Obama’s Communist Healthcare Administration Tells Congress To Shove Their Subpoenas

Il Douchebag

HHS tells Darrell Issa’s Congressional Committee in a letter that it will not comply with investigative subpoenas because “we don’t trust you with information”.

This is now become full blown, in-our-face tyranny.  Notwithstanding the ghoulish Sebelius’ arrogance and condescension towards anyone asking questions when trying to get to the bottom of the fraud and billions of dollars in waste thrown at a purposefully defective website put together by one of Michelle Obama’s Canadian college pals.

Snotty Sebelius

Now it goes into overdrive when Obama’s regime simply decides that it will no longer comply with the Congressional investigation into it’s fraud, deceit and deliberate collapse and takeover of America’s healthcare industry.  The reason given is beyond ridiculous, especially after it was learned that absolutely NO SECURITY was built into the ObamaCare website, putting personal information of anyone who signed up at terrible risk.  Now HHS says they will not comply with subpoenas because they do not trust Congress to keep data ‘secret’.  No, that’s not ‘Onion’ satire that is the real excuse given to ignore the subpoena and refuse to comply with investigators.

The Health and Human Services Department told House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa that it won’t turn over documents related to the security of the Healthcare.gov website because it can’t trust him to keep secret information that could give hackers a roadmap to wreak havoc on the system. Issa has issued a subpoena to MITRE, a government contractor, to turn over unredacted copies of security-testing documents by noon Friday. At issue are website development plans MITRE drafted for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, which is under HHS. Already, Issa has been given access to the documents he seeks “in camera” — meaning committee staff were able to review them in a room but not keep them — but he is seeking physical copies…Administration officials worry that Issa intends to put them in the public domain, which Esquea argues could compromise the security of the site

…“It’s an unacceptable violation of law and a dangerous precedent for any Administration to tell a private company not to respond to a lawful subpoena,” Issa spokesman Frederick Hill said in an email.

Issa shot back with a harsh bark by accusing the HHS of criminal obstruction of the probe into the failed ObamaCare website.

The Health and Human Services Department has told contractors working on the problem-plagued ObamaCare website not to release documents to congressional investigators, a mandate slammed as “criminal obstruction” by House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa.

…“The federal obstruction laws reflect the fact that Congress’ right of access to information is constitutionally based and critical to the integrity and effectiveness of our oversight and investigative activities,” Issa said. “For that reason, it is widely understood that private citizens and companies cannot contract away their duty to comply with a congressional request for documents. “

The HHS did not respond to an email request for comment.

The problem is not the ruse of security in ObamaCare, the real problem is that the system of checks and balances has been abolished by Obama and a complicit Congress and media.   Nothing is going to be done about these lawless breaches of law by Obama’s regime.  Nothing.  Issa’s committee is already proven to be all bark and no bite; nothing but window dressing to silence the Conservatives who are calling for the Rule of Law to be upheld. Congress under John Boehner and Mitch McConnell have willingly ceded their power and authority over to Obama’s complete and total control.  When Obama waves his hand to change the healthcare law’s mandates whenever he sees fit – and Congress does nothing to stop such lawlessness, then Congress has willingly empowered a dictator who now rules us under a fraudulent color of ‘law’.

Downtrend has a good analysis on this blatant elitism from Obama’s HHS.

Obama The Dictator – “My Military”

O&Il-Duce

Obama has repeatedly said he will act without Congress.  Today he said U.S. Armed forces were “My military”.  America  no longer has a President, America is ruled by a Dictator.

Why pretend what the reality is, is not reality?  Obama is a dictator, in our faces and those of the world.

Obama said he would do it; to Act without Congress if they did not do as he demands, even if the Constitution prohibits him from doing so.  Obama’s unilateral actions against the Second Amendment by decree, to his unilateral actions of running guns into Mexican drug cartels, arming Al Qaeda rebels in Benghazi, attacking Libya and now setting bomb sights on Syria – Obama rules like the dictator he emphatically denied he was some months ago.

I recall how berserk the MarxoFascists and Lefties all went over Bush going to war in Afghanistan and then Iraq.  What is interesting is that BOTH TIMES, in 2001 and again in 2003 – W. Bush went to Congress and got a Congressional authorization for the use of force, which they funded.  Before the Iraq war, Bush sent Colin Powell to play footsie with the UN for almost a full year over Sadaam Hussein’s violations of the 1991 Cease Fire.

Today, after 2011′s strike in Libya to oust Libyan dictator Moammar Ghadaffi, to his impending attack in Syria, Obama has not even given Congress a phone call, despite his lie that he has “consulted Congress”.  No, he hasn’t.  His regime has been repeating the mantra that Obama will act unilaterally if he has to.

Same as he said he will on banning guns.

Interesting that our first Dictator-In-Chief just today stated in front of the cameras the truth that most Americans are going to pretend didn’t happen; Obama said the military was “My military”.

Only Dictators and kings make such claims, and Obama today – has.

In addition, while all of us were distracted with war talk on Syria, Obama has issued Executive Orders and policy directives from Climate Change, State voting rights to GRANTING AMNESTY  TO ILLEGALS without congress.

Obama Grants Amnesty to Illegal Immigrants Without Congress

Congress hasn’t passed immigration legislation, but that hasn’t stopped President Obama from issuing directives that grant amnesty to illegal immigrants.

Last week, the Obama Administration issued the latest in a line of policy directives granting amnesty by default. This latest directive instructs Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials not to enforce immigration laws in cases where an illegal alien is the primary provider for any minor child—regardless of the child’s immigration status—or the parent or guardian of a child who is a U.S. citizen or legal permanent resident.

Meanwhile, Boehner and McConnell and the Ruling Class Republicans in Congress are silent and/or supportive of this dictatorial monarchy that acts every day outside of it’s Constitutional bounds.

The fact is America, we have a dictator or self-imposed king now ruling the country.  He and his Marxofascist Religionists, will decide which laws to enforce and obey, and which laws to ignore and void.  The horde, goose-stepping to the drums Obama pounds for them or totally clueless – all wrapped up in the Michael Douglas-Catherine Zeta-Jones’ split.

How long America will you endure such a thing?

Or like the Ruling Class Republicans, have you surrendered already to what the media has insisted is inevitable?

History teaches that such a people so accommodating of tyrants, end up in mass graves by the very leaders they capitulated to.

Obama Media: It’s Time To Abolish The “Evil” Constitution

Obama-BurnsCropped

While still drumming up a zeitgeist against guns and the 2nd Amendment, Obama’s media says it is time to abandon and abolish the Constitution because it is old, archaic and ‘downright evil’.

The masks and pretenses are off.  So too I assume will be the gloves in the not too distant future.  The MarxoFascists/Progressives in the Regime and it’s media are now bold suggesting treason as a matter of intellectual superiority.  The NY Times published an Op-ed 3 weeks ago – being repeated on CBS this weekend – that the Constitution has outlived it’s usefulness and should be abandoned and/or abolished altogether.  As the gun control debate rages, look for this meme to be repeated more often by Obama’s stooges in the media to counter the advocates and “cultists’ who champion the 2nd Amendment.

Constitutional law professor at Georgetown Michael Seidman, who teaches our kids about the Constitution – blames all the woes of our failed government and regime on the Constitution itself.  He calls our Foundational law ‘archaic, idiosyncratic and downright evil’.  He suggests ‘disobedience’ to the Constitution, meaning Obama and the Left should simply ignore it and only give it a passing acknowledgment when it comes to free speech, and only do so out of respect – not obligation.

Seidman seeds the meme that Obama himself has subtly suggested over the years; that the Constitution induces bondage and has made us slaves.  Indeed Obama himself stated that the Constitution “Is a charter of NEGATIVE liberties”, lamenting the provisions that restrict government’s power and suggested that it should be rewritten so it can tell government what to do on behalf of the people.

To me, this published advocation of treason reveals the actual intent at work by Obama and the MarxoFascists.

Now we know why and how it is, that this regime in power via fraud ignores the Constitution so willingly – and works tirelessly to infringe and abolish those parts of the law they disagree and hate.  This same media now calls anyone advocating gun rights as a ‘2nd Amendment Cultist’ – and that same disdain for the rest of the Constitution is now in our faces and was just sworn in to high office.

Let’s Give Up on the Constitution

By LOUIS MICHAEL SEIDMAN

Link to Op-Ed article allowed only.

CBS actually gives this treason advocate a platform in which to spew this suggestion, as the meme and forced zeitgeist of propagandists for the MarxoFascists now openly sow the seeds for the push to disregard and abolish the Constitution and MSNBC has followed.

For those who do not wish to poison their ears listening to this treason – here’s just a snippet of what this ‘professor’ is teaching our kids at Georgetown:

I’ve got a simple idea: Let’s give up on the Constitution. I know, it sounds radical, but it’s really not. Constitutional disobedience is as American as apple pie. For example, most of our greatest Presidents — Jefferson, Lincoln, Wilson, and both Roosevelts — had doubts about the Constitution, and many of them disobeyed it when it got in their way.

To be clear, I don’t think we should give up on everything in the Constitution. The Constitution has many important and inspiring provisions, but we should obey these because they are important and inspiring, not because a bunch of people who are now long-dead favored them two centuries ago. Unfortunately, the Constitution also contains some provisions that are not so inspiring. For example, one allows a presidential candidate who is rejected by a majority of the American people to assume office. Suppose that Barack Obama really wasn’t a natural-born citizen. So what? Constitutional obedience has a pernicious impact on our political culture. Take the recent debate about gun control. None of my friends can believe it, but I happen to be skeptical of most forms of gun control. I understand, though, that’s not everyone’s view, and I’m eager to talk with people who disagree.

But what happens when the issue gets Constitutional-ized? Then we turn the question over to lawyers, and lawyers do with it what lawyers do. So instead of talking about whether gun control makes sense in our country, we talk about what people thought of it two centuries ago. Worse yet, talking about gun control in terms of constitutional obligation needlessly raises the temperature of political discussion. Instead of a question on policy, about which reasonable people can disagree, it becomes a test of one’s commitment to our foundational document and, so, to America itself.

This is our country. We live in it, and we have a right to the kind of country we want. We would not allow the French or the United Nations to rule us, and neither should we allow people who died over two centuries ago and knew nothing of our country as it exists today. If we are to take back our own country, we have to start making decisions for ourselves, and stop deferring to an ancient and outdated document.

TEOTIAWKI: The End Of The Internet As We Knew It

The tyranny of the Ruling Class marches on towards a much desired goal; to restrict web site content and block access to sites the government accuses of engaging in “infringement”.

Free Speech and access to uncensored information is about to be outlawed by the thugs in D.C.

All tyrannical and despotic regimes of men move to ban three key things right when they are in the act of imposing an iron fist upon a people: weapons for self defense, freedom of speech and free access to information.

It is no surprise that the Ruling Class in D.C. are working overtime to impose those things.  Gun control was eagerly sought to be imposed on the people in a criminal conspiracy involving Obama’s Justice Department with the Gunwalker/Operation Fast and Furious scandal that smuggled guns into the hands of Mexican drug cartels for hoped-for use on Americans so as to foster the call for an abolishment of the 2nd Amendment.  The pompous and lawless Attorney General Eric Holder continues to thwart efforts to hold him accountable for his heinous involvement in that treason.

Earlier this year the Ruling Class in Congress attempted to impose “Net Neutrality” rules by granting the FCC the right to regulate the internet as it does the telephone and television airwaves under the oft-used notion of ‘fairness’ and  “keeping the internet flowing” – but in truth – it granted large corporations (mainly the mainstream news corporations) a monopoly in league with the government, license grants by the FCC to charge for a tiered pay-per-view” browsing privilege.  This was roundly seen as a back-door approach to letting the government regulate the internet – something Obama lackey Julius Genachowski has been pushing for.

The need to regulate the free flow of information and speech is vital to any despotic or tyrannical system.  In all practicality, information is more important to control than guns for a despotic regime.  It is said that the advent of the fax machine is what directly led to the Soviet Union losing it’s iron grip on it’s people.   A tyranny cannot allow access to information or the exchange of ideas it cannot control.

So in addendum to the defacto imposition of net neutrality – the Ruling Class in Congress, under the auspices of ‘combating online piracy’ and ‘copyright infringement’ are heavily pushing the “Stop Online Piracy Act” or SOPA and the “Protect IP Act” or PIPA.  Both are blatant attempts to grant the Federal Government the ability to block any web site, close any blog or web channel it merely ACCUSES of engaging in illegal infringement of copyright.

Dajaz1.com is an example of our future under these defacto rules they now seek to make permanent law.  It was a site the Feds took over with many other ‘hip-hop’ sites last year without any recourse provided to the owners. They FALSELY ACCUSED the site of copyright infringement, denied the owner DUE PROCESS for over a year and only recently, without any explanation quietly dropped the case.

A test run to see what they could get away with.  But now with SOPA and PIPA, those actions will be legal and enforced whenever the Feds and the media conglomerates decide to block, stop and seize those blogs, web sites and forums they want to shut down.

Just think how willing the old media of ABC, CNN, NBC and the print whores at the NYT and the wire services at AP and Reuters – will use this law to attempt to get their old media monopoly on information back.  Any blog mentioning the news can be legally shut down, blocked and seized for nothing more than an accusation by one of these sites that the news blogged about was ‘infringed’ from their site.  And of course, you can be assured the sites that are sympathetic to the agenda of the MSM will get a free pass, while those questioning or opposing the agendas will become daily targets.

The Ruling Class cannot tolerate the free internet. They hate the Blogosphere and the power it has to shape public opinion and dispense information.  They hate the eyes watching and reporting their attempts of treason and tyranny – and like all despots of mankind’s history – they will have to take over the last bastion of freedom that stands in the way of their designs.

As with all the tyranny we willingly suffer, the Ruling Class will use clever sounding titles to obfuscate the real purpose and intent of these bills.  “Protect IP” and “Stop Piracy” are certainly noble-sounding names that the less-than-informed will embrace.  But at their core – it the mechanism in the hands of the government to block, seize, stop and eliminate the information it does not want you to access or share.

Welcome to Amerika.

Heritage.org discusses the consequences for the internet.

Would you be outraged if the Department of Justice shut down The Foundry without any warning and blocked access for more than a year?

The Stop Online Piracy Act, or SOPA as it’s known in the House, and the Senate’s PROTECT IP Act would give the U.S. attorney general the power and authority to block criminal enterprises from trafficking in illegal products online.

But the two bills making their way through Congress are the wrong solution. They pose serious threats to freedom of speech and expression and raise security concerns. With the Senate possibly voting on the PROTECT IP Act in January and the House moving forward with hearings on SOPA, Americans should understand what’s at stake.

Think about this now for a moment – the Attorney General, who was behind putting guns in the hands of Mexican drug cartels so they can be used against Americans for the purpose of abolishing the right to arms in the USA, who has been lying and deliberately covering up his role in that treason, will be granted power to decide what blogs, sites and forums can be seized, blocked and shut down with these Acts.

While Fast and Furious was their underhanded conspiracy to abolish the Second Amendment, these two Acts will grant him the ability to abolish the First Amendment, legally – and at his whim.

When the free flow of access to information and discussion is controlled by government, real tyranny, real genocide can begin without fear of consequences for the Ruling Class.

And as I said earlier this has been attempted before, in a former tyranny we suffered that we overthrew:

The Licensing of the Press Act 1662  an Act of the Parliament of England (14 Car. II. c. 33), long title “An Act for preventing the frequent Abuses in printing seditious treasonable and unlicensed Bookes and Pamphlets and for regulating of Printing and Printing Presses.”

Motivated by a desire to eliminate chaos and piracy in the printing industry, protect parliamentary activities and proceedings from its opponents, suppress royalist propaganda and check the widening currency of various sects’ radical ideas, Parliament instituted a new state-controlled censoring apparatus in the Licensing Order of 16 June 1643.

The Licensing Order reintroduced almost all of the stringent censorship machinery of the 1637 Star Chamber Decree including:

pre-publication licensing
registration of all printing materials with the names of author, printer and publisher in the Register at Stationers’ Hall
search, seizure and destruction of any books offensive to the government
arrest and imprisonment of any offensive writers, printers and publishers.

The Stationers’ Company was given the responsibility of acting as censor, in return for a monopoly of the printing trade.

Nothing new under the sun, and Satan and tyrannies of men stick to what works, and they are happy that their people are ignorant of or forget history.

 

UPDATE:  Well at least someone has some interesting ideas of how to try and stop this:

Obama Asserts His Dictatorship

‘We Can’t Wait For Congress” Says Obama on Monday “Where they won’t act, I will” – setting the mantra for accepting his absolute rule over us.

INVAR

Glassy-eyed Americans who are wholly ignorant of Constitutional Law are no doubt cheering The Won, who today asserted before the nation that he will circumvent Congress when they do not act in accordance to his demands.  When they do not, he today asserted that he will act by his own decree without consent or legislation from Congress.

“I’m here to say that we can’t wait for an increasingly dysfunctional Congress to do its job. Where they won’t act, I will”

America, you elected and support an Emperor who we warned would rule you with an iron fist when the time finally came.  What we see now, is the mask of deception dropping and Obama no longer making pretenses to hide what he really is: a megalomaniacal Marxist dictatorial wannabe.

The new “We Can’t Wait” slogan Obama unveiled today – is by far the most in-our-face boot of tyranny ever thrust upon this Republic since the 1860′s, but far more insidious and tyrannical.

Insidious, because it’s clever in it’s application.   It erroneously gives the impression that Obama will act above the petty squalors of Congress and GET RESULTS for the ‘little people’ by his own hand – without the messy delays of dealing with Congress.  It’s an insidious way to get this Constitutionally ignorant people to accept the need to empower a king instead of the boiler room of Congress as intended by our Founders.

So will set precedent, of which 40 years of judicial activism showcases that precedent becomes defacto law – WITHOUT the need for a Congress.

As admitted today, His Heinous will simply ignore the pesky rules of the Constitution in order to create ‘results’.  Results that will benefit his re-election by using taxpayer monies to ‘pay’ for his political army, in gracious handouts and programs from funds he will take from those he will destroy and subjugate, while endearing and expanding  the welfare and dependency class that is wholly beholden to him.

The model is frighteningly familiar.  Mussolini did this exact same thing.  So did Stalin and Hitler both.  Mao comes to mind.  Yet, you watch as more than half this people either will applaud or shrug their shoulders at a brazen admission by Obama, that the Rule of Constitutional Law no longer applies to him.  Giving away houses, cars and student loans to chosen vessels of his regime, is no less than bribing himself to re-election during an economic crisis he and his party created for this exact purpose.

Obama will then rule by decree , something he has subtly suggested over the last few weeks –  and exactly as predicted by this author back in 2008. No mean feat as we read his books and those of his Marxist mentors – so we knew what he meant when he said he would “Fundamentally transform the United States of America”.

Welcome to your change America – from a Representative Republic to a Marxist Dictatorship with the flavor of a banana republic.

This admission and power grab, if unchallenged in the very short term – will pave a very quick succession for actual dictatorial acts that will establish by default – an absolute rule by Obama, who will then use Congress as window dressing, same as in the Soviet Union, where the Politburo was simply there to give an illusion of the People having a voice.

An illusion that hides the very real pain of the shackles and irons of absolute tyranny.

They come for you now America.

Can you hear the clanking?

Or do you instead hear cheers of relief by those bought into slavery of the state?

Obama Dismisses S&P Downgrade, Gives USA AAAA Rating – Blames Republicans in Congress

Madness is often found in tyrannical despotic leaders with a god-complex.  They become obsessed with their own hubris and fantasy world that they create and dismiss reality – often blaming others for their failures that results in genocides.

In Biblical times, Nebuchadnezzer King of Babylon ordered a golden statue of himself made - and ordered his entire realm to fall down and worship his image when a bell was sounded. He became enraged when three Israelites, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego refused to worship the statue – and he threw them alive into a furnace as punishment.

There are the tales of the insane spectacles of Caligula, and the madness and slaughter Nero perpetrated.

In our own time, despots from Mussolini to Mao were filled with their own narcissistic petulance that had zero-tolerance for anyone daring to explain reality.  King George the III went mad.  Oftentimes, such a mindset infects an entire regime, because few to none dare raise the ruler’s wrath by pointing out the truth – so incredible acrobatics of truth are manufactured to explain away what the real world is dishing out – and/or – they ignore it wholesale – blaming those who attempt to state the truth for the woe and misery reality brings.

This fella comes to mind:

Today – we saw the specter of an angry, petulant narcissistic madman, The President of the United States – totally dismiss reality in a disjointed rant that he was nearly an hour late for. His anger was apparent as was his total disconnection with reality – as he seeks to construct his own, by actually stating that the S&P Credit downgrade was not legitimate.  He cited Warren Buffet, who himself was downgraded by S&P – as saying that “he would give the US a AAAA credit rating”.  So in the hubris mind of NerObama – HE, like all emperors can decide on his own authority – what kind of credit rating to give the country.  And – he will make up a new rating – and call it Quadruple A – and say that is the rating we deserve.

His Heinous Obama put an exclamation point on his dismissal of S&P’s authority or legitimacy to downgrade the USA’s rating by stating:

“No matter what some agency may say, we’ve always been and always will be a triple A country”.

So no matter what a Credit agency says – it is what His Heinous Obama says – that matters – according to his own words.  No wonder the stock market plummeted over 500 points following his rant this afternoon.

But during Obama’s nonsensical screed – that I think was more geared towards further damage than containment – he subtly suggested as his Democrat Apparatchik’s have been boldly proclaiming –  by saying

“We didn’t need a rating agency to tell us that the gridlock in Washington over the last several months has not been constructive, to say the least. We knew from the outset that a prolonged debate over the debt ceiling, a debate where the threat of default was used as a bargaining chip, could do enormous damage to our economy and the world.”

Interesting projection from His Heinous, considering it was HIS WHITE HOUSE THAT SET THE DATE OF DEFAULT. He was the one using the threat of default as a ‘bargaining chip’ – but like all the Marxist tyrants before him, the practice is to blame your political enemies for what he, himself is doing.

“The markets continue to reaffirm our credit as among the world’s safest”.

Yeah.  Keep Speaking Baghdad Obama.

Then His Heinous suggested what the economy really needs is “Tax reform”.

“What we need to do now is combine those spending cuts with two additional steps. Tax reform that will ask those who can afford it to pay their fair share and modest adjustments to health care programs like Medicare”.

Tax increases anyone?  That’s what this means.  His NerOship wants to tax what is left of the wealthy – so he can give it to his cronies to buy his reelection.

Madness.  The madness of a madman upon us.

MessiahObama: Pelosi Says Obama “More Patient Than Job of the Bible”

In yet another sickening example of the attempt of the Marxists and Socialists in this country to deify Presidente Hussein Obama and loft him to god-like status, former House Speaker Nancy “Stretch” Pelosi makes the BLASPHEMOUS statement that Job of scripture cannot compare to Hussein Obama in terms of patience and godly righteousness in conjunction with the debt ceiling negotiations that the Boy King has thrown tantrums and stormed out of.

The overt in-our-face insistences that the Boy King is above us mere mortals, and cannot be bothered by questions or anyone daring to defy him and his demands is beyond insulting, it’s blasphemous.

Our God is not mocked despite the insidiously stupid things the Marxists and other sycophants of Obama attempt to foist on us.  Pelosi is just the latest and most absurd attempt thusfar to equate or compare Obama to biblical patriarchs, prophets or Christ Himself.

Hattip to CNS news for breaking the story:

Notwithstanding Pelosi’s biblical ignorance here, but to compare Obama to Job is beyond vomitous.  Satan was permitted by God to put Job into trial by killing all ten of his children, having his fields burned and ransacked by invading armies and then found hims self covered in painful boils that prompted Job to sit on an ash heap while scraping his sores.  This all done to test whether Job would curse God, while The Lord used the trial to polish a flaw in Job’s character.  Still in all, after such a heinous trial of the flesh, Job did not curse God.  Even Job’s wife turned on him along with three so-called friends who then attempted to accuse him of affronting the Almighty.

So let’s get this Pelosi blasphemy squared here;  all of Job’s ten children are brutally killed.  Job loses everything he has, including his wealth, fields and stature.  He then is covered in sores and relegated to an ash heap where his wife and his friends abandon him to accusatory torment.  And NerObama??

What has NerObama suffered that goes BEYOND what Job endured according to Pelosi??

He’s not getting his way to raise our debt ceiling; he’s getting questions shouted at him by reporters; he’s upset he can’t get a blank check so he can spend more of our money we don’t have for Socialist programs that empower him and his fellow communists.

So he storms out of talks and threatens seniors, vets and other dependent Americans with holding check payments in a tried-and-true Marxist method of extortion to get what he wants.

And Pelosi says NerObama is by far, more virtuous and patient than Job in scripture?

While the Democrats, Marxists and Socialists claim the Conservatives and Republicans are demons for not giving into what the Boy King wants – the fact is, they are projecting exactly as Satan himself projects, while standing before the throne of God accusing the saints night and day.

Some of us are aware what wavelength these tyrants in high office operate under, for some of us are not ignorant of the Devil’s devices.

For even Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.  And in NerObama’s case – he has fellow sycophants do it for him.

A Time of Great Darkness In A Season Of Designated Light

By Peter Marshall

December 23, 2009

We live in a time of great darkness for our nation. In Washington, the prevailing culture of our government is that it exists to provide for the people. In exercising this supposed benevolence it insists on controlling more and more of our daily lives and our finances. With a few lonely exceptions, this seems to be the prevailing attitude of most of the Congress of the United States, which clearly no longer represents the public. Over 60 percent of the American people are opposed to the looming health care bill, and when more of the details of this coming horror are revealed that percentage will rise. But that does not deter the legislative solons of the republic — they plow on enacting their socialistic agenda regardless of the people. This is, of course, being propelled by a President who is determined to foist government control on Americans. In our entire history there has never been a President whose avowed program is more destructive to everything Americans believe in, and everything our nation has stood for. Our way of life, and indeed the future of our American experiment is very much in danger. I use these words guardedly, and without exaggeration. 

Only one thing will save us: a move of the Spirit of God that will create a grass-roots revival movement to restore American values to government, anchored in a desire to return to the God-given inalienable rights on which we were founded. Anything short of a God-ordained sweeping moral and spiritual revolution from the bottom up (in other words, motivated and energized and manned by the people themselves) will not accomplish the needed change. 

Will this happen? I don’t know, but I do know that we must all pray and work for it with everything in us. Stay tuned. 

Meanwhile, what message of hope is there for us at this Christmastide? 

This: that like the timeless sea, whose washing of our shores continues with lunar regularity despite the vagaries of human behavior, the love of our heavenly Father remains constant and eternal. There is a calming and reassuring constancy of the sea that speaks to me this morning of the Father’s love — a love which is always there for us, no matter how bad things get, no matter how great the insanity of the world. 

In another time of great darkness long ago, when the boot of the hated Roman occupier lay on the throats of the Jewish people, God quietly brought the Savior into the world. “The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; those who dwelt in the land of intense darkness and the shadow of death, upon them has the light shined” (Isaiah 9:2 Amplified Bible). God did not abandon His people then, and He will not abandon them now, either. He who founded this nation for His purposes in the world will not suffer us to be left without His grace. All of the millions of prayers that interceding Americans are bringing before the Throne of Mercy will not go unheeded.

Primary Bailout: Marxist Centralized Planning & Abandoning What Made America Great

Primary Bailout

By John Galt

 

October 5, 2008

“Forward, the Light Brigade!”
Was there a man dismay’d?
Not tho’ the soldier knew
 Someone had blunder’d:
Their’s not to make reply,
Their’s not to reason why,
Their’s but to do and die:
Into the valley of Death
 Rode the six hundred.

-Charge of the Light Brigade by Alfred Lord Tennyson

The particular charge for this article is the fiasco that was just completed by only five hundred and thirty four but the futility of their charge will soon be realized by anyone with one half of a clue about the reality of markets, monetary systems and the true reasons behind the largest assault on free market capitalism since the days of Franklin Delano Roosevelt. The real motivations behind what I call the Debt Nationalization Act of 2008 may never be known until Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson writes his memoirs, yet there is a nagging feeling that the days where capital innovation originating in the marketplace have been sunset, hopefully to arise when the dark pall of the new socialist America regresses in a fury of voter vengeance. It would appear that the American public needs to feel the pain of what so many people worldwide have lost their lives to run from and destroy: Marxist centralized planned economies.

Nous Sommes Francais

“We are French.”

While this might offend some people with the inference that it is a derogatory term, that is too bad. As for myself and our fellow frogs of Amerika, this is going to become a larger nightmare than anyone could ever conceive. The lack of hearings on this bill, the lack of study and discussion will come back to haunt our nation in spades. The pork that was loaded into the bill was indicative of the kind of games banana republics of the 1930’s in Latin America and the Caribbean used to play with their budgets which made them the mockery of the capitalist world of the time. Now we are the mocked, the joke, the sad fat bloated buffoon which gets featured on Jerry Springer as the wall to our house is cut out and the socialist forklift hauls our nation’s financial system into a dump truck because we are too large to fit into an ambulance.

The idea that we need centralized planning for our economy reminds me of the days in college where we studied under the Keynesian idealists and some of the professors actually praised a government planning committee to insure that resources and monetary needs were allocated based on a preconceived formula versus the capitalist utilization model where profit was the ultimate motive. Unfortunately the bailout does nothing more than create a GOSPLAN for the United States where not only the management of eighty plus percent of the housing industry now becomes the responsibility of the Department of the Treasury and an office building full of socialist bureaucrats, but the whims of political appointees in positions throughout the cabinet including HUD, the Fed and SEC. Scared yet? Better learn French just to get a taste of what is to come. Also buried in the bill is every wet dream fantasy of Al Gore and the Marxist environmentalist whacko movement laying the tax credit and planning for carbon sequestration, carbon credits along with IRS implications, and the penalties plus benefits for people who live in modern “green” homes and higher taxes for non-conformist homes, which means a tax increase on oh, most of us.

Unfortunately for the Bubblevision cheerleaders, the perception that this will instantly put the twenty percent down in the pockets of every man, woman, child, cat, dog, turtle, illegal, snake or hyena so everyone or anything can buy a home from the modern version of the National Recovery Administration is not only false, but a fantasy that is going to become even more impaired by the inflation this act will create. The only thing that will ultimately occur is that instead of 1,000 to 1,500 banks failing throughout the nation as such respected experts as Nouriel Roubini has speculated about, it is this writer’s opinion that in excess of 3,000 banks are probably doomed to failure. Before the debt nationalization and spurious comments about “urgency” and “disaster” sparked by vague and unsubstantiated comments from Paulson there was and always has been a prudent distrust by the American public of Wall Street, the banking system and most of all the government. Instead of calming these markets and the underlying institutions within our quasi-capitalist system, the actions of Bush, Paulson, the so-called Financial Mainstream Media, and our politicians has initiated a justifiable panic and loss of confidence in a system which was built upon data streams fraught with fraud and deliberate distortion. This is so much like the Euro-socialist model where the bad news was and always has been manipulated for political purposes instead of defining finite data points where capitalists can exploit the situation and expand economies using traditional investing methods.

Sadly, ever since John F. Kennedy, the concept of data distortion is now the unwritten policy of every administration and this is one of the reasons we have landed where we are today. The market’s distrust of inflation, unemployment, credit, real estate, and durable goods reports is one of the reasons the honest and practical investor is no longer wishing to participate in the system which appears “rigged” to the untrained eye. To the trained eye, with the manipulations and massive interventions in the system by central bankers worldwide and weekly edicts changing trading rules and roles, they know it has turned into a roulette wheel with a large magnet under the wheel designed to favor the few and punish the rest of the gambling public. Thus the real reason for this alleged rescue which does nothing but throw a lead laden life preserve and a Mai-Tai with a pretty umbrella to the man struggling in the ocean while sharks circle around him.

The Primary Bailout

Now the question everyone seems to have been asking:

Why the panic, why the sudden emergency, and why are foreign banks included?

I think the following list from the Federal Reserve Bank of New York will answer your question.

 

List of the Primary Government Securities Dealers Reporting to the Government Securities Dealers Statistics Unit of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York

BNP Paribas Securities Corp.
Banc of America Securities LLC
Barclays Capital Inc.
Cantor Fitzgerald & Co.
Citigroup Global Markets Inc.
Credit Suisse Securities (USA) LLC
Daiwa Securities America Inc.
Deutsche Bank Securities Inc.
Dresdner Kleinwort Securities LLC
Goldman, Sachs & Co.
Greenwich Capital Markets, Inc.
HSBC Securities (USA) Inc.
J. P. Morgan Securities Inc.
Merrill Lynch Government Securities Inc.
Mizuho Securities USA Inc.
Morgan Stanley & Co. Incorporated
UBS Securities LLC.

If you notice those banks that are highlighted in red and bolded, they are all American subsidiaries of foreign banks with operations inside the United States. Since July 15, 2008 Countrywide Financial, Lehman Brothers and of course Bear Stearns have been removed from the list of Primary Dealers for United States Treasury Securities, leaving only seven domestically based operations and none of the American banks remaining operating solely as investment banks. What a difference a year makes.

This now begs the question, why the sense of urgency. The answer is simple. If the United States Government, meaning the legislative and executive branches did not reach an accommodation to create valuations for the so-called toxic debt instruments and agree to buy a substantial portion of them back into the U.S. Treasury portfolio, they would refuse to buy United States Treasury debt instruments, in essence blackmailing the people of this country into creating a market which was created under false Level III pretenses.

Although this entire piece is just my opinion, it does not take a rocket scientist or Hockey Mom from Alaska to figure this out. Without the primary dealership network, the U.S. Treasury would have auctions which consist of some computerized bids and a very empty room with a few drunks from the closed Lehman bond desk who act as bidders but haven’t received the memo that their company has been wiped out by Goldman’s right hand man, Hanky Panky Paulson. The foreign bidders are critical to the survival of the United States because we have to raise over $2,000,000,000.00 per day to keep the lights on and justify the existence of thousands of stupid people enforcing thousands of needless and stupid regulations. It also keeps the stupid people populations down on our streets, which is a net positive but is financially inefficient. If the foreign bidders via the banks in the primary dealer network from Scotland, Japan, Hong Kong, Germany, Switzerland, France, and the United Kingdom is not enough of a concern, add in the threat from our own institutions refusing to use their Caribbean Island proxy hedge funds to buy also.

Ignored in this flurry of fluffernuttery and malfeasance was the streamlining of a thirty day application process by one Ben Bernanke to enable Goldman and Morgan to divest themselves of the “investment bank” tag and become commercial retail banks in five freaking days. Gee, do you think the bank examiners still dusting themselves off at the craters Indymac, Washington Mutual and Wachovia have had enough time to review the books at GS and MS to insure that they are viable commercial banks? Probably not but “Ben’s” word is good enough for me (snicker). So if they were not allowed to change their structure, begin the process of gifts from the FDIC of free deposits and the ability to leverage funds in an unlimited manner via the new zero reserve requirement, what incentive would they have to call their offices in the cubicles down the hall and tell them to buy half a billion in government paper for the Pirates of the Caribbean? None. So the game was rigged and allowed to proceed forward at all costs, including the middle class and integrity of our markets, and voila, instant bailout.

If the President and Legislature refused to move forward on a taxpayer funded boondoggle to destroy the monetary system by acquiring assets at prices way in excess of their underlying value, the banksters were going to blackmail the United States public by destroying their retirements and deflating everything in sight to insure that no politician was safe in their comfortable position and the American public would be in full outrage mode to restructure both political parties and quite possibly the political system currently in place. Since the deal of 1913 was the first institutionalized incident of M.A.D. (Mutually-Assured-Destruction) of record and the Federal Reserve reminded the politicians of this, it was completely evident after the so-called meltdown on September 29th, that action of some sort would have to be taken, taxpayer be damned.

Taxpayer Benefits or “There’s a Sucker born every minute”

Now the political talking heads, the lying elected officials and so-called financial press are all reporting the “aw gee, this is so wonderful the homeowners won’t have their homes foreclosed on and the reforms in this bill are so sweeping that we have planned for the future that the taxpayer could actually turn a profit on these turds.”

If you believe that one, please contact me immediately as I have a printer and I love selling promises to stupid people.

The reality of what this will cost will start to hit home in about forty-eight hours. The insipid and insane FDIC insurance increase from $100,000 to $250,000 decades after inflation has already made the U.S. Dollar worth about $0.146  (That’s in 1967 dollars per the BLS) is only adding insult to injury. The real purpose was to prevent a bank run by wealthier depositors at smaller institutions which are on the GS and MS Christmas shopping list submitted as part of the “we’ll keep buying Treasuries if…” bailout provisions. Add in the costs that will be passed on to the smaller depositors and you can say goodbye to free checking, free online bill paying, free ATM usage, etc., etc. But don’t worry, increasing fees, creating unlimited reserves and diluting the monetary base is not inflationary because Ben told me so; allegedly.

Next will be an array of fees and tax increases across the government spectrum to raise revenues for everything from boarding an airplane to breathing as they have to raise money in the face of declining economic activity and since government is ruled by generally the least intelligent life forms other than those that lay their eggs on cowpies, it is about a 99.9% assurance that taxes and fees will be increased even as GDP sinks lower, and lower, and lower.

The one benefit for those taxpayers “who qualify” has been highlighted under Section 110 of the debt nationalization act, but there will be consequences to that. The mortgage forbearance program has been established to help homeowners before foreclosure proceedings begin or bankruptcy filings have been made. That could prove to be a great political benefit for any political party in power that is suffering from the market based reality of declining real estate prices and the inability of their constituents to read a contract. The other pork in the bill guarantees that biodiesel will be manufactured against the will of the market place and energy efficiency will be imposed as opposed to allowing market forces to take effect and do the job that Americans won’t do. None of the solutions or pork proposals are based on free market capitalism so Ellsworth Monkton Toohey, aka Lawrence Kudlow will have to go back to haranguing about “Goldilocks” and the fictional drug induced booming economy he perceives to see in his world of purple dinosaurs and hand mirrors on his dressing room desk.

And now the Consequences of Abandoning What Made America Great

The lesson of this past week is as obvious as the truth of the blue stained dress:

Capitalism, risk and the rule of law matter no more.

America became a great nation because we believed that individuals had the right to succeed or fail based on their abilities or lack thereof. The lesson we began teaching our children started to deteriorate with the ‘no scoreboard’ mentality at Little League Baseball games and furthered with the rewarding of mediocrity in our eduction system. That lesson has carried through to our political elites, ruling economic class and the middle class of America:

Failure is an option, and not a bad one at that; as long as it is your political opponent and their supporters.

Because you can never really fail as long as you force the remainder of the population to fork up blood, sweat, tears and dollars at gun point to reward the losers of society and let the misdeeds of the ruling class go unpunished. If an investor recognizes the shortcomings of a particular company and wishes to perform the legal act of shorting their equity because of the mistakes, the solution is simple; ban the activity on that stock and tell the investor that he’s evil for exercising his plans within the rule of law. However the CFO who maliciously assists in the creation of questionable investment vehicles for that same company has no fear of prosecution, as long as they are inside the game, purchasing the securities of the other players and government and becoming “too large to fail.”

That lesson has been transferred across our society and is best illustrated by the latest data that the mainstream media reported from this same inept government that approximately fifty seven percent of our population is receiving some sort of check or benefit from the government. So why not increase it to a nice, fat round sixty-five percent and tell the other thirty-five to shut up and “do their patriotic duty” to prevent the “safety net” from failing.

Instead of the process where the weak, inept and mismanaged are allowed to die and stronger companies with more dynamic models to replace them allowed to flourish, the good old boy network established by FDR and expanded by every President ever since has allowed a diversified group of companies that should not exist in a normal, straightforward Adam Smith model to survive every downturn or inept strategic decision. The result has been to pass judgment on companies not based on their capitalist performance, but on their ability to promote the “public good” or the contribution to the society as a whole. This is neither capitalist nor desirable in any society and the Soviet model best illustrates why with the automotive industry which flourished under the USSR Communist Party hierarchy, but  in reality produced substandard products at prices totally out of line with the realities of the marketplace. Now one more time, someone please tell me the difference between the failed Soviet auto industry and the derivative models and quant hedge fund programs invented by our zit faced math whizzes just one more time?

What this means for our future is a bleak attempt at the “Lost Decade” model of Japan except the extreme risk of hyperinflation has been introduced not just into the U.S. Currency but into fiat currencies worldwide. The question is which central bank will shut it down first and try to establish a sound monetary base instead of an unlimited inflationary based economic model. My fear is that the entitlement society that America has become along with the aging work force and lack of an industrialized base will make any type of recovery a purely digital fantasy with short term hope being destroyed with long term reality. As American economic reporting is a mark to fantasy  model at best, outright blatant political lies at worst, the lack of consistent and viable data measurements will result in a floundering nation with little desire by foreign investors to plow trillions into the black hole located in the District of Columbia. In the end, we will not witness ’stagflation’ per se; the consequences will be a persistent, grinding inflation with negative economic growth, some quarters worse than others and vice versa, destroying the viability of the current American system of the Federal Reserve central banking model and the political class shall emerge being viewed as the savior as opposed to self-reliance and the Constitutional alternatives.
The end result of two weeks of hysteria and rhetoric is that our Primary Dealership network for the Fed will remain intact and the banking system is now subservient to the political parties in control. This two shall see a reversal of roles as the ecnomic decline accelerates. The new era of emerging superbanks, able to create a new fractional reserve system with the limits only being the ability of the display screen to show numbers and the IT departments at the banks learning how to calculate “quadrillions” into the formulas has begun. As the superbanks in the U.S. and Europe begin to absorb those institutions deemed worthy of saving, billions, perhaps hundreds of billions of depositor’s wealth will be wiped out in uninsured accounts, money market funds that collapse and equity liquidations.

Welcome to the brave new world boys and girls.

Mr. Toohey would be proud.
