Choose Heart-Healthy Foods

When mainstream doctors suspect heart disease, they immediately turn to drugs for a cure. There is little discussion of diet.

But the simplest, easiest and tastiest ways to combat heart disease is to eat right. Of course, you knew that already. You know it’s true as is often said that, “you are what you eat.”

Heart health is really quite simple. Certain foods do your heart good. Eat more of them. Other foods do harm to your heart. Eat less of them or avoid them altogether.

You can also take supplements that supply the specific ingredients found by researchers to give you a strong heart and make its job easier, but it’s far better to get them the way nature intended—at mealtime. The nutrients in their natural state are more potent than the processed kind, and your body absorbs and processes them more efficiently when received in natural form.

The list of foods that are friendly to your heart is extensive, so you’ll have a tasty menu to enjoy while pampering your ticker. I’ve selected 31 heart-healthy foods (in random order) – and the benefits they provide — that I recommend you include in your diet.

Heart-Healthy Foods

1. Salmon/fish: Omega-3 fatty acids.

2. Flaxseed (ground): Omega-3 fatty acids; fiber, phytoestrogens.

3. Oatmeal: Omega-3 fatty acids; magnesium; potassium; folate; niacin; calcium; soluble fiber… serve with blueberries or raisins (or make oatmeal/raisin cookies) for extra heart protection.

4. Black or kidney beans: B-complex vitamins; niacin; folate; magnesium; omega-3 fatty acids; calcium; soluble fiber… served as a side dish or in soups and on salads.

5. Nuts: Vitamins, minerals, heart-healthy monounsaturated fats and low levels of saturated fats. Eat nuts—walnuts, pecans, almonds, hazelnuts, pistachios, pine nuts and peanuts (which actually are legumes)—two to four days or more per week.

6. Red wine: Catechins and reservatrol (flavonoids)… could improve “good” HDL cholesterol.

7. Tuna: Omega-3 fatty acids; folate; niacin.

8. Tofu: Niacin; folate; calcium; magnesium; potassium.

9. Brown rice: B-complex vitamins; fiber; niacin; magnesium, fiber… stir in with chopped vegetables like broccoli, carrots or spinach.

10. Soy milk: Isoflavones (a flavonoid); Bcomplex vitamins; niacin; folate, calcium;

magnesium; potassium; phytoestrogens.

11. Blueberries: Beta-carotene and lutein (carotenoids); anthocyanin (a flavonoid); ellagic acid (a polyphenol); vitamin C; folate; calcium, magnesium; potassium; fiber. Cranberries, strawberries, raspberries are potent, too. Use them in trail mixes, muffins, and salads!

12. Carrots: Alpha-carotene (a carotenoid); fiber.

13. Spinach: Lutein (a carotenoid); B-complex vitamins; folate; magnesium; potassium; calcium; fiber. Substitute spinach for lettuce on sandwiches, in salads.

23. Dark chocolate: Resveratrol and cocoa phenols (flavonoids) — choose 70 percent or

higher cocoa content — epicatechin boosts nitric oxide to help keep blood pressure down.

24. Tea (especially green tea): Catechins and flavonols (flavonoids).

25. Whole grains: Antioxidants, phytoestrogens and phytosterols that are protective against coronary disease.

26. Raisins: Antioxidants that fight bacteria that can cause inflammation and gum disease (people with gum disease are twice as likely to suffer from heart problems).

27. Yogurt: Probiotics protect against gum disease that elevates heart risk (also improves digestion and boosts immunity).

28. Apples: Strong antioxidant flavonoid compounds help prevent “bad” LDL cholesterol from oxidizing.

29. Pomegranates: Polyphenols may help reduce buildup of plaque in the arteries and lower blood pressure… highest antioxidant capacity compared to other antioxidant-rich

beverages like blueberry juice, cranberry juice and red wine.

30. Bananas: Potassium helps kidneys excrete excess sodium, contributing to healthy blood pressure.

31. Garlic: Reduces the enzyme angiotensin that constricts blood vessels, helps reduce the buildup of plaque in blood vessels.

There are lots of other heart-healthy goodies to expand the variety of your menu, like sweet potatoes, Brussels sprouts, collard greens, kale, cauliflower, carrots, turnips, winter squash, acorn squash, pumpkin, mackerel, herring, sardines, pears, apricots, peaches and plums.

And, as always, choose organic.

The Most Deceptive Word In The English Language

This is a political and subversive word created and promoted by the establishment as a major key to formulate and channel the public mind. It has more than saturated the public conscience. Very “intellectual” people spout this word assuming that it means human freedom and liberty.

The truth and purpose of this word is for a cover and disguise for fascism and socialism. This word is the workhorse of the American propaganda ministry.Every person is taught this word, from politicians to school children. The government indoctrination centers (also known as schools) and the corporate media use it religiously. Politicians love its sound. It is one of President Barack Obama’s favorite words.

It was an important word to Hitler and Joseph Goebbels.

What is this word? It’s “Democracy.”

Let’s play a little game. See how many times you hear this word in a day from the elites, from the media and from your friends. Six; a dozen, 20 or more?

The U.S. was founded as a Republic. When asked what type of government they had created, Benjamin Franklin replied, “A republic, if you can keep it.” We could not. Our republic has been transformed into a democracy.

Democracy is an esoteric belief system that manipulates the people in such a way that all power flows to the state. As with pure dictatorships, power flows from the top down.

Democracy implies freedom in the public’s mind while power and wealth is constantly channeled to the Federal government. Human liberty is regressively crushed under the one simple word, “democracy.”

Democracy is a political word that is embraced by all political parties and all politicians under many labels in every country of the modern world. It is a cover and a facade for communism, socialism, fascism, for class warfare, for the exploitation and manipulation of minorities against stability, cultural heritage and private property. (By the way; communism, socialism and fascism are all equal. Don’t be fooled by claims that one is a right wing and another is a left wing philosophy. They all transfer power to the state. The difference is simply semantics.)

When politicians utter the word democracy, they are using a code word that signifies their total allegiance to the state. They are using mass hypnosis to manipulate the people against human liberty.

Democracy is that universal mystery that is loved by all and opposed by none. It implies everything good to everyone and every religion. It is the mantle (mantra) of the New World Order. It is the apex of adoration for the state, universalism, One Worldism and materialism. It is Satanism posing as an angel of light.

Anyone seeking human liberty, privacy and private property under the mental deception of democracy is under the greatest illusion. Let us purge our minds of this seductive appeal, this spiritual despotism. It has stolen our conscience, our soul and our honor. It is our legacy to future generations to whom we are passing on our slavery. Shame could have no greater victory.

Democracy is a faith, a state religion, a state of mind. It is the progressive destruction of the person — the individual. It is covered and masked with benevolence, philanthropy and brotherhood. Democracy is the opposite of the common belief. It is “democratic” tyranny, a camouflage for despotism. Its goal is nothing less than universal slavery.

Democracy is the polish, the refinement and the finished perfection of all the tyranny and despotism of history. It is the culmination of that perfect slave state where men and women give their minds, spirits, production and children over to the state. We are reduced to automatons and commercial units. We are government statistics.

The word democracy is a very important word in psychological warfare of government against the people. Democracy as a concept of freedom has evolved over many decades. It is a design word to impress upon the people an imagination that they are free. It has worked unbelievably well!

If the people imagine that they are free, all sorts of crimes by the political system can be imposed, without protest, upon the people. It is an invisible armed guard.

Mental democracy is a psychological weapon of the state that motivates the people to obey the system and to love the state. As George Orwell wrote in his book, 1984, the people come to love Big Brother (the state).

If we focus on this word democracy as an organism, we can tie the visible to the invisible and thus reveal the subterfuge. Democracy is an organism used to pacify the people. And what is an organism? An organism is a repetitive dogma that neutralizes the mind. Its purpose is to integrate the freedom concept of democracy into the American psyche.

It is not formal. It has no overt organization. It may function legally or illegally within the law or above the law. It is never identified as to its true name and purpose. It has no ethnic, social or legal connotation. It is powerful psychological warfare.

With this invisible organism, the American state has imposed all 10 planks of the Communist Manifesto without protest and beyond the awareness of the American people who imagine that they are free.

Following are the 10 planks of communism. They show that America is more a communistic than republican in form of government.

  1. Abolition of property in land and application of all rents of land to public purposes. (Private property rights are almost nonexistent today. You don’t own your property if it can be confiscated for non-payment of tribute to the king, or if a government agency  like the EPA or the USDA can arbitrarily tell you what you can and can’t do with it.)
  2. A heavy progressive or graduated income tax. (Accomplished via the American tax system. Enforced via the Gestapo-like Internal Revenue Service.)
  3. Abolition of all rights of inheritance. (Accomplished via the estate tax.)
  4. Confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels. (Accomplished via rendition and drug laws allowing law enforcement to confiscate property if it is suspected of being used in the trade or manufacture of drugs — often without evidence – or to satisfy debts and fines imposed by alphabet soup agencies.)
  5. Centralization of credit in the hands of the state, by means of a national bank with state capital and an exclusive monopoly. (Accomplished via the Federal Reserve, which is not Federal and doesn’t hold “reserves.”)
  6. Centralization of the means of communication and transport in the hands of the state. (Accomplished via the Federal Communications Commission and the regulated airline industry, Amtrak, public transportation and the regulated auto industry. Further attempts being made to seize more power through control of the Internet.)
  7. Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the state; the bringing into cultivation of wastelands and the improvement of the soil, generally in accordance with a common plan. (Accomplished through price controls on the utilities via their government-supported monopolies and subsidies for favored industries.)
  8. Equal liability of all to work. Establishment of industrial armies, especially for agriculture. (Industrial armies accomplished through regulations favoring/subsidizing unions.)
  9. Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries; gradual abolition of all the distinction between town and country by a more equable distribution of the populace over the country. (In progress via Agenda 21, “sustainable development” communities, etc.)
  10. Free education for all children in public schools. Abolition of children’s factory labor in its present form. Combination of education with industrial production. (Accomplished via the public indoctrination system called public education under the control of the Federal government.)

These planks are supported by both major political parties.

I truly dread the ramifications of what will come about should these disease-ridden individuals be allowed to contaminate our children because our opposition is pinning their hopes on creating a one-party-system in this country. Don’t give me that humanitarian crap. They always claim it’s for the children. That’s how they strum the heart-strings of those too weak-minded to see past the charade. Any harm brought to our society because of this will be on the hands of those who perpetrated the dastardly deed.

Obama didn’t want a photo op because he didn’t want these filthy, disease ridden, 3rd world vermin anywhere near him. They don’t even use the bathroom facilities available to them, WAY too icky for our UBER RICH, ARROGANT, DEMOCRAT ELITISTS. Funny thing, NONE of these leftist millionaires & billionaires want to LIVE, WORK, GO TO SCHOOL WITH or FINANCIALLY SUPPORT these ILLEGALS, they just want the Hispanic VOTE.
It AMAZES me how Democrat voters can support these criminal a$$holes. I didn’t like GW Bush because he was a gutless, white apologist, pro amnesty, big government dick. How can a working class Democrat voter defend these CRIMINAL SCUM? WHY do leftists WORSHIP politicians who CHEAT, LIE & ROB THEM BLIND? Liberalism is TRULY a MENTAL ILLNESS. I GUARANTEE YOU that if an unbiased psychiatrist examined Democrat politicians & voters you would see just how mentally ill these people really are.

The Ebola Scaremongers

Fear is one of the strongest of human emotions. It’s the go-to emotion when the elites want to exert more control or simply to distract your attention.

America is experiencing a mass invasion across the southern border. More than two-thirds of Americans recognize it for what it is: A deliberate attack on the American system orchestrated by President Barack Obama at the behest of the global elite. The globalists have set the world on fire. Gaza, Iraq, Syria, Libya and Iraq are in flames. A lawless President mocks the American people as he “fundamentally transforms” the country. A lawless Congress provides him cover.

Americans are finally showing signs of an awakening. More are coming out of their slumber. Obama’s approval numbers are negative 13.5, according to Real Clear Politics. Congress’ is much worse.

The people recognize their “elected politicians” don’t have their best interests at heart. They serve the money gods and nothing else – the people be damned.

The system is collapsing. The Internet has provided a forum for the truth. The people see past the lies of the elites and their propaganda machine. Pockets of resistance are growing. The Bundy Ranch standoff was a flashpoint.

Ebola! Watch the left hand. Ignore the right.

Alan Grayson, the Marxist Congressman from Florida, has taken on the role of the illusionist. Close the borders, he says. But not the U.S. borders, where all manner of third world diseases, criminals, violent gang members and socialist indoctrinated people are entering the country to be spread far and wide by the criminal President and his criminal regime who are working to transform America into a Third-World backwater.

No. Leave the U.S. borders open. Never mind the people’s wishes. It’s the borders of Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone that should be closed.

Ebola! Its only method of human-to-human transmission is direct exposure (through broken skin or mucous membranes) with the blood, secretions, organs or other bodily fluids of infected people, or contact with environments contaminated with such fluids.

In the entire recorded history of the world there have been 841 confirmed cases and 456 confirmed deaths from Ebola, according to the World Health Organization. To put that in context, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention claims (falsely) that the flu kills 36,000 Americans annually. WHO claims seasonal flu kills 250,000-500,000 worldwide each year.

Who (or WHO?) has called for a border to be closed for the flu?

By exploiting people’s fear over the mysterious Ebola virus, the elites are seeking to regain control and distract your attention. Crisis governing leads to more control. It’s an old play from an old book. Don’t fall for it.

Aliens, Licentiousness And Foreign Attachments

While President Barack Obama continues to brazenly defy the law and violate the Constitution by not only not halting the invasion of illegals at the southern border but by openly encouraging it and promising to further overstep his Constitutional authority with executive orders and while Democrats and the GOP leadership work to subversively grant amnesty to millions of illegals who have broken U.S. laws in order to enter the country, the American public is becoming increasingly vocal in their opposition to what is currently passing as government immigration policy.

Fully 77 percent of the Nation wants the illegals deported. That’s because the American people actually care about the country and recognize that the sudden influx of illegals will transform the Nation’s culture, steal what few jobs there are available and drive down wages; whereas the political establishment cares only about money and power and pleasing its corporate masters.

The Founders, though living in a new Nation with a population consisting mostly of recent immigrants, recognized the danger of too many aliens arriving at once without the desire to assimilate into the “spirit” of the new country.

“[Emigrants] will bring with them the principles of governments they leave, imbibed in their early youth;” Thomas Jefferson wrote in his “Notes on the State of Virginia,” “or, if able to throw off, it will be in exchange for unbounded licentiousness, passing, as is usual, from one extreme to the other. It would be a miracle if they were to stop precisely at the point of temperate liberty.”

And writing “an Examination of the President’s Message” in 1802 for the New York Evening Post, Alexander Hamilton posited that, “Some reasonable term ought to be allowed to enable aliens to get rid of foreign and acquire American attachments; to learn the principles and imbibe the spirit of our government; and to admit of a probability at least, of their feeling a real interest in our affairs.”

Unfortunately, the psychopathic political class remains unbothered by such “trivial” matters as whether the immigrants will ever “learn the principals and imbibe the spirit of our government.” For Democrats, they see the prospect of a host of dependent class voters who favor socialism. The Democrats’ chief funders, the unions, see countless new unionized zombies to exploit in order to fill their coffers. The Republican establishment wants amnesty to please its corporate masters and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

The battle over illegal immigration is nothing more than a power and money play among the elites to the detriment of the people.

Beware GMOs; They Set You Up For Cancer, Other Diseases

If you were to write a movie about evil scientists plotting to insert secret ingredients into the food supply in order to make humans sick, you’d have a hard time coming up with something more inventive and potentially more dangerous than genetically modified (GMO) food.

Even though GMO ingredients are not listed on food labels, they have already infiltrated our dinner plates. And this technological change to our food has the potential for sabotaging the world’s food supply. Sadly, most Americans don’t even realize they eat GMO food at just about every meal. In particular, the soy and corn ingredients of our favorite dishes almost always contain GMO ingredients.

U.S. farmers and farmers around the world plant vast amounts of these laboratory-created crops. In particular, soy, corn and cotton (processed food frequently has cottonseed oil added to it) have been genetically engineered to contain toxic pesticides and to withstand massive amounts of herbicides that are applied to farm fields. This allows GMO crops to survive and be harvested while weeds in the fields are supposed to wither and die.

Of course, other beneficial living things like honeybees, other pollinators and a wide collection of wildlife also perish from massive pesticide exposure. And the pesticides often persist long enough to poison our water and air.

According to estimates by the International Service for the Acquisition of Agri-biotech Applications, since GMO crops were introduced in the 1990s, 1 billion acres worldwide have been planted with these plants. That’s an area larger than the continental United States.

GMO proponents argue that the technology is safe, but recent discoveries about what happens in the genetic material of altered organisms are not reassuring. Understand that we are not talking about hybridization, which is the process of cross breeding similar plants in order to create a superior variety or achieve a specific characteristic. Creating GMO plants is much different and can involve replacing, swapping or splicing genes or inserting viruses into the genes themselves in order to alter their very nature.

In theory, altering an organism’s genetic material seems simple and precise. The process is supposed to consist of extracting a desirable gene from one plant or animal and inserting it into another.

Suppose, for example, one wants to create tomatoes that can withstand cold weather. In theory, genes that allow a frost-resistant plant to survive freezing temperatures are extracted and put it into the tomato plant. When seeds of the new tomato plant grow, the presence of this genetic material stimulates activity in the new plants that keep them alive as the temperature drops.

In practice, however, this leads to unforeseen consequences. Only recently have scientists discovered that the genes scientists insert into plants are often contaminated with unintended material, including viruses.

The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has discovered that when lab scientists altered genes in GMO food, they were also feeding in parts of a virus gene. No one had ever noticed that before.

This virus gene, however, is now in the food we eat. Is it safe? Will it lead to some type of new illness among the millions of people who consume it? Experts can’t say. It has never before been present in our food. Before this discovery, nobody even knew it was in GMO foods.

Reports about this virus show that of the 86 different processes being used to insert genes into GMO crops, this virus is present in 54 of them, including corn and soy beans. Some of these crops are used for food. Others are used to feed farm animals that produce meat, dairy products and eggs. In other words, this virus of questionable safety is in a lot of the foods sitting in your refrigerator and cupboard.

Experts believe these types of viral genes are potentially very dangerous. EFSA researchers have concluded that these genes might result in phenotypic changes (changes to an organism’s observable characteristics and traits) that cause the development of proteins that are toxic to humans.

Viral genes are designed to hobble our immune systems (and the immune systems of plants and animals) so that the viruses can invade cells and flourish. Scientists are concerned about this newly discovered viral material because the viruses that invade the cells of a plant do not fundamentally differ from the viruses that infect people.

The newly discovered viral gene is called the Cauliflower Mosaic Virus (CaMV) Promoter, and it is used to force the foreign gene to pump out proteins at a high volume. Because it suppresses defenses against viral infection, those who consume food contaminated with it may be more susceptible to viral infections like colds, hepatitis and even AIDS. And because it modifies cells and is toxic to them, it may be the source of cancer and other diseases.

Concern about these genes caused Pete Riley, director of the public interest group GM Freeze, to warn: “This is a clear warning (that GMO food) is not sufficiently understood to be considered safe.” Riley also told the Daily Mail: “Authorization for these crops must be suspended immediately, and they should be withdrawn from sale, until a full and extended review of their safety has been carried out.”

Unfortunately, ensuring proper review of the safety of GMO crops or getting truthful information from the Food and Drug Administration or the Department of Agriculture is dubious, at best. In many cases, the same people who hold high-paying jobs at Big Agriculture eventually move into positions at the regulatory agencies that are supposed to be protecting us against their abuses of the food system.

Consider the case of Michael Taylor, deputy commissioner for foods for the FDA. Over the past several years he has moved from a job at the FDA to a job at a law firm that represented Monsanto. Then he moved to a job at Monsanto (a leader in creating GMOs), over to the USDA, back to the law firm, over to Monsanto, to a position on a university, to a think tank and then back to the FDA.

It’s a pretty cushy career path for Taylor, but a disaster for our protection from questionable food. While Taylor was doing his second stint at the FDA, the agency adjusted its regulatory policies so GMOs could be introduced into our diet without being tested for toxic effects.

Currently, the only way for you to avoid GMO foods is to eat organic food. Any other food, even items marked “all-natural,” may contain GMO ingredients. You can get a free shopping guide to help you find non-GMO foods here.

Note from the Editor: Monsanto is just like Big Tobacco! With that kind of power—and the help of the FDA—it’s easy to cover up, ignore and fight the mountain of research proving GMO products KILL.

Don’t Try To Feed Me With Drugs!

One of the vast misconceptions of modern medicine — and there are many — is that if you are sick, you need a doctor or a drug. The most a drug can do is mask symptoms. But people falsely believe that if symptoms are gone, the sickness or malady is gone. This makes modern medicine a world-class hoax.

There are many factors that govern metabolism: race, age, sex, previous food conditions, individual idiosyncrasies, variability of basal metabolism in individuals, rate of metabolism, imperfect balance of ones’ food, fatigue, cold, damp, panic fear, mental depression and imperfect hygiene. Most important of all, infection may influence the onset or modify the course and character of a malady due primarily to dietetic defects.

It should be emphasized that these factors all involve metabolic variations in individual subjects, impose additional burdens on the metabolic resources of the body or depress the functional capacity of the endocrine regulators of metabolism. It is especially important to realize that people receiving too little vitamins or nutrition are living in a state of potential morbidity that may be converted into disease by a variety of factors that further exhaust metabolism.

Variations in metabolism explain why some people are sick and others are not. But the degree of malnutrition that may make one person sick may not affect another.

Can The U.S. Go Bankrupt?

When an individual goes bankrupt, he has spent more than his income. His debts and the interest on those debts exceed all the income he has to such a degree that they are beyond his ability to repay.

Most people believe that national governments go bankrupt because they spend too much or spend more than their income. This is what colleges and universities teach and propaganda media parrot. Furthermore, when governments “overspend,” they call it “deficit spending.” But there is no such thing as national bankruptcy as the word “bankruptcy” implies or as it applies to the individual.

There are certain key words and phrases cleverly put into use to conceal the source of government finance: Federal budget, government spending, government deficit and Federal income tax. Believe it or not, none of these terms relates to government finance. But they do cover government fraud on an unbelievable scale.

The terms Federal budget, government spending and government deficit are meaningless when the Federal government and the central bank (Federal Reserve) create money in the form of paper and numbers called credit, in unlimited amounts. The government does not want public knowledge of its monetary trickery. This is why universities teach “accounting” and “finance.”

A simple axiom: To go broke or bankrupt in the national government sense implies that there is a finite or limited supply of money available to national governments. But money does not exist, and no one has ever proven that it does. People think that paper “dollars” are money. In truth, no one has ever seen a dollar. A dollar is not a thing. It is a unit of measurement the same as the terms quart or ton.

Don’t believe me? Will you believe the Federal Reserve’s own publications from the 1970s?

  • “Today, most coin and currency is ‘fiat’ money — money by virtue of government declaration and public acceptance. Fiat money isn’t valuable in itself and doesn’t represent a claim on gold or silver. Fiat money is acceptable because people know money’s true value is its purchasing power — its ability to buy goods and services.” — The Story Of Money, p. 19, Federal Reserve Bank of New York.
  • “Coin and currency are ‘Legal Tender,’ money the Government says has to be accepted if offered to settle a debt. But that approval doesn’t make cash any more ‘real’ than checkbook balances.” — I Bet You Thought… p. 7, Federal Reserve Bank of New York
  • “Neither paper currency nor deposits have value as commodities. Intrinsically, a dollar bill is just a piece of paper. Deposits are merely book entries. Coins do have some intrinsic value as metal, but far less than their face amount… What, then, makes these instruments — checks, paper money, and coins — acceptable at face value in payment of all debts and for other monetary uses? Mainly, it is the confidence people have that they will be able to exchange such money for real goods and services whenever they choose to do so.” — Modern Money Mechanics, p. 3, Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago
  • “Currency backing isn’t relevant in today’s economy. Currency cannot be ‘redeemed,’ or exchanged, for Treasury gold or any other asset used as backing. The question of just what assets ‘back’ Federal Reserve notes has little but bookkeeping significance.” – I Bet You Thought…, p. 11, Federal Reserve Bank of New York
  • “Commercial banks are important financial institutions because they can create money — checkbook money. When we borrow $200 at a local bank to buy a washing machine, we sign an I.O.U. and the banker writes a slip for a $200 addition to our checking account. No one has any less money on deposit, but we have more. The banker has bought our I.O.U. with new demand deposits -­ checkbook money -­ which were created. Bank credit and checkbook money have both increased $200.” — Money and Economic Balance, p. 177, Federal Reserve of New York

The method of money creation is witchcraft. It has been witchcraft for thousands of years. Modern economists and sophisticated eggheads only imagine that they understand money.

Yet nothing that affects our lives could be so all-important. Money is not a dull subject, because the study of money is a study of tyranny. It makes a mockery out of human freedom, property ownership and the accumulation of wealth.

Once we understand money, we then know that any imagined personal freedom that we have is a license or privilege given by the government which can be taken away by the government. The purpose of money is to transfer wealth from the producers to the nonproducer money creators.

John Maynard Keynes revealed a lot in his book, Consequences of the Peace, published in 1919. He stated, “If governments should refrain from regulation (taxation), the worthlessness of the money becomes apparent and the fraud upon the people can be concealed no longer.”

Keynes said in this statement that the system of income tax covers the fraud of the government printing press. What does this mean? It means that the government and its partner the Federal Reserve is printing money (creating credit) out of nothing and paying it into circulation for whatever the government wants, whether it be a fleet of ships or an army or to keep the people fat and happy. To cover the fraud of massive confiscation of wealth with printing press money, we have an income tax system.

The income tax system has a very serious purpose, but contrary to what Americans think the income tax has absolutely nothing to do with funding the government. The income tax is a consumption tax. The income tax regulates consumption. Note Keynes’ word “regulation” above. The income tax system penalizes those who are successful. It is a social and economic leveling system.

The income tax also is used to take as much “money” out of circulation as possible. The more “money” taken out through the income tax, the more the money creators can create. The less “money” there is, the better it keeps its imagined value.

  • “Too much money results in excess spending. When consumers, businesses and governments spend excessively, they compete for the available supply of goods and services and force prices up. When prices rise, the purchasing power of money falls. To keep purchasing power strong, then, the supply of money must not increase too rapidly.” — I Bet You Thought…, p. 111, Federal Reserve Bank of New York

The Federal government funds itself with “printing press money.” The income tax does not fund the Federal government. Almost nobody knows this, but it is extremely important to understand. The power to create money is the source of government force and bureaucratic tyranny in our lives.

What does all this mean to us? It means that we live under an authoritarian system and we are at its mercy. The Federal government has monopoly power to create money (credit or debt) backed by force. And it disguises this system from the people with the income tax system explained above. Simply stated, corporate government is transferring unbelievable and unimaginable wealth to itself with “money” that it creates and which costs nothing. Does this not make “organized crime” look like Sunday school?

This is how and why world wars are financed that cost millions of young lives. This is how social and economic policy is forged into so-called public policy, a euphemism for government social engineering and government force.

“Public policy” is government force in our lives based on monopoly power to create “money.”

So can governments experience economic collapse? Yes, but no one is aware of how it comes about. That’s because it is not a bankruptcy as is generally understood.

Here’s how it happens: The process of government “money” creation is a concealed scheme of consuming (stealing) the national wealth. In effect, the government creates its own wealth — not from taxes, but by creating “money” and using it to fund the government and to transfer wealth from the people to itself. The simple equation is that when governments consume all the national wealth of the people, then the government collapses.

Governments produce nothing, so governments must live off of the producers. It is the nature of governments to grow bigger and bigger and consume more and more of the national wealth. Do you see this happening?

At some point, government overconsumes the national wealth and collapses. Government finally consumes more than the people can produce.

So then, modern bankruptcy of national governments is not overspending. It is overconsumption of the national wealth.

Note from the Editor: As a reader you deserve to know the truth behind the economic disaster America faces. I’ve arranged for readers to get free copies of two books that reveal the sinister plot by the US Government to steal our wealth—a plot Merrill Jenkins, Sr. (the Original Monetary Realist) tried to expose at great risk. His books are hard to find, but these books include rare transcripts from his lectures. Click here for your free copies.

Virginia Pushing For Article V Constitutional Convention

Dear Bob,

What is your opinion about the Article V Constitutional Convention???   Is it POSSIBLE to have an Article V Convention and NOT have it develop into the Original Const. Conv.???   I need help as Va. is pushing for the new Convention.   

Madge from Va.

Dear Madge,

I don’t believe you want to open that Pandora’s box. The same progressives who are currently dominating national and State politics will take over any Article V convention. That will result in a monster you don’t want to confront. It is in fact unnecessary as all the provisions needed to restore Constitutional governance are currently found in the Constitution. What is needed is a ground up effort to remove progressives from office through the local and State governments.

Best wishes,

Bob

Justice Kennedy Needs A History Lesson

Speaking at the annual conference of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy declared the reason he serves as the Supreme Court’s “swing” vote. He considers the U.S. Constitution “a flawed document” susceptible to interpretation.

The framers, Kennedy said, “were wise enough to know that they could not foresee the injustices” of the future, “so they used general language.” He believes the framers wanted principles that could be reinterpreted by justices of the future.

Kennedy needs to study up on his history, for the framers believed quite differently.

James Wilson, signer of the Declaration of Independence, two-time member of the Continental Congress and one of the first six original Supreme Court Justices, served on the Committee of Detail, which produced the first draft of the Constitution. He said, “The first and governing maxim in the interpretation of a statute is to discover the meaning of those who made it.”

That seems to leave little wiggle room for the argument that the Constitution is a “living document.”

James Madison warned about the results of construing the Constitution as a “living document” when he wrote to Henry Lee: “I entirely concur in the propriety of resorting to the sense in which the Constitution was accepted and ratified by the nation. In that sense alone it is the legitimate Constitution. And if that is not the guide in expounding it, there may be no security for a consistent and stable, more than for a faithful exercise of its powers. If the meaning of the text be sought in the changeable meaning of the words composing it, it is evident that the shape and attributes of the Government must partake of the changes to which the words and phrases of all living languages are constantly subject. What a metamorphosis would be produced in the code of law if all its ancient phraseology were to be taken in its modern sense. And that the language of our Constitution is already undergoing interpretations unknown to its founder, will I believe appear to all unbiassed Enquirers into the history of its origin and adoption.”

Another Constitutional signatory and later Supreme Court justice, William Paterson, wrote: “What is a Constitution? It is the form of government, delineated by the mighty hand of the people, in which certain first principles of fundamental law are established. The Constitution is certain and fixed; it contains the permanent will of the people, and is the supreme law of the land; it is paramount to the power of the Legislature, and can be revoked or altered only by the authority that made it.”

The “authority that made it” is not the Supreme Court or Kennedy.

And though not involved in the drafting of the Constitution, Thomas Jefferson clearly understood the danger inherent in loose interpretations of its meaning. “On every question of construction carry ourselves back to the time when the Constitution was adopted, recollect the spirit manifested in the debates and instead of trying what meaning may be squeezed out of the text or invented against it, conform to the probable one in which it was passed.”

The Truth About Prostate-Specific Antigen (PSA)

Most urologists in conventional medicine place high emphasis on the prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test to determine prostate health. Even though researchers have placed substantial doubts on the validity and reliability of the PSA test, conventional doctors continue to use the test and rely on it to determine male prostate health.

Here is the point: The literature says a low PSA number of about four indicates a normal or healthy prostate, whereas higher numbers put prostate health in doubt and even suggests malignancy. A higher number, of course, calls for biopsy and may lead to prostate surgery.

Yet some men may have prostate malignancy with very low PSA numbers or no malignancy with very high PSA numbers.

This makes the whole test doubtful. I personally would not rely on the PSA test and would certainly refuse prostate surgery based on it — or even biopsy at my age, 81.

Many men have been ruined because of prostate surgery. At the very least, all considerations of prostate surgery should be preceded by a detailed understanding of the pros and cons of relying on the PSA test.

There is not as much objection to the digital rectal exam (DRE) because no harm can result and a trained doctor can get a reasonable appraisal of prostate health by conducting a rectal prostate exam. Swelling and inflammation may be detected in most men particularly as they age.

Usually, a man can tell if he begins to have prostate swelling or benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH) because of a noticeable restriction in his urine flow. Swelling of the prostate causes restriction of the urethra, which reduces urine flow. This becomes chronic in many men; and they may opt for green laser procedure to burn out that part of the prostate that is squeezing the urethra, restricting urine flow and creating urinary urgency, which disturbs sleep.

Green light laser is done as an outpatient surgery, but the patient is put to sleep for the procedure. Green light laser is fairly new but a better option. Be sure to select a urologist who has done several procedures.

Prostate cancer is risky for men, especially before about age 65. After that, the risk of death is reduced as age increases. The literature suggests that many men who die have prostate cancer, but it doesn’t kill them. They die of other causes. So older men should be very careful in selecting prostate surgery over doing nothing. Even younger men should not be unduly alarmed at a high PSA test because of the unreliability of the test.

Be careful of overaggressive treatments for early prostate cancer, including surgery and radiation therapy. Some side effects include urinary incontinence (inability to control urine flow), problems with bowel function, erectile dysfunction (loss of erections or erections that are inadequate for sexual intercourse) and infection.

Sad to say, there is no need for surgery anyway if it is determined that prostate cancer has already spread to other parts of the body before being detected.

Please remember that in the U.S., cancer is a multibillion-dollar industry; and establishment medicine will move quickly to capture potential cancer patients and involve them in the cancer-profit system. Fear is their major ruse.

I believe that prostate health is based on diet plus whether one is a smoker or heavy drinker. It’s obvious that unhealthy lifestyles will lead to unhealthy outcomes.

Fatty acid and stinging nettle (Cataplex F and Palmettoplex from Standard Process) are fundamental, in my view, to aid prostate health. Many chiropractors carry these products. Or use Googleto search for Standard Process to find someone near you who sells the product.

What Choice?

“Choice” is one of the many altruistic-sounding code words the elites use to enslave you gradually, without your knowledge. I have told you about these words before and listed many of them.

The progressive left claims to be all about choice. A central tenet of the Democrat Party’s message is that it alone is the protector of choice. It claims to stand as a bulwark against the “Republican’s war on women” (more code words) and those “evil” people who want to eliminate a woman’s “right” to murder their unborn (and even partially born) babies.

This ensures a woman has a “right” to make a choice about her body and whether to purge it of the unwanted organism (that moral people call a baby) through an abortion. Of course, the 57 million babies killed since Roe v. Wade had no choice. No matter. They are just collateral damage for the “greater good” (more code words).

The progressive left and its propaganda arm corporate media tout Obamacare as a victory for choice. It is anything but.

Obamacare has forcibly eliminated the healthcare insurance many people chose to have — and were happy with — because it did not fit the egalitarian parameters established by a group of collectivist, elitist bureaucrats. Those with so-called “Cadillac plans” (more code words) were forced into more expensive and less expansive plans. Those who chose to have minimal or only catastrophic coverage have been denied that choice as well. All must have a one-size-fits-all health insurance policy that is both more expensive and often more restrictive.

Obamacare has also removed the choice that employers had of whether to offer insurance as a benefit, and just how much or little coverage to offer. The progressive left has gone apoplectic over the Supreme Court’s recent Hobby Lobby decision in which the rights of the corporate owner were upheld. It was a victory, of sorts, for real choice, in that it upheld the natural right Christians have to not subsidize something they find abhorrent.

Of course, the progressive left, which turns logic on its head at every turn, claims the ruling is a defeat for choice. This is nonsense. First, Hobby Lobby already provided 16 of 20 forms of birth control in its insurance coverage in addition to paying its employees wages that are above the “living wage” (more code words) the progressive left has established as a “right.” Second, neither the owners of Hobby Lobby or any other corporation have the power to prevent women from purchasing with their own money whatever form of abortifacient they would like to buy. Nor did Hobby Lobby seek to do so. It simply sought to have the choice not to pay for it itself.

But to the progressive left, the choice of Christian business owners — and Christians in general — always take a back seat to their altruistic notions of “greater good.”

The progressive left and their corrupt corporate media enablers are curiously silent on the ways Obamacare is waging a true war on women — and men — in the healthcare field and its gradualism that will eventually enslave all Americans to Big Medicine, Big Pharma, Big Insurance and Big Brother.

Big Brother sometimes uses a carrot and sometimes uses a stick in order alter behaviors and bend people to the will of the elitist do-gooders who sit in the halls of power making choices on behalf of the “greater good.” The carrot is redistribution of wealth in the form of removing money through taxes and inflation from the producers and offering it as incentives to people, corporations, and local and State governments in order to encourage certain behaviors. The stick is the threat to remove those incentives after people, corporations, and local and State governments become dependent upon those incentives.

Such is the case with an Obamacare provision that reduces Medicaid and Medicare funding by 2 percent in 2015 to healthcare organizations that do not obtain a staff flu vaccination rate of 90 percent or better. The corporate propaganda machine is silent on this, and healthcare organizations are as well. In fact, healthcare organizations are outright lying to their employees about the reason behind the flu vaccine mandates by claiming it is for the benefit and health concerns of the patients and health workers.

Healthcare workers are not given a choice in the matter — unless one considers the false dilemma of either having the vaccine or being fired as being given a choice.

Healthcare workers are even now being fired for their choice of refusing to have harmful substances injected into their bodies for reasons that do not exist or are greatly exaggerated. By the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s own statistics, flu vaccines are at best only 50 percent to 60 percent effective. But these figures come from an organization that is part of the Big Brother swinging door that sees people going back and forth between government, the medical-industrial complex and the regulatory agencies, creating a symbiotic relationship rather than a regulatory one — an organization that routinely promotes the lie that the flu kills 36,000 people annually.

In fact, the CDC and the Food and Drug Administration are nothing more than taxpayer-funded marketing arms for the medical-industrial complex. They are used to provide government-sanctioned legitimacy to a host of fake “diseases” created in labs along with their cures: expensive pharmaceuticals and tests for diagnosis, as I’ve told you before.

According to a report in the British Medical Journal, actual annual flu deaths are really measured in the dozens, not the thousands, as the CDC claims. Of hundreds of thousands of respiratory samples taken each year from U.S. patients and tested in labs, only 16 percent test positive for the influenza virus. And according to a report by the independent research firm The Cochrane Library, the average vaccine (which is produced before the onset of flu season and based on the previous year’s strains) must be administered to 100 adults to prevent one case of influenza. If the exact strain is matched, 33 adults must be vaccinated to prevent one case of the disease.

Yet despite its minimal efficacy, healthcare workers have lost their freedom to continue in their chosen profession unless they forgo their own right of self-determination and accept to have poisons injected into their bodies.

Many are making the choice to get out of healthcare work altogether. This includes doctors as well as nurses and other healthcare professionals. The decrease in the number of healthcare professionals combined with the increase in patients abusing their “free” healthcare will necessarily limit choice and options people have for seeing their physician or having a needed procedure at their preferred medical complex.

Some nurses have formed an organization called Nurses Against Mandatory Vaccines in order to support healthcare professionals and help them to regain their right to refuse forced medical procedures.

The mandates for forced medication of healthcare workers are just the beginning of the road to serfdom that Obamacare paves. A government that provides you with something — healthcare — can just as easily take it away. It will employ the carrot first and then the stick, in order to drive you into forced behaviors.

Obamacare is a nothing more than a great transfer of wealth designed to enslave the public and enrich Big Medicine, Big Pharma and Big Insurance by giving them a mass of new customers with guaranteed payoffs from the public Treasury.

Had Obamacare been about choice, it wouldn’t be a mandate.



Note from the Editor: As you’ve just read, the Obamacare abomination doesn’t bode well for anyone.

thank-you Kevin, your article is right on and scored a bulls-eye.
the reason is to the Left/Liberal/Progressive/Socialist/Facist/Communist, people are never responsible for their own actions;
hence, guns cause violent crime, automobiles cause accidents,
and food causes obesity. they have been programmed/conditioned to think this way.

Here’s Your Get-Rich-Quick Scheme

Looking to get rich quick? Here’s the perfect scheme.

Take an unused room in your home — or better yet, buy an abandoned house, apartment building or hotel — in or near Murrieta, Calif., and house some “unaccompanied refugee minors.”

The Federal government is now doling out up to $6,054 per month tax free to house an illegal minor child, according to a Breitbart Texas report.

The terms for consideration as a potential “foster parent” are simple. All one needs is a bedroom with furniture, a driver’s license and to pass a background check. After that, you’ll need four Saturday foster parenting classes and a home inspection. Forty-five days after applying, you can have your own foster child and tax-free cash. You won’t even be responsible for the child’s healthcare because that’s “already taken care of” by the Federal government.

So if you play your cards right, you can house one illegal child and pocket almost three times the average American’s income.

And as is typical with every government program, it’s open for massive fraud and abuse. Only this time, it’s an opportunity for the 99 percent to get in on the graft. What a deal!

Roosevelt’s Hubris

Demonstrating a hubris like no U.S. President before him, Franklin Delano Roosevelt sought and was nominated for a third Presidential term on July 18, 1940. He, of course, would be elected for a third and fourth term, violating the custom or precedent established by George Washington of not serving more than two terms.

Roosevelt responded to criticism of his decision to violate established precedent by claiming he believed it was his duty to continue serving in order to guide the Nation through the growing crisis in Europe, where Adolf Hitler was expanding the Third Reich. Unfortunately, much evil has been done in the name of “duty.”

The differences in Washington and Roosevelt are stark. Washington, putting the Nation first, retired after two terms because he thought it best for the Nation and he feared being “charged… with concealed ambition” and the establishment of an imperial Presidency.

His farewell address was laced with admonitions to put America first, cherish public credit, use it as sparingly as possible and avoid “occasions of expense by cultivating peace.” He also warned to, “Observe good faith and justice towards all nations; cultivate peace and harmony with all.”

Roosevelt put himself and his aims first. Not only had he opened the Federal spigot to institute his unConstitutional New Deal — accumulating unprecedented Federal debt in the process — but he took an aggressive posture against Japan, then ignored the threat of a Japanese attack; he lied to Congress about and broke the law with his arms sales to those involved in World War II; he allowed his foreign policy to be influenced by communists; and he sided with communist Russia — first covertly, then overtly — and ultimately condemned half of Europe to decades of communist tyranny.

Thankfully, the 22nd Amendment, which prohibits a person from being elected as President more than twice, was ratified as a result.

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.
