The Essential Rules Of Tyranny

July 30, 2011
By Brandon Smith

As we look back on the horrors of the dictatorships and autocracies of the past, one particular question consistently arises; how was it possible for the common men of these eras to NOT notice what was happening around them? How could they have stood as statues unaware or uncaring as their cultures were overrun by fascism, communism, collectivism, and elitism? Of course, we have the advantage of hindsight, and are able to research and examine the misdeeds of the past at our leisure. Unfortunately, such hindsight does not necessarily shield us from the long cast shadow of tyranny in our own day. For that, the increasingly uncommon gift of foresight is required…

At bottom, the success of despotic governments and Big Brother societies hinges upon a certain number of political, financial, and cultural developments. The first of which is an unwillingness in the general populace to secure and defend their own freedoms, making them completely reliant on corrupt establishment leadership. For totalitarianism to take hold, the masses must not only neglect the plight of their country, and the plight of others, but also be completely uninformed of the inherent indirect threats to their personal safety. They must abandon all responsibility for their destinies, and lose all respect for their own humanity. They must, indeed, become domesticated and mindless herd animals without regard for anything except their fleeting momentary desires for entertainment and short term survival. For a lumbering bloodthirsty behemoth to actually sneak up on you, you have to be pretty damnably oblivious.

The prevalence of apathy and ignorance sets the stage for the slow and highly deliberate process of centralization. Once dishonest governments accomplish an atmosphere of inaction and condition a sense of frailty within the citizenry, the sky is truly the limit. However, a murderous power-monger’s day is never quite done. In my recent article ‘The Essential Rules of Liberty’ we explored the fundamentally unassailable actions and mental preparations required to ensure the continuance of a free society. In this article, let’s examine the frequently wielded tools of tyrants in their invariably insane quests for total control… Read More

Ron Paul & Rand Paul On The Debt Ceiling Theatre

July 30, 2011Fox News

The Senator and the Congressman join Cavuto to discuss the reality behind the theatrics surrounding the debt crisis.

Washington...Theatre of Absurd

US debt drama enters theatre of absurd

July 30, 2011
By Jurek Martin in Washington

You go to the cinema or the theatre to see the stars perform. What happened on Thursday in the US House of Representatives was that hardly any of them turned up, the real drama was all offstage and the play never got to the final act. No wonder the national audience wants its money back.

Rarely has Washington’s theatre of the absurd been seen in such sharp relief as in the “debate” over Speaker John Boehner’s bill to cut spending enough to raise the debt ceiling for a few miserly months. Amid sound and fury signifying little and with the mercury over 100 degrees, the bill eventually passed yesterday afternoon after a balanced budget amendment was added to entice Tea Party supporters, 22 of whom still voted against. But it was quickly knocked back in the Senate. Posturing in Washington, sometimes known as the “optics”, is now a minor art form.

It wasn’t even a debate in the widely understood meaning of the word. The chamber was practically empty throughout, apart from the army of clerks, the poor bearded backbencher assigned to wield the Speaker’s gavel and the handfuls of congressmen from both parties designated to address the debt-ceiling issue because they serve on certain committees.

Total abandonment of leadership in Washington

"Playing chicken with the nation: The U.S. debt ceiling fiasco and the total abandonment of leadership in Washington"

July 29, 2011
By Mike Adams

(NaturalNews) For the last few decades, it all seemed so simple for the USA: We'll spend other people's money, and when we run out, we'll just borrow from yet more people. It worked for a while... until all those "other people" (foreign central banks) got sick of buying U.S. debt. So lately, Ben Bernanke, Tim Geithner and other arsonists at the Federal Reserve have simply been counterfeiting new money instead: A whopping $16 trillion of it in just the last couple of years.

How much money is $16 trillion? Here's a great visualization of a similar mount ($15 trillion) that really drives the point home:

Now, every time the U.S. government needs more money to prevent itself from going into a total financial collapse, it turns to the Federal Reserve which simply print more money and hands it over to the government in exchange for IOUs (debt), meaning that the Fed creates money for FREE, and then the taxpayers owe it the same amount of money it just created. Huh? Yeah, it's like that.

But that's not even the real theft issue here. By printing all this money and injecting it into the circulating money supply, the Fed devalues all the current dollars in circulation while eroding the value of the dollar-denominated paycheck you're receiving, too. So all the money you worked for and saved is being stolen by the Fed through dollar devaluation coupled with the fact that you the taxpayer now OWE the Fed trillions more! (A double theft scam. They steal your money twice!)

Why Washington loves to steal your money

In Washington, our so-called "leaders" are not even negotiating a way to end this system. They love the fiat currency / Federal Reserve / counterfeit money machine system! It's what keeps all politicians popular: Simply print more money, then spend it on their favorite pork projects while claiming to be bringing "jobs" to their local states and districts. Every corrupt government needs an unlimited stream of money (created out of nothing) in order to stay in power through perpetual spending. This is why corrupt governments always -- ALWAYS -- abandon the gold standard (which limits the creation of new money).

That's why Boehner, Reid, Obama and others aren't even talking about the commonsense idea of, "Hey, how do we STOP being financially burdened by this whole system?"

The answer, of course, is actually quite simple. Ron Paul already suggested it when he said, "We simply write off all the debt to the Fed." Cancel those IOUs and let the Fed eat the loss for a change. The Fed created all that money out of nothing anyway... why should we "pay it back?" Doesn't even make sense.

Better yet, as Ron Paul has suggested, what we really need to do is end the Fed and put control of the money supply back into the hands of Congress as it was before 1913 (the year the Fed was created, which started a century of looting of the U.S. economy by global banksters).

The Federal Reserve, you see, is a criminal gang of international money thieves who are now engineering a total economic collapse of the USA. This has been their plan from the very start, of course. Read "The Creature From Jeckyll Island" by Ed Griffin ( to learn some rather shocking details about the origins of the Fed and why it always intended to suck the money out of this nation.

Or watch this amazing animation film, The American Dream at:

The parasites who are destroying our financial future

Globalist bankers are parasites on society, and if you give them control over your money supply, they will always find a way to loot your economy and drain the value of your currency. They've done it dozens of times throughout world history, and now their plot to destroy America's currency is nearly complete.

As Ron Paul has accurately stated, we are already in default. The only question now is HOW we're going to experience the total financial blowout of the nation. There are essentially two options:

Option #1) Stop sending government checks. The government goes into total default and simply collapses because it stops paying all government salaries, too. This option is not likely because option #2 is so much more devious and satisfying for control freak bureaucrats.

Option #2) Keep sending out all the checks, but devalue them by printing more money under the table. This option will keep the government in business for a while longer, thereby protecting the cushy jobs of all the corrupt bureaucrats running the system. The ultimate effect of this option, however, is unavoidable: Total hyperinflation of the currency.

We are almost certainly going to be dealing with option #2. The crooks in Washington will find a way to keep raising the debt ceiling, keep printing more money, and keep eroding the savings and benefits of all the taxpayers while they oversee the greatest financial collapse in the history of human civilization.

What will happen when the collapse comes?

This outcome is now all but certain. It is only a matter of timing: For how long can they keep printing fiat currency? For how long can they keep eroding the value of the dollar without the people rioting in anger? To extend this time and try to keep things under control, the U.S. government will put troops on the streets, increase the police state surveillance, and do everything in its power to try to stop riots from breaking out.

As I stated on the Alex Jones Show last night (www.PrisonPlanet.TV), if the American people fully realized what was really happening with the Federal Reserve and the money supply, they would be rioting right now! It is only ignorance of the truth that keeps the nation's wage slaves working away in their dimly-lit offices, oblivious to the reality of what is unfolding around them (and how they're being royally ripped off).

From an historical perspective, by the way, we are watching the financial collapse of a great empire. It is happening before our very eyes, in slow motion. We are learning, yet again, what happens when you put a bunch of corrupt socialists in charge of a nation and allow them to confiscate the wages of the workers (social security) and tax the businesses out of existence. The corporate elite, of course, pay virtually no tax (GE, Google, etc.) while the real tax burden is thrust upon all the medium and small businesses where business owners are just barely scraping.

The whole point of this engineered financial collapse (and yes, it is engineered) is to confiscate all the wealth of the working class and concentrate it in the hands of the ultra wealthy elite. It is to leave the working class people destitute, starving, jobless and totally enslaved while the global elite have all the money, all the power and all the control -- even control over the food supply.

Five years ago, such talk would have been considered loony conspiracy fear mongering, but today, virtually everyone can now see it unfolding just as we warned. In Washington right now, the crooks are trying to figure out how to avoid an imminent financial collapse of the government, which could be just a handful of days away.

They will resolve this short-term crisis, by the way. The government won't collapse on August 2nd. But the eventual financial collapse will only be made worse by a higher debt ceiling and the continued out-of-control spending by a government that has long abandoned any real sense of serving the People. This government will not stop its debt addiction until it is forced to stop either through a popular revolt or a total financial collapse (or a military coup, for that matter).

Quartzsite, Arizona: Blueprint For A Police State Takeover

In an uncharacteristically accurate Fox News segment of the show Freedom Watch, it is pointed out that it is “martial law in their town.”

July 28, 2011
Madison Ruppert, End the Lie & Intel Hub

First the town Mayor is forced out of office, then a state of emergency is declared in secret and if matters couldn’t get any worse for the unfortunate townspeople of Quartzsite, the majority of the police force is now being forced to stay in their own homes during working hours.

Nine out of a total of fourteen Quartzsite, Arizona police officers have been suspended, all of which just happened to be whistle blowers who exposed their corrupt police chief.

The Mayor, Ed Foster, was elected on the platform of investigating the corrupt goings-on in the Quartzsite city council. Therefore, it is not quite surprising that they would force out the man who intends to prove them to be criminals.

The city has now become a fascist authoritarian police state with the criminal police chief Jeff Gilbert at the helm.  Read More

Mark Levin gives a history lesson on Nov. 2010

"This is a plan...A PLAN FOR WHAT!!!"


July 27, 2011
The Right Scoop

Levin says it didn’t take 8 months for Republicans to revert back to their old ways with Boehner bullying his caucus to get them behind his plan. Levin decided it was time for a short history lesson, not on the founding fathers, not on Ronald Reagan, but on the landslides of November of 2010 from which the US House was flipped so that Republicans had the majority once again, granted to them by the American people.

Obama's Ineptitude

"Out of his Marxist upbringing, Obama has embraced the doctrine of the end justifies the means, but in his case as a strategy to achieve his egocentric ambitions."

July 27, 2011
By Steve McCann

At a critical time in its history, the country has as its president a man unqualified and unable to lead. Even the left has begun to finally question their allegiance to Barack Obama, and more importantly, his allegiance to them. More Americans, some in the media, are openly asking if the president is a liar, with the word mendacity frequently used in describing his actions. In the debt ceiling debate, he has shown not only his narcissistic side, but his complete lack of principles and indifference to the plight of the American citizens and the future of the country.

Today the United States finds itself adrift on a roiling sea of uncertainty; its economy floundering under the weight of oppressive debt and mismanagement, its status in world affairs at its lowest ebb since the beginning of the 20th century, and its citizens openly questioning the future.

Barack Obama is a man without a core, leaving the ship of state rudderless in the management of foreign affairs and domestic policy, which have spun dangerously out of control over the past two and half years. Read More

A New Deal for America

July 27, 2011
By Dan Greenfield

The New Deal’s bargain was that Americans would trade higher taxes and less economic freedom for a social safety net. That was until the left decided that the social safety net was actually a wealth redistribution platform. The social safety net slid into the welfare state, a program of subsidies for reliable Democratic voters at the expense of the general public.

Now the Social Security Trust Fund has been looted and FDR II is threatening that benefits won’t be paid if congress doesn’t commit to another extended deficit spending binge. Not on behalf of the social safety net, but the nanny and the welfare state.

The Democratic party loves taking credit for the social safety net, but they have proven to be completely irresponsible trustees, squandering the trust by borrowing against the sum, and then borrowing against the debt to fund an entirely separate agenda. What began as security for workers mutated into a bureaucracy that existed for its own sake expanding benefits and spending to bulk up its power and influence. Read More

Obama Strikes Fear Into Americans While Reassuring Big Banks

"Administration hypes depression and collapse if debt deal not reached, tells banks the opposite"

July 27, 2011
By Paul Joseph Watson

While publicly fearmongering about a new great depression, the sun failing to rise, and the sky falling if the debt ceiling is not hiked, the Obama administration has been secretly telling big banks that there’s no chance of a default, echoing how the 2008 bailout was sold on hyped threats and intimidation of lawmakers.

The rhetoric was heightened yesterday when White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer warned that the GOP’s inability to compromise “could potentially put us towards a depression,” adding, “we are seven days away from an unprecedented financial event in this country’s history.”

Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner, who has been busy hyping the inevitability of a default for weeks, again told news shows Sunday that the government would be unable to pay its bills if an agreement is not reached, a talking point that has been enthusiastically parroted by President Obama.

However, that tone doesn’t quite match with what the Obama administration is simultaneously telling top executives at major U.S. banks, assuring them that “such an event won’t happen.” Read More

The pesky neighbor and the debt ceiling

July 26, 2011

Rep. Ron Paul

Imagine you had a pesky neighbor who somehow took out a mortgage on his house in your name and by some legal trickery you were obligated to pay for it. Imagine watching this neighbor throw drunken parties, buy expensive cars, add more rooms to the house, and hire dozens of people to wait on him hand and foot. Imagine that he also managed to take out several credit cards in your name. One by one, he would max them out and then use your good name and credit to obtain another credit card, then another and then another. Read More

Push Back Against FDA Growing

July 26, 2011

By Bernie LaForest and Michael Boldin, TAC

A county assembly in Washington State has just passed a food freedom ordinance which would punish federal agents with up to ten years in prison and $20,000 fines.

On July 20th, the Stevens County Assembly finalized the ordinance. They are now in the process of collecting signatures from the residents of Stevens County – urging them to to claim his/her natural right to grow, produce, purchase, and consume the foods of their choice.

Beyond that, the passed ordinance would make it unlawful for agents of either the State or Federal government to execute laws that interfere with the ordinance.

Already four towns in Maine have passed similar measures, and others around the country have indicated they’re looking at the same. Read More

No longer deniable: Under runaway debt burden, America's currency is headed for total collapse

"The financial blowout of the world's greatest debtor nation"

July 26, 2011

Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner recently told FOX News, "We write 80 million checks a month. There are millions and millions of Americans that depend on those checks coming on time."

That quote, all by itself, tells you just about everything you need to know about what America has become and why it's now headed for certain economic collapse. In a nation that once began with the idea that government should stay out of the way and leave people alone to create their own abundance through hard work and private savings, we now have horrifyingly transformed into a nation of 80 million dependants who need their government checks each month just to survive.

And why does the government "owe" all these people their benefits such as social security? Because the U.S. government confiscated that money from the people by skimming it off their paychecks, year after year, and then promising all the workers they would eventually get that money back.

That was all a Big Government lie, of course. Social Security was the greatest financial con ever perpetrated on the American people. It's really just Big Government saying, "We'll force you to give us your money, and then we'll spend it all, and we'll somehow promise to pay you back someday." Except that for tens of millions of Americans who have paid into social security like me, we are unlikely to ever see a dime of that money because the government is going to financially implode well before we ever reach the benefits age.

Obama Regime intimidating witnesses to keep silent on Fast & Furious

July 26, 2011
Weasel Zippers

Community Organizing 101.

(The Washington Times) — The Obama administration sought to intimidate witnesses into not testifying to Congress on Tuesday about whether ATF knowingly allowed weapons, including assault rifles, to be “walked” into Mexico, the chairman of a House committee investigating the program said in an interview Monday.

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell E. Issa, California Republican, said at least two scheduled witnesses expected to be asked about a controversial weapons investigation known as “Fast and Furious” received warning letters from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to limit their testimony.

Mr. Issa’s committee is set to hear testimony from six current or former ATF employees, including agents and attaches assigned to the bureau’s offices in Mexico, about the operation — in which, federal agents say, they were told to stand down and watch as guns flowed from U.S. dealers in Arizona to violent criminals and drug cartels in Mexico.

The six-term lawmaker aired his concerns about the program in a wide-ranging interview with reporters and editors at The Washington Times on Monday.

Among other questions, the agents are likely to be asked about a large volume of guns showing up in Mexico that were traced back to the Fast and Furious program; whether ATF officials in that country expressed concerns about the weapons to agency officials in the U.S., only to be brushed aside; and whether ATF officials in Arizona denied ATF personnel in Mexico access to information about the operation.

Nearly 50 weapons linked to the Fast and Furious program have been recovered to date in Mexico. Committee investigators said Mexican authorities also were denied information about the operation.

Mr. Issa also said he is certain the Fast and Furious operation was known by most top officials at the Justice Department and that Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. either knew and misled Congress, or was so out of the loop that he’s guilty of mismanagement.

“How is it that the No. 2, 3, 4 at Justice all knew about this program, but the No. 1 didn’t?” Mr. Issa said. “Is it because he said ‘don’t tell me’? Is it because they knew what they were doing is wrong, and they were protecting their boss? Or is it that Eric Holder is just so disconnected. . . ?

“Whichever it is — he knew and he’s lied to Congress, or he didn’t know, and he’s so detached that he wasn’t doing his job — that really probably is for the administration to make a decision on, sooner not later,” Mr. Issa said. Read More

New polls confirm Obama’s Democratic base crumbles


July 26, 2011
LA Times

Republicans have their own poll problems in some areas. But even without an identified GOP presidential alternative, we’ve had a plethora of recent polls showing Obama’s fading job approval, especially on the economy.

Now, comes a new ABC News/Washington Post poll with a whole harvest of revelations, among them, strong indications that Obama’s liberal base is starting to crumble. Among the nuggets:

Despite those hundreds of billions of blown stimulus dollars and almost as many upturn promises from Joe Biden, 82% of Americans still say their job market is struggling. Ninety percent rate the economy negatively, including half who give it the worst rating of “poor.”

Are You Better Off Today Than Jan. 20, 2009?

A slim 15% claim to be “getting ahead financially,” half what it was in 2006. Fully 27% say they’re falling behind financially. That’s up 6 points since February.

A significant majority (54%) says they’ve been forced to change their lifestyle significantly as a result of the economic times — and 60% of them are angry, up from 44%.  Read More

Coal mine owner from Jasper had heard enough

‘Right Out of Atlas Shrugged’: Hear an Exasperated Alabama Businessman Tell the Feds – ‘I’m Just Quitting’

July 26, 2011
The Blaze

Ronnie Bryant was vastly outnumbered.

Leaning against a wall during a recent Birmingham, Alabama, public hearing, Bryant listened to an overflow crowd pepper federal officials with concerns about businesses polluting the drinking water and causing cases of cancer.

After two hours, Bryant—a coal mine owner from Jasper—had heard enough and, in a moment being described as “right out of Atlas Shrugged,” took his turn at the microphone:

“Nearly every day without fail…men stream to these [mining] operations looking for work in Walker County. They can’t pay their mortgage. They can’t pay their car note. They can’t feed their families. They don’t have health insurance. And as I stand here today, I just…you know…what’s the use? I got a permit to open up an underground coal mine that would employ probably 125 people. They’d be paid wages from $50,000 to $150,000 a year. We would consume probably $50 million to $60 million in consumables a year, putting more men to work. And my only idea today is to go home. What’s the use? I see these guys—I see them with tears in their eyes—looking for work. And if there’s so much opposition to these guys making a living, I feel like there’s no need in me putting out the effort to provide work for them. So…basically what I’ve decided is not to open the mine. I’m just quitting. Thank you.”

“If they want to create jobs, provide health insurance, and increase revenue,” Bryant said in reference to the federal government, “they need to back down on the regulatory burden. It’s like pulling an iron ball with a chain. I’m not saying to make it go away—just the stuff that’s not pertinent or useful.” Read More

A Candid Interview With Beelzebub T. McGlobalist

July 23, 2011
By Brandon Smith

Special Note: This is a parody…obviously, though the attitudes and responses portrayed are unfortunately based on expressions of common real-life gobalists. Enjoy…

The following is a very special interview with Beelzebub T. McGlobalist, the foremost representative of the incorporated organization of global bankers, political frontmen, and think-tank propagandists that make up such popular and exclusive clubs as the Council on Foreign Relations, the Bilderberg Group, and the G20. With financial centralization and subsequent iron fisted autocracy on the rise, we thought it would be fun and possibly even titillating for our readers to hear straight from the horse’s mouth what lies in store for us, the lowly peon pond scum of the Earth, in the near future. Numerous alternative analysts have calculated likely outcomes of social and economic destabilization in the wake of engineered collapse, however, we thought it best to go directly to the source, and ask those who actually created the framework for catastrophe that waits ahead. This is a no-holds-barred look at globalization. Won’t you join us…?

Alt-Market: Good day, Mr. McGlobalist. Thank you for agreeing to this interview on such short notice.

McGlobalist: Yes, we sometimes feel it necessary to put in a little face time with “cannon fodder” like you, even though I personally find the very idea of your existence rather distasteful…

Alt-Market: Ok…….Is it alright if I call you T-Bub?

McGlobalist: Sure, that’s what Kissinger calls me…that, or “Sugar Pants”…

Alt-Market: Umm, let’s stick with T-Bub.

McGlobalist: Very well…

Alt-Market: T-Bub, it has been openly admitted by you and your associates in the IMF that your ultimate goal is the dissolution of sovereign state economies and political frameworks. You also admittedly desire to restructure those economies and governments into a single centralized financial system and a single supranational governing body. Is it just a coincidence that the ongoing global debt crisis and the subsequent devaluation of the Dollar and the Euro are pushing us towards that exact scenario, or did you “help things along”?

McGlobalist: Are you kidding?! Of course we helped things along! You think that international banks like Goldman Sachs or JP Morgan could possibly participate in a massive securities fraud like that of the derivatives bubble WITHOUT the complicity of Central Banks around the world, not to mention regulatory agencies like the SEC? I mean, we created such levels of bad debt it’s mathematically unfeasible to calculate it! You can’t hide that much financial toxicity for years on end unless ratings agencies, government oversight institutions, and the Federal Reserve itself, allow you to do so. Luckily, the average American wants to believe its all some “crazy mistake” or the “stupidity of politicians”. It’s easier for people to believe in random coincidence than to believe their world has been turned upside down on purpose. How do you think global elitists like myself have survived for so long?

Alt-Market: So then, if you already have your greasy hands wrapped around most of these institutions, why deliberately cause them to collapse?

McGlobalist: Psychology, my boy. Psychology. It’s not enough to force people to accept centralization, or even to trick them into believing it doesn’t exist. Eventually, you have to make them ASK for centralization. They have to believe that it was their decision all along to relinquish their sovereignty. Nation states have served their purpose. Now, we feel its time to shed them like so much dead skin and move on. Think about it! We create a problem, then, we offer a predetermined solution which the peasants automatically cling to because most of them are too apathetic to help their own situation. When they finally realize how much they have lost in the process, the only culprits they have left to single out for blame are themselves. In the meantime, we can sit back and relax in relative obscurity. Elitists have been playing this game for centuries. I’m amazed that you people haven’t caught on yet. It’s the freaken’ digital age for crying out loud!

Alt-Market: Good point. But, what about those who say your plans are not for the good of the citizenry but actually a brazenly insane attempt to satisfy your own hubris?

McGlobalist: I just ordered a huge plate of barbequed ribs, you want any…?

Alt-Market: ……….No. Could you answer the question please?

McGlobalist: You’re pushier than the ATF at a Branch Davidian compound! Look, you know that feeling you get when you drown your first potato sack full of puppies…?

Alt-Market: I can’t say that I follow you……

McGlobalist: Ok, let’s see… about when you were interned at one of our fine public education facilities as a little whelp? You remember the “special needs” kids on the short yellow bus?

Alt-Market: Is this going somewhere, T-Bub?

McGlobalist: Did you associate with those children?

Alt-Market: No, not really.

McGlobalist: Did the teachers let them run wild unsupervised?

Alt-Market: No.

McGlobalist: Well, that’s how we look at you and those like you. You can’t be left to your own devices. Who knows what would happen! Some kids just eat paste, but some set their own heads on fire! We’re doing what we do for your protection. Civilization would self destruct without our guidance.

Alt-Market: What does that have to do with killing puppies?

McGlobalist: Yes, well, imagine that the puppies are retarded….

Alt-Market: Maybe we should move on. You claim that collectivist efforts like globalization are the “wave of the future”, and that concepts such as America’s Constitutional Republic are “old and outdated”. However, isn’t it true that political sovereignty and liberty are actually very new ideas in the grand scheme of history? And, isn’t it also true that globalization is just a rehashing of mercantile feudalism which has been going on for thousands of years?

McGlobalist: Yes, but, have you ever seen a GLOBAL feudalistic empire? Now that’s something new! The Constitution is just an anomaly. It’s an embarrassing document for us, and it’s caused a lot of frustration among my associates. Thankfully, our federalized school system has all but abandoned teaching even the basics of Constitutional law and the Revolutionary War. There are plenty of Americans out there today who have no clue what their legal rights are, or why they have the country that they have. Some of them even spread propaganda undermining Constitutional understanding for us! It’s fantastic! The best possible advantage for an autocracy is when a considerable portion of the public goes out of their way to help us enslave them.

Alt-Market: Many members of your “exclusive club” have expressed philosophical positions that lean towards eugenics, and forced population reduction. Where do you stand on this subject?

McGlobalist: The world is obviously overpopulated, though I have no specific scientific data to back this position. The last time I went to the economic summits in Davos, my limo was stuck in traffic. Can you believe that?! That’s proof enough for me. I frankly couldn’t care less about the environment. I hold considerable shares in the Monsanto Corporation, which violates the environment and the laws of nature on a daily basis. The thing is, watching you people breed like mice is upsetting to my stomach.

Alt-Market: So your support of cap and trade, and international carbon taxes, is a farce?

McGlobalist: (Laughs) You want to know why the Earth gets hot sometimes? Try the sun! Carbon is harmless! It has nothing to do with global warming. In fact, our climate change labs at East Anglia and NASA never release the source data for their so called experiments through FOIA, even though they are sued constantly. So, we can say anything we want about global warming, and no one is able to check our numbers to see if we are lying. They can suspect, but they can’t prove it, unless someone floods the internet with our private emails and fraudulent computer models. Damn hackers….

Alt-Market: What about globalist support for the World Wildlife Fund, and the increased powers of the EPA? What is that all about?

McGlobalist: Ah, we’re big fans of “sustainable development”. For those who are not familiar with that idea, it means essentially that I can take your house, and your land, whenever I want, and turn it into a forest preserve, or a condo, depending on my mood. The EPA and the WWF are tools that we use to assert sustainability disinformation and utilize eminent domain outside of its original parameters. The point is, you are a parasite, and mother earth needs to be deloused.

Alt-Market: Even if you were correct in your claim that overpopulation is a problem today, who ultimately gets to decide who lives and who dies in your “sustainable world”?

McGlobalist: That job should be left to the immutable laws of the scientific method.

Alt-Market: And who gets to interpret what those “immutable laws” say?

McGlobalist: The smartest people on the planet, of course.

Alt-Market: And who decides who is the “smartest”. Isn’t that in part a subjective determination?

McGlobalist: No. The smartest people are the smartest people. Sheesh! What kind of interview is this? We elites have already proven ourselves the most intelligent, so such decisions should be left to us. It’s evolution, plain and simple…

Alt-Market: You don’t seem that intelligent to me…

McGlobalist: Well, you’ve only known me for twenty minutes. Trust me, I’m like, soooo good at Algebra….

Alt-Market: It has become incredibly clear over the past decade that a movement supporting decentralization, Constitutional liberties, and sound anti-Keynesian economic principles, has taken shape. The Liberty Movement is growing steadily stronger, and is quite aware of the strategies of globalization. Does this concern you?

McGlobalist: Decentralization? What the hell is that?

Alt-Market: It’s where we don’t let you do whatever you want.

McGlobalist: That’s crazy talk! My dump truck sized ego prevents me from even fathoming a future in which I am not King of New York A-Number One! I need to call my friend Mark Potok at the Southern Poverty Law Center and ask him to look into this “Liberty Movement”. If anything, we’ll just falsely associate them with racists and terrorists. Always draw indirect connections between your opponents and the designated villains of the society you wish to control. That’s how you marginalize so called “truth seekers”; paint them as monsters to frighten the oblivious public.

Alt-Market: Speaking of which, the DSM-IV mainstream psychiatry manual has recently been edited to include something called “Oppositional Defiant Disorder”. Basically, the establishment controlled psychiatric community (who I see as drug dealers with degrees), is now labeling anyone who shows disobedient or hostile behavior towards “authority figures” as clinically insane. The DSM has a long history of promoting establishment propaganda in its pages. Is this not just another case of marginalization through junk science?

McGlobalist: People who defy authority are indeed dangerous, and should be given the psychological help they require in order to assimilate into society.

Alt-Market: But who determines what “authority” is? If I show hostility to a lying scumbag in sweatpants and a wife-beater, then I’m “normal”. But if you give that same dirtball a badge and a uniform, then suddenly I’m “crazy” for disliking him? It makes no sense. Authority is an arbitrary label doled out by governments or stolen by governments. You can’t base a psychological diagnosis on the dislike of an arbitrary label, it’s completely unscientific.

McGlobalist: Ok, look, just between you and me, we’ve been pulling this gag for a long time. Its classic! Categorizing any person or group that opposes you as “crazy” is a tried and true strategy. Crazy people are ignored, even if they are right. That’s the beauty of it! That’s why we’ve been conditioning Americans with the use of the term “conspiracy theorist”. Someone hears “conspiracy theorist”, they automatically and unconsciously think “crazy person”. Why not make up a clinically recognized disorder associated with very natural aversions to the abuse of power and then label almost everyone as mentally ill? Also, diagnosing a person with anything makes it much harder for that person to obtain a firearm. Slaves should be unarmed and docile, and…..they should laugh at all my jokes.

Alt-Market: Speaking of firearms, this past month whistleblowers within the ATF have exposed a false flag operation in which the U.S. government actually smuggled firearms to drug cartels across the Mexican border, then tried to blame the surge of American guns in criminal hands on innocent gun dealers and on our 2nd Amendment rights in general. Do you believe this subversive activity on the part of the ATF and the U.S. government will damage your ability to undermine the 2nd Amendment?

McGlobalist: These little slip-ups are unfortunate, but not a setback by any means. We ran the same game back in the 80’s in what was later called the “Iran Contra Scandal”. Who was punished back then? I mean really punished? That’s right, nobody. The public investigation barely even touched on all the cocaine we were running through the same operations. Man, the 80’s were great! You would not believe all the drugs and prostitutes that were being passed around between me and my CIA buddies and the wild parties in D.C. with Congressmen just begging to get in the door! I felt like a modern day Caligula! There was this one time when my best friend brought in this donkey, and he gave it too many pills, and….

Alt-Market: Let’s stay on topic Mr. McGlobalist. Besides, you’re obviously describing the movie ‘Bachelor Party’ with Tom Hanks…

McGlobalist: Oh, really? Well, anyway, the exposure of the ATF “Fast And Furious” program is frustrating, but we’ll just ignore it like we always do. The Mainstream media will gloss it over. And within a couple of months, the majority of Americans will have forgotten about it completely. Pretty slick, eh…

Alt-Market: I suppose, but I’m going to have to ask you to take your hand off my leg…

McGlobalist: Ah, I just came back from Bohemian Grove. Sometimes I forget where I am. Are you a gun owner…?

Alt-Market: Yes.

McGlobalist: God damn it! Give me your guns!

Alt-Market: Uh, no…

McGlobalist: What if I give you coupons for groceries? Mmmm, food in your tummy…

Alt-Market: I think it’s about time to wrap up our interview…

McGlobalist: But I didn’t get to talk about all my hobbies, my dabbling in the occult, and you never asked me my favorite cuss word! I want James Lipton, now! (Turns to worshipful male aid) Get me James Lipton, or Regis! We’re redoing this thing! Doing it over! All over! And I want spring water served by little Tanzanian children who speak Swahili and dance! Bring me my skull goblet!

Interview ends abruptly.

Obama, End of NASA Space Shuttle Program, and His Muslim Agenda

July 23, 2011

By Eliana Benador

My heart bleeds today… It’s sad to see a giant, a champion in the world, the world superpower being brought down to her knees, brick by brick, by those who are supposed to nurture and protect her, by those who were supposed to bring improvements and make her stronger.

A few months ago, I had feared this would happen a few decades later. Little did I know how close this was and that it’s happening right now, in front of our eyes, as Americans look on idly, impassively as if under the effect of an overdose of anesthesia.

However, as the month of July hits its final days, Americans not yet used to their new financial devastating situation have found the way to mentally and actually get into vacation mode regardless of the innermost crisis the country is undergoing.

July 21st, 2011, will remain a sad date in American History, but a glorious day in the personal political agenda of president Barack Hussein Obama who has succeeded in closing NASA’s Space Shuttle Program, a 30-year old chapter of American science advancement and progress in world History. And at the same time, he has stopped altogether the American era of human space exploration.  Read More

If Debt Is the Enemy Then There Are Traitors Among Us

"The McConnell plan is blatantly unconstitutional for the fact that it allows for the Legislative Branch to cede the power of the purse to the Executive Branch; Congress -- and specifically, the House -- is constitutionally bound to craft, create and enact all financial legislation. Ceding power to the Executive Branch to "raise the debt ceiling" -- as does the McConnell plan -- is granting the Executive Branch powers reserved for the Legislative Branch. Lawsuits should be readied."

July 23, 2011

By Frank Salvato

The so-called “debt ceiling default crisis” continues to loom, with enough Progressive-Leftist demagoguery in the air to choke a horse, or, in this case, kill an economy. I roll my eyes at the term “debt ceiling default crisis” because the honest man – an increasingly rare species in federal government – understands that there can only be a crisis should President Obama choose to create one. That said, Republicans, TEA Partiers and Conservatives are in danger of doing the right thing in refusing to enable more debt, but losing the public relations war to what amounts to the traitors among us due to chronic messaging impotency.

According to the Daily Treasury Statements, approximately sixty percent of every dollar gleaned by the US government comes to it in the form of revenue generated by taxes. This amounts to roughly $200 billion a month. Given that the debt interest due per month is approximately $29 billion, even a third grader from an under-achieving inner-city Atlanta public school can deduce that there is absolutely no possibility of the United States defaulting on its debt interest payments. The “debt ceiling default crisis” is not so much; it is a ruse, a canard, a fallacy…it is a lie.  Read More

An Open Letter to Speaker John Boehner From Judge Andrew P. Napolitano

Dear Mr. Speaker,

When the Founders at the Constitutional Convention in 1787 created the House of Representatives, it was fashioned to act as the voice of the people within the institutional checks and balances of the Federal Government. That’s why the entire House faces reelection every 2 years. That’s why Constitutionally, you don’t have to even be a member of Congress to serve as speaker. And that’s why the Constitution allows for thousands of members of the House for our current population.

It is the people’s house, and the people spoke last November. They cried out against a government completely out of control. Read More

James O’Keefe’s Latest Undercover Investigation: Medicaid Fraud (Video)

July 18, 2011
The Gateway Pundit

James O’Keefe has completed another undercover investigation. This time the target is Medicaid fraud.

This is the first video in the series which shows government employees in Ohio assisting two men who have described themselves as Russian drug smugglers with applications for Medicaid.
The Daily Caller reported -

In the video, the men explain to Ohio Medicaid workers that they are Russian immigrants who sell illegal drugs, drive a modified McLaren F1 sports car with a gold-coated engine, and use their underage sisters to perform sexual favors in exchange for drugs.

In response, Ohio employees tasked with disbursing federal Medicaid dollars are shown coaching the men through the process of applying forbenefits. “If it’s not something registered here, maybe I just wouldn’t mention it,” a Franklin County Medicaid officer named Traci Daniels tells the men, when asked whether they should mention owning a vehicle that retails for nearly $1 million, as they apply for government aid designed to help poor people. “Not that I can say that. You didn’t hear that from me. But, that would right there, that would throw him off. He would be immediately not qualified.”

Daniels also tells the men to describe their occupation as babysitting, though she apparently believes they are drug dealers.

The two men also ask the Medicaid workers about whether the government healthplan covers abortions for their underage sisters, who they say get pregnant often because they’re performing sexual favors for their clients. Daniels recommends they go to Planned Parenthood. One of the ersatz Russians then made a follow-up call to a woman named Jeanette, also in Franklin County, Ohio’s Medicaid Office. She also directed him to Planned Parenthood.

In Madison County, Medicaid worker Robin Johnson told the two men that her office would not report illegal aliens to federal authorities. “Even if we run into people that are illegal aliens, it’s not like we report them to INS or anything,” Johnson said. “That’s not our purpose here.”

At the end of the video four questions appear:

•“Are these employees doing anything wrong?
• Or are they doing what they are trained to do?
•What should we expect of an unaccountable state bureaucracy giving away federal dollars?
• It couldn’t get worse could it?”

American people are starting to freak out about the condition of the economy

"10 Signs That The American People Are Starting To Freak Out About The Condition Of The Economy"

July 16, 2011
The Economic Collapse

All over America, restlessness and frustration are growing. It has now been almost three years since the great financial crash of 2008, and yet the U.S. economy is still a complete and total mess. In fact, there are all sorts of signs that things are about to get even worse, and the American people are just about fed up.

Virtually every major poll, survey and measure of consumer confidence shows that the American people are becoming more pessimistic about the economy. Millions of hard working Americans that worked their fingers to the bone for their employers and that did everything “right” are sitting at home on their couches tonight staring blankly at the television. Many of them still have a hard time believing that they were laid off and that there is nobody out there that wants to give them a good job. There are millions of other Americans that won’t get much sleep tonight because they will spend much of the night rolling around in bed wondering how they are possibly going to be able to pay the mortgage. We have never faced such an extended economic downturn in modern U.S. history, and a lot of people are starting to freak out about the condition of the economy. As Gerald Celente likes to say: “When people lose everything and have nothing left to lose – they lose it.” Read More

‘Obama Remix’ of Jimmy Carter‘s ’Malaise’ Speech

July 16, 2011
The Blaze

One a peanut farmer from Georgia, the other a Hawaiian Harvard law grad, before entering politics President Obama and former President Jimmy Carter came from extremely different backgrounds. That said, an increasing number of commentators and political opponents have made the comparison between Obama and Carter administrations. This Friday, Conservative commentator Laura Ingraham aired a scary ‘remix’ of Jimmy Carter’s infamous “Malaise Speech” over recent lackluster Obama rhetoric.

Friday marked the 32-year-anniversary of Jimmy Carter’s “crisis of confidence” later pegged “malaise speech,” a national-telivised and ill-recieved address trying to combat what Carter saw as apathy and doubt among Americans concerning politics and the energy crisis. In the days following the speech Carter fired cabinet members, feeling that his administration failed to capitalize on a window of opportunity, which some believe was the beginning of the end for Carter and his ability to appear as a strong and significant leader.

Thirty-two years later another first term Democratic president faces a crisis of continued economic decline and failure to bridge heated political differences from Capital Hill to Main Street. Ingraham’s audio suggests that like Carter, Obama is failing to step up as a strong and believable leader in the eyes of Americans looking to him in a time of crisis.

Alternative Markets Are The Lifeboats That Will Save Us

July 13, 2011

From Activist Post

Special Note: The following is an interview that I was asked to participate in by the good people at Activist Post. I would like to thank them for giving me the opportunity to explain in-depth the ideas behind the Alternative Market Project, and for giving us much needed exposure. Be sure to check out all the fantastic article's over at Activist Post, after reading this interview, of course...

More and more people are becoming aware of the complete system failure we're experiencing in the United States and around the globe. As the true nature of the control system is revealed, people tend to feel as Howard Beale did in Network when he said, "first, you've got to get mad...and scream, I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore!"

But once that anger at being lied to for so long subsides, then we must get on with the business of taking action to make the world more just and hopeful for our children. Many people will take to the streets to protest certain aspects of the current system. Others will do everything in their power to inform or warn their peers of the coming iceberg. Those are good and necessary functions, but they won't stop the Titanic from sinking.

It seems the broken system will continue to take on water despite the best efforts to affect change within it. That's why some are suggesting to jump ship now before they run out of lifeboats. By jump ship, I mean function outside of the system as much as possible. The faulty economic system is only propped up by our belief and support of it. When we operate outside of it using alternative markets, barter systems, local cooperatives, and competing currencies, we not only provide a lifeboat to many frightened passengers, but the paddles as well.

Below is my email interview with alternative market activist and founder of, Brandon Smith. He explains the need and benefits of using alternative markets as a form of protest and survival:  Read More

Obama is a de facto dictator.

July 13, 2011

Scott Gibbons, The American Pundit

We’re rapidly approaching the point at which impeachment is introduced into the equation.

The president has ignored Congress on declaring war. The president has ignored federal law on exempting people from health care reform. And now the president may well ignore Congress on spending.

In short, he has decided that he’ll wage war against any country he wants, exempt anyone he wants from federal law, and spend whatever he wants on whatever he wants.

Regardless of what the Constitution explicitly says.

Regardless of the fact only Congress has the power to appropriate funds.

Regardless of the fact only Congress has the power to declare war.

Regardless of the fact federal law didn’t give him the power to exempt.

Omaha Public Schools spends stimulus money for Social Justice Indoctrination

Omaha Public Schools Spends $130K In Stimulus Money To Buy 8,000 “Social Justice” Manuals For Teachers, States Government “Channels Wealth To White People"

"Indoctrination under the banner of “diversity.”

July 12, 2011

(Omaha World Herald) — The Omaha Public Schools used more than $130,000 in federal stimulus dollars to buy each teacher, administrator and staff member a manual on how to become more culturally sensitive.

The book by Virginia education consultants could raise some eyebrows with its viewpoints.

The authors assert that American government and institutions create advantages that “channel wealth and power to white people,” that color-blindness will not end racism and that educators should “take action for social justice.”

The book says that teachers should acknowledge historical systemic oppression in schools, including racism, sexism, homophobia and “ableism,” defined by the authors as discrimination or prejudice against people with disabilities.

The authors argue that public school teachers must raise their cultural awareness to better serve minority students and improve academic achievement.

The Omaha school board approved buying 8,000 copies of the book — one for every employee, including members of the custodial staff — in April. The decision to buy the book was made 11-0, with board member Mary Ellen Drickey passing on the vote. Read More

New Ad compares Government’s Chronic Overspending to Junkie’s Addiction

July 11, 2011
The Gateway Pundit

A new group called Public Notice Research & Education Fund (PNREF) released this video 3 days ago and it already has over 30,000 views.
“Washington Could Learn a Lot from a Drug Addict”

From the Video: Washington’s chronic overspending is just like a junkie’s addiction to drugs. Unless the cycle of addiction is broken, our economic and unemployment situation will continue to suffer. Washington is out of time. To avoid hitting rock bottom, Washington must cut spending today. To spread this message, Washington Could Learn a Lot has created this video.

Washington Could Learn a Lot is a project of Public Notice Research & Education Fund (PNREF). PNREF is an independent non-profit dedicated to educating the American people about economic policy and the principles of economic freedom.

Through our education and awareness projects, PNREF will explore the future consequences of public policies being enacted today.

Tyrannus Obama Rex..Power Grabbing...Lawless...Excessive Self-Love...must be stopped

"Obama's federal power-grab has expanded into suing and threatening states"

July 11, 2011
By Jay Clarke

Barack Obama has many names. He's been called Savior, Messiah, and The Anointed One. He's the first biracial and, some say, first post-racial president. He is charged as the leader of the free world, defender of democracy, and America's head of state. He's an accomplished organizer, spellbinding orator, and historically significant occupant of the Oval Office. And, he is a tyrant.

Americans hate tyrants. Tyrants are ruthless villains, hostile to the basic freedoms granted to humanity by God. Enshrined in the Declaration of Independence, the unalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness have spoken hope to Americans and to freedom-loving people around the world for 235 years. But, these basic, God-given rights are under assault. Not by international forces, but from within. From within America. From within the U.S. government itself and directly from the Office of the President.

"With the skill of a circus barker or a snake oil salesmen, he claimed the presidency of the United States by duping a large percentage of a naive electorate with slick oratory and outright lies, distortions and propaganda.

America...Do you have the courage to become a David and take on Goliath in the spirit of boldness, courage and bravery ..... as an army of one?"

July 11, 2011

By Ron Ewart, CFP

“There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.” John Quincy Adams

It has been stated with certainty, and history has confirmed, that America is a nation of laws and not of men. It was purposely designed that way by the Framers of our Constitution to protect individual liberty. Millions of brave men and women have paid the ultimate price to maintain that legacy. But oh how times do change when the people aren’t paying attention.

George Sutherland, Associate Justice of the U. S. Supreme Court wrote: “To give a man his life, but deny him his liberty, is to take from him all that makes his life worth living. To give him his liberty, but take from him the property which is the fruit and badge of his liberty, is to still leave him a slave.”

For far too many decades, government, at all levels in America, operating almost virtually unrestrained by the constitution and lobbied by socialists, radical environmentalists, corporations, bankers, unions and foreigners, has far exceeded its constitutional authority and has continuously assaulted or taken away man’s liberty ..... as well as his property.

But, from time to time, even in a so-called free nation, one man will appear out of the shadows and claim that he is not only above the law, he is the law. Barack Hussein Obama is just such a man. He appeared virtually out of nowhere with a shadowy background, a foreign national as a father and a morally challenged mother. His only experience for the job as President was community organizing. With the skill of a circus barker or a snake oil salesmen, he claimed the presidency of the United States by duping a large percentage of a naive electorate with slick oratory and outright lies, distortions and propaganda. With the help of a hopelessly corrupt news media, he slid into the White House on a greased skid with virtually no challenger.

Upon assuming that high office, his real intentions became crystal clear. Within days, assisted by his willing accomplices, he would send America careening into the jaws of socialism and rush her headlong towards the steep precipice of national bankruptcy. Besides the numerous questions surrounding his shadowy past and potential illegitimacy under Article II, Section 5 of the U. S. Constitution, he has acted contrary to the interests of the United States and he has continuously violated his oath of office. If Congress won’t do his bidding, he simply uses the power of the presidency to issue Executive Orders to implement his will, or he issues a directive to one of the Secretaries of his Cabinet to promulgate a new law, thereby circumventing Article I, Section 1 of the U. S. Constitution. The Separation of Powers doctrine was broken by the actions of previous presidents, but more egregiously and blatantly shattered by this president. He, in effect, has become King Obama, fitting for an African nation. Read More

Beck Delivers Speech Before Jewish Politicians, Knesset

‘Your God Is My God’: Beck Delivers Speech Before Jewish Politicians, Knesset

July 11, 2011
The Blaze

Glenn Beck was given a unique opportunity on Monday while visiting Israel: he delivered a rousing speech before the Jewish version of congress, called the Knesset.

“Where you go, I shall go, Your people is my people, your God is my God,” Beck said, quoting the book of Ruth while addressing the Knesset Immigration, Absorption and Diaspora Affairs Committee.

“As a man who also worships the one God, in the times that we live in, it is clear that what is going on is God’s work. If we are silent, evil will win. But if we stand up and take charge, God will do the rest,” he added, according to the Jerusalem Post.

He also encouraged members to reach out to those of other faiths:

“If you go to a synagogue, reach out to a church. If you go to a church, reach out to a JCC. Say, will you watch this with me? After that we’ll talk and eat and get to know one another.”

The Post highlights some of Beck’s main points, which may sound familiar to some of his regular listeners:

1) The Israeli-Palestinian conflict is about destruction of Israel and the west.

2) Anti-semitism is going to go through the roof. When these conditions appear, it’s always the Jews fault. It’s not about the holocaust, (that’s) just the latest in a string of events thousands of years. Holocaust is just the one they made a movie about. It was the same way all the time.

3) The world is about to change, so think differently. Everything you thought you can count on, forget about it, (and) create new systems.

4) The truth shall set you free.

He also went on to recount his recent trip to Auschwitz, using it as an opportunity to praise the Jewish people.

During the trip, which Beck is taking ahead of his August 24 “Restoring Courage” event in Israel, he received a warm welcome from Israeli politicians as well as from at least one local supporter who went to great ends to show support for Beck. .

“(I am) glad to host a friend of the State of Israel,” Knesset member Danny Danon (Likud) told his colleagues. “Usually we don’t clap here in the Knesset, but maybe we can do that at the end.”

“Glenn Beck has a lot of experience with putting facts on the table… if we didn’t have someone like Glenn Beck we would have had to invent someone like him,” he added.

But besides receiving praise from Danon, Beck recalled another message delivered by a supporter in a unique way. While talking about the trip during his radio show Monday, he explained that one person unfurled a welcome banner from atop a crane.

“The left is scared, rightfully so,” it said. “Welcome Glenn Beck.”

The Obama DOJ just like the Nixon Justice Department

July 10, 2011

Last week, of course, was a big week in the investigation of Operation Fast and Furious, the international gunrunning scandal that Obama administration officials still refuse to clear up. Today, Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume characterized the ongoing scandal perfectly:

“This Obama Justice Department reminds me of nothing so much as the Nixon Justice Department,” Hume said on Fox News Sunday. “You have the scent of high-level knowledge of serious wrongdoing and you have the smell of cover-up and I think the stench of cover-up on this gun-running operation is very strong indeed.”

Hume’s commentary comes after Kenneth Melson, the acting director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, last Monday gave secret and exclusive testimony to congressional investigators Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) and Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) to the effect that ATF was not the only agency involved in the scandal, taxpayer money was used to finance the gunrunning and Department of Justice officials explicitly instructed ATF officials not to respond to congressional inquiries.

The Fake Bull Market: A Dollar Mirage

July 10, 2011
By Rober Bonomo

The SP 500 hit an apocryphal low of 666 during the financial crisis in March of 2009 from which point it has surged to more than double in price in about two years. This bull market is one of the most robust in US equities history; its only rivals are the end of the roaring 20’s and the late 1990’s.

There probably couldn’t be two more diametrically opposed moments in US history as the to late 1990’s and the post financial crisis period. The late 1990’s were a period of massive innovation, relative peace, budget surpluses and low unemployment. The US military was resting on its laurels after a swift, definitive victory over Saddam Hussein and the once ominous Soviet threat had disappeared, mired in a decade of decay. Microsoft, Yahoo, Oracle, EBay and the like had made advanced technology once again part of the America brand after the 1970’s and 80’s when it seemed Japan would overtake the US as both the world's dominate economy and innovator. But the nineties were a lost decade for the Japanese and saw a serous decline in their economic power relative to the United States. The 1990’s were the culmination of an American century and victory in the Cold War; the long, sustained bull market made sense.  Read More

The Sugar Daddy Has Run Out of Sugar; Now We Need New Leaders

July 9, 2011
By Sarah Palin

Barack Obama’s big government policies continue to fail. He should put a link to the national debt clock on his BlackBerry. The gears on that clock have nearly exploded during his administration. Yesterday’s terrible job numbers should not be a surprise because it all goes back to our debt. Our dangerously unsustainable debt is wiping out our jobs, crippling our economic growth, and jeopardizing our position in the global economy as the leader of the free world.

As a governor, I had to deal with facts, even unpleasant ones. I dealt with the world as it is, not as I wished it to be. The “elite” political class in this country with their heads in the sand had better face some unpleasant facts about the world as it is. They’ve run out of money and no amount of accounting gimmicks or happy talk will change this reality. Those of us who live in the real world could see this day coming.

Back in January 2009, as governor of Alaska, I announced: “We also have to be mindful about the effect of the stimulus package on the national debt and the future economic health of the country. We won’t achieve long-term stability if we continue borrowing massive sums from foreign countries and remain dependent on foreign sources of oil and gas.” Then I urged President Obama to veto the stimulus bill because it was loaded with absolutely useless pork and unfunded mandates. Everyone knows my early and vocal opposition to that mother of all unfunded mandates known as Obamacare starting back in August 2009, and many recall my objections to the Federal Reserves’ inflationary games with our currency known as QE2 from November 2010. It’s a matter of public record that I did not go to Harvard Law School, but I can add.

The same “experts” who got us into this mess are now telling us that the only way out of our debt crisis is to “increase revenue,” but not by creating more jobs and therefore a larger tax base; no, they want to “increase revenue” by raising taxes on job creators who are taxed enough already! As Margaret Thatcher said, “The trouble with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money.” That’s where we are now. Hard working taxpayers have been big government’s Sugar Daddy for far too long, and now we’re out of sugar. We don’t want big government, we can’t afford it, and we are unwilling to pay for it.

This debt ceiling debate is the perfect time to do what must be done. We must cut. Yes, I’m for a balanced budget amendment and for enforceable spending caps. But first and foremost we must cut spending, not “strike a deal” that allows politicians to raise more debt! See, Washington is addicted to OPM – Other People’s Money. And like any junkie, they will lie, steal, and cheat to fund their addiction. We must cut them off and cut government down to size.

To paraphrase Hemingway, people go broke slowly and then all at once. We’ve been slowly going broke for years, but now it’s happening all at once as the world’s capital markets are demanding action from us, yet Obama assumes we'll just go borrow another cup of sugar from some increasingly impatient neighbor. We cannot knock on anyone’s door anymore. And we don’t have any time to wait for Washington to start behaving responsibly. We’ll be Greece before these D.C. politicians’ false promises are over. We must force government to live within its means, just as every business and household does.

We can’t close our $1.5 trillion deficit overnight, but we must get as close as we can as soon as we can. Little nibbles here and there over 10 years (spun to sound like they’re huge budget cuts) aren’t anywhere near enough. I know from experience that cutting government spending isn’t easy. As governor, I made the largest veto cuts in my state’s history, and I didn’t make many friends doing it. But we will never recover, we will never get free of devastating debt, unless we make tough choices now. We don’t hear talk like this from leaders in D.C. or from those running for office because they say what they think we want to hear rather than what must be said.

We are in desperate need of real leadership, but President Obama’s solution to everything is to grow government by borrowing more money, spending more money, printing more money, and taxing our job creators. He once said that he “believes in American Exceptionalism…just as the Greeks believe in Greek Exceptionalism.” Well, the path he has us on will make us just as “exceptional” as Greece – debt crisis, stagnation, permanent high unemployment, and all.

As we approach 2012, there are important lessons we can learn from all of this. First, we should never entrust the White House to a far-left ideologue who has no appreciation or even understanding of the free market and limited government principles that made this country economically strong. Second, the office of the presidency is too important for on-the-job training. It requires a strong chief executive who has been entrusted with real authority in the past and has achieved a proven track record of positive measurable accomplishments. Leaders are expected to give good speeches, but leadership is so much more than oratory. Real leadership requires deeds even more than words. It means taking on the problems no one else wants to tackle. It means providing vision and guidance, inspiring people to action, bringing everyone to the table, and with a servant's heart dedicating oneself to striking agreements that keep faith with our Constitution and with the ordinary citizens who entrusted you with power. It means bucking the status quo, fighting the corrupt powers that be, serving the common good, and leaving the country better than you found it. Most of us don’t see a lot of that real leadership in D.C., and it’s profoundly disappointing.

But let me tell you where real hope lies. It’s not the hopey-changey stuff we heard about in 2008. Real hope comes from realizing how God has blessed our exceptional nation, and then doing something about it. We have been blessed with natural resources, hardworking entrepreneurs, and a Constitution that preserves the greatest form of government ever devised by man. If we develop those natural resources, allow our entrepreneurs to keep and invest more of what they earn, and adhere to the time-tested truths of our Constitution, we will prosper and endure.

But first and foremost we must tackle our debt. We don’t have the luxury of playing politics as usual. We need real leaders who will put aside their own political self-interest to do what is right for the nation. And if they don’t emerge… well, America has a do-over in November 2012.

Boehner Is Beginning to Crack on the Budget Compromise

The alleged $4 trillion deal has been trimmed back to $2 trillion.

July 9, 2011

WP — House Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) abandoned efforts Saturday night to reach a comprehesive debt-reduction deal, telling President Obama that a mid-size package was the only politically possible alternative to avoid a first-ever default on the nation’s mounting national debt.

After speaking with Obama — who is hosting a key meeting Sunday evening on steps forward on the debt issue — Boehner issued the following statement:

“Despite good-faith efforts to find common ground, the White House will not pursue a bigger debt reduction agreement without tax hikes. I believe the best approach may be to focus on producing a smaller measure, based on the cuts identified in the Biden-led negotiations, that still meets our call for spending reforms and cuts greater than the amount of any debt limit increase.”

On the Road to Government Default

"They will kick the can. They will send a ceiling-raising bill to Obama, who will sign it."

A great default is behind us. The public is unaware of this. If you read this report, you will no longer be unaware of it.

The ease with which this default took place should serve as a warning: there will be additional, much larger defaults. Again, the public does not understand this. The main one will be Social Security. The program is now in the red: more money going out than comiomng in. But most people still cannot believe that the program really will go belly-up. That’s why I produced a video on this.

What? Would the government really break its retirement promises? Of course. It has already been done. Bear with me. You need to know how the game is played in Washington.

Legally, the Federal government is a month away from bankruptcy. The government, under the direction of Treasury Secretary Geithner, is borrowing money from Federal employees’ pension funds to keep the doors open.

It’s an accounting trick. First, the Federal government funds the pension funds with money. Second, the funds buy Treasury bonds. Third, the government immediately spends the money. It’s like Social Security, whose Trust Fund is a pile of IOUs from the government.  Read More
