Anyone concerned about the growth of government, taxes, and prosperity should take account of the importance of our currency in the equation.
“It is no coincidence that the century of total war coincided with the century of central banking.” -Ron Paul
Each man is a pioneer in his respective field of expertise. One is a promoter of liberty, the other in the captivity-breeding world of central banking. Do you want to Read Rothbard? Or discover how the Rothschilds rose to power and how they bend politicians and history to their desires?
To be brief, “Keynesian” economists believe that human beings are smart enough to manage an infinitely complex society, bailouts should be given to the businesses they view as valuable, and governments should be able to spend unlimited sums of money/debt on whatever the government decides.

If you’re unfamiliar with the topic or enjoy seeing Keynesians get debunked in public the below video featuring Spanish “Austrian” economist Pedro Schwartz is pure gold.
Complete video here, in a mix of English and Spanish. Start around 1:00 for a good English section with back and forth dialogue between the speakers.
As a final goodie, check out this video of Senior Fellow at The Ludwig von Mises Institute, Mark Thornton outlining the incredible foresight, value and power of Austrian economics vs. the over-promising, under-delivering, fantasy of Keynesian thought.
Here’s the latest interview folks! This time with the brilliant, insightful and quite funny economist Dr. Robert Murphy.
We all suffer from the global disease of government, this man has answers that strike the “great idea” button with me harder than about anyone I’ve ever heard.
In the hour long discussion Dr. Murphy nails a spectrum of topics from the core essence of free market economics and “libertarian” environmental solutions, to the relevance of God and The Bible in commerce, and even the scary but very real “new world order” and their goals/actions in today’s society—among MANY others!
I hope it serves you well–if you like it please share, I think the world will benefit greatly from his work.
With fact and humor, “The American Dream” delivers a hilarious and powerfully informative look into how America has been brought to its financial kness and WHO did it.
Great for anyone wanting more information on the economic crisis without needing a finance degree!
A great video. Want to know a hidden perk of printing cash or injecting liquidity via computerized loans–and devaluing the dollar? Your debts become a lot easier to pay!
Now that we have over $14.5 TRILLION in debt, this is likely a MAJOR driver of our central banks and government’s policy.
For a clip less than 10 minutes, this video is packed with powerful and useful details.
If you’re pissed about the bailouts, foreign wars and national debt; meet the guy that has a plan to end the madness of these events by attacking their cause: central banking and The Federal Reserve.
If America didn’t have a central bank (The FED), we wouldn’t be able to finance these projects with Uncle Sam’s credit card because The Fed issues our debt and signs the checks to the military/Wall Street/parasites.
Dr. Richard Davis is a Former Naval Officer (aircraft carriers, Navy Seals, the whole thing), inventor (over 350 patents and trademarks to his name), business man (over $1 billion in market cap for his companies) and a class one trauma surgeon in Tampa, FL.
Even if you love The Fed, think Tim Geithner is brilliant, and believe that suing them is ludicrous; I imagine we can at least agree that the man has proven his critical thinking chops and bare-minimum has the mental horsepower to come up with some pretty incredible ideas, strategies and concepts, yes?
Well then let’s see what he comes up with for central banking, an monetary system and form of government…
If you don’t watch all 5 videos, at least watch the first and the last–he delivers a pretty amazing surprise at the end.
If I had a clone I would be roaring like a GTO’s V-8 on jet fuel on this site while taking care of business in my real job. In the absence of such a dangerous innovation, I am forced to split my time and do what I have to do and keep a foot in two worlds at once.
Although I haven’t put up any new articles in almost a week (GASP!!) I’ve been busy lining up some incredible guests for you gals and guys. How about Federal Reserve busting liberty superstar G. Edward Griffin, arguably the most credible conspiracy theorist on the planet FBI Special Agent Ted Gunderson, former IRS Agent and current anti-income tax crusader Joe Bannister (all of whom have committed to connect for an interview, just waiting on a mutually free time) and a special surprise guest who is so far out in left field that you simply have to hear his story first hand to believe he’s not a character in a Dan Brown novel.
Thanks for sticking around, I feel like a parent who spent their first weekend away from their baby; only I’ve been knitting sweaters non-stop ready to dress the little bugger for the cold winter ahead.
And yes, we may be facing a long and nasty stretch of political and economic cold weather. Will we make it? No, sadly WE will not; some people will not adapt and they will end up in very difficult times. Others will change and they will experience great prosperity, joy and passion for life.
Will the dollar collapse and gold and silver take off? I don’t know. Are those currencies likely manipulated to a significant degree by mega banks and hedge funds? Absolutely. Therefore it’s tough to tell what’s happening in reality and what is just the result of a financial gurus gaming the system.
What I do know, is that the following clip gives a glimpse into the scary world of government-sponsored drug trafficking and opens some strange and alarming doors into a parallel reality filled with powerful and relentlessly corrupt individuals with a moral compass set to due south.
If you really want to go on a bender, start digging into the town of Mena, Arkansas during Bill Clinton’s Governorship and the allegations of cocaine trafficking, I warn you though; you might not come back from this one the same person.
“Freeway” Ricky Ross and FBI Special Agent Ted Gunderson are among many interesting characters including Dr. Paul who are now accusing The C.I.A. and other government entities of running drugs to raise money for clandestine operations and/or to potentially undermine society.
Strap your boots on friends, it’s gonna get dirty.
Tom Woods is an absolute rockstar.
Tune is for 4:17 of economic enlightenment.
In the video Judge Napolitano references Bernanke’s admission to central banking manipulations causing the Great Depression but he says that they didn’t print enough money!
Lot’s of conservatives and liberals alike often trumpet their faith and adherence to “America’s sacred charter” in flowering speeches the glow with self-styled patriotism and passion for American values and history.
To quote Dr. Paul, “Simply praising the document distracts from the need for members [of Congress] to gain the courage to resist special interests, political self-interest, emergency needs in times of crisis, fear-based economic myths and the persistent temptation seeks security over liberty while ignoring personal responsibility and self-reliance.”
With this new found praise will we as a people live up to our statements of faith and honor?
To what degree will we follow this incredible piece of political and social thought?
Will we now hold our elected officials accountable to their words and reject the following entirely un-Constitutional ideas: war without a declaration, a central bank, a monetary system not backed by gold or silver, a department of homeland security, a department of energy, The P.A.T.R.I.O.T Act and many other modern creations of politcians that Dr. Paul mentions in the below video?
*from Wikipedia: The title of The Patriot Act is a contrived three letter initialism (USA) preceding a seven letter acronym (PATRIOT), which in combination stand for Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism Act of 2001. The acronym was created by a 23 year old Congressional staffer, Chris Cylke.
