Gary North

Here is my email to him, with extra links included:

Dr. North,

It’s unfortunate for you if you actually kept you word and blocked all future emails for me after Max Keiser picked up my article exposing your fool’s gold standard, since I am now providing you with an opportunity to smoke out another alleged false flag infiltrator, as you claimed to have done with Ellen Brown.

Today, Nelson Hultberg, in an interview with the Daily Bell, revealed that his “Two Pillars Strategy” of the Conservative American Party involves temporarily implementing “Milton Friedman’s 4% auto-expansion plan for the Fed. This will mandate by law that the Fed can only increase the money supply by 4% every year.”

You know, the plan which you so roundly criticized in your March 19, 2011 article, Milton Friedman’s Contraption, where you stated: “Milton Friedman’s contraption was the unchecked welfare-warfare state: unchecked by annual taxation without withholding and unchecked by the gold standard.”

Regards,

Jason

Meet the Press

Meet the Press, America’s longest-running television show, isn’t still on the air due to superior research and guests.

On the September 4, 2011 episode, they played a video of one of Texas Governor Rick Perry’s campaign events, in which a┬ánine year old asked him who was his favourite superhero.

At 26:35:

I’m gonna show you my age a little bit, Eric, because I don’t know any of the real current superheroes, but there was one back in my day named Superman, and Superman came to save the United States.

Too bad that Meet the Press researchers and host, David Gregory, failed to point out to their audience that Superman had recently renounced his U.S. citizenship, which I find to be very fitting symbolism for would-be President Rick Perry’s plan for America.

Then, at 30:55, presidential historian and frequent Meet the Press talking head, Doris Kearns Goodwin, declared about Perry:

Some of his stands — saying Social Security is unconstitutional, the income tax is bad, we go back to the Senators being elected by state legislatures. That was great, when we had Mr. Oil and Mr. Gas and you could buy your way into the Senate.

First of all, Social Security IS unconstitutional, since it’s not general welfare, but specific welfare. Even if you consider it to be general welfare, the general welfare clause was intended to be a restrictive clause, in limiting spending to Congress’ enumerated powers.

The income tax IS bad since its purpose was and is to insure an ever-growing and unpayable national debt.

And as for big corporations buying their way into the Senate in the past, as if that doesn’t happen even more now! Before, big corporations had to curry favour with a majority of the elected legislators of each of the several States, whereas now, they are able to buy off senators directly, and they have unlimited campaign contributions with which to do so since the 2010 Citizens United Supreme Court decision.

Bald Eagle

Despite the United States being founded as a limited government whose powers are “few and defined,” you wouldn’t know it by comparing it to Canada’s federal government in 2011.

It’s part of the reason why the conservative Heritage Foundation has ranked Canada as more economically free than the U.S. in 2010 and 2011.

If you still think Canada is more socialist than the United States, the joke’s on you, and here are some of the reasons why.

Unlike the U.S., Canada has:

  • No federal welfare program for individuals
  • No federal equivalent to Medicaid
  • No federal food stamps program
  • No federal department of education
  • No federal school lunch program
  • No federal department of housing and urban development
  • No national securities regulator
  • No federal police force in every province

This, despite the U.S. Constitution reserving all undelegated powers to the States and the people, respectively, while Canada’s Constitution reserves those powers to the federal government, showing that a constitution is ultimately as good as you make it.

Who’s socialist now?

John MackFormer CEO and current Chairman of Morgan Stanley, John Mack, was on the Charlie Rose show on January 21, 2011, and showed his gratefulness for the welfare handout the American people gave him and his firm in 2008.

He touted his many business trips to China, being a member of the Beijing mayor’s council, and outrageously, being on the advisory board of China’s sovereign wealth fund, according to Charlie Rose.
