AS SUMMERTIME static starts to rear its ugly head, it becomes more and more important to run a high, efficient antenna — and an RF power amplifier at or near full legal power, when operating on 75 meters in general and checking into the Liberty Net in particular. Here are some links that can help you build a great antenna:
Don’t be fooled by ad copy: Homemade full-size wire antennas are nearly always far superior to commercial compromise types!
Now here’s a brief summary of some of the ideas brought up on the Liberty Net this week:
• Beware the oligarchs’ (and Israel’s) attempt to get a war started in Syria. They really don’t care whether or not Syria has used chemical weapons (and why is that worse than lobbing depleted uranium warheads, like the Washington regime does?); and they don’t care if a revolutionary regime there will be far more fundamentalist and radical than the Assad government. All they care about is that Syria under Assad is strong, and they want a weak, faction-ridden Syria — a Syria that can’t keep out the Mossad and the CIA and the New York banking and media mega-corporations. (1 hour 2 minutes)
• There’s a new term for the states that have reached the ominous point at which there are more people dependent on government payments than are working — they’re called “death spiral” states. (1 hour 11 minutes)
• Social networking sites like Tumblr and Facebook, despite the fact that their owners would like to censor them (and Facebook actually does so), are so large that it’s simply impossible for them to do so effectively. So they are an excellent source of information covered up by the billionaires’ media. (1 hour 39 minutes)
• According to a new poll, nearly half of the American public now believe that an armed revolution is or may be necessary in this country. (1 hour 55 minutes)
• A majority of Americans believe that Congress is corrupt and criminal — yet 95 per cent. of Congressmen are re-elected. It appears that the mentally healthy people have stopped voting. (2 hours 21 minutes)
• Why do weak-kneed resistance movements like the UK Independence Party restrict themselves to advocating “limiting” non-White immigration into Britain — when they should be advocating massive and immediate emigration? The same situation exists throughout the West. (2 hours 28 minutes)
• Given the huge amount of wealth siphoned off by the bankers for decades, and the declining genetic quality of the population, it is very, very unlikely that the current generation of young people will live anywhere near as well as their parents. (2 hours 38 minutes)
• “Feminism” was fostered by the oligarchs as a means of 1) lowering wages by almost doubling the labor force; and 2) turning White women against White men and thereby fostering a decline in the White population, which the oligarchs want to exterminate. (2 hours 40 minutes)
