Socialism: Opiate of the Masses

Let’s get something straight. There is no pure form of socialism, where “the government owns the means of production.”

The means of production own the government, and vice versa. It’s always collusion. Elite power players stitch themselves together like a walking Frankenstein corpse.

Socialism can be done with a smile or with guns and jails. Styles vary.

In 1966, Carroll Quigley, author of Tragedy and Hope, wrote: “The Council on Foreign Relations [CFR] is the American branch of a society which originated in England [and] believes national boundaries should be obliterated and one-world rule established.”

You could call the CFR’s agenda socialism or Globalism or fascism or dictatorship—it doesn’t matter. For the sake of brevity, I’ll call it socialism.

At street level (not within the CFR), every proponent of the socialist “solution” either has no idea who installs it and runs it, or he astonishingly believes “the government” can be transformed into a beneficent enterprise and shed its core corruption, as it takes the reins of absolute power.

Meanwhile, the ultra-wealthy elites who use socialism as a weapon, while propagandizing it as our humanitarian future, know full well THEY will run it, and they have no qualms about placing severe limits on the freedom of populations. They want to impose those limits.

Hope and Change, the slogan of the former US president, was perfect for street-level socialists. It was vague enough to be injected with their own vague dreams and fantasies.

Colleges—or as I call them, Academies of Great Generalities—have been turning out these fantasists by the ton. “If I feel it, it must be true and good.”

Again, socialism is by, for, and of the ultra-wealthy elites. It is not a movement on behalf of the downtrodden.

As Gary Allen puts it in his 1971 classic, None Dare call It Conspiracy: “…pressure from above and pressure from below… The pressure from above comes from secret, ostensibly respectable Comrades in the government and [elite Globalist] Establishment, forming, with the radicalized mobs in the streets below, a giant pincer around middle-class society. The street rioters are pawns, shills, puppets, and dupes for an oligarchy of elitist conspirators working above to turn America’s limited government into an unlimited government with total control over our lives and property.”

“The American middle class is being squeezed to death by a vise. In the streets we have avowed revolutionary groups… Virtually all members of these groups sincerely believe that they are fighting the Establishment. In reality they are an indispensable ally of the Establishment in fastening Socialism on all of us. The naive radicals think that under Socialism the ‘people’ will run everything. Actually, it will be a clique of Insiders in total control, consolidating and controlling all wealth. That is why these schoolboy Lenins and teenage Trotskys are allowed to roam free and are practically never arrested or prosecuted. They are protected. If the Establishment wanted the revolutionaries stopped, how long do you think they would be tolerated?”

The Insurance Scam Explained

Insurance companies are not the free market. They were voluntary socialism until the insurance industry found they could get the politicians to require we buy their product. It started with auto insurance and they will try to force us to buy all their products if we allow it. The Medical insurance was just the next and most profitable opportunity for them.

We no longer buy the insurance, auto or medical, for ourselves and our family. We are buying it for others and “for the good of society” to supposedly prevent those who can not afford care from suffering. But just like the auto insurance as soon as it became mandatory the profits and prices vaulted to astronomical high numbers. The average auto repair is high as a kite and the medical insurance and care prices have followed that model.

As was pointed out on the Hannity radio program the other day, all medical procedures and treatments have increased in cost to the payor of the bills with the exception of breast augmentation surgery which is generally not covered by insurance has not increased in the last 10 years. Everything that is covered by insurance has increased exponentially. Big surprise? Not really. The Government and the insurances companies are in the hospital business not the people who need the care, they have partnered in this plan and will both profit at our expense with the force of law to obtain compliance. We need to bring back the old “Mutual Insurance” company with the policy holders as owners and excess profit returned to the owners. We need to buy back our hospitals and make agreements with our doctors that benefit them and ourselves not stock holders and Governments. We need the Church run hospitals to be allowed to thrive in their own right and all the help we as good citizens can give them but free of government interference.

I think it is obvious we can’t add a layer of government and a profit driven business to the medical industry and make it work at a price we can afford. Get those two out of the equation and go back to allowing the churches to do the charity for the poor and everyone will get medical care. We won’t make any of the big corporations rich in the process but what is the goal, making some big corporation rich or keeping people healthy at a reasonable price most can afford?

Since 1865, Our Public Education Is Not Congruent with Our Founding

As I contemplate the constitutional foundations and unconstitutional prior restraint aspects of Arizona public school system journalism classes and the subject legislation—AZ SB1384—I realize that none of us are actually answering the question of how to resolve it.

The solution is to recognize the basic tenet of public school education in America as it was allowed to develop outside the purpose of representative governance in our nation. The concept of We the People establishing and maintaining a school system through our state governments—with surreptitious control by the national government beginning in 18651, and coming fully out-of-the-closet with President Carter’s creation of the cabinet-level Department of Education in the late 1970s—is not congruent with the principles upon which the United States of America are founded.

This is the underlying cause of the state in-which we find our public “education” system today. The more governments control “education,” the less it is maintained “of the people, by the people and for the people.” It is no longer administered and controlled for our individual children, but, for the special interests, and those in-power, in governments—from the local governing board, county and state levels, to the national level.

Have you ever wondered why the office of the state superintendent is called “of public instruction,” and not “of public education?” The reason is the same as I was expounding upon the other day; the purpose of the progressive movement behind the takeover of the concept of public “education” that made huge inroads beginning in the mid-1860s, was, and continues to be, to gain control of American minds and productivity through “instruction,” AKA: “indoctrination,” as opposed to “education,” or, “teaching.”

Over time, the progressive philosophers have achieved near-complete success in transforming our citizenry and our nation to an oligarchic collectivist state, in collusion with technocratic crony capitalists.

This state is what has brought us to pupil and student public school system journalists being shackled and stifled by prior restraint at the hands of their “advisers.”

The only way public-funded and controlled “education” can actually become free again is by returning the power to the parents and others who have our children’s freedom to exercise our Liberty under God as their paramount goal.

The solution to the problem is to educate the parents and others as to what is happening, and that they are the ones who can and must resolve the usurpation by public school system employees of power they do not lawfully hold.

Parents—with the assistance of other citizens—living in the jurisdiction of a public school (district, charter, reservation, or “?”), must exercise their inherent God-given right to direct their children’s education. This right is actually recognized and codified in A.R.S. 1-601 & -602. But, government has been allowed to ignore it as long as We the People are ignorant. Regardless of any judicial ruling to the contrary, parents have the right to direct their children’s education, health care and other aspects of their lives.

Therefore, the solution is for parents and other citizens to demand pupil and student right of free expression pursuant to the Constitution of Arizona, Art.2.§6, and Title 1-601 & -602:

  • In behalf of high school pupils: beginning with advisers and administrators, then the local governing board, possibly county superintendents, on to the state superintendent of public instruction, then in the AZ State Supreme Court, pursuant to Article VI.§5(1), if necessary to obtain a writ against the superintendent.
  • In behalf of post-secondary students: beginning with advisers and administrators, proceeding to appropriate boards and on to the superintendent of public instruction—who is the highest education official of the State of Arizona—and then to the State Supreme Court, if necessary.

This is the only constitutional solution to prior restraint of pupil and student journalists in Arizona, and these journalists would be best served by their parents and other citizens rising to defend them within the public school system.

Other than beginning an amendment to deny the right of free expression to the pupils and students, if that is what Arizonans really want to do in opposition to the First Amendment protections!—The only constitutional remedy that could be enacted by the State Legislature is one that recognized the rights already protected by the First Amendment, the State Constitution and the Arizona Revised Statutes. Such an enactment would ideally codify punishment for those advisers, public school administrators, local governing board members who vote to uphold violators, and—depending-upon how far up the food-chain the complaint travels—county superintendents, and the state superintendent of public instruction who are imposing and/or protecting journalistic prior restraint.

The bottom line is: Prior restraint of public school system journalists is already unconstitutional and unlawful; Parents must protect their children by reclaiming their power! They must demand the eradication of journalistic prior restraint from our public schools

As university student journalists, you have the platform to serve the Citizens of Arizona well by offering a thoroughly objective analysis of this crucial constitutional question in an honest and courageous work of student journalism. I know you will rise to the occasion!

Thank you for your desire to hear and present all sides of the question. I do anticipate seeing your end-product!

What is Liberty? What is a Mind?

“Liberty is the child of intelligence.” (Robert Ingersoll, 1877)

A mind that can’t grasp the concept of liberty wanders in a dark asylum of illusions.

The American Constitution wasn’t written to generate passive benefits. It wasn’t a philosophic food-stamp operation.

Originally, the aim of public education was to impart an understanding of what it meant to participate in a new Republic, as a citizen, in a great experiment.

And that experiment was liberty. With responsibility.

My comment – Personally I like this better: “And that experiment was freedom with Responsibility“.

Distinguishing between liberty and freedom!

So Liberty = “Freedom with Responsibility“.

The Difference between a Republic and Democracy

Introduction

Today we are going to talk about the difference in-between a Republican and a democracy. It’s a very subtle difference, although it amounts to night and day. To illustrate this point were going to do a little skit, where a Sheriff saves and alleged horse thief from hanging. That’s the law in a Republic.

Middle

It tall patriot man in an Uncle Sam suit stole my horse. And that’s him over there to the crowd. Should we hanging? The crowd chants back of course we hang! That’s what we do in the West. Okay, Bill you got a rope. I sure do bill says. Uncle Sam pleads no I didn’t do it. Oh yes you did I saw your right off the with that yesterday. Uncle Sam, no no no that wasn’t me. The crowd, there’s a tree and bills got the rope. Let’s hanging now. We can use the horse he stole to get him up high so he drops good.
The Sheriff arrives on the scene. He says no no no no as not what we do in this country. This is a Republic, not a democracy. This is not mob rule.

Ending

Okay summing up, realize that a Republic is about law and order and of protecting the minorities from mob rule. So all you minorities out there, whatever situation you are in, you don’t need special laws to protect you in a Republic! Sorry to say I have to add theoretically. Not all humans are fair and decent people.
Also, it should be noted that the Communist Manifesto proclaims democracy as a step towards their end goal.

“Good Behaviour!”

The Constitution does not give the federal Judiciary authority to override an Executive Action. The Executive Branch needs to stop submitting to judicial tyranny. It is time to tighten constitutional chains. The Constitution gives us the means to “term limit” the federal Judiciary: Invoke the “Good Behaviour” clause to rein-in those who usurp power to advance their own subversive tyrannical agenda. Judicial activism violates the Constitution and standards of Good Behaviour. It is, by logic and reason, impeachable. There is nothing to the contrary in the Constitution; therefore, We the People being sovereign, the right is inherent in US to demand removal of the offenders.

Thomas Jefferson on the federal Judiciary’s power usurpation: “Nothing in the Constitution has given them [the federal judges] a right to decide for the Executive, more than to the Executive to decide for them. . . .” (Letter to Abigail Adams regarding Marbury v. Madison, September 11, 1804) “The great object of my fear is the Federal Judiciary. That body, . . . is engulfing insidiously the special governments into the jaws of that which feeds them.” (Letter to Judge Spencer Roane,1821)

“The original error [was in] establishing a judiciary independent of the nation, and which, from the citadel of the law, can turn its guns on those they were meant to defend, and control and fashion their proceedings to its own will.” (Letter to John Wayles Eppes, 1807) “You seem . . . to consider the judges as the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions; a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one which would place us under the despotism of an oligarchy. . . . The Constitution has erected no such single tribunal, knowing that to whatever hands confided, with corruptions of time and party, its members would become despots.” (Letter to William Jarvis, Sept. 28, 1820) JeffersonOnJudicialTyranny

Note: “Good Behaviour.” is intentionally spelled with the British spelling because that’s how it’s spelled in the Constitution.

Putting an End to the Left/Neo-Cons

Throughout my website, I advocate to quit cooperating. Now that the Left/Neo-Cons have clearly revealed that they own the media, let’s quit cooperating. Pull the plug on cable television and quit watching over the air television. What this’ll do is clean up the Cultural Marxism drive. We don’t need it!
If the networks can’t make money because we quit watching, the advertisers lose out. Once everybody figures out that we will only watch civilized entertainment all will go better.
So let’s get with it folks. Quit shooting yourself in the foot by endorsing the Left/Neo-Con’s game. Quit cooperating! Also, use cash! They are tracking every move you make with your credit card and cell phone. And as long as we are using cash they cannot zero your money supply.

And another thought

George Soros’s protesters -> Don’t let yourself be pulled in, paid protesters are not real riots. You can just ignore them. The last thing we want is a Civil war started by Paid protesters again!

Remember Who “THEY” Are!

They, at the highest level, are the people running the world. They, at the lower levels, are the people facilitating the world. The latter have no idea They are facilitating someone else’s agenda. THEY are you. “We the People” are bringing about our own demise!
THEY (at the highest level) taught us that we evolved and we die.
No! No! No! Our souls/spirits are eternal. We are here having a human experience. This deception and Their Banking system enables them to control us. But we are waking up!

The State of our Culture because of Education

by Jon Rappoport

January 6, 2017

These days, I’m coming across a phenomenon I call The Disconnected Mind more frequently.

In its most extreme form, it goes this way. I write a piece on the American Republic, and someone sends me an email that begins: “Yes, limited government is the foundation of the Republic. The oil spill is on the news all the time. I live in Michigan. I wish I had a dog. The government can’t afford to fix the potholes…”

What? Excuse me? Time out!

There are other forms of The Disconnected Mind. The most pervasive type stems from high school and college education. The student steps out into the world and quickly realizes he doesn’t have a clue about the way things work. All that education, and it seems to vanish behind him like vapor.

In this shaky situation, a young person gropes around for something to cling to. He encounters all sorts of quasi-philosophy and political propaganda—delivered by people who appear quite sure of themselves.

How does a newly minted adult assemble his attitude toward his own future? How does he fend off propaganda?

He’s missing one great asset. He can’t analyze information and separate the wheat from the chaff.

He thought he could back in school, but that turned out to be an illusion.

He’s paralyzed.

Part of the fault can be laid at the door of political correctness. The material he dealt with in school was sanitized and scrubbed. Any sentence that might have remotely offended some group was eliminated from text books.

He was operating in a pleasant abstract vacuum and he didn’t really know it. Now he pays the price.

It turns out that information comes in all shapes and sizes. Some of it drifts in on the breeze and some of it is launched from propaganda guns at high velocity.

A lot of it is disjointed. It contains holes that reflect the state of mind of the author. No one can really make sense out of it, because it wasn’t written to make sense. It was written to persuade.

In the end, most people surrender. They stagger under a particular umbrella of information, and they stop thinking. They consider themselves lucky because they’ve gotten out of the rain.

In retrospect, their prized education was almost worthless. It was, at best, a huge waste of time.

All in all, I would say the most egregious problem people have with information is this: they can’t follow a train of thought. They can’t see there is “connective tissue” between several sequential ideas. They believe it’s all right to plug into an article at any point and see if they agree with what’s being said.

To grasp this state of affairs, imagine a person who gets on a train while it’s moving. He isn’t aware that the train started somewhere, will make certain stops, and end up at a terminal destination. He just jumps on.

The consequence? He winds up at a place he didn’t intend to. He comes to believe this is the journey of life. You arrive at a place and you get used to it. Other people say it’s a good place, so you buy into that.

There is another way.

It starts with a thorough course in logic. The student learns he can analyze information and see the flaws. He can dig into the logic and illogic of an argument its author is trying to make. He can follow a train of thought—or if there isn’t one, he can recognize its absence.

He’s strong. He doesn’t wilt in front of propaganda and PR.

A long time ago, our society lost its moorings. It’s now floating on open water, and it’s being invaded by polemic. Polemic is argument whose total intent is to convince the audience to agree to something. It doesn’t matter how. Quite often, the strategy involves stimulating fear. Fear sells. It stirs people up. It makes them buy an idea they’d never entertain under normal circumstances.

Logic is polemic protection. It’s a type of insurance policy that yields long-term benefits. Logic confers immunity from intimidation tactics and intentionally garbled reasoning.

It also delivers immunity from the cult of personality, where the charisma of the speaker puts people in a trance. (When I was a child, Senator Hubert Humphrey spoke in our town. My parents took me to see him. Those were the days when Hubert was at the top of his game. He lectured for close to two hours, and I was on the edge of my seat the whole time. The man was a spellbinder. I walked out of there agreeing with everything he said, and, curiously, I remembered very little of what he said.)

Education can produce strong, independent, and courageous minds. A thorough grounding in logic is essential to arriving at that place.

Common Core – what it is used for!

Common Core – the American application of the more notorious communist (collectivist!) practice of diagnosing dissenters who speak-out for Liberty as mentally ill. Their treatment being confinement to mental hospitals for active immersion in efforts to brainwash/deconstruct/reconstruct/indoctrinate them “back to health and sanity!” In the USSR, it was called, “The Gulag.”

In a nationwide expansion of this diabolical practice in America, the technocrats and classic collectivists have designated all children—especially those raised by Liberty-Loving Parents (AKA: most-often, Christians)—as mentally ill from conception to adulthood, thus requiring active intervention by government and its Fellow-Travelers to purge the principles of Liberty and shackle them with the bands and chains of evil that we call collectivism!

The goal being for public schools and all “educational” facilities to become outpatient annexes for “treating” and “curing” all American Children of the disease called, “American Liberty!”
