of The Bilderberg Diary and pre-eminent expert on the group, has dedicated more than 25 years of his life to researching and exposing the group.  According to Tucker:

The roots of Bilderberg go back centuries, when international moneychangers would secretly manipulate the economy to enrich themselves and enslave ordinary people. 
The Rothschilds of Britain and Europe have met secretly with other financiers for centuries, as did the Rockefellers of America. 
In the beginning, the Rothschilds were "Red Shields" because of the ornament on their door and the Rockefellers of Germany were "Rye Fields" because of their crops.

One of the most significant pre-Bilderberg meetings took place in Jekyll Island, Georgia in 1908, when Nelson Aldrich (whose family later married into the Rockefeller family) Henry Davidson, of J.P. Morgan and Co.; Frank Vanderlip, of the National City Bank; Paul Warburg, of Kuhn Loeb and Co., and A. Piatt Andrew, assistant secretary of the treasury got together and hatched idea of pressuring Congress into creating the Federal Reserve.

By1954, the global elite decided a regular annual meeting was necessary.  The first of these meetings was held at the Bilderberg Hotel in the Netherlands. The stated goal at the time was to promote better cultural understanding between the United States and Western Europe

The annual conference is said to be the only Bilderberg event held.  It is by invitation only and is generally less than 150 people.  Most of the attendees are wealthy white males.  Only a few women have attended.  Some of the most notable: Hillary Clinton attended in 2008, Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands has been a frequent attendee since 1998, and Queen Sofia of Spain was present from 2008-2010.  Margaret Thatcher attended once, in 1975, didn’t like it, and was summarily removed from her office as the Prime Minister of Britain.  She later told a reporter, that it was "a tribute to be denounced by them".  

Click HERE for a more complete accounting of the conference participants in the past and HERE for the roster of people currently attending the conference in Chantilly, Virginia.  

Edited to add:  Those whose names appear on these lists, especially more than once, are ENEMIES of freedom and FRIENDS of the New World Order.  It is important that they be recognized as “the bad guys”.  Their word cannot be trusted. Their intentions, no matter how noble they appear, are geared towards ushering in the NWO.  Expect to be manipulated and you will be immune to manipulation.

Intense security surrounds the conferences.  Entire hotels are closed to any guests not on the Bilderberg roster.  There has never been an official record or transcript of the meetings released to the public, and all attendees are completely sworn to secrecy.  The mainstream media, as with all things juicy, controversial, and actually meaningful, has completely blacked out coverage of the events.

When the CEOs and owners of the major media outlets are invited to the party, of course, it makes it much easier to squash any story that tries to sneak out into the public eye.  David Rockefeller thanked the press for their circumspection after the 1991 conference in Baden-Baden, Germany“We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government." You really can’t announce your intentions for a New World Order much more blatantly than that.

Doesn’t all this secrecy make you wonder what the wealthiest, most powerful 150 or so comrades are discussing in those conferences?  These people have the power and money to make decisions that affect every person on the planet.  This cartel of the “elite” is full of public eugenicists and depopulation proponents, like Bill Gates, David Rockefeller and Henry Kissinger. They are “king-makers, hand-choosing presidents and prime ministers, in order to fulfill their secret plans. In 2008, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama attended the conference.  Days later, Clinton dropped out of the race for the presidency, Obama was elected, and Clinton subsequently became his Secretary of State.

George H.W. Bush attended in 1985. He became president in 1988. Bill Clinton attended in 1991. He became president a year later. Tony Blair attended in 1993. He became prime minister of England in 1997. Romano Prodi attended in 1999. Later that year he became president of the European Union Commission. In 2004, Sen. John Edwards spoke to the group. He was later anointed the Democratic vice presidential nominee by presidential candidate John Kerry.

Also well-represented are the thirteen old aristocratic families of the Illuminati.  These families are called "bloodlines" in the NWO arena.  They include the Astor, the Bundy Bloodline, the Collins Bloodline, the DuPont Bloodline,  the Freeman Bloodline, the Kennedy Bloodline,  the Li Bloodline,  the Onassis Bloodline, the Reynolds Bloodline, the Rockefeller Bloodline, the Rothschild Bloodline, the Russell Bloodline and the Van Duyn Bloodline Their purpose is to gain control of the economy, the religion and the governments of the world, allowing one group of "elites" to be in charge of the world's decision making, thus making those decisions benefit said group of "elites". For a look at the incestuous web of banking, politics, media and religion click on the names above.

Two “spin-off” groups with close ties to the Bilderbergers are the Trilateral Commission, a “discussion group” founded by David Rockefeller, and the Council on Foreign Relations, a foreign policy think tank and publishing company, geared to end national sovereignty. Nearly every US president has been a member of the CFR, as has nearly every Secretary of State.


Even more important than “who” the members are is what the goals of the Bilderbergers are.  According to an article by Steven Lendman:

The Group's grand design is for "a One World Government (World Company) with a single, global marketplace, policed by one world army, and financially regulated by one 'World (Central) Bank' using one global currency." Their "wish list" includes: 
-- "one international identify (observing) one set of universal values;"
-- centralized control of world populations by "mind control;" in other words, controlling world public opinion;
-- a New World Order with no middle class, only "rulers and servants (serfs)," and, of course, no democracy;
-- "a zero-growth society" without prosperity or progress, only greater wealth and power for the rulers;
-- manufactured crises and perpetual wars;
-- absolute control of education to program the public mind and train those chosen for various roles;
-- "centralized control of all foreign and domestic policies;" one size fits all globally;
-- using the UN as a de facto world government imposing a UN tax on "world citizens;"
-- expanding NAFTA and WTO globally;
-- making NATO a world military;
-- imposing a universal legal system
-- a global "welfare state where obedient slaves will be rewarded and non-conformists targeted for extermination."

So, basically, 150 people want to take over the world.  They want to reduce the population by killing a huge percentage of us, and exercise iron control over the remaining “servant class.” (Hint: that’s you and me, assuming we survive the killing-off phase.) They intend to have one huge military to enforce their will, one huge treasury to handle all of their riches and one huge government to tax the peasants, feed the peasants and train the peasants.

Shamelessly, David Rockefeller, (again) a prominent Bilderberger and Illuminati family member, wrote about the Bilderberg Group in his memoirs.
Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as ‘internationalists’ and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure – one world, if you will. If that’s the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.
The Bilderberg Group is said to have been responsible for the creation of the Euro.  They promoted the European Union and are now working on their goal of  North American Union between Mexico, the US, and Canada.  The Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP) between the US and Canada was contrived at a 2005 Bilderberg meeting. Lenden called the agreement “another step toward global integration… (that) won't stop until the entire world is unified under the auspices and the political umbrella of a One World Company, a nightmarish borderless world run by the world's most powerful clique.” (The SPP has now morphed into the North American Perimeter Security Agreement.)

Whatever the plans are for this year’s shindig, you can bet that Bilderbergers won’t be trying to figure out ways to help their fellow man.  When the working class suffers, the elite class prospers.  When regular people are economically devastated, they are easier to control.  When huge segments of the population die or are sterilized, there are more resources available to the elite.  Conjectures as to the 2012 agenda include a planned pandemic, the presidential election, the Greek collapse and its effect on the Euro, and the world economic crisis.  If those subjects aren’t enough to keep you up at night, I’ll leave you with yet another quote from Rockefeller.

"We are on the verge of a global transformation. All we need is the right major crisis and the nations will accept the New World Order."

The UN: The Wrong Side of the Revolution

The United Nations is a tool for the New World Order takeover.  Agencies and committees are being created faster than ever before in an effort to bring the entire world under the control of just an elite few.

The thing that is so insidious about the UN is that they cloak their motives in an air of benevolence.  They garner the whole-hearted support of the unaware by their word choices, their propaganda, and their warm politically correct facade. The people of the world are being willingly, happily led off a cliff, while being lulled by the UN Scheherazade. 

One would think that a freedom-loving country like the United States of America would strenuously object to being controlled by foreign interests, but one cannot underestimate the power of propaganda, the false green movement and Barack Obama.  Obama, our very own NWO poster child and lackey, is putting the United States into the hands of the UN and out of the hands of Americans.

Control is being handed over to the UN on every level, from every country. We are watching the takeover of the world, live and in Technicolor.

Military Control:  Months ago, Obama’s henchman Secretary of Defense, Leon Panetta, stated that the UN’s approval  would be sought regarding declarations of war, as opposed to the approval of Congress.  This puts the well-trained US military in the hands of the demagogues of the UN “peacekeepers”.

Environmental Control:  This June, the UN has announced intentions to create a global environmental agency, rife with crippling economic sanctions against any country that does not toe the Agenda 21 line.  Countries will be “assessed” and mandatory financial contributions will be required, contributions that will go into a global coffer.  Cloaked in a false green benevolence, the agency will attempt to police every country in the world and reallocate its resources for the “global good”.

Population Control:  According to an article on Infowars, the UN, in conjunction with the World Bank, is forcing countries to implement population control guidelines in order to be able to receive World Bank assistance.  Without access to World Bank lending, it is virtually impossible for the countries to compete in an international market

Internet Control:  Obama and the Congress have already stated their intentions to allow the UN to police the world’s internet.  To get people behind the idea, they are referring to internet access as a basic human right; however, once the controls are in place, we can expect to be inundated with a barrage of regulations.  Already in the works is the International Code of Conduct for Internet Security, a mandate that states broadly (in typical open-to-interpretation style) that the intended purpose is “principles of maintaining information and network security which cover the political, military, economic, social, cultural, technical and other aspects.” 

Financial Control:  Never doubt that the world’s economic issues are not by design.  A starving, desperate populace is a controllable populace.  For years, pundits have been scoffed at for stating that the current economic depression was by UN design.  However, as country after country collapses, businesses are carbon-taxed out of existence only to have them spring back up with different, global ownership, and currencies fail, we have to look at the agenda causing this to happen.  The long-term goal is one leadership, which will swoop in and bail out these countries, feeding the hungry, housing them in Agenda-21 approved locations and using them to pillage the natural resources of that country to benefit the elite.  The goal, as decided in 2009 by the Bilderberg group, a global elite “think tank”, is a global treasury to manage the world’s economy.

Religious Control:  The UN purportedly supports religious freedom, but as usual, is bullying those who do not agree with their version of morality by holding economic sanctions over that country’s head.  The UN threatened to withdraw aid from countries that did not allow abortion for religious reasons.  Furthermore, religious symbols, particularly Christian symbols, have drawn UN fire for being “intolerant”.  While the UN supports global blasphemy laws that protect Islam from criticism, they support efforts to have crosses removed from the exterior of historic buildings in Italy because the sight of the crosses could “incite violence.” The UK has jumped on the anti-cross bandwagon recently, as the courts have upheld a ban on the right to wear a cross or crucifix to work. The assault on Christianity continues with the Union of European Football Association banning the cross at all venues and events.

Health Control:  Through Codex Alimentarius, the United Nations is attempting to control the health of the world.  By forcing GMO foods, removing our options for taking vitamins and using natural remedies, and requiring “food modernization”, the UN is removing the right for basic health freedom.  The only ones to benefit from this modernization are Big Pharma and Big Agri, as the population gets weaker and sicker from the non-nutritious irradiated science projects they are forced to consume.

We are rapidly devolving into a world devoid of national sovereignty. Obama, the first “UN President of the United States” is leading us right into global enslavement, into a world where we have no elected officials for representation, where we have no right to protest, and where we have lost our God-given freedoms.  Every day, the world is slipping more deeply into the hands of the United Nations and the New World Order, leaving no aspect of our lives untouched. 

In the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, 

“It seems as if we are on the wrong side of a world revolution.”

Debunking Drake

If something seems too good to be true, it probably is.

For example, what if someone told you:

“Drake” is the name used by an insider to the plan to arrest many thousands of bad guys in the United States who are responsible for numerous crimes against the general public. This man “Drake” was asked by the Pentagon to inform people about what to expect when these mass arrests are broadcast.

Drake was given a large stack of papers detailing a plan for all this back in 1979. He said he did not read all of it, but he did read some of it, and this is the basis for the plan of arresting all the high-level crooks. Much work has been done through the years to get this done in a lawful and peaceful manner, with research that Drake did on the origins of law going back many thousands of years.

The bottom line is, the good guys have paperwork that gives the military civilian authority to contact Federal Marshals, who in turn contact local law enforcement, who actually make the arrests. The important thing to know is that this is NOT about military action, or a military coup, or martial law. There may be a stand of troops to back up the law enforcement actions, and the Federal Marshals will be with them. The military will be there only to give assistance as needed.

David Wilcock and Drake will be notified of arrests a day or so ahead, so it can be put on the Internet and go viral. David Wilcock says there are “an astonishing number of deeply-imbedded moles, who are so much closer to these people {arrestees} than anybody thought they could get.”
                                                                        Source: Fourwinds10

This is a synopsis of the “Drake Interview” that is a huge topic of conversation on Patriot websites and forums.  Basically, it sounds like we all have nothing to worry about; the guys in white hats are about to ride in and take care of everything.  Apparently, we can all relax and go back to American Idol now.

Drake refers frequently to the website Freedom Reigns.  The site treats Drake as a fountain of information, has “Drake FAQs” page that gets right down to the nitty gritty of how he takes his coffee and what he thinks of the Pope, and has a page of “Alerts” to keep America informed of the actions that are going to be taken against the Elite any day now.

Personally, I’m not switching on Dancing with the Stars just yet.

I just don’t believe this.

First of all, if these plans were truly in the works, why on earth would the Pentagon tap this anonymous fellow, “Drake”, to spread the word via an internet interview with David Wilcock?  Would that really be the media of choice for the Department of Defense, who could simply take over the networks with the flip of a switch?

Secondly, why would this advance warning be given?  The Elite, with their unlimited funds, would be able to hop on their private jets and vanish if there was any basis to these rumors.  If such an action were being taken, wouldn’t it be above top secret until the second it happened?

Finally, if this has been in the works since 1979, why did it take over 30 years for the paperwork and arrest warrants to be put together?  Why were the banksters and politicos allowed to run America into the ground for all that time if their guilt was proven?

This is nothing but a psyops operation, something defined by the US Department of Defense as "the planned use of propaganda and other psychological actions having the primary purpose of influencing the opinions, emotions, attitudes, and behavior of hostile foreign groups in such a way as to support the achievement of national objectives."

This is a method to assuage the Patriots, many of whom are chomping at the bit to deal with those who have nearly destroyed our country.  The PTB do not want a revolution – revolutions are messy, chaotic and bloody affairs, and they are too narcissistically proud of their precious skins to risk a revolt if it can be prevented at all.  If enough Patriot activists are sitting by, waiting for these mass arrests, this simply gives the Elite a little more time to put their plans into effect.

On the Alerts page of Freedom Reigns, instructions are given.  Read these excerpts with a cynical eye.

…..Media may say its martial law and try to spread panic, but the actions are lawful and benefit humanity….
….International travel will be stopped for 3 days….
….Remain calm. Support the troops and law officers that are arresting thousands of criminals guilty of heinous crimes against us all….….Research stories on the internet to assure yourself that the arresters are good and the arrestees are bad….
This is an attempt to program us not to resist as martial law is instated.  This is an effort to convince Patriots to go along with the enemy like sheep to the slaughter.  Believe this and you will end up in a FEMA camp, convinced it’s for your own safety whilst the “bad guys” are being rounded up.

Joel Skousen, prominent political scientist and well-respected commentator in the Patriot movement, puts it bluntly on Liberty Round Table.  “All of this is so patently ridiculous that I’m embarrassed for the movement and those good people who are taken in by it. But, perhaps that’s part of the purpose—to drive thinking people away and discredit the ones who understand how the true conspiracy operates.”

Hear more from Skousen on this Infowars interview with Alex Jones.

As we get closer to the vital breaking point in the Resistance, we will be flooded with more and more disinformation.  Verify the sources of what you hear.  Consider the credibility and the agendas of those sources.  Don’t fall victim to a hoax, no matter how elaborate or widely spread.  If it sounds like liberty is going to return via the proper channels, while we stand patiently by on the sidelines, you can be assured that it is NOT TRUE. 

Freedom isn’t free.

Scytl: Obama's Spanish Ace in the Hole


Oh – what am I doing?  I’m just practicing counting votes for the 2012 presidential election, possibly the most vital election in American history.

Why am I doing it in Spanish?  Because, silly reader, American votes are tallied in Spain.  Duh.

Get ready for more election fraud.  Over 900 jurisdictions are relying on Scytl, according to its own website, “the worldwide leader in electronic voting and electoral modernization”.  Scytl is based in Barcelona, Spain and the board of directors is made up of….you guessed it, investment bankers.  As if the globalist bankers haven’t done enough damage to the US, they will now be in charge of the majority of the election.

Scytl voting is strictly internet based.  There is absolutely NO paper trail.  This leaves no room for transparency in the vote-counting process and it also leaves the election results vulnerable to hackers.  Bev Harris of Black Box Voting confirms, “With SCYTL internet voting, there will be no ballots. No physical evidence. No chain of custody. No way for the public to authenticate who actually cast the votes, chain of custody, or the count.

The software can definitely be hacked as was proven in 2010.  A team of University of Michigan students hacked into the system within 36 hours.  They targeted voting in Washington, DC, appropriately, and with showy, “Anonymous-style” flair, they made a joke of the entire system.  Fox News reported, “They changed votes, "elected" a Star Wars robot chairman of the City Council, and installed the school’s fight song, “Hail to the Victors,” which would play 15 seconds after someone voted.”

In 2008, the Florida Department of State considered using the Scytl system but rejected it.  

Our findings identified vulnerabilities that, in the worst case, could result in (i) voters being unable to cast votes, (ii) an election result that does not accurately reflect the will of the voters, or (iii) disclosure of confidential information, such as the votes cast by a voter. The extent to which these vulnerabilities could actually be exploited in the ODBP is beyond the scope of this report given our lack of system context. Secure handling and audit of the Voter Choice Records may defend against some or all of these vulnerabilities, but these procedures were not available for review.We identify three findings of particular significance: 
  • The use of supervised polling stations provides significantly better protection against voter coercion or vote-
  • selling than is present in some other absentee voting systems, such as voting by mail.
  • Two copies of each vote are stored: one electronically, and another on paper as a Voter Choice Record. This provides redundancy that is not present in existing vote-by-mail systems. If the electronic votes are well-protected, then they can enable audit of the paper records in ways that are not currently possible.
  • After casting their ballot, each voter is given a receipt that is intended to give voters confidence that their votes were “Counted as Cast”. These receipts do not achieve their stated goal of allowing voters to “independently verify that their ballots have been correctly accounted for.” These receipts might indicate that a vote was received and decrypted by the county (a property not typically provided by current postal voting systems), but they do not provide assurance that the voter’s vote was correctly recorded.

Apparently these red flags were not enough to concern the
US de facto government (or perhaps they were just added benefits?).  Scytl is the system used for absentee voting for all members of our military stationed overseas.

Michael Savage, a conservative talk show host, has blatantly stated his belief that this is a global maneuver to keep Obama in office. “It is very likely that this is the final step in Barack Obama’s corruption of the voting process.  It has the promise of enabling him and his cohorts to control the outcomes of federal elections with no accountability.  On top of that it’s one more step toward a global government.”

Indeed, the CEO of Scytl, Pere Valles, quite interestingly, spent several years working in…..Chicago as CEO of KPMG.  In fact, Valles, who is not an American citizen, is said to have donated the maximum allowable amount to Obama’s presidential campaign.  Of course, like nearly everything else in Obamaland, the donor list has been scrubbed and sanitized for public consumption. (5340 donors’ names were deleted from his contribution list).  It’s interesting to note that although Valles does not appear on the list of donors; over 120 other donors were employed by Valles at KPMG.
The primary investors in Scytl are Balderton Capital (with ties to JP Morgan), Nauta Capital, and Spinnaker SCR.  Balderton, in particular, through parent company Benchmark Capital, also donated heavily to the Obama campaign.  You can find more information here about the financial connections between Obama, the globalist bankers and Scytl.

So to summarize:

·        900 jurisdictions within the US will have their votes counted remotely in Spain.
·        There will be no paper trail of physical evidence of those votes.
·        The system has been hacked by a group of college students.
·        The major stockholders of the company are globalist bankers.
·        Scytl has distinct financial ties to the previous Obama campaign.

As our friendly neighbourhood communist, Joseph Stalin, said:

The people who cast the votes decide nothing.
The people who count the votes decide everything.

Thank you to Rowdy for the awesome resources!

Let the Cover-Up Begin.....

The Obama administration must be saying to themselves, “Well, this is certainly inconvenient.”

The question is, what are they going to do to distract the public from this revelation? What false flag nightmare will they create to rally the public behind the de facto imposter who has illegally held the highest office in the United States since 2009? Who is going to be assassinated in this new cover-up?

The controversy surrounding Obama’s eligibility to be the President of the United States just got a whole lot bigger with’s release of a photo of his bio in a booklet put out in 1991.  The biography states:

“Barack Obama, the first African-American president of the Harvard Law Review, was born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii.  The son of an American anthropologist and a Kenyan finance minister, he attended Columbia University and worked as a financial journalist and editor for Business International Corporation.

The literary agency that published the booklet in question has recanted, calling it a “nothing more than a fact-checking error.”   Do you really think that “mistake” would have been allowed to stand for this long? Do you think that a narcissist like Barack Obama didn’t glory in reading his own little bio in that publication? This is not a mistake. The mistake is believing anything shared in the monumental cover-up that is about to ensue.

Miriam Goderich, the literary agent who claimed responsibility for the mistake, might want to take an extended vacation, have some extensive plastic surgery and change her name unless she wants to end up like Breitbart’s coroner, Dr. Michael Cormier, the last person who publicly covered up an alleged Obama administration crime.

The public can expect their attention to be misdirected by a strategically timed disaster or false flag terrorist event.  Since it’s an election year, we are due for a distraction of epic proportions. 

Last month, an astute friend commented, “The eyes of the world are going to be on Chicago in May.”  At that point we were discussing the possibility of a false flag event to speed up the martial law takeover that seems to be in the works.  Now such an event seems even more likely - the NATO Summit would be a prime setting for the ultimate distraction.  Residents of certain parts of Chicago had already been urged to be elsewhere during the summit. The Red Cross in nearby Wisconsin was asked to put shelters on stand-by because the summit “may create unrest or another national security incident. “  A Wisconsin Red Cross spokesperson stated that the evacuation plan was not theirs alone.  ““Our direction has come from the City of Chicago and the Secret Service.”

Clearly something was already in the works.  We can expect that “something” to be cranked up to an event so shocking no one will give a second thought to the illicit origins of Barry Barack Hussein Soetero Obama.

Question everything from here on out.  When you read something refuting the report on Obama’s heritage, ask yourself these pertinent questions about the source:

·        How much did he/she get paid to make this statement?
·        What could be in this person’s own background that could make him/her vulnerable to blackmail?
·        Is this person also owned by AIPAC?
·        Does this person have an agenda that is benefited by Obama remaining in office for another four years?
·        What is the continued life expectancy for this person after his/her statement has been milked for all it’s value?

Mac Slavo, editor of SHTFplan believes that answers are in order. “The American people have been subjected to a massive expansion of the police and welfare state under his reign. At the very least we should know with 100% certainty whether the man signing the legislation and Executive Orders is, in fact, an American by birth.”

Earnestly endeavor to recognize the truth, and to share that truth.  Demand that your members of Congress investigate the legitimacy of the President, and upon their findings, consider void every illegally signed executive order and legislation that has been put into place during Obama’s years in office. Flood the media outlets and politician’s websites with emails insisting upon the truth.

The United States de facto government, headed by an imposter and an illegal president, is on the verge of declaring martial law and finally ridding itself of that pesky Constitution that we hold so dear.  Don’t allow yourself to be distracted by spectacular events or deluded by sleight-of-hand.  It’s time to resist through truth, transparency and a return to integrity.

"The Matrix is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth."

Thanks to the folks at SHTFplan for the thought-provoking discussion, especially NinaO and Yental!

Canada Regulates Yard Sales & Hand-Me-Downs

With the economy in the toilet and the outlook even further down into the sewer system, yard sales are popping up more than ever.  Not only can the seller make a few bucks, the buyers can hit the mother lode and acquire needed items at a tiny percentage of the price.  It’s win-win, right?

Not to the federal government of Canada.  If money is changing hands outside the system, the government is certain to want to put a stop to it.  What better way to halt trade that doesn’t benefit them than to regulate it?  

In a news release dated May 15, 2012, Health Canada (the federal department responsible for public health) cautions against buying or selling goods at a garage sales.  In fact, the regulations affect not only the sale of second-hand goods, but the donation of them.

The legal basis of this is a legislation passed last June.  “On June 20, 2011, the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act (CCPSA) came into force. Its purpose is to protect the public by addressing and preventing dangers to human health or safety that are posed by consumer products in Canada. There is no distinction under the CCPSA and its regulations between new and used products. Any person who sells, distributes, or gives away consumer products that do not comply with the Act or its current regulations is breaking the law in Canada.”

This makes it illegal to pass on hand-me-downs, sell items on Craigslist, hold yard sales or garage sales, or donate these items to others in need.  As with all governmental documents, the wording is so vague that it is completely open to interpretation.  The published rhetoric focuses on items designed for infants and children but cautions, “Buyers and sellers are urged to exercise caution regarding all consumer products.”

One notable example of a “hazardous product” is loose fitting cotton sleepwear.  “Cotton or cotton-blends may only be used for tight-fitting styles such as sleepers or polo pajamas.”

Other odd caveats:

·        Plush animals that have detachable eyes or noses
·        Costume jewelry (could contain lead or cadmium)
·        Baby gates without instructions and original packaging
·        Cosmetics unless they comply with the Food and Drugs Act
·        MP3 players that could pose the risk of electric shock
·        Window blinds or curtains

For eagle-eyed yard-sale attendees or hand-me-down beneficiaries, an easy-to-use tattle-tale form is available on the Health Canada website.  With unparalleled convenience, the online form is automatically submitted to instigate an investigation of the questionable item.

This is another example of a government condescending to “care for” its citizens as though they are unable to exercise common sense when buying or selling goods.  The wildly intrusive law is just another method of control over the way people make money and the way people spend it. 

Other recent incidents of ridiculous regulations:

Three little girls in Georgia were busted by the police chief for having a lemonade stand in their front yard.  According to the Chief of Police, health was of great concern.  “"We were not aware of how the lemonade was made, who made the lemonade, of what the lemonade was made with, so we acted accordingly by city ordinance.”

A group of moms in Minnesota were threatened with criminal charges for distributing some farm fresh surplus to needy local families.

A Michigan woman was threatened with jail time for raising an organic garden in her front yard. 

Two Delaware neighbourhoods had all of their basketball nets and poles removed by the Department of Transportation and the state police.

The intrusion into normal everyday activities, the excessive regulations, and the threats of criminal and civil liability are all tyrannical actions by governments that are attempting to implement total control.
