Listen to Karen on Freedom's Phoenix

Click here to listen to Karen between 3 - 5PM March 31.

Freedom's Phoenix -- Global Edition webassets/Republic_not_Demo.jpg
"Uncovering the Secrets and Exposing the Lies"

Karen regarding a Central Bank and the Federal Reserve Board:

Jefferson warned against a central bank of the United States, saying, “I sincerely believe that banking institutions are more dangerous than standing armies; and that the principle of spending money to be paid by posterity in the name of funding, is but swindling futurity on a large scale.”

$100 Billion DOD budget would still be biggest in world.

By William Lind

An achievable target would be a defense budget of around $100 billion. That would still be the largest in the world. But the Pentagon’s welfare queens would have to look for real jobs—not just the vast surplus of field grade and senior officers, but the DOD civilians, hordes of contractors, and best of all the lobbyists of Gucci gulf.

Valuable Lessons from new Senator Rand Paul

Interview on Reason TV: First question: You are trying to cut spending by $500 Billion, why are your cuts so small? Watch the video for answer.

My favorite section discribing the political party (dis)functions...

Issues are more important than party. There are a lot of people out there who want somebody who believes passionately in small limited constitutional government. People want to be left alone from the nanny state. But they are not all republican, some of them are independent, some libertarian, some may be Democrats as well.

You see polls where people say they don’t like the rhetoric or partisanship. What they don’t like is ‘empty partisanship’. They don’t mind if we disagree on an issue. I don’t think they mind us having a spirited discussion on the issues, they don’t like us to yell. But what they don’t want is me disliking you just because you are a democrat or a libertarian.

They want me to engage on issues. So it is more important what the issues are than what any party wants. I agree with the tea party in dishing out equal parts chastisement to both parties because both parties have let us down on spending and debt.

It's Only a Temporary Government Program

Borrowing directly from Judge Andrew Napolitano's 2010 book Lies the Government Told You, is this list of "Temporary" Government Programs: webassets/Judge_N_Lies_book.jpeg

#1 Taxation

#2 Rent Control

#3 Social Security

Worth the read! Excerpt from page 166:

"Through income taxes, the government taxes our personal production, only to distribute our hard-earned cash to others (often wastefully). This is an oppressive infringement on personal liberty and one that we should not passively accept. The idea of abolishing income taxes is hardly radical. The Founding Fathers did not support them, and they are a relatively new custom in America. Nevertheless the only politicians who had the backbone to suggest such a policy in the 2008 presidential election were Ron Paul and Bob Barr."

Health Care Through Central Planning: A Helpful Analogy

by Karen Kwiatkowski

Posted at LewRockwell.com

The Bush buyouts were no surprise, nor should it be surprising that the insanity continues at home and abroad under Obama. After all, when you join a club, you do so because you like the way it does things and how it makes you feel, not because you want to make radical changes. Obama's pledge of "Change!" was certainly a cruel joke on the masses of naïve believers in government who live, like picket-fenced housewives, in a world made substantial through dreams.

Rumsfeld spares with Napolitano, Stewart, Mitchell on his book tour.

by Karen Kwiatkowski

I don’t know how much Rumsfeld talks about Cheney in his memoirs of the Iraq war years. I do know that long after Cheney and Rumsfeld are paid for their memoirs, we the people are left with a history of lies and a persistent occupation that makes our own country less safe, less respected, less loved, and way more broke.
