Vote N.O.T.A. For President In 2016


N.O.T.A.

What’s It About?
–=–

It seems that no matter how many times or different ways I try to express myself, I have never been able to quite explain why it is that voting is a pointless endeavor, and specifically that the popular vote for president literally doesn’t count. I believe most folks actually think that I am speaking metaphorically, as if I was being ironic or poetic about the fate of the presidential elections and each of our individual ballots. But I wish to be clear here that seriously, the popular vote is worthless. It means absolutely nothing. It counts for diddly-squat. And I mean here that there is no reason or excuse why any decent man or woman in America should be voting in the popular election process.

I’m not exaggerating here… Let’s go to the source:

–=–

“It is important to remember that the president of the United States is not chosen by nation-wide vote. The Electoral College vote totals determine the winner, not the statistical plurality or majority a candidate may have in the nation-wide popular vote totals.”

–National Archives and Records Administration, U.S Electoral College website (Link: http://www.archives.gov/federal-register/electoral-college/faq.html#ecpopulardiffer)

–=–

When the government tells you bold-faced that your vote will not be counted, it seems you should listen. When government tells you that you don’t vote for president in any way, shape, or form, it seems you should ask yourself why billions are spent each year to promote the popular vote, since the president is absolutely not elected by the common national citizenry.

Since this totally open secret of just how the electoral process for president of the United States works seems to be completely out of the perception of most people, I thought I would take up the challenge and make this short documentary about it. And so I give this to you as a gift. It took four full-time weeks to research and put it together (aside from a life-time of research). I would love to see this go viral, but that is up to you. I have not made this merely for your peers in the various movements to watch, but for all of your friends and family suffering from that familiar and seemingly contagious cognitive dissonance. I figure that if you can show them this, as indisputable, verifiable evidence of the biggest lie of all the other government lies they never try or wish to consider, and they suddenly realize they’ve been fooled their whole lives into voting for presidents when clearly the commonalty has nothing to do with that election, then perhaps they may start to be curious about some other government lies and laws and institutions that cause them to act like complete fools.

Perhaps they may finally question their sense of patriotism, and finally get the clue that it is the private “People” of the several States (as the posterity of legitimate, landholding heirs) that vote for president through the Electoral College, not the national slaves-citizens of the district. All elections of course are State elections, be it for the House, the Senate, or the President. The popular (national) vote means nothing, being just for show, a stop for the plebes on the monopoly board every 2-4 years that somehow makes the subjects feel better about having rulers.

But most importantly, this film is the ultimate wake-up call. It will surprise most people, even my readers. It will shock anyone that has gone through the motions in the past and is about to go through them this year with the Trump vs. Hillary contest that is no contest at all, merely a false choice – for to vote for either candidate is pointless and only serves to legitimize the Electoral Process. The more the common people pole (vote) their popular opinion and express their illiteracy towards the election process by giving away their choice to vote “no” (N.O.T.A.) and instead voting “yes” for either candidate (as there is no place to vote “NO” to any and every candidate), then the popular vote continues to justify and ratify the Electoral College.

But hey, I’ll let NOTA tell you in his own words…

Please help to spread this to all the websites and radio stations and hosts, and ask them why they are promoting the popular vote when it simply isn’t used? I’m happy to interview or debate, and share this epitome of waking up. Repost and share to all. Don’t argue, just tell them to prove it wrong… or explain why government tells us plainly that our vote is worthless except to keep them in power through control of political parties and thus the electoral process.

Now… back to that book…

How Elections Really Work


 

The presidential debates were on last night at a freinds and somehow I was compelled to listen to the disingenuous debauchery. Basically, eight or so bullshit artists stood in what was no debate at all. For a debate would have purposefully caused each candidate to pick a side and explain and defend that side whether they liked it or not or agreed with that side or not. That’s debate. But all this turned out to be was a god-building exercise designed to promote a cult of droll personality and promote the mythos of American dreamism.

My friend’s father was visiting, and naturally he asked me half way through who I would vote for, fully caught up in the hopium of a new figurehead. Now imagine how many thoughts raced through my mind in that second or two before I answered. With respect, I said its not my government, its theirs. We don’t vote for president. It’s all a lie. It’s us against them.

And just as I’d expect, a silent, cognitive dissonance set in and we continued to watch.

Same question a few minutes later…

Same honest, factual answer.

And the logical fallacy of a retort:

“But we have to have a president!”

“We have to vote for somebody!”

I explained as I always do trying to live and speak every day in Reality that we do not elect the president, the electors do, and that our franchised “vote” is more like a pole, a survey of public opinion, used merely in a popularity contest between two predetermined blood-relatives to appease the multitude of illiterate subjects.

And it works every time, every four years. Seems impossible that such happenstance, pomp, money, and circumstance could be involved in something that is so false and deceptive. I get it. But this doesn’t make it any less the Reality.

In my continuing effort to expose the fraud that is this indirect election of United States president, where voters have absolutely no say in Reality despite the illusional “freedom” of the common people’s ability to participate in popular voting (but not electing), here is an archived page from the federal government telling you how it works.

Pass it on…

Who are the Electors?

What are the qualifications to be an Elector?

The U.S. Constitution contains very few provisions relating to the qualifications of Electors. Article II, section 1, clause 2 provides that no Senator or Representative, or Person holding an Office of Trust or Profit under the United States, shall be appointed an Elector. As a historical matter, the 14th Amendment provides that State officials who have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the United States or given aid and comfort to its enemies are disqualified from serving as Electors. This prohibition relates to the post-Civil War era.

Each state’s Certificates of Ascertainment confirms the names of its appointed electors. A state’s certification of its electors is generally sufficient to establish the qualifications of electors.

Who selects the Electors?

The process for selecting Electors varies throughout the United States. Generally, the political parties nominate Electors at their State party conventions or by a vote of the party’s central committee in each State. Each candidate will have their own unique slate of potential Electors as a result of this part of the selection process.

Electors are often chosen to recognize service and dedication to their political party. They may be State-elected officials, party leaders, or persons who have a personal or political affiliation with the Presidential candidate.

On Election Day, the voters in each State choose the Electors by casting votes for the presidential candidate of their choice. The Electors’ names may or may not appear on the ballot below the name of the candidates running for President, depending on the procedure in each State. The winning candidate in each State—except in Nebraska and Maine, which have proportional distribution of the Electors—is awarded all of the State’s Electors. In Nebraska and Maine, the state winner receives two Electors and the winner of each congressional district receives one Elector. This system permits the Electors from Nebraska and Maine to be awarded to more than one candidate.

Are there restrictions on who the Electors can vote for?

There is no Constitutional provision or Federal law that requires Electors to vote according to the results of the popular vote in their States. Some States, however, require Electors to cast their votes according to the popular vote. These pledges fall into two categoriesElectors bound by State law and those bound by pledges to political parties.

The U.S. Supreme Court has held that the Constitution does not require that Electors be completely free to act as they choose and therefore, political parties may extract pledges from electors to vote for the parties’ nominees. Some State laws provide that so-calledfaithless Electors“; may be subject to fines or may be disqualified for casting an invalid vote and be replaced by a substitute elector. The Supreme Court has not specifically ruled on the question of whether pledges and penalties for failure to vote as pledged may be enforced under the Constitution. No Elector has ever been prosecuted for failing to vote as pledged.

Today, it is rare for Electors to disregard the popular vote by casting their electoral vote for someone other than their party’s candidate. Electors generally hold a leadership position in their party or were chosen to recognize years of loyal service to the party. Throughout our history as a nation, more than 99 percent of Electors have voted as pledged.

Have you ever asked yourself just what is the true purpose of these totally private associations (corporations) called political parties? Ever wonder why they are so powerful and why every president is one or the other main parties?

Legal, organized crime.

And the worst part is that they convince the common people, who have no right to elect, to join these criminal associations and participate in the legalized crime. They are even called “organizers.”

But let us be clear… the best way to control a multitude of people is to cause them to feel guilty about who they pick for their leader, as if they really have a choice, and thus to limit their responses to the mere waiting for the chance to do it all over again, to believe the illusion of voting the next ringer in and then waiting yet again to remedy their feigned choice. Controlled opposition. Brilliant.

And so here we are again, an institutionalized bunch of idiots about to vote for something they have no right to actually vote on, except to legitimize the very structure that politically enslaves them. In other words, the millions of denizened, enfranchised “voters” that turn up to the polls to be poled will be doing nothing more than offering the official “consent of the governed.” And for the rest, silence is consent to the majority will. And the majority is a pure idiocracy of uneducated fools.

Govern = to steer, as a ship. To control.

Ment = mind

Mind control.

And this is called the franchise of freedom.

Conspiracy Theory – A State Of Mind


There is a truth so simple, so obvious, and yet so elusive to those who seek it. It is hidden in plain sight. And it it is verifiable if you can walk a straight line without getting sidetracked by conspiracies. This is not to say that conspiracies aren’t happening all around you. On the contrary, this simple truth I speak of actually verifies these plans between two or more people (the definition of conspiracy).

Now, the hardest part about seeing this simple truth is in fact these 100’s of conspiracies that redirect your conscious thought. Yet subconsciously, the truth sits there and waits for logic and reason to pull you towards it. For, like a grove of aspens, all of these “plans between two or more people” are connected and supported by one central root system, and are dependent on this truth for their secrecy and continuity.

So what is this truth… this central root system?

As we seek the source of these conspiracies, we get distracted by the very conspiracies themselves and by the players involved. And I am by no means immune from this never-ending, reproducing fork in the road. We feel that this truth is constantly in front of us, but these conspiracies keep diverging our focus, and our path forks once again. Our frustration mounts, and we either fall by the wayside or keep trudging through.

When we sufficiently uncover the evidence of one plan, deciding that there is still a higher cabal that is guiding the hand of the perpetrators of that plan, certain shock jocks and even other sincere truth-seekers throw us three more conspiracies, often not even realizing that they are doing nothing more than obfuscating the truth, and creating another fork. But for some, this is an intentional effort.

Then someone like Walter Burien comes along and says, “Here it is… here is the truth that you seek”.

But we ask, “Yeah, but what about the Rothschilds?”

And Walter simply says, “Don’t look right, look straight ahead to the source.”

But we ask, “Yeah, but what about chemtrails?”

And again, Walter states, “Don’t look up, don’t get sidetracked, look straight ahead.  Who funds these weather experiments? Look at the source.”

And as we walk for a few steps on that path, we yet again diverge and ask, “Oh, look over here… what about the Federal Reserve?”

And as Walter smiles with a mix of empathy and frustration, he simply says, “No. Don’t look backwards, look straight ahead at the source.”

But the conspiracies flow like fireflies, distracting us from that path. And we say, “Oh my, what about fluoride in the water supply?”

And once again, Walter says, “Don’t look down either. You cannot change this without looking at who funds and allows this to happen. Will you please look straight ahead at the source.”

And we do, and we know who is responsible, and we know who funds this poison in our water with our own taxpayer dollars. But still we get distracted from this simple truth.

And so we say, “Ah… but what about Bilderberg, Bohemian Grove, the CFR, and the Tri-Lateral Commission? Alex Jones says…”

And Walter in anger says, “Why aren’t you listening? Why aren’t you comprehending? Don’t look left, for that is where you are being fooled into looking. These things are just part of the source. Look at the source. It is straight ahead. Follow the path.”

And then every once in a while, not too often, but every once in a blue moon, someone gets it. They still may stray off the path every once in a while, but once the source is comprehended, all other paths eventually lead to the source. It becomes impossible not to see down the straight path, no matter how many curves and side roads we take.

So again, what is this truth? What is the source.

Well, let’s face it. Nothing happens in this country without some branch of the government knowing, approving, and regulating that thing. No conspiracy happens without government and its spy agencies being a part of it, or at least profiting from it. And no person, corporation, or business can operate within this country without the government knowing about it. Since all corporations are indeed government entities, taking direction from and following the rules of the government, no corporation is above government. This includes the banks, the Federal Reserve, investment companies, and the rest. And they all follow the Federal Law that states that all corporations must file a Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR), including the banks, the Federal Reserve, and the rest. There are no exceptions.

If a hybrid bank such as the Federal Reserve was above the government, or above the law, they certainly would not hand in a complete audit of themselves every year to the government, now would they? No. They are incorporated within the United States and under the government. They operate within the laws set by government. They are granted the favor of extreme power over the economy. But this is not total power, for they and their assets can be immediately seized at any time by the government. They are but pathetic, dangerous, but fragile men in expensive suits. They are not powerful without the consent of the people through their consent of the government. This is the truth.

Who sprays these chemtrails? Well, these planes would not be allowed to fly over U.S. airspace without government permission, right? Therefore the truth is that the government not only allows this spraying of our skies, but funds and benefits from this strangest of conspiracies. Simple logical deduction. No other theory is needed, only the knowledge of who these planes must get permission from to fly over U.S. airspace. This is the path of knowledge that can only be obtained by focusing straight ahead. Sure, look into the chemtrail theory, but don’t get sidetracked from the truth. This has to be a government or government approved operation. There is no other option.

Ok, let’s take the Rothschild family. So what. What are you going to do about them? They have oodles of money and investments. So what. One is a Senator. Ok. They own banks. Good for them. Those banks operate within the United States with government permission, under Federal charter or law. The Rothschilds’ are not above the government. Now, they may have their Zionist agents seated deep within our government, and indeed we see not only a fervent support for Israel, but a multitude of duel-Israeli citizens being appointed into that Federal Government. But government is still in charge, and it still runs the show. It is the people in that government that are the problem. They do not represent the people. And everything that happens and all of the conspiracies that take place must happen with government approval.

Yes, yes… there is fluoride in the water. Yes, it is a main ingredient in rat poison. Yes, it is the by-product of the aluminum industry. It calcifies the pineal gland of the brain. And yes, it has a calming effect on the people who ingest it, which is the only reason I can think of to explain why people aren’t charging Washington D.C. in droves, with pitchforks and guns and ropes… and Tazors! But the simple truth is that government must approve its use. It funds and owns stock investment in the companies that produce it. Government approves the dumping of this toxic waste into the water supply to save on the costs of properly disposing of this substance, thus improving its majority stock share value. Simple. Logical. No theory needed.

What is Bohemian Grove? It is where government goes to relax. What is the Council On Foreign Relations? It is a think tank funded by government. What is the Tri-Lateral Commission? A government entity. What is the Bilderberg Group? An obscure think-tank meeting of global government. And since it sometimes meets in the United States, and since the U.S. government officials who attend this meeting against multiple Federal laws are not punished for their actions, one must concede to the truth. Government is in control of these officials, and allows them to attend.

I was on this switchback trail for a number of years, turning over one conspiracy only to reveal three more, and never comprehending this simple truth, until fortune or fate brought me to cross paths with Walter Burien.

Now, the truth is clear. I can look at the Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) and see the vast stock investments, real estate investments, hedge funds of currency from every nation in the world, gold holdings and gold certificates, Special Drawing Rights, and junk backed securities and derivatives. I can see that government owns it all, through stock investment. I can see that through stock investment, government owns the Fortune 500 and other corporations for which it also regulates.

And so here is the truth…

The government as it stands today is in a complete and utter conflict of interest.

Simple. Logical. Provable by the CAFR.

A body which regulates, deregulates, sets the laws for, polices, audits, and then also owns the controlling interest in the corporate business world it is supposed to impartially oversee, is the biggest conflict of interest in the history of such conflicts.

So, the next time you get distracted from the straight path, from the true nature of government ownership and control of every facet of America and the world, just think of the CAFR. And remember that nothing happens in this country without government approval.

If you want to fix the nation and solve most of the worlds problems… replace government and elect non-corporate poor people in jeans and a tee-shirt, with no assets, no stock investments, or any other interest except in that of the people.

Follow the straight path. Go to the source.

Kill the conflict of interest. Save the world!

Don’t Rock The Vote – Boycott It!


The most detrimental psy-op (physiological operation) perpetrated on the American people is this:

  • that they only fight tyranny through peaceful means, and-
  • that they must fight within the constraints of the law – the very laws, in fact, that the tyrannical and corrupt ones we are fighting against legislate, and once passed, work completely outside of and unrestricted by the very laws they set into place.

The truth is that “calling and writing” your congress and senate is useless, as they are bought and paid for by the same elites who have already ruined this country, and assigned the real power of it over to the United Nations.

The reality is, all of your emails take up no space; only virtual space. And they are filed and discarded with the simple ease of the stroke of a key and the click of the mouse.

You must understand that, once elected, the president appoints elites who funded or are funded by other more powerful elites into positions of power. Chief of Staff, Secretaries of Defense, Treasury, Education, and State, Foreign Affairs Officials, Ambassadors, Judges, Tsars, and even the CEO of PBS! Hundreds of appointed officials. When you elect one man as president, you get instead a whole plethora of corrupt men and women who control the country. The few choices you see in elections are the puppets that the men with real power choose for you.

This is why people like me stopped calling, and for that matter voting for our supposedly elected officials (through electronic voting machines which have been proven to be easily hacked, and vote tallies changed easily) – who then appoint unelected elitists into power once they themselves are elected fraudulently.

This is why I cringe at activist groups who don’t understand that the only way to take back what is rightfully the peoples land and property must be by the same actions that it was won by in the first place. When you begin to understand this, then we may actually have a chance to overcome what can only be called true evil.

Now stop voting damn it!

And if you do vote, remember that you are the one that is legitimizing a corrupt system and keeping it in place through your foolish actions with a false sense of freedom and democracy, in what is, according to the Constitution, supposed to be a republic. And quit blaming the people who don’t vote for the problems of this country, for we didn’t cast an uneducated vote on a fraudulent ballot to usher in 4 more years of the same old crap by the best looking or most popular candidate! If you want to vote, go watch American Idol!

I am calling for a boycott of the voting system. This revolutionary form of dissent is the one and only thing that can make illegitimate the elitist agendas that these men in power are forcing upon us all. By voting for Obama or any other Democrats or Republicans (save a very minute select few), you are voting for everyone he puts into power as well, and everyone who funded his campaign – including the banks that received all of that bail-out money that is bankrupting for the third time in history this great country of ours, this time with no way out.

If everyone boycotted the elections and didn’t vote, it would frighten the ruling elite to the extreme. They would then either have to change their ways, or knowing that their time was coming to an end, get out while the getting is good. An elected official, who is brought into power by only 2% of the American people at the voting booth, would indeed have no justification to accept that political position with any modicum of honor, and his actions would be illegitimate in lieu of his lack of support. But if we keep voting for these crooks, they have that justification. And they will continue to strip away our rights and our Constitution, and pass horrendously tyrannical bills like the Patriot Act and the new Health Care Reform bill, which will kill half of our Bill of rights.

So, let me know when a sufficient number of you face reality and are ready to fight for your rights, instead of hiding behind phones, computer screens, and homemade signs in designated free-speech zones.

I once again leave you with historical quotes from past patriots, leaders, elected officials, appointed officials, and dictators:

It is enough that the people know there was an election. The people who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything.” – Joseph Stalin

A man is no less a slave because he is allowed to choose a new master once in a term of years.” – Lysander Spooner

Not as tyrants have we come, but as liberators.” – Adolph Hitler

We will, in fact, be greeted as liberators.” – Dick Cheney

The argument that the two parties should represent opposed ideals and policies, one, perhaps, of the Right and the other of the Left, is a foolish idea acceptable only to doctrinaire and academic thinkers. Instead, the two parties should be almost identical, so that the American people can throw the rascals out at any election without leading to any profound or extensive shifts in policy. Then it should be possible to replace it, every four years if necessary, by the other party, which will be none of these things but will still pursue, with new vigor, approximately the same basic policies.” – Carroll Quigley

The smart way to keep people passive and obedient is to strictly limit the spectrum of acceptable opinion, but allow very lively debate within that spectrum.” – Noam Chomsky

There’s not a dime’s worth of difference between the Democrat and Republican Parties.” – George Wallace – Governor of Alabama and 1968 Republican Presidential candidate

Free election of masters does not abolish the masters or the slaves.” – Herbert Marcuse

Only fools mistake politicians for messiahs.” – Kevin Barrett

Apparently, a democracy is a place where numerous elections are held at great cost without issues and with interchangeable candidates.” – Gore Vidal

The governments of the Western nations, whether monarchical or republican, had passed into the invisible hands of a plutocracy, international in power and grasp. It was, I venture to suggest, this semi-occult power which….pushed the mass of the American people into the cauldron of World War I.” – British military historian Major General J.F.C. Fuller, l941

Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities.” – Voltaire

When fascism comes to America it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross.” – Sinclair Lewis

A tyrant must put on the appearance of uncommon devotion to religion. Subjects are less apprehensive of illegal treatment from a ruler whom they consider god-fearing and pious. On the other hand, they do less easily move against him, believing that he has the gods on his side.” – Aristotle

No protracted war can fail to endanger the freedom of a democratic country.” – Alexis de Tocqueville

No nation can preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare.” – James Madison

Beware the leader who bangs the drums of war in order to whip the citizenry into a patriotic fervor, for patriotism is indeed a double-edged sword. It both emboldens the blood, just as it narrows the mind. And when the drums of war have reached a fever pitch and the blood boils with hate and the mind has closed, the leader will have no need in seizing the rights of the citizenry. Rather, the citizenry, infused with fear and blinded by patriotism, will offer up all of their rights unto the leader and gladly so. How do I know? For this is what I have done. And I am Caesar.” – Julius Caesar

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed — and hence clamorous to be led to safety — by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.” – H. L. Mencken

Terrorism is the best political weapon for nothing drives people harder than a fear of sudden death.” – Adolph Hitler

Naturally the common people don’t want war; neither in Russia, nor in England, nor in America, nor in Germany. That is understood. But after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country.” – Hermann Goerring

The easiest way to gain control of the population is to carry out acts of terror. The public will clamor for such laws if their personal security is threatened.” – Joseph Stalin

The powers in charge keep us in a perpetual state of fear and a continuous stampede of patriotic fervor with the cry of grave national emergency. Always there has been some terrible evil to gobble us up if we did not blindly rally behind it by furnishing the exorbitant sums demanded. Yet, in retrospect, these disasters seem never to have happened, seem never to have been quite real.” – Douglas MacArthur

Powerful dictatorships that make their leaders powerful need to stage wars to get ordinary people to march in lockstep like mindless Nazi robots. That is the road to Greatness.” – Michael Ledeen, Special Advisor to Reagan’s Secretary of State Alexander Haig

Paradoxically, preserving liberty may require the rule of a single leader—a dictator—willing to use those dreaded ‘extraordinary measures, which few know how, or are willing, to employ.’” – Michael Ledeen

We need a common enemy to unite us.” – Condoleezza Rice, 2000

We are on the verge of a global transformation. All we need is the right major crisis and the nations will accept the New World Order.” – David Rockefeller

It means the potential of a weapon of mass destruction and a terrorist, massive, casualty-producing event somewhere in the Western world – it may be in the United States of America – that causes our population to question our own Constitution and to begin to militarize our country in order to avoid a repeat of another mass, casualty-producing event.” – General Tommy Franks 2003

The truth is, there is no Islamic army or terrorist group called Al Qaeda. And any informed intelligence officer knows this.
