Whew! Another Economic Close Call Avoided

Its over. Man, we got close that time. Our leader told us the worst is over and the recession is lifting AND we avoided a major depression.

Whew! Thank God we had him to ram rod all these wonderful, economy-saving techiques in place, eh?

One year ago, I took office amid two wars, an economy rocked by a severe recession, a financial system on the verge of collapse, and a government deeply in debt.  Experts from across the political spectrum warned that if we did not act, we might face a second depression.  So we acted -– immediately and aggressively.  And one year later, the worst of the storm has passed.

I want to say a couple of things here. First, the man voted FOR the freaking bailouts and has taken huge amounts of money from the very thieving assholes who did this to us. I will NOT allow you to say, “you inherited” shit, when you were complicit in its implementation. You have done nothing to stop those two wars and contrarily, have opened up even more avenues of death and carnage. The government debt is taken care of, isn’t it? By me and all my fellow Americans. Don’t take credit for shit that you and your corrupt bunch of thieving minions created and WE, the real Americans in this country, are paying for. We are not given hope by your false economic indicators, for we are living the truth, Mr Obama.

The Ivory Towers have no clue or you are a part of the devastation, so please, STFU about what you and your evil administration has done. You have done nothing but make the matter far worse, which makes me believe it is orchestrated and purposeful. You paid off the cronies from Wall Street and all those lobbyists that YOU said would never be a part of your administration.

Look, rednecks, evidence shows what an idiot or liar he is.

I can drive down any street in this town and see the devastation (businesses shut down, run down or at death’s door). I can read any article online, in print and, yes, even on the boob tube and see that this shit ain’t no where near over. It is just getting started.

The outcome of what appears to be the orchestrated game plan is to demolish the USA economy, take as much of the wealth from the mases as possible, depend upon the military to keep the debtors off our back and to make a huge run for all the resources in the world for us to TAKE and use and leave those people who own them destitute and/or dead (preferably). THIS IS THE APPEARANCE of things to me.

Now there may be some of you who still believe that the man is just doing the best he can with what he has to work with. To you, eat shit and grow up. Look at reality. Think back just a couple of years, listen to the words he said and then watch his actions. If you STILL think that motives are honorable, you are a fool and a real problem for America.

World Prout had the following article by The Economic Collapse that points out 11 signs that The Foundations of the US Economy have been Destroyed

#1) When even Wal-Mart is closing stores you know things are bad. Wal-Mart announced on Monday that it will close 10 money-losing Sam’s Club stores and will cut 1,500 jobs in order to reduce costs. So if even Wal-Mart has to shut down stores, what chance do other retailers have?

#2) Americans are going broke at a staggering pace. 1.41 million Americans filed for personal bankruptcy in 2009 – a 32 percent increase over 2008.

#3) American workers are working harder than ever and yet making less. After adjusting for inflation, pay for production and non-supervisory workers (80 percent of the private workforce) is 9% lower than it was in 1973. But those Americans who do still have jobs are the fortunate ones.

#4) Unemployment is absolutely exploding all over the United States. Minority groups have been hit particularly hard. For example, unemployment on many U.S. Indian reservations is over 80 percent.

#5) Unfortunately the employment situation is showing no signs of turning around. December was actually the worst month for U.S. unemployment since the so-called “Great Recession” began.

#6) So just how bad are things when compared to past recessions? During the 2001 recession, the U.S. economy lost 2% of its jobs and it took four years to get them back. This time the U.S. economy has lost more than 5% of its jobs and there is no sign that the bleeding of jobs will stop any time soon.

#7) Can you imagine trying to get your first job in this economic climate? Our young men and women either can’t get work or have given up on work altogether. The percentage of Americans 16 to 24 who have jobs is 13 percent lower than ten years ago.

#8) So where did all the jobs go? Over the past few decades we have allowed the corporate giants to ship mountains of American jobs overseas, and there are signs that this trend is only going to get worse. In fact, Princeton University economist Alan S. Blinder estimates that 22% to 29% of all current U.S. jobs will be offshorable within two decades. So get ready for even more of our jobs to be shipped off to Mexico, China and India.

#9) All of these job losses are leading to defaults on mortgages. Over the past couple of years we have seen the American Dream in reverse. According to a report that was just released, delinquent home loans at government-controlled mortgage finance giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac surged 20 percent from July through September.

#10) But that is nothing compared to what is coming. A massive “second wave” of mortgage defaults is getting ready to hit the U.S. economy starting in 2010. In fact, this “second wave” is so frightening that even 60 Minutes is reporting on it.

#11) Meanwhile, the Federal Reserve has announced that it made a record profit of $46.1 billion in 2009. Apparently during this economic crisis it is a very good time to be a bankster.

I don’t know about you, but I have witnessed and acknowledged every one of these indicators. Massive job losses still on the way. And, don’t be a putz: just because the manipulated stock market or those huge bonueses are being paid out to the Elite bankers, this helps you in ZERO ways. Neither of those indicators indicate jack shit, except that they are getting richer while us poor-assed rednecks are dying on the vine. It indicates that they are stealing our treasury, enriching themselves and putting us into a debt that can NEVER be paid for. DO YOU UNDERTSAND THE SIGNIFICANCE OF THIS?

How many times can you  borrow money knowing you can never pay it back?

(Yeah, that is real life, and what our leadership experiences is not real life)

There are but two options I can think of when this occurs. Either I go bankrupt (which I did last summer) or I load the weapons and tell the creditors, come and get it, for I ain’t giving it willingly.

What did America do?

Dennis Kucinich: Time To Put a Stop to The Health Insurance Give-away

I don’t know why I put myself thru it, but I noticed that Dennis Kucinich was going to be on the Ed Show and wanted to hear what he had to say in regards to the POTUS’s speech and his plan for health care (not INSURANCE) reform.

View the clip here.

One thing that you won’t see in that clip (or in any clip I can find) was the very next guest that Ed brought on to totally discount Mr Kucinich. Ed gave Jonathan Alter much more and uninterrupted air time so he could offer the contrary view that just happens to go along with the POTUS. Just ram the bill thru and work from there. But as Dennis points out, the entire bill is a non-starter and a sham. It is nothing more than forcing people to buy insurance when they can’t afford it, anyway.

Jonathan Alter is nothing more than a media clown who knows where his bread gets its butter. The main point, tho, is how a Congressman, elected multiple times and ran for the presidency, is simply shrugged off by this foolish little man. Who, in their right mind, would give Alter more credence than Kucinich?

Of course you won’t hear the entire argument, for they would not allow Dennis to rebut the idiocy Jonathon (then the ass-kissing Ed Shultz) spread out for you rednecks.

Jesus Christ, I know better than to watch that shit.

Notice that you can’t find the clip of Jonathon coming in and discounting Kucinich and saying “He’s wrong.” But all those gullible assholes who gobble this shit up every night saw it.

There is no doubt in my mind that these corrupt sycophants know exactly what they are doing and who’s direction they follow. It has nothing, whatsoever, to do with what is best for this country.

For, as Mr Obama said in that clip, “show me”. How can you show someone something when they won’t open their eyes due to the money stacks that disallow it?

I’ve been screaming the answer for well over a year now. The bastard just says shit, but cares nothing for the real answers. Empty suit and a lying asshole.

America’s Amazing Coincidences

Have you ever wondered about all the amazing coincidences that occur that always seem to get quickly swept down the memory hole? To me, it is amazing how certain events occur simultaneously or at the precise correct time to implement a preconceived goal.

One of my favorites is the video below from Sept 10, 2001. This video is of Sec of Def Rumsfeld as he discusses his newly declared war against the Pentagon Bureaucracy. You see, just one day before that horrible false flag event, Mr Rumsfeld came out and started to explain that so much money is wasted and unaccounted for that it could “be a matter of life and death”. They couldn’t track $2.3TRILLION.

h/t AllVoices

WHAT? $2.3T and we are having a financial crisis right? What a coincidence.

Anyway, we know they are thieves of the highest order. The thing that gets me is that since 9/11, this has basically fallen off the map.

How about the strange coincidence that VP Cheney was heading NORAD on that fateful day. A practice “coincidentally” started just a couple of months before and NEVER before done in the entire history of the USA. In other words, this devilish man took the reigns of the most sophisticated air defense system in the world and just “coincidentally” the attackers got thru and did Mr Cheney’s bidding (or whichever personification of Beelzebub he was taking at the time). Or that on that very day, 9/11, we were actually conducting war games that mimic the occurrences of that day… the hijacking of airplanes.

Or that on 7/7 when London was bombed in their subways, there was “coincidentally” the very same war game occurring. Security details were doing a live war game regarding terrorists blowing up buses and subways. ON THAT VERY DAY.

What a coincidence, huh?

Well, this brings me to the most recent coincidence to occur and it revolves around Haiti and the earthquake. A couple of days ago, I wrote about it and mentioned HAARP. My bud, Tengrain, also added some commentary and we both seem to agree that it “sounds” far fetched that humans have the technology to control weather, or much less, an earthquake. Since that day, I have slowly investigated the issue and found that Sec of Def Cohen (during the Clinton Admin) said that the technology was available already back then. This ain’t some old dumbass redneck like me. This is a man that should know what he is talking about.

As much as I find it difficult to comprehend and/or believe, I keep coming back to HAARP and the reports I have read. Then today I read Stephen Lendman’s piece, “Haiti’s Eathquake: Natural or Engineered” and I found the amazing “coincidence” that preceded this event.

ViVe said the US Navy may have had “full knowledge” of the test’s damage potential, and speculated it was why Deputy Southern Command General PK Keen was in Haiti when the quake struck, preparing to act in case of a disaster, perhaps an engineered one. In his January 21 Global Research article, Michel Chossudovsky said:

“A Haiti disaster relief scenario had been envisaged at the headquarters of US Southern Command (SOUTHCOM) in Miami one day prior to the earthquake (since) pre-disaster simulations pertain(ing) to the impacts of a hurricane in Haiti” were conducted.

A “communication-information tool” called the Transnational Information Sharing Cooperation project (TISC) “links non-government organizations with the United States (government and military) and other nations for tracking, coordinating and organizing relief efforts.”

When the quake struck, TISC was in “an advanced stage of readiness.” The next day, SOUTHCOM implemented the system. “The (DOD’s) Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA)” set up a relief effort among “a range of Defense units and various” NGOs and aid groups operating “as part of a carefully planned military operation.” Did DOD have advance knowledge of the quake so could act immediately when it struck? Was the drill’s timing a coincidence or something more sinister?

One day prior to the event, there were plans implemented in case there was a disaster in Haiti. Not only that, but the dude in charge of our forces there was available the day the earthquake hit… supposedly IN Haiti.

Amazing, huh?

It appears to me that either America has been hit with a hurricane of coincidences or something is being engineered.

Let me know what you think.

BTW: this may be a good time to watch Jesse Ventura’s new program that focused on the HAARP phenomena. I have added a page for all his shows. Click here to view the Main Conspiracy Theory page and here for the HAARP episode.

Cut Social Services for Americans, but INCREASE Military Spending for Foreigners (at least to murder them)

Sounds about par for the course in America’s LaLa Land of blissfull ignorance.

And of course there will be thousands of poor, right-wing sycophantic fools that will gobble up the insane rhetoric as if there is truth to it (just because some southern scumbag Pol who gets his damned money from the ones he protects says that he thinks it is best to cut spending). And, of course, with the empowered Democratic party base, they will change their anti-war focus and do anything the Messiah (POTUS Obama) tells them to do.

This simple fact should be enough for any real anti-war or peace activist to call the sycophants on their ass kissing. But I won’t hold my breath because an ass kissing sycophant is indiscernible from party. Whatever their favorite object of worship dictates, they fall all over themselves to make themselves approved in the Messiah’s light. That is why Crooks and Liars, Daily Kos and the whole host of “liberal” blogs have turned into nothing more than yes men intent on keeping the masses brainwashed as they are. Clowns. Oh, and the “conservative” blogs are even more worthless.

Funny how the “cut spending” argument NEVER seems to take in to account our largest out lying costs by any stretch: our Empire. I have addressed the amount of spending at this blog many times (here, here and here and many more places). One of my favorite charts and earliest posts on the subject is found here (this chart compares the spending we do in America on energy sources across all the areas of society compared to military spending). It is excellent, because it scales the dollar value and it is unmistakable that we spend far more money than any enemy we have (or group of enemies). But worse, we spend more than the rest of the world combined.

One of my favorite blogs is Glen Greenwald’s and I focus on his work often. He has become a truly independent voice of reason, whereas one of my other past favorite legal blogs (Jonathon Turley) has become a mouthpiece for the MSM. Normally, his blog is prescient and on top of the issue, but lately, the man keeps spreading bogus propaganda against America’s latest enemy of the state, Venezuela and Hugo Chavez.

Yet, opposed to his normal fashion, he refuses to check to see what other information can be gathered and trusts CNN as a sole source.

I always find it amazing when a person I respect normally, finds some way to totally betray their normal behavior. No, I cannot say unequivocally that he is doing his master’s bidding, but I can say (and have on his blog) that he is incorrect and is now spreading the same type of lying rhetoric that Bush and those that Jonathon so vehemently dissected during their terms. I find that Mr Turley is basically another party clown, by many measures. He should turn off the TV, but that might mean he gets no more air time on MSNBC, GE’s darling Liberal channel).

Nevertheless, I find that Glenn, again, is superior in every way in his analysis (no matter what the subject matter) and that he does his best to stay even keeled and without prejudice. Just a cursory look at both blogs proves the vast difference in content. Turley was great as a Bush basher (and this is where he made is entry into the mainstream). But, he is terrible when it comes to being the mouthpiece for Military propaganda and it has cost him a regular visitor.

Oh well.

Glenn, however, penned this, “The sanctity of military spending” and he is NOT afraid to call a spade a spade (wherein, it seems that depending upon the subject matter, to Jonathon a spade is sometimes nothing more than a plastic spoon).

In the article, Glenn explains the intended social cuts, but then does what I do, focuses on the unheralded PROBLEM that is ravaging our men and women (and our treasury). This is a reason I believe Glenn is an American hero and Patriot.

The facts about America’s bloated, excessive, always-increasing military spending are now well-known.  The U.S. spends almost as much on military spending as the entire rest of the world combined, and spends roughly six times more than the second-largest spender, China.  Even as the U.S. sunk under increasingly crippling levels of debt over the last decade, defense spending rose steadily, sometimes precipitously.  That explosion occurred even as overall military spending in the rest of the world decreased, thus expanding the already-vast gap between our expenditures and the world’s.  As one “defense” spending watchdog group put it:  “The US military budget was almost 29 times as large as the combined spending of the six ‘rogue’ states (Cuba, Iran, Libya, North Korea, Sudan and Syria) who spent $14.65 billion.”  To get a sense for how thoroughly military spending dominates our national budget, consider this chart showing where Americans’ tax revenue goes:

Since much of that overall spending is mandatory, military spending — all of which is discretionary — accounts for over 50% of discretionary government spending. Yet it’s absolutely forbidden to even contemplate reducing it as a means of reducing our debt or deficit…

He goes on to explain that Mr Obama actually ran on expanding the military. In fact, this spending is breaking us: financially, morally and in the number of needlessly killed and maimed soldiers of whom I love and respect greatly. We are spreading the tentacles across the world, spending money like the worst drunken sailor alive, yet we will not take care of our own.

My question to each and every redneck alive today: is this ok with you? Is it ok to spend all that money, killing all those people, taking all their shit and then take away the only real protection your little old mother has… Social Security?

Are you that stupid? Really?

Wake up, folks. It is almost too late. For even if we were spending far more on Social stuff, I think that is exactly what our taxes are for. I sure as hell don’t care about paying a tax that is used to lie me into believing another invasion excuse. I’d rather every bit of my money go to taking care of those who need the help. Iraq didn’t need our help. Yemen doesn’t. Afghanistan, Pakistan, ANY OF THEM. All liess. They do not need our military aid. Stop believing the bullshit.

As Glenn ends his article, we see that the goober gobbling media is joining in on the cary stroy, ensuring that all of us simply shit our pants and trust our government to take care of us:

Apparently, it’s breaking news — meriting screaming red-alert headlines — that Al Qaeda would like to (“aims to”) acquire WMDs and use them against the U.S.  But we should all try to remain a little calm, at least.  I’m sure if we just buy some more fighter jets, create some better underground bombs, invade a few more Muslim countries, keep more Muslims imprisoned forever with no charges, give the Pentagon, the CIA and their private contractors a lot more unaccounted-for cash and stay out of their way, expand our domestic spying networks even further through private sector telecom contracts, pour tens of billions of dollars more into the coffers of our Middle East client states, and kill a few more civilians with drones, this problem will be handled.  It’s just a matter of making sure we bulk up our military budget — and Look Forward, not Backward to what was done in the past — and we’ll be able to Stay Safe from this Terrorist-WMD menace.

As for the deficit, no need to worry about that.  We can just freeze programs for national parks and cut Social Security and Medicare.

Sodom to left of me, Sodom to the right of me…

WTF happened to this child??? Moral and Social Protective Systems everywhere are shot to hell!!!!!

A 12-year-old boy whose mother was convicted of raping him was also allegedly raped at a boarding school and while under the care of the foster family he was subsequently placed with, police suspect.
In 2008, the boy’s mother, of Netivot, was arrested for raping her son and his younger brother in what she said was “vengeance against my husband.” Now, police suspect that the boy’s nightmare of sexual assault continued after the state placed him in a boarding school and under the care of a foster family.
The boy stayed at a boarding school in Bnei Brak after his father, who had since remarried, refused to take him due to objections by his new spouse. He spent weekends and holidays with a foster family from central Israel located by his father.
The boy’s foster mother filed a police complaint against her 51-year-old husband in December at a Rosh Ha’ayin police station, alleging that her husband regularly sodomized the boy. The couple are in the midst of divorce proceedings.
The woman also told police that the boy was sexually assaulted by his councilor at the boarding school.
The councilor, 30, has confessed to police and is expected to be indicted by state prosecutors this week. The boy’s foster father was arrested on Sunday night after having disappeared and apparently evaded police. He has denied all charges.
The woman who lodged the complaint is suspected of not reporting the alleged abuse for several months despite being aware of it.
Police say the boy is facing extreme emotional hardships. He has been sent to a new foster family in a different city.

I want to know what happened to his brother… and the fact that one woman took awhile before she reported the sexual abuse by her husband seems to give her no credit for finally working through fear or whatever and getting it reported!

Loving Israel unto death

During the Cold War serious protocols were set to protect the Americans and Soviets in case of a first strike and even more vigorous protocols were in place regarding how to respond to it. Unlike conventional weapons, nuclear weapons are counter-value weapons, which do not distinguish between civilian and military targets – they will destroy all.

There has been a great deal of discussion on the prevention and deterrence of a nuclear strike on Israel by Iran. Most assume the missile would originate from Iran. But with US airpower in Iraq and Afghanistan, multitudes of Awacs and electronics in Saudi Arabia and other Gulf nations, and with NATO ships with sophisticated electronics positioned in the Persian Gulf, it is doubtful that missiles could make their way from Iran to Israel. However, missiles could easily be launched from locations much closer to Israel. There is so much instability in the region that it would be easy for a rogue nation to entice one or more proxies to act on its behalf.
While Iranian plans for nuclear self-sufficiency were born in the early 1970s and are the focus of a great deal of national pride, achieving nuclear capability during President Ahmadinejad’s tenure is said to be a mandate of the Iran Revolutionary Guards Corp (IRGC). With the IRGC’s significant influence and control over the Iranian economy, security, public policy and military, the goal will undoubtedly be reached.
We cannot ignore the potential uses for this nuclear capability once it is developed. Perhaps one of the few things that could shift Iranian public opinion regarding weaponization of nuclear power, and cascade the current public opposition to the regime, would be a large-scale accident in one of IRGC’s many nuclear facilities. This is a significant risk as the IRGC is rushing to get there and may be cutting corners in the process.
Operating a multibillion-dollar enterprise inside Iran and across the globe, while directing nuclear research and development, the IRGC would have little interest in an Armageddon, at least in the short term. Having said that, there is a significant desire to cause turmoil and damage to those who are perceived as enemies of the state – Israel and the United States being at the top of the list.
WITH IRAN on a fast track towards military dictatorship and swept up in serious expansionist ideology, the prospect of being a target for second strike as a direct result of attacking Israel would not be very appealing to the IRGC.

Given its significant investments in strategic planning in conventional and unconventional military engagement, and following established patterns (Gaza, Lebanon, Iraq, and Yemen), it seems unlikely that a IRGC would launch the first strike directly from Iran. It is more likely that this would be put into motion by an IRGC proxy much closer to Israel. The IRGC could then embark on conventional warfare to cover its tracks. With media and public opinion generally unsympathetic to Israel, it is not beyond belief that Iran could convince people or develop doubts in people’s minds that the nuclear first strike was instead conventional warfare striking Israel’s own nuclear war-heads and giving the impression of a nuclear attack.
A first strike on Israel would also present a convenient opportunity for Israel’s enemies to engage in further destruction. Israel, perceived as weakened and vulnerable, might be seen as ripe for a multi-pronged attack by those who want to see the Jewish state destroyed. In fact it would be far easier for the IRGC to let the Arabs finish the job all on their own. Strategically, the IRGC’s expansionist strategies would work perfectly in the aftermath of such events.
A first strike from a closer proximity would be devastating to Israel, possibly irrecoverable, considering Israel’s size versus the coverage of the strike. Being somewhat larger, Iran would survive a second strike by Israel quite well. Not only might a first strike on Israel eliminate its capacity to launch a second strike from land, but Israel might also find it hard to justify launching an attack on Iran if the first strike originated from a third country. That would only bring more international condemnation of Israel. With any missile launched towards Israel from anywhere having potential to be “the one,” Israel’s future military success will be defined by how well it can address incoming missiles of any kind. Investment in anti-ballistic missile technologies will continue to be a priority.
A first strike on any location in Israel would have devastating impact on the Palestinian population as well, including those in the Gaza and the West Bank. A strike on Tel Aviv would not be felt only in Tel Aviv, but would have a much larger impact in the region, perhaps as far as Lebanon, Jordan, Syria and Egypt.
Whether the IRGC uses the nuclear threat as a bargaining chip to deter any military action against it, or to strengthen its proxies such as Hizbollah and Hamas in the region, they all point to an expansionist agenda for the IRGC. Some may say that Israel, as the common foe, has united some Arabs with the Persians, and it wouldn’t make sense to destroy the unifying force. On the other hand, the IRGC might find delivering the first strike to the most powerful country in the region an irresistible and impressive military demonstration of its own power.
At the end of the cold war the two superpowers realized that no matter how many nuclear warheads they aimed at one another, thermonuclear war would not be in their or the rest of the world’s best interests. This realization resulted in further talks, and an understanding.
The Iranian administration will eventually realize that annihilation of Israel and 7.5 million Jews would have reciprocal impact on its own existence and that of its proxies, even if they use one of those proxies to launch the first strike.

I would of much rather our government of said… ” Hey we are going to take your son’s and daughter’s overseas to some strategic areas so we can occupy them to keep Isreal safe”. At least as we buried our children we would of, in some way, had a drop less insanity going on with the pain! Plus we wuld of been able to voice a true and actual protest that mattered. Geeeeece.
