"U.S. MUST give money to foreign governments in order to be safe" Jan Helfeld hits a home run in this interview.

I don't know who this idiot Dave Schneider is, but in this interview with Jan, he says the Constitution authorizes foreign aid!

UNBELIEVABLE!

Here's the brilliant interview by Jan...

Another gem from Jan...

Have my doubts If foreign aid has made us safer but I am certain it has made us poorer.

And it begs the question. If we have 17 trillion in debt and 70 to 121 trillion in promises depending on who you ask, and that will ultimately lead to our demise, then how does that benefit any American?

I think that we give away money to people because when you get someone dependent on you, then you control them and gvt. is really all about control and that is what this gvt is all about, just ask that lying criminal James Clapper.

When we stop giving welfare checks to Egpyt, Israel, Pakistan

And the other deadbeats sucking our tax dollars, the world will truly be a better place.

Bravo Jungle!

And about 40 other countries to which we willy-nilly give away money.

This congress is a bunch of thieves who pretend that charity is in the form of forced taxes from American people and re-distributed to the world.

Mostly for their own political gain.

Because a lot of companies and entities get rich off of U.S. foreign aid and in turn guarantee the politicians' re-elections.

It's a criminal as it gets.

And any president who approves a budget with foreign aid in it, is a TRAITOR to the American citizen.

yeah, whatever...

Sweden MUST become a muslim state, too. That's progress.

huuuh? Sweden???

Don't quite understand that comment.

Foreign Policy is the responsibility of the Executive Branch.

Jan Helfeld focused on Article 1, Section 8 which enumerates the powers of Congress. Article 2, Sections 2 and 3 deal with the powers of the President and the Executive Branch with regard to foreign policy. Read in a certain way, with the consent of Congress, the President can do pretty much anything his heart desires with regard to foreign policy or even domestic policy that falls within his remit.

Dave Schneider focused on the Marshall Plan to support his argument that foreign aid is Constitutional. In doing this he ignored the possibility that the Marshall Plan itself MAY have been unConstitutional. By the time it was enacted however the Constitution had been overwhelmingly corrupted especially by FDR who started the revolution to turn the US into a unitary socialist state under the forms of a federal republic.

Dave Schneider used the term that was used by Alexander Hamilton and those of his way of thinking ever since to undermine the explicit nature of the Constitution. This term is "implied". The ability of the Federal government to do all that is now done is "implied" in the Constitution. This has been the way in which the centralising powers have driven a stake through the heart of the Constitution. This is how they justify everything they do and it has been upheld by the Supreme Court. In other words the Constitution is a dead letter.

"Jesus answered them: 'Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.'" (John 8:34-36)

As a matter of reality your statement that the Constitution...

...is dead has plenty of merit. That's just the sad truth.

The goal of every international organization, foreign country, world central bank and other foreign entities is to steal as much of American's money and wealth as possible.

Woodrow Wilson started the real ball rolling with the Federal Reserve and the federal income tax.

Once they got that control then it was just a matter of time and legislation to steal our wealth and turn us into wage slaves.

The first steps in regaining any semblence of our constitutional republic is to:

1. END federal agencies like USAID which is designed only to STEAL and REDISTRIBUTE as much American wealth as they can get away with.

2. Exit organizations like the International Monetary Fund, World Bank, WTO, U.N., AIPAC etc which are all thieving entities aimed right at the heart of the American taxpayer to give to the rest of the world

3. Hold elected AND unelected officials accountable for their unconstitional actions. Anti-American rats like John Bolton come to mind who advocates more and more U.S. intervention and redistribution.

Unless we recognize these organizations and officials for what they are (Politically-based THIEVES), then we will never regain control of our destiny or our wealth.

Charity is a fine virtue which this country is known for, but FORCED "charity" is not charity.

It is pure THEFT from taxpayers and redistributed by politicians for their own POLITICAL gain.

They are traitors of the highest order.

Jan Helfeld is one of the most...

Jan Helfeld is one of the most underrated patriots in America!

He is so respectful and courteous in the face of such an array of brainwashed idiocy.

Freedom is the ability to do what you want to do.
Liberty is the ability to do what you ought to do.

Well spoken 2nd AmendUser...I fully agree.

I really like Jan's style of interview and it's very seldom that he talks with someone who is principled, consistent and not a hypocrite.

The way he catches contradictions in their thought patterns is fascintating.

Protect the Fiat Money System.

We give money to foreign governments to protect the fiat money system.

Ha!

It was in the interests of many beer joints in Chicago to give "foreign aid" to Al Capone and his henchmen in order to be more safe!

This Schneider guy is brainwashed by the "conservative" neo-cons.

We have ambassadors for the purpose of maintaining friendhsips with other nations in order to be at peace with all nations.

When other nations become hostile, we withdraw our ambassadors.

That's the constitutional way.

Freedom is the ability to do what you want to do.
Liberty is the ability to do what you ought to do.
