Onebornfree's Special Scam Alerts [no.20] - Oct. 29th 2017

"The kind of man who wants the government to adopt and enforce his ideas is always the kind of man whose ideas are idiotic" H.L. Mencken

 "My first rule- I don't believe anything the government tells me- nothing!- ZERO!" George Carlin

The Opioid "Crisis" Scam:

"...16,651 people died of opioid overdoses in 2010. The Washington Post and 60 Minutes report, according to Rannazzisi, “the opioid crisis was allowed to spread -- aided by Congress, lobbyists, and a drug distribution industry that shipped, almost unchecked, hundreds of millions of pills to rogue pharmacies and pain clinics providing the rocket fuel for a crisis that, over the last two decades, has claimed 200,000 lives.”

That’s 10,000 people a year. Significant, but small potatoes, compared to alcohol. According to the Center for Disease Control, from 2006 to 2010, an average of 88,121 people died each year from alcohol consumption. ........."

"Big Pharma Makes Drugs that Please Regulators, Not Customers":

"...The government has created and overseen the creation of every step in the development of this crisis. The fact that crony capitalists have taken advantage of the situation should not be a surprise, especially when it is the only way to legally participate in the pharmaceuticals "market."

The Cashless Society Scam:

"Threats to Digital Wealth Point to Need for Tangible Backup "

"Recent high-profile cyber security breaches at Equifax and other financial institutions highlight the perils of an all-digital economy. When wealth can be evaporated or expropriated at the stroke of a key, how secure can your finances really be?"

The Federal Reserve Scam [ or, the "Mild Inflation is Good/Necessary" Scam]

"The Latest Innovation in Inflation Targeting "

".......And now, with inflation closing in on 2%, the easy money crowd has done exactly what I expected and trotted out phase II: the new target is to average 2%. In other words since we were below 2% for so long, a rise to 3% or 4% for a while is somehow desirable...."

The  Fake Money Scam:

"Japan: The Land That Forgot Time Forgot"

"....The whole idea is preposterous. What dopey jackass first came up with the idea that you could improve a market economy by feeding it fake money?

Can you make a horse run faster by giving it fake oats?

Can you get more mileage out of your car by diluting the gas with water?......"


The Socialism/Communism/ Collectivism Scam

"The plot to overthrow America—oh, that’s just a fantasy":

"...“Of course, we know that these radical students are not going to take over the government. What they are going to do is provide the excuse for the government to take over the people, by passing more and more repressive laws to ‘keep things under control’.”

“The radicals make a commotion in the streets while the Limousine Liberals at the top in New York and Washington are Socializing us. WE ARE GOING TO HAVE A DICTATORSHIP OF THE ELITE DISGUISED AS A DICTATORSHIP OF THE PROLETARIAT.”

“The poor are merely pawns in the game…only those who understand that the Establishment’s game plan is SOCIALISM understand what is going on before their very eyes.”

Does that excerpt from “None Dare Call It Conspiracy,” written in 1971, sound familiar today? Of course it does. It reflects the same old strategy of pressure applied from both the top and bottom. ..........."

 The Collective Conciousness Scam:

"Collective consciousness: con job for the ages":

"Individual power. Your power............Therefore, it stands to reason that colleges and universities would be teaching courses in INDIVIDUAL POWER. As soon as I write that, though, we all fall down laughing, because we understand the absurdity of such a proposition. Can you imagine Harvard endowing a chair in Individual Power? Students would tear down the building in which such courses were taught. They’ve been carefully instructed that the individual is the greatest living threat to the planet. If you can’t see that as mind control, visit your local optometrist and get a prescription for glasses. So we have this astonishing situation: the very basis of freedom has no reflection in the educational system....."

The Classical Liberal/ Limited Government Scam

[obf sez: I used to be a "classical liberal", or "libertarian, myself.  Now look at me :-) ]

'The Fatal Error of Classical Liberalism"

"The fatal error of classical liberals lies in their failure to realize that their ideal is theoretically impossible, as it contains the seed of its own destruction, precisely to the extent that it includes the necessary existence of a state (even a minimal one), understood as the sole agent of institutional coercion.

Therefore, classical liberals commit their great error in their approach: they view liberalism as a plan of political action and a set of economic principles, the goal of which is to limit the power of the state while accepting its existence and even deeming it necessary. However, today (in the first decade of the 21st century) economic science has already shown:

    that the state is unnecessary;
    that statism (even if minimal) is theoretically impossible; and
    that, given human nature, once the state exists, it is impossible to limit its power.........."

The Missile Defense Scam:

"Mutual Assured Destruction"

".....An Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) travels at 5,000 meters per second. By way of comparison a bullet fired from a rifle travels at about one fifth that speed. Imagine two men with rifles standing a mile apart and firing their weapons in an attempt to have the bullets meet head on. Multiply the speed by five if one is referring to missiles, not bullets. Even using the finest radars and sensors as well as the most advanced guidance technologies, the variables involved make it much more likely that there will be a miss than a hit. Cirincione observes that “…the only way to hit a bullet is if the bullet cooperates.”

Second, the tests carried out by the Pentagon to determine reliability are essentially fraudulent. ..........."

The F.B.I. Scam:

"FBI Releases Docs On Sandy Hook Showing Feds Visited Shooter BEFORE Massacre "

"Lanza was carrying weapons which nearly weighed more than he did. "

".......One such question that arises from our brief combing of the documents is how Lanza, who only weighed 85 lbs, according to the report, was able to carry such heavy weaponry and ammo and shoot with such deadly accuracy...."

"The FBI’s Forgotten Criminal Record"

The War On Terror Scam:

"...Former Texas Congressman Ron Paul weighed in on the situation, and noted that this appears to be one more war the U.S. is fighting without approval from Congress—and it is a war that includes the presence of U.S. troops in 53 out of the 54 nations in Africa.

“Now, when the Pentagon and the administration have had some pressure on them, you know, instead of having 100 people there, they’re admitting we have 6,000 people in Africa, and they even put a number on it. They say ‘we have some military in 53 of the 54 countries in Africa.’ ..." :

"Pentagon Expands ‘Terror War’ To Africa: Where Is Congress?"

The Economic and Investment Predictions Scam:

"The Order of The Financial System Is About To Be Turned Upside Down"

"I'm not a big fan of bonds right now," may seem like an odd way for the so-called Bond King to begin, but in an audience at Vanity Fair's Establishment Summit, DoubleLine's Jeff Gundlach told Bethany McLean, "I haven’t been really [a fan of bonds] for the past four years, even though I manage them, and institutions have to own them for various reasons."

Gundlach urged investors to be “light” on bonds. As Vanity Fair's William Cohan reports, Gundlach admitted “I’m stuck in it,” of his massive bond portfolio, adding that interest rates have bottomed out and been rising gradually for the past six years......"

"A Cynic’s Guide to Crypto Investing":  "........don’t put money into cryptocurrencies unless you either: (a) know what you’re getting into or (b) are willing to say goodbye to it. Preferably both… "

Obf sez " Do Not"Invest"In Bitcoin! [Or:How to Safely Profit With Bitcoin Etc.] "

The Ronald Reagan Scam

"The Legacy of Reagan’s Civilian ‘Psyops’"

The Marriage License Scam:

"Getting the State Out of Marriage"

The DEA/War On Some Drugs Scam:

"Landmark Study Shows Psychedelics Far More Effective at Reducing Crime Than Police"

"......pioneering clinical trials found that magic mushrooms heal mental illness like a “surgical intervention.” Advanced cancer patients have “experienced immediate and dramatic reductions in anxiety and depression, improvements that were sustained for at least six months.” Psychedelics can treat addiction, ADHD and PTSD, and can replace years of depression therapy. Alongside medical cannabis, psychedelics can arguably solve the opioid epidemic. Now, research is showing the positive effects of psychedelic use on social dynamics—by reducing criminal behavior. Researchers surveyed 480,000 people to produce some eye-opening results........"

The Technocracy Scam:

"The Dream of Technocracy - Why Big Oil Conquered The World":

The Elon Musk/ Electric Car Scam

"Why Won’t They Send me a Tesla to Test Drive?"

My Music/Songs:
