Angry Americans protest against U.S. monetary policy

Today is National End The Fed day, and a number of U.S. citizens concerned with the country’s fiscal policy have gathered in 39 cities nationwide at each Federal Reserve building saying that they are sick and tired of being robbed.

End The Fed Rally Draws Thousands Around the Country, Few Seem to Notice

You would think that a 39 city protest involving thousands of people might warrant a national wire story, maybe a mention on cable news, but no. Reporters don't understand the issue and therefore they ignore it. Of course this can be said for most of the important issues that affect people's lives. Hence we get wall-to-wall coverage of the Obama daughter's educational preferences. Fiddling while Rome burns seems almost understated.

The G-20’s Secret Debt Solution

Behind the scenes, a far more fundamental fix is being discussed — the possible revaluation of gold and the birth of an entirely new monetary system.

Is it Possible All Mortgage Contracts Are Void and Foreclosures are Invalid?

Jerome Daly was a homeowner living in Minnesota who stopped paying his mortgage. The lender, First National Bank of Montgomery, of course, sued the man for foreclosure. Daly presented his argument before a jury as to why he did not owe the bank anything.

G-20 Meets, Dines in DC, Does Nothing to Save the World Economy

President Bush hosted the G-20 summit –the official menu included fruitwood-smoked quail, thyme-roasted rack of lamb and baked Vermont brie with walnut crostini, along with three wines . . .

More than a quarter million U.S. households received a foreclosure filing in October. A total of 279,561 properties got a default notice, were warned of a pending auction or were foreclosed.

World leaders washed down their quail and lamb with three expensive wines – one Shafer Cabernet “ Hillside Select” 2003 sells at $499 a bottle.

The G-20 Washout

As expected, the G-20 Economic Summit in Washington turned out to be a total bust. None of the problems which have pushed the global economy to the brink of disaster were resolved and none of the main players who gamed the system with their toxic securities were held accountable. Instead, the visiting dignitaries gorged themselves on stuffed quail and roast rack of lamb before settling on a toothless "Statement on Financial Markets" which accomplished absolutely nothing.

Banker Manipulation Of Gold And Silver Prices Further Exposed

Commodities experts are in agreement that the price of gold and silver is being manipulated by bankers and government officials in order to halt a mass abandonment of paper currencies and the debt based economy.

Financial Crisis Tab Already In The Trillions

Given the speed at which the federal government is throwing money at the financial crisis, the average taxpayer, never mind member of Congress, might not be faulted for losing track.

CNBC, however, has been paying very close attention and keeping a running tally of actual spending as well as the commitments involved.

Try $4.28 trillion dollars. That's $4,284,500,000,000 and more than what was spent on WW II, if adjusted for inflation, based on our computations from a variety of estimates and sources*.

Webmaster's Commentary:

That comes out to $14,000 for every living American, including children too young and retirees too old to pay taxes.

So, another way to look at it is that every household in America gets soaked for about $50,000 in additional taxes, for which they get no new services, and the inflation caused by an additional $4.2 trillion in cash chasing too few goods and services.

Such a deal!

General Motors to Invest $1 Billion in Brazil Operations -- Money to Come from U.S. Rescue Program

General Motors plans to invest $1 billion in Brazil to avoid the kind of problems the U.S. automaker is facing in its home market, said the beleaguered car maker.

According to the president of GM Brazil-Mercosur, Jaime Ardila, the funding will come from the package of financial aid that the manufacturer will receive from the U.S. government and will be used to "complete the renovation of the line of products up to 2012."

Webmaster's Commentary:

So let me get this straight; our taxpayer dollars are expected to pay for an expansion of the GM plant in Brazil, if the auto maker bailout happens??

Forgive me; I'm just having a hard time wrapping my head around this.

“Shaping a New World Order” During “Vigilant Shield”

Here’s the CNN headline: G-20: Shaping a New World Order.

But look what’s going to be happening at the same time: Vigilant Shield.

World leaders at economic summit vow to cooperate

President George W. Bush underscored how dire the economic crisis has become when he told world leaders that he had agreed to a $700 billion rescue plan for financial institutions only after he'd learned the U.S. was at risk of sinking into a "depression greater than the Great Depression."

Webmaster's Commentary:

Bush either got played by a bunch of people wanting to loot the nation, or Bush himself is playing the rest of the G-20 for some as yet unknown agenda.

But we know that the reasons given for the bailout are totally fictitious, because the money went somewhere other than promised, there is no transparency, and the number 700 billion was picked out of thin air.

Security focused on protesters more than terror

U.S. intelligence officials say they have no credible information about potential terrorist or criminal attacks against a weekend summit in Washington of world leaders to deal with the global financial crisis.

In fact, law enforcement officials said they were more concerned about angry protesters, such as people left jobless by the financial meltdown, than they were about terrorists.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Actually, it has been that way all along.

Rothschild sees a New World Order

Gradually the firm has started expanding throughout the world, including the Gulf. “There is no debate that Rothschild is a Jewish family, but we are proud to be in this region. However, it takes time to develop a global footprint,” he says.

Baron Rothschild shares most people’s view that there is a New World Order. In his opinion, banks will deleverage and there will be a new form of global governance.

So how did the Rothschilds manage to emerge relatively unscathed from the financial meltdown? “You could say that we may have more insights than others..."

Economic collapse: important upcoming dates

The engineers of the economic collapse aren’t finished with you yet. There is still a lot of work that needs to be done to scare you into agreeing to more outright theft of your sovereignty, freedom and wealth.

Now for what is coming next:

  • It was predicted at the end of October that the U.S. Dollar would collapse within 30 days.
  • The dollar collapse will be accelerated by a COMEX default beginning on November 28th. More on what this will look like here.
  • Colin Powell has warned of a “crisis” that will happen on January 21st or 22nd, 2009. It remains to be seen whether this staged event will be financial in nature.
  • The U.S. government is expected to go bankrupt/default in February 2009.

Zionist Extortion

The "Internal Revenue Service" is a collection agency for the private, profit-making corporation that calls itself the Federal Reserve System. The fools who still send money to this private company can prove this by examining the backs of their cancelled checks to the IRS. It will say "Pay to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York." It doesn't say, "Pay to the US Treasury Department." Why do you suppose that is? Your hard-earned money goes to a private company that has never been audited, that was created by foreigners for their own gain.

Washington's $5 Trillion Tab

According to CreditSights, a research firm in New York and London, the U.S. government has put itself on the hook for some $5 trillion, so far, in an attempt to arrest a collapse of the financial system.

Webmaster's Commentary:

This is a mis-statement. The government has not put itself on the hook; it has put YOU on the hook, to the tune of about $50,000 per household.

Plus accruing compound interest.

See The United States Is In Deep Doodoo!

Financial Crisis Tab Already In The Trillions
November 18, 2008, CNBC

Given the speed at which the federal government is throwing money at the financial crisis, the average taxpayer, never mind member of Congress, might not be faulted for losing track. CNBC, however, has been paying very close attention and keeping a running tally of actual spending as well as the commitments involved. Try $4.28 trillion dollars. That's $4,284,500,000,000 and more than what was spent on WW II, if adjusted for inflation, based on our computations from a variety of estimates and sources. Not only is it an astronomical amount of money, it's a complicated cocktail of budgeted dollars, actual spending, guarantees, loans, swaps and other market mechanisms by the Federal Reserve, the Treasury and other offices of government taken over roughly the last year, based on government data and news releases. Strictly speaking, not every cent is a direct result of what's called the financial crisis, but it is arguably related to it. Some 68-percent of the sum falls under the Federal Reserve's umbrella, while another 16 percent is the under the Troubled Asset Relief Program, TARP, as defined under the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act, signed into law in early October. The TARP alone is bigger than virtually any other US government endeavor dating back to the Louisiana Purchase.

Paulson backs off asset plan; crisis deals at risk

Secretary Henry Paulson, in the most explicit sign yet that Treasury was abandoning its initial plan for the rescue funds, said on Wednesday he preferred a second round of capital injections into financial companies to help them weather the worst market crisis in 80 years.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Remember back when that Bailout was illegally shoved through Congress? Paulson joined a chorus of others that told Congress and the taxpayers that unless the government used taxpayer dollars to purchase those toxic assets, that ultimate doom was upon us all.

Now that they HAVE their loot, that "crisis" seems to have gone away.

Paulson resists Democrats' call to rescue homeowners

Treasury Secretary Henry M. Paulson told unhappy congressional Democrats on Tuesday that, barring a new catastrophe, the Bush administration intended to stand pat on its existing effort to stabilize financial markets -- and leave the next stage of economic recovery to the new administration.

Having committed about half of the existing $700-billion rescue fund to ease Wall Street's credit crunch, Paulson said he had no plans to spend the rest, even on the root cause of the crisis -- soaring mortgage foreclosures.

Retail sales suffer record drop

U.S. retail sales in October suffered the worst monthly drop on record as more Americans shunned discretionary purchases amid accelerating job losses in a worsening economy.

As factories close, Chinese workers suffer

Wang Denggui, father of three, arrived more than a year ago in the palm-lined streets of this southern Chinese town with a single goal: toil in a factory to save for his children's school tuition.

But the plans of Wang and thousands of co-workers unraveled at noon on Nov. 1, when the Taiwan chairman of their ailing shoe factory climbed over a factory wall to flee the country and his debts. That left several U.S. shoe companies with unfilled orders and 2,000 workers without jobs.

"He just ran without telling anyone," Wang said.

Barack Obama:

Barack Obama : Une victoire programmée par le Nouvel Ordre Mondial ?

Obama vows Iraq exit, to rebuild U.S. 'moral stature'

Obama Says He Will Do `Whatever It Takes' on Economy

Webmaster's Commentary:

Apparently that does NOT include shutting down the Federal Reserve and giving the power to issue money back to the Treasury Department as the Constitution intended.
From Obama's quotes, he plans to simply continue the policy of hyper-inflation, printing up cash and handing it out to corporations in vast quantities until it is so worthless the bankers will feel comfortable letting us have a tiny bit of it again.

Obama Pushes Carbon Tax Proposal That Would Inflict New Great Depression

The Environmental Protection Agency’s economic analysis of the bill forecast that a whopping $2.9 trillion would be shaved off the economy by the year 2050 if the legislation was enacted. It would also reduce GDP by 6.9 percent - a figure comparable with the economic meltdown of 1929 and 1930, and millions of jobs would have been lost within the first 10 years of its passage.

Webmaster's Commentary:

See also Arctic Blast Set To Freeze Britain

Blizzards are predicted for Scotland and most of the eastern coast of England, where temperatures could drop as low as -5C.

The Met Office is warning of heavy snow showers and biting winds of up to 70mph in exposed coastal and hilly areas.

UK to auction carbon permits

The UK government is to auction carbon emissions permits to power firms in a sale projected to raise between 1.5 and 2bn euros (£1.2-1.6bn) by 2014.

Webmaster's Commentary:

I keep telling you, folks; this whole global warming scam is just another excuse to impose a new tax, which in this case will be passed onto the consumers via higher rates.

Obama Will Overturn Unconstitutional Bush Laws In First 100 Days

'I would call my attorney general in and review every single executive order issued by George Bush and overturn those laws or executive decisions that I feel violate the constitution,' said Obama Other goals for his first 100 days: work out a plan to withdraw troops from Iraq; make progress on alternative energy plans and launch legislation to reform the health care system.

Obama advisers: Harsh interrogators will walk

Even as President-elect Obama vowed "to regain America's moral stature in the world" during Sunday's 60 Minutes appearance, two of his senior advisers confessed there is no intent to pursue those in the Bush administration who engaged in torture.

Speaking on condition of anonymity to the Associated Press, the advisers said that the plan is to put a stop to current interrogation methods and to "look forward" as opposed to focusing on prior transgressions.

The Obama transition team did not offer a response before the report was published.

On Saturday it was also revealed that senior intelligence officials are lobbying President Bush to preemptively pardon intelligence agents who committed war crimes: an unprecedented act.

Webmaster's Commentary:

The whole point of the Nuremberg trials was that "I am only following orders" was not a sufficient excuse for tortures and other war criminals to evade punishment for their actions.

Obama's credibility as the harbinger of change will crumble if he fails to hold the people responsible for this travesty to account.

Obama Warned of ‘Spectacular’ al-Qaeda Attack During Transition

There may be no concrete evidence of a specific plot in the offing, but political leaders and intelligence officials in both the US and Britain are warning President-elect Barack Obama that his fledgling administration may be an appealing target for a ’spectacular’ attack by al-Qaeda, as it struggles to handle a wartime transition of power.

Webmaster's Commentary:


The only people who would want to stage a "terror" attack during the inauguration are the people who do not want Obama to alter the current pro-war policy of the US.

You know, THESE "Al Qaeda".

Obama Warned Of Huge al Qeada Threat

Barack Obama is being given ominous advice from leaders on both sides of the Atlantic to brace himself for an early assault from terrorists.

Webmaster's Commentary:

You know, THESE "Al Qaeda" (nudge nudge wink wink)

Al Qaeda still threatening US: CIA

The head of the American Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) says Al Qaeda remains the single greatest threat to the United States.

Webmaster's Commentary:

"No. Really. They are! So, ummm, you gotta cut the budget somewhere else. I mean, if you cut MY budget, Al Qaeda will GITCHA!!!!"

Austrian Government Study Confirms Genetically Modified (GM) Crops Threaten Human Fertility and Health Safety

A long-term feeding study commissioned by the Austrian Agency for Health and Food Safety, managed by the Austrian Federal Ministry of Health, Family and Youth, and carried out by Veterinary University Vienna, confirms genetically modified (GM) corn seriously affects reproductive health in mice. Non-GMO advocates, who have warned about this infertility link along with other health risks, now seek an immediate ban of all GM foods and GM crops to protect the health of humankind and the fertility of women around the world.

3 to 4.3 Billion Barrels of Technically Recoverable Oil Assessed in North Dakota and Montana’s Bakken Formation

North Dakota and Montana have an estimated 3.0 to 4.3 billion barrels of undiscovered, technically recoverable oil in an area known as the Bakken Formation.

A U.S. Geological Survey assessment, released April 10, shows a 25-fold increase in the amount of oil that can be recovered compared to the agency's 1995 estimate of 151 million barrels of oil.

IPCC Scientists Caught Producing False Data To Push Global Warming

Climate scientists allied with the IPCC have been caught citing fake data to make the case that global warming is accelerating, a shocking example of mass public deception that could spell the beginning of the end for the acceptance of man-made climate change theories.

On Monday, NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS), run by Al Gore’s chief scientific ally, Dr James Hansen, announced that last month was the hottest October on record.

“This was startling,” reports the London Telegraph. “Across the world there were reports of unseasonal snow and plummeting temperatures last month, from the American Great Plains to China, and from the Alps to New Zealand. China’s official news agency reported that Tibet had suffered its “worst snowstorm ever”. In the US, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration registered 63 local snowfall records and 115 lowest-ever temperatures for the month, and ranked it as only the 70th-warmest October in 114 years.”

It soon came to light that the data produced by NASA to make the claim, and in particular temperature records covering large areas of Russia, was merely carried over from the previous month. NASA had used temperature records from the naturally hotter month of September and claimed they represented temperature figures in October.

When NASA was confronted with this glaring error, they then attempted to compensate for the lower temperatures in Russia by claiming they had discovered a new “hotspot” in the Arctic, despite satellite imagery clearly showing that Arctic sea ice had massively expanded its coverage by 30 per cent, an area the size of Germany, since summer 2007.

The figures published by Dr Hansen’s institute are one of the primary sets of data used by the IPCC to promote its case for man-made global warming and they are widely quoted because they consistently show higher temperatures than other figures.

“Yet last week’s latest episode is far from the first time Dr Hansen’s methodology has been called in question,” reports the Telegraph. “In 2007 he was forced by Mr Watts and Mr McIntyre to revise his published figures for US surface temperatures, to show that the hottest decade of the 20th century was not the 1990s, as he had claimed, but the 1930s.”

The world has never seen such freezing heat

A surreal scientific blunder last week raised a huge question mark about the temperature records that underpin the worldwide alarm over global warming. On Monday, Nasa's Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS), which is run by Al Gore's chief scientific ally, Dr James Hansen, and is one of four bodies responsible for monitoring global temperatures, announced that last month was the hottest October on record.

Sunspots spell end of climate myth

The evidence is unequivocal. Measurable, let alone dangerous, manmade global warming is not happening, and is not likely to happen in the future. The major cause for concern is the possibility of severe cooling.

Global climate has always changed and recent climate changes are not unusual. The world was warmer in the mediaeval warm period, in the Roman warm period and on many occasions before then. During these periods agriculture and civilisations flourished. During cold periods like the little ice age there was famine, plague and war.

Global warning: We are actually heading towards a new Ice Age, claim scientists

It has plagued scientists and politicians for decades, but scientists now say global warming is not the problem.

We are actually heading for the next Ice Age, they claim.

Webmaster's Commentary:

"Okay, okay, so the global warming and carbon tax credit thing didn't work out. But here's the new plan. We drop the global warming part, because we started looking silly when they figured out we put our temperature sensors right where the air conditioners were blowing heat anyway, and we focus on renewable energy, then we lobby to pass a renewable energy tax which will have renewable energy tax credits, which we can then buy and sell through the same brokerage we were going to use for the carbon tax credits! We still make out like bandits!" -- Al Bore

Sea Ice Growing at Fastest Pace on Record

An abnormally cool Arctic is seeing dramatic changes to ice levels. In sharp contrast to the rapid melting seen last year, the amount of global sea ice has rebounded sharply and is now growing rapidly. The total amount of ice, which set a record low value last year, grew in October at the fastest pace since record-keeping began in 1979.
