"Only buy something that you'd be perfectly happy to hold
if the market shut down for 10 years."—Warren Buffett
“What investment would you dare to hold
for 10 years—other than gold?”—Alfred Adask
by Alfred Adask
Another newsletter recently published an article concerning the possibility of future gold confiscation by government:
"Will they confiscate my gold? . . . No one knows. Here is my strategy . . . . The key word is diversification.”
The article recommended diversifying your portfolio to include gold bullion but also semi-numismatic gold coins, platinum, palladium and silver (which might not be seized if government confiscated gold), and some mining shares. That seems reasonable.
But the author goes on to say, “If you do own gold, you should strongly consider safely storing it out of the country. I prefer Canada because it is closer to me and easier to retrieve my metals.” (Coincidentally, this newsletter promoted and profited from a Canadian depository for protecting Americans’ gold.)
This article included much of a second article entitled, “The Greatest Threat to Gold Ownership”. That second article opined that,
“It's an interesting thought that the greatest threat to gold and silver investment might not be the possibility of losing on the speculation, but the government taking it away from you.
Seriously? Are we to believe that our “big government” that’s been absolutely dependent on fiat, paper dollars for over forty years . . . a government that removed gold and silver as US monetary backing . . . will now seize Americans’ gold in order to destroy fiat dollars and issue a new gold-based dollar?! That’s nuts.
“If the US and the EU could come up with a large volume of gold quickly, they could issue a gold-backed currency themselves. It's a simple equation: The more gold they have = the more backed notes they can produce = the more power they continue to hold. By seizing the private supply of their citizens, they would increase their holdings substantially in short order.”
As for seizing a “large” or “substantial” volume of gold quickly, Wikipedia reports that the US gov-co holds about 8,133.5 tons of gold at Ft. Knox which (at $1900/ounce) is worth almost $500 billion.
I haven’t found a credible estimate of how much physical gold in the form of coins or bullion is privately-held by Americans. I shall therefore assume that the weight of all privately-held gold coins and bullion (but not counting jewelry) in the US is roughly equal to the alleged “official gold holding” for the US in Ft. Knox. (In fact, I doubt that assumption is true. I believe private Americans hold much less gold coin and bullion than is held in Ft. Knox.)
Based on my (generous?) assumption, private holdings of gold coins and bars in the US might be worth as much as $500 billion.
QE3 spends $48 billion per month ($576 billion per year) by simply spinning currency out of thin air. Plus, the first three months of QE3 are supposed to spend an additional $85 billion. I.e., QE3 is expected to spend $831 billion in its first 12 months. Thus, our current economic mess is so deep that all of the $500 billion in privately-held US investments in gold might only “kick the can down the road” for another seven months.
More, no matter what government does, it will not confiscate 100% of all gold coins and bullion. I think they’d be lucky to seize 50%—enough to “kick the can” for just three or four months.
Is gov-co dumb enough to risk considerable political backlash by trying to seize our privately-held gold even though they could only expect to “stimulate” the economy for an extra three or four months? I don’t think so.
Isn’t it easier and less politically dangerous to simply “spin” an extra $500 billion out of thin air by printing more currency than it is to put troops on the street to go door to door looking for gold?
If private Americans have only $500 billion worth of gold (and gov-co can’t hope to seize more than half of that), is confiscation worth the trouble? I can’t see how.
The article concluded, “If gold were to be confiscated, you do not want to own it here in the US. Since confiscation is possible, it is best to diversify and keep your gold stored outside of the US.”
Again, I doubt that government will seize your gold. Here are more reasons why:
1. According to Wikipedia,
“It has been estimated that all the gold mined by the end of 2009 totaled 165,000 tonnes. At a price of US$1900 per troy ounce . . . . The total value of all gold ever mined would exceed US$10.1 trillion at that valuation.”
The total national debt is variously estimated to be $16 trillion (US gov-co); $80 trillion (shadowstats.com) and $220 trillion (Congressional Budget Office; CBO). If gov-co could seize all the gold in the world ($10 trillion), what difference would that make in light of the magnitude of the national debt? If gov-co could only seize the gold that’s privately-held by Americans, gov-co would be lucky gain a “lousy” $500 billion.
$500 billion is only about 3% of the $16 trillion that government admits to owing. It’s only 0.6% of the $80 billion that shadowstats.com calculates as the national debt, and about 0.2% of the CBO’s $220 billion estimate of total national debt.
If gov-co could steal every ounce of privately-held gold in America, they probably wouldn’t reduce the national debt by more than 1%. 1% is a triviality; it’s almost a rounding error.
So, what’s gov-co’s motivation to confiscate Americans’ gold? There’s not enough privately-held gold in the US to make seizure worthwhile. In fact, there’s not enough gold in all the world to resolve our economic problems.
2. What classes of private people hold the most gold in this country?
A: 1) the rich; and, 2) the smart.
Who does Congress currently serve? Those who give Congress money.
Who gives Congress the most money? The rich.
Will Congress confiscate gold and thereby offend their rich benefactors?
Will Congress antagonize smart Americans by taking their gold?
I don’t think so.
A man who owns $1 million in gold may not want to bury it in mason jars in the backyard. It may be best to store most of such sums in some well-protected depository.
But for a man who owns $100,000 in gold, the backyard mason jar may be the best solution.
If gov-co decides to seize gold, will they go door-to-door, trying to find a few gold coins here, an occasional bar there? Or will they go after the US depositories that are known, few in number, and holding tons of gold? If the threat of government seizure is real, wouldn’t most gold bugs be safer storing their gold in their own back yards?
I also doubt that gold is best protected by storing in foreign depositories. Here’s why:
1. The IRS already pursues US taxpayers who reside in foreign countries. The US government already pressures foreign banks to reveal information on Americans who may use foreign bank accounts to hide income.
Does anyone suppose that if the US gov-co decides to seize the gold that’s held privately by US citizens, that gov-co won’t also try to seize gold held offshore? You can bet that if seizures begin, laws will be passed to authorize the seizure (or at least discovery) of gold held by US citizens in foreign depositories.
Suppose the IRS can’t seize your gold in a foreign depository, but can compel that depository to reveal your name and the quantity of gold you’re storing. Do you suppose that the IRS won’t be able to use the knowledge of how much gold you’re storing in Zurich or Shanghai to argue that you haven’t paid your “fair share” of income tax? Even if the IRS can’t seize your foreign-held gold, I guarantee that they can seize you.
The belief that foreign depositories can guarantee your anonymity is unreliable. If you’re storing your gold in the same vault used by 1,000 other Americans, I guarantee that vault will be a prime IRS target.
On the other hand, if you stored your gold, all by yourself, out in some deserted barn, that target would probably be unknown or not high on the IRS’ target list.
2. Gov-co will not try to seize your gold except as an act of desperation. Such seizure (as with that of A.D. 1933) is only likely in the midst of a national depression. But, also as in A.D. 1933, the next national depression will undoubtedly correspond to a global depression.
Therefore, if our government becomes sufficiently desperate to seize privately-held gold in the US, the governments of foreign countries will be at least as desperate to seize whatever gold they can find in depositories located within their borders.
If the US authorizes such seizures, who doubts that the governments of Canada, China or France won’t do the same? What reason exists to suppose that, during a global depression, privately-owned gold held in foreign depositories won’t be seized by foreign governments?
Why suppose that, in the event of a global depression, anyone’s gold will be safer in the hands of some foreigner located several thousand miles away, than it would be buried in your own back yard?
3. If the US gov-co seized Americans’ privately-held gold, what message would that send to foreign governments that currently store their gold with the New York Federal Reserve Bank? Would they begin to fear that the US might soon seize their gold, too? Would they withdraw their gold from the New York depository and return it to their home countries? Would they demand an assay of all of their gold bars to ensure that the US and/or Federal Reserve hadn’t swapped their gold for tungsten? Are these risks the gov-co is prepared to face as consequences of stealing a mere $500 billion in privately-held American gold?
I don’t think so.
John Maynard Keynes was the single, most influential economist of the 20th century. In A.D. 1919, in his book, The Economic Consequences of Peace, Keynes wrote:
“By a continuing process of inflation, government can confiscate, secretly and unobserved, an important part of the wealth of their citizens. . . . There is no subtler, no surer means of overturning the existing basis of society than to debauch [inflate] the currency. The process engages all the hidden forces of economic law on the side of destruction, and does it in a manner which not one man in a million is able to diagnose.”
Forty-seven years later, Alan Greenspan (Federal Reserve chairman 1987-2006) wrote an article entitled “Gold and Economic Freedom”. In that article, Greenspan agreed that inflation confiscates the people’s wealth:
“[T]he gold standard is incompatible with chronic deficit spending (the hallmark of the welfare state). Stripped of its academic jargon, the welfare state is nothing more than a mechanism by which governments confiscate the wealth of the productive members of a society to support a wide variety of welfare schemes.
Both Keynes and Greenspan warned that government confiscates wealth by means of inflation. As evidence, consider the prices of gold and silver since A.D. 1968 (when paper dollars stopped being redeemed 1:1 for silver dollars) and A.D. 1971 (when foreign-held paper dollars stopped being redeemed at $35 to one ounce of gold). Today, one ounce of silver costs $35 and one ounce of gold costs almost $1,800. Do the math and you’ll see that in just the last 40 years—as compared to the prices of both gold and silver—the fiat dollar has lost about 98% of its purchasing power.
“In the absence of the gold standard, there is no way to protect savings from confiscation through inflation.
“This is the shabby secret of the welfare statists' tirades against gold. Deficit spending is simply a scheme for the confiscation of wealth. Gold stands in the way of this insidious process. It stands as a protector of property rights.”
Those who saved $1,000 back in A.D. 1971 in the form of a paper debt-instrument have (as compared to gold & silver) lost 98% of their purchasing power. Compared to gold and silver, their $1,000 is now worth about twenty bucks. That theft is almost impossible to believe because, if you lost $980 in purchasing power, who got the money? Where’d that $980 go? Because we can’t see the thief, we can’t believe that there’s been a theft.
Which is exactly why Keynes warned that “not one man in a million” can “diagnose” the confiscation that’s achieved by government by means of monetary inflation.
Who’s been the persistent but invisible thief for the past 40 years? The gov-co. They’ve been robbing us for most of our lives, and most of us haven’t yet caught on.
Again, I don’t believe that gov-co will try to seize privately-held gold in the foreseeable future. There’s too little to gain ($500 billion), and too much to lose politically.
But just because gov-co won’t steal your gold, doesn’t mean that gov-co isn’t determined to rob you. Consider:
Gov-co currently claims the inflation rate is about 1.7%.
John Williams (shadowstats.com) claims the real inflation rate is about 10.3%.
The Federal Reserve stopped publishing M3 (total US money supply) in March of A.D. 2006.
John Williams estimates that the current M3 is about $15 trillion.
Therefore, if inflation is a means of confiscating wealth, and if the “official” inflation rate of 1.7% is correct, then gov-co is currently “confiscating” about 1.7% times $15 trillion = $255 billion per year from those holding their wealth as paper-debt instruments. That’s about $800 per year per American. The average family of four is being ripped off to the tune of $3,200 annually by inflation. That’s not good, but it might be tolerable.
However, if the official inflation rate is false and the real rate of inflation is (as shadowstats.com claims) about 10.3%, then the gov-co may be currently confiscating about 10.3% times $15 trillion (M3) = $1.5 trillion per year—about $4,800 per year per American. The proverbial family of four is losing almost $20,000/year to inflation. Such losses can’t be survived and, of course, the economy is collapsing.
If John Williams’ inflation rate is correct, your government is already—right now—confiscating (stealing) $1.5 trillion per year from Americans who store their wealth in a media based on fiat dollars.
And nobody’s complaining!
If there’s no more than $500 billion in privately-held gold in the US, why would gov-co risk an overt, one-time seizure of a mere $500 billion (in privately-held gold) and thereby ignite a political firestorm—when they can already secretly confiscate $1.5 trillion this year with inflation, and then seize another $1.5 trillion next year with the same inflation rate, and then seize another $1.5 trillion the following year, etc., etc.—without causing any significant domestic or foreign protests?
In sum, seizing privately-held gold is a fool’s errand and therefore improbable.
Nevertheless, if the US gov-co did seize, foreign governments could be expected to do the same. Therefore, foreign depositories aren’t likely to be any safer than US depositories.
Possibilities vs. Actualities
Can I or anyone else guarantee that the US or foreign governments won’t seize your gold? No.
But when we talk about the threat of gold confiscation, we’re talking about a possible event that only might take place two, three or five years into the future.
When we talk about “confiscation of wealth,” we’re talking about inflation that’s taking place right now. Those of you who store your wealth in the form of paper debt-instruments denominated in fiat dollars are being robbed right now. You’ve been robbed by government for most of your life. You’ll continue to be robbed as far into the future as it’s possible for gov-co to sustain inflation or even hyperinflation (hyper-confiscation).
Even so, some Americans are more frightened by the possibility of being robbed of their physical gold at some time in the future, than they are about the actuality of being robbed of whatever wealth they’ve stored in paper debt-instruments, right now, by inflation
Both Keynes and Greenspan warned that inflation is a means by which government “confiscates” its own people’s wealth. Keynes also warned that “not one man in a million” can properly “diagnose” government confiscation by inflation. While many may fear the possibility of being robbed of his gold in the future, “not one man in a million” fully recognizes and fears the actuality of being robbed of his wealth right now by means of inflation.
That’s just stupid.
According to Alan Greenspan, the most reliable defense against the confiscation by inflation is ownership of physical gold. If you want to escape the current confiscation, buy gold, keep your mouth shut, and store it close to home. Deal with actual threats now. Let the possible threats of the future take care of themselves.

Survivalists Sheila & Dan Gendron
Hello to our new friends at AMERICAN SURVIVAL NEWSLETTER. We are Dan & Sheila Gendron the authors of Surviving Survivalism- How to Avoid Survivalism Culture Shock and hosts of the podcast, Still Surviving with Dan & Sheilaand the Surviving Survivalism Blog . We're very pleased to join the great writers here.
After a 20-plus year search for the right place, we've been living the self-sufficient/off-grid lifestyle for several years on a ranch in New Mexico. We've been living without a power grid (10 miles away), without phones (even cellphone service is not available here), in a house we built by hand (along with our son). But the amenities here are far better than any luxury apartments we've ever lived in. Amenities like sunlight playing on the mountains, making the view change all day long. Amenities like the clearest night skies available, showing off the firmament in all its glory. Amenities like having time to just sit and read a book, or simply feel the peace that surrounds us uninterrupted by the ringing of a phone, or the moving of electricity through wires.
One question we often ask people who are considering living the self-sufficient lifestyle, "Even if nothing ever actually hits the fan, wouldn't you want to live this way, anyway?" For us it's a big, "YES". We don't think of this as a lifestyle. We're not here because of what may or may not happen in the world. We simply think of it as the way we choose to live our lives.
We've seen or made most of the mistakes that can be made – some twice – in the transition from the urban or suburban lifestyle to the off-grid lifestyle and wrote the book and offer our upcoming articles in the AMERICAN SURVIVAL NEWSLETTER as a guide so that others won't have to re-invent the wheel. We've gained an interesting perspective from having essentially separated ourselves from "normal" society. We "walk the walk", not just "talk the talk" and it's our pleasure to share what we've learned.
Some of what we have learned has been by way of creating an intentional community here. People came to see if the life was for them and we got to study them as they paraded past us. Most were "survival tourists" – just looking for a reason NOT to have to actually change their life. (All "survival tourists" find their reason.) Others had a partner that needed convincing (something we never do – you either get it or you don't). Still others never even made it up the 28 miles of dirt road to meet us. In fact, we still have space for another person or family or two in the community. Email us and tell us about yourself to: email@example.com if you would like more information.
The greatest challenge we feel that most people will have to face in the coming upheaval between paradigms will be letting go of the old to make room for the new. It can be quite frightening to have to learn new ways of doing the most simple of daily chores:
• Cooking on a Wood Cook Stove – There aren't even any knobs!
• Communicating After TSHTF – What to do without the Internet
• Staying Healthy – In Natural ways
• What must I have? –And what can I do without?
So, let's start off with some off-grid power tips:
Tip One: Many people have bought Harbor Freight 45 watt solar panels. The controller box that comes with those is not very high quality and many opt to use the solar panels without a controller box. Using the bare power from the solar panels can cause the power to reverse directions at night. That means the power the solar panels put into the batteries during the day goes back into the solar panels at night instead of remaining in the storage batteries. A simple devise called a blocking diode can prevent that from happening on any solar panel.
Most solar panels have a wiring box on the back of the panel. Inside the panel you can install the blocking diode at the positive terminal. All diodes have horizontal line at the top of the diode. This line indicates the direction that the power will flow. Install the diode so that the power leaves the solar panel and stays in the battery.
Tip Two: When installing your off the grid solar power, consider well where you put your solar panels, fuse box, and batteries. Nicola Tesla, the greatest scientist who ever lived, created alternating current. and that is good thing. The advantage that Alternating Current (AC) has over Direct Current (DC – the type of electricity that comes out of a solar panel or a wind generator) is that DC looses current (power) the longer the run of wire you use. In some cases you can loose as much as 1/10th of a volt per foot of wire used. This is why placement of your solar/wind power components is critical. The more wire you use, the more power you loose. So place your solar panels above where you have your battery box, place your fuse box on the inside wall from the battery box, and place any high wattage devices you intend to use reasonably close to where the fuse box is. With a little planning you can lessen the amount of power loss you experience.
If you have any questions about our tips or any survival/self-sufficient/off-grid topic, please feel free to write us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We're happy to answer your questions personally.
With some information that we will provide and some experience you provide, you'd be surprised at what you can accomplish. Nietzsche was right... "That which does not kill us makes us stronger." Boy, have we gotten strong! It's not about a display of opulence, it's about appreciating the simplicity of life, and the freedom that simplicity affords you.
There are lots of experts available to tell you how to build a chicken coop or build a house. Yes, we'll tell you our way. But we'll tell you more than just the "How-To s". We'll tell you how it feels when you can't get to town for a month or two. We'll tell you how it feels to run out of baking soda and have to make flat pancakes. And we'll tell you how it feels to see your seemingly little accomplishments, day by day, actually mean something toward your survival.
We'll also be discussing what it takes to be successful at this lifestyle under the skin: a brave heart and the understanding that despite these skills that we once had having been "schooled out of us", we are fully capable of standing on our own feet, depending on our own abilities and intuitions to maintain a good life and that personal freedom is attainable – if you choose it.
We look forward to seeing you all here as the weeks go on and we wish you all

By Herbalist Wendy Wilson
Webster's gives several definitions for constitution. One refers to a government's structure and the other refers to person's health and vitality. Today as a nation, America and individual Americans possess a weak constitution. We become weak when our defenses are down. Should we be surprised and can we become strong again? Let's take a look.
It should not be a surprise that America is in decline. The health of the land and its people are in a troubled state. If we have eyes to see and ears to hear we can turn this situation around. America is doing what countless other nations have done through the centuries; we have forgotten from whence we came.
The losses we are seeing are significant and we were warned this would happen. Some of them are:
Our Heritage Our Children
We have a growing number of women with fertility issues. So much so we have allopathic fertility clinics costing couples thousands of dollars for assisted reproductive technology offering the hope of having a baby. When some of our children are born they have health problems. According to the CDC, nearly 10% are low birth weight, 12% are premature and 27% die from sudden infant death syndrome or congenital deformities or low birth weight (Source http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/fastats/infant_health.htm and http://www.cdc.gov/reproductivehealth/data_stats/ ). Also, we have close to 1 million reported abortions performed annually in America .
Looking at the logo for the US National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) it says "Agriculture Counts." In 1905, the USDA Crop Reporting Board was created and is known today as the NASS. This entity was originally created to distribute crop and livestock stats to assist farmers but it worked against the farmer in the commodities market when it came to getting a fair price for goods. The agriculture which remains in the US has had to deal with new fungus and molds, drought, GMO's and government regulations destroying our crops. New disease threatens livestock brought about by shoddy animal husbandry, antibiotics and corrupted animal feed. America 's livestock industry has more than 25 diseases to deal with (Source:
According to the Royal Society of Biological Science the "discovery curve" for new viral pathogens is 10 to 20 new strains annually and we have identified at least 1400 pathogens (Source http://rspb.royalsocietypublishing.org/content/275/1647/2111.full). According to the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses, we are also seeing a disturbing increase in the number of what once was strictly an animal disease is now transferable to humans. You can see the increase in the number of diseases since 1901 here http://rspb.royalsocietypublishing.org/content/275/1647/2111.full.
I mentioned that we were warned this would happen. When? Where? Does the saying, "My people perish for lack of knowledge" ring a bell? Here is the instruction of Deuteronomy 28, which we've tossed aside. All instruction from God is beneficial.
"And it shall come to pass, if you hearken diligently unto the voice of the Lord God, to observe and do all His Commandments, the Lord God will set you above all nations of the earth. And these blessings will come upon you and overtake you; blessed in the city, blessed in the field, blessed is your offspring, blessed is your harvests and livestock, blessed be your storehouse and store, blessed you will be as come in and go out. He will destroy your enemy who rises up against you. If your enemy comes against you one way God makes them flee seven ways. And whatever you set your hand to do God will bless it."
Obviously these are the blessings if we seek the ways of God. If we don't, here is the warning.
"But it shall come to pass, if you will not hearken unto the voice of the Lord God, to observe and do all His commandments, His statutes which He commands, that all these curses shall come upon you and overtake you; cursed you will be in the city and in the field, cursed is your storehouse and store, cursed is your offspring, your harvests, your livestock. Cursed you will be when you come in and go out. The Lord God will curse all you set your hand to do and destroy you. God will bring upon you every sickness and every plague. The Lord will kill you with pestilence, consumption, fever, inflammation, burning, the sword, blasting and mildew until you perish. Your land will have drought and become dust. He will rise up your enemies to come against you, oppress you and remove your kingdom (country) from the earth."
Time after time throughout history when a nation sinned, God sent their enemies to destroy them. Does an American rule in the White House? Your enemy destroys you from within. Man has choices and free will and when it is exercised foolishly he sins; there are consequences and innocent people can get hurt. You can't get more innocent than an unborn child and our Supreme Court of the land ruled it was just to kill the likeness of God. Don't blame God, He spelled it out. We are unwise and destroy ourselves with sin.
"Wisdom is greater than strength." Eccl 9:16
We have the power to turn this around; if we stop our foolishness and seek God's help. The churches have "fallen away", bailed on their duty. However, each of us who believes in Jesus Christ has an individual duty called "the great commission." (Matt 28:18-20) If God be for us who can be against us? (Rom 8:31) Solomon summed it up this way; "Let us here the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God and keep His commandments; for this is the whole duty of man."(Eccl 11:13) Will God save America ? His will be done. It is up to us to seek His face, repent and humbly ask. Otherwise, we can expect the violence, lies, cheating, disease and death to escalate. Dr. Rebecca Carley has a radio show called What's Ailing America? I can tell you that according to the Word of God what is ailing American; it is sin. God is longsuffering (patient) but He eventually judges sin.

The Deadly Flu Pandemic
by Dr. Stefanie Gross-Rodstater
As World War I was coming to an end, more lives would soon be lost than the total from the entire war. The influenza pandemic of 1917-1918 claimed 25-40 million lives. This was the greatest plague of modern times.
Are we on the brink of another flu pandemic? Many scientists think so. There is concern that a current strain of the "bird" flu could be the next pandemic. It has already claimed the lives of a 14 people in Vietnam . If it mutates and becomes easily transmitted, it could kill millions.
If we had another influenza crisis, what would you do? A flu shot? Sorry, evidence indicates that the flu shots are ineffective. Former chief vaccine control officer of the FDA, J. Anthony Morris stated, "There is no evidence that any influenza vaccine thus far developed if effective or mitigating any attack of influenza." Could our population be ravaged again by another influenza pandemic?
Maybe there is hope. During the crisis in 1917-1918 chiropractors noticed that their patients weren't dying like the rest of the population. The chiropractic patients seemed to fair far better than the non-chiropractic patients. In Davenport Iowa , the chiropractic patients were much healthier. Medical doctors treated 93,590 influenza patients and 6,116 died. The flu killed 1 out 15 medically treated patients. Palmer College of Chiropractic adjusted 4,735 influenza patients and only 6 died. That's only 1 out of 886 of the chiropractic treated patients!
Research has supported that people under chiropractic care enjoy a healthier immune system. A healthier immune system means less sickness and infectious disease. Schedule to have your family evaluated today and enjoy a happier and healthier life.

HEMP – Miracle Plant or Evil Weed?
By Ty Bollinger
Did you know that early laws in some American colonies actually required farmers to grow hemp, and they could go to jail for refusing to grow it? Did you know that, according to their diaries, many of our early presidents, including George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, grew hemp? Did you know that the American Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the USA were both drafted on hemp paper? Did you know thatHenry Ford built an experimental car body out of hemp fiber, which is 10 times stronger than steel? Did you know that the first Model-T was actually built to run on hemp gasoline?
A February 1938 Popular Mechanics entitled "New Billion-Dollar Crop" (www.druglibrary.org/schaffer/hemp/popmech1.htm) stated that there are more than 25,000 uses for hemp from food, paint and fuel to clothing and construction materials. There are even hemp fibers in your Lipton® tea bags. And several cars made today contain hemp. One acre of hemp can produce as much raw fiber as 10 acres of trees. Pulping hemp for paper would produce a stronger paper that lasts incredibly long and doesn't yellow with age. Hemp oil (derived from hemp seeds) has long been recognized as one of the most versatile and beneficial substances known to man.
Derived from hemp seeds, hemp oil has long been recognized as one of the most versatile and beneficial substances known to man. Hemp is considered to be a superfood (like spirulina and chlorella) due to its high essential fatty acid content and the unique ratio of omega-3 to omega-6 and gamma linolenic acid (GLA). Hemp oil contains up to 5% of pure GLA, a much higher concentration than any other plant.
But that's not all. For millenia, hemp has been used in medicinal teas and tonics because of its healing properties. And, yes, it is an effective treatment for cancer. It not only relieves pain and helps with the appetite of cancer patients, it also has been shown to have curative properties. The chemicals in hemp (aka cannibis or marijuana) which are responsible for many of the medical benefits are called "cannabinoids." The most notable cannabinoid is "Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol" but most folks call it "THC."
As late as the 1930s in the USA, medicinal hemp tinctures with THC were available in most pharmacies. But in the 1940s, hemp was made illegal. But why would the US government outlaw a plant which has a plethora of useful applications? Big Pharma didn't like the non-toxic and inexpensive medicinal applications, that's why. Hemp was plentiful and inexpensive, and to make matters worse for the Medical Mafia, it didn't cause any additional medical conditions that required prescriptions for more poison. So, it was outlawed.
The medical evidence for the effectiveness of THC at treating cancer and also reducing pain is overwhelming. We have known this since 1974 when the first experiment documenting marijuana's anti-tumor effects took place at the Medical College of Virginia at the behest of the U.S. government and the National Institute of Health (NIH).
The purpose of the study was to show that marijuana damages the immune system and causes cancer. However, the study found instead that THC slowed the growth of three kinds of cancer in mice (lung and breast cancer, and a virus-induced leukemia). OOPS! We can't have that information made public can we? So, the DEA quickly shut down the Virginia study and all further research on the anti-cancer effects of marijuana ... even though the researchers found that THC cures cancer!!
In 2000, researchers in Madrid learned that the THC in hemp inhibits the spread of brain cancer through selectively inducing programmed cell death (apoptosis) in brain tumor cells without negatively impacting surrounding healthy cells. They were able to destroy incurable brain tumors in rats by injecting them with THC. [Guzman et al. 2000. Anti-tumoral action of cannabinoids: involvement of sustained ceramide accumulation and extracellular signal-regulated kinase activation. Nature Medicine 6: 313-319].
But sadly, most Americans don't know anything about the Madrid discovery, since virtually no major US newspapers carried the story.
In 2004, Guzman and colleagues reported that hemp's cannabinoids inhibited glioma tumor growth in animals and in human glioblastomamultiforme tumor samples. Writing in the August 2004 issue of Cancer Research, investigators concluded, "The present laboratory and clinical findings provide a novel pharmacological target for cannabinoid-based therapies." [Guzman et al. 2004. Cannabinoids inhibit the vascular endothelial growth factor pathways in gliomas. Cancer Research 64: 5617-5623] (A 2007 Harvard Medical School study (published in Science Daily ) showed that the THC in hemp decreased lung cancer tumors by 50% and significantly reduces the ability of the cancer to metastasize (spread). Other researchers have also shown that THC is an effective treatment for Hodgkin's disease and Kaposi's Sarcoma. A recent study out of Thailand demonstrated that THC can also fight bile duct cancer, which is rare and deadly. As a matter of fact, the International Medical Verities Association is including hemp oil on its cancer protocol.
After he successfully treated his terminal cancer with hemp oil, Rick Simpson(www.phoenixtears.ca/) has been leading the way to promote hemp oil as a viable cancer treatment. Ironically, on November 25th, 2009, one day before he was crowned the Freedom Fighter of the Year 2009 at the Cannabis Cup in Amsterdam, Simpson received word that he had been raided again by the RCMP in Canada. Simpson has been heavily persecuted for his stance on medicinal marijuana and for his efforts to help folks cure their cancer with hemp oil.
Studies have also shown that cannabinoids (and endocannabinoids) inhibit the proliferation of other various cancers, including:
• Breast cancer
• Colorectal cancer
• Prostate cancer
• Gastric (stomach) cancer
• Skin cancer
• Leukemia and lymphoma
• Lung cancer
• Uterine cancer
• thyroid cancer
• Pancreatic cancer
• Cervical cancer
• Mouth cancer
• Cholangiocarcinoma (billary tract cancer)
Folks, I definitely believe that we are living in the matrix! Almost every natural substance that God created (such as hemp, apricot seeds, and sunlight) is considered to be "dangerous" while toxic drugs being pushed by Big Pharma are considered to be safe! It is legal for doctors to attack people with their poisons but you can go to jail for trying to save yourself or a loved one from cancer with the oil of a simple garden weed or the seed of a simple fruit.
The science for the use of hemp oil is overwhelming. It should be produced and distributed to each and every cancer patient that needs it. But the reality is that we live in a corrupt world run by the Medical Mafia who would rather make money while cancer patients die cruel deaths than to give them access to a non-toxic and effective natural cancer treatment like hemp oil.
On March 29, 2001, the San Antonio Current printed a story by Raymond Cushing titled, "Pot Shrinks Tumors - Government Knew in '74" which detailed government and media suppression of news about marijuana cancer benefits. Cushing noted in his article that it was hard to believe that the knowledge that cannabis can be used to fight cancer has been suppressed for almost thirty years and aptly concluded his article by saying: "Millions of people have died horrible deaths and in many cases, families exhausted their savings on dangerous, toxic and expensive drugs. Now we are just beginning to realize that while marijuana has never killed anyone, marijuana prohibition has killed millions."

What's Ailing America?
by Rebecca Carley, MD
As I always say, having the title "What's Ailing America?" for my radio shows and this newsletter gives me an infinite list of answers to that question. One of my biggest frustrations is the great number of people who apparently beLIEve that if they ignore what the psychopaths are doing, it won't affect them; or, if they "go along to get along" and remain on their knees (or sell their souls for cash to do the bidding of the psychopaths), that they will be left alone. And then there are the people who have investigated many of these topics and know what is going on, yet beLIEve that it is "too late" there is nothing that can be done to stop this global depopulation agenda under the "New World Order". This is a most ingenious tactic! Get the slave work units to beLIEve that there is nothing they can do to stop the destruction of everything that matters (despite the fact that people of conscience are in the great majority). Distract the masses with "dancing with the stars", NFL referees who make bad calls, etc. As I witnessed the outrage of so many men to the bad calls of the scab referees, I find myself screaming on the inside "this is where your outrage lies, when they are killing and maiming your children and pets right in your face? Men are supposed to be the protectors of their families! Not to mention the very planet we live on where 19 species disappear every day due to the destruction caused by the psychopaths that control our world. It is not just Rome burning as the fiddling continues it is the whole planet. There are technologies available to reverse the damage that is being done by these psychopaths, but the treason and crimes against humanity must be stopped.
I am a guest on internet radio shows almost every day at this point, besides the 3 shows of my own every weekend; (to access the archives of many of my shows over the last few years, go to http://thelightofdayradioshow.com/archives/RBN-BACKUP/commercialFree.html). There are people of conscience all over the world who realize that all we need is a critical mass of people with a conscience to rise up and say "no more". An amazing man I have known for a number of years is investigative journalist Lloyd Aguilar, who I met when we both lived in New York. He has since moved back to Jamaica, the island on which he was born because he saw the genocide occurring there with bioweapon vaccines. The pressure on parents to inoculate their children with disease is even worse in Jamaica than it is in the states. And when the children die, vaccines are always denied as the cause despite the fact they are the self evident cause. There is one case of a baby who died within 24 hours of his vaccine assaults. This occurred a year ago, and the medical examiner has still not come up with the autopsy report listing the cause of death. Lloyd is their worst nightmare, because he continues to cover this story to keep it before the public. He is now working with 2 fathers whose children have already suffered obvious vaccine damage and are refusing to ever vaccinate their children again. He accompanied these fathers to a meeting with the "ministry of health" in Jamaica, the main agency there which pushes vaccines (and is therefore in reality the ministry of death and disease). In their meeting, Lloyd brought up the death of this boy a year ago less than 24 hours after he received his vaccines. The answer made by the ministry of health minion was that it has not been proven the death was vaccine induced! As with all vaccine induced diseases and death, denial that such is possible is the position always taken by those promoting this insane practice. So Lloyd has decided to follow the money. He is tracking the payoffs made by Glaxo Smith Kline to these "health" minions, as well as other conflicts of interest which should preclude any collaboration resulting in vaccine mandates. This reminded me of an outstanding article in my files published in 2005 entitled "A Dragon by the Tail" which revealed the massive corruption and fraud involving multiple agencies promoting vaccines. You can access this article at http://www.whale.to/vaccines/reagan.html . I STRONGLY suggest you download this article and add it to other vaccine documents I have previously informed you about in this newsletter. These are your weapons against those aiming a needle full of poison at your loved ones. You will read in that article about Senate Bill 3, demonstrating the treason being committed by the traitors in the district of criminals. In fact, the family of Senator Bill Frist of TN (who sat on 2 committees involved in this bill) was found to be guilty of fraud involving their Hospital Corporation of America (HCA) company, and ordered to pay the largest fraud settlement in history $1.7 BILLION. NO ONE WENT TO JAIL. Frist was anointed as majority leader in the Senate as this went down. (http://www.laweekly.com/2003-01-16/news/the-bad-doctor).
