Everything you thought....

you knew was wrong case # 348,882.

Tom Woods and Damon Root show (again) how the things you were shown is school are simply incorrect. It would be smart to show up to 'class' in September realizing that much of what you are being shown is either half true, or pure propaganda. This topic deals with FDR "saving" the economy by instituting the New Deal. This is completely false. FDR not only did an unconstitutional gold grab, he continued the Great Depression with the New Deal policies. The record is clear - if you do your own research and find credible sources, NOT the ones in the textbook.

Current Day Economics

This post will be obsolete in terms of current events in about 2 weeks. It has eternal relevancy because the economics discussed by P. Schiff are for all time. He cuts through the nonsense and instructs the (oddly simpleminded for RT) hostess about the economics. This is a great way to understand the issues / economics of today and not get distracted by the presstitutes in the MSM who are self aggrandizing boobs.

Recommended reading: Crash Proof 2.0 by Peter Schiff / How and Economy Grows and Why it Crashes by P. Schiff and Andrew Schiff.

Ron Paul to Congress: If Debt Is the Problem, Why Do You Want More of It?

You may have been hearing a lot about the "debt ceiling" and the issues surrounding it. It is pure theater. Washington DC is so far gone you should watch it with the same mindset you'd watch 'Glee'. National politics has become something of a soap opera. Hopefully you'll realize a few things:
1 - The Republican v. Democrat battle is pure nonsense.
2 - The Establishment believes that you have the intelligence of a deformed cockroach.
3 - 97% of congress doesn't "care" about you or any of your opinions.
4 - Congress is run by the big banks.
5 - Campaign contributions would be called bribes if we were honest about it.
6 - The biggest campaign donors get what they want from Congress (see #4).

There are a few exceptions to these points. Justin Amash, Rand Paul, Ron Paul and Mike Lee are the only names I can come up with without looking at the list, but there aren't too many other congressmembers based in reality.

The National Debt is a whopping 14.3 trillion dollars. The US Gov't has put a 'cap' on the amount it spends, this is the 'debt ceiling'. Because the federal gov't wants more warfare, more welfare, and more wasted money, they need to 'raise the ceiling'. This would be like you having 14 thousand dollars in Visa debt, and using your MasterCard to pay it off. The worst part of all of this is that there are people correctly saying that debt is a problem, but we should raise the ceiling. What?

Rep. Ron Paul correctly calls them out on this joke of a position. I can think of the moment in 'A Few Good Men' when Lt. Caffey asks "if Santiago wasn't in any danger - why did he have to be moved off the base?" I guess we've reached the "Pfc. Santiago" moment in the debate. Naturally only Ron Paul has what it takes to call our Federal Gov't out for the worldwide joke that it has become.

Rupert Murdoch's Failing Attempts to Control the Internet Reformation by Anthony Wile

Rupert Murdoch's Failing Attempts to Control the Internet Reformation by Anthony Wile

This is a useful article looking at the role and influence of the media. What happened to MySpace? Why do the Power Elite hate the www? Well written and thoughtful - doesn't purport to have all of the answers but uses some historical trends to try to map out and guess what will happen next in these trying times.

The Same Message - Different Source

I have often spoken to many of my students about independent thinking.  The 'thought journey' that I've been on for the past 15 years is starting to come full circle.  What I mean is that the more I read / learn / watch / listen to the non mainstream sources of intelligent ideas, the more commonalities I find.  This German economist is talking about gold and economics, but after about 6 minutes he talks about the education of the German youth.  It is fascinating that in a country where the education of its' children is vastly more rigorous than ours, they still don't learn about economics.  The key point made here that caught my attention and made me want to share is the fact that he asks rhetorically about who would have an interest in keeping the young people of Germany economically ignorant.

This has been one of the tenets of my last few years as a teacher.  There are people who like to control others, and they realize that it is easier to control YOU if you are unaware of the world around you.  Our education system was libertarian and free (and very good) until the late 1800's.  Then the public school system was spectacular so that had to be disemboweled in the late 1960's.  Unfortunately, some of these attributes have affected the German system as well, according to this man.  Watch the whole video to get more of an economic education, but pay particular attention past the 6 minute mark.  You'll be glad you did.

Is The Mainstream Media Covering Up the Truth at Los Alamos, Ft. Calhoun, and Fukushima?

Is The Mainstream Media Covering Up the Truth at Los Alamos, Ft. Calhoun, and Fukushima?

What in the world is really going on at Los Alamos, Ft. Calhoun and Fukushima? There are millions of Americans that would like the truth about what is happening at these nuclear facilities, but the mainstream media has been strangely quiet. Instead, the mainstream media is running headlines such as "10 Dirtiest U.S. Beaches Named" and "Pole Dance Stops Times Square Cold". Yes, those are actually headlines that appeared on the front pages of major mainstream news websites in the United States today. Sadly, you really have to dig to find anything about the problems that are currently happening at nuclear facilities in the United States, and the mainstream media seems to have gotten really tired of talking about Fukushima. It is almost as if the mainstream media actually prefers to talk about mindless things rather than focus on the truly important events that are happening all around us.
