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.

Monkey see, Monkey do……BRASSCHECK TV/video

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

Leave a comment

 

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

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.
