“the coming bull market in freedom.”
Because politics is too important to leave to the politicians and if the people remain passive in politics then the oligarchy will shape society to their liking as every oligarchy through out history have done. And economics is too important to leave to the economists.
I like football and a lot of other things but I recognise that these things are bread and circuses and act as an opiate on the masses to zombify them.
I ask that you come out of your zombification.
2m30s “In the Austrian sense we think that society doesn’t need overlords, that people are capable of running their own lives, making their own decisions, promoting for their own prosperity and developing a capitalist economy based on the division of labour and more and more specialisation, more and more investment and savings. That’s what builds not only human prosperity but civilisation itself. To the Keynesians their stated view is that, sort of think of the economy as a truck running down a hill and if the government’s not there stepping on the brake, shifting and steering it, why it’s going to go off and crash. Of course it’s the government that causes it to go off and crash.”
3m20s “They believe it’s the government’s job and it’s a wonderful for society to have this bankster monopoly creating money for the benefit of the government and the benefit of the big banks and other institutions part of the governing oligarchy and close to the government, and that’s a good thing. It’s of course not a good thing, it’s a rip off. It’s maybe the greatest rip off in the history of the world, the federal reserve.”
4m35s “The business cycle is not something that’s natural to the economy. It’s not something that just happens but rather it’s the result of intervention and it’s the result of intervention into the banking system by creating money, by lowering interest rates thereby below the market rate thereby leading to all kinds of investments that turn out not to have been very smart when things stop and then you have unemployment, you have systemic bankruptcies because of the bubble.”
9m25s “David Stockman was a speaker there, he was very much a part of the Reagan administration. Would you consider him a supply sider ? And he was certainly very, very critical in his speech he gave there in New York about what’s going on now, he said he believes the capital markets are about to be completely destroyed by what’s going on with the fed but would you consider David Stockman a supply sider ? … No, he’s far too smart to be a supply sider. You have to remember he was fired as Head of the OMB, the Office of Management and Budget, because he said the whole thing was phony, they were lying about what they were doing and they were lying about their projections, their rosy scenarios and so he was fired, he was fired for telling the truth which, of course, is always a bad idea in the government.”
10m20s “He’s working on a fantastic new book on crony capitalism and the markets and what’s ahead of us and I’ve seen a part of it and it’s quite extraordinary.”
13m “The most recent great thing is that in fact Ron Paul was also one of the very early people supporting the Institute and he was gracious enough to help us raise some seed money in the very early days, has always been a good supporter and what he has done in his last two presidential campaigns is to spread the word about Austrian economics, never been anything like that in history, all around the world he’s interested I would argue, if you look at the whole world, millions of young people in Austrian economics.”
I understand that the Keynesian school of economics is only good for transferring wealth from society to the oligarchy and the Austrian school of economics but alas I’m not so young any more.
20m20s “People can relate to Austrian economics. It’s why my mother who only went through her second year in high school said that Ron Paul was the only one, the only presidential candidate, who made any sense to her.”
21m25s “I told my subscribers and listeners that they had two choices, they could vote for a communist or a fascist in this presidential election … I would just amend it to say they had a choice between a fascist and a fascist because both these guys despite the rhetoric are affiliated with exactly the same interest groups, that is Wall Street banks, big pharma, the military-industrial complex, just go down the list of all the big industries that live off the government.”
22m5s “This is, of course, the American system to fool the people to give you creep A versus creep B and that’s supposed to be heralded as democracy.
22m35s “The interest groups, the American oligarchy wins, George Soros, Warren Buffett, Koch brothers and so forth, they all do very well, that’s sort of the permanent government. And every once in a while the oligarchy changes the little button on their lapels.”
23m15s “Other forces that are hollowing out a middle class, what’s left of it in the united states … We’re just peons to them … Yeah, we’re serfs I guess.”
23m40s “We’re super serfs.”
25m55s “The Austrians show that value in any kind of a good is entirely subjective, that is you might love my tie, maybe you’d pay $50 for my tie, your producer might have to be paid $50 to wear my tie. We’re all different and it’s the value that we have, what we’re willing to pay for it, that’s what gives value to a good, it’s not the amount of labour. It can be a mistake the amount of labour in something or it can be a very smart thing and this is the role of the entrepreneur to sort of see into the future and really these great entrepreneurs have a sense of which they can actually understand the future, they can see that if things are put together in a certain way and certain goods produced of certain sort at a certain time in a certain place, they’re going to make a lot of money and serve the public.”
32m5s “There was a shortage of gasoline, still is a shortage of gasoline in New Jersey. So you have these huge lines because all of a sudden gasoline was far more valuable, you have to allow the price to rise. What happens then, I don’t know what gasoline would sold for right after the hurricane hit, would it have been $15 a gallon ? Would it have been $20 a gallon ? Whatever it would have been you would have had every guy in the whole country with a tanker truck or people with fleets of tanker trucks sending all the gasoline to New Jersey and the price would have come way back down and everybody would have had the gasoline that they needed, they would not have to wait on a line but people are so stupid that you can have the government set the price.”
Any gasoline that is in an unaffected neighbouring area, for example Pennsylvania, there is an additional cost of transporting it from there to New Jersey so imposing a price control is asking anyone thinking of doing this to take a loss so they don’t.
33m55s “I’ve often times said that the biggest disadvantage you can have in life is to have a PhD in economics from a major university, would you agree ? … Well, Mises said the economics is far to important to leave to the economists. It is important for all of us to understand some economics and it’s why I want to mention again Henry Hazlitt’s ‘Economics in One Lesson’ (http://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_sb_ss_i_0_14?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=economics+in+one+lesson&sprefix=economics+in+o%2Caps%2C206)”
35m45s “teach obedience to the state and bowing down and worship of politicians and be happy to give them your wallets, you children or yourself to go fight their wars and obey them in every other sense.”
We the people need our independence from any and all parasitical governments.
37m35s “Our way is the way of peace and of tolerance and of volunteerism, but if we intellectually organise against them, if more and more people as Ron Paul again has affected millions of lives, if we can build on what Ron did, I see amazing changes among young people that give me a lot of hope for the future.”
We have to intellectually kill these Keynesians until they are dead then rinse and repeat.
39m55s “Maybe some day people will look back and think of this as the Age of Ron Paul.”
41m55s “It wasn’t until government was massively cut after world war 2 that we probable had the greatest year of economic growth ever in the history of the human race, probably a 30% economic growth in one year in this country.”

Thomas Alva Edison – an American inventor and businessman
“If our nation can issue a dollar bond, it can issue a dollar bill. The element that makes the bond good, makes the bill good, also. The difference between the bond and the bill is the bond lets money brokers collect twice the amount of the bond and an additional 20%, whereas the currency pays nobody but those who contribute directly in some useful way. … It is absurd to say our country can issue $30 million in bonds and not $30 million in currency. Both are promises to pay, but one promise fattens the usurers and the other helps the people.”
The example of $30 million in bonds he gives, as well as paying back $30 million to the bond purchaser there also needs to be additional dollars collected to pay the interest to the bond holder during the life of the bond.
It is difficult for some people to see this for what it is: a pyramid scheme that will eventually crash.

This Revolution Is Personal
“When the government tells you that you cannot grow your own food, and slips pesticide-ridden GMOs into the nation’s food supply unlabeled, it’s time to discard the system.”
“When government agencies tell you what you can and cannot eat, then enforce that compliance with armed goons, it’s time to discard the system.”
“When you are forced into bondage in order to merely survive, then get taxed to death so that survival is at a bare minimum, it’s time to discard the system.”
“When “too big to fail” corporations stomp on “consumers” like they are just so much rabble to use up and throw away, it’s time to discard the system.”
“When you go to a hospital to get well, and that hospital kills you through incompetence and outright malice, it’s time to discard the system.”

“When poisoning the nation’s water supply with a known hazardous waste is standard operating procedure, it’s time to discard the system.”
“When poisonous chemicals are dumped from the sky on an unknowing populace in the guise of “protecting” the people, it’s time to discard the system.”
“When the media routinely lies and hides the truth, it’s time to discard the system.”
“When people are routinely maimed and killed by government approved drugs that are made mandatory by that very same government, it’s time to discard the system.”
Perhaps someone can explain to me why Americans should not enjoy the right to grow their food when the highest law of the nation does not grant the government any such power over food production and contains in it’s ninth amendment the following ‘The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.’
139 QUOTES FROM PEOPLE WHO CONSIDER US CATTLE
“4. “In the next century, nations as we know it will be obsolete; all states will recognize a single, global authority. National sovereignty wasn’t such a great idea after all.” — Strobe Talbot, President Clinton’s Deputy Secretary of State, as quoted in Time, July 20th, 1992.”
“5. “Nationalism is… First wave. The globalization of business and finance by advancing Third Wave economies routinely punctures the national “sovereignty” the nationalists hold so dear…” “The Third Wave… demassifies culture, values, and morality… There are more diverse religious belief systems.” “The Consitution of the United States needs to be reconsidered and altered… to create a whole new structure of government…” The Tofflers say fundamentalist, biblical Christianity is “both dangerous and regressive.” Beliefs in nationalism, patriotism, and an exclusive God, “give birth to violence or repression.” Only when these “Dark Age” menaces are swept away can “advanced wealth creation” by the elite be achieved.” — Newt Gingrich Mason, member of both the World Future Society and the Council on Foreign Relations, wrote the forward to Alvin and Heidi Toffler’s Creating a New Civilization”
“8. The truth of the matter is that you do have those standby provisions, and the statutory emergency plans are there whereby you could, in the name of stopping terrorism, apprehend, invoke the military, and arrest Americans and hold them in detention camps.” — U.S. Representative Henry Gonzalez, August 29, 1994”
“9. “The high office of the President has been used to foment a plot to destroy the American’s freedom and before I leave office, I must inform the citizen of this plight.” — President John Fitzgerald Kennedy – In a speech made to Columbia University on Nov. 12, 1963, ten days before his assassination”
“11. “The drive of the Rockefellers and their allies is to create a one-world government combining supercapitalism and Communism under the same tent, all under their control…. Do I mean conspiracy? Yes I do. I am convinced there is such a plot, international in scope, generations old in planning, and incredibly evil in intent.” — Congressman Larry P. McDonald, 1976, killed in the Korean Airlines 747 that was shot down by the Soviets.”
“14. “To achieve world government, it is necessary to remove from the minds of men their individualism, loyalty to family traditions, national patriotism, and religious dogmas.” — Brock Adams, Director UN Health Organization”
“18. “No one will enter the New World Order unless he or she will make a pledge to worship Lucifer. No one will enter the New Age unless he will take a Luciferian Initiation.” — David Spangler, Director of Planetary Initiative, United Nations”
I’ll repeat that – worship Lucifer.
“23. “The idea was that those who direct the overall conspiracy could use the differences in those two so-called ideologies [marxism/fascism/socialism v. democracy/capitalism] to enable them [the Illuminati] to divide larger and larger portions of the human race into opposing camps so that they could be armed and then brainwashed into fighting and destroying each other.” — Myron Fagan”
“30. “From the days of Sparticus, Wieskhopf, Karl Marx, Trotsky, Rosa Luxemberg, and Emma Goldman, this world conspiracy has been steadily growing. This conspiracy played a definite recognizable role in the tragedy of the French revolution. It has been the mainspring of every subversive movement during the 19th century. And now at last this band of extraordinary personalities from the underworld of the great cities of Europe and America have gripped the Russian people by the hair of their head and have become the undisputed masters of that enormous empire.” — Winston Churchill, stated to the London Press, in 1922.”
“38. “The case for government by elites is irrefutable” — Senator William Fulbright, Former chairman of the US Senate Foreign Relations Committee, stated at a 1963 symposium entitled: The Elite and the Electorate – Is Government by the People Possible?”

Kevin Phillips Discusses the Role Played by Money, Debt, & Trade in the American Revolution
“Lauren asks Kevin Phillips why 1775 was a good year for revolution, and not 1776, the date commonly associated with the American Revolution. Mr. Phillips tells Lauren that it was in fact in the spring of 1775 that the government was formed, in june the army was created, and in july the congress passed the declaration of the causes and necessities of taking up arms. The king of Great Britain declared the colonies in rebellion by august of 1775. It was already widely recognized that the empire was being torn in half.”
“Kevin Phillips also dispels another myth, that being that the colonies were this unified and disaffected mass rebelling against the crown. Reality is more complicated. There were a certain number of important colonies that stand out above the rest, namely Massachusetts, Virginia and South Carolina. Lauren also spoke with Kevin Phillips about some of the economic causes of the revolution. As commonly as we hear 1776 associated with the date of the revolution, “taxation without representation,” is often cited as the economic battle cry of the revolution. In reality, currency laws and trade restrictions were far more important, according to Kevin Phillips, who cites the Currency Act of 1764 as only the latest in many forms of monetary control over the colonies, as well as the various Navigation, which were a series of laws that restricted the use of foreign shipping for trade between the British Crown and its colonies, a process which had started in 1651.”
“Lauren also asks Kevin Phillips to compare the current financial system in America with that which existed in the colonies and Great Britain at the time of the revolution. How much of an influence did finance play during 1775 and in the preceding years, and how does this compare to what we have seen in America before and after the crisis of 2008.”
A Russia Today programme talking about the 1770s American Revolution in a financial sense, and not CNBC. This is very, very strange.
7m50s “The bank of England at that time was the most important central bank in Europe, they had a lot of skills, a wide ranging empire and they were very anxious to continue, frankly, to milk the American colonies because Britain had emerged after the Seven Years War, our French And Indian War, as the leading power in Europe and that was a new role for them and to maintain that strength, they had to basically treat the American Colonies as plantations as an area that had no rights and existed to serve the British Crown and as America was gaining population left and right they basically said we don’t do this any more, we’re not in short pants any more, we’ve grown up, don’t treat us this way. The British basically fluffed it off and said that’s the colonial system. It wasn’t acceptable … How would you compare, I know it’s not directly analogous, you’re talking about the bank of England and I would be talking about the big banks in the US, but how would you compare the power of the US banking system and the control that they’ve exerted both over politics and in terms of the defrauding of US consumers. How would you compare this power to the power of the British banking sector back in 1775 ? … Well, the current power of the American banking system is much, much greater because finance is a much larger component of the gross domestic product today than it was back then. The British as their empire was collapsing after world war 1 were another empire where finance had become huge and finance when it grows and gets too big usually does so at the expense of industry and other more productive functions of the economy and that has happened in the united states.”
Mohamed Morsi approves martial law in Egypt, state media reports
“CAIRO: Struggling to subdue continuing street protests, the government of President Mohamed Morsi has approved legislation reimposing martial law by calling on the armed forces to keep order and authorizing soldiers to arrest civilians, Egypt’s state media reported on Saturday.”
DAMN WELL try dialogue not ‘arresting’ civilians for having the cheek to think they can petition.
“The military “realizes its national responsibility for maintaining the supreme interests of the nation and securing and protecting the vital targets, public institutions, and the interests of the innocent citizens,” the spokesman said.”
You will notice how ‘the interests of the innocent citizens’ is last NOT FIRST. Was the inclusion of that phrase an after thought ?
“Al Ahram reported that the defense minister would determine the scope of the military’s role. Military officers would be authorized to act as police and “to use force to the extent necessary to perform their duty,” the newspaper said.”
What the BLOODY HELL does ‘perform their duty’ mean ? How about protecting the people ?
Was the adoption of the 1787 American Constitution anything like this ?
“Even the possibility presents an extraordinary role reversal: an elected president who spent decades opposing Mubarak’s use of martial law to detain Islamists — a former leader of the Muslim Brotherhood who himself spent months in jail under the “emergency law” — is poised to resort to similar tactics to control unrest and violence from secular groups.”

““I’m skeptical about sarin being prepared or artillery shells being filled. I’ve just seen too much in the past with satellite photography making assumptions about chemical weapons, most infamously in Iraq,” said Greg Thielmann, a senior fellow at the Arms Control Association in Washington and an early skeptic of U.S. claims that Iraq had built up a chemical weapons arsenal prior to the U.S. invasion in 2003. At the time, Thielmann was acting director for the State Department office responsible for analyzing the Iraqi weapons threat. No such weapons were found once U.S. troops had vanquished Iraqi forces.”

CoT and Chart Review
“As noted above, on the price drop last week, the Large Specs in gold shed 34,671 net long contracts. On a similar price drop in silver, the Large Specs shed a grand total of 3. That’s right…3! The Large Specs dropped a rather miniscule 880 longs but also covered 877 shorts. That’s a net change of 3. The Small Specs played along a little but but still nowhere near what JPM et al would like to see. The Small Specs dumped 1,324 longs but they, too, covered shorts to the tune of 507 for a net change of just 817.”
“So where was the action? All of it within The Cartel category. The Silver Cartel (pretty much everyone except JPM) dumped 4,134 longs and The Silver Cartel (primarily JPM) covered 4,954 shorts. So, on the $1.25 price drop, The Silver Cartel only saw their net position fall by 820 contracts and their net short ratio barely budged at 2.52:1. Again, refer back the the gold CoT. The Gold Cartel reduced their net position by over 41,000 contracts or, roughly, 15%. On a similar price move, the Silver Bad Guys were only able to reduce their net short position by 820 or, roughly, 1.3%.”

While We Increase QE to Infinity, China Wisely Doubles Down on Gold Accumulation
“China gold stocks could easily top 10,000 tons. While worth ‘only’ $700 billion or so, this accumulation will soon be sufficient to lay down the Yuan marker as an alternative currency. If the rest of the Chinese ‘Golden Horde’ allies rally behind the Yuan, we will be faced with our own monetary existential problem. This is the real USD currency collapse that so many wise minds talk about. One day the light switch on the dollar will be turned off. The inflation tsunami will be staggeringly large. All the conversations we’ve had about inflation and the dollar collapse will be spoken in the past tense.
Whatever remaining dollar reserves held in China will be written off, just like the Greek Bonds going through their third haircut in 3 years.”

In fact, right up until the crash they were saying that nothing like what happened could ever happen… This monetary policy, $3 trillion of bond buying in the United States, $3 trillion in Europe and another $2.5 trillion to $3 trillion in Japan, is unprecedented.”

The Latest (at least partially justified) Vitriol From Ann Barnhardt: “We brought this on ourselves”
Listen to all, follow none.
3m20s “The Republic is dead. If you fail or refuse to acknowledge this objective reality, you are not just part of the problem, you are in cahoots with the enemy.”
5m25s “Acknowledging the Obama putsch regime as legitimate government is an act of explicit consent. ALL governments derive their power from the CONSENT OF THE GOVERNED.”
8m30s “Is that consent acquired honestly, or is it acquired via coercion ? If it is acquired via coercion, it is the fault of the people for allowing themselves to be coerced. This is the core of the Just War theory.”
10m45s “There is no such thing as ‘coercion’. There is either capitulation to evil, or standing fast against it, even unto death. Allowing one’s self to be coerced is a sin against charity.”
13m25s “LICENSE: When a government permits something. Nazis had full license to murder Jews and other ‘undesirables’ and enemies of the Third Reich. Was that license LICIT according to Natural Law?”
13m50s “Americans have full license from their government to kill preborn children, but do NOT have license to practice Catholicism. Is this LICIT under to Natural Law?”
15m30s “LIBERTY: Freedom from arbitrary or despotic government control. Homeless man robs liquor store for $50, gets 10 year prison sentence. Jon Corzine steals $1.6 billion with zero consequences. This is ARBITRARY TYRANNY.”
If the punishment was to fit the scale of the crime then Mr Corzine should have received a 320 million year prison sentence.
THE RULE OF LAW IS NO MORE.
17m45s “Business owner refuses to insure abortion or contraception, as both are MORTAL SIN. B&B owner declines to let a room to sodomites, or host sodomite ‘wedding’ reception as sodomy is MORTAL SIN. Both businesses are destroyed by regime. This is ARBITRARY TYRANNY.”
If these Americans could not have their first amendment freedom of religion recognised by a court of law then the Republic is dead.
18m55s “Elections are no longer free. They are staged theatre designed to maintain the illusion of representative governance and to enrich the political class. This is DESPOTISM.”
20m50s “Romney raised $1 B which was largely invoiced and cross-invoiced to ‘consultants’. These consultants are members of the oligarch / political class.”
22m25s “The political class working the ‘Republican’ side looks down upon all of you as gullible hillybilly trash to be BLED DRY. How much longer are you going to stand for this ?”
22m35s “ARE YOU REALLY THAT STUPID ? Are you really going to fall for this scam AGAIN ? Are you so obtuse that you are going to fall for whatever bulls**t artist waves the ‘Republican’ flag and scams you out of your money ?”
24m15s “The clue that anybody is ineligible for any leadership position in this country is the fact that they’re running for office.”
Direct democracy like that practised by the Swiss sounds good to me.
24m35s “If you do choose to fall for the bread-and-circuses again, you will be morally responsible for enabling the satanic revolution, and will deserve every bit of hell that rains down upon you.”
25m40s “There is no more liberty. Either you cooperate with the tyrannical, despotic oligarchy or you will lose all of your property and eventually be imprisoned.”
26m10s “FREEDOM is the inability to be COERCED into turning your back on God. Every person who pays taxes into this regime, knowing that it is an anti-christ, knowing that it is an explicit cult of child sacrifice, has entered into MORTAL SIN.”
30m5s “On your health insurance bill you are going to start seeing a one dollar a month abortion surcharge.”
30m25s “You will pay for abortion, you will put Christ on the cross and you will nail him to it. Are you going to capitulate ? Who do you love ? Do you love Christ or do you love the IRS ? Do you love Christ or do you love your precious, precious s**t ?”
Such a thing abolishes the first amendment freedom of religion for most Americans and demonstrates that the Republic is dead.
30m45s “THE ONLY THING YOU LEFT NOW IS FREEDOM. Sadly, almost of all of you are too cowardly, shallow and materialistic to ever be free. You are already slaves because you DEMAND to be slaves.”
33m20s “Not fighting this putsch regime is choosing the State OVER GOD. To cooperate is to CRUCIFY CHRIST. To cooperate is to take up the banner of the satanic revolution. To cooperate is to RENDER YOUR SOUL TO CAESAR.”
33m45s “What is the rest of the verse, cha cha ? ‘Render unto God that which is Gods’.”
36m10s “REVOLUTION is any movement that turns away from God. COUNTER-REVOLUTION is any movement that seeks to RETURN to God. You cannot have it both ways. You must choose a side.”
39m “They estimated that they would have to execute 10% of the population of the united states, which at that time was 250 million. They fully acknowledged that they would have to execute at least 25 million ‘counter-revolutionaries’.”
40m40s “The ‘Republican party’ is now openly driving for capitulation of social issues such as abortion and sodomite ‘marriage’ in the name of moderation and pragmatism. If you cooperate with this in any way, you are joining the satanic culture of revolution
42m10s “WHAT CAN YOU DO ? Engage in counter-revolution. Be authentically free. Love God. Trust in God. Abandon yourself and your family to Divine Providence. Realize that the only thing that matters is heaven or hell, and where you spend eternity.”
43m30s “Once you do this, you can no longer be coerced. Confiscation of property, imprisonment, death. This is what it means to be a Christian in a land of satanic revolution.”
44m30s “STOP PAYING TAXES. Max-out exemptions and DO NOT FILE. Does your SOUL belong to Caesar ? Does the blood of slaughtered children belong to Caesar ?”
45m5s “Are Christians called to submit to SATANIC AUTHORITY ? No, they are called to resist it unto death.”
45m15s “Romans 13: ‘Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God. And those that are, are ordained of God. Therefore he that resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God. And they that resist purchase to themselves damnation. For princes are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? Do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same. For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, fear; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is God’s minister, an avenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil. Wherefore be subject of necessity, not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake.’”
46m15s “There are three verses in that that specifically give us criterion for determining what government is licit and what government is not.”
48m40s “The Obama putsch regime is a TERROR to men who do GOOD WORK. The Obama putsch regime is a minister to SATAN for EVIL. The Obama putsch regime violates reason and well-formed conscience. The Obama putsch regime therefore has ZERO authority, legitimacy, or protection, and not only should not be tolerated, but should be fought against and destroyed IN THE NAME OF GOD.”
50m50s “The last non-violent path left to us is a tax strike. This non-violent remedy MUST be engaged FIRST. Failure to do this GUARANTEES hot war. I am prepared to spend the rest of my natural life in prison, and/or be executed. Are you ?”
52m25s “Given that most so-called ‘Christian conservatives’ in this culture are so weak and so steeped in neo-pagan decadence that they refuse to CANCEL THEIR CABLE SUBSCRIPTION, much less lose property, be imprisoned or die for God and the Truth, I have very little hope.”
53m55s “At the end of the day, I can only do the right thing for myself, and pray that one or two others learn from my example. We are all free sovereigns. You have to choose to love God over your precious s**t for yourselves. Ponder the first ten seconds in hell, then choose wisely.”
1h10s “In fact, local governance should be in every way superior to the state and the state should be superior to the federal level.”
Sun Blamed for Warming of Earth and Other Worlds (12 March 2007)
““Global warming on Neptune’s moon Triton as well as Jupiter and Pluto, and now Mars has some [scientists] scratching their heads over what could possibly be in common with the warming of all these planets … Could there be something in common with all the planets in our solar system that might cause them all to warm at the same time?””
“This is not to say that solar fluctuations never influence Earth’s climate in substantial ways. During a 75-year period beginning in 1645, astronomers detected almost no sunspot activity on the Sun. Called the “Maunder Minimum,” this event coincided with the coldest part of the Little Ice Age, a 350-year cold spell that gripped much of Europe and North America.”
The truth about global warming – it’s the Sun that’s to blame (18 Jul 2004)
“Global warming has finally been explained: the Earth is getting hotter because the Sun is burning more brightly than at any time during the past 1,000 years, according to new research.”

David Wilcock: Back in Action!
The 21st December 2012 end times seeded into numerous ancient mythologies is the doom for some people but not the vast majority of the 7 billion people inhabiting planet earth. It is the doom of the oligarchic class.
“As it turns out, there is an astonishing correlation between Roman history and American history beginning at least in 1896.”
“You simply take Roman events and move them 2,160 years ahead — and there are many shocking correlations.”
“The old “torture wheels” of war, deprivation and pain stop repeating, and we have the opportunity for a very significant change.”
War makes the oligarchy richer and makes everyone else, those who are not killed, makes everyone else poorer.

Zombies: is Britain prepared for an attack?
“”Zombie Apocalypse” is US military code-speak for an enraged population of starving citizens rising in protest against oppressive government. The phrase “Zombie Apocalypse” is used to (unsuccessfully) conceal from the public what the military are really training to do, and of course, to dehumanize the targets to make it easier for the soldiers to kill them in mass numbers. This is why Germans became “krauts”, the Vietnamese were “Charlie”, and the Muslims “Hadjis.” What the government and military are really talking about when they say they are preparing for the “Zombie Apocalypse” is that they are preparing to murder 1/4 of the population to keep the other 3/4 obedient.”

FDA Expands Irradiation of Food Supply; Harmonizing with Codex Alimentarius
“Demonstrating the lack of concern held by regulatory agencies for public safety or public opinion as well as the increasing attempts to become compliant with Codex Alimentarius regulations, the FDA has recently expanded the amount of ionized radiation that can be used to treat unrefrigerated raw meat.”
“Although a period for public comment is always set aside for regulatory agency decisions regarding potential changes to policy, the FDA promptly ignored the many comments it received from individuals all over the country as well as consumer advocacy groups which requested the denial of the two FSIS petitions.”
“The response from the FDA was that all of these comments, made by individuals and by groups such as Public Citizen and the Center for Food Safety, “were of a general nature” and “did not contain any substantive information that could be used in a safety evaluation of irradiated poultry.” This statement was made regarding both the poultry irradiation rule and the passage of a new meat temperature rule.”
Hitler’s War: What the Historians Neglect to Mention
“For he, like Merkel and the others, continues to ignore many facts, and only dutifully reminds Germans of the guilt of their forefathers (and by extension, their own “inherited” guilt), based upon a highly sanitized “official version” of history.”
I will see if there are any unseen facts for myself and let the chips fall where they may.
Homeland Security and FBI Release Document Once Again Labeling Photographers as Potential Terrorists
“Except that it’s nonsense. The 9/11 terrorists didn’t photograph anything. Nor did the London transport bombers, the Madrid subway bombers, or the liquid bombers arrested in 2006. Timothy McVeigh didn’t photograph the Oklahoma City Federal Building. The Unabomber didn’t photograph anything; neither did shoe-bomber Richard Reid. Photographs aren’t being found amongst the papers of Palestinian suicide bombers. The IRA wasn’t known for its photography. Even those manufactured terrorist plots that the US government likes to talk about — the Ft. Dix terrorists, the JFK airport bombers, the Miami 7, the Lackawanna 6 — no photography.”

Four and Counting: Another State to Consider Obamacare Nullification
How to brainwash the sheeple into doing anything you want
“We could do a warped experiment, for example, on a small child. Find any common object – say a red ball. Hold up the red ball and then terrorize the child into a state of intense fear by yelling or screaming at him. Then, put the ball away and return to normalcy. Repeat this sick little ritual daily.”
“First, I’d champion principles like conformity, consumerism, instant gratification, social status, and intolerance for personal sacrifice. All of these are wonderful “red ball” kinds of tools that can be used to induce workable positive and negative feelings. Of course, I’d be grateful for all of the lazy, immature parents who help tremendously by enslaving their children to fear.”

38m20s “I have written to the Swiss and I have gotten the tribunal hearings, court transcripts, everything. They are shocking in their total non-relationship to anything called justice.”

Protestors in China clash with police
“Police in a south China city bordering Vietnam clashed with thousands of rioters who were protesting against excessive brutality meted out to a suspected smuggler, the government and a rights group said.”
“The incident occurred Friday in Dongxing city in Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, with rioters destroying numerous police and border patrol vehicles and clashing with security forces, local police said in microblog postings.”
“Academics estimate China saw 180,000 protests last year over a wide range of issues including corruption, government-backed land grabs, police brutality and unpaid wages.”
Armed US Citizens… The Future of Terrorism
“It seems the new concern of our great republic is the one who’s been here all along… the one who loves America but, is now very concerned for our future. US citizens are making preparations. They see terms like “fiscal cliff” and hear the mass media talk about “depression” and recession.” They have witnessed first hand the devastation left by violent storms and countries ravaged by war and want to be sure their family is protected at all cost. They want to be “preppers.” There is even a new popular reality show that depicts prepping as a norm and shows us all how to do it.”
“The scene below would make you think a bomb threat had occured or a dangerous criminal was shooting helpless victims at some distant college campus. FALSE! They, along with a tactical team numbering in the hundreds were merely executing a search warrant in Sharpsburg, MD.”
“Here is a letter written by an anonymous person who witnessed the events.”
“We the people of Sharpsburg, MD would like to make a statement about events in which occurred on Thursday, Nov. 29th. Our tiny town was invaded by 200+ state police, SWAT, FBI and border patrol agents. The residents communicated through social media and by stopping in the local gas station to find out that a manhunt was going on for a resident by the name of Terry Porter. He is a friend, a hard worker and a well liked person in Sharpsburg.”
“The town is left with feeling helpless and angry after this whole mess. Hundreds of thousands of tax payers’ dollars were wasted. We, including Terry Porter, are hardworking people just trying to make ends meet. This was absolute overkill and totally wrong. The police had a search warrant and nothing else. They terrorized this town with their speeding trucks and armed troops and it’s a miracle a tragedy such as Waco or Ruby Ridge did not occur.”
Not a dozen law enforcement officers, not two dozen law enforcement officers, not hundreds of law enforcement officers, there were hundreds of law enforcement officers. Someone high up in law enforcement has lost their mind.
Are the Insurgents in the US Government Growing Bold or Desperate?
“Last week an American national, Terry Porter, identified as a “Doomsday Prepper” was attacked in Maryland by 150 government goons because he possessed four shotguns, a 30-30, and two .22s.”
“As this occurred, a US park in Arizona has signs displaying a warning to US nationals to stay out as these portions of what is American sovereign territory are occupied by Mexican drug gangs who will kill American nationals if they dare tread there. These Zetas are felons in the possession of fully automatic rifles, grenades, and RPGs, yet they are unmolested. Does this not show the true agenda for the communist insurgency? American nationals are attacked as the enemy as foreign felons are embraced as comrades.”
