Liberty Suppressed


Justin Smith tackles the assault on American Liberty and a Free Market Economy. The threat: Left-Wing lies as truth and the slow criminalizing of what has made America Great.

Liberty Suppressed

Freedom and Liberty Are At Risk

 

By Justin O. Smith

Independence Day is a now a day that has no real meaning for far too many Americans today, as nearly half the nation works tirelessly to destroy our republic and the principles it was founded upon, and the rest of us can barely believe that some who want to lead the nation, Democrat communists and Republican globalists (RINOs), hold a vision, that would reduce us all to serfs serving the government rather than the government serving the will of the people; and a good portion of both sides simply want a barbecue and a good time.  America’s domestic enemies see state power as paramount over individual liberty, and unless America’s youth starts standing up and remembering how much blood was shed for their freedom and the rights they so casually abuse as they trash America in so many ways, from their anti-American speeches to their attempts to destroy the basis of America and our Judeo-Christian principles, everyone, my children and grandchildren and yours too, face dangerous times ahead.

 

Anyone who listened to Presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren share her horror over states making gains in halting abortion understand that true liberty and individual rights, even states’ rights, mean nothing to the Democrats. Warren called for a federal law that codifies Roe v Wade, with the certain knowledge that the federal government treasury would be used to coerce states to fall in line, as has been done regarding so many other federal laws.

 

Even at the local city and county governments, citizens witness elected officials, claiming to be “conservatives”  — who think they know better than the people — go against the will of the people, just as the city council in Murfreesboro, TN and  also Rutherford County council did recently when they voted a thirty-five percent and six percent tax increase respectively to pay for services and pay raises and to preserve a government “savings account”.

 

Our republic uses democratic mechanisms to govern, while certain checks and balances and the Bill of Rights were also put in place to protect the individual’s rights. The principle of good governance as set forth by Thomas Jefferson and many of the Founding Fathers acknowledges that the rights of the individual are paramount over anything else one might consider in any government.

 

Read the unredacted parchment drafted by Thomas Jefferson. It presents an important distinction, in that it reads the “Unanimous Declaration of the Thirteen United States of America”, not the “Declaration of the United States of America.

These were thirteen independent states, on that hot summer day in 1776, not a “United” States in the singular, a State to be held together at gunpoint or through coercion, and these sovereign states were comprised of sovereign individuals who gave their consent to be governed, not ruled. However, today a stark contrast exists between the single State governed by the central authority of the federal government and the once sovereign states that have become nothing more than administrative districts.

 

Since 1865, “consent of the governed” has become a heretical phrase and must not be spoken of due to its implications. No one now living consented to such an all-powerful centralized government, and if consent is a moral prerequisite to legitimate government, the government of the United States — the singular behemoth, the Leviathan — is illegitimate on the face of it. And we have allowed ourselves to become subjects, not citizens, speaking holistically, since some of Us have fought government intrusions on individual liberty and states’ rights all our adult lives.

 

Think You’re “free”? Try not paying excessive taxes, as we recall that the War of Independence was fought, in part due to the Stamp Act of 1765 and the Tea Act of 1773 and three pennies added to the cost of a pound of tea.

 

The fact that government can levy an excessive tax against Us today and take any amount of our money it arbitrarily determines is “fair” belies the notion we are free. Whatever of our own finances we retain is only by sufferance and not by right.

 

Even though you are an adult, who is responsible for your own choices concerning your safety, try not fastening your seat-belt as you cruise down the highway on a sunny Saturday drive.

 

One never really owns their property either. No matter how much one paid for it or how many years it has been paid off in full, one is forced to continue paying money to a government whose exactions and existence were never consented to by him.

 

And for many Americans, such as President Trump and even myself, who have often stated, “America will never be a socialist country”, America is already well on its way to being just that, if not an authoritarian fascist state, noted by Italian dictator Benito Mussolini to be “corporatism” and the “merger of corporate and state power”. Think of “too big to fail“, Bear Stearns and American International Group and the 2008 economic collapse and today’s Big Tech subsidies.

 

America began a major slide into fascism around 1913, and from that point on, when America enacted many of the ideas enumerated in Marx’s ‘Communist Manifesto’,  like a progressive income tax, a national centralized bank,  government ownership of land, government ownership and control of communications and transportation, government schools, regulation of installment buying, price controls and farm subsidies (corporate farms), government housing, social security and “free” education, and several other items. This has essentially resulted from a convergence of capitalism and socialism, a bit at a time, and not only has it slowly destroyed our economy (note that the current economic “boom” won’t last) education and the nation’s moral compass, it gave rise to the utter corruption of our political system and the Deep State.

 

By contrast, in a true capitalist system an actual free-market exists that is unfettered by government interference, finding its own level as the market demands at any given time. Supply and demand are self-regulating, and government controls are unnecessary limitations on economic freedom.

 

Today, far too many Americans have come to see government as their “rescuer” in their longing to have every need met by someone else. They expect government to solve all their problems, and that’s a real problem, since everything the government “gives” us exacts a price from our individual liberty, not to mention that D.C. draws sociopaths to it like a pile of cow manure draws flies.

 

Just as in Venezuela, our Deep State actors, in cooperation with billionaire socialist George Soros, have been most thorough in representing the current economy as a “capitalist economy”, even though America has not had a truly free-market capitalist system in over a hundred years, and they have facilitated full socialism into the political realm. And, when our economy finally does collapse under the weight of the current out-of-control spending and the ever growing fascism and socialism, these anti-American, anti-freedom authoritarians will attempt to fool Americans that capitalism is the problem and socialism is the cure, laying the blame at the feet of capitalism.

 

The socialist Presidential candidates, such as Bernie Sanders, who wants to forgive all university tuition debt and make healthcare “FREE” also, argue that “capitalism” has failed, and while it is true that the gap between the rich and poor is greater today than it has ever been in modern times, and that the middle class is shrinking and the elite oligarchy of the upper class is growing wealthier, it is due to the insertion of socialist policies into the economy. Pointing to capitalism as the problem is based on more falsehoods and fallacies than I can list; such claims are undeniably false.

Capitalism has not failed, but rest assured that the socialists’ dream of making education and healthcare — the two largest rackets in America — “free” only further ensures that Americans will be turned into debt slaves and bankrupts; and, to date, socialism has always failed in the basic mission to prepare young minds for life’s reality and to “first do no harm.”

 

All of the socialists’ policies in education and healthcare would still do nothing to reform the patent idiocies of the gender studies departments and the current misinterpretation and application of Title IX that infringes on heterosexual rights. Those policies also cannot rescue the “victims” of self-inflicted obesity and diabetes from their toxic consumption of Big Macs, Frosty dairy desserts and fries, since these dynamics rest on the wheels of futility, often depression and self-loathing, for which there is no happy ending outside of drastic changes in behavior.

 

One must also fully understand governments, especially under Obama and even under President Trump, always move in a direction of more control; just look the politicization of the IRS, FBI and the DOJ and the passage of the FISA Reauthorization, bump stock regulation and various new bill proposals. Given enough time, governments always create a state of despotism, and historically, governments never voluntarily reverse their level of control and introduce greater liberty.

 

Although the number is disputed by some, even President Ronald Reagan once noted that there are roughly 20,000 laws regarding gun control alone, and that’s just the federal illegitimate “laws”. So many other “laws” exist that it’s been estimated the average American commits approximately three felonies each day, and this makes the authorities’ task very simple, if for any reason they wish to victimize you. Just ask the Bundy Family, Hammond father & son, LaVoy Finicum’s Family, Lt. General Michael Flynn and Michael Cohen and a few others.

 

Thomas Jefferson once stated: “Even under the best forms of government, those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny.”

 

God help America if the Democrats take the majority in the Congress and the Oval Office anytime in the near future and implement a more stringent and authoritarian form of the morally corrupt, economy destroying and de-civilizing ideology of socialism and the sick social system it embodies. Their system must be exposed for all the obnoxious, abhorrent and hellacious ideas it represents.

 

Too large a segment of America no longer cares for individualism, free markets, personal freedom and free minds, and in fact, they now mock the very virtues America was founded upon. They may have some ill-formed, nebulous notion on ethics that they borrowed from the Boy Scouts, but they basically assert that socialism and communism are as equally good as capitalism, while their reigning philosophy is a mixture of Marxism, identity politics, anti-male feminism and anti-white racism.

 

The institutional damage along the way has been epic, and the scene today is a debris field of broken ideas, that strayed far and away from the Founding Principles and the Original Intent of the U.S. Constitution. The far left still advocates the failed Marxist vision as having national support and purpose, as they rush to implement and organize a chaotic demolition of pretty rigorous American values and traditions and even historic monuments and paintings, in their insane desire to eradicate our republic, a country that still may be the “home of the brave” but is now barely recognizable as the “land of the free”.

 

America is the only country in the history of mankind that was founded on the principles of individualism and personal freedom, that manifested in the early rugged American independent nature of America’s people. America is still special, still unique and still that Oh So Exceptional nation that has millions across the globe rushing towards Her shores, even if it’s becoming harder to see the fact and the light of liberty shining from Lady Liberty’s torch is growing dimmer each day.

 

As the Founders’ spin in their graves, America is now rapidly nearing the point of the ultimate inversion, where the government is free to do anything it pleases and our individual liberty is suppressed and we must bow to the altar of the state and beg permission to act. And this is the stage of the darkest times of human history, the stage of total dominance and rule by violence and brute force.

 

Is it too late to restore and save our beloved America? Nothing is ever too late if it serves a righteous cause, and I defy anyone to name any better causes for Us to firmly stand together and defend than our God Given Rights, the Bill of Rights and individual liberty in America, even if it takes us into the streets of our nation in armed conflict and civil war.

 

A certain chapter in American history is closing and the future of America and freedom is at risk. Those of Us who love freedom and liberty and America must grab hold of the moment to seize the 21st century for our children’s children and their children and generations beyond to ensure their economic prosperity and liberty and a 21st century that becomes all the Founders envisioned, full of an appreciation for life and all America originally represented, God’s glory and grace.

Observations From an Indignant Millennial


The Republic handed down to Americans by our Founders is threatened less from without and more within. Daily the American media and Marxist oriented Dems brainwash Americans that Liberty and Christian values that has led to the best Republic in world is now an anachronistic evil in need of drastic Socialist/Humanist transformation. The American Left’s call for transformation is a classic calling good evil and evil good.

 

This Republic’s ONLY hope is with younger generations waking up to what is being lost by becoming aware of what preserves Liberty, Free Enterprise and a Virtuous Society.

 

Mark Alexander discovered a Millennial in Alyssa Ahlgren who has awakened from the slumber of Socialist/Humanist tyranny.

Observations From an Indignant Millennial

Perspective from a bold young woman who has departed the lockstep leftist orthodoxy of her peers.

 

By Mark Alexander 

June 19, 2019

The Patriot Post

 

“I had always hoped that the younger generation receiving their early impressions after the flame of liberty had been kindled in every breast … would have sympathized with oppression wherever found, and proved their love of liberty beyond their own share of it.” —Thomas Jefferson (1814)

 

Alyssa Ahlgren – ADVICE FROM A MILLENNIAL

 

Having read my recent column, “Courage Is the Missing Millennial Link,” our long-time Patriot Post friend Foster Friess, a national advocate for policies that are important to all Americans, sent me a copy of an essay that was penned by a young millennial. But it was not an essay from a typical millennial.

 

Given that I am away with national board obligations this week — ironically with a company that is the nation’s largest distributor of character education curriculums for young people — I thought this essay about the values of young people would be a good subject for this column in my absence.

 

It was written by Alyssa Ahlgren, a self-described “millennial/hipster” who’s earning an MBA while working as an analyst in corporate finance. In other words, she doesn’t have time to join the useful idiots among her age group who spend their time denouncing the United States and perpetrating political violence.

 

To the contrary, Alyssa is among those bold young women who have departed the lockstep leftist orthodoxy of her peers, particularly her female peers, who blindly subscribe to the Demo-Party group think. She offers a timely perspective on her generation, and their lack of appreciation for the Liberty and privilege they have inherited from previous generations.

 

Here are Alyssa’s observations, with minor edits for clarity:

 

I’m sitting in a small coffee shop near Nokomis trying to think of what to write about. I scroll through my newsfeed on my phone looking at the latest headlines of Democratic candidates calling for policies to “fix” the so-called injustices of capitalism. I put my phone down and continue to look around. I see people talking freely, working on their MacBooks, ordering food they get in an instant, seeing cars go by outside, and it dawned on me.

 

We live in the most privileged time in the most prosperous nation and we’ve become completely blind to it. Vehicles, food, technology, freedom to associate with whom we choose. These things are so ingrained in our American way of life we don’t give them a second thought. We are so well off here in the United States that our poverty line begins 31 times above the global average. Thirty. One. Times.

 

Virtually no one in the United States is considered poor by global standards. Yet, in a time where we can order a product off of Amazon with one click and have it at our doorstep the next day, we are unappreciative, unsatisfied, and ungrateful. Our lack of appreciation is evident as the popularity of socialist policies among my generation continues to grow.

 

Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez recently said to Newsweek talking about the millennial generation, “An entire generation, which is now becoming one of the largest electorates in America, came of age and never saw American prosperity.”

 

Never saw American prosperity. Let that sink in. When I first read that statement, I thought to myself, that was quite literally the most entitled and factually illiterate thing I’ve ever heard in my 26 years on this earth. Now, I’m not attributing Miss Ocasio-Cortez’s words to outright dishonesty. I do think she whole-heartedly believes the words she said to be true.

 

Many young people agree with her, which is entirely misguided. My generation is being indoctrinated by a mainstream narrative to actually believe we have never seen prosperity. I know this first hand, I went to college, let’s just say I didn’t have the popular opinion, but I digress.

 

Let me lay down some truths.

 

The United States of America has lifted more people out of abject poverty, spread more freedom and democracy, and has created more innovation in technology and medicine than any other nation in human history. Not only that but our citizenry continually breaks world records with charitable donations, the rags to riches story is not only possible in America but not uncommon, we have the strongest purchasing power on earth, and we encompass 25% of the world’s GDP.

 

The list goes on. However, these truths don’t matter. We are told that income inequality is an existential crisis (even though this is not an indicator of prosperity, some of the poorest countries in the world have low-income inequality), we are told that we are oppressed by capitalism (even though it’s brought about more freedom and wealth to the most people than any other system in world history), we are told that the only way we will acquire the benefits of true prosperity is through socialism and centralization of federal power (even though history has proven time and again this only brings tyranny and suffering).

 

Why then, with all of the overwhelming evidence around us, evidence that I can even see sitting at a coffee shop, do we not view this as prosperity? We have people who are dying to get into our country. People around the world destitute and truly impoverished. Yet, we have a young generation convinced they’ve never seen prosperity, and as a result, elect politicians dead set on taking steps towards abolishing capitalism.

 

Why? The answer is this: My generation has ONLY seen prosperity. We have no contrast. We didn’t live in the Great Depression, or live through two world wars, or see the rise and fall of socialism and communism. We don’t know what it’s like to live without the internet and smartphones. We don’t have a lack of prosperity problem. We have an entitlement problem, an ungratefulness problem, and it’s spreading like a plague.

 

With the current political climate giving rise to the misguided idea of a socialist utopia, will we see the light? Or will we have to lose it all to realize that what we have now is true prosperity? Destroying the free market will undo what millions of people have died to achieve.

 

My generation is becoming the largest voting bloc in the country. We have an opportunity to continue to propel us forward with the gifts capitalism and democracy have given us.

 

The other option is that we can fall into the [Bernie Sanders] trap of entitlement and [lapse] into restrictive socialist destitution. The choice doesn’t seem too hard, does it?

Long Live Freedom


King Obama Unconstitutional

Justin Smith provides some very legitimate thoughts on President Barack Hussein Obama’s unconstitutional actions with his pen and phone. Just a heads up there is a section in Justin’s essay that addresses the wealthy elites of the late 19th and early 20th using their Capitalistic attained riches to advance socialistic agendas in Great Britain (these days now more often referred to as United Kingdom).
 
The families Justin writes about are the Morgans, Rockefellers and Rothschilds. These three names are high fruit on the Conspiracy Theory tree. The Rothschild family holds a particular venom from antisemitic Conspiracy Theorists. (Debunking the NWO spun by Rothschild family: HERE, HERE, HERE & HERE. Promoting Rothschild family NWO laced with antisemitism: HERE and HERE.)
 
I am certain that the Conspiracy Theorists will come out of the word work with Justin’s post. (Incidentally on a personal level I believe there are some facts involved in the theories, but that the theories too often go off into a ditch on the Left or the Right side of the road.) Justin’s essay is specifically an attack on Obama’s unconstitutional Executive Orders.

Long Live Freedom

Es lebe die Freiheit” [Long live freedom] – Hans Scholl’s [Jewish Virtual Library] last words (White Rose opposition to Hitler)
 
American freedom and liberty, as envisioned by the Founding Fathers’ Original Intent, are being rapidly destroyed by Obama and the Progressive Democrat fascists, who are advancing the U.S. government towards autocratic and dictatorial rule. They are destroying our Shining City on the Hill, through statist policies rife with the cancers of economic and cultural Marxism and other insidious tactics that are eradicating our traditions, national sovereignty and the historical memory of the American people, and Americans must find the determination and courage to fight this anti-American Progressive movement through every means available.
 
Too often, the Republican Party advances the Progressive agenda, inadvertently or not, through its own statist propensity and love of protected markets and monopolies, despite its protestations of being completely “conservative” and 100% for free market capitalism. During the 2008 economic crisis, fascism became the rule of the day, and the interests of the American people were sacrificed in order to save huge economic conglomerates like AIG, which were deemed “too big to fail.”
 
In 1920, H.G. Wells explained: “Big Business is in no means antipathetic to Communism. The larger the business grows the more it approximates Collectivism. It is the upper road of the few instead of the lower road of the masses to collectivism.”
 
Many men, such as the Morgans, the Rockefellers and the Rothschilds, funded the socialist takeover of Great Britain, and these very same men helped President Woodrow Wilson create the Federal Reserve Bank (centralized credit) and a heavy progressive income tax, two of the Ten Tenets of Communism; in this context, control of one-sixth of the United States economy through the Affordable Health Care Act by the federal government and future Progressive regimes, like Obama’s, puts us all on an open road to serfdom and a new authoritarian world in America.
 
Mayer Amschel Rothschild often stated, “Let me issue and control a nation’s money supply, and I care not who makes its laws.”
 
In this sense, one must question the moral clarity of vision and the political and legal understanding and knowledge of Republicans, such as Representatives Bruce Polinquin (Maine), Bob Dold (Illinois) and John Katko (New York), since they voted against the repeal of the ACA [Obamacare] in February. They were more interested in “fixing” its flaws and having replacement legislation ready. These politicians are symptomatic of the problem America faces.
 
Who do these Republicans represent after all? Certainly not conservative America.
 
Free market economies do not need the imprimatur of any government in order to decide what is acceptable to the people. Consumers must be free to decide on purchases for themselves, and health care providers should supply plans that are acceptable to the free market. If they cannot, the consumers’ purchases will guide the market, without government collusion or coercion.
 
In a July 2012 appearance on Fox News Sunday, Senator Mitch McConnell contradicts his October 2014 assertion that 60 votes would be needed in the Senate to repeal Obamacare, as he states: “The Chief Justice said (Obamacare) it’s a tax. Taxes are clearly reconcilable (in the budget). That’s the kind of measure that can be pursued with 51 votes in the Senate.”
 
Shortly after the House voted to repeal Obamacare (239 to 186) on February 3rd, 2015, Senator Ted Cruz told CNS News: “If it can be passed with reconciliation, it can be repealed with reconciliation. And we need to use every procedural means possible to stop the train wreck that is Obamacare.”
 
Following the G.B. Shaw template to advance a Utopian Hell in America [“Bernard Shaw and Totalitarianism” and “The Language of Degeneration: Eugenic Ideas in…”], Obama has used deception and subverted U.S. law. He has also formed a despotic habit of legislating from the Oval Office, which is not a legitimate and Constitutional function of the Executive Branch.
 
Far from “prosecutorial discretion”, Obama’s most recent executive order grants five million illegal aliens “executive amnesty”, social security cards, three years of Earned Income Credit back-payments and $25,000 each from U.S. taxpayer money, even though they never paid any taxes. This is illegal and unconstitutional, and Obama is breaking U.S. law, as he helps other criminals in the process.
 
Obama’s illegal “executive amnesty” is an overt attempt to change the face of America and legitimize a mass of people, who are greatly inclined to vote Democrat. This is, in large part, aimed specifically at turning Texas into a Democrat majority state, ensuring that Progressives will be virtually unstoppable election after election and far into the future.
 
Where is the aggressive action against Obama’s “executive amnesty” that Senate Majority Leader McConnell, Speaker Boehner and many other establishment Republicans promised?
 
Sadly, America learned on March 3rd that 75 pathetic Republicans had joined 182 more pathetic Democrats to fund the Department of Homeland Security, as the succumbed to the false narrative that refusing to fund DHS and Obama’s executive amnesty would adversely affect national security. This legislation also funds Obama’s executive amnesty, and in the process, it severely damages Congressional power for years to come.
 
Didn’t any of these 75 republicans consider that the large number of crimes committed by these illegal aliens against U.S. citizens is a matter of national security?
 
A brilliant thinker and founder of Eagle Forum, Phyllis Schlafly recently exclaimed: “It’s an insult to everyone who voted to elect the Republicans in the last Congressional election. The American people clearly voted against Obama’s illegal, unconstitutional bills of all kinds … He’s a disaster for our country, and he doesn’t have our national security at heart.”
 
And now, Obama is planning an egregious infringement on our Second Amendment rights by banning 5.62 mm M855 ammo through executive order, because it pierces soft-body armor. This is a deception aimed at the eventual ban on all firearms and ammo, since 168 other rounds (e.g. .308, .223, 30.06) also pierce soft-body armor. If he proceeds, everyone should fill the Oval Office with .223 ammo, by way of UPS or 3000 feet per second muzzle velocity, depending on one’s vision for America – Let Your Conscience Be Your Guide.
 
Even in America vigilance is required to keep freedom and liberty alive. The Progressives of both parties hold, in part or whole, post-Constitutional ideas that advance Obama’s fundamental transformation, which eradicates our Founding Principles and traditional precepts concerning the rule of law. They are advancing this Progressive agenda through illegitimate, extralegal and illegal means, as they assault our American Heritage and place many Americans in an unendurable situation, which will eventually lead to armed rebellion, unless any future Statesmen can successfully repel this tide of fascism: If not, the Sons and Daughters of Liberty will fight once more in order to restore Constitutional governance and the Republic in Our Beloved America.

Appreciate your Thanksgiving while YOU Can


First Thanksgiving. Jean Leon Gerome Ferris (1899)

John R. Houk
© November 26, 2014
 
My childhood years were in the 1960s. I tend to remember the good times nostalgically more than times when this only child found himself in moments of parental discipline. For me the 60s might be viewed as a combination of “Leave it to Beaver” and “The Sandlot”.
 
 
 
 
Those videos reflect fun memories of a sixties childhood.
 
Now didn’t grow up in an overtly Christian household; however the lifestyle reflected prevalent values of most Americans whether or not they were Church-going. The memories that stand out often come down to holidays and vacations. Where I grew up Central Washington the month of November was typically the beginning of some cold days. Some of those cold days might even include some snow. As a kid I was not a big fan of horsing around in the cold. As Thanksgiving Day drew closer the days tended to be colder. Unless the kids in the neighborhood could coax me outside I was typically a couch potato during the cold.
 
Thanks largely to Grade School history lessons on Thanksgiving and the Pilgrims I became stoked for television specials with Thanksgiving themes. In those days those specials were numerous whether they were animation based or live action. Those stories of Thanksgiving were designed to imprint children with a favorable view of the holiday.
 
All that was a positive narrative of the Thanksgiving story were there: Pilgrim travels, the Mayflower voyage and learning to survive in the New World after landing on Plymouth Rock. The surviving part was typically portrayed as a rough winter, uncertain relation with Indians, Indian friendship, Indian mentoring and followed with the Pilgrims conquering their habitat ending with a feast of their farming success, wild turkey hunting and the Indians sharing of hunted deer.
 
The positive conclusion was giving thanks to God Almighty for prosperity, overcoming hardship and peace and harmony with the Pilgrims’ Indian neighbors. (I am fairly certain the Pilgrims would have no idea of what a Native American was. Indeed words that were not necessarily meant as a pejorative were probably closer to Savage, Red Man or Redskin. I wonder what appellations the Indians used for White America.) AND thus all’s well that ends well, right?
 
The reality is that bad things happened to the Pilgrims. They first fled to the Netherlands. Then cultural concerns pertaining to Pilgrim children assimilating into Dutch culture began to be a concern. Dutch culture was a bit looser than the Puritan-Separatist Christian culture promoted by the Pilgrims. The Pilgrims were experiencing Religious Freedom but their identity as faithful Christians was becoming compromised.
 
The Pilgrims fled England to escape the Religious intolerance of the Crown’s Church of England and now they intended to move again to escape the worldly influence of the Dutch majority. America became that choice. The Pilgrims thus organized to sail from the Netherlands back to England and on to the New World of America. They had to get a “patent or license” from a royal English company for land to colonize. The business venture the Pilgrims worked with was the Virginia Company of London.
 
The Pilgrims sought Crown permission for the religious liberty to practice their Puritan faith. The King did not specifically come through with the request, BUT neither did he deny it. The Pilgrims took the absence of religious instructions as a sign of favor and thus planned for the voyage.
 
The original contingent for the voyage was actually a mixture of the Puritan-Pilgrims and not so religious “adventurers”. The two components of the trip ultimately had different agendas upon landing and working with the patent to establish a company plantation.
 
The Pilgrims desired Religious Liberty and to be missionaries to the Native Americans. The adventurers were looking for a stake find economic self-sufficiency that wasn’t available in jolly old England. There was contention between the two groups. It didn’t help when the second ship of the venture forced the Mayflower to return to England because the second ship (Speedwell) would not have made it across the Atlantic Ocean without sinking. Pilgrims and adventurers not deterred by frustrated loaded up on the crowded Mayflower to sail to the Hudson Bay area.
 
The Mayflower made it to Cape Cod (the Plymouth Rock-Massachusetts area) after just a little over two months. Their Patent was for a location further north along the coast. Stormy seas prevent the Mayflower to make its destination. The Pilgrims thus decided to return to the Cape Cod area seeing the stormy whether as a sign from God.
 
The contention between the two groups eventually led to a dispute about the rules and who should obey them, especially they decided to build in a place outside their original patent. After a bit of disharmony the passengers of the Mayflower put together a compact that would be the foundation for self-government at least until the Patent issue was straightened out. The heads male heads of the Mayflower families signed the agreement as binding which became known as the Mayflower Compact:
 
IN THE NAME OF GOD, AMEN. We, whose names are underwritten, the Loyal Britain, France, and Ireland, King, Defender of the Faith, &c. Having undertaken for the Glory of God, and Advancement of the Christian Faith, and the Honour of our King and Country, a Voyage to plant the first Colony in the northern Parts of Virginia; Do by these Presents, solemnly and mutually, in the Presence of God and one another, covenant and combine ourselves together into a civil Body Politick, for our better Ordering and Preservation, and Furtherance of the Ends aforesaid: And by Virtue hereof do enact, constitute, and frame, such just and equal Laws, Ordinances, Acts, Constitutions, and Officers, from time to time, as shall be thought most meet and convenient for the general Good of the Colony; unto which we promise all due Submission and Obedience. IN WITNESS whereof we have hereunto subscribed our names at Cape-Cod the eleventh of November, in the Reign of our Sovereign Lord King James, of England, France, and Ireland, the eighteenth, and of Scotland the fifty-fourth, Anno Domini; 1620.

Yeah take that Left Wing history revisionists. The Mayflower Compact is an example of other Charters, Patents and License dedicating government to God and King.
 
In the first years of the Plymouth Colony the form of government under God ironically resembled Socialism more than Free Market Capitalism. The Pilgrim placed all their food in a common store available to all equally. The fruits of the labor were also a part of this common store. The effect of this socialism was the lazy majority began to depend on the working few for sustenance. The first two years of the Plymouth Colony was the experience of the lack of food, which resulted in starvation, disease and death. Many of the colony became thieves and stole from the common store rather than work productively to perpetuate the utopian dream of equal sufficiency for all. The few working colonialists that suffered lack began to be frustrated when all their work was divided among the slacker majority.
 
But, with no shelter, and immune systems weakened by the rough voyage, they began to get sick. Colds became bronchitis, and pneumonia set in. The dreaded killer of ship’s passengers—scurvy—and other “wasting sicknesses” ravaged their number. With no effective medicines, they began to die. In January and February the deaths sometimes reached two and three a day; 17 dying in February alone. At one point, there were only five people well enough to be on their feet, caring for the rest. Toward the end of March, when the worst was over, they had lost 47 of their number. Of the 18 wives who had come, 13 had died. Only three families remained unbroken. They were in real trouble, for the food they had brought on the Mayflower was virtually gone, and they were facing an unhospitable wilderness. (The True History and Real Meaning of Thanksgiving; Posted by Sword At-The-Read; from Peter J. Marshall © 2007; posted 11/21/07)
 
Socialism wasn’t working! Hello President Barack Hussein Obama.
 
In the harvest feasts of 1621 and 1622, “all had their hungry bellies filled,” but only briefly. The prevailing condition during those years was not the abundance the official story claims, it was famine and death. The first “Thanksgiving” was not so much a celebration as it was the last meal of condemned men.
 
But in subsequent years something changes. The harvest of 1623 was different. Suddenly, “instead of famine now God gave them plenty,” Bradford wrote, “and the face of things was changed, to the rejoicing of the hearts of many, for which they blessed God.” Thereafter, he wrote, “any general want or famine hath not been amongst them since to this day.” In fact, in 1624, so much food was produced that the colonists were able to begin exporting corn.
 
What happened?
 
After the poor harvest of 1622, writes Bradford, “they began to think how they might raise as much corn as they could, and obtain a better crop.” They began to question their form of economic organization.
 
This had required that “all profits & benefits that are got by trade, working, fishing, or any other means” were to be placed in the common stock of the colony, and that, “all such persons as are of this colony, are to have their meat, drink, apparel, and all provisions out of the common stock.” A person was to put into the common stock all he could, and take out only what he needed.
 
This “from each according to his ability, to each according to his need” was an early form of socialism, and it is why the Pilgrims were starving. Bradford writes that “young men that are most able and fit for labor and service” complained about being forced to “spend their time and strength to work for other men’s wives and children.” Also, “the strong, or man of parts, had no more in division of victuals and clothes, than he that was weak.” So the young and strong refused to work and the total amount of food produced was never adequate.
 
To rectify this situation, in 1623 Bradford abolished socialism. He gave each household a parcel of land and told them they could keep what they produced, or trade it away as they saw fit. In other words, he replaced socialism with a free market, and that was the end of famines. (The Great Thanksgiving Hoax; By Richard J. Maybury; Mises Institute; 11/20/1999)
 
God enabling perseverance and Free Market thinking brought prosperity to the Pilgrims thus it probably wasn’t until the fruits of 1624 was there any real Thanksgiving.
 
The lessons of Thanksgiving are extremely important to our heritage as Americans.
 
Americans came to the New World to worship the Christian freely and to rely on strength to survive endowed by the Creator. God was and should always be thanked for overcoming struggles individually and corporately as a people.
 
Early Socialist-like experiments failed to succeed across the board in Colonial America.
 
Free Market Capitalism engendered individual self-sufficiency which in turn led trade in the community and outside the colony. The lazy self-entitled died while the thrifty individuals tied to their property succeeded.
 
Community standards were dedicated to Christian Morality instilling concepts of good and evil government in the rule of law.
 
Once America became a Republic, individual Presidents annually world declare a day of Thanksgiving before God for the peace and posterity of the USA. Apparently Abraham Lincoln had a religious epiphany while gazing to the Battle of Gettysburg graves leading to him to declare the last Thursday in November to a day of Thanksgiving in 1863. Each President after Lincoln followed suit with Lincoln’s last Thursday in November declaration. The 1941 Congress permanently made Thanksgiving the fourth Thursday of November a Federal Holiday. To this day in 2014 Thanksgiving is celebrated. Unless Separation of Church-State Leftists get their unconstitutional way by keeping the Christian faith out of government by an Obamination social transformation, our Republic will continue to have Thanksgiving.
 
Save the Republic of the United States of America from transformist thinking by keeping America free by holding these truths as self-evident: “… that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed”. (Declaration of Independence, 1776)

The New Marxist Infiltration


Taking USA back from Hammer-Sickle-Swastika

John R. Houk

© April 1, 2013

 

There was a time in America that being a Communist or Marxist sympathizer was an expression of un-American treason. Senator Joseph McCarthy was initially looked upon as an American hero for exposing Soviet-Communism in the U.S. government. After McCarthy’s vigilance began to spill-over into the First Amendment protected Right to believe in Marxist ideology outside of the direct manipulation of the old Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR), then Liberal Democrats and Center-Left Republican began an agenda to smear the character and agenda of Senator Joe McCarthy. McCarthy was publically transformed from an American hero into an American witch hunter. Witch hunting of course is viewed as a profession of creating lies to convict people of crimes that really do not exist.

 

For example in the ‘real world’ there is no such thing as witches with supernatural powers to wiggle their noses and speak a few Latin words and create some evil ex nihilo. McCarthy’s agenda was painted as finding Communist spies ex nihilo from influential people that believed in the principles of Karl Marx or flirted with the idea Communist utopianism in their youth out of a dissatisfaction of a Free Market society favoring the opportunity of individuals utilizing hard work for prosperity while the less entrepreneurial and oft time poor people seemed stuck in lower income working class misery.

 

In defense of a Free Market society that experiences the Liberty guaranteed with a Bill of Rights; whether there is Marxist society or a Free Market society there will always be people stuck in low income working class situations. The reality is the low income people in a Free Market society usually have a better life than the Liberty-Less low income people of a Marxist-Socialist society. The innovative prosperity of the few more often provides a better income for the poor in a Free Market world than for the income of the poor in a Marxist-Socialist world.  Scarcity reigns for the poor of Marxist-Socialism and abundance reigns for the poor of Free Market Capitalism.

 

Painting McCarthy as a Communist witch hunter was the beginning of the slow acceptance of stealth Marxism in American society. Organizations like the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU – See Also HERE and HERE) used their Marxist sympathies to aid in the eradication of Christian morals in America which has paved the way to removing prayer from schools, making abortion-murder on demand as a birth control method normal, validating ungodly homosexuality as normal rather than as an abomination toward God, using the tax code to prevent Ministers of the Gospel from endorsing godly political candidates for Office and now the pervasive anti-Christian of entrenched Liberals has emboldened more attacks on Christianity in America.

 

Prayer at public sports events (as in Public Schools and Colleges) or City Council meetings is being attacked with the threat of litigation that Public Schools and small to medium sized cities cannot afford to litigate. In these cases Marxist ideals are infused into our Free Market society ironically because the financial clout of Leftist-minded organizations and individuals can out-fund the local Public Schools or the Local Governments. It is the use of the Free Market to destroy the Free Market Liberty society.

 

It is time to publicly rehabilitate the image of Joe McCarthy where he was correct and to criticize him where he was incorrect on a First Amendment basis. It was evil for the old Soviet Union to infiltrate our government to bring down the U.S. Constitutional government from within. It was wrong for McCarthy to brand people as a threat to the nation because of a mere belief in Marxism. As much as Marxism is against the Liberty principles of initiated by America’s Founding Fathers, it is a First Amendment Right to believe in Marxist principles.

 

And yet when dedicated Marxists utilize Liberty to terminate Liberty via deception to purposefully eradicate the Constitution, we who still believe in Liberty must begin to take a stand even if Marxists have convinced society it is politically incorrect to take public stands that contradict stealth Marxist principles.

 

For example preventing Christianity influencing government is our Constitutional Right. Marxists may take the words of Thomas Jefferson that he wrote to Danbury Baptists that the government has no Right to enfranchise or disenfranchise a Church in the Federal Government; those words are not in the Constitution. Not only that, but Jefferson was not one of the principle framers of the Constitution.

 

Another example is the use of a Left-minded Judiciary to redefine the Constitution as a Living parchment in which it can be interpreted according to what the Left find culturally relevant in the present. This kind of Judicial fiat creates Law unconstitutionally. The Constitution that frames the three branches of government that exist with checks and balances under the concept that not any government branch has absolute power limits the Judiciary to only interpreting Law and NOT Bench-Legislating Law.

 

The Constitution insures that a duly elected Congress and the sovereign States make the Law with the President signing off or vetoing legislation and with the duly elected Congress having the expanded privilege to override a Presidential veto. The sovereign State’s Right in this Constitutional process is the required percentage to ratify Constitutional Amendments that Amends a section of the Constitution or adds to the Constitution. In which the Judiciary has no power to terminate a State approved Amendment.

 

Marxist utopians such as our President Obama and the Dems intend to use the Living Constitution deception to terminate portions of the Constitution and current Amendments to mean something not Originally Intended (See Also HERE) as the Law.

 

And this is where the accusation that our President is a Manchurian Candidate comes into play:

 

The Manchurian Candidate (1959), by Richard Condon, is a political thriller novel about the son of a prominent US political family who is brainwashed into being an unwitting assassin for a Communist conspiracy.

 

The novel has been adapted twice into a feature film by the same title, in 1962 and again in 2004. (Wikipedia)

 

I am not such a Conspiracy Theorist that I believe President Obama is a brainwashed individual from a Communist nation. The international vision of Soviet-Communism collapsed at the dissolution of the USSR into separate sovereign nations shedding off the hegemony of a Russian dominated Communist government. The only other Communist Super Power that still exists is more interested in its National Interests that the global domination of Maoist-Marxist world. The People’s Republic of China (Red China) is interested in regional hegemony and confronting other powers that may conflict with those regional National Interests. For Red China that may include a wary eye on Russia as much as on the USA. It is only when Russia’s and China’s National Interest intersect in keeping the USA at bay do Russia and China appear as friends against the USA.

 

I am such a Conspiracy Theorist that President Obama is involved in some sort of nefarious Marxism to change American culture to seem closer to Marxist utopianism rather than our Founding Fathers’ concept of Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness based on a combination of Christian Morality and Greco-Roman political thought.

 

Whether or not Obama’s Marxist-Socialist utopianism is based on the individual precepts he developed from the Marxist influence of family and mentors OR from a network of stealth Marxist Global Elitists is something I cannot put my finger on. Whether Obama’s change agenda is individual or networked is irrelevant. That which is relevant is Obama has a Gramsci-like agenda to transform America away from its roots into a Communist utopia in the near future or to create a foundation for future Marxist-Elitist to build on.

 

That is what makes President Barack Hussein Obama a Manchuria Candidate.

The Gasoline Monopoly


OPEC-America Oil Addiction

 

John R. Houk

© January 28, 2013

 

Did you know your car runs on gasoline for a specific reason? That reason is a gasoline monopoly. Cars and trucks are required to be made to burn a petroleum based fuel. I am no scientist so the info I found out about alternative fuels is new to me. This is the info: Did you know that car engines can be made that burns a petroleum based gasoline, ethanol or methanol alternatively or simultaneously? AND according the information I read the car you currently drive can relatively easily rework your engine to burn ethanol and/or methanol?

 

Why are these questions important? Because if cars are manufactured with engines that operate on more than just petroleum gasoline, the economic power of Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) would sliced in which the Western World would no longer have an absolute dependence of foreign oil especially the kind of oil from nations that are taught to hate the USA, Jews and Christians.

 

The single largest entity impacting the world’s oil supplies is the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), a consortium of 13 countries: Algeria, Angola, Ecuador, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Libya, Nigeria, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Venezuela.

 

Together, these 13 nations are responsible for 40 percent of the world’s oil production and hold the majority of the world’s oil reserves, according to the Energy Information Administration (EIA). [source: EIA]. When OPEC wants to raise the price of crude oil, it simply reduces production. This causes gasoline prices to jump because of the short supply, but also because of the possibility of future reductions. When oil production dips, gas companies get nervous. The mere threat of oil reductions can raise gas prices.

 

In April 2001, OPEC decided to reduce its collective production by one million barrels per day. This was at the same time that American consumers saw gas prices rise, hitting an average high of $1.71 per gallon on May 14, 2001. (READ THE RESTHow Gas Prices Work)

 

The advocacy of ACT for America alerted me via email about this issue which you can read below.

Breaking the back of OPEC

A national security imperative

If you follow our email alerts you know that last year we actively supported a bill called The Open Fuel Standard Act. Simply put, this bill would break up the liquid fuel monopoly that now exists. This monopoly guarantees that the only fuel you can buy for your car or truck is gasoline (or, at most, gasoline containing a small percentage of ethanol).

If we are to ever really break the back of the OPEC price-fixing cartel, we must break the gasoline monopoly. The first step is ensuring that cars can actually run on other fuels such as methanol, which can be made from natural gas, coal, even waste such as grass clippings.

Did you know that, with just a few minor alterations to your car, it’s possible to run it on methanol—at a significant savings over the cost of gas?

We encourage you to check out the article below and the Open Fuel Standard website.

Breaking Monopolies is One of Government’s Most Important Responsibilities

http://www.openfuelstandard.org/2013/01/breaking-monopolies-is-one-of.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+OpenFuelStandard+%282+-+Open+Fuel+Standard%29

 

Anne Korin and Gal Luft make a very persuasive argument in their new book, Petropoly, that the most influential free market advocates have always been in favor of one particular use of government: To prevent or break monopolies so free markets and competition could occur.

Many people are in favor of fuel competition but think the Open Fuel Standard is an overreach of government. Korin and Luft’s arguments make it clear that nothing could be further from the truth.

Many people believe that the reason other fuels don’t compete with gasoline is because they can’t — they’re too expensive. But this is not so. Ethanol and methanol can both be sold today for less money per mile than gasoline. The only reason people don’t use them is because their cars are not warranted to burn them. The engines themselves could burn the fuel. But the cars are warranted to burn one fuel only, regardless of how easy and inexpensive it is to make them capable of burning all three. And that’s the only reason fuels are not competing today.

What we have is a virtual monopoly. And since transportation underpins our economy, this monopoly rules our most economically important commodity. What would Nobel Laureate (in Economics) Friedrich August Hayek think should be done about this? He was, as Korin and Luft put it, “One of the greatest economists and political philosophers of the 20th century and the world’s leading free market proponent…In 1945, Hayek published his triumphantly successful book The Road to Serfdom, a manifest in defense of markets and competition which made him the darling of conservative parties and leaders all over the world, including Margaret Thatcher.”

Hayek said that you can’t rigidly stick to rules with regard to free markets, and he named especially laissez-faire as one of those rules you should not be inflexible about. Hayek believed that the government should function as “a counterweight to monopolistic coercion” as Luft and Korin put it. That’s exactly what we have in the transportation sector. “Cars that block competing fuels,” they write, “are a barrier to the development of a free market in fuels.”

Because we don’t have any other attractive options for breaking OPEC’s monopolistic coercion of our economy, Hayek would probably have wholeheartedly supported the Open Fuel Standard Act.

Another important and influential free market advocate was also a Nobel Laureate in Economics — Milton Friedman. He wrote that “the first and most urgent necessity in the area of government policy is the elimination of those measures which directly support monopoly.”

What is something within our borders that directly supports the petroleum monopoly? The petroleum-only vehicle.

What could eliminate that monopoly? The Open Fuel Standard.

Many people are understandably angry at our government’s constant interference and meddling in the free market. But freeing markets from a monopoly’s dominance of an important commodity is one of the few good reasons our government should intervene. Let’s hope this understanding reaches enough people in time.

Let Everyone Prosper

It is obvious to a vast number of Americans that the divergent gap between the amount paid hourly workers for their labor is far disproportionate to that paid in profit margins and salaries and bonuses to CEOs, however, the answer is not found in higher tax rates, because no matter how high a tax is placed on companies it is always offset by higher consumer prices. If America is to remain a free-market capitalist system, at some point in the near future companies will necessarily have to create a better business model that partners labor in their efforts and presents a more balanced and equitable distribution of the net profits gained across each quarter; and, while I tend to view unions as organizations that price themselves out of competition in free markets, initially this was their mission as they attempted to close that gap.

 

Government can never force the closer of such a gap without completely destroying private businesses, because most businesses will simply shut down if they are not allowed to distribute their profits as they see fit, because it is their capital that started the business…their capital at risk…and since it is their private property, they do have the right to do with it exactly as they see fit; the worker actually risked nothing to start that business.

 

Obama would like to control all private business, and we have seen him too readily attempt to control certain aspects of our business world by picking winners and losers in the energy field as he subsidizes “green energy” technology through already failed companies, such as Solyndra, and works to utterly destroy the coal and oil industries. The only way that government could ever close the gap is by reducing America to a command economy, which sometimes seems to be Obama’s intent, and should this ever occur no one would have any real wealth, as we would all be reduced to the lowest common denominator in poverty, with only the elite ruling class garnering the bulk of the nation’s wealth.

 

Yes, I believe in a compassionate society that helps those who truly cannot do better, but we do not owe lazy people or people of low ambition a better living simply because they do not wish to expend the necessary energy to study harder in school, or try harder once they enter the work force, or because they simply have adopted an entitlement attitude and expect a great paying job to fall out of the sky and into their lap. Far too many in today’s America are now expecting something for nothing!

 

While the gap is vast, the beauty of a truly free market and capitalist society is that each and everyone of us can attain great wealth if we keep pushing through each failure until we achieve that success; usually the people who try, try again have become wealthy, but one also needs a modicum of intelligence and an idea for a business of one’s own combined with a decent level of ambition and the social grace and acumen to make the necessary business contacts. No one has ever said it was easy, but interjecting government to “level the playing field”…to make it easy for everyone…in the end only damages everyone in innumerable ways. Redistribution of the wealth is not a function of government no matter in what manner it is accomplished, and it should never be a final destination for any government that wishes to see a vibrant expanding economy, because history has shown time and time again that it has always failed wherever it was attempted with devastating effects on the society.

 

Hopefully, all America will get their heads together and start utilizing more pragmatic methods towards our nation’s real economic woes, but when Obama effortlessly spends nearly $9 trillion in four years with few results and a failed Stimulus that only distributed 6% back into the economy and Ben Bernanke is printing money at the Fed like there is no tomorrow, we have far more difficulties in this nation than the salary gap, especially when one considers the $100 trillion unfunded debt that has accrued throughout our history.

 

A larger centralized government, which is where Obama and the Progressives are taking us, will only serve to take more of the poor and middle class and even the wealthy’s earned income…their private property…and serve only to eventually further limit individual Freedom through over-regulation, just as we are witnessing through Obamacare; just look at the roaring 20s, when the government was small and regulations had been curbed back to only the barest of necessity and EVERYONE PROSPERED!

 

Even Pravda recently quoted Putin as saying that Obama was going down the path towards socialism.

What Romney can do about the Derivatives Markets that Obama cannot from the White House

Before we dive into this explanation of ideology that is the path President Obama is heading in to Force Fundamental Transformation. I do believe that the ‘Greed is Good Concept’ can be the Alternative to an Obama Fiscal Cliff. Let the Derivatives Markets Freely redirect that Investment money into where the Inflation is showing a potential spiking of price to stabilize and control it without interruptions in CPI data because Food and Energy stocks are NOT calculated in CPI data to being in with as a way to counter the Control Obama has right now over setting monetary policy.

 

This can be what breaks the Dam Obama has built with regulation because its Internationally a Way around Obama and the Globalists’ Grip over Congress and their ability to Lead on Fiscal direction, because if the International Derivatives Markets start to Redirect leveraged positions into These Alternative productions to expand the food and energy supply it will then force Congress to want to take advantage and compete for this Market Greed driving them because they will want to have as much of this Production here in the USA. And Mitt Romney can say he will be able to enable the Business sector to take advantage of this Trend with his economic and Tax code policies!!! We can expand the Food Basket with Infinity and the energy supply too, but it takes a Leader that is not Held back by a Globalist Ideology like Obama has been.

 

Here are ways that can expand the Food and Energy supply and do it in alternative ways that everyone can realize it is a sustainable path forward by transforming more Production, Processing and Distribution back to a more Locally driven small business sector, with substance and meaning, something President Obama cannot deliver because of his principle being controlled from the teleprompter he reads from by the Globalists he associates his ideology with regarding Central Government theology:

 

 www.foddersolutions.com  

 

www.verticalfarm.com 

 

This kind of Alternative production means would enable the Local communities to be more Involved in the production of food and energy industries and by creating the resources locally this would lower the Overall cost on these products that Now, from a Centralized Processing and distribution system, cannot pass the Inflation costs on producing and distributing because peoples’ incomes are not rising. If Investments were allowed to come into these areas of production from the derivatives markets and these businesses be allowed to be traded in an ETF basket the ability to bundle small businesses and invest in them as pools would be no different than how the Bundling of Mortgages was done, only this investment would be in areas that we need supply expansion in to curb the Food and energy inflation we see that will only get worse because traditional methods have reached a peak in production.

 

And here is a Great source of Bio Algae resource companies that the derivatives markets can redirect investments into, this is the fuel of the future because it’s By Product production of Pulp high in Proteins and Fiber Opens the door to endless product use. Think about its potential and watch the derivatives markets go wild here!!!!!

 

http://peswiki.com/index.php/Directory:Biodiesel_from_Algae_Oil 

 

I wanted to further explain the Way a President Romney can manage the Inflation that’s headed our way in the USA and world regardless of what we do as a People of Earth. The rise in demand will cripple the Centralized processing and distribution system the International economy runs on today because it cannot pass on the inflation costs coming now from a system that’s unable to find enough cheaper labor and automation to lower handling costs so these costs are now inflating with the rise in world labors rise in quality of life. So what we need is a More Locally Produced, Processed and Distributed supply system to go with the Current system. And this overall approach Mitt Romney can enable the Small Business sector to be competitive and stabilize the inflation with an overall expansion in supply economically. Obama and his Minions and Globalist Leadership have Gave Up on We the People and Our ability to self regulate our way forward sustainably and they are not even bring us into their debate able this and that’s the real Crime against humanity here .    

 

What President Obama is doing with Zero Interest Monetary Policy is collapsing the Dollar slowly. See here:

 

http://www.batr.org/negotium/101712.html

 

By First making it ridiculously impossible to access any credit and then this credit subsidy missing from the short term lending markets is Bleeding out the Private Capital Sector Cash people have saved. And at the same time he tries to use this strife in a very methodical manner instilling in the minds of the middle class that it’s not his Policies it’s those pesky rich people that are not trickling down their piles of cash that they have raped and pillaged from the consumers, a great crime against the free markets and humanity in my Opinion, but when driven by a ideology called UN Agenda 21. This is what is driving the Obama doctrine and Women need to Know this Fact!!

And this:  

 

http://explosivereports.com/ 

 

And it is not the USA that is the Problem. So transforming the USA into statism is unjustified and Romney needs to make this Claim known to Women. See this fertility chart it shows that sustainability is not just the USA, but also all Developed Nations who have been using the capital system as their economic model:

The Globalist Elites are Guiding Obama on his policies on the teleprompter, see here:

 

http://www.creators.com/opinion/terence-jeffrey/the-global-redistributionist-at-obama-s-left-hand.html 

 

This is why he has No Substance and is Unable to explain Specifics in what his Plans are in the Way Forward in his Next 4 years as President, because he is doing what is considered Necessary becomes the reasoning amongst the Elite. And Obama is a Student of these Internationalists. He has shown us this much of his Records of historic principles and his Policies adopt the UN Charter of Agenda 21, who have been trained to think they know what’s best ushering in the nanny state or what is termed as Statism. Aside from the fact that Obama cannot work to bring Congress together, This shows Obama having No substance to back up his next 4 years for dealing with the Affairs of solvency and stability of the US Dollar and Government budget from a Left leaning financial publication. And this needs to be exploited to debate the fact that even Obama’s supporting financial class is questioning the Obama doctrine of “No Plan No Problem”:

And here:

The Ideologues Collapsing of the free markets to Fundamentally Transform the Free market to a statist economy needs the dollar to collapse with it and the only thing that can stop it is a Redirection of the Derivatives Markets leveraged assets to rebalance their Leveraged Positions into more Supply Expansion like Food and Energy, Creating a conversion of debt into Asset positions as the rebalancing of this leveraged market.  This has to be negotiated before Next year’s New Derivatives rules kick into gear or solving the Fiscal Cliff and saving the dollar as world’s trade currency will be lost, see this Bloomberg article:

And Mitt Romney needs to address this NOW as a Campaign Platform and take the lead on the way forward away from the lack of Substance that the President is trying to sell the American people as his Agenda of ‘Let me finish what we have begun’ dazes the minds of the people. And Mitt Romney needs to ask the Question to Obama, “Mr. President Just what is it that you have started that you want to finish regarding dealing with the debt because everything you are proposing just does not calculate out?”

 

What Mitt Romney can do is state this Fiscal Policy agenda that can rebalance the Derivative markets and give a Stalled US Congress a Direction forward to fix the Fiscal Cliff with a Growth policy that tax revenues can be calculated from!!!! Romney will have to make this clear as an Alternative to Obama’s unsustainable Tax the Rich policy that Just simply falls short on dealing with this debt that he has Doubled and shows his stubborn Failure to Comprehend the enormity of the US Fiscal Cliff and that Expansion in the supply is the only way to generate the volumes of tax revenues needed to balance the debt if the Dollar and capitalism is to Survive. And this is the question needed to be posed to Obama: Do You Want Capitalism and the dollar to survive? Because we have seen your Administration’s Disdain for the Capital system over the years, see this report:

If Romney will make this case of Obama Contempt for the Dollars in Women’s pockets he can swing the Women Vote his way because Women and Their Money is paramount in every aspect of their Lives in running their family’s operations, and they know the value of it and pay attention to its purchasing power more than anyone!!!

 

The Bloomberg Article is found here:

This tells us that we need to Move Now on establishing a Plan to deal with the Derivatives markets, stabilize the EURO Zone and this Give us a Plan for Congress to deal with the Fiscal Cliff. And I think the Only place that can give us the Expansion needed to stabilize the Fixed Interest rate markets that Bonds are secured with in free market sense is with the steady expanding supply of food and energy stocks, but Romney will have to Introduce a Alternative Supply Method to be seen as a sustainable resource base or the Private sector investment world will not buy into the plan that supply expansion can be generated without relying too heavily on Earth’s raw material base. This is where the debate needs to go Mr. Romney so everyone can see why Obama has Not delivered a Substance of economic growth. He and the elite forces that support him don’t want that or they would have!!

 

If we can redirect Derivatives investments into food and energy the future can fix this shortage we face:

Here is an Audio of an Obama Adviser that explains the Health care Bill that even COBRA rejects. And these CZARS are not justified in their wanting to set policy in this way because the developed nations are sustainable and their views is one that’s totally not in telling the world that it’s the Level of education that explains to a Free Thinking Society from their Internal understanding of Their Finite earth that they automatically sustain themselves freely with their own Intellectual behavior as the fertility chart reveals above in the CIA link and this is the conversation we need to be having around the world with the Policy of Higher education and Mitt Romney can do this too.

Good Luck Mitt Romney and all who are a part of the campaign effort. Take care.

Outsourcing to Communists!

Chevrolet – i.e. General Motors – has outsourced its production to Communist China. Chevrolet considers this outsourcing a key to rebounding to profitability. Keep in mind Obama gave bail-out money to the Chevy guys. Chevy answers the bail-out by investing in a foreign nation that is antithetical to America’s Free Market paradigm.

 

Before you go laying on the blame for outsourcing manufacturing work on corporate outsourcing, you should give a large share of blame to American Unions for demanding to large a share of the corporate profits sending companies like Chevrolet to send American jobs to foreign nations. It is just plain galling to discover that one of those foreign nations – China – stands for everything that would end our American Republic of Liberty and the Constitutional Bill of Rights.

Do Obama and the Environmentalists Really want Society to have Abundance?


OWS vs. Tea Party Movement

Occupy Wall Street (OWS) promoters are becoming confident with their movement to transform America away from a Capitalistic Market Economy to a spread the wealth Marxist Economy they are beginning to admit so publically.

 

Tony Newbill touches on OWS and follows his thoughts with a link to a GlenBeck.com article exposing the intentions of OWS.

Do Obama and the Environmentalists Really want Society to have Abundance?

Do Obama and the Environmentalists Really want Society to have Abundance in Fuel or anything else that provides for an economic capital system to Prosper and the people to prosper as well?

 

In any given day the amount of Oil in excess in world reserves is 4 Million barrels , and the world is consuming 86 million barrels a day , considering this is a Global market and the Price of fuel is reflective of the Global demand, then with 1/3rd the oil coming out of the middle east and all the volatility in that region we can see how interruption in that area’s distribution would cause a spike in the price that we in the USA could not manage to keep the free market stable enough that collapse in the market would result .

 

We need an All hands on deck approach, and I think the Algae approach with the extra resource that it produces in the Pulp for food additive in just Livestock feeds and fertilizers let alone the Fiber content this material would bring to the Fiber Industry that could be used for some many things is why the idea of this secondary material being created for No Additional Monetary Investment is a Golden Opportunity for expansion of the Overall supply-side markets.

 

The Suppression of this resource development is coming from two very opposite groups, one being the Oil Industry, and the second is from the Environmentalist side. And the resistance from the environmentalist’s side is a funny one because you world think they would be all for a Green Energy right?? The problem with this is it Empowers a Society to be more self-reliant, and more able to create abundance. These 2 factors are NOT what Environmentalists who have become Marxist Ideologues want to see as an economic Policy for society as a whole, because this in their Point of view is Destroying Earth and they would rather not have any self-reliant individual Prosperity and this is why we have a NO Growth economic recovery underway. And why the Capitalist System is slowly collapsing as the Government funds itself with Federal Reserve Bond buying programs trying to wait this out slowly sucking the cash reserves away from the private sector so that when the economy finally collapses due to No capital expansion from true supply-side expansion growth and tax revenues increasing from that. Then when the S_H_T_F they can say Capitalism failed and we are going to move to a New system. This all in the name of sustainability, but really it is all about Controlling how much people consume.

 

This is the ultimate goal of the Population control experts that make up the Global Elites Think Tanks. This is why we have No true capital growth recovery in our economy system of Capitalism.

 

Here is a story on how the OWS movement is being used to try and bring down Capitalism. OWS is a cover for the Environmentalists who control Obama and all his CZARs, The Czars are ideologues with Obama too, they are creating an environment with this envy of rich wealth Capitalists as the oppressors of society and the destroyers of earth. Along with Regulations, the Obama Administration is setting the stage for Fear to Invade the Minds of Investors who without these powers of Influence effecting their willingness to take risk investments, see these elements and actions as more and More private investors leave the markets. And this makes the Federal Reserve have to buy more and more Bonds to keep the Government funded. This sets the stage for a systematic Economic breakdown, slow and steady, like guiding the Economic ship right towards Land and beaching the Ship. Hopefully the beaching is easy enough that people don’t become unsettled to the point of civil unrest.

This is the Globalists plan to fundamentally transform the USA:

Occupy leaders admit they want to abolish capitalism

GBTV VIDEO

 

There was some incredible audio released over the weekend of a meeting of several union and Occupy Wall Street leaders, including Stephen Lerner, where they pretty much admit that they are looking to bring an end to capitalism because it just can’t co-exist with democracy! Sure, it’s worked ever since America was founded and led to the rise of The United States as a superpower and beacon of hope and freedom for the rest of the world – but that’s not what Occupy Wall Street wants. They and their leaders want us to be just the same as everyone else, and this video reveals that it means an end to capitalism in order to bring about their version of true democracy…aka socialism!

 

Watch the video below, courtesy of Breitbart.com:

 

Breitbart TV VIDEO

 

In the video, Lerner says:

 

How do we give workers the confidence? … How do we create a mood in the nation where we’re occupying our workplaces, where we’re shutting down our workplaces? … Where workers are sitting in, where workers are shutting down their places of work, and when the police come, when the injunctions come, we’re all there with them, so we can really deal with part of the reason that the economy’s so screwed up … which is a few people have got all the power. Think stew, think hope, death to the Stockholm Syndrome!

 

“This is what they are now saying out loud,” Glenn said.

 

“I want you to listen to its logical conclusion.  This is exactly what we’ve been saying but being hammered for.  Anybody ‑‑ you could play games and say, ‘Oh, well, that’s not really going to…; but if you use logic and play this out to its logical conclusion, it is the end of capitalism and that’s exactly what he’s saying,” Glenn warned.

 

“Please, America, take these people at their word,” Glenn said.

 

Glenn said that they are starting to develop their own value system, one that replaces capitalism with socialism, and they are trying to impose it on the rest of the country.

 

Breitbart.com adds, “This is where the unions and the Occupy movement and the academy all come together under one big anti-capitalist umbrella. Lerner, representing labor, says that the job of labor is to shut down business; Occupy says that its job is to smash the machines of capitalism; academia provides them the forum to recruit.”

 

In March of last year, Glenn and The Blaze reported on Lerner’s call for people to take action against big banks like JP Morgan Chase. At the time, Glenn said:

 

“You can call it a conspiracy theory, but the language that he uses is already being used by labor leaders and those who are whipping people up into a frenzy in Wisconsin and wait until you see how they are going to use the state and county and local labor unions to do exactly what they did to the housing market.  It’s the same tactic, gang.  The same tactic.  And it ends with the destruction of the economic system of the United States of America.  They are bringing it on through chaos and bringing down of Wall Street and the stock market.”

 

Since then, unions have been at the forefront of the Occupy Wall Street movement and have leveraged disaffected youth in order to achieve their goals of economic chaos, collapsing capitalism, and spreading socialism. Should we be more than a little concerned about Lerner’s latest comments? After all, this time last year he basically laying out the ideas that fueled the then non-existent Occupy movement. What could be coming next?
