I just ran across this information on the http://www.americac2c.org/ website.
It is information we all need to know about before it is to late. Daily our rights are being taken away by the politicians in Washington.
I have said this before and say it again.
Barack Obama sits on a powder keg and has a lighted match in hand. It is increasingly clear setting match to fuse is no big problem for him.
You might want to keep in mind should you grab the bulls by the horns and wade into these bills that on the surface they look benign. Politicians will also say “well they were not meant for that” (whatever their definition for THAT is).
A great example of THAT is the “eminent domain” issues that have sprung up in the last few years. In the beginning that law was never intended to deprive the citizenry of their property for the advancement of some private conglomerate that today wants to profit.
We the citizens need to rise up and protect one another or face ALONE the same fate ourselves.
2 VERY dangerous Bills that were “slipped in” and “hidden” within the folds of HR 1388, Obama’s Forced Servitude Bill that was passed by the House on Friday. The Senate is voting on HR 1388 Monday which also contains
H Amdt. 49 os HB 1388. revoking your right to assemble or protest, & S 22 a huge Gun-Control /Land grab bill.
Say goodbye to your 1st Ammendment. The “GIVE Act” HB 1388.” “to prohibit organizations from attempting to influence legislation; organize or engage in protests, petitions, boycotts, or strikes; and assist, promote, or deter union organizing” of the “Generations Invigorating Volunteerism and Education Act”. The “GIVE Act” HB 1388 passed by the House on Friday, will be voted on by the Senate Monday 23rd.
H. Amdt. 49 os HB 1388 is going to make criminals out of the PEACEFUL resistance movement. This covers all, even left wing groups who like to protest the war, the environment and etc.
Yes, the main stream media and left wing groups such as the “Southern Law Poverty Center” and the ADL will lump movements such as this one with Neo-Nazis, White extremists and etc, just like they did with the militia movements back during the ’90s.
Please see H.R.1388 “The Give Act” Mein Führer Requires YOU to SERVE 3 Years, (and
GIVE HIM YOUR GUNS & YOUR LAND & SHUT UP!!)
See the bill text here:
Say goodbye to your guns & your land. S 22 is a mammoth bill comprised of over 190 separate pieces of legislation and was quietly “tucked” within the massive Omnibus Spending Bill, but now it has been slipped into the crevices of the massive “Forced Servitude” Bill HB1388. S. 22 includes a rule that will not allow pro-gun representatives to offer amendments.
There are serious Second Amendment concerns with this legislation. S 22 will greatly expand the amount of land controlled by the National Park Service (NPS). Because the rights of lawful gun owners are restricted on NPS land, the bill will create even more “anti-Second Amendment” zones among other things.

The House GIVEth, and the government taketh away (our freedoms)
Are you familiar with the Hitler Youth program of Nazi Germany?
If not you should be.
Take a look at what happened in Germany then decide if this is appropriate for American children.
As benign as it might seem somehow compulsory associated with volunteerism somehow does not quite line up in my books. “The GIVE Act” and “The SERVE Act” another primrose path?
The Hitler Youth was a logical extension of Hitler’s belief that the future of Nazi Germany was its children. The Hitler Youth was seen as being as important to a child as school was. In the early years of the Nazi government, Hitler had made it clear as to what he expected German children to be like:
“The weak must be chiseled away. I want young men and women who can suffer pain. A young German must be as swift as a greyhound, as tough as leather, and as hard as Krupp’s steel.”
Nazi education schemes part fitted in with this but Hitler wanted to occupy the minds of the young in Nazi Germany even more.
Movements for youngsters were part of German culture and the Hitler Youth had been created in the 1920’s. By 1933 its membership stood at 100,000. After Hitler came to power, all other youth movements were abolished and as a result the Hitler Youth grew quickly. In 1936, the figure stood at 4 million members. In 1936, it became all but compulsory to join the Hitler Youth. Youths could avoid doing any active service if they paid their subscription but this became all but impossible after 1939.
The Hitler Youth catered for 10 to 18 year olds. There were separate organisations for boys and girls. The task of the boys section was to prepare the boys for military service. For girls, the organisation prepared them for motherhood.
Boys at 10, joined the Deutsches Jungvolk (German Young People) until the age of 13 when they transferred to the Hitler Jugend (Hitler Youth) until the age of 18. In 1936, the writer J R Tunus wrote about the activities of the Hitler Jugend. He stated that part of their “military athletics” (Wehrsport) included marching, bayonet drill, grenade throwing, trench digging, map reading, gas defence, use of dugouts, how to get under barbed wire and pistol shooting.
Girls, at the age of 10, joined the Jungmadelbund (League of Young Girls) and at the age of 14 transferred to the Bund Deutscher Madel (League of German Girls). Girls had to be able to run 60 metres in 14 seconds, throw a ball 12 metres, complete a 2 hour march, swim 100 metres and know how to make a bed.
The whole Hitler Youth movement was overseen by Balder von Shirach.
To the outside world, the Hitler Youth seemed to personify German discipline. In fact, this image was far from accurate. School teachers complained that boys and girls were so tired from attending evening meetings of the Hitler Youth, that they could barely stay awake the next day at school. Also by 1938, attendance at Hitler Youth meetings was so poor – barely 25% – that the authorities decided to tighten up attendance with the 1939 law making attendance compulsory.
The mayor of Alexandria VA issues a protest over the possibility of the Gitmo prisoners being housed in his town.
William D. Euille (D) is not a happy camper as he finds Alexandria is on the short list as final destination for all or a few of the Gitmo detainees.
Most of us fully understand his reluctance of wanting these terrorists in his own back yard.
Here is the hitch.
His mindset is not different than most other officials thinking the shut down of Gitmo is the best deal since sliced bread. Not many of them want the detainees landing on their own front stoop either.
Actually I think what is good for the goose is good for the gander.
If you think it up and support it … well then be responsible.
Belly up to the bar and lead the charge.
In this case the charge is detainees in your own house.
Personally I feel if they need to be spread into the communities of the USA? … first stop is the Lincoln Bedroom.
It does not take rocket science to figure out if those leading the charge for some of this change were called on FIRST to sacrifice for it the scenery of today would be drastically different.
Daily it becomes more clear how certain members of congress and the senate need to be tarred and feathered. They are quick to stand on a pulpit and rant about those in charge of AIG and the like for running the businesses into the ground when they themselves are equally or more culpable.
Last night the President stood on his podium and talked about the change of NO DEBT or living beyond our means.
What can he be thinking? OH THAT’S RIGHT HE IS NOT!
Or again he thinks ‘we the public’ are total fools.
Does anyone else out there understand when this man speaks a lie of some kind fly’s out?
Enough is ENOUGH!
The following is a letter sent on Tuesday by Jake DeSantis, an executive vice president of the American International Group’s financial products unit, to Edward M. Liddy, the chief executive of A.I.G.
DEAR Mr. Liddy,
It is with deep regret that I submit my notice of resignation from A.I.G. Financial Products. I hope you take the time to read this entire letter. Before describing the details of my decision, I want to offer some context:
I am proud of everything I have done for the commodity and equity divisions of A.I.G.-F.P. I was in no way involved in — or responsible for — the credit default swap transactions that have hamstrung A.I.G. Nor were more than a handful of the 400 current employees of A.I.G.-F.P. Most of those responsible have left the company and have conspicuously escaped the public outrage.
After 12 months of hard work dismantling the company — during which A.I.G. reassured us many times we would be rewarded in March 2009 — we in the financial products unit have been betrayed by A.I.G. and are being unfairly persecuted by elected officials. In response to this, I will now leave the company and donate my entire post-tax retention payment to those suffering from the global economic downturn. My intent is to keep none of the money myself.
I take this action after 11 years of dedicated, honorable service to A.I.G. I can no longer effectively perform my duties in this dysfunctional environment, nor am I being paid to do so. Like you, I was asked to work for an annual salary of $1, and I agreed out of a sense of duty to the company and to the public officials who have come to its aid. Having now been let down by both, I can no longer justify spending 10, 12, 14 hours a day away from my family for the benefit of those who have let me down.
You and I have never met or spoken to each other, so I’d like to tell you about myself. I was raised by schoolteachers working multiple jobs in a world of closing steel mills. My hard work earned me acceptance to M.I.T., and the institute’s generous financial aid enabled me to attend. I had fulfilled my American dream.
I started at this company in 1998 as an equity trader, became the head of equity and commodity trading and, a couple of years before A.I.G.’s meltdown last September, was named the head of business development for commodities. Over this period the equity and commodity units were consistently profitable — in most years generating net profits of well over $100 million. Most recently, during the dismantling of A.I.G.-F.P., I was an integral player in the pending sale of its well-regarded commodity index business to UBS. As you know, business unit sales like this are crucial to A.I.G.’s effort to repay the American taxpayer.
The profitability of the businesses with which I was associated clearly supported my compensation. I never received any pay resulting from the credit default swaps that are now losing so much money. I did, however, like many others here, lose a significant portion of my life savings in the form of deferred compensation invested in the capital of A.I.G.-F.P. because of those losses. In this way I have personally suffered from this controversial activity — directly as well as indirectly with the rest of the taxpayers.
I have the utmost respect for the civic duty that you are now performing at A.I.G. You are as blameless for these credit default swap losses as I am. You answered your country’s call and you are taking a tremendous beating for it.
But you also are aware that most of the employees of your financial products unit had nothing to do with the large losses. And I am disappointed and frustrated over your lack of support for us. I and many others in the unit feel betrayed that you failed to stand up for us in the face of untrue and unfair accusations from certain members of Congress last Wednesday and from the press over our retention payments, and that you didn’t defend us against the baseless and reckless comments made by the attorneys general of New York and Connecticut.
My guess is that in October, when you learned of these retention contracts, you realized that the employees of the financial products unit needed some incentive to stay and that the contracts, being both ethical and useful, should be left to stand. That’s probably why A.I.G. management assured us on three occasions during that month that the company would “live up to its commitment” to honor the contract guarantees.
That may be why you decided to accelerate by three months more than a quarter of the amounts due under the contracts. That action signified to us your support, and was hardly something that one would do if he truly found the contracts “distasteful.”
That may also be why you authorized the balance of the payments on March 13.
At no time during the past six months that you have been leading A.I.G. did you ask us to revise, renegotiate or break these contracts — until several hours before your appearance last week before Congress.
I think your initial decision to honor the contracts was both ethical and financially astute, but it seems to have been politically unwise. It’s now apparent that you either misunderstood the agreements that you had made — tacit or otherwise — with the Federal Reserve, the Treasury, various members of Congress and Attorney General Andrew Cuomo of New York, or were not strong enough to withstand the shifting political winds.
You’ve now asked the current employees of A.I.G.-F.P. to repay these earnings. As you can imagine, there has been a tremendous amount of serious thought and heated discussion about how we should respond to this breach of trust.
As most of us have done nothing wrong, guilt is not a motivation to surrender our earnings. We have worked 12 long months under these contracts and now deserve to be paid as promised. None of us should be cheated of our payments any more than a plumber should be cheated after he has fixed the pipes but a careless electrician causes a fire that burns down the house.
Many of the employees have, in the past six months, turned down job offers from more stable employers, based on A.I.G.’s assurances that the contracts would be honored. They are now angry about having been misled by A.I.G.’s promises and are not inclined to return the money as a favor to you.
The only real motivation that anyone at A.I.G.-F.P. now has is fear. Mr. Cuomo has threatened to “name and shame,” and his counterpart in Connecticut, Richard Blumenthal, has made similar threats — even though attorneys general are supposed to stand for due process, to conduct trials in courts and not the press.
So what am I to do? There’s no easy answer. I know that because of hard work I have benefited more than most during the economic boom and have saved enough that my family is unlikely to suffer devastating losses during the current bust. Some might argue that members of my profession have been overpaid, and I wouldn’t disagree.
That is why I have decided to donate 100 percent of the effective after-tax proceeds of my retention payment directly to organizations that are helping people who are suffering from the global downturn. This is not a tax-deduction gimmick; I simply believe that I at least deserve to dictate how my earnings are spent, and do not want to see them disappear back into the obscurity of A.I.G.’s or the federal government’s budget. Our earnings have caused such a distraction for so many from the more pressing issues our country faces, and I would like to see my share of it benefit those truly in need.
On March 16 I received a payment from A.I.G. amounting to $742,006.40, after taxes. In light of the uncertainty over the ultimate taxation and legal status of this payment, the actual amount I donate may be less — in fact, it may end up being far less if the recent House bill raising the tax on the retention payments to 90 percent stands. Once all the money is donated, you will immediately receive a list of all recipients.
This choice is right for me. I wish others at A.I.G.-F.P. luck finding peace with their difficult decision, and only hope their judgment is not clouded by fear.
Mr. Liddy, I wish you success in your commitment to return the money extended by the American government, and luck with the continued unwinding of the company’s diverse businesses — especially those remaining credit default swaps. I’ll continue over the short term to help make sure no balls are dropped, but after what’s happened this past week I can’t remain much longer — there is too much bad blood. I’m not sure how you will greet my resignation, but at least Attorney General Blumenthal should be relieved that I’ll leave under my own power and will not need to be “shoved out the door.”
As I watch Glen Beck on television and radio personality Robert D. Raiford of the John Boy and Billy show struggle with economics and the different messages they get from economic “experts” I will struggled to explain in layman’s terms as best I can. What is really going on with all these economics and why the information is so different from one source to the next? I will do my best to make what is occurring as clear as possible.
Glen Beck struggles with the concept of the Federal Reserve and its Chairman Ben Bernanke printing trillions of dollars and the inflationary damage it will do to the economy. To understand his motivations it’s necessary to go back in time to the Great Depression and John Maynard Keynes.
During the 1920’s the stock market had a huge bubble as we all know that burst in 1929. Everyone blames the Great Depression on the stock market. But for Mr. Bernanke and thousands of economists we know that’s false. Government actions make a routine cyclical recession into a worldwide depression eventually leading to the rise of Hitler and WWII. The average unemployment rate under Roosevelt in the 1930’s was a catastrophic 17.2%! One of the great if not the greatest tragedy in human existence only rivaled by the Black Death that swept the world several times in the 1340’s, killing 30 to 60% of Europeans as well as the 17th and 18th century plagues. Unlike the plague the depression and world war was totally man made catastrophes.
What the government did to make a regular cyclical recession into disaster was three huge blunders. On the federal level Hoover and Roosevelt raised taxes on the rich from 25% to 63% then Roosevelt to 79%. Sound familiar? Hoover increased federal spending 55% on various government projects like the Hoover Dam. Sound familiar? George Bush did the same with the wars, education and drug programs for seniors. Roosevelt further increased federal spending with his New Deal programs, increased business regulation and increased taxes on the wealthy. Sound familiar? Hoover raised tariffs 41.5%. Sound familiar? Obama was battling it out in the primaries bragging he could raise tariffs the fastest. It’s as if Bush and Obama are following the script of Hoover and Roosevelt to a T.
And one aspect that is lost in all this is the Federal Reserve did some truly asinine moves with the money supply. When the recession hit the Fed decreased the money supply 27%! Ouch! The exact opposite of what should have been done. Later in 1937 the Fed doubled the reserve requirement again throwing the country into depression. Monumental blunders that were not lost on Bernanke who studied the Great Depression during his college years.
Bernanke is determined not to repeat the blunders of the past but is going in the opposite direction with a vengeance. And here is where economist differs in their approaches.
Bernanke and democrats in general are students of John Maynard Keynes the great Leviathan economist during the 1930’s and 40’s. These Keynesian economists believe, although they will deny it, that government and people of superior intelligence such as themselves are equipped to deal with all the economic problems of the world. Super smart people like Bernie Madoff, Chuck Schumer, Michael Milken, Bernard Ebbers, Dennis Kozlowski, and Kenneth Lay from all walks of life feel entitled to rip off or impose government policies on people because they all have a underlying contempt for the unwashed masses. They feel superior and entitled to power and privilege.
John Maynard Keynes was fond of tapping his two fingers on the desk when conducting business hearings during WWII when contractors begged for government approval to raise prices to keep up with ramped inflation that was occurring on the black market of the time. The money supply was up 121% but inflation must have been a figment of these contractors’ imaginations. The finger tap on the desk literally represented his signal to his colleges that the head ant on top of the hill was signaling with his antennas to his comrades below that the shit was about to roll down hill. In other words he thought the person pleading was full of shit. This disrespect for contractors and their companies is blatantly apparent to readers of Keynes. And that is why so many politicians are drawn to Keynes. Central planning and a feeling of superiority and privilege over the stupid ignorant masses that are too stupid to see the big picture.
Radio personality Robert D. Raiford complains of Keynes “paradox of thrift.” Essentially this theory states that if we all save our money it may be personally good for us as individuals but is bad for the economy. Raiford, a highly educated man with a master’s degree, must have received some pretty bias economic education and like millions of Americans struggles with even the most basic understanding of the subject. The problem with Keynes is his theory like so many of his theories doesn’t hold up to reality. Increased savings go into banks. Banks are in the business to lend money in normal times. Someone will borrow the money and spend it. Second if everyone saved prices will drop. People would start to be attracted to lower prices and spend. Even the biggest savers in the world have a marginal propensity to consume. Raiford because of economic ignorance prevalent throughout society fails to connect the dots and discard this Keynesian myth.
And there you have it. A lot of economic disinformation is being taught and used by politicians, personalities and even our Federal Reserve Chairman. Mr. Keynes did a lot of good brilliant work on developing a national economic model overview referred to as the Gross Domestic Product. He is an economic giant and his concepts are taught but he was wrong on the paradox of thrift, liquidity trap and many of his depression era theories. Our Federal Chairman is a strong follower of these theories. God help us all.
Liquidity trap. What is it and why is it significant? A liquidity trap is a situation in monetary economics in which a country’s interest rate has been lowered nearly or equal to zero to avoid a recession. Sound familiar? Our Federal Funds rate or commonly referred to overnight rate of lending, is currently 0.20%. And no one is lending. The market is not stimulated. Banks are keeping assets in short term cash accounts and avoiding long term investments making the recession worse. Mr. Bernanke is reliving the same liquidity trap that Keynes experienced in the 1930’s. So Mr. Bernanke is telling all those who will listen to pump trillions into the economy to get the economy moving again. And there you have the well intentioned motive of Mr. Bernanke although like Keynes the well intentioned theories will prove to be a monumental disaster for the country.
Why are banks really holding out? Politically you could argue the dysfunctional nut jobs in Washington DC are destroying banking confidence with crazy bail outs, buy outs, insane tax policies, insane mark to market accounting rules and you would be partially correct. The politicians in Washington are a disaster. And it’s both parties. Both parties need to be retired to the ash heap of history along with the Whigs, Federalist and Bull Moose political parties. The Democrats and Republicans of today are completely and totally incompetent to do anything. The federal government should be frozen and stored away in some deep freezer only to be thawed out after the adults have cleaned up the mess they created. So yes the political situation is hurting the economy. But that’s not the major reason banks are holding out.
Banker being bankers are looking at possible future inflation. Why is this so important to a banker? Bankers have been burned so many times by government it just comes naturally. In the 60’s and early 70’s banks made low interest loans only to be burned by inflationary federal government and Federal Reserve policies that created inflation in the late 70’s and early 80’s. Bankers made 5% loans in 1973 only to see loan rates climb to 9% in 1974 then 18% in 1981. The inflation rate went from 3% to 15%. So if you’re a banker and you made that nice 5% loan for 30 years guess what? Eight years into the loan the inflation rate is 15% and you’re in the red. Your books are a disaster full of low interest loans and you either have to go out of business or make very high risk loans to recoup your massive losses. And this is what happened to many savings and loan companies that lead directly to the savings and loan disaster of the late 80’s and early 90’s. It was bad government fiscal and monetary policy leading to the destruction of hundreds of lending institutions and the loss of thousands of jobs. The government created the Resolution Trust Fund to clean up the mess it had created.
Then after the S&L mess was cleaned up we got the Community Reinvestment Act, Sarbanes-Oxley, Freddie Mae, Fannie Mac and political backstabbing. Banks were forced to make bad loans by the government to unworthy borrowers, Fannie and Freddie buy and sell toxic assets throughout the banking and financial system, AIG and other politically connected firms buy the toxic assets by the billions for political favors from Washington.
Bribes, payoffs, bonuses of every kind imaginable were made and the system crashed. Insiders on Wall Street demanded payback for the bogus paper coming out of Fannie and Freddie and then came the bail outs. Fraud and chaos once again perpetrated by the politicians in Washington. These robbers just cannot resist the temptation to screw with the banking system of America with their insane schemes. It’s like the crooks and mafia joined forces with the police and are ransacking every bank they can get to.
And now the final blow to bankers’ confidence. The Federal Reserve assisted by Congress pumps up the monetary base from $800 billion to $1,800 billion. Bankers being bankers are not the stupid twits all the Keynesians in congress think they are. They can read the Federal Reserve data. They can do the math. They are bankers. They passed business calculus and accounting in college unlike our idiots in Washington with their political science degrees of useless information. Would any sane banker make a loan at 5% if the inflation rate is going to be 15% in a couple of years? Gee let me think on that one Mr. Frank and Mr. Dodd. It’s really quite simple to clear thinking bankers and anyone else paying attention. Only blundering politicians and Keynesian economists who think they can pull a fast one over the dumb business bumpkins are fooled by this buffoonery.
So what is the real deal? Economics is part science and part psychological. Having a communist educated idiot in the White House and a bunch of thieves in congress is not the way to inspire confidence. What would I do?
Cut federal spending. The last thing the economy needs is more idiots spending taxpayer’s money. Privatize social security, eliminate all aid to seniors and cut them a check every month and let them deal with it. Billions and billions would be saved in useless bureaucracies and more importantly the money would go to the people. Get rid of the departments of education and housing. Complete and utter waste of money if there ever was one. All the money in the world isn’t going to make a dumb kid smart.
Take away the power of the Federal Reserve to set any kind of interest rate. Batting 500 in baseball is good but not when it comes to banking. Leave the banks alone to charge what they want to for interest rates. As a safeguard pass an act similar to Glass-Segal limiting banks to no more than 5% market share in the United States. Not needed but it will make the monopoly conspiracy theory people happy. It’s past time to strip the Federal Reserve of its power over interest rates.
Cut the corporate and capital gains taxes to 25% and 10%. Sending a signal that comrade Obama is not going to pull a Chairman Mao would be a nice gesture to the folks who actually work for a living.
Better yet get a flat income tax and get rid of all other federal taxes including tariffs, corporate and capital gains. Do that and the boom will last a decade or more. Everyone who wants a job will have one. Private markets and employers actually work for a living. Government is nothing more than a thief or at best a referee.
And that is the fundamental differences in economist. The demand side Keynesians believe they are superior and resort to government power and money to bully people and businesses around. Their policies lead to disaster time and time again. Fascist, socialist and communist are drawn to the economics of Carl Marx and John Maynard Keynes.
The supply side Milton Freidman types believe in free markets and little government interference. Adam Smith in his book Wealth of Nations back in 1776 pretty much captured the magic of free enterprise 223 years ago. Nothing really has changed much. Nations that pursue free economic systems prosper and those that don’t get poor. It’s not complex.
People claim Wall Street greed brought down the house of cards. Nothing could be further from the truth. Washington’s constant meddling in the banking system decade after decade brought it all crashing down. Why the banks? Well because as Willie Sutton said “that’s where the money is.”
And what is in it for politicians in the long run to destroy the economic system of its country? Besides the obvious political power and pay offs where will all this lead? Inflation will destroy elderly independence and wipe out the middle and upper middle classes. Obama wants a classless society. Inflation is the quickest way to get there.
Socialized medicine will lead to rationing. Who will control the rationing? Government. Favored political groups like minorities and gays will get preferential treatment as they do now with so many government programs. The elderly reduced to poverty by inflation will see the most severe rationing. No money no power. Dictatorship. Just as Roosevelt and Keynes enjoyed during the height of WWII.
And the ironic thing is the people will praise Obama just like they did Roosevelt when it’s all over. I guess it would be similar to John McCain praising his torturers for quitting the torture. It sure does feel good when they quit breaking your arms doesn’t it John?
And there you have it Mr. Beck and Raiford. I strongly urge you to read up on libertarian principals and economics. Freidman, Smith, CATO, Heritage and the Libertarian Party are and always will be sources of inspiration. Tomas Payne in his Common Sense pamphlets need to be reprinted and distributed to all freedom loving Americans.
The world is a different place than it was in 1929. Information passes quickly to the masses. If I and millions can see for ourselves what is happening to the monetary base there is hope. We can remove the tyrants from power. As Mr. Beck states this isn’t a Republican or Democratic thing. Both political parties are moving in the same direction, total power. They are fighting over the spoils of power not differing principals. Both parties need to be removed from power and social engineering needs to be put at the state and local level where it belongs.
If Mr. Beck or Raiford read this insipid little blog I hope it helps. Don’t Tread on Me.
