Capitol Police Surrender Hill to Children With Sleds

A Capitol Hill sledding ban didn’t stop families from having wintery fun.

The US Capitol Police turned down Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton’s last-ditch request yesterday for a temporary lift of the ban on sledding down the West Front of the Capitol. But, it turns out, little kids don’t care what the lawman says.

Several dozen children and their parents ascended to the top of the hill Thursday for an afternoon of protest sledding. With them were several dozen reporters, clearly looking for a piece of the only story that combines snow, winter sports, and protesting Congress’s Scrooge-like dominance of Washington.

“My mom was [scared],” of being chased off or arrested by Capitol Police, one 7-year-old said after her toboggan finished one of the day’s first illegal rides. “I don’t care.”

While some of ther sledders’ parents were greeted by a Capitol groundskeeper and officers distributing fliers printed with the no-sledding rule, officials did not really bother any of the sledders.

“My daughter is 9 and loves to sled,” said Jason Petty, a Capitol Hill resident who added that he did not believe the Capitol Police’s occasional invocation of the sledding ban as a matter of national security. “I don’t buy it. Some people want to stay inside; let them stay inside.”

On Monday, January 26, a landmark ruling was made in a Federal Court on the COMER vs. Bank of Canada lawsuit. The Federal Court of Appeal upheld a lower court’s decision that this lawsuit can proceed. Where it will go from here only time will tell but either way let’s hope that a central bank monopoly doesn’t end up just putting us right back into the clutches of the Rothschilds.

Canadians Sued The Bank Of Canada & Won. Mainstream Media & Government Blacks Out Story — video included

by Joe Martino
Collective-Evolution
Feb 5, 2015

Recently, constitutional lawyer Rocco Galati won yet another round of appeals set forth by the Bank of Canada in a case involving two Canadians who filed an action in federal court to restore The Bank of Canada to its original purpose and operations. This is a very significant story but you probably haven’t heard of it. Why? The mainstream media and government have blacked out the story for reasons that appear to stem from fear of how the public will react to realizing they’ve been systematically enslaved for decades.

Significant Legal Action

The initial federal court filing took place on December 12th, 2011 by  Canadian constitutional lawyer, Rocco Galati, on behalf of Canadians William Krehm, Ann Emmett, and COMER (Committee for Monetary and Economic Reform). The filing is intended to “restore the use of the Bank of Canada to its original purpose, by exercising its public statutory duty and responsibility. That purpose includes making interest free loans to the municipal/provincial/federal governments for “human capital” expenditures (education health, other social services) and / or infrastructure expenditures.”

According to WestCoastNativeNews: (Note: Website may temporarily be down)

The Plaintiffs state that since 1974 there has been a gradual but sure slide into the reality that the Bank of Canada and Canada’s monetary and financial policy are dictated by private foreign banks and financial interests contrary to the Bank of Canada Act.

The plaintiffs state that the defendants (officials) are unwittingly and/or wittingly, in varying degrees, knowledge and intent engaged in a conspiracy, along with the Bank of International Settlements (BIS), Financial Stability Forum (FSF), International Monetary Fund (IMF) to render impotent the Bank of Canada Act as well as Canadian sovereignty over financial, monetary, and socio-economic policy, and bypass the sovereign rule of Canada through its parliament by means of the banking and financial systems. http://www.pacificfreepress.com/news/1/10573-confronting-global-finance-in-canadas-courts.html

The truth is, The Bank of Canada used to issue debt free loans to the government, which meant that the nation would go into debt to private banking institutions. When that changed, private bankers/corporations essentially gained control and ownership of the country.

Media Black Out

As stated by constitutional lawyer Rocco Galati in the video below, sources have indicated to him that the government will often instruct the mainstream media, when it comes to certain stories, as to whether or not they can cover the story or how they should go about covering it. This means that government can effectively control the media and hide information from the public whenever it likes, unless it trickles through alternative news sources like what you are reading right now.

Marijuana Legalized in Oregon, Alaska and DC as People Realize Benefits

by Christina Sarich
Natural Society
Nov 12, 2014

While Colorado and Washington have already been enjoying the legalization of marijuana for a year now, two additional states have decided that cannabis prohibition should end – Oregon and Alaska. Voters in Washington D.C. have also chosen to legalize the plant.

In both Oregon and Alaska, the law legalizes personal possession, manufacture and sale of marijuana for people 21 years of age and older. People of the states will now be able to freely utilize a plant credited with healing cancer, calming autistic children, reducing seizures, and helping with pain management for countless individuals.

Voters overwhelmingly supported initiatives that supported legalization in these states, and ended jail time or fines supported by our bloated criminal justice system. Although the Federal Drug war has imposed billions on taxpayers to ‘fight’ the war on drugs, Denver, Colorado is ironically enjoying a 14.6% decrease in crime from the same time last year. It is also well known that most ‘cannabis-crimes’ are merely for possession and there is little violence among users.

SaskPower ordered to remove all smart meters in the province — video included

SaskPower ordered to remove all smart meters in the province

By   Global News

[VIDEO]

REGINA – SaskPower has announced that they are removing all the smart meters that were installed in the province.The minister responsible for SaskPower Bill Boyd said the utility company will be taking out all 105,000 smart meters around Saskatchewan.

“I think the concerns about safety are paramount here, the concerns are significant enough, anytime families are at risk in Saskatchewan, actions have to be taken and that’s why we’ve directed SaskPower accordingly,” said Minister Boyd.

The removal of the smart meters over the next six to nine months will cost around $15 million, according to SaskPower.

“We view it as similar to a recall situation and the people of Saskatchewan shouldn’t be responsible for the costs of this and we’ll do everything we can to recover those costs,” said Boyd.

Boyd will also be reviewing why the new meters weren’t properly studied or tested before they were installed in homes.

“I don’t know whether there was enough testing done. We’ll certainly be conducting, along with SaskPower, an internal review of the procurement procedures around this around the safety concerns people had,” added Boyd.

“We want to determine when these were originally ordered, if there were safety concerns known at that point in time, so we have a lot of questions we’re going to be discussing with SaskPower about how this came to be.”

Earlier this month SaskPower temporarily suspended its installation of smart meters around the province after half a dozen caught fire.

Little City, Big Heart: Middleton, ID Unanimously Bans NDAA Indefinite Detention

by Dan Johnson
P.A.N.D.A. People Against The NDAA
Mar 26, 2014

MIDDLETON, ID – In a unanimous vote of 4-0, the Middleton, Idaho city council banned the application of the NDAA and the laws of war within their city. With the passage of the Middleton resolution, 5 cities have now stood for the Constitutional rights of their people.

What’s unique about this win though, is the sincerity and quick action of the council. Middleton is a little city, with a big heart.

The 2012 NDAA, or National Defense Authorization Act, contains two provisions, sections 1021 and 1022, which violate over 14 provisions of the U.S. Constitution. These sections, known as the detention provisions, allow for the indefinite military detention of any person, including an American citizen, without charge or trial. Further, they allow for the extrajudicial execution, torture, and rendition of any person held in military custody, as well as the lockdown of American cities under military control.

Middleton joins Albany, NY, Webster and Oxford, MA, Gem County, and Emmett, ID in declaring their city is not a battlefield, not subject to the laws of war and no person will:

“arrest or capture any person in Middleton, or citizen of Middleton within the United States, with the intent of “detention under the law of war,” or

actually subject a person in Middleton to “disposition under the law of war,” or

subject any person to targeted killing in Middleton, or citizen of Middleton within the United States”

subject any person to targeted killing in Middleton, or citizen of Middleton within the United States”

PANDA Idaho’s Jason Casella noted:

“Panda Idaho would like to congratulate the great people of Middleton who have now become the second city in Idaho to block indefinite detention and laws of war. They have elected a fine group to represent them. I have been to a lot of city council meetings and have never seen one so efficient and detail oriented. The people applaud Middleton’s council for honoring their oath and doing so with no reservations.”

As Jason said, the city council of Middleton deserves some special recognition. In most cities and counties, including all of the above, the NDAA Resistance had to apply massive pressure to get anything passed.

In Middleton, it was different. Thanks to the behind-the scenes work of Councilor Lenny Riccio, when the Resistance presented the Restoring Constitutional Governance Resolution for their consideration, the council did not hesitate. They understood their oaths, acting from their hearts. Without a word, and with only three citizens in the chambers asking them to defend the rights of their people, the council did not hesitate.

Acting on one accord, after less than 10 minutes of discussion, the Middleton City Council passed the RCGR unanimously on Wednesday.

PLEASE take the time with us to thank one of the city council members or mayor of Middleton for their relentless dedication to liberty:

Oops, I Voted for Liberty: Gem County, ID Defeats NDAA 2-1

by Dan Johnson
P.A.N.D.A. People Against The NDAA
Feb 26, 2014

PANDA NDAA Victory Updates
BOWLING GREEN – In a vote of 2-1, the Gem County, Idaho Commission voted to prohibit the application of the laws of war, including under the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), 2001 Authorization for Use of Military Force, and any similar law or authority, in Gem County.

One commissioner, even, did it on accident.

The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) is an annual Federal law which typically authorizes funding for the armed forces. However, in 2012, two sections, Section 1021 and 1022, were slipped in. These sections authorize the President of the United States to order the military to detain any person, indefinitely, without charge or trial, and apply the laws of war to U.S. soil.

People Against the NDAA (PANDA) has been facilitating local and state level resistance to the 2012 NDAA for over two years. Founded in January 2012, PANDA has introduced or pushed over 18 pieces of state legislation, including 2014 legislation in Arizona, Idaho, and Wyoming. On the local level, PANDA has helped NDAA Resistance leaders in 4 cities, including the Capitol of New York, prohibit the NDAA’s detention provisions and the laws of war in their city.

When PANDA Idaho showed up with over 40 people to a Gem County, ID Commissioners meeting on Monday, the Chair of the Commission, Carlos Bilbao, ordered over 30 people to leave. PANDA Idaho’s Jason Casella was there:

Concerned and vigilant citizens came to the county commission at 4pm on a Monday leaving work early or completely missing work to ensure their rights are protected. They were blindsided when they showed up in support of the RCG and shuffled into a room upstairs where they could hardly hear what was happening. When citizens informed commissioner Carlos Bilbao that ‘the clerk has an open courtroom and we can use that’ the commissioner responded that “he is in charge, not her.”

In the video below, you can hear muffled complaints from the people in attendance, asking to use the upstairs room, the hallway, or another place where they could meet and still see the meeting in progress. The Commission refused.

After unceremoniously kicking their citizens out of the meeting, the commission debated sending a letter to Congress as well as voting on the resolution. This resolution, drafted by the Patriot Coalition, would go further than a simple letter in that it would recognize the laws of war, including under the NDAA, as unConstitutional and therefore unlawful in their County. This would prohibit its use, and require local, state and Federal law enforcement to prevent its application in Gem County.

Regardless of the actions of the chair, thanks to the leadership of Commissioner Mark Rekow and Jason Casella, the Restoring Constitutional Governance Resolution (RCG) passed 2-1.

The best part?

Chair Bilbao accidentally voted ”yes” on the resolution.

While assuming he was voting on a letter to Congress, Chair Bilbao accidentally voted to pass the RCG Resolution. Toward the end of the video below, you can see him completely confused as to his vote, and, after Jason asks if they voted on the Resolution, he doesn’t realize he voted yes on both. Yet he did, and whether by accident or on purpose, liberty, civil rights, and the unalienable right to a fair trial will take hold in Gem County, Idaho.

By passing the RCG Resolution, Gem County, Idaho become the first county in the nation to completely ban the laws of war, including the NDAA, in its jurisdiction. PANDA Idaho’s Jason Casella noted:

“I want to thank all of the great citizens of gem counting for acting on the issue and making the sacrifice to be at the courthouse on a Monday afternoon.”

There are many things coming down the pipeline as the national security state, and the militarization of America, continues. But when it comes to the NDAA, 2 years of concentrated effort is starting to pay off.

Albany, NY – Oct 7th, 2013
Oxford, MA – Oct 9th, 2013
Webster, MA – Oct 21st, 2013
Emmett, ID – Dec 17th, 2013
Gem County, ID – February 24th, 2014

On this issue, at least, the tide has turned in our favor.

PANDA Idaho is working with citizens in over 10 cities and counties in the state to defeat the NDAA at a local level, while over 60 cities are considering it nationwide. Grab your packet and start taking back your county/city HERE: http://pandaunite.org/takeback/

Yet he did, and whether by accident or on purpose, liberty, civil rights, and the unalienable right to a fair trial will take hold in Gem County, Idaho.

By passing the RCG Resolution, Gem County, Idaho become the first county in the nation to completely ban the laws of war, including the NDAA, in its jurisdiction. PANDA Idaho’s Jason Casella noted:

“I want to thank all of the great citizens of gem counting for acting on the issue and making the sacrifice to be at the courthouse on a Monday afternoon.”

There are many things coming down the pipeline as the national security state, and the militarization of America, continues. But when it comes to the NDAA, 2 years of concentrated effort is starting to pay off.

Albany, NY – Oct 7th, 2013
Oxford, MA – Oct 9th, 2013
Webster, MA – Oct 21st, 2013
Emmett, ID – Dec 17th, 2013
Gem County, ID – February 24th, 2014

On this issue, at least, the tide has turned in our favor.

PANDA Idaho is working with citizens in over 10 cities and counties in the state to defeat the NDAA at a local level, while over 60 cities are considering it nationwide. Grab your packet and start taking back your county/city HERE: http://pandaunite.org/takeback/
