I Have A Better Idea: Get Rid Of The IRS, The Fed, and Vampyre Obama To Save The Dollar

I Have A Better Idea: Get Rid Of The IRS, The Fed, and Vampyre Obama To Save The Dollar

REMEMBER THIS?

The American Taxpayer

Here are a few  stories that got lost in the tidal wave of crap coming out of Washington, D.C. recently, and something new today concerning the death of the dollar.

While everybody on the MSM is talking about the $17 Billion (that’s 1/5th of 1%) that bambi’s minions were able to shave from the $3.7 TRILLION BUDGET, (I can’t wait for QUADRILLION to become the norm), he is actually talking about sucking the taxpayers of even more their lifeforce for guess who?…the IRS; another vampyre organization that needs to go bye-bye along with other outdated fads like the singing bass, the pet rock, shag haircuts, platform shoes, and bell bottoms.

Earlier this month, the usurper-in-chief announced his proposal to close tax loopholes “…for companies and individuals with operations or bank accounts overseas.”

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama is proposing to close tax loopholes for companies and individuals with operations or bank accounts overseas.

Obama said Monday he wants to prevent U.S. companies from deferring tax payments by keeping profits in foreign companies rather than recording them at home. He also called for more transparency in bank accounts held by Americans in tax havens such as the Cayman Islands.

Obama said that his plan would generate $210 billion in new taxes over 10 years and “make it easier” for companies to create jobs at home. Congress may resist portions of the plan.

Yes Sir, closing all those loopholes is going to keep American companies and American jobs here in the states….only if you are a complete dipsh*t, would you believe that.  How about we dump the Federal Reserve System, especially since they appear to be covering the transfer of $9 Trillion Dollars to whomever is their current flavor of the month, get rid of the Internal Revenue Service, (as you will soon see), and send the fascist in charge packing, (impeachment anyone?)

A few days later, it got even better.

Obama seeks to double tax law enforcement budget

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Barack Obama proposed on Thursday nearly doubling funds to enforce U.S. tax laws next year, with an aim of more than quadrupling funding for tax compliance to $2.1 billion within five years.

The budget plan seeks $12.1 billion for the Internal Revenue Service, responsible for collecting and enforcing individual and corporate tax laws, for fiscal 2010, which begins October 1. That amounts to a roughly 5.2 percent increase over the IRS budget for 2009, which was $11.5 billion.

The budget proposal, which must be approved by Congress, includes a $890 million request to boost tax enforcement, including in the international arena, an increase of $400 million from 2009.

Underreporting of income by individuals and businesses led to a “tax gap” of $345 billion in 2001, the most recent year available, according to the government. Of that, corporate income tax and employment tax underreporting made up about $84 billion, according to a report by the Government Accountability Office.

The Obama administration said it would use the funds to further expand its efforts to boost compliance outside the U.S., “placing greater scrutiny on cross-border transactions and tax issues.”

Now most of us industrious little monsters know that the tax code is some 70,000 pages and that TurboTax Cheating Timmie cannot even do his own taxes.  We also know that our taxes are going to be going up next year, and that the 8 or so dollars that we are receiving in our paychecks is tax money we already paid and now we get to pay taxes on it again.  How can we be so frakkin’ blessed to have such a patriotic opportunity to pay taxes on the same money twice?  How?…It’s.Like.A.Dream.Come.True.  Joe Biden and the rest of the left wing liberal democrats are having wet dreams about this ponzi scheme.

Meanwhile, in the rest of realityville known as the world, most of you may already know that Brazil and China are in negotiations to replace the American Dollar as their currency of choice for trade deals between their two countries.

Brazil and China eye plan to axe dollar

Brazil and China will work towards using their own currencies in trade transactions rather than the US dollar, according to Brazil’s central bank and aides to Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, Brazil’s president.

The move follows recent Chinese challenges to the status of the dollar as the world’s leading international currency.

Mr Lula da Silva, who is visiting Beijing this week, and Hu Jintao, China’s president, first discussed the idea of replacing the dollar with the renminbi and the real as trade currencies when they met at the G20 summit in London last month.

An official at Brazil’s central bank stressed that talks were at an early stage. He also said that what was under discussion was not a currency swap of the kind China recently agreed with Argentina and which the US had agreed with several countries, including Brazil.

“Currency swaps are not necessarily trade related,” the official said. “The funds can be drawn down for any use. What we are talking about now is Brazil paying for Chinese goods with reals and China paying for Brazilian goods with renminbi.”

Henrique Meirelles and Zhou Xiaochuan, governors of the two countries’ central banks, were expected to meet soon to discuss the matter, the official said.

Mr Zhou recently proposed replacing the US dollar as the world’s leading currency with a new international reserve currency, possibly in the form of special drawing rights (SDRs), a unit of account used by the International Monetary Fund.

In September, Brazil and Argentina signed an agreement under which importers and exporters in the two countries may make and receive payments in pesos and reals, although they may also continue to use the US dollar if they prefer.

Now add this to the tsunami of crap overwhelming the average American.

Day of reckoning looms for the U.S. dollar

The U.S. dollar slid against most major currencies Wednesday, hitting a five-month low of US$1.3775 against the euro and pushing the Canadian dollar up US1.21¢ to a seven-month high of US87.69¢.

“By many measures, the U.S. appears just a few short steps away from losing its coveted triple-A status, unless the recovery turns out to be considerably stronger than expected and the fiscal repair is faster than commonly expected,” said Douglas Porter, deputy chief economist at BMO Capital Markets. “A downgrade could boost the cost of funding U.S. debt at the margin, but underlying inflation and fiscal fundamentals will ultimately be the primary driver.”

Despite the risk, Paul Ashworth, chief economist at Capital Economics, said the United States was unlikely to lose its rating. But, in the event of a downgrade, he said it would probably not have a lasting impact on the U.S. dollar.

However, he said a big threat lurked in the country’s expanded monetary base, which now stands at about US$1.8-trillion. While the expanded monetary base was needed to feed economic growth and ward off deflation under the Fed’s quantitative easing plan, Mr. Ashworth said such high levels could fuel rampant inflation once broader monetary conditions improved.

And then we have Greenspan weighing in on the little banks capital problems.

Greenspan Says Banks Still Have a ‘Large’ Capital Requirement

May 21 (Bloomberg) — Former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan signaled that the financial crisis has yet to end even as borrowing costs tumble, warning that U.S. banks must raise “large” amounts of money.

“There is still a very large unfunded capital requirement in the commercial banking system in the United States and that’s got to be funded,” Greenspan said in an interview yesterday in Washington. He also said that “until the price of homes flattens out we still have a very serious potential mortgage crisis.”

Greenspan’s comments suggest he sees a bigger capital shortfall in the banking system than reflected in regulators’ stress tests on the 19 biggest U.S. lenders. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner told lawmakers yesterday that banks have issued more than $56 billion in new stock or debt since the tests found 10 firms needed to raise about $75 billion.

A lack of capital at banks may inhibit lending to consumers and businesses, tempering any economic recovery. The former Fed chief, who left the central bank in 2006, said that the continued slump in home prices is putting at risk millions of borrowers.

“We’re on the edge and if this thing doesn’t get resolved quickly I’m worried,” he said before a meeting with House of Representatives members on financial regulation that was organized by the Washington-based Bipartisan Policy Center.

Home prices will only start to stabilize once the “liquidation” rate of single-family homes has peaked, he said. “I don’t think we’re there yet.”

This is what Alan Greenspan is talking about.

Small Banks Need Capital, Too, But Could Face Harder Time

Big banks aren’t the only ones under stress-their smaller competitors also need to raise billions in capital to meet tighter government standards but may have trouble doing so, some analysts believe.

While investors have focused mostly on the nation’s largest 19 banks that were the subject of the government stress tests, shares of some smaller banks have been getting pummeled since last week’s rollout of the test results.

One of the reasons: the stricter capital requirements for all banks-not just the 19 biggest-may prove too onerous for some of the regional and community institutions, causing some of them to fail.

“Most of these little banks won’t be able to do it,” said Richard Bove, banking analyst at Rochdale Securities. “We’re headed to a situation where the focus is going to be on small banks. The small banks are going to fail in, I think, pretty large numbers. I’m guessing 150.”

Now pay attention to this next section kids.

Many of the banks will have trouble raising capital due to a variety of factors, among them a “crowding out” factor in which the larger banks will scoop up the lion’s share of the investment money available, and the big banks’ diversity of business that contrasts to many smaller institutions’ stock-in-trade of basic retail lending.

“The ones that can’t access capital are going to have to basically get on their knees and go to a larger bank to take them over,” said Michael Cohn, chief investment strategist at Atlantis Asset Management in New York. “Over the next six months there’s going to be some consolidation with the banks that can’t raise capital, that are OK now but don’t meet the stress-test guidelines. Basically the government’s going to force them to consolidate.”

An additional factor, Bove suggests, is a fundamental desire by the government to knock out the weaker community banks and concentrate financial power in the hands of larger institutions.

That would fit into a philosophy that the comparatve lack of mega US banks and the capital to which they have access makes domestic corporations less competitive with their foreign counterparts, he said.

“The policy of the US government from the mid-1980s on has been to try to eliminate as many small banks as possible, although I doubt any government would admit that’s what they are doing,” he said.

Implementing the stress tests and putting the large banks into position where they would become over-capitalized is consistent with a strategy the government has been implementing since the administration of President George H.W. Bush.

Tracking Stimulus Spending May Not Be as Easy as Promised

I am not going to lay the whole economic meltdown situation at Bambi and Timmie’s feet, the responsibility for that could be spread over numerous government agencies, congressmen, senators, presidents, and banking officials, but Bambi and Timmie are NOT making the situation any better even though Timmie, (who cannot even do his own taxes), is saying the economy is stabilizing – wishful thinking if one were to ask me.

I’m still waiting to see what happens with the commercial real estate bubble.

If you have not figured out yet that the whole purpose of this economic meltdown was to completely drain the average American of every last penny, better get on board because after they print all this money and bail out all these companies, inflation is going to be gearing up to finish us off.

C. Robert Kidder; New Head Of Chrysler

It is always nice to get control of a large corporation with a man on the inside and one doesn’t even have to spend a dime to do it while b*tchslapping the poor average American who is actually paying for the rape.

See how many names you recognize…starting with one of my biggest fans, Morgan Stanley.

Kidder Named Chrysler Chairman

Morgan Stanley’s Lead Director Will Help Select Auto Maker’s New Board

DETROIT — Chrysler LLC said C. Robert Kidder, lead director at Morgan Stanley, will replace Robert Nardelli as chairman after the company completes its reorganization in bankruptcy court and seals its alliance with Fiat SpA.

Mr. Kidder, 64 years old, was selected by the U.S. Treasury Department, which had the right to select four of the nine members of Chrysler’s new board, a Treasury spokeswoman confirmed. He will help select other members of the board that will oversee the restructured company, which will be called Chrysler Group LLC.

C. Robert Kidder to Become Chairman of Chrysler Group LLC

AUBURN HILLS, Mich., May 20, 2009; Chrysler LLC today announced that C. Robert Kidder, former Chairman of Borden Chemical Inc. and of Duracell International Inc., will become Chairman of Chrysler Group LLC, once it completes its acquisition of the operating assets of Chrysler LLC and completes a global alliance with Fiat SpA. He will succeed Robert L. Nardelli.

“We are most fortunate that Bob Kidder will lead the new company through its transformation,” said Nardelli. “My number one priority has been to preserve Chrysler and the livelihoods of thousands of people who depend on its success. With his broad expertise serving on numerous world-class boards and his accomplished business background, Bob will provide the leadership and strategic counsel that will help to create a strong global competitor moving forward.”

With more than 40 years of experience, Kidder currently serves on the boards of Morgan Stanley, where he is the lead director, Schering-Plough Corporation, and Microvi Biotech Inc. He previously has served as Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of both Duracell International Inc. and Borden Chemical Inc. and as director of such companies as Electronic Data Systems Corporation and General Signal Corporation. During his tenure with McKinsey and Co. Inc., Bob worked with a major OEM client in the automotive industry. Bob currently is Chairman and CEO of 3Stone Advisors LLC, an investment firm that focuses on clean-tech companies. He holds an M.S., Industrial Economics from Iowa State University and a B.S., Industrial Engineering from the University of Michigan. He resides with his family in Columbus, Ohio.

“I am pleased to join Chrysler at a time when Chrysler is poised to launch an exciting new era,” said Kidder. “I am confident that Chrysler will emerge from Chapter 11 a lean and powerful competitor, combining its own rich history of innovation with Fiat’s technology and expertise to invigorate the American car market and to challenge other car companies around the globe.”

Chrysler LLC announced on April 30, 2009 that, as a result of the comprehensive restructuring plan agreed to by many of its stakeholders, it had reached an agreement in principle to establish a global strategic alliance with Fiat to form a vibrant new company.

On the same day, Chrysler LLC and 24 of its wholly-owned U.S. subsidiaries also filed voluntary petitions under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code in U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York. Chrysler also filed a motion under Section 363 of the Bankruptcy Code requesting the swift approval by the Court of the agreement with Fiat and the sale of Chrysler’s principal assets to the new company. The benefit of this type of filing is speed. It will allow a leaner new company to emerge in less than 60 days from the time of filing, well positioned for long-term viability.

Nardelli, Chrysler’s Chairman and CEO since August 2007, announced on April 30 his plan to leave the company following the completion of the transactions. He will return to Cerberus Capital Management LP as an advisor. He said that it was “an appropriate time to let others take the lead in the transformation of Chrysler with Fiat, and I will work closely with all of our stakeholders to see that this new company swiftly emerges with a successful closing of the alliance.”

Smoke And Mirrors; Volker Has Been Muzzled

Smoke And Mirrors; Volker Has Been Muzzled

paul-volker

Yesterday I read that Bambi’s economic advisory board was “finally” going to hold their first meeting since being appointed early in February, 2009.  Since the economy has been issue #1 for well over a year, one would think that this “board” would have been going strong by the end of February, and one would think that the treasury spots would have been filled by now.  One would be wrong though, because rebuilding the economy is NOT job #1; completely breaking it down and draining every last penny from the American Taxpayer through nationalization of any and all income producing business, and forcing every average American into the yoke of slavery to Federal Government dependence is JOB #1.  We are already slaves to the national income tax and work 5 full months just to pay for our indentured servitude.  I have been saying for months that Barack Obama will turn on his handlers who are seeking a global government just so he can install himself as the first American Dictator of the Obamanation, and I am watching it all unfold.

Paul Volker assisted with creating this mess alongside the depression expert, Ben Bernanke and the international currency expert, TurboTax Timmie Geithner, among others.  All three of these traitors are Federal Reserve soldiers to the Pilgrims. If Volker has a “come to jesus” moment, he will have to go off the reservation to have anyone listen to him as he has been absorbed by the Borg Collective.

Obama’s quiet advisory board holds first meeting

The prime office space in the southeast corner of the Treasury building sits vacant four months into the Obama administration. Its ample desk is empty, the walls are bare. Occupants from nearby offices occasionally gather there when in need of a conference table, but otherwise, it’s a den of inactivity.

The assigned occupant? Paul Volcker, the towering former chairman of the Federal Reserve and now chairman of President Barack Obama’s Economic Recovery Advisory Board. Like Volcker, the 16-member advisory board, announced with fanfare by Obama in February, has been largely out of public view despite the administration’s frenetic attention to the economy.

On Wednesday, its members will make their first public, joint appearance since they gathered at the White House on Feb. 6. The focus of the board’s presentation is expected to be energy and jobs.

Poor Paul Volker, Bambi’s Economic Advisory Board Chairman thought that he had been hired because of his ideas and experience.  Little did he know that he was hired because once inside the Obamanation, he cannot ridicule or critique the usurper or his policies.  I am still amazed at how stupid people become when they start drinking the koolaid.

Volcker Struggles for Respect on President’s Economic Board

Former Federal Reserve Chairman Paul Volcker is reportedly unsure of the president’s economic recovery advisory board’s influence and unhappy at having to defer to other members of Obama’s economic team.

Former Federal Reserve Chairman Paul Volcker can’t get enough respect.

As he convened the first meeting of the president’s economic recovery board with the president himself in attendance, the Washington Post offered a front page story alleging Volcker is unsure of the panel’s influence and unhappy at having to defer to other members of Obama’s economic team.

After the meeting, one of the president’s advisors cut short a question and answer session before Volcker could offer the concluding statement he’d planned. The slight was unintended and Volcker had already spoken and answered questions. But it seemed to illustrate one of the problems of the president’s high powered “team of rivals.”

Volcker was a prominent advisor during Obama’s campaign and months before the board was actually created then President-Elect Obama announced Volcker would chair it. The 81-year-old Volcker is praised for helping tame inflation in the late 1970’s and early 1980’s, and President Obama chose him to lead the advisory group in part to reassure the financial community that he’d be getting advice from someone who is respected by Republicans and Democrats. Volcker was appointed to the Fed by President Jimmy Carter, in 1979, and reappointed by President Ronald Reagan in 1983.

Volcker is said to resent having to defer to Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and Larry Summers, the head of the National Economic Council, on how to best overhaul the financial system.

In addition, Christina Romer, the head of the Council of Economic Advisors and Austan Goulsbee, a member of the council, have a more public role, than Volcker, in promoting the administration’s economic policies. Other reports say Geithner and Summers are rivals themselves, with Summers choosing a cramped office in the West Wing, in part because it gives him better access to the Oval Office.

White House officials say Volcker’s advisory group, which includes CEOs, labor officials and prominent economists, was created to offer an “outside the beltway perspective” on how to deal with the financial crisis.

Volcker told the Wall Street Journal last month organizing it has “been a nightmare.” Goolsbee, who is also staff director of Volcker’s advisory board, says the group had a rough start, but is now very influential.

Stay tuned for an upcoming post on the banks that are needing capital because of the commercial real estate bubble that is about to pop, and the coming change in America’s Triple A status.
