This amazing cartoon was in the Chicago Tribune in 1934. Look carefully at the plan of action.  Note who's driving the out-of-control wagon:  university professors.  Note Stalin and Karl Marx babbling the same type of Obama fascist Progressive plan to "fundamentally transform" America.  Remember the adage, "Those who do not remember the past are doomed to repeat it."

 

Sound money is a basic human right, derived from private property rights.  Alasdair Macloed says it best:  "Firstly, it is a basic human right to choose to save without our savings being debased by the tax of monetary inflation. Those who are worst affected by this inflation tax are not the rich -- they benefit -- but the poor and the barely well-off, which is why monetary inflation undermines society and why the right to sound money should be respected. If government gives itself a monopoly over money, it has a duty to protect the property rights vested in it.

"Secondly, it is a basic right for us to own our own money rather than have it owned by the banks. For them to take our money and expand credit on the back of it debases it. It is an abuse of an individual's property rights and a banking licence is a government licence to do so. If anyone else was to do this, they would be guilty of fraud. Banks should be custodians of our money, and it should not appear in their balance sheets as their property."

"How ironic and sad, then, that advocates of recognizing gold and silver as money, as was done in not-so-olden times, should be characterized as conservatives, reactionaries, and worse when they are actually liberators and when advocates of infinitely 'elastic' currency are actually the great enablers of totalitarianism throughout the world.

"Sound money guarantees a stable yet progressive economy where people are truly equal. It allows people to save properly for their retirement so that they will not become a burden on the state. It leads to democracy voting for small governments. It encourages peaceful trade and discourages war. It is the only path, after this mess, that leads us to long-lasting and peaceful prosperity. We really need everyone to understand this for the sake of our future."

When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men... they create for themselves, in the course of time, a legal system that authorizes it, and a moral code that glorifies it.  Frederic Bastiat, The Law [1850]  Sound familiar in 2012?  Look around.

Must see movie out on DVD:

"V" for Vendetta...
"The people should not be afraid of their government; Governments should be afraid of their people."

   “Who are you?”

   “Who?  Who is but the form following the function of what, and what I am is a man in a mask.”

   “Well, I can see that.”

   “Of course you can.  I’m not questioning your powers of observation.  I’m merely remarking on the paradox of asking a masked man who he is.”

   “Oh, right.”

   “But on this most auspicious of nights, permit me then, in lieu of the most commonplace sobriquet, to suggest the character of this most dramatis personae:

   Voila!  In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of fate.

   This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished.  However, this valorous visitation of a by-gone vexation, stands vivified, and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin vanguarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition.

    The only verdict is vengeance, a vendetta, held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous. Verily, this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose, so let me simply add that it’s my very good honor to meet you and you may call me V.”

    Did You Know...?   

   The Ten Commandments contain 297 words.  The Bill of Rights is stated in 463 words.  Lincoln's Gettysburg Address contains 266 words.  A recent federal directive regulating the price of cabbage contains 26,911 words.

   Amendment X to the Constitution of the United States, together with Article I, Section 8, prohibits the U.S. Congress from involving itself in cabbage pricing, education, health care, personal safety, campaign financing, most criminal law, toilet capacity, the banning of amino acid supplements (such as tryptophan), vitamins (such as B-17) and thousands of other things it has gotten away with so far.

       Quickie News Briefs     

Monday September 15, 2014

--  Fri Sep 12, 2014  Part III of Ayn Rand's movie Atlas Shrugged, Who is John Galt? comes out today.  Go see it and find out how today's economy ends and a renaissance begins.  By the way, where is Ragnar Daneskjold?

--  Sun Sep 07, 2014  Whoa, Idahonians, wanna know why public education costs so much in Idaho?  Pull up the barn floor, pour yourself another hot cup of Rocket Java and listen up, girl friends.  Outgoing Supt of Idaho Schools, Tom Luna, gave two top staffers raises amounting to about 50% and 37% respectively.  The salary for Deputy Chief of Staff, Jason Hancock, was bumped from $88,000 per year to $130,000 per year and Communications Director, Melissa McGrath's salary was boosted from $72,000 per year to $98,000 per year.  Why?  Luna only said, "because they took on extra work."  Most of the other 140 employees on Luna's staff received a 1% salary and 1% bonus increase this year.  Compare this to private businesses:  Nobody in a commensurate salary job would receive a 50% or 37% pay raise unless they invented the wheel or discovered how to time travel.  Idaho's Public Education system is riddled with these types of cronyisms and ridiculous expenditures.  The Pub Ed annual budget is about $2.0 billion per year out of Idaho's $3 billion budget.  Adding in federal grants and other cookies from the fed for Leave No Child Behind, Race To The Top, and now Common Core, bring Idaho's annual budget to around $3 billion per year.  When running for Dist 18's Senate seat in 2004 I downloaded the entire Idaho State School Budget and discovered hundreds of redundant line items for busing, landscaping, special programs, Vice Principles not per high school but per each of 3-4 grades per high school, and on and on.  Many Idaho school district's cost per pupil for K-12 education totaled -- wait for it -- totaled more than the then $35,000 per year cost to attend Harvard University.  Elementary schools with 50 or less kids had to duplicate everything that schools with hundreds of children had, from playgrounds to buses to cafeterias to gymnasium and so on.  If Idaho was really a Conservative state, Gov Otter and School Supt Tom Luna would have worked to dump public schools and moved education to privately owned schools.  Otherwise, these above mentioned pay raises for friends of friends, buddies of buddies, will continue until they finally bankrupt Idaho's Pub Ed System.  Meanwhile, the kids are coming out dumber and dumber and do not even learn HOW to think much less what to think.

--  Fri Sep 05, 2014  Dinesh D'Souza's latest book: America, Where Would the World be Without Her is a must read for anybody who is trying to keep up with current social political economics.  He explains why President Obama and the current crop of progressives are not stupid but are actually very clever at what they are doing, which is purposefully trying to downsize the United States for what they consider is just dues for America's alleged past colonialism.  The progressives are, of course, wrong and D'Souza points out how in his very thought-provoking book plus a movie of the same title.  Think of D'Souza's book as Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged Lite, not on intellectualism but on the style of writing.  Both books are great reads and both movies are, too.

--  Fri Sep 05, 2014  Next Friday on Sep 12 Ayn Rand's Part III, the conclusion, to her trilogy film Atlas Shrugged will be playing at all major theatres.  I suggest you re-see Parts I and II so you can slide right into Part III with your buttery bag of popcorn.  Popcorn once a month or so is OK, for all you philosopher body builders out there trying to keep up with Ragnar Daneskjold, the pirate in Atlas Shrugged who keeps all government busy by blowing up or swiping all of their stolen cargo on the high seas and getting away in his super fast Ragnar-mo-ship traveling at the speed of sound.  Remember where we left off in Part II?  Dagny had just tried to follow a Jr scientist who figured out how to make John Galt's energy machine work but crashed her plane at Galt's Gulch.  Many scientists, businessmen, and musicians have already vanished to Galt's Gulch from the regular altruistic state collectivist world and now Dagny will have to figure out why she is guilty for continuing to be a producer, a producer that keeps the state collectivists governments in power to continue their looting and destruction of the world.  When will she finally figure it out?  Tune in next week on Aug 12 at your local cinema and find out.

 --  Tue Aug 26, 2014  Here's a good task for an investigative journalist out there in reader land to perform: contact all of President Barack Obama's professors at Columbia University and ask them if they have copies of the grades they gave to each of their students, mainly to Obama.  Since one cannot obtain those transcripts from the staff at Columbia -- they are, for some God only knows reason, sealed -- the only avenue of investigation left is to go directly to Barack's professors.  I'm betting that there is not one professor who can even remember having Barack Obama in ANY of his/her classes at Columbia, much less can they present a copy of any grade they gave to him for attending/completing any class.  This is exactly what Wayne Allyn Root, author of The Murder of The Middle Class, discovered when he attended a recent Columbia class reunion.  Wayne Allyn Root was Barack Obama's classmate -- if Obama even attended -- at Columbia and he could not find one student or one professor who claims to have seen Barack Obama anywhere at Columbia University.  So here's what I'm guessing really happened:  The powers that be enrolled Barack Obama at Columbia University in a clandestine manner for the future purpose of then getting him into Harvard Law School.  Obama never really attended any classes at Columbia -- which is why nobody ever saw him there and why professors have claimed he was never in their class -- and then the powers that be, along with the staff at Columbia who was in on this great hoax, "graduated" Barack Obama so he could then enroll at Harvard Law School.  Coming from Occidental College in LA and transferring to Columbia was the Big Hoax but the powers that be had to do it in order for Obama to then go on to Harvard.  All part of the Big Plan to elect the first black man as President of the US.  They knew that the guilt-ridden American youth and a huge majority of blacks in America would overwhelmingly vote yes for Obama, especially after they rigged his university pedigree that virtually nobody in the major news media has questioned -- except Free Market Duck and other Tea Party/Libertarians.  So, the real Hercules Poirot moment, the Sherlock Holmes discovery, is for somebody to ask each of Obama's professors or TAs at Columbia if they can produce a copy of his grades from their class(es).  My guess is:  Nope, because he never really "attended" Columbia.  Note that I did not ask whether the Columbia University staff, the perps who were in on this Big Scam, could produce any grades for his classes; I am asking each professor whether they can produce a copy of the grade they gave to him for each of their class(es).  If I am correct, they will say NO -- or be afraid and say nothing, which is the same as a non-yes, a NO.  And that will be proof positive that President Barack Obama did not "legitimately" attend Columbia University and also, therefore, did not qualify for admittance into Harvard Law School.  The Obama University Hoax which dragged him into the presidency of the United Sates will probably be revealed in the future as one of the greatest hoaxes and true political conspiracies ever perpetrated upon this nation.  Any volunteers for this investigative journalism?  Afraid of the consequences?  You should be.

--  Fri Aug 22, 2014  Listen up girl friends, shut up and pour yourselves another hot cup of Rocket Java.  Let's get educated here.  According to author Dinesh D'Souza in his book, Obama's America, Unmaking the American Dream, here is a sample excerpt from Michelle Obama's thesis regarding being black at Princeton:  "By actually working with the Black lower class or within their communities as a result of their ideologies, a separatist may better understand the desparation [sic] of their situation and feel more hopeless about a resolution as opposed to an integrationist who is ignorant to their plight."  As D'souza correctly states, "The grammar is wrong; the tenses are garbled.  People are ignorant 'of' the plight of the lower class, not ignorant 'to' their plight.  And 'desparation' should be spelled 'desperation.'"  As reviewer Christian Hitchens wrote about Michelle's thesis, "These are not mere typos; they reflect an estranged relationship with the English language.  Moreover, they appear not in an off-the-cuff transcript but in a thesis that is supposed to reflect the culmination of one's college career."  As Hitchens further wrote, "To describe it [Michelle's thesis] as hard to read would be a mistake; the thesis cannot be 'read' at all, in the strict sense of the term.  This is because it wasn't written in any known language."  This is the level of intellectualism that it takes to get a degree from Princeton University.  D'Souza added, "Remarkably Michelle graduated with honors at Princeton and was admitted to Harvard Law School.  And subsequently Michelle was hired by the University of Chicago to run 'programs for community relations, neighborhood outreach, volunteer recruitment, staff diversity, and minority contracting,' with a salary of $316,000 a year.  Yeah, so pour yourself another hot cup of Rocket Java and have a good laugh at what it takes to graduate with honors from Princeton and Harvard.  As a side note, President Obama also attended Harvard where he was President of the Harvard Law Review.  So how many editorials and columns did Obama write for the Harvard Law Review, according to D'Souza's research?  A big fat ZERO!  The upshot:  one could draw the opinion that both President Obama and the First Lady were given special passes at several Ivy League universities (Columbia and Harvard for Barack and Princeton and Harvard for Michelle) because they were black.  If this is true, then it is racism to the nth degree, practiced by institutions of supposed higher learning.

--  Fri Aug 22, 2014  Sec of Defense, Chuckie Cheese Hagel, just popped onto national TV and exclaimed in a surprise voice that maybe the ISIS Islamo fanatics weren't a Jr Varsity team like President Obama called them a coupla weeks ago... and, he continued, we had better take these fellas quite seriously and maybe start reading the Pentagon's G2 intelligence summaries that the President and his administration receives every morning like clock work.  How do I know?  Because I worked with the Assistant Chief of Staff, Intelligence in the Pentagon and Saigon, Vietnam for two years and helped prepare those reports for the then President and Chief of Staff.  Apparently Obama has been throwing these reports into the garbage every day and playing 18 rounds of golf instead.  These reports are top secret crypto with half of them eyes only and if Obama was in the military being considered for this intelligence position he would have failed just on account of all of his past associates such as Bill Ayres, Rev Wright, the Communist Party, socialist affiliations, etc.  And now, this person who could not even qualify for the lowest level "Confidential" security clearance is the President of the United States and Commander-in-Chief.  What a horrible joke this is for America:  a treasonous NAZI in charge of our nation, becoming a dictator day by day by issuing simple-minded Executive Orders that nobody in Congress or the Judicial Dept will squash as totally illegal.  How long Obama will get away with his obvious dictatorial activities depends on the American sheeple.  When will  they wake up and what are they going to do about it?

--  Fri Aug 22, 2014  Hmm, girl friends, looks like Dictator Obama has broken at least two laws in his release of Pvt Bergdahl in exchange for five Gitmo terrorists:  (1) Obama neglected to give the US Congress 30 days notice of his intent to release Pvt Bergdahl, and (2) Obama neglected to obtain authorization for the funding to perform this action.  The Committee on Whatsmacallit in Washington (who cares what their real name is) just indicted the Obama Administration on both counts, which means the US Congress will call a special Let's Impeach Obama Session over the Labor Day Weekend and the entire US population will rise up and revolt.  Yeah, when hell freezes over.

--  Tue Aug 19, 2014  Never mind the Democratic-created race riots in Ferguson, MO -- created by implementing our nation's welfare ghettoes -- let's ask an important Commander-in-Chief question.  What kind of Commander-in-Chief allows a large portion of his military arsenal to be abandoned and captured by the enemy in the Middle East during an American withdrawal?  What kind of Commander-in-Chief allows the fanatical Muslim terrorists in the Middle East to waltz into a major Iraqi city and take over the bank accounts worth over a half a billion dollars, re-routing the money to other banks so they can continue financing the Muslim fanatics' war against innocent people?  The answer:  President Barack Obama.  What's the problem?  The problem is that the elected president of the United States is automatically ensconced as America's Commander-in-Chief.  That's because America's first president, George Washington, HAPPENED to be an officer in the American Revolutionary War and thus assumed the position of Commander-in-Chief after the War, too.  Now we have the ridiculous anomaly of all subsequent presidents being automatically appointed as Commanders-in-Chief, even though most of them have never served in the military, especially as a higher-up officer with tactical and strategic training or experience.  That's how we get the ridiculous spectacle of a president like Barack Obama, with no military training or experience, coupled with his ideology of "fundamentally transforming America" -- interpreted as fundamentally destroying America and its fundamental principles -- becoming a Commander-in-Chief who has no clue about how to conduct a foreign war.  And so, since Obama was brainwashed as a youth into fanatical Islam, we should not be surprised that he (1) totally screws up as Commander-in-Chief in the Middle East, while simultaneously (2) leans heavily toward the supporting of fanatical Muslims fighting what he perceives to be America's colonial imperialism.  The facts are becoming rather obvious:  Obama is doing everything possible to destroy the United States, its fundamental documents, and America's principles of individualism -- individual freedoms, individual property rights, and free market capitalism.  Funny -- but not really -- how the ideology and goals of the fanatical Muslims in the Middle East are the very same ideology and goals of the national socialists currently running the White House in America.

--  Mon Aug 18, 2014  Democrats created black ghettoes in all the major cities of America by implementing welfare programs.  Little pockets of socialism.  No fathers, more welfare.  More children, more welfare.  Nobody likes a condescending Big Brother, passing out welfare, insinuating that the recipient has no self respect and is nothing but a welfare slave to the state.  So who represents the state?  The cops in the welfare ghetto.  No wonder blacks in the ghetto hate the cops.  And it doesn't matter whether the cops are black or white or pink or purple.  It's a love-hate relationship caused by the welfare state:  gimme my freebies but I hate you for it.  [Note:  this is true for foreign aid on the international level, too.]  This has been going on since at least the 1960s.  In walks President Barrack Obama in 2008 who is hell bent on implementing more state collectivism, more state welfare to fundamentally change America.  Why?  We don't really care at this point since we have already discussed Obama's fallacious economic sophisms for creating socialism ad nauseum.  Suffice it to say that Obama's intelligence level has never gotten past the bankrupt level of classical Marxist socialism.  The point is, the Obama administration knows how to write Hollywood scripts to take advantage of welfare-created racial issues in any city in America.  So last week, 18-year-old black punk Michael Brown and a gangsta buddy (Dorian Johnson) rob a local store in Ferguson, Missouri, steal $47 worth of cigarillos, rough up the store owner on the way out and then both youths proceed to wander down the middle of Main Street, holding up traffic and hurling insults to police officers who try to get the youths out of the middle of the road and to use the sidewalk.  One version of the story at this point is that the cop who hustled -- or tried to hustle -- Michael Brown and accomplice into a cop car because the two wannabe gangsta youths refused to stop traipsing down Main Street blocking traffic did not know -- or may have known -- that the two youths had just robbed a convenience store.  The youths, however, thought the cop was arresting them for robbing the store and therefore started fighting with the cop in the cop car.  From various reports, Michael Brown punched the cop, grabbed his gun, and fired off a round, missing everybody, and then dashed out of the cop car.  According to witnesses who took a video tape of this proceeding, Michael Brown suddenly turned around and ran back toward the pursuing cop like a mad bull.  The cop and several other cops then shot at Michael Brown when he refused to stop charging after they yelled, "Freeze!"  It took six shots to bring down Michael Brown by at least one white cop.  Downtown Brown, the looter, died on Main Street that day.  All of a sudden, the black Obama administration and the standard black shake-down artists, Al Sharpton et associates, scream the magic welfare ghetto word, "Racism!" and all hell breaks lose.  Ghetto blacks turn into street judges, jury, and executioners as hundreds of mostly black youths break into stores and ransack Main Street.  Like stealing flat screen TVs and clothing is justified because the cops shot a black robber whose actions were caught and broadcasted all over America on national TV.  The Democratic Gov of Missouri calls out the National Guard to quell the riot and President Obama takes a golfing break from his vacation at Martha's Vineyard to show up on national TV and pretend like he is shocked by what he has continued to help set up as America's welfare ghettoes.  Imagine this, Obama can't bring himself to send National Guard troops to the southern border to stop hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants and terrorists from running across the border to the US but it's OK for the National Guard to show up to Ferguson, MO.  Why?  Because the bigger the created "racial" crisis gets in America, the more excuse Obama has of invoking martial law and thus curtailing the 2014 or even the 2016 national elections.  Like this hasn't already been planned out by the Obama administration.  Remember Obama's war cry, "Never let a good crisis go to waste," and this crisis is just one of the many crises that President Obama is implementing to "fundamentally transform America."  Mark my words, President Obama's pretended concern for the race riots in Ferguson is just that:  gross pretension.

--  Sun Aug 17, 2014  Recently published books you should read:  (1)  The Murder of the Middle Class by Wayne Allyn Root, how to save yourself and your family from the criminal conspiracy of the century.  What can you do?  The first step is to recognize who is responsible.  The Murder of the Middle Class exposes the crime and indicts conspirators, from the Obama administration to their willing accomplices in big business, big media, and big unions -- naming names and pointing out their misdeeds.  But Wayne Allyn Root doesn't just prove the crime and profile the suspects, he provides bold solutions to save American capitalism, the middle class, the GOP and YOU!  This middle class warrior gives you the game plan and the weapons to fight back.  Wayne Allyn Root is a former Libertarian vice presidential nominee, political commentator, international speaker, CEO, serial entrepreneur, branding expert, and champion of small business and the middle class.  He appears on hundreds of radio and TV shows annually -- including FOX News -- and serves as executive vice chairman of the Conservative Caucus.  The second must-read book is: (2) Obama's America, Unmaking the American Dream by Dinesh D'Souza.  This is D'Souza's sequel to his hit movie 2016:  Obama's America.  Can America survive four more years of Barack Obama?  No, says D'Souza, because America as we know it -- wealthy, powerful, assertive -- is not what Obama wants.  He wants a smaller America, a poorer America, and America unable to assert its will, and America happy to be one power among many, an America in decline so that other nations might rise -- all in the name of global fairness.  To Obama, the hated "one percent" isn't just wealthy Americans; it is America itself.  In Obama's view, America needs to be taken down a notch.  [Note:  actually, as Ayn Rand would have said, it is the fundamental moral philosophy of America, the ideas of individualism: individual rights, individual freedoms, and individual responsibility that Obama wants to destroy, and replace the fundamental principles that America was founded upon with Obama's fundamental ideas of state collectivism better known as classic Marxist socialism.]  A third book, also written by Dinesh D'Souza that you should read is: (3) America:  Imagine the World Without Her.  This book goes along with D'Souza's latest movie of the same name.  A synopsis from Wikipedia states, "Setting the stage for a presentation of their views, D'Souza and producer Sullivan provide counterfactual histories in which George Washington is killed during the Revolutionary War, or the country is divided following civil war, creating a world without America that would be vastly worse off. He claims modern leftists are 'telling a new story' however, contradicting traditional veneration for America in order to 'convince a nation to author its own destruction' and 'unmake the America that is here now.' He then challenges several 'indictments' made against the country and American Exceptionalism, including sociology professor and activist Michael Eric Dyson's claim that 'Thievery' was the 'critical element' for 'American empire' and historian and activist Ward Churchill's assertion that the US is the world's new evil empire."  D'Souza says, "... 1960s Chicago radical Saul Alinski, historian Howard Zinn, and others have promoted guilt and resentment regarding wealth inequality that has helped shape the political careers of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.

"D'Souza argues that America's wealth has been created, not stolen. He says the $700 used to purchase colonial Manhattan from American Indians could buy many desolate parcels globally today, but that individual industry has made New York real estate worth billions. He states that in Europe, India, and elsewhere most countries have been founded on conquest, and observes that the American pattern of wealth creation hasn't been the universal norm. He cites examples like Arab historian Ibn Khaldun preferring looting to trade and says that merchants form Hinduism’s second-lowest social caste.

"The film argues that American Indians exhibited this "conquest ethic' among themselves, and that most of what American Indian depopulation occurred during European colonization resulted from the accidental transmission of plagues that had earlier devastated Europe, not an intent to wipe out a people. It says modern American Indians have little interest in returning to their hunter-gatherer past. In an interview Senator Ted Cruz compares the Texas Revolution to the American Revolution. Professor and Reconquista advocate Charles Truxillo is contrasted with an interviewed American of Mexican descent who says he has no desire to return to a poverty and crime ridden Mexico and instead wants to live the 'American Dream'.

"D'Souza says that slavery impeded American development, rather than boosting it. The film argues that slavery was an omnipresent phenomenon for most of human history, but that its abolition was 'uniquely Western', noting the rarity of a 'great war fought to end slavery' like the American Civil War. According to the film, the Declaration of Independence essentially says 'liberty is the solution to injustice,' a 'promissory note' cashed throughout history by Americans such as Martin Luther King, Jr.  C.J. Walker, the black entrepreneur and daughter of slaves who is regarded as America's first self made female millionaire, is cited as an example of the type of individual success story the American system allows that is ignored by historians like Zinn because it undermines their leftist narrative. Columbia University economist Jagdish Bhagwati is shown saying that the 'world is embracing the free market,' for which there is 'no reason for us to be apologetic.' The film outlines how free enterprise, consumer choice rather than coercion, has raised living standards by making existing goods cheaper and creating new ones.

"The film challenges the notion that America is a rapacious conqueror by arguing that Americans have sacrificed for human well being around the world, including places like Afghanistan, Iraq, Germany, and Japan, seeking in return only 'enough ground to bury' their dead, as former Secretary of State Colin Powell is quoted as saying. A US veteran of Hanoi Hilton captivity is interviewed discussing his desire to liberate Vietnam. D'Souza reflects on Lincoln's assassination and the continuing cost of freedom, saying that we no longer have past heroes like Washington and Lincoln, but 'we do have us' in 'our struggle for the restoration of America.'”  Both the book and the movie are must-read and must-see for anybody who wants a more objective review of what America is and should continue to be into the future, vs. the national socialist direction that Obama is currently pushing America.

--  Mon Aug 11, 2014  Whoa, girl friends, pull up the barn floor, shut up, listen up, and pour yourselves another hot cup of Rocket Java.  I got an important question:  what if there is no Allah?  I mean, that is the fundamental question in today's terrorist Jihad, isn't it?  If there is no Allah, then it begs all the other subsequent questions such as, why the hell are the Muslims trying to exterminate the Christians and Jews?  Or, who said that if you, as a Muslim, die while taking out a bunch of "Infidels" riding on a bus to work, then you will go to Heaven and hook up with 72 virgins?  What proof do we have that Allah even exists?  Much less the virgins?  Does anybody have a photograph of Allah?  How about a CD, DVR, tape recording, or any other sound or video device of Allah espousing anything?  Or even tap dancing on a camel's back?  So, if nobody in the Caliphate in the Middle East can produce logical proof that Allah exists, why are thousands of Muslim barbarians running all over Iraq, Syria, Jordan, Iran, and even Europe, Africa, and the US shouting crap that Allah told us to do this, Allah told us to do that, etc.?  If you have some proof that Allah exists, just post it on Face Book or Youtube and let the whole world in on your little secret because, I for one, would like to see some proof that Allah exists and that Allah told Muslims like ISIS, the Taliban, Al Qaeda, Al Dummy et al to run all over the desert and shoot everything that moves.  Looks like most wars throughout history have been fought on Fairytale premises just like this.  The war in the Middle East is simply another example.  The truth is that a group of intellectually emasculated Muslim barbarians have simply conjured up a glob of ridiculous fairytales to justify their barbaric behavior.  Christians, Jews, and adherents of all other Earth religions, you might want to question some of the premises of your moral philosophy, too.  As a footnote, those who are mindlessly following every utterance of Billy Meier and the human ET Plejaren might want to rethink some of the translations regarding basic social-political-economics.  And if you think the English language does not provide enough clarity as high German then you can always read this praxeological information in high German since it was an Austrian economist, Ludwig von Mises, who wrote the original 1,000 page dissertation of free market economics in German.  Those of you who in the Billy Meier-Plejaren school of thought think English is just as developed as high German can read it in English.  Are you listening, translators of the Plejaren contact notes, those of you who have fallen for the false baloney that the English language does not lend itself to the nuances and supposed complexities of the German language?  Not referring to the Henoch embedded vibrational codes, of course.  That's another story.  Billy Meier followers should rethink their premises and think for themselves instead of blindly following what could include many economics and political sophisms being put forth by those who have been so long removed from Earth's level of evolution that they no longer can conceive of the intellectual evolutionary stage that we must go through to reach that of the Plejaren's.  I suspect the main problem is an error in translation in that those doing the translations from Plejaranese to English are filtering their translations through left liberal rose-colored glasses.  Those who do not know what I am talking about can log onto www.figu.org and choose English to read all about it.  Still, back to the scene of the crime, there is no Allah and the ISIS terrorists have no logical reason to be performing their barbarous acts anywhere in the world -- same for everybody else in every other nation, too.

--  Fri Aug 08, 2014  Now that the Muslim Brotherhood, ISIS, the Taliban, and Al Qaeda have nearly taken over all of Iraq using American weapons given to them by our "fast and furious" idiot President, our Commander-in-Chief Barack Obama, he dashed onto national TV today to "save a group of cornered Iraqi civilians" by ordering American war planes to bomb ISIS.  That's after telling our Middle Eastern enemies everything tactical and strategic about the mission.  Such as, he will not put any boots on the ground, he will be sending F-16 fighter planes, and the US will be dropping food and water to the cornered civilians at 3 pm Eastern Standard Time.  Why not tell ISIS the names and addresses of the F-16 bomber pilots so the Jihadists in America can target the US pilots' American wives and families?  President Obama is NOT an executive; he is NOT a Commander-in-Chief.  He is strictly a marketeer, a salesman selling his tired old left liberal politics written by Hollywood script writers to all the young university students across America.  He is the mouth piece for branding the Democratic Party.  That is all he knows how to do.  So, what does he do when it's time to go to battle?  He either plays golf or goes onto national TV and reads the US's battle plan ver batim off a teleprompter as if he was selling the Democratic Party for re-election in 2014.  Yes indeed.  I am sending in fighter bombers, vote for me.  They will be flying from the West and North and carrying surface to ground missiles, showing up, oh, how about 2 or 3 pm, if that's OK with you guys in the Muslim Brotherhood?  And if elected, I promise you can keep your doctor, you can keep your current medical plan, and the IRS is not targeting the Tea Party, "not even a smidgeon," deserter Bergdahl is a war hero because I cleverly traded him for releasing five -- count 'em, one, two, three, four, five -- Muslim Brotherhood bad guys from Gitmo so they could get back into the Middle East war.  Maybe we'll see them in New York.  Who knows?  If our battle plans change, I will be sure to show up on national TV and radio and telegraph all our top secret moves to the Taliban and ISIS...because... I'm the Commander-in-Chief, my ratings are down, and we need to beat the Republicans in 2014 and 2016.  Hallelujah and God bless America... and Mohammed... OK, God bless Buddha, too.

--  Thur Aug 07, 2014  Here's an interesting question:  what type of moral philosophy takes hundreds of millions of dollars donated as foreign aid to rebuild schools, hospitals, and churches and instead uses that money to build 40 concrete tunnels from one city to a neighboring city in order to kidnap and murder the target city's inhabitants?  What type of moral philosophy creates a fictitious omniscient that its adherents claim instructs them to wipe out an entire neighboring culture?  We're talking about a fanatical sect of Islam and its adherents called Hamas in the Middle East.  And you can add the Muslim Brotherhood, ISIS, the Taliban, and Al Qaeda to that list of crazies, too.  The target culture that Hamas et al. is trying to eradicate is Israel.  Hamas took over the political scene in the Palestinian Gaza Strip and is pretending that an omniscient has told them to exterminate all Jews in the world.  What kind of moral philosophy is that?  On a universal scale, what type of evolutional intelligence does it take to make this type of claim?  All Palestinians are not members of Hamas.  But one of the problems in the Middle East is that those Palestinians, those Islamists, who claim that they do not believe in the same genocidal tenets as Hamas, are doing nothing to curtail Hamas' Jihad against Israel and the United States.  Not doing anything and keeping one's Islamic mouth shut makes the Do-Nothings just as guilty as the crazies in Hamas.  Silence is the same as going along with the program.  This condition of condoning the war in the Middle East by doing nothing against those who have hijacked one's religion would be tantamount to the major Christian religions in the US standing by and allowing a fanatical group like the KKK to enact a program of genocide against whichever ethnic group the KKK thinks God told them to eradicate.  The illogic of the Islamist fanatics is contradictory and ridiculous at face value:  First Hamas, ISIS, and the Muslim Brotherhood create an omniscient and then they imbue said omniscient with stupid human activities in order to do what an omniscient -- by definition of being all powerful -- doesn't need humans to do for said omniscient.  Why would an omniscient who is all powerful need boob-heads on planet Earth to do what he or she could do all by him/herself?  In fact, why would an all powerful omniscient create a group of people on planet Earth and then ask another group of people to eradicate the former?  It is illogical to create the idea of an omniscient and then attribute human attributes to said omniscient.  That's called anthropomorphism, not to mention contradictory.  If I was a human ET flying by planet Earth in my beam ship and saw what was going on between the major earth religions (moral philosophies), I would probably just shake my head and say, "Pass!"

--  Sat July 26, 2014  Listen up, girl friends.  Pull up the barn floor and pour yourselves another hot cup of Rocket Java.  President Obama has now started a civil war in the United States.  After Congress voted "No" three times against Obama's so-called Dream Act, which was nothing but amnesty for the millions of illegal immigrants who have run across our southern border into the US, Obama then orchestrated a huge influx -- tens of thousands per month -- of illegal immigrant youths from Central America to storm across the Mexican-US border and demand citizenship.  Over 50,000 youths paying thousands of dollars each to drug cartels to ship them to the US border via Mexico have flooded our borders.  This was planned last year by the Obama Administration as they sent out an RFQ (Request For Quote) by the DHS (Dept of Homeland Security) asking for vendors who could supply transportation, shelter, etc. for an expected 65,000 plus immigrants who would be streaming across the border this summer.  I.e., the Obama Administration ORCHESTRATED, that is pre-planned, this entire mess in which children are being trafficked by drug cartels into sex slavery, drug gangs, and bringing in "Uncle Jose" druggies as "relatives" of these poor hapless children.  Jihadist terrorists are also among those flooding the border and they will no doubt pop up later with bombs to help destroy the US.  The Obama Administration has sent thousands of children to all states in the US in an effort to -- as his administration describes it -- redistribute the ethnic makeup of what our imperial President thinks are suburbs that are "too white."  These are the suburban whites that Obama claims should not have fled inner city ghettoes, ghettoes which look like war zones and are a direct result of America's federal and state welfare programs.  And now that Texas Gov Rick Perry has sent 1,000 National Guard soldiers to stop this Obama-created fiasco at the Texas border, President Obama just met yesterday with the Presidents of Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador to discuss the possibility of his (Obama's) issuing another illegal Executive Order to ostensibly pre-qualify those nations' illegal immigrants in their native countries so they will already have "legal papers" and thus be able to just fly into the US without having to first go to Mexico and then running across the border.  This is tantamount to President Obama declaring a civil war against the American taxpayer.  Without using guns or militia, Obama and his socialist czars in the Oval Office are simply issuing new Executive Orders, twisting the law, to invade America.  This is no different than a foreign nation sending hundreds of thousands of "welfare soldiers" to the US to purposely overwhelm our already over-burdened welfare system and thus financially bankrupt the US.  There are two ways to destroy a nation:  guns and bullets or financial bankruptcy.  President Obama is making use of both methods at two different levels:  (1) his latest border fiasco to bankrupt the civil services of America, and (2), the international level, supplying military arms and foreign aid to our enemies in the Middle East.  If one were to sit down in a War Room and try to figure out how to attack, invade, and destroy America, one could not have come up with a better plan than what President Obama is currently inflicting upon the United States.  From implementing ObamaCare to using the IRS to target Americans to all the other illegal imperial orders he is issuing, President Obama has now totally emasculated the US Congress and pulled the Judicial Dept -- run by his buddy US AG Eric Holder -- into his Executive Dept.  There are no longer three branches of government.  There is only one:  Dictator Obama and his Imperial Executive Dictatorship, running an 18th Century Marxist Playbook.  Look around you:  Pied Piper Obama has implemented Marxist state collectivism against the American people, against our Founding Fathers' moral philosophical principles of individual rights and responsibilities embedded in the US Constitution.  On the international level, Obama has created the groundwork for WW III as he supports the Middle East Caliphate bombing the crap out of Israel and many Middle Eastern nations.  This was all easily predicted back in 2008 as soon we saw who Obama hung out with and how he was educated.  Then again, what does all of this say about the voters who voted for Barack Obama?  And the so-called intellectuals who are running our educational institutions?  Who is John Galt?  Better yet, where is Ragnar Danneskjold?

--  Tues July 22, 2014  News Flash!!  Court ruling means Idaho could have avoided ObamaCare mandates, taxes.  According to a recent report from Wayne Hoffman's Idaho Freedom Foundation, "A federal appeals court ruling means Idaho needlessly exposed its residents and businesses to Obamacare's employer and individual mandates by creating a state insurance exchange," Idaho Freedom Foundation President Wayne Hoffman said today.  "The U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Tuesday that the Internal Revenue Service erred when it wrote rules allowing insurance subsidies in states that have not set up a state insurance exchange.  Under the plain wording of the Obamacare statute, individuals and businesses are subject to Obamacare penalties in states where tax subsidies are available, but those subsidies are only available in states that choose a state insurance exchange.  In other words, states that do not set up a state exchange shield their residents and businesses from possible Obamacare penalties; states that do develop an insurance exchange, as Idaho did, can use the subsides, but they're also exposed to penalties.  Idaho Freedom Foundation and the Cato Institute provided these details to state lawmakers and Governor Otter on multiple occasions, but they chose to establish a state exchange anyway.  This ruling validates our position that the state not only didn't need to establish an insurance exchange but that also that Idaho's exchange has become the vehicle for enforcing Obamacare's penalty provisions," said Hoffman, who was a member of the Governor's 2012 taskforce studying the possibly of creating an insurance exchange. "We encourage lawmakers and the governor to keep monitoring this issue and consider action necessary to protect the state, its residents and businesses from Obamacare's taxes and penalties. If the ruling stands, it means repealing the state exchange.  The ruling likely faces additional appeals and the case could ultimately land in the U.S. Supreme Court."  [Note:  As Freemarketduck has stated over and over that Idaho's setting up of an Obamacare socialist state health care exchange would mean that we would then be subject to all the enforcement rules of Obamacare and leave us with no legal recourse to refute those rules, we have now seen exactly what this means, from this recent US Court of Appeals.  Thanks a lot Gov Otter for, once again, erroneously interpreting what happens when you join forces with the federal government, accept their statist premises, and try to appease and compromise with state collectivist ideologies.  Obama and his thugs in Washington DC needed the sanction of their victims, and that is exactly what you, Gov Otter, provided to them when you voluntarily forced Idaho into Obamacare.]

--  Sun July 20, 2014  Hot diggity dog!  Russia has now shot down a commercial airliner flying 33,000 feet over the Ukraine, killing several hundred passengers and crew aboard.  President Obama and his cigar-smoking commie czars in the White House must be sitting around laughing their little butts off about their good fortune.  Now all the major news media have dashed over to yesterday's airliner blowup and stopped reporting on Obama's illegal trafficking of thousands of Hispanic children into America to destroy our suburbs.  Hooray!  Saved by a Putin plane crash.  Last week it was the trafficking of thousands of illegal immigrant children from Central America that saved -- saved?? -- Obama from his IRS Director and Lois "blank stare" Lerner's "missing emails" on all her and other IRS officials' supposedly "crashed hard drives" -- which everybody knows is NOT where emails are stored -- that reveal how the Obama Administration was purposely targeting Conservative political groups in denying them 501 c 4 exemption status.  And the week before that, the same IRS debacle saved Obama from the Bergdahl-5 bad Jihadists from Gitmo debacle.  And the week before the Bergdahl trade for 5 bad Jihadists from Gitmo, it was... never mind... it just goes on and on and on.  This president is working overtime to create as many national crises as possible in order to stymie Congress and the American people.  Nobody seems to know what to do.  The Founding Fathers set up 3 branches of government as a check and balance on each other but nobody thought of setting up a government solution that could take care of a President and DOJ who are conspiring to take down the government and crash it into total civil war.  The President totally ignores Congress's laws and simply issues his own Executive Orders that countermand the nation's laws with a US Attorney General who refuses to do anything about it.  Congress says they can defund Obama's programs but guess what?  The private Federal Reserve can print up as much credit and fake paper as they want and fork it over to President Obama in all sorts of ways, openly and clandestine.  The CIA receives money not in the US budget.  Obama has already used budgets in all the major bureaus in the nation, FDA, EPA, etc. to buy up as much ammunition for firearms that he can get away with in order to create a severe shortage of ammunition for American citizens who refuse to give up their guns.  Obama has signed into law his ability to declare martial law and if he can do that, then he and his national thugs can take over the US Treasury and create as much real or phony money as they want.  Plus ration all goods and services.  The only question left today is: what crisis is the Obama Administration planning right now during this temporary news break focusing on the shooting down of a commercial airliner by the Russians in the Ukraine?  Maybe Abduhl qua Jose running across our southern border is hooking up the wires in his suitcase nuke while sitting in his room at one of our major city's whoop-tee-doo hotels?  Nobody checks suitcases in hotels.  Maybe there are 10 Abduhls performing this same function all across America?  Kaboom!  Whaddaya know?  Time for Obama's martial law and rations and NO ELECTIONS.  How clever...  Welcome to the Pied Piper's Saul Alinksy invasion and takeover of the United States...  looky looky at my left hand while I stab you in the back with my right hand... and then blame it all on the Tea Party...

--  Wed July 16, 2014  The method to Obama's Border Madness is that he is purposely flooding the US southern border with illegal immigrant children from Honduras, Guatemala, El Salvador, and Mexico in order to redistribute what he calls the unfair demographics of ethnicity in America's suburbs.  In other words, Obama's racist czars are not only using former President George Bush's absurd law that allows illegal immigrants under 18 years of age from non-contiguous countries in South America to NOT be deported, he is also conspiring -- that's right, CONSPIRING -- with HUD's (Housing and Urban Development) bureau called Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH) to bus, fly, or transport by whatever means possible, thousands of illegal immigrants from our southern borders to middle and northern American cities.  Specifically, the feds are sending illegal immigrants to suburbs of predominantly white ethnic communities -- without informing the Governors or anybody else in those states and communities.  In short, because all kinds of people -- black, white, Hispanic, Asian, and probably Martians in green suits -- fled most all of America's inner cities, because they are crime-ridden ghettoes that were created by the federal government's welfare programs, the Obama Administration is hell bent on turning America's suburbs into outer city ghettoes with new federal welfare programs.  In short, the Obama Administration reasons that inner city ghettoes were created because "whites" fled to the suburbs.  Obama is claiming that it is a racial issue rather than a government welfare problem.  So he is now intent on dragging illegal immigrant Hispanic children and their families to the suburbs to "solve" this problem by implementing socialist welfare programs there.  As if socialist welfare programs in the suburbs will turn out differently than socialist welfare programs in our major cities.  The problem of crime and poverty in our inner cities is not due to whites fleeing to the suburbs.  The problem is socialist welfare programs per se, not the fleeing of whites, or anybody else, to the suburbs.  It is becoming more and more obvious that President Obama is turning into an Imperialistic dictator and becoming very vindictive when Congress and ordinary citizens rebuke him for his socialist actions.  In his zeal to redistribute the ethnic demographics of suburbia in America, Obama has turned into a trafficker of human beings, specifically children, in a mad attempt to implement his national socialist political objectives.  Obama is implementing the very racism he says suburbanites created by fleeing America's ghettoes.  His solution is ridiculous because his stated "problem" is false.  Socialist welfare programs in America's major cities is not due to whites fleeing to suburbia. Obama's continual attack against the ideas of freedom embedded in our US Constitution and Bill of Rights shows that he is a stupid individual, not an intelligent person who follows objective logic and reason.  We do not need the government to spend hundreds of millions of dollars to ship illegal immigrants to communities in a wild ass attempt to play social engineering games with Americans.  Obama should be careful since he is walking a thin line now as even Democrats are beginning to wise up to his true intentions and actions.  It is rumored that border patrol agents in the DHS are refusing to allow their DHS bosses to send in swat teams against suburban protestors who are blocking busloads of Illegals to travel into their communities.  There is mutiny in the border patrol ranks, as border patrol officers are refusing to act against their fellow American citizens.  Hopefully this will get back to the Central American countries and thus bring a halt to Obama's Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing bull$hit program.  Oh by the way, how many Abduhls are sneaking across the border with suitcase nukes, pretending to be Jose, Maria's uncle, in this latest Obama fiasco?  Raise your hand if you still think Obama is not intentionally trying to destroy what he thinks is "imperialist" America.

--  Tues July 15, 2014  A Texas rancher near the Mexican border where thousands of Illegals traipse across his property every year discovered an interesting book along his fence line:  an Urdu to English/English to Urdu dictionary.  What is Urdu?  Urdu is the major native language of Pakistan.  Conclusion:  some of the Illegals traipsing across our southern borders are not South Americans, they are Middle Easterners.  One can assume that these Middle Eastern Illegals are quite possibly Jihadist terrorists blending in with Illegals from Mexico, Honduras, and Guatemala who the Obama Administration have encouraged to flood across America's borders to overwhelm our border patrol.  How did the Obama Administration accomplish this?  By sending information to said above nations that if they send youths 18 years or younger, or said youths accompanied by relatives, they cannot be deported under recent American law signed by former Prez George Bush.  How do we know that the Obama Administration purposely planned this Illegal immigration from non-contiguous South American countries?  Simple.  We have the proof.  In Feb 2014, the Dept of Homeland Security sent out an RFQ -- Request for Quote -- to venders who could accommodate -- food, clothing, transportation -- a huge influx of Illegals from Central America, which the RFQ said could exceed over 65,000 immigrants this summer, 2014.  In other words, the Obama Administration not only communicated this information to Central American nations, they set up a budget to pay for this mass exodus, and asked vendors to bid on it.  The RFQ email is easily obtained on the Internet.  In addition, the US sends hundreds of millions of dollars in foreign aid to each of these Central American nations each year -- as well as some $500 million annually to Mexico, God only knows what for.  All of these nations' governments are in cahoots with their local drug cartels running the Obama Administration's abuse of children immigration scheme.  Last year, some 6,000 or so Illegal youths ran across the border.  This year it is over 55,000.  Next year it is estimated to be over 150,000.  This is truly an abuse of children that Obama is participating in since many of the children are sexually abused en route and sent into "sex slave" markets once they leave their home country.  To say that President Obama doesn't know about this child abuse means that he doesn't have a clue about what his Dept of Homeland Security is doing or else he does know and doesn't give a damn.  The fact is, Obama refuses to even look into this problem because it is obvious from his recent TV appearances that he supports it and even helped create it.  Whether Obama is aware of the Middle Eastern terrorists who are coming across the border with the Illegal South Americans, we don't know.  But we can guess.  If he doesn't know, he's not paying attention to his daily intelligence reports.  If he does know, he's guilty as hell for the future havoc that may result from his dereliction of duty.  In addition, the Obama Administration has sent tons of lawyers to the border to help the Illegals immigrate into the US and has forbid DHS employees to take cell phone pictures for the news media as well as making each DHS employee sign a nondisclosure agreement to keep this information quiet.  This constitutes malice aforethought and proves the point that Obama has placed himself in a position of treason against America.  And, our US DOJ Eric Holder, is standing firm with President Obama on this issue.  That means the Dept of Justice, in cahoots with the Executive Dept, is purposely laying the groundwork for another possible internal Jihadist attack against America.  Why?  All you have to do is look at who Obama and Holder grew up with, who influenced their social-political-economic views and you have your answer.  And all of this -- all of it -- was known long before Obama was elected President of the US.  Of course if anybody were to bring this up, they would be called a racist.  Look for a future incident by Jihadists in America, and then prepare for Obama to call for martial law, suspending the Bill of Rights and the US Constitution which he has publicly spoken against throughout his entire life.  He has told you in no uncertain terms where he stands and what he is intending to do to America.  Believe him, he really means it.  He is the Pied Piper for many youths, not just American suckers who were brought under his spell and voted for him, but also South American suckers who are being enticed into the US by drug coyotes.  In the long run, this is a case of the blind leading the blind.

--  Fri July 11, 2014  Lest you think America could never reach the hyper-inflation absurdities of Germany's Weimar Republic, you are witnessing this process right now as it unfolds in Washington, DC.

Economic History Lesson 101A, Weimar Republic, Germany, 1920s  In 1914, Germany’s Fed Reserve, the Reichsbank, suspended conversion of its paper money into gold.  By November 1923, after continual “injections of liquidity,” Reich Marks in circulation soared past 92.8 quintillion Marks and skyrocketed past 496 quintillion Marks through July of 1924.  On Oct 25, 1923, the Reichsbank apologized that it had been able to only print 120 quadrillion Marks that day, but the demand was for one quintillion Marks.  Finally, after nobody would accept the Mark, the Reichsbank devalued to a new Rentenmark convertible at 1 trillion to one.  By Nov 1923, circulation had increased 245 billion times and prices 1,380 billion times.  Inflation finally stopped in one day when 4.2 Rentenmarks (4.2 trillion old Marks) exchanged for 1 Dollar, which was convertible into gold.  Germany, via the Dollar, finally went back to the gold standard, after destroying its entire economy in 9 years through hyperinflation of its non-backed paper money. – Dr. H. Hazlitt, Economist

Sound familiar?

Today, in 2014, after FDR dumped the gold standard in 1933 and Nixon cut all dollar ties to gold in 1971, our derivative markets currently exceed a half a quadrillion dollars or $680,000,000,000,000 – six hundred trillion dollars – of non-collateralized paper fueled by America’s central bank, the Federal Reserve.  And what is it that everybody is screaming for more of?  The injection of trillions and trillions of more non-collateralized paper money as “liquidity” to “spur” the “growth” of the economy.

--  Sun June 29, 2014  Now that the US has lost the war in Iraq, and the Mulsim Jihadists have taken back most of the major cities in Iraq, President Obama is sending 300 military "ADVISORS" --  really, "advisors?" -- back into that hell hole in order to... do what?  Nobody knows since there is never a stated objective to the war in the Middle East.  Is it to retrain the same American-trained Iraqi military deserters who threw down their weapons and uniforms the minute they saw the ISIS Jihadists storming across the desert?  The US taxpayer has spent a trillion dollars to:  build the largest consulate in the world in Baghdad, supply Iraq with military weapons from guns and bullets to tanks and rocket propelled grenades and uniforms and lollipops for whichever Muslim regime happens to be in charge at any given time, and nothing has stopped the onslaught of the Muslim Jihadists in the Middle East.  In fact, all of these military supplies -- what a shock -- have now fallen into the hands of the Muslim Jihadists and are being used against us.  Follow the money.  The Federal Reserve is cleaning up by printing up trillions of non-backed Petro Dollars and financing the Middle East war.  The Military Industrial Complex is cleaning up selling tons of equipment to the Camel Drivers of the Middle East.  Obama and Hillary are bungling everything by trying to run guns in a "fast and furious" debacle to whom they thought were our supporters with weapons ending up in the wrong hands.  When Obama and Hillary tried to fix their bungling, the result was the Benghazi murders of our US Ambassador and others in Libya.  Obama claimed the US was out of the Middle East, the war was over, we won, la-dee-dah and Michelle Obama is busy sucking on purple lollipops at the Vatican.  Give us a break, Mr. President.  Did we learn nothing from Vietnam, where we sent in thousands of "advisors" over and over until we finally had to cut and run, leaving Saigon to the Viet Cong, Chicoms, and NVA?  Wake up Obama; read a history book.  Hint:  you cannot "PARTNER" with Third World nations to fight their petty little civil wars unless you are serious about fighting it no holds barred.  Otherwise, it will backfire on you.  As usual, the Third World "trainees" will take your money and run, and then revolt against you.  For many reasons.  Social, political, economic, cultural.  Now that the war in Iraq is ha-ha "over," and the Muslim Jihadists are storming back in and taking over, Obama wants to send $500 million more dollars to the Syrian Army to help fight against the ISIS Jihadists storming across Iraq.  But wait.  We already did that.  May I remind the President that the composition of the ISIS Jihadists storming across Iraq include those who the US previously supplied money and arms to in Syria, Iraq, Iran, Jordan, and Lower Slobovia.  We are simply financing our own destruction with no logical military, social, political or economic objective in mind.  If you are really going to fight a war, then fight it.  Otherwise, why not just lock yourself in a room and throw hand grenades at your own ass?  When will the US politicians learn that until the people themselves in the Middle East rise up against the Muslim Jihadists instead of just sitting there with their thumbs up their butts, no amount of American or any other foreign aid will change the social political economics of the Middle East.  Like Vietnam, politicians should not be running the war.  Anybody with half a brain can figure out that President Obama's actions are about 2 millimeters away from outright supporting the Muslim Brotherhood and the Caliphate now forming in the Middle East.  On the US home front of this same battle, look for Muslim terrorists sneaking across the Mexican-US border mixed in with Obama's purposely-created onslaught of Central American youth flooding across our southern borders to create a crisis for ICE and our border patrol.  This, too, will backfire as these hidden terrorists could easily bring in suitcase nukes, fan out across the US to hook up with their clandestine "bros" and detonate said bombs anywhere in the US.  After which time, Obama can then claim martial law, which will ignite a US civil war, and then it could escalate into WW III throughout Europe as their enclaves of millions of Muslim Jihadists living in European ghettoes revolt against their host countries.  I'm talking about France, Germany, Britain, etc.  Pay attention Americans.  Obama's Daily Dose of Crises all across the US is becoming very revealing -- and tiresome.  It's his idea of an American Caliphate:  The IRS debacle, the NSA folly, the VA Medical Joke, the Bergdahl-Gitmo Trade Absurdity, the Borderless Border Bombshell, and the ObamaCare Fiasco, to mention just a few.  President Obama has BIG plans for you and they all revolve around his "fundamentally changing America" to pay for what he thinks is the "Imperialism" and "Colonialism" by America in the past.  Just like Mommy and Daddy taught him.  And, so far, nobody is stopping Obama, The Pied Piper, who history is already revealing will probably be the worst president ever for the US.  Philosophically speaking, we are in a war of the individual vs. the collective, a war of ideas:  individual/private property rights and responsibilities vs. the Omnipotent Collectivist State.  So far, the Collectivist State is winning.  Welcome to The Borg.

--  Sun June 22, 2014  Pour yourselves another hot cup of Rocket Java, girl friends.  Looks like we now live in the novel '1984' in which up is down, left is right, black is white, and non-existent WMDs in Iraq have suddenly appeared out of nowhere right in the middle of Iraq.  The ISIS Muslim Jihadists have now taken over a big chunk of Iraq, including a compound at which Saddam Hussein stored chemical and biological weapons of mass destruction.  Hey, wait a minute.  Up until two weeks ago, all the news media in America have been reporting for a decade that the US invaded Iraq and found no WMDs.  Now, all the news media are reporting that ISIS Jihadists are in control of Saddam Hussein's non-existent WMDs.  So which is it?  Was Saddam Hussein harboring WMDs or not?  Are we living in Alice in Wonderland in which for 10 years there are no WMDs in Iraq and then all of a sudden there are now WMDs?  Welcome to the world in which the Cheshire Cat stands on his own head, mice pop up out of tea pots singing, "Twinkle, twinkle lit bat, how I wonder where're you're at," and blonde babes fall down rabbit holes to discover the Queen of Hearts.  Uh-huh.  Next thing you know, Barack Obama will turn up with a real birth certificate showing how he was born at the Alamo in San Antonio, Texas, on the 4th of July and fought alongside Jim Bowie.

--  Sun June 15, 2014  OK, It's Sunday.  What new crisis has the Obama Administration created now?  At the beginning of last week, like Monday, it was the VA Medical crisis.  70% of the VA Medical centers across the US were creating fraudulent lists of VA signups in order to lie to their bosses in Washington about what a wonderful job they were doing for our military veterans so Administrators in the VA medical facilities could pull down big salary raises.  Then, for Tuesday's crisis of the day, the President traded US Army deserter Sgt Bowe Bergdahl for the release of five hardened Taliban mass murderers from Gitmo.  This was done to (a) cover up the VA Medical Mess dominating the news media, and (b) allow Obama to openly support the Muslim Brotherhood while pretending to save one poor, captured, tortured soldier who -- lies upon lies -- "honorably served" in the US Army.  Then, by Wednesday, we had Obama's next "created crisis" -- right out of his socialist playbook:  tens of thousands of South American illegals ran across our southern borders to claim, "Yarriba, OK, I surrender, send me to Detroit or Honolulu."  Hundreds of thousands of illegals who are under age 18 and thus cannot be "legally" deported turned in their coupons for free tickets to ride to any city in the US.  Yahoo for Obama, trying to create a bigger Democratic voting class by playing Border Santa Claus.  Then, for Friday's crisis of the day to cover up all the news about the illegals storming across the border to become future Democrats, Obama revealed how he had no idea whatsoever that the Islamic-Syrian-Iraqi-Dinkleberries (ISIS) had blitzkrieged across most of Iraq, taking no prisoners, reclaiming major cities, and were on the verge of taking back Baghdad.  Where was Obama during his intelligence briefing on Thursday?  Who knows, but on Friday he jumped into his Air Force One Playboy Jet, flew off to California and and gave a fund-raiser speech to students at Low to No IQ High School.  In the afternoon, he played golf in Palm Springs which has over 120 golf courses in the middle of a water drought.  What's Obama going to do about Iraq?  Nothing since it was, multiple choice:  (a) George Bush's fault, (b) we have the Taliban "on the run," (c) everything is "looking stable and secure," or (d) I hope Ghana beats the US in the World Cup next Monday because I like basketball.  For those who still don't get it, Obama is purposely creating crisis after crisis after crisis via the Saul Alinsky Revolution by Crisis Method that he learned from Marxist Mommy and Daddy and Granny and Grandpa -- plus tutors on Mercer Island in Seattle during his youth -- to totally overthrow America's Constitution and free market capitalism.  So what is the new big Saul Alinsky crisis that Obama and his Behind The Scenes Brown Shirts plan on staging?  Martial law?  A civil war?  World War III?  Hey, what ever happened to the initial atrocity against America called ObamaCare?

--  Sat June 14, 2014  Wow, Border Babies Invade US Southern Borders.  What a coincidence that tens of thousands -- soon to be hundreds of thousands -- of Guatemalan, Honduran, Mexican, and other Hispanic youths under age 18 have all shown up simultaneously to dash across the borders of our southern states:  Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, and California.  After dashing across the border and purposely running right into the arms of the astonished American border patrol, the illegal immigrants smooch them and yell, "OK, I give up!"  Since it's against the law to deport youths 18 years or younger, the American border patrol has no other choice except to sign them up as "visitors," hand them a piece of paper to sign that says, "Uh-huh, you betchum, I promise to return to the local courthouse in San Antonio or Nogales or Dry Gulch next Tuesday to plead my case," and then the border patrol gives them a free ticket -- courtesy of the American taxpayers -- to go to ANY city they want in the United States.  Of course, the illegal immigrants NEVER show up to court and hippity-hop with their cell phones to whatever city they choose.  I'd pick Honolulu.  Surf's up.  How about you?  The Big Question is:  who sent out the email to everybody in South America advertising that it's Free Immigration Season in the United States?  Some political analysts say it's just part of President Barack Obama's Big Plan to "fundamentally transform America."  All the hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants pouring into the US over our southern borders are expected to be very grateful to Uncle Obama, their new Sugar Santa Claus, by voting for Obama's National Socialist Party, aka the Democrats, in the very near future.  It would be rather hilarious if the new illegals jumped party lines and voted instead for the Republicans.  Like, what do they know about one political party from another?  Most of them can't even spell "Obama."  If the GOP was smart, they would send Welcome Wagons filled with tacos and pinatas and yell, "Welcome to America, vote for me!"  Too bad nobody is passing out free birth control pills, too.  Oh, by the way, how many Al Qaeda terrorists with the knowledge about how to build nuclear suitcase bombs are sneaking across the border with all the illegals?  Apparently nobody knows and, what's worse, Obama doesn't really care.

--  Sat May 31, 2014  Obama dumped VA Health Secretary Eric Shinseki yesterday not because of all the deaths and mismanagement that have been going on over the last umpteen years at the VA Medical centers but rather because he has to cover up the fact that what happened at the VA medical centers is exactly what socialized health care -- specifically ObamaCare -- must inexorably morph into in the future.  The problem is not personnel; the problem is the system per se, the state collectivist nature of the system.  What happened at the VA would never have happened in a free market.  Heads would have rolled a long time ago and any medical system that operated as the VA did would have gone bankrupt.  Medical clients in an open market would have immediately opted out for another competing medical facility.  The VA medical debacle in which vets were not put on waiting lists, never seen by doctors, and other vets put on fake lists for two weeks after waiting on another list for months or years so the fake two-week list could be sent to VA bosses in Washington in order to obtain salary raises and bonuses is exactly the type of socialist bureaucratic crap that will occur under ObamaCare.  That is why President Obama had to quickly dismiss VA Sec Shinseki: to stop the continued investigation and get on with the pretended solution to this socialist VA medical problem.  Think about it:  why couldn't the VA medical system simply be a voucher system in which returning vets could go to their own private doctors?  We didn't have to create a state collectivist VA medical system, but we did.  And now we see the results.  Is anybody learning from this?  It's no different than the socialist medical systems in Sweden, Britain, Germany, Cuba, China, the former USSR and all other countries that have tried socializing their health care systems.  And this goes for all commodities or services in the market, not just health care.  The postal service, Amtrak, etc. lose billions of dollars every quarter and still we persist in financing these economic albatrosses.  Will America learn its lesson from the VA health care debacle?  Probably not.  Because Americans do not see it as endemic to the system of state collectivism; they see the problem as one of personnel.  Just change the guy in charge and socialism -- if they even recognize it as such -- will work, they think.  It's not the socialist in charge that makes the system unworkable; it's the system itself.  Mainly because it violates all universal laws such as the Law of Identity and the Law of Cause and Effect.  Socialism is simply Communism on the installment plan.  The US will end up in a civil war and an international war unless Americans finally figure out that state collectivism -- Barack Obama's and Hillary Clinton's progressive socialism -- is the problem.  Free minds and free markets are the answer, not more government controls.

--  Tue May 27, 2014  Everybody should take a good look at how the US Veterans hospitals are run.  The are a foreshadowing of how the ObamaCare national health care system will run, only much much worse since it will be huge.  Notice that not only are the VA medical facilities not responsive to their clients, they have fabricated phony lists to report to their bosses in Washington DC how great they are doing.  Two medical lists:  one listing when the veteran first called or signed up for care, and then another list -- a false list -- of updated calls and sign ups for care for the months or years AFTER the real doctor's visit or call.  In other words, the VA centers were lying to their bosses in DC, rigging the updated listing of patient visits to show that the patients were being taken care of in a timely fashion when, in reality, patients were lingering for months or years without any contact or care whatsoever.  Some 40 or more patients died while waiting for the VA medical center to respond to them.  No hospital in the private sector would dare treat their clients this way.  They would soon go out of business.  But government bureaucracies do not have to respond to their clients, only their Washington DC bosses to get pay raises.  Watch out Americans.  If you think the VA medical debacle is bad, wait until we get full blown ObamaCare.

--  Fri May 16, 2014  What's the Vatican up to lately?  Pope Francis says all governments should redistribute their peoples' wealth to the poor, downtrodden masses.  How droll.  How about if Pope Francis and His Merry Gang of Cardinals redistribute their $10 fricking billion dollars worth of art, gold, silver, and bank accounts to all the poor, downtrodden masses first, you know, as a sign of good faith -- pun intended?  I mean, what the hell -- pun intended -- is one of the major Earth religions doing with billions and billions of dollars worth of idol worship and other Earthly junk?  Rumor has it that two previous Popes were actually poisoned (made to look like a heart attack, beep-beep, heart attack, uh huh, you bet) by an inner circle of Vatican Cardinals who were being investigated for siphoning off millions of bucks for themselves.  So Pope Francis is proposing all governments institute altruistic state collectivism -- a polite term for socialism, fascism, and communism -- as great forms of social political economic institutions.  Has Pope Francis not read recent history of the last 100 years?  Does he really not understand how socialism in all countries that have tried it has turned into the most murderous regimes ever recorded, including the Holocaust?  Has he not been to North Korea, Communist China, the former USSR, the Middle East, Cuba and on and on?  Does Pope Francis have his holy history-head stuck up his dumbed down derriere?  Has he not heard of individual rights and free markets as the best provider and natural distributor of wealth in the entire history of humankind on planet Earth?  Capitalism has lifted millions up out of poverty while socialism has enslaved and murdered millions.  What are we supposed to think of the moral philosophy of the Vatican when the Head Cardinal, Pope Francis, utters such social political economic nonsense as redistributing the wealth created by producers?

--  Fri May 16, 2014  Just spent the last hour listening to the Idaho Governor debates on Idaho Public TV. Coupla loons in there, for sure.

Who won?

Well, it wasn't Harvey D. Brown, the crazy biker and it wasn't Bayes the Bearded Bible Banger.

The fact that everybody knows that Gov Otter insisted on including Brown and Bayes in the Governor's debate does not bode well for him. I think Senator Russ Fulcher will gain a few notches on the votes in next Tuesday's Primary Elections because most individuals in Idaho hate ObamaCare (implemented by Gov Otter), dislike federal control of education (Common Core), and want the feds off Idaho lands. Those are the issues and everybody knows Gov Otter has failed miserably on all of them.  The other important issue -- as Senator Russ Fulcher pointed out -- is that Idaho's budget is 36% in hock to the federal government.  What does that mean?  That means the federal government currently owns Idaho.  If Idaho doesn't do what the feds say, Washington pops the monetary tit right out of Idaho's mouth and forces us into bankruptcy.  Think Idaho education dollars; think think health care dollars; think all kinds of other money and earmarks coming to Idaho from the federal government.  It's like being in extortion debt to The Mob.  How does one ever get out from under it?  And who pays for this?  49 other states through taxation and hyperinflation of our monetary system by the Federal Reserve, printing up bogus dollars.  Idaho is somebody's slave and that somebody is the federal government.  President Obama says, "JUMP!" and Gov Otter says, "HOW HIGH?"  Because Otter thinks he's a "realist."

It doesn't matter how many Idaho legislators were tricked into voting for ObamaCare, initially, by Gov Otter and his insurance cronies. It matters what the majority of voters think today, NOW, after seeing all the dismal results of ObamaCare at the national level, and the BLM land grab fiasco in Nevada last month.

Also, RomneyCare just went belly up in Taxachussets.  Another RINO who pushed for ObamaCare.  ObamaCare totally failed in Maryland and Oregon. The FBI is investigating the Oregon health care failure, which lost millions of dollars.  Same for many other states who can't spell "free market" for health care, education, or any other market commodity.  Current high health care costs are not due to a free market.  They are due to previous presidents' Lyndon Johnson and George Bush governmental interference into the health care market.

When Otter says as Governor, one must face "reality" -- he said it over and over -- he was claiming that he must cave to the "reality" of Washington DC. Namely, the presumed power of the federal government. This is how all national dictators gain power: they obtain the sanction of their victims. Obama gained the sanction of Gov Otter.  Gov Otter has thus made Idaho a "victim" and has, acquiesced to federal power. That's how the victims turn into supporters of their own oppressors, granting them power, thinking that later, some day, they will overcome their national dictators, which rarely happens. Example, Austria in the 1930s, was tricked by the Third Reich into becoming a victim in order to receive "free" education, "free" health care, and voted 98% to become part of Hitler's German Regime.  Then Adolph lowered the boom and the victims who sanctioned their own chains found out, too late. Fast forward to Idaho and Gov Otter. History repeats itself.  Welcome to Atlas Shrugged.

All in all, the left Liberal Idaho Statesman and the left Liberal panelists asking the questions won the Governor's debate in that they got to host a GOP RINO circus on Idaho Public TV that was probably picked up by national news syndicates. Left Liberal House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi probably tuned in and had her first orgasm. But, I also think that Idaho's Senator Fulcher gained a lot of credibility because he stuck to his points and was the most "normal" person in the debate. Fulcher has a very good chance of winning the Governorship and then everybody will forget about the two loonies that Gov Otter foisted upon the IPTV debates.

--  Sun May 11, 2014  If you haven't been paying attention to politics over the last five years, the Obama Administration has committed a whole host of unlawful actions against the American people, all on the premise that those in power know what's best for everybody else.  Senator Ted Cruz and others have listed some 75 or so violations of the law, among them being Obama's taking over of General Motors, stripping the original investors of their stock holdings, and giving the proceeds to the United Auto Workers Union (the UAW), implementing an unlawful act to force Americans to purchase an economic commodity whether they want to or not, namely nationalized health care, running guns and ammo to the wrong terrorists in Libya and covering up a murderous attack against our Libyan Embassy when attempting to buy back the weapons, blaming the attack on a ridiculous Youtube movie by some Hollywood loonie which has since been disproved as the cause of the Libyan terrorist attack, allowing and encouraging the IRS to selectively target Conservative political groups -- and not one Democratic group -- who tried to qualify for tax exempt status, the President claiming he was born in the US and thus qualifies to be a US President when all evidence points to the opposite with witnesses dying left and right, and the list goes on and on ad infinitum.  In fact, that is part of the Obama national socialist policy to completely usurp the US Constitution and drag the entire United States into a socialist political culture in keeping with all the Marxist and state collectivist claptrap that he was taught by his parents and educational mentors throughout his life.  That the American Democrats, US left Liberals and European socialists -- and perhaps, depending on whether German translations are correct, even the Plejaren and/or their followers in the Billy Meier movement -- have not been able to see, to easily predict, what is obvious to even the most casual Libertarian or Tea Party American, is extremely distressing since they are walking right into the typical trap set by the altruistic state collectivists past and present  (among which include past tyrants such as Mussolini, Hitler, Mao, Stalin, Lenin, Chavez, and Castro to mention just a few) and now our current wanna-be tyrants, such as Barack Obama and former Sec of State Hillary Clinton.  What is preventing the above-mentioned categories of social political economic observers from extrapolating that which philosophers such as Ayn Rand explicitly made crystal clear?  Why can't they see where the current actions of the Obama Administration -- or the beginning actions of historical state collectivists -- will inexorably lead to?  Left Liberals and socialists in the US and Europe as well as individuals in most other nations on Earth have a lame excuse:  they are not thinking logically and only think in terms of disconnected thought globs instead of logically-related concepts.  State collectivisms are so illogical they must re-think every single action as if those actions were new or do not fall into previously thought-out concepts long ago disproved.  Thus, nothing makes sense to them and they have to re-invent their conceptual "wheels" for every social political and economic act.  Most of the time they get it wrong and obviously cannot or do not connect the conceptual dots.  Adding to this, the left Liberal socialists think that everything is relative, malleable, and not an objective absolute.  To them, there are no universal laws, in physics or political economy.  Black can be white, a train can be a cup, water can be sand, depending on the moment, thus violating the basic universal law of identity.  Extrapolating to social political economics, robbery can now be a simple "redistribution" of wealth.  National health care forced down everybody's throats -- a violation of individual rights -- becomes an OK economic policy.  Once these immoral outrages become commonplace law, all truths can be thrown out the window.  Robbery, murder, and looting by the government become the law.  The law becomes opposite of the truth.  The concept that all individuals are born with rights to their own bodies, minds, and souls gets thrown out the moral philosophical window as the "rights of the recipient" of robberies, murders, and looting by the government become accepted and sanctioned by the victims themselves.  All based upon who can "prove" they are the most "needy."  Witness how Americans continue to vote for those politicians who abuse their rights.  And that is exactly where we are on planet Earth today:  the altruistic state collectivists in all nations have now obtained the sanction of their victims.  Even those in the universe who claim that all individuals have a right to choose their own non-conflicting actions and must be responsible for their own acts, have apparently fallen for the state collectivist claptrap on Earth.  At least, until they jump onto a chronin time flow and travel to the "future" to see the results of that which is happening today.  It is not difficult to predict the future outcome of America and the world at large if the current moral philosophical trend of state collectivism does not change.  And one does not have to time travel to "predict" it.  In fact, if one can only "predict" the future through time travel, rather than extrapolating conceptually, then one must not be able to understand how current concepts lead to future events.  There is, after all, a big difference in extrapolating how action A leads to action B leads to action C, and having to jump to the future through physics to find out.  Which means one is still not able to figure out the "how" and "why" a particular "future" will happen.  Which means further that one is doomed to repeat one's inability to extrapolate conceptually and thus will fall into the same, in this case, state collectivist claptrap.  Not being able to predict that the state collectivist actions of the Third Reich, for example, must inexorably lead to The Holocaust is no different than the inability to predict that the state collectivist actions of the Obama Administration must lead to a similar outcome: a probable civil war in the US and WW III.  Wake up people.  History is about to repeat itself... and for the very same reasons.

--  Fri  May 02, 2014  Ah ha!  So now we have the smoking gun connecting the dots between the White House -- President Obama himself and his Oval Office thugs -- and the terrorist attack in Benghazi in which our Libyan ambassador and 3 Americans were killed on 9/11/2012.  That is, it has now been revealed that everybody in the White House, including President Obama, knew that the attack on our Benghazi consulate was NOT due to some ridiculous Youtube video on the Internet -- as Obama and his cohorts had all been claiming for months and months after it was already disproven -- but rather the Behghazi fiasco was a pre-planned terrorist attack against our embassy.  In an email by one of Obama's inner circle staff members, the author, Ben Rhodes, stated that talking points for Susan Rice's appearance on five major TV media talk shows should stress that the Benghazi attack was not due to the President's foreign political policies but rather due to what everybody already knew was not true:  the infamous Youtube video making fun of Mohammad.  Copied on the receipt of this smoking gun email was one of Sec of State Hillary Clinton's minions.  Therefore, Hilly knew about the cover-up, too.  Even the CIA, who said they provided the "talking points" from their people working at CIA headquarters in Langley, VA, instead of relying on CIA field reports at the scene of the crime, claim that they did not know about any Youtube video being the cause of the Benghazi attack.  Looks like a lot of people at the White House and State Department have been lying their butts off and need to get their fairytales in synch.  So now that the US House Committee investigating the Benghazi debacle had to obtain this email info from a third party journalist who had to obtain it from a court order invoking the Freedom of Information Act -- instead of it being voluntarily sent to the House two years ago when Chairman Issa asked the White House for all Benghazi information, where do we go from here?  One thing is for sure:  Obama's US Attorney General, Eric Holder, is not going to bring charges against members of the White House since he's already up to his eyeballs in a dozen other obstruction of justice issues involving the White House.  Nobody's going to investigate themselves.  The only avenue left open is for the US Congress to set up a bipartisan committee to investigate Obama and his Brown Shirt thugs running rampant all over the White House, implementing programs that socialist and communist dictators in other countries could only dream they had the power to implement.  And which RINOs in Congress are going to have the cajones to set up such a committee?  Republican House Leader John Boehner?  Any Democrats?  We shall see.  But now we at least know the truth:  it has finally been outted.  Obama and Hillary appear to have an unholy alliance about what the Benghazi terrorist attack was really all about:  namely, another one of Obama's "Fast and Furious" gun running deals (like with the Mexican drug cartels) that went haywire -- providing arms and ammo to the Mid-East terrorists -- and about which neither Obama nor Hillary can comment or tell the truth without incriminating themselves.  And these are the political a$$holes running our country.  Make that RUINing our country.  There is no difference between Germany's Third Reich in the 1930s and today's Obama government.  If nothing changes, we can expect the same results as in the Third Reich.

--  Thur Apr 24, 2014  Those Conservatives -- Glenn Beck, Krauthammer, and O'Reilly -- and others who are now attacking Rancher Cliven Bundy for his First Amendment right to say what he believes about various ethnic groups should take a giant step back and answer the following ad hominem debating ruse usually uttered by junior debaters in high school:  can a prostitute be a witness to a murder?  In other words, the fact that Bundy is not an intellectual academic with a Phd in the English language does not lessen the fact that the federal government has overstepped its bounds in attacking Bundy's ranch, killing his cattle, and attempting to usurp land in Nevada through nefarious court methodologies.  If we want to judge people by their statements, then President Obama and most of the politicians in Washington DC should be strung up by their gonads for uttering all of their pro-NAZI -- national socialist -- statements.  The difference between Bundy and, say, President Obama, is that Bundy is not trying to shove blacks into slavery, but Obama is unquestionably trying to shove all of America into economic slavery of the worst possible kind:  altruistic state collectivism under which millions of individuals have literally been slaughtered throughout the last 100 years.  The real issue in the Bundy case still stands:  the federal government vs. the individual.  And, by the way, the answer is yes, a prostitute can be a witness to a murder.  A witness or victim's lifestyle does not mean they are physically blind.  Same for Bundy.  Wake up Glenn Beck, Krauthammer, and O'Reilly.  Time for you to go back to Moral Philosophy & Basic Logic 101A.

--  Wed Apr 16, 2014  In a move lawmakers and farmers are calling “the biggest land grab in the history of the world,” the Environmental Protection Agency is requesting jurisdiction over all public and private streams in the United States that are “intermittent, seasonal and rain-dependent.”

The EPA and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in late March jointly released a proposed rule, Waters of the United States, in an effort to clarify which streams and wetlands are protected under the Clean Water Act.

A statement issued by the EPA says “the proposed rule will benefit businesses by increasing efficiency in determining coverage of the Clean Water Act.”

But some lawmakers strongly disagree.

According to congressional budget testimony last week, Waters of the United States would give the EPA authority over streams on private property even when the water beds have been dry, in some cases for hundreds of years.

Calling it “the biggest land grab in the history of the world,” House Appropriations Committee Chairman Rep. Harold Rogers, R-Ky., said the “economic impact of that would be profound.”

“A community needing to build on private land that had on it one of these so-called streams that you considered a waterway under the new rule would have to travel thousands, hundreds of miles to D.C., to get approval,” Rogers said.

The congressman argued it “would absolutely freeze economic activity in this country.”

Rogers said the proposal is “proof in and of itself of the mal-intent of this administration toward the private sector.”

After what we've seen the federal government's BLM try to do to Rancher Bundy last week in Clark County, Nevada, and the fact that Nevada's Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid used 200 secret service agents to rustle Bundy's cattle and take so-called BLM land for his own commercial profits (selling said land to a Chinese solar company), why should we trust that the EPA in collusion with other US Congressmen will not attempt to do the same thing if they control all the land in the nation by redefining water rights?  The last thing we need in America is an extension of any government agency's power over our individual and private property rights.  The EPA, BLM, IRS, Fed Reserve (a private banking consortium) and all the other thugster agencies need to be abolished, not extended.

--  Mon Apr 14, 2014  It's been one day after the BLM and 200 secret service agents called it quits rustling Rancher Bundy's cattle in Nevada and left the scene of their (the BLM's) crime.  How many major news media have covered the real reason why the BLM raided Bundy's Ranch?  A big fat zero.  As suspected, the major TV news media are pretending that they do not know that this entire debacle is all about Senator Harry Reid and his son's attempted land grab to sell the property to the Chinese government to develop a $5 billion solar energy project.  So much for ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, and FOX News.  Let's see how long it takes them to pick up the real facts of this story... if they ever do.

--  Sun Apr 13, 2014  After lying about reaching their goal of 7 million people signing up for ObamaCare by March 31, 2014, Health and Human Services Director Kathleen Sebelius resigned from her position.  What's this all about?  All part of Obama's script.  Since, in reality, Ms. Sebelius failed miserably on ALL FRONTS of the implementation of ObamaCare, schedule-wise, financially, and you-name-it, the Obama Administration first had to claim victory and then get her out of her HHS position immediately after so they could continue their phony victory lap.  But it's not over.  Everybody and their brother knows that ObamaCare did not reach its goals, it is still a bankrupt system that is depriving millions of citizens of their previous health care policies and doctors, and it will eventually be overturned either by future legislation or by the market itself.  National socialist health care systems are not financially feasible, they are a violation of individual rights, and must by definition turn into either bankrupt health rationing systems or simply go bankrupt.  We are now living in Orwell's 1984 with Washington politicians spewing out nothing but lies lies and more lies.

--  Sun Apr 13, 2014  News Flash!!  Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid tried to grab a Nevada cattle rancher's leased land so Reid can build a $5 billion Chinese solar project after selling said land to the Chinese.  Hey, what's a hoppenink here?  Over the past several days, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), and 200 secret service agents armed with high powered sniper rifles and automatic weapons descended upon cattle rancher Bundy and told him to get himself and his cattle off the BLM's land.  Why?  Ostensibly, to save the desert tortoises.  But the desert tortoises were moved from this land to a compound in Nevada years ago and are now actually being killed by the government because they ran out of budget money.  So much for this fake "endangered species."  Fake reason # 2:  Rancher Bundy's cattle may wander onto nearby roads and are, therefore, a hazard to the public, said the government.  Really?  One stray cow may have been struck by a car over the last 20 years.  Wow and whoop-tee-doo.  Open grazing land near roads and highways are common all over the West and warning signs are posted.  Fake reason # 3:  the land belongs to the BLM.  Buzz.  Wrong.  The grazing land in question belongs to Nevada, not the federal government.  Rancher Bundy's family has been farming watermelons and grazing cattle on this land since the 1800's.  Bundy refused to pay the BLM increased grazing fees back in 1994, claiming they had no right to implement those fees on state-leased property.  The feds did nothing for 20 years.  Now, all of a sudden, out of the clear blue sky, the BLM and 200 secret service agents descended on Bundy's grazing land and started swiping his cattle and tazing his sons and daughter and anybody else who got in the way.  Then, dum da dum...  the public finds out about this whacko attack against Rancher Bundy and a coupla thousand armed cowboys and militia from other states descended upon the scene to stand up for Bundy.  Cowboys out-rustled the federal BLM cattle rustlers and hauled Bundy's cattle back to his ranch.  Traffic was stopped and blockaded on Interstate-15.  This entire hullabaloo soon went viral on the Internet and independent news journalists started researching what's a hoppenink down at the Bundy Ranch.  As in, why is the BLM attacking some poor rancher and trying to take his land using phony excuses?  After about 5 nanoseconds of simple research, Internet journalists discovered that Senator Harry Reid and his attorney son have been working behind the scenes for several years to buy -- at dirt cheap prices -- Bundy's cattle grazing land and sell it for a tidy profit to a Chinese government energy company that the Reids have been setting up -- via federal legislation -- to build a $5 billion solar project.  To this end, the Reids have already talked the states of Nevada and Idaho into building a federal Transmission line from Idaho Falls, Idaho and through Nevada to -- ostensibly -- run the power from the Chinese solar project IF IT IS SUCCESSFUL.  So here's the upshot:  Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and his son have allegedly tried to pull off a land grab in Nevada in order to sell state land to a Chinese solar company to make a profit by selling the Chinese some grazing land.  Yesterday, after a standoff between armed BLM secret service thugs and armed cowboys from other states, the feds called it quits and pulled out.  The real reason, however, is that Sen. Harry Reid got caught with his fraudulent pants down, found out the news media was all over this scam, and no doubt President Obama weighed in and told him to cool it, dude.  Now it remains to be seen whether any of the major news networks will continue their investigation and bring it to the attention of the judicial system.  Will anything happen to Senator Reid of Nevada?  Time will tell but I wouldn't bet on it.

--  Tue Apr 01, 2014  Hallelujah!  Just as the last day to sign up for ObamaCare in 2014 occurred yesterday at 11:59 pm midnight, President Obama and his National Socialist Administration announced that they have reached their goal of signing up 7.1 million people in their socialist health care system!  What a coincidence. They amazingly reached their goal of 7 million sign-ups for ObamaCare.  Who'd 'a ever thunk it, especially after failing to reach their milestones every single month since Oct 2013?  Wow.  What a last minute surge.  But... there remain a zillion questions concerning the numbers such as what constitutes "people who have signed up" or "people who have actually paid for it" or "people who are new enrollees" or... ?  In short, we believe the government simply decided to redefine the stats and lied about how many people have actually signed up for ObamaCare.  All of these real or faked numbers are immaterial anyway since the real issue is individual rights vs. government mandates, individual rights vs. The Omnipotent State.  It doesn't matter how many millions did or did not sign up for ObamaCare.  Your personal health care is a private free market issue between you and your doctor.  It is no different than your right to choose what car to buy or not to buy a car at all.  Health care is just another commodity in the market over which you, as an individual, should have total control vis a vis an exchange with your choice of health care professionals.  Health care is not an individual right; education is not an individual right; having the government provide you with a car or a computer or a home or any other commodity is not an individual right.  Rights are not commodities.  Rights are freedoms that you are born with.  Rights are universal and are not obtained from a government or a piece of paper.  Those individuals, such as Republicans or Conservatives or Tea Partiers, etc., who are busy arguing against ObamaCare based upon real or imagined statistical data instead of as a violation of individual rights will lose this debate because their Democratic state collectivist opponents will simply use statistics to lie and then claim victory.  Which is exactly what just happened yesterday.  Today, or soon, President Obama will probably show up on national TV and lie to the public that his administration has reached their numerical goal of signing up 7 million people for his socialist health care system and, thus, claim that his program is right on schedule to save everybody from polio, cancer, and stubbing their collective big toe on the way to their local pub.

--  Fri Mar 28, 2014  In the No-Honor-Among-Thieves Dept, over ten bankers/traders coincidentally died within the last several months.  My, my, how mysterious.  According to Tyler Durden at Zero Hedge News, 5 guys allegedly committed suicide, 2 guys fell from JP Morgan rooftops (one in London, one in Hong Kong...how clumsy of them), one guy jumped in front of a train, and one guy shot his own ass deader 'n a door nail with a nail gun.  The rest of the deaths are categorized as, "We don't know, investigation pending."  Meanwhile, central banking bankers in JP Morgan, B of A, Goldman Sachs, Wells Fargo and others have been ordered to pay fines of over $100 Billion while still making profits of over $76 Billion last year.  Yippee and yahoo, printing up unlimited supplies of dollars, yen, pounds, and plastic cards still pays well.  And Americans are now over $17 trillion in debt to, hmm, let's see now, oh yeah, their own silly little selves for allowing Congress to allow the central bankers to hyper-inflate our currency and call it a National Debt.  Looks like the bankers are either knocking each other off in a Gangsta Banksta War or those working in the financial districts happen to be really really clumsy walking around on the roofs of buildings, waiting for trains, handling nail guns, and playing with their kids' jump ropes.  So far, the following bankster/traders have kicked the bucket.  Our condolences:

1 - William Broeksmit, 58-year-old former senior executive at Deutsche Bank AG, was found dead in his home after an apparent suicide in South Kensington in central London, on January 26th.

2 - Karl Slym, 51 year old Tata Motors managing director Karl Slym, was found dead on the fourth floor of the Shangri-La hotel in Bangkok on January 27th.

3 - Gabriel Magee, a 39-year-old JP Morgan employee, died after falling from the roof of the JP Morgan European headquarters in London on January 27th.

4 - Mike Dueker, 50-year-old chief economist of a US investment bank was found dead close to the Tacoma Narrows Bridge in Washington State.

5 - Richard Talley, the 57 year old founder of American Title Services in Centennial, Colorado, was found dead earlier this month after apparently shooting himself with a nail gun.

6 - Tim Dickenson, a U.K.-based communications director at Swiss Re AG, also died last month, however the circumstances surrounding his death are still unknown.

7 - Ryan Henry Crane, a 37 year old executive at JP Morgan died in an alleged suicide just a few weeks ago. No details have been released about his death aside from this small obituary announcement at the Stamford Daily Voice.

8 - Li Junjie, 33-year-old banker in Hong Kong jumped from the JP Morgan HQ in Hong Kong this week.

9 - James Stuart Jr, Former National Bank of Commerce CEO, found dead in Scottsdale, Ariz., the morning of Feb. 19. A family spokesman did not say what caused the death

10 - Edmund (Eddie) Reilly, 47, a trader at Midtown’s Vertical Group, committed suicide by jumping in front of LIRR train

--  Fri Mar 28, 2014  Is the speed of light changing from one constant to another as The Big Bang continues expanding our DERN universe?  What is the smallest unit of time and how is it measured?  If one can control the rate at which the smallest particle used to define the smallest unit of time moves between point A and point B, can one then move back in time and also up into the future?  But if one can visit the future, is this just a probable future, with many other possibilities, or is the future in our universe already pre-determined?  If so, what about free will?  We will be addressing these and other questions in the near future -- no pun intended -- in these pages, as well as how they may tie in with ET humans and the information they may be providing to us regarding our intellectual and spiritual development.  And... how all this relates to our views of social-political-economic issues, namely ideas of freedom and free markets.  Just how universal are these ideas about individual freedom and who else out there in the universe believes in them, too?  And who doesn't?  Inquiring minds want to know...

--  Fri Mar 14, 2014  Quote from the former Premier of the Czech Republic, Vaclav Klaus:  "The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency.  It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president.  The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America.  Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince.  The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool.  It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president." 

--  Thur Mar 06, 2014  Dontcha just love it when thugs like Vladimir Putin of Russia and Barack Obama of America manipulate their lying, thieving selves to the top of their respective governments and then claim to be "public servants" -- yeah, SERVANTS -- who are helping all the poor underdogs in the world by providing them with stolen goods taken from everybody else in the economy?  And if they don't steal everybody's goods directly, they take them indirectly by, for example, modifying their respective nation's medium of economic exchange to be easily duplicated, inflated, printed, or just plain increased on a fake ledger within the bowels of their national bank's computers.  Clearly, the way to take over a nation is to take over the management of its money supply.  Welcome to the clever Federal Reserve system, a private group of bankers who have convinced all the idiots and politicians of the world that they can lead the economy with a continual deficit and thus create wealth.  That's like saying that Farmer Jones can eat up all his seed corn, issue IOUs for non-existent seed corn, save everybody from starvation, and make everybody filthy rich.  There is no way but the people buy off on it, especially Democrats who, by definition, are Democrats precisely because they know nothing about money and economics.  What is money and who gives a holy $hit if it's inflated to Hell and back, ask Democrats?  Well, answering the latter first, you should care because, first, money is a form of communication and is unknowingly protected by freedom of speech in the First Amendment.  Think about it.  Money is a temporary medium of economic exchange, written in a promissory contract, in which the explicit contract of communication between two parties is that one party will provide the goods while the other party will accept a PROMISE (communication) to receive his goods at a later date.  If the first party lies by changing the PROMISSORY NOTE in any manner whatsoever, then the first party is committing fraud.  So, if the first party counterfeits the PROMISSORY NOTE, inflates the money supply in order to force the price of goods higher than before, then the first party has, in fact, defrauded -- lied to -- the second party.  But that is the real function of each nation's central bank:  i.e. to gain advantage over others in a form of communication called "paper money" and plastic credit, which is YOUR national debt.  The second function of each nation's central bank is to be able to use this power of the manipulated purse to control politicians.  By offering politicians "free" money, central banks end up being the true politicians who control the actions of all nations.  Controlling the free speech of money, the PROMISSORY NOTES between two or more parties, is how bankers have taken over all economic policy, running civil and international wars, and completely managing every aspect of every individual's actions, directly and indirectly.  So, you see that when thugs like Vladimir Putin of Russia and Barack Obama -- or George Bush or FDR or Lyndon Johnson or Woodrow Wilson -- of the United States dash into invading other nations like Putin just invaded the sovereign nation of the Ukraine, or President Barack Obama suspends everybody's personal and private property rights by forcing his national socialist health care system down all Americans throats, they are simply carrying out their duties and promises to their own central bankers who are actually the Wizards of Oz pulling off the Smoke and Mirrors behind everything that happens in the world.  Like the Rolling Stones' front man Mick Jagger, the central bankers of the world need front men, too -- Presidents and legislators in most major nations -- to dance around and sing about how they're simply altruistic "public servants" saving all the people from their stupid little selves.  (No disrespect to Mick Jagger and the Rolling Stones, who are just a good rock bank and are not crooks.)  Voting booths are magic boxes in which people who can't be trusted, say Democrats, to make decisions in a free market all of a sudden become geniuses and know what action to take by stepping into a voting booth.  The people of Russia don't give a rat's ass about oil pipelines and shooting their neighbors, but Russia's leader Vladimir Putin sure as Hell cares since it keeps him in the front man position with the real powers that be:  the central bankers pulling his strings.  Same for President Barack Obama.  Americans could give a big whoop-tee-doo about ObamaCare -- until it blows them out of their doctors' offices or they lose their health care -- but Obama cares because he wants to stay in power, playing a lot of golf, and giving ridiculous speeches to college kids, all the while knowing that he owes his front man position to the Federal Reserve central bankers.  The entire economy, your home mortgages, your car financing, your kids' college loans, your savings and interest rates, and ad infinitum concerning money and freedom of speech are now all controlled AND MANIPULATED by the central bankers.  Vladimir Putin and Barack Obama are simply clowns on a string, dancing to the tune of their banking masters and convincing everybody to choose up phony sides in phony wars and phony self-made economic catastrophes so they can continue to strip you of your freedoms and get rich by looting your products in order to, you know, "save you" from all the evils of the world.  Of course the politicians get a broker's fee for this:  staying in power, getting rich, and living the life of Riley.  Wow.  What a racket.  And not one person in a hundred million understands what is really going on with a nation's finances and money.  Especially left Liberals, by definition.  Conservatives know half of it.  Libertarians know almost all of it, also by definition.  Meanwhile, dance, Barack, dance; do the electric slide...and the Monetary Hustle... what a humanitarian you are, and with such good intentions...

-- Wed Mar 05, 2014  Ex IRS official Lois Lerner wrote in an email, "Tea Party cases are very dangerous," in regard to granting them tax exemptions such as a 501 (c) (4) for their political group.  However, at a special Congressional committee today in which Chairman Issa asked Ms. Lerner what she meant by her email statement, Ms. Lerner exercised her Fifth Amendment rights and refused to answer on the grounds that it may incriminate her.  She stood on the Fifth on several questions before Chairman Issa finally called the meeting to a close.  Ms. Lerner, the day before, wanted immunity in order to testify but she was not granted immunity because nobody knows what her testimony would be in order to grant her immunity.  The bigger question is:  if she did nothing illegal, for what reason would she request immunity?  Immunity is usually for those who are admitting guilt but are making a deal to squeal on others in exchange for that immunity.  Just what does Ms. Lerner want immunity for?  Further, how can her answering questions about her emails be incriminating unless she did something illegal?  Looks like somebody in the Obama Administration got to Ms. Lerner in the last two days and either threatened the crap out of her or bought her off with some Xmas presents... or both.  At any rate, something stinks to high Heaven in Washington DC, once again, vis a vis the IRS selectively targeting Conservative political groups in their granting of IRS tax exemptions.  Get this:  no Democratic political groups were denied IRS tax exemptions during the Obama Administration.  Somebody lower in the IRS food chain than Ms. Lerner needs to come forth and blow the whistle on this entire stinking matter.  We suspect it leads directly to the White House and their attempts to thwart all Conservative political groups from running against Obama's left Liberal socialists who now control the government.  And people wonder why Eric Snowden who blew the whistle on the NSA gathering everybody's emails and other communications had to flee the country and then blow the whistle.  Otherwise he would probably have ended up in jail or dead. Or both.  Welcome to the beginnings of Stalinist Russia and Nazi Germany.  That's how they did it; and now that's how the Progressives in the US are doing it:  taking over the entire nation with force and fraud.

--  Sun Mar 02,  2014 about 6 pm MST  Wow, the Oscars are off to a great start tonight as the Academy pulled off a stupid skit in which some dork actor talking to one of the Hollywood greeters climbed through a flat screen TV and scolded two grossly overweight viewers sitting at home eating junk food.  The two pretend viewers, wearing underwear and sloppy clothes, had apparently sent Tweet messages about the dress style of some of the actors and actresses marching down the red carpet into the Oscars.  So the dork actor who climbed through the TV screen dissed the crap out of the two viewers.  The skit was supposed to be hilarious but it actually dissed all Americans who are NOT glamorous movie stars and just ordinary citizens sitting at home watching the Oscars, portraying the viewers as a bunch of slob ignoramuses.  But THIS IS exactly what many Hollywood actors and actresses really think of ordinary American citizens.  Hollywood should be careful.  It's not nice to bite the hands of those who feed you.  Speaking of biting everybody in America, who else does this remind you of?  That's right, the politicians in Washington DC, especially the Obama Administration, as President and First Lady of America arrogantly flaunt what they think is their entitlement of wealth and royalty every other whipstitch minute.  No wonder most of Hollywood gets along great with Obama and the crooked left Liberals in Washington DC:  they're all cut from the same moral philosophical and intellectual cloth, and guess what... it ain't silk or diamonds.  Stay tuned.  Let's see if Hollywood screws up the Oscars any more tonight...  OK, it's past 9:30 pm MST and the Oscars are still dragging on... mostly boring as Hell... with Ellen Degeneres wasting lots of not-so-funny time buying 3 boxes of pizza for various movie stars and taking a selfie cell phone pic of same.  Next year, set your DVR, record the Oscars, and then zip through 5 hours of Hollywood crap and commercials to find out who wins Best Actor and Actress.  Actually, I voted for President Obama for Best Actor and First Fat Lady Michelle for Best Actress.  Nancy Pelosi for Best Supporting Actress, Harry Reid for Best Supporting Actor.  ObamaCare for Best Worst Movie of The Year, receiving 6 million Pinnochios at its premiere launch.

--  Sat Mar 01, 2014  Guess how many citizens in the great state of Oregon have signed up for ObamaCare?  Zero.  Why?  The geniuses in left Liberal Oregon volunteered to implement ObamaCare as its own ObamaCare project in a new state health care exchange.  So Oregon has spent millions and millions of dollars on computer software for their state ObamaCare system that, oops, doesn't work.  If you live in Oregon, which of Obama's Executive Orders are you, or your business, adhering to in order to fulfill the mandates of the Affordable Care Act, i.e. ObamaCare?  Do you follow the original mandates in the ACA law passed by Congress or the 28 Executive Order changes unilaterally made by President Obama (illegally) without the vote of Congress.  Executive Orders are meant to clarify the verbiage of existing law, not to re-write the mandates of existing law.  And Idaho is not far behind Oregon.  Idaho's voluntary state health care exchange is a total bust, too, with hundreds of thousands of Idahoans losing their current health care policies, their doctors, and being encouraged to sign up for state Medicaid.  Unfortunately, there is not enough money in all the pockets of all the citizens of Idaho to pay for the extrapolated increase in taxes to cover this new Medicaid cost.  Thank you, Gov Butch Otter, for shoving ObamaCare down the throats of Idaho's citizens.  Hopefully, you will not be serving a 3rd term for your RINO cohorts in Idaho after the Elections of 2014.

--  Tue Feb 18, 2014  As we have stated numerous times, President Barack Obama is now moving into the 2nd level of the standard state collectivist personality trait:  the blame game.  The 1st level was proposing state collectivist economic programs such as national socialist health care, government automobiles, or federal lollipops for everybody.  The 2nd level consists of the dictator, Obama in this case, blaming everybody except oneself when his/her socialism fails.  So what is the Obama administration doing now?  They're using the IRS to force businesses to sign a document stating whether businesses laid off people because of budget cuts due to ObamaCare.  Think about that for a moment.  By what right does the Internal Revenue Service force businesses to state why said business may have cut employee expenses or any other reason, whether for higher health care costs, higher production costs, or any other expense?  And then make it criminal if a business says "Oh yeah, I chopped 10 employees because I couldn't pay their health care costs."  We just can't wait for level 3 of Obama's dictatorial personality trait:  "OK, all you guys who are guilty of not trying hard enough to implement ObamaCare line up for the train to your re-education center in Arizona where we will show you how to sacrifice yourself for the good of the majority."  Oh, and this is immediately after President Obama stated in his interview with Bill O'Reilly of FOX TV, "Oh no, Bill, the IRS was not involved in targeting Conservative political groups to prevent them from obtaining 501 (c) (4) exemptions, not even a SMIDGEON."  Uh huh.  And not even one Democratic political group was turned down or harassed by the IRS.  Not one.

--  Mon Feb 17, 2014  In the Water Drought Hypocrisy Dept, Obama golfs at water-guzzling desert golf courses while preaching about the California drought.  According to Patriot Update, "After preaching shared sacrifice [FM Duck Note: key word for state collectivists:  shared sacrifice] to assuage the California water shortage, Obama has played some of the country’s thirstiest golf courses.  President Barack Obama traveled to California Friday to highlight the state’s drought emergency at two events near Fresno, calling for shared sacrifice to help manage the state’s worst water-shortage in decades. He then spent the rest of the weekend enjoying the hospitality of some of the state’s top water hogs: desert golf courses.  Vacationing with DVDs of his favorite television shows and multiple golf outings with his buddies, the duffer-in-chief played at two of the most exclusive courses in the Palm Springs area. On Saturday, Obama played at the Sunnylands estate, built by the late billionaire Walter Annenberg, which features a nine-hole course that is played like 18 holes. The following day he golfed at billionaire Oracle founder Larry Ellison’s 19-hole Porcupine Creek. On Presidents’ Day, Obama hit the links at Sunnylands once again.  The 124 golf courses in the Coachella Valley consume roughly 17 percent of all water there, and one quarter of the water pumped out of the region’s at-risk groundwater aquifer, according to the Coachella Valley Water District. Statewide, roughly one percent of water goes to keep golf courses green. Each of the 124 Coachella Valley courses, on average, uses nearly 1 million gallons a day due to the hot and dry climate, 3-4 times more water per day than the average American golf course."  Water shortage, right?  Not over-population?

--  Sun Feb 16, 2014  President Barack Obama and his Progressive Boot Lickers are now calling for the IRS to slap down all the Tea Party, Republican, Libertarian, and Conservative political groups who are running ads against ObamaCare for the 2014 Elections.  Democrats who voted YES for ObamaCare are now running for the exits and don't know what to do to convince voters that ObamaCare is not a failure as some 6.5 million Americans have now lost their health insurance and doctors.  Calling for the IRS to save their little state collectivist butts only one week after Obama was interviewed before the Super Bowl Game, Obama stated that not only was the IRS not involved in harassing Conservative political groups over the last two years but that there was not even a "smidgeon" of involvement by the IRS.  Ya-yesssss, not even a "smidgeon."  Uh-huh.  One week later on national TV, Senator Schumer called for the IRS to target Conservatives to stop them from running campaign ads against the failure of ObamaCare.  Schumer wins the Cheshire Cat Big Fake Grin Award for 2014, surpassing Vice President Joe Biden and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi in 2013.  "Huyuck, I guess we'll just have to read the 3,000 pages of ObamaCare to find out what's in it, huyuck, giggle, snort," said Pelosi, as she spread more lipstick on her big fat Pinocchio nose.

--  Sat Feb 01, 2014  Left Liberal newsrag, The Idaho Statesman, reported today that "inappropriate" funds transfers might cost Idaho taxpayers $27 Million.  A 2013 internal audit report, 30 pages, reveals that State Treasurer Ron Crane -- with no other oversight -- moved funds whose face value was $31 Million, but whose market value was $19 Million, from one government fund into another in order to increase the target fund's ratings.  Two problems here:  (1) although it is entirely legal, the state of Idaho should not be "investing" taxpayer money into investments whose principle (as well as interest) value can go up or down, and (2) one individual should not have the power to unilaterally decide how to invest taxpayer funds into any type of investment.  Let's look at (1).  Even though monetary inflation by the Fed central bank is devaluing our money and everybody wishes they could preserve the face value of their money, it is sheer folly to think than in today's highly manipulated markets (from stocks to bonds to commodities, think JP Morgan controlling naked shorts, the corrupt CFTC doing nothing about it, etc.) that Idaho's Lone Ranger State Treasurer, Ron Crane, could devine which Wall Street structured vehicle (e.g. chopped up fake mortgages) to take a chance on with Idaho taxpayer money.  But he did.  And That's how local, county, state, and federal governments go broke.  Just like the Federal Reserve planned, or at least doesn't give a crap because they (the Fed Reserve) can just create more fiat currency out of thin air.  Idaho's taxpayer money should be placed in savings types of accounts whose principles are not at risk.  Will they earn big time interest?  No.  Will they lose through monetary inflation?  Yes.  But, why take the chance of losing BOTH principle AND interest?  The problem is the Federal Reserve and you cannot fight the Federal Reserve except through Congress.  Looking at (2), no one individual should be able to move Idaho taxpayer money all over the place.  The auditors also noted this and have recommendations to correct this oversight, although Mr. Crane, from his rebuttal comments in the audit, appears to think what he did was OK because, he says, in hindsight nobody knew which direction the market was going.  But, as the auditors said, it did not take hindsight to know that one cannot value funds at face value.  Rather they must be valued at market value.  It's called mark-to-market.  Also, the State Treasurer should not be moving funds from one government investment account to another in order to boost the second account's ratings.  One moves funds to protect value to the taxpayer, not for government ratings purposes.  Two more important points in the 2013 audit:  Mr. Crane is in charge of managing $2.9 Billion in taxpayer funds.  What a red flag this is, especially under current circumstances.  2nd point:  Idaho's hospitals were OVER-TAXED some $14.7 Million in 2013 when a 2012 piece of taxing legislation expired in a sunset clause in 2012.  Other juicy info in Idaho's 2013 audit reads like the federal government's standard financial absurdities, think the current economic health care and unemployment mess caused by ObamaCare.  Me?  Personally, I think the high point of the 2013 audit is this:  the State Treasurer is in charge of $2.9 Billion of Idaho's taxpayer money?  Uh-oh.  Red Flag.  Beep beep, honk honk.

 

--  Thur Jan 30, 2014  President Obama lied through his pearly white teeth in his State of the Union speech.

 

Lie # 1:  The Obama administration has created over 8 million new jobs over the last 4 years...  yea, scream, screech, applause from the Democratic socialists in the audience... but, oops, not true.  Since the start of Obama's dictatorship, only 3.2 million jobs have been created, many of them PART TIME GOVERNMENT JOBS, and the US still has 1.2 million fewer jobs than in 2007.

 

Lie # 2:  Obama said, "Today, women make up about one-half of America's work force, but they only make 77-cents for every dollar that a man earns.  That is wrong, and in 2014, it is an embarrassment."  ...yea, scream, screech, applause from the Democratic socialists in the audience...  Really?  77-cents?  Buzz, wrong, you lied, not true, Mr. President.  Obama is using figures from the Census Bureau and comparing apples with oranges regarding types of jobs.  In some jobs, paid hourly, women make 14-cents to 19-cents less than men while in other jobs, salaried management, women earn just as much or millions more than men.  Salary is not the only comparison for total compensation; women receive maternity leave that men do not.  Many women want to raise children; they do not want a CEO position, and on and on.  Obama is pretending that women are being frozen out of good jobs in the work place and that is simply not true.

 

Lie # 3:  Obama's shameless inflation of the ObamaCare enrollment numbers.  He said, "More than nine million Americans have signed up for private health insurance or Medicaid coverage," implying that these numbers are the result of his Affordable Health Care program.  ...yea, scream, screech, applause from the Democratic socialists in the audience...  6.3 million of the Medicaid numbers are HIGHLY questionable, earning a rating of 3 lying Pinocchios from industry sources.  And 3 million of the private insurance members from ObamaCare statistics are absolutely false.  ObamaCare stats counts the number of people who logged onto the ACA Healthcare.gov system, NOT the number of people who successfully obtained health care and paid their first premium.  How do we know this?  Because the software for the insurance payment has not been written yet.  In reality, if you haven't finished enrolling or even made a payment, you are not insured.  The fact is, over 6 million people have LOST their current health insurance due to ObamaCare and the new rules his program has imposed upon America.  ObamaCare has actually gone backwards, accomplishing exactly the opposite of its socialist goals?  Wow, where have we seen that before?  Not only that, but software consultant after software consultant has testified to Congress that the ObamaCare computer system is not safe, is hackable by identity thieves, and has, in fact, already been hacked.  Yet, President Obama was pretending in his State of the Union speech that ObamaCare is a raging success while the facts show that it is a resounding failure.  Plus, it cost the American taxpayer over $680 million, almost $600 million more than the original estimate, and it ain't over yet, folks.  The Obama administration just issued another $90 million software contract to a new group to try to save the current failure.

 

Meanwhile, Human & Health Services Director Kathleen Sebelius sat there during Obama's SOTU speech and received a standing ovation from the Democratic socialists for the lies being told about her system.  She should be fired immediately and President Obama should be impeached for lying to the American people and illegally changing the ACA mandates (i.e. legislation passed by Congress) with Executive Orders that violate his limited statutory authority granted in the US Constitution.

 

So much for all the imperial pomp and circumstance at President Obama's latest State of the Union pack of lies.

 

--  Wed Jan 29, 2014  Ah yes, the President's State of The Union address last night.  What did he tell us?  Both overtly and between the lines?  Overtly President Obama aggressively put forth his ideology of Marxist socialism.  As predicted, he has now passed the point of insinuating the implementation of his socialist principles by using mamby-pamby words such as "hope and change" and "fundamentally change America."  Now that his socialist programs have failed, the economy is approaching ruins, people have lost their jobs, lost their health insurance, and the wars in the Middle East are still raging, President Obama -- like all previous socialist dictators before him in every nation -- is now openly displaying his anger.  He now says he is not going to work with the US Congress to do anything.  He is going to sign off on dictatorial Executive Orders to bypass the checks and balances of the US Constitution.  He is the President of "No Authority."  It is not the number of EOs that he is issuing that's the major problem; it is the substantive depth of the changes that the EOs are intended to bring about.  Total dictatorial authority.  There is no statutory authority for President Obama to use an EO to change the legislative mandates of, for example, ObamaCare.  EOs are meant to clarify and expedite existing legislation, not re-write the legislative mandates.  Mr. Obama is now going through the same process that all wanna-be state collectivists go through when they see that the people are rejecting their government programs:  bullying, threatening, and openly waging an all-out war against the very people he is screwing over, ironically, in the name of the very people he is screwing over.  In this 2nd Marxist stage of How Dictators Take Over Nations, Obama is following in the footsteps of Stalin, Lenin, Adolph Hitler, Mussolini, Mao-Tse-Tung, Fidel Castro, Idi Amin, and Genghis Kahn.  He knows what's right.  He knows what should be done.  He knows that if only he could play Total Dictator, dump Congress and dump the Supreme Court, he could save everybody from all the evils in the world.  But the people and Congress will not cooperate.  They refuse to buy health insurance through ObamaCare.  Nor should they because this $680 million government program doesn't work, puts personal information at risk to hackers, and, most importantly, restricts all individuals' freedoms to choose their own doctors and health insurance policies.  Millions have lost their health insurance due to ObamaCare.  But Obama lies about ObamaCare's failure.  The people, he claims, don't know what's good for them.  Only he knows.  And he knows so much about economics, he thinks, that he can't understand why the dirty rotten people and his political opponents don't just divvy up all the money in the world, create work communes, and distribute the wealth equally among everybody.  Well, almost everybody.  Not himself or the other Rulers in his dictatorship.  They get more cookies than everybody else because they're in charge.  Obama and his cronies are so brilliant and they have to manage all the trillions and trillions of market exchanges, buys and sells at the government-approved "correct" prices in the not-so-free market so that everything works like the well-oiled-machine that they know Marxist socialism will create.  Uh huh.  Right.  Screw the consumers.  What do they know?  Screw the free market; it's not fair, said Karl Marx.  Obama still believes in the outdated "Labor Theory of Value."  Even socialist economists -- an oxymoron -- don't believe in the "Labor Theory of Value" any longer, and yet every economic sophism Obama puts forth rests in part on this false axiom.  In the 3rd stage of How to Implement Socialism, when the communes and redistribution of all the money in America doesn't work, somebody must be at fault and they will have to pay.  With their lives.  First, by loss of freedoms.  Then by incarceration and finally by extermination.  The Marxist path is well-known.  Those who still don't understand the ideology that President Obama is following will soon discover that they have made a grave mistake.  But, unless Obama and his ideas are curbed, it will be too late.  The USSR, the People's Republic of China, Socialist Cuba, and now Obama's "Fundamentally Changing of America" with "I got a pen and a phone" to bypass Congress and issue a thousand illegal EOs.  Obama's SOTU speech last night is an open war against the individual, against, the rule of law, against the US Constitution, and against the concepts embedded in the inherent rights of man.  Last night, President Obama openly declared war against America, against YOU, and he has told you his game plan.  Wake up, people!

 

--  Sun Jan 26, 2014  Ding dong!  Notice to Idaho voters.  This year, in 2014, the GOP is holding a closed Primary Election.  Last year the GOP held a closed caucus style of voting for its Primary Elections.  In previous years in Idaho, Primary Elections were open, meaning that you did not have to register for a particular party before voting.  One could just show up and vote for anybody in any party.  The GOP bitched and moaned and groaned that the minority party, the Democrats, were screwing over the GOP by purposely voting for the worst GOP candidates in the Primaries and then voting for their favorite Democrat in the General Election.  So, starting last year, the GOP decided to (1) hold a closed Primary in which you had to register as a GOP voter to vote for a Republican candidate in the Primary, and (2) hold the Primary as a town hall style caucus down at BSU's Taco Bell Arena.  This year, in 2014, the closed GOP Primary has been retained but the caucus part has been dumped.  Good riddance; it was a failure for many reasons.  So, beep-beep, pay attention, if you plan to vote for a Republican in the Primary, you must register as a GOP voter before March 14, 2014.  The Democrats can do whatever they want.  They can get tricky dicky, register as Republicans for the GOP Primary and vote for the least desirable GOP candidate, and then vote for Hillary "The Lying Bitch" Clinton in the General Election.  But here's the deal:  Idaho has some 700,000 - 800,000 registered voters, about 250,000 GOP and 400,000 Independents, with the rest being Libertarians, Tea Party, Constitutionalists, and assorted Commie-Fascist-Socialist-Progressive-state collectivist Liberals.  As you can see, Liberals in Idaho are in the minority.  So what's the Big Point?  Idaho often votes and implements left Liberal laws and agendas because the majority GOP is not really Conservative.  No, Martha.  The majority GOP in Idaho is ruled by a bunch of RINOs, which means Republican In Name Only.  Witness the fact that Idaho is the only Republican state that implemented ObamaCare's state health care exchange -- on the premise that if Idaho didn't implement it themselves, Adolph Hitler in the federal government would do it for them later.  Therefore, reasoned Gov Butch Otter -- who is a Liberal on Monday, Republican on Tuesday, Socialist on Wednesday, Fascist on Thursday, Democrat on Friday, Cowboy on Saturday, and Catholic on Sunday -- Idaho had to play left Liberal Progressive and sell itself to the Devils in Washington DC in order to save itself.  This was before the release of ObamaCare's Healthcare.gov crashed and burned on Oct 1, 2013, and has been crashing and burning ever since.  Gov Otter and his RINOs -- as predicted -- were absolutely WRONG and shoved Idaho in the wrong direction.  Caving in to Adolph Hitler and His NAZI health care plan -- i.e. appeasing the Dictator -- is a funny way to try to defeat him.  Witness PM Chamberlain in Britain who stupidly thought he could appease Germany's Adolph Hitler, weeks before good ol' Adolph broke their agreement and invaded Poland.  That's when Churchill had to take over.  Gov Otter is Chamberlain and, now, more Idahoans have lost their health insurance than have signed up for new health care policies.  And the trend will worsen as, in 2014, small businesses will dump most of their employees' health care coverage, pay a cheaper fine, and the number of Idahoans falling into already bankrupt Medicaid will skyrocket.  A cost that Idaho cannot afford.  How does all this fit into registering to vote GOP in the Primary?  Simple.  We need a Winston Churchill.  Those of you who are Independents and Tea Partiers -- 400,000 of you -- need to register as Republicans by March 14, 2014, so you can vote for Senate Republican Majority Leader Russ Fulcher for Governor in the GOP closed Primary.  Otherwise, current Gov Butch Otter and his RINOs running the Republican Party will easily win the GOP Primary and Idaho will get more and more state collectivist programs from Dictator Barack Obama in Washington DC.  The Independents in Idaho are actually Conservatives who, in the past, did not want to register in a particular party.  They are not Liberals.  But now, if they want to move Idaho toward individual rights and a free market, they must register as GOP voters in order to dump the RINOs.  If you like the ideas put forth by Rep Ron Paul, Sen Rand Paul, Legislator Ted Cruz, former Gov Sarah Palin, etc. you can -- by registering as Republicans -- elect a new Govenor, Russ Fulcher, who can then abolish Idaho's state health care exchange.  You can dump ObamaCare.  Plus, you can lower taxes for businesses and individuals, and, in general, cut Idaho's growing welfare state.  It is up to the Independents in Idaho to dump the RINOs and move Idaho back toward the Constitution and Bill of Rights.  Your state, your choice.  If you stay home and do not register by Mar 14, 2014, you lose and have nobody to blame but yourself.

 

--  Sun Jan 19, 2014  "We're not just going to be waiting for legislation in order to make sure that we're providing Americans the kind of help they need.  I've got a pen and I've got a phone." -- President Barack Obama during last week's Cabinet meeting.  Analysis of President Obama's statements:  (1) Who is the first "we" -- the collectivist entity, the group, the mob -- that Obama is referring to in "we're not just going to be waiting for legislation...?"  Is this collectivist "we" his own private army, a cadre of progressive czars, or who? (2) Who is the second "we" -- the collectivist entity, the group, the mob -- that Obama is referring to in "we're providing Americans the kind of help they need?"  If it's not legislation, then it's not Congress, so who is this mystery group that thinks it's OK to make an end run around Congress to "provide" Americans with whatever Obama and his collective think Americans might need?  Are the first and second collectivist "we's" in Obama's statement one and the same?  (3) Who gets to define "the kind of help that Americans need?"  In other words, what does the word "need" mean and who gets to establish its definition?  Is it a need or a desire?  Is it an economic commodity or an inherent Natural Right?  A Natural Right is not an economic commodity.  Needs are relative.  Does Person A's needs supersede Person B's needs?  Does this "needs" test -- and who gets to determine it -- mean that Person B's individual rights are subordinate to Person A's individual rights?  Summary:  If you still don't believe that President Obama is a national socialist or some type of state collectivist trying to act as a dictatorial redistributionist broker, then you should pay closer attention to the words that he uses.  He means what he says.  If President Obama had placed his sentences in the first person singular instead of camouflaging them with a third person plural and instead had said, "I'm not just going to be waiting for legislation in order to make sure that I'm providing Americans the kind of the help [that I think] they need," then his dictatorial ideology would stand out clearly for everybody to see.  But Obama and his handlers are more clever than that.  They want you to believe that he is an altruistic philanthropist who only has other people's "needs" in mind.  Further, he believes that other people's "needs" trump your individual "needs" or, more importantly, your inherent Natural Rights.  It's OK, he thinks, to play the fake altruism card in the name of other people -- "needy" people -- rather than his first person singular card.  That would smack of individualism, greediness, selfish, and not a good excuse to take over the entire US economy.  No, one must use altruism as the excuse for taking over a nation and the collective as the target recipient to become a true dictator.  And that is exactly what President Obama stated as he closed out his dictatorial statement with, "I've got a pen and I've got a phone."  Meaning, he can trash the three branches of government, all checks and balances that were put in the US Constitution EXACTLY for the reasons that he wants to dump them, because HIS socialist means justify HIS socialist ends.  That is what Obama was actually saying to the American public and to the world at large.  His true intentions are questionable:  does he really want to save everybody or does he just want more power?  It really doesn't matter since it's his methodology that is killing off the individual, killing private property rights, killing individual responsibility, and killing the ability of true free market capitalism to bring down economic costs and thus increase the quality of life for all individuals on planet Earth.  Socialism doesn't work; freedom and the free market does.  Advice to President Obama:  Warm brain before opening mouth.

 

--  Fri Jan 17, 2014  "I've got a pen and I've got a phone," said President Barack Obama.  Remember how FM Duck told its readers the major steps that most Dictators take on their Marxist tromp towards implementing state collectivism?  Step One:  The would-be Dictator, e.g., Adolph Hitler, Benito Mussolini, Fidel Castro, Mao Tse-Tung, and Barack Obama, for example, reveal how they have solved every problem in the world by reading Karl Marx's Communist Manifesto.  Step Two:  The would-be Dictator passes legislation or beats people to death to implement, for example, a national socialist health care system to save everybody from every sickness in the world.  Step Three:  The would-be Dictator's national health care plan crashes and burns and brings about the exact opposite of its proposed results.  Step Four:  The would-be Dictator claims his national socialist health care system was/is being undermined by his enemies and everybody else.  This is where the US is currently at in 2014 with President Obama's failed ObamaCare system.  Step Five:  The would-be Dictator issues proclamations to FORCE his national health care system down everybody's throats under penalty of incarceration.  Referring to the US Congress which Obama considers irrelevant, Obama is now ready to go around Congress by issuing Executive Orders (his illegal socialist proclamations) and calling his enforcers on the phone to implement his dictatorial proclamations.  Step Six:  Those who fail to "voluntarily" participate in the would-be Dictator's national socialist health care system will be fined, taxed, shipped to re-education camps, and eventually, exterminated for failure to make the Dictator's national socialist health care system a raging economic success.  It's the people's fault, not the would-be Dictator, he claims.  That is how it always happens and that is how Obama intends on becoming Dictator of America -- all for "good intentions" of course.  Will he succeed?  Tune in for the results of the 2014 and 2016 Elections and find out.  Yahoooooo, it's Adventure Time!  "I've got a pen and I've got a phone!"

 

--  Tue Jan 14, 2014  Where is the birth certificate?  Among the many records the Obama camp has refused to release are the marriage license of his father (Barack Sr.) and mother (Stanley Ann Dunham), name change records (Barry Soetero to Barack Hussein Obama), adoption records, records of his and his mother’s repatriation as U.S. citizens from Indonesia, baptism records, Noelani Elementary School (Hawaii) records, Punahou School financial aid or school records, Occidental College financial aid records, Harvard Law School records, Columbia senior thesis, Columbia College records, record with Illinois State Bar Association, files from his terms as an Illinois state senator, his law client list, medical records and passport records.  Various court cases are winding their way through America's judicial system.  When they will show up, nobody knows.  Possibly as early as March 2014.  Possibly others who have knowledge about this issue will get run over by a MACK truck, fall off a building, or crash in a plane in the ocean.  But one thing is for sure:  somebody is hiding something.
 

--  Sun Jan 12, 2014  The Commodities Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) does not even investigate JP Morgan's outrageous manipulation of gold and silver in the futures market.  Morgan appears to be able to flaunt established laws with complete impunity and not even bother to hide the fact. Why should it?  After all, JP Morgan is the Federal Reserve, our nation's illegal central bank.  This is just another good example of how central bankers own and control the earth -- including governments, entertainment, media, education, natural resources, food production, 'science', healthcare, and mega corporations. This is not free market banking.  This is government monopolized banking.  It is socialist banking.  They own us too by extracting wealth from every human each day via taxes, inflation, and market and interest rate manipulation and now bail ins and bail outs. They control former President Bush and current President Barack Obama.  They write the laws that enrich banks and impoverish humans and have governments enforce them. Where is the opposition that any thinking man or woman can support? The key word is "thinking."  That leaves Liberals out.  And most GOP Republicans.  Only the Tea Party and Libertarians understand, and I suspect many of them don't totally get it.  Incredibly, there is zero debate, and almost zero understanding of how central banking has a hammerlock on humanity -- or that central banking is not free market capitalism.  I repeat:  central, nationalized, monopolized banking is not free market capitalism. And this concept, not understood by one in a million individuals, is the root cause of all of our current economic AND Middle East war problems.  Inflation is a faster way to wipe out society than a full blown war.  Bankers have the sole right to create currency from nothing and charge the world interest on it. They have successfully erased 5,000 years of human history regarding how gold and silver are real money and have now substituted non-backed, non-receipts of paper, plastic, and fiat credit. Instead of real money, humans now work for credit at the bank. If you have a job, it's very likely that you are working for a banker-controlled entity. The actual model resembles the 'company town' concept where we work for company script that's only good at the company store. Welcome to Company America and welcome to the Company Bank, the Federal Reserve.  After we've 'paid' for company housing and supplies from the company store, there is nothing left. How and from where will the truth be realized so that people can begin to see and understand the complete tyranny we live under?  Don't feel too bad.  Rumor has it that even human ETs from Eros who live in a Pleades system vibrating a fraction of a second from our own Pleades system and are some 10,000 to 18,000 years advanced from us in most other sciences such as physics, chemistry, biology, astronomy and time travel do not completely comprehend the social-political-economic sciences involving what constitutes real money and what constitutes free market capitalism.  Ain't that a hoot?  ET humans showing up to planet Earth, and like Earth humans, think national socialism and Barack Obama's socialized health care system is the way to go, while simultaneously preaching individual rights and responsibilities throughout the universe.  Maybe something was lost in the translation -- much like something has been lost in the translation between ObamaCare and the US Constitution and Bill of Rights, between gold money and fiat paper currency, between Cause and Effect vis a vis what's real and what is not.  Somewhere, even the axiomatic primary, the Law of Identity, has been lost.  But don't worry, Mother Nature will always come back to bite us in the ass.  You can't fool Mother Nature.

--  Sat Jan 11, 2014  The Obama Administration just fired the computer contractor, CGI, who blew $680 million of taxpayer money and failed to implement Obama's Healthcare.gov system.  Now, the Barack Hussein Obama Administration is signing a new contract for $90 million with a new computer contractor to take over.  Why isn't this front page news?  Where is the left Liberal news media?  $680 million plus $90 million equals $770 million plus whatever else it has cost the government to try and implement a national socialist health care system.  Just think, all we really had to do to implement a reasonably low cost health care system is the same thing we have done to implement a reasonably low cost iPhone system, or automobile system, or shoes, or food, or any other free market commodity:  get the government out of the way of the free market and allow everybody to shop for health insurance anywhere in the world, cut the absurd medical lawsuits, and laissez-fricken-faire.  We all want inexpensive health care.  That's not the issue.  The issue is the methodology to bring it about.  The quickest method for the most people with high quality health care -- just like for every other commodity -- is through free market capitalism, not via the government.  Wake up Obama!  Wake up Liberals!  Socialists are those individuals who understand nothing about money, nothing about economics, nothing about freedom, nothing about private property rights or... the politicians understand all the above; they're just plain crooks who make their living by playing the role of redistribution brokers, redistributing the fruits of YOUR labor.  Or, let's just be nice and say Liberals are naive little 12-year olds whose educational level regarding money and economics is still at an elementary level, my dear Watson.  Meanwhile, where is Congress in approving this new $90 million that the Obama Administration is preparing to throw down another government rat hole?

--  Sat Jan 11, 2014  Liberal reasoning:  assumption, people are inherently too mean, rotten, stupid, and bad to allow them to live in freedom, i.e., free market capitalism.  Liberal solution: all the inherently mean, rotten, stupid, and bad people who are incapable of living in freedom go into a voting booth and vote for other inherently mean, rotten, stupid, and bad people (by definition, remember) to govern all the inherently mean, rotten, stupid, and bad people.  Wait a minute.  Isn't this a contradiction?  How can inherently bad people elect good government?  Are we supposed to believe that inherently bad people morph into saints by stepping into a voting booth and perform that which they were incapable of doing in freedom?  Is a voting booth some magic contraption?  Or could it be that Liberals are starting out with a false premise, using false methodology, and, therefore, bringing about a disastrous result:  namely, the creation of the very problem the Liberals presumably set out to solve?

--  Fri Jan 10, 2014  Hmm, let's see now... An American ambassador and three associates were murdered at the Benghazi Embassy over a year ago and the Obama Administration has done zip zero nadda nothing.  At a Congressional hearing last year, Sec of State Hillary Clinton said about the Benghazi murders, "Who gives a $hit (paraphrase), it's all over now!"  Zip zero nadda nothing.  But yesterday it was announced that last September a traffic lane on some bridge in New Jersey was temporarily blocked upon the orders of some minor GOP politicians to screw over the Democratic Mayor of Smallesville and all Hell breaks lose.  Obama ordered an FBI investigation yesterday, the Liberal news media is having a Major Big O, and New Jersey Gov Chris Christie spent over 2 hours on all the major TV networks answering asinine questions about a ridiculous traffic jam.  Oooh, wow, don't we Americans have our social-political-economic priorities in order.  The Federal Reserve is hyper-inflating us to the Moon and back, we have several wars going on in the Middle East, Obamacare is on the verge of bankrupting the US economy with millions of people losing their health care coverage, half the nation is on Food Stamps, unemployment is over 20%, they're rioting in Spain... and I don't like anybody very much... as the song goes...  Oh yeah:  let's not forget, the NSA is spying on everybody's emails, phones, texts, twitters, and personal thoughts in the bathroom.  Seriously?  A lane on a bridge in New Jersey was blocked for a day?  Call in the FBI?  Get a life, people.

--  Mon Jan 06, 2014  Yippee!  Obamacare cooks the books!  In the last days of Obamacare’s formulation, the projections had student loans folded into them to make them not seem so expensive.

“At the last minute, they said, ‘Look, let’s take what was then called the Student Aid and Fiscal Responsibility Act, make it part of healthcare and then we can make the budget numbers come out right… [W]e will take these projected profits from the student loans, and we will say that’s part of Obamacare.’”

This fiscal conjure trick could lead to more than just accounting problems in the future.

“It’s very dicey to look at federal profits on student loans, and say they will make those profits, and to know why they are doing it and what the money is being used for,” said one source. “To follow the smoke and mirrors of budgets — especially Obamacare — is impossible.”

--  Sat Jan 04, 2014  Was President Barack Obama born in the US and then pretended on US college applications that he was a foreign student born in Kenya and attended primary school in Indonesia?  Or, was President Obama actually born in Kenya and grew up in Indonesia?  If the former is true, and if American colleges Occidental, Columbia, and Harvard fell for it, then we can understand why the powers that be had to hide all of his college paperwork since they would have revealed that he applied for entrance and financial aid as a "foreign student," even though he was not.  That would constitute fraud and is a criminal offense.  He would immediately be impeached.  If on the other hand, he was actually born in Kenya, then he does not qualify to be president of the United States and would thus also qualify to be impeached.  Something has to explain why his college paperwork has been hidden from the public.  Whether it's the first reason or the second reason, he should be impeached.  If there is a third reason, namely, that he was just a regular Joe Doe American born in Hawaii, then why hide all of his university paperwork?  One does not have to be the famous Belgian detective Hercules Poirot to conclude that something stinks in Washington DC vis a vis faux president Barack Obama's curriculum vitae.

--  Sat Jan 04, 2014  Half of the women in the Marines could not perform the minimum physical test of 3 pull-ups to qualify for a combat position last year.  Now the program is on hold while politicians and idiots at the Chief of Staff level try to rethink their "politically correct" previous decision to open up combat positions for women.  Several questions:  why would a woman want to be "the quick or the dead?"  That's what a combat role is in the military?  2nd question:  why would the US Military even consider placing women in a position for which most women are unable to perform physically?  Not to mention the added problems of members of the opposite sex living in close quarters, close enough to encourage love/sex triangles and other related romantic escapades that impede a combat soldier's main mission?  In answer to the first question:  obviously some woman who is either delusional about what constitutes hand to hand combat or has a death wish.  The problem is that her delusions and denials are likely to get a lot of other combat soldiers killed when she can't scale a simple wall and her male counterparts are forced to go back to save her.  Or, she could thwart the entire mission, the success of which is dependent upon its weakest link.  In answer to the 2nd question:  it appears that the US Military has become physically dumbed-down for the sake of social and "political correctness."  What's next:  doing away with men's and women's categories in the Olympics and other sports?  Having said all that, there are plenty of other "combat" roles for women in the military such as flying aircraft in battle, intelligence and counter intelligence gathering, etc.  Men and women are not physically equal; mentally yes, physically no.  Men can't physically have babies; women can't physically perform 20 pull-ups and kick ass in hand to hand combat.  Yes, we can conjure up a transgender man and physically implant a fertilized egg so "he" can biologically have a baby, and yes we can find a body building woman who can do 20 pull-ups.  But these anomalies are not a sound or rational foundation for a US Military combat force like the Marines, the Army, or the Navy Seals.

Otter, I TOLD YOU SO, over a year ago!]  Fri Jan 04, 2013  Idaho Gov Butch Otter thinks he has tricked the federal government.  Yeah, he'll show Obama.  And ObamaCare.  Otter has OK'd the setting up of a national socialist health care system in the state of Idaho -- to go along with the federal government's ObamaCare program -- on the premise that if you voluntarily participate as the victim in a bank robbery, you can better control what happens when the bad guys dash in and say, "OK, stick 'em up!"  Yeah, right.  The bank robbers -- the ObamaCare feds -- get to hold the guns, pull the triggers, and steal your money while you get to stand there with your pants down and your hands up in the air.  Gov. Otter thinks that because the feds let him build Idaho's state health care exchange, paint the walls, hang up President Obama's picture in the entrance, and pave the parking lot, that he -- Gov. Otter -- is somehow in control of all the health care robberies that the federal government will be conducting in Idaho's -- or rather the fed's -- state health care exchange.  This is exactly what happened to the Jews in Germany in the 1930s.  Just let the Third Reich tattoo a number on your forearm.  We don't want to control your life.  No.  Uh-uh.  Just let the Third Reich place a little Star of David on your store.  We don't want to run your business.  No, of course we don't.  Oh, yeah, and now how about all of you citizens with the last name of Schwartzenfinkenheimerberg and brown eyes move into the special "ghettoes" the Third Reich has conveniently set up for you.  We don't want to control your movement, your freedom, or your rights.  No.  Just because we tattooed a number on your body, took over your business, and gave everybody free state education, free state medical care, free state lunches and free state yo-yos, doesn't mean your forced movement into a "ghetto" is an incarceration.  Just volunteer to march into our re-education "camps" and everything will be OK.  Yeah, you bet.  So, Gov. Otter, when do you finally stand up with a pair of cajones like the Libertarian or even GOP individual you claim to be and say, "Hell no!" to the federal government?  "No!" to ObamaCare?  "No," to the basic injustice of Obamacare that Congress, the President, and the Supreme Court is trying to foist down our throats?  Stop whining about how you have no choice.  Our forefathers had a choice to go along with the British or say, "No!"  The difference is:  Franklin, Jefferson, and Washington had a pair of moral philosophical balls.  Where are yours?  You're leading Idaho into the ultimate sate "ghetto" by voluntarily participating in a federal robbery of our rights.  In the beginning, you said, "No" to ObamaCare and now you are caving in to the federal government.  That's how it always happens, all throughout history.  The bad guys obtain the sanction of their victims just before they force them into cattle cars and then ship them off to "re-education" camps.  Thanks loads, Governor.  Pin a left Liberal sticker on your back because that's exactly where you're taking the state of Idaho.  State collectivism.  And you think you are outwitting Obama and his national socialist cronies?  Volunteering Idahoans to be the victims in ObamaCare is more stupid than volunteering to be the victims in your own bank robbery.  Wake up, Governor.  It's the 1930s all over again.  Don't make the same mistake.  You must abolish Obamacare before it abolishes us.  [Note:  It is now almost Jan 2014, a year after the above was written.  The federal version of Obamacare has crashed and burned,  6 million Americans have lost their health care insurance, and Idaho's state health care exchange version of Obamacare is a dismal failure.  Hello Gov.

--  Sun Dec 29, 2013  Whoa, pull up the barn floor, pour yourselves another hot cup of Rocket Java and listen up, girl friends.  President Obama ordered the Cabinet to cut $100,000,000 ($100 million) from the $3,500,000,000,000 ($3.5 trillion) federal budget.  I'm so impressed by this sacrifice that I have decided to do the same thing with my personal budget. I spend about $2,000 a month on groceries, household expenses, medicine, utilities, etc., but it's time to get out the budget cutting axe, go through my expenses, and cut back.  I'm going to cut my spending at exactly the same ratio (1/35,000) of my total budget. After doing the math, it looks like instead of spending $2,000 a month, I'm going to have to cut that number by six cents.  Yes, I'm going to have to get by with $1,999.94, but that's what sacrifice is all about.  I'll just have to do without some things, that are, quite frankly, luxuries - six cents worth.  "There are two ways to conquer and enslave a nation...

How Big is a Trillion Dollars?
Dec 27, 2013

Washington, DC  –  Whoa, girl friends, gather round, shut up, and pour yourselves another hot cup of Rocket Java.  Have you ever seen a million dollars?  How about a billion dollars?  What does One Trillion dollars look like?

   All this talk about "stimulus packages" and "bailouts"... A billion dollars here... a hundred billion dollars there... Eight hundred billion dollars for President Bush’s TARP bailout... Eight hundred billion dollars for President Obama’s ARRA “stimulus package”… One TRILLION dollars...

   What does that look like?

   Let’s start with a $100 dollar bill, currently the largest U.S. denomination in general circulation.

$100

   A packet of one hundred $100 bills is less than 1/2" thick and contains $10,000.  Fits in your pocket easily and is more than enough for a week or two of shamefully decadent fun.

$10,000

   Believe it or not, this next little pile is $1 million dollars (100 packets of $10,000).  You could stuff that into a grocery bag and walk around with it.

$1,000,000 (one million dollars)

   While a measly $1 million looked a little unimpressive, $100 million is a little more respectable.  It fits neatly on a standard pallet...

$100,000,000 (one hundred million dollars)

   And $1 BILLION dollars...

$1,000,000,000 (one billion dollars)

   Next let’s look at ONE TRILLION dollars.   More...

-- Wed Dec 25, 2013  Understanding the US economy in two easy steps:

US Tax revenue: $2,170,000,000,000 (trillion)

Federal budget: $3,820,000,000,000 (trillion)

New debt: $1,650,000,000,000 (trillion)

National debt: $14,271,000,000,000 (trillion)

Recent budget cuts: $38,500,000,000 (billion)

Let's now remove 8 zeros and pretend it's a household budget:

* Annual family income: $21,700

* Money the family spent: $38,200

* New debt on the credit card: $16,500

* Outstanding balance on credit card: $142,710

* Total budget cuts so far: $385

Got it ?

--  Tue Dec 24, 2013  President Obama, in his inimitable Emperor Nero style, leaned over the balcony of the White House yesterday -- all the way from the golf course in Hawaii -- and fiddled on his violin while his signature health care system, Obamacare, crashed and burned.  Obama's previously unconstitutional movement of the Affordable Healthcare Law's deadline to Dec 23rd as the last day to sign up for health insurance for 2014, has now been unconstitutionally moved, again, to midnight Dec 24th, Christmas Eve.  Who does he think he is?  Santa Claus?  So what happens if Obamacare crashes and burns on Christmas Eve and Americans can't sign up, again?  Who knows?  Maybe our Muslim Marxist Messiah will stop playing golf in Hawaii long enough to illegally proclaim another "due date" to sign up for Obamacare.  How about New Year's Eve?  What does the original law say?  Who knows, who cares?  Obama is now the law unto himself and apparently he can change any piece of legislation he wants anytime he feels like it.  Hey, why not just suspend all elections and Obamacare can be our Dictator King for as long as he wants.  Will infinity be long enough for him to implement his fundamental socialist changes for America?  Tune in next week for Obama's Adventure Time, as he unconstitutionally declares the government takeover of all US major car companies -- oops he already did that.  Sorry.  How about, tune in as Obama takes over all the communications companies in America: Google, Yahoo, MicroSoft, Facebook, and Twitter.  Oops he already did that, too, and incorporated them into the NSA, spying on everybody in the nation, collecting -- "but not actually reading" -- their private cough-cough private mail, yeah, uh-huh.  Let's all sing together, Obama's theme song, "Yo-ho, yo-ho, a pirate's life for me..."

--  Mon Dec 23, 2013  Whoa, pull up the barn floor, pour yourselves another hot cup of Rocket Java, and listen up, girl friends.  If Attorney Orly Taitz ends up dead in a month or two, you should be suspicious that it was no accident.  Who is Orly Taitz?  She is an attorney who has been investigating the legality of Obama's Social Security Number, the discovery of which would then answer the question about whether Obama was born in the US (Hawaii) or not.  As posted by reporter Tim Brown on Freedom Outpost in his article: Judge Rules Obama Social Security Card Fraud May Finally Get Answers, "According to a news release from Taitz, 'Judge Hollander in Maryland gives Attorney Orly Taitz 21 days to file a second amended complaint and add allegations in regards to an improper withholding by the Social Security Administration of records of Harry Bounel, whose Social security number is being illegally used by Barack Obama. When Taitz filed the complaint, SSA did not respond at all. After the law suit was filed, SSA responded by fraudulently claiming that the records were not found. Taitz responded that this is a fraudulent assertion, since the records were found before and denied to another petitioner due to privacy concerns, however Social Security has no right to claim privacy as according to their own 120 year rule they have a duty to release the records. The judge stated that the plaintiff Taitz might be correct, however at this time she cannot rule in her favor as her original complaint was filed before SSA responded, so the judge gave Taitz an opportunity to re-file a second amended complaint and add new allegations, stating the SSA responded but improperly hid the records . This is a great development. This all but assures that the judge will order the SSA to release the SS-5, Social Security application of resident of CT, Harrison (Harry) Bounel, whose CT SSN 042-68-4425 was stolen by Obama and used in Obama’s 2009 tax returns, which initially were posted on WhiteHouse.gov without proper redaction, without flattening of the file. Taitz will be very careful not to be Breitbarted or Fuddied in the next 21 days.'"  What Taitz is referring to, that she will be “careful not to be Breitbarted or Fuddied,” is that she "believes that both Andrew Breitbart and Loretta Fuddy were targeted by Obama for assassination.” Breitbart died on the very day that he said he would begin vetting Obama for the 2012 elections, which raised suspicions. Fuddy, best remembered as being instrumental in issuing the Hawaii long-form birth certificate [FM Duck Note:  which many authorities have claimed was an obvious fake], was the only person to die aboard a small plane that crashed off the cost of Hawaii last week.  Already there are questions surrounding Fuddy's death.  In addition, the mother of one of Obama's gay, crackhead friends during his college years alleges that it was not coincidental that her son and two other gay buddies were all killed within a 6-week period just before the 2008 presidential elections that Obama won.  In addition, Taitz claims somebody, somehow is tampering with her private server and internet connections to prevent the sending of mass e-mails.  Like we said above, if attorney Orly Taitz all of a sudden has an "accident," you should be suspicious.  And greatly concerned.
 

--  Sun Dec 22, 2013  President Obama has now declared that the Affordable Care Law passed by Congress is only a set of Suggested Flexible Guidelines that he can alter at will -- which he did, again, last night for the umpteenth time.  And from where does Obama claim he obtains this newly found power to alter Congressional laws?  Certainly not from Article 2, Sections 1, 2, 3, or 4 which enumerate Executive Branch powers, or from anywhere else in the US Constitution.  Obama, last night before jumping on Air Force One to play golf in Hawaii for the next 17 days over the Christmas holidays, popped up on national TV and declared his umpteenth change to Congress's Affordable Care Act:  namely, individuals whose health plans were canceled -- what are we up to now, 6 million people? -- will now automatically qualify for a “hardship exemption” from the ACA mandate. If they can’t or don’t sign up for a new plan, they don’t have to pay the penalty tax. They can also get a special category of ObamaCare insurance designed for people under age 30.  This is 2-3 times higher than people were paying before losing their existing health care plans that Obama PROMISED (but knew otherwise) they could keep under the new ACA.  Obama's latest announcement was not a surprise to the insurance companies who thought the Affordable Care Act was a real law, with mandates that, if violated, are punishable by law.  And, in fact, the insurance companies had to drop millions of health care policies over the last three years because the Affordable Care Act mandated that their insurance policies be changed in accordance with the new law.  So, we have at least two big questions:  (1) From where does Obama's Executive Branch obtain the authority to change Congress's legislative laws, and (2) which is the real Affordable Care Act law that all Americans must follow or end up being taxed, fined, sued, or end up in court?  Which suggestion or guideline that Obama issues in regard to his latest alteration of the Affordable Care Act should attorneys and judges refer to when insurance companies and individuals show up in court to adjudicate any differences of opinion?  What would the Supreme Court rule upon:  the ACA as passed by Congress, or the ACA as changed day-to-day by President Obama and his Executive Department?  By the way, you know that parking ticket you received last week for parking in the red zone in front of that fire hydrant in downtown New York?  You don't really have to pay it; it was only a suggested guideline.  Welcome to America where there are no longer any laws, only Suggested Flexible Guidelines.

--  Tue Dec 17, 2013  Referring to the Obama administration’s executive action to unilaterally allow younger illegal immigrants brought to the United States by their parents to be exempt from enforcement laws after Congress rejected the DREAM Act, Congressman Gowdy said Obama was “substituting” his judgment for Congress’s.  The Big Question is:  which other laws can the president ignore?  “If you can turn off immigration laws, if you can turn off mandatory minimums in our drug statutes, if you can turn off the so called Affordable Care Act, why not election laws?” Gowdy said. “Assume that a statute said you had to provide two forms of ID to vote. Can the president require three forms of ID? Can the president require one form of ID? Can he suspend all requirements that you show ID? And if not, why not. If you can turn off certain categories of law, do you also not have the power to turn off all categories of the law?”  And this is why many Americans are so concerned that President Obama will try to declare martial law, suspend the US Constitution, and demand that he continue to be President for an unknown further period of time.  Why not?  This is exactly what he's doing with Congress's Affordable Care Act and other pieces of legislation.  How far can he go in violating the Constitution?  When will the US Congress take action to curb President Obama's unconstitutional actions?

--  Fri  Dec 13, 2013  Wake up Idahoans!  Georgia and South Carolina have just introduced legislation to dump their state Obamacare health exchanges.  It's time for Idahoans to contact their legislators and demand that they introduce a bill to dump Idaho's state Obamacare exchange, too.  Unless you've been living in Bongo Tongo or took a trip to Mars for the last two months, you should already know from national news that the roll-out of not only the Obamacare web site www.heathcare.gov but the entire Obamacare system is a complete total train wreck.  Nobody has completed the sign up process to pay for health care on the federal Obamacare web site because the payment software routines have yet to be written.  The 385,000 people who HHS Sec Kathleen Sebelius said have navigated as far as they could on Healthcare.gov will soon find out that they, in fact, do not have insurance, have lost their current insurance, their new insurance will cost double or triple, their deductibles will be double or triple, and if they show up to their hospital or doctor, they will not be covered.  The Obamacare administration predicted they would have 7 million people signed up for Obamacare -- vs. the 385,000 suckers who "think" they have signed up for new health insurance -- and when January 2014 hits, the entire health care industry will simply run off the tracks and crash over a giant economic cliff.  In Idaho, Gov Otter and his RINO friends forced Idaho into an Obamacare state health exchange on the premise that if Idaho didn't become pro-active then the federal government would take over and force Idaho into Obamacare.  They were wrong.  And nothing could be further from the truth.  The federal government can't even create a viable web site to sign anybody up.  Obamacare is collapsing at every level, federal state and local, and threatens to implode every state's Medicaid budget as more and more people opt out of their current medical plans -- or have their insurance policies cancelled due to non-compliance with the new mandates of Obamacare -- and then qualify for their state's Medicaid.  This will be a total fiscal disaster since no state has the funding to pay for this huge influx of new health care recipients into their Medicaid system.  One wonders whether the powers that be in Idaho simply wanted to establish a state health exchange for their political buddies in the insurance and legal industry, like they've done for a lot of other pieces of pernicious legislation.  Gov Otter, now a certified RINO just like former Gov Jim Risch (now a US Senator who loves to hoity-toity his butt around the parties in Washington DC) and Dirk Kempthorne (now a lobbyist for a major corporation in Washington DC), is now facing a major political fight for the next term of Governor.  Idaho Senator Russ Fulcher, a Tea Party supporter and opponent of Idaho's state health care exchange, is gaining support among all those Idahoans who have experienced the cancellation of their health insurance and increased cost and deductibles of their new health insurance policies.  The only way that Gov Otter can redeem himself and possibly retain his governorship of the state of Idaho is to immediately repeal Idaho's state health care exchange.  If he doesn't, it may well be bye-bye to fake Libertarian Otter.  As we have said over and over for the last decade, Gov Otter is a Republican-on-Monday, Democrat-on-Tuesday, RINO-on-Wednesday, left-Liberal-on-Thursday, Libertarian-on-Friday, Cowboy-on-Saturday, and Catholic-on-Sunday.  Ya-yesss, the boy's just an Everybody's Man; he's for Everything all the time and Everywhere.  Which means, as The Beatles sang, "He's a real nowhere man."

--  Thur Dec 05, 2013  Very few people understand the moral philosophical principles underlying President Barack Obama's motives for creating and implementing a nationalized health care system -- the Affordable Care Act, commonly called Obamacare.  What are those principles and where did they come from?  First, President Obama believes in altruistic state collectivism, not just for health care but for every commodity and service in the market.  His dictum is:  "from each according to his ability, to each according to his needs."  In other words, all goods and services do not belong to those who produced them.  They belong to the "collective" and should be distributed by the government, and the basis for that distribution should be "needs-based."  Obama's view:  screw the producer, the other half of the producer-consumer exchange process.  In the field of health care, President Obama consulted the brother of Rahm Emanuel, Obama's previous Chief of Staff and now Chicago's first Jewish mayor.  [Note: now there's a contradiction in terms: a Muslim Brotherhood's President (Obama) with a Jewish Chief of Staff.  Go figure.]  Rahm Emanuel's brother is Ezekiel Emanuel, a medical doctor at the National Institute of Health (NIH) and a member of that institution's Bio Ethical Department.  Ezekiel Emanuel and other MD's published many papers such as an article in Lancet in 2009 regarding how to ethically choose which patients should receive how much, if any, of which treatment, from flu shots to organ transplants.  The moral philosophical basis for Ezekiel's so-called bio-ethical choices all rest upon the philosophical foundation of the idea that people are cogs in a state collective, with the government's function being the redistribution broker.  Which means the function of the government doctors -- along with bureaucrats -- is to ration medical services and commodities to the members of society as per their "usefulness" to the state collective.  Contrast that ideology to: individual rights to freely exchange, private property, and free market capitalism.  In the latter, goods and commodities are not rationed; voluntary market forces bring supply to demand.  And then prices drop.  In a socialist system, there are no free market prices to even determine if there is a market shortage in one of the many millions of related services or commodities that result in finished products.  Bureaucrats set fake prices using Sears Mail Order Catalogues, as they did in the USSR.  So, right off the bat, President Obama followed the ridiculous advice of a group of so-called bio-ethical medical doctors at the NIH who not only hold metaphysical, epistemological, and moral philosophical views of state collectivism -- i.e. socialism -- they co-authored papers in the medical journal Lancet that not only discusses how to ration medical care but also show charts for what former Alaskan Gov Sarah Palin called "Death Panels."  Ezekiel Emanuel's charts were called "Reaper Charts."  Why?  Because they showed the age groups -- such as before age 15 and above age 60 -- that various types of medical care should be withheld based upon various criteria such as the individual's usefulness to the state collective. The Big Question is: determined by whom?  You may not have heard about Ezekiel Emanuel's "The Complete Lives System."  It's the intellectual underpinning for Obama's Affordable Care Act, and it's frightening.  You can Google Ezekiel's articles for bio-ethics in Lancet Medical Journals.  Now let that morality sink into your brain for a minute and you will start realizing what President Barack Obama and his left Liberal administration is trying to shove down your throats with Obamacare.  Gov Palin had it correct:  Obamacare is the moral philosophical concretization of Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel's state collectivist ideology and that ideology's driving force for government rationing of health care ultimately rests upon their "bio-ethical" premises underlying their "Reaper Charts" -- or "Death Panels."  This is the same ideology that led to -- not at first, but the ultimate logical conclusion -- of Adolph Hitler's national health care system that ended in The Holocaust as it's final solution.  Classes of individuals were declared "unfit" or "not useful" for the political leaders' state collectivist regime.  So they, as a class of people, like America's class of youth under age 15 or over age 60 in Ezekiel Emanuel's moral philosophy, are targets for elimination under the 2,700 pages of Obamacare legislation -- plus 20,000 pages, so far, of IRS and other bureaucratic rules.  Obamacare -- ridiculously called the Patient's Protection and Affordable Care Act -- is one of the most evil and pernicious pieces of moral philosophy ever proposed by an American President.  Plain and simple, it is simply another form of genocide couched in Hollywood marketing of the worse kind.  For doctors, Obamacare is blatantly against their Hippocratic Oath to save and protect all life.  Obama's current marketing campaign for the next 20 days before Christmas in 2013 is to try to gain the sanction of his and Ezekiel Emanuel's victims, which is you.  Your job is to vote in the Elections of 2014 and dump all those politicians -- both Liberals and RINOs -- who support Obamacare.  It's worth your life.

--  Tue Dec 03, 2013  Called "Evangelii Gaudium" (The Joy of the Gospel), Pope Francis blamed the existence of money, free market capitalism, and -- by implication -- the entire moral philosophy upon which rests the ideology of individual rights, private property rights, and the foundation of a limited republic as the CAUSE of poverty throughout the world.  Really?  What a dope the Pope is.  There are so many misconceptions and untruths underlying Pope Francis' assumptions and thus erroneous conclusions that one wonders where to start to refute them.  Let's just hit the basic basics of economics and free market philosophy.  First, money per se is not bad.  Money is simply a medium of economic exchange, taking the place of direct barter until said commodities/services can be exchanged later.  Nobody intends to eat gold money -- or a paper receipt for it -- or build a house out of it.  What Pope Francis is erroneously referring to as the result of money and capitalism is actually the result of fiat currency and the market being manipulated by the state collectivists (fascists, communists, socialists, dictators) who have gotten control of our paper and credit money supply, namely the Federal Reserve and all other national central banks in the world.  But these monetary manipulators are not free market capitalists and their manipulated money is not backed by anything.  They are counterfeiters.  Pope Francis -- like most people -- does not understand what money is and what constitutes the foundational ideas of free market economics.  So he erroneously believes the propaganda spewed out daily by government news media and thus blames the wrong group and for the wrong reasons.  In short, the Pope is rather ignorant about basic social-political-economics.  It is government intervention into the free market, going off the gold and silver standard for money, and the philosophy of Karl Marx -- from each according to their ability, to each according to their needs -- that has brought poverty to a large portion of the world.  Prices of products under true capitalism tend toward zero as capital is accumulated; "prices" under socialism tend toward infinity -- i.e. absence of goods on the shelves -- as there are no real "prices" under socialism, only government mandated math values stuck up on items or issued with ration cards.  Does capitalism get rid of all crooks?  Of course not.  But that's the only reason for government:  to protect and adjudicate law breakers.  Does socialism get rid of crooks?  Absolutely not, and, in fact, it routes the most vicious clever crooks directly into positions of government power where they are then in charge of making up the laws to protect their criminal actions.  Capitalism produces the highest quality of life for the most people than any other arrangement because it is founded upon principles of individual rights and responsibilities.  Socialism is founded upon dog-eat-dog vicious politics.  Pope Francis, in attacking free market capitalism and not defining what money really is, does himself and his global congregation a huge disservice by drawing wrong conclusions from wrong foundational assumptions.  His ideas are not defending the poor; his ideas are sending them into the very poverty he is complaining about.  Note that Pope Francis and President Obama have come to the same fallacious economic conclusions... based upon the same fallacious economic sophisms.  And hence the birth of Liberals in the US and their continued fallacious education -- from Kindergarten through University grad school -- in the Marxist philosophy of altruistic state collectivism.

--  Tue Dec 03, 2013  The NY Times wrote a Pablum piece about President Obama's broken National Socialist Health Care Web Site and slopped over the real problems by talking about nonsensical bull$hit.  The Wikipedia definition of "Pablum" is that it's a baby food cereal product derived from the word "pabulum," which means "foodstuff."  "The word can also refer to something that is bland, mushy, unappetizing, or infantile," says Wikipedia and that is a great description of Obama's crashing Web Site Healthcare.gov, not to mention the program as a whole.  The NY Times article -- in it's characteristically left Liberal manner -- tried to appear FOXY "fair and balanced" but anybody who knows anything about designing and implementing computer software systems knows better.  Fortunately, so do most of the users who have by now lost their current insurance coverage.  The major problem of course is not computer software per se; it is the simple fact that socialism can never work and no amount of technology can change that fact.  But just for fun, lets' delve briefly into some of Healthcare.gov's software/technology problems.  First, they did not have a real project manager.  A real project manager coordinates all phases of a project from beginning to end.  Only in the last month did the Obamacare idiots discover they needed a "systems integrator."  Which is another word for PROJECT MANAGER, you know, with a project management plan book.  And they needed tools such as Critical Path Management (CPM) to discover which series of tasks fall on the critical path and thus need special attention.  My personal experience includes 40 years of project coding, analysis, project management, system integration, testing, CPM and Branch Management of multiple simultaneous projects in the Pacific Northwest.  One project I managed included developing and implementing MicroSoft's international financials with a project manager, programmers/analysts, and other techies.  We were the consultants doing the work; MicroSoft provided other software and user/client personnel.  When one of my programmers missed a flight, I rolled up my sleeves (even as Pacific Northwest Branch Mgr) and wrote some of the code myself.  The system was a success, came in under budget, and we broke out the champagne after implementation.  The point is, when I read things such as Obama's Healthcare.gov online system contains 500 million lines of code, one can only wonder what the hell is going on.  Nobody would write 500 million lines of code these days unless they were just trying to bleed the consulting dollars out of a stupid client.  In the old days, 1st Generation software was written in 0's and 1's: called binary code.  2nd General software was written in Assembler Language, a step up from binary.  3rd Generation software was written in COBOL and FORTRAN, mainly, and 4th Generation software was written in high level English with most subroutines already built in.  One doesn't need to re-invent so many lines of code.  To put it in perspective, several hundred or even a thousand lines of COBOL can equal one line of 4th GL.  So one can see, as Prof Cobb at IBM showed, development in a 4GL prototyping language saved companies millions of dollars in project time with very few errors, relatively speaking.  Today, one uses 4GL and Object Oriented coding (OO) that should save tons and tons of time, especially in testing and gorilla-proofing one's design, testing, integration, and implementation of any project.  So, the Big Question about Obama's Healthcare.gov software project is:  what the hell level of software writing is being used to crank out this piece of crap?  Binary?  Assembler? 3GL?  What the... ?  So, there was no project management, way too many lines of code (which is why it took 3 years to produce pure garbage and cost so much and overran the schedule, which didn't exist anyway, i.e. no CPM), and on top of it all:  socialism for any commodity or service cannot succeed due strictly to basic economics, mainly, the destruction of price formations which can only occur in a true free market.  Forget the technology; it's economics that will kill Obamacare. The NY Times Pablum piece in which several writers wringed their little hannies about what Obama and his minions should do next to save their asses, misses the entire point.  It doesn't matter how many "gurus" you throw at Healthcare.gov, it doesn't solve the economic reality and it violates every American citizen's rights of privacy to their own mind, body, and health.  Valerie Jarrett, HHS Sec Sebelius and Barack Obama, along with a few selected other Socialists in Congress (Democrats and RINOs), should be ridden out of town on a wooden rail with lots of splinters up their ridiculous little butts.  $650 million dollars to write 500 million lines of code?  Hey, somebody just robbed the taxpayers again... Big Time.

--  Fri Nov 29, 2013  We all knew this scenario was bound to happen due to the ObamaCare roll out:  a seven year old boy with cancer who was receiving chemotherapy has just been dropped from his health care insurance due to the rules in ObamaCare.  Let's analyze this for a nanosecond.  The reason all the Liberals clamored for a national socialist government health care system in the first place was because they said they needed to save all the poor little children in the world who needed -- and had a "right to receive" -- health care from somebody, which we all know must be the health care professionals since we also know that one doesn't receive health care from the government; the government is only acting as the redistribution broker with hundreds of thousands of bureaucrats showing up to read each other's reports in quadruplicate.  While Liberals granted "rights to receive" for the poor little children, they ignored those same rights of the doctors.  In other words, "rights" were redefined on a philosophical foundation of "needs-based."  Your "right to receive" is based upon the subjective determination of how "needy" you are.  Or who your friends are in The Capital, Washington DC.  The Liberals are great at creating "most needy" lists and dumping private property rights and the free market.  So along comes ObamaCare with its ridiculous government health care rules, and ends up canceling the health care policies of the very children they were clamoring to save.  Duh, what a contradiction.  More importantly, how arrogant is it for anybody (like Obama and his Board of Health Care Bureaucrats) to claim that they have the knowledge to replace the trillions and trillions of voluntary decisions in the free market with their own subjective decisions?  Not only do the Liberals destroy the creation of free market prices (which tend toward zero in any true free market), they then make it impossible for ANY type of market for that commodity to exist because, having destroyed the free market mechanism that allows prices to form, nobody can then make economic calculations or business decisions vis a vis supply and demand, which has been distorted with government regulations.  So not only is the process of implementing a national health care system a Fool's Errand at face value, it is impossible to "correct" this aberration with different/new/additional government regulations because the basic foundation for price formation has been destroyed.  The only solution to the absurdities of a nationalized health care system is, of course, the complete abolishment of Obamacare.  This is true, in general, of any socialist intervention into the free market.  Socialism destroys markets; one must get rid of socialism to restore a free market.  Socialism and free markets are mutually exclusive.  The bad joke is that neither President Obama, HHS Secretary Sebilius, all the computer geniuses in the world, or anybody else can -- according to basic laws of free market economics -- create a national health care system -- or any national economic services/commodities system -- because the very act of trying to create such a centrally-managed system is the very act that destroys it.  Economist F. A. Hayek won a Nobel Prize in Economics by showing that prices (exchange ratios) can only be formed in a free and open market:   it's called the subjective theory of price formation.  To claim that anybody -- like the government -- can simply create any ol' price for any ol' commodity or service in the market misses the point:  if it isn't done in freedom, it doesn't reflect supply and demand or the desires of the consumers.  Insurers do not set health care prices in a free market; consumers set all prices in a true free market.  If Liberals don't like free market prices, they are, de facto, telling all consumers to go to Hell.  Back to the contradiction in the premises of ObamaCare -- and socialism in general:  Socialism always brings about exactly the opposite of their implementers' intended desire.  "Affordable health care insurance" must necessarily bring about unaffordable health care insurance, no matter what the intentions were.  We now have another perfect example of how the stupid Liberals -- not understanding even the basics of free market economics, or private property rights, or individual rights to voluntarily exchange commodities and services in an open market -- created the very problem that they said they were going to solve:  namely, screwing over a seven year old boy with cancer by implementing a government health care program (ObamaCare) that forces him to lose his health care during his cancer treatment with his doctor.  The solution? ObamaCare must be abolished and we must allow a free market in all commodities and services.  Individuals must be responsible for their own actions and stop trying to use the government as some sort of commodities distribution broker.  That is not the Congress' job; that is not the President's job.  Those stupid Liberals who claim we cannot go back to the health care system that existed previous to ObamaCare are not telling the truth:  i.e., the health care system that existed previous to ObamaCare was NOT a free market system.  It was liberal President Lyndon Johnson's Great Society --  GOVERNMENT-MANAGED -- health care system that existed before ObamaCare that caused the previous health care crises.  That system, with insurance monopolies established in every state in the union, citizens not allowed to buy competing health insurance across state lines, not to mention all the government Medicare intervention and exorbitant costs, including billions of dollars in waste and fraud, that was causing America's health care crisis.  We must go back before that, to our founding principles and bring back individual rights, private property, and true free market capitalism.  Otherwise, government health care will bankrupt the entire American economy, just like it has in Europe and other Third World nations.

--  Thur Nov 28, 2013  Three women -- one from Idaho -- have just passed the Marines' infantry combat obstacle school and now qualify for positions on the front line, or wherever it may be that soldiers participate in hand-to-hand combat.  Previous to last year, women in the US Military were not allowed to be assigned to infantry combat positions.  Women could fly combat aircraft but not duke it out as a ground pounder.  While it's obvious that these women are capable of running obstacle courses and climbing walls, there is the bigger question of a commanding officer trying to run a combat unit with the additional psychological problems of male-female close living quarters.  I will leave it to your imagination about all the infinite number of relationships -- good and bad, depending on each trooper's position -- that will now be added to, and thus affect, the combat equation.  The target objective of a combat mission can now become more complicated by male-female relationships within the unit, including jealousy, that could greatly affect how the unit will react during infantry combat.  A further problem is what the enemy may think of women soldiers that they capture, especially Middle East Muslims who do not regard women as equals, and thus will treat them worse than captured men.  There is no Geneva Convention in the vocabulary of the Middle East Muslim terrorists.  How would you, as a US CO in combat, like to send a Mom with two children into ground combat in Afghanistan -- even if she can climb a wall and run with a 60-lb back pack (which is a stupid set of criteria in the first place and which places the current US Military in about the same absurd conditions required by the British military that the Colonists defeated in the American Revolution).  There is a big difference between women obtaining full equal rights, and the concept of "equality."  Women are not equal to men in physical ability or else the Olympics would have removed the men-women barrier a long time ago.  Three women who can perform the same physical abilities as men on a marine obstacle course does not remove all the psychological problems that they bring to the male-female combat arena.  Before you cheer that men and women in the military are now all equal, be very careful what you wish for.  For those of you who have never served in a war zone, be very careful how you judge this new military "equality" for women:  infantry combat. 

--  Thur Nov 28, 2013  US Dictator-President Barack Obama has just broken the law again.  Now what?  The Affordable -- Ha Ha Affordable -- Health Care Law mandates that small businesses must start participating in ObamaCare next week.  This is the law.  It is not just a guideline passed by Congress.  It is the law, just like all the other laws passed by Congress and subject to judicial and statutory regulations.  But now, as of yesterday, Dictator-President Barack Obama has just declared that small businesses do not have to start enrolling their employees into the Affordable Ha Ha Affordable Health Care system until Nov 15, 2014, two weeks after the 2014 Elections for Congress.  What a coincidence.  And what a law-breaking action this is.  No president or US Congressman or judge can just pop up one morning and declare that certain sections or clauses of a US law can be arbitrarily changed.  This can only be done by Congress by going through its legislative procedures as outlined in the US Constitution.  That is why we have checks and balances between the three branches of government:  to prevent the dictatorial actions that Obama has just taken.  US Dictator-President Barack Obama is now embarking upon dangerously litigious territory:  unconstitutionally declaring changes in various laws, specifically his ACA Obamacare Law.  The Big Question:  will the US Congress just sit on their thumbs and pretend that US Dictator-President Barack Obama can rewrite their legislation any ol' time he feels like it?  Or will somebody in Congress finally grow a pair of cajones and call the President's on his illegal action?  By the way, some additional 50 - 100 million people may well lose their current health care insurance as ObamaCare kicks in and employers figure out that it's cheaper to not cover their employees through the ACA.  Ceteris paribus, if nothing else changes, all private insurance companies will soon go out of business and the Obama thugs will have obtained their single payer government system -- a national socialist health care system -- which was their goal in the first place.  Anybody who didn't see this coming is blind as a bat.  Like, who is John Galt?

-- Tue Nov 26, 2013  Two major problems with the Obama Administration inking a fake Peace Treaty with Iran:  (1)  The US should have taken action to completely halt all existing and new implementations of nuclear power plants in Iran because the Muslim Mullahs will simply continue their goal of manufacturing war-grade uranium for nuclear bombs, and (2) The US should be taking the lead to stop all current usage of nuclear power plants both in America and all over the world because nuclear power plants are unsafe for a number of reasons, the least of which is that they can blow sky high from either another nation's electronic blast in our atmosphere or a huge solar flare from our sun.  The later is according to information from -- bear with me on this -- Billy Meier and his ongoing conversations with ET humans (the Plejaren) from Eros in the DERN system.  Whether you believe that there exist other extra-terrestrial humans in our Milky Way Galaxy and throughout the rest of the universe at large, you should check out their information and pay close attention to what they have to say about planet Earth.  Earth humans, according to the Plejaren, do not yet have the technology nor the knowledge to be using nuclear power plants, and, in fact, the Plejaren give examples about how on another planet their forefathers made the same mistake with nuclear power plants before a solar eruption in their system blew their nuclear plants sky high and made much of their planet uninhabitable.  So, besides the fact that the Iran religious dictators, the Mullahs, are lying about their future peaceful use of nuclear power plants, they -- like all nations on Earth -- would be wise to start planning the usage of alternate sources of energy such as free energy from the vacuum (space) that Tesla already demonstrated to us 100 years ago vs. nuclear or non-reusable bio fuels.  Of course, that would mean that the oil and banking industries who are big lobbyists -- playing the role of corporate welfare, which is SOCIALISM or state collectivism, not free market capitalism -- in the US Congress and with the Obama Administration will do everything they can to retain their state interventionist position with oil.  Even from Iran's lying point of view, they do not need to create nuclear power plants because they're sitting on billions of dollars of tradable oil to China and Russia.  Not advocating that they should use bio fuels; just saying this fact belies their true interests in cranking up their phony nuclear power plants.  They aren't Greenies and the cost to build nuclear power plants are not cheap.  The worst part of the deal that the Obama Administration just made with Iran is that the Mullahs' fairytale religion of Islam contains the edict that it is OK to blow up the entire Earth because they are so horny they fantasize about the supposed thrill of raping 72 virgins.  Thanks, Barack.  You may well have paved several paths to the Earth's ultimate destruction:  solar flare blow ups or the Mullahs detonating enough nuclear bombs to accomplish the same thing.  Never mind the low level nuclear energy that is currently being emitted by all existing nuke power plants -- emissions that Earth scientists do not know about unless they read Billy Meier's FIGU web site, which they will not because they are having a big chuckle about the existence of ET humans in the first place.  How arrogant Earth humans are.  And how small minded when you think about the size of the universe and the existence of millions of other ET humans living in it.

--  Sat Nov 23, 2013  The Making of a Dictator, or How Does One Evolve From a Mild Mannered President Into a Raving Dictator?  First, the mild mannered president pops up with a childish idea, such as, let's say, oh... I know, let's use the collective coercive force of government to provide healthcare to every citizen in the nation.  Based upon what ideology?  Based upon, hmm let me think, oh yeah the idea that one person, or group of people, have the inherent right to receive the fruits of another person's labor.  Namely, citizens have the right to receive medical care from doctors.  Which means that doctors have the reciprocal right to receive free toilet cleaning and rental cars from other citizens.  I mean, like, fair is fair, right?  And the role of government?  The mild mannered President and 16,000 new IRS agents get to be the Distributor of Medical Care Rights, Toilet Cleaning Rights, and Rental Car Rights.  I mean, fair is fair, right?  Plumbers and car rental agents get medical care as an inherent right, and the doctors get clean toilets and rental cars as an inherent right.  Fair is fair.  Expanding on this wonderful idea, everybody now has the right to receive free commodities and services from everybody else with the mild mannered -- but now rather aggressive -- President acting as Santa Claus.  Then, after dumping the free market -- the only environment in which prices for all commodities and services can be created in order for businesses to be able to make calculations and forecast whether (and in which order) economic tasks can be performed -- the mild mannered aggressive President's We Will Redistribute Everything Law collapses and burns.  No problem.  Now the mild mannered, aggressive, angry President blames the health industry, the plumbers, and the car rental agencies for the collapse of what the mild mannered, aggressive, angry and ranting President just knows deep in his heart should be working -- just like he learned at Harvard University from reading Marx and Engels.  When all the future milestones to implement the mild mannered, aggressive, angry, ranting President's Non-Affordable, Non-Accessible, Non-Existent medical care, clean toilets, and rental cars continue to fail, the mild mannered, aggressive, angry, ranting and raving President declares martial law, suspends the US Constitution, abolishes Congress and the US Supreme Court and begins loading doctors, plumbers, and car rental agents into cattle cars and shipping them off to Auschwitz, Illinois -- about five miles north of Chicago.  Why?  Because everybody in the nation is responsible for the failure of what the mild mannered, aggressive, angry, ranting and raving President knew would have worked if only all the bastards in the nation had fully cooperated with him, his Regime, and the ideas of Karl Marl and Grimm's Fairytales.

--  Fri Nov 22, 2013  Here's the Big Question of The Day:  Did the Obama Administration cleverly and knowingly orchestrate the failure of Obamacare's roll out on purpose or are they simply as incompetent as they appear?  First, let's trek down Logic Path A that assumes Obamacare was, and is, being engineered to fail at all levels in order to reach the goal of a single payer government system:  nationalized health care.  (1) Obamacare is passed by Congress with 2,700 pages of gobble-de-gook that nobody has fully read or understands.  (2)  US Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts -- either acting under threats from the Obama Administration or delusions of what constitutes "Constitutionality" -- introduces the term "tax" into the Obamacare Bill in order to get around the term "fee," so he can rule (5-4) that "taxes" are constitutional, and thus Obamacare is "constitutional."  This was necessary for the next steps.  (3) The Obama Admin knowingly rolls out a flawed and incomplete Healthcare.gov Web Site for people to try to sign up for Obamacare.  5.5 million people lose their current insurance and doctors, receive notices that double/triple or quadruple the cost of a new insurance policy and/or deductibles, but cannot sign up on the Healthcare Web Site because it's broken and the payment software programs have not even been written yet.  Which means nobody can or could have signed up.  (4) President Obama pops up on national TV and illegally pulls a new change to the Obamacare Law out of his ass and declares that everybody can keep their previous insurance that the Affordable Health Care Act "legally" says they can't.  All of a sudden, nobody knows what the real law is:  the one Congress passed and the President signed off on, or the latest change that Obama ad-libbed in a rambling diatribe on national TV?  Which direction do you go?  Can you, or a company, be sued if you, or a company, choose one direction or the other?  Can the government be sued? (5)  Now that Obama has purposely dumped 5.5 million people off their current insurance policies, he and Valerie Jarrett will next watch as 50 - 100 million employees lose their insurance polices when employers discover that the costs are prohibitive and dump their insurance coverage for employees.  (6)  Now, as planned, 150 million or more individuals have either no insurance, or have extremely high insurance costs, or have now qualified for Medicare, Medicare that is now an unfunded liability to the tune of $90 trillion or more dollars.  (7)  Now that the entire health care system of the US has been completely wiped out, the Obama Administration can finally blame the insurance companies, the youth of America who chose to pay a fine rather than sign up to subsidize everybody else's health care costs, and your grandmother's dog's left ear.  (8)  Oh, what to do, what to do...  "Oh, I know," says Obama.  "We simply have to morph the Obamacare system into a single payer, national socialist government health care system.  You know, the type of system that we originally planned for and have arrived at by pretending to implement a fake market-based health care system.  Yahoo, thank you, my dear little victims!"  Welcome to Hell.  Or let's take a quick gander at the Logic for Path B, entitled, We Are Seriously Trying to Implement Good Health Care But We Are Just a Bunch of Incompetents.  (1)  Obama and the socialist Democrats pass Obamacare, not knowing what's in the 2,700 pages of gobble-de-gook.  (2)  The IRS and HHS add thousands more pages of contradictory rules. (3)  The US Supreme Court says Obamacare is "constitutional."  See Chief Justice John Roberts actions above.  (4) The Obama Admin hires a bunch of computer incompetents to write the software code and implement a totally botched up Healthcare.gov Web Site that cost $680 million, 5 times or more over budget, and the payment routines have not even been written.  (5)  Obama shows up on national TV and lies again about virtually everything he can think of.  (6)  The incompetent people rolling out Obamacare, both at the techie computer level and the personal contract level, continue stumbling along seriously trying to make everything work.  Ha Ha, seriously?  (7)  Obama's ratings fall lower than whale shit at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean but he and his cohorts continue to push Obamacare down Americans' throats in a "ha ha serious" attempt to save everybody's health care.  (8)  The system continues to blow up as more and more people lose their health care insurance and the Obama Administration hopes and prays they win the 2014 Elections and the 2016 Elections to keep Obamacare floating all the way to Hell and back.  So which Path, national socialist A or faux serious B, do you think the Obama Administration is traveling?  Are they crafty little socialists who have planned the crash and burn of the current health care system AND the Affordable Care Act ON PURPOSE, or are they simply a bunch of dummies stumbling down the path to Nowheresville because they still haven't figured out that socialism doesn't work?  My guess is that Obama is traveling down Path A:  Screwing it up on purpose to arrive at a national socialist health care joke, plus traveling down Path B, namely they are Seriously a Bunch of Dummies in the first place for trying to choose any other path than free market capitalism.

--  Mon Nov 18, 2013  Whoa, pull up the barn floor, pour yourselves another hot cup of Rocket Java, shut up, and listen up, girl friends.  Did the United States of America just morph from a limited republic to a dictatorship overnight?  President Obama -- a month after his ridiculous heath care Web Site rolled out and crashed over the cliff, causing 6 million people to lose their current health care coverage -- strolled out in front of national TV and said, "Oh $hee-it, man, I'm so sorry for lying to you that y'all could actually keep your original health insurance policies and doctors.  Dang, and weren't you a bunch of fools to believe my crack-snorting little ass, but ya-yesss, I take full blame -- cough-cough, make that full credit -- for fumbling your health care lives on my own 1 yard line -- 'cause that's about how far my program got (99 yards to go) before it blew sky high on Oct 1, 2013.  And now I promise, again, ha ha, fool you twice, that the football game ain't over, that I will pick up this $684 million over-budget football and run toward the 2 yard line before I fumble the ball again because this game -- and I do mean "game" -- ain't over yet.  Ya-yesss, boys and girls, my little subordinate victims, I am now declaring that I can just step up onto the national stage and claim that I have the constitutional authority to change any law I desire and thus undo those portions of Congress' Affordable Care Act that I think may be inconvenient in my Obamacare Mess, for which I take full responsibility even though it's not my fault.  Double speak, double speak.  Soooo, cough-cough, and I'm not standing here naked as a Jay bird, y'all don't have to follow the original Obamacare law passed by Congress.  Follow whatever I last say on TV.  There will be no lawsuits, I promise.  Ha ha, you dumb $hits.  You don't have to give up your health care policies for a whole year 'cause, well, because I said so.  And I'm above the law.  Which law?  All the laws.  Never mind that the original law -- which I just dumped with HARDLY ANY OBJECTIONS FROM 535 MEMBERS OF CONGRESS -- says you got until Jan 1, 2014, to comply.  Forget about that law.  I just declared a new law.  And, if I feel like it, I will override the new law tomorrow, and then that law the next day, and then the following day until Hell freezes over.  Whatever I feel like because I am the CEO of America.  And we are the Borg.  We all live in one big commune.  Congress, the US Constitution and all of our current laws are now irrelevant until I say so in one of my Executive Orders.  Left, right, left, right...  In fact, I am changing the freeway speeds in all 50 states from 65 MPH to 13 1/2 MPH as of, let's say, uh, midnight tonight, OK?  Why?  To save the Borg's fuel costs and cut down on CO2 emissions on Saturdays while we're driving to our nation's fantasy football games.  US laws are now only, well, you know, like, Temporary Guidelines.  We now have only one branch of government:  the Executive Department, better known as ME, Barack Obama."  Yo-ho, yo-ho, a pirate's life for me.

--  Tue Nov 12, 2013  Howdy Idahoinians:  a whopping 100 Idahoans have signed up for Gov Butch "The RINO" Otter's state healthcare exchange.  Way to go, Butch.  We tried to tell you it was a bust and you tried to claim you were a Libertarian.  What a joke.  6 million Americans have lost their health care insurance all across the US within the last month and a half.  Less than 50,000 of the anticipated 500,000 that were expected by the Obama administration to have signed up by now have either paid for Obamacare insurance or left their shopping carts on healthcare.gov without signing up.  7 million Americans are necessary to sign up to even fund Obamacare, which looks like it ain't gonna happen, folks.  At the current rate of signing up for O-Care, it might take a few hundred years to get rolling.  Like hello, we'll all be dead by then.  Healthcare.gov R.I.P.

--  Mon Nov 11, 2013  Think about this:  The IRS, the taxing agency that has been chosen to monitor, implement and enforce our nation's new national socialist health care system with 16,000 new IRS agents, has sent over 650 income tax refunds to the same address.  This means that the programming in the IRS computer system is just as bad or worse than the computer system underlying Obamacare.  How difficult is it for the IRS programmers to write the following simple routine:  (1) sort all the IRS refund checks by address, and (2) if the current address equals the last address, flag this data item.  I mean, come on, this is simple Computer For Idiots 101A and the IRS has not implemented this type of error checking in its refund program?  So now we have to ask the question:  What sort of error checking has been implemented in the botched up Obamacare system?  None?  This system has cost the taxpayers $680 million, with an original budget estimated at $80 million.  If any private company had received an initial estimate of $80 million to create a computer system and the cost approached double, $160 million, the project would have come to a complete halt and heads would have rolled.  So what happened when the cost of Obamacare passed double and approached triple?  Nothing.  How about quadruple, $320 million?  Nothing.  How about quintuple, $400 million?  Nothing.  How about adding in the fact that the system would not be completed on time?  Nothing.  And the "project manager" and HHS Secretary Sebelius are still busy trying to "fix" whatever is wrong with their ridiculously overrun Obamacare project while Congress sits on their thumbs and says, "Oh well."  President Obama pretends everything is on schedule and it will be a great system.  Millions of citizens have already lost their current health care coverage and Obama says their health care policies were substandard and they will get better coverage under Obamacare -- if they can ever log on to sign up.  But this train wreck is just the tip of the ice berg.  Look at the IRS system, sending $4 billion to duplicate addresses.  This is the type of error checking you can expect to find in whatever the future Obamacare system ends up as, too.  And the IRS, who can't even clean up their own system, is in charge of the Obamacare system?  Just think, all we really needed to do was to dump the current health care system that the government implemented over the last 50 years, go back to the free market, and start over.  The free market is not the cause of our previous lousy health care system; but it IS the solution.  Same for the USPS, Amtrak, and all the other government bureaucracies that have intervened into the free market.  Once again, health care is not a right.  No commodities or services are rights.  Health care is a marketable commodity and if the government would get out of the way, prices would plummet, just like for all other commodities in an open market.  Obamacare doesn't need more time; it needs to be abolished. 

--  Sat Nov 02, 2013  Newsflash to all Left Liberals:  before Obamacare, the health care system operating in the US was NOT a free market system.  It was -- and has been for the last 50 years -- operating, technically speaking, in a quasi fascist economic system.  Fascism is defined as the state issuing government rules to control the means of production.  Socialism is defined as the state taking over and actually trying to run the means of production.  So, Obamacare is not replacing a previous free market health care system. Obamacare is replacing a previous fascist health care system which -- since President Lyndon Johnson intervened with his Great Society -- has been screwing up America's health care with all its governmental interventions for the last 50 years.  Obamacare is simply another variation, an extension, on our previous state collectivism.  And it, too, will fail for all the same basic economic reasons that its predecessor was failing.  Obamacare, stripping away the veil of the government acting as the robbery broker, is nothing more than one group of individuals stating that they have the right to demand that doctors and health care professionals must provide them with health care.  In other words, the rights of doctors are supposedly subservient to others who are demanding that doctors owe them their health care services as a natural right.  But this defines a master-slave relationship, American citizens being cast as the masters and doctors cast as the slaves.  In a free market system, American citizens and doctors would be voluntarily exercising their rights to choose which health care services they want to exchange.  In a free market system, nobody has a right to demand that another person must be his/her economic slave and thus must provide their services or products as a so-called right.  Medical care is, therefore, not a right.  It is simply an exchangeable service or commodity in the free market.  This is true for all services and commodities in the market, including education, cars, food, computers, etc.  Nobody's services should be somebody else's demand to receive as a right.  Otherwise, we are simply establishing a culture of slavery.  Rights are not exchangeable commodities.  Rights are individual freedoms, not commodities and services.  Freedoms such as freedom of speech, religion, association, etc. are not bought and sold commodities in a free market.  And this is where Liberals get very confused.  They first distance themselves from their robberies by using the government as their robbery brokers and then claim that they have a right to other people's commodities and services.  Thus, they create government robbery programs and give them fancy names such as The Great Society, Social Security, Medicare, The Affordable Care Act, and so on, as if it's not a robbery if they use the government to perform the robbery for them.  And the more people who commit the robbery, the less of a robbery it becomes?  The real irony is how the victims in this great government robbery scheme often fail to reason what is really going on and begin calling for the very robbery that robs them in their own profession.  Teachers and doctors do this all the time, and then wonder why their profession starts crumbling into total disarray as the government performs its robbery duties.  Hence we get monstrosities such as Leave No Child Behind, Race To The Top, and Obamacare.  The predictable end result:  civil war and The Holocaust, since, in reality, reciprocal rip-off rights can never be implemented and somebody must be blamed.  Remember, Obamacare is not about health care; it is about individual rights vs. coerced state collectivism.

--  Wed Oct 30, 2013  Lying through his teeth, President Barack Obama claimed over two dozen times, "If you like your current health care plan and doctor, I guarantee that you will be able to keep them under Obamacare."  Lied?  Yes, lied, because he already knew damn well, as far back as 2010, that some 60% to 70% of  individuals would not only lose their individual health care plans but that the cost of new health care plans would greatly increase.  This was no accident.  The President and his advisors have planned this canard for the last 4 years and were advised by both health care professionals and the IRS that individual costs would skyrocket.  While the President claimed that everybody's existing plan would be "grandfathered in," and that everybody could keep their existing plan, HHS AND the IRS issued rulings that CHANGED the definition of "grandfathered in" so that if insurance companies did anything such as change a premium or merged with another company or fed a Doggie Bon Bon to their dog, then the "grandfathered in" definition does not apply.  Hence the Obama Administration knew from the outset that virtually nobody in this category (14 million individuals) would be able to keep their existing plans, and thus begets the Big Lie.  Why did Obama and his handler Ms. Valerie Jarrett lie?  Because their REAL GOAL is for Obamacare to fail so that they can move the United States onto a government-run national socialist health care system.  And that's why this entire health care debacle is so troubling:  namely, those in charge have known all along that their ultimate goal was to move us onto a nationalized health care system, which is tantamount to institutionalizing fascism for at least one-sixth of the American economy.  Once again, as we listen to the Obamacare congressional health care hearings, we must remember that the real issue is individual rights, not the cost of the system or when will errors be corrected or any other empirical parameters.  That's like arguing during the Third Reich in Germany in the 1930s about the parameters and problems in shipping Jews off to re-education camps rather than the question of individual rights of Jews being shipped off to anywhere.  Who cares about the problems and parameters of a government program that is violating individual rights when it is the moral philosophy of the violation of individual rights that should be of major concern?  Let's face it, if the government can violate one of your rights to implement a program, then we have established the precedent for the government to violate ALL the rights of everybody to establish anything.  In other words, once the Republicans on the health care committee accept the premise that it is OK to violate the individual's right to choose in an economic exchange process, then they have lost the debate.  Accept a false premise, and you have already lost the argument.  That's -- unfortunately -- where we are today:  not arguing about individual rights but rather how best to violate said rights.  What trait for the commodity we call health care exempts it from all the basic laws of free market economics?  Does free market economics really fall apart depending upon the specific commodity or service being exchanged?  Really?  If so, then perhaps the laws of physics changes in different galaxies, too.  Wow, what a discovery: no universal rights for humans and no universal laws in physics.

--  Wed Oct 30, 2013  Surprise-a-roonie!  US Senator Diane Feinstein's hubster, Richard Blum, is the president of CRI, the real estate company that has the exclusive right to sell $19 billion worth of closed USPS buildings.  No conflict of interest?  CRI stands to rake in from 2% to 6% of the $19 billion, which may well reach a billion dollars in commissions.  Wow, don't the rich and well connected in politics just keep on keeping on.

--  Sun Oct 27, 2013  Well, well, well.  Looks like the Tea Party and other Libertarian groups can now say, "I told you so!"  The roll out of Obamacare on its online Web Site, healthcare.gov, has been a total disaster.  Millions have tried to log on.  Only a few thousand -- or less in many states -- have succeeded in traversing the computer obstacles  to obtain some kind of health insurance, mostly at a higher cost that their previous insurance.  Policies cost a lot more than citizens expected.  No, Obama, citizens did not get to keep their current insurance.  Obama lied.  And if you don't obtain health insurance by next March or whenever the Affordable Health Care law mandates, you will be "TAXED" not fined by the IRS.  The difference between a "fine" and a "tax" being the distinction by which Chief Justice of the US Supreme Court, John Roberts, ruled that Obamacare was constitutional because taxation (not a fine) is legal.  What a stretch that was: Justice Roberts had to first introduce the term "tax" into the Obamacare law in order to then rule that a "fine" could morph into a "tax."  Now that Obamacare has rolled out -- and over the cliff into nowheresville -- we have the televised spectacle of a Congressional committee trying to find out what went wrong.  Why is healthcare.gov bombing out all over the place?  Why did it cost $684 million, 5-6 times more than originally estimated?  All the project vendors working on this Healthcare Titanic are simply pointing fingers at each other or CMS -- the government entity responsible for implementing the ACA under HHS Secretary Sebelius who didn't bother to show up to this important Congressional meeting.  Meanwhile, President Obama is busy giving a news conference in the Pink Room of the While House, blabbering about how badly the US needs to grant amnesty to 20 million illegal Mexicans who he expects to vote for the Democrats in the future.  What does he care about the total train wreck of Obamacare?  He's busy buying future left Liberal votes.  Back to the congressional hearing on why Obama's healthcare.gov Web Site is a total failure, the excuses coughed up by the computer project vendors who failed -- along with CMS and HHS -- are a real hoot.  It is obvious that there was NO project management whatsoever.  The project is five times over budget.  Over $600 million dollars for an initially estimated $90 million computer project.  When asked why didn't the lead computer company inform CMS whether the project would bomb or not, a Ms. Campbell (in charge of CGI Federal) responded with, "It wasn't our responsibility to advise CMS whether the system should be a go or no-go."  Errrt, screech, halt!  Are you kidding?  It is exactly the project vendor's prime responsibility to inform the client -- CMS and HHS -- about whether the project should be implemented or not.  In fact, this should have been done long before the budget doubled, tripled, quadrupled, and quintupled.  Ms. Campbell is a total incompetent.  So is CMS, and Sec of HHS Sebelius, and President Obama for not asking a simple question:  namely, hey guys, where are we on the healthcare.gov project?  And it wasn't the prime vendor's responsibility to provide status reports?  Or Sec of HHS Sebelius' responsibility to demand status reports?  Wow, see how wonderful state collectivism works?  And if you don't sign up soon on this broken Obamacare Health Care system, the IRS will come knocking on your door and FINE -- oops, I mean TAX -- your ass.  Ironically, Obama and RINO politicians such as Sen. John McCain have asked private enterprise from Silicon Valley to show up to solve healthcare.gov's computer problems.  You know, the private sector that the government says is why they had to transfer our nation's health care system to the government in the first place.  Because the free market and private enterprise are pig pirate capitalists, right?  Now it's "help, help, help us fix our Health Care Train Wreck!"  What a contradiction.  But here's the real problem:  Obamacare is an individual rights issue, not an argument about empirical data results.  Obamacare is a violation of your individual right to choose which services or commodities you want to trade or exchange or purchase in a free and open market.  This issue is not about how much Obamacare costs or whether it was implemented on time or what the parameters of the online system will be.  And now we have the spectacle of Republican and Democrat politicians screaming at each other on nationalized TV about the empirical results of the online system while virtually NOBODY is zeroing in on the real issue:  namely, Obamacare must be abolished not because the rollout of healthcare.gov doesn't work, but because it is a violation of your individual rights.  Note:  Obamacare is not "settled law."  It is what is called "pretended law."  Pretended law remains in force until it is challenged and overturned by -- in this case -- another Supreme Court judgment or via the US Congress or via the people.  There are various constitutional appeals winding their way through the court system today that could easily overturn Obamacare, one of which is that the "fee" clause which Justice Roberts relied upon to redefine as a "tax" did not originate in the US House.  It originated in the US Senate.  This is a violation of the Constitution's Origination Clause, which rightfully belongs to the US House, not the US Senate.  The Origination Clause states that fees, including taxes, must originate in the House, not the Senate.  The US Supreme Court could overturn ALL of Obamacare on this one issue alone.  Let's hope this happens.

-- Sun Oct 13, 2013  What are we learning from the so-called "government shutdown?"  First, the government is not shutting down.  Taxes are still being collected and millions of government workers are still showing up to work.  The Federal Reserve is still printing up billions of fake dollars, still backed by nothing, and the banks are making billions of dollars in interest on the national debt.  So what's really happening?  What are we finding out?  For one thing, we are discovering how the Obama administration is using the "government shutdown" -- which Obama and the Democrats in the US Senate have caused -- to purposely hurt as many Americans as possible in order to further their political goals:  namely, to shove a national socialist health care system down everybody's throats.  There are numerous examples on national TV showing how President Obama and US Attorney General Eric Holder have, for instance, called out the police or national guard to erect blockades to monuments in Washington DC at which there were no previous barriers to tourists.  This is spiteful and highly political.  We have discovered that out of 16,000 EPA workers, some 15,000 have been furloughed or deemed non-essential.  This means that some 99% of the EPA should not even be employed as government bureaucrats and begs the question: What the hell are these EPA 'workers' doing at 'work' everyday besides pushing paper in circles and destroying the private market with tons and tons of ridiculous roadblocks?  The assumption that free market capitalism is the destroyer of the environment -- and thus the presumed need for 16,000 Government Greenie Cops -- does not bear out in either economic theory or empirical data.  Free market corporations must respond to the consumer and it is in their best interests to do everything they can to protect the environment.  Or they don't sell products.  And if they don't sell products, they go bankrupt.  Whenever free market companies violate the environment, it is usually due to previous government regulations that allowed or even encouraged them to do so and more likely than not were passed by lobbyists bribing Congress.  That is not the free market.  We already have enough laws vis a vis private property rights to prosecute those companies or individuals who pollute the environment.  It is governmental intervention on behalf of corporate welfare lobbyists that then encourage the Greenie Cops to create another governmental entity -- the EPA -- to try and monitor what the government previously allowed to happen to the environment illegally in the first place.  It's the left Liberal vicious economic circle.  This does not describe free market capitalism; it is a description of state collectivism.  Dump the special interest legislation that allows companies to violate the environment and then you do not need an EPA.  In truth, the EPA -- as well as most all other governmental state protectionist bureaucracies -- were not created to protect the individual or the environment.  They were created to allow one company to "legally" beat up on their competitors in the market.  Left Liberal politicians know this; the American public has yet to figure it out.  So what else have we learned about America's budget during this "government shutdown?"  For one thing, we have learned that 25% of the SSI budget -- Social Security "disability" recipients, not the old folks receiving retirement benefits -- is fraudulent.  Hundreds of billions of dollars in the SSI portion of the Social Security budget is being distributed to unscrupulous doctors and lawyers submitting phony claims.  If the Tea Party Republicans in the US House had not been submitting the budget piece-meal to the US Senate, nobody would have paid attention to this.  Which also begs the bigger question:  how many other portions of the US budget -- now up to $7 trillion in debt, doubled from $3 trillion by the Obama administration alone within the last 5 years -- is chock full of fraud and waste?  The best thing we can do during this "government shutdown" is to force Congress to review and cut back on every line item in the US budget.  You know, just like you have to do with your own personal budget every year.  Unless of course you have a monetary printing press in your basement and can "legally" crank up $3 trillion at the drop of a hat.

--  Fri Sep 13, 2013  So here it is Friday the 13th, a week after Pencil Prick Obama threatened to bomb the crap out of Syria on the alleged basis that Syria's government gassed 1,400 Syrians, including 400 kids.  Yeah, that makes a lot of sense:  the US bombs Syria because Syria bombed Syria.  Uh huh.  A week later and now Americans wake up to discover that Russian President Vladimir Putin -- ex Chief of the USSR KGB -- is now our de facto US President, calling all the US foreign policy and military shots with an Op Ed in the New York Times, ending the NYT article by criticizing ex President Barack Obama's reference to "American Exceptionalism" and "difference" by Putin stating that all nations are different, rich or poor, at different levels toward democracy, that nobody is exceptional and that God created all men equal.  Whoa, like, who's been reading the Federalist Papers, the US Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the US Declaration of Independence lately?  Certainly not former President Barack Obama.  So Putin is now leading America's foreign policy in the Middle East by setting up a Let's Dump Syria's Chemical Weapons council with US Sec of State John Kerry and Syrian reps and not be so hasty to bomb the dukie out of Syria.  Especially since there exists a lot of proof that it was Da Rebels -- Al Qaeda, Al Nusra, the Muslim Brotherhood, and all the other usual suspects from Saudi Arabian jails -- who gassed the Syrians, not Assad's government forces.  The point is:  Who's in charge here?  Most Americans and others are glad that even an ex KGB agent from Russia has the foresight and cajones to prevent more bombing in the Middle East and try to settle the problem through peaceful negotiations.  Anybody claiming that we shouldn't trust an ex KGB Chief from Russia is right but we must not fall into the judicial trap that a prostitute cannot be a credible witness to a murder.  Of course she can.  Just like Vladimir Putin could be -- that's a big COULD be -- a credible negotiator for at least a temporary peace in the Middle East.  The best of all cases is that neither the US or Russia should be playing war games in the Middle East.  But everybody wants cheap Mid East oil and the central bankers want a Petro Dollar monopoly and so... capitalism breaks down and altruistic state collectivism takes over... blaming free market capitalism for what US fascism and Russian communism (now a straight out dictatorship) are foisting on everybody all over the globe.  One thing in this equation seems true:  Obama is eager to go to war in Syria in order to -- as Wayne Allen Root reports on our Home Page today -- cover up his massive domestic economic failures.  If nobody's employed, draft them into the military and ship them off to the Middle East in yet another war manufactured by the US.

--  Tue Sep 10, 2013  What a long week of lies, lies and more lies!  On Aug 21, somebody gassed 1,400 Syrians in Damascus, killing some 400 women and children, more or less.  Sec of State John Kerry and President Obama blamed the Syrian Assad regime for gassing their own people.  Other sources claim that US intelligence secretly conspired with Turkey and Al Qaeda rebels and planned the whole thing out:  meeting with each other, arming Al Qaeda with US weapons and chemical weapons from Saudi Arabia, and telling the rebels that they can take action after a "significant event" occurs -- presumably the gas attack which would be blamed on the Assad government -- and then a pre-planned bombing strike by the Americans.  What the hell is going on here?  It appears that this entire chemical gassing warfare in Syria was meticulously pre-planned by US intelligence and the Muslim Brotherhood to overthrow the Assad government.  And all of this ties in with what Sec of State John Kerry and President Obama claim was a chemical attack by Syria's Bashar Assad and the call by Kerry and Obama to immediately launch air strikes against Syria.  Sounds like everybody was reading from the same script.  The only thing that stopped the immediate strike by the US was Obama who thought it would be in his best political interests to first confer with the US Congress before bombing Syria.  That action may well have backfired on his little conspiratorial butt since Senators such as Rand Paul raked Sec of State Kerry over the coals and cited the US Constitution and Federalist Papers which state in no uncertain terms that it is Congress who has the sole authority to authorize war, not the Executive Department.  And the US House appears to be ready to vote NO on any strike by the US.  In short, once again, just like in the Benghazi fiasco, President Obama appears to be involved in clandestine activities supporting the Muslim Brotherhood and attempting to use the US military to overthrow another regime in the Middle East.  Whose side are we on?  Why are we even choosing up sides?  What US national interests are threatened by whoever runs whichever of the ridiculous dictatorships in the Middle East?  Who's pulling Obama's muppet strings:  the central bankers protecting their Petro Dollar Deal and the OPEC Oil Monopoly, or rogue CIA agents, or is Obama pulling his own religious muppet strings and aligning himself with the Muslim Brotherhood against America?  Reports from journalists in the Middle East suggest that Obama is up to his neck in conspiring with the Al Qaeda rebels to gas their own people in Syria, blame it on Assad, and then send in the US air force.  The Russians and others say they have proof of the above conspiracy, or at least that Bashar Assad did not do the gassing.  Russian President Vladimir Putin has proposed that Syria turn over any chemical weapons it may have to the UN and destroy the chemicals, while Obama is slated to lie to Americans on national TV tonight about the entire affair.  Putin has called Sec of State John Kerry and Obama "liars" because, says Putin, they both know that Assad did not launch chemical weapons against his own people and that the US CIA and Muslim Brotherhood (Al Qaeda) had set this entire conspiracy up from the beginning.  Imagine that:  the Obama administration, lying to us... again... and again... and... . Things have really gotten out of control when Americans, 90% of whom support NO BOMBING of Syria, believe ex-KGB chief Vladmir Putin over our own American President Barack Obama because Obama has lied to us about everything so often over the last 5-6 years (taxes, Obamacare, and the Middle East wars) that we don't believe a word he says about anything.  Never mind about a regime change in Syria; how about a regime change in the United States!

--  Thur Sep 05, 2013  Get this!  Syrian rebels in the Damascus suburb of Ghouta have admitted to Associated Press correspondent Dale Gavlak that they were responsible for last week's chemical weapons incident which western powers have blamed on Bashar Al-Assad's forces, revealing that the casualties were the result of an accident caused by rebels mishandling chemical weapons provided to them by Saudi Arabia.  If this is true, that means that US Sec of State John Kerry and President Barack Obama are lying on purpose in order to drag the US into another extended war in the Middle East.  It means that either we have really really bad intelligence or Kerry and Obama have made it all up regarding WHO launched the chemical bombs, but not necessarily the results of how many died and by what type of chemicals.  The Obama administration has lied to the American people on so many domestic and foreign issues -- witness the Benghazi lie in which our Libyan ambassador was killed with three others and they blamed it on an anti-Muhammed "video" produced in Hollywood -- that the big question is why should we believe Sec of State Kerry and President Obama about Syria?  Is the US about to jump into a war based upon lies by the Obama administration?  And look how rapidly our US Congressmen and women are to believe anything and ready to launch missiles into Syria.

--  Wed Sep 04, 2013  Whoa, girl friends, here's an interesting scenario regarding the US attacking Syria on the alleged allegation that the Syrian govt of Assad launched chemical bombs on its own population.  What if Obama and his inner circle have conspired with the Muslim Brotherhood -- Al Nusra and Al Qaeda -- to launch chemical warfare against their own people and then blame the Assad regime in order to trick the American people (and the world) into invading Syria to replace Assad with the Muslim Brotherhood?  Think about Bengahzi.  Obama and Sec of State Hillary Clinton were trying to buy back 200 SAMs from Al Qaeda because they made a mistake and sold them to the wrong bad guys.  Then, in order to cover it all up, Obama and Clinton lied about the Benghazi attack and murders of our ambassador and aides, blaming it all on some phony anti-Mohammed movie produced by some Loony Toon in Hollywood.  Obama and Clinton have a long history of lying about everything, so why should we believe that it was Assad who launched the chemical bombs in Syria?  We don't even know if Obama is a citizen eligible to be President of the United States.  And he has lied up the yin yang about how Obamacare, taxes and medical care.  So what if Obama is really a Manchurian Candidate for the Muslim Brotherhood?  He could be a Trojan Horse.  Just review his entire background with Rev Wright and his other socialist teachers throughout his entire life.  It looks like the Pied Piper of America may be playing Americans like a Stradivarius violin.  I'm not saying this scenario is true.  This is only a speculation.  Some may claim it's just a "conspiracy theory" -- redefining this term as something that is not true while ignoring the fact that there have been many conspiracies all throughout history and they were true conspiracies.  This scenario may indeed be a conspiracy fact.  Time will tell.  Meanwhile, get ready for the possible start of WW III.  By the way, dontcha just love the way President Obama goes onto national TV and babbles about dire consequences if Syria crosses the "red line" of launching chemical weapons and then claims at the G20 conference in Sweden that he did not draw a "red line," the rest of the world drew a "red line."  Right.  He doesn't even have the cajones to stand up and take responsibility for his own speech and actions... blaming everybody else except himself in case he fails.

--  Tue Sep 03, 2013  To bomb Syria, or not to bomb Syria, that is the question.  Which branch of the US government has the authority to declare "war?"  The Executive branch or the Legislative branch?  Sec of State John Kerry says, "The Executive branch."  Senator Rand Paul says, "The Federalist Papers and the US Constitution clearly state that the power to declare war is vested in the Legislative branch... and it doesn't matter whether it's just a little bomb, a big bomb, or boots on the ground."  Nobody in the Let's Go To War Camp has stated the exact military objective of bombing Syria.  Nobody in the Let's Go To War Camp can say with any confidence that bombing Syria will cut the future chance of more war or increase the future chance of more war.  So what are the answers to the above?  Well, how did we get to the point we are today in the Middle East?  Easy peazy lemon squeazy:  We allowed the central bankers to take America off the gold standard, force us onto a fiat paper currency standard, create the Petro Dollar Deal with countries in the Middle East, and use the US military to enforce their cabal.  Money and oil, that is why we are in the Middle East.  The US has all the domestic oil it needs, all kinds of free energy from the vacuum sources that it could develop, and a free market opportunity in which we should be using a hard commodity standard for our value of economic exchange.  But as long as the average American has no clue what real money is, knows nothing about the central bankers and their Petro Dollar Deal, and continues to fall for choosing up fake sides in our manufactured wars all over the globe, then America will participate in all kinds of meaningless wars overseas.  Now, why specifically are we possibly going to go to war in Syria soon?  Because our stupid ignoramus of a president -- Barack Obama, the Pied Piper of our left Liberal youth -- grabbed his balls like a rap singer on stage, stuck out his thumb and pinkie finger and said to the world, "Oh yeah, Syria, cross this 'red line' using chemical weapons and see what happens."  So Syria gassed its people months ago.  And Obama did nothing.  So Syria gassed its people again.  And Obama did nothing.  So Syria gassed its people last week and Obama said, "Well, oh yeah?  Let's go ask Congress what to do so they will get the blame instead of me."  And that's exactly where we are today:  the Foreign Relations Committee of the US Congress is arguing back and forth whether America should drop a bomb, launch missiles, use squirt guns, or do nothing or, as former Gov Sarah Palin said, "just let Allah sort it out."  As long as the cental bankers keep on keeping on with their Petro Dollar Deal, there is no solution:  either foreign or domestic.  The root cause is a non-understanding by most people of the Law of Identity and the Laws of Cause and Effect, esp. with regard to what constitutes monetary "value."  And, more importantly, who has the right to determine their own money:  the bankers or the individual?  If the US attacks Syria, look for the start of WW III.  By the way, the Sec of State, John Kerry, is wrong in stating that no other country except Syria and Iraq have used chemical warfare to gas their people.  What does Kerry think Germany's Third Reich was doing when it shipped millions of Jews and others into the gas chambers in WW II?  Does it matter whether the govt drops a gas bomb on you downtown or trucks you into a gas chamber?  And does it matter whether the govt shoots you (120,000 Syrians) or gases you (1,500 Syrians)?  So, the Sec of State should at least get his facts straight before babbling in his typical Double Speak before Congress on national TV.  Well, Obama, here's another nice mess you've gotten us into.

--  Thur Aug 29, 2013  So here's the Big Question, and I'm directing this to those who are following around (like little puppy dogs) our off-planet friends (the Plejaren) living on Erra in another dimension that is a fraction of a second off from our own vibrational time frame.  Those who don't know what I'm referring to can log onto www.figu.org and catch up to the fact that we are not alone in the Milky Way Galaxy, much less the entire universe.  Look it up; I don't have the time and space -- no pun intended -- to educate you here or now about this subject.  Anyway, the Big Question is: who is worse, a president such as George Bush who knowingly lies to us and pulls off a lot of stunts for his military industrial complex and banking buddies to further enrich themselves OR a naive president WITH SUPPOSEDLY "GOOD INTENTIONS" who stupidly leads us down an economic path of total altruistic state collectivism -- let's just call it socialism -- that must inexorably end up in economic destruction and World War III?  Neither is good but the point is:  "good intentions" by ignoramus presidents is not better than "bad intentions" by bad presidents.  They're the same:  bad.  The real problem that I have noticed from the Plejaren and Billy Meier and their lock-step followers is that NONE of them in this intellectual camp understand the basics of simple economics and thus think that just because somebody has "good intentions," they are OK guys and will become a suitable president.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  An leader who is an idiot is exactly that:  an idiot.  And he will lead you over the cliff just as surely as a smart bad buy will.  This brings up a very interesting phenomenon:  ET humans -- of which there are some estimated 7.5 million different races in the Milky Way alone, according to the Plejaren -- have not evolved equally in every area of intellectual endeavor such as physics, chem, bio, and especially economics so that they have these areas fully and equally integrated into their intelligence.  By "equal" I do not mean individuals, I mean "equal" areas of intellectual endeavor.  Thus, one ends up with ET humans who can jump to hyper light speed, transverse what we call "time" whether it's a "dimension" or not, but don't understand how basic economics works.  Thus they do not comprehend the difference -- and its ultimate economic effects -- caused by, for example, using fiat currency vs. hard commodity money.  They do not understand how prices -- which are simply qualitative subjective value judgments by individuals -- can only be formed in a free market and once that market is destroyed, say by central bankers counterfeiting the money supply, the economy must necessarily go into self-destruct mode.  Why don't the ET Plejaren understand this?  After all, they are some 18,000 years ahead of us in physics, medicine, astronomy, etc.?  Look at it this way.  Like us, they are living in a culture that took a long time to build up and the current Plejaren did not invent their past discoveries any more than our current Earth humans invented the internal combustion engine, light bulbs or computers.  Yes, the people on Earth today know how to drive a car, use a cell phone, and take antibiotics but they did not invent them.  Similarly, most Plejaren today, like most Earth humans, have no clue about how economics really works.  THEREFORE, -- and this is a big THEREFORE -- the Plejaren make the mistake that all you have to do is WANT to make the economy "prosperous" and it will happen.  That's why in the 1930's and 40's the Plejaren mistakenly gave (via telepathic vibrations) the plans to build beam ships to scientists in Germany's Third Reich and then had to cancel those plans and beam ships when they discovered that the Nazis weren't the "good guys" they thought they were.  Amazingly, the Plejaren were not aware that national socialism must inexorably lead to the Holocaust and the economic destruction that it did.  Thus, today, the Plejaren continue to make the same mistake and for the same basic reason.  They think that US president Barack Obama's "good intentions" are all that it takes to lead America and the world out of its current Recession/Depression.  If they understood anything about basic Austrian free market economics, they would not come to that conclusion.  Similarly, if I could transport 10,000 Egyptian children from 5,000 years ago and raise them in today's US economy, they would all learn how to use iPhones, drive a car, and turn on the TV.  But that does not mean they understand how these inventions work and they would not necessarily be the ones who invent anything new.  Same for the Plejaren.  They are living off previously invented technology and very few of them, if any, especially hard physical scientists, understand anything about praxeology (human action) which is the subject of free market economics.  Conclusion:  thanks to the Plejaren for all the physics and time travel info and saving the planet Earth from other ET "invaders" in the past -- which they claim and I believe them -- but I caution you all from Erra to please bone up on the basic laws of econ.  Those who just live and breathe every word from the contact notes of the Plejaren should learn to question intellectual issues using your own brain and stop just re-hashing what you heard or think you heard from our ET friends.  Do I question the Plejaren's existence?  No.  Do I question how fast they can travel through the universe?  No.  Do I question how they farm their agriculture or build beam ships?  No.  Do I question their knowledge in every area of endeavor?  Yes.  Especially basic economics.  And that's the name of that tune.  They claim that they support Obama and that he is one of the best presidents the US has ever had -- or at least that's what Earth humans have translated from the Plejaren.  Obama may have "good intentions."  But, as we have stated above, that is not the issue.  The road to hell is paved with good intentions.  We are concerned with rational results from rational intentions.  Obama is obviously an ignoramus -- especially in economics -- whose strings are being pulled by other ignoramuses.  The road to Hell is paved with "good intentions," and that's exactly where Obama and his "handlers" are leading us: straight to economic Hell and thus to WW III.  Good thing the Plejaren are forbidden by the Galaxy's High Council to not overly "influence" the direction that Earth humans are going; otherwise, they might think it would be great to implement a world state collectivist government on planet Earth.  Then again, we could do with more intellectual "influences" from the Plejaren regarding free market capitalism as a basis for more rational social-political-economics.  Unless of course, we are supposed to go through Hell in order to get to "Heaven" -- rational thought, not a location in Earth major religions -- and Obama is just playing his part?  The Plejaren may be 18,000 years ahead of us in technology but they appear to be about 200 years behind us -- at least Libertarians -- in economics.

--  Thur Aug 29, 2013  As Rep Ron Paul said, "Let me get this straight:  we're going to attack Syria because Syria attacked Syria?"

--  Tue Aug 27, 2013  Time for the start of WW III?  Syria's president, Bozo Assad, launched chemical weapons against his own people last week, killing hundreds of innocent men, women, and children.  So what else is new in the Middle East?  Like nobody ever did this in WW II or Vietnam, right?  Syrian rebels fighting to overthrow Assad, are comprised of Hezbollah, the Muslim Brotherhood, Al Qaeda, the Taliban, and other "Spring Revolutionaries" that President Obama says will bring peace and prosperity to the Middle East.  Yeah, right.  Unfortunately for President Obama, he has to appear like he knows how to run the US military and so he is moving at least 4 aircraft carriers and other US war ships into the Mediterranean, pretending to do what, shoot up Assad, launch a couple of missiles, or who knows what?  US politicians have dragged the US into a no-win position in the Middle East.  The entire region is playing out a religious civil war and US politicians and central bankers have forced us into military conflicts all over that area, choosing up sides, financing idiot dictators, then deposing them when they don't work out and choosing up new idiot dictators and sending them tons of hyper-inflated US dollars and military equipment.  That's how World Wars start.  Sticking your nose into other nations' business just like Woodrow Wilson did in WW I and FDR did in WW II (at the behest of the central bankers so they could issue more war bonds).  It is now a known fact that FDR purposely pushed the Japanese into attacking Pearl Harbor by cutting off their access to fuel from Indonesia and elsewhere.  Now it's President Obama's turn.  What will he do?  Launch a couple of missiles and kill more women and children in Syria?  Commit the US to sending ground troops?  Why don't we just launch a few nukes over the entire Middle East, wipe 'em all out, and then tell any survivors they have to become Baptists, Mormons, Muslims, or Buddhists?  Like it's any of our business.  US foreign policy is so stupid it is incredible.  And guess what?  You get to pay for it.

--  Sun Aug 11, 2013  Entrepreneur Donald Trump said it best:

"Let me get this straight:

We're going to be "gifted" with a health care plan we are forced to purchase and fined if we don't, which purportedly covers at least ten million more people, without adding a single new doctor, but provides for 16,000 new IRS agents, written by a committee whose chairman says he doesn't understand it, passed by a Congress that didn't read it but exempted themselves from it, and signed by a President who smokes, with funding administered by a treasury chief who didn't pay his taxes, for which we'll be taxed for four years before any benefits take effect, by a government which has already bankrupted Social Security and Medicare, all to be overseen by a surgeon general who is obese, and financed by a country that's broke!!!!!"

--  Sun Jul 28, 2013  "Phony scandals?"  Really?  President Obama says all of the recent scandals involving him, Sec of State Hillary Clinton, the NSA gathering all of our communications, and the IRS hassling targeted political opponents of the President are "phony."  Our ambassador to Libya and three others were murdered because the current administration was running guns to our enemies, the IRS targeted Tea Partiers and GOP groups denying them equal tax exempt status as they granted to Democrats, the IRS grabbed all the AP reporter files illegally obtained in a raid of AP Headquarters, the NSA has way way overshot its mandate to protect us from foreign enemies and is now conducting surveillances against American citizens without due process.  ObamaCare -- the non-affordable health care debacle -- is a train wreck in the process of crashing off the rails NOW, not next year, but right NOW.  Even the IRS workers and the unions who voted for Obama don't want Obamacare.  And when Americans want to redress their grievances against President Obama and his warmed-over version of socialism that has never succeeded at any time in the last 100 years, Obama has the nerve to stand up on national TV and claim that everybody complaining about his constant stomping on our individual rights is just making up scandals that didn't really happen.  I'm wondering who Obama thinks he is?  Is he really stupid enough to believe that one man -- mainly him -- can and should "manage" every aspect of every exchange in the free market?  He knows how much we should save, how much we should earn, who we can exchange with, what we should eat, the list goes on and on?  By what right, by what authority does he strip us of our liberties and suggest that he knows what's best for us?  When Obama says that someone rich like Bill Gates earns too much money, and thus wants to limit Gates' income, it is not Gates that he is attacking.  It's the consumer who volunteered to pay for whatever computer systems that Bill Gates is selling.  By what authority does President Obama claim that it's his right to prohibit American individuals to choose what products they want to purchase?  It is not the rich that Obama is after; it's you and me.  Bill Gates can't make us buy his products.  So it's you and me that Obama wants to control, not Bill Gates, not the rich.  Of course, Obama and the First Lady don't think the rules apply to them because they're spending your tax money and the Federal Reserve's Funny Money like there is no tomorrow.  In short, President Obama and his administration are nothing but highway robbers, stealing from you and me while pretending to be "public servants," saving us from the rich capitalists and rendering some sort of public service for us.  All he needs is the sanction of his victims, and he receives that by tricking most Americans into choosing up fake political sides in his giant political football game and claiming that his opponents are just making up "phony scandals."  Meanwhile, one Ambassador and three assistants are dead, Conservatives and Libertarians are targeted by the IRS, the NSA is reading your mail, and Obama is busy playing golf and hosting rock n roll groups at the White House.  The President is way way out of touch with reality and with the American people.  Can anybody spell IMPEACHMENT?

--  Thur Jul 25, 2013  TV commentator Bill O'Reilly jumped up and down in his "Talking Points" the other day and claimed that the MAIN CAUSE of race problems in America are due to "lack of family" in the black community.  He then went on to bloviate and pontificate via all related disconnected thought globs on this theme.  And, of course, since he did not define his premises, he popped up with wrong conclusions.  So let's start at the beginning.  Lack of family is not the cause of race problems in America; it is a symptom. The root cause is America's moral philosophy of altruistic state collectivism and thus the implementation of the welfare state that subsidizes bad behavior on the part of young black women in the ghettos they are "paid" by the government to live in. The problem is not drugs, as it was not alcohol during Prohibition in the early 1900s. The commodity in question is never the problem; it is how we treat that commodity and remove it from the free market that is the problem.  As long as we treat drugs like alcohol during Prohibition, we will get the same results for young black males as we had with Al Capone and the gangsters of that era.  Should individuals be responsible for their own behavior?  Of course they should.  And we don't need the government -- which means Americans in general through direct taxation or allowing the Federal Reserve to do it with Funny Money -- subsidizing people's bad behavior and then complaining when they act bad.  The solution is LESS govt intervention. The Welfare State, which is socialism on the installment plan, is the problem. The rest are symptoms.  The root cause, as stated above, is our American pseudo-intellectuals' gift to their nation: altruistic state collectivism.

--  Mon Jul 22, 2013  Have you seen the recent video entitled:  The Trayvon Martin Case: The Lynching of Journalism?  It explains a lot about the Martin/Zimmerman case that we have not heard from the majority left Liberal news media. But there is something far worse.

The most disgusting aspect of this Trayvon Martin/Zimmerman issue is that President Obama has now clearly revealed on national TV that he does not believe in the rule of law but rather in what Ayn Rand would call: the rule of tribal collectivism. In Obama's case, this means the color of one's skin. Which means racism. Barack Obama wants to replace and overturn the already determined jury verdict by an objective court system with an appeal to state collectivist race riots in the streets. That is, he wants to replace objective law with subjective Majority Rule: i.e. a lynch mob based solely on the color of one's skin and upon real or imagined historical -- but unrelated -- racial transgressions. In US jurisprudence, the sons are not responsible for the transgressions of the fathers. Individuals are only responsible for their own actions, not the actions of their forefathers or, worse, the actions of somebody with the same skin color.

In effect, what President Obama has made perfectly clear to everybody in the world is that he is a blatant racist who believes not in the Rule of Objective Law, not in the concepts of right and wrong, not in inherent individual rights, but rather he believes -- and is pushing legislation and EOs upon these beliefs -- in Majority Rule of the Mob, of The Tribe as defined by skin color or the shape of one's nose or whichever Thugs happen to have the most guns and are currently in power. Obama's credo is Might Makes Right, and that is why he is showing up on national TV to appeal to the state collectivist racists in TV Land, whether black or white Liberals on their own little Guilt Trip, to replace the Rule of Law with race riots in the street as the new valid form of law in America. Obama is, in effect, attempting to overturn the concepts of objective social-political-economics embedded in the US Constitution, Federalist Papers, and Bill of Rights which are based upon inalienable rights of the INDIVIDUAL with Obama's warmed-over Marxist principles of state collectivism and Mob Rule. Your allegiance, according to Obama, must be to the color of your skin, not inherent individual rights and freedoms. This same mentality is responsible for ObamaCare and all the other legislation and Executive Orders that Obama and his socialist Goons in the Government are trying to shove down everybody's throats in America.

Obama has committed a far worse crime than Trayvon Martin. He has lent the power and prestige of the Executive Branch of government to a concept so evil that the last time we saw such an outrage it expressed itself as The Holocaust in in Germany in WW II. What Trayvon Martin did was peanuts compared to what President Obama just did. And Obama is a product of Harvard Law School? So much for intellectualism in America's academia today.

The real issue at stake here is: individual rights vs. state collectivism. George Zimmerman represents individual rights. Trayvon Martin represents a deranged druggie tripping out on the drug concoction called "Lean." But the worst part is President Barack Obama, who represents racist state collectivism in the highest political office in our country.

--  Sun Jul 07, 2013  This week the Wall Street Journal apologized to its readers for not being hard enough with their criticisms of ObamaCare.  They now acknowledge what Libertarians knew all along:  ObamaCare is a huge economic and statist train wreck that is running off the tracks and over the financial cliff.  I could say the same thing about the WSJ's lack of criticism in general about all forms of governmental intervention into the free market.  Just to show how inconsistent and unprincipled the editors at the Journal are, they state in the same issue how wonderful it would be if the US continues to send $1.3 Billion in tax money as weapons and aid to the new government of Egypt after the Egyptian military just won a coup d'etat against the democratically- elected Morsi government.  The Morsi Islamos were voted in after last year's overthrow of Egypt's previous Hasni, Horni or whoever government.   So what we got now in Egypt is the people -- supposedly through the military -- have dumped an Islamic church/state government and the Muslim brotherhood is rather ticked off about it.  And we're supposed to continue sending weapons to the Taliban, Al Qaeda, and the Muslim Brotherhood so they can blow our US military personnel's brains out in all the adjacent wars going on all over the Middle East.  Ain't that smart!  The US has a great military but they are being used all wrong, namely for various idiotic interventionist purposes to support the OPEC oil monopoly which is fueled -- no pun intended -- by our central bank's Petrol Dollar Deal.  What complex webs of deceit the state protectionists weave in order to grab off power and exploit what's left of the free market.  And that's what the editors of the WSJ continue to NOT understand.  For the same free market reasons that the WSJ should rail against ObamaCare, they should rail against US intervening in all areas of the market, including the Middle East and all the "manufactured" wars going on over there.  Changing the commodity intervened upon doth not the basic laws of economics changeth.  The best thing the US Congress could do -- or the President for that matter -- is to send the Egyptians a copy of the US Constitution.  Send one to the editors at the WSJ too.  Hell, these days, we don't even do that for American school children.  Perhaps this latter explains the former.

--  Sun Jun 30, 2013  Is the climate on Earth changing?  You bet.  Is it due to overpopulation?  Much of it is.  BUT... should that make it a GOP vs. left Liberal political issue?  Absolutely not.  Does the existence of climate change mean that President Barack Obama should take over the entire economy, issue Executive Orders to intervene into what's left of the free market, our individual freedoms, and private property rights on a pretext of saving us all?  Nope.  So what should we do?  How about allowing individuals to voluntarily exchange ideas, services, and commodities with each other in a free and unfettered market in order to solve all the various climate change and overpopulation issues?  For example, how about educating people to the fact that we could control our overpopulation with voluntary methods such as couples only having one child every 7 years with a maximum of two children per couple.  Some would, some wouldn't.  That's their choice.  Peer pressure might convince them.  Government mandates, that's another tricky issue.  Having 2 children maximum with a 7 year interval would greatly slow down our population explosion.  And thus cut down on over-fishing of our oceans, polluting of our land and waterways, cut down on air pollution, etc.  The last thing we need is to implement a centrally-managed government control of everybody's lives and the free market.  The EPA is a joke.  It exists for Company A to "legally" beat up on Company B or for one group to control others in a political power play.  Selling "Carbon Credits" is the most ridiculous economic idea since Karl Marx's socialist bull$hit.  It was not freedom and free market capitalism that caused our overpopulation and climate changes, although Liberals re-writing their revisionist history want to convince you that it was.  It was, and still is, governmental intervention and mis-management of our planet by interventionist politicians -- especially in socialist nations -- that have brought us to the brink of our current climate changes, overpopulation, and financial catastrophes.  The major religions and socialist nations -- except China -- are gung-ho to increase their populations for more cannon fodder to take over the world.  In freedom, we have historically overcome all sorts of pollution and implemented proper management of the planet.  Under governmental intervention -- which is created by politicians to allow their friends and buddies to gain advantages over their competition in the market -- we have totally ruined many areas on Earth.  Unfortunately, the current ideology being put forth by the majority political parties blame freedom, private property rights, and free market capitalism for all of the ills on our planet, and therefore, we are simply getting more of the same every year with more and more interventionist legislation.  More governments are taking over EVERY aspect of the market, EVERY aspect of our private lives, and even in once free USA, the President and majority Democrats are simply issuing illegal Executive Orders allowing our illegal President to strip us of our freedoms and force us into involuntary servitude in order to save ourselves from ourselves.  From health care to education, from communications to food stamps, from housing to the determination of our medium of economic exchange and interest rates, the central government is hell bent on telling us what to do, when to do it, and arresting those who spill the beans about the fact that the Feds are spying on EVERY aspect of our lives.  Climate change is real.  Overpopulation is real.  But the solution is not more government.  The solution is to use our brains, use our logic, think rationally, and the only way to do that is to allow us to live in a voluntary free market.  Those who THINK they are gaining security by sacrificing their liberties are fools.  But by the time they figure out what freedoms they have lost, it will be too late.  Wake up, folks.  Your freedoms are rapidly slipping through your fingers.  20,000 pages of ObamaCare, larger than the IRS pages, 17,000 additional IRS agents to "MONITOR" ObamaCare, $20,000 average cost per family for 2014 health care costs.  If this continues, the US will be absolutely bankrupt and you will be living in total tyranny.  The economy is now running over the cliff and you will soon be living in Atlas Shrugged.  We are half way there already.  All because you voluntarily gave up your rights and freedoms to the government.  It's called:  obtaining the sanction of the victim.  That would be you, if you let it happen.  Your choice.

--  Thur Jun 27, 2013  Are you sitting around wondering why the futures prices of precious metals and stocks -- gold and silver -- are collapsing around your feet faster than a hooker's g-string in a hotel room at a Las Vegas convention?  I'm not.  But just in case, here's the real skinny.  The major central banks of the world whose stocks are owned 100% by the major gansta bankstas such as Goldman Sucks, JP Morgan, et al. have gone naked shorts on us.  What does that mean?  It means the banks are shorting MORE paper gold and silver than the amount of physical gold and silver in existence in an entire year's production of said precious metals.  Which, if a real shorts recording institution existed in the Commodities Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) -- to balance and reconcile the true physical amount of precious metals being shorted against the amount of paper being shorted -- then this huge naked shorts position could never occur.  But the CFTC and the SEC and the central bankers and the central bank owners of the Federal Reserve and the European Central Bank are setting themselves up for a humongous PAY DAY as they are going longggg on precious metals pretty soon to rake in the huge jump in precious metals prices that are about to happen.  How do we know?  Because the central banks -- the Fed Reserve and ECB -- are still printing up hundreds of billions of dollars and Euros in inflated paper and plastic.  No banks are holding back.  This is another brilliant bank robbery of the citizens of the world as the bankers set the suckers up twice:  naked shorts first, and then gobbling up all precious metals and precious metals stocks at fire sale prices whenever they determine they've made enough on their naked shorts.  So what should you do?  Buy precious metals and stocks when there's blood running in the streets.  Is there blood running in the streets yet?  I don't know but let's all sing with the central bankers, "Yo-ho, yo-ho, a pirate's life for me."

--  Wed Jun 26, 2013  Whoa, girl friends, pull up the barn floor, shut up, listen up, and pour yourselves another hot cup of Rocket Java. There are more people on Food Stamps in the US, 47 million, than the entire population of Spain, 46 million.  That's billions and billions of Federal Reserve Notes -- our fake money, whether paper or plastic -- that adds to the inflation already created by our central bankers as they "stimulate" -- ha, ha, "stimulate" -- our economy with their $17 trillion deficit and $100 trillion unfunded long term debt (Medicare and Soc Security).  What's next, Housing Stamps?  How about Aspirin Stamps?  After all, Americans should have a big headache by now, right?  What about Shoe Stamps, French Fry Stamps, Phone Stamps, iPad Stamps, Automobile Stamps, Bicycle Stamps, Eye Glasses Stamps, and Handkerchief Stamps?  We got to blow our noses, don't we?  Uh-huh.  What the Hay, let's just let the government take everybody's money and issue all types of Stamps for every commodity and service in the economy.  Why bother with traditional money?  President Obama knows how much of everything every good citizen in America needs and he can just issue Obama Decrees and declare whatever Stamps we all need.  Hey, I need a left Tennis Shoe Stamp... OK, coming right up.  Of course, President Obama and His Royal Wifester, Michelle, need $100 million in Secret Service Stamps to protect them on their Vacation-Business-Save-The-World- Trips-Around-The-Globe every year but so what?  Just print up more Secret Service (SS) Stamps and varroooom, off they go on Air Force One to visit his birth place in Kenya and The Pope at the Vatican where they can talk to God and Allah, whomever, smoke dope, and drink wine.  Ya-yesss, that's what it's all about:  power.  Some people work and produce; some people swipe it all under the guise of "public service."  Yeah, "public service."  Thank you for "public servicing" us to death, President Obama.  All with "good intentions" you understand.  Oh, ah-hem, cough, cough, yes, "good intentions," you bet. 

--  Tue Jun 25, 2013  Dontcha just love it when people who understand zip, zero, nadda about social-political-economic philosophy pop up with -- in reference to whether whistleblower Edward Snowden should or should not have revealed the fact that the NSA is collecting every piece of communication it can about everybody in the US -- they don't care if the government spies on everybody because they have nothing to hide?  Or, the same people plus President Obama says something to the effect, "Oh no, we are not READING all your emails and phone messages, we have simply COLLECTED them and are storing them in Utah.  Ya-yesss, girl friends, we are only -- CURRENTLY -- looking at the sender and recipient addresses to find out if they have terrorist CONNECTIONS."  Uh-huh.  Terrorist connections.  And neither group -- the President or the zip, zero, nadda people -- bring up the real issue:  what if it is the government itself that we have to be fearful of IN THE FUTURE?  And, in fact, isn't that exactly why our Founding Fathers included protections in the US Constitution prohibiting the GOVERNMENT from spying carte blanche on all of its citizens?  Of course it is.  And yet, you can hear US Congressmen such as Lindsay Graham Crackers, John McCain, Diane Feinstein, and many others babbling that, "Oh, it's OK for the NSA to sweep and collect the data from our 9 major computer communications companies in order to save us from all the 'terrorists' out there who are just waiting to do us in."  These type of non-thinkers 'feel' that total security is more important than individual liberty and they are willing to sacrifice YOUR rights and their's to enforce it.  Think back in history, as in Germany and Italy in the 1930's.  Think about the USSR throughout the entire cold war.  Think about Mao's Peoples Republic of China.  Everybody was safe and secure all right -- except from their own government, which, by the way in every case, slaughtered tens of millions of their own citizens to save them from the pig pirate capitalists of America.  Or some other Boogie Man.  Right.  What an excuse for mass genocide, the Jewish Holocaust, Mao's purges of millions of people, and World War III.  It is not under freedom, private property rights, and the true implementation of the philosophy embedded in the US Constitution that is the problem; it is the slow, creeping, invasion against our private property rights that is the problem.  Currently, the NSA is the problem, not Edward Snowden.  We can monitor and implement our defenses against international and internal enemies -- true terrorists and those who are trying to harm us -- through proper implementation of the philosophy embedded in the US Constitution.  We do not have to give up our freedoms and private property rights to do so.  We do not have to turn into a police state.  We just have to use our technology properly.  As long as whistleblower Edward Snowden stands on the moral principles of our Founding Fathers, he will be vindicated.  If he strays into non-philosophical areas such as specific intelligence information that he "likes" or "dislikes," then he is straying from his basic principles and should shut up.  "Those who would sacrifice liberty for security deserve neither."

--  Mon Jun 17, 2013  NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden is now, unfortunately, straying from his original Constitutional reason for blowing the whistle on the Obama Administration and the NSA.  Namely, Snowden is now revealing that the US and Britain and other countries are spying on each other at world economic meetings.  I say:  so what?  That's their job.  The real problem was -- and Edward Snowden needs to stick with it -- that the US was gathering carte blanche information from every citizen in the US, including their emails, Twitters, Googles, texting, and phone messages.  That is unconstitutional and it is this higher moral philosophical ground that Snowden must stand upon in order to be effective.  Otherwise, he is descending into simply expressing his opinion on which type of intelligence he thinks it's OK for the US to gather vs. the sweeping methodology he originally opposed.  Let's hope somebody gets him back on track soon or he will be falling right into the hands of the Bozos in the Obama Administration, the NSA (which means Susan Rice, which means Barack Obama) and the the War Hawks from Sen. John McCain to Sen. Lindsey "The Wimp" Graham Crackers.  Wise up, Eddie, or you just may well get knocked off by that drone that you will never see.

--  Wed Jun 12, 2013  Where is NSA Whistleblower Snowden hiding out?  Honk Kong?  Russia?  Las Vegas?  Boise, Idaho?  Who knows?  What did he do "wrong?"  According to the Obama government and many war hawks in Congress, Snowden's revelation that Da Gumment is collecting and storing septillions of bytes of meta-data of all of the public's emails, iPhone communications, Google Searches, and yo Grannie's secret cherry pie recipe constitutes "treason" -- or at least a violation of his signed oath to not reveal whatever information he learns through his job at the NSA.  However, Snowden is claiming that he answers to a higher oath of law:  namely, an oath to protect and abide by the US Constitution.  Note that US surveillance laws -- such as creation of the NSA -- is subordinate to, and was allowed to come into existence by, the first law:  the US Constitution.  Further note that the US Constitution came into being by free peoples who obtained their individual rights to their own minds, bodies, and property as an inalienable right of Natural Law.  The US Constitution did not bestow rights upon American citizens.  Vice versa.  The US Constitution is not a "granting" document; it is a "prohibiting" document.  It describes what the government CANNOT do to its citizens.  And that is exactly what whistleblower Snowden is resting his case upon:  i.e., the NSA does not have legal authority to spy on its citizens or violate their rights without going through the proper procedures which DO NOT INCLUDE violations of either their explicit protections in the US Constitution or their inherent Natural Rights obtained at birth.  Will the Obama Administration violate Snowden's inherent rights by knocking him off with a drone missile while he sits sipping a hot sake on the rocks in Hong Kong?  Who knows?  It appears the Obama -- and previous administrations -- are always too eager to shut its citizens up with whatever force and power they think they can get away with.  Obama has so much social-political-economic crap on his plate right now -- virtually violating every US Constitutional and Natural Law in the book -- that he probably doesn't know whether to keep pooping on us or order up more laundry service to try and clean up all his previous diapers.  Which mess should he try to clean up first?  What are his priorities?  Benghazi, IRS targeting Tea Parties, IRS grabbing AP journalist personal papers, IRS auditing Conservatives, EPA releasing personal info of 80,000 ranchers and farmers to Eco Radical groups, Hillary's State Dept hiding hooker hookups for the Secret Service, and now the NSA working with 7-9 computer companies to swipe and store your personal emails, texts, Googles, photos, and whatever else isn't nailed down to the kitchen sink?  Where will it all end?  How about a Big Time Strike against Bo-Bama who isn't a US citizen anyway and didn't attend Columbia U. and who the hell knows about Harvard?  Maybe he sent in a Double Agent -- or wifester Michelle with a clean shaven head -- to take his tests and edit the Harvard Law Review?  Ah, what webs of deceit do governments weave to hide their dirty deeds.  I can't wait for the sequel to Obama's Divine Comedy...

--  Tue Jun 11, 2013  Here we go again.  Big Government vs. the individual.  If it's not the IRS harassing the American people, it's the EPA, the Environmental Protection Agency.  Instead of "saving" everybody from the supposed viciousness of free market capitalism -- which is a made-up fairytale in and of itself -- the EPA just released personal information on 80,000 of America's ranchers and farmers to radical Eco Greenies.  Why would the EPA do this?  Under the camouflage of obtaining info via an FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) request, the Obama Administration is apparently using environmental groups such as Earth Justice, the Natural Resources Defense Council, and the Pew Charitable Trust to whip those who are not pro-Obama, those who are continually forced to fight the excesses of the bureaucrats at the EPA.  As we have said repeatedly in these columns, the bureaus created by government are not created to "save" us from anything.  The EPA was not created to "save" us from environmental problems.  The EPA was created in order for one group, whether business or otherwise, to have a "legal" weapon to beat up on other groups, usually their competitors.  The Federal Reserve was not created to "save" us from bad bankers and recessions and depressions.  The Federal Reserve was created by and for big banks to gain a monopoly on the money supply and to "control" the economy for their own self-aggrandizement.  The FDA was not created to save us from bad food.  The FDA was created for one business group to "legally" beat up on and gain advantages against its competitors.  The IRS was created by those who created the Federal Reserve in order to enforce the repayment of the national debt and interest created by the bankers.  Those suckers, usually Liberals, who think that the IRS, the FDA, the EPA, the FAA, and all the thousands of other bureaus in the government were created to "save" us from the so-called vagaries and viciousness of the free market are stupid or... they are in one of the groups that gain an advantage over their market competitors.  So now, during all the scandals popping up left and right about how the IRS is being used by the Obama Administration to whip its political opponents, we discover that the Obama Administration is using the EPA for the same purpose.  Oh, but let's not forget:  the EPA acknowledged that it sent out more info than it should have but has now redacted portions of the same info and re-sent it to the Eco Radicals.  Oooh, like that will solve the problem.  Yeah, girl friends, here's 80,000 names and addresses of America's ranchers and farmers but don't pay attention to that info, OK?  We take it back.  Ha ha.  Not only did the EPA put the lives and livelihoods of America's  food producers at risk, they have now put America's food supply at risk, too.  Really brilliant, EPA.  If you didn't know the real reason the EPA and IRS were created before, you know it now.  Plus, we now have learned that the NSA is gathering all your emails, Google searches, and phone records at a new facility in Utah that can hold yota-byes of info.  That's a septillion bytes of data, folks.  And you thought you were big time with 16 gigabytes on your iPhone.

--  Fri Jun 07, 2013  Whoa, girlfriends, pull up the barn floor, shut up, and pour yourselves another hot cup of Rocket Java.  Welcome to Verizon Wireless.  And to Sprint.  And to Google.  And to MicroSoft hotmail.  And to Facebook.  Good thing everybody has gone social networking crazy to make it easy for the Obama Administration to confiscate all your communications so he can protect you from George Orwell's 1984 dum da dum:  TERRORISTS.  Ooh, ooh, dey everywhere, dey everywhere.  In yo closets, in yo dresser drawers, in your kitchen, in yo socks, in yo bafroom, in yo cookie jar, run run or da TERRORISTS will getchoo.  And if there were no TERRORISTS, the Obama Administration -- just like the George Bush Administration -- would make them up.  I mean, the central bankers have to have someone to blame for the global hyper inflation that they created.  The wars they're financing.  The European Central bankers have to have someone to point the finger at when housing prices and the entire economies of France, Germany, Britain, Greece, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Ireland, and Grandma's Candy Shoppe in Iceland collapse through bankruptcy.  The US Federal Reserve has to have somebody -- and I think it was the TERRORISTS, yes it was the TERRORISTS -- who inflated the US fake dollar and ran up a $17 trillion dollar deficit, and a $100 trillion dollar unfunded social security and national health care debt.  So, of course, now the Obama Administration has to "PROTECT" you from the TERRORISTS who are hiding behind every corner of every building, hiding in the airport, in public buildings, on airplanes, trains, cars, bicycles, dey everywhere dey everywhere, and save you from your little emailing self.  Uh oh.  Be careful what you say on your Facebook page.  Be careful what you send in your emails.  No no no, don't bash the current Obama Administration or they will sic the IRS on yo ass, and then the EPA, and then OSHA, and then and then errrrrrrt.... screech...  along came the Feds with Martial Law.  You know something is happening here in Obama-land, but you don't know what it is, do you, Mr. Jones?

--  Tue Jun 04, 2013  How would you like to work for a company that spent $50 million in the last two years to send its employees to "conferences" on an average of every other coupla days?  You know, to party down and do the hootchie kootchie on stage while getting drunk?  No problem.  All you gotta do is join The Internal Revenue Service.  Recession proof.  Big bonuses.  High pay for doing nothing but ensuring that the IRS harasses American citizens and threatens to shut down their businesses, burden them with ever more taxes, and drag them through the IRS Tax Court in which you get to try to prove your innocence rather that the standard US court system in which you are presumed innocent until proven guilty.  Why are we surprised?  Why would anybody ever think that a taxing agency with the illegal powers that have been bestowed upon it over the last 100 years would not evolve into the monster agency that he has become?  All government agencies that have been created in order to save us from one thing or another rest upon false premises to begin with.  Namely, if people in a free market are so bad that they are continually screwing each other over, how is it that those same people are able to create a government bureau that doesn't do the same thing -- and with complete impunity since they are now the government.  The entire line of reasoning that we need more government to save us from ourselves is illogical at face value; it is a complete contradiction.  If the people are too stupid or corrupt to live in freedom, then they are too stupid to create an agency to do the same thing they are not able to do in freedom.  And here's the upshot:  in a free market, the government exists to prosecute the bad guys.  In a centrally managed government, bureaucracies become the bad guys and then there is nobody to protect anybody from anything.  Welcome to the IRS in Obama's America today.

--  Sun Jun 02, 2013  Ah yes, "Common Core."  Another government reinvention of our failing public education system.  First, it was George Bush's "Leave No Child Behind."  Then it was Obama's "Race To The Top."  Now it's Obama's 2nd term "Common Core."  I predict next year it will be "Oh Crap, We Done Screwed Up Again."  The problem has nothing to do with education per se.  It's GOVERNMENT education that's the problem.  The Liberals keep waiting for the "good socialists" to show up and they always act shocked that we always get only the "bad socialists."  What they don't understand is that there is no such thing as the "good socialists."  That's like saying, "Oh yoo-hoo, only drink the good Arsenic," and everything will be OK.  Uh huh.  Like "socialism" per se isn't already a bankrupt concept.  Try freedom; it works.

--  Thur May 30, 2013  The "ultimate Presidential control—the ability to bring armed American forces to bear anywhere in the world within hours—has existed for over 25 years. It exists precisely because of past mistakes and embarrassing moments brought to us by various governmental agencies, congresses, and presidents.

Since September 11th, 2012, we have been treated to a tractor-trailer load of misdirection, disingenuous speeches, television appearances, and outright lying by public officials at every level of the government of the United States of America. Now with other scandals hitting the news, we are beginning to forget and confuse what is the only important point to know after we acknowledge and pray for the four Americans murdered by terrorists that fateful day.

There is one simple point to be made about Benghazi: the President of the United States is the only human being on the planet that can order a bullet, a missile, a plane, a drone, a boat, a helicopter, a soldier, sailor, spy, or push cart with a squirt gun attached to go into another country and perform an aggressive action.

On September 11, 2012, we know the President failed to give that order. We don’t know where he was, what he was doing, or why he failed to act. But we do know he failed to act, and that inaction cost the lives of four brave Americans." -- Breitbart News

--  Thur May 30, 2013  US Attorney General Eric Holder, President Obama's consigliore in his Mafia-run Empire, will probably be thrown under the bus by Obama because dummy Eric got caught lying under oath to Congress.  Asking US AG Holder to "investigate" his own "investigation of himself and the IRS," is reminiscent of the new black sheriff in the movie comedy called Blazing Saddles, in which the sheriff comes running out of his office -- in order to escape his pursuers -- holding his own gun to his head and pretending to hold himself as his own hostage.  "Everybody back off, back off, I say, or I gonna kill the hostage, ya hear!?  I'll do it, I'll shoot da Ni%$er..." expletive deleted, but you get the point.  The space under Obama's sacrificial bus is going to get really crowded real soon since Congress just sent a subpoena to the new US Secretary of State, John Kerry, to fork over all the emails between Holder and da Boyz at the IRS regarding the IRS's abuse of power in (1) the targeting and confiscation of AP and FOX journalists' personal and business communications (emails, etc.) and (2) the targeting, harassment, and auditing of Conservative and Tea Party political groups who were either trying to obtain a 501 C 4 tax exempt status or contributed to GOP political party candidates.  And it went a lot further than that.  The IRS dashed into the Gibson Guitar Company and confiscated $5 million worth of electric guitars, acoustic guitars, and other equipment claiming the guitar company was illegally using environmentally-protected wood to construct its guitars.  The IRS backed off and never took Gibson Guitar Co. to court because Gibson did not break any US or foreign laws in obtaining or using their guitar wood.  But Gibson is still out the 5 milsky.  Coincidentally, the President of Gibson Guitar had contributed campaign donations to the GOP.  I bring this particular issue up in this article because (1) I own and play a classic Gibson Guitar ES-355TD, and (2) those musicians across the nation who are left Liberals need to get their heads screwed on straight about what President Obama and his administration is doing to our country:  using the IRS and other governmental agencies such as the EPA, OSHA, as well as the IRS, to beat up on first, the Tea Party and Libertarians, and then after they run out of Libertarians, they will be coming for YOU -- oh great musicians who are FOR civil liberties, gay rights, women's rights, etc.  I propose that all musicians should boycott all performances for President Obama at the While House or anywhere else this president asks you to perform.  It is outrageous that this administration used the IRS to attack one of the major sources of our music -- Gibson Guitar Company -- in order to gain political power in the Executive Branch.  Those musicians who still don't "get it," you may as well be playing for Hitler as he persecuted the Jews who serviced your Stradivarius' and built other musical instruments in the 1930s.  Nothing like supporting your own downfall if you voted for Obama.  As the accompanying article on this home page says, we should "Abolish the IRS and the Income Tax with it."  And on the way to doing that, Congress should throw US AG Holder, and a whole host of other IRS management under the bus.  Don't wait till the IRS attacks Fender Guitar Co. -- or did they already?  Check it out.  What this administration is doing is obscene.

--  Sun May 26, 2013  Perhaps we are lucky that Barack Obama was elected in both 2008 and 2012 as President of the United States.  That way, we got beat over the head with the left Liberal ideology of altruistic state collectivism early on, in one big whopping fell swoop.  We are now experiencing first hand -- in fast motion, fast and furious motion -- how economies evolve from a half-ass free market (mixed economy) directly to national socialism.  Not since the 1930s have we have such an opportunity.  ObamaCare with the IRS running our national socialist health care program is about as Hitlerian Brown Shirt as you can get.  Just think, if we had elected a Republican In Name Only (RINO) -- such as Mitt Romney -- or your standard Hillary Clinton type of left Liberal, they would have fed us their poisonous Marxist ideology piece meal, very slowly, so we would have never noticed how we were evolving from a free market to a whoop-tee-doo, gung ho, full-fledged military dictatorship with Der Fuhrer, Barack Obama, at the top dispensing favors, cookies, money, and crackerjacks to his/her friends and government accomplices.  This is exactly what is going on with both the RINOs and President Barack Obama today, only at breakneck speed.  The major root of all evil in the economy today is the destruction of all of our values as our money has been destroyed because that is what money really is, in reality, an exchange of values.  Money is not paper.  Money is not even gold.  Money is a medium of economic exchange, an exchange of prioritized values between individuals.  And when that value system between free individuals is taken over and counterfeited into fake values by either a government or a group of bankers sanctioned to perform theft by a government, then that is the end of your society, your culture, your economy.  The slow transition of switching our money from gold and silver, to paper, to plastic, and then to simply numbers created out of nowhere on a big mainframe computer in the bowels of the Federal Reserve central banks is, in actuality, the slow transition of dumping our society's values and replacing them with lies, lies, and then more lies.  Hence, we have inflated Federal Reserve Notes, wrecking the free market process of price creation in the market, lying to the citizens about the stored values of their money in a bank, or a Certificate of Deposit, or an annuity, interest rates, or even the value of gold stock which the central bankers are currently manipulating on a daily basis in the commodities market.  This process of destroying all of our values in the economy, both financially and morally, was greatly sped up with the election of President Barack Obama as he has doubled our national debt from $10 trillion to $17 trillion in 4 short years and is trying to force the IRS between you and your doctor.  Not understanding what money really is or how it represents a moral value system, Obama is on such a rapid path of economic destruction -- and thus total value destruction -- that it is now becoming quite obvious to even the most liberal of the Liberals in this nation.  They are now concerned; they are running for cover from Obama and his immoral culture of corruption.  If this fast forward to national socialism helps us to understand sooner and more clearly how bad it would be living under that type of regime and thus helps us to not go in that direction, then that is all for the good.  So maybe we should be thanking President Barack Obama for enlightening us much earlier than we otherwise would have been about the Laws of Cause and Effect -- although not intentionally on his part.  One wonders that if Obama's Perfect Storm of (1) his Benghazi Incident of getting our Ambassador murdered while trying to cover up his international gun running to Al Qaeda, (2) his use of the IRS to deny tax exempt status to Conservative and Tea Party groups, and (3) his use of the Justice Department to spy upon and rip off AP journalists' personal communications, if that tri-fective screwing over of our moral values does not wake up Americans about how socialism evolves in an economy, then nothing will.  So, thank you Mr. President, for the fast track lesson in How To Get To National Socialism Faster Than Hell.  We know you meant well, but the road to Hell is paved with good but stupid intentions.  Presidents and central bankers rarely see or care about the disastrous results of their policies, the inflation, the unemployment, and the wars.  And even if they do, it's always somebody else's fault.  Now it's time for an impeachment.  You, Mr. President, your impeachment.  For all the high crimes, felonies, and misdemeanors you've committed against the citizens of the United States.  Time to get back to individual rights, freedom to voluntarily exchange, and a real constitutional government.

--  Thur May 23, 2013  IRS Tax Exemption Director, Lois Lerner, planned to take the Fifth Amendment when called to testify before the US Congress yesterday.  So she took the stand and immediately issued a statement saying she was a good little girl, never took the candy from the cookie jar, didn't break any laws, goes to church every Sunday, never swears, eats her asparagus before getting her ice cream, and closes with, "and I am not answering any questions today and am invoking my 5th Amendment privilege, so there, nya nya nya nya nya."  Whoa, hey wait a minute, girl friend.  First, can one invoke the 5th Amendment Privilege while testifying before the US Congress?  After all, it ain't a court room.  If the answer is 'NO,' then Ms. Lerner could go to jail for contempt.  Number two, if the answer to (1) is yes, just like in a court room, one cannot waltz, jitterbug, or foxtrot into court, make statements of denial, "Like, yo, I did not rob that bank," and then proceed to take the 5th Amendment.  Once you open your big fat mouth and start talking, you have waived your 5th Amendment rights to further questioning and answering or else what is the purpose of the 5th Amendment in the Bill of Rights? If you say you are standing on the 5th Amendment for ALL of the upcoming questions, then invoke it and shut up.  But don't show up to court or Congress and start issuing all sorts of statements and denials and then claim you're not going to answer any future questions because you're standing on the Fifth.  Either stand on the 5th or don't.  And while it is OK to take the 5th on your choice of questions, then do so but don't sit there and say you are taking the 5th on all further questions that haven't been asked yet and then rant and rave about your innocence to questions that haven't been asked yet.  Ms. Lerner's attorneys must be idiots.  Remember, the reason one takes the 5th Amendment is because one is claiming that an answer to a question may tend to incriminate oneself and one cannot be compelled to testify against oneself.  So if you don't know the question yet, how can you know that said future question may tend to incriminate you?  This is just more of the same arrogant action by IRS employees lately who have been called before Congress to answer for wrongdoings and don't want to answer any questions.  Just why were you running a program of tax exempt discrimination against Conservatives, Tea Partiers, and other Patriot groups, Ms. IRS goon?  Tell us.  and, more importantly, tell us WHO gave you that order to do so, so that we can trace it all the way back to whichever oval room in the White House it originated.  Oops, did I give you a clue?  I doubt it was in the kitchen or the laundry room.

--  Mon  May 13, 2013  Time for the US Congress to impeach Mr. Peachy Obama.  Why?  For lying to the American public about why he told the US military guarding the Benghazi Consulate to "stand down" and allow our ambassador and three other Americans to be slaughtered on the premises.  And why would Mr. Impeachment-bait do that?  Because it looks like he was trying to cover up the running of guns to the Muslim Brotherhood in Syria.  Not that the Syrian government is any great saint.  Neither the Syrian government or the Muslim Brotherhood are fighting for individual rights and freedoms.  They're both just different shades of altruistic state collectivism, or rather altruistic church collectivism, same thing in the Middle East.  But the problem with Obama playing this dangerous game is that he apparently was willing to sacrifice American officials and then try to cover it all up by hoaking up a phony anti-Muslim video and blaming it on some poor nitwit producer in Hollywood.  And while Sec of State Hillary Clinton may not have given the "stand down" orders -- mainly because the Joint chiefs of Staff do not report to the Bitch of State who likes to lie to US Congressional investigators -- she participated in the whole UN Ambassador Susan Rice fake video ruse.  And Clinton had the temerity to scream -- literally scream -- at the US Congressional investigators, "At this point, who cares" about how the terrorists overran the Benghazi Consulate and raped, tortured, and murdered our Ambassador and three other Americans.  "Maybe the terrorists were just out for a stroll, or maybe who knows whaterver," she implied as she then yelled, "At this point, who cares, the deed is done?"  Well, Bitch of State Clinton, guess what?  The murdered victims' families care.  We care.  We care because now we know what you think of us.  Now we know what Obama and YOU think of us American citizens and how you wouldn't hesitate to throw us to the wolves if it advances your political agenda both here and abroad.  It's one thing to have done the murderous deed, both at the Obama "stand down" level and the Clinton "I'll go along with that" level; but it's quite another to blame some poor innocent slob making a Grade F anti-Muslim movie, send our UN Ambassador Susan Rice around to lie on all the major TV network talk shows, and try to cover it all up.  Nixon resigned over a 10-cent Watergate burglary that was nothing but a pissy-assy bugging of the opposition party's politicians.  They got him for obstruction of justice and the cover up, not the bugging crime.  Obama and Thugs, however, set up a murder of four Americans to hide their nefarious gun running to the Muslim Brotherhood rebels, and then tried to cover it up.  If this isn't an impeachable offense, then I don't know what is.  President Obama and former Sec of State Clinton deserve at least to be booted out of politics:  as in forever.  And today can't be too soon.  Strike three, Bud, you're outta there!

--  Tue May 07, 2013  Interesting article by Dan Popkey in the Idaho Statesman yesterday about one of our Idaho US Senators: Jim Risch.  Just by analyzing quotes from Sen. Risch about how he feels about living and working in the political atmosphere of The District (Wash DC), one can glean a lot about why America has such a huge social-political-financial problem.  Namely, Sen. Risch says, "You know, I really enjoy this job.  I really like this job."  Think about that statement for a moment.  Any normal, free market, limited government statesman -- but not a RINO politician or left Liberal state collectivist bent on expanding more and more governmental intervention into your life -- would never say how much he "really enjoys, really likes" his political job in Washington DC.  He should have said the job was disgusting at every level -- intellectually, socially, politically, and morally -- and that he was there to UNDO the tons and tons of bureaucratic crap that has been dumped upon American citizens for the last 100 years.  Instead, Sen. Risch loves to dabble in international affairs, taking lots of vacations -- oops, I mean fact-finding trips -- overseas, and compares his lavish and rather open-ended job in the US Senate to his short stint as Idaho Lt. Gov and an even shorter stint as Gov. saying, "Governor will wear you down.  You can't do that job permanently.  This (as a US Senator) you can do ad infinitum."  Really?  "Ad infinitum?"  What message is Sen. Risch sending the public -- especially his voting constituents in Idaho?  Remember Sen. Risch is a millionaire and can afford a condo on Pennsylvania Ave.  And he and his wife Vicki apparently like to party down.  Like, a lot.  "Relatively frequently," quote unquote.  Risch and wifester Vicki love their membership on the board of Ford's Theatre.  Last year, says reporter Popkey, Mrs. Risch chaired a luncheon for First Lady Michelle Obama, organized by Senate spouses.  Ooooh, what fun!  President Obama and First Lady Michelle are busy trying to bankrupt the US with their national socialist ideology straight from Karl Marx's playbook, and RINO Sen. Jim Risch and his wifester are busy throwing parties for them.  Even reporter Dan Popkey, left Liberal as they come, is beginning to see the writing on the wall.  What writing?  The writing in which Sen. Risch says that everybody in The District gets along just swell, despite the failure of the Senate to agree on matters VITAL to the nation's future.  Says Risch, "You hear about this toxic atmosphere," but when the Parliament of Whores get together to party down, Risch says to Popkey, "we talk about our kids, we talk about sports. ... Socially, the people are incredibly, incredibly civil to each other."  But here's the coup de grace from Sen. Risch, answering Popkey about the huge amount of time that US Congressmen take off from work in Washington, "There's nothing happening when we're back there (The District) and there's nothing happening when we're not back there.  What's the difference?"  And that is the problem:  with 435 Representatives and 100 Senators in Congress who hold this same view, it's no wonder that NOTHING -- and I mean NOTHING -- will ever get done RE cutting back our behemoth government bureaucracy, hundred trillion dollar unfunded deficits, $17 trillion annual budget deficit, and continual social and military intervention into the lives of the individual here and abroad.  Bedrock concepts such as individual and private property rights have now been over-ridden by the ideology of politicians such as Idaho's US Senator Jim Risch who "really, really likes" his big time PARTY DOWN job in The District.  As RINO Risch closed off his interview with left Liberal reporter Dan Popkey, "You  can do a lot more of what you want to do (compared to state level politics).  There's 100 senators, 435 congressmen; we all have our own ideas, our own passions in life.  We all have our own interests and you can pursue them."  Well, no $hit, Little Beaver.  And that's exactly what's wrong with Washington DC.  535 politicians and The President all dashing off in different directions pursuing their own personal interests instead of pursuing freedom for the individual.  What happened to the concept that our congressmen are supposed to be supporting our US Constitution and Bill of Rights with limited government?  Private property rights?  Individual rights and responsibilities?  President Obama and RINO Senators like Jim Risch of Idaho -- yes, Idaho of all places, supposedly the most Conservative state in the nation, what a joke -- are too busy throwing "incredibly civil" parties while implementing their altruistic state collectivist "ideas" and "interests."  With an emphasis on "interests."  Good report, Popkey, socialist that you are; you hit the nail on the head for once.

--  Tue Apr 16, 2013  So much for the Commodities Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) doing its pretended job of regulating the Federal Reserve's central banking members' collusion in choreographing the naked shorts price decline of all precious metals last Friday and Monday.  This is a classic example of how Liberals' drag us into government regulations and bureaucracies that turn out to be The Fox watching The Hen House.  First they claim the free market must be regulated by the government.  And then they pave the way for the crooks to become the regulators.  They never ask:  who is going to watch the Watchers?  Who watches the central bankers?  Nobody.  It is the central bankers (directly or through their little puppets) who BECOME the government regulators, e.g., the CFTC.  There IS NOBODY watching anybody.  In fact, it is far worse.  The crooks have now become the watchers and are in a great position to do whatever they want to do "legally."  Something they could never have done in a true free market whose governmental function is to prohibit that which the government bureaucracy can now do with impunity.  Same for the EPA.  Same for the FDA.  Same for all the supposed government Watch Dogs whose stupid Liberal-created function was to "protect" us all from the very problems for which they were ostensibly created.  And THAT is what is wrong with the stupid Liberal ideology of altruistic state collectivism and their little fairytale view of how the real world works.  At least in a true free market, the crooks can be caught and sent to jail.  In the Liberals' socialist system, the crooks run the jail.  They run the legal system and everything else because they have become the government.  In a free market the crooks do not run the legal system; and the crooks would have a very difficult time -- if not impossible -- of creating a "banking" monopoly, a "Military Industrial Complex" monopoly, a "Food and Drug Administration" monopoly, and on and on through the entire labyrinth of government regulation and bureaucracy.  And both major US political parties are guilty for destroying the free market in banking, destroying our money, destroying our food and health care systems, energy, communications, the mail, the railroads, and very importantly: education.  The bureaucrats and our socialist President Barack Obama continue forcing the central government down our throats with more and more onerous legislation and Executive Orders.  Meanwhile Congress and the US Supreme Court -- I give you Chief Justice John Roberts who could have saved the US economy by voting YES to dump Obamacare -- sit by idly and watch it all happen... watch the US economy go down the tubes.  All because our education system has stunted the brains of our younger generation in the realm of basic philosophy, basic economics, and basically HOW to reason, HOW to use logic, HOW to think.  There appears to be no slowing down of almost EVERYBODY asking for more and more governmental intrusion into our daily lives.  The current generation seems to be more interested in "security" -- faux security at that -- and eager to give up their freedoms for said fake "security."   Nothing is what it seems anymore.  We are truly living in an Orwellian world of '1984' while proclaiming, "Wow, let's not go down the path of '1984.'"  No worries on that note, folks.  We're already there.  Your money ain't worth $hit... as you are now discovering at restaurants, grocery stores, and gas stations.  But JP Morgan and Goldman Sachs just made a killing in the 'managed' markets last Friday and Monday, forcing an obscene "short sale" blowout and then buying up tons of contracts after the prices bottomed.  Not a free market.  Not even close.  Thanks to the stupid Liberals and Conservatives who created central banking and the CFTC's fake "watch dogs."

--  Wed Apr 10, 2013  How is America different than the Titanic? A: The passengers on the Titanic didn't vote to hit the iceberg!  Welcome to Obamacare.  Speaking of phony balonies, Bill Maher pretends to be a Libertarian, then bashes Libertarianism because it's not European socialist enough.  Liberals want to implement the "good" socialism, not the "bad" socialism.  Yeah, Liberals want to force you to drink the "good" arsenic, not the "bad" arsenic because they have yet to learn that it is the arsenic that is the problem.  "Good" and "bad" are merely the chronological stages at which point you are in socialism:  i.e. "good" is the fairytale idea of socialism, "bad" is the actual practice of socialism.  That's why Liberals think you can have a "mixed" economy, full of oxymorons and outright contradictions such as (1) a government-controlled free market, public private property rights, freedom of gov't approved speech, freedom of gov't approved religion, freedom of gov't approved association, freedom of gov't approved travel, freedom of gov't approved health care, freedom of gov't approved education, and the freedom to rip off your neighbors -- called taxation -- based upon your real or imagined "needs."  And most importantly, something that Liberals will never understand:  what is money?  Since they don't know what "money" really is and why central banks are the real problem, they will never be able to "solve" any of their economic fairytale visions AND it is precisely why they hate -- and will never understand -- Ayn Rand and her Objectivist philosophy.  Show me a Liberal who can tell you what real money is and I will show you a Libertarian, which is why a Liberal is a Liberal in the first place:  because they are still at the kindergarten level of understanding praxeology and the basic laws of economics.  Next time you are at a dinner party with a Liberal and they are blowing off about social-political-economics, simply start discussing Austrian free market economics and how prices are formed in a market and they will just sit there looking dumbfounded with their thumbs stuck up their butts or they may try to crack a lame joke to change the subject.  It is not our socialist president Obama that is the problem; it's all the little idiots who voted for Obama that are the problem because they are representative of the level to which our intellectualism has devolved.

--  Sun Apr 07, 2013  Ah yes, Obamacare "Navigators."  Exactly what this nation now needs to push our economy right down the tubes into total national socialism.  What the hell is an Obamacare Navigator?  What kind of federal job is that?  A Navigator is a previous Obama Acorn neighborhood "organizer" -- or pimp -- whose job it will be to explain to the public, door to door, how to navigate through the bureaucratic federal health care maze that is being shoved down our throats because US Supreme Court Justice Roberts did not have the balls to call a spade a spade:  i.e. Obamacare should have been dumped a long time ago because it is obviously unconstitutional.  A 12-year child could have figured that out.  Obama's cleverly created new militia of health care police, the Navigators, are slated to be paid up to $48 per hour, which is about $100,000 per year plus benefits.  How many Navigators does Obama think we might need in the US?  Estimates for California are 21,000 Navigators.  Crunching the numbers, if CA has 38 million people and the US population is 315 million, that means the US needs about 8.3 x 21,000 Navigators.  That equals about 175,000 Navigators to tell Americans how to navigate through our screwed up nationalized health care system.  What else will these Navigators do?  According to the White House, Navigators should be the same ethnic percentage of those whose neighborhoods they will be invading.  That way, they will all be speaking the same 'George Orwell 1984' New Speak, especially when the Navigators get to the bottom of their forms and ask Joe Citizen for his political affiliation information.  No lie.  They will be asking for the home owner's/renter's political affiliation.  And, oh yeah, they will also be asking about each Joe Doe's personal medical information so they can do their job of navigating the poor slob through Obama's 2,700 pages of federal health care bullshit, which even Congress and the President can't decipher.  But the Navigators can.  Somehow.  Because as soon as you attach the words 'federal government' to anything, it becomes clear as a bell.  Ding dong.  How do you feel about telling some pimp-looking Bozo knocking on your door all about Aunt Tillie's back ache, sister Suzie's pregnancy, and Mom's cancer treatment, plus give out the social security numbers for everybody in the family so the Navigator can do his/her job?  Swoosh, there goes doctor-patient confidentiality out the door.  Bingo, there goes your SS number into the files of all the computer hackers in the world as the Navigators figure out they can make a lot more money selling your personal info to hackers and advertisers with mailing lists.  The sheer invasion of privacy alone should make Americans and state politicians shudder with fear.  Unfortunately, it didn't make Idaho legislators shudder with anything since the idiots were the first GOP state to pass a state health care exchange in the nation and have now been informed -- the dolts -- that the state, not the federal government -- gets to pick up the costs for their state Navigators.  Yeah, really brilliant, Gov Butch Otter.  Really brilliant.  Didn't see that one coming did you?  And there will be lots more bureaucracy coming Idaho's way, too.  We tried to tell you not to deal with the devil but you wouldn't listen.  Maybe you'll catch on later, who knows?

--  Mon Mar 04, 2013  The Federal Reserve is claiming that it is "buying" $45 billion in Treasury bonds and $40 billion in mortgage bonds per month.  Lying sacks of crap.  The Fed isn't "buying" anything.  They are simply printing or digitizing more paper debt.  A bond is a debt.  It is a deficit.  "Buying" implies the purchase of something.  With what, exactly, is the Fed "buying" more debt?  Nothing.  They have no collateral, no money that they didn't already print or digitize on a computer from thin air.  This is just make-believe money.  And at YOUR expense because you, dear taxpayer, will be paying the national debt that this make-believe money is charged to.  Once again, the Fed is pretending that they are printing wealth -- $85 billion per month -- and that they are thereby enriching all Americans in this silly game.  If the Fed was really "buying" bonds, they would have said how much gold or silver or some other commodity they were exchanging for the bonds.  Instead, they are just making up new money from thin air and claiming they are "buying" bonds with something, who knows what.  Schuck and jive, schuck and jive.  In the old days we called it by its rightful name:  counterfeiting.  Only now, it's "legal" counterfeiting and Economic Village Idiots at universities receive Nobel Prizes for babbling about the virtues of counterfeiting in today's modern economy.  The Feds call it Quantitative Easing.  How quaint.  Idiot presidents -- such as Barack Obama and our current congressmen -- call it stimulating the economy.  I prefer to call a spade a spade.  Counterfeiting.  Or, Quantitative Easing III -- because this is the third time around for this recent ridiculous Keynesian counterfeiting.  It's just a piece of unadulterated crap and, if not stopped, will be the death of the United States' financial system.  All done, to be sure, with "good intentions" by our "best president ever:  Barack Obama."  The central bank counterfeiting $85 billion per month, a trillion dollars per year, called Quantitative Easing.  Unbelievable.

--  Sat Jan 26, 2013  That huge sucking sound you hear in your neighborhood is the fruits of your labor being siphoned from your job, your home, your savings account, your income and -- most importantly -- the VALUE of your dollar on a ghost train to DC.  Why is it a ghost train?  Because nobody can see it.  It is invisible.  But you can hear it; you can feel it.  Your biggest tax is not income taxes or social security.  Your biggest tax -- never seen but always experienced -- is the continual inflation of your money supply by the government, namely the Federal Reserve who is busy managing the government, no matter what Obama thinks.  How does one revolt against a stacked deck, against a central government that is busy robbing the crap out of its people with an invisible weapon -- the devaluing dollar -- over which you have zero control?  Or will the Keynesian Economic system of "value robbery" -- inflating your currency -- implode in on itself?  How?  Food costs.  Yes, girl friends, food costs.  Have you noticed the price of potatoes recently?  And chicken, beef, fish, wheat, milk -- oops subsidized -- fruit, rice, cookies, ice cream, etc.?  Yes, you will be paying even more next year for your basic staples:  peanut butter sandwiches, hamburgers and French Fries, and pizza.  Americans will survive and pay the higher costs and bitch about it, temporarily.  But what about in Greece, Italy, Algeria, China, Russia, Japan, Egypt, Libya, and the entire continent of Africa?  These guys are already starving and food prices in those countries are skyrocketing.  That puts a huge demand on importing food from America.  Which, in turn, will put a huge demand on the price of potatoes in Idaho.  Which means the price of those hamburgers and French Fries will go through the roof.  And now the fate of those billions of individuals in Third World countries will be affecting the price of food at YOUR grocery store.  Your grocery bill.  Food on your table.  Forget that vacation.  Forget that 2nd car.  Forget college.  Forget a lot of things.  Food will always come first.  In fact, food riots due to skyrocketing food prices were the major cause of national revolutions throughout all of history:  the French Revolutions in the 1700s and 1800s, the Russian Revolution of 1917, and on and on.  So, as it turns out, you, the average American, don't have to do anything to stop the Federal Reserve from hyper-inflating your currency since they are already doing it to themselves by bringing about a food riot in America after sparking food riots in the Third World nations.  Hopefully, Iran doesn't try to swipe your French Fries by launching suitcase nukes or worse.  Or would they?  Thank you, central bankers of the world for all the future food riots that will soon engulf our globe.  Then again, that's one sure way to implement a system of population control:  hyper-inflate the currency until the serfs knock each other off, grabbing for the rationed French Fries, wheat, bread, meat, and finally eating dirt cookies as they already do in Haiti.  Eating dirt cookies.  You think it can't happen here?  Watch what is soon going to happen next year in Egypt, Greece, Italy, England, Russia, China, and Lower Slobovia as bread lines turn into bread riots.

--  Fri Jan 25, 2013  More on Sec of State Hillary Clinton and the so-called Congressional Inquiry into what happened regarding the Benghazi Murders at our US Embassy in Libya.  First, it was not an inquiry.  All Democratic Senators on the committee simply smooched Hillary Clinton's butt and gave a speech.  Second, only three Republicans asked Hillary any pertinent questions.  Third, Hillary did not answer any questions -- pertinent or not -- but rather went off on tirades that had nothing to do with a real inquiry.  But the really horrible thing that happened was that the whole "investigative" circus reveals how absurd Congress has become, what low level bureaucrats the US now has installed in important positions of power -- such as Sec of State -- and how bad off the US will be perceived in the near future.  Ms. Clinton stated that the State Dept has 70,000 employees.  70,000 employees!  If we have 70 embassies in 70 major countries, that's 1,000 State Dept employees at each embassy.  What overkill!  What could all these clowns be doing?  Certainly not their jobs or else we wouldn't be talking about the Benghazi Murders at an investigative hearing in Congress.  Hillary states that she was not aware of much of anything.  She had no budget money, she claims, but Sen. Rand Paul pointed out all the millions of dollars the State Dept has spent on parties and other crap.  Hillary, in response to Sen. Johnson's question about the sequence of events that brought about the Benghazi Murders and storming and burning of our embassy, literally jumped out of her chair and screamed, "Who cares?  We have four dead people.  What difference does it make whether it was a terrorist act or some guy decided it would be fun to knock off Americans at our Libyan Embassy?"  But wait a minute, Ms. Sec of State.  It DOES make a difference and that is precisely WHY we are conducting this hearing.  As Sen. Rand Paul stated, "I would have relieved you of your post, Ms. Secretary."  Sen. Paul asked whether Hillary was aware of what was going on in a huge warehouse building next to the Benghazi Embassy since it was widely rumored that guns and other weapons may have been stored and distributed from said building as there has been a lot of recent shipping activity nearby.  Hillary said she did not know anything about the goings on at a building next door.  I have an important question for Hillary:  if you are building an embassy, doesn't it behoove you to know what is going on around your embassy?  Same with the supposed Osama bin Laden compound in Pakistan right next door to Pakistan's "West Point."  Doesn't it behoove the Pakistani govt AND the US to know what the hell is going on in what looks like Ft. Knox down the road apiece?  Duh.  Bottom line:  Obama has no foreign policy; Sec of State Hillary Clinton was just a low level mindless bureaucrat going through the motions, and Congress is showing itself to be totally irrelevant.  Along with the Judicial Dept and all of Washington DC.  You are now witnessing the rapid decline of the American Republic.  If anybody who worked for me replied as Hillary has over the last two days, I would have immediately fired their little asses.  Which is exactly what should have happened to Ms. Clinton four months ago.  And our US President is not even a legitimate citizen, much less a president of anything.  At most, he's a puppet of the Federal Reserve.  Plus, the GOP has totally imploded into it's own altruistic state collectivism, no different than the economic fascists who call themselves "progressives."

--  Wed Jan 23, 2013  Sec of State Hillary Clinton has now recovered sufficiently from her fake "bonk on the head" to show up to a Congressional Inquiry about the who, what, when, where, why, and how of the Benghazi Embassy murders in Libya last year that took four American lives.  Prez Obama and Ambassador Rice concocted a ridiculous story that some bozo in Hollywood created a YouTube video that made fun of Muslims and Allah, and that that sparked a riot against the US compound in Libya.  Rice ran around babbling this YouTube video excuse on all the major TV talk shows, President Obama babbled this same excuse in the Rose Garden with Hillary standing by clinching her teeth and not looking like she agreed with him, and the FBI even arrested and detained some guy in Hollywood who supposedly produced or financed or shot the alleged video.  We now know that the YouTube video excuse was total bull dukie.  The big question is:  why did Obama and the administration try to pull the wool over America's eyes?  What was really going on?  Did the Obama administration try to do a "fast and furious" guns deal out of Libya with other nations such as Turkey, like the failed "fast and furious" guns deal with Mexico?  Or is Obama and his administration really just a bunch of bunglers in foreign affairs?  Now, Sec of State Hillary Clinton is testifying before Congress that (1) she needs more money, (2) it's her responsibility but wasn't her fault (really? how does that work?), (3) American embassies are being attacked all over the world (I wonder why), (4) she has implemented a new better plan so it will never happen again, (5) Obama did the right thing, (6) Ambassador Rice did the right thing, and (7) blah blah blah bureaucratic double-talk about everything except the who, what, when, where, why and how behind the Benghazi incident.  Nobody asked Sec of State Clinton any REAL questions -- except Senators John McCain and Rand Paul who completely disagreed with her answers, refuted all of them, and ripped her a new one.  In short, the upshot of the congressional hearing today was nothing except the Liberals kissing Hillary's butt, only one or two GOP senators standing up to slap her stupid answers silly, and all that was accomplished is that Hillary was a good little girl who pretended to exonerate the Obama administration -- and cover her own ass -- so she can run for the Oval Office in 2016.  Nobody, and I mean nobody, except possibly Sen. Rand Paul at other times outside today's Benghazi Hearings, have asked the fundamental question:  what the hell is the US doing sticking its nose in the business of all the nations in the Middle East in the first place?  We are there because the central bankers and OPEC oil ministers are hell bent on fixing the monopoly price of oil, forcing all participants to use only Federal Reserve Notes for all oil transactions as agreed upon at the last Bretten Woods meeting some time ago.  And these banking/oil parties have convinced both GOP and Liberal Congressmen to use the US Military to protect those fundamental banking interests.  So now all we hear about is a continual tit-for-tat response to whichever side's latest bombing, or who shot at who last week, or who blew up which embassy or trade center last.  It's no different than two tribes in the jungle committing atrocities against each other for whatever the other tribe did last week.  America has been reduced to a feud between the Hatfields and the McCoys.  Nobody wants to ask the fundamental question.  And the people who keep the wars going, the bankers, the oil companies, the arms manufacturers, the vendors supplying the military, and the bureaucrats who wring their hands at committee hearings such as the Benghazi Murders and bloviate a bunch of bullshit are busy running the Big Show.  With you, the taxpayer, financing all of it -- in more ways than you will ever know.  Hyper-inflation of non gold-backed money has serious consequences, both nationally and internationally.  If you do not understand how the central bankers are the fundamental root problem, then you do not understand what money really is.  And Hillary may get away with the Benghazi debacle and run for president in 2016.

What is the Basic Issue in the World Today? -- Part 3 of 3

by Ayn Rand
annotated by FM Duck
Feb 03, 2011

"11.  Is "The Greatest Good for the Greatest Number" a moral principle?"

"12.  Does the motive change the nature of a dictatorship?"

11. Is "The Greatest Good For The Greatest Number" A Moral Principle?

“The greatest good for the greatest number" is one of the most vicious slogans ever foisted on humanity.

This slogan has no concrete, specific meaning. There is no way to interpret it benevolently, but a great many ways in which it can be used to justify the most vicious actions.

What is the definition of "the good" in this slogan? None, except: whatever is good for the greatest number. Who, in any particular issue, decides what is good for the greatest number? Why, the greatest number.

If you consider this moral, you would have to approve of the following examples, which are exact applications of this slogan in practice: fifty-one percent of humanity enslaving the other forty-nine; nine hungry cannibals eating the tenth one; a lynching mob murdering a man whom they consider dangerous to the community.

There were seventy million Germans in Germany and six hundred thousand Jews. The greatest number (the Germans) supported the Nazi government which told them that their greatest good would be served by exterminating the smaller number (the Jews) and grabbing their property. This was the horror achieved in practice by a vicious slogan accepted in theory. But, you might say, the majority in all these examples did not achieve any real good for itself either? No. It didn't, because "the good" is not determined by counting numbers and is not achieved by the sacrifice of anyone to anyone.

The unthinking assumes that every man who mouths this slogan places himself unselfishly with the smaller number to be sacrificed to the greatest number of others. Why should he? There is nothing in the slogan to make him do this. He is much more likely to try to get in with the greatest number, and start sacrificing others. What the slogan actually tells him is that he has no choice, except to rob or be robbed, to crush or get crushed.

The depravity of this slogan lies in the implication that "the good" of a majority must be achieved through the suffering of a minority; that the benefit of one man depends upon the sacrifice of another.

If we accept the Collectivist doctrine that man exists only for the sake of others, then it is true that every pleasure he enjoys (or every bite of food) is evil and immoral if two other men want it. But on this basis men cannot eat, breathe or love (all of that is selfish, and what if two other men want your wife?), men cannot live together at all, and can do nothing except end up by exterminating one another.

Only on the basis of individual rights can any good -- private or public -- be defined and achieved. Only when each man is free to exist for his own sake -- neither sacrificing others to himself nor being sacrificed to others -- only then is every man free to work for the greatest good he can achieve for himself by his own choice and by his own effort. And the sum total of such individual efforts is the only kind of general, social good possible.

Do not think that the opposite of "the greatest good for the greatest number" is "the greatest good for the smallest number." The real opposite is: the greatest good one can achieve by one’s own free effort, to everyone living.

If you are an Individualist and wish to preserve the American way of life, ... More...

"7.  How do we determine that a right has been violated?"

"8.  What is the proper function of government?"

"9.  Can there be a "mixed" social system?"

"10.  Can a society exist without a moral principle?"

7. How Do We Determine That a Right Has Been Violated?

A right cannot be violated except by physical force. One man cannot deprive another of his life nor enslave him, nor forbid him to pursue happiness, except by using force against him. Whenever a man is made to act without his own free, personal, individual, voluntary consent, his right has been violated.

Therefore, we can draw a clear-cut division between the rights of one man and those of another.  It is an objective division, not subject to differences of opinion, nor to majority decision, nor to the arbitrary decree of society. NO MAN HAS THE RIGHT TO INITIATE THE USE OF PHYSICAL FORCE AGAINST ANOTHER MAN.

The practical rule of conduct in a free society, a society of Individualism, is simple and clear-cut: you cannot expect or demand any action from another man, except through his free, voluntary consent.

Do not be misled on this point by an old collectivist trick which goes like this: (1) There is no absolute freedom anyway, since you are not free to murder, (2) society limits your freedom when it does not permit you to kill, (3) therefore, society holds the right to limit your freedom in any manner it sees fit, (4) therefore, drop the delusion of freedom, and (5) freedom is whatever society decides it is.

It is not society, nor any social right, that forbids you to kill, but the inalienable individual right of another man to live. This is not a "compromise" between two rights, but a line of division that preserves both rights untouched. The division is not derived from an edict of society, but from your own inalienable individual right. The definition of this limit is not set arbitrarily by society, but is implicit in the definition of your own right.

Within the sphere of your own rights, your freedom is absolute.

8. What Is the Proper Function of Government?

The proper function of government is to protect the individual rights of man; this means to protect man against brute force.

In a proper social system, men do not use force against one another.  Force may be used only in self-defense, that is, in defense of a right violated by force. Men delegate to the government the power to use force in retaliation, and only in retaliation.

The proper kind of government does not initiate the use of force. It uses...  More...

"2.  What is a social system?"

"3.  What is the basic principle of America?"

"4.  What is a right?"

"5.  What are the inalienable rights of man?"

"6.  How do we recognize one another's rights?"

1. What Is the Basic Issue in the World Today?

The basic issue in the world today is between two principles:  Individualism and Collectivism.

Individualism holds that man has inalienable rights which cannot be taken away from him by any other man, nor by any number, group or collective of other men. Therefore, each man exists by his own right and for his own sake, not for the sake of the group.

Collectivism holds that man has no rights; that his work, his body and his personality belong to the group; that the group can do with him as it pleases, in any manner it pleases, for the sake of whatever it decides to be its own welfare. Therefore, each man exists only by the permission of the group and for the sake of the group.

These two principles are the roots of two opposite social systems. The basic issue of the world today is between these two systems.

2. What Is a Social System?

   A social system is a code of laws which men observe in order to live together. Such a code must have a basic principle, a starting point, or it cannot be devised. The starting point is the question: Is the power of society limited or unlimited?

   Individualism answers: The power of society is limited by the inalienable, individual rights of man. Society may make only such laws as do not violate these rights.

   Collectivism answers: The power of society is unlimited. Society may make any laws it wishes, and force them upon anyone in any manner it wishes.

   Example: Under a system of Individualism, a million men cannot pass a law to kill one man for their own benefit. If they go ahead and kill him, they are breaking the law--which protects his right to life-and they are punished.

   Under a system of Collectivism, a million men (or anyone claiming to represent them) can pass a law to kill one man (or any minority), whenever they think they would benefit by his death. His right to live is not recognized.

   Under Individualism, it is illegal to kill the man and it is legal for him to protect himself. The law is on the side of a right. Under Collectivism, it is legal for the majority to kill a man and it is illegal for him to defend himself. The law is on the side of a number.

   In the first case, the law represents a moral principle.

   In the second case, the law represents the idea that there are no moral principles, and men can do anything they please, provided there are enough of them.

   Under a system of Individualism, men are equal before the law at all times. Each has the same rights, whether he is alone or has a million others with him.

   Under a system of Collectivism, men have to gang up on one another and whoever has the biggest gang at the moment, holds all rights, while the loser (the individual or the minority) has none. Any man can be an absolute master or a helpless slave, according to the size of his gang.

   An example of the first system: The United States of America. (See: The Declaration of Independence.)

   An example of the second system: Soviet Russia and Nazi Germany [and President Obama’s America today in 2011].

   Under the Soviet system, millions of peasants or "kulaks" were exterminated...  More...

545 People

Washington, DC – Politicians are the only people in the world who create problems and then campaign against them.

Have you ever wondered, if both the Democrats and the Republicans are against deficits, WHY do we have deficits?

Have you ever wondered, if all the politicians are against inflation and high taxes, WHY do we have inflation and high taxes?

You and I don't propose a federal budget. The president does.

You and I don't have the Constitutional authority to vote on appropriations.  The House of Representatives does.

You and I don't write the tax code, Congress does.

You and I don't set fiscal policy, Congress does.

You and I don't control monetary policy, the Federal Reserve Bank does.

One hundred senators, 435 congressmen, one president, and nine Supreme Court justices equates to 545 human beings out of the 300 million are directly, legally, morally, and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague this country.

I excluded the members of the Federal Reserve Board because that problem was created by the Congress.  In 1913, Congress delegated its Constitutional duty to provide a sound currency to a federally chartered, but private, central bank.

I excluded all the special interests and lobbyists for a sound reason.  They have no legal authority.

They have no ability to coerce a senator, a congressman, or a president to do one cotton-picking thing.

I don't care if they offer a politician $1 million dollars in cash.  The politician has the power to accept...  More...

Is Sgt Bergdahl Obama's Last Hurrah?

June 08, 2014

Boise, ID -- Sgt Bowe Bergdahl deserted his US Army platoon in Afghanistan in 2009 and went AWOL.  For five years.   For you non-military individuals out there, that means he was Absent Without Leave, or absent without permission.  That also means he deserted his post in a hostile fire zone, aka during a war.  In plain English, that means that when it was time for him to stand watch to make sure the enemy -- in this case, the Taliban -- did not sneak into their platoon's encampment and blast everybody away, Sgt Bergdahl was missing.  When Sgt Bergdahl's squad leaders went to wake him up for guard duty, he was not there.  His rifle and flak vest were left on his bed and he only took a few items such as water and a compass.

  In an effort to find out what happened to him, Bergdahl's squad briefly searched their compound but could not find him.  Then they suited up, grabbed their weapons and started a search outside their perimeter. Was he captured by the Bad Guys or leave on his own volition?

  At the start of their search for Sgt Bergdahl, his squad ran into several Afghani school children who said they saw an American soldier crawling through the brush without a weapon and pointed in that direction.  The squad continued their search but finally gave up when they couldn't find him.

  From many discussions with the platoon members and Sgt Berdahl in the months before he disappeared, his comrades had long since concluded...  More...

Why I Do Not Like the Obamas

Here's an African American journalist's opinion of the Obamas. These are his words not mine.  Even if you love Obama, you might take a few minutes to read this because it is unvarnished in its implications for them and our country. -- FM Duck

Los Angeles -- The other evening on my twitter, a person asked me why I didn't like the Obamas. Specifically, I was asked: "I have to ask, why do you hate the Obamas? It seems personal, not policy related. You even dissed their Christmas family pic."

The truth is I do not like the Obamas, what they represent, their ideology, and I certainly do not like his policies and legislation. I've made no secret of my contempt for the Obamas. As I responded to the person who asked me the aforementioned question, I don't like them because they are committed to the fundamental change of my/our country into what can only be regarded as a Communist state.

I don't hate them per definition, but I condemn them because they are the worst kind of racialists, they are elitist Leninists with contempt for traditional America. They display disrespect for the sanctity of the office he holds, and for those who are willing to admit same, Michelle Obama's raw contempt for white America is transpicuous.

I don't like them because they comport themselves as emperor and empress. I expect, no, I demand respect, for the Office of President, and a love of our country and her citizens from the leader entrusted with the governance of same.

The Lost Century

by Egon von Greyerz, annotated by FM Duck

Jan 31, 2014

Zurich, Switzerland -- In November 1910, some powerful US bankers joined by the influential Paul Warburg had a meeting on Jekyll Island that would determine the destiny of the world financial system and the world economy for over 100 years. This infamous meeting led to the creation of the Federal Reserve System in the US on December 23, 1913.

The Fed was created by private bankers for the benefit of private bankers and today, 100 years later, they have been more successful than they could ever have imagined in 1913.

Not only have they created a system that efficiently controls the world financial system for their personal benefit but also world politics. They totally understood the advice of Mayer Amschel Rotschild, the founder of the Rothschild banking dynasty, who famously proclaimed:

“Give me control of the nation’s money and I care not who makes its laws.”

So for exactly 100 years now, the Fed and other central bankers have totally destroyed all major world currencies and left the world with debts that cannot and will not be repaid with normal money. And whilst achieving this unprecedented wealth creation for the top level of financiers, they have in the last 15 years...  More...

The Magnificent Failure of ObamaCare

by Prof Gary North

Jan 06, 2013

From the point of view of a defender of liberty, ObamaCare is the most magnificent welfare state program of our generation.

Washington, DC -- Premium expenses are going up for most people. Deductibles are going up for most people. Cancellation letters are going out to millions of people. The number of people signing up is less than the number of people who have received policy-cancellation letters. In short, the costs are being front-loaded, and the benefits are being back-loaded.

Always before, welfare state politics has been based on a specific strategy: "Benefits first. Costs later." This is called front-loading and back-loading. The best examples of this process are Social Security and Medicare. The costs are now coming due for these two programs. According to Prof. Lawrence Kotlikoff, the back-loaded cost of the two programs is now in the range of $200 trillion, present value. But no one really cares. Those costs will be imposed in the future. Politicians care only about the immediate future, namely, the next election.

The politicians come to the general public, and they promise that the state will intervene on the side of the middle class. The state will do so also to help the poor. The costs will be borne exclusively by the rich. Politicians are careful never to define how much money...  More...

"James Bond's dirty little spy secret: He's an alcoholic," says Dr. No research team from Nottingham University Hospitals in England

by Dennis Thompson, Health Day News Reporter

Annotated by FM Duck

Dec 14, 2013

What is the purpose of a research team at Nottingham University Hospitals in trying to "expose" that the bigger-than-life character of the James Bond spy novels was an incompetent secret agent because, they claim, nobody could really knock off Goldfinger or seduce Pussy Galore if they drank that much alcohol?  Really?  I suppose their next research task is to prove that Superman can't really fly, or leap tall buildings in a single bound, or run faster than a locomotive. -- FM Duck

Apparently the Nottingham research team has forgotten what the function of a novel or movie really is: to provide a means for individuals to experience their moral philosophy through identification with a bigger-than-life hero who is knocking off the "bad" -- solving problems -- to bring about "good."  Or, do the researchers have another objective in mind, such as destroying people's experience of identifying with a bigger-than-life hero in order to drag them back down to their dreary little lives in state collectivist Britain and America? -- FM Duck

In short, socialist states hate individualists such as James Bond because they are seen as threats to the collectivist ideology of the state.  It is not the supposed over-consumption of alcohol that the British socialist researchers dislike about James Bond; it is his individualistic attitude that is the basis for their concern because individualism is the basis for free market capitalism.  The last thing the socialist state wants is for its citizens to be hero-worshipping an individualist.  Hence, especially in a novel or movie that gets distributed to hundreds of millions of readers and movie-goers, the state propagandists want to prove that James Bond is just a drunken, impotent, bum.  The researchers' real objective:  Worship the state; not the individual. -- FM Duck

London, England --  Whoa, Holly Goodhead.  First, read the following "research" drivel about your favorite secret agent,  James Bond 007, and then we can look at what the Nottingham University researchers' real objective is in trying to disparage our favorite spy:

Say the "Dr. No" researchers at Nottingham University Hospitals:

Iconic spy character James Bond drinks so much and so often that in real life he'd be incapable of chasing down villains or wooing sexy vamps, a new study contends.

"The level of functioning as displayed in the books is inconsistent with the physical, mental and indeed sexual functioning expected from someone drinking this much alcohol," wrote a team led by Dr. Patrick Davies, of Nottingham University Hospitals, in England.

His team analyzed the famous spy's alcohol consumption and found that it was more than four times higher than the recommended intake for an adult male.

This puts Bond at high risk for several alcohol-related diseases -- including alcoholic liver disease, cirrhosis, impotence and alcohol-induced tremor. Because of his heavy drinking, the real 007 would have a life expectancy of 56, doctors say.

The alcohol-induced tremor may explain why Bond prefers his martinis "shaken, not stirred," the study authors joked. They added that the alcoholism-induced tremor in his hands means he's unlikely to be able to stir his drinks, even if he wants to.

Davies' group launched the study because they were struck by the fact that the amount of Bond's drinking in the original books seemed rather high. They wondered if he could actually carry out his missions and woo so many women at this level of drinking.

Based on a thorough reading of all of the books, the study authors concluded that Bond's average alcohol consumption was 92 units per week -- over four times the recommended amount. This figure excludes days when Bond was unable to drink.

A unit of alcohol is about 10 milliliters of pure alcohol -- about the same amount found in the average glass of scotch, bourbon or other hard liquor.

The spy's maximum daily alcohol intake was almost 50 units per day and he had only 12.5 alcohol-free days out of the 87.5 days he was able to drink, according to the findings in the Christmas edition of the journal BMJ.

Bond might even be a road hazard, since he frequently drank enough to put him over the legal limit before he climbed into his car.

Many studies have shown that people generally underestimate their alcohol consumption by about 30 percent, which means that Bond's alcohol consumption may be as high as 130 units per week, the study authors said.

It's clear that 007 needs help, the authors said. "We advise an immediate referral for further assessment and treatment [and] a reduction in alcohol consumption to safe levels," they concluded.

They also noted that excessive drinking is a global health problem that causes 2.5 million deaths a year. However, movies and other sources of entertainment often portray drinking in a positive, even glamorous, way.

Analysis by FM Duck:

How far has the welfare state of Britain gone when a team of researchers at Nottingham University Hospitals stooped to the level of claiming -- after supposedly "a thorough reading" of all the James Bond spy novels -- that fictional character James Bond consumed 90 drinks of alcohol a week (that's 13 drinks per day) and thus would be too drunk to perform all of his 007, secret agent, shoot 'em up, Pussy Galore activities for His Majesty's Secret Service?

Nelson Mandela: In His Own Words

by Joseph Farah at WND Commentary

Dec 09, 2013

Washington, DC -- As world leaders offer false praise at the funeral of the supposedly peace-loving former President of South Africa, Nelson Mandela, let's read the following quotes directly from Mandela himself that you will not read in the international press:

1) “If there is a country that has committed unspeakable atrocities in the world, it is the United States of America. They don’t care for human beings.”

Nelson Mandela: Man of Peace or Terrorist Commie?

Dec 08, 2013

"The minutes from the 1982 SACP meeting (South African Communist Party), said Prof Ellis, offered more reliable proof [that Nelson Mandela was a member]. 'This is written in a closed party meeting so nobody is trying to impress or mislead the public,'" he said."

"Worse yet, the ends in both cases (Mandela's and Obama's) are:  terror, slavery, and the brutality of state collectivism, and so the Marxist ends are just as bad as the terrorist means."

Johannesburg, South Africa -- While the world heaps praises and weeps for the recent passing of Nelson Mandela, former leader of the revolt against South African apartheid, reporters Colin Freeman and Jane Flanagan for the British newspaper The Telegraph, reveal that:

"...research by a British historian, Professor Stephen Ellis, has unearthed fresh evidence that during his early years as an activist, Mr. Mandela did hold senior rank in the South African Communist Party, or SACP.  He says Mr. Mandela joined the SACP to enlist the help of the Communist superpowers for the ANC's campaign of armed resistance to white rule.  His book also provides fresh detail on how the ANC's military wing had bomb-making lessons from the IRA, and intelligence training from the East German Stasi, which it used to carry out brutal interrogations of suspected "spies" at secret prison camps.  The former South African president, who won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1993, has always denied being a member of the South African branch of the movement, which mounted an armed campaign of guerrilla resistance along with the ANC.  As evidence of Mr. Mandela's Communist party membership, Prof Ellis cites minutes from a secret 1982 SACP meeting, discovered in a collection of private papers at the University of Cape Town, in which a veteran former party member, the late John Pule Motshabi, talks about how Mr. Mandela was a party member some two decades before.

"In the minutes, Mr. Motshabi, is quoted as saying: 'There was an accusation that we opposed allowing Nelson [Mandela] and Walter (Sisulu, a fellow activist) into the Family (a code word for the party) ... we were not informed because this was arising after the 1950 campaigns (a series of street protests). The recruitment of the two came after.'  While other SACP members have previously confirmed Mr. Mandela's party membership, many of their testimonies were given under duress in police interviews, where they might have sought to implicate him. However, the minutes from the 1982 SACP meeting, said Prof Ellis, offered more reliable proof. 'This is written in a closed party meeting so nobody is trying to impress or mislead the public,'" he said.

So how are we to judge Nelson Mandela: a man of peace or a terrorist commie?

He fought against racial segregation in South Africa but enlisted the aid of Soviet Communists and IRA bomb makers to kill innocent people.  He associated with the terrorist organization ANC, the African National Congress -- which was officially listed as a terrorist group by the US Government during the Cold War of the1950's and 60's.  Both white and black innocent citizens were bombed, interrogated and tortured to death by Nelson Mandela's communist party.

It is rather hypocritical to only look at Mr. Mandela's peaceful actions against apartheid and dismiss the truth of his communist and terrorist actions, including the killing of thousands of innocent people.  This is reminiscent of our own President Barack Obama's close association with the terrorist group The Weather Underground whose leaders Bill Ayres and his wife Bernardine Dohrn were convicted of blowing up an American police station, other sites and buildings, and killing several people during their terrorist spree in the 1960's and 1970's.

The Weathermen grew out of the Revolutionary Youth Movement (RYM) faction of Students for a Democratic Society (SDS). It took its name from the lyric "You don't need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows", from the Bob Dylan song "Subterranean Homesick Blues."  "You don't need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows" was the title of a position paper they distributed at an SDS convention in Chicago on June 18, 1969. This founding document called for a "white fighting force" to be allied with the "Black Liberation Movement" and other radical movements to achieve "the destruction of 'US imperialism' and achieve a classless world:  world communism."

Does anybody notice a social-political-economic trend here, by Nelson Mandela and Barack Obama?  Both men's moral philosophy leads to the horrors of state collectivism.

Nelson Mandela used the terrorism of his communist party against innocent people -- black and white -- to fight against racial segregation and implement Marxism.  For this, he won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1993.  Barack Obama is using Marxist terrorism in the US today to fight for a one-world state collectivist government modeled after the teachings of Karl Marx.  For this, Barack Obama received the Nobel Peace Prize in 2009.

Like Nelson Mandela, Barack's other close associations include state collectivist activists and terrorists such as Rev. Jeremiah Wright who screamed, "Not God Bless America... but God damn America," Louis Farrakhan of the fanatical Nation of Islam, and, more importantly for today, Obama's obvious supportive association with the Middle East's Muslim Brotherhood which includes Al Qaeda, Hamas, and other fanatical Muslim groups who are hell bent on a jihad against the "Great Satan," America, the "Little Satan," Israel, plus all Christians, Jews, Gays, Women, and everybody else they call "Infidels."

What is the Take Home Lesson of all of this?

What kind of moral philosophy allows one to play the role of a terrorist dictator either directly (Nelson Mandela) or indirectly (Barack Obama), be awarded a Nobel Peace Prize, and pretend that their Marxist ends justify their terrorist means?  Answer:  State collectivism, whether it's fascism, socialism, or communism.

Worse yet, the ends in both cases (Mandela's and Obama's) are:  terror, slavery, and the brutality of state collectivism, and so the Marxist ends are just as bad as the terrorist means.

Contrast this with the actions of the American Founding Fathers who fought for...  More...

What Obama and I Learned at Columbia: How to Destroy America from Within

by Wayne Allyn root at The Blaze, annotated by FM Duck

Nov 12, 2013

"America's decline under Obama isn't due to mistake, ignorance, or incompetence." -- Wayne Allyn Root

"By the time the Middle Class realizes he's the killer and they're the prey, they'll already be dead." -- Wayne Allyn Root

Las Vegas, NV -- Remember when Geraldo opened Al Capone’s vault live on national TV? Well I’m about to solve the mystery of Obama. I’m about to break “the Obama code.” I’m about to tell you everything about the way Obama, and the people around him, really think. I’m about to rip open the true Obama plan to destroy our country. Because I was there when the plan was hatched.

How do I know all this? Because I was Barack Obama’s college classmate at Columbia University, Class of 1983. I was easy to recognize – the lone outspoken conservative in a class of 700 students. I knew I was in trouble when my first political science class at Columbia was “Communism 101″ taught by Professor Trotsky in the Fidel Castro Building, at the corner of Marx Blvd. and Lenin Drive.

I’m only half-kidding. My experiences at Columbia were not far off.  [Note:  same for FM Duck, the Lone Libertarian, who attended a similar experience at UC Berkeley in the 1970s.]

Everyone needs to hear my story because what Obama and I learned at Columbia explains EXACTLY what Obama is doing to America today.

The economy in deep decline; the disappearance of jobs; the annihilation of the middle class; the demonization of business owners; the destruction of small business with onerous regulations and taxes; the overwhelming debt and spending of out-of-control government; the millions of Americans losing their health insurance; and the unimaginable increase in dependency through welfare, food stamps, unemployment, disability, and now free health care.

It’s all easily explained when you hear what Obama and I learned at Columbia.

America’s decline under Obama isn’t due to mistake, ignorance, or incompetence at the hands of a community organizer. It’s a purposeful, brilliant plan hatched at Columbia University to...  More...

The Big Cover Up -- Why Obama Really Wants to go to War in Syria

by Wayne Allyn root at The Blaze, annotated by FM Duck

Sep 13, 2013

Las Vegas, NV -- Let’s take an honest look at what Obama is doing to black Americans and his own most loyal supporters. It is, in a word…unimaginable.

It all starts with Syria. Why Syria? Why now? Until Russia interceded, going to war in Syria seemed the most important thing in the world to Obama and his Secretary of State John Kerry. They seemed DESPERATE to go to war, at any costs.

But why? Syria has nothing to do with us. They are not threatening us. Their own war is a civil war with no “good guys.” How does America benefit from a war with Syria? Why did Obama suddenly decide a “red line” has been crossed, when there are “red lines” all over the world- including the killing of Christians and the burning of 71 Christian churches in Egypt. Why is it so important to risk American lives to defend the Syrian rebels- who are partners with Al Qaeda, America’s sworn enemy? We didn’t go to war to avenge the murder of our own citizens at Benghazi, so why would we go to war to avenge Al Qaeda deaths in Syria? None of this makes any sense at all.

Until you realize it’s a massive cover-up. Obama’s WMD- Weapon of Mass Distraction. Obama is desperate to cover-up the facts about his dying economy and the damage he’s done to his own most loyal voters. Obama has destroyed the lives of the very people who consider him “the American Idol.”How bad is Obama’s economy? Forget the 7.3 percent unemployment rate that is reported by the government. That’s pure fraud and propaganda. That figure goes down only because hundreds of thousands of Americans drop out of the workforce. In other words, if you stop looking for work, and go on food stamps and welfare, Obama says the unemployment number just got better!

The only truth about unemployment is found in the Labor Force Participation Rate of 63 percent. That’s the lowest in four decades. For men it’s the lowest since record-keeping began in the 1940’s. What this means is 37 percent of the able-bodied, working age adults in America are not only not working, they’ve given up looking for work.

Even worse, a unimaginable percentage of those who are employed have only part-time jobs. Seventy-seven percent of the new jobs created since January 1st are part-time jobs. That’s not good folks.  Studies show 1-in-4 part-time workers live in poverty, while only 1-in-20 full-time workers live in poverty. So millions of Americans under Obama who show up as “employed” are merely working their way towards poverty. And millions of others who have full-time jobs are working at McDonalds, or working as waiters, or bartenders, or janitors. Those are the only jobs left under Obama. The middle class is being slaughtered.

Here are the two most ironic points about this slow-motion train wreck called the Obama economy:  More...

Is Obama Purposely Trying to Start WW III?

by Wayne Allyn root, annotated by FM Duck

Aug 29, 2013

Las Vegas, NV -- Hello, I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. Two things are happening right now under President Barack Obama that are unprecedented.

First, Obama is about to go to war in Syria and risk your sons’ and daughters’ lives on behalf of our enemy, al-Qaida. Second, he is about to risk starting World War III.

Are you on board?

And then there’s Obama’s “red line.” Obama’s defenders say, “Syria passed the red line. We have no choice.” Really? So we now call extremist Muslims killing other extremist Muslims a “red line” that demands U.S. intervention. But extremist Muslims in Egypt burning more than 70 churches to the ground and killing Christians is not a “red line?” In one place (Syria), we want to go to war. In the other (Egypt), we continue to send billions of dollars in foreign aid as a reward for killing Christians.

Do you support Obama’s definition of a “red line?” I know I don’t.

So why the rush to war? Could it be because America’s unemployment problem under Obama is unfixable? Ninety million working-age Americans are not working. The labor force participation rate is the lowest for men since 1947 (since measurement began). Obama has no way out.

The same holds true for our partners in the European Union like the United Kingdom and France. Unemployment for the EU region is 12.1 percent, the worst in history. Almost 20 million Europeans are unemployed. Youth unemployment in the EU is just below 25 percent.

How do you solve such a human psychological disaster? You go to war.

Voilà. Suddenly, young people with no job prospects have a job — in the military. They have a check, a place to live, something to do. They no longer have time to commit crimes or riot in the streets.

America got out of the last Great Depression with the help of World War II. How convenient that Obama lit the fuse for the Arab Spring, helped to topple dictators friendly to U.S. interests and took the side of the Muslim Brotherhood. Now, it’s all coming home to roost.

We fomented instability, supported the radicals who hate America and Israel, and...  More...

Barack Obama Illegally Changes ACA, Like Nixon

by George Will, annotated by FM Duck

Aug 18, 2013

Washington, DC -- Barack Obama's increasingly grandiose claims for presidential power are inversely proportional to his shriveling presidency. 

Desperation fuels arrogance as, barely 200 days into the 1,462 days of his second term, his pantry of excuses for failure is bare, his domestic agenda is nonexistent and his foreign policy of empty rhetorical deadlines and redlines is floundering. And at last week's news conference he offered inconvenience as a justification for illegality.

Explaining his decision to unilaterally rewrite the Affordable Care Act, he said: "I didn't simply choose to" ignore the statutory requirement for beginning in 2014 the employer mandate to provide employees with healthcare. No, "this was in consultation with businesses."  [FM Duck Note:  Really?  Businesses?  Which businesses qualify to help justify Obama's breaking of the law?  Can Obama change any provisions or paragraphs of any ol' law he feels like?  From where does he obtain this authority to trash the checks and balances between the three branches of government.  Certainly not from his contract with the American people, namely the US Constitution.]

He continued: "In a normal political environment, it would have been easier for me to simply call up the speaker and say, you know what, this is a tweak that doesn't go to the essence of the law . . . it looks like there may be some better ways to do this, let's make a technical change to the law. That would be the normal thing that I would prefer to do. But we're not in a normal atmosphere around here when it comes to Obamacare. We did have the executive authority to do so, and we did so."

Serving as props in the scripted charade of White House news conferences, journalists did not ask the pertinent question: ...  More...

Hit the Road Barack, I Too Have Become Disillusioned

by Matt Patterson, Newsweek, annotated by FM Duck

(Written Aug 22, 2012, that's right, 2012, not today: July 17, 2013)

Finally, Matt Patterson and Newsweek unload on Obama. As many of you know, Newsweek has a reputation for being extremely liberal. The fact that their editor saw fit to print the following article about Obama and the one that appears in the latest Newsweek, makes this a truly amazing event, and a news story in and of itself. At last, the truth about our President and his agenda are starting to trickle through the “protective wall” built around him by the liberal media.

"Not one original idea has ever issued from his mouth - it's all warmed-over Marxism of the kind that has failed over and over again for 100 years," says left Liberal Matt Patterson of Newsweek.  Wow, even the Liberals have now figured it out. -- FM Duck

Unfortunately, it is now 2013 and President Barack Obama has been re-elected for another 4 years.  If Obama is not the Pied Piper of America, leading America's youth down the path to serfdom, I don't know who is.  So much for even the left Liberal news rag Newsweek's influence on the typical American voter. -- FM Duck

Washington, DC -- Years from now, historians may regard the 2008 election of Barack Obama as an inscrutable and disturbing phenomenon, the result of a baffling breed of mass hysteria akin perhaps to the witch craze of the Middle Ages. How, they will wonder, did a man so devoid of professional accomplishment beguile so many into thinking he could manage the world's largest economy, direct the world's most powerful military, execute the world's most consequential job?  [FM Duck Note:  From a Libertarian point of view, it is not the President's function to try to "manage" the economy.  That's socialism.  It is, however, the President's job to work with Congress to dump all the state collectivist legislation that has piled up over the last umpteen hundred years and get back to a limited government, free market economy.  Obama has, in fact, worsened this problem as he has intervened more into the market -- thus into individuals' rights and freedoms -- than any other American President except perhaps FDR and Woodrow Wilson.]

Imagine a future historian examining Obama's pre-presidential life: ushered into and through the Ivy League, despite unremarkable grades and test scores along the way; a cushy non-job as a "community organizer;" a brief career as a state legislator devoid of legislative achievement (and in fact nearly devoid of his attention, so often did he vote "present"); and finally an unaccomplished single term in the United States Senate, the entirety of which was devoted to his presidential ambitions.

He left no academic legacy in academia, authored no signature legislation as a legislator. And then there is the matter of his troubling associations: the white-hating, America-loathing preacher who for decades served as Obama's "spiritual mentor"; a real-life, actual terrorist who served as Obama's colleague and political sponsor. It is easy to imagine a future historian looking at it all and asking: how on Earth was such a man elected president?  [FM Duck Note:  Easy peezy, lemon squeazy:  as Ayn Ran would have said, he obtained the sanction of his altruistic state collectivist victims.]

Not content to wait for history, the incomparable Norman Podhoretz addressed the question recently in the Wall Street Journal: To be sure, no white candidate who had close associations with an outspoken hater of America like Jeremiah Wright and an unrepentant terrorist like Bill Ayers, would have lasted a single day. But because Mr. Obama was black, and therefore entitled in the eyes of liberal Dom to have hung out with protesters against various American injustices, even if they were a bit extreme, he was given a pass. Let that sink in: Obama was given a pass - held to a lower standard - because of the color of his skin.

Podhoretz continues: And in any case, what did such ancient history matter when he was also so articulate and elegant and (as he himself had said) "non-threatening," all of which gave him a fighting chance to become the first black president and thereby to lay the curse of racism to rest?

Podhoretz puts his finger, I think, on the animating pulse of the Obama phenomenon - affirmative action. Not in the legal sense, of course. But certainly in the motivating sentiment behind all affirmative action laws and regulations, which are designed primarily to make white people, and especially white liberals, feel good about themselves.

Unfortunately, minorities often suffer so that whites can pat themselves on the back. Liberals routinely admit minorities to schools for which they are not qualified, yet take no responsibility for the inevitable poor performance and high drop-out rates which follow. Liberals don't care if these minority students fail; liberals aren't around to witness the emotional devastation and deflated self-esteem resulting from the racist policy that is affirmative action. Yes, racist. Holding someone to a separate standard merely because of the color of his skin - that's affirmative action in a nutshell, and if that isn't racism, then nothing is.

And that is what America did to Obama.  [FM Duck Note:  Because that is exactly what American "intellectuals" have taught Americans to do to themselves.] True, Obama himself was never troubled by his lack of achievements, but why would he be? As many have noted, Obama was told he was good enough for Columbia [if he really attended Columbia since nobody there, from students to professors, remember him] despite undistinguished grades at Occidental; he was told he was good enough for the US Senate despite a mediocre record in Illinois; he was told he was good enough to be president despite no record at all in the Senate. All his life, every step of the way, Obama was told he was good enough for the next step, in spite of ample evidence to the contrary.

What could this breed if not the sort of empty narcissism on display every time Obama speaks? In 2008, many who agreed that he lacked executive qualifications nonetheless raved about Obama's oratory skills, intellect, and...  More...

Obama's New Idea:  Spending $7 Billion of our Tax Money on Electric Soccer Balls for Africa 

by Chicks on The Right, annotated by FM Duck

(July 02, 2013)

This week, Obama's decided to take $7 Billion of our hard-earned money and give it to Africa -- in the form of electric soccer balls.

"We’re going to start by investing $7 billion in U.S. government resources.  ...that's what opportunity looks like."  -- Barack Obama

"No, that's what state collectivism, socialism, and robbery of the American people looks like." -- FM Duck

That Obama. He's one innovative dude.

With other people's money.

This week, Obama's decided to take $7 Billion of our hard-earned money and give it to Africa - in the form of electric soccer balls. They're called "socket balls," specifically, and they were created by two chicks at Harvard (natch). And Dear Leader plans on powering Africa with these soccer balls that carry electric generators inside of them. No lie. Basically, as kids kick them around all day long, "it generates electricity and stores it in a battery." And then those kids can go home and plug something into the ball, like a phone or a lamp or a hair dryer, or whatever.

"I am proud to announce a new initiative. We’ve been dealing with agriculture, we’ve been dealing with health. Now we’re going to talk about power -- Power Africa -- a new initiative that will...  More...

Bombshell:  Document Examiner Tied To Obama Defense Attorney Says Birth Certificate is 100% Fraud

“The answer is, because I am very close to proving Obama to be a criminal, who absolutely has to be removed from the White House and send (sic) to prison.” -- Attorney Orly Taitz

Reed Hayes is a court qualified handwriting and document examiner whose business is located in Honolulu, Hawaii. He has nearly 40 years of handwriting related experience, and has worked as an international consultant and speaker. Never heard of him? Well, Hayes is the Certified Document Examiner (CDE) who produced the 40 page opinion referenced in the Mike Zullo affidavit that was submitted to the Alabama Supreme Court in the Obama eligibility case and his report concluded that the Obama birth certificate image, located at WhiteHouse.gov is a complete fabrication.

PPSimmons reports:

The rabid followers of the “O” (Obots) have rushed to denounce Reed Hayes as a “quack.” However, one might be surprised to learn that one of Hayes’ clients listed in the Expert Witness Directory at this link is an attorney with Perkins-Coie Law Firm.

Perkins – Coie is the law practice whose partners have provided Obama’s personal defense against all birth certificate and natural born citizen litigation over the past five years. Hmmmmm. Very interesting indeed.

If it turns out that Sheriff Arpaio is successful in getting Congress to investigate the authenticity of Obama’s BC, the Perkins-Coie legal team, who will be defending Obama, will be hard pressed to simply dismiss Reed Hayes as a “quack.” This fact will be especially significant now that it is a revealed and proven truth that members of the Perkins – Coie firm have used Hayes as an expert witness! Their own prior cases, where Hayes was used as a witness, would be severely compromised if they use Saul Alinski-styled mocking attacks on Hayes.

It has been reported that Mr. Hayes has been hounded by Obama operatives to discover the details of his 40-page forensic analysis of the Obama pdf birth certificate. He has been referring them to Sheriff Joe Arpaio and his Cold Case Posse, who now legally own his report, for further information.

I also found it interesting that someone sided with the Obama administration and attempted to bring up dirt on Hayes by pointing out...  More...

Barack Obama:  The Ghost of Columbia University... and then some 

by Wayne Allyn Root

(Jun 07, 2013)

Wayne Allyn Root is a Capitalist, entrepreneur, and Libertarian-conservative Republican. He is a former Libertarian vice presidential nominee.

There is something more than just "rotten" in all of the "information" -- or lack thereof -- about Barack Obama coming out of nowhere, studying nowhere, and becoming President of the United States.  The bigger question is:  who, or what group, has created this "Nowhere Man" -- as the Beatles' song indicates -- who knows nothing, came from nowhere, but seems to be carrying out somebody else's social-political-and economic agenda?  One may claim that that would smack of claiming a "conspiracy theory" against the American people.  But let's remember the dictionary definition of the term "conspiracy:"  From the word "conspire," to agree together, esp. secretly, to do something wrong, evil, or illegal... to act or work together toward the same goal... to plot together toward the same evil or illegal goal.  And thus the definition of the term "conspiracy:"  the act of conspiring... an evil, unlawful, treacherous, or surreptitious plan formulated in secret by two or more persons; a plot.  Conspiracies have occurred all throughout history.  Conspiracies occur every day in business, politics, and everywhere.  It is only Liberal politicians who have recently tried to redefine the term "conspiracy" to mean "untruth" in order to answer unanswerable questions (by them) in a debate or discussion.  That doesn't make real conspiracies not true.  It just means that Liberal politicians don't have -- or are part of the "conspiracy" themselves -- answers to the conspiracy that is being discussed.  Until a conspiracy is proven to be true, it is just a theory, a conspiracy theory.  But after it is proven to be true, it still remains as a real conspiracy that occurred.  The upshot question is:  are we in the middle of a conspiracy theory with somebody, or group, playing President Obama like a puppet for some nefarious reasons?  Something truly smells more "rotten" than just Obama's non-attendance at Columbia University and its cover up.  Add to that the fact that Obama's birth certificate appears to be bogus, too, and that he is guiding the US into a social-political-economic debacle that will bankrupt the American and global economy from which known groups (i.e. central bankers, the military industrial complex, and other groups in Obama's pocket) stand to rake in billions of dollars, and it is not far-fetched to claim that a real conspiracy between these groups does indeed exist. -- FM Duck

Other conspiracies have existed in US history, too.  The first Moon landing in 1969 was allegedly hoaxed by the JFK administration so we could beat the Soviets to a moon landing as we promised the American public.  All subsequent landings, however -- according to reliable sources -- were true and did occur as reported.  When JFK was contemplating issuing an Executive Order to stop the Federal Reserve from printing Fed Reserve Notes and going back to using gold and silver backed currency, he was mysteriously executed in Dallas and this was blamed on a Lee Harvey Oswald who was then mysteriously shot by a man who just walked in with the news media while Oswald was being escorted to jail.  How convenient and lax security at the sheriff's office.  Vice President Lynden Johnson then took over and continued the bankers' war in Vietnam and Federal Reserve Notes continued to be printed.  To this day, we have had nothing but perpetual boogie men set up as "terrorists" or "bad guys" for the US public to fear so the central bankers and OPEC oil ministers can continue with their Petro Dollar Deal in the Mid-East.  President Barack Obama may stupidly believe in the Marxist fairytales he proposes and is trying to implement through programs such as a national health care joke but he nevertheless did not get to become and remain as President of the United States without a little help from a group that is acting or working together toward an evil, unlawful, treacherous and surreptitious plan formulated in secret by two or more persons.  Namely, it's a freaking plot.  And now that he's used the IRS to target his "enemies" -- conservatives, Tea Party activists, and AP news journalists -- he is gathering all of your private phone and email communications to use -- not for "national security" -- but rather against YOU in the near future.  Look who he just appointed as Director for the National Security Agency:  former UN Ambassador Susan Rice who ran around to all the major TV talk shows to lie about an anti-Allah video produced by some Bozo in Hollywood as the reason for the terrorist murders of four Americans, including our Ambassador, at our Benghazi Consulate.  Just when we were about to learn that Obama and Sec of State Hillary Clinton were running guns and missiles to Al Queda by mistake and were trying to buy them back.  Wow.  Just a coincidence?  Not part of a bigger conspiracy that Obama is involved in?  Yeah, right...  And I got a Golden Gate Bridge you can buy in San Francisco for five bucks...  Uh huh... -- FM Duck

So, let's look at the bigger picture vis a vis the probable existence of a huge "conspiracy theory" -- a real one, not the fake definition of "conspiracy theory" by the left Liberals -- while reading the following from alumnus Wayne Allyn Root, a former Columbia University classmate of President Barack Obama -- that is, if Obama actually did attend Columbia University.  (Cough-cough, not likely.) -- FM Duck

Washington, DC -- I (Wayne Allyn Root) just returned from New York, where I attended my 30th Columbia University reunion. I celebrated with my esteemed classmates. Everyone except Barack Obama. As usual - he wasn’t there. Not even a video greeting. Not a personalized letter to his classmates. Nothing. But worse, no one at our 30th reunion ever met him. The President of the United States is the ghost of Columbia University.

I’m certainly no “Johnny come lately.” For five years now (since 2007 when it became clear Barack Obama was running for President), I’ve been quoted in the media as saying that no one I’ve ever met at Columbia can remember ever meeting, or even seeing, our college classmate Barack Obama. Don’t you think the media should be asking...  More...

IRS Employee:  D.C. Told Us to Target Tea Party 

by Kerry Picket at Breitbart News

(Jun 02, 2013)

IRS Director met with Somebody at the White House 157 times in one year.  Remember, one does not just show up to the White House unannounced for 157 Easter Egg Hunts.  The White House INVITES you to show up, you don't just show up on your own.  So the Big Question is:  WHO at the White House INVITED the IRS Director to show up and for what purpose?  It wasn't some junior staff member who felt like babbling to the IRS Director just for fun.  The only plausible answer is that it was either the Head Honcho himself, Barack Obama, or a group created by him, in order to make plans on how to target Tea Party and other Conservative groups RE denying them tax exemptions while readily granting such exemptions to Democratic groups, AND, to make plans on how to use the IRS to confiscate AP journalists' personal and professional communications in a witch hunt allegedly for "National Security" ha ha "National Security" purposes.  And US AG Eric Holder was up to his eyebrows in this type of targeted behavior. -- FM duck

And the IRS is THE BUREAUCRACY scheduled to enforce Obamacare?  Are we crazy?  That's like Adolph Hitler using the Brown Shirts to enforce national health care in The Third Reich.  Oh well... I guess he did; Welcome to Obamacare in the Third Reich. -- FM Duck

Washington, DC -- House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) revealed new testimony from IRS employees on CNN's State of The Union on Sunday. According to transcribed excerpts released by the Committee, a Cincinnati IRS employee made it clear they were told by Washington, D.C. personnel to give extra scrutiny to Tea Party groups:

Q: In early 2010, was there a time when you became aware of applications that referenced Tea Party or other conservative groups?

A: In March of 2010, I was made aware.

Q: Okay. Now, was there a point around this time period when [your supervisor] asked you to do a search for similar applications?

A: Yes.

Q: To the best of your recollection, when was this request made?

A: Sometime in early March of 2010.

Q: Did [your supervisor] give you any indication of the need for the search, any more context?

A: He told me that Washington, D.C., wanted some cases.

Q: So as of April 2010, these 40 cases were held at that moment in your group; is that right?

A: Some were.

Q: How many were held there?

A: Less than 40. Some went to Washington, D.C.

Q: Okay. How many went to Washington, D.C.?

A: I sent seven.

Q: So you prepared seven hard copy versions of the applications to go to Washington, D.C.?

A: Correct.

Q: Did he give you any sort of indication as to why he requested you to do that?

[…]

A: He said Washington, D.C. wanted seven. Because at one point I believe I heard they were thinking 10, but it came down to seven. I said okay, seven.

Q: How did you decide which seven were sent?

A: Just the first seven.

Q: The first seven to come into the system?

A: Yes.

Q: Did anyone else ever make a request that you send any cases to Washington?

A: [Different IRS employee] wanted to have two cases that she couldn't -- Washington, D.C. wanted them, but she couldn't find the paper. So she requested me, through an email, to find these cases for her and to send them to Washington, D.C.

Q: When was this, what time frame?

A: I don't recall the time frame, maybe May of 2010.

Q: But just to be clear, she told you the specific names of these applicants.

A: Yes.

Q: And she told you that Washington, D.C. had requested these two specific applications be sent to D.C.

A: Yes, or parts of them.

Q: Okay. So she asked you to send particular parts of these applications.

A: Mm-hmm.

Q: And that was unusual. Did you say that?

A: Yes.

Abolish the IRS -- and the Income Tax with It 

by Sheldon Richman at Project to Restore America (Annotations by FM Duck)

(May 29, 2013)

[Note by FM Duck:  It was not coincidental that the Internal Revenue Service was created circa 1913-14, the same time that the Federal Reserve system was created.  The same individuals who concocted our national central bank, The Federal Reserve, wanted to create an enforcement agency in the government to make sure they could enforce repayment of all future annual national debts/deficits that the central bank planned on creating.  That enforcement agency was the IRS and the bankers who created the IRS gave it -- or at least provided for it to easily obtain in the future -- powers far in excess of what the US Constitution allowed.  The Federal Reserve is not just a friendly bank that exists to provide a wonderful financial system for the US.  It is a private consortium of the major bankers in the US who have illegally tricked the dummies in Congress into providing a method by which the bankers can rob the people of their monetary value while giving Congress the ability to spend as much deficit money as they want as a method to obtain votes.  The root of all the financial problems in the US, plus the financing of many wars around the globe, can be directly traced to the existence of our central bank AND the European Central Bank (ECB).  The Petro Dollar Deal between the Federal Reserve and the OPEC oil ministers is the direct cause of most of the unrest and the perpetual wars in the Middle East and it would not be stretching the truth to claim that the current jihad terrorism is directly related the the actions of the world's central banks.  Both Republicans and Democrats are responsible for allowing the Federal Reserve AND its enforcement agency, the IRS, to perform all the dirty deeds that have occurred over the last 100 years of both agencies' existence.  The fact that President Obama and his administration is now caught up in the same type of IRS harassment issues that many former presidents have used the IRS for should not come as a surprise to anybody.  Nobody at the IRS needs to be fired or sent to jail.  Rather, both agencies -- the IRS and the Federal Reserve -- need to be abolished.  There are better ways to fund what little the US government should be spending tax money on and we absolutely do not need the IRS to become part of a national socialist health care system, that's for damn sure.]

Washington, DC -- The Internal Revenue Service has been caught engaging in political profiling while processing applications for tax-exempt status. In this case it was against organizations with "tea-party" or "patriot " in their names and other right-wing groups. Next time it could be libertarian or left-wing antiwar and pro-civil-liberties groups. No dissenter can ever rest assured he is safe from the arbitrary power of the IRS.

Nothing will have been learned from this scandal if all that happens is the firing of some IRS administrators and the issuance of new guidelines on 501(c)(4) applications. That is not nearly enough.

Obviously, tax exemptions exist only because individuals and some organizations are subject to income and other forms of taxation. Congress levies a tax on incomes, then in its "wisdom" chooses to exempt certain activities but not others. This is social engineering, with Congress seeking to encourage some kinds of organizations — while not forgoing more revenue than necessary. The IRS then writes rules to carry out the directions of Congress.

Where possible, people will naturally strive to qualify for exemption by pushing the boundaries...  More...

New Benghazi Whistleblowers: Stevens Was Involved in Buyback of Stinger Missiles from Al Qaeda 

by Tim Brown at Freedom Outpost (Summary annotation by FM tl)

(May 23, 2013)

Summary Rehash:

President Obama and Sec of State Hillary Clinton were, according to new whistleblower sources, running an international 'Fast and Furious' gun trade with (unwittingly, e.g. just like what happened with the drug lords in Mexico) Al Qaeda terrorists.

Ambassador Stevens promised Sec of State Hillary Clinton that he would help her buy back Stinger Missiles from insurgents after Hillary and Obama discovered the insurgents to whom they sold the missiles were not freedom fighters but rather Al Qaeda jihadists.  Stevens promised to make the Benghazi outpost "permanent" vs. "temporary" but was knocked off by the same Al Qaeda terrorists from whom he, Obama, and Hillary were attempting to recoup the missiles.

While this mess was a State Dept mess, President Obama was the only one who could tell the military to "stand down" and not send troops to Benghazi to save Ambassador Stevens.  Hillary played along with this game.

General Carter Ham, in command of US Africa Command (AFRICOM) was ordered not to act to save Ambassador Stevens.  That order, according to CIA Director General David Patraeus, must come from President Barack Obama, as Commander in Chief.  Patraeus knew the Benghazi raid was done by terrorists and said so, but to shut him up the Obama Administration spilled the beans about Patraeus' adulterous relationship with his biographer Paula Broadwell.

In order to cover all this crap up, President Obama and Sec of State Hillary Clinton concocted the Terrorist Fake Movie Fairytale and sent storyteller UN Ambassador Susan Rice to all the Sunday morning TV talk shows to spread this lie, which has since been uncovered and revealed on all national news media outlets.

Meanwhile, some poor Hollywood schmuck "movie producer" sits rotting in jail after being arrested by the Obama Administration on bogus charges of initiating the Benghazi raid on our consulate with a YouTube video bashing Allah.  And poor little Hillary hugged the wives of the dead consulate workers while blaming it all on the "movie."  Plus, poor bedraggled Hillary screamed to the Congressional Investigative Panel words to the effect, "Who gives a crap what really happened at this point, since they're all dead!"

Guess what, Hilly?  We do.  And you just lied to Congress, bitch.

Washington, DC -- More Benghazi whistleblowers are coming forward according to two former U.S. diplomats. According to the former diplomats, these whistleblowers are obtaining legal counsel because they are not protected by whistleblower laws in the areas that they work in.

PJMedia is reporting of an interview with these diplomats:

The former diplomats inform PJM the new revelations concentrate in two areas — what Ambassador Chris Stevens was actually doing in Benghazi and the pressure put on General Carter Ham, then in command of U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM) and therefore responsible for Libya, not to act to protect jeopardized U.S. personnel.

Stevens’ mission in Benghazi, they will say, was to buy back Stinger missiles from al-Qaeda groups issued to them by the State Department, not by the CIA. Such a mission would usually be a CIA effort, but the intelligence agency had opposed the idea because of the high risk involved in arming “insurgents” with powerful weapons that endanger civilian aircraft.

Hillary Clinton still wanted to proceed because, in part, as one of the diplomats said, she wanted “to overthrow Gaddafi on the cheap.”

This left Stevens in the position of having to clean up the scandalous enterprise when it became clear that the “insurgents” actually were al-Qaeda – indeed, in the view of one of the diplomats, the same group that attacked the consulate...  More...

 

Only Obama Could Have Ordered 'Stand Down Call' On Benghazi

by AWR Hawkins at Breitbart News

(May 09, 2013)

Washington, DC -- A source with intimate information about the events that happened on the ground in Benghazi the night the U.S. Consulate and the CIA annex was attacked by terrorists told Breitbart News that, ultimately, only the President of the United States, or someone acting on his authority, could have prevented Special Forces either on the ground or nearby from helping those Americans who were under deadly assault.

According to the source, when the attack on the Consulate occurred, a specific chain of command to gain verbal permission to move special-forces in must have occurred. SOCAFRICA commander Lieutenant Col. Gibson would have contacted...  More...

Picture of 'Martial Law' Alarms Forensic Profiler

by Bob Unruh

(Mar 25, 2013)

Washington, DC -- A forensic profiler who worked on the disappearance of Natalie Holloway and the double-murder case against O.J. Simpson says he is becoming alarmed by some of the references President Obama is using.

Andrew G. Hodges, M.D., who wrote "The Obama Confession: Secret Fear, Secret fury," previously said Obama's statement "I am not a dictator" actualy meant, "I am the dictator president."

Hodges also concluded Obama unconsciously confessed to stealing the 2012 election.

On Hodges's website, Steven A. Egger, associate professor of criminology at the University of Houston, Clear Lake, has written that Hodges’ technique is “becoming the cutting edge of forensic science.”

“Dr. Hodges’ investigation of forensic documents in the Natalee Holloway case indicates that his ‘thoughtprint decoding method’ and ‘reading between the lines’ is, in fact, becoming a major contribution to law enforcement tools used by criminal investigators,” wrote Egger.

Hodges is not new to the field, already having identified killers by studying ransom notes, emails, letters and police interviews to spot secret confessions. He decoded Simpson’s “suicide note” to confirm Simpson had committed a double murder. He deciphered the JonBenet Ramsey ransom note in Boulder, Colo., to identify the child’s killer. He decrypted letters from BTK to predict that he was about to kill again – the only profiler to do so. He studied statements by Joran van der Sloot and Deepak Kalpoe to tie them to the slaying of Holloway. He showed how Casey Anthony secretly confessed to killing her daughter in 200 letters written to a jail mate. He even decoded Bill Clinton’s comments about Monica Lewinsky.

In his newest analysis, he looks further into Obama’s statements in his press conference about the sequester issue in which he berated Republicans for not doing what he wants.

Hodges said “another spontaneous image” appeared from Obama’s “super intelligence.”

“Asked whether he couldn’t have pushed negotiations until a deal was reached, Obama replied, ‘I can’t have Secret Service block the doorway,’” Hodges explained

“He suggests the secret wish to block the Republicans from the door to the government. Failing to negotiate, he has made every effort to demonize/crush Republicans to gain total control of the government after the 2014 election. His ‘have Secret Service’ image further suggests a desire to totally control major government law enforcement agencies– to block any opposition,” Hodges said.

“The frightening image ‘of blocking the doorway’ to those who oppose him suggests progressively ideas of imprisonment/forced containment, and a picture of martial law. Extreme? Likely so for now but equally a potential major warning of his true intent – if everything fell into place,” he said.

But Hodges noted objective actions that fit the pattern, such as the government’s purchase of 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition, the estimated 145,000 federal agents with firearm- carry authority and the 65,000 agents for the Department of Homeland Security alone.

Then, he said, there’s the report that a Minnesota company was selling to the federal government cutout targets “designed to ‘desensitize police’ to ‘nontraditional threat targets.”

The targets included pregnant women, children, older people and other civilians in neighborhood settings – all holding guns. The company reported law enforcement designed and ordered the targets.

“In your wildest imagination, who in law enforcement needs desensitization to such targets?

Hodges noted that even activists on the left have expressed concern. Medea Benjamin, co-founder of the left-wing Code Pink, in a recent WABC radio interview with host Aaron Klein, called the potential abuse by the Obama administration’s huge domestic police power “extremely troubling.”

“Recall Obama’s earlier words which, importantly, he made spontaneously, strongly pointing toward an unconscious confession. ‘We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded [as the military].’

“What exactly was he thinking and why?  More...

Obama, Congress Must Reach Deal On budget By March 1, And Then April 1, And Then April 20, And Then April 28, And then May 1

And Then Twice A Week For Next Four Years

by The Onion

(Mar 11, 2013)

Washington, DC -- With the dramatic, across-the-board sequestration scheduled to occur this week, the nation’s leading economists have warned that President Obama and Congress must come to a compromise on the budget by Mar. 1, and then again by Apr. 1, and then Apr. 20, Apr. 28, and—after Congress is once again unable to come to a comprehensive agreement to fully stabilize the economy—May 1, along with agreements twice a week, every week, for the next four years.

Experts say that without reaching a deal this Friday, the automatic $85 billion reduction in government spending will immediately slow the U.S. economy and impact thousands of middle-class citizens. Officials said the same exact thing will happen next month, the month after that, and the month after that if Obama and Congress fail to meet deadlines created by the preceding, incomplete deals.

“If the president and Congress are unable to reach a grand bargain by Mar. 1, what they will likely do is reach a set of 100 or so smaller bargains, all with their own deadlines, and all of which could potentially plunge the U.S. economy into a recession,” said Princeton economics professor Marshall Kahn. “So, the Mar. 1 deadline is absolutely crucial. Just like the one next month will be. And the 12 deadlines in May. And the bi-daily deadlines that will kick in during the summer.”

“Based on the way the president and Congress deal with one another,” Kahn added, “in 2014, there will need to be 4,562 budget deals.”

According to leading economists, should negotiations between Obama and lawmakers stall this week, Congress could vote on a resolution to extend the current deadline to May 1, which would likely cause vital cuts to public programs, and also combine the projected negotiations scheduled for May 30, June 4, June 5, July 8, 2014, and Mar. 12, 2042 into one seven-day-long meeting.

Other experts noted that even in the event of a deal, a clause in the Budget Control Act would inevitably lead to a total of 64 additional meetings between June and July, as well as a potential deadline creation deadline that would automatically kick in on Oct. 4 and would create 20 more deadlines that...  More...

The Sequester 'Crisis' and What Should Be Done

by former US Rep Ron Paul

(Mar 06, 2013)

Washington, DC -- Despite what the media and politicians would have us believe, the United States did not collapse last Friday when the package of spending reductions known as “sequestration” went into effect. The financial markets hardly blinked, as they have come to be more skeptical about these periodic government-hyped “crises.”

What had been portrayed as a drastic reduction in government spending was merely a decrease in the projected rate of increase in government spending over the next decade. Under sequestration, government spending increases by $2.4 trillion over the next 10 years rather than $2.5 trillion without it.

So we are speeding toward collapse at only 100 miles per hour instead of 110 miles per hour.

Some in Congress are using the panic over sequestration to justify another surrender of legislative authority to the executive branch. These members want to “pass the buck” on prioritizing federal programs by giving the president, cabinet officials, and high-level bureaucrats authority to set spending priorities. However, it is Congress’s job to set priorities in federal spending.

The drafters of the Constitution give the legislature the authority over spending because they recognized it was a threat to liberty to allow this power to be concentrated in the executive branch. Congress’s willingness to cede more authority to the executive should be opposed by everyone who values liberty and limited government.

Some of the loudest objections to sequestration have come from the champions of the military-industrial complex. Yet under sequestration defense spending will still increase by 18 percent over 10 years as opposed to 20 percent without sequestration.

There are claims that the military will face a...  More...

Our World Balances On a Sea of Debt

Mar 06, 2010

Re-issued Feb 05, 2013
by
Darius Guppy

“The banks that control the world’s supply of money are no better than counterfeiters – and their systems of juggling debt have left the global economy teetering on the brink of ruin.” -- Darius Guppy, convicted Dutch counterfeiter

The following article aptly describes how fractional reserve banking is simply another form of counterfeiting, pointing out the conceptual difference between (1) real money and (2) a paper receipt for real money.  Then as the counterfeiting by fractional reserve bankers grows exponentially, as it must, the central bankers – witness former Federal Reserve Chief Alan Greenspan as he embraces the erroneous concept that he can impute value to paper money per se -- start believing in their own monetary lies and create even more complicated counterfeit investment vehicles backed by nothing but hot air, such as fake mortgage-backed securities, collateralized debt obligations based upon non-collateralized future daydreams, and then gambling pieces of paper called Credit Default Swaps whose clever function consists of betting against the previously-created fractional reserve derivatives.  That’s like a counterfeiter soliciting bets that the cops will soon catch him at his counterfeiting activities, in order to mitigate his losses.  So, the investment bankers at Goldman Sachs who sit on the board of Governors of the Fed Reserve sell fractional reserve hedge fund derivatives to clients while down the hall they short their clients’ very same hedge funds with Credit Default Swaps, betting that their hedge funds will fail.  That’s worse than prostitutes who only make their money going in; the bankers make their money both going in and pulling it , continues until they can’t keep it up any longer and the market crashes and burns.  Not to worry.  It’s called a Recession, then a Depression as everybody points fingers at everybody else and the bankers blame it on a “systemic risk,” or the U.S. Congress who is also participating in this monetary gang bang, or the vagaries of a non-existent free market capitalism, or a mysterious virus from Mars. – FM Duck

“If I could counterfeit the Pink Slip to my ’57 Chevy and sell a million copies to the suckers in my neighborhood for $1,000 each, while replacing the words ’This is to Certify that There Exists One ’57 Chevy on Deposit at FM Duck’s Warehouse Payable to the Bearer of This Note on Demand’ to ’Virtual Non-Existent Car,’ I could make a fortune.  And that’s exactly what the Federal Reserve is doing with fractional reserve banking of the U.S. Dollar and going off the gold standard.” – FM Duck

Netherlands, Europe – In 1994, there resided in the cell next to mine a certain “Tommy”. He had been imprisoned for counterfeiting Dutch Guilders to such a high standard that he had fooled the banks themselves.

   As was customary among prisoners who became friends, Tommy allowed me to read his legal papers and I became fascinated by the judge’s sentencing speech, the gist of which was that his activities had been parasitical. By creating money out of thin air he had reduced the purchasing power of more deserving members of society. What would happen if everyone behaved like him?

   I thought of arguments used, in a different context, regarding inflation. Like counterfeiting, it dilutes the value of the community’s wealth and constitutes a social evil. Creating too much money – “real” or “fake” – can wreck an economy. Such was the Nazis’ reasoning when they planned to ruin Britain’s economy by flooding the country with near-perfect counterfeit bills.

   A lot of nonsense has been written about the world’s current economic woes – about how the crash is the fault solely of the banks and, by implication, governments are blameless; and how it could all have been avoided, and can be put right, by greater financial regulation.

   It is a classic example of what the philosopher Alasdair MacIntyre terms “the fallacy of managerial expertise”: an attempt by “experts” to blind us with science to justify their overpaid existences and mask their confusion. After all, not one of them was able to predict the current debacle.

   These “experts” will tell you that the present difficulties are simply the result of abuses and excesses in a system that is basically sound. All that is required is for some faults to be corrected. Do not believe them. The reality is that the problem is systemic and a little tinkering here or there will achieve nothing in the long term.

   What is needed is a root-and-branch re‑evaluation of that most curious of cultural inventions, money: how it is created, how it circulates, and how it can best be used to serve the interests of the community.

   To begin, the experts must explain in the simplest terms how money actually works. Were one to ask the man on the street – or, indeed, most politicians and bankers – who creates the money that rules our lives they would reply “the State”. They would be wrong. It is true that governments create legal tender – the physical notes and coins that circulate in an economy – but that represents, at its highest, only 3 per cent of the total money in circulation in the global economy. It is the commercial banks, largely unaccountable and privately owned, that create the world’s money.

   Indeed, even if Tommy were responsible for printing every note in circulation throughout the world his power to dilute the rest of our wealth would amount to only a tiny fraction of that of the real manufacturers of money. His activities and the activities of the bankers are, in essence, identical: the creation of money out of nothing.

   Without knowing it, therefore, Tommy’s judge punished him for usurping not so much the role of the State as the role of the banks. The same mistake – the mis-identification of where money truly originates – has been made by virtually all of our politicians, economists and financial commentators.

   Consider the contradiction at the heart of neo-liberal, monetarist economics that has constituted the Western orthodoxy for the past few decades: to emphasize on the one hand that the money supply should be brought under control while simultaneously allowing banking – where the money is actually manufactured – to run riot.

   To grasp how the global fraud works we need to step back in time and imagine ourselves next to the original goldsmith-banker.

2nd Inaugural Address; Obama Declares War on Liberty as We Know It

by Joel B. Pollak, Breitbart News

(Jan 21, 2013)

"But we have always understood that when times change, so must we; that fidelity to our founding principles requires new responses to new challenges; that preserving our individual freedoms ultimately requires collective action." -- President Barack Obama

Notice that Barack Obama doesn't understand -- or doesn't want YOU to understand -- that PRINCIPLES, by definition, do not change over time.  That's why they're called principles, like the Law of Identity, the Law of Cause and Effect, Do Unto Others, the 10 Commandments, the laws of physics, etc.  And namely, the US Constitution and Bill of Rights.  Therefore, preserving our individual freedoms DOES NOT REQUIRE a change to "collective action" -- which is Obama's Marxist code word for state collectivism, better known as national socialism.

Washington, DC -- Sounding the same themes of class warfare that propelled his re-election campaign, President Barack Obama devoted his second inaugural address to laying out his second term agenda: a struggle to undo the seeming injustices of America's past, and to overcome the army of straw men (Obama's and Karl Marx's continual fiction) that stand in opposition to progress.

In the process, President Obama attempted nothing less than an assault on the timeless notion of liberty itself:

"Through it all, we have never relinquished our skepticism of central authority, nor have we succumbed to the fiction that all society's ills can be cured through government alone.

But we have always understood that when times change, so must we; that fidelity to our founding principles requires new responses to new challenges; that preserving our individual freedoms ultimately requires collective action."

After praising the "collective" and mocking the notion that America is a "nation of takers," President Obama targeted the political opposition. He targeted those who "deny" climate change, attacked those who allegedly refused to reward the elderly for their contributions, and defied critics whom he said wanted "perpetual war." He attacked the rich--as he has done so often over the past four years--and painted a caricature of an unjust nation: "...our country cannot succeed when a shrinking few do very well and a growing many barely make it....We do not believe that in this country, freedom is reserved for the lucky, or happiness for the few."

President Obama's address failed to deliver on promises earlier in the day by senior political adviser David Axelrod that the speech would sound themes of national unity on a day of national "consecration." Instead, the president sounded combative themes familiar from his divisive first term, albeit wrapped occasionally in the lofty rhetoric of "hope" and "tolerance," and punctuated by the repeated refrain: "We, the People."

He acknowledged Americans have diverse concepts of liberty, but insisted that these could all fit together under the collective mission of the government to achieve its redistributive aims. Days after describing Republicans as...  More...

"Zero Dark Thirty," Real or Fake Extraction of Osama bin Laden?

(Jan 13, 2013)

This is where the movie, the book, and what we were told happened appears to start departing from reality.  By "reality" I mean, what should have happened if the US really was going to capture UBL from his compound in Pakistan?

Think about it.  The US pays Pakistan several hundred billion dollars as an "ally,"  -- ho, ho, an "ally" -- and yet we somehow don't even have the juice or cajones to tell the Pakistani government that we would like to search a suspected compound where the mastermind of 9/11 might be holed up.  What?  Pakistan is going to say, "No?"

Washington, DC / Hollywood, CA -- The movie, Zero Dark Thirty, debuted yesterday and I dashed down to the Regal Cinema 22 to see it.  Did not read the book, which is out in hard back under a different title than Zero Dark Thirty.  Forgot the book title but you can't miss it at the book store or at Amazon on line.

The book was written by one of the Navy SEALs who participated in the extraction -- more like the straightforward shooting, the execution -- of Osama bin Laden at his hideout in Pakistan in some city called gobbledegook-bad.  All cities in Pakistan end in three letters: "bad."

There was something very unnerving about this whole episode of knocking off UBL -- Usama bin Laden --  that occurred in 2011.  It just doesn't pass the smell test.  Let's look at the basic facts.

The US government claims they didn't know where UBL was hiding out for 10 years.  Was it in a cave in Afghanistan?  A hut in whoopteedoobad?  The Marriott at Disneyland?  Then, some CIA babe deduces -- after a lot of water-boarding and other big time American torture -- that UBL was living in a compound less than a mile from Pakistan's equivalent -- ha ha, equivalent -- of America's West Point Military Academy in gobbledegook-bad.

This is where the movie, the book, and what we were told happened appears to start departing from reality.  By "reality" I mean, what should have happened if the US really was going to capture UBL from his compound in Pakistan?

Think about it.  The US pays Pakistan several hundred billion dollars as an "ally,"  -- ho, ho, an "ally" -- and yet we somehow don't even have the juice or cajones to tell the Pakistani government that we would like to search a suspected compound where the mastermind of 9/11 might be holed up.  What?  Pakistan is going to say, "No?"

All the Pakistanis have to do in broad daylight is to invite the occupants of the suspicious compound outside for a cup of tea while both Pakistan -- our "ally," ho ho -- and the US military quickly search the suspected UBL compound to determine whether bin Laden lives there or not.  It's really simple.  And, hesto presto, if UBL is found hiding in the laundry basket or microwave oven, or under the lawn mower in the compound, then the US military and Pakistan arrests the dude and that's that.  If not, offer apologies to the head of household, dole out another billion dollars to Pakistan, and offer a free round of Bud Lites, courtesy of Barack Obama.

Is that what happened?  Nooooo.  Instead, the US CIA and Barack Obama...  More...

Obama/Congress Implement Marriage Tax Penalties in "Fiscal Cliff" Taxes

(Jan 02, 2013)

President Obama promised to sign legislation to allow gay marriage; then he signed a new tax law that penalizes married couples. 

Washington, DC -- The US Congress just passed a new law that increases the taxes of all Americans in many areas of the tax code.  The new bill does nothing to cut spending.  And the new bill does not address our out-of-control deficit, now at $17 trillion.  Nor does it address our looming debt ceiling.

But let's take a gander at a couple of the unintended tax consequences that Congress and President Obama just foisted upon all married couples.  That consequence is what's known as "The Marriage Penalty Tax."

Remember in the old days when inflation was only trotting along instead of galloping like it is today, and your IRS 1040 Tax Return listed exemptions or deductions for single and married couples?  The deduction for a married couple was not double the deduction for a single person.  In other words, it was more advantageous, tax-wise, for married couples to get a divorce and just live together as man and wife in order to double their tax deductions and exemptions.

This same anomaly -- called a Marriage Penalty Tax -- was stupidly passed in at least three sections of yesterday's House and Senate-approved "Fiscal Cliff" tax bill and President Obama will now sign off on this encouragement-to-get-a-divorce tax.

What are the new tax snafus that will penalize married couples?

Snafu # 1:  Income tax rates have now been increased from 35% to 39.6% for individuals earning over $400K, $450K for a married couple.  That means your spouse is only worth $50K for tax sheltering purposes.  Hey, get a divorce, live together and your total tax deduction will be $800K.  Ironically, Congress' new "Fiscal Cliff" tax law encourages divorce.  If you are a small business filing as a sole proprietor, it may be very important to you to shelter $800,000...  More...

Karl Marx Award
for
Worst Piece of U.S. Legislation


The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as Obamacare, has been the worst piece of US legislation since the passage of the Federal Reserve Act.  Rolling out on the web site called www.healthcare.gov in Oct 2013, Obamacare immediately crashed and burned.  6 million individuals have lost their current health care plans due to the mandates in Obamacare that forced insurance providers to cut current plans in order to comply with the provisions of Obamacare.  Essentially nobody has actually signed up for Obamacare yet because the payment subroutine in the software system for healthcare.gov has not been written.  And nobody told the public about that fact.  So, come Jan 1, 2014, there will be individuals -- thank God not too many because nobody could get through all the crash and burn error messages on the online sign up screens for Obamacare -- who will find out at their doctor's office that they are NOT covered for health insurance.  Surprise!  As we go into 2014 and the employer sign up mandates go into effect, it is estimated that some 80 million individuals will lose their health care insurance as small businesses find it cheaper to cut their employee coverage than pay double and triple their current employee health insurance rates.  The only hope for the US is that Obamacare will continue to be the most expensive government flop ever -- costing some 680 million dollars just for the web site costs alone -- and this pernicious piece of punitive legislation will be abolished by a newly elected slate of Tea Party and Conservative majority in the 2014 Congress.
