A Plea for Freedom

(Infowars) – We are broke.

On June 5th, 1933, Franklin Delano Roosevelt signed into law the Emergency Banking Act which declared America bankrupt and insolvent.  Twenty years after the 1913 Federal Reserve Act authorized a private central bank to loan money to the government at interest, the country declared its bankruptcy.  Twenty years after the Federal Reserve Act was passed, Congress enacted House Joint Resolution 192, to “Suspend the Gold Standard and Abrogate the Gold Clause” and the nation became insolvent.  Just twenty years after the Federal Reserve Act became law, gold at twenty dollars an ounce was inflated by FDR to twenty-nine dollars an ounce, confiscated with the passing of the Gold Reserve Act in 1934, and then inflated again to thirty-five dollars an ounce.

Doug Casey Says Bet Against Wall Street, Bonds, and after a few months the U.S. Dollar

(MakretOracle) – L: Doug, I saw a Wall Street Journal headline a few days ago that boldly proclaimed, “Car Makers May Hire Soon.” Be still, my trembling heart! It’s hard to believe the WSJ would stoop to such a meaningless headline, but I guess they are just trying to give their desperate customers what they want: some hope, whether valid or not. What do you make of the unemployment situation? Continue reading

How the US Government Created the ‘Drug Problem’ in the USA

“The bottom line on this whole business has not yet been written.”
Eighteenth-century German philosopher Georg Friedrich Hegel long ago developed, among other things, what he called the principle of “thesis, antithesis, synthesis” to explain the process of deliberately enacted social disorder and change as a road to power. To achieve a desired result, one deliberately creates a situation (“thesis,”) devises a “solution,” to solve the “problems” created by that situation (“antithesis,”) with the final result being the ultimate goal of more power and control (“synthesis.”) It is unsurprising Karl Marx and his disciples like Lenin and Trotsky, as well as the US government in its so-called War On Drugs, made this process a keystone of their drive for total control of all individual actions that, in their views, were not, in Mussolini s terms, “inside the state” and thus controllable by the same.

Recession Is Over; Depression Has Just Begun

For the last few months I have been casting around looking for bullish data points as counterfactuals to my more bearish long-term outlook. I have found some, but not enough. If you recall, early this year, I stated that we are in depression, making the case for the ongoing downturn as a depression with a small ‘d.’

The Spend-And-Borrow Economy – Nouriel Roubini

In the last few months the world economy has been saved from a near-depression. That feat has been achieved by a range of extraordinary government stimulus measures: In the U.S. and in China, and to a lesser extent in Europe, Japan and other countries, governments have pumped liquidity, slashed policy rates, cut taxes, primed demand and ring-fenced and back-stopped the financial system. All of this has worked, but at a cost. Governments have been spending and borrowing like never before. The question now is: how do they stop? Continue reading

MSM: Common Sense 2009

(HuffPost) – The American government – which we once called our government – has been taken over by Wall Street, the mega-corporations and the super-rich. They are the ones who decide our fate. It is this group of powerful elites, the people President Franklin D. Roosevelt called “economic royalists,” who choose our elected officials – indeed, our very form of government. Continue reading

The Second Wave of The Depression: Hyperinflation is Likely – Webster Tarpley

The second wave of the world economic depression is coming soon. Larry Summers, the economics czar of the Wall Street puppet regime currently in power in Washington, recently confessed to the Financial Times in an unguarded moment: “I don’t think the worst is over ..” A few weeks earlier, Jacques Attali, who served in the 1980s as the main economics adviser to French President Mitterrand, told an audience at the International Economic and Financial Forum (FIEF) in Paris that the world might well soon face a planetary Weimar “in the form of a hyperinflationary depression similar to the German events of 1922 – 1923.

Video: Michele Backmann on the 2010 Census/Internment Camps

Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann has been a tad concerned about responding to the 2010 Census. “If we look at American history, between 1942 and 1947, the data that was collected by the Census Bureau was handed over to the FBI and other organizations at the request of President Roosevelt, and that’s how the Japanese were rounded up and put into the internment camps,” she told Fox News last month.

Governor Schwarzenegger finish what your wife started and Get Urban Farming Started in California – Robert Singer

President-elect Barack Obama calls the current crisis as “the greatest economic challenge of our lifetime” the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression.
