Americans Sell Out Their Children for a Lick and a Promise…

To be read at this weeks Ron Paul meeting, Lafayette, Louisiana…

“Anger dwells only in the bosom of fools.” Albert Einstein

Last year in Paris a group of very boisterous Russians bought my wife and I a drink at the Hotel California. I had a rum and coke and she had a margarita. I remember that because they were drinking copious amounts of very expensive champagne and wine, and kept the kitchen busy into the morning hours. Though I don’t speak a word of Russian, they turned cold on us when they found out we were Americans. It seemed evident in their domineer, and we were implicitly ignored. The next morning when we had coffee in the hotel lobby, I mentioned the evening to the Concierge. It came out in the conversation that they were Ukraine mafia, and the bill for that party was over 100 thousand Euro. Of course that is Hotel California prices…

It has been four-decades since the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs has issued a “dire” travel alert for top officials, scientists and military officers travelling to the United States. This week’s decision came from fears that the Obama administration is preparing to instigate a false flag revolution to retain and secure Progressive power in Washington.

Another memorable experience on that trip happened in broad daylight on the Avenue des Champs-Élysées.  A vagabond came out of a crowd and spit on my jacket yelling in my face that I had taken his picture. He wanted payment. Spitting on me was a reaction to my laughter. He was lucky I was with my gentile-spirited wife, as spitting on an American is the ultimate insult. He must have thought he was safe enough to do it,  but there was a time when he would not have been, and that wasn’t so very long ago.

I also remember our Vietnam boys being spit on by Liberal Progressive Hippies at the San Diego terminal, in 1970.  That is hard to forget.

CrockadileYes, the world is changing, and Americans are as stupid as ever.  Don’t believe me, ask anyone outside of our borders. Forty-seven percent, according to a CNN poll just last night have said they are satisfied with Obama’s job performance. They didn’t poll me, and of course one must consider the source.

So what does Russia know that we don’t?

The “Occupy Wall Street” protests originated in a park called Zuccotti. It is owned and operated by a company that received $200 million from Obama Progressives and should bring up a red flag in the media. What a joke. Who owns them? Who is financing this so-called revolt, this “people’s revolt” that looks very similar to class warfare instigated just prior to both the French and Russian revolutions. American’s wouldn’t know that. They would have to study history.

“The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.” Thomas Jefferson

Obama’s Progressive regime has received more money from Wall Street bankers than any other president in 20 years, and that includes the Neo-Con George W. Bush.  So why would Obama back theprotestors?

Perhaps Russia is listening to IMF advisor Robert Shapiro who is warning that a world-wide economic crash is eminent, and the cycle is set. Perhaps they are also paying attention to Sir Mervyn King, Governor of the Bank of England, who is warning that we are facing the greatest financial crisis in history, the same warnings our own Dr. Ron Paul has given for thirty years. He predicted every bubble, told us why with a viable game plan, and yet we are not allowed to hear his voice. Well, look at who is silencing him! Don’t you listen? You will not be allowed to have Ron Paul as president, and you were told that from the very beginning… do what you are told ignoramus!

This year the first baby boomers hit retirement age.  Better sit down. From this point on 10,000 government employees are hitting retirement age every single day for the next 19 years. That cost is more than the entire world could pay, much less on the backs of Americans. Oh, that’s right, we have the Federal Reserve.

“It is easy to take liberty for granted, when you have never had it taken from you.”  ~Author unknown, sometimes attributed to M. Grundler

To counter this the Federal Reserve has been busy printing money out of thin air. That is the only thing staving outright collapse, and every government in the world knows it. Americans do not. The Obama Progressives have added more debt than all the Presidents combined from Washington to Bush Junior, crushing us with $4 billion a day, a double digit inflation that is the greatest orchestrated tax burden ever devised, and is the enslavement of our children.

So what do Americans care? A full 48.5% of us live in households that receive some form of government assistance. One third of workers have nothing saved, and would not be able to pay their 40 year mortgage the first month after losing their job. Another third would last three. Half of these social dependents live on $505 or less a week. Ask yourself. Look around. What would happen if these people did not get fed by the Federal Government? Would you be safe? The Progressives have destroyed the moral fabric of the left, and they would be the catalyst for unprecedented violence, just as prescribed. Just as planned.

If history would actually be taught in our schools, instead of the Progressive agenda that promotes irresponsibility, stupidity, and selfishness, it would be known that throughout history  social and economic upheavals occur like clockwork, and has for as long as we have been recording.  We would also know that nothing is set in stone, and learn from those mistakes. But were they actually mistakes, or are they orchestrated?

The last great global economic upheaval occurred in 1971. Richard Nixon took the US off the gold standard and it plunged both the US and Europe into a decade-long period of stagnation.  It was called the Nixon Shock. Ask your teachers why that isn’t taught!  It ended when Reagan began the largest peacetime buildup of military forces in all history, and broke the back of the Soviet Empire in the process. It also was the closest we have come to WW3, and made us more dependent on the Middle East. Do they teach about our past involvement and domination over Iran, who is now threatened by Israel with nuclear bombs? What about Iraq, or Afghanistan- the Vietnam of Russia, as they tried to build a pipeline at the same time our partners Saudi flooded the market with cheap oil, at our demand.  I do. From 1983 to 1989 Lafayette was devastated, with seven out of nine local banks going belly up. Is that taught? The oil field was obliterated… just as the forgotten moratorium, unprecedented, unconstitutional, did just two years ago with the BP oil spill. Research what BP has to do with Iran. Who is the Shaw of Iran, you fools?

Ron Paul taught it.

Most fools think they are only ignorant.”Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790) American statesman, scientist and philosopher.

Yes, history repeats itself, and yet the ignorant sees it for the first time. In 1944, not long after the Great Depression and the global economic upheaval, came the Bretton Woods System.  “The chief features of the Bretton Woods system were an obligation for each country to adopt a monetary policy that maintained the exchange rate by tying its currency to the U.S. dollar and the ability of the IMF to bridge temporary imbalances of payments.

On August 15, 1971, the United States unilaterally terminated convertibility of the dollar to gold. As a result, “[t]he Bretton Woods system officially ended and the dollar became fully ‘fiat currency,’ backed by nothing but the promise of the federal government.”

WW2 had an estimated death toll of 150 million, and that will pale in comparison to what we now face. We are being primed for WW3 now, and the focus is not Asia, but the Middle East. We are being systematically taught to hate Islam, because we need justification for war. The death and destruction would be biblical, and killing in the name of god is found on both side of the insanity fence.

WW3 has been planned for decades, and it will usher in what they call the (NIEO), the New International Economic Order. The true One World Order, and the sovereignty of every nation will dissolve. Religion will dissolve too.

Obama now has the power to assassinate any citizen he so chooses. The CIA warns that no journalist is safe, and there are more sinister, liberty dissolving, constitutional shredding mandates in the works. FBI is about to implement a nationwide facial recognition system with the guise to track those with ties to extremist or terrorist groups. Those who are seen to pose a “serious national security threat,” by the newly refurbished and expanded US Department of Homeland Security, the testing of their “Pre-Crime Detection System” will have the authority to jail anyone, without due process, for just the potential to commit one. That thought of innocent until proven guilty is now dead. Indeed, the words of George Orwell, 1984, is being manifested in today’s America: “There was of course no way of knowing whether you were being watched at any given moment. How often, or on what system, the Thought Police plugged in on any individual wire was guesswork. It was even conceivable that they watched everybody all the time.” …An extension of the so called Patriot Act…

Enslavement can come in many forms. It might seem, in comparison, that the most humane form is the ball and chain. The true horror, the most disgusting and degrading of all, is slavery of the mind. Slavery, if you will, of the spirit. What revulsion. How pitiful to watch a once great nation succumb to a Big Brother government that has doubled since the Obama Progressives took control. How disgusting to watch a people whose forefathers warned them go unheeded. How terrible to remember through the dim light of rewritten history by the Progressive ideologue what we Americans once had the ability to dream. What disgust to see what lazy fools we have become, as the blood and toil of our ancestors to give us liberty and freedom is wasted on those who now eat what they are given, think what they are told, and polish their chains with pride.

“Who speaks of liberty while the human mind is in chains?”  ~Francis Wright, 1828

How heartbreaking to watch a man like Dr. Paul, so pure of spirit, so educated, so consistent and right in his message,  be so maligned. In the future, and there will indeed be one, those who caused these problems will be nothing but footnotes, but Dr. Paul will be remembered as a true American Champion for liberty. His message will continue, and will be considered the ultimate salvation of our republic. It seems that we will have to be destroyed first however, as our instilled weak natures just can’t visualize or realize what we actually have, what we had, until it is lost. It will be finally realized that safeguarding it would have been far easier than creating it from the ashes. But we will, ultimately, get exactly what we deserve…  

God bless America, and forgive us for giving it away.

“Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom, must, like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it.”  ~Thomas Paine

“I caught a raccoon in my trap last month. He sat in his wire cage all night long biting at the wire mesh and grasping the grass through the sides. Before I could let him go in a safe place, I had fed him three time. He ate it all, and drank every drop.

“After the three hour journey in my car I opened the cage door. He scrambled out like on fire, and never looked back. He knew what freedom and liberty was all about, concepts most Americans have long forgotten.”-Ken LaRive

3 Comments on Americans Sell Out Their Children for a Lick and a Promise…

  1. Very well written Ken. I was talking to Jeffry Sanford not 2 weeks ago about the decline of our society became inevitable when the gold standard was eliminated. Now it’s just crooks printing money for their own causes, which they sold out to the highest bidder. Today I saw something on Facebook about Obama being restrained from implementing his policies by the Constitution. I can’t give up, because I’m accustomed to being beat down & getting back up; but, seriously, “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.” Thomas Jefferson…I’m blessed to not have children, but that doesn’t make me feel any less responsible for protecting our Constitution for those who will inherit the earth. I can’t sit back & say I did nothing. That’s embarrassing.
