Foreign nationals arrested in Iowa for voting in the Iowa Presidential election on Nov. 6th.


3 more election fraud cases filed

More arrests could come as the state checks a list of people who might have registered to vote without citizenship.

Posted: Friday, November 23, 2012 12:00 am | Updated: 6:09 am, Fri Nov 23, 2012  TH Online.com.

DES MOINES -- A citizen of Bosnia and two Canadian citizens have been charged with election fraud and fraudulent practices for allegedly registering and voting in Iowa without U.S. citizenship.

 

The Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation said it issued a citation to appear in court for 28-year-old Tehvedin Murgic, of Clive. The DCI said he is a citizen of Bosnia and registered and voted on Nov. 2, 2010.

Murgic's attorney did not immediately return a call.

Arrest warrants were issued for 66-year-old Laurie McCarroll and 53-year-old Leonard Blower, both of Shenandoah. The DCI said they are Canadian citizens who registered and voted in a school election in September 2011. The DCI said it believes they are no longer living in the United States.

Their cases were not listed on Iowa online court records.

Iowa's top elections administrator is vowing to continue to ferret out fraud and to push lawmakers for a voter ID law.

Secretary of State Matt Schultz said the voter fraud cases resulting in arrests so far are only the beginning.

Schultz said it's likely more arrests will come as the Iowa Criminal Investigation Division works through a list of more than 1,200 people he believes registered to vote without citizenship.

The widespread number of irregularities, illegalities and impossibilities in the vote tallies require investigation to prevent future fraudulent elections.


WND EXCLUSIVE

Congress urged: Investigate vote fraud now

Does America still have free, fair and accurate elections?

Published: 12 hours ago

GOP poll inspectors illegally removed from voting locations.

More than 100 percent of registered voters turning out to vote.

Computers reverting to a default Obama vote, regardless of whom the voter selects.

Absentee ballots counted while neutral observers are blocked from supervising.

Military ballots not delivered on time to active-duty servicemen and women around the world.

Illegal campaign contributions, deceased and illegal-alien voters, “lost ballots” and intimidation at the polls.

It’s enough to make voters ask: Does America still have free, fair and accurate elections?

After witnessing a flood of reports detailing incidents of likely vote fraud and abuse this election, WND has launched a petition urging Congress to open an independent and comprehensive investigation.

As WND reported, the “battleground” states seemed to initially be pulling toward Romney. But then the reports of voting irregularities started leaking out, then gushing out – like the 59 different Philadelphia voting divisions in which Mitt Romney received zero votes compared to Obama’s 19,605. And the Cleveland precinct in which Obama beat Romney 542 to 0. (In fact, Romney received zero votes in nine Cleveland precincts.) And in one Ohio county – widely considered ground zero for the election – Obama received 106,258 votes from 98,213 eligible voters – an impossible 108 percent of the vote.

And that was just the beginning.

WND compiled a long list of reports documenting voting irregularities and apparent fraud during the 2012 presidential tabulation.

A poll watcher told WND up to 10 percent of the ballots cast at a polling station in Pennsylvania reverted to a default, which gave Barack Obama a vote no matter who the voter had selected. The incident took place in the state where officials claimed Obama got a total of 19,605 votes in 59 voting divisions to zero for Mitt Romney and not far from the 100 precincts in Ohio where Obama got 99 percent of the vote, a feat not even achieved by Third-World dictators. It was in Upper Macungie Township, near Allentown, Pa., where an auditor, Robert Ashcroft, was dispatched by Republicans to monitor the vote on Election Day. He said the software he observed would “change the selection back to default – to Obama.”

Chicago elections worker Steve Pickrum told WND as an equipment manager for the elections system, he was called when a voting machine malfunctioned. “On early voting when I did work on the floor when voters needed help using the equipment, I was able to see the preference of the voter, and every time that I saw [a] voter voted for Romney a ‘voter save failure’ message came up on the screen,’” he reported.

Then when he went on Election Day to vote himself, he picked Romney and experienced the same error message. He reported he never experienced the error message when the voter was choosing Barack Obama.

Another poll worker, this one assigned at the University of Michigan, reported to WND a list of irregularities, including that the precinct captain told her at one point, “You go sit down, you are bothering me,” when she was trying to observe the proceedings.

“I was only standing there and looking at voter documents,” she told WND. “It was clear that what bothered him was my very presence.”

And in Florida, the Sun Sentinel reported that election workers a week after the election said they found 963 unaccounted-for ballots – in a warehouse.

Meanwhile, the Department of Justice under Attorney General Eric Holder has refused to prosecute the most egregious case of voter intimidation in modern times, that of club-wielding New Black Panther Party members in camouflage fatigues standing in front of the door of a Philadelphia polling place in 2008.

The Justice Department has insisted on legally challenging states that have attempted to institute basic voter-ID laws to assure fair and accurate elections by verifying the identity of those voting.

Just before the election, a WND investigation proved Obama’s presidential re-election campaign repeatedly accepted illegal foreign donations – specifically, credit card donations made from a foreign (Pakistani) IP address and proxy server in the name of “Osama bin Laden.” WND’s complaint is now being probed by the Federal Elections Commission.

For these reasons, WND’s petition states:

We, the undersigned, strongly request that Congress immediately undertake a full and impartial investigation into the multiplicity of issues serving to degrade America’s historically free and fair election system, thereby dangerously eroding citizens’ belief their vote counts and that elections are meaningful. Should the widespread belief that our elections are corrupt (as in some Third World nations) ever take hold in America, chaos and anarchy will undoubtedly follow. Therefore, it is of the very highest importance that Congress take the necessary steps to assure that America’s elections are accurate and fair, and without even a hint of fraud or corruption.

Sign WND’s petition urging Congress to investigate fraud and abuse in America’s election system!

The idea of a satellite based power source/weapon in space able to focus energy on earths' surface is not new to Mr. Obama. Since the end of WWII the idea has been proposed to beam micro waves to surface based electrical distribution stations. A very large solar reflector on the order of miles in diameter had been described for providing extra sunlight to nighttime or cold regions on the surface or to focus sunlight in an intense beam for destructive purposes.

The first "Star Wars" type "Death Star" was planned though not executed by the Nazis in the waning days of WWII. The German rocket scientists who would soon be working on the US space program saw the high frontier as both a military and exploratory objective. Werner von Braun had openly discussed rocket propelled journeys to the moon prior to WWII. Other early German rocketeers had the same dream. At the time these were science fiction schemes and the only funding large enough came from the military. Von Braun wanted to go to into space but as Churchill once said he "aimed at the moon but hit London instead". Von Braun achieved the rank of major in the Nazi SS by wars' end.

This was the begining of the modern relationship between space, scientists and the military. The Nazis had the goal of world domination by military means. This kind of weapon, based in space and inaccessible from earth, able to reach most of the planets' surface or all of it with multiple weapons, could be fired with much less expense, inefficiency and hardware than hundreds of aircraft or thousands of troops. It was the megalomaniacs dream come true, the tool of the James Bond super villain long before Ian Fleming wrote his first book.

This kind of weapon is well within the technology and capability of 2012. It could be built, placed in orbit and brought to full operational capability. This would require your participation as US taxpayers, perhaps more than once since several satellites would be needed to provide complete planetary defense or complete planetary control  ---- depending on your point of view.

Imagine if you can, that once we (US Taxpayers) funded this project that a few years later control of the satellites would be given to a world organization like the UN.


THE FINAL FRONTIER

Will Obama build a Death Star next?

White House urged to construct 'Star Wars' space battle station

Published: 3 hours ago

It sounds like a case of “May the farce be with you,” but at this moment, in a galaxy not far away, there is a real-life petition on a White House website pushing for the funding and construction of a Death Star like the one featured in the “Star Wars” film saga.

The fully armed and operational Death Star from the "Star Wars" film saga was powerful enough to destroy an entire planet.

The specific petition is on the White House’s “We the People” site, and states:

We petition the Obama administration to: Secure resources and funding, and begin construction of a Death Star by 2016.

Those who sign here petition the United States government to secure funding and resources, and begin construction on a Death Star by 2016.

By focusing our defense resources into a space-superiority platform and weapon system such as a Death Star, the government can spur job creation in the fields of construction, engineering, space exploration, and more, and strengthen our national defense.

In the “Star Wars” movies, the Death Star was an armed battle station in space that produced enough concentrated firepower to instantly destroy a planet.

So far, there’s no official response from the White House, but there could be one should the petition collect 25,000 signatures by mid-December. As of Monday afternoon, more than 800 people signed the online measure.

Interestingly, one of the names on the petition is “Darth V.” from Burlington, N.C., who signed the measure Dec. 1.

Darth Vader is the legendary character from “Star Wars” who was the father of Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia, and was seduced to the “dark side of the force.”

History Repeats But Everyone Has Forgotten

“The supreme law of the State is self-preservation at any cost. All States, ever since they came to exist upon the earth, have been condemned to perpetual struggle — a struggle against their own populations, whom they oppress and ruin. A struggle against all foreign States, every one of which can be strong only if the others are weak. And since the States cannot hold their own in this struggle unless they constantly keep on augmenting their power against their own subjects as well as against other States, it follows that the supreme law of the State is the augmentation of its power to the detriment of internal liberty and external justice.” — Mikhail Bakunin, The Immorality of the State, 1870

California Federation of Teachers Promotes Marxist Ideology

If you had any reservations about the claim that the leadership of California Teachers' organizations have become a Marxist-Communist front group then this convincing video produced by the California Federation of Teachers (CFT.org) will prove the point beyond doubt.

Place yourself in the mind of 12 year-old, ...hmmm... make that a 9 year-old, spell-bound by the simplistic oratory of an all knowing, rather autocratic teacher-indoctrinator. All of the complicated economic and political events of the last 4 years are explained in a fairy tale only a few hundred words long, though with some inconvenient truths inexplicably missing. There are the good people, two working women (which look very teacher-ish) and one man --- a street bum. There are the bad people, a rich man millionaire and his dummy, a male politician.

Once upon a time, in a land far away, everyone was happy. The poor bum paid a little bit in tax, the middle class teacher-ish women paid more and the rich upper-upper class millionaire paid much, much more. Everyone smiled wide smiles upon giving money to the tax-woman. Yes, children, paying taxes made people happy in that land (galaxy?) far away.

The people were happy because they taxes paid for (you guessed it) wonderful schools, which taught (indoctrinated) children just like you with teachers just like (hard-Leftist) Ed Asner. Taxes paid for other things too, policemen, firemen, garbage-men, and ....ummmm public parks. That's all there was in the economy of that happy land far, far away, except for Real Estate (heavily mortgaged) and one character introduced later, a Wall Street Banker.

So children, if your daddy or mommy was/is an engineer or accountant or physician, or mechanic or construction worker, pilot, butcher, realtor, real estate re-habber, tuna fisherman, farmer, attorney, factory worker, actor, prison warden, oil driller, retailer, wholesaler, physicist, chemist, dentist, soldier, sailor, airman or marine ... then I'm sorry children, but your parents weren't included in that happy economy far, far away.

The happy land became unhappy all of a sudden one day when the millionaire man decided to keep more of the money he made from his ....ummmm... (Ed never really explained how the millionaire made his money) oh well back to the story. The greedy, overweight, cigar smoking, millionaire man just wanted more money children, that's just how they are.

I won't ruin the ending for you but just note that Ed concludes the fairy-tale without ever once mentioning the $Billions of school bond indebtedness funded by Calif. taxpayers, or the role of the Federal Government, Fannie, Freddie, Federal Reserve, Treasury, exploding Federal deficit, bloated and protected Federal and State bureaucracies or 30 years of declining public school test scores and rising $Billion budgets since the founding of the Federal Department of Education.

Denninger Expects Market "Dislocations"


Mr. Denninger uses an anti-septic word for severe price declines in the near future. This is a very brief interview for the width of economic connections he presents. He is very clear, brief and to the point, something unusual in economics. If you have Federal debt questions, gold, medical concerns, real estate, stocks or bonds or employment obstacles or wonder if our energy needs can be solved (they can) then watch. This interview was filmed in San Diego county early last month at an international seminar hosted by Casey Research.

Mr. Denninger may challenge your preconceived notions, this could cause discomfort to some. Viewer discretion applies.

Politics Takes A Bite Out of Rosy California Budget Predictions

Corporate Tax Revenue Plunges 213.4% in November

A press release by the State Controller’s office this week revealed an unsurprising drop in state revenues, 10.8 percent below projections contained in the 2012-13 State budget, a total of $806.8 million.

“November’s disappointing revenues stand in stark contrast to recent news that California is leading the nation in job growth, has significantly improved its cash liquidity to pay bills, and even long-distressed home values are starting to inch upward,” said Chiang.  “This serves as a sobering reminder that, while the economy is expanding, it is doing so at a slow and uneven pace that will require the State to exercise care and discipline in how its fiscal affairs are managed in the coming year.”

According to the release, tax revenues from both personal income taxes and corporate taxes fell during the month of November. Revenue generated by personal income came in 19 percent below projections, a total of $842.5 million. Corporate tax revenue was down by $187.8 million, or a whopping 213.4 percent. The only revenue that exceeded projections was sales taxes, at $99 million, and was not nearly enough to offset the missed budget estimates.

The State Controller’s office claims that a portion of the drop in corporate tax revenues was due to “higher than expected corporate tax refunds,” but it looks like Californians are simply escaping this strangling economic environment by packing up and moving their businesses out of state. Spectrum Location Solutions reported that 254 companies left California in 2011, possibly the biggest reason for any decline in corporate tax revenue. Earlier in January, corporate tax revenues had fallen by 48.8 percent. Corporate tax receipts were down in October as well, missing projections by 47 percent. Now, that number has fallen by 213.4 percent, and will only continue to drop as more people migrate out of the state.

California has successfully reached a $24.9 billion cash deficit, up from $9.6 billion from the last fiscal year. That deficit is being covered by $14.9 billion of internal borrowing via “temporary loans from special funds,” and $10 billion of external borrowing. The state has nearly $25 billion in outstanding loans, with only $7 billion left in unused internal borrowable resources. After that $7 billion is used up, California will have to turn to external resources to borrow even more money.

The fiscal cliff for the country is rapidly approaching, but it appears that bankruptcy for California looms ahead as well. Cities are filing for bankruptcy one by one, from Stockton to San Bernardino. The state’s spending binge on subpar public services and government employee compensation has grown out of control, and it’s only a matter of time before we reach rock bottom.

What an informative interview!!!  That organized my thoughts on several things.

Potential thorium use in nuclear reactors, was a surprise. 

The three real wealth creators:  mining, manufacturing, or growing something.

So what about investors?  Look for special circumstances; housing markets that are beaten down and mis-priced in relation to their relative value.

In other words, "Buy low and sell high!"  Or "Buy what nobody else can, or will.  Improve it, and then hold, or flip." 

Sounds like a plan to me!

Did Iceland make the right move on the 2008 financial crisis and all the other nations the wrong move? Perhaps so. Now Iceland has gone through the pain of a 90% stock market collapse, a 900% increase in unemployment and 18% inflation to emerge in a real recovery.

Bankruptcy and criminal charges in place of bailouts were part of the Icelandic twist.


Guest Post: The Icelandic Success Story





Submitted by John Aziz of Azizonomics

The Icelandic Success Story

Emotionally, I love Iceland’s financial policies since the crash of 2008:

Iceland went after the people who caused the crisis — the bankers who created and sold the junk products — and tried to shield the general population.

But what Iceland did is not just emotionally satisfying. Iceland is recovering, while the rest of the Western world — which bailed out the bankers and left the general population to pay for the bankers’ excess — is not.

Bloomberg reports:

Few countries blew up more spectacularly than Iceland in the 2008 financial crisis. The local stock market plunged 90 percent; unemployment rose ninefold; inflation shot to more than 18 percent; the country’s biggest banks all failed.

This was no post-Lehman Brothers recession: It was a depression. 

 

Since then, Iceland has turned in a pretty impressive performance. It has repaid International Monetary Fund rescue loans ahead of schedule. Growth this year will be about 2.5 percent, better than most developed economies. Unemployment has fallen by half. In February, Fitch Ratings restored the country’s investment-grade status, approvingly citing its “unorthodox crisis policy response.”

So what exactly did Iceland do?

First, they create an aid package for homeowners:

To homeowners with negative equity, the country offered write-offs that would wipe out debt above 110 percent of the property value. The government also provided means-tested subsidies to reduce mortgage-interest expenses: Those with lower earnings, less home equity and children were granted the most generous support.

Then, they redenominated foreign currency debt into devalued krone, effectively giving creditors a big haircut:

In June 2010, the nation’s Supreme Court gave debtors another break: Bank loans that were indexed to foreign currencies were declared illegal. Because the Icelandic krona plunged 80 percent during the crisis, the cost of repaying foreign debt more than doubled. The ruling let consumers repay the banks as if the loans were in krona.

 

These policies helped consumers erase debt equal to 13 percent of Iceland’s $14 billion economy. Now, consumers have money to spend on other things. It is no accident that the IMF, which granted Iceland loans without imposing its usual austerity strictures, says the recovery is driven by domestic demand.

What this meant is that unsustainable junk was liquidated. While I am no fan of nationalised banks and believe that eventually they should be sold off, there were no quick and easy bailouts that allowed the financial sector to continue with the same unsustainable bubble-based folly they practiced before the crisis (as has happened throughout the rest of the Western world).  

And best of all, Iceland prosecuted the people who caused the crisis, providing a real disincentive (as opposed to more bailouts and bonuses):

Iceland’s special prosecutor has said it may indict as many as 90 people, while more than 200, including the former chief executives at the three biggest banks, face criminal charges.

 

Larus Welding, the former CEO of Glitnir Bank hf, once Iceland’s second biggest, was indicted in December for granting illegal loans and is now waiting to stand trial. The former CEO of Landsbanki Islands hf, Sigurjon Arnason, has endured stints of solitary confinement as his criminal investigation continues.

 

That compares with the U.S., where no top bank executives have faced criminal prosecution for their roles in the subprime mortgage meltdown. The Securities and Exchange Commission said last year it had sanctioned 39 senior officers for conduct related to the housing market meltdown.

Iceland’s approach is very much akin to what I have been advocating — write down the unsustainable debt, liquidate the junk corporations and banks that failed, disincentivise the behaviour that caused the crisis, and provide help to the ordinary individuals in the real economy (as opposed to phoney “stimulus” cash to campaign donors and big finance).

And Iceland has snapped out of its depression. The rest of the West, where banks continue to behave exactly as they did prior to the crisis, not so much.

That Denninger guy assumed the audience was literate in economics and statistics.  So, that left me looking for a dictionary.

He said so many important things that I'm having to go repeat the video to begin comprehending and absorbing all  what he's said.

One striking thing I did get (in not so many words) was that a Thorium-based nuclear reactor, not only creates more 'usable' heat, that is more efficient and cheaper than the current fissionable materials, but we've got enough of it to power the entire nation for TEN THOUSAND YEARS...!  This a a MUCH safer alternative.

What's really astonishing is that we were first to try this out and discover it's efficiency and safety, but we rejected it, because the byproducts weren't  helpful to our nuclear armament efforts.  Really?  Being completely off the international grid for 'any' energy source whatsoever, wasn't/isn't worth building?

With this technology (perfected by Germany, and actually being built and used in South Africa) we could produce enough cheap energy to cheaply create fuel for hydrogen vehicles, and fairly eliminate 95% of emission from our cars.  Why isn't that a worthy goal?

Are we so choked by environmentalist wackos that we'll let 3rd world nations emerge as the first users of this terribly efficient, cheap and safe energy source?

Exactly  - I was going to make a similar comment on the first post. He's definitely worth a second viewing. He has condensed a lot of useful info and strategies in a brief interview, very organized.

One striking thing I did get (in not so many words) was that a Thorium-based nuclear reactor, not only creates more 'usable' heat, that is more efficient and cheaper than the current fissionable materials, but we've got enough of it to power the entire nation for TEN THOUSAND YEARS...!  This a a MUCH safer alternative.

Yes, most of the heat, 2/3, generated by conventional nuclear power facilities goes into the ocean to keep the reactor cooled. Thorium reactors if I recall him correctly only reach a temperature around 500 degrees. The thorium is in the coal so the T-reactors could drive power requirements for the conversion of coal to kerosene, diesel and gasoline. The Fischer-Tropse process developed in Nazi Germany would convert the coal. Sasol in Brazil may be using it. The US built such a plant in Missouri after WWII, the economics weren't right with the large US oil reserves at that time, or it may have been the design or management of the plant.

The growing understanding of the natural abiotic creation of petroleum along with all the new oil fields discovered in the US and elsewhere removes some of the urgency for employing the method Denninger describes. There is and will be plenty of cheap energy but the fossil theory (first promoted by John D. Rockefeller) has been put on temporary life support by the Green movements' energy scarcity propaganda.

What's really astonishing is that we were first to try this out and discover it's efficiency and safety, but we rejected it, because the byproducts weren't  helpful to our nuclear armament efforts.  Really?  Being completely off the international grid for 'any' energy source whatsoever, wasn't/isn't worth building?

At the end of WWII there was plenty of oil and everyone knew it, the US was a big exporter. Energy wasn't a scarce commodity. No one then had witnessed the tragic failures of nuclear power plants that happened 30 years later.

There is an expense in gathering and enriching enough thoruim to sustain a nuclear chain reaction. I'm guessing the thorium content of a ton of coal is probably a small fraction of an ounce. Uranium is very difficult to concentrate into a large enough amount for a self-sustaining bomb reaction. It took the US years to produce a few kilos in WWII. It was this tedious process that made uranium power reactors so attractive. One of the decay products of a uranium controlled chain reaction is plutonium which is also an effective nuclear bomb material.

With this technology (perfected by Germany, and actually being built and used in South Africa) we could produce enough cheap energy to cheaply create fuel for hydrogen vehicles, and fairly eliminate 95% of emission from our cars.  Why isn't that a worthy goal?

Well --- mainly because of the Hindenberg, that large hydrogen filled dirigible that exploded in New Jersey in 1937. The storage of hydrogen as hydrazine may be one practical way for autos. On impact the hydrazine doesn't explode when contained in a special fuel cell.

Are we so choked by environmentalist wackos that we'll let 3rd world nations emerge as the first users of this terribly efficient, cheap and safe energy source? 

The environmentalists would find thorium a attractive alternative, if they knew about it.

Democrat operatives launch class-warfare website

'More of our elections going forward will feature' divisive tactic

Published: 23 hours ago

A George Soros-funded radical think tank with close ties to the Democratic Party has launched a new website urging politicians and activists to wage class warfare while hailing what it calls a new era in politics – the use of class warfare to win elections.

WageClassWar.org was launched last week by the Campaign for America’s Future, or CAF.

CAF’s co-director, Robert Borosage, explained the need for such a website.

“America’s growing diversity and its increasingly socially liberal attitudes played a big role in this election. But looking back, we are likely to see this as the first of the class warfare elections of our new Gilded Age of extreme inequality,” he wrote in a statement.

“More and more of our elections going forward will feature class warfare – only this time with the middle class fighting back. And candidates are going to have to be clear about which side they are on,” he wrote.

Continued Borosage: “In 2012, candidates who supported the economic interests of the many over the few won their elections. Populism was the voice, but economic opportunity was the message. The pundits may wring their hands, but in the future it won’t be values voters, angry white men or soccer moms that win elections. It will be class war.”

The website does not feature a mission statement and is unclear about exactly how the group will go about attempting to wage class warfare.

The site explains how Obama’s 2012 campaign utilized class warfare and set the stage for the deployment of such tactics in future elections.

“Obama’s campaign built its message on class war battles that broke out in the Republican primary, as challengers sought to bring down ‘the main from Bain,’ Mitt Romney,” notes the site.

“In the end, the keys to Obama’s reelection were his calls for raising the taxes of the wealthy and his support for reinvesting those revenues in education and jobs to rebuild the middle class and to protect programs like Medicare from cuts.”

The site hails how Obama repeatedly portrayed Romney as a “walking example of the out-of-touch elite, an opponent of the auto industry bailout that saved an entire manufacturing sector, and a 1 percenter who would jeopardize social programs, education, and Medicare in order to cut taxes on his rich friends.”

CAF writes that Obama’s reelection now sets the stage “for class warfare as a potent and necessary tool to promote rebuilding the economy from the bottom up, rather than perpetuate the right wing’s failed trickle-down policies.”

Occupy, Soros, Democratic Party

WND previously reported how CAF has partnered with Occupy.

CAF is funded by Soros’ Open Society Institute as well as by the Soros-funded Tides Center, which channels funding to hundreds of progressive and far-left groups.

Tides has been connected to the Occupy movement since its beginning.

Another grantee of Tides is Adbusters magazine, which is reported to have come up with the Occupy Wall Street idea after “Arab Spring” protests toppled governments in Egypt, Libya and Tunisia. The Adbusters website serves as a central hub for Occupy’s planning.

MoveOn.org, which has joined Occupy, is funded by Tides. CAF’s board of directors includes MoveOn.org President Eli Pariser.

CAF’s co-founder and director Roger Hickey, who also co-founded the Soros-funded Economic Policy Institute, was reportedly heavily involved in crafting the foundations for President Obama’s health-care law.

CAF campaigns for universal health care, immigration reform and progressive education initiatives.

CAF is deeply tied to progressive politicians from the Democratic Party, many of whom routinely are featured at CAF events.

Just last year, Nancy Pelosi was the featured speaker at CAF’s “America’s Future Now” conference in Washington, D.C.

In 2008, Rep. Jan Schakowsky, D-Ill., was honored at CAF’s annual dinner for her “advocacy in Congress,” noted Discover the Networks.



FIFTEEN-YEAR CHESS GAME...

We are being out-negotiated and out-maneuvered by professional, thug-quality, leftist "community organizers."

These people look way ahead in their strategy.

The TEA Party and it's sympathizers better also understand this, and START THINKING AHEAD.  I mean 'way' ahead.  Otherwise, they will be relegated to pecking around the perimeter of the left's progress, and literally lose more ground than was lost in November.

Conservatives cannot win by getting along with socialists. They can, however, win by offering what Ronald Reagan offered; appeal to our national pride, traditional values, a vision for the future, and the promise of prosperity.

Neither candidate for POTUS offered this in 2012.

However, Obama went for broke (early) by negatively 'defining' Romney as a thief, a killer, a tax-evader, and a woman-hater.  The low information voters evidently believed it, and encouraged enough GOP voters to, otherwise, stay home.

Before this, Romney's machine successfully took rib spreaders to Gingrich, Santorum, and Bachman and cut their hearts out, like we haven't seen in recent years.

However, what did Romney did, after he eliminated the conservative opposition, was laughable.  He began referring to Obama as a, "...nice guy, that was just over his head." Really?  Yup.

Obama has NOT been over his head, as either a negotiator, or a political force. So, let's stop the dreaming and eternal hope that somehow people will 'get' that.  It's not going to happen.  The fact is, Mr. Boehner is an incompetent negotiator, or he's sympathetic.  Either way, conservatives are screwed. 

The more important fact is that Obama is operating on a 15-year strategy, that outlives his presidency.  The GOP? They're going month-to-month.

Worse, the establishment GOP doesn't really object to Obama's ultimate goals, they just want to share in control of it all. Thus we have Boehner soft-balling tax increases to Obama, without 'any' fight whatsoever; not to mention purging TEA Party sympathizers from key positions and committees.


As a result, conservatives are having to first battle the GOP leadership, before they even think about battling Obama and his machine.

The GOP's desire to 'get along' with Democrats is, again, because the establishment GOP is effectively Democrat-lite.

However, there remains a persistent, growing conservative movement, and Obama is serious about cutting the head off its host, before it can fully mature.

That all said, Obama, and his party, set the GOP up for a fall with the 'sequestration' demand, two years ago, and then again, with the 'fiscal cliff' set-up.

Regardless of the outcome of the 'fiscal cliff' negotiations, the Democrats will be able to blame the GOP for every increase in taxes, it's abandonment of anti-tax pledges, and ultimately take credit for restoring tax cuts and a restoration of military spending. 

Obama wins either way.
 

So why not just diddle until the cliff is history?  There's no downside for the Democrats (or Obama, for that matter).


Why again? Because Boehner can't look far enough ahead to negotiate a stop sign; much less resist Statist solutions offered by Obama and his ilk and just get skunked repeatedly.

Boehner does not understand, nor care all that much (evidently), that Obama is striving for very long-term gains, using 2, 4, and 8-year plays.

This is a chess game for Obama. And he's very good at it.

And so Obama fairly out-maneuvers and outflanks GOP politically ...by such a margin that even with a terrible economy, no vision, high taxes, and a force-fed socialized health care program, the Democrats GAIN Senate seats, AND maintain the presidency.

It's time for conservatives to rethink the chess game, and look for moves at least 15 years ahead ...beyond their political lives.

In the interim, it means "organizing" the TEA Party base like 'there's no tomorrow' (which is likely, if the GOP leadership isn't supplanted by non-statists sympathizers, and constitutionalists), and push Boehner into retirement, asap.

It's really time to get serious about purging the GOP of Statists and Obama-lites.

Otherwise, we're gonna be playing 'catch up' with the Democrats until Moses comes back.

We've got to attack, undermine, and upset the socialists until they're asking for rape kits.

I think you are correct about this Jay ---- I hope this idea spreads.

Neither candidate for POTUS offered this in 2012.

Partially true, but the MSM was indispensable in magnifying Romneys' flaws and ignoring Obamas'.

Obama has NOT been over his head, as either a negotiator, or a political force.

I don't think this is accurate. Those who have been in negotiations with the President have described him as making a demand and then just leaving the meeting. In other words his negotiating style is dictatorial.

For this President it is easy to negotiate this way. Alinsky is his guidepost, chaos and crisis are his tools to gather more power in the Presidency and Federal Government. Look at this from a narcissists' view. No matter what happens to the outside world Mr. Obama knows he will have a salary for life and a free $35 million Hawaiian mansion. If the country goes off the "Fiscal Cliff" it won't have any effect on him or his family. Obama is a dictatorial negotiator because he really doesn't care what will happen to the US as long as he garners more power and makes America pay for slavery  --- again.

So, let's stop the dreaming and eternal hope that somehow people will 'get' that.  It's not going to happen.  The fact is, Mr. Boehner is an incompetent negotiator, or he's sympathetic.  Either way, conservatives are screwed.
 

Boehner is incompetent, worse he always caves-in to Democrat pressure.

The more important fact is that Obama is operating on a 15-year strategy, that outlives his presidency.  The GOP? They're going month-to-month.

Good point.

...

This is a chess game for Obama. And he's very good at it.

It's more like a rich kid with Lamborghini for his 16th birthday. He'll run it as hard he dares, ignore maintenance, show it off around the neighborhood then wreck it and his dad will buy him a new one.

And so Obama fairly out-maneuvers and outflanks GOP politically ...by such a margin that even with a terrible economy, no vision, high taxes, and a force-fed socialized health care program, the Democrats GAIN Senate seats, AND maintain the presidency.

True but this is where perception as opposed to reality is manufactured by the MSM to the Presidents' benefit. This creation of perception is also a result of K-12 indoctrination of current younger voters that prevents honest criticism of non-Caucasians under the banner of racism.

Don't overlook the effects of vote fraud at multiple levels and across many states as was documented in the earlier, "disappeared" thread. Uncle Joe Stalin had a saying: "It's not who votes that counts --- only who counts the votes."

It's time for conservatives to rethink the chess game, and look for moves at least 15 years ahead ...beyond their political lives.

In the interim, it means "organizing" the TEA Party base like 'there's no tomorrow' (which is likely, if the GOP leadership isn't supplanted by non-statists sympathizers, and constitutionalists), and push Boehner into retirement, asap.
...

very funny....

In the reddest of Marxist nations, North Koreans are conditioned to believe the late Kim Jung Il hit multiple consecutive holes-in-one and did not need to use the bathroom. The "cult of personality" is integral to Communist Partys' control over the populace.

If you took a vote today, the world's most popular Korean, by a landslide, would be PSY.

Democrat operatives launch class-warfare website

'More of our elections going forward will feature' divisive tactic

Published: 23 hours ago

A George Soros-funded radical think tank with close ties to the Democratic Party has launched a new website urging politicians and activists to wage class warfare while hailing what it calls a new era in politics – the use of class warfare to win elections.

WageClassWar.org was launched last week by the Campaign for America’s Future, or CAF.

CAF’s co-director, Robert Borosage, explained the need for such a website.

“America’s growing diversity and its increasingly socially liberal attitudes played a big role in this election. But looking back, we are likely to see this as the first of the class warfare elections of our new Gilded Age of extreme inequality,” he wrote in a statement.

“More and more of our elections going forward will feature class warfare – only this time with the middle class fighting back. And candidates are going to have to be clear about which side they are on,” he wrote.

Continued Borosage: “In 2012, candidates who supported the economic interests of the many over the few won their elections. Populism was the voice, but economic opportunity was the message. The pundits may wring their hands, but in the future it won’t be values voters, angry white men or soccer moms that win elections. It will be class war.”

The website does not feature a mission statement and is unclear about exactly how the group will go about attempting to wage class warfare.

The site explains how Obama’s 2012 campaign utilized class warfare and set the stage for the deployment of such tactics in future elections.

“Obama’s campaign built its message on class war battles that broke out in the Republican primary, as challengers sought to bring down ‘the main from Bain,’ Mitt Romney,” notes the site.

“In the end, the keys to Obama’s reelection were his calls for raising the taxes of the wealthy and his support for reinvesting those revenues in education and jobs to rebuild the middle class and to protect programs like Medicare from cuts.”

The site hails how Obama repeatedly portrayed Romney as a “walking example of the out-of-touch elite, an opponent of the auto industry bailout that saved an entire manufacturing sector, and a 1 percenter who would jeopardize social programs, education, and Medicare in order to cut taxes on his rich friends.”

CAF writes that Obama’s reelection now sets the stage “for class warfare as a potent and necessary tool to promote rebuilding the economy from the bottom up, rather than perpetuate the right wing’s failed trickle-down policies.”

Occupy, Soros, Democratic Party

WND previously reported how CAF has partnered with Occupy.

CAF is funded by Soros’ Open Society Institute as well as by the Soros-funded Tides Center, which channels funding to hundreds of progressive and far-left groups.

Tides has been connected to the Occupy movement since its beginning.

Another grantee of Tides is Adbusters magazine, which is reported to have come up with the Occupy Wall Street idea after “Arab Spring” protests toppled governments in Egypt, Libya and Tunisia. The Adbusters website serves as a central hub for Occupy’s planning.

MoveOn.org, which has joined Occupy, is funded by Tides. CAF’s board of directors includes MoveOn.org President Eli Pariser.

CAF’s co-founder and director Roger Hickey, who also co-founded the Soros-funded Economic Policy Institute, was reportedly heavily involved in crafting the foundations for President Obama’s health-care law.

CAF campaigns for universal health care, immigration reform and progressive education initiatives.

CAF is deeply tied to progressive politicians from the Democratic Party, many of whom routinely are featured at CAF events.

Just last year, Nancy Pelosi was the featured speaker at CAF’s “America’s Future Now” conference in Washington, D.C.

Reagan said a lot of nice things but more important to look what he did in reality. He started the trend of raising the debt ceiling by doing it 3 times and no, things were not rosy as he left office.

News on the European monetary situation has been ignored or buried depending on your view.
We gain a preview into Obamacare under a deflationary credit collapse that is now happening in Greece. Liquidity in Europe is disappearing. The ECB, European Central Bank, has applied all the Bernanke nostrums but liquidity and credit continue to decline.

This article is not for everyone. Remove rose-colored glasses before reading.

The Main Deflationary Event Is Underway

Some of our readers have been wondering why we spend so much time covering the situation in Europe. The relevance of the European situation is not perhaps immediately obvious to those geographically far removed, with a temptation to ascribe the problems of the European periphery to locally-specific conditions.

However, the global economy is exceptionally integrated, and what happens in one location all too readily leads to financial contagion - the spread of fear, from one asset class to another, or from one country to another in the case of sovereign debt risk.

Europe is the epicentre of phase II of the credit crunch, from which waves of financial contagion can be expected to emanate for the next several years. Several member states are effectively at, or near, sovereign debt default, with the potential to trigger credit events in the credit default swap market. Banks are over-leveraged, often highly disproportionate in comparison with their host economies and intertwined with the sovereign debt issue.

In many EU member states there are housing bubbles far larger than the American one that began to burst in phase I of the credit crunch (October 2007-March 2009). Bubbles in some states have already burst, while in other countries, housing markets are going illiquid and prices are beginning to decline. As the value of collateral falls, and economies slide deeper into recession and high unemployment, the leveraged debt will be unsupportable. Personal debt is often sky-high, even in countries which are currently considered wealthy and stable.

What is unfolding in Europe is highly relevant to the future of the whole global financial system, and where Europe is leading - into debt deflation, liquidity crunch and depression - many other countries will follow over the next few years. We are in the process of crashing our global operating system, as we did on a smaller scale in the 1930s. Our global credit bubble has peaked, and the debt created in the expansion years - excess claims to underlying real wealth - will not be able to be repaid.

The gargantuan pile of interlocking human promises will become nothing more than dashed expectations. The resulting credit collapse will crash both the money supply and the velocity at which the remaining money circulates in the economy, leaving too little money in circulation to support much economic activity. Credit bubbles bring forward demand by artificially stimulating it, but when they burst, the demand borrowed from the future must be repaid.

Under such circumstances, economic systems, both public and private, seize up. This is what we have been predicting at The Automatic Earth since its inception, and we are now watching it unfold. As we wrote back in June, we are already seeing what a liquidity crunch looks like in practice in places like Greece, where the creeping paralysis in essential services continues to spread:

In every one of Thessaloniki’s 13 hospitals, in Greece’s second largest city, doctors are “playing God,” as Leta Zotaki, head of the radiology service of Kilkis Hospital in the north of the city, puts it. "When we start running out of x-ray films, we have to decide who needs to be examined first; we trade with other hospitals or ask the patients to pay for the film,” explains this trade unionist, who saw her 4,000 euro salary cut by half, and whose night shift hours have not been paid since May.

Some nurses have put up a note on the door of one of the hospital rooms: "When visiting your relatives, don’t bring chocolates, buy them toilet paper,” the note reads. There is a shortage of everything: latex gloves, cold pads, reagents for blood tests and catheters. The only upshot is the fact that public hospital workers have not yet been laid off yet – like they have in other public service sectors. But the doctors who are leaving – who have either retired, or left for private hospitals or abroad – are not being replaced: in Kilkis, the number of doctors has gone from 160 to 125.

The single currency has acted as a straight-jacket, binding disparate economies together and treating them as equivalent from a risk perspective. Bond spreads reflected this perception from shortly after the introduction of the euro until the financial crisis of 2008, but the fiction of equivalence has since come under increasing pressure

The Main Deflationary Event Is Underway

Internal tensions have been building as the disparities between centre and periphery become increasingly apparent, and national interests increasingly diverge - not just between centre and periphery, but also between core states France and Germany. Germany preaches austerity for the periphery and suggests it for France, which resents the interference and makes a last futile attempt at stimulating growth in an era of deleveraging.

When national interests are paramount, there is no real defence of the collective, and when the pie is shrinking, rancorous internecine conflicts become increasingly probable. We are already seeing the blame game begin in earnest in Europe, notably on the European Day of Action on November 14th. The rest of the world does not appear to realize either how serious the situation in Europe is becoming, or that a similar dynamic will take hold in many other places.

...

Following a long series of limited and ineffective bailouts, the ECB has promised unlimited bond buying to support sovereign debtors (in exchange for a major hand over of sovereignty). Promises of unlimited intervention issue a challenge to markets to call the bluff, leaving a substantial vulnerability with no back up plan. In the not too distant future, the markets will be trying to discover where the real limits of intervention lie. Other countries, notably the US, which have made similar 'unlimited' promises, should take note. Nothing is ever truly limitless.

...

Governments and central banks are actually powerless to prevent an epic deleveraging. They may appear omnipotent during expansions and rallies, but this is an illusion. The lesson of history is that once a very large bubble has developed, generating excess claims to underlying real wealth for many years, those excess claims will be rapidly and messily extinguished in a period of deflation. Smaller bubbles may not exceed the capacity of a lender of last resort, but this one - the largest in human history - most certainly does. The fall, when it comes, will be one for the record books, as contractions are typically proportionate to the scale of the excesses in the preceding bubble era.

...

One look at the unedifying spectacle unfolding in the US in response to the looming fiscal cliff is enough to illustrate the petty powerlessness of governments. To review for non-Americans, the fiscal cliff refers to the expiration on January 1st 2013 of a $500 billion package of tax cuts and emergency spending measures amounting to perhaps 4% of GDP. A bipartisan agreement is necessary if the can is to be kicked further down the road. Another would be necessary to raise the debt ceiling again shortly afterwards. Of course achieving an agreement would amount to a temporary stop-gap measure rather than a solution, but it appears a highly polarized group of legislators might even be incapable of that.

The division between parties, and increasingly within, in the US is reminiscent of the divisions at the national level in Europe. When the pie is shrinking, the larger picture, and the interests of the larger group are lost. Functional entities are smaller than before, with narrower scope of interests and therefore much less overlap with each other. The Republican Party in particular is tearing itself apart over its recent election loss, and retreating into factionalism. Bipartisan compromise is rapidly becoming impossible in a highly charged political environment where compromise is seen as betrayal of partisan interests.

Fiscal tightening is inevitable this coming year in the US whether or not a deal is reached at the federal level. States and municipalities are also reaching limits, as we covered early last year, and many are on the verge of bankruptcy. They have made too many promises, and now those promises that cannot be kept, will not be kept. A wave of both public and private debt default at all scales is coming, and the US will be following Europe as liquidity crunch morphs into depression.

This is not what recovery looks like, either in the US or in Europe. Recovery will only be possible once deleveraging has run its course, and at this point it has barely begun. Quantitative easing has never made a meaningful difference to the real economy. The numbers, large as they appeared, were not significant in comparison with the outstanding debt, and funds were not being lent out. The fear has been that 'money printing' would lead to hyperinflation, but deleveraging can occur much more quickly than any central bank can monetize debt.


 

 
When bubbles burst, there is always an undershoot. 2008 was nothing more than a warning shot across the bow. The main deflationary event is underway, but has not yet reached a tipping point and substantial pick-up of momentum. It will do, and when it does, markets and economies could find themselves in freefall. Europe is leading the way this time. Others would do well to be forewarned.

OK, put it this way:  "Obama has successfully negotiated all he needs to, to successfully get his way, because Boehner can't negotiate his way through an open door." 

A five year old doesn't need to be sophisticated, or all that smart, in his negotiations.  He just needs to be loud, insistent, and have a tantrum here and there.  Eventually the co-dependent, if not character-challenged parent, will give in.  Why again?  Because the parent believes he will be loved ...by giving in to the spoiled brat.  

Boehner wants to be loved, and Obama knows it.  So, Obama just waits Boehner out, until he caves.  Evidently this isn't a hard task.


Obama could NOT pull this off against character-driven, conservatives.  And he hasn't been able to.  However, the conservatives have been run off, stymied, and undermined, one after the other, by the GOP itself.  So, it makes Obama's efforts all that more effortless.

Right now we've got Obama-lites arguing with Obama-heavies.  Either way, it's gonna be Obama's outcome.  Part of that outcome is to exploit the values-rift amongst Republicans, and cause them to self-destruct.  This 'is' happening as we speak with the removal of several conservatives from important committees and posts, just in the last month.

Meantime, Obama doesn't need to be a good negotiator.  He's facing a light-weight, values-neutral, RINO, that is aggressively chasing away Obama's 'worst' enemies, at the same time he enables the Obama agenda.

With no downside Obama can pick and flick Boehner like a booger on his middle finger.

OK, put it this way:  "Obama has successfully negotiated all he needs to, to successfully get his way, because Boehner can't negotiate his way through an open door." 

Right, that is an accurate view. If you remember about two years ago, right after Boehner became Speaker of the House, he and Obama negotiated at deal for $100 Billion in spending cuts. Boehner ended up with only $300 million in cuts, 1/3 of 1% of $100 Billion, then had the audacious stupidity to call it a good deal --- the best possible!

Obama on the other hand does what his staffers and left-wing advisers tell him, he presents the deal they create but doesn't have the knowledge or business acumen to negotiate beyond it. So he acts like a dictator, or perhaps is forced to act like one because of his inexperience. Fortunately he has an incompetent like Boehner on the other end that thinks 1/3 of 1% is a great deal.

Think of it as the two stooges with the unknown names in the smoke-filled back room driving the far left agenda over the goal line.

Boehner seems to be offering more resistance to Obama, we will only know for sure after the "fiscal cliff" deal is cut or aborted.


A five year old doesn't need to be sophisticated, or all that smart, in his negotiations.  He just needs to be loud, insistent, and have a tantrum here and there.  Eventually the co-dependent, if not character-challenged parent, will give in.  Why again?  Because the parent believes he will be loved ...by giving in to the spoiled brat.  

Most of the negotiating is done by the press which slants everything in the Presidents' favor. Boehner is painted as an obstructionist who wants to make rich people richer at the expense of poor people, and to eat children and kill old people in his spare time. Unfortunately we have a large segment of the voting population that is capable of believing this.

Boehner wants to be loved, and Obama knows it.  So, Obama just waits Boehner out, until he caves.  Evidently this isn't a hard task.

There is some truth in that. The Republicans have developed no effective counter-strategy to the biased reporting. They have no effective spokesman to handle the hostile press and show the fallacies in the Presidents' proposals.

Boehner and the other country-club Repubs just want to get along and take the slow path to tyranny rather than the Presidents' express lane. It's pitiful, humorous and alarming all at once.

One thing is clear, and has been clear for almost two years, Boehner is in way over his head too and should have been replaced long ago. He only got the Speakership job because of seniority, not ability.

Congress meets at the last minute to "solve" a previously "solved" problem. A year and a half ago the "Super Committee" met and resolved the National Debt Limit along with future spending and taxing. Yesterdays' "solution" is todays' "fiscal cliff".

Recall that last New Years Eve the President received another piece of heatedly debated legislation. He signed the NDAA provisions for the military to arrest US citizens without Habeas Corpus. So we should beware of any legislation that again comes before Congress on the approach of another New Years' surprise.

The Repeal of Habeas Corpus? When Free Speech No Longer Matters

On December 31, 2011, President Obama signed the Department of Defense Authorization Act into law. This is normally the routine annual budget for the Pentagon. But inserted into this year’s bill is language giving the president the authority to use the military to imprison terrorism suspects — including US citizens — indefinitely, and without charges.

In other words, the “great writ” of habeas corpus is in danger of repeal. No longer would the government have to justify to a judge why it holds someone in custody.

“Take away this great writ,” writes The Future of Freedom Foundation’s Jacob Hornberger, “and all other rights — such as freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom of the press, gun ownership, due process, trial by jury and protection from unreasonable searches and seizures and cruel and unusual punishments — become meaningless.”

Without habeas corpus, you could be thrown in prison for the “terrorist” act of criticizing the government and the government would never have to declare the precise reason it hauled you away. And in theory at least, the First Amendment would still be in force!

“This defense bill,” says The Rutherford Institute’s John Whitehead, “not only decimates the due process of law and habeas corpus for anyone perceived to be an enemy of the United States, but it radically expands the definition of who may be considered the legitimate target of military action.”

“This bill will not only ensure that we remain in a perpetual state of war — with this being a war against the American people — but it will also institute de facto martial law in the United States.”

Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Engineering is a Booming New College Major

Congress is worried about you, so like a dutiful parent (I know, it's a stretch) it wants to observe you, all for your own good --- mind you. There is a Federal appropriations bill that includes building about 36,000 aerial drones --- not for Afghanistan or Iraq but for you, the US taxpayer right here in the US of A. These aerial drones are a couple of steps away from the type used in Yemen/Sudan to dispatch the American Islamist Jehadi Alawahiry (and his vehicle) to the 72 virgins in the sky.

Some of the proposed drones will be used on the US-Mexico border (I know, another big stretch) though it's not clear if they will be detecting new Jehadis' and other illegals or directing them.

Congress may not be able to agree on the "fiscal cliff" solution but aerial drone spying on US citizens on US soil is a hit on both sides of the isle.

Eric Fry describes our Presidents' new cutting-edge employment opportunity for hungry, unwitting college grads who will do their best to tighten the noose on American Freedom.


Eric Fry Daily Reckoning 12/27/2012

“As the US Federal Aviation Administration prepares to let civilian unmanned aircraft operate in domestic airspace,” Bloomberg News reports, “universities including Embry-Riddle have created majors in flying and building drones...The drone industry, estimated worldwide at $5.9 billion annually, will expand to $11.3 billion by 2021, according to a report last year by the Teal Group Corp. of Fairfax, Virginia, which analyzes the industry. It’s ‘been the most dynamic growth sector of the aerospace industry this decade,’ the firm said in the report...

“The FAA is scheduled to release proposed rules later this year for allowing small drones to operate commercially in the US without special permission,” Bloomberg News continues. “Unmanned aircraft could be used for photography, police surveillance and monitoring pipelines and power lines. US Customs and Border Protection has special permission to use drones.”

Sure they could...and they could also be used for targeting and “neutralizing” threats like:

1) Suspected feral pigs
2) Suspected feral pig farmers
3) Suspected terrorists
4) Probable future terrorists
5) Colombian prostitutes who may possess classified information
6) People who act like they are guilty of something
7) People who gaze nervously towards the heavens
8) People who have difficulty speaking English
9) Other people who annoy us

With such an array of potential uses, is it any wonder that college kids have identified drone-anything as a growth industry?

“I like to be on the cutting edge,” one aspiring drone undergrad told Bloomberg News. “I think it’s just the beginning.”

So do we...

Unfortunately, Dear Reader, our story does not end there...

In yesterday’s edition of the 5-Minute Forecast, our colleague, Dave Gonigam, led his readers on a chilling tour through the place formerly known as “The Land of the Free.”

Here are a few highlights:
In the spirit of Patriots’ Day — the 237th anniversary of the Battles of Lexington and Concord that launched the American Revolution — we inventory a series of recent outrages.

Every new automobile sold in the United States come 2015 must be equipped with a “black box,” under the same odious legislation that links your passport to your back taxes.

(It’s called the “Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act,” or MAP-21 for short. Congressional aides get six-figure salaries to come up with this stuff.)

This way, if you’re involved in a crash, investigators will know, at minimum, the speed of the vehicles before impact... and whether everyone was wearing a seat belt.

“Coupled with GPS systems, the devices could provide the police with the ability to monitor private citizens’ movements in real-time,” says the law firm O’Reilly Collins in an analysis of the bill.

Of Pigs and Flying Drones

Eric Fry and his niece explain the humorous and chilling details.

Eric Fry Daily Reckoning 12/27/2012

... thanks to a new “Invasive Species Order” in the state of Michigan, numerous pig farmers have become potential felons. And the authorities are wasting no time bringing these outlaws to justice.

According to a story from NaturalNews, Michigan’s Department of Natural Resources “conducted two armed raids on pig farmers...one in Kalkaska County at Fife Lake and another in Cheboygan County...with the intent of shooting all the farmers’ pigs under a bizarre new ‘Invasive Species Order’ that has suddenly declared traditional livestock to be an invasive species.”

The Capital Account’s Lyster brought the story to our attention yesterday and, by a bizarre coincidence, your editor discovered shortly thereafter that his niece, Jennifer Fry, had covered the story earlier this week for the Pacific Legal Foundation.

Ms. Fry remarked:
Is it lawful to own a pig in Michigan? It depends what the pig looks like.

The Michigan Department of Natural Resources, a state administrative agency, has decided that certain breeds of swine must be eradicated in order to “stop the spread of feral swine and the disease risk they pose to humans, domestic pigs, and wildlife.” The problem is that, rather than focus on feral swine — the alleged source of the problem — the Department has issued an interpretive ruling so broad that any pig could qualify for destruction, including domestic farm animals.

Whether a pig is prohibited or not depends on eight physical characteristics, including the coloration of its bristles, coat coloration, underfur coloration, skeletal appearance, ear structure and “other characteristics not currently known to the [Department] that are identified by the scientific community.”

Rather than clarify the scope of this order, the Department has told individual farmers to bring in pictures of their pigs so the Department can decide, on a case-by-case basis, whether a pig must be destroyed. And any farmer found to possess a prohibited pig is subject to a felony conviction, two years in jail, and $20,000 in fines.

Mark Baker, an air force veteran and the owner of Bakers Green Acres Farm, filed a lawsuit challenging the Department’s order. Baker raises specific heritage breeds of hogs which he has chosen because they can withstand Michigan’s cold winters and because they are prized for their reddish-meat and high fat content by chefs and other gourmet food consumers. Now, because those breeds exhibit characteristics on the Department’s list, his entire operation is likely illegal under Michigan law; he expects the Department to show up at his farm any moment to destroy his animals and his livelihood.

Unsurprisingly, the Michigan Pork Producers Association — an organization whose members do not grow heritage pigs — supports the Department, which has allegedly assured the Association that its members’ operations will be exempt. It must be nice for large-scale producers who command enough political clout to simply outlaw their competition. Meanwhile, Mark Baker and other smaller-scale farmers must wait to see where the bureaucratic winds will blow.

As this episode highlights, administrative agencies constantly try to expand the scope of their jurisdiction to accumulate more and more power. Originally, Michigan’s Department of Natural Resources was limited to regulating hunting and fishing. Now, it points to certain state laws and executive orders as authorizing its “Invasive Species Order” to include hogs. Even though that order claims to exclude domestic hog production from its reach, it does not exclude those pigs, like Baker’s, which exhibit the characteristics on the Department’s list. According to State Senator Darwin Booher, this order threatens to shut down an estimated 2,000 small farms in his state.

At a time when more and more people are relying on government welfare programs, it is ironic and self-defeating that government should chose to undermine local economies and put self-sufficient farms out of business.
You see how easy it has become to be a felon? Almost anyone can do it...just by trying to run a business.

The saga of the felon pig-farmers is just one little piece of a very disturbing mosaic. The individual pieces differ, but together they form a horrifying image: Americans are forfeiting their personal liberties in the name of security and freedom.

The plight of the felon pig-farmers, therefore, is part of the very same trend that has spawned the bull market in drone surveillance. ... the bull market in drone surveillance has also spawned a kind of educational “drone rush.” College kids want to hitch their wagons to this booming growth industry.

World War II did not end as most of us have been taught. In Europe it may very well have ended in a secret compromise only recently come to light as 1940s British Intelligence papers became declassified in the mid and late 1990s. In May of 1945 the German Navy, Army and Air Force surrendered, but the Nazi party was not represented by its' top officials. Rumors have persisted for decades that they escaped to South America and elsewhere with great wealth and technology from the war.

The British kept many captured German physicists in Farm Hall, a very comfortable and very bugged English estate. Without any resort to torture the British recorded all the conversations that the physicists had with each other, as the Brits assumed they would have after months of captivity. A great deal was learned, so much so that the recordings were kept secret for 50 years. From those recordings now released we learn the Germans were much farther advanced in their nuclear weapons program than we thought. It was also learned the physicists had reservations about placing the technology in Nazi hands.

In short the Germans had enriched uranium but encountered the same expense and resource disadvantages as the US Manhattan project encountered. The Germans were prepared to step past the expensive fission bomb of the type used on Japan and move to the more destructive hydrogen fusion bomb, the H-Bomb, which was not perfected by the US till the early '50s.

This gives credence to the story of the U-234 German submarine which was captured by the US Navy in the last week of the war in Europe. The U-234 had special containers of enriched uranium enroute to Japan when the German U-boat commander decided to surrender to the US Navy in May of 1945. Two months later the US tested its' first Uranium bomb on the Trinity test site in New Mexico in July of 1945. One month later the US used the first Uranium bomb on Japan.

It has also come to light that the Japanese were farther along in their uranium bomb project because of Nazi assistance years prior to the capture of U-234. Japan conquered and occupied the entire Korean peninsula (what is now North and South Korea) and located their secret bomb project on the Yalu River near the Chosin reservoir in what is now North Korea. Recall that this part of North Korea would later become the site of fierce battle between US Marines and the Chinese Army during the Korean War. The Japanese may have tested a small uranium bomb in that area on August 12 1945.

All of these things mean there was extreme urgency in the latter months of the European war on the part of the US and British Intelligence to end the war before the costs could escalate to multiple nuclear combatants. This was the alleged basis of the "secret deal" for a Nazi escape at wars end.

Ian Fleming was a British Intelligence Officer in WWII and many of his post-war James Bond characters such as Goldfinger and Ernst Stavro Bloefeld had Nazi undertones. Likewise the quirky but brilliant director Stanley Kubrick produced the 1964 film "Dr. Strangelove" whose main character of that name had a spastic right arm that would jut out into a Nazi salute during moments of emotional stress. Peter Sellers the comedic British actor played the part in a very funny and very serious manner that only he could do well. The movie is about the post-war US military and implicates the American use of German scientists, many who remained Nazi after capture, in US space and defense organizations.

Mr. Wile has been a long time writer for the Daily Bell and is not given to fantasy. The article below by him makes references to connections that he may be unaware.


Elite Neo-Nazis ... Is Russia Today (RT) Part of the Controlled Media Matrix and the Imposition of Global Government?

Thursday, December 13, 2012 – by Anthony Wile  The Daily Bell

Anthony Wile

This is perhaps the biggest Trojan Horse-oriented story I may ever write.

I use the term "I" advisedly because much of what goes on here at The Daily Bell is a team effort. But it's my mug that goes on these editorials. And I stand behind them.

It is THE story The Daily Bell was created to write.

There is a storm coming. It is not hyperinflation I'm speaking of. It's not even global government.

It is the KIND of global government that is being created.

Follow along with me and you will understand EXACTLY what "they" are doing and how they intend to do it.

We arrive at these conclusions as we always do, using facts to intuit patterns.

The patterns are what we call the dominant social themes of the elite.

There are a number of recent patterns we've identified that we haven't been able to put into a fully cohesive order. That's how it is when you spend your time watching the top elites, the ones that control central banking and are worth collectively many TRILLIONS of dollars.

They are not exactly a different species. But F. Scott Fitzgerald had it right. The "rich" ... the REAL rich are different than you and me.

They spend their professional lives on elaborate plots that shake the world. They think nothing of displacing or even murdering mass numbers of people.

They plan inter-generationally. They operate an "open conspiracy." They control almost the entire world with the exception perhaps of Somalia, Yemen, Pakistan and Afghanistan. Only recently have they hammered Iraq and Libya and are in the process of instituting forced Islamic conformity in Syria – all under the cloak of instituting "democracy."

And now they are making their move. What we call the Internet Reformation has forced their hand, in my view.

They are moving quickly to create world government.

This article is about the KIND of world government they are creating.

I became aware of this while doing research on RT, rapidly emerging to join the world's leading TV and 'Net-based TV networks. I've appeared on RT but scaled back my appearances over the past year – despite very kind requests for interviews – because I was vaguely uncomfortable.

Now I know why.

What I discovered is that RT is part of a Hegelian Dialectic to implement a certain kind of world government. Top leaders of Russian-based media moguls affiliated with RT behind the scenes appear to come from the former KGB (along with Vladamir Putin). Additionally, they are members of the Council on Foreign Relations, the World Economic Forum, Chatham House and other elite facilities. That's a fact. Look it up.

And lately RT has begun using the language of Occupy Wall Street, apparently a George Soros-funded and controlled false-flag operation.

RT supports programs by Julian Assange, a former writer for the British Round Table (Rothschild) controlled Economist magazine, which used to award him prizes. WikiLeaks is probably another false flag, in our view.

RT, one of the fastest growing media conglomerates in the world, is a Russian Intel operation that puts libertarian faces on their channel for purposes of credibility, in my humble opinion. But it is not a free-market channel.

Yes, dear reader, I believe it is part of a pincer movement to create a certain kind of world government and simply another cog in the international media matrix – right up there with the CNNs and Fox News networks of the world. They are just playing at the margins – closest in appearance to free-market biased news reporting.

I am not going to appear on RT anymore. Libertarians and freedom-loving types in the alternative media should think hard before participating in RT programs, as well.

Leave RT appearances to the "other part" of the alternative media.

I won't name names, but strip out the libertarian appearances and you are left with a certain kind of "alternative media" guest.

– It is a guest raging against Wall Street, Goldman Sachs and the corruption of capitalism.

– It is a guest seeking government control of money.

– It is a guest who seeks to use the genocidal power of the US penitentiary Gulag to "punish" Wall Street bankers.

– It is a guest who seeks "control" of central banking rather than its downfall.

– It is a guest who would not be opposed to neo-Pecora hearings of the sort that started the full-fledged downfall of modern capitalism in the 1930s. These hearings are apparently already being prepared in the bowels of Washington DC committees.

These hearings are of integral importance because they will fully bring capitalism under control of the public sector. Today's Wall Street is bad enough. I have no sympathy for it. Henceforth, politicians will control all aspects of finance under the further control (at arm's length) of the top banking elites.

The government being formed in the US is the government that will rule the world. It will be run by the power elite from the City of London, the Vatican, Washington DC and probably Jerusalem with sub-nodes in Brussels, Moscow and Beijing.

All these entities shall be powers unto themselves, enclaves separate from the nation-states in which they reside.

The government now being formed will have a certain character.

– It will be a government where legalisms outweigh natural law.

– It will be globalist but highly nationalist in its vocabulary.

– It will be free-market in its positioning but in actuality, control will reside with the government itself when it comes to money and other issues of real import.

– It will control all aspects of people's lives including, most importantly, their consumption of energy.

Now that I understand RT's involvement, the strategy is clear. Just like the increasingly controlled non-libertarian and leftist portion of the alternative media, at least some of RT's rhetoric directly or indirectly bolsters efforts to:

– Undermine what is left of the capitalist system via Occupy Wall Street and other such movements.

– Jail the domestic banking class.

– Create a national central bank under control of the "people."

– Put money under control of the "government."

– Put industry under control of the government (see GM) but let it function with some day-to-day latitude.

– Elevate the status of the military and make a cult of its "heroes."

– Further develop an invasive security apparatus to protect people from "terrorism."

Are you getting the picture yet? All this is speculative but it fits together.

The government being formed is a totalitarian NAZI-style government. Not a communist one as people have been led to expect ... and fear.

And eventually, it will devolve into mere totalitarianism and even genocide.

But the "ism" is important for now because it is going to be how we will get there.

The totalitarian state is being built as I write. Over at LewRockwell.com, Paul Rosenberg recently posted an article entitled It's Happening Faster Than Even I Thought. It begins as follows:

2012 has been a banner year for amoral marketers and soul-dead overseers, and the situation is probably much worse than you realize. Allow me to illustrate it briefly:

  • The NSA is spying on every American, and very deeply spying on us.
  • A surveillance system has been installed inside of Facebook.
  • AT&T has been giving all of its Internet traffic to the NSA since at least 2006.
  • Union thugs have no problem intercepting emails.
  • Newspapers are having no problems intercepting emails.
  • Stores are now installing face recognition systems.
  • The FedGuv is paying big bucks for systems to "predict crime."
  • The FBI is building a nation-wide facial recognition system.
  • Biometric identification is being rolled out in grammar schools.

The power elite likes to work with opposites. Peace is war, prosperity is inflation, etc.

Nazi Germany has been pilloried in the West for 75 years. But it lives through the reflective political regime that is now being put into place in the US and eventually throughout the world.

It is the regime the power elite prefers because it maintains a pretense of capitalism within a government that is highly adaptable to the mercantilist control the power elite likes to exercise.

In other words, the elites shall run their neo-Nazi government behind the scenes. The only real difference will be that Hitler ran it out front. We've written about this National Socialist model here: Poison of Neo-National Socialist Public Banking. So has economist Gary North.

The current power elite was behind the rise of National Socialism in Germany. Swiss banks administered, sheltered and assisted in funding it. The US Bush family had some of its assets seized over support of Nazi Germany.

In a 2010 article entitled Cheerleader for Hitler's Economics, Gary North persuasively laid out the modern parallels between the government fiat-money crowd and pre-World War II boosterism for National Socialist economics. He writes:

Ellen Brown is a lawyer by profession, a Greenbacker by confession, and a fan of Adolf Hitler's economics by consistency.

She is quite open about her support for National Socialism's economics, as I shall demonstrate. What is depressing is this: she is getting a respectful hearing in Tea Party circles. Her book, The Web of Debt (2006), is widely cited on the World Wide Web. As of early October, 2010, a Google search for "Ellen Brown" and "Web of Debt" generated close to 600,000 hits. This is huge.

Here is a tactical problem. For two generations, conservatives have been shouted down by the Left with this accusation: "Fascist!" Ellen Brown is now making this accusation plausible. Yet the great irony is this: Ellen Brown is a Leftist. There is nothing even remotely free market or conservative about The Web of Debt. It is a call for a Federally funded welfare state. She praises the New Deal. She praises John Maynard Keynes. She has only one objection to their recommended programs: governments borrowed money to fund them. She wants a welfare state that is funded entirely by paper money printed by Congress. She is about as conservative as Nancy Pelosi.

It is this movement that RT seems to be covertly supporting. Were Gary North to write another article on the subject (he wrote so many so well that Ms. Brown refuses to debate him anymore), he might focus on how the power elite of the day was behind the rise of National Socialist economics in the US.

Personally, I'm no expert on the 1930s but I believe I can see elite handprints all over this modern-day revival.

For me, it is no coincidence that George W. Bush named his most invasive, anti-freedom security apparatus "Homeland Security" with its echoes of the "Fatherland." The Nazi model with its emphasis on eugenics and invasive state supervision of the private sector is the preferred model of the coming world government.

It will not be built upon a platform of the current regulatory democracy.

Nor will it be socialist.

Or communist.

Our overlords are planning global Nazism of the kind they first installed and then destroyed in Germany.

They are nearly there, in my view. China's model is already a Nazi one. Russia's, too, in many ways. The BRICs have similar models.

The EU has been compared to the USSR but Nazi Germany might be a better model.

We write a lot about the Internet Reformation here at The Daily Bell. My hope is that the free-flow of information will create a pushback that will disallow the creation of a global Nazi regime.

I'm doing my part by writing this article.

Sure, maybe it will go down the memory hole. But one day people will remember.

Make no mistake. It was the power elite that helped fund Hitler, just as the Internet has revealed to us that the West funded what became the Soviet Union.

The intergenerational power elite always has preparatory runs. But I think the future world government will be based on the Nazi model – if it gets that far. I hope it won't.

The same great families are now re-erecting what they first built in Europe 75 years ago. Oh, and please do not bother writing feedback asking us to list names. We do not do that here at The Daily Bell. However, feel free to search "who is the power elite" and you will undoubtedly find many suggestive answers. 

Let me add that it is truly difficult to write this editorial, as I enjoyed the people I met working with RT, especially their international news producer with whom I had regular contact. I have no doubt there are many genuinely well-meaning individuals working for RT. As with any big media organization, only the few at the top know the real agenda. But I cannot sit by silently and not share my opinion.

The Daily Bell is where I will continue to publish and share my thoughts.

Come hell or high water we will continue to spell out what we see as gross violations against individualism and humanity as a result of power elite manipulations.

Help spread the word about The Daily Bell. Let people know we know. Let THEM know.

They are deathly afraid of the Internet Reformation – or should be.

It is our hope. And yours, too.

This has such a familiar ring to it. Senator Feinstein please take note.

There is no murderer more effective than an unchecked dictatorship. Criminals murder hundreds, Communists and Fascists murdered 10s' of millions.

There is no perfect solution, but one is clearly better than the other. The Founders who wrote the Constitution knew this centuries before Lenin and Hitler. The Europeans had to learn this the hard way.

"The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to possess arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing. Indeed, I would go so far as to say that the supply of arms to the underdogs is a sine qua non for the overthrow of any sovereignty. So let's not have any native militia or native police. German troops alone will bear the sole responsibility for the maintenance of law and order throughout the occupied Russian territories, and a system of military strong-points must be evolved to cover the entire occupied country." --Adolf Hitler, dinner talk on April 11, 1942, quoted in Hitler's Table Talk 1941-44: His Private Conversations, Second Edition (1973), Pg. 425-426. Translated by Norman Cameron and R. H. Stevens. Introduced and with a new preface by H. R. Trevor-Roper. The original German papers were known as Bormann-Vermerke.
 

 
 
 

Nazi Weapons Act of 1938 (Translated to English)

  • Classified guns for "sporting purposes".
  • All citizens who wished to purchase firearms had to register with the Nazi officials and have a background check.
  • Presumed German citizens were hostile and thereby exempted Nazis from the gun control law.
  • Gave Nazis unrestricted power to decide what kinds of firearms could, or could not be owned by private persons.
  • The types of ammunition that were legal were subject to control by bureaucrats.
  • Juveniles under 18 years could not buy firearms and ammunition.

A Gun Control Law Passed by the German Government One Day After Kristallnacht

Regulations Against Jews' Possession of Weapons

11 November 1938

With a basis in §31 of the Weapons Law of 18 March 1938 (Reichsgesetzblatt I, p.265), Article III of the Law on the Reunification of Austria with Germany of 13 March 1938 (Reichsgesetzblatt I, p. 237), and §9 of the Führer and Chancellor's decree on the administration of the Sudeten-German districts of 1 October 1938 (Reichsgesetzblatt I, p 1331) are the following ordered:

§1
Jews (§5 of the First Regulations of the German Citizenship Law of 14 November 1935, Reichsgesetzblatt I, p. 1333) are prohibited from acquiring, possessing, and carrying firearms and ammunition, as well as truncheons or stabbing weapons.  Those now possessing weapons and ammunition are at once to turn them over to the local police authority.

§2
Firearms and ammunition found in a Jew's possession will be forfeited to the government without compensation.

§3
The Minister of the Interior may make exceptions to the Prohibition in §1 for Jews who are foreign nationals.  He can entrust other authorities with this power.

§4
Whoever willfully or negligently violates the provisions of §1 will be punished with imprisonment and a fine.  In especially severe cases of deliberate violations, the punishment is imprisonment in a penitentiary for up to five years.

§5
For the implementation of this regulation, the Minister of the Interior waives the necessary legal and administrative provisions.

§6
This regulation is valid in the state of Austria and in the Sudeten-German districts.
