21 Trillion missing from US Government…no Accounting for it

Leave a comment

One comment that deserves special attention from one of our members:
LouieC……
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The question to ask all those running for public office:
$21 Trillion dollars is missing from the US government. That is $65,000 per person – as much as the national debt!
“No money shall be drawn from the treasury, but in consequence of appropriations made by law; and a regular statement and account of receipts and expenditures of all public money shall be published from time to time.” ~ Article I, Section 9, Clause 7, U.S. Constitution
What’s going on? Where is the money? How could this happen? How much has really gone missing? What would happen if a corporation failed to pass an audit like this? Or a taxpayer?
This means the Fed and their member banks are transacting government money outside the law. So are the corporate contractors that run the payment systems. So are the Wall Street firms who are selling government securities without full disclosure. Would your banks continue to handle your bank account if you behaved like this? Would your investors continue to buy your securities if you behaved like this? Would your accountant be silent?
This is the reason that there is such a strong push to change or tear up the US Constitution. This is why members of the establishment say it is “old,” “outdated!” This is why there is such a push for gun control. Don’t buy it! We can use the Constitution to get our money and our government back. It is time to enforce the US Constitution.
The Solari Report has been covering the missing money since 2000 when Catherine Austin Fitts began to to warn Americans and global investors about mortgage fraud at the US Department of Housing and Development (HUD), the engineering of the housing bubble that lead to trillions more dollars in bailouts and funds missing from the US government starting in fiscal 1998.

Conservatives Successfully Conserve Massive Deficits

Leave a comment

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Conservatives in Congress proudly announced Monday they have achieved their goal of conserving massive budget deficits.

“These progressives want to destroy our country by getting rid of all of our traditions,” said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. “That’s why you need to vote for us conservatives—we make sure that our traditions are conserved, such as spending trillions of dollars we don’t have and expanding the size of the federal government every year.”

“American customs and traditions like an ever-expanding federal government must be protected,” said House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy. “The progressives go a little too fast for our liking. When you vote for a Republican, you can be assured that we will hold the deficit steady at around $1 trillion per year.”

Many people have been wondering just what it is conservative politicians are supposed to be conserving, and they’re glad to finally have an answer. Some supposed that conservatives just wanted to conserve social order as manifested in traditional marriage, religion, and morals, but since they’ve been losing that battle for years, many people weren’t sure anymore.

“It’s nice to know that when I check the box with the little R next to it, I’m making sure our values, like spending trillions our grandkids are going to have to pay back, are being preserved,” said Republican voter Lila Billings from Idaho. “I’m helping!”

“From President George W. Bush to the Obama years and now the Trump regime, we’ve followed through on our promising to ABC—Always Be Conserving,” said McCarthy. “Conserving a sprawling government, reckless spending, and taxes that would have led to a revolution just 50 years ago.”

“You’re welcome.”

MEDICAL RIGHTS DENIED

2 Comments

_________________________________________________________________

The infringement of medical rights and normal access to necessary types of pain medicine has been an ongoing issue for many years. How is it that the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) or the DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration), an unelected agency, has the legal authority to deny effective prescription pain killers by a doctor for a patient? Are these agencies more knowledgeable than the MD’s or is it politics as usual?

Countless patients who plead their case with their doctors are now suffering needlessly from excruciating pain because these agencies which are an arm of the federal government are presently restricting the use of certain prescription drugs that may be addictive. Drugs such as Vicodin(Hydrocodone), a pain reliever, was taken off of the market because it was found not only to be addictive but it also caused liver cancer. Yet, there are many other drugs, depending upon the frequency of their usage, that present other problems. Also, while medical marijuana is seen as a pain reliever, it has also been shown in studies to be addictive and also causes cancer. So what else is new. People who are denied pain relievers for certain ailments are also given regular doses of morphine which will, in the end be fatal.

Here is the case of the late, Ms. Siobhan Reynolds, founder of the Pain Relief Network. The Network was an advocate for adequate pain medication for patients and against the regulations and the negligent
behavior of those agencies such as the FDA and DEA. Doctors who are willing to provide for their patients are now under more scrutiny from these federal agencies when it comes to prescribing pain medicine. Ms. Reynolds whose recommendations would undercut the ability of federal agencies that violate the medical rights of American citizens were not heard.

Countering her recommendations at the time, the Assistant U.S. Attorney Tanya Treadway attempted to silence Reynolds with a gag order in the case of Dr. Stephen Schneider, who was indicted for “illegal drug trafficking” in December 2007. The gag order was very properly denied, but the U.S. Attorney’s Office responded with an inquisitorial and malicious Grand Jury proceeding against Reynolds, which bankrupted her organization. Although Grand Jury proceedings are secret in order to protect defendants, Reynolds’ desire to make all records public has been improperly denied, apparently in order to protect, not her innocence, but the guilt of the prosecutors.

Later, the Obama administration moved to restrict prescriptions of the most commonly used narcotic painkillers in the U.S. in an attempt to curb widespread abuse. Also, the DEA said it would reclassify
hydrocodone combination drugs such as Vicodin and put them in the category reserved for medical substances with the highest potential for harm.

In summary, if you or persons that you know are suffering from needless pain because your doctors are reluctant to administer certain pain medications, you now know the reason.

“The Commerce Clause – Pathway to a Dictatorship!”

“By permitting Congress to regulate so much of our lives under the Commerce Clause, the Supreme Court has changed the federal government from one of limited and enumerated powers, to one with few exceptions to its power.”  Walter E. Williams, Professor and Columnist

It has been proven out many times by history, that human nature is vastly more influential on the affairs of man, than any agreements that exist between men to control their affairs. Charters, constitutions and treaties between geopolitical entities, or between governments and the people, are nothing more than “blue prints” to govern those affairs. But since men have been breaking agreements between themselves since the dawn of civilization, disputes arise often and those disputes are sometimes resolved through negotiations and arbitration, or the passing of, or revisions to, more “blue prints”, or other times they are resolved by war, when negotiations or arbitration reach an impasse. Thus, there is a constant battle between human nature and those “blue prints” that are designed to control human nature.

There is a general misconception by most people on what a contract (a “blue print” for behavior) between people, businesses, or governments, really means and what it is designed to do. We can’t remember the number of times people have said to us, in the course of 30 years in real estate development and investments: “He can’t do that, we have a contract!” And we could only respond with, “…. people can do anything they want to do. A contract only spells out what the parties are to do while the contract is in full force and effect and what to do when one or both of the parties violate or are in breach of the contract terms.” That is why contract law takes up so much room on the law bookshelf and that is why courts are full of people who violate or allegedly violate their contracts. Again, it is readily apparent that human nature has much more power over man, than man has to control human nature by law. More

Wheat, Weed, and ObamaCare: How the Commerce Clause Made Congress All-Powerful

reason.tv: “How did a clause intended as a restriction on states wind up giving Congress a green light to regulate noncommercial, local, and purely private behavior? How will ObamaCare stand up against the legal challenges brought by the states? Legal titans John Eastman (Chapman University Law Professor) and Erwin Chemerinsky (Founding Dean, University of California, Irvine School of Law) slug it out to to determine whether or not Congress has been abusing the commerce clause.”

when the federal government “assumes undelegated powers…” nullification of the act is the rightful remedy.

1 Comment

For more than a century, We the People have been marching on D.C. in the hopes that federal politicians would see the light and limit federal power. We have been suing in federal courts in the hopes that federal judges would limit federal power. We keep “voting the bums out.” But every federal election cycle we end up with new bums that expand federal power! 

Asking, demanding, hoping – that the federal government will limit its own power – just doesn’t work. So why not try something new? Nullify Now!

Thomas Jefferson wrote that when the federal government “assumes undelegated powers…” a nullification of the act is the rightful remedy.

NULLIFICATION – has a long history in the American tradition. It is happening across the country RIGHT NOW. And YOU can help this growing movement go mainstream. More

REPORT ON THE 10TH AMENDMENT RALLY IN ALBANY NY

John Wallace
Liberty News Online
American Politics/blogtalk radio
______________________________________________________________
It was a beautiful, rain free day on August 7th at the Capitol Steps in Albany where freedom loving New Yorkers gathered in support of the United States Constitution, focusing on the Amendment. The rally began as patriotic music, including songs by local bands the Ameros and American Spirit Unbroken, played while tables were set up by the speakers and candidates. Organizers, driven by the desire to spread the message of the importance of State’s Rights in restoring our Republic and individual liberty, coordinated this event in six weeks with minimal experience and funding.
 
John Wallace Comments at the Rally (Video):
Part I (4 minutes)
Part II (7 minutes)
 
 
The rally was mainly promoted via internet and some radio announcements from Hudson, NY where many of the organizers originate. Traditionally, New York is a left-wing state, but this is a spark that will set afire many more people in the state toward stopping the Federal Government’s intrusion on our liberties. More

Wisconsin: A state under seige by its own government

“The actions of state agencies complicit with state elected officials, shows malice and forethought with the intent to benefit not only the state monetarily, but also specific corporations who also intend to benefit from the prosecutions.  It is not as if they didn’t or don’t know what they are doing.  This was planned and pre-meditated, and state officials and agencies in collusion with the USDA and corporate profiteers knew full well the harm they intended to inflict on the private property owners of the state and that these actions would drive many farmers and ranchers off their land and out of business. “

It seems rather apparent with the extensive abuses of agency offices and personnel supported and encouraged by elected officials, even if only by their silence; their refusal to act on behalf of the citizens, and their obvious disregard for property and individual rights, maybe Wisconsin needs to clean house. 

The oath of office taken by your elected government officials is a contract affirmed by oath.  Under contract law, that oath has been breached by the various compacts, contracts, and entry into agreements, business plans and other instruments which are intended to cause harm to the citizens of the state of Wisconsin and the contract is now voided.  Boot them out of office.

About the Selling of Fresh Milk

The recent offering of what is supposed to pass for a proposed bill to protect the right of Wisconsin dairy farms from further prosecution and persecution by the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture and Consumer Protection (DATCP) would have been comical had it not been presented as a means to allow dairy farmers to trade freely what is known to be a wholesome and natural product: fresh milk.

The fact is, even if this limited proposal (as questionable as it is) had any legitimacy, it falls far short of what is desperately needed to reign in the activities of DATCP: an agency which has far exceeded any lawful or constitutional boundaries; yet not one state legislator has acknowledged the egregious activities this agency is engaged in against the sovereign citizens of the state.  In fact, it was state and federal legislators who entered into cooperative agreements with the USDA, accepting millions on behalf of the state to implement USDA business plans that clearly violated not only state, but federal constitutions.  More

A recent article in the New York Times covered the growth of state-level resistance to a future national health care plan. For example, in 2010, voters in Arizona will have a chance to approve a state constitutional amendment that would effectively ban national health care in that state. Legislators in Florida and Michigan have already introduced similar legislation, and potentially, 15 other states will do so in the 2010 legislative session. More

The directive to end all directives!  We can now dispense with congress.  This is from the Bush 2 Administration…….and still in effect.  Obama has not rescinded this directive.  And why would he?  It gives the president unconstitutional dictatorial powers.  This directive also established the Trans-Atlantic Economic Union…….and created a new cabinet post for this illegal union.

Scalping the American Indian is not a new thing for the Federal Government. At certain points of history it appeared somewhat like a game to play soldiers and Indians, to test if repeating rifles compared favorably with wooden bows and arrows. The most recent game is the bribery of tribes for NAIS conquest.

Sec. Vilsack says NAIS is $170 million to date

On August 31, Secretary Vilsack stated that “…..the USDA has spent $170,000,000 to promote the NAIS program.” Although it has been the “shining program on a hill” for USDA, it has met with dismal disaster and disgust to 95% of livestock producers. More

Note: The following letter was found left behind at a local drinking establishment; the authors’ identity is unknown. It is passed along without comment.

“That whenever any form of government becomes destructive of [life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness], it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it…” ~ Declaration of Independence of the American Colonies, 1776

Dear Federal Government,

Drop dead.

Excuse us. Some may consider such bluntness to be indecorous, but why beat around the bush? In any case, we’ve been around this bush (Bush?) too many times to count already. It’s time to let you know what we really think of you, what we say behind your back, what we whisper to each other when you leave the room.

We hate you. We want you to drop dead. Or, anyway, to go away and never come back. You are not welcome anymore. We have tolerated you – and we emphasize “tolerated” – for a long time, long after whatever romance there may have been was gone. We can pretend no more. You are disgraceful, boorish, nauseating, corrupt, shameful, arrogant, dishonest, self-serving, parasitic, disgusting, hypocritical, and rotten to the core. You have not even one redeeming quality. There is nothing you offer that we want any longer. We’re not even sure what it is we ever saw in you to begin with.

We suppose you can be forgiven if this letter comes as a shock. “Why,” you say, “what do you mean? I still command great respect and inspire widespread adulation. And I still care about you. Isn’t it obvious?”

It’s true that, in public, we often nod our heads and agree with you, even defer or appear to defer to you. But we assure you that this happens not out of respect; rather, it arises merely from the fact that you have a lot of guns and a bad temper. Inside, we are seething and resentful. Inside, we imagine your demise in the most vivid and gratifying of ways. We may fear your irrational and violent behavior, but we manifestly do not respect or agree with you. We don’t love you. We don’t even like you. (See the part about hate, above.)

At any rate, our revulsion toward you has finally come to outweigh any fear we have of you. We refuse to keep our real feelings in for even one more second. We want you gone from our lives. And we mean completely. Vamoose. Go. Die.

Please understand we aren’t here to argue. No special new subsidy, tax break, or privileged “loophole” is going to sway our opinion or make us change our minds about this. We’ve been there, done that, for too many decades to count now. Likewise, your threats are starting to make us yawn and even laugh. You see, we know all your tricks now. We can see through your lies because we’ve heard them all so many times before. We are fully aware of your true nature, and we see that that nature is radioactive evil, wrapped in a tattered blanket of ignorance, foolishness, and stupidity.

Look, we know it’s only a matter of time anyway. Your dimwittedness, greed, fraudulence, and moral bankruptcy are finally starting to catch up to you. Even your former employees admit as much. Do you remember Paul Craig Roberts, one of your past Treasury officials? Today he says of your latest economy-wrecking and warmongering efforts:

 

“The world has never seen such total mindlessness. Napoleon’s and Hitler’s marches into Russia were rational acts compared to the mindless idiocy of the United States government.”

Mindless idiocy: We could not have said it better ourselves. Wait, yes, we could have, because we would have also mentioned your meanness and malevolence.

Our state governments are starting to feel the same way about you that we do. Many are openly refusing to obey your so-called “REAL ID” attempt at creating a national “your papers, please” regime of Hitlerian proportions. Some are even starting to make noises about the Tenth Amendment, which reiterates that you aren’t allowed to just do anything you feel like doing. (We are not big fans of our state governments either, but at least they don’t start wars, counterfeit our money, and prop up tyrannies across the globe.)

You see? Look in the mirror for once. The emperor not only hasn’t got any clothes, he’s a quadruple amputee demanding that everyone admire his muscular physique. We don’t know whether to laugh at or feel pity for such a pathetic creature.

In conclusion and just so we’re clear: We’re done. Pack up and get out. Better yet, don’t pack – all that stuff belongs to us in the first place. Just get out. And when you finally, mercifully, do kick the bucket, please make sure it is in some place far away from us, where we won’t have to smell the stench of your hideous, rotting corpse.

Signed,

Every Normal Human Being in America and the Rest of the World

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

Ten Reasons Not To Bail Out Wall Street

Leave a comment

 

Ten Reasons Not To Bail Out Wall Street

Catherine, Geopolitical, Life and News & Commentary,

October 1, 2008 at 6:10 pm

by Catherine Austin Fitts and Carolyn Betts, Esq.

(1) Crime that pays is crime that stays.

There is reason to believe that Wall Street and those they represent are holding loans without collateral, multiple loans secured by the same properties, and other fraudulent instruments among the “troubled assets.” Based on the secret “Treasury Conference Call” with 800 Wall Street insiders, we know the deal proposed to be passed by Congress isn’t the real deal promised to Wall Street.

(2) This smells like obstruction of justice.

Bail-out without due diligence of so called “troubled assets” is a perfect way to hide documentation of financial crimes. It is also a perfect means to launder both the past ill-gotten gains and new federal money spent recklessly and without necessary safeguards and oversight mechanisms. Be very suspicious when they tell you “we just can’t tell what’s in these troubled assets.” We can assure you that the federal government has field offices all across the country that deal with significant amounts of real estate and mortgage assets on a dailyl basis. If Treasury refuses for more than a decade to comply with the laws, with approximately $4 trillion missing (and counting), it is not competent to manage $700 billion of taxpayer money while its arm is twisted by Wall Street.

(3) Wall Street owes the federal government money.

We need to get stolen money back from the banks that served as depositories for the US government (including trillions for which the Pentagon and HUD could not account) and punish them, not create another opportunity for them to game the system and engage in criminal enterprises to rob consumers. To the extent there has been regulatory wrong-doing, let’s not let the miscreants leave town with the evidence.

(4) Good guys are shut out.

A bail-out provides no way for honest leaders to come to the fore and use their creativity and expertise to restore balance and integrity to the system or for unproductive and poorly-managed banks that contribute to current over-capacity in the banking system to die a dignified death.

(5) This results in more investment in the “bubble economy.”

Spending massive amounts on non-productive uses (“buying” worthless credit default swaps, mortgages with no collateral and derivatives, which could even include the derivatives used to manipulate the precious metals markets) as opposed to productive uses (repairing infrastructure, creating alternative energy systems, supporting inventing and production of “green” products) is inflationary.

This bail-out will drive prices of food, water and energy up for the people who can least afford it.

(6) Bail-out does not result in capital circulating in healthy ways.

The bail-out of Wall Street and too-big-to-fail banks and insurance companies that are getting bigger by the minute by swallowing up other failing financial institutions (and creating more institutions that are “too big to fail”) does not result in trickle-down to those whose money was stolen in recent swindles (S&L, dot.com, current housing crisis), i.e., the taxpayers/middle class and working poor.

(7) These arrangements will result in more corruption.

Centralized “fixes” are sure to result in black holes, no-bid contracts and other scandals.

(8) The bail-out drains the real economy, rather than invests in the real economy.

The US economy can’t be productive or grow if consumers don’t have jobs and can’t afford to purchase goods and services. Real stimulation of Main Street is accomplished through productive investment, not bail-outs that shift money to unproductive sectors. We should use all of our precious resources to reinvest in our people in the real economy.

(9) It props up sectors that need to downsize and consolidate.

There is significant overcapacity in the financial and banking sectors. Brainpower and talent needs to stop blowing financial bubbles and shift to economic activities that create real value.

(10) It is a temporary “fix” to keep Wall Street afloat until after the election.

Our resources are better invested in permanent, long-term solutions. This bail-out will not fix anything. Rather, it will help the perpetrators get away and ensure that the ultimate day of reckoning is worse.

The Administration wants to drain the real economy to bail out Wall Street. It seems to us that the more appropriate plan would be to require Wall Street to return the $4 trillion plus that is missing and use that to rebuild the real economy.

We think the time has come to reverse the flow. Go to any business school in the country. That is what they teach. Money should move out of unproductive sectors into productive sectors. The bail-out does just the opposite.

“Just say NO!”

STATE OF OKLAHOMA
2nd Session of the 51st Legislature (2008)
HOUSE JOINT RESOLUTION 1089

By: Key
AS INTRODUCED

A Joint Resolution claiming sovereignty under the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States over certain powers; serving notice to the federal government to cease and desist certain mandates; and directing distribution.

WHEREAS, the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States reads as follows:

“The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”; and

WHEREAS, the Tenth Amendment defines the total scope of federal power as being that specifically granted by the Constitution of the United States and no more; and

WHEREAS, the scope of power defined by the Tenth Amendment means that the federal government was created by the states specifically to be an agent of the states; and

WHEREAS, today, in 2008, the states are demonstrably treated as agents of the federal government; and 

WHEREAS, many federal mandates are directly in violation of the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States; and

 
WHEREAS, the United States Supreme Court has ruled in New York v. United States, 112 S. Ct. 2408 (1992), that Congress may not simply commandeer the legislative and regulatory processes of the states; and 

WHEREAS, a number of proposals from previous administrations and some now pending from the present administration and from Congress may further violate the Constitution of the United States.

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES AND THE SENATE OF THE 2ND SESSION OF THE 51ST OKLAHOMA LEGISLATURE:

THAT the State of Oklahoma hereby claims sovereignty under the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States over all powers not otherwise enumerated and granted to the federal government by the Constitution of the United States.

THAT this serves as Notice and Demand to the federal government, as our agent, to cease and desist, effective immediately, mandates that are beyond the scope of these constitutionally delegated powers.

THAT a copy of this resolution be distributed to the President of the United States, the President of the United States Senate, the Speaker of the United States House of Representatives, the Speaker of the House and the President of the Senate of each state’s legislature of the United States of America, and each member of the Oklahoma Congressional Delegation.
