New Gun Control Restrictions To Be Announced By President Obama on January 12, 2016

On January 12, 2016, President Obama will announce new gun restrictions that will affect how guns are sold and purchased. It’s an incremental move in the path to ultimate control and restrictions on buying guns for Americans. Will it stop you from buying that rifle you’ve been eyeing? Probably not. Will it change how you buy guns next year or the year after. Doubtful. Is the Left coming for your guns. You bet they are, just like the frog in the pot of water that slowly warms to a boil. You don’t notice the heat until it’s too late!gun control noose

The gun control noose is slowly tightening around every Americans neck, and if you can’t feel it yet, you will. At first it feels snug and safe, like a scarf around your neck; but as the second amendment to the constitution gets slowly chipped away by tyrannical laws and executive actions, the noose begins to choke you, eventually killing Freedom and The American Way.

“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way – in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only.” – A Tale of Two Cities, Charles Dickens, 1859.

What is Agenda 21 and How does it affect you?

In 1992, The United Nations held a meeting in Brazil they lovingly called an “Earth Summit”. At that meeting, a book and concept were introduced called Agenda 21. This “new” concept was a Utopian ideal that brought together sustainable development, social justice, economics and more to ostensibly create an ideal future for the younger generation. It was a plan to change the world, starting at the global level and working down to a local partnership.

But, hidden by the Utopian ideals of saving the environment and empowering the lower classes were much darker, even diabolical ideals that are the stuff of comic book villains: Population control, loss of sovereignty, land and property seizure, human slavery and the like. Sound crazy? Dr. Evil, the evil heroin from the Austin Powers movie couldn’t have come up with anything more terrible for the future of mankind.Agenda 21 Map

The trick behind Agenda 21 is that it is made to be appealing to young, idealistic people who wish to make a positive change to the future. For example, a young person might see the Agenda 21 concept of sustainable development as a great thing for planet Earth. Re-wilding, green building, alternative energy, sustainable growth, etc. are all noble ideals, after all.

What you don’t hear is who authored the core of the Agenda 21 ideals – it wasn’t a think tank of altruistic humanists. Instead, the author is none other than the leader of the World Socialist Party – Gro Harlem Brundtland. And things like re-wilding mean taking land from individuals and giving it to the government, which is decided by a small group of bureaucrats. Sustainable growth may equate to limiting where you can live, or restrictions on your property. It also may mean population reduction.

Unfortunately Agenda 21 is full of Socialist ideals that are disguised by environmentalism and progressive attitude. And the ideas of agenda 21 go against what men like Jefferson, Washington and Franklin warned about so many years ago. At the root of this issue, our American freedom is at stake.

Please research it for yourself. Agenda 21 is not coming to America; it’s already here. And it smells a lot like tyranny to me.

“Commerce with all nations, alliance with none, should be our motto.” – T.Jefferson
”People willing to trade their freedom for temporary security deserve neither and will lose both.” –B.Franklin


”The time is near at hand which must determine whether Americans are to be free men or slaves.” –
George Washington

Locked Doors, Fences and Privacy Signs

There are 3 things you should know to maximize your privacy at home. Whether you live in an apartment, house or shack, you have rights. And law enforcement or government representatives generally do not have the right to enter your home (with some exceptions).

Putting up a good façade is a good start. And I don’t mean doing anything illegal. It is widely known that there are loopholes and outs in the legal system, and you need to know where those lie to maximize the privacy and security of your castle.

Here at, we have 3 general rules for protecting your home from those who are not welcome:

  1. Lock your door, and don’t open it unless law enforcement has a warrant.
  2. Keep your fences up and the gates locked, creating a barrier between your property and the outside world.
  3. Post signage around your home and property letting outsiders know that trespassing is prohibited and that the premises are considered private property.

A locked gate and a fence creates a barrier for prying government types.

Most of these suggestions may seem trivial and simplistic. After all, there are more advanced things people can do to maximize security: building walls, installing security cameras and alarm systems, etc. But the average man or woman has the law working for him or her, if they choose to take advantage of it. For example, when police, code enforcement officers, etc. come to your door you don’t have to open the door (unless they have a warrant to search the property).

If code enforcement or other government representatives encounter a locked gate and fenced property, they cannot enter the property to conduct investigations or search.

Putting up signs also makes it clear to anyone who visits the property that the property has been established as a private property and no one is allowed without permission. Common examples of effective signage might read “Private Property: Keep Out” or “Posted: No Trespassing”.

no trespassing

Signage discourages burglars and establishes boundaries.

Again, all these actions seem simple, but they all count toward the private property defense in a US court of law. And they cannot be ignored by law enforcement or governmental representatives who enforce Federal, state and local law.

Protect Your Family’s Privacy: Don’t Post Photos on Facebook

There’s a new trend by social media to collect data. Well, it’s not new, but it may be a shock to some. Every time you post that cute pic of your little one on Facebook or any other social media, the photo and it’s associated data is collected and stored. If you continue to post information and photos a profile is created of you, your family and friends – something that could later be used against you.

facebook privacy

Fight the urge to share photos on Facebook, or to even use Facebook at all. You may be putting your family or your own life in danger each time you post something new.

New Barbie Doll Steals Childrens Privacy!

Have you heard about the new Barbie doll that listens to and learns what your children are doing and saying? Oh, and it also has the ability to communicate via Wi-Fi with your cell phone – which we all know means anyone may be listening, most likely the government.

Beware of what you buy your children this year for Christmas…hello barbie privacy

Immigration: A Real Drain On US Resources

Each month thousands of immigrants are spilling across America’s border to the south. And the number of immigrants from Central and South America is growing. Why? Because here in the United States the policy of the US Government has gone from one where there are measured opportunities for immigrants to the unofficial policy of making bold promises to anyone who can get across the border. The word on the street in other countries is that if you can get to America (legally or illegally) the streets are paved with gold! You’ll be welcomed with open arms by the government that wants to pay for your healthcare, give you money and take care of you.

Unfortunately, Americans won’t be able to pay for unlimited immigration, just like we can’t pay for unlimited wars in other countries, unlimited foreign aid, a growing, limitless populace that expects their healthcare and benefits to be paid for and so many other government entitlements. illegal mexican immigrants

The pattern here is that more and more tax dollars are being spent, the expectation for more is rising, and the group of tax payers is shrinking in comparison of those that are taking. The outlook for our countries security does not look good for the future.

Do You Have Enough Cash To Survive a Financial Crisis?

Last Friday, President Obama signed into law the 2016 Federal Budget (“Omnibus Spending Bill of 2016”). It includes $1.1 Trillion in government spending. Our wise and faithful US Senators and Congressmen have also agreed on a plan to reduce taxes by $622 Billion – most of which allegedly doesn’t impact Main Street America.

It should also be noted that the United States is currently in debt somewhere between $16 and $22 Trillion! A shocking number!

Now when you put all that information together: Rising Debt, Increasing Budget & Decreasing Taxes, what do you get? Sounds like a recipe for disaster to me. You can’t have money going out faster than it comes in!

Despite the fact that our government has taken the liberty to spend as much money as they can with no plan for paying it back, there’s no reason we all can’t be personally fiscally responsible. There’s no better time for each of us to be responsible citizens and to begin paying off all debt and saving for the rainy day that is sure to come in the future.

The message is simple: take care of yourself and your family; the government will not be there to bail you out when you can’t pay your bills. After all, It can’t even balance it’s own accounts!

What you should do:

  1. Start saving money, even if it’s just $20/week.
  2. Pay off all debt. Stop buying stuff you don’t need!
  3. Save more money. You may need it soon!


Top 5 Privacy Gifts to Give this Christmas

This Christmas you could do the usual and buy a bunch of Chinese import junk for your family and friends. This is just par for the course. You show up at the party with a gift for everyone. You know, a tie for dad, some costume jewelry for mom and lead contaminated choke hazard or two for the young children. You’re good to go and you made it another year of satisfying the Hallmark tradition and not drawing attention to yourself as a Scrooge. In my opinion it’s a symptom of slavery.

It’s up to you but this year if you would like to be an adult you may want to step to the plate and give some actual useful gifts this year. But I must warn you: if you take any of my suggestions you may walk away from the Christmas party feeling like you actually gave a present your friends and family will use and appreciate. You may also feel good about the money you spent rather than the usual guilt hangover felt around December 26th each year!

So here’s my best suggestions for the privacy seeker in your circle of people.

  1. Of Course I am going to suggest the best book on the market for privacy: “Disappear in 24 Hours” by Lonn E. Wolfenstein. Get it on the privacyliving website by clicking “products”. This eBook is well worth it at $39.95 but I am going to give you a new link where you can buy it right now on sale for $17.95. Just click here This is a great tool to have on hand if you need to get out of the limelight quick or if you just want some great tips on privacy. The info is all packed into this very informative book.disappear in 24 hours
  2. Silver Bullion: I love silver and it’s a really great gift. There are some people on my list that get silver coins from me every year. This works great for children who get too many toys anyway. If you buy them silver every year, by the time they are adults they will have a good backup savings for a currency collapse.
  3. Drones: This is actually a hot item this year, so good luck getting a quality one. Drones work great for counter surveillance and just a good time all together. Just remember that the privacy of the actual film taken is in question. Check the Go Pro camera scandal a couple of years back.
  4. Lifestraw: I’m not sure what’s more amazing: This little miracle item that can allow you to drink clean water from a polluted stream or the fact that many people still don’t know this item even exists. It’s a really great affordable item that provides the most important nutritional element to human life: water. Great for anyone on the go….or on the run!lifestraw
  5. Guns and Ammo: This doesn’t have to be a crazy expensive gift if you don’t want it to be. Just find out what weapon your recipient already has and get them some ammo. If you want to go all out then get them a gun you think would benefit them. Nothing complements privacy as well as a well defended home. “A strong man armed guarding his estate will not see his possessions disturbed” Luke 11:21

The Future of “Suspicious Behavior” Detection Technology

Security experts in France are eyeing new technology to prevent future terrorism. The technology reportedly consists of software that analyzes video from live video feeds in public places, like a subway station, for example. Once the video feed is collected for analysis, software reviews it for things like changes in body temperature, raised voices and jerky body movements. It also looks for potential luggage or packages that have been left unattended.

video monitoring technology

The French Security Experts are also planning on launching a smartphone app that will allow citizens to report on suspicious people and things that they observe.


Wait a minute; is this a joke? Are we living in the George Orwell novel 1984 or is it 2015? Perhaps both. This whole thing sounds very Orwellian to us here at Privacy Living. Cameras that assess if you are a terrorist and apps so you can tattle on your fellow citizens? Welcome to our sad future.


Haven’t read any Orwell yet? You need to do so. Start with these classics:

1984, G. Orwell, 1949

Animal Farm, G. Orwell, 1945

Pay With Cash

When it comes to financial transactions in the privacy world, cash is king! Cash allows you to maintain your privacy when checks and credit cards can leave a long paper trail for all the wrong bad guys to follow.

Reasons to use Cash:

No. 1: Cash is not traceable. It’s a uniform currency that everyone has and everyone should use.

No. 2: Keeps you out of debt. If you don’t use a credit card (money you don’t have), then you are only buy things with the real money in your hand. When you don’t have the money, you don’t buy anything. It’s that simple. And debt is just another way to be tracked!

No. 3: No online transactions. You can’t use greenbacks to buy stuff on

No. 4: U.S. Dollars are accepted almost everywhere in the world. If you find yourself needing to depart to another country quickly, you can take your dollars along and not worry about exchange or acceptability.

No. 5: Less Risk of Identity Theft. If you are not using checks and credit cards, no one can steal your data.

No.6: Provides More Freedom. Cash gives you the freedom to buy/purchase anywhere it is accepted, which is pretty much everywhere – unlike some bank/credit cards and checks.

No. 7. negotiate a better deal. When you are holding the cash, you can negotiate a better deal. Cash holds power!
