Deliberate Suppression Of D'Souza's 'America'

It will be interesting to see how Costco and Google spin this, but immediately available facts seem to indicate deliberate attempts to suppress access to D’Souza’s book and movie “America: Imagine The World Without Her.” Regardless of what you think of D’Souza and his book or movie, the public should be aware of this type of manipulation.

Never Give Up Your Guns

This post is a repost of a repost - A Russian’s warning to America concerning our right to bear arms; be-warned that the originator(s) of the article are no friends of America, but the warning is still valid, we must never give up our fundamental right of gun ownership.

Downfall Of The Dollar

There are numerous worldwide efforts to dislodge the American dollar as the reserve currency of ‘choice’;

Tyler Durden writing for Zero Hedge examines how the “BRICs” (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) are uniting into an anti-dollar alliance.

Qu Hongbin writing for HSBC Global Connections discusses the Renminbi (official currency of the People’s Republic of China) as the world’s next reserve currency.

The Obama Doctrine

Jeffrey Anderson of The Weekly Standard discusses what he calls the “Obama Doctrine:”

"the Obama Doctrine — namely, that if Congress refuses to pass a political loser that Obama is championing, Obama will take the law into his own hands."

This type of un-constitutional leadership should cause every American great grief.

Japan Undermines Key Constitutional Article

I post this, not because Japan represents any threat to the United States, but it reflects the incredibly dramatic and historic Constitutional changes taking place in other parts of the world that most Americans are not aware of. Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s cabinet has made a decision which effectively undermines their own Constitutional Article 9 which prevented Japan’s involvement in international conflicts. I don’t blame Japan for seeking to establish a stronger self-defense position, but I think few people believed a change of this magnitude would ever be made.

Gun Homicides Dramatically Down

I don’t want to minimize senseless mass-shootings, but Americans need to be aware of the fact that gun homicides (and many other violent crimes) are down dramatically; this is another case where the media generally shapes the perception of the populous.

DHS as Americas Standing Army

John W. Whitehead of The Rutherford Institute writes on the growing threat of the Department Of Homeland Security (DHS) becoming what is essentially America’s standing army.

There were, and are, very good reasons why our founding fathers put a clause (ARTICLE I, SECTION 8, CLAUSE 12) in our Constitution to prevent such abuse from occurring; for a good summary please read this write-up on the “Army Clause” from Heritage.org.

Chase Bank Surveys Employees LGBT Loyalty

Breitbart reports that a second employee of Chase Bank has come forward alleging that the bank required employees to fill out a non-anonymous survey which included a question concerning their support of the LGBT community.
Followers of Christ need to be prepared to reject this type of offensive; and should the court(s) rule that this type of survey is within the rights of employer, we should be prepared to stand on our faith and cling to the truth.

GDP Shrinks Most In 5 Years

The Wall Street Journal reports that the Gross Domestic Product contacted 2.9% in the first quarter (the most in five years) and represents what they claim is:

"...the largest drop recorded since the end of World War II that wasn't part of a recession."

The decline in GDP stands in stark contrast to the DOW closing at an all time high of above 17,000. Many feel that stocks are largely overvalued and, to me, it feels as though we are on the precipice of a very large correction. Paul B. Farrell, writing for the Market Watch (of The Wall Street Journal), praises the current bull market in his commentary “The Great Obama Bull Market will roar till 2016”.

Mr. Farrell realizes that while these market conditions provide reason to “celebrate,” they are unlikely to last much longer. Farrell references a recent article by Jeremy Grantham, whom he refers to as “one of America’s more accurate market forecasters.” Grantham also predicts that this bull market will likely continue until sometime around the 2016 election, at which time the market will likely undergo a very severe correction:

"Grantham’s wrap-up: “then around the election or soon after, the market bubble will burst, as bubbles always do, and will revert to its trend value, around half of its peak or worse, depending on what new ammunition the Fed can dig up.” Yes, Grantham is predicting a possible market collapse from a seven-year long bull market. Meanwhile, enjoy a couple more great years, and protect yourself for later."

Farrell continues:

"Today Wall Street stocks are climbing a wall of worry. A similar event happened in the 2002-2008 bull run. P/E ratios were so high in 2004 Wall Street panicked. The market ignored it, barely paused on its six-year bull run till its 14,164 peak in late 2007."

We all know what happened in 2008; we must not be blind to recent history. Aggressively eliminate all your personal debt and consider how you can prepare yourself financially for what is coming.

About

The concept for this site largely revolves around a quote taken from a letter written by Thomas Jefferson to Philip Mazzei in 1796:

"...all timid men who prefer the calm of despotism to the boisterous sea of liberty..."

In the letter, the ‘timid men’ Jefferson is referring to are government officials:

"the Executive, the Judiciary, two out of three branches of the legislature, all of the officers of the government, all who want to be officers..."

And though it may be taking Jefferson’s quote out of context, I find that his sentiment concerning ‘timid men’ has broad application in many areas of modern life. Our current liberties and freedoms are being challenged on all sides by despots; each individual must choose for themselves whether they will submit to this despotism for the sake of calm, or stand firm and endure the boisterous sea of liberty.

Most battles are fought and lost in populus’ mind long before the physical realities of the loss, if any, are fully realized. This site is dedicated to examining the fight for our minds which is taking place right now, as our religious, intellectual, individual, economic, political and national freedoms are being eroded.
