DTOM Contributor Brandon Raub Arrested By FBI For Facebook Posts

I just got word that apparently one of the contributors on this site has been arrested/detained over Facebook posts. The Police, FBI and Secret Service swarmed in and took Brandon Raub to John Randolph Mental Hospital. This patriotic Marine had posted 5 posts on the Dont-Tread-On.Me blog linked below. Just glancing over them they seem to be of the religious and patriotic fight for truth and justice. He used the blog to have people join his FaceBook group and even did and promoted a Richmond Liberty March.

I looked through my email to see if there was any emails between the two of us and I did not find any, although I am sure there was as I would not have given him access to post on the blog if I did not.

There are a couple of lessons I want everyone to know form what little information we have from this incident.

1. Delete Facebook. I did a video for The Greatest Truth Never Told series called Delete Facebook giving a non conspiracy reason why people should quit FaceBook as it is destroying our lives. Now you should all see the conspiracy reason why you should Delete Facebook. This incident proves that it is just a huge monitoring tool for the Elite to track and build a profile of you. You give willingly the details of your political leaning, friends, interests. The hidden influence of the CIA through In-Q-Tel is becoming more and more visible.

2. This is designed to create a chilling effect to people speaking out and more importantly to keep sheeple from look at us for the Truth. I stated in the 3 Coming False Flags that the Elite would eventually criminalize or restrict our freedom of speech of the Freedom Movement. The Elite know the economic collapse is going to bring about the Anger Phase of the Awakening. They are actively preparing for riots and civil war. The thing that I find amazing is that these .gov people don’t ask why they are preparing for Civil War? What could make people so mad to want to go to war? Well since the Elite know the collapse of the dollar is coming they are conditioning their minions for that collapse. What these people should realize is that their paychecks are going to bounce and their entire life’ savings are going to be robbed.

3. Non violent, non compliance is a smart and effective strategy. Walking away from the paradigm is the best way of resisting the paradigm. Anyone physically pushing back will be taken down as it is of the same consciousness of those that are spreading debt and death throughout the world. Go peacefully if you are arrested, but question them on why and for what reason. You ask the questions and you should give no answers. You still have the right to keep quiet and ask for a lawyer. Unless you are really good under pressure I would suggest you just say nothing accept for asking for your lawyer. Also family members need to shut their mouths too as they immediately go after their friends and family in phone interviews.

4. Video tape everything you can. If you are confronted record every aspect not only to protect yourself, your rights and keep the story straight but also for a future law suit. You have every right to record every confrontation, I would be discreet about it because you don’t want an officer break the law and take your evidence. This is also very important to help keep your narrative straight as you will be told a lot of lies along the way.

5. Apparently questioning the government is a mental condition. Brandon was immediately brought to John Randolph Mental Hospital. The use of psychology was very common to political tool the Soviets and the Nazis to silence political opposition. Look at what Vladimir Putin is doing in Russia.

6. You get more flak the closer you get to the target. We must be coming very close to the collapse date with all of the things that are going on. I recommend that people stock up on food and gear and get ready to ride out the storm.

I hope to get more details as they develop and eventually I hope to thoroughly de-brief Brandon as soon as he can.

    “What America once was is not what America is anymore. This is what it represented to the world through the lenses of time and human history and why so many people wanted to come here: it represented a physical place and an environment where people could literally own property and prosper because there were no laws and there was no bureaucracy restricting their liberty. There were no taxes and you were free to all of the fruits of your labor. You could live under God and grow as a person and develop your land and grow your own food, and prosper as you choose to exercise wisdom and industry. Our founding fathers understood the sacred rights of mankind as they were written by the whole volume of human nature, a nature that was bestowed on us by Jesus. God told Adam, “Look, I have given you every seed-bearing plant on the surface of the entire earth, and every tree whose fruit contains seed,” and also “Be fruitful, multiple, fill the earth, and subdue it.”

    The heart of God is for people to own their own land, and for people to keep all the fruits of their labor, both literally and figuratively. Isaiah 65:21, “People will build houses and live; they will plant vineyards and eat their fruit. They will not build and others live [in them]; they will not plant and others eat.” The founding fathers thought that God has guided America through all the stages of its infancy as a nation, and that perhaps God had specifically guided human history to a point where it humankind could reap the benefits of the land. Literally there was so much land that you could come to America, build a house, grow crops, develop industry, and simply live under God, free and full of life and happiness. As per John Adams, “I always consider the settlement of America with reverence and wonder, as the opening of grand scene and design in Providence for the illumination of the ignorant, and the emancipation of the slavish part of mankind all over the earth.”

    The Constitution was constructed to restrict a government from encroaching on their (and our) economic liberty as given to us by the Creator. Many of them favored state power because they rationalized that you could restrict a states government from encroaching on liberty more easily than a large federal government. The civil war was fought because a group of states took issue with the growing power of the federal government because they recognized that their liberty was at stake. It is the epitome of irony, because those states were predominantly slave owning states. They were restricting the hearts and minds and economic liberty of blacks. Slavery was and is an affront against nature and the heart of God, because in order to keep someone enslaved you must keep their minds enslaved and their minds cannot grow as god intended.

    The heart of God is for people to be free and prosper, and to grow in wisdom, and to be married and have children and to live life. The heart of God is for people to pour into the people around them and encourage their growth and economic liberty. I doubt our country realized what we lost in terms of what we lost in ourselves that as free men and women we didn’t put an end to slavery, and the fact it took an amendment to the constitution to end the idea that you as a man could own another man or woman’s body. It goes against human nature and the very fabric of the human heart and the way God intended for us to live. It hurts my heart that as men and women before the kings of kings the citizens of our early republic simply didn’t release their slaves.

    Imagine the number of black people, and consequently the nation, that would have prospered by being introduced to the ideas of liberty and property rights. There is another economic system to operate under, and that is the economic system of Jesus. We could have grown alongside of each other and blessed each other. My deepest hope is that our country begins to understand liberty and the free market again, because liberty creates the environment for people to prosper and be free.”

    The heart of God is seen throughout the history of the world. He was there through the rise of the Absolutism of the Babylonians and Persians, through the rise of Logic and Reason in the Greek and Roman Empires, through the warfare and Kings of the Middle Ages, into the age of enlightenment, and especially into America. To understand America we have to view it through the full lense of history. There had been several republics, many city states, many nations, many nomadic peoples, many empires, and many nation states, but there had never been a group of people, in the history of the whole world, who recognized the Kings of Kings and founded their government on ideas of Liberty, Common Sense, and the most fair of goverment systems, a constitutional republic. Does God favor a constitutional republic? I do not know. But I do know what he loves: Justice and Righteousness, Fairness, Fair Scales, Wisdom, Courage, Sacrifice, Manliness, Honesty, and Virtue. These are the kinds of characteristics a free people must develop in themselves to maintain their freedom and their republican goverment. I believe firmly in the principle of you reap what you sow, and that there are natural truths that God has written on the hearts of men since the beginning of time.

    America went onto to become the most prosperous nation in the history of the world, because they sowed a good foundation. They sowed a foundation of Liberty, a Free Market, and Limited Goverment. It was only natural that we would elevate ourselves over all of the nations of the world. Liberty and a Free Market provide the context in which a free people can educate themselves, develop their own land and industry, elevate those around them, and prosper economically. It is the basis for all production, science, and the general emancipation of the minds of men.

    But God was trying to do something more! But we missed the big picture of what God was trying to do. I believe God wanted to set America apart as an example of what a free people, full of wisdom, virtue, learning, and liberty would be able to accomplish. I believe America missed its full greatness. By not allowing blacks to grow and prosper alongside of us, we cut ourselves off from the bigger blessings God was waiting to give us. I believe he wanted to show the world what mankind could become if they embraced the the truths he had laid out since the beginning of time. The King of Kings granted us our rights. Who were we to take them away from other men and women? We prospered under the principals God had long ago established even though we choose not to abolish slavery when we laid the foundation for our government. How much more would God have blessed us had we done so?

    “The sacred rights of mankind are not to be rummaged for among old parchments or musty records. They are written, as with a sunbeam, in the whole volume of human history, by the hand of Divinity itself, and can never be erased or obscured by mortal power.”

    Alexander Hamilton

    “We cannot but acknowledge that God hath graciously patronized our cause and taken us under his special care, as he did his ancient covenant people.”

    Samuel Langdon, The Republic Of The Israelites

    The Kings of Kings wanted to establish something in America that would have altered the entire course of human history. And he did, but it was not quite what it was meant to be.

    Why I Am Starting This

    Who I Am

    Here is Link to What We are Doing on Facebook! November 13th, Richmond Virginia.

    http://www.facebook.com/groups/130884260347280/

    I believe this is one of the most crucial times in the history of the United States. We need to rediscover the concept of Liberty. We were born free from day one. No one owns the fruit of our labor. No one owns our children’s futures and money through fraudulent government debt, and a interest generated from loans printed out of thin air. No one owns our personal decisions that effect our personal liberty. The King of Kings granted us our rights and free men and as free women. We were created with certain unalienable rights. Those are the rights of property, life, liberty, personal freedoms, the pursuit of happiness, and perhaps most importantly, the right to defend ourselves from infringements on our liberties. There must be an awakening to the ideas of Liberty in this country. Liberty has been tucked neatly away and stored like a book on some old forgotten shelf, but the idea is powerful. I intend to show America and the world that the idea of Liberty is still alive in the hearts and minds of Americans.

  • Economics 101

    Most of the economics we teach at American Universities is Keynesian or fiat economics. I don’t subscribe to it. Especially when you consider a quote from the guy the entire system was named after, John Maynard Keynes:

    “ Lenin is said to have declared that the best way to destroy the capitalist system was to debauch the currency. By a continuing process of inflation, governments can confiscate, secretly and unobserved, an important part of the wealth of their citizens. By this method they not only confiscate, but they confiscate arbitrarily; and, while the process impoverishes many, it actually enriches some. The sight of this arbitrary rearrangement of riches strikes not only at security but [also] at confidence in the equity of the existing distribution of wealth.”

    Here are some ideas I want to share with you, a lot of it is based on Austrian Economics, the antithesis to Keynesian Economics. (Friedrich Hayek shared a Nobel Peace Prize in Economics in 1974 and was an Austrian Economist.)

    Here are the Topics:

    1) An economy grows by people saving to fuel later production. Savings are the bedrock of a stable society. You put off now so that you can have more later. All consumption must be funded by one of two things: savings or fiat dollars printed out of thin air.

    This is the way the banking would work in a sound money society: People sacrifice and save money in a bank. The banks would have plenty of money to lend so they would lower ‘the cost of borrowing’ or interest rates. People who would want to take a risk with a good idea, would secure a loan (at interest of course because the banks are a business), and start their business or factory or farm. That societies’ economy would grow.

    As all of the available capital for investing and production gets used up, the banks would raise their interest rates or ‘the cost of borrowing,’ because there is less to go around. The societies’ economy would go through a slight contraction and a period of trimming the fat, so to speak. The Free Market would reward the best and the brightest of existing businesses. The free market would essentially reward efficency, innovation, better management. In this contraction period, people will start to save money again. (Savings always go up in hard economic times.) And then the process would begin all over again.

    2) Now, the nature of a federal banking system is to regulate / manipulate interest rates. (Never mind the idea of inflation for now.) The original idea of Keynesians was to control the timeline of those periods of contractions or to streamline them artificially, and get one long period of consistent growth instead of having to deal with recessions.

    The Chairman of the Federal Reserve is basically a central economic planner. Instead of letting the free market dictate the cost of interest rates, he control them. (A lot of power to give to someone who’s not held responsible to the people). The chairman of the fed’s job (all evil intentions aside) is to juggle interest rates to maintain the direction of the economy he thinks the economy should be going. Notice that fed has been keeping interest rates at all time low for several years now.

    If the fundamentals of our economy were strong, would it be necessary to try and coerce the free market into something it didn’t want to do? No, he is attempting to stimulate phony economic growth. Our entire economic system is designed to grow with the expansion of debt. Government debt and individual debt in our nation cannot expand anymore; we are completely maxed out. The economy has finally had enough, and the American people can tell that something is wrong but cannot figure out what. It is because we have gone into debt at all levels to fuel economic growth. The real goal behind this is and was to enslave the American people to debt.

    During the banking crisis of 2007 the market was trying to signal it’s time for a badly badly put off contraction. Essentially, the free market was trying to signal that it was necessary for the American people to embrace a time of saving and under-consuming. (If you remember during the bailouts, the banks didn’t want to lend the money out? I personally believe it’s because they understood that the market didn’t need all that extra credit .) The recession would have been really bad, but now it is going to be much worse because the system was then and is more so now maxed out to the hilt.

    3) Consumption must be either funded through real savings or borrowing. We borrow through hiding our inflation overseas. Because the dollar is the world’s reserve status, we are able to print money without dealing with the consequence: inflation. We literally export our inflation. Every central bank of the world holds US dollars on reserve because to purchase oil you must use dollars, and also most international transactions are done in dollars.

    If you wanted to purchase a TV, you would need to get the money from one of two places: borrowing or saving. The same things applies on a national level.

    The nation’s economic spin doctor’s like to reference the GDP or ‘Gross Domestic Product’ as a good signal for the strength of a nation’s economy. But consider the fact GDP encompasses ‘consumer spending.’

    How is spending a signal for economic growth. I can go out right now and spend $10,000 via credit cards on goods that do not produce me anything. Is that a good indicator of my economic well being? How much I can get into debt?

    It’s not an accurate picture. You need to look at the nation’s Balance of Trade and the savings of private citizens. Having effectively ruined our great industrial capacity through over-regulation and taxation (and also a weakening currency); people like Ben Bernanke like talk about the strength of the economy in terms of how much were spending.

    If you consider that 60% to 70% of our GDP is Consumer Spending, where to we keep getting the money to spend and buy things from?

    The answer is inflation:

    The fed is able to flood money into economic system because of our government’s massive dual welfare / military complex state. The end result is that there is constantly much more money floating around in the economy, and it gives the illusion that the prices of things are rising. It’s an illusion as well. What is really happening is your purchasing power is shrinking.

    Basically, they are keeping the system flushed with dollar to keep the illusion up. We are not special. Fiat currencies have historically always collapsed.

    Our entire economic system is based on debt. We are encouraged as a nation to go into debt as a lifestyle: cars, house, school, not to mention credit cards.

    4) The last and final thing I want to talk about it the fact that a fiat currency and wars go together. One war leads to massive inflation which leads to diverted capital and re-directed capital, which leads to another, and continues the cycle. Let me explain: Historically you have not had one without the other for the entire course of human history.

    A Federal Reserve type banking system makes it much easier for governments to go to war, because you don’t have to take out loans from other governments (selling treasury bonds) or raise taxes on your citizens.

    They have a magic credit card. Wars with a central bank basically result in a massive increase in available capital which creates one thing: inflation.

    Here is the key: War diverts capital that would have been invested in something like an automobile factory, refrigerator factory, for example, and puts it into a sector of the economy that it wouldn’t have normally been in. That capital comes from somewhere. Instead of the free market dictating the best place for that capital and investment, it’s redirected because of the war.

    A federal reserve leads to war, which leads to a distortion of the free market. A fed leads to another war which leads to more of the economy being diverted from where it would normally be doing the most efficient and profitable things. A bigger portion of nationals capital and production is diverted for war purposes. And the trend continues.

    A couple of things are happening simultaneously:

    1) Peoples purchasing power is being robbed. Obviously.

    2) A larger percentage of the nations industrial capacity is being diverted from its natural free state to fund the wars.

    3) The fed is able to flush the system with more paper dollars. The three feed into one another, until people begin to believe the lie that war is good for the economy. It’s a lie. It’s good for the politically well connected, the banks and corporations who are in position to profit from the war. If war was so good for the economy, why wouldn’t we just do away with bombing other nations and just build buildings in mojave desert.

    That way we could always have jobs for people to build the buildings and jobs for people to build the bombs and tanks we use to blow them up.

    The truth is all that capital must come from somewhere. In order to build a tank, you have to not build or upgrade a refrigerator or a radio. You have to take from someone or a certain area of the economy and divert the free market to fund war.

    There is a solution to all of this: Free and Sound Money and De-Regulating our Industry so we can compete. There is a silver lining (no pun intended). As our dollar is devalued our goods will become more competitive internationally. Our nation needs to embrace wisdom and common sense. I look forward to the day here shortly when we do so.
