Obama’s Meaningless ISIL Speech: His Real Targets Are Not Islamic Terrorists

obamaISIS-speech

Obama’s speech about ISIS Jihadists last night was pathetic. Meanwhile the Government ratchets up a potential crackdown on Obama’s political opponents.

John hits another out of the park on analysis of Obama’s pathetic speech in light of what has been going on for the last few weeks in our government and has some words of warning to consider.

In a week that it was revealed that 5 other IRS agents under congressional subpoena regarding the IRS scandal ‘lost’ their e-mails and computer hard drives; on a day the IRS head Koskinen says to the investigative committee “we follow the law wherever we can” – and in the same timeframe we learn that yet another Conservative media outlet is under an open-ended IRS audit – we have more to fear from Obama and this federal government than we do from any terrorist organization anywhere on the planet.

 

Obama’s False Flag Speech Tonight

by John Galt
September 10, 2014 19:00 ET

GULF_OF_TONKIN_tn

Tonight, on the eve of another anniversary for 9-11, the current President of the United States will be giving a speech about the threat of ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria or IS for short) where a new American strategy for dealing with this terrorist army will be outlined after he stated several days ago that he didn’t have one. Several months ago in fact, the President called ISIS the “JV team” in one of his numerous infamous quotes and since that time they have carved out what amounts to a small nation in Eastern Syria and Western Iraq.

The issue of ISIS however, is not the key point to the speech tonight. If ISIS were truly a serious threat to US interests, aka, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, then our “allies” in the region would request that the United States position more troops into Kuwait and Jordan to protect those kingdoms and  to cut off any advance towards the House of Saud.  Meanwhile, many questions about this speech and American policy towards ISIS will not be answered by this administration nor our “allies” in the region:

1. If the United States is aware that ISIS is now in possession of approximately 30 M1 Abrams tanks, why have we not destroyed them with an air strike by now? Theoretically one would hope that the U.S. would install a “kill switch” such as those used by American rental car companies just in case a vehicle is stolen, or at least some type of GPS tracking at a minimum once the weapons were left for the Iraqi military.

2. Why are Western governments in Europe and including the United States announcing any types of sanctions for those countries aiding and abetting the ISIS cause? There is ample evidence within the mainstream media that Qatar is acting as the finance and banking arm for the Islamic State yet not one word has been uttered about cutting off trade or even a small threat of sanctions from any nation except for Saudi Arabia (see: Saudi threatens to block Qatar’s land, sea borders from this posting about Saudi-Qatari relations: Is Saudi Arabia Preparing to Invade Qatar?).

3. There is demonstrable evidence that Turkey, a NATO member nation, has also been arming and training ISIS forces yet the silence from Brussels, London, and Washington has been deafening. Will President Obama announce an initiative to cut off the supply of arms and soldiers migrating from Turkish territory into Iraq and Syria tonight? I seriously doubt it.

Thus one has to wonder if the real purpose of President Obama’s speech tonight is to provide the usual distraction and scare tactics to spook the American people with another CIA trained terrorism force. The headline on the Drudge Report this afternoon provides a most interesting insight into DHS’s mindset before Obama speaks tonight:

DRUDGE_091014jgfla

From the story at Drudge at the headline above from the Washington Times this evening:

Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said his department will be issuing new guidance to retailers this week giving them pointers on how to spot potential terrorists among their customers by looking at what they’re buying.

While saying the government cannot prohibit sales of some everyday materials, Mr. Johnson said retailers should be trained to look for anyone who buys a lot from what he described as a “long list of materials that could be used as explosive precursors.”

He said it was an extension of the “If you see something, say something” campaign launched by his predecessor, former Secretary Janet Napolitano, which tries to enlist average Americans to be aware of their immediate environment.

“We can’t and we shouldn’t prohibit the sale of a pressure cooker. We can sensitize retail businesses to be on guard for suspicious behavior by those who buy this kind of stuff,” Mr. Johnson said during a question-and-answer session after a speech at the Council on Foreign Relations.

In other words, if one buys gunpowder for use in black powder hunting or reloading of ammunition, ammunition in quantity of any caliber, or household chemicals which some individuals buy in bulk to save money for their home and businesses (multi-location use), odds are one might just find themselves on any number of Obama’s DHS “watch lists” as a possible domestic terrorist threat.

The article above from the Times in fact supports a story published by the Washington Free Beaconon August 29, 2014 (see: FBI National Domestic Threat Assessment Omits Islamist Terrorism ) where the alarming revelation of the omission of Islamist terror appears to be more insidious when this portion of Bill Gertz’s story is taken into consideration with the excerpt published above:

Instead, the internal FBI intelligence report concluded in its 2013 assessment published this month that the threat to U.S. internal security from extremists is limited to attacks and activities by eight types of domestic extremist movements—none motivated by radical Islam.

They include anti-government militia groups and white supremacy extremists, along with “sovereign citizen” nationalists, and anarchists. Other domestic threat groups outlined by the FBI assessment include violent animal rights and environmentalist extremists, black separatists, anti- and pro-abortion activists, and Puerto Rican nationalists.

“Domestic extremist violence continues to be unpredictable and, at times, severe,” the report states.

This appears to validate that the government might indeed be secretly concerned about ISIS and Islamist terrorism but the temptation to secretly allow a terror attack to occur, committed by radical Muslim militants falsely tied to the Patriot Movement, Tea Party, or other pro-Constitutional groups is no longer the realm of conspiracy theorists or websites.

One must take into consideration the long standing hostility of this regime towards its own citizens and the potential that tonight’s speech has nothing to do with ISIS or their actions overseas; instead it would appear a scare tactic to justify a brutal crackdown on all Americans who do not share the views of the predominate political parties and their elites, all in the name of protecting the people.

Beware my friends, as we now live in one of the most dangerous periods of our history where liberty’s light can be extinguished by the fictional assignment of guilt and national hysteria, much like other dictatorships and oligarchs have used to crush their citizens throughout history.

No Such Thing As “Moderate Islam”. Such Is a Construct Of The Secular Left

coexistslayer

Moderate Islam isn’t what most Muslims believe. It’s what most ignorant liberals in the West believe that Muslims believe.

The Arabic adage says that the ‘enemy of my enemy is my friend’, which goes to explain the unholy alliance between Radical Islam and Radical Secular Leftists.  They hate the affluent West and especially the Great and little Satan that represent the affluent Democracies  that showcase the failure of Islam as a benevolent religion on the planet.

We have heard endlessly from the Praetorian Media that most of the billions of Muslims on the planet are ‘moderate’ and Jihadists who cut off heads of bound but alive Westerners with steak knives is simply a small fraction of ‘radicals’.  That of course is a lie because like Global Warming, ‘Moderate Islam’ is a fairy tale construct of the Left.  Daniel Greenfield explains it perfectly.

Moderate Islam is Our New Religion

I have been searching for moderate Islam since September 11 and just like a lost sock in the dryer, it was in the last place I expected it to be.

There is no moderate Islam in the mosques or in Mecca. You won’t find it in the Koran or the Hadiths. If you want to find moderate Islam, browse the newspaper editorials after a terrorist attack or take a course on Islamic religion taught by a Unitarian Sociologist wearing fake native jewelry.

You can’t find a moderate Islam in Saudi Arabia or Iran, but you can find it in countless network news specials, articles and books about the two homelands of their respective brands of Islam.

You won’t find the fabled land of moderate Muslims in the east. You won’t even find it in the west. Like all myths it exists in the imagination of those who tell the stories. You won’t find a moderate Islam in the Koran, but you will find it in countless Western books about Islam.

Moderate Islam isn’t what most Muslims believe. It’s what most liberals believe that Muslims believe.

The new multicultural theology of the West is moderate Islam. Moderate Islam is the perfect religion for a secular age since it isn’t a religion at all.

Take Islam, turn it inside out and you have moderate Islam. Take a Muslim who hasn’t been inside a mosque in a year, who can name the entire starting lineup of the San Diego Chargers, but can’t name Mohammed’s companions and you have a moderate Muslim. Or more accurately, a secular Muslim.

An early generation of Western leaders sought the affirmation of their national destinies in the divine. This generation of Western leaders seeks the affirmation of their secular liberalism in a moderate Islam.

Even if they have to make it up.

Without a moderate Islam the Socialist projects of Europe which depend on heavy immigration collapse. America’s War on Terror becomes the endless inescapable slog that the rise of ISIS has once again revealed it to be. Multiculturalism, post-nationalism and Third World Guiltism all implode.

Without moderate Muslims, nationalism returns, borders close and the right wins. That is what they fear.

If there is no moderate Islam, no moderate Mohammed, no moderate Allah, then the Socialist Kingdom of Heaven on Earth has to go in the rubbish bin. The grand coalitions in which LGBT activists and Islamists scream at Jews over Gaza aren’t the future; they’re the Weimar Republic on wheels.

Flash back to Obama in his tan suit wearily saying that he has no strategy for ISIS. The original plan was to capture Osama alive, give him a civilian trial, cut a deal with the moderate Taliban and announce the end of the War on Terror before the midterm elections.

So much for that.

Moderate Islam is a difficult faith. To believe in it you have to disregard over a thousand years of recorded history, theology, demographics and just about everything that predates 1965. You have to ignore the bearded men chopping off heads because they don’t represent the majority of Muslims.

Neither does Mohammed, who did his own fair share of headchopping.

The real Islam is a topic that non-Muslims of no faith who hold sacred only the platitudes of a post-everything society are eager to lecture on without knowing anything about it.

Their Islam is not the religion of Mohammed, the Koran, the Hadiths, the Caliphs or its practitioners in such places as Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Iran, Iraq or Indonesia. Their Islam is a religion that does not exist, but that they fervently believe must exist because without it their way of life is as doomed as the dodo.

They aren’t Muslims. They have no faith in Allah or the Koran. Instead they have faith in the goodness of an Islam that exists without resort to scriptures, theology or deity. This may seem strange to actual believers, but after all their own poor tattered scraps of Christianity or Judaism don’t bother paying too much attention to deities or scriptures except when it comes to cherry-picking quotes about tolerance.

Is it any wonder that they treat Islam the same way?

The true moderate Muslims are secular liberals of loosely Christian and Jewish persuasion who have invented and believe in a moderate Islam that doesn’t exist outside of their own heads. This secular Islam, which values all life, is dedicated to social justice and universal tolerance, is a counterpart of their own bastardized religions. And they are too afraid to wake up and realize that it doesn’t exist.

When American and European leaders insist that Islam has nothing to do with the latest Islamic atrocity, they are not referencing a religion practiced by Muslims, but an imaginary religion that they imagine Muslims must practice because the alternative is the end of everything that they believe in.

Their moderate Islam is light on the details, beyond standing for social justice, fighting Global Warming and supporting gay rights, because it is really multiculturalism wearing a fake beard. When a Western leader claims that the latest batch of Islamic terrorists don’t speak for Islam, he isn’t defending Muslims, he’s defending multiculturalism. He assumes that Muslims believe in multiculturalism because he does.

Moderate Islam is just multiculturalism misspelled. Its existence is a firm article of faith for those who believe in multiculturalism.

Dissuading a believer in moderate Muslims from his invented faith by citing the long trail of corpses or the hateful Hadiths that call for mass murder is futile because these are not the roots of his religion. He doesn’t know what a Hadith is nor does he care. As a social justice man in good standing, he attributes the violent track record of Islam to European colonialism and oppression.

He has never read the Koran. He has read a thousand articles about how Muslims are oppressed at the airport, in Gaza, in Burma and in Bugs Bunny cartoons. They are his new noble savages and he will not hear a word against them. Having colonized their identities in his imagination (despite the marked up copy of Edward Said’s Orientalism that he keeps by his bedside) he treats them as reflections of his ego.

When you say that moderate Muslims don’t exist, you are calling him a bad person. When you challenge Islam, you are attacking multiculturalism and he will call you a racist, regardless of the fact that Islam is as much of a race as Communism, Nazism or the Mickey Mouse Fan Club were races.

The moderate Muslim is an invention of the liberal academic, the secular theologian, the vapid politician and his shrill idiot cousin, the political activist. Like the money in the budgets that underpin their plans and the scientific evidence for Global Warming, he does not exist.

And it is not necessary that he should exist. It is only necessary that we have faith in his existence.

The degraded lefty descendants of Christians and Jews wait for a moderate Muslim messiah who will reconcile the impossibilities of their multicultural society by healing the conflicts between Islam and the West. Until then they find him, it necessary to believe, not in a divinity, but in the moderate Muslim.

Decline And Fall: Twilight In America

Decline-and-fall

The historical similarities of Rome’s Decline and Fall with current America are astounding.  You are witness to a collapse of an entire society into ruin.

Those who forget history are doomed to repeat it.

So we are repeating the fall of Rome, Greece, Pre-Revolutionary France while giving rise to Mussolini’s Italy, Stalin’s Soviet and Hitler’s Reich, all rolled together into one massive beast.

The following essay by Dr. Clyde Wilson who notes the historical parallels we are living at an exponential level, is truly sobering given the implications.

tatteredglory

Decline and Fall

Clyde Wilson

I am very far from original in noticing similarities in the histories of Rome and America—republics that became empires.  The decline and fall of the former has often been thought to foretell the fate of the latter.  A Frenchman some years ago wrote a fairly convincing book called The Coming Caesars.  Such analogies are interesting and suggestive but should not be put forward too dogmatically.  History does repeat itself because human nature remains the same and because civilized people build institutions that then perpetuate themselves for their own sake rather than for the purpose for which they were established.  Power-seeking, luxury, debauchery, irresponsibility, and sloth are ever present and are held in check only for brief and extraordinary periods by Christianity or patriotism.  Still, the recurrences of past patterns are never exactly the same.  The more intimately one knows a past time, the more cautious one becomes in sweeping generalizations.  All large events, like the fall of Rome or the American war of 1861-65, have multiple “causes”—some deep, and some circumstantial.  Indeed, sweeping generalizations about history by people who don’t know what they are talking about are a major blight on American discourse.

The decline and fall of Rome has been blamed on enervating luxury, moral debauchery, imperial overreach, dilution of the founding stock, multiculturalism, bad economic policy, replacement of citizen soldiers by foreign mercenaries, lead poisoning, and, if you believe Gibbon, Christianity.  Such weaknesses left the empire prey to our “barbaric” ancestors.  Dr. Thomas Fleming is my infallible authority on all things classical, and I defer to and welcome his correction.  But as I read it, one of the observable phenomena in the decline of Rome is that republican institutions were maintained in name when they had been entirely transformed in substance.  The senate continued long after it had lost all power.  It no longer represented the interests of a real society but, like the American Congress today, was an appendage of the emperor.  The fiction was maintained that the emperor was only the first among equals.  And yet, like the American president, he was ranked by many among the gods.

Doesn’t that describe the state that the American government has reached today?  The U.S. Constitution continues to receive lip service, when it has all but ceased to exist.  The Framers and ratifiers of the Constitution would not recognize today’s federal government as having any relation to the instrument they created.  All three branches of the federal government have committed violations of fundamental law that are as bad as Julius Caesar’s crossing of the Rubicon.  Obama and his predecessor have ruled essentially as elected emperors who may do anything without any effective opposition.  The Congress has become a rubber stamp of the executive, and the Supreme Court the maker of far-reaching laws.

All that remains is for the emperor to rule for life.  Third World dictators do so, and the widespread adulation of Obama definitely has aspects of Third World leader-worship.  Why can’t Obama be elected again and again?  All it would take is for the Supreme Court to suspend or overrule the constitutional amendment limiting presidents to two terms.  Such a ruling would be no more extreme in reasoning and usurpation than many rulings already made and enforced.  A large majority of Congress would fall down and worship rather than put up an opposition that might make them unpopular or threaten their power and perks.

America today bears many of the characteristics that have been checked off as causes of the decline and fall of Rome.  Bread and circuses (multiple forms of welfare, television, sports), imperial overreach, replacement of the founding population with foreigners, concentration of wealth into fewer and fewer hands.  Surely, one of the observable clues to Roman decline was the proletarianization of the population.  Indeed, the term prole originates with Rome as a description of the propertyless.  The sturdy yeoman class—attached to land and hearth, household gods, and republican virtue—departed or disappeared into the impoverished, multicultural, and dependent urban mob or imperial wars.  At the same time the wealthy and well placed became ever more wealthy and more lacking in civic character.  You can certainly see here analog to present American reality.  The proletarianization of the upper-middle, middle, and working classes is the most important major trend of our time.  For the first time in American history the promise of the “land of opportunity” has become a bad joke.

One thing about this has puzzled and troubled me.  How could the traditionally wealthy and powerful ruling class of Rome so readily exploit and discard the general mass of their fellow citizens, not in the least regretting their disappearance or understanding the social costs?  Wouldn’t the wealthy and powerful naturally have some fellow feeling, some allegiance to their countrymen of the middle classes with whom they long shared a civic, religious, and military tradition?

I was, as usual, too idealistic and too attached to a dead tradition of a responsible Southern aristocracy of Washington, Jefferson, and Lee.  Observing America today has cured me of such foolishness.  I understand how it happened because I see it happening now.  Our wealthy and powerful class is no less ruthless, selfish, and shortsighted than the Roman.  Wealth is becoming more and more concentrated into fewer hands, and the wealthy are becoming ever less responsible and patriotic and attached to their fellow citizens.  This is decline and fall without a doubt, and nobody even notices or gives a damn.

Please take note, Mr. Lincoln.  Government of the people, by the people, and for the people is indeed perishing from the earth.

The Rule of Law Is Dead In America

Constitution-Dead

Obama’s latest bypassing of Congress to implement a Climate Change Treaty by decree illustrates there is now only Rulers and the Ruled

I have been working for the last few weeks on an essay series related to what a moral and religious remnant must understand in the light of current events and politics under the Obama regime.

The affronts to what is left of our Constitutional Republic are happening now daily – almost to the point we cannot keep up with them.  We reel from yesterday’s affronts while new ones break today.  Americans are growing weary of outrage – as the tripwires to prevent despotic tyranny via the checks and balances instituted in our government system are compromised, ignored or overthrown altogether.   Most of the Federal Representatives in Congress have decided to go along with this velvet coup, because they know where the power is going to lie and they want a seat at the table so they can pass their hat and have our money thrown in it.

This is all by design – a technique of attrition to trod any resistance into surrender and capitulation.

What it lays before us in raw form, is the undeniable fact that the rule of law in America is dead.  There is now only law made or agreed to by the rulers to be imposed on those of us they rule.

Karl Denninger at Market Ticker just posted an excellent opening entree to the essays I have been working on and will post soon.

The Impending Catastrophe

It’s not difficult to see this coming, if you bother to look.

There is no rule of law any more if you’re a government employee — or one of those protected by same.

Let’s put together just a partial list:

  • Health care.  Monopoly and/or cartel behavior of any sort is supposed to be illegal under 15 USC (Sherman and Clayton Acts) if market power exists.  When you’re flat on your ass with a heart attack in process there is no market; ergo, it exists.  Ditto when you were just stung by a scorpion, or when the so-called “treating facility” refuses to present you with a price before they have you on the operating table — and they told you that the operation was immediately necessary to save your health and/or life.  That’s essentially all procedures except for elective, cosmetic ones — where there is actual competition and prices have fallen over time.  All of this behavior, from charging $60,000 for two $100 vials of scorpion antivenom, charging someone $9,000 to bandage a finger or billing a routine $10-30 test at $10,000 is part and parcel of this, and in any unprotected line of business everyone involved would do 10 years of prison time and be fined $1 million each.
  • Government agencies, such as the IRS and NSA.  The number of times that have been documented in which perjury has been committed, a crime, (cough-Clapper-cough!) is too long to list.  We now find out that in the IRS targeting investigation not only is there a backup of Lerner’s computer (as I originally asserted there had to be) but IRS lawyers admitted to the intentional destruction of the data on her BlackBerry after the investigation began.  For you or I that would immediately result in an obstruction of justice felony charge leveled against everyone involved – including Lerner herself.  Well, where is it?
  • Education.  Cartel behavior at its finest.  You can find virtually any sort of knowledge and lectures on any topic you wish online nowdays.  Yet without obtaining them at a price infinitely higher than those freely available, the exact same material I might add and often delivered by the exact same professors, your knowledge is deemed immaterial and worthless.  This occurs due to cartel behavior between universities and businesses — again, something that should bring immediate prosecution under 15 USC.  Well, where is it?
  • Education again.  Not content to try to force you to pay them something they also conspire to force you to pay more.  Once you’re a captive sucker you get hammered on all sides; you are first told to file a FASFA in which your parents must disclose their assets and income, never mind that you’re an adult.  Then, if you’re not poor, despite this being sold to you as being a means of obtaining “aid”, you are offered only loans, which are not aid at all.  This particular cartel behaviorincludes the government as they will attempt to force you to file one even to claim things they say are earned, such as “Bright Futures” scholarships!  Once you get to class it’s even worse; your son or daughter who paid the full price (and had to borrow the money and thus pay interest too!) is sitting next to a kid who paid little or nothing.  How?  Your son or daughter was effectively forced to buy his tuition!  Communism at its finest, all at gunpoint.
  • So-called “law enforcement.”  Point a gun at another person when you are not legally permitted to shoot (e.g. to stop a forcible felony in process) and you are arrested and charged with assault with a deadly weapon (or aggravated assault in some jurisdictions.)  The identical behavior was documented on video and still camera images all over Ferguson by the police; where are the indictments?
  • Banks.  Swindle someone out of $10,000 and it’s grand theft, extortion, fraud or any one of a dozen other crimes, all serious felonies.  Hell, all you have to do is a pass a bad check in many jurisdictions to wind up on the wrong end of a felony indictment!  It has been proved that myriad large banks sold securities to customers representing them as “good investments” when in fact their own internal emails document that their staff called them “vomit” (and other similar names) — that is, they knew they were worthless.  Where are the indictments?
  • The Federal Reserve.  The Federal Reserve Act specifically charges the FOMC with regulating both money and credit so as to maintain stable prices, moderate long term interest rates and maximum employment.  Maximum employment may be a loosely-defined goal as may “moderate” long-term interest rates but stable is not a fuzzy word.  The Federal Reserve has willfully and intentionally violated this mandate serially since its inception.  You have about 3-4% of your earnings powerstolen every single year as a consequence.  Where are the indictments?
  • Ben Bernanke has admitted that (in his view) virtually all systemically important financial firms were on the edge of collapse in 2008.  This, he cites, is justification for his extraordinary policy moves.  There’s a problem — his mandate is to regulate said money and credit systems all the time, not just in a crisis.  That filing is an admission that both he and the NY Fed failed to do so; that is, they failed to perform their statutory duty.  Why aren’t both he and Tim Geithner in prison, seeing as he made this admission before a court in a sworn filing?

Here’s the problem with this sort of behavior and the protection of same: Civility in general only exists because you, I, and most of the rest of society willingly conform our behavior to the law.  

There are not enough cops, no matter what sort of badge and uniform they wear, to enforce the law otherwise.  If any material percentage of the population decides to behave as these people in their protected circumstances have and do the entirety of law and order collapses instantly.

Well, why is it that you permit the above to occur?  Why did you allow it to develop?  Why do you still allow it?

And how long will it before all of this theft and fraud renders you unable to keep your head above water?

Let me explain that for you: For most people you’re already unable.

Look at the stock market, as one example.  There is more margin debt outstanding than cash in accounts as of today, and in fact this margin is worse than ever before in history (yes, even worse than in 2007.)  In other words, but for the claimed paper value of said certificates the market is factually bankrupt right now on a gross, “every man” basis!

Almost 20% of the gross domestic product of this nation (that is, everything produced) is siphoned off by the health care “system” with its grift, extortion and abuse.  That’s nearly one dollar in five!  A look at other developed, first-world nations (e.g. Japan) discloses that we should be able to buy our health care for somewhere between 1/10th and 1/5th of what we pay today.  Were that to be the case there would be no need for Medicare, Medicaid or health insurance — Obamacare or otherwise! Medicare is a great example; you’re responsible for 20% of the cost, by default, and you must pay a premium to the government.  But if your care was anywhere from 1/5th to 1/10th of today’s price you would actually pay less than the co-pay and deductible you pay today and you wouldn’t pay any premium at all!  In other words, even for the old guy or gal that currently is “on the dole” and allegedly “getting something” you’d be better off financially without Medicare were all of these acts to be prosecuted instead of protected!  Whether you’re rich, poor, young or retired, this scam steals from you each and every day without delivering any more value than it would without the theft.

Take the scam out of education and the cost collapses.  Now you could flip pizzas to pay for college as you could in the 1970s and early 80s before those schemes were instituted.  Prosecute The Federal Reserve Board and Banks and the price of assets, including houses would collapse — probably by 75% or more.  Not only does this mean you could buy a house for far less but for those who choose not to or who can’t rents would come down by 3/4 as well!

Why do you need Section 8 and other similar programs when your cost of housing is cut to a tiny fraction of what it is today?

You don’t!

If you believe that the cost of food hasn’t skyrocketed in the last five years you’re not paying attention.  It has.  Ditto for energy.  Oh yes, those are “excluded” from “inflation” numbers, but you have to buy them anyway.

So what happens when you can’t make the income balance against the outflow?  You borrow money in some form or fashion.

Yet that simply puts you further in the hole.

And that’s what’s been going since roughly 1980:

Of course borrowing against nothing, that is, creating credit with nothing behind it, looks good initially because it makes it appear you can keep buying things.  Unfortunately that credit comes with both a requirement to repay it and interest; the latter is a huge problem because over time it compounds just as do earnings.

The usual chestnut is that borrowing stimulates production and is of net benefit.  But the facts are that when borrowing accumulates faster than output that assertion is proved false; what is really going on is that people are borrowing to either consume or speculate.  The former permanently destroys value and the latter leaves you exposed to instant insolvency since the alleged “price” of what you speculate on has been disconnected from its value and is now largely (or even entirely!) predicated only on what someone else will pay.

The majority opinion appears to be that as long as you can get your little piece of the grift, whether it be Medicare, Food Stamps, Section 8 or a rising stock market it’s all ok.  Ask yourself — is that actually true or are you deluding yourself?  Are you falling behind despite getting your little piece of the grift or are you getting ahead?  What about your children?  Are they able to get ahead?  Is the same sort of investment you made 20 or 30 years ago credible as a means for them to obtain results similar or superior to what you obtained, or are they staring down a black hole of indebtedness while pulling coffees at Starbucks?  How about that “new car”; nearly $40,000 today as a “median” price and loan terms extending toward eight years — when just a little while ago the normal term was four.  How’s the job market in your area?  More importantly than the number of jobs — how’s the pay and how does that compare against the increase in health care, food, fuel and insurance expenses you must pay every day just to remain solvent?

Think about it for a while.

Then once again contemplate this: For how long as you going to allow all of the above to continue?  Will you allow it to continue right up until civility is lost entirely or will you demand that it stop and that those committing these acts face the same charges and penalties that you or I would for the same offenses?

Obama Sets The Stage For Civil War In America

SWATsquad

When a government no longer follows the rule of law, imposing instead it’s own law by decree – history teaches that a society becomes ruled  by the gun.

Legitimate government bound by the rule of law has the moral authority to uphold the law and impose justice.  A government the discards the rule of law, for it’s own rules and laws, no longer has any moral authority.  As such, the rule of law is always replaced by the rule of the gun – either to force compliance with a government’s dictates and whims, or in resistance to the government’s dictates and whims.  Regardless which is employed (usually both) – rivers of blood follow as history teaches that civil wars and conflicts are usually the most brutal.

Obama and his party (and to a minor degree the GOP leadership oligarchy) – are setting the stage for that exact consequence to be visited upon what used to be the home of the free.

What we are witnessing, is the devolution of the civil society into tyranny prompted by the incitement of anarchy.  The stoking of unrest in Ferguson by the White House, it’s attorney general and assorted race pimps like Sharpton, illustrate this fact in the local sense.

In the larger sense, the Ruling Class pass laws upon the people that they absolve and exempt themselves, at the same time they use a corrupted judiciary to strike down the will of the people to impose the will of the Leftist State.  This includes the domino fall of nearly every state’s Constitutional ban on Homosexual marriage or those laws limiting marriage to the biblical and natural law.

A despotic Executive who when not playing golf, decides what laws he will ignore and no longer enforce, while decreeing  policy as law that contravenes existing law.  This was once understood to be the definition of a dictatorship, but today the people are ignorant of facts, history and current events for the latest cultural fad via social networking.  For a people fast asleep to what is happening to them, the awakening to the cage they are shackled to will be violent, as history teaches.

Arbitrary laws mean there is no longer any common respect for the law – by either the government, or those it demands to rule.  Law is then determined by the end of a gun.  By those seeking to impose compliance or by those resisting it.  The cost of which is beyond the comprehension of most when one considers not just the violence – but the privation, starvation and brutality that lies in the wake of civil war.

But America is being shoved headfirst off the cliff by the man who holds the White House and those in government.

 

Rejecting The Rule Of Law Means Inviting The Rule Of Guns

Kurt Schlichter – Townhall.com

What is the alternative to the rule of law? We may be on the verge of re-learning that ancient lesson the hard way. Of course, those of us who is served in places where there was no law, where leftists and other aspiring totalitarians ignored the rules and norms of civil society, already know.

The alternative to the rule of law is the rule of power. And the rule of power is always the rule of men with guns.

The disgraceful indictment of Rick Perry in Texas is just the latest example of this trend, albeit one that carries the seeds of hope. The judicial lynching under way in Ferguson offers less reason for optimism – our disgrace of an Attorney General and that clown masquerading as Missouri’s governor are practically salivating at the idea of sacrificing the police officer on the altar of indignation, facts and law be damned.

Liberals are committed to destroying the rule of law because law, by treating all equally and recognizing their inalienable rights, frustrates their fascist impulses. This isn’t just another annoying manifestation of the left’s utter failure as functioning ideology. It’s a trend that should terrify everyone concerned with the state of our union.

History shows us where this leads. We now have a President, an alleged constitutional law professor, who believes that if the people’s elected representatives in Congress refuse to bend to his will he can just do what he likes anyway. At least when Caesar finally destroyed the Republic, ancient Rome ended up with a dictator who knew how to win wars.

This guy golfs while the world burns.

We have government agencies like the IRS and EPA simply ignoring laws, like the ones that that require them to maintain records so they can be held accountable to the people they purport to serve. Where are the consequences for their conscious failure to do so? The problem is that those sworn to uphold the law are the very ones undermining it. Can’t Eric Holder take a break from telegraphing to his progressive pals that his lackeys won’t be deterred from crucifying the Ferguson officer by obstacles like facts, evidence and law, and do his job?

He never will. Today, there are no consequences for those whose law-breaking aids the establishment.

And when not actively ignoring the law, the liberal establishment seeks to change the foundations of our law to strip the civil rights from those who oppose it. It is mind-boggling: We now have one of our two major political parties that, as a key policy position, believes that the First Amendment allows too much freedom of speech. The Democrats literally wish to amend the Constitution to restrict our right of free expression.

Yeah, that’s America’s problem – too much free speech by people critical of the government. That and gender specific bathrooms. And global warming, which science teaches comes from unicorn flatulence.

This isn’t a surprise. In the name of “campaign finance reform” – that is, the protection of largely Democrat incumbents – the Obama Administration actually sent an attorney representing the United States of America into the Supreme Court to argue that the government has the right to ban a book critical of a politician.

The clowns are to your right to read and think what you wish as John Lithgow was to dancing in Footloose. Which makes conservatives Kevin Bacon.

So what happens when the government is not restrained by law? What happens first is that the government does what it wants, as it wants, without accountability. That provides those left unprotected by the law two ugly choices. On one hand, they can submit, and allow themselves to be oppressed, existing at the pleasure, and subject to the whims, of their masters.

The alternative is to fight. Look at the Declaration of Independence. It’s largely a chronicle of English lawlessness, though the members of this administration no doubt consider that document unworthy of study because the Founding Fathers were cisgender, phallocentric racists or something.

Chairman Mao, who is a big favorite of the half-wits in the White House, said it best: “Power comes from the barrel of a gun.” If there is no law, there is no moral reason not to pick up a rifle and take what you want. The moral imperative of the law is that you will obey and respect it even if you disagree with it because it was justly imposed and will be fairly enforced. But if the law is neither justly imposed nor fairly enforced, that moral obligation disappears.

I walked through the burnt-out villages of Kosovo after the moral imperative of the law there had disappeared. The baffling concept that half of America will simply shrug their shoulders and submit to the dictatorship of the other half is as dangerous as it is misguided and foolish. When you toss out the law, bad things happen. This is a major theme of my new book, Conservative Insurgency, a speculative future history of the struggle to restore our country, and the consequences of short-sighted attacks on the rule of law for short-term political gain are not pleasant.

But there is hope. When that drunken Democrat convict of a district attorney indicted Rick Perry for doing his job – and that is exactly what she indicted him for – even some liberals swallowed hard and shook their heads. Perhaps this was the bridge too far that finally made a few liberals re-think their comrades’ chosen path downward into chaos.

The reaction of a few liberals to this charade is a sign of hope, but sadly many other leftists are clapping their soft, pudgy hands like trained seals, eagerly welcoming this latest step towards their liberal fascist Utopia. Somehow they got the impression that the American people will accept whatever they do, whatever injustice they impose, whatever whims they choose to enforce. That is an unbelievably dangerous notion. The sooner we stomp it out and return to the rule of law, the better.

Goodbye First Amendment

SWATFerguson7

Militarized Civilian Security Forces attack the media, arrest reporters and shut down cameras at the scene in Ferguson.

No, this is not the Middle East – this was once America.

Rioting gangbangers and opportunistic thugs causing mayhem is wrong.

What is more dangerous, is what we are seeing as a response to civilian mayhem.

I’m alarmed at hearing so many Americans applaud the military response we are seeing in Ferguson Missouri.  Because doing so means we are on an ice slope to hell.

We are now being conditioned to see armed tanks, APCs and MRAPs on America’s streets with combat troops with heavy weapons pointed at civilians.

Next, we will be conditioned to accept that reporting what those troops are doing is criminal and accept the brutality and arrest of citizens exercising their first amendment duties.

Will we shrug at combat troops (aka Civilian Security Forces) – shooting tear gas at news crews and then dismantling their equipment and cameras while pointing semi-automatic rifles at them?

SWATFerguson8

Notice that these police deliberately SHOT AT a news crew and then dismantled their camera equipment WHILE pointing a semi-automatic weapon at them as they run away.

SWAT FergusonNewsteam

This used to only happen in third world dictatorships. Now it happens in the place that used to be called the land of the free.

I guess the First Amendment is now null and void in Obama’s Amerika – and we should get used to living in a police state.

Some argue that it is a riot zone and such tactics are called for.

What happens tomorrow when such tactics will be justified against this?

Murietta

Or how about when this:

Outrage In Missouri Town After Police Shooting Of 18-Yr-Old Man

Is justified for use against this?

9-12-rally

This is exactly how state-run security forces become the Gestapo, the NKVD, the Stasi and other ‘security’ apparatus that will always eventually be used against anything and everything that the State deems to be a threat.

Kiss the First Amendment goodbye folks so many of your countrymen are already applauding the Police State.

The Military Occupation Of Ferguson, Missouri Is Just A Preview Of What Is Coming To America

Let’s be honest – Ferguson, Missouri is under military occupation right now, and the entire world is watching in horror as Ferguson-Militarized-Police-YouTube-Screenshotmilitarized police fire tear gas and rubber bullets at unarmed protesters. 

Yes, the rioting and looting in Fergusonneeded to be stopped.  If order had not been restored, more stores and businesses would have been destroyed.  However, there is no excuse for the brutal tactics now being employed.  

At one point, police snipers were evenusing laser scopes to target protesters that were obviously unarmed.  Sadly, this is just a preview of what is coming to America in the years ahead.  

As the economy falls apart and people become even more angry and even more frustrated, there will be a lot more incidents of civil unrest like we have just witnessed in Ferguson.  And in response, the federal government and our overly militarized police will seek to crush those uprisings with overwhelming force. 

How is it possible that our once very peaceful nation has fallen apart so dramatically?

Civil War Looms In America As Flashpoint Erupts In St.Louis

SWATFerguson

Mayhem.  Obama’s Free Sh*t Army loots.  Outside agitators arrive to encourage ‘revolution’. Militarized Gestapo Arrives in force.  Reporters arrested.   Cops sight in heavy weapons from MRAPs on crowd of unarmed protesters.

This is America? 

Is this the spark that sets the nation off to civil war?

We are on the verge of the kinds of horrors we have seen and are seeing in the third world.  Obama has divided the nation to the brink.   His regime and his ideological sycophants in his party and Praetorian Media have polarized the nation.  American Conservatives and Christians have been demonized while debauchery and wickedness have been celebrated.

The entitlement mentality has been indoctrinated into millions of the dependent class, and they are told that to demand more, making everything an issue over race and suggesting that Whites and other Americans need to pay reparations and have their wealth and property redistributed.

The racism industry has expanded under Obama.   Black on black crime is ignored in places like Chicago.  Black on white violence and killings go unreported same with illegal aliens and their killings and homicides upon citizens.  Yet, anyone that opposes what the Obama regime and the Marxofascist Democrat party demand is automatically declared a racist and millions have bought into the demonization that opposing what they want is racist.

Meanwhile…

The nation’s police forces have been systematically militarized with combat troops and military equipment like tanks, APCs and heavy weapons.  Federal agencies have stockpiled billions of rounds of hollow-point ammunition and weaponry. Islamic radicals were declared not to be a threat – but that White Conservatives were a terror-threat to the nation.  The government began to prepare itself for war against it’s own people that the Obama regime have declared enemies.

It’s no accident that Police have become thugs with a badge, harassing citizens and engaging in terror-tactics from shooting family pets for no cause to simply killing unarmed Americans because they could – while making up justifications for murder.  Not simply unfortunate random events, but ENDEMIC events they are being encouraged and trained for.

So in this environment – a political pool of gasoline – the militarized police and Obama’s Free Shit Army – tossed a match.  

Police last week shot and killed an unarmed 18 year old black student in a suburb of St. Louis.   Witnesses describe Michael Brown’s killing as a murder.  That Michael Brown was accosted by the police for jaywalking in which he refused to be arrested.  He was then subsequently shot to death.  Witnesses say Brown died with his hands in the air while being shot multiple times in the back some 35 feet from a police cruiser.

Cops justified the killing by stating that Brown pushed the officer into his car and struggled for the cop’s gun.  However, reports from the police themselves indicate that Brown had no weapon when he was shot multiple times and killed.

Instead of using the situation to unite the nation in examining the militarization of law enforcement – Obama’s Free Shit Army took the occasion to riot, loot, pillage and burn.  Some declared war on whites and via Twitter feed coordination, went into white neighborhoods to cause mayhem where a white woman was shot in the head.  

Just like the Trayvon Martin circus, the usual race pimps, Communist Revolutionaries, Black Panthers and Al Sharpton have flooded into Ferguson, MO to capitalize on the mayhem.  Opposing them, Obama’s militarized Police have shown up to show off – and a powder keg’s fuse has been lit.

Ask yourself as you look at these pics from tonight – is this really America anymore?

SWATFerguson2 SWATFerguson3 SWATFerguson4SWATFerguson5 SWATFerguson6 SWATFerguson7

Scores of gang-banging thugs and Communist agitators are stoking a confrontation.

But snipers from tanks sighting American civilians???  

MRAPS moving in on crowds firing gas?

What ever happened to fire hoses and batons?  

America – this might very well be the end of you.

As I write, Washington Post, Huffington Post reporters and others have been beaten and arrested. Wesley Lowry and Ryan Reilly tweeted they were beaten and arrested for merely eating at a McDonald’s when armed cops showed up guns drawn and ordered everyone out.  They tweeted: “@WesleyLowery 4m
Got no explaination at any point why in custody other than “trespassing” – at a mcdonalds where we were customers”  

Reilly reports his head was smashed into glass and the police would not answer the question about why they were being arrested.  

Reports are that police have ordered all news crews to turn off their cameras as police have begun firing into crowds and shooting tear gas into neighborhoods from APCs.

Reporters are saying they are being specifically targeted and ordered to stop filming and to turn their cameras off.  Carload of (Al Jazeera America) reporters surrounded by Gestapo and fired into.  Some reporters tweeting they are having flash bang grenades shot at them.  One reporter seriously burned.

Suddenly all live news feeds gone silent.  Cell and twitter feeds also going dark as SWAT teams and tanks take up various positions in the area.

Reporter Matt Moore Tweeted:

Matt Moore @Guerrillascribe · 2h
I did 3 embeds reporting from Iraq in 2003-4. Police in Ferguson have more body armor, weaponry than soldiers I reported on.

You get that?  The “Police” in Middle America are more equipped and militarized than our combat troops in Iraq during the invasion.

America’s heartland is now becoming a war zone.  Rioters and looters taking advantage of the situation to pillage and rob while Amerikas Civilian Security Force now also taking advantage of the situation. 

Smells almost like a deliberate set-up to set off a civil war, or this is simply the inevitable result of thugs armed with entitlement dependency and thugs armed with a badge and military hardware squaring off.

However this is being advantaged – this is exactly how civil wars begin and grow beyond ugly.  Perhaps this is all going according to plan, while Obama golfs.

Meanwhile, our Southern border is wide open and unguarded.

Wouldn’t Gestapo thugs with a badge be better deployed on the border and let UNIFORMED Police handle the ghetto thugs?  

I’m sure the answer to that question will be no.  Americans citizens, regardless of color are considered far more dangerous by our current government than whatever aliens are streaming into our country by the bus and planeload courtesy of His Heinous in the White House.
