As globalist forces and the international institutions they control openly prepare to plunder humanity’s wealth, Third World dictators and tax-funded “civil society” groups have stepped up their demands for a United Nations tax authority — supposedly to ensure that they all get their “fair share” of the loot from Western taxpayers and businesses.

In brazen defiance of the enumerated powers listed in the U.S. Constitution that all lawmakers swore an oath to uphold, both houses of Congress passed massive “education” bills packed with attacks on real education, local control of schools, student and family privacy, and the rights of parents. Despite false campaign promises by Republicans to rein in the Obama administration, the legislation passed by the GOP majority purports to reauthorize a dizzying array of unconstitutional federal “education” schemes — including draconian tools Obama has lawlessly used to nationalize education through the hugely unpopular Common Core standards. The White House has already indicated that it supports the legislation and will sign it, but critics are up in arms. 

The number of Americans carrying concealed firearms has exploded in recent years, and contrary to the narratives and fearmongering peddled by anti-gun-rights activists, the sky did not fall. In fact, according to the most recent data, not only did the sky not fall, murder rates and violent crime over the same period have plunged dramatically — demolishing the claims of gun-control proponents, while bolstering the pragmatic case for even broader proliferation of public firearms ownership.

Among other major concerns, leaked documents about the “Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership” (TTIP) pseudo-free trade regime between the Obama administration and the European Union revealed a brazen assault on self-government. As knowledge of the contents of the TTIP scheme is becoming known, opposition to it on both sides of the Atlantic is spreading like wildfire. Some officials in Europe are using the remaining vestiges of self-governance to fight back against the Big Business and Big Government attacks on the rights of their constituents — by trying to “opt out” of the scheme entirely.

The State of Texas is setting up a gold-backed bank that will allow depositors to bypass the controversial Federal Reserve System and its fiat currency in banking and commerce, according to the state representative who authored the recently enacted law. 

Under the guise of battling the Islamic State and jihadists on the Internet, the European Union’s self-styled “police” force, dubbed “Europol,” is launching a new bureaucracy to supposedly combat “online propaganda” and “extremism” with censorship. The so-called EU “Internet Referral Unit” (IRU) will be charged with monitoring the World Wide Web, taking down and flagging “extremist” material, providing information and analysis to EU member governments, and looking forward to the future. While details of the unit remain hazy, critics are expressing concerns — both about the EU usurpation of the awesome power to unilaterally censor the Internet, and the constantly changing definition of “extremism” to cover increasingly broad swaths of the population.

As part of what experts call a war on tax competition and low taxes, a coalition of high-tax governments from around the world is working to erect a radical new planetary taxation regime that would crush what remains of financial privacy and national sovereignty while seriously harming the global economy. The controversial plot, led by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and the G-20 group of governments and dictators, is already encountering opposition from lawmakers, industry, and liberty-minded non-profit organizations. However, with the Obama Treasury Department and other key players apparently already on board with the anti-tax-competition scheming, opponents are warning that Congress must get involved if the plan is to be stopped. Some critics say it is time to end U.S. funding for the “destructive” OECD, too.

According to recently published official documents, a scandal-plagued U.K. government snooping unit bombastically styling itself the “Joint Threat Research Intelligence Group” (JTRIG) has been using “behavioral science,” social-media trolls, and online propaganda to manipulate public opinion and destroy critics at home and abroad. 

Obama’s Education Secretary Arne Duncan is pushing a plan to create government boarding schools because, he claims, there are just certain children that government should “have” 24 hours a day, seven days a week. He also wants to turn all other schools into “community centers.” In reality, he wants more time to indoctrinate American children, as his own remarks make clear.

Offering yet another illustration of the true agenda behind what the United Nations mischaracterizes as “human rights,” UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon claimed the polarizing U.S. Supreme Court ruling purporting to redefine marriage for all 50 states was a “great step forward for human rights in the United States.”
