The United States of America is a Foreign Corporation Controlled From Abroad


This article could shake the foundation of the Western legal system, because it contains proof that the United States is a CRIMINAL corporation controlled by foreign powers. Furthermore, it exposes the fraud of the court system and teaches you how to free humanity.

Please help restore the Republic for the United States of America and freedom throughout the world by reposting this article on the Internet or sharing it to as many people as possible. ~ PL

One of the greatest tricks that the New World Order (NWO) did to enslave the people of the world was to secretly create a corporate version of counties, cities, states, and countries.

By doing this, the leaders of the NWO and their minions were able to trick us to unknowingly agree to be “agents” or “employees” of these corporations through the use of fraudulent contracts (i.e., birth certificate, social security card, driver’s license).

The information in this article is more focused on the USA, because I am more familiar with the so called laws in the USA and the U.S. legal system.

If you do not live in the USA, you should still read this article for the reason that the same legal system that has enslaved Americans is the same legal system that has enslaved most people of the world.

The “laws” in the USA are not really laws; instead, they are acts and statutes of the United States, Incorporated. In other words, they are rules of a corporation.

Like any corporation (i.e., Walmart, Target), you are NOT bound to the rules (acts and statutes) of the United States, Inc. unless you agree to be a citizen (“employee”) of this corporation. The only laws you (the natural living, breathing person) are bound to are the Laws of Nature.

Did You Know the United States is a FOREIGN Corporation?

Before I reveal the three different types of citizenship (citizen-ship or citizen of a ship) of the “United States”, I need to explain to you what the United States is, so that you know it is NOT a country.
When the U.S. government refers to the United States, 99 percent of the time it is referring to the corporation known as the United States, Inc.

Some people claimed that the United States, Inc. was sold in 2013 and is now known as THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, INC. I have not found evidence to back up this claim, so I do not know if it is true. Be aware that the name of this corporation is written in ALL CAPS.

If you know how the legal system works, you should know that when a name is written in all caps, it can change the meaning of that name.

For example, in legal terms “the United States of America” is not the same as “THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA”.

The purpose of this is to trick you to think that they are the same thing. This process also applies to your legal name. The content in block quotation below will explain this process further. It is extracted from my fourth seminar titled Word Magic and the Power of Words.

“In commerce, when you see a name written in all capital letters, it is a corporate name or a legal name, which is a corporation. The legal name plays a significant role in your life, because it is used by the government to identify the corporate you. Whenever you receive a government document issued to you, 99 percent of the time your legal name on the document is written in all caps. This is why your legal name on your driver’s license, social security card, and birth certificate is written in all caps.

“The process that allows the government to legally claim you as a corporation involves the creation of a fictional you, which is the name written in all CAPITAL LETTERS, and then tricking you to agree to be that artificial person or legal name. This legal name was created shortly after you were born and was recorded on a bond. This bond that represents the date of your birth is known as your birth certificate.

“The birth certificate is actually a certificate of debt slavery which is why it is recorded on a bond. defines bond as, “a contract by specialty to pay a certain sum of money; being a deed or instrument under seal, by which the maker or obligor promises, and thereto binds himself, his heirs, executors, and administrators, to pay a designated sum of money to another.”

“Your legal name, which is used to identify you (the body of water or liquid), is written in all capital letters because it is a piece of liquidated capital or “cap-it-all.” In other words, it has been securitized and turned into a financial instrument. Hence, the term “liquidated capital.”

“To liquidate something is to sell it off entirely, or sell it to pay off a debt. It is called liquidated capital because you, the person who has been securitized, were born in the womb of your mother, which was mostly made of water (liquid). You are also mostly made of water. Because you are mostly made of liquid and have been securitized, you are considered liquidated capital.

“The purpose of liquidating you is to turn you into “capital money.” The word capital comes from the Latin word capitalis, which means “of the head,” hence “capital, chief, first.” It also comes from another Latin word caput, which translates to English as “head.”

“When you really think about this process, you should know that the process of turning you into capital money or liquidated capital is their way of saying that you have a “bounty on your head.” Your birth certificate is the bond with your all caps legal name written on it, and therefore it is the financial document that has the value of the bounty on your head. This is why your birth certificate is traded on the stock market.”

By now you should know that the United States is a corporation. If you want proof of this, look at subsections 15 and 15(A) in Title 28 U.S. Code § 3002 and you should see this sentence, ““United States” means— (A) a Federal corporation”.

What most people do not know about the United States, Inc. is that it is a FOREIGN corporation. Anyone who works for this foreign corporation is a foreign agent and is unknowingly or knowingly committing fraud against the American people.

It is no different than what the agents of the British Empire did to the American people back in the 1700s.

To be more specific, the politicians working in Washington D.C. and nearly every politician, judge, attorney, police officer, and government agent working throughout the USA are FOREIGN agents.

Because these government employees are foreign agents, DO NOT VOTE for any of them to represent you in office, including the president. If you do vote for them, you are committing TREASON against the Republic for the United States of America (the 50 union states).

Whether these foreign agents realize it or not, they are conspiring or helping the NWO and the Vatican to enslave the American people.

As Americans, we have lost control of our government over a century ago. This is what happens to a nation when its people become ignorant, take freedom for granted, ignore the actions of politicians, and do not study their history.

The Three Different Forms of the “United States” and the Three Different Types of U.S. Citizenship

According to the book titled You Know Something Is Wrong When….. “An American Affidavit of Probable Cause,” the three different forms of the United States are the Continental United States, the Federal United States, and the Corporate United States.

1. The Continental United States

In the book titled You Know Something Is Wrong When….. “An American Affidavit of Probable Cause,” it says that the Continental United States is “composed of now 50 geographically defined states and their living inhabitants.

Each such state is a sovereign nation with jurisdiction of the air, land, and sea associated with it. Those born within the borders of these states are American State Citizens by birthright, having all the guarantees of The Constitution, and all their Natural Rights intact.” They are also known as American Nationals.

In Title 8 U.S. Code § 1101 subsection (b)(iii)(M)(38), it says “The term “United States”, except as otherwise specifically herein provided, when used in a geographical sense, means the continental United States, Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Guam, the Virgin Islands of the United States, and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands.”

Be aware that the information in Title 8 U.S. Code § 1101 subsection (b)(iii)(M)(38), uses the lowercase “c” in the term “continental United States”.

In the book titled You Know Something Is Wrong When….. “An American Affidavit of Probable Cause,” it uses the uppercase “C” in the term “Continental United States”. When it comes to the legal system, a word spelled with a lowercase or an uppercase letter at the beginning of it can significantly change the meaning of that word. For this reason, both of the sources may be referring to two different “United States”.

In Title 8 CFR 215.1 subsection (f), it says “The term continental United States means the District of Columbia and the several States, except Alaska and Hawaii.” This sentence has the lowercase “c” in the term “continental United States”, so it is referring to the District of Columbia, also known as Washington D.C.

What you need to know about Washington D.C. is that it is a foreign city-state run by the Congress as an oligarchy. Washington D.C. was founded by a powerful masonic secret society called the Colombians. Hence the term “District of Columbia“.

2. The Federal United States

The Federal United States is made up of 50 “Federal States” plus seven physical states, which are often thought of as federal territories, making a total of 57 Federal States. The 50 Federal States are fictitious entities because they exist only in our minds and on paper.

The 57 Federal States are inhabited by United States Citizens and all the people born in Guam, Puerto Rico, and other Insular States, plus military employees, federal civilian, African Americans, political asylum seekers, and welfare recipients.

The Federal United States is a Democracy operating under the international Jurisdiction of the Sea (Admiralty Law). Be aware that the Democracy (the Federal United States) is not the same as the original USA, which is known as the Republic for the United States of America.

United States Citizens are statutory citizens and therefore they are artificial persons (corporations) that have no rights, only privileges. Because of these things, United States Citizens are bound to the international Jurisdiction of the Sea.

3. The Corporate United States

The Corporate United States (UNITED STATES, INC.) is composed of 185,000 corporations and roughly 390 million corporate U.S. CITIZENS. It is composed of “legal fiction entities”, including but not limited to C corps, S corps, LLC’s, non-profits, foundations, and trusts.

The Corporate United States operates similar to any corporation and is one of the largest corporations in the world. It is bigger than Walmart, Target, and McDonald’s combined!

One important thing you need to know about the term “legal fiction entities” is that it means artificial persons. An artificial person is also a corporation, as stated in Black’s Law Dictionary 6th edition.

In other words, U.S. CITIZENS are artificial persons or fictitious entities that only exist on paper. All these corporations (i.e., STATES, U.S. CITIZENS) are under the Jurisdiction of the Sea, which is based on Admiralty Law.

Proof that the USA is Controlled by Corporations

The United States is a foreign corporation pretending to represent the country known as the Continental United States or The United States of America (Major), which is a republic and not a democracy. To make matters worse, every county, city, and state has a corporate version of itself. For example, the STATE OF WEST VIRGINIA is not the same as West Virginia State.

The PDF file below shows evidence that the STATE OF WEST VIRGINIA is a corporation. Be aware that this is not only limited to West Virginia. All the 50 states have a corporate version of themselves. This also applies to the cities and counties.

To find evidence that your U.S. state is a corporation, visit this website and do a search using these words “state of [your state here]”. If you want more specific information, you may need to order a company credit report from a credit report site, such as

If you are having trouble viewing the PDF file below, visit this link.

The video below shows more evidence that the USA is controlled by corporations. I recommend watching the whole video. If you do not have time to watch the whole video, scroll to the 42 minute mark of the video and watch it to the 52 minute mark.

Do you realize now that the USA is controlled by corporations? Have you ever wondered why the United States has a president and a vice president? Under corporate law, every corporation is required to have a president and a vice president.

The current president (Obama) of the United States is not the president of a country, but is the president of a corporation (United States, Inc.). As a result, he does not need to be born in the USA to be eligible to be president. All the U.S. presidents since George Washington were also presidents of the corporate “United States.”

Proof that Nearly All United States Politicians are Traitors to the American People

The content in block quotation is an excerpt from my second seminar on Natural Law. It contains information that gives us some clue as to why nearly all United States politicians are traitors.

Nearly all politicians in the USA are TREASONISTS, because they swore an oath to a privately owned foreign corporation known as the UNITED STATES INCORPORATED. Washington D.C. or the District of Columbia is also a privately owned foreign corporation. Washington D.C. is NOT part of the USA, just like Vatican City is not part of Italy.

To find the evidence that nearly all politicians in the USA are treasonists, you need to be aware of Title 8 U.S. Code § 1481.

Under Title 8 U.S. Code § 1481:

“(a) A person who is a national of the United States whether by birth or naturalization, shall lose his nationality by voluntarily performing any of the following acts with the intention of relinquishing United States nationality—

(2) taking an oath or making an affirmation or other formal declaration of allegiance to a foreign state or a political subdivision thereof, after having attained the age of eighteen years;

(4)(A) accepting, serving in, or performing the duties of any office, post, or employment under the government of a foreign state or a political subdivision thereof, after attaining the age of eighteen years if he has or acquires the nationality of such foreign state;”

In simple terms, once an oath of office is taken by an American citizen, his citizenship is relinquished and thus he becomes a foreign agent. This happens because he swore an oath to the foreign UNITED STATES INCORPORATED and the foreign organization that controls it.

The Four Largest CRIMINAL Corporations in the World

1. The Vatican

The Vatican is the religious center for the New World Order (NWO). Every church in the USA is directly or indirectly controlled by the Vatican, especially Roman Catholic Churches. All churches in the USA are incorporated and therefore they belong to the U.S. federal government. The idea that there is a separation of church and state is a big fat lie!

The Vatican also controls the Crown of England, the Crown Temple, and the court system in the USA. This is why when you go to court, there is always an agent that represents the Crown and a judge wearing a black robe. The black robe uniform is the symbol representing a Jesuit priest.

Nearly every church in the USA and the world has been infiltrated by the Jesuits and the Knights Templar, which is why churches have crosses on their walls and roofs.

The cross is the main symbol of the Knights Templar and it has been used by certain secret societies long before the existence of Christianity. In other words, the cross is not really a symbol of Christianity. For strong evidence of these claims, download or view my third seminar and study the information in it.

These secret criminal organizations are the same organizations that the American people in the 1700s fought against to win their independence.

The Vatican is in the middle of all this corruption, which is why all roads tend to lead to Rome, home of the Vatican. This criminal corporation is committing crime against humanity in the name of “religion.”


2. The United Nations

The United Nations is a very powerful organization of the NWO and has more authority than the United States. This corporation provides trade, treaty, and negotiation services for its members, and has its own private army.

The main hidden agenda of the United Nations is to unite all nations under a fascist one-world government controlled by the banking elites of Europe and Israel.

The name Israel or Is-Ra-El represents the ancient gods Isis, Ra, and El. The United Nations is committing crimes against humanity through unlawful wars in the name of “peacekeeping”.

3. The United States

The United States is a corporation located in Washington D.C., also known as the District of Columbia. Washington D.C. is the military center for the NWO. The United States, Inc. has thousands of franchisees and contractors. One of its major contractors is the military industrial complex.

The United States, Inc. is committing crime against humanity by unlawfully going to war with other countries in the name of “freedom” and “democracy.” What it is actually doing is spreading its franchise throughout the world, similar to Walmart and McDonald’s.

4. The Inner City of London (Westminster)

The inner City of London is the financial center for the NWO. This city-state operates legal and banking services. The banks in the City of London is headed by the Bank of England, which is controlled by the House of Rothschild, an elite Illuminati banking family.

Most money collected from the American taxpayers is sent to the banks in the City of London and then is distributed to other banks affiliated with the NWO.

The inner City of London is committing crime against humanity by engineering economic crises and wars, and funding terrorist groups (i.e., ISIS, Al-Qaeda) throughout the world.

It is important to know that many of the people working for these four criminal corporations are good people. The problem is that most of them have no idea that these corporations are fronts for the New World Order, a secret organization composed of certain secret societies.

What Can You Do to Free Humanity?

One of the first steps to free humanity is to educate people about the New World Order and the legal system. When people are educated with the right knowledge, it increases their awareness and expands their consciousness.

These things are very important for achieving freedom. A simple way to educate people about the NWO and the legal system is to share this article to as many people as possible.

Take actions to support the brave souls who are exposing the NWO and the legal system. The Team of Hudok, Stalnaker, and Deegan is a great place to start. Dean CliffordKurt Kallenbach, and Santos Bonacci are three other brave souls who are doing an excellent job of exposing the NWO and the legal system.

Download or view my second seminar and study the information in it. My second seminar explains what Natural Law is and teaches you about your natural rights. Knowing what your natural rights are is essential for spiritual freedom.

My second seminar also exposes the secrets of the legal system and shows you how to defend your rights.

The video below does an excellent job of exposing the fraud of the legal system and the criminal activities of the United States, Inc. A must watch for anyone who wants to learn how to restore humanity’s freedom.

Why Men With Dark Intentions Destroyed the Library of Alexandria


Ancient civilizations are a fascinating topic, and it’s clear we have so much to learn from them when it comes to our way of life, our health, our technology, science, nature, consciousness, and the nature of reality itself.

Be it information in the form of written text, or advanced ancient structures like the Kailasa temple, one of 32 cave temples and monasteries located within the Ellora Caves in India, their knowledge — how they acquired it and how they constructed their masterpieces — remains a complete mystery.

With all of our modern day technology, knowledge, and wisdom, there is still no way to accomplish some of the feats of civilizations past, feats that required an extremely advanced understanding of mathematics, physics, and more.

There is evidence that many ancient achievements required an extremely advanced form of technology as well, and many examples to prove these assertions.

Another fascinating point to make is the fact that many groundbreaking discoveries within the realm of quantum mechanics, as well as neuroscience, closely resemble the teachings of several ancient civilizations and native American populations.

This is why today, there are conferences held every single year between academics and spiritual leaders, like Tibetan monks, to discuss how they relate, and books like Blackfoot Physics continue to be published.

Sometimes it seems we are re-learning much of the knowledge kept by the ancient world.

This is exactly why the burning of the library of Alexandria was such a tragedy. It was one of the greatest libraries in human history, holding a vast archive of manuscripts and books from all over the ancient world, and what our ancients would have themselves considered ancient.

It was built after the famous Alexander the Great conquered Egypt and acquired knowledge from all parts of the globe. From East to West, the teachings of multiple civilizations throughout human history up to that time could be found in the great library.

The books contained in this library touched upon every subject that concerns humanity, from health, science, and astronomy to geology, philosophy, mysticism, magic, knowledge of the spiritual world, and much more.

Manly P. Hall describes it as follows in The Secret Teachings of All Ages:

“Prior to the Christian Era seven hundred thousand of the most valuable books, written upon parchment, papyrus, vellum, and was, and also tablets of stone terra cotta, and wood, were gathered from all parts of the ancient world and housed in Alexandria, in buildings specially prepared for the purpose. This magnificent repository of knowledge was destroyed by a series of three fires.”

It was burned down in approximately A.D. 389  by Caesar, from the order of Theodosius I. Also known as Theodosius the Great, he was a Roman Emperor from AD 379 to AD 395, ruling over both the Eastern and the Western halves of the Roman Empire.

Libraries as such were well known to multiple ancient civilizations in Egypt, Mesopotamia, Asia Minor, Syria, and Greece, who were very impressed by Oriental knowledge.

There is literary evidence of Greek individuals visiting Egypt specifically to acquire knowledge: e.g., HerodotusPlato (particularly in Phaedrus and Timaeus), Theophrastus, and Eudoxus of Cnidus (as detailed by Diogenes Laërtius in the 3rd century CE).

According toe H.P. Blavatsky in Isis Unveiled:

“They (the Rabbis of Palestime and the wise men) say that not all the rolls and manuscripts, reported in history to have been burned by Caesar, by the Christian mob, in 389, by the Arab General Amuru, perished as it is commonly believed; and the story they tell is the following.:

“At the time of the contest for the throne, in 51 B.C., between Cleopatra and her brother Dionysius Ptolemy, the Bruckion, which contained over seven hundred thousand rolls all bound in wood and fire-proof parchment, was undergoing repairs and a great portion of the original manuscripts, considered among the most previous, and which were not duplicated, were stored away in the home of one of the librarians.

“Several hours passed between the burning of the fleet, set on fire by Ceasar’s order, and the moment when the first buildings situated near the harbor caught fire in their turn; and *** the librarians, aided by several hundred slaves attached to the museum, succeeded in saving the most previous of the rolls.”

Manly P. Hall writes that the books that were saved were actually buried in Egypt and in India, and until they are discovered, “the modern world must remain in ignorance concerning many great philosophical and mystical truths. The ancient world more clearly understood these missing links – the continuity of the pagan Mysteries in Christianity.”

These pagan mysteries, Hall writes, are the heart of mysticism, which actually represents true Christianity. This makes sense; any civilization, you would assume, would seek out the knowledge and wisdom of those prior. It’s one of many paths to truth, or at least new discoveries that help one in their contemplation of truth.

Hall states:

“There are persistent rumors that Jesus visited and studied in both Greece and India, and that a coin struck in His honor in India during the first century has been discovered. Early Christian records are known to exist in Tibet, and the Monks of a Buddhist monastery in Ceylon still preserve a record which indicates that Jesus sojourned with them and became conversant with their philosophy.

“Although early christianity shows every evidence of Oriental influence, this is a subject the modern church declines to discuss. If it’s ever established beyond question that Jesus was an initiate of the pagan Greek or Asiatic Mysteries, the effect on the more conservative members of the Christian faith is likely to be cataclysmic.”

Information like this, among other topics like life on other planets and sacred and magical (considered mythical by many) information about shamanism, magic, and sorcery, predate modern Christianity.

Different sects of Christianity, after the ancient Romans created their own version, now condemn these teachings even though they were embedded within the original doctrines.

This is one of many reasons the aristocracy of ancient Rome ordered the library destroyed, because it would ruin the foundations of what they were creating — a new religion for man to follow, one whose doctrine contradicted the one prior.

This type of religion was forced upon people, and those who did not follow were subject to death and exile. Anybody who questioned these new doctrines received harsh penalties throughout the ages, especially as time progressed and the expansion of civilization, from that point, moved forward.

“The early Christians used every means possible to conceal the pagan origin of their symbols, doctrines, and rituals. They either destroyed the sacred books of other peoples among whom they settled, or made them inaccessible to students of comparative philosophy, apparently believing that in this way they could stamp out all record of the pre-christian origin of their doctrines. In some cases the writings of various ancient authors were tampered with, passages of a compromising nature being removed or foreign material interpolated.”

Conquering the World

Before the creation of a certain type of Christianity by ancient Rome, truth seemed to be more apparent, but darkness seemed to have permeated the world of light even prior.

Atlantis is a great example, as Plato, among other ancient scholars, told us that the eventual demise of this civilization was brought forth by ego-driven desires that soon developed among them, when the Atlantean kings were “lured” from “the pathway of wisdom and virtue.”

“Filled with false ambition, the rulers of Atlantis determined to conquer the gods into his holy habitation and addressed them. Here Plato’s narrative comes to an abrupt end, for the Critias was never finished.”

“A technologically sophisticated but morally bankrupt evil empire – Atlantis – attempts world domination by force. The only thing standing it its way is a relatively small group of spiritually pure, morally principled and incorruptible people – the ancient Athenians.

“Overcoming overwhelming odds… the Athenians are able to defeat their far more powerful adversary simply through the force of their spirit. Sound familiar? Plato’s Atlantean dialogues are essentially an ancient greek version of ‘Star Wars.’” – Ken Feder, professor of archaeology, taken from his book Frauds, Myths and Mysteries: Science and Pseudoscience in Archaeology

The sacred teachings and artifacts in Atlantis were perverted and used for selfishness by some. These teachings made their way into Egypt, and eventually into ancient Greece, until the Roman Empire dominated the world, burned the library where many of these teachings were probably held, and disseminated their own version of knowledge and truth across the land.

Do some of these books lie within the libraries of the Vatican today? If much of the mythical stories we’ve heard and read about are real, they would indeed bring down the modern day understanding of religion and spirituality that’s been spread by the families of ancient Rome.

Are we looking at a cover-up of knowledge regarding “what is,” and have we been deceived?

The burning of Alexandria’s library was one tragic event involving the destruction of ancient knowledge, similar to the mass Native North American genocide that saw even more knowledge of humanity lost, stolen, and hidden.

This is why examining ancient sources of truth, or whatever is left of it, is always interesting, because it’s hard to receive something that’s been created and used as the backbone of deception — modern day religion.

Note: The Library of Alexandria was said to be burning for 6 months….


Las exploraciones con láser revelan la “megalópolis” maya debajo de la selva guatemalteca

Una vasta red interconectada de ciudades antiguas era el hogar de millones de personas más de lo que se pensaba.

En lo que se aclama como un “gran avance” en la arqueología maya, los investigadores han identificado las ruinas de más de 60,000 casas, palacios, carreteras elevadas y otras características hechas por humanos que han estado ocultas durante siglos bajo las selvas del norte de Guatemala.

Utilizando una tecnología revolucionaria conocida como LiDAR (abreviatura de “Detección y determinación de la luz”), los eruditos eliminaron digitalmente el dosel de las imágenes aéreas del paisaje ahora despoblado, revelando las ruinas de una civilización precolombina en expansión que era mucho más compleja y interconectados de lo que la mayoría de los especialistas mayas habían supuesto.

“Las imágenes LiDAR dejan en claro que toda esta región era un sistema de asentamiento cuya escala y densidad de población habían sido subestimadas”, dijo Thomas Garrison, un arqueólogo del Instituto Ithaca y explorador de National Geographic que se especializa en el uso de tecnología digital para la investigación arqueológica.


Garrison es parte de un consorcio de investigadores que participan en el proyecto, que fue encabezado por la Fundación PACUNAM, una organización sin fines de lucro guatemalteca que fomenta la investigación científica, el desarrollo sostenible y la preservación del patrimonio cultural.

El proyecto mapeó más de 800 millas cuadradas (2,100 kilómetros cuadrados) de la Reserva de la Biosfera Maya en la región de Petén en Guatemala, produciendo el mayor conjunto de datos LiDAR jamás obtenido para la investigación arqueológica.

Los resultados sugieren que Centroamérica apoyó una civilización avanzada que, en su apogeo hace unos 1.200 años, era más comparable a culturas sofisticadas como la antigua Grecia o China que a las ciudades dispersas y escasamente pobladas que la investigación desde tierra había sugerido durante mucho tiempo.

Además de cientos de estructuras previamente desconocidas, las imágenes LiDAR muestran carreteras elevadas que conectan centros urbanos y canteras.


Los sistemas complejos de irrigación y terrazas apoyaban la agricultura intensiva capaz de alimentar a las masas de trabajadores que remodelaron dramáticamente el paisaje.

Los antiguos mayas nunca usaron la rueda ni las bestias de carga, sin embargo, “esta era una civilización que literalmente movía montañas”, dijo Marcello Canuto, arqueólogo de la Universidad de Tulane y explorador de National Geographic que participó en el proyecto.

“Hemos tenido esta presunción occidental de que las civilizaciones complejas no pueden florecer en los trópicos, que en los trópicos es donde las civilizaciones van a morir”, dijo Canuto, quien realiza investigaciones arqueológicas en un sitio guatemalteco conocido como La Corona.

“Pero con la nueva evidencia basada en LiDAR de Centroamérica y Angkor Wat [de Camboya], ahora debemos considerar que las sociedades complejas se pueden haber formado en los trópicos y desde allí se abrieron paso hacia afuera”.

Información sorprendente

“LiDAR está revolucionando la arqueología de la misma forma que el Telescopio Espacial Hubble revolucionó la astronomía”, dijo Francisco Estrada-Belli, arqueólogo de la Universidad de Tulane y explorador de National Geographic.

“Necesitaremos 100 años para analizar todos [los datos] y comprender realmente lo que estamos viendo”.


Sin embargo, la encuesta ya arrojó datos sorprendentes sobre los patrones de asentamiento, la conectividad interurbana y la militarización en las tierras bajas mayas.

En su apogeo en el período clásico maya (aproximadamente A.D. 250-900), la civilización cubrió un área aproximadamente el doble del tamaño de la Inglaterra medieval, pero estaba mucho más densamente poblada.

“La mayoría de la gente se había sentido cómoda con estimaciones de población de alrededor de 5 millones”, dijo Estrada-Belli, quien dirige un proyecto arqueológico multidisciplinario en Holmul, Guatemala.

“Con esta nueva información, no es irrazonable pensar que había de 10 a 15 millones de personas allí, incluidas muchas que vivían en zonas bajas y pantanosas que muchos de nosotros consideramos inhabitables”.

Prácticamente todas las ciudades mayas estaban conectadas por caminos lo suficientemente anchos como para sugerir que eran objeto de intenso tráfico y se usaban para el comercio y otras formas de interacción regional.

Estas carreteras fueron elevadas para permitir el paso fácil incluso durante las temporadas de lluvia.

En una parte del mundo donde normalmente hay demasiada o muy poca precipitación, el flujo de agua se planificó meticulosamente y se controló a través de canales, diques y embalses.


  Las exploraciones con láser revelaron más de 60,000 estructuras mayas anteriormente desconocidas que formaban parte de una vasta red de ciudades, fortificaciones, granjas y carreteras. Cortesía de Wild Blue Media / National Geographic


Entre los hallazgos más sorprendentes estaba la ubicuidad de muros de defensa, murallas, terrazas y fortalezas.

“La guerra no solo estaba ocurriendo hacia el final de la civilización”, dijo Garrison. “Fue a gran escala y sistemático, y se prolongó durante muchos años”.

La encuesta también reveló miles de hoyos excavados por saqueadores modernos. “Muchos de estos nuevos sitios son nuevos para nosotros; no son nuevos para los saqueadores “, dijo Marianne Hernández, presidenta de la Fundación PACUNAM. La degradación ambiental es otra preocupación.

Guatemala está perdiendo más del 10 por ciento de sus bosques anualmente, y la pérdida de hábitat se ha acelerado a lo largo de su frontera con México a medida que los intrusos se queman y despejan las tierras para la agricultura y los asentamientos humanos.

“Al identificar estos sitios y ayudar a entender quiénes eran estas personas antiguas, esperamos crear conciencia sobre el valor de proteger estos lugares”, dijo Hernández.

La encuesta es la primera fase de la Iniciativa PACUNAM LiDAR, un proyecto de tres años que eventualmente mapeará más de 5,000 millas cuadradas (14,000 kilómetros cuadrados) de las tierras bajas de Guatemala, parte de un sistema de asentamiento precolombino que se extendió hacia el norte hasta el Golfo de Méjico.

“La ambición y el impacto de este proyecto es simplemente increíble”, dijo Kathryn Reese-Taylor, arqueóloga de la Universidad de Calgary y especialista en Maya que no estuvo asociada con la encuesta PACUNAM. “Después de décadas de recorrer los bosques, ningún arqueólogo había tropezado con estos sitios.

Más importante aún, nunca tuvimos la imágen completa que nos brinda este conjunto de datos. Realmente hace retroceder el velo y nos ayuda a ver la civilización como la vieron los antiguos mayas “.



The Forbidden Gospel of Mary Magdalene

Of all the earliest followers of Christ, none has sparked the level of interest generated by one particular woman – the biblical figure known as Mary Magdalene.

Revered as a saint, maligned as a prostitute, imagined as the literal bride of Christ, Mary of Magdala stands apart as an enigmatic individual about whom little is actually known, despite centuries of scholarly scrutiny and wild conjecture.

All that most Western Christians know about her is presented in the New Testament Gospels, and even that information is disputed. But there is some general agreement: She was a faithful disciple of Jesus Christ whom he had delivered from “evil spirits and infirmities.” Along with several other women, she ministered to Christ and witnessed his death on the Cross.

She was there when his body was placed in the tomb, when the stone was rolled away to reveal an empty chamber, when an angel announced that Christ had risen from the dead – and when he made his first post-Resurrection appearance to the living. She brought the news of his Resurrection to the other disciples.

For 1,500 years, Mary Magdalene was portrayed, in art and theology, as a prostitute whose life was transformed by Jesus’ forgiveness. This notion, based on Luke 7:38, was the result of an erroneous sermon preached in 591 by Pope Gregory the Great.

Noted French author Jean-Yves Leloup states that “only in 1969 did the Catholic Church officially repeal Gregory’s labeling of Mary Magdalene as a whore, thereby admitting their error.”

The stain of immorality attached to the figure of Mary Magdalene averted attention away from the significant role she plays in the unfolding of Christ’s teachings. The importance of Mary is especially apparent in Gnostic texts – some among the earliest accounts of Jesus’ ministry – which have been largely suppressed and ignored by Church authorities.

The Gnostic picture of Mary departs – in some ways, dramatically – from the historical and biblical image of perhaps the most significant female follower of Jesus.

The second-century Gospel of Mary was found in the late 19th century by archaeologists but remained largely ignored and untranslated for 50 years. It is the only account named for a woman and offers a different view of Christianity – one that describes an “interior spirituality,” says Karen L. King, author of The Gospel of Mary of Magdala: Jesus and the First Woman Apostle.

In the Mary Magdalene account, “salvation is not something that comes from an external saviour,” says King. “One has to seek salvation within.” Thus, the Magdalene gospel depicts Jesus as a teacher rather than as a saviour who dies to atone for humanity’s sins.

In her introduction in The Complete Gospels, King says:

“…the Gospel of Mary communicates a vision that the world is passing away, not toward a new creation or a new world order, but toward the dissolution of an illusory chaos of suffering, death, and illegitimate domination.

The Saviour has come so that each soul might discover its own true spiritual nature, its ‘root’ in the Good, and return to the place of eternal rest beyond the constraints of time, matter, and false morality.”

Another Gnostic text – the Gospel of Thomas – reveals that women were disciples of Christ. However the New Testament only includes gospels written by men and distinguishes between the women of Christ’s life, and the ‘disciples’ – who are all male.

“You find in the [Gnostic] Gospel of Thomas that six disciples are named: Matthew and Thomas, James and Peter, Mary Magdalene and Salome,” says Prof.

Elaine Pagels, professor of religion at Princeton University, and author of The Gnostic Gospels and Beyond Belief: The Secret Gospel of Thomas.

“Here, explicitly, Mary Magdalene is Jesus’ disciple. In the Gospel of Thomas and also the Gospel of Mary Magdalene, she is seen as an evangelist and a teacher, somebody who is gifted with revelations and teachings from Jesus which are very powerful and which enable her to be a spiritual inspiration to others.”

The Gnostics honoured equally the feminine and masculine aspects of nature, and Prof. Pagels argues Christian Gnostic women enjoyed a far greater degree of social and ecclesiastical equality than their orthodox sisters.

For Jean Yves-Leloup, the founder of the Institute of Other Civilisation Studies and the International College of Therapists, Mary Magdalene is the intimate friend of Jesus and the initiate who transmits his most subtle teachings.

His translation of the Gospel of Mary is presented in his book The Gospel of Mary Magdalene along with a commentary on the text which was discovered in 1896, nearly 50 years before the Gnostic Gospels at Nag Hammadi were found.

The Gospel of Mary can easily be divided into two parts. The first section (7,1-9,24) describes the dialogue between the risen Christ and the disciples. He answers their questions concerning matter and sin.

“Christ teaches that sin is not a problem of moral ignorance so much as a manifestation of imbalance of the soul,” says James Robinson, Professor Emeritus of Religion at Claremont Graduate University in The Nag Hammadi Library in English.

“Christ then encourages the disciples to spread his teachings and warns them against those who teach of spirituality as an external concept rather than as an internal, Gnostic experience,” says Robinson.

After he departs, however, the disciples are grieved and in considerable doubt and consternation. Mary Magdalene comforts them and turns their hearts toward the Good and a consideration of Christ’s words.

The second section of the text (10,1-23; 15,1-19,2) contains a description by Mary of special revelation given to her by Christ. At Peter’s request, she tells the disciples about things that were hidden from them.

The basis for her knowledge is a vision of the Lord and a private dialogue with Him. Unfortunately four pages of the text are missing here so only the beginning and end of Mary’s revelation are available.

This fragment of the gospel describes Mary’s vision of the soul’s ascent beyond the “powers” including the powers of fear. For the Gnostics, these “powers” are the Archons which act as cosmic prison wardens, attempting to prevent souls ascending to the True God.

“It (the soul) has to overcome the powers of fear and the powers that threaten it as it proceeds into a life beyond death,” Prof. Elaine Pagels explains.

After Mary finishes recounting her vision to the disciples, Andrew and then Peter challenge her on two grounds. First of all, Andrew says, these teachings are strange. Secondly, Peter questions, would Christ really have told such things to a woman and kept them from the male disciples.

Levi admonishes Peter for contending with the woman as against their adversaries and acknowledges that Christ loved her more than the other disciples. He entreats them to be ashamed, to put on the “perfect man”, and to go forth and preach as Christ had instructed them to do. They immediately go forth to preach and the text ends.

This confrontation between Mary and Peter is well documented in a number of Gnostic scriptures. Mary exposes the small mindedness and superficiality of Peter and Andrew who find it difficult to comprehend, let alone accept, the deeper spiritual understanding Mary acquired through her personal experience and closer relationship with Christ.

James Robinson observes:

“Indeed Peter and Andrew seem to prefer the very thing against which Christ warned them – a religion based on arbitrary ideas (in this case represented by Peter’s male chauvinism and Andrew’s ignorance).

“And yet many of their ideas have shaped modern Christianity while, paradoxically, Mary Magdalene’s spirituality, which here seems more consistent with the teachings of Christ, is unheard of today.”


Aftershocks Of Iran’s 1953 Coup Still Felt Around The World, 65 Years Later



Sixty five years ago, Iranian military officers backed by U.S. and British intelligence agencies initiated a coup d’etat whose aftershocks can still be felt around the globe.

The coup toppled Iran’s first democratically elected government and its popular prime minister, Mohammad Mossadegh, and is widely credited with fueling the hostility against the West that culminated decades later with the 1979 Islamic Revolution.

But the events that played out over a five-day period from August 15-19 reverberated far beyond Iran’s borders. The coup altered the geopolitical landscape in the Middle East, became a blueprint for a succession of covert U.S. efforts to foster coups and destabilize governments in the ’50s, and provided the Soviet Union with ideological ammunition during the Cold War.

The theory, disputed by some, was that the CIA and Britain’s MI6 masterminded the coup to maintain control over Iranian oil and to prevent Tehran from falling under Soviet influence after World War II.

Mossadegh played a prominent role in Iran’s 1951 move to nationalize its oil industry, which had long been controlled by Britain. The decision led to a worldwide boycott of Iranian oil intended to rein in Mossadegh’s government, but when that failed a secret plan was devised to oust him.

The replacement of Mossadegh with a handpicked prime minister, General Fazlollah Zahedi, opened the way for Iran’s relatively weak shah to gain nearly absolute power within Iran’s constitutional monarchy.

With strong military and economic backing from Washington, Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi would take on the role of autocrat until the Islamic Revolution in 1979.

As for Mossadegh himself, he was arrested and convicted of treason, along with scores of government officials, after the coup. He served three years in jail before living under house arrest until his death in 1967.

Lingering Coup

Stephen Kinzer, the author of “All The Shah’s Men: An American Coup And The Roots of Middle East Terror,” sees the coup as a short-term victory for Washington. But in the long-term, he says, Washington’s intervention in Iran would prove detrimental to its standing in Iran.

Mossadegh was named "Time" magazine's Person of the Year in 1953.

Mossadegh was named “Time” magazine’s Person of the Year in 1953.

“From the perspective of history, the coup was not successful for the United States,” Kinzer says. “The 1979 revolution was a long-term effect of the increasing repression from the shah, who came to power as a result of the coup. That Islamic Revolution brought to power a fanatically anti-American regime that has spent more than 30 years working to undermine American interests all over the world.”

Sixty years on, the coup continues to loom large in Iran’s national psyche and remains a thorn in the country’s relations with the West.

Mark Gasiorowski, author of “Mohammad Mosaddeq And The 1953 Coup In Iran,” says the removal of Mossadegh paved the way for two political trends — radical Islamists led by Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini and radical leftists in the form of the militant Mujahedin-e Khalq — to gain ground in the decades after the coup.

“What the coup did was to take out the moderate, secular, element of Iranian politics and enabled radical Islamists and radical leftists to emerge as key opposition factions in place of it [in the 1960s and ’70s],” Gasiorowski says. “The coup had this big impact of essentially eliminating this pro-democracy faction and that had a very important impact on Iranian politics in the intervening years.”

Regional Repurcussions

Gasiorowksi, a professor of political science at Tulane University in New Orleans, says that to many in Iran the coup proved Washington’s duplicity. The United States, which portrayed itself as the guardian of freedom, was seen as resorting to nefarious means to get rid of a democratically elected government to suit its own strategic interests.

Gasiorowski says the ’53 coup had major regional repercussions as well. He says Iran became a key part of the U.S. strategy of containing the Soviet Union in the region, thereby further underpinning the Middle East as a key battleground of the Cold War.

Had the Iran operation not succeeded, the idea of covert operations that became such an integral part of American foreign policy during the 1950s and beyond might not have seemed so appealing.
Author Stephen Kinzer

“The coup really reinforced the Cold War polarization of the region,” he says. “Of course, that’s the reason the United States did it. They did because they were afraid of communist influence in Iran, and they wanted to make Iran, along with Turkey and Pakistan, into a battleship to oppose the Soviet Union.”

In response, the Soviet Union escalated its own activities in the region, providing aid and arms to governments in Egypt, Syria, Iraq, Libya, and a host of other states in the Middle East and North Africa.

Kinzer, an award-winning journalist who teaches at Boston University, says the Iranian coup was a milestone for the upstart CIA, which was established in 1947. He says the 1953 coup, which was the agency’s first major successful overthrow of a foreign government, became a template for the future.

“Had the Iran operation not succeeded, the idea of covert operations that became such an integral part of American foreign policy during the 1950s and beyond might not have seemed so appealing,” he says.

Following the 1953 coup in Iran, the CIA orchestrated the successful Guatemalan coup one year later, failed to oust Syria’s president in 1957; and suffered a black eye backing the unsuccessful military invasion of Cuba in 1961.

For decades, the United States denied playing any part in the Iranian coup. But that position ended in 2009 when President Barack Obama acknowledged Washington’s role.

In Britain, meanwhile, the government-funded BBC provided details in 2011 of how it broadcast anti-Mossadegh programs to undermine his government.

Secret files and memoirs of CIA operatives show that the CIA played a pivotal role in initiating and planning Operation Ajax, as the covert operation to oust Mossadegh was called.


Los 6 carteles que gobiernan América y el mundo



Los estadounidenses han sido programados para luchar entre ellos a lo largo de líneas políticas partidarias, siempre señalando con el dedo al otro lado del falso paradigma de izquierda a derecha.

Dividir y vencer es la táctica amplia que se usa para evitar que la gente reconozca, se concentre y apunte a los verdaderos agentes diabólicos en nuestro mundo que tienen verdadero poder sobre todos nosotros a la vez.

No somos gobernados por republicanos o demócratas, sino por las manos no tan ocultas de las instituciones que han consolidado una enorme cantidad de poder.

Nuestro mundo está profundamente marcado por estos cárteles, e impactan cada área de nuestras vidas, maniobrando constantemente para hacerlos más y más dependientes de ellos para nuestras necesidades.


En resumen, estas son las organizaciones que nos gobiernan. Estas son las grandes fuerzas en nuestro mundo que impiden el cambio positivo y aseguran que continuamente caigamos en la tiranía y la autodestrucción.

1. El cartel de la banca internacional

La élite financiera geopolítica se ha estado organizando durante siglos para consolidar los mecanismos de la riqueza en manos de unos pocos. Los Rothschild son la cara popular de este cártel, pero la corrupción bancaria y financiera va mucho más allá de su influencia.

“Los pocos que entienden el sistema, o estarán tan interesados ​​en sus ganancias o tan dependientes de sus favores, que no habrá oposición de esa clase”. – Hermanos Rothschild de Londres, 1863

Los bancos se encuentran en una posición de poder única en nuestro mundo y pueden generar ganancias extraordinarias sin producir nada en realidad.

A través de la emisión de dinero y crédito, pueden controlar la cantidad de dinero disponible para la economía y crear auges y quiebras económicas, apoderándose de títulos de tierras, viviendas, negocios y propiedades.

Tienen una influencia extraordinaria sobre el gobierno por su papel como financistas de todo, desde las obras públicas hasta la guerra, y disfrutan de privilegios y ventajas pecuniarias extraordinarias.



Combine esto con la nueva influencia de organizaciones supranacionales como el Banco de Pagos Internacionales y el Banco Mundial, y se dará cuenta de que el mundo está en la cúspide de caer en la trampa más grande de todos los tiempos.

El cartel bancario es la principal fuente de guerra, desestabilización y destrucción de grado militar en nuestro mundo de hoy.

2. El establecimiento médico

La salud humana ha sido secuestrada por el establecimiento médico que obliga a las personas a un programa extraordinariamente costoso de dependencia de compañías de seguros, compañías farmacéuticas y otros proveedores de servicios de salud.

Curiosamente, la industria médica también es una causa importante de muerte prematura para los estadounidenses, ya que la mala práctica, la sobredosis de medicamentos, los procedimientos fallidos y la atención deficiente del paciente contribuyen a estas estadísticas.

Los errores médicos por sí solos son la tercera causa principal de muerte en los EE. UU. Además, el gobierno sirve deliberadamente a estos intereses corporativos limitando y previniendo la información y el acceso a servicios y modalidades de curación que pueden producir resultados positivos sin depender de hospitales y médicos.

Además, este cártel contribuye a sabiendas a la miseria humana bombeando drogas mortales como los opioides en nuestro mundo, conspirando para conseguir que la mayor cantidad de gente sea lo más adicta posible para obtener mayores ganancias.

3. La industria energética

La violación del planeta por la energía de los combustibles fósiles es algo que ha estado ocurriendo durante décadas, pero finalmente está comenzando a crear un retroceso sustancial ya que la destrucción del medioambiente está demostrando ser algo que no puede ser ignorado por más tiempo.

La industria nuclear se contenta con continuar la búsqueda de la energía nuclear incluso frente a catástrofes como Fukushima que demuestran que la energía nuclear simplemente no se puede contener y es una amenaza para toda la vida en el planeta tierra.

Estamos presenciando un gran crecimiento en los sectores de la energía renovable, pero la industria de la energía tradicional tiene una larga historia de interferir con el lanzamiento de tecnologías alternativas, incluso yendo tan lejos como para suprimir activamente las tecnologías.

Este cártel ha moldeado nuestro mundo de manera dramática, sobre todo al crear una dependencia casi universal del automóvil como la principal forma de transporte, que ha dado forma tanto a nuestras ciudades como a nuestra mentalidad.

El impulso sin fin por la exploración petrolera está matando a los recursos ambientales más valiosos que nos quedan, pero la influencia del cártel de la energía es tan grande que prácticamente puede comprar naciones enteras, como Ecuador, donde las empresas petroleras extranjeras pueden presionar alguna vez más en el Amazonas.

4. Productores de productos químicos agrícolas

Los gigantes agroquímicos industriales han cambiado por completo la faz de la agricultura en el planeta tierra en los últimos 75 años más o menos.

Las granjas familiares continúan hundiéndose a un ritmo récord, y está claro que el final de compañías como Monsanto es poseer las patentes para todas las semillas de alimentos, gobernando sobre un planeta donde las personas son procesadas por plantar cultivos alimentarios.

Esto es bastante sorprendente, y cuando nos sumamos al hecho de que la biodiversidad de las semillas se está colapsando a nuestro alrededor, pueden pasar solo otros diez años antes de que se realice este juego final.

Además de semilla, estas compañías están contaminando el mundo de maneras increíbles al presionar por el uso excesivo de químicos tóxicos como el glifosato y otros herbicidas que están matando insectos polinizadores, destruyendo el suelo y causando problemas de salud horribles para las personas que viven cerca de las granjas.

5. El complejo industrial de información

Esta institución es la más nueva en nuestro mundo, que consiste en lo que ahora se conoce comúnmente como ‘Big Data’, es decir, las corporaciones y agencias gubernamentales que recopilan puntos de datos sobre todo lo que hay en nuestro mundo y usan esta información estratégicamente para sus intereses.

James Corbett de las observaciones del informe Corbett: “Hace medio siglo, el presidente saliente Dwight D. Eisenhower acuñó el término” complejo militar-industrial “para describir la colusión fascista entre el Pentágono y la floreciente industria de armamentos de Estados Unidos. ”

Pero en nuestros días estamos presenciando el surgimiento de una nueva colusión, una entre el Pentágono y la industria tecnológica que ayudó a sembrar, que está comprometida a librar una guerra encubierta contra personas en todo el mundo. Ahora, en el 21 siglo, es hora de dar un nombre a esta nueva amenaza: el complejo de información industrial “.

El video reciente de Corbett explica el surgimiento de esta poderosa institución en la siguiente presentación.

6. Religión

La religión es importante para la política estadounidense porque la religión es importante para los estadounidenses.

Sin embargo, hay factores en la vida política estadounidense que amplifican el papel de la religión de una manera que no se ve en otros países desarrollados.

Para un país desarrollado, los EE.UU. es extraordinariamente alto en religión. Así, el 65 por ciento de los estadounidenses dice que la religión es importante en su vida cotidiana en comparación con sólo el 17 por ciento de los suecos, el 19 por ciento de los daneses y el 24 por ciento de los japoneses.

 Por qué Estados Unidos es más religioso que Europa

Hay varias razones probables por las que los estadounidenses dicen que son mucho más religiosos que los europeos.

Uno puede ser que exageran su propia religiosidad de la misma manera que reclaman aproximadamente el doble de las tasas de asistencia en comparación con las personas que realmente se presentan en la iglesia.

También hay una gran población de inmigrantes, muchos de los cuales provienen de países pobres y comparativamente religiosos.

Los grupos de inmigrantes que están lingüísticamente aislados pueden seguir siendo bastante religiosos, incluso si la sociedad en general se vuelve cada vez más secular.

La vida es más difícil en los EE. UU. Que en Europa por varias medidas, aunque Europa se encuentra actualmente en un declive económico.

Los problemas aquí van desde problemas de salud y una menor esperanza de vida hasta mayores índices de criminalidad y una relativa falta de participación en la comunidad.4 Todos estos problemas están relacionados con la desigualdad, con un abismo entre las condiciones de vida de ricos y pobres.

Esta brecha se ha ampliado en las últimas décadas y revela agujeros en las redes de seguridad social en relación con Europa.

De modo que los estadounidenses se sienten mucho menos seguros económicamente y en relación con su salud y bienestar de lo que predeciría la riqueza general del país en términos de PIB per cápita. Esta inseguridad existencial proporciona un terreno fértil para la religión.

Los historiadores son aficionados a atribuir la religiosidad estadounidense a factores históricos como los fundadores puritanos. Sin embargo, la historia cuenta poco en estos asuntos dado que prácticamente todos los países tienen un pasado devoto, específicamente los países seculares de Europa.

Por qué se enfatiza la religión en la política estadounidense

La religión influye en la política estadounidense en un grado no visto en otros países desarrollados.

A pesar del cortafuego constitucional entre la iglesia y el estado, los políticos nacionales casi nunca pronuncia un discurso importante sin invocar la religión.

El presidente siempre le pide a Dios que bendiga a Estados Unidos, enviando sus oraciones a las víctimas de los desastres, recibiendo a los líderes religiosos y ensalzando los valores religiosos.

Tal defensa de la religión es desconocida en Europa, pero eso puede deberse a que la mayoría ya no es religiosa y porque los miembros votantes de la población nativa (a diferencia de los inmigrantes) no son muy devotos.

En Estados Unidos, la religión es mucho más parte de la vida pública, sea lo que fuere lo que dice la Constitución. Hay varias razones para esto. Una es que los cristianos evangélicos bajo la bandera de la mayoría moral hicieron un impulso decidido para influir en los líderes políticos desde la década de 1970 y para inyectar la religión en los debates políticos.

Esta amplia agenda anima a los medios contemporáneos de derecha, incluyendo personalidades de la radio como Rush Limbaugh y canales de televisión como Fox News.

Las propensiones religiosas de los inmigrantes significan que son receptivos al mensaje religioso conservador y pueden ser inducidos a votar a través de las líneas de clase. Al hacerlo, apoyan una agenda que favorece a los ricos y los hace aún más pobres.

Dada esta amenaza de la derecha religiosa, los demócratas sienten presión para enfatizar sus propias credenciales religiosas, o se arriesgan a perder una parte de la población inmigrante más pobre que conforman su circunscripción natural.

Así que la religión está envuelta en la vida política estadounidense y eso magnífica el significado aparente de la religión en la vida cotidiana de las personas. De acuerdo con los ingenios, los conservadores estadounidenses fueron a la guerra en Afganistán para separar la religión de la política en el extranjero mientras se esfuerzan por unir la religión y la política en casa.

Los políticos estadounidenses hablan mucho sobre religión. Sin embargo, no tienen más en común con los teócratas como los talibanes que los estadounidenses comunes con el fervor religioso de los afganos comunes.

Muchas personas pobres en Estados Unidos socavan sus intereses económicos al votar por políticos republicanos que están interesados ​​en seguir concentrando la riqueza en manos de los ricos. Lo hacen, en parte, porque los republicanos apelan a su propensión religiosa.

Esa propensión religiosa se fortalece al aumentar la inseguridad en la vida de los pobres porque las condiciones de vida difíciles se asocian con una mayor religiosidad.

Por lo tanto, cuanto peor se vuelven sus condiciones de vida, es más probable que sigan un patrón de votación contraproducente. Esa parece ser otra gran razón para realmente separar la iglesia y el estado. Pensamientos finales

Hay muy pocos, si acaso, políticos u organizaciones honestos que trabajen seriamente para difundir los beneficios de la industria, la tecnología y la prosperidad de tal manera que realmente elimine los grandes problemas que enfrenta la humanidad como el hambre, la protección del medio ambiente, la libertad de salud y más.

Estos son los carteles que representan las mayores amenazas para nuestro bienestar colectivo y la prosperidad de las generaciones futuras.


The 6 Cartels that Rule America and the World



Americans have been programmed to fight amongst themselves along partisan political lines, always pointing the finger at the other side of the phony left-right paradigm.

Divide and conquer is the broad tactic being used to keep people from recognizing, focusing on, and targeting the truly diabolical agents in our world who hold real power over all of us at once.

We are not ruled by Republicans or Democrats, but rather by the not-so-hidden hands of institutions which have consolidated a tremendous amount of power.

Our world is deeply colored by these cartels, and they impact every area of our lives, constantly maneuvering to make more and more dependent on them for our needs.

In short, these are the organizations which rule over us. These are the great forces in our world which prevent positive change and ensure that we continually slide downward into tyranny and self-destruction.

1. The International Banking Cartel

The geopolitical financial elite have for centuries been organizing to consolidate the mechanisms of wealth into the hands of a very few. The Rothschilds are the popular face of this cartel, but the banking and financial corruption goes far, far beyond their influence.

“The few who understand the system, will either be so interested from its profits or so dependent on its favors, that there will be no opposition from that class.” — Rothschild Brothers of London, 1863

Banks are in a unique position of power in our world, and can generate extraordinary profits without actually producing anything.

Through the issuance of currency and credit, they can control the amount of money available to the economy and create economic booms and busts, seizing titles to land, homes, businesses, and property.

They hold extraordinary influence over government for their role as financiers of everything from public works to war, and enjoy extraordinary pecuniary advantage and privilege.

Combine this with the new influence of supra-national organizations like the Bank of International Settlements and the World Bank, and you realize that the world is on the cusp of falling into the greatest trap of all time.

The banking cartel is the primary source of war, destabilization and military grade destruction in our world today.

2. The Medical Establishment

Human health has been hijacked by the medical establishment which forces people into an extraordinarily expensive program of dependence on insurance companies, pharmaceutical companies, and other health services providers.

Interestingly, the medical industry is also a major cause of premature death for Americans as malpractice, drug overdoses, botched procedures and poor patient care contribute to these statistics. Medical errors alone are the third leading cause of death in the U.S.

Additionally, the government deliberately serves these corporate interests by limiting and preventing information and access to services and healing modalities which may produce positive results without dependence on hospitals and physicians.

Furthermore, this cartel actually contributes knowingly to human misery by pumping deadly drugs like opioids in our world, scheming to get as many people as addicted as possible in order to cut a greater profit.

3. The Energy Industry

The raping of the planet for fossil fuel energy is something that has been going on for decades, but is finally now beginning to create substantial blowback as environmental destruction is proving to be something that cannot be ignored any longer.

The nuclear industry is perfectly content to continue the pursuit of nuclear power even in the face of catastrophes like Fukushima which demonstrate that nuclear energy simply cannot be contained and is a threat to all life on planet earth.

We are witnessing major growth in the sectors of renewable energy, but the traditional energy industry has a long history of interfering with the release of alternative technologies, even going so far as to actively suppress technologies.

This cartel has shaped our world in dramatic ways, most notably by creating near universal dependence on the automobile as the primary form of transportation, which has shaped both our cities and our mindsets.

The never-ending push for oil exploration is killing the most precious environmental resources we have left, but the influence of the energy cartel is so great that it can practically buy entire nations, such as Ecuador, where foreign oil ventures are allowed to press ever further into the Amazon.

4. Agricultural Chemical Producers

The industrial agro chemical giants have completely changed the face of farming on planet earth within the last 75 years or so.

Family farms continue to go under at a record-setting pace, and it is clear that the endgame of companies like Monsanto is to own the patents to all food seed, lording over a planet where people are prosecuted for planting food crops.

This is quite startling, and when couple with the fact that seed biodiversity is collapsing around us, it may only be another ten years before this endgame is realized.

In addition to seed, these companies are polluting the world in incredible ways by pressing for the overuse of toxic chemicals like glyphosate and other herbicides which are killing pollinator insects, destroying the soil and causing horrible health problems for people living near farms.

5. The Information Industrial Complex

This institution is the newest in our world, consisting of what is now commonly referred to as ‘Big Data,’ meaning the corporations and government agencies which collect data points on everything in our world and use this information strategically for their interests.

James Corbett of the Corbett Report remarks:

“Half a century ago, outgoing President Dwight D. Eisenhower coined the term “military-industrial complex” to describe the fascistic collusion between the Pentagon and America’s burgeoning armaments industry.

“But in our day and age we are witnessing the rise of a new collusion, one between the Pentagon and the tech industry that it helped to seed, that is committed to waging a covert war against people the world over. Now, in the 21st century, it is time to give this new threat a name: the information-industrial complex.”

Corbett’s recent video explains the rise of this all powerful institution in the following presentation.

6. Religion

Religion is important for American politics because religion is important for Americans.1 Yet, there are factors in American political life that amplify the role of religion in a way that is not seen in other developed countries.

For a developed country, the U.S. is extraordinarily high on religion. Thus 65 percent of Americans say that religion is important in their daily lives compared to just 17 percent of Swedes, 19 percent of Danes, and 24 percent of Japanese.2

Why America is more religious than Europe
There are several likely reasons why Americans say that they are so much more religious than Europeans. One may be that they exaggerate their own religiosity in the same way that they claim about twice the attendance rates relative to people actually showing up in church.1

There is also a large immigrant population, many of whom hail from countries that are poor and comparatively religious. Immigrant groups that happen to be linguistically isolated may remain quite religious even if the broader society becomes increasingly secular.1

Life is more difficult in the U.S. than in Europe by several measures even though Europe is currently in an economic decline.3 Problems here range from health problems and lower life expectancy, to higher crime rates, and relative lack of involvement in the community.4 All of these problems are bound up with inequality – with a chasm between the living conditions of rich and poor.4 This gap has widened in recent decades and reveals holes in social safety nets relative to Europe.5

So Americans feel far less secure economically, and in relation to their health and well-being than the overall wealth of the country in terms of GDP per capita would predict.4 This existential insecurity provides a fertile ground for religion.1

Historians are fond of attributing American religiosity to historical factors such as the Puritan founders. Yet history counts for little in these matters given that virtually every country has a devout past — specifically the currently secular countries of Europe.

Why religion is emphasized in American politics
Religion influences American politics to a degree not seen in other developed countries. Despite the constitutional firewall between church and state, national politicians hardly ever give a major speech without invoking religion.

The president is forever asking God to bless America, sending his prayers to victims of disasters, hosting religious leaders, and extolling religious values. Such advocacy of religion is unheard of in Europe but that may be because the majority is no longer religious and because voting members of the native population (as distinct from immigrants) are not very devout.

In America, religion is much more a part of public life whatever the constitution says. There are various reasons for this. One is that evangelical Christians under the banner of the Moral Majority made a determined push to influence political leaders since the 1970s and to inject religion into political debates. This broad agenda animates contemporary right-wing media including talk radio personalities such as Rush Limbaugh and TV channels such as Fox News.

The religious propensities of immigrants mean that they are receptive to the conservative religious message and can be induced to vote across class lines. In doing so they support an agenda that favors the wealthy and makes them even poorer.

Given this threat from the religious right, Democrats feel pressure to emphasize their own religious credentials, or risk losing a chunk of the poorer immigrant population who make up their natural constituency.

So religion is embroiled in American political life and that magnifies the apparent significance of religion in people’s everyday lives. According to wits, U.S. conservatives went to war in Afghanistan to separate religion from politics abroad while striving to unite religion and politics at home.

American politicians talk a lot about religion. Yet, they have no more in common with theocrats like the Taliban than ordinary Americans have with the religious fervor of ordinary Afghanis.

Many poor people in America undermine their economic interests by voting for Republican politicians who are interested in further concentrating wealth in the hands of the affluent. They do so, in part, because the Republicans appeal to their religious propensity.

That religious propensity is strengthened by increasing insecurity in the lives of the poor because difficult living conditions are associated with increased religiosity.1 So the worse their living conditions become, the more likely they are to follow a self-defeating voting pattern. That seems like another great reason for really separating church and state.
Final Thoughts

There are very few, if any, honest politicians or organizations working in earnest to spread the benefit of industry, technology and prosperity in such a way that actually eliminates the great problems humanity faces such as hunger, environmental stewardship, health freedom, and more.

These are the cartels which represent the greatest threats to our collective well-being and the prosperity of future generations.
