Bob Called It


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.

What Governments Want

(I began publishing my monthly newsletter The Bob Livingston Letter™ (subscription required) in 1969. The following is an excerpt from the September 2004 issue in which I outlined the goals of the U.S. and U.K. governments. We see that much of this has taken place or is currently taking place.

I want to give you a list of things and thoughts that all governments today want and are skillfully maneuvering for, especially in the United States and the United Kingdom. There is no particular order or priority.

When Democracy Flourishes

(I began publishing my monthly newsletter The Bob Livingston Letter™ (subscription required) in 1969. The following is an excerpt from the August 1997 issue in which I recognized that republicanism was already lost, the vote was meaningless and being recognized as such, the middle class was being destroyed, the stock market — propped up by the Federal Reserve’s money printing and laws driving private money into the stock market via individual retirement accounts — was a bubble and that the evolution toward democracy would spur legislation sanctioning and promoting depraved behaviors.)

Most of you are already informed enough to know that the American nation was founded as a republic, not a democracy. A republic is a limited, representative, participatory government. A republic is the almost natural result of public order built upon the individual, the family, the Church, and business and many, many private associations and relations. Democracy is not necessarily a representative government, but it is an illusory participatory government. People tend to think that democracy is evolved or modern republicanism. Democracy is truly a veil for a wicked government that places all matters, including personal and private ones, into the public view, for public legislation.

Euthanasia: ‘Public Policy’

(I began publishing my monthly newsletter The Bob Livingston Letter™ http://www.boblivingstonletter.com/ (subscription required) in 1969. The following is an excerpt from the July 1996 issue. Now we know that included in the Obamacare deathcare law, the misnamed Patient Protection and Affordable Healthcare Act, is a provision to establish panels that will ration healthcare treatments to older patients based on their “worth” to society (i.e., death panels). In other words, euthanasia has moved from unofficial to official public policy.)

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.
