  • What is the ground truth about Phil Godlewski?

    04/17/2024 12:52:32 PM PDT · by seanmerc · 24 replies
    I'm hoping other Freepers can help. Some people I know and love have fallen under the influence of a guy named Phil Godlewski. They believe pretty much everything he says. They talk a lot about NESARA, GESARA, the fiat dollar, etc. Apparently Phil is advising people to take their money out of the bank and invest it in precious metal IRAs. He hawks some of these IRAs himself, so he has a financial self interest in telling people to do so. There are lots of people listening to him and falling under his sway. Something doesn't sit right with me...

    Sorry for another post but I'm praying that Tehran has made its point and that is it for now. They have bombarded Israel but have failed to really hurt or harm them. The BBC even show bars are open in Jerusalem. Do not be alarmed. Do not panic on here. I'm hoping that this does not escalate despite the unprecedented nature of the attack. How do Freepers see this playing out?

    So our FRiend Mark Levin is in Israel as its being bombarded with drones and missiles by Iran. (Please Pray for Peace)Kudos to him for being there as some of us have in the past accused him of being a chickenhawk. I'm looking forward to his reports actually if he does any. Life goes on there. I just saw on the BBC bars etc. are open. But I was wondering what Freepers thought of the dual loyalty question ? Mark could become an Israeli citizen if he so wanted and younger Jewish people often volunteer and fight in their military...
  • Being tailgated by a cop for going the speed limit

    One of my walking trails is right by the police station in Brookfield, CT. The parking lot for the police station abuts the parking lot for the walking trail (by the Still River which often floods into the trail). Once in a while after a walk, I get in my car and leave the walking trail to head home and immediately a police vehicle, evidently going on shift, leaves their own parking lot and slides in behind me. What to do in this situation? The roads leading back home are in either 25mph or 30mph speed zones. Ridiculously low speed...

    The Tyranny of Good Intentions In AD 2000 Paul Craig Roberts and Lawrence M.

Stratton renew their valiant campaign to reclaim that which is rightly ours–liberty protected by the rule of law. They show how crusading legislators and unfair prosecutors are remaking American law into a weapon wielded...

    Some in my family are "normies" who just don't have the energy to care about what they call "politics". They believe the government is corrupt but think there's nothing we can do - no good options - so they just want to ignore it and "remain sane". Basically they are black-pilled, and they say most people are the same way. How do we reach these people? This is what I'd like to say to them, if there was a way to get them to listen. Can somebody help me out here? “Freedom is never more than one generation away from...

    An elderly, single friend of mine had to quickly downsize due to some health issues and contracted with an estate liquidator, with my help. The liquidator was listed as a preferred servicer in some trusted real estate literature, so we thought it would be safe. It was an off-site sale since his home needed to be empty for listing (long story) and the liquidator said it would be 30 - 45 days for settlement of the sale. Contracted movers were very friendly, local, and vouched for the estate liquidator. More than six months later and dozens of calls, and the...

    Beezwax Records was established in 1997 as a sole proprietorship dedicated to the recording and distribution of brass, jazz, and blues music. Their home base is Elkhart, Indiana, where more brass instruments have been manufactured than anywhere else in the world. When the first Beezwax Record came out on October 31, 1997, it was in CD form. It was also date stamped, serialized, embossed, personalized, and registered into a database as a way to honor the passion that exists between artist and audience. The same holds true for the tens of thousands of CDs that were shipped since that day....

    Fifty years ago tonight after a nine-month gestation I was decanted from my mother's womb. I very nearly didn't survive. When I came out I wasn't breathing or moving at all. It was twelve minutes before inhalation was finally induced. Some have wondered if I've been brain damaged because of that. I don't know. But here I am fifty years later, feeling better than when I turned thirty. God has brought me far, past a lot of dark times and pain. But I'm in a place where I'm truly thankful and looking forward to where the next fifty years take...
