Archive for the ‘Patriot Act’ tag
What a joke. The former Pennsylvania had more time to speak in the debates then Ron Paul. I wonder were this surge is coming from? Is it another media fabricated illusion to deflect the rising popularity of Ron Paul. Mr Bomb any nation that might be a threat that has never attacked us. How is selling more wars giving him a surge in the polls? I wonder were is the money coming from to fund his campaign? He is not getting record contributions from the military.
The republican party is running out of flavors of the week. Michelle Bachman says God tells her to hate Muslims, who cheated the Iowa Straw poll. Herman Cain who was a former Kansas City Federal Reserve Chairman who had extra marital affairs crashed and burned. Mitt Romney has no fire to woo the voters. Rick Perry was exposed for forcing teen girls in Texas to take shots that were proven unsafe was politically destroyed. Newt has been exposed for his serial hypocrisy playing both sides of the issues. So now they are bringing forth the new flavor of the week and that is war loving Senator Rick Santorum. This one term Senator is just the same old flavor with some sprinkles on top.
They are running out of losers to prop up as a front runner. There is no top tier candidate besides Ron Paul. Ron Paul made Rick Santorum look like a fool calling the loser Senator on his flawed foreign policy. Rick Santorum rating will drop like a stone like the other neo cons have fallen in election cycle. It is too late to bring in Jeb Bush, Chris Cristi or Mitch Daniels. John Huntsmen is no style to be the flavor of the week. They are running out of stooges. Ron Paul will be the last man standing when it is all said and done. We have the momentum now. Let use it to our advantage.
Rick Santorum’s plea of this phony Islamic threat does not wash anymore. The goverment is the threat the American people face. We are groped in the airports with this massive expansion of the size of goverment has sent a swarm of agents out to eat of our substance. Him voting for the Patriot Act saying we need this law shows why he is not going to get any traction in the polls no matter how much the GOP establishment and the media prop him up. Why should not fear Muslims. People fear the TSA grabbing our crotches more then people living in caves half way around the world. This is why Ron Paul is winning. Liberty sells. Ask Kelly Clarkson.
Resolved: The World Hates Us For Our Freedom!
While written before the dasterdly Senate vote, Jim Kirwin’s analysis is excellent and should be read by all.

November 11, 2011
WE LET THE CONSTITUTION BE DESTROYED!
Thus reported the Washington Post already in 2002.
The war on terror has no doubt had unintended consequences onAmerican freedom. But recent talk has escalated the already prevalent fears of a police state, and the story is indeed compelling. When the best of the liberal leftists and the best of the conspiracy theorists agree, you know it’s at least going to be interesting.Today Alex Jones updated his promotion of the ACLU’s monitoring of Senate Bill 1867, the National Defense Authorization Act. The ACLU reported already last Wednesday, The bill itself specifically says that
“The requirement to detain a person in military custody under this section does not extend to citizens of the United States.”
This is the very language Amash says is misleading:
“Note that it does not preclude U.S. citizens from being detained indefinitely, without charge or trial, it simply makes such detention discretionary.”
After reading the text of the bill, I believe Amash is essentially correct. The two sections of the 680-page bill which have drawn all the attention are 1031 and 1032. Section 1031 gives “authorization”for detention, and 1032 gives the “requirement for military custody.”The special exemption for U.S. citizens is under section 1032, and specifically says it refers to “this section.”
This means it does not apply to the previous section in which lies an abuse just as egregious-the “authorization” to detain all “covered persons” in “disposition” which includes, Detention under the law of war without trial until the end of the hostilities authorized by the Authorization for Use of Military Force.-Sec.1031(c) (1) There is no exemption for U.S. citizens in this section.
This threat to our liberties-while it could be defended as only pertaining explicitly to 9-11 type terrorists is definitely an expansion of the Federal police and military power into the civilian life of the U.S. It is dangerous, and should be opposed on principle. Further, the bill was crafted secretly without hearing or debate by a liberal Democrat, Carl Levin, along with John McCain, and purports to besimply a Defense spending bill. Deep in its behemoth 680 pages lies this attackon civil liberties. Sen. Lindsey Graham bragged it will
“basically say in law for the first time that the homeland is part of the battlefield.”
Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) seconded,
“America is part of the battlefield.”
But if America is declared a battle zone, then the rules of war apply in this land. This means de facto that some form of martial law applies.This means, as WaPo said at the beginning of this article, that there’s an alternate system-and perhaps it can apply to any of us. This has been going on already since 2001:” (1) “I am sometimes baffled by how quickly many people quickly assume that because they were not personally named in some piece of legislation, that somehow the provisions of that legislation do not and could not apply to them.
Having spent a great deal of time over the years dissecting changes to code & title and the ever popular “redefinition ofterms” used to change the entire common understanding of what a word or phrase means within these tortured constructs called legislation, I knowbetter. My recent article on S.1867 elicited comments to the effect that a few commenters’ had read the bill and that I was simply being inflammatory and emotional. Yes, of course. That must be it. Lest anyone forget: The insidious Patriot Act followed by
The Security Enhancement Act of 2003,
the infamous Military Commissions Act 2006,
followed by the John Warner Defense Authorization Act 2007 and,
which called for the suspension of habeas corpus (4th Amendmentdue process)
all of which gave the president the power to arbitrarily determine on his own, that any one of us was a “domestic terrorist”and going even further to
allow the president to strip us of our citizenship at his discretion with no oversight.
Each of these unconstitutional bills was a piece of the puzzle being constructed incrementally as the Constitution and our rights were being trashed. These anti-American laws were not the only affront to the Constitution, our rights and the advancement of the police state. Now why, you might be asking, would anyone want to give the president of the United States the arbitrary authority to strip any US citizen of their citizenship with noevidence other than his/her belief that one of us is a terrorist, or supports terrorism, without the evidence supporting that contention, or being officially charged with a crime? Most recently, Obama has approved a new program which allows him to authorize the targeted killing of people in foreign countries that the administration decides is a threat (to them) and includes targeting of UScitizens right here at home and abroad.
This program, which is nothing more than sanctified murder, is a violation of international laws which prohibit the killing of individuals outside of armed combat zones. The program will allow the CIA or the military the unchecked authority to murder at will, US citizens and others, around the globe without any evidence of crime, threat or violent activity towards the United States, other than they said so. The intent through all of these assaults on the Constitution andour protected rights has been to find the means to redefine any one of us as anon-military enemy combatant to facilitate the police state. Once redefined, once the definitive description of who and what we are has been altered to suit the government agenda, it is open season on any one of us.” (2) These two articles outline just part of the problem that this pending legislation (it won’t be voted on for awhile yet); presents for all of us. What is clear is that this SECRET piece of legislation was clearly TREASON.The Congress cannot write legislation that criminalizes free speech or thatends (without debate) their congressional duty to represent the public in thisgovernment. We already have a government that has stripped away so many things that it seems impossible to enumerate them all. (3)
But we might want to begin to think about some of what this could mean for the government, and for us: Given that the government now believes that they are living in a State that is suddenly filled withTerrorists, instead of loyal citizens.
There is no precedent for this government to assume the entire nation is potentially criminal, until each of us has proven that we are innocent, each and every time a government thug wants to talk to anyone here: This is unprecedented, and there is absolutely no reason for this behavior. Also we were in business with the US government. That arrangement has gone from paying the government a token percentage of what each of us earns to a whopping 85%^ of everything we make.
And on top of that we must ask government before we are “allowed” to do anything.
At the very least we must STOP paying taxes, because the entitythat is charging us those taxes is no longer legal.
We no longer have a Constitution; ergo we no longer have the Republic, in which this compact was created.
This government is a privately held corporation and not a government:
Officially it’s called United States Incorporated so there is no reason to pay them taxes, since none of us gave them permission to”privatize” us ~ so in reality they cannot and do not own us! They (USI) went to war illegally and unilaterally; then they sought to find a way to by-pass the legal system so that they could detain people without trials, primarily because they have NO EVIDENCE!
This government created the operation on 911 that gave them hypothetical reasons for war, without proof for any of their allegations. Now they want the effects of their WAR-Crime to spill over onto their critics of these global wars for Colonial power, for resources, and for pure unadulterated-greed.
Since that could not be done by using the existing court systemthey have set out to create a whole new and illegal system by SECRETLY writing new regulations and making new rulings without bothering about the actual international rules of war; which include torture and indefinite detention.
On top of all of this they have invented out of a file drawer in CIA headquarters something called Al Qaeda; which has never existed except as a CIA operational group, prior to 911.
Now in concert with Zionist television programming and films, as well as government psy-ops releases they would have the whole world believe that Al Qaeda actually exists:
That is just another lie to keep the public under their collective feather-beds.
But in practical terms what does it mean if we no longer have a functioning congress, legally binding courts, or even the supposed bedrock ofthe Republic-the Constitution?
That means that we don’t have a country anymore.
And since the government is no more ~ why would anyone chose to pay them taxes?
For that matter what does this do to all those corporations which this so-called government has supposedly backed since the founding of the country? On the bright side would be that without a government all corporate charters would be null and void and probably 80 % + of the corporations would be gone over night.
Without a functioning government who then owns all that land that the USG says belongs to them?
The government (USI) is limited to ten-square-miles INSIDE Washington D.C.?
Beyond that ten mile by ten mile square, this “government has no power at all, except whatever people choose to give it?
We have paid for all of it, from police equipment to the roads and bridges to the parks and open range; that all belongs to us, not to them.
The so-called cops are just rented uniforms that no longer come with either badges or names, so they too are corporate-slaves with no power of their own.
If you think that’s extreme then just remember that this government only “rules” by the consent of the governed and that hasn’t happened since Gee W. Bush stole the Tarnished House on 12-12-2000! Like it or not the USA has become just another cheap and backward Empire that has an ego the size of the Colossus of Rhodes (The 8th wonder of the World which has of course disappeared into the mists of history).
Moreover what will happen when someone finally tells our troopson the frontlines that “there is no longer a US Constitution!
No more freedoms (of any kind) exist in America and there is no reason to fight to protect a so-called country that doesn’t exist”?
Here’s what Obama himself has said about this topic! :
“My administration has begun to reshape the standards that apply to insure that they are in-line with the rule of law. We must have clear defensible and lawful standards for those who fall into this category.
We must have a thorough process of periodic review so that any prolonged detention is carefully evaluated and justified. Our goal is justify a legitimate legal framework for the remaining Guantanemo detainees that come out to be transferred. Our goal is not to avoid a legitimate legal framework. In our constitutional system prolonged detention should not be the decision of any one man. If and when we determine that the United States must hold individuals, to keep them from carrying out an act of war, we will do so within a system that involves judicial and congressional oversight. And so going forward my administration will work with congress to develop an appropriate legal regime so that our efforts are consistent withor values and our Constitution.
(The Threat that Obama says makes indefinite -detention necessary) Right now in distant training camps in other cities there are people plotting to take American lives.
That will be the case a year from now, five years from now, and in all probability ten years from now.” Watch the entire tape, because it is literal dynamite! (4)
I wonder if we can get them home before BLACK CHRISTMAS, 2011?

I wrote Arrogance of a Banker. I thought that would stir someone up enough to do something, but it didn’t.
I Stole 3.5 Trillion Dollars From You. I Dare You To Do Something. This is how my friends and I stole 2.2 trillion dollars of your money in the 1990s and more since. The Treasury sells bonds to pay the deficit using the New York branch of the Federal Reserve and what are called Primary Dealers. What we did was really simple. We just sold 2.2 trillion dollars in Treasury bonds over and above what the deficit required in the 1990s. All you had to do to arrest everyone in Wall Street was to examine the books at Cantor Fitzgerald’s offices at One World Trade Center on the 101st to 105th floors. Too bad all the evidence went up in smoke on 9-11-2001.
There were no repercussions for taking down the World Trade Center with nanothermite and controlled demolitions. Well timed and placed explosions turned 440,000 cubic yards of concrete (336,404 cubic meters) into dust in less than 3 seconds but most people believed that jet fuel alone did that. What a laugh.
That was so funny and made so much money for us that we decided to do it again. We sold 1.5 trillion more in bonds than the deficits required over a period of 45 months. So far nothing has happened. I know we can’t cover it up by blowing up the World Trade Center again. But we can always launch World War III. We were planning another war anyway.
I need to make something perfectly clear that people do not seem to understand. Catherine Austin Fitts has been telling people about the billions of dollars that goes missing every week from government spending. She was at Housing and Urban Development and said 59.3 billion dollars went missing from HUD in just two years. Most of you know that Donald Rumsfeld and rabbi Dov Zakheim, the Comptroller of the Pentagon, admitted on 9-10–2001 that 2.3 trillion dollars went missing from the Department of Defense. Fortunately, neither Rumsfeld nor Zakheim were looking for that missing money on 9-11-2001 because Flight 77 just happened to crash into the Pentagon auditing section and killed the auditors who were hot on the trail of the missing trillions.
The money Catherine said has been stolen from federal spending you as a mere peasant are not allowed to audit is in my estimate about 4 billion dollars a week. But that is completely separate from the money we pocket from selling phony Treasury bonds.
Let me give a clear example so even the dumbest Christian Zionist can understand. In June of last year approximately 15.3 billion dollars (at a rate of 4 billion dollars a week for 4.3 weeks) was stolen from unaudited government spending. This helped run the deficit up from 53.7 billion dollars to 68 billion. So the Treasury in June of last year had to raise a total of 68 billion including the 15.3 billion Catherine was speaking about. The New York FED and the primary dealers sold a total of 211 billion dollars. If you subtract the 68 billion actually needed from the 211, you get a total of 142 billion dollars we pocketed from the sale of phony Treasury bonds. Now go back and add in the 15.3 billion to the 142 billion and you get a total of 155.3 billion dollars we stole in just one month from you. Like I said, “What are you going to do about it?”
I will not confuse you by asking you to subtract out the cost of running six foreign wars from the actual deficit of 53.7 billion dollars. Nor will I ask you to subtract out the cost of the banker Bailouts. All that math might blow a circuit in your brain and send you into a rage charging down Wall Street with a pitchfork looking for men in $3,000 Armani suits.
Look at those clowns we own who represent you in Washington. Has anyone dared say that the deficit and all of these drastic spending cuts could be avoided if they just eliminated gross fraud? Has anyone said we don’t have to have deficits. Let’s have a debt free money like Presidents Lincoln and Kennedy? No.
Let me tell you why. We own the Congress. We have owned every President since we killed Kennedy. We own both political parties. We own the News Media. We own the Foundations. We own the courts. We sent your jobs overseas when we closed 50,000 American factories. If you have a house, we will soon foreclose on it and kick you and your family out into the streets. You will have nothing left. To escape the misery we inflicted on you, you might gladly die in the next war so we can exterminate the Muslims, take their oil and double the price of gasoline.
I guess too many people have been reading the Patriot Act, The Military Commissions Act of 2006 and 2009 and the John Warner Defense Authorization Act. Or maybe they read stories about the torture of children at Abu Ghraib in order to make their parents confess to crimes they never committed. Whatever the reason is. They haven’t come looking for me yet.
I wrote this because after writing 25 Reasons To Absolutely Despise Bankers And Their Minions a lot of people did not believe what I said. I was merely repeating things any casual reader of Internet news would have known. Granted you will never see that on FOX or MSNBC. So I gave a few references and the critics ran the other way. Below is a video interview with Jim Willie who has a PhD in statistics. Maybe you who cannot believe the American government is so corrupt will believe him when he says it. He is interviewed by Max Keiser who is of Jewish descent.
There is also a rather intriguing story from June 2009 about two Japanese men headed to Switzerland who were detained in Italy with 134 billion dollars in US Treasury bonds. The bonds turned out to be of a denomination higher than the US Treasury admitted they ever made. It is illegal to possess counterfeit securities, but the men were sent back to Japan without being charged. Bloomberg did a story a few days later saying this was merely bizarre news. Catherine Austine Fitts in an interview with Max Keiser said it was very possible that the US Treasury was issuing bonds that were never registered officially. You can read the Bloomberg whitewash by Googling Suitcase With $134 Billion Puts Dollar on Edge. Or you can watch the video below.
Whatever way you interpret these videos you must conclude there are two classes of people in this world. And you are not in the favored class unless you are a multi-billionaire. Those few at the top are stealing everything you had before the next Depression wipes out what little you have left.
Billions of people will die of starvation and in wars and revolutions if we do not stop these mad men and soon. Did I neglect to mention the coming plagues bio-engineered by the bankers and their employees at the CIA, the Mossad and MI6?
The Elite Final Plan: The AGI Manhattan Project
The world keeps getting crazier and crazier, at an accelerating rate, and we haven’t seen anything yet. At a glance it all appears to be impossible. Impossible to happen, yet even more impossible to stop. Unpossible because it promises to undo every notion that we know about this world and the future of the human species. Here you will find answers and truths that explain it, and cannot be found anywhere else. Here you will find the why of it all, and even the solutions to undo this dystopian technological agenda.
The push for trillion dollar military budgets to fight “terrorists”, as if they’re the Soviet Union, doesn’t make much sense. Neither does the extreme global warming related proposals, such as a global government and a global carbon tax which will bankrupt what’s left of the worlds economy on its own. All this push, while the premises of these issues are highly debatable. That’s the truth that the advocates pushing for either issue doesn’t want to admit. Ask yourself when haven’t you seen 2 people dramatize an event between them, and didn’t each have different stories to what actually happened?
Meanwhile, not only has the global economy imploded rather dramatically, all the hard numbers point to a total collapse, especially in the USA. The Federal Reserve and Eurobank are both privately owned institutions, and there’s no debating this fact. The Federal Reserve in particular was at the heart of the US economic meltdown, which brought the rest of the world with it. These institutions are literally at the helm of each federal economy, and aren’t subject to being audited. They’re above each government, just the same as your local city government is subject to the state government, and the state to the federal government.
So we’re in the middle of a collapse that by all measures looks deliberate, that was caused by private stock holders, who made unfathomable amounts of cash on the ways up and down, and were handed trillions of unaccountable dollars in “bailout” money. Despite all of this, there’s still this push for a near-trillion dollar military budget (in the US alone), along with a global government based on a global carbon tax. Meanwhile the new administration is spending at all time record levels on all other fronts. We’re already on the brink here, how can they push harder, and tax us in all new ways? How can this looming total collapse not be deliberate? Why won’t they stop spending, and is there something this a lot of this money is going to that answers this question? The answer is yes.
We’re in a new world that changes everyday. Technology keeps expanding in its abilities, and our own. This is all happening at en exponentially increasing rate. This refers to its “doubling rate”, and in general the power of computational technology doubles roughly every 18 months, while it’s cost drops by half. This is most well known with computer CPU’s, but this rule applies with a similar rate to virtually every facet of technology, including revolutionary new technologies. There are 4 main areas of technology I’m referring to: nanotechnology, biotechnology, information technology, and cognitive sciences. They’re all beginning to merge in different ways in each area of technology and innovation.
This is very important. This answers the questions being posed above. These new thrusts in science are giving rise to new technologies that are game changers in human society. Mankind is on the verge of radical life extension, brain implants, nanobots, and a wide range of related technologies with artificial intelligence in the middle of it all. Technological progress increases with it’s own doubling rate. Meanwhile there’s an ever increasing push for more and more powerful artificial intelligence, so powerful in fact it’s like what you see in the sci-fi horror movies. Who hasn’t heard of Skynet? What they’re trying to build is already poised to be vastly more powerful than how it was depicted in the Terminator films.
This sounds insane, but it’s absolutely true and there is no debating this fact whatsoever, as we’ll see. At this point, even a conspiracy theorist might say that if there are powerful elites in control of everything, why would they risk losing that control in the face of a global artificial general intelligence (AGI) network? The answer is simple: they firmly believe that they’ll be able to live virtually indefinite life-spans, literally hundreds upon hundreds of years. They believe they’ll be able to stop and then even reverse aging. They believe they’ll be able have enhanced physical and cognitive abilities, as well as being able to connect to a new type of global consciousness based Internet, in a hive mind.
They literally believe they’ll become gods, and there have been many scientific break-thru’s that suggest they might be right on everything just listed. It all answers why we’re being bled and bankrupted at an increasing pace. They literally say we’ll face war if we try to stop them from becoming gods. I argue that this war has already begun, and the original questions answer the how and the why.
If you listen closely to Global Warming rhetoric in particular, or most environmentalist rhetoric in general, there’s a total disdain for humans and our populations. Note that multinational energy companies such as Enron and BP helped design the carbon trading scheme, even though supposedly the energy companies are to be the ones to lose out. But it’s what global climate change efforts have in common with the global War on Terror that this is all about.
Efforts from both the global War on Terror and global climate change are fueling funding in artificial intelligence, while helping keep everyone divided and distracted from debating the implications of the four aforementioned revolutionary sciences. Recall that AI, and especially AGI, inherently increases the rate at which the elites might get their hands on their god technologies. This common thread between these issues you will not see anywhere else.
Whatever is actually possible, it’s all coming sooner than the masses would think. Even majority of the front-men of this movement speak loudly about their dream wherever they can be heard, but they seem to project it as if it’s only something for the next-generation to be concerned. They carefully leave out the true scope of the current military science R&D. One thing is for sure, which is that they don’t care about you and me. Their job is to condition the masses so when this comes we’re not taken by total shock & awe, but not tell us enough so that today we might stand up appalled.
There’s a Manhattan Project type initiative to perhaps leave us with less than 5 years time till the beginning of the end. The players are the United States government & military with key corporations like Google and IBM. They’re doing much of it without explicitly telling you, and much of it is being done on your dime. The facts can be found in their own words, documents and websites. It’s not even a secret except that few would ever suspect the initiative or possibility, while the controlled Big 5 Media machine fails to make much mention let alone deliver actual context.
We exist under a so-called 2 party system. These 2 parties work in concert together to ensure that no “3rd parties” have any chance of succeeding, despite giving us a facade of being mortal enemies. They’re almost perfectly totally against what the other is doing, but each side is still inherently supporting the same Technocracy agenda in what they do push for, while most of the time the career politicians are generally just paying lip service to the ideals that are expected of them.
“Democrats” fling all sorts of anti-war talk, but still vote to fund the wars, and American Imperialism in general. The US has over 760 military bases in foreign nations, which the rest of the world knows to be a classical empire, and the Democrats are just as responsible for it. Meanwhile the “Republicans” talk all sorts of small government rhetoric, while helping expand government and spending over the past 10 years. Democrats and Republicans are both just as responsible to the shipping of our jobs overseas so that we can only afford Chinese garbage products that aren’t even worth fixing when they break. We don’t only use crude oil for fuel, we literally need it to be able to make virtually everything we enjoy in our daily modern lives.
The other related issue that we can all thank both Democrat and Republican career politicians for is the rapidly growing trend towards a Big Brother Police State. We’re on the verge of collapse, by their doings, yet they have more and more billions of dollars per year to spend on new ways to completely violate the Bill of Rights and spy on us in real time with virtually every device in our existence, while building a militarized police apparatus ready to crush any peaceful protest movement with state of the art technologies. Majority of the “western world” is already under a pervasive real time dragnet that makes the spying of the Soviet Union look like 1980′s 8-bit video games compared to XBox 360.
This is supposed to be a free nation, yet we’re not even free to move to the other side of the world and not pay taxes. We face prison time and the confiscation of our homes for possession of certain natural drugs that are less toxic than most of the drugs cooked up in big pharmaceutical labs that we’re overcharged for. We’re free to talk, but we’re completely marginalized, and talking about the government these days gets you put on terrorist no fly lists. We’re not even free to travel without being groped and naked body scanned, for a threat that didn’t even kill as many people in the year 2001 as did everyday aspirin.
The reality is, by all definitions, here in the US we’ve been enveloped by corporate fascism, while holding the world hostage as the only remaining “superpower” aka global empire. We have both the Democrats and Republicans to thank for this, including Obama, and Bush. Except the Democrats try and act different, by offering us global communism. The problem is that total communism and total fascism are technically indistinguishable, both being centralized government totalitarianism.
To assume there isn’t a group of like-minded people, large or small, that have the same elitist agenda, and power, especially considering all of the undeniable realities we face, is insanity. It’s not like there’s some watchdog organization that makes sure we’re not being undermined by some sort of oligarchy ‘click’. It could be said that there are, but they’re usually labeled kooky conspiracy theorists. Meanwhile technology marches on, and the elites of the world get closer and closer to becoming gods, and cutting us out.
It all starts with the technology side, the AGI Manhattan Project. Next comes the system behind it, and the war against the masses which has already begun. It ends with the psychology and philosophy of the people working for it, and those behind it.
The AGI Manhattan Project:
Radical life extension, along with body & brain augmentation, each aspects of the growing movement known as “Transhumanism”, are the overarching goals of the establishment. The first and foremost “holy grail” goal is Strong AI, aka Artificial General Intelligence. The world is full of AI; from video games to the stock market. But these AI’s are “narrow” in ability. AGI refers to a “general” intelligence. Generally intelligent, not narrowly. Human level and beyond intelligence would greatly accelerate their other technological goals kicking off what they call the “Technological Singularity”.
Regardless of whether or not you believe this to be possible, they’re actively doing it, and they’re taxing you for it. There is absolutely no debate or refutation to this fact whatsoever. This isn’t even to say it’s possible, but they’re trying with all of their might (and your money)to do it. It’s right on public military websites, and in video statements by the higher ups and even heads of top tech corporations.
Perhaps most importantly, especially considering how if they succeed it would be arguably the biggest event in human history, and most potentially devastating, with almost no chance of turning back, it’s all happening without an ounce of public discourse or debate.
This overall effort openly involves virtually every government agency and department, every branch of military, which are all funded by Congress, and led by the administrations of both George Walker Bush and Barack Hussein Obama. It also involves the projects and super computers at literally all major all national laboratories, along with virtually all national universities, and all of the above tied in with the majority of the crony heads of the top technology corporations.
The Pentagons Mad Science coordination division, aka Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), sits at the top of this dragnet of science research & development (R&D) gathering. Enter the Science pyramid… the AGI Manhattan Project.
DARPA is the lead agency. They are both the capstone, and the foundation. They coordinate national labs & universities, companies and corporations, and agencies with all branches of military. Their scientific “thrusts” run the entire gauntlet of transhumanist related efforts, from cybernetics to life extension to Skynet level artificially intelligent cognitive computers. They direct the R&D to the most appropriate groups and institutions, and then help orchestrate systems wide integration upon completion.

It’s very difficult to even attempt to place budget figures on DARPA. They have their budget, as well as their cousins IARPA & HSARPA, while a lot of work by NASA, the NSF is in lockstep, not to mention military black budgets and secretive CIA & DIA budgets.
Funding for virtually every aspect of government agendas has hardly even decreased, while many areas have seen increases. The unique thing about DARPA is they aren’t limited by their budget alone.
Singularity University, Intelligent Archives (IA), Intelligent Systems, High-End Computing Capability (HECC), Integrated Systems Research, Nanotechnology, Biotechnology, Cognitive Sciences, and a dizzying array of other complex projects in those research areas.
National Science Foundation (NSF) Programs:
Adaptive Systems Technology (AST), Cyber-enabled Discovery and Innovation (CDI), Behavioral and Cognitive Sciences (BCS), Emerging Frontiers (EF), Core BIO Investments, Adaptive Systems Technology (AST), Information and Intelligent Systems (IIS), Science and Engineering Beyond Moore’s Law, Cyber-physical Systems, Cognitive Engineering, Mapping the Brain in Time and Space, Cognitive Engineering,
One good example of virtually every government agency working in lockstep towards the Technological Singularity is the National Nanotechnology Initiative. The following institutions are all coordinated under the NNI, by the cabinet level National Science and Technology Council (NSTC):
Bureau of Industry and Security, Consumer Product Safety Commission, USDA, Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR), Army Engineering R&D Center, Army Research Laboratory (ARL), Army Research Office (ARO), DARPA, Defense Research & Engineering (DDR&E), Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA), Office of Naval Research (ONR), Department of Education, Department of Energy, Department of Homeland Security, Department of Justice, Department of Labor, Department of State, Department of Transportation, Department of Treasury, EPA, FDA, Forest Service, US Intelligence Community, U.S. International Trade Commission, NIH, NIST, NASA, NSF, Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Patent and Trademark Office and the US Geological Survey.
That about leaves out only the ATF and the DEA, and of course the CIA & NSA, but why would they be listed?
Another prime example of the system wide drive for the Singularity is a 2001 conference organized by the Dept. of Commerce and the NSF, which produced a 482 page document titled “Converging Technologies for Improving Human Performance”. It had representatives and speakers from the following institutions:
The White House, National Science Foundation (NSF), Department of Commerce, Newt Gingrich, NASA, National Institutes of Health, Hewlet Packard, Institute for Global Futures, National Science and Technology Councils Subcommittee on Nanoscale Science Engineering and Technology (NSET), IBM, Raytheon, Lucent, University of California, Stanford University, Sandia National Labs, Brandeis University, MIT, University of Washington, University of Strathclyde, Tissue Informatics, University of Pennsylvania, University of Louisville, NYU Medical School, University of Calgary, Duke University, University of Texas, UCSB, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, National Institute of Standards and Technology, Carnegie Melon University, Department of Defense, DARPA, Naval Research Laboratory, Defense For Research, New England Complex Systems Institute, University of Virginia, University of Maryland, Institute of Nanotechnology, Office of Science and Technology Policy, Commission on the Future of Aerospace, US Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Defense Threat Reduction Agency, The EPA, Department of Chemistry, Princeton Materials Institute …
The goal of the meeting wasn’t merely to promote the 4 “NBIC” technologies:
“Four transforming tools have emerged: nanotechnology for hardware, biotechnology for dealing with living systems, information technology for communication and control, and cognition-based technologies to enhance human abilities and collective behavior.”
Instead it was about structuring collaborative research to promote the converging of the 4 revolutionary science paradigms into an all new form of substrate. The goal being eventually to create and merge humans with new forms of synthetic “life”, to become “Post Humans”, and to merge humans into a brain implant enabled “hive mind” (that’s a quote).
Another choice example of cross-sector collaboration to construct the Singularity is the Singularity University, which is housed at none other than the NASA Ames Research Center (ARC), in Silicon Valley. It’s partners include Google, ePlanet, Autodesk, Motorola, FIAP, Steelcase, 23andMe, Canon, LinkedIn, WordPress, KurzweilAI, University of California, Stanford and others.
Universities are the next realm of the AGI Manhattan Project. It would be absurdly counterproductive to even list only the universities which are directly awarded project solicitations from DARPA. But the universities of most relevance here are Stanford, Carnegie, Duke, Vanderbilt, Caltech, the University of Chicago and University of California. These universities are amongst the forefront of transhumanist related research, and happen to be founded robber baron era industrial tycoons. These tycoons were heavy advocates for Eugenics, and their pet project schools listed above were amongst the leading fountain heads for eugenics theory. If you’re not aware of the history of eugenics this is required research material. By all measures, transhumanism is just the modern version of eugenics. A full history of eugenics and listing of their theories is beyond the scope here, but in short it was the race science and methods of ‘solution’ that influenced Hilter’s concentration camps.
National laboratories are the final realm. Literally all of them, and their supercomputers are fully integrated into the aforementioned apparatus. One example of choice would be Los Alamos, which was the home of the original Manhattan Project. They’re hooked up, along with many leading universities, into the NSF’s TeraGrid network, which is a super high speed advanced version of the Internet, designed specifically for large scale science collaboration across institutions, enabling access to the various different top-in-class supercomputers. What puts DARPA at the top of the scientific pyramid is that they have access to mining literally every resource, meaning even indirectly supportive work doe at different levels are still at their disposal for concept and results mining.
There’s no debating the existence of the AGI Manhattan Project. It can be ascertained that the countless thousands of people indirectly involved in it don’t even realize what they’re a part of. With global telecommunications now being radically different than 60 years ago, private intranets can connect up any remote office or personal computer as a collective. This means that a modern day Manhattan Project could be operated across the planet in secret with great ease. This would especially be the case if you had literally a million or more parallel platformed CPU’s at your disposal (like Google does). Consider that computing power per $1000 is literally less than millionth what was during the Manhattan Project, and that project only cost about US$24 billion. Anything even resembling a modern semiconductor computer hadn’t even been invented yet. Meanwhile, every year their capabilities expand as CPU prices drop and work gets easier, exponentially, thanks to Moore’s Law and the Law of Accelerating Returns.
The issue is what the intentions of the true elites that shape U.S. policy have in mind for all of this. Listening to the PR people of transhumanism should offer a safe insight: becoming “gods”.
There’s a war being waged against us. A great many of the people on the planet are feeling the effects from this already, via the economic meltdown. While the economic war didn’t against us started generations ago, the modern technological war came before the economic assault, so we’ll explore that first.
We’re being targeted as children with social engineering indoctrination, to be desensitized to perpetual surveillance, while being systematically dumbed down. Every year school children’s productivity scores twirl around the downward spiral, despite increases in Dept. of Education spending annually. You get what you pay for. Today when we’re born our DNA goes into a federal DNA Databank. Next the children are targeted by manipulative marketers openly bent on turning them into mindless brand loyalist consumers via TV and other forms of media. Finally they make it into school where they face being monitored via microphones while riding the bus, and then they’re under the watchful eye of cameras and on duty police, including cameras in the restrooms and in some cases inside the actual toilets, and at lunch they pay using their thumbprint. Finally, when they go home they have to worry about being recorded by camera on school issued laptops and tracked with GPS trackers.
Perhaps in a few years the system will start installing full naked body scanners into schools like are going into all of the airports. As adults we’re being trained to be subjected to being frisked or filed into a naked body scanner, which are meant to become mandatory. You would never see a government official go through one of these and then post the images online, yet in the UK even children are supposed to go through them even though it violates child pornography laws. All of this over a ‘panty bomber’ plot that didn’t succeed, where reports suggest that the scanners wouldn’t have caught him, while the real problem was that he got on the plane without a passport. All of this being conducted by the TSA, while Obama has appointed a controversial spy figure to head the agency. It’s no surprise when we hear reports of maniac TSA employees power tripping over citizens and literally declaring themselves to be god.
We’re not even allowed to have privacy in our homes. It used to be illegal for any level of government to tap our phones without a warrant. Now the NSA, FBI and others do it anyways with an ongoing record of ‘abuse’. They decided that unilaterally, even though not even the Patriot Act set the precedent. But under the “Patriot Act” they can literally break into your home without anyone’s knowledge and go through your things and plant bugs, which opens the door to the planting of false evidence. They peek into our mail. Popping up in cities are police cameras with high-res night vision lenses than can zoom into peoples windows. Every census has them asking ever more personal questions, this time asking virtually everything, while having the census takers use a GPS transponder to mark your front door into their system. This is precisely what they used to do in the Soviet Union. Today it appears on virtually all fronts that despite out living the Soviets, the US federal government has become the enemy and makes those who criticize it enemies of the state.
When we’re being targeted, it can be assumed that we’re the enemy. We’re especially targeted on the Internet. Not only do many of the relevant Internet companies store our personal emails and surfing habits, they’re pushed by various levels of government to do so for at least 5 years. Between the military, CIA, FBI, NSA and local police we’re monitored browsing the web, using all of the major social networks and in video games. In case you assume they don’t have enough people to do all of this, they’re using AI in countless forms to catalog and chronicle all of the data they can. They even use AI to assess bloggers “moods”, for “hate speech” and other “subversive” behavior. All of this for domestic citizens, as now the “terrorist threats” are citizens from “supporters of the Constitution”, to “Luddites” and “conspiracy theorists” who complain about all of this Big Brother technology invading their rights to privacy. Next Obama is moving to create an ID token “Identity Ecosystem” designed to remove passwords from everything we do, where instead our personal names are tied to every single electronic device and component therein, right down to the flash memory chip you plug into your digital camera.
Then when we try to leave our homes it’s the same story. You walk out your door and a military satellite might spot you. Then you get into your car, that has an increasing chance of being equipped with trackable GPS. Your drive down the road to have your face and license plate scanned by cameras that mail you your traffic ticket via robotic automation. Mandatory black boxes are being proposed for all new vehicles that record even more data. Our airfare travel and border crossings being recorded, yet illegal immigrants are allowed to run rampant in border regions causing escalating drug cartel murders and beheadings. This crisis is caused by us not being free to do what we want with our bodies, according to the federal government, even when states decide for themselves that it is, but this is beside the point. Biometric ID cards were first proposed to domesticate the illegals, and now they’re about to be forced upon us all as an unconstitutional National ID, not to mention vice president Joe Biden once promised Supreme Court justice Roberts that one day he’d have to rule on whether or not everyone would be forced to take an implantable microchip to track their whereabouts via satellite.
Even if you try to walk, your cell phone has tabs on you. Under Bush the precedent was set for us to be physically tracked via both triangulation and GPS and to be monitorable in real time via the microphone or camera. Obama’s Justice Dept. fought in court in 2010 to keep it active. Even if the phone is turned off, the feds and police can still activate the microphone. You literally have to remove the battery to stop it, while the more sophisticated phones like those made by Apple and Google have increasing methods to be able to study our behavior, and to condition us to actually enjoy being tracked 24/7. The Google Android phone even has a free app that ‘lets’ you take a snapshot of your eye’s iris so they can store it in their NSA databanks, while the army is developing high speed iris scanners that scan rapidly scan entire crowds of people.
Next we have DARPA’s Total Information Awareness program. TIA was to be about gathering and linking every scrap of data possible on people through massive artificially intelligent data mining supercomputers, and then to create complex maps of every possible connection people have to one another. Initially Congress ruled to shut it down as being unconstitutional, but it didn’t take long before it was parted out amongst the various agencies of interest, all connected under Homeland Security. After a few years mainstream media reports of it still being alive began to surface, and the new Democrat congress did nothing to stop it. Today Fusion Centers are being set up in every state using the TIA framework, manned by military, federal and state police officials, all under Homeland Security and endorsed by Obama.
All of these tracking systems are being integrated into a pervasive and ubiquitous 3 dimensional real time global surveillance system. Stopping global warming is stated in the first paragraph of the official description of NASA’s “Planetary Skin” global nervous system. As Hewlett Packard prepares the nerves for it via technologies such as “smart dust”, IBM is working with DARPA to build the “global brain’ AGI system to hook it into. The EU has the same idea as they’re building a global monitoring system being designed to also predict into the future. It’s no wonder there’s all this talk about a global government starting with deep USA & EU integration.
DARPA programs that are part of the AGI Panopticon include:
Mind’s Eye, Fine Detail Optical Surveillance (FDOS), Flow-based Information Theory Tracking (FITT), Persistent Stare Exploitation and Analysis System (PerSEAS), Exploitation of 3-D Data (E3D), Urban Reasoning and Geospatial Exploitation Technology (URGEnT), Standoff Precision ID in 3-D (SPI-3D), Persistent Operational Surface Surveillance and Engagement (POSSE), Autonomous Real-Time Ground Ubiquitous Surveillance – Infrared (ARGUS-IR), Cognitive Technology Threat Warning System (CT2WS), Fopen Reconnaissance, Surveillance, Tracking and Engagement Radar (FORESTER), NEOVISION2, NetTrack (NT), Harnessing Infrastructure for Building Reconnaissance (HIBR) and Urban Reasoning and Geospatial Exploitation Technology (URGENT).
The combination of all of these aspects would have this system able to see through trees, walls and deep into the ground; while having billions of sensors of all types and sizes spread out across the earth; in and on everything. And guess who gets to pay for it.
It’s worth noting that in 2003 9,000 people died in automotive accidents, three times how many died on 9/11, a single disaster which could have been prevented without any of these new Orwellian technologies, or a Police State.
The thing about 9/11 was that same day Bush said the terrorists attacked our freedoms, which was then parroted by media pundits and politicians for years. Yet the federal government has been the one attacking our freedoms increasingly and persistently, doing things to us that won’t stop Islamic terrorism, while doing things that is creating more terrorists globally, while not even doing things like securing our borders where terrorists could infiltrate our nation with supposed suitcase nukes. The “American” people are the ones being targeted across the board as terrorists, as enemies of the state. Guilty until proven innocent, and then still suspect needing to be monitored and tracked.
Protesting virtually any issue out there gets you added to terrorist watch lists. The Obama administration wants it so that if you’re put on a terrorist no fly list you can’t buy a firearm, without any conviction, while 6 years old kids have been rejected at airports for being on the list. So if you protest any issue you might not be able to travel or buy a gun. And if you do protest you may face brutal consequences. Police riot squads already have or are developing a daunting array of sophisticated “non-lethal” weapons including sonic cannons, microwave pain beams, optical ‘vomit beam’ guns, shotgun and grenade launcher fired tasers, “Shockwave” swarm fired taser batteries, crowd blaster tear gas launchers and discuss other sickening things like chemical neurowarfare for use against demonstrators. Odds of facing these weapons are higher than you’d think, as at protest after protest police agent provocateurs are busted vandalizing businesses and burning cop cars to justify beating and arresting crowds of protesters.
The growing trend for the past several decades has been the militarization of the police, turning them into a standing army. There is now even a NORTHCOM marine brigade has been tasked with Homeland Security objectives, including the stomping of protesters. All of this is a violation of the Posse Comitatus Act, passed in 1878 to prevent the federal government from using the military for law enforcement. Every year whichever president is in office signs new executive orders further consolidating the military takeover of the US, and Obama is no exception to this rule. We’re already under a state of de facto martial law, as we’ve been under a state of national emergency since before 1976, and these executive orders are always written under the context of a national emergency.
Laws are constantly introduced and even passed giving the military and federal government the ‘legal right’ to detain us in secret, against the foundational concept of Habeas Corpus, with no legal representation, indefinitely, where we can be brutally tortured and even ‘disappeared’ for ever. Whether or not you think that would ever happen is irrelevant, as this is already the case. Ask yourself why they’d install such measures, and ask yourself why they’d have hundreds of designated civilian internment FEMA / Halliburtan / military camps (with barbwire pointing inwards) for detainment and civilian labor.
With all of the police and the half a trillion dollar plus budget military, ask yourself why Obama has said repeatedly that he intends to set up a civilian national security “just as large, just as well funded as the military”, that includes a mandatory draft and youth snitch brigades. Ask yourself why Homeland Security is training the Boy Scouts in SWAT team gear and tactics, on mock missions to subdue an Iraq War veterans. Ask yourself why the military is constantly setting up checkpoints and patrol streets in cities across the US. Ask yourself why the military runs drills in US cities, that include foreign troops, doing mock roundups of groups of US citizens. Ask yourself why FEMA has a system of over 50,000 religious clergy ready to help round up guns, and to snitch on potential freedom fighters that might go to their local religious leaders for rest.
Ask yourself what these things have to do with terrorism, when the policies and actions of the federal government are what is pissing everyone off domestically and around the world. Ask yourself why each new administration is more secretive than their predecessors, with Obama’s being worse than Bush’s even after all the “change” he campaigned on. Ask yourself why the military is openly and deliberately training kids to be killers via video games, and why they’re making the interfaces of military equipment based on games, and why they’re calling for an all drone army. Ask yourself why the privately owned Federal Reserve bank has been handed more power over the US government and economy, with even less congressional oversight, in response to being responsible for setting the stage for the economic meltdown. Considering that the Internet is our last bastion of freedom, ask yourself why Obama has been given the power to shut it down during an emergency, while we’re under a constant state of emergency. Ask yourself why we’re being sickened by countless softkill weapons, and denied recent safe cancer cures.
There is still hope, but time is short. We have a way to slow down the growing AGI, using simple Automated Untelligence software tools that can be fun to use. For the political system, we have a unifying concept to pull the funding out from underneath the criminally corrupt Congress, via Consensual Taxation only, marginalizing their powers over us and to do these things that are bent on power instead of the human betterment their claimed to be. The future is now. Fight for what you want it to become, because the dystopian system being set up is already fighting you.
The following are some snippets from the most recent issue of the International Forecaster. For the full 31 page issue, please see subscription information below.
The world is awash in dollars and that is being reflected in the USDX, which are six major currencies versus the dollar. The loss of value is being loudly trumpeted as the IMF says a replacement must be found. This is the same IMF that has been foisting non-gold backed SDRs on us since 1969. Every time they have tried this it has been a failure. We can give the Illuminists an ‘A’ for effort, but what they do not get is that the professionals and investors see right through it. Another batch of fiat currency is not going to solve the world’s currency crisis, which can only be saved by gold backing. Needless to say, the mainstream media will never talk about this in realistic terms, because the elitists control them. The denigration of currencies versus gold and silver are advancing apace, as the elitists day after day try to suppress gold and silver prices.
The major media is as complacent as ever because they are totally controlled. It is not ignorance or incompetence. It is control. The media tells us the stock market is headed higher, but fails to tell us why. The reason is manipulation by the US government, and those who control it, and funds swamping the market via QE2. This is an economy where few jobs are being created, unemployment remains steady and we are told that a rising stock market means recovery, which is far from the truth. Propaganda flourishes as well as physiological warfare. There is no truth for the American people and the people of the world, it is all controlled and capsulated for consumption and control. There is no real recovery; it is all smoke and mirrors to mislead the public. Government and the media declare there is no inflation, but yet it abounds. This is the same media that has ignored the climb in gold and silver prices for 11 years. They have few explanations as to why gold and silver prices are rising. It is because the value of fiat currencies are falling versus gold and silver, but that is not the explanation we hear. We are told a number of absurd falsities.
Gold and silver are just now beginning to break out of government instigated doldrums, which has been government induced by those who own the Fed. None of the old tricks and nostrums is working anymore, so new tactics are being taken. You have seen ongoing attacks on gold and silver that has been going on since 1988, and in the last 15 years they have been relentless. As of late the theme is destroy the gold and silver shares to make people believe that there is little value there, to shake novices out of their positions. The psywarfare plan is to force down gold and silver share prices and gold in order to destroy silver prices so that JPM and HSBC can cover their shorts. It hasn’t worked and won’t work. Needless to say, we get the usual from CNBC, CNN, MSNBC and Fox. Is it a bubble or a craze? Again, what else would you expect from a media which is usually wrong.
The debt and inflation will become more terse as we struggle forward. Government knows it has to cut Social Security, Medicaid and Medicare, screwing the participants and better enabling government to control and reduce these benefits. Allowing government to renege over and over again does not instill confidence in its citizens. There are mammoth cuts coming, but the military industrial complex will experience few. This is how the elitists keep their empire by threat of force. Just look around you and look at the Patriot Act and Homeland Security or the new Gestapo the FBI. Yes readers, you already live in a police state.
As Americans overlook these developments and the fact that anyone who criticizes government is a terrorist, price inflation is destroying their purchasing power and it’s being done deliberately, as a result of saving a broken banking system that only catered to the wealthy and connected. Loans are available, but generally only to AAA corporations and fellow elitists, as interest rates begin their devastating rise into the future. That needless to say will be accompanied by a falling dollar and higher gold and silver prices. Many other countries have duplicated these events, so not only will the US dollar fall in value, but also so will the currencies of most every other country versus one another and particularly versus gold and silver. In case you missed it, or forgot, versus nine major currencies over the past 10 years on average gold has appreciated 15-1/4% annually and silver 20-3/8% annually, thus, these facts are nothing new. They have just been hidden from you. As a result of the loss in purchasing power and ever building debt we have seen demonstrations and riots throughout Europe for the past two years. That has been followed for the same reasons, plus price inflation, in the Middle East with the overthrow of the governments of Tunisia and Egypt. Several more monarchies and dictatorships are on the verge of falling as well. In the US the attempt to radically change retirement benefits and unions has led to demonstrations in Wisconsin, Indiana and Ohio. We believe in time as unemployment rises with prices and there is no economic recovery that demonstrations will increase and they could, as they have elsewhere, turn violent. If police in the US fire on civilians or beat them into submission there will be retaliation and law enforcement will get decimated.
There is absolutely no way the dollar and other currencies can be saved. That is why the prices of gold and silver move relentlessly upward. There already is waning confidence in the dollar and many other currencies, and that is why the USDX, the dollar index, as a yardstick, is inferior to measuring all currencies versus gold and silver. You may not realize it now, but you are living through the collapse of fiat money systems. The future of monetary and fiscal matters will take many twists and turns, some good, some bad. It is far too early to make solid predictions on what routes will be taken. At this juncture it is easy to see where we are headed, but the future is more difficult. It could be inflation, hyperinflation, deflationary depression and another contrived war to distract people from the more important issues of the economy, finance and economic survival. In the meantime in reaction to such events gold could go to $5,000 or $10,000 and silver $100 to $500, as the flight to quality becomes a stampede.
Our studies and intelligence tells us that the elitists running the show deliberately planned a collapse so they can form a world government. For them everything is on the line. If they lose they’ll lose everything. If we lose the same could be true. We are not going to lose, because to many people worldwide already know what they are up too and that what we are experiencing was planned that way. Why do you think QE1 financial sectors were saved in the US and Europe and in QE2 the US government was bailed out. It is very obvious to thinking people as to what is taking place. The edifice that underlies elitist power has been bolstered as the US and European economics are being allowed to fail. Tough decisions will have to be made to save the dollar and the economy and that is not going to happen because those running the show behind the scenes do not want that to happen. The route being presently taken is that of the Fed funding all Treasury and Agency needs including deficit spending. In such a scenario gold and silver prices have no limits to the upside. It could also be that the majority of your gold and silver holdings may never be sold due to the ongoing turmoil the world may be buried in.
The stock market in Dow terms is about 12,400 due to trillions of dollars being poured into the economy via the Fed and QE1 and QE2 and via the manipulation of “The President’s Working Group on Financial Markets.” The insiders know what is going on but investors and the public do not have a clue. How is it that denizens of Wall Street get richer and the poor get poorer? It is because Wall Street and banking control the government. The question arises is the market overpriced? Of course it is, but hundreds of billions of dollars are available to Wall Street and banks to speculate in their rigged game. Can you imagine that it is possible for several banks and brokerage houses every day for months to have no losing trading days? Of course that is not normally possible. That can only happen when they create the inside information. They are slaughtering the average investor. Will the market collapse again? Of course it will, but the timing is very difficult. Perhaps if there is an announcement that QE2 is over and there will be no QE3, maybe major unrest in the Middle East will cause a correction, or perhaps a realization that there will be no further recovery, or perhaps we’ll see demonstrations in the US similar to those in the Middle East? After adding tax-pork legislation of $862 billion last year the administration is asking for $200 billion more. What the Fed has done with zero interest rates and quantitative easing at least temporarily is put a floor under the market. Eventually that floor will crumble as real interest rates climb further and perhaps QE comes to an end. Needless to say, were that to happen there would be total collapse. The US and for that matter, European economies cannot survive without major stimulus. In Europe the financially healthy nations are supplying $1 trillion to six poorer nations knowing full well $3 to $5 trillion is needed. German Chancellor Ms. Merkel says Germany will hold the euro together. Last week in elections in the Hamburg region the voters sent her a warning by crushing CDU candidates. If the CDU wants to be thrown out of office they will continue to advocate more support for sick members of the euro zone. We think the support by Germany is at an end and that means it is only a matter of time before the euro is history. In this regard the G-20 meeting went nowhere, as sick nations demanded that the solvent nations stop exporting so much. One asks where does it end.
Eventually the Dow will fall. When that will begin we do not know, but if it follows history it should fall to 6,650 and then to? Dow 3,200. It could fall lower, but 3,200 is the goal. The damage wreaked on the economy by deficit spending and QE will take years to correct. The longer the upside continues on the Dow the higher gold is going to go because in terms of gold the US dollar and other currencies will continue to fall. That is why the US Treasury and the Fed and other central bans want so desperately to stop gold and silver from going higher, which gets more difficult with each and every day.
That brings us to the performance of gold and silver shares, which have been under attack by government consistently for the past 15 years. You have major shares prices reflecting in many instances reserves at $300 an ounce or at 25% of gold market prices. Many of these operating companies are reporting profit increases of 20% to 40%. We have been involved in mining shares for 51 years and those who try to put a P/E ratio on producing mines are pursuing a futile quest. The reason is the enormous leverage in these shares that you are now seeing. In 1980 producers saw P/E’s of 350 times earnings. Gold is the perfect hedge against the collapse in value of other assets, currencies and inflation. For 6,000 years it has had no peers. Silver runs a close second as a store of value. Gold and silver are a reflection of the real value of currencies and are the most stable assets in the world. The proof of the dominance of gold and silver over the past ten years has been performance. Versus nine major currencies the average currency has lost 15-1/4% annually versus gold and 20-3/8% versus silver. There have been no assets that can come close to matching that consistent return and the trend is still upward. We wonder why CNBC, CNN and Bloomberg don’t site these statistics on their programs? You all know why, it is because the elitists behind the scenes own the media. So as a result you get totally managed and slanted news. There is never dissension and truth.
We have talked about an eventual market correction. We have just seen over the past six months the breaking of the bond market bubble and real estate continues its downward slide. That leaves gold, silver and commodities as the select investments.
In recent years real estate has proven to be a poor hedge versus inflation, as it still resumes its downward journey. It has become illiquid at market prices and can only be liquidated at severely reduced prices. Over the next few years massive inventory overhang will take prices lower and then there will be years of stagnation. That doesn’t sound like a very good investment to us.
We just saw the 10-year note fall from a yield of 2.20% to its current yield of 2.60%. We believe rates over the next two years could reach 5% to 5-1/2%. If we are correct that means 30-year fixed rate mortgagees could move to 6-1/2% to 7%. It also translates into large bond losses. The biggest question is will there be a QE3 and hyperinflation? We do not know for sure, but all the signs point in that direction. That means as inflation rises so do gold and silver related assets. Will we then see a flight to quality to gold and silver? Yes, we will. They will be the only game in town. We have been in an inflationary depression for two years. Next is higher inflation, probably hyperinflation and then deflationary depression. In all these environments gold and silver related assets will be the only place to be. These are the truthful facts of life today and a clear snapshot of where we are headed. Get your house in order, because if you do not you won’t like the consequences.

Kurt Nimmo: So much for all her talk about the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
You were lied to America.
I told you this before the election. That you were snookered, lied to, and bamboozled. That you would not get either real fiscal accountability or liberty and The Rule of Law out of The Tea Party.
Many said I was full of crap.
Cross-referencing the list at MSNBC and the outcome of the vote, the following is a list of Tea Party-backed candidates voting for the bill (Patriot Act reauthorization):
Tim Griffin (AR-2), Paul Gosar (AZ-1), Steve Southerland (FL-2), Allen West (FL-22), Sandy Adams (FL-24), Bob Dold (IL-10), Adam Kinzinger (IL-11), Marlin Stutzman (IN-3), Todd Young (IN-9), Jeff Landry (LA-3), Dan Benishek (MI-1), Tim Walberg (MI-7), Michelle Bachmann (MN-6), Vicky Hartzler (MO-4), Renee Ellmers (NC-2), Frank Guinta (NH-1), Joe Heck (NV-3), Michael Grimm (NY-13), Steven Chabot (OH-1), Bill Johnson (OH-6), Steve Stivers (OH-15), Jim Renacci (OH-16), Tim Scott (SC-1), Jeff Duncan (SC-3), Trey Gowdy (SC-4), Mick Mulvaney (SC-5), Scott DesJarlais (TN-4), Bill Flores (TX-17), H. Morgan Griffith (VA-9), Sean Duffy (WI-7), Reid Ribble (WI-8), David McKinley (WV-1)
That’s thirty-one out of forty voting for the bill (77.5%), eight voting against, and one no-vote. Despite the eight nay votes, Tea Party-backed candidates overwhelmingly supported an extension of the PATRIOT Act.
Note that the list include the "beloved" Alan West and Michelle Bachmanm.
Lying sacks of crap, all of them above, exactly as expected and as I predicted before the election.
Every one of these buttclowns would have been swimming in Boston Harbor – with the tea – were they alive at the time, having been (correctly) branded as British spies.
Funny how liberty, fiscal responsibility and accountability for outright fraud, the actual foundations that led to the movement, were stripped away and are now ignored not only by the elected representatives but by the electorate itself.
Instead we have political figures telling us how wonderful "Rethuglicanism" is – you know, things like warrant-less searches without the right of review or even notification of the target, a pointed refusal to prosecute even admitted scams during the bubble years and a federal budget that cannot be balanced even if every program save five – Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Unemployment and other Welfare are eliminated. That’s right – cut the rest, including defense, to zero, down to the level of the guy sweeping Obama’s office floor, and we still cannot balance the Federal budget. Where is the Tea Party on these issues – the issues that they claimed were the reasons we should vote for them?
Tea Party my ass.

The Patriot Act was moved to the floor under suspension of the rules a provision that requires two-thirds majority (290 votes) to pass and is often used for noncontroversial legislation. After holding the vote open well past the 15-minute window, it failed 277 to 148 with five Republicans and four Democrats not voting.
Republican leaders will bring the bill back to the floor under a rule, where it will almost certainly secure the 218-vote threshold.
Twenty-six Republicans voted against the Patriot Act extension, but only eight were freshmen Reps. Justin Amash (Mich.), Mike Fitzpatrick (Pa.), Chris Gibson (N.Y.), Randy Hultgren (Ill.), Raul Labrador (Idaho), Bobby Schilling (Ill.), Dave Schweikert (Ariz.) and Rob Woodall (Ga.).
Of those eight freshmen, it appears that all were Tea Party-supported candidates. It’s encouraging to see these officials stick to their professed ideals. I hope that this is a continuing phenomenon. According to this article at MSNBC, though, at least forty house seats went to
Tea Party-backed candidates. Cross-referencing the list at MSNBC and the outcome of the vote, the following is a list of Tea Party-backed candidates voting for the bill:

As the Republicans secretly push for a permanent extension to the Patriot Act in Congress this month, it’s important to remind Americans what that means. After 9/11, it was easy for the federal government to define black and white–us vs. them. They did this using the rhetoric the terrorists win if we change our way of life.
What happened afterwards tells me the terrorists won. Americans began losing their Constitutional rights as both Republicans and Democrats began growing the Department of Homeland Security, which began killing more of your Constitutional rights. These are the same nice people taking naked scans of you at the airports and then groping your private parts if you don’t comply.
After 9/11, numerous reports came out from both states and the federal government to define who the terrorist are. I think Cato’s David Rittgers does a good job of reminding Americans who the terrorists are as Republicans push to extend the Patriot Act which led to these violation of rights and the verbiage in many of these reports like Missouri’s MIAC report.
This follows a long line of fusion center and DHS reports labeling broad swaths of the public as a threat to national security. The North Texas Fusion System labeled Muslim lobbyists as a potential threat; a DHS analyst in Wisconsin thought both pro- and anti-abortion activists were worrisome; a Pennsylvania homeland security contractor watched environmental activists, Tea Party groups, and a Second Amendment rally; the Maryland State Police put anti-death penalty and anti-war activists in a federal terrorism database; a fusion center in Missouri thought that all third-party voters and Ron Paul supporters were a threat; and the Department of Homeland Security described half of the American political spectrum as “right wing extremists.”
In other words, all Americans are terrorists. Of course, they are coming after your rights.
