How to live free in an unfree world

Democrat-Socialists tear things down vs. building anything better...

"American Democracy" implies individual and personal freedom. But with the word "democracy" as cover, our American system was gradually transformed from its republican form, where it rose like the phoenix with the same face but with all 10 planks of the Communist Manifesto implemented with the full force of the law and the power of the state...and the media!

They didn't change our name from America to The Democratic Peoples State, nor arrest us in the middle of the night. Instead, Congress and the unelected pointy-headed cubicle dwellers stalking the halls of power have passed laws and regulations — and presidents signed executive orders — putting American people directly and absolutely under an authoritarian system.

And you know what? These laws were passed "legally" and sanctimoniously having the merest color of law right under our noses. Is it any wonder that the elected class has alienated most of the public? In 1958 73 percent of Americans trusted the federal government to do right all or most of the time. Since then it's plunged to the 15-20 percent range.

When we vote Republicrat or Democon, we are not voting in a free election. We are merely rubber-stamping an entrenched bureaucratic system under the pretense of American Democracy. You are now meant to believe we have a "federal" election in this country. We do not. We have elections in each state, and they certify the results that send people to federal office. There is no "national" election. Only one in one million Americans realizes this.

No matter how obviously bad things get in America, that word "democracy" gives the people a completely false sense of security. It shields corruption to the core. It keeps Americans going to the polls and voting for myths and fantasies. Above all, it gives American fascism a pretty face.

Democracy equals socialism equals communism equals fascism. They are all totalitarian forms of collectivism demanding self-sacrifice and total allegiance to the state and are all anathema to life and liberty and property.

However, it's naïve and wholly inaccurate to ascribe this philosophy only to Democrats. Almost all politicians, Democrat and Republican, embrace socialism in many forms.

Always remember: The government has nothing good or nice to give to you. The government is in the business of shrinking freedom (and wealth), not expanding it. Politicians regularly espouse human liberty and democracy at the same time. This is impossible! Human liberty is not available in a collectivist system. Human liberty is only available to the individualist.

The individual vs democracy 

Individualism and human liberty are opposite to democracy and any other form of collectivism. The collectivist mentality or the mass collective mind is the spirit of the New World Order. The collectivist man cannot oppose tyranny because he is himself tyranny. He is the reality of the supreme welfare state in its conspiracy of the ages to manipulate humanity against itself.

The collectivist mentality lures mankind to guidance from "higher authorities" (government). The crowd wants prepackaged truth and human freedom granted by government authority rather than being forced to use their own consciousness for making decisions and determining their own actions. Hence, they are easily deceived and manipulated by some altruistic nonsense.

People often ask me, "Bob, who are you voting for?" in this or that national election. My response is always the same. "No one." Why would I waste my time selecting between Tweedle Dumb or Tweedle Dumber when both are collectivists and agents of the same global elites? Ron Paul is no longer running... show me a politician from either party who believes what I believe and I will vote for them.

"But Bob," they say, "If you don't vote for candidate X, you are voting for candidate Y. Candidate Y will do thus and so and bring down our nation."

This is not so.

As it stands, all candidates — and congress, with few exceptions — worship the state and consider the state as the only cure for all ills. They are beholden to the system. They worship the god of this world, money. They seek to divide the people and place them into one group or another and then to pit them against each other – Republican vs. Democrat, liberal vs. conservative, white vs. black, male vs. female, straight vs. sodomite, Christian vs. Muslim, Christian vs. Jew, Christian vs. nonbeliever — in order to achieve political power.

Group identity can be any religious group, any racial group, any fraternal group — either secret or open — and any social group. As one loses his/her identity to group thought, then he/she becomes manipulated by the phony altruistic pronouncements of politicians and authority. This is to say that when one loses self he is transferred to group thought. We are one or the other.

Governments and their politicians strive to move humanity from the ego or self to the group. This is the foundation of government deception and power. The stronger the group's appeal, the more one can be led into and deceived by altruism and altruistic appeals. The goal of this deception is to con people into ceding more power and wealth to the entrenched elite based on phony altruistic nonsense.


Groups impress upon one's psychic concepts pseudo "facts" that are unprovable and have no foundation in fact but are accepted as an absolute for generation after generation. Group dynamics promote altruism and a mind locked out of reality. Groups socialize and dehumanize.

Communication fails between husband and wife, between friends, between neighbors, between professional associates, etc., etc., in direct relation to group influences and their degree of altruism.

This is not altruism as you have probably been led to believe. This altruism is a morality based on the philosophical premise that man lives for the sake of others... that man's life and property are available for sacrifice to "higher causes" (e.g., the common good, the public interest, society, the needy, the world, country, the flag, etc.). Herr Hitler used the morality of altruism with his "higher good" to which anything and everything should be sacrificed for the "National Will."

Why are we on the 'Animal Farm'?

The animal farm is that world arena wherein man collectively surrenders himself, his personal being, his ego to the collective and obedient faith in government authority. It's all very simple. A crowd can be manipulated into an altered state of consciousness, finally evolving into a growing attitude of docility, whereas an individualistic person cannot be manipulated so easily.

Believe me, the politicians and bureaucrats know this and use it for ongoing deception. This is how people are enslaved.

The state always considers that a self-sufficient and independent thinker is a threat to collectivism and its efforts to deceive the masses. This is because we dare not fall into the trap of ascribing too much power to government and politicians who sell their souls to the god of this world in the political realm by placing too much emphasis on the political system.

I spend thousands of dollars each year for publications that contain millions of dollars worth of information. I feel a conviction to decipher it and bring it to you in these Bob Livingston Alerts.

Raising Quick Cash for Unexpected Bills

One of my favorite ways to preserve food is to seal it in Mylar bags and store them in food-grade buckets. With this method you can store a lot of food in a small space, your food will have a very long shelf life, and you can reuse the buckets as many times as you want.

But there's another bonus to using buckets that many people forget: In a long-term disaster, you can use them for all sorts of other things. This post describes 21 uses for buckets (especially five-gallon buckets), and after you read it you'll never throw a bucket away again.

You can always buy buckets online or at a home improvement store, but there are many cheaper alternatives. I just did a search for buckets on Craigslist and found several for a couple of dollars each in my area. Chances are you can find some in your area, too. You may also find them for as little as a dollar at your local flea market...

TRS volt power bank  - Back in stock!

3000mAh Power Bank Battery by Volt comes complete with a micro USB charging cord. This battery can be used as an extra or replacement battery


I’ve purchased a couple of power banks to add to my bug out bags. Do they lose power over time? How often should I check or recharge them?


-From Chris D.


Answer: A quality power bank can hold a charge for up to 6 months.


The thing is, most power banks will slowly lose charge over time depending on the temperature the power bank is stored at.


In addition, lithium-ion, and lithium-polymer batteries used in power banks eventually lose their capacity (typically between 200 up to 1000 cycles depending on the battery cell quality.)


The bigger the battery is, the less cycles you will need to charge it and the longer it will last. But, I would check them every 6 months if I were you.

Leftists would lose in a Civil War

A Digest of Urban Survival Resources


The authoritarian left would be easily beaten during a civil war

There are a lot of assumptions and misconceptions when it comes to the notion of a second civil war within the U.S.

What I see most often is the argument that the political left has "already won" the war without firing a shot, and that a rebellion would be crushed under the heel of a newly a-wokened military-industrial complex and a leftist controlled federal government. The problem is this argument is extremely naive and ignores the bigger picture.

I think there are a couple of reasons why people press the leftist supremacy theory: First, they greatly fear the idea of a kinetic war breaking out and find the concept of combat repellent. So, they act as if a shooting war cannot ever be won and even considering the possibility is "stupid." They hide their cowardice behind a veil of false analysis and thin promises of passive resistance. They figure that if they can't fight and win, then no one else can fight and win.

Second, one of the primary functions of 4th Generation (psychological) warfare is to convince a target population that "resistance is futile." If you can make them believe that winning is impossible, then they may not fight at all, and thus the prophecy is self-fulfilling.

Luckily this method of propaganda does not seem to be working on a large number of Americans, but the threat goes far beyond leftist acolytes. The bottom line is this — while the extreme cultism of leftists is relegated to a small percentage of the population, they are supported by almost every major institution in our nation. The federal government supports and protects them. Some state and local governments support and protect them. The media avidly sings their praises. Most corporations and Big Tech platforms support them and spread social justice doctrine along with them. And all globalist foundations support them, organize them and even fund them.

All the people that the political left used to consider evil are now on their side. This is the reality. By extension, this gives their small cult unprecedented social power and a number of weapons to use when they desire to threaten people who disagree with them. The social justice warriors have spent a lot of time trying to censor and shut down conservative platforms and voices, but they actually expend most of their energy keeping their own side in line.

There are many moderate democrats that have a distaste for the lunacy of SJWs, but many are so afraid of being labeled heretics, racists, fascists, etc. that they keep their mouths shut or support draconian policies because they think they have to in order to defend their political "team." The limp-wristed moderates and old-school democrats that go along to get along are almost as big a problem as the hardcore leftists.

This is how we end up with around half the country in support of vaccine passport mandates, a totalitarian agenda which would give government complete control over the health decisions of individual Americans, complete control over how businesses operate and who they are allowed to hire and complete control over the economic participation of the average citizen. Vaccine passports are the ultimate power to decide the life and death of individuals and their families. And, not surprisingly, the political left and democrats are by far the biggest group backing the government and the globalists on this agenda.

This places our nation in a difficult position; the political left desperately wants to control the lives of others while conservatives and some moderates just want to be left alone. We are at an impasse. We cannot share the same spaces; we cannot share the same government and we may not even be able to share the same landmass. Our ideals are mutually exclusive. We believe in freedom and individual responsibility, and they simply do not.

Make no mistake, an outright conflict is coming in the U.S., and the people in alternative media circles that fear it need to come to terms with that fear and accept the inevitability of war. The sooner they do this the sooner they can take action to mitigate the damage to their families and communities. There will come a day very soon when you will have to defend your freedoms and the freedoms of future generations with your life. Embrace it and move on.

The amount of strength attributed to leftists by some conservatives is a little bizarre. Certainly, their social power is extensive in that all major U.S. institutions aid them in their efforts to harm others. That said, when it comes down to it the left is a paper tiger, a mirage, a pufferfish bloating itself in the hopes that its much larger enemies will not take a bite out of it. In the event of civil war the political left would be annihilated easily.

A woke military? Let's not get ahead of ourselves...

The most prominent claim being made that leftists would win revolves around the new woke propaganda being spread by the Department of Defense in the form of recruitment ads. Firstly, polling of military personnel shows around 30 percent identify as Republican and 40 percent identify as Independent, with the majority of the independents being Libertarians and Constitutionalists. In other words, 70 percent of the U.S. military leans conservative in their principles.

The military brass going hard left is meaningless if the majority of soldiers are not going to follow them into battle to oppress their own people. We are seeing this already in terms of the current serving who are refusing to take the experimental COVID vaccines. Polling in the summer suggested that at least 50 percent of soldiers would refuse to take the mRNA vax. The DoD claims that at least 70 percent of soldiers are now vaccinated, but this is unconfirmed and probably an exaggeration designed to manufacture a false consensus. We will soon know the real stats because the Biden administration is threatening "dishonorable discharges" for soldiers that refuse to comply.

The argument here is that with conservatives leaving the military in droves, this opens the door to a fully woke military of the far left. This assumption presupposes that woke leftists actually want to join the military or that they are capable of meeting the bare minimum standards. They are not.

Over 75 percent of Americans ages 18-24 are ineligible for the U.S. military because of lack of education, obesity, physical problems, psychological problems and criminal history. This negates 24 million people from the 34 million in this age range for recruitment. Since 70% of the military is conservative/libertarian, this means that either more young conservatives are healthy enough to pass the recruitment phase, or, far more conservatives are interested in volunteering, or it could be both factors combined.

In any case, just because 30-50 percent of soldiers leave in the face of the vaccine mandates, this does not mean that the void will be filled by leftists. In fact, it is likely that the void will not be filled at all, and the military will be left to stagnate as recruitment collapses. The pool of talent is already small, and the DoD just shrank their options by at least 30 percent more.

To summarize, there will never be a woke U.S. military. The institution would collapse before it ever reached such a "lofty" goal.

Biden's vaccine mandates are in a way highly beneficial for conservatives and freedom advocates because they are forcing the current serving off the fence. Soldiers will now be required to consider what liberties they are willing to violate just to stay in the military, because it's not going to stop with a couple of forced vaccinations, it's going to escalate. We may see a massive influx of discharged soldiers joining the liberty movement in the near future because of Biden's totalitarian behaviors.

Conservatives own the gun culture and firearms training

Beyond the military, U.S. gun culture is dominated by conservatives. Leftists are slowly beginning to realize that being anti-gun is sabotaging their own agendas, and many started buying firearms because of the primal terror they felt in the face of the Orange Man. But owning guns is not the same thing as knowing how to use them. It would take leftist many years, perhaps decades to catch up to the pure knowledge base that conservatives have when it comes to firearms and tactical training. These things have been passed down through conservative families for generations. And, again, most combat veterans are also conservative.

This is not to say that there are no leftists out there that are firearms proficient. I'm sure there are a few. But most of the time when leftists get together with guns the results are either painfully embarrassing or dangerous. Just check out this video from Angry Cops on the BLM-inspired "Not F$%king Around Coalition" (NFAC) group. Not only do they end up shooting each other, but their representatives don't even understand the basics of how their own rifles function when they argue that the shooting was the "gun's fault."

And let's not forget the good old "John Brown Gun Club" and their rockin' recruitment videos that made us choke on our own laugh tears a few years ago. The leftists are shockingly inept when it comes to guns and combat skills. They are a minimal threat to conservatives if civil war is the issue.

You can't win if you're not willing to die for what you believe in

Leftists are adamant about their ideologies, and they are keenly interested in demanding other people die for the cause. But, when they are forced to face personal risk to achieve their directives, they will usually run. You can see this in the mob confrontation with Kyle Rittenhouse in Kenosha; a horde of leftists was perfectly willing to chase him down with the intention of killing him, but when he turned to fight and a few of them got shot (including a convicted pedo), their enthusiasm suddenly evaporated.

Why do they run? Because their religious fervor for Marxism is an act. It's not real. Deep down, they don't even believe in what they are doing, and this is what separates freedom fighters from all other armed forces. We accept the possibility of death and fight in the face of overwhelming odds because the goal of freedom is worth it. Most authoritarians and useful idiots, when faced with dying for their ideology, will abandon the cause. They have entered the fight with a built-in disadvantage.

The real fight will not be with average Marxist leftists

Half the states in the U.S. now have some form of anti-mandate laws or executive orders in place. Half the country is vehemently against vaccine passports. If Biden continues on his current path, a soft secession of red states will begin, and the mandates will be ignored. This will leave Biden with a handful of options. He will invariably seek to punish red states by cutting off federal funds, and when that doesn't work, he will have to put boots on the ground and use Orwellian methods to round up dissidents.

Should civil war erupt (and I'm positive at this point that this is unavoidable), leftists will not last long. The majority of veterans and a large portion of the military are not going to fight against their own people, and they may even step in to assist us. A large number of police and sheriffs are also conservative and are unlikely to intervene. So, the question is, who is willing to die for leftists and their cult? I suspect not many.

The Left is going for the death blow,
"all-in" to destroy the America we love!

What do Antifa, BLM, Teachers Unions, Colleges, Media, the Squad, Progressives, Marxists, Democrats all share in common?  Their non-stop drumbeat of hate, hysteria, divisiveness, vitriol, contention, fear and  hyperbole [lies]…led by professional liars Biden and Pelosi while supported by Big Tech, the DOJ and FBI.


But the people behind the leftist movement have a vested interest in eliminating conservative ideals and heritage. Globalist institutions working with the Biden administration will surely seek to intervene. They will call us "white supremacists" even though many conservatives are black and brown. They will call us evil nationalists, even though there is nothing wrong with a national identity that values freedom.

They will say we are "insurrectionists" even though we will be acting in self-defense against an authoritarian regime. They will call us terrorists while using terrorist tactics and false flags against us. And they will claim that we are far too dangerous to be allowed to maintain our own nation or our own states.

Their main rationale will fall to the U.S. nuclear arsenal. They will claim that a nation of terrorists cannot be allowed to possess nuclear weapons, and at the first sign that Biden (or Kamala) is losing control, there will be a call for UN intervention. Count on it. An international force would be organized to try to stop us from existing. This is where the real fight would begin.

The political left is a footnote, and while we should continue to remain vigilant as they push their agenda, it is important to remember that there are much bigger fish to fry and we need to plan for the next dozen battles, not just the first. How we conduct ourselves from here on may determine whether or not freedom survives for many decades to come.

Silent Amnesty for Illegals via Thousands of Cancelled Deportations

The Washington Times reports that “while the new woke Congress is starting work on legislation to legalize illegal immigrants, the Biden administration is already quietly suspending or dismissing thousands of deportation cases pending in immigration courts.” Deportation orders, as a percentage of decided cases, have plummeted to 35 percent from January to June. That is about half the rate of 2019 and 2020 under the Trump administration.

“They’re dismissing these cases out of hand, and then ICE is releasing these people from custody,” said one department source. This gives so-called “migrants” de facto permission to remain in the country even though they do not hold legal status and have no right to remain

Stockpiling food, water, and supplies to sustain you and your family for a long time can get very expensive. For some, it just isn't feasible to spend hundreds of dollars or more every week buying supplies that won't be used right away.

Don't be embarrassed. Most people can't afford to do that. The trick is to buy used supplies so you can put the money you save toward your food purchases.

Shopping at thrift stores like the Goodwill store is a great way to save money. It's extremely satisfying to score a good deal on something you really need. You'll find yourself bragging about how cheap something was rather than how expensive it was. ..
