Darkest Before the Dawn

Storm clouds gather over Washington DC. The democrats did not win anything by temporarily ending the shut down. In little over two weeks it will happen again. As the saying goes; you don’t negotiate with terrorists. The democrats are not interested in compromise, they are only interested in power. They have no concern for the American people.

President Trump is playing a high stakes game of winner take all. The border wall is a very big issue. It is the difference between law and order and lawlessness.

The deep state is now showing its teeth for the world to see with the arrest of Roger Stone. Who’s only crime is accidentally ‘lying’ to the FBI. Which essentially anyone can do if asked over and over again multiple questions. Eventually you’ll remember something you forgot previously. Then they pounce on you ‘aha! you lied to us!’ This is not a real crime. There is definitely no ‘collusion.’ What is happening at the top of the FBI is criminal. There was no need for a huge show of force to arrest an unarmed 66 year old man early in the morning. The whole thing with the CNN tip off stinks to high heaven. And lets not get started with  the Hillary Clinton Email server fiasco with all the drives being smashed and deleted. The FBI is rotten at the top and its gestapo like tactics on Friday should shock everyone.

The medias bias is now no longer hyperbole. It really is fake news. We’ve seen this with the Covington Kid. All the MSM networks ran with the story of the kids harassing a native american, when in actual fact it was the opposite way around. The good news with all of this is that the answer to all of the corruption and bias is with the response from Nick Sandmann’s parents. They’ve hired a top lawyer to go after the MSM networks and individuals who have made threats against him. That is the only way to solve this problem. We must fight fire with fire. It is not OK for celebrities and news networks to threaten the lives of children.

With Roger Stone what we will likely see is a Jonah and the Whale scenario. Stone is innocent and he is smart. The fish may have swallowed him up, but it will end up spitting him out. Paul Manafort may have had a shady past, but Stone evidently plays by the rules. After two years of non stop investigation, the only ‘crimes’ on him are ‘process crimes’ of accidentally forgetting to mention something in previous interviews.

If you want to play your part in protecting the republic, I suggest you make your voice heard. Call your representative, support go fund me efforts, get out and protest, comment intellectually on social media. Teach your children. Show people who are on the fence the right way. Be a good person, play your part.

No republic is lost when enough people stand up to tyranny. In this information age, the truth can catch up quickly to the lies and the smears. Keep the faith and keep going. It’s always darkest before the dawn.

Glenn Beck reveals a secret

Last year I became disillusioned with the GOP following the corruption surrounding the Mitt Romney campaign, from the caucuses all the way up until the convention in Tampa.

Now that I have read this article from Glenn Beck, I am glad that things are finally starting to come back together. I knew that Barack Obama would be re-elected by default, but I had hoped that we would be able to move on and upwards with the Liberty movement.

Nearly a year after the re-election of Barack Obama, the liberty movement is in full swing. Rand Paul and Ted Cruz are filibustering, the government is shutdown, Obamacare is the train wreck we said it would be. There has been a million biker march on DC, and this weekend the truckers are heading there to lock up the beltway. Liberty is in full swing, and there is open rebellion within the GOP, between the hardliner progressives, and the libertarian element.

GLENN BECK REVEALS A STORY HE HASN’T BEEN ABLE TO SHARE FOR OVER A YEAR

Glenn Beck shared a story with viewers on Wednesday that he’s been keeping close to the vest since before the 2012 election, explaining that he’s been waiting for the right time to say what exactly happened, and what it means for the country.

It all began, Beck said, in what he believes was late August when he was getting ready to do a number of events with FreedomWorks.

“It’s about 4:00 in the afternoon and I get a call from the president of FreedomWorks, Matt Kibbe, and I can hear the distress in his voice,” Beck said.  “[Kibbe said], ‘Glenn, I’ve just been escorted out of my office by armed guards and told not to come back.’”

Kibbe added that he wasn’t the only one forcefully escorted out, and that they had been hijacked, so to speak, by the “old guard” GOP establishment.

“There was a coup during the election, and it was powerful,” Beck said.  “They were trying to get rid of the libertarian, Tea Party-minded power players, and first and foremost on that hit list was Matt Kibbe and his allies. They didn’t like the fact that FreedomWorks was cleaning house in the GOP…that they were targeting people like Orrin Hatch.  It didn’t sit well with the Karl Roves of the GOP world…”

Glenn Beck Reveals FreedomWorks Coup & Parallels With Senate Conservatives

Beck said that shortly thereafter he got a call from the man inside FreedomWorks who had “ordered the hit,” who explained how the whole situation was “really good” because now he was the face of FreedomWorks and people trust him.

“His face never saw the light of day on my program,” Beck said. “I hung up the phone with him, the next day I called board members of FreedomWorks…and we said we support the libertarian voice, and if you allow this coup to sit, we’re done and we’ll expose it.”

“It wasn’t even a week later the board took a vote and decided to reinstate Matt Kibbe as president,” Beck said. “All the libertarians that had been escorted out – reinstated all of them, and then escorted the leader of this coup and his cronies out the door for good.”

Beck spoke about the ramifications of the “coup” for the 2012 election, remarking: “So don’t tell me, GOP and John Cornyn and everybody else, about how FreedomWorks hurtthe election.  You tied their hands during the last election.”

And now, Beck said, “the exact same thing – the same people really – are doing this” within the Republican Party at large — particularly in the United States Senate.

“Anyone in Congress or the Senate who associates with FreedomWorks, the Senate Conservatives Fund, the Tea Party, anybody, anybody is being targeted by the same class of establishment Republican progressives,” Beck said.  “They do not like it when you organize. They do not like it when you choose the candidates that you actually want.”

Beck added that it’s the same reason lawmakers are not truly pursuing the IRS’ targeting of small government groups, because progressives on both sides “want that tool in place…to come after people like you.”

But with the same struggle that occurred within FreedomWorks now gripping the Republican Party, Beck said that puts you in a position of immense power.

“You are the ones that can change the path.  So when I said to you last week, ‘defund the GOP,’this is why I said it,” Beck explained.  “You are the board of directors…Luckily the board of directors actually believe in something.  And when they figured out they were being lied to, they didn’t want their money in it either. They didn’t want anything to do with it.”

Beck has said multiple times that he has no desire to see a third party, and just like FreedomWorks would have lost years of work and credibility had it given up and started over, so would conservatives if they attempt the same.

But that doesn’t mean that there can’t be an evolution of the Republican Party, Beck said, reminding viewers of how the party began.

“Before the GOP was in existence, it was a two party system – the Democrats and the Whigs,” Beck said.  “Charles Sumner was one of the most hated people by the Whigs and the Democrats…so much that he was literally beaten within an inch of his life on the House floor because no one stepped in to stop it.”

“Within four years,” he continued, “Sumner wasn’t the most hated anymore — he was the most beloved man in the Republican Party, and the Whigs were extinct…I’m telling you that’s what’s coming if we stand.”

Beck said men like Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, and Rand Paul may be the “Charles Sumner” of today, and he has no doubt they will be “the most beloved members of the new Republican Party, or whatever it’s called” in the near future.

I know that many people were upset with the libertarians after the presidential race last November, but many, including myself, are in it to win the war, not just all the battles. Like I said before, Romney was a necessary loss. It’s nice to see people like Glenn Beck starting to say the similar things.

In a few weeks time local elections will be underway, and next year the midterm elections will be going on, we are in a fine position to knock out not only progressive democrats but also RINO’s from the GOP.

Whether we end up infiltrating Republican party with liberty minded candidates, or we end up forming a new one, or renaming it to the capitalist party, whatever happens, we will prevail if we just keep our heads cool, and continue to point out the corruption, no matter how many progressives try to threaten us.

Liberty will prevail.

Thoughts on the 2012 election and the future

I have mixed feelings about the 2012 election. I did not vote for Mitt Romney, but I also did not want Obama to win. I did everything I could to strengthen the liberty movement, and to help the libertarians to offset the corruption of the republican party. I voted for Gary Johnson for president to give the libertarians a cutting edge to build from, but I also voted for many republicans in house and senate seats to overthrow the diluted democrats, who simply do not get it.

I thought Mitt Romney was a progressive and that being elected as president would allow him to sweep our efforts under the rug because he is a conservative, if only in name. Perhaps he would have improved the economy slightly, and bumbled it along a little longer, but I think he also would have started a massive war with Iran, and he would have done nothing for our civil liberties. But all that aside, I know many of you worked hard to get him elected simply because he was the only person with enough power to beat Obama, who has turned out to be a terrible president, and a detriment to our freedoms and our way of life.

I would like to apologize to those who I have upset or offended during the course of this election period. I set out to get Ron Paul elected through the primaries. A man who I thought could actually change things for the better. Sadly he was shunned like a piece of garbage by the crooked establishment and the bought and paid for media. Ron Paul is one of the very few people who still shine as a beacon of hope in a wasteland of empty promises. But what’s done is done, and now we have to move forward. The points that I made over the course of the last few months, particularly against Mitt Romney and the establishment were to prove how corrupt they are and to illustrate just how far gone our republic is that he could ever possibly be our best chance to preserve freedom.

The republicans and the democrats are exceedingly corrupt, and we must continue to throw out the incumbents who do not follow the constitution, and install people who will actually do their jobs the way they are supposed to.

I will continue to point out faults in both parties, but I am willing to work with both the libertarians and the conservatives to find common ground so that we can create a bulwark against the tidal wave which is coming in the form of massive debt, the dollar collapse, and the erosion of civil liberties. Barack Obama’s policies are a detriment to our liberties, and we must stop the attack from both sides of the isle.

I would like to extend my thanks to those of you who worked on the side of liberty, whether we agreed on our methods or not, I know you did what you felt was right, and I did the same. Now is not the time to point fingers, but to find common ground and focus on our strengths so that we can build a future. I think every reader on here will agree on free markets, civil liberties and the protection of the constitution. I think also that by far the biggest issue of the day is the national debt, and we must work to plug the dam immediately if we are to avert a complete currency collapse.

I am willing to work with those of you who believe in individual liberties, and who are working hard to preserve them. I will continue to write articles to expose the looters, and combat the corrupt. I will continue to offer solutions  and to explain my theories along with information that I have found along the way.

Though the storm clouds are gathering, and our greatest challenge is fast approaching, I know that we will prevail. The liberty movement is just getting started!

The good the bad and the ugly

Over the past fortnight we have witnessed political conventions from both the democrats and the republicans. We have also witnessed the birth of a revolution.

Here is ‘The Good, The Bad and The Ugly‘ from the last two weeks:

The Ugly

The Democratic Convention

The Democrats are so far gone, it’s like watching all the bad guys from ‘Atlas Shrugged’ It would take me a year to write out all the things that were wrong with the convention and their view points, and it still wouldn’t get us anywhere.

And no, we do not all ‘belong to the government’

The Bad

The Republican convention

My problem with the republicans is that they talk the talk, but they do not walk the walk. I liked many of the things that were discussed at the convention, but there was nothing concrete, and the president and vice president candidates are no good.

Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan both have horrible spending records, and both support legislation which goes against the constitution. These are the two ‘conservative’ men who are challenging the current president and vice president.

The Good

The Independents

Clint Eastwood’s speech was aimed at all the politicians, and in a way it took a swipe at Romney himself. Clint Eastwood, like Ron Paul, rejected the polished teleprompter speeches, and made up one of his own. His speech could have been directed at almost everyone in government right now.

Ron Paul and his supporters fought to the last minute to get him onto the stage at the convention. The crushing way that the establishment stamped out the grassroots movement, including those of the Tea Parties, has helped expose the criminality and power hoarding behind the scenes.

Ron Paul’s last stand at the convention, and the way he was shunned, has shown us that the republican party is not on the right track, and has driven many of us toward the libertarian movement and to vote for Gary Johnson, who now leads the charge back toward liberty and fiscal responsibility.

Gary Johnson, former republican governor of New Mexico, who won in a state which is 2-1 democrat, and who vetoed over 750 bills while in office, is currently leading the libertarian party. With the disenfranchisement of many republicans and democrats, who know that both parties have lost their way, the libertarian party will see huge gains in November.

Do not fall into the collectivist trap, do not hide in numbers, do not vote for the lesser of two evils. Stand up as an individual and vote for your freedom and liberty.

There is no difference between Romney and Obama, but you can make a difference with Gary Johnson.

At the local level, there are many good republican candidates who support the constitution and fiscal responsibility. It is important that you get out and vote for anyone who espouses the foundations of this nation. This fight will not be won in November, but we will make an impact, and we will start to put the country back on track.

As for the criminals at the top; it’s time to round them up, and send them out!

Stockholm syndrome

Many voters on both sides of the political spectrum are currently experiencing ‘Stockholm syndrome’.

Mitt Romney has a terrible record as governor of Massachusetts, and so does US House Representative Paul Ryan. And yet now that they are on the campaign trail they say a few nice things that make us feel good, and the republicans support them.

The same is true with the Democrats. Barack Obama has been a terrible president, and yet his supporters still root for him as the lesser of two evils, even  though he passed the NDAA act and kept our troops over seas.

George Bush was supposed to be a moderate conservative and yet he massively increased spending, the debts, government and he started two wars. Obama is a continuation of that presidency, and Mitt Romney is an expansion and continuation of that further. And yet we see people on both sides clinging strongly to their statist candidates because they are afraid of what ‘the other side’ might do if elected to office. Rather than realize that their own party is as damaging to their livelihoods and freedoms as ‘the other side’.

We are now expected to vote through fear of what the other side might do if allowed to get office, rather than realizing that both are wrong and will only harm us.

The republican establishment showed last week that it is not interested in your constitutional rights, they laid out in plain sight this year that they are only interested in unbridled power. The RNC prevented Ron Paul from speaking, and shut down any chance of him being nominated.

We have heard that “we need to vote in Romney in first! Then we can influence him!” which sounds like something Nancy Pelosi would say “we need to vote for it first before we read it”.

We’ve now got people thinking that Mitt Romney is a good manager and thinking outside of the box for picking Ryan as a fiscal conservative, which is completely unfounded, given his voting record.

Paul Ryan is not a good man, and is beginning to show his colors again while campaigning. Remember that Paul Ryan practically begged for the auto bailouts:

Mitt Romney chose to shun Ron Paul, who, if only he’d been allowed to speak, and his delegates been allowed to share their voices and concerns, may well have put their support behind him. Instead he choose to put up Clint Eastwood, whom I admire greatly. But Mitt Romney’s Dirty Harry stunt backfired. The liberal media of course derided the speech, but interestingly, so did the conservative media including Glenn Beck. This has helped to expose the fallacy of the left/right media paradigm, and has exposed that they are all corrupt. Not only that, but Clint Eastwood’s speech overshadowed Mitt Romney’s highly edited, polished and robotic speech which was very vague and didn’t specify how to actually fix the economy or return lost liberties to the nation.

It’s very telling of what the republican establishment is doing, when they’d rather have an old man talk to a chair in front of the crowd, than allow another old man to talk about the future of the party and how to restore liberties. I liked the things that Clint said as much as the things Ron say’s, but I’ll stick with Ron on not endorsing Romney.

In a time when information is available everywhere, ignorance is a choice.

I would encourage you to learn about the candidates, what they stand for, and to look at what the power structure is doing in each party.

The republicans are already showing their true colors again. They did nothing good for the country during the Bush administration, and now that they are close to having full power of the house, senate and presidency, they are showing once again what fumbling fools they are. They are simply a milder version of the democrats. Think of Bud light and Budweiser, there’s not much difference in the two of them.

Many people who are over sixty years old believe that anyone but Obama will be good for the country, but they cannot support their arguments with facts, only rhetoric, and memories from the good old days of Eisenhower and Reagan. On the opposite end of the spectrum you have the people who are under forty, almost all of whom support Ron Paul, and are beginning to understand that both parties are deeply flawed and do not follow the constitution.

The liberals were infiltrated by statist ideas a long time ago, and it has become very obvious. The infiltration of the right is less obvious, but it has happened.

The Overton window is a political theory that describes as a narrow “window” the range of ideas that the public will respond to as acceptable, and that the political viability of an idea is primarily defined by this rather than individual preferences of a given politician. It is named after its originator, Joseph P. Overton, former vice president of the Mackinac Center for Public Policy. At any given moment, the “window” includes a range of policies considered to be politically acceptable in the current climate of public opinion, which a politician can recommend without being considered too “extreme” or outside the mainstream to gain or keep public office.

So how do we escape the perpetual downward trend of statism? The first thing to do is to recognize the problem. This chart will help you figure out where you stand on liberties and freedoms:

Take the quiz and see where you rank!

Libertarians offer an alternative answer to our current problems. You might even be a libertarian yourself.

There is only one escape option left for the nation right now, and that is a 3rd party candidacy. Ron Paul was our last chance to steer the republican party from within.

FROM DR RON PAUL

8.27.12

As we enter the fall political season, we will hear a great deal of rhetoric from both major political parties and their many candidates for office. It’s important for us to remember, however, that words can be made meaningless by misuse or overuse. And when we as citizens allow politicians to obscure the truth by distorting words, we diminish ourselves and our nation.

For example, we’ve all heard politicians use the words “democracy” and “freedom” countless times. They are used interchangeably in modern political discourse, yet their true meanings are very different. They have become what George Orwell termed “meaningless words”. Words like “freedom,” “democracy,” and “justice,” Orwell explained, have been abused for so long that their original meanings have been eviscerated. In Orwell’s view, such words were “often used in a consciously dishonest way.” Without precise meanings behind words, politicians and elites can obscure reality and condition people to reflexively associate certain words with positive or negative perceptions. In other words, unpleasant facts can be hidden behind purposely meaningless language. As just one example, Americans have been conditioned to accept the word “democracy” as a synonym for freedom. Thus we are conditioned to believe that democracy is always and everywhere benevolent. The problem is that democracy is not freedom. Democracy is simply majoritarianism, which is inherently incompatible with freedom. While our Constitution certainly features certain democratic mechanisms, it also features inherently undemocratic mechanisms like the First Amendment and the Electoral College. America is a constitutional republic, not a democracy. Yet we’ve been bombarded with the meaningless word “democracy” for so long that few Americans understand the difference. If we intend to use the word freedom in an honest way, we should have the simple integrity to give it real meaning: Freedom is living without government coercion. So when a politician talks about freedom or liberty–regardless of the issue being discussed– ask yourself whether he is advocating more government force or less. The words “liberal” and “conservative” have also been abused. “Liberalism,” which once stood for civil, political, and economic liberties, has become a synonym for omnipotent coercive government. Liberalism has been redefined to mean liberation from material wants, always via a large and benevolent government that exists to create equality on earth. “Conservatism,” meanwhile, once meant respect for tradition and distrust of active government. But in recent decades conservatism has been redefined as support for big-government grandiosity via military adventurism, corporatism, and inflationary monetary policy. The modern political right has redefined conservatism into support for an all-powerful central state, provided that the state furthers supposedly conservative goals. Orwell certainly was right about the use of meaningless words in politics. Our task, therefore, is to reclaim our language and reclaim our liberties. If we hope to remain free, we must cut through the fog and attach concrete meanings to the words politicians use to deceive us.
I hope my posts are somewhat of a counsel to those who are rubbing their eyes in disbelief. I know its hard to give up ideas you’ve held for so long about certain people and certain parties, but the cause of liberty and freedom is worth the sacrifice. I’d rather be told a cold hard truth and learn to live with it, than to be told a comforting lie, only to have its bitterness slowly seep in over time and rot from the inside out.
Do not be discouraged, do not be upset, once you have learned what has happened to both sides of the two party system, you can begin to rebuild your ideas and share them with others. There are many good intellectual libertarian websites out there where you can learn more, and do your part to return liberty and free market concepts to this once free nation.
The time for a third party has come. The time to restore liberties is now. We must restore this nation. Give me liberty or give me death!

Libertarians light the way

There were two things to be taken away from the Republican National Convention in Tampa this week.

One is that the Republican leadership is completely corrupt and does not support the base whatsoever.

The second is that we now live in a police state.

My generation has grown up during the Bush and Obama administrations, and cannot tell the difference between them. We cannot tell the difference between Obama and Romney, and we see through the political spin and pandering. They are all part of the same corrupt bipartisan establishment.

The way we see it; our parents and grandparents generations have lost their way, they believe the lesser of two evils is the way to go.

It has become apparent that only we can forge the future, and that if we don’t, the country will only fall ever deeper into a collective police state abyss.

We understand the free market system as much as the conservatives, and perhaps more so, because we know that our foreign policy is deeply flawed and that the more we trade with other nations instead of bomb them, and the more we cut taxes across the board, the bigger the economy will grow. Libertarians are not liberals, libertarians are capitalists, and believe in fiscal responsibility.

Lady liberty shines her light on the libertarian party. Only 12% of colonists fought the British during the war of independence. The liberty movement is growing, and with shameful acts of aggression from Romney’s people during the republican caucuses, we are now emboldened further in our cause to return liberty to this nation.

We must light the way, because all other policies and parties have failed. Darkness covers the land, and we must become the shining beacon in the night.

If the Tea Parties are successful in electing Romney to president, they will have become the very thing they swore to defeat only a couple of years ago.

In order to win, the libertarians must act like Jedi from Star Wars and use logic and non-violence to expose the shortcomings of both democratic and republican parties. With the DHS stocking up on over a billion rounds of hollow point ammunition, we simply cannot afford to start bloodshed.

People like ‘The Minister of Truth’ are the future of this nation. Here is a black man who is not only railing against Obama, but all the shenanigans of the republican party. ‘TMOT’ understands what true liberty is. I am honored to have found such a person out there in the world. TMOT shows that there is no greater weapon on earth than the human soul on fire.

We libertarians have many prominent voices out there. Ron Paul was our rallying call, and Gary Johnson is now our choice for president. There are many leaders and voices for liberty across the world wide web and in our communities. No matter what the republican establishment tries to tamp out dissent, it will only back fire on them.

We are the future of this country, we are the republicans if they will have us, and if not we’ll do it by ourselves. We have drawn a line in the sand, as the founding fathers did, and we have the constitution and another 200 years of economics and studies of governments and liberties behind us to embolden our views. We will rebuild this country, whether we get started this election or not. Libertarians light the way.

Get an education

In order to find the truth, you must be able to read all the signs as you navigate through the minefields of information on the information highway that is the internet. Never in history has so much information been available to so many people and so easily and cheaply. Also, never has so much misinformation been so widespread, to get people off the scent of corruption.

“Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people.” – Eleanor Roosevelt
There are so many distractions in the world today, that it is easy to forget what you were originally perusing, and even easier to be misguided into thinking completely differently to what you had originally set out to do.
And when speaking about education; I’m not talking about going to college. In fact, college is a big distraction. Over inflation of prices, and corruption, have made a good solid education hard to come by, and the cost to do so, will have you drowning in debt for life.
No, a true education is one that you seek for yourself from your heart. What is it that you truly wish to learn about? Do you want to learn history? What for? Do you want to learn math? Again; what for?
In order for your life to feel complete, if you feel as I do, you need to continually learn new subjects, and discover more about the world around you. It adds to life and the spice of it, when you can speak a few sentences in French, or name a fancy wine, or even talk about the affects of the British Empire on the modern world.
Can you read maps? Can you spot the difference between a genuine statement and a lie? The more you read about the world around you, and the further you go to discover the real truth, the more educated you will become.
It is not merely enough to ‘get a degree’ or follow the current flow of your country. The definition of intelligence is the ability to decipher information and understand the whole meaning of problems presented to you. A real education is to gain an understanding of the world around you, and how to make the most out of it.
There is a common theme among the people who didn’t go to college, many are inventors and innovators, and many simply have a unique understanding of business. One of my favorite books is ‘think and grow rich’ Because the mindset of believing in yourself and pushing yourself forward, is what propels these people to be successful.
Another great book is Rich Dad Poor Dad, which is a book about a boy who learns that even though his dad is a teacher, and very intelligent, he is also poor. And even though his friend’s dad is not very well educated, he is fast becoming wealthy.
Rich dad poor dad is a book that I read when I was 14 years old, and I can define it as the single most important book I’ve ever read, as far as putting me on a different path to everyone else. No I’m not a multimillionaire, and I’m not going to spew out a bunch of get rich quick programs for you to join, although I’ve come across my fair share of them. No, this book really gets you thinking about living life differently, and about how education effects your future.
Start looking at the world around you, and start thinking outside the box, and that is where your real education will begin.
