New term. And no, not in Latin this time. This is the brainchild of Andrea Shea King and ThirdWaveDave..
We need a name for the collective criminal enterprise that is our Federal Government. Democrat. Republican. Marxist. All of them, because they’re all in it together. The name?

THE COMBINE

A combine is defined as a combination of persons or groups for the furtherance of their political, commercial, or other interests, as a syndicate or cartel.

Uh, yeah. That’s it. That’s it EXACTLY.

Children, the Republicans are going to sell us out. Do you know why? Because Obama and Reid and Pelosi and Boehner and McConnell and Cantor . . . they’re all on the same team. The Combine. Obama’s little hissy fit this afternoon? It’s all playacting for our benefit – to keep us fooled into believing that they are “representing the American people”. They represent THEMSELVES. Their priority is looting the government for as much money as possible before the economy implodes, getting that wealth ferreted away somehow, and then using that same wealth to seize control after the implosion.

It’s ALL about the COMBINE.

And this time, it is going to be for somewhere between $2.0 and $2.4 trillion dollars. And it’s all going to go offshore or otherwise off the grid, laundered through unions, foreign governments and sympathetic corporations, which will then launder it right back into the pockets of the Combine.

It’s time to start buying and storing potable water and storing gasoline. Silver is still under $40 per ounce. And, of course, ammunition. Lots and lots of ammunition.

Bernanke Confirms QE3 A Go

“When you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing; when you see that money is flowing to those who deal not in goods, but in favors; when you see that men get rich more easily by graft than by work, and your laws no longer protect you against them, but protect them against you…you may know that your society is doomed.”
- Ayn Rand – Atlas Shrugged

The Citation

You knew this was coming. Also, the fake “debt ceiling” will be raised by $2T. Geithner told Congress on May 4th that that was what was going to happen, repeatedly stressing that “they” needed $2T to spend BEFORE THE ELECTION. Everything was relative to the date of the 2012 election. I PROMISE YOU, the Republicans will fold within days and the original $2T demand from Geithner WILL be given to Obama. Mitch McConnell has already leaked how it will be done – in three “installments”. Everything you are seeing right now is pure theater. And we are falling for it like the total chumps that we are.

Here is the May 4th citation:

Talk is starting to enter the metals trade that gold could be on the brink of a massive “parabolic” run akin to the Minneapolis Wheat market of 2008, wherein the price of wheat increased almost 500%. Assuming a starting point of $1500 gold, that would take gold to $7500 per ounce. But don’t worry. I’m sure that will have ZERO effect on crude oil prices – or at the very least will be offset by all of the wonderful efficiency advances in “green energy”.

One more time, because people still aren’t comprehending this. Bernanke is not trying to “help” the economy. Bernanke does not actually believe that printing more money is going to “help” or “stimulate” anything, because actually stimulating the economy is NOT his objective. His objective, with the Obama-Soros regime, is collapsing and destroying the economy. Bernanke is not “surprised” at the fact that economic growth is nil and that there is no recovery. No one is that stupid. Don’t get me wrong – Bernanke is indeed stupid – but NO ONE IS THAT STUPID. Bernanke is a criminal and a liar who, for some reason, be it bribery, threats against him or his family, or just plain Marxist malice, is consciously trying to collapse the economy. Read this over and over again until you fully understand. There is no rational explanation for any of this, just as there is no rational explanation for throwing gasoline on a fire that you claim you are trying to extinguish. We are at war, and these people are the enemy just as sure as the Nazis and Japanese were the enemy in WW2.

Silver is up 2.50 per ounce and gold is making new all-time highs, and we will probably see $1600 gold by Friday’s close. Corn is up 70 cents per bushel since YESTERDAY.

Guys, when I say no naked short hedges and stay the hell out of the way, I really, really mean it. Shorting an inflationary market is not managing your risk. It is suicide. The reason these brokers and consultants keep preaching to you that you need to “hedge” is because they are imbeciles who only know a few buzzwords and catchphrases, which they parrot mindlessly because that is all they can do. They aren’t “smart”. My God, they can’t even figure out that being short in an inflating market is going to result in UNNECESSARY LOSSES and will convert your physical commodity inventory back into evaporating U.S. dollars. If the risk is wealth destruction from holding U.S. dollars, how stupid do you have to be to recommend that people convert their physical assets back into U.S. dollars via uber-leveraged derivatives – and then call that “risk management”? Seriously. Sit in stillness with that.

The whole story …


Ron Paul asks Bernanke if Gold is money?

Bernanke says NO!

Well of course it is not to the Fed because … to them MONEY is actually worthless paper, ink and thin air. So much thin air that with a click of your mouse all of your savings, retirement and paycheck can vanish in a nano second.

There is no requirement in either US or State Constitutions that compel us to be suicidal

Administration Quietly Signs Cross-Border Trucking Agreement with Mexico.

Last Thursday, Department of Transportation (DOT) Secretary Ray LaHood quietly signed a controversial cross-border trucking agreement in Mexico City with Mexico’s Secretary of Communications and Transportation. (DOT Press Release, July 6, 2011) The comment period on the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA) proposed regulations for a pilot program had closed in early May after receiving more than 2,000 comments. (Houston Chronicle, July 6, 2011; 76 Fed. Reg. 20,807, Apr. 13, 2011)

The cross-border trucking program with Mexico has been in dispute since the North American Free Trade Agreement was signed in 1994. (CNN, April 27, 2011) NAFTA originally authorized Mexican trucks to transport goods into the U.S. beyond the border zone, to begin in 1995. (NAFTA Secretariat) Although President Clinton signed NAFTA into law, he refused to implement the cross-border trucking provisions of the agreement with Mexico, thereby limiting Mexican tractor-trailer trucks entering the U.S. to a radius of 20- to 50-miles of the ports of entry. (Secretariat File No. USA-MEX-98-2008-01; FMCSA Pilot Program on NAFTA Long-Haul Trucking Provisions) At that point, the Mexican trucks would have to transfer their load onto a U.S.-domiciled carrier. (The Texas Tribune, Jan. 23, 2011)
