Sibel Edmonds: The United States of Terrorism

MIKE WHITNEY: Why You're a Lot Poorer Than You Thought You Were
The middle class is embroiled in a war-to-the-death with carpetbagging vermin who plan to deprive them of work, strip their assets, foreclose their homes, and leave them penniless to face old age.

If You Vote, You Consent to be Governed

...when the choice is between two piles of excrement, one only slightly less foul smelling than the other, we do not have to pick one of them out of some misguided sense of patriotic obligation. If the best the major parties have to offer fall short of the principles you believe in, then it is your patriotic duty to not vote for either one of them.

Paul Craig Roberts: Putin Is Demonized While Democracy Fails In Amerika

The Western media is silent about the collapse of the United States into tyranny. But, on cue from Washington, the Western media is loud about the dire plight of Pussy Riot.
The hypocrisy of the West, including the rank hypocrisy of human rights organizations, is nauseating. It makes one ashamed. 
Obama is a despicable patsy, a front man for powerful private interests, and Democrats should be totally ashamed to have elevated such a cowardly lowlife. But as awful as Obama is, a vote for Republicans is a vote for Hitler or Stalin. Indeed, the election of Romney and Ryan would be worse than either.


Jackson Hole

There was no surprise from the Bernanke statement other than basically he can justify more easing if he wants to. He has admitted that the recovery has effectively faltered and is ”far from satisfactory,” and as a result, the Fed “should not rule out” new policies. However, Bernanke stopped short of outlining the specifics of any moves to embark on QE3 and next week we have the more important ECB meeting with the Fed due 9/13. Gold has rallied up following the Daily Projection Line from this morning’s low to the first resistance area at 1683 with the Weekly Bullish Reversal. 1674.3 is the high of May which was the low on this move so that has been exceeded intraday. It is always the Monthly Bullish Reversals that are the key to any change in trend even short-term. They still stand at 1770 and 1796. So there is nothing that indicates a change in the trend and we have performed as the computer warned a year ago that a high at this time was in the cards. Of course the rally comes on the back of the presumption of inflation, but the contraction is still far too great. Unemployment is in a bullish mode and the rising pressure on tax collection worldwide is causing a decline in VELOCITY warning that capital is more likely to go into hiding. With taxes in the USA jumping from 15% to about 45% in January, this will take a lot more than QE3-6 to do anything. Even Keynes argued that to stimulate you needed to lower taxes. Everyone is raising taxes precisely when they should not be doing so, But governments are desperate to keep interest rates down. Inflation tracks interest rates. When they start to rise, then the recovery will begin and inflation will at last emerge. If government stupidly continues to buy back bonds, sell them to them. Take the cash NOW! The next leg will be when they start to chase money and it runs away and then rates will rise rapidly. For now, even Italy sold its long-term debt. There are still a lot of stupid people buying government debt. The fat lady remains silent.

MATT TAIBBI: Greed and Debt: The True Story of Mitt Romney and Bain Capital

How the GOP presidential candidate and his private equity firm staged an epic wealth grab, destroyed jobs – and stuck others with the bill

By making debt the centerpiece of his campaign, Romney was making a calculated bluff of historic dimensions – placing a massive all-in bet on the rank incompetence of the American press corps. The result has been a brilliant comedy: A man makes a $250 million fortune loading up companies with debt and then extracting million-dollar fees from those same companies, in exchange for the generous service of telling them who needs to be fired in order to finance the debt payments he saddled them with in the first place. That same man then runs for president riding an image of children roasting on flames of debt, choosing as his running mate perhaps the only politician in America more pompous and self-righteous on the subject of the evils of borrowed money than the candidate himself. If Romney pulls off this whopper, you'll have to tip your hat to him: No one in history has ever successfully run for president riding this big of a lie. It's almost enough to make you think he really is qualified for the White House.

NEW YORK (The Borowitz Report)—In a development that the Republican campaign is sure to find troubling, a new poll of likely voters showed nominee Mitt Romney trailing badly behind the empty chair Clint Eastwood talked to onstage at the Republican National Convention in Tampa.
When asked the question, “Who cares more about people like me?” thirty-seven per cent of voters responded, “Mitt Romney,” while fifty-two per cent said, “Chair.”
The poll numbers for the chair represent the largest post-convention bounce for an inanimate object since the nomination of Michael Dukakis, in 1988.

The Pirate Party: US Rich Flaunt Their Rapine Wealth
As gas prices and corn prices shoot upwards, the people who play the commodity markets are getting richer and richer.  This is a problem that haunts all societies throughout human history.  When things go bad, if the elites exploit this to make themselves richer by stripping the lower classes of all wealth in order for them to stay alive, this inevitably leads to a collapse of the entire society and the rich being ruthlessly eliminated either by the masses being dispossessed or foreign invaders who simply shove the whole mess into a deep pit of looting and killing.

Ryan Launches Campaign Theme of Lying About Everything Read more

TAMPA (The Borowitz Report)—In his speech to the Republican National Convention last night, Vice-Presidential nominee Paul Ryan test-drove what the Romney-Ryan campaign says will be a major theme for the 2012 Republican campaign: “lying about everything.”
“The question was, how many whoppers could you pack into one speech?” the campaign adviser Tracy Klugian said. “All I can say is, when Fox News accuses a Republican of lying, you know you’ve witnessed something historic.”
Mr. Ryan pronounced himself pleased with his performance, noting that he only strayed into the truth when he recited the names of his wife and children.
“That won’t happen again,” he laughed. “Call it opening-night jitters.”
As for Presidential nominee Mitt Romney, he said he was working “around the clock” to add additional lies to his speech tonight: “I’m no Paul Ryan, but, darn it, I’m going to do my best.”

Euro collapse imminent, experts believe
Many European banks have stopped lending across their own countries' borders, investors have pulled their assets out of European markets, and the Constitutional Court of Germany, one of the key countries holding the EU together, will soon determine whether or not its continued bailout efforts for the worst performing countries in the EU are even legal in the first place. All the signs, in other words, are pointing to an eventual euro collapse.

"Banks, investors and companies are bracing themselves for the possibility that the euro will break up -- and are thus increasing the likelihood that precisely this will happen," writes Martin Hesse for Spiegel Online. "The most radical option to protect oneself against a collapse of the euro is to completely withdraw from the monetary zone."

New FDA Act to end Canadian Mail Order Drugs at 50% of the Price

The Government has been lobbied to include under the pretense of safety, the importation of medication that saves the consumer about 50% of the cost. Again, Congress bows to greasing their personal interests by special interests. This is never about the average person – only about the lobbyists as is the case with the banks. Until political reform takes place with a single term politicians, there will be no hope in reforming the debt and those avoid a witch hunt for taxes that will reduce the VELOCITY of money.

The Troops Protect Our Freedom, and Other Lies I Learned in School
The United States’ record with regard to “enabling democracy” is also clear.  When it has best served the interests of the corporate world order to replace a dictatorship with a formal democracy, the United States has done so.  But when it has best suited the interests of corporate power to overthrow a democracy by force, the United States government has not hesitated to do so.
the wars in which all that blood has been shed have had little to do with the prosperity, freedom, or other interests of the people where the wars were fought.
More often than not, the United States has intervened to protect the corporations who own the world from the people who live in it.

Paul Craig Roberts: America’s Descent into Poverty

... today. Both political parties whore for money.

The Republicans believe that the suffering of poor Americans is not helping the rich enough. Paul Ryan and Mitt Romney are committed to abolishing every program that addresses needs of what Republicans deride as “useless eaters.”

The “useless eaters” are the working poor and the former middle class whose jobs were offshored so that corporate executives could receive multi-millions of dollars in performance pay compensation and their shareholders could make millions of dollars on capital gains. While a handful of executives enjoy yachts and Playboy playmates, tens of millions of Americans barely get by.

As Hurricane Approaches Florida, Romney Calls for Emergency Tax Cuts

TAMPA (The Borowitz Report)—With Hurricane Isaac heading towards the site of the 2012 Republican National Convention, presumptive G.O.P. nominee Mitt Romney today called for the government to respond with a round of “emergency tax cuts.”
“If this hurricane is as powerful as predicted, it could destroy many people’s second and third homes,” Mr. Romney said. “In that worst-case scenario, it would be inhumane to ask them to pay more than thirteen per cent.”
Vice-Presidential pick Paul Ryan echoed Mr. Romney’s sentiments, adding that he was glad he voted to cut emergency relief earlier this year because “big government needs to stay out of hurricanes.”
“If the federal government got involved with this hurricane, they’d make the usual mistake of sending food, water, and medical supplies,” he said. “Clearly, what this situation calls for is vouchers.”

Neil Armstrong, First Man on Moon, Dies at 82

Neil Armstrong, a quiet, self-described nerdy engineer who became a global hero when as a steely-nerved pilot he made “one giant leap for mankind” with a small step on the moon, has died. He was 82.

Mr. Armstrong died following complications resulting from cardiovascular procedures, a statement Saturday from his family said. It didn’t say where he died.

Mr. Armstrong commanded the Apollo 11 spacecraft that landed on the moon July 20, 1969, capping the most daring of the 20th century’s scientific expeditions. His first words after setting foot on the surface are etched in history books and the memories of those who heard them in a live broadcast.

“That’s one small step for (a) man, one giant leap for mankind,” Mr. Armstrong said.

Gold & The Computer

Many people have been writing about the computer forecast for gold on the monthly level and are astonished how it can write a report on time. TIME is an entirely different dimension and it must be respected as a entirely separate field. No individual is capable of forecasting the future with consistency. Perhaps there was a fight with a spouse or a conflict with the IRS. Such things emotionally distract an individual and as a result, they forget some thing to check or they are just too domestically focused. Others are “married” to a position. Some are married to an idea as with gold and will NEVER say sell – only buy. That is not analysis, it is dogma. To be consistent it takes the UNEMOTIONAL perspective. This is true in government where self-interest prevents politicians from being objective or analysts from just calling it as it is without being biased. The computer model is nearly functioning monitoring the entire world 24/7. This has been a major effort with people around the world. We will in the future have a special event in Switzerland where people will be able to talk to the computer and ask it questions. For now, this is what it wrote and was published for the December Conference last year that has so many astonished for it does not matter about the fundamental news. If it is a declining market, good news is never good enough. If it is a rising market, bad news is ignored. Trends are NOT easily reversed. They must play out their TIME. So all the nonsense about manipulating the world economy or that I am some gold hater because I dare to say it is like all markets, it goes up and down, just fall to the ground as dust in the wind. Markets will do what they do according to TIME. It is vital to understand the concept of turning points. It is never about who is right or wrong. That is for children – mommy he did this! Grow up. This is about surviving the future – not selling bullish ideas.
Looking at our empirical models, the ideal primary target for the next turning point appears to be March 2012 thereafter we see a two-month move in the opposite direction initially there appears to be a fairly large change in Trend developing in September of 2012 which can lead to a move into the January 2013. Therefore if March unfolds as a reaction high we could see a retest of support in May with a   reaction high into August for Labor Day and a decline into a final low in January 2013. It is clear that January 2013 should be a very important target. If that is a low then we should be able to see a significant rally into 2017 thereafter.”
Sometimes a computer is the clearest way to see the future. It is not biased and just calls the shots as it sees it.

Russia Slams Facebook Targeting Of US Marine War Hero

  (THESE ARE)...the exact words that threw this US Marine war hero (Raub) into the bowels of the Obama regime gulag?  Read it now, and then think for yourselves what America has truly become when words such as these are deemed terror:

By Brandon J Raub on Friday, November 11, 2011 at 10:00 am
America has lost itself. We have lost who we truly are. This is the land of the free and the home of the brave.
This is the land of Thomas Jefferson.
This is the land of Benjamin Franklin.
This is the land of Fredrick Douglas.
This is the land of Smedley Butler.
This is the land John F. Kennedy.
This is the land of Martin Luther King.
This is the land where the cowboy wins. This is the land where you can start from the bottom and get to the top. This is the land where regardless of you (sic) race and ethnicity you can succeed and build a better life for you and your family. This is the land where every race coexists peacefully. This is the land where justice wins. This is the land where liberty dwells. This is the land where freedom reigns. This is the land where we help the poor, and people help each other. This is (the) land where people beat racism.
The Federal Reserve is wrong. They have designed a system based off of greed and fear. They designed a system to crush the middle class between taxes and inflation. This is wrong, and it is unjust. It is wrong.
We have allowed ourselves to be deceived and seduced by the powers of the printing press. It is not a good system. It discourages saving: the foundation for all stable economic activity. The Federal Reserve is artificially manipulating interest rates and creating phony economic data.
This thing has deceived our entire nation.
They created it in 1913. They also created the income tax in 1913. They encouraged the growth of debt so they can tax you on it. There is interest on the debt. Your government is in bed with these people. They want to enslave you to the government so that they can control every aspect of your lives. It is an empire based on lies. They operate (out) of greed and fear.
There is a better way. It’s called freedom. Freedom is called a lot of things. But there is a true meaning. It means very simply that you have the right to do whatever you want as long as you are not infringing on the freedoms of other people.
I firmly believe that God set America apart from the other nations of the world. He saved a place where people could come to to escape bad systems of goverment. This system we have created works. It really works.
There is evil going on all around the world. The United States was meant to lead the charge against injustice, but through our example not our force. People do not respond to having liberty and freedom forced on them.
Men and Women follow courage. They follow leadership, and courage. Our example has paved the way for people all around the world to change their forms of government.
Force is not the way because liberty is a powerful concept. The idea that men can govern themselves is the basis for every just form of government.
We can govern ourselves. We do not need to be governed by men who want to install a one world banking system. These men have machine hearts. Machine and unnatural hearts.
They have blocked out the possibility of a better world. They fear human progress. They have monopolies on everything.
This life can be free and beautiful. There are enough resources on this earth to support the world’s population. There are enough resources on this earth to feed everyone. There is enough land for everyone to own their own land and farm, and produce their own energy.
These people have been hiding technology. There are ways to create power easily. There is technology that can provide free cheap power for everyone. There are farming techniques that can feed the entire world.
The Bill of Rights is being systematically dismantled. Men have spilled their blood for those rights.
Your sons and daughters, your brothers and sisters, and Americas best young men and women are losing their limbs. They are losing their lives. They are losing the (sic) hearts. They do not know why they are fighting. They are killing. And they do not know why.
They have done some extraordinary acts. Their deeds go before them. But these wars are lies. They are lies. They deceived our entire nation with terrorism. They have gotten us to hand them our rights. Our Rights! Men died for those rights!
September Eleventh was an inside job. They blew up a third building in broad daylight. Building 7.
Your leaders betrayed you.
You elected an aristocracy. They are beholden to special interests. They were brainwashed through the Council on Foreign Relations. Your leaders are planning to merge the United States into a one world banking system. They want to put computer chips in you.
These men have evil hearts. They have tricked you into supporting corporate fascism. We gave them the keys to our country. We were not vigilant with our republic.

Over 2,500 DHS employees and co-conspirators have been convicted of crimes in the past eight years, according to federal auditor 
It is often said that when an agency or department is failing, it's because there is a failure at the top, that there is something wrong with the leadership. Nowhere is that more evident than at the beleaguered Department of Homeland Security where, under the tutelage of former Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano, an agency with an already dubious resume has gone from bad to worse to despicable.

G.O.P. Offers Delegates Tips on Pretending to Like Romney

TAMPA (The Borowitz Report)—The Republican National Committee has issued the following confidential memo to delegates attending its 2012 national convention:
Welcome Republicans!
By now, you should have received your credentials, your mask of Obama in Joker makeup, and the number to call if you see Sarah Palin anywhere on the premises.
As a delegate to the 2012 Republican National Convention, the eyes of the world are upon you. More specifically, the eyes of the liberal-dominated media, who will be eager to exploit any signs of less than total enthusiasm for our nominee—that is, when they’re not trying to trick you into talking about rape.
The point of this memo is not to convince you to like Mitt Romney. We know that ship sailed long, long ago. The point is to win in November and protect the American values that our forefathers fought so hard for, such as mandatory transvaginal ultrasounds.
Here, then, is a list of helpful tips on how to pretend to like Mitt Romney:
1. In previous regional practice sessions, there has been a ten to fifteen second lag time between a speaker saying the name “Mitt Romney” and any audible applause or cheering on the part of session participants. To tighten up this “silence hole,” try to get in the habit of clapping/hooting/stomping whenever anyone says anything.
2. Here’s a simple exercise you can do in your hotel room, car, or anywhere. Say the name “Mitt Romney,” then try to visualize something that you love: a family member, for example, or your favorite Fox host.
3. Starting Monday morning at the Tampa Marriott there will be intensive thirty-minute coaching seminars on fake smiling and squealing led by Flo, of Progressive insurance fame! There will be light refreshments and amphetamines.
4. Some of you have expressed concern that no matter how hard you try, even after listening to the Kid Rock “Romney Rocks” CD we provided, every time you hear the name Mitt Romney you can’t help but frown and find yourselves on the edge of tears. To you, we say: “Go for it!” TV viewers are sure to misinterpret a delegate’s full-on sobbing as a sign of being overwhelmed by love for Mitt (LOL). To hone your weeping skills, we’ve included in your Convention Welcome Bag a DVD of Michael Phelps’s mom, Debbie, at the London Olympics and footage of Kim Jong-il’s funeral.
5. Close your eyes and think of Santorum.

Gold is moving to the upside going into the end of this month. This is not particularly good long-term just yet. Nevertheless, the first resistance is 1683 with the Weekly Bullish Reversal. 1674.3 is the high of May which was the low on this move. That is providing some closing resistance just technically.It is always the Monthly Bullish Reversals that are the key to any change in trend even short-term. They still stand at 1770 and 1796. But a new low under that of May would cause those numbers to drop sharply setting this up for a possible change in trend near-term.
The higher volatility we saw for 3 weeks after the week of 8/6 seems to be on target. Unfortunately, a rally for 3 weeks sets the stage for the opposite direction. A low would have been better. But we have to take what the market gives. Turning points are just that, An event.

Law Enforcement is Not Your Friend
Law, instead of being concrete and based on moral principles, is bent and formed to fit whatever the enforcers in the state deem necessary.  Instead of protecting person and property, law enforcement seeks to protect itself and the power it has accumulated.  In other words, “protect and serve” does not apply to society but rather to their employer known as the state.

“A society whose citizens refuse to see and investigate the facts, who refuse to believe that their government and their media will routinely lie to them and fabricate a reality contrary to verifiable facts, is a society that chooses and deserves the Police State Dictatorship it's going to get.”

Santelli Exposes The Political Fed Behind The Curtain As Romney Makes Bernanke A Target

Wednesday, August 22, 2012


TAMPA (The Borowitz Report)—With the threat of Hurricane Isaac hitting Florida next week, the Republican National Committee took the extraordinary step today of moving their 2012 National Convention to the seventeenth century.
While the decision to send the convention four centuries back in time raised eyebrows among some political observers, R.N.C. spokesperson Harland Dorrinson downplayed the unusual nature of the move.
“After exploring a number of options, we decided that moving to the seventeenth century would cause the least disruption,” he said. “We’re not going to have to change a thing.”
Mr. Dorrinson added that despite recent controversy involving the U.S. Senate candidate Representative Todd Akin (R., Miss.), there would be no modification of the Party’s official platform: “After we ban abortion in cases of rape and incest, we’re going to focus on America’s spiralling witch problem.”

Are People Being Thrown In Psychiatric Wards For Their Political Views?

American psychologists created the American program of torture which was specially-crafted to producefalse confessions to justify U.S. military policy. And see this.
And authoritarian American psychologists are eager to label anyone “taking a cynical stance toward politics, mistrusting authority, endorsing democratic practices, … and displaying an inquisitive, imaginative outlook” as worthy of a trip to the insane asylum. (Those traits may also get one labeled as a potential terrorist.)


Because I Was Silent When They Came for You, There Was No One Left to Speak Out When They Came for Me

First they tortured a U.S. citizen and gang member …
I remained silent;
I wasn’t a criminal
Then they tortured a U.S. citizen, whistleblower and navy veteran …
I remained silent;
I wasn’t a whistleblower
Then they locked up an attorney for representing accused criminals …
I remained silent;
I wasn’t a defense attorney
Then they arrested a young father walking with his son simply because he told Dick Cheney that he disagreed with his policies …
I remained silent;
I’ve never talked to an important politician
Then they arrested people for demanding that Congress hold the President to the Constitution …
I did not speak out;
I’ve never protested in Washington
Then they arrested a man for holding a sign …
I held my tongue;
I’ve never held that kind of sign
Then they broke a minister’s leg because he wanted to speak at a public event …
I said nothing;
I wasn’t a religious leader
Then they shot a student with a taser gun and arrested him for asking a question of a politician at a public event …
I remained silent;
I wasn’t a student
Then they declared that they could label U.S. citizens living on U.S. soil as “unlawful enemy combatants” and imprison them indefinitely without access to any attorney …
I remained silent;
I didn’t want to be labeled an enemy
Then they declared that they could assassinate U.S. citizens living on U.S. soil without any due process of law …
I remained silent;
I assumed I wasn’t on a list
Then they threw political dissenters in psychiatric wards …
I remained silent;
I didn’t want to be seen as crazy
When they came for me,
Everyone was silent;
there was no one left to speak out.

On the Road to Ryan and Ruin

 It is to be noted that the country’s most recent recession (2007-2009) has been the worst of the post war era and a direct result of prior deregulation. 
We are still on that path and the living proof of this fact is that the Republican presidential candidate, Mitt Romney has just selected Congressman Paul Ryan as his running mate.  Ryan is the Chairman of the Budget Committee in the Republican controlled House of Representatives, and author of a proposed federal budget that would slash social spending (and those safety nets) by some $3.3 trillion, ditch Medicare and Medicaid, while simultaneously cutting taxes for the wealthy.  Ryan is no less than the reincarnation of a free marketeer who wants to recreate the circumstances that brought us all 33 major economic downturns crowned by the Great Depression.  How quickly people forget. 

...a Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan presidency would most likely increase the pace of deregulation and destroy what is left of the country’s safety nets.  It would ultimately devastate the middle class, greatly increase the ranks of the poor and unemployed, do away with union rights, and reserve prosperity for the upper class alone.  All of this will be done in the name of the liberty.  And, it will be guided by an ideological paradigm that has already been historically proven to be disastrous.
