'Do Not Trust The Medical Or The National Security Establishment!' With Guest Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
Nephew of President John F. Kennedy, son of Robert F. Kennedy, and tireless crusader against the tyranny of the mainstream medical establishment, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. joins today's Liberty Report to discuss his startling discoveries about who really killed his father and uncle...and why. Plus, Mr. Kennedy, an environmental lawyer, has been among the most vocal and most successful opponents of the mainstream medical establishment, driven by big Pharma to inoculate and medicate everything that moves. He tells the Liberty Report how he very reluctantly decided to dedicate his career to fighting the mandatory vaccines that have resulted in so many documented injuries to the recipients.

A California mega-church has refused to buckle under the tyrannical governor's orders to limit attendance to 100 people. On Sunday, between 6-7,000 worshipers showed up and attended services. Also today: Florida sheriff says 'no masks!" A post-apocalyptic UK conference. Epidemic versus 'case-demic.' And a new MIT article suggests community immunity is preventing coronavirus spread in US.

Every person is endowed with individual liberty. That is, the ability to choose, to select, to prefer, to believe, and to act. Over time, a person's outward life and circumstances will reflect the choices that were (and currently are) made.
In other words, with individual liberty comes responsibility. With the choice (cause) comes the circumstance (effect). That's the setup, like it or not.
There are two major pitfalls that a person can succumb to once they start to live in this world of cause and effect. First, is the desire to try to ditch one's individual liberty and responsibility. In other words, to try to pass it off onto someone else.
The second pitfall complements the first one. It's the desire to try to assume responsibility for another person's life. That is, to try to dictate how others should live, and then attempt to enforce those dictates with violence.
When it comes to man-made problems, these two pitfalls are perhaps the overriding cause of most of them.
Of course, there are natural disasters, diseases and accidents; and no individual is all-knowing, so stuff happens in life.
But so many of the problems that people hoot and holler about on a daily basis extend from either trying to ditch their liberty and responsibility, or from the dictates that come from busy-bodies that try to live for everyone else in addition to themselves.
Some try to ditch their lives; others try to re-make the world by living for others. The blind lead the blind, and they all fall into the ditch.
Meanwhile...Those who accept the setup of life, who accept that they have freedom and are responsible for it, and who accept that they cannot live or dictate for anyone else, are caught in the middle of this. These individuals are always in the hated minority.
The longer that the power/dependency relationship lasts, the crazier everything gets.
The tyrants begin to think of themselves as God. How many times throughout history has that happened? Meanwhile, those who have faith in the tyrants begin to believe it as well!
Of course, the whole thing is a fantasy, with disastrous real-world consequences.
In order to keep the fantasy going, all acknowledgment of the truth starts to fade away. The truth is thrown overboard in order to keep it going just a little while longer.
The fantasy must be kept afloat with a constant stream of lies. To rule is to rule over an empire of lies. The bigger the empire, the bigger the lies.
Since The United States government discarded its founding principles and became the biggest empire to ever exist, it necessarily means that Americans believe an extraordinary number of lies; whether it be about the past, about the present, and about what they can expect from government in the future.
The truth is starting to break through the cracks though, and that may be why we're seeing the tremendous ramping up of authoritarianism.
Many Americans are starting to come to grips with the nature of the fantasy. With widespread information-sharing on the Internet, and with a President that has repeatedly blown the whistle on fake news, it's not as shocking anymore to many Americans to realize something is seriously wrong.
Large numbers are coming to grips with the fact that they've been routinely lied to through government schools; and then those lies are reinforced as they get older through media, movies, TV, radio, etc.
Granted, many Americans don't know what to do about it, but the realization is spreading rapidly.
The one-size-fits all Corona lockdown disaster has only added to the realization. Never in the history of the world have governments reacted like this to a virus. Never have they taken a steamroller to society and economic life in this manner.
Again, many Americans don't know what to do about this, but the realization that something is seriously wrong is spreading rapidly.
In this environment, all types of ideologues will try to capitalize. They will convince themselves that this is their time and opportunity to usher in their utopias.
Astoundingly, even the totally disproven and discredited promises of Socialism have reared their ugly head again. As if the 1900's were not enough death and destruction for mankind to tolerate.
Socialism encapsulates the two aforementioned pitfalls perfectly. For the individual, it's total subservience to the Socialist master(s). For the Socialist master(s), it's the fantasy of total micromanagement of all human life.
God and independent free individuals have been replaced in this fantasy by a bunch of egomaniacs and their desire to move around human pawns.
The fantasy is a nightmare.
Fortunately, the truth is always the final arbiter and will prevent such a nightmare from becoming a final reality. But lots of damage has been done and can continue to be done in the meantime.
On this corner of the Internet, the message is simple:
Live and Let Live.
Accept the setup of life. Every person is endowed with individual liberty. One can't ditch it, or assume it for anyone else. To attempt to do so, is to bring a severe amount of hurt and pain to oneself.
The ideas of Liberty are far superior to the ideas of dependence and power. You're the captain of your individual ship and others are the individual captains of their own ships.
How cool is that?
The alternative is mass death. Hundreds of millions died (not including in wars) at the hands of their own Socialist governments in the 1900's. Americans may not know which way to turn at the moment, but that's definitely not the way to go!
Let's chart a new course of living our own individual lives by keeping our hands off other people and their stuff.
Let's do voluntary interactions.
Let's respect private property.
Let's end the Federal Reserve and return to sanity with sound money.
Let's live a little bit.
Will presidential hopeful Joe Biden choice of a pro-war authoritarian as his running mate give him the edge over Trump? Is there any issue Kamala Harris is not terrible on from a libertarian point of view? But there is good news out of Washington: President Trump has chosen a new coronavirus advisor who opposes lockdowns and believes the virus is actually under control. Will Fauci start packing his bags?
Across the United States authoritarians are clamoring for a return to lockdown over what they claim is a resurgence of coronavirus infections. Despite the data not supporting that conclusion, they want to shut the economy down and further destroy life in the US. They point to Europe's success with lockdowns - even as there appears to be a resurgence of cases in Europe. What is most shocking and striking is that no one in authority in the US is calling for us to emulate the one country that appears to have beat the virus thus far: Sweden. Why can't they even utter the word "Sweden"?

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has proposed the next multi-trillion dollar "coronavirus relief” spending bill that will support testing, tracing, treatment, isolation, and mask policies that have been part of a “national strategic plan” she has been advocating. The Trump administration is not opposing Pelosi’s plan on principle. Instead, it is haggling over the price.
But, even if the strategic plan could be implemented at little or no monetary cost, it would still impose an unacceptable cost in lost liberty.
Pelosi’s plan will lead to either a federal mask mandate or federal funding of state and local mask mandate enforcement. Those who resist wearing masks could likely be reported to the authorities by government-funded mask monitors. We can label this the “Stasi” approach to health policy, after the infamous East German secret police force.
Contact tracing could lead to forcing individuals to download a tracing app. The app would record where an individual goes and alert authorities that an individual has been near someone who has tested positive for coronavirus.
The strategic plan could eventually include Bill Gates' and Anthony Fauci’s suggestion that individuals receive “digital certificates” indicating they are vaccinated for or immune to coronavirus. A certificate would be required before an individual can go to work, to school, or even to the grocery store. The need to demonstrate vaccination for or immunity to coronavirus in order to resume normal life would cause many people to “voluntarily” receive a potentially dangerous coronavirus vaccine.
The Trump administration has already spent billions of dollars to support efforts of companies to develop a coronavirus vaccine. Policymakers have stated that once a vaccine is developed it will be rushed into production and onto the market. Supporters of expediting production and use of a vaccine should remember the 1976 swine flu vaccine debacle. The swine flu vaccine was rushed into production in response to political pressure to “do something.” The result was a vaccine that was more of a danger than the flu.
Unfortunately, those who raise legitimate concerns regarding the safety of vaccines are smeared as “conspiracy theorists.” This is the equivalent of stating that anyone who dares criticize our interventionist foreign policy “hates freedom” and is probably a “terrorist sympathizer.”
The coronavirus panic has given new life to the push for a unique patient identifier. The unique patient identifier was authorized in 1996, but appropriations bills since 1998 have contained a provision forbidding the federal government from developing and implementing the identifier. Unfortunately, two weeks ago, the House of Representatives voted to repeal the ban. The unique patient identifier would aid government efforts to track and vaccinate every American, as well as to infringe in other ways on liberty in the name of “health.”
Politicians and bureaucrats cannot eliminate a virus any more than they can eliminate terrorism. What they can do is use terrorism, a virus, and other real, exaggerated, or manufactured crises to expand their power at the expense of our liberty.
Politicians will never resist the temptation to use crises as excuses to gain more power. Therefore, it is up to those of us who know the truth to spread the message of liberty and grow the liberty movement, A strong liberty movement is the only thing that can force the politicians to stop stealing our liberty while promising phantom security from terrorists and viruses.
A Nashville, TN councilwoman has proposed charging anyone not wearing a mask with either murder or attempted murder. Is it any wonder violence, anger, and fear is spreading even as coronavirus deaths continue to decline? Why are they doing this? Also today, dentists report a surge in cavities and gum disease among people wearing masks. Kansas health official busted faking charts to falsely inflate effectiveness of mask-wearing. Big motorcycle rally in South Dakota - no masks!

Judy Shelton, a Trump nominee to the Fed Board of Governors, may not have coined the excellent term "Fed bug," but she used it to delicious effect in this 2019 Financial Times interview:
“People call me a goldbug, and I think, well, what does that make them? A Fed bug,” she says.
Can anyone the New York Times attacks this dishonestly be all bad?
For our purposes, Fed bugs are people with a faith-based belief in the power of central banks (and central bankers) to engineer economic growth using "monetary policy," despite decades of history and current evidence to the contrary. They believe tinkering with inputs and rates and velocity and flows somehow makes us richer in terms of productivity, goods, and services. They believe in financial alchemy, as economist Nomi Prins puts it, rather than precious metals. They believe paper has value so long as government issues it and legislates its use. Most of all, they believe in technocratic control over money in the economy.
Central bankers almost by definition are Fed bugs, but so are most monetary economists, financial journalists, and politicians. And they all hate gold with a passion. The reasons why are multifarious, but ultimately flow from their fundamental resentment of any money they do not control and cannot design. Central planning requires central money, and gold stands apart by its very decentralized nature. It is indifferent to human conceptions, and can be discovered and summoned from the earth only with tremendous risk and effort. It cannot easily be manipulated or destroyed, and its value cannot be decreed (though they try mightily). It is unchanging, unyielding, and stubbornly at odds with the political visions of Fed bugs.
And so they hate it.
They hate gold because it never goes away and never goes to zero. It holds monetary value intrinsically, without the imprimatur of a sovereign or government. Gold does not need the state or its bankers to operate as money, because individuals choose it as money on the market century after century.
Even after more than a century of political efforts to erase gold's status as money, the public still views it as such. Gold quietly serves as a lingering rebuke of the entire political fiat money project—even as central banks are forced by circumstances to buy and hold it as collateral, as the ultimate hard currency and liquid asset for their balance sheets. In fact, central banks steadily bought or repatriated huge amounts of physical gold in recent years, despite the supposedly strong world economy prior to the covid crisis.
During the transitional period leading up to the full adoption of the euro across the twelve original eurozone countries, Germans in particular secreted away millions of Deutschmarks in mattresses, closets, and safety deposit boxes. More than a decade after the euro came into widespread use, Germans still held €6.6 billion(!) in unconverted Deutschmark notes and coins according to the Bundesbank. The reason for this is very simple: those Germans distrusted, and continue to distrust, the stability and purchasing power of the euro. They fear a crisis, however unlikely, and protect themselves by holding a "harder" currency in case the euro depreciates rapidly someday.
In other words, they prefer "buying" peace of mind by holding Deutschmarks to converting them to euros and buying goods or services. In the same way and for the same reasons, more and more Americans prefer exchanging some of their paper US dollars for physical gold.
And yet the media campaign against gold continues. With Congress ordering magical fiscal bailouts from the Treasury, Trump conjuring up continued $600 weekly unemployment payments by executive order, and the Fed adding assets of every dubious stripe to its swollen $7 trillion balance sheet, gold prices predictably spiked to over $2,000 per ounce last week. Right on schedule, Fed bug journalists respond with a litany of "Gold is foolish, don't buy it!" articles. In fact they sound like real estate agents in reverse: there is never a good time to buy. Gold goes up relative to the dollar; it's overpriced and poised for a big fall. Gold falls below $1,100, as it did in 2015? See, we told you this worthless shiny metal was headed down!
We rarely see this level of media vitriol and meta-analysis directed toward, say, the latest pump and dump medical device stock duping day traders on Robinhood. The share price of bankrupt Hertz car rental goes from $20 to 80¢ and back up to $5 in a matter of a few months with little public ire or fanfare. And yet gold, the hated and denounced relic of late night Fox News infomercials, outperformed equity markets over the last fifteen years despite its monetary rather than investment status.
Gold is still here. FDR attempted to ban its private ownership and force conversion into dollars in 1933; Nixon eliminated the right of foreign governments to redeem US dollars for gold in 1971. Both men acted without Congress; both knew what their actions meant for savers and inflation. But gold has not faded away, if anything it grows in importance as fiscal and monetary policy across the West becomes increasingly unmoored.
Here is what Ludwig von Mises had to say about gold as real money one hundred years ago:
What the United States needs is not the gold-exchange standard but the Classical gold standard, decried by the inflationists as orthodox. Gold must be in the cash holdings of everybody. Everybody must see gold coins changing hands, must be used to having gold coins in his pockets, to receiving gold coins when he cashes his pay check, and to spending gold coins when he buys in a store.
What a wonderful vision, and not an impossible one. Uncle Sam and virtually all Western nations have embarked on a campaign of money creation unlike any time in human history. Where it all leads, and how long it lasts, cannot be predicted. But a global currency crisis, precipitated by a falling US dollar and finally arriving here at home, is hardly unthinkable. At that point we may see a new supranational currency created, or we may see a flight to known commodity money like gold. When the day comes you might want some gold coins jangling in your pocket, or at least some gold-backed zeros glowing in your digital accounts.
This article was originally published at The Mises Institute.
Politicians and Central Bankers attempt to do the impossible. They believe that with dictates and counterfeit money they can control the economy. The reality is the exact opposite. They only destroy the economy. Is it any wonder that the ultimate international money - Gold - has hit all-time highs in terms of The Fed's debased dollars? Gold has no ties to any politician or central banker. It is a source of independence. More and more people are wanting that kind of independence.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is desperately begging rich people to return to the state and to New York City. He's killed off the old people by sending Covid patients into nursing homes and he's killed off the economy by shutting down, but he's offered to cook a meal for any rich person who returns to the burned out shell of the former great city. Any takers? Plus in today's Report: LA Mayor: "Want to party? Try it without any electricity or water!" Houston begs people to get Covid tested after new "cases" continue to fall. And Sweden has advice on how to open schools. Should we listen to success?
