The Story of Navy Petty Officer PO2 Mike Monsoor, 28
by The Publisher 3/30/10

The Sailor Pictured below is Navy Petty Officer PO2 (Petty Officer, Second Class) EOD2 (Explosive Ordnance Disposal, Second Class) “MIKE MONSOOR”

April 5th, 1981 ~ September 29th, 2009

Mike Monsoor was awarded “The Congressional Medal Of Honor” last week, for giving his life in Iraq, as he jumped on, and covered with his body, a live hand grenade, saving the lives of a large group of Navy Seals that was passing by!

During Mike Monsoor’s Funeral at Ft. Rosecrans National Cemetery in San Diego , California, the six pallbearers removed the rosewood casket from the hearse, and lined up on each side of Mike Monsoor’s casket, were his family members, friends, fellow sailors, and well-wishers. The column of people continued from the hearse, all the way to the grave site.

What the group didn’t know at the time was that every Navy Seal (45 To Be Exact) that Mike Monsoor saved that day was scattered through-out the column! As the pallbearers carried the rosewood casket down the column of people to the grave side, the column would collapse, formeing a group of people that followed behind. Every time the rosewood casket passed a Navy Seal, he would remove his Gold Trident Pin from his uniform and slap it down hard, causing the Gold Trident Pin to embed itself into the top of the wooden casket!  Then the Navy Seal would step back from the column and salute!

Now for those who don’t know what a Trident Pin is, here is the definition:

After one completes the basic Navy Seals Program which lasts for three weeks, and is followed by Seal Qualification Training, which is 15 more weeks of training necessary to continue improving basic skills and to learn new tactics and techniques, required for an assignment to a Navy Seal platoon. After successful completion, trainees are given their naval enlisted code, and are awarded The Navy Seal Trident Pin.

With this gold pin they are now officially Navy Seals!

It was said that you could hear each of the 45 slaps from across the cemetery! By the time the rosewood casket reached the grave site, it looked as though it had a gold inlay from the 45 Trident Pins that lined the top.

I have posted a blog about Michael Monsoor before on a previous blog, but after having received a forwarded email request from a retired Admiral friend, who is also a former Navy Seal, to recirculate and remind the American people of this American Hero, and his sacrifice for our country, I’ve decided to do another posting.

As Americans we are proud of ALL our men and women in uniform, regardless of which branch of service they serve in.

This young man happened to be a Navy Seal; but every branch has its heroes; and their sacrifices should NEVER be forgotten!

You would think a story like this would have made front page news all across America, but it was virtually ignored!

So since the major News Media ignored this story, why don’t we correct that mistake and pass this information along to all our friends, and by doing so let’s spread the word to all those in our country, who have obviously forgotten… that FREEDOM is not free!!!

Let’s also remind America of the very real danger that our country faces today, that threatens our very sovereignty and our freedom as a nation!

The fact is the very thing these brave men and woman in uniform have given their lives so unselfishly to preserve, our Congress over the years, and many of our presidents, have sought to undermine and destroy; and that is our U.S. Constitution and our national sovereignty.

Why else would a government act so irresponsible as ours has over the years; and especially of late, with these 100’s of billions of dollars that have been spent, over the objections of the American people, on stimulus packages and “fat cat” bailout money?

We are today facing the worst crisis our nation has ever faced, since our War of Independence against Mother England
(between 1775–1783)!

Ever since that time these International Bankers, represented by the Rothschild International Banking Cartel, have sought to gain control over us, and to enslave us; and over the years, despite all the many warnings from our founding fathers, they have succeeded.

This downward spiral that we find ourselves in today has over the years slowly been eroding and diminishing our Constitutional liberties; until today our nation is in serious danger of collapsing both morally and economically, after which our liberty and our U.S. Constitution would be stripped from us forever, in favor of a “New World Order!” Make no mistake, but that is the plan, if certain people in our government today are allowed to have their way.

What we see happening today in our country is the result of a long and continuous stream of irresponsible abuses and malfeasants on the part of our elected officials in Washington DC, that today has ballooned our national debt to over 13.4 Trillion Dollars; and at the same time has reduced the value our U.S. Dollar to less than 4 cents on the dollar, worth of buying power (as of 2005 and certainly it is less today); as compared to its 1913 value of 100 cents on the dollar.

The Rothschilds :

“The few who understand the system, will either be so interested from it’s profits or so dependent upon its favors, that there will be no opposition from that class.” — Rothschild Brothers of London, 1863

“Give me control of a nation’s money and I care not who makes it’s laws” — Mayer Amschel Bauer Rothschild

Do you want to know why our economy is in the shape it is in today; and why you have to struggle from pay check to pay check just to make ends meet? Well you are looking at the answer above.

If you will remember it was in 1913 that the Federal Reserve Act was rushed through to passage, and was signed into law over the Christmas holidays, after most of Congress had already dismissed and had gone home for the holidays; and these is when these private international bankers assumed legal and permanent control over our entire banking system and our monetary policies; the results of which you can see in the graph above.

These concessions that were made by our politicians, have made all American Citizens the collateral for this bankruptcy loan, that was to bail our nation out of a bankruptcy that came about as a result of the Civil War; a bankruptcy that began in 1863, and has continued ever since, that has had to renewed every 70 years since.

In fact all Corporate bankruptcies have to renewed every 70 years, and so here’s the history:

  • 1863 – U.S. was bankrupt coming out of the Civil War + 70 years to next renewal

    President Lincoln had funded the war entirely by issuing war bonds, T-Bills, etc, which essentially put the United States government into bankruptcy in 1863.

    One of the funding schemes used was the so called 1040 Bonds. These bonds were to run not less than 10 years, and no more than 40 years at 7.13% interest.

    To collect the interest on these 1040 Bonds, a form 1040 was used by the government. By 1864, the value of these bonds had dropped to 39 cents on the dollar.

    In 1861, to collect the interest on those 1040 bonds, Congress created the Bureau of Internal Revenue. Do you think that was just a coincidence? Do you think that maybe the interest was never paid and we are still using the form today to collect? Go figure!

    To handle this bankruptcy, the Comptroller of the Treasury was created in 1863.

    What does a Comptroller do? He is charged with certain duties in relation to the fiscal affairs of the government, primarily to examine and audit the accounts of collectors of the public money, to keep records and report the financial situation from time to time. But the term we are concerned with is “Comptroller in Bankruptcy”.

    Comptroller in Bankruptcy
    An officer . . . whose duty it is to receive from the trustee in each bankruptcy his accounts and periodical statements showing the proceedings in the bankruptcy, and also to call the trustee to account for any misfeasance, neglect, or omission in the discharge of his duties.

    So if the government is bankrupt, who is the trustee? This is answered for us by Congressional Record March 17, 1993. P.H1303. The following is from that record:

    Mr. TRAFFICANT asked and was given permission to revise and expand his remarks.
    Mr. TRAFFICANT. Mr. Speaker, we are here now in chapter 11. Members of Congress are official trustees presiding over the greatest reorganization of any bankrupt entity in world history, the U.S. government.

    The United States government is in bankruptcy and Congress are the trustees. It is a legal maxim that a bankrupt is ‘civilly dead’. That means that Congress cannot legally make positive law in bankruptcy, because they have no legal standing. The federal government has been in Chapter 11 bankruptcy from 1863 to today, and sits at the pleasure of the Commander in Chief, waiting to do his bidding.

    14th Amendment 1868. The 14th Amendment was passed while under military rule, and therefore did not need to be properly ratified by the states, because the states were now under the federal government, under martial law, and the states changed their constitutions to reflect that change in order to be readmitted to the union. By the way, that is also why the 16th Amendment for income tax did not need to be properly ratified, since it too was passed by a Congress exercising their military powers. The 14th Amendment applied to ‘citizens’. “Every person born or naturalized in the United States and subject to it’s jurisdiction is a citizen.”

    DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA created 1871. Congress was reconvened under military order in 1861. This status did not change, and in 1871, ten years later, a new federal government was created by incorporation of the District of Columbia. This new corporation was called “United States”. The old Congress ceased to exist in 1861 and the new Congress was reconvened under military rule, which created Washington D.C. in 1871. Even today Congress does not sit by Constitutional positive law, but by mere resolution, which is merely advisory, not compulsory. Resolutions only apply to those who make them, like New Year’s Resolutions. That is why the House and Senate are continually making resolutions. They merely indicate what public policy may be, but they carry no force of law with them, except on themselves and their property. This is the key to military government. Unless government is permanently established by those who have law, there is no state of peace. Therefore we are still under military law.

  • 1933 – This is the first Corporate Bankruptcy renewal + another 70 years to the next one:

    EMERGENCY BANKING ACT March 9, 1933 President Roosevelt called for a special and extraordinary session of Congress in Proclamation 2038. At that session he presented a bill, an Act, to provide for relief in the existing national ’emergency’ in banking and for other purposes.

    In this Act of March 9, 1933, it states in Title 1 Section 1:
    “The actions, regulations, rules, licenses, orders and proclamations heretofore or hereafter taken, promulgated, made, or issued by the President of the United States or the Secretary of the Treasury since March the 4th, 1933, pursuant to the authority conferred by subdivision (b) of Section 5 of the Act of October 6, 1917, as amended, are hereby approved and confirmed.

    This says that any actions, orders or proclamations, made by the President hereafter taken, are hereby approved and confirmed. Congress just wrote a blank check to the President. ANYTHING he wants to do is approved, IN ADVANCE! Do you think we are living under a dictatorship! Is that how the President is acting today, as if everything he does is already approved? It seems so.

    If you went to a law library today and looked up 12 USC (United States Code) Section 95(b), you will find this Act still on the books today!

    But, if you will remember, the Act of 1917 applied to enemies “other than citizens of the United States.” So in 1917 the war powers did not extend to citizens of the United States, and the government did not have authority over us and the Constitution was still valid and upheld. But Roosevelt made an amendment to the 1917 Act, in 1933. In Section 2 of the Act of March 9, 1933 it states:

    “Subdivision (b) of Section 5 of the Act of October 6, 1917 (40 Stat. L. 411), as amended, is hereby amended as follows;
    During time of war or during any other time of national emergency declared by the President, the President may, through any agency that he may designate, or otherwise, investigate, regulate, or prohibit, under such rules and regulations as he may prescribe, by means of licenses or otherwise, any transactions in foreign exchange, transfers of credit between or payments by banking institutions as defined by the President and export, hording, melting, or earmarkings of gold or silver coin or bullion or currency, by any person within the United States or anyplace subject to the jurisdiction thereof.

    By simply including in this amendment “any person within the United States or anyplace subject to the jurisdiction thereof”, citizens of the United States were now included in the definition of ‘enemies of the United States’! As far as any commercial, monetary or business transactions were concerned, United States citizens were no longer any different from any other enemy of the United States.

    To summarize:

    In 1917, due to World War I, Congress passed the Trading With the Enemy Act, and defined the enemy as “other than citizens of the United States”. This Act allowed the government to take control of any and all commercial, monetary or business transactions conducted by enemies within our continental borders. Section 5(b) of this Act gave the President unlimited powers to control the commercial transactions of the defined enemies.

    During the Korean War, there was much publicity over the fact that Congress never declared war and charges were flung back and forth that the war was illegal. The same thing took place in the Viet Nam war and elsewhere. Today the President is still engaging our forces in foreign countries without the consent of Congress. These acts of the President are 100% legal, because as Commander-in-Chief he still has his emergency powers and he does not need the approval of Congress to engage in war. Congress only makes ‘public policy’ as trustees of the bankruptcy.

    The Social Security Act
    (1935) – Did you know that as a United States citizen, under the rules of the UNITED STATES CORPORATION, you have the status of an ‘artificial person’. That’s why your name is always spelled on all government documents in all capital letters.

    And when you contract to be a U.S. citizen (property of the U.S. government), via social security, you are basically co-signing for the debts of the federal government; and you are therefore pledging all your income and assets to helping discharge the bankruptcy!

    Did you hear about the Grace Commission Report?

    The Grace Commission was an investigation requested by former United States President Ronald Reagan, in 1982. The focus of the report was on waste and inefficiency in the US Federal government.

    The Grace Commission Report was presented to Congress in January 1984.

    The report claimed that if its recommendations were followed, $424 billion could be saved in three years, rising to $1.9 trillion per year by the year 2000.

    It estimated that the national debt, without these reforms, would rise to $13 trillion by the year 2000, while with the reforms they projected it would rise to only $2.5 trillion. Congress ignored the commission’s report; and the debt reached $5.8 trillion in the year 2000. The national debt reached 13 trillion after the subprime mortgage crisis in 2008.

    The report also said that one-third of all income taxes is consumed by waste and inefficiency in the federal government, and another one-third escapes collection owing to the underground economy.

    The report went on to day that: “With two thirds of everyone’s personal income taxes wasted or not collected, 100 percent of what is collected is absorbed solely by interest on the federal debt and by federal government contributions to transfer payments.

    In other words, all individual income tax revenues are gone before one nickel is spent on the services [that] taxpayers expect from their government.”

    This report tells us that 100% of all that is collected by the Internal Revenue Service goes into the pockets of the International Banking Cartel, as pure profit for them. I bet you no one ever told you any of this in school; and not has it been reported on the evening newsl!!!

    Also it was in 1933 that FDR confiscated all private ownership of Gold in the United States, and that gold was also used as collateral for our bankruptcy loan, that I am quite sure that these same International Banking Interests have since stolen this gold from our country; and by the way, 70% of the board of directors, who are on the Board of this privately held corporation, and are making decisions for us, without any accountability whatsoever, except to themselves, are in fact foreign nationals.

    Also did you also know that not once since the Federal Reserve Act was passed (in 1913) has the FED ever been audited? Gee, I wonder why?

  • 2003 – Second Corporate Bankruptcy renewal

    Subsequent to the attack of 9/11, under the War Powers Act, and the fact that our President can sign into law through Executive Orders, without Congressional Approval, anything he wants, it was President George W. Bush who stripped us of many of our Constitutional rights, illegally I might add, because all of this is in violation of our organic U.S. Constitution.

    Since then with the economic collapse of 2008, where we saw all these 100’s of Billions of dollars that have gone to bail out the Bankers and Corporate business interest, and by the way much of this money is unaccounted for; and to date, none of it has yet to help improve, nor to stimulate our economy.

    The reason is because it has gone into the pockets of these International Bankers, and probably some of it has gone for bribes and pay offs, to buy votes; and the rest will be loaned bank to the American people (our money mind you) at interest.

    (For more on this look at:

Our country today is being run by some very corrupt and dishonest people, whose objective it is to force us, once our economy finally collapses and we cannot buy and sell anymore, into a “New World Order,” which we who are Christians know in the Bible will become a One World Government, and monetary system, that will ultimately be run by the Antichrist.

These are the times in which we are living in toay; and what I have just described to you as our history, are what our elected officials, these criminals in DC, have done to us; and they are now setting us up for our final fall; while still most of our country is completely ignorant and is fast asleep.

Getting back to my original point, let us not allow the sacrifices of our American heroes to be in vain, owed to our unwillingness of “We the People” of these United States, to take a stand, and to take back our country; to restore our Constitutional Republic; and reestablish the rule of law in our land, which Law is ultimately our U.S. Constitution.

We need a total housecleaning in our government from the top down!!!

So Pray Christians, pray that America wakes up; that we as Christians and as a nation implement 2 Chronicles 7:14; and that God does a miracle and saves our nation; because nothing short of a miracle of God, at this point, will save us!!!
