James Corbett, May 25th, 2013.
For the most part I've held off throwing my hat into (or keeping it out of) the ring during the recent bout of Bitcoin-mania. This isn't out of ignorance of the currency. Back in May 2011, before most people had even heard of the crypto-currency, I interviewed a man calling himself “The Real Plato” claiming to be on “the world's first Bitcoin road trip” traveling across America paying his way exclusively in Bitcoin. No, it's not ignorance that has kept me out of the Bitcoin arena up until this point; it's ambivalence.
If ambivalence were a power I'd be a superhero. For the longest time I've had the most uncanny ability to see both the potential good and the potential bad in a new idea simultaneously, often in equal measure. Ambivalence is either my fatal flaw or my saving grace. I haven't decided yet.
When it comes to Bitcoin, this ambivalence of mine has left me particularly on the fence. The debate that has taken place in recent months seems, from my perspective, to have played out on the far poles of opinion on the matter. All we have heard are arguments between the currency's ardent defenders—who seem too strident, too ardent, too zealous for my liking—and its staunch opponents—who seem too categorical, too unimagi...

Once again, in the grand tradition of American muckrakers, Stephen Lendman strikes to the heart of Wall Street/government collusion to protect the powerful and drive ordinary Americans into the Third World ditch. Here’s some straight talk on unaffordable health care, unrepayable student debt, bankrupt cities, money printing madness, trillion dollar tax havens, IMF financial terrorism, the austerity hoax, banksters’ market-rigging thievery, and the domestic police, media and legislative repression set to keep all that in place.

The thesis of this book by John Benson is that, based upon Murray, G.M. Leasing, and the government’s admission to the Supreme Court in 1977, and put into plain English, all IRS processes and procedures are, in substance and effect, simply the ancient English revenue processes and procedures employed by the king’s revenue officials in the Exchequer (Treasury) in 1791 dressed up in modern garb. To be sure, the author claims, the words used are different and not easily understood. However, as the Murray Court stated clearly, “The name bestowed upon it cannot affect its constitutional validity.” 59 U.S. 272, 276 (1856). Link.

American Free Press called this new book “an amazing encyclopedia” and “the final word on some of the biggest conspiracies in American history,” and I can tell you that I recommend it very highly. Florida talk-show host Bobby Lee said, “The Introduction alone is worth the price of the book.”

How Wall Street Fleeces AmericaThe 1913 Federal Reserve Act let powerful bankers usurp money creation authority in violation of the Constitution's Article I, Section 8, giving only Congress the power to "coin Money (and) regulate the Value thereof...." Thereafter, powerful bankers used their control over money, credit and debt for private self-enrichment, bankrolling and colluding with Congress and administrations to implement laws favoring them.

Breaking the Demopublican Monopoly --2004 publication.
Breaking the Demopublican Monopoly: How to Unify the Political Right with a Third Party that Can Win. By Nelson Hultberg (with a special Appendix by Antal E. Fekete) We are taught in school that the strength of the American political system lies in the fact that we have a "two-party process." This is akin to teaching that babies come from storks. The reality is that America is now a one-party state. The Democratic and Republican parties have become nothing but two divisions of the same party -- the Central Leviathan Party. The Demopublicans now tax over 50% of our earnings every year. They steal hundreds of billions from our savings through currency debasement. They have brought us a national debt of over $7 trillion. They have saddled us with $45 trillion in unfunded liabilities to come due on the backs of our children. They have bankrupted us as a nation. It is a fallacy to say that third parties in America cannot work. All third parties like the Libertarians and Reformers that have sprung up in the past century have been built upon two strategic flaws that doom them to failure. Correct these two fundamental errors, and a genuine challenge to the Demopublicans can be launched. In this book, Nelson Hultberg shows how to avoid these two errors and attract millions of voters to the cause of freedom and Constitutional government. He outlines a daring, innovative political strategy that will stop the growth of the federal Leviathan cold and rebuild our nation upon gold money and fair taxation. Website: www.afr.org
