A Dog Is Re-Elected Mayor for a Third Term, Proving Politicians Are Useless

This makes me wonder if the presidency of the U.S. was not simply an unfortunate dinosaur inherited from the U.K. Is it really necessary for peasants to have kings? Surely we could significantly reduce a huge military budget by eliminating the notion of an aristocracy whose greedy ambitions deserve to be aggressively protected or promoted abroad… oil, bananas, gold, diamonds, levis. Most dogs and peasants would not call for war – only bankers and human politicians in their pay do that.

By Carey Wedler

As millions of Americans struggle to decide whether to elect a volatile narcissist or a calculated warmongering criminal as their next leader, one Minnesota town is doing politics right — they just re-elected a dog to his third term as mayor.

Duke, a nine-year-old Great Pyrenees, was first elected mayor of Cormorant, Minnesota in 2014. The first time he won, it was by accident. The small town of just over 1,000 people held an election in which residents could pay $1 to vote. Duke won the race with twelve write-in votes and was treated to an official inauguration.

The town’s voters were evidently happy with the 2014 fluke. Duke has been re-elected twice, most recently at the end of August.

His main role has been to promote a sense of community in the township. He was recently featured in a series of billboards promoting Cormorant.

“I don’t know who would run against him, because he’s done such great things for the community,” Karen Nelson, a resident of Cormorant told local ABC affiliate WDAY, before the election.

“Everybody voted for Duke, except for one vote for his girlfriend, Lassie,” Duke’s owner David Rick said after Duke won.

Though Duke’s re-election is particularly comical in an election year rife with unpopular candidates and marred by animosity, derision, and deceit, the town’s decision to elect and keep a dog in office has profound implications…

A cat named Stubbs currently presides over Talkeetna, Alaska. April the cow served as mayor of Eastsound, Washington from 2011 to 2012. A beer-drinking goat named Clay Henry III served as mayor of Lajitas, Texas until 1992. “Best mayor we ever had,” Davis Odom, a local historian, said. Henry III was succeeded by two more goat mayors. As the Wall Street Journal detailed:

“In Rabbit Hash, Ky., a Border Collie named Lucy Lou defeated 10 dogs, a cat, a possum, a jackass and even one human to become the town’s third animal mayor—all dogs—since 1998, says Bobbi Kayser, the current mayor’s owner.”

If individuals can govern themselves at the local level, who’s to say they wouldn’t survive without a leader at the top of the political hierarchy? People across the country are already taking it upon themselves to better their communities without the help of government and their ‘leaders.’ Between using apps that distribute food to the homeless, establishing community gardens and wifi, and taking it upon themselves to pick up their governments’ slack, Americans are learning to rely on themselves rather than their leaders, proving that without government, people make the world go ‘round.

And then there’s the “annointed/appointed” aspect of our national elections.

Former U.S. Air Force Officer Warns of Atmospheric Spraying (Geoengineering) and the Coming Collapse

The following was written by by Col. Randall Smith, Ph.D., Commander, NECN, contributing writer for geoengineeringwatch.org:

To a very great extent, America is fighting several wars – some on foreign soil, one on our own. Aside from disrupting or eliminating the flow of items key to survival (clean water, nourishment, sanitary living conditions, etc.), governments (federal and state) are executing plans for complete disruption of our usual means of communication. This includes telephony in all of its forms (land-lines, cellular, VOiP) and the internet. You are already acutely aware of the “blackout” of the major news organizations, all of which are owned and controlled by major corporations or “banksters”.

I am a former USAF electronics/communications officer and a licensed amateur radio operator. Several years ago, as I began to learn more of what at the time seemed to be literally unbelievable, I thought about the need for an emergency communications network that would reach beyond our shores and borders and to which every American could have access for a nominal cost in equipment and without a license from the now DHS dominated Federal Communications Commission. Several colleagues across the United States are attempting to do the same thing at the state level. For example, in my own state, it is fellow Oath Keepers who have stepped forward to assist in this undertaking. In other states, it is their militias who have accepted this important responsibility. Though I wish I could report that all states have in place an emergency communications network, for various reasons, I cannot. Some of those reasons include lethargy, fear, the infamous “somebody else will do it” syndrome, and religious precepts, among others.

My first active duty assignment was at Vandenberg AFB, California with the First Strategic Aerospace Division. As a young “shave-tail” from the mid-west, I soon came to love California and many of the people I met while stationed there. It has been painful for me to follow the drought situation that affects so many people is so many different ways. It has been equally painful to come to understand the reasons behind that drought…

If you are deluding yourself that writing letters to these “elected representatives” will, in any way, make a difference, please stop and apply your thinking, actions and words in more productive approaches. As a colleague once expressed it, “We are playing baseball; they are playing football”. The effect, then, is that there is, in reality, no longer a “Republican” or a “Democratic” party. There is one party, and it is not accountable to the people. It operates entirely in concert with the stated goals of U.N. “Agenda 21” (or 25 or 30) and the illuminati’s fundamental tenets which include a one-world government and religion (a/k/a “The New World Order”), and massive depopulation. Their fundamental “commandments” are inscribed on the vertical stone tablets placed in Georgia. Their goal calls for a world population that does not exceed 500,000,000 people. In order to achieve that goal, a reduction will be required in the current world population on the order of six billion human beings. The beginning point for this process of depopulation is the United States, followed quickly by Canada and Mexico to create the NWO’s “North American Command Center”. Hence, the observations of foreign military personnel at or near several of our military bases. Those foreign troops are not limited to Russian soldiers. They include U.N. “Peace Keeping” troops from several nations as well as military mercenaries (e.g. the “Blackwater Group”) whom the CIA has used for years. These foreign soldiers have been training beside American military personnel in such areas as “riot control”, inmate management and forcibly disarming Americans of weapons. They are here because, to Obama’s chagrin, about 60% of American military personnel have indicated that they would honor their oaths, and not fire on American citizens if ordered to do so. Hence, the “forced retirement” of the largest number of senior military officers in our Nation’s history. It is referred to as Obama’s “litmus test”.

New Canadian PM to Withdraw Canadian Military from US Wars

Aren’t you glad Prime Minister Trudeau kept his campaign promise? Don’t you wish everybody did?

Fresh off of his victory in the Canadian elections, Prime Minister-elect Justin Trudeau has confirmed speaking with President Obama and informing him that he would be going through with a campaign promise to withdraw warplanes from the US-led war against ISIS.

Canada had previously committed CF-18 fighter jets to the war through March 2016, and while it’s unclear the exact date of Trudeau’s end, the suggestion is that it will be before that date. He did, however, say trainers would stay in Iraq, but not the ground troops involved in combat missions.

Trudeau had made ending the combat mission against ISIS a centerpiece of his campaign, and the Conservatives campaigned heavily against him on this point, including campaign videos using clips of ISIS propaganda videos interspersed with Trudeau’s comments.

Analysts see the election as in large measure a referendum on Canadian foreign policy, with outgoing PM Stephen Harper representing a more aggressive Canadian policy, eagerly participating in US-led adventures the world over, while Trudeau favors a return to a more humanitarian focus.

Revelations in recent months that Canadian warplanes were accused of killing dozens of civilians in Iraq, and that the defense ministry had tried to cover those incidents up, likely added to growing opposition to the war, and Trudeau seems to want to make it very clear his promise to end it wasn’t an empty campaign pledge, but a sincere statement of policy.
