The Lies You’re Told

The Lies You’re Told
Very intelligent people buy into lies and myths the same as the general population.

The elites are masters of propaganda. They have at their beck and call an army of “journalists” who never stray from the official state line for fear of being ostracized. They eagerly and happily spread lies and half-truths in order to gain and then keep their seats near the halls of power. Those who stray from the party line (Helen Thomas) are harshly dealt with.

They have learned that the more lies they tell, the more lies we believe. And the more lies we believe, the more dependent we become. Conversely, the fewer myths, lies and deceptions we succumb to, the less dependent — and, therefore, the freer — we are.

Propaganda is the science of persuasion and mind control. Its purpose is to forge allegiance to a political order or to ensure acceptance — and, therefore, consumption — of a particular product whether it is needed or beneficial. Propaganda victimizes the public by changing and controlling its belief system to the benefit of the political establishment or for the monetary gain of corporate interests and the medical establishment.

I have learned the power of propaganda. I have watched as otherwise intelligent and thoughtful people have had their minds manipulated so that they acted against their own best interests as a result of propaganda. It seems that organized and sophisticated propaganda is able to operate above the threshold of intelligence. In other words, without some imperative to trigger inquiry, very intelligent people buy into lies and myths the same as the general population. The lies and myths then become conventional wisdom. The human mind rarely accepts a challenge to conventional wisdom.

When confronted with a challenge to the established belief system, the mind closes off. When this happens, the individual employs avoidance behavior, writes off the new knowledge as conspiracy theory and labels it as kooky, insane or stupid. The information is then dismissed, never to be considered again, even when the facts support the new knowledge.

The esoteric purpose of propaganda is to extract wealth and labor illegally as concealed involuntary servitude. The people who use propaganda to persuade the populace against their best interests create myths and sell them as benefits.

Here, I break down some of the lies.

Lie: The War on Terror. The so-called War on Terror is actually a war on the American people. If al-Qaida is our enemy, as we’re told, why did we provide it aid and cover in Libya and why are we providing it aid in Syria? If its mastermind Osama bin Laden — who was never charged in connection to 9/11 — is dead, why are we constantly hearing new rumors of supposed terror plots? The FBI is supposedly keeping us safe from terrorists, yet it is setting up patsies, planning and giving them the means to carry out terror attacks so that it can swoop in and save the day. All of the recently uncovered “terrorist plots” in America are FBI creations. The original underwear bomber was under CIA surveillance and assisted onto the plane by a CIA asset. The latest   underwear bomber was a CIA double agent. The so-called War on Terror was fabricated to benefit the military-industrial complex and the vast security apparatus that was bound to develop following the 9/11 attacks and the passage of the liberty-stealing USA Patriot Act. We still do not know the whole story behind the 9/11 attacks. Even the 9/11 Commission admits this and blames stonewalling, lying and cover-up by people in government.

Lie: The West is in peril from Islamofascism: Like the War on Terror and so-called attempted terrorist attacks in the United States, the threat of Islamofascism is a creation of the shadowy intelligence networks of the United States, Great Britain and Israel, which have provided funding and training for terror networks. This is outgrowth of government’s propensity to create a problem so that the populace will clamor for relief. Government can then demand and receive additional funding and establish additional control in order to address the problem it created.

Lie: President Barack Obama killed Osama bin Laden. Bin Laden is a bogeyman who gets pulled out of a drawer whenever the political winds blow the wrong direction. George W. Bush did this first, and then Obama. Bin Laden was long dead and his flesh rotted away when Obama sent Seal Team 6 into Pakistan. He is but one in a line of terrorists who are killed and revived when needed.

Lie: Iran is a direct threat to the United States and Israel: Officials in government and at the U.N. have repeatedly admitted that Iran is not developing a nuclear weapon. Iran is a signatory to the nuclear non-proliferation treaty, and inspectors from the U.N. International Atomic Energy Agency are permanently stationed in Iran to monitor its nuclear program. Iran President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad never called for Israel to be wiped off the map. Israel has nuclear weapons and would respond with overwhelming force if Iran tried to attack. Iran does not possess a missile capable of reaching the United States. Yet the drumbeat goes on from the neocon stooges like Senators John McCain, Lindsey Graham and Joe Lieberman as well as from the talking heads on TV (see the first paragraph for explanation).

Lie: America is a democracy. Constitutional republican government passed away with the election of the tyrant Abraham Lincoln. Stealth, gradualism and propaganda caused the populace to accept that America is a democracy. Democracy is a euphemism for fascism. American democracy has the trappings of representative government but is fascism in reality. Call it benevolent totalitarianism. Banksters and corporate interests control the President and Congress and, therefore, control the workings of government.

Lie: The Federal Reserve controls inflation. The Federal Reserve is the world engine of inflation. Since the Federal Reserve Act was passed in 1913, the purchasing power of the dollar has almost been destroyed. During the 100 years prior to the Federal Reserve, there was gold-backed currency that kept its purchasing power. The people would not have accepted a central bank, but the elites used propaganda to convince the populace the Federal Reserve was not a central bank and that the banksters opposed it. It was the first great lie of the 20th century.

Lie: The economy is improving. Despite what the Obamaphile mainstream media report, there is no measure by which the economy is showing a rebound. While the “official” unemployment rate dropped from 8.2 percent to 8.1 percent, real unemployment climbed from 22.2 percent to 22.3 percent. More than 46 million people remain on food stamps. Housing prices continue to drop. Inflation is much greater than reported. Food stamps and social welfare programs are the only things holding off revolution like the Arab Spring in Tunisia and Bahrain. (Most other supposed Arab Spring uprisings were instigated by agent provocateurs in order to depose puppet leaders who had outlived their usefulness or depose leaders who would not be U.S. puppets.)

Lie: Your Congressman is working on your behalf. The elites in Congress and the bureaucrats who do their work are employees of the government and their loyalty is to the government and their bankster and corporatist masters.

Lie: There is a difference between the Republican Party and the Democratic Party. The two parties exist to provide a false paradigm to keep Americans divided. Their goal is to accumulate power and maintain a majority so their selected benefactors can be adequately rewarded from the Federal treasury.

Lie: The American healthcare system is the best in the world. Healthcare in America exists as a drug cartel to further enrich the already super-rich pharmaceutical companies. It is a tremendous burden on the backs of the people. Medical practitioners are, for the most part, completely brainwashed. Healthcare would be more accurately termed symptomology as what passes for healthcare is the treatment of symptoms, not disease. Organized medicine is now the third-leading cause of death. American healthcare is a Malthusian dream to reduce the population under the pretense of doctoring for sickness and disease.

Lie: American obesity means people eat too much and exercise too little. Americans eat too much processed and acidic foods and consume too much high fructose corn syrup. Americans suffer from full-belly starvation. The American diet is high in calories and very low in nutrition. This is a diet that builds an obese and sick population and leads to early death. The American diet is acidic, and acidification of the body brings death. A vegetarian diet is alkaline and it is the diet for health and longevity. Disease thrives on acidity. Death is full-body acid saturation. Unfortunately, eating a healthy vegetarian diet is becoming difficult thanks to machinations of Monsanto, Bayer and others who are creating genetically modified organisms and calling it food and saturating the ground with harmful pesticides and defoliants like Agent Orange, actions I term government-sponsored agricultural terrorism. And unless you are incredibly discerning in your selection of meats, you are consuming antibiotics and steroids that are creating havoc in your body.

Lie: Euthanasia is a quick and painless death. Euthanasia can happen over many years as drugs, and “immunizations” often kill slowly. The system can reduce the population without blame if it’s done over time so as to separate cause and effect. People don’t need drugs or doctors. Sick people, especially, don’t need drugs or doctors. They need nutrition.

Lie: Income taxes fund the government. The income tax system is a cover operation for the regulation of the regime of paper money. It facilitates efforts to maintain dossiers on citizens and transfer wealth. Ask yourself this: If the government can and does create (print) all the money it needs, why does it need taxes?

Lie: Savings and retirement. The money creators cause inflation to melt your savings and retirement while you sleep. CDs and bank accounts do not preserve you savings, especially in recent years with the Fed’s artificially low interest rates. The dollar is inflation. It is set to self-destruct. This is theft by deception. The true meaning of currency destruction with inflation is war upon the people. Then there are individual retirement accounts and 401(k)s. Congress set up the tax code to encourage investment in these scams in order to prop up the stock market and give the illusion of a robust economy. It created penalties that discouraged you from accessing your money, giving little choice but to watch as your nest egg lost more than half its value in the 2008 crash. Rather than help the now-destitute people, Congress rewarded the banksters who created the problem. Now there are discussions under way for the government to confiscate the billions of dollars in those accounts and replace it with another government sponsored Ponzi scheme.

Lie: A vote for Ron Paul is a vote for Obama. The elites in both parties and the bureaucrats in the Washington, D.C., cesspool are terrified of Ron Paul and are doing all they can to defeat him. There is a full-on media blackout of his candidacy. On the rare occasion Paul’s name is mentioned it is followed by the caveat, “He can’t win.” The Republican establishment operates for sole purpose of pleasing the Israel lobby, the banksters, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the military industrial complex. Paul is hated by them because he has openly stated he wants to eliminate alphabet soup government agencies that provide a revolving door between government and industry and cut off their gravy train: perpetual war. The banksters hate him because he wants to cut off their gravy train: the Federal Reserve and its endless money printing. So the Republican voter is propagandized into believing that he should abandon his principals and vote for a candidate he does not like or agree with on many points. The American voter has forgotten that it is the candidate’s job to provide a platform and record acceptable to the majority of the voting population. It is the voter’s job to accept or reject the candidate based on that record and platform. Anything less is a sellout of principals. A vote for either Mitt Romney or Obama is a vote for continued and reinforced fascism.

    A pertinent article from Daniel James Sanchez:

    Note that the Liberals Daniel talks about are Classical Liberals, not the kind of people we call Liberals today.
    Let’s not let the statist 1% win.

    • FreedomFighter


      By Benjamin Smith

      On the heels of NDAA, ObamaCare, Stimulus, Son of Stimulus, Patriot Act, takeover of auto, energy, media and movie industries, and the relentless implementation of Agenda 21… the Obama regime running our country into the ground has issued an updated Executive Order which suggests the probability of impending MARTIAL LAW.

      We are left to scratch our heads and ask……… Why now?

      The only possible answer is…

      America is in fact, right now, in the vicious throes of a Cold Civil War.

      Cold as in non-violent and Civil as in nationwide; an attempt to force a new government-controlled ideology upon an unwilling public.

      And the forces implementing this agenda are relentless.

      The National Defense Resources Preparedness Executive Order is nothing more than a blatant attempt to stir trouble of the highest intensity. The regime is looking to see who jumps and to see the movement that happens amongst the most vocal defenders of our rights, (you and me). They are poking us to see if we will go over the edge and do something so stupid that there will be a crisis… it will be our fault… and if any of our number are provoked enough to rise to the proverbial bait — they will finally lower the hammer… all in the name of “national security and public safety.”

      These are classic Soviet style tactics designed and implemented in an effort to make us react, get us to either flinch and shut up, or overreact and get suppressed. It is also an exercise so they can gather intel on who is who and who has pull.

      Many of us are trained. We know this game.

      But we cannot stand down. We cannot be silent. We MUST stand together as one…WITHOUT VIOLENCE, for there is no going back from that; we MUST speak out with the conviction and the authority granted by our unalienable rights and the United States Constitution!

      Remember Martin Niemöller and his immortal wisdom about the failure of courage in speaking out; “Then they came for me and there was no one left to speak for me.”

      The regime is limiting our speech on a daily basis, so speak up while you still can. But be smart about what you say. Do not be tempted to phrase your words in terms of violence. For this is the way of the enemy and we should never stoop to their low and bloody tactics, whether in word or deed.

      Keep preparing for rough times ahead. Stock your pantry in preparation for lean days, even as the regime attempts to make such things illegal. Focus your mind on liberty, that it should never die.

      I cannot tell you exactly what is coming but I know, as do you, that something unprecedented in American history, perhaps even all human history, is coming soon.

      This is the common theme in most of all the conversations that I hear… there is something coming, no one really knows what it is; they just know that whatever it is, it will be momentous. The discussions range from quantifying this “something” to describing what we will do after “IT” happens. I even hear serious open conversation of the Biblical “End of Times.” People, even those outside the grassroots Tea Party movement, feel it in their bones.

      Speculation runs rampant as people ponder the feeling in their gut. It could begin with something as simple as personal unemployment. It may be the 2012 general election — or NOT. Or it could be any number of events that will trigger Martial Law and the now legal occupation of America by her own troops, under the un-Constitutional NDAA.

      Those types of events are limitless and terrifying. It could be a full scale crash of our economy and dollar. It could be a new World War launched by Israel attacking Iran, or vice versa. It could be the launch of the rumored North Korean EMP attack designed to hurl America 100 years back into pre-electronic time. It could be Islamic jihadists succeeding in a catastrophic terrorist attack. It could be the enemy within if the Obama Administration’s aided and abetted “Occupy” movement transfers and escalates the violence witnessed in Oakland to the rest of the country.

      Whatever the trigger might be, we are about to get the education of a lifetime on what it is to struggle. It will either make us more committed Americans, earning the Latin communitas – or it will literally tear us apart. I believe that the source of this struggle springs from the complex sublimity of global despotic tyranny – ultimate oppression.

      Our culture is in the midst of a moral dilemma where bad is now good and what was deemed originally American by our Founders is now un-American. The Founders are all but outlawed because soon, unless those who hate freedom are halted, after the regime finishes destroying the Bill of Rights they will also totally erase the Founders from the educational curriculum. They will outlaw the works of our Founding Fathers and destroy their very existence, burning books and erasing American liberty from history. It will be done incrementally and they will transform our history into one that aligns with their totalitarian views.

      Every single day we have now turned to reacting to what the regime is putting out instead of looking to where they are taking us. The powers pulling the levers of tyranny are every day more draconian and daring in scope as they usurp our institutions and drain the power from our Constitution and Bill of Rights. Most all of the stories that are important and should be seen are buried by the complicit media at the end of the weekly news cycles and under the cloak of darkness.

      In Quantum Theory there is a concept called a singularity or a black hole. Just as a black hole cannot be seen in space, the actual truth and facts of the world situation and the intentions of the U.S. government must be judged by the influence exerted on the objects around it — extortion, manipulation, intimidation, czars, fascist over- regulation designed to purposefully strangle an economy and legislate away your right to defend and provide for yourself — all in an effort to force you into their food line dependency and powerlessness!

      The gravity of a black hole is so monumental that even light collapses upon itself. And in the same way, the lights of liberty are also collapsing upon themselves as media, government officials and useful idiots corrupt our understanding of American Exceptionalism so we can never really know the nefarious plot that seeks to turn our good country into an empty carcass they can declare the “failed” American Experiment. Their answer to the great philosopher’s question, “Can man govern himself” will surely be no.

      It must be noted that this current Administration is not the only perpetrator. A long history of Administrations, both Republican and Democrat, have eaten away at our freedom. This Obama Administration, so fatally attacking our liberty, is just the one closing the noose. The broad strokes of true Communism were tightly woven into the ObamaCare and Stimulus bills, yet most Americans had no clue. The technocratic, lawyer-istic drool contained within those bills made it even harder to comprehend that Soft Tyranny was the true intent. And Soft Tyranny always ends in Hard Tyranny — a horror not yet experienced by Americans never exposed to adversity and real stress — where tyrannical forces purposefully separate us from each other, turn us against each other (compulsory service, Ready Reserve, NDAA and the coercions in 5201 of ObamaCare) and control every aspect of our lives… lives which then become CRUEL because YOUR life will now be totally and completely ruled by THEIR choice.

      IF THEY WIN, even the passion to be free and ultimately the reality itself of being free will be as if these blessings have never existed. Tyranny can never allow such powerful ideas to remain in the collective consciousness.

      They will burn our books and they will attempt to erase our God. Because without the concept of freedom codified in books by the brilliant minds of Cicero, Locke and Montesquieu; without the inspiration and institutions from our Founders; without the guidance of God to the understanding that there is a higher power than the government, there would never have been our nation “conceived in liberty.”

      But while I believe this struggle in which we are engaged is the struggle of the century, nay, the struggle of all centuries, I also believe in American Exceptionalism.

      I believe that the heart and soul of America is strong and vibrant and that we shall not falter in our commitment to liberty.

      We live NOW in the times that will try men’s souls.


      Are you a Summer Soldier, a Sunshine Patriot only to speak out when times are easy and there is no risk?

      Or are you an American Exceptionalist who will STAND with me, RIGHT NOW to preserve our liberty, our beliefs and the American Way?

        And he is also SOOO right that they’re followin’ the book, play by play! The lack of imagination in their assault is a harbinger of the things to come!

Different people have been tryin’ to warn us all for years what was comin’, especially a lot of our artists!

        Listen to a little preachin’ from Brother Mellencamp, he that hath ears, let them hear!

        Wha’d ja say Boss?! Pete, PEOPLE?!! Right in front of the memorial of the TYRANT who just happened to be in office when the 2nd greatest EVIL that this country this country has EVER condoned was abolished!!! TYRANT Bob?!! I believe that Lincoln took the appropriate measures at a time of unprecidented natioal conflict, OUR NATION WAS COMIN’ APART AT THE SEAMS!!! I wonder what the Obama Memorial will look like?! LOL!!!

        I have said it before, and I will say it again. Hitler wrote in Mein Kampf that if you tell a lie, keep it simple, and keep repeating it over and over, People will begin to accept it as the truth. Obama is using this principle expertly, and just like Hitler did in the thirties, Obama is likely to try to take the country to a dictatorship.

      Bob your articles are always an interesting read and while agreeing with your libertarian philosopy on some things, I think there are some places that you are off base. First let me start by sayin’ that Ron Paul ALREADY won in the the numbers he put up, in the DEDICATION of his supporters (Of which you are supurb example Bob!), and in the GROWTH of the size of his faithful!!! Please don’t get me wrong Bob, I would pick Dr. Paul over Mitt anyday, but seein’s that I’m a convicted felon (Over a trumped up escape charge for bein’ somewhere other than work while on work release.), my vote don’t count anywho. But as Jim Morrison so eloquently put it Bob, “When the musics over, turn out the lights, turn out the lights, turn out the…”! I think that you and Dr. Paul both SEVERELY underestimate the threat that comes from Islam Bob! When you’ve got father’s murdering their daughters in this country, and then giving the man’s religious beliefs a consideration in his defense?!! WHERE’S THE SEPERATION CLAUSE HERE?!! Our laws say that that young woman was an individual with CERTAIN UNALIENABLE RIGHTS and NOT the CHATTLE of her father!!! Thomas Jefferson, whom I think is ONE of our greatest leaders and THINKERS, was respobsible for the very first English translation of the Quran because he UNDERSTOOD that the best way to understand your enemy (The world navys and the shipping industry were being TERRORIZED by the muslim pirates who infested the waters off of north Africa’s Barbary Coast.) was to try and understand the religion to which they were so zealous! A lesson I think we should ALL take to heart!!! So you’re sayin’ that Ahmadineanutjob didn’t say he wanted to wipe Israel off the face of the map?! That would mean that we are bein’ lied to by our MSM, because that’s what the translators said that he said. I speak a little Farse and believe that’s pretty much what he said, are you accusing the translators of lying Bob?!! It’s the same thing that the Islamofacsists have been sayin’ since May 14th, 1948! “Allah is our objective. The Prophet is our leader. Quran is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope.” – The motto of the Muslim Brotherhood, this is the same group who so prouldly proclaimed responsibility for the assassination of Anwar Sadat in 1981. And these are pretty much the sentiments of ALL the Islamic FUNDALMENTALISTS along with the COMPLETE ANNILATION of the country of Israel, and the US!!! Sworn to Bob! So IF you have PROOF that the translators have been lyin’ to us, let’s see it!
      Propaganda was invented in the US ( and I would go as far as to say that ALL we hear anymore is propaganda, for one side or the other, news reporters no longer print the truth and let you make up your own mind, they’re ALL opinion writers. for one side of the lie or the other. I do agree with you that this political system of ours is nothing more than sophisticated, I really not so sure about that, Kabuki theater. It’s all collectivism and headed in the same direction! I truly BELIEVE that when and IF the American people ever open their BLINDED eyes, LOOK OUT!!! There’s gonna be hell to pay, and let me send this message to our MSM, I definately wouldn’t want to be anybody who was even thought to have lied to the American people!!! Are you listening Mr. O.Reilly?!!

      • Bob Livingston

        Dear Tom W.,

        You write: “So you’re sayin’ that Ahmadineanutjob didn’t say he wanted to wipe Israel off the face of the map?!” That is what I’m saying. Did you read the link embedded in that section?

        You write: “That would mean that we are bein’ lied to by our MSM, because that’s what the translators said that he said… So IF you have PROOF that the translators have been lyin’ to us, let’s see it!” That is what I’m saying. Again, I direct you to the link and a link embedded in that article.

        Finally, for your reading pleasure.

        Best wishes,

        Tom W, you are correct. Bob has a blind spot when it comes to Islam; he seems to have succumbed to the taqiyya of the Islamists who assert that 9/11 was a setup job and possibly a Zionist plot. Furether, he “pooh-poos” the “War on Terror” as being a fabrication of the one-worlders wishing to divert attention from their nefarious activities. Well, the “War on Terror” is actually the “War Against the Infidels” being waged by islam against this country and the rest of the free world. This war has been going on since Muhammad ravaged the Middle East, and has become far more intense since the Muslim states in many instances have grown rich from selling oil to the Kuffars. Europe is rapidly becoming Islamized and Muslim groups are workin feverishly to subvert our country.

        Here is an article by Danish psychologist Nicolai Sennels about Muslims and their philosophy, which explains a lot about their interaction with non-Muslims:

        Here is a basic explanation of the texts and tenets of Islam and why this ideology is so dangerous to freedom:

        Unfortunately, Bob seems to not understand Islam and its dangers. He is truly misleading when he denies that Iran “is in the process of developing nuclear weapons and knows nothing of Shiite “Twelver theology which drives Ahmadinejad and the Mullahs…

      • Tom W.

        Dear Euskaldun, thank you so much for the links!!! The ONLY way that those of us who trying to be watchmen on the walls to learn is for us to be able to freely share information It don’t take long to realize after gettin’ into SERIOUS study of the issues today that, WE’RE BEIN’ PURPOSELY LIED TO BY SOMEBODY, and what they’re teachin’ in our schools sure don’t jive with what I was taught or ! believe is the truth!!! They see their window of opportunity closing fast! Watch for an all out assault on our 1st Amendment rights on the web!!! BE READY FOLKS! If you don’t know Jesus as your Lord and Savior, YOU’RE NOT READY!!!

      • DaveH

        What we do understand, Euskaldun, is the proclivity of people like yourself to attack others and then wonder why they attack you. It seems odd to me that these very dangerous jihadists have been relatively nonexistent in our country since the supposed 9/11 attacks. Do you really believe our Government is that effective in controlling them in our country, when they can’t even control them with the most advanced military in the world in Afghanistan and Iraq?
        It’s bad enough that you give other innocent Americans a bad name with your aggression, but at least have the decency to do it with your own money, not ours.

      • Modern Patriot

        Euskaldun, I think you and Tom W are missing something very important here. I’m sure Mr. Livingston has the same take as I do. I know Islam is not a “religion of peace” as so often claimed, and there are a large percentage of it’s followers who wish to indoctrinate the world into islam and eradicate those who resist. However, the issue at hand also happens to be a perfect example of one of the techniques that the powers that be use with deadly effect. They take a credible threat, in this case Islam, and use it as the root to justify the objectives they have in mind. This serves to provide a factual basis for their argument which they can use to provide a wave of lies and propaganda that being built on factual information, provides a means to destroy criticism by using altered or misinterpreted documentation.
        This whole islam argument has another more serious effect. The powers that be effectively found a way in which they could take a tremendous percentage of those who pose the greatest threat to their goals, and pit them against each other. This is apparent when one examines the belief system of many “Christians” in this country. I am a Christian myself, but it is clear that many who claim to be in todays day and age do so without true understanding of Christ’s principles. Islam, is easily painted as the big boogeyman, and countless religious groups effectively ignore the tyrannical actions of their government so long as they are veiled in the lislamist threat. A perfect example of this is a quote from Tom W’s comment:

        “I think that you and Dr. Paul both SEVERELY underestimate the threat that comes from Islam Bob! When you’ve got father’s murdering their daughters in this country, and then giving the man’s religious beliefs a consideration in his defense?!! ”

        In this case, Islam isn’t the threat, but it is cleverly designed to be. Who ultimately holds the power to make such a decision in this case? It isn’t any islamic cleric but the judicial system of the USA. Obviously, the actions referenced in the quote from which this exert was pulled are inexcusable. But even more so is the actions on behalf of our government to allow ANY defense of such actions to be considered, whether in the name of religion or anything else. This also makes a perfect example to highlight my other argument. How can the same government that allows it’s judicial system to consider a defense based on islam, be trusted to wage any war against terrorists who share the same views? Of course the government takes great care to never associate the “war on terror” specifically with islam, and that gives them all the more leeway in labeling any group they see fit as a terrorist organization.

        The powers that are truly running the show are vile and evil no doubt, but it must not be forgotten that they are also terribly intelligent. The way they have cemented into so many peoples minds the justification for their “war on terror” is astounding. So many of these people would never have even considered letting the government have such free range had it not been so carefully engineered.

        Obviously, the islamic belief system does not fit in the system of American values and obviously there are those who need to be dealt with. However, the way we are “dealing” with them no is nowhere near effective and downright illogical. I simply hope that people can begin to REALLY open their eyes and see the big picture before it’s too late. That is if it’s not already. God bless the USA and especially those who care to fight for it!

        As a point of interest, in May at a political meeting, a candidate for our state’s education department that selects book options for the public school systems pointed out that, as she has served in that capacity for the past few years, she has seen a number of history and social studies books that promote Islam but have nothing regarding Christianity or speak ill of Christianity and Judaism. There are those elected from other districts in our state that would choose such books. If you have children in public schools, check their history books for accuracy and for the way religions of the world are presented in those texts selected by your state and schools.

      Thanks for that post Bob.
      I wholeheartedly agree with everything you said.

      Imagine that! me the guy who is constantly accused of being a communist, socialist, libtard, amongst other colorful names here on this site feeling and seeing the world almost exactly as you do.

      But I must admit I mostly disagree with a couple of your writers like Ben Crystall, Chip Wood and Wayne Allyn Roots and their view of the world.

  • Michael J.

    A focus on the fomenters of purpose built propaganda is needed. Burn through the plethora of puppets they stand up just to be knocked down, thus obsorbing the discontent of the massess while protecting the real purpetraitors from harm or even acknowledgement.

    I hear rumblings from our nations military and police forces, shocked to awakeness in ever increasing numbers. The majority of which are driven to upold The Constitution without the necessity of having had sworn an oath to do so. I have faith in our nations military and police forces who are the best of the best inspite of the lies used to inspire them. The quest to regain and then retain freedom is not an insurmountable task for those who have the will of righteousness and love of country as an ally.

      And the reason for that Michael is that our military is still for the most part made up of fine, decent, honorable young men and women. With more and more of them waking up to the truth, the more the window closes on their vision. This plan is hundreds, if not thousands of years in the makin’! I don’t think think they’re goin’ down without a fight, even bein’ for the most part a bunch of over-educated spoiled rotten rich ideological fascists that they are! They’re not gonna fight, if they can’t con someone to fight for them (The COWS?!! LOL!!!), they’re TOTALLY SOL!!!

    • Buster the Anatolian

      One thing I find disturbing (?) about Mr Livingston’s article. He seems to imply we should just ignore the possibility of a terrorist threat or Islamofascism threat as well as any possibility that Iran would/could do anything. While I do agree with his position that the government uses these to its advantage in order to enlarge its control over us and even encourages if not outright starts the “plots” it breaks up we cannot ignore the possibility of various terrorist acts occuring. There are many out there that hate us. Some of them hate us because of the actions of the US and some that hate us just because we are different.

      Iran is a threat to both us and Israel. I agree Iran is no military threat to us. The threat to the US is a relatively small but still significant one of some type of terrorrist activity. This threat certainly does not call for the kind of “sabre ratteling” we see from the government but rather a watchfulness by the security services. The threat to Israel is much greater whether it is a direct attack or more likely the sponsership of terrorist acts against Israel.

  • GALT

    A vote for Ron Paul is…………????????

    A euphemism for………..??????????

    “I have learned the power of propaganda. ”

    “When confronted with a challenge to the established belief system, the mind closes off. When this happens, the individual employs avoidance behavior, writes off the new knowledge as conspiracy theory and labels it as kooky, insane or stupid. The information is then dismissed, never to be considered again, even when the facts support the new knowledge.”

    I agree Bob, you have learned……and while the lies you cite may be “accurate”, it does not grant support for either the actual causation nor your suggested “solution”…..since
    Ron Paul does not represent nor have the grasp of the “systemic” problems,,,,,,,and while he has addressed what he believes are a few “symptoms”, he can effect very little….and would change…….nothing.

    Also, the elites are not in government……..the whores of the elites are in government.
    The “elites” have transcended government’s………and are now beyond any control.

    This reality is easily demonstrated by a simple listing of countries and corporations by the assets they control………and I know you are aware of this “list”.

    But here is the kicker, Bob………if you take your lies and you apply “accountability” for
    those responsible and could put an “end” to those entities……..what would be the result?

    What would be the economic impact of ending, agri-business, the military industrial complex, big pharma, the medical malpractice industry and all those other entities, that
    exist to provide support for them…….educational institutions, lawyers, think tanks and lobbyists, etc………..what would you have left? ( and this is not to say, or imply that they should be left in place……….but such a shift…….eliminating those who profit from doing harm……….would represent a fundamental alteration in “philosophy” and have certain disruptive consequences which have to be considered……..after all, these are currently
    those who lay claim to being “producer’s”……..are they not? The winner’s of the free market capitalist globalized economic system……..?

    Now there is “new knowledge”, but Ron Paul is not one of it’s representatives, nor does
    your list of lies seem to suggest anything as far as solutions that would be considered as
    having embraced any serious consideration of it. It does look suspiciously like what
    used to be “conventional wisdom”…….which has failed to prevent what does exist….which doesn’t hold much promise as a solution of suggesting we return?

    These are just observations and questions, of course but they are sure to provoke
    a lot of that “avoidance behavior” you cite…….Cui bono………and at whose expense?

        you right back to the point of the observations and the questions asked )

        Which is a whole lot of rhetoric when the phrase ” I don’t know. ” would have been not only accurate, but truthful, as well. You may wish to consider adopting this stance, as it would seem to apply to your opinions about what you claim to know, but do not.

      Dear Galt,

      I agree with a lot of what you have posted, But saddly the fact is that the {ruling class}, aka the “13 Bloodlines” feel that they are the direct blood line of the Gods, thats why they feel that they are above everyone else.
      Afterall its their “BIRTH RIGHT” as far as they see it.

      We can rise above all of it, but people have to keep in mind that this is not just an American thing, its a world wide affair.

    • MAP

      Galt, you call Bob a liar. Yet you provide no evidence of this. I assume we are to take your word for it. But by what standard are we to accept you word, rather than Bob’s? Also, if I take your cryptic musings correctly, you believe things should just be left as they are, since, I guess, that is the way they are. This is like saying, if you owned a business and you caught an employee stealing money from your business, you would just let it go because that’s just the way it is….? Are we to believe that injustice is to be tolerated because it exists? I, for one, find your argument silly in the extreme. So much so, that you destroy your own credibility. Hence, it is clear – to me at least – which of you is the liar.

      • eddie47d

        Galt said that “this doesn’t mean they should be left in place” Sounds like he is also willing to fight that which is wrong but understands how entrenched they have become. The public did take on Big Pharma and won some concessions in pricing. The bigger battle of Big Pharma propagandizing medicine and telling folks they have to take their product or die is still ahead. We still have a ways to go but have to become united in exposing their methods and the harm their medicines can do.

      The first observation I would like to make about this line of posts is that that was an excellent post GALT and named a lot of the sins that are takin’ place in this world market of liars and thieves! These practitioners of unbridled capitalism are about to push the capitalist system over the cliff!!! Capitalism without morals or restraints is the “Love of Money” spoken of in the Bible as the ROOT of ALL evil! (emphasis mine)
      The second observation is the motto of our adversary’s is “Divide and Conquer!”.
      We would ALL do good to consider another motto from our revolutionary days and the State motto for the Commonwealth of Kentucky, “United We Stand, Divided We Fall”!!!

      • DaveH

        You know nothing of Unbridled Capitalism. Please read this book and get an education before you speak any more:

      • Tom W.

        So you sayin’ your opinion of who’s right in this massive problem is the only one out there DaveH?!! Because if it is, you’re probably about as smart as you look! Whenever there’s a conversation amongst the students of Bible prophecy concerning the “Last Days”, the topic of the US always comes up because there is not a clear-cut reference to anything remotely resembling the US amongst the powers that be present at that point in the future. If you study the prophecy of the “Little Horn” in the book of Daniel ch. 7, you’ll see that when this “Little Horn” (The anti-Christ!) comes to power over a 10 kingdom amalgamation, that three of the kingdoms fall before him. Now please hear me! I’m not saying that I KNOW this is how it gonna go down, I’m only speculating! I believe that that’s the best any of us can do aqt this point and time and WATCH the ones who claim to KNOW!!! God’s Holy Word says to WATCH them, because they will come with lyin’ signs and wonders!!! (II Thess. 2:9) Now I reason, I repeat, I reason this to mean that the Little Horn will be from a power not recognized as one of the tops. I do suspect that he will be a blue-blood of European royalty. But anyway, back to the missing US question. Could we be one of the kingdoms to fall before the rise of the Little Horn, or Jer. ch. 50 and Rev. ch. 18 are almost identical in that they seem to prophesy of the same avent, the fall of material Babylon! Read both chapters! The simularities to the US are SPOOKY!!! They will give you duck-pimples on top of your goose-bumps! Especially if you bear 9/11 in mind as you read Rev. 18! MERCY HEAVENLY FATHER, MERCY!!!
        Don’t you just love it when I bring up Bible prophecy DaveH?!! LOL!!! Now go change your tampon!

        “Go to now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you. Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are motheaten. Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days. Behold, the hire of the labourers who have reaped down your fields, which is of you kept back by fraud, crieth: and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of sabaoth. Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton; ye have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter. Ye have condemned and killed the just; and he doth not resist you. Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain. Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh.” – James 5:1-8 (KJV)

    • Modern Patriot

      Your post paints the picture of a demented individual. It is exactly the type of “chicken or egg” argument that never serves to produce results, only to create a pattern of thought that is self defeating.

      The article points out valid points that are core to the issues at hand concerning the dissolution of our society and it’s values. Ron Paul stands as the only viable candidate that has any demonstrable concern for these issues. Yes, it’s true that if he were elected, he would have a difficult time making serious changes as he would be at war with the House, not to mention the lobbyists and their interests. But to write as you do, that his election would be inconsequential, is not just illogical but downright ignorant.

      It’s no secret that there are so many variables in the equation of “what is wrong and how do we fix it” but you have to start somewhere. Useless criticism such as yours only makes matters worse. You claim to only be posing “questions” regarding the topics addressed in the article, but the “questions” you pose only serve to pollute the message here. Anyone with any critical thinking skills can see that this article does not attempt to address the whole of the issue and your rebuttal addresses things which are several orders of magnitude above the scope which was intended. I have to agree with other posters; you are either a closet liberal or you have another more sinister agenda. Or your thinking is really just demented.

        Hi Dave,

        You just gotta love the fact that Mr. Livingston is telling nothing more that the “TRUTH” – yet so many who have posted thus far feel its some how bent lies.
        This really clearly displays just how far into the {“Control Grid” / Brain Washed} most folks really are.

        Saddly these are the same people who also have done a big Phat ZRRO in so far as far as any form of real research on any single topic noted by Mr. Livingston.
        Rather than any form of noted research – they would rather quote / use the same formats used such as the AP, UPI, UP, etc. to keep them within the control grids, yet they use these bent platforms as some kind of proof that Mr. Livingston is trying to deceive them. Who is it that who owns these media platforms they use as their form of proof, non other than the Rothschilds or the Rockeffer’s & Disney BTW – all of whom just for the record are the 1% that so many keep yacking about!

        Now thats just to bloody rich!

    It’s interesting that the problems and solutions Dr. Paul talks about are classed as radical and extremist. Many naive, gullible and ignorant people take this bait, hook line, and sinker, especially the so-called liberals. But what Dr. Paul says was common knowledge and accepted principles prior to 1861. Dr. Paul is about returning to the founding principles. How could that be radical or extremist?

    • Michael J.

      Ron Paul has already answered that question in succinct eloquence.

        Tom W., RP “conceeded”? You seem to enjoy that idea, if I read you correctly.

        Mr. Paul said he will continue to work to win delegates in states that have already voted and where the process of delegate-selection is playing out. He said that’s a way to make his voice heard at the Republican nominating convention in Tampa, Fla., in August.

        “Moving forward, however, we will no longer spend resources campaigning in primaries in states that have not yet voted,” Mr. Paul said. “Doing so with any hope of success would take many tens of millions of dollars we simply do not have.”

          I have a hard time trusting even the people who are closest to me let alone those farthest from me. Our politicians, Ron Paul included, are far from me but they exert a certain level of control in my life. My question about all of the presidential candidates is this: since the government is solely owned by the IMF then could there possibly be any of the politicians who work for them that will be honest and do the right thing? People are going to say I’m blind and that may be but nothing that anybody has said here has opened my eyes or made me feel comfortable with any politician I might choose to vote for. I’m not really worried because I know this all these troubles needs to come to pass and the only thing I know to do is to stay on my knees in prayer to YHWH through His Son Yehoshua. I keep myself busy tending to the blessings I’ve been given.

    Any sane person knows that you have to admit there are conditions you cannot control,before you can begin to deal with those conditions.
    But if you are merely an outside observer it makes intervention difficult.You would necessarily need to have someone with gubmental experience to ignite any kind of recovery program.There is a Doctor in the house,but if nobody thinks they need a physician,then a cure to what ails you cannot be established.So you have armchair dissidents advising you that,though you know there are conditions which need attention,that the doctor is somehow a quack.That the only physician in the house who sees the conditions for what they are,is in their minds(we have to take that part with a grain of salt)incapable of diagnosing the ailment for which his services are required.
    Even when he(the Doctor)has clearly stated before the world that the conditons are there and need to be addressed,the world still needs a second opinion.So you get the situation where many folks who do their armchair advisory from the muffled stance of having their heads where the sun doesnt shine,are constantly mumbling about the fact that nothing is getting done.
    Yet still others come around and misdirect those attempting to shed light on the diagnosis,by making their petty observational skills seem plenty smart,giving out little bits of improvised information in an effort to stymie real thought about the matter.
    But the real Physician is never contacted,though some who seek His advise by calling Him daily and asking Him to help,are still present and accounted for.Then another physician who may just be working for the senior one,gets himself in the position to make the diagnosis known through mediums which the world can understand,but is told that he is not the one to be able to work the ailment out by quacks who falsely represent themselves as physicians.
    So the world stays sick,and is in danger of contracting an infection because its physician’s procedures are lacking in quality control.All that is required is for someone to ask the Senior Physician to help with the conditions that the junior physician is attempting to address,but no such help is being asked for,by the quacks in charge of the administration of the hospital.They have rather decided to make known that the hospital has changed from a physical standpoint to a mental one,and that all the patients therein are now to be considered part of their Sanitarium.That way the can use the pharmaceutical method to cleanse the malady.
    But the tumor within the patients continues to grow and cause malaise.
    Do they listen to the quack psychologists which keep them under the spell of drug induced stupor,or call up the Senior Physician and ask Him to send the junior Physician to help?
    Good question,but I think the patients all know the answer as they clambor for their daily dose of Thorazine.

      • nc

        Map, you speak of the “failure of the left”. We are the number one nation in the world! Do you really want to see the “left’s” contibution to that position of NUMBER ONE??? Go to “bulls, bears donkeys and elephants” or at “The presidents and prosperity” and see how the “lefts” rank in this nations rise and remaining as NUMBER ONE in the world.

      • DaveH

        There goes NC again with his nonsense about the Bulls and the Bears. How many times must I refute your nonsense, NC?
        Rather than repeat myself, go here and follow this thread for some unbiased logic:

      But you are lying with your posting.

        My response was to Sarah, MAP.

      • eddie47d

        Well Nadzieja do you accept everything Bob said as an absolute fact or something that is a strong opinion of his? Everything he said has some truth to it but that doesn’t mean there aren’t other facts to consider. At this point I still believe that President Obama had Osama killed and all the rumors over the past few years were just that. I also agree with Bob that we can’t be chasing after false bogeymen or accepting propaganda just because anyone says so. Bob is telling us to be on guard even when it’s sounds too good to be true.

    • Bob Livingston

      Dear Sarah,

      You write: “A deliberate miss interpretation (sic) of the facts, is a lie, and yet your article above if full of them, what does it say about your propaganda?” Please point out lies. I’ll gladly correct the record.

      You write: “this is a common denominator with the Republicans, they have become the party of worshiping the 1%.” You remain a prisoner in the false left/right paradigm.

      Best wishes,


      Sarah, are you saying that the duplicitous Democrats tell the ABSOLUTE truth, and the 99% are blindly following the Democrats?

    • Brad

      sarah Obama is fed by thye 1% so you are talking about nothing of substance. He parties with the 1% nightly and they give him Millions to campaign his lies and then steels from you daily while you worhip him. You liberals are so confused, talk about brainwashed. You lady have Dain Bramage

    Stop taking your meds? I’ve been a follower for awhile but this is as loony as anything I’ve ever heard from the “certifiable”.

    • DaveH

      You’ve been a “follower” for a very long while, John. Bob is trying to get you to break free from those propaganda chains by which you’re bound. But instead of giving us logical rebuttals to Bob’s article, you offer us ad hominem attacks, as is usual for the Liberals on this board.
      If you Liberals would just take one of Bob’s assertions and rebut in a logical, or experiential, or referential manner, I would be knocked out of my chair.

      • Sarah

        MAP you think your so righteous, running around here with your higher then thou attitude, talk about Hipocrisy. LOL

      • John

        You misread me sir, I am able to offend many with my Conservative posts, but this rant right up there with “The Twin Towers was an inside job”. I’m not yet ready to believe that everything wrong is the result of an evil scheme. It simply covers a too broad spectrum and requires too many devious participants to succeed. I agree that some of the issues are likely correct.

      • Sarah

        Dave I have read your blogs here, and your attitude is condescending to say the least, like I said the article is inferior and gives no real insight, and in fact redirects the whole matter back to the Republicans, this is what they do, point fingers and blame someone else for what they, have themselfs done, if the Republicans wanted to correct the problems, they could have done it while G.W Bush was in office, and dont give me some line he couldnt, because that would be a LIE, something this website is good at, so while you and MAP and ajtmadenajad, make music together with your Hipocrisy, think about this The Real people out there are seeing your Repblicans for what you really are. BRAINWASHED.

      • eddie47d

        You are partially right Sarah and thank you for challenging any rigid ideology. You must remember that along with the Republicans the Democrats can be very rigid themselves. As most on this site know I will also take on the Libertarians who try and blow smoke up our posteriors too. Be eternally vigilant no matter who says it.

      • DaveH

        I couldn’t condescend you, Sarah, if you weren’t just plain ignorant.

      • DaveH

        And, John, anybody can say they’re Conservative, but if you were a True Conservative, at the very least you would politely question Bob’s assertions instead of resorting to ad hominem attacks on Bob.
        I call anybody who advocates Big Government a Liberal. So get used to it.
        True Conservatives know that Government has long ago trampled the Constitution.
        Whereas Government spent only 3% of our GDP in 1900, they now spend over 40% of our GDP. Do we really need 9 times more Government? Of course not. They are lying and cheating to grow their Power and Perks, and people like you are enabling their mischief.

        To prove her ignorance, Sarah says — “The Real people out there are seeing your Repblicans for what you really are. BRAINWASHED”.
        Who said anything about supporting Republicans, Sarah? The regular readers, who pay any attention at all, know that both parties are playing us for fools, and in your case they are succeeding, Sarah.

  • Louis Lemieux

    Bob, The truth is not always quite the same for everybody. My favorite color may be blue for me, but maybe not for you. People don’t all want the same things so they don’t all strive and work for the same things. Absolute 100% democracy does not exist, nevertheless the USA is still a democracy. If enough Americans believed in Ron Paul, don’t you think he would become president of the US? Propaganda is free speech and we have to rely on the intelligence of American voters. To try and understand those who do not think the same way we do is the only way to evolve mentally. If you still think the exact same way you did a year ago, you have made no progress. No one has the absolute truth, but we all have our way of knowing its whereabouts.

    • Nadzieja Batki

      What has color have to do with truth?

      • MAP

        Nadzieja, you fly through here, calling other people liars and ignortant. Yet you give no proof of this. You’re just another ignorant liberal, whose intelligence only rises to name calling, and mindlessly repeating what the Left/DNC/Marxist’s say. You are another fine example of the failure of the left.

      • Nadzieja Batki

        Go reread the postings again and then you can react accordingly.

      • MAP

        I owe you an apology Nadzieja. I mistook your postings as you placed them in the wrong place. Sorry!

    • DaveH

      Louis says — “Bob, The truth is not always quite the same for everybody”. My favorite color may be blue for me, but maybe not for you. People don’t all want the same things so they don’t all strive and work for the same things”.
      Exactly right, Louis. Which is why we want the Force of Big Government to be removed from peoples’ personal decisions. If your favorite color is Blue, then pay for those Blue objects with your own money. Let other people decide which color they want for themselves.
      Louis says — “Absolute 100% democracy does not exist, nevertheless the USA is still a democracy”.
      No, Louis, the USA was set up to be a Republic because our Founders had the wisdom and education to know that Democracies almost always resulted in tyranny over the minority by the majority. And they knew that the most representative Government was Local Government where the citizens could know their representatives and therefore make much wiser choices about who to give that power to. On the other hand the Leaders, who want total domination over the population of people, know that the best way to achieve that is to get Government as far away from the oversight of those people it claims to represent as possible.
      Louis says — “If enough Americans believed in Ron Paul, don’t you think he would become president of the US? Propaganda is free speech and we have to rely on the intelligence of American voters”.
      What intelligence? If the masses were intelligent, they would become curious as to why the Propaganda Media tries so hard to marginalize Ron Paul and suppress his message. Unintelligent people just take the word of others because it sounds good to their heavily Propagandized minds.
      For those who want to know what Ron Paul really stands for, start here:

      • Louis Lemieux

        If the US is a great country today and no doubt it it will remain so for a long time in the future, it’s especially because of Benjamin Franklin. He understood very well what the concept of democracy is and the importance of it for the freedom of Americans. The word democracy does not exist in the US Constitution but the definition of it is certainly there! The word democracy and republic are not antonyms!
        Not too long ago I was captivated by a book, The New York Times Bestseller, Benjamin Franklin by Walter Isaacson, author of Einstein and Steve Jobs. Benjamin F. understood very well the unfortunate consequences of those who think “they are the only ones who are always right“.

      • DaveH

        Maybe this would help, Louis:

      • Louis Lemieux

        As I stated above, DaveH, 100% democracy does not exist but the US is still a democracy!


          Wishful thinking America is no longer a Democracy. It was to day no more. When a supreme court will rule that it is legal for corporate America with its large resources to contribute to a political campaign that ruling has caused to end our freedom. Today it is no longer a Government by the people, for the people it is a Government that serve special interest group. Both political parties are mired with failure, both contributed to the large deficit that makes America the largest debtor Nation on earth.
          Joseph Foster, Author ‘’Seeing Red’’ ‘How America is losing the future’ Available at:

      • Louis Lemieux

        “The United States is the world’s oldest surviving federation. It is a constitutional republic and representative democracy, “in which majority rule is tempered by minority rights protected by law”.[55] The government is regulated by a system of checks and balances defined by the U.S. Constitution, which serves as the country’s supreme legal document.[56] In the American federalist system, citizens are usually subject to three levels of government, federal, state, and local; the local government’s duties are commonly split between county and municipal governments. In almost all cases, executive and legislative officials are elected by a plurality vote of citizens by district. There is no proportional representation at the federal level, and it is very rare at lower levels“–United States-Wikipedia.

    • David Robertson

      The Lie is that America is a Republic. It was created as a Constitutional Republic but it has morphed into a corporatist fascist socialist “democracy” especially over the past 100 years since the Federal Reserve System came into being. The central bank is a feature of the Communist Manifesto and without it socialism could not exist.

      There have been more wars and depressions since 1913 than at any other time in history because the ruling elites determined in a 1908 conference that the most effective means to bring about a radical change in American society was through the use of wars. In order to create dependency and to erode self reliance they had to introduce the welfare system.

      In order to accomplish these goals they had to take control of the monetary system to fund their war/welfare society. The dollar has lost up to 99% of its value measured against the only legitimate yardstick, gold, in the past one hundred years. This once again has served the elites since they receive the first tranche of credit issued and are able to buy up the resources of the nations. By means of debt they enslave the people and take their properties as collateral through their banking system which they have slowly consolidated into fewer and fewer hands.

      This scheme has now become a global phenomenon and the only countries without a central bank connected to the ruling elites’ network have been targeted for regime change. The first action of the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq and the revolution in Libya was the establishment of a central bank connected to the elites’ network. Syria and Iran are next in line.

      All of this is why Ron Paul has targeted the Federal Reserve System for closure and the consequent end of the wars and the welfare system since these are the means used to oppress the People. He aims to restore the original Constitutional Republic and return the governing power to the People who are the plenary locus of authority under the Declaration of Independence and Constitution for the united States of America. This Constitution is unique in all of history since its singular purpose is to restrict the power of government. This principle has been undermined continuously from the beginning but as long as the Constitution remains the supreme law of the land the possibility remains that it can be restored.

      At present the governing power in all Western societies is in the hands of the political class (executive, legislative, administrative and judicial) who are controlled by the extra-national ruling class through their banking and corporate cartels. The system that has been put in place is vulnerable at the moment since the rulers have set events in motion to transition to a world government. This means they are collapsing the societies they have engineered and have left themselves open to a coup d’etat at the very heart of their system in the United States which is the garrison state for their world empire wielding enormous military power.

      It is this coup d’etat that is now underway in the Republican primaries. Romney is an agent of the ruling class as is Obama. Ron Paul is the chosen agent of the People. A recent declaration from one of the delegates to the Oklahoma convention best sums up the change that is underway:

      “We are not just “Paul people” we are Constitutional Republicans. It is indeed our path to return our great nation back to constitutionality. Our constitution is being eroded by the status quo, both Dems and Reps and it must stop for the sake of liberty. We are not “Paul’s people”, we are a growing movement who has chosen Dr Paul because of his adherence to the Constitution and loyalty to Americans. We have been the primary funding source from the beginning (as opposed to Obama’s and Romney’s big Wall Street financiers, who are almost identical). We will remain long after Dr Paul has retired from politics. We will support other sincere Constitutional Republicans as well. You see, We are not his, he is ours. God bless the Constitution, God bless America.

  • MontanaGrandmom

    How many electors in the electoral college are really owned by those in control? In other words, how many real individual votes for Paul will it take to put him in office? I guess I am just more and more disillusioned by the whole ‘every vote counts’ rhetoric.

    I will vote & I will vote my conscience regardless of the real machinations of the electoral process. I just have my doubts about really being able to make a difference in the outcome.

    • DaveH

      I know that voter fraud really does exist, but it can’t swing vastly popular votes. The reality is that the majority of people have been successfully Propagandized by the MSM and the Public Schools to believe that Big Government is necessary to their well-being. Until we change that, the voter fraud that takes place is relatively meaningless.
      I think this book is one of the greatest eye-openers to the tremendous amount of Propaganda we’ve all endured in our lifetimes:

      The Propagandists managed to turn a conniving former railroad lawyer, who admired the men of old who were bent on destroying the Freedom that our Founders had established, who launched a war against those who simply did not want to be a part of the “Union” any longer, who usurped the Constitution and falsely imprisoned his critics, and who cost the lives of over 600,000 people in his vain pursuit of Power, into “Honest Abe”. Quite an accomplishment for the Propagandists, and quite an indictment against the cognitive abilities of the average citizen.
      Borrow it from the Library, or buy your own copy. I guarantee that one book will go a long way in removing the blinders from peoples’ Propagandized eyes.

      • independent thinker

        ” …the voter fraud that takes place is relatively meaningless.”

        While I agree with your basic premis the meaningfullness of voter fraud depends on when/where it occurs.

      • DaveH

        I said “relatively meaningless” because compared to voter ignorance it is a minor problem. But of course we should be vigilant in detecting it and prosecuting it.

    It isn’t all that unusual that so many have no idea as to who Walter Lippmann & Edward Bernays were. Propaganda – Masters of the same. Goebbels followed their lead in WWII. The same applies with what we are dealing with today. Refined, used in a much broader sense than most understand – MSM?! Read some on these two and you’ll for a better understanding in this area. It does apply, very much so.

    • Tom T

      Yes, Lippmann wrote “The Phantom Public” which is required reading in journalism school or at least it was when I was there.

        Glad you pointed it out that it was still in use although I’m quite sure that it still is. Again, so many have no earthly idea as to who those two were let alone what they promoted quite extensively.

    Do you Ron Paul supporters really buy the “Fact” of nobody really hates Americans” attitude? We just bring everyone home do away with the military and eveything will be rosey? Iran has never said they want to kill all jews and push Israel into the sea? Then the tv tapes of Ahmadinejads speeches are false? His Interviews with Diane Sawyer are false? You are sure because Paul says so, that they do not have a nuclear weapons program? The IAEA have been wrong before. The IAEA have also said they have been denied access to many areas. Take your head out of the Ron Paul sand hill. He has many good ideas about the economy. His ideas about protecting America from outside enemies is a non reality.

    • DaveH

      Nitemare asks — “Do you Ron Paul supporters really buy the “Fact” of nobody really hates Americans” attitude?”.
      Of course not, Nitemare. But WE are aware that many of those haters are being created by our meddling military establishment. How would you feel if Mexican soldiers were patrolling our streets, bullying those they pleased? Why do you think anybody else would like that sort of thing?
      And no, everything won’t be rosy if we bring our military home. The damage has been done and it will take years, maybe decades to repair it, but to continue the damage is certainly NO solution.
      And get it straight, Nitemare, Iran DIDN’T say anything about killing all Jews — Ahmadinejad said that (supposedly), but since I can’t read the Iranian language I have no idea what he really said. Don’t indict an entire population of people for what one wacked-out Leader may or may not have said.
      There are many precedents that have (or should have shown us) that Leaders can NOT be trusted. That includes US Leaders.

  • JB

    Well the simple truth is this: the “GOVERNMENT” is simply a corporation, which produces lies, money for themselves, and ANYTHING to keep the rest of us all in some kind of conflict with each other. If we stop believing that we are all seperate and start caring about each other as human beings, and just recognize them for what they are, they would have far less power over anything.

    For example: this UCC birth cetificate thing, if they truly do have a bond with our ficticious names (CORPORATE ENTITY CAPITAL LETTERS IN OUR NAME) on them which they trade on the stock market, this tells you EXACTLY what they are and have been all these years.!!!! No regard for humanity at all. The fact is, I contacted my local state government, thinking that it was all a big lie–BUT GUESS WHAT? They sent me a link that describes how I could get control over that ENTITY. You know what else, in order to do so, I would have to join the INA for $95.00 a month, and thereafter, pay $2,000.00 a month to be able to get the legal documents to gain control of this thing. FIRST OF ALL- this was something done TO ME WITHOUT MY KNOWLEDGE, therefore, I SHOULD NOT HAVE TO PAY ANYONE ONE CENT TO GET THE DETAILS OF IT!!. SECONDLY–IF EVERY ELECTED OFFICIAL KNOWS ABOUT THIS and has known about this since 1933, I have no respect for ANY OF THEM!! AND, if it is simply another FABRICATED CONFLICT, then, it is surely just another way to convince the public they can control us.

    There will come a time when the American people will get fed-up with this crap and do something about all of it. I don’t know when, or how, but the time will come. It really does not make a damn bit of difference who we vote for because until the whole system changes, the corporation will continue to screw all of us. I love America, I love our people, our beautiful earth but I am absolutely DISGUSTED with this so-called government that clearly has it’s own agenda, that has not one thing to do with the needs or beliefs of us as a people. There is very little if anything I can do about it all –BUT- knowing the truth gives me some amount of power over my life.

    Why do you think every time you sneeze, they give you a pill?? THINK ABOUT IT!! This whole system is set up to make us believe we have no power over our own bodies, we cannot help ourselves in any way. THIS IS SIMPLY NOT TRUE. It is just another way to keep us spending money, and to make us believe we need an outside source to “help us”. There are people teaching new methods now of using the power of our brain to fight off disease or illness. There are people teaching new ways to overcome depression and stress, simply by changing thought patterns and old belief systems. There is a voice on a recording (I don’t know who the man is, but I believe he is in government) who says the money is not in the dead, the money is to be made from the half-dead, who need this drug or that pill, and the more they take, the more they will need, and the more money we can make off them!! NOW, does that sound like anyone who wants to help humanity?

    I have decided to take control of my life. I intend to be a happier, healthier, person, live my life and stop worrying about what the “ELITE” say or do , or try to sell me. I don’t believe much that I read on the internet, (controlled), I don’t believe much I hear on tv (evn more controlled), but I TRUST MY OWN THOUGHTS AND CONCLUSIONS. I know what resonates in my soul as truth and what instinctly makes me go “yeah, right, I can feel that lie”. There are better people to listen to than the government, There is Dr. Wayne Dyer, Dr. Bruce Lipton, Jennifer Mclean, and others who teach people how to take control and use their own brain to turn to God for truth. We can take control over OURSELVES and in doing so , we can change the world.

    Don’t give them any power over your soul!! We can fight back by caring about each other, being compassionate for each other, and connecting to the ONE POWER which is greater than all others, GOD!! Even if you don’t believe in God, BELIEVE IN YOURSELF!! Those of us who do believe in God, do you really believe God put us here to fight over oil or gold, or any other natural resource?? I don’t. Do you really believe that God wanted us to all be sick and unhappy all of our lives?? I don’t. And, do you really believe that one race, one nationality, one belief, or any other seperation was God’s doing?? I don’t. I believe God put us here to love each other, learn from each other and unite in our humanity. Do you really believe that if there is a heaven, God is gonna seperate us into groups of color, religion, or anything else once we get there?? I don’t.!!! We are here to build our humanity, not tear it down with wars (which were manufactured by the corporation) or live our lives in fear that there is “NOT ENOUGH” of this or that, if we all came together as human beings, we would find there is plenty of everything to be shared by all.

    WAKE UP PEOPLE!! STOP GIVING THEM EMOTIONAL AMMUNITION TO FEED THEIR GREED!! We used to be a nation of people who grew our own food, made our own products, and took care of a lot of our sicknesses with our own cures, what happened??? I tell ya what happened, somewhere along the way, they convinced us we cannot do for ourself anymore and “SERVICES” became available to us. The FDA, and other brances of the corporation decided to regulate all that, WHY? They did it so we would no longer KNOW where our food came from or exactly what is in the pill we take!! There will be a time when we need to take all that back and take control of our lives again, and for humanity’s sake, I hope it happens soon.

    LOOK, all I am saying is the solution lies WITHIN US AS INDIVIDUALS. We are the only ones who can take responsibility for our own actions and undo all this MESS!! Once we begin to reach out to each other with compassion and love, evil will no longer be able to control us. Don’t take a pill to supress anger, sadness, or frustration, use that emotion to guide you into a solution. Don’t you think with a clear mind, and devotion to God and intention in our hearts, we can all make a difference?? I do.

      None of those machinations is required…… free yourself.

      Familiarity with UCC 1-207, UCC 1-103, 26 CFR 31.3402 (p) and the understanding of
      the ( common ) law and equity jurisdictions in Article 3 are all that is required.

      There is one final catch, however…… have to ACT of the information and you have to
      act ALONE!

      Since this represents the ultimate act of courage ( which is not compelled, yet is fraught with risk ( mostly exaggerated and self induced ) most will attempt to deny or ignore this simple and direct solution.

      Ron Paul in 2012, and End the Fed is much easier, and contains zero risk…..while as a career politician, who has wasted a career, under oath…..has strangely neglected to mention this direct method of restoring the “constitution” which he claims is his “goal”.

      I guess empowering “the people” directly must not a be a “solution” for him?

      • JB

        Thank you GALT for the link. I have decided until I know exactly what to do, I will make no attempt to mess with this thing. I only learned about it a couple of weeks ago and it scared me so badly that I cried for 2 hours. I sent the inquiry to my state thinking they would tell me they had no idea what I was talking about and I will admit it scared the heck out of me when they sent me that link. I was sure they were going to come directly to my door and cart me off to a FEMA camp simply for asking about it, but, all I want is the TRUTH.

        The point I was trying to make, is, there shouldn’t have been such a thing done in the first place and there should be a way for people to completely understand the situation and be able to act on that information. The fact that it was done and most Americans did not even know about it and some still don’t should speak volumes about this thing called government. Also, the fact that they would charge someone to find out what it is about and how to deal with it is just WRONG!!

        I will study the information you sent me, but until I understand clearly what all is involved with this, I will not attempt to do anything. It is something completely foreign to me that un-nerved me, but I refuse to be afaid of something that I did not willingly agree to and have not known about until now.

        Thank you again for the information.

      • GALT

        I have posted various strategies on how to use the different pieces…….since one is not required to take a blanket position…….and the goal is to “protect yourself” as the need arises……….without subjecting yourself to things that are inconvenient or expose you to persecution by those ignorant of the truth here…….( law enforcement, IRS, employers etc.) I have paid for various sources of information over the years and also developed my own adaptive approaches………I prefer a non confrontational inquisitive stance……when possible.

        You should probably AVOID any esoteric schemes which are organised and require any kind of money to join………none of this is that complicated…..and once you understand the basic components…….you are then only limited by your own creativity and circumstances.

    “LIE: America is a Democracy” The term. “the Republic” was used by presidents prior to FDR. Even Lincoln, Teddy and Tommy used that term. Democracy is largely a sham. The tyranny of the Majority is still tyranny and more insidious because it appears to be for the common good. The users of the term include Stalin, Hitler, Musollini, FDR, LBJ, Fidel, Mobuto, Mugabe, Ortega, Chavez, Mao, Chou, Ho among a long list of tyrants. Pericles was a tyrant, so elected by citizens of Athens. Gaius Julius Caesar was elected to the Senate at a young age because of a change in eligibility seen as an “opening of the process” and declined the Emperorship after being elected dictator for life–it turned out to be a shorter term than expected. Cromwell turned out to be a military dictator, more arbitrary than any king in recent memory. Socrates was sentenced to banishment by majority vote of the “dikasts” a group more akin to a lynch mob than a jury–the myth of Athenian democracy was shown to be as accurate (and less charming) than the myth of Dionysios. It was taken apart by Plato, Aristotle and Thucydides.

    We have a Constitution that supposedly protects us from the whims of the electorate and the elected. (What we have overlooked is the elect, but I’m not going to get into the Principles of Calvin.) And the Constitution has been betrayed by our elected officials and representatives and their appointed deputies.

    • Richard

      Yikes ! I might spend hours googling/wikiing your allusions……I think I agree with your esoteric points, but if you might conclude with a summarizing paragraph, ‘twould be excellent…….If you’re pointing out that Democracy is mob rule, whilst a republic is intended to be the ‘Rule of Law’ I must agree.

  • Terri

    Bob, You have given me food for thought. I do have to make a couple of observations. First is on High Fructose Corn Syrup… The story we often hear is that they use it to keep the costs down. Okay, sounds good after all we want to keep food affordable right? Because of my belief that there are chronic health problems caused by the modern diet and the fact I am unemployed I not only read labels but compare prices. Guess what…. the food industry lies! Test for yourself… take as an example the salad dressings, there are many brands and flavors out there. Comparing side by side you notice that generic and store brands are much cheaper often as much as 50%. Now compare the ingredients of each type with each other. Funny thing is most of the national brands will have HFCS and the cheap stuff will have sugar.
    Secondly, though I don’t eat a lot of meat, if everyone were to go vegan there would have to be a whole lot more of the land put under the plow. Unless of course we went completely to “Franken foods” Funny as well if these GMO foods are so safe why wouldn’t the agri businesses want them labeled? After all, one of the tools of marketing is to repackage something and call it “new and improved”.

    • DaveH

      Read this book to get the answer to your high-fructose quandary and many others:

      • Terri

        Thank you Dave I will check out that book.
        I truly believe that chronic health problems are caused by our toxic diet. There is more evidence coming out on an almost weekly basis that backs this up.
        I have reduced my need for insulin by two thirds simply by eliminating HFCS from my food choices as much as possible. Nor do I eat margarine or other fake fats. BTW my cholesterol is in the good range (much to the surprise of my doctor – who remains a bit skeptical in spite of the evidence)

      • DaveH

        My gal and I are health food nuts. Both of us suffer from chronic illnesses that we keep at bay with a healthy diet. I differ from her, though, in that I suspect my problems started with a compromising of my immune system due to vaccinations I received as a child. No way to know the truth on that though.
        We both try to stay away from processed foods as much as possible.

  • Molly Maguires

    The GOP has no rival when it comes to propaganda and what I call the “syntax of deception.” How else could they possibly hoodwink the commoners of the middle class to vote against their own interests, when a vote for the GOP has become a vote for more power and influence for the top 1% to the detriment of the 99%. Tax breaks for the wealthy, corporate welfare (loopholes, tax write-offs, and subsidies to the tune of $Hundreds of Billions in tax-payer handouts per year to some of the wealthiest “multinationals” the world has ever seen, while they park their vast profits, a majority of which was extracted from their largest market, the USA, in off-shore accounts, etc.), and financial backing from the Kochs, Murdoch, etc. (Citizens United, ALEC, Corporations are People, Money is Speech) who fully expect them to return the favor, keeping them beholden to their overlords and first love; Corporate CEOs, Outsourcers of 9 million of USA middle class jobs for a higher return, Wall Street and the financial sector fat cats, and other elites, while they toss a bone to the middle class in the form of social issues, which they use as a front to decieve the gullible.

    Bob Livingston,
    This the most imformative article you have wrtten yet.You hit the nail on the head.I glad somebody’s got the courage and wisdom to state facts from fiction,this is indeed the best article you have written yet.I am lost for words.I like to see all oily two face politicians from both the right and left voted out of office,once and for all.End the war now.You are right.We have been lied to,starting with Reagan,Bush and now Obama.

  • http://peresonallibertydigest.. gottaplenty

    Starting with Reagan??

    • DaveH

      Actually it started with Lincoln, and then became much more earnest with Teddy Roosevelt and the later Progressives.

  • Dean Brandt

    You mean to tell me that Bin Laden has been dead for years? Is there any proof of that.

    • DaveH

      Is there any proof of his recent death?

      • LibertyHawk

        DaveH: the proof of Bin Laden’s death is in the logic; it is common knowledge, well documented proof that Bin Laden was in US Military hospital just before 9-11. As the bin Laden family had close ties to the Bush family, they all had special privileges and therefor, special access to US Military hospitals. Bin Laden had failing kidney’s and in desperate need of kidney dialyzes!! Rationalize this: kidney dialyzes machines are huge machines – how long do you think he could have survived running around in caves without access to machines keeping his kidneys clean and alive?
        Bottom line; Bin Laden was a figure created by our CIA to be the boogie-man we needed to create a war for Israel. He was created and “kept alive” until it was politically correct and expedient to have him killed. It’s all a laughable joke – a joke on the American sheeple. Time to wake up the masses, time for a true R3VOLUTION!

        • Terri

          As a point of fact Liberty Hawk you do NOT need a huge machine to do dialysis. For over ten years perotineal (PD) (sorry I’m sure I didn’t spell it right) has been available.

          If Bin Laden used PD he would have used either a portable machine less than 30 pounds on a nightly basis. He could be tracked via the solution he would need for his exchanges and would require electricity. BUT there is the manual approach, where he would have to dialysize several times a day using gravity. Cumbersome but no need of electricity all PD patients are taught how to do the manual method in the event of a power outage.

          The advantage of PD are many for someone like Bin Laden is no need for a dialysis center and huge machine and the diet would be less restrictive. The drawback to it is the patient needs to self monitor their health.

          And yes I have personal knowledge of PD versus the more common hemodialysis since my late husband had hemo and then went to PD.

      • Karolyn

        LibertyHawk – You used the term ” it is common knowledge.” Is it? It seems as though whenever I use that term, even having to do with what most people regard as fact, I am shot down for it because I do not substantiate it with citation. Where’s yours? The problem is that there is not much of anything that can be truly substantiated unless the proof is in verified photos or writing, etyc. Pretty much anybody can say anything they want. Then, if it is to the reader’s liking, they maintain it as truth.

        • LibertyHawk

          OK Karolyn, you asked for it, so I’m pleased to provide it:
          BY the way, anything else you hear or see that says anything to the contrary, I trust you’ll use the same standard you’re using with me. Be assured, both snopes and wikepedia are owned and operated by the same ‘powers that be’ that control the mass media, pure and simple. What a better CIA/NWO tool than to come up with a that can further keep the sheeple in the dark!

      • DaveH

        Exactly, Karolyn, so why do you place your faith in a bunch of elected officials to make your personal choices? What makes you think for one moment that they aren’t as evil as any other person on this earth, but with the Power of Force?

  • DavidL

    Bob, I’d like to know more about you. Could you share some of your biography? Specifically I would like to know the following:

    When and where were your born? When and where did you graduate from college? What was your major(s)? Do you have any advanced degrees? In what? Are you married? Do you have children? What is their educational level and what do they do for a living? Why are you an ultra-conservative? Did you serve in the military?

    Thanks, Bob.


    • DaveH


      • DavidL


      • DaveH

        I don’t need any context in your case, David, to know that you’re a flaming Liberal Zealot.

      • DavidL

        First, you are quite wrong about my characterization. You have no idea who I am and where I come from. To know that, and to make any kind of judgement about me or anyone, you would need context. Second, context is everything. Without it there is no understanding. Third, if you don’t understand and appreciate the importance of context, then you don’t see the inherent ignorance of labeling me the way you did. Third, I was speaking with Bob Livingston, a gentlemen whom I respect, and not you. So unless you have something respectful and substantive to offer, I suggest you mind your own business.

        With the greatest respect, I await Bob’s response.

      • DaveH

        I have read enough of your comments to know that you’re very Liberal. Here’s just one:
        Specifically — “Just like it wasn’t the fault of W. Bush when gas prices spiked to over $4.00, it isn’t this President’s fault either. Speculators anyone?”
        I have never known anybody but a Liberal to blame oil prices on Speculators. And both Bush and Obama are Liberals, only Obama makes Bush pale in comparison.

      • DaveH

        And none of those personal questions you asked Bob have anything at all to do with the content of his articles.
        Why don’t you lay out your life story for the Readers and see how you fare?

      • DaveH

        Here’s another. DavidL says — “When our citizens can light their tap water on fire, it’s time for government to step in to protect life”.
        Again, I’ve only known Liberals to embrace such crap without question and then seek Bigger Government as the solution which the rest of us have to pay for.

    Bob! Bob! Are you for real?!? You compose an article to warn against Propaganda that includes one of the longest lists of Libertarian propaganda I’ve seen lately, presented after the Saul Alinsky fashion of total rhetoric and absolutely zero substantiation!
    I know that we disagree, but I’ve come to expect much better from this site. This is reminiscent of the normal articles found on MSNBC, Huffington Post and other Progressive web sites!

    • DaveH

      And I’ve come to expect unsubstantiated nonsense from you, Ted.
      How about some specifics? If Bob said something you disagree with, tell us what it is and how you know it isn’t true, instead of behaving like a Liberal and issuing ad hominem attacks.

      • Ted Crawford

        At what point did I maks an unsubstantiated claim? The use of bombastic, pretentious language in a statement, absent substantiation, is a textbook defination of Rhetoric. If you have read Alinsky you are aware that this is the method of indocturnation loudly recommended by him. I simply stated that I’m not use to this from this site and that I’ve come to expect far better!

      • DaveH

        Are you kidding me, Ted?
        Did you not just say — “You compose an article to warn against Propaganda that includes one of the longest lists of Libertarian propaganda I’ve seen lately”?
        I am not impressed by your logical abilities.

      • Ted Crawford

        I’m not surprized with that all. Partisans, Democratic, Republican, or Libertarian are only impressed with the rhetoric displayed by their party! Open mindedness is, necessarily the first casualty of partisanship!

      • DaveH

      Ted , Ted…don’t mistake the trees for the forest……and don’t be deceived that Ron Paul is a pacifist when it comes to self defense….he just won’t allow our imposition of the American Empire way interfering in the free choice of others

      • Ted Crawford

        I don’t recall ever labeling Dr. Paul a Pacifist. What I do believe is that he is a far right Idealist, and I share Mencken belief, ” An Idealist is one who, on noticing that a Rose smells better than a cabbage, concludes that it will also make better soup ”
        Dr. Pauls call to bring all our military home and close all our overseas bases, to never involve ourselfs in the affairs of any other nation, without a declaration of war by congress, is nothing more than the modern version of the Seige Defence Stratagy. That only worked occasionally even during the Middle Ages and has never worked in modern times.Remember how well it worked for France during WWII?

      • DaveH

        I know you have an intense blood-lust, Ted, and a need to Force your way on others, but the Constitutional Requirement for a Congressional Vote on War was written for the express purpose of protecting people, foreign or domestic, from people like yourself.
        Ron Paul is simply trying to do what all Politicians pledge to do, but fail to do, that is to obey the Constitution.

    those planes didn’t bring down the wtc any more than a flaming car crash brings down a concrete bridge support. in fact gasoline burns hotter than jet fuel (lowly kerosene). on 9/11 i got up and saw desiree and others looking at lynn’s portable tv. i went over only to eyeball desiree, just in time to see one of the twin towers seem to collapse under its own weight. it fell straight down, one brick on top of the other. demolition experts, watch that video and take notes. the comments i’ve heard is that the buildings were wired, and i could believe that based on their vertical collapse, where neighboring buildings were not damaged, but it would be tough to do this. these buildings would have comings and goings 24/7, because of the time zones around thw world, but even if they closed up at night i think the janitors would get suspicious if they saw someone pushing a cart stacked with boxes labeled du pont tnt. but there wouldn’t have been time to undertake a project of this magnitude under gwb’s watch, it would have to have been started with clinton, unless they closed the building’s for a week for “repairs.” and then how did they happen to catch timothy mcveigh so fast? he was speeding. oh yeah, ever try to stick to the speed limit on an interstate? they never did apprehend the sterling hall bombers, but they caught timothy mcveigh before the dust settled. another point, i don’t think anyone named tim could do something like that. i mean, what if his name was tim hitler or tim tse tung. that ok city bombing was suspicious to me because the charge wasn’t shaped to aim toward the building, it just blew out in all directions, limiting its actual effect. i had a class assigned in sterling hall after the bombing which the prof then went and changed, because the room was a shambles, but there was a room. the building was intact. so how did okc just collapse with the same delivery?

    What??? The western world is NOT under threat from islamofascism? Please explain this in detail. The last time I looked, islamists all over Europe were standing on street corners shouting “Freedom go to hell” while ingratiating themselves with governments all over Europe. Obama has appointed five members of the Muslims Brotherhood in high-ranking jobs. They – yes, islamists, are shouting their intentions, to take over the world and make it succumb to sharia law, from every pulpit in the Middle East. I think you ought to take them at their word. The Fort Hood massacre is an example of what they will do, and how they are aided and abetted on every front by the politically correct weaklings in the US government.

      Sadly, many believe just that. I’ve caught business people (particularly from the NE) who, when caught in a lie, simply smile and say, “But it’s just business!”

      Here in the South, a liar is hated worse than a murderer. At least with a murderer you can assume he had a reason to kill someone. The worst thing you can do here is call someone a liar – and you’d better be ready for a fight when you do.

      I have to agree with you, Bert. Who really knows what the truth is? You can read one thing that appears true and then read something totally the opposite that has merit also. Agendas of those doing the reporting also come into play. It is not easy given all the variables.

    Its all a mess, just like in Canada. All spin, all the time.

    Its not just the left folks…the entire system is a mess.

    So I’m just curious. Would anyone in opposition, any union leader, any bureaucrat please tell the public what can be cut in government, please tell us.

    “We don’t want the party to end,the “free” trips, expense accounts…perks, gold plated pensions, free this, free that…Yes indeed,we in government are all entitled to our entitlements folks and we can’t stop that,at least not until we retire.Our unions say so,it’s ours and we want it now! $”

    Scum bag parasitic unions,police,crown corporations,all government…all the same, bankrupting future generations…and they don’t give a damn.All you hear from government is high priced expensive spin, lies…BS.

    We now have over 3.6 million people working for government across the country. Average salary in government is 70 thousand (including benefits, pension, bonuses…) yearly and rising. Average salary in the private sector is 45 thousand yearly and dropping. Over 10% of government employees now make over 100 thousand yearly.In the private sector the number is under 2%. Look to Greece,Ireland,Quebec (all technically bankrupt), this is where Ontario, and Canada is headed if we don’t stop equalization and get spending and government growth under control. This tax and spend, pro union scum – socialist, big government, social engineering that has been destroying this country has got to stop. Yes, it has left Quebec and has been spreading throughout the rest of the country since the 1960”s, that’s right over 5 decades of massive government growth, massive government hiring, higher taxes, skyrocketing government salaries, more debt, social engineering ( the expensive forced phony charter, bilingualism, multiculturalism…while destroying, and revising our real BNA, UEL history).Thanks Trudeau, Tanks kebec.Go check the stats for yourself.

    Remember-The liberals, NDP brought in a lot of this expensive nonsense, bilingualism (forced french, only outside Quebec), multiculturalism, the charter, rights this, rights that…but the Conservatives have done nothing to repeal any of this crap federally or provincially.

    “Conservatives” have allowed all of these expensive, divisive liberal polices, and departments to remain.How come?

    Try to digest this you over paid scum bag politicians, unions, government bureaucrats, executives, CEOS….Who do you think is going to pay off all this debt you are leaving your children, your grandchildren? That’s what I thought, you don’t care! You greedy scum bags.They are all becoming wealthy off of the private sectors dime folks.

    We need a new party,a new leader willing to deal with the truth for a change.We need a real fiscally conservative, common sense leader/party…Things need to be cut,reduced and eliminated in all government.Government is too big,intrusive,and they are accumulating too much debt, year after year. That’s right lets get cutting non essential services, waste…government BS.The future is at stake here and no one is willing to deal with this, how pathetic, all of you clowns in office and most of the mainstream media..

    This simple truth is Ron Paul cannot win. Ron Paul supporters NEED to know when to hold ‘em and when to fold ‘em. It is absolutely true that if Paul supporters continue to stubbornly cling to the hope that Paul can beat obama, they will be indeed dividing the conservative vote and giving obama four more years of hell from which we will never recover. You can’t always get what you want. There is never a perfect candidate but we can turn this sinking ship around if we all stick together for the common cause of getting rid of obama. To continue to be disruptive, obnoxious, rude and delusional is going to seal our fate and destroy any chance of taking back America one election at a time. ANYBODY BUT OBAMA.

    • 45caliber


      You are right; Ron Paul cannot win. If he was the ONLY rival Oblama had, he might win, but he won’t be the only one. But with the help of his supporters, he CAN force the GOP to agree to some of his platforms at the convention if none back down now. And that is what they are trying to do.

      • Sunny

        If that is where Ron Paul supporters drew the line, I would be fine with that strategy but Libertarians like John Stossel say they will cast a vote for Paul no matter what. That is not using common sense, that is not looking at the big picture, that is not a strategy for defeating obama. That is blinding holding to an ideal that will ensure obama gets to completely bring down America.

      What Conservative Vote? You must mean NeoConservative because a True Conservative would never dream of voting for Romney or Santorum. And likely the division caused by Paul’s candidacy would be equally shared by both disaffected Democrats and disaffected Republicans.

  • Sirian

    I agree with your article, considerably, but I’ve had a couple questions pop up in relation to two areas ~ “The West is in Peril from Islamofascism” and “President Barrack Obama killed Osama bin Laden”.
    First, I understand the points you made, very probable! But from what I’ve learned from the book “Shariah – The Threat to America” (various other sources also) is that too nothing more than a “shadowy intelligence” compilation of false information? For instance, is it not true that the Muslim Brotherhood has recently made a visit to the WH with who knows what intents not spoken of? Is it not agreeable that there has been a much larger infiltration of our government by Islamic radicals than most realize.
    Second, From the source you applied to killing OBL there seems to be a contradiction present. From the source – PCR’s article – he wrote “Apparently, no one stops to wonder how al-Qaeda, which has become so disorganized and helpless that it is on the run and left its revered leader, Osama bin Laden, in a Pakistan village alone and unguarded to be murdered by US Navy Seals.” Murdered by U.S. Navy Seals? Does this statement not contradict your statement – “Bin Laden was long dead and his flesh rotted away when Obama sent Seal Team 6 into Pakistan.” Lew Rockwell says/proposes one, PCR states the opposite coupled with what you said. So, would this not make one wonder as to which is the actual truth? Do you see where my questions come from??
    I fully agree with you in reference to “propaganda” – “I have learned the power of propaganda.” – Lippmann & Bernays at their best! Am I discounting what you’ve said – far from, please. But the minor contradictions I’ve pointed out caught my eye and I’m merely questioning which, without question, in your opinion, is which?

    • Bob Livingston

      Dear Sirian,

      You write: “But from what I’ve learned from the book “Shariah – The Threat to America” (various other sources also) is that too nothing more than a “shadowy intelligence” compilation of false information? For instance, is it not true that the Muslim Brotherhood has recently made a visit to the WH with who knows what intents not spoken of? Is it not agreeable that there has been a much larger infiltration of our government by Islamic radicals than most realize.” I am not familiar with that book and therefore cannot comment upon its contents. RE: the Muslim Brotherhood—who are they? Do you know beyond what the MSM has told you? I do not. I do know that U.S., British and Israel intelligence agencies have conspired to create al-Qaida and MEK and would not doubt they are behind the creation of the Muslim Brotherhood.

      You write : “From the source you applied to killing OBL there seems to be a contradiction present. From the source – PCR’s article – he wrote “Apparently, no one stops to wonder how al-Qaeda, which has become so disorganized and helpless that it is on the run and left its revered leader, Osama bin Laden, in a Pakistan village alone and unguarded to be murdered by US Navy Seals.” Murdered by U.S. Navy Seals?” You take this quote from PCR out of context. If you will read more of his articles I believe you will see that he does not believe Seal Team 6 killed bin Laden. Here is his from this morning:

    When I was in the Army, they told us to watch out for and disbelieve rumors. Somewhat facisiously, one of the instructors told us that if you really wanted to start a rumor that people would believe, load it with easily recognized facts with only one false statement. People will recognize the facts and then assume the lie is also true since the rest of the facts were true. I tried it a few times while in the service and he was right. But it also taught me to watch what someone does say. I see this frequently in government statements. Watch for it.

  • Nancy Forsyth

    I am an 89 year old college graduate who served in the Navy WAVES during World War II. I was in high school during the Great Depression of the 1930s. At that time there were no “Programs” to help people. Everyone stood on his/her own two feet. Help was available through the churches or neighbors. Even though times were tough, we all managed to make it. It was Roosevelt who started the “help” programs leading up to the complete take over today by the government. Ihave watched through the years as the government has taken over more and more of our responsibilities. Today we almost have to ask the government’s permissionto go to the bathroom. People today don’t understand the wonderful freedoms we had to make our own decisions and to not have the heavy burden of paying heavy taxes. A few years ago I saw the handwriting on the wall and realized that our government was so deeply in debt that our government was going to crash. I began stockpiling food and medicines and telling my children to do thesame. Since the 1940s, our citizens have forgotten our Constitution and have voted for candidates who are so dumb they haven’t even read the Constitution. No one today asks a candidate if he/she has read the Constitution. My cousin George Washington and my uncle Patrick Henry must be turning in their graves.

    Wow, Bob. Again, I don’t agree with all of the conspiracy stuff in here, but I’m surprised how much I do agree with:
    “Lie: Iran is a direct threat to the United States and Israel:”
    We WILL be forced into another expensive war–over Iran, sure, why not? Since Ike gave his military-industrial complex speech, war is the main thing America is good for. We manufacture more arms than the next 6 powers below us in the world, and weapons sales are only good if you’re using ‘em up.

    War gets everybody goose-stepping in the same direction supporting the government. If you tried to get Americans working together for a little bit to make the country stronger and better, you’d be greeted by a wall of criticism from people saying you’re guilty of socialism. But if you wrap your hiney in the flag and go blow somebody up, people are forced to get behind the government or be accused of being traitors. George Orwell explained this at length in the book “1984″.

    It’s a principle of governance as old as time and Hitler used it to good effect in Poland in 1939: Once you start killing your citizens’ kids in war, they have to follow you to the gates of hell–no parent can admit that their child was killed in a fiasco. So, you have them doubled back over on their own grief, and they have to support the war effort.

    Suggested reading: “Fiasco”, “Inside The Emerald City”.

    “Lie: American obesity means people eat too much and exercise too little.”
    Bob’s comments here are spot on. If you haven’t seen the documentary “King Corn”, you owe it to yourself to do so.

    It’s the best overview of the high fructose corn syrup diet discussion out there. And, sadly, it wasn’t done necessarily by people with evil intent–just misguided use of technology…that has since blown up into a multi-billion dollar business, and since corporations are concerned only with profits, it really isn’t any of their business if their products are killing people en masse. The assumption is that the government would protect us from them. In this case, since the government is in bed with Big Corporate, they’re not going to protect us.

    Similarly, the move toward monopoly of the food chain by Big Corporate through GMO crops profoundly threatens our entire way of life by destroying the biodiversity that’s made this planet work for centuries and replacing it with a food chain ENTIRELY in the hands of Big Corporations, who pledge allegiance every day, not to America, but to their multi-national shareholders.

    I dunno if Obama’s setting up secret FEMA death camps to incarcerate white people using a government agency that couldn’t even set up FEMA camps in broad daylight to help Katrina victims, but we should DEFINITELY be worried about our entire food chain being wrapped up in the fist of people whose only motivation is greed.

    Here’s the thing. Socialism is a dead idea. It DOESN’T WORK. Well, except when the Red Cross rolls out for tornado relief. If you show up making a profit by selling water for $5 a bottle, you may be a good capitalist, but generally society agrees that you’re a greedy bastard making money off of people’s bad fortune.

    But as a governing principle, it’s been a failure. The history of the 20th century documents the failure of socialism.

    I wonder, though, if the history of the 21st century isn’t going to document the failure of capitalism? Not pure capitalism, but the greedy, weird, hybrid, stacked-deck version we’re all enslaved to now.

    We are privatizing public services that used to be regarded as too important to trust to the profit motive, and are reaping some peculiar consequences.

    Privatized prisons immediately come to mind.

    By handing over the duty of the state to Prisons, Inc., these companies have plowed their considerable profits right back into lobbying for phony “get tough on crime” legislation and legislators, and we’ve passed a unique milestone in the history of the world: America the free now incarcerates more of it’s citizens per capita than any other nation on earth. More than China. More than Stalin did at the height of the gulag prison system. And because it’s for profit, every American citizen is a potential “customer” for the system. The corporate prisons have no mandate to protect America, and they’re not answerable to it’s citizens–again, they only answer to their multi-national shareholders.

    To me that’s scarier than any supposed FEMA camp conspiracy. And it ought to concern you too.

    Similarly, the creation of privatized corporate armies–such as Blackwater, permitted during the Cheney Administration to engage in military operations without consulting the theater command chain of the United States Army (resulting in more than one “friendly fire” incident) sets a dangerous precedent. The Army of the United States of America swears allegiance to the American people. Blackwater swears allegiance to their multi-national shareholders. This has been tried back during the days of Pinkerton and Felts armies opening fire on American citizens, but never on a scale and with technology such as this.

    I will say that I don’t think the answer is–as Rick Santorum suggested–that it’s okay for Americans to be uneducated dumbskys anymore. If Dwight Eisenhower were here today he’d box Santorum’s ears for being a greedy opportunist who will say ANYTHING to get good ol’ boys to vote for him. OF COURSE everyone needs to get the best education possible. It’s what built this country.

    The days of being stupid and still being ahead of the rest of the world in education are gone. We don’t have that luxury. Rather than attack all education as “elitism” (Boy, that’s handy if you want to manipulate people), we should all be working harder than ever to get the best education we can.

    Knowledge is power.

    If you think the lefties are undermining America, than it ought to be your duty to educate yourself to prove them wrong, rather than crackin’ a beer and leaning into your gameboy and making fun of education.

    I’d argue that the radical extreme of EITHER side is not good for us, and as historian Shelby Foote once said: “The genius of America has always been in it’s ability to find compromise”. Education makes it possible to come to some consensus that everyone can live with. And while we’re at it, improving our understanding of science, math, history, and having a solid set of skills might not be a bad thing either.

    I understand the arguement that “Big Government” is a failure, many times.

    I just don’t think it follows that Big Corporate is our savior. I think there’s just as much documentation of the failures of THAT kind of wreckless capitalism.

    And I can be as shrill as anybody, but I’m suspicious of the radical extremes on either side.

    We have to find a middle way.

    Another fine example of why this site is becoming more of a waste of time to read.

Such a waste of time and energy on display here on what seems like a daily basis.

      Even if you are correct and Dr Paul cannot win, lets face it the forces of evil on all sides are against him, he makes the statement we Americans do not want the socialist Communist change these forces of evil would perpetrate on the American People. Dr Paul is the voice of a great awakening in America — freedom, liberty and the constitution that does guarantee it.

  • Wildey

    Propaganda: The speading of ideas, truthful or not, or information deliberately to further one’s cause or damage an opposing cause. Stalin said, tell a lie 6 times and it becomes the truth. He also said, kill one man and it’s murder. Kill a 100,000 and they’re statistics.

    The Propaganda running rampant in America has us searching for truth not knowing what truth is. Reason is all but gone for our dictionary. If I say or do this or that the logical conclusion is shoved aside for a statement from some celebrity, politicial or otherwise. Clinton had the country questioning the definition of the word “is”. An educated person that lacks a heart felt moral understanding is a HItler, Stalin, Bush1 or Bush2, Clinton, Obama or a person of their ilk, of which there are many.

    As a believer in Christ and His teachings, personally I accept the bible as the source of truth. When a person says something that I feel is contrary to those truths I take President Reagans approach…”Trust, then verify”. Unfortunately the opposite of a man is innocent until proven guilty applies to our leaders. I have to look at them as guilty until proven guilty. They have to live up to what I know is truth and truth is NOT what comes out of DC, the District of Criminals. Of course there are men in DC like Ron Paul who only know how to speak truth but they are few and far between.

    They speak in “facts” statements I’m suppose to believe, not give me the credit of having some intelligence and asking questions. The world these Satan’s servants have created has us on the brink of extinction. The important news when you can find it is usually tucked in some obscure location. It’s like pieces of a puzzle and the bible paints the completed picture. Everyone of us is equal in the eyes of God. We all have the ability to reason but not all of us use it. We look for an easy road and accept the dainties the liars and decievers offer us. If it stinks like looks like dead fish and smells like dead fish, it probably is dead fish. I won’t taste it to find out.

  • T Romani

    Basically In agreement with most said here. But unfortunately the brainwashing of America is working. The numbers that Ron Paul is bringing in from the states he has and is still running in are dismally understated proof that we can not get him in as president. I would vote for him if he had but a chance. Like it or NOT, we are left with the only alternative to any hope for minuscule change over No Change at all. That leaves us with Mitt Romney. He will certainly not be the same as the HORROR we are living now. So that in itself, is reason for getting the Blowhard of Lies, out of here. And we will only help him to stay in his job, if we do not stick together to GET HIM OUT! He is after all, counting on the fact, that we are not capable of doing that. We need to prove him wrong, We cannot continue on this same path, anything is better than Nothing, NoBama!!

    “War is a racket.” – General Smedley D. Butler, USMC

    “The trouble is that when American dollars earn only six percent over here, they get restless and go overseas to get 100 percent. The flag follows the dollar and the soldiers follow the flag.

    “I wouldn’t go to war again as I have done to defend some lousy investment of the bankers. We should fight only for the defense of our home and the Bill of Rights. War for any other reason is simply a racket.

    “There isn’t a trick in the racketeering bag that the military gang is blind to. It had its ‘finger men’ to point out enemies, its ‘muscle men’ to destroy enemies, its ‘brain men’ to plan war preparations and a ‘Big Boss’ – supernationalistic capitalism.

    “I spent 33 years in the Marines. Most of my time being a high-class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street and the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer for capitalism.

    “I helped purify Nicaragua for the international banking house of Brown Brothers in 1909-1912. I helped make Mexico and especially Tampico safe for American oil interests in 1914. I brought light to the Dominican Republic for American sugar interests in 1916. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenue in. I helped in the rape of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefit of Wall Street.

    More of cognitive dissonance is present again. There is propaganda everyday of our lives and it comes from many sources. Some are not responsible enough to tell proven stories and rant and rave and they have their following no matter what stories they are telling. It comes from all sides but my rule is when it sounds too far off then probably it is not true so I investigate myself, and I do not use youtube as my resource. We must remail on the side of the truth, such as so many stilling to accept Obama’s birth certificate to this day. We can rewrite history and spin events all we want but the truth still sets us free.

    The America people have become mired with confusion, they no longer as a people focused on the issues that is causing America decline, Both political parties represent special interest that fund their political campaign. Neither Obama nor Romney will be able to get America out of the hole.
    The Republican Party has become fragmented that it lacks direction and may never at this point win an election, like it or not Obama people are more focused on how to get the majority vote and win the next election.
    When the pain amongst the American people become severe like it did in Russia, we may see a revolution occur by violent means, that time has not arrived; it may take perhaps 10 years from now.

    The need for Bob to answer the questions I asked, at least the ones he judges to be not too personal, is entirely appropriate and necessary to properly evaluate his point of view. It doesn’t matter one bit whether you understand the importance of his answers or the point about context that I am making. I’m sure he has nothing to hide.

      You are without a doubt a Liberal. It only took me five minutes to find the two quotes of yours that I posted. Do you doubt that I can find many more comments of yours to back up my contention that you’re a Liberal?


        Some people like to be in a state of self-denial as to what is happening to America you may be one of them. Do you believe all of the garbage that both political parties are telling the people. Do you know that our present Government of either parties serve spe interest only. Both parties contributed to the deficit mess, there are no way given the present Government make out of the USA that the problem will be solved as to the massive deficit. It is being solved by a conservative Government in the UK. Massive cuts from defense to welfare, medical, the list goes on and on, also many Government agency employments are being reduced. The USA needs to say one day we shall no longer be the police man of the world, such statement has to come from both political party, The true defense budget is not what is declared there are many Government expenditure connected with the defense budget. Greek debt mess is nothing compared to what is going to happen to the US dollar in the next two years. It will have no impact on you if you are savvy investor such as Soros or Jim Rogers.

    Terrorist Op-Ed: Libya’s Al Qaeda Rebel Commander(Abdul Belhaj) Writes Column for Britain’s Progressive Media

    Global elite defile memories of “War on Terror” dead, humor terrorist Abdul Belhaj who fought and killed Western troops.

    …civilians fleeing the brutalized city(of Sirte) are claiming NATO and revolutionaries, not Qaddafi, are committing genocide against the civilians of Libya.

    Mr. Belhaj has had time, apparently, allegedly, to draft a lengthy editorial titled, “The revolution belongs to all Libyans, secular or not,” gladly published by the London Guardian, where he is allowed to go on at length, whitewashing what is essential a life-long career in terrorism and expound the merits of the wholesale mass murder he and his cohorts, under NATO cover, are committing against the Libyan people.

    Belhaj, for those that don’t know, is a founding member of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG), an official Al Qaeda affiliate, and listed by both the US State Department and the United Kingdom Home Office as a foreign terrorist organization and proscribed terrorist organization respectively.

    As Americans we are used to not standing up for what we believe. Alot of the statements in this article are true. Again alot are lies about lies. If there was no difference between parties we wouldn’t still have the Constitution. Liberalism is the death of freedom. Believeing in the Constitution and our founding fathers wisdom brings you freedom. To say all is equal in our government means it is totalitarian government( which we aren’t. ) If you believe this man then you believe we have lost our freedom. I for one can’t and won’t believe it. Obama has proven that lying brings you temporary power but once proven a lying socialist pig he will lose it by the same means. Are we really at the point where someone writes how all politicians are bad . Really ?? Really ?? Everything is a lie? So all the killing of Christians and Jews is a lie. Islam isn’t all that bad. WOW!! how insightful. It is people like Bob Livingston who make it impossible to believe in anything. We are a government for the people by the people and until the day they pull all my rights and my gun from my cold clinching hands I will believe in our country as a beacon of hope for the world.Islamofacism is a real threat to all because they believe if you aren’t one of them you need to be terminated. There is no ” peace ” in it. It is all hate and anyone who doesn’t conform is to be dead.Where the hell has Bob Livingston been? Iran isn’t a threat? Really!!! Maybe not now but a nuclear Iran. I hope we don’t learn the hard way like on Sept. 11 , 2001. I am all for articles to provoke thought but this guy is a lunatic and obviously doesn’t believe in our Constitution anymore than Obama.


      Your comments lacks clarity, the constitution is over rated by Americans, The British has no constitution and its people rights are protected more than Americans. When a supreme court will rule that it is legal for corporate America with its large resources to contribute to a political campaign that ruling has caused to end your freedom. Today it is no longer a Government by the people, for the people it is a Government that serve special interest group. Both political parties are mired with failure, both contributed to the large deficit that makes America the largest debtor Nation on earth.
      Both parties support America role to be the policeman of the world that role will finally come to an end when the dollar collapse and wipes out the majority of Americans savings as it did in Germany which triggered hyper Inflation, that event created Hitler. Do not blame all of America problems on Obama he is no different to the others that started two wars on borrowed money.

    “A vote for either Mitt Romney or Obama is a vote for continued and reinforced fascism”..

    Or, as I consider it, “A vote for either Mitt Romney or Obama is a vote AGAINST Ron Paul!”. Now why in the world would you vote to cut off your own life-line? R.P. claims he will fight the criminal element in the name of the constitution. Neither Romney or Obama has even mentioned as much.. R.P. claims he will balance our budget within four years, Both Obama and Romney have no such plans. R.P. says we should bring our military home and butt out of other Countries who have been murdering each other for centuries and have made new enemies by trying to settle their arguments.. Obama means to escalate this mind thought, Romney is prepared to create more enemies. What you have told us Bob is that our own g’ment is our enemy, R.P. want’s to restructure if not dissolve the Federal Reserve, their whining.. Most of the political population is whining and neither Obama nor Romney wants to touch this sacred cow.. so.. What do you propose we do about it if even the vote doesn’t work? Have you a plan? An alternative? Right now there are secret camps being built.. Don’t think for a moment that they are being built to house common criminals as we have an inexhaustible private industry to tend with them nor for terrorists exclusively .. It’s prepared specifically for what the feds have surmised will happen immediately after Obama gets re-elected and on the 101st day after Romney proves his inability to lead if he gets elected. We’re nearing the edge of extinction and we believe what we have been told, that we can’t do anything about it.

    With a more physically fit American version of narcissist Idi Amin occupying ‘the people’s’ White House, have you wondered why a loving, all-knowing God has allowed this travesty to occur?

    Is the bully puppet of the U. N., IMF, Bilderbergers, CFR, Trilateral Commission, etc., going to drive the final nails into the coffin of our once proud republic, or does God have an ulterior motive in imposing the imposter upon us?

    Could God be using this ‘insult to our Founding Fathers’ wannabe dictator to rally our disparate and desperate citizenry together for a greater good?

    Is this God’s summons for the masses to become as involved in determining the future of our republic as the fringe Left and their foreign influencers are?

    Is God providing us with a door that opens to a possible Renaissance of our republic by acting responsibly in cherishing this gift provided to us by our forefathers and mothers?

    Hasn’t our unwitting ignorance or willful neglect of the serpent-like advances of those who are committed to stripping us of our souls and Constitutional freedoms allowed them unfettered access to the hallmarks of power within our classrooms and political offices?

    Isn’t it time to boot the Pied Pipers of planned Progressive poverty from their perches?

    In a family of three, there are at least three different opinions on any given issue, so, in a republic of over 300 million citizens, there are going to be many disagreements upon what is right or wrong, legal or illegal, etc.

    This is a blight upon mankind for Adam and Eve’s sin of rebellion against God.

    This is why we, as a republic, must call upon the uncommon truths seeded into our republic through our Declaration of Independence, Constitution, Bill of Rights and additional Amendments to repel the encroachment of all forces seeking our demise.

    Replacing God with self-appointed dictators within our society is the ultimate prize of this cabal, as they amass and further concentrate their centralization of power and wealth.

    They will use everything and everyone necessary in their Charles Manson-like efforts to mobilize the low-hanging fruit of society into a formidable force against God and good. God is demanding that His God-loving and God-fearing people respond to the assaults upon Him and His people!

    Recent legislation reveals how determined the cabal is in imposing its un-constitutional will upon us.

    With the Lying King lying in wait within his lair, members of Congress have acted in a bipartisan effort to further strip mine our freedoms at a time when our freedoms are at their weakest point since the inception of our republic. NDAA and HR-347 are just the latest knives in the backs of both patriotic citizens and the unwitting lemmings of the Left.

    We have devolved into an ‘us (the citizenry of our republic) vs. them (the unenlightened despots inside the District of Corruption and those in elective governments throughout our republic) confrontational battleground.’

    There are too few genuinely representing us, and too many abusing us, including the co-conspiratorial NEA and media in protecting our attackers, with the intention of limiting opposition from an uniformed and apathetic proletariat.

    Consider, also, the sinister genius of the OWH (Occupying the White House) cabal.

    This cabal invents and orchestrates the OWS rabble, widening a wedge within our society, creating a highly charged and highly visible distraction from the realities of the record of the Lying King by fomenting dissent against the reliable whipping boys and girls of Wall Street.

    The atrocities of the 2011 OWS lemmings were just a prelude to greater mayhem in 2012. The OWH terrorists are playing the OWS ‘sophisticates’ for the rubes they truly are.

    Add to this espionage the assault upon donors to the Romney campaign as noted within the ‘Wall Street Journal,’ and we need to brace for even greater skullduggery as our electoral process and voting rights devolve over the next six months.

    Why would anyone within the Federal or a state government stand against a free and easily obtained Photo ID (used in numerous transactions), unless it is to rig an election?

    The fact that a foreign company, SCYTL, with ties to George Soros, has taken over SOE, the leading election management software solutions company in the U. S., leads one to question if the election hasn’t already been stolen, and the election cycle is a fatal facade!

    Amidst all of this ominous gloom and doom, we have a genuine opportunity in defeating the Satan-inspired incursion of the Progressive Left.

    First, we can pray to God that He will extend His divine hand and providence upon us in our hour of need. We need to ask for His forgiveness and His assistance in helping us to think, speak and act in accordance with His Ten Commandments.

    When we do this, not only are we drawn closer to Him, but we are drawn closer to like-minded people around us, within our families, friends, co-workers, and others within our parishes, congregations, synagogues, communities, etc. We have seen how impotent we are when we are divided, so why not unite upon the basic, core issues common to our moral and human reality, to dispatch those threatening our faith and our freedoms?

    Secondly, it is imperative that we become more involved in defending our faith and freedoms. Expect things to become very ugly, and we need to ask ourselves some very direct questions.

    Are our faiths and freedoms worth fighting for? Are they worth dying for?

    Is living as a slave to the invisible puppeteers of the state worth living, and are we willing to have this as our legacy for future generations?

    Why, or why not?

    What are we willing to do to ensure that Socialism is repelled from inside our borders?

    What are we teaching our children and grandchildren?



      Look no further than Americans they are destroying their own country for the benefit of the few.Your comments lacks clarity, the constitution is over rated by Americans, The British has no constitution and its people rights are protected more than Americans. When a supreme court will rule that it is legal for corporate America with its large resources to contribute to a political campaign that ruling has caused to end your freedom. Today it is no longer a Government by the people, for the people it is a Government that serve special interest group. Both political parties are mired with failure, both contributed to the large deficit that makes America the largest debtor Nation on earth.
      Both parties support America role to be the policeman of the world that role will finally come to an end when the dollar collapse and wipes out the majority of Americans savings as it did in Germany which triggered hyper Inflation, that event created Hitler. Do not blame all of America problems on Obama he is no different to the others that started two wars on borrowed money. There is a racist overtone in your comments about Obama. Remember the era of white supremely is coming to an end. As the American empire falls the role will go to China a none European country.

        JOSEPH FOSTER, I don’t think the Constitution is over rated. What any stable nation needs is a stable body of law and that was what the Constitution was for: Stability. The problem we have now is the mountain of laws that nobody can keep or understand but that our criminal government can use against us. The word constitution, statute and statue are related.

        Etymology of the word constitute: Middle English, from Latin, constitutus, past participle of constituere to set up, constitute, from com- +statuere to set— more at STATUTE

        Etymology of the word statue: Middle English, from middle French, from Latin statua, from statuere- to set up. More at STATUTE.

        Why go through all of this? Because all nations including England need stable laws whether they have a written constitution or not. We happen to have a Constitution that was meant to be like a statue…unmoving and very stable and most of us want to return to that stability that we have lost.

        As to Hitler and hyperinflation? It wasn’t just the hyperinflation that led to the conditions that would make it possible for Hitler to rise to power but it was a combination of things that arose from the Treaty of Versailles and the Great Depression that brought about hyperinflation that made this possible.

        This I whole heartily agree with, “oday it is no longer a Government by the people, for the people it is a Government that serve special interest group. Both political parties are mired with failure, both contributed to the large deficit that makes America the largest debtor Nation on earth.”


          Katrel you have now provided some clarity by your comments, I agree with most of what you have said, as to the Treaty of Versailles signed on June 1919 the harsh terms began to place a strain on the German Economy. Massive unemployment and poverty creates a leader of the like of Hitler. His economic achievement cannot be denied the rest was a disaster for the German people. As to The American constitution my word overrated perhaps was not the appropriate word. Americans have come to belief that because they have a written constitution which I support that all will be well for ever in protecting their freedom and Democracy. Judges are appointed by politicians some go beyond interpretation and began to legislate from the bench, such acts has begun to destroy the freedom of the American people.
          If one wants to predict the future of America all he or she needs is refer to History. The future of America looks very bad. Many eminent scholars said the fall of an empire is caused by Debt and imperlsim. Both political parties are not capable of turning America around to prosperity, both continue to support America role as the policeman of the world a role to day it can no longer afford. It has adopted a trade policy that is De Industrialize America. Obama has just released a video that will destroy Romney; ‘It is titled ‘Romney Economics’ I believe in a few weeks before the election it will be used as a commercial on all TV station. It describes how Romney took a steel company and after extracting all of the money dumped the company into Bankruptcy leaving the workers unemployed, the workers whom are elderly were made to air their views. If I were to be asked who is my favorite candidate I will choose Ross Perrot. He builds companies and create employment.
          Did you know that a none Industrialize country maintains unemployment at the rate between 20% to 30% some will say but ah technology will cause us to rise, but that technology is no longer confined to America and Western Europe? The Chinese and Indians are creating more scientist and engineers than the entire western world. In my book I have a chapter titled, ‘The China Story’’ It was not completed until I made a trip to China on a fact finding mission.

            JOSEPH FOSTER, people have to take the responsibility to protect their freedoms by forcing the government to follow the constitution. It’s called “eternal vigilance” The constitution was meant to set guidelines for how the government conducts itself in the affairs of the people and not the other way around. When people go to sleep they stop being vigilant and that is when our government became corrupt. Now some of us have awaken and we have become alarmed by what we see. We have begun to demand that our government return itself to the duties it was originally assigned to do.

  • Katrael

    There sure are a lot of lies being told but not all of them are told by liars. I think Bod’s post is excellent. Of course I don’t quite agree with everything. I agree with Tom W. and some others here that there is a threat to us from the Islamofacists. How much of a threat? I don’t know.

    There is Scriptural evidence to support the contention that Islam posses a threat.

    Gen 16:11 And the angel of YHWH said unto her, Behold, thou art with child, and shalt bear a son, and shalt call his name Ishmael; because YHWH hath heard thy affliction.
    Gen 16:12 And he will be a wild man; his hand will be against every man, and every man’s hand against him; and he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren.

    There is more than enough documentation that many Arabs cooperated with Nazi Germany. Many see what Hitler did and they applauded it and I believe that they supported Nazi Germany because they saw that it was a solution to their problem with their half brother.

    As to Islam being a threat to the US. I know a person who spent time in Saudi Arabia and he claims that while they had no problems with individual Americans that they despised America. Saudi Arabia is friendly enough with the US but this isn’t true about all Arab Nations. They have had to rely on the US as they needed our expertise and money but when we finally go broke much of this will change. But, why would the Arabs hate the Us? Because it’s ways are contrary to theirs and the other reason is that many Americans are descendants of Ishmael’s half brother Isaac. How do we know this? Well, most people don’t but there is more than enough secular evidence that this is true. There are books about this subject and a fairly good one comes to mind: “The Lost Ten Tribes of Israel…Found!” by Steven M. Collins. Collins does a good job of tracking the people who would become to numerable to count:

    Gen 15:3 And Abram said, Behold, to me thou hast given no seed: and, lo, one born in my house is mine heir.
    Gen 15:4 And, behold, the word of YHWH came unto him, saying, This shall not be thine heir; but he that shall come forth out of thine own bowels shall be thine heir.
    Gen 15:5 And he brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he said unto him, So shall thy seed be.

    Gen 28:10 And Jacob went out from Beersheba, and went toward Haran.
    Gen 28:11 And he lighted upon a certain place, and tarried there all night, because the sun was set; and he took of the stones of that place, and put them for his pillows, and lay down in that place to sleep.
    Gen 28:12 And he dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold the angels of God ascending and descending on it.
    Gen 28:13 And, behold,YHWH stood above it, and said, I am YHWH God of Abraham thy father, and the God of Isaac: the land whereon thou liest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed;
    Gen 28:14 And thy seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and thou shalt spread abroad to the west, and to the east, and to the north, and to the south: and in thee and in thy seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed.

    Where did all of these people go? They have scattered over all of the earth and many came here. Mostly Manasseh. There has always been a rivalry between the brothers over who were the real chosen people and the wild man especially despises his half brother but he is certainly against “every man”.

    • Wildey

      True there are a mountain of laws but the only way to cure that is a return to God’s code of conduct for action and interaction, morality. Are we up to it or will we continue to credence to the persuasions of Satan. We have a choice you know. The road we’re taking takes us straight to bondage while the other road grants Liberty. You need laws for an immoral and amoral people while moral people have a right to claim their God given Liberty.

      Hitler was against Theodor Herzl’s Zionist movement and he equated all Jews and Israeli’s with it which is not true. Many many Jews and Israeli’s are deeply opposed to it. The Zionist movement was and is being felt in the middle east and many Arabs did and do the same thing. Somewhere around 35,000 Jews live in Iran under Ahmadinejad who wouldn’t set foot in Zionist Israel.

      • Katrael

        Wildey, I see things this way: people who are moral don’t break moral law and therefore don’t fall under the penalties (curse) of the law and as you say they are entitled to the liberty. granted by YHWH.

        Hitler: He was against anybody who was not of his pure race that might pollute it and it didn’t matter if they were Jewish, Catholic, Black, mentally retarded or whatever. His elite troops were obviously made up of brutal homosexuals.

        There is only one true way and that’s YHWH’s way.

  • Katrael

    Israel will be attacked but not just by the Arabs:

    Zec 14:1 Behold, the day of YHWH cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee.
    Zec 14:2 For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city.

    Is this an end time prophecy? Most certainly:

    Zec 14:9 And YHWH shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one YHWH, and his name one.

    But why would YHWH allow this to happen to Israel in the first place? I believe that part of Bob’s contention may be true. It’s possible that the secular government of Israel is supporting America’s War on Terrorism and I do believe that our government is using this War to distract the people from what it is doing to subjugate and enslave our own people. Still, there is a very real threat by the Islamofacists.

    Keep enough oil handy and keep your wicks trimmed. Our Messiah will come.


      Katrel, The Arabs politicians use Israel for propaganda purpose to distract them from their failures. Where it not for the Shia population in Lebanon that is tied to Hezbollah and Iran, Lebanon will make peace with Israel

      • Katrael

        Joseph Foster, I know that this may sound incredible to you but I don’t currently have the price of the book to spend. I earn less than 2K a year so I’m very frugal with what I do have. Could you provide a synopsis for this book? Yes, America is losing it’s future.

  • Mongo

    You are correct, sir. It amazes me how easy it is to see this and yet most folks will laugh or get mad when you tell them these things.

  • Pat G.

    That master iconoclast H. L. Mencken was oh so right when he wrote: All government, in its essence, is a conspiracy against the superior man.

    The most serious danger to this country isn’t terrorism or economic conspiracies, it’s the elevation of the gullible and the ignorant to that of ideal citizens. If this were not so, how could Obama have ever made it to the White House?

  • theresa

    About Obama sending in Seal Team 6 to take out Bin Laden, who we so highly regard as the ‘best of the best’(and they most definitely are), why then, when their helicopter was shot down and all of the best Seals Team 6 we have, died, it wasn’t even mentioned in mainstream???? These ppl should have had a lot of attention given to them, it should have been HUGH news. More proof that it was a lie….they had to be taken out!

  • Glenn Marks

    All statements appear basically true save for the last. Ron Paul is just another puppet, albeit one whose time has come. They have no fear of him because he is a Mason as was his father and indicated by his wife and daughters belonging to Freemason associated organizations. Like the Rockefeller bankers he is pro austerity, which is to be expected since Ludwig Von Mises was Rockefeller funded. Ron Paul’s gold standard is exactly what all the other major international institutions, like the IMF, desire and why not, they control and manipulate the gold and always have.

    Ron Paul doesn’t care for the unemployed. He voted against extending unemployment. He’s big business all the way. He voted against investigating OPEC & against monitoring TARP funds to see that they went to aid homeowners. Yes, he may audit the federal reserve but he wants monetary control in private hands just like the Rockefellers. Ask him.

    Not a word from Ron Paul about investigating the banking establishment even though William K. Black (S&L investigator) and the FBI agree it’s been rife with fraud for several years.

    Ron Paul’s biggest contributor is Peter Thiel, the billionaire, who is on the Bildeberger board. Ask Captain Eric May how much Ron Paul helped him when May discovered
    an impending false flag attack on Texas City, right in Ron Paul’s jurisdiction.

    Stop being played for suckers and worshiping this hypocrit folks and do your research.

    • ohoh

      You obviously haven’t really understood anything Ron Paul has said, and until you get out of that right-left sandbox that’s been created to distract us, you may never discern the difference Mr. Paul offers.

  • cawmun cents

    There are two types of lies.The lie of commision(nearly always attributable to the male end of the spectrum),and the lie of omission(nearly always attributable to the female end of the spectrum).
    Leaving out pertinent information is as much a lie as out and out telling an untruth.
    There is really no difference other than the approach to how it is done.
    It is still an intentional form of deceit.
    So take your pick….one way or the other,deceit is often the game of those who choose to manipulate others for nefarious purposes.

  • Mary Gribble

    A Ron Paul comes around maybe once in about 200 years. Believe it or not, Mr. Glen Marks, there are people who are not “groupies” as you infer they must be, who understand what Ron Paul’s message is and realize that time is not short, but barely there at all. More research is needed. Representatives must often “trade” votes with the other side of a proposal in order to get their own more vital proposal passed This is, under our system, both legal and moral. Life is tough.
