THE FEDERAL RESERVE: A DIFFERENT VIEW

Author: oldreb

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

“What difference does an increase in the National Debt make? We owe it to ourselves.” virtually every congress-critter has declared. Such a paraphrased statement, reflecting on the exoskeleton structure of the Federal Reserve, ignores the inner historic mechanisms of Rothschild banking, the intense subterfuge and arm-twisting of the Fed’s creation, and the proven destructive forces inherent but hidden therein. 1

The medieval Rothschild Banks established a line of credit for the King provided the King issued a written promise to pay gold, with interest, to the bank at a time in the future. The book-entry Rothschild credit was used to pay for obligations incurred by the king. The credit continued to be circulated in the kingdom between merchants. The bankers sold the king’s interest bearing promise of gold to investors. The promise was renewed by the king on its maturing date and became perpetually rolled-over. 2

VOILA !!! The king made the suppliers of services happy with Rothschild credit; the bankers had the gold from investors; the investors had a promise the king would eventually pay them in gold—which would never happen. 3 Everything went smoothly as long as the bankers could sell the promise and the investors did not demand the gold. 4 As Benjamin Ginsburg has lamented in FATAL EMBRACE; (bankers) AND THE STATE 5, eventually the schemes, which stole the wealth from the people with book-entry fiat money, would come to a catastrophic climax. 6

The Federal Reserve system, claimed to be “staffed and run by Council on Foreign Relations members” 7 does the same thing for the U.S. government’s deficit spending. Their wizard is hiding behind Frank Baum’s curtain as obscurant to any public inquiry.8

The Federal Reserve Bank of New York will grant credit (not “create money”) in an account of the US government with an amount that the government will pledge. 9 The government will expend the book-entry-credit account (deficit spending) to pay for goods and services consumed by the government. The suppliers are content. Evidence that the supplier has received a credit voucher is obvious. [It is touted to the public as a loan.10] The heading of the currency given to the supplier by a local commercial bank is Federal Reserve Note; i.e., a debt obligation of the Federal Reserve also identified as a “tender” (substitute) required by law to be accepted for an imprinted number of dollars. 11 More

The House Fiscal Year 2019 Budget and Its Effect on Seniors

Leave a comment

 

 

The House Budget Resolution for Fiscal Year (FY) 2019 would make cuts to the Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security programs and repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA), actions which would be harmful to millions of Americans.

The House Budget Resolution for FY 2019, introduced by House Budget Committee Chairman Steve Womack (R-AR), was approved by the House of Representatives Budget Committee on June 21, 2018.  This budget proposes drastic cuts in federal spending for programs of importance to most low- and middle-income Americans while protecting nearly $2 trillion in tax cuts, which mainly benefit the very wealthy and large profitable corporations and dramatically increase our deficits and debt.  This paper summarizes some of the key proposals in the House Republican FY 2019 budget resolution that would affect seniors and people with disabilities who rely on Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security.

Medicare

The budget resolution proposes $537 billion in cuts to Medicare which would be achieved by ending traditional Medicare and increasing health care costs for beneficiaries.  Chairman Womack’s plan assumes savings for the federal government by privatizing Medicare and shifting costs to Medicare beneficiaries.

Privatizing Medicare with Vouchers/Premium Support Payments

Under premium support, when people become eligible for Medicare they would not enroll in the current traditional Medicare program which provides guaranteed benefits.  Rather they would receive a voucher, also referred to as a premium support payment, to be used to purchase private health insurance or traditional Medicare through a Medicare Exchange.  The amount of the voucher would be determined each year when private health insurance plans and traditional Medicare participate in a competitive bidding process.  Seniors choosing a plan costing more than the average amount determined through competitive bidding would be required to pay the difference between the voucher and the plan’s premium.  In some geographic areas, traditional Medicare could be more expensive.  This would make it harder for seniors, particularly lower-income beneficiaries, to choose their own doctors if their only affordable options are private plans that have limited provider networks.  Wealthier Medicare beneficiaries would be required to pay a greater share of their premiums than lower-income seniors.

800000 Non Essential Employees?

This was just too good~~

 By Anna Von Reitz

If they are “non-essential” why are we paying for their services?

Just  sayin’.

If we don’t need them….what are they doing on our payroll?

Also bear in mind that we have the better part of a million “non-essential” employees on our payroll at the same time that those responsible for this situation are poor-mouthing about their “National Debt”?

Well, if they have an insurmountable National Debt and 800,000 employees we don’t really need, the answer to the problem seems obvious enough to me as an Employer.

First, make the Pink Slips permanent.

Second, deport the two million or so Bar Attorneys, confiscate their ill-gotten assets, give their homes and retirement accounts to the 800,000 unemployed federal workers, use the rest of the gross largess to pay down the “National Debt” and everyone (except the Bar Attorneys) will go home happy.

Very happy.

Talking about humanitarian crisis and borders and forced immigration — what will the Lord Mayor and the Queen do with two million or so unemployed British Merchant Marine Shipping Clerks when they all come home to roost?

You think Europe has trouble with Muslims? And we have trouble with Mexicans and Hondurans? Just think about two million angry disinherited lawyers hitting the streets and unemployment lines in London?

Makes me smile.

Tune in tomorrow for “As the World Turns (and I Vomit)”.

Monopoly Money Ship Runs Aground in Greece

4 Comments

Opinion new-logo25By W. R. McAfee, Sr. ______________________________________________ Italy, Ireland, Spain, Portugal are marked —one at a time—for financial mop-ups like Greece ; the idea being they and the world could watch in ‘horror’ while The City siphons the remainder of their financial lives,

bank accounts, savings; this without smugness  from the U.S. whose taxes fall, oh, about a trillion short of interest payments annually on the $18 trillion these financial jackals have run up with America’s corrupt politicians and ‘officials’.

Only difference in U.S. and Greece is the scale.

Curiously, communist Russia (alleged fall was crafted) was not among the marked. Not so curious when a brief scan of history reveals The City’s bankers bankrolled communism through their Bolshevik takeover of the Russian revolution at a cost of some 60 million mostly white Russian Christian lives.

Hear about that in your history classes?

I didn’t either.

Then Gore invented the Internet.

The bankers slip front men into key financial positions in financially teetering countries.

Read somewhere Greece’s finance minister resigned. Didn’t Goldman Sachs work a profit deal with him to spiff up his books?

Wonder if Goldman has any advisors in the White House ?

Foreclosure processes on nations’ resources (collateral for the bankers) kick-in when countries can’t pay interest on tipping-point loans that banks steered them to by shoveling generous paper “loans” at corrupt government officials and politicians. When a nation tips, its resources are commandeered or sold off to front companies and corporations controlled by the same bankers that lent them the money. They’re already pick at Greece’s bones. It’s an age-old high stakes financial scam begun by a small handful of banking family patriarchs several centuries ago that’s updated each century as technologies enable new methods of theft.

The current crop of not-so-bright but enormously greedy and corrupt politicians and government officials around the globe who drank deeply from central bank troughs, and who counted on not being around (or alive) when it came time to pay their financial fiddlers, suddenly found themselves in the banker’s noose while they were still in office and around and there was nowhere for these bilge rats to run—unintended justice, perhaps, as the financial chaos begins to unfold. Investors and speculators (not connected to The City’s  cabal) holding financial instruments in marked countries have haircuts coming.

But, there’s this troubling aspect of Iceland who told these monopoly money masters—who’re use to running around the globe with handfuls of fiat cash after deliberately indebting nations through corrupt government officials and politicians; buying up gold, silver (real value, real money) and other hard assets (prime land)—what they could do with their debt; even threw a few in prison.

And now comes these pesky Greeks with their 2650 year old drachma who’ve said “no mas. . . we’ll try it without your foot on our necks.”.

Financial speak this all you want, but in the end it’s about control of ourselves, or the bankers controlling us. Which is why the founders drew the road map for America’s financial journey the way they did; that congress was the only body authorized by the Constitution to coin [print] the nation’s currency.

For a reason.

They’d observed these thieves at work in Europe and England and had them foremost in mind as they wrote the Constitution—still valid and the greatest governing document ever written regardless of pimp blather fed the public by the banker-owned media and sycophants in Washington. Obama—like B-II, Clinton, B-I, the peanut farmer, et al—are simply vetted front-man for these bankers’ who’ve kept their global financial agenda afloat in America for the last century; assassinating three presidents (Kennedy, Garfield, Lincoln) and a Congressman (McFadden) along the way who opposed a central bank by these bankers.

They also attempted to assassinate a sitting President (Andrew Jackson) who threw the central bank out of America during the early 1830’s, and an ex-president who was running for the office again (T. Roosevelt) on an in dependent ticket in the early 1900’s, and who was on record as saying “. . . America should handle its own money and financial affairs.”

Congressman Louis T. McFadden , the most knowledgeable congressman about the central bank in Washington last century, brought formal charges against the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve Bank system, The Comptroller of the Currency, and the Secretary of United States Treasury on May 23, 1933, for criminal acts that included conspiracy, fraud, unlawful conversion, and treason.

The bankers began trying to assassinate McFadden. The first attempt came when two shots were fired at him from ambush when he stepped from a cab in front of a Capital hotel. Both missed. Then he was poisoned after eating food at a political banquet in Washington. A physician friend at the banquet saved his life. Finally, , on Oct. 3, 1936, he “. . .died suddenly of heart after a ‘dose’ of ‘intestinal flu.’”

It was Woodrow Wilson and a handful of corrupt congressmen, though, who doomed America financially when they sold their souls and country to these financial demons in 1913 and allowed them a 100-year charter to set up a central bank (The Fed) to print America’s money for the cost of paper, ink and press time; then sell it to the nation at face value and perpetual interest; this, in Wilson’s case, in exchange for the bankers financing his run for—and guaranteeing—him the presidency.

America’s government-controlled resources were put up as collateral for these loans. Ft. Knox is empty. Gold transfers to England for “debt” payments in the billions floated by the bankers’ European central banks back through America’s Fed for payment in gold, began the first part of last century once the Fed was established.

Variations of the central bank scam ‘model’ have been duplicated worldwide by the bankers in some 150 other nations; all “legitimized” by government officials and politicians and inside confederates; nations that now find themselves in similar financial boats hemorrhaging red ink.

You go, Iceland.

God speed, Greece

Buy your own printing presses, print your own money, put it in your independent treasuries, keep it under lock and key, turn away foreign bankers, and use the fruits of your own labors like God intended.

The government incurs a trillion dollar increase in the National Debt annually to spend money it does not have so congress-critters can fund pork barrel projects back home and get reelected. Is theft from the public by inflation for the “freebies” the end of the scam?? Not hardly.

06b0e53c-d69d-11e3-bfaa-12313d1c3a13-mediumFor congress to get the book entry money created on the government’s bank account, the Treasury Department must send a Treasury security to the FRBNY. Then the FR will honor checks on the account and the fiat money is added to the economic system (inflation occurs).

But what happens to the security received by the FRBNY (as collateral for a loan) ?? Why, the bank auctions it off to the Primary Dealers and pretends it has been done by the Treasury Department. The funds go to the FRBNY.

Dear congress-critter,

TRUTHOUT website documents the control Goldman Sachs has acquired over European nations by financial indebtedness using various scams resulting in imposed austerity: Infiltration of the U.S. government is also presented. Austerity  measures in the U.S. are already being discussed.
A link to an article identifying the IMF and the World Bank (operatives of Wall Street) as the largest sources of world poverty should be of interest. The IMF and World Bank rely upon the CIA to impose their exploitation upon indigenous citizens. Ref. KILLING HOPE by William Blum; CONFESSION OF an      ECONOMIC HIT MAN by John Perkins.

That the CIA is the operating arm of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) should be obvious. The     government has no financial gain from the above mentioned exploitation.  Numerous nefarious acts of the CIA operating against the best interests of  the U.S. including war-mongering and assassination have been alleged. The U.S. military is used to squelch any resistance. More

H.R. 3778: More crap from CRAPitol Hill

 ___________________________________________________

In what is clearly another of those actions meant to deceive the public into thinking someone in the District of Criminals is actually trying to accomplish something meaningful, comes this bill regarding raising the debt ceiling.  A cursory read may make you think the intent is to prevent raising the ceiling, thereby preventing an increase in the overall national debt.  We could only hope!  Unfortunately, this bill H.R. 3778, is simply a tactic used to make it appear that (in this particular case) the Republicans are really, really serious about stopping the mindless spending that they themselves have contributed to right along with the Democrats.

Take a closer look.  You’ll see this bill has nothing to do with limiting federal spending.

Washington, D.C. newspaper The Hill is reporting:

“Rep. Doug Lamborn (R-Colo.) on Wednesday introduced a bill that would prevent Congress from considering an increase in the debt ceiling unless both the House and Senate have approved a concurrent budget resolution, something the Senate has not done in nearly three years.”

Lamborn said his bill would at least require a budget to be in place before these debt ceiling increases can occur.

“Today I have introduced a bill to stop this madness,” he said on the floor. “The Budget Before Borrowing Act,” H.R. 3778, is a straightforward, no-gimmicks approach to spending money. It very simply says that the nation cannot raise the debt ceiling limit unless the House and the Senate have agreed on a budget resolution.”

OPINION

People who’ve paid attention to financial events of late are seeing the financial curtain rising on the final act of the greatest theft the world has ever known. It began when:

  • (1)America’s treasury vaults were emptied by Wall Street’s thieves and their politically-appointed government confederates, and
  • (2) the subsequent start-up of the fed’s money presses to the tune of—What? $20, $25 trillion now that has gone onto the American taxpayer’s tab?

All this to pay for the deliberate financial devastation the bankers caused worldwide by insuring and selling worthless Wall-Street-stamped, genuine Triple AAA-rated derivatives/CDSs/mortgage bundles to the rest of the world; knowing the banks and funds that bought them would be stuck with these ‘moral hazard’ assets; thus placing themselves in vulnerable financial positions; ripe pickings for later takeovers, consolidation, closures.

Did I mention the companies that insured the bundles would also take a bath?

All of this might have been avoided if our elected puppets had not given up America’s Constitutional right to print our own money to English-backed bankers in 1913.  Our founders, knowing about the Rothschild banking operations in London—it’s estimated they now control an estimated two-thirds of the world’s money—had deliberately written into our Constitution that congress was the only body authorized to coin [read: print] and issue America’s money.

How I would cut federal spending, or: We should have insisted they shut the federal government down

“Now see how easy that was?  I just saved us almost 213 billion for just this year alone which is just about 2.3 times the amount in historically fictional savings Obama and the Republi-crats claimed that are really of no benefit at all. “

__________________________________________ 

The waste, fraud and corruption in our federal government established over decades via career politicians and faux political party’s has brought our country to the brink of disaster.  The recent threat of a government shutdown over contrived budget differences was a golden opportunity to stop the corporately controlled machine that is killing us.  This should not have been a matter of preventing a shutdown…..we should have insisted they shut down.  And then we should have stepped up, cleaned house (and senate) and used this opportunity to rid ourselves of these prevaricator’s, thieves, charlatans…. corporate lackey’s all of them, and started over. 

After viewing the political trickery sold to the public as “spending cuts of historic proportions”, I decided to write my own list of REAL spending cuts that would benefit us all.  I believe I can save the country more than a measly 78 or 84 billion in pretended cuts put out by the Repli-crats.

This is my seven step plan that would save us billions just this year and help stem the flow of the surveillance state being planned for us by the Repuli-crats.  It would also be the beginning of defunding of federal corporate agencies which are a threat to our nation. More

____________________________________________

The federal government claims the debt is $14.3 trillion dollars, but other economists say the US debt is closer to $200 trillion (based on projected revenue and projected spending).  Either way, a $38 billion budget reduction makes no difference.  Especially when the federal government’s actual spending will decrease by a mere $352 million compared to last year- as reported by the National Journal:

“The astonishing result, according to CBO, is due to several factors: increases in spending included in the deal, especially at the Defense Department; decisions to draw over half of the savings from rescissions, which are funds previously authorized but not spent; cuts to reserve funds; and to mandatory-spending programs, such as certain farm subsidies.”

Here is a sample of some of the so-called budget cuts:

1.  Department of Defense budget-

The DoD’s budget for 2010 was $685 billion, including the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, according to WikipediaObama called for a reduction in the DoD budget by $400 billion….over 12 years, which averages out to $33 billion a year. This cut is still pending a Pentagon review which leaves Obama with some wiggle room. Compare the money that the US spends on military industrial corporate welfare and illegal wars to China, with the second largest military expenditure, in the amount of $150 billion.

Who is the DoD’s real enemy?  It appears to be the American taxpayer and the US economy. More

At the end of the month or year, many of us must look at our individual budgets and sigh. Again due to rising food, fuel, tax increases, or just the general cost of surviving we must “create” more money. We comb through the tangible assets we have and determine which are essential for our continued effort to stay afloat as it were. Maybe Grandma’s silver Tea Pot goes up on EBay, those books one would never part with go on Amazon, and Craigslist becomes our second job.

We cut expenses.

Instead of driving through the inevitable “easy” meal of fast food – we learn that Mac N Cheese from a box isn’t so difficult.

Department Stores become a thing of the past as we comb through second-hand shops to find a “retro” outfit or learn to hem and modify what we have.

Maybe we consider putting in a Garden instead of stopping by the produce department for our thrice weekly sales. More

The Value Added Tax: A Hidden New Tax to Finance Much Bigger Government

Leave a comment

Although I totally disagree with this man’s description of Social Security as an “entitlement” program, attempting to paint it as some form of welfare, the remainder of his assessment is quite accurate. 

The greatest unfunded libaility we have is the federal government…the same government which has stolen and estimated 3 trillion from Social Security since the Johnson administration.  It becomes “unfunded” because they have no way and never intended to pay it back without turning yet again, to the working class to replenish the theft of  FICA taxes invested in Social Security. 

Social Security becomes a “liability” when the funds stolen exceed those coming in; a threshold we will reach in 2035. 

FED votes to spend $10billion buying government debt

D o w n s i z e r – D i s p a t c h

Sadly, the Fed has taken a step that will make things even worse. The Fed board voted on Tuesday to spend $10 billion buying government debt.

Just to be clear, it does NOT appear that the Fed is creating new funny money for this purpose. Rather, it has received some income on some of the “toxic” assets it purchased, and is using that money to buy government debt. Even so, this sends a bad message on several fronts. The Fed is . . .

* Signaling that it will not begin re-absorbing its funny money any time soon
* Trying to make it cheaper for the Federal government to borrow money, thereby encouraging more borrowing
* One small step away from doing something very bad — creating new funny money to buy government debt More

Already, there is much speculation that Social Security will be one of the big targets.

U S Austerity Necessary to Prevent Hyperinflation

“However, rather than let Americans eat cheap food, our government compounded problems by enacting the Agricultural Adjustment Act, which paid farmers to destroy their crops in an attempt to artificially raise agriculture prices. This led to millions of Americans overpaying for food and nearly starving to death.”________________

 In NIA’s latest economic documentary ‘Meltup’, we said that the simple act of the U.S. government eliminating its $7.25 per hour minimum wage and implementing a new $7.25 per hour maximum wage for government employees, would go a long way in helping rebalance America’s unstable economy.

Dear Sen. Klobuchar….Neil (the mad orator) has a few questions for you

Leave a comment

Should somebody lock me up soon?

Senator Klobuchar,                                                                                                                                                                                                                         2/11/09

I see that you voted for the monstrous spending bill “American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009” yesterday & it is my understanding that e-verify was not allowed to be added to the bill. I am very disappointed, both with the dollar amount & that e-verify was not part of this bill. I have 6 very serious questions to ask:

1)      Why did the Senate (you) not require that e-verify be part of the final Senate version of this Stimulus Bill, when saving & creating jobs is the #1 priority at the present time?

2)      What was magical to you about meeting the $800 billion dollar figure required for this bill (why not the $400 billion level proposed by Senator McCain or why not use a trillion dollar figure)?

3)      Is it your belief that our government can spend our way out of this major economic meltdown?

4)      Do you believe that it is the long term goal of the Federal government to have all the “responsible” people in our Country pay the way/reward the greedy & irresponsible living here (to make them whole again – with no debt or losses)? Where the Govt. guarantees in good times or bad, no business small or large will ever fail again. Where every responsible or irresponsible, legal or illegal citizen in this Country is entitled to anything they want & our Government should find somebody or some group of people to pay for it.

5)      Do you think there is a “point of no return” on taxpayer bailout & stimulus money that our Federal Government is willing to spend (where our credit dries up globally & the U.S. dollar becomes totally worthless)?

6)      Is there a point in time, or a dollar amount where you will personally say “enough is enough, we just can’t keep piling all this debt onto our kids & grandkids? Where you actually break ranks with the President & your party & say that all we are really doing here is creating another bubble down the road for someone else to deal with?

I thank you in advance for taking my questions seriously; I look forward to your responses.

Bush.  No one can say anything good about his accomplishments while in office and this includes Republicans who are loyal to him.  This is because everything George Bush did was to the detriment of the people of this Nation and to the rest of the world.  As a President, he was a total failure and he deliberately worked to destroy everything that was right about our Nation and its government.  This includes:

 

·     Turning the office of the President into a dictatorship

·     Tightening the New World Orders grip upon our Nation

·     Increasing government secrecy

·     Opening the revolving door between corporations and government agencies

·     Reducing the effectiveness of and politicizing all government agencies

·     Increased the national debt bringing the Nation to the brink of bankruptcy

·     Broke down the wall between the separation between church and state

·     Wrongfully rewrote legislation through the use of signing statements

·     Wrongfully rewrote legislation through the use of executive orders

·     Worked to eliminate checks and balances in government

·     Eliminated citizen rights including inalienable ones

·     Introduced torture as a legitimate tool of government

·     Broke treaties and ignored international law

·     Lied to the American people about everything

·     Established an illegal prison system outside our borders

·     Wrongfully invaded a weak foreign nation on a lie

·     Failed to prevent 9/11 and is remiss in fighting the war on terror

·     Mishandled the Katrina disaster

·     Etc., etc., etc., ad nauseum

No, George Bush did nothing good for America and nothing good for the world.  While in office, his actions were undertaken solely for the benefit of our New World Order masters and the corporate executives who hold him firmly in their pockets.  In the final analysis, the ultimate irony of this is that what he wrought is not even beneficial to these Fascists because the destruction of our environment and the collapse of our economic system benefits no one including the demented criminals of the New World Order.  Indeed, America is ready for change but it goes far beyond just being ready because George Bush has driven a dagger into the very heart of what America is supposed to be and if his actions are not reversed, the American experiment in Republican Democracy is definitely over.

Enter Barack Obama into the picture!  What a breath of fresh air this man brings to the Presidency.  He is intelligent, articulate, handsome, and dedicated to his beautiful family.  Beyond this, he honestly wants to be a President for all Americans including those who do not have six figure incomes.  Furthermore, he is black and the vast majority of us living today never thought we would see the day when a black man would be elected as our President.  Americans should be proud that we are mature enough to look past the color of a man’s skin and judge a person based upon the character and abilities he has to offer in the service of his country.  Truly, Barack Obama has already changed America by the very act of being elected and to further succeed all he has to do reverse and not do what George Bush did.  The real issue is how committed he really is to doing this?

Barack Obama is our President because he promised to bring about “change” and the areas he intends to concentrate his efforts on are the economy, Iraq, and health care.  Anyone who owns a television knows this is the case and certainly a majority of us are in favor of changes in these areas.  This is all well and good as far as it goes, but the reality of our situation is such that it doesn’t go very far and the truth of the matter is that we really know very little about what Barack Obama will actually do when he takes office.  This is the problem with electing a populist President.  He makes you feel good and proud to be an American and there is certainly something to be said for this, but substance and perceptions are two different things and it is substance that makes or breaks a presidency.

Like most Americans, I was overjoyed when Barack Obama was elected President, but I had reservations because he is a member of one of our two dominating political parties.  To be sure, our electoral process boils down to the party seeking power trying to convince people that they will solve the problems created by the party still in power.  But the real truth, which most Americans do not understand, is that we are where we are today because both political parties collaborated and cooperated to get us here.  Eight years is not time enough to entirely change where our Nation is heading, so it stands to reason that our hijacked ship of state is on a course determined by its equally culpable co-captains; the Republicans and Democrats in keeping with the wishes and mandates of our New World Order masters.  Therefore, while Barack Obama focused his entire campaign upon change, a prudent citizen is more than justified in wondering just how committed to change Barack Obama really is.  While no one can make this determination with definitive certainty, enough information is available to make a reasonable determination as to what he will and will not do.

First Steps in Reducing the Deficit and Bringing Down the High Cost Of Corrupt Government

Leave a comment

I get emails from people almost every day asking me how I think we could reduce the deficit, and in turn reduce the national debt.  I’ve thought about this alot and here is where I think we should start:

1.  End all C.O.L.A. raises for federal employees of any kind.  Put them on a merit system…..you don’t work efficiently and produce accordingly…….you don’t profit! Keep in mind that the Federal government is now the single largest employer in the U.S> 

2.  End all Golden Fleece medical insurance programs for congress.  These people make enough each year to well afford to pay for their own insurance…….after all….they claim that people making minimum wage should be able to afford it.

3.  Reduce the massive and excessive White House Staff.

4.  End limo services, private planes and jets, and their maintenance costs including personnel costs.  Anyone who believes they are so important they must have these services obviously have the funds to afford them, themselves.

5.  End the retirement plan for congress.  There is no reason congress should be afforded retirement packages at taxpayer expense.  Again, they make enough to provide retirement for themselves. The idea that a representative or senator is still eligible for retirement payments even if they are charged with a crime or corruption is so incredible I can hardly stand it.  And why should their spouses be paid 2/3 of that amount just because they were married to them?  Can you imagine your employer paying your spouse a retirement payment just becasue you worked for them?  I thought not.

6.  End “Entertainment” expenses for congress.  No one pays for your entertainment, do they?  They can entertain in those offices we pay for.

7.  End corporate subsidies.

8.  Cut budgets to all Federal agenices by 10% off the top, and eliminate overstaffing.

9.  Discontinue the funding to the 11 Federal agencies that use unsupported (made up) documentation to cover the disappearance of funds.  Start with the Pentagon which has lost 2.7 trillion so far this year and doesn’t know where it went.

10. End congress’s ability to vote itself raises whenever it chooses to.  Make all raises subject to voter referendum.

These are my top ten.  I believe in starting at the top when trying to correct a problem.  The people at the top are the decision makers, the law givers, the political royalty who have come to think that the American people should afford them a lifestyle they firmly believe they are entitled to.  I don’t believe they are.

These ten items, if implemented could save the US taxpayer a billion or so each year.  It might also make those gods and goddesses in D.C. rethink their oaths of office and work a little harder for the American people rather than against them.

In all likelyhood, implementing these ideas would probably result in a mass exit from political office as one politician after another declared that he/she needed to spend more time with their families.  These would be the same families who are provided special accomodations in our capital so that they can visit with the “working” politician.  Does your employer provide accomodations for your family to visit you while you work?  I didn’t think so. 

These are just my thoughts.  Let me know yours.

What Else do You Need For Proof?

Leave a comment

Today, while warnings continue regarding the breaching of levee’s in at least 37 different locations along the Mississippi and affecting several states, congress took it upon itself to pass the FISA bill allowing the spy agencies to spy without warrant or reason on any American citizen.  I not only question the constitutional legality of this law, but also, the timing of its passage. 

While the Midwest sinks under water and the agricultural heartland of the country is declared a national disaster, congress could only muster enough interest to pass yet another invasive and intrusive law guaranteed to give the federal government and all its spy agencies the right to declare a surveillance war on the people of the United States.  And like the compliant sheeple we have become, few of us will complain.  After all, we have to be tough on those terrorists.

The neo-con snarks that operate inside the beltway are declaring some kind of victory over grassroots movements who aggressively opposed the communistic FISA bill.  Obviously, some people are just so clueless that it never occurs to them that they will be spyed on too.  They don’t worry though, because they haven’t done anything wrong so they don’t mind having their privacy invaded or their rights erroded.  Personally, it is exactly because I haven’t done anything wrong that I do mind. 

And while this victory dance by neo-cons continues, thousands of acres of grain crops are being washed away and people in those areas are scrambling to save what they can of personal possessions before the water takes even those and makes their homes uninhabitable. 

Considering this nightmare and the coming impact on food supplies that will result…..wouldn’t you have thought that our congress would have been focused on the long term affects?  Maybe instead of passing legislation that is so Anti-American and giving the New World Order another open door to step through…….maybe they might have spent their time more affectively, more beneficially by trying to secure food that is going to be in short supply as a result of these floods?  But, no.  It is apparently far more important to pass legislation against America’s people than it is to prepare for a food shortage to make sure they can eat.

Maybe another line they could have pursued is why billions have been dumped into the Army Corps of Engineers over the years, and yet these levee’s are failing.  Our infrastructure is allowed to deteriorate to the point where privatization seems the only way out.  In order to make this appealing, the infrastructure must be allowed not only to deteriorate, but also to devolve into such a state of disrepair, to become such a threat to the survival of the population that people are begging for help and will take it from where ever it seems to be coming from.  This is especially effective when those begging to be helped are swimming past their homes. 

Maybe instead of spending billions and billions on unwinnable wars of aggression, or subsidizing and crediting huge oil cartels for raping the American public, or giving tax cuts to people that are obscenely wealthy and who have no allegiance or loyalty to this country……maybe congress could have spent some time on figuring out how to shore up our infrastructure.  But doing that might have presented a future obstacle to selling off sovereign land and constructed infrastructure to foreign corporations and investors and private investors here at home.

So the Midwest floods and drowns and floats away along with future food sources and congress fiddles while the water rises.  If today in congress did not give you the proof you need that our government on almost all levels is dysfunctional and no longer concerned with those it is supposed to represent, I don’t know what will. 

Congress has asked for 200 billion for flood damage costs.  How nice.  Another 200 billion on top of the 10 trillion we already have in national debt…….and where will this money be borrowed from?  And what will the government use as collateral on this new debt?  The land that is currently under water? 

The floods are a national disaster for many reasons, but congress is also a national disaster that needs tending to.  These people have to go.  We need to implement term limits for all elected officials and appointee’s.  That would include the court appointee’s right up and through the Supremes.  No one in our government should be allowed to make a career out of politics.  It’s not conducive to good government. 

My heart goes out to my neighbors and friends and family here in the Midwest who are losing everything in these floods.  I just think its unfortunate that the Potomac doesn’t do us all a favor and breach its banks.
