Judge Napolitano: Government should fear us (When we fear govt., there is tyranny; when govt. fears us, there is freedom.")

Jez has just posted a great short clip of one of Judge Napolitano's rants (good rants). 

And here's the very last one, at the very end of the last installment of his "Freedom Watch" commentary show.  As Jez says (Jez, if you ever write a column or do an online commentary, call it "Jez Says") he was fired from Fox.  Well, I'm not surprised.  What surprises me is that he was ever allowed on not just Fox, but ANY network.  The man is clear, shoots straight, doesn't pull any punches:

From Economic Policy Journal:

Judge Napolitano in his final broadcast on Freedom Watch is an inspiration to all of us who desire freedom.

Watch this and you will know why the establishment news network FOX feared him.

Interesting, Wendy.  There are also many accounts saying that Lincoln's assassination was due to his plan to implement debt-free Greenbacks.



Lincoln was quoted to say: "The people can and will be furnished with a currency as safe as their own Government. Money will cease to be master and become the servant of humanity. Democracy will rise superior to the money power." Was this the covering of "the blot in our constitutions" referred to by Jefferson?
Did Lincoln follow Jefferson's advice by taking the
"ISSUING POWER...FROM THE BANKS AND RESTOR(ing) IT TO THE GOVERNMENT TO WHOM IT PROPERLY BELONGS"? Lincoln had to wrest control from the Money Powers only 30 years after Jackson, by getting Congress to issue "Greenbacks" to finance the Civil War. This is what he said to Congress afterwards: "We have given the People of the Republic the greatest blessing they have ever had, their own currency to pay their own debts."

Abraham Lincoln

However, Lincoln did not underestimate the artful cunning of the money powers. He, too, feared for the future of our country. He, too, was aware of the designs of artful and cunning men to CONTROL THE GOVERNMENT through the money power. "Yes; we may all congratulate ourselves that this cruel war is nearing its close. It has cost a vast amount of treasure and blood. The best blood of the flower of American youth has been freely offered upon our country's altar that the Nation might live. It has been, indeed a trying hour for the Republic; but I see in the future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country.
As a result of the war, corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed.
I feel at this moment more anxiety for the safety of my country than ever before, even in the midst of the war."


In 1865, during the time Lincoln was attempting (and thereafter succeeded) in creating a debt-free currency for the People; this editorial was printed in the London Times.
"If this mischievous financial policy [of creating a debt-free currency], which has its origin in the American Republic, shall become permanent, then that government will furnish its own money without cost! It will pay off its debts and be without debt.
It will have all the money necessary to carry on its commerce. It will become prosperous without precedent in the history of the world. The brains and the wealth of all countries will go to America. That government must be destroyed or it will destroy every monarchy on the globe!"
Note the words, "That government must be destroyed..."
Was this a declaration of war against America by the bankers?
Who won this war?
Is America "...prosperous without precedent in the history of the world."?
Was that John Wilkes Booth a banker's agent? And, like John F. Kennedy after him, was Lincoln assassinated for trying to rout out the "Den of Vipers and thieves" that Andrew Jackson referred to? The English money lenders have co-operated with the money lenders of our country and in 1862 an agent, quietly and under a confidential seal, distributed among the aristocrats and the wealthy class a circular. It was called the Hazard Circular and related to the Civil War. It read: "Slavery is likely to be abolished by the war power and all chattel slavery abolished. This I and my European friends are in favor of, for slavery is but the owning of labor and carries with it the care of the laborers, while the European plan, led on by England, is that capital shall control labor by controlling wages. The great debt that the capitalists will see to it is made out of the war, must be used as a means to control the volume of money. To accomplish this the bonds must be used as a banking basis. We are now waiting for the Secretary of the Treasury to make this recommendation to Congress. IT WILL NOT DO TO ALLOW THE GREENBACK, as it is called, TO CIRCULATE AS MONEY any length of time, as WE CAN NOT CONTROL THAT. But we can control the bonds and through them the bank issues."

Hazard Circular of 1862

Was this "GREENBACK" what Lincoln was referring to when he called it "...the greatest blessing they (the People of the Republic) have ever had, their own currency to pay their own debts."?
Was it the same thing as the "Colonial Script" that Benjamin Franklin referred to? After the assassination of Lincoln, Bismarck said: "The death of Lincoln was a disaster for Christendom.
There was no man in the United States great enough to wear his boots and the bankers went anew to grab the riches. I fear that foreign bankers with their craftiness and tortuous tricks will entirely control the exuberant riches of America and use it to systematically corrupt modern civilization."

Somwhere I read that a hallmark of maturity is to hold ambivalence (in the sense of the co-existence of opposites, contradictions) in the mind (and I'd say heart) at the same time.  The picture we got of Lincoln in school was one of an almost faultless and elevated being (except if you were raised in the South).  Napolitano's view, although he sounds more New-York-Metropolitan than Southern, is that Lincoln was a tyrant who violated the Constitution by, among other things, preventing the Confederate States from seceding, as they had the right to do.  And yet... how would history have played out if they had succeeded? 

So was he a good guy or a bad guy? Come on, now children, he's got to be one or the other; can't be both or neither.  ;-)

  Lincoln was killed for his efforts to establish interest free loans(to rebuild after the war), and a debt free currency. You can imagine the money involved (rebuilding a country after a war), that is part of why we start them in the first place !

I thought this post merited a fresh look.  It's been 2 years since Judge Napolitano's prophetic rant and so much of what he said still has relevance today. 

Is the judge a gifted visionary or do all of us possess this power once we recognize that the government blueprint stays the same?

IMO, Barrack Obama is giving us a gift in some ways.  By embracing and enhancing the policies set by the Bush administration, he has lifted the veil that once separated the two political parties and exposed them to be functioning as one.

"What if we could do something about this?" says Napolitano.  I believe the first step in changing the game is being aware that it's being played.  This is a "wake-up" video that should be shared with anyone who still clings to the 2-party political system, who argues that "liberals are ruining this country" or that  "conservatives are for smaller government", and everything will be fine once my candidate wins.
