Can There be Another Major General Smedley Butler?

Prior to the disclosures about “Economic Hit Men” by John Perkins, we had the attempted coup by 24 wealthy businessmen and financiers to overthrow the administration of President Franklin D. Roosevelt and replace it with a fascist government. If not for the good conscience of Major General Smedley D. Butler, who was …

NSA, Patriot Act, Bail-in’s, Govt Lies, & Poor Economy – It’s All Related!

A report was delivered to the President this week by a group of outside advisors regarding the NSA’s unconstitutional data collection techniques. Among many of the complaints cited in the report, the most unreported consequence of the NSA’s surveillance is the impact on commerce, and therefore capital flows and growth. The report …

Media Perpetuates the Myth that Fed is Part of Govt

Open Letter to the Media: In light of all the recent lies being told by government officials (i.e. Obamacare, Benghazi, NSA, manipulation of the unemployment rate prior to 2012 election, etc, etc, etc.); I thought it would be appropriate to ask the question about the biggest lie of all: Why do …

The Choice is Simple: Defy History and Act Proactively

As Matt Taibbi accurately points out again, this time with currency manipulation, the non-prosecution of bank fraud will ultimately destroy the banks and western govt’s. The cascade of cost-of-doing-business penalties will give way to derivative defaults that ultimately blow up the banks. Like the Jews under Nazi Germany, Main Street outnumbers the fraudsters on …

Open Letter to Congress

Dear Congressmen and Congresswomen; The deceit and self-centered actions by those in government are truly a disgrace that exposes US hypocrisy for the entire world to see. Debt-related issues exist throughout the developed world. For example, look what Barosso and the European Commission just did in a secret session! They need 2.7 billion euros, …

Once Again: The Default Canard

Boehner and the other establishment Republicans have capitulated on the debt ceiling. They believe that caving to the propaganda in the media and from the Democratics will give them a better chance in the 2014 elections. These Country Club Republicans forgot how they regained their power in 2010. Instead of respecting the Tea …

Default False Flag

In typical fashion, our illustrious political leaders cannot simply tell us the truth about anything. Instead they rely on false flags and unplanned crisis to force through agenda’s that could never pass on their own merits. This time the fear of not raising the debt ceiling is being used to sell their selfish motives. The President …

Govt Will Be Coming For Your Retirement Accounts!

The U.S. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) is so “concerned” about Baby Boomers falling prey to financial scams, they will be looking to assume responsibility of your retirement under the “Office for Older Americans” (no joke, this the actual name). The facade of “concern” will be used to take control of …

Hersh: Journalists, do Something about Your Lies!

In a recent article published in The Guardian about the state of journalism, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Seymour Hersh says, “The republic’s in trouble, we lie about everything, lying has become the staple.”  One example cited was the Navy Seal raid that supposedly resulted in the death of Osama Bin Laden. Hersh remarked, “Nothing’s …

Debt & The Biggest Wealth Transfer in History

Stanley Druckenmiller appeared on CNBC this week. The meat of his comments start at the 12:35 mark. Although, his entire segment, which begins at the 8:03 mark, is good – especially when he rhetorically asks, “who owns assets”, and at the 15:00 mark when he explains what the Feds policies are all about: “the …
