Twelve Dates Which Led to the Destruction of America

The Common Sense Show


Recently, I have been seeing allegations of fear monger, doom and gloom, etc., being thrown about as writers and broadcasters who dare to identify the threats facing the American people. Some people have gone so far as to engage in abject denial (e.g. cognitive dissonance) so they can continue to hide within their self-protected enclaves of mindless entertainment as a means to perpetuate self-deception.

The reality is that the people who use the term “doom and gloom” to describe the writers who describe the events which are shaking our nation to its core, you are guilty of one of two things. Either you are incredibly ignorant about the events swirling around you or have you possess a lack personal courage because you do not have the guts to stand up to tyranny when it is in your face.

Some present the term “doom and gloom” as if it is a recent phenomenon made up by a cottage industry of conspiracy theorists to profit from rallying the American people to fight against some imaginary enemy that poses no real  threat. Selling fear is the most common allegation.

The doom and gloom facing this country is not a recent, pop phenomenon. These events have been decades in the making for it is hard to slay a nation as great as America once was. It took several generations for the globalists to destroy the foundations of this country.

There was a time that this country could have still saved itself. We could have occupied the “Bastards from Basel” and laid waste to any power that would have opposed our Republic and what it stood for. When did America cross that threshold and when did the US begin to crumble as an empire?

The Dirty Dozen

There are 12 key dates that Americas can point to in terms of pinpointing when America began to crumble:

1. The year 1913 is an important year because it marked the year that the banksters totally gained control over our economy through the passage of the Federal Reserve Act. This culminated in the bankers, through Franklin Roosevelt removing America from the gold standard and marked the ushering in of controlling America through debt management.

2. In 1944, at the Bretton Woods Agreement Conference, the United States totally surrendered its sovereignty to the forces of the Rothschild/Rockefeller banking forces by forcing the nations of the world to accept the dictates of the centralized banking system.

3. In 1947, the NSA and CIA became operational and marked the birth of the national police state surveillance grid. The CIA, an outgrowth of the WWII spy organization, the OSS, became a permanent structure in the American landscape. Today, the CIA is a private corporation which operates as a prostitute for global banking interests as they do not represent the United States.

4. In 1948, we witnessed the creation of the United Nations on land donated by the Rockefeller family. This marked the beginning  of the end of political sovereignty in the United States. Mark my words, when the gun confiscation troops come to your home, they will be UN blue-helmeted troops operating under the authority of the UN Small Arms Treaty, which John Kerry recently and unconstitutionally signed without the required approval of the Senate. Certainly, the creation of ICELEI and Agenda 21 has UN origins and this cancer upon America, has its roots in the United Nations.

5. The 1960 election was primarily determined by the images on television as the underdog, the charismatic JFK, defeated the favorite, Richard Nixon. Since that time, many Americans have been conditioned to ignore the encroachment of tyranny because of television and the subsequent propagandizing of this medium of communication.

6. The outlawing of prayer in the classroom in 1962 was a key date with regard to the loss of moral authority in our country. Although Congress and the Supreme Court begin each session with a prayer,our children were taught that secular authority reigned supreme over God’s word. In the five decades since America cross this threshold, what has happened to the moral integrity of this country?

7. In 1968, the United States became a nation that imported more than it exported as Congress allowed corporations, with impunity, to relocate overseas for reasons of cheap labor and monopolistic price-fixing. This trend continued through the free trade agreements until, today, we have a mere 14% left of what was once our proud American manufacturing base.

8. On September 11, 2001, the national police state surveillance grid reached maturity. This event created, under the guise of national security, the American Stasi, The Department of Homeland Security. It has also created the Patriot Acts in which every communication that we engage in is monitored, but only for our own protection of course. This event also gave license to blue-uniformed, pot-bellied perverts to commit sexual assault upon the American traveling public through the creation of the TSA. It also gave rise to the prominence of FEMA to control every resource, every asset and even our freedom.

9. In 2008, this nation elected Obama to the presidency despite serious questions regarding his true nationality, his stunning lack of political experience and his decided lack of devotion to the Constitutional ideals emanating from the days of his “community activism” and his subsequent mentoring and support from former Weathermen Underground leaders, Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dorne. Can anyone name even one thing that this President has accomplished on behalf of the American people? Please just name one thing?…….  That is what I thought.

10. In 2010, America committed economic suicide through the passage and eventual administration of Obamacare. Obamacare will not only lead to the premature deaths of millions of Americans through the denial of medical service in deference to corporate profits, it will eventually lead to the economic death of the nation through the destruction of small business, the backbone of America, through mandated medical care coverage for employees of small businesses. This set into motion that our biggest employer, small business, was going to fail in large numbers.

11. In 2011, the United States blew up the United States Constitution when Congress passed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). The NDAA obliterated all civil liberties because this marked the day that our government became the Gestapo, the Stasi and the KGB all rolled into one organization. Any government that can imprison and indefinitely detain its citizens without due process of law is an unmasked dictatorship which has genocidal intentions waiting in the wings.

12. The twelfth and final date, from 1870- present, contains the date that Rockefeller’s Standard Oil set into motion the creation of the American corporatocracy in which corporations, not citizens run the government of the United States.

A Simple Fix

The American people could have stopped the tyranny in its tracks if they would have done one thing. And that one thing would have been to outlaw every campaign contribution and lobbying efforts by the corporations which turned our elected representatives into a pack of hedonistic whores. This idea is simple but would have proven effective, if we would have had the moral courage to enforce this concept.


To those that accuse myself and my brethren of fear mongering and promoting doom and gloom, it should be obvious that the destruction of this country has been in the works for a lot longer than anyone of us has been writing and broadcasting. To these people, I say please step aside and let the real men and women of this country do their job, which is to wake up enough people so we can at least attempt to oppose the imposition of the New World Order.

In the next part of this series, I am going to cover the threats to our way of life and existence on a micro level as the effects of these 12 dates have come home to roost in the dismantling of our daily lives.

    Don’t forget that in 1913 the 16th amendment was ratified which codified theft. Also, I’d add to this list 1863 and the tyrant Lincoln’s Gettysburg address where he changed the reason for fighting the southern states. What Lincoln did was undo much of the framers intent when they crafted the constitution. Lincoln, Wilson and FDR were the worst presidents in American history.

    the true “doom & gloom” is the abject and willfull/wanton ignorance that the general public display as they coast through life on their way to the next dancing with the stars show. or the painted morons who show up in freezing temps at some sporis event to cheer grown? men who are playing a GAME! we can only “save” those with ears to hear. forget everyone else, it’s too late. only those who want to know whats going on are worth our time, the rest are doomed. we must be good stewards and invest our time wisely.

    It is always better to die on your feet than live on your knees. If you choose to live on your knees then stay out of the way, so that those of us who cherish freedom don’t trip over you as we fight to regain what has been lost. You have a choice to make. Freedom or death. And it doesn’t matter if it will be 10 minutes from now or 10 years….evil doesn’t sleep.

  6. William B Stoecker February 19, 2014 at 8:11 am

    Mr. Hodges is right on, as usual. To these dates I would add 1861, when Lincoln took office. He waged a bloody, unconstitutional war; he instituted an unconstitutional draft; he greatly increased our national debt; he imprisoned some political opponents; he expanded the federal bureaucracy by creating the Department of Agriculture; and he really began crony capitalism with huge land grants to the railroads.
    Then, some years prior to 1913, state militias were collectively re-designated as the National Guard, undermining state sovereignty and making it easier for the federales to get us into lengthy, bloody overseas wars.
    In 1933 (33 is a magical Masonic number) thirty second degree Freemason FDR became our thirty second President and used the depression which the elites had engineered as an excuse for a massive expansion of the federal government and the creation of a permanent welfare class…hired voters for the left.

  7. David February 19, 2014 at 8:21 am

    I submit 1973 – Roe v. Wade.

    “Our fathers, recognizing God as the author of human life, proclaimed it a ‘self evident truth’ that every human being holds from the Creator an inalienable right to live … If this right be denied, no other can be acknowledged.” Joshua R. Giddings, 1858, in reference to the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.
    Big, huge mistake!

    Evil fears goodness, the dark fears the light, those who believe that Jesus Christ is our savior shall not perish. There is everlasting life, it’s within your grasps. The gun is the last resort, prayers from 50 million people are stronger than any bullet. The problem and they know it is getting people to pray together. What we need is a day, an hour, a time when people stop what they are doing and pray as one. Anything else is futile.

    I also include Aug 15, 1971, leaving the Gold standard which enabled the vehicle of Fiat Currency in to the USA.
    2 things that you must do to bring down a nation are:
    1. Exhaust the military
    2. Collapse the currency.

    Problem. There are too many communists in America, period. I’ll bet there are more communists here (also in N.A. as a whole) than in Russia and China combined. Here we have a citizenship where 50% of them are left-leaning and hate America and will always vote with the Communist Democrat Party even if they were on their way to the guillotine. The other half is comprised of conservatives, libertarians, RHINOs, republicans, constitutionalists etc, and they are so divided that they eat their own on a daily basis. So the communists always win. Our global competitors, the Russians and the Chinese have figured things out after a few centuries and what they have figured out is that, “it’s the economy, Stupid”. Russians have Oil. The Chinese have Gold. What do we have? We have the EPA, the Police State, Agenda 21, environmental kooks, wealth re-distribution and confiscation, NSA, CIA, Pelosi, Schumer, Obama, Clintons, Banksters, etc, who couldn’t give a damn about the U.S.A only in how they can change it and profit from it. Russia and China are doing what’s best for Russia and China, period. And that’s why we collapse. If we patriots ever did take back our Republic, then what do we do with those leftist citizens and leaders who will have no doubt followed behind us in our victory? Do you think they would have learned their lesson and change their ways? Absolutely not.

  14. MarkMaximus February 19, 2014 at 10:03 am

    Even if the nation somehow wins against the ruling elitists, to what do we go back to?
    U Gotta love the national media (the presstitutes) that puts beautiful babes on TV News Shows (entertainment) like Faux, CNN etc. every night to seduce average citizen Joes to gulp down all the horse _____ they peddle. I guess Joes figures as long as the babe is hot it doesn’t matter if they’re peddling horse ____. It’s not always what the media says though that is so disturbing. It’s what they don’t say in complicity with their evil luciferian, elitist masters. Many will never forget Katherine Graham of the Washington Post in her elitist boasting, “We only tell the public what we want them to know.” That about said it all.

    But citizen Joe has no idea he’s being fed or brainfilled with horse _____ just about every night by Faux and CNN et. al. Brainwashing, Brainfilling? Consider how easy it is to brainwash or brainfill people.
    I tell an audience that, “A man left home and went jogging. He jogged a little bit and turn left, jogged a little bit and turned left, jogged a little bit and turned left and went back home. When he got home there were two, masked man waiting for him. Who were the masked men?” Invariably 98% of the audience says, “They were robbers.”

    So I say, “No, no, no. Let’s try it again. A man left home and went jogging. He jogged a little bit and turn left, jogged a little bit and turned left, jogged a little bit and turned left and went back home. When he got home there were two, masked man waiting for him. Who were the masked men?” Again 98% of the audience says, “They were robbers.”
    I tell them let’s try one more time. But this time I show on the projection screen a diagram of a baseball diamond, the infield. And I repeat the story. And they soon realize that the umpire and the catcher were the two masked men. They say, “Wow, is it that easy to get brainwashed?”
    “Yes it is,” I tell them! “You just don’t tell the saps everything. ONLY WHAT YOU WANT THEM TO KNOW. And they’re doing it to your kids everyday. When they tell your kids, ‘millions and millions of years ago kids, the dinosaurs evolved’ (i.e., evolution is true kids and I’m here to warp your innocent brains, teach you that 1+1=4). That’s brainfilling your kids with what to think, not how to think critically. That’s Sovietizing your kids.”

    “How many of you knew that Amber Lynn of CNN admitted they were paid to run certain stories and paid to spike others?!!! John B Wells talks about it all the time. You see, there’s a whole lot of things going on out there, in which the media is choosing which things to tell us about, and what not to tell us about. And of the stories they actually do decide to run, they can leave out certain pieces of information so as to shape our view of a particular account that they are telling us about.”

    For example, one could film a scene where teenagers and policemen are battling each other (a riot is taking place). You can set up two different cameras to record the very same scene from different angles. Then for each piece of film, you can have a narrator read a different account of the events. For one account, the audience watches the film and listens to the newscaster, and comes away believing it was the teenagers who were at fault, who provoked the police to take action against them.
    For another account, the audience watches the film and listens to the newscaster, and comes away believing it was the cops who were at fault, who provoked the teenagers into defending themselves against the brutal cops. It happens every day folks. Don’t trust the media and Hollywood. Trust God (by the way, Dr. Francis Schaeffer really conducted this demonstration and the results were shocking. See his video series, How Then Shall We Live.

    Now the dumbed down will say, “You people are nuts. If you don’t like the programming by the media and Hollywood, just turn off the TV and don’t go to the movies.”
    “Well if only it were that simple ,” we would respond. For you see my friend, you and I now have to live in the jungle these psychopathic sympathizers are helping to create. For if many agree that the national media and Hollywood is pumping out a lot of garbage, who do you think the garbage containers are? You, me, and our kids. Consider the metaphor of the orange. If you squeeze an orange, what comes out? Orange juice of course. So if people in a society are being filled up with corrupt ideas from educators, the media etc., (ideas about,murder, lying and deception, uncontrolled anger, bitterness.., rape, stealing, sexual immorality, dangerous music (music after all, stir the emotions), glamorization of all kinds of evils, deceptive ideas about evolution as the explanation for the origin of life. So if people are being filled with illusion, delusion, bankrupt philosophy, then doesn’t it reason that most people develop worldviews in which they will act on the ideas they’ve been fed? Isn’t that why the Bible instructs us to fill ourselves up with the Word of God and that the eyes and ears are the windows to our soul? It instructs us how to get through life. God’s Holy Word is the best thing for clearing the poison pumped into our minds from evil psychopaths and their puppets.

    Paul McGuire adds:
    The problem is that there is an absence of leadership offering an alternative to the globalist game plan to radically transform America. Although there are some differences between the Republican and Democratic Parties, essentially both parties are controlled by an invisible elite and are moving us toward a New Age / World Socialist State. It is not an accident that almost all of the media are owned and controlled by just six major corporations. As such, not all, but the majority of the so-called conservative radio and television talk show hosts are basically puppets for the globalist elite. This is the reason why most of the “conservative” media never talk about the real issues. They play a kind of Republican vs. Democrat Super Bowl Game where people are given the illusion that they can make real changes by rooting for their team. This process allows for a temporary emotional discharge of frustration, but solves nothing. http://www.newswithviews.com/McGuire/paul202.htm

    The same journalists, politicians, academics, and certain segments of the general public who have hysterically screamed “conspiracy theory” anytime this subject was even hinted at have now suddenly discovered it after sixty years of its existence! [re: the NSA Big Brother Surveillance of Americans that most Americans had been in the dark about]
    “Skeptics,” who are the real true believers (in the status quo and the official line) hysterically scream “conspiracy theory” every time anything is brought up that is a threat to their appalling ignorance. Yet now they are beginning to realize that government surveillance of citizens is real…the things we conspiracy “theorists” have been trying to tell them for the last fifty years are true. But all along the majority of the key players in media, politics, entertainment, and religion secretly knew it was true and were part of a conspiracy to conceal it from the American public. The proof for that statement is a quote from David Rockefeller, speaking at the June, 1991
    Bilderberger meeting in Baden, Germany (a meeting also attended by then-Governor Bill Clinton and by Dan Quayle):
    “We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years.”

    He went on to explain:
    “It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national autodetermination practiced in past centuries.” http://www.newswithviews.com/McGuire/paul176.htm

    Joe doesn’t realize he’s been dumbed down by a so-called conservative national media. He doesn’t realize that he’s really listening to an Orwellian media that paralyzes him from any intelligent action. Memo to Citizen Joes: Stop relying on dumbed-down national media presstitutes. Joe also doesn’t realize the national media and Hollywood (social engineering inc) has sold him a false view of ‘freedom.’ He thinks freedom is the ability to do whatever you want to do. Wrong Joe. Let’s review Joe.
    Satan’s philosophy of freedom: 1) Do what thou wilt is the whole of the law 2) Do what is right in your own eyes

    God’s View of Freedom:
    1) Therefore, whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets. – Matt. 7:12 (Love your neighbor as yourself; Golden Rule. You want your basic needs met-food, water, clothing, shelter..If you have love you desire this for others as well. Without love we have nothing -1Corin. 13).
    2) He has shown you, O man, what is good; And what does the LORD require of you But to do justly, To love mercy, And to walk humbly with your God? – Micah 6:8 (includes looking out for the interest of others; protecting them from others who mean them harm…)
    3) Ten Commandments (Exodus 20) dealt with: 1. Polytheism 2. Graven Images 3. Swearing 4. Sabbath 5. Obedience to Parents 6. Murder 7. Adultery 8. Theft 9. False Witness 10. Coveting
    4) He offers Security: all the redeemed once saved are kept by God’s power and are thus secure in Christ forever (John 5:24; 6:37–40; 10:27–30; Rom. 5:9,10; 8:1,31–39; 1 Cor. 1:4–9; Eph. 4:30; Heb. 7:25; 13:5; 1 Pet. 1:4,5; Jude 24). It is the privilege of believers to rejoice in the assurance of their salvation through the testimony of God’s Word, which however, clearly forbids the use of Christian liberty as an excuse for sinful living and carnality (Rom. 6:15–22; 13:13,14; Gal. 5:13,16,17,25,26; Titus 2:11–14).
    5) God chastens His own according to His ways for their disobedience. –Hebr. 12:7-8 God’s mercy is beyond knowledge (Psalm 103).
    6) Satan is the great deceiver, murderer and liar from the beginning – John 8:44.
    7) Judges 21:25 shows what happens when nations have disregarded God’s law and substituted “what was right in his own eyes” (21:25) – man’s philosophies inspired by Satan way back in the Garden of Eden (you can be your own god don’t ya know). Whenever people in society at large abandon God’s ways, it results in SOCIETAL CHAOS. This is why America is being judged right now. Satan got ‘Evolution Theory’ into universities way back in the late 1800s (there is no God don’t ya know. Be ur own god).

    WHEREVER FREEDOM HAS EXISTED, THERE HAS ALWAYS BEEN RESTRAINT AT THE SAME TIME. Freedom is the responsibility to do what’s right according to God’s ways.
    Wasn’t it Satan who wanted Creation Fact, prayer, the 10 Commandments, the Bible etc. thrown out of schools? Why? To help institute CHAOS of course. For out of chaos will arise his new world order, the rebuilding of the Tower of Babel. If the nation wins vs. the ruling elitists, will it go back to Satan’s philosophy of freedom? Or to God’s? It’s a choice. The atheists will of course say we don’t need that stinkin Bible. We can devise our own codes of conduct. Oh really! Consider: https://engineering.purdue.edu/~zak/Walt.pdf

    Atheists are so dumbed down, they’ve forgotten that:
    -If there is no intelligence behind the formulation of the universe, why would you expect to find any order in the universe? If you don’t
    have any basis for expecting there to be order in the universe, why would the atheist attempt to look for, or find natural laws?
    -If everything is an outgrowth of a random process, then on what basis do atheists and others talk about Good, Bad, Evil, Right, Wrong, Better, Best, Worse, Worst, Works, Doesn’t Work etc? These words imply a universal value system which atheism has no basis for, since in atheism there are only particulars. In addition, we know from logic that you can never deduce universals from particulars.
    -Why do atheists tell people that they should, ought, must, or need to do anything? All of these words imply a universal value system that the atheist does not have a philosophical basis for?
    -Does the atheist consider he is stealing his value system from the Holy Bible?
    -Why do atheists and others insist that other people should be philosophically consistent, while they go about making claims which are intrinsically inconsistent such as: “There are no absolutes” (are they absolutely sure?); “There are no right and wrongs” (are they sure they’re right?)…When people say, “God is unknowable” or “God cannot be known,” don’t they make self-refuting statements? The only way that someone could say that God’s existence is unknowable is that he knows everything about God. Thus, isn’t their claim that God is unknowable an irrational statement? Yes.

    My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge,
    I also will reject you from being priest for Me; Because you have forgotten the law of your God,
    I also will forget your children. – Hosea 4:6

    RLandry writes: “I can remember, as a young adult, reading Fortune magazine’s stories about the abundance of American dollars flooding the world. Rich Americans and American companies traveling the globe, buying land, foreign corporations,…The dollar was the only true global currency, and was accepted almost anywhere….We, as a country, were rich, generous, and philanthropic. Our ability to innovate, manufacture, and distribute on a global scale was unchallenged! Hell, we would always be the eight hundred pound gorilla on the block, and we used that to our advantage.” https://thecommonsenseshow.com/2014/02/18/i-was-wrong/

    The wicked shall be turned into hell, And all the nations that forget God. – Psalm 9:17
    (WHEN AMERICA BECAME WEALTHY BEYOND IMAGINATION SHE FORGOT THE ONE TRUE GOD. In all likelihood, America will soon be made poor…unfortunately.
    The sample of dates Dave has written about are some of the many details in America’s FORGETTING GOD.)

    36 Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.” – Luke 21:36

    November 22, 1963, JFK murdered by one or all of: Israelis for trying to deny them nuclear weapons, the Rothschilds for printing non-Rothschild dollars, the military-industrial complex for pledging to end the Viet Nam war. The last President who had the nerve to stand up for America, the rest have been globalist puppets at best (like the loser in the WH)..

    August 15, 1971, the Nixon administration took the U.S. off the Gold Standard, setting the Rothschild Fed free to print as many fiat dollars as they wished. Nixon also opened the doors to China, preparing the ground for the Reagan administration to begin union busting and then shipping our industries offshore.

    Also in 1913 the 17th amendment to the Constitution was codified effectively switching our Constitutional Republic to a Representative Democracy.

    Dear Friends, you must be that change you hope to instill. It’s hypocritical to sit in front of the hellevision while simultaneously bitching about brain washing from the controlled media and hollywood.

    TV is the greatest mind control device ever created. The information flows uncontested into your subconscious mind which has been placed into a highly relaxed (receptive) state. Who are the five or six conglomerates controlling the programming?
    Simply search youtube for “TV MIND CONTROL” to view dozens of videos on this topic.

    Strike a hammer blow to that big screen Samsung and deposit neatly into the nearest garbage receptacle.
    Now begin educating those who ask “What! No TV?”

  20. Luis February 19, 2014 at 2:29 pm

    “please step aside and let the real men and women of this country do their job.”

    Dave, who are you trying to wake up? Who or for what are you fighting? The right of women to continue murdering unborn children? The right of homosexuals to marry one another? Or perhaps the right of young people to play their violent, demonic video games or watch satanic types of movies, or watch the likes of Miley Cyrus go around parading her toungue before the world? Many of these people are the very ones who would call someone like you a ‘conspiracy nut’, and will be trying to break into your home to steal your food when things turn bad. Are these the people you are trying to wake up so they can “oppose the imposition of the New World Order”?

    Or perhaps it’s Christians- God’s people you are trying to wake up? But can you tell me just what the difference is between a Christian and a non-Christian? They watch the same movies and TV shows, watch the same competitive sports games and listen to the same secular music as everyone else. They take God’s name in vain, and if they get mad enough, they cuss and will say something like, “pardon my french”. Are these perhaps the people you are fighting for Dave?

    I believe Americans are walking in darkness. They have turned their back on God…. they have sown the wind, and they will reap the whirlwind (Hosea 8:7). I suspect it is God who is going to be giving all these people a much needed wake up call… the rest of us would do well to just stay out of His way.

    Having said all that, I still like this website and reading the articles. They are definitely helping me stay informed about what is really going on.

    You’re forgetting the Act of 1871, creating the corporate UNITED STATE singular and that is defined as a corporation setting up the two tiered justice system we live under as well as the 1933 emergency where the American people were defined as the enemy under the trading with the enemies act from WWI.
    Check the UCC and you’ll find that it’s all about contract, then look at UCC1-308. That’s the key, it puts us back into Common Law where the courts can’t go and where we’re no longer subject to the tyranny of the corporate and banking interest.
    I’d love to see you explore this avenue of thought if you haven’t done so already. Withdrawing our support and insisting that our natural rights be recognized and protected under the common law is the peaceful solution to this problem.

    With Lincoln, The 16th Amendment (Income Tax) and Roe v Wade, I would add the Banking Act of 1933 or 1934, where a perpetual state of emergency was declared, gold turned in and for all essential purposes, suspended the Constitution…could add….Nixon taking us off the Gold standard in 1973…….that’s 17 things that have taken down the USA, could add NAFTA and the NAU, which we really are under..just not announced and toss in GATT/IMF/WTO for good measure…19 things that have taken us down…many on our parents, grandparents and great grandparents watch.

  27. Country Codger February 19, 2014 at 7:30 pm

    Hi Dave,
    I feel like you forgot a very important date, April 19, 1993. On April 19th 1993 it became legal to kill 76 women, men and children, inside a CHURCH because the government (BATF) needed to make a show of an arrest so they could garner millions in government funds.

    In 1977, late July and early August, we (the US), started a war between Libya and Egypt by testing a new and improved version of the Monkey Mountain radar that was used in Vietnam. All you Mickey Mouse guys can attest to this. Then, in 1978, we supported a non-existent rebel in Chad to fight Kadaffi by giving them Soviet made weapons. The local NSA field rep was there to shoot photos and sent them to the House Intelligence committee to show them that the “Soviets” (Americans in Spetznatz uniforms) were arming communist rebels. Then, 90 days Congress authorized French Corps de Strange (our same team of Americans in French foreign Legion uniforms) to go back to Chad and issue American made weapons. This was done just so that NSA could beat the CIA to the hog trough of foreign funding (about 20 million dollars that years). This is how the game is played.

    This is called an inconvenient truth. You may not like it but that does not make it any less true.

    Good luck and God bless you and yours in 2014.

    Ban taxes or start another currency.

  29. Eileen Kuch February 19, 2014 at 9:05 pm

    In 1913, the so-called “Federal Reserve” – in reality, a private, foreign (Rothschilds of London) central bank was established under very suspicious, sinister circumstances.

    And, just to set this matter straight, the 16th Amendment to the Constitution (which established the personal income tax) was NEVER ratified. There are two specific requirements that must be met before there is an Amendment to the Constitution. The first requirement is a 2/3 majority vote in both Houses of Congress; the second is ratification from 3/4 of state legislatures.

    Sorry, David, but the so-called 16th Amendment did not pass muster in the state ratification test; not one state ratified this amendment; thus, the personal income tax is totally ILLEGAL. The Rothschilds of London have been EXTORTING the US taxpayers for 100 years; and, now, it owes us TRILLIONS. The IRS is illegal as well; it’s nothing more than the enforcing arm of the ILLEGAL foreign-owned bank fraudulently named the “Federal Reserve”.

    You wrote: >>And that one thing would have been to outlaw every campaign contribution and lobbying efforts by the corporations…This idea is simple but would have proven effective…<<

    "This idea" would have been useless and completely ineffective. You see the US was lost with the introduction of the "confidential vote" (secret ballot) in the 1870s which eliminated our ability to "verify" the vote. It was the introduction of the "secret ballot" that did us in.

    The vote is simply a "transaction", essentially like any other. For the first hundred years the vote was conducted in the "open" and thus verifiable. "Secrecy" ended that ability to verify the vote.

    At this url: http://howtorescueamerica.org/trilogy.html you'll find a "teaser" article that ran on rense.com in 2007 for an ebook I published on the subject entitled "Desiderata of the Citizen Vote". It documents the key factor of our enslavement and most importantly, WHAT TO DO ABOUT IT. Keep up your good work/mac

    Wow you totally must one of the most important and damaging events of the last half century. You failed to include the Supreme Court illegally deciding the 2000 Presidential election. That decision arbitrarily placed George Bush Jr, in the White House. And it was during his administration that
    so many of the terrible decisions that destroyed the Republic took place. Without the support and participation of the Bush family 9-11 could not have happened.

  34. Mike Lyons February 20, 2014 at 5:17 am

    I have to disagree a bit with point 6. Prayer was never outlawed in the US in any school. It has always been (and still is) legal for anyone to pray in school, whether during, before, or after any class, whether or not school is in session. What has been ruled unconstitutional is officially sanctioned organizational prayer imposed on all. Individuals can pray (or not) as they want, they cannot impose that requirement on others.

    Because younger children could be intimidated by others (especially faculty) leading prayers at scheduled times in favor of one type of religion, ORGANIZED prayer was ruled unconstitutional.

    Otherwise, a fine article.

  35. Don February 20, 2014 at 5:36 am

    Prayer qua prayer was NOT outlawed in classrooms; COERCED prayer was. Is the only type of prayer that is valid one where a person is forced against his or her will to utter it? What does that say about your love of “freedom” if you believe such?

    By the way: Hans-Hermann Hoppe’s argumentation ethics doesn’t even mention a god (and Hoppe is not an atheist).

  36. Jim February 20, 2014 at 6:02 am

    Don’t kid yourself, Dave, it won’t be those blue-helmeted UN troops disarming you, it will be your local LEOs at first and when a few of them get shot up in the process, it will be the US military – you know, the same ones that are invading third-world hellholes and killing people who never did a damn thing to us ‘for our freedoms’. The flag-waving ‘Support Our Troops’ uber-patriots can wimper ‘USA! – USA! – USA!’ all the way to the FEMA camps after they sheepishly hand over their firearms to their ‘heroes’.

    Hi Everybody,

    Isa. 62: 1, 2 also mentions both phases: “For Zion’s sake will I not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest, until the righteousness thereof go forth as brightness, and the salvation thereof as a lamp that burneth. And the gentiles shall see they righteousness, and all kings thy glory: and thou shalt be called by an new name, which the mouth of the Lord shall name.” Jehovah is here the speaker. By Zion He means Christ and the Church, in a sense also including the Great Company as their associates in the invisible phase of the kingdom. For their sake God will not hold His peace, i.e., will not remain inactive, and for Jerusalem’s sake (here the visible phase of the kingdom, the Ancient and the youthful Worthies, is meant) He will not rest, i.e., not cease from doing that which He has determined to do, until the righteousness thereof go forth as brightness, i.e., until the righteousness that Christ and the Church shall work among the children of men shall be so bright and clear, that none will go astray in respect to it, but will see it as a matter that is thoroughly reasonable, thoroughly comprehensible, thoroughly understandable; and the salvation thereof as a lamp that burneth (this lamp is the Word of God. The things that were written in that Word, particularly the writings of the prophets of the Old Testament, including Moses–these, with the writings of the star–members to assist in their interpretation, will at that time be like a lamp burning).

  38. Bob G February 20, 2014 at 6:52 am

    1913 was a VERY bad year for freedom in the U.S. As already noted, we saw the Fed established and the 16th Amendment ratified allowing for direct taxation. We also saw the 17th Amendment ratified, allowing the direct election of Senators rather than their appointment by State legislatures.

    1968 was bad not only for the reason stated above but also for the passage of the Gun Control Act.

  39. BobCat February 20, 2014 at 8:41 am

    Also in 1913, completing the trifecta of killing the United states, was the 17th amendment. Let’s see — 100 years later we get the likes of McNuts, and Ms. Lindsey “representing” their respective states. These guys, and most of the rest, don’t even know why they are in the senate. Don’t take my word for it — ask them. They’ll all say, “we’re representing the people”. Wrong answer — they’re constitutionally charged with representing the interests of their states. The MSM will never mention this, will they?

  40. Roderick T. Beaman February 20, 2014 at 9:53 am

    Far & away, the worst year for American freedom was 1913. Authorization of the Federal Reserve was bad enough but there were also the ratifications of the Thirteenth & Fourteenth Amendments. While I can understand Congress passing the Federal reserve Act and states ratifying the sixteenth Amendment, I can’t for the life of me, figure out what possessed the states to ratify an amendment that stripped them of representation in Washington.

  41. mickey February 20, 2014 at 10:08 am

    No, banning contributions will not work. It can’t for two reasons:
    1. When you “ban” you became the same as the ones you fight. They “ban” your freedom, you “ban” theirs.
    Before you will be dead, your own foundation will be rotten, and you will be the oppressor.

    2. Some other way of buying favors from congress will be found. The problem is that the congress has the power for sell, and you are fool if you think you can stop that from happening.

    I agree with the dirty dozen but not the solution. The best thing is for the union to be dissolved and to come to grip with the fact that the great American experiment failed. It was destined to the moment a gathering to modify the Articles of Confederation was hijacked and a new constitution was the product.
    The beast that the USSA has become can’t be reformed, only destroyed and people given the freedom of how they would like to live. Good luck ’cause that won’t happen voluntarily.

  47. Ukerry February 20, 2014 at 1:21 pm

    Great article by Dave and some good comments. However, It always seem to turn to the bible and what man interprets as its meanings and we all know the thousands of factions and bible interpretations among those who call themselves Christians. In its literal interpretation, the bible can easily be used as a model of control and indoctrination. And here is where people will go into cognitive dissonance and either quit reading or start name calling: infidel, atheist, anti-Christ, etc.
    For some unknown reasons, a person or a group of persons put together a bunch of writings in a book and they called it: the Holy Bible, the word of God. What we now reproach to average citizen Joes, that is, to gulp down things coming from the “official” channels as truth by not asking: Is this true? Or just: Says who? Somehow, we don’t do it when it comes to the bible and we don’t even know who said it was the word of God other than it was said in the writings. Seems like self serving. Could it be so that it could be used as a tool for political control?
    That goes for the old testament. Then the Roman empire got a new group of people together to put a new collection of writings in a book called the new testament and together with the old became what we know as “the holy bible”. It has served as the basis of control ever since justifying a great number of killings called crusades, inquisitions, wars, etc, that still go on today.
    I have copied passages of the comments following the article and put them in italics with my own questions/comments after.

    U Gotta love the national media (the presstitutes) that puts beautiful babes on TV News Shows (entertainment) like Faux, CNN etc. every night to seduce average citizen Joes to gulp down all the horse _____ they peddle
    But we easily gulp down someone’s saying: this is the word of God

    Katherine Graham of the Washington Post in her elitist boasting, “We only tell the public what we want them to know.” That about said it all.
    And the writings were selected as to which one would be included in the holy book.

    But citizen Joe has no idea he’s being fed or brainfilled with horse _____
    And how about us and the bible

    You just don’t tell the saps everything. ONLY WHAT YOU WANT THEM TO KNOW
    You select which writings are included to be in the “book”.

    When they tell your kids, ‘millions and millions of years ago kids, the dinosaurs evolved
    But it is OK to tell them a whale swallowed a guy for three days and he came out a preacher

    That’s brainfilling your kids with what to think
    But tell them they can spend eternity burning in hell if they don’t follow the book.

    You see, there’s a whole lot of things going on out there, in which the media is choosing which things to tell us about, and what not to tell us about. And of the stories they actually do decide to run, they can leave out certain pieces of information so as to shape our view of a particular account that they are telling us about.”
    Already covered

    For you see my friend, you and I now have to live in the jungle these psychopathic sympathizers are helping to create. For if many agree that the national media and Hollywood is pumping out a lot of garbage, who do you think the garbage containers are? You, me, and our kids
    See the bible quotes further down.

    So if people in a society are being filled up with corrupt ideas from educators, the media etc., (ideas about,murder, lying and deception, uncontrolled anger, bitterness.., rape, stealing, sexual immorality,

    Just one example: “But if this charge is true (that she wasn’t a virgin on her wedding night), and evidence of the girls virginity is not found, they shall bring the girl to the entrance of her father’s house and there her townsman shall stone her to death, because she committed a crime against Israel by her unchasteness in her father’s house. Thus shall you purge the evil from your midst”. (Deuteronomy 22:20-21 NAB

    The problem is that there is an absence of leadership
    Maybe the problem is that we are always looking for leadership as if it should be outside of ourselves thus we end up with what we have now and then complain.
    He doesn’t realize that he’s really listening to an Orwellian media that paralyzes him from any intelligent action
    Isn’t that what do we do when we listen to someone who says: this book is the word of God

    Freedom is the responsibility to do what’s right according to God’s ways.
    And we know that because God’s ways is what someone told us is in the bible

    Wasn’t it Satan who wanted Creation Fact, prayer, the 10 Commandments, the Bible etc. thrown out of schools? Why?
    And was it God who wanted them there in the first place? Who is really in charge? God seems to lose a lot of battles.

    Atheists are so dumbed down, they’ve forgotten that…
    Or not dumbed down the same way “believers” are and that’s bad, bad, bad.

    -Why do atheists tell people that they should, ought, must, or need to do anything? All of these words imply a universal value system that the atheist does not have a philosophical basis for?
    Aren’t believers/Christians saying the same things.

    -Does the atheist consider he is stealing his value system from the Holy Bible?
    As do Muslims, Hindus, Incas, and on and on. Why do these values belong to the bible?

    -Why do atheists and others insist that other people should be philosophically consistent, while they go about making claims which are intrinsically inconsistent such as: “There are no absolutes” (are they absolutely sure?); “There are no right and wrongs” (are they sure they’re right?)…When people say, “God is unknowable” or “God cannot be known,” don’t they make self-refuting statements?
    And by the way, atheists don’t have a book to “obey”, they don’t have a unique voice, they are not members of an organized cult.

    Thus, isn’t their claim that God is unknowable an irrational statement?
    Makes sense but is it a rational statement to say that God is knowable?

    Rich Americans and American companies traveling the globe, buying land, foreign corporations…
    And rich Romans and rich Germans and rich Europeans coming to the Americas

    The dollar was the only true global currency, and was accepted almost anywhere
    It still is and has been the cause of most of the evil that is going on today, by force. That’s what an empire is all about.

    We, as a country, were rich, generous, and philanthropic.
    And how much of that richness was taken from other people including when we came from Europe and took over the Americas and late on went on to pillage the oil in the East?

    Hell, we would always be the eight hundred pound gorilla on the block, and we used that to our advantage.”
    And aren’t we still the same gorilla, except that it is now the 2000 pound one? We have military bases all over the world and dictate who should be in power.

    I think we need to stop calling ourselves, we; there are some people who direct things in the name of “we” and do awful things and we just let it happen because we have bought into the notion that we are “special”, “chosen”, the ‘’right ones” or as Putin said: “exceptionalism”. It is not “we”. We rarely act as “we”, we are individuals getting slowly indoctrinated. Didn’t Jesus said: the kingdom is within you, not out there somewhere but within us. What if we just ask: what if?

    Is it possible that both the atheists and the “believers are both wrong; the first rejecting the bible outright (I see why they would) and the latter claiming it to be the “word of God”? What if the bible is writings that are saying things in parables, allegories, etc that have nothing or little to do with what has been said it meant. What if creation and creator are one and the same and we and everything else is it. What if?. It seems to me that man has created god in his image and likeness: a “man” with human feelings. He is benevolent but vengeful, he needs to be worshiped. He has created evil and hell, He is not quite merciful as he will punish people not for a period of time but for eternity. And if he has such power, why doesn’t he confine Satan to this hell of his? Is it possible that we are just here to grow and evolve as part of this evolution of creation?

    Genesis 3:16 Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.

    Genesis 6:7 And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.

    Genesis 2:17 And the LORD plagued Pharaoh and his house with great plagues because of Sarai Abram’s wife.

    “However, you may purchase male or female slaves from among the foreigners who live among you. You may also purchase the children of such resident foreigners, including those who have been born in your land. You may treat them as your property, passing them on to your children as a permanent inheritance. You may treat your slaves like this, but the people of Israel, your relatives, must never be treated this way.” (Leviticus 25:44-46 NLT)

    “When a man sells his daughter as a slave, she will not be freed at the end of six years as the men are. If she does not please the man who bought her, he may allow her to be bought back again. But he is not allowed to sell her to foreigners, since he is the one who broke the contract with her. And if the slave girl’s owner arranges for her to marry his son, he may no longer treat her as a slave girl, but he must treat her as his daughter. If he himself marries her and then takes another wife, he may not reduce her food or clothing or fail to sleep with her as his wife. If he fails in any of these three ways, she may leave as a free woman without making any payment.” (Exodus 21:7-11 NLT).

    “Slaves, obey your earthly masters with deep respect and fear. Serve them sincerely as you would serve Christ.” (Ephesians 6:5 NLT)

    “Christians who are slaves should give their masters full respect so that the name of God and his teaching will not be shamed. If your master is a Christian, that is no excuse for being disrespectful. You should work all the harder because you are helping another believer by your efforts. Teach these truths, Timothy, and encourage everyone to obey them.” (1 Timothy 6:1-2 NLT)

    (Judges 21:10-24 NLT): “So they sent twelve thousand warriors to Jabesh-gilead with orders to kill everyone there, including women and children. “This is what you are to do,” they said. “Completely destroy all the males and every woman who is not a virgin.”

    In Deuteronomy 20:10-14 it states: “As you approach a town to attack it, first offer its people terms for peace. If they accept your terms and open the gates to you, then all the people inside will serve you in forced labor. But if they refuse to make peace and prepare to fight, you must attack the town. When the LORD your God hands it over to you, kill every man in the town. But you may keep for yourselves all the women, children, livestock, and other plunder. You may enjoy the spoils of your enemies that the LORD your God has given you.”

    Deuteronomy 22:23-24 NAB: “If within the city a man comes upon a maiden who is betrothed, and has relations with her, you shall bring them both out of the gate of the city and there stone them to death: the girl because she did not cry out for help though she was in the city, and the man because he violated his neighbors wife.”

    “If a man commits adultery with another man’s wife, both the man and the woman must be put to death”. (Leviticus 20:10 NLT)

    “Whoever sacrifices to any god, except the Lord alone, shall be doomed”. (Exodus 22:19 NAB)

    “They entered into a covenant to seek the Lord, the God of their fathers, with all their heart and soul; and everyone who would not seek the Lord, the God of Israel, was to be put to death, whether small or great, whether man or woman”. (2 Chronicles 15:12-13 NAB) Great reason to go to Iraq or Afghanistan or wherever

    “But if this charge is true (that she wasn’t a virgin on her wedding night), and evidence of the girls virginity is not found, they shall bring the girl to the entrance of her father’s house and there her townsman shall stone her to death, because she committed a crime against Israel by her unchasteness in her father’s house. Thus shall you purge the evil from your midst”. (Deuteronomy 22:20-21 NAB

    Kill People for Working on the Sabbath
    “The LORD then gave these further instructions to Moses: ‘Tell the people of Israel to keep my Sabbath day, for the Sabbath is a sign of the covenant between me and you forever. It helps you to remember that I am the LORD, who makes you holy. Yes, keep the Sabbath day, for it is holy. Anyone who desecrates it must die; anyone who works on that day will be cut off from the community. Work six days only, but the seventh day must be a day of total rest. I repeat: Because the LORD considers it a holy day, anyone who works on the Sabbath must be put to death.” (Exodus 31:12-15 NLT)

    Kill Sons of Sinners
    “Make ready to slaughter his sons for the guilt of their fathers; Lest they rise and posses the earth, and fill the breadth of the world with tyrants.” (Isaiah 14:21 NAB)

    Kill Men, Women, and Children “Then I heard the LORD say to the other men, “Follow him through the city and kill everyone whose forehead is not marked. Show no mercy; have no pity! Kill them all – old and young, girls and women and little children. But do not touch anyone with the mark. Begin your task right here at the Temple.” So they began by killing the seventy leaders. “Defile the Temple!” the LORD commanded. “Fill its courtyards with the bodies of those you kill! Go!” So they went throughout the city and did as they were told.” (Ezekiel 9:5-7 NLT)

    God Kills all the First Born of Egypt And at midnight the LORD killed all the firstborn sons in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn son of Pharaoh, who sat on the throne, to the firstborn son of the captive in the dungeon. Even the firstborn of their livestock were killed. Pharaoh and his officials and all the people of Egypt woke up during the night, and loud wailing was heard throughout the land of Egypt. There was not a single house where someone had not died. (Exodus 12:29-30 NLT)

    Kill Old Men and Young Women Jeremiah 51:20-26).

    God Will Kill the Children of Sinners (Leviticus 26:21-22 NLT)

    You Have to Kill “Cursed be he who does the Lords work remissly, cursed he who holds back his sword from blood”. (Jeremiah 48:10 NAB)

    I respectfully disagree with one comment you made:

    In 1913, the 17th Amendment which saw to it that Senators were now elected by the people is technically not valid. The Amendment was never properly ratified. The reason it is “law” is that Brandies simply “declared” that it had been ratified.

    But researchers have done their studies. At least 2 states did not ratify it. So we have been “electing” senators, a job which really still belongs to State Legislatures if Brandeis had not lied and the People of the United States were not misled.

    1964- THE CIVIL RIGHTS ACT. This act took from the American people the single most important right, save for the basic right to life, that anyone can exercise, and this is the right to FREEDOM OF ASSOCIATION! Without this basic right, all others mean nothing.

    People are Irrevocably STUPID. That is a fact. So even if Americans, by some MIRACLE, managed to obliterate the psychopaths decimating this country (let alone the planet) Once the “shock value” of the Horrific Times wore off, Eventually, Americans would allow all this……… To RISE AGAIN… surviving psycho-sociopaths would finagle, manipulate and murder their way back into power, having learned to better hide their true nature as a result of any purge. And all of THIS would happen again……..

    Humans are incapable of true foresight and only learn after the fact, after the damage is done…then just as quickly forget it all again…

    Jesus said “Pray in the closet.”! The concept of a public school system is one of the 12 planks of the Communist Manifesto! So can you explain why do we need prayer in public schools? Why do we need public prayer? Why do we need public schools? “There! I ran rings around you logically!” – Monty Python, The Penguin Sketch – But seriously, you fundamentalists always leave out key teachings of Christ when it gets in the way of your theocratic agenda! It’s just like when warmongering evangelicals ignore “Blessed are the peacemakers.”, “Love thy enemies and bless those who curse you.” and “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” when it comes to foreign policy! And another thing, “common sense” is subjective! Gun grabbers and tyrants argue that their repressive laws are “common sense”!

    Ukerry: whilst this may not be best forum to dialogue to address your ‘apparent skepticism since it is Dave’s,’ the following may be of help. u’ve already studied these right? for the kinds of things you raise are ‘old news.’ Been raised by countless men over the ages and dismissed satisfactorily. u wouldn’t raise those points w/o doing ZERO research correct? Best Wishes but the priority for us is the eliminated banksters Dave wrote of today

    http://carm.org/ Under Apologetics see: Bible Difficulties; Questions; Skeptics Ask; Apologetic Dialogues

    If it helps, some Usual Objections people bring up:

     Person’s Surface Objection: “Christianity is too narrow.”
    -Person’s Presupposition: (how they suppose the world works)
    “The best religion is one which makes everyone happy and secure. It assures all that everything is ‘going to be all right.’ No religion should offend people by saying that it is the only true religion.”
    -Christian Answers: “Logically, since all religions contradict each other, there are only two options open to us. Either they are all false, or there is only one true religion. That is, either all are false or one is true and the others are false. Truth cannot contradict itself. 1+1 always = 2 and 1+5 is not equal to 2 but = 6. If there is only one God, there will be only one religion. The person who objects is ‘too narrow’ to accept the truth.”
    Do all religions worship the same God? There are no universal, self-evident or intuitive religious truth claims that are embraced by all religions. Since truth claims of religions often contradict each other, all religions can be false or one can be true and all others false, but they cannot all be true.

     Person’s Surface Objection: “I’m an atheist. I do not believe in God.”
    -Person’s Presupposition: They assume that they are competent to come to this position. They feel that there is no deity of any shape, size, or form.”
    Christian Answers: “The only person who can be an atheist is God Himself. To say dogmatically, ‘There is no God!’ requires one to know all things, to be in all places at the same time, and have all power. Thus, you would have to be omniscient, omnipresent, and omnipotent,…i.e., God! Atheism is a theological absurdity. It is self refuting.”

     Person’s Surface Objection: “I can’t believe a loving God would send people to hell!”
    -Person’s Presupposition: God is too good, and man is too good, for God to send man to hell. This person assumes that God thinks, feels, and acts as man does. If I would not send people to hell, neither would God.
    -Christian Answers: God is not a man. Neither does God think, feel, or act as a man would. His ways and thoughts are above ours. The real problem is that this person wants a god created in his own image…a god he can live with comfortably, while sinning. God loves justice, holiness, and righteousness so much that He created hell. The love of God for His own nature, His law, His universe, and His people, makes hell a product of love as well as justice.

     Person’s Surface Objection: “I can’t believe in God. When I see what Hitler did to the Jews…and see all the pain and suffering in the world, I cannot believe there is a God.”
    -Person’s Presupposition: We can make moral condemnation of people, such as Hitler, without an absolute standard of morality and ethics. “God” is not necessary for making moral judgments.
    -Christian Answers: The statement is not logically defensible. If there is no God, there is no absolute standard of morality, and no basis for “justice.” The problem of evil requires the existence of God. It does not negate God. The statement is also unlivable. The existence of God is essential to discern evil, in order to condemn it. Without God, there is no “evil” or “good.”

     Person’s Surface Objection: “Jesus was a good man and a great teacher…that is all he was.”
    -Person’s Presupposition: Jesus was a great human being. No one can deny this…but He was not God or the Christ.
    -Christian Answers: This statement is self-refuting. If Jesus was a good man and a great teacher, then we must accept what He taught about Himself…i.e., that He is God the Son, the Savior of the world. If He is not who He claimed to be, He was either a liar or a lunatic. If he was a liar or a lunatic, he was not a good man or a great teacher!

     Person’s Surface Objection: “All religions are the same. All roads lead to God. They all worship the same God. It is unkind to say that Christianity is the way to God!”
    -Person’s Presupposition: They assume that if there is a God, He does not care what people think of Him, or how He should be worshipped. This “God” never revealed Himself to man, or made His will known. Also, they assume that all religions teach the same doctrines about “God,” “Sin,” “World,” “Man,” and “Salvation.” If they do all teach the same things, Christianity is then only one way among many ways.
    -Christian Answers: God has revealed His own nature, and how He is to be worshipped (in Holy Scripture). Christianity stands unique and apart from all other religions by its doctrines. Each religion has its own “God” or “god.” The Christian Bible, and the religion which flows from it, is the only way to God that God has revealed! Jesus Christ is the only way to God (John 14:6). It is not unkind to tell people the truth lovingly.

     Person’s Surface Objection: “Christianity is a psychological crutch.”
    -Person’s Presupposition: People accept Christianity because it meets some psychological need in them. Thus, it cannot be the true religion.
    -Christian Answers: Christianity is shown to be true because it does meet all the needs of man, including his psychological needs. Since God created man, he knows what man needs. Thus, it is only logical to assume that the religion which God reveals will meet those needs. This position actually proves what it set out to refute.

     Person’s Surface Objection: “If Christianity works for you and makes you feel good, fine…but don’t bug me with it!”
    -Person’s Presupposition: Everyone should do their “thing.” As long a s they don’t bother others, it’s okay. Truth and morality are not important. Only the individual pursuit of pleasure is right!
    -Christian Answers: This is crude selfishness. The Christian’s task is to “bug” others! Hedonistic lifestyles have always led to disaster. Just because something “feels good” does not make it right. Psychotic killers “feel good” as they murder their victims! This position is unlivable.

     Person’s Surface Objection: “I don’t accept the Bible.”
    -Person’s Presupposition: Human autonomy…man starts from himself, by himself, without any outside special revelation. In that condition, man can understand himself and the world around him with all the interrelationships involved. This has always been the vain hope of humanists.
    -Christian Answers: This history of philosophy shows that human autonomy ends in total skepticism. If we start with man, we end in total confusion. Only as we start with God is the universe intelligible. The surface objection does not correspond with reality (See Francis Schaeffer, The God Who is There, Inter-Varsity Press).

     Person’s Surface Objection: “Christianity is not rational or logical.”
    -Person’s Presupposition: Most people actually mean their own “common sense” when they use the words “logic,” or “reason.” They are victims of thinking that reality must be whatever they think it to be. If something is not “logical” to them, they assume it cannot exist.
    -Christian Answers: If you begin with your reason or common sense as the absolute authority, you end in skepticism. Usually the people who make this objection have faulty views of Christianity: i.e., a straw man of their own making. The Christian system is in accord with the Law of Contradiction. (See G. Clark, Religion, Reason, and Revelation (Presbyterian and Reformed Publishing Co.), for a logical demonstration of Christianity).

  55. Kevin Beck February 21, 2014 at 5:19 am

    I would add one other event that occurred in 1913…the creation of the Individual Income Tax, which led to the government being able to take from what people earned. Before that, all the nation’s taxes were based on sales of businesses and on import duties.

    Another thing that happened soon after was converting the states into administrative branches of the Feds, through the direct election of Senators. This eliminated the voice of the state legislatures from having any input into how the nation was governed.

    Great article. I know you can’t cover everything on your list, and perhaps it was in there or someone has already mentioned it, but 1973 and the Supreme Court Legalizing Abortion?

  58. Steve February 21, 2014 at 7:15 am

    I would add 01/22/73, when the SCOTUS brazenly and unconstitutionally assumed they were legislators and legalized abortion.

    Also, the ratification of the 17th amendment, which turned Senators into fundraisers instead of representatives of their states as sovereign entities elected by legislatures as originally provided for in the Constitution.

    1850s The group of communist that helped create the Republicans escaped out of the old world. The individual began to become downgraded as favored subsidized groups were elevated and favored in the law.. A situation that tends to benefit the wealthy. Enslavement to a private individual was ended. Classing, grouping, anti-individual, anti creator eugenics commune group enslavement of the entire population was begun.

The Constitution was replaced with a foreign document omitting the “original” 13th Amendment and exchanging the 14th for it, founding the “Dual citizenship treason” we live under today. Then came the birth of Executive Orders with Lincolns Martial Law and the creation of The District of Columbia as a “Corporatocracy” AKA United States Corp. with another foreign document that completely changed the original organic constitution “for” the united states to the Constitution “of” the United States.(Corp.)

    I was surprised that the Civil War was not included. Had the Confederacy won (States Rights) it would of kept the Feds where they were designed to be. If the people of California want to kill babies through abortion, the people of Pennsylvania would not have to and the list goes on and on.

    This is a good article yet the fact remains that fear mongering is rampant on the internet in alternative “conservative” media. A lot of “evidence” is put out without any basis in truth. Alleged insider sources, gross exageration, phony photos, phony evidence, even outright lies, etc. just give the opposition evidence to portray us as crazy conspiracy freaks. Some of the biggest names in alternative media are guilty of this and there are some people profiting quite nicely from all this fear mongering. We have enough legitimate dangers to face without succumbing to unfounded fears which the enemy can use to their advantage. If anybody needs help in filtering out the garbage I recommend a subscription to Joel Skousen’s World Affairs Brief. It’s well worth the modest cost. He still does not paint a rosy picture of our future yet does a very good job of sorting through all the news and disinformation which is distracting.

    On the POLITICAL OUTCAST website there is a video of a college girl out jogging witnesses across the street said these two fat donut eating Gestapo thug cops grab her and arrest her for jaywalking and then charge her for resisting arrest because she was startled by them grabbing her.We Americans are going to have to grow some balls and stop this bullshit before its to late.

    One Article in the Articles of Confederation, the document of treaty establishing the American Union, most likely could have
    prevented all the evil that has overtaken America. And, that is Article 5 calling for a ‘Committee of the States’ made up of 7 people
    from each State, who were in no wise connected or remunerated by Government, to meet in Congress on the first Monday of every
    year to review the ‘State of the Union’ and to void any legislation contrary to the Constitution, and discipline any Government
    official who was unworthy of trust and obedience to the Constitution. The 7 consisted of two primary committeemen and five
    standbys. This committee was never allowed to be instituted in the mid 1780s, nor was it allowed to be established by the good works
    and leadership of one Roger Elvik of Wisconsin in the early 1980s. Elvik spent 10 years in prison without trial for the charge of sedition,
    a charge originating out of maritime law equating to mutiny onboard a ship. An incorporated body is a make-believe ship/vessel at sea,
    where the captain of the vessel, the CEO or President, is the supreme commander and dictator. Know anyone in Washington, DC
    that fits that description?

    Not to minimize the importance of the Watchman. David, your never ending message is a warning, no doubt. But, what you leave out is the hope. I don’t know what your religious proclivities are, but, in the world of the Christian or, the one that may become one, the hope is everything.

    David said: “Don’t forget that in 1913 the 16th amendment was ratified which codified theft.”

    It was NEVER properly ratified by the states, in spite of the fact that Secretary of State Philander Knox said so. He was not merely in error, but committed fraud when he declared it ratified in February 1913.

    36 states would be needed to ratify at that time; only 21 states properly ratified

    The theft was not even codified. They just decided to tell us to do it and we were stupid enough to comply. They went through some motions, but NEVER ratified the amendment. The rest is history.
