Do you Understand the Charges?

Many of us involved in the “legal reform” movement have understood for most of twenty years that when a judge asks a defendant if “Do you understand the charges against you,” something “funny” is happening.  We believe the judge isn’t merely asking if we comprehend the charges on an intellectual basis.

Instead, we suspect that, by using the word “understand” as a term of art, the judge is actually asking if we agree, consent, or even contract to be subject to the charges claimed by the plaintiff or prosecution.    The implication of this suspicion is that we must agree to “understand” the charges before the judge can proceed.  I.e., if we expressly refuse to “understand” the charges, the court might not be able to proceed against us.

However, even though we’ve “understood” that “somethin’ funny” is goin’ on whenever the court asks “Do you understand the charges?,” I, at least, have not precisly understood what the judge means when he asks that question.

Understand?

Constitutional Elections Summit


November 4: Barack Obama elected President

On May 26th, A.D. 2012, Rudy and Erin Davis hosted a Constitutional Elections Summit at the Fair Park Bible Fellowship Church at Dallas, within The State of Texas.  I was one of the seven speakers.  Several of the speakers (Orly Taitz, Pastor David Manning, etc.) enjoy national recognition.

The Summit’s primary purpose was to explore the constitutionality of Barack Obama’s candidacy.

Although the subject matter might seem primarily “political,” the Summit was every bit as spiritual as an old-time, tent Revival.  The quality of the speakers and the variety of subject matter (“Man or Other Animals,” Imprecatory Prayer; “Birther” issues) made this “Summit” an event of truly national significance.  Unfortunately, only about 70 people attended the Summit.  We’d hoped for more.  But all the speeches were video’d and those videos are already up on the internet and beginning to attract attention.  I am hopeful that these videos (below) receive widespread attention.

“Watching the Watchers”


Internet Privacy

Internet Privacy (Photo credit: o5com)

Here’s a video that explores the internet data mining industry.  It explains  that much of your internet browsing can be tracked by scores or hundreds of anonymous internet entities which seek to create a “profile” of you by following and recording every site you visit.

The implication is that there is no privacy on the internet.

That’s no surprise, but seeing evidence of the lack of privacy is disturbing.

My guess is that there will be a privacy backlash in the next two years that’ll seek to cause laws to be passed to prevent private entities from following us on the internet.  Government agencies, of course, will probably still be allowed to (secretly) monitor us.   In fact, even if laws were passed to prevent government monitoring, I doubt that such monitoring could be truly stopped.

Running From Debt. Running to Gold. Running to Freedom.


English: Statue of a Greek runner by Sir Willi...

Statue of a Greek runner by Sir William Blake Richmond (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

The European Union’s (EU’s) current financial problem was made public by the inability or refusal of the Greek people to repay the debts incurred by their government.  Greece owed a “mere” $500 billion—a big sum for Greece, but a triviality for the EU.  The entire $500 billion could’ve been forgiven and absorbed by the EU.  However, if the EU agreed to forgive Greece’s debt, they’d be forced to also forgive the debts of Ireland, Portugal, Spain, Italy and perhaps France.  The result would be an EU where no one expected to pay their debts.

Therefore, Greece’s relatively small $500 billion debt had to be largely enforced—not merely to maintain the integrity of the EU—but to insure that all debtors understood and agreed that they must repay their debts.

The relatively small problem with Greece was magnified by the fact that all creditors—including the EU, itself—depend on their debtors’ willingness to repay their debts.   If Greece were allowed to repudiate all of its “sovereign” (governmental) debt, the EU might fragment and even the global economy might be collapsed.

The EU (and arguably, the New World Order) ultimately depend on the world’s willingness to not only repay their debts, but remain in the status of debtors.

No Good Song Goes Unpunished


English: A standard household claw hammer.

A Tennessee high school football coach wrote the following song.

Actually, the song’s not bad.  It’s at least amusing.  But it was not politically correct.

The coach was reportedly fired.

The Truth About War


Viet Nam War Memorial

When we think of war, we think of the unfortunates who died, or were maimed, injured, disfigured.  But as this video suggests, the people who survive a war, especially those who killed others, are also often wounded in ways that might not show, but can be even more permanent than than a lost leg.

This video captures a measure of truth that discredits the belief that there was ever a truly reasonable justification for Viet Nam, Iraq, or Afghanistan.  Who won those wars?  I guarantee that it’s not the soldiers who fought them.  Munitions manufacturers might’ve won.  Bankers might’ve won.  New World Order politicians might’ve won. But the people who did the actual fighting, killing and dying–on both sides–lost.

The truth about war found in the following video is not the only truth.  Some people may thrive in war.  But for most people, war is hardly heroic, usually horrific–and, at bottom, so damnably stupid that you have to wonder what th’ Hell compels us to go back and do it again, again, and again.

There is something about mankind that seems compelled to engage in war.

How th’ Hell can one generation after another be so stupid and self-destructive?  We go to war in hope of becoming a “man”.  But as often as not, we come home a cripple.   Why can’t the last generation of “warriors” warn the next generation about the absurdity of going to war in someone else’s country?  We keep clinging to the lie that war is somehow good or heroic when, in fact, as Marine General Smedley Butler once observed “War is a racket”.  At best.

When do we tell the kids that fight our wars that they’re not “fighting for our freedoms”–they’re just fighting for our bankers?

Waiting for Another 1:1 Moment

This interview was shot 18 May 2012. Adam Fleming, Chairman of Wits Gold and Fleming Family & Partners, discusses the gold bull market with GoldMoney’s James Turk.

There’s a great deal to learned from this interview, but one of the most extraordinary insights involves the relationship between the price of gold and the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA).  According to Adam Fleming, during previous economic recessions and/or depressions over the past century, the price of gold and the DJIA came into a 1:1 relationship on several occasions.  For example, in the 1930s, the DJIA fell to 34 and the price of gold was $32.  When gold peaked at $800/ounce circa A.D. 1980, the the DJIA was also about 800.  At such times, one ounce of gold could buy one “share” of the DJIA.
