The Common Sense Show



As the controversy surrounding the $36 reduction in food stamp entitlements continues to build as the event enters its second day, more reports regarding the government spending over $80 million to protect its own buildings from food stamp rioters continues to proliferate in the media.

Although it is possible that the controversy surrounding the food stamp program will not spread beyond the 15 million Americans that are affected, that is not likely. I am convinced that the government’s spending of over $80 million protect its buildings was merely an excuse to pre-position security forces on the street in anticipation about what’s coming, which is full-blown martial law. Food and the distribution of food, will play a central role in the administration and application of that martial law.

An Applicable Aside….

As an aside to the possibility of impending martial law, I appeared last Sunday on Shasta/Redding, CA. KCNR’s “We the People Radio”, and both hosts as well as the producer of the show informed me that the prison located just north of them at Susanville Prison, was making martial law signs. Interestingly, one of the hosts Erin Ryan, is a congressional field representative for her local congressman and as such, is not prone to public fanciful speculation. Also, since I have written about my controversy with the personnel at the Voice of Russia state-sponsored radio program, regarding martial law and what I believe to be the use of Russian soldiers to enforce that martial law, I have received numerous reports from people around the country with sightings of Russian soldiers on American soil. I think it would be an interesting project to begin to catalog and publish sightings of these Russian soldiers. Make no mistake about it, they are here and they are up to no good as the Russian media (VOR) is attempting to discredit any reports about impending martial law and the use of Russian soldiers in an effort to prevent the American public from becoming aware of the significant danger.

Blaine Cooper, well-known for accusing John McCain of treason, is now a disinfo victim of the Voice of Russia.

Blaine Cooper, well-known for accusing John McCain of treason, is now a disinfo victim of the Voice of Russia.

Speaking of the Russian media, and in particular the Voice of Russia, I recently discovered another example of how the VOR is engaged in state-sponsored propaganda activities. Approximately 6 weeks ago, I had the pleasure of interviewing Blaine Cooper and I published the contents of the interview on my website along with a video in which he appropriately confronted Sen. John McCain for being a traitor and telling the senator at a town hall meeting in Prescott, Arizona, that he should immediately resign. The video and Cooper’s accompanying story subsequently went viral. Like myself, Cooper was approached by the Russian propagandists at the VOR and asked for an interview. Mr. Cooper contacted me yesterday and informed me that he was very unhappy with the Russian media because they had inappropriately characterized his interview in much the same fashion that they had done to me. The intent of the Russians was to cast an area of controversy in his confrontation with John McCain as an example of the military versus the government. The VOR inaccurately and inappropriately characterized Mr. Cooper as a former member of the American military. Mr. Cooper makes it clear to everyone that he has never been in the American military.

As I step back and try to wonder why the VOR would attempt to mischaracterize Cooper’s background, the proverbial light came on. Why would Russian soldiers be needed to enforce American domestic martial law? The answer is simple, because the American military cannot not be fully counted on to enforce brutal martial law and fire upon American citizens to the degree needed to enforce compliance. Therefore, the Russian military will be needed. I see the purpose of the Cooper interview on the VOR as an interview designed to promote an artificial division between the American military and the present administration of this government that has been hijacked and controlled by the central bankers of the world.

Mr. Cooper will be appearing on The Common Sense Show in the last half-hour of the Sunday’s program to detail his experience with the Russian media and not surprisingly, his experience matches my experience.

One would have to be blind not to see the proliferation of this material regarding the Russians and the role that they are going to play in our future. How could we not be highly concerned about the presence of Russian soldiers on our soil? And has a reminder, FEMA has reached a bilateral agreement to train thousands of more Russian soldiers on American soil.

When one considers the compilation of the above-mentioned facts, it is extremely clear why Obama is purging the leadership of our military. Can there be any doubt that Obama is following in the footsteps of Stalin as he purged his military’s leadership prior to starving millions of Russians to death. I’m sure that this is a very sensitive comparison for our “friends” over at the state-sponsored, propaganda-filled, Voice of Russia. At this point I would like to issue a warning to all who were invited to appear on the VOR, the Russians will mischaracterize your background and your story to fit their propaganda purposes. And the fact that Russian soldiers will be used to subjugate us, I would encourage all Americans to not make the mistake I did, by appearing on the VOR.

The Past As Prologue

Is it possible that many of us are just misreading signs in our society that the Russians are going to be used to help subjugate the American people in upcoming martial law? Some might argue that it is possible that we are overreacting to a few isolated incidences, but to them I would say history speaks clearly to this fact and the American government has had a long-standing policy of creating legalistic policies designed to use food as a tool of enslavement. And these policies completely parallel past practices of time-honored despots who have done the same thing.

The rest of the article is dedicated to the historical demonstration of using food as a weapon to subjugate the masses as well as to demonstrate how the United States legal code and in various presidential executive orders and have pre-positioned the necessary legal apparatus in this country to impose such draconian policies.

Historical Precedent of Governments Using Food As a Weapon

The two most notable examples of dictators using food as a weapon in order to destroy the free will of their people, comes from the regimes of Stalin and Hitler.

Whoever thought that his philosophies would have ever seen the light of day in America?

Whoever thought that his philosophies would have ever seen the light of day in America?

Josef Stalin engaged in his own Soviet-style Holocaust when, in 1932 and 1933, an estimated six to 20 million people in the Ukraine died from starvation when Stalin implemented his prescription of “hope and change” policies in order to eliminate the Ukrainian’s desire for becoming their own nation-state.

holodomorUpon assuming power, the Stalinist Communist regime rapidly nationalized the food industry and forced all of the region’s farms into collectives. Thus, Stalin’s version of the Holocaust came to fruition in what history has dubbed, the “Holodomor,” in which millions perished in only a two year period when the Soviet government began to exterminate the Ukrainian population by taking control of food and food production. And why would Stalin do such a thing to his own people? The Ukrainians were discussing and publicizing some very dangerous ideas about freedom, liberty and the ability to act on their desire for political autonomy. Americans would be wise to heed this warning, despots hate freedom.

Hitler proclaimed that food could be used as a tool “…to discipline the masses” and he did not hesitate to use the control of food as a type of carrot and stick in which he would reward accomplishment and punish failure as well as to ferment preferential class distinctions in which his armed forces received the largest food ration cards. Skilled workers who were engaged in industries critical to the building of the German war machine, received food ration cards which were slightly less in value. And, finally, the prisoners and the Jews received the lowest valued Nazi food ration cards. Food ration cards were also utilized as incentives to increase industrial production and were also increased in value when productive Nazi workers would be promoted. Food ration cards were diminished in value for the failure to meet Nazi production goals. Hitler’s use of what psychologists refer to as classical conditioning techniques reduced the will of the German population to a pack of Pavlovian dogs who were conditioned to be totally dependent upon the government for their survival. The presence of 50 million Americans on food stamps would certainly make an applicable parallel to Hitler’s practices and the potential for Obama to follow in Hitler’s footsteps.

Most recently, Somalia thug, Farah Aideed, systematically starved his people into submission as a brutal civil war raged in both Darfur and Rwanda where the Islamic regimes sought the annihilation of ‘infidels’ and the use of food was one of the primary weapons designed to force compliance. And of course, Pol Pot, Castro and Mao all used food deprivation to quarantine their political opposition and exact absolute allegiance to their respective dictatorial regimes.

“The Government Would Never Do That Because I Did Not See It On TV”

"The government would never do that to you, or you would have seen it on our network."

“The government would never do that to you, or you would have seen it on our network.”

I venture to say that most individuals who get their “news” from FOX and CNN would hold fast to the belief that the benevolent U.S. government would never use food as a weapon against the American people and if they did, we would certainly all see it on television. Someone should remind these “sheeple” that this is the same U.S. government which has been caught shipping guns and drugs into Mexico under Operation Fast and Furious which has resulted in the deaths of a half dozen U.S. law enforcement officials. Yes, this is the same government which has turned a blind eye to HSBC bank setting up fictitious bank accounts in order to launder money derived from the profits of drug trafficking and running guns and then turning around and sending this money to fund various terrorist organizations. Yes, this is the same banker-hijacked government which permits the Federal Reserve to send trillions of American dollars in order to bail out their own personal banking interests in Europe. Yes, this is the same U.S. government , through the TSA, which commits second degree sexual assault on airline travelers under the guise of protecting Americans from the very terrorists that they are complicit in funding through organizations such as the HSBC bank. Therefore, it is prudent to ask the question, would the United States use food as a tool of governmental policy in order to control its population? Unfortunately, this question has already been asked and answered in the affirmative.

American Government and Their Complicity in Creating a Weaponized Food Policy

It is shocking to discover just how long that the withholding of food as a weapon has been a part of government policy. The use of food by the U.S. government has been a matter of official U.S. governmental covert policy since 1974-1975.

Henry Kissinger is one of the primary enemies of humanity.

Henry Kissinger is one of the primary enemies of humanity.

In December, 1974, National Security Council directed by Henry Kissinger completed a classified study entitled, “National Security Study Memorandum 200: Implications of Worldwide Population Growth for U.S. Security and Overseas Interests.” The study was based upon the unproven claims that population growth in Lesser Developed Countries (LDC) constituted a serious risk to America’s national security.

In November 1975 President Ford, based upon the tenets of NSSM 200 outlined a classified plan to forcibly reduce population growth in LDC countries through birth control, war and famine. Ford’s new national security adviser, Brent Scowcroft, in conjunction with CIA  Director, George H. W. Bush, were tasked with implementing the plan and the secretaries of state, treasury, defense, and agriculture assisted in the implementation of these insane genocidal plans. Today, we also see the manifestation of NSSM 200 through Bill Gates’ eugenics policies of mass sterilizations and vaccinations on the continent of Africa.

NSSM 200 formally raised the question, “Would food be considered to be an instrument of national power? … Is the U.S. prepared to accept food rationing to help people who can’t/won’t control their population growth?” Kissinger has answered these questions when he stated that he was predicting a series of contrived famines, created by mandatory programs and this would make exclusive reliance on birth control programs unnecessary in this modern day application of eugenics in a scheme that would allow Henry to have his cake and eat it too in that the world would finally be rid of the “useless eaters!”

Third world population control, using food as one of the primary weapons, has long been a matter of official covert national policy and a portion of President Obama’s Executive Order (EO 13603), National Defense Resources Preparedness is a continuation of that policy. Only now, the intended targets are not the LDC’s but, instead, the targets are the American people. With one out of six Americans on food stamps, and a reduction of these benefits under way, the policy of using food as a weapon against the American people already has a significant beachhead.

13603With the stroke of his pen, Obama has total and absolute control over all food where his EO 13603 states:

e)  “Food resources” means all commodities and products, (simple, mixed, or compound), or complements to such commodities or products, that are capable of being ingested by either human beings or animals, irrespective of other uses to which such commodities or products may be put, at all stages of processing from the raw commodity to the products thereof in vendible form for human or animal consumption.  “Food resources” also means potable water packaged in commercially marketable containers, all starches, sugars, vegetable and animal or marine fats and oils, seed, cotton, hemp, and flax fiber, but does not mean any such material after it loses its identity as an agricultural commodity or agricultural product.

(f)  “Food resource facilities” means plants, machinery, vehicles (including on farm), and other facilities required for the production, processing, distribution, and storage (including cold storage) of food resources, and for the domestic distribution of farm equipment and fertilizer…”

This unconstitutional EO is particularly disturbing in that it clearly states that the government has control over anything that is “capable of being ingested by either human beings or animals…”  If you thought that you and Fido were going to get through the coming food crisis by storing and consuming dog food, think again.

How will farmers maintain the nation’s food supply when all fertilizer, their farm equipment and all of their vehicles are under the control of this sociopathic President or the next power-hungry President?

The Wide-Ranging Food Control Policies of EO 13603

The term “all food storage facilities” includes your refrigerator, your pantry and even the very food in your cabinets as well as what is on your kitchen table. In short, anywhere you keep food is now under the control of the government and can be seized and redistributed. Those who are storing food, you better find a way to hide at least a portion of your stockpile.

Have you recently been scratching your head in bewilderment as you watch on the news as the Amish have had their farms raided, raw milk producers have been jailed and the kids running lemonade stands have been shut down and ticketed? Now you know why these abuses are being perpetrated by the government in that it represents a mere conditioning process designed to get all U.S. citizens used to the idea that the government owns all food and food production. Welcome to the Hunger Games, American style.

The most clever aspect of this EO is that no Hegelian Dialectic (i.e., false flag event) is needed as a pretense to seize food and imperil survivability. Section 201(b) of the Obama EO clearly states that this EO is enforceable under both emergency and non-emergency conditions.”

Even Ray Charles could see that Obama is setting the table to take his place among Stalin, Hitler, Pol Pot, Castro and Mao as another despot in the long line of tyrannical leaders who would grant themselves the authority to subjugate the masses by using food as a weapon. Americans desperately need to look at history in order to understand what happens every time the people of a government allows the government to control its food supplies and farms. It was with great forethought that the second part of the title of this article reads “…systematic population reduction.”


Food deprivation and gun confiscation go hand in hand as it relates to the subjugation of the American people. This is why the Russian troops are on American soil. This is why they are training with the Department of Homeland Security. A people which permit its government to seize its guns and its food supplies is courting genocide.

gun control worksIn hindsight, I have often wondered how prophetic Obama’s campaign speech was when he promised to fundamentally transform America? This was actually one campaign promise that Obama is trying to keep. NSSM 200 has come full circle, but in this case, it is specifically aimed at the American people.  History shows us that Socialists, Communists, Islamists and Marxists, have all used food and the production of food as a weapon against their own people in order to solidify power and control. Hitler himself said that using food as a weapon was “a beautiful instrument . . . for maneuvering and disciplining the masses.” This is a club that America just joined.

Ask the expert, food control works!

The experts agree, food control works!

Through the National Defense Preparedness Act, Obama is following in the footsteps of Hitler and Stalin. And when considers the role that the domestically trained martial law Russian troops are going to play, we should all be worried, very worried.
