Surveys Signal Move Towards Liberty

by Alfred Adask

One of the fundamental motives for people to buy gold is distrust of government. 
For some, that distrust is based on conspiracy theories and a belief in government’s malice.  For example, some see the federal government’s order for over 2 billion rounds of ammunition for “domestic consumption” (that’s 7 rounds for every living American) as evidence that the gov-co plans to intentionally collapse the economy, seize everyone’s bank accounts and institute martial law.

Others, however, distrust gov-co based on government’s incompetence.  I.e., they don’t believe that gov-co is conspiring to collapse the economy, seize everyone’s bank accounts and institute martial law.  Instead, they believe economic collapse, seized bank accounts and martial law will be the inevitable consequences of a government that’s simply too stupid to avoid such collapse.

But, no matter whether you distrust the government because it’s villainous or incompetent, one of the best “hedges” against “bad” government is gold. 

As the ranks of the distrustful swell, so should the demand for gold.  As demand increases, so should price.

Three recent surveys show the number of Americans who distrust government to be rapidly growing.

•  World Net Daily reports in “Americans Fear Government More than Terror,” that:
“According to a pair of recent polls, for the first time since the 9/11 terrorist hijackings, Americans are more fearful their government will abuse constitutional liberties than fail to keep citizens safe.”
Even after the Boston Marathon bombing—which killed three and wounded nearly 300—the polls indicate that many Americans are no longer willing to surrender their liberties in order gain increased “security.”

Fox News polled a random national sample of 619 registered voters the day after the Boston bombing and found Americans responded very differently than after 9/11:
“For the first time since a similar question was asked in May 2001 [before the 9/11 attacks], more Americans answered ‘no’ to the question, ‘Would you be willing to give up some of your personal freedom in order to reduce the threat of terrorism?’

“In May 2001, before 9/11, 40 percent answered no (they would not surrender more freedoms) to 33 percent answering yes (they would surrender more freedoms).

“But after the terrorist attacks of 9/11, the numbers flipped dramatically, to 71 percent agreeing to sacrifice personal freedom to reduce the threat of terrorism.”

[But] “Of those surveyed on April 16, 2013, 45 percent answered no to the question, compared to 43 percent answering yes.
For conspiracy theorists who believe that 9/11 was orchestrated by our government rather than Muslim terrorists, these surveys are evidence that the “false flag” 9/11 attacks worked.  I.e., the 9/11 attacks more than doubled the percentage of Americans willing to voluntarily surrender their liberty from 33% to 71%.  

In retrospect, that doubling was shameful insofar as it reminds us of Benjamin Franklin’s warning that, “They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety. 

Regardless of whether 9/11 was perpetrated by Muslim radicals or government fascists, too many American agreed to surrender their liberties, and thereby helped dramatically expand America’s police state.

Fox News continued, reporting that after the first post-9/11 poll in A.D. 2001,
“. . . subsequent polls asking the same question in 2002, 2005 and 2006 found most Americans consistently willing to give up freedom in exchange for security. Yet the numbers declined from 71 percent following 9/11 to only 54 percent by May 2006.”
On one level, it’s bad news that any Americans would be willing to surrender their liberties for security.

But the good news is that after the initial shock of 9/11, Americans have grown increasingly unwilling to surrender their liberty for some alleged security.  Prior to the 9/11 attack, only 33% were willing to trade liberty for security.  After 9/11, 71% would welcome the police state to protect them from terrorists.  Today, just 43% would opt for greater “security” (a police state). 

The adverse effects of 9/11 have been almost completely erased from the public psyche.  Laws like the Patriot Act (passed in A.D. 2001) could not be passed today.  If the number of Americans rejecting the police state’s security and opting for liberty continues to grow, the Patriot Act might even be repealed in the next few years.

More, it’s interesting to note that while the 9/11 attacks doubled the number of people willing to surrender their liberties, the Boston Marathon bombing seemed have little or no effect.  Having seen three large buildings fall and a hole punched in the Pentagon on 9/11, perhaps Americans are no longer impressed by a mere pressure cooker bomb in Boston.

Suppose that were true.  Suppose it were true that government rather than Muslims, was the real culprit behind 9/11.  Then it would follow that if some element the government wanted to once again inspire the public’s fear and willingness to surrender their freedoms, the government would have to orchestrate a terrorist event much greater than 9/11.  In order to sufficiently impress and motivate Americans to surrender more freedoms, there’d probably have to be several significant “terrorist” attacks that took place simultaneously in several different American cities. 

But even then, would the American people again surrender more freedoms?   

The Fox News poll analyzed the responses by political affiliation.   Of today’s Democrats polled, 51% of would give up personal freedom to reduce the threat of terror, compared to 36% opposed.  Among Democrats there’s a strong preference for security rather than liberty.

Of Republicans polled, 43% would agree to surrender freedoms in exchange for security while  47% would not. Thus, Republicans were more or less evenly divided on the issue of freedom vs. security.

However, of independents responding, only 29% were willing to sacrifice freedom, while 58% were opposed.  Thus, the majority of independent voters favor of liberty and oppose the alleged “security” of an overt police state.

If independents are the “swing vote” in the A.D.2014 election, it may be that the party or candidates who are most opposed to a growing police state may win the independents’ votes.

•  The Washington Post recently conducted a similar poll:
“‘Which worries you more,’ the Post asked, ‘that the government will not go far enough to investigate terrorism because of concerns about constitutional rights, or that it will go too far in compromising constitutional rights in order to investigate terrorism?’

“The poll found 48 percent of respondents worry the government will go too far, compared to 41 percent who worry it won’t go far enough.”
Again, we see evidence of America’s growing distaste for the police state.  That growth could be a primary issue in next year’s elections.

•  CNSNews.comreports (“Poll: 29% of Registered Voters Believe Armed Revolution Might Be Necessary in Next Few Years”) that,
Twenty-nine percent of registered voters think that an armed revolution might be necessary in the next few years in order to protect liberties, according to a Public Mind poll by Fairleigh Dickinson University.”
What a mind-boggling result!  29% of registered American voters believe that a shooting revolution might soon be necessary to protect our freedoms from our own government!

Think of it!  Almost one American in three believes that government has gone, or will soon go, too far to reduce our freedoms and may have to be stopped with gunfire.  One in three!
“The poll, focused on both gun control and the possibility of a need for an armed revolution in the United States to protect liberty.

“The survey asked whether respondents agreed, disagreed, neither agreed nor disagreed or did not know or refused to respond to the statement: ‘In the next few years, an armed revolution might be necessary in order to protect our liberties.’”
29% agreed, 47% disagreed, 18% neither agreed nor disagreed, 5% said they were unsure, and 1% refused to answer.  A majority of Americans apparently doubt that an armed revolution may soon be necessary. But a significant minority (one in three) believe that an armed revolution could be coming. 

(I guarantee that most of the 29% who anticipate a shooting revolution are, or will soon be, in the market for gold.   Why?  Because that 29% must distrust government, and distrust of government is a primary motive for buying gold.)

This Public Mind poll also tracked results according to political party affiliation.  Those who believed that a shooting revolution might soon take place were 18% of Democrats, 27% of Independents and 44% of Republicans.

More, the poll found that 62% of those who believe a revolution might be necessary reject  additional gun control legislation compared to 38% of those who doubt that an armed revolt will take place.
“Dan Cassino, a professor of political science at Fairleigh Dickinson and analyst for the poll, says:

"‘The differences in views of gun legislation are really a function of differences in what people believe guns are for.  If you truly believe an armed revolution is possible in the near future, you need weapons and you're going to be wary about government efforts to take them away."
Exactly.  The purpose for the 2nd Amendment is implied in the “Preamble to the Bill of Rights” which explains the primary purpose for all ten Amendments comprising the Bill of Rights.  That purpose was to prevent the “misconstruction or abuse” of the “powers” of the Constitution.

I have no “powers” under the Constitution.  The only people who have “powers” under the Constitution are our federal politicians, appointed officials and employees. 

Thus, the true purpose of the 2nd Amendment is not to protect the right go duck hunting, deer hunting or target shooting.  The right to keep and bear arms is not even intended to protect us against robbers, rapists or other “private” assailants.  It’s only intended to protect us against our own federal government.

That purpose undoubtedly sounds radical and perhaps even too fantastic to believe to most people.  But if you Google “Preamble to the Bill of Rights” you’ll find that document, and if you read closely, you’ll see that the purpose for the Bill of Rights—including the 2nd Amendment—was to prevent “misconstruction or abuse” of the “powers” of the Constitution. 

I doubt that many Americans understand the Founders’ express purpose for the Bill of Rights (including the 2nd Amendment).  And yet, here we see a Public Mind survey indicating that, 29% of Americans anticipate a shooting revolution may soon be required and therefore want to hang onto their firearms.  I’m fascinated by that number.  29% of us seem to intuitively grasp the 2nd Amendment’s express purpose:  fighting a corrupt and treasonous federal government.

•  Those who distrust government can find some encouragement the three, previously-mentioned surveys.  

Those of us who distrust government typically think of ourselves as being virtually alone in their anti-government sentiments.  Those who distrust government tend to think of themselves as only a tiny minority.  As such, we tend to keep our sentiments to ourselves because we’re too embarrassed to speak out and be thought of as some sort of “kook”. 

But the three recent polls indicate that roughly one-third of all adult Americans also distrust and even fear the federal government.  That distrust and fear is sufficient to cause one-third to believe a shooting revolution may soon be required to protect our liberties from our own government.

I’m not saying they’re right.

But I am saying that if one-third of Americans are so distrustful of government that they anticipate a shooting revolution, then there are nearly 100 million Americans who already believe that government has gone too far—and plans to go further—down the road into a police state and overt tyranny.

Thus, 100 million Americans are aware of, or at least sympathetic to, the principle expressed in the Declaration of Independence that ". . . when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security."

100 million.

We are not alone.  The ideas, attitudes and concerns shared on this newsletter and hundreds more like it are not only proliferating but are far more common than most people imagine.  Those of us who distrust the government and fear for our nation’s future are not the "lunatic fringe".  We are mainstream and growing stronger.

We are winning.

We are winning the war for the hearts and minds of the American people.  The momentum is in our favor. The three polls cited tell us that the government is losing public confidence.

Those of you who distrust government needn’t be afraid to speak out on your concerns about liberties lost to the growing police state.   Those of us who distrust government may not yet be in the majority, but we are far too numerous to be ignored or easily ridiculed.  

The only thing that restricts our ability to stop the police state is our lack of awareness of the true potency and popularity of the principles we advocate and the true strength of the "movement" to once again limit government and restore Liberty.  So long as we think of ourselves as a tiny minority, we're going nowhere.  But, once we begin to see that we are a major segment in society (and soon, a majority), we'll start to act like it, stop apologizing for our seemingly small size, and begin to take control.  Once we take control, we can begin right this government.

If the three polls previously presented are accurate, they imply that the A.D. 2014 election may turn on the issue of Liberty.  If so, candidates opposed to the police state and even a third political party devoted to the restoration of Liberty could win in A.D. 2014.

(And somewhere down the line—maybe not so long from now—there might even be trials for treason.)

No Safe Place - Part One

This article will explain – in simple terms – the reasons why various paper promises to pay will probably fail faster than the Federal Reserve Note inflates – whether the nation completely comes apart or not.  I wanted to split this into two equal-sized articles, but decided it would be best to put all but two reasons in the first article.  I apologize for its length.

I am not an investment expert – nor am I a financial adviser.  I am a veteran of stock market investing – and see things through the ‘eyes’ of an amateur economist.  This information is for your education, and you can verify it. 

The banksters – whose influence goes worldwide – manipulate 1) the value of the ‘dollar’ (Federal Reserve Note) and most major world currencies – 2) the price of gold, silver, and most major commodities – 3) the value of most major stocks – 4) the value of a large chunk of the bond market through central bank interest manipulation.  They also control most major insurance companies, and their stated goal is to bring almost total ruination to this nation.  They have all but one investment base – covered.  (Do you know which one?) 

The information we get from our ‘education’ system – our mainstream media – even many of our trade associations and churches – is also greatly controlled by these same people.  Stockbrokers have a vested interest in keeping you in paper investments.  It has been stated that banksters control about 70% of the assets in this nation.  This explains why most of America is totally clueless about what is actually going on around them. 

Let me tick off the factors that are going to create the perfect economic storm – the biggest in world history.  And – rather than write out Federal Reserve Note – I will use the acronym – FRN.  So – where do you put your money?

  BANKS: are supposedly – supposedly – the most conservative, safe place to put money – whether in an account or Certificate of Deposit – CD.  Banks – even your local bank – are in the business of creating ‘money’ out of thin air because they can loan out many times the quantity of deposits people have put into the bank.  How any institution that is engaged in the business of creating and selling ‘money’ made out of ledger entries – computer keystrokes – and collect interest on it is beyond me – but many banks have failed.  

We’ve been told – since the 1930s – that the FDIC – Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation – insured our bank accounts – so that the bank failures that marked the 1930s would never take any more depositor money!  Fact: The FDIC never had enough money to cover all the deposits in banks!  Right now – it has about 25 billion FRNs – and there are nine trillion FRNs in bank accounts.

That means that the FDIC has about a quarter of one penny to cover every FRN – in your bank account!  Imagine that you had a $100,000 house – and you bought insurance for that house from an insurance company that only had a net worth of $250.  Would that be a good idea?  That – is the state of affairs inside the FDIC.  I’m also under the impression that the FDIC is invested in stocks and bonds – but due to the nature of the people who set up and run the FDIC – I don’t believe anything they tell us. 

Also – not long ago – the International Monetary Fund – orderedthe government in Cypress to take most of the money in Cypress banks.  People aimed their ire at the Cypress government.  The whole world needs to aim their anger at the IMF – located in Washington, DC.  Most governments in the world are under the control of the IMF, and many have written plans or made announcements that they would do the same thing – if they deem it necessary.  Get the bulk of your FRNs out of the bank!       

  T-BILLS: are supposedly very safe.  Fact: They aren’t selling because they are a very bad investment.  They have a very low rate of return – particularly compared to the rate of (increasing) inflation.  If – if – the Fed raises the rate of return in order to make them more attractive as an investment, that will crash the stock market – something I’ll explain in a bit. 

  BONDS: are considered to be extremely safe investments.  They are nothing more than fancy IOUs.  A few decades ago, a lot of ‘junk bonds’ found their way onto the market – and they failed.  A year or two ago – maybe three – a little-known insurance company went broke.  The mainstream media said nothing about it, and most financial newsletters ignored it or made little note of it.  The name of the company: AMBAC. 

AMBAC was engaged in the business of insuring municipal bonds – referred to as ‘munis’ in the investment business – tax-free municipal bonds – very attractive to folks in high tax brackets. 

Let’s say – that you’re the mayor of a town called – Podunk.  You and the city council get together and decide that you need some kind of ‘capital improvement’ – maybe a building – maybe you need to extend a sewage collection system for examples.  You decide to ‘float a bond’ – get a loan – and the voters approve.  You list out Podunk’s assets and liabilities – pay a CPA to rubber-stamp it.  Then – you go to a bond insurance company – lay more money down – and they agree to pay the bond if the city can’t pay it – bond insurance.  Then, you go to Moody’s or Standard and Poors – bond rating agencies – pay them money so they’ll put a top rating on the bond because it has been insured!  Then, you sell it on the market. 

All looks well.  But – what if that bond insurance company was AMBAC – and you or your retirement fund bought that bond – and Podunk started to lose its tax base in an economy that was – shrinking?  There are a whole lot of cities, counties and states that are bankrupt – by Generally Accepted Accounting Procedure (GAAP) standards.  They just haven’t declared bankruptcy – yet – and the only difference between bankruptcy and declaring bankruptcy is – a declaration.  When those bonds come due – they won’t be paid.  You will get whatever the bankruptcy court decides – after the federal ‘government’ – lawyers and courts get their ‘take.’ 

There are also a lot of bonds – called MBSs.  That stands for Mortgage Backed Security – bonds that probably aren’t worth twenty percent of what they’re supposedly worth – along with ‘CDOs’ (Collateralized Debt Oblitions) and ‘SIVs’ (Structured Investment Vehicles).  I’ll let you research those acronyms.  Europe’s banking system is collapsing – and many of their government bonds are becoming worth less and less.  There are many retirement plans – banks and insurance companies and even a number of other corporations that have invested in what I call – junk bonds!  The bond market is HUMUNGOUS compared to the stock market – and the bond market will – crash. 

And I haven’t even touched on ‘derivatives’ – the description of which is beyond the scope of this article.  They are nothing more than extremely high stake – bets – gambling. 

Bottom line: Many bonds are – junk – no matter who says what about them.  You must understand that the rating agencies and financial newsboys are controlled by the same crowd that controls almost all public investment options in this nation – as well as most of the western world’s finances.

The worldwide bond market crash will be a very big part of the biggest economic collapse in world history.  Get your money out of municipal bonds in particular and any investment that is invested in bonds.  That includes many mutual funds, and your retirement account – if you have one.    

STOCKS: First of all, the Dow Jones is a totally manipulated – number.  The companies that comprise the list are selected – and most major stocks are greatly controlled by the same banking cartel that runs our western financial world.

From the beginnings of stock markets, heavy investors have made prices go up – and go down – and w/o going into details, they know how to make money going either direction – IF THEY KNOW OR CONTROL THE MOVEMENTS – UP AND DOWN. 

Anybody who knows which way a particular stock will go – can make money by knowing which way it will go.  Many times, heavy hitters collude – make trades – that will run the stock up or down to their advantage and the small investors’ disadvantage.   

The SEC (Securities Exchange Commission) was supposedly set up to oversee the stock market – to keep people from engaging in price-manipulating schemes.  The people who set up the SEC – the banksters who had gained control of our government – control SEC enforcement.  Insider trading has always gone on by the heaviest hitters – but the SEC only enforces rules and regulations against smaller players to deceive you into thinking they’re doing their jobs.  

So – do you think that your money is safe in mutual fund stocks – managed by ‘professionals’?  Mutual funds are yet another curtain that money-manipulators can hide behind.  Their first job is to get you to trust them - - -

Four more factors: 1) it makes no sense for a stock market to go up when unemployment is going up and personal income is going down.  That tells me it’s propped up on toothpicks.  2) A whole lot of Quantitative Easing ‘money’ has been poured into the stock market.  If/when it stops, the stock market will crash.  3) A lot of Wall Street companies depend on ‘cheap money’ – low interest rates – from the Federal Reserve to keep going from month-to-month.  If the Fed raises the interest rate, those companies will go into the tank.  4) When a country goes into ‘social unrest’ – stock markets invariably tumble.

I see nothing but huge red flags – flying above Wall Street!  Get your money out!  

INSURANCE: Most insurance companies are heavily invested in stocks and bonds.  Very few have invested in precious metals.  As the bond and stock markets fail – these insurance companies will have much less money to cover losses.  Add to that – another simple fact – and I’ll use homeowners insurance for the example.  Lets say – that ten percent of the houses an insurance company insures – get burned to the ground during ‘civil unrest.’  No insurance company that I know of could sustain that kind of loss.  Insurance companies – just like the FDIC – do not have enough money to cover all the losses they’re exposed to.  Do NOT depend on an insurance company – being there – when you most need them.

SOCIAL SECURITY: If you think that your ‘money’ will be there for you in the not-so-distant future – you’re nuts.  You will either be paid in ‘dollars’ that are worth less and less – at an increasing rate of ‘less’ – or – the whole Social Security system (that is in fact a corporation) just might declare bankruptcy.  I’ll cover the FACT that almost all of our American ‘governments’ and their agencies are – in fact – privately controlled – for-profit – CORPORATIONS – in another article.  Social Security isn’t even So-So security. 

RETIREMENT ACCOUNTS: whether you’re part of a company retirement system – or have an Individual Retirement Account (IRA) – your retirement is in serious danger – unless – unless – it has large percentage invested in gold and/or silver – very rare – today.  If you have an IRA – talk to Melody.  She can set you up so that you can own gold and/or silver. 

If you have a company-run retirement – it is most likely invested in stocks and bonds.  After they tank, do you think they’ll have the money to pay you?  I’ll leave it at that.

I’m not an investment counselor, but if I were retired – owned my home – got Social Security – and had a company retirement account – no other investments – I’d think real hard about selling the house to 1) invest in gold and/or silver – 2) move into an apartment – so 3) you’ll have something to eat.

If you have a company retirement account, it is sitting on top of a house of cards - - - and you will fall the farthest of all if you’re depending on Social Security and a company retirement plan – to eat.  Many such plans have already failed.  Ask any General Motors retiree - - -

THE CAFR FUNDS – AND – THE PATRIOT MYTH: The CAFR (means Comprehensive Annual Financial Report – an accounting term) issue is not well understood.  A few years ago, a patriot – who apparently knew very little about accounting – told the patriot community that we had ALL KINDS OF MONEY – that had been stolen from us.  In part, that was true – but the whole CAFR story was not told – and the incomplete story was overblown in the patriot community.  I even wrote to the guy – explained everything to him – but he kept talking about untold gobs of money – implying that all we had to do was get it – I suppose.

I’ve known about government CAFRs since the ‘80s.  Anybody who has read and understood any corporate financial statement – understands what a CAFR is.

Trillions of ‘dollars’ are squirreled away in funds owned by state and local governments.  I was told – back then – that this was money being held for retirements and such.  I crunched some numbers.  It made perfect sense.

A CAFR tells the whole financial story – not just the budget – which is what the politicians always talk about.  It includes ‘off-budget’ and ‘on-budget’ information – income and outgo – liabilities and assets.

Governments don’t try to hide them.  I got my hands on the 2009 CAFR for West Virginia by asking the state to send one to me.  They sent it – no charge – nice spiral bound publication.  I dug through it.  It was a lot harder for me to understand than one I had read – long ago.  But – in black and white – bunches and bunches of state funds are full of MBSs – meaning Mortgage Backed Securities.  I’m sure there was also a variety of other – what I call – junk bonds.  If you have a government retirement fund – it has most likely already been robbed in this fashion if not some other fashion.  

REAL ESTATE: Next time, I’ll go into two very – very – serious reasons not to invest in real estate – unless it 1) has some farmland with it that has 2) not been mortgaged in the past decade or so – and 3) it must be outside any jurisdiction that has ‘adopted’ the International Property Maintenance Code (IPMC).  The fraudulent mortgage scam – and the IPMC RIPOFF (I don’t know which one is worst) – are the second and third biggest scams in US history – carefully designed to steal real estate!  Both stories are so outlandish that most people can’t believe that they’re true – but they’re playing out – right now!  This information will be utterly startling for those who don’t already know it. 

  Now, if you have any faith in the Federal Reserve Note – or its value – what I will tell you next will totally destroy that faith.  For decades – the Federal Reserve has taken ‘worn out’ Federal Reserve Notes – supposedly slated for destruction – and they have used these ‘worn out’ Federal Reserve Notes to pay off criminals – stateside and overseas – by the pallet-load!  This should explain why most of our hundred ‘dollar’ bills are so nice and crisp - - - and when all that ‘money’ comes rushing back to America as the value of the ‘dollar’ drops – it will drive our inflation rate even farther – through the roof!

I’ll take this a step farther.  If our government declares unconstitutional martial law – unconstitutional executive orders are already in place – that tells them that they can steal anything they want to steal!!!  Do a ‘net search with four words: Martial law executive orders.

From listening from bankster-collapse refugees, the only safe place for anything is where ‘they’ can’t find it.  Now what do you suppose – is the best way to hide real assets?  What form they should be in?

And, just for the record, these refugees said that roving mobs and rogue troops tortured people to learn where their ‘stuff’ was hidden – so be prepared to defend – yourself! 

I am surely considered an enemy of the state because I have told a lot of otherwise little-known truths about our ‘governments’ – to any who would listen.  I know that I am further endangering my life by saying all of this to you – but I do so out of love for my fellow man.

I am not paid to write these articles.  I volunteered to do so – for you - - - whoever you are.    

And what do I want you to do?  Get some gold and/or silver by giving Melody a call.  Pass this e-mail along to those you care about.  If they’re asleep – something – will wake them up!  If they’re half-awake – these articles will pour a whole lot of hot espresso – right down their gullets.

Shalom – and please – if you’re not already ‘right with God’ – spend a little time in prayer with Him – OK?

The Other Immune System
by Herbalist Wendy Wilson

You've probably been hearing yogurt commercials about how your digestive tract carries a majority of the immune system protection for the human body. Scientists haven't always understood why our bodies prefer good bacteria. Research has sprung to the forefront on how important the human gut is. Back in 2000 in my book, The Power Herbs, I wrote that the bowel is the body's most important organ. How could the intestines of the digestive tract be all that important? Probiotics (which mean pro life) have become a household word in the US and has been added to product packaging. Where do we get this the good bacteria; are we born with it? We first pick up the good flora (bacteria) in the birth canal. As babies this bacteria helps us to develop an immune system and counter the bad food borne bacteria that can make us sick. This is the healthy flora (good bacteria) helps our immune system to identify and kills potentially dangerous pathogens. In other words, the good bacteria help to train your immune system.


The human body has a small and large intestine. In males the small intestine is approximately 22.6 feet in length and in females is approximately 23.4 feet. The large intestine in males and females is about 5 feet long. So, we have about 27 to 28 feet of a hollow organ called intestines. Our immune system needs nutrients and if your gut is not functioning well we can miss out on absorbing the nutrition we need and our immunity can suffer.


There are foods that dramatically affect the intestinal tract and hinder the function of this very important organ. If your lifestyle contains processed sugar and dairy products, you will eventually have a bowel that will be sluggish and coated in mucous. This would represent a sick bowel. The human bowel was made to digest mostly raw foods such as nuts, seeds, fruit and vegetables. Cooking foods change the molecules and change an organic foods source into an inorganic one. How you cook is also important as some studies have shown that microwave foods contain a carcinogen risk. Steaming and baking, broiling or roasting is a much safer way to prepare meats and fish.


Consumers will rush to their store to stock up on the latest fad yogurt to pump good bacteria (probiotics) into the digestive tract. Yogurt can be made with probiotic bacteria (acidophilus being one) but the heat yogurt endures during processing leaves the product with few if any live good bacteria. The homogenized process is hot enough to kill the good flora but not hot enough or long enough to kill the bad bacteria. That is why smart folks are skipping the yogurt and opt for a probiotic supplement instead. 


The term antibiotic means against life and it destroys the good bacteria with the bad. Unfortunately not all the bad bacteria are killed off and infectious agents develop a resistance. With antibiotics we get the digestive bacteria off balance allowing yeast to overgrow increasing our risk for digestive diseases such as IBS, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia etc.  


You know you can make your own probiotic food. Pickled beets, Chem chi and sauerkraut offer the fermented good flora the digestive tract needs without getting your pH off. The human body prefers the good flora from vegetable food rather than from a supplement.


Why all of a sudden is science telling us that 70% of our immune system is located in the digestive tract? The bowel has lymph tissue known as "gut associated lymphatic tissue" (GALT). Apparently how the gut trains the immune system is that the good bacteria will interact with the lymphatic tissue stimulating it to connect with bad bacteria in order to manufacture antibodies. Science thinks that our bowel from birth to age seven is in constant immune system training.


What controls the digestive tract? We do every time we eat or drink we put into our body foods that will either enhance or destroy the good bacteria. Live enzymes from organic foods will add health to the bowel and longevity to your wellbeing. You don't need fad yogurt or probiotic pills to be healthy. You need a healthy lifestyle. Part of the healthy lifestyle will include some system cleansing and immune boosting from time-to-time. We live in a toxic age and just eating right and exercising won't be enough.  Remember the American lifestyle is heavy on meat and light on vegetables and fruit. Flipping that scenario where we are heavy on the vegetables and fruit and light on the animal meat will help to balance digestive flora and keep the bowel healthy. You can start by countering any bad eating habits with an organic apple. The fiber and pectin in the apple will enhance transit time in the digestive tract and help reduce your risk of colon cancer. Eat an apple every day and you can lose 10 pound in a year. 


You can help tone up the bowel and improve your immunity with bowel cleansing. You can cleanse as often as once a quarter. If that is outside of your health plans, at least fit it in twice annually. You will be amazed at how a bowel cleanse can make some of your other health problems melt away. For instance, a customer of min from Chicago wrote in to tell me; "After finishing the Bowel Cleanse program I noticed my skin blemishes fading away and my energy level increased." God's herbs are good and it won't take long to see that tapping into the healing power of herbs can get you over the hump and onto a more vital and lively life.

What's Ailing America:
Disaster Capitalism and Treason - Part 2

by Rebecca Carley, MD

While most of the mind controlled lemmings in America are watching "Dancing with the Stars" or the "Correspondent's Dinner" (where politicians, "journalists" and Hollywood celebrities get together to make jokes about what is going on), the good news is that citizen investigators are bringing the truth to light about massive treason being committed by all 3 branches of government to destroy this country and bring us into the New World Order; a hell which is now right in our faces.  In fact, even C Span (whose moderators have wires in their ears where their handlers tell them to cut callers off who ask hard questions) had a barrage of callers   calling the "Boston bombing" a FALSE FLAG whose purpose was to psychologically prepare Americans for martial law and a total police state: 

C-SPAN Faces Barrage Of Callers About Boston Bombing False Flag

Hopefully this woke up a few listeners to at least do further research.

I have received so many e-mails with outstanding articles about this obvious false flag event.  I included many of them in last week's newsletter; I hope you checked out the links.  A new one that I found very impressive was the following:

QUESTION: Why no ambulances? Why no fire trucks? Why no stretchers? Why ZERO real emergency response? - Read article

Of course, this is only the beginning. The ultimate in terror is a "dirty" (i.e., nuclear) attack.  As we have been shown many times, Hollywood is used to show us what is coming.  The psychopathic Luciferians who control our world show us in movies what they are up to.  Please check out

Hollywood Announces 6/22/2013 Nuclear Terrorism

Read article

Of course, millions of Americans who have radioactive nuclides injected into them in nuclear medicine labs in hospitals become human dirty bombs, as evidenced in Chicago in March:

Read article.  Should a Muslim person set off radiation detectors in any such venue, I predict they will claim that the person injected themselveswith radioactive materials to transform themselves into a human dirty bomb. How many brain dead Americans, even those who have had nuclesr medicine tests themselves, would buy these lies?

A very common reaction of people with conscience who are confronted with the truth of what is going on is to refuse to accept the self evident fact that the people who control the world are psychopaths, who by definition have NO conscience.  In fact, the medical psychopaths study the brains of other psychopaths to find the difference in their brains:

Psychopaths' Brain Patterns Lack Means for Empathy, Reveals Neuroimaging Study

Then, they do studies to see how they can remove "moral judgment" from those who do have a conscience:

Changing Minds - Disrupting brain activity with magnets can alter moral judgments

HAVE YOU HAD A MRI OF YOUR BRAIN?  Magnetic pulses are utilized during MRI's

Author Harris Coulter, in his book  "Vaccinations, Social Violence and Criminality" published in 1990 gives irrefutable evidence as to how vaccines can also create psychopaths if the brain damage occurs in the area of the brain (limbic system, amygdala, hippocampus) which controls how one reacts (i.e., with rage and violence vs being docile).  In case you are wondering why bullying is such a problem with young people today, you definitely need to acquire and read that book ( )

The psychopaths in government are so concerned that your children will not be vaccinated (and thus not brain damaged) that they will track the refuseniks:

Government Funded Phone App Tracks "Vaccine Refusers"

What is the endgame?  This is documented in the UN's Agenda 21:
