Lawyers write the laws that channel all power, authority and wealth to the government. They create confusion so the people can’t understand the law and can’t understand esoteric (hidden) political and “legal” manipulation of the public. So lawyers create socialism and label it democracy. Socialism is a disguised system of stealing the wealth and production of the producers of wealth with spurious laws.

In her latest column, Ann Coulter says she wants to “track you down and drown you” if you are “considering voting for the Libertarian candidate in any Senate election” this November. But if anyone deserves drowning, it’s Coulter for leading shortsighted conservative voters down the path to ruin.
On Sept. 18, 1973, then-Governor Jimmy Carter filed a report with the National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena (NICAP), claiming he and about a dozen others had seen an unidentified flying object outside a Lions Club meeting in Leary, Ga., at about 7:30 p.m. in 1969. The exact date of the alleged sighting is lost to memory.
By filing the report while governor, Carter became the highest-ranking government figure in the U.S. to ever report a UFO sighting.
Yesterday marked the 50th anniversary of Lyndon B. Johnson’s “War on Poverty.” It’s a war that will never be “won” because it is not and was not meant to be. It’s a $22 trillion boondoggle that currently enslaves 100 million Americans (and over its life enslaved many more), making them essentially wards of the state.
Schools across the country continue to deal one way or the other with the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s “Smart Snack” rules — the latest portion of the Michelle Obama-backed Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010.
Some are dealing with it by ditching the plan altogether — and forgoing federal dollars in the process — and going back to serving old and more popular menu items. Others are attempting to comply. But the rules are ridiculous and arbitrary and are doing little to help make kids “healthy.”
A recent poll by Rasmussen found that more than one-third of Americans had no clue which parties control the House and Senate. What a sad commentary that such a basic bit of information — taken for granted by this audience — is lost on an American populace so distracted by bread and circuses.
On Wednesday, President Barack Obama unveiled his strategy for dealing with the Islamic State (aka ISIS or ISIL). He’s going to continue to do what he’s been doing for six years — and just add in some bombs for good measure.
Three years ago, on the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, I posed a series of questions about the official narrative that to this day remain unanswered — and largely unasked — by the propaganda media and the elites walking the halls of power. Let’s revisit them.
Proper levels of acid in the human body are crucial. But not all acid is the same.
Which acid we are referring to is not just kind of important, it’s all-important — like life or death. And doctors pay no attention.
Subject: Safety Deposit Boxes
You wrote not to store valuables in a bank safety deposit box. It would be very helpful if you could give some thoughts on WHERE to put those valuables. I would really appreciate your advice. Thank you!!!
All governments need crisis, no matter how much lip service they give to the idea of “peace.” Crisis is a well-known Machiavellian strategy to gain and solidify political power and persuade public opinion. Crisis provides the stage where governments can control all sides.
Not even a government monopoly can overcome basic economics. Lured by the promise of federal subsidies (read “free” money), school systems across the country went all in on the Michelle Obama pet project National School Lunch Program’s Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act. But it turns out kids don’t want what Obama is peddling.
I began publishing my monthly newsletter The Bob Livingston Letter™ (subscription required) in 1969. The following is an excerpt from the September 1997 issue in which I warned of the looming invasion of Americans’ privacy by the state, the growing surveillance state and the fact that bank deposits are subject to government confiscation, as proven just last year in Cyprus and in subsequent revelations about the globalist banksters’ plans for “bail-ins.”
Government strategy is to invade our privacy and freedom under the pretext of protecting us from terrorism, drug traffickers and all kinds of booger bears. Therefore, as soon as government justifies its powers with legislation, it sends out agents provocateur to make it all appear that anything they do justifies their means.
In a Labor Day speech in Detroit, Vice President Joe Biden decried the nation’s tax code. But it’s absurd for Biden to blast a tax code for which he’s at least partially responsible. And it’s equally absurd for people to believe that a “fairer” tax code that raises taxes on businesses will somehow spur the economy.
When we say we “caught a cold” or we “caught the flu,” we are promoting establishment medicine and huge profits for the industry. All the vaccination and immunization industry is based on a germ theory of disease, which simply says that viruses and bacteria are transferred from one person to another by “germs.” Almost nobody questions this dogma.
Yet if we think about it for a minute, it’s downright foolish. Such foolishness flows to unthinking masses who live by medical establishment propaganda.
“Labor Day” is a misnomer. It is a leisure day ostensibly designed to celebrate the labor movement. Everyone now sees it as a leisure day for barbecue, final dips in the lake or ocean and the last “blowout” of summer.
Whenever a group or class of people is given special “rights” (which aren’t really rights, but privileges), the real natural rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness are turned on their ears and shoved down the memory hole.
No one should be surprised that corporations are taking advantage of provisions in the U.S. tax code that allow them to keep more of their money by moving their operations offshore, as Burger King Worldwide announced it was planning to do when it acquired Tim Hortons. The Founding Fathers recognized something today’s government elites do not, that there is a limit to the onerous level of taxation that can be born.
In his opinion in the landmark McCulloch v. Maryland Supreme Court case that granted Congress “implied powers,” turned the “necessary and proper” clause on its ear and began neutering State sovereignty on behalf of the banksters, Chief Justice John Marshall recognized the destructive nature of taxation.
