Free Speech in these United States of America

Many Americans do not realize the extent to which the First Amendment, especially free speech, has been under attack.

It is clear, according to the First Amendment, that free speech cannot be abridged.  Period.  Yet, it gets done constantly.

Political Correctness has been strangling Free Speech for many years.  The same can be said about Free Speech Zones, places designated where people may freely voice their opinions.

Sorry, the United States, in total, is a Free Speech Zone!

However, there are many people and places undermining our right in this area. Take, for instance, institutions of higher learning.

First AmendmentThree years ago, the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) reported that 59% of American colleges and universities have policies in place that impede First Amendment rights.  Another 35% have “policies that overregulate speech on campus.”

That is a total of 94% of our colleges and universities practicing, in one form or another, oppression of one’s right to speak freely, here is these United States.

Every American needs to be aware of all of our rights, as specifically laid out in the U.S. Constitution, the Bill of Rights and other Amendments.

Having various rights and freedoms infringed upon was a primary motivation, along with the subject not really being taught in school any more, for the production of the movie In Search of Liberty, an educational film, that is also highly entertaining, designed to enlighten young and old alike about our basic rights and freedoms.

In the movie, a captivating statesman from America’s past takes a modern-day family on a series of wild adventures.  With a spicy mix of humor, magic and logic, he opens their eyes to the origins and importance of the U.S. Constitution, the degree to which it is under attack today and what can and must be done to save it.

And, make no mistake, it must be saved.

In Search of LibertyThere are those on the left who are constantly working to either undermine or totally ignore that priceless document that our Founding Fathers worked so hard to put together.  And, if you are not aware of all of your rights, you do not know when they are being taken away.

As Thomas Jefferson said, “Educate and inform the whole mass of the people… They are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our liberty.” Another Founding Father, John Adams, echoed those words when he said, “Liberty cannot be preserved without general knowledge among the people.”

Know your rights!

Keep your rights!

Political Secrets – Is This How We Track Corruption?

Know that Corruption cannot survive if the light of day is shone upon it.

Not too long ago we had an abomination of a big BIG OMNIBUS BILL that was passed by a Republican Congress in a way where it was impossible for them to even have time to READ THE BILL.  And, yes, hello, of course, this bill, like many big omnibus bills before it, was riddled with many irrelevant DIRTY SECRETS. Unless “we the people speak up loud and clear” we can expect more legislation without representation like this bill.

monkeys1

 

In the bill which was not written by any congressman, but rather by accountants, lobbyists and lawyers, Dark Money Groups were again given protection to withhold (legislation without representation) the names of their contributors. The S.E.C ‘s effort to create rules to force groups and corporations to disclose their campaign contributors was effectively blocked. This is an unethical, and ugly move to keep the public blindfolded about who is writing the BIG CHECKS.

Note: Since the Citizens United decision in January 2010, politicians have collected more than $500 MILLION in dark money from phantom donors according to the Center for Responsive Politics,

A Historical Perspective

Two things drive change: the ideas of man and new technological breakthroughs.

In living memory, there have been three civilizing waves: the Agricultural, the Industrial and now the Digital-Electronic Wave. The changes we now experience are fast and furious and are akin to a gigantic wave that is descending on us. It is because of this that we need new leaders, men of vision who can help us to see where we are going. It is in times like this that we need a simple formula to sort it all out. There is such a formula and it is this:

EVIL SURVIVES IN SECRECY, CORRUPTION CANNOT THRIVE WHEN THE LIGHT OF DAY IS SHONE ON IT.

It takes men of courage to stand firm and hold a true course as we let go of the old corrupt order, especially when hard on their pockets. It is such men of courage though that we need to seek out and vote for in the next election.

Imagine a powerful sea, with large waves, breaking. The force of each new wave is met by the force of the prior wave receding. At the place where the two waves meet, their force is broken into a thousand swirling eddies. Is this not what our society is experiencing right now?.

It is not the first time two powerful civilizing waves have met and wreaked havoc on society. It was the force of the Industrial Revolution that undid the old agricultural order of Kings and the Aristocrats. The difference was that in those days it was easy to see the unfair advantage and inevitable that justice and fair play would eventually go in. The world was smaller but even then the changes brought by the new industrial wave fighting an entrenched corrupt agricultural order wreaked havoc on the world. The French Revolution was ugly.

As the Industrial wave now meets the Digital Wave, the conflict is both bigger and more subtle. This is because in the industrial order it is easy for bad men to hide because of the split between the consumer and the producer. Those taking advantage have learned to steal from both producer and consumer and they have perfected the art of hiding in the middle. When men do not act to serve the greatest good, their activities MUST be conducted in SECRECY.

Those who have bad secrets are running scared and we can know them by their efforts to hide their acts and to curb transparency.

As the corrupt industrial and financial model crumbles, it is actually possible to replace the corrupt industrial order with a better culture, maybe even a golden age. This may be hard to see as the water swirls around us and the banking and corporate and military and political powers fight to maintain what has become an unfair privilege.

What it is going to take, though, is the willingness to refresh our lives, to let go of the old and to embrace the new.

Of vital importance is also to protect the freedom of the Internet. Do not vote for any political candidate who in any even small way, chooses to suppress information on the Internet or threaten the integrity of this channel. The net is our salvation. These are questions for the candidates in the last two debate.

For I want you to know that the Industrial Order could well be replaced by something far worse than what we now have, the signs of decline are out there. What we are doing is riding the digital wave on the cusp, and it is almost ready to tip over. We can ride and command this new electronic wave, keep it free and use it to create a far better system – or we can let it crash and engulf us.

We can fail to take action, fail to elect the right new leaders and we can let the electronics that drives this new wave to be used by the entrenched establishment to undo our working system of government in the USA and replace it with one driven by ugly secrets and dark money.

How do we fight back?

It all begins and ends with a STRONG AND COLLECTIVE demand for TRANSPARENCY.

This is not something not a one of us should get reasonable about.

The truth is that we dare not fail to bring in positive reform, for if we do how will our world look?

  • The elites will continue to enjoy more and more opulence. There will be scarcity by design – all in our best interests, of course.
  • In a new super-regulated society we will find a high ratio of cops (AKA Security Officers) to every working man. They are there to protect us, of course.
  • We will begin to pay a Local Tax, a City Tax, a State Tax, a National Tax, a Federal Tax and a World Tax. This new tax is going to be introduced gradually but it will grow and grow. There will be no representation, of course.
  • The idle rich and the idle poor, both parasitic on society, will continue to collaborate to steal the fruits of the labor of the producers. There will be no fair exchange with producers of course.
  • There will be the appearance of democracy but the election process will be manipulated. There will be no freedom of course.
  • The elites will be there by divine right and it will behoove us to support them, of course.
  • The one percent rich will grow richer and the ninety-nine percent will grow poorer of course.

House of Cards Come Tumbling Down?

Our country is mostly, almost 100% represented by two parties, Republican and Democratic. Each has lost their real substance of what they really stood for and represented in years past.

And here we are today less than eleven months away from electing a new president to represent us the people, and this great country.

So what concerns me and should definitely concern you, and I’m sure a lot of you are concerned, is this:

Why is it very few presidential candidates running in their selective primaries – Clinton and Sanders from the progressive socialistic Democratic party and Trump, Cruz, Rubio, Carson, Bush, Christie, Kasich, Paul and a few others from the Republican establishment party and nonestablishment Republican party rarely mention governing by the Constitution. I’ve heard it from Cruz, Rubio, Carson but that’s it. And even with those guys not nearly enough. Never have I even heard a whisper from the lips of Sanders and Clinton, the word Constitution.

Maybe I have but in a twisted socialistic way.

Does that not warrant some concern? Well, it most certainly does for me and is one of the main reasons why I am doing a film on the US Constitution “In Search Of Liberty”.

In our movie one of our main characters, who has been asleep at the wheel or maybe even worse, in an amnesic hypnotic state as it concerns, his life, his families life, and the idea of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, begins to wake up. Like the character Jim Carey played in the movie “The Truman Show,” his boat had to run into that fake wall.

The national debt surpassed $18 trillion. That’s $124,000 for each American household or $56,378 per individual.

Over 200 trillion in unfunded liabilities (all future entitlement debt), about 95 million no longer in the workforce yet we are to believe the unemployment rate just this week reported and stated by the president to be 4.9% (an untruthful reality of the employment scene), more people on government assistance ever, our military is being reduced in face of radical Islamic aggressiveness worldwide, China aggressively expanding its territorial occupation, Iran leaders spouting death to America and just the other day North Korea launching and testing a long-range ballistic missile that some day can carry a nuclear warhead able to reach the west coast of the US. Is all this nuts or what? Be I and a few others the only ones who think we got a serious problem here.

How strong is our House? – Let’s carry on.

Hillary and Bernie are spewing free this free that, grow this grow that while our debt rises about $171,000,000 a day, this is just unsustainable and burdens posterity. You can read specifics on the internet and for me to note it here specifically creates a puke moment so I will pass.

We have presidential candidates who want to move into the House (White House) who rather than sticking to the important issues are mudslinging to the presidential candidacy. Do we really care if Cruz birthed by an American citizen while in Canada is eligible to run for president? Of course he is legally eligible to run. If you know your Constitution there is no argument on that issue. Or that he took a mortgage against his house from JP Morgan or Chase, whomever, they’re one in the same, to fund his senatorial run. Or what Ben Carson did when he was 12 or so years old.

We as American citizens and our country have important issues to address and resolve now and we want all of these candidates to stay on point with specifics, without giving away our strategies to our enemies to defeat them. How are they going to address and handle these?

If we get the same kind of governing with our new 2017 president and houses (congress and senate) as we have in the past, the House Of Cards will fall and America will not recover, be recognized as a great nation and be the beacon of freedom and liberty around the world.

Russia and China will be the lighthouse – god forbid.

To save our House Of Cards from falling, we need a strong foundation. We need a leader in the oval office who takes his constitutional oath seriously, governs explicitly by our Constitution, FOR, BY AND OF THE PEOPLE.

And we need to educate the young and old, and In Search Of Liberty the Movie is an excellent way to start that trend.

Our Political Scene – A House of Horrors

Are you screaming at the top of your lungs at your TV when listening to some TV reporter or commentator interviewing one of our possible future Commander and Chief, or listening to the president’s last state of the union, or Obama praising Hillary Clinton “”(S)he’s extraordinarily experienced — and, you know, wicked smart and knows every policy inside and out — (and) sometimes (that) could make her more cautious, and her campaign more prose than poetry,” – pulling at your hair, slapping yourself silly so you can wake up from what you think is a nightmare.

 

Well maybe this excerpt from an article:

Doug Casey Shines a Light on the Sociopaths in Politics
by Doug Casey | January 29, 2016 —

 

may help us in sorting things out and in choosing who would be the best candidate to be commander and chief and guide us out of the

HOUSE OF HORRORS.

 

As a side note – In our movie In Search Of Liberty, one of our last scenes takes

place at a carnival, and a trip through the House Of Horrors.

 

“1. Sociopaths completely lack a conscience or any  capacity for real regret about hurting people.

Although they pretend the opposite.

2. Sociopaths put their own desires and wants on a totally different level from those of other people. Their wants are incommensurate. They truly believe their ends justify their means. Although they pretend the opposite.

3. Sociopaths consider themselves superior to everyone else because they aren’t burdened by the emotions and ethics others have – they’re above all that. They’re arrogant. Although they pretend the opposite.

4. Sociopaths never accept the slightest responsibility for anything that goes wrong, even though they’re responsible for almost everything that goes wrong. You’ll never hear a sincere apology from them.

5. Sociopaths have a lopsided notion of property rights. What’s theirs is theirs, and what’s yours is theirs too. They, therefore, defend currency inflation and taxation as good things.

6. Sociopaths usually pick the wrong target to attack. If they lose their wallet, they kick the dog. If 16 Saudis fly planes into buildings, they attack Afghanistan.

7. Sociopaths traffic in disturbing news, they love to pass on destructive rumors, and they’ll falsify information to damage others.

 

The fact that they’re chronic, extremely convincing, and even enthusiastic liars, who often believe their own lies, means they aren’t easy to spot, because normal people naturally assume another person is telling the truth. They rarely have handlebar mustaches or chortle like Snidely Whiplash. Instead, they cultivate a social veneer or a mask of sanity that diverts suspicion. You can rely on them to be “politically correct” in public. How could a congressman or senator who avidly supports charities possibly be a bad guy? How could someone who claims he just wants the U.S. to defend some foreign minority possibly be a warmonger? They’re expert at using facades to disguise reality, and they feel no guilt about it.”- Doug Casey

 

Well, I hope this settles your nerves a bit and helps in your choosing your next president.

 

I welcome any feedback.

Where the Hell is My Money!

Not to freak anybody out, but it would be prudent to read this article my friend wrote and sent to me about money.

After reading this article you have to say to yourself, how did we get here, what numskulls allowed our financial system to walk on mind fields.

And why are we so complacent in allowing the Federal Reserve, a privately held organization (company) guide our financial and economic system, which obviously after reading this article whether intentional or not is taking us down a very dark road.

We visualize this in an entertaining way – I know that is an oxymoron because there is nothing entertaining about our economic plight, but we will hold your interest when the truth of this unfolds in some of our scenes in our movie In Search Of Liberty.

So here is the article from my friend Bruce Wiseman:

“Like some quietly evolving financial virus,

the world of banking is changing before our very eyes.

Perhaps it has your attention. Perhaps not.

But there are steps you should take to stay ahead of this.

There are a number of factors at play here.

  1. Sovereign debt has soared to $200 trillion (Sovereign debt is the amount of borrowing by independent – sovereign – nations).
  1. Derivatives, casino like bets by banks and other financial institutions, has reached $1.2 Quadrillion.

Yes, that’s a Q.

  1. There is a major global effort to eliminate cash as a form of money and replace it with digital money – zeroes and ones.  

Sound impossible?

One example: Norway’s biggest bank has called for the elimination of cash.

http://www.ibtimes.com/norways-biggest-bank-calls-country-stop-using-cash-2276140

There is growing evidence of this agenda in the U.S. and internationally.

  1. We are in a deflationary environment (short def: more goods and services available than money available to buy them = prices go down). Interest rates have actually turned negative in Europe, and now in Japan.  

http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/markets/boj-introduces-negative-interest-rate-to-boost-economy/ar-BBoQqa2?ocid=ansmsnmoney11

And several knowledgeable sources have predicted they are coming here. I would agree. (Treasury bill[s] are currently paying 0%).

What are negative interest rates?

This means that you pay the bank or the government for holding your money. For example, a government entity issues a bond. Traditionally, the city, state or federal government would pay the investor who bought the bond an interest rate. Say, again just for example, 5%. You buy a $50,000 bond and the government pays you $2,500 per year in interest until the bond matures and they pay you the principal.

Or,

Previously, you would buy a CD at your bank that pays you say, 2%.

But now, in Europe and Japan, the bank or the government is charging you for the privilege of holding your funds. You buy the bond for $50,000. The government pays you no interest and when the bond matures, they give you $49,500.”

-Bruce Wiseman

 

So why are we screwing around with the Federal Reserve – let’s get back to our Constitution; Article I Section 8. – The Congress shall have Power To coin Money, regulate the Value thereof, and of foreign coin and fix the Standard of Weights and Measures. Case closed.

Mrs. Clinton, You Have Officially Crossed Over into The Twilight Zone!

 


Hillary Rotan, I mean Rodham Clinton and the Twilight Zone:

You unlock this door with a key of imagination beyond it is another dimension – (Hillary: “ I remember landing under sniper fire. There was suppose to be some kind of a greeting ceremony at the airport, but instead[,] we just ran with our heads down to get into the vehicles to get to our base.” Reporters who accompanied her stated that there was no sniper fire).

A dimension of sound, a dimension of sight – (Hillary: “I am repeating the facts and the facts are I did not send nor did I receive material marked classified”),

A dimension of mind, (Hillary: “We’ve seen rage and violence directed at American embassies over an awful internet video that we had nothing to do with”),

You’re moving into a land of both shadow and substance of things and ideas – (Hillary: ” ‘Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State, as the emails are now confirming, had interlocking, intertwining relationships between the Clinton Foundation and her official duties as Secretary of State.’

And why is that important? It’s important because foreign entities are sending the Clinton’s money, either to the Clinton Foundation or directly to the Clinton’s pocket in the form of these speaking fees, and she has the power as our chief diplomat to make vastly important decisions that affect those very people sending the money.

The emails show that it’s all intertwined. She’s talking Clinton Foundation activity. Clinton aides are talking about steering money to the Clinton Global Initiative from foreign governments. It’s all what I call, the Clinton blur.” – Peter Schweizer).

You just crossed over into the twilight zone – by Rod Serling, creator of The Twilight Zone TV Series.

Mrs. Clinton, you have officially crossed over into the Twilight Zone!
