Big-Oil & Gold, Pastor-Shill?: Lindsey Williams on Radio Liberty with Stan Monteith

Below, you will find a video (actually, it's an audio track with a photo "still" from Alex Jones' show on InfoWars.com). In that audio from Stan Monteith's radio program, Lindsey Williams gives some information and encourages people to visit his site to purchase info.

I have questions and comments. I haven't put these to Lindsay Williams first. It is no private matter between Christians though. He's exceedingly public about it. So, I take it to the world where he is doing his "work." I also disclose that I work under capitalism, although I seek to overturn it in each and every heart and say so openly and at length on the blog and elsewhere.

You'll need to listen to the "show" to verify whether my questions actually pertain.

I don't know Lindsey Williams. I do not recall ever having met him or interacted with him elsewise. His name and site are familiar because I had a previous occasion, by reason of someone else linking to him, of visiting there to see if there was anything of interest. I recall his statements about "hearing the voices of the elite." In all honesty (and I do try to be that way all the time), I wasn't favorably impressed.

Well, someone supplied a link to the video (audio) I've embedded below, so I gave him another listen. I did that because Stan Monteith has a following and even though I don't subscribe to his "American patriot" Christianity, I do not dismiss out of hand every last thing he has to say. In fact, there is much truth in what he has said about elitism and anti-Christ occultism (there is Christian occultism, but "occult" is such a loaded term that people don't understand that whatever is hidden to one by reason of lack of discernment is occulted to that one). Many people don't "see" what Jesus is about. In that sense, it's occult knowledge but through no fault of real Christians (who are not trying to hide Jesus's truths from anyone).

As for Lindsey Williams' talk on Stan Monteith's program, here are the following things that come to mind:

Is Lindsey suggesting that the drop in oil price to back below $50 a barrel was not in the news before he publicly first said it would happen (before he was told by an "insider" and before he published the info verbally or in writing on the Internet, etc.)? If memory serves, it was being openly discussed many months before it happened. It is true that the vast majority of people didn't believe it at the time, but the vast majority also didn't believe that there were no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq even though there were plenty of people saying exactly that there are no WMD's in Iraq and going to war is stupid and evil and will be based upon a known lie. The Bush administration and Bush certainly knew there were not WMDs where they were repeatedly claiming they knew they were. Donald Rumsfeld and the rest of them lied through their teeth.

Back directly to Lindsey:

Is Lindsey suggesting that all of what he terms "buzzwords" (he's using the term incorrectly) are also things he was told before they hit the news? He mentioned nothing that I hadn't already read out on the Internet, and I know he wasn't the source for any of those pieces I had read.

He says he "lived with the elite" for years, but he doesn't name names. Being the Chaplain on the Alaska Pipeline to begin with strikes me as being embedded in Big Oil. Ministering to people in all walks of life is proper — but the Alaska Pipelines connection raises a number of "insider" questions in terms of the term "shill." (A shill: "One who poses as a satisfied customer or an enthusiastic gambler to dupe bystanders into participating in a swindle.") It doesn't prove he's shilling in a direct way for Big Oil, but the question is valid. He is though "selling" oil (propagandizing for it but without stating its horrendous negatives around the world and Alaska) in a clear and plain sense and is benefiting directly, albeit fleetingly, as a result.

Lindsey Williams says that there is enough oil off Alaska to supply all of America's oil needs for 200 years. Let me say that if that is nothing but propaganda by Big Oil, it would be because the billionaire plutocrats of Exxon and the other multinational, globalist, mega-oil corporations want the American people to clamor selfishly and against environmental common sense (Creation Care) for offshore drilling. Lindsey cite Sarah Palin as an elite source of confirmation. Sarah Palin may be learning on the job, but she certainly has had a deserved reputation for being a bit of an airhead. Can she learn the script and act the part? She's gotten this far, hasn't she? Some group with very deep pockets has kept her in the limelight when from my perspective, she hasn't merited the attention other than that some people are using her as the "useful idiot," generally a rather mean-spirited term but sometimes quite apt.

Lindsey is also pushing gold — a very backward thing to be doing for a Christian pastor. It's backward because of Jesus' sayings about mammon and riches of that kind (REAL CHURCH, CHRISTIAN COMMONS, DEEDS, WORKS, FRUITS, COMMANDMENTS, BELIEF, FAITH, LAW, GIVING, PEACE, MERCY, FORGIVENESS, SEXUAL HARMLESSNESS, RIGHTEOUSNESS, BRINGING FORTH). It's also backwards given the clear and vastly better alternative to be pushing: United States Notes free of interest, debt, inflation, and taxes. This is a large discussion briefly touched upon in my previous post: "Gold-Bug Austrian Batted Zero: Ron Paul, Competing Currencies: Free Competition in Currency Act." I intend to continue elaborating on the issue as time permits.

Historically, gold has been very elitist. Consider that there are now many institutions that are far from the common people that hoard tons of gold. What do they want to happen to those stocks? They want them to rise. What will they be doing as they rise? They will be calculating when to sell. Buy low is always linked to "sell high" in that market, at least amongst the "elites."

This says nothing about slave and child labor and mega environmental damage done by gold mining and the rest of the supply chain involved with it. Whose pushing gold? Russia for one. Why? Russia has huge gold seams waiting to be mined.

Will gold do anything for the poorest of the poor in general? No. Will United States Notes as I'm proposing them do anything for them? Yes. They could and should be used to provide employment as soon as possible. Lindsey Williams though couches full-public-employment of in terms of a complete takeover by the elitists.

People are hungry and homeless who want jobs now but aren't finding work because of elitists, Lindsey. Elitists are not True Levelers!

The elitists hated the New Deal more than anyone, and the New Deal didn't go nearly far enough. It saved the evil that is capitalism. Franklin D. Roosevelt said as much. Now we reportedly have the greatest disparity in income (income gap) in American history. I'm not advocating for FDR, per se; but just as I don't dismiss everything Stan Monteith says, I don't dismiss everything FDR said and did. I take the best of everyone and Jesus. I throw away the rest.

Also note that Lindsey Williams is so deferential concerning those elites he claims to have known and to know. Where's the criticism? Jesus ripped the rich by his words of truth. Does Lindsey put you in mind of Jesus except when Lindsey tells people to stop and pray? He didn't remind me of Jesus's teachings in any way, shape, or form.

What I took away from Lindsey Williams' talk was that he reads the news especially the business and financial news and finds in it early statements that feel highly plausible given track records. He quickly gathers it, turns it into his talking points, records it, goes out on whatever circuit will have him, publicizes it, and calls people to come buy the information {for $99 according to a comment on the YouTube video page (some scathing comments there, but what's new); note the psychological pricing point to avoid "$100"} he doesn't share except that people pay him. That just isn't Christian pastoring to me.

Does he have sources? I should think there are people who are willing to talk with him and to tell him things as part of some deal. What is that "deal," and what do they really know? Well, it and they aren't with or for God.

The following should appear at the end of every post:

According to the IRS, "Know the law: Avoid political campaign intervention":

Tax-exempt section 501(c)(3) organizations like churches, universities, and hospitals must follow the law regarding political campaigns. Unfortunately, some don't know the law.

Under the Internal Revenue Code, all section 501(c)(3) organizations are prohibited from participating in any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for elective public office. The prohibition applies to campaigns at the federal, state and local level.

Violation of this prohibition may result in denial or revocation of tax-exempt status and the imposition of certain excise taxes. Section 501(c)(3) private foundations are subject to additional restrictions.

Political Campaign Intervention

Political campaign intervention includes any activities that favor or oppose one or more candidates for public office. The prohibition extends beyond candidate endorsements.

Contributions to political campaign funds, public statements of support or opposition (verbal or written) made by or on behalf of an organization, and the distribution of materials prepared by others that support or oppose any candidate for public office all violate the prohibition on political campaign intervention.

Factors in determining whether a communication results in political campaign intervention include the following:

  • Whether the statement identifies one or more candidates for a given public office
  • Whether the statement expresses approval or disapproval of one or more candidates' positions and/or actions
  • Whether the statement is delivered close in time to the election
  • Whether the statement makes reference to voting or an election
  • Whether the issue addressed distinguishes candidates for a given office

Many religious organizations believe, as we do, that the above constitutes a violation of the First Amendment of the US Constitution.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

That said, we make the following absolutely clear here:

  • The Real Liberal Christian Church and Christian Commons Project not only do not endorse any candidate for any secular office, we say that Christianity forbids voting in such elections.
  • Furthermore, when we discuss any public-office holder's position, policy, action or inaction, we definitely are not encouraging anyone to vote for that office holder's position.
  • We are not trying to influence secular elections but rather want people to come out from that entire fallen system.
  • When we analyze or discuss what is termed "public policy," we do it entirely from a theological standpoint with an eye to educating professing Christians and those to whom we are openly always proselytizing to convert to authentic Christianity.
  • It is impossible for us to fully evangelize and proselytize without directly discussing the pros and cons of public policy and the positions of secular-office holders, hence the unconstitutionality of the IRS code on the matter.
  • We are not rich and wouldn't be looking for a fight regardless. What we cannot do is compromise our faith (which seeks to harm nobody, quite the contrary).
  • We render unto Caesar what is Caesar's. We render unto God what is God's.
  • When Caesar says to us that unless we shut up about the unrighteousness of Caesar's policies and practices, we will lose the ability of people who donate to us to declare their donations as deductions on their federal and state income-tax returns, we say to Caesar that we cannot shut up while exercising our religion in a very reasonable way.
  • We consider the IRS code on this matter as deliberate economic duress (a form of coercion) and a direct attempt by the federal government to censor dissenting, free political and religious speech.
  • It's not freedom of religion if they tax it.

And when they were come to Capernaum, they that received tribute money came to Peter, and said, Doth not your master pay tribute? He saith, Yes. And when he was come into the house, Jesus prevented him, saying, What thinkest thou, Simon? of whom do the kings of the earth take custom or tribute? of their own children, or of strangers? Peter saith unto him, Of strangers. Jesus saith unto him, Then are the children free. (Matthew 17:24-26)
