    The media are among the “THEY” who are telling us lies, and AMERICAN FREE PRESS correspondent Pat Shannan lays it all out in no uncertain terms.

    The title says it all . . . Everything They* Ever Told Me Was a Lie: VOLUME ONE.

    Completing a work that took four years, between exposing false history for THE BARNES REVIEW and weekly investigative reporting for AFP, Shannan has scored again! In fact, the final manuscript was so big that we had to slice it in half and make it into two volumes.

    Volume One is a blockbuster, spanning the past half century and covering the unknown facts about the JFK assassination and the still-growing Apollo 11 controversy of the 1960s to 9-11 and the Obama citizenship hoaxes of current times.

    Everything They* Ever Told Me Was a Lie: VOLUME ONE
    explains from the outset exactly who “They” are (only the newest of AFP readers wouldn’t already know) and how a cooperative news media, by ignoring facts and refusing to address pertinent questions, allow outrageous lies to meld into definite, indisputable truths.

    Softcover, 280 pages



    *Of course, the “everything” part is a slight exaggeration, but not nearly as big as one might be likely to believe. And just who are “they” anyway? The answer often varies, as in “Ya’ know, they say. . .” yet nobody ever defines who “they” are; but in this report we’ll limit it to the elected politicians and bureaucrats (who are actually paid to deceive the citizenry), their parrots in the mainstream news media (yes, even the “conservatives” at the beloved Fox-TV—the likes of which have unbalanced America’s collective mind into believing that theirs is the “balanced news”) and uninformed parents and teachers, who good-heartedly perform every day out of sheer ignorance and deception.

    About 180 years ago, a French nobleman by the name of Alexis de Tocqueville came to America with the sole purpose of investigating the success of this young country and writing a book about it. He spent months traveling throughout the land, visiting with the people and the nation’s politicians in Washington, studying the government functions, seeing the farms and the fisheries,  and learning America from top to bottom and inside & out as nobody ever had.

    When he returned to France and began to write, his book became the immensely popular but misnamed Democracy in America1and from it came one of the most famous quotes of the 19th century; that being the author’s conclusion that “America is great because America is good; and when America ceases to be good, she will cease to be great.”

    Just over a century later Will Durant wrote in Caesar and Christ, “A great civilization is not conquered from without until it has destroyed itself within. The essential causes of the Roman decline lay in her people, her morals, her class struggles and failing trade, her bureaucratic despot- ism, her stifling taxes and consuming wars.”

    We would add to Mr. Durant’s insight , “. . . and constant, repeated lies to the people.”

    Tocqueville wrote of the Americans, “Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.”

    Failing to heed the warnings, America has ceased to be good.

    1 The title was deceiving because it implied that de Tocqueville was endorsing democracy when he was actually pointing out its pitfalls, as we will do in the following pages, and declaring its dangers to be as tyrannical as a rule of aristocracy. He analyzed the influence of political parties and the press on the government, the effect of democracy on the social, political and economic life of the American people; and offered some startling predictions about world politics, which history has now borne out.

    Liars are rampant in our lives, and I say that it wasn’t always that way in my life and that it all started with the destruction of lawful money. Now since most of the reading audience doesn’t have a clue about this, following a lifetime of delusion carried on by both the government schools and the news media, we shall go back to the beginning of this claim, which explains how “Big Government” became big and the root of the problem. (“Ya’ know, Vern, that’s pretty bad when a nation’s people have become so deceived that they don’t even know what hit ‘em.”)

    We all know we’ve been done in, but I am certain that almost everyone who reads this book does not know the root of how it happened—its enablers—so we’ll cover that first.


    For years we have referred to it as “hiding in plain sight.”

    Yet it was the greatest financial heist in the history of the world! How can this be? How were the American people so blinded?
    I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated governments in the world—no longer a government of free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of small groups of dominant men.
    —Woodrow Wilson, 28th U.S. president,
    regretting his decision to assist in the creation of the Federal Reserve System

    In 1975, renowned Harvard economics professor John Kenneth Galbraith wrote MONEY: Whence It Came, Where It Went. In it he uttered the statement, “The study of money, above all other fields in economics, is one in which complexity is used to disguise truth or to evade truth, not to reveal it. The process by which banks create money is so simple the mind is repelled.”

    Galbraith’s revealing statement that complexity is used by modern economics to confuse the truth about money is a fact. Simply put, bankers replaced money with credit and debt in order to profit by the indebting of others. It’s why bankers are now so rich. It is also why others are now so poor.

    Understanding money is not rocket science. Modern currencies are a fraud, a fraud that has escaped detection much as did Bernard Madoff’s ponzi-scheme. Madoff’s scheme was based on the fraud that investors’ money was, in fact, invested. The fraud of modern economics, however, is that “money” isn’t actually money—and “they” don’t want you to know it isn’t.

    It is the month of August; a resort town sits next to the shores of a lake. It is raining, and the little town looks totally deserted. It is in the toughest times since 1934,everybody is in debt, and everybody lives on credit; mostly from each other.

    Suddenly, a rich tourist comes to town. “Whooo, boy!” Everyone says to themselves when they spot his limousine. “How long can we keep this rich guy in town?”

    The limo stops, the back door opens and the big-shot enters the only hotel. He drops a 100-dollar bill on the reception counter, and asks to inspect the rooms upstairs in order to pick one he might like.

    The moment the elevator closes taking the new customer upstairs, the hotel proprietor takes the 100-dollar bill and sprints four doors down the sidewalk to pay his debt to the butcher. The butcher takes the 100-dollar bill, and runs out back to pay his debt to the pig farmer. The pig farmer takes the 100-dollar bill, and hurries to pay his debt to the supplier of his feed and fuel. The supplier of feed and fuel takes the 100-dollar bill and hurries to pay his debt to the town’s prostitute that in these hard times, gave her services on credit. The hooker runs to the hotel, and pays off her debt with the 100-dollar bill to the hotel proprietor to pay for the rooms that she rented when she brought her clients there.

    It all happened in less than 10 minutes, and the hotel proprietor promptly placed the 100-dollar bill back on the counter so that the rich tourist would not suspect anything.

    And it was just in time, too, because only a moment later, the rich tourist came down after inspecting the rooms, picked up his 100-dollar bill, remarked that he did not like any of the rooms, and left town.

    No one earned anything. However, the whole town was suddenly without debt, and was looking to the future with a lot of optimism.

    And now you have seen a quick snapshot of how the federal government (don’t blame just Obama, it’s been going on for nearly a century), via the handy Federal Reserve credit machine, operates in our society.


    A fiat money system of the sort we are now painfully watching collapse creates a false world of false feelings of well-being and elevated lifestyles.  During the expansion phase of such a system, those living under it spend or borrow more than they should, have more children than they can afford, nationally, come to believe they can afford to allow a score of millions of illegals to come here for educations, welfare payments, medical care, etc.They reject the immutable and universal economic realities and embrace what my old friend, the late Tupper Saussy, labeled “the IDEASPHERE.”

    Dave Wilber of St. Louis has spent most of his adult life as a monetary realist, and his mentor was the great Merrill Jenkins. Wilber says:
    A Federal Reserve note is a paper token that the first users get for nothing, and a United States note is a paper token that the first users get for nothing. A solution to the world’s problems cannot include paper tokens that the first users get for nothing.  We will either have a barter system or a slave system.

    There is no other option. In a barter system, you will not see paper tokens that the first users get for nothing. When producers accept paper tokens that the first users get for nothing, the ratio of production to consumption must be ruthlessly regulated lest consumption exceed production and the worthless paper become useless paper. Can there be a better way to enhance the ratio of production than to eliminate non-productive consumers such as babies, retirees, cripples and military?  You think water is fluoridated to protect your teeth and that abortion was legalized because of women’s rights and that the 110,000 Americans lost in Asia were “halting Communist expansion”? If you believe this, then I have a bridge for you!

    Now that the inevitable economic catastrophe is upon us, it would be much fun to watch the idiots in Congress who triggered this thing scramble for cover by blaming everyone else, if it were not so tragic and troubling.

    About the only folks who feel good now are the international banksters of the world who are in the process of conducting what may prove to be one of the largest raids on the real wealth of this nation—our labor and real property—ever witnessed.

    Investigative journalist, author and radio show host Pat Shannan has been in pursuit of the truth for nearly half a century. Intrigued by the deception and on-going cover-up of the JFK assassination, he began to notice a similar pattern in the 1968 murders of Martin Luther King and Robert F. Kennedy. Then he found altered and intentionally fabricated FBI official reports regarding these and other cases and began to notice the cooperative news media ignoring blatant and pertinent facts as well.

    The films of Ronald Reagan exiting the Washington Hilton clearly show Secret Service Agent Tim McCarthy being shot by someone other than John Hinckley, Jr. And what are the odds that the greatest potential beneficiary of Reagan's demise would be the close friend and business associate of John Hinckley, Sr.? Why did the wounded Reagan arrive at the hospital 15 minutes after Jim Brady, when his limo left the scene five minutes before Brady's ambulance?

    How could Arthur Bremer fire seven shots from a five-shot revolver the day he nearly killed Gov. George Wallace and three innocent bystanders in 1972? Why was Pat Tillman murdered in Afghanistan in 2004?

    Shannan has long maintained that the hidden power behind the expansion of the central government has been the unconstitutional use of legal tender that is produced at will, and herein proves his case. He also shows that government plots survive because of little or no investigation, and only through the aid of a cooperative news media can such ridiculous conspiracy theories as the 9-11 official story not only survive but thrive.
