How To Win The War For Your Mind
PHOTOS.COM

All battles, all wars, all fistfights and bar brawls, all conflicts in every place and in every time (except those conflicts in which both sides answer to the same puppeteer) begin and end as battles of the mind. No struggle is determined on strength of arms alone.

In fact, the technologically advanced adversary with all his fancy firepower is often more vulnerable than his low-tech counterparts. This fact is, of course, counterintuitive to our Western manner of thinking, which teaches us to believe that the man with the bigger gun (or the bigger predator drone) always wins. Sadly, we have had to suffer through multiple defeats and overdrawn occupations in Asia to learn otherwise. One of the great unspoken truths of our era is the reality that the modernization of warfare has changed little the manner in which wars are won. Since the beginning of history, intelligence, force of will and guiding principles are the dominant factors in any campaign.

Therefore, it only stands to reason that the most vital battle any of us will ever face is the psychological battle; for success in the mind will determine success in all other endeavors.

Unfortunately, very few people ever consider the importance of the mind war, let alone know how to defend themselves against psychological attack. As with any method of self-defense, constant training is required.

For the past century, at least in the United States, a subversive and secret cold war has been waged against the people in the form of psychological subjugation. This cold war is designed to weaken our resolve, our heritage, our self-belief, our confidence and our integrity in preparation for a “hot war” against our time-honored Constitutional rights. The power elite know well that the most effective strategy for victory in any battle is to convince your enemy to surrender before the fight even begins. Today, the American populace is being conditioned to lie down and die a mental death, to give up the inner war, so that when the outer war comes, they will already be defeated.

Corrupt governments rely heavily on what they call “psyops,” which are primarily propaganda initiatives meant to demoralize their target (usually the citizenry). In the case of a despotic regime, psyops involves the insinuation of lies, half-truths, threats and brutality that is choreographed to elicit a very specific response. It is used to instigate strong emotional responses en masse that will work in favor of the oligarchy. The following guidelines can shield you from the arrows of deceit, allowing you to maintain control and avoid being unconsciously influenced to labor against your own cause:

Do Not Fear Hypothetical Dangers

Fear is the weapon of choice when it comes to totalitarian proponents. Conquering armies and bureaucracies are notorious for exaggerating their strength and numbers in order to squelch the fighting spirit of those they intend to rule. Genghis Kahn, for instance, used the tactic of exaggerated numbers, along with vicious genocide, to strike terror in regions he had not yet attempted to overtake. Upon his arrival, the Mongol hordes had received such a reputation (some of it fabricated) that many regions surrendered immediately without question.

When becoming an activist against a criminal establishment, it is very common to be the target of fear campaigns. Today, those of us in the liberty movement hear warnings from “random” concerned parties constantly telling us that our efforts are “all for nothing,” that we are “making ourselves targets.” That the globalist system is far too strong and far too advanced to be defeated.

Their hope is to make us afraid of hypothetical situations which can neither be confirmed nor denied. To undo this tactic, you must remain focused on your objective regardless of the possible danger. That is to say, the strength of the enemy, whether real or fantasy, is irrelevant. It is meaningless. Goliath is nothing but an obstacle, and all obstacles can be dealt with. Move forward toward the objective and never stop.

Do Not Be Distracted By Minor Inconveniences And Personal Problems

At the height of communist power in East Germany, the Stasi secret police deployed a tactic which they called “Zersetzung,” which means to “corrode” or “undermine.” The Zersetzung policy involved the use of subtle manipulations of a particular person’s life in order to interfere with his ability to function normally and participate fully in dissenting activities. The Stasi would send agents to a person’s home to rearrange items or fake a break-in. Often, they would attempt to create emotional conflicts between the dissident and his wife, family and friends and to damage business relationships. The purpose is to force the target to divert his attention from his political and social work to more minor inconveniences.

Personal firestorms are destructive only when you give them too much credence and attention. Some people become utterly obsessed with their own private soap operas, and this weakness is often exploited by government elements.

The truth is, our home lives and the tensions in them are secondary when it comes to defending our principles and our culture against enslavement and oblivion. Woman troubles, family arguments and invasions into our private lives are not important. Only the mission is important; and in the liberty movement, our mission is to awaken the public, disrupt the indoctrination of the masses and, if necessary, physically remove the elites from power. Family and friends who get in the way or are manipulated into getting in the way should be ignored.

Do Not Be Seduced By Gifts     

Tyrants love to offer gifts to the populace, especially at the onset of their rise to dominance. It may be the promise of new jobs, better infrastructure, free healthcare, more food, more safety or even free cellphones. The point is to entice citizens with something for nothing, or at least the lie of something for nothing. If a government official (or anyone else for that matter) is pouring gifts into your lap, it is time to become suspicious.

Governments do not “pay” for the gifts you receive. You pay for the gifts you receive either through taxation or inflation. Free goodies should never influence the mind warrior to endear himself to any bureaucratic or corporate entity. Never allow yourself to be bought.

Never Trust The Media Machine; Always Verify Information

There is no such thing as “objective journalism” in the mainstream media anymore. What you see and hear is not the truth but a facsimile of the truth, twisted to benefit the establishment alone. Media outlets today do not investigate events. Instead, they obstruct investigation by promoting only one side of every story and attacking anyone who questions their asserted narrative. The “official version” of any news story is almost always a fabrication that protects the oligarchy from harm.

No one who considers himself an intelligent human being should accept the official narrative at face value. It is important to question always that which we are told and to investigate using independent or original sources. Never allow yourself to be “taught.” Always examine the facts on your own.

Do Not Concern Yourself With Ridicule

Our personal pride is not important. Safeguarding our egos is not important. Trying to please everyone all the time is impossible and also not important. Ridicule is used not only to discredit activists; it is also used to make them question their own resolve. If you cannot be embarrassed or browbeaten, then you cannot be made afraid and you cannot be defeated by mere words.

Accept The Risk Before Confronting The Enemy

I am still amazed by those dissenters and freedom fighters who act as though they are surprised when the potential wrath of the system is directed at them. Did they not understand the risk when entering into the battle? Did they really believe it wouldn’t be all that bad?

In any conflict against a larger and more ruthless opponent, always assume that you will have to go through hell to accomplish anything. Accept that your life will no longer be peaceful or comfortable. Know that you may not survive to see the fruits of your efforts. Realize that you may have to walk through fire and embrace pain. Otherwise, you will remain a pathetic and laughably inadequate fighter in the mind war.

Understand Your Own Weaknesses  

Pretending as if you have no weaknesses is the best way to help your enemy. If you are prideful, your overconfidence will be used against you. If you are spiteful, your jealousy will be exploited to distract you. If you are easily angered, your rage will be used to lure you into destroying yourself. Examine yourself as deeply and as thoroughly as you would the enemy. Though it might sound like a cliché, you actually can become far worse an enemy to your own cause than any army your opponent can muster.

Do Not Buy Into Petty Authority

Perhaps it is in our tribal nature, but many people seem to suffer from an insatiable desire for hierarchy and leadership — even if that leadership is based on falsehoods. The ultimate protection against corruption is to become one’s own leader, rather than waiting around for a miraculously infallible overseer to guide the way for you. Relying on others to choose your path for you opens the door to having your right to choose removed from the picture completely.

Petty authority is authority derived from false pretenses, rather than earned respect and recognition. No man, regardless of title or uniform, is above the truth; and he is certainly not more worthwhile than you. If anyone wants to determine whether you go left or right, he should be put to the most stringent tests imaginable. He should have to prove that he has your best interests at heart.

Acknowledge The Power Of Symbolism And Myth

Oligarchs use theater and pageantry to influence the collective unconscious because the human mind gravitates toward rituals that feed our inherent need for myth and symbol. Psychologist Carl Jung often referred to the inborn symbolic processes of the psyche as “archetypes,” which exist in the art, dreams and spiritualism of every society regardless of time, place, religion or culture. Knowing these universal symbols and how we react to them emotionally allows a person to prevent himself from being conditioned or influenced by them.

Not all fantastic events in history are spontaneous. Some are staged as a means to appeal to a particular side of a nation’s collective psyche. These “false flag” actions very often revolve around a symbol that is culturally valued. The construction or destruction of this symbolic edifice, famous person, social mechanism or loved representation of the future leaves a lasting and deep-rooted impression on thousands, if not millions, of people. They become emotionally invested in the event — frantic, fearful or furious — without having the slightest inkling why. In the end, they can be conned into acting in disastrous ways just to appease the inner imbalance. They can be led to war, to enslavement and to death — all on the promise of preventing a myth from appearing or disappearing.

The secret is to explore our inner life with more vigor than we waste on outer fantasy. By discovering our own internal myth and, thus, our own individuality, we make ourselves impervious to false-flag conditioning. Our emotions remain within our control, our biases become non-existent and our fears become irrelevant. The theater of the mind loses its power; and from that point on, we choose our own destinies.

Facing down an adversary with arms or with fists is an easy thing to grasp. Facing down a lie, or an idea meant to destroy one’s mental capacity for resistance, is incredibly complex. When an opponent attempts to play mind games, though, it is a sure sign that he does not have the capacity to thwart you with physical strength alone. The fact that our government and the power structure behind it has so desperately relied on such strategies for so many years shows that they believe they cannot enact centralized authority over our Nation and undo our freedom imperative on the shoulders of military indifference and ignorance. No gun, no matter how big, will get them what they want. So they continue to play the game.

In order to prevail, we must make ourselves immune to the game. We must walk away, separating ourselves from it completely. We must relinquish all unnecessary fear, doubt and hatred and do what we know needs to be done. If we cannot take lordship of our own psychological world, we are doomed to failure in every other fight that envelops us. Without impervious will, we cannot overcome, and we cannot find peace.

    Wow, all of that to say absolutely NOTHING!!!!!!!

    No doubt you will be given high praise for this nonsense…….and why it is nonsense
    is easy enough to demonstrate……it requires one question.

    Please identify these “myths and symbols” you are referring to?

    Then we will know what your myth preferences are, and which “other myths” you
    feel threatened by………at this point you will actually be saying something, and you
    will also offend the “other minds” like yours that do not agree……..

    Of course the main myth is that “minds” are actually capable of “intelligent reasoning”, which unfortunately has no empirical evidence to support it.

    You are ruled by your “biology”, your brain is structured as massive parrallel processing
    unit, whose primary function and ability is “pattern recognition” for the purpose of
    threat assessment response ( survival ) where the proper application is to react to
    “potential threats” whether all not they are real or imagined, and if you manage to
    do this well enough, to reproduce by whatever means necessary, which brings into
    play the use of deception and self deception to realize these goals.

    Intelligent reasoning is possible, but it is not inherent or required, and the primary
    step in this process is the acceptance of the REALITY just stated, or the product of
    other attempts of “logically reasoned” intellect, will be isolated and ultimately self
    contradiction………….because this reasoning will be forced to comply with whatever
    mythology one has chosen…….to DENY…….the REALITY, you have just been
    confronted with.

    ” That all men are created equal? ”

    ” That economics is valid? ”

    ” That capitalism works? ”

    ” That humans are intelligent? ”

    ” That religion is required for morality ? ”

    ” with liberty and justice for all ? ”

    ” That we are civilized ? ”

    One can continue indefinitely, and once you choose a “myth”……..your “nothing”
    becomes something……and your “non intelligent mind” will be in conflict with
    those who do not accept your “myths”……..

    Politicians master the art of trying to say nothing to get elected and re-elected,
    or to determine the “myth majority” of their “district”………

    • GALT

      So very predictable, as you can see Bob? ( probably not a good idea to let
      anyone actually see this, huh? especially since it has been sitting here so long,
      of course, that anyone would actually notice would be even MORE interesting? )

        You have a BRAIN……..what it evolved to do is described above, and this
        evolution was completed 50,000 years ago.

        Can your BRAIN be controlled????…….who could dispute that, you all provide
        evidence for this every day.

        When you become “intelligent”, your BRAIN will no longer be “controlled”.

        Take control……become INTELLIGENT!

        ( first post partially repeated and paraphrased )

        “The Master said….If names are not correct, language is not in accordance with the truth of things. If language is not in accordance with the truth of things, affairs cannot be carried on to success……..Therefor a superior man considers it necessary that the names he uses may be spoken appropriately. What the superior man requires, is just that in his words, there may be nothing incorrect.”

        Galt,

        Neutron repulsion [1,2] in the core of the Sun is the source of energy that

        a.) Made our elements
        b.) Birthed the solar system
        c.) Sustained the origin and evolution of life
        d.) Causes climate changes and solar eruptions [3]
        d.) Endowed mankind with inalienable rights to self-govern, and
        e.) The creative talents displayed by artists, musicians and scientists.

        Neutron repulsion powers an outflow of energy and particles from the centers of stars and galaxies, as Nature acknowledged today from the center of the the Milky Way [4].

        With kind regards,

        Did you have a point?

        And it would be relevant to what?

      • Right Brain Thinker

        GALT asks, “Did you have a point? And it would be relevant to what?”

        It appears that Oliver has no relevant point. The Apeiron Journal (1) appears to be a wing-nut “wacko physics” site (on-line only), the “dropbox” reference (2) only means it has been submitted to Nature (and will likely be shredded rather than published), and reference (4) is just an online blog/commentary site of no significance. Oliver is just wasting our time.

      @Galt

      Still more elitist diatribes from Galt and not a word of sense backed by tangible evidence.

      By “myths and symbols” I am referring to what Carl Jung called Archetypes, which are inborn psychological qualities that are common to ALL cultures and people’s regardless of time or place and which span continents despite zero diffusion of those ideas to the target society. These symbols have been proven through decades of extensive clinical study, and are not debatable. I welcome you to read Jung’s works on Archetypes and learn something.

      What you are espousing is essentially the Blank Slate theory coupled with non-determination, which has been proven incorrect in nearly every scientific field. There is far more to the human mind than animal instinct.

      I recommend the works of MIT professor Steven Pinker. Read them thoroughly because you are WAY behind the curve. He proves without a shadow of a doubt that human thought is far more than purely a reaction to environmental conditions.

      Jung found that archetypal symbolism was inborn, and that it included dualities. Meaning, good and evil are inherent functions of the human psyche, not products of environment, and the existence of these dualities gives us the inborn ability to CHOOSE, rather than being dominated by pure instinct or environment.

      Politicians and elitists attempt to manipulate inherent symbolism and myth by creating events in the tangible world that reflect the myth in a negative or dishonest manner. However, they are only successful with people who do not understand the inherent nature of symbol. All a person need do is educate himself on how the manipulation functions, and thus, shield himself from it.

      As for your narrow questions:

      1) Are you saying that all men should NOT be treated equally under the law? Are you saying that some men should be treated unequally? And if so, who?

      2) The “validity” of economics is an existential question that you will never be able to answer. What remains is that which is natural, and human trade is a natural function of human life. Even the most primitive of social systems utilizes trade. So, my question to you is, show me a human system devoid of economics.

      3) Who said anything about capitalism? I promote free markets. Unfortunately, you are too uneducated to know the difference. “Capitalism” is a catch phrase started by Communist pundits, not free market proponents. Besides that, we haven’t lived in a free market system since 1913, so unless you are over 100 years old, you have no experience of it.

      4) I suppose intelligence is relative, including one’s definition of what intelligence is. Some people prize logic and rationalism, but what about emotional intelligence, artistic intelligence, physical intelligence, etc? You may have your own idea of what intelligence is, but really Galt, who cares?

      5) Who said that religion is required for morality? I certainly didn’t.

      6) Liberty and justice are inborn archetypes. They have always been sought after by humanity and they always will be. They are ideals that we strive for. Don’t you want liberty and justice for all, or are you a totalitarian?

      7) A civilized society is one which abides by inherent individual conscience. Our moral compass is inborn, as Jung and many others have proven. But, because we also have inherent choice, we are able to abandon that moral compass. It may be because of ignorance, or because of malice. Therefore, man is civilized when he respects and understands his inner contents. He is uncivilized when he ignores or disregards his inner contents.

      • GALT

        Still more elitist diatribes from Galt and not a word of sense backed by tangible evidence.

        Excellent beginning Brandon, unfortunately that would be a “conclusion”…….and as it stands a logical fallacy……but let us see if your “evidence” gets you to your claimed “conclusion”?

        What you are espousing is essentially the Blank Slate theory coupled with non-determination, which has been proven incorrect in nearly every scientific field. There is far more to the human mind than animal instinct.

        As much as appreciate your help in telling me what I said and what it means and why it is in correct…….you would actually have to be able to comprehend and respond to what I said:

        Of course the main myth is that “minds” are actually capable of “intelligent reasoning”, which unfortunately has no empirical evidence to support it.

        You are ruled by your “biology”, your brain is structured as massive parrallel processing unit, whose primary function and ability is “pattern recognition” for the purpose of threat assessment response ( survival ) where the proper application is to react to “potential threats” whether all not they are real or imagined, and if you manage to do this well enough, to reproduce by whatever means necessary, which brings into play the use of deception and self deception to realize these goals.

        Intelligent reasoning is possible, but it is not inherent or required, and the primary step in this process is the acceptance of the REALITY just stated, or the product of other attempts of “logically reasoned” intellect, will be isolated and ultimately self contradiction………….because this reasoning will be forced to comply with whatever mythology one has chosen…….to DENY…….the REALITY, you have just been confronted with.

        That doesn’t look like a blank slate, but you are more than welcome to demonstrate any aspect of what is described as being NOT TRUE?

        I recommend the works of MIT professor Steven Pinker. Read them thoroughly because you are WAY behind the curve. He proves without a shadow of a doubt that human thought is far more than purely a reaction to environmental conditions.

        Pinker addresses many specific ‘blank slate’ arguments throughout the text, but his main point remains consistent – experience cannot substantially alter the basic structure and functioning of the human brain.

        Doesn’t seem to be any conflict there, Brandon, since what I describe is the structure and function of the brain, which I simplified and repeated as:You have a BRAIN……..what it evolved to do is described above, and this evolution was completed 50,000 years ago.

        But you may find the Social Conquest of Earth by E.O. Wilson and the Folly of Fools: The Logic of Deceit and Self-deception in Human life by Robert Trivers useful in expanding your present understanding of what has been said and its implications: rather than attempting to transform it to that which your own very creative interpretation which is FALSE, in order to “argue” against it………( didn’t you have a name for this? )

        Jung found that archetypal symbolism was inborn, and that it included dualities. Meaning, good and evil are inherent functions of the human psyche, not products of environment, and the existence of these dualities gives us the inborn ability to CHOOSE, rather than being dominated by pure instinct or environment.

        That is very inventive of him and is the problem…….which is actually the point……….but it may take you awhile to sort out what it actually means………because you do have an understanding of the damage and harm that can result from their manipulation…..but you have to keep in mind that the species is 195,000 years old…….so taking the “mechanism” and “function”…….feel free to describe “good and evil” or any other “duality” as they would exist, say for the first 185,000 years?

        As for your narrow questions:

        Not narrow enough it would seem, as you were asked to identify which of the myths listed you believe in, and/or argue why they were not myths if you did “believe” them. A simple task, no?

        ” That all men are created equal? ”

        ” 1) Are you saying that all men should NOT be treated equally under the law? Are you saying that some men should be treated unequally? And if so, who?

        HHHMMMM…..so are you saying it is a myth? It seems to be…..since you are suggesting that “the law” is necessary for men to be equal? I wouldn’t want to put words in your mouth if that is NOT what you mean. ( a distinction you obviously do NOT recognize? )

        ” That economics is valid? ”

        2) The “validity” of economics is an existential question that you will never be able to answer. What remains is that which is natural, and human trade is a natural function of human life. Even the most primitive of social systems utilizes trade. So, my question to you is, show me a human system devoid of economics.

        But is has been answered see “Economics Unmasked”, “Debt: The First 5000 Years.”and “Econned.”……if you have evidence of trade for the first 185,000 that would be useful……and you are correct…..it is inextricably linked to “humans”……..and it doesn’t work.

        But your answer is: You don’t know if it’s a myth or maybe it is impossible to know? The books will help you decide.

        ” That capitalism works? ”

        3) Who said anything about capitalism? I promote free markets. Unfortunately, you are too uneducated to know the difference. “Capitalism” is a catch phrase started by Communist pundits, not free market proponents. Besides that, we haven’t lived in a free market system since 1913, so unless you are over 100 years old, you have no experience of it.

        I’m sorry Brandon for not structuring the “exercise” in a form which is familiar to you….I should have said….the following is a list of commonly accepted “truisms”, please identify which ones are “myths”, which are not, and explain your answer.

        Is 1913 significant to free markets? By the way the is an excerpt of “Econned” below……which deals with “free markets”…..

        What part of whatever it is you mean by “free markets” was not in play in 1929 or 2007?

        ” That humans are intelligent? ”

        4) I suppose intelligence is relative, including one’s definition of what intelligence is. Some people prize logic and rationalism, but what about emotional intelligence, artistic intelligence, physical intelligence, etc?

        So your answer is maybe it’s a myth?

        You may have your own idea of what intelligence is, but really Galt, who cares?

        Funny you should say that Brandon, because I read this article by this guy who said:

        “Acknowledge The Power Of Symbolism And Myth”

        One wonders by what magical mechanism one would determine that? And if myths ( thing that are not real? ) have POWER, would those who believed in them be “intelligent” or “untelligent”?

        ” That religion is required for morality ? ”

        5) Who said that religion is required for morality? I certainly didn’t.

        Who said you did? So, it would be a myth?

        ” with liberty and justice for all ? ”

        6) Liberty and justice are inborn archetypes. They have always been sought after by humanity and they always will be. They are ideals that we strive for. Don’t you want liberty and justice for all, or are you a totalitarian?
        So, not a myth? Evidence for this in the first 185,000 years? And just for fun……in which condition would one expect to find more “liberty and justice”…….pre-agricultural conditions or post?

        By the source of this is the pledge of allegiance……equal to the claim on the Supreme Court Building of “equal justice under law”…….how’s that going?

        ” That we are civilized ? ”

        7) A civilized society is one which abides by inherent individual conscience. Our moral compass is inborn, as Jung and many others have proven. But, because we also have inherent choice, we are able to abandon that moral compass. It may be because of ignorance, or because of malice. Therefore, man is civilized when he respects and understands his inner contents. He is uncivilized when he ignores or disregards his inner contents.

        So, yes and no? Well you have a marvelous imagination, especially when it comes to hearing what has actually been said……..because all I have done is provide a very simple an accurate description of your brain and it’s evolution to perform it’s primary function.

        If you can disassociate any aspect of human behavior from this description……..be my guest. To assist you, I will add another very simple an irrefutable and universal idea………and TRUTH!

        “You have the single unalienable right granted you by the fact of your existence to continue to attempt to survive.”

        So we share a common mechanism and a common right…….directed at a common purpose……….why is it that, civilization has not produced a beneficial result for all concerned?

        Could it be that “mythologies” have misdirected us from this “common reality” to replace it with “others” which denies this simplicity and that we are not intelligent enough to see it?

        Do you understand the question, Brandon?

        “The Master said….If names are not correct, language is not in accordance with the truth of things. If language is not in accordance with the truth of things, affairs cannot be carried on to success……..Therefor a superior man considers it necessary that the names he uses may be spoken appropriately. What the superior man requires, is just that in his words, there may be nothing incorrect.”

        “The Master said,…..Without knowing the force of words, it is impossible to know men.”

        Confucious 551 -479 B.C.

          Wrong, wrong, wrong GALT. You need God, Jesus, and the Bible for morals and ethics, since these precepts are what western societies are based on. To believe differently is just plain ignorant and not the ways of an intellectual.

          “Without God there could be no American form of government, nor an American way of life. Recognition of the Supreme being is the first, the most basic, expression of Americanism. And thus with God’s help, it will continue to be.”

          Dwight D. Eisenhower

          I guess that President Eisenhower had it right and you are wrong. You keep talking about myths? Some myths are Santa Claus, Rudolph, the Easter Bunny, evolution, the Big Bang Theory, a gay gene, and that there is no God. All of these are myths, but you seem to believe in some of them.

          “Give a man a fish, he’ll eat for a day. Teach him how to fish, and he’ll eat for a lifetime.”

          Confucius

          IOW, you are only eating a day at a time by being given a fish. If you would study and learn what this great country was founded on, then you would be eating for a lifetime, as far as history knowledge goes. You seem to quote Confucius a lot, are you a beliuever in that faith? There are still some in China and North Korea, but it is a very outdated belief. Neeeeed to study a lot more if you want people to believe you, also tell the truth. But alas! I don’t see you doing these things. FOR GOD AND COUNTRY! 하나님하고 나라를 위해서!

          You need both love of country and faith in God to be a patriot. This leaves you out.

        or refuse to “incorporate” it……….can be found in the documentary

        sam maybe Brandon can help you…….I only have time for the “potentially intelligent”,
        but not to worry, when there are enough of us……..we should be able to help you
        to not cause yourself harm, or anyone else. while under the “influence” of your
        “mythology”.

        • sam1966

          Care to cite a source on this GALT or is this just another ignorant attempt at misdirection? Sorry boy, but read your Bible and have your dense libturd mind awakened. Remember, a man who refuses to learn has a stagnant mind. I do believe Francis Bacon said that. Time for you to listen and wise up. Here is another lie from your “messiah”:

      • GALT

        Cite a source for what?

      • GALT

        P.S. F.Y.I. Sam….the reason for the Confucious quote is for the meaning contained
        with in it. ( you may get it , you may not…….intelligence is required. )

        Meta physical philosophies are defined by certain elements, if these
        elements are not present, the “philosophy” is not metaphysical.

        Confucianism does not contain any of these elements, nor does it require
        faith………it is therefor neither a metaphysical philosophy nor a religion.

        ( it does however provide “moral guidance” for those who rely on it, which
        would seem to dispose of the “religious” requirement myth by means
        other than the application of logical reasoning. )

        As for your use ( attempted ), clearly it does not have any serious modern day
        application……as teaching a man to fish, would not result in what you imply,
        one would need a license to fish, or access to the ocean…….one would need to
        be aware of the dangers regarding toxicity, and of course, since we are killing off
        this resource it would have limited useful life, especially if everyone had to
        rely on it as a means of survival.

        That is has anything to with………

        If you would study and learn what this great country was founded on, then you would be eating for a lifetime, as far as history knowledge goes.

        That is a non sequitur unless you are prepared to do some serious work to
        make the connection…….and the evidence so far is that you have no
        serious understanding about actual history and its meaning for this country
        or any other country or about anything else……….but keep trying, you can
        learn from failure……..if it doesn’t result in discovering what to do, it can
        identify those things you should not do……..provided one of them doesn’t
        kill you, when it does fail. ( see Edison, Thomas Alva )

        All governments, economic systems and civilization itself, have failed and are
        continuing to fail, although in this case…..it maybe failing for the final time.

        But at least we know that you still have not discerned the ” Point” of my use
        of Confucious…….but it was intended for brandon anyway, so no harm done.

    • http://google rose

      Galt, you ramble on as if you really have anything of value to say. Unfortunately, you do not have the intelligence or spirituality to understand what Brandon is saying.
      Thank you Brandon for this very insightful article.

      • GALT

        Brandon has said nothing, he is still saying nothing, and since my post was the first one
        here, ( but not available for viewing ) it predicted that he would be granted high praise,
        by those like your self who have no clue what intelligence is, or or what saying something
        of substance entails.

        This was not a difficult prediction to make because Brandon makes a habit of doing
        this…….but since he has actually made the attempt to defend his post, any number of
        observations can be made………..

        1.) He uses terms which he has no assigned or meaningful value, elitist, myth, symbols,
        archtypes………..but he can not identify them when asked.

        2.) He does have to ability to actually comprehend what he reads or the tasks he is
        being asked to perform…………

        3.) He cites use of logical fallacies, but these are simply his lack of comprehending
        what he has just read, and then transforming it to a meaning which is convenient
        for him, so that he can argue against it, which is logical fallacy.

        4.) He has given an indication that he does subscribe to some type of christian
        myth, and as predicted………once he provided any substance at all regarding
        anything….. he would be attacked by those who did not share that myth, but he
        also knows his audience……..which is why he took great pains to “say nothing”.

        5.) While his post contains all manner of behavior which is required to achieve
        victory in the “psychological battle” which is at the core of his “say nothing” post
        when he is called to account….he demonstrates that he possesses
        none of these abilities, nor much of anything else in the way of debate or
        intelligent reasoning skills……..

        6.) He has also confirmed the one of the other myths he has subscribed to
        is the “federal reserve” myth……..and that “free markets” were somehow
        affected by the creation of the FED in 1913, and whatever “free markets” are
        to him…..has not been actually identified……..and while this was a brief glimpse,
        it suggests that his knowledge of history, causes and effects, is extremely
        suspect……….

        7.) brandon’s actual purpose for being here, has nothing to do with this post,
        he is hyping his business……..and this is simply a means of attracting customers,
        whether it will work or is viable will depend on whether you are so impressed
        with his ” post about nothing” that you will investigate his “business’ and become
        a customer…….under the circumstances, this would not appear to be a high
        probability result………..

      • http://www.sosoflibertymontana.com Rich

        Brandon, I just finished reading your article “It’s Not America Anymore” and “How To Win The War For Your Mind” both insightful but I’m not writing you to pad you ego, rather to challenge your very failure to head your own advise.

        You said all “conflicts…begin and end as battles of the mind” and “They would wrap the truth in a Gordian Knot of misdirection and fabrication so elaborate that they felt certain the majority of people would surrender, giving up long before they ever finished unraveling the deceit. The goal was not to destroy the truth, but to hide it in plain sight.” (Disinformation: How It Works).

        You also said, “The truth is precious. It is sad that there are so many in our society who have lost respect for it; people who have traded in their conscience and their soul for temporary financial comfort while sacrificing the stability and balance of the rest of the country in the process….Disinformation does not only threaten our insight into the workings of our world; it makes us vulnerable to fear, misunderstanding, and doubt: all things that lead to destruction. It can drive good people to commit terrible atrocities against others, or even against themselves. Without a concerted and organized effort to diffuse mass-produced lies, the future will look bleak indeed.”.

        To this end I now ask you are you an “American” ? If your answer is YES, (and only you know the truth) then let me say this; “America” is a set of continents divided into 2, “North and South America”. I, (I will only guess as you) live in “North America” with apx 529 million other people across independent sovereign states, (Antigua and Barbuda,Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, Canada, Costa Rica, Cuba, Commonwealth of Dominica, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Grenada, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Jamaica, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Trinidad and Tobago, United States) of which I live (and I hope you as well) in the “United Sates of “AMERICA””. The fact that our countries name is the “United States of America” serves as evidence that our country is a compact of “independent sovereign States” (50 at last count) agreeing to work in a “united” effort to some end.

        My point if you missed it is that for at least the last 110 years there has been a systematic war of “Disinformation” of what I call smoky truth working to ERASE the FACT that I’m 1st a “MONTANAN” (one of the 50) which by that fact makes me a citizen of the “United States of America” and not just any “American” because, if I am just any “American” then are not citizens of say “Mexico” “American”? or say citizens of El Salvador “American” ? This as you well pointed out is a systematic an purposeful effort to erase the foundation of identity of who we are and why my State (Montana) and our Country (United States of America) was founded. To this end makes the compact (Constitution of the United States of America) become less important to the idea we are all citizens of the WORLD and should not believe ourselves to any different then any other citizen in the world.

        Therefore, I would ask you to re-read your article “It’s Not America Anymore” with this “smoke” cleared to reveal the “truth” of why it’s not America anymore ! ! !

      • GALT

        Yes, well the art of saying nothing is rather difficult when you use so many words
        to do it………everyone thinks he shares “their” myths and symbols…….so he is
        “brilliant and inspiring”……..of course, if he is to be believed regarding the “power”
        of these things……….when people applaud him and then cite their peculiar mythological reasons for doing so, they are actually confirming their own stupidity in his eyes,
        assuming that they actually believed and understood what he was saying in the
        first place and that he was telling the TRUTH?

        Besides, Rich, everyone “knows” what Brandon “meant” by “America”, except YOU!!!!!!

        And they KNOW what he meant by everything else too!!!!!!

        Shame on YOU for not recognizing the truly brilliant nature of Brandon’s TRUTH!

      • Brandon Smith

        @Rich

        Rich, you seem to have confused yourself. America is more than just a hypothetical border on a map, it is also an ideal built on principles of individualism and freedom. When I say “it’s not America anymore”, I am obviously referring to the original principles of this country, not the technical borders which you are attempting to turn into some kind of abstract collectivist argument. Please stop wasting everyone’s time with pointless semantics.

        • http://www.sosoflibertymontana.com Rich

          Brandon this is NOT a pointless semantics. It goes to the very foundation of your article. And you so demeaning condescension statement proves the point. To discredit such a functional article is sad in deed.

      • GALT

        Well done RICH!!!!!` You found one of Brandon’s myths……the “american principle”,
        which history tells us, was theft by conquest and extermination by people of christian principles. ( Thanks to pope alex vi (roderigo borgia )

        Of course he MIGHT mean the “american elites” who craved a piece of
        the action, monopolized by the East India Company and/or it’s French competition.

        See what happens when you actually say something Brandon? All that brilliance,
        gone in a puff of smoke!

        Want to share a few more of your myths and/ or conspiracies?

      • Brandon Smith

        @Rich

        Please spare us the poor victim routine and at least provide something tangible to back your point. Your argument is thin and based on a semantic position of where “America’s” border actually is. It’s a meaningless debate position because it has nothing to do with the establishing principles which I discuss. I’m talking about heritage and you want to argue about geographic abstractions. It’s silly, and a waste of time.

        When I say America in terms of social Ideal, I am clearly not referring to Cuba, or Mexico, or Canada. I am talking about the U.S., which is also very often referred to as AMERICA. Whether you like that or not is irrelevant to the broader discussion.

      • Chuck S

        Rich, you’re majoring in minors – semantics. “America” may be a big inaccurate, but I think it’s established terminology now. There are terms “the Americas”, “North America”, and “South America.” I think the only thing the term “America” ever stands for is the US.

      • Brandon Smith

        @Galt

        How is my “brilliance” relevant to the discussion? You seem to resort to a lot of ankle biting and very little legitimate argument? Maybe if you balanced out the ankle biting with a position that makes sense…? I don’t know, give it a shot…

        As far as the founding principles which I refer to, they are available in the Bill of Rights and the Constitution. You are welcome to read them anytime. If you have an argument against those principles, then why don’t you make it, instead of resorting to Alinsky tactics to hide your inadequacies.

      • GALT

        Ah, Brandon the first post is now there……..there is another response below…..
        you do seem to be stuck in an unimaginative phase…….

        You have along way to go to actually catch up to what I understand…..and labels
        are useless since they do not apply……..so if you are “intelligent” I would suggest
        you do not “use” them as an “attempt” to argue……..

        This has been covered below…….( subject to moderation ) and you have a
        partial list of “myths” above……..which one’s are your’s?

        Or did you want to argue that some of them are NOT myths?

      • Brandon Smith

        @Galt

        More attempts to use cryptic nonsense to hide the fact that you have no leg to stand on. You boast shamelessly about how “far ahead” you are above the rest of us, but you have yet to make a single coherent point. If your goal is to regale people with your so called “wit”, then I suggest you find a less informed group on a less informed website. No one here is impressed.

        I find that men and women who exhibit the kind of boastful behavior you do while attempting to constantly denigrate the legitimate work of others suffer from a severe inferiority complex. Always out to prove how “smart” they are to people who couldn’t care less.

      • GALT

        No actually Brandon, I’m not far ahead of you at all…….as you can see…..

        “Of course the main myth is that “minds” are actually capable of “intelligent reasoning”, which unfortunately has no empirical evidence to support it.

        You are ruled by your “biology”, your brain is structured as massive parrallel processing
        unit, whose primary function and ability is “pattern recognition” for the purpose of
        threat assessment response ( survival ) where the proper application is to react to
        “potential threats” whether all not they are real or imagined, and if you manage to
        do this well enough, to reproduce by whatever means necessary, which brings into
        play the use of deception and self deception to realize these goals.

        Intelligent reasoning is possible, but it is not inherent or required, and the primary
        step in this process is the acceptance of the REALITY just stated, or the product of
        other attempts of “logically reasoned” intellect, will be isolated and ultimately self
        contradiction………….because this reasoning will be forced to comply with whatever
        mythology one has chosen…….to DENY…….the REALITY, you have just been
        confronted with.”

        that is all quite simple…..but if you really have a problem grasping it, I will try to
        help, provided you can manage to ask a relevant question or provide a relevant
        argument if you wish to make an argument?

        Course now your mythology may be providing some difficulty grasping the simplicity,
        and while it is actually simple…….the required knowledge base to dispose of all the
        myths listed is really quite extensive…….but this particular one is simply empirical,
        so unless you are a Bishop Usher fan, or think that “evolution” is just a “theory”,
        this is pretty much FACT and REALITY!

        Of course you’re still not saying anything or making any argument, not your fault,
        since you were not aware of the original post, or the context of the “pieces” you were responding to……..but if you persist you simply define yourself further, which would
        be a shame since you went to all the trouble to “say nothing in the first place”,
        and are now losing ground……by actually saying things.

        Nothing relevant to what I have written yet……so you may want to quit while your
        ahead, after all…….I do not believe that you intend harm, I do not think Mr. Livingston
        does either, but being “ignorant” tends to have this result, intended or not,
        and TRUTH is not determined by majority vote or popularity……which if you
        haven’t figured it out yet, I couldn’t care less about……

        You see Brandon, some of us…….not many in the scheme of things…….have actually
        managed to achieve the level of intelligence and the abilities you list in your
        post……..where as for you they are generalized suggestions which you have yet
        to begin to understand……and why you have been taken to task for your post.

        So you can respond to the simple truth above, or argue it?

        You can identify the myths you believe from the list, and argue why they are not myths.

        That would be a “relevant” response to what I wrote…….the same applies to the
        detailed response further on…….which is a brief rendition capable of far greater
        expansion……..oh and if you really would like to become less “ignorant” I have a list of
        books which will get you there…….in six months, sooner if you are really eager.

        In any case “that you said nothing” has been covered, as well as the reasons for it.

        Hopefully this is NOW CLEAR…….?

    • Stuart Shepherd

      Ms. Lynch- what you just did was to STEAL. You used the brilliance and strength of Mr. Smith’s writing and thought, which he FREELY offered to those of us reading it through this Internet newsletter, to not only SELF-promote, but to actually advertise for an item for sale (YOUR BOOK!!). You are disgusting. I wouldn’t buy or read your book for that reason alone, never mind the fact that it is all this “New Age” feminist “empowerment” BS psychobabble from your dramatic, self-absorbed, and narcissistic “life experiences.” GOD has all the power (of goodness)- any “Self Power” (of goodness) one might have is by virtue of “tapping in” to Him. HE is truth- not YOU! And He doesn’t sell it in a book using someone else’s work! Why don’t you go on “The View” or something and sell your book. You’ll fit right in.

      • Mike in MI

        Karolyn -
        Which God is that of which you speak? Certainly not the God of the Bible. That God was separate from Jesus Christ. If not, then Jesus Christ’s testimony in a large number of places and on different grounds is full of contradictions and lies. If he was a liar or unsure of who he really was and why he was put here then all his claims are forfeit, anyone’s expectation of being rescued (Colossians 1) or made whole (Greek: sozo – “saved”) is voided and the hope of his future return is part of the null set.
        In John 14:17 Jesus Christ told his disciples, the night before he gave himself up for his passion, speaking of the spirit, “…he (it) dwelleth with you and shall (future tense) be in you.” Thus, unless the Lord’s knowledge was wrong and yours more right, they did not at that time have holy spirit “within”, only “with”.
        II Corinthians 5:19 indicates,”…God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself…”. It doesn’t say He was Christ. Says He was “in” Christ.
        Further, John 10:30 -”I and my Father are one.” does not fit into this discussion. Jesus Christ was an Oriental – not Occidental – man using the vocabulary of that time and culture to describe that he, Jesus, disciplined his mind to stay lined up with 1). the Scripture he could refer to, and 2) whatever God might tell him by revelation to his mind on a momentary basis.

        Having started my career in business as a shoe shine boy at age 6, and scrambling for survival and success, I never cease to be amazed at how much supposed fellow conservatives are quick to reprimand those who attempt to utilize the free market we have enjoyed in America.

      BRANDON SMITH stated above in His Article:
      ” If we cannot take lordship of our own psychological world, we are doomed to failure in every other fight that envelops us. Without impervious will, we cannot overcome, and we cannot find peace.

      MISSIONARY JAMES declares by the Authority of God’s Word:
      “Although this statement above about Man not being able to take Lordship and being doomed and not finding Peace if Man does not overcome His own Mind, Battles, Demons and Will, is 100% True, the SOLUTION that BRANDON SMITH offers is 100% False and Misguided, equivalent to that of the very Misguided and Evil Tyrants He describes above, of whom, have believed in and acted upon BRANDON SMITH’S SOLUTION that recommends LORDSHIP of MAN and SELF, which is a Trap of their own doing, their Dilemma and the Trap and Dilemma of any other Man (sincere or not) who would follow thereafter. Man ALONE CAN NOT CONQUER SELF via SELF-HELP LORDSHIP trash.”

      Such Wills, Demons and Minds of Men can only be conquered and properly governed by the GOD-MAN Christ Jesus, who sent the HOLY-SPIRIT to EMPOWER MEN from on high, to conquer their Wills, Minds, Demons, Deceptions, Addictions and more!

      For the weapons of our Warfare are NOT CARNAL, but SPIRITUAL and such STRONG-HOLDS against any Patriot, described above, can only be PULLED DOWN by Spiritual means, those forces which have BLINDED the MINDS of those wicked, evil Tyrannical Men, and EVERY OTHER man for that matter. We can not conquer OUR FLESH with the FLESH, but ONLY by the SPIRIT of GOD can we conquer the Flesh.

      2CORINTHIANS 10:3-6
      For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
      And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.

      EPHESIANS 6:12-17
      For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

      Herein above is How the TRUE AMERICAN PATRIOT (and all other men on earth) can conquer the Flesh, Will, Mind, Deceptions and Demons of SELF and OTHERS.

      A True-Blue American Patriot first Believes and Trusts in GOD ALONE for His Life, Liberty, Property and Pursuit of Happiness and has Trusted in NO KING BUT KING JESUS (motto of the Revolutionary War) for SALVATION and while in this Life, VICTORY over HIS MIND, WILL, EMOTIONS and the MIND, ACTIONS and WILL of others! It is through the RELIGION OF JESUS CHRIST ALONE than ANY and ALL MEN will ever have true Victory over the Lusts, struggles and passions of mankind.

      GEN. GEORGE WASHINGTON:
      1. “Of all the dispositions and habits, which lead to political prosperity, Religion and Morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of Patriotism, who should labor to subvert these great pillars (Religion & Morality) of human happiness, these firmest props of the DUTIES of Men and Citizens. The mere Politician, equally with the pious man, ought to respect and to cherish them.”

      2. “You do well to wish to learn our arts and ways of life, and above all, the religion of Jesus Christ. These will make you a greater and happier people than you are.”

        NOT WELL SAID, Sam. What the dolt is advocating with all his high sounding rhetoric and verbosity is that people give up control of their own will and life. Empty themselves, then “turn it all over to god and TRUST jesus”. Higledee-pigledee, hocus pocus, hookey-pook and balderdash.
        God doesn’t command that; He doesn’t want that; and, He won’t take advantage of anyone who does that. But, Satan does – soon as you open your mind and void out control of your own will. The “jesus” this bird is preaching is the one spoken of in II Corinthians 11: 4 – “For if he that comes preaches ANOTHER JESUS (my emphasis), whom we have not preached, or of you receive another (“another ” of a different sort or type) spirit, which you have not received…”
        It’s pretty clear. You have your choice of Jesus Christ or “jesus” (usually pronounced, “Jayisouz”. It’s a life or death decision – eternally.

Naturally, as a father and a grandfather, MY mind is curious about your parents, where you were raised, what church you attended, etc. (because you also seem very young in your picture, but maybe you’re older now). I have read much of what you have written and it has incredible depth, and you are right in all your assertions, in my opinion.

    Brandon, your bio says you want to teach a system where you step away from the ” unstable mainstream system” and build ” something better”. When you do that I assume you will stay off of our mainstream road system and out of our mainstream markets” It is fine with us if you take your group into the very un-mainstream desert and live in holes and trade cases of beans. We actually need more space here in the real world. When you have “built something better” out there we would love to come to “open house” and see what you have created as the replacement for the NUMBER ONE NATION IN THE WORLD! Will we need a camp stool?

    It is truly amazing to read what the leaders of those on the fringe of leadership advise their few followers to believe
    !” We are not in control so the controllers have to be bad because they think differently!!” “DO NOT LOOK AT WHAT THEY HAVE PRODUCED AND HOW THEY PROTECTED IT OR HOW THEY HAVE ALSO PROTECTED US!” It is all a conspiracy and false flag just to make us believe the good life we ACTUALLY enjoy IS far better than the rest of the world!! The rest of the world has it so much better than us! It is an illusion! A 220 years false flag of success! Don’t ever ask yourself how they did it without our leadership”

      The mainstream roads and marketplaces were built by taxpayer money derived from the private sector. So, it was private sector that is responsible for our lifestyle. When our market were more free, there was more money to build this infrastructure.

      Obama has been saying he was going to rebuild the infrastructure but his economic policies have decreased his available funding.

      What you progressives don’t grasp is that there would be plenty of money for social programs if you promoted the private sector.

      • nc

        Bill, if you think the liberal progressives have been a blight on the private sector while they influenced the government you need to go to “Bulls Bears Donkey and Elephants” Even if you want to SPIN IT by saying they didn’t do all the good things that produced those good figures you still have to admit they didn’t ruin it! ‘
        You mention the GDP figures under Obama! What, as an adult, do you attribute the state of economy when he took office on the fact that they are not as great as those before bush served his eight years! bush was there! 2001-2008 actually happened and what took place during those years had an effect on where we are today! Why would Obama not want a stronger private sector? It would make his job much easier!! BUT THE PRIVATE “SECTOR” IS JUST THAT!

      @NC

      Your ignorance and bias has led you to misunderstand the purpose of decentralized markets. I think it’s hilarious first of all that you have such reactionary hatred of anyone who does not want to participate in the mainstream system as it exists today. You reveal a collectivist/statist nature. It’s never enough for Collectivists and statists to be a part of the machine themselves, they want to force EVERYONE to fall in line and enjoy it too. If others walk away, that means they are not weak and dependent like yourself, and that just drives you crazy, doesn’t it?

      Why do you care if other people do not want to participate in the establishment social structure? Why? If you love the corrupt system so much, then by all means, keep basking in it until it collapses in on itself. But stop trying to force your belief system on others just so you can feel better about selling out.

      That said, many people do not want to continue selling out, either because they have awoken to the rigging of the game, or, they realize the game now threatens their survival. When you say the game has “sustained us for 220 years”, you show an utter lack of understanding.

      This country’s economic dynamic was built on traditional free markets and DECENTRALIZATION, and it was built by the people, not international bankers. After the creation of the private Federal Reserve a hundred years ago, all that changed. We were forcefully shifted into centralization, and continuous inflation. Free Markets no longer exist, and our currency has lost almost 99% of its original buying power. Today, they have created the derivatives bubble, the Libor Scandal, the mortgage crisis, and are pushing the dollar towards losing its world reserve status. Central Bankers have slowly but surely destroyed this country.

      Alt-Market’s goal is to encourage people to think outside the mainstream box and provide for themselves what the mainstream economy obviously does not: security. All those “roads” you enjoy were built on the fiscal backs of your children, and they do not offer you security. Are you so easily bought that you would abandon all financial freedom for yourself and your family just so you can have the illusion of good infrastructure? We are not. The Nazi’s made the trains run on time too, you know. Being self reliant is a safety net against the precarious weaknesses of the system you seem to adore so much. It’s called common sense, not “conspiracy theory”. You should try it sometime.

        Mr Smith, why is it that you people cannot come to grips with the fact that the people who have served this country, faced the problems, fought through the tough times and never relinquished our leadership position in the world are not, nor have ever been, from you neck of the political-fiscal spectrum. We are a world power. That was not a birth right of this young piney woods country! It was earned. acquired and held onto, without the leadership of a SINGLE TRUE CONSERVATIVE ADMINISTRATION! EXCUSE ME, BUT WE DON’T NEED YOU! We would welcome you to the table IF you would come to grips with the fact that you cannot lead from the bottom. You cannot even fail from the bottom!
        At no time have we ever been perfect !Nor has our Constitution been perfect for all that has occurred since it was written! You wail that ‘THEY’ are not following the Constitution! Then take it to the Supreme Court under the WONDERFUL Constitution! DON’T RUN TO THE DESERT, DIG A HOLE AND DROP OUT

        @NC

        Typical elitist posturing. The establishment has done nothing for the people, nor do they wish to. Their only concern is feeding their own hubris. And may I point out that this system you are cheerleading for is the most indebted economy and government in human history. Gee, what a fantastic accomplishment. The globalists don’t offer people a “place at the table”. They deliberately shrink the table down to fit their own small minority, and then exploit useful idiots like yourself to spread their propaganda and do their dirty work.

        The reason why they are in power (for now) is because they are willing to abandon inherent conscience , adopt moral relativism, and use death and genocide to get what they want. Like all oligarchies, they use the excuse of the “greater good” to convince themselves and others that what they do is acceptable behavior. You seem to admire them for this activity. I don’t.

        I don’t want a place at their table. Haven’t you been paying attention? We don’t need it. We have our own table, and it is open to everyone. Multiple countries in Europe are now turning to the exact system of barter or “black market” trade that I have advocated for years exactly because it WORKS BETTER than the socialized mainstream system you worship so much.

        Why are you so desperate to convince people NOT to walk away? Why are you so desperate too convince us that we need to be dependent on the establishment? If you’re so sure our philosophy is wrong, then hey, we fail and you get to continue feeding off of the populous like a parasite. If we’re just a bunch of “kooky conspiracy theorists”, then what are you so afraid of?

        We don’t have to “run to the desert”. All we have to do is offer the alternative, and wait. The people are gravitating towards trade outside the system on their own. Eventually, they will no longer need anything from the establishment. The globalists will become obsolete, and decentralization will prevail. Or, like you, they will try to con us into staying dependent on their corrupt ideology. And if that doesn’t work, they may try to use force. In either case, they reveal their true natures, and we win.

        @Galt

        It’s sad you feel the need to resort to strawman arguments. It shows there is no substance to your position.

        Who said anything about “isolation”? What is isolating about building alternative barter communities? Do you actually have an argument with substance to present, or are you just here to throw around dishonest Alinsky tactics?

        Why do you need people to be a part of the mainstream system so badly? Why do you care if people walk away?

      • GALT

        Gee Brandon, I’m so glad you asked……unfortunately, being under moderation, the
        primary post that would explain this and all the other ones that build upon it, have yet to appear…….and how long it takes this one to appear, is anyone’s guess…….as they are
        coming piecemeal……..the main one, posted at 5.21 AM….has yet to appear, and possibly
        might help you to understand………but Bob is controlling “everything you see and hear”, when and or if………

        But let me see if I can work around this…….despite your “childish” labeling tactics, and the
        the fact that your response directly contradicts all the claimed “brilliance” of all those
        things “one should do”……as indicated by your bold headlines????????

        You act as if what is taking place now is somehow “unique” in our history, when it it simply
        a repetition and extension of “our history”…….with brief interruptions, such as the
        changeover from the “european plutocracies” which preceded, the excluded “elites” who
        challenged them and won ( with french help as they had been “expelled” in the previous
        conflict a.k.a. french and indian conflict or possibly the East India Company “police action”?????

        It did take a bit for the distinctly U.S. plutocracy to consolidate itself, which is to be
        expected when “new mythologies” are needed to “justify” periods of “disruption” when
        one hierarchy is disposed of……..and another is rising in it’s stead. ( that this will occur
        is simply a matter of when and who, not whether or if )

        So, after all the jockeying for position, whose chief rivals are the “agrarian southern faction” and the newly emerging “northern industrial faction”, it takes the Civil War
        to set the stage……and it’s downhill from there…….beginning with war contracts, then
        railroads, followed by the “industrialization” phase, where all those names surface, which begin to define the U.S. Plutocracy, Carnegie, Rockefeller, Morgan, Astor, Ford, Dupont,
        and many more who are less familiar……..and the consequences are immediate, beginning in 1877 and continuing to date, with a mild ( accidental ) disruption,
        which begins in 1933, and culminates at the end of WWII with enough momentum to
        create the MIDDLE CLASS……which was an accidental but unavoidable result, of the
        excesses of the PLUTOCRACY whose FAILURE ( 1929 ) brought into focus, the
        danger and intent of “wealth acquisition” which has never and will never bring general
        prosperity to the “masses”, which it needs to “exploit” in order the “acquire” those
        fortunes in the first place. ( of course, this REALITY, was only briefly visible, since
        the “masses” are not particularly intelligent and easily distracted by “appearances”
        and “promises”….and are easily divided ( by all those other myths ) and distracted
        by a little temporary improvement of conditions.

        Plutocrat’s are not any more intelligent than the “masses” they exploit, but they
        are more focused and they do have the WEALTH with which to a accomplish this,
        and they still have managed to “avoid” being IDENTIFIED as the “useless, immoral parasites they are” and have half of their VICTIMS believing they are “the PRODUCERS
        and THE SOLUTION”, while the “corrupted mechanism” which they have employed
        to do this………provides the continuing camoflage and distraction for them to continue
        to do what they have always done.

        All of this becomes even more “obscure” by the “other mythologies” that also persist
        and are partially listed in the FIRST POST HERE, which has yet to appear, and which
        sites your “brilliant article” for what it is…….”much ado about NOTHING”…….you will note
        that another poster here…….managed to reduce your entire message and it’s
        meaning to a “single line from the bible” ( his mythology )……

        As for what you are actually attempting to do ( and I am not certain what that is )
        I have no objection to the desire as a response to the current conditions……or
        that under the circumstances it is a far more SANE response than most…….but
        your meaningless rhetoric ( which actually says nothing ) becomes a self promotional
        piece who single message is ( I’m different, dare to be different, follow me )
        your reactive response to a problem which you do not understand and CAN NOT
        escape.

        The reason you can not escape is that you have no where to run……for example,
        the documentary “Farmageddon” is one of many examples of why you CAN”T
        escape……..and there are many more…….so unless you can hide among the
        Amish or the Mormon’s or in armed camps, that exist in Idaho……your solution
        is not practical, or a solution…….except for you…….( and what you can EARN
        writing about it……….a result which you share with your host…..Mr Livingston,
        while the REAL PROBLEM and the REAL SOLUTION is lost in the meaningless
        rhetoric…..and the idiotic comments……it “incites” on a daily basis……)

        You can remain ignorant of the actually REALITY you need to accept ( see first post
        above ) and dispose of “all the the myths” constructed to DENY it……or you can continue to hope that your “victimization” will be less than that of your fellow victims,
        while cloaking this in the “illusion” that you are trying to help…….which you may
        in fact BELIEVE is true. ( and your ignorance or willfull ignorance permits you
        to continue to do. )

        I now cede control to my “moderator”….hopefully he will not decide the your fragile
        ego makes this TOO do difficult to deal with?

      I agree with you that we are the #1 nation in the world, but then it goes down hill after that. Sorry no cajones, but the government we have now (Rinos, libturds, progturds, Obama bin Laden, etc…) does not go by the Constitution and is seeking to destroy it. Right now they are focused on the 2nd Amendment. I, for one, want to keep my fire arms at arms length to protect my property and family. Notice no 5th columners are attacking any amendment after the 10th Amendment? Why is that? It is because they are God given rights, written into the Constitution to keep government from taking them from us. They also protects us from our own government. Why do you keep posting trash on this site? Here is also one of the offshoots of a libturd/progturd America:

    Great article, Brandon
    We need to focus on what’s important and noy get sidetracked by what the media wants you to think.

    What’s important is our freedoms, rights to gun ownership and our economic survival. Without these, we have nothing.

    The progressives want us to believe that things are getting better as a result of their economic policies. The true numbers to focus on are the GDP numbers. As long as they are under 4%, we are not doing well. Right now, they are between 1.5 and 2%. There is no economic recovery at these numbers.

No one knows exactly what America’s worth because no one knows exactly what the counterfeit dollars (FR NOTES) are worth. Our guns are an essential. We need them for defense against all enemies, including our own government as the founders needed them.

        I have a better idea Kate, why do not “all of you”, who have a “meta physical philosophy”
        which states that “life” is not confined to this “existence” and do not “believe” that
        population is a problem which needs to be addressed, or radical adjustments made,
        to address the limited nature of the resources we have and the environmental support
        system we are destroying…….help us out, by moving on to that “next life” or
        giving us permission to send you there…….since you have someplace to go, and
        we do not……….????????

        Of course, if you do not have such a belief system, you might want to consider lending a hand, as there are others who couldn’t care less, are largely responsible for this,
        and will kill you……..probably using their “god or belief” as “justification……just
        to maintain the standard of living they have attained at the expense of others,
        and have convinced many of there victims, that they deserve this status…..and
        are “also the ” solution……..it is really the other “victims” that are your problem,
        you know, those parasites???????

        Granted this is not as pithy as your “comeback”…..but it does reflect the REALITY
        and the need for action…….as well as the CAUSE……which for some reason
        you do NOT seem to understand……..hopefully you will take the time to
        consider it further?

        Yes, the “willfully ignorant, functional illiterate” has just posted “evidence” by

        the “conclusion” that this “evidence” demands……and is included in every post
        which seeks to argue that “capitalism and the austrian varient” are the “solution”,
        when nothing in “economics” offers a solution……

        For the economist, it is a failure of “intelligent reasoning”, for DavidH it is his
        “functional illiteracy”, since he has no intelligence and is constantly contradicting
        himself…………he can prove very educational, if one understands this……

    There are two powers battling for control of minds, Satan and God. Man is three part being, body, soul and spirit (mind). The spirit (mind) has the reasoning power that guides the flesh and soul. We need the flesh to function in this environment but the soul is eternal. Satan is the prince of this world but his only power is the power of persuasion. He speaks to the spirit (mind) as God does, if we let him. Satan, the destroyer, is responsible for every sinful act in the world but he works through men that will listen to him. God created this world with a foundation, his word, but Adan and Eve, and every human being since then has chose to tear at that foundation. We read mens words of wisdom but less than half of us can enter into a marriage that works or establish a socety that works. Wisdom is found in the pages of the bible. The motto of Harvard University is based on John 17:3 And this is eternal life, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. Christ is talking but are men listening? The book of James tells us that we look in a mirror and straightway forget who we were. The foundation is quaking, like an earthquake. Everybody feels it but some turn to God and some to Satan to establish their final destination.

    The words in this article are correct but they are not the words we need first. We need the wisdom that comes from our reasoning with God. Read and believe John 3:16. Then people will be able to pick and chose the right words to guide him through life.

      King Jesus said at Luke 21:8 and Jame said at 1;1— be not deceived by the Satanic spiritual dark forces…
      The Mattoid revolutionaries in the so called Judea- Christian Churches are keeping you away from Acts 2:38 by their “Faith Only salvation”, John 3:16… Peter is a ranking Man because of what King Jesus did at Matthew 16:19,,,so,,,regarding “Salvation” process , no one outranks Peter , also Peter spoke 1 Peter 3:21 “”baptism now saves you”””….
      Routinely speaking , you can ONLY become a True Christian by understanding and doing
      Acts 2:38 … NO ONE CAN BYPASS WHAT King Jesus said at John 3:5… ALL Scripture harmonize with some other Scripture to arrive at “Truth”… Meanwhile…………..

    Gee wizz Brandon, you’ll all over the road.

    Where to start?

    It’s true! We now ~ more then ever, live in a “Media Rich” world but people’s behavior is same as always ~ “some” will over indulge and chock on whatever is available that appeals to them as that is their nature.

    We have come a long way to where the church house, local news print and monthly publications was the main source of passing “the word”. While it’s still ones own “filters” that permits ideas and information in or blocks it.

    It’s being New Years day, I mused over the news via the Web this morning and like everyone else, ~ I could not read it all.

    I am required to be selective, employ filters to have the time to extract what I “feel” I wish or need to know.

    I notice Hue Heffner has a new bide this morning. ~ I don’t really care.

    I noticed that 7 or 8 charity caregivers were gun down in Pakistan, ~ I do care.

    I noticed that a 32 years old boy ran off the road north of town and killed himself last night. I do care.

    I notice Kim Kadashion and her husband are with child. ~ Okay. that’s well.

    Oh! The Senate approved and averted the oh so notorious financial cliff. I knew that they would and this is not really news. While they milked it for all the drama that they could. I guess the GOP, had to impress certain people that they tried in order to keep the campaign contributions flowing in from the well to do.

    Nasa is bringing down a satellite that has been mapping the globe for the last 30 years, saying one of the gyro’s has failed. ~ Sad, but 30 years for a machine is a long time.

    The Dallas/ Ft Worth area is listed as one of the 3 most thriving metropolitan in the United States, while rest of the nation lags far behind. ~ I was afraid that was the case, the rest still needs help and suffers!

    And that is the way ~ it goes. ~ I could have dug deep into only a few things this morning while the killing of Caregivers in Pakistan and Science dominated my attention.

    Information has to get passed discriminating personal filters. As a writer and publisher that is the task before you. Find your market and appeal to them.

    A blessed New Years to all.

    and many Thanks to Mr. Livingston and Staff.

    You have got a tough crowd to write too here Brandon. ~ They are the agitated, annoyed and “offended” ones. They see themselves as “victims” . They are victims of the government and government employees and elected officials, of the devils work, of all progressives and liberals. Their life, their healthy, their money, their God, their guns, their freedom is under constant siege by someone. They prefer to hear how bad things are as it helps to justify and enforce their belief systems. The more it hurts and the sadder that it is the better they like it.

      Yea, we are and intend to stay vigilant about those things. Seems I’ve read various admonishing statements by our founders to be and stay vigilant. In almost every generation, they told us, there would be, have been and, now we see, ARE tyrants to whom the unscrupulous and unwary and unthankfull will flock just to see what they’ve got in the common purse.
      Socialism in all its guises is a parasite. In nature when the parasite gets too big or too numerous in its host it will suck the host empty of its energy stores and deplete its life functions or poison it. Then, after the host dies so does the parasite, too.

    Turn off your TV news, cancel your daily newspaper, maybe subscribe to the local weekly that tells you Aunt Martha came to vist and brought everyone cranberry bread, and select your online news outlets carefully, and share excellent articles like this at alternative social sites such as the Tea Party Community (that I wished this outlet would post at as they do on facebook, we need to boycott the lefty spying networks).

    • Nadzieja Batki

      Even when you watch the news channels you still don’t get the news of what really happens around the world and it doesn’t matter whose network you ascribe to. The important news gets silenced so there would not be any reaction from people unless it is a wanted reaction. We have been taught that if something is not on tv or radio it never happened.
      By the way even the networks and radio channels that purport that they are Conservative are not.

  • Kate8

    It seems that many have missed the impact of this article. Not surprising, especially coming from the Leftist section where they see no problem with mind control. That way they don’t have to actually think.

    But for the rest, I think this article is the most important piece of rational thinking I’ve seen so far. It goes below the bru-ha-ha and tells it like it is.

    Congratulations, Mr. Smith. You get my vote for the most important article of these days. If we understand these things, we have already won.

    God job. Worth a second read, and a third and a fourth, until every person understands the truth of what you are saying and can begin to free himself from the matrix mindgames.

    Once we free ourselves from believing in the grand illusion which has been crafted all around us, we are free. It is only held in place by fear and intimidation.

    Just stop believing in it.

You 10%ers need a guidebook since you are so far out of the mainstream of reality that GPS can’t find you! Don’t fear that we are after YOUR MIND!

        Yeah sure, NC.
        The people who score in the 95th percentile in testing comprise only 5% of the testers. Does that somehow make the vast majority who scored below that intelligent?
        I wouldn’t brag about being in the majority if I were you, NC. In fact, you’re wasting your time pointing that out to us, because we are well aware of your blindered ignorance from reading your comments.

      • Kate8

        DaveH – I really had to laugh at this one. nc has set to attacking me lately, (along with a few others), and that can only mean that I’m getting noticed by the troll brigade.

        Loved your response, too. Being that the vast majority of people are utterly clueless…, well, I guess nc’s admission says it all.

        While a wayshower can lead down a dark one as well as a bright one, at least they use their God-given abilities to think.

        We must be aware that they include those who infiltrate and agitate toward evil revolution as well as good, so the followers would be wise to use discernment…but then, too many followers (especially of the liberal persuasion) don’t tend to have much in the way of discernment, as they are empty of soul and cannot hear the Voice.

        In any case, there are some righteous and courageous wayshowers, as well. These are the ones who dare to look outside of the box, who refuse to march with the lemmings…

        In any case, it takes far more courage to challenge the status quo than it does to run with the herd.

      Too Tall,

      This is the most intelligent, straight forward, common sense comment on this topic! I THOUGHT that’s what the “Shock & Awe” was supposed to be after the FIRST 9/11, but instead we just had a few “fireworks”! If you fight like a “sissy” (not saying that any of our military troops are sissies, just our government), you’re going to be “bullied”!

      And you are so right about the “rules”. It seems the rules of engagement only apply to the USA. My deceased husband was in Vietnam. The North Vietnamese Army training camp fired on my husband & his squad constantly & they weren’t allowed to return fire! How fair is that?

  • MNIce

    The Prussian military officer Karl von Clausewitz, in his treatise, “vom Kriege” (On War), noted that the object of war is to impose one’s will on the opposition. The violence of combat is only the most prominent means to that end.

    It is evident that a government that must impose its will upon the people, rather than having their agreement, is at war with the people. The purpose and object of legitimate government is not to be a terror to good works, but to evil (see Romans 13). Government is supposed to secure the blessings of liberty to the people, and restrain those who would violate the rights of others. But when the government seeks to inculcate fear in those who simply want to be left alone to serve their families and their neighbors as they see fit, while supporting those who instead seek to take away from others the fruits of their labor, the government has become corrupt and abusive.

    This is the failing of the welfare state – it too easily devolves from a desire to provide a “safety net” for the needy to providing a feather mattress for the greedy. For the greedy will always be ready to vote for the politician who promises them goodies in exchange for their loyalty, or for the politician who exploits the fear of having those “entitlements” and “benefits” taken away by others.

    Here is why totalitarian governments hate Christianity: Christianity teaches that coveting is a sin, and that material goods are significant only insofar as they are provided by God to advance the work of His kingdom. Therefore it is difficult for a practicing Christian to be bought. Christianity teaches that we are not to fear those who can kill the body, for afterwards there is nothing more that they can do, but rather we should fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. Therefore it is difficult to intimidate a practicing Christian. The practicing Christian will for the sake of order follow the ordinances of government insofar as they do not command evil, but the rulers can never have his first loyalty, for that belongs to God alone. Therefore the practicing Christian will not hesitate to (respectfully) refuse to do commanded evil. It is evident that when the prominent members of society, particularly those in the political class, denounce Christianity, they are up to no good.

        a brief excerpt from the book Econned.

        “In 1776, Adam Smith published The Wealth fof Nations. In it he argued that the uncoordinated actions of large numbers of individuals, each acting out of self interest, sometimes produced , as if by “an invisible hand,”results that were beneficial to broader society. Smith also pointed out that self interested actions frequently led to injustice or even ruin. He fiercely criticized both how employers colluded with each other to keep wages low, as well as the ” savage injustice ” that European mercantilist interests had “commited with impunity” in colonies in Asia and the Americas.

        Smith’s ideas were cherry picked and turned into a simplistic ideology that now dominates university economics departments. This theory proclaims that the “invisible hand” ensures that economic interest will always lead to the best outcomes imaginable. It follows that any restrictions on the profit seeking activities of individuals and corporations interfer with this invisible hand, and therefor are “inefficient” and nonsensical.

        According to this line of thinking, individuals have perfect knowledge both of what they want and everything happening in the world at large,and so they pass there lives making intelligent decisions. Prices may change in ways that appear random, but this randomness follows predictable and unchanging rules and is never violently chaotic. It is therefore possible for corporations to use clever techniques to reduce and even eliminate the risks associated with their business. The result is a stable productive economy that represents the apex of civilization.

        This heartwarming picture airbrushes out nearly all of the real business world.”

    BRANDON SMITH stated above in His Article:
    ” If we cannot take lordship of our own psychological world, we are doomed to failure in every other fight that envelops us. Without impervious will, we cannot overcome, and we cannot find peace.

    MISSIONARY JAMES declares by the Authority of God’s Word:
    “Although this statement above about Man not being able to take Lordship and being doomed and not finding Peace if Man does not overcome His own Mind, Battles, Demons and Will, is 100% True, the SOLUTION that BRANDON SMITH offers is 100% False and Misguided, equivalent to that of the very Misguided and Evil Tyrants He describes above, of whom, have believed in and acted upon BRANDON SMITH’S SOLUTION that recommends LORDSHIP of MAN and SELF, which is a Trap of their own doing, their Dilemma and the Trap and Dilemma of any other Man (sincere or not) who would follow thereafter. Man ALONE CAN NOT CONQUER SELF via SELF-HELP LORDSHIP trash.”

    Such Wills, Demons and Minds of Men can only be conquered and properly governed by the GOD-MAN Christ Jesus, who sent the HOLY-SPIRIT to EMPOWER MEN from on high, to conquer their Wills, Minds, Demons, Deceptions, Addictions and more!

    For the weapons of our Warfare are NOT CARNAL, but SPIRITUAL and such STRONG-HOLDS against any Patriot, described above, can only be PULLED DOWN by Spiritual means, those forces which have BLINDED the MINDS of those wicked, evil Tyrannical Men, and EVERY OTHER man for that matter. We can not conquer OUR FLESH with the FLESH, but ONLY by the SPIRIT of GOD can we conquer the Flesh.

    2CORINTHIANS 10:3-6
    For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
    And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.

    EPHESIANS 6:12-17
    For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

    Herein above is How the TRUE AMERICAN PATRIOT (and all other men on earth) can conquer the Flesh, Will, Mind, Deceptions and Demons of SELF and OTHERS.

    A True-Blue American Patriot first Believes and Trusts in GOD ALONE for His Life, Liberty, Property and Pursuit of Happiness and has Trusted in NO KING BUT KING JESUS (motto of the Revolutionary War) for SALVATION and while in this Life, VICTORY over HIS MIND, WILL, EMOTIONS and the MIND, ACTIONS and WILL of others! It is through the RELIGION OF JESUS CHRIST ALONE than ANY and ALL MEN will ever have true Victory over the Lusts, struggles and passions of mankind.

    GEN. GEORGE WASHINGTON:
    1. “Of all the dispositions and habits, which lead to political prosperity, Religion and Morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of Patriotism, who should labor to subvert these great pillars (Religion & Morality) of human happiness, these firmest props of the DUTIES of Men and Citizens. The mere Politician, equally with the pious man, ought to respect and to cherish them.”

    2. “You do well to wish to learn our arts and ways of life, and above all, the religion of Jesus Christ. These will make you a greater and happier people than you are.”

    Having said ALL THAT, I loudly declare unto IRIS D. LYNCH:
    TO HELL WITH THE MIRACLE OF SELF-HELP BOOK AND ONWARD TOWARD HEAVEN WITH THE POWER AND MIRACLE OF GOD AND HIS HOLY WORD, TO WHICH I QUOTE, THIS VERY APROPOS BIBLE VERSE below:

    PSALM 118:8
    “It is better to put thy Trust in the Lord, than to put thy confidence in Man…..

    • Brandon Smith

      @James

      There is religion, and then there is religious zealotry. You, James, suffer from the latter. The bible speaks often of knowing one’s own weaknesses. For instance:

      Matt. 7: 3-5
      3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
      4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?
      5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.

      How is this any different from what I am promoting? Self knowledge for the sake of avoiding weakness, chaos, and hate.

      Save your pious judgements and act like a real Christian, won’t you? There are so few nowadays.

      • GALT

        Them “myths” can be tricky, Brandon………but I think I mentioned that?????

      • Mike in MI

        Well done, Brandon. Notice that he, Missing-Airy James, subtly tells people they should give up control of their own wills and turn it over to “King Jesus”. God has never done that to anyone and there is no account in scripture that indicates God or Jesus Christ would take such power, or use it, if it were proffered. Therefore, they would not ask nor command that someone do it.
        Therefore, what this man is doing is done for some other god and in service to that god, possibly by having been taken over by that god to accomplish it. Like Mary Baker Eddy got her writings done for her (Edgar Cayce, too sometimes) by “automatic writing”. Some stupid spirit shoving the hand around to go where it needs to for production of the post.
        MJ might not even be aware it is going on. He may be “put down” or unconscious while it is going on.
        When doing things for the God and Father of the Lord Jesus Christ one is always a willing, knowledgeable and consciously aware participant. That’s why there are directions issued in the imperative mood in the Greek that indicate what God expects US to do – that He WON”T do for us or TO us. But, you can’t always see it in a translation on paper.
        The damned ministers tell peopl God will do things for them but seldom tell them what their responsibilities are. So, people think God’s going to do it all for them. Phooey – it’s a partnership.
        Then they hear about Obama and find out that god will do it all for them……abandoning the truth and the God of truth. Because of fools like Missionary James.

        of the governed”.

        You, pay lip service to that which is no longer relevant, unfortunately……since the jurisdiction that those who serve in government take an oath to is “admiralty/maritime
        and you have no rights in this jurisdiction because you have not “reserved them” as
        required by UCC 1-207/308………and by failing to do so, you now have, benefits,

          Wrong, wrong, wrong GALT. Why don’t you ever learn what our Constitution and Christian founding are about before speaking? The God-given right to bear arms was written in the Constitution to keep the government from trying to take that right from the people. The well regulated militia, as is mentioned in the 2nd Amendment, is made up of all men between the ages of 18 – 60, in good physical and mental health, and who own a weapon. If the U.S. is attacked, we are to stand along side the army and help them fight off invaders of our great land. But alas! You seem to not posses the capacity to understand.

          You need both love of country and faith in God to be a patriot. This leaves your atheist backside out.

          “Far from being rivals or enemies, religion (Christianity) and law are twin sisters, friends and mutual assistants. The Divine Law forms an essential part of both.”

          James Wilson
          Supreme Court Justice and signer of the Constitution

        Sorry, but god doesn’t seem to be be anywhere in the constitution, or in any other document that I am aware of………probably because there is no evidence for
        god anywhere in the “universe”………which is even more TRUE now than it was then,
        but don’t be “scared”…….everything will be okay. ( after all, it is governments job
        to secure these rights ……so I guess whatever the source they were “unsecured”,
        or it would not be necessary for “anyone” to secure them? )

        You are wasting your time reading galt comments and dialoging with him.

      What Mission Field did you serve in ?

        GALT,,,
        According to Black’s Law Dictionary ,definition of the word “Jurisdiction”, is The Bible a Jurisdiction ??? IF,,,not ? why not?…………… Meanwhile………………
        Praise King Jesus for Salvation and Healing… Acts 2:38 is salvation…

      • GALT

        Are there “laws” in the bible, Charlie………is there a mechanism for the “enforcement” of
        those laws, Charlie?

        Using Black’s definition of jurisdiction, can you not answer your own question?

        What does the have to do with admiralty/maritime jurisdiction?

      • Charlie

        GALT,,,
        How about that? answer a question with a question,,,the old mumbo jumbo intelligence show of your non-brain power… El Toro Dung is your specialty ….
        Who created the “Law” of gravity? Does GALT have any faults ? Meanwhile……………
        Praise King Jesus for Salvation and Healing… Acts 2:38 is salvation…

      • GALT

        No Charlie I answered your question with four questions………if you answer
        the first two……….that will give YOU the answer to your question……..

        Unless you do not understand the “definition” of jurisdiction you refer to, but
        if you require assistance, you can post it………so we can all have the benefit
        of “knowing” what you might be looking at………

        The last question asks, what relevance your question has to the “admiralty/maritime
        jurisdiction in my post………..or if not what is the point of your asking the question?

        Or do you need assistance regarding whether or not “the bible” has “laws” and/or
        a system in place to “enforce those laws”?

        Unless you need “assistance”, you have the answer to your question…….

        If you have a “point” to make regarding the “answer” or wanted to ask another
        question regarding the answer, you should have said……or begun with:

        GALT according Black’s Law Dictionary “jurisdiction”…..( cite relevant part ) and complete
        sentence.

        The Bible……… ( complete thought, question or argument ) whatever it
        happens to be.

        I hope this is helpful???????

      • Charlie

        GALT,,,
        You are “nitpicking” over minor items and bypassing the Major points,,,you’re not as smart as you think you are… I can only prove you are “Brainwashed”, on some issues, IF , you answer My questions , straight forward, simply, and honestly… BUT, of course , no one wants to be proven ,ignorant , stupid , or “Brainwashed”,,, UNLESS ,,, they are searching for “Truth”… What you are doing is ego tripping with some knowledge of subject matter,,,BUT, not with the sum of Truth… Psalm 119:160 tells you what the sum of truth is..
        All Organic Law was Created by The Almighty God,,,Man’s law ONLY applies in certain “Jurisdictions”,,, God’s Real Law , applies in ALL “Jurisdictions” … Meanwhile…………….
        Praise King Jesus for Salvation and Healing… Acts 2:38 is salvation…

      • GALT

        Well then it seems you have failed……..on the other hand, if you know the answers
        to my questions, then you would know my answers…….so it whatever it is you had
        planned would be unaffected…….and you could proceed as directed…..

        whatever your intent it is quite obvious the intelligent discussion is not it.

        of course, the reason for this, is that you are not capable of it, at least
        according to the evidence thus far………

      • Charlie

        GALT,,,
        Yes, you have a point, it is difficult to communicate with some that “Think” they are smarter than The Almighty God of The Holy Bible,,,BUT,,, GALT can you prove any part of The Bible right OR wrong with Historical documentation ??? Meanwhile…………………..
        Praise King Jesus for Salvation and Healing… Acts 2:38 is salvation…

        My intelligence ( real ) vs. God’s intelligence ( fantasy ) no contest and pointless.

        The significance or relevance of why I would bother to concern myself with
        the historical accuracy of the Bible? ( or whatever you mean or are referring to
        when you use the term Bible? )

        As you can see…….my purpose is “intelligent discussion”…..what is your’s?

        What is your “pattern recognition skill” telling you?

    The Sun and its source of energy seem to be natural adversaries of ego-, geo-centricity. Copernicus suggested this fountain of energy at the center of the solar system in 1543, and Galileo had to defend himself at trail in 1633 by saying the Copernican structure of the solar system is simply a Divine order that other persistent observers could decipher.

    I agree. The results of nuclear space-age measurements and observations revealed a Sun like the Hindu trinity – the creator, preserver and destroyer of the world and life.

    http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2013/01/04/Post-Cliff-a-Leaderless-Washington Wow, Check out Breitbart’s article “A celebrity president and a leaderless Washington” No myth here..

  • Tom

    Well it looks like the enemy of liberty has sucessfully destroyed an intelligent dialogue on a very timely and important topic. Good article.

    • GALT

      Pointless article…….and it would be “impossible to destroy” an “intelligent dialog”….

      so how does a pointless article inspire an “intelligent dialog”?

      and where is the “intelligent dialog” that was destroyed?

      • Tom

        I propose that all who desire sharing constructive mental preparation for the coming evil, to raise the level of communication by ignoring the angry rants that are designed to dumb us down. The devils will either have to change tactics or go away.

      • GALT

        Yup, that was “intelligent”!

        I can see why you’re upset……..you want “other” people to think you ARE intelligent,
        and just because you say something…….and this demonstrates, that you are?

        Sort of like “all men are created equal”…….therefor they are equally intelligent?

        That myth was disposed of………or did you miss it?

  • Tom

    The subject article is worthy of repeating:

    “Do Not Concern Yourself With Ridicule

    Our personal pride is not important. Safeguarding our egos is not important. Trying to please everyone all the time is impossible and also not important. Ridicule is used not only to discredit activists; it is also used to make them question their own resolve. If you cannot be embarrassed or browbeaten, then you cannot be made afraid and you cannot be defeated by mere words”

    I trust you will all be strengthened by this wise council.

    • GALT

      Unfortunately, mastering that ability, does not confer legitimacy or credibility, to any
      substantive ideas, thoughts, conclusions or logic that accompany it.

      Brandon has demonstrated that when challenged on “substance” that he has
      not mastered that skill or any of the others…..

      You, like Brandon initially, have said nothing of substance……..same message,
      different messenger……same result.

    How about, the government with assistance from it’s corporate media is pulling the wool over our eyes. Don’t be conned and think for yourself.

    • GALT

      Justin, I do not think you can find a single person in this “country” who would
      not agree with you…………

      Unfortunately……….that and $5.00 will buy you a cup of coffee at Starbucks.

      When you start providing “details”…….you will no longer have that “agreement”,
      so you have managed to produce and undeniable TRUTH, which has absolutely
      no value. ( and you have ended this “thread” by demonstrating why the article,
      was pointless and said nothing. )

      ” To conquer, first DIVIDE!!!!! ” ( and then HANG, separately! )

      • Charlie

        GALT,,,
        Psalm 14:1–3 says you are a “fool”,,,so,,,since your CA is higher than your MA, will you give us a number for your IQ? Meanwhile……………….
        Praise King Jesus for Salvation and Healing… Acts 2:38 is salvation…
