War Machine Goes On The Attack

Seeking to head off a potential Rand Paul Presidency and fearing that such might mean an end to perpetual war, the war machine has gone into full attack mode.

It started over the weekend with Texas Governor (and previously Bilderberg-approved) Rick Perry’s op-ed in The Washington Post, in which he warned about the dangers of “isolationism.” He described Paul as “curiously blind” to the growing threats in Iraq.

The use of the term “isolationism” is an old and tired canard the warmongers recycle whenever the American people grow weary of perpetual war and a politician sensing the mood of the electorate comes out and threatens to disengage the U.S. from its constant meddling. Paul has certainly not advocated “isolationism.”

Senator John McCain, who would have the U.S. military engaged in every Mideast country plus half the former Soviet Union if he had his way, piled on, accusing Paul of wanting a “withdrawal to fortress America.” Not to be outdone, former Vice President and longtime Trilateral Commission member Dick Cheney told a luncheon crowd on Monday that “isolationism is crazy.” His daughter, Liz Cheney, declared that Paul “leaves something to be desired in terms of national security policy.”

“I think the general fear on the part of a lot of leaders in the Republican Party is that there’s an isolationist temptation after two big wars, an isolationist temptation in the American electorate,” Elliott Abrams, a senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations who was a deputy national security adviser in the George W. Bush Administration, told Politico. “And I think people are genuinely concerned about it and desirous of trying to stop it before it spreads further.”

It’s not the American people but the neocon establishment that’s “desirous of trying to stop it before it spreads further.” What the American people are “genuinely concerned about” is a desire to end the incoherent foreign policy — advocated by the previously mentioned warmongers as well by the current usurper currently despoiling the people’s house — of arming in one country the very terrorists we are fighting in another. What the American people are “genuinely concerned about” is a foreign policy that considers the interests of Saudi Arabia, Israel and international banksters over the best interests of the United States. What the American people are “genuinely concerned about” is a foreign policy which, in Iraq, pits the U.S. against a supposed ally (Saudi Arabia, which supports and is arming ISIS) and alongside a supposed enemy (Iran, which supports the U.S. puppet regime in Iraq). What the American people are “genuinely concerned about” is a regime that drone strikes innocent civilians around the globe under the guise of fighting a “war on terror” that the current President won’t even acknowledge.

The American people, by and large, have grown sick of war. That’s understandable considering the U.S. has been in a constant state of war since George H.W. Bush double-crossed Saddam Hussein and opened the door to an Iraq invasion of Kuwait in August 1990. It’s been stirring the pot in the region since the CIA dispatched Kermit Roosevelt to orchestrate an Iranian coup on behalf of British oil interests in 1951.

More than 60 years of U.S. interventionism hasn’t made the world more peaceful. The American people are finally realizing that, and that frightens the elites much more than the prospect of another world war.

Not to worry though, Paul has already dutifully donned a yarmulke and genuflected at the Wailing Wall, a rite of passage necessary for any aspiring U.S. Presidential candidate. In fact, Presidential candidates are more likely to visit Israel during the campaign than some States. He’s also cozied up to the banksters, threatened Russia over Ukraine, sidled up to neocon Rupert Murdoch and written a piece for the neocon rag National Review, all steps necessary for a contender.

Besides, Paul’s stated Israel policy would be much better for both Israel and the U.S.

Natural Mosquito Repellant

There are about 150 species of mosquitoes in the United States, and many of them spread disease.

For instance, the Asian tiger mosquito can transmit yellow fever and Dengue fever. The northern house mosquito can transmit West Nile virus.

Mosquitoes are attracted to their prey by carbon dioxide, heat, moisture, scent and sight. Studies have shown that as many as 277 different human-related odors can attract a wide variety of mosquitoes, including the smell made as bacteria break down human sweat into ammonia.

The most common insect repellents in use today contain DEET. Fully one-third of the U.S. population uses repellants containing DEET, which is found in more than 230 products in concentrations up to 100 percent.

But heavy exposure to DEET has been shown to cause memory loss, headache, weakness, fatigue, muscle and joint pain, tremors, and shortness of breath. These symptoms may not be evident until months or even years after exposure. The most severe damage occurs when DEET is used concurrently with other insecticides, such as permethrin, for prolonged and frequent periods of time. There is little information about the short-term, singular and occasional use of DEET. However, frequent and long-term use of DEET, especially in combination with other chemicals or medications, could cause brain deficits in vulnerable populations, particularly children.

According to a Duke University Medical Center study, rats given even small doses of DEET for 60 days had a harder time accomplishing even the easiest tasks. And because DEET is not water-soluble, it doesn’t break down and remains on surfaces when rinsed off the skin.

Natural insect repellants make more sense than poisoning oneself with chemicals recommended for only occasional use.

Lemon eucalyptus oil has been shown to provide more than 95 percent protection from mosquitoes for up to three hours. Cinnamon, citronella and thyme have been shown to be repellant to mosquitoes. What’s more, they’ve also shown to be irritating and toxic to the insects. Cumin, lemongrass and coleus have also proven to be repellant and mosquito irritants.

GOP Shenanigans In Mississippi Senate Race Show There Is Only One Party

The Tea Party — and I’m talking about the grass-roots, unaffiliated local Tea Party groups — is cast by Democrats of all stripes and the mainstream media as irrelevant and dead, and by the Republican establishment as a bunch of nuts who must be crushed.

That’s because the establishment fears it. And there is a reason for the fear. The Tea Party seeks to install Constitutionally minded candidates in office and destroy the status quo. Just look to the Mississippi Senate race for evidence of the depths the establishment will go to in order to retain power.

I have told you before that there is only one party. It’s the government party, and it presents itself as a two-headed hydra with one head calling itself Republican and the other calling itself Democrat. Most people still don’t get it.

The two parties claim to have a differing philosophy, and they engage in a lot of back-and-forth. But that back-and-forth is designed more to keep the people divided and at each other’s throats. Behind the scenes, though, they are working together to remain in power in order to grow government and reward their friends with government largess. In all my years, regardless of which “party” is in power, I have only seen government continue to grow and liberty continue to be lost.

The Mississippi Senate race is showing the elites of both parties are simply psychopaths joined at the hip.

The GOP pulled out all the dirty tricks it could muster to stave off a challenge to the establishment fossil, Thad Cochran, by Tea Party challenger Chris McDaniel.

The American Spectator published a piece last week that breaks down the incestuous relationship among political action committees and Democrat and Republican donors. And a journalist named Charles C. Johnson has been digging into the dirty works of the National Republican Senatorial Committee and its use of racially charged ads and “walking around money” to send black Democrats to polls to vote for Cochran.

Both stories are too deep to cover here and should be read in their entirety, so follow the links in the above paragraph. But here are some highlights:

  • According to Federal Election Commission filings, the Mississippi Conservatives PAC, which the McDaniel camp blames for most of the race-baiting on Cochran’s behalf, received more than 55 percent of its donations from contributors who have either 1) given money directly to prominent Democrats or 2) given to other PACs that contributed directly to Democrats.
  • James Creekmore, an executive of a company called Telapex, which has its own PAC, gave $15,000 to Mississippi Conservatives PAC in the weeks before the primary. Telapex PAC, to which Creekmore gave $37,500 over eight years, gave money to a PAC that distributed money to other PACs that contributed to Democrats like Mark Pryor, Mark Begich, Kay Hagan, Mary Landrieu, Jeanne Shaheen, Mark Udal and Mark Warner.
  • Creekmore donated money to the NRSC, while his Telepax PAC simultaneously was giving money to PACs that contributed $10,000 to Mitch McConnell’s opponent, Alison Lundergan Grimes, and $5,000 to Travis Childers, who will be Thad Cochran’s opponent (if the election is not overturned) in November.
  • There is also a questionable $250,000 loan from Trustmark Bank to Mississippi Conservatives PAC. It looks like it was paid for by donations from former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Facebook executive Sean Parker. Just days after each donated $250,000 to the PAC, it turned around and made a $220,150 payment on the loan. Making the loan exceptionally curious is the fact that both Bloomberg and Parker have donated an enormous sum for gun control causes, and Cochran gets an A+ rating from the National Rifle Association.
  • The racist ads that featured prominent black pastors were apparently paid for by NRSC’s media buyer.
  • Cochran staffers appear to have violated numerous FEC laws regarding the $40,000 in “walking around money” it doled out to get black voters on Cochran’s side.

Do you still think the Tea Party is irrelevant? These shenanigans that reveal the depravity of the elites would have never seen the light of day if not for the tenacity of Tea Party candidates and the work of alternative media to uncover it.

The establishment will never be defeated if the voting public is not made aware of what really goes on in the political system. The Tea Party is shedding more light on the process.

The Immorality Of Paper Money

One of today’s most common economic fallacies is that the soaring stock market is evidence of economic recovery. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Stocks have almost tripled since the 2008 collapse, but that stock growth stems from Federal Reserve money printing (inflation) and near zero interest rates. The Fed’s balance sheet has grown more than fourfold since 2008 — to $4.3 trillion — and was used to prop up the “too big to fails.” That money had to go somewhere.

It has found its way into the stock market because U.S. Treasuries are paying less than the rate of inflation; and corporate bonds, certificates of deposit and other fixed-income products pay even less. This and price inflation (currency devaluation) is fueling the rise, not positive economic growth or common sense.

Stocks are being bought by the banksters and large corporations. Average people aren’t buying them. A study by the Pew Research Center found fewer than half of all Americans (45 percent) own stocks. The number is down from 65 percent in 2002. Individual investors are cashing in their retirement funds just to survive.

Government printing press money distorts economic reality, dilutes morality and is the true source of “income inequality.” Financial speculation rises with the increase in paper money and the general work ethic deteriorates. The something-for-nothing mentality pervades society.

Paper money promotes the “quick buck” syndrome like narcotics peddling and hookers on the streets. Hookers, incidentally, were widespread in the Weimar Republic in Germany in 1923 because the women had to sell their bodies for food for themselves and their families.

In a paper money society, the social order visibly deteriorates. The morality of the stable gold standard gradually changes to the amorality of fiat. Few people see the cause and effect, and the politicians try to legislate human behavior. They always fail, as the system is overrun with jails and prisons.

Fiat promotes an illusory reality where non-substance like financial speculation and gambling replaces the substance of industrial production and long-term value. When consumption surpasses income, as the government and the politicians promote, distorted human emotions replace stable behavior. Social breakdown increases, and real values are forgotten.

Prices of labor and craftsmen escalate beyond all reason when there is never enough money. Service repairmen charge fees like medical doctors.

When labor and supplies are valued in fiat, everything becomes distorted. In the final stages of hyperinflation, there is no anchor to sanity and common sense.

Paper money expands consumption way beyond income. This eventually guarantees debt collapse and social breakdown. The foundation of the household collapses and the middle class is destroyed. Paper money is an illusion because it is non-substance and can be created by the government to infinity. When the people accept numbers on green strips of paper or computer symbols for money, they accept illusion for reality. They accept non-substance for substance. Real money (gold and silver) comes from the earth and human production. It is no illusion.

As paper currencies come to their end, governments greatly step up suppression of the people. They start foreign wars. They attack their own population with high-sounding hypocrisy. Government makes criminals out of honest men–“in the public interest,” of course.

What follows? Default of the United States? Not formally, but by stealth depreciation of the currency (inflation). Will the U.S. world system hold? Yes, as long as world fear factor dominates as a result of superior military power. But that fear factor seems to be slipping as the elites behind the scenes use Russia and China to create a system outside the dollar.

Sober people (there are a few) understand monetary realism — to wit, that fiat implies stealth (slow) default. No payment is ever intended and is impossible even if intended. The main feature or attribute of sovereign debt default is gradualism.The public cannot grasp gradualism even as they are impoverished. The debt propaganda — that the U.S. owes debt — is a cover for the fiat regime. It’s a hoax! How can the U.S. owe a “debt” when it can print money to infinity?

A fiat paper money regime always becomes autocratic or fascist toward the last days of its existence. This is the time when the state makes war on its own people. Most never know it because it is not announced, but hidden in propaganda within such terms as “for the common good.”

An unlimited supply of paper money buys sophisticated arms that create fear and the propaganda to manipulate the people against their personal freedom and best interest. Fiat paper money is tyranny or becomes tyranny. It guarantees criminal government.

Paper money, personal freedom and privacy are incompatible. Paper money centralizes power to the state and diminishes the individual. This is the first cause of all you see happening.  All modern wars are paper money wars. Paper money pays the politicians their lavish profligacy, and they keep their mouths shut about the fiat system.

The only way for true economic growth is by the transfer of services, goods or wealth between people (or businesses) who actually produce something. In other words, if someone provides a service and gets gold or silver (actual wealth) or widgets for compensation, both the service provider and widget maker have benefited and each has something that has bettered his standard of living.

If the one who performed the service uses the widgets to acquire trinkets that help him perform his service, then the service performer has benefited. The trinket maker has also benefited, and he can put the widgets to use. This sort of transfer has worked from the beginning of time, when the farmer took his produce to market, where it was sold or bartered in exchange for wealth, tools, supplies and seeds so he could begin producing food for next year.

But the Fed produces nothing but more paper money, and it takes from the producers. Therefore, its only solution for the collapsing financial system is to steal wealth from the producers of goods and services through taxation and provide more and more fiat money and credit. This can only mean final and complete collapse of the U.S. dollar.

A second and primary concern of the Fed is its control of public perceptions. The Fed must keep the crowd quiet. It positively does not want a panic and run on the banks. The very last thing central banks want is transparency. The vested interest (the paper money crowd) will color the news more and more.

Everyone should be aware of this and move as much as possible out of the dollar. As I told readers of my monthly newsletter, The Bob Livingston Letter in the latest issue, silver is a great buy and hold now! The more downward manipulation the banks do, the more they load up on physical silver and, ironically, the better the suppressed price is for public investors.

If you talk silver with the masses, expect them to scoff. Most people don’t know that silver was the best-performing asset in the world through the silver price highs of 2011.

So what’s wrong? The price is being manipulated down by just eight traders on the COMEX, led by JPMorgan. This is a crooked paper game that cannot last. What they are doing is setting up silver for an explosion in price. This event will reveal the worthlessness of paper money.

The long dry spell because of manipulation in silver has caused extreme underappreciation. Public sentiment is negative to the extreme. “Blood is in the street.”

The only negative is time. No one knows when silver will blast off, so this uncertainty has kept investors from buying. But some of us see this as the perfect opportunity to buy more.

I still like U.S. 90 percent silver coins minted before 1965. They can be purchased in bags of $1,000 face amount or in smaller increments — even individually. (Find a local, reputable coin dealer with a good rating with the Better Business Bureau and a history in the community.) Buy for great price explosion upward as well as for survival coins. As paper money fails, a silver dollar will buy a week’s groceries any time.

How Does One Stop The Government From Stealing Our Retirement?

Sirs,

How does one stop our government from stealing our 401(k)s etc. I’ve worked hard for nearly 40 years hoping to have some kind of at least half decent retirement. Now I’m seeing reports of “bail-ins”? How does one go about stopping this? Need more information.

Regards,

George S.

Dear George,

You are wise to be concerned. I have written about this in the past. I believe there will be a time in the not too distant future that the Federal government will confiscate retirement funds and place them in a government fund. It’s about the only feasible way I can see for the government to prop up the collapsing system. I long ago took the penalty and cashed in my 401(k). I bought gold, silver and some stocks with it and have been rewarded far beyond what I lost in the penalty. As for “bail-ins,” they will affect your bank accounts (see Greece, for example). I recommend keeping cash on hand and leave only enough in the bank to cover your monthly bills. You will also need to invest in a good fireproof safe.

Best wishes,

Bob

Obama’s Fundamental Transformation

“Five days. After decades of broken politics in Washington… we are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America. In five days, you can turn the page on policies that put greed and irresponsibility on Wall Street before the hard work and sacrifice of folks on Main Street. In five days, you can choose policies that invest in our middle class, and create new jobs, and grow this economy, so that everyone has a chance to succeed, not just the CEO, but the secretary and janitor, not just the factory owner, but the men and women on the factory floor.” — Barack Obama, October 2008

Has he succeeded? Let’s see.

His campaign to fundamentally transform the U.S. is in full operation on the border, where his extra-Constitutional action to grant amnesty to young illegals — called Dreamers — has drawn tens of thousands of illegals across the border… along with their Third World diseases. These illegals are now being shipped across America, where they are dumped out to spread their diseases and become drains on society that scarf up what few low-wage jobs there are, and consume social services. Even some of his most ardent supporters now get it.

Obama continues his push for amnesty, which would benefit the large corporations, the unions and the Democrat voter base. His economic policies of profligate Federal Reserve money printing and government spending prop up Wall Street, create bubbles and stifle economic growth. Those same policies, combined with his signature achievement (Obamacare), kill jobs that would be held by the secretary, the janitor and the men and women on the factory floor. America is becoming a society of part-time jobs.

There are more Americans than ever on the public dole. Millions would be starving if not for government welfare programs, which have done nothing but replace the soup lines of the first Great Depression. Money printing continues; and it is nothing more than a great transfer of wealth to the elites and a tax on the poor and middle class, who see their savings gaining nothing and the prices of the things they buy skyrocketing.

This second Great Depression is showing no signs of letting up and looks to run longer and deeper than the first. There is no economic growth, and there has not been for nearly seven years.

This woman wonders why she alone is shouting into the wind.

“Am I the only one in this community that’s out here, that watches the news… I feel alone in this, and I’m very saddened by it,” she said.

Many of us feel the same way.

Where The Law Doesn’t Apply To The Enforcers, There Is Tyranny

It would seem to be common sense that it is against the law to break the law. But when it comes to government’s enforcers (police, prosecutors and judges), laws do not apply. They can and do break laws with impunity and enforce them or don’t on a whim.

A case in point comes from Manassas City, Va., where police have taken photographs of a teen’s genitals in order to convict him of possession of and manufacturing child pornography. And police and Prince William County prosecutors are asking a judge for permission to force medicate the teen and take even more sexually explicit photos.

The 17-year-old boy is facing two felony charges that could leave him imprisoned until he’s 21 and listed as a sex offender for life. According to news reports, the teen’s defense attorney said the teen’s 15-year-old girlfriend sent photos of herself to the teen, and he responded by sending a video back to her.

The teen was arrested and taken to a juvenile facility where police took photos of the boy’s genitals without his permission — as if a child under the age of consent could grant such.

Prosecutors sought to coerce the youth into a guilty plea by telling him had two choices: plead guilty or be subjected to forced medication so police could “take pictures of his erect penis.” After the teen declined to plead guilty, prosecutors sought and obtained a search warrant to “take him down to the hospital, give him a shot and then take the pictures that we need.”

Carlos Flores Laboy, who was appointed the teen’s guardian ad litem in the case, says he thought it should be illegal for police to create child pornography in order to investigate child pornography.

“They’re using a statute that was designed to protect children from being exploited in a sexual manner,” Flores Laboy said, “to take a picture of this young man in a sexually explicit manner. The irony is incredible.” The guardian added, “As a parent myself, I was floored. It’s child abuse. We’re wasting thousands of dollars and resources and man hours on a sexting case. That’s what we’re doing.”

Detectives told the boy’s attorney that after obtaining photos of the teen’s erect penis, special software will be used to compare the photos with the video the teen is said to have sent.

The U.S. was founded on the premise that it was a Nation of laws. But when the law doesn’t apply to government, the Nation becomes one of tyranny.

EPA Challenging IRS In Its Oppressive Power Grab

There was a time when it could be said there was no more oppressive and reviled Federal agency than the Internal Revenue Service.

Americans feared contact with that agency like no other. It held in its hands the power to proclaim an American citizen guilty of the crime of keeping for himself too much of that which he earned, and required the American citizen to prove his innocence — a policy which stood American justice on its head.

But now there’s a new sheriff in town giving the IRS a run for its money in its ability to oppress the American people. It’s the laughingly misnamed Environment Protection Agency, and it is drawing unConstitutional powers to itself like a black hole draws in matter.

In a Federal Register notice issued July 2, the EPA stated that it now has assumed powers only the IRS had previously assumed: the power to garnish — without a court order — non-Federal wages to collect delinquent non-tax debts “owed” the U.S.

The EPA suddenly believes it derives this power from the Debt Collection Improvement Act of 1996. According to the Department of Treasury, under DCIA, collectable debts include unpaid loans, overpayments or duplicate payments made to Federal salary or benefit payment recipients, misused grant funds, and fines, penalties or fees assessed by Federal agencies.

The EPA regularly misapplies the Clean Water Act — along with regulatory mandates it creates out of whole cloth — to prohibit people and businesses from using their own property to their liking. It invokes fines of thousands of dollars per day without due process, and states that its policies cannot be challenged by the affected property owners.

In one such case, Andy Johnson of Wyoming built a pond on his property. Before building it, Johnson sought and gained the approval of local and State regulators. But he failed to get the approval from the Army Corps of Engineers. The EPA has since threatened him with fines of $75,000 per day for violations of the Clean Water Act if he doesn’t destroy the pond, even though the pond is unpolluted and draws myriad wildlife species.

Another case is that of Chantel and Michael Sackett of Idaho, who were threatened by the EPA with fines of $75,000 per day for trying to build a home on a small lot they owned between other lots that already contained homes. Although the EPA told the Sacketts its order could not be challenged, the Sacketts took it all the way to the Supreme Court, which ruled unanimously in the Sacketts’ favor. In his opinion, Justice Antonin Scalia wrote, “In a nation that values due process, not to mention private property, such treatment is unthinkable.”

His opinion went on to state, “[T]here is no reason to think that the Clean Water Act was uniquely designed to enable the strong-arming of regulated parties into ‘voluntary compliance’ without the opportunity for judicial review–even judicial review of the question whether the regulated party is within the EPA’s jurisdiction.”

But court challenges are costly, particularly against a government entity with an ever-full purse. There are few in the country who would be able to wage a court battle while having their wages garnished.

The EPA is a prime example of big government run amok and demonstrates the danger of allowing an imperial Presidency to rule by fiat. It’s an unConstitutional agency created by executive order by the statist Richard Nixon. And, sadly, it demonstrates again that a feckless Congress has ceded its Constitutional authority as the American lawmaking body.

If the EPA is allowed the power of “debt” collection by garnishment, it will essentially become its own judge, jury and executioner with the unchecked power to levy fines, determine they are unchallengable, and collect the fees in one fell swoop.

An Old And Tired Canard

A highbrow piece of leftist schlock published and distributed free to 20,000 residents in the West Village of Manhattan and seeking relevancy — or something — is creating a stir with an opinion piece in its latest edition, titled “The Nigger In the White House.”

The article in WestView News is a pro-Barack Obama screed attempting to be passed off as intellectual political commentary on the Virginia House of Representatives primary that saw Republican voters send Eric Cantor packing off to a seven-figure per year K-Street career over his support for big government spending and amnesty for illegals. In the article we learn that Cantor lost not because he was an aloof, progressive elitist politician who disdained conservative causes, but because Republicans hate Obama because he’s black. What the piece lacks in logic — and evidence to back its claims — it apparently seeks to make up in shock value.

The commentary writer is James Lincoln Collier, whose claim to fame is a 1975 award for a children’s book he wrote and another children’s book that is regularly banned from libraries over the gratuitous use of the word “nigger” by its characters.

The publisher of WestView News defended the use of “nigger” in the headline by pointing out that Collier had submitted other articles in which he wanted to use the word, but they had been rejected because the newspaper’s staff had objected. And it still does, publisher George Capsis claimed, writing: “In this article however [sic] Jim reminded me that the [sic] New York Times avoids using the word which convinced me that WestView should.” Some logic, that.

In the article, Collier makes the point that Presidents “have been subjected to stinging attacks before” by noting that “Franklin Roosevelt was royally hated by conservatives for his advocacy of social programs and support for unions.” But those “stinging attacks” were not racially motivated, I suppose, because no other President (save Bill Clinton) was black. I would here remind that it wasn’t Roosevelt himself who was “hated,” but his policies of the New Deal, profligate spending, wealth redistribution and special dispensations to the unions — all of which made the depression into the Great Depression, which lasted longer and went deeper than any other… until Obama began his reign.

But, according to Collier, “stinging attacks” against Obama for his policies are obviously racist. He writes, “It is possible to draw only one conclusion: these [sic] far right voters hate Obama because he’s black.” Of course, Collier offers no evidence that conservative disdain for Obama policies is any different than conservative disdain for Roosevelt policies — except that blacks are different. This is something that Collier apparently recognizes more than anyone as he points it out more than once.

That conservatives hate Obama’s blackness is an old and tired canard. What they “hate” are his Marxism, his fascism and his ongoing efforts to turn the U.S. into a Third World backwater.

Vinpocetine

Vinpocetine, produced from the vinca plant, has been shown to help protect the nervous system. Vinpocetine supports brain metabolism by increasing the body’s ability to use adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which is used for cellular energy.

Vinpocetine also increases the synthesis of several brain neurotransmitters. It is reported to be considerably more effective than ginkgo biloba for supporting mental acuity and alertness.

It has been well-proven that vinpocetine improves blood flow to the brain and improves brain function. Several studies indicate it is useful to reduce memory loss and cognitive decline. The recommended dose is 20-30 mg daily.

Yes, Doctors Are Dealers

Commenting on Is Your Doctor A Drug Dealer?,
John Henry says:
July 2, 2014
Personally I would say YES …

I have seen many people die because of prescribed drugs over the past couple of decades. Drug manufactures representatives go to your doctors office every week and give them samples, talk to them about their drugs and provide a catered lunch for all in that office each and every working day… just to get the doctor to prescribe their drugs.

The FDA is operated and staffed by big Pharm. They cannot wait to get new drugs onto the market, drugs that are not cures but treatments. If it only kills 10% of those that use it, then its ok and they sell it with a disclaimer at the end of the commercial telling that it could do so.

We have all seen commercials from law offices telling us about class action law suits against the drug manufacture while the drug is still being advertised.

People are dieing, lives are being destroyed, and your doctor with clear conscious has no problem prescribing these death dealing drugs to you for profit, knowing that if it works its no more than a treatment to be repeated for years on the inside and the remainder of your life on the outside, they do not prescribe a cure, as a cure would end the profit for everyone.

Is this not the same as what any meth, cocaine, and heroin dealer does each and every day?

‘The More Power The Government Has…’

“The more power the government has, the greater the risk to the people and the more dangerous the abuse.”–Edmund Burke, 1771.

Big government is organized crime in all but name, and the man in the street is numb to the universal risk in today’s world.

Politicians and bureaucrats are spending the world into oblivion while secretly hoping and expecting to escape debt with depreciated dollars: yours. The public is unaware.

Note that your “elected” politicians never talk about the ongoing depreciation (inflation) of paper money (U.S. dollars). They don’t want you to think about this. They would rather you think about Donald Sterling and his frivolous racial comments.

But you should be on high alert. Liquidity is not only negative; it is at its most negative level in history. Are we facing the second Great Depression or worse?

For the third time in 14 years, U.S. stocks are in a bubble and far more leveraged than ever before. There are now more corporate bonds outstanding in the U.S. than there are mortgage-backed securities. This is significant, and the heart of the next crisis and the debt bubble will be non-financial corporate debt.

Investors beware! Stockholders beware!

Thanks to the Fed, it now seems that we have a bubble in all asset classes much larger than 2007. The Fed and other central banks with their expansionary monetary policies, all designed to boost asset prices, are similar to a juggler who is trying to keep all his balls in the air. The Big One is coming and there will be no place to hide except in very depressed gold stocks.

For the past four years, we have seen hard financial times and deteriorating business; but let me remind you of history. We don’t get the classic ice age depression until the New York stock market tanks. I expect this in 2014, this year. Its setup is now! No matter the fundamentals, every stock market that is booming seems to paralyze the mass mind.

Keep your gold stocks, your silver and gold and, yes, your stash of cash close to your heart.

These things will be scarce!

The coming second Great Depression will be very high-risk to your assets and to you personally. Get a good dog and bond with him and keep him in your home at night along with your loaded gun. Don’t be scared; just be ready.

The more ready you are, the safer you will be. This will all make sense to you in time.

The Two-Party System

The American people keep losing because they keep believing that there are two political parties. This belief that there are two political parties is a great deception that covers over systemic rot.

The first road out of serfdom is to begin to see that the so-called two-party system is a one-party system, a government-party system. It is perfectly amazing how we hold to the two-party illusion. Most people just can’t shake the deception. It borders on dementia. The politicians love it!

I realized many years ago that no matter who got elected, things always kept going in the same direction. There were obvious political and economic solutions, but the one party with two names made certain that the established order did not change. The people love deception, and they cling to it.

The unofficial U.S. monetary policy is currency devaluation. This has been true since the changing of the monetary system into the private Federal Reserve System in 1913. It was all in the plan to slowly take trillions of dollars away from the American people without general public awareness.

The act of currency devaluation can be understood simply as printing new currency. This is not an innocent game, but is theft from every person in the world who holds or uses dollars.

Each time new money is added, either as paper money or computer entries, all money already in the system — whether in circulation or under the mattress — is worth less. It is an unannounced and insidious process that covers theft on a grand scale.

This is, in fact, a scheme of the ongoing theft and transfer of the savings and assets of Americans to the banker elite. No Representative or Senator ever warned of this massive silent transfer of wealth.

As currency is diluted and gets weaker, it buys less and prices go up at the grocery store. The result is that people confuse cause and effect. They naively think that rising prices is simple price inflation, but it is actually the result of currency devaluation, meaning the banking system stole your purchasing power by and through new money printing.

What do the banking elite call money printing? They use words and terms that disguise their money printing so the general public doesn’t understand. Their buzzword is “quantitative easing.” This stealth money printing has a very serious effect, namely the ultimate and total debasement of the currency and the general destruction of savings and impoverishment of the people.

There are numerous instances in history where the population was made poor and hungry because greedy monetary authorities printed paper money into worthlessness. It is now happening in America.

American dollars have been loosed on the world as pure fiat currency since President Richard Nixon closed all gold transfers to foreign countries in 1971. Now the chickens are coming home to roost. We are at the end of our system of debt. And of course the crowd is oblivious to their slow impoverishment.

An impoverished people is easy to control. Especially one that has no guns — hence the ongoing effort to disarm us.

Note from the Editor: Round two of the financial meltdown is predicted to reach global proportions, already adversely affecting Greece, Spain and most of Europe. It appears less severe in the states because our banks are printing useless fiat currency. I’ve arranged for readers to get two free books—Surviving a Global financial Crisis and Currency Collapse, plus How to Survive the Collapse of Civilization—to help you prepare for the worst. <a “nofollow” href=”http://landing.personalliberty.com/global-financial-crisis/full-blown-collapse-BIFB_LP04.aspx?SC=P11123707″ target=”_blank”>Click here for your free copies.

This Document Proclaimed Our Freedom From Tyranny

In Congress, July 4, 1776.
A Declaration
By the representatives of the
United States Of America,
In general Congress assembled.

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.–Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.
He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.
He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.
He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.
He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.
He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the Legislative powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.
He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.
He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers.
He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.
He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.
He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power.
He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:
For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:
For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:
For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:
For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:
For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:
For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences
For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies:
For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:
For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.
He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.
He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.
He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.
He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.
He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our Brittish brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.

We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.

Euthanasia: ‘Public Policy’

I began publishing my monthly newsletter The Bob Livingston Letter™ (subscription required) in 1969. The following is an excerpt from the July 1996 issue. In it, I commented upon the acquittal of Jack Kevorkian in one of his trails for performing “assisted suicides,” which is another way of phrasing “euthanasia.” The death panels in Obamacare are a continuation of policies the Federal government instigated 50 years ago to promote a culture of death and push Americans into accepting the idea that that the aged and infirmed were net drags on the American system and, for altruistic reasons, should be “eliminated” in order to serve the “greater good.”

Abortion, murder and infanticide is public policy in America. When anything becomes public policy, it is actually government sponsored. Public policy is a high-sounding term which implies that the people agree and desire certain action.

Change agents invented the concept “public policy” to disguise authoritarianism by making it seem palatable.

But before something becomes official and “public policy,” it begins as unofficial public policy. In the beginning or unofficial stage, the government and its politicians appear to be silent or neutral on an issue. All appears to be spontaneous, coming from grass roots idealism. For example, infant murder began under the altruistic sounding words “planned parenthood.” As always in such chicanery, these words are totally misleading. But they have worked their charm on lukewarm church-going Americans. Not one in ten thousand, when they hear the words “planned parenthood,” thinks of child murder.

In the beginning stages of creating the public mind to accept the formulation of public policy, it all has an aura of free expression and “free choice.” This is the stage that abortion (unofficial child murder) and euthanasia are in at this time. Of course, abortion is far more advanced than euthanasia (“assisted suicide”).

While some people are mildly alarmed, few would ever suspect the progression pattern and how these altruistic social expressions finally evolve into law. This means in plain language that at some point, the government decides “by law” who is to die “in the public interest.” They will decide which children will die and which aged and infirm will die. And eventually, they will come after you with no pretense.

By the time murder laws are enacted, the people will have been prepared to accept them as desirable and “for the good of the country” and the community. We reach the stage of the animal farm, as in Orwell’s book 1984.

We predicted the acquittal of Dr. Jack Kevorkian because we said that he is an agent provocateur to initiate public policy on euthanasia, termed “assisted suicide.”

There is a very solid economic reason why unofficial “public policy” wants you to expire when you retire. Too many aging people and too much medical consumption is a real and present crisis for the government.

It may not be official or stated, but you can be sure that population control to limit consumption is a serious government policy and program. As more and more consumption flows to an aging and sick population, the transfer of real resources reverses to these population segments. The tail begins to wag the dog. The economic system was designed to transfer real resources to the government. There is an economic agenda behind the “medical crisis.”

The term “medical crisis” is a code word for excessive public consumption. The unofficial and unstated long range “public policy” is assisted suicide and “free choice” (child murder).
