Zero Nicotine Hookah Pens

Taxpayers are paying billions of dollars for a swindle pulled off by the world’s biggest banks, using a form of derivative called interest-rate swaps; and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation has now joined a chorus of litigants suing over it. According to an SEIU report:

Derivatives . . . have turned into a windfall for banks and a nightmare for taxpayers. . . . While banks are still collecting fixed rates of 3 to 6 percent, they are now regularly paying public entities as little as a tenth of one percent on the outstanding bonds, with rates expected to remain low in the future. Over the life of the deals, banks are now projected to collect billions more than they pay state and local governments – an outcome which amounts to a second bailout for banks, this one paid directly out of state and local budgets.

It is not just that local governments, universities and pension funds made a bad bet on these swaps. The game itself was rigged, as explained below. The FDIC is now suing in civil court for damages and punitive damages, a lead that other injured local governments and agencies would be well-advised to follow. But they need to hurry, because time on the statute of limitations is running out.

The Largest Cartel in World History

On March 14, 2014, the FDIC filed suit for LIBOR-rigging against sixteen of the world’s largest banks – including the three largest USbanks (JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America, and Citigroup), the three largest UKbanks, the largest German bank, the largest Japanese bank, and several of the largest Swiss banks. Bill Black, professor of law and economics and a former bank fraud investigator, calls them “the largest cartel in world history, by at least three and probably four orders of magnitude.”

LIBOR (the London Interbank Offering Rate) is the benchmark rate by which banks themselves can borrow. It is a crucial rate involved in hundreds of trillions of dollars in derivative trades, and it is set by these sixteen megabanks privately and in secret.

Interest rate swaps are now a $426 trillion business. That’s trillion with a “t” – about seven times the gross domestic product of all the countries in the world combined. According to the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, in 2012 US banks held $183.7 trillion in interest-rate contracts, with only four firms representing 93% of total derivative holdings; and three of the four were JPMorgan Chase, Citigroup, and Bank of America, the US banks being sued by the FDIC over manipulation of LIBOR.

Lawsuits over LIBOR-rigging have been in the works for years, and regulators have scored some very impressive regulatory settlements. But so far, civil actions for damages have been unproductive for the plaintiffs. The FDIC is therefore pursuing another tack.

But before getting into all that, we need to look at how interest-rate swaps work. It has been argued that the counterparties stung by these swaps got what they bargained for – a fixed interest rate. But that is not actually what they got. The game was rigged from the start.

The Sting

Interest-rate swaps are sold to parties who have taken out loans at variable interest rates, as insurance against rising rates. The most common swap is one where counterparty A (a university, municipal government, etc.) pays a fixed rate to counterparty B (the bank), while receiving from B a floating rate indexed to a reference rate such as LIBOR. If interest rates go up, the municipality gets paid more on the swap contract, offsetting its rising borrowing costs. If interest rates go down, the municipality owes money to the bank on the swap, but that extra charge is offset by the falling interest rate on its variable rate loan. The result is to fix borrowing costs at the lower variable rate.

At least, that is how it’s supposed to work. The catch is that the swap is a separate financial agreement – essentially an ongoing bet on interest rates. The borrower owes both the interest onits variable rate loan and what it must pay out on this separate swap deal. And the benchmarks for the two rates don’t necessarily track each other. As explained by Stephen Gandel on CNN Money:

The rates on the debt were based on something called the Sifma municipal bond index, which is named after the industry group that maintains the index and tracks muni bonds. And that’s what municipalities should have bought swaps based on.

Instead, Wall Street sold municipalities Libor swaps, which were easier to trade and [were] quickly becoming a gravy train for the banks.

Historically, Sifma and LIBOR moved together. But that was before the greatest-ever global banking cartel got into the game of manipulating LIBOR. Gandel writes:

In 2008 and 2009, Libor rates, in general, fell much faster than the Sifma rate. At times, the rates even went in different directions. During the height of the financial crisis, Sifma rates spiked. Libor rates, though, continued to drop. The result was that the cost of the swaps that municipalities had taken out jumped in price at the same time that their borrowing costs went up, which was exactly the opposite of how the swaps were supposed to work.

The two rates had decoupled, and it was chiefly due to manipulation. As noted in the SEUI report:

[T]here is . . . mounting evidence that it is no accident that these deals have gone so badly, so quickly for state and local governments. Ongoing investigations by the U.S. Department of Justice and theCalifornia,Florida, and Connecticut Attorneys General implicate nearly every major bank in a nationwide conspiracy to rig bids and drive up the fixed rates state and local governments pay on their derivative contracts.

Changing the Focus to Fraud

Suits to recover damages for collusion, antitrust violations and racketeering (RICO), however, have so far failed. In March 2013, SDNY Judge Naomi Reece Buchwald dismissed antitrust and RICO claims brought by investors and traders in actions consolidated in her court, on the ground that the plaintiffs lacked standing to bring the claims. She held that the rate-setting banks’ actions did not affect competition, because those banks were not in competition with one another with respect to LIBOR rate-setting; and that “the alleged collusion occurred in an arena in which defendants never did and never were intended to compete.”

Okay, the defendants weren’t competing with each other. They were colluding with each other, in order to unfairly compete with the rest of the financial world – local banks, credit unions, and the state and local governments they lured into being counterparties to their rigged swaps. The SDNY ruling is on appeal to the Second Circuit.

In the meantime, the FDIC is taking another approach. Its 24-count complaint does include antitrust claims, but the emphasis is on damages for fraud and conspiring to keep the LIBOR rate low to enrich the banks. The FDIC is not the first to bring such claims, but its massive suit adds considerable weight to the approach.

Why would keeping interest rates low enrich the rate-setting banks? Don’t they make more money if interest rates are high?

The answer is no. Unlike most banks, they make most of their money not from ordinary commercial loans but from interest rate swaps. The FDIC suit seeks to recover losses caused to 38USbanking institutions that did make their profits from ordinary business and consumer loans – banks that failed during the financial crisis and were taken over by the FDIC. They include Washington Mutual, the largest bank failure inUShistory. Since the FDIC had to cover the deposits of these failed banks, it clearly has standing to recover damages, and maybe punitive damages, if intentional fraud is proved.

The Key Role of the Federal Reserve

The rate-rigging banks have been caught red-handed, but the greater manipulation of interest rates was done by the Federal Reserve itself. The Fed aggressively drove down interest rates to save the big banks and spur economic recovery after the financial collapse. In the fall of 2008, it dropped the prime rate (the rate at which banks borrow from each other) nearly to zero.

This gross manipulation of interest rates was a giant windfall for the major derivative banks. Indeed, the Fed has been called a tool of the global banking cartel. It is composed of 12 branches, all of which are 100% owned by the private banks in their districts; and the Federal Reserve Bank of New Yorkhas always been the most important by far of these regional Fed banks.New York, of course is where Wall Street is located.

LIBOR is set in London; but as Simon Johnson observed in a New York Times article titled The Federal Reserve and the LIBOR Scandal, the Fed has jurisdiction whenever the “safety and soundness” of the US financial system is at stake. The scandal, he writes, “involves egregious, flagrant criminal conduct, with traders caught red-handed in e-mails and on tape.” He concludes:

This could even become a “tobacco moment,” in which an industry is forced to acknowledge its practices have been harmful – and enters into a long-term agreement that changes those practices and provides continuing financial compensation.

Bill Black concurs, stating, “Our system is completely rotten. All of the largest banks are involved—eagerly engaged in this fraud for years, covering it up.” The system needs a complete overhaul.

In the meantime, if the FDIC can bring a civil action for breach of contract and fraud, so can state and local governments, universities, and pension funds. The possibilities this opens up forCalifornia(where I’m currently running for State Treasurer) are huge. Fraud is grounds for rescission (terminating the contract) without paying penalties, potentially saving taxpayers enormous sums in fees for swap deals that are crippling cities, universities and other public entities across the state. Fraud is also grounds for punitive damages, something an outraged jury might be inclined to impose. My next post will explore the possibilities forCaliforniain more detail. Stay tuned.

PITTSBURGH —Several law enforcement agencies gathered Tuesday at PNC Park for a homeland security training exercise that kept some of the area near the Pittsburgh Pirates’ ballpark off-limits to the public.

The city’s office of Emergency Management and Homeland Security, the U.S. Army National Guard, the Ohio State Civil Support Team and PNC Park security will conduct the exercise until 7 p.m.

“In this particular case, they are oriented towards weapons of mass destruction,” says Ray DeMichiei, the city’s deputy director of emergency management. “Generally, it will involve suspicious packages being located by PNC Park personnel, and the scenario is a World Series event.”

Citing the safety of those involved, specific details were not released.

It’s not the first time that the ballpark has hosted a drill of this magnitude.

“We do this every now and again,” DeMichiei said. “And it’s just like anything else — like a golf swing, you have to stay in practice in order to do it right, so that’s what we’re doing.”

Mazeroski Way will be closed between General Robinson Boulevard and North Shore Drive, with no parking allowed. Only local traffic will be allowed to enter North Shore Drive at Tony Dorsett Drive.

The Pirates are out of town on a nine-game road trip that begins Tuesday night at Wrigley Field in Chicago.

“To force a man to pay for the violation of his own liberty is indeed an addition of insult to injury.”—Benjamin Tucker, 19th century advocate of American individualist anarchism

The State Department wants $400,000 to purchase a fiberglass sculpture of a camel looking at a needle for its new embassy in Pakistan. They’ve already spent their allotted $630,000 to increase the number of “likes” and fans on their Facebook and Twitter pages. The NATO ambassador for the U.S. needs $700,000 for landscaping and gardening, the National Science Foundation would like $700,000 to put on a theatrical production about climate change, and the Senate staffers need $1.9 million for lifestyle coaching. Also, Yale University researchers could really use $384,000 so they can study the odd cork-screw shape of a duck’s penis.

I promise this is no belated April Fools’ joke. These are actual line items paid for by American taxpayers, whose tax dollars continue to be wasted on extravagant, unnecessary items that serve no greater purpose than to fatten the wallets of corporations and feed political graft (such as the $1 million bus stop, complete with heated benches and sidewalks which can only shelter 15 people and provides little protection from rain, snow, or the sun).

Case in point: despite the fact that we have 46 million Americans living at or below the poverty line, 16 million children living in households without adequate access to food, and at least 900,000 veterans relying on food stamps, enormous sums continue to be doled out for presidential vacations ($16 million for trips to Africa and Hawaii), overtime fraud at the Department of Homeland Security (nearly $9 million in improper overtime claims, and that’s just in six of the DHS’ many offices), and Hollywood movie productions ($10 million was spent by the Army National Guard on Superman movie tie-ins aimed at increasing awareness about the National Guard).

This doesn’t even touch on the astronomical amounts of money spent on dubious wars abroad.

Consider that since 2001, Americans have spent $10.5 million every hour for numerous foreign military occupations, including in Iraq and Afghanistan. There’s also the $2.2 million spent every hour on maintaining the United States’ nuclear stockpile, and the $35,000 spent every hour to produce and maintain our collection of Tomahawk missiles. And then there’s the money the government exports to other countries to support their arsenals, at the cost of $1.61 million every hour for the American taxpayers.

Then there’s the U.S. Supreme Court’s recent decision in McCutcheon v. FEC, which reinforces a government mindset in which the rights of the wealthy are affirmed by the courts, while the rights of average, working class Americans are routinely dismissed as secondary to corporate and governmental concerns. Under the guise of protecting free speech, a divided 5-4 Court did away with established limits on the number of candidates an individual can support with campaign contributions.

In doing so, the justices expanded on the Court’s landmark 2010 ruling in Citizens United v. FEC, which not only gave unfettered free speech rights to corporations but paved the way for corporations to spend unlimited amounts of money promoting candidates, especially presidential candidates. What this does, of course, is turn the ballot box into an auction block, wherein those who are “elected” to public office are bought and paid for by those who can afford to support their campaigns—namely, lobbyists, corporations and high-dollar donors. (Then again, perhaps it will remain status quo. According to a 2013 study by Trinity University, U.S. Senators do not take into account the opinions and wishes of their lower class constituents. Rather, their voting was aligned with their upper class constituents. This dismissal of lower class opinion held true for both Republican and Democratic Senators, themselves made up of millionaires.)

When all is said and done, what we are witnessing is the emergence of a disconcerting government mindset that interprets the Constitution one way for corporations, government entities and the wealthy, and uses a second measure altogether for average Americans. For example, contrast the Supreme Court’s affirmation of the “free speech” rights of corporations and wealthy donors in McCutcheon and Citizens United with its tendency to deny those same rights to average Americans when government interests abound, such as in its 2012 decision in Reichle v. Howards, where a unanimous Supreme Court allowed immunity protections for Secret Service agents to trump the free speech rights of Americans, and you’ll find a noticeable disparity.

Unfortunately, as I point out in my book A Government of Wolves: The Emerging American Police State, this constitutional double standard is coming to bear in all aspects of our lives, not just in the realm of campaign finance law. It allows lobbyists intimate access to our elected officials, while prohibiting Americans from even standing silently in protest near a government building; it grants immunity to police officers who shoot unarmed citizens, while harshly punishing Americans who attempt to defend themselves, mistaking a SWAT team raid for a home invasion; and it gives government agents carte blanche access to Americans’ communications and activities, while allowing the government to operate in secret, with secret hearings, secret budgets and secret agendas.

This is a far cry from how a representative government is supposed to operate. Indeed, it has been a long time since we could claim to be the masters of our own lives. Rather, we are now the subjects of a militarized, corporate empire in which the vast majority of the citizenry work their hands to the bone for the benefit of a privileged few.

Adding injury to the ongoing insult of having our tax dollars misused and our so-called representatives bought and paid for by the moneyed elite, the government then turns around and uses the money we earn with our blood, sweat and tears to target, imprison and entrap us, in the form of militarized police, surveillance cameras, private prisons, license plate readers, drones, and cell phone tracking technology.

All of those nefarious deeds that you read about in the paper every day: those are your tax dollars at work. It’s your money that allows for government agents to spy on your emails, your phone calls, your text messages, and your movements. It’s your money that allows out-of-control police officers to burst into innocent people’s homes, or probe and strip search motorists on the side of the road. And it’s your money that leads to innocent Americans across the country being prosecuted for innocuous activities such as raising chickens at home, growing vegetable gardens, and trying to live off the grid.

Just remember the next time you see a news story that makes your blood boil, whether it’s a police officer arresting someone for filming them in public, or a child being kicked out of school for shooting an imaginary arrow, or a homeowner being threatened with fines for building a pond in his backyard, remember that it is your tax dollars that are paying for these injustices.

So what are you going to do about it?

There was a time in our history when our forebears said “enough is enough” and stopped paying their taxes to what they considered an illegitimate government. They stood their ground and refused to support a system that was slowly choking out any attempts at self-governance, and which refused to be held accountable for its crimes against the people. Their resistance sowed the seeds for the revolution that would follow.

Unfortunately, in the 200-plus years since we established our own government, we’ve let bankers, turncoats and number-crunching bureaucrats muddy the waters and pilfer the accounts to such an extent that we’re back where we started. Once again, we’ve got a despotic regime with an imperial ruler doing as they please. Once again, we’ve got a judicial system insisting we have no rights under a government which demands that the people march in lockstep with its dictates. And once again, we’ve got to decide whether we’ll keep marching or break stride and make a turn toward freedom.

But what if we didn’t just pull out our pocketbooks and pony up to the federal government’s outrageous demands for more money? What if we didn’t just dutifully line up to drop our hard-earned dollars into the collection bucket, no questions asked about how it will be spent? What if, instead of quietly sending in our checks, hoping vainly for some meager return, we did a little calculating of our own and started deducting from our taxes those programs that we refuse to support?

If we don’t have the right to decide what happens to our hard-earned cash, then we don’t have very many rights at all. If they can just take from you what they want, when they want, and then use it however they want, you can’t claim to be anything more than a serf in a land they think of as theirs. This was the case in the colonial era, and it’s the case once again.

Ken McMurtrie:

This topic probably could extend to a volume or two but here it looks at freedom of the press, journalists and whistle-blowers, and then only scrapes the surface. Here is an excerpt:
In the documentary “We Are Legion”
Heath The Freedoms reports: Over the course of the past year, you’ve most likely come across strange stories regarding the tragic fates of those connected with the BP oil disaster. When compiled, the stories are all together shocking and disturbing. Is it possible that the nine deaths and others affected who were involved in different areas of disaster knowledge are just random coincidences? Check into the details and decide for yourself.
Of the 12 high profile people in question, 9 are mysteriously dead, 1 nearly died in a brutal assassination attempt, 1 is imprisoned under questionable charges, and another has simply disappeared. You can watch a video tutorial of the cases while you read the segments. Below that, you can follow the links to all the cases.

A plea deal required the judge to impose a sentence of two and a half years. US district judge Leonie Brinkema said she would have given Kiriakou much more time if she could.
Kiriakou’s supporters describe him as a whistle blower who exposed aspects of the CIA’s use of torture against detained terrorists. Prosecutors said Kiriakou was merely seeking to increase his fame and public stature by trading on his insider knowledge.

There are 30,774,038 federal, state and local government employees if you count the 4.4 million federal contractors and 2.5 million grantees. Are we getting our money’s worth? America has sent 12 million high paying jobs and 56,000 manufacturing plants overseas. We now have 51.5 million low paying workers who pay few if any taxes at all. 27 million individuals and families with children received an average of $1,330 in welfare payments disguised as Earned Income Tax Credits (EITC.) With our declining wages and employment we might ask ourselves are all those people worth it.

Any government worker who participated in the surveillance and assassination of the journalist Michael Hastings needs to at least lose their job if not serve time in prison. Journalism for good reason is the only profession protected by the Bill of Rights.

The Transportation Security Administration says they have 50,000 employees. TSA has not found one terrorist but they have groped our genitals, stolen our valuables, irradiated us with their machines and shown us the true Face of Arrogance. The TSA claims to be supervising 15% of all American industry. We need to stop them before they start groping us at the malls. Abolish them and let the airlines take responsibility for screening their passengers.

Senator Dianne Feinstein who gave away a $100 billion gold deposit in the southern California mountains to her nearest and dearest friends said that the No Fly List is one of our best lines of defense. The No Fly List and the Slow Fly List are maintained by the Terrorist Screening Center. They do not catch terrorists. What they do is maintain a List of People The Administration Does Not like. The FBI could maintain lists of fugitives from justice and lists of witnesses who need to appear in court or to talk to investigators. The CIA could maintain a List of actual terrorists if there are any not on their payroll. Scratch the No and Slow Fly Lists and the TSC. Let the airlines check their passengers against an FBI database.

The Department of Homeland Security has 240,000 employees and probably that many contractors. They do not do much of anything to protect us. This agency includes the TSA. They engage in Security Theater. They are buying billions of rounds of ammunition illegal to use against enemy combatants. They are buying No Hesitation targets training their agents to shoot pregnant women and children. They would like us to all go to the DHS to secure a work permit. No jobs allowed for people critical of Wall Street. Abolish the entire agency.

The National Security Agency has 40,000 employees and hundreds of thousands of contractors. Angela Canterbury, director of public policy at the Project on Government Oversight, said “There are millions of contractors inside the nation’s intelligence agencies.”  Salon magazine says 500,000 contractors have access to NSA data which includes all of of emails, phone calls, web searches and secret company data worth billions of dollars to competitors. They require both our computer chips and operating systems to allow back doors to give them access. They have servers capable of sending out malware to millions of people like you and me in one minute.

All of this spying is costing us jobs because people overseas do not want the American companies to spy on them for the NSA. The has done nothing to enhance our security. It does harm law enforcement because Israel gets NSA raw data and can use it to alert Israeli criminals in America when the police are closing in on them. Go back to signals intelligence. Get rid of the contractors. Get rid of a lot of NSA employees. Stop paying private companies to spy on their customers. Start a campaign for new chips and clean operating systems advertising No NSA Inside.

The Department of Justice perverts justice. If you pay $100,000 a month to Attorney General Eric Holder’s law firm Covington and Burling, you cannot be prosecuted even if you steal $1.2 billion dollars in clients money. We need to fire the people who pervert justice.

The FBI has taken agents away from investigating Wall Street and put them on anti-terrorism details. They have not done a very good job. They have been paying mentally retarded people from minority groups to do things which result in an indictment and headlines . The courts have thrown out quite a few of these cases. My favorite was the Miami case where they gave a mentally deficient teenager with mental problems an expensive camera, taught him how to take pictures and sent him out to take photos of federal buildings. He didn’t take any pictures because he sold the FBI’s camera for $50 so he could buy food. He was hungry. The FBI got their camera back, sent him out again and arrested him. Nice headlines but a complete waste of time. Give these FBI agents a list of criminals to arrest on Wall Street.

The Securities Exchange Commission does not prosecute the criminals of Wall Street. They do not nothing against well documented cases of front running. Companies are allowed to read incoming buy orders and step in line ahead of them to buy and then sell a fraction of a second later for a profit. They do the same on sell orders. This allows select Wall Street firms to gouge an extra hundred million dollars a day from our mutual and pension funds. That is money stolen directly from our retirement funds.

The CIA brings heroin and cocaine into America by the plane load. They sell these drugs and illegal weapons to favored street gangs. There are 1.4 million gang members in the US. They commit 80% of our violent crime. We need to fire everyone in the Agency who has anything to do with illegal operations. We could do what we did in 1920 which was allow anyone who wanted to to buy opium. That would take a trillion dollars a year from organized crime, the Bankers, the government and cut down the size of those street gangs.

The Materials Management Service fails to adequately regulate offshore drilling. And the US Congress has still not passed a law requiring acoustic blow out preventers to protect reckless offshore drilling accidents  like the BP Horizon disaster in the Gulf of Mexico on April 20, 2010. The health of millions of people is at stake. And we are losing our food supply from the Oceans at a time we cannot afford to pay more to eat. I don’t remember anyone getting fired for taking bribes and allowing oil companies to do their own safety inspections.

The FDA has allowed Genetically Modified Organisms to be fed to human beings even though they are known to cause cancer and to expose the entire human race to extinction. By the third generation the lab animals are all sterile runts.

Flouride has been known to be poisonous to humans since 1893. It has been shown to lower IQs and to cause cancer. Yet it is allowed in our water and in food.

When Campbells soup company tried to advertise that they did not line their cans with Bisphenol A because it was an estrogen mimicker that causes cancer and makes us fat, the FDA stopped them. The FDA needs serious fumigation. Fire everyone in management.

Aspartame is known to cause cancer, obesity, seizures, diabetes, headaches, memory loss and acne. Why are there no warning labels and bans?

Polysorbate 80 is put into vaccines as an adjuvant when it is known to cause sterility. Why not let us decide if we want to be sterilized?

The FDA paid Matthew Hein of the Epicyte corporation in 2001 to splice a protein into GMO corn that causes sterility in both men and women. Why were we not asked if we thought that extinguishing the human species is a good idea?

MSG is known to cause cancer, obesity, hunger, Alzheimers, hives and brain damage. It stimulates our brains to trick us in to eating more. Poor people in America can barely afford to buy food now. Food prices are skyrocketing. Ban MSG.

We should only allow registered doctors and hospitals should do clinical trials not pharmaceutical companies. Test new and even doubtful existing drugs against home remedies. If a new diabetes drug scores no better than vitamin D3 and cinnamon, then insurers should not have to cover it.

The Federal Reserve is not a part of the federal government but they do own every politician in Washington. They printed tens of trillions of dollars they did not tell us about to bail out criminal banks in Europe and Britain. That means that when he hit the next crisis they will have no problem solving tools (i.e. Money Printing) left so we will soon face Hyperinflation. The Federal Reserve should be seized. Fractional Reserve banking which allows a bank to create $10 for every dollar on deposit should be abolished. We do need a non-interest bearing currency like President Lincoln’s Greenbacks.

The Great Society of President Lyndon Johnson was designed to fail. They created hundreds of programs and spent money but the poor are worse off than before due to government action and inaction. They paid teenage girls money to have illegitimate children instead of treating a pregnancy of 14 year-old girl as one addition to her mother’s household. There are children by the millions in America living in 3 generations of poverty, ignorance and illegitimacy. There are corresponding employees at the county and state level to administer these programs. Fire them all or almost all.

Have the IRS give a credit through their employer to any citizen who takes home less than $11 an hour. Any citizen 18 years or older should get $600 to the custodial parent for the first child and $400 for the second child. If a married couple works 40 hours a week, they will take home $22,880 a year each for a total of $45,760 for the two of them. If they have two children, they will get an additional $12,000 a year in child allowances for a total after tax family income of $57,760. That is more than the average after tax income of the average American. I would pay for this by canceling the Food Stamp program and just about every other federal, state and local welfare job. No one knows how many of these people there are. Surely more than 5 million.

We need to rationalize government. Find out what every employee’s function is. Many employees from many different Departments could be combined into a few people at one or two agencies. Food Stamp workers would be replaced by IRS computers. Those armed agents at the IRS should be fired along with those phony tax courts. Let the IRS give criminal referrals to the FBI and the Department of Justice.

Some functions and their employees need to be stopped altogether. What gives the EPA the right to harass a man in the middle of nowhere who wants to build a duck pond? We need to allow people to come forward to file complaints about the EPA and the Department of Agriculture at open public hearings. I would encourage each state to hold hearings from concerned parents whose children were taken from them by child molesters and other criminals who work for Child Protective Services. DynCorp, a known human trafficking company, is allowed for some reason to contract its employees to work at state CPS agencies. The federal government should be able to pull the charter for companies that engage in human trafficking and drug smuggling.

The one Department most people overseas and perhaps a plurality of Americans would like to see cutback is the Department of Defense.The United States has waged war against Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya and Syria based on knowingly false information. Our mercenaries killed 40,000 blacks in Libya after the war was over. We are quite literally paying Al Qaeda to kill Christians in Syria. In Syria our mercenaries have burned hundreds of churches to the ground. Some of these churches were founded in 50 A.D. They gouge out the eyes of priests and behead them. All of these wars need to stop.

I would like to start repairing America’s infrastructure. America has 1,700 dams and levees in urgent need of repair. We need to repair our bridges and our sewers and water systems. I would like to give the states a total of $100 billion a year for repairs and to build schools and other public buildings. The federal government could match that with another $100 billion. If we had a non-interest bearing currency like Lincoln’s Greenbacks, we could maintain a constant ratio of the Money Supply to Goods and Services for sale. This would produce a stable price level and allow us to spend into circulation any increase in the Money Supply which currently is $500 billion a year. I would spend $200 billion on infrastructure. A state with 2% of the population would get 2% of that hundred billion plus another $2 billion in federal grants for a total of $4 billion. I would also spend part of that $500 billion on the incomes policy so all workers take home $11 an hour.

I would also fund Worldwide Debt Cancellation using those troops who until recently were kicking in doors  overseas. Instead I would use our military to invade all of those offshore Bank Havens like the Cayman Islands, Lichtenstein and Dubai to seize the tens of trillions of dollars stolen from us and the people in foreign countries to cancel our debts and fund our pensions. We would need the list of clients and corporations from the lawyers who specialize in hiding money. The Rothschilds have a private bank in the Caribbean that could pay for the British Value Added Tax. I would ask the people of Great Britain and Europe to stop paying their Value Added Tax promising to pay the tax from foreign bank accounts. This will start an instant rebellion and recovery. The next step would be to offer their parliamentarians a cash bonus to resign. This will create instant elections and reform. I would like them to join in our systematic Worldwide Debt Cancellation to include all the nations of Africa, the Mideast, Latin America and Asia.

I would also fund US Debt Cancellation by the money held by the more than tens of thousands of government agencies listed by http://www.CAFR1.com.

If the dollar stops functioning as the world’s reserve currency, we will have to start rationalizing and streamlining our federal, state and local governments. If we fail, we will starve to death by the millions as Americans did during the Great Depression.

Speed Up and Fix Computer Errors!
There are more than 300 million people in the USA. 492 of them are billionaires. That represents roughly 16 millionths of 1%. In decimal form that’s .0000016, or as a fraction, 16 over 1 million. This is not the 1% the Occupy Movement imprinted on (some of) the national consciousness. Even an innumerate person can understand that represents a teeny, tiny, microscopic portion of our supposedly democratic, equal opportunity, propaganda spouting world’s most deadly military killing machine in history.
But hey, we’re a free enterprise system, right? Those less than 500 of us are brilliant, industrious, hard working people who’ve earned every penny of that money by getting up early and getting off to the foundry, office, factory, school, hospital and sundry other places where people work, while the rest of us – roughly 99.9999984% – are loutish chumps (except for a small professional elite who were smart enough to become servants to that 16/millionth) who, if we work much harder, regularly attend religious services and even more regularly take good drugs, can also hope to join them up at that fractional faction of a factional fraction at the top. Someday. Sure.
It’s in the Constitution. Or the Declaration. Or the bible? Well, maybe a comic book?
Meanwhile, at the other extreme of our population, far more people, actually tens of thousands, live in and on the street. They sleep in shelters, which put them up for the night if they are lucky enough to get in, and put them out in the morning. Or they sleep in cars, doorways, under bridges and on park benches, if there is no room at the inn – oops – shelter. But not to worry, theirs is not complete despair, abject misery or living death by comparison to the opulence enjoyed by the top fraction and its servant class.

Our bottom dwelling humans who absorb the most extreme loss that ultimately benefits upper level private profits can avail themselves of free food dispensaries at least once a day. And free health clinics and hospital emergency rooms when their economically and elements weakened state brings on illness or disease. And if they drop dead in the street and are not claimed by relatives, they are guaranteed publicly financed burial in Potter’s Fields. That’s after their bodies have been used to train future doctors and nurses, assuming the ravages of their lives haven’t reduced them to former human but now garbage offering no useful parts or organs as tools for medical education.
We also have tens of millions of pet dogs and cats which live in warmth and comfort, are often loved as members of our human families, are very well fed and have health care from thousands of pet clinics staffed by educated veterinarians, including oncologists. This in a nation where some die in the street and no one even knows they had cancer until their unclaimed bodies are used for medical experiments.
Those may seem uncommon extremes of the social order but they are factual and not the healthiest sign for a nation and culture in which many still believe that we are superior to others, and if not a master race of chosen people, at least an exceptionally wonderful place to have a family, raise a dog, tap a phone or aim a drone. Given that and the fact that the overwhelming majority of what is called the scientific community warns us that our treatment of the planet’s human and other resources is bringing us closer to a failure and possible breakdown of society previously inconceivable, what would you say we should be most concerned about?
What happened at Downton Abbey? The outcome of the NCAA March Madness? The chances that Miley Somebody’s twerky tongue will grow a foot longer? That Pussy Riot will move to America and host next year’s Academy Awards? Nope, nothing that important. Guess?
Putin, and Russia’s attempt to take over the globe and make us all eat evil black bread!
You’d think as much if you read, watch, listen to and especially believe what you’re told by our nation’s corporate ministry of disinformation, which has been beating the drums of war for years now but most recently over this alleged renewed threat from Russia. And where is the evil Cossack saber poised to strike at the burgers, fries, Fox TV and PBS series we so love, cherish and would die for?
Right on our very borders at the Ukraine!
Well, though it actually borders on Russia and parts of it like the Crimea have actually been in Russia and millions of its population identify with and speak Russian, you might think it was in downtown Dallas or uptown New York for the way it has been treated by our sometimes telegenically attractive brain dead media mind managers and their pinheaded mentors in our Hollywood-for-ugly-people Government.
This would be laughable if not hysterically so, but for the fact that what passes for leadership, like the president, secretary of state, a wannabe president, and half wit critics of those dim bulbs because they aren’t warlike enough, dominate what passes for discussion on an issue that could lead to even greater stress on a failing system, if not a blunder into a war that might just bring on collapse that much sooner.
There has never have been a better time to totally disregard corporate media and to be extremely careful about what passes for its “alternative”. Study a map of the world and also look at the material reality of the USA that’s neglected by those who tell us about it rather than allowing us to experience it. Learn to respect your neighbors and turn anger at those who allegedly represent you but are owned and operated exclusively for the benefit of that top minuscule minority and their servants. Demand and create social transformation before these people and their system destroys us all. Hurry.
You can call that process democracy, revolution, or lunch. The substance is what matters, not the label.

Collaborative project urging pension giant TIAA-CREF to divest from companies profiting from colonialism and ethnic cleansing by Israel in Palestine. Video by Jihane al Quds. Lyric:

We don’t need no occupation (Divest! Divest!)

Hey, T-Cref, leave them kids alone!
All in all we’re gonna tear those bricks from the wall
All in all we’re gonna tear those bricks from the wall

We don’t need no Northrop Grumman (Divest! Divest!)
Death and mayhem from above (Divest! Divest!)

For Palestine let’s show some love
Northrop Grumman, Veolia, Sodastream, Elbit Systems, Caterpillar
Hey, T-Cref, your dollars flatten homes!
All in all we’re gonna tear those bricks from the wall
All in all we’re gonna tear those bricks from the wall

We don’t need Veolia Light Rail (Divest! Divest!)

This article from Sott.net, by  Donald W. Miller, Jr., MD    LewRockwell.com , is the best comprehensive article on fats and related health issues I recall ever reading.

I consider it to be most impressive and well worth the reading of the whole article. All of the relevant subjects are mentioned in an easy to understand and educational way.

It is suggested that much of the current theory and practice in the cardiovascular health arena has not kept up with new findings and is, to some extent, based on imperfect research and reporting.

I would be grateful if any qualified medical professional, particularly a cardiac specialist, would comment on the credibility of the information.


This article is taken from a talk I gave at the 29th Annual Meeting of the Doctors for Disaster Preparedness in Albuquerque last week, on the controversial subject of saturated fats. Some of the slides that…

‘Imagine, just imagine, the outcry that would follow an imagined call by a European Muslim or Christian religious leader suggesting sending hundreds of thousands of Jews to concentration camps. The Sheikh or priest or bishop would be lambasted beyond imagination, and his denomination or church would immediately distance itself from his foolish remarks.

Political authorities would also declare that Nazi-minded Sheikh or bishop has no place in modern Europe and that governments would nip the hateful and racist elements in the bud. In short, he would be looked upon as a pariah, to say the very least. He even might be forced to commit suicide under public pressure.

As to Jewish circles, their protests would be clarion and omnipresent.

But how would things look like if such a call took place in Israel and was made by a popular rabbi, with hundreds of thousands of followers?

According to a weekly Hebrew magazine, several rabbis, including the rabbi of Safad, Shmuel Eliyahu, recently proposed the establishment of death camps for the Palestinians.’
