In Part 1 of this post, Bob Ingraham portrayed the unique leadership of George Washington, without which our Republic would not exist. In this second part, Ingraham further explores the conspiracy conducted against Washington by Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and others.  The defeat of this conspiracy provides context for the insights concerning parties and faction set forth in Washington’s famous Farewell Address.

On February 22nd, our nation will observe the 290th anniversary of the birth of George Washington. In former and better times that birthday, as well as Abraham Lincoln’s, were rightfully celebrated as separate national holidays, days wherein we might contemplate the individual accomplishments of these two great leaders. To revive that tradition, and to provide a lesson which has great relevance to the crisis of today, we offer this short essay on the subject of leadership, in honor of the Father of our Nation.

Part 7 — Abraham Lincoln Conquers Inflation

Abraham Lincoln in 1861:

“On the side of the Union, it is a struggle for maintaining in the world, that form, and substance of government, whose leading object is, to elevate the condition of men—to lift artificial weights from all shoulders—to clear the path of laudable pursuit for all—to afford all, an unfettered start, and a fair chance, in the race of life.”

Part 6 — American Economics

The Divine Command from the Book of Genesis: 

   27.—So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

   28.—And God blessed them, and God said unto them, “Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.”

Part 5 — The Anglo-Dutch Financial Empire

In 1461, only nine years after the birth of Leonardo da Vinci, Louis XI ascended the throne of France, this at a time when the radiance of the Italian Renaissance was approaching its zenith. The reign of Louis coincided with—and was a lawful product of—that Renaissance. This was the beginning of the modern sovereign nation state and the beginning of modern economics. Louis authored a book, Le Rosier des Guerres (“The Rosebush of Wars”), wherein he defined the raison d'être of the state to act on behalf of the Common Good;  to act in such a way as to advance and improve the conditions of life of the people.

Part 4 — Hayek and Keynes: Two Peas in a Pod

“Come One. Come All. It’s the ‘Thrilla in Manilla’. It’s the great Ali vs. Frazier rivalry. Get your tickets today!”

This is how the imaginary rivalry between Friedrich Hayek and John Maynard Keynes has been popularized,—sort of as a Battle of the Titans, only now in the economic arena. But unlike the real Ali and Frazier, who bloodied each other unmercifully, this is a delusory myth designed for the credulous. The only blood that will be spilt will come from the victims of British imperial economics.

Part 3 — Hayek’s Constitution of Liberty:  The Worship of Oligarchical Culture

In this installment of the Hillsdale/Hayek series, my intention was to report on Hayek’s magnum opus, The Constitution of Liberty. I must begin, however, by claiming that I, Robert Ingraham, deserve some form of literary Purple Heart for having subjected myself to such a mind-damaging experience. The book is excruciatingly boring, shallow, and repetitive beyond belief. Written fifteen years after the Road to Serfdom, the Constitution contains nothing new whatsoever; only the same catchphrases and slogans, but now drawn out to an interminable 571 pages.

Part 2 — The Road to Serfdom:  Hayek—the Imperial Sophist

The first thing to understand about the “Austrian School” is that it doesn’t exist. What Hayek, von Mises and others put forward is not Austrian at all; it is imperial British Economics, specifically the economics of the 19th century British Empire.

Part 1 — Introduction:  What’s Wrong with Hillsdale College?

We are at a time when millions of Americans are outraged at government coercion over citizens’ lives, particularly the assaults on personal freedom and free speech. This ranges across the spectrum, from the vaccine mandates to the censorship and “de-platforming” now occurring on YouTube and throughout social media, to outright Satanic actions like suspending (or firing) teachers and school children for publicly stating that “there are only two genders.”  All rational people recognize these attacks on personal liberty and sanity as un-Constitutional, anti-American, and evil.

Establishment media outlets are now rife with reports that the COP-26 conference has failed, that nations are refusing to do what is necessary to “save the planet.”  It would seem that these media underlings have now all joined Greta Thunberg’s lunatic chorus.

Whether it is nations defending their sovereignty and their economies, or first responders in New York City defending their rights, things are not going well for the world's oligarchs. In this week's Strategic Overvier, Robert Ingraham will take up the latest developments in the battle for our future: The G20 Summit crashes and burns, further fiascos leading into COP26 Climate Summit, and the world-wide impact of Trump withdrawing from the Paris Climate Accords. Only the United States can pull together the forces to defeat the global oligarchy. Nothing is locked in if we retake the United States.

The time has come,' the Walrus said,

Of shoes — and ships — and sealing-wax —
      Of cabbages — and kings —
And why the sea is boiling hot —

published Will National Sovereignty Exist After COP26? in Watch 2021-10-19 20:27:21 -0400

It is very clear that the oligarchs viewed COP21 (where the Paris Climate Accords were signed) as "defining the agenda' and putting certain things into motion. President Trump pulled us out of those accords. Now, with Trump out of the Presidency, they view the Glasgow COP26 meeting as the time to implement that agenda—with ferocity—on every nation on Earth. They talk incessantly of "ratcheting up" and "acceleration."

published Lessons of the California Recall Fight in Watch 2021-09-14 18:19:06 -0400

The California recall tested all the assumptions and showed that the state is winnable ... but only by republicans (small "r" republicans) fighting against Empire, on exactly those terms.

An examination of the preliminary map of the recall vote shows, that despite massive fraud, California is no longer firmly in the grip of the Empire. Almost half of the state's counties voted for the recall.

The uniparty swamp is becoming desperate to defend CA Governor Newsom. While the fake-news media is telling you Newsom is sure to win, George Soros, Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, and Nancy Pelosi are all scrambling to do everything they can to defeat the recall. 

The recall of Newsom will be a major blow to uniparty establishment that has sold out our country to the globalists.

Panic is now stalking Governor Gavin Newsom and the other swamp creatures who rule over California as if it were their own personal fiefdom.  On September 14th California voters will go to the polls, with mail-in voting already ongoing, to decide if Gavin Newsom will be recalled,—removed from office, and replaced by the candidate who receives the most votes in a special election.  Months ago Newsom, the man with the hairdo and elitist self-entitlement, dismissed the recall as the certain-to-fail work of a handful of political malcontents and cranks.  Today public opinion polls show that the recall vote may succeed, and that support for the recall is spreading among registered Democrats, Hispanics, Asian-Americans and African-Americans.  Newsom’s braggadocio has vanished, replaced by fear.

Over the span of nine podcasts, Bob Ingraham and Michael Steger have explored the life and career of Abraham Lincoln. Particular emphasis has been placed on discussing the principles which guided Lincoln throughout his life. His devotion to the revolutionary precepts of the Declaration of Independence influenced his approach to economics, science, education, culture and almost every aspect of his personal life and political career. The critical importance of Lincoln, for today, goes far beyond merely refuting the lies and slanders of Critical Race Theory and the anti-American leftists. For it is in the life and the moral courage of Lincoln that we find the positive mission of the American Republic, the mission to which we must return if we are to save our nation.

The whole series can be found at The American Patriot section of our website.

In this conclusion of the Lincoln podcasts, we review key points concerning Lincoln's creation of the Republican Party, the Greenback national credit policy, Lincoln's triumph with the Emancipation Proclamation and more of Lincoln's wit and humor. All of this is highly relevant for those of us today who are committed to saving our Republic.

The principles of the Declaration of Independence, principles which Abraham Lincoln dedicated his life to defending, posed a deadly threat to the British Empire and to oligarchical rule. The American Civil War was not simply an internal crisis, but an attempt by the British Empire to destroy the American Republic. Lincoln knew this, and he faced that crisis with a quality of moral courage which we all can learn from today.
