Farewell Bill of Rights

Any tea party supported representative, Senator or Representative, that voted for the NDAA section 1031 with the indefinite detention of American citizens by the military without legal due process will be targeted for defeat in the next election.

These politicians apparently have never read nor understood the U.S. Constitution that they swore an oath to protect and defend.

The tea party people are going to be real upset when they find out about this.

Shame on Congress.

Defeat all politicians who voted for this!

Three myths about the detention bill

By Glenn Greenwald

“…Condemnation of President Obama is intense, and growing, as a result of his announced intent to sign into law the indefinite detention bill embedded in the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). These denunciations come not only from the nation’s leading civil liberties and human rights groups, but also from the pro-Obama New York Times Editorial Page, which today has a scathing Editorial describing Obama’s stance as “a complete political cave-in, one that reinforces the impression of a fumbling presidency” and lamenting that “the bill has so many other objectionable aspects that we can’t go into them all,” as well as from vocal Obama supporters such as Andrew Sullivan, who wrote yesterday that this episode is “another sign that his campaign pledge to be vigilant about civil liberties in the war on terror was a lie.” In damage control mode, White-House-allied groups are now trying to ride to the rescue with attacks on the ACLU and dismissive belittling of the bill’s dangers.

For that reason, it is very worthwhile to briefly examine — and debunk — the three principal myths being spread by supporters of this bill, and to do so very simply: by citing the relevant provisions of the bill, as well as the relevant passages of the original 2001 Authorization to Use Military Force (AUMF), so that everyone can judge for themselves what this bill actually includes (this is all above and beyond the evidence I assembled in writing about this bill yesterday):

Myth # 1: This bill does not codify indefinite detention …”

“… Myth #2: The bill does not expand the scope of the War on Terror as defined by the 2001 AUMF

“… Myth #3: U.S. citizens are exempted from this new bill …”

Fascism

“…Fascism (play /ˈfæʃɪzəm/) is a radical authoritarian nationalist political ideology.[1][2] Fascists seek to rejuvenate their nation based on commitment to the national community as an organic entity, in which individuals are bound together in national identity by suprapersonal connections of ancestry, culture, and blood.[3] To achieve this, fascists purge forces, ideas, people, and systems deemed to be the cause of decadence and degeneration.[3] Fascists advocate the creation of a totalitarian single-party state that seeks the mass mobilization of a nation through indoctrination, physical education, discipline and family policy (such as eugenics).[4][5] This state is led by a supreme leader who exercises a dictatorship over the fascist movement, the government and other state institutions.[6] Fascist governments forbid and suppress opposition.[7]

Fascism promotes political violence and war as actions that create national regeneration, spirit and vitality.[4][8] It views violence as a fact of life that is a necessary means to achieve human progress.[9] It exalts militarism as providing positive transformation in society and providing spiritual renovation, education, instilling of a will to dominate in people’s character and creating national comradeship through military service.[10] Fascists commonly utilize paramilitary organizations for violent attacks on opponents or to overthrow a political system.[11]

Fascism opposes class-based identity and society, it is thus both anti-bourgeois and anti-proletarian; and individualist based identity and society.[12] It is opposed to many ideologies, including conservatism, liberalism, and two major forms of socialism: communism and social democracy.[13] It opposes a variety of economic, political and social systems, it is opposed to democracy, parliamentary systems, is anti-clerical, and holds a distinctive opposition to capitalism.[14] It rejects egalitarianism, materialism, and rationalism in favour of action, discipline, hierarchy, spirit and will.[15]

In economics, fascists oppose economic liberalism (as a bourgeois movement) and Marxism (as a proletarian movement) for being class-based movements.[16] Fascists present their ideology as that of an economically trans-class movement that advocates resolving economic class conflict to secure national solidarity.[17] Fascists advocate: a state-directed, regulated economy that is dedicated to the nation; the use and primacy of regulated private property and private enterprise contingent upon service to the nation or state; the use of state enterprise where private enterprise is failing or is inefficient; and autarky.[3] They are hostile to finance capitalism, plutocracy, the “power of money”, and internationalist economics.[3]

Fascism was founded during World War I by Italian national syndicalists who combined left-wing and right-wing political views, but Italian fascism gravitated to the right in the early 1920s.[18][19] Italian Fascists described fascism as a right-wing ideology in the political program The Doctrine of Fascism: “We are free to believe that this is the century of authority, a century tending to the ‘right,’ a fascist century.”[20][21] However they also officially declared that although they were “sitting on the right” they were generally indifferent to their position on the left-right spectrum, as being a conclusion of their combination of views rather than an objective, and considering it insignificant to their basis of their views that they claimed could just as easily be associated with “the mountain of the center” as with the right.[22] There is a running dispute among scholars about where along the left/right spectrum that fascism resides.[23][24][25][26] …”

“…The Coming Insurrection is a insurrectionary anarchist work that hypothesizes the “imminent collapse of capitalist culture”.[1] Written by The Invisible Committee, an anonymous group of contributors (attributed to the Tarnac Nine by the French police), the book was first published in 2007 by French company La Fabrique. 

The book is divided into two parts. The first attempts a complete diagnosis of the totality of modern capitalist civilization, moving through what the Invisible Committee identify as the “seven circles” of alienation: “self, social relations, work, the economy, urbanity, the environment, and to close civilization”.[2] The latter part of the book begins to offer a prescription for revolutionary struggle based on the formation of communes, or affinity group-style units, in an underground network that will build its forces outside of mainstream politics, and attack in moments of crisis – political, social, environmental – to push towards anti-capitalist revolution. The insurrection envisioned by the Invisible Commmittee will revolve around “the local appropriation of power by the people, of the physical blocking of the economy and of the annihilation of police forces”.[3] 

The book points to the late 2000s financial crisis, and environmental degradation as symptoms of capitalism’s decline. Also discussed are the Argentine economic crisis (1999-2002) and the piquetero movement which emerged from it, the 2005 riots and 2006 student protests in France, the 2006 Oaxaca protests and the grassroots relief work in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina as examples of breakdown in the modern social order which can give rise to partial insurrectionary situations. …”

The Coming Insurrection
The Invisible Committee
 

“…The Coming Insurrection is an eloquent call to arms arising from the recent waves of social contestation in France and Europe. Written by the anonymous Invisible Committee in the vein of Guy Debord—and with comparable elegance—it has been proclaimed a manual for terrorism by the French government (who recently arrested its alleged authors). One of its members more adequately described the group as “the name given to a collective voice bent on denouncing contemporary cynicism and reality.” The Coming Insurrection is a strategic prescription for an emergent war-machine to “spread anarchy and live communism.” 

Written in the wake of the riots that erupted throughout the Paris suburbs in the fall of 2005 and presaging more recent riots and general strikes in France and Greece, The Coming Insurrection articulates a rejection of the official Left and its reformist agenda, aligning itself instead with the younger, wilder forms of resistance that have emerged in Europe around recent struggles against immigration control and the “war on terror.” …”

Alex Warns of Feds Preparing to use Anarchists To Provoke Tea Party Violence on Alex Jones Tv


“…Paul Joseph Watson
http://www.prisonplanet.com/
http://www.infowars.com/
Friday, April 2, 2010 

Given the past history of how so-called anarchist groups are so easily infiltrated and provocateured by the authorities to commit meaningless acts of violence that only serve to discredit political causes, we should be alarmed by the possibility that anarchist plans to crash the tea parties will present the perfect opportunity for the establishment to create a flashpoint with which to demonize constitutionalists as unruly extremists. 

According to leading anarchist website Infoshop News, On April 15th thousands of right-wingers will attend rallies in cities and towns across the United States. The organizers of this nationwide day of protest call it a tea party. This tea party movement that emerged only a year ago is a coalition of conservatives, anti-Semites, fascists, libertarians, racists, constitutionalists, militia men, gun freaks, homophobes, Ron Paul supporters, Alex Jones conspiracy types and American flag wavers. (Emphasis added). 

In one paragraph, the so-called anarchists have regurgitated wholesale the exact same rhetoric that the corporate-owned media, their supposed adversaries, have been spewing ceaselessly for months on end that anyone who opposes big government (which is what anarchists are supposed to do), is a racist and an extremist, while also lying about the origins of the Tea Party which in fact was started by Ron Paul supporters as early as 2007. 

The anarchists primary reason for wanting to crash Tea Party demonstrations, because If the tea party movement takes over this country they will really hurt poor people by getting rid of social programs like food stamps, unemployment benefits, disability benefits, student aid, free health care, etc, is completely at odds with the traditional anarchist political doctrine of extremely limited or no government whatsoever. 

As Kurt Nimmo points out, these people are not anarchists at all, they are statists, teenage socialist punks who like to call themselves workers but a good portion of whom have probably never worked a day in their life. They make for perfect puppets through which the establishment can manipulate to demonize its real political adversaries. 

Apparently the bizarro world of corporate media dominated political propaganda has infected the anarchists (at least the Infoshop variety) who now sound like Democrats. Once upon a time, anarchism was a political philosophy that stood in opposition to government. 

The term anarchism derives from the Greek anarchos, meaning without rulers. But apparently the Infoshop strain of anarchist has deviated from the original definition — they now appear to be indistinguishable from state-loving progressives who also consider Libertarian Tea Party activists anti-Semites, fascists, libertarians, racists, constitutionalists, militia men, gun freaks, homophobes, Ron Paul supporters, Alex Jones conspiracy types and American flag wavers. 

Note the pairing of fascists and libertarians in the above. Libertarians are the polar opposite of fascists. All within the state, nothing outside the state, nothing against the state, said the grand daddy of fascism, Benito Mussolini. Does this sound like Libertarianism? 

Anarchists were at the front in the battle against fascism in Spain. Italian anarchists played a key role in the anti-fascist organization Arditi del Popolo that went up against Mussolinis Blackshirts. But that was then and this is now. Now so-called anarchists specialize in making anti-war demonstrations look like a re-run of the Days of Rage in 1969. Anarchists think they are fighting the state by smashing windows at McDonalds and providing the corporate media with scary images of black-clad youths trashing bank lobbies. 

As we have constantly warned, the latter half of April represents the most dangerous time period for when we can expect violence to be staged or provocateured which will instantly be blamed on tea partiers, libertarians and constitutionalists.

V for Vendetta

“…V for Vendetta is a ten-issue comic-book series written by Alan Moore and illustrated mostly by David Lloyd, set in a dystopian future United Kingdom imagined from the 1980s about the 1990s. A mysterious revolutionary who calls himself “V” works to destroy the totalitarian government, profoundly affecting the people he encounters.  

The series depicts a near-future Britain after a limited nuclear war, which has left much of the world destroyed. In this future, a fascist party called “Norsefire” has arisen as the ruling power. “V”, an anarchist revolutionary dressed in a Guy Fawkes mask, begins an elaborate, violent, and theatrical campaign to bring down the government. Warner Bros. released a film adaptation in 2005. …”

V for Vendetta: Comic vs. Film

Was Alan Moore right to disassociate himself from the movie?

“…Both film and comic book feature a fascist government that seized power after a devastating war. Once in power, the government began rounding up those who were “different.” That means anyone who isn’t a white, Christian heterosexual. In both mediums, the gathered were sent without due process to camps, where they were eventually executed.  

The film uses some modern-day references, so that viewers won’t miss the Wachowskis attempts to draw parallels to the US’ various military holding facilities, such as the terrorist prison at Guantanamo Bay. When you are taken away — either for being different or speaking out against the government — a black bag is thrown over your head and you are essentially erased from the world. The black bags are specific to the movie and are quite chilling, recreating the familiar image of some infamous US internment photos. …” http://comics.ign.com/articles/696/696867p1.html  

V for Vendetta (2006)

Reviewed by Owen Gleiberman |

“…In V for Vendetta, the United States, reeling from a misguided war of dominion, has ceded the centrality of its global power back to Britain, whose ruler, Chancellor Sutler (John Hurt), looms Big Brother-like on oversize video screens, backed by a flag done in neo-Nazi red and black. (Can you say, bad guy?) As his scowling backup minister plots in the shadows (can you say, Dick Cheney?), the anchorpeople on the British Television Network report what the government tells them to, as the populace — a nation of couch potatoes — drink in the media lies that no one pretends to believe. Citizens are covered in hoods and subjected to torture (Abu Ghraib, anyone?), and if that doesn’t sound overheated enough, there’s a priest with a taste for young flesh, a popular bushy-browed TV demagogue who’s like Bill O’Reilly crossed with Nixon, and a pointed allusion to Timothy McVeigh’s homemade fertilizer bomb. Did I mention that the hero is an apocalyptic terrorist?  

Known as V, he first shows up, all cutthroat eloquence and whirling, flying blades, like a merry-prankster Zorro, just in time to save the innocent Evey (Natalie Portman) from arrest — or worse — by state policemen. Dressed in black, with a cape, shiny gloves, and squared-off cap, plus a wig of flowing ebony hair that wouldn’t look out of place on Bettie Page, V wears a mask that he never takes off — a grinning ceramic visage of Guy Fawkes, the 17th-century British anarchist hero, with pink cheeks and eyebrows raised in delight. It’s like a Halloween mask of the Joker, but when this joker speaks, the words flow out in a velvety aristocratic purr — a gush of moral indignation. V, played sensationally by Hugo Weaving, is a droll and charming devil-doll. He’s also a bit twee, given to soaring flights of alliteration and a few too many Shakespeare quotes. …” http://www.ew.com/ew/article/0,,1173457,00.html

“…Thomas James DiLorenzo (born 1954) is an American economics professor at Loyola University Maryland[1]. He is an adherent of the Austrian School of Economics. He is a senior faculty member of the Ludwig von Mises Institute and an affiliated scholar of the League of the South Institute, the research arm of the League of the South,[2] and the Abbeville Institute.[3] He holds a Ph.D. in Economics from Virginia Tech[1].

DiLorenzo has authored at least ten books, including The Real Lincoln: A New Look at Abraham Lincoln, His Agenda, and an Unnecessary War, Hamilton’s Curse: How Jefferson’s Arch Enemy Betrayed the American Revolution–and What It Means for Americans Today, How Capitalism Saved America: The Untold History of Our Country, From the Pilgrims to the Present, and Lincoln Unmasked: What You’re Not Supposed To Know about Dishonest Abe. DiLorenzo has spoken out in favor of the secession of the Confederate States of America, defending its right to secede in a view similar to that of abolitionist Lysander Spooner. [4] He has also criticized the crediting of the New Deal for ending the Great Depression.[5]

DiLorenzo lectures widely, and is a frequent speaker at Mises Institute events. …”

Paul Gottfried

“…Paul Edward Gottfried (*1941) is the Raffensperger Professor of Humanities at Elizabethtown College in Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania, and a Guggenheim recipient. He is an adjunct scholar of the Ludwig von Mises Institute.

He is the author of numerous books and articles in several languages on intellectual history, paleoconservatism, ancient historiography, and political theory. Gottfried has also been a close friend of important political and intellectual figures: Richard Nixon, Pat Buchanan, John Lukacs, Christopher Lasch, Robert Nisbet, and Murray Rothbard. He is now writing his memoirs that will deal with his “encounters” with these and other personalities. He is a critic of the neoconservatives within the conservative movement and the Republican Party. Gottfried contributes frequent articles on conservative politics and has written about Jews who are critical of Zionism.

Much of his historical-theoretical contributions have sought to demonstrate the obsolescence of inherited political and ideological distinctions. This theme runs through his recent trilogy, which traces the rise and expansion of the democratic managerial state. His third book-length attempt to define Conservatism in America addresses the rise of “value conservatism” in a highly critical fashion. In this work, he contends that tradition arises from the practices of inter-generational communities and has nothing to do with the hawking of privileged values by talk show hosts and journalists. Gottfried has often portrayed culture and morality in contemporary Western societies as reflections of the reach of the current political administration. He has focused on the democratic welfare state as a force of change because of its power to recode social behavior and to break down communities. He focuses especially on social engineering occurring with popular consent, and the advance of democratic pluralism.

Gottfried’s political columns have been generally critical of neoconservatives, whom he associates with “global democratic idolatry” and “irresponsible name-calling”. Gottfried has also accused particular neoconservatives of having kept him in 1987 from a graduate professorship at The Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C.. Moreover, he has made references to this ominous intervention in commentaries dealing with academic freedom. He has also voiced doubts about the possibility of maintaining free institutions with the “self-obliteration” of the bourgeois society that created them. He has made no secret of his cultural and social pessimism, a trait, he has observed, that has become more acute the more he reflects on the course of Western societies during his lifetime. [1][2]

Barack Obama’s Favorite Economist–John Maynard Keynes–A Great Guy?

Posted on November 16, 2009. Filed under: Blogroll, Communications, Economics, Employment, Fiscal Policy, government spending, Investments, Law, liberty, Life, Links, Monetary Policy, People, Philosophy, Politics, Rants, Raves, Resources, Taxes, Video, Wisdom | Tags: , , , , , , , , |

Listening to the late Murray Rothbard lecture on John Maynard Keynes, I was struck by how both Barack Obama and Maynard Keynes are very similiar.

The arrogance, habitual lying, changing positions on issues on a dime, use of strawmen arguments, elitism, will to power, and ego mania describe both Keynes and Obama.

Both also share an admiration of fascism, communism and government management of the economy.

Outside of that they are great guys.

David Horowitz

“…David Joel Horowitz (born January 10, 1939) is an American conservative writer and activist. The son of two life-long members of the Communist Party, and a former supporter of Marxism as well as a former member of the New Left in the 1960s, Horowitz later renounced his “left-wing political radicalism” and became an advocate for conservatism.

He is a founder of the David Horowitz Freedom Center (formerly the Center for the Study of Popular Culture), and has served as president of that organization for many years. He is the editor of the conservative website FrontPage Magazine, and his writings can be read on news sites and publications, including the conservative magazine NewsMax.[1] He founded the activist group Students for Academic Freedom. …”

David Horowitz Freedom Center

“…The David Horowitz Freedom Center is a conservative foundation founded in 1988 by political activist David Horowitz and his long-time collaborator, co-author, and friend, Peter Collier. It was established with funding from conservative philanthropies, such as the Olin Foundation the Bradley Foundation and the Sarah Scaife Foundation.[1]

…”

“…The Center has the following ongoing programs.[5]

  • FrontPage Magazine — an online “conservative” political magazine and website, edited by Horowitz, that is the successor to Heterodoxy (see below). Its main focus is on issues pertaining to foreign policy, war, and terrorism.
  • Discover the Networks (previously, and still often referred to as, “Discover the Network”) – A database of what it describes as organizations and “activists for leftwing agendas and causes — egalitarians, socialists, and opponents of American ‘imperialism'”,[6] with a Java applet to display their interconnections in graphic form.[7]This description can include Jihadists, “anti-American” strains of anti-Iraq War activists, etc. After two years of development, went online in February, 2005, with a staff of two at a cost of about $500,000. [8]
  • Students for Academic Freedom– claims chapters on 150 campuses. Opposes “indoctrination”.[9]
  • Wednesday Morning Club – In 2006 the Center held twenty-one Wednesday Morning Club events with speakers ranging from former Speaker Newt Gingrich, Victor Davis Hanson, Wafa Sultan, General Georges Sada,Judge Charles W. Pickering, Dennis Prager, Shelby Steele and Melanie Morgan with Catherine Moy. Speakers in 2007 include Dinesh D’Souza, Dore Gold, Bruce Herschensohn and John O’Sullivan. In previous years speakers have included then-Governor George W. Bush (1999), then-Secretary of Defense Dick Cheney, Robert Bork, Representatives Tom DeLay and Henry Hyde, Senators Trent Lott, Bill Frist and Joseph Lieberman, Christopher Hitchens, Bill Kristol, Fred Barnes and George Will.[10]
  • Jihad Watch (or Jihadwatch; also Dhimmi Watch) – blogs and articles attacking Islam.[11]
  • The Individual Rights Foundation – Organization of lawyers to fight speech codes and political correctness on campuses and elsewhere. Participated as Amicus Curiae in Boy Scouts of America v. Dale, the successful defense of the Boy Scouts of America against the ACLU in the Supreme Court. [12][13]
  • Libertas – A forum for promoting conservative films in Hollywood. It presents the conservative Liberty Film Festival.[14][3]
  • Restoration Weekend – Annual conservative fundraising and networking event. …”

American Progressive Liberal Fascism–The Wave of The Future Or Back To Past Mistakes?

“Progress, far from consisting in change, depends on retentiveness. When change is absolute there remains no being to improve and no direction is set for possible improvement: and when experience is not retained, as among savages, infancy is perpetual. Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it. In the first stage of life the mind is frivolous and easily distracted, it misses progress by failing in consecutiveness and persistence. This is the condition of children and barbarians, in which instinct has learned nothing from experience.”

~George Santayana, The Life of Reason, Volume 1, 1905

“The progressives who today masquerade as liberals may rant against fascism; yet it is their policy that paves the way for Hitlerism.”

~Ludwig von Mises, Interventionism, page 88.

Progressive Era

“…The Progressive Era in the United States was a period of reform which lasted from the 1890s to the 1920s.[1]

Responding to the changes brought about by industrialization, [2] the Progressives advocated a wide range of economic, political, social, and moral reforms.[3] Initially the movement was successful at local level, and then it progressed to state and gradually national. Both the reformers and their opponents were predominantly members of the middle class.

Significant changes achieved at the national levels included the income tax with the Sixteenth Amendment, direct election of Senators with the Seventeenth Amendment, Prohibition with the Eighteenth Amendment, and women’s suffrage through the Nineteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

Muckrakers were journalists who exposed waste, corruption, and scandal in the highly influential new medium of national magazines, such as McClure’s. Progressives shared a common belief in the ability of science, technology and disinterested expertise to identify problems and come up with the best solution.

Progressives moved to enable the citizenry to rule more directly and circumvent political bosses; California, Wisconsin, and Oregon took the lead.[4] California governor Hiram Johnson established the initiative, referendum, and recall, viewing them as good influences for citizen participation against the historic influence of large corporations on state assembly.[5] About 16 states began using primary elections. Many cities set up municipal reference bureaus to study the budgets and administrative structures of local governments. In Illinois, Governor Frank Lowden undertook a major reorganization of state government.[6] In Wisconsin, the stronghold of Robert LaFollette, the Wisconsin Idea, used the state university as the source of ideas and expertise.[7] Characteristics of progressivism included a favorable attitude toward urban-industrial society, belief in mankind’s ability to improve the environment and conditions of life, belief in obligation to intervene in economic and social affairs, and a belief in the ability of experts and in efficiency of government intervention.

In the Gilded Age (late 19th century) the parties were reluctant to involve the federal government too heavily in the private sector, except in the area of railroads and tariffs. In general, they accepted the concept of laissez-faire, a doctrine opposing government interference in the economy except to maintain law and order. This attitude started to change during the depression of the 1890s when small business, farm, and labour movements began asking the government to intercede on their behalf.[8]

By the turn of the century, a middle class had developed that was leery of both the business elite and the radical political movements of farmers and laborers in the Midwest and West. Known as Progressives, these people favored government regulation of business practices to, in their minds, ensure competition and free enterprise. Congress enacted a law regulating railroads in 1887 (the Interstate Commerce Act), and one preventing large firms from controlling a single industry in 1890 (the Sherman Antitrust Act). These laws were not rigorously enforced, however, until the years between 1900 and 1920, when Republican President Theodore Roosevelt (1901–1909), Democratic President Woodrow Wilson (1913–1921), and others sympathetic to the views of the Progressives came to power. Many of today’s U.S. regulatory agencies were created during these years, including the Interstate Commerce Commission and the Federal Trade Commission. Muckrakers were journalists who encouraged readers to demand more regulation of business. Upton Sinclair’s The Jungle (1906) showed America the horrors of the Chicago Union Stock Yards, a giant complex of meat processing that developed in the 1870s. The federal government responded to Sinclair’s book with the new regulatory Food and Drug Administration. Ida M. Tarbell wrote a series of articles against the Standard Oil monopoly. The series helped pave the way for the breakup of the monopoly.[9]

When Democrat Woodrow Wilson was elected President with a Democratic Congress in 1912 he implemented a series of progressive policies. In 1913, the Sixteenth Amendment was ratified, and the income tax was instituted in the United States. Wilson resolved the longstanding debates over tariffs and antitrust, and created the Federal Reserve, a complex business-government partnership that to this day dominates the financial world.

In 1913, Henry Ford, adopted the moving assembly line, with each worker doing one simple task in the production of automobiles. Taking his cue from developments during the progressive era, Ford offered a very generous wage—$5 a day—to his workers, arguing that a mass production enterprise could not survive if average workers could not buy the goods. However, the wage increase did not extend to women, and Ford expanded the company’s Sociological Department to monitor his workers and ensure that they did not spend their new found bounty on “vice and cheap thrills.”[10]

How Progressives Rewrote the Constitution

By Richard A. Epstein

“…How Progressives Rewrote the Constitution explores the fundamental shift in political and economic thought of the Progressive Era and how the Supreme Court was used to transform the Constitution into one that reflected the ideas of their own time, while undermining America’s founding principles.

Epstein examines key decisions to demonstrate how Progressives attacked much of the legal precedent and eventually weakened the Court’s thinking concerning limited federal powers and the protection of individual rights. Progressives on the Court undermined basic economic principles of freedom and competition, paving the way for the modern redistributive and regulatory state.

As Epstein writes, the Progressives, “were determined that their vision of the managed economy should take precedent in all areas of life. Although they purported to have great sophistication on economic and social matters, their understanding was primitive. The Progressives and their modern defenders have to live with the stark truth that the noblest innovations of the Progressive Era were its greatest failures.”

How Progressives Rewrote the Constitution shows that our modern “constitutional law,” fashioned largely by the New Deal Court in the late 1930s, has its roots in Progressivism, not in our country’s founding principles, and how so many of those ideas, however discredited by more recent economic thought, still shape the Court’s decisions. …”

I only wish one or more bank executives would go public and demand the Federal Government take back their TARP money that many banks were extorted or forced to take in the first place.

Tell the Federal Government to take a hike and give the money back to the American taxpayers.

Looks like the politicians and bureaucrats of both political parties just wanted the bankers to shutup.

The REAL REASON For The Bailout (Hint: FOREIGNERS)

 

The Potential End Of America’s Government

 

United States government debt

The United States government debt, commonly called the “public debt” or the “national debt“, is the amount of money owed by the federal government of the United States to holders of U.S. debt instruments. Debt held by the public is all federal debt held by states, corporations, individuals, and foreign governments, but does not include intragovernmental debt obligations or debt held in the Social Security Trust Fund. Types of securities held by the public include, but are not limited to, Treasury Bills, Notes, Bonds, TIPS, United States Savings Bonds, and State and Local Government Series securities.[1]

As of March 16, 2009, the total U.S. federal debt was $11,042,553,971,450.47,[2] or about $36,314 per capita. Of this amount, debt held by the public was roughly $6.74 trillion.[3] In 2007, the public debt was 36.8 percent of GDP,[4] with a total debt of 65.5 percent of GDP.[5] The CIA Factbook ranked the total percentage as 22nd in the world.[6]

Public debt is the amount owed by the government to its creditors, whether they are nationals or foreigners. External debt is the debt of all sectors of the economy (public and private), owed to foreigners. In the U.S., foreign ownership of the public debt is a significant part of the nation’s external debt. The Bureau of the Public Debt, a division of the Department of the Treasury, calculates the amount of money owed by the national government on a daily basis.[7][8][9][10]

 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_public_debt

 

Bankers: Take your TARP money back
Some banks say the government’s stabilization plan is actually weighing them down.

“…”Things have changed since TARP was announced. The rules have changed,” said Michael McMullan, CEO of the Bank of Florida, who withdrew his application for TARP funds Thursday. “We’re going to need to attract and retain key revenue drivers and great bankers.”

“The more restrictions that we are placed under from the Government, the less value we can deliver to our shareholders in the long run,” said McMullan.

Iberiabank in Louisiana, California’s Bank of Marin, and TCF Financial in Minnesota confirm to CNN Money that they are asking Treasury to take back their TARP funds.

“What these bank managers are saying is – listen, I want the Government out of my backyard, and I just want to give back the TARP, and I want to run my company by myself,” said Paul Miller, Financial Services Analyst at FBR Capital.

Goldman Sachs (GS, Fortune 500), Bank of New York/Mellon (BK, Fortune 500), Wells Fargo (WFC, Fortune 500), JP Morgan Chase (JPM, Fortune 500) and Bank of America (BAC, Fortune 500) – all ‘mega-banks’ that the government forced to take bailout money – say they want to return taxpayer funds “as soon as practical.” …”

http://money.cnn.com/2009/03/27/news/economy/tarp_takeback/

 

Iberiabank, Signature Among First to Redeem U.S. TARP

“…Iberiabank, the first to apply to return the money, redeemed the shares for $90 million, will record a $2.2 million first-quarter charge and a $1.1 million dividend tied to the capital, the Lafayette, Louisiana-based lender said in a statement today. Old National said it redeemed $100 million, Signature Bank bought back $120 million and Bank of Marin paid $28 million.  

The lenders are the first to redeem investments in the U.S. Treasury’s Troubled Asset Relief Program. Signature and Iberiabank had said they wanted to repay to escape limits associated with accepting the aid. The Federal Reserve has urged banks receiving bailout funds to reconsider dividends, and President Barack Obama’s administration has limited bonuses for senior executives and the next 20 most highly paid employees at companies receiving more than $500 million in TARP funds.

A February revision to the bailout as part of a federal stimulus package “adversely affected our business model and it became apparent that we should return these funds to the Treasury,” Signature Chief Executive Officer Joseph DePaolo said today in a statement.

Old National performed a “rigorous stress test” comparable with the examinations required by the U.S. Treasury, before deciding to return its TARP funds, the Evansville, Indiana-based company said in a statement. Corte Madera, California-based Bank of Marin repurchased the TARP preferred shares and paid $178,888.89 in dividends to the Treasury. …”

Banks are now eager to repay TARP

Many that have taken government money are dismayed by changing rules and public outrage.

By Christina Rexrode

“…For relatively strong banks, doing business with the government may be more trouble than it’s worth.

Banks are publicly declaring their intent to pay back loans from the Troubled Asset Relief Program, or TARP, as quickly as they can. They range from Charlotte-based Bank of America Corp., which is the country’s biggest bank, to tiny Iberiabank Corp. in Lafayette, La.

The banks complain about the rules that the U.S. Treasury keeps imposing on them retroactively, sometimes in ways that seem arbitrary or driven by constituents’ anger.

Some say they never needed the money but were cajoled into taking it by the Treasury, which wanted a show of industry support for its program.

Others say they’re dismayed by the public’s outrage toward banks that participate in TARP, which was originally touted as a reward of sorts for healthy banks.

To be sure, the government has always had regulatory power over the banks. But at the companies where it’s now a major shareholder, its grip is getting significantly tighter as it gets involved in decisions about everything from corporate jets to mortgage modifications. …”

http://www.charlotteobserver.com/business/story/622532.html

 

Suddenly, TARP money looks … bad; Update: Congress gets a clue

“…We heard a little at the beginning of the bank bailout that some were strongarmed into accepting TARP monies.  Wells Fargo reportedly was forced to take $5 billion.  Why?  The Obama administration and Treasury wanted to keep dissent from their strategy to a minimum, and seeding the industry on the widest possible scale helped demonstrate its necessity — and provided incentive for dissenters to keep their mouths shut.

Local bank TCF, run by William Cooper, had been vocal about its disillusion with the program.  Cooper had announced earlier that he wanted to give the money back, but Treasury has yet to create a payback mechanism.  Why not?  The TARP monies gave Geithner and Congress an opening to dictate compensation policies and lending practices to a much greater depth than prior regulation allowed.  They don’t want the money as much as they want the leverage to keep their fingers in the business operations at the banks. …”

Do not say you were not forewarned about Barack Obama and his radical socialism.

Many including me have blogged and discussed on talk radio the issues mentioned by Michael Savage, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, Bill Bennett,  Alan Keyes, and many many more.

The pump and dump drive-by mainstream media shut-up and said nothing about the radical socialism roots of Barack Obama.

The American people did not knowingly vote for a radical socialist.

Had the American people been informed about Obama’s roots and views they would never had voted for him.

Big media failed the American people and are no longer trusted.

Obama’s Radical Revolution:Its Alinsky Root and Global Vision

By Kyle-Anne Shiver

“…Saul Alinsky was the father of community organizing.  Before Alinsky devised his diabolical plan to bring the international socialist revolution to America — working within the very liberal and free system upon which the U.S. was founded — he was an older fellow traveler and advisor to student radicals of the 1960s.

Alinsky was a sort of father figure, to whom many radicals turned in the aftermath of the infamous DNC Convention of 1968 in Chicago.  His advice?
“Do one of three things.  One, go find a wailing wall and feel sorry for yourselves.  Two, go psycho and start bombing — but this will only swing people to the right.  Three, learn a lesson.  Go home, organize, build power and at the next convention, you be the delegates.” (emphasis in original)
  –
Saul Alinsky; Rules for Radicals; p. xxiii
Calm down.  Forget “burning the system down.”  Organize.  Organize.  Organize.  Work within the system.   Become the delegates. …” 

“…Obama did everything Alinsky prescribed.  He went to Chicago, home of Alinsky and the place where Davis had worked for the communist revolution.  Obama trained at the Industrial Areas Foundation, an Alinsky training institute.  He organized in Chicago and did voter registration and training for ACORN.   He went to law school.  He built political alliances.  He kept a tight lock on his records and his past.

As for Judeo/Christian morals.  Forget it.  Alinsky trained his radicals in the spirit of no-holds-barred methods.  In Alinsky’s mind, the American power structure was evil to its core and justified any means necessary to change the “world as it is” into the “world as it should be.”  Both Barack and Michelle Obama include these Alinsky code words in their speeches, and we should not mistake their meaning.  No means are out of bounds.
Many of these radical revolutionaries have already bombed and burned.  Lying, cheating and stealing are just more par for their revolutionary course.
Alinsky’s tenth rule of the ethics of means:  “You do what you can with what you have and clothe it with moral garments.”
“…Obama’s one piece of signature legislation in the Senate is the Global Poverty Act, aimed at curing what socialists deem as the root cause of all violence and war — poverty. 

 

Voters Beware: The Radical Rules of Saul Alinsky and Leftist Democrats

 

Barack Obama and the Strategy of Manufactured Crisis

By James Simpson

“…America waits with bated breath while Washington struggles to bring the U.S. economy back from the brink of disaster. But many of those same politicians caused the crisis, and if left to their own devices will do so again.

Despite the mass media news blackout, a series of books, talk radio and the blogosphere have managed to expose Barack Obama’s connections to his radical mentors — Weather Underground bombers William Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, Communist Party member Frank Marshall Davis and others. David Horowitz and his Discover the Networks.org have also contributed a wealth of information and have noted Obama’s radical connections since the beginning.
Yet, no one to my knowledge has yet connected all the dots between Barack Obama and the Radical Left. When seen together, the influences on Obama’s life comprise a who’s who of the radical leftist movement, and it becomes painfully apparent that not only is Obama a willing participant in that movement, he has spent most of his adult life deeply immersed in it.
But even this doesn’t fully describe the extreme nature of this candidate. He can be tied directly to a malevolent overarching strategy that has motivated many, if not all, of the most destructive radical leftist organizations in the United States since the 1960s. …”

Pattern Recognition: The Template Is Hitler’s Rise To Power Using National Socialism

When watching men of power in action it must be always kept in mind that, whether they know it or not, their main purpose is the elimination or neutralization of the independent individual–the independent voter, consumer, worker, owner, thinker–and that every device they employ aims at turning men into a manipulable “animated instrument” which is Aristotle’s defintion of a slave.

~Eric Hoffer

Hail Hitler, Hail Obama

 

Glenn Beck is one of few on television that is connecting the dots and asking where have I seen this pattern in history before?

Friday night I heard Michael Savage also connects the dots to the National Socialists in Germany.

Is it Woodrow Wilson, Franklin D. Roosevelt, progressives, liberals, and the Democratic Party in the United States or is it Adlolf Hitler and the National Socialists  in Germany in the 1930s?

Looks like Progressive Liberal Fascism is alive and well in  the United States.

Triumph des Willens (1935) – Triumph of the Will

Triumph of the Will (German: Triumph des Willens) is a propaganda film made by Leni Riefenstahl. It chronicles the 1934 Nazi Party Congress in Nuremberg, which was attended by more than 700,000 Nazi supporters. The film contains excerpts from speeches given by various Nazi leaders at the Congress, including portions of speeches by Adolf Hitler, interspersed with footage of massed party members. Hitler commissioned the film and served as an unofficial executive producer; his name appears in the opening titles. The overriding theme of the film is the return of Germany as a great power, with Hitler as the True German Leader who will bring glory to the nation.

Triumph of the Will was released in 1935 and rapidly became one of the best-known examples of propaganda in film history. Riefenstahl’s techniques, such as moving cameras, the use of long focus lenses to create a distorted perspective, aerial photography, and revolutionary approach to the use of music and cinematography, have earned Triumph recognition as one of the greatest films in history. Riefenstahl won several awards, not only in Germany but also in the United States, France, Sweden, and other countries. The film was popular in the Third Reich and elsewhere, and has continued to influence movies, documentaries, and commercials to this day.

 

Hitler’s Rise to Power

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hitler’s_rise_to_power

 Hitler: The Rise of Evil” is a TV miniseries that aired in two parts in May 2003 on CBS, and was produced by Alliance Atlantis. The film explores Adolf Hitler’s rise and his early consolidation of power during the years after World War I and focuses closely on how the embittered, politically fragmented and economically buffeted German society after Word War I made that ascent possible. Also central to the plot is the influence that Ernst Hanfstaengl had on Hitler’s rise to power.
The subplot of this film follows the struggles of Fritz Gerlich, a German journalist who opposes the rising National Socialist German Workers Party. He is portrayed in the role of a martyr to fulfill the essence of the quotation attributed to Edmund Burke, which is displayed at the beginning and at the end of the film:

All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.

~Edmund Burke

Hitler – The Rise of Evil (Full Film)

Hitler – The Rise of, presents A unique slant, profiling the life of Adolf Hitler as a child and his rise through the ranks of the National German Workers’ Party prior to World War II.

Although many have critiqued it as historically inaccurate it is an intriguing look into the personage that was Hitler and with the editing of a fellow Nationalist (Whom made the film far more parallel to the real history) the film is now far more articulate in following the life and rise of Adolf Hitler.

Third Reich-The Rise

This program shows how Hitler and the Nazis came into power, the reasons behind it, and why the German people embraced Hitler the way they did. Apart from the other Nazi shows made in America, this one does not denounce Nazism. It just presents the facts as told by the people who were there.

Hitler in Colour( Nazi Rise to Power)

 

No one could make a greater mistake than he who did nothing because he could do only a little.

~Edmund Burke

The monstrous evils of the twentieth century have shown us that the greediest money grubbers are gentle doves compared with money-hating Lenin, Stalin, and Hitler, who in less than three decades killed or maimed nearly a hundred million men, women, and children and brought untold suffering to a large portion of mankind.

Triumph des Willens (Full movie – English subbed)

Triumph of the Will

Triumph of the Will (German: Triumph des Willens) is a propaganda film made by Leni Riefenstahl. It chronicles the 1934 Nazi Party Congress in Nuremberg. The film contains excerpts from speeches given by various Nazi leaders at the Congress, including portions of speeches by Adolf Hitler, interspersed with footage of massed party members. Hitler commissioned the film and served as an unofficial executive producer; his name appears in the opening titles. The overriding theme of the film is the return of Germany as a great power, with Hitler as the True German Leader who will bring glory to the nation.

Triumph of the Will was released in 1935 and rapidly became one of the better-known examples of propaganda in film history. Riefenstahl’s techniques, such as moving cameras, the use of telephoto lenses to create a distorted perspective, aerial photography, and revolutionary approach to the use of music and cinematography, have earned Triumph recognition as one of the greatest films in history. Riefenstahl won several awards, not only in Germany but also in the United States, France, Sweden, and other countries. The film was popular in the Third Reich[1] and elsewhere, and has continued to influence movies, documentaries, and commercials to this day.[2] …”

 

“…The film begins with a prologue, the only commentary in the film. The following text appears against a gray background: On 5 September 1934, …20 years after the outbreak of the World War… 16 years after the beginning of our suffering… 19 months after the beginning of the German renaissance… Adolf Hitler flew again to Nuremberg to review the columns of his faithful followers…

Day 1‘: The film opens with shots of the clouds above the city, and then moves through the clouds to float above the assembling masses below, with the intention of portraying beauty and majesty of the scene. The shadow of Hitler’s plane is visible as it passes over the tiny figures marching below,[3] accompanied by music from Richard Wagner’s Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg, which slowly turns into the Horst-Wessel-Lied. Upon arriving at the Nuremberg airport, Hitler emerges from his plane to thunderous applause and a cheering crowd. He is then driven into Nuremberg, through equally enthusiastic people, to his hotel where a night rally is later held.

Day 2‘: The second day begins with a montage of the attendees getting ready for the opening of the Reich Party Congress, and then footage of the top Nazi officials arriving at the Luitpold Arena. The film then cuts to the opening ceremony, where Rudolf Hess announces the start of the Congress. The camera then introduces much of the Nazi hierarchy and covers their opening speeches, including Joseph Goebbels, Alfred Rosenberg, Hans Frank, Fritz Todt, Robert Ley, and Julius Streicher. Then the film cuts to an outdoor rally for the Reichsarbeitsdienst (Labor Service), which is primarily a series of pseudo-military drills by men carrying shovels. This is also where Hitler gives his first speech on the merits of the Labor Service and praising them for their work in rebuilding Germany. The day then ends with a torchlight SA parade.

Day 3‘: The third day starts with a Hitler Youth rally on the parade ground. Again the camera covers the Nazi dignitaries arriving and the introduction of Hitler by Baldur von Schirach. Hitler then addresses the Youth, describing in militaristic terms how they must harden themselves and prepare for sacrifice. Everyone present then assembles for a military pass and review, featuring Wehrmacht cavalry and various armored vehicles. That night Hitler delivers another speech to low-ranking party officials by torchlight, commemorating the first year since the Nazis took power and declaring that the party and state are one entity.

Day 4‘: The fourth day is the climax of the film, where the most memorable of the imagery is presented. As the soundtrack plays themes from Wagner’s Götterdämmerung, Hitler, flanked by Heinrich Himmler and Viktor Lutze, walks through a long wide expanse with over 150,000 SA and SS troops standing at attention, to lay a wreath at a World War I Memorial. Hitler then reviews the parading SA and SS men, following which Hitler and Lutze deliver a speech where they discuss the Night of the Long Knives purge of the SA several months prior. Lutze reaffirms the SA’s loyalty to the regime, and Hitler absolves the SA of any crimes committed by Ernst Röhm. New party flags are consecrated by touching them to the “blood banner” (the same cloth flag said to have been carried by the fallen Nazis during the Beer Hall Putsch) and, following a final parade in front of the Nuremberg Frauenkirche, Hitler delivers his closing speech. In it he reaffirms the primacy of the Nazi Party in Germany, declaring, “All loyal Germans will become National Socialists. Only the best National Socialists are party comrades!” Hess then leads the assembled crowd in a final Sieg Heil salute for Hitler, marking the close of the party congress. The film fades to black as the entire crowd sings the “Horst-Wessel-Lied”. …”

THE TARP SONG “I Want Some Tarp” by Bill Zucker

 

UPDATE

More and more Federal government interventions and more and more bailouts–this is national socialism/fascism–not capitalism!

The cost to the American people will be unemployment rates of between 15% to 20% within two years and inflation rates of between 25% to 50% within four years.

Let the markets work!

Do not do business with any bank or business that needs or takes a bailout or capital from the Federal government.

 Always remember it was the Federal government insisting that banks make mortage loans to people they would not normally lend to that started this mess in the first place.

Obama: More Bank Failures Likely

The rush to getting the so-called stimulus bill through Congress with or without any Republican support was noticed by many commentors. 

Why?

Hang on to your wallets and watch the dollar depreciate some more.

The Treasury Secretary, Tim Geithner,  will be asking for between 2 to 3 trillion dollars for creation of either (1)  a “bad bank” to aggregate all those toxic investments or troubled assets to get them isolated from all US financial institutions so that lending can be rebooted or started again or more likely or (2) recapitalize the financial institution by investing money in exchange for preferred stock and warrants to be repaid sometime in the next five to ten years.

I agree with Eric, if a “bad bank” is what Secretary Geithner is going to recommend to Congress, just say no way pal.

Nobody is going to agree as the valuation or price for a troubled toxic asset.

Once was enough on the job training or OTJ for a Treasury Secretary.

Jim Rogers was right, why does anybody listen to Geithner?

No surprise there–the Chicago Way–pay for play.

Getting it right is more important than doing it fast.

When the new Treasury Secretary comes to Congress to report on TARP and then asks for another 2-3 trillion  ($2,000,000,000,000–$3,000,000,000,000) for additional authority to purchase toxic or troubled assets or recapitalize the financial institutions in trouble, the American People are going to go ballistic.

What the American political class does not understand is the American People are very mad and about to revolt.

The American people will stop calling and e-mailing their Representative, Senators, and President.

Instead the American people will start marching.

So what will the Treasury Secretary recommend.

Yes, you got it, back to Treasury Secretary Paulson’s second plan to recapitalize the banks.

Again, how much is this going to cost the American people for providing a capital infusion now to be paid back latter, say in five to ten years, if not sooner.

Stay tuned.

New Bank Bailout Could Cost $2 Trillion

By DEBORAH SOLOMON, DAVID ENRICH and JON HILSENRATH

“Government officials seeking to revamp the U.S. financial bailout have discussed spending another $1 trillion to $2 trillion to help restore banks to health, according to people familiar with the matter.

President Barack Obama’s new administration is wrestling with how to stem the continuing loss of confidence in the financial system, as it divides up the remaining $350 billion from the $700 billion Troubled Asset Relief Program launched last fall. The potential size of rescue efforts being discussed suggests the administration may need to ask Congress for more funds. Some of the remaining $350 billion of TARP funds has already been earmarked for other efforts, including aid to auto makers and to homeowners facing foreclosure.

The administration, which could announce its plans within days, hasn’t yet made a determination on the final shape of its new proposal, and the exact details could change. Among the issues officials are wrestling with: How to fix damaged financial institutions without ending up owning them.

The aim is to encourage banks to begin lending again and investors to put private capital back into financial institutions. The administration is expected to take a series of steps, including relieving banks of bad loans and distressed securities. The so-called “bad bank” that would buy these assets could be seeded with $100 billion to $200 billion from the TARP funds, with the rest of the money — as much as $1 trillion to $2 trillion — raised by selling government-backed debt or borrowing from the Federal Reserve. …”

Roubini Predicts U.S. Losses May Reach $3.6 Trillion (Update1)

“…U.S. financial losses from the credit crisis may reach $3.6 trillion, suggesting the banking system is “effectively insolvent,” said New York University Professor Nouriel Roubini, who predicted last year’s economic crisis.

“I’ve found that credit losses could peak at a level of $3.6 trillion for U.S. institutions, half of them by banks and broker dealers,” Roubini said at a conference in Dubai today. “If that’s true, it means the U.S. banking system is effectively insolvent because it starts with a capital of $1.4 trillion. This is a systemic banking crisis.”

Losses and writedowns at financial companies worldwide have risen to more than $1 trillion since the U.S. subprime mortgage market collapsed in 2007, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.

President Barack Obama will have to use as much as $1 trillion of public funds to shore up the capitalization of the banking sector, following the $350 billion injection by the Bush administration, Roubini told Bloomberg News. Congress last year approved a $700 billion rescue fund, of which half remains to be disbursed. …”

“In unveiling its bank-share purchase program, the Treasury Department required nine of the nation’s largest financial-services companies to sell a total of $125 billion in preferred stock to the government, and said an additional $125 billion in stock could be bought from other firms on a voluntary basis.

Good news: TARP II coming soon

posted at 12:35 pm on January 20, 2009 by Allahpundit

“…No, not the stimulus. Another monster bailout on top of the stimulus. If the timeline here is right, Team Barry could be asking for it by mid-February, which would mean the $700 billion in TARP I lasted … five months.

Ever get the feeling like we’re just buying time?

[P]ersons close to the situation in Congress told Politico that the deteriorating economic situation leaves little breathing room. Bank losses are up and auto sales down. A top Hill staffer predicted Obama could be forced to seek more money even before the President’s Day recess in mid-February.

If so, this would be a nightmare political scenario for the incoming administration, which has focused on using the next month to muscle through its economic recovery plan…

But Obama gets one honeymoon as a new president, and waiting is not without risks. Financial newspapers reflect a growing concern that the government must do more to buy up the bad investments that hang over financial markets; with more bad earnings reports due this week, there is sense that this is a crisis that can’t be avoided…

“Congress isn’t going to step up and say, ‘Hey, can we give away another $700 billion?’” said an aide to a second Democratic House member. “But there’s a growing sense among people who are really watching this closely, I think, that it is entirely possible, six months from now, maybe even less, the administration is going to come back and say, ‘We need more; we need … more of the same.’”

Timoth Geithner

Timothy Franz Geithner [pronounced /ˈgaɪtnər/] (born August 18, 1961) is the 75th and current United States Secretary of the Treasury, serving under U.S. President Barack Obama. He was previously the president of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and a tax chiseler.

Geithner will be directing the nation’s economic recovery from the worst financial crisis in three generations, a task that could define the first two years of Obama’s term. Specific duties include directing how $350 billion of already existing Wall Street bailout money is to be spent, then making the case to the United States Congress and the public if more is needed. In addition, Congress is working on an $825-billion economic recovery package that dedicates about two-thirds to new government spending and the rest to tax cuts. Geithner will be playing a big role in disbursing that money.[2]

Geithner’s nomination came under fire due to his failure to pay over $30,000 in taxes in the past. Geithner was able to receive Senate confirmation but he remains under deep criticism for not following the rules of the agency he now oversees.[3]

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timothy_F._Geithner 

 

Jim Rogers, Jr.

“James Beeland Rogers, Jr. (born October 19, 1942) is an American investor and financial commentator. He is co-founder, along with George Soros, of the Quantum Fund, and is a college professor, author, world traveler, economic commentator, and creator of the Rogers International Commodities Index (RICI).

Rogers, whose full name is James Beeland Rogers, Jr. was born in Wetumpka, Alabama. Rogers grew up in Demopolis, getting started in business at the age of five, picking up bottles at baseball games. He got his first job on Wall Street, at Dominick & Dominick, after graduating with a bachelor’s degree from Yale University in 1964. Rogers then acquired a second BA degree from Balliol College, Oxford University in 1966. After Oxford, Rogers returned to the U.S. and enlisted in the army for a few years.

In 1970, Rogers joined Arnhold & S. Bleichroeder, where he met George Soros. That same year, Rogers and Soros founded the Quantum Fund. During the following 10 years the portfolio gained 4200% while the S&P advanced about 47%.[1] It was one of the first truly international funds.

In 1980, Rogers decided to “retire”, and traveled on motorcycle through China. Since then, he has been a guest professor of finance at the Columbia University Graduate School of Business.

In 1989 and 1990, Rogers was the moderator of WCBS’ The Dreyfus Roundtable and FNN’s The Profit Motive with Jim Rogers. From 1990 to 1992, he traveled through China again, as well as around the world, on motorcycle, over 100,000 miles (160,000 km) across six continents, which was picked up in the Guinness Book of World Records.

Pay to Play

“Pay to Play, sometimes pay for play, is a phrase which has been used for a variety of situations in which money is exchanged for services or the privilege to engage (play) in certain activities. Some uses refer to illicit activities, such as the exchange of money for influence in politics, while others can be normal, even expected, practices. An example of the latter is the concept of No Pay No Play in auto insurance law: an uninsured driver is not permitted to recover money for property damage or bodily injury damages caused by an auto accident, even if the uninsured driver is not at fault, because the lack of pay into the system results in the revocation of the uninsured driver’s right to play when compensation is collected.

In politics, pay to play refers to a system, akin to payola in the music industry, by which one pays (or must pay) money in order to become a player. The common denominator of all forms of pay to play is that one must pay to “get in the game,” with the sports analogy frequently arising.[1]

Typically, the payer (an individual, business, or organization) makes campaign contributions to public officials, party officials, or parties themselves, and receives political or pecuniary benefit such as no-bid government contracts, influence over legislation,[2][3] political appointments or nominations,[4][5] special access[6] or other favors. The contributions, less frequently, may be to nonprofit or institutional entities,[7] or may take the form of some benefit to a third party, such as a family member of a governmental official.[8]

The phrase, almost always used in criticism, also refers to the increasing cost of elections and the “price of admission” to even run[9] and the concern “that one candidate can far outspend his opponents, essentially buying the election.”[10]

While the direct exchange of campaign contributions for contracts is the most visible form of Pay to Play, the greater concern is the central role of money in politics, and its skewing both the composition and the policies of government.[11][12] Thus, those who can pay the price of admission, such as to a $1000/plate dinner or $25,000 “breakout session,” gain access to power and/or its spoils, to the exclusion of those who cannot or will not pay: “giving certain people advantages that other[s] don’t have because they donated to your campaign.”[13] Good-government advocates consider this an outrage because “political fundraising should have no relationship to policy recommendations.”[14] Citizens for Responsible Ethics in Washington called the “Pay-to-Play Congress” one of the top 10 scandals of 2008.[15]

Incumbent candidates and their political organizations[16] are typically the greatest beneficiaries of Pay-to-Play. Both the Democratic and Republican parties have been criticized for the practice. Many seeking to ban or restrict the practice characterize pay-to-play as legalized corruption. …”

Webster Tarpley

“Webster Griffin Tarpley is an author, journalist, lecturer, and critic of US foreign and domestic policy. Tarpley maintains that the events of 9/11 were engineered by a rogue network of the military industrial complex and the CIA. His writings and speeches describe a model of false flag terror operations by a rogue network in the military/intelligence sector working with moles in the private sector and in corporate media, and locates such contemporary false flag operations in a historical context stretching back in the English speaking world to at least the “gunpowder plot” in England in 1605. …”

“In January 2008, Tarpley became one of the first critics to assert that Barack Obama is actually managed by right-wing powerbrokers. Tarpley claimed that a shift in power had taken place in the ruling class, with the Zbigniew Brzezinski faction and its presidential candidate Obama ascendant over the lame-duck neocons. The targets of US imperialism would now be Russia, China and its ally Pakistan, instead of Iraq, Iran and Syria. He developed these themes in his two books on Obama.

Tarpley is also a tough critic of free market, particularly the Austrian School and Chicago School economics [12]. …”

Spendulus Alert: $50 billion for “mandatory mortgage modifications”

By Michelle Malkin 

“I uploaded the entire Sellout Substitute Amendment championed by the Turncoat Caucus this weekend. Did you read through to the very end of the 778-page legislative text? Did your Senator? If you did, then you saw this: ….

 

“…Yes, you read that correctly. $50 billion more of your money made available to tax cheat/bailout failout architect Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner to force banks to do loan modifications with homeowners deep under water on their mortgages. That’s in addition to the $20 billion already allocated by the House last month for the same purposes.

Banks have been engaged in these “mo mod” programs over the past year. The Democrats want to accelerate the pace and use the power of government to essentially provide a blanket amnesty for borrowers and lenders who made bad financial decisions. Yes, I know there are many responsible borrowers out there having trouble negotiating loan modifications. I’ve heard from some of you. But this $50 billion giveaway to the banks — the brainchild of unscrupulous borrower Chris Dodd – is exactly the wrong way to go.  …”
