    A well done video. It truly describes what the SUPERFORCE is doing to bring America into the New World Order. And, I don’t think it makes any difference whether it is being brought to us by BO or Mittens Romney. God love you, Hap

      We should compare that list of abuses by the federal government to the list of reasons in the Declaration of Independence.

    Excellent Video Bob!__Being born in the 50′s I remember the days when the Factories were fully employed, Mom and Pop Shops Flourished and in the summer us kids could roam the streets with friends til’ 10 at night, and not be afraid. The days when gas was what, 45 cents a gallon.. If I remember correctly….

    Fast forward, I’ve never in my life time seen the level of corruption that we’ve been forced to swallow, a bitter pill claiming truth. Unless the morality of the people change, capitalism returns, without the “Crony Capitalism” and our to the communities learn to live as a unit, in which the people begin to think in terms as “we” instead of “me”___ I’m not sure we’ll see a recognizable America ever again.__and We need to ask God once again, to be our God and we will be his people…

    Such eloquence… Such truthfulness… Such tragedy…

  • Doc Sarvis

    This is rather funny in its excessive use of hyperbole and false premise. No depth of thinking or intellectual honesty. And Soooo dramatic. Ha!

    • Michael J.

      Doc Sarvis,
      Exactly the party line Critical Theorist response I would expect from brainwashed drones unaware of their own victimization by Political Correctness. Thanks for the confirmation.

  • alboy

    Improvise dont criticize.

    If you want America to fail re-elect king oblama…

  • Doc Sarvis

    Because I want America to succeed:
    I push our leadership to have the courage to get our country off the dwindling drug of oil and innovate in new energe technologies and energy use efficiencies.
    I perssure our leadership to stop a tax policy that burdens the middle class while concentrating the wealth in the top 1% of those who benefit most from what our country has to offer.
    I work on our leadership to phase our our combat troops that are in Afghanistan.
    I advocate for all adult couples who love and respect each other to be on par with other couples who have the same commitment.
    I promote wise use of our country’s resources with a commitment to be good stewards of God’s creation.
    I continue to argue for good political debate as opposed to name calling, hyperbole, and sound bites.
    Because I want America to succeed – these are some of the things I do.
    I don’t take the passive tone the fellow in this video takes and I don’t look to the negative – America failing. I actively work on positive things which I see as the way Americans and America became great

    • Thinking About

      Very good vision, you either love USA or you fight for it to fail, which side are you on. If we are successful it will be a win-win situation, if we continue to hope for failure it is a loose-loose situation. Together we stand, divided we fall. All the falsehoods told will not set anyone free because the next set of lies must be told in order to prop up the first lies. Be honest to yourself and perhaps those around you will be honest to you.

      Good little robot. No doubt there will be something extra in your next check for wasting space on this website, comrade. Pathetic – and well-programmed, as usual.

    • lively4Jesus

      Dear Doc Sarvis, your circular thinking is the reason America is failing =( R.I.P. America…this isn’t dramatic…it’s pitiful…you’re so called success ideals are flushing a once free people down the socialist/communist toilet…wake up drone…wake up…

      • Doc Sarvis

        So you would perfer to have us continue to pay more and more on an energy source that is harder and harder to find in easily extractable deposits. You would want to continue to have our country’s wealth redistributed into just a few people’s hands. You would perfer to continue sending soldiers over to Afghanistan for no other reason than to kill and be killed. I am very curious how you frame those positions as “the socialist/communist toilet”.

  • James

    There is, obviously, a well organized and well funded group of internationalists that are hell bent on destroying Christian America. Its roots are biblical.

    • Doc Sarvis

      As long as we fight for America and American ideals then Christian America, Jewish America, Shinto America, Islam America, Buddist America, and many other religions-America will thrive as it was meant to be.

      • James

        Doc, Peter said: “Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. …Neither is there salvation in any other; for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved” (Acts 4:10-12). (That is, the only religion God started on Earth is Christianity.)

      • Doc Sarvis

        James, I don’t doubt that Peter said that in some form (translation). What Peter said back tnen does not alter the stance of my statement above.

  • Jeremy Leochner

    Interesting since I know of very few people who advocate what he is mentioning. Is he saying that those who believe in alternative energy, global warming, government regulation and public school want America to fail. I believe in those things and I do not wish America to fail. I love my country and the freedoms it gives me. Mr. Livingston appears to be making an assumption where he ascribes motives to people based on their stated political beliefs. I might be wrong, but it appears he is equating those who disagree with him to essentially enemies of America. For the sake of argument I would like Mr. Livingston to clarify who specifically is advocating what he is talking about.

    If *I* wanted America to fail, I’d get a job writing scripts for Bob Livingston…

    • angelwannabe

      scot, seems all trolls have the same “work-at-home-projects” to get paid as you post! :P

    • Bob Livingston

      Dear Scot,

      What makes you think I’d hire you?

      Best wishes,

      • Scot

        Well, I’m writing for your blog right now, Bob. EVERYTHING I write is copyrighted. You owe me several FRN’s… You know – Federal Reserve Notes… You guys are way too serious, and way too PARANOID… I do enjoy reading your “conservative” clap-trap… It sure beats the Lib-tards psychobabble & gobbledygook… And, no, I don’t put much stock in ancient, dead Greeks and Romans… Sure, there is much wisdom there to be found, but it is at most a BASE for future endeavors… We will NEVER get to fly among the stars, when we are hobbled on our knees in prayer. And, as a race, as a species, we haven’t even been BORN yet… We are still in the womb of our Mother – our Mother Earth… Good discussion, though. Funny thing, don’t we ALL think we are good Americans? Aren’t we?
        Or do we only THINK we are? How many of YOUR thoughts are creations of the “MainStreamMedia”…???…

        Actually. No. You released your copyright to this blog by voluntarily posting here. It may not be public domain but you gave Mr Livingston permission to publish your work here in its entirety. For free even.

        Funny thing, don’t we ALL think we are good Americans? Aren’t we?
        Or do we only THINK we are? How many of YOUR thoughts are creations of the “MainStreamMedia”…???…

        There is an easy way to KNOW. Just compare your thoughts, words and deeds to First Principle.

        “First Principle. Your Creator gifted you with life and free will.
        How you use those 2 gifts and how you honor these gifts in others,
        is how you shall be judged.”

      • Bob Livingston

        Dear Scot,

        You write: “You guys are way too serious…” Trying to save the republic is serious business.

        Best wishes,

  • RB

    As usual, Bob has nailed it. However the real problem is much deeper than the New World Order agenda. What we are experiencing is a wholesale rejection of spiritually based principles by the so called “majority”. Many of these principles can be found in the tenets of mainstream organized religion, however if we are to extricate ourselves from this mess we must be prepared to go much deeper in our understanding of divine based principles. As Thomas Payne wrote ” Man cannot make principles, he can only discover them”. What important element of divine law have you discovered recently?

    • cawmun cents

      The answer of course depends on that which you attribute divinity to?
      For most here in America it is our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ,that we attribute that divinity to.
      But for many there is no clear answer to that question.
      For them it is necessary for an explaination on the lines of(Nicomachean Ethics),or that which Aristotle noted which was to bring the modern concept of ethics to the western world.
      The round and round of these concepts are enough to make anyones head swim,and Biblical principles are so much easier to understand.Yet to someone who has to have statistical data,or knowledgeable proof of this kind of ethic,it is a necessary read.
      Perhaps Marcus Aurelius could have an impact if his perceptions were perused.
      But ethical questions to deviates,and malcontents are never ones that form solid opinions or anwers.For these kind of ethics,you need marxism.
      That is in effect why they were written by Marx and Enghels to begin with.
      To differentiate from what for millenia had been the accepted criteria for ethos.
      Hence the left was born from western cultural perspective.
      A new way of thought,generated by deviates,for deviates.
      Their divinity is wrapped in their own actions.
      If that isnt patently obvious to you,then read what they have to say on this very blog,and you will definitely have a clearer picture of this.
      But what do I know?
      Apparently very little…….

      • Scot

        Nice try, Vicki, but my creator is not your creator. I can’t say about you, but I was created by *EVOLUTION*, which, as everybody knows, is how God designed creation to unfold…
        Who is “judging” who…???… But hey, we’re getting some good conversation here…
        This is much better than, say, Yahoo…
        (PS: It’s not “sarcasm”, it’s being facetious, or ironic…

        That is as I believe as well. Evolution (if it exists) would be the mechanism by which God created life as we know it.

        Then you go on to claim that your creator is not the same as mine. I said YOUR creator. Now are you denying that YOUR creator gave you life or are you denying that YOUR creator gave you free will?

        Who is “judging” who…???… But hey, we’re getting some good conversation here…

        Your creator will judge you of course. How that judgement works is based on the principles and laws made for you by YOUR creator.

        The rest of us will also judge you based on how you honor OUR gifts of LIFE and FREE Will. If you for instance advocate or actively steal our hard earned wealth as is advocated by many liberals we will judge you poorly.

    Lying Lying Liar Liar Liar Lair

    Have a great Day!!!!!

  • TIME


    Just when I was thinking it was safe to swim in the water!

    People; America is breaking into small bits only by the utter ignorance of its population who have all been trained to think in very small box’s, BTW – that are getting smaller day by day.

    Learn the TRUTH about the past, — that is rather than the glossy rhetoric thats framed in Public schools or by way of the Criminal Politicians, let alone the Criminal Mass media thats owned by that very 1% that so many of you like to rant about, guess what?

    They aren’t even Americans that 1%. The only thing you have right about them is that they do own everything, and they also have been using you like a well worn rug.
    They even have a special name for you;
    Worthless eaters = R’s,
    Useful idiots = D’s.
    What camp are you in? I bet your proud of your deeds and you dam well should be!

    Saddly very soon you will have NO voice, You will have no choice, and the mass media
    will become even worse than it is now, oh and your life will be worth crap on a stick, but hey you have an OPINION based on worthless rhetoric, what could be better?

    Please do keep in mind its all of US that created this bloody BEAST that knows no limits and yet we feed it daily by our ignorance of the TRUTH.
    Your TAX dollars, your wealth, Your health, and whats left of your very limited freedoms are going so fast that there are no words anylonger that are worth the effort.

    Sleep good little sheep.

    Let the D’s or the R’s by the way who are all owned by that very 1% that so many of you like to rant about, let them tell you what they will do for you and how you will benifit from their works.
    But first ask yourself this; just how odd is it how things only get worse no matter who holds the keys.

    Now go back to sleep like a good little sheep, or wake up, its your choice but saddly its also; to late.
    Yes some of you who think your a progressive, hey your masters who by the way are that 1% you like to rant about, ( news flash ) they are going to be sure you get progressed back to the dark ages.

    Peace and Love. May the Christ have pitty on your souls.
