It’s been said that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, and in this writer’s case, it is definitely the truth as I remember, quite vividly, watching my father (a WWII vet) yell and shake his fist at the television as former President Nixon stated that he wasn’t a crook. How dare Nixon behave in such a criminal manner when my father and millions of other Americans had put their lives on the line. Nixon was an embarrassment (as every president since has become). I am sure I inherited a healthy distrust of elected politicians on that day and the days that followed as Watergate unfolded. I am also sure that many of us, over the years, have done the same thing as we watched our Constitutional Republic, slowly but surely, be hijacked by a globalist driven cabal of government/military/multi-national corporations using our expertise, life energy (income tax) and our soldiers’ blood to feed the cabal’s vision of America as a global imperialist empire.
Their puppets, Reagan (raise taxes, go farther in debt, withdrawal from Lebanon, invade Grenada, CIA creation of the Mujaheddin which morphed into al-Qaida, Iran/Contra, the ‘War on Drugs’, and my favorite, Amnesty), Bush 41 (‘read my lips’, Iraq, the ‘New World Order’, and allegiance to the United Nations), Clinton (Impeachment, WTO, the subsequent loss of millions of jobs, more ‘War On Drugs’ money lost, numerous ‘Gates’), all corrupt men and a complete embarrassment to us as Americans.
Then, just when I thought it couldn’t get any worse, George Bush (the second) and Al Gore were trotted out as our leadership choices by the powers that be.
Unbelievable. That is until Barack Obama and John McCain. And then Barack Obama and Mitt Romney.
The first Bush was so bad that junior needed election ‘help’ to secure the White House. I knew that our political disenchantment leading to apathy was going to be used to conquer us. Little did I realize just how far the globalists would go to kill more than one bird with one stone.
Yes, 9.11, where not one, but two hijacked commercial jets were allowed to strike the Twin Towers, 17 MINUTES APART. Really? 34 MINUTES later, another ‘plane’ hit the Pentagon. One doesn’t even have to approach the explosions in the towers prior to the planes hitting or the controlled demolition or the ‘pulling’ of Building 7 aspects of this story.
Does anybody in their right mind really believe that the strongest and most technologically advanced military presence on the planet failed this epically?
This one event spawned the ‘never-ending unseen enemy’, the ‘Bill of Rights’ and Constitution shredding Patriot Act, the new gestapo, in the form of the Department of Homeland Security and the TSA, a now totally rogue government with unbelievable new powers to spy on it’s citizens, undeclared wars, and a massive outlay of cash that we no longer had (thanks Billy Clinton’s WTO free trade suicide), turning us into the debtor nation to foreign interests.
Enter the globalists’ newest Hollywood creation; Barack Obama with his trillions in deficit spending started by Bush II (leading to our economic demise and impending ‘walk of shame’ as beggars to the United Nation’s table, and possible civil war), nationalization of certain industries, the continued funding of the Big Banks to make them bigger, the on-going military presence in Iraq and the on-going war in Afghanistan, ‘Fast and Furious’, Benghazi, the un-Constitutional Obamacare law (I don’t give a damn what the Supreme Court said; they allowed the installation of Barack and had the audacity to state that the Obamacare mandate is Constitutional – in a pig’s eye!), and the now full force ‘police state’ surveillance of Americans culminating in the president (Obama and whatever fuhrer comes next) being able to use the US Military to arrest and detain Americans indefinitely by invoking the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).
Are You F*&^$%# Kidding Me?
Yet, for me, the true defining moment that we (as Americans) are under attack from a cabal that does not have America’s best interests at heart (and is winning) was when Jon Corzine was allowed a free pass on a $1.6 Billion Dollar blatant theft of customers’ money. In that one moment, everyone should have realized that the ‘Rule of Law’ had been taken down the garden path to be beaten, tortured, raped, and curb-stomped to death. The ‘Rule of Law’ no longer applies in America. Just as the Constitution was made ‘to be a living document that could be tortured enough to say whatever’ the cabal wanted it to say. Just as enough mass killings (Columbine, Fort Hood, Tucson, Aurora, Newtown) will drive the very loud, liberal herd toward the abolition of the last remaining guard against any populaces’ genocide; the right to bear arms. Just ask the Russians, and the Chinese, and more than a few other populations.
After the shooting on Friday in Newtown, I turned to my husband and asked him what he thought would happen in America when Obama signs an executive order instructing the military to confiscate all firearms in the country? I cannot print his reply but I am sure the possibility has occurred to many of you given that the president can now arrest and detain indefinitely any American he so chooses while police departments all over the country are getting their shiny new drones to spy on us because the cameras everywhere just aren’t getting them off anymore.
We are definitely not in Kansas anymore Toto.
From the NY Times this morning (just Google the title as I refuse to link to them):
Pro-Gun Democrats Signaling Openness to Limits
Several people familiar with the deliberations at the White House in recent days said the administration, for now, was pursuing a strategy of taking time to develop a holistic response that could potentially be announced all at once, an executive order and a legislative proposal, rather than rushing to put out an executive order alone.
Saw that one coming a mile away….considering who we are dealing with.
I have one thing to say. The globalist cabal that is now in charge of America and has suspended any semblance of a Constitutional Republic with the accompanying ‘Rule of Law’ WILL NOT be getting any of our guns and our ability to defend ourselves and our families. You are dreamin’ and so is China (who is salivating at the prospect of a disarmed America). We know that you have been waging a war (for decades) against a entire world that didn’t even know they were being attacked and systematically subjugated through wars, famine, poverty, drug addictions, diseases, poisons, pharmaceuticals, debt, and a myriad of other cabal weapons.
We are aware, and after all we have been through, the line in the sand is being drawn right now.
The Founders, in their wisdom, gave us a way out. Actually, more than one.
“I Do Not Consent”
A divinely inspired man of 33 years of age once wrote:
IN CONGRESS, JULY 4, 1776
The unanimous Declarationof the thirteen unitedStates of America
hen in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.— Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.
deriving their just powers (is the NDAA, the Patriot Act, Drones, Surveillance, the Federal Reserve’s debt enslavement, Wealth Redistribution, Income Tax, and unending wars (just to name a few) ‘just’?)
from the consent of the governed, (the governed (on both sides) have been screaming at you for a decade to STOP!)
— That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, ($16 Trillion in debt?)
it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, (Nullification – 10th Amendment)
and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. (STATES’ RIGHTS)
As the cabal continues to push their agenda using their liberal left tools, America is beyond waking up as evidenced by the Tea Parties on the ‘right’ and the Occupy Movement on the ‘left’.
Stop consenting to the dismantling of the American Republic by ‘going along to get along’.
The Clintons would later blame “Harry and Louise,” the fictional couple in the ads aired by the insurance industry, for undermining health reform. But the real saboteurs are named Herman and John. Herman Cain is the president of Godfather’s Pizza and president-elect of the National Restaurant Association. An articulate black entrepreneur, Cain transformed the debate when he challenged Clinton at a town meeting in Kansas City, Mo., last April. Cain asked the president what he was supposed to say to the workers he would have to lay off because of the cost of the “employer mandate.” Clinton responded that there would be plenty of subsidies for small businessmen, but Cain persisted. “Quite honestly, your calculation is inaccurate,” he told the president. “In the competitive marketplace it simply doesn’t work that way.”
Here is the 32 minute press conference where, (UNBELIEVABLY), your presidential public servant exits to attend the White House Christmas party and leaves, (what can only be assumed as the real president), Bill Clinton large and in charge to answer questions.
Yes, I do believe the world is now figuring out (without a shadow of doubt) what we have known since wayyyyyyyyyyyyyy before the presidential election of 2008; Barack Hussein Obama is a poseur. We FRAKKIN’ told you so!!!
“I’ve been keeping the first lady waiting for about a half an hour so I’m going to take off, but you are in good hands.” – Barry Soetoro, 11:00.
My question? While watching this, how many of you feel like you are sitting at a table in a restaurant and your server just handed you off to another waiter in order to take their break?
I wonder what ‘Iamadinnerjacket’ over in Iran thinks about two American ‘presidents’ cow-towing to a first lady over a party?
According to Politico.com, former president Bill Clinton brokered a deal requesting that Rep. Meeks drop out of the Florida Senate race in order to allow progressive Charlie Crist (R, I, P) an open pathway to winning that senate seat against Marco Rubio. What won’t the progressives do to get one of their own inside the beltway? Since when does a former president who happens to be a democrat try to get another democrat to quit a race in order for a republican turned independent to win a seat? Open your eyes America; now you will understand why a DeMint/Paul leadership team is so important. If we are going to have republican control in the House and Senate, can we at least have somebody that upholds the Constitution?
Bill Clinton sought to persuade Rep. Kendrick Meek to drop out of the race for Senate during a trip to Florida last week — and nearly succeeded.
Meek agreed — twice — to drop out and endorse Gov. Charlie Crist’s independent bid in a last-ditch effort to stop Marco Rubio, the Republican nominee who stands on the cusp of national stardom.
What makes this all very interesting is a comment I just heard from Shep Smith speaking with Carl Cameron on FoxNews about Obama taking a page out of Bill Clinton’s playbook after Newt Gingrich and the republicans regained control of the house in 1994. The close working relationship that Clinton and Gingrich built under the banner of bipartisanship belays the actual common purpose of pushing global governance that these two progressives both envisioned.
How’s that title grab ya kids? Yes, ladies and gentlemen; that is an actual quote from Howard Dean himself sending a welcoming message to the Party of European Socialists at their congress in December, 2009. According to Howie, the American progressives and EU progressives have been working together for a long time. (My sincerest apologies for missing this a year ago.)
Any more doubts that the Democrats have become the American Progressive Socialist Party, or the future that the Democrats want where we have to follow the rules laid down by unelected officials on the other side of the world?
The cooperation between our parties has intensified significantly in the past two and a half years with regular contact at congress, senate, party and foundation levels. Efforts have been remarkable from both sides. The attendance of President Clinton and myself at the Global Progressive Forum World Conference in Brussels in 2009, I think is eloquent and proves this point very well. Many common initiatives have been launched. There’s been consistent work on the issue of the financial crisis, private equity and hedge funds with strong coordination between EU and US progressives. – Howard Dean, address to PES Congress, December 2009.
I just learned something rather interesting this morning when Speaker Education started following me on Twitter. The Speaker of the House of Representatives DOES NOT (Constitutionally) need to be a member of the elected body, though they always have been. (Ah, so many little details that we do not know about…)
The Speaker Education Project believes that Congress can bridge its divide by selecting a strong, non-partisan individual from outside of Washington’s political arena as its next leader. This type of transformation must begin at the local level, through engaged citizens actively questioning candidates about their stance on this critical issue. You have the power to help educate voters about the race for Speaker of the House, and have an impact on the choices the candidates in your district make by simply getting involved.
Article I, Section 2 of the Constitution states: “The House of Representatives shall chuse their Speaker and other Officers.” The Speaker is elected by roll call vote when each new House first convenes. Customarily, the conference of each major party nominates a candidate whose name is placed in nomination. Although the Constitution does not require the Speaker to be a member of the House, all Speakers have been members. Members normally vote for the candidate of their own party conference, but could vote for any individual, whether nominated or not. To be elected, a candidate must receive an absolute majority of votes cast, which may be less than a majority of full membership of the House, because of absentees of Members voting “present.” If no candidate receives the requisite majority, the roll call is repeated until a Speaker is elected.
Which, of course, got me thinking….
I do believe that somebody who actually embodies the Tea Party’s core beliefs of Ending The Fed (and stopping control of government by the big banks), Reducing The Size of Government, Repealing all of the ridiculous laws that have been put in place over the last 100 years or so, so and and so forth (I laid out my platform 3 weeks ago) should actually be installed as the next Speaker of the House. It would definitely take the agenda away from the mealy-mouthed, pansy, Republican leadership that wants to compromise with the very traitors that are destroying our republic at break-neck speed.
If there is one article that you should read in its entirety today, this would be the one.
An excerpt from The Economic Collapse. Make sure you hit the link and read it. Then consider the progressives in our government for the last 120 years (Dems and Repubs) steering this country off the cliff. Think about Clinton and Gingrich, NAFTA, and Americans fueling China’s economic growth and then tell me that the globalists aren’t trying to collapse our economy. NOBODY is this stupid.
The U.S. economy is being slowly but surely destroyed and many Americans have no idea that it is happening. That is at least partially due to the fact that most financial news is entirely focused on the short-term. Whenever a key economic statistic goes up the financial markets surge and analysts rejoice. Whenever a key economic statistic goes down the financial markets decline and analysts speak of the potential for a “double-dip” recession. You could literally get whiplash as you watch the financial ping pong ball bounce back and forth between good news and bad news. But focusing on short-term statistics is not the correct way to analyze the U.S. economy. It is the long-term trends that reveal the truth. The reality is that there are certain underlying foundational problems that are destroying the U.S. economy a little bit more every single day.
11 of those foundational problems are discussed below. They are undeniable and they are constantly getting worse. If they are not corrected (and there is no indication that they will be) they will destroy not only our economy but also our entire way of life. The sad truth is that it would be hard to understate just how desperate the situation is for the U.S. economy.
Sean Hannity was interviewing Dick Morris yesterday, 4.19.2010, when he dropped a bombshell about former Pres. Clinton, Janet Reno, and Waco. My question would be, why did Dick Morris have to wait so long to impart that little tidbit?
“…Clinton told me: “that I couldn’t not appoint Reno, because she would have turned on me over Waco. That’s the phrase he used.”
The average American may think this is great news if they were really paying attention and had all the facts. An SEC charge against Goldman Sachs is more deflect and distract.
TurboTax Timmie (and some say Hank Paulson) was in China begging for cash. Reports of Bill Clinton secretly heading over to Japan for cash, Barack Obama bowing to the chinese a couple weeks after a secret trip to Afghanistan(and God knows where else), and then this little story from MarketTicker that you may have missed in the all the tea party bashing going on the last two weeks.
No, not just Greece – all of Europe. Without Congressional authorization or notice, of course.
Hattip to a nice emailer….
Or if you prefer it on a one-year time scale…
That nice little vertical line is a gain of $421.8 billion dollars of outstanding loans and leases in one week’s time.
WHERE THE HELL DID THAT MONEY GO AND WHAT COLLATERAL WAS TAKEN AGAINST A FOUR HUNDRED BILLION DOLLAR INCREASE IN OUTSTANDING LOANS?
You won’t find anything like that in the records – because it’s never happened before. That’s beyond unprecedented, it’s ridiculous, and assuming it’s also accurate, someone has some ‘splaining to do on what clearly appears to be some sort of back-door game being run.
Update: It has been suggested that this may be related to the FASB changes and securitized loans coming back on the balance sheet. If so, where’s the alleged memorandum items on the other side and the footnote on FRED? The latter is missing, but the necessary data on FRED to confirm that is not yet updated.
Nonetheless, if this is the case, it’s still bad (just not catastrophic) as this will directly hit capital ratios. Or, put another way, where’s the additional capital that “should” be there to support what is now on balance sheet and was previously off (never mind that it was crooked as hell to have it off in the first place!)
So next time you see something incredibly out of the ordinary (Goldman Sachs charged? AYFKM?), ask yourself, “what are they trying to hide?”
April 16, 2010 Goldman Didn’t See SEC Coming FBN’s Charlie Gasparino says sources inside Goldman Sachs say they didn’t see the SEC probe coming.
