The Wealth of Nations
vs. the Debts of Government
by Alfred Adask for Discount Gold & Silver Trading
The Wealth of Nations—written by Adam Smith and published in A.D. 1776—is generally regarded as the first book to not only explore, but to lay the foundation for, the study of economics.
Given my fixation on the size, “unpayablity” and adverse consequences of our massive national debt, I decided to review Smith’s chapter on “Public Debts”. The text, being almost 250 years old, is a little hard to read. Even so, Smith offers amazing insights into the “sovereign debt” problems we face today.
As it turns out, the problems of national debt—and the solutions thereto—have been virtually identical for thousands of years. These similarities are important because they indicate that today’s national or “sovereign” debt problems are not exceptional or unprecedented (except, perhaps, in terms of magnitude) and the solutions to these problems will be virtually identical to the solutions practices for centuries: default.
Smith implies that today’s debt-ridden governments have knowingly advocated the same self-serving and self-destructive financial policies that debt-addicted governments have advocated for centuries.
We’re not facing an economic collapse due to unforeseen circumstances. We’re facing the same sort of economic calamity that’s plagued scores of nations for centuries. Why? Because all governments ultimately prefer to be popular rather than responsible. Governments habitually buy the public’s approval with “free” benefits paid for by (secretly) going deeper and deeper into debt. Eventually, even the interest on the debt becomes too great to be repaid. Then, governments always default and thereby rob and defraud their creditors. According to Smith, that’s been true for centuries. It seems still true today.
According to Smith:
• “The want of parsimony in time of peace imposes the necessity of contracting debt in time of war. When war comes, there is no money in the treasury but what is necessary for carrying on the ordinary expence of the peace establishment. In war an establishment of three of four times that expence becomes necessary for the defence of the state, and consequently a revenue three or four times greater than the peace revenue.”
In other words, virtually all governments are too irresponsible during peace time to save enough money for future emergencies like war. If money comes in during times of peace, government spends it quickly to maintain public support. Result? When war comes, governments are broke, won’t raise taxes and alienate their people, and therefore have no choice but to borrow money to finance their war.
From this phenomenon, we can infer that bankers, eager to lend to “risk-free” governments and generate interest, have a vested interest in fomenting wars.
More, Smith’s observations concerning ancient governments’ reluctance to save during the good times, parallels a fundamental and practical flaw in today’s Keynesian economics. Keynes sought to balance out the highs and lows of the business cycle by raising taxes and saving revenue during the good years and spending those saving to mitigate or overcome the bad years. Unfortunately, politicians who love the Keynesian theory also hate raising taxes or savings during the good years. Therefore, governments must borrow to “stimulate” the economy during the bad years. Politicians who want to be “big spenders” during the good years are inevitably broke and compelled to borrow “big time” during inevitable emergencies. Therefore, in practical application, Keynesian theory—which depends on taxing and saving in the good years—fails.
• “A country abounding with merchants and manufacturers necessarily abounds with a set of people through whose hands not only their own capitals, but the capitals of all those who either lend them money, or trust them with goods, pass as frequently, or more frequently, than the revenue of a private man, who, without trade or business, lives upon his income, passes through his hands. . . . A country abounding with merchants and manufacturers, therefore, necessarily abounds with a set of people who have it at all times in their power to advance, if they choose to do so, a very large sum of money to government.”
I.e., governments can’t borrow from people who don’t save. Ordinary working people live hand-to-mouth and tend not to have savings. The only people the government can historically borrow from are merchants and manufacturers who understand that savings (“capital”) are the key to prosperity.
Thus, governments historically have had a vested interest in increasing the number of merchants and manufacturers in order to create a larger class of potential lenders. More, governments normally had a vested interest in embracing the merchants’ and manufacturers’ values. So long as the government must rely on merchants and manufacturers, it must also be as responsible as merchants and manufacturers in its handling of money.
I.e., merchants and manufactures necessary know the value of a “dollar” (that would be a gold or silver dollar). They won’t generally lend to a government that doesn’t also know the value of a dollar and behave in a way that financially responsible.
But, Smith’s observations imply that if a government could implement a fiat currency that could be “spun out of thin air,” it might be possible to “borrow” that fiat currency directly from an irresponsible central bank rather than rely on the responsible “merchants and manufacturers”. Once governments found a new class of creditors, government would no longer need to increase the “merchant-manufacturer” class, nor would government be compelled to embrace financially responsible values. Thus, Insofar as a central bank and fiat currency freed government from borrowing from merchants-manufacturers, government could allow that class to wither or even disappear.
For example, a government that depended on fiat currency rather than borrowing real money (gold/silver) from its merchants and manufacturers could allow the export if its nation’s industries to foreign countries. The loss of such industries and their jobs might be important to the people of the nation, but would no longer be significant to a government deriving credit from sources other than its people.
Smith’s fundamental lesson seems obvious and ancient. The borrower is servant (some say, slave) to the lender. Government will serve the interests of its creditors. Insofar as those creditors are other than the people of the nation a government purports to rule, the government will be predisposed to betray the people’s best interests and even commit treason.
• “The progress of the enormous debts which at present oppress, and will in the long-run probably ruin, all the great nations of Europe has been pretty uniform.”
In A.D. 1776, virtually every great nation was subject to self-destruction as a consequence of great debt. The same is true today.
And yet, knowing that great debt is at least “oppressive” and almost certainly conducive to national destruction, since WWII, our government has reduced The United States of America from the richest nation on earth to the world’s greatest debtor nation.
More, our government has even implemented a “debt-based monetary system” wherein “debt” (a mere “promise to pay”) is deemed to be form of wealth as tangible as a gold coin in hand. Anyone who believes that a debt can be a reliable form of wealth is foolish. Debt instruments are not wealth. They are merely paper promises of wealth in a world where most promises (especially by government) can’t be kept.
Our government’s fundamental economic posture is insane and even suicidal.
But this isn’t news.
Adam Smith clearly understood the dangers of excessive public debt over two centuries ago. So, why has our current government ignored or refused to understand these fundamental principles? Is it simply a matter political irresponsibility? Are our politicians universally stupid and ignorant? Or are the upper echelons of our government intentionally seeking to destroy our nation with excessive debt?
• Smith distinguished between two fundamental kinds of governmental debts: 1) those based on “anticipation”; and 2) “perpetuities”.
The “anticipation” debts were short term and based on the expectation (“anticipation”) that tax revenues would accrue over the next few years that would be sufficient to repay both the principal and interest on the “anticipation” debt. We borrow $1 million today because our anticipated tax revenues will allow us to repay principal and interest in, say, 3 years.
Smith described those debts that were intended to last forever as “perpetuities”. These debts did not “anticipate” ever being repaid in full. Instead, the principal would never be repaid, and each year the government would simply pay the interest on the “perpetuity”.
I don’t know that today’s government has expressly designated any of our national debt as “perpetual”--but that’s what most of our national debt has become. Government currently claims our national debt to be about $16 trillion. Others claim the national debt is really $80 to $200 trillion. It’s unlikely that all or even most of our $16 trillion national debt will ever be repaid. It’s certain that most of an $80 trillion (or $200 trillion) national debt can’t and won’t ever be repaid.
Insofar as our national debt has effectively become a “perpetuity,” there’s no intent of ever repaying the principal on a “perpetuity”. However, so long as the gov-co can still repay the interest, the debt (“perpetuity”) will be deemed valid and valuable. But if we reach a time when even the interest can’t be paid, the perpetuity will be deemed worthless and the debt repudiated. Those holding such “perpetuities” as a form of wealth will be ruined, as will anyone holding virtually any other form of US debt.
What is the annual interest due on the national debt? It depends. What’s the true size of the national debt? $16 trillion? $80 trillion? $200 trillion?
How much longer can we afford to pay (or conceal) the interest on the national debt? I don’t know. But, the absolute, outside limit on the life-expectancy of the current economic system is the moment when we can’t or won’t pay the interest on the national debt.
• “To relieve the present exigency is always the object which principally interests those immediately concerned in the administration of public affairs. The future liberation of the public revenue they leave to the care of posterity.”
Nothing new under the sun. Governments then and now are happy to solve “present exigencies” by borrowing money to appease today’s taxpayers by laying off the debt on future taxpayers.
But what happens if future taxpayes can’t or won’t repay the debt? The government will be exposed as bankrupt, and its debt instruments will be deemed worthless to its creditors.
• “When national debts have once been accumulated to a certain degree, there is scarce, I believe, a single instance of their having been fairly and completely paid. The liberation of the public revenue, if it has ever been brought about by bankruptcy; sometimes by an avowed one, but always by a real one, though frequently by a pretended payment.”
Mr. Smith is saying that once the national/sovereign debt of a government reaches a “certain degree,” government debtors always default on its debt. Smith doesn’t specify what that “certain degree” may be. But, insofar as the US is now the biggest debtor nation in the world, it seems likely that the US has exceed that “certain degree”.
If so, those who keep their wealth in the “risk free” bonds of the US government be dumb. Unless our government is nigh unto the first in recorded history to do so, our government will not repay its national debt. It will default.
More, government will not be forced to default by unforeseen circumstance. Default was always government’s ultimate intent.
People in positions of power and influence in the federal government and the Federal Reserve have known all along that whenever the national debt gets too big, they’ll simply default. Debt repudiation is their fall-back position; their “plan B”. Governments have routinely defaulted on their debts since the time of Caesar. They’ll continue to default and defraud their creditors until hell freezes. It’s what government do.
So, while you may be able to safely hold US bonds today and tomorrow and next year, the day is absolutely coming when those debt-instruments will be substantially or completely repudiated. Bet on it.
According to Smith, over the centuries, defaults have taken two forms: 1) overt declaration of bankruptcy; and 2) “pretended payment”.
Smith recognized the adulteration or inflation of the coin of the realm as a “pretended payment”. Today, we have another: fiat currency. In both instances, debtors repay their debts with “cheaper dollars” and thereby rob their creditors—and destroy capital.
“The raising of the denomination of the coin has been the most usual expedient by which a real public bankruptcy has been disguised under the appearance of a pretended payment. If a sixpence, for example, should either by Act of Parliament or Royal Proclamation be raised to the denomination of a shilling, . . . the person who under the old denomination had borrowed twenty shillings, or near four ounces of silver, would, under the new, pay with twenty sixpences, or with something less than two ounces. A national debt of about a hundred and twenty-eight millions, nearly the capital of the funded and unfunded debt of Great Britain, might in this manner be paid with about sixty-four millions of our present money. It would indeed be a pretended payment only, and the creditors of the public would really be defrauded of ten shillings in the pound of what was due to them.”
Note that Smith recognized a real “payment” as denominated in ounces of gold or silver. Smith’s “pretended payments” were somehow less than the number of ounces of gold or silver originally borrowed and thus constituted fraud.
Today, thanks to fiat currency the monetary fraud of “pretended payment” with paper dollars has been institutionalized.
“The calamity, too, would extend much further than to the creditors of the public . . . every private person would suffer a proportionable loss . . . . A pretended payment . . . aggravates . . . the loss of the creditors of the public, and . . . extends the calamity to a great number of other innocent people. It occasions a . . . subversion of the fortunes of private people, enriching in most cases the idle and profuse debtor at the expence of the industrious and frugal creditor, and transporting a great part of the national capital from the hands which were likely to increase and improve it to those which are likely to dissipate and destroy it.”
Smith recognized “capital” as crucial to increasing economic prosperity. Smith therefore contended that capital is destroyed by means of pretended payments of the sort we see with currency manipulation and inflation.
If Smith is right, what can we suppose about a government that claims to be “capitalist” while simultaneously embracing a fiat currency and inflation that destroy “capital”?
Can a nation that routinely engages in “pretended payments” (inflation and fiat currency) truly be “capitalist”? Is inflation’s attack on our nation’s capital is an accident, or evidence of governmental intent to destroy “capitalism”?
• It takes a little effort to read The Wealth of Nations. But that book offers so much commonsense insight into economics, that the effort is absolutely worthwhile.

The Immune System – Our "First Line of Defense"
by Ty Bollinger
Maintaining a healthy immune system is the key to staying healthy and fighting cancer and all other degenerative disease. If your immune system is functioning properly, your body has no other choice but to stay healthy. That’s the way God made our bodies. It’s only when the immune system is compromised that we succumb to sickness and disease.
The fact is we develop cancer cells throughout our bodies throughout our lives. Our bodies are normally able to find them, identify them and destroy them before they are able to grow uncontrollably. It is a normal occurrence, which is constantly taking place in a healthy body. It is only when the healthy body becomes unable to mount its normal defenses and the cancer cells are allowed to reproduce at an uncontrollable rate that cancer becomes life threatening. This is a failure or breakdown of our normal immune system. The immune systems breakdown, and its cause, needs to be treated in conjunction with the cancer, in order to assure the best possible outcome for the patient. Any treatment that does not address underlying causes for the breakdown of the immune system will be palliative at best, and life threatening at their worst.
The immune system is a collection of cells, chemical messengers, and proteins that work together to protect the body from potentially harmful, infectious microbes such as bacteria, viruses, and fungi; thus, the immune system plays a role in the control of cancer and other diseases. Our remarkable immune system is composed of leukocytes (white blood cells), antibodies (proteins in the blood), the thymus, spleen, and liver. It even has its own network of vessels (the lymphatic system) which drains waste products from tissues and transports it from lymph node to lymph node where macrophages (literally “big eaters”) filter out debris.
Leukocytes are the body’s “first line of defense.” When foreign “invaders” enter the body, our immune system comes to the rescue in two ways:
1. Leukocytes directly attack the invader.
2. Antibodies either damage the invaders directly, or alert leukocytes to mount an attack.
There are two main subgroups of leukocytes. The first subgroup is calledpolymorphonuclear leukocytes (also known as granulocytes). These leukocytes are filled with granules of toxic chemicals that enable them to digest microbes by a process called phagocytosis (literally “cell-eating”). Three types of granulocytes are neutrophils (which kill bacteria),eosinophils (which kill parasites), and basophils.
The second subgroup of leukocytes is called mononuclear leukocytes, which include both monocytes and lymphocytes Monocytes ingest dead or damaged cells (through phagocytosis) and provide immunological defenses against many infectious organisms. Monocytes migrate into tissues and develop into macrophages. Macrophages contain granules or packets of chemicals and enzymes which serve the purpose of ingesting and destroying microbes, antigens, and other foreign substances.
Lymphocytes, found in the lymph system, are mononuclear leukocytes which identify foreign substances and germs (bacteria or viruses) in the body and produce antibodies and cells that specifically target them. It takes from several days to weeks for lymphocytes to recognize and attack a new foreign substance. Lymphocytes make up roughly 25% of all white blood cells in the body. Like other white blood cells, they are produced in the red bone marrow. Lymphocytes constantly travel throughout the body, moving through tissues or through the blood or lymph vessels. There are three major subtypes of lymphocytes: T-cells, B-cells, and NK cells The letter “T” refers to the thymus, where those lymphocytes mature. The letter “B” refers to the bone marrow, where that group of lymphocytes matures. The “NK” is an acronym for “natural killer” cells.
The lymph system bathes every cell and carries nutrients to the cell while removing toxins such as dead and cancerous cells, heavy metals, infectious viruses, and other assorted wastes. But unlike the blood (which is pumped by the heart), the lymph is totally dependent on physical exercise to move.
Without muscular contraction, adequate exercise, and movement, these lymphocytes are not able to do their job, because the lymph doesn’t flow. Thus, the body’s cells are left stewing in their own waste products and starving for nutrients, a situation which contributes to cancer and other degenerative diseases, as well as premature aging.
Rebounding has been shown to increase lymph flow by up to 30 times! This simple yet effective exercise directly strengthens the immune system, increases lymph flow, and oxygenates the blood. My good friend, Dr. Darrell Wolfe, has treated cancer successfully for over 25 years. The first thing he would require of a new cancer patient is that they jump on a mini-tramp (rebounder) for 40 minutes per day (20 minutes in the morning and 20 minutes in the evening) in order to stimulate their lymphatic system, thus “kicking into gear” their own immune system so that they could begin to fight the cancer.

Strategies for Relocation for Security
by Joel M. Skousen
Are you part of the "prepper-movement? Find out what you need to know to secure your future when having money isn't enough.
More and more professionals are coming around to the view that that there are multiple threats to our economy, jobs, and even our liberty that threaten our very well being tenuously built up over centuries into a sophisticated and dangerously interdependent social structure. That’s why the prepper movement has suddenly gone mainstream in the past 4 years.
Thinking people and even people with lots of money (who used to think that their accumulation of wealth would secure them from anything) are not so sure anymore that government has the solutions for the overwhelming threats of sovereign debt and future conflict. Some, like me, even believe government is the problem, not the solution, and that we increasingly need to take measures to protect wealth and privacy from the all-surveilling eye of the NSA.
Some of these man made threats loom so large they cannot be avoided, only mitigated by moving to a strategically safe place, and converting a major portion of one’s assets into physical commodities and facilities that can shield us partially from major threats . That is because, no matter whether the threat is severe economic hardship, terrorism, war, or natural disasters, the guaranteed single largest threat that everyone will face who lives in a large city, is social unrest.
Today’s world simply cannot and will not hold together if critical infrastructures like food transportation, water, and electricity are interrupted on a wide scale for over a week—and it doesn’t take much to get there with the vulnerability of our electrical grid. Look at what happened in Washington DC this week---and that wasn’t even major.
Even good people when start to panic when they’re out of food and money can’t buy you anything---because stores are empty. If you haven’t prepared in advance to be out of the city when social unrest strikes, it’s too late once it starts and all routes are clogged with refugees, and major highways are blocked with cars that have broken down or run out of gas.
There’s also the social factor of people’s growing softness and inability to handle tough times. We have become a soft people, generally, and that doesn’t bode well for society banding together to handle a crisis. Even analyzing threats requires some unpleasant considerations and some tough thinking that few people are prepared to handle. They’d rather believe media and political assurances that keep promising solutions that don’t really work in the long-term. The world is full of short term fixes that keep unraveling---only to be replaced by another and yet another that prolongs the illusions of hope.
After over 40 years of consulting with families about high security residents and retreats, I feel strongly that soft people won’t do well in a severe crisis, and neither will children from homes where their parents don’t require mental and physical toughness. I also believe that excessive optimism or positivism can lead to a partial blinding of our ability to see the future, especially relative to security issues. Today we live in a world still awash in illusions of peace, prosperity and security, despite the warning signs. If you build your life around these illusions, they can leave you woefully unprepared when things get really bad. Evading hard mental effort leads to soft thinking, which we see in popular ideas like “everybody is special”, and “I’m OK and you’re OK.” The world’s problems simply don’t go away by making ourselves blind to the differences between us. Differences have to be confronted, often with patience, but confronted nonetheless.
Thus, much of my book Strategic Relocation—North American Guide to Safe Places is based on the analysis of finding safety away from high density population areas. Security is inversely proportional to population density. You simply cannot be secure in a sea of humanity that will fall apart in a crisis. And yet, if you bail out of society too soon, you may seriously impair your financial lifeline.
Don’t underestimate how expensive self-sufficiency and security can be when you’ve moved so far away from your income stream that you can no longer sustain your system of preparedness. Sadly, most people’s ability to earn a living is inversely proportional to low population densities.
This conflict between low density population security and high density population income makes strategic relocation a fairly complex process. For most people, the solution is to develop a hierarchy of contingencies and develop the means to both stay within society as long as you can and to quickly move outward to a prepared rural retreat as you see things deteriorating.
Some who have the means may even be able to implement 3 levels of preparedness: a place near the city, a rural mini farm, and an ultimate mountain retreat for short periods when it isn’t even safe in rural areas. Here are some hints on how to arrange the first steps in a contingency strategy:
1) Relocate to the periphery of the major city you are tied to, in the direction to where you want to retreat if social unrest comes. Make sure the lot size is big enough and suitably oriented to the sun so that you have enough room to grow a big garden. Running surface water nearby to that home is a real plus in case city water is cut off.
2) Provide a small concealed Safe Room in that suburban location where you can stockpile at least a 3 month supply of food and essentials to be able to hunker down if you get trapped by the crisis or you have to wait for the roads to clear.
3) Provide for emergency vehicle strategy for “getting out of dodge” along with stockpiled fuel, which may even involve learning how to fly---if you have to get over insurmountable traffic threats in extremely high density urban areas like the NY-NJ core. Develop several routes that avoid even secondary highways. I have a special section in my book on how to plan an exit route so that you don’t get trapped by Interstate Highways which act like giant dikes around a city that cannot be crossed easily.
In future articles, I’ll provide more tips to help you prepare, as space permits.

What's Ailing America? DISINFO BY "ANTI-VACCINE" MOVEMENT
by Rebecca Carley MC
What is worse than not having vital information? Having misinformation. Dr. Carley sets the record straight on mercury in vaccines.
I was shocked and horrified recently to hear a veterinarian on an excellent internet radio show (which I have been a guest on many times) telling listeners that autism is caused by mercury (thimerosol) in vaccines. I always make it clear when I am on radio shows to point out that mercury does NOT cause autism; autism is actually subacute sclerosing panencephalitis (SSPE) caused by the measles virus. The name was changed to hide this fact. Despite the fact that this host who I highly respect has heard me say this many times, when the veterinarian stated autism is caused by mercury, it went right over her head. This disinfo is being propagated by so many in the “anti-vaccine” movement, and I need to drive the point home as to why this disinfo MUST be stopped. First let me say that mercury is definitely a neurological toxin; it should not be injected into people or pets, nor put into amalgam fillings in teeth. Mercury actually causes nerve cell DEATH, as illustrated so dramatically in a study done at the University of Calgary which can be accessed at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xf6uCw2ztxw. Very important to know is that snail neurons do NOT HAVE A MYELIN SHEATH. The myelin sheath, a fatty covering on almost all nerves, is to those nerve cells what a plastic coating is to an electrical cord; an INSULATOR. Proper conduction of nerve cell impulses is dependent on this myelin sheath; if the myelin sheath is disrupted, electrical impulses to muscles and organs cannot occur.
My beloved grandmother died of Alzheimer’s disease before I went to medical school, so I paid very close attention when this disease was being discussed in lectures. The most obvious pathological findings at autopsy in the brains of patients with Alzheimer’s are what’s called “neurofibrillary tangles” amidst aluminum deposits that can be detected using special stains. Despite the fact that huge deposits of aluminum are found in these brains, no explanation is made in the medical books to explain where this aluminum comes from. I figured it out by remembering what I saw when I lived with my grandparents while in high school. My grandmother used aluminum pots and pans for all her cooking. When she made lasagna or any tomato sauce, she would cover the dishes with aluminum foil when she put the leftovers in the refrigerator. When I would take these leftovers out to reheat them, without fail I would see tiny holes in the aluminum foil obviously caused by the acidity of the tomato sauce breaking down the aluminum foil. Where did that aluminum go? INTO THE FOOD, INTO OUR STOMACHS, INTO OUR BRAINS. The fact that this reality is not discussed in the medical books is a testament to the power of the aluminum lobby, which does not want people to know that aluminum from pots and pans, foil, cans, antacids, vaccine adjuvants, deodorant, seafood, etc. is depositing in their brains and contributing to Alzheimers disease.
So why did I sidebar from autism to Alzheimers disease? To enlighten you to the following…mercury and aluminum cause Alzheimers disease (NOT autism). Mercury causes death of brain neurons (as demonstrated in the Calgary video above); the dead neurons form “tangles” around the aluminum deposits in the brain. There is also a finding of “amyloid plaque” in the pathological specimens of brains of Alzheimers patients. From the many clients I have reversed Alzheimers in with my protocol over the past 15 years, I am convinced that the amyloid plaque is primarily due to mycoplasma infection. Where is the mycoplasma coming from? Chemtrails for one; it has also been found to be given in vaccines to soldiers in the gulf war (in fact mycoplasma incognitas has been PATENTED).
Of course, it is important to detoxify heavy metals and all major toxins in everyone. As I explain in the diagrams I created in 1999 that are available at http://www.reversingvaccineinduceddiseases.com/page/414591608 , it is always the “big picture” of assaults that lead to any symptom complex that is given the name of a particular disease. But particular toxins are definitely associated with particular diseases; and it is the measles virus, NOT mercury, that causes autism (along with ADD/ADHD, pervasive developmental disorder, Asperbergers syndrome, Tourettes syndrome and many other conditions that result from VACCINE INDUCED ENCEPHALITIS). The reason these conditions skyrocketed after the introduction of the MMR vaccine is because the measles virus is very similar in structure to the myelin basic protein that insulates nerves to allow proper conduction of nerve cell impulses. This occurs due to a process called molecular mimicry, where antibodies produced against the measles virus also attack the myelin sheath. The only thing that determines what symptoms result is where the demyelination occurs. The reason this differentiation is so critical (and why the “mercury causes autism” disinformers are so dangerous) is because the powers that be are trying to make people beLIEve that vaccines can be made “safer” by removing the mercury preservative. This is why the “secret” document regarding mercury in vaccines causing problems was released, so that groups like Generation Rescue and its leader Jenny McCarthy could get parents of autistic children to protest, shouting “green our vaccines”. An insane idea…that you could take a product made out of viruses and “green” it! These groups and individuals talking about only one part of the witch’s cocktail as bad are doing an extreme disservice to humanity. Vaccines are bioweapons….PERIOD. And they cause damage in many ways, as explained in my document “Inoculations the True WMD” posted on www.drcarley.com. The parents of autistic children are the most vocal group of all of the vaccine damaged population; thus, the intentional misdirection of them by disinformers to blame mercury.
The epidemic in autoimmune disease is being caused, without question, by the corruption of the immune system that occurs with the injection of vaccines into the bloodstream. The molecular mimicry which occurs in the case of demyelination caused by anti-measles antibody as described above is only a small part of the autoimmune picture. The most common cause of the vaccine induced production of autoimmune disease is the tissue cultures used to grow the vaccine viruses. More and more vaccine viruses are now being grown on cells from aborted fetuses; it is not possible to separate the viruses from the tissues used to grow them. Depending on the tissue involved, your body will see it as non-self, and develop antibodies against that foreign tissue. The cross reactivity of those antibodies will then cause them to attack your tissue according to what foreign tissue the vaccine viruses were cultured on. (This is analogous to what happens in the rejection of a transplanted organ, which is why anti- rejection drugs are given to a transplant recipient). In fact, in the package insert from the rabies vaccine available at the bottom of http://www.reversingvaccineinduceddiseases.com/page/414867778 , it actually states that "Tissue-origin vaccines contain extraneous protein in addition to rabies antigen that can lead to autoimmune disease." This is the first time I have ever seen this admission in print; however, It is true for all vaccines.

Allergies, Asthma and Antibiotics
by Dr. Stefanie Gross-Rodsater D.C
Dr. Stefanie Gross-Rodsater shares with us a new study shedding some scientific light on the cause of childhood allergies and asthma.
A new study suggests, "Treating your child with antibiotics seems to increase their risk for developing childhood diseases like eczema and allergic asthma." A senior researcher, Dr. Christina Cole, for Henry Ford Health System in Detroit, studies the effects of antibiotics on infants. She reviewed medical records for 445 children. The children were followed for their development of allergic conditions until age 6-7.
Almost 50% of the children were treated with antibiotics in their first 6 months of life. The children who were treated with antibiotics were 1.5 times more likely to develop allergies and were 2.5 times more likely to suffer from allergic asthma by the age of 7 than the children who weren't treated with antibiotics. "The early use of antibiotics may damage the child's gastrointestinal tract and inhibit the developing immune system."
The antibiotic link to asthma was higher for kids who did not have a pet at home. They also noted that early exposure in life to bacterial infections and bacterial products seem to prevent the development of allergies. There is evidence that normal childhood diseases and bacterial infections help build a child's immune system. A healthy immune system will help protect them against allergies, asthma and more serious health challenges later in life.
Even though you or your child may not be sick, your body may be acquiring misalignments of the spine (subluxations) that are interfering with your nervous system and thus your immune system. Regular chiropractic check-ups can help you to maintain a healthy immune system and stave off illnesses or allergies. A chiropractic adjustment will restore the balance of your nervous system and restore the flow of energy and information throughout the body. A study was done on a group of 107 subjects from every age group and level of health. The chiropractic patients had 200% greater immune competence than those who had not received chiropractic care, and 400% greater immune competence than those with cancer or other serious disease.
So are you and your children benefiting from regular chiropractic wellness care - even when they are symptom free? To see if chiropractic may be able to help you call 704-895-7227 today!

CONSUMERS Vs FDA
by Herbalist Wendy Wilson
More people are taking supplements than ever before. In fact, American consumers who use supplements say that they need to supplement their diets to maintain their health. So why is the FDA trying to remove a majority of supplements from the market? Let's find out.
According to a consumer market survey conducted by Vitamin Shoppe Inc., consumer confidence is up on one area – dietary supplements. Every year Vitamin Shoppe Inc surveys over 1,000 US consumers to find out what they think is important in health, supplements etc. Americans are very confident about their health if they are supplementing their diet. Consumers say they are more comfortable with their health status when they use supplements to make up where there diet falls short. We have about 63% of Americans taking a supplement, which is up by 3% over 2011. Nearly 72% of those taking supplements do on a regular basis. Why would thousands of people continue to spend money and take supplements if they didn’t work? This is exactly why you are seeing the FDA go on the supplement warpath.
In modern times, it is more difficult to consume enough fruits, vegetables and wholesome foods on a daily basis to stay healthy. The cost of good food is going up and some folks are cutting corners and may therefore depend more on a good supplement to bridge the gap.
“It’s difficult for most people to consume the recommended daily servings of fresh fruits and vegetables, especially while juggling work and family.” Sharon Richter, Registered Dietitian NY
It’s not just hectic schedules and more stress. We have people abusing power, corrupting our food and now we need supplements to stay healthy. Americans are trying to fight back and take more responsibility for their health and one way they are accomplishing that is with supplements. About 81% try to stay active and 6 out of 10 (56%) believe that vitamins and other supplements are absolutely necessary to achieve health and fitness goals.
A WHOLE LOT OF SCREAMING
If over half of the American population realizes that supplements are a valuable part of healthy living, I expect there will be a whole lot of screaming from the American consumer as the FDA begins their march on the kingdom of supplements.
KINGDOM OF SUPPLEMENTS
We all know that the new FDA guidelines are not laws but they are agency guidelines or policy, which they are trying to stuff down the consumer’s throat. In the last fifty years, the supplement market has not only done an excellent job of producing safe, affordable and quality products but they have done so without killing people. To add insult to injury, people are actually healthier as a result, which has cut down on the doctor office visits and need for prescriptions. Medicine and the pharmaceutical companies have felt the financial loss and the FDA is trying to restore the balance by trying to enforce new policy on the supplement industry. The goal of the new policy is to deplete the supplement market of 75% of its products and thereby funnel consumers once again into doctor’s office and the pharmacy.
As previously feared by market experts such as Todd Harrison of the Venable Company, (which advises product manufacturers on FDA and FTC regulations) the FDA has decided to ignore consumer feedback and Congress is attempting to enforce their Draft Guidelines (policy not law) without going through the normal legal channels. The FDA has taken the position that their guidelines are legal provisions manufacturers of supplements must abide by. As a nation of laws we have always gone through an administrative rulemaking process making sure industry standards were upheld. I’m sure you have realized that America is no longer a nation of laws but a nation of men. The President of the United States and his administration are picking and choosing which laws to uphold and this creates distrust and chaos. The FDA is following the President’s example. Unless we get some righteous leadership across this land, it won’t be long before laws in general don’t matter. Is that the change Obama spoke of?
“And he (antichrist) will speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws…” Daniel 7:25
WHY IS THE FDA WRONG?
The FDA is in violation of current, established law regarding the dietary supplement industry. From a legal standpoint the FDA is asserting a different definition of a dietary supplement in order to enforce their policy. The FDA insists that there is no distinction between natural and synthetic molecules or substances with regards to foods, drugs, biologics and dietary supplements. The FDA says there is no basis in science or policy for a distinction. The significant change the FDA is trying to make is with regards to exclude synthetic botanicals in their policy guidelines. Our current federal statute reads:
“A dietary ingredient is a vitamin, mineral, herb or other botanical, amino acid, dietary substance for use by man to supplement the diet by increasing the total dietary intake, or concentrate, metabolite, constituent, extract or combination of any such substance.” [FDCA § 201(f)]
In Dorland’s Medical Dictionary we find the definition of botanical as; both pertaining to botany and derived from plants. So we have substances “relating to plants” and substances “derived from plants.” Substances “derived” from plants are natural botanicals and substances “related” to plants are botanicals that are artificial rather than natural. So, why is the FDA excluding synthetic supplements from their new strict policy for supplements? According to the FDA, synthetic versions of natural substances are no less likely to be safe. The FDA is not seeking to stifle the market of synthetic foods, vitamins, drugs or biologics. Synthetic products are seen as superior to the natural counterparts because they can be created in a controlled environment supposedly without impurities. These attempts by the FDA are also meant to preclude any development of higher quality botanical supplements.
KEEP IN MIND
The recent actions of the FDA to send out warning letters to various supplement companies have no legal standing. They are working outside current, established law. Supplement companies that receive such letters should vigorously disagree in response to any FDA allegations. Also duly noted, the FDA has not started to take products off stores shelves. If they bully their way into the stores to remove product, according to the Alliance for Natural Health report, the supplement market will lose $5.6 million to $10.5 billion. More importantly, over half of the American people would be without their organic supplements, would have diminished confidence in their overall health and their government agencies.
MORE OF US
There are more American supplement consumers than there are FDA officials. If we stick together and just say “NO” to more outrageous government regulations we would not only be healthier but would see the financial markets bounce back. Practice saying NO, with authority. And if you know your Bible, you can quote scripture as your spiritual sword. A few men are trying to usurp the authority of God. Our creator gave each of us dominion over every green thing; plant, tree, seed and herb. God did not give the FDA authority to take your healthy food away with manmade policy. There is no greater power than of God and He establishes government. When the righteous uphold the government of God, the people rejoice. When the wicked rule, the people mourn. (Proverbs 29:2). Abused and misused power is not from God. God never ordained tyranny. Life and liberty are good. Death and slavery are not good. When government ceases to operate within God’s ordained sphere it becomes tyrannical. And it may be lawfully resisted because it has become the enemy of God. The tyrant talks as if he is preserving your best interests, when he actually acts to undermine them. Believe the word of God. For who finds me finds life; and will obtain favor of the Lord. Be he that sins against me wrongs his own soul; all they that hate me love death (Proverbs 8:35-36).
CHILDREN OF TOMORROW by Phillan Pollock
Children of tomorrow, I apologize to you
On behalf of those in my time, for the things we didn’t do
We didn’t stop the tyrants, so your fate could be prevented
We watched them steal our freedom, by our silence we consented
We didn’t choose to circumvent the doom you’ve not escaped
While the Bill of Rights was murdered and the Constitution raped
Some of us were lazy, others too afraid
To think about our children, the ones we have betrayed
I guess we were too busy, to be concerned or care
To try to ease the burden of the chains we made you wear
We could have been good shepherds, when the wolf got in the fold
But we watched the flame of freedom die instead and left you cold
I’m sorry we were timid, my selfish generation
We left you but a remnant of a free and prosperous nation
I’m sorry for our actions, like cowards we behaved
We could have left you freedom, instead you are enslaved
Children of tomorrow, descendants of our land
I’m sorry we allowed this, the fate you now with stand.
The righteous have God on their side and God never loses a battle. It is time to put on the whole armor of God and stand your ground. Just say NO to that which is unnatural and ungodly. Say NO to GMO’s, vaccines, poisoned water and suppression – it will make you sick and kill you. God honors those who stand with Him. STAND!!! Or you’ll wish you had. Fifty-six percent of Americans say they won’t be healthy without their supplements. Well, I’d say that taking over 70% of your supplements off the market is a big threat – don’t you? The next generation will thank you if you stand and fight for health and freedom now, while you can.
