While campaigning in 2008, President Barack Obama promised that Americans’ energy bills would “skyrocket” under his term. Now we know what he meant. Families, manufacturers and businesses will be out more than $2 trillion over the next 25 years.
For years, Apple did not involve itself in paying off political favors to government prostitutes in the D.C. cesspool. But apparently, Apple CEO Tim Cook got the message that he needs to play “the game.”
I began publishing my monthly newsletter The Bob Livingston Letter™ (subscription required) in 1969. The following is an excerpt from the March 2001 issue. The article was actually written in February. Mid-March saw the Dow drop 821 points in a week and the S&P 500 lose 7 percent. A year later, the Dow had lost 28 percent and many stocks had gone bust, as I predicted.
Anybody who knows anything about the Federal Reserve and Mr. Greenspan believes that by the lowering of interest rates plus printing money that recession/depression can be averted. They also believe that lower interest rates and new money can restart the bull market in stocks.
A leaked telephone conversation reveals that the snipers who shot at protesters and police in Kiev leading to charges of criminality against the deposed Ukraine President Viktor Yanukovych were hired by U.S.-backed opposition leaders. The telephone call between Estonia Foreign Minister Urmas Paet and EU Foreign Affairs Chief Catherine Ashton was allegedly hacked by agents […]
New York City policemen are under no obligation to protect the city’s denizens from harm. So says the city in response to a lawsuit by a man who was attacked on the subway by a man with a knife.

One in seven American women is currently suffering from breast cancer. The medical establishment pushes annual mammograms as the gold standard for early detection of breast cancer, with the idea that early detection reduces mortality. But a new study published in the British Medical Journal shows that annual mammograms do nothing to reduce mortality rates beyond that of “physical examination or usual care.”
In the study performed by Canadian researchers, 89,305 Canadian women aged 40-59 were enrolled and randomly assigned to one of two groups: one that receive mammograms and one that did not. During the study period that encompassed 25 years, 3,250 women receiving mammograms and 3,133 not receiving them were diagnosed with breast cancer. Of those 3,250 receiving mammograms, 500 died from breast cancer. Of those not receiving mammograms, 505 died from breast cancer.
The U.S.-sponsored Ukrainian uprising is fast falling apart, and Russian President Vladimir Putin is not sitting idly by as the U.S. attempts to control the Ukraine and put U.S. missiles and a U.S. port so near Russia. Who can blame him?

|“The central purpose of Liberty Digest is to raise awareness of the people.” I think I might be Mr Livingstons’/Liberty digests’ biggest “fan.” In fact, I would label the effect this column has had on me in reading it for over 2 years now regularly is “ANTI- gradualism,” or a gradualism of its own in moving toward clear, unpropagandized and conditioned thinking. At first, when I read his columns, they seemed “extremist” and even paranoid or histrionic. Nevertheless, I was drawn to them, probably by the strength of truth primarily, but definitely also by Mr Livingston’s MASTERY of not only tying up the truth into cohesive “bundles,” but interweaving threads of the overall truth(s) he writes about into every column that states those truths from a different perspective or in the context of reporting current events. This has had the effect of GRADUALLY sewing the threads and then re-inforcing the threads into an extremely strong fabric in my psyche. At a minimum, it has set me “free” (“and ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free”) of any misconceptions. What seemed somewhat “histrionic” 2 and a half years ago I now know quite surely to be the extremely scary and true reality of our perilous condition in America. I don’t believe that there is going to be a George Washington to ride in, cross the Deleware, and save us from tyrrancy. Reagan was the closest we are going to get and the Reagan revolution is definitely over!
