"In a time of universal deceit - telling the truth is a
revolutionary act."
- George Orwell

There is much hullabaloo about America's secret NSA surveillance programs and their spying on 320 million Americans and billions of others worldwide. See
http://finance.yahoo.com/news/hack-everyone-everywhere-nsa-whistleblower-000644289.html

Why this should be a shock to American's and others who've had their eyes and ears opened for the past 19 years is beyond us. Maybe those shocked have been watching too much football, baseball or American Idol to pay attention to such dire policies spying on Americans has and continues to cause. Its getting worse and will continue to get worse and not better. How much is enough to 'protect' Americans? With your government there will NEVER be enough! One needs to confront this.

The first step in getting better is to recognize you have a problem. 99% of Americans believe or want to believe in their government. They believe their governments' lies and deceits, that they'll get a decent paying job, that the economy will get better, the dollar will retain its value, believe their government lies about the unemployment numbers and not the real number of unemployed or underemployed, as well as government's explaining away conspiracies, false flags and making excuses for surveillance programs ad infinitum.

For those that didn't know this already, America has the world's largest prison population. The United States has less than 5 percent of the world's population, yet it has almost a quarter of the world's prisoners. Further America is the only country in the world, and this includes Israel, where one is molested by TSA like thugs, bodily searching persons, children and even infants as young as 2 and 3 years old.

The Biggest Lie Ever Sold to the American Public

The US has been lying to all of you for decades now and everyone worldwide is paying for those lies. We're not talking about some kooky conspiracy theory... we're talking about inflation. By understating inflation, the Federal Government and Federal Reserve have done three things:
1. Exaggerated your economic growth.
2. Lied about the true cost of living in the US.
3. Intentionally devalued the USD causing worldwide price inflation
and loss of value for those non Americans holding dollar denominated assets.

Regarding number 1, every time the US prints GDP growth numbers, it adjusts this data for inflation. The reason for this is that if the economy grows at 10%, but prices also rise at 10%, then there really hasn't been any actual growth.

To deal with this, the US adjusts its GDP measures for inflation to make it appear as if they're objective. The only problem is that the US adjusts GDP using a phony inflation number that is much lower than reality.

A great example is last quarter when you were told that the GDP grew at an annual rate of 0.1%. The reality is that if you used realistic inflationary measures, the US economy SHRANK at a rate of over -1% last quarter. Yes, negative 1%. The worst GDP print since 2009.

The same lie has been extended to the US population about your standard of living. For decades now you've been told that you were getting wealthier because incomes were growing and asset prices like stocks and real estate were rising.

However, the reality is that inflation was the source for much of this "growth." The US Dollar has lost nearly 20% of its value in the last decade. The end result is all of us are paying much more for EVERYTHING. But we're being told that we're actually richer because incomes are up

This is why understating inflation is a HUGE LIE: it is a lie to all of us that our living standards are improving when in fact they're not.

However the good news is that the main stream press is FINALLY beginning to report on this. Those who know the price of everything and the value of nothing are said to be cynics. Americans can be forgiven for being a bit cynical, though, when it comes to prices. Their own cost of living rarely seems to be as low as official statistics claim it is. The consumer-price index for February is seen rising 0.2% month on month, excluding volatile food and energy costs. That would bring the year-on-year pace to 2%.

A change to the inflation-measuring process 30 years ago by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, Uncle Sam's arbiter of prices, is starting to raise eyebrows again. Since 1983, house prices haven't been part of the consumer-price index. Instead, the BLS calculates "owners' equivalent rent," a mix of actual rents and what homeowners guess their homes would fetch if rented. -

Look around you. The cost of everything is increasing dramatically. Gas prices are UP. Home prices are UP. Healthcare costs are UP. Energy prices area UP. Everything you need to survive is UP. Forget the Fed's CPI measure. Inflation is here now. And things are only going to be getting worse going forward. History has shown us countless times that you cannot print money without prices soaring. There is not one single instance in which currency devaluation has not done this. And the US Federal Reserve is now printing $84 billion every single month.

What effect do you think this will have on the cost of everything? Make no mistake, now is the time to be preparing your arse and assets for this. Inflation can take its time to arrive. But once it does... things move very very quickly.

All of this isn't really anything new as we've been harping about these privacy, other intrusions and lies, advising/warning readers for 19 years plus now. Previously some called us fear mongers, others anti-American and others who didn't like what we published... THE TRUTH! Now people thank us for letting them know the truth and keeping them informed and updated about such important and critical matters, other than what the main stream press spews out. All one needs to do is to open their eyes and ears and as written in John 8:32, "Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free."

If you're an American and choose to live in that country; or a foreigner electing to live in or voluntary visit the USA, are willing to allow yourself to be subjected to one of the most intrusive police like states the world has seen, that is your prerogative.

However for the billions of us who aren't Americans and do not wish to be an unwilling participant in one of America's many polices that has been forced upon us is another matter. For example, America's war on drugs, war on terrorism, endless wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya and Syria, plus the war on money laundering, FATCA monetary policies and the numerous false flag operations by the biggest Terrocrats of all, the US authorities ad nauseam, all of which causes billions of us to be unwilling participants in such American policies.

For those of you who don't agree with this, before you delete this missive, please answer this question;

Why is it that since the end of World War II, less than a single lifetime, has America gone from being the most beloved nation on earth to the most despised country on the planet? Some might say others are jealous of America, its wealth and power, but are they really? Perhaps some are, but for the vast majority I think not.

I can state unequivocally from my long personal experiences, that IMHO one of the major reasons why America has become one of the most despised countries on the planet is because of American policies that have and continues to cause very unpleasant consequences on the billions of unwilling participants around the world that wish to be left alone and not be a part of America's policies, be they good or bad.

It's not as clear cut as former President George Bush said on November 6th 2001: "You are either with us or against us"

It is far more than that. Billions of non Americans, ourselves included, previously looked to America as the land of the Free, opportunity and a country that fought and many died for in two World Wars helping to free lands taken over by tyrants.

"It was in the early days of the fighting in Vietnam that a Vietcong officer said to his American prisoner: "You were our heroes after the War. We read American books and saw American films, and a common phrase in those days was 'to be as rich and as wise as an American'. What happened?"

An American might have been asked something similar by a Guatemalan, an Indonesian or a Cuban during the ten years previous, or by a Uruguayan, a Chilean or a Greek in the decade subsequent. The remarkable international goodwill and credibility enjoyed by the United States at the close of the Second World War was dissipated country by country, intervention by intervention."
- William Blum

Can America return to and remain the land of the free and brave? There's no doubt there are remains brave Americans who are clearly trying like Edward Snowden, William Binney and Private Bradley Manning. To them and many others, we take our hat off to them. However the fact of the matter is that the once land of the free has witnessed a dramatic loss of personal and financial freedoms, civil liberties and much more.

We trust those Americans and others reading our humble words will do something to stop this downward trend and help America return to being that beloved country the world looked up to. Only time will tell if this happens.

In the meantime, fortunately for those of us who chose not to live in a country with such abuses, there remains a places in the world where the government doesn't spy on you, grab every piece of financial, personal and social information about you, track, record, listen and store information on every call and email sent and received 24/7; places where you can walk into a bank and deposit or withdrawal a good amount of cash without the bank having to file a suspicious activity report on you; airports where the security personal apologize for asking to wave their wands over you, where you are free to drink and smoke without being fined (we don't smoke nor like smoking,) and places that are not controlled by a nanny - big brother state telling you what to eat or not eat, what to drink or not drink, to spy on your neighbors, what you can or cannot do, and especially how to raise your children or punish you for trying to home school them, plus much more.

What are you going to do about it?

See you next issue
