Escape the money matrix and preserve (or increase!) your money’s value

That the truth is stranger than fiction is never more evident to me than when I sit down for a little entertainment and watch a science fiction movie.

Do you remember “The Matrix”?

This exchange really struck home for me:

“The Matrix is the world that has been pulled over your eyes, to blind you from the truth.

What truth?

That you are a slave… like everyone else, you were born into bondage, born into a prison that you cannot smell or taste or touch. A prison… for your mind.”

We are all of us in a monetary prison for our minds, perpetrated by the greatest scam in the history of currency — fiat money.

If you don’t believe you’ve been deceived, then I want you to do something for me. Say these words to yourself, slowly:

Deficit spending.

National debt.

Taxpayer dollars.

To pay.

To owe.

Simple interest.

Spend your money.

Now study these words, because they are being used to create a world that is being pulled over your eyes, to blind you from the truth… that you are a monetary slave.

It’s nothing to be ashamed of. Nearly everyone is deceived by these words. The smartest, brightest and best people you know are being fooled by ­— and with — these words.

As I’ve mentioned before, the late Merrill Jenkins, author of the books Money, the Greatest Hoax on Earth, and Free Money, and those who learned from him, may be the only ones who have been freed from this prison.

The reason we don’t notice that we are being enslaved is the way the deception has been achieved. It’s slow depreciation by design.

If the government took away the value of your money all at once, why, people would notice… and revolt.

But that hasn’t happened because the dollar is being devalued slowly over time, so that those in power can use what I call “benevolent totalitarianism” to gain control over you.

You see, impoverished people are easier to control.

So little by little, the government devalues your money — and introduces the terminology of monetary slavery — until you’re in a prison you don’t even notice.

The elites gain and keep power and wealth this way…

Merrill Jenkins exposed the Fed’s “wealth stealing” secrets to the American public. Merrill Jenkins was the original “Monetary Realist.” He made it his life’s mission to expose the government and the Fed’s conspiracy to counterfeit all U.S. coins and paper money… after he unknowingly gave them the means to pull off their hoax. He set out to warn all American’s how this “currency conspiracy” would ultimately destroy the U.S. dollar and steal the wealth of all Americans little by little… right out from under our noses.

Next week I’m going to tell you more about Merrill Jenkins and the Fed’s underhanded and ongoing theft of American’s wealth, so look for my letter to you then.

Here’s one of the things Jenkins talked a lot about… the reserve “note.”

It’s not actually a note. A true note can be exchanged for real monetary wealth — silver or gold.

Sure, the current Federal Reserve Note looks like such a certificate. The silver certificate, for example. But if you went to the Fed demanding silver or gold in exchange for your dollar, you would be turned away like a fox at a hen convention.

And the Fed sure does make buying dollars look good, buy paying more dollars in interest to the folks that buy them. For several decades, central banks were dumping their gold to get interest-bearing debt from the United States.

The Chinese were, until recently, the biggest buyers of American debt paper. But Beijing has become disenchanted with the dollar as they see the value of their massive reserve holdings shrinking in the vaults… yet Americans don’t see this declining value. Because of the words I mentioned earlier, it all seems fine.

But think back to the 50s… your money was worth enough that you could have one earner in the house. One person could support a family of four. Today, if you want the same standard of living, you need possibly three jobs, or more.

So, what to do? How do you reverse this drain on the value of your dollars?

After all, there are no more respectable interest rates in money markets, for example. The Fed has lowered interest rates so much that whereas you could once hold a certificate of deposit, or invest in a money market fund, and get 7 percent or more, even up to 15 percent.

Now, they’ve made it so that you have to go to the stock market if you want a return. This of course boosts the wealth of the elites. Especially since the smart money buys low and sells high.

But if you think you can do the same, think again. Why do you think the media breathlessly reports on stock market highs, and celebrates stock price highs, but considers the lows to be bad? It’s so that you, the average investor, will get excited and be the one to buy the high-value stocks… and then dump them as they lose value… where the smart money picks them up for a song and does the same thing to you again a little while later.

You have to get off this money-losing treadmill. One way to do that is to de-couple the value of your money from the devaluing dollar.

Now, normally I am against Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) for buying gold and silver because you don’t know if they actually hold any. But in this case, we’re talking about using fiat money to win at their own game.

But one reason the stock market is so high is that it’s one of the only places to go that’s safe for world investors when their economies are headed downward (because our stock market is propped up by the devaluing dollar).

Foreign money floods in, making our stock market soar, as it’s been doing for a few years now.

But if you follow the currency markets like I do, you’ll notice that the recently strong dollar is starting to give way to the devaluing forces again. It pretty much peaked a few months ago, and now world currencies are stabilizing against the dollar, and even rising. That means dollars will be turned in for foreign currencies, and that’s where your opportunity is. The dollar may go back on the decline, but this process will boost foreign currencies.

To link your money to this uptrend, you can invest in foreign currency ETFs that will rise as the dollar falls. This is called a “currency-hedged” financial product.

Currency ETFs are designed so that they mimic the movements of the target currencies in the exchange market. Now, traditional ETFs fall under the auspices of the Investment Company Act of 1940. However most currency ETFs are “grantor trusts” governed under the Securities Act of 1933. What that means is that they’re created and redeemed in each respective foreign currency and they don’t use any leverage or derivatives. So they merely hold actual currency as deposits. Some, however, do use futures contracts to try and multiply their returns on the underlying currency. So you want to be sure which you are buying.

Remember that you do not want a U.S.-centric ETF. You want our currency taken out. I would recommend a currency-basket ETF which will track a few foreign currencies, as opposed to trying to pick one currency yourself through a single currency ETF. Stick with the major markets, as opposed to emerging market currencies.

There are quite a few major companies that sell currency-linked ETFs. Dreyfus, Guggenheim, Schwab, Deutsche Bank and WisdomTree are a few. However, be aware of the expense ratio eating into your profits. Ratios of .50 percent and above are fairly high. Some can be above .80 percent. Always keep in mind that there are financial products offered by well-respected firms designed solely to generate fees from the uninformed.

Another way to hedge against the inherent falling value of the dollar is to invest in companies that make strong earnings by doing a lot of business overseas — yet employ Americans and American know-how to do it. I’m going to be talking to you a lot more about that opportunity in the near future. I’m working on two special reports that will help you earn real returns and grow your wealth this way, so keep reading and I’ll show you exactly what you need to know.

Supreme Court has not the authority to redefine marriage

Although they seem to think they do, five Ivy League-educated lawyers in league with the Prince of Darkness have not the authority to redefine marriage, which was not defined by man in the first place.

God established marriage in Genesis 2:23-24, “The man said, ‘This at last is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.’ Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.” (ESV)

The Supreme Court is not the first to try and change the institution’s definition. As Christ explained to the Pharisees in Matthew 19, Moses’ command to issue a certificate of divorce did not change God’s definition of marriage. “… Have you not read that he who created them from the beginning made them male and female, and said, ‘Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate.” They said to him, “Why then did Moses command one to give a certificate of divorce and to send her away?” He said to them, “Because of your hardness of heart Moses allowed you to divorce your wives, but from the beginning it was not so. And I say to you: whoever divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, and marries another, commits adultery.” (Matt. 19:4-9, ESV)

As it was in the beginning, and as it was in the 1st century, so it is today.

While the Supreme Court can write a tortured and illogical ruling to attempt to redefine legal marriage, it has no authority over spiritual marriage as God established. Anything other than a God-sanctioned marriage is sexual immorality.

The five justices who wrote the majority opinion should know that. Two are Catholic. Three are Jews. They were certainly — if they were ever “practicing” Catholics and Jews — taught the truth about marriage. Sadly, they’ve sacrificed their souls on the altar of universalism (look for more on universalism in Monday’s column, “How have we fallen so far?”). They will answer for their apostasy.

Marriage has not changed as far as God is concerned; therefore, it has not changed as far as the Christian is concerned. Take heart in that, fellow Christian.

Remember what the Fourth of July stands for

The Fourth of July is more than fireworks, barbecue and watermelon — much more. It’s a day that marks the anniversary of one of the most momentous occasions in human history.

On that day in 1776, 56 brave men signed their names to the Declaration of Independence, proclaiming that the 13 original American colonies were no longer willing to live under tyrannical British rule.

Those men, among them some of the most notable names in American history, risked their own fortunes, their safety and that of their families by signing the document; they were still in the earliest stages of a war against an enemy that vastly outgunned them and was better trained. By signing their names to the very spirit of patriotism, the men risked being hanged in the event of defeat; and they risked consigning their families to lives of misery and poverty and persecution.

But they were not alone. Thousands of the signers’ fellow countrymen had already denounced loyalty to Great Britain and taken up arms against the British in the name of American independence. Seven bloody years after the signing of the Declaration and eight bloody years after the initial shots at Lexington and Concord, a new, free, republican nation was born.

Those 56 who risked their lives by signing their names to a document that declared in no uncertain terms that they meant to create a better place where freedom reigned supreme would undoubtedly have trouble recognizing their nation today. Given the state of political discourse and the tendency for bureaucracy to destroy freedom in order to centralize power and enrich the oligarchs, the federal government has effectively come to represent everything for which those men claimed disdain in the Declaration.

Have you ever actually read the Declaration? If so, how long ago was it? Only by reading the document can one understand just how the United States has come full circle back to tyranny.

Click here to read the document in its entirety. Read it slowly, and pay extra attention to the stated list of grievances. How many of those can we reasonably claim today?

For a thorough historical background and to better understand the Declaration’s signers, read “They Signed for Us,” which was written by Merle Sinclair and Annabel Douglas McArthur and first published in 1957.

If you have a little more time, visit readthedeclaration.com to request a free copy of the Declaration and the Constitution and to add your name to the list of Americans who read the founding documents over the holiday. Or better yet, buy three copies of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution — one for each of your two senators and one congressweasel — and mail a copy to each with an admonition for them to read it and legislate accordingly.

But most of all, take time from your celebratory fireworks, meal preparations or travel to remember the Fourth of July, those brave men and women who fought for freedom, and what liberty really means.

Was Cyprus the beginning of the end for the euro?

(I began publishing my monthly newsletter The Bob Livingston Letter™ in 1969. The following is an excerpt from the July 2013 issue in which I warned of the coming euro meltdown now being seen in Greece. Greek banks are shuttered and depositors stand to lose most or all of their deposits to the banksters. I have long warned my readers to get their money out of banks, advising them to keep only that which is needed to cover a couple months’ worth of bills and keep cash on hand, and the experiences of the Cypriots and Greeks are precisely why.)

The Ides of March struck a crippling blow to large bank depositors in Cyprus. It won’t matter much to most people in the world that a bunch of rich Russians lost a bundle of cash. What should matter is that the event could well mark the beginning of the end for the euro. It should also serve as a very large bright red flag to savers of the world that the cash they have entrusted to the care of banks is in grave danger — if not now then on some unexpected day in the non-distant future.

You already know the details inside and out, but since that was three months ago, I’ll briefly recap the story to refresh your memory. Banks in Cyprus got into trouble making too many high-risk loans and loading up on “iffy” Greek sovereign debt. Struggling to stand up on this financial quicksand foundation, Cyprus’ government was in imminent danger of defaulting on its debt and leaving the eurozone.

So in March, the Cypriot bigwigs followed SOP (standard operating procedure) these days for freeloader countries — they asked their European neighbors to bail them out. The “troika” — the International Monetary Fund, the European Commission, and the European Central Bank — said, “Sure, we’ll help out” but with some draconian strings attached. For ponying up €10 billion ($13 billion) to save the Cypriots’ bacon, they demanded that instead of their own taxpayers having to dole out money to the ne’er-do-wells, people with money in the bank in Cyprus should foot the bill.

The first proposal from the troika was that all depositors in Cypriot banks pay a tax on their assets. That’s a deeply chilling proposition in itself, that it was even considered. But it didn’t happen. The Cypriot parliament rejected the idea, even if it meant financial meltdown in the country. More high-level jibber-jabber followed.

After a tense and often bitter 11th hour session of negotiations, a Robin Hood deal was struck to steal from the rich depositors to give to the poor bankers. Depositors with more than €100,000 ($130,000) would be forced to bite the bullet, outright losing at least 40 percent of their money, according to official estimates, and more likely all of their uninsured deposits, according to some analysts and even some sources within the government. It’s been dubbed “Plunderball” and “The Great Cypriot Train Robbery” — and those are the nicer things it’s being called.

The funds confiscated/expropriated/stolen from the bank depositors will prop up the Cypriot government and banks for awhile. But like all the other band-aid solutions the Europeans have applied to their hemorrhaging euro system, the Cyprus “fix” only kicks the can down the road to be tripped over again later. As with the earlier bailouts of Greece, Spain, Portugal and Ireland, as well as banks and brokerages in the U.S., the handout did nothing to cleanse the social and economic rot that caused the crisis in the first place.

Cyprus kept its banks closed for two weeks as the crisis unfolded, fearing a run on deposits. When the banks reopened at the end of March, tight capital controls were in place, limiting withdrawal amounts, banning check cashing and severely restricting capital flows out of the country.

So another weak southern European country gets rescued from the jaws of disaster. So what’s new? Big bailouts of too-big-to-fail financial institutions have become common since the asylum escapees in Washington started it all after the 2007 banking blowup in the U.S. What’s different about the Cyprus deal, what’s so disturbingly scary about it is not so much the bailout itself, but the strings that came with it.

The puppet-masters in Europe shattered a fundamental foundation of the entire banking concept — trust. Since the Assyrians and Babylonians first started experimenting with the idea of banking around 2000 B.C., it has been a core article of faith for people to trust their wealth to the care of bankers. When that trust has been violated — as it has many times over the millennia — confidence in the institution of banking has had its knees kicked out from under it. People who have suffered the loss of their assets through banking malfeasance, greed, stupidity or outright theft can never again fully trust a bank.

The Cyprus financial crisis on its own was not that big a deal. Cyprus is a minor player on the world economic stage with an annual GDP of only about €17 billion ($22 billion). The economy is built mainly on tourism and a bloated banking system engorged with expatriate offshore cash from rich foreigners, mainly Russians (including the Russian mafia) who don’t trust their own banks at home (Boy, did THEY get a surprise in Cyprus!). Even if Cyprus had defaulted on its debt and exited the eurozone, there would have been some isolated and temporary pain in the global financial system, but it would not have brought the world to its knees.

Yet, the far-reaching consequences of the Cyprus bailout are profound. By opening the Pandora’s box of bank deposit taxation and expropriation, the Europeans made it clear that nobody’s money is safe in a bank, now or ever again.

Brien Lundin, editor of “Gold Newsletter,” wrote, “Make no mistake: When Cypriot authorities attempted to pilfer the accounts of its citizen savers, they cracked the foundation of not only their banking system, but that of the entire Eurozone and perhaps much of the world. Because the unthinkable became thinkable in flash.”

Neil Irwin commented in The Washington Post, “If you are a depositor in a European bank, you now have every incentive in the world to move your money somewhere safer, or even to keep it in cash, the minute you detect any hint that your nation could end up in the same place Cyprus did. The next time there is a banking panic in Europe, it will move much faster, and be much harder to control, than those of the recent past, as depositors try to get ahead of future losses and capital controls.

And that’s a scary proposition indeed.” Bob Pisani, CNBC “On-Air Stocks” Editor, noted that “Three points seemed especially relevant: 1) Bank creditors face greater risks than taxpayers; 2) Depositors are unsecured creditors; 3) The free movement of capital is in doubt.”

Andrew W. Sutton, chief market strategist for Sutton & Associates, issued a stark warning to all bank depositors: “When the chips are down, hold onto your wallet. If the rest of the world has learned nothing else from this ordeal, it should be that nothing in the economic/financial world is sacrosanct, especially when it comes to assets…The bottom line is there is no such thing as a depositor guarantee. Not anymore. You’re on your own.”

The global fallout from the Cyprus deal has so far been muted. Yet, there are serious rumblings that contagion from it could spell the end of the European Union because it has set a precedent that may be repeated in future financial crises.

Jeroen Dijsselbloem, the Dutch chairman of the Eurozone, said shortly after the deal was announced that the heavy losses inflicted on depositors in Cyprus would be the template for future banking crises across Europe. “If there is a risk in a bank, our first question should be ‘Okay, what are you in the bank going to do about that? What can you do to recapitalize yourself?’” Dijsselbloem said. “If the bank can’t do it, then we’ll talk to the shareholders and the bondholders, we’ll ask them to contribute in recapitalizing the bank, and if necessary the uninsured deposit holders.”

I added the emphasis to draw your attention to this critical point: Now that the genie is out of the lamp, they plan to use official theft of savers’ deposits in the future.

Dijsselbloem crawfished on the statement within hours and other EU officials chimed in with denials that Cyprus was a “template.”

Too late. The world got the message. The Cyprus event by itself will not destroy the euro. But the fact is that more bank depositor “haircuts” in other beleaguered countries (think Italy, for example) are not only possible but probable in the future. You can see the seeds of destruction for the euro as it dawns on people that their money is not safe in European banks, and by extension, not safe in the form of the euros those banks use.

It won’t happen tomorrow or the day after tomorrow. These things take time. But the fuse on the bomb is lit. How long the fuse is nobody really knows.

But it couldn’t happen here in the good ole U.S. of A, you say? Well, hold onto your hat — the U.S. and the U.K. have plans in place to take your money if they want to. Attorney Ellen Brown, president of the Public Banking Institute, writing for Counterpunch.org, said, “Confiscating the customer deposits in Cyprus banks, it seems, was not a one-off, desperate idea of a few Eurozone ‘troika’ officials scrambling to salvage their balance sheets. A joint paper by the U.S. Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation and the Bank of England dated December 10, 2012, shows that these plans have been long in the making; that they originated with the G20 Financial Stability Board in Basel, Switzerland and that the result will be to deliver clear title to the banks of depositor funds.”

Brown explains, “Although few depositors realize it, legally the bank owns the depositor’s funds as soon as they are put in the bank. Our money becomes the bank’s, and we become unsecured creditors holding IOUs or promises to pay.” The government paper, called “Resolving Globally Active, Systemically Important, Financial Institutions,” describes the process for “exchanging or converting a sufficient amount of the unsecured debt from the original creditors of the failed company [meaning the depositors] into equity [or stock]. In the U.S., the new equity would become capital in one or more newly formed operating entities.”

Says Brown, “If our IOUs are converted to bank stock, they will no longer be subject to insurance protection but will be ‘at risk’ and vulnerable to being wiped out, just as the Lehman Brothers shareholders were in 2008.”

So, let’s say you want to protect your wealth from confiscation by withdrawing your cash and converting it into hard assets like gold and silver, which you might choose to keep in your safety deposit box. Is your wealth safe?

“Apparently not — if it’s stored in a safety deposit box in the bank,” says Brown. “Homeland Security has reportedly told banks that it has authority to seize the contents of safety deposit boxes without a warrant when it’s a matter of ‘national security,’ which a major bank crisis no doubt will be.”

The day when bankers were respected as pillars of the community is long gone. On the public credibility scale, they rank somewhere between lawyers and used car salesmen.

Trust a banker at your own risk. And that includes central bankers of the world.

I suggest investing in a heavy fireproof safe in your home and installing a robust security system. And buy a big bad dog.

But remember that the thieves you have to worry most about are not the ones casing your house for a break-in. They’re the ones sitting behind desks in Washington.

Hypocrisy cake

The liberal/progressive mind is steeped in hypocrisy and double standard.

History began yesterday. Truth is the fleeting outrage of the moment. Nothing else matters.

Christians who refuse to violate their conscience and cater — whether it’s by baking a cake, photographing, making flower arrangements or hosting nuptials in their establishments — to homosexual “weddings” are bigots and haters, the liberal/progressive tells us. Upon establishing their businesses, Christians must check their belief system at the door. The Christian business owner’s principles become secondary to the privileges and desires of the customer.

Any deviation from this established dogma subjects the Christian business owner to state-sponsored harassment, fines, threats of imprisonment and sensitivity/diversity training courses, aka re-education camp. Such abuse is reasonable to the liberal/progressive.

But Wal-Mart’s refusing to bake a cake emblazoned with a Confederate battle flag and the words “Heritage not Hate” is a principled stand and perfectly acceptable to the liberal/progressive mind. When something the “tolerant” leftists will not tolerate is involved, refusal of service is a virtuous stand.

After all, erasing the Confederate battle flag from our history by shoving it down the memory hole would have prevented a lunatic from shooting nine people in a church, we are told in so many words.

In its statement on the ban of all things Confederate, Wal-Mart claimed, “We never want to offend anyone with the products we offer.”

The liberal/progressive advocates for an end to all things offensive, except for those things offensive to Christians.

The Christian must just “grin and bear it,” while the liberal/progressive snacks on a slice of hypocrisy cake.

Hydrogen peroxide is not just for cuts and scrapes

Hydrogen peroxide is often the go-to disinfectant for moms to use on their kids’ cuts and scrapes. But why do they stop there? Hydrogen peroxide has myriad other uses.

What else can it do? It can:

  • Eliminate viruses.
  • Remove pesticides from food.
  • Kill airborne germs.
  • Whiten teeth.
  • Eliminate stuffy sinuses.
  • Make an antiseptic mouth rinse.
  • Eliminate acne.
  • Cure boils.
  • Soften calluses and corns.
  • Remove ear wax.
  • Prevent ear infections like swimmer’s ear.
  • Eliminate foot fungus.
  • Disinfect toothbrushes.
  • Remove stains from clothing.
  • Disinfect counter tops and cutting boards.
  • Eliminate odors.
  • Remove and kill mold.
  • Eliminate soap scum.

These are just a few of its uses.

It can also shorten the duration of colds and influenza. Just put a few drops of 3 percent hydrogen peroxide in one ear and wait for it to quit bubbling (about five to 10 minutes). Then repeat in the other ear.

You can also use it to disinfect your stored water. Use four or five drops of 35 percent hydrogen peroxide per gallon of water.

For a complete list of uses and simple instructions, go here.

The disarming of victims


Commenting on Friday morning quarterbacking,
MasterWildfire says:
June 25, 2015 
So how did being unarmed, when they were attacked with deadly intent, work out for the UNARMED victims of “Gun Free” Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church?

Where has the cowardly Liberal-Progressive ideology of “The more helpless you are when attacked with deadly intent, the SAFER you are!” actually saved lives?

“Gun Free” Red Lake High School? – 9 slaughtered, 5 wounded

“Gun Free” Columbine? – 13 slaughtered, 21 wounded

“Gun Free” Sandy Hook? – 26 slaughtered, 2 wounded

“Gun Free” Virginia Tech? – 32 slaughtered, 17 wounded

“Gun Free” University of Arizona College of Nursing? – 3 slaughtered, 5 wounded

“Gun Free” University of Alabama (Huntsville)? – 2 slaughtered, 3 wounded

“Gun Free” Northern Illinois University? – 5 slaughtered, 17 wounded

Gun Free” Fort Hood 2009? – 13 slaughtered, 32 wounded

“Gun Free” Fort Hood 2014? – 3 slaughtered, 12 wounded

The “Gun Free” Century movie theater in Aurora? – 12 slaughtered, 70 wounded

The “Gun Free” Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church? – 9 slaughtered, 8 wounded

The “Gun Free” Gabby Giffords meet-n-greet? – 6 slaughtered, 13 wounded

And yes, the Gabby Giffords meet-n-greet shooting was indeed “Gun Free”, because while most of the victims COULD have been legally armed, NO ONE actually at the shooting took personal responsibility for their own safety by BEING armed.

And no, there was NO “concealed carry holder at the Gabby Giffords shooting, that ALMOST SHOT THE WRONG PERSON!”

That is simply a LIE.

By the time Joe Zamudio arrived at the shooting scene, the goblin had already been disarmed and was no longer a threat.

“Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” – Albert Einstein

What “same thing” do we see being repeated “over and over again and expecting different results”?

From freedom to fascism in a few easy steps

Politicians know this ruse well: If they want to put something illegal or immoral upon the people, they simply create names that convey something good and/or operate in secret to cover their chicanery.

The president and Congress have used this old ruse once again as they move forward the so-called free trade treaties, the Trans-Pacific Partnership and the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership. The treaties are so secretive that congressweasels had to sign nondisclosure statements to view them in secret rooms, and they cannot discuss specifics or take notes of the treaties. Most of the congressweasels did not even bother to read the treaties before voting for them, but they tell us they are for our own good.

So here we have Congress legislating away American sovereignty through stealth and deception, aided and abetted by the distractive clamor over a Confederate battle flag flying in South Carolina.

And over there we have new calls for gun control under the guise of “bipartisanship” from Sens. Pat Toomey and Joe Manchin following the shooting of nine Christians worshiping in a church. Never mind that the shooter, a deranged, bigoted, drug-addled psychopath broke no fewer than 10 laws in the process of committing his heinous crime. The elites tell us another gun law would have certainly stopped him in his tracks, and removing the flag aforetime would have certainly ended his bigoted notions.

Next we have, the Supreme Court assaulting religious liberty and the historical tradition of marriage with a power-usurping ruling legalizing so-called “gay marriage.”

Propaganda is distortion to promote illegitimate government designs or to promote usury commerce. Behind every propaganda message, there is the transfer of wealth and power to the corporate state. The propaganda covers the slide toward fascism. In fascism, as in America today, commerce and government overlap.

We have come from freedom to fascism in America in just over 200 years and done so without a shot being fired.

How has this been accomplished? It is simple. I first wrote the steps to take us from freedom to fascism for the Personal Liberty reader back in 2010. In light of current events, it’s time to repeat it… with some additions.

It’s accomplished over time — using gradualism — even if it’s accomplished long after those who set it in motion are dead and gone. Here’s how:

  • Change the monetary system to fiat, i.e., paper money.
  • Transfer wealth with fiat to the state via inflation and depreciation of the currency. Have a graduated income tax and a vast despotic bureaucracy to collect it.
  • Create wars.
  • Keep race stirred up with class warfare.
  • Destroy the family — put the wife to work.
  • Promote homosexuality. Glorify it.
  • Create government schools under the name of free public education. Dumb the people down so they can’t think. Teach them pseudo-history.
  • Unisex and/or transgender.
  • Promote “brotherly love” — altruism.
  • Denigrate women.
  • Feminize men and boys.
  • Glorify sex, promote perversion.
  • Hold on to and maintain all the historic freedom-sounding names like Constitution, privacy rights, private property, American flag, voting rights, democracy, elected representatives, free press, etc.
  • Use very elite and refined propaganda to sway the public on all issues.
  • Keep the public ignorant on gold (real money). Erase it from memory.
  • Gun control through gradualism. Cultivate the public to fear guns by promoting the idea that guns are dangerous. Inflate gun accidents and gun incidents on nationwide media. Sensationalize the negative.
  • Keep the trusted gang in power no matter who is president.
  • Manipulate government statistics.
  • Govern through crisis. Ram bills through under the guise of “emergency.”
  • Promote peace and manufacture arms for export. Be the world’s No. 1 arms manufacturer and dealer.
  • Harass people with “foreign bank accounts” while having the largest tax haven in the world with and through U.S. banks within the U.S.
  • Enslave the world with fiat euphemistically called a reserve currency. Don’t allow the gold standard anywhere in the world.
  • Call it private property but have perpetual and increasing property taxes.
  • Confuse the terms liberal, conservative, socialist, communist, fascist, democrat, republican.
  • Give the vote to noncitizens.
  • Keep the populace unhealthy. Push drugs as “cures” and deny natural alternatives.
  • Promise more free “stuff” to be paid for through theft of wealthy.

“But, Bob,” you say, “America is free. It is a democracy. We vote in our ‘leaders.’ There are no jackboots and no Gestapo.”

In America we have benevolent totalitarianism. This is a term that we created to describe the modern system of government that is fascism in all but name. It is all hidden under that loving word “democracy.” This is a political lock with an iron grip on the minds of the population.

Any political, economic, or military alchemy or chicanery is hidden behind the word “democracy.” This is a major, major key to understanding reality today.

Germany had the overt symbols of tyranny and the transfer of the democratic process to the police state. There was the jackboot authority shrouded with the occult swastika. It was despotism in full regalia. Institutional life took on militarism and the harsh discipline of a police state.

America still has all the symbols of liberty and all the trappings of human freedom. It is totalitarianism made palatable with a democratic aura.

So what is the difference between ugly and obvious Nazi fascism and modern fascism under the pretense of democracy? Modern fascism is hidden and twisted under an aura of benevolence.

After all, the modern propagandists have learned volumes since Nazi fascism. The modern police state does everything possible to make modern fascism palatable. It is being refined every minute of every day.

Which flag represents the greatest tyranny?

A concerted effort is afoot to remove all vestiges of Southern heritage from existence.

The perpetually offended, their propagandists on the left and their political correctness enablers, hangers on and bandwagon jumpers have gone apoplectic over the battle flag of the Army of Northern Virginia, aka the Confederate battle flag, since a psychopathic, drug-addled bigot blew away a group of black Christians in a church and drove away in a car sporting a tag bearing three Confederate flags.

The perpetually offended crowd — the statists, leftists, white apologists, their propagandists and the ignorant suffering under years of historical revisionism and public (non)education — call the Confederate battle flag racist. But a flag is not a sentient being and cannot, therefore, see, know or understand race or racial differences (or anything else). It is, therefore, not racist.

But is it a symbol of racism? Hardly. The war that is euphemistically called the Civil War but is in fact the War of Northern Aggression or the War to Prevent Separation was not solely about slavery. In fact, the highly revered but despotic Abraham Lincoln said as much in a letter to Horace Greeley on Aug. 22, 1862 in which he wrote:

My paramount object in this struggle is to save the Union, and is not either to save or to destroy slavery. If I could save the Union without freeing any slave I would do it, and if I could save it by freeing all the slaves I would do it; and if I could save it by freeing some and leaving others alone I would also do that. What I do about slavery, and the colored race, I do because I believe it helps to save the Union; and what I forbear, I forbear because I do not believe it would help to save the Union.

The slave-holding border states of Delaware, Maryland, Kentucky and Missouri did not secede but kept their slaves through the war. The Union Army never attacked Delaware, Maryland, Kentucky and Missouri. Virginia did not secede until after Fort Sumter and did not attack any Northern state, yet the Union Army of Northeast Virginia (what would become the Army of the Potomac) marched from Washington, D.C. into Virginia in July of 1861 with designs on attacking Richmond, only to be repulsed at Bull Run.

The Confederate battle flag — which the perpetually offended crowd views as a symbol of racism — was carried onto Virginia battlefields by young men who did not own slaves but were fighting to push back an invader of their state.

As Clyde Wilson, professor emeritus of the University of South Carolina wrote:

The most basic simple fact about the War is that it was a war of invasion and conquest. Once you get clear on this basic fact, everything else falls into place. This is no secret. It is plain in the record. The rulers of the North openly declared that it was a war of conquest, to crush and punish disobedience to government, to create a powerful centralised (sic) state, and to keep the South as a captive source of wealth for Northern business and politicians. Lincoln’s pretty words about saving government of, by, and for the people are window dressing and the exact opposite of the truth. This is not preserving the Union. It is using war to turn the Union into something else that it was not meant to be.

The U.S. government, under the control of a minority party, launched a massive invasion of the South. They destroyed the democratic, legitimate, elected governments of fourteen States, killed as many of our forefathers as they could, deprived them of their citizenship, subjected them to military occupation, and did many other things that no American, North or South, could previously have imagined were possible.

Though they had four times our resources, they were not able to defeat our men, so the U.S. government launched an unprecedentedly brutal war of terrorism again Southern women and children, white and black. The war was so unpopular in the North that thousands of people were imprisoned by the army without due process, elections were conducted at bayonet point, and they had to import 300,000 foreigners to fill up the army.

During the 14-year civil rights struggle of the 1950s and 1960s, did some people use the Confederate battle flag as a symbol of racism of hate and do some continue to? Yes, but Klansmen, racists and those of their ilk carried as many American flags as Confederate battle flags.

But from the nation’s founding, the Stars and Stripes flew over an America that tolerated slavery. That’s a period from 1776 until 1865. During the Civil War, Union troops under the Stars and Stripes abused, left destitute and killed Southerners — including women and children — and destroyed their crops, livestock and property in Lincoln’s total war under Gens. Ulysses Grant and William Sherman.

Following the war, agents of provisional governments established under the authority of Congress plundered and abused Southerners, white and black alike.

Then, U.S. Army troops operating underneath the Stars and Stripes slaughtered tens of thousands of American Indians (simply because they were Indians), drove them into the ground on the Trail of Tears, massacred them — women and children alike — and locked them onto reservations.

In World War II, airplanes with the Stars and Stripes emblazoned on their sides and wings firebombed the city of Dresden, Germany, four times, burning to death some 25,000 civilians. U.S. aircraft later dropped two atomic weapons on Japan, which incinerated or radiation poisoned to death at least 129,000 Japanese.

Even today, drones and aircraft operating under U.S. command are bombing and killing brown civilians in the Middle East and Africa.

So which flag is more a symbol of oppression and racism?

But the perpetually offended crowd is not content with just eliminating the Confederate battle flag from history. They have gone after all vestiges of Southern heritage. Not stopping with the Confederate Battle flag, they are also targeting all statues of and monuments to Civil War heroes and battles.

Will they stop there? Or is their next target the race-owning slave holders? The Jefferson Memorial has been brought up as a target. What about the Washington Monument? Are they likewise going to erase the names of slave-holding Declaration of Independence signers as well?

Don’t be deceived. This purge is not about racism — perceived or real. The races hucksters and the elites who sow division and profit from it were confounded that rather than Charleston being torn apart and becoming another Ferguson or Baltimore by the actions of a racist murderer, the city came together. White and black — led by the Christian family members of those shot down in cold blood who offered up forgiveness for the shooter rather than hatred — were all equally appalled and equally offended by the actions and equally sympathetic to the victims.

So the elites and the race hucksters who profit off division needed something else with which to drive a wedge between the races. The flag was a convenient tool.

In the Middle East, ISIS is destroying history and historical artifacts with explosives. The Taliban did the same thing in Afghanistan.

In America, history and historical artifacts are being destroyed with political correctness and pseudo-history. Whether it is burning books or destroying historical artifacts, fascist regimes throughout history have sought to erase heritage and the history of liberty in order to ease the transition into totalitarianism.

Nothing is more dreaded than the national government meddling with religion

On Monday, if conventional wisdom holds, the Supreme Court will usurp its authority once again and legislate from the bench — overturning the will of the people in a number of states — and rule that homosexuals can “marry” and that everyone must accept and participate in said “marriages,” regardless of their religious convictions.

Such a ruling will, of course, destroy the final remaining vestiges of religious liberty in America. So as a reminder of a bygone age when liberty still reigned, here are a few quotes on religious liberty from the founders:

  • “Nothing is more dreaded than the national government meddling with religion.” — John Adams in a letter to Benjamin Rush
  • “[T]hat the opinions of men are not the object of civil government, nor under its jurisdiction; that to suffer the civil magistrate to intrude his powers into the field of opinion and to restrain the profession or propagation of principles on supposition of their ill tendency is a dangerous falacy, (sic) which at once destroys all religious liberty.” — Thomas Jefferson, A Bill for Establishing Religious Freedom
  • “Because we hold it for a fundamental and undeniable truth, ‘that Religion or the duty which we owe to our Creator and the manner of discharging it, can be directed only be reason and convection, not by force or violence.’ The Religion then of every man must be left to the conviction and conscience of every man: and it is the right of every man to exercise it as these may dictate.” — James Madison, “A Memorial and Remonstrance”
  • “That religion, or the duty which we owe to our Creator, and the manner of discharging it, can be directed only by reason and conviction, not by force or violence; and therefore all men are equally entitled to the free exercise of religion, according to the dictates of conscience; and that it is the mutual duty of all to practice Christian forbearance, love, and charity towards each other.” — Patrick Henry, Virginia Declaration of Rights, Article 16 (adopted June 12, 1776)

Our best hope is that the Supreme Court will rule in a similar fashion to its ruling in U.S. v. Windsor (Defense of Marriage Act case) that the states, not the federal government, had authority over marriage. From the majority opinion:

“[T]he states, at the time of the adoption of the Constitution, possessed full power over the subject of marriage and divorce . . . [and] the Constitution delegated no authority to the Government of the United States on the subject of marriage and divorce.” Haddock v. Haddock, 201 U. S. 562, 575 (1906); see also In re Burrus, 136 U. S. 586, 593–594 (1890) (“The whole subject of the domestic relations of husband and wife, parent and child, belongs to the laws of the States and not to the laws of the United States”) … The significance of state responsibilities for the definition and regulation of marriage dates to the Nation’s beginning; for “when the Constitution was adopted the common understanding was that the domestic relations of husband and wife and parent and child were matters reserved to the States.” Ohio ex rel. Popovici v. Agler, 280 U. S. 379, 383–384 (1930).”

And in another ruling:

“All governments possess inherent power over the marriage relation, its formation and dissolution, as regards their own citizens, and where a court or legislature of a state has acted conformably with its own laws concerning the marriage tie as to a citizen of that state, its action is binding in that state as to that citizen, and its validity under the due process clause of the Constitution may not therein be questioned.” Maynard v. Hill, 125 U. S. 190.

Iodine deficiency linked to cancers and thyroid disorders

In his blog entry on June 7, Dr. David Brownstein notes a link between breast cancer (afflicting 14 percent of U.S. women), thyroid disorders (afflicting 10 percent to 40 percent of U.S. adults) and iodine deficiency.

All of the human body’s cells require iodine, but U.S. iodine levels have fallen more than 50 percent during the past 40 years. Dr. Brownstein’s practice has tested more than 6,000 patients and found that more than 9 in 10 are iodine deficient.

Dr. Brownstein writes that iodine deficiency is behind an epidemic of thyroid and breast disorders being observed today. These include autoimmune thyroid disorders such as Hashimoto’s disease, Graves’ disease, thyroid cancer and hypothyroidism, as well as fibrocystic breast disease and breast cancer. And the link could also explain the rise of other glandular diseases in the ovaries, uterus, pancreas and prostate — including cancer.

Unfortunately, most U.S. doctors don’t regularly test for iodine deficiency even though it should be the first suspect if one is experiencing fatigue, depression, weight gain, memory loss, hair loss, muscle cramps, dry skin, decreased libido, cold feet, confusion, delirium or even heart failure.

Chances are that most of us have an iodine deficiency. I think that we can assume this because iodine is generally low in agriculture soils everywhere. It can be found in seafood, but its levels vary depending upon the amount of pollution in the oceans from which the seafood is harvested.

You should insist on an iodine loading test — especially if you are experiencing the symptoms above. And if your physician refuses or does not know what it is, you should find an iodine-knowledgeable healthcare provider who can test you both pre- and post-iodine supplementation and help you maintain proper levels.

A revealing D.C. oops moment

To: Personal Liberty customer service
Subject: Another question

I don’t have Bob Livingston or Paul Cambone’s personal email, so I would appreciate if you would forward this note to them. They know me…

I think there is another area thinking Republicans need to probe. There are a surprising number of my Republican friends… and I am one of them… that if we put up one of the wingnuts or someone inexperienced, we will easily vote for Hillary. Several years ago, I would have never thought those words would come out of my mouth. She as Secretary of State earned many people’s respect. Despite the Benghazi issue… frankly watching that day, she ate the Republican panels alive, and we gave her tons of great air time to look professional while we looked partisan.

How would a question on the newsletter survey have read, if your Republican candidate isn’t the party’s choice or someone you don’t support, would you vote for Hillary Clinton?

I think we as Republicans might be surprised at the depth of her support or at least the concern for some of the extremists around the party. Bob knows I’ve live the R life professionally and personally for many years. I think there are many of us that think this party is losing its mind. We did better in taking it back in the last Congressional election, but we have a ways to go to sanity and governance.

Just a thought…

Amy H.,
Washington consulting firm (name withheld)

Dear Amy H.,

You have made a grievous error. I do not know you and I am not the adulterous former congressweasel from Louisiana who is currently enriching himself by plundering the national treasury on behalf of corporatist and Muslim interests. Nor do I, as you might guess, hold him or his partner, Cambon, in any regard.

Your comment, though, is quite revelatory: To wit, that everyone in the District of Criminals is drinking from the same polluted fountain of insular group think. Your, and the rest of the D.C. GOP establishment’s, acceptance, if not downright worship, of Hillary Clinton over so-called “wingnuts” who are “inexperienced” and your disdain for liberty and the people in flyover country demonstrate just how far down the rabbit hole you and your ilk have gone – and why you are losing and will continue to lose presidential elections and the loyalty of the rank-and-file.

The American system was not one set up for royalty or professional politicians. The Founders would be horrified at the notion that one must be an “experienced” politician in order to be deemed qualified for office, that there are people like you and the other Bob Livingston who earn substantial livings parasiting off of government (i.e., the people), and that you and your ilk consider those you plunder who advocate for smaller, more Constitutionally-driven governance as “wing nuts.”

I can assure you that many of the great unwashed masses out here in the hinterlands – those who support those you deem “wing nuts” — know that the party has lost its mind and you and Livingston and your fellow fascists are the problem. Or more accurately, they are finally awakening to the fact that the establishment for which you advocate is selling them out for power, prestige and the almighty dollar.

That you might support Hillary Clinton over one of the statist big government Republicans currently seeking the nomination, that you think Clinton “earned people’s respect” during her failed tenure as Secretary of State and “looked professional” in the Benghazi hearings in which she proclaimed “at this point what difference does it make?” while lying and concealing emails and evidence from the investigative committees; is concrete evidence that the Republican establishment cares not for the Constitution or the people but only for ensuring its gravy trains run unchecked and protecting its interests and fellow psychopathic D.C.-ites, and you have no concept of or empathy for the people’s wishes. And you and the GOP elites wonder why conservative voters stay home on Election Day?

Thank you for the poll idea. I can assure you that no more than 2 or 3 percent of the Personal Liberty audience would “vote for Hillary” regardless of the GOP nominee, and that few if any of those who would would consider themselves “Republicans” or conservatives. But most of all, thank you for this little insight into the establishment’s mindset. I have been telling my readers about this for many years, but your mistaken missive puts it into a whole new light for readers having trouble shaking the false left/right paradigm.

Best wishes from a “wing nut” but not fellow Republican,
Bob

Dollar versus gold: Which is true wealth?

Everybody wants it the world over. We live and die for it. Our forefathers trusted it as we do. It is like a universal religion. It symbolizes wealth and prestige.

But it is a figment of the imagination — it is a fake, a phony and a myth created by the silent rulers of the world. It’s the biggest lie never told!

What is it? It’s the U.S. dollar. And its modern alchemist is the United States Federal Reserve — a private money cartel.

It creates wealth for some and steals wealth from the masses. Everybody feels good when they think about it and when they believe that they have it.

Politicians and government bureaucrats lie, cheat and steal for it. World wars are fought and millions die for it.

Men, women and children jealously possess it. Millions deny themselves for it and millions hoard it. They believe in their hearts that it is the “real thing.” It is true love in the natural world but condemned in the spiritual world. It brings tribulation to men’s souls.

It was created in the minds of ancient alchemists to turn sand into gold. It has fooled wise men and fools alike for hundreds of years. It is a promise of nothing, a mental fiction.

Men trust it as a store of wealth and the passing of inheritances. Its secret has been revealed by esoteric sages, but it has such narcotic soothing that it blinds the mind and causes euphoric false confidence.

It has the madness and insanity of love. It rules reason, doubt and faith. It symbolizes comfort, material wealth and security.

Modern tyrants only need to print money and call it democracy to rule the world and men’s thoughts. From the modern bankster dictionary the words “deficits,” “budgets” and “national debt” are all euphemisms to camouflage the illegitimate system as legitimate accounting. The words are powerful and set in the national psyche. They are key words to hide the printing of money and the constant and ever growing transfer of wealth to the inner elite and their loyal supporters.

The widespread presumption is that the highly advertised Federal Reserve printing of money has been to bail out a sinking economy. The truth is that the volume of money is in direct relation to the amount of theft of what’s left of America. It is total war against the American people. It is psychological economic warfare with the intent to cover the massive transfer of wealth. Modern money (dollars/credit) confiscates wealth!

Dollar diplomacy requires a triangle of power — the printing press, the military and the IRS.

What are the insiders doing with their phony money? They are exchanging it for gold, proving that their alchemy does work.

Texas has asked for theirs back. So have Germany and the Netherlands. China is hoarding it. So are India, the Netherlands, Japan, Switzerland, Russia, France, Italy and Germany. From the World Gold Council’s Gold Demand Trends Q1 2015 report, “Central banks and other official institutions continued their buying momentum… The primary driver of this accumulation of gold reserves continues to be diversification. Many central banks remain exposed to a small number of key reserve currencies and look to gold as a hedge against volatile currency movements.

“Russia’s appetite for gold remains healthy. After a relatively quiet January and February, it re-entered the market with vigour (sic) in March. Net purchases over the quarter came to just over 30t, bringing total gold reserves to almost 1,240t. The supporting cast of other central banks who also reported gold purchases throughout the quarter were also familiar names: Kazakhstan (6.6t), Belarus (2.1t), Malaysia (1.2t) and Mauritius.”

They tell you not to buy gold; that it’s worthless. Yet they scarf it up. What do they know that you don’t?

Many tens of thousands of people who have their trust in the government system (U.S. currency) are headed dead ahead into impoverishment.

Why do we say this? The answer is because financial (U.S. dollar) assets are in a slow motion crash. A financial asset is any paper asset such as CDs, bank accounts, U.S. government bonds, etc. While we sleep, we are losing our savings. The U.S. stock market is in a QE-driven bubble that will soon burst.

Inflation or deflation are both forms of wealth destruction and impoverishment. Now think about this: The U.S. government has an official and stated policy of currency destruction through inflation. This is voluntary destruction of the currency. If instead we have deflation because of the collapse of debt, we still have currency destruction. Either way, wisdom dictates, get out of dollar assets ASAP!

Besides, the U.S. dollar and U.S. financial assets pay almost no interest; certainly not enough for the risk.

The Federal Reserve’s Janet Yellen just signaled officially what we all know to be true. No interest rate hike from the Fed because the economy is in the crapper. No interest means bank savings will continue to trail inflation. Money in the bank is a losing proposition.

Worse, it’s now official U.S. and world bank policy to take your money in the event of another collapse as we saw in 2008. They call it a “bail in.” That is a code word for “what’s yours is theirs.”

The Grecians – the more discerning of them at least — are getting their money out while they can.

“People are very concerned,” said the owner of a small company who asked not to be named. “I think those who could, have already transferred some money abroad. And lots of others have taken out a few thousand, enough to see them through any immediate crisis. I have.”

Sofia, who runs a boutique in one of Athens’ wealthier suburbs, said she and her husband had €15,000 in a safe in the garage, “just to be sure we’re not caught out.”

Elsewhere, an anonymous car concessionaire confessed to “getting into gold a little bit. Not much. But it’s safe, isn’t it? That’s what they say.”

About 2 billion euros had been withdrawn from Greek banks over the course of three days last week. That brings the total withdrawn to more than 30 billion euros since October.

Still others, far too many, actually, remain trapped in conventional wisdom. “I’m worried, sure, for my job, my kids, my future. But not about my money at the bank, said Nancy Parlakidi outside the Alpha Bank on Stadiou Street. “That’s the least of my worries right now. The bank’s the safest place for it.”

But as I write this, barring a last minute deal, Greek banks may not open today. And the banks are talking about imposing capital controls, stopping or limiting withdrawals and curbing transfers overseas.

The bank’s the safest place for it? Just ask the Cypriots how that worked out for them.

Real money, real wealth and long-term value is gold. Who will be the last to find out and only after they are cheated out? The people!

Note from the Editor: America is on the brink of the biggest money grab in history!

South Carolina church shooting the result of bad government policy

“Government policy claims 9 victims” should be the headline in South Carolina.

Nine people were slaughtered by a person who is either deranged or under mind-altering drugs (either voluntarily or coerced or forced for nefarious purposes). In South Carolina, churches are gun-free zones by law. Someone forgot to tell Dylann Roof.

A relative of the survivor claims Roof unloaded and reloaded his weapon at least five times and one of the murder victims tried to talk him out of the killing. Had just one of the victims been armed, Roof could have been disarmed or disabled.

Guns don’t kill people. Gun laws do.

The War of 1812

Edward Percy Moran’s 1910 depiction of the Battle of New Orleans.

On June 18, 1812, President James Madison signed into law the declaration of war against Great Britain and the War of 1812 began.

The idea of making war on Great Britain was not a particularly popular one in Congress. The declaration passed the House 79-49 and the Senate just 19-13. A number of New England States even discussed “separation,” the word of the day for secession, over the war and the later debt it caused.

At the time, Great Britain was, along with other European nations, attempting to beat back Napoleon’s designs on Europe, and had been for almost a decade. Both England and France were attempting to starve each other and were hindering, stopping, boarding and seizing the cargo of American ships attempting to trade with the two nations. But England went one step further: It was conscripting American sailors it claimed were deserters.

Under English law, anyone born in England was a British subject whether he claimed to be American or not. Some sources say British ships seized about 400 American merchant ships and as many as 6,000-10,000 sailors in the run-up to the war.

As British Foreign Secretary Lord Castlereagh said: “England was fighting the battle of the world, as well as for her own existence as an independent Nation, she required the service of all her subjects.”

But the war was about much more than that. In fact, Great Britain, not needing to open another front abroad while it was engaged in an epic struggle at home, promised to end the practice of conscription in order to avoid war and offered to release all sailors wrongly conscripted. Madison ignored British overtures.

A faction in Congress known as the “War Hawks” had been advocating for a war against Great Britain for several years in an effort to launch an invasion into Canada to expand American borders northward. The war would give them the pretense they needed and a three-pronged invasion of Canada was begun.

It was expected by many to be an easy venture. John C. Calhoun of South Carolina predicted it would take about four weeks. Thomas Jefferson wrote to a friend: “The acquisition of Canada this year, as far as the neighborhood of Quebec, will be a mere matter of marching, and will give us experience for the attack of Halifax the next, and the final expulsion of England from the American continent.”

But American forces were badly beaten, and America’s navy – though able to defeat the inferior British frigates sent to America in one-on-one encounters — proved insufficient to fend off a British invasion. British troops marauded up and down the eastern seaboard,  took Washington, D.C., burned the White House, the Capitol, and other government buildings in retaliation for the burning of several Canadian buildings by U.S. soldiers.

The British expanded the war into America’s interior by employing an amalgamation of American Indian tribes under the leadership of Shawnee War Chief Tecumseh. Although the Indians did not care for the British, they hated American settlers and their ongoing encroachments and treaty violations even more. For the Indians, it was an alliance of convenience. Indians engaged American forces in at least 40 significant engagements during the war, often fighting with either overt or covert British help.

The Michigan Territory fell into British hands and a November raid by Americans into Upper Canada was a disaster. British troops occupied Maine. New York City and Philadelphia were blockaded and British ships bottled up the Chesapeake and Delaware Bays.

By late in 1814, the U.S. economy was in the tank. Imports and exports had fallen dramatically and U.S. coffers were bled dry. On Nov. 19, 1814, the U.S. Treasury defaulted. Banks were facing failure and the government permitted them to suspend specie payments. Militias were beginning to rebel.

This occurred despite the fact that just two months prior, on Sept. 11, 1814, U.S. troops had achieved their most significant victory of the war when Master Commandant Thomas Macdonough destroyed a British squadron on Lake Champlain, forcing the British to abandon their siege of the U.S. fort at Plattsburg and retreat to Canada on foot; and when Francis Scott Key had on September 14 watched Fort McHenry withstand a British bombardment, for which he subsequently penned the words that are now set to music as the Star-Spangled Banner.

Those American victories dashed Great Britain’s hopes of gaining significant concessions from the U.S. in peace talks and the British sold out their Indian allies by dropping its insistence of the establishment of a buffer state between the U.S. and Indian territories.

Prime Minister Liverpool gave up trying to teach the Americans a lesson, saying: “We might certainly land in different parts of their coast, and destroy some of their towns, or put them under contribution; but in the present state of the public mind in America it would be in vain to expect any permanent good effects from operations of this nature.” And Liverpool also recognized a growing distaste of the war back home.

The Treaty of Ghent that ended the war was signed on Christmas Eve, 1814. Word of the treaty did not reach British and American troops in New Orleans in time to stave off the famed Battle of New Orleans that was won by American troops under the command of Major General Andrew Jackson from December 24 to January 8.

What Really Happened

 

 

A low tech way to beat high tech thermal vision-based systems

The American government views American citizens as the enemy. What else explains the massive surveillance, liberty-crushing laws, spying drones and aircraft and the arming of all Federal agencies – even the Department of Education, Department of Agriculture and the EPA – with weapons of war including automatic weapons?

There likely will come a time in the not-too-distant future when agents of the U.S. government will employ these weapons, and other very sophisticated hardware including thermal imaging drones and weapons, on Americans. In fact, one of main arguments for the anti-gun crowd is that Americans do not need guns because simply owning guns will not deter armed aggressions by the agents of the state because the government owns such sophisticated weaponry.

That, of course, denies historical evidence. Cave dwelling Taliban and al-Qaida fought the U.S. military to a standstill in Afghanistan employing little more than AK-47s and homemade improvised explosive devices (IEDs).

And there is a simple solution to defeating even the most sophisticated thermal imaging devices. It requires only readily available materials and a little ingenuity. It is very low tech.

Watch this video from our Brandon Smith to see how it’s done.

Hillary Clinton’s politics: Why U.S. support of Muslims in Kosovo instead of Christians?

(I wrote and published this in The Bob Livingston Letter in September 1999 during Bill Clinton’s illegal NATO war on Yugoslavia during the Kosovo War on behalf of the Muslims. It is once again pertinent in light of Hillary Clinton’s seemingly inevitable march to the Democratic Party nomination for president and her ongoing ties to the Muslim Brotherhood through her chief of staff — both in the 2008 election, during her time at the State Department, and in the current election: Huma Abedin. Abedin is the daughter of Saleha Mahmood Abedin who, along with the wife of former Egyptian President Mahammed Morsi, ran the women’s division of the Muslim Brotherhood. It explains the deep politics behind the Clintons’ ties to the New World Order.)

The following is a revelation of the direct tie-in of the Clinton administration and the New World Order. You are not supposed to get this translation. You will not hear it aired publicly. This is a peek into Bill and Hillary’s politics. It gives understanding and background.

Julia Duin of The Washington Times reports, “Muslims say Hillary Rodham Clinton is the most sympathetic First Lady on Islamic concerns to ever grace the White House.” (July 27, 1999, A4.) HRC and daughter Chelsea graced the cover of The Muslim Magazine last spring, both wearing hijabs, the traditional head covering dress of Muslim women. The Muslim Magazine is published by the Islamic Supreme Council of America, which is in secret occultic affiliation with well-known American secret societies.

HRC has called for Palestinian statehood, winning her even more Muslim accolades. Three years ago HRC opened up the White House for Eid el Fitr celebrations, including a Muslim feast, as part of the Islamic celebration of their “holy” month of Ramadan. The Muslim Magazine exalted, “The fact that the event took place within the walls of executive power is a seal of recognition of Islam in America.” Turnip-shaped minarets adorn multi-million dollar Muslim mosques, shrines, temples and schools in the U.S. In addition to the American temples of secret societies, they are springing up like weeds in virtually every American city.

In March, Mrs. Clinton was dispatched on an official U.S. diplomatic mission to three Islamic nations. She spoke in Cairo, praising Islam as a “religion of tolerance, of cohabitation, and not one of violence and extremism. It is a religion which defends human rights and honors the human being.” Lies, of course, but never has the First Lady had such effusive praise for Christianity, the religion of the West and supposedly the religion of her own Methodist faith. HRC’s words and actions reveal her fidelity to universalism, or the worldwide religion of man, known by several names and covers.

For his part, President Clinton has issued proclamations each year during Muslim high “holy” days, celebrating this Islamic power. You will recall that I quoted him in these pages several months ago in this regard, when Muslim “holy” men from all over the U.S. were welcomed into the White House to stand by their man and defend Clintonian (im)morality during the impeachment hearings. As Chronicles magazine noted, there is no separation of mosque and state with the Clintons.

Abe Hirschfeld’s newest endeavor for mass consumption, Talk magazine, has been all the media rage for its premier edition (September 1999), an interview with HRC by Lucinda Franks, in which HRC blames child abuse for Bill’s sexual predation. Talk also reveals what it calls the “spiritual intensity” of the First Lady. The lead paragraph of the report describes HRC standing barefoot, outside a mosque in Cairo, her head covered in Muslim fashion: “Quietly declining the slippers set aside for privileged visitors, she walks barefoot into the ancient mosque like a common Egyptian woman, her face turned away from the reporters and photographers.” Such humility. Such devotion to Allah!

What gives here? Why is the “liberal” Hillary Rodham Clinton sporting such “conservative” Muslim attire, which symbolizes alleged female subjection and inferiority in Islam? Why are the Clintons so outwardly supportive of a religion that makes cultural, religious and military/terroristic war on the Christian West? And what about those Muslim terrorists? There is evidence linking U.S. intelligence agents to the Muslim bombers of the World Trade Center — in fact, as their trainers and suppliers in bomb fusing and detonation. Also, the U.S. and NATO invaded a nominally Christian, Western nation (Serbia) on behalf of Muslim interests and the Muslim Kosovars. It is the first time the Christian West has turned its back on brethren and joined with the moorish hordes invading Europe. What goes on?

The Clinton religious and political agenda revealed in Islam is merely part of a general, gradual, revelation of the secret, universal religion of the New World Order. The occultic, Gnostic, Hermetic religion of the global elite is Oriental in origin but universal in its manifestation and effects, thanks to secret orders and societies and thanks to mass exoteric programming which shields the single religion with a confusing, array of seemingly separate faiths. Not one in a million can see it; those of you who can enjoy an insight, verge on a spiritual revelation.

On one hand, HRC can appear to be “conservative” while propagating Islam, and “liberal” when promoting Jewish interests. For example, consider that HRC just received the Henrietta Szold Award from Hadassah, the Women’s Zionist Organization of America, Inc. According to Shoshana Bryen of the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs (which nation?), “Mrs. Clinton has been exclusively in favor of more government control, larger government programs and the socialization of medicine.” Hadassah and HRC are both widely known for their vehement public protest in support of abortion — the murder of unborn children — which is surely a crime under the moral law of the true Christian religion. HRC’s and Wild Bill’s platform is, therefore, easily recognized as that of the New World Order. It is the political platform spawned from occult beliefs.

On a practical basis, HRC’s reward is 1.6 million Jewish and 800,000 Muslim votes in New York, should she run for the U.S. Senate.

Is anybody watching? She has an equal appeal to Muslims and Jews. She has learned well her husband’s political strategy of “triangulation,” which itself is an occult formula derived from occult Kabbalic alchemy and iconography (the triangle being a symbol of phallic worship and power, as well as the modern symbol of sodomite revolution). It is no coincidence that the Skull and Bones Order initiate, Texas Governor George W. Bush, has also adopted this “triangulation” strategy to gather unprecedented Establishment and popular support for his candidacy for president. Bill, Hillary and “W.” as he is fondly called by the CFR-dominated media try to be all things to all people. “Diversity” is their mantra for the masses.

Triangulation is universalism. In politics this is the art of appealing to all ethnic groups, classes and races. The idea is to get the political support of all factions as the most direct route to winning an election and political power. There is no moral commitment to anybody or any thing except to Satan who controls the world system. This is why the only certainty about politics is deception. Bill and Hillary get the highest awards for immorality by Christian standards.

The masses have been deceived about religion as much as they have about politics, and probably more. Religion underpins the actions of all men, including the “wise men” of the Gnostic, occultic New World Order.

Gnosticism is the rule of the “knowing” global elite. Secret societies in the West unite seemingly opposing religious factions by the means of universalism. Yes, sure, this fact is as unacceptable to the programmed, propagandized masses as is the fact of political control through two seemingly opposite but unified parties. Only the naïve and controlled masses accept religious and political propaganda at face value.

The file of documentation proving the anti-Christian, anti-American communism and globalism of the Clintons, going back to their school days, is thick. In what is the most under-reported story of the year, we know, too, all about the Clinton administration’s subsequent high crimes and misdemeanors against the American people and nation, including treason for Red Chinese campaign cash, according to the testimony of Johnny Chung. The fact that Americans continue to accept the Clinton crime wave, refusing to hold him and HRC to account, is reason enough why the Clintons can now reveal their religious motivations, also with impunity. By revealing who and what they are during today’s reign of multiculturalism, the Clintons can lead the way as the New World Order begins recruiting Islamicized soldiers and citizens for total war on the American Christian tradition.

Americans no longer care about their own country, which is why it is theirs no longer. America is now the nation of the universalists. America has been pluralized, diversified and Orientalized. Because no one cares and because nothing will be done, the global power has decreed that it can now be revealed to the masses that America is the nation of Islam. It is the most under-reported story of the century.

The benefits of healthy gut bacteria

We are so used to drugs that we have quit thinking about what we are doing to ourselves. Drugs are foreign to the body and natural health. Drugs don’t cure anything. They only mask symptoms. Even if there is a palliative effect (like antibiotics against infections), there is almost always a long-term, devastating effect.

The late Robert Mendelsohn, M.D., for many years an associate professor of medicine at the University of Illinois College of Medicine, had this to say in his book “Confessions of a Medical Heretic”:

Penicillin and other antibiotics do not shorten the course of the disease, do not prevent complications and do not reduce the number of pathogenic organisms in the nose and throat. They do no good at all.

Yet Americans with common infections — even viral ones on which antibiotics have no effect at all — are quick to ask for an antibiotic and doctors are equally quick to prescribe one. This is creating drug-resistant bacteria and may be increasing cancer rates.

Drug resistance has been documented for many microbes, and so it has become a race between the ingenuity of man in developing new drugs and the ingenuity of the microbes in achieving methods of survival.

But these new drugs are having a devastating effect on Americans’ health. That’s because antibiotics don’t differentiate between good bacteria and bad bacteria. Antibiotics kill them all.

New research suggests that antibiotic use may also be contributing to the onset of some cancers, which researchers are hypothesizing may in fact be bacteria-related diseases. One of these is colon cancer.

Healthy and plentiful gut bacteria are crucial to digestion and elimination and, therefore, good health. But colon cancer patients are found to have significant changes — or an imbalance — in their intestinal bacteria. Researchers are now trying to determine whether this imbalance, called dysbiosis, is a cause or symptom of the cancer.

What is known is that dysbiosis is caused by such factors as antibiotic exposure, abuse of alcohol and an unhealthy diet. And since digestion is affected by dysbiosis, a cascade effect of reduced nutrition and less good-bacteria production begins.

You can increase your gut bacteria with a good probiotic supplement. You can also eat foods like raw kefir, kimchee, miso, pickles and sauerkraut, etc., and drink whole buttermilk — all of which are rich in probiotics.

Scientific research shows that as much as 80 percent of the immune system resides in your digestive tract. Keep it healthy to stay healthy.

And by the way, a link has been established between dysbiosis and breast cancer as well.

The war on cash

He who possesses the currency of the realm is suspect. Having cash or asking for cash money (currency) at your local bank can get you investigated or arrested. Just ask Dennis Hastert.

The authorities can seize your bank account and your assets. They can seize your real and personal property. And they don’t even need to charge you with a crime, much less gain a conviction first.

Of course the excuse for the ongoing restriction of personal privacy and personal liberty is always crime. The government promotes crime and then uses crime to restrict your liberty. Government oppression under the color of law is to reduce the freedom of honest citizens. Criminals and crooks pay no attention to laws. Any child knows this.

Cash money offers a certain privacy and freedom of movement and choice. The underground economy operates on cash and barter. This puts it out of reach of bureaucrats and non-producing government parasites who want to live off of your labor. That draws the ire of the state. It can’t abide those who attempt to operate outside the system.

Cash also creates a problem for the money printers and government men who are continually trying to find a way to prop up the system. Should we enter another recession (in reality we have never escaped the last one, it is merely being papered over with food stamps and phony employment numbers), with interest rates already at near zero, the Federal Reserve has few if any bullets left to fire while still maintaining any legitimacy of a rational system.

With interest rates so low and the banking system on less than sound footing and revealing a disdain for its customers through announcements of potential “bail-ins,” a tax on deposits and currency transaction reports (CTRs) and suspicious activity reports (SARs), people are showing a tendency to hold their cash rather than put it into the banking system.

People holding their cash prevents the banksters from using that money as reserves to further increase the money supply. It also prevents the Federal Reserve from using negative interest rates to further prop up the system by printing even more money.

Last year, Harvard economics professor Kenneth Rogoff wrote for Financial Times that the time has come to get rid of physical currency and replace it with electronic money. Rogoff acknowledged that the central banks are hamstrung by common sense. Should interest rates be moved into negative territory to prop up the system, the people will in greater amounts hold their money in their possession.

Additionally, Rogoff writes, “[P]hasing out currency would address the concern that a significant fraction, particularly of large-denomination notes, appears to be used to facilitate tax evasion and illegal activity.”

The idea is becoming more mainstream by the day. A noted economist at Citi Bank has jumped on the bandwagon. Willem Buiter told Bloomberg in April that a cashless society would save the world’s economy.

He proposes that to give the Federal Reserve free range to electronically print (create) more money to “save” the system that government should:

  1. Abolish currency.
  2. Tax currency.
  3. Remove the fixed exchange rate between currency and central bank reserves/deposits.

Governments around the world have been waging a war on cash for several years. Scandinavia, Sweden, France and Germany either have or are all taking steps to crack down on cash transactions and cash deposits and withdrawals. The limits of these are slowly being reduced as if a boa constictor was tightening its grip on its prey.

The official excuse in all these cases is to reduce crime, reduce tax fraud, fight terrorism and create money. The goal is less liberty and more currency depreciation.

Currency depreciation is a ploy governments have used for millennia. Why do evil men steal through currency depreciation? Because of its huge, ongoing income flow that goes to government over and above all taxes. Taxes have the implied legality of law and consent of the people. Currency depreciation is not allotted the parameters of legality or illegality. It is above the law and is almost never debated in the monetary realm.

Currency depreciation is seductively covert when a regime is relatively stable. But when a government becomes unstable (as the U.S. today), depreciation of the currency becomes more overt until collapse.

The American financial system – like the world’s – is on life support. Inventories are stacking up because the people are not buying and in most cases cannot afford to buy. This is setting up a great deflationary collapse.

But this could be staved off, according to one Bloomberg columnist, by a QE for the people. In other words, what the world needs is a helicopter drop of money, not on the banksters, as last time, but on the people.

“The logic is simple,” writes Clive Crook. “If central banks need to expand demand — and interest rates can’t be cut any further — let them send a check to every citizen. Much of this money would be spent, boosting demand just as (Milton) Friedman said. What, then, is the objection?”

The objection, of course, is that this method of staving off a deflationary collapse will create an inflationary collapse.

A deflationary collapse would be a total loss of confidence and most probably a collapse of the government and the system. On the other hand, a collapse of the currency because of excessive money creation leads to an inflationary depression.

So what’s the difference? The result is, none!

In deflation there’s no money. In an inflationary depression, there is plenty of money but it’s worthless as in the Weimar Republic. So no matter how big the numbers on the paper money become, goods and services become out of reach because the prices are too high.

In both instances of deflation or inflation, impoverishment of the savers and retirees is the result except for those few foresighted enough to exchange their paper money early to gold and silver, and the important commodities of self-sustainment, food, water and lead. In fact, storing food and water purchased before the hyperinflation begins is one of the greatest investments of all.

It’s human nature to cling to the system that one grows up in. We have to go against our emotional fix to make fundamental changes. But it is a difficult transition due to the people’s ignorance of the history of paper currencies and an ignorance of the greedy nature of governments and their politicians. All this mix clouds the people’s perception of current events as well as the economic chaos that is building.

What is the U.S. government trying to do? There is no doubt about it; the U.S. government simply cannot afford deflation as deflation would almost instantly bankrupt the system.

The authorities really believe that they can solve any problem by increasing the supply of money. And up to a point, it appears to succeed until there is a loss of confidence in money and accelerating inflation.

Huge amounts of “new money” spills into some area of the economy and right now we see that the huge production of “new money” sent into the hands of the banksters has brought back a stock market bubble and has begun re-inflating the housing bubble. This has further enriched the 1 percent and destroyed the middle class. Really, what we have now is a bear market rally which is a prelude to a collapse of stock prices in the weeks or months ahead.

In light of the certainty of wild inflation or deflation, my advice is to own gold and silver coins and prepare for the coming chaos with stored food, water and plenty of ammunition for your weapons.

The American system is a con and a fraud

I have been writing for years there are two “parties” in America: the government party and the people. It seems some people are finally awaking to that fact.

The greedy psychopaths inhabiting the District of Criminals are feeling so emboldened these days they no longer care who knows. They’re so “bipartisan” now they’re even parroting one another.

On Wednesday, during a congressional hearing discussing the secrecy behind the Obamatrade deal that will destroy the last vestiges of American sovereignty and create a North American Union controlled completely by the oligarchs, chief Obamatrade cheerleader and Chamber of Commerce lackey Paul Ryan told Americans — in so many words — we have to pass the Obamatrade bill to see what’s in it.

That is, of course reminiscent, of a line made famous by former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi back in 2009. Pelosi’s quote referred to the Obamacare bill — deceptively named the Affordable Care Act — when she said: “We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what’s in it.” We have since “found out.” And only the political class, the medical industrial complex and society’s leeches are pleased with it.

The only difference between Obamacare and Obamatrade is that we saw firsthand who was behind Obamacare and knew what their agenda was. The outcome was predictable and predicted. The Obamatrade — touted as a “free trade” — deal is so secretive that even congressweasels have to take an oath of secrecy to view the document, and even then some cannot. It’s locked away in a secret room. What we know about it at all is a credit to the hackers at Wikileaks.

The elected class and their operatives care not for anyone but themselves. Any pretense at advocating or legislating on the people’s behalf is either an out-and-out con or a divide-and-conquer strategy designed to grow their power and steal more liberty. Their “principles” involve growing government, lining their pockets and enriching their corporatist masters. They will sell out their former friends and constituents (and even their mothers) in a heartbeat.

Former presidential spokespuppet Robert Gibbs has just joined that “evil,” “non-living-wage-paying” corporate behemoth McDonald’s as global communications officer. This is the same Gibbs who once said: “I think the minimum wage will be the centerpiece of the State of Union. I think it should be the centerpiece of the State of the Union. And it should be very focused on that because, as you said, Republicans in the rest of the country are for it.” I wonder if McDonald’s is paying Gibbs a “living wage,” whatever that is.

He joins another former spokespuppet, Jay Carney, and former Barack Obama political operative David Plouffe in the “evil” corporate world. Carney is now VP of Worldwide Corporate Affairs for Amazon. Plouffe is a senior VP at Uber. And despite Obama’s having allegedly signed an order that “closes the revolving door that allows government officials to move to and from private sector jobs in ways that give that sector undue influence over government” when he took office, Obama operatives Anita Dunn and Bill Burton moved from their White House offices into the new, plush digs at the lobbying firm SKDKnickerbocker, which has worked to oppose several items on Obama’s stated agenda.

This revolving door for Obama operatives between the White House and corporate world has shaken up one prominent leftist so much it’s caused her to rethink what it means to be a Democrat. In a series of tweets, San Francisco reporter Julia Carrie Wong said: “It’s hard to think of a political identity with *less* actual meaning than being a Democrat these days. As a proud Democrat, Gibbs will devote his time to fighting wage increases, harming the environment, and preying on poor communities. His brother in arms Plouffe will focus on the core Democratic values of deregulation and obviating the National Labor Relations Act.”

Republican voters are well-versed in having the party’s elite slap them around. And the GOP’s revolving door between government and K Street has a long and storied history. But like a battered spouse, Republican voters always take them back.

After all, what’s a voter to do? That’s a question that inevitably comes to every article pointing out there is no difference between the parties.

The answer — though apparently unacceptable to the masses — is simple. Don’t vote. It only gives legitimacy to the process and allows them to keep up the charade another four years. If everyone sits out the election, the elites can no longer run the con that we have a representative government.

Advancing deviancy advances collectivism

Following a week or more of in-your-face coverage of Bruce Jenner’s posing as a woman on a magazine cover and exposing his psychological problems to the world, the Occupation Safety and Health Administration has issued a four-page guideline for employers to provide transgender-friendly restroom facilities. Coincidence? I think not.

The mainstream media glorified Jenner for his “courage.” ESPN, one of the leading proponents of perversion today, picked Jenner as its recipient of this year’s Arthur Ashe Courage Award to be presented at the ESPY Awards in July. This was too much for even Bob Costas to stomach.

The OSHA guidelines, while not yet binding but likely soon will be (especially once the Supreme Court OKs gay “marriage”), will require employers to ensure restrooms are accessible to people according to their “inner gender” as opposed to their natural plumbing. But assigning gender-confused people their own restroom is not acceptable to the agency. Among the best policies, OSHA writes, are for the employer to provide “additional options, which employees may choose, but are not required to use” include:

  • Single-occupancy gender-neutral (unisex) facilities; and
  • Use of multiple-occupant, gender-neutral restroom facilities with lockable single occupant stalls.

So “Men” and “Women” on the restroom doors no longer will have meaning and, under the guidelines, will likely just be removed. And that man ogling your wife or daughter can follow them into the restroom with no questions asked.

A New World Order in social evolution has emerged over the past couple of decades, and it’s not the world your granddad knew.

How has the American nation fallen so far that a growing number of the masses and almost all the politicians not only accept but endorse the sodomites and “gender-confused” and all the sick things they do? The answer is: tolerance. The politicians and the propaganda machine have taught Americans to tolerate everything except that which is godly.

Fyodor Dostoevsky warned that without God, all bad things are possible.

Note that all major religions focus on “tolerance.” They tolerate everything but Christianity.

All those bad things have come to pass in America’s toleration of sodomy and the “gender-confused” as a “civil right” and “lifestyle.”

The secret truth is that sodomy is so much more. It is the secret ritual of political power. It is a recruitment tool for global collectivism. Globalism, with its underlying principle of collectivism and its secret ritual of sodomy is not primarily an economic or political development. Globalism, collectivism and sodomy are the result of moral decline on a mass scale.

We now have in this country state-approved abortion, euthanasia, homosexuality, a “green” movement that exalts nature above people and much, much more.

Included in this “much, much more” would be Keynesian economics, gun control, confiscatory taxation, mass government spying, unquestioned support of Big Brother Government to the point of neighbors snitching on each other, corporate-government development of laws and public policy, and media-government collaborative propaganda.

It is all collectivism. It is all totalitarianism. All of these features of Nazism are features of modern democracy. One of my favorite formulas revealing the true nature of collectivism is: Communism = socialism = Nazism = democracy = occultism. The past 100 years will go down in history as the most successful hundred years of collectivism, led by the socialist democracy of the United States.

The great irony is that because of the occult power of collectivist propaganda, when one criticizes any of the things of collectivism he is the one who is falsely branded a “fascist.” As the kids on the playground exclaim, it takes one to know one!

Police state tyranny on display

The “vaunted” men in blue commonly called police officers have come to believe they are the law and above the law. The system seems to support it, and the sheeple seem to blithely accept it.

Video from McKinney, Texas, a bedroom community outside of Dallas, shows how out of control LEOs (legally entitled to oppress) have become, and how they escalate encounters rather than diffuse them.

The as yet unidentified officer — and his compatriots in blue — can be heard barking conflicting orders and screaming profanities at the teenagers. As one of the teenagers at the event told reporters, “They (police) were trying to make us leave, but if we ran, they’d chase after us, and if we stayed, then they’d arrest us.”

One bikini-clad girl who did not “comply” quick enough, was thrown to the ground, dragged across cement and into the grass where the “brave” officer tried to drive her face into the turf. When some of her friends came to her aid, the officer pulled his gun and brandished it, causing some to run away. Two officers took off in pursuit while the original officer returned to abusing the girl. She was handcuffed and left facedown in the grass, where she screamed and moaned.

This shoot-first-ask-question-later mindset among LEOs today is what led to the death of Dillon Taylor, an unarmed man in Salt Lake City, Utah, two days after Michael Brown was shot in Ferguson, Missouri.

Taylor and two friends walked out of a 7-Eleven where officer Bron Cruz was waiting after a 911 call about possible gang activity came to the station. Cruz’s body camera shows Taylor walking away from Cruz and failing to obey commands to halt. After a number of steps, Taylor turns around but continues walking backwards. Cruz then shoots him twice.

After shooting him, Cruz handcuffs the limp man and begins searching him for a weapon, waiting more than two minutes to begin administering first aid as Taylor pours blood out in the parking lot.

Taylor was unarmed, drunk (press reports say his blood alcohol level was .18) and not making a threatening gesture nor committing a crime when he was shot, other than not immediately complying with an officer barking irrationally at him.

The Salt Lake County District Attorney ruled Taylor’s shooting justified. Cruz had reason to believe Taylor had a gun shoved down his pants, he said.

Police say they have suspended the officer involved in the McKinney incident pending a review. His actions were such that if one of us “regular people” had carried our any one of them — cursing at the crowd, abusing a girl, brandishing a weapon — we would have been incarcerated.

History has shown that officers rarely suffer any consequence for their behavior because of “qualified immunity.” Likely, the system will determine the girl, and someone in the crowd, possibly, maybe, could have had gun concealed… somewhere. So his actions will be ruled “justified.”

The “law and order crowd” will shrug their collective shoulders and say, “They had it coming to them. They should have just immediately complied.”

They should thank their lucky stars they didn’t end up like Taylor. That seems to be what the officer is telling two youths at the end of the video.

Why you should avoid statins

More than 1 in 4 Americans aged 45 and older are now on statins to lower cholesterol. Statins are among the most-prescribed of all medications in America.

The best doctors that I know will write a prescription instantly for a statin (i.e., a drug to force cholesterol lower). The cholesterol myth is so well-established and so completely accepted by doctors that there is almost no inquiry into this crime of commerce.

The cholesterol myth is based on the Lipid Hypothesis created by Ancel Keys in the 1950s. The Lipid Hypothesis is a theory that saturated animal fats and cholesterol in our food raise cholesterol levels in the blood. Then the theory goes that high blood cholesterol causes atherosclerosis, leading to obstruction of blood vessels of the heart and resulting in coronary heart disease. The pharmaceuticals saw trillions of dollars of profits. Who can say that the pharmaceuticals didn’t create the flawed studies that led to the cholesterol profit empire that we have today. In fact, the Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention both rely on industry studies when giving their approval for drugs. You may call it a “science” of fraud?

Suppressing cholesterol is not about health. It’s about making money, and the people who created the cholesterol myth did so to make trillions of dollars — and they are doing it.

A study from Harvard on Asta-Zeneca’s statin drug Crestor, promoted by the American Heart Association, claims that people with normal cholesterol levels taking Crestor have a 54 percent lower risk of heart attack than people not taking it. That and other studies were funded by — you guessed it — Astra-Zeneca. But the study in question did not explain why.

Independent studies have shown that statin drugs raise vitamin D levels, which, as John Cannell, M.D. writes, “may be a contributing mechanism by which statins decrease mortality.”

But that decrease, if founded, comes at a steep price. Studies show that for every 10,000 people on statins, there were:

  • 307 additional patients with cataracts.
  • 23 more patients with acute kidney failure.
  • 74 additional patients with liver dysfunction.

Another scientific review found that statins were even worse for women, actually increasing their risk for cardiac disease. It also showed that statin therapy increased:

  • Muscle fatigabilty by 30 percent with more than 11 percent incidence of rhabdomyolysis (a life-threatening muscle condition) at high doses.
  • Coronary artery and aortic calcification.
  • Erectile dysfunction, which is 10 times more common in young men taking the lowest dose of statin.
  • Increased diabetes risk.
  • Increased cancer risk.

Patients on statins also often have a side effect known as myalgia, which is a muscle pain, or myonecrosis, which is the death of muscle cells.

A new study conducted by the Jewish Hospital of Cincinnati has found that vitamin D supplementation reduces these effects.

The crux of the matter is that you can get the benefits of statin drugs — decreased mortality and lower rates of atherosclerosis — by changing your diet and by supplementing vitamin D.

It’s not a “diet” as much as it’s a lifestyle change. It starts with fresh, whole foods — primarily raw — and only free-range meats. The Nutritarian Diet is one such option.

The cholesterol myth is a monument to the lies, deceit and fraud of the pharmaceuticals and the government. Save and invest the $600 or more that you are spending monthly to keep up the pharmaceuticals. I promise and guarantee you positive results beyond anything you can imagine.
