Obama Screws America, Democrats Screw the United States, American Jews Screw Israel…History never changes?
Iran and six world powers including the U.S. reached a deal (aka treaty) on Iran’s nuclear program. Obama thinks international trade is the business relationship between Washington (White House) and New York (Wall Street). Obama and his administration are tested and proven incompetent in international negotiations and even less in understanding the Middle East.
Who Stands to Gain the Most from This Deal with Iran…the industry is oil, of course. And, special interests in Washington and New York.
The only benefit of this deal is to Wall Street and a few privileged Western companies to have access to the oil of Iran…what a deal. It has nothing to do with Iran’s nuclear weapons.
The Iranians negotiated a deal where they gave up nothing…no concessions…not one iota…why should they not make this deal as they already have what they want including now the release of money and access to world markets. Score Iran…100 and Obama, Democrats, and American Jews…0.

Worthless Piece of Paper, like Chamberlain prior to World War II.
U.N. (aka United Nations) Value
Like ‘Tits on a Hog’, the UN cannot perform verifiable inspections and have no authority to change any behavior of Iran.
Iran Nuclear Negations
The Iran negotiations hit a last minute snag in Vienna. There were reports that U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif got into a shouting match behind closed doors. An aid had to interrupt the two diplomats to inform them that their argument could be heard by people on the other side of the doors.
Moreover, the top EU Foreign Policy official Federica Mogherini also got into a heated discussion with Zarif. She threatened to cut off the talks and Zarif shouted back, warning her to “never try to threaten the Iranians”. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov jumped in and added “nor the Russians”.
Iran gives up nothing and takes all…including $100 billion in cash…
The deal will require Iran to cut its stockpile of low-enriched uranium by 98% for the next 15 years, but nothing is mentioned about high-enriched uranium.
Foreign investment into Iran’s stock market alone is expected to be $1 billion in the first year after it opens up.
As for the wider Iranian economy, the World Bank expects an increase in foreign direct investment (FDI) from multinational corporations to reach $3 billion. That would be double the FDI of the 2012-2014 period, when sanctions were in effect.
Releases $150 billion in frozen assets sanctions on Iran’s oil exports will be lifted, up to $150 billion of assets will be unfrozen, and Iranian banks will be allowed back in to the international financial system. (FOX News)
U.S. to Award (aka bribes) Iran $11.9 billion through End of Nuke Talks
The Obama administration paid $490 million in cash assets … all he has to do now is provided computers (I forgot he already did) for the targeting packages. …. to the table and prolong this charade of Iran truly wanting to make a deal. ….. Netanyahu (aka Israel) need that money much more than Iran…
As part of the deal, Iran has agreed to cut its enriched uranium stockpile, which is a precursor to nuclear weapons but is also useful for nuclear power generation, by 98%, and to eliminate its uranium centrifuges, used to create more enriched uranium, by 66%.
In a statement early Tuesday morning, President Obama stepped to center stage of the Theater of the Absurd, saying…
“Today, because America negotiated from a position of strength and principle, we have stopped the spread of nuclear weapons in this region…Because of this deal, the international community will be able to verify that the Islamic Republic of Iran will not develop a nuclear weapon.” ‘Horse Hockey’
Of course, the deal has very strict limits on inspections. This means the U.S. and its allies may not be able to inspect certain sites in Iran that we think might be violating the terms of the deal.
Obama has caved in to Iran on 4 key provisions in Geneva. Result…instead of preventing Iran from developing nuclear weapons, this deal is going to effectively open the door for them by proposing to allow Iran to forbid inspections of their military bases.
No surprise visits are in the agreement. The UN inspectors will have to give prior notice.
Tehran only has to “submit a report” answering queries about previous efforts to build nuclear triggers or miniaturize nuclear warheads so they fit on top of a missile.
This is a “no-nukes” treaty into a “turn-off-the-centrifuges” treaty.
The treaty Obama’s negotiating merely requires Iran to switch off some of the high-speed centrifuges they have churning out bomb-grade enriched uranium. It does not require them to be disabled, sent abroad, or destroyed. Only switched off for 10 years.
Far from requiring the Iranians to dismantle their bomb-making factories, this deal legitimizes them. It explicitly allows Iran to build as many nukes as it wants after 10 years.
What is to keep the Iranians from secretly turning their centrifuges back on again?
The only real barrier to such cheating would be a robust, intrusive inspection regime by UN nuclear weapons experts. But Obama as you have seen has surrendered on that, too.
This is why Israel and Saudi Arabia, (who rarely agree on anything!) both insist Obama’s nuclear deal is a catastrophe.
His foreign policy has been a disaster. It was a disaster in Afghanistan, where the Taliban is taking back over and their main opposition is ISIS. It was a disaster in Libya, where he helped overthrow Qaddafi, and now has a much worse mess on his hands, especially with ISIS making widespread inroads. He has a disaster in Syria and Iraq, where ISIS has carved out a country larger than Italy. And he has a disaster in Egypt, where he backed the radical Muslim Brotherhood, which swore to destroy Israel soon after it came into power. Now, he is winding down his final term in office…which is when presidents start worrying about their place in history. Obama desperately needs this deal with Iran…as a “Nixon goes to China” moment…to try to salvage his reputation.
Saudi Arabia’s new King Salman remembers how Obama abandoned another key Mideast ally of America, Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, as the Arab Spring tore Egypt apart. So he knows he cannot possibly count on Obama to protect his kingdom.
Salman is also calling in favors from Pakistan. The Saudis almost single-handedly bank-rolled Pakistan’s Islamic bomb development in the 1970s. The Pakistanis were so grateful they actually named a city after the reigning Saudi monarch (Faisalabad).
Kuwait, Emirates, Qatar have mountains of cash…and are scared to death of Iran. North Korea has nukes and missiles for sale, and is desperate for cash. Even Egypt.
Cold War between America and Soviet Russia was an excuse to fund military spending and expand the U.S. military industrial complex. Mideast nuclear arms race is vastly more dangerous.
Obama’s Nuclear Deal (aka Treaty) with Iran will be the biggest disaster in history. Czeschin Report)
Obama-Democrat’s America Can you lie and escape the facts and data?
Magna Carta has just celebrated its eight hundredth anniversary and is alive and well. Magna Carta was written on a single page in at least 12 point text. The US Constitution was buried null and void in 2009 with executive orders.
The U.S. Economy Created 223,000 Jobs in June and the reported to the public Unemployment Rate fell to 5.3% (U-3 number drawing unemployment compensation). In fact, over the past two months employment was revised lower by a combined 60,000 jobs. However, this fictitious figure dropped because 432,000 people dropped out of the labor force making the labor force participation rate the lowest since 1977. (BLS Bureau of Labor Statistics)
The latest rise at $282,800 for new homes and $228,700 for existing homes supports rising housing prices. However, 1 out of 7 homeowners were delinquent or foreclosed on their mortgage; 4 out of 10 were upside down on their home equity; nearly 5 out of 10 were among the millions of unemployed who were out of work for over six months; and 7 out of 10 Americans were fearful of the future. (Davidson Research)
Imported Foods: $12 billion worth every month like fish, fruit, coffee, cheese and out of season vegetables are imported to the U.S. in vast quantities.
Apparel: 65% of U.S. clothing is imported, from China (37%), Vietnam (9.4%), Indonesia (7.2%) and Bangladesh (6.7%).
Footwear: Almost all of the shoes bought in the U.S. come from China, Vietnam, Indonesia and Mexico.
Furniture: 85% is imported.
Household appliances: 90% of white goods (washers, fridges, etc.) and consumer electronics are imported.
Automobiles: 80% of cars on U.S. roads come from Canada (31%), Japan (24%), Germany (16%) and Mexico (12%).
The year-over-year change in U.S. retail sales peaked way back in July 2011, and has been declining ever since.
U.S. consumer confidence, measured by the widely respected polls of the University of Michigan, remains well below its peak in 1999.
Quarterly U.S. GDP has been in declining mode since 1999 and this year’s first quarter GDP declined 0.7 percent.
U.S. industrial production has declined since June 2010, with factory orders plummeting for eight straight months including a 0.4 percent decline in April.
U.S. employment participation rate (U-6 actual unemployed in total workforce) is 62.9%, higher than the 1929-39 Depression.
U.S. company layoffs are actually up 13% year-over-year. While most organizations are cutting positions, they are not hiring new workers as part of a strategic overhaul or they are not bringing these positions back.
These economic figures support the fact that there is no inflation, but here is strong Deflation.
Gold has now broken support at the $1,180 level. Its next move, perhaps after a bounce or two: below $1,100.
Silver too is cracking, now dangerously positioned to fall below $14.50, then even lower.
Copper is starting to slide once again, falling to the $2.70 level, with lower prices ahead.
Platinum and palladium, both weak at the knees.
Oil, unable to get back above $65 a barrel, and now poised to move lower again. Natural gas, barely above multi-year lows.
The grain markets, all weak. Soybeans, sliding. Corn and wheat, ready to slide again from multi-month and multi-year highs.
Coffee, cocoa, sugar, all looking very weak.
As Deflation spreads worldwide helps explain the world wide condition of Government vs. People. If people cannot win against their own government then what good is the government?
Inflation is making a comeback is about as certain as Ethics in government is making a comeback.
Yet, interest rates all over the world are starting to rise and bond prices are sliding, most notably in Europe. But that does not mean inflation is coming back. Interest rates are rising and bond prices are falling because governments will not act responsibly and 1) lower taxes to provide more spending by the populace for ‘real’ economic stimulus, 2) decrease the size of government, 3) abolish senseless laws and regulations, 4) stop political military campaigns in areas where there is not a ‘Declared’ war, and 5) shut up and do nothing to let people live peaceful lives.
Countries in Debt to IMF (International Monetary Fund)
That final point is to recognize in time where the majority of populace begin to realize that Europe, Japan and the biggest debtor of them all, the U.S., are patently bankrupt and will never make good on their debts. And instead, governments will do everything they can to chase, track, tax, and seize wealth to help them keep their heads above water and float their balance sheets. Which is precisely why the socialist governments of this world especially Europe, Japan and the U.S. are all acting like they do.
Raising taxes, throughout Europe … a new proposed second hike in the sales tax in Japan … Obamacare here and behind the curtain in Washington, even more income tax hikes coming.
Spying on citizens … yes, it is still going on. To track your money, to tax it more, and not too far in the future, to nationalize and confiscate it.
Enacting extensive capital controls throughout Europe … where in France, for instance, you can no longer conduct any business in cash, and where you cannot take out of the bank more than 1,000 euros at a time. Similar controls exist now in Greece, Cyprus, Italy and even Spain.
Where economists like Harvard University’s Ken Rogoff and Citibank’s Willem Buiter … are traipsing the globe on behalf of governments to convince the populace that it is time to abolish cash and replace it with electronic currency.
And where governments … are now so wrought with troubles that financial repression of their people is not enough and instead, they are moving to distract them by playing games with other countries.
Hence, the rising tide of wars around the world, from terrorism to outright international conflict. Where just recently Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko warned his country to “prepare for a full-scale Russian invasion”. The Ukraine where the U.S. and Europe have no business.
The Ukraine is no more belongs to Europe and the US than the islands outside of Japan that have belonged to China for centuries. It is not their sovereignty.
Of deflationary contractions, people are protecting themselves by hoarding and burying wealth so much so that stock and commodity market trading volumes are less than half what they were in 2008 prior to Obama and the Democrat’s taking control. It is a deflationary warning to prepare for more deflation; or, inflation not recognizing that the real crisis is in government. (Weiss Research)
America’s health care system is just as unsustainable as our foreign policy and our monetary system. At some point, the financial and human costs of Obamacare will prove overwhelming and Congress will be forced to replace this system. Hopefully, before this happens, a critical mass of people will convince Congress to remove Obamacare with a private enterprise truly free-market health-care system.
By ruling for the government in the case of King v. Burwell, the Supreme Court once again made a ‘political’ ruling to defend Obamacare. In fact, popular support for Obamacare was rooted in the desire to address problems created by prior government interference in the health care marketplace.
While Obamacare may be safe from court challenges, it forces more Americans to pay higher insurance premiums while causing others to lose their insurance or lose access to the physicians of their choice, which was promised to the American people by Obama and the Democrats.
Now, opposition and dissatisfaction with Obamacare grows as additional Americans are turning against Obamacare as their employers reduce their hours, along with their paychecks, because of the Obamacare mandates. Obamacare and the Democrats are responsible for the high unemployment in America.
First Time in US History More Business Closing Than Openings
The U.S. now ranks not first, not second, not third, but 12th among developed nations in terms of business startup activity. Countries such as Hungary, Denmark, Finland, New Zealand, Sweden, Israel and Italy all have higher startup rates than America. It seems like a secret, never see it mentioned in the media, nor hear from a politician that, for the first time in 35 years, American business deaths now outnumber business births. The total number of new business startups and business closures per year and the birth and death rates of American companies have crossed for the first time since the measurement began. Employer businesses, those with one or more employees, have been in the past the real engines of economic growth. Now 400,000 new businesses are being born annually nationwide, while 470,000 per year are dying. Startups outpaced business failures by about 100,000 per year prior to 2009, since Obama and the Democrats took over the federal government.
Wall Street and the White House are two gigantic institutions of persuasion. The White House needs to keep you in the game because their political party needs your vote. Wall Street needs to keep you in the game because their stock portfolio needs your cash.
So both tell us, “The economy is coming back”. This is Dead-Wrong Thinking.
It is like asking students where milk comes from and they reply the grocery store. It is like asking Wall Street and the White House where jobs come from and they reply taxes and welfare. The answer to economic growth and ultimately job creation is and has always been more innovation, and the continuation to invest millions and billions in new enterprise. But an innovation is worthless until an entrepreneur creates a business from an innovative idea in something customers will buy.
Yet current thinking tells us we’re on the right track and don’t need different strategies, so we continue marching down the path of national decline, believing innovation will save us. When small and medium-sized businesses are dying faster than they are being born, so is free enterprise. And when free enterprise dies, America dies with it. Look at the numbers. You will often hear from otherwise credible sources that there are 26 million businesses in America. This is misleading; 20 million of these reported so called ‘businesses’ are inactive companies that have no sales, profits, customers or workers.
There are only 6 million businesses in the United States with one or more employees. Of those, 3.8 million have four or fewer employees, the mom and pop shops owned by people who are not building a business as much as they are building a life. And God bless them all. That is what America is for. We need every single one of them. Next, there are about a million companies with five to nine employees, 600,000 businesses with 10 to 19 employees, and 500,000 companies with 20 to 99 employees. There are 90,000 businesses with 100 to 499 employees. And there are just 18,000 with 500 employees or more, and that figure includes about a thousand companies with 10,000 employees or more. Altogether, that is America.
America’s Teachers are America’s most important assets. Teachers build intellectual development. America, Inc. is far more important to America’s security than our military. Because without the former prospering and solvent there is no latter.
We have enormous military power only because of our Teachers and growing economy that has, so far, made it possible for the government to pay its bills. Former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Adm. Mike Mullen, was asked in a Senate hearing on June 28, 2011, to name the biggest current threat to the security of the United States, he did not say al-Qaida or ISIS. He answered, “I believe our debt is the greatest threat to our national security”. Declining businesses mean declining revenues for building America. When new businesses are not being born, in any country, the free enterprise system and jobs decline. Period.
And without a growing free enterprise system, without a growing entrepreneurial economy, there are no new good jobs. That means declining revenues and smaller salaries to tax, followed by declining aid for the elderly and poor and declining funding for the military, for education, for infrastructure and declining revenues for everything. What any easy formula for single-handily destroying America, maybe even criminal intent.
This is the first time in America’s history that entrepreneurship is now in decline. (U.S. Census Bureau, U.S. Department of Census, Small Business Administration)
Furthermore, it is most interesting that every business that Obama has visited since entering office has filed for bankruptcy. (FOX News)
America’s Teachers Join the lowest paid profession, most disrespected profession, and most abused profession in America?
This statement is in support to repeal the Windfall Elimination Provision (WEP 1983) federal law allowing retired teachers to receive their earned Social Security (SS) benefits in addition to their TRS Teacher Retirement benefits. This way teachers are playing by the same rules as the White House Presidents, Members of Congress, Federal, State, County, City Employees, and Military Retirees.
If WEP is not repealed, then Social Security should become the only legal retirement benefits for all Americans. This way ALL Americans are playing by the same rules.
By making retroactive ILLEGAL ALL Government Retirement Programs for the White House Presidents, Members of Congress, Federal Employees, Military Retirees, State, County, City Government Retirement programs Social Security becomes the ONLY LEGAL ‘government’ retirement program in America.
This saves hundreds of millions of dollars in burdensome taxes on young adults due to the current ‘double dipping’ by congressional legislators who serve only one term, presidents who serve only one term, federal employees, military retirees, state legislators who serve only one term, county and city retirees. Now that is fair to pay those who make the greatest contribution to the country…America’s Teachers.
World Living Under Its Own Delusion Is this Censorship by Omission?
Data continues to support the ongoing Depression Cycle that started in 1971 and has accelerated under every government head of state since 1963.
U.S. Business Investment 50% of GDP in 1959
U.S. Business Investment 12.8% of GDP in 2012
U.S. GDP falls 0.7%
U.S. Corporate Profits fall 5.9%, biggest drop since 2008
U.S. Factory Orders Drop 6.0% in Sixth Consecutive Drop (FED- Federal Reserve)
HSBC Holdings Plc, Europe’s largest bank, is cutting 20,000 Jobs. (Chief Executive Officer Stuart Gulliver)
The top 20% in the U.S., who typically makes $100,000 plus, account for over 50% of consumer spending. They are the ones that have continued to spend since the Depression started in 1971— not the average household. The 20% own 90% of financial assets as it should be and is in every country.
Why? Because of education, work, and sacrifice. They tend to be more educated, meaning they go to school longer, as do their children.
The best recourse against incompetent governments and corrupt politicians is to be debt-free, 100% absolutely no debt and holding cash savings. There is no advantage to being a debt-slave to pay for political plunder.
Confidence in US government and America is lowest in history. When people realize the Great Lie that the world has been living in the Depression Cycle since 1971, not a Recession, hopefully they will stop living in an artifact of fiction. Obama‘s fake recovery, overstated by fraudulent data, covered up by the Democrat party, and brain washed the public by the controlled media is not only the slowest and weakest in US history, but non-existent. Buying time, delaying something as long as you can, is not being optimistic. The dimension of Time itself is outside the grasps of politicians and economic manipulations. Government interfering in the market is future plunder. Trashing the future is not evidence or fact. (Davidson Research)
Using the same research method accurately predicting the long-term crash in Japan and the greatest American and European boom in history, Harry Dent and his team of market analysts have identified a trend pinpointing the latest in the U.S. depression – and it seems we are already in the midst of it. Dent sees a steeper demographic downturn for Germany and many other European countries in the decade ahead than Japan had in the 1990s. (Dent Research)
The Washington Press Corps asserted that Barack ‘Hussein’ Obama was the closest to being a Jew of any President in history. Lie, Lie, Lie. Obama said it hurts being accused of being ant-sematic. Actions show his hate of Bibi and Israel as well as America before and during his reign. (FOX News)
Obama & Democrats and Republicans Masters of World War III Will war allow Obama and the Democrats to declare martial law and stay in office…forever?
The Masters of War at the self-described ‘Don’t Do Stupid Stuff’ Obama administration are now announcing on the ready to dispatch military aircraft and ships within 18 kilometers of seven islands China has built up in the Spratly Islands, which have historically belonged to China. Beijing’s response, ‘There Will be War’. “If the United States’ bottom line is that China has to halt its activities, then a U.S.-China war is inevitable in the South China Sea … The intensity of the conflict will be higher than what people usually think of as ‘friction’.” (Information Clearing House, GMA News, Global Times, Reuters)
Texas to Establish Bullion Depository for Sound Money Why did no one in Washington ever think of a sound money policy for the American people?
A bill taking a step towards gold and silver as commonly-used legal tender in Texas passed in the state Senate by an overwhelming 29-2 vote and previously passed the House by a vote of 140-1. The United States Constitution states in Article I, Section 10, “No State shall…make any Thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts”. Introduced by State Rep. Giovanni Capriglione (R- Southlake) and four co-sponsors on February 12, House Bill 483 (HB483) would create a state bullion depository. The legislation in Texas takes an important step towards that constitutional requirement, ignored for decades in every state. Such a measure would bring attention to the past monopoly of the Federal Reserve System by introducing sound money policy into the monetary system. (Austin Texas)
Uranium One…A Hedge Factor or the Clinton Legacy in History Why was Obama and his Secretary of State not looking out in the interest of the American people and the United States of America?
What lооks like is shaping up to be the rосkiest ever rасe fоr the Сlintоn’s’ newly minted presidential саmpаign amid questions аbоut passible соnfliсts of interest between the former Secretary of State, her family’s fоundаtiоn, former President Bill Сlintоn, and Russia.
Tаlking аbоut dоnаtiоns from a Саnаdiаn соmpаny that flowed to the Сlintоn Fоundаtiоn shortly after the Russians аnnоunсed their intention to асquire а majority stake in Uranium One, Mr. Сlintоn received $500,000 fоr а Mоsсоw speech from а Russian investment bank with links to the Kremlin that was promoting Uranium One stосk.
This proves at least, that Bill Сlintоn’s speaking fees tripled after Hillary Сlintоn beсаme Secretary of State. Аlоng with $750,000 Bill earned fоr addressing а teleсоm соnferenсe in Сhinа, which соntinues to raise serious questions аbоut Hillary Сlintоn’s judgment at a top government position.
The chairman of the Canadian company that profited from the sale, Ian Telfer, donated millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation, the charitable organization set up after Bill Clinton left the presidency – most of which was not reported publicly.
The founder of the company, Frank Giustra, also donated $31m (£20.5m) to the foundation and flew Mr Clinton to Kazakhstan in 2005, at a time when the nation was considering whether to grant uranium mining rights to Canadian company.
In 2010, at roughly the same time, the Russian company, Rosatom, was attempting to purchase the Canadian company, Mr Clinton travelled to Moscow and was paid $500,000 by a bank affiliated with Rosatom.
“Whether the donations played any role in the approval of the uranium deal is unknown,” Becker and McIntire write. “But the episode underscores the special ethical challenges presented by the Clinton Foundation, headed by a former president who relied heavily on foreign cash to accumulate $250m in assets even as his wife helped steer American foreign policy as secretary of state, presiding over decisions with the potential to benefit the foundation’s donors.”
Those ‘special ethical challenges’ were scrutinized in the Post piece, as well, which reveals more details about the vast sums of money in speaking fees Mr Clinton has amassed since his presidency ended in 2001.
Mr Clinton was paid “more than $100m for speeches between 2001 and 2013″, the Post notes, including ‘at least’ $26m by groups that also donated to the Clinton Foundation, such as financial firms often considered villains on the populist left, like Goldman Sachs and Citi Group.

Alliance Between Russia and Germany Why would Obama oppose Germany and Russia working together?
Russian President Vladimir Putin will hold talks with German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Moscow on May 10. “It’s true, we are expecting the German chancellor in Moscow on May 10. Merkel and Putin will hold talks in the Kremlin in ‘narrow’ and ‘expanded’ formats and also expected to hold a joint press conference on the result of the talks,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov.
Et Tu, John Maynard Keynes…Hail Ludwig von Mises When will government heads of state learn to read?
The United States government has become the greatest failure in history when it comes to money and finance of a country. The rejection of the lessons of history included a $700 billion Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP), $800 billion of fiscal stimulus, about $4 trillion of money printing, and 165 months of artificial rock-bottom interest rates.
The United Sates is still in the ‘Depression’ cycle that started on 15 August 1971 when the government left the gold standard of checks-and-balances on spending. This act has led the world into the greatest economic depression in history to the detriment of the peoples of every country. The government is the problem. The people are the solution if left to their own solution without excessive tax burdens and destroying the social contract. But, that is not human nature.
Government is necessary. Government provides structure, security, and safety to its people. Without people there is no government. Without government there is no structural protection for the people. The balance begins and ends with money. This is the line of equilibrium when crossed creates disequilibrium of the contract between government and people.
History teaches that ‘Markets’ are more powerful than ‘Governments’. The Austrian School of Economics ‘Capitalism’ has proven itself over 5,000 years of history. The Keynesian School of Economics ‘Socialism’ and ‘Communism’ has proven that it continuously destroys the peoples of any country. This is the current condition.
More Laws, More Taxes, Less Economy Why strangle the economy and not give businesses a chance to do it for themselves?
During Obama’s administration under the Democrat influenced House and controlled Senate, a record 21,000 new regulations on businesses were enacted the past seven years, most of them without Congressional approval.
Last year alone Obama issued regulations costing American taxpayers and businesses an estimated $762 million in regulatory costs per day. (American Action Forum)
In total, Obama’s administration has filled 468,500 pages in new regulations. (Federal Register)
Moreover, according to the Competitive Enterprise Institute, the president is poised to unleash another 2,375 new rules on American businesses this year, and again without first giving Congress an up or down vote. (Competitive Enterprise Institute)
Deflation, More Deflation, Coming Deflation Plunge
World economies are slowing, demand is falling, due to anemic growth in most corners of the globe. Oil was $91.40 end 2011, $88.66 end 2012, $98.42 end 2013, and $53.80 end 2014. Food Prices: Sugar has plunged from over 0.33 per pound in August 2011 to 0.1479 today (Feb. 3rd), a drop of 55 percent. Corn has plunged from $7.65 a bushel in August 2012 to $3.67 today, a drop of 52 percent. Wheat, from $12.29 in August 2010, to $5.00 a bushel today, a drop of 59 percent. Copper a drop of 50 percent in the last couple years. Iron ore drop of 40 percent last year.
The depression cycle does not seem to be responding to any amount of money printing, excessive regulation, and uncertainty.
White House Attack on Russia and Israel Moved Beyond the Boundary of the Absurd into the Realm of Insanity Is Obama so desperate to have a place in history?
Obama Declares War on Russia, North Korea and China is Next
For propaganda to work well, there needs to be tight coordination between the State and the press. The role of the press is to first publish the propaganda, and second, to neglect to look into it or report on anything that might call it into question. Sins of omission and commission are both required.
The good news is that the internet is a great equalizing force and we can readily unearth inconvenient facts with a little digging that blunt the propaganda. The bad news is that a lot of people still get all their news from so-called ‘official’ sources.
When central banks print reserves far in excess of domestic savings, the result is inevitably inflation. The U.S. has printed $4 trillion, more or less. Japan has printed similar amounts, as have the Europeans. This is monetary inflation on a massive scale – unprecedented outside of efforts to finance World War I and World War II. And yet, far from seeing any lasting increase to commodity prices and wages, we see collapsing profit margins, moribund unemployment figures, and even falling commodity prices of deflation.

A rift is emerging between the US and Israel, after Barack Obama’s administration hit out at Israeli leader Benjamin Netanyahu for speaking to Congress without his consent. The Democrats say they are in the dark about Prime Minister Netanyahu being allowed to speak to Congress about Iran. The Israeli Prime Minister believed the ‘two-party leadership’ of Congress had invited him. The White House made an announcement that Netanyahu will not be granted an audience with either Obama or the Secretary of State, John Kerry, during his next planned visit to the US on March 3. Mac Thornberry, the chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, saying Congress was exercising its proper constitutional role.
“To ask a foreign leader who is at the center of a huge number of the challenges facing the country to come talk to Congress, how is that not within our purview as an independent branch of government, to hear from him directly?” according to Reuters. (Gary Cameron, Reuters, January 23, 2015)
Matt Patterson (Newsweek Columnist) writes “Years from now, historians may regard the 2008 election of Barack Obama as an inscrutable and disturbing phenomenon, the result of a baffling breed of mass hysteria akin perhaps to the witch craze of the Middle Ages. It could not have gone otherwise with such an impostor in the Oval Office.” (Newsweek Magazine)
America’s middle class is getting poorer and disappearing. Or put another way, how capitalism dies. Obama claimed credit for a ‘recovery’ that has left the typical American poorer than he was before his office. And not only are they poorer, but also they are more dependent on the very people who engineered the phony recovery. (Stansberry Research)

Twenty-two US senators have introduced into the 113th Congress, Second Session, a bill, S.2277, “To prevent further Russian aggression toward Ukraine and other sovereign states in Europe and Eurasia, and for other purposes. ”https://beta.congress.gov/113/bills/s2277/BILLS-113s2277is.pdf The bill is before the Committee on Foreign Relations.
Senate bill S.2277 Title I “Reinvigorating the NATO Alliance” deals with strengthening US force posture in Europe and Eurasia and strengthening the NATO alliance, with accelerating the construction of ABM (anti-ballistic missile) bases on Russia’s borders. Senate bill S.2277 Title II “Deterring Further Russian Aggression in Europe” is about confronting “Russian aggression in Europe” with sanctions and with financial and diplomatic “support for Russian democracy and civil society organizations,” which means to pump billions of dollars into NGOs (non-governmental organizations) that can be used to destabilize Russia in the way that Washington used the NGOs it funded in Ukraine to overthrow the elected government. Senate bill S.2277 Title III ” deals with military and intelligence assistance for Ukraine, putting Ukraine, Georgia, and Moldova on a NATO track, expediting US natural gas exports in order to erase European and Eurasian energy dependence on Russia, preventing recognition of Crimea as again a part of Russia. Preparatory framework for war, hot or cold, with Russia, NATO Commander General Philip Breedlove announced his plan for a deployment of massive military means in Eastern Europe that would permit lightening responses against Russia in order to protect Europe from Russian aggression. This means war will continue, and that is clearly Washington’s intent. (Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, Institute for Political Economy)

MH17 July 2015 Update
The Russian company that makes the BUK air defense system that was used to shoot down a Malaysian airliner in east Ukraine said on Tuesday the plane was hit by a missile deployed by Ukraine and not widely used by Russia’s military. State-run Almaz-Antey said its own analysis of the wreckage of the Malaysia Airlines plane brought down on July 17 last year, killing 298 people, indicated it was hit by a BUK 9M38M1 surface-to-air missile armed with a 9H314M warhead. Shrapnel holes in the plane were consistent with that kind of missile and warhead, it said.
Such missiles have not been produced in Russia since 1999 and the last ones were delivered to foreign customers, it said, adding that the Russian armed forces now mainly use a 9M317M warhead with the BUK system. (Reuters)
MH17 with One Finger Pointing at Russia and Three Pointing at the White House Why believe either?
Facts: Search reveals MH17 was diverted 200km north from the usual flight path by Kiev air control tower. SBU security confiscated the Air Traffic Control recording of the tower talking to flight MH17. Carlos, the Spanish air traffic controller working at Kiev’s tower has disappeared. Carlos’s assessment a partial compilation of his tweets is collected here: the missile was fired by the Ukraine military under orders of the Ministry of Interior – NOT the Ministry of Defense. Security matters at the Ministry of the Interior happen to be under Andrey Paruby, who was closely working alongside the US. (Crux Report)

Free-market economist Ludwig von Mises, put it this way…”War prosperity is like the prosperity that an earthquake or a plague brings. The earthquake means good business for construction workers, and cholera improves the business of physicians, pharmacists, and undertakers; but no one has for that reason yet sought to celebrate earthquakes and cholera as stimulators of the productive forces in the general interest.” War is the last economic stimulus governments have left before collapse.

Immigration – Multiculturalism – Political Correctness – Integration – Affirmative Action – Melting Pot – Equality – Prejudice – Racism – ALL FAILED Why is the world better off with history’s largest social experiment?
“ALL the Kings Horses and ALL the Kings Men” could not put the world back together again. (excerpt taken from children’s poem Humpty Dumpty)
Social experiments by governments around the world, all of which are totally committed to taking more and more to keep re-distribute of wealth from becoming a reality through work and thrift.
History is our teacher. This kind of confluence of unprecedented artificial formal social stimulus experiment from governments will not happen again.
But in these extreme times, history teaches smart people to understand you do not get something for nothing. At the same time, the vast majority out there will fall for every something-for-nothing miracle government cure.
History teaches that Immigration – Multiculturalism – Political Correctness – Integration – Affirmative Action – Melting Pot – Equality – Prejudice – Racism are super potent and highly dangerous suppressants that has prolonged determinants.
History has taught governments nothing, it seems. This grand social experiment is no more than a last gasp of desperation designed to keep the greatest theoretical social attempt in history going forward – which is by definition is simply not possible.
Forced government social programs have failed. Left the world in turmoil. Left the world in chaos. Left the world broke. People have lost faith in government. People have lost faith in people in government.
People still prefer their own race. People still prefer their own prejudices. People still prefer their segregation. People still prefer their own choice. People still prefer to believe in their own culture. People still prefer to believe in their own country. People still prefer their liberty, freedom and family. People still prefer that they run their government and country.
People still prefer that Immigration – Multiculturalism – Political Correctness – Integration – Affirmative Action – Melting Pot – Equality – Prejudice – Racism be thrown in the garbage where it belongs. (Heritage Foundation)
Socialism (Equality) & Communism (Dictatorship) vs. Capitalism ( Inequality & Liberty) Equally poor or individual opportunity to succeed; ask the question if would you rather be born poor in a poor country or born poor in a rich and prosperous country?
Capitalism produces 2-two million new millionaires a year to a record 13.7 million millionaires through individual opportunity of self effort. Socialism and Communism to close the gap between rich and poor has made the poor poorer and destroyed much of the working capital that produces jobs for those who need to work for someone else in order to have a job.
Income for the poor rose with affirmative action, political correctness, and income re-distribution 0.4 percent. Income for those individuals who took the initiative to improve their lives gained 22.0 – 30.0 percent.
The secret and lesson to learn is not to hate the rich, what others have, or listen to government petitioning your vote through sorrow; but, learn the game of Capitalism about how to make yourself successful.

President Obama Approval Rating Clings to 9% as Worst President in U.S. History What do you do when a country is under siege?
Countries are working to achieve political independence from the US sphere. They should. The American people are under siege from their US President and Congress. What is at issue is whether economies throughout the world will let financial leverage dismantle the power of elected governments, and hence of democracy. Governments are sovereign. People are sovereign. World central banks now rig all asset prices. “The system we have now,” Stockman says, “is one in which the Fed decides, through a Politburo of planners sitting in Washington, how much liquidity is necessary, what the interest rate should be, what the unemployment rate should be, and what economic growth should be.” “There is no honest pricing left at all anywhere in the world because central banks everywhere manipulate and rig the price of all financial assets.” We cannot even analyze the economy in the traditional sense anymore because so much of it depends not on market forces but on the whims of people at the Fed.” (David Stockman – Former U.S. Rep. and U.S. Budget Director)
Obama’s Muslim Army Who’s side is Washington on?
ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) an enemy of the US and the army invading Iraq, by order of the White House was originally trained and armed by the CIA in Jordan to attack the Syrian government. Now ISIS is a more declared enemy of the US.
ISIS was kicked out of Al Qaeda headed by Ayman al Zawahiri (Osama bin Laden’s successor) for being too extreme. Now, ISIS places oil reserves in southern Iraq in jeopardy. (Czeschin Report)

Ukraine or US & Europe in Undeclared War with Russia War to end all war, again?

Battlefield Now Prepped Will it be bullets or butter?
For every major economic power throughout history, when governments became bankrupt and desperate for cash, they imploded by attacking others and their very own citizens, through sleight-of-hand tax increases, through confiscatory policies that first racked everyone’s money, then confiscated it, through loss of civil liberties, through propaganda and more, lots more.
This is what the United States is doing now. Russia is doing the same thing. Putin is rallying the national psyche. The Russian economy, weakened internally by corruption, by alcoholism, by declining revenues from the three-year bear market in commodities, is not in much better shape than Europe or the United States.
So the battlefield is now prepped. Russia versus the West. Russia versus Europe and the United States.
U.K companies are most worried about their financial services in Russia. France is worried about military sales and luxury goods. Germany has the biggest trade with Russia. And Switzerland and Germany also have the biggest banking and loan exposure to Russia.
Billions of dollars in foreign investment in some of the world’s biggest untapped oil reserves are at risk. Exxon Mobil Corp. (XOM), for instance, has drilling rights to 11.4 million net acres (46,134 square kilometers) in Russia, the company’s biggest single cache of drilling rights outside the United States. (John C.K. Daly – Oilprice.com)
Vladimir Putin’s incursion into Ukraine and the international condemnation that followed have not put a dent in Russia’s exports of gas and raw materials. Putin plans to roll back limits on Chinese investment in Russia. This will help replace Moscow’s lost access to Western capital.(Bloomberg)
White House Drives The World to World War III Is embarrassment worth war?
“The CIA director was sent to Kiev to launch a military suppression of the Russian separatists in the eastern and southern portions of Ukraine, former Russian territories for the most part that were foolishly attached to the Ukraine in the early years of Soviet rule.
Washington’s plan to grab Ukraine overlooked that the Russian and Russian-speaking parts of Ukraine were not likely to go along with their insertion into the EU and NATO while submitting to the persecution of Russian speaking peoples. Washington has lost Crimea, from which Washington intended to eject Russia from its Black Sea naval base.
Instead of admitting that its plan for grabbing Ukraine has gone amiss, Washington is unable to admit a mistake and, therefore, is pushing the crisis to more dangerous levels.
If Ukraine dissolves into secession with the former Russian territories reverting to Russia, Washington will be embarrassed that the result of its coup in Kiev was to restore the Russian provinces of Ukraine to Russia. To avoid this embarrassment, Washington is pushing the crisis toward war.” (Paul Craig Roberts – Institute for Political Economy – New Great Game)

WWIII One step from war?
Professor Stephen Cohen, Russian studies professor at NYU, said that this is the worst East-West crisis since the Cuban missile crisis in 1962. Russia’s grievance is the belief the U.S. has betrayed assurances given when the Soviet Union broke up, that NATO would not expand into Russia’s front yard. But the U.S. push into Ukraine became undeniable with the release of Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland’s potty-mouth diplomacy.
Long-time foreign correspondent Eric Margolis says Ukraine was too close for Russian comfort. “Unsubtle US efforts to bring ex-Russian Ukraine and the vital Sevastopol naval base in Crimea under NATO control — no doubt to punish Russia for supporting Syria and Iran — proved the last straw for the Kremlin.”
Now NATO’s secretary general has just confirmed its expansionistic plans and suspended cooperation with Russia. At the same time, Ukraine’s parliament has voted unanimously to conduct joint military exercises with NATO. Cohen says that in this tinderbox environment, we need to be careful about reckless NATO troop movements.
If NATO moves its troops to the Polish-west Ukrainian border, cautions Professor Cohen, much less into west Ukraine itself, Russian President Putin will almost certainly send his troops into southern and eastern Ukraine. If that happens we will have “an eye-ball to eye-ball confrontation between American and Russian military power.”
“Then we will be one step from war.”

Socialism The Worldwide Status Quo What is the most effective way to control the masses?
With every country in the world Socialist, the most effective way to keep the Elite Wealthy wealthy is to make all others equal in status, pay, and wealth. It is understandable why Capitalism is opposed so strongly by those in government and by the Elite Wealthy class.
World wealthy classes preserve their own wealth through controlling the economy by raising taxes (socialism), slashing wages (socialism), and cutting social services (socialism) for the working class. (Weiss Research)

History is on the side of Russia. The former USSR was Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Estonia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldova, Russia, Ukraine, Uzbekistan.
