If the truth is what sets us free, what does it mean to live in a society where truth is absent?
The danger to America is not a single politician with ill intent. Or even a group of them. The most dangerous thing any nation faces is a citizenry capable of trusting a liar to lead them.
“Almost all current events in the affairs of governments and nations have their parallels and precedents in the past,” American President Harry Truman wrote, “without an understanding of history, we are doomed to repeat our collective past.” Has any leader’s lies from the past dramatically shaped people’s destiny?
The Nazi’s, who comprised less than 10% of the German population, compelled millions of people to head for gas chambers in a docile manner. 10 MILLION PEOPLE! How did they do THAT? The Nazis were overwhelmingly outnumbered. They could easily have been overpowered. Why didn’t people resist?
The answer is breathtakingly simple. It is a method still being used by some elected leaders to achieve various goals today.
Adolf Eichmann, known as “The Master”, set about implementing the “Final Solution” as if he were the president of a multinational corporation. His intricate stories, were designed to ensure the cooperation of the condemned (but unknowing) Jews. Accompanied by an entourage of no more than thirty local men — mostly unarmed -Eichmann would address the crowd in a strong, clear voice.
This is what he said:
“Jews: At last, it can be reported to you that the Russians are advancing on our eastern front. I apologize for the hasty way we brought you into our protection. Unfortunately, there was little time to explain. You have nothing to worry about. We want only the best for you. You will leave here shortly and be sent to very fine places indeed. You will work there, your wives will stay at home, and your children will go to school. You will have wonderful lives. We will all be terrible crowded on the trains, but the journey is short. Men? Please keep your families together and board the railcars in an orderly manner. Quickly now, my friends, we must hurry!”
The Jewish husbands and fathers were relieved by the explanation and comforted by the fact that there weren’t more armed soldiers. Fear of “heinous Russian Communists” had been pounded over the media to the masses for months. Relieved that the authorities were looking out for their best interests, grown, strong men, who could have resisted, instead trustingly helped their families into the rail cars. The containers, designed to transport eight cows, were each packed with a minimum of one hundred human beings and quickly padlocked.
At that moment, they were lost.
“If a nation expects to be ignorant and free,” said Thomas Jefferson, “. . . . The people cannot be safe without information. Where the press is free, and every man able to read, all is safe.”
History shows that any people who are sheep-like in following their leadership (so long as their personal self-interests are satisfied) may one day awaken to find that their nation has changed in dramatic ways.
-Do YOU think lying to get elected is acceptable? Especially when you believe the candidate’s intention is to get elected to do GOOD WORKS?
-Who are the “good guys” and who are the “bad guys”?
-Would truth be a starting point for telling the difference?
-What is our nation’s course? Do you believe that one can determine a probable destination by examining the direction in which we are traveling? Where are we headed?
The only way to know a person who aspires to lead us is to listen to what he says and watch what he does. Frankly, what I think of any current or past leader of the United States is irrelevant. The questions most important to YOU in regard to this subject should be: What criteria do YOU use?
It doesn’t take MANY people to lead a nation in a direction that has serious repercussions on the liberty of OTHERS. Indeed, it has happened, here, in the United States. We have given up liberties for various reasons. WE MAY NEVER GET THEM BACK. And, things could turn even WORSE very rapidly.
Is SOMEONE lying to our country right now?
YOU get to answer that for yourself. My point is that each of us must STOP blindly believing everything someone with an agenda says.
TODAY WITH THE ADVENT OF THE INTERNET’S SEARCH ENGINES, it is simple to verify a politicians voting record, see videos of the politician on youtube to check out the politician’s consistency and whether or not he or she keeps his or her promises.
We MUST do our best to change our country’s direction and to put the best people possible in office. People who will DO what they believe is RIGHT and TRUE.
Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Being willing is not enough; we MUST DO. ~Leonardo DeVinci
Your life, the lives of your children and the lives of your grandchildren may depend upon you demanding THE TRUTH and NOTHING LESS.

Time is running short. Get Your money and savings out of your bank! NOW! All legal bank and deposit protections are officially GONE.
Former money manager Ann Barnhardt, who, after the MF Global theft, honorably shut down her brokerage firm; so that, her customers would not be ripped off, is giving a new warning about the stability of US banks and the safety of individual deposit accounts. Legal rulings are siding against the people and for the banks; thus, get your money out and get it out now. This is because the market is destroyed and you no longer have any protection for any money invested in any investment, or banking, system anymore, according to Barnhardt.
For example: In a shocking precedent set by the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals’ decision last Friday the court ruled that Sentinel’s use of $500 million segregated client funds to secure a loan from the Bank of NY Melon for it’s prop trading desk is not fraudulent but is rather perfectly legal.
‘What we’re seeing is the complete disintegration of the financial system before our very eyes! It’s Soviet!‘”, says Barnhardt, ‘You have got to get your money out of the financial system! Not just the futures markets, but the entire thing! Stocks, 401k, IRA. GET YOUR MONEY OUT OR ELSE IT IS ALL GOING TO BE STOLEN FROM YOU! IT’S ALL A PONZI!!!
“I don’t know what else people need. MF Global stole $1.6 billion, PFG Best is $225 million gone, who’s going to be next? It’s clear there’s no regulatory oversight. If you’re still in these markets you’re either stupid or on drugs! That’s the only conclusion that I can come to.”
CLICK HERE for the Sentinel Federal Appeals Court Ruling of August 9, 2012. The entire case reads like an after-the-fact rationalization of a predetermined conclusion.
Please pay particular attention to the section on equitable subordination, on pages 6 through 8. Unbelievably, the court acknowledged in that section that even though some of the bankers lied under oath during the trial, that fact did not prove “sufficiently egregious” actions on the part of the bank.
I will quote the opinion: “Instead of finding that their testimony [i.e. their lies] justified a finding of egregious bank behavior, the district court essentially found that the bank officials were such artless liars that they couldn’t have been concealing deliberate wrongdoing.” See page 7, column 2.
So in other words, a U.S. Court of Appeals has found that if a banker lies under oath during a trial, that fact proves that the bank was innocent of any misconduct with respect to the subject matter of those lies.

It has been too long since I’ve penned a cartoon, but commercial art has kept me busy and I must pay the bills. I’ve had the couch potato idea lodged in my brain for a while and it’s time it came out. I don’t want to castigate my fellow Americans too much because many are starting to wake up to the fact that a police state IS being slowly put into place. Recent developments such as the TSA and NDAA prove it. Next we will face armed spy drones.
Ten years ago few Americans knew what the Federal Reserve was or what they did. The Fed wanted to keep it that way. Today many know it’s a ruse by elite private bankers to enslave us with their debt money while enriching and empowering themselves. They and the globalists have hijacked our country. A few years ago you’d get laughed at…

I’m no lawyer, but I don’t need to be to tell you what is coming in the near future. Predicting the events of the near future is easy: all you have to do is read history to see and understand what is happening now. That will also tell you what is about to happen next. The truly hard part is accepting the reality that America is dead and the world is entering the early stages of a long, dark, evil period in the history of man – a period there is little chance mankind will ever escape unless we stand and fight now.
The Supreme Court ruled that the mandate is unconstitutional because it exceeds the scope of the Commerce Clause. The Court then upheld the whole law by saying the mandate is actually a tax and that the Constitution does grant the power to tax a non-action. So let’s…
