Angry with Washington, 1 in 4 Americans Open to Secession

Posted September 19, 2014 1:38 pm by PatriotRising

Can you begin to understand now why the Conspiracy regards it essential that the respective state national guards be deployed overseas whenever possible? Hmmm? Ironically, the St. Andrews cross flew across the US southern seceding states heralds back to Scotland!
 
Some 23.9 percent of Americans said they strongly supported or tended to support idea of their state breaking away.

South Carolina Sovereignty Flag
While the South had support all over the Union this was raised over the Alumni Hall at Yale University by Southern sympathizers on 20 January 1861.  This is also claimed that this was an early flag to be the flag flown in South Carolina shortly after her secession on 20th December 1860.

The failed Scottish vote to pull out from the United Kingdom stirred secessionist hopes for some in the United States, where almost a quarter of people are open to their states leaving the union, a new Reuters/Ipsos poll found.

Some 23.9 percent of Americans polled from Aug. 23 through Sept. 16 said they strongly supported or tended to support the idea of their state breaking away, while 53.3 percent of the 8,952 respondents strongly opposed or tended to oppose the notion.

The urge to sever ties with Washington cuts across party lines and regions, though Republicans and residents of rural Western states are generally warmer to the idea than Democrats and Northeasterners, according to the poll.

Anger with President Barack Obama’s handling of issues ranging from healthcare reform to the rise of Islamic State militants drives some of the feeling, with Republican respondents citing dissatisfaction with his administration as coloring their thinking.

But others said long-running Washington gridlock had prompted them to wonder if their states would be better off striking out on their own, a move no U.S. state has tried in the 150 years since the bloody Civil War that led to the end of slavery in the South.

“I don’t think it makes a whole lot of difference anymore which political party is running things. Nothing gets done,” said Roy Gustafson, 61, of Camden, South Carolina, who lives on disability payments. “The state would be better off handling things on its own.”

Scottish unionists won by a wider-than-expected 10-percentage-point margin.

Falling public approval of the Obama administration, attention to the Scottish vote and the success of activists who accuse the U.S. government of overstepping its authority – such as the self-proclaimed militia members who flocked to Nevada’s Bundy ranch earlier this year during a standoff over grazing rights – is driving up interest in secession, experts said.

“It seems to have heated up, especially since the election of President Obama,” said Mordecai Lee, a professor of governmental affairs at the University of Wisconsin at Milwaukee, who has studied secessionist movements.

BREAKING: Governor Defies Obama and Refuses to House Illegals

'Bout time at least one state has taken a step to protect its citizens from the Washington tyranny. Go Iowa!


BREAKING: Governor Defies Obama and Refuses to House Illegals

The opposition against President Obama continues to rise, as more Americans, both in politics and out, are starting to see through the border crisis, recognizing it’s a ploy to help Obama once again break the law, bypass Congress, and implement his agenda.

States at the border are experiencing heavy economic strain as local communities struggle to come up with funds and other resources to support the influx of illegals flooding into the U.S.

While many people think that the immigration crisis only impacts those states that are along the border, recent developments in states like Michigan prove otherwise.

Obama’s plan to orchestrate this invasion of illegals includes transporting these individuals all across the country to be housed in shelters established in communities both large and small. No one is exempt, and no one is safe.

Gov. Terry Branstad of Iowa has decided not to play Obama’s game, refusing to house illegals in his state.

Can Sears Close 2,300 Stores?


(Douglas A. McIntyre)  In a widely publicized note to investors, Gary Balter of Credit Suisse said that it is best that Sears Holdings Corp. (NASDAQ: SHLD) close its Sears and Kmart locations while they, and the inventory they sell, still have value. Sears Holdings operates about 2,350 stories.

In a note, the analyst wrote:
Let’s face facts. Sears is generating negative operating cash flow of between $1 billion and $2 billion [closer to upper end, it looks like] in 2014. Unless it sells off real assets while somehow maintaining the cash flow from those assets, this story is not likely to have a happy ending, and that ending continues to depend on suppliers.

Experts on retail and cash flow wonder how long Sears and Kmart suppliers will ship products to the stores, due to fear they will not be paid. Sears chief Eddie Lampert, who is also a hedge fund manager, set a $400 million loan to the retailer. That is expected to be paid back soon, which is not practical, and it may not be enough to solve Sears’s problems as losses increase.

Closing up to 2,300 stores and laying off what eventually could be 250,000 people would be immensely complex. 

Some stores operate under long-term leases. Others are owned by the company. Management would have to break these arrangements and sell property in places like malls, which have little value. Sears merchandise inventory at the end of last quarter was $6.4 billion, which given the company’s size is very little.

The cost of severance could rise into hundreds of millions of dollars. Without a Chapter 11 filing, Sears would have no chance of cutting this cost. And a bankruptcy judge may insist the retailer cover these expenses ahead of those due to creditors.

Sears Holdings eventually may liquidate itself, but it would involve one of the most complex set of maneuvers in the history of retail, all likely done with a judge looking over management’s shoulder.

Police Investigating Alleged Vote Fraud In Glasgow

Annabelle Bamforth

Officials in Glasgow are investigating ten suspected cases of electoral fraud following the historic Scottish independence referendum on Thursday.

Colin Edgar of the Glasgow city council said that police were called in after ten occurrences of alleged fraud took place.

“We’ve had a number of suggestions over the course of the day that people have turned up at the polling station to vote and they appear to have voted already,” said Edgar. “So what’s happening tonight is we know which boxes those votes went into and we know the numbers on the votes, so the police have asked us to identify those votes, to take them away, keep them for evidence and hand them to them.”

Edgar said that fraud could have taken place because voters are not required to present identification at polling places in UK elections.

 “Somebody turned up to vote, they gave their name, the presiding officer went to cross off their name on their list of voters to give them a ballot paper and found that their name had already been crossed off and a ballot paper already issued to somebody who apparently had the same name,” Edgar said.

“We contacted police straight away. The police asked us if we could recover the ballot papers, which we can because we know which box they’re in and we know the number on the ballot paper.”

Edgar stated that the ballots will be traced and secured before handing them to police. Each ballot contains an individual number, so staff members will be searching through the ballots to find the ten in question. If found, they will be separated from the hundreds of thousands of other ballots.

A spokesman for Police Scotland said the agency “takes the safety and security of the independence referendum extremely seriously and is working with partner agencies including local authorities and the chief counting officer to ensure the integrity of the ballot”.

Proof of US Meddling & PAYING Ukranians $100/daily to 'Revolt'

How our tax money goes to pay for overthrowing other regimes by death. Regimes that are of absolutely no threat to America.

There exist several secret conduits by which Washington can funnel money clandestinely to foment unrest overseas. ESF is the proven method by the CIA, the NED is the congressional vehicle for money transfer for disrupting over country's affairs, and, of course, USAID, lately in the forum discussions. The answer to 'where does the money go' after it leaves the taxpayer's pocket is amongst one or more of those three agencies.



From a longtime trusted subscriber:

"Been meaning to write to you.  My wife is from the former USSR and she talked with her mom the other day.  Evidently a woman from the village where my wife grew up invited their daughter and her husband/family to come live with them in their republic/country outside of Ukraine about a month ago. 

There is no fighting in the woman's village but her daughter lives in  _[censored]_  eastern Ukraine and there had been constant shelling and shooting which has made the daughter very scared/worried for herself and family.

Daughter and her husband/family moved to the mother's and the mother got her son in law a job in a near by city doing construction for $120/month but she let them live in her house for free and help provide them with food, etc..  After a few weeks the husband said they were moving back to Ukraine saying "The American government paid me $100 a day to revolt in Kiev square to oust Yanoukovich, why would I work here for $120/month".  He then proceeded to say that "I've been told that the American's are going to be paying again soon for more protests in Kiev and I would rather go there and get paid to protest than work here and get next to nothing".

It just so happened that a new round of protests and fires started in Kiev this week.  Thought you might like to hear that story."
