The Rule Of Law And What To Expect When “Rat Bastards” Are In Charge…

Ann Barnhardt explains some things to those of us who refuse to believe our own eyes. The snippet below nails it on the head and is in a similar vein as several other posts I have made in the last few days. All of us in the United States are being betrayed by our confirmation bias which leads us to believe that things are as they have always been and that the rule of law still exists. We also have this belief that our country could never become like those other 20th century nightmares, Germany, Japan, Russia, China and other smaller countries. We forget that some of those countries absolutely defined civilization and they went away to be replaced by horror. Certainly those 11 million people the Nazi Regime murdered fully expected that they were only taking showers after all it was far too barbaric to consider the reality. Confirmation bias led them to sleep walk to their graves. Anne is here to wake you up.

This all gets back to the historical illiteracy of this culture, thanks largely to the Marxist infiltration of the education system. You people honestly have NO FATHOM what happened in Nazi Germany, Eastern Europe, and the Soviet Union, do you? When Marxist oligarchs are your "government" there is NO RULE OF LAW. It doesn’t MATTER what you, or the old just legal system say you own. When jackbooted thugs come to take you away, there is no "law" to turn to, because the jackbooted thugs ARE "the law", meaning that there is no law at all except brute force and the willingness to use it. When the Soviets came to round up the Ukrainian farmers in 1933, why didn’t the Ukrainians just call the police? Why didn’t they produce the deeds to their homes and order the Soviets off their property? Why didn’t they SUE for violating their civil rights? And the same with the Jews in Poland? And the same with the Chinese peasants under Mao? Barnhardt.biz – Commodity Brokerage

Unemployment statistics are bullshit, deep, wide, fast, moving bullshit from the propaganda arm of what Ann calls the Rat Bastards of the Obama administration.

Once again, just making sure everyone understands the sickening farce that is the "unemployment figure." I said last year that the reported "unemployment number" would be UNDER EIGHT PERCENT no matter what in Q4 2012. Sure enough, it appears that I will be proven exactly right. Is this because unemployment is going down? HELLZ NO! Real unemployment is climbing consistently, and is probably north of 20%.

The entire Obama regime propaganda on unemployment is driven by the fact that they keep REDUCING THE SIZE OF THE WORKFORCE. People can only collect unemployment benefits for 99 weeks. As soon as a person goes beyond 99 weeks, the Obama regime declares that person as NO LONGER IN THE WORKFORCE. There are people who have been unemployed for over two years who would work if they could find anything, but the rat bastards in the Obama regime and their propaganda arm, the media, just evaporate these people from existence, and they additionally reduce the size of the labor force arbitrarily, just so they can hit whatever predetermined number Valerie Jarret, David Axelrod, Timmy Geithner and Ben Bernanke decide it is going to be. This is what they are doing on every single unemployment report. It is all as fake as a Thai Rolex. Eventually, the Obama regime will go full-Marxist stupid, drop the labor force to 52 million and declare that Great Leader Obama has delivered a FULL EMPLOYMENT ECONOMY. And anyone who dares disagree will be shot in the back of the head with one of those 450 million rounds of .40 cal that the Obama regime just ordered.

Any questions? Here is a graph that will make you smile…or not. Btw who are these people who can simply stop working? These people who are apparently frustrated and according to the government simply stop working…? How is that done?

Presidential Executive Order National Defense Resources Preparedness Is This The Beginning of the End?

UPDATE: Of course the usual sources say this is nothing to worry about…these are the same sources that are standing around telling folks that Obama is stupid, not evil. These are the same sources that seem to be bewildered by his successes so far. They tell us that this Executive Order is nothing new that other President’s did it.  Yea that should make me feel better, the President who ordered the attack on Randy Weaver and WACO and the kidnapping of Elian Gonzalez originally issued this order so everything is A-Ok. Let’s have a little photo montage of how that worked out for a few of us.

There I feel all better…End of Update 1.

Barnhardt: Why The March 16th, 2012 White House Executive Order Is Different

WHY THE NDRP E.O. OF 3/16/2012 IS DIFFERENT
POSTED BY ANN BARNHARDT – MARCH 18, AD 2012 8:46 PM MST

I’m getting really, really sick of these pundits and talking heads on the so-called “right” clucking their tongues at the unwashed masses and telling us that we’re crazy and paranoid to be the least bit concerned each and every time the Obama regime takes another stride toward totalitarianism. And it is EACH AND EVERY TIME.

Let me break it down for Ed Morrissey, and all of the other pundits in that social circle so that you can get your heads around this. We are concerned and even, dare I say it, panicked, because we can see the big picture of the Obama regime for what it is. We can take the totality of the dataset and draw not just a logical, reasoned conclusion, but a conclusion that is supported by centuries – nay millenia – of past precedent.

We are, as Patrick Henry put it, “willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and to provide for it.”

Why is the 3/16/2012 Executive Order worthy of grave concern? Simply put, because of the man and the regime who issued it. This is a man, and a regime that has done the following:

-Sent the Secretary of Defense (Leon Panetta) to Congress to put them on notice that despite the explicitness of the Constitution, the consent of the Congress to wage war will neither be solicited nor required by the Commander in Chief or his regime. The CiC and SECDEF may, if they feel like it and can find the time, MAY inform the Congress of “kinetic military actions” henceforth.

-Declared the First Amendment null and void by mandating that every American must, as a condition of legal residency in the United States, pay for abortions. Mr. Morrissey, being a Catholic, you should understand that what the Obama regime has done is demand your very soul. In order to remain corporeally “free” in the United States of America, you must enter into mortal sin, reject Jesus Christ in totality, turn your back on your Crucified Savior, excommunicate yourself from the Church, and consign your immortal soul to eternal hell. If that isn’t the prohibiting of the free exercise of religion, then nothing is or ever could be.

-Committed acts of war upon the sovereign nation of Mexico and her people, willfully arming narco-terrorists with the intent of using the optics of hundreds if not thousands of brutally murdered Mexicans in order to stir up and justify the overthrow of the Second Amendment to the Constitution. This is textbook sedition.

-Has coordinated with regime cronies in the Legislative Branch to enable the Obama regime to operate for an entire term WITH NO BUDGET WHATSOEVER. In this time, the Obama regime has looted the United States Treasury and debased the currency of the United States to the tune of SEVEN TRILLION DOLLARS, or roughly one-half the gross domestic product.

And so we don’t forget who it is that Obama was palling around with here is FBI informant Larry Grathwohl.

What is this? Are we going to war? Is a war with Iran now inevitable? What a way to insure his re-election, start a big ass war, declare martial law and simply do away with elections?

ACTUAL LETTER FROM LOU PRITCHETT FORMER VICE-PRESIDENT, SALES AND CUSTOMER DEVELOPMENT FOR PROCTOR AND GAMBLE — Pink Flamingo Bar

Written in 2009 but still valid…

ACTUAL LETTER FROM LOU PRITCHETT FORMER VICE-PRESIDENT, SALES AND CUSTOMER DEVELOPMENT FOR PROCTOR AND GAMBLE

Dear President Obama:

You are the thirteenth President under whom I have lived and unlike any of the others, you truly scare me.
You scare me because after months of exposure, I know nothing about you.
You scare me because I do not know how you paid for your expensive Ivy League education and your upscale lifestyle and housing with no visible signs of support.
You scare me because you did not spend the formative years of youth growing up in America and culturally you are not an American.
You scare me because you have never run a company or met a payroll.
You scare me because you have never had military experience, thus don’t understand it at its core.

You scare me because you lack humility and ‘class’, always blaming others.
You scare me because for over half your life you have aligned yourself with radical extremists who hate America and you refuse to publicly denounce these radicals who wish to see America fail.

You scare me because you are a cheerleader for the ‘blame America’ crowd and deliver this message abroad.
You scare me because you want to change America to a European style country where the government sector dominates instead of the private sector.
You scare me because you want to replace our health care system with a government controlled one.

You scare me because you prefer ‘wind mills’ to responsibly capitalizing on our own vast oil, coal and shale reserves.
You scare me because you want to kill the American capitalist goose that lays the golden egg which provides the highest standard of living in the world.
You scare me because you have begun to use ‘extortion’ tactics against certain banks and corporations.

You scare me because your own political party shrinks from challenging you on your wild and irresponsible spending proposals.
You scare me because you will not openly listen to or even consider opposing points of view from intelligent people.
You scare me because you falsely believe that you are both omnipotent and omniscient.

You scare me because the media gives you a free pass on everything you do.
You scare me because you demonize and want to silence the Limbaughs, Hannitys, O’Relllys and Becks who offer opposing, conservative points of view.
You scare me because you prefer controlling over governing.

Finally, you scare me because if you serve a second term I will probably not feel safe in writing a similar letter in 8 years

Global Minimum Tax…heh Absurd You Say? Watch The Republicans Meet The Democrats In The Middle Then Watch The Middle Class Get Screwed! As Usual!

Cause we have to reach across the goddamn aisle and meet these evil bastards halfway or some such. The contempt Democrats have for the middle class is astounding…breathtaking even. If the Republicans even slightly understood the evil morality behind such an awful suggestion they would win elections so far into the future you would have to go to a museum to see a Democrat. But nope, I will bet dollars to donuts the clowns, the stupid party, will not see the opportunity this affords them. Instead we will hear crap from Republicans from the mold of Bush and Romney, about how we need to help all the poor around the world cause we are so fortunate. Not a single Republican will be able to stand up on his hind legs and articulate the reason why it is offensive to suggest that Americans pay a World Tax… Republicans will also probably suggest that we import a few million more poor.

“He supports corporate tax reform that would reduce expenditures and loopholes, lower rates for people investing and creating jobs in the U.S., due so further for manufacturing, and that we need to, as we have the Buffett Rule and the individual tax reform, we need a global minimum tax so that people have the assurance that nobody is escaping doing their fair share as part of a race to the bottom or having our tax code actually subsidized and facilitate people moving their funds to tax havens," Sperling said. White House Economic Adviser: ‘We Need a Global Minimum Tax’ | The Weekly Standard

And yes I blame Democrats as a whole because the bastard spewing this nonsense is the budget advisor to Obama and was the same for Clinton so he is establishment Democrat, not some lonely crazy voice in the wilderness. Oh here is a video where this oh so serious knucklehead spews his crap.

Sicily Pitchfork Revolt – Western Media Blackout — Check Out Their Platform!

Great story linked from Survival Blog. If you are wondering why you haven’t heard anything about it check out the platform of the Pitchfork Rebellion listed at the bottom of the following snippet. Does seem like just the sort of platform that would strike fear into the hearts of politicians, bureaucrats and their defenders in the major media outlets. Video at the bottom of the post…this is the only video according to the author Jim W. Dean of Veterans Today.

Sicily Was Under Complete Blockade by Pitchfork Movement  Triggered by 40% Gas Tax Hike    

Could Sicily Provide the World with a Mass Revolt Template Against Endemic Corruption?

On January 16th, middle class Sicilians began a popular uprising appropriately called the ‘Pitchfork Movement’…’Movimento Dei Forconi’.

There are shades of the Occupy movement within it, but the core is not dissatisfied unemployed youth with no property or businesses to lose. They are middle aged and older. They know that what they have left has been targeted by their own elites to bear the economic pain.

The other difference is size. Sicily’s five million people, their grass roots people, have occupied themselves.

So of course the story caught my eye and I then checked the mainstream media sites to look at what I was sure to be some great video. Wrong! So far, there is almost nothing.

I went back to check my date…and yes it started on the 16th and took two days to shut the island down, nothing going in or out. That was almost two weeks ago and I just learned today, and I can assure you I am not a hermit.

Can you image the Occupy Wall Street people having shut Manhattan down of two weeks with no European coverage? Sure, it’s Sicily and not Manhattan…but it’s big, 25,000 sq km. That is why I used the space station feature photo.

What could corporate media possibly be afraid of? Well grab your seats, and here it is:Sicily is Rising

  • The arrest of all corrupt politicians
  • Reduction in the number of Parliamentarians
  • Removal of the provincial bureaucracy (local crooks), as most of these politicians have been there for over forty years
  • Drastic cuts in the salaries and privileges of Parliamentarians and Senators
  • Restricting politicians to only two terms in office

The Leftist Big Mouths Writing Checks Their Asses Cannot Cash! Or How The Left Chased The Earners, Screaming War, Until We Caught Them!

Corpulent gasbag Michael Moore declares war on the earners on MSNBC’s “Rachel Maddow Show”. Really…no shit? The contingency who think guns are evil are declaring war on the contingency who don’t? Does he imagine that he lives in Cuba where the opposition is not armed, pissed off and ready to end this 100 argument with the left? Did he miss the numbers of folks we have put out in the street? Does he really want to go up against a group of people who are so well disciplined that we can show up in our capital with upwards of a million people upset enough to take off of jobs, put lives on hold and pay for a trip to DC to protest and not destroy the place. Indeed we policed our own garbage and DC looked better after we left, that is discipline that is unknown to the left. Mock us at your peril…make war on us if you are suicidal.

“This is war,” Michael Moore declared last night on MSNBC’s “Rachel Maddow Show.” The porcine propagandist referred to the Wisconsin Senate’s 18-1 vote earlier in the evening in favor of legislation, supported by Gov. Scott Walker, that would strip politicians of the power to reward government employee unions for their political support by committing taxpayer money to their members’ extravagant pensions and other fringe benefits.‘This Is War’ – WSJ.com

The ugliest item of that exhibition in Wisconsin was the actions of the police. Now we know that it is possible for an entire police department to be corrupted by their union into not enforcing the law. That should worry most of you.

The Green Bay Press Gazette:
MADISON — Hundreds of off-duty police officers and deputies joined protests today against Gov. Scott Walker’s budget repair bill that would strip most collective bargaining powers from about 170,000 public employees. Police, state troopers and firefighters are exempt from Walker’s proposal, but even as some marched on the downtown Capitol Square, hundreds of other officers from around the state provided security. They came equipped with riot gear, including helmets and batons, they said, but didn’t expect trouble.

So perhaps the left is counting on the police to be guys who back up the lefts threats?

Can Our Nation Be Saved? Nope…

To expect our nation to be saved is to hope that nearly half of the population of the United States will have a revelation causing them to question their desire to press a lever that feeds them a pellet of goodness provided to them at the point of a gun by a diminishing group of producers. This hope of saving our nation becomes even more faint when you consider that even among the producers there exists those ugly creatures who, while themselves being forced at the point of a gun into paying for the pellets of others, willingly press a lever that pumps out a narcotic pill of goodness. Walter E. Williams gets it…not many do on our side.

Everyone who receives government largesse and special favors deems his needs as vital, deserving, proper and in the national interest. It is entirely unreasonable to expect a politician to honor and obey our Constitution and in the process commit political suicide. What’s even worse for our nation is that voters ousting a politician who’d refuse to bring, say, aid to higher education back to his constituents is perfectly rational. If, for example, he’s a Virginia politician and doesn’t bring higher education grants back to his constituents, it doesn’t mean Virginian taxpayers will pay a lower income tax. All that it means is that Marylanders will get the money instead. Once legalized theft begins, it pays for everyone to participate. Those who don’t will be losers.

That’s the nation’s dilemma. The most important job for people who want to spare our nation from economic collapse is not that of persuading politicians to do the right thing but to convince our fellow Americans to respect the limits of our Constitution. In his speech to Virginia’s ratifying convention, James Madison said, "Liberty lies in the hearts of men and women; when it dies there, no constitution, no law, no court can save it; no constitution, no law, no court can even do much to help it."

Break Out the Cold Weather Gear…

Just when you thought it was safe to go outdoors we discovered that it was gonna get REAL REAL COOL outdoors. How are your disaster preparations going? Feeling smug that you have a few months of food put away? Got extra boots to last a year or so? Bought yourself some of those cute little aluminum foil space bankys to keep you warm when you get stuck? Well preppers better start upping your game cause if these guys are right everyone north of the Mason Dixon line are gonna be under a WHOLE bunch ice fairly soon! Gotta tell the wife that we can cancel that trip to go snow skiing…fairly soon we will be able to ski down the Mississippi River Bridge in downtown Baton Rouge!

Sun entering an extended "hibernation period"
According to Casey, “The Earth typically makes adjustments in major temperature spikes within two to three years. In this case as we cool down from El Nino, we are dealing with the combined effects of this planetary thermodynamic normalization and the influence of the more powerful underlying global temperature downturn brought on by the solar hibernation. Both forces will present the first opportunity since the period of Sun-caused global warming period ended to witness obvious harmful agricultural impacts of the new cold climate. Analysis shows that food and crop derived fuel will for the first time, become threatened in the next two and a half years. Though the SSRC does not get involved with short term weather prediction, it would not be unusual to see these ill-effects this year much less within the next 30 months.”

Other scientists concur and some see the speed at which the temperatures will drop as frightening.
Casy’s organization has been at the forefront of the climate change controversy, correctly predicting in advance three important changes in the climate that many others missed: the end of global warming cycle (1999), a long term drop in the Earth’s temperatures (starting in 2006 to 2007) the unsettling prospect of an historic contraction of the Sun’s energy resulting in a never-before-seen solar hibernation. The hibernation is now recognized by NASA’s Long Range Solar Forecast through 2022 and as well as the stunning slowdown of sun’s activity.

Experts: Food and fuel shortages imminent as new Ice Age dawns – by Terrence Aym – Page 2 – Helium

So if the monetary collapse doesn’t get us, the solar flare will, and if either of those don’t get us then a terrorist EMP will but if it doesn’t, then we will be overrun by billions of third world refugees as our politicians seek to replace us with compliant, reliable voters who will not be asked to work, or learn the language but they must merely vote for this or that political thug. But if none of those get us then at least we can feel comforted by the fact that it looks like Putin is gonna be a crazed dictator and that Iran really does believe it is the end of times and intends to hasten it with nuclear weapons. Then the ice will come and cover all of our foolishness…

Which brings me to one of my all time favorite quotes…

But not to worry because our politicians are HARD at work…which brings me to another of my favorite movie quotes. Mel Brooks gets it exactly right in this video…EXACTLY!

Despotism Made Easy

Why whatever benchmarks the government makes for itself are a waste of time. This is from a terrific blog post “Despotism Made Easy”.

Words that have a specific meaning are not reform friendly. A specific meaning can lead to benchmarks in which an action or concept is assessed for its connection to reality or productivity. Real reformers know that all the action resides in the process, not in the results. Words that have a universally accepted meaning enable the public to make determinations that are independent of the reformer’s vision. Worse yet, it can foreshadow the emergence of unauthorized solutions. Don’t allow your reforms to be compromised by viable alternatives.Depotism Made Easy: Despotism Made Easy

Benchmarks schemchmarks…bunch of baloney. Unemployment, Inflation, Money Supply, Number of Terrorists Stopped, Number of Items Found by TSA, Number of Boobs Squeezed, Children Groped, Global Temps, Local Temps, Oil Supply, Gold Supply, and the rest of the bullshit the government quotes as statistics to us is all contorted by their twisting of the language and whatever truth is left after that is erased by their twisting of the methods used to acquire the numbers. For example we have redefined Unemployment several times since the great depression…so comparing this current government disaster to that former government disaster is impossible. But the media, the enemy, still does it every single day. Why? Because it mollifies you if you believe that things aren’t as bad as it was during the last time the government screwed everything up you are less likely to be out in the streets wanting to pour tar down the throat of some asshole politician who is busy funneling your money, stolen in taxes, to his cronies.

1000 Point Drop DOW!?! Greeks Burning Greeks! Wall Street Bonuses Out of Control! Time For The Fed To Bailout Europe…Yea Baby Give Me More!

With Obama’s apparent strategy leaning towards exploring every single way to collapse the United States, it isn’t a surprise that we are bailing out Europe. Ah, all the wonderful leftists love to crow about this or that European fashion, ridiculous pensions, life time employment, huge bureaucracies, nanny state, check, check, check, check and check, leftists in the US want all of that! Don’t worry though because it is the rare conservative indeed who will speak out against the “safety net” indeed finding a so-called right wing politician who will admit forthrightly that he intends to cut spending is akin to finding a leftist questioning the idea that someone’s “needs” trumps my freedom. (This makes Conservative NJ Governor Chris Christie a real up and comer and Ron Paul a saint) We are going straight to hell and the goddamn hand basket is in flames! Anyways Zero Hedge as usual is all the way around the story. Really if you aren’t reading Zero Hedge, The Market Ticker ®, Financial Armageddon, Calculated Risk, Dollar Collapse and a few others then all of what is happening is a big ass shock to you. Being surprised is only fun for your birthday.

We are rapidly approaching a point where it simply won’t matter whether the politicians and their needy minions want to cut this or that “safety net”…we have outgrown our ability to pay for all we have promised. As economist Robert Samuelson points out in a recent article we are witnessing the Welfare State’s Death Spiral. And this European Bailout is the sort of dumb move, that will accelerate our final reckoning. What is hilarious and indicative of Obama’s desire to destroy this country is that at the VERY the same time we rushing to adopt all of the sorts of policies that put Europe in that position. Weee!

Well guess what: with about $500 billion in liquidity swaps about to hit the asset side of the ledger (that’s a conservative estimate based on the last time the Fed went full bore on bailing out Europe, and sorry, that European bailout does not come cheap), Excess Reserves (fed liabilities) are about to skyrocket by a comparable amount to match the assets. And here is the double whammy: $500 billion in new excess reserves earning 0.25% for holder banks, means US banks are about to earn an additional $1.25 billion a year risk-free courtesy of US taxpayers, who already are getting the shaft by paying more for gas thanks to the privilege of having bailed out Europe and drowned the world in new and unprecedented gobs of excess liquidity! Simply stated, the Greek “bailout” is a roundabout way of funneling over another extra billion to US banks! Direct cost to US taxpayers to bailout Europe via IMF: $50 billion; Indirect cost to fund incremental bank excess reserves: $1.25 billion; The joy of being raped daily by the Fed-Wall Street complex and assuring another year of record Wall Street bonuses: priceless. Some things money can’t buy. For everything else there are trillions in Federal Reserve Notes appearing each and every day out of thin air. Fed Pretends It Is Preparing To Soak Up Excess Reserves, Even As Currency Swaps Are Sure To Add About $500 Billion To Fed’s Assets | zero hedge (emphasis mine)
