Many Conservative Americans have grown painfully aware, this week, of a lawless impetus by the Republican establishment in support of Obama's illegal amnesty plan.
We were first made aware of a surprising number of US House member Republicans, who were in support of giving way to Obama on the massive government spending plan.
Despite an election that occurred only about 5 weeks ago-- in which voting Americans swept the so-called Conservative wing of US government into power--a large number of Progressive Republicans have joined in with Obama and the Democrat party and against the election's obvious mandate.
According, rather inadvertently, to the Associated Press, Sen. Ted Cruz moved to spotlight these Senators when he proposed a point of order regarding Obama's executive amnesty plan related to H.R. 83:
"Ted Cruz infuriated several GOP colleagues with a last-minute attempt to force a vote on President Barack Obama's executive actions on immigration.
The move upended lawmakers' weekend plans and, more troubling for his party, gave Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., an opening to move forward on long-stalled Obama nominees.
When Cruz got his vote Saturday, he lost badly, 74-22, as even Republicans who agree with him on immigration repudiated his effort. Moments later, Congress cleared the spending bill."
Cruz, in fact, knew he would lose his motion; however, Senator Cruz must have thought it important to get the facts down on record with regard to which Republican Senators are actually in support of Obama's lawless amnesty plan.
Now a Permanent Part of the Congressional Record.....
Below is the list of positively identified 'Progressive-Establishment' Republicans who voted against Sen. Cruz and actually favor Obama's executive order granting illegal amnesty to at least 4 million illegal aliens, circumventing US law and the US Constitution against the will of the people:
The fact that the Associated Press consistently fails to report the truth behind many of its stories (if the story does not fit with the overall agenda) subsumes the notion that the AP did, in fact, publish the story in order to discredit Conservative Senator Ted Cruz.
According to the AP's storyline, the notion that several Progressive Republicans criticized Cruz was the lede or core idea of their story:
"You should have an end goal in sight if you're going to do these types of things and I don't see an end goal other than irritating a lot of people," said Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah.
Sen. Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., said it was a repeat of last year's shutdown showdown over Obama's health care law, when it was engineered by Cruz and Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah. Isakson said it was a movie he had seen before and "wouldn't have paid money to see it again." He called Cruz's move a problem, not a strategy.
However, the true idea within the impetus of the event, was not how Cruz irritated his Republican colleagues; but rather, the true nature of Cruz's move brilliantly exposed those Senators, for once and for all, who are not in actual league with the Conservative base of the Republican party.
Now, Obama's co-conspirators within the Republican party have found their permanently exposed place on the public record with just one little procedural vote.
A thing flawlessly executed by the shrewd Senator from Texas, however, the question which now must be asked, aside from all of the usual notions, is why are the Republicans doing this-- and against the will of their own party?
The real reason is not the one being talked about within the usual circles.

As we watch the now well beyond odd Agenda continually unfold in American governance, the pattern is becoming oh-so-familiar to those who watch closely.
Despite the fact that Obama has finally transformed himself from petulant Messiah to incipient Pariah --even within his own party--the ideological agenda items keep coming, along with heavily demigogued solutions as faithfully engineered by those who have uncharacteristically denied their saviour at least three times now, and before the cock has even crowed.
These agenda items which consistently beg to be incepted by the Socialist Left of the US, speaks to a perceived chasm within the Democrat party which may only exist as kabuki theater being trotted about the political stage by the remaining stalwarts, those who yet secretly cherish in their chieftian, what they now lukewarmly deny.
The extreme-left Democrat party angst as hammered-out on the anvil of Obama's hope and change, has been largely exposed to the citizens of America now; indeed, despite the contest being nearly over, the game can still be played into the final quarter, it's the progressive injuries now, that count.
But, what is the all encompassing agenda, and how is it being played?
It begins with a mere spark, an incident which could be anything real or imagined, but which gathers the proletariat's alarmed attention, and ends with the government's well-intentioned solution, which may only appear to alleviate the initial problem. In Hegelian terms, it's a crisis only because those in positions of mass manipulative power, deem the event to be of singular importance and structure enough for an advanced societal solution.
These Hegelian crisis' seem to parade before the American people until one particular event, occurring here or there, gains enough of a movement to become an item which can be manipulatively advanced into a 'strategic solution.'
In each of these instances, those in positions of authority flock towards the event in question much as vultures to a carcass, and pick it over until nothing but the gleamingly unrecognizable bones of the unfortunate event ultimately remains. From there, the skeletal remains can then be caricatured into virtually any form, albeit rarely the thing it originally was.
One can never quite tell at the next overall agenda item being pursued, by those in power, because most of us simply cannot achieve the necessary altitude to view the entire picture. However, the initial event while often real, forever results in a fix designed to achieve ends not at all in commonality with a truly workable solution.
In essence, the problem could be anything that injures or irritates; a fall on the steps of a home, for instance. While most of us would apply common sense in noting that clumsiness can often cause injury, the Hegelian statists will swing into action to tear the offending steps down --either to build a ramp, or perhaps even tear the entire house down altogether, in the most extreme of instances.
It's what they try to build in its place, which bears watching.
Most of us both know and can see that something is most definitely afoot in the case of America, and yet because we're unaware of the explicit end game, we can't possibly fathom how the pieces and parts of the overall undertaking will somehow flow together.
For example, the plains of Nazca when viewed from exceptional altitudes, will show us a variety of impressively large etchings upon the Earth made thousands of years ago, however, those situated on the flat ground which are part of the etchings couldn't possibly understand the overall picture-- because they're simply to close to effectively view it.
However, once the proper height is attained we can easily see the simple form which the etchings comprise.
This particular paradigm is perhaps the best way to understand the certain commonalities being played by those in penultimate power to achieve ends in which none of us could effectively imagine at, especially while standing at the very heart of the canvas or project.
But, it's more than just the marks being difficult so see, at least from a close-up perspective, that's at work here
It is, additionally, an impressive number of deceptions and illusions enfolded into one another in such a way as we can't see what's at the heart of the overall effort. Here, what's at work could be described as both the US Government and the centralized elitist's Matryoshka-styled efforts to achieve their overall goal or agenda.
Matryoshka, by the way, refers to the old Russian matryoshka or bubushka dolls which many of us have played with at some point in our lives.
The unguessable dolls initially appear as one brightly rendered wooden doll painted to appear as a Russian village woman in traditional 1800's garb. But a removable cap at the base of the doll when opened, reveals yet another doll, slightly different in appearance, fit neatly inside of the initial, larger doll.
As each sequentially smaller doll is opened, yet another smaller doll is revealed, each slightly different than the doll preceding it, until the final doll-- as the base, is revealed--typically an infant or baby at the very core, or for our purposes, the end-game solution wrapped in a number of different guises, at least initially.
Who could've guessed that Obama's fraudulent journey with the Democrats to eventually achieve nationalized mandatory health care, which is already proving to be far more expensive in overall costs than initially sold, was introduced within the argument of healthcare being too expensive and not covering enough Americans?
Why take over America's healthcare? Why not simply expand already existing Medic-aid? Lets do both! The Healthcare mandate was never about providing coverage for all , rather, it was about government taking healthcare away from business and individual control and moving it into the government sector for complete and ultimate economic control.
But why, especially when a majority of Americans were well satisfied with their healthcare?
The stimulus, yet another example, was initially designed to stimulate jobs in the wounded US economy, a thing it never did by the way. But, what the stimulus did achieve was actually utilized to add another trillion dollars to the baseline budget for each successive year--the nexus for placing the US at an impossible debt of $ 18 trillion dollars, and all in six years under Obama's control.
Why run up the debt so massively while simultaneously placing America's financial stability in peril?
Illegal aliens, of the terrestrial kind in this case, are also a concurrent major problem with an impossible inflow of millions into the US, which has consistently been outlined by both Obama and the Dems as owing to the need for immigration reform, i.e. amnesty. Rather than fixing the porous border, via a confluence of increased border vigilance, enforcement, and fences, Obama has continually touted the need for reform (read amnesty) while never, ever, addressing the need to physically secure the border.
How can any form of reform help when existing laws aren't being enforced, and the border remains so open that toddlers can easily cross it? A better question might be, why is it so important to move millions of Central Americans northward into North America?
Is it simply about more Liberal voters and cultural dilution, or is there a greater goal?
Climate change, another example, is being prefaced as a crisis greater than both horrendous disease (such as Ebola) and the growing terrorist ISIS threat in the Mideast. This, even while earth's temperatures have not increased in the last twenty years.
So, why the need to create endless new regulations and expensive programs to control a climate which cannot be controlled?
In the great financial meltdown, banks were blamed for loaning too easily, even when the US government was the entity most at fault for forcing the banks to lend, so easily. So, how can fixing a problem created by government regulation be achieved by yet increasing government's regulatory involvement ?
These are only a few of the self-defeating inquiries, but as initially noted, even when the government conceptually engineered many of these issues, the solution, if you will note, always points towards more central government involvement and more horrendously reckless solutions.
Feckless Solutions Reckless by Design
The Ferguson debacle may yet be another excellent example of government gone wild in effecting a solution to a non-existent problem. The government articulates racism as the cause of a common criminal of color being shot and killed, despite his demonically charging at a police officer who was already wounded by the man.
The government engineered solution yet to arrive in this case?
Despite the environs of both New York and St Louis being under the control of hard-left Democrat stylists, the solution will be towards more government involvement, and with the efforts being expended by those in power, perhaps even the eventual nationalization of US police forces. It's the only solution that fits into the most recently preceding babushka doll set, and it's the pattern that fits most closely.
But, if we were rise up to a high enough elevation to view the entire picture, what would we see etched upon the surface bringing all of these diverse and yet somehow related elements into connectivity?
After America: The North American Union
Think of it as "digging the footings" or maybe lining out the new foundation, because, we already have the plans being set into motion, but how do we get to the actual building phase, which necessarily ensues after the "great" tearing-down.
“After America, there is North America,” dutifully explains Ex-CIA Director David Petraeus, the former U.S. military commander , who was attending a conference titled “After America, What?”
The meeting was held at the Margaret Thatcher Conference on Liberty on June 18, 2014, as hosted by the Center for Policy Studies in Great Britain. Petraeus claims he "threw away the question mark and boldly proclaimed the coming North American decades." Petraeus, a member of both Bilderberg and the Council on Foreign Relations, was essentially celebrating the end of the US Constitution which he once swore to defend.
5:48:31 "After America, what?" Chair: Professor Michael Clarke. Hon John Howard, Dr Keyu Jin, General Petraeus.
From New American: “The ex-commander of U.S. forces in Afghanistan and Iraq essentially celebrated the end of U.S. independence – and by extension, the demise of the Constitution.”
The plans for this union, go all the way back to NAFTA, during the Clinton Years, and actually extends well into the Bush years, as explained by Lou Dobbs in 2005:
President Bush, whose Father George H.W. Bush initially introduced "a new world order" for modern times, began laying the "official" groundwork in 2005, but when challenged on the plans originally titled as SPP, dumped the information from the White House's website.
While left-wing writers and publications typically bray like asses when contemplating such things as "The New World Order" and other machinations, including the climate change hoax, they simultaneously ignore world leaders, scientists, and prominent eschatologists when they anti-proselytize endlessly on these very subjects.
However, in early September 2014, none other than elitist Henry Kissinger published a book urging the need for this New World Order, in his tome accurately titled "World Order" which could easily be extrapolated out to mean "World Control," in the first several chapters.
The book is, in fact, dedicated to the need for this "New Order" while the luminaries mystifyingly wax antithetical on the very idea's existence.
So, the answer to all of these swirling questions with regard to why are they doing all of these things and what's the penultimate end-game, the answer seems to be hiding in plain site, at least for all who are willing to see it.
The end-game, at least for America, is the North American Union, which will then become a confederate nation within a globally controlled single governing body, with the UN acting as sergeant-at-arms.
However, as a future North American citizen, albeit one completely stripped of constitutional rights, one shouldn't feel left out--you see these plans extend across the globe for each major population sector as indicated in the lede graphic for this article.
For Europe, it began in 1999 with the advent of the European Union or Eurozone, from there the idea has matriculated into the UN in the form of agenda-21 also known as "sustainable development", among other agenda defining items, which is a world-conforming achitecture designed to bring each nation into the initial stages of New World Order compliance.
The Rest of The Story....
But there's a depth or perhaps a mysterious aspect to these facts which many know nothing about.
It's the premise that the original aspect of these international Unions or economic regions can be traced all the way back to ancient times-- as in the Biblical prophecies of both Daniel and Revelation, and much later pre-conceived in modern times by none other than an entity known as the "Club of Rome."
These prophecies in both Daniel and Revelation unveal the implication of a ten-kingdom structure being set up in the end times. Daniel 7:78 actually describes a fourth and final world kingdom of man consisting of ten horns or ten nation-states, the final one being destroyed by the coming of the Son of Man.
In essence this has all been predicted long before, but now it appears to be happending.
According to Bible.org "The fourth kingdom under the domination of the little horn becomes a world empire described in the phrase: “Shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces” (Dan 7:23)." If this passage is allowed to speak as a genuine prophetic revelation, it necessarily requires a future ten-nation confederacy as a key to the political and international situation in the days just preceding the second coming of Christ and His kingdom."
But what of the Club of Rome?
Well, according to relatable research, the Club of Rome is a globalist New World Order group incepted in 1968. The Club of Rome hearkens back to Anglo-American financiers and the old "Black Nobility" families of Europe, who use social calamities to eventually achieve future subjects under a welfare state, making them both tractable and completely controllable in a very maniacal way, it would seem via the proxies of existing useful apparatchiks.
The overall impetus, within all of this, appears to be one of complete control across the planet by a centralized government, paving the way for one eventual "principle" achieving emperor-like status, via political manipulation and control.
You see, the thing to remember is that at no time in world history, has one centralized government ever been in control of the entire globe, however, the one-worlders have now trotted themselves out on the stage for all to see and are even now doing the necessary grunt work to achieve these ends, which they will no doubt see as good, at least at first.
So, the next time you see those within your government advocating for some new change or need which initially grew out of nothing, and, where no true problem currently exists, you can bet that the machinations involved will be aimed at tying up yet another loose end leading all of us, especially our children and grandchildren, down the long and painful road to serfdom.
A step back away from the jangle of often conflicting voices and views engineered primarily to deflect and abstract from what has become painfully obvious, often allows an entirely different perspective or an even more critical worldview perhaps, as the puzzle begins to materialize right before our very eyes.

Volunteers from the 35,000-member group known as Oath Keepers had been keeping silent vigil in an effort to protect apartments and businesses in downtown Ferguson after a large number of businesses were either destroyed or severely damaged.
The reason for the Oath Keepers' intervention, and what happened next, is where the story becomes even more compelling.
By the account of some highly appointed officials, the Democrat governor of Missouri had actually withheld the National Guard from protecting the businesses due to political interests in concert with both the Obama regime and the DOJ, whose primary interests fall in line with the community organizing activists in charge of roiling Ferguson.
The Oath Keepers, as a result, had decided it was time to respond and assigned volunteers to keep silent vigil in both the high risk and unguarded areas. Unfortunately for those businesses and individuals still at risk, the Oath Keepers can no longer keep to their mission.
According to the St Louis Dispatch, Stewart Rhodes, the founder of Oath Keepers, had this to say of the latest governmental absurdity:
"We thought they were going to do it right this time," Rhodes said of government response to the grand jury decision released Monday in the Michael Brown case. "But when Monday rolled around and they didn't park the National Guard at these businesses, that's when we said we have got to do something.
"Historically, the government almost always fails to protect people," he added.
The reason for the abrupt deactivation of their mission had nothing to do with any Oath Keepers decision, but rather, from the actual officials in charge who haven't exactly executed their assigned mission of protecting life and property very successfully.
In what amounts to an order of 'cease and desist,' the Oath Keepers were shut down under threat of arrest by authorities, if they contined their mission of guarding lives and property.
That not being quite enough, it gets even better.
In fact, the police had known of the presence of Oath Keepers earlier in the week, it wasn't until the Media, who're largely in support of the often riotous protesters, complained to police with regard to the Oath Keepers' presence, that the police eventually ordered the Oath Keepers to get out of town or else.
Indeed, the members who were carefully assigned to Ferguson have not just been guarding the businesses. The Oath Keepers there have actually helped many businesses by boarding up storefronts and keeping stores of water and fire extinguishers at the ready, in addition to their weapons, if needed.
So, the US government, in cahoots with the local government, is now performing the astoundingly absurd act of actually protecting the violent protesters while threatening the very volunteers who are there to protect and defend the undefended.
As a result, the Oath Keepers, adamantly state, “We are going to go back as protesters,” reports the St Louis Dispatch:
Oath Keepers founder Rhodes, who said he is Mexican-American, stressed that Oath Keepers is not anti-government. He said the volunteers handling rooftop security in Ferguson were current or former government employees and first responders, many who have intense military, police and EMS training.
However, Rhodes' point--with regard to not being 'anti-government'--offers up a hint to the real problem at the heart of the Ferguson protests. The Oath Keepers' central thesis goes directly counter against those seeking 'real change' in Ferguson:
"Oath Keepers is a non-partisan association of current and formerly serving military, reserves, National Guard, veterans, Peace Officers, and Fire Fighters who will fulfill the Oath we swore, with the support of like minded citizens who take an Oath to stand with us, to support and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, so help us God. Our Oath is to the Constitution."
The protests popping up in Ferguson and other areas across the US are not at all about justice, but rather the central theme is about Social Justice, a thing altogether different than the lip-service being offered up by the mish-mash of Ferguson protesters, who are in fact, anti-system and, therefore, anti-government with a capital "A."
Their goals, as with the anti-Capitalist "Occupy movement" are not, in fact, about Michael Brown, but rather about harnessing an event, in this case a black killed by police, in order to achieve ends not ordinarily achievable by conventional means.
The protesters are in effect aiming for the "Change we can believe in" and "Transformation of America" as much earlier promised by the community organizer-in-chief and President, Barack H. Obama.
This is, in fact, why the Police are running Oath Keepers out of town; they might actually get in the way, and they certainly aren't "Down for the Cause"--I mean, just read their oath....these protests aren't about defending the Constitution or justice, they're actually about utterly and completely defeating both.

Warning: The video is real, unedited, and may be very disturbing to some viewers.
By Barry Secrest
As the Ferguson rioting, looting, robberies, shootings, and highly organized civil disobedience events are now being witnessed all across America, the case of the killing of a young white man by a black Utah police officer remains largely under wraps.
This event has been ignored, despite having been recorded on the officer's bodycam video, which clearly shows the victim in a non-threatening retreat away from the officer. It is an almost surreal counterpoint to what happened in Ferguson.
On August 11th, only a couple of days after Michael Brown was shot on August 9th, an African-American police officer shot and killed an unarmed, white, 21 year-old man coming out of a Salt Lake City convenience store.
Supposedly, Dillon Taylor was killed only because he didn't hear the police officer ordering him to the ground. He was wearing headphones at the time of his killing.
The bodycam video from the police officer, Bron Cruz, was finally made available by authorities on or about September 31st, and Taylor can actually be seen retreating from the black officer, as clearly documented in the video, and as opposed to charging towards the officer as in Brown's case; comparatively speaking, no one appears to be even mildly interested in these facts.
I was scared to death. The last thought I had go through my mind when I pulled the trigger, and I'll never forget this … was that I was too late. I was too late. And because of that, I was gonna get killed. Worse, my (partner) was gonna get killed.
Authorities cleared Officer Cruz of any wrong doing in the deadly event; however, in light of the frenzied incidents now occurring in Ferguson, there has been renewed public interest in this Utah case.
"So when he stopped, I stopped. And then he starts to turn around, I tell him to get on the ground, get on the ground.
He turns, and when he looked at me, he made like a grunting, like aggravated sound and he starts, he turns and he’s coming back towards me. His first step is coming towards me, he kind of does like a stutter step to start running. When he does that, his left hand goes in a fist and goes to his side, his right one goes under his shirt in his waistband and he starts running at me."
-Officer Darren Wilson, FPD
It may be that Officer Cruz was somehow justified in the shooting--but if that's the case--then how can Officer Darren Wilson not be?
As we watch the bedlam that has continually unfolded in Ferguson, many are wondering why only a relative few people know of the deadly event in Salt Lake City, especially in light of what happened in Ferguson.
Even more remarkable, or unremarkable as the case may be, according perhaps to both one's politics and skin color, there was neither a robbery incident nor an act of violence threatened towards the officer in question, in Utah.
Where is the Department of Justice?
Where are the remarks by President Obama?
Where is Eric Holder's investigation?
In fact, where are the canvassing news stories from the media?
The wide disparity of coverage would seem to indicate that one human being's death might be of far greater political value to the US free press and those in power, than another's. Many might infer that the incongruity in coverage might merely operate as an avatar of an underlying racism, which now exists among an unquestionably co-opted mainstream media.
By way of identification, this is the same media which refused to even report the Utah police officer's race, but rather referred to the African-American officer as "non-white" in the initial report.
In essence, it may not necessarily be the lack of attention to the one or the confluence of attention towards the other, but rather the wide disparity between each that truly characterizes these events as bellwether.
