Advance planning by Bush & Paulson…….Executive Order #13456

1 Comment

In January of this year, Bush signed Executive Order # 13456 allowing, permitting and encouraging the so-called [investment] in America by foreign agents, individuals and corporations.  Apparently trying to make sure he finished his father’s efforts to sell off the taxpayer funded and owned infrastructure to private interests, including foreigners, this EO makes clear the intent to divest America of all assets previously funded and paid for by US taxpayers, and the intention to offshore even more of our jobs and businesses to foreign investors. 

 

We are currently an estimated 10 to 70 TRILLION in debt as a nation.  As a country, we own less than 38% of all lands, and less than 42% of what were national assets. 

 

I have no doubt this EO was written with full knowledge of the planned collapse of our economy.  When reading through it, note the extensive powers already delegated to the Treasury Secretary…..many of which were promoted as new powers under the bailout package.

Executive Order 13456—Further

Amendment of Executive Order 11858

Concerning Foreign Investment in the

United States

 

 

 

Section 1. Amendment to Executive Order 11858. Executive Order 11858

of May 7, 1975, as amended, is further amended to read as follows:

 

‘‘FOREIGN INVESTMENT IN THE UNITED STATES

By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the

laws of the United States of America, including section 721 of the Defense

Production Act of 1950, as amended (50 U.S.C. App. 2170), and section

301 of title 3, United States Code, it is hereby ordered as follows:

 

Section 1. Policy. International investment in the United States promotes economic growth, productivity, competitiveness, and job creation. It is the policy of the United States to support unequivocally such investment, consistent with the protection of the national security. (end excerpt)

 

Note:  In what is nothing less than a paragraph containing outright lies, we know that investment in the United States actually means the buying up of home mortgages, public lands, bridges, roads and other infrastructure. 

 

International investment kills jobs and does not create anything but devastation.  Competitiveness is not even a consideration as international investment is a tool for eradicating competitiveness.  Productivity is a term used to disguise the slave labor wages and work conditions of poorer countries where the businesses are relocated.  Paying non-livable wages to people who are unbelievably poor but who are forced to take the only work that may be available allows the investors to reap profits by sheer volume.  That’s not an increase in actual productivity, only an increase of people forced into slavery.

 

Reading through this entire EO, we find that [national security] is exposed for the fraud that it is. 

 

(2nd excerpt)……………….

 

(a) The functions of the President under subsections (b)(1)(A) (relating to review and consideration after notification),

 

(b)(1)(D) (relating to unilateral initiation of review and consideration), and

(m)(3)(A) (relating to inclusion in annual report and designation) of the Act are assigned to the Secretary of the Treasury.

 

(b) The Secretary of the Treasury shall perform the function of issuance of regulations under section 721(h) of the Act. The Secretary shall consult the Committee with respect to such regulations prior to any notice and comment and prior to their issuance. (end 2nd excerpt)

 

Note:

In this section, in preparation for the planned economic collapse, Paulson is given extraordinary powers as S.O.T.    Preparing the way for the wholesale divesting of American assets, Paulson is given the power to begin the selling off of infrastructure, financial and otherwise.  This will be accomplished by allowing his office to establish the rules and regulations under which this selling off will occur once the planned economic collapse takes place. 

 

Having gotten ten months head start, and knowing what was ahead, allowed Paulson to begin negotiations far in advance. 

 

Also note, every effort is made to avoid congress, or congressional approval.  The president claims [unilateral] authority to review and consider these sales of assets. 

 

We must work to end all Executive Orders!  And to expunge all those from the past which are known to be unconstitutional.

Preparing the public for another election fraud

Leave a comment

I am not voting for either of the two major candidates, so which of them takes the White House makes no difference to me.  Either way, I think we’re sunk.  But, I can’t help but notice something peculiar.

McCain and Palin seem to just dig themselves in deeper with each day and the obvious rift between the two of them is unsettling.  If he isn’t flubbing what are supposed to be his “clincher” comments, he’s mocking and snearing, and most of the time seems on the verge of a complete breakdown.  My impression is, the man is not stable.  Palin, is just too dumb for words but shows a willingness to sell her soul to get ahead which makes her an ideal candidate for the neo-cons.   Other than the fringe religious groups, neither of these two are playing well to audiences anywhere at least not in the numbers they need to win.

After months of tortured campaining by McCain and Palin, and three debates in which McCain failed to exhibit much of anything but his outright contempt for Obama; after months of trailing Obama in almost every state……somehow….overnight….the polls shifted.  Some of them as much as 10 to 12 points.

And here the staged election results begin as predicted by so many others.

With more than half of the Republican base unwilling to vote a McCain/Palin ticket, one has to wonder how this sudden shift occured?  I don’t, in fact, believe it did. 

All the rancid and disgusting emails sent out over the net by the RNC, and those they had recruited to help proliferate what was nothing less than garbage, didn’t have the effect hoped for.  The slash and trash, swiftboat-style, smear and snear tactics just didn’t work as well as they did in 2000 when they were used against McCain by Bush.  They were less effective in 2004 when used against Kerry, and now, are more a symbol of the lack of integrity and character seeming to characterize the Republican party in general. 

Especially repugnant are those emails using religion, God, and patriotism as a guise for the contempt, hatred and bigotry of a segment of the population that finds itself no longer in control;  its methods of operation shunned by all but the most base among us. 

So what is happening?

In my humble opinion, what is left of the neo-con faction of what is left of the Republican party is calling in its markers.  We are being manipulated into thinking that somehow McCain has gained momentum (we all know he has lost momentum) and that the election is now a “toss-up” especially in those pivotal states that carry so many electoral votes.  IF the manipulation works, we won’t be surprised when an extraordinarily unpopular candidate, even within his own party, somehow eeks out enough electoral votes to steal yet another election from the American people.

To add some kind validation to this planned event, MSM is now routinely claiming that exit polling isn’t all that accurate…….never mentioning that it is exit polling that our government uses in foreign countries to determine the validity of the vote.  Exit polling has always reflected the final ballots…or it did until 2000 when Kerry was the exit poll winner and Bush somehow just “won” the election.

So get ready……McCain is going to be president by hook or by crook, and probably the latter.  And, you can expect an absolutely astounding difference in exit polling and election results. 

Voter caging, purging and disenfranchised voters will be the mark of the day as we see another presidential election stolen from the American people.  And if all those things fail, the Supreme Court is surely standing by to unconstitutionally stick its nose into another national election, and select the president for us.

Who’s in charge?

I was under the impression that Canada and Australia were sovereign countries.

I guess not.

This video shows the heads of both these states reading the same exact statement – word for word – supporting the invasion of Iraq.

Who wrote this thing?

Who distributed it?

Who compelled these obvious puppets to read it?

The Queen? The CIA? Who runs these people.

Note: Canada’s Harper was not yet Prime Minister when he made this speech selling out his country for god knows who – but he is now.

Bailout Loot distribution is kept secret! BRASSCHECK TV/video

Back to the market…

Remember the 750 billion that ex-Goldman Sachs CEO/ Us Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson said we needed to give to…Goldman Sachs and other banks to save the markets?

That worked well, didn’t it?

Where did the money go?

Hard to tell because parts of the minutes of the meetings set up to distribute the loot…I mean bail out funds…have been blacked out.

True story.

You couldn’t make this stuff up if you tried.

No one would believe it.

The “Dirty Little Secret” Of the US Bank Bailout

Leave a comment

 
By Barry Grey

Excerpts from the full article located at: http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article21116.htm

 

WSWS” — In an unusually frank article published in Saturday’s New York Times, the newspaper’s economic columnist, Joe Nocera, reveals what he calls “the dirty little secret of the banking industry”–namely, that “it has no intention of using the [government bailout] money to make new loans.” 

”27 October 2008 “

Early this month, he explains, “in a nearly unnoticed move,” Paulson, the former CEO of Goldman Sachs, put in place a new tax break worth billions of dollars that is designed to encourage bank mergers. It allows the acquiring bank to immediately deduct any losses on the books of the acquired bank.

Paulson and other Treasury officials have made public statements calling on the banks that receive public funds to use them to increase their lending activities. That, however, is for public consumption. The bailout program imposes no lending requirements on the banks in return for government cash.”

Tainted food alert! Melamine may be in US food supply

Leave a comment

http://www.brasschecktv.com/page/460.html

In China, ANYTHING made with Chinese-manufactured milk powder before September 14th was PULLED from their store shelves.

In the US, this garbage is still being sold!

Foods at risk: ANY food manufactured in China and potentially any food containing milk powder. US food manufacturers imported millions of pounds of milk powder from China before September 14th. The FDA continues to allow to be sold.

This includes chocolate, cookies, cakes, and even things like packaged macaroni and cheese.

Background

Mike Mozart is a product designer who also runs a video blog about new developments in the toy industry. His reviews are normally light, cheerful affairs and completely apolitical. If he appears distraught, it’s because he is. This is serious. Mozart has discovered that the US is the ONLY country that still permits potentially melamine-contaminated food on its shelves. Even China has removed these products from its stores.

That’s right. This poison that killed and injured thousands of people, mainly children, may be in US food. We’re the only country that hasn’t pulled it from its shelves.

Here’s what you need to know

1. Melamine was added to food products manufactured in China to simulate protein content. These food products were imported into the US by the ton.

2. Melamine itself is bad, but much worse – and not reported – is that melamine is an industrial product, not a food product and often comes contaminated with a wide range of dangerous industrial toxins.

There is no such thing as food grade melamine. None of it is suitable for food.

3. The widespread practice of adding melamine to powdered milk products has killed and seriously injured thousands of children in China.

Melamine injuries children by damaging their kidneys. There has already been a reported spike in kidney stones in American children.

Last year, when melamine was found in pet food sold in the US and traced to death in animals, it was headline news.

This news, potentially far more serious, is being censored.

4. The Chinese government knew this contaminated food was on the shelves killing children and said nothing so as not to put a damper on the “Olympic spirit.”

5. As much 20 MILLION POUNDS of food manufactured in China that contains milk powder was imported into the US this year. Also, it’s not clear how many US food manufacturers use milk powder manufactured in China in their products.

6. The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) refuses to test for melamine contamination – or it is has, refuses to make the results of these tests available to the public.

Further, the FDA refuses to force food manufacturers to remove the contaminated food from its shelves, something they are completely capable of doing.

7. Why is this being done?

Mozart theorizes: a) to prevent a scandal before the election and b) to avoid further deterioration of the US stock market.

Are these motivations plausible?

Long-time Brasscheck TV viewers know that the FDA has demonstrated over and over again throughout its history that it is a political agency designed to protect well connected law breakers and has next-to-zero interest in the public welfare.

AVOID all food products manufactured in China and any product that contains milk powder that does not disclose its source. (Egg powder is also being identified as a potential source of this contamination.)

The direct YouTube link for this video is:

Please share this information with friends, family members and colleagues so they can make an informed decision about what they eat.

Knowing the parties involved – China, the FDA, the Bush administration, the US news media, and corporate America – you can be sure that none of them can be trusted to look out for your welfare.

 


Why this is so diabolical


Here are the indisuputable facts of this case:

1. Chinese manufacturers are known to have added melamine to powdered milk products including baby food.

2. Melamine is not a permitted food additive in any country. It is an industrial product and is often contaminated with other toxins.

It damages the kidneys and is particularly dangerous, even fatal, to small children and infants.

3. Every other country on earth – including China – has removed all products made with Chinese-manufactured milk powder from their stores.

4. The FDA and the Bush Administration has made the US the only country on earth to have opted to leave these potentially tainted products on store shelves.

5. The FDA and the Bush administration knows that millions of pounds of Chinese-manufactured milk powder was imported into the US in the last twelve months.

6. It knows exactly what companies imported this material and the food manufacturers that used it know exactly what batches of their products this material is in.

7. The FDA and the Bush Administration further knows that:

a) injury and death associated with consumption of products containing melamine will not take place immediately (except perhaps in the case of infants) and

b) it will be practically impossible for sufferers of this tainted food to attribute their injuries to specific products since weeks, months or even years might pass between ingestion and symptoms.

Summary: By leaving these food products on store shelves, the FDA and the Bush Administration know exactly the risk of harm to US consumers and are hoping because of the nature of the poisoning that they will be able get away with it and thus avoid the political consequences of a recall.

US-Iraq “Security” Agreement Includes `Some Secret Provisions`

1 Comment

http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article21097.htm

 

By Press TV

October 26, 2008 “Press TV” — The controversial US-Iraq security agreement includes ‘some secret provisions’, which would flagrantly violate Iraq’s sovereignty.

Secret provisions have been incorporated in the so-called Status of Forces Agreement (SOFA), which would violate Iraq’s sovereignty in a more direct manner than the provisions disclosed by the Iraqi media, the Saudi daily Okaz reported on Sunday, citing “informed political sources”.

According to the report, although “the secret provisions” would have more adverse consequences for Iraq in terms of the country’s sovereignty and independence, a majority of Iraqi lawmakers have been kept entirely unaware of them.

Based on those provisions, the US would be granted the permission to build military bases, camps and prisons inside Iraq. The scope of the immunity from legal prosecution for the US forces–the most controversial provision of SOFA– would also be extended to include all US security, military and civilian firms as well as the US army’s contractors.

Under the terms of SOFA, Iraqi officials would be prohibited from meddling in operations carried out by US forces or limiting their authority. The US would also be allowed to attack any country, which “represents a security threat to Iraq” from the country’s soil.

After signing the deal, Baghdad would be obliged to ask for Washington’s approval before concluding any regional or international agreements with third countries.

According to the Okaz report, SOFA would bring the Iraqi key ministries of defense and interior under US control for 10 years to facilitate “the training of the Iraqi forces.”

The Saudi newspaper also claimed that under the secret provisions, no timetable would be set for the withdrawal of US troops form Iraq and any pull-out would depend on several conditions.

The conditions for any US withdrawal include the readiness of Iraqi forces, the success in fighting terrorism, the removal of “the neighboring countries’ security threats”, national reconciliation and a consensus among all Iraqi political groups on the issue. Washington would be entitled to stay in Iraq, if even one of those conditions were not fulfilled.

Based on those SOFA provisions which have made public, the US forces must leave the war-torn country by early 2011 without any preconditions.

The report also ruled out the possibility that the US and Iraq would reach an agreement before the term of US President George W. Bush in office ends.

The failure to sign the deal, according to the daily, should be considered as a setback for the Bush administration which is seeking to play the card of SOFA to strengthen the position of the Republican Party before the upcoming US presidential elections.

President Bush on “stealing the people’s money’

1 Comment

President George Bush met with President Fernando Lugo of Paraguay at the White House today, October 27, 2008. The meeting was televised on CSPAN and was nothing short of boring and unimportant right up until Bush made a comment that almost made me choke.  In the middle of stuttering and stammering, in the middle of trying to sound as if he was remotely aware of anything coming out of his mouth, Mr. Bush actually said….

 

quote:

“There is nothing more discouraging than for a government of the people to steal their money”. George W. Bush 10-27-08 (end quote)

 

Say what???  He didn’t really say that, did he?  Yes he did!

 

How could this comment come out of the mouth of this man after the biggest theft of taxpayer’s funds ever to have occurred in the history of the United States in the form of the bailout of Wall Street crooks and thieves?

 

Discouraging?  I don’t think that term quite describes what the everyday American is feeling right at this moment.  Anger, immense frustration, thoroughly betrayed, disenfranchised, incredulous and for many of us…..dead broke might be better descriptions.

 

And stealing is exactly what Bush & Co. did.   Our congress voted against the massive public opposition to the bailout, then proceeded to hand Wall Street criminals what does amount to a blank check.  It wasn’t the blank check Bush had demanded, but close enough.

 

While corrupt CEO’s continue to walk away with more than 70 billion in stolen taxpayer funds, and AIG rips through 75 billion of the original 85 billion they were given before the big crisis, the middle class loses its retirement investments, have their homes foreclosed, lose their health insurance, lose their jobs, can’t get extended unemployment benefits, and are discounted totally by their elected representatives and senators.

 

Discouraged?  How about monumentally pissed off?  How about;   I can’t wait for you and your crooked administration to get out of town?  How about this….I hope every incumbent is voted out of office and that the new congress has enough sense and conscience to cut any retirement benefits payments, and health care payments, and benefits whatsoever you decided you were somehow entitled to while in office. 

 

Don’t let the door hit ya on the way out…..

Put an end to No Child Left Behind

1 Comment

In every instance where the federal government steps in and takes control of any issue, the costs skyrocket, efficiency nosedives, and in the end what we realize is….. what we think should be the focus, and what the true focus is, are two entirely different things. 

Never has this been more evident than with the miserable program known as [No Child Left Behind.] 

 

And didn’t that name just tug at your heartstrings?  Didn’t it evoke visions of every child in America having a chance at a real and useful education?  Didn’t you believe this program was going to raise the education level of every student across the board and help to make the country the standard for education in every area?  Couldn’t you just slap yourself for being so gullible?

 

Take a look at the chart below taken from:

http://www.all4ed.org/federal_policy/budget

 

 

In case you are not able to read the totals clearly, the budgeted amount the federal government is allocating to the [No Child Left Behind] program for 2009 is staggering; $59.21 BILLION. 

 

Although NCLB is touted as the way to create better schools, increase all levels of education and to increase the comparative education of our students in the world, the fact is, NCLB exists to do none of these things.  The intent of NCLB is to eradicate public education to facilitate the privatizing of education.  Once this is accomplished, quality education will be provided only to those who qualify to pay via vouchers provided courtesy of taxpayers.     

 

Wherever the potential for making a buck appears, there you will find the privatizer’s hard at work manipulating information and recreating it to benefit their objectives.  In this case, students are intentionally limited in their endeavors and instead of actually learning, are instead subjected to rote memorization of selected and limited information.  This of course, limits their overall education and ends with these students entering the workforce as low-level, low-wage employees.  But, those seeking to privatize what is, potentially the biggest taxpayer bankrolling of private interests see this as a boon to their end objectives.

 

As a means of labeling a school [needs improvement] which is indicative of nothing, special ed students and those who are learning English as a second or third language are required to be tested and those test scores are included in the school rating.  If there are less than 20 English learners, their scores are not counted. 

 

But who was the idiot that determined the test scores of impaired and challenged children should be included in the overall test scores of a school?  This is nothing more than a means to reduce the overall educational standing of the school allowing more federal interference and intrusion.

 

What is a highly qualified teacher….and what standards?

 

Under NCLB, teachers with college degrees, many of them with masters degrees are deemed [not highly qualified] and are forced to take additional college classes in order to keep their jobs.  No one seems to be quite clear on what the criteria is for this coercion and this labeling of [not highly qualified]. 

 

At the same time, any individual can become a teacher and be labeled [highly qualified] simply by demonstrating some kind of expertise in any given subject and they don’t even need a college education or degree to do so.  This seems to be limited to those expressing a neo-conservative mind-set, a willingness to promote global rather than sovereign citizenship, and those who think religion should be taught in public schools.

 

The objective of NCLB was never to better educate our children.  It was the latest attempt to de-educate them, limit them in their future prospects for employment and wages and to promote a global rather than sovereign view of the world.  Thanks to NCLB we are raising successive generations of students who lack any real education and who have been incrementally subjected to globalism. 

 

Although there are billions and billions allocated and authorized for this disgusting program, the fact is the federal government will actually pay only a fraction of the money allocated to the states.  Any state can opt out of NCLB and no state is forced to comply with an unfunded mandate, regardless.

 

Every state should opt out and end the program entirely.  The fact is, the funding allocated is your tax dollars that you paid.  Keeping those funds in state and managing educational needs would be far more efficient and effective without federal interference.  At the very least, we could begin actually teaching our children again, rather than subjecting them to memorization of limited information and setting them up for future failures.

ECONOMIC COLLAPSE OF 2008 AN INSIDE JOB

1 Comment

http://www.rumormillnews.com/cgi-bin/archive.cgi?noframes;read=118989

PROTOCOLS FOR ECONOMIC COLLAPSE IN AMERICA
by
Al Martin

2-23-8 (note the date of this article)

And this is how the U.S. Treasury would handle an economic collapse.  It’s called the 6900 series of protocols. It would start with

·         Declaring a force majeure, which would immediately be interpreted by the marketplaces as a de facto repudiation of debt.

·         Then the SEC and the various regulatory exchanges would anticipate the market’s decline, hour by hour — when Japan’s markets opened the next day,

·         What would happen when the European markets, and all the inter- linkages of the global markets.

·         On the second day, US Special Forces would be dropped in by parachute in the cities where the twelve Federal Reserve district banks are located.

The origin of these protocols comes from the Department of Defense. This is contingency planning for a variety of post-collapse scenarios. Those scenarios would include,  obviously,

·         military collapse, World War III, in other words, and its aftermath.

·         What we’re talking about now is aftermath — how the aftermath would be handled.

One does not necessarily know how the events would transpire that would cause the collapse, whether it’s military collapse or economic collapse. In World War III, it would become obvious — when the mushroom cloud started to appear over cities.

Economic collapse scenarios were always premised on the basis of a US declaration of force majeure on debt service. It’s a very extensive scenario. The scenarios are all together, i.e., military, economic, political and social complete destabilization leading to collapse.

Then they break down individual scenarios. In the economic collapse scenario, the starting point would be the United States Treasury declaring a force majeure on debt service, which is de facto repudiation, and that’s how it would be interpreted by the world’s capital marketplaces. Then the scenario goes on from there.

The US Treasury would obviously declare a force majeure sometime after the European markets had settled down. In other words, they had gone out on the day, which means 11:38 a.m. EDT, our time. They’d wait until the European markets closed, and the US markets had been open for a couple of hours. That’s when they’d determine how to begin the process of unwinding or controlling the collapse to the best extent possible, mainly because they know that the greatest hedge pressure would be people seeking to use other markets to hedge their long exposure in the United States and that the US would be the biggest seller in all the rest of the world’s markets. Therefore you would want to declare the force majeure when the rest of the world’s markets closed.

The declaration of force majeure would be precipitated by the declaration that the United States is no longer able to service its debt. That’s pretty simple. Who makes that decision? The Treasury Department. The President does not make that decision. The Secretary of the Treasury does. He has that authority. You might ask — wouldn’t he have his arm twisted not to do that?

The answer is that if there isn’t any money left to service the debt, it doesn’t make any difference what the current regime might want to do.

The day of reckoning is now coming. What has happened in the interim, from 2001 to present, is dynamic, global economic deterioration. The economic deterioration visited upon the United States by Bushonomics is not a localized event.  It is, in fact, global. We have a planet now that is sinking into a sea of red ink.

The United States is consuming 80% of the planet’s savings rate to finance its debt. The central banks of Germany, Japan and Saudi Arabia are no longer the powerhouses they used to be. Their reserves have now been substantially depleted. They can, therefore, no longer hide the fact that they own a certain number, likely in the trillions of dollars, of U.S. Treasury debt that isn’t being serviced, because they can’t hide it through bookkeeping tricks anymore because their reserves are so depleted.

Therefore somebody has covertly been putting demands on the Bush- Cheney regime for payment. Why do you think 2900 metric tons of gold is depleted from U.S. inventory since March of `01?

Why do you think that $2 billion in currency seized from Iraq last May is now unaccounted for?

Someone is putting demands on the Bush-Cheney regime. Someone is saying to the Bushonian Cabal that — You’ve got to start servicing this debt because we, foreign central banks, are in nations – European and Asian – whose reserves are now nearly exhausted.

Who could be putting that kind of pressure on them?

It has to be coming from whoever is organizing this thing at the very top, which I would tend to think has got to be most likely a cabal of people that would involve Henry Kissinger, James Baker, George Schultz, possibly William Simon. It would be somebody at the very top that is familiar with how to do this. It would have to be someone
familiar with finances.

So would this be one faction of a cabal blackmailing or forcing another faction? No, it’s not really blackmailing. It’s being done out of desperation. The German, Japanese and Saudi central banks are saying to the Bushonian cabal, You’ve got to start servicing this debt because we don’t have the reserves to cover you anymore. We can no longer make it appear that the debt is being serviced because our own reserves are so substantively depleted. Therefore you must begin to cover this debt. If you don’t, then, at some point, we will have to publicly admit in order to save our own necks — that we were the end
buyers of a lot of stealth debt, a lot of debt that your Treasury issued illegally and has never serviced. That would then expose the whole cabal.

The Kissinger-Baker faction are at the top of how this was done on the economic side of the equation. They were not the original insiders so much, but the managers of the conspiracy from the U.S. Treasury, to wit, the U.S. Treasury and Federal Reserve role-play the part.

Take Henry Kissinger. It may not have occurred to anyone why in the last 3 years Henry Kissinger has been back in Washington more than he has in the last 30 years. And why are all these quiet meetings in Washington with alleged senior Bush-Cheney regime officials, as foreign news services endlessly put it. It’s because Kissinger is the point man. He’s the one that is telling them the disposition of other foreign central banks.

Kissinger would probably also be involved in transfer or hypothecation of any assets from the cabal. In other words, they’re being stolen from the American people by the Bush-Cheney regime and the Bushonian Cabal, and they are being used to hypothecate, transfer, service, or otherwise carry this debt held by certain foreign central banks.

The process of unraveling has already begun because of ever-spiraling Bushonian budget deficits. The Bush-Cheney regime, even in its overt policies (now they’re overt political, economic, social and military policies) is generating $600-billion-plus deficit per year, which is consuming 80% of the planet’s net savings rate.

It doesn’t have the slack. In other words, it can’t refinance stealth debt by issuing more stealth debt anymore. Nor can they bleed money out of the system like they could in the 1980s by hiding it when the overt policies of the Bush-Cheney regime are already producing a budget deficit of 6% of Gross Domestic Product. There is no other mechanism that they could use anymore to hide expansion of debt that could be used to service said stealth debt, and they are, frankly, running out of assets that they can steal from the American people.

So the proverbial day of reckoning is coming. The Bush-Cheney regime (and I give them credit for this) are telling the American people what’s coming, knowing the American people are too stupid to understand. They are telling the American people about the re-
institution of the Gold Confiscation Act and the sudden scrapping of the Treasury’s emergency post-collapse gold note scheme to maintain domestic liquidity.

David Walker, US Comptroller General and chief of the GAO has said that should the Bush-Cheney regime be re-ensconced into power and, hence, the scourge of Bushonomics persist, that the United States could no longer service its debt beyond 2009. They’re not hiding it from anybody anymore. They are telling you what’s happening. Now, what does that mean?

The key is in what Walker is saying when he says the debt can no longer be serviced. I’ve been asked this on the radio shows. People have noticed what Walker said because he’s out in the news more often than he used to be. It’s unusual for the Comptroller
General of the United States, which is a rather arcane position, to be out in the news so much.

Who ran the government on 9/11? BRASSCHECK TV/video

1 Comment

The man in charge during 9/11? Clearly it wasn’t George Bush.

 

He was too busy reading a story book to school children, and then flying aimlessly from one part of the country to another.

 

Back in Washington DC, the contingency government was operating smoothly and according to plan.

 

Whose plan?

The body language says it all

By the turn of the last century, the Rockefeller family and its associates had a virtual monopoly over the oil and mineral resources of the world.

Not much has changed since.

Over the years, the group has created and/or taken control of a dizzying array of politicians, news media, academic institutions, think tanks and foundations to further its aims.

No one gets to be a serious candidate for President of the United States without being under their control and domination and all White Houses pick Rockefeller employees for its top slots.

Nixon had Henry Kissinger (a Rockefeller agent), Reagan had Bush Sr, and Bush Jr. has Dick Cheney. And on it goes.

Two noteworthy quotes from this video:

* “The (Rockefeller) family has a long history of strengthening the bonds of friendship throughout the Americas.”

In fact, the Rockefellers are despised by the people of Latin America.

There’s not a Latin American dictator that the family did not have friendly relations with.

If a dictator didn’t exist, the family provided one. Under the direction of Rockefeller employee Henry Kissinger, the US initiated and then supported a reign of terror in Chile after organizing the violent overthrow of its democratically elected president.

* “We are able to go about our business here in the Americas and throughout the world with confidence and security because we know the strength of this government stands behind us.”

Our business? What business exactly is that? And why should the strength of this or any government stand behind a private commercial enterprise?

To the public and the press, Cheney is a sneering, snarling mad dog.

In front of Rockefeller, he’s groveling and obsequious and Rockefeller rewards him accordingly with a pat on the head: “Good boy!”

Here’s the real power in the US. Just look at the body language. It could not be any plainer.

The miltarization of our domestic police forces.  If you can watch this 6 minute video and not come away sick at your stomach and wondering just what the government has planned for us.

How about long range accoustic devices for crowd control compliance and “influencing” behavior.

And:  How ’bout those “active denial systems” which heat your core temp just like a microwave?

How does a high school drug raid, that produced no drugs, by police in swat gear sound to you?

Take a look.

Hijacking Humanity

Are you a corporate body and legal name registered as chattel property with the corporation you reside in? What the heck does that even mean?

After connecting with many people from around the world during 5 years of intense research, Paul Verge charts his journey of startling discoveries through the many systems that govern our lives in North America, where hidden levers are pulled, backs are scratched in the shadows and the seemingly unconnected gears of everyday powerbrokers combine into a massive jigsaw puzzle, revealing themselves to be part of the juggernaut machinery pushing towards a consolidation of World Power.

A 2 Disc DVD set running over 3 hours in length, “Hijacking Humanity“, the first film in the series “The Cause of Effect” reveals a plethora of startling information.

DOW sues Canadian government using Chapter 11 NAFTA rules

Leave a comment

If you aren’t aware of Chapter 11 rules in NAFTA:  This chapter allows private investors and corporations to sue any of the three governments if environmental or community protections prohibit them from making a profit they believe they are entitled too.  Should they win their suit, either the profit making venture goes forward, OR, the government has to pay them the profit they claim they are being cheated out of.  There is NO CAP on what they can claim.   These suits are not brought before a federal court, but rather, are handled secretly and are not made public.

Thanks Anne, for sending this on to the Deputy Minister, Marie-Lucie Morin.

—————–

 

Dear Deputy Minister Marie-Lucie Morin,

 

 

As per appended G&M report Oct 22, Dow has filed notice of intent to seek

compensation under NAFTA Chapter 11 for money lost because of pesticide

bylaws.  Chemtura, too.

 

Over my dead body.

 

As per appended G&M report (yesterday), there is a connection between brain

development and exposure to some chemicals.  In addition to what the

Europeans know (the G&M article), in North America the research of Drs.

Elizabeth Guillette (Florida State), Patricia Moulton (University of North

Dakota), a professor at the University of Oregon, etc. etc. etc. ALL show

the same thing.

 

 

You will know the MMT/NAFTA story.  Under a Chapter 11 challenge, the

Canadian Government bowed to Ethyl Corporation, paid them $20 million and

backed out of the ban on MMT (a neurotoxin), used to boost the octane rating

of unleaded gas. 

 

This, IN SPITE OF THE FACT that it has been banned in the U.S. since 1977

and in Europe.

 

 

I am fed up with being nice: there will be hell to pay if you give ONE INCH

to Dow Agro Sciences (Dow Chemical), or to Chemtura. 

 

I am so fed up that we have to continue fighting and fighting the Government

because of its failure to protect the public interest, and its subservience

to corporate interests. 

 

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Sandra Finley

The hysterics of global warming….BRASSCHECK TV/video

Leave a comment

Don’t be too hasty

I know this one is going to get some people’s knickers in a knot.

In fact, it already has.

But let’s look at some facts:

1. Automobile emissions are noxious

2. Most industrial output it FAR far more toxic than it needs to be.

So what are the UN and the rest of the world’s top-down opinion leaders focusing on?

A vague and scientifically suspect threat called “global warming.”

If you dare question the science of human-caused global warming, you’re shouted down.

Is the world getting warmer?

Yes.

Has it ever been this warm before?

Yes, MUCH warmer and long before “carbon emissions.”

Should we clean up industrial pollution?

Of course, but notice how the “global warming” hysterics conveniently let polluters off the hook.

We know EXACTLY who is putting mercury and other dangerous toxins in our air, soil and food. We don’t have to guess. We know exactly what companies are doing it and where their plants are located.

So what do we do?

We hold hands, sing Kumbaya, and make vague noises about the need to be “more green.”

This is a swindle if ever I saw one and looking at the smarmy self-righteous Al Gore being showered with Nobel Prizes and Oscars is practically all the proof I need that something is rotten in Denmark (and Greenland.)

But there is far, far more proof than that.

The real unfunded liability…..the federal government.

5 Comments

 

Most people are not aware that when the budget from the federal government is made public, what they are seeing is the [simplified budget]; otherwise known as the [cash] budget.  There are actually two budgets prepared: 

 

  • The simplified budget is a trimmed up version of the budget using only selected sources of income, and selected liabilities and is presented publicly, giving a false picture of the financial state of our country. 

Using the simplified budget causes a massive disparity in the actual representation of income into the treasury and conversely, a gross misrepresentation of liabilities.  The result is a skewed picture of the income vs. debt and expenditures and should never be used as the example for the actual state of affairs.  It is presented to the public with the intent of manipulating public opinion and creating false financial pictures.

 

The [unified budget] includes all income from all sources, and all debts of any kind, including:

 

  • the hidden costs of interest payments to the federal reserve,

(Absolutely every dime paid in individual taxes annually, goes to pay the service debt to the Federal Reserve, and cannot pay it in full)

  • the costs of the wars,
  • the service debt on all the money borrowed from other countries and private industries such as mega insurance companies.
  • Monies lost or disappeared through the use of undocumented entries into the books of various agencies, costing the country trillions each year.

[11 out of 15 federal agencies cannot balance their books without using unsupported documentation entries…meaning stuff they made up for which there is no evidence]

 

  • The cost of illegal alien residents paid by the federal government.
  • The cost of the FBI, CIA, and eleven other spy agencies for daily operations, surveillance of the population,
  • Special operations by the military which may violate international laws and treaties.

        (No one…is allowed to know how much money Black Ops gets, or what is done with it, except for a  few high level officials)

  • The cost of past military operations we are still paying for.
  • The two trillion + taken from Social Security and replaced with I.O.U.’s that are absolutely worthless but now listed as an [unfunded liability].

The unified budget also includes the expenses related to the day to day operation of the federal government including the bloated White House staff which is costing us millions each year. [1]   We are also paying for a fleet of private jets, maintenance and crews to fly the royalty in Washington DC around the country.  We are paying for limo service, personal services of all kinds, and overstaffing of personnel whose only function is to wait hand and foot on the politicians.

 

The unified budget includes all the surpluses from Social Security and any other program or agency which has operated efficiently enough to generate a surplus.  Also, unused authorized funds, taxes, fines, fees, sales of military equipment to countries said to be our enemies.

 

When presented with the [simplified budget] it appears as though social programs are eating away nearly 30% of the annual budget.  This slight of hand presentation is intentional.  It helps keep the socialism/communism fires stoked, and provides those who subscribe to this fear mongering with what they believe is a valid argument.

 

The site listed below has the actual chart prepared by the Congressional Budget Office for 2008 using the simplified cash budget, then goes on to show the true cost of all sectors of spending by the Federal government.

Going here, you’ll note in the chart Medicaid is lumped in with Medicare, inflating the actual costs of Medicare drastically.  [Other mandatory] is not explained, so we have no idea what that really is but likely includes totally non-related expenditures that needed to be attached somewhere.

http://www.warresisters.org/pages/piechart.htm [2]

Total Outlays (Federal Funds): $2,650 billion
MILITARY: 54% and $1,449 billion
NON-MILITARY: 46% and $1,210 billion

The fact is, the true unfunded liability is our federal government.  Another fact is, we cannot possibly produce enough taxable income to provide the funds necessary to even make a small dent in the snowballing debt generated by an out of control government. 

Government as we now know it is a huge and growing liability, financially a burden to all of us.  Money is spent that we don’t have and in amounts so vast and incomprehensible to the ordinary person, it numbs the mind. 

The week before the theft of taxpayer’s funds to bailout the elite and corrupt, congress approved another 600 billion in funding for the wars.  600 billion?  For wars we didn’t need to fight?  Then added what will amount to at least 2 trillion over the next five years to bailout Wall Street.  This in addition to an already admitted 10 trillion + in debt, although many claim it is most likely more than 70 trillion in actual debt. 

To top it off, earlier this year congress voted itself another raise.  This while more than 1.4 million of us lost our homes, our jobs, our health care; everything we had.  This while another 460,000 lost their jobs just in September alone. 

The only true unfunded liability we face is the federal government.

An important descriptor of the action on Wall Street is the Volume of Shares Traded.  Today that number was 335,678,907.

 

For traders with household balances less than $1,000,000, Charles Schwab charges $12.95 for the first 1,000 shares of each executed online equity trade.

 

If Charles Schwab had handled every trade today (In your dreams, Chuck), the total transaction fees would have totaled somewhere in the neighborhood of $4,347,042.

 

Obviously, not everyone involved in the Wall Street meltdown is on the road to the poorhouse.

Preparing the Cover Story for the Theft of the Election

October 23, 2008

 

Two weeks to go and the machine is starting to prepare the narrative for how it is possible that John McCain won the 2008 Presidential election. With every poll showing an Obama lead of anywhere from 10-14 points for the past few weeks, suddenly today the Associated Press announced a new poll that shows the race in a dead heat. Nonsense. With the backdrop of the Kennedy-Palast reporting on how the GOP has already started the systematic theft of the election this poll today is just the coverage they need to pretend that the results of a McCain victory will be legitimate. If McCain does indeed go on to steal the election, no doubt his supporters will point to this bogus poll to refute the other polls.

 

The talking points have been as inane as the alleged poll results. Primarily, the talking points are that the bump is due to the “strong” showing of McCain in the last debate and the “Joe the Plumber” nonsense has “struck a chord.” You have got to be kidding me. Every post debate poll clearly showed that Barack Obama once again dominated John McCain in the last debate. This was even stronger among undecided voters and independents. There was no strong showing by McCain; he lost and everyone saw him lose. By every count, including Fox News, he lost. Not only that, but he lost all three debates as well as the Vice Presidential debate. Throw in the fact that his recent Ayers attack line and socialist charges were also polled to be losers, the new AP poll simply defies logic.

 

And Joe the Plumber? C’mon guys; you have to do better than this. It has now been revealed that Joe was probably a plant by the McCain camp, which seemed obvious when he approached Obama with stock GOP talking points and has now been exposed as a McCain campaign donor. Even the argument fell apart – that an average American making over $250,000 per year is somehow being cast as being poor or a victim of Obama policy. The realities are that Joe could possibly even do better under Obama than McCain. But moving past the failed realities of Joe the Plumber, the notion that this ridiculous ploy somehow moved a national poll 10-14 points in one day, or one week is patently absurd.

 

A key “finding” is that the lead Obama had with voters making under $50,000 has shrunk from 24% to just 4%. Really? How in the world is that explained? People making under 50K now like the idea of not getting a targeted tax cut and feel bad for millionaires? Once again, absurd. Not to mention that this week saw the incredibly strong endorsement for Obama by Colin Powell on national television on Sunday. We are supposed to believe that this had a negative effect?

Let’s look at this against the backdrop of every other poll out today. The Washington Post-ABC News poll showed Obama up by 9 percentage points, while a poll by the nonpartisan Pew Research Center had Obama leading by 14. A Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll, among the broader category of people registered to vote, found Obama ahead by 10 points. So we have 9, 10, and 14; numbers consistent with what has been the norm for a few weeks now and this one rogue poll which says “no no, it is a statistical dead heat.” Please, let’s be real.  

This is all about the backdrop for the theft of the election. Already states such as New Jersey are refusing to allow election experts to monitor voting because they claim it is “too important” and election. The crafted talking points on exit polling is that people will be “too embarrassed” to admit they did not vote for Obama. Exit polling is not some haphazard venture. We use it to challenge the elections in other countries as proof when election results have been tampered with. We only had problems with exit polling when the Bush Administration came into power. Suddenly the data collected is not reliable and silly rationales are generated to explain away how someone like John Kerry can win amongst men and women in Ohio, yet still lose the overall count. Is there a third unknown gender demographic? Instead of properly questioning why the vote totals do not match the exit polling and we are talking by wide margins, the exit polling is “adjusted” to reflect the vote tallies.  

Then with the exit polling dismissed, election experts banned from observing, shenanigans like in Colorado where minority ballots are targeted for removal at a rate of at least 1 in every 6, and the bogus “dead heat” poll in hand, the backdrop is set. The machine’s media minions rush out to comment on how legitimate everything was and next thing you know we are in a McCain Administration with Obama and the democrats again wondering what happened? What happened is the lazy democratic congress did nothing about HAVA for the past two years and are doing even less about the daily reporting of voter fraud. I mean real voter fraud, not the silly ACORN nonsense that is being thrown around. Now we see the bending of reality to absurd levels. John McCain’s campaign has been nothing short of an implosion every day. His Vice Presidential pick has been an unmitigated disaster as brilliantly pointed out by Colin Powel this past Sunday. His presentation on the economy has been soundly rejected by the electorate. His dirty politicking has been soundly rejected by the electorate. He is up to double digits in verbal gaffes and bizarre comments. There are reasons why Obama has had a consistent double digit leads. Yet amidst all of this obviousness, the Associated Press wants us to believe that up is down and the election is tied.  

When recently asked about the lead Obama was enjoying, John McCain smiled and responded, “We have him right where we want him.” With the cover story being crafted now, maybe he was right.

Brasscheck TV: The financial meltdown explained

Leave a comment

 

Without this article, you’ll still get value from the video, but with it, you’ll REALLY know what’s going on better than most people on earth…including financial news reporters.

I encourage you to invest the five minutes it will take to read this. If not, you can skip to the link at the bottom.

– Brasscheck

=========================================

*** A short explanation of how we got to where we are

Today’s banking crisis is the THIRD trillion dollar plus US-caused financial meltdown in the last twenty years.

Each one of these crises came into being through the same basic mechanism…the fraudulent over-valuing of financial assets by Wall Street – with a “wink and a nod” (and sometimes a lot more) from the White House and Congress.

The fraudulently valued assets stimulate the economy, impart the illusion of health and then, inevitably, the fraud goes too far and the whole house of card comes painfully crashing back to earth.

The three trillion dollar plus frauds were:

Fraud #1: The so-called “Savings and Loan Crisis” of the late 80s

Fraud #2: The so-called “Tech Bubble” of the late 90s

Fraud #3: The so-called “Credit Crisis” of today

*** How the scam works

The mechanism of these frauds is simplicity itself…

…Take a shaky financial asset and blow up its value and then sell as much of it as you can.

In the “Savings and Loan Crisis,” the instrument was junk bonds.

In the “Tech Bubble” it was Internet stocks.

In the “Credit Crisis” it was individual mortgages collected into pools and then re-sold to investors.

In each case, normal, well established “bread and butter” financial principles were consciously thrown away by Wall Street with no hint of protest from federal regulators.

***The “Savings and Loan Crisis” dissected

Junk bonds caused the Saving and Loan crisis which resulted in the US taking over the assets of hundreds of banks and selling them back over time to the marketplace at fire sale prices.  Junk bonds, which caused the “Savings and Loan Crisis” were shaky bonds that were pumped up by deliberate misrepresentation and what I call “staged dealing.”

Bonds get their value from two things: the amount of interest they pay and how safe they are.

“Junk” bonds have to pay higher interest because they are less safe. Therefore, until the “Savings and Loan Crisis,” savings and loan banks banks were not allowed by law to buy them and call them assets. Reagan/Bush changed all this and then a group of Wall Street fraudsters used the new loophole to kick off an orgy of junk bond creation and junk bond selling to banks and insurance companies.

The crooks would deal the junk bonds back and forth amongst themselves thereby establishing their “value” and then they’d sell them to outsiders. The bonds then became “assets” which could be borrowed against and leveraged to buy even more bonds.  When the bonds failed, the banks failed and in stepped the US government to “fix” the problem that it created at the cost of at least one trillion dollars to US tax payers.

Deja vu, eh?

***The “Tech Bubble” dissected:

The instrument of fraud in the “Tech Bubble” was Internet stocks, start ups in particular.  A stock gets its value from the underlying company’s sales, its growth and its overall prospects for the future.

Pre-tech bubble, companies used to have to prove themselves by being in existence for several years before they could be sold on major exchanges. That standard was thrown away during the tech bubble.

To pump of their values, the companies engaged in “staged dealing” just like the junk bond crooks.

Company #1 would “sell” 20 million dollars in banner ads to Company #2 which would in turn “sell” 20 million in banner ads to Company #1.

In fact, nobody sold anybody anything. Company #2 ran ads for Company #1 and billed it for them. Company #1 ran ads for Company #2 and billed for an equal amount.

These should have been called media trades not sales, but Wall Street was happy to claim them as legitimate cash sales and then use the sales numbers to fraudulently value these companies – many of them totally worthless – in the hundreds of millions and sometimes even the billions.

***The “Credit Crisis” dissected

By now, you see how the scheme works. It’s not complicated at all.  You take near worthless pieces of paper (junk bonds, stock of start up Internet companies, etc.) and declare them to be good as gold. Then you create as many junk bonds and Internet start up stocks as you get and sell them as fast as you can.

In the case of our current crisis, the instrument of fraud was so-called sub-prime mortgages.  Previously, sub-prime mortgages had very little trading value.  Only people in the sub-prime industry itself dealt in them and for good reason. They’re tricky to value and packed with financial peril.

But Wall Street changed all that.  Wall Street said: “If we take LOTS of these mortgages and assemble them into large pools and then slice and dice the pools in various ways, we can sell the slices to banks and other investors as AAA paper.”

It sounds crazy, doesn’t it?  If the underlying pieces of paper are garbage, how does assembling a whole bunch of garbage into one place make it “better?”

It doesn’t, of course, and this is a principle even a three year old child can understand.

But greed and the need to pump up a shaky economy for propaganda purposes are two very strong motivators. Banks created these mortgage pools, sold them to each other, and they by virtue of these “staged sales” declared them valuable.

Do you recognize the pattern now?

If you do, then you are now smarter than all the assembled j@ck@sses who do financial reporting because they apparently can’t – or won’t.

This is the THIRD trillion-dollar plus fraud driven financial meltdown in twenty years and apparently no one in the financial news media can see how it happened.

***But there’s more…

Junk bonds were mass manufactured as fast as the crooks could invent them. Ditto for Internet stocks.

But how did hundreds of billions of dollars worth of “toxic” mortgages suddenly come into being?

Why did the mortgage industry change its lending standards so radically and so suddenly to make their creation possible?

And why did real estate lending regulators in all 50 states – because real estate lending is a STATE-level issue not a federal- go along with it?

Here’s where it gets very interesting…

The fact is state-level lending regulators were VERY concerned about what was going on. They have been for years.  And they not only expressed their concern clearly, they also took SERIOUS concerted legal action to stop lenders from making bad real estate loans to their citizens.

(Most of the sub-prime loans in the news so much today were designed to screw the people who borrowed the money and can rightly be called “predatory” loans.)

Guess who stopped the states from enforcing their own time-proven real estate lending laws and thus created the raw material that made the current “Credit Crisis” possible?

*** The trillion dollar plus question:

If you’re a US taxpayer, you’re going to pay for this fraud so you might as well know who did it to you.

His initials are GB. You know him well. But perhaps more interesting is the name of the person who single-handedly rallied first state attorneys general and then fellow governors to fight the creation of these loans and who in the process became Public Enemy #1 to the Bush Administration…

His initials are ES. If you follow “silly” US political scandals, you’ll recognize his name instantly when you hear it.  And you will *finally* understand why he was quickly and permanently assassinated politically earlier this year.

Had ES been allowed to “live,” he would have been in position to remind everyone every day of who made the current meltdown possible. Instead, he was silenced very effectively. Not with a bullet in the back of the head, but the net effect was just the same. So effective was his assassination that no one can even mention his name in connection with today’s crisis without risking ridicule, or worse.

Last note:

The crisis this fraud has created is *exponentially* bigger than the S & L and Tech Bubble combined.   It’s not going to be resolved by a quick “patch up” and will likely have the same impact on the current generation that the depression of the 1930s had on its parents, grandparents and great grandparents.

On that cheerful note, here’s the big story everyone missed this year and now you’ll finally know what REALLY happened and why:

KArl Rove “fixes” vote records….Brasscheck TV/video

Leave a comment

 

It’s not only possible – it’s highly probable.

Two short videos show that there good odds that Sarah Palin will become the President of the United States some time in the next four years.

Here’s how it will happen…

1. Karl Rove has already “fixed” voter records to such an extent that the Republicans will win the White House in 2008 no matter what lunatics they run as candidates.

2. John McCain is a very sick man and it is unlikely he will last the four year term.

These are not idle theories.

They’re backed up with all-too solid evidence:

Man your canes, walkers and wheel chairs. We defeated the communists and fascists once, now we must do it again by voting them out of our own government. These socialist ghouls infiltrated everything, and are usurping our government while stealing the assets that we earned to finance benefits for our final days. While physical activity now may be painful, contemplate your agony with no benefits, if you don’t do something on November fourth to prevent a communist takeover.

 

Demand that your family and friends go to the polls with you and defeat the traitors who voted for the Bailouts, Amnesty and Free Trade. You can overcome resistance from your socialist indoctrinated children or grandchildren by telling them you will lose all your benefits and have to move in with them if the criminals are not defeated.

 

We must honor the solemn oath we took long ago, and answer this final call to defend our country by defeating the traitors at the ballot box. We cannot die, and surrender our country to a ruthless Communist-Fascist government. A criminal cabal of government and corporate officials of both parties has usurped our government, passing countless unconstitutional laws allowing them to enrich themselves and to destroy us. Phony Free Trade Laws, exploited illegals, and ten different worker Visa programs took our jobs. Using the private Federal Reserve Bank, owned by private banks gave them ability to cause the Great Depression, and now this Greatest of all Depressions when they reduce us to poverty and slavery. with the bailouts.

 

The American People objected to the unconstitutional bailouts by a ratio of about 95 to 1, as did hundreds of independent Economists, but legislators ignored the people and gave the money to their corporate benefactors who caused the Meltdown with their criminal greed. These traitors must be defeated.

 

We allowed this to happen by permitting our schools, institutions and government to be taken over and run by greedy power mad Socialists (communists and fascists) who were too good to work, and too cowardly to serve their country as we did, they chose instead to undermine it. Our Constitution describes the actions of Leaders of both political parties, a majority of congress and many government officials as Treason, pure and simple.

 

Those of us who now fight for our country are in an untenable position because most people resent those who deliver bad news, even if true, and the traitors would like to do us harm for telling the documented truth. You are as uninformed as a box of rocks because the mainstream media is controlled, and refuses to report anything that would reduce the greedy profits of their fascist owners and the power of communist traitors in government.

 

As an Economist, I can tell you that if we can defeat the criminal socialists in government, terminate the unconstitutional private Federal Reserve bank, institute a constitutional currency, end Free Trade deals and other treaties that limit our sovereignty that there is a chance for our Republic. It will require a long difficult and painful period of rebuilding, but if we fail to defeat the communists on November fourth, our people’s pain will be so great that a bloody civil war will result in the near future.

 

I am already a more or less infamous writer, so it will cause me little additional harm to tell you to obtain some gold and silver coins, guns, and ammunition, long term food supplies and related items. Gold Currency now costs three times as much as it did in 2000 and is very difficult to buy. Our media does not report it, but we have active war zones all over this country because of illegals and ongoing treason by government officials in all levels and branches of government. I can’t tell you when all paper money will be worthless, just that it absolutely must occur. This can happen in a day, or in several years, but I think sooner rather than later. You cannot issue endless quantities of money with no backing and expect your currency to retain any value. Those of you with stock have noticed that you have been, and will continue to be sacrificed by communists in government to protect their fascist elite benefactors who control the corporations.

 

Your physical freedom is at risk; look at those who have been framed. Government ignores the Constitution that is the basis for their authority to govern. The result is unconstitutional laws, loss of the Rule of Law, and your God given, and Constitutional Rights. Our government is being usurped by Communists in partnership with Fascists because the controlled media keeps the people ignorant.

 

Bob Schultz, a noted attorney and patriot has a long history of trying to protect our rights in the courts. http://www.wethepeoplefoundation.org. Some of his important quotes are:

  1. United States v We The People is yet another example of the power of the merchants of debt and the corruption of the Judiciary
  2. My argument is the People never gave that power to the Government and the Government has taken another step outside the boundaries We the People have drawn around its limited, enumerated powers. 
  3. The Constitution is all that stands between the People and total tyranny and despotism. However, the Constitution can’t defend itself. That responsibility rests with the People
  4. A free People should always ask, after each impasse, “What is the appropriate next step, given the Government’s violation of the Constitution, and its refusal to respond to legitimate Petitions for Redress?”
  5. The time has come to more openly question and explain why I, or anyone else, should continue to engage our corrupt judiciary in a seemingly losing effort to hold the Government accountable to the restrictions, prohibitions and limited powers set forth in our Constitution
  6. We the People do not draw near our servant Government as aggressors. Our war is not a war of conquest or overthrow. We fight solely in the defense of our Constitution, our Liberty, our Freedom, our unalienable Rights, and our homes, families, and posterity. The record is clear and unambiguous. We the People have repeatedly Petitioned, humbly and in good faith. Our Petitions have been met with scorn. We have entreated, and our entreaties have been disregarded. We have begged, and they have mocked, even now as our financial calamity falls upon us – a bastard born of excessive government force and constitutional abuse
  7. If we have evidence of violations of the Constitution, we have the unalienable Right of Redress – to Petition the Government for Redress of these violations.  If the Government refuses to respond we have the inherent Right to withdraw our allegiance and support

 

 In light of the preceding statements that our government officials are not functioning under full authority of the constitution; you should advise your family and friends who are in the Armed Forces or the Police to refuse to deprive citizens of their God given and Constitutional Rights; because in so doing they are violating the Constitution; and may be supporting a coup causing a bloody Civil War; that an unconstitutional government cannot win with odds of more than 300 to 1.

 

The presidential campaign with Obama and McCain is a total fraud, both are controlled by the same people who are out to impoverish and enslave us. Both of them announced they support amnesty, free trade and the bailouts which gives everything we have to the corporate elites. I like Obama the least because I am a Christian redneck who clings to his religion and guns and cannot support abortion. But, whoever is elected should be impeached.

Here comes election fraud 2008..Brasscheck Tv/video

Leave a comment

Real US news courtesy of the BBC

 

If you live in the United States, one person you’re not likely to ever see on network TV news is American journalist Greg Palast.

He’s just a little bit too relevant and accurate for US media mogul’s tastes.

Fortunately, the BBC took pity on him and gave him a job.

While the US media focuses on the minutia of the campaign, Palast is tracking the one thing that’s really going to matter in the end: which party is more skilled an executing fraud.

Now that their election fraud depredations are obvious even to the most dim-witted, the thugs who run the Republican party are taking a new tack: manufacturing stories about election fraud attempts by the Democratic party.

Are the Democrats capable of fraud? Sure.

They just lack the energy and ambition to do it on the scale that Rove & Co. have managed.

I’ve been reporting about the pervasiveness of election fraud in the US since 1997 and here’s something to watch for: the “reason why”

If McCain and Palin win, the news media as instructed by Karl Rove and Fox News will be telling us how “hockey moms” made the crucial difference or some other such nonsense.
You won’t see this on US TV news, but the real issue in the 2008 campaign is election fraud.

The latest twist…the Republican party in Michigan wants to disqualify people who’s homes are in foreclosure from voting.

Yes, you read that right.

More about The End of America, the documentary

Based on Naomi Wolf’s best-selling book, The End of America identifies how open societies close down as they slide toward fascism and how this is happening in the U.S. right now. The documentary follows Wolf as she takes her book to the streets, urging Americans to defend the Constitution and restore our nation’s cherished democratic values.

My sense of alarm comes from the clear lessons from history that, once certain checks and balances are destroyed, and once certain institutions have been intimidated, the pressures that can turn an open society into a closed one turn into direct assaults; at that point events tend to occur very rapidly, and a point comes at which there is no easy turning back to the way it used to be.

— Naomi Wolf, The End of America: Letter of Warning to a Young Patriot 

I hope that you take advantage of this opportunity to see this important film and to share it with your friends, family, and colleagues before November 4.

 

Best,
Steve

Congressman Robert Wexler  contact@wexlerforcongress.com

I saw it with my own eyes:  The Bush and GOP machine stole the 2000 election and the presidency in Florida (not to mention Ohio in 2004) and the results have been catastrophic for our nation and the world.

Don’t take my word for it – read the dissent of Supreme Court Justices Stevens, Breyer and Ginsberg in the absurd legal decision of Bush v. Gore: “Although we may never know with complete certainty the identity of the winner of this year’s Presidential election, the identity of the loser is perfectly clear. It is the Nation’s confidence in the judge as an impartial guardian of the rule of law.”

Back in 2000, in Florida, I witnessed the votes of World War II veterans thrown away and GOP thugs bully the Miami Dade elections office into stopping a recount.  I swore to myself that never again would the votes of Americans be thrown away and replaced by the votes of appointed judges. Following the 2000 election, I spent 7 years fighting to remove the DIEBOLD electronic machines from Florida and to install a voter verified paper trail which we accomplished last year.

I have bad news:  They are trying again to silence our votes.

Most people associate the 2000 election with paper “chads” and the Supreme Court’s tragic decision.  Yet the voter suppression in 2000 went way beyond not counting votes – from illegal roadblocks near minority precincts to the complete purging of legitimate voters from the rolls through what is called “voter caging “– the practice of using databases to improperly delete voters.

Now, we are seeing signs of voter caging again in both Michigan and Florida.

In Michigan, the state is using a list of foreclosures to purge voters (many of which are still legitimate voters in their districts).

In Florida, my home state, the Republican led Supervisor of Elections is aggressively applying a new law designed to limit voter fraud by summarily deleting voters who might have – as part of a clerical error – a different driver’s license or social security number than was put in the database.

If legitimate, legal voters are denied access to the voting booth – we risk a repeat of 2000, in multiple states.

We must remain vigilant, not just in defense of our economy, but in defense of our rights as Americans.

I am working with my colleagues in Congress to call attention to this matter, but I encourage you to contact your state elections supervisor and demand that they allow every person who claims to be a legitimate voter to submit a provisional ballot.

There is a system in every state to deal with provisional ballots – to verify their legitimacy after the fact.

Voter caging is a threat to our (already challenged) democratic principals.  Please join me and pass this email along to spread the word.

If you have not already signed up at www.wexlerforcongress.com, and would like to be on this list, please sign up today.

Sincerely,

Congressman Robert Wexler

Why Wont The Bail Out Work?

This is a MUST SEE 7 Minute Video

http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article21071.htm



Voters are rightly furious at the proposal to spend $700,000,000,000 that the government doesn’t have to bail out Wall Street bankers who created the current economic crisis in the first place. But why then aren’t we concerned about the trillions of dollars the Federal Reserve is pumping into the system? Or the trillions missing from the Pentagon? Or the quadrillion dollar derivatives bubble.

PLEASE ACT – MN government wants to own your DNA!

ACT NOW !                                            

TAKE OUR DNA SURVEY

UNDER ATTACK:  Your Parent, Patient, Privacy & DNA Property Rights!

While the MN Genetic Privacy law today requires informed written consent before government or others can collect, store, use or share YOUR genetic information….state government bureaucrats and special interests in a state genetic committee want to eliminate the consent requirement next year!


The Threat                

NEWBORN DNA: The MN Genetic Information Working Group has met for a year. During these meetings, the issue of newborn genetic testing…and storage and use of newborn DNA-filled blood spots…has become very contentious. (see quotes below)

BIG GOVERNMENT: Working group members from the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) want government control and ownership of citizen DNA for “public health” purposes. Their recommendation seeks to undo the informed written consent requirements of the 2006 genetic privacy law (MN Statutes 13.386).

• INVOLUNTARY RESEARCH: The lawyer representing Mayo Clinic in the working group wants all blood, tissue and body parts taken in the course of your medical care to be available without your consent for medical and genetic research by your clinic, hospital and laboratory.

OPPOSED TO GOVERNOR’S VETO: Mayo’s lawyer also stated during one of the meetings that Governor Pawlenty’s decision to veto the 2008 DNA warehouse bill should not have happened (Notice: Mayo has a contract with MDH to do genetic testing of all babies).


Your help is needed now!

The 2009 legislature will soon be asked to decide whether to protect or eliminate your consent rights, privacy rights, patient rights and DNA property rights.

A report from the MN Genetic Information Working Group will go to the 2009 legislature in December.

Twila Brase, CCHC’s president and an appointed member of the working group, has pressed for retaining informed written parent and patient consent requirements. She has said that government and private institutions must be required to obtain informed written consent for almost all collection, storage, use and dissemination of biological specimens (blood, tissue, fluids, organs, hair, etc). She has repeatedly told the working group:

  • Individuals need the right to protect themselves from having their genetic data used against them and their families.
  • No person should be forced to be an involuntary subject of medical and genetic research.
  • Genetic experts are already warning that there can be no guarantee of anonymity in research because of the proliferation of databases.
  • Even if DNA and genetic testing data could be anonymized, individuals should not be forced to participate in research they may find objectionable.

Today, the Mayo attorney told members of the working group that if they accept CCHC’s recommendations regarding research, Minnesota would become an “outlier.” Twila Brase disagreed, saying Minnesota would instead become a leader.

Help us protect your parent, patient, privacy and DNA property rights!

If you haven’t already done so…please take CCHC’s very brief DNA OWNERSHIP SURVEY today!

Please ask everyone you know to take the survey as well!

 

STATEMENTS HEARD AT TODAY’S MEETING OF THE   MN GENETIC INFORMATION WORKING GROUP:

“People have to be very careful in weighing the risk of discarding  specimens…If you limit the ability to test these spots or keep these spots, you’ll limit the ability to test for lethal conditions in the future.”

(Ruth Lynfield, MDH Epidemiologist, arguing for continued government retention of newborn blood taken from all babies at birth)

“Yes, that’s rightThat’s how it’s historically been done.”

(Lynfield, MDH, in response to a member’s question about whether newborn blood spots now retained by the state health department have already been used for research to develop additional newborn screening tests)

“Yes, perfectly healthy children’s blood spots were used.” (David Orren, MDH attorney, in response to a question about the Mayo Clinic’s research project on Wilson’s Disease using government-retained newborn blood spots – without parent consent or knowledge)

“Having a population-based [blood spot] repository is incredibly important.”

(Lynfield, MDH)

“Public health is such a broad purpose.”

(Orren, MDH, arguing against parent and patient written informed consent requirements for secondary uses of DNA, biological specimens, and genetic information retained by government)

Does the majority of America really believe Socialism is the better cultural system than the Capitalist, free market system we have known since establishment of the US Constitution? That is the prime question voters must ask themselves in this Presidential election.

Soviet premier Nikita Khrushchev in a speech at the Polish embassy in 1956 said “We will bury you.” He explained that meant not by a shovel but from within. The implication was that step by step, Communism would be introduced to Western nations until it eventually overwhelmed existing governance.

As in virtually all cultures, methods change but the end result is always in focus. In America, Mr. Khrushchev’s statement seems alive and well. The strong will of national governance given to us by our Founders has for over fifty years been whittled away at by laws, agreements, judicial rulings, Executive orders, signing statements and the

manipulation of policies favoring Socialistic over Capitalistic principles.

 

Since its founding in 1945, the United Nations has become more influential and powerful. The United States has signed on to several UN socialist policies that have become interwoven into elements of America’s governance. Examples are Smart Growth, environmental policies, endangered species, public/private partnership, federal control of education, gun control, land use control and other restrictions on freedom.

 

The contemporary end result seems to be actions that move the U.S. away from national governance toward world governance. Voters must understand the mindset of candidates and send to Washington DC only those who screen laws they support to their compliance with the U.S. constitution. 

 

Please know your candidates
and vote wisely,

What makes you think the “death tax” applies to you? (The Billionaire’s Tax)

Leave a comment

Ever hear of the “death tax”?  Sure you have.  Ever hear of the “billionaire’s tax”…maybe not, but death tax and billionaire’s tax are one and the same.  The original billionaire’s tax was a crafty piece of legislation that created massive loopholes for the ultra wealthy, allowing them special privileges not available to people like you and me who work for a living.  Here’s how it works:

 

Let’s say, hypothetically you made $1000 and this figure is a staggering amount compared to Joe Shmo who only made $1 this year. (Remember we are speaking hypothetically).  Joe Shmo will pay about 24cents in individual taxes even after the few deductions he is allowed and will pay Social Security taxes on his total income. 

Mr. Billionaire and those making $102 thousand a year or more will not pay SS on anything above this level.  But what else does Mr. B get?

 

*It should be noted here that Joe Schmo is paying the same prices for food, gas, heat, lights, insurance and medical costs as Mr.B.

 

 

  • First Mr. B. gets to “defer” up to 78% of his income, earnings and capital gains for as much as thirty (30) years.  This means he is claiming only 22% of his actual income for tax purposes. And Mr. B can do this year after year after year…….

 

  • Mr. B used to be taxed at a rate of between 37 and 55% on only 22% of his true income, now he is taxed at about 25% of only 22% of his true income.

 

($1,000 times 22% times 25% equals $55 (5.5% “marginal” rate of tax).

 

(Mr. B. has discretionary income of $945, compared to Joe Schmo’s net of 76 cents.)

 

Because Mr.B is fabulously wealthy and contributes to all the top politicians, this allows him special access to those in government.   Special tax provisions, deductions, write-offs, write-downs, carry over, carry back, special exemptions, tax hedges, tax dodges are all used to legally evade paying anything but minimal taxes, if any are paid at all. 

 

After thirty years or so, Mr. B kicks the bucket.  All of his income deferments are totaled up and the tax is assessed on the estate and is due and payable before anyone can inherit anything.  Right?  Wrong!

 

            Some years back Mr. B bought stock at $1 a share.  The day he died the shares were worth $10 each.  A hefty profit!  But a special provision has been provided for Mr. B’s heirs called the step-up basis.  Instead of having to claim the current real value of the stock, they get to “step-up” and claim only the original stock price of $1 and ignore, write-off and ride away with $9 in profits totally tax free.  But it gets better!

 

If the stock is worth less than the initial purchase price, they get to “step-up” to the diminished stock value and pay taxes on this reduced value, if they pay any at all.  But all of this applies under the billionaire’s tax only so long as the estate is valued at $3.45 million or more, net.  And these are just a few of the high points of the perks of being wealthy. 

 

It should be noted here that the Billionaire’s Tax does not apply to those whose net worth is less than $3.45 million, so it is not a consideration or an application that comes into play upon death of the primary holder of the accumulated assets of all kinds.

 

      Mr. B’s heirs also base the possible taxes on the year the income was deferred, meaning the rate of tax in that year of deferment.  As a bonus, the current value of the dollar can be used rather than the value in the year the income was deferred.  Since the value of the dollar has steadily declined, thirty years can put a big dent in the declared value of an estate, but only on paper.

 

In 2000, the top 549 families with incomes above $58 million paid only 17.8% in taxable rates.  That’s about 7% on average less in taxable rates assessed than the rate Joe Shmo pays with his limited deductions and predetermined tax rate which appears for some reason to be permanently fixed and is siphoned off his paychecks in advance of any determination of taxes owed. 

 

Although we are lead to believe, and there are those who desperately need us to believe, that the rich are being unfairly taxed, I disagree.  Most of the wealth these families and individuals have built up has been created due to the largesse of our country and to the hard work of America’s workforce and a lot of political subterfuge.  Nothing any of these wealthy families has accumulated has been acquired without:

 

·         loans from the government (our tax money),

·         subsidies (our tax money)

·         tax credits (we shift the burden to those who can’t afford it)

·         special financing not available to us

·         special tax breaks not available to the common person

·         lobbying politicians to pass special laws or provisions

·         Allowing the creation of phony business address in tax free havens like the Cayman Islands, avoiding any taxes at all

·         Promoting the idea it is unfair for the wealthy to have to pay taxes on 100% of their earnings, just like those of us who make less than 102,000 a year have to.

 

When politicians refer to the “death tax”…..correct them.  It is the Billionaire’s Tax they are referring to and it affects the ultra wealthy only.  It is a carefully devised system of tax liability reductions and available only to a few. Rather than these estates being comprised of predominately family farms, as is claimed, the bulk of all assets are liquid such as bonds, mutual funds, stocks and cash.

 

The myth that family farms have been, or are being lost to this tax is an outright lie.  When Bush campaigned in 2000, he claimed he had talked to many Iowa farmers who were alleged to have lost family farms to the “death tax”.  He has not to this day been able to produce even one name of any farmer who supposedly had this happen.

 

Focus on Farms Masks Estate Tax Confusion   (article)

“Neil Harl, an Iowa State University economist whose tax advice has made him a household name among Midwest farmers, said he had searched far and wide but had never found a farm lost because of estate taxes.  “It’s a myth,” he said.

Even one of the leading advocates for repeal of estate taxes, the American Farm Bureau Federation, said it could not cite a single example of a farm lost because of estate taxes.” http://www.responsiblewealth.org/press/rwnews/2001/estate_tax_nyt_farms.html

The death tax as it is called, will affect less than 546 families with inheritable estates valued at $3.45 million up to, or more than $58 million; and that is the adjusted value using the special provisions provided to the ultra wealthy.   

 

The repealing of the Billionaire’s Tax (death tax) will end any taxing of lifetime deferrals of income, but will not end the practice of deferring income to avoid taxes to begin with. 

 

People who will never, ever in their lifetimes even know anyone who was the beneficiary of the Billionaire’s Tax (avoidance), which in essence is a drop in the bucket for those to whom it applies, rail against this tax as though it is something unfair and that it somehow applies to them or will in the future. 

 

I suggest they try deferring 78% of their income this year, artificially devalue their assets and income to reduce any or all of their tax liability, then, promise the IRS that when they die they’ll pay up.  Let’s see how far that flies.

Facebook’s plans to sell my garbage

Leave a comment

http://deandonaldson.wordpress.com/2007/10/24/facebooks-plans-to-sell-my-garbage/

Excerpted from the article:

“For all its merits, Facebook is a double-edged sword. It is a platform for getting us to part with personal information with our friends and colleagues – in most cases people you haven’t heard from for years (and with possible good reason!) – and then share the very intimacies of your daily habits and thoughts that you deem as an acceptable level. On the other side, it a way of commercialising those opportunities for gain in a wholly assumed intrusive way, just by mere fact you have decided to use their service.

The company wants to ‘better use the data its users voluntarily offer up on their profiles’, as if voluntarily and human guinea pig could be intertwined in this context, where they are relying on their huge database of people’s demographics, relationships, likes and dislikes as the basis of being able to serve targeted advertising against – and lets face it, they are possibly the strongest website contender for knowing the most about any given user online.

They have within the last month filed a trademark of the term ‘SocialAds’, which is a pleasant term for a concept has been a recurring theme for some while now, and is why I derived the more apt phrase ‘snoop-and-serve‘ advertising that I have blogged about before, or as some have dubbed a ’stealth ad system‘. As a keen advocate of behavioural advertising myself, my beef is not related to targeting per se, but in the way you derive the means for delivery.” (end excerpt)

Excerpted from the article:

“Where and when that can of coke was created, where it was transported to, how long it sat on the shelf, who bought it, when they drank it and where it is within your bin to be re-cycled… The product will speak to its RFID readers who in turn via the internet will signal advertising messages to be sent back to that consumer. All that needs to happen is to link you to the product. If an Oystercard or Barclaycard, which in essence is a backdoor national ID card to avoid mass consumer panic, hasn’t raised alarm bells, then the prospect of chipping every single person on the planet should chill your blood. Yes, I do mean putting a microchip inside your body.

RFIDThink about it. Whatever your interests are, whatever purchases you have made, whatever your consumption habits, whatever your travelling habits, whatever communication methods you use, it is all going to be ‘listened to’ and tracked without wires and ultimately signal an advertisement directly personal to you – no matter which digital device you are in front of at any specific time, anywhere in the world; your mobile phone, your PC/laptop, your television screen, your GPS screen in your car, or the digital billboard you just happen to be passing.

Am I saying this loud and clear?

This is not science fiction, it is marketing fact and just a matter of time.” (end excerpt)

Excerpt from “American Drug War” …BRASSCHECK TV/video

Before the “War on Terror” the Bush

family declared another war.

Bush Sr. got the ball rolling on that one.

Bush Sr. was Ronald Reagan’s “Dick Cheney.”

He was the real president while the senile, but highly charismatic actor and lifelong associate of gangsters Ronald Reagan occupied the White House.

It was called “The War on Drugs.”

And just like the “War on Terror,” it was (and still is) a multi-billion dollar enterprise fighting shadows.

Guess who brought cocaine into the US by the planeload during the 1980s?

Excerpt from “American Drug War”

George Bush Sr. has been involved in this since Day One and was the driving force behind Iran-Contra.

Gary Webb, who broke this story, was demoted by his newspaper, the San Jose Mercury, and driven out of journalism by his “colleagues.”

The Washington Post, the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal and the San Francisco Examiner all ran multi-page stories personally discrediting him.

Webb later committed suicide by shooting himself in the head – twice.

Social Security Surplus…A big Welfare Check for federal government

9 Comments

 

Marti Oakley (c)copyright 2010  All Rights Reserved

_______________________________________________

 

From the years 1984 to 2002 the US government had collected 1.7 trillion more in social security taxes than it paid out in claims.  By 2006 this surplus had ballooned to 2.4 trillion in excess SS taxes.  This is 2.4 trillion in excess of all claims paid to widows, retirees, orphans and disability benefits.  And, it is this 2.4 trillion surplus that has Wall Street slobbering all over itself trying to come up with plans on how to siphon that money off of SS and into Wall Street markets.

 

Where did the surplus go?

 

Every administration since Lyndon Johnson, who made the SS trust surplus available to the general fund to finance the Viet Nam war, has used the SS fund to finance anything and everything.  The current president has used the SS surplus to finance the day to day operations of the federal government in lieu of the massive loss of tax revenues generated by the tax cuts to the obscenely wealthy. 

 

The reason that administration economists insisted that the economy was growing was because Social Security surpluses were used to finance tax cuts for people who were so rich they didn’t need them.  On paper, and without admitting the theft of and misuse of funds, the economists reported a “growth” in revenues generated by cutting taxes to the rich. That growth was a direct result of re-designating the stolen funds as “tax revenues”. 

 

What the Bush Republicans have done is to use Social Security taxes so the wealthy can enjoy big huge tax cuts.  More

Supreme Court lays the groundwork for Republican’s

Leave a comment

In what was widely reported as a “shocking” ruling by the United States Supreme Court, the Supremes declared a lower court’s ruling as illegal, halting any forced attempts by the Ohio GOP to challenge the handling of voter registrations.  The Republicans were demanding that all voter registrations be compared to Department of Motor Vehicle car registrations and any voter not registered there……well, too bad.  Which is all well and good if you own a car and have a license. 

The first flag that should have gone up on this issue was just how fast the Ohio Gop got this in front of the Supreme Court.  Any other case would have taken months if not years.

The second, and most important flag was the ruling against the GOP in Ohio.  This allowed the Secretary of State in Ohio to cease any efforts to compare voter registration with DMV records.  The fact is, she is continuing her efforts to verify new voters, and many old ones. 

What you need to be asking yourself here, is why would the Supreme Court rule on this case with the speed of lightening when they are known to take millenium to address any other case, and why would they rule against the party they are known to favor?

It would appear that the Supremes were helping to lay the groundwork for the contesting of the presidential election.  By refusing to uphold the lower court ruling, and in fact reversing it, the court and the GOP assumed the Secretry of State would end all verification activities.  Once the election took place, if Obama won, they had the legal grounds to contest the vote on the basis of possible fraud backed up by the failure of the S.O.S. to verify the registrations under new rules.  Having already gone as far as the Supreme Court, the GOP has engaged the Court in advance for future interference in the election.

If MCCain wins Ohio…you won’t hear a peep out of them.  Not as though that is likely.  This is one of the same states where the GOP has attempted to disenfranchise voters whose homes have gone into foreclosure.  Why having your home foreclosed upon should preclude you from voting is a response to the public holding Republicans primarily responsible for the financial mess we are in, including the sub-prime mortgage fiasco which netted many of their good friends a fortune.  We can’t have people voting who have been victimized by the corrupt and greedy who were enabled by their Republican cronies over the last eight years.  And in Ohio, a large number of foreclosures have occured and continue to occur.  Not good news for the GOP.

In what has to be one of the more transparent rulings of the Supreme Court, the striking down of the lower court ruling was done to facilitate the contesting of the election results.  The GOP will fall back on both court rulings, claiming voter fraud and will sue to prevent the election results from being finalized. 

I find it absolutely mind blowing that the same political party that paid to have voting machines rigged and hacked in every state, who stormed Florida and demanded that the recount be stopped in 2000, the same party that cheated at every turn and at every opportunity; the same party that was responsible for using felon roles from Texas to cage votes in Florida is now crying foul! 

We are looking at Florida all over again, only this time the GOP had to rely on the Supreme Court as Jeb Bush and Kathryn Harris were not available to rig another state election in favor of Republicans.  In Ohio, former S.O.S. Blackwell is not available to do their dirty work there; not that it matters to him, he was promoted and relocated for his efforts on behalf of the GOP. 

This ruling by the Supreme Court was nothing more than the groundwork needed to contest the presidential election.

We don’t need gasoline, we never needed it. BRASSCHECK TV/video

Facts: Scientific and historical about gasoline and alcohol

1. The original automobiles ran on alcohol because when they were invented gasoline was not available.

2. Rockefeller spent $4 million (that we know of) to promote Prohibition, a ban on alcohol manufacturing in the US that started in 1919 just as the car industry was taking off.

3. When Prohibition was lifted in 1933, gasoline stations were ubiquitous and most engines ran on gasoline only.

4. Alcohol can be manufactured locally and on a community level from renewable plant material for $1 per gallon.

5. The growing of plant material for alcohol would have no effect on the price of food.

6. The growing of plants for fuel would more than neutralize the carbon created by burning alcohol for fuel.

7. In Brazil, over 50% of new cars sold can already run on 100% alcohol.

8. Producing alcohol from plant material is incredibly energy efficient.

9. The oil companies aggressively promote garbage science to deceive the public into believing that alcohol fuels: a) will cause starvation, b) are uneconomical, and c) are net polluters.

10. Gasoline is a high toxic material.

11. It is entirely unneeded to fuel our cars.

12. Oil companies like Chevron have pressured PBS, commercial TV networks and other news media to keep this basic information from the public for decades – and the censorship continues to this day.

If this massive deception were to be busted, it would:

 

1. Remove the reason that many wars are fought today

 

2. Revitalize the world economy, especially in rural area

 

3. Instantly increase the wealth and health of every person on earth

 

The fraud is this: We need gasoline.

 

The truth is we don’t now – and we never did.

Iceland says NO! to bailing out banks!

1 Comment

Thursday evening update on the global financial collapse

Excerpted from the article:
“The Prime Minister of Iceland, Geir Haarde, sent shivers through the global financial system when he asserted that Iceland can not, and will not pay the foreign liabilities of its banking sector and that the interests of Iceland will have first priority.
 
Yesterday, Haarde told a press conference: “The point is this. The total indebtedness is such that there is no way that the Icelandic population can take responsibility for the debt these private companies have incurred. It happens everyday in bankruptcies, that some are burnt.”
 
British PM Gordon Brown calls Iceland’s behavior “totally unacceptable” and warned of legal action to recover the US $ 1.74 billion loss in Iceland, especially after the Icelandic government this week passed this week emergency legislation to deal with the banking collapse. Unlike the British or U.S. plans, this was not a bank “rescue” plan but legislation that gave the government the authority to seize any bank or financial company, put it through a bankruptcy or other procedure that would put the interests of the Icelandic nation over that of the banks.
 
Next door to us, Mexico’s peso lost 24% of its value against the US dollar, making its imports of wheat, corn, beans, milk, and rice 24% more expensive. The Peasant Association reported yesterday that remittances for the month of September fell 29.6%, causing panic in Mexico. Remittances from the U.S. are Mexico’s second highest earner of foreign exchange.” (end excerpt)

Downsize DC….Do you know who the “Primary Dealers” are?

1 Comment

Quote of the Day:
George Kaufman, a finance professor at Loyola University Chicago, is skeptical. “The last refuge of a scoundrel regulator,” he says, “is to shout ‘systemic risk.'” Usually, the alarm is false. He notes that aside from inter-bank lending, the credit markets were functioning tolerably well at the height of the crisis. Rates on 30-year mortgages actually dropped last week.
— from
a column by Steve Chapman, September 25, 2008

Subject: Do you know who the “Primary Dealers” are?

There’s a lot of evidence that we’ve been scammed. Treasury Secretary Paulson and Federal Reserve Chairman Bernanke told us they needed to spend $700 billion of your money to buy supposedly toxic assets that were crippling major firms and for which there was no immediate market. This was a lie even when they said it, because . . .

Merrill Lynch was able to sell it’s most troubled assets back in July.

If Merrill could do it, other firms could do it too. They might not have liked the price they got, but it could have been done. The Big Bailout was purposely designed to give favored firms a better deal than they could have gotten in the market.

We’ve also been told, constantly, that credit markets are frozen. We’re still being told that today, constantly, around the clock, on the cable business channels. It wasn’t true before, and it isn’t true now. We could point you to many places for the evidence, but here’s one great graph from the blog Carpe Diem to give you the evidence in one pretty picture.

The hysteria mongers would tell you that even if consumer credit is okay (and you would have to hammer them with the evidence to get them to admit it), commercial credit is still in big trouble. But that isn’t true either. Here’s a good summary from the great scholar Robert Higgs, at the Independent Institute . . .

“Looking at the data for the first four business days of the past week, I find that firms sold from $179 billion to $205 billion of commercial paper per day; the number of separate issuances per day ranged from 6,761 to 7,298. Both the total amount borrowed and the number of issuances per day increased steadily throughout the week (data for Friday have not yet been reported).”

Higgs goes on to compare the current numbers with past periods and finds NO CREDIT FREEZE!

But what about the stock market? Doesn’t its fall tell us there’s a crisis? Perhaps, until you consider what’s causing stocks to fall.

The really big drops began when Paulson and Bernanke began peddling their fear to Congress. And since then, nearly every time some government official has opened his or her mouth, with some new claim or some new plan, the stock market has taken another nose dive. A good chunk of the decline appears to be driven by fear mongering. Want more evidence?

This is the season when firms report their earnings, and many companies are beating the estimates, but their stock prices are still falling. This is about fear, not fundamentals.

Who is responsible for this scam? Who are the con artists?

One big culprit in every supposed crisis is the media. They always blow everything out of proportion. Doing so is good for business. CNBC’s ratings are soaring.

Another culprit is the politicians, who gain power from hysteria. In the last supposed crisis (terrorism) it was the Republicans who primarily benefited. This time it will be the Democrats, who have a decade of pent-up desires to re-engineer American society. These dreams may now become reality in the wake of the current fear mongering. 

And last, but not least among the con artists, are a group of businesses with an official government relationship that earns them the designation of “Primary Dealers.” Here’s what Wikipedia has to say about the Primary Dealers . . .

“A primary dealer is a bank or securities broker-dealer that may trade directly with the Federal Reserve System of the United States.[1] They are required to make bids or offers when the Fed conducts open market operations, provide information to the Fed’s open market trading desk, and to participate actively in U.S. Treasury securities auctions.[2] They consult with both the U.S. Treasury and the Fed about funding the budget deficit and implementing monetary policy. Many former employees of primary dealers work at the Treasury, because of their expertise in the government debt markets, though the Fed avoids a similar revolving door policy.[1][2] Between them, these dealers purchase the vast majority of the U.S. Treasury securities (T-bills, T-notes, and T-bonds) sold at auction, and resell them to the public.”

Who are the Primary Dealers? Look at this roster (which used to include Bear Stearns) . . .

* BNP Paribas Securities Corp.
* Bank of America Securities LLC
* Barclays Capital Inc.
* Cantor Fitzgerald & Co.
* Citigroup Global Markets Inc.
* Credit Suisse Securities (USA) LLC
* Daiwa Securities America Inc.
* Deutsche Bank Securities Inc.
* Dresdner Kleinwort Securities LLC.
* Goldman, Sachs & Co.
* HSBC Securities (USA) Inc.
* J. P. Morgan Securities Inc.
* Lehman Brothers Inc.
* Merrill Lynch Government Securities Inc.
* Mizuho Securities USA Inc.
* Morgan Stanley & Co. Incorporated
* UBS Securities LLC.

We should notice several things about this list . . .

* These are among the primary firms that collaborated with the government to create the housing bubble
* These are the primary firms that profit from the financing of the national debt and who are benefiting from the current explosion in the federal debt and the Federal Reserve’s massive inflation of the money supply
* These are probably the primary firms that will work with the Treasury Department to manage the auction of toxic assets
* These are also probably the primary firms that have toxic assets to sell (they will be both sellers and brokers in the Big Bailout)
* And most of these firms have been made “too big to fail” through their business dealings with the government

These Primary Dealers are the primary players in the Big Bailout con-game. And they are part of the crowd who are looting the country.

You can sit back and accept the Big Bailout and the on-going Big Interventions as an accomplished fact, or you can rage and protest to Congress. If we fall silent then the con-artists will be emboldened to do more and more. We must not fall silent. We must protest constantly.

We’ve created a new generic campaign to oppose all government bailouts. Please use this campaign to send Congress another message. Ask them to reconsider the Big Bailout. Ask them to roll-it-back. Use your personal comments to mention some of the facts described in this article. You can send your message using our Educate the Powerful System.

You can also compete with the power of Primary Dealers, the politicians, and the media, by taking steps to expand your own political influence. Please take these additional steps . . .
