US Government Entitlements - The Sixth Biggest Economy On Earth

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-07-30/us-government-entitlements-sixth-biggest-economy-earth

 Because the main street economy is failing, the nation’s entitlement rolls have exploded. About 110 million citizens now receive some form of means tested benefits. When social security is included, more than 160 million citizens get checks from Washington. The total cost is now $3 trillion per year and rising rapidly. America’s entitlements sector, in fact, is the sixth biggest economy in the world.

81-minute radio interview: Carl Herman on $1,000,000 per US household monetary reform benefits rather than 20 Americans own more than bottom 50%, .1% own more than 90%, 1% more wealthy than 99%

"if businesses and households were to resume borrowing in earnest, the US money supply could balloon to 15 times its current size, sending inflation as high as 1,500%. The corresponding ratios are 28 times for Japan and Switzerland, five times for the eurozone, and 11 times for the UK. Once private-sector demand for loans recovers in these countries, confidence in the dollar, euro, and yen will plummet."

Another case of violent murder without blood

A reader sent me this article from the Daily Mail in the UK about the Syrian refugee who reportedly went on a machete rampage in Germany, killing one person and injuring two. There are many photos in the story, but only one tells us anything. Scroll down until you see the machete lying where it was dropped. This is allegedly a machete that has just killed one person and hacked two others. Where is the blood? How can a weapon used to cut up three people be so squeaky clean?

American History in Thirty Minutes or Less (Or It's Free)

https://www.lewrockwell.com/2016/07/jack-perry/american-history-30-minutes/

Someone recently posed these questions to me: “Jack, isn’t there some way you could say America is the greatest nation on earth? I mean, look at all we’ve done! Isn’t that greatness, after all?” Now, these are valid questions. America has accomplished some rather remarkable things, but they’re not quite the same things the government-approved school history textbooks tell us. Therefore, allow me to explain.

CLUB ORLOV: Putin to Western elites: Play-time is over

http://cluborlov.blogspot.ru/2014/10/putin-to-western-elites-play-time-is.html

 Most people in the English-speaking parts of the world missed Putin's speech at the Valdai conference in Sochi a few days ago, and, chances are, those of you who have heard of the speech didn't get a chance to read it, and missed its importance. (For your convenience, I am pasting in the full transcript of his speech below.) Western media did their best to ignore it or to twist its meaning. Regardless of what you think or don't think of Putin (like the sun and the moon, he does not exist for you to cultivate an opinion) this is probably the most important political speech since Churchill's “Iron Curtain” speech of March 5, 1946.

Obama Baton Ruge
The deliberate killing of police in Baton Rouge, Louisiana has been the subject of much propaganda. President Obama did not address what is obvious to everyone and tried to cover up the root cause behind this new wave of violence. “There is no justification for violence against law enforcement. None.” Obama said. “These attacks are the work of cowards who speak for no one. They right no wrongs. They advance no causes.”
These words show that he is either plainly stupid or he is in a complete state of denial. Innocent, decent police will now have to pay the price for protecting the bad apples unless an honest reflection is taken on the root causes of these recent incidents. The code whereby police protect police, judges protect judges, and politicians protect politicians of their own party is the real problem. If the crazy police who kill people without just cause are not prosecuted, this WILL lead to the perception that ALL POLICE are evil.
When a friend would come here to visit from Ukraine before the last revolution, the mere sight of a policeman would cause intense fear. They were conditioned to know that the police were the government’s mafia who were not there to protect society, but to protect government from society.
The Catholic Church protected priests who were sex offenders. The natural thought is that exposing one bad apple taints the whole, but not doing so leads to more and more events coming to light and then the very thing they tried to prevent unfolds. Many people now look at priests as potential sex offenders. Of course, it is not true about the majority. Nevertheless, you foster such an image by protecting the few. We are accomplishing the same final result with the police and turning this into a war of them against us that some will perceive and act on with increasing results.
Refusing to prosecute police who have simply crossed the line is creating that same image in America. The police are on edge now and look at citizens as potential threats. I was pulled over a few months ago and I opened my door so I could get to my wallet. Immediately, the policeman yelled, “Stay in the car, close your door!” If they perceive us as a threat, then this will only further the same feeling on the opposite side. Do you have to ask permission to get your wallet out of your back pocket?
Obama said, “We need to temper our words and open our hearts — all of us.” He went on to say, “Nothing justifies violence against law enforcement.” These meaningless words are very elitist and deny history.
This issue was precisely one of the causes of the American Revolution and Thomas Jefferson included it in the Declaration of Independence. In the Declaration of Independence, Jefferson included protecting agents of the government for murder. “For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States.”
Sorry, but unless the government abandons this policy of protecting their own at all costs, they are feeding the very human discontent that leads to violent revolution. They are incapable of understanding the root causes of political unrest. This is seemingly an inevitable part of the cycle we are in — the escalation of civil unrest.

America Is Being Divided And Conquered Into Oblivion

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-07-19/america-being-divided-and-conquered-oblivion

 "The single event that changed my life more than any other was TARP, aka the banker bailouts. The unfairness, extreme greed and selfishness with which the status quo bailed out financial criminals while leaving the public high and dry changed me forever. When it comes to shaping American history, it is equal in importance to the attacks of 9/11. I couldn’t contemplate why government officials were putting so much money and energy into bailing out people like me, while ignoring everyone else. It felt irrational, unethical and dirty."
