to be transparent, devoid of the opulence frothed out by
today’s Corporate Media.
cultured and insightful man with a worldly sense, Ryan’s
unjaded approach offers common sense to the individual
racked by the ambiguous news cycle - a vicious and

An absolutely fantastic
video (far below) was just put out by Larkin Rose that was
created and submitted by "GeoShifter," and was the winner of his

billions more have been robbed, harassed, terrorized and otherwise
forcibly dominated and impressed by ruling classes… Including
democratically elected constitutional governments.
To create a huge all-powerful predator, which is what government
always is, in the name of stopping predators is simply INSANE. And
then the big powerful thing that you hoped would be a protector and
servant of the people, will be an oppressor and exploiter of the
That is what government
has always been and always will be until the people dare to let go
