Countering the anti-freedom movement
We are at the end of another election cycle, exercising our rights as a free people.
If the people imagine that they are free, all sorts of crimes by the political system can be imposed, without protest. It is mental force instead of physical.
What do I mean? A friend took a trip to Mexico recently and saw heavily armed guards in front of some businesses — for protection I presume. I am told that in Russia as well as many other countries heavily armed guards can be seen everywhere.
Why do we not see these armed guards in America? Does this suggest that our "democracy" has allowed us more freedom?
We don't need private armies aimed at us because we are programmed with the words "rule of law," "freedom" and "democracy." They are an invisible armed guard.
Mental democracy is a psychological weapon of the state that motivates the people to love the state, and engage in state worship. This is why politics has become so personal.
If we focus on this word democracy as an organism, we can tie the visible to the invisible and thus reveal the subterfuge.
Democracy is an organism used to pacify the people. And what is an organism? An organism is a repetitive dogma that neutralizes the mind. Its purpose is to integrate the freedom concept of democracy into the American psyche. It is not formal. It has no overt organization. It may function legally or illegally within the law or above the law. It is never identified as to its true name and purpose. It has no ethnic, social or legal connotation. It is powerful psychological warfare.
One of the fastest ways to clear the mental fog is to realize that the two-party political system is only one. Anyone clinging to the illusion will be deceived to their grave.
Given the hyperpartisanship of today's political discussions and the broad divide now found between people who vote Republican and people who vote Democrat — I will leave the modern definition of those terms up to you, dear reader — to the majority of the voting public, at least, those terms have morphed into meaning something they did not just a generation ago.
But whether you rejoice or are disappointed when a member of Congress is defeated, you should never feel sorry for him or her. They still have a lucrative career ahead. Same for Congressional staff and upper-level bureaucrats who move back and forth between K Street and various Federal alphabet soup agencies. They are the true 1 percent.
The powerful, rich and well-connected politicians in America all use the dysfunctional political system and the money-printing central banks to their every advantage. The U.S. reckless system has created an enormous economic and political mess. The scene now reminds one of vultures flocking around a carcass.
Can or will anything be corrected now? All that anyone in power can suggest now is more laws and money printing. There are no financial answers, and there are no political reforms on the table; so politicians will continue to postpone meaningful reforms, which will lead us to the final crisis unless we have truly elected people to office this past week who want change. If not, the present system is doomed. It is only a matter of recognizing what is happening and making preparations to survive.
I am sorry to give you this sad information, but my vast reading and study confirms it. And if you cover the amount of material that I do, you will be on the same page.
There is a better day coming if the good people prevail and seize power.
We could turn the clock back toward human liberty by doing one simple thing: limiting the terms of Representatives and Senators to just one, with no pensions. Also, they should be put on Social Security and receive the same medical benefits as the American people! There should be no privilege associated with elected office. Will we do anything? Have we, this past election? The entire government is infested with psychopaths who will not relinquish any of their accumulated power themselves.
There are now millions of people who know the critical situation in America and understand that America has been sold out and hollowed out and that what is left is an impoverished people and a controlled people. It is well that the U.S. authorities know full and truly the shock potential of the social order in the United States. They are buying time, and treating anyone who opposes them as an enemy of the state.
Remember that Mussolini said of his fascism, "We have buried the putrid corpse of liberty," and that is likewise the goal of the American politician and federal bureaucrat. Liberty necessarily perishes under collectivism, egalitarianism and government altruism.
The criminal political class has made it quite clear that they and their government functionaries are a parasitic "taker" class that has the general public too distracted by bread and circus, Hollywood antics, amoral lifestyles, reality TV, and sporting events, and too easily swayed by slick oratory, fancy suits and promises of government largesse, to recognize totalitarianism in the regime of Congress and it enablers.
The remedy is Americans who believe in the rule of the law, the Constitution and liberty.
We are the ones who need to vote for closing the revolving door between Congress, Congressional staffs, watchdog agencies and big corporations.
Republicans claim to have the corner on genuine conservatism, much as Democrats claim to have the corner on genuine liberalism. Both claims are untrue but are perceived as true thanks to mass deception. Today's conservatism and liberalism are but twin pincers of the same, dynamic, ever-changing, collectivist dialectic.
We must default to individual liberty in all things, and small,
Constitutional government in politics and governance. Anything else I consider
to be anti-freedom.
Yours for the truth,

Socialist Slugs defy odds; many win reelection…
With his executive power, Biden can wage a war of terror against the American people by dismantling the food and energy infrastructure that keeps people alive. In fact, Biden has already promised to do exactly that.
All of this is taking place at exactly the same time a diesel shortage is starting to spread across America. We are going to experience regional diesel outages and delayed refueling times, which will translate into delayed shipments of everything.
3 Ways To Turn Salt Water Into Drinking Water
“Water, water, everywhere, And all the boards did shrink; Water, water, everywhere, Nor any drop to drink.”
These famous lines from Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s 1798 poem “The Rime of the Ancient Mariner” remind us of one of the cruel ironies about living on Planet Earth. Although water covers 75 percent of our planet, more than 97 percent of it is undrinkable salt water.
Consuming large amounts of salt water is toxic to the human body. Experts estimate that for every gallon of salt water you drink, you’d need to drink a least a gallon of fresh water to allow the kidneys to do the job of flushing the salt out of your body...
