Nobody’s in Control!

In the A.D. 1992 movie, A Few Good Men, Jack Nicholson played Marine Colonel Nathan Jessep.  When confronted in court by the Navy defense lawyer played by Tom Cruise, Col. Jessep shouted, “You want the truth?! . . . .  You can’t handle the truth!

Jessep’s line became an instant classic and, today we’re still wondering whether We the People can, or can’t, “handle the truth”.  Government thinks we can’t handle the truth and therefore lies to us.  But, does government really protect us by shielding us from the truth?  Or, does the government protect itself and condemn ordinary Americans by denying our access to the truth?

I’m inclined to believe that the American people can handle the truth.  I believe that, inevitably, people must handle the truth.  Still, I have to admit that I also have my doubts.  In any case, I believe that all lies are only temporary and sooner or later, people will be forced to “handle the truth” whether they like it or not.

Hyperinflation—Calamity or Opportunity?

Jim Rickards, editor of Strategic Intelligence, recently published an article entitled Buffet Takes a Page From the ‘Inflation King’s’ Playbook”. 

In that article Rickards compares the apparent investing strategy of today’s Warren Buffet—one of the two or three most successful investors of our time—to that of Hugo Stinnes—the wealthiest investor and industrialist in Germany during the 1920s.

According to Rickards,


“Both Stinnes and Buffet were ultra-wealthy investors whose opinions were eagerly sought on important political matters, who exercised powerful behind the-scenes influence, and who seemed to make all the right moves when it came to playing markets.”


Stinnes achieved much of his spectacular wealth by accurately anticipating the Weimar Republic’s hyperinflation of 1922-1923 and investing accordingly.  Based on his seemingly miraculous success, Stinnes was dubbed Germany’s “Inflation King”.

State-licensed Marriages–or “Marriage Relationships”?

A man named “John” heard me talking on a recent radio show about my divorce in A.D. 1983.  He contacted me by email to discuss his own, current divorce predicament and see if I could offer any insights.  Here’s my response:


Hi John,

Marriage and divorce were a primary focus of my life in the 1980s and early 1990s. My A.D. 1983 divorce nearly killed me.  Really.  I lost everything but my pulse.  Put me in a depression that lasted five years.  Three years going to bottom; two more years coming back up to a point where I could fake being normal.  I never really got over it.  But I learned to accept it, live with it.  I don’t think about much today.

My point is that divorce issues are no longer fresh in my mind and I no longer have much to say about it.

I will say this:  After my divorce in A.D. 1983, I began to study the relevant law intently, obsessively.  I learned a lot, but I never learned enough.

However, I knew a man in the 1990s who also went through divorce and studied that affliction in greater depth then I had.  Never actually met the man.  Corresponded by letters and some phone calls.  I haven’t talked to him in 20 years.  I don’t recall his name.  But his research indicated that the modern “marriage” is not a Godly “marriage” wherein one man and one woman become one flesh.  In other words, a Godly marriage includes only two earthly entities:  you and your spouse (one man and one woman) that become “one flesh” that was realnot a fiction.

The Government of Greece is here. It’s Bankrupt. Get Used to It.

Not True. The Greek Bankruptcy is not “coming soon”–it’s already arrived.

The Financial Times recently discussed the Greek financial situation in “Tsipras Letter Reveals Precariousness of Greece’s Finances”:


“Greek Prime Minister, Alexis Tsipras, wrote a letter to IMF head, Ms. Lagarde, warning that the IMF repayment would be missed unless the European Central Bank immediately raised its curbs on Greece’s ability to issue short-term debt.”


Ohh, like that’s going to work.

Who, in their right mind would lend more money to Greece?

Long-term, short-term, mid-term—Greece cannot, and therefore will not, pay its debts.

“Raising the curbs on Greece’s ability to issue short-term debt” makes about as much sense as Congress passing a law that allows me to fly by flapping my arms.  If it were legal for me to fly by flapping my arms, I still couldn’t fly.  Even if it’s legal for Greece to sell more short-term debt, who’d be dumb enough to buy it?

Preserving Government’s Capacity to Spy on Americans

Last week, the Huffington Post reported in “Loretta Lynch: ‘I Am Very Concerned’ For Americans If A Key Section Of The Patriot Act Expires,” that:


“Earlier this month, the House of Representatives passed the USA Freedom Act, which would reform aspects of the Patriot Act and put an end to the government’s bulk collection of phone records.

Section 215 [of the Patriot Act] has been the legal basis for the intelligence community’s bulk metadata collection.

“U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch said she’s ‘very concerned‘ about what could happen if section 215 of the Patriot Act, set to expire June 1, is not reauthorized by Congress.

“My biggest fear is that we will lose important eyes on people who have made it clear that their mission is to harm American people here and abroad,” Lynch said in an interview with CBS.


By “people who have made it clear that their mission is to harm the American people,” does Mz. Lynch mean only foreign terrorists, or does she also include the federal government–which is certainly bound to “harm the American people” by depriving us of our rights and liberties?

Mysterious Ways

Dr. Kent Hovind [courtesy Google Images]

Dr. Kent Hovind may be the single most effective, modern advocate for belief in the Creation concept seen in Genesis 1 of the Bible.  He’s spent most of the past ten years in prison for violations of the Internal Revenue Code.  I can’t prove it, but I have little doubt that Dr. Hovind’s advocacy of Creationism played a big part in causing him to be imprisoned for most of a decade.

I interviewed Dr. Hovind on radio last January and February and also published two articles concerning his trials and tribulations at Kent Hovind’s Spiritual War, and Welcome to the Best Legal System in the World.

Dr. Hovind should’ve already been released, but the government kept him in prison in anticipation of another trial that should’ve happened today.  Today’s trial threatened to cause Dr. Hovind to be sentenced to another 20 years–which would probably have been a death sentence.  Again, I have little doubt that a fundamental reason for trying to keep Kent in prison for another 20 years is found in his advocacy of Creationism.  To great extent, Dr. Hovind has been and remains a “political prisoner” in a spiritual war.

However, yesterday, I heard that three of the remaining four charges against Dr. Hovind had been dismissed and so he only faces criminal contempt of court.  Today’s trial has been canceled.
