Lavoy's brandAbout TinFoilCowboyHat.com: Inform Yourself. In society, one of the greatest guardians of freedom is truth. Learning more truth can replace worry with knowledge. Hopefully, we’re moving out of an archaic and barbaric era and into a more humane and open era… and that won’t happen without resistance; people addicted to status, power, and control will fight it. With more understanding, we can recognize that when we encounter it, we can deal with it better, we can make better sense of our world, recognize genuine options, recognize our obligations, and make better choices on how, when or if we allow it to affect us and our loved ones.

Step Out of the Matrix: Purpose or Perish "We already know how to feed, clothe, and comfortably house every human being on the planet ~ YES. We have the technology to feed, clothe, and supply energy to an ever-growing population for the next seven billion years. Our problem is not knowledge or resources. There is no actual need to fight over resources." We do not have to buy in to the paradigm of "scarcity" that we are fed by government, mainstream lifestyle and society - we can step out of the matrix and embrace the reality of "plenty." Once we realize this, we see that our collective and individual central problem ~ our challenge ~ is simply cooperation. "And this will remain a problem so long as governments control humanity." • Paul Rosenberg, FreemansPerspective • Sep 6th, 2016

Fish Are the Last to Notice the Water A single model of human life has dominated the West for thousands of years. This model is so common that it’s hard to make out at first. Here are its parts:

  • A small minority of men hold a monopoly on making rules everyone else will live by.
  • This minority enforces these rules on everyone else.
  • The minority extracts regular payments from everyone else.
  • This is said to be necessary for protection and justice.
  • The minority fails to provide justice on a daily basis
  • This minority regularly and often sends the children of the majority to fight in battles to the death.
  • A minority-aligned intellectual class assures the majority that this is the best that can be had and that it has been sanctified by some higher power (gods, ancestors, tradition, reason, experience, progress, or whatever).
  • No one is permitted to escape this model. Those who try are punished as traitors and heretics.
    AND YET ........ no one recognizes or is allowed to notice the EPIC FAILURE of this small minority model:
  • FAIL: Wars have continued throughout its entire reign.
  • FAIL: Justice has not been achieved.
  • FAIL: Justice has generally come closest in places furthest away from power centers.
  • FAIL: Human happiness has not noticeably increased.
  • FAIL: Even when science has broken out, it has been recaptured and forced to serve the model.
    (The internet, for example.)            • Paul Rosenberg, FreemansPerspective •
The Dissipation of Moral Energies: However well or poorly we use it, 98% of us hold morality as a central reference. The basic statement of morality is our Golden Rule of course: What is hateful to you, do to no one else. This was proclaimed by ancient Greeks, Chinese, Hebrews, and more or less every serious thinker since. And it’s a supremely simple dictum to live by. Why, then, moral confusion? There are many reasons of course, but all of them stem from a single source: the people and systems that cannot thrive under a simple and clear Golden Rule.            • Paul Rosenberg, FreemansPerspective •
tyranny VS liberty Wounded Knee. Regardless of your political sway, your stand on issues, or your ideology... it is important to realize that Wounded Knee was among the first federally backed gun confiscations in US history. It ended in the senseless murder of 297 people (mostly women, children and elders). What the government refers to as "gun control" is in reality the constitutionally prohibited government control of law-abiding citizens. This was written by an unknown person on Facebook, and was the first piece of information I saved and shared on this website. It is an amazing read.

No Explanations are Needed to Exercise Our Right to Keep and Bear Arms. For one thing, people are ultimately responsible for protecting themselves and those under their care. When an intruder enters your home with the intent to harm your family, the outcome directly affects you. It has no repercussions for the local police department. Courts have ruled that the police are not legally responsible for defending your home and loved ones. But this is a secondary rationale. The Founding Fathers wrote the Second Amendment with a much more important primary rationale: Having recently secured their independence from England, they knew their freedom had only been possible through the use of guns. No matter how sad or regrettable this truth is, it is still truth. All governments have a tendency to grow and consolidate power. Very rarely, if ever, do they reduce their authority on their own volition. Whether people are comfortable with the truth or not, the reality is our rights are ultimately preserved either through the use of force or under the threat of violence. Everyone responds to incentives, including governments. A government that knows its citizens have the means to rise up and abolish it if it gets out of line behaves differently than the government which rules over disarmed citizenry who must comply no matter what. This is human nature, and this is the current description of homo sapien society and civilization as we know it right now. ~ Tenth Amendment Center.

OathKeepers.org. Oath Keepers is a non-partisan association of current and formerly serving military, police, and first responders, who pledge to fulfill the oath all military and police take to “defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.” That oath, mandated by Article VI of the Constitution itself, is to the Constitution, not to the politicians, and Oath Keepers declare that they will not obey unconstitutional orders, such as orders to disarm the American people, to conduct warrantless searches, or to detain Americans as “enemy combatants” in violation of their ancient right to jury trial.

Free Movies; This library of public service documentaries will hopefully speak to anyone who finds merit in the U.S. Constitution. Find out why many Democrats and Republicans are going Independent or turning to the Libertarian Party in order to apply the best political philosophies whether such come from the Left or the Right. Our movies endeavor to highlight this trend and the benefits of a Constitutional Republic. If a movie does not align with the interests, values, cultural perspectives and/or prejudices of the control group that dominates the Hollywood studios, New York networks and the 6 mass media conglomerates that now saturate 90% of the market, it simply does not get financed, produced, distributed or promoted. This is why we produced the MAINSTREAM mini-series -- available here, but probably not "coming to a theater near you."

Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association. The CSPOA brings together the people with their peace officers, educating all in an effort to restore America peacefully for our posterity. The law enforcement powers held by the sheriff supersede those of any agent, officer, elected official or employee from any level of government when in the jurisdiction of the county. The vertical separation of powers in the Constitution makes it clear that the power of the sheriff even supersedes the powers of the President. Furthermore, it is this responsibility that grants a Sheriff the Constitutional authority to check and balance all levels of government within the jurisdiction of the County. And other peace officers, including police officers and others with arrest powers, join with the Sheriff and deputies, as Constitutional Guards, with one and the same mission: to protect life, liberty and property.

Judge Andrew NapolitanoTenth Amendment Center (TAC) A lot of people misunderstand the nature of their rights. The source. To the Founders, an understanding of NATURAL RIGHTS was essential. These rights pre-exist any government or document or decree. They knew that when the people view and understand their rights as a birthright rather than a gift from government, they’re much more likely to ignore government attempts to restrict or end them. Thomas Jefferson put it this way: “A free people claim their rights, as derived from the laws of nature, and not as the gift of their chief magistrate.” In other words, we the people need to learn how to exercise our rights whether the government wants us to or not. At the Massachusetts ratifying convention, Theophilus Parsons reinforced this view: “No power was given to Congress to infringe on any one of the natural rights of the people by this Constitution, and, should they attempt it without constitutional authority, the act would be a nullity, and could not be enforced.” Today, unfortunately, most Americans see it the other way around. They believe that rights only exist when government gives them a permission slip. Or, when the Supreme Court says they exist… until the judges change their mind. Their view is totally wrong. That’s why we believe it’s so important to share the truth with as many people as possible. We work to educate people on the proper role of government under the Constitution, and activate them to reject, resist and nullify all unconstitutional acts.

Body Counts
: The reason for all the body count conspiracies is because there are so many (bodies).

RFKPresident John F Kennedy was assassinated in 1963,
Malcolm X was assassinated in 1965,
Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated in 1968,
Senator Robert F Kennedy was assassinated in 1968.

The CIA Takeover of America in the 1960s is the Story of Our Times-
A Lie Too Big To Fail: The Real History of the Assassination of Robert F. Kennedy, by Lisa Pease. A book review presented by • Edward Curtin • April 2, 2019 • The Unz Review: Alternative Media Largely Excluded from the American Mainstream Media.
       There is a vast body of documented evidence to prove this, an indisputably logical case marshalled by serious writers and researchers. Lisa Pease is the latest. It is a reason why a group of 60 prominent Americans has recently called for a reopening of, not just this case, but those of JFK, MLK, and Malcom X. The blood of these men cries out for the revelation of the truth that the United States national security state and its media accomplices have fought so mightily to keep hidden for so many years.
       That they have worked so hard at this reveals how dangerous the truth about these assassinations still is to this secret government that wages propaganda war against the American people and real wars around the world. It is a government of Democrats, Republicans, and their intelligence allies working together today to confuse the American people and provoke Russia in a most dangerous game that could lead to nuclear war, a possibility that so frightened JFK and RFK after the Cuban Missile Crisis that they devoted themselves to ending the Cold War, reconciling with the Soviet Union, abolishing nuclear weapons, reining in of the power of the CIA, and withdrawing from Vietnam. That is why they were killed. The assassination of the top four leaders of the political left in that five year period – President John Kennedy in 1963, Malcolm X in 1965, and Martin Luther King, Jr. and Senator Robert Kennedy in 1968 – represented nothing less than a slow-motion coup on the political scene.
       If anyone wishes to understand what has happened to the United States since this coup, and thus to its countless victims at home and throughout the world, one must understand these assassinations and how the alleged assassins were manipulated by the coup organizers and how the public was hoodwinked in a mind-control operation on a vast scale. It is not ancient history, for the forces that killed these leaders rule the U.S. today, and their ruthlessness has subsequently informed the actions of almost all political leaders in the years since. A bullet to the head when you seriously talk about peace and justice is a not-so-gentle reminder to toe the line or else.

What Julian Assange and WikiLeaks is Really Doing: WikiLeaks Julian Assangewas designed to hurt power that hides its intentions. The more secretive or unjust an organization is, the more leaks induce fear and paranoia in its leadership and planning. WikiLeaks is the creation of some smart guys who were inspired by Timothy C. May, Eric Hughes, Murray Rothbard, and a few others. Assange describes modern governance as conspiracy. He invokes Teddy Roosevelt, who said, “Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people.” These networks – the real power behind the apparent power – are WikiLeaks’s actual targets, not the governments they may seem to be addressing. I hope you can see how brilliant the WikiLeaks strategy really is. They’re not reacting after the events, as in exposing dirty laundry. They are acting in advance, disrupting their enemy’s ability to function in the future. More than this will be required to bring our world out of its current barbaric age, but this is a fascinating and important part.

Patrick Byrne Patrick Byrne; How Tech Can Thwart the State. Overstock.com founder Patrick Byrne is a brilliant innovator and freedom advocate. He holds a PhD in philosophy from Stanford, but understands e-commerce and blockchain technology like an engineer. He also understands Austrian economics, and courageously uses his public profile to make the Hayekian case for a decentralized political, economic, and social order. This presentation is excerpted from his talk given on the Mises Auburn campus discussing the relationship between Austrian theory and the blockchain, and what it means for the eventual demise of government gatekeepers and middlemen.

The Shocking $150•trillion Reason Why
the Government Killed Rancher Lavoy Finicum
(censored~deleted) but...

Hammonds get Pardon from President Trump July 2018

There's a $150-trillion reason why Rancher Lavoy Finicum was murdered by the U.S. Government. There's also a $150-trillion-reason why they detained Rancher Cliven Bundy and tried to destroy his life and the lives of all of his fellow defendants--and a very good reason why the gov't wants them all dead if at all possible. In addition to being one of the first journalists to expose the connection between the Clinton Foundation and Uranium One in January 2016, there's a reason why the U.S. Government held Pete Santilli in jail longer than any other journalist in American history. By the end of this report, you'll have the answer why Santilli was in jail for 619 days, and you will appreciate that jail did nothing but make him more determined to expose the truth about corruption and criminality within the U.S. Government to the American people.

Jesus & Religion
The Religion of Jesus: The Big Issue part 2
• by Paul Rosenberg, FreemansPerspective • Sep 6th, 2016 •

Christianity has not been the religion of Jesus. It has been a religion about Jesus. This concept is only threatening, of course, if our allegiances are divided between Jesus and religious organizations. I am confident that Jesus would care far less about what we think about his divinity than doing the things he taught and practiced.

In fact, we have a beautiful statement of that concept in two of our gospels. Here is Luke’s version: "Why do you call me Lord, but don’t do the things I say?"

And while writing these discourses I stumbled upon another distinction: I found myself feeling a need to write “believe him” rather than “believe in him.” I quickly realized it was the same issue. Do we believe (and thus do) the things Jesus said? Or do we merely believe in Jesus… that he is “the son of God,” “born of a virgin,” or whatever? This difference is the same as “do we do what he said, or merely call him Lord?”

And according to Jesus, everything turns upon this difference.
The New Age of Intelligence (The Parasite Model). Facebook, Google, and major free services operate as parasites. Republican donors with connections to the Obama campaigns hired a company to produce psychological (“psychographic”) profiles of millions of Americans to “use personality profiling to shift America’s culture.” They took and use detailed Facebook data on 50 million people. Google happily helped the Hillary campaign do the same thing. This is the new model for politicians and corporations. This (book has the details), ends up where the Chinese are now taking it: rewarding “good” citizens and punishing “bad” citizens.
Chaos Theory; 2 Essays on Market Anarchy. This book was written to define, explain and defend anarcho-capitalism. The true definition of anarchy is the belief that a state (government) is not necessary, and that all services the state currently performs can best be provided by an anarcho-capitalist open marketplace. This book is terse, very well-written, and an excellent introduction to anarchism. Chaos Theory consists of two essays written by economist Robert Murphy, devoted to explaining how an anarcho-capitalist order CAN provide for
(a) defense and (b) law.
Liberty Classroom “If you can't explain it simply you don't understand it well enough.” Tired of losing arguments with brainwashed ignorance, when you know you're right? Want to innoculate your teenager or grandkids, against lunacy? Are you tired of the media’s propaganda and eager for the truth? There’s a myth in America that everyone is entitled to their own opinion, and all opinions carry equal weight. Wrong. What we are all entitled to is an informed opinion, based on truth. Many people who debate politics, economics, and social issues do so with little command of the facts. Instead they are armed with what they were told in public schools, and in mainstream media. Liberty Classroom ensures your mastery of the unvarnished truth so you can defend your ideas with clarity, accuracy, and rock-solid logic. The distortions and omissions of the political, media, and academic establishments have gone on for a very long time. Liberty Classroom offers a unique opportunity to learn the finer points of non-partisan knowledge and thought from scholars, teachers, writers, and thinkers committed to the truth. Read more here.

Learn case-winning lawsuit procedure--in a single weekend. Anyone can accuse anyone of anything. Justice is expensive. I have had two separate life experiences with the law in a courtroom, and I learned a lot, mostly in hindsight, and found out that ignoring it, or fighting it on your own, unprepared, is not an option.

You need real knowledge or professional help from a reliable source; and in some civil suit cases, hiring a lawyer is not an option. The American Bar Association says more than 4 out of 5 people who need a lawyer cannot afford one. Most lose needlessly! On your own, it will take hours and hours of research to find information that is helpful, real and practical. If ever you find yourself in that situation, check out this program. It is all explained in simple terms anyone can learn quickly. Get justice on your side. Control crooked lawyers and corrupt judges. Know how to do it all ... without a lawyer. There are 3 free lessons, and one paid lesson (Justice may not be free, but with this program, it doesn't have to be so damn expensive!).
