Republican Party Rep Warns of Doomsday, Urges Ammo Stockpile

8/2/2013 10:36 AM

 

Republican Party Representative Matt Shea told a rally of patriots that they should stockpile weapons and ammunition in order to prepare for the “inevitable” occurrence of complete economic collapse in the United States.

Republican Party Representative Matt Shea told a rally of patriots that they should stockpile weapons and ammunition in order to prepare for the “inevitable” occurrence of complete economic collapse in the United States. “We need to prepare for the inevitable collapse that is going to happen,” Shea said. “You know it’s going to happen. That’s right, I am a politician and I am standing up here and saying that. … When it happens, we need to look at this as an opportunity, not a crisis. Whose job is liberty? That’s our job.”

 

At “The Northwest Patriot and Self-Reliance Rally” over the weekend, he began his speech with a nod to his beliefs. “It’s great to be in God’s country,” he said. “Our hope is not in man; our hope is in Jesus Christ. Amen?” The crowd answered “Amen!” just before Shea told them they should purchase thousands of rounds of ammunition and learn how to operate firearms.

 

He urged the rally participants to be ready for an altercation with the government, saying, “[B]e prepared at any given moment to give up your job to do what is right. You have to stand up for what is right – even if it means you have to stand up to your government.”

 

Shea had earlier stated that the United States government is planning to disarm all Americans and is actively building an extended network of camps. Shea was READ THE REST

Obama criticizes Kim Kardashian and Kanye West: President says ‘Keeping Up’ helps to create generation obsessed with wealth and celebrity.

 

http://social.entertainment.msn.com/tv/blogs/reality-tv-blogpost.aspx?post=f7eca2e9-ccc0-4263-8d1d-7158a41c45ac

 

 

President Barack Obama criticized Kim Kardashian and her family, saying their reality TV shows have helped create a generation of youngsters who are obsessed with wealth and celebrity. Obama singled out socialite Kim Kardashian and her rapper boyfriend Kanye West for particular criticism in a Kindle Singles interview during a visit to one of Amazon’s warehouses in Tennessee. Obama bemoaned the rise of reality TV shows and insisted celebrities who parade their wealth in front of fans have inadvertently changed the aspirations of young people. 

 

He said, “The American dream involved some pretty basic stuff — a good job where you felt some security, a good education … People felt if they worked hard they could get there … I don’t think people went around saying to themselves, ‘I need to have a 10,000-square-foot house’ … I think there has also been a shift in culture. We weren’t exposed to the things we didn’t have in the same way that kids these days are. There was not that window into the lifestyles of the rich and famous. Kids weren’t monitoring every day what Kim Kardashian was wearing or where Kanye West was going on vacation and thinking that somehow that was the mark of success.”  (READ ENTIRETY – if you choose to)

 

The question now becomes what is Obama trying to prepare us for by striking at the heart of Americanism????

 

[Editor: I believe Newbill’s above question is an excellent one. Obama castigates the likes of the Kim Kardashian and Kanye West over extravagant living with money they earned. That is indeed un-American. HOWEVER, the likes of Kardashian and West should not be looked upon as role models but not for the reason Obama implies. These people are not exactly model citizens in their lifestyles. President Obama that is something to criticize them about. A clean lifestyle is a good role model.]

The Benghazi Scandal has not made a Lot of Sense Until Now

The Benghazi scandal has not made a lot of sense until now.  Why would the Obama Regime spend so much time trying to cover it up?  There is one new shocking development that, if true, not only explains everything but if true, it means high ranking members of the Regime should be sent to prison.

It is time to connect to the people responsible to see if something illegal according to U.S. law and the U.S. Constitution. If the law was broken then a trial is long overdue.

The reason the title is such because Obama himself wore a mask of his own caricature and his audience laughed. A Clown was an Obama mask and he’s banned from Rodeo Clowning for life.

Rodeo Clown Wearing BHO Mask

A rodeo clown who donned a President Obama mask at the Missouri State Fair was ridiculed, called a racist and banned for life – but when a similar mask was worn by Obama himself, the audience greeted him with enthusiastic cheers.

 

After the rodeo clown wore the mask Aug. 10 and teased the crowd about a bull coming to get Obama, fair officials called his stunt “unconscionable” and vowed he would never perform again.

 

The Missouri chapter of the NAACP demanded that the U.S. Department of Justice and Secret Service launch an investigation of the clown.

 

The president of Missouri’s rodeo-clown organization resigned after the incident, and fair officials declared that all clowns would be required to attend sensitivity training.

 

The clown was accused by a spectator of turning the event into “some kind of [Klu Klux] Klan rally.”

 

Missouri’s elected officials condemned the clown’s act as (READ THE RESTNo way! Look who’s wearing Obama mask now; By Chelsea Schilling; WND; 08/15/2013 at 9:14 PM)

Why our cities are writhing in death-grip of crime, bankruptcy

http://www.wnd.com/2013/08/why-our-cities-are-self-destructing/

 

“And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.

 

“And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded.

 

“And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.

 

“Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.

 

“So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city.

 

“Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.” (Genesis 11:4-9 KJV)

 

There is something a little strange about big cities.

 

The enigmatic biblical story of the tower of Babel revolves around this strange something that occurs when large numbers of people come together in one place and form a great hive.

 

It’s not that something bad has to happen – it doesn’t, especially if the people governing that city are highly principled and grounded in reality. But how often does that happen?

 

What, then, is this strange “something”? It’s what happens when deceitful and power-hungry people rise to positions of power to rule over their own little “kingdom.” On a more cosmic level, one might say it’s the futility and ultimate disintegration of anything – even a great city – built as a monument to man’s greatness rather than God’s.

The central bankers/US government have taken control over Egypt. They control the military by giving them aid, they control Saudi Arabia that supports the Egyptian armed forces. This was a take over (sic) to declare martial law and a dictatorship in Egypt to protect the US dollar as the reserve currency. The economic collapse is approaching quickly this fall.

Is Slowing Money Supply Signalling (sic) Another Stock Market Crash?

 

According to Austrian Business Cycle Theory, when a central bank slows its money printing that has fueled a manipulated stock market boom, the stock market is very vulnerable to a crash. Murray Rothbard in his book America’s Great Depression explained how it occurred before the October 1929 crash:

 

It is generally acknowledged that the great boom of the 1920s began around July, 1921, after a year or more of sharp recession, and ended about July, 1929.

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

 

The End Times began at 12:20 p.m. Eastern today.

 

The Tocqueville Gold Fund’s John Hathaway, a thoroughly respectable member of the financial establishment who only in recent weeks has begun to acknowledge the manipulation of the gold market by Western central banks, went on CNBC’s “Fast Money” program, declared that a short squeeze is under way in gold because the paper gold market is leveraged at 100 to 1, and was not cut off.

 

Of course the CNBC “analysts” who commented following Hathaway’s remarks completely missed the substance of what he said. Real financial journalism has not descended upon the West quite yet. But if reality about gold can come frankly out of Hathaway’s mouth and be spread throughout the world by CNBC, are even Reuters, Bloomberg News, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, and the Financial Times still safe for the Federal Reserve and Wall Street and their scheme of gold price suppression and currency market rigging?

X22 Warning Report! Economic Collapse Countdown Has Begun

http://tinyurl.com/m3ps3bc

 

As awakened Americans await the economic collapse that we all know now we’ll be unable to avoid, the question has to be asked, has it already begun? This X22 Report examines this prospect closely and the facts before our eyes might lead all of us to believe that indeed, the economic collapse is already here, the countdown has begun. Back in 2008, Congressman Brad Sherman warned that if a bailout package was not passed, martial law would be declared in America. That video is the 2nd video below. Is this what all of the military preparation around the country is all about? It appears that we are now running out of time.

 

From X22: The central bankers/US government have taken control over Egypt. They control the military by giving them aid, they control Saudi Arabia that supports the Egyptian armed forces. This was a take over (sic) to declare martial law and a dictatorship in Egypt to protect the US dollar as the reserve currency. The economic collapse is approaching quickly this fall.

Is the Obama Doctrine the Rise of Netocracy??

8/19/2013 9:55 AM

 

Going around Congress with spending like Solyndra and many many other fascist operations that donated back lots of the funding to campaigns   and buying favors like waving taxes for Special Interests like for Obamacare is also why we see this Nation dissolving into a  Netocracy …. netocracy refers to a perceived global upper-class that bases its power on a technological advantage and networking skills, in comparison to what is portrayed as a bourgeoisie of a gradually diminishing importance.

 

See when we really look at what Obama and his Oligarchy Administration are entrenched in this Technology Rooted Global Upper Class telling the Bourgeoise (sic) Middle Class he’s looking out for them he actually has them in a Holding pattern while the Netocracy is growing stronger under his regime with the end runs around Congress and the Trillions that he and the Federal Reserve have been spilling out into the Netocracy Sphere of the rise of this super power Globalist Class that has consolidated all the wealth and resources.

 

It’s perfect for controlling the rate of social consumption of the majority of people on earth, the main goal of these Globalists who are also the Netocracy Environmentalist crowd.

  

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Netocracy

 

Netocracy was a term invented by the editorial board of the American technology magazine Wired in the early 1990s. A portmanteau of Internet and aristocracy, netocracy refers to a perceived global upper-class that bases its power on a technological advantage and networking skills, in comparison to what is portrayed as a bourgeoisie of a gradually diminishing importance.

 

The concept was later picked up by the Swedish philosophers Alexander Bard and Jan Söderqvist for their book Netocracy — The New Power Elite and Life After Capitalism (originally published in Swedish in 2000 as Nätokraterna – boken om det elektroniska klassamhället, published in English by Reuters/Pearsall UK in 2002).

 

The netocracy concept has been compared with Richard Florida‘s concept of the creative class. Bard and Söderqvist have also defined an under-class in opposition to the netocracy, which they refer to as the consumtariat.

[Editor: This “Netocracy” is a new term to me. Since the concept is based on a book published in 2000 that makes me an Internet dinosaur. You can tell by the wording in Wikipedia the netocracy concept is a Marxist updated utopianism rolled over into the information age. Clearly netocracy is anti-Democracy (in the representative sense – perhaps Representative Republic best describes the USA) and anti-Capitalism (anti-Free Market, anti-laissez-faire {which is extreme Capitalism}, anti-Free Enterprise etc.). Netocracy in essence replaces a democratic-republican power structure with whatever Network Collective controls or has the best information with the goal of enhancing that particular Network Collective.

 

People like me that believe in individual rights and Liberty would be relegated to second class citizens stripped of the viability of property and entrepreneurial social-interpersonal relationships that involved human contact. The challenge for the Liberty-minded if the Information age via the Internet redefines social interaction is a way to maintain the protection of Property Rights, Individual Rights, Family Values (in my case Christian Values) and the right to be interpersonal rather than virtual.

 

Netocracy as envisioned by it developers socially and politically will develop into a hierarchal dictatorship in which the people at the top of the virtual pyramid will maintain an elitism within a Network not allowing achievement to allow for upward mobility.

 

Frankly lovers of the U.S. Constitution should not rail against the future of a pervasive Information but rather embrace the Network concept but apply the Network to a people that have an association based on laws rather than the monopoly of information that controls the ruling apparatus. A Republic of laws will always trump the fiat of an elitist collective. HERE is a great link explaining the socio-political nature of netocracy. The explanation is netocracy friendly.]

American Dream Dying Under Obama

Sent: 8/19/2013 4:43 PM

 

Dear Barack Obama is the American dream dying under your Policies?

 

http://www.wnd.com/2013/08/american-dream-dying-under-obama/

 

NEW YORK – Are you better off today economically than you were when President Obama took office in January 2009?

 

That question remains the litmus test for electoral politics as the U.S. prepares to move into the 2014 mid-term election cycle.

 

The economic scorecard for President Obama continues to provide reasons for alarm, despite Obama’s renewed attempt to emphasize yet again the plight of the U.S. economy and decline of the middle class.

 

Amid the most massive welfare state ever created in human history, four of five U.S. adults struggle with joblessness, near poverty, or reliance for at least part of their lives, according to a recent Associated Press report.

 

 

Even Obama-supporting Nobel Prize-winning economist and New York Times columnist Paul Krugman has acknowledged that terms such as “modest recovery,” “slow recovery” or even “recession” do not describe the economic malaise experienced under Obama’s presidency.

 

Arguing that the U.S. is in a “low-grade” depression, the liberal economist wrote July 5 that the U.S. economy may have entered “permanent stagnation,” a situation in which “high unemployment could become accepted as the new normal.”

 

Economist Peter Schiff, CEO of Euro Pacific Capital and author of the 2012 bestseller “The Real Crash: America’s Coming Bankruptcy – How to Save Yourself and Your Country” is even less sanguine.

 

Schiff believes it makes no difference whether Obama replaces Ben Bernanke as chairman of the Federal Reserve with Fed vice chair Janet Yellen, who favors continuing the Fed’s quantitative easing policy, or with former Obama economic adviser Larry Summers, who wants to end it.

 

“I think the U.S. economy is in trouble regardless of who President Obama chooses, because it’s going to be more of the same policies that have brought the country to the brink of economic ruin,” Schiff said this week.

 

WND’s independent investigation of 10 key economic measures confirms that economic conditions for millions of Americans have deteriorated substantially under the Obama administration.

Consider Private Sector Economy Transforming to a Govt. Phony Fiat Capitalist Economy

8/1/2013 12:02 PM

 

Let’s consider what is driving the fundamental transformation from a private sector driven Economy to one that’s initially funded by Governments around the world with Phony Fiat Capital….. I would like to draw your attention to what is said at this link:

 

http://green-agenda.com/greatshift.html

 

The Green Agenda

 

We require a central organizing principle – one agreed to voluntarily.
Minor shifts in policy, moderate improvement in laws and regulations,
rhetoric offered in lieu of genuine change – these are all forms of
appeasement, designed to satisfy the public’s desire to believe that
sacrifice, struggle and a wrenching transformation
of society will not be necessary
.”


Al Gore,


Earth in the Balance

 

The Great Shift

Environmental activists often claim that modern human civilisation is ‘destroying the earth’ and our harmful activities are overwhelming Gaia’s ability to regenerate ‘herself.’ As discussed in my article about the Club of Rome (CoR) the concepts of sustainability and ‘ecological overshoot’ were brought to widespread public attention by the CoR in their 1972 report Limits to Growth. According to their predictions by now we should have run out of many vital resources, including zinc, aluminium and uranium, and be experiencing extreme food and oil shortages.

Despite the obvious failure of their dire warnings to eventuate the CoR, and a plethora of other environmental organisations, have continued to proclaim that the planet is rapidly approaching critical tipping points that will plunge the earth into an ecological collapse and result in the dieoff of thousands of species (including us). Of course the most successful tool they have found to promote this concept is Global Warming. Most other environmental problems are of a local or regional nature, are clearly visible, and can be addressed with appropriate regulations. Global Warming, however, is caused by an invisible trace gas, an essential nutrient for life, and a by-product of almost every human activity (even breathing) but, they claim, it will doom us all!

For more than thirty years the CoR has proclaimed that our modern society is unsustainable and must be replaced by an “interdependent sustainable global society, based on respect and reverence for the Earth.” This theme has become rooted deeply within the environmental movement. There is now a constant and increasingly loud drumbeat for CHANGE. This has coincided with a dramatic escalation in the rhetoric of those eager to pronounce our doom. According to a recent report the use of the word ‘crisis’ in the mainstream media has been increasing by more than 10% per year since 1995.

This psychological warfare has been very successful. Many people now feel afraid and uncertain. They tell us that soon there will be no more oil, the economy is about to collapse and our children are going to burn. No wonder people are beginning to embrace the ‘green solutions’ that they promise will lead us away from the abyss. Of course this has been the plan all along. The CoR state clearly in their own words:

 

Man possesses, for a small moment in his
history, the most powerful combination of knowledge,
tools, and resources the world has ever known. He has
all that is physically necessary to
create a totally new form
of human society
– one that would be built to last for
generations. The two missing ingredients are a realistic,
long-term goal that can
guide mankind to the equilibrium
society
and the Human Will to achieve that goal
.”
– Club of Rome,
Limits to Growth (1972)

The common enemy of humanity is man.
In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up
with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming,
water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill. All these
dangers are caused by human intervention, and it is only through
changed attitudes and behavior that they can be overcome.
The real enemy then, is humanity itself.”


– Club of Rome,
The First Global Revolution (1992)

 

Fortunately, those pushing the Green Agenda have already developed a range of alternative world systems which, they say, will solve the problems that humanity has caused. These proposals go by various names: The Great Shift, The Great Transition, A New Green Deal, The Planetary Phase, The Power Down, The Great Descent etc. However, they all seem to several elements in common: a global management system for world resources, a global currency, replacing nation states with regional unions, population control/reduction, and READ THE REST

 

 

And then please take a Look at this, because we the people are being played for FOOLS!!!!!!!

 

[Editor: the below writing only makes sense in Newbill parlance if it is a demonstration of the propaganda idiocy by Left Wing NWO. Otherwise it is a bit confusing.]

 

A quote from a Paragraph in this Link speaks volumes and Strikes directly at the heart of a Capitalist economic system and explains why we see an unsustainable debt slowing [and] collapsing the current economic system worldwide. Gandhi said, “[B]e the change you want to see in the world”. In today’s world this means change your consciousness so others would change theirs. How can you do that? First of all, get rid of the old consciousness, and the values and beliefs that support it.

 

Ask yourself: do you believe that —

 

o   Everyone is separate and rightfully pursues just his or her own interest.

 

o   Life is a struggle for existence; only the fittest (meaning the wealthiest or most powerful) survives.

 

o   In the ruthless competition for fitness the ends justify the means.

 

o   The more money you have, the better you are (and very likely also the happier).

 

o   People owe allegiance only to one nation and one company—the rest are strangers and competitors.

 

o   If we want peace, we must prepare for war.

 

o   Technology and efficiency are the answer, no matter what the question.

 

o   For all intents and purposes the Earth is an inexhaustible source of resources and an infinite sink of wastes.

 

o   The environment can be engineered like a settlement or a highway to fit our needs and demands.

 

If you hold such beliefs, you are part of the problem. But how can you become part of the solution? Here you must take a further step: adopt new thinking. As Einstein said, you can’t solve a problem with the same kind of thinking that produced the problem.

The Quest for a Quantum Leap in Human Affairs

 

By Ervin Laszlo

We are approaching a major watershed; a global tipping point.  Our very survival is in question.

 

We are destroying the planet. The production of essential biological and physical resources has already peaked.  Forests, species of fish, and coral reefs are damaged and disappearing, soils are impoverished by overcropping and by chemicals; diversity is reduced by genetic manipulation. The reserves of fresh water are diminishing; more than half the world’s population faces water shortages. And climate change threatens to make much of the planet unsuited for food production and habitation.

 

We are destroying the fabric of society. There is growing insecurity in countries both rich and poor and greater propensity to resort to terrorism and war. Islamic fundamentalism is spreading throughout the Middle East, religious fanaticism is growing in America, neo-Nazi and other extremist movements are surfacing in Europe. The gap is widening between the wealthy and powerful and the poor and marginalized. Eighty percent of the world’s domestic product belongs to one billion people, and the remaining twenty percent is shared by five-and-a-half billion. One in three urban dwellers live in slums, shantytowns and urban ghettoes; more than 900 million are classified as slum-dwellers.

 

If we continue in this way, changing weather patterns will create drought and hurricanes, harvest failures, and rising sea levels.  Famine and frustration will fuel terrorism and trigger wars.  The delicate balance of our global interdependence will READ ENTIRETY

State Law could Kill ‘Made in USA’ Label

8/1/2013 3:45 PM

 

And we wonder why our middle class is dying?????

 

State law could kill ‘Made in USA’ label


http://www.wnd.com/2013/06/state-law-could-kill-made-in-usa-label/?cat_orig=money

 

If a company wants to label its product “Made in the USA,” it had better beware of selling it in California, which may allow people to sue the company for using the label.

 

While the other 49 states adhere to federal standards allowing a product to carry the “Made in the USA” label if it is substantially manufactured in the U.S., California alone requires a product be 100-percent American made. Not a pin, not a screw can be made anywhere else.

 

In fact, in 2011 California’s Supreme Court affirmed in Kwikset v. Benson that the company Kwikset could be sued for using the label on one of its locks because the screws in it were manufactured in Mexico.

 

Far from protecting American manufacturers and consumers, however, even the Made in USA Foundation is warning California’s law is placing a chilling effect on American companies everywhere.

 

“In our new global economy it is virtually impossible to manufacture a high-tech product 100-percent in the USA,” explained Joel Joseph, chairman of the Made in the USA Foundation, in support of a California Assembly bill that would amend the law and bring the state into line with federal guidelines.

 

“The fact that California is the only state in the nation to have such rigid standards is a barrier to business,” added California Assemblyman Brian Jones, R-Santee, sponsor of the bill, AB 890, which was blocked in committee June 25 but has been granted reconsideration. “The inconsistency in law has resulted in (READ THE RESTState law could kill ‘Made in USA’ label: ‘Joblessness and dysfunctional government go hand in hand’; By Drew Zahn; WND; 6/30/13 1:33 PM)

LBMA Data: Beyond The Smoke And Mirrors

 

By Michael O’Brien

2 August 2013

On Wednesday, the London Bullion Market Association (LBMA) published June clearing turnover statistics for the over-the-counter London Gold Market which revealed a new multi-year record of astronomical monthly ‘gold clearing’ activity for June and rounded off a quarter of record activity from April to June, a period during which the gold price fell substantially. These monthly statistics are usually released at least one month after the end of the reporting month, hence the latest figures were released on July 31st.

 

On a six month comparison from January to June 2013, even though the gold price fell by 20.7% over the period, demand for gold shot up by 39%. As the LBMA commented on Wednesday:

 

“demand for gold has increased by 39% since January, buoyed by strong physical demand particularly from China and India which has more than offset sales by ETF funds in the western economies”

 

June gold clearing figures broke a new record for millions of ounces transferred with on average 29 million ounces transferred (cleared) per day in the London Market, improving on the previous multi-year record of 28.2 million ounces transferred per day which was reached in May.

 

Since the gold price trended lower in June compared in May, the average daily value in US dollar cleared was lower in June than in May, even though volume was higher. The June average daily number of gold transfers reached READ ENTIRETY

Well No Wonder the Support at the Federal Level for Obamacare will Continue!!!!!!!!

The Office of Personnel Management, under heavy pressure from Capitol Hill, will issue regulations saying that the government can continue to make the employer contribution to the health plans of congressional members and aides, according to several Hill sources.

Lawmakers and staff can breathe easy — their health care tab is not going to soar next year.

 

The Office of Personnel Management, under heavy pressure from Capitol Hill, will issue a ruling that says the government can continue to make a contribution to the health care premiums of members of Congress and their aides, according to several Hill sources.


A White House official confirmed the deal and said the proposed regulations will be issued next week.


Just Wednesday, POLITICO reported that President Barack Obama told Democratic senators that he was personally involved in finding a solution.

 

The problem was rooted in the original text of the Affordable Care Act. Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) inserted a provision which said members of Congress and their aides must be covered by plans “created” by the law or “offered through an exchange.” Until now, OPM had not said if the Federal Employee Health Benefits Program could contribute premium payments toward plans on the exchange. If payments stopped, lawmakers and aides would have faced thousands of dollars in additional premium payments each year. Under the old system, the government contributed nearly 75 percent of premium payments.

Know your Dollar – Explore Porter Stansberry Ad


Dollar Crash like burning plane

Below is the 51 page text of the video that pitches a subscription to Stansberry’s Investment Advisory. When you get weary of the promoted video or actually watch it to its end then “X” out of the webpage then you will get the pop-up that asks to if you desire to leave the page or stay on the page. If you choose “stay” you are transferred to the text I wrote below.

 

Stansberry often advertises via Conservative websites with some kind of hook similar to the “WARNING” in the opening paragraph. I am not necessarily a promoter of Stansberry’s business opportunities however the pitch leading up to the product promoted is often informative. This is one of those cases.

 

This huge article is something that is very informative on a perspective of the U.S. Dollar’s future viability as the global currency. Of course the essential problem appears to be the Dollar is based on debt rather than precious metals such as gold, silver and etc.

 

I grasp history better than economics so a little of the terms in this sales pitch is something I had to look up to understand it. For example I was clueless on the significance of the International Monetary Fund’s (IMF) creation of a back-up monetary reserve that is not an actual currency but is based on the weight of value of major nations of which currently the USA is the primary nation. This IMF back-up monetary reserve is called Special Drawing Rights (SDR):

 

… defined on the IMF website as,

 

“…an international reserve asset, created by the IMF in 1969 to supplement the existing official reserves of member countries.

 

The SDR is neither a currency, nor a claim on the IMF. Rather, it is a potential claim on the freely usable currencies of IMF members. Holders of SDRs can obtain these currencies in exchange for their SDRs in two ways: first, through the arrangement of voluntary exchanges between members; and second, by the IMF designating members with strong external positions to purchase SDRs from members with weak external positions. In addition to its role as a supplementary reserve asset, the SDR serves as the unit of account of the IMF and some other international organizations.” (Collapse of the Dollar – Only One “Party” can Speak the Truth; by Lee Cary; TeaParty911.com; 2/27/13 7:38 PM; READ ENTIRITY)

WARNING:

What you are about to read is controversial, and may be offensive to some audiences. Reader discretion is advised.

Hello. My name is Porter Stansberry.

Fourteen years ago, I founded Stansberry & Associates Investment Research. It has since become the largest firm of its kind in the world. We specialize in financial research, and serve hundreds of thousands of paid subscribers in more than 120 countries.

You may know of our firm because of the work we did over the last several years – helping investors avoid the big disasters associated with Wall Street’s collapse.

We warned people to avoid Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, Lehman Brothers, General Motors and dozens of other companies that have since collapsed.

We even helped our subscribers find opportunities to profit from these moves by shorting stocks and buying put options. To my knowledge, no other research firm in the world can match our record of correctly predicting the catastrophe that occurred in 2008, and the rebound that has occurred since then.

The video presentation we created three years ago, to explain the financial crisis, and our thoughts on what would happen next, has become the most-watched on-line financial video in history, as far as we can tell.

But that’s not why I created this follow-up presentation.

I reference our success and experience with Wall Street’s latest crisis because we believe there is an even bigger crisis lurking –something that will shake the very foundation of America.

I know that to most people, the situation seems to be getting better. Stocks have recovered nearly all their losses. Real estate has rebounded. Unemployment and bankruptcies have dropped. But here’s the thing:

 

The unfortunate reality is that we are actually in a much more dangerous and precarious place today than we were five years ago.

 

 

And that is why I’ve spent a significant amount of time and money in the past few months preparing this presentation.

In short, I want to talk about a specific event that will take place in America’s very near future… which could actually bring our country and our way of life to a grinding halt.

Gold and Oil work for USA rather than Against

Not long ago I posted on how OPEC controls the global economy which of course affects the U.S. economy through a monopolizing bloc controlling oil. The theme of the post ran something like if the USA developed alternative fuels for motor vehicles it would eliminate the OPEC stranglehold on our economy. Here is a quote for thought:

 

If you follow our email alerts you know that last year we actively supported a bill called The Open Fuel Standard Act. Simply put, this bill would break up the liquid fuel monopoly that now exists. This monopoly guarantees that the only fuel you can buy for your car or truck is gasoline (or, at most, gasoline containing a small percentage of ethanol).

If we are to ever really break the back of the OPEC price-fixing cartel, we must break the gasoline monopoly. The first step is ensuring that cars can actually run on other fuels such as methanol, which can be made from natural gas, coal, even waste such as grass clippings.

Did you know that, with just a few minor alterations to your car, it’s possible to run it on methanol—at a significant savings over the cost of gas?

 

I was excited about this visionary thinking.

 

NOW I just finished reading an article about Russia and China hoarding gold as a medium of exchange by eliminating U.S. dollars as the global currency thus ending the power of petrodollars. You have to realize that Russia and China are friends with the OPEC giants.

 

The implication of the article is gold-currency will replace petrodollars thus placing a coffin nail in the U.S. economy.

 

I am just thinking out loud here. What if Russia and China succeed in replacing petro-gold for petrodollars? Essentially the fall of the dollar would again bring back a gold standard as the foundation of the global economy. I think that is a good thing.

 

Yes adjustments would have to be made for the U.S. dollar. A forced global gold standard could force America back to a gold standard because of the global oil economy. AND STILL the USA can use innovation to develop alternative fuels to at least end any American dependence of OPEC oil. Russia and China might succeed in supplanting the dollar with gold, but a transformed fuel economy free of fossil fuel from OPEC would also stimulate the U.S. economy. Suddenly America might become the exporter of alternative fuel competing with OPEC fossil fuel.

 

So here’s the thing. Gold replaces debt as the standard for the U.S. economy. A new industry involving alternative fuel for motor vehicles will effectively compete with OPEC but also place a huge crunch in their profits which in turn might actually drive down the price of fossil fuel again.

 

Essentially folks this is a win-win for the U.S. economy in placing the dollar back on a market economy rather than a debt economy while at the same time innovating a globally competitive industry again strengthening America as a financial giant.

 

Like I said I am just thinking out loud because I certainly am no economist. Nonetheless, grass roots Capitalism will benefit all Americans over the Eco-Marxism that fearless leader President Obama supports.
