FREEDOM! part 2 by Adam Kokesh. Is this the most important book ever written? It may be.  I explore 4 harsh truths that will jolt you awake.

Do you have the "Government Flu"?  Mr. Kokesh explains this social construct and how it infests our culture. It's time for your mind to explode!! Enjoy.

Schmidt Happens Rant: A Time To Stand

June 4th, 2014

I read a piece by Zen Gardner ‘A Time To Stand’

“Keep on waking up and responding. That’s what they’re afraid of, our very awakening to true reality and finally standing straight and tall as the magnificent beings that we are. We don’t need their hierarchical structure never mind the myriad of rules these self appointed rulers impose. They’re well aware of this truth, which is why suppressing our true nature is the underlying motive for their debilitating wars on our health, freedom and mental and spiritual capabilities and potential.

Stand strong and keep everything in its true perspective. Don’t yield or cower to their usurping lies, inadvertently or not.

Find your footing and rise.”

I read an open letter to the military from a former serviceman. Is there a hidden elite pulling all the strings of the warfare machine on all sides? It's time to put morality ahead of orders and just say NO. But, what is morality? Is it given by government laws and bureaucracy or is it something natural and inherent from birth? Let's examine the steps the establishment is taking to sell America "Moral Bankruptcy" and how it relates to the current state of affairs. What does it mean to be truly happy? Is it a choice or a result of circumstance? Joe Rogan explores this and becoming the hero of your own story. Listen Up!!! It's Truth Time!! Music from The Beatles, Blue Oyster Cult, and Bob Marley.
