Although the women of the United States are confined within the narrow circle of domestic life, and their situation is, in some respects, one of extreme dependence, I have nowhere seen woman occupying a loftier position; and if I were asked... in which I have spoken of so many important things done by Americans, to what the singular prosperity and growing strength of that people ought mainly to be attributed, I should reply, To the superiority of their women.

--Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

Get Konnected - Parody Video

Came across this on the Daily Paul - a very funny satire on how the world really works.



For anyone confused as to the basis of these jokes, once again check out this corresponding John Perkins cartoon offering a candid explanation on how multinationals use their influence to remake the world in their image:

One Soldier's Testimony

I encourage everyone to read the incredibly moving, frank, and powerful piece written by this veteran and shared with his fellow Daily Paulers:

I enlisted in the U.S. Air Force in September of 2000, at the age of 19. Two weeks shy of my 1 year anniversary, 9/11 happened. I spent the next two weeks keeping F-15 fighters fueled up in case they needed to respond quickly over the skies of Seattle. Then I was deployed to Spain for 3 months to fuel tankers that would go up and fuel the bombers that were flying from the U.S. nonstop to pummel Afghanistan. Another 6 months after being back at my home base, I asked for and received a 3 year tour to England, which required me to add 10 months onto my 4 year enlistment.
When the U.S. built up in preparation for an invasion of Iraq in early 2003, I was shipped off to an Air Base in Kuwait. It was an incredible feat of logistics watching the base build up from nothing to upwards of two hundred fighter planes and all the support that it required. I remember people writing things on bombs to be dropped, things about how this was payback to Iraq for 9/11. Once the attack on Iraq commenced, It was extremely busy for about 2 weeks, and then the "shock and awe" was over. It was on the ground troops (for the next 9 years) after that. I volunteered to drive a fuel truck up to a captured Air Base in Iraq, but I wasn't needed for that.
I remember at one point when I was out working, thinking about my principal in elementary school. After standing up to a bully once, he told me that violence was never the answer. I looked around at all the high tech machinery of death, and I started laughing hysterically to myself. Look around I thought. Sometimes violence is the answer. At the time, I had been very heavily indoctrinated with tribalism. Obviously those faceless unknown Iraqis were somehow of less value, and I believed in the lie that such a thing as a "surgical strike" existed.
I never contemplated the notion of human error, or that a child would only need to be in the vicinity of dropped ordinances to be traumatized for life. Thinking about such things in my immature mind would be unpleasant, logic was an inconvenience, no need for any of that.

Read the rest here. - you'll be glad you did!

Merry Christmas

I hope everyone has a great day recalling what today is really all about--the Lord Jesus Christ!

Before I started my research into "why things are the way they are", I understood that the Blood of Jesus saved me from my sin like the blood at Passover saved the Hebrew children. I understood that the world was doomed on an intellectual level, but I didn't understand the minutia of how the principalities of darkness were actually operating.

Often, we Christians talk about the spirit of evil, or the "devil" in such generic terms that it seems more like an esoteric concept than a reality. Since I've been researching what is really going on, the importance of Jesus' sacrifice takes on a whole other dimension. Lucifer and his minions can seem like fairy tale villains or a quick excuse for when you mess up. Seeing the involvement with the occult and subsequent vileness unleashed by means of careful, multi-generational social planning, I understand on another level why Planet Earth needs a Savior. What a comfort knowing that God has everything under control; He has a plan to thwart all the confusion and chaos those pesky principlalites of darkness are throwing into the world.

Christmas is a reminder of a Sovereign Savior who is most surely coming again. That is the primary reason that the worldly forces attack it with such rancor. But the root of Jesse is in too deep for these reprobate spirits to pull it out. Praise God, He has opened the door for for us to escape.

A Day That Will Live in Infamy - 100 Years of Vampire Squid

The average American still cannot tell you what the Federal Reserve is, how it came to being, or how it is destroying our country today. Over at the Economic Collapse blog, Michael Snyder has put together 100 facts about the Federal Reserve, one for each year it has robbed the United States of its wealth. I found numbers 32 and 33 most interesting:

#32 According to an official government report, the Federal Reserve made 16.1 trillion dollars in secret loans to the big banks during the last financial crisis.  The following is a list of loan recipients that was taken directly from page 131 of the report…

Citigroup – $2.513 trillion
Morgan Stanley – $2.041 trillion
Merrill Lynch – $1.949 trillion

Bank of America – $1.344 trillion
Barclays PLC – $868 billion
Bear Sterns – $853 billion
Goldman Sachs – $814 billion
Royal Bank of Scotland – $541 billion
JP Morgan Chase – $391 billion
Deutsche Bank – $354 billion
UBS – $287 billion
Credit Suisse – $262 billion
Lehman Brothers – $183 billion
Bank of Scotland – $181 billion
BNP Paribas – $175 billion
Wells Fargo – $159 billion
Dexia – $159 billion
Wachovia – $142 billion
Dresdner Bank – $135 billion
Societe Generale – $124 billion
“All Other Borrowers” – $2.639 trillion
#33 The Federal Reserve also paid those big banks $659.4 million in “fees” to help “administer” those secret loans.

To put that information in proper context, check out G. Edward Griffin, the most well-respected researcher of the Federal Reserve breaking down how the Fed is a cartel:

How about we listen to a "genius" like Thomas Edison's opinion. I hear he was good at math:
That is to say, under the old way any time we wish to add to the national wealth we are compelled to add to the national debt.
Now, that is what Henry Ford wants to prevent. He thinks it is stupid, and so do I, that for the loan of $30,000,000 of their own money the people of the United States should be compelled to pay $66,000,000 — that is what it amounts to, with interest. People who will not turn a shovelful of dirt nor contribute a pound of material will collect more money from the United States than will the people who supply the material and do the work. That is the terrible thing about interest. In all our great bond issues the interest is always greater than the principal. All of the great public works cost more than twice the actual cost, on that account. Under the present system of doing business we simply add 120 to 150 per cent, to the stated cost.
But here is the point: If our nation can issue a dollar bond, it can issue a dollar bill. The element that makes the bond good makes the bill good.

Moving back further in time:
I too have been a close observer of the doings of the Bank of the United States. I have had men watching you for a long time, and am convinced that you have used the funds of the bank to speculate in the breadstuffs of the country. When you won, you divided the profits amongst you, and when you lost, you charged it to the Bank. You tell me that if I take the deposits from the Bank and annul its charter I shall ruin ten thousand families. That may be true, gentlemen, but that is your sin! Should I let you go on, you will ruin fifty thousand families, and that would be my sin! You are a den of vipers and thieves. I have determined to rout you out and, by the Eternal, (bringing his fist down on the table) I will rout you out.
  ---Andrew Jackson, February 1834
 I keep this quote on the bottom of the blog because it is so astute:

"The Federal Reserve Bank of New York is eager to enter into close relationship with the Bank for International Settlements.... The conclusion is impossible to escape that the State and Treasury Departments are willing to pool the banking system of Europe and America, setting up a world financial power independent of and above the Government of the United States.... The United States under present conditions will be transformed from the most active of manufacturing nations into a consuming and importing nation with a balance of trade against it."-- Rep Louis McFadden, quoted in the New York Times, June 1930


Article I, Section 8, clause 4:

The Congress shall have power to coin Money, regulate the Value thereof, and of foreign Coin, and fix the Standard of Weights and Measures.




Do Justin Amash and Louis McFadden look similar to anyone else?
