Will the world keep financing the American Federal Empire?

During the last six months or so, I catch the CNBC International reports every morning while getting ready for work. The show covers the European and Asian stock exchanges in great detail and I have learned quite a bit about globalism and its’ relationship to the New (One) World Order. I have discovered that the world is already broken up into economic zones loosely. Probably not as united as the NWO would like it, but its’ roots are firmly in place.

With that in mind, finally a little over 60% of the public in the United States are aware of  the nations’ precarious economic position, and their own financial place in the global scheme of things.

And they are finally scared. Not only are they scared, they are coming to the realization that there is little they can do about it. Some are pinning their hopes on the upcoming Presidential Elections, but as the past year has shown, both major political parties are in the back pocket of the Globalists/Militarists. If there are those of you reading this who currently still believe the US is a Democratic Republic, I put this question to you; “Has the Congress performed the wishes mandated them by the 2006 Congressional Elections?” No? I thought not.

So obvious to me anyway, politicians will do little to change the status quo. Why should they? They gain mightily by serving and preserving the military-industrial-congressional-complex. Iraq War II has been a bonanza to the global militarists and their sycophants. But this was done with the blessings of the NWO and its present useful tools, the neocons and the private Federal Reserve Banks. Without globalist(globalism) financing, the continuing Iraqi Occupation would not be possible according to Paul Craig Roberts:

 In the 21st century, the US economy has been driven by consumers going deeper in debt. Consumption fueled by increases in indebtedness received its greatest boost from Fed chairman Alan Greenspan’s low interest rate policy. Greenspan covered up the adverse effects of offshoring on the US economy by engineering a housing boom. The boom created employment in construction and financial firms and pushed up home prices, thus creating equity for consumers to spend to keep consumer demand growing.

This source of US economic growth is exhausted and imploding. The full consequences of the housing bust remain to be realized. American consumers lack discretionary income and can pay higher taxes only by reducing their consumption. The service industries, which have provided the only source of new jobs in the 21st century, are already experiencing falling demand. A tax increase would cause widespread distress.

As John Maynard Keynes and his followers made clear, a tax increase on a recessionary economy is a recipe for falling tax revenues as well as economic hardship.

Superpower America is a ship of fools in denial of their plight. While offshoring kills American economic prospects, “free market economists” sing its praises. While war imposes enormous costs on a bankrupt country, neoconservatives call for more war, and Republicans and Democrats appropriate war funds which can only be obtained by borrowing abroad.

By focusing America on war in the Middle East, the purpose of which is to guarantee Israel’s territorial expansion, the executive and legislative branches, along with the media, have let slip the last opportunities the US had to put its financial house in order. We have arrived at the point where it is no longer bold to say that nothing now can be done. Unless the rest of the world decides to underwrite our economic rescue, the chips will fall where they may.

Of course the main NWO plan involves more than the expansion of Eretz Israel. In the elites view, the serfs of the world are to be taxed and cannon-fodder, Israel’s included. That’s for a later discussion though.

Paul Craig Roberts was a St. Ronnie Raygun follower and still touts the Sainted One as a True Conservative. We all know that Ronnie was a neocon tool, even if he himself believed otherwise. Roberts has tried to redeem himself the past few years by recognizing that the present regime is a faux conservative imposter and has worked tirelessly to expose them. Even while he has come to see that “deficits do matter”, he has not admitted his own “Reagonomics” started this slippery slope to begin with! Oh well, better late than never.

The globalists are determined to control the American economic landing into a recession because while fueled by debt, the American Economy is still the world’s largest and the prime mover of globalism. If the US crashes too hard, so will others, and the NWO doesn’t want the global network to collapse too quickly. They still need serfs who are employed to pay taxes that support their various agendas.

You wouldn’t want them to dirty their dainty paws, would you?

Congressional Vigilantes

From TruthNews.us :

“The view that 9/11 has “changed everything” is unfortunately all too true. It has unleashed American paranoia, institutionalized mistrust of foreigners, and created a fantasy universe in which a US beset by enemies must do anything and everything to counter the alien threat. If it were a sane world, it would be difficult to imagine why anyone would believe that a Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act is even necessary. The United States has spent hundreds of billions of dollars in strengthening law enforcement and intelligence capabilities against terrorists and has every tool imaginable to investigate and make arrests. It has created a whole new bloated and dysfunctional branch of government in the Department of Homeland Security. What is not needed is groups of congressionally empowered vigilantes roaming the country at will looking for “homegrown terrorism”

This act will truly spell the end of the American Republic and announce to the whole world the American Federal Empire is in fact a reality.

The Act states; “…the United States will soon have to deal with home grown terrorists and that something must be done to anticipate and neutralize the problem. The act deals with the issue through the creation of a congressional commission that will be empowered to hold hearings, conduct investigations, and designate various groups as “homegrown terrorists.” The commission will be tasked to propose new legislation that will enable the government to take punitive action against both the groups and the individuals who are affiliated with them.”

The Act was proposed by Democrat Jane Harmon of California and passed in the House October 24th by the votes of 405 to 6. That’s quite the landslide. And guess who gets to approve it next? Joe”mentum” Lieberman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee. How convenient. Then the bill gets final Senate approval. It might even be approved by now.

The result will be a roving band of congressional commission members traveling across the country, at tax-payer expense of course, determining what groups are terrorists, or who isn’t. Great. Of course there’s no oversight committee assigned to track these people, so if you piss the government off at any time in the future, the committee puts you into the “homegrown terrorist” category. Surprise, surprise, surprise.

This is the modern version of the Spanish Inquisition, which really wasn’t a religious pogrom, but a political one (but the Catholic Church wholeheartedly supported the effort because it targeted Muslims and Jews). Again, history repeats itself because the targets are primarily, you guessed it, Muslims. But anyone who gets in the way will find themselves in one of the 39 Halliburton camps or any of the 130 underground facilities out West. Nobody will be left out.

Somewhere in a hellish parallel universe Mussolini is chuckling to himself.

Politics ‘stifling $100 laptop’

From BBC News :

A lack of “big thinking” by politicians has stifled a scheme to distribute laptops to children in the developing world, a spokesman has said.

Walter Bender of One Laptop per Child (OLPC) said politicians were unwilling to commit because “change equals risk”.

But, he said, there needed to be a “dramatic change” because education in many countries was “failing” children.

In an interview with the BBC, Nigeria’s education minister questioned the need for laptops in poorly equipped schools.

Dr Igwe Aja-Nwachuku said: “What is the sense of introducing One Laptop per Child when they don’t have seats to sit down and learn; when they don’t have uniforms to go to school in, where they don’t have facilities?”

“We are more interested in laying a very solid foundation for quality education which will be efficient, effective, accessible and affordable.”

The previous government of Nigeria had committed to buying one million laptops.

When I first heard about this plan, I thought; “What a good way to educate poor children, especially in areas that had easy broadband access.”

But apparently, some politicians, mainly the ones in the countries that need these laptops the most, don’t like this idea. Why?

Sure, these kids need schools too, but in this age of the ‘virtual classroom’, isn’t that a better plan than no school at all?

IMHO, there’s something more here than the supposed desire to build brick and mortar schoolrooms, and not relying on computers totally.

I’m reminded of the saying by Thomas Jefferson; “If we’re going to have a successful democratic society, we have to have a well educated and healthy citizenry”.

These aren’t principles the worlds’ elites obviously believe in. 

Economics NWO Style: Mission Almost Accomplished In USA

From myway.com:

The calculus of living paycheck to paycheck in America is getting harder. What used to last four days might last half that long now. Pay the gas bill, but skip breakfast. Eat less for lunch so the kids can have a healthy dinner.

Across the nation, Americans are increasingly unable to stretch their dollars to the next payday as they juggle higher rent, food and energy bills. It’s starting to affect middle-income working families as well as the poor, and has reached the point of affecting day-to-day calculations of merchants like Wal-Mart Stores Inc. (WMT) (WMT), 7-Eleven Inc. and Family Dollar Stores Inc. (FDO) (FDO)

Food pantries, which distribute foodstuffs to the needy, are reporting severe shortages and reduced government funding at the very time that they are seeing a surge of new people seeking their help.

While economists debate whether the country is headed for a recession, some say the financial stress is already the worst since the last downturn at the start of this decade.

From Family Dollar to Wal-Mart, merchants have adjusted their product mix and pricing accordingly. Sales data show a marked and more prolonged drop in spending in the days before shoppers get their paychecks, when they buy only the barest essentials before splurging around payday.

“It’s pretty pronounced,” said Kiley Rawlins, a spokeswoman at Family Dollar. “It seems like to us, customers are running out of food products, paper towels sooner in the month.”

Wal-Mart, the world’s largest retailer, said the imbalance in spending before and after payday in July was the biggest it has ever seen, though the drop-off wasn’t as steep in August.

And 7-Eleven says its grocery sales have jumped 12-13 percent over the past year, compared with only slight increases for non-necessities like gloves and toys. Shoppers can’t afford to load up at the supermarket and are going to the most convenient places to buy emergency food items like milk and eggs.

“It even costs more to get the basics like soap and laundry detergent,” said Michelle Grassia, who lives with her husband and three teenage children in the Bedford-Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn, N.Y.

Her husband’s check from his job at a grocery store used to last four days. “Now, it lasts only two,” she said.

To make up the difference, Grassia buys one gallon of milk a week instead of three. She sometimes skips breakfast and lunch to make sure there’s enough food for her children. She cooks with a hot plate because gas is too expensive. And she depends more than ever on the bags of free vegetables and powdered milk from a local food pantry.

I know this situation upclose and personal. There have been times, especially when being on disability on and off from heart surgeries and recovering from epileptic seizures in recent years. In the good ol’ USA anymore when counties are cutting back on services to the poor, companies moving overseas to pay slave wages and remaining companies telling employees “take what we pay ya, or hit the streets” ( except for executives of course), living paycheck to paycheck is definitely a challenge. The working poor and lower-middle class in this country aren’t running an increasing debt load just to buy extra “goodies” like stereos, HDTVs, computers and iPods. They’re running a debt just to pay the bills and eat. And I’m not even touching on expenses like car repairs, car insurance or any of that sh*t.

The proof is in the pudding of this article. Bu$hco has almost singlehandedly destroyed the greatest republic in Western History in just seven short years. Once this nation is destroyed economically, the path will be cleared for the neoliberal agenda of creation of the North American Union.

Thus the next phase of the NWO plan of Global Dominance will be complete.

De-Skilling America’s Labor Force

From Counter Punch :

If there were any lingering doubts about Corporate America’s contempt for working men and women, the on-going attempt to replace people with robots should put those doubts to rest. Clearly, a company that prefers a “mechanical man” to a functioning human being is trying to tell us something.

A recent announcement by Big Three automakers that they plan to invest a billion dollars over the next decade in the development of robotics reminded me of a remark made by an HR representative of the Kimberly-Clark Corporation, some years ago.

Off-handedly, he suggested that we might be surprised at what kind of workforce would, hypothetically, “scare” a management team. For example, it wouldn’t be a lazy, belligerent or even militantly pro-union workforce. Those types, he assured us, could be “fixed” (his term). No, the scariest workforce would be a conspicuously talented one.

Why? Because talent is expensive. Talent is leverage. And while there is obviously a profound upside to having valuable workers, there is, paradoxically, a built-in downside: Management is now dependent upon a variable it can’t control.

Typically, people with “careers” are interested in advancement, recognition, self-realization, etc. Ambition is recognized as a virtue and is encouraged. Conversely, people with “jobs” tend to focus on wages and benefits. But because wages and benefits constitute overhead, ambition among the “gravy-and-french fry crowd” (witty management-speak) is not only discouraged, it often needs to be “fixed.”

Accordingly, management has embraced a strategy called “de-skilling,” the systematic dumbing-down of jobs into easily mastered tasks. De-skilling is to virtuosity what Agent Orange is to foliage. While its primary goal is to improve efficiency through standardization, it’s also a means of “neutralizing” a workforce.

I’ve witnessed this myself up close and personal. This is not exclusive in the auto industry, this is the mantra of Corporate America. Period.

The author makes a point that the goal of corporatocracy is to dumb down all labor and to automate whenever possible, to McDonaldize what’s left of America’s manufacturing base. I remember hearing a news item back in 2005 where economists in Bu$hco’s employ wanted to include “hamburger making” at fast food restaurants in the “manufactured goods” category of the quarterly GDP reports. I don’t recall if they got their way or not, it was hushed up after that.

Globalization is sweeping through the planet like wild-fire, consuming nations and leaving smoldering husks in their wake. The World Bank, Federal Reserve and the IMF are reaping more manna than any tyranny in the history (in this cycle) of the world.

What are they going to do when the victim is totally bled out?

Sunday Op-Ed: Late Friday Edition: Kissinger Admits Iran Attack Is About Oil

“So what?, we need the oil,” sneer deluded Neo-Cons as oil prices explode due to orchestrated artificial scarcity

In a new op-ed, Bilderberg luminary Henry Kissinger admits that U.S. hostility against Iran is not about the threat of nuclear proliferation, but as part of a larger agenda to seize Iranian oil supplies. But the true meaning behind this is lost on Neo-Cons, who are still deluded into thinking that Americans benefit from the imperial looting of natural resources in the middle east.

In a Washington Post op-ed, Former US Secretary of State Kissinger comes clean on the true motives behind the planned military assault on Iran.

“An Iran that practices subversion and seeks regional hegemony – which appears to be the current trend – must be faced with lines it will not be permitted to cross. The industrial nations cannot accept radical forces dominating a region on which their economies depend,” writes Kissinger.

As blogger Robert Weissman points out, the “legitimate aspirations” that Kissinger affords Iran later in the piece “do not include control over the oil that the United States and other industrial countries need.”

Naomi Klein – The Shock Doctrine

Naomi Klein, a Canadian journalist and activist, spoke February 22, 2007 about her new book, The Shock Doctrine before an audience at the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives. In that speech she describes how world crisis, either real or fabricated, are used by the IMF (International Monetary Fund) and the World Bank to push through neo-liberal economic policies in countries around the world.

Ahh yes, our old dear tools of the NWO, the World Banksters my friend Uber Highwayman likes to call them are getting some well deserved attention in some circles now. Better late than never I suppose. Of course in their supreme hubris, the world elitist criminals who actually control the major governments on the planet believe that there’s nothing that can stop them from instituting their globalist enslavement policies and bleeding the world dry like the vampire Lestat would his victims after a hundred year nap. But Naomi gives some pretty good examples of certain governments fighting back such as Venezuela and Bolivia, so the NWO doesn’t have it all in the bag yet like they think they do.

The lecture comes in six parts on YouTube, but the meat of it starts at Part III, so I’ll post Parts III to VI. If anyone wants to see the first two parts in order to get some continuity, click here.

And most of all, thank you to Mirth of Liberally Mirth, who has turned into quite the warrior against the NWO, for bringing this info to my attention. Keep on keepin’ on Mirthy One!
