The Los Angeles Times says yes, and low-fat won—which will make some big advertisers happy. Unfortunately, the Times made a hash of the actual study.
Here’s the headline: “For fat loss, low-fat diets beat low-carb diets handily, new research finds.” Unfortunately not a word of this is true. The article, which was published in the science section, should instead be under fiction.
Let’s look more closely at the study, which was conducted by the National Institutes of Health. The researchers monitored two groups (one on a low-carb diet, one on a low-fat diet) under close clinical supervision for two weeks. This made it possible to know exactly what they ate. Both groups lost weight—and the low-carb group lost a pound more than the low-fat group.
What did the researchers do then? They decided to employ a much-abused technique, computer modeling, to estimate what would have happened if the experiment had continued for six months. They somehow concluded that the low-fat group, who lost less weight in the actual experiment, would have lost 6.5 pounds more body fat than the low-carb group. These rather bizarre (and openly manipulated) results led the study authors to conclude, “We can definitively reject the claim that carbohydrate restriction is required for body-fat loss.”
Note their statement: carbohydrate restriction is not required for weight loss. This is hardly news, and certainly doesn’t validate low-fat specifically over low-carb as a means of losing weight. Many diets can help people lose body fat, including extreme calorie restriction. But they made no mention of looking at which diets normalize insulin and blood sugar levels more quickly, lose body fat without the cravings associated with other approaches, or help people keep the weight off in the long-term—all of which lower-carb approaches do more effectively than other diets.
Moreover we have limited information about what the subjects actually ate. Somehow we doubt that the low-carb or low-fat meals they were given were comprised of the foods our integrative doctors or the most up-to-date nutritionists would advise.
The lack of any reference to “good” fats versus “bad” fats is a tip-off. All fats are far from the same. We need the good fats not only to thrive, but to burn off the bad fats. Today we know that even the fat deposits inside the body differ. Dr. David William’s last newsletter (Alternatives, August 2015) has a fascinating article about why we need more brown fat in order to control our white fat.
Even government bureaucrats are beginning to see that fat as a general category and cholesterol are not the problem. The Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee recently admitted that “cholesterol is [no longer] considered a nutrient of concern for overconsumption.” And, although the agency’s methods are deeply flawed, the FDA is looking into giving consumers more information about the sugar content of food. This is because Americans eat not only too much sugar and other sweeteners, but also high-glycemic carbohydrates that resemble sugar.
Our concern with the mainstream media is, as always, their desperate kowtowing to Big Food and Big Pharma—their big advertisers. Was this LA Times article inspired by the need to keep happy advertisers like Coke, a company whose attempts to muddy the scientific record we discussed recently? Or did the reporter simply not look at the study? We don’t know.
Has Science Just Settled the “Low-Fat vs. Low-Carb” Debate for Weight Loss?

Anyone with a brain knows carbs are the problem! If you lose the carbs in your diet, you lose weight!
Not true. A lot of people these days are having a lot of trouble losing weight no matter what they do, because of the crap that the food industry hides in our food supply. Things that are meant to make us fat, unhealthy and desperate. They have made us the perfect consumers of the corporate food and drug industries. Addicted to the additives designed to keep them coming back for more and constantly being treated for made up illnesses that they will never get rid of because of the additives they are addicted to. If you can exercise at a level that could give you a heart attack and don’t eat enough to keep an anorexic going and still can shift any weight, there is something majorly wrong with this picture.
It’s lifestyle too and dead end jobs make it even worse.
I agree with Nerdworld Problems. It is just not that simple. Just like there are good fats and bad fats, there are good carbs and bad carbs. I just recently lowered the protein content and raised the carb content of my diet in recent months because I have been diagnosed with histaminosis. I have significant gene defects that cause me to not be able to break down the histamine content in foods, and part of the dietary approach to controlling this condition is to lower the protein content of the diet because high protein foods contain larger amounts of the amino acid histadine that gets converted to histamine, which I cannot properly break down. The rest of the diet approach is too complicated to go into here but includes avoiding all fermented foods (very high in histamine) and foods naturally high in histamine, and eating food extremely fresh.
None the less, I have not gained weight and have actually lost more weight to my distress. As a result I have increased the fat content of my diet along with my carbohydrate intake, in the hopes of gaining back some of my lost weight. Needless to say I am not eating any refined carbs, nor wheat or gluten, but plenty of veggies but also more quinoa and buckwheat, and homemade quinoa/buckwheat zucchini muffins and the like. I do use extra eggs in the muffins though it does not amount to a lot of extra protein per muffin.
As always, the best diet for any individual is one that is based on whole foods, but varies according to individual biochemistry. Sadly, the concept of biochemical individuality has yet to penetrate cookie-cutter mainstream medicine, and even many alternative practitioners don’t get it either. There are the low carb only proponents, the low fat only proponents, the vegan groups, the paleo groups, etc.
Sometimes those of us in the alternative medicine community need to get our act together too.
I don’t buy the good fats/bad fats, just like I don’t buy the good carbs/bad carbs. But I don’t have a health condition and you do, so you should understand the science and do what works for you. BTW, a low carb diet is not necessarily a high protein diet either.
Agreed that a low carb diet does not necessarily have to translate into a high protein diet. But I do think that there are bad fats, one of which would definitely be manufactured trans fats. These, to me, are really bad. Maybe we should be talking about essential vs non essential fats as opposed to good fats and bad fats. I also think the type of rancid fats (as well as trans fats) found in a lot of commercial baked products can indeed be considered “bad fats”. Fats refined by by solvents and chemicals would also be categorized under “Bad fats” in my view as well. This might be a discussion for another time.
Quite true, but…which carbs are we talking about? Green vegetables have carbs (and important vitamins and minerals you can’t get from animal protein and natural saturated fat sources). Put nearly anyone on a diet high in natural fat sources and animal protein (meat, fish, eggs, nuts), but restrict all carbohydrate sources to organic green vegetables (a little fruit, perhaps), and they will indeed lose excess pounds.
Linda N, commenting here, cites a specific (I think unusual) genetic/metabolic problem as a reason not to eat a high protein diet. Not the case for the general population, fortunately.
Nerdworld says carbs are not the problem (only partly true) but that junk food is. Well, THAT is certainly true.
The real problem is an upside down food pyramid which includes grains (and legumes) as a staple–just what Big Food and Big Agri would love to have us believe. Native Americans and various Pacific islanders, various hunter-gatherer types the world over, lived on a diet high in natural fat, medium-high protein, and limited natural carbs, and they didn’t get “metabolic syndrome,” insulin insensitivity, or other “modern” diseases.
Agrarian grain- and legume-based cultures (dating back only a few thousand years, but not pre-History) did have some occasional weight problems, but were eating far more natural grains (replanted grasses, rice, and maize). What we have now are new strains of hybridized high-gluten wheat, GMO corn and soybeans–traditionally unfermented soy was NOT a primary Asian food source–crops which could not survive (or even be found) in the wild. Most of these strains as we now grow them didn’t exist 50 years ago, and the human body has not adapted to the digestion and utilization of them.
When talking about carbohydrates it’s vital to make the distinction between the produce aisle and the bread aisle. Just as it’s important with protein to distinguish between grass-fed meat and poultry, and bologna and hot dogs. Or with fats, natural butter, lard, and coconut oil, vs. margarine, Crisco, canola and GMO corn oil.
The easiest way to determine what foods are good for the human body is go to a supermarket. Compare the people you see to what they have in their shopping carts. If you can’t rather quickly figure it out from there, read some lame-brained article citing the latest industry-funded meta-studies. Or worse, a two-week study on the relative dietary effects of one macro-nutrient over another. Like, huh? Two weeks?
Okay, here’s two-week study: Take two groups of obese people of various ages. Put one on an all-you-can-eat diet of anything they want from the frozen breakfast, lunch, and dinner aisle, and from the bakery aisle (what they essentially live on anyway). Put the other on an all-you-can-eat diet of fresh ground meat, cage-free eggs, green vegetables, and all the butter or lard they like (no, they won’t die in only two weeks). Police them so no one cheats, weigh them naked after 14 days. Hell, check their blood pressure and glucose levels while you’re at it.
As a follow-up study, reverse the groups and run the same test. I can tell you the results without getting up from my keyboard.
Carbs are necessary nutrients! They provide energy for the body and metabolism of fats, essential fiber, vitamins and minerals. The human body cannot function properly without them. BAD Carbs are the problem …. processed foods, white flour products, junk/sweet foods, etc. If you eat a clean, mostly organic diet, stay away from GMOs, food additives, and all the other bad stuff (become a critical label reader), and be mindful of food intake vs. caloric expenditure, you will have built the foundation for losing weight almost effortlessly.
I KNOW ALL THAT! I WAS TALKING ABOUT BAD CARBS, MORONS!
THERE’S NO NEED TO GET NASTY …. not everyone knows that information and I was trying to educate. Chill out – understanding and kindness will get you more respect.
Everyone is different and, no, people don’t need a lot of carbs. You don’t either. My flour these days is coconut or almond flour. Minimal starches or sugars for me. I don’t have a problem with you eating what works for you, but you need to back off telling people they need carbs, because they don’t.
I never said people need a “lot of carbs”; but they are a necessary macronutrient (vegetables are carbs too). If you don’t get enough carbs in your diet, your body will go into a ketogenic state which is okay temporarily to lose weight, etc. , but not healthy and sustainable long-term IMO. I use coconut flour as well, and keep my starchy carb intake to a minimum.
I eliminated ALL animal products and lost nearly 40 pounds in three months, I started at a weight of 188 and now weigh 148…..I didn’t even do it to lose weight, it just came off.
The food industry CEO’s are worst than drug dealers and that’s no lie since they must make profit as well as focus on his golden parachute.
Not only that they bribe our lawmakers at every turn to insure they keep the gravy train rolling on schedule.
I can guarantee you this is happening!
In the trucking industry the lawmakers suggested weight limits on drivers and almost immediately one of the mega chains built gyms then turned right around and jacked up the carbs etc right after that so they could turn a huge profit from the gyms.
Another tried it but shutdown the gyms because they expected immediate profit.
This country has been flushed down the toilet and it’s so sad to see America going down so fast till it gives me cry at times because everyone else has been fooled into believing that their are only two doors instead of three.
Our hidden rulers, who are the secret owners of the Fed, are
the European Black Nobility. They control us through their army of
Masonic, Zionist and Jesuit agents. They are conducting a handicapping
campaign through deliberately placing poisons in our air, water, food and
medicine. Their aim is to control and enslave the world forever.
They are also adamant about preventing us from receiving and absorbing
nutrients from our food and supplements – that detoxify these poisons they give us
These selfish and callous criminals don’t want us to find out about and use fats in our diet because fats greatly help the absorption of nutrients into our bodies.
They are conducting a dis-information campaign to vilify beneficial fats.
The same goes for another fat called cholesterol and whole unprocessed salt.
Someday the public is going to catch on that nearly everything coming out of
the establishment is the opposite of the truth and that the establishment,
controlled by the criminal Black Nobility, is our mortal enemy and not the safe
haven and savior that most toxically injured sheeple believe in and desperately
count on. It’s all a deadly colossal hoax.
This is a bit of a long read, but, a realistic, viable solution for governmental abuse of power. If you can read it all then you can reasonably implement its solution!
The USA founding fathers knew that Power Corrupts and they warned of the dangers of centralizing power. They setup the best checks on government power they could at the time. Yet, wasn’t it supposed to keep government from wronging the people they’re supposed to serve? So, did it work? Is this government’s power held in check? Or does it continually wrong “We the People”? Has “abuse of power” and “wrong doing” by government gotten out of control? LOL!
Can you understand that most government atrocities throughout history would never have gotten off the ground had there been, at the time, a mechanism for the People to Check and Balance government through their Direct Participation in government?
The problem with governmental abuse of power is that it always serves its Own INTEREST or SPECIAL INTEREST to the detriment of the People’s and YOUR best interest. Governmental wrong doing will always be the inevitable result of unchecked power!
Abuse of power and wrong doing by government can and will be overturned and held in Check by the People when the political mechanism that puts them back into Direct Control of government is adopted.
The political mechanism that will put the control of government back into the hands of the People exists! There’s a political movement with said mechanism at its core. The core principle is that of true Checks and Balances on government power. – A “People’s Branch” of government will allow the People to exercise DIRECT oversight of government. The People will literally govern the government! Ultimately Checking and Balancing governmental power will bring those responsible for governmental power abuse and wrongs to justice!
The Actionable, Implementable Solution is HERE: www(dot)ThePeoplesBranch(dot)org.
Who and what political movement reintroduced (After the Founding Fathers), into the public awareness, the concept of increasing Checks and Balances as a solution for controlling government wrong doing? They didn’t – We did! – www(dot)ThePeoplesBranch(dot)org.
There is a way to make government Truly Transparent and Accountable/Directly Responsible to the People: www(dot)ThePeoplesBranch(dot)org
The People/You do not have to let the government work against Them/You! A People’s Branch will see that abuse of power and authority is punished: www(dot)ThePeoplesBranch(dot)org
Can You Think for Yourself? Think of what a People’s Branch could mean for You and/or Your Loved Ones’ Finances, Health, Rights, Freedoms, Security and Justice etc. Find out why a People’s Branch would be good for Everyone/You and Your Loved Ones! Find out why a People’s Branch will result in a better future for Your Children! You don’t have to take our word for it. A Reasonable, Responsible and Conscientious Person would find out if it truly had a chance to help them. They would talk to family and friends and find out how they feel about a People’s Branch and why?
Reasonable, Responsible, and Conscientious People need to know that they should act NOW before things get worse and their numbers fall too low…
Yet, realize that taking back control of government may not be easy. Always remember that the Reasonable, Responsible and Conscientious People are opposed in this epic struggle for Direct Participation in their government by SPECIAL INTEREST and those that serve them. – Namely their henchman – the GATEKEEPERS.
Amazingly, these GATEKEEPERS are most often our own – leaders, organizations, political parties, politicians, elected officials, bureaucrats, public servants, print and broadcast news organizations, the media, radio/TV talk show hosts, authors, advocates, pundits, alliances, federations, websites and so called political action sites etc., etc.
They’re constantly among us – even out front. Don’t You get it? – To do their job for their masters, SPECIAL INTEREST, they must have positions as GATEKEEPERS. SPECIAL INTEREST knows that keeping the People as a whole under control requires a system of GATEKEEPERS. Whether or not the GATEKEEPERS are unwitting dupes or dumbed down or just compartmentalized cronies, most end up serving SPECIAL INTEREST over those they are supposed to serve – Your and the People’s best interest!
Checks and Balances!
Who and what political movement reintroduced, into the public awareness, the concept of increasing Checks and Balances as a solution for controlling government wrong doing? They didn’t – We did! – www(dot)ThePeoplesBranch(dot)org.
Many GATEKEEPERS use the words Checks and Balances every day. Yet, why don’t they want You to know about the ultimate mechanism for implementing them. www(dot)ThePeoplesBranch(dot)org.
You may wonder if they even know about us. Yes, they know about us but refuse to acknowledge our efforts. They have even started to manipulate our words and blocking our message that the Ultimate Checks and Balances on government can and will come from the People’s Direct Participation in government. They don’t want this political movement challenging their power. Why do you think GATEKEEPERS give every political genre of any political persuasion a venue and forum? Yet, most GATEKEEPERS will never openly take up discussing the remote possibility of a People’s Branch of government? WHY?
Isn’t it because they know that anything other than the People Participating Directly in government offers little or no real resistance to the corruption of the power structure? They realize that the People Participating Directly in government, a People’s Branch, changes everything! They know that, with a People’s Branch, the People will no longer allow government to serve SPECIAL INTEREST over Their/Your/the People’s best interest!
Yet, the system is designed to allow the People a reactive mode only. The People are only offered pretend paths for changing government’s wrong doings (i.e. voting to elect officeholders, organizing, campaigning (for so-called good people), running for office (by so-called good people), public protests, marches, demonstrations, rallies, sit-ins, calling and/or writing your elected officials etc.) At best the pretend methods only slow government wrong doing temporarily. GATEKEEPERS are paid to direct the People/You into these pretend paths which will only burn out good and well-meaning People by burning up and wasting their time, energy, money and/or resources with little or no positive and/or lasting results. They’re paid by their masters, the real power behind government i.e. SPECIAL INTEREST, to keep the People/You from waking up to these truths…
If the People/You don’t wake up then they will continue by default to control the closed system. They know that they win and You lose as long as they can direct You into the pretend paths that are designed to keep out any DIRECT Checks and Balances from the outside – We the People! Think about it! Why should it have taken women sixty years to get the right to vote? Why should it have taken so many years for blacks to get the right to vote?
Isn’t it obvious, GATEKEEPERS push their pretend methods for improving and/or stopping government wrong doing because their pretend methods are designed to fail You and keep SPECIAL INTEREST in control? It’s the job of GATEKEEPERS to push their pretend methods because they are proven to keep the power in the hands of SPECIAL INTEREST. Yet, while the People are directed down their pretend paths to change and improvement, SPECIAL INTEREST continues their own direct access and participation with Your elected officials for the purpose of seeing to it that THEIR best interest gets served!
Don’t you realize that if a People’s Branch of government had existed in the past then the People would have made sure that most of the bad things of those times would’ve been avoided? Yet, it’s still not too late. We must now focus on the present and prepare for the future. Remember, if you want things to be better for Yourself and Your Loved Ones, now and in the future, then You’ll join us. Together we’ll Check and Balance government and make sure that government serves OUR/YOUR/the People’s best interest!
In the meantime most GATEKEEPERS will continue to push their PSYOP of getting You to believe that their pretend methods are new and they’ll work for You this time? It’s a sophisticated PSYOP. We know their PSYOP has worked in the past – maybe even on You. Many have fallen for it. Many still believe that these same old approaches will work for them. Yet, their pretend methods for improvement are not new and they’ll never work to insure that government serves OUR/YOUR/the People’s best interest.
REMEMBER, most GATEKEEPERS aren’t willing to help you see the best and only long term solution. i.e. The Best Long Term Solution is to cut through the political red tape and defeat the political trap masters at their own game! Isn’t it obvious why they act so much like Controlled Opposition? They are Controlled Opposition! If you study what many of these people actually say and how they say it, instead of only agreeing with what you think they are saying, then you too may see how controlled opposition really works. Yes they talk a good game. But they continue to direct your attention away from the obvious solution – YOU! You are the real solution! Once you make up your mind to have a Direct Participation in government on the things that affect You and Your loved ones then You’ll join us!
Remember, most GATEKEEPERS continuously choose to serve their followers with only talk and do nothing of consequence for them. Most GATEKEEPERS mission is to program you to also only talk and do nothing of consequence for yourself! Talk is cheap. Their rhetoric is ultimately Controlled Opposition simply because they never engage a viable long term solution. Yet, we do and we have! Here: www(dot)ThePeoplesBranch(dot)org
So, the question is – WILL IT WORK ON YOU NOW? Now that You can see their game and You see a real viable solution for Yourself and Your loved ones – a People’s Branch! Only YOUR Direct Participation in government can insure that YOUR best interest is served! Can’t you see this?
It is paramount that You Participate Directly in government where You can pass or fail Your elected officials vote on matters that affect You.
Isn’t it foolish to let others, especially GATEKEEPERS – politicians, elected officials, public servants, bureaucrats and media mouthpieces, etc., continuously undermine Your best interest? Wouldn’t it be prudent to have a Direct say in the things that affect You and Your Loved Ones? Many Reasonable, Responsible and Conscientious people are now coming to realize that they need a mechanism whereby they can Participate Directly in government in order to help safeguard their own best interest!
What could this mechanism be?
The answer is a People’s Branch of government!
The process to get a People’s Branch of government starts with the petition!
Why a Petition? Because it’s time tested and a Constitution guaranteed method whereby People/Citizens can take action and change the governing and political process! People are now beginning to see how the Petition can be used to help protect their rights and freedoms. (Therefore, none should forget or forgive any GATEKEEPERS that make fun of or demonize the Petition and its power and strength for good in the hands of good people!)
We advocate only patronizing the good GATEKEEPERS. i.e. ONLY The ones that are working to help You Safeguard You and Your Loved Ones own best interest. Only they are truly worthy of Your attention, admiration, alliance, loyalty, and support! To find out if the ones You follow are truly worthy simply ask them – if they are interested in promoting the best way (Citizens Participating Directly in government as an incorruptible Checks and Balances!) for everyone to help safeguard their own best interest!
The GATEKEEPERS that genuinely care about the People’s/Your rights and freedoms will show that they have faith in the People’s judgment as a whole! Many GATEKEEPERS demean the People for trying to exercise their best judgment when they’re forced into having to choose between two evils! i.e. They demean the public and say it’s the public’s fault for electing a corrupt politician! Is that really fair? No, it’s never really the People’s fault when some slick politician fools their constituents and gets elected – then double-crosses them! Wouldn’t the answer be to institute a foolproof mechanism to Check and Balance the double-crossers? A People’s Branch of government!
The GATEKEEPERS that genuinely care about their follower’s best interest will have no problem in helping to get the word out about this powerful solution i.e. our Petition for a People’s Branch of government! With our petition we create a way to set-up a mechanism for corruption-proof Checks and Balances on government. If you’re not hearing about this movement from the GATEKEEPER you’re following then you’ll know they’re probably a Controlled Opposition GATEKEEPER SHILL.
An ACTIONABLE Long Term SOLUTION exists HERE: www(dot)ThePeoplesBranch(dot)org
People are coming to understand that not unlike the original need for a Constitution and Bill of Rights, the true strength of a People’s Branch of government is that it will help them protect themselves from the tyranny of government and SPECIAL INTEREST. They are coming to realize that their own best interest and the best interest of the vast majority of the people are one and the same.
Divide and conquer has long been used by SPECIAL INTEREST to fool the People into believing it’s only their peers – others like themselves that are their real enemy. They don’t want YOU to know it’s really them, SPECIAL INTEREST, that’s YOUR real problem – literally. They do this simply by keeping the People’s/Your attention focused on what they say is the problem and THEIR solution.
Ever heard of Problem, Reaction, Solution? Don’t you get it? Look at what others say – in the many forums (here and/or elsewhere)… Can’t you see it? Most have their attention subverted! Look at what they’re focusing on! Some, many or all may simply be some form of Troll or dis-information pusher. Even if some are well-meaning they mostly affect You into diverting Your attention away from the systems control methods. Many do these things in hopes of stopping the People/You from seeing the Real Actionable Solution of a People’s Branch!
Yet, people are coming to realize that SPECIAL INTEREST and their GATEKEEPERS are benefiting from Their Own Form of Direct Participation (i.e. influence/manipulation) in government at the expense and detriment of the People’s/Your Own Best Interest. Therefore, until the People/You wake up and adopt this, People’s Branch of government, mechanism for Direct Participation in government, then the People’s/Your own best interest will only continue to suffer.
It is exactly because SPECIAL INTEREST will always continue to trample the People’s/Your best interest that from time to time Reasonable, Responsible and Conscientious people have to resort to revolution – violent or otherwise!
ABOVE EVERYTHING THE PROPAGANDISTS THROW AT YOU – REMEMBER THIS: A People’s Branch of government can and will Stop/Reform/Amend/Reverse and Heal the power structure and justice system. A People’s Branch will see that those responsible for governmental wrongs are justly punished!
Wake up or die asleep it’s up to you! Many ills of every kind, Autism, Cancers, Diabetes etc., etc., are now rampant and on the rise. How could these have gotten to this point without the governments complicity? Behind the People’s/Your back, without their/your awareness and/or consent, the government (local, state and national) is allowing the People/You and Your Loved Ones to be harmed/poisoned in multifaceted ways. Can you say TPP, GMO, Vaccines, Fluoride etc., etc. Reasonable, Responsible and Conscientious People are choosing to wake up! You too can Wake-Up to the only non-violent way to take your government away from SPECIAL INTEREST.
Only when citizens have a direct participation in their government concerning matters that affect them will their and their loved ones’ issues (Freedoms, Rights, Security, Financial, Health, Political and Justice etc.) have a true chance to be properly addressed!
Every Reasonable, Responsible and Conscientious person should be asking themselves WHY DO LEADERS OF BOTH MAJOR PARTIES HATE THE IDEA OF A PEOPLES BRANCH?
Those that truly seek fair and equitable solutions can find them at The People’s Branch. Implementing a People’s Branch in your local area is the key you have been waiting for….
Ultimately a People’s Branch of government will hold accountable those behind government’s multifaceted injustices and wrong doings – namely, the governmental authorities doing SPECIAL INTEREST bidding!
Remember, persons (governmental etc.,) acting against the best interest of the People should be forewarned that, at a future date, their actions may be deemed unlawful and therefore punishable. They should be aware that their actions or lack thereof that result in the creation of wrongs, such as so called “trade agreements,” that ultimately harm the People’s best interest may at some point be adjudicated to be harmful and therefore unlawful. Further, it would be wise of the wrong doers to realize that they, the perpetrators of wrongs, may be held responsible and accountable for those wrongs as easily as a simple declaration or adjudication! Said wrongs may have dire consequences for those found to have helped implement or aided their authorization, through their actions or lack thereof. Such individuals may be found guilty of sedition and/or treason and tried for treason to the United States of America. Any and all elected officials and officeholders would do well to remember that there’s no statutes of limitation for the crime of treason!
Many wrongs, perpetrated upon the People, such as “Fast Tracking, NAFTA, TPP, Shielding GMOs and/or their harm from discovery, etc., etc.,” may yet result in charges and convictions of treason for those responsible and accountable either directly and/or indirectly for their implementation. Charges and convictions for treason of government officials may be possible if it’s found that they failed to represent the best interest of the People and their actions subsequently turn out to undermine national security. It should be understood that any governmental officials, especially current or ex-presidents and current or ex-congressional officeholders, may be open to charges of treason should their actions and/or lack of actions be deemed to have undermined national security. i.e. if they failed to guard, protect, and improve/promote national security through any number of means – ECONOMICAL, HEALTH, DEFENCE, STOP CORRUPTION, CHECKS & BALANCES etc. Everyone would do well to remember that the final judgment rendered by the People concerning many governmental wrongs has yet to be written!
ANNOUNCEMENT: OPEN CHALLENGE TO ANY AND ALL GATEKEEPERS – WE CHALLENGE YOU TO DEBATE THE MERITS OF A PEOPLE’S BRANCH OF GOVERNMENT WITH US – THE MEMBER(S) OF THIS POLITICAL MOVEMENT – THE PEOPLE’S BRANCH. (YOU KNOW WHERE TO FIND US – www(dot)ThePeoplesBranch(dot)org)….
Did you hear that? GATEKEEPERS – What’s your response? Why do GATEKEEPERS always refuse open debate with this political movement? Why would any GATEKEEPER have a problem bringing this political movement to their followers and the masses? What part of the people’s ability to participate directly in their government thereby creating an incorruptible Checks and Balances upon governmental wrongs – atrocities and corruption – DON’T YOU GET?…
GATEKEEPERS can’t name one issue or one problem that a People’s Branch would make worse! Yet, we can name any number of issues and problems that a People’s Branch will make better, improve and/or solve for WE THE PEOPLE!
Why not advocate for a People’s Branch of government and let all the GATEKEEPERS you follow know that you want them to openly debate the merits of a People’s Branch to Check and Balance government?
Again – A People’s Branch creates the best way to Check and Balance government! If SPECIAL INTEREST continues to get their way then You and Your Loved Ones may lose everything! Why not help us help you?!
Additionally, We Understand that, for whatever reason, not smart enough, not wise enough, not courageous enough, dumbed-down, brainwashed, compartmentalized, lack of interest, unpatriotic, etc., etc., there will be many that will not see or understand why a People’s Branch is NOW Needed. And that there will be many that will not be interested in participating in a People’s Branch of government. Nevertheless, it’s Paramount that You, the Reasonable, Responsible, and Conscientious Participate Directly in government on matters that concern You and Your Loved Ones!
Finally, if You are Smart enough or Wise enough or Courageousness enough to See that this Political Movement is Needed and is Right for You, Your Loved Ones and Your Country then You Need to Help by Starting a People’s Branch Movement in Your Local Area, State and Nationally. If You have the Will and Fortitude to Help US Make a People’s Branch a Reality for You, Your Loved Ones and the Nation then Look to The People’s Branch website at www(dot)ThePeoplesBranch(dot)org to provide information to get started….
I’ve tried both a low fat diet and a low carb diet before and the only one to ever work for me was the low carb one. I lost over 60 pounds on it. When I had tried a low fat diet with calorie counting involved and feeling like I was always hungry I had lost only 10 pounds but quickly gained it all back. I’d rather cut out the carbs and live a lifestyle diet where I don’t feel hungry all the time anyway.
