Another Disaster… Obama’s Gleaming Example of Green Technology – Solyndra – Files For Bankruptcy

August 31, 2011
By Jim Hoft
The Gateway Pundit

The hits keep on coming — Barack Obama’s gleaming example of green technology – Solyndra – filed for bankruptcy today. The Obama Administration gave the solar startup $535 million in federal promises from the Department of Energy.
Obama visited the plant in 2010 and said the factory is just a testament to American ingenuity and dynamism.
“You at Solyndra are leading the way."



NBC Bay Area reported, via Free Republic

President Obama faces political catastrophe in the form of Solyndra — a San Francisco Bay area solar company that he touted as a gleaming example of green technology. It has announced it will declare Chapter 11 bankruptcy. More than 1,100 people will lose their jobs.

During a visit to the Fremont facility in spring of 2010, the President said the factory “is just a testament to American ingenuity and dynamism and the fact that we continue to have the best universities in the world, the best technology in the world, and most importantly the best workers in the world. ”

It’s not his statements the administration will regret; it’s the loan guarantees. The President was celebrating $535 million in federal promises from the Department of Energy to the solar startup. The administration didn’t do its due diligence, says the Government Accountability Office. “There’s a consequence if you don’t follow a rigorous process that’s transparent,” Franklin Rusco of GAO told the website iWatch News.

The President touted the federally back money as a way to create jobs. The President’s opponents immediately jumped on the deal as Solyndra made its first layoffs.

Another Obama disaster. At least this one only cost us $535 million.

Immigration Reform Yielding Results in Alabama

There are some very interesting numbers coming out of Alabama since their passing landmark immigration reform in June. How about decreasing unemployment and increasing passport applications? Yes, Mexican nationals are overwhelming passport offices to secure passage for themselves and their “anchor” children BACK to Mexico.

While radical leftist groups have joined with the Obama Administration Justice Department to assail Alabama for doing locally the job the Feds refuse to do, common sense law and order types now have numbers to show who is right. Read More

A Conspiracy of Counterfeiters


August 31, 2011

By Patrick J. Buchanan
8/30/2011

“Lenin is said to have declared that the best way to destroy the Capitalist System was to debauch the currency. By a continuing process of inflation, governments can confiscate, secretly and unobserved, an important part of the wealth of their citizens.”

“Lenin was certainly right,” John Maynard Keynes continued in his 1919 classic, “The Economic Consequences of the Peace.”

“There is no subtler, no surer means of overturning the existing basis of society than to debauch the currency. The process engages all the hidden forces of economic law on the side of destruction, and does it in a manner which not one man in a million is able to diagnose.”

Keynes warned that terrible hatreds would be unleashed against “profiteers” who enriched themselves through inflation as the middle class was wiped out. And he pointed with alarm to Germany, where the mark had lost most of its international value. Read More

Stunning Map: Want to See Where the World’s Unrest is Spreading?

August 26, 2011
The Blaze

Business Insider published a map on Friday that caught the attention of Glenn Beck. And it should catch yours.

Below you’ll be able to see where in the world food riots are taking place. But not just food riots, you’ll also see where governments have been overthrown, where protests and other riots are occurring, where there’s inflation, and even where social media has been shut down. It’s a fascinating map.

But what may be the most interesting is that it seems like the unrest is spreading.

“Most of the inflation riots and protests are concentrated in the MENA (Middle East and North Africa) region,” EconoMatters writes on the Business Insider site, “but as you can see on the Google map, they are starting to migrate into Europe, as well as China and India.”

It continues:

In the U.S., anemic growth, an ongoing housing depression, high unemployment and two rounds of quantitative easing (QE) probably have laid a pretty solid foundation for a similar riot map if Chairman Bernanke decides to grace us with QE3.

No longer, then, is the unrest localized to the “Arab Spring” countries from a few months ago. As Beck has talked about for a while, this could be the start of the “coming insurrection.”

Here’s the map:

Who We Are as a Nation

Who made progressives the arbiters of the American Dream?

America used to mean something. The Statue of Liberty represented independence, what it meant collectively to be an American. There was a reason why millions risked life and limb to come to our shores. We are a nation of immigrants with a strong work ethic. America was built on hard work, sweat, self-determination, and freedom. We were free and we were proud to be Americans.

We are not who liberals decide us to be. We are not children who need to be told by the government how to live and to be shameful and apologetic about our American exceptionalism. We are patriots and love our country because we feel so in our hearts, because we are free. We are not children who have to stay in their parents’ homes until the age of 26, finding ourselves, because some misguided elected official says we should be on welfare and free healthcare.

Glenn Beck and Larry Derfner Turn the World Upside Down


August 25, 2011
By Yoel Meltzer
American Thinker

Yesterday I joined a large crowd at Safra Square, Jerusalem's civic center, for the public viewing of Glen Beck's live broadcast in the nearby Old City of Jerusalem.

Although I know very little about either the personal or professional background of Glenn Beck, his recent involvement with Israel has brought him into my orbit. For the last few months I've heard the various accusations and warnings from all corners of the Jewish world -- for some he's a right-wing extremist and fascist while for others his strong Mormon beliefs arouse suspicion.

With these thoughts on my mind I decided, following Dudu Fisher's stirring rendition of Israel's national anthem "Hatikvah," to just sit back and hear the man talk. As it turns out, I wasn't disappointed.

For starters, the claims that the man is an extremist or fascist regarding his views on Israel are absolute nonsense. It was obvious to anyone who was there yesterday that the man was just speaking the clear, direct and honest truth. Having said that, in a world that has been heavily influenced by a biased and skewed projection of Israel in large sections of both the mainstream western media and the academic world, and where hypocrisy rules the day as Israel is routinely singled out and condemned by the international community, it should come as no surprise that Beck's words concerning Israel are difficult for certain people to digest.

Regarding the second apprehension, although I don't claim in any way to be a psychologist it seemed clear to me that his concern for Israel and the Jewish people is genuine and not part of some ulterior religious mission.

As the secular Israeli teenagers sitting behind me repeatedly shouted "ha-ish gadol!" ("the man is great!"), I kept thinking to myself "why don't we have any Jewish leaders that speak this way?"

With these thoughts still fresh in my mind, I was forwarded this morning an article called The awful, necessary truth about Palestinian terror from the blog of Larry Derfner, a columnist for the Jerusalem Post. Already known as a far left-wing columnist, in this article Derfner simply went over the edge.

Never mind his preoccupation with the so-called Israeli "occupation". This is nothing new, even if I don't agree with him or anyone else on this issue. In fact, I actually welcome opposing views and I'm always happy to discuss the issues. Derfner, however, does the unthinkable, taking his beliefs to another level in order to justify the Arab murder of Israelis. He writes:

"Whoever the Palestinians were who killed the eight Israelis near Eilat last week, however vile their ideology was, they were justified to attack. They had the same right to fight for their freedom as any other unfree nation in history ever had."

Such statements, even from a hard-core Israeli leftist, are quite shocking. In comparison Yossi Sarid, the former leader of the far-left political party Meretz and harsh critic of Israeli presence in Yesha, never advocated Arab violence against Jews and only supported active civil revolt against what he considered the illegal Israeli occupation. Or even former prime minister and current defense minister Ehud Barak, who made the supremely foolish and irresponsible statement during a 1998 interview -- "If I were a Palestinian at the right age, I would have joined one of the terrorist organizations at a certain stage" -- never actually condoned the Arab murder of Israelis.

Thus Derfner's comments are both shocking and disturbing. But in a world turned upside down it shouldn't come as a surprise when Glenn Beck, the non-Jew, is criticized by some Jews for being too pro-Israel while Larry Derfner, the Jew, writes for a mainstream Jewish newspaper despite the fact that he condones the Arab murder of Jews.

The US Government's agenda to lobotomize the majority of Americans

We Love Freedom! Wait, What’s Freedom?




August 25, 2011
Jeff Berwick, The Dollar Vigilante

The US Government’s agenda to lobotomize the majority of Americans has been an unequivocal success.

Americans now live in one of the world’s least free prison camps yet when asked they will tell you they live in the land of the free and, on top of that, they are attacking and occupying countries who did nothing to them because “they hate us for our freedom”!

They’ve been indoctrinated all of their formative years in mandatory children concentration camps (public schools or private, government regulated schools) and the Government and Federal Reserve has destroyed the economy to the point that it is the rare mother who actually stays home with her kids. Mom and Dad are both out working because they can’t afford not to. And even if they can, the government promotes “women’s liberation”, which like all government programs, means the opposite of what it is called – and Mom works a full day before returning home exhausted and then giving her kids another few hours of brainwashing via television to complete the full day of programming. They even call it that right to their face… “we now return to your regularly scheduled programming”. It’s okay, no one ever figures it out. Read More

They talk a good game about the little people. They talk a good game about the average family, the middle class. ‘I wanna help this group, I wanna help that group.’ What they are is power hungry. They love living like a king and a queen. And they’re arrogant about it. They’re rubbing our noses in it. That’s why people are getting pissed off!

Beck Issues Call for ‘Human Responsibility’ Movement; Departs Jerusalem for South Africa

The heat of the afternoon sun in Jerusalem could not match the fervor of Glenn Beck’s “Restoring Courage” call to follow a “pillar of fire” in pursuit of the truth and wisdom.

After months of preparation, the controversial event unfolded smoothly with Beck telling the large crowd, “I have been asked: What can you teach Israel about Courage? My answer is simple. Nothing. Then they ask: Why are you coming to Israel? Because, I say: In Israel, you see courage.”

Beck described the world as “confused,” and pointed to flash points in Europe as signs of societies losing touch with philosophical moorings: Read More

Bonny Prince Barry? Is Obama preparing to fly the coop?

Photobucket

August 22, 2011
By James V Capua
American Thinker

Is our current "Young Pretender" preparing to fly the coop even before his Culloden in 2012?

Until the advent of Barack Obama, Charles Edward Stuart (1720-1788), called The Young Pretender, was a prime contender for the title of greatest narcissistic waster of other people's time and trouble in history. The Stuarts' hopeless quest to reclaim the throne of England brought little beyond misery to the Scots, many of whom subsequently turned their backs on the Highlands to wrest a better life out of the American wilderness.

The restoration of the Stuarts was, by the
middle of the eighteenth century, a romantic dream, not unlike our own Hope and Change. Certainly, like Hope and Change, it served the needs of some powerful interests to foster the Stuart cause, but in the end the Jacobite dream dashed itself headlong into reality and fell to pieces, leaving the poorest of its adherents, who "trusted" in their Prince from Across the Water, to pay a terrible price. Charlie, who had grown up in Rome as a pampered aristocrat, with about as much connection to those he sent to ruin and misery as our own vacationer-in-chief, whined and complained his way through The Forty-Five, as the Jacobite Rebellion was called, but at least stuck it out until the final disaster at Culloden before fleeing. One begins to wonder whether Barack Obama will be so resolute.

In Chicago, where they know him best, there are doubts that he will:

Getting Off The Globalist Chess Board: Safe Haven Relocation






August 22, 2011
By Brandon Smith and Stewart Rhodes

Special Note: This is the second part in our ‘Getting Off The Globalist Chessboard’ series. Go here to read Part I. Also go to Operation Sleeping Giant for more information , and, be sure to check out our recently launched Safe Haven State Project (page still under construction).

As we noted in part one of this series:

“To put it simply, America is nearing a checkmate scenario. Like the final torrid maneuvers of a rigged chess match, we have been pressed, manipulated, and attacked into the last remaining corner of the “grand global chessboard” left to us; centralized control of all social and economic power into the hands of an unworthy elite. If we continue playing the game by their rules, we will lose. There is no doubt. There have been many solutions presented to us in the past to combat this development, but nearly all of them function within the constraints of Federal politics. Working within the system has earned us no quarter, and frankly, no results. Our only recourse (and, frankly, the best recourse all along) is to STOP relying on the rules of their game, and to walk away from the chess board completely...”

Ideally, it would be grand if enough Americans across this nation would decouple from the fraudulent fiat system so that they and their communities could be sufficiently strong, independent, and resilient enough to weather the coming storm and walk out the other side free. Whatever our individual circumstances, wherever we are, we should work toward that goal; decentralized and sovereign – starting with ourselves, then working outward to galvanize and steel our families, our close friends and distant relatives, our neighborhoods, towns, counties, and then, of course, our states.


Through this effort, we greatly improve our own chances, and equally important, the chances of our communities and our country. It is not only for us to save ourselves, but also to restore our Republic, from the ground up.

We also need to face the reality that an economic collapse is very likely to come before such a renaissance of preparedness will see the light of day. We must accept that in many parts of modern day America, we will not be able to wake up enough people in time to prevent a U.S. version of what we now see in the riots of England, as well as what we saw here in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, but on a national scale – unprepared people who are desperate and scared, or those who are willing to take advantage of the situation to loot, rob, rape, assault, and even kill their fellow citizens.

Christianity and War

The result of this American exceptionalism is a foreign policy that is aggressive, reckless, belligerent, and meddling. This is why U.S. foreign policy results in discord, strife, hatred, and terrorism toward the United States. We would never tolerate another country engaging in an American-style foreign policy. How many countries are allowed to build military bases and station troops in the United States? It is the height of arrogance to insist that the United States alone has the right to garrison the planet with bases, station troops wherever it wants, intervene in the affairs of other countries, and be the world’s policeman, fireman, social worker, security guard, mediator, and babysitter.

This talk was given on August 20 at the Florida Liberty Summit 2011 in Orlando, Florida.

Thank you Campaign for Liberty for the opportunity to speak about a subject I feel so passionate about. I would like to speak to you today about Christianity and War. Although I am a Bible-believing Christian and a theological and cultural conservative, I write extensively about the biblical, economic, and political fallacies of religious people, and especially on the topic of Christianity and war. This is a subject where ignorance abounds in both pulpit and pew, and most of it willful ignorance. This is a subject that exposes Bible scholars as Bible illiterates. This is a subject that turns Christians into disgraceful apologists of the state, its leaders, its military, and its wars. This is a subject that reveals pro-life Christians to be two-faced supporters of wholesale murder. Read More

Congressional Reform Act of 2011

This is bipartisan in nature and is going to both Democrat and Republican. We should all seriously consider helping with the change suggested below. This is something I will fight for and I hope you will too. This is short so please read it all the way through and then forward. You will be glad you did.

The 26th amendment (granting the right to vote for 18 year-olds) took only 3 months & 8 day s to be ratified! Why? Simple! The people demanded it That was in 1971…before computers, before e-mail, before cell phones, etc.

Of the 27 amendments to the Constitution, seven (7) took 1 year or less to become the law of the land…all because of public pressure.

I’m asking each addressee to forward this email to a minimum of twenty people on their address list; in turn ask each of those to do likewise.

In three days, most people in The United States of America will have the message. This is one idea that really should be passed around.

Congressional Reform Act of 2011
1.No Tenure / No Pension. A Congressman collects a salary while in office and receives no pay when they are out of office.
2.Congress (past, present & future) participates in Social Security. All funds in the Congressional retirement fund move to the Social Security system immediately. All future funds flow into the Social Security system and Congress parti cipates with the American people. It may not be used for any other purpose.
3.Congress can purchase their own retirement plan, just as all Americans do.
4.Congress will no longer vote themselves a pay raise. Congressional pay will rise by the lower of CPI or 3%.
5.Congress loses their current health care system and participates in the same health care system as the American people.
6.Congress must equally abide by all laws they impose on the American people.
7.All contracts with past and present Congressmen are void effective 1/1/12. The American people did not make this contract with Congressmen.
Congressmen made all these contracts for themselves. Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, so ours should serve their term(s), then go home and back to work.
8.To be elected to Congress for a Fourth term ( 2 year terms) a 65% majority would be needed in the Congressional district of the canidate 435 Congressional districts, US Senate 3 rd term (6 year terms) would require 75% majority of votes in the State Represented each state has 2 Senators.

If each person contacts a minimum of twenty people then it will only take three days for most people (in the U.S.) to receive the message. Maybe it is time.

THIS IS HOW YOU FIX CONGRESS!!!!!




How Did the Israeli Press Cover Beck’s Events in Caesarea?


How Did the Israeli Press Cover Beck’s Events in Caesarea?

August 22, 2011
The Blaze

Jerusalem Post:

The solutions to the problems of our times are not within the reach of political leaders, rather divinity, US pundit Glenn Beck told nearly 3,000 enthusiastic followers in the Caesarea Amphitheater on Sunday night, at the opening event of his four-day Restoring Courage rally.

“I’ve spent the last few years trying to find solutions for what is happening in the world,” he said on the backdrop of the pillars of the grand stage. “While there may not be a political solution, the good news is the God of Abraham ain’t running for office,” he said to loud applause. “Be not afraid, know who he is, know his face, know that he is a God of covenants and miracles. We are leaving the age of man-made miracles of spacecraft, and we are entering the age of the miracles of God.”

The pleasant evening wind carried the gentle fragrance of the adjacent Mediterranean Sea to the audience in the ancient outdoor theater, the dozens of buses that brought them to the northern city lined up impeccably and awaiting their return in the parking lot like Roman legions. The group of nearly 2,000 Christians who flew in especially for Beck’s event, most of them Americans, will attend an event Monday in memory of the Holocaust, with the grand finale of the tour being the Wednesday Restoring Courage event, to take place near the Western Wall.

The Jewish Daily Forward:

The Roman ampitheater hosts some of the wildest concerts in Israel, but it rarely sees a crowd as excitable as this one. After all, this was no mere musical act, but the conservative broadcaster Glenn Beck.
“While there may not be a political solution, the good news is the God of Israel ‘aint running for office,” he declared to rapturous applause Sunday.

Don’t worry about trifles like diplomatic processes and peace plans, went his message. After all, the entire world is “reentering the age of miracles of God.”

Beck declared that the Christians gathered there should “not only love Israel but we love the Jewish people as they are.”

The former Fox News talk-show host was joined on stage by the American evangelical icon John Hagee, who, in a twist on Kennedy’s famous “ich bin en Berliner” comment had the crowd chanting “ani yisraeli,” which means: “I am an Israeli.”

The JDF article concludes:

While most of the Israeli rabbinic establishment steered clear of the event, American-born Shlomo Riskin, Chief Rabbi of the West Bank settlement of Efrat, attended and spoke. He told the crowd that the event was “magnificent” and “transformative,” and praised Beck’s “courage to love us in our otherness.”

The few Israelis in the audience felt it was a shame that more did not attend. “People told me I’m crazy for coming,” said Seth Greenberg, a high-tech manager from Ranana. “A lot of Israelis are afraid to assert themselves and think it will cause us problems, but I think the time that people like the underdog has passed and we need to be proud because the world loves a winner.”

Haaretz:

Beck actually spoke relatively little (although he did manage to cry often), giving the floor over instead to his main guests – historian David Barton, Efrat founder Rabbi Shlomo Riskin and author Mike Evans.

All three did pretty much what they were presumably booked for: Barton brought historical gravitas to the words of the Bible; a moist-eyed Evans recounted a traumatic childhood of anti-Semitic taunts from which he was saved by a vision of Christ; and Riskin spoke of Jewish appreciation for the support of the Christian pro-Israel community, and in particular that of Glenn Beck, who, according to Riskin, is a “deeply patriotic American, a true friend of Israel.”

“We are not alone,” Riskin said. “We are Jews and not Christians; you Christians, nevertheless, have the courage to love us in our otherness.

“We are profoundly grateful for your courage to love us and stand with us,” he added.

It all seemed carefully scripted, even down to the screens with lyrics of the Hebrew songs transcribed in English. The determination to stand by Israel and the devotion to the Jewish State was palpable, and oft declared.

The Obama administration love affair with GMOs is selling America down the river to agricultural ruin




August 21, 2011
By Ethan A. Huff

(NaturalNews) The freedom to grow one's own food is a foundational pillar of civilization, and one that absolutely must persist if humanity itself is to exist. But this freedom is rapidly disintegrating in the US, as multinational corporations like Monsanto seize control of the American food supply through the widespread propagation of patented, genetically-modified (GM) seeds and crops. And the Obama administration is currently at the helm of orchestrating this hostile takeover, as it continues to openly support any and all efforts to spread GMOs far and wide, whether it be on private farmland or public wildlife refuges.

The American landscape is quickly becoming nothing but a giant patchwork of corporately-controlled biotechnology farms, with individual landowners biting hook, line, and sinker at the bait by willingly tilling their fields with "frankenseeds," and collectively dousing them in millions of tons of chemical herbicides and pesticides like Monsanto's Roundup formula. And now the US government wants to plant GMOs in national wildlife refuges, where the crops' easily-transmissible transgenic traits are sure to permanently pollute pristine ecosystems all across the US (http://www.naturalnews.com/032726_G...).

What just happened in the stock market? Last week, the Dow Jones Industrial Average rose or fell by at least 400 points for four straight days, a stock market first.

The worst drop was on Monday, 8-8-11, when the Dow plunged 624 points. Monday was the first day of trading after US Treasury bonds were downgraded from AAA to AA+ by Standard and Poor’s.

But the roller coaster actually began on Tuesday, 8-2-11, the day after the last-minute deal to raise the U.S. debt ceiling -- a deal that was supposed to avoid the downgrade that happened anyway five days later. The Dow changed directions for eight consecutive trading sessions after that, another first.

The volatility was unprecedented, leaving analysts at a loss to explain it. High frequency program trading no doubt added to the wild swings, but why the daily reversals? Why didn’t the market head down and just keep going, as it did in September 2008?

The plunge on 8-8-11 was the worst since 2008 and the sixth largest stock market crash ever. According to Der Spiegel, one of the most widely read periodicals in Europe: Read More

If You See Something, Say Something



August 20, 2011

Jeff Berwick, The Dollar Vigilante
8-18-11

The Department of Homeland Security has just released another important video warning the American populace about the scourge of white, yuppy-looking people who leave briefcases unattended!

This, of course, is because of the large amount of briefcases that have been exploding across America killing… zero people.

Once again, Janet Napolitano, is asking that “if you see something, say something”.

We’d like to thank her for once again providing us with the opportunity to point out a few of the suspicious activities we’ve noticed of late.

It’s hard to know where to begin – there are so many things.

We find it suspicious that both Janet Napolitano nor Michael Chertoff have been investigated or charged for their part in the “underwear bomber” fiasco where a man without a passport and actually on the terrorist watch-list was escorted past security and put on the plane with a bomb in his boxers at a time when Chertoff had a stake in the backscatter x-ray machines and was leading the biggest lobby group to have these machines put in all US airports hours after the “attack”.

It’s also suspicious that George W. Bush, Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld have not been arrested for lying to get the US into an occupation of Iraq that has now lasted eight years, cost trillions of dollars and killed tens of thousands of US military and more than a million Iraqi civilians.

It’s also suspicious that it says in the US constitution that nothing but gold or silver can be money used by the Government of the United States yet Ben Bernanke and the Federal Reserve issue paper units which are said to be the only legal tender in the US by the US Government – and even when asked if “gold is money”, he does not even pay mention to this fact.

As well, it is suspicious that not one person in the US Government has been investigated for having shipped thousands of high powered weapons to Mexican drug cartels.

It’s also suspicious that there has never been any proof shown for the Osama bin Laden assassination and now most of the members of Seal Team 6 have been killed and there is evidence that almost all of the reported details of the murder are false.

It’s strange, also, that the most outspoken and authoritative analyst against BP after the Gulf Oil spill died a few days after he spoke up about it, in his hot tub.

Not to mention the fact that nearly all members of congress accept bribes (called donations) from corporate and foreign lobby groups to do their bidding.

Or how about the fact that Nobel Peace Prize winner, Barack Obama, first stated that his bombing of Libya does not make it a war action and that the bombing would be over in “days, not weeks”, over five months ago?

This list really could go on forever Janet. There is so much obviously improper conduct going on in the Washington, District of Criminals area.

The people of the US have been brainwashed by mainstream media presstitutes since birth, drugged (flouride in water, adderall and other toxic chemicals given to schoolchildren), put in prisons (public schools and colleges) for the entirety of their formative years and most of the food system in the US has been systematically degraded to the point where most receive little or no nutritition from food and you have outlawed natural foods such as raw milk. In fact, almost all the actions of your government has caused most of the problems in American society today.

Yet, your government says that “terrorists” are now your “average American” and police have been instructed to treat anyone who speaks about the constitution or about freedom as a criminal.

So, yes, we have seen some things and we are saying it to you now.

As for that greying, white, 50 year old man in a business suit who forgot his briefcase, excuse us if we don’t call the government to deal with it. After all, it is the government that are the criminals.

Dollar Vigilantes every day are waking up to the criminality of their own government and are aware of its coming collapse. We focus on moving our assets and in many cases, our ass, outside of the jurisdiction of our own government for this reason.

Obama’s New Executive Order = Obama‘s ’Dream Act’

August 20, 2011
By Mike Opelka

House Judiciary Chairman Lamar Smith claims that President Barack Obama’s new Executive Order that stopped automatic deportation of illegal aliens is more than just a back-door passage of the “Dream Act” but actually something that undermines both the Legislative and the Judicial branches of our government. According to Rep. Smith, the new order permits:

- hundred of thousands of illegals to be given work authorizations, allowing them to compete with Americans for jobs

- a presidential task force to decide who receives amnesty and who does not, creating even more bureaucracy in Washington

- the reversal of a judge’s decision to send a person back to their home country

As reported here on Thursday, President Obama signed another controversial Executive Order before jetting off to nine days of vacation on Martha’s Vineyard. This latest order stopped the automatic deportation of illegal aliens and appears to some in Congress as the President bypassing Congress and effectively creating laws through imposing regulations. With this latest order, President Obama has now created more regulations in 2 1/2 years than any other President has done in the same time frame.

What QE3 Will Look Like

"The end game has arrived for the current monetary system which began with Bretton Woods in 1944. The sub prime crisis, the Fukushima earthquake and nuclear disaster and the PIGS (Portugal, Ireland, Greece & Spain) were the final nails in the coffin of the dollar reserve system."



August 18, 2011
By Robert Bonomo
Alt-Market.com

The recent financial fireworks in the US and in Europe have made it clear that QE3 is close at hand. The third installment described herein is much more than just another revving up of the printing presses, as it will involve a paradigm shift intent on restoring currencies and maintaining the current power structure.

It's an all too common mistake to see the central bankers and their mainstream media propagandists derided as incompetent fools. These “fools”control the money and the message and it's their game to lose. Most pundits think the powers that be have lost control and can do little more than kick the can down the road. They are wrong. We are about to witness one of the greatest orchestrated events in human history; a monumental sleight of hand that will restore economic prosperity, keep the masses happy and most importantly- maintain the parasitic elites in power.

Tin Hats or Tin Men

Mainstream sources deride conspiracy theorists as simpletons unable to deal with the complexity of the world; the tin hat crowd are in need of a “God” or “bogeyman” to explain the evils of the world. The sophisticated academics and journalists tell us that history is the product of countless interests fighting for limited resources. The cabal of bankers is nothing more than a mirage conjured up in the thirsty imagination of simpletons.

The States Were Sovereign When They Created The Federal Government

Do You Understand the Constitution?

August 16, 2011

By John Sutherland
8/15/2011

Having had some rather intense inline correspondence with conservatives in recent days who were basically attacking Ron Paul as a kook, wanting the federal government to perform actions that they think is important, regardless of the constitutionality, and having the federal government control the actions of the states. My only retort to them was to follow the Constitution, and to which, of course, I was told I just don’t understand the Constitution.

So, to simplify and declare my understanding and my position regarding the Constitution, here goes:

1.Representatives of the states wrote the Constitution, and with that document created the federal government.

2.The states are thus sovereign over the federal government – it is their offspring.

3.The federal government charter (the Constitution) lists exactly what the three branches of the federal government are supposed to do for the states in the realm of responsibility and shared sovereignty.

4.In areas where there are constitutional questions, the Federalist Papers provide extremely good understanding of exactly what the Founders had in mind when they drafted the Constitution, but the states should decide the resolution to the constitutional questions – not the federal government (and, yes, I am well aware of the impact that John Marshall had on the early supreme court).

5.In general, the federal government is supposed to 1) assist the states by presenting a united front in the international arena, and 2) to facilitate and make easier and more successful the interactions between the states. The federal government is a support mechanism for the states, not the controlling bureaucracy.

6.The states did not consider the Constitution to be a controlling document over the states. See the ninth and tenth amendments. So, as much as I like the concept of the recent McDonald v. Chicago Second Amendment decision, I would not suggest that it can control the states.

7.At no time (from my research) have the states surrendered their own sovereignty to the federal government. They may have shared some sovereignty, but the states are still legally sovereign over the federal government.

8.In cases where the federal government violates its contract terms with the states, it is the state governments that must rein in the federal government – not the people. The federal government does not work for the people – it works for the state governments. Witness the total shunning of the people by the federal government when 1 million marched on Washington a few years back.

9.The states have, however, surrendered so much of their own power to the federal government that the subject of self-sufficiency is perhaps out of the question at this time. That’s a crime to the citizens of the states, because without the states being independent and self-sufficient, the states have no means of protecting their own citizens from onerous foreign government attacks (witness Arizona’s legal challenges brought against it by both the federal government and the Mexican government).

10.In full consideration of the current lawless and global elite controlled federal government, it is the state governments that must 1) regain their self-sufficiency status as soon as humanly possible, and 2) confront the federal government each and every time it violates the law as established by the Constitution – especially in times like these.

Often we Americans, including our conservative colleagues, are coming off dumber than rocks with regard to understanding our own state and federal constitutions and our own laws. From our own government employees we need to start hearing the complaint that the ‘all the people know the law and we can’t get away with anything.’ Then we will know that we’re being effective.

For American citizens to find fault with any presidential candidate, with any elected representative, or with any hired government employee, because they are following our laws is the height of ignorance and stupidity.

If we, as American citizens, can’t learn about and follow our own laws, how can we demand that members of our government do so? Are we screwed as a country because we are so dumb we can’t learn our own constitutions and laws?

Somehow I know we are better than that.

Obama Readies Citizen Spies For Action

"The paranoia that the DHS is trying to illicit goes far beyond the absurd, but this is what happens in all countries that devolve into tyranny."


August 12, 2011

By Brandon Smith
Alt-Market.com

I think at this point it is fair to say that the name “Barack Obama” has become irrevocably synonymous with the phrase “Brownshirts”, and with very good reason. Riding the euphoric wave of a Prozac addled collectivist saturated puppy-love election season, the teleprompter dependent basketball playing android immediately launched several programs designed to centralize community organization using federal oversight. One of these initiatives, ‘The Universal Voluntary Public Service Program’, stood out as one of the most unabashedly fascist concepts to come out of any presidential administration since Franklin D. Roosevelt’s forced internment of innocent Japanese American’s. The idea of requiring citizens to “volunteer” for quasi-military or federal service and subsequent statist indoctrination didn’t play too well with the majority of the public, and has, for now, been abandoned.

The problem with governments with aspirations of totalitarianism, however, is that they never actually fully give up on any reach for power. Instead, they shelve one tactic and try out another, until the citizenry starts to nibble the bait.

To be fair, this behavior was going on long before Obama, and his particularly unhinged presidency is only an amalgamation of all those corrupt puppet politicians that came before him. Much of the police state apparatus we see being slowly inserted into our daily lives was constructed in stages. George W. Bush’s implementation of the Patriot Acts, the DHS, and the FISA Bill, for instance, gave Obama an easy framework of tyranny to build on. Whoever globalists deem suitable to replace Obama in 2012 or 2016 (if we even have the option of rigged elections by then), will certainly carry on where he left off (perhaps Rick Perry can have an insincere prayer circle with his Fusion Center hit squads before heading out to attend another Bilderberg conference).

Anticipating the Coming Convulsions as the Welfare State Dies

August 9, 2011By Kurt Schlichter

It’s already happening – the liberal dream of a perpetual social welfare state where deadbeat liberal constituencies feed off of the work of productive conservative citizens in perpetuity is dying. There’s no doubt about that; the only question left is how long and hard the process will be as the hideous leviathan the utopian liberal establishment has created convulses and dies.

It’s going to die hard. And ugly.



The collapse is well-underway in Europe – Greece has gone from the cradle of democracy to a cesspool of union-fueled mobs – but America faces the same trauma. As the contradictions inherent in the vision of a societal plan based on the notion that an ever-expanding pool of Democratic-voting serfs sucking the wealth away from the mostly Republican-oriented producers who labored to create it become more apparent, the reactions and rear-guard efforts of the terminal liberal elite will grow more extreme.

We are already seeing the liberal elite lash out in anger and frustration at what is a perfect storm of failure. Glenn Reynolds, the legendary Instapundit, chronicles the daily disintegration, while the brilliant Mark Steyn’s cheery new book, After America: Get Ready for Armageddon, drops on August 8, 2011 – I’ll race you to Amazon to get a copy.

As the three components of the liberal establishment – the media, the unions and politicians – rage at the dying of the liberal light, the insanity meter will swing far into the red. It’s already begun. The Tea Party has dared to speak the truth, and the uncomfortable realities it has pointed out have destroyed the bogus consensus that has allowed the debt Titanic to sail giddily on toward the iceberg. That’s why the establishment response is to demonize the popular movement. We’re “terrorists” or “lunatics” or, bizarrely, “hobbits.” Our crime is telling the truth. Read More

The Rioting Underclass: Product of a Diseased Culture

"Pressure from above, pressure from below; It’s about eviscerating the middle class by manipulating them to demand their own enslavement"

August 9, 2011
By Paul Joseph Watson

The riots that have gripped London and swept other major cities in the UK are the product of a diseased culture that leads to violence and mayhem which ultimately only serves to benefit the ruling elite in its bid to eviscerate the middle class by manipulating them to demand their own enslavement.



Firstly, anyone who truly believes that the rioters are burning and looting to protest any legitimate grievances, at least ones that they are consciously aware of, needs their head examining.

A BBC video clip features audio of a group of drunk teenage girls describing how fun it is to engage in wanton violence and thieving. In a transparent and moronic attempt to justify their actions, the girls begin babbling about “the government….conservatives or whatever….I don’t know,” before responding to a question about why they are attacking local residents of their own community by snorting, “It’s the rich people, the people that have got businesses and that’s why all of this happened because of rich people.” Read More

Who Made Nearly a $1 Billion Bet on U.S. Debt Downgrade?

“There are mounting rumours that investor George Soros, 80, famously known as ‘the man who broke the Bank of England’, could be involved."

August 8, 2011
The Blaze

In the first trading day following S&P’s announcement that the U.S. government credit rating would go from Triple-A down to AA+, U.S. stocks have sharply declined and investors are scrambling to rid themselves of risky assets. With Wall Street in disarray, one investor is smiling after having walked away from the crisis possibly 10 billion dollars richer. ETF Daily News reports that the investor bet on the downgrade, and is now heavily benefiting from it:

“Someone dropped a bomb on the bond market Thursday – a $1 billion Armageddon trade betting the United States will lose its AAA credit rating. In one moment, an invisible trader placed a single trade that moved the most liquid debt market in the world. The massive trade wasn’t placed in bonds themselves; it was placed in the futures market. The trade was for block trades of 5,370 10-year Treasury futures executed at 124-03 and 3,100 Treasury bond futures executed at 125-01.” Read More

America “Makes The Cut” – So What Happens Next?

"Our ability to continue funding our liabilities is now greatly diminished."


August 7, 2011
By Brandon Smith
Alt-Market.com

Around the world, starting Monday, all eyes are on the markets. The tension is palpable. The uncertainty is ample. And anger is heavy in the air. As predicted, the debt ceiling deal was not only NOT enough to assuage economic fears, it actually exacerbated them, triggering a flight from the Dow, and creating a decisive opportunity for ratings agency S&P to cut the once perfect U.S. credit rating from AAA to AA+.

At Alt-Market, we often talk about points of balance, and how certain moments in history become highly visible indicators of balance lost. If we pay close attention, and know what we are looking for, these moments can be recognized, allowing us time to shield ourselves from the explosion and the resulting financial shrapnel. The past two weeks have culminated into one of these defining events that tell us the tide has fully turned, and something new and dangerous is just over the horizon. The question now is; what should we expect?

The nature of the credit downgrade situation is not necessarily “unprecedented” in history, but it is surely unprecedented on the scale we see currently in the U.S. It is difficult to predict how exactly the investment world will react. Some consequences, though, are probable, if not inevitable. Let’s examine the events we are likely to see in the coming weeks as well as the coming months, as nations attempt to adjust to America’s final plunge… Read More

The Debt Deal Con: Is It Fooling Anyone?



August 4, 2011
By Brandon Smith
Alt-Market.com

Alternative economic analysis brings with it a certain number of advantages and insights, but also many uncomfortable burdens. Honest financial research is a discipline. It requires us to not only understand the fundamentals, but to question the fundamentals. It requires us to look beyond what we would LIKE to see in the economy, and accept the reality of what is actually there. With this methodology comes the difficulty of knowing the dangers ahead while the mainstream stumbles about well behind the curve. It means constantly having to qualify one’s conclusions, no matter how factual, because the skeptics and opposition base their views on an entirely different set of rules; farcical rules that no longer (or never did) apply to the true state of our country’s fiscal health.

After a while, you begin to expect that a majority of the public will buy into any number of government or Federal Reserve con games and swindles as the process of full spectrum collapse rolls onward. However, this expectation is not always accurate…

A majority of Americans were against the bailouts, TARP, quantitative easing, the “too big to fail” concept, etc. Sometimes a government action is so fraudulent that even those who aren’t educated on the specifics can smell the grift in play. The recent debt ceiling debate and resulting debt deal are fuming with the hot stench of predigested disinformation, so much so that no one seems to be happy with it, even people who a month ago were begging for it. When you have to parade around a hobbled shooting victim in order to get any applause for your legislation, then you may be in trouble…

Federal Government Borrows $239 Billion On Tuesday, U.S. Debt Has Largest One-Day Bump In History – Update: Borrowing Now Tops 100% Of GDP…


Un-friggen-real!

August 3, 2011
Weasel Zippers

(The Washington Times) — U.S. debt shot up $239 billion on Tuesday — the largest one-day bump in history — as the government flexed the new borrowing room it earned in this week’s debt-limit increase deal.

The debt subject to the statutory limit shot way past the old cap of $14.294 trillion to hit $14.532 trillion on Tuesday, according to the latest the Treasury Department figures, which are released on the next business day.

That increase puts the government already remarkably close to the new debt limit of $14.694, which means one day’s new borrowing ate up 60 percent of the $400 billion in space Congress granted the president this week.

Debt numbers go up and down regularly, depending on what the Treasury Department is redeeming or issuing on any day, but have been on a steep upward trend for the past decade as spending has ballooned and revenues have fluctuated.

For the past 2 ½ months, though, the number essentially was frozen as the government was poised to reach the borrowing limit set by law. The Treasury Department used extraordinary means to stall, but was about to run out of room on Tuesday.

Update: One day after upping the debt ceiling and we’re already borrowing over 100% of GDP. Absolutely sickening.

(AFP) — US debt shot up $238 billion to reach 100 percent of gross domestic project after the government’s debt ceiling was lifted, Treasury figures showed Wednesday.

Treasury borrowing jumped Tuesday, the data showed, immediately after President Barack Obama signed into law an increase in the debt ceiling as the country’s spending commitments reached a breaking point and it threatened to default on its debt.

The new borrowing took total public debt to $14.58 trillion, over end-2010 GDP of $14.53 trillion, and putting it in a league with highly indebted countries like Italy and Belgium.

Former Comptroller General: “Sudden And Very Painful” Economic Collapse Is Coming

"US is just three years away from becoming Greece"

Prisonplanet.com

Former head of the Government Accountability Office and Comptroller General of the United States, David Walker has issued a stark warning following the compromise deal to raise the debt ceiling.

“We are less than three years away from where Greece had its debt crisis as to where they were from debt to GDP,” Walker highlighted in an interview with CNBC earlier today.

Greece’s ratio of debt to GDP has surpassed 100% and is heading towards 150%, a factor that has meant without bailouts from the EU and the IMF, the country would have defaulted.

The US is now nearing the same 100% margin with GDP growth floundering below 1%. Read More

"Many say we are "going" off a cliff;  I say we've gone."

August 2, 2011
By Kirk W. Kelsen
American Thinker

Just either side of the contentious debt limit vote in the House on Friday, the United States Congress addressed among its most footling duties: naming and opening new post offices in Mississippi and New York. Were anyone in Washington to think on it, scheduling authorization for a bankrupt federal agency's new baubles even as 3,500 of its other offices are closed made perhaps not the best bookends for the intervening historic legislation. But circumstance being what they are, it does make a nice pr├ęcis: government spending relentlessly and automatically continues, no matter what's going on.

There is a nascent meme out there portraying Tea Partiers as raging infants (video) demanding ridiculous solutions. Conversely, the eminently respectable Rep. Paul Ryan and author Prof. Thomas Sowell make convincing points about grabbing success where it lies and fighting another day. The Tea Partiers, they say, can't change 80 years of inexorable spending in one Act of Congress alone. No doubt true.  Read More

Really? You call this winning?
  • - Obama gets over $2 Trillion to spend before the 2012 election
  • - There are no real spending cuts
  • - There is a massive tax increase effective January 1, 2013
Obama is going to be handed something in excess of $2 Trillion -- and he has made it perfectly clear that he will spend every penny of it before the November 2012 election. That's why he kept saying, " . . . so we don't have to do this again", meaning raise the debt ceiling again. The debt ceiling would only need to be raised if all of the money had been spent. Therefore, he has stated very clearly that he will spend every penny of any debt ceiling increase. He is going to burn through $2 Trillion-plus in the next sixteen months. This was the Obama regime's plan from day one. Geithner appeared before Congress in early May and told them this in no uncertain terms. This outcome has been a known quantity all along.  Read More
