"He is a communist without Question,"
"promoting the Communist Manifesto without calling it so. How shrewd he is in America. His cult of personality mesmerizes those who cannot go beyond their ignorance. They will continue to follow him like those fools who still praise Lenin and Stalin in Russia.

"Obama's fools* and Stalin's fools share the same drink of illusion.”
Russian President Vladimir Putin
*"Useful Idiots" is the term Karl Marx used to describe the ignorant masses of people to be used in implementing his communist agenda.

From the Author: I use the term "Author" with some reluctance. More accurately, this paper might best be described as a compilation "with commentary". There has been a flood of information, evaluations and warnings on this nation's decline since Barack Hussein Obama took the office of president. I have included here the most telling and verifiable (most within the past 6 mo.). Truthfully, there are some that cannot be declared as fully substantiated. Wherever possible I have included the sources as a hyperlink. Nevertheless, if they have passed the "Duck Test" (if it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck……) I have included them here. If you have doubts about the veracity of anything I have included here, I invite and encourage you to do your own research. Please let me know where I can make corrections. You can leave comments at the Chevelon Alliance site listed below. The printed version of this report varies somewhat from the online version. The quotes section at the end has been condensed. But more importantly, the hyperlinks which serve as the references are not visible or accessible in the printed version. I have in this small paper been able to only "Hit the High Spots", the sources accessed by the hyperlinks are very important in fully revealing the seriousness of our situation. Please follow them. This report can be viewed online at: Scribd.com: in the search space, enter Chevelon Alliance Note: Beginning on page 63 is a list of definitions of relevant political and economic terms. I recommend that these be read before proceeding to the body of this paper. Additionally, you will find at the very end, a "Quotes" section. If you haven't time to read anything else; read these, for they constitute a microcosm, that has evolved down through the centuries, of knowledge acquired by men who have shaped history and dealt the very same problems we are faced with today.

Bama's actions aren't those of a pure Marxist (so far). In my estimation he is a pragmatic fascist/statist. And as such, has little regard for the constitutional foundation of this nation's government or the rule of law in general. He has revealed himself as an opportunistic liar willing to apply the art whenever it appears beneficial. These characteristics he shares with Lenin, Stalin and a succession of Communist statists. This, combined with his devastating economic agenda is, I suspect, what led to Putin's assessment. Theoretical Marxist Communism has proved a failure wherever it has been instituted. For a very good reason: it is inconsistent with basic human nature. The Soviet Union has passed and its member nations are now progressing towards restrained free market capitalism. China has evolved into more of a totalitarian Fascist state. While the world is slowly passing through its experiment with communism, the same cannot be said for the movement towards totalitarian world domination. With the election of Barack Hussain Obama, America is teetering on the abyss.

As a young man, I was acquainted with a successful businessman who bought gold devotedly. He attempted to explain to me that there was a plan being enacted to destroy this nation and its economy thru devaluation of the dollar. He told me that gold would become immensely valuable. I dismissed it as wacky and "conspiratorial". As a product of the national education system, this seemed absurd. Anyway, at the time, I was more interested in girls than economics and politics. I later spent five years working at the world headquarters of the Arabian American Oil Company (ARAMCO) in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia. There, I found myself in the midst of an array of intelligent, educated, and aware people from around the world. Not only did I hear the same scenario repeated, but in greater detail. I was less inclined to dismiss it this time. Still, I didn't become a believer until I began to see it all play out before my eyes. I had been told that:  The American middle class would be destroyed  Their wealth would be transferred to a new ruling class  Their property would be confiscated by the U.S. government  The U.S. Constitution would be suspended  A totalitarian/socialist government would be instituted.  The U.S. would be submerged in a "One World Government"  It would all be done legally I don't recall being told the exact process. But, having watched it play out, I understand it now and am amazed at its simplicity. It began with nothing more than a welcomed subsidy to help people own their own homes. Added to this were the federal depositor's insurance program and the equivalent to cover worker pension funds. There were a few other "sweetener's" added to "Grease the skids" but essentially that was all it took - all legal and all embraced by the American people. In the pages that follow, I will show how the first three have been enacted and overwhelming evidence that those remaining are "well.under.way"! None of which would have been possible without the efforts of John Dewey and his ideological descendants. And finally, serving as Mephistopheles in directing this satanic symphony is none other than the Federal Reserve System.

“John Dewey, the patron saint of the education establishment wrote in 1896 that the US must be converted to a socialist nation, but that the public would never accept that due to the level of education and culture of the American public. In 1903 he became head of the Graduate School of Education. He then proceeded to recruit graduate students who accepted his ideas of a socialist nation. In 1923 Dewey visited the Soviet Union and returned extolling the virtues of the communist nation. His return was followed in 1924 by two members of the Coninterm who began a long effort to penetrate the Democratic Party and recruit people in the various universities. By the beginning of WWII, Dewey’s people were directors of almost every Normal College (the teacher training institutes) in the US. At the end of WWII the Normal colleges were converted into four year colleges to take in the vast number of veterans seeking an education. By the beginning of WWII, three communists' party members were serving as members of President Roosevelt's Staff. About 1950 they controlled the National Education Association and the schools of education in the various colleges and universities. They then began a long term program to dumb down the education of the citizens and to destroy the nation's Judeo-Christian culture. In this they were aided by the ACLU and several of the Major labor unions.”
John Dewey was one of the original founders of the ACLU. The Russian Bolsheviks in 1918 considered him such an ideological comrade that they invested precious hard currency having his works translated into Russian, even while the Revolution was still underway. Chairman Mao in the 1920s cited Dewey as his favorite philosopher. John Dewey's ideological descendents are equally relentless:

The substitution of propaganda for great literature in our schools
Paul Mirengoff, December 6, 2012:

“Controversy is brewing over new Common Core State Standards in English that call on public schools to emphasize the reading of “information text” instead of fictional literature. According to the Washington Post, English teachers across the country are upset by what they consider the government’s effort “to drive literature out of the classroom. English teachers are right to be upset, but they shouldn’t take it personally. The government has nothing much against literature, per se. Rather, this initiative is driven in large part by the desire to promote political propaganda in the classroom. The study of literature is being downgraded in the process, but for a good cause. ……….Consider that one of the “informational texts” recommended as a replacement for, say, Great Expectations is “Executive Order 13423: Strengthening Federal Environmental, Energy, and Transportation Management.” Students would thus study government propaganda in English class (this Executive Order
4

was issued under President Bush, but it is still propaganda — a political sop to the environmental left, as Stanley Kurtz shows). Another Common Core’s non-fiction exemplar is an excerpt from a 2009 New Yorker essay by Atul Gawande on health care. This too is propaganda – an effort to show that Obamacare is wise.policy. Proponents of downgrading the teaching of literature claim that their goal is to make sure U.S. students can read and understand complicated texts. But there are plenty of complicated texts that don’t amount to political propaganda, much less propaganda relating to current hot-button policy issues in which the Obama administration is heavily invested. If teaching students how to read such texts were the only goal here, the list of exemplar tests wouldn’t include one-sided political tracts about health care and the environment. …….Consider also where the Common Core comes from? The Washington Post tries to make it appear that the new curriculum percolated up from the states. But at the back end of its story we find that “the Obama administration kicked the notion into high gear when it required states to adopt the common standards — or an equivalent — in order to compete for Race to the Top grant funds.” (emphasis added). The Common Core, then, should be viewed, at least in part, as an attempt by the Obama administration to gain control of what is taught in public schools for the purpose of indoctrination. As Stanley Kurtz puts it, “Obama has managed to press direct support for his most cherished and controversial policy initiative onto your local school district.” Kurtz warned about this move in “Spreading The Wealth: How Obama Is Robbing The Suburbs To Pay For the Cites”. And he documented the central role in the development of the Common Core being played by Linda Darling-Hammond. …… .A long-time proponent of a politicized curriculum, Darling-Hammod was Obama’s education adviser during the 2008 campaign. She was on track to be nominated Secretary of Education until her leftism alienated many Democrats. Bill Ayers — domestic terrorist and former Obama associate on educational matters — expressed disappointment that Darling-Hammond was not nominated, adding that he would also have picked Noam Chomsky for Secretary of State, fellow terrorist Bernadine Dohrn for Attorney General, and Paul Krugman for Secretary of Treasury. …….. But, as Kurtz explains, Darling-Hammond may be more useful in her role as the leading presence at the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium, one of the two private groups involved in designing the Common Core. And Darling-Hammond isn’t just a prime force behind the common curriculum; she’s also working on standardized testing. Kurtz shows that Darling-Hammond is actually opposed to such testing and that her mission is to dumb testing down. The shrewdest aspect of Obama’s education power play is the relative absence of his fingerprints. As noted, Common Core is being presented as having been adopted in 46 states and the District of Columbia. In reality, though, most of them hadn’t even seen the new standards. They were induced to agree to adopt whatever curriculum leftists like Darling-Hammond came up with as a condition of receiving federal funds. As I said in my review of Kurtz’s book the modern left is cleverer than the rest of us. The rest of us can fight back,

The Idea Of Directed History

"To further their goals, the plutocrats would need to control more than just the monetary system. They would need to control information. They would need control over what ideas and opinions reach the masses. This was not hard to achieve. In 1917, Representative Oscar Callaway of Texas told Congress: "In March, 1915, the J.P. Morgan interests, the steel, shipbuilding, and powder interests, and their subsidiary organizations, got together 12 men high up in the newspaper world and employed them to select the most influential newspapers in the United States and sufficient number of them to control generally the policy of the daily press in the United States. These 12 men worked the problem out by selecting 179 newspapers, and then began, by an elimination process, to retain only those necessary for the purpose of controlling the general policy of the daily press throughout the country. They found it was only necessary to purchase the control of 25 of the greatest papers. The 25 papers were agreed upon; emissaries were sent to purchase the policy, national and international, of these papers; an agreement was reached; the policy of the papers was bought, to be paid for by the month; an editor was furnished for each paper to properly supervise and edit information regarding the questions of preparedness, militarism, financial policies, and other things of national and international nature considered vital to the interests of the purchasers. This policy also included the suppression of everything in opposition to the wishes of the interests served.. (Proceedings and Debates of the Second Session of the 64th Congress, Vol. LIV, Congressional Record of the House of Representatives, Feb. 9, 1917, pp. 2947 – 48).
Today 6 corporations control 90% of the media in America. The consistency and focus of these is even more pronounced than in Representative Callaway's day. To those with an inquiring and discerning mind the internet offers an astounding opportunity to access history as it happens. A source unfiltered by the 6

controlling interests of those who benefit from the distortion and concealment of actual knowledge. I do not mean to imply that everything on the internet is true. Most of it is still garbage. People will lie straight to your face. There are even more who will lie in print. The Earth changing difference is that the internet is a media that is nearly universally accessible to people who know and can present the truth. It is incumbent upon the reader to acquire the knowledge and develop skill necessary to discern the truth.

Winston Churchill Knowledge is power and whoever controls access controls all. Worldwide, Repressive governments are intently aware of this. The U.N., China, the U.S., Europe, all around the world, there is a movement to censor and limit access to the internet. If the people of this planet allow this to happen, I fear the ugly head of a modernized feudalism will dominate the near horizon of man's future.

...Secrecy is the keystone of all tyranny. Not force, but secrecy... censorship. When any government, or any church for that matter, undertakes to say to its subjects, 'This you may not read, this you must not see, this you are forbidden to know,' the end result is tyranny and oppression, no matter how holy the motives.

in 1965 (thru Ted Kennedy), the communist agenda expanded to include national immigration policy. This devastating achievement came after the realization that immigration could be used to “stack the deck” with natural welfare recipients receptive to communist dogma. Prior to this, immigration policy was conducted more as a business interview where needs of the nation and the skills of the applicant were paramount ("Economic Refugee" status was specifically prohibited). This naturally favored Europe where education and modern science gave birth to the industrial revolution within a political structure receptive to free enterprise. The unprecedented progress of this nation was in no small part a consequence of the immigration policy of that era. This was the period that best exemplified the phrase: "America was built by immigrants!" Since 1968, Eighty-five percent of legal immigrants have come from the "Third World". "Third world" is a category encompassing nations who, a 150 years later, are still struggling to comprehend and integrate the industrial revolution as well as the political, social and economic concepts that made it possible. The majority of these third world countries have violent histories of failed economies directed by autocratic statists practicing small "D" socialist/fascist "democracies" (dictatorial communism practiced with a small "C"). If you begin with the logical premise that a nation's natural government is a direct reflection of the character of its people (how can it be otherwise?): it is no surprise that a majority of them are in need of (and active promoters of institutionalized) government assistance (a recent study conducted by the Center for Immigration Studies revealed that 43 percent of all immigrants who have been in the United States for at least 20 years were still on welfare). Obama is intently aware of the progress that immigration reform has delivered in achieving communist goals. During his time in the U.S. Senate, Barack Obama backed bills that would have dramatically boosted legal immigration, potentially by hundreds of thousands a year. As president, he has called for the same thing.////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// 7

Since coming to office he has at every turn taken every advantage to grant amnesty and otherwise legitimize illegal immigrants. The latest occurred during the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. Citing the destruction caused by the storm, he defied federal law by waiving enforcement of immigration law for illegals now in the United States. He gave as justification that the storm may have hampered their ability to maintain their lawful immigration status or obtain other immigration benefits. While, this was a glaring effort at pandering to his immigrant base just prior to the presidential election, it (predictably) went virtually unnoticed by the media. Ted Kennedy's immigration reform served three important socialist goals: First: A massive influx of foreign cultures would dilute American nationalism*, create …………….dissension and political schism……………………………… *Webster’s Definition of Nation: "A stable, historically developed community of people with a territory, economic life, distinctive culture, and language in common" Second: Welfare programs could be utilized to literally buy the votes to install a ……………………… Communist president Third: The overwhelming expense of the welfare state (Cloward-Piven Strategy)* could then be rapidly expanded to destroy the monetary system and national economy. Following this, the institution.of.martial law, suspension of the constitution and eventual submersion of this nation within a.one-world.Communist "paradise". *This site is less than complimentary to Obama and it isn't uncommon that such sites cannot be accessed by hyperlink (you figure out why) I have had some success with direct search. Try: http://www. /_opinion/Cloward-Piven.html The Cloward-Piven Strategy was formulated in 1966 by Columbia University sociologists Richard Andrew Cloward and Frances Fox Piven. In the Magazine Nation, Cloward and Piven published an article titled "The Weight of the Poor: A Strategy to End Poverty". Following its publication, The Nation sold an astounding 30,000 reprints. From theobamafile.com:

"The "Cloward-Piven Strategy" seeks to hasten the fall of capitalism by overloading the government bureaucracy with a flood of impossible demands, thus pushing society into crisis and economic collapse. The authors noted that the number of Americans subsisting on welfare (about 8 million, at the time) probably represented less than half the number who were technically eligible for full benefits. They proposed a "massive drive to recruit the poor onto the welfare rolls." Cloward and Piven calculated that persuading even a fraction of potential welfare recipients to demand their entitlements would bankrupt the system. Cloward told The New York Times on September 27, 1970. "Rather than placating the poor with government hand-outs, activists should work to sabotage and destroy the welfare system; the collapse of the welfare state would ignite a political and financial crisis* that would rock the nation; poor people would rise in revolt; only then would "the rest of society" accept their demands".,
*No successful economy has ever willingly adopted communism 8

Obama was a student at Columbia at the same time that Cloward and Piven were professors there. If Obama studied under them cannot be known as Obama has sealed his records there. (Imagine that!)

Only fraud and falsehood dread examination. Truth invites it

Creation of the FHA in the ‘30’s, followed by the G.I. bill with (its VA loan guarantees) had as their objective, providing decent shelter for American families. Combined with individual state construction and mortgage subsidies, an over-development in the housing industry then occurred. The objective group market became saturated and things turned sour in the 70’s when the creation of housing units was proceeding at nearly twice the rate of population growth. If one is to adhere to the political mantra: “never let a good crisis go to waste” one must first have a “good crisis". Instead of allowing free market capitalism to sort things out, an “opportunity” was recognized to further the welfare state by shifting subsidy focus from traditional families to high-risk “under-served” low-income minority and single-mother households. This eventually morphed into the absurd “NINJA” loans: No Income, No Job, No Assets. The ’08 collapse was engineered upon the housing welfare programs instituted first by Jimmy Carter, and followed by steroid injections administered by Bill Clinton. Add to this, Obama's work with ACORN which promoted subprime mortgages thru ACORN Housing (a subsidiary with offices in more than 30 U.S. cities). The following consists of excerpts from:

OBAMA SUFFERS AMNESIA BLAMING BUSH FOR ECONOMY Democrats pumped subprime mortgage market, triggering banking collapse

JEROME R. CORSI Harvard PhD
09/04/2012

The 2008 banking collapse was triggered by a series of failures in the mortgage-backed securities market resulting from massive defaults in the subprime mortgage market and derivatives supporting the mortgage market that caused Lehman Brothers and Bear Stearns to go bankrupt. Financial giants such as Freddie Mac, Fannie Mae, Merrill Lynch and AIG threatened to follow suit, as detailed by the Guardian of London. As WND reported in May 2009, Obama himself played a role as an activist lawyer in Chicago, representing in the 1994 case Buycks-Roberson v. Citibank Federal Savings Bank. In the case, ACORN pressed Citibank to make more loans to marginally qualified African-American applicants “in a race neutral way.” Community Reinvestment Act of 1977 The Community Reinvestment Act, or CRA, was signed into law by President Jimmy Carter in 1977 with the goal of forcing banks to provide credit to businesses and homeowners with poor credit. The CRA’s purpose was to stop banks from “red-lining,” or refusing to lend to people in low-income areas because the risk of the loan not being repaid was too high.

9

Even though lending to people with poor credit is inherently risky, the Carter administration was intent on forcing banks to accept a social responsibility to provide credit to homeowners and businesses in lowincome neighborhoods.. The CRA was super-charged during the Clinton administration with a set of new rules that allowed subprime mortgages to be securitized. Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke, in a speech to the Community Affairs Research Conference in Washington, D.C., on March 30, 2007, noted a 1992 law passed during the Clinton administration expanded the CRA market by requiring the government-sponsored enterprises Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to securitize “affordable housing loans,” a euphemism widely understood to mean low-income housing loans. Clinton expands subprime mortgage market Securitization of mortgages into bonds, a process that became a multi-trillion-dollar business in the 1990s, increased dramatically the liquidity, or amount of money available, to make new home loans. Because mortgage originators could sell their mortgages to investment bankers, creating mortgage-backed securities, mortgage originators did not have to hold the mortgage in their portfolio. As a result, mortgage lenders could more easily engage in riskier lending, including lending to less qualified buyers in the subprime market. By allowing CRA-generated and other subprime mortgages to be included in mortgage-backed securities, the Clinton administration advanced a social agenda to extend homeownership into inner-city poverty, where prospective homeowners were typically not qualified to obtain a mortgage. By definition, subprime lenders are not credit-worthy under normal lending standards. They typically cannot meet normal lending requirements to verify income and have a history of credit problems. Gretchen Morgenson and Joshua Rosner, in their 2011 book “Reckless Endangerment,” detailed how the subprime mortgage crisis resulted in the collapse of financial institutions in September 2008. The authors demonstrated, as noted on page 3 of the book, how Clinton’s “calamitous” homeownership strategy developed and “came to blow up the economy.” The authors call it a “story of greed, good intentions, corporate corruption and government support.” In the aftermath of the U.S. government takeover of Fannie and Freddie, attention focused on three prominent Democrats who served as Fannie Mae executives: Franklin D. Raines, former Clinton administration budget director; James Johnson, former aide to Democratic Vice President Walter Mondale; and Jamie Gorelick, former Clinton administration deputy attorney general. All three prominent Democrats earned millions in questionable compensation while serving as top Fannie Mae executives. Raines earned $90 million in his five years as Fannie Mae CEO, from 1999 to 2004; Johnson earned $21 million in just his last year serving as Fannie Mae CEO, serving from 1991 to 1998; and Gorelick earned an estimated $26 million serving as vice chair of Fannie Mae from 1998 to 2003. Franklin Raines Franklin Raines’ problems began in 2004, when Fannie Mae’s regulator, the Office of Federal Housing Enterprise Oversight, or OFHEO, and the Security and Exchange Commission’s top accountant issued reports charging that under Raines’ stewardship Fannie Mae had misstated earnings for three and a half years.
10

The $9 billion restatement of earnings required by the OFHEO and SEC ended up wiping out 40 percent of Fannie Mae’s originally stated profits from 2001 to mid-2004. Raines resigned from Fannie Mae in December 2004, with a $19 million severance package. Raines continued playing the victim until April 2008, when he and two other Fannie Mae top executives were ordered in a civil lawsuit to pay nearly $31.4 million for their roles in what amounted to an Enron-like accounting scandal. A controversy broke out when the Washington Post noted in July 2008 Raines had taken calls from Barack Obama’s presidential campaign seeking his advice on mortgage and housing policy matters. Republican presidential candidate Sen. John McCain ran a television advertisement using the Post article as a source to claim Raines was an Obama adviser. But Raines issued a denial that he was an adviser to Obama or that he had provided the Obama campaign with advice on housing or economic matters. James Johnson James Johnson was appointed to head Obama’s vice presidential selection committee until a controversy concerning an alleged $7 millions in questionable real estate loans he received on favorable terms from failed sub-prime mortgage lender Countrywide Financial surfaced and forced him to resign. The controversy over Johnson began when the Wall Street Journal reported June 7, 2008, that Countrywide had extended to Johnson and Raines millions of dollars in favorable home loans because they were “Friends of Angelo,” or “FoA,” as such preferential borrowers were known in the inner circles of Countrywide. Jamie Gorelick In 1998, Fannie Mae Vice Chairman Jamie S. Gorelick received a bonus of $779,625, despite her alleged involvement in a scandal in which Fannie Mae employees falsified signatures on accounting transactions to manipulate books to meet 1998 earning targets. The targets, in turn, triggered multi-million-dollar bonuses for top executives, including Gorelick. The 1998 bonus reported for then-Fannie Mae Chairman and CEO James Johnson was $1.932 million. Then-Chairman-designate Raines received $1.11 million. After leaving Fannie Mae, Gorelick encountered controversy a second time, over an alleged conflict of interest when a 1995 memo she authored as deputy attorney general at the Justice Department during the Clinton administration surfaced while she was a member of the 9/11 commission. The memo, which outlined a policy that became known as the “Gorelick Wall,” appeared to put in place barriers that barred federal anti-terrorist criminal investigators from accessing various federal records and databases that may have assisted them in their criminal investigations."

As a consequence banking became a far more risky endeavor. Imagine, for example, you head a small bank that lends money to people to buy homes. If the mortgages you issue meet FHA (Federal Housing Authority) standards you can sell them and you are no longer carrying the loan on your balance sheet. As these mortgages were not FHA qualified there was little ability to resell them. Yet, these comprised the majority of those mortgages forced upon them by the Carter/Clinton legislation. A solution was arrived at: Emasculate the Glass-Steagall act that was instituted following the 1929 banking collapse. This act separated saving banks from riskier investment banking. Allowing the two to merger would permit the transfer of these riskier non-FHA mortgages to the investment banking arm to be repackaged as investment vehicles. The Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act* of 1999 successfully gutted the 11

more restrictive aspects of the Glass-Steagle act and paved the way for the ’08 economic collapse. It was the last bill signed by Bill Clinton:
o

"Today what we are doing is modernizing the financial services industry, tearing down those antiquated laws and granting banks significant new authority"
Bill Clinton at the signing of Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act in 1999
o

Clinton had been adamant that he would veto any version of the bill that permitted the merger of any savings bank that had received a less than satisfactory rating from the regulatory authority responsible for instituting the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA). This insured the unabated continuation of minority-lending for mortgages (and the expansion of risk that the banks were attempting to sanitize). *It is relevant to point out that the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act was a product of the Republican Party at the behest of the financial industry. In recent decades, financial institutions had been the largest singular contributors to presidential elections. This was the end of the Clinton administration and the Republican Party wanted to insure a Republican succession. As to be expected: The financial industry’s contribution to George Bush’s election broke all records. Briefly, the bubble burst in Oct, 2008 and here is where we begin to see items 1,2, & 3 materialize:
o

The stock market dropped from over 1400 and eventually bottomed out near 6500. The economy collapsed. Unemployment doubled, people lost their homes and the net worth of the middle class declined by 40%. Major banking and industrial giants became insolvent overnight. The wealthy stock holders in these corporations also suffered substantial losses. This gave the impression of a shared decline and thereby diminished the logical conclusion among the populace that they had been "had". What happened next was as ingenious a fraud that has ever been perpetrated in the history of economics! Under the guise of protecting the savings of American citizens and preserving credit accessibility: Bush and the head of the U.S. treasury Hank Paulson (he previously served as the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Goldman Sachs) in collusion with Congress bailed out a laundry list of international banks and corporations (and thereby restoring the momentary loss endured by the wealthy stockholders- but not that of the middle class*)! Some of the banks were European (even China) without a presence in the U.S. but with connections to U.S banks.
o

"The suspicions that the system is rigged in favor of the largest banks and their elites, so they play by their own set of rules to the disfavor of the taxpayers who funded their bailout, are true. It really happened. These suspicions are valid"// Neil Barofsky, TARP Inspector General, 2012

The Fed Audit
Senator Bernie Sanders*
July 21, 2011

The first top-to-bottom audit** of the Federal Reserve uncovered eye-popping new details about how the U.S. provided a whopping $16 trillion (the national debt is separate from this) in secret loans to bail out American and foreign banks and businesses during the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. An amendment by Sen. Bernie Sanders to the Wall Street reform law passed one year ago this week directed the Government Accountability Office to conduct the study. "As a result of this audit, we now know that the Federal Reserve provided more than $16 trillion in total financial assistance to some of the largest
12

financial institutions and corporations in the United States and throughout the world," said Sanders. "This is a clear case of socialism for the rich, and rugged, you're-on-your-own individualism for everyone else." Among the investigation's key findings is that the Fed unilaterally provided trillions of dollars in financial assistance to foreign banks and corporations from South Korea to Scotland, according to the GAO report: Dollars in billions 1.

NY Federal Reserve Bank Audit Reveals Trillions in Payoffs and China Threaten To Seize Land in USA
Thu, 09/06/2012 - 12:25pm | AmericanPatriot

"A source in the Deutsche Bank explained that in 2008 our financial and monetary system completely collapsed and since that time the banking cartels have been “propping up the system” to make it appear as if everything was fine. In reality our stock market and monetary systems are fake; meaning that there is nothing holding them in place except the illusion that they have stabilized since the Stock Market Crash nearly 5 years ago." "The Deutsche Bank informant says that the cause for the bailout of the banks was a large sum of cash needed quickly to repay China who had purchased large quantities of mortgage-backed securities that went belly-up when the global scam was realized*. When China realized that they had been duped into buying worthless securitized loans which would never be repaid, they demanded the actual property instead. The Chinese were prepared to send their “people” to American shores to seize property as allocated to them through the securitized loan contracts." "Former President Bush and former US Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson told the US Senate that they had to approve a $700 billion bailout or else martial law would be implemented immediately. That money was funneled through the Federal Reserve Bank and wired to China, as well as other countries that were demanding repayment for the fraudulent securitizations." "To further avert financial catastrophe, as well as more debt or property seizure threats by the Chinese, the Euro was imploded there by plunging most of the European countries into an insurmountable free-fall for
13

which they were never intended to recover. All the money that those banks claimed they needed to avert collapse was also sent to the Chinese to add to the trillions of dollars lost during the burst of the housing bubble on the global market".
*Tom: These purchases were made through Morgan Stanley which is 10% owned by China

"Under the guise of “emergency loans” waivers of banking employees and private contractors were given kickbacks. Jamie Dimon , CEO of JPMorgan Chase & Co. and member of the board of directors of the FRBNY, was given an estimated $390 billion in “aid” from the FRBNY. In kind, JPMorgan Chase was used as a money laundering institution during the mortgage-backed securities and derivatives scandal. Dimon was given his seat on the Fed’s board in 2007. He has enjoyed his position throughout the financial crisis that his and several other mega-banks have caused through irresponsible behavior on the global stock market." "Senator Bernie Sanders, who has been calling for a revision of the Fed, told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer , “The conflicts of interest are so apparent that they’re laughable. Here you have the Fed, which is supposed to regulate Wall Street. Then you have the CEO of the largest Wall Street company on the board which [it] is supposed to be regulating. This is the fox guarding the henhouse.” During the “emergency loans” and special privileges given to JPMorgan Chase with the receipt of trillions of dollars at “near-zero interest rates”. "Morgan Stanley was allocated a $108.4 million no-bid contract to assist in the bailout of AIG. Now, Morgan Stanley is falling apart and is classified as insolvent as stocks become worthless on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE). They are selling off non-core assets to “reduce European exposure” to hedge funds and failing financial corporations because of their participation in the mortgage-backed securities and derivatives debacle." Economist Anthony Randazzo of the Reason Foundation wrote: "QE (Quantitative Easing) is fundamentally a regressive redistribution program that has been boosting wealth for those already engaged in the financial sector or those who already own homes, but passing little along to the rest of the economy. It is a primary driver of income inequality.” "The reason is simple. QE drives up the prices of assets, especially financial assets. And most of the financial assets in America are owed by the wealthiest 5 percent of Americans. According to Fed data, the top 5 percent own 60 percent of the nation’s individually held financial assets. They own 82 percent of the individually held stocks and more than 90 percent of the individually held bonds." "Quantitative Easing reinflated the stock market in 2009 and 2010, enabling the wealthy to quickly recover much of their wealth as stocks doubled in value. But the rest of the country, which depends on houses and jobs for their wealth, remained stuck in recession. Put another way, most Americans have most of their wealth tied up in their houses (about 50 percent for most). For the top 5 percent, homes account for only 10 percent of wealth, while financial assets account for between one third and 40 percent."

All this was immensely unpopular and ran counter to the publically perceived foundations of the Republican party. In truth, the record of federal legislation proves that free enterprise with minimal 14

market intervention is no more favored by the Republican Party than the Democratic Party. The only real dispute is over who gets the plunder.
M

As was to be expected, a shocked (naïve and gullible) American public rejected the Republican Party and elected Barack Hussein Obama (see item #5). And, here we get to the most remarkable part of all: this was all achieved (legally) through federal borrowing. This debt is to be repaid in part by extracting money from future earnings of what was once the great American middle class (including the yet to be born) and thru devaluation of the dollar (hyperinflation)!

"There are two ways to conquer and enslave a nation. One is by the sword. The other is by debt."
John Adams

The immediate and obvious 40% loss of middle class wealth is just the tip of the iceberg. Few suspect the monster that lurks beneath the surface. The Fed is increasing the national debt at light speed in order to build a currency reserve held by the banks and expand welfare benefits to the now devastated middle class (at this point the only thing staving off mass riots). The bank held currency reserves (now at record levels) is to insulate them from the losses that will occur when the planned hyperinflation "kicksin". At this moment the bill being handed to every American household is over $134,000! The International Monetary Fund expects this to double in the next eight years. If continued at this rate, by 2035 the same household will owe close to $1,000,000 (in terms of total unfunded liabilities (social security, medic-aid, federal retirement etc. this figure has already been surpassed). Those perpetrating this fraud, fully intend a total collapse of the economy. Expect salvation to come when the United Nations offers a rescue package – with devastating conditions. Now - look again at points 4 thru 7!

She survived Hitler and wants to warn America
Kitty Werthmann :

“Everyone thinks that Hitler just rolled in with his tanks and took Austria by force. No so. We elected him by a landslide – 98 percent of the vote,” she recalls. In 1938, Austria was in deep Depression. Nearly one-third of our workforce was unemployed. We had 25 percent inflation and 25 percent bank loan interest rates. Farmers and business people were declaring bankruptcy daily. Young people were going from house to house begging for food. Not that they didn’t want to work; there simply weren’t any jobs. “We looked to our neighbor on the north, Germany, where Hitler had been in power since 1933.” she recalls. “We had been told that they didn’t have unemployment or crime, and they had a high standard of living."

The Fiscal Cliff Is A Diversion:

The Derivatives Tsunami And The Dollar Bubble "The “fiscal cliff” is another hoax designed to shift the attention of policymakers, the media, and the attentive public, if any, from huge problems to small ones. The fiscal cliff requires that the federal government cut spending by $1.3 trillion over ten years. If we divide $1.3 trillion by ten, it comes to $130 billion per year. This can be done by simply taking a three month vacation each year from Washington’s wars. The Derivatives Tsunami and the bond and dollar bubbles are of a different magnitude. About 95% of the $230 trillion in US derivative exposure is held by four US financial institutions: JP Morgan Chase Bank, Bank of America, Citibank, and Goldman Sachs. With the repeal of Glass-Steagall these honest commercial banks became gambling casinos, like the investment bank, Goldman Sachs, betting not only their own money but also depositor's money on uncovered bets on interest rates, currency exchange rates, mortgages, and prices of commodities.and.equities. These bets soon exceeded many times not only US GDP but world GDP. Indeed, the gambling bets of JP Morgan Chase Bank alone are equal to world Gross Domestic Product. The exposure of these 4 US banks is many multiples of their assets or of their risk capital. The Derivatives Tsunami is the result of the handful of fools and corrupt public officials who deregulated the US financial system. Today merely four US banks have derivative exposure equal to 3.3 times world Gross Domestic Product. When I was a US Treasury official, such a possibility would have been considered beyond science fiction. The situation is so worrying to the Federal Reserve that after announcing a third round of quantitative easing, that is, printing money to buy bonds (both US Treasuries and the banks’ bad assets) the Fed has just announced that it is doubling its QE 3 purchases. In other words, the entire economic policy of the United States is dedicated to saving four banks that are too large to fail*. The banks are too large to fail only because deregulation permitted financial concentration, as if the Anti-Trust Act did not exist.
* “Fascism should rightly be called corporatism, ''''''''''''''''''
as it is the merger of state and corporate power” Benito Mussolini

The purpose of QE is to keep the prices of debt, which supports the banks’ bets, high. The Federal Reserve claims that the purpose of its massive monetization of debt is to help the economy with low interest rates and increased home sales. But the Fed’s policy is hurting the economy by depriving savers, especially the retired, of interest income, forcing them to draw down their savings. Real interest rates paid on CDs, money market funds, and bonds are lower than the rate of inflation. Moreover, the money that the Fed is creating in order to bail out the four banks is making holders of dollars, both at home and abroad, nervous. If investors desert the dollar and its exchange value falls, the price of the financial instruments that the Fed’s purchases are supporting will also fall, and interest rates will rise. The only way the Fed could support the dollar would be to raise interest rates. In that event, bond holders would be wiped out, and the interest charges on the government’s debt would explode.
16

With such a catastrophe following the previous stock and real estate collapses, the remains of people’s wealth would be wiped out. Investors have been deserting equities for “safe” US Treasuries. This is why the Fed can keep bond prices so high that the real interest rate is negative. In human history, such a policy usually produces revolt and revolution, which is what the US so desperately.needs. "If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their Fathers conquered . . . I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies." ,, Thomas Jefferson
The Process Of Confiscating Property:

The Fed Now Owns Your Foreclosed Property Under QE3 Purchases of Toxic Assets
(CONDENSED)
Susanne Posel, Sep 18th, 2012

"Last week, Bernanke announced that the Fed would purchase $40 billion in toxic assets called mortgagebacked securities per month*. While this scheme will devastate the US dollar’s value by the very act of printing more money, there is a secret bailout of certain financial institutions occurring under the radar.
Tom: *if the Federal Reserve follows through on this, it will own the entire market in a decade!

According to the FDIC: • 1 out of 200 homes will be foreclosed upon • 250,000 new households enter foreclosure every 3 months • 6 out of 10 homeowners are delinquent on their mortgage Morgan Stanley (10% owned by China) is the financial institution that took in the mortgage-backed securities and offered their derivatives across the global market. Recently, Morgan Stanley’s stocks have been dramatically dropping and they blame the securitized loans and derivatives as the cause of this plunge into insolvency. This Fed's decision ensures that the banksters get paid, the propping up of the stock market continues and the fall of the American economy occurs in a few short years. Between the cost of $650 billion and $1 trillion, the foreclosure crisis has devastated the American landscape like no other scheme invented by the technocrats. The mega-banks JPMorgan Chase, Wells Fargo, Bank of America who serviced the mortgages that resulted in not only the forcing of Americans out of their homes, but an estimated $7,200 in foreclosure fees to the victims adds insult to injury. Just in Coon Rapids, Minnesota, there have been more than 3,900 foreclosures with an increase in state and local security costs after having placed many of these homeowners on the streets.
17

Bernanke states that it is “the weak job market” that Americans should be focusing on. And while most who listen to the mainstream media may fall for this distraction, the Fed is quietly acquiring massive amounts of property in the US through their purchase of mortgage-backed securities. In fact, in the US, there are an estimated 1.5 million homes currently in the foreclosure process. Under the current QE3, the Fed will own those properties once the foreclosure is complete. Bernanke has not indicated how long the purchases of toxic assets will go on. However this is a skilled and well thought-out plan by the central bankers. The point is to create a huge land-grab within the US.. Not only will the Fed own a massive amount of American land. Foreclosure and eviction can be justified as a recovery effort by Federal Reserve." The American public will be reduced to serfs, chained to a manufactured debt invented by the techocrats and banking cartels."
Note that the Fed is generating debt by the printing of money. This debt is owed not by the Fed but by the American public. This debt is being used to buy "Toxic Assets". "Toxic assets" are the derivative investments that the "too big to fail" banks created out of the Carter and Clinton sub-prime mortgage mandate. This became legal after the Gramm-Leach-Bliley "gutted" the Glass-Steagle act and thereby produced the economic collapse of 2008; the massive loss of employment and the ensuing housing crisis. The Bail-Out of the banks, G.E., G.M.C. etc. is then charged back to the victims. The fed then accelerates the deficit in order to continue propping up the "Too Big to Fail" banks. This, as well as fund the expanded welfare programs (Cloward-Piven Strategy) necessary to stave off mass riots until all the suppression components are in place. Part of the Fed debt is created by purchasing title (toxic assets) to the homes of the very people who lost them in the economic collapse. These titles are now owned by the "Too Big To Fail" banks that were bailed out under TARP. Once the Fed owns these properties there is nothing to prevent them from exchanging them for U.S. treasury notes and bonds held by China or other foreign holders of U.S debt. It doesn't get much neater than this! Deficit spending is simply a scheme for the confiscation of wealth.

Carroll Quigley was a professor of government at the School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University. Bill Clinton was mentored by him. In 1966 he authored a highly regarded book on directed history: "Tragedy and Hope: A History of the World in Our Time" .

From pg. 324: “the powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent private meetings and conferences.” …. I know of the operations of this network because I have studied it for twenty years and was permitted for two years … to examine its papers and secret records. I have objected … to a few of its policies … but in general my
18

chief difference of opinion is that it wishes to remain unknown, and I believe its role in history is significant enough to be known.”
The preceding information on Carroll Quigley is from: "The Idea of Directed History" by Professor Steven Yates 23 December 2011, American Daily Herald Professor Steven Yates:

"What is directed history? It is the idea that history—typically modern and recent history—has been taken in a specific direction by wealthy and powerful people, a relative handful of extended families acting across generations who have very specific long-term goals for the world. Modern history has been directed, nonetheless, and we ignore this at our peril! It is not a “conspiracy theory.”
Consider the words of President Woodrow Wilson from his book "The New Freedom"(1913) pp. 13-14:

People in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of somebody, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it”.

So what did the $134,000 each American household now owes (Tarp and QE1,2,3, etc. ad infinitum) do for the American Middle class:
From: The Economic Collapse blog:

According to numbers that were just released, the number of Americans on food stamps has risen to a new all-time record of 47.71 million. This is more than 50 percent increase during Obama's first four years!). After about a year of slow growth, it looks like the number of Americans on food stamps is starting to skyrocket once again. Today, the wealthiest 1 percent of all Americans now own more wealth than the bottom 95 percent combined. A report from the Economic Policy Institute shows that the average wealth of the top one percent is now 288 times the median wealth for Americans. That number is up more than 50 percent since 2007. The wealthiest 400 families in the United States have about as much wealth as the bottom 50 percent (315 million) of all Americans combined. Corporate profits as a percentage of GDP are at an all-time high. Meanwhile, wages as a percentage of GDP are near an all-time low According to Fed data, the top 5 percent own 60 percent of the nation’s individually held financial assets. They own 82 percent of the individually held stocks and more than 90 percent of the individually held bonds. The six heirs of Wal-Mart founder Sam Walton have a net worth that is roughly equal to the bottom 30 percent of all Americans combined (Tom: built on Chinese imports). 19

  

 

At this point, the poorest 50 percent of all Americans collectively own just 2.5% of all the wealth in the United States. Employees at the six biggest banks made twice the average for all U.S. workers in 2010, based on Bureau of Labor Statistics hourly compensation cost data. The banks spent $146.3 billion on compensation in 2010, or an average of $126,342 per worker, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. Average pay at the banks in 2010 was about the same as in 2007, before the bailouts. Total assets held by the six biggest U.S. banks increased 39 percent to $9.5 trillion on Sept. 30, 2011, from $6.8 trillion on the same day in 2006, according to Fed data.

The following is condensed from a much longer article. Though it is from the height of the depression in 1934, It is astounding in how well it parallels the 2008 economic collapse and what followed!

On May 23, 1933, Congressman, Louis T. McFadden, brought formal charges against the Board of Governors
of the Federal Reserve Bank system, The Comptroller of the Currency and the Secretary of United States Treasury for numerous criminal acts, including but not limited to, CONSPIRACY, FRAUD, UNLAWFUL CONVERSION, AND
TREASON.

Congressman McFadden on the Federal Reserve Corporation Remarks in Congress, 1934
Reprinted by permission 1978 Arizona Caucus Club The Federal Reserve: A Corrupt Institution
"Mr. Chairman, we have in this Country one of the most corrupt institutions the world has ever known. I refer to the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Reserve Banks, hereinafter called the Fed. The Fed has cheated the Government of these United States and the people of the United States out of enough money to pay the Nation's debt several times over. "This evil institution has impoverished and ruined the people of these United States, has bankrupted itself, and has practically bankrupted our Government. It has done this through the defects of the law under which it operates, through the maladministration of that law by the Fed and through the corrupt practices of the moneyed vultures who control it. "Some people think that the Federal Reserve Banks are United States Government institutions. They are not. They are private monopolies which prey upon the people of these United States for the benefit of themselves and their foreign customers; foreign and domestic speculators and swindlers; and rich and predatory money lender. In that dark crew of financial pirates there are those who would cut a man's throat to get a dollar out of his pocket; there are those who send money into states to buy votes to control our legislatures; there are those who maintain International propaganda for the purpose of deceiving us into granting of new concessions which will permit them to cover up their past misdeeds and set again in motion their gigantic train of crime. 20

These twelve private credit monopolies took money out of this Country to finance Japan in a war against Russia. They created a reign of terror in Russia (Bolshevik revolution) with our money in order to help that war along. They instigated the separate peace between Germany and Russia and thus drove a wedge between the allies in a World War. They financed Trotsky's passage from New York to Russia so that he might assist in the destruction of the Russian Empire. They fomented and instigated the Russian Revolution, and placed a large fund of American dollars at Trotsky's disposal in one of their branch banks in Sweden so that through him Russian homes might be thoroughly broken up and Russian children flung far and wide from their natural protectors. They have since begun breaking up of American homes and the dispersal of American children. Mr. Chairman, there should be no partisanship in matters concerning banking and currency affairs in this Country, and I do not speak with any. "The Federal Reserve Bank destroyed our old and characteristic way of doing business. It is the present curse of this Country. It has wrecked every country which has ever given it scope; it fastened down upon the Country the very tyranny from which the framers of the Constitution sought to save us. " A few days before the bill came to a vote, Senator Henry Cabot Lodge, of Massachusetts, wrote to Senator John W. Weeks as follows: This letter is located at the end of this article (pg.29). View by Clicking here. In the eighteen years that have passed since Senator Lodge wrote that letter of warning all of his predictions have come true. The Government is in the banking business as never before. Against its will it has been made the backer of horse thieves and card sharps, bootlegger's smugglers, speculators, and swindlers in all parts of the world. Through the Fed the riffraff of every country is operating on the public credit of the United States Government.

THE GREAT DEPRESSION
Meanwhile and on account of it, we ourselves are in the midst of the greatest depression we have ever known. From the Atlantic to the Pacific, our Country has been ravaged and laid waste by the evil practices of the Fed and the interests which control them. At no time in our history, has the general welfare of the people been at a lower level or the minds of the people so full of despair. Recently in one of our States, 60,000 dwelling houses and farms were brought under the hammer in a single day. 71,000 houses and farms in Oakland County, Michigan, were sold and their erstwhile owners dispossessed. The people who have thus been driven out are the wastage of the Fed. They are the victims of the Fed. Their children are the new slaves of the auction blocks in the revival of the institution of human slavery.

"I am myself persuaded, on the basis of extensive study of the historical evidence, that.. the severity of each of the contractions - 1920-21, 1929-33, and 1937-38 - is directly attributable to acts of commission and omission by the Reserve authorities and would not have occurred under earlier monetary and banking arrangements."
Milton Friedman (1912-2006) Nobel Prize-winning/economic advisor to President Ronald Reagan/

The Scheme of the Fed

A few days before the Fed passed, Senator Root denounced the Fed as an outrage on our liberties. He predicted: 'Long before we wake up from our dream of prosperity through an inflated currency, our gold- which alone could have kept us from catastrophe- will have vanished and no rate of interest will tempt it to return. If ever a prophecy came true, that one did. Before the Banking and Currency Committee, when the bill was under discussion Mr. Crozier of Cincinnati said: 'The imperial power of elasticity of the public currency is wielded exclusively by the central corporations owned by the banks. This is a life and death power over all local banks and all business. It can be used to create or destroy prosperity, to ward off or cause stringencies and panics. By making money artificially scarce, interest rates throughout the Country can be arbitrarily raised and the bank tax on all business and cost of living increased for the profit of the banks owning these regional central banks, and without the slightest benefit to the people. The 12 Corporations together cover and monopolize and use for private gain- every dollar of the public currency and all public revenue of the United States. Not a dollar can be put into circulation among the people by their Government, without the consent of and on terms fixed by these 12 private money trusts. 21

THE UNITED STATES HAS BEEN RANSACKED
The United States has been ransacked and pillaged. Our structures have been gutted and only the walls are left standing. While being perpetrated, everything the world could rake up to sell us was brought in here at our expense by the Fed until our markets were swamped with unneeded and unwanted imported goods (think China) priced far above their value and made to equal the dollar volume of our honest exports, and to kill or reduce our favorite balance of trade. As Agents of the foreign central banks, the Fed try by every means in their power to reduce our favorable balance of trade. They act for their foreign principal and they accept fees from foreigners for acting against the best interests of these United States. We need to destroy the Fed wherein our national reserves are impounded for the benefit of the foreigners. We need to save America for Americans.

SPURIOUS SECURITIES
On April 27, 1932, the Fed outfit sent $750,000 belonging to American bank depositors in gold to Germany. A week later another $300,000 in gold was shipped to Germany. About the middle of May $12,000,000 in gold was shipped to Germany by the Fed. Almost every week there is a shipment of gold to Germany. These shipments are not made for profit on the exchange since the German marks are blow parity with the dollar. (Ever wonder how
Germany rose so fast from economic and industrial devastation to produce the world's mightiest war machine in less than a decade. The Fed financed Hitler's rise to power!)

The Bankers' Acceptance Racket
Mr. Speaker, on the 13th of January of this year I addressed the House on the subject of the Reconstruction Finance Corporation. In the course of my remarks I made the following statement: In 1928 the member banks of the Fed borrowed $60,598,690,000. from the Fed on their fifteen-day promissory notes. Think of it: Sixty billion dollars payable on demand in gold in the course of one single year. The actual amount of such obligations called for six times as much monetary gold as there is in the world. Such transactions represent a grant in the course of one single years of about $7,000,000 to every member of the Fed. Is it any wonder that American labor*, which ultimately pays the cost of all banking operations of this Country, has at last proved unequal to the task of supplying this huge total of cash and credit for the benefit of the stock market manipulators and foreign swindlers? In 1933 the Fed presented the staggering amount of $60,598,690,000 to its member banks at the expense of the wage earners and tax payers of these United States. In 1929, the year of the stock market crash, the Fed advanced $58,000,000,000 to member banks.
*All paper money constitutes a debt (IOU) obligating the citizens of the issuing country to exchange the paper for actual goods and services.

In 1930 while the speculating banks were getting out of the stock market at the expense of the general public, the Fed advanced them $13,022,782,000. This shows that when the banks were gambling on the public credit of these United States as represented by the Fed currency they were subsidized to any amount they required by the Fed. When the swindle began to fall, the bankers knew it in advance and withdrew from the market. They got out with whole skins- and left the people of these United States to pay the piper (The Great Depression)
Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke speaking of the role played by the Federal Reserve in the creation of the Great Depression:

"Regarding the Great Depression, you’re right, we did it."

Ivar Kreuger, the Match King!
They have been peddling the credit of this Government and the [signature of this] Government to the swindlers and speculators of all nations. That is what happens when a Country forsakes its Constitution and gives its sovereignty over the public currency to private interests. Give them the flag and they will sell it. 22

"A few days ago, the President of the United States with a white face and shaking hands, went before the Senate of behalf of the moneyed interests and asked the Senate to levy a tax on the people so that foreigners might know that these United States would pay its debt to them. Former President Bush and former US Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson told the US Senate that they had to approve a $700 billion bailout or else martial law would be implemented immediately. That money was funneled through the Federal Reserve Bank and wired to China, as well as other countries that were demanding repayment for the fraudulent securitizations. Most Americans thought it was the other way around. What does these United States owe foreigners? When and by whom was the debt incurred? It was incurred by the Fed, when they peddled the signature of the Government to foreigners- for a Price. It is what the United States Government has to pay to redeem the obligations of the Fed.

Thieves Go Scot Free
"Are you going to let these thieves get off scot free? Is there one law for the looter who drives up to the door of the United States Treasury in his limousine and another for the United States Veterans who are sleeping on the floor of a dilapidated house on the outskirts of Washington? "It will take twenty years to redeem our Government. Twenty years of penal servitude to pay off the gambling debts of the traitorous Fed and to vast flood of American wages and savings, bank deposits, and the United States Government credit which the Fed exported out of this country to their foreign principals.

"This recession might linger for years. Our economy will lose 5 million more jobs. Unemployment will approach double digits. Our nation will sink deeper into a crisis that, at some point, we may not be able to reverse."

"... more jobs will be lost, more plants will close... you will be making a sacrifice for the next generation. It's a sacrifice you may not have chose to make, but a sacrifice you are nevertheless called to make so that your children and all of our children can grow up in an America that still makes things, that still builds cars, that still strives for a better future."
Barack Hussein Obama, President of the United States Those two quotes speak reams about the unlimited devastation the Fed and their minions (Obama) are willing to unleash on humanity and the unlimited depths they are willing to sink in order to institute their totalitarian agenda. The fact that the American public bought these lies speaks reams about the success of John Dewey's revision of the American educational system. Another:

Fiat Money
Mr. Chairman, last December, I introduced a resolution here asking for an examination and an audit of the Fed and all related matters. If the House sees fit to make such an investigation, the people of these United States will obtain information of great value. This is a Government of the people, by the people, for the people. Consequently, nothing should be concealed from the people. The man who deceives the people is a traitor to these United States. "The man who knows or suspects that a crime has been committed and who conceals and covers up that crime is an accessory to it. Mr. Speaker, it is a monstrous thing for this great nation of people to have its destinies presided over by a traitorous government board acting in secret concert with international usurers. 23

Every effort has been made by the Fed to conceal its powers- but the truth is- the Fed has usurped the Government. It controls everything here and it controls all of our foreign relations. It makes and breaks governments at will. (The
man speaking served for ten years as the Chairman of the House Banking and Currency Committee)

Here is a Fed Note. Immense numbers of the notes are now held abroad. I am told that they amount to upwards of a billion dollars. (Current estimate is $4 Trillion) They constitute a claim against our Government and likewise a claim against our peoples' money to the extent of $1,300,000,000 which has within the last few months been shipped abroad to redeem Fed Notes and to pay other gambling debts of the traitorous Fed. The greater part of our money stock has been shipped to other lands. (Look again at the amounts sent overseas to bail out foreign banks) "Why should we promise to pay the debts of foreigners to foreigners? Why should the Fed be permitted to finance our competitors in all parts of the world? Do you know why the tariff was raised? It was raised to shut out the flood of Fed Goods pouring in here from every quarter of the globe- cheap goods, produced by cheaply paid foreign labor, on unlimited supplies of money and credit sent out of this Country by the dishonest and unscrupulous Fed.
(Think China)

"The Fed are spending $100,000,000 a week buying government securities in the open market and are making a great bid for foreign business. (Currently about $80 Billion a month)They are trying to make rates so attractive that the human hair merchants and the distillers and other business entities in foreign land will come here and hire more of the public credit of the United States Government to pay the Fed outfit for getting it for them.

WorldkEnslavementkPlanned
Mr. Chairman, when the Fed was passed, the people of these United States did not perceive that a world system was being set up here which would make the savings of the American school teacher available to a narcotic-drug vendor in Acapulco. They did not perceive that these United States was to be lowered to the position of a coolie country which has nothing but raw material and heart, that Russia (now China) was destined to supply the man power and that this country was to supply the financial power to an "international superstate" (U.N.). A superstate controlled by international bankers, and international industrialists acting together to enslave the world for their own pleasure? The people of these United States are being greatly wronged. They have been driven from their employments. They have been dispossessed from their homes. They have been evicted from their rented quarters. They have lost their children. They have been left to suffer and die for lack of shelter, food, clothing and medicine. The wealth of these United States and the working capital have been taken away from them and has either been locked in the vaults of certain banks and the great corporations or exported to foreign countries for the benefit of the foreign customers of these banks and corporations. So far as the people of the United States are concerned, the cupboard is bare. It is true that the warehouses and coal yards and grain elevators are full, but these are padlocked, and the great banks and corporations hold the keys. The sack of these United States by the Fed is the greatest crime in history. "Mr. Chairman, a serious situation confronts the House of Representatives today. We are trustees of the people and the rights of the people are being taken away from them. Through the Fed the people are losing the rights guaranteed to them by the Constitution. Their property has been taken from them without due process of law. Mr. Chairman, common decency requires us to examine the public accounts of the Government and see what crimes against the public welfare have been committed "What is needed here is a return to the Constitution of these United States. "Asset currency, the devise of the swindler, should be done away with. The Fed should be abolished and the State boundaries* should be respected. Bank reserves should be kept within the boundaries of the States whose people own them, and this reserve money of the people should be protected so that the International Bankers and acceptance bankers and discount dealers cannot draw it away from them.

*In 1933 the Glass-Steagle act separated investment from saving banks and the individual states eliminated interstate banking. Under Clinton, the Reigle-Neal Interstate Banking and Branching Efficiency Act was passed. This allowed banks to acquire other banks in any other state after Oct. 1, 1995 and thereby reinstited nationwide interstate banking.) The Fed should be repealed*, and the Fed Banks, having violated their charters, should be liquidated immediately. Faithless Government officials who have violated their oaths of office should be impeached and brought to trial. *Repeal of the Fed would require the U.S. treasury to issue the nation's currency. There were two U.S. presidents who actively pursued this. Both were assassinated (Kennedy & Lincoln). During the interrogation of the wife of Lee Harvey Oswald (Kennedy assassain) she stated that the Fed was responsible. Mr. Chairman, the United States is bankrupt: It has been bankrupted by the corrupt and dishonest Fed. It has repudiated its debts to its own citizens. There was no national emergency here when Franklin D. Roosevelt took office excepting the bankruptcy of the Fed- a bankruptcy which has been going on under cover for several years and which has been concealed from the people so that the people would continue to permit their bank deposits and their bank reserves and their gold and the funds of the United States Treasury to be impounded in these bankrupt institutions. Under cover, the predatory International Bankers have been stealthily transferring the burden of the Fed debts to the people's Treasury and to the people themselves (Tarp, QE I, II, III, etc.etc.). They the farms and the homes of the United States to pay for their thievery! That is the only national emergency that there has been here since the depression began.

Roosevelt (Obama) and the International Bankers
Roosevelt did what the International Bankers ordered him to do! Do not deceive yourself, Mr. Chairman, or permit yourself to be deceived by others into the belief that Roosevelt's dictatorship is in any way intended to benefit the people of the United States: he is preparing to sign on the dotted line! "He is preparing to cancel the war debts by fraud! He is preparing to internationalize this Country and to destroy our Constitution itself in order to keep the Fed intact as a money institution for foreigners*. Mr. Chairman, I see no reason why citizens of the United States should be terrorized into surrendering their property to the International Bankers who own and control the Fed. *This is directly out of the Obama playbook! Roosevelt ordered the people to give their gold to private interests- that is, to banks, and he took control of the banks so that all the gold and gold values in them, or given into them, might be handed over to the predatory International Bankers who own and control the Fed. Roosevelt cast his lot with the usurers. He agreed to save the corrupt and dishonest at the expense of the people of the United States. He took advantage of the people's confusion and weariness and spread the dragnet over the United States to capture everything of value that was left in it. He made a great haul for the International Bankers.

Roosevelt Seizes the Gold
"By his action in closing the banks of the United States, Roosevelt seized the gold value of forty billions or more of bank deposits in the United States banks. Those deposits were deposits of gold values. By his action he has rendered them payable to the depositors in paper only. Paper money is the money of slaves, not of free men. If the people of the United States permit it to be imposed upon them at the will of their credit masters, the next step in their downward progress will be their acceptance of orders on company stores for what they eat and wear. Their case will be similar to that of starving coal miners. They, too, will be paid with orders on Company stores for food and clothing, both of indifferent quality and be 25

forced to live in Company-owned houses from which they may be evicted at the drop of a hat. More of them will be forced into conscript labor camps* under supervision. (FEMA recreational facilities?)

* "CCC bill" for veterans defeated by the GOP
Date published: 10/5/2012

http://fredericksburg.com/News/FLS/2012/102012/10052012/728839

The objective of this bill was to put veterans back to work preserving national parks and other federal facilities. The bill was proposed by Obama and modeled after Franklin Roosevelt's..CCC,
It is worth noting here that in April 2009 the Dept. of Homeland Security produced a report listing returning veterans as potential terrorist. Having them located under the watchful eye of a Federal Jobs Administrator would reduce internal security concerns.

At noon on the 4th of March, 1933, FDR with his hand on the Bible, took an oath to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the U.S. At midnight on the 5th of March, 1933, he confiscated the property of American citizens. He took the currency of the United States standard of value. He repudiated the internal debt of the Government to its own citizens. He destroyed the value of the American dollar.

Dictatorship
The International Bankers set up a dictatorship here because they wanted a dictator (Obama) who would protect them. They wanted a dictator who would issue a proclamation giving the Fed an absolute and unconditional release from their special currency in gold, or lawful money of any Fed Bank. Has Roosevelt relieved any other class of debtors in this country from the necessity of paying their debts? Has he made a proclamation telling the farmers that they need not pay their mortgages? Has he made a proclamation to the effect that mothers of starving children need not pay their milk bills? Has he made a proclamation relieving householders from the necessity of paying rent?

Enemies of the People They Rob
They predicted among themselves that they would be able to produce a condition here in which American citizens would be completely humbled and left starving and penniless in the streets. (See the list beginning on pg. 3 of this
paper)

The fact that they made that assertion while they were fomenting their conspiracy against the United States that they like to see a human being, especially an American, stumbling from hunger when he walks. "Something should be done about it, they say. Five-cent meals, or something! But FDR (Obama) will not permit the House of Representatives to investigate the condition of the Fed. FDR will not do that. He has certain International Bankers to serve*. Do they not look to him as the man Higher Up who will protect them from the just wrath of an outraged people. * In 1933, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, in a a letter to “Colonel” Edward Mandell House (Woodrow Wilson’s right hand man) stated: “The real truth of the matter is, as you and I both know, that a financial element has owned the government since the days of Andrew Jackson …” (F.D.R., His Personal Letters 1928 – 1945, ed. Elliot Roosevelt, p. 373). House was instrumental in getting Wilson elected. He also was a founding member of the Fed. Not a single president or major-party nominee or Speaker of the House since John F. Kennedy has questioned the Federal Reserve's control of monetary policy in the U.S. (lesson learned)! But FDR will never do anything to embarrass his financial supporters. He will cover up the crimes of the Fed. Before he was elected, Mr. Roosevelt advocated a return to the earlier practices of the Fed, thus admitting its corruptness. The Democratic platform advocated a change in the personnel of the Fed. These were campaign bait. As a prominent Democrat lately remarked to me; "There is no new deal. The same old crowd is in control."////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// 26

"It's important for people to know that I will make many promises to get their votes."
Barack Hussein Obama The claims of foreign creditors of the Fed have no validity in law. The foreign creditors were the receivers- and the willing receivers- of stolen goods! They have received through their banking fences immense amounts of currency, and that currency was unlawfully taken from the United States Treasury by the Fed. Why should the foreigners be made preferred creditors of the bankrupt U.S.? Why should the U.S. be treated as bankrupt at all? This Government has immense sums due it from the Fed. The directors of these institutions are men of great wealth*. Why should the guilty escape the consequences of their misdeeds? Why should the people of these U.S. surrender the value of their gold bank deposits to pay off the gambling debts of these bankers? Why should Roosevelt promise foreigners that the U.S. will play the part of a good neighbor, 'meeting its obligations'? Let the Fed meet their own obligations. *As hard as it maybe to believe, The international banking system which the Fed is part of controls so much wealth that it could literally erase the current $16.5 Trillion U.S. debt without even feeling it! After some discussion and upon the motion of Mr. Byrns, the petition for Articles of Impeachment was referred to the Committee on the Judiciary. (where it sits today)

"Attacks on McFadden's Life Reported"
Commenting on Former Congressman Louis T. McFaddens's "heart-failure sudden-death" on Oct. 3, 1936, after a "dose" of "intestinal flu," "Pelley's Weekly" of Oct. 14 said: "Now that this sterling American patriot has made the Passing, it can be revealed that not long after his public utterance against the encroaching powers of Judah, it became known among his intimates that he had suffered two attacks against his life. The first attack came in the form of two revolver shots fired at him from ambush as he was alighting from a cab in front of one of the Capital hotels. Fortunately both shots missed him, the bullets burying themselves in the structure of the cab." "He became violently ill after partaking of food at a political banquet at Washington. His life was only saved from what was subsequently announced as a poisoning by the presence of a physician friend at the banquet, who at once procured a stomach pump and subjected the Congressman to emergency treatment."///////////////////////////////////////////// ,, Robert Edward Edmondson ,, ,, New York City, December 17, 1913

My Dear Senator Weeks: Throughout my public life I have supported all measures designed to take the Government out of the banking business. This bill puts the Government into the banking business as never before in our history. The powers vested in the Federal Reserve Board seem to me highly dangerous especially where there is political control of the Board. I should be sorry to hold stock in a bank subject to such dominations. The bill as it stands seems to me to open the way to a vast inflation of the currency. I had hoped to support this bill, but I cannot vote for it cause it seems to me to contain features and to rest upon principles in the highest degree menacing to our prosperity, to stability in business, and to the general welfare of the people of the United States. ////////////////////// Very Truly Yours, . Henry Cabot Lodge Return to text 27

It is doubtful that any other creation of man has wreaked so much havoc on humanity. At the cancerous core lies fractional reserve banking: the legalized lending and investment of more money than is covered by bank assets – literally creating money out of thin air! This, an extension of an even older and more destructive human flaw: The lust for money and power.

From:"The Idea of Directed History", Steven Yates:

”Fractional reserve banking has been in use at least since the 1600s. Wherever used, countries and peoples experienced dislocation and economic depression sometimes leading to political instability and war—but the moneylenders grew rich. Today, these banking leviathans have become wealthy beyond our capacity to imagine it. It is estimated that the Rothschild family, based in the City of London (described as the “wealthiest square mile on Earth”) may control as much as several hundred trillion measured in U.S. dollars"
President Andrew Jackson addressing the bankers who operated the second Central Bank of the united States:

"You are a den of vipers and thieves. I intend to rout you out, and by the Eternal God, I will rout you out!"
Andrew Jackson had it right. The elimination of this disease is a holy undertaking! The following I have known about for years. I am still in a quandary as to whether it was intended it as an abject lesson or, as his followers have demonstrated: an economic philosophy to be adopted! And finally from the grand Guru of radical liberal economics: John Maynard Keynes (and idol of Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke)

"Lenin is said to have declared that the best way to destroy the Capitalist System was to debauch the currency. By a continuing process of inflation, government can confiscate, secretly and unobserved, an important part of the wealth of their citizens. By this method they not only confiscate, but they confiscate arbitrarily; and while the process impoverishes many, it actually enriches some. The sight of this arbitrary rearrangement of riches strikes not only at security, but at confidence in the equity of the existing distribution of wealth Those to whom the system brings windfalls, beyond their deserts and even beyond their expectations or desires, become 'profiteers,' who are the object of the hatred* of the bourgeoisie, whom the inflationism has impoverished, not less than of the proletariat. As the inflation proceeds and the real value of the currency fluctuates wildly from month to month, all permanent relations between debtors and creditors, which form the ultimate foundation of capitalism, become so utterly disordered as to be almost meaningless, and the process of wealth-getting degenerates into a gamble and a lottery." *"The rich must pay their fair share"

If there is one segment of the economy that welcomes the Obama presidency it is the firearms industry. As reported by the NY Times:

Gun sales break records before Christmas
RHEANA MURRAY

28

“Gun dealers requested more than 1.5 million background checks on buyers in December, the highest single-month figure since the stats began being kept — and one that topped the previous record, set in November 2011, CNN reported. More than 100,000 background checks — a requirement for a gun sale — were ordered on December 23, making it the second all-time busiest day for gun buying. The first was set on Black Friday in 2011, when nearly 130,000 requests were made.”
That article was published on Monday, January 02, 2012, now for this year:

Gun sales see record Black Friday/////////
By Kim Peterson Nov 29, 2012

“The day after Thanksgiving saw a record number of background-check requests from gun dealers. The calls came in so fast and furious, in fact, that the FBI centers that handle the requests crashed twice that day, USA Today reports. The overwhelming activity suggests that black Friday was one for the record books for the firearms industry" “The FBI thought it was prepared for the day, particularly after hitting its previous one-day record on Black Friday 2011. That day, the bureau's call center took 129,166 requests.”…
*The total adjusted number of FBI background checks for December 2012 came to 2,237,731. This is an increase of 58.6 percent over December 2011! While, economists consider the price of gold to be the barometer of confidence in the U.S. dollar. The volume of gun sales is the barometer of confidence in Obama! …………………… ……………..The survival industry is also booming! I have read one media article suggesting that record breaking firearm sales mean nothing and simply are due to an increase in hunting as well as a new found interest in firearms by women. Really? The California city of Oakland is bankrupt and cutting back services faster than a “just been Saved” prostitute. The DA of that fine city recently advised Oakland citizens to “load their guns and lock their doors”. This just after the city council of Ranch Cordova approved a measure to allow businesses to equip their properties with perimeter fences of electrified barbwire! Detroit police : "Enter at own risk".

While Americans are purchasing guns by the millions, DHS has ordered 450 million rounds of hollow point ammunition in the last 7 months. Winchester Ammunition, in 2009, was awarded a special contract to supply DHS with 200 million rounds of .40 caliber hollow point ammunition. Source

As reported in a PR Newswire release.: ATK has secured a major Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite
Quantity deal to supply up to 450 million rounds of .40 caliber ammunition to the Department of Homeland Security . . . The 1 year contract with four option years comes at a time when many Americans believe that DHS, along with certain aspects of the military, will soon turn their sights on the American people during some sort of martial law scenario . . . We are proud to extend our track record as the prime supplier of .40 caliber duty ammunition for DHS, ICE,” said Ron Johnson, the president of ATK’s Security and Sporting group.
The Fbo.gov website, in a post published reported that the US Forest Service secured a bid for 300,000 rounds of ammunition that will be delivered to Albuquerque, New Mexico. In total, in the name of 29

"Domestic Terrorism", the U.S. Government has ordered over 750 million rounds of ammunition is the last three years! Consistent with their purchase of Ammunitions, DHS has also placed an order for bullet resistant booths. It is not possible to determine the exact number due to a "non-disclosure" clause in the contract. The existence of the clause tells me that the total, if known, would incite a seriously negative public reaction. More disturbing is this: in 2009 federal legislation (H.R. 645) was submitted to authorize FEMA to establish "National Emergency Centers" designed to detain American citizens against their will. When Congressman Ron Paul was asked about the bill, he responded:

“Yeah, that’s their goal, they’re setting up the stage for violence in this country, no doubt about it!”
Immediately after taking office, Obama directed Janet Napolitano to conduct a national internal security analysis (another)(again). DHS's Extremism and Radicalization Branch, Homeland Environment Threat Analysis Division quickly delivered to his desk a report entitled: Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment 7 April 2009 http://www.fas.org/irp/eprint/rightwing.pdf The first word clearly reveals what he perceives as threat number one to his agenda. As there is no mention of Leftwing extremists, I'm inclined to believe they that have all been assigned to high level political positions (There is evidence to support this.). From the report:

"Rightwing extremism in the United States can be broadly divided into those groups, movements, and adherents that are primarily hate-oriented (based on hatred of particular religious, racial or ethnic groups), and those that are mainly antigovernment, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority, or rejecting government authority entirely. It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration."
,,,,,,,,,,,,Considering these results from Rasmussen polls, most of America has made the list:

         

68% of voters believe the political class doesn’t care what most Americans think. Only 6% now support the political class. Just 23% believe the Federal government today has the consent of the governed. 57% of republicans believe the election was stolen by fraud. A majority say the justice system is unfair to most Americans* Only 53% believe either party represents the voters. 66% believe that the Federal government has too much power. 65 % believe there is too little freedom. 92% favor strict limits on government in order to protect the individual. Heading into the final days of 2012, just 5 percent of voters believed Congress is doing a good or an excellent job.ingle 30

"Rightwing extremists are harnessing this historical election as a recruitment tool. Many rightwing extremists are antagonistic toward the new presidential administration and its perceived stance on a range of issues, including immigration and citizenship, the expansion of social programs to minorities, and restrictions on firearms ownership and use." These are
basic concerns of all conservatives as well as everyone opposing Obama – welcome to the list.

"Historically, domestic rightwing extremists have feared, predicted, and anticipated a cataclysmic economic collapse in the United States. Prominent antigovernment conspiracy theorists have incorporated aspects of an impending economic collapse to intensify fear and paranoia among like-minded individuals and to attract recruits during times of economic uncertainty. Conspiracy Theories involving declarations of martial law, impending civil strife or racial conflict, suspension of the U.S. Constitution, and the creation of citizen detention camps often incorporate aspects of a failed economy."
The Encarta online English Dictionary gives the definition of conspiracy as this : "A secret plan or agreement between two or more people to commit an illegal or subversive act". I daresay the great majority of all crimes committed are a product of conspiracy: If you and your wife decide to replace your home's water heater without getting the legally required permit – both of you are guilty of conspiracy! Do people in power conspire to commit high crimes and treason? History is saturated with examples. Two U.S. presidents were impeached for suspected crimes. Nixon resigned rather than go to trial. 130 government employees went to jail over Watergate. Beyond this, a short list of cabinet members and high officials convicted in other instances, wouldn't fit on this page. Ronald Reagan holds the record for having the most cabinet members imprisoned at one time. In European history it was standard procedure for a king upon taking the throne to imprison all close relatives in the full expectation that they would conspire to depose him. In these instances it was rarely about wealth. Members of the royal family were hardly paupers. It was overwhelmingly the unadulterated lust for power. There is not a reputable geneticist, social historian or psychologist who would declare that basic human character has changed in the past two hundred years, yet there is this dominant propensity to dismiss the existence of "Government Conspiracy" as an unfounded theory! Perhaps one of the best modern examples of a conspiracy is revealed in G. Edward Griffin’s The Creature From Jekyll Island (1994): an account of how the Federal Reserve System was conceived, planned, and instituted. Hillary Clinton even acknowledged one against Bill Clinton and we know she wouldn't lie for anyone. (yeah, right!) More: 33 Conspiracy Theories That Turned Out To Be True

"Antigovernment conspiracy theories and “end times” prophecies could motivate extremist individuals and groups to stockpile food, ammunition, and weapons." This is standard doctrine
for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. There are over six million members in the U.S. Most are located in Utah, Idaho and Wyoming each of which rejected Obama. Senate majority leader Harry Reid is a Mormon so maybe you guys will get a "Pass" (maybe not though – Romney is also a member)

31

"High unemployment, however, has the potential to lead to alienation, thus increasing an individual’s susceptibility to extremist ideas." Unemployed? You just made the list! "Many rightwing extremist groups perceive recent gun control legislation as a threat to their right to bear arms and in response have increased weapons and ammunition stockpiling.
Bought a gun or ammunition lately? You're on the list.

"Both rightwing extremists and law-abiding citizens share a belief that rising crime rates attributed to a slumping economy make the purchase of legitimate firearms a wise move at this time." The fact that both categories of gun owners are lumped together in the same
sentence, makes me think that there is functionally only one category. Own a gun? You're in it! If this bothers you and you're still concerned about your family's safety – get a stick not a gun.

"Rightwing extremist views bemoan the decline of U.S. stature and have recently focused on themes such as the loss of U.S. manufacturing capability to China and India, and China’s investment in U.S. real estate and corporations as a part of subversion strategy." That about
covers 90% of American citizens! Don't like being unemployed or the future being handed to your children? You're a Right Wing" extremeist!

"A prominent civil rights organization (wonder which one?) reported in 2006 that large numbers of potentially violent neo-Nazis, skinheads, and other white supremacists are now learning the art of warfare in the [U.S.] armed forces….Returning veterans possess combat skills and experience that are attractive to rightwing extremists." Now every American veteran is a
potential rightwing terrorist. It's getting harder and harder for Obama to trust anyone outside his own circle . A logical move would be to form his own military!

 "The historical election of an African American president and the prospect of policy changes

are proving to be a driving force for rightwing extremist recruitment and radicalization."
If all else fails – pull out the race card! 

"The possible passage of new restrictions* on firearms and the return of military veterans facing significant challenges reintegrating into their communities could lead to the potential emergence of terrorist groups or lone wolf extremists capable of carrying out violent attacks."
Veterans again.

"The consequences of a prolonged economic downturn—including real estate foreclosures, unemployment, and an inability to obtain credit, criticism about the outsourcing of jobs, and the perceived threat to U.S. power and sovereignty by other foreign powers, could create a fertile recruiting environment for rightwing extremists and even result in confrontations between such groups and government authorities." Washington D.C. is experiencing an
"economic downturn"; the rest of us have been living in the longest recession in American history.

 "Internet and other information age technologies since the 1990s has given domestic

extremists greater access to information related to bomb-making, weapons training, and
32

tactics, as well as targeting of individuals, organizations, and facilities, potentially making extremist individuals and groups more dangerous and the consequences of their violence more severe. Rightwing extremist chatter on the Internet continues to focus on the economy, the perceived loss of U.S. jobs in the manufacturing and construction sectors, and home foreclosures. This trend is likely to accelerate if the economy is perceived to worsen."
If you have any doubts that Big Brother is listening to everything. this should dispel it. Internet suppression is standard in every totalitarian nation and well under way here!

From: ///////Obamacare

Empowers Doctors Toklabel///////// ////Patients Mentally Unfit To Have a Gun
Susanne Posel
Occupy Corporatism,January 19, 2013

"Obamacare is allocating $150 million in taxpayer money to “hire thousands of new mental health professionals and social workers, provide teachers and school officials with training to identify symptoms of mental illness and shore up services for at-risk youths.” "Medicaid and private sector health insurance agencies are expected to offer more comprehensive coverage for those who seek psychiatric attention. By labeling Americans as“under-treated” for any supposed mental condition, this would restrict access to gun purchases in the future as outlined in federal laws already in place." "Obama outlined that he expects medical doctors and psychiatrists to ask patients if they are registered gun owners or have a gun." (Tom: will certain scripts require a police report?)
This is especially ominous. Historically mass murders are committed by governments against unarmed political opponents. Smaller group murders are committed by criminals (Al Capone, Crips, Mafia, etc.). Within Recent decades the media has highlighted the emergence of a new category. The perpetrators in this last group instead of "criminals" have been relabeled as "mentally ill". These target an especially vulnerable and universally heart wrenching victim: innocent children. When it is the common criminals doing the killing, people feel justified in arming themselves against them. The usual criminals are something of a known entity. Further, criminals (as opposed to the insane) usually exhibit some form of predictable behavior, appearance and locale that will alert the public to potential danger. This reinforces the public's sense of justification. If the individual is aware of danger, a successful defense is possible against even an armed assailant. Let's assume for a moment that a government wants to disarm its citizens with minimal resistance. The ideal would be for the people to willingly disarm themselves. How might that be done? Suppose that following one such event we mount an informational campaign with the core argument being: " The criminally mentally ill fall into a group of unpredictable and unrecognizable armed terrorists capable of unspeakable horrors without any known trigger point or justification". To the fear of death, we have now added the great unknown of the distorted mind. How can a defense be mounted against the unknown, unrecognizable and unpredictable? Guns are useless as a defense but are the preferred weapon used by the insane murderer to commit his horrendous acts. Elimination of the weapon then becomes the only logical defense. 33

We have just altered the public mind in some very useful ways. They are now willing to disarm themselves, and the recalcitrant can be labeled as enemies of the public safety. We have now made a connection between gun ownership and insanity. We can now with public support, utilize the medical profession (protectors of public health) to identify gun owners (now criminal), which Government (protectors of public safety) can isolate (imprison). Stalin's Gulags and "reeducational" camps were filled with political opponents labeled as "criminals" and (for lacking other justification) the "mentally ill.

The easiest way to gain control of a population is to carry out acts of terror. The public will clamor for such laws if their personal security is threatened

From the Economic Collapse Blog:

“Greece is on the cutting edge of Europe's economic decline, and people over there are becoming very desperate. The following is an excerpt from a Financial Post article about how the Greek middle class is turning to crime as the depression in that nation gets even worse...” In the once stable neighborhood of Kordelio, the unemployed and drug users gather in the parks, scaring away mothers and children, and crimes like chain snatching are on the rise. Many long-time residents have left, moving abroad or to their families’ villages, leaving behind empty houses, said Evangelia Rombou, 58, who has lived in Kordelio for 22 years. “But it is not just Greece that is grappling with these kinds of issues. Now even countries that had been thought to be "stable" are experiencing significant problems. For example, a massive crime wave has broken out in France. The crime wave in France is being blamed on "austerity", but the government of France still spends far more than it brings in.” “So how bad would things get in France if the French government actually did go to a balanced budget? And how bad would things get in the United States if the federal government was not stealing more than 100 million dollars an hour from our children and our grandchildren?” “Even in the midst of our debt-fueled prosperity we are starting to see glimpses of how desperate people will become when our country is someday forced to live within its means. For example, the following is from a report about an incident that happened in Columbus, Ohio the other day...” Columbus Police sprayed Mace on several people in a crowd that had gathered to sign up for a list to get subsidized housing at a northwest Columbus apartment complex. Police said the crowd started to gather Friday night for the Saturday morning event at The Heritage apartment complex on Gatewood Road in northeast Columbus. Authorities said that its highest number, the crowd reached 2,000 people.
“Our entire economy is a giant mirage. Our prosperity has been purchased by stealing from the future. A few people have been warning that we have completely destroyed our future in the process, but both major political parties just continue to do it and the mainstream media just continues to cheer them on. At some point this con game will end and this economic mirage will disappear. When that happens……”

“Millions of people all over this country are going to become very angry and very desperate”

The oath I took upon enlisting into the Marine Corps in 1971 was as follows:

I Tom Lahman do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice,

So help me God

Please note that defense of the U.S. Constitution is preeminent and supersedes obedience to the President. Obama has made it clear that adherence to the Constitution is a hindrance to his socialist goals of reconstructing this nation into a worker’s paradise where the wealth has been redistributed to its “rightful owners”.

Obama has a problem: Democrats have traditionally found Army bases to be “distasteful” and many
of them located in Democratic stronghold states have been decommissioned, those remaining are mostly administrative in nature. Of the actual combat divisions, the great majority are located in the hard core Republican southern states. Beyond this, the U.S. Army has traditionally been comprised of, predominantly, men from the very Southern states that rejected him as president (40%). Overall close to 60% of the U.S. Military hail from hard core conservative states. Governor Romney released during his presidential campaign a list of 500 retired admirals and generals who publically endorsed him. By contrast, The Daily Caller could only find 7 who supported Obama! Adolph Hitler during his rise to power formed a quasi military army. Known as storm troopers or Brownshirts, their initial purpose was to disrupt meetings of opposing political parties and “influence” the outcome of the public voting (think Black Panthers). As his power increased he began to distrust the formal German army and expanded the Brownshirts to the point their manpower exceeded that of the regular army. He then informed the Liaison officer between the regular army and the Nazi party that he felt the regular army was no longer an adequate defense force: "I regard the Reichswehr (German Army) now only as a training school for the German people. The conduct of war, and therefore of mobilization as well, in the future is the task of the SA (Brownshirts). 02 July 2008, Barack Hussein Obama speaking about forming a Civilian National Security Force:

cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we've set. We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded."
The formation of this force was authorized 23 Jan 2009 by Obama’s Presidential Directive DOD 1404.10. Formally identified as the "Department of Defense Civilian Expeditionary Workforce" its mission is

"We

described as:

“….combat, contingencies, emergency operations; humanitarian and civic assistance activities; disaster relief; restoration of order; drug interdiction; and stability operations of the Department of Defense….."
35

The oath that Barack Obama took when he was sworn as President of the United States is specified in Article II, Section 1, of the Constitution:

I do solemnly swear that I Barack Hussein Obama will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States.
More chilling is a statement he made during the 2008 Philadelphia primary debate:

"...just because you have an individual right does not mean that the state or local government can't constrain the exercise of that right..."
It is inconceivable that Barack Obama could have been legitimately reelected. If the election wasn’t fraudulent ( another 99 percent ) I can think of two other explanations:  The demography of this nation has been rigged to institute a one-party rule. Question:

"If the leadership of this nation with foreknowledge and full intent institutes an immigration program with the objective of creating a minority of the natural citizens": jls This Not Treason?
 The Republican party “dove to the mat”! This is the same as saying that the election was rigged from the beginning and that the outcome was predetermined. A personal friend of mine is closely linked with people in the inner circle of Chicago politics. Prior to the election they were discussing their plans for election night. The person my friend was speaking with said that she was going to the Obama victory party. My friend, humorously, asked what the plan was if Romney won. My friend was told outright, "That's not going to happen." My friend was startled: "It definitely was not meant to express an opinion, I understood it to be a statement of fact!" Joseph Stalin Obama was unelectable, yet we watched Romney refuse time and again to attack Obama on the very weaknesses that would have won Romney the presidency (Romney went to his knees faster than Monica Lewinsky (At least she had the good sense to keep the dress)! The selection of Romney as candidate was in itself suspect. There were at least three other contenders which would have eviscerated Obama. By all appearances, the Republican Party has abdicated and now exists in name only*. This conclusion is easily supported by recent capitulations of the House leadership. This leaves over half** of this nation without representation and under the onslaught of a statist/ socialist agenda bent on destructing the very foundations of this nation. * “…somewhere back after Goldwater was walloped and Taft receded into dull memory and Nock vanished

"It's not the people Who vote that count; it's the people Who count the votes."

into the grave, the Republican Party started taking hormones….. and during the administration of G.W. Bush, it took a corporate junket to Amsterdam for a Sex Change Operation and stayed for a few months afterwards, apprenticed to those charming hostels along the Oudezijds Voorburgwal, learning how to dance in windows and charm the shopper . It proudly wears the Red and is a compliant hostess to anyone laying down cold hard cash…or a facsimile thereof. Talking about Republican Principles today is a brisk scan through the tawdry back pages of the Village Voice hidden inside a copy of Gideon’s Bible and stolen from a motel that charges by the hour.”

**Despite the number of eligible voters increasing by more than eight million since the 2008 elections, voter turnout declined by five million this Election Day, according to a report released by the Bipartisan Policy Commission and the Center for the Study of the American Electorate. Of 126 million eligible voters, 40% didn't vote. Of eligible voters, the Republican share of votes cast was 27% and the Democratic Party's share was 29%. The largest share of eligible voters (40%) voted "none-of-the-above". Those supporting Obama represented a mere 29% of eligible voters. Yet, inexplicably, both parties agreed "this was a mandate"! Add to this the 1982 court case* which ended with the RNP agreeing not to observe, investigate or even comment on voting procedures or results of precincts where there is a racial component. You now have an emasculated Republican party with even less ability to offset the communist/socialist agenda of Barack Obama. A bona fide "conspiracy nut" would label this as specifically contrived to provide an open door for Democratic voter fraud. *This lawsuit was brought by the Democratic Party and alleged the RNP had engaged in illegal voting tactics (essentially the very same things the DNC is now famous for). Based on the fact that the RNP signed a consent decree rather than undergo a trial where all the sordid details would be exposed, is evidence enough that they were guilty as charged. There now is no evading the realization that this nation’s government is controlled by equally corrupt parties (or party) Georgetown University Professor of government Carrol Quigley :

“The argument that the two parties should represent opposed ideals and policies, one, perhaps, of the Right and the other of the Left, is a foolish idea acceptable only to doctrinaire and academic thinkers. Instead, the two parties should be almost identical, so that the American people can ‘throw the rascals out’ at any election without leading to any profound or extensive shifts in policy.....Then it should be possible to replace it, every four years if necessary, by the other party, which will......Still pursue, with new vigor, approximately the same basic policies”. Single acts of tyranny may be ascribed to the accidental opinion of a day; but a series of oppressions, begun at a distinguished period and pursued unalterably through every change of ministers, too plainly prove a deliberate, systematic plan of reducing a people to slavery///////////////////////////////////////////////////////
Thomas Jefferson

“The best way to control the Opposition is to lead it ourselves”
Vladimir llyich Lenin

“We must face the appalling fact that we have been betrayed by both the Democratic and Republican Parties.”
Martin Luther King, Jr. For 34 years Rasmussen has asked the question “Is this nation headed in the right direction?” Never once has there been a majority answer in the affirmative. Never once has the affirmative answer dropped below 20% - until the day Barack Obama took office. 37

Based on the precipitous decline of this nation at the hands of either party, the increasingly desperate voter finds himself forced to choose not the best leader but whoever will do the least damage until someone emerges who can “fix this mess”! This is indeed a very dangerous situation, not so very different than the one faced by Germany in the early 1930’s (the Weimar Republic). They too elected a charismatic promoter of “Hope and Change”* (Hitler's mantra was "Alles muss anders sein!,": literally "everything must be different" which eventually morphed into: "Unite for change"). It is worth noting that Hitler also began his political ascent by authoring a book). Does not the Tea Party offer an alternative? It does not! If there is anything that republican and Democratic parties are in absolute agreement on, it is this: There will never, ever be a viable third party candidate. I you doubt this, you need only research the candidacies of Perot, Nader and Ron Paul. Typically, a third party candidate is funded surreptitiously in order to split the vote, thereby ensuring a win by the chosen candidate. Teddy Roosevelt's Bull Moose party served this purpose; costing Howard Taft (a constitutional conservative) the presidency and thereby electing Woodrow Wilson (alsocialist).

Now, let us consider the Proverbial "elephant in the room": Obama’s citizenship. No matter where you stand on the issue, it is a legitimate question in itself. At the root of all the controversy lies the bigger question: Is the government of these United States willing to be restrained by the United States Constitution? I along with a compelling number of other Americans believe the answer is NO! Obama himself has called for reforming this nation into a collectivist “Democracy” having .a .small.“d”. The only professional investigation conducted (Arpio) found widespread and overwhelming evidence of fraud and yet, Nothing! While Arpio is a brave man, the world is a dangerous place. Why he has not met with a fatal “accident” is an ongoing mystery to me). What is particularly peculiar is that the people (Republican Party) who purportedly stood to gain the most, have refused to address it. They have actually preferred to risk division of the party and this nation rather than do so. It is evident that the man has gone to extreme lengths to conceal something he fears greatly. His early “Point Man”, he has successfully appointed as a U.S. Supreme Court Justice. This, clearly to protect his position in the event that his legal minions fail to suppress all of the multitude of legal challenges that have continually barraged the lower courts (there continues to be spent millions ensuring that every court case is ejected before a single word can be uttered under oath). The woman is sorely lacking in any other qualifications (interesting how this word keeps “popping” up) Most disturbing of all is the blatant extent to which this nation’s “leadership” and judicial system has aided and abetted him at every turn. Within the public arena, everyone who initially expressed concern has either gone silent (or has "Drank the Kool-Aid") or now profess a new found belief in his citizenship (this despite a steady accumulation of evidence to the contrary). One of the first was the very person who accepted his offer to become Secretary of state. A House investigation would absolutely be justified in proving constitutional compliance. The House has the legal ability to subpoena all the records Obama has spent millions to conceal. At first, I was mildly amused and ambivalent, but considering the prevalence of interest and preoccupation on the subject, it would be in the best interest of this nation to resolve it (“putting it all behind us” is not a resolution). A president with nothing to conceal, who puts the interest of this nation foremost would want the issue resolved, would invite a congressional investigation. Yet, Nothing! Under this nation’s standard rules of legal civil procedure the sheer preponderance of evidence could do nothing less than produce a verdict of “guilty as charged”. 38

Like most political scandals the initial crime quickly pales in a flurry of bigger crimes that are committed during the cover-up phase. At this time they are so widespread that the results of a bona fide congressional investigation would likely decapitate the current government and if not precipitate a revolution certainly a reconstruction of this nation’s constitution. I harbor no illusions that the facts of Obama’s citizenship will ever see the sanitizing light of justice focused on them. Throw into this witch’s brew: Ben Ghazi, the dizzying spiral of the national debt, Fast and furious, recess appointments, the massive growth in the food stamp program, QE I,II,III,IV*etc.….., an economy permanently mired in recession, billions lost to “Green” industry defaults, Rice’s disinformation campaign, Obama’s demand for usurpation of congressional power to set debt limit, etc.etc, I have hit only the high points here and yet we now have a stage set unlike any in this nation’s history. There must come a breakinglpoint. ////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// ….

During the seventies there was a study done by the Trilateral Commission to determine the major obstacles to the institution of a one world government. Number one on the list, it was concluded, was the wealth and power of the American middle class. The elimination of this became the primary focus of the world communist movement. The first step was instituted by Jimmie Carter. It wasn't much different from the loan program described earlier. In this one Billions in Federally guaranteed loans were given out to every country south of the border. There was a nearly universal default and the loss was transferred to the American taxpayer: For the following I am indebted to The Economic Collapse Blog. After reading it, you can determine for yourself how well they have succeeded:

1.
 

Today, the wealthiest 1 percent of all Americans own more wealth than the bottom 95 percent combined.

Corporate profits as a percentage of GDP are at an all-time high. Meanwhile, wages as a percentage of GDP are near an all-time low According to Fed data, the top 5 percent own 60 percent of the nation’s individually held financial assets. They own 82 percent of the individually held stocks and more than 90 percent of the individually held bonds. A report from the Economic Policy Institute shows that the average wealth of the top one percent is now 288 times the median wealth for Americans. That number is up more than 50 percent since 2007. The wealthiest 400 families in the United States have about as much wealth as the bottom 50 percent of all Americans combined. The six heirs of Wal-Mart founder Sam Walton have a net worth that is roughly equal to the bottom 30 percent of all Americans combined. At this point, the poorest 50 percent of all Americans collectively own just 2.5% of all the wealth in the United States. Nearly 500,000 federal employees now make at least $100,000 a year. 39

   

  

In 2006, only 12 percent of all federal workers made $100,000 or more per year. Now, approximately 22 percent of all federal workers do. If you can believe it, there are 77,000 federal workers that make more than the governors of their own states do. U.S. taxpayers spend more than 20 times as much on the Obamas as British taxpayers spend on the royal family.

2.

Ten years ago, the United States was ranked number one in average wealth .per adult. In 2010, the United States has fallen to seventh. In the 2009.“prosperity index” published by the Legatum Institute, the United States .was ranked as just the ninth most prosperous country in the world. That.was down five places from 2008   According to the Pew Research Center, 61 percent of all Americans were "middle income" back in 1971. Today, only 51 percent of all Americans are. recent survey discovered that 40 percent of all Americans have $500 or less in savings. A different recent survey found that 28 percent of all Americans do not have a single penny saved for emergencies.

3.

The United States now has the third worst poverty rate among the advanced nations tracked by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. It looks like the unemployment numbers are likely to get even worse. According to Gallup, unemployment in the United States shot up very sharply during the month of November. Since the election, dozens of large companies have announced major layoffs.  For the first time ever, more than a million public school students in the United States are homeless. That number has risen by 57 percent since the 2006-2007 school year. 

Median household income in America has fallen for four consecutive years. Overall, it has declined by over $4000 during that time span. The average American family's net worth dropped almost 40% between 2007 and 2010, according to a triennial study released by the Federal Reserve. Right now, approximately 48 percent of all Americans are either considered to be "low income" or are living in poverty. Family homelessness in the Washington D.C. region (one of the wealthiest regions in the entire country) has risen 23 percent since the last recession began. Approximately 57 percent of all children in the United States are living in homes that are either considered to be either "low income" or impoverished. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, an all-time record 47 percent of all Americans live in a home where at least one person receives financial assistance from the federal government. Back in 1983, that number was less than 30 percent. Electricity bills in the United States have risen faster than the overall rate of inflation for five years in a row.


"Under my plan, the cost of electricity must necessarily skyrocket!"
Obama during January 2008 interview with the San Francisco Chronicle.

 

There are now 20.2 million Americans that spend more than half of their incomes on housing. That represents a 46 percent increase from 2001. Families that have a head of household under the age of 30 have a poverty rate of 37 percent. The number of Americans on food stamps has risen to a new all-time record of 47.71 million. This is more than 50 percent increase during Obama's first four years!). After about a year of slow growth, it looks like the number of Americans on food stamps is starting to skyrocket once again. Back in the 1970s, about one out of every 50 Americans was on food stamps. Today, about one out of every 6.5 Americans is on food stamps. It is being projected that half of all American children will be on food stamps at least once before they turn 18 years of age. From the beginning of Obama’s first term to the end of it, approximately 4.6 million jobs disappeared. But the number of people on food-stamps increased by 17 million. According to one calculation, the number of Americans on food stamps now exceeds the combined populations of "Alaska, Arkansas, Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Utah, Vermont, West Virginia, and Wyoming." Food banks all over America are reporting that more needy families than ever before are showing up to get food. Apparently all these homeless hungry people are proving to be an inconvenient embarrassment to many of America's major cities. The following are some of the cities that have attempted to ban feeding the homeless.... From the Economic Collapse Blog: Philadelphia Mayor Nutter recently banned feeding homeless people in many parts of Philadelphia where homeless people are known to congregate.... Orlando Last June, a group of activists down in Orlando, Florida were arrested by police for feeding the homeless in defiance of a city ordinance.... Houston Down in Houston, a group of Christians was recently banned from distributing food to the homeless, and they were told that they probably would not be granted a permit to do so in the future even if they applied for one.... Dallas Dallas has also adopted a law which greatly restricts the ability of individuals and ministries to feed the homeless.... Las Vegas A few years ago, Las Vegas became the first major U.S. city to specifically pass a law banning the feeding of homeless people.... 41

New York City New York City has banned all food donations to government-run homeless shelters because the bureaucrats there are concerned that the donated food will not be "nutritious" enough. The following is from a recent Fox News article....

The value of the U.S. dollar has declined by more than 96 percent since the Federal Reserve was first created. 62 percent of middle class Americans say that they have had to reduce household spending over the past year. Many Americans are trying to make ends meet for their families by going into more debt. Consumer borrowing hit another brand new record high in October

4.

When you total up all working age Americans that do not have a job in .America today, it comes to more than 100 million*. It looks like the .unemployment numbers are likely to get even worse. According to Gallup,.unemployment in the United States shot up very sharply during the month.of November.

*"John Williams’ Shadow Government Statistics"(SGS) is an electronic newsletter service that exposes
and analyzes flaws in current U.S. government economic data and reporting, as well as in certain,privatesector numbers, and provides an assessment of underlying economic and financial conditions, net of financial-market and political hype. The seasonally-adjusted SGS Alternate Unemployment Rate (top line) includes SGS-estimated long-term discouraged workers, who were defined out of official existence in 1994. That estimate is added to the BLS estimate of U-6 unemployment, which includes short-term discouraged workers. (Tom: This gives a current unemployment figure of close to 23%) The U-3 (bottom line) unemployment rate is the monthly headline number. The U-6 (middle line) unemployment rate is the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ (BLS) broadest unemployment measure, including short-term discouraged and other marginally-attached workers as well as those forced to work parttime because they cannot find full-time employment.

42

Since the election, dozens of large companies have announced major layoffs. Overall, large companies have announced the elimination of more than 100,000 jobs since November 6th. According to the Wall Street Journal, of the 40 biggest publicly traded corporate spenders, half of them plan to reduce capital expenditures over the coming months. In 1950, more than 80 percent of all men in the United States had jobs. Today, less than 65 percent of all men in the United States have jobs. Over the last 4 years the number of people on disability has risen more than 7 times faster than the number of people with jobs. The U.S. economy continues to trade good paying jobs for low paying jobs. 60 percent of the jobs lost during the last recession were mid-wage jobs, but 58 percent of the jobs created since then have been low wage jobs. During Barack Obama's first four years the number of Americans "not in the labor force" increased by nearly 8.5 million. During the entire decade of the 1980s (the previous recession) the number of Americans "not in the labor force" only rose by about 2.5 million. The number of jobs at new small businesses continues to decline. According to economist Tim Kane, the following is how the decline in the number of startup jobs per 1000 Americans breaks down by presidential administration... Bush Sr.: 11.3 - Clinton: 11.2 - Bush Jr.: 10.8 - Obama: 7.8 The percentage of working age Americans with a job has been under 59 percent for 39 months in a row. In September 2009, during the depths of the last economic crisis, 58.7 percent of all working age Americans were employed. In November 2012, 58.7 percent of all working age Americans were employed. It is more then 3 years later, and we are in the exact same place.

Under Obama 11,327 pages of new Federal Regulations have been added.

"The more corrupt the state, the more numerous the laws."
Cornelius Tacitus (55 - 117 A.D.)

"When you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who http://www.americanthinker.com/2013/01/hijacking_rights.html produce nothing - When you see that money is flowing to those who deal, not in goods, but in favors - When you see that men get richer by graft and by pull than by work, and your laws don’t protect you against them, but protect them against you - When you see corruption being rewarded and honesty becoming a self-sacrifice - You may know that your society is doomed." , Ayn Rand, "Atlas Shrugged", 1957

5. The officially announced U.S. national debt is now up to 16.5 trillion dollars* ,, (an increase of nearly 50% since Obama first took office)
*From a recent article in the Wall Street Journal:

"The actual liabilities of the federal government—including Social Security, Medicare, and federal employees' future retirement benefits—already exceed $86.8 trillion, or 550% of GDP. For the year ending Dec. 31, 2011, the annual accrued expense of Medicare and Social Security was $7 trillion. Nothing like that figure is used in calculating the deficit. In reality, the reported budget deficit is less than one-fifth of the more accurate figure."
*Tom: $16.3 trillion exceeds 100% of the total value of all goods and services created within this country within the space of a year (Gross Domestic Product - GDP). Sixteen trillion dollar bills stacked one on top of the other would measure more than 1 million miles high, which would reach to the moon and back more than twice. Under current rates of expansion The International Monetary Fund expects the U.S. debt to increase to 200% of GDP in 2020 and nearly 700% by 2035. The interest on this debt will shortly become the single largest cost borne by the U.S. Government (paid for by working American citizens). It is now entitlements (62%). The average rate of interest on U.S. government debt was 2.534 percent at the end of November. Back in the year 2000, the average rate of interest on U.S. government debt was 6.638 percent. If we were at that level today, the U.S. government would be paying out more than a trillion dollars a year just in interest on the national debt. At This point it is hard to imagine anything less than a total economic collapse. The consequences of this will make the Great Depression look like a "Bull" market. In 2002 Ben Bernanke gave a speech where he expressed his monetary philosophy. He said:

"The U.S. government (Fed) has a technology, called a printing press that allows it to produce as many U.S. dollars as it wishes at no cost. We can always fly around in helicopters and dump out bales of it"
The title of Bernanke's speech was: "Deflation: Making Sure 'It' Doesn’t Happen Here" Since that time he has demonstrated a fanatical adherence to this philosophy. Amongst a myriad of unadmiring conservative economists he has since been known as "Helicopter Ben"!

The federal government has run a national deficit of $292 billion dollars during the first two months of fiscal 2013. That figure is $57 billion higher than it was during the same period last year. Government debt continues to soar wildly out of control and at some point all of that debt is absolutely going to crush us. Today, the U.S. national debt is more than 5000 times larger than it was when the Federal Reserve was originally created back in 1913 (since then the dollar has lost 97% of its value). Government spending in America has gone up in every year since 1954, regardless of whether Republicans or Democrats are in charge 44

During the first four years of the Obama administration, the U.S. government accumulated about as much debt as it did from the time that George Washington took office to the time that George W. Bush took office!

Tom: The only reason that the Fed's monetary policy hasn't utterly collapsed this nation's economy is a result of the dollar being the international medium of exchange. Around the world, individual nations are holding so many dollars* that abandoning it would be costly. However, if these nations conclude that the dollar's value is declining so fast that they have no choice but to unload it while it is still worth something (anything!)! It will happen!

Will The Chinese Renminbi Replace The U.S. Dollar As The Primary Reserve Currency Of The World?
By Michael, on October 5th, 2012

"Most Americans have no idea what a tremendous advantage the United States possesses by having the primary reserve currency of the world, and most Americans also have no idea how close the U.S. dollar is to losing that status. For the past 40 years, the vast majority of all global trade (including the buying and selling of oil) has been done in U.S. dollars. That is still the case today, but things are starting to shift. All over the globe international agreements are being made to move away from the U.S. dollar and to use other currencies in global trade. The second largest economy in the world, China, has been particularly aggressive in seeking to change the existing financial order. As you will see below, China has been running all over the planet making agreements with other nations to start conducting an increasing amount of trade in currencies other than the U.S. dollar. And of course the Chinese are heavily promoting their own currency - the renminbi. So why is this happening? Well, for one thing, the truth is that the United States is not the only superpower in the world anymore. The Chinese economy is actually projected to become larger than the U.S. economy by 2016, and by some measurements the Chinese economy is already larger. So Chinese leaders have been very open about the fact that they believe that it just doesn't make sense that the vast majority of all global trade should continue to be conducted in U.S. dollars, especially considering the reckless money printing that the Federal Reserve has been doing. At a time when the status of the U.S. dollar is already slipping, QE3 is deeply undermining confidence in U.S. currency. And when the U.S. dollar does lose reserve currency status, the consequences for the United States are going to be absolutely catastrophic. The following are just some of the international currency agreements that China has made in the last couple of years.... Germany (See Here), Russia (See Here), Brazil (See Here), Australia (See Here), Japan (See Here), Chile (See Here), United Arab Emirates (See Here), Brazil, Russia, India and South Africa (See Here) Most U.S. economists dismiss this threat by pointing out that China has stockpiled so many U.S. dollars and so much U.S. debt that if anything happens to the U.S. financial system China would be significantly damaged as well. Sadly, that is not how the Chinese see things. They see us as "the competition", and they very much plan on coming out on top in the end. Right now, the Chinese are stockpiling mind blowing amounts of gold. They are preparing for the day when the U.S. dollar crashes and when hard assets will be the place to be.
45

The following is an excerpt from a recent article by Christopher K. Potter, the president of Northern Border Capital Management:

For three thousand years China has been at the forefront of monetary innovation. It was the first to legalize gold money in the tenth century BC and two millennia later it issued the world’s first paper currency. Fast forward to 2012 and China is at it again, eclipsing Australia as the largest producer of gold and increasing its monetary gold reserves at an alarming rate. Five years ago China surpassed the US in gold production and five years from now it will own more gold than the US Federal government. Do not dismiss this as just another example of China’s insatiable appetite for natural resources. It is not. China is preparing for a world beyond the inconvertible paper dollar, a world in which the renminbi, buttressed by gold, becomes the dominant reserve currency. The Chinese government has removed all restrictions on personal ownership of gold; legalized domestic gold exchange traded funds; is currently purchasing 100% of domestic gold mine production; has imported over 750 tons of gold in the last 12 months(27% of global output) Lest anyone doubt China’s resolve, just consider the following: stated publically its intention to add 1,000 tons per year to its central bank gold reserves; and is buying major stakes in foreign gold mining companies. The scale of this initiative is extraordinary. When the U.S. financial system crashes, what do you think the rest of the world is going to want - paper U.S. currency that is rapidly becoming worthless or renminbi backed by gold? And China is gobbling up gold mining operations all over the planet at a staggering rate. I discussed this extensively in a previous article that you can find here. All of this demand has kept the value of the U.S. dollar up. But if the rest of the globe started rejecting the dollar, it would drop like a rock. When the value of the dollar declines, imports become more expensive. So the price of oil would go higher and you would pay more for gasoline at the gas pump. And since just about everything is made outside the country these days, just about everything you buy at Wal-Mart would become significantly more expensive. So enjoy those cheap imports while you still can. The days of the U.S. dollar being the sole primary reserve currency of the world are numbered, and when the dollar dies it is probably going to happen very rapidly."

The majority of Federal Reserve Notes are held outside of the U.S. ( approx. $4 trillion). It is estimated that More than 70% of hundred-dollar notes and nearly 60% of twenty and fifty-dollar notes are held abroad. As inflation begins to gain steam, foreign holders will find that other nations will begin to refuse to accept them as payment for goods. The only place left will be the United States, where we are required by law to accept them. These foreign held reserves will begin to flood into this country creating 46

an inflationary "Firestorm" or "self-feeding inferno": every newly arrived dollar will devalue those already here and thereby attracting even more. This is exactly the process that devastated the Weirmar Republic following WWI: In 1914, before World War I, a loaf of bread in Germany cost the equivalent of 13 cents. Two years later it was 19 cents, and by 1919, after the war, that same loaf was 26 cents. But one year later a German loaf of bread cost $1.20. By mid-1922, it was $3.50. Just six months later, a loaf cost $700, and by the spring of 1923 it was $1,200. Six months later it cost $2 million to buy a loaf of bread. One month later, it cost $670 million, and the month after that $3 billion. Within weeks it was $100 billion, at which point the German mark completely collapsed..///////////////////////////////////////////////////// Federal reserve notes are in effect an IOU entitling the holder to exchange the bill for tangible goods or services. Devaluation would increase the price of imports while American exports and domestic investments would go for "bargain basement" prices to holders of appreciating currencies. At this point the American economy will fall into a depression far more severe than this nation has ever endured. American citizens will be incapable of competing with this currency deluge. A huge chunk of American real estate and businesses will become foreign owned. Along with this will come a massive increase in immigration. Last year, 10% of all the homes sold in California were bought by China. Such foreign purchasers explain the unanticipated increase in home sales and the rise in prices being applauded by the White House. Today (1-11-2013) the Heritage Foundation issued a report announcing that last year U.S. investment by China broke all records! Equally if not more frightening is this: regardless of foreign legally (and otherwise) contribute to political campaigns and "interests". And this, my friends, is the future and legacy socialist/progressive presidents, senators and representatives nation. ownership; "American" corporations can influence legislation favorable to foreign that a succession of corrupt, unethical, have bequeathed to the citizens of this

Charley Reese
From a column written for the Orlando Sentinel newspaper in 1985:

One hundred senators, 435 congressmen, one President, and nine Supreme Court justices equates to 545 human beings out of the 300 million are directly, legally, morally, and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague this country. I excluded the members of the Federal Reserve Board because that problem was created by the Congress. In 1913, Congress delegated its Constitutional duty to provide a sound currency to a federally chartered, but private, central bank. I excluded all the special interests and lobbyists for a sound reason. They have no legal authority. They have no ability to coerce a senator, a congressman, or a President to do one cotton-picking thing. I don't care if they offer a politician $1 million dollars in cash. The politician has the power to accept or reject it. No matter what the lobbyist promises, it is the legislator's responsibility to determine how he votes. Those 545 human beings spend much of their energy convincing you that what they did is not their fault. They cooperate in this common con regardless of party. What separates a politician from a normal human being is an excessive amount of gall. No normal human being would have the gall of a Speaker, who stood up and criticized the President for creating deficits. The President can only propose a budget. He cannot force the Congress to accept it. The Constitution, which is the supreme law of the land, gives sole responsibility to the House of
47

Representatives for originating and approving appropriations and taxes. Who is the speaker of the House? John Boehner. He is the leader of the majority party. He and fellow House members, not the President, can approve any budget they want. If the President vetoes it, they can pass it over his veto if they agree to. It seems inconceivable to me that a nation of 300 million cannot replace 545 people who stand convicted -by present facts -- of incompetence and irresponsibility. I can't think of a single domestic problem that is not traceable directly to those 545 people. When you fully grasp the plain truth that 545 people exercise the power of the federal government, then it must follow that what exists is what they want to exist. If they do not receive social security but are on an elite retirement plan not available to the people, it's because they want it that way. There are no insoluble government problems. Do not let these 545 people shift the blame to bureaucrats, whom they hire and whose jobs they can abolish; to lobbyists, whose gifts and advice they can reject; to regulators, to whom they give the power to regulate and from whom they can take this power. Above all, do not let them con you into the belief that there exists disembodied mystical forces like "the economy," inflation," or "politics" that prevent them from doing what they take an oath to do.

A staggering one out of three Illinoisans today lives in or near poverty — the peak of a continued climb over three decades, a new study finds. The study: "Illinois' 33%: Report on Illinois Poverty," is based on 2011 U.S. Census Bureau data.

Nearly 15,000 retired federal workers are collecting federal pensions for life worth at least $100,000 annually. Latinos at 57 percent are the most likely to use means-tested benefit programs, 6 percent of those from the United Kingdom did. The rate for native-born Americans is 23 percent. 48

more than 100 million Americans are enrolled in at least one welfare program run by the federal government. And that does not even count Social Security or Medicare. Overall, there are almost 80 different "means-tested welfare programs" that the federal government is currently running. See: benefits.gov The welfare state has grown by nearly 19% under Obama – an increase of Almost $1 Trillion a year When you account for all government transfer payments and all forms of government employment, more than half of all Americans are now at least partially financially dependent on the government. In 2012, the government spent nearly $30,000 per American household. The average American household’s share of federal spending in 2012 was $29,691, or roughly two-thirds of median household income. The government collected $20,293 per household in taxes in 2012, resulting in a budget deficit of $9,398 per household in 2012. In 1965, only one out of every 50 Americans was on Medicaid. Today, approximately one out of every 6 Americans is on Medicaid. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, an all-time record 47 percent of all Americans live in a home where at least one person receives financial assistance from the federal government. Back in 1983, that number was less than 30 percent. Obamacare will spend $1.7 trillion over 10 years on its coverage expansion provisions alone, including a massive expansion of Medicaid and federal subsidies for the new health insurance exchanges. This means that Obamacare will increase federal health spending by 15 percent Social Security has ran a deficit for the second year in a row. According to the 2012 trustees report, Social Security spent $45 billion more in benefits in 2011 than it took in from its payroll tax. After adjusting for inflation, annual deficits are expected to reach $95 billion in 2020 and $318.7 billion in 2030 and the trust fund finally runs out in 2033. Michael Tanner, director of health and welfare studies at the Cato Institute, reports that the 2012 poverty rate “has risen to 15.1 percent of Americans, the highest level in nearly a decade.” In 2012, “the federal government will spend more than $668 billion on at least 126 different programs to fight poverty,” in addition to “welfare spending by state and local governments which adds $284 billion to that figure,” writes Tanner On a per capita basis, this roughly $1 trillion a year in welfare spending “amounts to $20,610 for every poor person in America, or $61,830 per poor family of three,” The median income for a U.S. worker in 2012 was $50,678. This is a decline of 8.2% since Obama first took office. Now that 47% of America is dependant (in some form) on the U.S. government, it is useful to recall what Alan Green span said regarding benefit payments:

Even if they do graduate from college, most of our young men still can't find a decent job. An astounding 53 percent of all Americans with a bachelor's degree under the age of 25 were either unemployed or underemployed during 2011. Nearly half of all Americans ages 25 to 34 live below the national poverty level. Recently it was announced that total student loan debt in the United States has passed the one trillion dollar mark. Youth unemployment in the United States is now at the highest level that we have seen since World War since World War II. 2011, SAT scores for young men were the worst that they had been in 40 years Today, American 15-year-olds do not even rank in the top half of all advanced nations when it comes to math or science literacy.

*Tom: Restoring the American economy absolutely cannot be done without addressing this. Yet, none of the candidates during the past presidential election did so (other than some vague comments about rectifying Chinese currency manipulation). The truth is American capacity to react has been emasculated. If trade barriers were enacted this nation could be sued under the WTO laws and we would lose. If we chose to ignore this and proceeded to restore the U.S. economy, China as the foreign nation that holds the single largest portion of the U.S. debt ($1.2 trillion) would likely dump their holdings of U.S. Debt along with their reserves of the dollar and thereby devastate what little remains of the value of the dollar!

Martin Khor gave a prophetic presentation at the World Economic Forum (Devos, Switzerland, 28-Jan2000). The following is an excerpt:

"It is simply not true that we are all gainers and there are no losers, trade Liberalization can (and often) causes imports to surge without a corresponding surge in exports. This can cause the widening of trade deficit, deterioration in the balance of payments and the continuation or worsening of external debt, all of which constrain growth prospects and often result in persistent stagnation or recession."
Curiously, in his paper Martin Khor was referring to small "developing" nations. He likely would have been shocked at the suggestion that, twelve years later, the United States would epitomize and vindicate his concern. While the WTO's glowing preamble lists the goals of "raising living standards", "ensuring full employment" and "steadily improving income", anyone with an elementary grasp of economics could foresee the materialization of Ross Perot's "Giant Sucking sound" on an international scale! Another elementary law of economics: A nation cannot be a military power without first being an economic power. We must now confront the realization of a future where Communist China is the world's foremost industrial and military power.

"It is at a time like this, in the face of an approaching economic collapse, that the intellectuals are preaching egalitarian notions.

When the curtailment of government spending is imperative, they demand more welfare
projects. When the need for men of productive ability is desperate, they demand more equality for the incompetents. When the country needs the accumulation of capital, they demand that we soak the rich.

When

the country needs more savings, they demand a 'redistribution of income'. They demand more jobs and less profits -- more jobs and fewer factories- more jobs and no fuel, no oil, no coal, no pollution -- but, above all, more goods for free to more consumers, no matter what happens to jobs, to factories or to producers."

WHAT MUSLIM-AMERICANS REALLY BELIEVE
by Joseph Farah, December 7, 2012

Before the presidential election, I got the idea to commission a scientific poll to find out what MuslimAmericans really think – and how it might affect their votes. The results were eye-opening and alarming. They should be to every American who believes in the U.S. Constitution and Judeo-Christian morality:

Nearly half of those polled, a scientific sampling of 600, said parodies of Muhammad should be criminally prosecuted with offenders given punishments as severe as the death penalty; 40 percent of Muslims believe they should not be judged by U.S. law and the Constitution, but by Shariah standards and Islamic judges;
Tom: France, Germany, and Britain have allowed this. Some U.S. states are beginning to.

Only 30 percent believe Christians have a right to evangelize Muslims; (Tom: nearly all muslim nations prohibit this by law – with severe penalties!) 20 percent say muslim men should be allowed to have more than one wife; 58 percent said any criticism of their religion should not be allowed under the Constitution – even while nine of 10 said they support the First Amendment; One in three said Israel has no right to exist or were uncertain about it; 72 percent said they would definitely be voting for Barack Obama, while another 8.5 percent were leaning in that direction; only 11 percent were supporting Mitt Romney at the time – just days before the November vote; About 55 percent said the U.S. is generally on the right track.*

 

 

*Tom: For 34 years Rasmussen Polling has asked this question in national polls. Never once has there been a majority answer in the affirmative. Never once has the affirmative answer dropped below 20% until the day Barack Obama took office.

"Now, maybe you question the authenticity or reliability of this survey. Maybe you think it was biased. Maybe you think the sampling of Muslims, 98 percent of whom have U.S. citizenship, wasn’t large enough." "Well, shortly after WND commissioned this survey by respected pollster Fritz Wenzel, another similar survey was commissioned by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR)*, which bills itself as a Muslim civil-rights organization but which in fact is a Muslim Brotherhood front group."
*Tom: The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is the primary representative group for muslims within the U.S. For an eye-opener: here, here, here ,,

The results were strikingly similar – at least on the questions asked in both surveys. This CAIR survey, conducted on a smaller sampling of 500, received extensive coverage by the media. The CAIR survey found:
54

 

68 percent of Muslim-Americans planned to vote for vote for Obama with 7 percent going for Romney; 66 percent said they identify with the Democratic Party, while only 9 percent affiliated as Republicans.

In other words, the CAIR survey validates the Wenzel poll – even though it didn’t seek answers on some of the more troubling issues of the law and constitutional liberties. The Pew Research Center estimates America is home to 2.6 million Muslims. Groups like CAIR put the numbers much higher – by a factor of two or three times. Whatever the real numbers are, Americans have reason to be concerned about continued immigration of Muslims into the U.S. when so many already here, including those who have established citizenship, have values and beliefs that stand in stark contrast to the Constitution and the values and beliefs that shaped it. Already, massive immigration of Muslims has changed the very character of much of Europe, where special Shariah courts have been established, creating societies with entirely different legal standards. Do we really want that for America? In fact, we need to ask ourselves how many people who took oaths to uphold the Constitution to obtain their citizenship really meant it. Is that standard sufficient for Muslims, who are ,, ,,,,, encouraged by their faith to deceive if it furthers the cause of Islam?*
*This is extremely significant: If the guiding principal of Islamic society; the Koran preaches: "The end justifies the means" (it does) then disobedience to any law becomes justified and in fact encouraged and defensible as committed "in defense of Islam" (consider the Koran Chapter 9 verse 5:" Slay the infidels wherever you find them"). This literally nullifies the U.S. Constitution as well as our entire judicial system! For a muslim to reject basic tenets of Islam is to disavow the faith and under koranic law, every other muslim is obligated to slaughter him*, as well as any other muslim attempting to shield him! It is absurd to believe a muslim will shed 1300 years of Islamic culture and the basic tenets of his religion upon the simple act of crossing a border! The Muslim concept of law is so far removed from the American concept that the two cannot be integrated. It is for this reason that there is a huge outcry among muslims for a legal exclusion from American Courts and a parallel system of Sharia law to be instituted by which they (and ultimately: every American citizen and the entire world) are to be judged!

“Multiculturalism” is much in vogue in the U.S. But if blind allegiance to a nice-sounding phrase of inclusiveness spells the eventual doom of our national heritage, is it really the right path to follow?" "Quite simply, we need to collectively and individually ask ourselves a simple question: Is continued immigration into the U.S. by Muslims in the best interest of preserving our liberties?"
m

Tom: Anyone attempting to answer this question should first consider this directive issued by the Muslim Brotherhood in 1987 regarding immigration into the United States:

“Understanding the role of the Muslim Brother in North America” The process of settlement is a "Civilization-Jihadist Process" with all the word means. The Ikhwan* must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and "sabotaging" its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God's religion is made victorious over all other religions. It is a Muslim's destiny to perform Jihad and work wherever he is and wherever he lands until the final hour comes, and there is no escape from that destiny

Gaddafi: “We have 50 million Muslims in Europe, there are signs that Allah will grant Islam

victory in Europe — without swords, without guns, without conquests. The 50 million Muslims of Europe will turn it into a Muslim continent within a few decades."
Muslim immigration all over Europe has become a “Hot-Button” issue. France and Germany are now approaching 10% Muslim. A recent poll in Germany found that over 30% of its citizens feel the nation is overrun with foreigners. This affects international affairs. France and Germany’s subdued support and participation in Iraq and Afghanistan is due to a fear of infuriating Muslim radicals within their midst. German Chancellor Angela Merkel declared: “Attempts to build a multicultural society in Germany have Utterly failed!” This was preceded by a statement by Thilo Sarrazin, head of the German Central Bank: “….No immigrant group other than Muslims is so strongly connected to the welfare state and crime!” (this is mirrored by Detroit; the largest muslim enclave within the U.S.) Dec 28, 2012 the EU Times posted an article entitled:

"French government cuts immigrants welfare by 83%"
After decades of welcoming muslims into their country, the French have had enough. The new policy is to be instituted Mar 1 and is aimed directly at a muslim population that has become notorious for living on government subsidies, have been doing it for years, have been teaching their children to do the same and: …" do not want to be of real assistance to the country, many of whom do not want to integrate into the social

and economic life of their new home country and whose goal is existence at the expense of French taxpayers."
The article further states:

" If this is not done, the costs for the maintenance of migrants now paid by the French Treasury will continue to devastate the economy of France. It is getting increasingly more difficult for the government to provide financial assistance to migrants, given that many of them do not work or study. With a growing number of migrants, mainly from Muslim countries, France is experiencing many internal problems. They include rising unemployment and crime, increasingly greater sums of money from the state treasury spent on support of migrants and
56

In Great Britain, muslim immigrants are predominantly from Pakistan. However, in this decade it is expected that the number of Asian immigrants will increase from 1.5 to 2.5 million. Currently Immigration is the highest in the nation’s history, Leicester has recently become the first British city with a white minority and British citizens are fleeing their homeland at the highest level since before WWll. Since Labor (the socialist party) came to power in 1997, 3.9 million immigrants have displaced 1.8 million Brits. There are 41 countries with more than 10,000 British living there and another 71 countries with more than 1,000.

Brits rate immigration as society’s biggest issue – poll Posted by EU Times on Jan 15th, 2013 "The poll found that one in three people believes tension between immigrants and UK citizens is a major cause of division, while over half those questioned believe it is one of the top three causes. Over the past two decades immigration has increased to historically high levels, with 100,000 more people entering than leaving the country every year since 1998. The survey also found that three in four people think that the UK is in a housing crisis. Current Housing Minister Nick Boles is proposing that green field sites, currently protected by planning law, should be built upon in order to provide much needed housing ." "I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction."
Barack Hussein Obama, from his book "Audacity of Hope"

Webster’s Definition of Nation: "A stable, historically developed community of people with a territory, economic life, distinctive culture, and language in common" Obama has publically stated that he is a muslin. He has repeatedly given us examples to substantiate the admission. I include this one: In May, 2012 Obama gave a speech at Georgetown University. Georgetown University is a private research university in Washington, D.C. Founded in 1789, it is the oldest Jesuit and Catholic university in the United States. On the stage where Obama was to speak there are numerous symbols and references to God and Christ. The White House stage crew was directed to conceal these and did so with strategic placement of flags, and the Podium. Still, directly behind him and above was the visible name of Jesus. Obama refused to appear unless it too was obliterated. One wonders why he didn't just relocate to the Islamic Center of Washington D.C.? I personally believe that Obama was drawn to Georgetown because of a shared political ideology. Previously in this paper I have Quoted Carroll Quigley (pgs. 16, 39), a Georgetown professor of government who also attended Harvard. Now, Consider these excerpts from a recent article by Louis Michael Seidman, a professor of constitutional law at Georgetown University. Seidman's undergraduate degree is from the University of Chicago. Like Quigley and Obama, he too attended Harvard:

……"..the dream of a country ruled by “We the people” is impossibly utopian. If so, we have to give up on the claim that we are a self-governing people who can settle our disagreements through mature and tolerant debate. But before abandoning our heritage of self-government, we ought to try extricating ourselves from constitutional bondage so that we can give real freedom a chance. ……...the American system of government is broken. But almost no one blames the culprit: our insistence on obedience to the Constitution, with all its archaic, idiosyncratic and downright evil provisions."

Twelve years ago, in the worst act of terrorism ever committed on American soil, an attack by muslims killed 3,000 innocent Americans. Someone please explain to me how it came to be that today we now have a greater muslim immigration than at any time in our history. Then explain how Barack Hussein Obama a self-announced communist muslim came to occupy the White House. Someone? Anyone? Since 700 A.D., the most unabated, significant and bloodiest conflict on earth has been between islam and Christianity. Whereas Christianity acknowledges "Free Agency", and therefore a peaceful and shared existence, Islam is the only religion in the world with a stated objective of world conquest and

elimination of all other religions! This is a direct commandment from Allah and under this commandment, all infidels must convert to islam or die!*!
*Amin al-Husseini, Grand Mufti of Jerusalem and muslim leader, helped the Nazis plan the genocide of the Jews during World War II. From a letter (March 28, 1786) regarding a conversation had with the Tripoli ambassador and dealing with the Tripoli pirates:

"The Ambassador answered us that it was founded on the Laws of their prophet, that it was written in their Koran, that all nations who should not have acknowledged their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as Prisoners, and that every musselman [muslim] who should be slain in battle was sure to go to Paradise."
Thomas Jefferson. "The Papers of Thomas Jefferson." Princeton Univ. Press. pp. 9:358

It is now politically proper to distinguish between "moderate" and "radical" muslims. This is absurd and dangerous! It is like saying "moderate air" – it is nonsensical ! Reread the above! The theology of islam is violent and radical, therefore all adherents to it are by definition violent and radical or they are not muslim! After 1300 years, it is the pinnacle of absurdity to imagine that by inviting the enemy into camp, this will change! Consider this from three days ago:

Grand Ayatollah of Syria Ahmad Al Baghdadi Al Hassani Declares All Christian Women May be Raped
Daniel Greenfield December 21, 2012

In an interview December 13 on Egyptian television Al Baghdadia, the Shiite ayatollah Ahmad Al Hassani Al Baghdadi issued a fatwa against Christians in Iraq. The command of Al Baghdadis to the Christian minority in Iraq is “conversion to Islam or death. said the Grand Ayatollah:

” The women and girls of the Christians “can legitimately be regarded as Muslim women,”
That’s an indirect way of saying that any Christian woman or girl may be captured* and raped, even if she is already married. Within Islam, captive women may be raped by their captors. *Saudi Arabia outlawed slavery in 1965. The new Egyptian constitution (a product of the muslim brotherhood) deletes a specific prohibition contained in the previous constitution.

“We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. …Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”
John Adams
The “self-governance principles the founding fathers wove into our constitution are not exclusively an electoral process but extend from the personal conduct of a “religious and moral” individual. In short: “A people will get the government that they deserve!” There exists other forms that are perfectly suited to a sacrilegious and immoral people. They are typically repressive, despotic and bereft of religious freedom and liberty*. This is no accident. The right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness are embedded in our constitution because they are granted by God and therefore inalienable. A simple perusal of History will document that a sacrilegious and immoral people inevitably will be ruled by a government not restrained by any such “quaint” concepts. *The heritage Foundation just released its 2013 "Index of Economic Freedom Report". The United State has been slipping since 2009. The overall U.S. score has degraded from "Free" to "Mostly Free". We are now 10th in the world. Chile is hardly a bastion of freedom yet it ranks 7th! 1. Hong Kong 2. Singapore 3. Australia 4. New Zealand 5. Switzerland 6. Canada 7. Chile 8. Mauritius 9. Denmark 10. United States

The Democrats, Atheists, promoters of gay “rights”, pandering politicians, the ACLU and now a selfdeclared muslim president are sadly correct in their claim that: “America is not a Christian nation”. This nation is now declining in every measure* (other than the number of people on welfare rolls and masses of undocumented democrats pouring across our borders). As Adams stated, the governmental structure that he and the other founding fathers gave so much to create is now “wholly unsuited”. I would like to take a moment to address the popular delusion that this nation is run by a "Ship of Fools". To believe that the unprecedented decline of this nation (and Europe) at the hands of men educated at the most elite universities in the world is purely a consequence of unpredictable, unfortunate, and therefore uncontrollable events is the pinnacle of imbecility. The entire program is there to be seen by anyone willing to read the words of the men who have most affected history since the beginnings of the Industrial Revolution.………………………………………………………………………………….... State governance is the last electoral process truly reflecting the majority will of this nation. The outcome of this past election illustrated the divergence of Washington D.C. from the majority of this nation. It is my conclusion that the political/moral/economic chasm dividing this nation has now reached such an expanse that it can no longer be bridged. I firmly believe that the despotic, arrogant character of Barack Obama (combined with his rigid socialist ideology) will likely result in the House voting for impeachment (of those presidents who were actually tried, all were democrats). Most likely the issue will revolve on abrogation of constitutional assignment of and separation of powers. With Harry Reid and Joe Biden controlling the Senate, I have no doubts as 59

to the outcome of this. The Senate’s blatant partisan refusal to act in good faith will result in a great expansion of the current populist secession movement.

I am calling on all conservative state legislators to suggest that you begin a serious consideration of how you will respond.
The reelection of Barack Obama triggered a unique event. A citizen petition for secession was filed for every state in the Union. Those states garnering the most signatures constituted a contiguous block of America’s heartland wherein there has evolved a sense of common goal, brotherhood and shared fate (“We must, indeed, all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately” as Benjamin Franklin put it). The Texas state secession petition exceeded 120,000 signatures. Texas, were it a nation would rank 15th among world economies. Texas Governor Rick Perry has publically stated that he does not support Texas’s secession. The fact that he addressed the issue indicates that the subject within the state legislature has attained a level of significance that he could no longer ignore. Perry’s announcement is predicable for two reasons: A) the first governor to announce support, will likely burst open a floodgate within this nation and unleash a deluge of pent-up anti-Washington populist rage! B) Perry longs to be the president of 50 states. It is easy to dismiss these petitions as representing an insignificant per cent of the total population. This would be a mistake. These signatures (mine included) are of those who have grown beyond the fear of having our names flagged by NSA and DHS. There is a vast number who, wisely, have not. To get an idea of how much interest there is, I recently Googled "secession movement". There were 1,590,000 results! If each of those represented fifty supporters, we arrive at: 79,590,000 people. This is 80% of the total combined populations of Texas, Wyoming, North Dakota, Arkansas, Montana, Idaho, Utah, Kansas, Tennessee, Indiana, Arizona, Arkansas, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Kentucky, Louisiana, South Carolina, Alabama, Missouri, North Carolina and Georgia. In the history of humanity nearly all important political/social events have been the result of not the majority but a few dedicated souls* (need I point out the communist takeover of this nation?). Historians generally agree that of the thirteen colonies at the time of the American Revolution about a third of the populace supported the crown, while another third was ambivalent.

It does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set brush fires in people's minds.
Samuel Adams For 34 years Rasmussen has asked the question “Is this nation headed in the right direction?” Never once has there been a majority answer in the affirmative. Never once has the affirmative answer dropped below 20% - until the day Barack Obama took office. Some other interesting results gleaned from Rasmussin polls:

     

68% of voters believe the political class doesn’t care what most Americans think. Only 6% now support the political class Just 23% believe the Federal government today has the consent of the governed 57% of republicans believe the election was stolen by fraud. A majority say the justice system is unfair to most Americans 66% believe that the Federal government has too much power 60

  

65 % believe there is too little freedom 92% favor strict limits on government in order to protect the individual Heading into the final days of 2012, just 5 percent of voters believed Congress is doing a good or an excellent job.

The resulting social and economic collapse we are mired in is not enough: we now are subjected to a concerted attack by a perverted government on the God-given rights and liberties that have been the foundation for the unprecedented success of this nation. If this nation is ever again to become the world’s beacon of liberty, freedom and economic success, we must return to the Grace of God or we must separate from those who will not. We absolutely will not survive on this road of moral decay and political corruption now being promoted and accelerated in the highest offices of this nation. It is relevant to point out that the Constitutional clause prohibiting congressional regulation of religion was placed there to preserve the individual colonies’ right to continue the worship of God as they had come to this continent to do (not to allow a free rein for terrorists to operate under the guise of religion: koran 9-5), Those early European Protestants who were forced by conviction to separate from corrupt and morally decadent despotic governments; founded under the words of Christ the most remarkable nation ever to exist on His creation. There exist within the America that still values God’s word a startling number that now believe themselves in a similar situation. This past Democratic National Convention was shocking in the revelation of its’ true disregard for God. For those of you who did not witness it: On national television, three times by voice vote the democratic national delegates voted to exclude the word: “God” from the official wording of the party platform. It is frighteningly reminiscent of Christ’s prediction of: “Three times ye shall deny me”. This year, the invocation at Obama's second inauguration for the first time in history will not be given by a member of the clergy. Instead it is to be given by the widow of Medgar Evans. Evans a civil rights leader is noted for stating: "Our only hope is to control the vote." In further pandering to his immigrant and homosexual base, Obama named a Cuban-born homosexual as the inaugural poet as well as asking the Gay and Lesbian Band Association to march in the parade. Marx was adamant that communism could never be instituted without first eliminating private property. In his Manifesto of the Communist Party, he listed ten steps which he referred to as the ten planks of communism. The most important are:  A progressive or graduated income tax; ,,,,16th Amendment- Woodrow Wilson, Progressive Democrat, 1913  Abolition of rights of inheritance; Federal Estate tax- Woodrow Wilson (D) 1916  Centralization of credit in the hands of the state; FED –Wilson (D), 1913  Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the state; ,, TARP- Bush (R), QE I, II, III< etc., Green Energy subsidies- Obama (D)  Centralization of the means of communication and transport.[iii] ,, ////////////////////// ,,,,Fully regulated beginning with the FCC – Roosevelt, 1934 Each of these were highlighted for who still value the words of God and a constitution based It is past time that those in this nation further expansion in the Democratic Party’s 2012 electoralon campaign. Read here the the godless to create their own nation. Do 2012. them, to separate and allowCommunist Party's endorsement of Obama in not doubt it, the alternative is absolute failure and destruction of this nation. I sincerely believe in self-determination; that

"those who govern do so through the consent of the governed".

The liberal/socialist segment of American society deserves the opportunity to pursue their utopian goal without dragging the “ball and chain” of conservative economic principles and moral conviction. I see no 61

reason why a Federation cannot be agreed upon that allows a separation of economies, constitution, political ideology and moral foundation. It is in fact an opportunity from which we must not turn away, for I fear the alternative will be no less than the fate of classical Greece following the Peloponnesian War. There was a study done at the end of World War ll wherein it was asked of America’s fighting men why they were so willing to give so much. The answers took many forms but in essence it was the love they held for their families and the consequences to them if they failed. This nation was created and preserved by the blood of people who did not doubt that they had the GodGiven right to determine their own fate and possessed the moral fiber to defend that right. I pray that there remain enough of us still willing to hold forth the Declaration of Independence and do the hard work that now must be done. Tom Lahman

" The original intent of the Constitution was that it should apply to all people equally and that it should be based on the will of the voters.
Liberals have subverted both of those concepts in ways that make people more comfortable with the creeping autocracy of the government. Hate crimes, for example, are a way to allow favored minorities, usually members of the new peasant class, to receive more protection under the law. A crime against a member of a protected group can be prosecuted twice, with the perpetrator facing a harsher penalty. Similar discrimination against Blacks is illegal, as it should be, but discriminating against whites and Asians is in fact enshrined in current law. Additionally, the law has been taken out of the hands of the people's representatives via the obscene concept of judicial activism. The Supreme Court is no longer a court; instead it is a collective monarchy which feels comfortable with remaking the law as it sees fit rather than interpreting the law in light of the intentions of the elected people who passed the law. From Miranda to Roe v. Wade to the latest ruling on ObamaCare, Americans under 50 years of age have grown up seeing that the Supreme Court can turn the legal system on its head with a single opinion. Congress is nothing unless the Supreme Court approves. The Constitution is now a malleable document that the Court can reshape at will based on the latest liberal trends."

Communism
Communism is a left-wing materialistic and violently atheistic ideology created to justify the overthrow of Capitalism, replacing free market economics and democracy with a "dictatorship of the proletariat". Under Communism, the political system replaces the private ownership of the means of production with "collective ownership" of the economy, this is to be accomplished through direct "democratic" control by the workers. Twentieth century Communism was based on Karl Marx's manifesto which proposed to establishment of a "classless society." However, all Communist societies have had a class structure, notably the USSR, which was dominated by a self appointed Nomenklatura. In the belief that "people cannot change", governments under the banner of Communism have caused the death of somewhere between 40 million to 260 million human lives.[2][3][4][5][6][7] Dr. R. J. Rummel, professor emeritus of political science at the University of Hawaii, is the scholar who first coined the term democide (death by government). Dr. R. J. Rummel's mid estimate regarding the loss of life due to communism is that it caused the death of approximately 148,286,000 people between 1917 and 1987.[8] Today, communism continues to rule over at least one-fifth of the world's people.[10]
Note: Often in this paper I use the word communism as it refers to goals, agenda and methodology as

promulgated by the Communist movement and the progress made by the movement. I do not believe that Obama is a pure Marxist communist. He is supported ,however, by the Communist Party of the USA (CPU). Obama was mentored by Frank Marshall Davis, a CPU member, and educated by noted Socialist/Communist professors at every university he attended. While I believe that pure Marxism is declining there are still very active promoters, many within the Obama administration. The goal of world domination is still preeminent, but political philosophy has been revised into a new Fascist/Feudalism without the previous pretense of concern for the working class. The Guidelines and methodology are still the same. conservapedia

Socialism
The socialist government owns the banks, railroads, farmlands, factories, and stores, and is the only employer, or at least controls the regulation of production and distribution. The central goal is to destroy the "evils of capitalism" by government ownership or control of the means of production, usually with one party controlling the government on behalf of the working class. The socialist system never manages to establish this "paradise" because management for the benefit of the employees leads to featherbedding and lack of investment or economic growth, at the expense of consumers. Collective farming (operating farms like factories) sharply reduced the food supply. The most thoroughgoing efforts by Communist regimes turned into authoritarian dictatorships. The government controls all investments, production, distribution, income, and prices, as well as all organizations, schools, news media and formerly private societies. Churches and labor unions are suppressed or controlled by the government. Socialism is the antithesis of capitalism, because it opposes private ownership of capital or land, and rejects the free market in favor of central planning. It also rejects "civil society" and makes sure that all organizations are controlled by the government. Theoretically, socialist regimes can have multiple parties. In practice there is only one political party, and it controls the government. The leaders of the party choose the government officials and set all policies for the nation and for cities and localities. Opposition parties are not allowed access to the media or to meeting halls or to funding, and their leaders are often arrested as "enemies of the people." 63

As a political ideology based on the redistribution of wealth, socialism stresses the privileges of the many over the rights of the few, but in practice when socialist economic principles are forced onto a nation by a totalitarian government a new Upper Class appears which is much better off than the Lower Class.

Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy. Its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery Winston Churchill

Collectivism, Statism, Totalitarian
Political concentration of economic controls and planning in the hands of a highly centralized government often extending to government ownership of industry The political expression of statism holds that man’s life and work belong to the state and that the state may dispose of him in any way that serves the state. Ayn Rand:

"A statist system—whether of a communist, fascist, Nazi, socialist or“welfare”type—is based on the . . . government’s unlimited power, which means: on the rule of brute force. The differences among statist systems are only a matter of time and degree; the principle is the same. Under statism, the government is not a policeman, but a legalized criminal that holds the power to use physical force in any manner and for any purpose it pleases against legally disarmed, defenseless victims."
Nothing can ever justify so monstrously evil a theory. Nothing can justify the horror, the brutality, the plunder, the destruction, the starvation, the slave-labor camps, the torture chambers, the wholesale slaughter of statist dictatorships"
Ayn Rand

The following is derived from an article by Daisy Luther posted in the Activist Post

Serfdom and the Feudal System
The period of European history from the 5th to the 15th century was known as the Middle Ages. It is estimated that during this era just over 90% of the population of were serfs. Most were basically slaves. They were provided with a small shelter on an inferior piece of land and the “protection” of the noble in charge of that area. In return, they worked for the estate, farming the land with no recompense, paying taxes and having no control over their own lives. Each year, the peasant was required to give the best part of his harvest to the lord of the manor. A peasant did not own the land on which he lived and was therefore obligated to live where he was told, grow what he was told, and farm in the manner in which he was told.,A peasant was not allowed to have real, effective weapons – those were reserved for the armies of the nobility. Congressman Ron Paul:

Corporatism
A system where businesses are nominally in private hands, but are in fact controlled by the government. In a corporatist state, government officials often act in collusion with their favored business interests to design polices that give those interests a monopoly position, to the detriment of both competitors and consumers.

Robber Baron
Businessmen who use what are considered to be exploitative practices to amass their wealth. These practices included exerting control over national resources, accruing high levels of government influence, paying extremely low wages, quashing competition by acquiring competitors in order to create monopolies and eventually raise prices. The term combines the sense of criminal ("robber") and illegitimate aristocracy ("baron"). Investopedia

Capitalism
An economic system based on a free market, open competition, profit motive and private ownership of the means of production. Capitalism encourages private investment and business, compared to a government-controlled economy. Investors in these private companies (i.e. shareholders) also own the firms and are known as capitalists. In such a system, individuals and firms have the right to own and use wealth to earn income and to sell and purchase labor for wages with little or no government control. The function of regulating the economy is then achieved mainly through the operation of market forces where prices and profit dictate where and how resources are used and allocated. conservapedia

Fascism
A totalitarian economic and political ideology that arose in early twentieth-century Europe and came to dominate the social and political systems of Italy under Benito Mussolini and Germany under Adolf Hitler. Fascism was primarily statist in nature, relying on big government solutions and "crony capitalism", and openly hostile towards conventional religion. Fascism was influential in Portugal as well, and had followers in most European countries and in Argentina. The last regime that had some fascist elements, that of Francisco Franco in Spain, came to an end in 1975. Fascists believe that all actions should be done for the good of the state. Fascism ignores or rejects Christianity, though some fascist leaders such as Franco have exploited organized religion for political gain. This definition extends to economic policy as well, with government and business made to work together for this end. This is called "corporatism." Characteristics of fascism include a belief that the state is more important than the individual; a leaning towards authoritarian government and violence; preference for centralized economic planning; an emphasis on nationalism and national traditions; militarism; information control and censorship; media propagation of the Great Leader which demonizes and trivializes his critics; and a rejection of both free enterprise and Socialism in favor of corporatist economic policies. Fascist regimes have pushed their agendas by concentrating on a "scapegoat"--typically a group that is deemed to be foreign in origin or beliefs or both. Examples include the vehement Nazi attack on the Jews and Gypsies and the campaigns waged by several fascist regimes against Freemasonry. The characteristics of fascism also include rampant cronyism and corruption, as well as rigged elections and a general disdain for human rights.[2] Investopedia

Plutocracy
A government controlled exclusively by the wealthy either directly or indirectly. Regulatory focus is narrow and concentrated on the goals of the wealthy, creating income and asset-based inequality. 65

Investopedia

Free Enterprise
An economic system where few restrictions are placed on business activities and ownership. In this system, governments generally have minimal ownership of enterprises in the market place. This system aims for limited restrictions on trade and minimal government intervention. The free enterprise movement started in the 1700s, when many individuals were restricted from starting and owning their own business without the permission of the government. The movement looked to reduce ownership and other related restrictions, such as how one should operate their business and who they were allowed to trade with. Investopedia

Free Market
A market economy based on supply and demand with little or no government control. A completely free market is an idealized form of a market economy where buyers and sellers are allowed to freely buy/sell/trade based on a mutual agreement on price without state intervention in the form of taxes, subsidies or regulation. In reality there will always be government intervention that restrict new competitors from entering the market.//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// conservapedia

Liberal

Someone who favors censorship of Christianity as well as increased government spending, power, and control, as in ObamaCare. Increasingly, liberals side with the homosexual agenda, including supporting homosexual "marriage". Many liberals favor a welfare state where people receive endless entitlements without working. Liberals are often anti-Christian, or otherwise disagree with moral or social principles A held by many American Christians. The liberal ideology has worsened over the years and degenerated into economically unsound views and intolerant ideology. Some liberals simply support, in knee-jerk fashion, the opposite of conservative principles without having any meaningful values of their own.////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// Ayn Rand: The goal of the “liberals”—as it emerges from the record of the past decades—is to smuggle this country into welfare statism by means of single, concrete, specific measures, enlarging the power of the government a step at a time, never permitting these steps to be summed up into principles, never permitting their direction to be identified or the basic issue to be named. Thus statism is to come, not by vote or by violence, but by slow rot—by a long process of evasion and epistemological corruption, leading to a fait accompli. (The goal of the “conservatives” is only to retard this process.) Conservapedia

Conservative
A conservative is someone who rises above his personal self-interest and promotes moral and economic values beneficial to all. A conservative is willing to learn and advocate the insights of economics and the logic of the Bible for the benefit of all. More formally, a conservative typically adheres to principles of personal responsibility, moral values, and limited government, agreeing with George Washington's Farewell Address that religion and morality are indispensable supports" to political prosperity.[1][2] Former President Ronald Reagan said, "The basis of conservatism is a desire for less government interference or less centralized authority or more individual freedom."[3] 66

ivilization is the product of accumulated knowledge. When recorded it is known as "His Story" (history). This thread of human experience is like a continually updated time capsule, a literary umbilical cord through which travels the wisdom of ages past. If we will listen we can learn of the triumphs and failures of others who have traveled this road before us and apply that knowledge in improving our own situation. Many times I am frustrated by my inability to assemble words in a manner that will express something I am convinced is of importance yet can barely grasp the meaning of. For that reason I have over my life collected the words of people far more eloquent and knowledgeable than I am (I don't have to look hard). Contemplating the Bible in full form is a daunting undertaking. However, its entirety is contained within ten short commandments – the rest, it might be said, is all commentary. And so I have found most of man's literary achievements can be equally condensed. The following section is comprised Quotes from my personal files. The first is especially relevant, for without it, it is doubtful that you and I would have arrived at the same dance nor spied one another across the room. I am continually humbled by the great minds who have left us a legacy of history; a box of tools that can we can use to renew, replace, or repair this vehicle that has carried humanity across the ages. Along with those we revere are those words that rise from the abyss and entice us to turn down some dark and dangerous side road fraught with destruction and human tragedy. That we know not to follow that siren's call is because these words too are recorded. Good and bad, they are all in our tool box. The fact that the words of Aeschylus speak to us with as much authority as Voltaire and Will Rodgers tells us that Basic human character has changed little. The dance goes on. All that we manage is to rearrange the steps when a different band takes the stage.

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness."

"Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide John Adams "Look back over the past, with its changing empires that rise and fall, and you can foresee the future, too." Marcus Aurelius "History teaches us that the capacity of things to get worse is limitless. Roman history suggests that the short, happy life of the American republic may be coming to its end... [the US will probably] maintain a facade of constitutional government and drift along until financial bankruptcy overtakes it. Of course, bankruptcy will not mean the literal end of the United States any more than it did for Germany in 1923, China in 1948, or Argentina in 2002-03. It might, in fact, open the way for an unexpected restoration of the American system, or for military rule or simply for some development we cannot yet imagine. Certainly, such a bankruptcy would mean a drastic lowering of our standard of living, a loss of control over international affairs, a process of adjusting to the rise of other powers, including China and India..."/ Chalmers Johnson "When God desires to destroy a thing, he entrusts its destruction to the thing itself. Every bad institution of this world ends by suicide." Victor Hugo (1802-1885)" "A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world's greatest civilizations has been 200."/ … Attributed to Alexander Fraser Tytler, Lord Woodhouselee.

From Batr.Org:

Liberty and Secession
If there is any person left in this country that understands the significance of the American Revolution, they must admit our noble experiment has failed. The rational atheist believes that belief in the supernatural requires supernatural proof. They consider their talent to be so refined that only empirical evidence that meets the scrutiny of their rational notion of epistemological, is acceptable as proof. Since such hubris can never be satisfied, they conclude - God certainly cannot exist, because I judge it so . . . They assert this convoluted process as rational. The believer on the other hand accepts that his awareness into the presence of God is a belief. Faith is not based upon proof and evidence. Reason serves only as the means to accept that faith is a belief that does not rest on logical proof or material evidence. Belief in an originator can never provide certainty for the skeptic. But the rational atheist boldly pronounces that god in not just dead, he never existed. They offer no more proof for such a judgment, than the believer. At the very least, consistency in logic would require that the only true sound rational conclusion is that of the agnostic. So what does this have to do with pluralism and secession? Acceptance of intrinsic natural rights that are endowed from a creator are quite different from those rights that objectivism would acknowledge. If man is the measure of all things, arbitrary becomes optional or leads to discretionary. Under atheistic Marxism the equity claim of judicial review of a right, is consistent with varied application of that 'so called' right. If a right is not absolute, it will always be determined to be arbitrary. Pluralism advocates celebrate the value of diversity as justification to accept diametrically opposing cosmologies, as equal. It is irrational to equate these two views as candidates for coexistence. The bad ideology will obliterate the good order. Why? Because recognition in the Liberty of the atheist, requires the persecution of the believer. There is no common ground. The value culture will dissolve to the lowest marginal standard. Since Liberty is the central objective and the highest achievement for human interaction within society, how can the dignity of the atheist and the believer be protected? On the surface this question seems an oxymoron, since their is no unequivocal source for human rights from the atheist camp. But we as believers, accept the dignity of all men. Our responsibility is to respect others, even those who's very convictions seek to abolish our values and freedoms to profess our faith. Defending the Liberty of the atheist is rational, if it can be achieved without the elimination of our way of life and principles of faith.

The secular humanist religiously denies that America was founded upon the fundamental principle that each person is free to profess their belief in God. All too many confuse that such a faith in a creator, is the same as the practice of any religion. Religion and belief are very different concepts. Religions are congregations of people who express the practice of their particular rituals of worship. Denominational sects are not part of this argument. The sorry record of hypocrites posing as religious institutions need not be illustrated. Their kind of pluralism has more to do with rules made by men in clerical garb than submission to divine revelation. Our history is really the tale of separate regions where similar peoples created and settled communities to be with their own kind. Governments evolved under their own unique cultures while under the protection and rule of the British Crown. These regions emerged as individual states that professed their sovereignty as independent nations with customs and laws indigenous to their inhabitants. Citizens maintained their allegiance to their particular state. The 1776 Revolution was a challenge against the arbitrary rules of men. The monarch would no longer be king. Liberty would be sought for every man, with only an opportunity guaranteed, to pursue its quest. The Articles of Confederation were a loose union of separate independent governments, each reflecting varied societies and based upon the consent of the governed. And each state was founded upon the principles of faith in a creator. It is time to admit that the country where we all now reside, is but a sham of the societies that once championed individual Liberty. If the pluralism that was once described as the 'great melting pot', ever existed. it is now; long dead. What possible sensible reason can be offered for forcible intermingling of peoples so varied and resistant in accepting and adapting to traditional values and principles of heritage? Face the facts - the United States is not united nor should it be. Legitimacy of a central government has long been forfeited. So why not let my people go? Your Liberty can be pursued in harmony with your own kind, why not separate? Concede and admit the failure of pluralism. Inextricably the non believer only has the State to believe in, with all its glory in their arrogance of the arbitrary. Secession is the moral course. Yes, you will reply that the government will never allow such a wild proposal. Surely you would be correct, the nature of the federal system is to control people, and would not give up the power to dominate citizens. But that evaluation does not dispel the validity of the ethical case. So much for the prospect of Liberty in a free society. If individual Liberty is to be achieved for the greatest number of people, each person needs to live under a political system that earns their consent. We are all prisoners in a cesspool of authoritarianism. Evil men are elected because amoral voters are satisfied with bribes from their masters. Equity allows for this model to flourish. Atheism justifies its use. And coercive power destroys Liberty, for all parties. It is time to break this corrupt cycle, separate; so we can all live our lives as our conscience requires.

Any

people anywhere, being inclined and having the power, have the right to rise up and shake off the existing government, and form a new one that suits them,better.
k

A right which we hope and believe is to liberate the world. Nor is this right confined to cases in which the whole people of an existing government may choose to exercise it. Any portion of such people, that can, may revolutionize, and make their own of so much of the territory as they inhabit.////////////////////
