No Need For Guns In America



Erik Rush
^ picture link ^

For those of you who know me, you can pick your jaw up off the floor (after reading the title) and move on. There is a pseudo-discussion taking place all over America about gun ownership which consists of the actual “need” for firearms in citizens’ hands and limits that should be placed on American gun owners. As unlikely as it might seem, this is pure distraction.

In an earlier life – the one the press refuses to report – Obama summarily declared that he believed Americans should not own guns. That declaration seems to have been forgotten by some who are attributing to Mr. Obama scruples, morals, and decency that he does not possess – not to mention his demonstrated disregard for the Constitution of the United States in general. Reasonableness is what the American public generally displays and expects in return.

I’m sorry to burst the bubble here, but that is not what is happening on the Obama side of that ledger. Lies, obfuscation, the sweet smile, the demonization or marginalization of those who uphold the Second Amendment, assurances of faithfulness to the Constitution and a love for the children are merely diversionary precursors to his totalitarian end game. All are bogus, all staging and melodrama for the cameras.

Tyranny is coming in America, despite the fact that more than half of her citizens are too deluded, arrogant, or stupid to see it. If Obama’s policy processes continue unchecked, America will experience cataclysmic civil unrest; again, unfathomable to most Americans, this is precisely what Obama intends.

The words of this President are so rife with fraud and deceit that good people simply cannot believe anyone appearing so benevolent could possibly be so bad. At this juncture I would ask the question, Do you believe that the President really wants to have an open and honest discussion with the American people about the “problem” of violence and the misuse of guns in crime?

Has he ever followed through on conducting an open and honest discussion with the American people about anything? So we have our answer.

A second question might be this: Do you believe that the President will alter his long-standing belief that no American should own a gun after this discussion is over? The third and final question, assuming the answers to the first two questions are “no,” is Might the training of American military and police in guerilla warfare techniques coupled with manuals in the “How to” of gun confiscation be an indicator of where this “discussion” is really going?

If the answer to that one is “yes,” then have Americans just been convinced into thinking that the President is “open” to changing his thinking, and is “transparent” enough not to have a hidden agenda?

Obama, with the eager cooperation of the American press and the anti-gun lobby, are creating the perception of Second Amendment proponents as manifestly evil. Not misguided, not wrong – but evil. As such, he will set the stage for all “reasonable” Americans to support the wholesale dismantling of the Second Amendment, and if this means wholesale firearms confiscation and the bloodshed to which this will no doubt give rise, so much the better. This will give him legitimacy in his move of declaring martial law – in fact, he will have “no choice,” so it will appear.

This will be, as we’ve seen in so many other nations, the move across the threshold into totalitarian rule. We must never forget that this is a person who grew up studying and admiring Mao, Lenin, Stalin, and Castro – men who murdered hundreds of millions in their ascent to total dominion over their respective nations. Just this week, it was reported that a former senior military staffer revealed Obama’s new litmus test for top military brass: Can they give the order to fire on American citizens?

P.T. Barnum (of Barnum and Bailey Circus fame) was a practiced con artist. He taught his people well in the art of distraction; while folks were watching the right hand, the left hand was pulling the trick off right under the nose of the audience. Amazed, they would declare in wonder, “How did they do that?” The answer, of course, was that it happened right under their noses, while they were watching, and they had just been misdirected. Those who have researched the President’s multitudinous executive orders alone know that the Obama administration has mastered this technique.

There is no real discussion in America about gun ownership in America at any level that matters; Obama will confiscate them all – or at least he will attempt to do so. The question is: Will America see how it is being tricked before it is too late?

Erik Rush is a New York-born columnist, author and speaker who writes sociopolitical commentary for numerous online and print publications. In February of 2007, Erik was the first to break the story of President (then Senator) Barack Obama’s ties to militant Chicago preacher Rev. Jeremiah Wright on a national level, which ignited a media firestorm that smolders to this day. His latest book, “Negrophilia: From Slave Block to Pedestal ~ America’s Racial Obsession,” examines the racist policies by which the political left keeps black Americans in thralldom, white Americans guilt-ridden and yielding, and maintains the fallacy that America remains an institutionally racist nation.

Obama will tighten the screws somewhat, currently it looks like Repubs will block anything huge, I hope.  BTW I think it's unfair that former felons aren't allowed to own guns:  many live in high crime areas & could use guns for legit self-defense.  & if they're going to do armed robbery anyway they'll hardly be stopped by the law against them owning guns.  Same goes for "mentally ill" I suppose.  Jew Big-Psych has claimed half the population is mentally ill, encouraged folks to see drugging "help"--& now they want them to be put on a black list.

Bitter Harvest – Why Republicans And Democrats ARE The Same


^^ picture link ^^

There is much verbosity about what is wrong with America, how Washington D.C. is paralyzed and that Republicans and Democrats are on complete opposite ends of the ideological spectrum.  Each side claims the other is bad for America and uses every available means, primarily aimed at people’s emotions, to demonize the opposite party.  And it’s true that the Unites States of America is facing a multitude of serious challenges, and Washington, D.C. is frozen in a quagmire of contentious and unpatriotic behavior.  However, based on results, the Republicans and Democrats are the same.

Their puppet masters are the oligarchy of financial titans that actually rule the world and that pesky U.S. Constitution has kept getting in the way for a fast track of much bigger plans.  However, you can thank the Republican and Democratic politicos, over the last one hundred years, for systematically dismantling the Constitution decade by decade.  And between the Bushes, Bill Clinton and Barack Hussein Obama, with the support of Congress and the Supreme Court, the acceleration of abridging and stealing away your rights and Constitutional freedoms has been moving at internet speed.

However, give the American people some credit.  Believing the most convincing political promises, at every election cycle, citizens keep trying, year after year, to vote out the “bad guys” to get the “good guys” in office.  Then, like a rotten soap opera, the “good guys” turn “bad” (some claim the lobbyists and money men got to them) and the “bad guys” have to be voted out again.  Does the recycling, rebranding and repetition sound too familiar?

And what about blame?  All the politicos spread blame around like apple butter smeared on a hog’s behind.   At first it seems like a sweet deal, but in the end it all stinks to high heaven.  If all the energy on finger pointing and blame were used for getting positive results for the American people, wouldn’t real progress be the result?  Yet, Americans keep coming to the trough, to lap up the syrupy slogans like: “We Can Do Better” (Kennedy) “Are You Better Off Than You Were Four Years Ago?” (Reagan) “A Safer World and a More Hopeful America” (G.W. Bush), “A Stronger America” (Kerry), “Yes, We Can”, “Change We Can Believe In”, “Forward” (Obama), and “Believe in America” (Romney).  Do the slogans sound similar?  Who would argue with any of them?  Each slogan could be switched to the opposite party and most people wouldn’t know the difference.  Yes, Virginia, in human nature hope does spring eternal, just as there is a Santa Claus in Washington, D.C.  The politicos have the hook set in the jaws of America’s humanity and the citizens are scaled, gutted, and cooked.  Like slowly boiling frogs, the prey doesn’t know its goose is cooked, before it’s dead and served for dinner.

And do you think you could get either side to NOT make a political promise about TAXES?  How politically sacrilegious would that be?  If you remember one thing, remember this:  ALL TAXATION IS A CONFISCATION OF WEALTH.  The rhetoric on who should be taxed, how often and by how much is pure window dressing for dividing the populace and raising taxes even more.  (In case you’ve forgotten there is a growing American national debt of 16 Trillion dollars with unfunded liabilities in the tens of Trillions of dollars.)  The unending political rhetoric of raising and lowering taxes is like a thousand points of light, aimed like laser beams on the backside of American wallets, in a world of cartel juicing economics.

Now the great thing about Americans is that they are a highly resilient and tolerant citizenry, who are willing to give to people, nations and humanitarian causes around the globe.  So, the politicians of both parties know Americans have historically rationalized, “What’s wrong with just a little more tax to help with______ ?” (fill in the blank).  The problem is that a lot of people, in very high places, have long ago figured out that they can not only take major advantage of the inherent good nature and charity of Americans, including the rich, middle class and poor, with the exotic and not so exotic forms of tax collection, but can spend others people’s money, to infinity, without conscious.  If it were not so, such incredibly insane amounts of money would not be spent on elections, because it is the safest bet in Washington, D.C. that political donations will bring in a guaranteed rate of return.  That’s what keeps the thousands of D.C. lobbyists in business and citizens out of the game.  The politicians just keep finding more frogs to throw in the pot and turn up the flame.

Taxation and spending in the United States have become legalized criminality, by the perpetual promise maker’s who keep telling the people America’s best days are ahead.  The repeated promises seem so alien, especially when nothing substantial ever actually happens, but American’s keep telling themselves, “I want to believe,” like the X-Files movie of the same name, while the Jon Corzine’s of the world laugh all the way to the bank.  They are members of the same powerful club, which is why so many go unpunished and unscathed.

Both Republicans and Democrats understand American’s basic needs and the left brain/right brain psychology of individual pet issues.  A war is truly on for your mind and the superficially competing ideologies, while cloaked in red or blue, is the same wolf in sheep’s clothing.  The wolf’s heart is money and the Republican/Democrat RESULT is apparent, by nearly any statistic you may wish to research, which is the eventual bankrupting of the country.  True American patriots, for the service of their constituents and country would: easily pass and adhere to budgets, follow the rule of law without exceptions for themselves, take the narrow Constitutional route on all matters including  money and banking and cease entering into endless wars and start respecting the Bill of Rights of America’s citizens.  To do so would embrace a philosophy of freedom, which is the fundamental intent of the Republic’s founding.

With a philosophy of liberty and freedom, the word United as in the United States of America would actually mean what it is intended to mean.  The politics of divisiveness would die.  Instead, the purpose of the present two party system is to split citizens into polarized camps, thereby rendering ineffective any meaningful challenge to the status quo.  Vote for the Democrats and you get the promise for endearing social programs, a redistribution of wealth with a dose of healthy government largesse.  Vote for the Republicans and you have the promise of foreign adventurism (militarism), a police state based on seemingly never ending threats to your security, and perpetual handouts to defense contractors in the military industrial complex.  Like the nightly news that beckons to the latest Hollywood gossip, the social gossip of entitlements versus safety and defense becomes the Democratic and Republican lexicon.

Dare any legal American citizen propose to reduce both social entitlements and war spending,  then they are treated as if they are lepers from planet Mars.  (Ironically, prior to 1900 both political parties had a “hard money” policy in their official platforms).  Did something change?  Yes, it did.  Both political parties abandoned a “hard money” policy in favor of the current Ponzi scheme, that is now being perpetrated on innocent civilians and played out at the expense of a nation.  No wonder honest people keep asking, “What has happened to our country?”  As with all things politically evil, all you have to do is follow the money.  And the money is leading the nation down one and only one path – Financial Armageddon.

So whether you choose an Obama/Biden or a Romney/Ryan, the overriding result will be the same ticket.  The only difference will be on how you eventually get to your destination.  The Cadillacs and Fords will all be pointed down the same road.  Remember, if your public servants, both Democrat and Republican, were serving you instead of themselves and their special interests, then they would follow the Constitution, the rule of law and the will of the people.  Just do the math.

In the endgame, regardless of the posturing rhetoric,  it is all about the money.  Their words and actions (Republican and Democrat) don’t add up, especially when measured by the Declaration of Independence and the Constitutional yardstick of liberty and freedom.  The coming harvest will be a bitter one, until the wheat is finally separated from the chafe.

I agree w/you on Obama being the obedient puppet & that article is certainly correct that on big issues, ie money, "both parties" are the same.  I used to think gun control would gradually but consistently ratchet upward but wow, after Aurora/Sandy Hook etc it doesn't seem like they're going to do any big moves.  Now I'm thinking that PTB are willing to let the issue ride somewhat.  Pro-2nd Amendment folks say guns are a tool to fight tyranny but with hundreds of cities having SWAT teams, tanks, machine guns etc perhaps PTB really don't fear the "armed citizenry" that much.  Letting folks keep their guns gives many the idea that they still have some "freedom".

Bloomberg Announces $12 Million In Gun Control Ads



By LD Jackson

It’s been an eventful week on the gun control front. I’m sure Senator Diane Feinstein isn’t happy with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, with his announcement that the assault weapons ban would be stripped from the gun control bill that is headed to the floor of the Senate. That isn’t to say there are not other things to be concerned about in the fight over gun control, but the assault weapons ban will be standing on its own merit, according to Senator Reid. And then, we have New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg. He seems determined to implement gun control (and other kinds of control, but that’s another story), no matter how much it costs.

There is only one way we are going to lose the battle over gun control and that is if public opinion sways in the wrong direction. That is what Mayor Bloomberg and Mayors Against Illegal Guns is trying to do with the $12 million in ads that are being purchased. They are trying to move public opinion and with that move, force Senators who are on the fence about comprehensive background checks into changing their votes.

    (Huffington Post) New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg plans to spend $12 million on a television ad campaign meant to pressure senators into backing gun control efforts, including comprehensive background checks.

    The national campaign from Mayors Against Illegal Guns will target states whose senators are on the fence, according to the New York Post.

    Bloomberg announced the ad buy Saturday — just days after Senate Democrats touted stronger background checks while acknowledging insufficient support to restore a ban on assault-style weapons to federal gun control legislation.

    “These ads bring the voices of Americans — who overwhelmingly support comprehensive and enforceable background checks — into the discussion to move senators to immediately take action to prevent gun violence,” Bloomberg said in a statement issued by the group he co-founded in 2006.

The Fox News article goes on to describe two of the ads that will be playing in select states. Both of them feature men who support the 2nd Amendment, or so they say, but are quick to say that our rights come with certain responsibilities. The responsibility they specifically mention are comprehensive background checks. What is implied, but not stated, is that those comprehensive background checks are aimed at the purchases you and I, American citizens who are legally allowed to own and carry a gun, via the 2nd Amendment, would conduct. In other words, we would undergo a background check when we purchase a gun.

While that sounds innocent enough, stop and ask yourself this question. Let’s say we submit to a background check and fulfill our responsibility as an American citizen. Who will be doing the background checks on the criminals who have no qualms about not following the law in the first place? Isn’t that why they are called criminals? Should law-abiding American citizens be subjected to something that will do nothing to control what the very name of Mayor Bloomberg’s group says it is against? Remember, they call themselves Mayors Against Illegal Guns. Does that mean they want to go after illegal guns and the criminals who use them? Or does it mean Bloomberg is more interested in controlling the guns you and I are allowed to own?

The ads are scheduled to run in Arkansas, Arizona, Georgia, Indiana, Iowa, Louisiana, Maine, New Hampshire, Nevada, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio and Pennsylvania. These are the states Bloomberg believes are divided on gun control and are vulnerable to the message the ads are trying to send. If you live on one of these states, I would urge you to call your Senators and let them know exactly where you stand on requiring you to undergo a background check to purchase a gun, when that background check will do nothing to prevent illegal guns from reaching the criminals. It’s a simple matter, really. Ask them whose side they are on.

Whether we, the people like it or not, THEY have the power to do so.

Easy way for Mayor Bloomberg to quickly restore his image with the media after getting mud in his face from the Big Gulp fiasco.  Even liberals were irritated at the nanny state overreach.  Gun control, OTOH, is always an easy sell.

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg speaks in favor of stronger gun control. Bloomberg is co-chair of Mayors Against Gun Violence. (Neat how they always get the top jobs, just like they do here!)

A conservative is a liberal who got mugged.
A liberal is a conservative who got a speeding ticket.

Bloomie has been pushing gun control for a long time, way before his war on soft drinks.  I don't think gun control is an easy sell since most Americans are solidly against it.  OTOH his ad campaign can help give the illusion of public support for whatever anti-gun measures NYC etc political machines force on people.  Actually I think Bloomberg's ad campaign is counter-productive (in their terms) since it doesn't look good for a rich politician to buy legislation.

Speaking of tyranny, lets just go back to 2001, here we go:

"Sovietization" of U.S. Foreign Policy --  the Russian View

http://www.againstbombing.com/sovietization.htm

Nezavisimaya Gazeta (courtesy of United Press International)

THE USA OR THE USSR?

America in the Soviet "expansion space" ~ Prominent political consultant on relations between Russia and America
Author: Gleb Pavlovsky (Key advisor to President Putin of Russia)

[from WPS Monitoring Agency, www.wps.ru/e_index.html]

THE UNITED STATES IS STARTING TO USE THE COLD WAR TECHNIQUES OF THE SOVIET UNION.
AN AMERICAN SOVIET UNION IN ITS WORST FORM IS BEING CONSTRUCTED, AS GLOBAL AND
IRRESPONSIBLE AS ITS COMMUNIST PROGENITOR.



     If America's activity were to be viewed as a message, it is only in Russia that such messages are received with such ambivalence. We perceive them as controversial and unsystematic. Now they are offensive, and now they are ideological. Later they are vaguely threatening or appear to be meant for the old enemy that was the Soviet Union even though nominally directed at Russia.

     There is a certain trend in US foreign policy that has been of interest for me for quite a long time now. By Russians, it is perceived as sovietization of the American global activity. First indicated in how air strikes against Baghdad were covered in 1998, it moved into high gear during the Kosovo intervention in 1999. Sovietization of the foreign policy of the United States is more instrumental than deliberate. This un-deliberate quotation from the ideas of the late Soviet Politburo is ascribed to the fact that precisely the Soviet Union and not the United States that first
initiated an ideo-cratic globalization.

     In other words, an American Soviet Union in its worst form is being constructed, as global and irresponsible as its communist progenitor.

     The United States is inheriting Soviet globalism now. Russia is refusing to inherit it. Instead, it is revising its own national legacy. Russia itself quit the Soviet Union, without support from the United States (and actually despite resistance put up by Bush the elder) Russia recognized itself as a democratic state based on the rule of law, a European state. This is a fact. It means that Russia is not the Soviet Union. It is because of this that it refuses to discuss policies based on "the necessity to protect the world from restoration of the Soviet empire."

     The United States missed the restoration of Russia - national, popular, or integrated. It missed it for the same reason the Politburo had missed unification of Europe.

     It is clear nowadays that Russia will never be ruled from beyond, particularly by hints from the United States. This factor alone changes the global situation. The model is coming apart as soon as it ceased to be total. It stumbles over what Stalin's globalism stumbled over in Yugoslavia, and late Brezhnev's globalism in the Soviet Union itself, in Czechoslovakia, and Afghanistan - over indestructibility of dissenter in any global balance. It turns out that reaction of the American greatness in this case does not differ from the reaction of Soviet impeccability - the regime has to be changed, the bastards have to be kicked out from the corridors of power no matter what the cost.

     Can we be sure America, confused as it is by its "national interests" and "global responsibility" which it perceives from the purely ideological standpoint, will not put Russia on the list of rogue states one fine day? It will do us world of good to remember that the United States shifts foreign countries from the category of rogue states into that of partners and back for purely political reasons. It was so with the armament of Iraq, it was so with resisting Soviet policy in Afghanistan. (This was America's response, all the more irresponsible a policy which ended in the long run in the end of Afghani statehood.) We know it for what it is. It is creating a problem so as to heroically overcome it afterwards.

     It is not a joke at all, however, when a rogue element of yesterday is instantly made a partner and America sics it on you. It was so with Kosovo Albanians. It is so with the American hypocritical policy with regard to Palestinians. Moreover, it is not as thought we were not witnessing something like that in the Caucasus and Central
Asia.

     When some national structure formulates its opinion in the form of international laws and acts on the international arena, deterioration of relations with it may mean that the country in question will be put on the list of rogue states. The UN will only play along. What guarantees can America offer to the world with regard to its own reliability? No guarantees. What does it mean for Russia? It means we should not fear a military strike from the United States.
On the other hand, attempts of "technical assistance" we have never asked for are quite probable. What we should be wary of is a crisis of how America understands Russia which may result in a whole bunch of new complexes and suspicions.

     There is a tendency in this country to see Washington's cunning plots in everything. This is a relic of the Cold War, an optimistic relic. It will be much more dangerous if we start seeing stupidity instead of plots. Because consequences of stupidity are even more serious.

     An American patriot was told by Thomas Mann the following: rely on American common sense in a dire hour. Mann replied that dire hour was precisely the time of hesitations and doubts. Strategic immaturity of Washington is a fact.

    Can Russia rely on a country whose administration always misunderstands Moscow, builds its policy on this erroneous basis, and later apologizes for it?

     There is no such a thing as a global American plot. There is the amazing American inability to understand something. But this is not its domestic policy. The US is not evil. It just dimly perceives the world the way it is accustomed to doing. Like a student learning a poem by heart, word by word, with his or her eyes closed for better
concentration. This world ought to be comfortable for a certain way of perception and understanding, and therefore for the structure of investment with minimal risks at this level of perception and understanding.

     The US is not an enemy of regimes that are not democratic. It is an enemy of the regimes it does not understand, the regimes whose parameters it does not control, and does not therefore knows what to do about them in conflicts. The globally-minded United States is an enemy of overly-independent regimes. Stalin's tactic in such cases called for preventive conflicts. These conflicts forced the potential threat to materialize and enforced a better discipline in his own
camp. The United States is following suit.

     With prospects like that, no state can be secure. Actually, nobody should. Every state should constantly ask itself if it has done everything properly, if it perhaps has offended the Big Brother... This psychology is the objective of all policies of harassment from Stalin's purges to McCarthyism. In the international arena, it may result in the same sort of thing - purges with the use of military resources. As a result, we are moving towards a new variation of an
unsafe world - a proscriptionist globalism. A globalism of scaring others, a globalism of deliberate sanctions, a police globalism.

     As far as Russia is concerned, the question is fairly simple. Unless this possibility is ruled out, military policy should take the US philosophy of security with a grain of salt. After all, the United States is just a big island, and we are a continental nation. Understanding islanders' logic is sometimes difficult for us. And vice versa. Russia cannot rely on American common sense. It needs some protection from fools regardless or whether they live on an island or
a continent. And fools with an ideology are particularly dangerous.

     It is the United States and not Russia who is the inheritor off the expansionist policy of the Soviet Union. Russia will not attend global party conferences with reports of loyalty. Inevitably doomed are attempts to talk to Russia as though it were a Soviet Union in disguise, as well as attempts to force American psychological traumas and xenophobic projections on Russia. It only reiterates the somewhat irrational nature of American political reaction. Bent on controlling everything and everyone, the United States is looking for the same motive in Russia's actions. This mysterious American soul! This time it is Russia that should help the United States get rid of the syndrome of post-Soviet globalism. At the same time, we should not exaggerate the role and importance of the US shifting to and fro.

     US dominance is a reality which grates on the nerves of those who long for the Soviet Union. It prevents these people from seeing pointlessness of this dominance as a resource. A fact is not an ideology.

     We live in a world dominated by Americans. Let us take it with humor and that is that. We have to be cleverer than Americans, and that is that. Moreover, it is not very difficult.

     Thirty years ago KGB dominance over individuals was more impressive than US dominance over the Old World nowadays.

     The Kremlin State Department provoked us then just the way the Washington Lubyanka is provoking - a dissenter was forced into getting a gun or a bomb. It was needed in order to do away with the dissenter in question for good. But rouges chose a different option. Back then, a person who decided to fight the global ideocracy could rely only on
the Soviet Constitution, a typewriter, and some student from Italy fond of Dostoyevsky and the man himself as such. These days our confidence is based on the reinforcing European community and one restored and integrating Russia. Even though the US-European alliance remains an important element of the global system, neither Russia nor the European Union in the long run will accept sovietization of the new world order.

The United States should have chosen a better moment to play the Soviet Union.

Interesting thread for showing up the degree of steering by miscue being carried out, but think it might more accurately read "more tyranny coming".

You are right, simply: "More Tyranny Coming" would have been even better. Oh well, next time. Your thoughts are appreciated, thank you.  :)

Speaking of tyranny, lets just go back to 2001, here we go:

"Sovietization" of U.S. Foreign Policy --  the Russian View
Remember '93 when Yeltsin illegally dissolved Russian parliament?  JMSM temporarily forgot about "democracy" & supported tool Yeltsin vs the parliament who they told us were die-hard Communists trying to stir up trouble & take things back to Stalin.

Yes, I remember Yeltsin, I also remember that Russia was on the brink of civil war.

    Missed The Boat

One man said that China and Israel were allied against the United States and that Obama was their agent and the banks and corporations and most of the top-tier ruling class their fully aware allies.

But you did not think yourself worthy to make a call on whether he was right or wrong.

You were sent enough information to rally the nation and the world against organized-crime oligarchs, but you chose not to pass it on, not to speak about it. The mass-media and the "alternative" media were not mentioning it, so why should you?

Nothing that the monetary reformers you see being interviewed have said that is positive outweighs the fact that they deceived the people into thinking that none of the following are worth mentioning, that they exist at all:

1) interest slavery;

2) the net drain of purchasing power due to interest and principal money outflow from the economy was greater than loan inflow in a system where almost all of our money is deposits created by loans;

3) the possibilities of debt repudiation;

4) a thin-air social credit dividend directly to households to reflate the economy with new aggregate demand reflecting true consumer sovereignty;

There is no difference between Huffington and Fox News, Alex Jones and National Public Radio, between Ellen Brown and Michael Hudson, or Lew Rockwell and Gary North, ....

Wasn't there a downed US fighter jet, about 10 yrs ago, when Mossad went to go assist the Chinese?  Such an event shows the reliability of America's big ally in the Middle East.

Not sure that Chinese are all that trusting of Jews, but one never knows.

Look again:

Obama's Presidency Isn't Really Focused on Governing

By Jim Geraghty ~ April 25, 2013 7:33 AM


    From the Thursday edition of the Morning Jolt:

    Ultimately, the Obama Presidency Isn’t Really About Governing.

    Obamacare’s implementation is a “train wreck,” in the words of retiring Montana Democratic senator Max Baucus.

    The president’s gun-control proposals are rejected, because he can’t persuade red-state senators in either party that they would really be of any use in preventing gun violence.

    The great news is that the Boston bombers were killed and apprehended quickly, but Boston’s ordeal left serious questions about the government’s ability to keep an eye on those deemed dangerous, and how carefully it scrutinizes those who seek to become American citizens.

    Time magazine’s Joe Klein gave conservatives an “Alleluia” moment a few weeks ago. The Obama administration announced that the “exchanges” designed to help small businesses buy health insurance for their employees won’t be ready by the promised deadline. Instead of having multiple health-insurance plans, with differing prices, to offer to their employees, small businesses will be able to pick . . . one plan. Pointing to this and the inability the of the Departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs to come up with a unified electronic health-care-records system, Klein lamented, “we are now seeing weekly examples of this administration’s inability to govern.”

    Klein’s dark assessment is probably driven by all of the other promises about Obamacare that have been left in the dust.

    “If you like your plan, you can keep your plan” . . . except for the 7 million people who will lose their coverage, according to the Congressional Budget Office.

    “Your premiums will go down . . .” except that premiums have gone up in the past years, with more hikes projected.

    And let’s not forget one of then–House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s promises, that Obamacare would “create 400,000 jobs almost immediately” and eventually 4 million jobs.

    Klein writes, “as a Democrat — as someone who believes in activist government — [Obama] has a vested interest in seeing that federal programs actually work efficiently. I don’t see much evidence that this is anywhere near the top of his priorities.”

    At moments like this, conservatives feel an enormous temptation to snicker, “Welcome to the party, pal!” But brutally honest assessments like this one from Klein ought to be applauded on the right. One of the reasons the era of Big Government never really ended is because many of its usual fans on the left avert their eyes when it fails so badly. You can’t address a problem if you refuse to see a problem.

    Unfortunately, there’s not much indication that Obama sees the problems and even less indication he wants to see them. The bold promise and the awful delivery have become the signature of this administration, extending well beyond the implementation of health care.

    Elsewhere in his column, Klein writes, “faced a terrible economic crisis — and he has done well to limit the damage.”

    The damage is limited . . . except for the fact that more Americans are living in poverty than when Obama took office. And our workforce participation rate is now the lowest since 1979. And the number of Americans on food stamps is at an all-time high. And the nearly 5 million long-term unemployed have defined life since autumn 2008 as an era of barely scraping by, month after month, year after year..

    Of course, the “shovel-ready jobs” of the stimulus didn’t really live up to the promises, as Obama himself admitted.

    And the web site meant to detail how every dime of stimulus spending ended up full of bad data and nonexistent congressional districts.

    And as of June 2012, three and a half years after the stimulus passed, nearly $8 billion was still waiting to be awarded or sitting in agency accounts.

    And the entire green-jobs initiative clearly hasn’t quite lived up to the hype, including the president’s infamous pledge that “companies like Solyndra are leading the way toward a brighter and more prosperous future.” Now another one of the administration’s high-profile loan recipients, Fisker Automotive, is contemplating bankruptcy; the company hasn’t built a car since July.

    Tuesday we learned, “Taxpayer-backed funds kept flowing to electric carmaker Fisker Automotive months after the company failed to meet key production benchmarks, lawmakers said at a congressional hearing on Wednesday.”

    All of these problems in the stimulus and the administration’s overall economic policies fit in a pattern, don’t they? Klein’s creeping sense that making sure “federal programs actually work efficiently” isn’t really an administration priority?

    Time and again, we hear anecdotes of the president angered, befuddled, and frustrated that the policies implemented in the beginning of his presidency, with a compliant Congress, haven’t generated the results he promised. But very little seems to change, other than a bit of fuming at aides behind closed doors.

    President Obama was surprised to learn, in discussions with economic adviser Christina Romer, that large-scale investment in infrastructure and clean-energy projects wouldn’t create enormous numbers of new jobs.

    In a December 2010 meeting with economic advisers, he “boiled over” with frustration that his housing policies hadn’t helped struggling homeowners like he promised.

    When federal program after federal program fails to generate the desired result, it’s not crazy talk to become at least a little skeptical of the latest pledges and promises and idealistic visions.

    But Democrats often speak as if the Right’s skepticism of the government’s problem-solving ability is driven by some sort of abstract ideological theory. It’s not. It’s usually built upon hard experiences. Human behavior isn’t predictable, particularly their interactions with the government. Unintended consequences pile up like a car crash. The pattern is depressingly predictable: Someone in government comes up with some laudable goal, and announces some new program. After the press conference, when the cameras and microphones are away, implementing the idea proves more complicated than the press-conference announcement made it seem. Deadlines get missed. Costs turn out much higher than expected. Bureaucratic inertia begins to exert the gravitational pull of a black hole.

    Perhaps it is the nature of the modern presidency for the occupant of the Oval Office to glide from photo-op to photo-op, and never spend too much time getting entangled in the messy work of actually making his policies live up to his promises. Certainly that’s the pattern for this president; even in this non-campaign year, the schedule is heavy with a campaign-style rally on gun-control initiatives here, a DCCC fundraiser there, then off to a tour of a national laboratory. He flits from issue to issue; to judge from his remarks and his schedule, the health-care issue is resolved and our health-care system’s problems are fixed. Maybe White House press secretary Jay Carney will get a question about the health-care exchanges or electronic health-care-records system, which he’ll defuse with another defensive, meandering word salad.

   
Implementing Obamacare?
Hey, that’s for somebody else to worry about.
