The Zeitgeist

Letter From a Birmingham Museum

By Ben Hunt | July 3, 2018 | 11 Comments

MLK Day is a uniquely American holiday, a national day of remembrance for the fundamental civil rights that bind American citizens together as one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for ALL.

MLK Day reminds us of the foundations of a UNITED States of America, a reminder that has never been more important to take into our hearts.

It’s not too late, you know. We can still find that unifying narrative of what America can – and should – mean.

The American Medical Association is not a charitable organization.

The American Medical Association is not an educational organization.

The American Medical Association is a tax-exempt hedge fund and licensing corporation, designed from the ground up to enrich its executives and serve its own bureaucratic interests.

The Grifters, Chapter 3 – Election Prediction

By Ben Hunt | November 9, 2020 | 31

By Ben Hunt | October 5, 2020 | 26

2020 has awakened us to the Black Days constructed while we slept.

Now we change the entire freakin’ world.

For ourselves, yes. For our children, even more.

By Rusty Guinn | September 28, 2020 | 22

The Projection Rackets will say that the solution to two-party dominance and the erosion of political self-determination is, like everything else, is to vote. Express yourself! Don’t you believe in democracy?

The Projection Racket, Pt. 1

By Rusty Guinn | September 14, 2020 | 23

Some of us are uncomfortable with BITFD, and that’s OK. Small-c conservatives should be uncomfortable. Small-l liberals should be uncomfortable.

August 20, 2020

More than any other company, Facebook is undermining our democracy and our most integral political rights.

More than any other company, Facebook has bought and paid for political cover at the highest levels of American, Indian and European government, political cover that prevents any of the actions we might take as a society to rid ourselves of this cancer.
