Murdering America

In the immortal words of Monty Python, America is “not dead yet.”

Guest post by Robert Gore at Straight Line Logic

There are many ways to murder; depravity encounters no limits to its diabolical designs. A dramatic staple: a trusted friend or relative administers gradually increasing quantities of an undetectable poison as a formerly vigorous victim inexplicably wastes, withers and finally succumbs. An unsuspecting or corrupt coroner closes the case, official cause of death a long illness. The murderer gets the estate, until the decedent’s devoted fill-in-the-blank starts asking questions and nosing around, suspicion mounts, and the heinous homicide is exposed.

Such will be the plot line when the story is written of America’s murder. In its prime, the victim met every challenge. After a devastating and ruinous war against itself, America built the world’s most prosperous economy, providing opportunities and better lives for millions. Full of ambition and energy, America became a hotbed of innovation and an industrial powerhouse, the nation that gave birth to the terms “consumer,” “middle class,” and their essential antecedent, “the work ethic.”

S.Q.O.T.D. —- Dollahs fer Donald

It takes about a billion dollars to run a National POTUS campaign. Donald has it.  Says he could sell a building.  But, he doesn’t want to. He’s going to accept money from other people.

Q1:  Are you disappointed?  After all, he’s been making this huge big deal all this time about being self-funded, and how he is beholden to no one. Fukdahum! I guess now that real money is involved, he’s changing his tune.

Q2:  You gonna send the billionaire some of your money?

——— if yes, how much?

——— if yes, don’t you feel like a sucker?

Gold vs Stocks - 2016 Performance

All of the government’s monetary, economic and political power, as well as its extensive propaganda machinery, will be enlisted in a constant battle to drive down the price of gold – but in the absence of any fundamental change in the nation’s monetary, fiscal, and economic direction, simply regard any major retreat in the price of gold as an unexpected buying opportunity.

Evil Is Weak

Evil Is Weak

EvilIsWeak

For clarity, let’s define “evil” as “the willful abuse of other humans.”

By this definition, any person or persons who purposely manipulate other humans to their own ends – anything from tricking them into a bad business deal to extorting money from them to murdering them – are engaging in evil.

Evil Almighty?

From television, politicians, and endless “authorities,” we learn that evil is pre-eminent. God may be supremely powerful, but he’s powerful somewhere far away; Satan is powerful here. We can slide into evil with ease, but being good is difficult. Western man is convinced that darkness is stronger than light, whether he defines it in religious terms or secular terms.

The fear-sellers, we must admit, have won the day.

This primacy of fear and darkness is necessary to authority of course; without it, how would we be driven into their arms?

So, when someone comes along and calls evil a weakling, we think they’re a bit crazy, and maybe we worry that the devil might notice and chop them down.

TTIP—American Economic Imperialism

Guest Post by Paul Craig Roberts

Greenpeace has done that part of the world whose representatives are so corrupt or so stupid as to sign on to the Trans-Pacific and Trans-Atlantic “partnerships” a great service. Greenpeace secured and leaked the secret TTIP documents that Washington and global corporations are pushing on Europe. The official documents prove that my description of these “partnerships” when they first appeared in the news is totally correct.

These so-called “free trade agreements” are not trade agreements. The purpose of the “partnerships,” which were drafted by global corporations, is to make corporations immune to the laws of soverign countries in which they do business. Any country’s sovereign law whether social, environmental, food safety, labor protections—any law or regulation—that impacts a corporation’s profits is labeled a “restraint on trade.” The “partnerships” permit corporations to file a suit that overturns the law or regulation and also awards the corporation damages paid by the taxpayers of the country that tried to protect its environment or the safety of its food and workers.

The law suit is not heard in the courts of the country or in any court. It is heard in a corporate tribunal in which corporations serve as judge, jury, and prosecutor.

In other words, the “partnerships” give global corporations the power to overturn democratic outcomes. Allegedly, Europe consists of democracies. Democracies pass laws protecting the environment and the safety of food and labor, but these laws democratically enacted reduce profits. Anything less than a sweatshop, with starvation wages, no environmental protection, no safety legislation for food or worker, can be overturned at will by global corporations under the terms of the “partnerships.”

Only a traitor, a well paid one, could sign such a pact.

I’m proposing a follow-up to Stuckey’s QOTD, Isn’t is BETTER to go through life fat, dumb, and happy?

Here’s my question:

The key to understanding our reality is as simple as assembling a 10 piece puzzle. Unfortunately, some asshole dumped 10,000 pieces into the box containing these 10 pieces. What are these 10 most important puzzle pieces?

Some of my puzzle pieces are:

1. Government is inherently corrupt, incompetent and evil.

2. He who controls the fiat money controls the government.

3. Separation of economy and State are required for freedom to exist; the founders of the USSA got this wrong!

4. We are born with an innate intellectual curiosity. The true purpose of mass education is to eliminate our ability to think for ourselves.

5. Debt is slavery.

6. Almost all wars are initiated by false flag events.

7. Democracy is two wolves and a sheep voting on what’s for dinner. You are the sheep.

What are yours?

Guest Post by Karl Denninger

 

Is that the sun I see this morning?

It might be.

Look folks, I don’t trust Trump.  Then again I don’t trust politicians generally, no matter who they are, simply because they have a proven record of lying and yet while their lies are never punished ours are turned into felonies whenever those they empower are asking the questions — including themselves!

So here’s the challenge before us: As I’ve pointed out repeatedly in these pages since 2009 when the health care debate came into the forefront of American politics, and turned into Obamacare, we have only two choices fiscally as a nation:

1. Enforce the law against hospitals, doctors, pharmaceutical firms and those running clinics and diagnostic centers.

OR

2. Our nation will be fiscally and, in all probability politically destroyed.

This is not hyperbole.  It is arithmetic.

Anyone denying arithmetic is not only a fool they’re both a tyrant and a thief.

To those who claim to be “conservative” yet who have failed to act on this matter for the last three decades: You’re liars, thieves, tyrants and unfit to be citizens of this nation — you most-certainly are not conservative.  Deliberately subverting the rule of law, whether done by action or intentional inaction, disqualifies you on all counts.

To those who claim to be “evangelicals” or “Christians” yet who have failed to act on this matter for the last three decades: You are not Christian; no person who is can permit the sort of ravenous theft and fraud that has driven the expansion of this racket to nearly a full 20% of our economy.  You are Satanists to an individual and that’s a fact. Either repent here and now or own and be proud of your serpent behavior.
