Bob Called It


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 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.

The Two Hands Of Big Brother: Losing Our Liberties Update

I began publishing my monthly newsletter The Bob Livingston Letter™ (subscription required) in 1969. The following is an excerpt from an article in the June 1999 issue in which I commented upon the burgeoning surveillance state which even then was increasingly viewing Americans as terrorists needing to be secretly spied upon. While Edward Snowden’s “revelations” of the depth and breadth of government spying on Americans surprised many, readers of The Bob Livingston Letter™ were long ago alerted to government spying programs. And, curiously, 15 years after the fact, Attorney General Eric Holder has just announced he’s going to “revive” the same Clinton-era anti-terror task force, as if the National Security Agency’s domestic spying program is inadequate to the task.

Fickle And Stupid?

I began publishing my monthly newsletter The Bob Livingston Letter™ in 1969. The following is an excerpt from the May 1998 issue in which I chronicle the Republican Party’s fickle and hypocritical attitudes with regard to preserving Americans’ liberty. The more things change, it seems, the more they stay the same.

The Republican Party has well earned the appellation “the Stupid Party,” based on its abandonment of moral and genuine conservative principles as well as its inability to lead in Congress. Not that the Democrats are any better, mind you, because their claims to morality and principle are even more ludicrous!

The abysmal Republican failures in Congress, most notably their inability to see justice done in their hearings on Waco and Ruby Ridge and the IRS, are almost as numerous as Bill Clinton’s offenses and escapades…

Privacy News

I began publishing my monthly newsletter The Bob Livingston Letter™ (subscription required) in 1969. The following is an excerpt from the April 2000 issue. While Edward Snowden’s “revelations” of the depth and breadth of government spying on Americans surprised many, readers of The Bob Livingston Letter™ were alerted to government spying programs 14 years ago.

Clinton Budget Funds Massive Police Wiretaps: President Clinton’s proposed budget includes millions to allow government electronic snooping on civilians, and the NSA appears to be heavily involved. One of the heftiest increases, from $15 million to $240 million, will pay phone companies to rewire their networks to facilitate police wiretapping.

The Bear Market In Stocks Is Worse Than You Think!

I began publishing my monthly newsletter The Bob Livingston Letter™ (subscription required) in 1969. The following is an excerpt from the March 2001 issue. The article was actually written in February. Mid-March saw the Dow drop 821 points in a week and the S&P 500 lose 7 percent. A year later, the Dow had lost 28 percent and many stocks had gone bust, as I predicted.

Anybody who knows anything about the Federal Reserve and Mr. Greenspan believes that by the lowering of interest rates plus printing money that recession/depression can be averted. They also believe that lower interest rates and new money can restart the bull market in stocks.

War On Terrorism? Behind The Mask

I began publishing my monthly newsletter The Bob Livingston Letter™ (subscription required) in 1969. The following is an excerpt from the February 2002 issue in which I predicted that those professing to be Christians, promoting patriotism, opposing the state’s growing tyranny and opposing abortion would be considered “terrorists.” Since then, the Federal government has issued missives that label Christians, Tea Party members, veterans, gun owners, preparedness advocates and supporters of Ron Paul’s candidacy as potential terrorists.

The number one goal of all governments historically is to control and dominate their own citizens. The more deceptively it can be done, the more complete and long-lasting the tyranny.

Privacy

I began publishing my monthly newsletter The Bob Livingston Letter™ (subscription required) in 1969. The following is an excerpt from the January 1996 issue in which I discussed the dangers of the growing surveillance state.

Privacy is directly linked to personal survival. You can’t survive, and you can’t be private while being totally dependent on the system. Since we can’t find another country, our goal is to survive with privacy right here under the nose of the government. Privacy and survival is a moral and legal right, and in fact, a duty to posterity. Our greatest challenge to privacy and survival is to escape the propaganda of government and its politicians. The amount of personal freedom that you have in the next few years in America will be in direct relationship to how sophisticated you become in techniques of privacy and survival.

Panics And Crashes

I began publishing my monthly newsletter The Bob Livingston Letter™ (subscription required) in 1969. The following is an excerpt from the December 1998 issue in which I warned of the danger of the dot.com bubble. Just 18 months later, the bubble burst. By the way, we are reaching this same point once again thanks to QE.

Our economic system is simply a confidence game. Our credit-based monetary system requires confidence to remain in a positive mode. Confidence is a perception of reality no matter what reality actually is. When money is credit, it is 100% confidence. Inflation can turn on a dime into black hole deflation.

Politics

I began publishing my monthly newsletter The Bob Livingston Letter™ (subscription required) in 1969. The following is an excerpt from the November 1996 issue in which I discussed politics and the long-term Muslim influence on government.

The status quo of the political monopoly remains. The government wins again.

Whoever wins, you lose. Politicians are politicians under any brand. They are paid and pensioned by Washington. Where do you think that their loyalty lies?

Disarmament Comes By Words And Psychological Warfare

I began publishing my monthly newsletter The Bob Livingston Letter™ (subscription required) in 1969. The following is an excerpt from the October 1996 issue in which I discussed passive and overt efforts to disarm Americans. The same efforts continue today.

Can you imagine the early American pioneers starting out across the country without their guns? The west would never have been settled by white man without guns.
