In Defense of Ron Paul

12.28.11 Update: What appears a carefully orchestrated attack on Dr. Paul for "racism" has continued to build, based on out-of-context quotations and innuendos. Mike Laurrie deconstructs this misinformation here:

One response to this propaganda campaign is to pledge your vote to

Another Response is to be counted as one who is willing to Write In Ron Paul
Ron Paul in 2002 on Racism:
"Racism is simply an ugly form of collectivism, the mindset that views humans strictly as members of groups rather than individuals. Racists believe that all individuals who share superficial physical characteristics are alike: as collectivists, racists think only in terms of groups. By encouraging Americans to adopt a group mentality, the advocates of so-called "diversity" actually perpetuate racism. Their obsession with racial group identity is inherently racist.

The true antidote to racism is liberty. Liberty means having a limited, constitutional government devoted to the protection of individual rights rather than group claims. Liberty means free-market capitalism, which rewards individual achievement and competence, not skin color, gender, or ethnicity.More importantly, in a free society every citizen gains a sense of himself as an individual, rather than developing a group or victim mentality. This leads to a sense of individual responsibility and personal pride, making skin color irrelevant. Rather than looking to government to correct our sins, we should understand that racism will endure until we stop thinking in terms of groups and begin thinking in terms of individual liberty."

A Response to Addicting Info's Attacks on Dr. Paul & His Supporters

[The Bold type or Italic paragraphs are my responses to the numbered allegation below that Ron Paul supporters "do not know what they support".]

Action Item (let your voice be heard!):

“For anyone that doesn’t support Ron Paul, and has ever tried to talk to his supporters, you’ve probably realized that they are unaware of all the things they are supporting by endorsing Ron Paul. Here’s a list of just 21 reasons someone might be a Ron Paul supporter...”

[As you review, below, the “reasons” alluded to above, as to why veterans, patriots, libertarians, Constitutionalists, peace activists, economists, students, 80%+ of his constituents and so many moderates and liberals support the good doctor from Texas, you will enter a strange mirror world of socialist meanderings that reasonable people thought had been left in the “dustbin of history” decades ago.

Dr. Paul, a gentle, courageous crusader for the Constitution, public morality and limited government, is portrayed as some sort of right-wind kook, rather than the perceptive student of history, politics and economics that he is. One would never guess, from the “21 Points” that Dr. Paul supported the restoration of our right to own gold bullion coins in the mid 1970s (of course, how could a socialist imagine such a right?), or that he garnered 320 bi-artisan House co-sponsors to his Audit the Fed Bill (the watered-down version that the leadership in Congress allowed to pass exposed the Fed Reserve's secret $14+ trillion bailout of foreign and domestic banks, above and beyond TARP, the stimulus and all that). Now, as Chair of House Monetary Policy, he has offered a trio of bills to reduce the debt by $1.7 trillion in one step, to return to Constitutional Money, and to finally END the Fed! In that, he stands with the Founders and with Andrew Jackson, ready to bring down the central bank fraud.

Below each distorted “reason” Ron Paul supporters are alleged to support him, we append some points that might be useful in refuting the allegations, assuming, of course, that such a “bourgeois” concept as “logical refutation” is accepted by the proponents of these hackneyed efforts at attack politics.

On the contrary, it appears politically correct in the chump parade to denigrate an appeal to reason and rely on collectivist “class warfare” propaganda that once-upon-a-time turned much of Eurasia into a death camp. Dr. Paul rejects the theories of statism, whether feudalistic, monarchist, merchantilist, crony corporatist, fascist or communist. Instead, he is the champion of Liberty and of the restoration of the Constitutional Republic.]

1. You’ve never researched Ron Paul’s voting record.

Dr. Paul is called “Doctor No!” because he always votes against any bill that increases govt power over people, all “homeland security” bills, all spending bills, all revenue bills, all war-supporting bills, all bills that cannot be justified under the 13 specific powers of Congress under Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution. His voting record is clear.

2. You think it’s OK for businesses to discriminate against people based on their race, since Ron Paul thinks the Civil Rights Act is unconstitutional.

Dr. Paul's respect for privacy and community precludes any support by him for any fed govt intervention either domestically or internationally; it is as wrong to engage in “nation building” in the USA as anywhere else. He relies on voluntary private action to promote the nondiscriminatory values most of us share; he knows it was govt intervention, through the Jim Crow laws, for example, which created segregation in the first place. The proper role of govt is to get out of the way of social interaction.

3. You’re a supporter of the white supremacist organization, which has repeatedly endorsed and stated their support for Ron Paul.

Dr. Paul and his supporters reject all collectivist ideology, including racialist ideologies. The reason he has photos of Professors Rothbard and Mises (both Jewish intellectuals) on his DC office wall is that he rejects the Hegelian Dialectic and its erroneous belief in legal fictions such as “race” “class” “corporation” and “state.” Mises, the great philosopher of freedom, opposed the collectivist ideologies founded on Hegel's false theories (Communism, Nazism, Racism, Collectivism) with the theory of Human Action based on individual choice on the Free Market. This reality-based philosophy defends human dignity and rejects collective impositions. See:

4. You don’t care that Ron Paul was the ONLY congressman who voted against granting subpoena power to the independent panel responsible for investigating the BP oil spill.

When crimes are committed, the responsible response is to impanel a Grand Jury which has well-defined subpoena powers and is overseen by the independent Judiciary. Dr. Paul opposed this non-judicial investigation for the same reason he opposes Obama's assertion that “The President” can order the death of any American he chooses, without the constitutionally required Judge or Jury.

5. You don’t like clean air and water, since Ron Paul wants to eliminate the EPA.

Historically it was govt intervention that took from people the right to redress for the trespass of pollution, in the alleged “public interest.” The creation of layer upon layer of bureaucracy to undue the damages done by bureaucracy does not protect anyone from the results of govt mismanagement of the public trust.

6. You don’t want to have a safety net in place, in case your house is destroyed by a tornado, hurricane, or some other natural disaster, since Ron Paul wants to eliminate FEMA.

The same FEMA that pretended to protect people in New Orleans is better fitted to round up and incarcerate dissidents of all beliefs, rather than provide the type of assistance that NGOs like the Red Cross exist to provide. A govt strong enough to resolve all ills is a govt too strong to allow us the freedom we need to innovate and protect our local communities. The fed govt attacks on Raw Milk is just one example of the govt “protecting” us from ourselves. See:

7. You think all schools should be private, and that you should have to pay for your children to get an education, since Ron Paul wants to eliminate the Department of Education.

Libertarians believe that education is far too important to leave to the govt. Govt “education” stifles innovation and forces all to citizens to become “Good Germans” in the service of the state. We reject state education as strongly as we reject state religion. Parents must be responsible for their own children, as is their right. For those who cannot afford non-govt education (though it is often rather less expensive that the state monopoly school system), it would be far better to provide assistance so they too can receive an education, without govt control over the content of that education. Those who believe in a state monopoly on education are just one step from all the other evils of collectivism.

8. You think corporations should be allowed to do whatever they want, because Ron Paul wants to eliminate all regulations on corporations.

This is a false accusation. Corporations are creatures of the state and have always been regulated for the good of the state (not of people). Libertarians deny the “personhood” of corporations and seek radical restructuring of these monopolistic entities.

9. You are anti-choice, since Ron Paul believes that states should have the right to take away a woman’s choice over what she does with her body.

Dr. Paul does not find any provision in Article I, Section 8 giving Congress responsibility over reproduction choices. Thus, any such regulation must be left to the states. Most libertarians oppose state govt impositions on women's reproductive choices, while often having personal moral objections to denigrating the value of human life (and often disagree as to when that life begins). Dr. Paul helped thousands of woman deliver healthy babies. He highly values life and does not favor voluntary termination of pregnancy, from that perspective.

10. You support segregation, since Ron Paul doesn’t think schools should be forced to allow attendance based on race or ethnic background.

Dr. Paul understands it is collectivism of the grossest sort to believe that govt schools should ever take cognizance of anyone's race or ethnic background. This type of invidious discrimination must not be allowed in a free society.

11. You support guns on airplanes, since Ron Paul thinks that 9/11 could have been prevented, if citizens were allowed to carry guns on airplanes.

It is clear to Dr. Paul that declaring airplanes, schools or any other place of public accommodation “gun free zones” is the same as telling shooters they have free access to victims who cannot defend themselves. Anyone who believes that the govt will protect them is sadly mistaken. They will be long dead before the police arrive, unless, of course, armed guards are stationed everywhere. Those who oppose Dr Paul on this issue objectively want a police state.

12. You oppose equality for LGBT people, since Ron Paul doesn’t think the federal government should guarantee equal protection under the law for our LGBT brothers and sisters.

It is ludicrous to believe that only the fed govt can protect the equal rights of all citizens, without regard to sexual preference. Rather, LGBT people have successfully fought for equal rights in many states and will achieve equality as they assert personal privacy rights against the power of government.

13. You don’t have a problem with people carrying guns near schools, since Ron Paul want to repeal the Gun-Free School Zones Act.

See Answer 11. These guys and gals do seem obsessive about disarming people, though.

14. You oppose same-sex marriage, since Ron Paul was an original co-sponsor of the Marriage Protection Act in the House of Representatives, in 2004.

The conservative view is that marriage is a matter that ought to be left to the states. Dr. Paul's position would not stop any state from legalizing any form of marriage, including same-sex or even polygamy. His stated ideal is even more libertarian, that marriage is a private contract and neither state nor federal govt ought to interfere. Dr. Paul voted against the Federal Marriage Amendment in 2004.

15. You don’t like having a good relationship with other countries around the world, since Ron Paul wants the United States to pull out of the United Nations.

Dr. Paul is a non-interventionist; as such he apposes all entangling alliances. He stands with the Founders on offering friendship and trade to all; entangling alliances with none.

16. You think the middle-class should have a higher tax burden than the wealthy, since Ron Paul’s tax plan would disproportionately favor the rich.

The demographic reality is that the burden of excessive govt spending will always fall on the large middle class; even confiscating 100% of all earnings over a million dollars would only fund the deficit for a few months. Not everyone views “progressive” tax rates as fair, and even with a true flat-rate tax the “rich” will individually pay more taxes than others.

In any event, Dr. Paul never votes for increased taxes and always votes for exemptions. He is the only public figure who accurately predicted the govt-created housing bubble and bust, the 2008 economic disaster and the failure of the Bush/Obama billionaire bankster bailouts. He predicts the collapse of the Federal reserve fiat dollar and says the fed govt is bankrupt and the next president must manage that bankruptcy. He has proposed three specific bills to restore honest Constitutional Money and END the Fed, HR 1094, 1098 and 2768.

17. You want a President who would make more unilateral decisions and undo more progress in this country than George W. Bush could have ever hoped to accomplish.

Dr. Paul has spoken eloquently against presidential unilateralism. He would never seek to seize power over private persons or the states, unlike Bush and Obama. He rejects the imperial presidency, and will not exceed what he views as his limited Constitutional authority.

18. You think that poor students shouldn’t be allowed to go to college, since Ron Paul wants to eliminate federal student loans.

The allegation is illogical; opposing tax-funded education is not the same believing someone “shouldn't” be “allowed” an education! And why should blue collar workers be taxed to pay for some other, wealthier family's children's education?

19. You believe crazy conspiracy theories about globalization, and that the Zionists are trying to take over the world.

Those who fail to read history believe that “conspiracy theories” are “crazy” – those who read history see it is replete with real conspiracies. Once again, an objection to Dr. Paul based on false premises.

20. You think the 10th Amendment is the most important part of the Bill of Rights, even though it’s last on the list.

The case of Bond v US, decided by a unanimous Supreme Court on June 16, 2011, allowed individuals to assert the 10th Amendment in defense of fed govt criminal action. This goes a long way to vindicating Dr. Paul's view that the 10th Amendment is a major “Check and Balance” against overwrought fed power.

21. You’re mad at Obama because you believed him when he said he would end the war immediately, and he didn’t because he didn’t have the support of congress, but you believe Ron Paul could get it done immediately.

Says Ron Paul, in support of an immediate end to war and world-wide military bases, “They marched in; they can just march out.”

The left-neocons, such as Obama, have the same hideous warfare state/welfare state mentality as the right-neocons like Bush. Only a “useful idiot” believes the Obama “Peace Laureate” propaganda.

Dr. Paul, the only veteran running for president, understands the overriding need to achieve peace and to reject war. He stands squarely in the patriot tradition of opposition to Empire. Those who persist in supporting the Bush/Obama imperial war policies are not friends of peace, or justice, or freedom.

“Thousands of lives and trillions and trillions of dollars wasted...” based on false propaganda of war; Dr. Paul now warns us that the drums of war are being beaten yet again, mesmerizing the unthinking and perhaps leading to disaster again.

With other GOP candidates vying to see who can support torture the most; who can see more preemptive war targets, while the Democrats consolidate and extend the war policy, extending it to Pakistan, and to any place on earth where an American "judged" without trial to be a "terrorist" might hide...

The Republic is sick and needs a good doctor!

Political Philosophy: Liberty or Power

A Prolegomena to Any
Future Political Philosophy

Amagi: Cuneiform for Liberty

"Audit the Fed!" in 2009; the TEA Party 2010 election; the Arab Spring and Wall Street Occupancy of 2011; Ron Paul's 2012 campaign: anti-establishment political activism is on the rise. But not just activism; rather also, real root-cause analysis and willingness to explore ideas. Action Items:
Implementation: January, 2013:
For example, there was a vibrant discussion on a TEA Party forum a few weeks ago about the Hegelian Dialectic and the prospects for Liberty. That discussion prompted me to think about the basis of the concept of Individual Liberty and to look at the historic roots of freedom from the Ancient City to the modern Internet.

At one point in the discussion, one of the posters opined that Hegelian philosophy was, in essence, very pessimistic. I replied:
That is certainly a depressing view of ‘it all’ -- but also certainly one consistent with the ‘dialectic’ and its belief in unending repeated cycles of thesis, antithesis and synthesis.

That's why, in earlier postings on this thread, I've proposed the Misian alternative to the dialectic which is based on the Axiom of Human Action and which rejects the dialectic for what Mises sometimes referred to as an "evenly rotating economy."

We do not need to accept the premises of the ‘progressives.’ There is an entire intellectual tradition which has, for over a hundred years, rejected the dialectic and Marxian materialism.

That school of thought, sometimes referred to as the "Austrian School," or Free Market School, proposes Human Action, guided by individual choice on the market, as the primary subject of real philosophy, or what Mises calls "praxiology" -- the study of Human Action.

Just look through the chapter headings in Mises' monumental Human Action and see the scope of that school of thought. [1]

The dialectic represents a failed philosophy which ought to be consigned to the dustbin of history. Mises, Rothbard and the Free Market School are the proper basis for all future political philosophy. They have offered us a true “Prolegomena to any Future Political Philosophy.”
In a similar vein, my co-trustee at Natural Solutions Foundation, and its President, Oath Keeper Maj. Gen. Bert Stubblebine (US Army, ret.) engaged with Occupy Wall Street (#OWS) and sent a powerful Emergency Message on the occasion of World Food Day, October 16, 2011.
“War is not good for children or other living things…” said those who protested and resisted the Viet Nam war, at a time when I was commanding US Army intelligence units in the jungles of Viet Nam – and being doused with Agent Orange... Today we are at war in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Libya, and, increasingly involved in expansive, and expensive, imperial entanglements around the world. But there is another war being waged against US, right here at home. “Trillions and trillions wasted…” as Dr. Ron Paul says...”[2]
One major factor in common among all of these diverse anti-establishment stirrings: the idea that individuals matter; that individuals can come together and effectively demand liberty.

Advocates of liberty can look back to the earliest stirrings of human culture for the beginnings of the concept of self-ownership and the right to liberty which that entails. Early cuneiform written about 2300 B.C. in the Sumerian city-state of Lagash included the word “amagi” which is translated as “freedom.” Sixth Century BCE philosopher Lao Tse championed personal freedom of conscience and during the subsequent millennia the idea of freedom became ever more a driving force in the development of human culture.

But, we must not think of the Ancient City as a place of what Mises might have understood as Liberty. One extraordinary work exploring the governance of the Ancient City is the 1864 master work of jurist and scholar Fustel de Coulanges, The Ancient City.

There we find:
The city had been founded on a religion and constituted a church. Hence its strength; hence, also, its omnipotence and the absolute empire which it exercised over its members. In a society established on such principles, individual liberty could not exist. The citizen was subordinate in everything, and without any reserve, to the city; he belonged to it body and soul. The religion which had produced the state, and the state which supported the religion, sustained each other, and made but one; these two powers, associated and confounded, formed a power almost superhuman, to which the soul and body were equally enslaved… There was nothing independent in man… Private life did not escape this omnipotence of the state… The state allowed no man to be indifferent to its interests… The ancients, therefore, knew neither liberty in private life, liberty in education, nor religious liberty…

It is a singular error, therefore… to believe that in the ancient cities men enjoyed liberty. They had not even the idea of it. They did not believe that there could exist any right as against the city and its gods… The government was called by turns monarchy, aristocracy, democracy; but none of these revolutions gave man true liberty, individual liberty. To have political rights, to vote, to name magistrates, to have the privilege of being archon, -- this was called liberty; but man was not the less enslaved to the state…[3]
In contradistinction to the ancient past, the past half millennium has seen very significant advances in liberty and, in the past century or so, a clear theory of human action, or praxeology, has developed which posits Freedom of Choice as a driving factor in the advance of human civilization, as “dissatisfied” individuals engage in human action.

Control over most humans has been maintained for millennia through the use of religious and, later, political ideologies that justify the dominance of the few over the many. Through the use of what early freedom theorists such as Lysandor Spooner saw as the great monopolies created by political power, this strict social control dominated human society. These included the monopolies over conscience (state religions), over the bodies of certain people (chattel slavery; caste systems), or the property rights of about half of the species (the legal “infirmities” of women) and over property through regal claims to “own” the land and economic activities of a territory (feudalism and mercantilism). But in more modern times, the structure of bureaucracy itself has been the control system; consider, for, example, how the regulatory structure of the Military Draft was used in the USA during the 1960s and ‘70s to “channel” students into certain fields, such as science, which were considered of benefit to the state.

During the past few centuries the King’s age-old monopolies have begun to break-down and disappear. The world-wide outlawing of chattel slavery and the movement toward equality for women and an end to caste systems have freed-up extraordinary level of human creativity. As a result, despite the enormous growth of government and the burden that system of coercion imposes on all people, human economic activity has reached new levels of organization and efficiency. More people live longer, healthier and wealthier lives than ever before in human history.

This powerful, world-wide movement toward greater liberty has met nearly equally powerful resistance among the beneficiaries of the monopolies. Fundamentalists among the three related monotheistic religions have especially resisted the equality of women. Politicians of various persuasions have many spurious arguments to make about economic controls that are just variations on the King’s Monopolies that had been rejected by the European Classical Liberal Tradition, from which the work of Mises and Rothbard arose.

The Twenty-First Century has enhanced intellectual tools to bring to the battle of ideas; the instantaneous communications of the Internet Social Networking universe allow no one to hide behind old, disproven ideas. Nonetheless, Hegelian concepts about “collectives,” echoed by the intellectual heirs of Hegel, the Nazis and the Marxists, and more recently taken up by collectivists of various more seemingly-modest varieties, are still raised in an attempt to impose “Politically Correct” restrictions on speech and intellectual inquiry, especially in the government’s “public” universities and other “public” spaces. Similarly, collectivist arguments are made by Islamic and Christian fundamentalists, against freedom of conscience and for government restrictions on freely chosen Human Action. Of course, against this we find many expressive association non-governmental organization (NGOs)[4] using the most advanced forms of Internet communication, to pursue the Liberty we have come to expect as of right.

Advocates of liberty see only one ethical limit on Human Action: non-coercion against non-coercers. In this way, libertarian political theory stands in direct opposition to the ideologies of the old Right/Left paradigm. The Misian approach counters arguments about legal fictions such as “peoples” – “races” – “nations” – “religions” – “classes” – “corporations”, with arguments about the root of Human Action – the Axiom of Human Action: individual dissatisfaction. These legal fictions cannot act in the real world. Only humans act; sometimes pretending to act on behalf of these fictions. It's time, though, to wake up from the mythic ancient city and assert the real roots of human culture, in Human Action. It's time to take responsibility for what is real.
“Man's freedom to choose and to act is restricted in a threefold way. There are first the physical laws to whose unfeeling absoluteness man must adjust his conduct if he wants to live. There are second the individual's innate constitutional characteristics and dispositions and the operation of environmental factors; we know that they influence both the choice of the ends and that of the means, although our cognizance of the mode of their operation is rather vague. There is finally the regularity of phenomena with regard to the interconnectedness of means and ends, viz., the praxeological law as distinct from the physical and from the physiological law.

The elucidation and the categorical and formal examination of this third class of laws of the universe is the subject matter of praxeology and its hitherto best-developed branch, economics. The body of economic knowledge is an essential element in the structure of human civilization; it is the foundation upon which modern industrialism and all the moral, intellectual, technological, and therapeutical achievements of the last centuries have been built. It rests with men whether they will make the proper use of the rich treasure with which this knowledge provides them or whether they will leave it unused. But if they fail to take the best advantage of it and disregard its teachings and warnings, they will not annul economics; they will stamp out society and the human race.” - Human Action, Pg 885.[4]
Thus, the line in the sand...

Mises, speaking to a group of then rather young libertarians at a Society for Individual Liberty conference in Philadelphia warned us all back in 1971. He wagged his finger at his long-haired audience (including a Nobel laureate's son; several future best-selling authors; even a congress-critter-in-the-making...) and told us, "You are eating your seed corn..."

And so we have been... but we have also been learning and communicating in ways that visionaries like Mises, or Buckminster Fuller, were just dimly perceiving just a few decades ago. It was Fuller who opined, just before his passing, that the then new computer media would make what he called "the secret government" impossible.

I firmly believe that the Tea Party #teaparty and Occupy Wall Street #OWS can constructively engage, in a transpartisan discussion - since both movements see the the same mis/non and malfeasance of the crony corporatists and their minions in govt.

However, "IMHO" it is the Ron Paul libertarians, who can "stand in both camps," who can best bridge to actual solutions to the problems, and an opportunity to teach a whole "progressive" generation that govt is not any solution!

The solution is to adopt the strong market-oriented reforms, such as Rep. Ron Paul, as House chair of Monetary Policy, has offered.

HR 1094, 1098 and 2768 are a comprehensive restructuring and de-socializing of the USA's centralized banking system. I wrote about that HERE. Similarly, he is offering a comprehensive Trillion Dollar Budget Reform that rapidly returns to a balanced budget, and a series of bills about health and food freedom, such as the Raw Milk Freedom Bill, HR.1830, about which I wrote, HERE, that, in his wording, would "Legalize freedom!"

It appears to some analysts, such as Gen. Stubblebine, that the globalists want to use #OWS as a counterfoil to what they perceive as a potential Tea Party Tsunami. The General thinks we need to outflank them by weening the movement from pro-govt stands to a truly radical rejection of the Left-Neocons that now control the White House.

General Bert's Emergency Message & Video to Occupy Wall Street:

A globalist "Genocidal Agenda" is discussed by Dr. Rima E. Laibow MD in this appearance at the School of Enlightenment, Yelm, WA.

In this new approach to politics, this transpartisan approach, once again Dr. Paul has shown extraordinary leadership. Examples include garnering over 320 House co-sponsors to his tough Audit the Fed bill in 2010, and the 2008 Joint Policy Statement what he calls the "Principled Third Parties" issued together, in an unprecedented "right/left" show of support for his leadership, about which I wrote HERE. Any wonder Dr. Paul has photos of Mises and Rothbard on his DC office wall?

These are, as the old Chinese curse has it, "exciting times..." they are times that cry out for concerted, well-considered Human Action.

Liberty rests on the restlessness of the individual; on our individual dissatisfaction, as we each seek to maximize our individual good…

Here is Dr. Paul on Pushing Back for Freedom:

 To paraphrase Mises:
Only Individuals think.
Only Individuals plan.
Only Individuals engage in Human Action.

All the rest is political fiction. Any future politics must take this Truth into account.

The Vaccine Truthers Debate Continues

Action item:
Hold Big Pharma and
FDA Responsible for Vaccine Harms

Since the exchange at the GOP Tea Party Debate in Florida earlier this week, where Rep. Michelle Bachmann chastized Gov. Rick Perry for his Texas Executive Order illegally mandating the dangerous Gardisil vaccine for children, there has been a lively debate about vaccines and freedom on various forums and news media.

Some have expressed the opinion that they trust the CDC more than they trust those who oppose such invasive medicine.

The excerpts and paraphrases below gives the flavor of some of the arguments against the vax supporters.

I still haven't gotten an answer to my "uninsurable risk" question posed a couple times here...

The private sector experts of risk in our society, namely the insurance industry, refuse to offer insurance to cover vaccine injury risks.

All other sorts of risks (sky-diving, spelunking... et al) can be insured BUT not vaccines. Your health can be insured. Your life can be insured and we all know we don't leave here alive...

Private for-profit companies (and that includes drug companies) are not permitted to invest shareholders' money in uninsurable risks. So, but for the Act of Congress denying us our common law right to redress for foreseeable injuries, there would be no vaccination industry. That Act was passed in response to the First Swine Flu Vaccine Disaster of the mid '70s when hundreds died. Congress acted fast, to protect Big Pharma.

My question is: Why would people who are smart enough to be opposed to Govt programs like "Obamacare" and thus, one would assume, have a healthy sense of disbelief in Govt programs, accept the Govt's propaganda abut safety and efficacy of vaccines rather than the private risk experts' judgment that vaccines are, uniquely, an uninsurable risk?

And why should tax funds ever be spent on such risks and why should anyone ever be forced to accept such uninsurable risks?

Where, my further question has been, in Art 1 Sect 8 does Congress have the power to do this to us?

And better, how does mandating vaccines -- whether Federally, in Texas, MN or NJ or wherever -- comport with our Core Values which include supporting the free market, something that is totally not represented by the vaccine-pushers?

The answers for anyone not mesmerized by the propaganda should be obvious. It is, ultimately about Liberty and Social Control.

Let's look at the Second Swine Flu Vaccine Fiasco of 2009.

First, the Govt HHS bought the entire output of 5 drug companies for $6.4 billion, including the especially dangerous live virus vax, the first to be ready (and bought about a half billion dollars of Squalene, an unapproved adjuvant drug, just in case).

Second, the Govt FDA approved the drugs without safety testing [the CDC, who some trust, said that the Swine Virus was a "novel" virus with pandemic potential; then the CDC said, it's just a "change of strain" not needing safety testing... right, let's trust the CDC, shall we?).

Third, the Govt CDC recommended the mandating of the vaccines, thereby triggering various state mandates that we successfully stopped.

Fourth, the Govt distributed the vaccines... but almost nobody took them... instead, over 3.5 million Americans emailed their state and federal reps refusing the vax ... and the program collapsed and the pandemic never happened.

We "vaccine truthers" believe that there was no pandemic because it is the vaccines, especially the live virus vaccines, that cause epidemics.

Read Dr. Laibow's

What was the Govt Swine Flu Plan, as set out in the law suits?

It was, after the live virus vax triggered the pandemic, to force all Americans to be vaccinated at 90,000 locations around the country. Since there was not enough vax to force it on us all, an Emergency was declared and the CDC scientists who refused to sign off on the use of the dangerous drug squalene could be ignored. The vax supply was going to be extended by the use of this substance which is used to kill lab animals, by admixing it at the 90,000 locations...

Can you imagine the disaster that would have occurred with non-sterile drug mixing in school cafeterias, town hall basements and post offices? I can and I thank God we stopped the insanity.

Leadership in Crisis: Ron Paul's Constitutional Monetary Reform Bills HR.1094, 1098 & 2768!

Balance the Budget & Abolish the Fed, that is...

Action Item to support Free Market Monetary Reform:

Dr. Ron Paul (R - TX) as Chair of the House Monetary Policy Subcommittee, and a leading presidential candidate, has introduced a package of bills aimed at restoring Constitutional Money and saving the United States from the Deficit Downgrade Dollar Debacle brought about by the Boehner/Reid Fed Debt Increase.

The third of the bills was introduced on Monday, August 1st, the same day the current White House occupant signed the Debt Increase law, the day before the Treasury borrowed (on 08.02) another $263 Billion (which may lead to August being the largest Treasury borrowing month ever, surpassing even February 2011).

With the Federal Reserve fiat "dollar" in free-fall against the value of Gold (8.8.11 - reaching up to 1,762 FRNs to the Oz Au overnight) and with the Dow collapsing 512 & 634 points in the biggest drops since December '08, the urgency of real Free Market Monetary Reform becomes all the more obvious. The Market knows the Boehner/Reid Fed Debt Increase is doomed to failure.

Americans ought to reject the Big Lie: namely, that the Tea Party is to "blame" for the S&P Downgrade! Patriots need to Push Back against this disinformation!

IMHO, the way to do that is for Patriots to get behind Dr. Paul's Free Market Monetary Reform bills with the same fervor we got behind the '07 End the Fed Rallys and the 2010 Kick-the-Bums-Out Election.

Patriots need to organize around an issue that can keep us together and in the news as the deception media ramps up the electioneering show, hoping to further marginalize the Tea Party and their natural allies, such as the Constitutionalists, Libertarians and so many others. We need to organize around an issue that positions us to "have the answer" as the hyperinflation escalates.

Free Market Monetary Reform is just the issue... and soon the fiat "dollar" is all anyone will want to discuss, since we will all be caught up in the whirlwind as we reap what the Fed Establishment has sewn...

Action Item to support Free Market Monetary Reform:

The Constitutional Monetary Reform Bills are:

HR 1098 which legalizes the setting of legal tender in private contracts; abolishes taxes on gold & silver coin trading.

H.R.1098 -- Free Competition in Currency Act of 2011

To repeal the legal tender laws, to prohibit taxation on certain coins and bullion, and to repeal superfluous sections related to coinage.

HR 1094 which abolishes the Fed Reserve board of governors and puts it in receivership preparatory to abolition.

H.R.1094 -- Federal Reserve Board Abolition Act

To abolish the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System and the Federal reserve banks, to repeal the Federal Reserve Act, and for other purposes.


Rep. Ron Paul on Monday introduced legislation that would lower the federal government's debt by canceling the roughly $1.6 trillion in debt held by the Federal Reserve.

Paul has argued for the last few weeks that the idea represents a quick way to make the growing fiscal crisis more manageable. Under his bill, H.R. 2768, the $1.6 trillion that the Treasury owes to the Federal Reserve would disappear.

Continued here:

The approach that Dr. Paul proposes is a continuation of his overall program to "Legalize Freedom..." as he says.

Please support these bills! Urge your congressional reps to become co-sponsors, like over 300 did with Dr. Paul's Audit the Fed bill in '09.

Here is a short video interview I did with Dr. Paul May 2011 on the issue of Pushing Back to Legalize Freedom:

The good folks at DownsizeDC have an action item to support Dr. Paul's monetary bills (this action item is about HR.1098, but you can add comments about HR.1094 and 2768 to it):

Responding to FDA Assaults on Nutrients:
Current Action Items

Responding to FDA Assaults

Action Item:

Armed Govt Agents Raid Amish Dairies, Raw Food Co-ops and Health Food Stores... As the Raids Intensify, our Health and Food Freedom is Threatened... Meanwhile, the Increases in Factory "Phude" (Looks Like Food, But It Ain't) Disease Exposes the Failures of the Federalization of Food Safety!

During 2007 the Natural Solutions Foundation warned the American public that Ted Kennedy's last gift of power to the Federal bureaucracy, the so-called FDA Modernization Act of 2007 (what we call the FDA Enabling Act) would seriously threaten our Health and Food Freedom.

Raw Milk Advocates at the Capitol, May 2011

Action Item:
9.8.11 Update: FDA Extends Comment Period for its NDI Guidance for 60 days -
"ROCKVILLE, Md.—FDA extended the comment period for its New Dietary Ingredient (NDI) Draft Guidance by 60 days to Dec. 2, 2011. The extension came one month after five industry trade organizations requested FDA to extend the comment period by 45 days..."

Although we fought hard to make sure language was kept in the 2007 bill "exempting" dietary supplements, the DSHEA Exemption, (and you sent over 150,000 emails in one weekend!) we were not holding out much hope that this massive increase in FDA power would not be used against our freedom of choice... despite the fact the the law is clear and the statute had specific exemption language. We were specially worried about language in the Act that would let FDA ban interstate commerce in any FOOD that had ever been studied for medical use.

That's right, Congress gave FDA authority to ban any food... why? Indeed, why would Congress believe it had power under Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution to control what food free Americans grow and use? We leave the answer to such questions to the philosophers and psychiatrists...

Dr. Ron Paul (R - TX):
Giving FDA more authority is giving
"FDA power to abuse..."

Sure enough, the ink of President Bush's signature was barely dry when FDA moved to ban the first supplement under the new law. At the behalf of a drug company (they called it a "citizen petition") FDA banned a form of Vitamin B6 that has been continually available for decades. This form of B6 happens to be the most bioavailable, thus the drug company "studied" it and then decided NOT to market it, but rather seek govt help in banning it!

How did FDA "get around" the DSHEA Exemption? It announced that none of the vitamin companies and advocates objecting to the ban had "proven" that this particular form of B6 had been "sold to supplement the diet" prior to the "grandfathering" cut off date in 1994. The listing of this form of B6 in the "Old Dietary Ingredients" list posted on the FDA website was not to be considered proof anymore! This new regulation threatens every nutrient innovation since 1994... and maybe before!

New FDA NDI (New Dietary Ingredient) Regulation
Threatens All Nutrient Innovations Since 1994!

We warned that the Vitamin B6 precedent would threaten all dietary supplement advances since '94. Fast-forward to 2011... FDA announces a new guideline on New Dietary Ingredients which takes the B6 precedent and codifies this for all nutrients. Remember, FDA restricts what people can say about nutrients and then uses its new powers to ban those nutrients. This is a Freedom of Speech Issue. Here is what Life Extension says about this:

The FDA has just issued a proposed mandate that will enable the government to ban the most effective dietary supplements you are now taking.

If this proposal is enacted, many fish oil formulas and natural plant extracts will be removed from the market until so-called safety testing is done. The FDA wants each nutrient company to force-feed laboratory animals the human equivalent of up to 240,000 milligrams a day of certain fish oils. This outlandish dose will injure the test animals and give the FDA an excuse to outlaw the supplement.

How can the FDA do this? They are seeking to reclassify the natural supplements you now take as "food additives." This gives the FDA power to mandate outrageous safety thresholds that have no relationship to the scientifically validated doses of nutrients you take every day.

Why are they doing this? Because these natural products work too well. Take curcumin as an example. It has been shown to inhibit a deadly transcription factor in cells called nuclear factor-kappa beta (NF-kB) that is responsible for immune system regulation. Over-expression of NF-kB is linked with tumor cells that resist normal cell growth and maturation, as well as inflammation.

Pharmaceutical companies want to own the exclusive rights to these kinds of plant extracts that are freely sold on the market today. They don’t want consumers to be able to obtain these biological benefits in low-cost supplements. Instead, they want to patent synthetic versions as high-priced prescription drugs!

We know what the FDA wants to do... stop us from making what they and their drug company friends think are "bad" decisions... What is the law, however? Here is what the Supreme Court said in Thompson v Western States (535 U.S. 357 - 2002):

"If the First Amendment means anything, it means that regulating speech must be a last - not first - resort... We have previously rejected the notion that the Government has an interest in preventing the dissemination of truthful commercial information in order to prevent members of the public from making bad decisions with the information... Even if the Government did argue that it had an interest in preventing misleading advertisements, this interest could be satisfied by the far less restrictive alternative of requiring each ... to be labeled with a warning that the [product] had not undergone FDA testing and that its risks were unknown..."
Once again, the FDA is abusing power Congress wrongfully granted to this oppressive agency! Once again, our Health and Food Freedoms are under assault! We initiated a new Action Item to reply to this latest FDA attack on health and food and urge everyone to "take it viral" and flood decision makers with your concerns! In addition, we have several other current relevant Action Items we urge you to use daily!


Let's face it. We need a staff devoted to keeping the attack, and the attackers, straight.

Food. Nukes. GMOs. Vaccines. Compulsory Drugging. Medical Privacy. Chipping. TSA/DHS Radiation Exposure. FDA Raids.

The list goes on and on

"No! No! Not ANOTHER one!" some people say -- as one person did, in fact, say, during the chat session at during this week's edition of the Dr. Rima Reports,

"Yes, Yes, and there will be more. Many more, I am sorry to tell you."

You see, if you watch the Globalist Agenda,, you'll hear the plan. If you have been one of those folks who denies that it could be real, or happen, or be anything other than a "CONSPIRACY THEORY" despite the data that turns it into a "CONSPIRACY FACT", then perhaps, perhaps, this assualt by State and Federal agencies working in concert at 3 locations on one morning, might just, possibly, be enough to shake the scales from your eyes and get you
And ready to take back - yes, it has been lost, but can be reclaimed - your
Constitutional Rights
Ownership of Your Body
Control of the Government
Amendments: I, II, III, IV, V, VI, VII, VIII, IX, X, XIII...
That's right, all of them. The Constitution of the US was shredded by the Rawsome Food Co-op raids. What is left? Rags and tatters of the hemp parchment upon which it was written.

Had enough? Believe us now? OK

Here is the plan
1. Take the following Action Items Every Day for Every Member of Your Family. Every Day

2. Commit to informing, AND ACTIVATING 10 people to do the same (that is, taking the actions and activating 10 other people)

3. Set up a recurring donation for whatever your health freedom and constitutional rights are worth to you and you can afford (really afford, for patriot's sake) here:

4. Invest in the NSFGreenFund,, to use the money that you would invest anyway, be it IRA, 401 or other monies, to support the activities of the Natural Solutions Foundation AND make a return. For our supporters, this private expressive association has made it affordable by setting very low minimum investments for monthly or lump sum investments (which can be pooled by several people) and adding a bonus value of 6% to your investment. Check it out. The money is for freedom. AND you get a return on your bonded, insured principle.

OK. That's it. No guns, mud, freezing conditions at Valley Forge. Just Freedom Mice and Freedom Money. How very 21st Century! How very essential. Too much trouble? Not enough interest? Really? With your DNA and your future at stake?

I know you'll do the right thing because you have read this far. If you don't, along with enough others, you have chosen to enslave yourself.

slave - [sleyv] noun, verb, slaved, slav·ing. noun - 1.a person who is the property of and wholly subject to another; a bond servant. 2.a person entirely under the domination of some influence or person: a slave to a drug. 3.a drudge: a housekeeping slave.

DSHEA & Nutrients Under Increasing FDA Attack!


Updated Foundation Counsel's Blog Report:

Last week Natural Solutions Foundation's Health and Food Freedom Action eAlert reported on the Nutraingredients USA article that warned us about a new threat to Health and Food Freedom in Congress: the Durbin Dietary Supplement Labeling Bill -

According to the article: "The bill would... require manufacturers to register dietary supplement products [with] the FDA, require labels to disclose the known risks of ingredients and display a mandatory warning if the product contains a dietary ingredient that may cause potentially serious adverse events. The bill also calls for labels to display the batch number, something already adopted as standard"

The article quotes leading dietary supplement lawyer Jonathan Emord, calling the bill a “classic example of regulatory overkill.... The FDA has full regulatory power to prevent the sale of adulterated and misbranded foods and dietary supplements... By introducing new powers when old ones are more than sufficient, [Durbin] invites abuses, including more burden and cost on an industry that is already overwhelmed by the burden and cost of the GMPs and, now, the [sic] Food Safety Modernization Act...”

POWER IS THE GOAL: "Sen Durbin said that his goal “is to take the decision about how a product will be regulated out of the hands of the manufacturer and put it in the hands of the FDA where it belongs."

For More About Our Analysis of the Attacks on Nutrients please see Foundation President, Gen. Bert Stubblebine's First Risk Assessment, updated: Threats to Health and Food Freedom -

Subsequent to this disturbing report, we learned of a new FDA dietary supplement regulation under the new Food Control Law, the infamous S.510 of the 111th Congress.

As Natural News reports: "...nearly all vitamin and supplement ingredients could soon be banned under the FDA's new NDI [New Dietary Ingredient] rules because very few supplement ingredients can be conclusively shown to have been widely used BEFORE [the "grandfathering" date of] 1994... Through this clever trick with NDI rules, the FDA can now position itself as the gatekeeper for all supplement approvals. Far from merely being a requirement to "notify" the FDA of the use of new ingredients, NDI rules essentially subject supplements to approval from the FDA.

Learn more:

Similarly, the Natural Products Association has this to say:
We believe the draft guidance does not match Congress’s clear intent that products made from ingredients on the market prior to DSHEA should remain on the market. The FDA is asking for far more from the industry to prove that an ingredient was on the market before 1994 than most makers can probably produce. That was not the intent of DSHEA. These requirements will reduce ingredients meeting the established grandfathered status to a regrettably small number.
Our Action Item has been updated to help educate decision makers about the new NDI rule as well as Sen. Durbin's bill: please contact your congress-critters daily about this the other health and food freedom issues that matter!

Updated Action item:

Here is Dr. Ron Paul about Push Back:

And while you are at it... Please support Dr. Ron Paul's Raw Milk Interstate Commerce Freedom Bill, HR.1830: - hear him about that here:

* The draft of the "Educate Decision Makers" email reads as follows (you can modify it):
To the White House, Speaker Boehner, Chairman Kingston & Congress:


DO NOT SUPPORT Sen Durbin's "Dietary Supplement Labeling Act" which would require pre-market registration of these nutrient food products.

I am a concerned organic gardener, family farmer, rancher and/or consumer... I am concerned about food safety and I am concerned about protecting my access to local and natural food production and distribution; that is, Food Freedom.

I am very concerned that the FDA will implement the 2010 Food Safety Modernization Act in ways that will harm these important interests. This is not a "food safety" law; it is a Federal power-grab food control law!

The new Congress ought to re-consider its controversial provisions, such as section 104 that may allow secret regulations, in violation of the pledge of transparency.

Further concerns include the convoluted procedure for local food production exemptions and the "road map" the new law provides for rapid "HARMonization" of our food freedoms with international Codex Alimentarius restrictions.

I urge the White House to be very closely involved in the writing of the regulations under the new law, to ensure the protection of these interests and to make sure all interest groups are heard and considered by the regulators.

To my Congressperson and to Chairman Kingston & Speaker Boehner - please help the White House avoid the worst aspects of the food control bill.

DO NOT FUND ITS PROVISIONS. We are especially concerned with the provision for thousands of new FDA food control inspections. No provision of this bill should be funded by the new Congress. DE-FUND FOOD CONTROL!

I also oppose what Health Freedom USA has called Sen. Leahy's "Criminalization of Food and Speech" bill, which claims to "increase criminal penalties for certain knowing and intentional violations relating to food..." but applies only to SPEECH -- this bill has reared its ugly head again, as S.216.

Do not increase FDA authority; oppose the Durbin Dietary Supplement Labeling Act.

I agree with Rep Jack Kingston:

"I think we will [not fund the food control law]. We have a lot of concerns about the necessity of putting 18,000 food police on the streets and the kitchens of America. The trend in food safety has been very, very favorable. I'm not sure that this kind of investment is going to give any returns that justify it."

Food Freedom is an important issue to me and I will pay attention to what the White House and FDA do with any new power granted by Congress. But what would be best would be for Congress to REDUCE the Power of the FDA!

Ron Paul Bill to Legalize Raw Milk Interstate Commerce

Action item here:

This message from Dr. Ron Paul regarding his new bill, HR 1830 -

"Most Americans understand that if you don't want to drink unpasteurized milk you simply do not buy it. But the federal government solution is pre-dawn raids which destroy the livelihoods of honest, hardworking families in this time of continued economic hardship.

I am outraged by [the April 2011 FDA armed] raid [on a peaceable Raw Milk producer] and the many others like it, and that is why last week I introduced HR 1830, a bill to allow the shipment and distribution of unpasteurized milk and milk products for human consumption across state lines. This legislation removes the unconstitutional restraint on farmers who wish to sell or otherwise distribute, and people who wish to consume, unpasteurized milk and milk products.

Many Americans have done their own research and come to the conclusion that unpasteurized milk is healthier than pasteurized milk. These Americans have the right to consume these products without having the federal government second-guess their judgment or thwart their wishes. If there are legitimate concerns about the safety of unpasteurized milk, those concerns should be addressed at the state and local level.

I am hoping my colleagues in the House will join me in promoting individual rights, the original intent of the Constitution, and federalism by cosponsoring this legislation to allow the interstate shipment of unpasteurized milk and milk products for human consumption.

If we are not even free anymore to decide something as basic as what we wish to eat or drink, how much freedom do we really have left?"

I urge strong support for this bill.

The Action Item above asks your Members of Congress to become Co-Sponors of this important legislation. Many patriots rightly complain that the "Interstate Commerce Clause" of the Constitution has been misapplied to allow unprecedented Federal interventions in our private lives. This is one case where the Clause has its proper, limited application: promoting free trade among the States.

Once again, Dr. Paul has shown his strong leadership in a Liberty issue!

Counsel J. Emord's views on this issue are worth noting too:

And here are two more links about the Raw Milk Rally in DC:

The Free Speech About Science Act - H.R. 1364

HR 1364, HR 1830, S.216 and the Struggle for Health and Food Freedom Action Item:

Yes, it's always nice when members of Congress respond to net-roots Push Back and introduce bills that would offer further protection for our Health and Food Freedom of Speech. And we are sure the latest such bill, H.R. 1364, entitled the Free Speech About Science Act, introduced in the House of Representatives April 2011 by Congressmen Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) and Jared Polis (D-CO) is such a bill. We've been calling for further legal protection for years. HR. 1364 ought to be amended to truly protect health free speech.

The Natural Solutions Foundation's Health and Food Freedom proposals, linked through the Health and Food Freedom of Speech Action Item, at are detailed and include more than the current bill. Nonetheless, we certainly urge you to use the above Action Item to support that bill and urge its improvement.

Our gripe is aimed not at all those good folk who turn to Congress for protection, but at the Congress-critters who vote to protect us (or not) only to do nothing when the FDA thumbs its collective nose at Congress and the People by ignoring the protective laws Congress has adopted.

Frankly, we thought we had won the battle over being allowed to communicate truthfully about health and food in Congress and in the Supreme Court.

We thought that's what DSHEA was supposed to have done in 1994 with its Third Party Literature Provisions. Those provisions were further supported by the 1997 Labeling Commission which stated,
"Historically, FDA has considered literature used directly in connection with the sale of a product to be "labeling" for the product. Section 5 of DSHEA exempts certain publications used in connection with the sale of dietary supplements from being defined as "labeling." The exemption applies to "a publication, including an article, a chapter in a book, or an official abstract of a peer-reviewed scientific publication..."

And again we thought this matter had been determined by the Supreme Court in the 2002 landmark Thompson v Western States case, wherein the Court opined:

"If the First Amendment means anything, it means that regulating speech must be a last - not first - resort. *** We have previously rejected the notion that the Government has an interest in preventing the dissemination of truthful commercial information in order to prevent members of the public from making [even] bad decisions with the information...."
Finally even the FDA "enabling act" of 2007 specifically exempted DSHEA products from enhanced FDA oversight.

But repeatedly FDA has ignored these legal restrictions, prompting Dr Ron Paul to remark that, when the Congress gives more power to FDA, the agency always engages in an "abuse of power..." A couple years ago it ignored the 2007 restrictions to exceed its power and ban the interstate sale of certain vitamins. Just last year it sought to ban the entire Ear Candling industry and asked the Courts to recognize NO right of Americans to make their own dietary choices.

This is an agency run-amok. An agency that is so incompetent that about half of the dangerous drugs (including vaccines) it approves must be withdrawn from the market, or strictly curtailed, within 5 years of approval, thus proving that the Public has become the final stage in drug company research and development. All the while, supporting drug company exemptions from legal liability for the horrendous harm they cause the Public.

Meanwhile, what we call Sen. Leahy's Criminalization of Food and Speech bill, which claims to "increase criminal penalties for certain knowing and intentional violations relating to food..." but applies only to SPEECH, has reared its ugly head again, as S.216. While that dangerous bill slid through the Senate, we hope it will stall in the House. But the Senate may have more surprises in store for us, with Sen. Durbin planning on introducing a new Dietary Supplement labeling bill that would, for the first time, subject vitamins to registration with the federal government prior to sale.

While all this is happening, Dr. Ron Paul continues to urge "legalization of freedom" with his recent Raw Milk Freedom bill, HR. 1830. Read more about this Interstate Commerce Bill, see my interview with him, and use the Action Item to support it, here:

Yes, Congress, can pass new laws to protect us from its agents -- or subject us to even more harassment.

But better, DIVEST THE FDA OF FOOD AUTHORITY! Let it stick to messing up dangerous drugs and deadly vaccines... FREE US from this bureaucratic nightmare that leads to hundreds of thousands of unnecessary deaths every year!

And that's our gripe about a bill that's been introduced with the best intent, but with hardly enough clout to do the job of restoring our Health and Food Freedoms. To do that, please go to to for more information and more Action Items!

Update: the Senate passed S.216 and sent it to the House.
The operative language of the bill is:

Any person who violates subsection (a), (b), (c), or (k) of section 301 with respect to any food--(A) knowingly and intentionally to defraud or mislead; and (B) with conscious or reckless disregard of a risk of death or serious bodily injury, shall be fined under title 18, United States Code, imprisoned for not more than 10 years, or both.'
Update: This cogent comment by Attorney Diane M. Miller further suggests that HR.1364 needs to be amended to better protect health free speech:

NHFA opposes H. R. 1364 Science and Free Speech bill because it continually uses the term "legitimate scientific research” as the threshold for “permission to speak”. The better solution is to support 2010 HR 3394 which protects speech in the marketplace, as long as it is truthful and not misleading. “Legitimate scientific research” can be an extremely arguable term and will be abused and will be interpreted under conventional scientific rubrics. The bill will work to further entrench our freedom of speech prohibitions into the existing conventional science paradigm. It will once more insist that if you don't have "legitimate scientific research" (as interpreted by the FDA), then you will not be able to speak the truth about dietary supplements. Dietary supplements will continue to be construed to be legally considered “drugs” if a person says what they can do. This is a bill that could even more entrench the "evidenced based medicine model" that international forums are promoting.

Educate Congress: NO Federal Debt Ceiling Increase; No Funding for Food Control Law!

Educate Congress: NO Federal Debt Ceiling Increase;
No Funding for Food Control Law!

Natural Solutions Foundation
Your Voice of Global Health & Food Freedom™

Action item:

The follow message is from Natural Solutions Foundation President (and Oath Keeper) Maj. Gen. Bert Stubblebine (US Army, Ret.):

This is a crucial moment in the history of the Republic.

“HHS Secretary Sibelius just admitted the “Obamacare” law, passed but not read by Congress in 2010, includes a $105 Billion authorization for the nationalization of health care and also a $16 Billion slush fund for the Secretary to use. To prevent Sibelius from using her slush fund, which has to be funded by borrowing (since the government is running 40% in the red) we urge you to help educate Congress to NOT increase the debt ceiling to prevent the back-door funding of the evil Food Control Law (misnamed the FDA Food “Safety” Modernization Act of 2010.”


The Federal Govt’s control over the States has been predicated on two factors: the Carrot (Federal spending) and the Stick (overwhelming military force, as it’s had since the 1860s).

Where does the Fed Govt get the money it needs to exercise control over state and local govt employees, such as food safety officials? How does it have the power to force us to accept GMO “Phude” (it looks like food; maybe even smells and tastes a bit like food… but it is not!)?

Not so much from taxes anymore. It was John M. Keynes who opined that governments didn’t need taxes to run, since central banks (like the Federal Reserve) could print up all the money they needed; taxes were needed in this view to “sop up” all that fiat currency in order to slow price inflation. No doubt, the Federal authorities will opt for more fiat money creation to maintain the control dollars create.

On one hand Federal grants to the states are tightening (”unfunded mandates”) while on the other hand, the central authorities seek to exercise even more control over the localities.

[Example: the new Food Control Law (misnamed the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act) provides for "contracts" between the FDA and local food safety officials to fund and control the local officials.]

So, if we are to give the States a chance to reassert state sovereignty, the Federal juggernaut needs to be held back.

How? By limiting its credit. More specifically, by no longer enabling its borrowing addiction. Yes, the Government of the United States of America is behaving exactly like any other addict… And with addicts, there is just one thing to do: JUST SAY NO!

All it takes is a House majority willing to say NO! and mean it.


This Action Item allows you to send messages to your Congressperson and Senators.

It tells them the Federal Govt is addicted to borrowing ever more fiat dollars, and the only thing we can do when dealing with an addict is to say: NO!

Please send this link to all your contacts; take this Action Item viral!
