"Gentlemen, Comrades, do not be concerned about all you hear about glasnost and perestroika and democracy in the coming years. These are primarily for outward consumption. There will be no significant internal change within the Soviet Union, other than for cosmetic purposes. Our purpose is to disarm the Americans and let them fall asleep."
-Mikhail Gorbachev, in addressing the Soviet Politburo in November of 1987
Ezra Taft Benson.....
"The Devil knows that if the Elders of Israel should ever wake up, they could step forth and help preserve freedom and extend the gospel. Therefore, the Devil has concentrated, and to a large extent successfully, in neutralizing much of the priesthood. He has reduced them to sleeping giants."
-Ezra Taft Benson
While serving as Secretary of Agriculture, Benson also met with many world leaders, some of whom left lasting impressions on him. He appreciated the courage of Israel’s David Ben-Gurion and the principled anti-Communist statesmanship of Free China’s Chiang Kai-shek. He was less enthusiastic about meeting Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev in 1959, during the Communist dictator’s visit to Washington. Asked by Eisenhower to accompany Khrushchev and his entourage on a tour of a USDA station, Benson agreed with extreme reluctance. He was opposed to bringing the boasting tyrant to the United States at all. "My enthusiasm for the project," he later recorded, "could have been put in a small thimble.... [Khrushchev] has about as much conception of right and wrong as a jungle animal." Nevertheless, he made the most of the occasion, unambiguously spelling out the advantages of freedom in a speech at the Plant Industry building to the Communist dictator and his minions. He recalled: "I told about the way research is conducted and how it is carried to the people through our free press; and how new ideas … are freely available to everyone interested.... Our farmers have transformed American agriculture under our capitalistic free enterprise system.... As I finished I thought, And I hope you get the message."
At one point during Khrushchev’s visit, the Soviet Premier boasted to the Agriculture Secretary that Benson’s own grandchildren would live under Communism. Benson replied tartly that he expected to do all in his power to assure that Khrushchev’s and all other grandchildren would live under freedom. The Communist leader then responded in essence, according to Benson’s personal account: "You Americans are so gullible. No, you won’t accept communism outright, but we’ll keep feeding you small doses of socialism until you’ll finally wake up and find you already have communism."

Paper Money Is Mortgage on Wealth That Doesn't Exist
Whenever destroyers appear among men, they start by destroying gold money, for it is man's protection, and the base of a moral existence. Destroyers seize gold and leave to its owners a counterfeit pile of paper. This kills all objective standards and delivers men into the arbitrary power of an arbitrary setter of values. Gold is an objective value, an equivalent of wealth produced. Paper money is mortgage on wealth that does not exist, backed by guns aimed at those who are expected to produce. Paper money is a check drawn by legal looters upon an account which is not theirs: upon the virtue of the victims. Watch for the day when it bounces, marked: "account overdrawn".
When you have made evil the means of survival, do not expect men to remain good. Do not expect them to stay moral and to become fodder for the immoral. Do not expect them to produce when production is punished and looting rewarded. Do not ask who is destroying the world. You are.
Blood, Whips, and Guns - or Gold
Until and unless you discover that money is the root of all good, you ask for your own destruction. When money ceases to be the tool by which men deal with one another, men become the tools of men. Blood, whips, and guns - or gold. Take your choice - there is no other - and your time is running out.
Blueprint for a New Gold Coin Standard
Making money was the highest activity of men before looters invaded the nerve-center of capitalism and abolished the gold-reserve requirement for the issuance of Federal Reserve notes in 1968. Ever since "making money" has been the lowest activity of men whereby the savers and producers are fleeced of their substance. Watch for the day when the last meaningful productive job in America is exported to China. On that day American society will become a zoo, and American citizens will be reduced to the station of animals in the cage, totally dependent on the zoo-keeper for food and shelter.

Eliminate the Sixteenth Amendment because it violates every American's constitutional rights, because an annual, federal income tax is a Marxist tool for the growth of totalitarianism and because it is unconstitutional-in spite of the Sixteenth Amendment. In the April 3, 1995 issue of The New American, Thomas R. Eddlem writes, "Tyrannies impose taxes primarily to transform society or advance social goals, and consider the revenue raised as only a secondary benefit...America's Founding Fathers sought to limit government's manipulation of the individual and the economy and to remove the tax collector from direct contact with the citizen. By 1805 the federal revenue agent was banished to the seashore and limited to collecting taxes on imported goods...The Founders recognized that taxes imposed directly on Americans would provide far more opportunities for both social scheming and inefficient economic dislocation." During Thomas Jefferson's Administration more than 90 percent of federal revenue was generated from the tariff....Today not counting borrowing, 90 percent of federal revenue is derived from income and payroll taxes." William J Gill write "that all the Founding Fathers were Protectionists, that the American Revolution had been fought over trade, that the country had been built on the solid foundation of protecting our industries and agriculture from predatory imports, that the tariff paid the lion's share of the funds for running the government for 125 years-until it was replaced by the income tax..." To pursue the policy of free trade with totalitarian nations, such as Red China, is nothing less than suicidal. In order to save our nation, it is imperative that we return, ad Mr. Gill advocates, "to the sane trade policies established by" the founders of our nation.
By restoring constitutional government and eliminating the unconstitutional controls, regulations, and taxation, we can bring American manufacturing, jobs, and agriculture back to this country. Just as "the name of American" which belongs to us in our national capacity and which "must always exalt the just pride of patriotism," so should products bearing the label Made in USA, exalt the same pride. Every American who loves this country can refuse to buy products made by nations which are our enemies and which are using our money to build the weapons with which they plan to attack us.
Repeal the Federal Reserve Act of 1913 and abolish the Federal Reserve System. In order to take back our culture, we must destroy the communitarian elite's financial power base and liberate the media, the schools, the universities, the churches, and the entertainment industry. To eliminate its power base, it is absolutely vital that we liquidate the Federal Reserve Act of 1913 and abolish the Federal Reserve System.

Outsider's News - The Federal Reserve Banking System
The Federal Reserve controls the flow of money, making it tight and creating unemployment or printing more than actually exists and creates inflation. It is, in essence, a paper corporation, which controls the entire economic well being of the nation. The National Debt is based upon this money, borrowed from the Federal Reserve, which controlling interests are foreign investors. If the Federal Reserve disappeared today and the Federal Government issued it own money, these loans would go away along with their interest payments. When this happens the National Debt ceases to exist along with the need for income taxes.
No Congress or President has been strong enough to stand up to the foreign-controlled Federal Reserve Bank. Yet there is a catch, one that President Kennedy recognized before he was slain. The original deal in 1913 creating the Federal Reserve Bank had a simple back out clause. The investors loaned the United States Government $1 billion. And the back out clause allows the United States to buy out the system for that $1 billion. If the Federal Reserve Bank were bought out and dismantled; and the Congress of the United States took control of the currency, as required in the Constitution, the National Debt would virtually end overnight, and the need for more taxes and even the income tax, itself.
(Yes, Kennedy was printing U.S. Notes that would have eliminated the national debt, but not too many know this little nugget. Johnson wanted to be President, and immediatly burned them...forget about the "conspiracy theories" in the media.)
U.S. Constitution. Article 1, Section 8: "The Congress shall have the Power To coin Money, regulate the Value thereof, and of foreign Coin, and fix the Standard of Weights and Measures." Furthermore, "No State shall...coin Money; emit Bills of Credit; make any Thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts."
And those congresscritters, those not too bright "career politicians," need to brush up on the "Oath of Office" so they understand why it is they are about to loose their jobs!
End the hoax!
