Time goes by so slowly

Actually, most of the time it doesn’t go by slowly at all.

Last week I put in about 55 hours at my day job, after having shot a wedding the previous weekend. During the middle of the week my second nephew was born, and though I had more sleep than the rest of the family, there were a couple of nights where I only got a couple of hours. Thursday I went to a Tea Party rally where the vice president for research at the FED in Cleveland gave a speech, and I took notes (an article to follow!) and Saturday was filled with errands.

Yesterday however I did get some rest. After my wife and I woke up and had breakfast, she went to work and I took an hour to sit outside and drink my coffee and just enjoy the cool early autumn air. I reflected on life, the past week, and our plans for the future.

If the world doesn’t blow itself up by the end of the year, and this country doesn’t declare martial law and become a complete police state, I would like to have kids of my own. I now have two nephews, one from my sister and one now from my sister in law. Both boys are healthy and strong of mind. One is only 5 days old, and the other is 2 1/2 years old.

I get into battles on this blog, and I express my viewpoints so that there might be a future for them. It’s what any good uncle or citizen would do. I’m more afraid of them growing up into a life of servitude than the iron fist of the state coming after me.

If we (as a nation or as the world) can get through the next few months, and if we can begin getting back on track, I would like children of my own. Life is going well for my wife and I right now, but there will never be a perfect time to have kids. There will always be troubles in the world. My grandparents grew up during the second world war and witnessed bombs fall on their neighbors houses while Canterbury burned in the distance. My grandparents and their generation went through a lot growing up, and yet they turned out to be one of the strongest generations out there.

Time very rarely goes by slowly, but every once in a while you get to enjoy a few slow moments. Life speeds up as you go along so it’s important to enjoy it while it lasts!

Stand by for action!

Anything could happen in the next half hour!

When I was a child watching Gerry Anderson’s TV shows, I loved to see all the action, and how the heroes dealt with tough situations. Very rarely was force used, unless in self defence. Shows filmed in the 1960’s were optimistic and looked toward the future. Almost all of Gerry Anderson’s TV shows were based in the future.

Today though, our future is beginning to look rather bleak:

Tensions rise around the world:

Chinese protesters chant “down with US imperialists” attack car of US ambassador in Beijing

Nationwide strike begins in India 

Troops prepare for war:

Alaska F-22s deployed to pacific even as tensions escalate between China and Japan

Obama to meet with Netanyahu as naval ships heading for straight of Hormuz

Senior Chinese general orders military to prepare for war with Japan

Israel stages largest snap exercise in years

Cyber attacks begin:

(along with sanctions are a prelude to war)

US caught creating cyberwar viruses

China launches cyberwar against Japan as hackers take down 19 Japanese websites

False Flag Alerts:

Alert: False flag United Nations terror attack planned for New York city on September 23rd 2012

CIA sponsored taliban and al-qaeda resurface in the theater of false flags

Former state department veteran drops bombshell WWIII starts Sept 25th 2012

Expulsion of foreign organizations:

Russia demands US end pro-democracy work

All this while the dollar is collapsing:

Dollar index headed for rapid collapse over next 3 to 4 weeks

And economies slump:

World stocks fall weak Japan China indicators

What we really need in the world right now is an international rescue! Thunderbird’s was by far my favorite show when I was growing up. I loved seeing all the gadgets and machines used by the Tracy brothers. Show after show they pulled off daring feats to save innocent people.

The real international rescue will be the bloggers and those in power who are brave enough to stand up to corruption and seek peace instead of hostility. Perhaps if we can wake enough people up, and let the war mongers know that we’re watching them, they will call off these senseless attacks.

We will not have the resources to save ourselves if this current debt spiral continues to happen, and we allow ourselves to go to war. The dollar is failing, and our ships are sitting ducks in the Persian Gulf. We are currently in a nose dive and we need everyone who is awake to help pull up this falling machine of politics and return each nation state back toward free markets and liberty.

One by one, brick by brick, vote by vote, coin by coin, we will turn this nightmare scenario around. Perhaps December 2012 doesn’t need to be the end of the world, perhaps it can be the start of a whole new evolution in human thinking.

We now have rovers on mars and satellites at the end of our solar system. With movies such as Avatar, and TV shows such as Star Trek, why are we not looking toward the stars in search of new life? And why are we not respecting our life here at home?

In closing, it is up to each and every one of us as individuals to protect ourselves, our homes, our way of life. We need not murder each other in order to do that. Perhaps it is far better to find creative solutions to our problems, and have the bravery to point out the failures of citizens and politicians alike from both the left and the right, and from all nation states. The time has come for a great awakening. If we do not act now, anything could happen in the next half hour.

The beating drums of war

The drums of war are beating to a fever pitch and all hell is about to break loose. I have been reporting my findings for months now, and it seems the time is about to come. Unless enough people wake up and say “no! ” War is a racket, but it seems that we are intent on throwing more young men onto the bayonets of others, so that a select few can benefit.

Why would we allow our current leaders to throw us into such a deadly fight? From the left you have Hillary Clinton who admits that the US created Al-Qaeda, and from the right you have Mitt Romney who talks of letting off dirty bombs in Chicago.

We have a large naval exercise going on in the gulf right now while our president meets with the Israeli prime minister, while his army performs a snap military exercise in the Golan heights.

And we now have a senior Chinese general ordering its military to prepare for war with Japan.

This all the while our economy and currency is collapsing.

Our economy is losing more and more freedom, while we have more and more military buildup at home. The department of homeland security continues to order more and more rounds of ammunition.

If Israel attacks Iran, it will retaliate and shut down the Straight of Hormuz, which would make the price of oil skyrocket, and make gasoline in the US go up to around $10 a gallon on average. Our stock market will crash, and there will be civil unrest at home.

A worse case scenario (barring all out nuclear war) would be if the Chinese attack the Japanese, and decide to take out all our military bases in and around Asia, since we would need to back up the Japanese militarily.

If Iran is provoked into war, there is a high probability of them being able to take out all of our bases in the middle east. Especially with their Russian missile batteries.

Russia could attack multiple European bases if it felt threatened, and by this point, we would have no more show of force in the world. Almost all of our overseas bases would be wiped out, and since our military is so stretched out across the globe, it would take years for us to recover.

All this would come after a complete economic collapse which would include all the major countries dumping the US dollar.

Between the currency collapse and the decimation of our military, this country would be left dead in the water.

The scary part is, that there are rumors today of a dollar dumping, and the military exercises currently going on could well be a prelude to all out attacks.

All this coupled with cyber attacks and mis-information from the media can lead up to only one thing; the beating drums of war will get what they want, and all out carnage will ensue.

I pray that we do not allow this to happen. Tell your friends, tell your neighbors, do your own research. Lets see if we can’t use the power of the internet to stop this madness in its tracks!

The Drum
“Mr. Scott”
[John Scott][1]
The Cambridge Intelligencer (August 3, 1793)[2]

I hate that drum’s discordant sound,
Parading round, and round, and round:
To thoughtless youth it pleasure yields,
And lures from cities and from fields,
To sell their liberty for charms
Of tawdry lace and glitt’ring arms;
And when Ambition’s voice commands,
To fight and fall in foreign lands.

I hate that drum’s discordant sound,
Parading round, and round, and round:
To me it talks of ravaged plains,
And burning towns and ruin’d swains,
And mangled limbs, and dying groans,
And widow’s tears, and orphans moans,
And all that Misery’s hand bestows,
To fill a catalogue of woes.

World War III looms

It appears that World War III is fast approaching.

I’ve already written about how a WWIII scenario might play out.

There are many reasons why WWIII may be imminent; including tensions throughout the world, and multiple countries constant saber rattling.

We now have tensions between Japan and China over an island dispute. There is now a real threat of conflict between these two nations. Our own defense secretary has said that a threat of war now exists.

There are reports of food shortages and oil shortages throughout the globe.

Our countries freedoms have been stripped away through bills such as the patriot act and NDAA, and the country is split and divided.

We are seeing massive blowback in the middle east from our failed foreign policies. Which is little wonder when so many innocent people are being killed on a daily basis.

There are uprisings all over the middle east, and Syria is currently in turmoil.

The dollar is on the decline, and our government on both sides of the isle show no signs of slowing down the rate of debt.

There is a huge buildup of forces in the gulf, tensions continue to grow, and Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netenyahu is hell bent on starting a war with Iran.

When you look at all the facts, from the imminent collapse of the dollar, the wars in the middle east and the internal rift at home, there are only two options left to move forward from. We can either completely withdraw our forces from the middle east and fix our policies at home, or we can commit to a full scale war in the middle east, which could lead to a global war; a war which even if nuclear missiles are not used, we might not win.

The Russians have  a new missile that would wreak havoc on our ships and decimate our naval strength if used against us in the middle east. Iran owns thousands of these missiles, and is prepared to use them in retaliation against us if we attack them.

But why would we want to attack this peaceful country? Iran has not initiated a war in over 200 years. Why do we see the need to bomb them? Especially when there are no proven nuclear weapons there.

Isn’t Israel more of a threat to peace in the middle east? After all, they are the only Middle-Eastern country which possess nuclear weapons, and they routinely threaten their neighbors.

Should we go along with Benjamin Netanyahu’s demands and attack Iran? This same man who has for years threatened that Iran was only years/months away from a bomb, without ever having proof. And was quoted in 2002 as saying; “Once we squeeze all we can out of the United States, it can dry up and blow away.”

Why do we listen to Israel in the first place? All of these Muslim Brotherhood uprisings are caused from our interference in foreign countries affairs.

The claim that the Muslims hate Christians is completely unfounded. If it were true, then why doesn’t Al-Qaeda attack other christian nations? Why have they never attacked a country in South America; which is almost all Catholic?

Why does Israel always get positive coverage in the media, while we are led to believe all Muslims are evil? Is it because as Ariel Sharon once said “we, the Jewish people control America, and the Americans know it”?

I believe that the extremist Zionists are far more of a threat to this world than the Muslim extremists. From what I have researched and found out, the Muslims only want to be left alone in peace, whereas the Zionists appear to crave world domination.

This country is entering a debt spiral and the best candidate to go up against our ‘Muslim Marxist’ president is an Israeli sponsored vulture capitalist with an abysmal record on governing and job creation, and doesn’t appear to be much different. The two parties act like gangs, and are more interested in bashing each other than getting anything done. Each party also seems to whitewash its own principles.

How much hope do we have left when supposed independents such as Glenn Beck tear down constitutional candidates such as Ron Paul and Gary Johnson, while backing up war mongers such as Rick Santorum and draft dodging Mitt Romney?

This country and indeed the world, has never faced so many difference crisis in such a small amount of time before, and it appears that all most people can do is either sit back and ignore it, or call for blood.

The only way to get out of this mess and to avoid a war is to have the courage to stand up as individuals and speak out, to research the subjects which frighten us, to question boldly, to disagree with the status quo, and to share our findings.

I agree with Mike Rivero:

“The battle for the renewal of freedom in this country will not be won with battering rams, bullhorns, and bullets, but will be won to the sound of keyboards, the with bloggers and observers making logical, intelligent, peaceful assessments as to what is happening, and how things can be changed without firing a single shot.”

We must forge a new path if we are to avoid this catastrophe, we can no longer accept the solutions of the past.

The freedom of mankind is won through acts of individual heroism and wisdom. We must stand up for principles not only to save this country, but to become a beacon of hope for the world.

Isn’t it time we advanced ourselves past these stupid wars and look toward the stars once more? Or should we just ‘nuke’ other countries into oblivion and all die a horrible death?

I suppose the biggest and most important question right now is; what are you doing to safegaurd the future of your country, your freedom, and of the world? Are you prepared to do what is necessary to protect our home and humanity?

Share

I’ve now written over 100 posts and reached over 10,000 hits on this site. It is a good feeling to know that I’ve presented information and ideas to so many people. Something else that I’ve started lately is posting on my facebook page. I find that you can reach many thousands of people very quickly by sharing pictures, quotes and captions and sending them to like minded friends.

It is our responsibility, especially those of us who are now completely awake, to post such images, quotes and captions, so that we can reach a larger audience and wake as many people up as possible.

We can share our knowledge, we can spread the message of liberty. With all the modern technology that we now have at our disposal, there is no excuse to sit down and do nothing. Anyone and everyone can at least spread the message in some small way by sharing images, quotes and captions online.

Here are some of the facebook pages which I follow:

ProLiberty

Exposing The Truth

Progressive Libertarianism

1 Billion AGAINST Indefinite Detention without trial 

Freedom Is A State Of Mind

Capitalism

Against Crony Capitalism

Truththeory.org

Outspoken Ron Paul Supporters

Gary Johnson

Those are to name but a few, take a look at my facebook page to find all of them.

We must stand up and speak out if we are to turn this country around. We need not take up arms to overthrow the current repressive regime. The future of this revolution will be non-violent, and it will be uplifting.

“The battle for the renewal of freedom in this country will not be won with battering rams, bullhorns, and bullets, but will be won to the sound of keyboards, the with bloggers and observers making logical, intelligent, peaceful assessments as to what is happening, and how things can be changed without firing a single shot.” – Mike Rivero

Do not worry about Barack Obama and his Marxist references, the communists on the left and the fascists on the right are nearing their end. We will prove that a value backed capitalist economy is far better than a socialist or crony capitalist system.

“Collectivism doesn’t work because it’s based on a faulty economic premise. There is no such thing as a person’s ‘fair share’ of wealth. The gross national product is not a pizza that must be carefully divided because if I get too many slices, you have to eat the box. The economy is expandable and, in any practical sense, limitless.” – P. J. O’Rourke

The economy will get worse and government will become more intrusive, but if we work together, we will overthrow the shackles that have been build around us. This country has too much spirit to simply sit by idly and do nothing.

“From its start, this country was a threat to the ancient rule of mystics. In the brilliant rocket-explosion of its youth, this country displayed to an incredulous world what greatness was possible to man, what happiness was possible on earth” | P3C7 – Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged

Stay positive. Don’t attack others. Simply spread the message and continue to post in a positive way. We need to build the future, not tear it apart.

Share your thoughts, share your enthusiasm, spread liberty. Do not be afraid. The more you speak out, the more the message is spread, the stronger the movement becomes, and the weaker evils grip becomes.

You can defeat any argument with the truth, the truth will set you free. You need not start arguments with others, they will see your posts, and over time, as they study what you have written and do their own research, they will find what you say to be true.

One soul at a time, we will light the furnace of liberty, and freedom will shine again through the world. Share what you have learned, get on Facebook, get on wordpress, get on youtube, express your feelings, show your findings, seek the truth, and the truth will set you free.

Why we fight

I have nothing to gain from these posts except a chance at a future.

There are periods in history where the individual must stand up and fight, or perish with the collective. We are currently living in such a time.

I do not relish the idea of pounding out an article each day. Well; not every day. There are days, as in recently that I’d rather just wake up, take a shower, make a pot of coffee, cook breakfast and take the dog for a walk, and not think about anything but the fresh morning smell and the sun rising.

The reason I study politics and philosophy is because politics affects my life whether I like it or not, and philosophy is the key to unlocking the potential to change the status quo and deal with life in general.

In a political sense, I do not fall into the left/right paradigm. It makes no sense to me, and I only take part in it when there is advancement to be gained toward liberty and economic freedom.

With the current presidential contenders from the democrats and republicans there is a dead heat. They are both as bad as each other. I don’t buy the idea that Barack Obama is an undercover Marxist Muslim here to drive the country back into the stone age. Equally I wouldn’t call Mitt Romney a great businessman, or our lord and savior. At best, these two clowns are puppets who will do whatever their financial backers tell them to. Almost all of those in power have been bought and paid for, and it does not matter if they are all Marxists in disguise or if they are fascists only interested in a quick buck. They are all bad, and they need to go.

I’m not interested in term limits, because there are good congressmen out there such as Ron Paul who have served well for over two decades. Term limits would only give the wrong-doers a tighter time frame to commit their evil acts.

Our problems are far deeper than ‘the economy’, ‘benefits’, ‘medicare/medicaid’ and all the other ‘issues’ that have been trumped up by the past administrations and played like a pied piper for all of us to debate about fruitlessly and endlessly.

The United States has the most advanced document that enshrines human freedom ever conceived by human intelligence. The protection of this document and the enforcement of it by its citizens is paramount to the survival of this country and to the world.

Before the US constitution there was the Magna Carta, a document which was signed in my very own home town of Canterbury, England. For me; freedom and the ability to say and do as you please runs deep.

If we do not restrict the power of government from both sides of the US political isle soon, we will lose the ability to do so entirely.

For my generation, it really is liberty or death. We are not much interested in all the other ‘issues’. On our current path; which is nearing hyperinflation; we know that the economy will fail. We can deal with that, we can rebuild that. But if we lose freedom now, we will never again see it in our lifetime. Economies boom and bust, but can be rebuilt. But can a country which has lost its moral compass return to freedom so quickly? I doubt it.

No one in my age group who I have spoken to seriously about politics is going to vote for Romney or Obama. They are all Ron Paul supporters. We will all be voting for Gary Johnson in this election period, in support of the same ideals. If you are serious about defending liberty, and providing a chance at a future for my generation, I suggest you do the same.

It does not matter if we win the election or not. Mitt Romney is not going to beat Barack Obama. Romney is too stiff, too out of touch, and his rejection of the young and grassroots movements has already cost him the election.

Can we survive another four years of Obama? That is uncertain. Can we afford not to make a difference in this election? No. We must make a difference. The more people vote libertarian, the bigger the message will be to Washington to change its ways. Who knows, we might even win.

Freedom is not won overnight. It takes many battles, many of which will be lost, but over time the message will spread and the war will be won. But it is up to the individuals to stand up and make a difference. And that is why we fight.
