A new Gold Standard is being born?
by Alfred Adask
Ambrose Evans-Pritchard is an English journalist. (What else could he be with a name like “Ambrose Evans-Pritchard”?) He’s intelligent, well-educated and a fine writer. More, he has so much courage that, during the G.W. Bush administration, his articles on Bush were so insightful and aggressive, that he was forced to leave the United States. I respect that.
However, he recently published an article entitled “A new Gold Standard is being born?” that included one insight that that I found exciting, and a couple more that strike me as lame.
Mr. Evans-Pritchard observes,
“The world is moving step by step towards a de facto Gold Standard, without any meetings of G20 leaders to announce the idea or bless the project. . . . My guess is that any new Gold Standard will be sui generis, and better for it.”
In other words, Evans-Pritchard believes that a new, “de facto Gold Standard” is already emerging as one nation after another begins to rely on gold rather than fiat dollars to purchase oil and settle international trade accounts. No government, central bank, or G20 spokesman has (as yet) “officially” declared a new gold standard. But Evans-Pritchard believes that a new gold standard is nevertheless evolving “naturally” from the wreckage of the world’s present fiat currency system.
Evans-Pritchard’s observation that the world may be “naturally” gravitating to gold—without official sanction or permission—strikes me as brilliant. I think he’s right, and if he is, that means:
1) The sanction/permission of the Powers That Be (PTB) is becoming increasingly irrelevant to the price of gold;
2) The PTB may be soon too impotent to control the US Dollar Index or the price of gold;
3) We may be returning to a true “free (unmanipulated) market” where no one person or institution exerts undue influence and prices are truly set by the people than the PTB;
4) Fiat currencies may be on the verge of significant decline or even destruction; and,
5) The price of gold may soon increase dramatically.
• Evans-Pritchard cites evidence to support his “de facto Gold Standard” theory:
1) According to the respected Gold Fields Mineral Services “Gold Survey for 2012,” central banks around the world diversified reserves away from the four fiat currencies: dollar, euro, sterling, and yen—and bought more gold bullion (net 536 tons) last year than at any time in almost half a century.
2) Central bank holdings of euro bonds have fallen back to 26%, where they were almost a decade ago. The hope the fiat euro would take its place as the second world reserve currency (alongside the fiat dollar) is fading.
According to Evans-Pritchard,
“Neither the euro nor the dollar can inspire full confidence, although for different reasons. The European Monetary Union (EMU) is a dysfunctional construct, covering two incompatible economies, prone to lurching from crisis to crisis, without a unified treasury to back it up.
3) Germany’s Bundesbank decided to repatriate part of its gold from New York and Paris back to Germany. Evans-Pritchard doesn’t see this event as monumental, but admits that it signals a “breakdown in trust” between major countries and economic powers.
“The dollar stands on a pyramid of debt. We all know that this debt will be inflated away over time – for better or worse. The only real disagreement is over the speed.”
By “breakdown in trust,” Evans-Pritchard apparently means a rising fear that debts denominated in fiat currencies will be significantly repudiated by inflation or open default. Some governments expect other governments—especially, the US—to manipulate their fiat currencies to avoid repaying their debts in full. If that happens, some foreign governments and central banks will suffer huge losses.
If the resulting mistrust grows, “then the world would find itself facing even greater difficulties resolving payments imbalances”—with fiat currencies. As trust in governments and their fiat currencies falls, either foreign trade will be inhibited or nations will begin to pay their trade imbalances with gold rather than paper.
• Although Evans-Pritchard sees a resurrected gold standard emerging, he’s not devout in his praise of gold:
“It is within the EMU fixed-exchange system—i.e. between Germany and Spain—that we see an (old) Gold Standard dynamic at work with all its destructive power, and the risk of sudden ruptures always present.
Therefore, Evans-Pritchard advises,
“The [current] global system [of fiat currencies] is supple. It bends to pressures.”
“Let gold will take its place as a third reserve currency,”
Evans-Pritchard wants to keep the fiat dollar and the fiat euro as the first two world reserve currencies and simply add gold as the third world reserve currency.
But, that’s never gonna happen—at least not for long.
We will have a monetary system that’s either based on gold or based on fiat currencies. Gold and fiat currencies are anathema; they can’t coexist. Once fiat paper is compelled to openly and directly compete against gold (and without any governmental manipulation of prices), the people will quickly learn to prefer gold so much more than fiat paper, that fiat paper will be seen as 2nd class at best, and perhaps be driven to extinction.
Evans-Pritchard praises the utility of gold as:
“one [of the three world reserve currencies] that cannot be devalued, and one that holds the others [fiat dollars and fiat euros] to account,”
But the whole idea of any fiat currency system is to allow governments to avoid being “held to account”. Big government depends on making big promises and then avoiding the resultant bills. Fiat currencies help governments rob their citizens and creditors. Big government depends on not being “held to account” and therefore big government—especially World Government—despises gold. Therefore, governments and central banks will not voluntarily allow gold to replace fiat currencies until after we see a near or complete economic collapse. But, as Evans-Pritchard observes, a new gold standard is emerging without the support or approval of big governments or central banks. I agree with him.
But I disagree with Evans-Pritchard’s belief that fiat currencies and gold could “cohabit” if gold were
“not so dominant that it hitches our collective destinies to the inflationary ups (yes, gold was highly inflationary after the Conquista) and the deflationary downs of global mine supply. That would indeed be a return to a barbarous relic.”
Gold “not so dominant”?
Gold has been “dominant” for three thousand years. To suppose that mankind will soon devise a sustainable monetary system that includes gold in a “less dominant” role is somewhat like supposing we can devise a new athletic event where gravity is not “so dominant”.
Gold may not be as historically “dominant” as gravity, but its monetary dominance is a strong second.
Evans-Pritchard apparently views gold as a “barbarous relic” but presumes that this “relic” might yet be “domesticated” so as to allow fiat currencies to continue to function effectively.
I doubt that such “domestication” is even possible. For me, gold is truth while fiat currencies are lies. In the end, the truth will out; the lies must perish.
Paper currency is always a lie. Government intends fiat currency to be a lie used for the purpose of robbing creditors. Government knows from the moment they start printing a fiat currency that it will inevitably run up a huge debt and then repudiate that debt and rob their creditors. Fiat currencies are created for the purpose of robbing citizens and creditors.
Nevertheless, Evans-Pritchard contends,
“A third reserve currency is just what America needs.”
That’s bunk. We don’t even have a second world reserve currency at this time, and Evans-Pritchard is advocating a third. It’s nonsensical.
If we used fiat dollars and fiat euros as two “reserve currencies” and then allowed gold to openly compete as a third “reserve currency,” the fiat currencies will be quickly lose their status as “reserve currency”—which is exactly (though more slowly) what’s happening now.
In this regard, Evans-Pritchard is right. The world is slowly moving into a de facto gold standard. So long as direct competition between gold and fiat currency can be avoided or at least minimized, the move back to a new gold standard will be fairly tedious and not too dramatic. But if gold were allowed to compete directly with fiat dollars and fiat euros, gold’s “dominance” would soon become so apparent, that the fiat currencies might quickly die.
The lies of fiat currency can’t compete with the truth of physical gold. The only way the fiat currencies and gold can coexist is if the gov-co intervenes to manipulate the price of gold (as they’ve done for the past 15 years) and thereby sustain the illusion of value in the fiat dollar.
But, stripped of its status as the one and only “world reserve currency,” the fiat dollar will become increasingly worthless, America will suffer hyper-inflation, economic collapse and then a return to a gold- or silver-based monetary system.
“As Prof Michael Pettis from Beijing University has argued, holding the world’s reserve currency is an ‘exorbitant burden’ that the US could do without.”
I’d agree that the United States might be infinitely improved if: 1) our fiat dollar were no longer the “world reserve currency”; 2) the fiat dollar was therefore admitted to be virtually worthless; and 3) our government was thereby compelled to return to a gold-based (and therefore honest) monetary system.
But government can’t abandon the “exorbitant burden” of “world reserve currency” without also allowing the fiat dollar to collapse.
So long as the fiat dollar has some perceived value, the printers of the fiat dollar have huge power limited only by the number of trees to make paper and the global supply of ink. That power is produced at the expense of the American people, but from the gov-co’s perspective, so what?
I don’t doubt that most Americans would dismiss my claim that government uses inflation to intentionally rob the American people as cynical and absurd. Conversely, I view people who trust any government as fools and cowards unwilling to face the truth.
Over 200 years ago, George Washington said “Government, like fire, is a dangerous servant or a fearful master.” That wasn’t merely a stylish analogy. Washington described a fundamental fact of life that’s been true for several thousand years. The best you ever get out of any earthly government is a “dangerous servant”.
Trust that servant and turn you back on it and it will morph into a “fearful master” that will reduce you to the status of slave in order to rob you and enhance its own powers.
Fiat currency and the inflation it allows aren’t accidents. Inflation (robbery) isn’t merely the result of some mathematical equations in the field of economics. Fiat currency and inflation are intended to rob the mass of people of any nation who are dumb enough to trust their government. The most reliable defense against that inflation/robbery is a gold-based monetary system that minimizes government corruption by preventing government from “spinning” currency out of thin air.
• Evans-Pritchard argued that having a single “world reserve currency” places an unreasonable burden on the US by citing,
“The Triffin Dilemma—advanced by the Belgian economist Robert Triffin in the 1960s—suggests that the holder of the paramount [fiat] currency faces an inherent contradiction. It must run a structural trade deficit over time to keep the [global, big government, fiat] system afloat, but this will undermine its own economy. The [global, big government, fiat] system self-destructs.”
Has America run a persistent trade deficit for the past 30 years? Does government management of our economy seem self-destructive? Yes . . . and yes.
Triffin was right. If a particular currency becomes the “world reserve currency,” that currency must be made available in en masse to the people of the nations of the world. In order to continuously distribute a mass of fiat dollars to the peoples of the world, the US government must maintain a persistant trade deficit wherein we import more than we export and therefore go deeper into debt. As we import more than we export and consume more than we produce, we send massive sums of fiat dollars to foreign countries which use them as a medium of transfer for international trade.
The problem with sending masses of dollars to foreign countries is that those foreign-held dollars might all come swarming back into the US at the same time. The inflationary impact on domestic prices would be huge and perhaps sufficient to collapse the US economy and/or the fiat dollar.
Triffin implied that once the fiat dollar assumed the status of world reserve currency, the US would start riding a tiger that could never be safely dismounted. Triffin was right. In the name of fostering a global economy and New World Order, our government subjected the fiat dollar to the status of world reserve currency and thereby jeopardized America’s economy, prosperity, currency and people.
The moment that Triffin feared corresponds to the alleged threat that China—after accumulating $1.2 trillion in US debt—might decide to suddenly dump that $1.2 trillion and collapse the fiat dollar. That particular threat is probably unreasonable, but it illustrates that the kind of dangers that Triffin warned against over 40 years ago could be real in the near future.
“A partial Gold Standard—created by the global market, and beholden to nobody—is the best of all worlds. Gold offers a store of value (though no yield). It acts as a balancing force. It is not dominant enough to smother the [global, big government, fiat] system.
And I say, let us have Pixie Dust so we can fly about the room like Peter Pan.
“Let us have three world currencies, a tripod with a golden leg. It might even be stable.”
I guarantee that we’ll all be covered with Pixie Dust before we see gold function officially and without manipulation as a third “world reserve currency”.
Even so, the fact that anyone advocates gold becoming a third world reserve currency is evidence that gold has already reached a de facto status as a world reserve currency. Once gold becomes a world reserve currency, it will soon become the world reserve currency. Once gold becomes the world reserve currency, the international use of fiat currencies will largely collapse.
That’s already happening. It’s happening slowly, but it’s happening. Now.

The New Inquisition
"No one expects the American Inquisition" (apologies to Monty Python). The Spanish Inquisition was said to be the worst time in the history of humanity, culminating in the Dark Ages, a time when man's forward evolution was stifled by fear. When all is said and done, it may be viewed as a "cakewalk" compared to today. There are striking similarities between that era of ignorance, pain and bloodshed and cause for hiding one's true beliefs, and now.
During the Spanish Inquisition, anyone who did not accept the authority of Pope Gregory IX was labeled a "heretic" and tortured until they renounced their own beliefs, or died. This was legitimized under a Papal Bull given to Isabella and Ferdinand of Spain. Today, the NDAA gives the same authority to various agencies of the United States government, against those who believe that they still live in a free country.
During the Spanish Inquisition, priests were given higher office (promotions) based on the number of heretics they could flush out of the general population. They stood in the square, looking for anyone they could call suspicious. They were helped by common citizens – perhaps a neighbor with whom you were having a dispute over the boundary lines of your land, or an envious woman who wanted to marry your husband when you were dead. Today we have the TSA jealously guarding their jobs by harassing and physically molesting the public as they are on their way to Grandma's or their next business meeting, the agent hoping that he or she will get a "gold star" by finding a "terrorist" within the long lines they have created at the airport. And they are helped by zealots who "say something" when they think the "see something" – even when all they see is a grandfather buying a book for his grandchild or having a heated discussion on their cellphone.
During the Spanish Inquisition, heretics were labeled as sick of the mind for not following the church's doctrines and the torture they suffered was "for their own good". Today, every human emotion, every opinion that does not match those of the government, is labeled as a mental illness (See DSM 5), to be cured with mind-numbing drugs or imprisonment in a "mental-health institution" where they can be "cured" of their malady and join "normal" society.
Although the Church had a strict policy of not shedding someone's blood, it was apparently perfectly alright to torture them beyond endurance to help them get into Heaven. After a while, the admonition against bloodshed was put aside as well. Today, local police departments are being trained to control the public in anticipation of martial law being instituted in the near future.
One of the tenets protected by the Inquisition was that nothing should be discussed that was not approved by the Church, vis á vis, that the world might be round, or that the Earth might not be the center of the Universe. (Copernicus and Galileo suffered for their ideas on this.) Today, if one – even a noted scientist – denies "global warming" is caused by thoughtless middle class people's cars, or if one propounds that a falling tower cannot collapse at faster than free-fall speed by itself, or that genetically modified food is detrimental to the human body, you are labeled as a "conspiracy theorist" – the modern version of a heretic. And the consequences are just as dire, although more insidious. You can be put on a "no-fly list", or even a "no-work list", and with the passage of the NDAA (the modern Papal Bull) you can be held indefinitely without legal representation, and even tortured for your opinions and beliefs. Torquemada would be proud.
Gutenberg could print only Bibles, lest he be arrested for the high crime of educating the masses by printing a scientific volume. Today the "mainstream" media disseminate only that information that has been approved – or supplied – by the government agencies who place their own spin on the hot topics of the day, which include large portions of sports and entertainment news.
One of the main reasons – although not commonly known – for the Spanish Inquisition was that the esoteric knowledge of the "Mystery Schools" of religion was coming once again to the surface. This re-emergence threatened "the powers that were at the time", i.e., the Church's stranglehold on most of the population. After all, if the Church wasn't the only path to "enlightenment" and Heaven, why would the people follow their strict, oppressive doctrines? Why would they obey the church's orders to work as slaves for the king who, in turn, gave his riches to the church? Today, TPTB want desperately to cause you to forget that we are all connected, that we are all part of the one universal energy. WE are the ones who are powerful. WE are the ones who can best take care of ourselves. WE are the ones who can determine what form our life should take, and direct our own path to enlightenment.
The knowledge that we are connected to and part of the one universal consciousness and can affect the direction in which the world goes by virtue of our intentions and actions, and that caring about each other (love) can overcome greed (fear) is something TPTB would dearly like to suppress. Don't allow the American – or Global – Inquisition to claim you as a victim, nor an inquisitor. Don't give your mind, or your beliefs, over to those who want to control you.
If this new Inquisition has replaced your opinion with a governmental spin line, it has done its job. If you live in fear of saying the wrong thing and that it might be traced from an email or phone conversation, it has done its job. If you rationalize to yourself that the decimation of free speech, free thought and a free life that does no harm to others is just the way things are today and that's alright because it keeps you safe from some unseen enemy, it has done its job. Just as in the time of the Spanish Inquisition, our evolution is being stifled by fear. Don't allow a return of the Dark Ages. It is up to you to make the present and future an age of light.

Life presents some subtle and significant situations. We need to pay attention and take appropriate action. We hear from political leaders that they want to work together, reach across the isle and find common ground. We are well aware of Washington 's attempt to resolve conflicts with rhetoric. The word rhetoric is spoken so often that I think it has lost some of its meaning. When was the last time you heard the debates on Capital Hill described as insincere eloquence to manipulate and win over the opposition? Indeed, politicians have the art of persuasion mastered; so much so that they may even believe their own lies. It is interesting that in the 15th century a drawing called Lady Rhetoric was displayed on Italian tarot cards. We don't need psychics or palm readers to tell us how the health of Americans will be affected in the next four years. The real question is what do you intend to do about it?
The whole idea of finding common ground is agreeing on some common interests. So, what do you do when a majority of the Congress and the President feel that America needs a complete overhaul from the foundations to the roof? Sounds like a very dramatic and expensive remodel and it looks like the government will spare no expense to accomplish this. Is America trading places with Russia ? Is America being remodeled into a socialist republic? Some who don't know their history may reason that America is a Republic that needs to replace traditional values with socialism. This remodel has been subtly happening for many years. If you disagree, just check the progress http://rense.com/general32/americ.htm.
The good book says there is nothing new under the sun and it is accurate. Just ask Nehemiah when Jerusalem was surrounded by enemies in the fourth chapter. Every able man was either a watchman on the wall or building the wall and all were armed wearing their swords on their hip. The enemy planned to conquer from within the city. Nehemiah instructed the people to not be afraid and to arm themselves and fight for their brethren, their sons, their daughters, their wives and their houses. Nehemiah warned against fear because fear was unbelief. The Bible is clear that there is no compromise with the wicked. There is no common ground. Righteous and sin cannot coexist anymore than light and darkness can (Matt 5:14-16, I John 1:5-7). People of faith are not pacifists as described in Heb 11:30-40. They did not tolerate the "death culture." When it is the darkest, your light will shine. God always honors the commitments of those who love Him.
Governments on their own do not provide anything; they must take from someone to give to another. I personally don't expect to see anything positive from a healthcare industry which is run by a government. Treatment which is given to one will be taken from another. It will be imperative for us all to be as proactive as possible in taking care of ourselves to preserve our health to avoid being at the mercy of a system. Light and darkness do not coexist. Likewise, natural medicine and prescription drugs work against each other. Make sure your natural approach to staying healthy involves organic food, clean water and certified organic herbs made without heat. Don't let anyone discourage you with mockery or intimidation. That is a telling sign that your opponents are desperate.
"Unless we put medical freedom into the Constitution, the time will come when medicine will organize into an undercover dictatorship to restrict the art of healing to one class of men and deny equal privileges to others; the Constitution of the Republic should make a special privilege for medical freedoms as well as religious freedom."
Benjamin Rush was a signer of the Declaration of Independence and Surgeon General to the Continental Army.
- Benjamin Rush (1746-1813)
America 's tradition is to draw near to God, our Creator when in need. God loves obedience better than sacrifice. He also does not like tyranny and instructs us to disobey tyranny. So, disobedience to tyranny is obedience to God. Romans 13, was written by Christians to Christians rulers. When the rulers do wickedly the people are not obligated to obey them. That is what Romans 13 instructs. God knew there would be a time when unrighteous rulers would attempt to destroy from within; just like in Nehemiah's time. So, we should all humble ourselves, repent and call on our Heavenly Father in faith believing to help us to stay healthy and to protect our brethren, sons, daughters, wives and homes. Less government – More Freedom!

Cholesterol and heart disease
by Ty Bollinger
Concerning the cholesterol and heart disease, there are thousands of HEALTHY 80+ year old folks with cholesterol levels in the 200's! The cholesterol "medical myths" are definitive proof of the labyrinth of lies propagated by Big Pharma. You see, the Medical Mafia is able to make the American "sheeple" believe just about anything, based on the methods outlined by Edwin Bernays.
Once a LIE is generally accepted by the people, thin it is considered to be "gospel truth." This is what happened with water fluoridation, vaccinations, and this is what has happened with cholesterol.
There are many "myths" associated with cholesterol, including:
• High-fat foods and cholesterol cause atherosclerosis leading to the obstruction of blood vessels in the heart
• Lowering your cholesterol will lengthen your life
• Polyunsatured oils are good for your health
• All scientists and doctors support the idea that high cholesterol causes heart disease
• Statin drugs are essential in controlling cholesterol levels and preventing heart disease
Believing all of these cholesterol myths, Americans decreased their intake of good fats and oils (like coconut oil, fish oil, olive oil) and started consuming more vegetable oils and margarine (a trans fat). This diet has CAUSED thousands of deaths from heart disease, as have the statin drugs which supposedly prevent heart disease, but in reality have numerous deleterious effects.
What are statin drugs and are they helpful or harmful? Statins are "HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors", that is, they act by blocking the enzyme (HMG-CoA reductase) in your liver that is responsible for making cholesterol. There are over 900 studies proving the adverse effects of statin drugs, including anemia, cancer, chronic fatigue, acidosis, liver dysfunction, thyroid disruption, Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, and even diabetes! Statins have been shown to increase your risk of diabetes through a few different mechanisms. The most important one is that they increase insulin resistance, which contributes to chronic inflammation (the common element of most diseases) and actually *RESULTS* in heart disease, which, ironically, is the primary reason for taking a cholesterol-reducing drug in the first place!
Of course, statins inhibit the production of cholesterol--they do this very well. Nowhere is the failure of our medical system more evident than in the wholesale acceptance of cholesterol reduction as a way to prevent disease--have all these doctors forgotten what they learned in Biochemistry 101 about the many roles of cholesterol in the human biochemistry? Every cell membrane in our body contains cholesterol because cholesterol is what makes our cells waterproof--without cholesterol we could not have a different biochemistry on the inside and the outside of the cell. When cholesterol levels are not adequate, the cell membrane becomes leaky or porous, a situation the body interprets as an emergency, releasing a flood of corticoid hormones that work by sequestering cholesterol from one part of the body and transporting it to areas where it is lacking. Cholesterol is the body's repair substance: scar tissue contains high levels of cholesterol, including scar tissue in the arteries.
Every cell of the body needs cholesterol to maintain the integrity of its cell membrane. Cholesterol makes the cell membrane more rigid but prevents it from crystallizing. Cholesterol is needed for the liver to make bile; it is the precursor for steroidal hormones (estrogen and testosterone), and in the presence of sunlight, the body can use the photolytic action of UV light on the cholesterol in the skin cells to make Vitamin D, which is essential for our immune system and also maintains the balance of calcium and phosphorus for strong bones and teeth.
Perhaps most importantly, cholesterol is an essential component in the machinery that triggers the release of neurotransmitters in the brain. Mother's milk is especially rich in cholesterol and contains a special enzyme that helps the baby utilize it. Babies and children need cholesterol-rich foods throughout their growing years to ensure proper development of the brain and nervous system. Cholesterol is very concentrated in the brain, where it contributes to the functioning of "synapses" (tiny gaps between cells which allow nerves to communicate with each other).
Cholesterol is the precursor to all the hormones produced in the adrenal cortex including glucocorticoids, which regulate blood sugar levels, and mineralocorticoids, which regulate mineral balance. Corticoids are the cholesterol-based adrenal hormones that the body uses in response to stress of various types; they promote healing and balance the tendency to inflammation. The adrenal cortex also produces sex hormones, including testosterone, estrogen and progesterone, out of cholesterol.

What's Ailing America?
GOVERNMENT FUNDED PSYCHOLOGICAL PROPAGANDA
by Rebecca Carley, MD
Yesterday was the inauguration. The traitors in the district of criminals wasted further millions of dollars to put on a show for the public, despite the fact they have already bankrupted us. They continue to spend billions on fake wars, multiple alphabet agencies which have been so corrupted that they actual protect the wrongdoers (allowing us to be poisoned every day), and giving "aid" to multiple countries (while more and more Americans go homeless and starving). What will it take for Americans to see the self evident truth that these traitors are destroying this countryon purpose? The destruction of America is necessary for the creation of the "new world order" that Bush 1 spoke of to Congress exactly 10 years before 9/11/01. (In my opinion, one of the best books on this subject is "The World Order; Our Secret Rulers" by Eustace Mullins).
These traitors put on their republican and democrat hats and posture that they are in "gridlock" as to whether they should increase taxes or decrease "entitlements" to decrease the national debt. Of course, their claim that "health care" costs are bankrupting the country is a total hoax, since as I have documented previously the bioweapon vaccines they promote are creating all disease under the "internal medicine" umbrella; and the big pharma "treatments" (the only option under the insurance system they have created) cure nothing, but rather cause increased symptoms called "side effects", genocide, depopulation. This is proof that there is no "free market" in America, as if there was, people would have the right to choose whether they wanted to use natural medicine instead of big pharma for their medical issues. (Note that Eustace Mullins has also written an amazing document explaining how the principal tool of Communist penetration in the United States is the pseudoscience of psychotherapy. Go to http://www.whale.to/b/mullins49.html to read "Sigmund Freud; Anti-Christ Devil".)
The most obvious treason being committed against the people by those in the district of criminals is allowing the (private) Federal Reserve to charge the government interest for printing federal reserve notes. This usury is being used all over the globe to control countries; in fact, Iran is one of the few holdouts to the IMF (which is the real reason they are being attacked). Another book by Eustace Mullins, "The Secrets of the Federal Reserve", is an excellent source of information as to how the banksters have used usury to take over America. Is there no solution? YES THERE IS! One very important story NOT being reported on the mainstream media is how in Iceland, the people have made the government resign, the primary banks have been nationalized, and they have proclaimed that the debt created is not legitimate and will NOT be paid back! http://americannationalmilitia.com/iceland-totally-repeaces WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF THE US & THE EU DID THE SAME THING? FREEDOM from the psychopaths that are destroying everything that matters.
In his inaugural psyops speech, the traitor in chief reiterated the usual BS about freedom, justice and the constitution. Hundreds of thousands of mind controlled idiots stood in the mall waving their little flags. How is it that everyone of them had a flag to wave? Where did they get them? What does that flag now stand for? To get an idea, please go to
http://thelightofdayradioshow.com/archives/RBN- BACKUP/New-RBN-Dr-Carley-Archives.html and listen to my show on 1/13/13 with a mom named Candi from Utah who has had 6 of her children kidnapped from her and her husband by child "protective" services. She is presently pregnant with her 7th child, and has been told that this child will also be confiscated when it is born. It is one of the most horrific cases I have ever heard of (besides my own). Of course, the mainstream media never covers these stories as to how government agencies have made kidnapping and emotional destruction of children into a business. You really need to hear this show, since if your child is in the "system" (i.e., has a birth certificate and a social security number), they belong to the state and could be confiscated under false pretences at any time. Just one of the "services" we pay taxes for.
As I was monitoring the inauguration "show", I happened onto free speech TV, where the documentary "Psywar" was being broadcast. You can watch the full documentary at
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nSh6qtoQkmU . Published on Aug 16, 2012, this film explores the evolution of propaganda and public relations in the United States, with an emphasis on the elitist theory of democracy and the relationship between war, propaganda and class. It is described as "a deep, richly illustrated study of the nature and history of propaganda, featuring some of the world's most insightful critics, Psywar exposes the propaganda system, providing crucial background and insight into the control of information and thought [and documents that $200 BILLION/year is spent on "PR Specialists" in the US]." It does give a very good history of Sigmund Freud's nephew, Edward Bernays, who was the primary spinmeister who helped to invent "public relations". (An excellent book on Bernays is "The Father of Spin" by Larry Tye.) I strongly suggest you watch this documentary, as it will show you how the disinfo crowd works! Because even though there is much truth, there is 10% disinfo .especially about Hitler, the Nazis & WW2. (The best source of the truth regarding Hitler and the Nazis, in my opinion, is Deanna Springola, whose radio program is on Monday-Friday, 11 am to 1 pm (CT) at www.republicbroadcasting.org .) She has written 2 excellent books on the psychopaths who control the world; "The Ruling Elite, a Study in Imperialism, Genocide and Emancipation" and "The Ruling Elite, the Zionist Seizure of World Power". Any homeschooling parent should, in my opinion, be using these books to teach their children history. This "psywar" technique of giving 90% truth & 10% disinfo has been perfected; how genius for a documentary on propaganda to include the biggest (historical) propaganda of all time; that about Hitler & the Nazis! The biggest MEDICAL propaganda of all time involves vaccines "preventing" disease (when they corrupt the immune system and cause all autoimmune diseases, non-traumatic seizures, cancer & genetic damage, in people and in pets). The disinfo specialists have infiltrated ALL autism groups, spreading the lie that mercury causes autism (and therefore if mercury is taken out of vaccines, they will be safe.) Just when it seems that the lies about vaccines can't get any more outrageous, I received this article where Bill Gates claims he is doing "God's work" by sending $Billions worth of bioweapon vaccines to third world countries (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/bill-gates/9812672/Bill-Gates-interview-I-have-no-use-for-money.-This-is-Gods-work.html ). This man is a eugenicist (as was his father before him), and he knows what vaccines are doing. For example, polio vaccines are CAUSING paralysis (http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2012/08/28/polio-eradication-campaign.aspx ). PLEASE SHARE THIS INFORMATION WITH OTHERS!
