It transpires that leading Libertarian websites have been catastrophically hemorrhaging visitors over the last 18 months. Gold buggery is definitely on the wane and this means that the classical enemy of Populist Monetary Reform may be on the way out. The Goldites have been confusing the Populists for 150 years.
This is the chance of an era to find common ground for a widely supported Monetary Reform Movement.

Here are two stunning Alexa graphs. Lewrockwell.com:

Gary North is also down from about 30,000 to 60,000.
Surely Lew Rockwell’s site and Mises.org  are at the heart of Libertarian agitation. They showed solid growth up to late 2011 when they started bleeding visitors. It must be remembered that this was during the Paul campaign, that could have seen the Goldites take over the Republican party, should…

The Daily Bell calls it quits…

In an amazing development, the Daily Bell editor Anthony Wile has just announced the Daily Bell is over. He’s pulling the plug, moving on to other ventures.

Anthony Wile says ‘hasta la vista’.

Of course, they have their own agenda and we can’t tell why, but the simple fact is: the Daily Bell never recovered from the fierce debates that raged in the first half of 2012.

When the first discussions started in December 2011, they were growing explosively and already close to the top 30,000 on Alexa, which is very high for high class conspiracy sites.

When I at the time picked them for some serious chatting about the basic Austrian propositions I did so for a simple reason: they were the leading outlet offering high end analysis of the NWO from an Austrian perspective, combined with a rational, courteous tone of voice. Rockwell and other outlets avoid…

Tom WoodsFrom Tom Woods’ April 15, 2013 article, The Greenbackers’ Fake Quote Industry, picked up by LewRockwell.com the following day, I made the following comments, to which Woods responded to:

Bill Still tried to get fake quotations removed from his documentary, The Money Masters, but the copyright holder wouldn’t allow it, for reasons we can only surmise. In 2011, he created this page dedicated to exposing false monetary quotations (http://s6.zetaboards.com/Bill_Still_Reforum/topic/1177385/1/) so it’s good to see that you’ve joined forces with a Greenbacker in the interests of intellectual honesty, Tom.

To which Woods responded:

I happily concede that this speaks well of Bill Still.

Then, I commented:

In 2009, I exposed the fake Jefferson quote you cited above (http://fauxcapitalist.com/2009/10/28/what-thomas-jefferson-said-about-private-banks/) after hearing it so many times and deciding to do my own research and conceding that it must be fake if the word…

The last post generated some thoughtful commentary so I feel the need to elaborate upon it and share some further information. Many will completely misunderstand me but a few will get it and may feel a desire to press into these uncomfortable areas further. Please consider reading the following books and articles to help you figure my perspective out:

End the Fed: a Trojan Horse destroying the Truth Movement from within

May 3, 2013 § Leave a comment

Originally posted on Real Currencies:

The Truth Movement is probably the biggest problem the Money Power dealt with in a long while. But it is being attacked from all sides and from within. Libertarianism and the End the Fed crowd are a Trojan Horse and the most insidious threat the Truth Movement faces. It happened because we still have not come to grips with ‘the dismal science’, economics, and we must pass the final frontier in truth-seeking: Usury.

The Truth Movement rose in the aftermath of 9/11. The Internet allowed the few mavericks in the know out there a platform and the trauma of the 9/11 attacks gave them an audience. It became the cause truth-seekers from all over the world rallied around.

Not only were the perpetrators, the Zionists and the Neo-Cons led by the Bush clan, quickly established, but also a larger picture arose. Zionist and US Empire conquest of the Middle East…

Gary North demonstrates the principle of “publish or perish”

April 30, 2013 § Leave a comment

Publish or perishIn academic circles, there’s the principle of “publish or perish,” meaning that academics have to regularly publish scholarly articles in order to keep their jobs, whether or not they are quality articles, and that, by implication, quantity is often more important than quality.

Austrian School economist, Dr. Gary North, demonstrates this principle.

His December 28, 2012 LewRockwell.com article, Retired Couple Turn Into World Traveling Nomads, is only 158 words, and looks like the work of a fifth-grader. Here is a sample of his “high-quality” writing:

I like my lifestyle. I spend most of my time in my basement office. I write. I read. I don’t go anywhere.

I would pay a lot of money not to travel. Fortunately, I don’t have to. I get to stay home for free.

My view of travel is simple: if you want to see the world, rent travel videos. Or watch YouTube.
