[The first "supply-side" cuts in social programs would never have passed without the enormous outpouring of public sympathy for Reagan, after Hinckley's bullet caught him under the left arm. As the pundits have since said, we got "Reaganomics" thanks to Jodie Foster. I guess we will have to blame her for the shit that has flowed downhill since that major mistake. Who will get the sympathy bullet needed to gain public support for the next round of Congressional throat-cutting, Mr. Boehner?]
According to Mundell, the wave of sympathy for Reagan that was engendered by the assassination attempt deterred Democrats in Congress from voting against his proposed tax cuts. Because of this accident of history, the US administered a big fiscal stimulus at the same time that Paul Volcker at the Federal Reserve was administering tight money. This, for Mundell, was vital in creating the era of prosperity that followed.
“ Taxi Driver is the most important movie ever made from the standpoint of creating GDP,” Mundell told delegates. “It’s the movie that made the Reagan revolution possible. That movie was indirectly responsible for adding between $5 trillion and $15 trillion of output to the US economy.”
$3.7 TRILLION DOLLAR ONE YEAR BUDGET!!!! It took the whole entire hundreds of years of history since the founding of this country until he was elected and we were in about $10 Trillion in debt. Obama is spending us into oblivion and is doubling to quadrupling spending compared to Bush and we know how bad he was but this is twice as bad and to make is better unemployment has almost doubled since Obama's 2 years in office. This is the price we pay for electing a person with no experience other than being a CIA community organizer. It is obvious he is just a puppet that has been placed by the global elite and global banking cartels to do their bidding. What audacity and sheer ignorance that he has the nerve to talk about we can't sacrifice the investments in our future when we wont' even have a future if we keep spending this much much. Unless he means we are investing in a future that leads to bankruptcy, ruin, and 3rd world poverty in the USA! At this point it's not a Dem. or Rep. issue, it's an issue that if we don't stop spending what we don't have we WILL go bankrupt and ruin our future and our kids futures end of story....
(As if Things Weren’t Bad Enough, Russian Professor Predicts End of U.S. – Wall Street Journal – 12/29/08)
- The collapse of the US Dollar is just around the corner...
- Key states (like California) are ready to declare bankruptcy...
- The College Tuition bubble is ready to burst...
- Gold and silver paper certificates are exceeding the real amount reserves of these precious metals...
- The average price of gasoline in the US is $3.17 per gallon...
- If the Zionist regime decides to launch a surprise attack against Iran's nuclear facilities, it will not only accelerate the demise of the US economy but also the end of American hegemony in the Middle East...
- Therefore, better be ready for the worst...
Unfortunately for those who label themselves as "patriots," this is exactly what the elites want: to create a hostile environment in which Martial Law can easily be implemented. Too little, too late for changes since the collapse of America has already started and nothing will stop the International Bankers in pursuing their ultimate plan: the creation of a new economic system in which they will exert absolute control over the masses.
National sovereignty and patriotism are things of the past. Accept the new order and learn to cope with it....
Fact: The bankster engineered Trilateral Commission, Counsel on Foreign Relations and the CIA is at the center of backdoor secret trade agreements that relocated American technology and manufacturing to foreign countries and purposely destroyed States’ manufacturing economy and tax base.
Fact: The Bush/Obama administration, in league with the criminal banksters, has purposely bankrupted America and individual States with a fabricated and unjustified War, mortgage fraud, financial fraud, securities fraud and the systematic pillaging of the Treasury via the Federal Reserve.
Fact: Each American citizen is legally an indentured slave to National debt owed to the banksters. Each taxpayer owes $127,783 in National debt and as Ben Franklin would say “Creditors have better memories than debtors”. The banksters WILL collect their money from YOU one way or another.
Fact: Your trust vested in the Democrat and Republican Parties has been betrayed by corruption resulting in Treason. If you want to be Free and Independent, you will have to fight for it like your Forefathers fought for their Democracy, Independence, Freedom and Liberty. If not, you deserve to be a slave.
Fact: The systematic collapse of individual States and the United States into the North American Union is right on schedule as planned by the Trilateral Commission, CIA and the CFR and implemented by the Bush/Obama administration and the power vested in the UN’s NATO.
Fact: Revolution of the People for the People and by the People to overthrow oppressors is our Heritage and a Democracy model for the Free World.
Fact: The ungrateful multinational American corporations grew from main street capitalism nurtured by a generous and benevolent Democracy that they later corrupted, disgraced and destroyed.
Fact: Most Americans take their Freedom and Liberty for granted and know little of Democracy and Independence. Most will not understand the difference until it is too late and the military boot is on their necks.
Fact: Revolution and Justice is countered by the “War Of Terrorism” against YOU. As Bush Jr. explains “Hell, that Constitution is just a fucking piece of paper”.
“That Big Wheel it be a turning”. Like a remote controlled driverless steam-roller that appears out of control, but isn’t. This is as creepy as Cheney being in control of NORAD on 9/11....the obvious False Flag attack made in USA and Israhell....
For example, Paul Craig Roberts, whose conservative credentials are impeccable - former Assistant Secretary of the Treasury under President Reagan, one of the people who most widely promoted "trickle down" economics, former editor of the Wall Street Journal, listed by Who's Who in America as one of the 1,000 most influential political thinkers in the world, and PhD economist - writes:
Obama’s new budget is a continuation of Wall Street’s class war against the poor and middle class.And Ron Paul - who has very strong conservative credentials, and who won the Presidential straw poll at the Conservative Political Action Conference two years in a row - recently said in his CPAC speech:
Wall Street wasn’t through with us when the banksters sold their fraudulent derivatives into our pension funds, wrecked Americans’ job prospects and retirement plans, secured a $700 billion bailout at taxpayers’ expense while foreclosing on the homes of millions of Americans, and loaded up the Federal Reserve’s balance sheet with several trillion dollars of junk financial paper in exchange for newly created money to shore up the banks’ balance sheets.
The effect of the Federal Reserve’s “quantitative easing” on inflation, interest rates, and the dollar’s foreign exchange value are yet to hit. When they do, Americans will get a lesson in poverty.
Now the ruling oligarchies have struck again, this time through the federal budget. The U.S. government has a huge military/security budget. It is as large as the budgets of the rest of the world combined. The Pentagon, CIA, and Homeland Security budgets account for the $1.1 trillion federal deficit that the Obama administration forecasts for fiscal year 2012. This massive deficit spending serves only one purpose--the enrichment of the private companies that serve the military/security complex. These companies, along with those on Wall Street, are who elect the U.S. government.
The U.S. is determined to create as many enemies as possible in order to continue its bleeding of the American population to feed the ravenous military/security complex.
With a perpetual budget deficit driven by the military/security complex’s desire for profits, the real cause of America’s enormous budget deficit is off-limits for discussion.
The U.S. military/security complex is capable of creating any number of... events in order to make these threats seem real to a public whose intelligence is limited to TV, shopping mall experiences, and football games.
So Americans are stuck with enormous budget deficits that the Federal Reserve must finance by printing new money, money that sooner or later will destroy the purchasing power of the dollar and its role as world reserve currency. When the dollar goes, American power goes.
For the ruling oligarchies, the question is: how to save their power.
Their answer is: make the people pay.
And that is what their latest puppet, President Obama, is doing.
These goals [of propping up foreign dictators who serve U.S. interests] are far more important to the American elite than Pell Grants that enable poor Americans to obtain an education, or clean water, or community block grants, or the low income energy assistance program (cut by the amount that U.S. taxpayers are forced to give to Israel).
There are also $7,700 million of cuts in Medicaid and other health programs over the next five years.
Given the magnitude of the U.S. budget deficit, these sums are a pittance. The cuts will have no effect on U.S. Treasury financing needs. They will put no breaks on the Federal Reserve’s need to print money in order to keep the U.S. government in operation.
These cuts serve one purpose: to further the Republican Party’s myth that America is in economic trouble because of the poor: The poor are shiftless. They won’t work. The only reason unemployment is high is that the poor had rather be on welfare.
A new addition to the welfare myth is that recent middle class college graduates won’t take the jobs offered them, because their parents have too much money, and the kids like living at home without having to do anything. A spoiled generation, they come out of university refusing any job that doesn’t start out as CEO of a Fortune 500 company. The reason that engineering graduates do not get job interviews is that they do not want them.
What all this leads to is an assault on “entitlements”, which means Social Security and Medicare. The elites have programmed, through their control of the media, a large part of the population, especially those who think of themselves as conservatives, to conflate “entitlements” with welfare. America is going to hell not because of foreign wars that serve no American purpose, but because people, who have paid 15% of their payroll all their lives for old age pensions and medical care, want “handouts” in their retirement years. Why do these selfish people think that working Americans should be forced through payroll taxes to pay for the pensions and medical care of the retirees? Why didn’t the retirees consume less and prepare for their own retirement?
The elite’s line, and that of their hired spokespersons in “think tanks” and universities, is that America is in trouble because of its retirees.
Too many Americans have been brainwashed to believe that America is in trouble because of its poor and its retirees. America is not in trouble because it coerces a dwindling number of taxpayers to support the military/security complex’s enormous profits, American puppet governments abroad, and Israel.
The American elite’s solution for America’s problems is not merely to foreclose on the homes of Americans whose jobs were sent offshore, but to add to the numbers of distressed Americans with nothing to lose the sick and the dispossessed retirees, and the university graduates who cannot find jobs that have been sent to China and India.
We’re going to continue to bail out, we’re going to continue to spend the money, nobody wants to cut. I am sure that half the people in this room won’t cut one penny on the military, and the military is not equated to defense. Defense spending is one thing, military spending is what Eisenhower called the “military-industrial complex” and we have to go after that.
But let’s say government, as you all, I am sure would agree, is out of control, and it’s very hard for us to get a handle on it. So let’s say we even theoretically, and a miracle happens and we balance the budget where we are today, it would be still a disaster because we’re spending too much money. But it wouldn’t change a whole lot. When a crisis comes, guess what happens? Guess who does the bailing out? The Federal Reserve used $4 trillion to pass out without congressional approval and most people say “Oh, well that’s the Federal Reserve’s job to do that.” No, it is our job to check up and find what the Federal Reserve has done, audit them, and find out who their buddies are that they’re taking care of.
The Federal Reserve creates money out of thin air, they can loan to banks, central banks of the world, to other governments and international financial institutions and we’re not even allowed to know. They resent the fact that when I ask these questions, that they don’t have to give us information. That’s why the bill to audit the Fed is the first step to ending the Federal Reserve.
I think and I believe that we have had way too much bipartisanship for about 60 years. .... It’s the bipartisanship of the welfare system, the warfare system, the monetary system, the challenge to our civil liberties, it all goes through with support from both parties. So there’s way too much bipartisanship. This should be a challenge of the issue of philosophy – good philosophy versus bad philosophy.
But where I think we go astray on this exceptionalism is there are some people and sometimes they’re referred as neoconservatives and they’re sort of neo-Jacobins where they believe that we have this moral responsibility to use force to go around the world and say, “You will do it our way or else.” Well force doesn’t work, it never works....
These protests must be considered as another of the CIA "false-flag" revolutions, only this one is, so far, intended to keep the lid on, not calculated to boil over, as in the Middle East. This is the reason that the "counter-protesters" are not simply joining with the first group demonstrating to protect their incomes.
In Europe, there are no counter-protests, no anti-anti-government protesters seeking to nullify the anti-government protests. In these first American anti-austerity protests, we are seeing the expected, suspicious, corporate-sponsored counter-demonstrators, gathering in the streets to break the formation of a national focal point, preventing the formation of a solid center of the people. The protesters, calling themselves "conservatives," who are championing program cuts do not, for some reason, want to see social service programs preserved, even though all of them will one day need some of those same programs just to get medical care, or to stay alive, or to have emergency programs and services, such as police and fire protection (SEE: Detroit, Less Than a Full-Service City). We are seeing an attempt to revive all the bad things of Reaganomics and Bushism in these counter-demonstrators, who march, coincidentally, as their national leader, Speaker Boehner is pushing deep cuts in the House....
The people of Wisconsin, who want to see something remain of the American Republic, must turn-out support for the workers' rights crowd in far greater numbers than the corporate-sponsored side can muster. The real story should concern this hostile anti-worker corporatism, which exists to attack workers who defend their rights, and to capitalize on the workers' grief, relieving themselves of contractual obligations by transferring them to the workers themselves. All over Europe, the old age pensioners are in the streets defending their livelihoods against corporate privatization programs which really rob from the poor, the sick and the elderly, in order to profit the rich. Yet, here in the "land of the free," we see brother set against brother, as the man with a decent job defends that job by attacking those who have nothing but the right to survive--and that is what is being taken from many of them--yet the corporate-backed thugs in the streets gather in mobs and shake their fists at them in disgust.
It's happening in Wisconsin. Its Labor--vs.- anti-labor. It's Ronald Reagan--vs.- Mondale...It is the basic right to organize to defend one's rights and to improve working conditions--vs.- the corporations and their mobs for hire, like the Tea Party gang, or whatever they are called. It may be true that much of the anti-union opposition is real (the "unions have killed this country" crowd), but, I would think that many of them are there because someone with either money or power asked them to attend. Believe it or not, people, it is a fight between corporations and the rest of us. If you are not a paid part of some corporation, then you are part of the general population being targeted for some great rip-off by those corporations. Unions and the fights for workers' rights (which they have waged for all of us, down through the decades), are the reason that you legally cannot be worked like an abused animal, and your children cannot be forced to labor hard hours at dangerous jobs, whenever you can no longer work, or find work....and believe me, that day is coming, sooner than you think....There is a war on for your mind, and the corpo-fascists are bankrolling it....A pertinent quote made 20 years ago by Eustace Mullins - we have about 20 months to answer it?
" American history in the 20th century has recorded the amazing achievements of the Federal Reserve bankers. First, the outbreak of World War I, which was made possible by the funds available from the new central bank of the United States. Second, the Agricultural Depression of 1920. Third, the Black Friday Crash on Wall Street of October, 1929 and the ensuing Great Depression. Fourth, World War II. Fifth, the conversion of the assets of the United States and its citizens from real property to paper assets from 1945 to the present, transforming a victorious America and foremost world power in 1945 to the world's largest debtor nation in 1990. Today, this nation lies in economic ruins, devastated and destitute, in much the same dire straits in which Germany and Japan found themselves in 1945. Will Americans act to rebuild our nation, as Germany and Japan have done when they faced the identical conditions which we now face--or will we continue to be enslaved by the Babylonian debt money system which was set up by the Federal Reserve Act in 1913 to complete our total destruction? This is the only question which we have to answer, and we do not have much time left to answer it. - Eustace Mullins, 1991"

I am really sorry that I ever wore the same uniform....Incredible...When discussing the corruption and decadence of the "elite" with a buddy of mine, I asked him what he thought would happen if Anonymous released the financial records of the world's elite to a large enough percentage of the internet population so that it could not be buried. His response was thought provoking:
"These people have all the rope in the world. Up until now, they've been using it to pull strings in the shadows and hang everybody. Now, if all that rope was revealed for everyone to see, the people they've been screwing would then turn around and use that rope to hang them all."
This is based on the assumption that there are enough people in this country who give a goddamn about the Constitution and are in positions of low-to-mid level authority, and the assumption that these people have the spine to stand up and refuse orders that violate their oath to Defend and Uphold. If this assumption holds true, and this information goes public, I believe my friend's prediction will quickly become a reality, and the people who will be doing the hanging will be the very security forces the "elite" built up and designed to keep them in power for the rest of their natural (and perhaps someday unnatural) lives.
Culpable? Maybe not in the classic sense. We The People know, but what we "know" is often shrouded in secrecy and obscured by disinformation pumped by the Bullshit Factory that has expanded exponentially since it was first truly organized shortly before WWII. We The People have been waiting for a catalyst, something that will spark the "Day of Rage" that will result in the removal from power of the scumbags that do not have the interests of We The People at heart.
What we've been hampered by is the fact that the best sources for this information are extremely reluctant to come forward with the truth, as they know they will be immediately attacked by the weasels, demonized, and turned upon. Most people may not "trust" news from the MSM, but most people don't have many other sources of information. Wayne's record is impeccable, and I trust Wayne to lay it down like it is. But there are a host of other alternative news sites out there that attempt to mimic that stance, but are quite certainly disinformation agents trying to dilute or pollute the thought-sphere. If we cannot focus on the specific issues and prioritize our action as a movement, then we will be divided and conquered. Just look at how the bipartisan support for "End the Fed" dissolved when the "Tea Party" aggressively hijacked the movement.
As far as supporting the troops goes, I agree that the support of the troops should not include support of imperialist nation-building missions. I strongly believe in this statement: "Support Our Troops: Bring Them HOME!" They have a far more important job to do on the home front, securing our borders to ensure the "elite" do not escape during our long-overdue "Day of Rage", so that they can be brought to trial and humiliated in front of their globalist peers.
Anything less won't cut it. A large-scale "revolution" by armed force in this country will quickly lead to internal warfare from competing factions, as the "elite" have been very busily driving wedges into the fault lines between segments of the population that honestly have way more common ground than differences. They have done this by managing perceptions, and I know several good and intelligent people that have been taken in by the false Left-Right paradigm. There are other lines, too, but this one's the doozy.
In the end, it's all of us or none of us. We need something that will get all of us on the street screaming for these assholes to surrender to the authority of the law. That's the yard-arm we'll hang them from: the "elite" believe that laws are for other people. If they are exposed for the criminals they are, and dealt with in kind, it will give us the catharsis we need to get back on track. They can't be allowed to be martyrs: they need to be disgraced publicly and dealt with like the trash they are....
