The Fed owns you. F**k the Fed!

So far, I’ve been plucking the low-hanging fruit. The truth of each post is painfully obvious. And there is plenty more of that be had. I’ll get to all of it before Election Day.

But there are one or two BIG, somewhat complex issues that will require you, if you’re a responsible adult, to do a little reading or research to fully understand. It is possible that many of you already know this stuff; perhaps better than I do. (Wait. Let’s not get carried away here.)

To the threat:

I want you to sit at your laptop and cup your hands together tightly over the keyboard. Have someone fill your hands with water. Now without spilling a drop, type a comment to this post.

Stupid, right? I hope no one tried it. If you did, there’s no point in you reading any further. You’re beyond help.

Well, that type of trick has been what the GOVERNMENT SAYS is the primary mission of the Federal Reserve. Keep inflation at bay while keeping unemployment low. The two are opposing forces. Left alone without interference they oscillate against each other in a healthy fashion. You have cyclical price increases and decreases. But you don’t have a constant state of inflation, a la Fed.

Recently, the Joe Duh Regime announced that they are ‘requiring” the Fed to add “creating equity in outcome” for minorities. You know who they are. They are the people the Joe Duh Regime thinks are too stupid to compete in the world without Mommy Government protecting them. I’m pretty sure Morgan Freeman, Charles Payne and Candace Owens, among millions of other “minority” people, would laugh at that.

So, from the cheap seats, the Federal Reserve is a benign creature created to look out for your interests.

Well, boys and girls, it’s not.

In order to truly understand this YOU MUST read The Creature From Jekyll Island, by Griffin. This is a heavily documented history of the Fed from it’s founding. What you will read will astound and infuriate you. The Fed, our equivalent of the Bank of England and the European Central bank, is a creature created to seal in concrete the power of our Central government. It also provides them the luxury of throwing away money, recently many trillions of dollars; to create the illusion they are giving you things. This keeps the unwashed away from the palace gates; keeps you numb nobodies sedated with ever depreciating money.

If time is an issue, there may be a good version of Cliff Notes for Creature. The ones I’ve seen online are pretty lame. No explanation of terms, etc. But read it!

People think the Fed is answerable to the government. That’s how it was sold to congress to create it. It is actually a conglomeration of powerful banks that hold an unacceptable amount of power OVER the government and utterly over YOU.

There are others who hold Fed shares, but the big Fed powerhouses are Bank of America, JP Morgan, Citigroup and Wells Fargo. (It would be worth checking to see if Blackrock and Vanguard hold shares, considering what I posted here.) If they were the least interested in the common good that would be great. But they are not. They are interested in their bottom line, first, last and always.

Jefferson and Madison fought against establishing the first central bank because they knew from experience that ALL governments eventually treated central banks as money presses. They would abuse their offices to create mountains of debt, foisted on the people. It is a certain path to permanent inflation and a speculatory nightmare. And they were right, of course.

It’s a threat to liberty and our republic. You’ll see why in just a bit.

The book details how the Fed loans the United States and other countries insane amounts of money. How the loans are abused and how they are almost NEVER paid back. The big banks running the Fed don’t want the loans paid back for two reasons.

  1. Fractionalized Lending. The Fed, like all banks, with a bookkeeping trick, loan the same billions – or now trillions – of dollars over and over again. If you take out a loan at your bank the credit is based on the same money that has been loaned out again and again. That is why they don’t want you to ever actually pay it back. They just want you to service the interest for as long as they can possibly drag it out. So long as you do that, they have income and they own the underlying asset you borrowed against. The Fed operates the same way. And who knows how many times the times the loan money has been fractionalized. Because the Fed has never been audited. The government has no power over the Fed. They presently hold all the power over the government. And the Fed is perfectly happy to see our government and all governments just service the debt because it is ALL income for the bank. None of the loans, except for the first loan on the first non-fractionalized dollar, represent a loss for the Fed – the big banks. It’s all money in.
  2. When the government borrows money from the Fed it is printed or created digitally with absolutely no value behind it whatsoever. Every penny is fiat money. Every dollar printed devalues every dollar you earn or have. That is why the Fed NEVER loses. In fact, they will happily refinance your debt and put you in deeper hock to them. IT’S ALL INCOME.

Why do you think refinancing YOUR loans is a service advertised online and on TV? They don’t want your house and they don’t want the principal to be paid back. They want an unending stream of cash. And they hope you live a long and healthy life. Because when you croak the estate liquidates all debt. The bank’s loan is paid off. And that is what they fear.

Because of fictionalized lending, assuming your loan was the ninth on the books for those particular dollars, all but 10% of the money returned against principal vanishes. It’s gone as if it never existed. Poof.

It is impossible to know how many times the Fed has chopped up (fractionalized) the money it lends. Considering the insane amount of money that has gone out in loans over the last decade, tens of trillions, if they were only slicing and dicing 6 or seven times per dollar lent, I think our inflation rate would be approximately a gazillion percent per year. But it is not.

What happens if our dollar get so weak (Joe Duh is working on it) that nations realize they can pay of their debts or refi with China or the Saudis and let them pay it off?

Ruh-roh Shaggy!

That money only exists as a U.S. Bond. Do you think the executives at the big banks are going to take it on the chin and hand back their salaries when the money goes POOF? That wouldn’t even solve the problem. No, they are going to keep every dime.

Consider the 2008 crash. The bigs were up to their eyeballs in crap debt created with all this easy money. They decided to make some extra skim off of debt and started a casino making chips with worthless paper bundled with good stuff. The chips were called collateralized debt obligations (CDO) and credit default swaps (CDS). The dumb and the greedy couldn’t get enough of the game. The cautious thought they could use them as a hedge or a write-off. The smart few realized the chips were dangerous and they could see the end coming.

When people started calling out this activity, Glenn Beck was ahead of the game in the media, the chatter on the business channels was, “Well, It’s just big investment firms and whales playing hot potato with some shitty paper. It’s not like they are selling these things to Joe Six-Pack.”

Then, after a year of warnings from the observant, a couple of firms ended up with more of this garbage on their books than the entire net worth of their corporations. Boom.

The reason they had all this funny money and bad debt washing around can be traced back to the policies and practices of the Fed. Hey, the players were just imitating the Fed’s insane, irresponsible behavior.

What should have happened was too painful to consider.   You were told that if the banks and whales were permitted to go belly up then everyone would go broke. True, a lot of people would have taken a 1929-like hit.   But that is and was recoverable in an environment where the government and the big banks aren’t taking warm showers together all the time. It was true in 1929 and it was true in 2008. It will be true again, when they tell you it’s not. And that’s right soon. Soldier on.

So instead of letting the all the big guys go under, the government scared you with the Depression boogieman and set about making their rich friends whole. And instead of freezing the Fed and going in and auditing ITS practices, they green lighted them to print every dime needed to bail out the players at the casino. The result was huge losses for you, foreclosures among you or your friends while the players were made whole or nearly whole. It cost only $1trillion…because they all knew that was just the down payment.

Then for the next ten years the Fed held a fire sale on easy money. The players kept grinding while the rest of the economy limped along at about 1% growth.

It’s worth noting two important things here: 1. To this day the Fed still loans TRILLIONS all over the world like it was day one of the 2008 crash. A tiny fraction will ever be paid back. 2. CDOs are still a multi-trillion dollar game. But now it’s more like a money laundering scam than a mortgage scam. Hell, the government buys all the worthless mortgages now along with the good ones. And get this!  They do it with money from the Fed! You can’t make this stuff up!

It’s time to audit the Fed or end the Fed. Or both. Every time someone calls for that (Senator Rand Paul is one) the propaganda machine goes into high gear saying that we could mess up the economy if we do that. And how dare anyone suggest that the Fed would do anything to harm Americans?! Why, they are a sort of…half government…helping…patriotic…critical…ya know, the thing!

May I remind you the Federal Reserve is a band of large banks, still players all, in the casino. And THEIR interests are their only interests. Where their interests meet ours, fine. Where they collide it’s, “fuck you, we have politicians to control and empires to expand.”

It is further worth noting that your economy is collapsing around your heads. This is because, and this is just one example of MANY, the government and the Fed are printing money at an alarming rate to finance crony “green” projects. The projects will NEVER work as advertised. So, why do that, right?

Well, the big players, including Fed members have positioned themselves to get this money handed to them. Blackrock and Vanguard will get a lot of that money too. With some of it they will build windmills, hundreds of millions of acres of them. They’ll keep the rest of the money. The windward turbines, on any given farm, when the wind is actually blowing, will work. The leeward on those huge farms, from the second row back, meh, not so much. The ones at the back, ziltch.

What? Did you think the big banks and investment firms were doing this because they care about “green” energy and our precious environment? Hah! You kill me. They don’t even care if these things work. Think Solyndra, but on a multi-trillion dollar scale. All financed by the same guys (Fed members) who will be making all the money!

But they won’t lose anything on the other end when the whole thing fails. No, no! They will set up shell corporations or find a few suckers to build these tinker toys. They will “LOAN” some of the trillions, they gave to themselves, to these companies. When the wind farms, by that time covering an area wider than 5 large Midwestern states, fail…well the shell company declares bankruptcy. Now no one owns the rusting worthless hulks. They sit and rot. Problem solved…for the Fed members and other environmentally patriotic players at the casino.

As I said, the “green” thing was just an example.  There are thousands of schemes in constant motion maintained by your tax dollars that don’t make the taxpayer a single dime. In fact, we invariably lose. They are all orchestrated by the Fed, cronies and their political whores.

It’s time to put a leash in the Fed. 65.

People to be screaming at: Find your Republican SERVANTS on this link.  CALL them and tell them to get hot on this NOW!  Hell, call the Dems too.  You might find one or two who won’t get loose stools over it.

Uh-Oh! Polio! Where did that come from?

Welcome Back Polio!

Did you know Polio has been detected in New York? Polio, f**king POLIO! But, we eradicated that generations ago, right? So where might it be coming from? Hmmmm. Wait a moment! Could it be coming in with the millions of illegal aliens invading our country, encouraged by the Democrat Party? Is that even knowable? These people are herded across the border, handed directly from the Cartels to our Border Patrol, and dispersed with absolutely NO controls whatsoever? Could that possibly the case?

Should we even have to ask such questions? In a civilized nation of laws, the question wouldn’t even come up. Our laws require a person to go through the proper channels to come here. And there are other steps that must be taken to stay here. But who worries about pesky laws?

Look at the poor, starving children…no wait…

Certainly not the modern Democrat Party. They and their allies, the drug cartels in Mexico, have money to make and power to cling to. So to hell with your damn laws, we’ll just do what we please and say it is because the existing laws need to be reformed.

Did you get that? We POLITICIANS will actively encourage the breaking of laws, saying that the laws need to be reformed. The very people, who are charged with making laws, don’t lift a finger to create the very reforms THEY claim are needed. They just DISOBEY existing law and encourage others to do the same.

That should be how the GOP is couching its message about the border crisis. And as I have said in earlier installments, start talking about action steps you will take NOW. Dump the poll-tested phrases. They are designed to keep you out of the limelight. Speak plainly and boldly and dive head first INTO the limelight!

Solutions:

Close the border! It’s almost embarrassing to have to list that as a step. But the playtime is over!

Finish the wall.

Start enforcing deportation laws. Tell illegals in no uncertain terms to get their affairs in order. If an illegal is caught in a traffic stop, he gets on a plane to his country of origin. If he has kids and wants to take them along, fine. If he wants to leave them, he needs to have a plan in place NOW. He or she is leaving regardless.

It’s time we recognize parental responsibility in this situation. The Left will say these poor people are too stupid to be held responsible for the welfare of their children. If they brought their kids here, we are responsible for the kids. NO, we’re not. The parents are.

But won’t the kids just end up as wards of the state, if left behind? Maybe. But if you’re an illegal, working under the table, you’re collecting welfare too. That scam is as common as air. So many are already wards of the state, financially.

Many will say that these people coming across are poor, starving families fleeing corruption. Have you SEEN the videos of these people? 70% male, almost all adults. And few, if any look the least bit hungry. Many are fatter than me. And I’m fat.

The respective Central American governments don’t care about these illegals one way or another. The illegals weren’t in Guatemala or anywhere else in the world, fighting the good fight, and then fleeing for their lives. They’re looking for a pay raise.

Wait! There’s More!

End the illegal sanctuary concept. This is not Medieval Europe and San Francisco is certainly not a church. If a city interferes with the enforcement of immigration laws, arrest the officials thwarting ICE and charge him appropriately. This includes the mayor. Hey, if you can do it to a former president on procedural grounds, you can certainly arrest a mayor for supporting drug cartels in Mexico.

If you leave sanctuary cities in place then you MUST allow Texas and Arizona enact any form of anti-immigrant policies they wish and let them carry them out.

Enforce laws regarding the hiring of illegals. Better yet, make them tougher. Outlaw renting to illegals. Make it uncomfortable for them to be here. These people are not as pathetic and stupid as the Left wants you to believe. If they sense a hassle, they won’t come. Make being an illegal a major hassle. Take away the goodies. And certainly start by dis-enrolling illegals from Social Security. You will then see, on a scale even Mitt Romney couldn’t have envisioned, self-deportation. Again, these people are not stupid. If life here sucks they’ll go back. Make life suck for illegals.

In coming episodes of this series you’re going to see that we will have a number of IRS and FBI agents looking for work. Hire them to investigate, infiltrate and break up the gangs that profit from human trafficking. Make life for these, and any gangs for that matter, horrible. You’ll have the manpower. We’re going to free them up with other solutions to our nation’s ills.  There are lot’s of details about this in my book also.

Anticipate the straw argument

The talking heads on TV will say that you are going to lose the support of Hispanic voters. Yeah, the Donald put the lie to that already. While he was pushing to shut the border, his Hispanic numbers were climbing. That’s because Hispanic voters (that would be citizens of Hispanic extraction) don’t like the racist insinuation that their fortunes are tied to those of most illegals because they share similar surnames. They aren’t. I would argue that an American with a Spanish accent has needless difficulties BECAUSE of rampant illegal immigration. I mean, who’s who and how do you know?

There’s also the fact that those coming across are now from every race and ethnicity on the planet. That’s because right now they know that our government is stupid and unbelievably lazy. They know our southern border is the least secure border in existence.

They’re gonna take my libertarian card for this post. But hey, I am a libertarian, not a 12 year old Antifa poof. I think there are lots of laws that need to change. We could burn three quarters of the federal code and lives would improve. It’s why I’m here. But in a civilized society, you start by enforcing existing law. Otherwise there is no respect for ANY laws, like those for example, that protect individual rights.

And it’s time to say it again. Make all laws you push through simple, brief and clean. No earmarks and other bullshit. If we succeed in our primary mission there will be little or no need for backroom deals or arm-twisting.

Cheers. Carry on.

The End of the Trump Presidency

As of Thursday, 8 June 2017, the Trump Presidency has reached a point where it has no allies. Well before this, Ryan and McConnell had alternately duped Trump into backing stupid ideas (Ryancare) by stroking his ego, or turned their backs on his agenda (taxes and infrastructure). Now they have the cover they need to simply walk away.  And they will.  These are no men of honor.

They’ll still pay lip service to doing the right thing, but they have no intention, and now no motivation, to actually lift a finger to fix anything. Within weeks, Washington DC will be every man for himself.

 This is not a pity party. Much of what we are seeing is Trump’s own doing. Through his open display of ineptitude, undercutting his own people and his mindless tweeting, Trump has made himself easy prey. If he had the least inkling to listen and learn over the last two and a half years, he would not be where he is today.

He won’t be impeached. There is nothing apparent right now which would be impeachable. In fact, he is more useful to his enemies, and those who have abandoned him, in office than he would be if he resigned.

But between James Comey and the news networks’ drama with their dipshit, countdown clocks, there will be almost no place left for the Administration to work its will.

There will be no wall, but we already knew that.

There will be no tax cuts. If there are they will be offset by Ryan’s incredibly stupid import tax.

There will be no real improvements to infrastructure.

There will be little done in the way of improving our position internationally.

Obamacare will remain intact or 80% intact. Again, thank you Speaker Ryan!

The budget will not be cut by one, thin dime.

The deficit and debt will explode as both parties in congress will embark on a vote-buying frenzy the likes of which we have never seen before. Even Obama’s monumental irresponsibility will pale.

History and Context

Source: The Daily Coin, thedailycoin.org. They have an interesting article here. http://thedailycoin.org/2017/05/14/james-comeys-brother-works-law-firm-audited-clinton-foundations-taxes/

Among the most egregious crimes Hillary Clinton committed by keeping her illegal and unsecured server during her time as SecState, was her concealment and destruction of historical records. While not as many people will die from this as those who might due to her sharing of intelligence documents, there are now historical gaps in the record.

She did slick her server, of course. She knew the device was illegal and that she held the information on it illegally. So by trying to cover her misdeeds, she not only made it easier to prosecute her, but when it is important to know what was said when, and by whom, we won’t have the information. And thanks to Comey, the damage will be forever buried.

But these historical documents are as much the concern of the Federal Code and the Federal Records Act as any of the classified documents she stole and destroyed. None of these documents belonged to her. They were entirely the property of the U.S. Government.

There are a few decent, thinking human beings left in this world who understand the importance of keeping a clear history of events for our benefit and the benefit of future generations. Clinton is not in their number. It is by DNA alone that Clinton qualifies as a human being.

Comey seems to have learned a lot from the sham investigation into HRC’s illegal servers. And it has served him well in the estimation of dull-witted people.

For starters, many actions taken by Comey mirror Clinton’s in both intent and motivation. And his explanations even surpass HRC in terms of vanity and self-righteousness. He is nowhere near as slick as Clinton. But he’s trying anyway.

Working backward from this week:

In his congressional testimony, Comey stated affirmatively that he kept memos of his meetings with President Trump because he feared Trump might lie about their conversations. With only one exception, the pleas for loyalty (not a target of these hearings), their stories jive almost perfectly. Not a whole lot of lying going on if you believe either of them.

But beyond that, our previous president had been caught repeatedly throughout his tenure lying outright about all kinds of things. Among the worst could arguably be, “everyone will save $2500 on the health insurance”, “If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor,” and the biggee: denying the administration’s knowledge or involvement in Operation Fast and Furious. (This debacle resulted in the death of a U.S. Border Patrol Agent. It also got a bunch of those little Mexican people killed as well. Offense was compounded by the harassment and denigration of Brian Terry’s family for pursuing the truth about his death.)

And those are just three of the countless whoppers told by BHO and the spineless people who served under him, including James Comey.

But Comey took no notes of his conversations with BHO. He also kept no record of his interrogation of Hillary Clinton for her crimes. She wasn’t even put under oath. And Clinton can’t go from here to there without lying, stealing or extorting. You can call Trump a lot of things. I make a habit of beating him up often. The one reputation he hasn’t earned is that of a liar. That doesn’t mean he is or isn’t a liar. But he hasn’t had the time to establish himself as one, at least not in his capacity as President.

But poor Jim was worried, so he kept notes.

The Self-Appointed AG

Comey’s story about his dealings with Trump, in sworn statements has gone from never having been pressured to stop any investigation in the spring – to – I felt quite sure he was ordering me to stop the investigation as of early summer. When was he lying? Both statements cannot be true.

source: https://www.flickr.com/photos/donkeyhotey/22492551342

 So many fascinating things pour off the transcripts here.

First when asked why he didn’t take his impressions and his memos to the DOJ, Comey gave two reasons. First he didn’t want investigators to get the impression the President of the United States wanted the investigation to move in a specific way.

Well! I’d like to thank my personal god that James Comey is the man he is. Imagine the burden he suffered. He was the only FBI guy who could have such knowledge and still remain honest and forthright. Oh heavens! What if all those average, mortal agents heard the president wanted to see Flynn left alone! They don’t possess Comey’s super human fortitude! They would be crippled by the knowledge and would stop investigating.

Oh! Oops! That’s right, they did hear it. Months ago. Comey had already leaked that conversation too. And by some miracle, the investigation continues unabated.

So instead of reporting what he thought was interfering with an investigation, which he saw as his duty (his own words) he decided to keep things to himself. After all, we only had an acting AG at the time. The acting AG was still Comey’s superior and was the correct authority to report to. But Comey appointed himself Deputy Extra Double Secret Attorney General and reported the potential offense to himself and his immediate staff.

So worried was poor Jim about doing the right thing, when he was fired from the FBI he took government documents with him and had a friend leak them to the media.

(Oh yeah, I almost forgot about this self-appointment. Comey appointed himself HMFIC of Ignoring the Federal Records Act. There was a vacancy now that Clinton was gone. He decided the memos he’d written in his capacity as FBI director about official meetings with a sitting president, were his personal property. Those memos were suddenly the equivalent of Comey, sitting in his pajamas, scribbling in his diary about hanging out with his old pal Don at a barbecue. “Dear dairy: spent the day by the pool with Donny. He’s DREAMY! I think he likes me. Tee-hee.”

But in reality he was writing about official business, which, according to Comey, showed possible corruption on the part of the president. In order to use these memos as a weapon of personal vengeance he had to break more rules. So, abracadabra, presto! The memos are now personal notes, his to do with as he wished.)

Continued Below Ad



But Wait! There’s More!

Comey’s testimony was a circus of self-impeachment and mind-blowing hypocrisy.

  1. Comey volunteered that Loretta Lynch requested he lie to the press and to congress, calling the investigation of Clinton’s illegal servers as “a matter” and not “an investigation”. Comey said he was confused and shocked by the order. This is a lie or gives lie to Comey’s “reason” for taking notes about Trump. Because when shocked or confused by a government official, we already know Comey takes note and leaks them. He did neither in the case of the corrupt lackey, Loretta Lynch.

And he was in no way confused by Lynch’s clear abetting in the Clinton cover-up. Unless he forgot all his years as a prosecutor and his years and head of the nation’s premiere investigative service.

     2. “I am not a legal scholar,” says Comey. WTF!?!? A law degree? Years as an attorney? Years as a federal prosecutor? One of the brave legal minds that held the line against making policy decisions behind AG Ashcroft’s back? Years as head of the FBI? And not a legal scholar? The convenient, disingenuous humility is…

…Excuse me. I just threw up in my mouth a little bit.

  1. “I leaked information [to get a] special prosecutor appointed.” As a statement without context, that could be true, and rather prescient. But in the context of Comey’s fairy tales on Thursday, a reasonable person must stand incredulous.   As we have established here, the memos the committee were fixated on were not the only information Comey leaked. The memos about “loyalty” and discussions about Trump firing him because of the Russian investigation were leaked as reprisal for being fired. That leaves any claims of honorable motivation in doubt.

The ONLY EVIDENCE we have as to his being fired (Trump’s impetuous tweets not withstanding) is Rosenstein’s memo, which speaks simply and legitimately to Comey’s deplorable handling of the Clinton investigation. I will go a step further and call it Comey’s participation in the Clinton cover-up. There too, he appointed himself Attorney General because he knew no matter what he said about his investigation, the utterly corrupt AG was not going to prefer charges. So, he gave himself a field promotion (from Senior Investigator to Extra Double Secret AG) and declared the case was beneath prosecution, nailing his name in the pages of history as the man who saved the unworthy HRC.

This was the clearest demonstration of Comey’s desire to thwart Trump. Save Hillary, he thought, and Trump is done. Being a creature of the Beltway, he was incapable of seeing that the citizens saw HRC as even more nauseating than Trump.

It’s Academic Now

And so, we are seeing the end of the Trump presidency as an effective entity. Not because Comey was right in any of the things he’s done. Since his July 15 press conference he has rarely put a foot right. He has been motivated by two ambitions: The aggrandizement of James Brien Comey, Jr. and the diminishment of Donald J. Trump, Jr.

And the media has only helped Comey. There was no way the MSM was ever going to warm up to Trump. But the “great deal maker” handled them as poorly as he has almost everything else.  Instead of simply touting good press and ignoring, or even spinning negative reports, Trump showed he is probably the worst deal maker ever. He lacked understanding of the press and refused to approach his PR problems as tactical ones.  He treated every negative news story as a personal vendetta against him. As a result, he made enemies, even in camps with conservative editorial lines.

So Is All Lost?

There is a silver lining here. We can anticipate the actions of our bloated, corrupt federal government. We may now, as a people, have the motivation to do something about it. I have talked about this in the past and will do so in my next piece. We’ll see who is paying attention.

Here’s a good primer.
