Government has a slow-down, Wall Street rejoices

October 3, 2013

After all, can’t let the peasants find out that stopping runaway debt is a good thing!

In typical government-shill propaganda mode, ABC reporter said (or read) that “anger is growing across the nation” over the government slowdown. They then put on two sound bites from interviews supposedly with “the man on the street” (really?), that didn’t like it.

That was the morning. On the way home, there were so many callers on local talk shows that blasted the Obamacare law and cheered the cutting of funds that these local yokels (here on a couple of Miami, Florida stations) started begging people to call that actually liked it. Right after that, on the show where this gal who usually just reads the news, a guy called in who had lost his job because of Obamacare, along with nine other guys. Bet you everybody who isn’t a D.C. insider has a family member who’s been forced down to part-time jobs, too.

Of course there are lots more people who are mad about them forcing nationalized control of medicine against the will of the American people and who are angry at the ones who did it –and changed the rules to do it—and angry at what it’s doing. And THAT is the big news for two years now.

Lots of people are also mad at the Big Corporate news media for acting as government propaganda organs. And at local media guys who are saying they don’t like it either but “it’s the law” blah blah, as if the House has never defunded anything before.

Not for nothing the engineers of the US Constitution gave the House the responsibility of originating funding legislation. That’s because it most directly represents the people in local districts, and therefore are closest to the taxpayers.

The longer this goes on, the more that Americans will see that life goes on, and life goes on maybe even better, the world did not end, the economy did not crash.. And what’s better, Clapper is complaining that the NSA can’t spy on us like it wants to. Some IRS auditors have had to stop working (for the time being).

The big news of the day was that a bunch of WW2 veterans broke through a line of yellow tape to view their monument. So they don’t have enough money to keep this open-air monument “open”, but they have enough to send a bunch of cops to keep people out. Right.

By the way, the narrative that the Republicans are “holding the government hostage” is such a laugh riot. Anyway, they’re funding all kinds of stuff and sending the bills to the Senate, but IT IS HARRY REID who is refusing to let any of them through for a Senate vote. So who’s holding who hostage?

And Wall Street rejoiced with a rally! Hope that this train wreck might be stopped! People in the financial world maybe figure that this kibosh on runaway spending and this blocking move against dollar dilution is good! That this forcing on the emergency brake is good!

Maybe these RINO’s are just doing theater, though. The longer this slowdown keeps going, this time, Americans are going to blame the Democrat Party and Obamacare. It is an attack on the economy that al Qaeda could only dream of, that will do a million times more damage in infrastructure and lives than even crashing the towers.

No wonder Morsi and other dictators figure he’s on their side.

Ted Cruz is right — Refuse to fund Obamacare! Nobody likes it!

August 24, 2013

My response to the blast at Ted Cruz‘s strategy for stopping Obamacare:
http://www.theamericanconservative.com/articles/why-ted-cruz-cant-win-a-government-shutdown/

“Obamacare will fail” refers to the fact that as marketed, even written, it will fail, and to fix it, the oligarchs will demand more steps toward overt nationalization, like Obama promised back before he was a candidate, when he said they would have to do it by steps

Ted Cruz is the only way to stop runaway government. The sequester agreement may yet still be known to savvy historians as the one chance the Republican Party blew to stop the tyrannical government before it got its legs.

If not now, when? If not here, then where?

People are SICK TO DEATH of so-called conservative “strategists” who keep demanding compromise for the sake of winning later, hoping we will forget that TODAY IS YESTERDAY’S “LATER”, and they were ALWAYS WRONG, WRONG, WRONG, and wrong again!

To hell with the media scare tactics! Have these clueless “conservatives” learned nothing from the sequester scare? It came and went and the Slasher-in-Chief exposed himself as willing to cut first where it affects Americans in the street.

But the Republican Party bosses have already engineered its catastrophe. Throwaway candidate Bob Dole, for the election they obviously wanted to lose for some reason, because they’re so scared of the media I guess, instead of being scared of losing sight of principle. Then the George W Bush, who outspent Democrat Party hacks. Then they engineered the loss in 2008 with the candidate most likely to lose, John McCain. Some of their supporters began to wake up. Obama scared more of them awake, but then four freshman Republicans in Congress, elected on the tea party wave, turned tail or traitor and failed to stop runaway debt.

Since when is the government-media complex ever going to demand shrinkage of government?

 

Tired of Karl Rove, the empty pontificator

March 28, 2013

I’m so sick, sick, sick of Karl Rove, a good reason to tune out from Fox News.

Such a hypocrite, who pronounces judgment on all the Republicans.

And, NO, Karl Rove, NO, George W. Bush was NOT a “social conservative“. Blah blah blah blather is not acceptable. Instead of defending the truth in statements by Republicans that are too much like normal Americans for him.

He is indeed a master manipulator, helped maneuver the country into a ten-year two-front war that is still on. They say one thing and do another. Make not mistake. There are still some 18,000 American employees still in Iraq and many more in Afghanistan. It seems that American soldiers are in Jordan training Syrian “rebels” who are fighting Assad to make the country safe for takeover by al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood. That’s what happened in Egypt and Libya.

Rove and such ilk have lost too much of America, like the 2012 elections.

(By the way, fellas, it’s NOT “marriage equality”, it’s marriage inequality they’re pushing. Even at the Supreme Court, some of the most ridiculous anti-scientific foolish pronouncements are made, such as one of these lawyers saying out loud, with a straight face, in front of the country, that homosexual behavior is an “immutable” (his word). There are hundreds of thousands of former homosexuals, including now happily married and with children in a natural nuclear family. They put the lie to this blatant misinformation. Even Fox News is covering up the truth on this one. Who is brave enough to interview someone who has left the homosexual fixation to live a heterosexual life.

“Buy the truth, sell it not”. The truth is very valuable to you, accurate information is a treasure, and it is not worth selling it out for anything.

 

Happy New Year? (Thomas Sewell) – “Prophet of the Year”

January 1, 2013

Thomas Sewell’s article, pretty good:
http://www.wnd.com/2012/12/happy-new-year/

…<snipped>…

With that in mind, my choice for the prediction of the year award goes to Bret Stephens of the Wall Street Journal for his column of Jan. 24, 2012, titled: “The GOP Deserves to Lose.”

Despite reciting a litany of reasons why President Obama deserved to be booted out of the White House, Stephens said, “Let’s just say right now what voters will be saying in November, once Barack Obama has been re-elected: Republicans deserve to lose.”

To me, the Republican establishment is the eighth wonder of the world. How they can keep repeating the same mistakes for decades on end is beyond my ability to explain.

Bret Stephens said, back at the beginning of 2012, that Mitt Romney was one of the “hollow men,” and that voters “usually prefer the man who stands for something.”

Yet this is not just about Mitt Romney.

Sewell goes on to explain things in a way that’s easy to understand, but one thing I don’t know if he understands is that it’s not a matter of Republicans pulling punches and mouthing empty platitudes. The problem with the Republican establishment is that it is part of the same Establishment as Democrats and they are LYING because they do NOT want to get rid of big government, they do NOT want to stop entitlements, and certainly don’t want to get rid of all that lucrative military spending.

Republicans shoot themselves in the foot to make sure they don’t upset all that crony capitalism they love.

Look at this:

That was stupid advice. In public opinion, you have to have a better PR strategy than plead the fifth by silence. When they use real bullets to shoot at you, use real bullets to shoot back, and if the bullets are just lying accusations, you shoot them back.

To that I would add you shoot back with extra power added on. What I mean by that is, use every opportunity they open up for you, to drive your big Mack truck through.

If Warren Buffet demands they raise his taxes, don’t just tell him to “donate” for an example, ask him if he really wants his neighbors to put the gun of the law to his head to take his property. Ask him if he means we should rob from his peers that disagree. Make big hay of the fact he is admitting that HE is being unfair by making all that much more money than the rest of us.

Ask Warren Buffet if he is going to order collective bargaining rights for the elected representatives of all the workers in ALL the companies he owns. Cut out the federal middleman.

Does he really want a “Robin Hood” to run the country?

Buffet, Put up or shut up. Invest in something that results in permanent job growth instead of voting to take money from Mom and Pop investors. And instead of HIDING the WHY your secretary pays a higher rate than you, EDUCATE the people who don’t know the subject. I once thought you were an honest investor. Now I’m quite sure you’re not so honest.

But mostly it’s education. If you think your neighbor should not be able to muzzle you or rob you, or tell you what to do, and make you pay by force for his ideas, then don’t vote for a government or a politician that does it.

Alert: Boehner joins the dictatorship

December 7, 2012

http://www.wnd.com/2012/12/inside-story-of-boehners-conservative-purge/

There is a purge on. The plutocrats saw a crack in their control network when Ron Paul brought a flood of young folks and all kinds of other freedom-minded adults into his demands for sanity and individual liberty, so they blatantly abused them at the convention without even trying to hide it, and then changed the rules to make sure they don’t have another chance. Top-down control is now in-your-face.

The Dems got exposed too, telling their rank-and-file to line up and give God at least a bit of lip service.

Now Boehner seems to have forgotten that Americans (apparently) not only reelected Obama, but they also re-elected Republicans to the House on a platform of stopping the spending madness and the taxing madness.

It made no sense at all. Just passing on what’s going on…

They’re pushing sanity out of the way and making way for the dollar crash at full speed ahead.

Chris Wallace: Unfair and unbalanced

December 2, 2012

Just watched Chris Wallace‘s interviews with Tim Geithner and Speaker Boehner.

The way he grilled Boehner, who he had on after Geithner, contrasted with the way he let Geithner slither by the “hard questions”.

Even just with the question of “Are you willing to go over the cliff” (if they don’t get their minimum requirements).

Neither of them are serious about attacking the “fiscal cliff” problem, because the real fiscal cliff is the dollar crash.

Even so, at least the Republican politicos are mouthing the right things about the spending problem.

We went through the big noise about the debt limit when there was the best chance to get something serious in getting things in order and enforcing a beginning of sanity.

 

CPA-USA is all giddy over Obama’s plans –same as their plans

December 2, 2012
Ron Paul, member of the United States House of...

But get this, the Communist Party USA is having multiple orgasms over Obama getting (putatively) elected again:
http://www.cpusa.org/defeat-for-the-right-victory-for-the-people-democracy/

And the word “war” appears nowhere at all on this glowing basking in the fact that their platform got elected on –so they say– the issues they advocate.

Of course they ignore the elephant in the room, the fact that the genuine lovers of liberty abandoned the Republican Party in great numbers, after their brutal suppression of Ron Paul delegates both in the local and state levels and at the national convention itself in Tampa, and that many Tea Party types also decided not to vote for a fraud that would do the same things as the worse of the two evils.

And get this jewel of tortured lack of logic:

The Republicans were quick to say that no sweeping mandate emerges out of this election — people voted for the status quo. Look at the results in the House, they say.

But apart from the House, where Republicans retained their majority (in part because of gerrymandering), there is no evidence to support their claim.

By golly is that all? Republicans kept the House? And gerrymandering is all you got? So votes for Republicans don’t count? Phht, such hypocrisy.

Not that I believe in the “majority vote” as some bequeathing of divine wisdom, after all, Obama was re-elected. And Scott Walker got re-elected even after winning the first recall vote of a sitting governor in the history of the United States.

So the secret is out, and no longer secret. The Communist Party USA agenda and policy is the same as the Obama administration‘s. Sorry Newsweek, that still does NOT mean that we area “all socialists now”. That stupidity was knocked down in 2010, wasn’t it. All? By force?

Millions of us still appreciate it when our natural individual rights are respected. And some of that number are preparing to defend it.

Watch for a campaign against dissident Americans who dare to defend themselves against attacks by federal authorities or even local authorities. Already the police forces across the country get lists of bad guys where Ron Paul bumper stickers share a place on the same list with Aryan Nation.

When they do that, while they still let us run around with those stickers, it is a psychological preparation for more to come later.

Campaign for Liberty

After nearly 30 years of fighting the out-of-control Federal Reserve in Washington, my time in Congress is rapidly coming to an end. But what a way to go out!

I am so pleased to tell you about what could be the crowning achievement of my legislative efforts – passing Audit the Fed and exposing its corruption of our money supply and economy.

Earlier this year, my “Audit the Fed” bill passed the House 327 to 98 and had a record number of cosponsors in the Senate.

And because of its overwhelming popularity, Audit the Fed has been added as an official plank of the Republican Party platform.

Our chances of passing Audit the Fed are the best they’ve ever been.

You and I can make history – and help change the course of the country – by passing Audit the Fed through Congress.

Please take a look at the email below from Campaign for Liberty President John Tate for more details.

Campaign for Liberty is on the frontlines of this battle, so I am personally asking you to help them finish this fight with an incredible victory.

Afterwards, please forward this email to your friends and family.

For Liberty,

Ron Paul

 

Briefest commentary about slavery

October 20, 2012

The United States today, with all the socialist confiscatory taxation and micro-dictated rules for all the citizens to obey, is still one of the nations with most freedom, where most of the anti-freedom laws, rules, and practices are implicit although very real. Slavery is when the master has the power to tell you what you can and cannot do and what you must do and confiscates your production, while leaving you whatever he wants to. It’s true that the government now takes almost half the average American income, almost all of it to spend on the whims of the rulers –not counting the inflation stealth tax– but in terms of economic slavery there are other “advanced” developed nations worse.

Slavery was universal in the “civilized” worlds of all the world empires up to the Roman Empire. Only with its decline and the ascendancy of the influence of Christ‘s and St. Patrick‘s anti-slavery legacy did slavery begin to fade away in Europe.

I am an equal basher of both halves of the two-party cartel that makes the rules that keep others out of government, but since most ignorant comments are directed against Republican Party I try to balance it out. I especially hate lying revisionist history about the members of this duopoly.

Libertarians vs. People Who Love to be Told What To Do

September 27, 2012

Now the other stuff.

>>You believe there should be no laws or regulations on drugs? legal or illegal?

Illegal: What is more dangerous? Drugs or the drug wars? Ron Paul questioned the audience at a debate once: If drugs were legalized today, would you rush to get heroin tomorrow? Why should we create an 1000% profit margin for the bad guys?

Legal: What good does it do? It creates an artificial barrier to (a) you getting the drugs you need because the supply is artificially and unfairly limited to keep up profits and help Big Pharma (Oh, you thought they were to stop big mean Pharma from poisoning you?) and (b) it makes the gullible consumers of government-approved media feel “safe” because good old Uncle Sam is “protecting” them.

>>(For instance, since Coca Cola would no longer need to accurately list their ingredients, an addition of some addicting agent, say, cocaine, would be OK with you?)

Do you have any reliable idea about what aspartame (approved by the FDA) does to you. Is that okay with you?

>>Since we are not going to be interfering with auto manufacturers, airbags would not need to be effective, or even installed.

And the Tuckermobile could have been the dominant auto today, still innovating, and who knows if we’d already have skyways instead of highways and skyports instead of carports…

>>You would rely on your church for providing your hospital care.

Like before LBJ messed it all up, and the Catholic hospital he worked at never turned away anybody for lack of money, and before billions of dollars pumped up the demand side of hospital care with free money from a bottomless payer. That payer confiscates whatever it can get and has a backup printing press when honest people run out of money.

My dad was a union welder and pastor, but the church was in one of the poorest neighborhoods in St. Louis, and

My life with a single, poor, Mom after the Dad left was not bereft of health care. Stitches in my jaw once when I fell, an infection, a family doctor that was

(1) affordable and

(2) had an office in a black area, full of sick folks, and

(3) I know he took care of a lot of people free. Free. Just like the our neighborhood lawyer, one Keifhauver or something like that, good man, he did pro bono all over the place for the poorest of us. Tried to help bad guys turn around, let them off near my Dad’s church, hoping they would wander in and change… Some do sometimes..

Everybody was a lot healthier then too. We didn’t see so many fat folks then. People ATE healthier food, didn’t get sick as much. Except for places in the world where government cronies confiscate their “fair share”.

>> Would you be in favor of dropping all highway speed limits?

Do you know how they set speed limits today? You think it’s experts judging “safe”? It’s REVENUE. Confiscation excuses. That’s why they love red light cameras. It’s revenues. And they hit the poor the worst, and we know you love that, because when health care is rationed, the rulers get the best care and poor get leftovers.

Some use a different method. They measure traffic speed on a road and set the limit at a high percentile, say 90 percentile, meaning whatever makes lawbreakers and gets revenue from 10% of the drivers.

Almost all people drive reasonably. There are private farms and roads and how often do you think people drive crazy on them?

>>State universities and colleges would be disbanded? Public education would be eliminated, and there would be no way of knowing how your hot dogs are made.

Speaking of hot dogs, that’s just a bunch of pure baloney. Best thing that could happen to education, and black folks and poor folks are demanding more charters, for a little bit more freedom.

Where would be today without the unfettered, unchained education of Isaac Newton and Francis Bacon and Michael Faraday? The Pilgrims made sure they had schools so the kids would be able to read the Bible. Literacy around 1900 was around 95% in the Protestant nations, about 80% in the Catholic countries, and 30% elsewhere.

St. Patrick led the entire island of Irish to Christ without government help and taught them to read and write without government help and they saved the Greek and Roman classics without government help and without robbing their neighbors like governments do. That’s right, Rome couldn’t help him because they were busy watching the Vandals and the Visigoths burn their books, including Augustine’s.

So when Charlemagne looked for somebody to bring learning back to his dominion, he looked north to the Irish and the British who had been infected by the Irish with education.

Christian schools produce graduates that score way better than the government schools, and home schoolers are walking home with the academic prizes and winning academic competitions and moot court debates in multiple times their numbers.

>> Unions could use secondary boycotts? Bribery of public officials would become SOP, and prostitutes can be recruited in the church Sunday Schools.

Unions are a racket the hurt the poorest of the poor, making the marginally employable into unemployable, and limiting productive activity that could raise all boats for everybody.

Bribery of public officials is done today, except it’s done in “legal” ways handled by the legislators, PLUS there’s no way or reason to bribe a government official that doesn’t exist. You have to bribe somebody in the free market instead by offering him something of real value.

Prostitutes won’t be looking in Sunday schools for their john’s, they’ll wait till the guys are away from their wives and their Moms, just like today.
