Got Real Vision?

Got Real Vision?

Yet another sleepless night with 25 days to go before we know exactly how big the tsunami that is about to wash over the democrats is, or whether or not it is going to make any difference at all to the current state of affairs.

How many of you can relate?  Sleepless night after sleepless night worried about still not being able to find a job because you are too old and not one, but two, former industries have been completely collapsed by the progressives in Congress, the White House, and the Federal Reserve?  Worried about becoming homeless with a child that already has PTSD and wondering how that is going to affect their ability to cope.  Constantly worried about a family member becoming ill and not having any medical insurance.  Constantly worried about how to pay the bills and put enough food on the table to keep the family mentally and physically coherent.  Waiting and praying that there will actually be a collective sigh of relief when the Congress is flipped, and hoping that the Republicans don’t turn their ‘chance’ for redemption into one big cluster**** that drives us further into depression.

Is that resonating?

The GOP has put forward their ‘Pledge To America‘ that lacks creativity, bold reasoning, decisive measures, and for lack of a better word, vision. In their rush to sell themselves to moderates and indies, they have created a lukewarm beginning to the problems that face this country and have NOT embraced their ‘inner no’.

I have a better idea.  Want to hear vision?  My readers will let me know if I’m over the line on what I believe needs to be done.  Time to think outside the box when it comes to hitting the escape key on this system and re-inventing America once again.

Vision For America

  • CUT SPENDING!  Make earmarks illegal.  If a program does not fit inside the guidelines of the Constitution, it becomes mincemeat.  Considering the items that follow, there will be more than enough money for Americans to make sure those turtles have crossings, and whatever replaces the NEA (privately) will be able to make art happen.
  • Cut Spending – Abolish the private banking cartel known as the Federal Reserve System, cut up the credit card they provide to Congress, and stop paying interest on our money.  That is the most heinously idiotic damn thing I have ever heard.
  • Break the unholy alliance between the six biggest banks in the country and the federal government. Shut down the revolving door between Goldman Sachs and their brethren and the Treasury Department.
  • Cut Spending – Abolish the IRS whose entire existence revolves around siphoning off Americans’ wealth in order for the progressives to redistribute our wealth to the rest of the world, and to make sure the Federal Reserve Mafia gets their interest.  We would save $12.1 BILLION immediately, and give over 100,000 Americans a chance to make a living doing something they can take pride in.
  • Institute a fair or flat tax that is consumption based.  This would bring trillions of dollars in investment money back from the Caymans and other offshore banking areas, and it would tax the underground economy.
  • Repeal Obamacare and replace it with a free market solution that TAKES EMPLOYERS out of medical insurance completely.  How many of you feel like indentured servants having to take certain positions or stay at companies because they have you over a barrel with your benefits?  How many healthy Americans are being penalized with higher premiums because other members of the group policy haven’t taken care of themselves and are using benefits like water?  How many of us don’t even have benefits because we aren’t employed?
  • Repeal the Dodd/Frank financial reform FIASCO that gives even more control over Americans through banking institutions and their money, yet doesn’t address the biggest factor in the continuing housing collapse – GSEs Fannie and Freddie.  Fannie Mae has returned to its subprime lending terms on foreclosures, while we are still shelling out billions to keep Fannie and Freddie afloat.
  • Remove the federal government as the guarantor of last resort for credit cards (bank bailouts), student loans, mortgages, etc.  This IS NOT their job and never was.  Is it in the Constitution?  Nope!  Shitcan it.
  • Pass a Constitutional Amendment making presidential czars and federal government agency mandates illegal.  If the EPA wants to tell Americans that carbon dioxide is pollution, it has to be debated by elected officials.  If Cass Sunstein wants to ‘nudge‘ America, he is going to have to receive permission from us.
  • Take Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid away from Congress and the Treasury.  The lockbox for these government entitlement programs was a flat out lie and has never existed.  I am sure with minds like Steve Jobs, Steve Wynn, Donald Trump, and Hermain Cain, we can find a profitable, yet safe, retirement savings avenue for Americans to watch over their nest eggs.
  • Remove the United Nations from our country, literally and figuratively.  Rescind treaties under the guise of the United Nations; STOP sending Americans’ wealth to them; kick the IMF and World Bank out.  Deal with the fallout and then not only play by the rules, but write laws that protect America’s sovereignty.  It may be a global village (according to the Fabian Socialists) but without a leader, it will become even more chaotic.
  • Pass a Constitutional Amendment that forbids a central bank system from being established in America ever again, and remove the Treasury Department’s involvement with the Bank of International Settlements.
  • Stop using the power of the Executive Branch to strong-arm the world into compliance with what the global elites feel is in their best interest.  We don’t give a flying squirrel’s fluffy freakin’ tail what you want; you are wealthy enough already.  You aren’t going to be allowed to become yet wealthier by using shady underhanded schemes; i.e. Iraq and Afghanistan.  Thanks George and Dick.
  • Introduce and pass legislation that forbids think-tanks and NGOs from writing legislation; i.e. Apollo Alliance – Stimulus Bill or the Council on Foreign Relations.
  • Assign a Congressional task force to examine and recommend repeal of laws that have been passed in the last 150 years that are blatantly un-Constitutional, threaten liberty, privacy, and free enterprise.
  • Repeal the Patriot Act in it’s entirety.
  • STOP SPYING ON AMERICANS with cameras, illegal wiretapping, data mining protocols, etc.  Tighten the supervision of America’s intelligence community, and require them to share the data they do acquire.
  • Remove American military bases from islamic countries.  Stop providing the radical jihadists with another reason to attack America.
  • Introduce and pass legislation that forbids genetically modified organisms from being produced and require the multinational companies creating this organisms to clean up the pollution that they have introduced to the environment.  Are you listening Monsanto?
  • Introduce and pass legislation that forbids Big Pharma from creating viruses, patenting them, and patenting the genetic code of Earth’s lifeforms.
  • Introduce and pass legislation that forbids ‘Too Big To Fail’.
  • Introduce and pass legislation that requires term limits.
  • Introduce and pass legislation that makes lobbying illegal.
  • Pass a Constitutional Amendment protecting Americans’ right to bear arms – in perpetuity.
  • Pass a Constitutional Amendment that requires nominees to the United States Supreme Court to actually have judicial bench time.  Also require that the nominee in question not have been in the employ of the Executive or Legislative Branches, and show a history of interpreting law according to the Constitution and American Sovereignty.
  • Pass a Constitutional Amendment that emphatically states what a Natural Born Citizen is (born on American soil to two American citizens), and then require all candidates to comply with requirements proving they are natural born for the office they are seeking (if required).
  • Close the freakin’ border!  Understand that Mexican citizens are  ‘invading’ sovereign American soil and we will not tolerate it.  Locate and deport all illegal aliens as their prize for disrespecting our country and breaking our laws.

How’s that for a rant session?  Please feel free to add what you believe should be done to get our country back on the right track.

I’m going to try to sleep now…

US Dollar Headed In Wrong Direction

…tied inexorably to the direction of Chairman Zero’s transformational agenda.

109 Days to go!

July 9.2010

Central banks start to abandon the U.S. dollar

There’s mounting evidence that central bankers have little faith in the greenback these days. Can we blame them?

by Heidi N. Moore, contributor

There are those who would argue that the financial crisis was caused by over-enthusiastic worship of the Almighty Dollar. Call it brutal financial karma, but that church is looking pretty empty these days.

A new report from Morgan Stanley analyst Emma Lawson confirms what many had suspected: the dollar is firmly on its way to losing its status as the reserve currency of the world. We already knew that central banks have preferred gold to dollars, and that they’re even selling their gold for cash; now, according to Lawson’s data, it seems that those central banks prefer almost anything to dollars.

Lawson found that central banks have dropped their allocation to U.S. dollars by nearly a full percentage point to 57.3% from 58.1%, and calls this “unexpected given the global environment.” She adds, “over time we anticipate that reserve managers may reduce their holdings further.”

What is surprising is that the managers of those central banks aren’t buying traditional fall-backs like the euro, the British pound or the Japanese yen. Instead, she suggests they’re putting their faith in other dollars – the kind that come from Australia and Canada. The allocation to those currencies, which fall under “other” in the data, rose by a full percentage point to 8.5%, accounting almost exactly for the drop in the U.S. dollar allocation.

Just last week, America’s debt lept $166 billion in a single day. That one-day run-up is greater than the entire U.S. annual deficit in 2007. And Americans, the world’s consumers, continue much of the behavior that helped the U.S savings rate drop so low.

The other options that reserve managers seem to be taking are also not a surprise. Canada’s rude financial health – and robust banks – were bound to draw more attention. The Australian dollar is near a nine-month high because employment numbers there are strong.

Anybody remember seeing this on July 11th?

Secret gold swap has spooked the market

It takes a lot to spook the solid old gold market. But when it emerged last week that one or more banks had lent 380 tonnes of gold to the Bank of International Settlements in return for foreign currencies, there was widespread surprise and confusion.

The news that a mystery bank has just pawned the family jewels gave traders a jolt – nervous about the sudden transfer of almost 20pc of the world’s annual gold production and the possibility of a sell-off.

In a tiny footnote in its annual report, the bank disclosed its unusually large holding of gold, compared with nothing the year before. The disclosure was a large factor in the correction of the gold price this week, which fell below $1,200 for the first time in more than a month.

Meanwhile, economists and gold market-watchers were determined to hunt down which bank is short of cash – curious about who is using their stash of precious metal for what looks suspiciously like a secret bailout.

At first it looked like the BIS was swapping gold with a troubled central bank. After all, the institution is the central bankers’ bank and its purpose to conduct transactions with national monetary authorities.

Central banks in the troubled southern zone of Europe were considered the most likely perpetrators.

According to the World Gold Council, central banks in Greece, Spain and Portugal held 112.2, 281.6 and 382.5 tons of gold respectively in June – leading analysts to point fingers at Portugal, or a combination of the three.

But Edel Tully, an analyst from UBS, noted that eurozone central banks would be severely limited with what they could do with the influx of extra cash – unable to transfer it straight to governments or make use of the primary bond markets.

She then listed the only other potential monetary authorities with enough gold as the US, China, Switzerland, Japan, Russia, India and Taiwan – and the International Monetary Fund.

This led to musings that the counterparty was the IMF, making sense because the lender of last resort is historically prone to cash shortages and has been quietly selling off gold in the first half of the year.

Renowned gold expert Jim Sinclair adopted this explanation. The panic came when people mistook a lease for a swap, he argues. Far from being a big release of gold into the market, it is simply a commercial arrangement between the IMF and BIS with a favourable rate of interest paid for the foreign currency.

“Gold swaps are usually undertaken by monetary authorities,” he writes on his industry blog, MineSet. “The gold is exchanged for foreign exchange deposits with an agreement that the transaction be unwound at a future time at an agreed price.

“The IMF will pay interest on the foreign exchange received. Historically swaps occur when entities like the IMF have a need for foreign exchange, but do not wish to sell the gold. In this case, gold is a leveraging device for needed currency to meet requirements.

“The many reports that characterise the large IMF gold swap as a sale of gold into the markets do not understand the difference between a swap and a lease.”

However, the day after original reports about the swaps, BIS emailed a statement saying that the swaps had not been conducted with monetary authorities but purely with commercial banks. (emphasis mine)

This did nothing to quell the sense of mystery surrounding the deal or deals. It is almost inconceivable that a single commercial bank could have accumulated so much gold alone. And cynics have suggested that the whole affair still looks like a secretive European bailout that a single country wants to keep quiet.

In this case, one or more of the so-called bullion banks – which act as wholesale market-makers and include Goldman Sachs, Deutsche Bank, JP Morgan, HSBC, Barclays, UBS, Societe Generale, Mitsui and the Bank of Nova Scotia – would have agreed to act on behalf of a monetary authority. (Almost all of these banks received US dollars from the AIG  bailout)

This would add an extra layer of anonymity. “So the BIS swaps look like a tripartite transaction,” writes Adrian Douglas of the Gold Anti-Trust Association. “The commercial bank or banks made a swap with a central bank or banks and then the commercial bank or banks made a swap with the BIS.”

The Bilderberg Group Is Only The Face Of The Poisonous Web

There are many theories as to who the shadow players are that are driving the world’s inhabitants towards extinction in their all-knowing, “we have to get the population to the 500 million mark”, but I still consider the chase of the money trail to be the most advantageous to finding out who is doing what.

I just ran across this opinion piece in The Guardian and felt that it eloquently conveyed the message for those of you that still don’t understand or don’t care about the elites that gather to decide your destiny. For many that are just waking up to the globalists in our elected leadership, you must understand that the United Nations, the IMF, the World Bank, the Bank of International Settlements, WHO, the Federal Reserve, and the central banks throughout the world must be booted out of this country, and their insane One World Corporation philosophy has to be decimated.PERIOD.

The Bilderberg Group is just the most visible face of the poisonous web that has engulfed the world.

I want you to know, though, that the people who are crawling around on pine needles with long lenses, trying to identify delegates (and doing pretty well, by the way), the people who are being detained, searched, questioned, then heading out again into the hills, the people who are sitting late into the night at the campsite bar, talking about distracted populations and central banks, are not lunatics.

Bilderberg 2010: Why the protesters are your very best friends

The people who are being detained, searched and questioned are not playing some game. They are deadly serious, and they are worried to death

Ivan was alone on the roundabout. He had been left in charge of the banners while everyone else ate breakfast.

He slipped an empty bottle of red wine into a binliner and stretched. At his feet was a chalk-drawn pyramid showing the structure of society, the word “pueblo” at the bottom, and the tip pointing up the hill towards Bilderberg. It’s a short pyramid today, maybe half a heavily-armed mile from Rockefeller down to Ivan.

Ivan’s bed last night – is it had been the night before – was the scrub by the roadside. “It’s not so cold in my bag,” he said. “A lot of times I travel in the mountains – in the mountains, you can sleep anywhere.”

A lone Catalonian in green trousers, he clutched a leaflet and stood in the Sitges sun as, up the hill, billionaires and finance ministers ate kiwifruit patisseries.

The shame, the awful poignancy of Bilderberg, is that, for much of the time, there are more delegates up the hill than there are protesters at the foot of it.

On that point, there’s something I’d like you to do. I’d like you to extend a grateful thought, a prayer of thanks, an idle nod of acknowledgment – a something, an anything – towards Ivan and all the others who have come to Sitges to bear witness to Bilderberg 2010.

These people are on your side, they are fighting your corner. And if you don’t think it’s a corner that needs fighting, or if it’s a corner you think is being fought by the people up the hill … well, good luck to you.

I want you to know, though, that the people who are crawling around on pine needles with long lenses, trying to identify delegates (and doing pretty well, by the way), the people who are being detained, searched, questioned, then heading out again into the hills, the people who are sitting late into the night at the campsite bar, talking about distracted populations and central banks, are not lunatics.

They are your very best friends. They’re not feeble-minded or playing some kind of game. They are deadly serious, and they are worried to death.

These people look at the state of the world and they pack a rucksack and sleep at the side of a roundabout.

The head of the IMF (and Bilderberger), Dominique Strauss-Kahn, looks at the world and declares: “Crisis is an opportunity.” He sees the precarious global economy and floats the idea for “a new global currency issued by a global central bank”. (emphasis mine)

Now, if you think that’s a good idea – if you think yet more centralisation of debt (and interest payments), and more unelected financial control is a good thing – then good luck (what are you? The chairman of Barclays?)

We already have a world, says Daniel Estulin, the arch Bilderbotherer, “where unelected bodies like the IMF can tell sovereign nations like Greece what to do”.

Estulin is here in Sitges, wearing the fanciest trousers I’ve seen in a long time. He says the Bilderberg endgame is “one world company ltd”. And the board of directors is sitting half a mile away.

And they’re being watched. I can’t say from where – I don’t know where the guerilla camerafolk are out crawling today. And I can’t ring them, because they’ve turned their mobiles off and taken out the sim cards so they can’t be triangulated by the signal.

They’re out getting sunstroke on your behalf, on my behalf. I’ll publish some of their photos, and some of their spottings, tomorrow.

Later today, a bunch of Spanish activists are providing paella for everyone in a mountain restaurant. Some of us won’t make it. Some of us will be under arrest, or lying in a ditch holding our breath until the footsteps pass.

One last time: if you think what they’re doing is ridiculous, you’re wrong. It’s the fact they’re having to do it at all that’s absurd.

This morning, a policeman screeched up beside me as I went for a stroll and told me to take the recording device out of my pocket. I did. It was a bit of driftwood from the beach. Yesterday, I had my car searched (and was detained for 50 minutes while the Mossos d’Esquadra checked and rechecked my passport).

They asked me what was in the boot. I dug them out a T-shirt. The patrolman radioed the station and read out the slogan on the shirt in heavily accented English: “I went to Bilderberg 2010 and all I got was this lousy new world order.” His partner asked me why I was laughing. I couldn’t really explain.

BIlderberg is an absurdity. The secrecy is absurd. The lack of a relationship between the event and the mainstream media is absurd. Ivan standing alone by his roundabout bed is absurd. The paranoia of the participants is more than absurd – it’s pathetic.

This year, most of the delegates were whisked into the hotel through an underground entrance, dodging the lenses, like a bunch of James Bond baddies, like a dieter creeping downstairs at midnight to eat chocolate cake from the fridge.

But the good news is that not everyone has dodged the cameras (John Elkann, the heir to Fiat, was spotted by the German blog Schall und Rauch looking particularly dapper this year). And the even better news – the very best news – is that the press seems, finally, to have woken up to Bilderberg.

We have had camera crews from Spanish TV and Spanish newspapers both local and national (Javier from El Mundo is currently up a tree with a camera). French journalists, Portuguese documentary makers and al-Jazeera are picking up the story. Russia Today has sent a film crew.

We’ve had articles in the Independent and the Times, and on the Today programme on Radio 4. Daniel Estulin has been doing interview after interview. He’s getting quotes from inside the meeting. The veil of secrecy is looking decidedly tatty. It might be time to bin it.

And yet the veil of ignorance is still holding up pretty well. As Ivan says, handing me a leaflet from the Anwok collective, “it is difficult to talk about the Bilderberg agenda if people don’t even know about the group”.

I know what he means – I’ve spoken to countless news agencies and outlets in the last few weeks, and the most common response, from journalists, editors and commissioners, is: “I’m sorry, the Bilderberg what?”

But seriously, if you work on the foreign desk of a major news corporation and you’re at the “Bilderberg what?” level of political awareness, you need to think about getting a different job. Take a sabbatical. Take up carpentry, or read a book. It’s like calling yourself a porn star and not knowing the reverse cowgirl. “The reverse what…?”

Get with the programme. Shimmy up a pine tree. Take a leaflet. Resign. You’re not helping anyone.

The central bank is an institution of the most deadly hostility existing against the Principles and form of our Constitution. I am an Enemy to all banks discounting bills or notes for anything but Coin. If the American People allow private banks to control the issuance of their currency, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the People of all their Property until their Children will wake up homeless on the continent their Fathers conquered. – Thomas Jefferson
