The Greatest Con in History

Do you yearn to be free?  Do you think government is needed?

Learn the answers to these questions in the video below:

The quality of discourse in the US is at an all time low.  In fact, it’s headed towards civil war if it continues to escalate.

Leftist ideologues are egged on by the mass media and by funding from George Soros.  They have become extreme and intolerant.

They are no longer wiling to engage in rational debate, but instead hurl insults of “nazi” or “racist.”  And when a black man has the “wrong opinions”, they just go ballistic.

The word for this condition of insanity is sanctimonia, and is a condition where you don’t listen to others,  You are just triggered by words of people and you go into a state of total insanity.  Read up on this here.

One black woman and former member of Congress, Cynthia McKinney, thinks for herself and realizes that all of this is insanity.  She has went from being a leftist to being an anarchist, because she came to realize that government is not the solution, it is the problem.

Watch what Cynthia has to say below.

We have a unique opportunity to free ourselves from government and corporate enslavement once and for all.

Crypto currencies, decentralization, and anarchy lead the way.

We also have a free course, which you can find on this blog, called “Status Correction” that takes you by the hand and shows you how to free yourself from tyranny of all kinds.  AND IT’S FREE!

We have the chance, right now, to make this world what WE WANT IT TO BE, not what some old power elite that has been in power for thousands of years wants.

We must reject both the king and the priest, or government and religion, and take responsibility for ourselves and make this world what we want it to be for once.  A place to raise our children in peace, freedom and prosperity.

The elite have divided and ruled us for far too long.  They have their fake wars, create religious and racial strife among people, and other horrible things, because they know if the people ever unite, they are done.

I mean, give me a break.  The Royals on both the German and the British sides of WWII were cousins of all things!  But they sacrificed millions of their subject’s lives to preserve their prestige and power.

And they and their bankster buddies, who funded BOTH SIDES in this and every other war made billions.

The elites were laughing and enjoying themselves while the common person was expected to “sacrifice” themselves over a fake division.  It’s about time people woke up to these elite games and just said no, and embraced each other like brothers and sisters.

So forget about sanctimonia, and start thinking for a change instead of just blindly following the Pied Piper over the cliff.

And take advantage of our free STATUS CORRECTION COURSE today!

 

 

 

‘Haven’t we have already done enough damage?’ Ron Paul warns against Iraq invasion

From RT:

Former congressman Ron Paul is refusing to curb his condemnation of the current White House’s foreign policy, blasting United States President Barack Obama further in a new op-ed concerning possible US intervention in Iraq.

An editorial published on Paul’s website on Sunday reiterates previously remarks made by the longtime lawmaker in recent days in which he’s spoken out against American interventionism, particularly with regards to rumors that the US military will soon take action in war-torn Iraq.

“The same foreign policy ‘experts’ who lied us into the Iraq [W]ar are now telling us we must re-invade Iraq to deal with the disaster caused by their invasion!” the three-time presidential hopeful exclaimed in an op-ed published on the Ron Paul Institute official site. “They cannot admit they were wrong about the invasion being a ‘cakewalk’ that would pay for itself, so they want to blame last week’s events on the 2011 US withdrawal from Iraq. But the trouble started with the 2003 invasion itself, not the 2011 troop withdrawal. Anyone who understands cause and effect should understand this,” he wrote.

“A big US government weapons transfer to Iraq will no doubt be favored by the US military-industrial complex, which stands to profit further from the Iraq meltdown,” he added. “This move will also be favored by those in Washington who realize how politically unpopular a third US invasion of Iraq would be at home, but who want to ‘do something’ in the face of the crisis. Shipping weapons may be an action short of war, but it usually leads to war. And as we have already seen in Iraq and Syria, very often these weapons fall into the hands of the Al-Qaeda we are supposed to be fighting!”

“Because of the government’s foolish policy of foreign interventionism, the US is faced with two equally stupid choices: either pour in resources to prop up an Iraqi government that is a close ally with Iran, or throw our support in with Al-Qaida in Iraq (as we have done in Syria). I say we must follow a third choice: ally with the American people and spend not one more dollar or one more life attempting to re-make the Middle East.”

“Haven’t we have already done enough damage?” Paul asked.

Sunday’s remarks come only days after Paul posted a video statement on another website tied to his name in which he blamed the 2003 US invasion of Iraq on creating the chaotic scene that has since crumbled in recent days due to escalating turmoil.

“There is an alternative to this,” he said in that statement.“We don’t have to continue to do the dumb things that have been done for so long. It’s time that we just rised up [sic], used good policy and came to our sense. So in that sense, there is always a chance that things will get much better. But I think the American people ought to realize how bad things are. How much worse they are, tragically, before we even went into Iraq.”

In the days since both statements, the White House has acknowledged that roughly 300 US troops will be sent to Iraq to guard the US embassy in Baghdad and other American interests.

When Resistance Becomes a Way of Life

We must resist tyranny for our own and our children’s future.

There is some ambiguity with the use of the terms “libertarianism” and “libertarian” in writings about anarchism. Since the 1890s from France, the term “libertarianism” has often been used as a synonym for anarchism and was used almost exclusively in this sense until the 1950s in the United States; its use as a synonym is still common outside the United States.Accordingly, “libertarian socialism” is sometimes used as a synonym for socialist anarchism, to distinguish it from “individualist libertarianism” (individualist anarchism). On the other hand, some use “libertarianism” to refer to individualistic free-market philosophy only, referring to free-market anarchism as “libertarian anarchis

Anarchy (from the ancient Greek ???????, from ??, “not” +? ????? “ruler”, “absence of a leader”, without rulers), has more than one definition. In the United States, the term “anarchy” typically is used to refer to a society without a publicly enforced government or violently enforced political authority. When used in this sense, anarchy may or may not be intended to imply political disorder or lawlessness within a society. However, this usage is not the traditional sense of the word.
Outside of the US, and by most individuals that self-identify as anarchists, it implies a system of governance, mostly theoretical at a nation state level although there are a few successful historical examples, that goes to lengths to avoid the use of coercion, violence, force and authority, while still producing a productive and desirable society.
Anarchism is generally defined as the political philosophy which holds the state to be immoral,[7][8] or alternatively as opposing authority in the conduct of human relations.
Proponents of anarchism (known as “anarchists”) advocate stateless societies based on non-hierarchical voluntary associations.
There are many types and traditions of anarchism, not all of which are mutually exclusive. Anarchist schools of thought can differ fundamentally, supporting anything from extreme individualism to complete collectivism. Strains of anarchism have been divided into the categories of social and individualist anarchism or similar dual classifications. Anarchism is often considered to be a radical left-wing ideology, and much of anarchist economics and anarchist legal philosophy reflect anti-statist interpretations of communism, collectivism, syndicalism or participatory economics. However, anarchism has always included an individualist strain supporting a market economy and private property, or morally unrestrained egoism. Some individualist anarchists are also socialists or communists while some anarcho-communists are also individualists or egoists.
Anarchism as a social movement has regularly endured fluctuations in popularity. The central tendency of anarchism as a mass social movement has been represented by anarcho-communism and anarcho-syndicalism, with individualist anarchism being primarily a literary phenomenon which nevertheless did have an impact on the bigger currents and individualists also participated in large anarchist organizations. Most anarchists oppose all forms of aggression, supporting self-defense or non-violence (anarcho-pacifism), while others have supported the use of militant measures, including revolution and propaganda of the deed, on the path to an anarchist society.

Time to Abolish Left vs. Right

By Carl Gibson, Reader Supported News

14 May 13

eeping our nation divided is an agenda supported by both Fox News and MSNBC. The media and the politicians both profit from Americans believing they should hate their fellow Americans. And oddly enough, the one thing that unites the traditional “right” and “left” in this country is our hatred for those same media organizations and politicians that make money by regularly lying to us. The best way to beat them is to find the things that bring us together in one common purpose and unite around that.

An article in the Atlantic last week talked about how the dominant liberal narrative is broken. The argument that government is inherently good and is necessary to provide things like Social Security, Medicare and national parks has some truth to it, and worked well for both parties in the mid-twentieth century. Democrats and Republicans from FDR to Eisenhower won landslide elections using the good-government narrative. But now that our government is captive to corporations and their lobbyists like the US Chamber of Commerce, Americans of all ideological leanings are united in the belief that our current government, as it stands, is completely out of touch and needs radical change from outside the political system to do it.

In this video Mark Meckler, a co-founder of Tea Party Patriots, talks about how he had a surprisingly pleasant conversation with several of the co-founders of MoveOn.org about crony capitalism. It was an incredibly populist speech about how they found themselves in complete agreement that big moneyed special interests have taken government hostage and have wasted billions of tax dollars on bailing out banks (like the Federal Reserve’s $16 trillion in bailouts to both US and foreign banks that went entirely under the media’s radar). He also talked about how it’s more profitable for the crony capitalist DC bubble and the media they control to keep us divided than it is for us to play into those forced divisions.

Another Tea Party founder lamented about how the raw populist energy that originally inspired the Tea Party back in early 2008 against the Bush administration’s bailouts of the biggest banks has been overtaken by Republican ideologues like Sarah Palin and Newt Gingrich. Karl Denninger, a financial blogger who runs MarketTicker.com, said the Tea Party’s original message was against the big banks. After Obama’s inauguration, there was anger over appointees like Tim Geithner and Larry Summers, who were the same bought-and-paid-for financiers who deregulated the banks during Clinton’s second term and brought about the beginning of the financial collapse. Denninger supported the Occupy Wall Street movement early on, saying it was picking up where the Tea Party left off before it was hijacked by the Republican Party.

Democrats and Republicans are using issues like gun control, Benghazi and gay marriage to continue feeding the illusion that there’s a difference between the two and to continue the flow of money to their corporate masters. Whenever a politician says “gun control,” gun sales go through the roof. When the ruckus over Chick-Fil-A’s disapproval of marriage equality became mainstream conversation, social conservatives formed lines that went around the entire block to make their political statement about marriage equality. After their much ado about nothing Benghazi hearings, GOP members of Congress are fundraising off of their witch hunt. In either instance, whenever you follow the money trail, gun manufacturers and allegedly gay-hating fast food restaurants made record sales and politicians raised more money. Money is the entire point.

When it comes to Republican and Democratic Party officials’ deference to corporate money, they’re both nearly identical. The GOP-controlled House is pressing Obama hard to approve the Keystone XL pipeline, which would endanger an entire region’s drinking water supply and create anegligible amount of temporary jobs. Harry Reid’s Senate voted overwhelmingly for a resolution supporting the pipeline in their budget. The Monsanto Protection Act, which was written by GOP Senator Roy Blunt of Missouri and Monsanto officials, quietly became law with the signature of a Democrat president after the approval of a Democrat-led Senate.

Both parties are captive to the for-profit war industry – the military-industrial complex thatEisenhower warned us about – and are united in their support for military intervention whenever and wherever possible. Our last Republican president waged wars in two countries without being attacked by either one. Our current Democratic president has extended one of those wars byanother ten years and used drones to take military action in several other countries. Even Rand Paul, who made a name for himself filibustering Obama’s drone czar to lead the CIA, has made statements supporting drones to be used on Americans. Even though traditional Republicans are united against wasteful government spending, and traditional Democrats are united against austerity policies, both parties can agree that there’s entirely too much wasteful spending in Washington when it comes to an imperial military force with a bloated budget currently occupying over 130 nations with 900 bases around the world, and the multibillion-dollar security and surveillance state used to monitor peaceful protesters instead of terrorists. We can certainly find agreement that it would be much more productive to stop spending money on the dysfunctional F-35 jet, which even John McCain has criticized, than make cuts to early childhood education programs like Head Start.

Americans should be smarter than to allow ourselves to get thrown into the counter-productive left vs. right fight hyped by the corporate-owned media and our corporate-owned politicians. If we’re going to fight a binary struggle, it should be populist vs. corporatist. That’s the only real division in this country right now. Are you on the people’s side, or on big money’s side?
