power to endanger the public liberty." - - - - John Adams

Big Business loves Socialism

The Conservative Nanny State
Florida Republican State Senator Ronda Storms worried that poor people
were eating fatty foods, but she discovered how Big Business defends the Food Stamp
Marxist re-distribution of wealth into their bank accounts.

Big Business lines up to attack any possible reforms to the bi-partisan cradle-to-grave Welfare State

By Gary;

Florida Republican State Senator Ronda Storms is clueless about Big Government, but as a representative of the Socialist Nanny State she is deeply concerned that people only eat the government approved "correct" foods.

A few months ago Storms started noticing that some fellow shoppers were using federal food stamp money to purchase a lot of unhealthful junk food. And it galled her that people were indulging in sugary, fatty, highly-processed treats on the public dime.

"If we're going to be cutting services across the board," she said, "then people can live without potato chips, without store-bought cookies, without their sodas."  The fact that the entire program is a Marxist re-distribution of the wealth does not enter her mind.  She is only outraged at the so-called unhealthy foods being eaten reports the Los Angeles Times.
Big Business loves Socialism all the
way to the bank.

So being the prim and proper Conservative Nanny State Republican she introduced a bill which has passed out of committee. 

Big Business Socialism  -  Now the real shit is starting to fly.  Leaving aside Storms' Nanny worries about the eating habits of the poor, corporate America has come out of the woodwork to attack the bill. 

Big business could care less about free markets, Adam Smith or even what poor people eat.  But Big Business has fully latched on the public teat and they want that wealth re-distributed to them right now!

The lobbyists for big business are in attack mode against the bill:
  • Corn Refiners of America
  • Florida Beverage Association
  • Florida Petroleum Marketers 
  • Convenience Store Association 
  • Snack Food Association
  • Frozen Potato Products Institute
"Why is that? Because they know they are raking it in from food stamps," Storms said.

The Re-Distribution of the Wealth  -  There is a giant Marxist re-distribution of the wealth from those who work and pay taxes and those who suck down the taxes.  According to federal records, more than 46 million Americans are eating groceries bought with Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) funds.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture has been unwilling to issue further restrictions on food stamp purchases beyond items such as alcohol, tobacco and "hot foods."

Gary Reform  -  Bags of beans and blocks
of cheese.  If you want more then get a job.

Last year the USDA rejected New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg's "demonstration project" that would have prohibited soda purchases with food stamps.  It also rejected a Minnesota plan to prohibit the purchase of soft drinks and candy.

Re-distributing wealth from the taxpayers through Food Stamps and into Corporate bank accounts involves billions of dollars.  Big Business is fighting hard to protect their right to take your money.

The Gary Reform Plan  -  My plan is simple.  The state will temporarily help those in need, but there will be no plastic wealth transfer cards or paper stamps redeemable in free goodies.

No, under my plan (which would never pass) you would get your bags of beans, some eggs, cheap bread, blocks of American cheese, canned fruits, canned veggies and milk.  That's it.  Enough to keep you alive and much more than countless millions of people get to eat around the world.

If you want different foods then get a fucking job.  But the Socialists in Washington and in business will never allow it.

Socialism's answer to everything is more taxes

A Massive Tax Increase
French President Nicolas Sarkozy's answer to a declining economy is more taxes. 

More Taxes is always the answer to European Socialists
  • Idiot Socialists somehow think you can stimulate an economy by taking money out of a person's wallet and giving it to the government.

#1)  French economy sinking with 0.5% growth

The French government on Monday halved its 2012 growth forecast, piling more pressure on Nicolas Sarkozy a day after the president unveiled a raft of measures he hopes will jumpstart the economy.

The downward revision from 1.0 percent to 0.5 percent was made to "take into account the deterioration of the economic situation," Prime Minister Francois Fillon told reporters.

The International Monetary Fund said it predicted that the French economy would grow by 0.2 percent this year and that the eurozone as a whole would fall into a mild recession

#2)  France to increase the sales tax to 21.2%

President Nicolas Sarkozy revealed plans to raise the normal level of VAT by 1.6 per cent to 21.2 percent and introduce a 0.1 percent "Robin Hood" financial transaction tax.

Sarkozy's TV appearance comes just two weeks after France lost its treasured Triple A credit rating. Unemployment stands at nearly three million, a 12-year high, and public debt is at record levels

Marine Le Pen, the candidate for the right-wing's National Front Party, labeled Sarkozy’s plans a “double dose of ultra-liberal remedies”.

France will vote on April 22 in the first round of the presidential election. Sarkozy, who is yet to officially announce his candidacy, is lagging behind Socialist Party candidate François Hollande in the polls.

From National Socialism to Democrat Socialism

A Socialist Democrat car designed by and for Liberal Weenies.
General Motors (aka - Government Motors) and their EN-V–the Electric Networked Vehicle.  The Socialist Democratic Party is ordering businesses and the people to drive only cars approved by "The Party."

The Circle of Life  -  First came the National Socialist ordered Volkswagen.  Now comes the Democrat Socialist ordered electric car. . . . . Bend over America!
  • Democrat Socialists are going to FORCE people into only buying the cars that have been approved by the Party and allied Green Socialists groups.
  • Previously free businesses are going to be FORCED by the Democrat Socialists to build the cars no one wants and install charging stations at their expense.

By Gary;

The un-elected Air Resources Board of the People's Republic of California just unanimously approved new rules that require that one in seven of the new cars sold in the state in 2025 be an electric or other zero-emission vehicle.

Never mind that people might like to choose for themselves what cars they would like to purchase.  That is not allowed.  The Party knows best.  Obey.

This Green Socialist plan also mandates a 50 percent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions from today's standards by 2025.

We now have a Democrat Socialist Big Government mandate to have 1.4 million electric and hybrid vehicles on state roads by 2025 reports the Economic Times.

Trade groups representing auto dealers worried that the new regulations would increase the costs of vehicles for consumers and stifle the industry's growth.  The California New Car Dealers Association and other industry groups representing those who sell cars said the board is overestimating consumer demand for electric vehicles and other so-called "zero-emission vehicles."

The requirements are expected to drive up car prices. The board staff predicts that the advanced technologies needed to meet the new standards will add $1,900 to the price of a new car. . . . and take a guess who has to pick up that tab?  The people naturally.

If oil companies don't reach an agreement with the state to voluntarily install alternative fueling stations, such as for hydrogen fuel cells, the new rules will FORCE them to do so when a certain number of cars using that fuel is reached.

California has also previously set zero-emissions vehicle mandates, which 10 other states have also currently adopted.
(The Economic Times)

Is there a difference between current Democrat Socialism and National Socialism?  Not really.  Force is Force.

"We are socialists, we are enemies of today’s capitalistic economic system for the exploitation of the economically weak, with its unfair salaries, with its unseemly evaluation of a human being according to wealth and property instead of responsibility and performance, and we are determined to destroy this system under all conditions."
- - - - Adolf Hitler

'The VW - Hitler's gift to the reconstruction.'

                        National Socialism also tells you what car to drive
Sitting at a restaurant table in Munich in the summer of 1932, Hitler designed the prototype for what would become the immensely successful Beetle design for Volkswagen (literally, the "car of the people").

In an era where only the most economic elite possessed cars, Hitler believed that all people should be able to own a car and additionally thought that a smart design could allow for reliability, enjoyment, and vacation travel. The name given to the car in 1938 was Kraft durch Freude (KdF-Wagen, literally "strength through joy car").

Only buy cars approved by the Party.

Christians demand freedom in Muslim Indonesia

Christians want harassment by Islamist radical groups to stop
  • Other nations of the world do little to help minorities living under Islam

Indonesian Christians held a prayer vigil in Jakarta urging President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono to re-open their church and stop intimidation by Muslim hardliners.

About 200 people, mostly members of the Taman Yasmin Indonesian Christian Church, prayed and sang hymns outside the state palace.

"We hope the president will protect us from harassment by radical groups and re-open the church which is legally ours so we can conduct worship," the group's spokeswoman Dwiati Novita Rini told AFP.

The Christians have been forced to hold services on the pavement outside their church in Bogor city, south of Jakarta, after its permit was revoked in 2008, Rini said.

"But the Supreme Court overturned the decision in December 2010 and ordered for the church to be re-opened. The Bogor city administration however refused to comply," she added.

The congregation has since moved their weekly service to a house near a church but faced intimidation and verbal abuse from Muslim hardliners, Rini said.

"A few dozen would harass us every weekend. But last Sunday, hundreds intimidated us with sticks and rocks and shouted at us to leave," she added.

Although the constitution explicitly guarantees freedom of religion and the country of some 240 million people, laws make it difficult for faiths other than Islam to establish houses of worship.

Christians are an oppressed minority in an Indonesia that is about 87% Muslim.

Two U.S. Army brigades in Germany to be eliminated

The War in Libya
The recent Libyan War proved that infantry and expensive armored vehicles are nothing but
targets for modern weapons. 

Reform at Last  -  Two armored brigades are to be eliminated

Military reform at last.  Ancient World War II technology is being removed from the battlefield.  The U.S. Pentagon says they will take two heavy armor brigades out of Europe in 2013 and 2014 and eliminate them.

General Raymond Odierno says the military is working hard to mitigate the impact on European allies and will rotate other Army units into the region to train with NATO partners.

June 6, 1944  -  The fact of the matter is expensive armored units became obsolete on D-Day in Normandy.  The Germans were unable to move men and equipment on the battlefield without becoming targets for what was then "modern" airpower in 1944.

Today it is a thousand times worse.  In the Libya War airpower destroyed anything that moved in front of the rebel army . . . . but "army" is too strong a word.  The rebels were true untrained militia advancing on the enemy in Toyota pickup trucks.  But that did not matter when NATO jets cleared the battlefield of anything that moved.

Modern Air Power is Supreme (IRAQ)

The units will be eliminated, rather than moved back to the United States. Odierno says removing two of four brigades now in Europe will not necessarily make NATO allies shoulder more of the load if ground forces are needed for a large-scale operation in the region.

The units to be dismantled are based in Germany — the 172nd Infantry Brigade, currently in Grafenwoehr, and the 170th Infantry Brigade in Baumholder.

A Victory against the Food Police

A major victory against the Leftist Food Nazis.
A major study of 40,000 people showed no link between fried food and heart disease.

It is a "myth" that regularly eating fried foods causes heart attacks

The Leftist Food Nazis who want to tell everyone how to live their lives just got a fast kick in the balls.

A major study published in the British Medical Journal found no association between the frequency of fried food consumption in Spain and the incidence of serious heart disease.

Spanish researchers followed more than 40,000 people, two-thirds of whom were women, from the mid 1990s to 2004 reports the UK Telegraph.

How often they ate fried foods, either at home or while out. They then looked to see whether eating fried foods regularly increased the likelihood of falling ill from having coronary heart disease, such as a heart attack or angina requiring surgery.

Dividing participants into four groups, from lowest fried food intake to highest, they found no significant difference in heart disease.

There were 606 incidents linked to heart disease in total, but they were split relatively evenly between the four groups.

The authors concluded: "In a Mediterranean country where olive and sunflower oils are the most commonly used fats for frying, and where large amounts of fried foods are consumed both at and away from home, no association was observed between fried food consumption and the risk of coronary heart disease or death."

Commenting on the findings in the BMJ, Professor Michael Leitzmann of the University of Regensburg in Germany said two other studies - one from Costa Rica and another by an international team - had also failed to find strong evidence of a link.

Fried food did contain more calories, he said, while it had also been linked to high blood pressure and obesity.

He said: "Taken together, the myth that frying food is generally bad for the heart is not supported by available evidence.

The Leftist Food Nazis should note that KFC's Colonel Harland Sanders lived to the age of 90.

Roseanne Barr for President?

Roseanne Barr  -  A Green Marxist for President

Roseanne Barr has taken several steps to make it possible for her to seek the Green Party presidential nomination. She filed with the Federal Election Commission on January 25, and she has fulfilled most of the requirements of the Green Party to seek the nomination.

She is a registered Green Party member in California, although she also has a home in Hawaii. One final requirement that she may not have fulfilled (so far anyway) is to have raised $5,000 by February 1.

Big Brother comes to life with "Pre-Crime"

“This is a mournful discovery.
 1)Those who agree with you are insane.
2)Those who do not agree with you are in power.”
― Philip K. Dick

The Minority Report:   "Mr. Marks, by mandate of the District of Columbia Precrime Division, I'm placing you under arrest for the future murder of Sarah Marks and Donald Dubin that was to take place today, April 22 at 0800 hours and four minutes."

The Pre-Crime Police  -  Science Fiction and Big Brother merge into one giant clusterfuck

The great Science Fiction writer Philip K. Dick saw a grim future Big Brother world.  That vision has made it to film in Blade Runner and Total Recall.  Dick's vision in Minority Report was of a police state based on arresting "criminals" befroe a crime is even committed (Pre-Crime).  That nightmare is now coming true.

The Associated Press reports that the East Orange, New Jersey police force plans to cut crime by highlighting suspects with a red-beamed spotlight– before any crime is committed– a “pre-crime” deterrent to be mounted on nearby street lights or other fixtures.

Police officers will monitor hundreds of video feeds from across the city and opt to brand would-be criminals with a red glow if they believe they are about to engage in a crime.

Big Brother uses 'Precrime' to control the Sheeple 

Talking cameras in the UK bark orders at ‘anti-social’ offenders, while the Homeland Stasi here has partnered with Intellistreets to release “smart” street lights capable of saving energy while monitoring & recording citizens, as well as displaying government-mandated emergency alerts on digital banners reports Infowars.

Now “pre-crime” spotlights that bathe surveillance targets in a criminally-branded red color will help complete the circle of preemptive suspicion.

A spokesperson for the ACLU noted a worrisome climate of monitoring and spying on political groups, anti-abortion activists and more.

Big Brother is watching your every move


Socialism wins in Florida

On the People:   "If God didn't want them sheared, he would not have made them sheep."
- - - Eli Wallach  (The Magnificent Seven)

By Gary;

Socialism has won the day in the "small government" Republican Party.

Gingrich Socialist Class Warfare:   "I think you have to live in worlds of Swiss bank accounts and Cayman Island accounts and an automatic $20-million-a-year income with no work to have some fantasy this far from reality," said Gingrich of Romney.

Gingrich is a pig, but he is not a fool.  He is throwing Socialist red meat at Republican voters because it works!  So-called small government Republicans are falling all over themselves to speak out for Gingrich and cast their vote for him.

Businessman Mitt Romney is a couple of notches better.  Unlike Gingrich, at lease Romney has earned money in the private sector.  But he is still the author of Big Government Romney-Care.  His saving grace is being pro-business.

Rick Santorum served in Congress and voted with his party to massively increase Big Government spending and to expand the reach and scope of the Big Brother State.

So in the most recent Florida poll the three Big Government Republicans get 69% of the vote.  Limited government Constitutional Federalist Ron Paul gets a huge 13%. 

Like Eli Wallach in the The Magnificent Seven, both
Democrats and Republicans want to shear the tax paying
Sheeple to fund Big Government.  The argument is
only over how much wool to take from the helpless beast.

The Sheeple GOP voters are mesmerized by the siren call of Socialism.  The idea of even casting a protest vote for Ron Paul never even enters their minds.  After all the Right-Wing Media has tagged Paul as a "crazy" and you can't vote for a crazy person.  

Latino Republicans

There is no doubt that Republicans have a Death Wish.  Judging by the way they talk about immigration they must want their party to become extinct.

Romney spouts off about "self-deportation" while Gingrich runs radio ads that labeled Romney "anti-immigrant".    Those ads were pulled by Gingrich after a scolding from Senator Marco Rubio.

Republicans are idiots when it comes to Latinos, and Florida has a solid Latino Republican base too.

It comes down to proper marketing.  When the question of immigration comes up only one word should come out of any Republican's mouth:   JOBS

The GOP conversation should only be about protecting the jobs of Hispanic, Asian, Black and White American workers from cheap labor coming here illiegally during the current depression.  All talk of borders and citizenship should be deflected to later "when our economy improves."

Republicans threw away the Black vote.  If they blow off the Latino vote the party will become extinct.

Sheeple Republican voters in Florida on their way to the polls to vote for Big Government Republicans Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum and Mitt Romney.  The thought of casting a protest vote for limited government Constitutional Federalist Ron Paul never even enters their minds.  Baaaa . . . . . .

Green Socialism Fails Again

Green Socialism goes bankrupt
  • Say good-bye to another $118 million tax dollars.

Ener1--a company that manufactures batteries for electric cars is bankrupt.  The company received $118.5 million in federal stimulus money.  Vice Comrade Joe Biden visited the plant last year the day after Comrade Obama’s State of the Union Address.  The company announced today that it has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.

In last year’s State of the Union Address Obama, in true Socialist command and control economy style, he set a national goal of having a million electric vehicles on the road in the United States by 2015.   A goal that would be achieved by having the government take money from the oil industry and “invest” it in green government approved new technology.

Ener1 plant in Greenfield, Ind. received a $118.5 million grant from the Department of Energy.

The Ener1 Chapter 11 filing came a year to the day after Vice President Biden visited the companies Greenfield plant.

Obama's Green Socialism has previously come under fire for a $535 million loan the Energy Department made to Solyndra, a California-based solar panel company. Solyndra filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection last fall.

Congratulations to Egypt

Americans pulling down the statue of King George III
Thinking Americans should be excited that Egypt has overthrown a dictatorship.

Americans have forgotten our roots when we violently overthrew our Monarchy

By Gary;

First of all I would like to congratulate Egypt for their free elections.  May they be the first of many.

But I am always amazed at the stupidity of people.  In this case, the endless and brainless attacks by the American politicians and talking heads on TV and radio on the revolution in Egypt.  Many Americans appear to be angry that the Muslim Brotherhood dared to win seats in Parliament without asking for our permission.

Americans have forgotten our roots.  Our Founding Fathers engaged in an extremely violent revolution to overthrow our Monarchy.  Over 50,000 Americans died or were wounded.  About 47,000 British and German mercenaries were killed or wounded.

I have listened to so many idiot American "Conservatives" wring their hands and wish more could have been done to prop up the Dictatorship in Egypt.  The Conservatives screamed that the Muslim Brotherhood might win the elections!  Something must be done! 

Conservatives supporting a corrupt dictatorship.  This is the opposite of American values.

The opening of the Parliament of Egypt this week.

Well the Muslim Brotherhood won a free election.  Congratulations and so what. 

It is not the business of any other nation in the world who wins free elections held in any country.  As long as Egypt is not attacking their neighbors or doing mass murder to their own citizens then people need to shut up and leave Egypt alone.

It might even be a good idea to offer Egypt our help to build their economy and strengthen democracy.  The Muslin Brotherhood can believe in whatever sect of Islam they want, but everything always boils down to jobs and the economy.  Like any other political party, the Brotherhood is going to have to deal with economics. 

Many democratic revolutions have failed and dictatorships were established.  We should be there to help Egypt in their hour of need. 

As was asked of Ben Franklin.  “Well, Doctor, what have we got—a Republic or a Monarchy?” . . . . “A Republic, if you can keep it.” 

BBC News Egypt marks protest anniversary in Tahrir Square

Freedom.  What a concept.
Free elections with many different political parties.  The elections in Egypt were a lot more free than those held in the United States where no third party has won a seat in our lower house since 1948.

Muslims chop off man's arm

Somali pirates chop off ship captain's arm  -  Demand $3 million ransom

Muslim Somali pirates have started to cut off their hostages' limbs in a bid to extract even greater ransoms from the owners of the ships they capture.

The horrific new tactic was used on the Vietnamese captain of a ship being held in the Somali pirate lair of Haradhere.

Chao-I Wu's right arm was cut off after negotiations to pay a $3 million ransom for his fishing ship, the FV Shiuh Fu-1, broke down.

Afterwards, the pirates allowed Wu's fellow crew members to call their families and describe what had happened reports the UK Daily Mail.

'This group of pirates were allowed the crew to call their relatives for only a few minutes - just long enough to tell their families about the amputation.

'They begged their relatives to pay and some of them were crying.

'It was a message to the owner and their families that if the owners don't pay this amount of ransom they will hurt another crew member', a pirate source told the Somalia Report news service.

Russian Navy vs Somali Pirates . . . Guess who wins!

Only the Supreme Court stands between us and Dictatorship

"It is emphatically the province and duty of the judicial department to say what the law is."   
- - - - Federalist Chief Justice John Marshall

By Gary;

From 1789 on the non-thinking and often scheming politicians have screamed about the power of those "evil" un-elected Federal Judges.  But our Federalist Founding Fathers knew that only with a judiciary beyond the reach of day-to-day politics would there even be a chance to protect the rights of the people.

Congress has been flooding the nation with endless Big Government and Socialist laws.  It is obvious that left alone Congress and/or the President would create an authoritarian Big Brother State.

But there is some hope.  Here are three cases in the last month where the Supreme Court stood up for the rule of law and the Bill of Rights . . . . which is exactly what the Founding Fathers wanted them to do.

Case #1  -   By a 9-0 vote the justices ruled it was unconstitutional for the police to attach a small GPS device to a car's bumper and track a car for a month. The tracking data helped convict a man of running a drug-dealing operation.  The Court ruled strongly in favor of the 4th Amendment in the Bill of Rights.

It is rare when a drug criminal wins in the conservative-leaning high court, but the GPS case concerned whether the modern state had unlimited power to track and monitor its citizens, evoking the specter of George Orwell's "1984."

"Society's expectation has been that law enforcement agents and others would not — and indeed, in the main, simply could not — secretly monitor and catalog every single movement of an individual's car for a very long period," Samuel Alito wrote, adding that such a search "surely crossed" the constitutional line. Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen Breyer and Elena Kagan agreed with Alito.

Case #2   -   The U.S. Supreme Court ruled in an 8 to 1 vote to protect the rights of companies and individuals to freely enter into contracts together.   The Court said credit repair companies could block such lawsuits and instead force disgruntled customers into binding arbitration if they had agreed to such a provision in the fine print of their agreements.

The ruling was another in a string of high court rulings in recent years that have backed an arbitration clause over a customer's right to file a lawsuit.  The ruling pissed off the endless stream of ambulance chasing lawyers looking to break contracts in order to line their pockets.

Case #3  -   In a 9 to 0 ruling the high court for the first time concluded the Constitution includes a “ministerial exception” that protects churches and their schools from undue interference from the government and its courts.

The 1st Amendment in the Bill of Rights protects the “free exercise of religion,” and Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. said the state infringes on religious freedom if it forces a church or its schools to accept or retain “an unwanted minister.”

A Federalist Constitution

The Federalist Papers #78  -  "The interpretation of the laws is the proper and peculiar province of the courts. A constitution is, in fact, and must be regarded by the judges, as a fundamental law. It therefore belongs to them to ascertain its meaning, as well as the meaning of any particular act proceeding from the legislative body."    - - - - Alexander Hamilton

The United States Supreme Court is the last living fragment of our Founding Fathers and the Federalist Party.  The rest of the Constitution has been smashed almost beyond recognition.

THE PRESIDENT  -  Our chief executive was to be elected by the state legislatures through members appointed to the Electoral College.  By the election of 1828 this system effectively morphed into a vote by the people. 

But with the need for Presidential candidates to get popular votes, candidates have slowly adopted Marxist re-distribution of the wealth programs in order to buy the votes needed for their party.  Today we have a full-throated, red flag waving Marxist in the White House preaching Class Warfare to an eager public that wants "free" stuff paid for by someone else. 

The "small government" Republicans are not too much better.  Both Newt Gingrich and Rick Perry used Left-Wing Socialist arguments to attack a businessman (Romney) for daring to make money and create jobs in the free enterprise system.  Plus for decades GOP Presidents have eagerly supported growing a centralized Big Brother state with other people's money.

Both parties are using Karl Marx as a guide.  They tax money from the producers and re-distribute the wealth by give out trillions of dollars in "free" goodies to buy votes.

Senate and House candidates are
nothing more than Puppets on the
strings of Billionaire Cartels of labor
unions and corporations.
THE SENATE  -   The Founders had the state legislatures select U.S. Senators to represent their states in Washington D.C.  With the adoption of the 17th Amendment in 1913, Senators were now to be elected by popular vote.

In comes the law of unintended consequences. 

Today Senators need countless millions of dollars to campaign with TV, radio and direct mail.  Billionaire Cartels of labor unions and corporations provide that money.  One Billionaire Cartel selects and funds a Puppet Senate candidate to fight with the other Billionaire Cartel's Puppet Senate candidate. 

Neither candidate represents the state or the people.  Money talks and the Puppet candidates know full well where their money comes from, who their real Master is and who will financially take care of them when they leave office.

THE HOUSE  -  Article One; Section Two of the Constitution:  "The number of Representatives shall not exceed one for every thirty thousand."  The House was to belong to the People.  With small Congressional seats anyone could run for and win public office.  This system produced great leaders like Congressmen Henry Clay, John Quincy Adams, Davy Crockett and Abraham Lincoln.

Today House seats have ballooned up to about 700,000 people.  The common man has almost no chance to win office.  The corrupt special interest money of the Billionaire Cartels has moved into House races.  Millions and millions of dollars is now being spent on individual House races.  More and more the Cartels are selecting and funding their Puppets.

The United States is becoming a oligarchy . . . not a Republic.

THE SUPREME COURT  -  For all their faults, Federal Judges with lifetime appointments are the last barrier between us and a centralized Dictatorship.

The elected political elites have their snouts deep in the money trough of corruption.  But Judges will stay in office until very, very late in life.  As the Founders intended, Judges have no real interest in pleasing outside corrupt money interests.  That allows them to be more independent while the elected politicians are always looking over their shoulder to see what their Masters want them to do.

How long does the Republic have left?

Big Government Statist Newt Gingrich has already said he would order the arrest of Judges he does not like and drag them before a Star Chamber Court hearing in Congress.  Meanwhile Comrade Obama spouts pure Marxism and Class Warfare directly from the Oval Office. While members of Congress are bought and paid for by the Billionaire Cartel Oligarchs.

Unless there are rapid changes the Republic of the Founders will be dead within a generation.  Not even the Supreme Court will be able to hold back the tide.

The Supreme Court is the last barrier against a tide of Marxism and Oligarchy Dictatorship.

True Lies - The real inflation and unemployment numbers

True Lies  -  Both political parties manipulate the inflation and unemployment numbers to protect the Beltway Elites

During the term of Comrade Barack Obama prices have been increasing according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
  • Gasoline has jumped 83 percent
  • Ground beef has gone up 24 percent
  • Bacon has gone up 22 percent.
  • Ice cream prices for a half-gallon increased 19.1 percent.
This is just the tip of the iceberg.   

Both corrupt political parties have agreed with each other to "fix" the way economic numbers are calculated.  The Media and Beltway Power Elites tell you only what they want you to know.

But the truth is out there . . . read on.

The Bi-Partisan Hiding of the Real Inflation Numbers.
The blue line show the real level of inflation the way it was calculated before the insane inflation of the Jimmy Carter years.  Both political parties were eager to "re-calculate" the way inflation was measured.  Translation:  both parties work together to hide the real inflation from the public.

11% True Inflation . . . not the 3% the government claims

The CPI-U (consumer price index) is the broadest measure of consumer price inflation for goods and services published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).

While the headline number usually is the seasonally-adjusted month-to-month change, the formal CPI is reported on a not-seasonally-adjusted basis, with annual inflation measured in terms of year-to-year percent change in the price index.

In the chart we show SGS-Alternate CPI estimate based on the methodology which was employed prior to 1980.    (Shadow Government Statistics)

The blue line is the unemployment number the way it was calculated by the government before 1994.  The government lies to the public to keep them from soiling their pants and voting out the crooked bastards in Washington.

23% True Unemployment . . . not the 8.5% the government claims

The seasonally-adjusted SGS Alternate Unemployment Rate reflects current unemployment reporting methodology adjusted for SGS-estimated long-term discouraged workers, who were defined out of official existence in 1994. That estimate is added to the BLS estimate of U-6 unemployment, which includes short-term discouraged workers.

The U-3 unemployment rate is the monthly headline number. The U-6 unemployment rate is the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ (BLS) broadest unemployment measure, including short-term discouraged and other marginally-attached workers as well as those forced to work part-time because they cannot find full-time employment.    (Shadow Government Statistics)


The blue line shows that our economy is SHRINKING, not growing like the politicians claim.

Our Gross Domestic Product went down by 2.5% . . . not a 1.8% increase like the government claims.

The SGS-Alternate GDP reflects the inflation-adjusted, or real, year-to-year GDP change, adjusted for distortions in government inflation usage and methodological changes that have resulted in a built-in upside bias to official reporting.    (Shadow Government Statistics)

Never, ever question your Liberal Puppetmasters in Washington.  Only a "crazy" person
would believe our Masters would lie to us.

The Bribery of New Gingrich

The Gang Rape of the Taxpayer
Newt takes a $1.6 million retroactive bribe from Freddie Mac for "services rendered" while the taxpayers get fucked.
  • Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae have received a total $153 billion in taxpayer bailouts.
  • Millions of homes have gone into foreclosure through loan fraud and no one goes to jail.
  • The "Old Boy's Network" keeps all the insiders flush with money to keep their mouths shut.
  • Newt was paid about $30,000 a month by these corrupt bastards.
  • And now moron Republicans want Newt to be President. 

By Gary;

Freddie Mac hires Newt as their "Historian" for $25,000 to $30,000 a month.  This is totally off the bullshit meter scale.

Big Government Republican Newt Gingrich thinks you are a fool.  At first he played the game that his lawyers were blocking him from releasing his corrupt consulting contracts with Freddie Mac.  Now under pressure under pressure from Mitt Romney, candidate Newt Gingrich’s consulting business released his contract with Freddie Mac.

But he still thinks you are a FOOL.  He only released the contract for 2006 even though he worked for them for eight years.  The contract calls him a "consultant" but is vague about his specific duties. It calls for a $300,000 retainer and $25,000 a month fee.   (National Journal)

Now Gingrich's people say his early contracts with Freddie Mac are magically "missing".

Gingrich has offered varying explanations for his ties to the mortgage company, initially claiming he was hired as an “historian” (ha, ha, ha) and later characterizing himself as a strategic adviser.  (Pure bullshit)

Gingrich's continued failure to make all the contracts public is being challenged by his chief rival for the Republican nomination, former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney reports the San Francisco Chronicle.

"I'd like to see what he actually told Freddie Mac," Romney said, addressing reporters gathered outside his  campaign headquarters. "Let's see what his report was."

The latest Rasmussen poll of idiot, mouth-breathing Florida Republican voters puts the corrupt Gingrich ahead of an honest Romney by 41% to 32%.  

Gingrich initially said he couldn't release the two contracts, which paid him at least $1.6 million, because Freddie Mac officials wouldn't let him. When the company subsequently said he could make them public, he said his former consulting firm was the impediment. Gingrich's campaign and the consulting firm employ the same attorney.  This fat little bastard is a moving target.  He does not want to answer real questions.

Gingrich's CNN account also conflicts with comments he made in an interview posted on the Freddie Mac website in 2007, while he was being paid about $30,000 a month to help the company refurbish its "image" with Republican lawmakers.
TRANSLATION:   Keep your mouths shut.  Don't ask questions.  When you retire from government we will take care of you just like we did Newt. 
(San Francisco Chronicle)

While Newt had his snout deep in the trough of corruption, some real Americans said:

"We mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor."
