Don’t Blame Obama (He Has No Power)

By Chris Campbell

1x1.trans Don’t Blame Obama (He Has No Power)

The genius H.L. Mencken put it best when he wrote that “every election is a sort of advance auction sale of stolen goods.”

We also like the one from P.J. O’Rourke, who wrote…

“Don’t vote! It just encourages the bastards.”

And we can’t forget Twain’s pithy observation…

“If voting made a difference,” he said, “they wouldn’t let us do it.”

Until now, this area of debate has been reserved only for the fringes. The question of whether or not to vote, that is. Or if voting is actually effective in changing governmental policy (the answer? No).

As you’ll see in a moment, though, this debate is slipping into the mainstream. And in a very big way.

To begin, let’s rewind six years…

1x1.trans Don’t Blame Obama (He Has No Power)“The voters who put Barack Obama in office expected some big changes,” The Boston Globe article begins.

“From the NSA’s warrantless wiretapping to Guantanamo Bay to the Patriot Act, candidate Obama was a defender of civil liberties and privacy, promising a dramatically different approach from his predecessor.

“But six years into his administration, the Obama version of national security looks almost indistinguishable from the one he inherited. Guantanamo Bay remains open. The NSA has, if anything, become more aggressive in monitoring Americans. Drone strikes have escalated. Most recently it was reported that the same president who won a Nobel Prize in part for promoting nuclear disarmament is spending up to $1 trillion modernizing and revitalizing America’s nuclear weapons.”

1x1.trans Don’t Blame Obama (He Has No Power)“It has long been the province of conspiracy theorists,” Mickey Edwards writes in a separate article in the Globe, “to claim that the real power of government is not wielded by the obvious practitioners of statecraft — presidents, members of Congress, the judiciary — but by secret or semi-secret entities, real wizards whose hidden machinations send us to war, sell us out to enemies, siphon public treasure into private hands.

“Depending on your talk show or paranoia of choice, these are the bankers, oil barons, one-worlders, war profiteers, Bilderbergers, Masons, Catholics, Jews, or Trilateralists. Our formal institutions, in this scenario, are stage sets, Potemkin villages; our officials are puppets; we are an unsuspecting audience.”

Yes, there are countless ways to say the government is corrupt.

But here’s the thing…

At their core, all these theories have a “shadow government” of sorts running things behind the scenes.

And, according to one highly regarded professor, that might not be too far from reality.

1x1.trans Don’t Blame Obama (He Has No Power)Enter Michael Glennon and his book National Security and Double Government.

“Why,” Glennon poses the question, “does national security policy remain constant even when one president is replaced by another, who as a candidate repeatedly, forcefully, and eloquently promised fundamental changes in that policy?”

To be sure, Glennon is not a name uttered in conspiracy circles.

He’s a respected professor of international law at Tuft’s Fletcher School. He served legal counsel to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. And he’s a respected academic in several Ivy-League institutions.

In his new book, says the Globe, “he catalogs the >> READ MORE <<

Why Solar Could Save the World, and Ebola Could Maim it

By Chris Campbell

1x1.trans Why Solar Could Save the World, and Ebola Could Maim it

“Here’s a quick quiz,” our tech whiz Stephen Petranek writes: “What U.S. industry has grown its installed base by more than 418% since 2010?

“What industry expanded 100% globally last year and is now employing over 2 million people? I’ll give you one guess, and here’s a hint: It’s an industry with a future as bright as its power source:

1x1.trans Why Solar Could Save the World, and Ebola Could Maim it“The answer is the solar energy industry.”

What’s fueling this sudden rise?

“Many things,” Stephen writes. “We need more energy due to population growth. And billions of people rising into the global middle class also means rising demand for energy. Also driving demand for alternative energy sources are environmental concerns over the impact of hydrocarbon fuels. Governments around the world — including here in the U.S., have provided considerable incentives for shifting toward ‘green’ energy sources.

“Solar power is the fastest-growing part of the energy mix.”

“Furthermore, solar has been following a ‘Moore’s law’ of its own. Sharply falling prices are bringing the cost of electricity derived from solar energy into parity with traditional energy sources. If the trend continues, solar will actually become a cheaper energy source, without taking into account negative external factors such as air pollution.

1x1.trans Why Solar Could Save the World, and Ebola Could Maim it

“But air pollution is a big factor,” Stephen goes on. “Solar is very clean at the point of power generation, unlike hydrocarbon-burning plants. And it’s more than just fear of carbon dioxide emissions that’s driving adoption of solar. It’s having air fit to breathe. We’ve all seen what coal-burning plants can do in places like China.

“Emissions from coal plants can kill even when the smog isn’t visible. In 2010, the World Health Organization estimated that over 1 million urban deaths were attributable to outdoor air pollution. The American Heart Association estimates that particulate air pollution causes some 60,000 deaths in the U.S. each year. Did you know a coal-fired plant dumps more radioactive material into the environment than a nuclear-powered one?

“Solar could help a great deal by replacing some of our dirtier energy sources, especially coal. But solar suffers a big disadvantage when compared with these common energy sources. A coal or gas plant can run 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. A solar plant, however, won’t produce power when the sun isn’t shining.

“Furthermore, during peak production — when the sun is shining brightest — solar might be putting out an unnecessary surplus of electricity.

“Since solar is an intermittent power source, other power sources have to be ready to pick up the slack as needed. For solar power to truly be competitive, a way to store energy is needed for those times when the sun isn’t shining and to store surplus power when it is.

“Suppose a company found a way to do that — and not only store energy from solar plants, but also create the possibility of transforming it for use as a clean transportation fuel. It would make an already disruptive energy technology even more >> READ MORE <<

Six Signs Your Government’s Too Big

By Chris Campbell

1x1.trans Six Signs Your Government’s Too Big

In today’s episode, we’re going to show you six “red flags” to look out for.

These flags will inform you — with little doubt — that your government is, in fact, too swollen.

Let’s dive right in…

No. 1: Your government is too big if government contractors get paid to hit the refresh button for months on end…

“Employees at an ObamaCare processing center in Missouri with a contract worth $1.2 billion,” one New York Post article reads, “are reportedly getting paid to do nothing but sit at their computers.”

Serco, a company owned by a British firm, was awarded over a billion dollars to handle ACA applications.

According to one whistleblower, Serco is attempting to hide the lack of actual work they’re doing. Instead, its HR department is hastily hiring employees in its centers in Missouri, Kentucky and Oklahoma.

Of course, duly compensated with each new body in a chair.

Weeks can pass, the whistleblower told St. Louis’ News 4, before employees receive even one application to process.

“They’re told to sit at their computers and hit the refresh button every 10 minutes,” said the informant, “no more than every 10 minutes.”

Sure, it’s no Snowden revelation. But, hey, it’s good to see the government still living up to its reputation.

1x1.trans Six Signs Your Government’s Too BigNo. 2: Your government is too big if colleges have “free speech areas”…

Apparently, Broward College in Florida now has “free speech areas” for talking to students about the government.

Meet Lauren Cooley.

She’s a 22-year-old journalist and field coordinator for Turning Point USA, a national non-profit promoting small government and free-market values.

After spending 90 minutes talking to students at the school and asking them “do you think big government sucks?”, she was told by a security guard that she needed to go to the “free speech area.”

When Cooley refused to show identification, she was promptly surrounded by several officers.

She asked one officer if she was allowed to talk to students.

“No, you cannot,” he replied. “You need to leave the campus now. If you do not leave you will be arrested for trespassing.”

“Broward College,” Cooley told reporters from The College Fix, “it’s a public school, I live in Broward County, it’s literally the college my tax dollars go to partially fund.

“I would speculate this happened because of heightened security for the governors debate, but that just shows the larger your government grows, the quicker your rights are violated.”

1x1.trans Six Signs Your Government’s Too BigNo. 3: Your government is too big if it can’t stop supplying radical terror groups with high-grade weaponry…

The U.S. just handed weapons to ISIS. Again.

“At least one bundle of U.S. weapons airdropped in Syria appears to have fallen into the hands of ISIS,” The Daily Beast reported yesterday, “a dangerous misfire in the American mission to speed aid to Kurdish forces making their stand in Kobani.”

How did the Beast discover this? Youtube.

You Should Give Your Book Away For Free (and Make Money Before You Write it)

By Chris Campbell

1x1.trans You Should Give Your Book Away For Free (and Make Money Before You Write it)

We’re back on the self-publishing beat today…

In today’s episode, you’re going to learn about two fantastic services you should consider if you’re self-publishing a book.

Even if you’re not writing a book, if you’re an avid reader you’ll love these websites too. They’re how you can find some of the world’s best “hidden” authors in the world — and even read their books for FREE.

One will allow you to connect with more readers than you ever thought possible — and create lasting relationships with those who love you work.

Another will allow you to get your book idea funded… even if you only have the first chapter written.

Before I show you the first service, let’s recap last Monday’s issue…

1x1.trans You Should Give Your Book Away For Free (and Make Money Before You Write it)Last Monday, we gave you our foolproof process for becoming a successful self-published author.

It’s the same process we used for our Ebola pandemic guide, which has reached over 13,000 people in only a little over a week.

If you follow it step-by-step, yes, you’ll sweat a little.

But if you follow through with these steps, your book is going to be a cut above the rest.

As we said last week, very few authors are taking their book to this level. If you do it, you’ll be a step ahead of the herd on Amazon.

Last week, we also talked about how important it is to give away a good chunk of your work for free…1x1.trans You Should Give Your Book Away For Free (and Make Money Before You Write it)

The more content you’re giving away for free, the more aware people are going to be of you and your work.

In order to sell lots of books, you must get as many eyeballs as possible. It’s a pure numbers game.

This is just one thing giving your work away for free can do.

Here are seven reasons from author Bryan Hutchinson on why you should give much of your content away for free…

  1. “Generate word of mouth and become a known author.
  1. “Generate reviews faster than waiting for people to hopefully buy it, which, of course, can take a long time if you are an unknown.
  1. “Most people love to reciprocate generosity, it’s built into our DNA!
  1. “How many people download the free copy helps you estimate what your real market reach is.
  1. “Attract readers to your website and to any other books you may have published or will publish.
  1. “Exposure, exposure, exposure….
  1. “Finally, if your book is good and resonates with the people who downloaded it, this will help generate sales after the promotion. Sales you would not have had otherwise.”

What to give away? And where?

You can give away the first chapter… a small section… or even the whole book for a limited time.

1x1.trans You Should Give Your Book Away For Free (and Make Money Before You Write it)As for where to give away your book, you should consider using one website called Story Cartel.

These Three Ebola Bombshells Change Everything

By Chris Campbell

1x1.trans These Three Ebola Bombshells Change Everything

As you probably know by now, another Texas nurse has been infected.

Her name is Amber Vinson. She helped treat Thomas Eric Duncan, the Liberian who fled to America after coming into contact with the virus.

Come to find out…

Even after coming into close contact with Duncan, the CDC told her that it was OK to fly on a commercial airplane to Cleveland.

Then when it came time for her to fly back, they gave her the thumbs-up again…

This time after she told them she had symptoms.

Yep. Contrary to what the CDC initially reported, they told her to fly after she called them to tell them she was experiencing Ebola-like symptoms.

Seriously. She was on the plane in full transmission mode.

We learned this from CBS’ News Medical Correspondent Dr. John LaPook.

According to his report, Vinson called the CDC several times before boarding a plane back to Dallas from Cleveland.

She called to tell them she was showing symptoms true to Ebola and see what steps she should take.

CDC’s response? It’s fiiine. Get on the plane!

While at first, the CDC denied it, they later came out and said it did happen.

“This nurse, Nurse Vinson,” Dr. LaPook said, “did in fact call the CDC several times before taking that flight and she said she has a temperature, a fever of 99.5, and the person at the CDC looked at a chart and because her temperature wasn’t 100.4 or higher she didn’t officially fall into the category of risk.”

Obligatory facepalm

** “Frontier Airlines is working closely with the CDC to identify and notify all passengers on the flight,” CBS News reports.

[Is that supposed to be comforting?]

“The airline also says the plane has been thoroughly cleaned and was removed from service following CDC notification early Wednesday morning.”

[You hear that big “BUT” stomping toward you?]

“However…”

[Yep. There it is…]

“… according to Flighttracker, the plane was used for five additional flights on Tuesday before it was removed from service. Those flights include a return flight to Cleveland, Cleveland to Fort Lauderdale–Hollywood International Airport (FLL), FLL to Cleveland, Cleveland to Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL), and ATL to Cleveland.”

One more time…

1x1.trans These Three Ebola Bombshells Change EverythingFrom a different angle

** Let’s back up. How do not one — but two – Dallas nurses get infected?

Maybe because they haven’t been properly trained… or maybe it’s something much more harrowing.

The former is a possibility:

National Nurses United (NNU), during a conference call with reporters this week, announced that most Dallas nurses had no clue what to do when Duncan Thomas was brought to the hospital.

And that’s not all they revealed. Far from it. See below.

Democracy: Not all its Cracked Up to Be

By Chris Campbell

1x1.trans Democracy: Not all its Cracked Up to Be

With Ebola wrapping our minds in knots, we let the protests in Hong Kong go completely unmentioned…

Unacceptable.

So what’s happening?

At its peak, as many as 200,000 Hong Kong demonstrators hit the streets.

What do they want?

“Democracy now!” they chant. “Democracy in Hong Kong!”

** “We are not seeking revolution,” 17-year-old Joshua Wong told reporters.

“We just want democracy. We hope there will be no violence. It would be unfortunate if this movement ended in bloodshed and violence.”

What many are dubbing the “Umbrella Revolution” — named after the defense used against pepper spray — has, as of this week, turned violent.

Hundreds of police officers, armed with batons, pepper spray and shields, moved in to disassemble a chunk of the barricades and tents.

In the commotion, many protesters witnessed plain-clothes police officers using excessive force against many demonstrators — some whose hands were bound behind their back.

In one instance, protesters filmed several officers as they carried one of their fellow demonstrators to a hidden street corner and beat him senseless.

Pro-democracy protests are fairly common in Hong Kong. Never have they clashed with the police like this.

But this one is unique. It’s huge. A terrifying thing for tyranny.

** Of course, nobody is surprised that the Chinese government is getting involved…

Or that they’re reacting so harshly.

There is nothing in this world China’s uber-paranoid leaders love more than total control. And nothing fears them worse than losing even a sliver of it.

It was only two weeks ago, mind you, when Chinese security officials checked 10,000 pigeon buttholes for explosives before setting them free on National Day.

That’s right. Chinese officials dug through 10,000 pigeon rectums…

In the name of security.

1x1.trans Democracy: Not all its Cracked Up to Be

Prediction: ISIS’ next ridiculous threat will now somehow involve pigeons…

So when 200,000 protesters demand democracy in China’s lucrative bridge to the capitalist world…

They freak out.

** “The Chinese government is, domestically, an enemy of freedom — this much is obvious,” opines Jebediah Cole on Liberty.me.

“But that doesn’t make every enemy of an enemy a friend.

“Recently many libertarians have written and posted online in support of the ongoing Hong Kong democracy protests.

“Perhaps it’s the obvious parallel with the unsuccessful Tiananmen Square democracy protests (which were undoubtedly a pro-liberty movement) that have brought out support for these protests.

“The Hong Kong protests have an entirely different substance though — because Hong Kong is already an incredibly free place, and has been so, without democracy, for decades.

“With the rule of law, including British individual legal protections, comparatively low taxes, a free business and trade environment and many social freedoms, Hong Kong is freer than most Western democracies.

“And isn’t that a little telling? Because it’s via democracy that socialist policies gained a real foothold in developed countries in the 20th century. Perhaps surprisingly, the anti-democratic Hong Kong has enjoyed laissez-faire laws — because these deliver the economic goods for the dictators in Beijing.

Yes. We made it in the symposium (did you doubt us?).

Apparently, simply telling them you’re with the media goes a long way.

They only started organizing this event seven days ago, the organizer said as she showed us to our seats.

This is the first time they’ve pulled an event together so quickly. Must be urgent.

Now we’re currently sitting inside the largest Ebola symposium in the world. The room is packed full of epidemiologists, virologists, professors, scientists, students, and even a few family doctors.

1x1.trans What You Need to Know: Inside the World’s Largest Ebola Symposium

If you tuned in yesterday, we reported in from a coffee shop within the Johns Hopkins Hospital campus just before we were about to make our way in.

Fast-forward an hour and we’re sitting inside the symposium with more doctors than the entire country of Liberia.

We’re serious.

In 2006, after trying to recover from a savage civil war, Liberia clocked in with a total of about 50 doctors. Yes, in the entire country.

As Martin Robbins wrote on the Vice blog yesterday, “you’d struggle to find a worse place for an outbreak to happen if you tried.”

Here’s what the world’s leaders in medicine had to say…

1x1.trans What You Need to Know: Inside the World’s Largest Ebola Symposium“Ebola is the WHO’s Sept. 11,” Dr. Michael Osterholm announced from the podium.

“It will redefine the role of the WHO from this point on.”

Dr. Osterholm is the director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota.

Dr. Osterholm. Definitely the most candid of the bunch

He’s also the author of the New York Times best-selling book Living Terrors: What America Needs to Know to Survive the Coming Bioterrorist Catastrophe.

He’s known in the medical circles as one of the biggest critics of the lackadaisical and contradictory claims put out by the CDC and WHO about the Ebola crisis.

And the picture he paints of a future Africa is dark.

1x1.trans What You Need to Know: Inside the World’s Largest Ebola SymposiumAll of Africa is brewing a perfect storm for a continent-wide Ebola pandemic….

Let’s tick off the reasons…

First, on Monday, Osterholm reported, Liberian health care workers went on strike because of lack of gloves, masks, and goggles.

A mind-blowing 80% of them are expected to work with highly infectious Ebola victims without the proper protection. We’re talking about even the bare essentials here: gloves, gowns and bleach.

“If we can get iPhones delivered across the world in a day,” he said, “why can’t we get equipment to Liberia?” Osterholm asked, chastising the world’s response to the crisis.

We live in a country where we can give $384,949 to Yale University so they can study “Sexual Conflict, Social Behavior and the Evolution of Waterfowl Genitalia.”

(This happened last year. The researchers looked at… I’m not kidding… the ‘plasticity in duck penis length’)

Yet they twiddle their thumbs for two weeks about spending a fraction of that to buy bleach and rubber gloves.

The Viral Ebook Blueprint: When Your Book Takes On a Life of its Own

By Chris Campbell

1x1.trans The Viral Ebook Blueprint: When Your Book Takes On a Life of its Own

Welcome back…

We have lots of new faces this week.

If you’re new here, I’m Chris Campbell, your managing editor.

For the past few weeks, we’ve been talking off and on about how anyone can self-publish a book and make money.

If you’re writing a book (or even if you aren’t yet) self-publishing a hit is easier than you might think.

Doing it is just a matter of figuring out what makes self-published books successful, and copying down the blueprint.

In this course, you’ll learn all about this blueprint. It’s the same blueprint you’ll find laid out in our upcoming book, Laissez Faire’s Guide to Self-Publishing.

In today’s issue, you’ll we’ll talk about three more secrets from this guide.

Make sure to stick around for the third one.

It’s all about how to make your book go viral. And how to make it unforgettable.

Speaking of going viral…

Did you download your FREE Ebola guide yet?

If no, click here for access. It’ll only be free until tomorrow.

Even if you have downloaded, I urge you to go take another look at it before you read on.

Study it. In plain view are many of our best-kept self-publishing secrets.

Can you spot them?

Just to prove to you how effective these secrets are… take a look at these numbers…

Since we released our Ebola Pandemic Survival Guide on Friday, we’ve received nearly 6,800 downloads.

Upon writing, we have 20 reviews with an average of 3.9 stars.

Our book is #1 in its own categories, as you can see below…

1x1.trans The Viral Ebook Blueprint: When Your Book Takes On a Life of its Own

Again, this is only three days.

1x1.trans The Viral Ebook Blueprint: When Your Book Takes On a Life of its OwnHow did we do it?

We followed a specific roadmap to make this book a hit.

We’ll run through part of this roadmap below.

It begins with signing your book up to Amazon’s KDF free campaign program (we showed you how to do that in last week’s episode).

The more downloads you receive while your book is free, the more visible your book becomes on Amazon.

If your book receives lots of attention, Amazon notices. And they push you up to test how well you do at the top.

It’s the same as when your local department store notices that, let’s say, sales for a certain brand of gloves is surging.

If they’re smart, they’d stick those gloves to the front and center of the store, where more people can spot them.

Sales/downloads are only one part of the story, though. There are several key factors that Amazon tracks.

Each one of these is crucial to making your book go viral on Amazon.

Though it’s a closely guarded secret, we do have a pretty good idea of what this algorithm tracks.

We know, for example, they pay close attention to sales velocity as well as sales. They take into consideration the rate of sales and the timing of them.

So if you have a huge and sudden spike in sales, Amazon will push you to the top of the bestsellers list >> READ MORE <<

Desperate times call for desperate squares to squeeze into circles…

“As the Ebola crisis continues,” MSNBC’s Krystal Ball says, “confusion and fear grows.

“So why are we still waiting on President Obama’s Surgeon General nominee to get to work?

“The answer?” Krystal says.

[Wait for it... ]

“Guns.”

Yep. In a shocking new development, guns are to blame for the confusion and fear caused by Ebola.

Of course they are.

In short, so goes the logic, the Ebola crisis is going to be much worse because Obama’s surgeon general isn’t on board.

And whose fault is that? Gun owners who aren’t hip to the general’s stance on current gun laws.

Worse, you’ll be involuntarily subjected to endure whatever vaccines… drugs… or shots they want to give you.

“Sec. 19a-131a. Declaration of public health emergency by Governor. (a) In the event of a state-wide or regional public health emergency, the Governor shall make a good faith effort to inform the legislative leaders specified in subsection (b) of this section before declaring that the emergency exists and may do any of the following: (1) Order the commissioner to implement all or a portion of the public health emergency response plan developed pursuant to section 19a-131g; (2) authorize the commissioner to isolate or quarantine persons in accordance with section 19a-131b; (3) order the commissioner to vaccinate persons in accordance with section 19a-131e; or (4) apply for and receive federal assistance.”

And if you don’t comply?

“(d) Any individual who, during the course of a public health emergency declared under this section, violates the provisions of any order issued pursuant to sections 19a-131 to 19a-131i, inclusive, or who intentionally obstructs, resists, hinders or endangers any person who is authorized to carry out, and who is engaged in an activity that carries out, any of the provisions of the order shall be fined not more than one thousand dollars or imprisoned not more than one year, or both, for each offense.”

Breaking: On the Ground in Liberia [VIDEO]

1x1.trans Breaking: On the Ground in Liberia [VIDEO]

“You can see the difference between a developing country,” Liberia’s Dr. Mohamed Sankoh told VICE from a holding center he and his team had built only days prior, “and a developed country like America.

“If you have Ebola in America, none of them died. Do you know why? It is not because the virus, per se, it is because of the way they handled the management of the disease.”

Duncan Thomas was the first and only death of Ebola in the United States. He died shortly after the filming of this video.

Back to Sankoh’s point, though, here’s some of what goes into handling a disease like Ebola…

You must, he says, “be able to calculate at least, how much fluid was lost by this patient. Able to calculate at least, how many electrolytes and what kind of electrolytes are lost, and then replace them.

“The capability [here in Liberia] is little or none at all.

“We have never seen such a thing before. Cases all over, in a rampant way. It’s difficult.

“We need helpers. We need those who have experienced such a pandemic before to come to our aid.

“I have to cope. I have to cope with the stress. I have to cope with the emotion. If not, I will be a victim of circumstances.

“If you think so much about the disease and you become frightened, what you’re supposed to do to protect yourself, you cannot do it. You will not think.

“The fear of that, when the fear consumes you, then the disease equally consumes you. So you have to be alert.

“You have to be alert at all times. No sleeping on the disease.

When asked if his staff was trained before creating the center, he said: “For this particular outbreak, of course to some extent. But the practical aspects, no, only the theoretical.

“You see, theoretical training and the practical training, they are different.

“It’s one thing in the classroom and one thing in there,” he said, pointing to the entrance of the facility.

“Inside there, what are you going to do?”
