Four Years Ago This Week- 2007

A lot of shit can happen to a guy during a four year time frame.

Four years ago this week, I "retired" from my job as Chief of Police in Moonbat Valley. I was 46. I had been planning a dream trip. Two months on my motorcycle- traveling all over the United States. I was burnt out and depressed, my health was shaky at best. Like most of the people in this country, I didn't have a clue about a lot of shit. Like the "Federal Reserve", our fiat currency, the national debt, and the absolute greed and control of our banking masters.

In fact, much like those idiot commenters on Ace of Spades HQ, I still believed that we had a two party political system. I thought voting for a third party "wasted" my vote. I am embarrassed to admit that now. I had no idea what "money" was, where it came from, or that the Federal Reserve Bank is a private corporation brought about by a conspiracy of international bankers at Jekyll Island in the early 20th century. People think you are nuts when you tell them that. Most folks believe the Federal Reserve is owned and operated by the Federal Government. For those of you who still believe that...here is one simple question. If the Federal Reserve Bank is operated by the Federal Government...how come we can't see it's budget or conduct an audit? In fact, we can't even pass a bill requesting an audit of the Federal Reserve. Does that sound like a transparent arm of government to you?

I love horse racing and motorcycles. I traveled to places like Canterbury, Saratoga, Charlestown, the Fairgrounds. Some days, I would take a wrong turn on my motorcycle and just keep going. That happened in Georgia. On the back of a bike, I had time to think. No phones, no distractions. I desperately wanted to re-invent myself. My life was a mess and I couldn't figure out why. Really. I had a lot of work to do emotionally and as I glance back- it would be another year before the work that I did would start to pay off.

That was the summer of 2008. Our country was about to elect a guy none of us had ever heard of. Who financed this guy? The stock market was diving. Bush and his Republican conspirators were about to plunder the country. The new guy would too. Obama would give every white collar criminal in America- a get out of jail free card. It makes sense. They knew what they did was illegal. The bankers buy anything and everything. They even bought a President.

When you live and work in a small town for 25 years, a town full of elite people and working stiffs- you learn something about life from the various levels of financial and intellectual strata. If Moonbat Valley wasn't anything- it certainly was diverse. I have this crazy friend, I'd call him a constitutionalist but that doesn't accurately describe him. He is a historian. He knows real history- not the garbage they teach you in government school. He knows the stuff the government doesn't want you to know and doesn't teach. Like the real truth about the Federal Reserve. I use to think he was a nutter.

I am blessed. I have the time to read, to write, and to learn. For so many years- I was so distracted with family, job worries, that there was simply no time to discover the truth. I had been indoctrinated with the same God and country bullshit that so many of us get. I shudder to think that our young men and women die for oil and wealth. Wars financed by the FED. Solemn ceremonial burials with honor guards, bagpipes, 21 gun salutes, folded flags handed to grieving widows. All of that- for all of them.

It's a curious thing. The people who die fighting don't have much too lose. The people with everything to lose- don't die fighting. The trick is getting someone else to do your fighting for you. Then call them patriots.

It's been a fascinating journey... these past 4 years. A few weeks ago, I cracked 100,000 page views and I want to thank those people who stop by. I am blessed that I have the time to read hundreds of articles a week and cherry pick those that I find fascinating or well written. The country is starting to wake up. I can see it and I have been reading it. There is real cause for hope. Perhaps the last 4 years has had a profound impact on a helluva lot more people than I thought. Maybe, like Jim at Conservatives on Fire says, there is still time. I hope so. We are too blessed to let this train wreck of a government steal the brightest beacon in the world.

The Government Stole Your Money

Like many Americans, I once thought that Social Security was some separate trust fund that was immune from political raids. A few years ago, a government economist assured me that there was absolutely nothing set aside in Social Security. It had been borrowed long ago- stolen. Replaced by IOU's.

Unbelievably, the vast majority of people don't know this. This article will help you understand. http://blogs.forbes.com/merrillmatthews/2011/07/13/what-happened-to-the-2-6-trillion-social-security-trust-fund/

Precision Speech

Dennis Kucinich precisely sums up what I have been yakking about for 3 years...Odd that a moonbat would figure this out. Just when you think you've seen everything, you see this.


As Dennis Kucinich writes today:
We have to realize what this country's economy has become. Our monetary policy, through the Federal Reserve Act of 1913, privatized the money supply, gathers the wealth, puts it in the hands of the few while the Federal Reserve can create money out of nothing, give it to banks to park at the Fed while our small businesses are starving for capital.

Mark my words -- Wall Street cashes in whether we have a default or not. And the same type of thinking that created billions in bailouts for Wall Street and more than $1 trillion in giveaways by the Federal Reserve today leaves 26 million Americans either underemployed or unemployed. And nine out of ten Americans over the age of 65 are facing cuts in their Social Security in order to pay for a debt which grew from tax cuts for the rich and for endless wars.

There is a massive transfer of wealth from the American people to the hands of a few and it's going on right now as America’s eyes are misdirected to the political theater of these histrionic debt negotiations, threats to shut down the government, and willingness to make the most Americans pay dearly for debts they did not create.

These are symptoms of a government which has lost its way, and they are a challenge to the legitimacy of the two-party system.

Obama Throws Conniption Fit, Acts Like Spoiled Brat

President Screw Off at loggerheads with Eric Cantor. Storms out. This reminds me of that kid in the store who screams when he doesn't get what he wants. With Obama, when he doesn't get what he wants, it's always personal. One term and done. Let us pray.

Wow! This Guy Is Looking for Another 20% Decline in Housing

I am kind of happy I paid what I did for my house earlier this year. How'd you like to buy a million dollar home and get a 200k haircut?

I had a low down payment so I guess I could just walk away like everyone else has had to do in this wonderful recovery we are all enjoying.

Check out what this guy has to say...

One Guy Tells The Truth...

and feeds Bernanke his lunch. If gold isn't money Ben, why are all of the world's central banks buying and hoarding gold? Seems odd, doesn't it?

This is the truthful guy that gets smeared from both the R and the L. Unelectable.

Precious Metals Going Supernova...

as even the last skeptics now are beginning to accept the fact that the world is bankrupt.

You know what absolutely mystifies me? How could anyone be short precious metals? Only bankers and production hedgers could possibly be. Producers wouldn't need to hedge if bankers would quit manipulating precious metals markets. 

With Bernanke's announcement that QE3 is now a possibility....something others and I have been talking about for months as a certainty...people are going to buy the last store of wealth. Real money.

QE3 is proof positive that we have arrived at the end game. Guaranteed. There is no central banking solution left. Print, print, print. And you can damn well bet central bankers are dumping fiat for gold.

Throughout time, as fiat currency reverts to its intrinsic value of dog shit...gold and silver maintain their status.  A whole bunch of people are gonna find this out far too late to do anything about it.

Moonbats Now Want Nanny Government to Intervene and Bust the Parents of Fat Kids

It never ends. Now the nanny left wants government to intervene on behalf of fat kids. The moonbats will think they have standing in the issue. The right to interfere in other peoples' lives. They know how everybody should live, just ask them. They will say, "our insurance premiums will rise because of this." That makes it our business or they will call it a societal issue. In the end, it is just the nanny left telling everyone how to live their lives. This thing will get traction.

Our Leaders Are Liars, They Can't Do the Right Thing Because They Simply Don't Know What That Is

Eric "Look the Other Way" Holder is caught in the GunWalker scandal. Lying. The United States Attorney General takes an oath of office and another one as an officer of the court. He has probably violated both. But unlike you and I- there won't be any investigation or charges. Let alone a trial. At worst Holder will simply be allowed to quit. This is the government we've come to expect.

President Screw Off Now Using Fear to Try and Get Debt Ceiling Raised

I never cared much for Bush. Bush was a piker. Obama is simply the most worthless human being I have ever witnessed. Vacations, golfing, the guy has absolutely no interest in doing anything difficult like working, doing the right thing, or behaving like a President.

Now this pathetic President is trying to whip up some fear in the sheep that they won't get their social security checks if the debt ceiling isn't raised.

When this four years is up, I pray I never hear his name again.  It's like a nightmare that never ends. http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/ticket/obama-cannot-guarantee-benefits-checks-paid-debt-deal-183025203.html

Ron Paul Ain't No Lawyer

Ron Paul is retiring from Congress. Ron is a straight shooter, absolutely scandal- free, and he knows what only a few of us know. That the FED, in it's present state, is the greatest Ponzi scheme ever invented.

He is a doctor. Imagine that. A guy who thought helping other people might be important. You see, when I hear the term lawyer, I think self servant not public servant. Some of the finest narcissists and ego driven maniacs that I have ever met were lawyers. Now I try to stay away from stereotypes and for sure I know some damn fine people who are lawyers. But I really think the good ones are a minority group within that collection. Mr. Paul chose a career that helps people. Interesting, that choice. How have the lawyers been doing??

I will use our President and Congress as examples. Nearly 50 percent of the members of Congress are lawyers. Pretty effective bunch, huh? In fact that single occupation, lawyer, accounts for virtually all of the judiciary branch of government, nearly a majority of the legislative branch, and a significant portion of the executive branch including Comrade Obama. Michelle Bachman was an IRS attorney. And it's that career choice that allows me to ferret out how successful people might be as leaders in public service. Why?

Lawyers don't create anything of value. They don't contribute to society. They find ways to exploit existing law and people. That's bad enough. But the one thing I never hear a lawyer utter...is that I became a lawyer so that I could help others. Try it next time you meet a lawyer. Ask them why he or she became a lawyer. Please email me if you ever hear one say that they became a lawyer to "help others."

It's the mind set that one has prior to entering law school. It's really the key to unlocking the true intentions of a would be public servant or self servant as their career unfolds. Very often lawyers become lawyers for purely selfish and ego driven reasons. They do not become lawyers because they feel a need to help desperate and needy people. Are their exceptions? I have seen a few.

A willingness to help others is the cornerstone of public service. Why would you expect people who chose a self serving occupation to spend their careers genuinely helping others? You wouldn't and they don't. That's ok. You might need a good lawyer. But that doesn't mean they make good public servants. And that successful resume' is on full display right now.  The 111th and 112th Congess.

Ron Paul is 75. He is disliked by the left and the right. He represents the lunatic fringe. He is absolutely the right guy, at precisely the right moment, and he doesn't stand a chance. Completely un-electable. The hatred for Paul is absolutely palpable on right wing sites like Ace of Spades. Interestingly enough, in conservative scoring and voting records, Ron Paul votes precisely as the Republican Party would have him vote. But the party itself will not support him. If Paul becomes a credible threat by some odd stretch of the imagination next year...you can bet both parties will do everything in their power to marginalize him and put him in quicksand on the fringe.

That's too bad. A do what you say, say what you mean sort of guy. Absolutely transparent, predictable, and scandal free. You know precisely where he stands on all issues. That's integrity. Paul is the kind of guy middle class Americans should love. He is a real public servant. It's been so long since we've seen one of those, most people don't know what they are. Best of all, he ain't no lawyer. What else do you need to know?

Warren Buffett Gives Gold A Boost

I can't tell you what irritates me about Warren Buffett exactly...other than I think that Buffett thinks he has earned the privilege of talking like an expert on anything having to do with money. That somehow his opinions are actually matters of fact.

That's a lot of credibility to extend to anyone. So it seems that a lot of people think Buffett is the smartest guy in the room in all things money. So why doesn't the smartest guy in the room like gold? This is actually far simpler than one would imagine.

Simply stated, if everyone abandoned fiat currency and equities, Warren's investments wouldn't be worth shit, would they? In other words, the Oracle of Omaha doesn't want to drive buyers out of the markets he's in- he wants buyers to come in. He arrived before you did.

I'm glad Warren hates gold. All the more reason to buy some. We will be there ahead of him. Here's a snip...from the smartest guy in the room....well except for Komrade Obama of course.

Jim Cramer Critiques Warren Buffett Over Anti Gold Bias
Jim Cramer, the host of "Mad Money" has critiqued the Sage of Omaha, Warren Buffett, and his anti gold bias. Buffett has said that gold isn't a sound long term investment because the precious metal has no ‘utility’.

Cramer says that he has heard from people saying they will not invest in gold since it was $700 per ounce because they “missed it” or because “someone like a Warren Buffett has said how valueless or silly it is”.
(GoldCore Editors note: George Soros cryptic comments about gold are similarly used by so called financial experts to dissuade people from owning gold)

“No one goes to Warren Buffett and says how have you done versus gold in the last 10 years. That is verboten. You are not allowed to ask him that.”

Cramer said that this “makes it very difficult to make headway with people” about owning gold.

While Buffett snubs the value of gold, Cramer emphasizes the limited amount of gold bullion available and gold’s rarity (see GoldNomics video), as well as the lack of new gold being mined. Cramer says that there is far less gold than there is Berkshire Hathaway B shares and that Buffett can just print the shares.

“Against all that is a grey beard investor who has already made a lot of money, who frankly could have his money devalued and still have a lot and I feel like  …  you know what Warren  … give other people a chance to make some money here ok.”
“Give other people a chance to protect their assets, give people a chance to buy insurance.”

“I would rather buy the insurance policy of gold than the insurance policy of Geico    … pretty simple.” (to laughter)
