Negatively affecting the data were lower state and local government spending, private inventory investment and, believe it or not, federal government spending.

How anyone could be surprised by this is beyond me. The Fed was admitting that the consequences of QE rendered it less attractive as an option as far back as May 2011.Moreover, the last six months have shown the Fed to be relying heavily on verbal intervention rather than direct monetary intervention. Every FOMC meeting (and any time the market takes a dive) some Fed official steps forward and promises that the Fed stands ready to help if needed.The reasons for this are three fold: #1)  Why bother with monetary intervention when you can get the same effect from verbal intervention? #2)  The Fed is too politically toxic now to simply unveil a massive new monetary scheme without a Crisis hitting first. #3)  The Fed is well aware of the consequences of QE (higher food and gas prices) and while it focuses on CPI as the measure of inflation, the political pressure engendered by higher costs of living are certainly on the Feds radar. In plain terms, the bar for more QE is set much, much higher than the vast majority of analysts realize. The reason is that the Fed can no longer simply prime up the printing presses if the economy takes a dip.  , Median Single Family Home Price in Terms of Gold Jan 27th, 2012 (Chart of the Day) Severely depressed real estate prices continue to be a concern for investors. For some perspective on the magnitude of the decline in home prices, todays chart presents the median single-family home price divided by the price of one ounce of gold. This results in the home / gold ratio or the cost of the median single-family home in ounces of gold. For example, it currently takes a relatively low 105 ounces of gold to buy the median single-family home. This is dramatically less than the 601 ounces it took back in 2001. When priced in gold, the median single-family home is down over 80% from its 2001 peak, remains well within the confines of a six-year accelerated downtrend and remains very near its 1980 trough. http://albertpeia.com/housegold.gif  ,  The Man Without A Plan  http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com http://albertpeia.com/omanwithoutaplan.htm  Barack Obama is a man without a plan.  , Newt Gingrich promises to build a moon colony by 2020; make it a U.S. state [ Wow!

Using Mar-12 futures contracts, which closed on Friday at 130-08, we would aim for a target of 126-00 and stops on a close above 132-00."" This naturally generated a healthy dose of skepticism by Zero Hedge: " As a reminder, don't do what Goldman says, do what it does, especially when one looks the firm's Top 6 trades for 2012, of which 5 are losing money, and 2 have been stopped out less than a month into the year." Sure enough, anyone who did the opposite, i.e. buying the 10 year, has now returned +1.48% in three days

January 27, 2012 | By Maira Sutton and Parker Higgins

We Have Every Right to Be Furious About ACTA

If theres one thing that encapsulates whats wrong with the way government functions today, ACTA is it. You wouldnt know it from the name, but the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement is a plurilateral agreement designed to broaden and extend existing intellectual property (IP) enforcement laws to the Internet. While it was only negotiated between a few countries,1 it has global consequences. First because it will create new rules for the Internet, and second, because its standards will be applied to other countries through the U.S.s annual Special 301 process. Negotiated in secret, ACTA bypassed checks and balances of existing international IP norm-setting bodies, without any meaningful input from national parliaments, policymakers, or their citizens. Worse still, the agreement creates a new global institution, an "ACTA Committee" to oversee its implementation and interpretation that will be made up of unelected members with no legal obligation to be transparent in their proceedings. Both in substance and in process, ACTA embodies an outdated top-down, arbitrary approach to government that is out of step with modern notions of participatory democracy.

The EU and 22 of its 27 member states signed ACTA yesterday in Tokyo. This news is neither momentous nor surprising. This is but the latest step in more than three years of non-transparent negotiations. In December, the Council of the European Unionone of the European Unions two legislative bodies, composed of executives from the 27 EU member statesadopted ACTA during a completely unrelated meeting on agriculture and fisheries. Of course, this is not the end of the story in the EU. For ACTA to be adopted as EU law, the European Parliament has to vote on whether to accept or reject it.

In the U.S., there are growing concerns about the constitutionality of negotiating ACTA as a sole executive agreement.  This is not just a semantic argument. If ACTA were categorized as a treaty, it would have to be ratified by the Senate. But the USTR and the Administration have consistently maintained that ACTA is a sole executive agreement negotiated under the Presidents power. On that theory, it does not need Congressional approval and thus ACTA already became binding on the US government when Ambassador Ron Kirk signed it last October.

But leading US Constitutional Scholars disagree. Professors Jack Goldsmith and Larry Lessig, questioned the Constitutionality of the executive agreement classification in 2010:

The president has no independent constitutional authority over intellectual property or communications policy, and there is no long historical practice of making sole executive agreements in this area. To the contrary, the Constitution gives primary authority over these matters to Congress, which is charged with making laws that regulate foreign commerce and intellectual property.2

(And by the way, we agree [pdf].)

Senator Ron Wyden has been asking these questions for years, first demanding an explanation from USTR ambassador Ron Kirk, President Obama, and now the administrations top international law expert Harold Koh. The distinction between executive agreement and treaty should not be lost on this administration: as a Senator, Vice President Joe Biden used the same argument to require the Bush administration to seek Senate approval for an arms reduction agreement.

Public interest groups and informed politicians have long lamented these problems with ACTA. But the impact of dubious backroom law-drafting is getting fresh attention in light of the powerful global opposition movement that has emerged out of last weeks Internet blackout protests. Activists and netizens all around the world have woken up to the dangers of overbroad enforcement law proposals drafted by monopoly industry lobbyists, and rushed into law through strategic lobbying by the same corporate interests that backed SOPA and PIPA. Tens of thousands are protesting in the streets in Poland as their ambassador signed the agreement in Tokyo. The EU Parliaments website and others have come under attack for their involvement in these laws. The Member of the European Parliament who was appointed to be the rapporteur for ACTA in the European Parliament, Kader Arif, quit yesterday in protest. In a statement he said:

I want to denounce in the strongest possible manner the entire process that led to the signature of this agreement: no inclusion of civil society organisations, a lack of transparency from the start of the negotiations, repeated postponing of the signature of the text without an explanation being ever given, exclusion of the EU Parliament's demands that were expressed on several occasions in our assembly

This agreement might have major consequences on citizens' lives, and still, everything is being done to prevent the European Parliament from having its say in this matter. That is why today, as I release this report for which I was in charge, I want to send a strong signal and alert the public opinion about this unacceptable situation. I will not take part in this masquerade.

We couldnt have said it better ourselves. ACTA may have been signed by public officials, but its crystal clear that they are not representing the public interest.

It is now up to the collective will of the public to decide what to do next, and for individuals to ask themselves what they want their government to look like. Do you believe in democracy? Do you believe that laws should be made to reflect our collective best interests, formulated through an open transparent process? One that allows everyone, from experts to civil society members, to analyze, question and probe an agreement that will lead to laws that will impact potentially billions of lives? If we dont do anything now, this agreement is going to crawl itself into power. With the future at stake like this, its never too late to fight.

For those in the U.S., you can demonstrate your opposition to the dubious decision to negotiate ACTA as a sole executive agreement to bypass proper congressional review by signing this petition on the whitehouse.gov website, demanding the Administration submit ACTA to the Senate for approval.

EFF will continue to monitor ACTA's global implementation and watch for efforts to use ACTA to broaden US enforcement powers.’

Long-term factors weigh on middle class Economists say President Obamas plans for reviving the middle class and lessening inequality will go against decades-old trends that will make it difficult to build a higher quality of life for many Americans. (Washington Post) [ Yes, indeed they do! And, if there’s anyone who knows about such and has played a role in make it so, it’s certainly wobama. http://albertpeia.com/30statsmidclassdying.com  30 STATISTICS THAT SHOW THAT THE MIDDLE CLASS IS DYING RIGHT IN FRONT OF OUR EYES AS WE ENTER 2012 The Economic Collapse http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com

Once upon a time, the United States had the largest and most vibrant middle class that the world has ever seen.  Unfortunately, that is rapidly changing.  The statistics that you are about to read prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the U.S. middle class is dying right in front of our eyes as we enter 2012.  The decline of the middle class is not something that has happened all of a sudden.  Rather, there has been a relentless grinding down of the middle class over the last several decades.  Millions of our jobs have been shipped overseas, the rate of inflation has far outpaced the rate that our wages have grown, and overwhelming debt has choked the financial life out of millions of American families.  Every single day, more Americans fall out of the middle class and into poverty.  In fact, more Americans fell into poverty last year than has ever been recorded before.  The number of middle class jobs and middle class neighborhoods continues to decline at a staggering pace.  As I have written about previously, America as a whole is getting poorer as a nation, and as this happens wealth is becoming increasingly concentrated at the very top of the income scale.  This is not how capitalism is supposed to work, and it is not good for America.

Today I went over to Safeway and I was absolutely appalled at the prices.  I honestly don't know how most families make it these days.  I ended up paying over 140 dollars for about two-thirds of a cart of food.  That was after I "saved" 67 dollars on sale items.

When the cost of the basic things that we need - housing, food, gas, electricity - go up faster than our incomes do, that means that we are getting poorer.

Sadly, if you look at the long-term numbers, some very clear negative trends emerge....

-The number of good jobs continues to decrease.

-The rate of inflation continues to outpace the rate that our wages are going up.

-American consumers are going into almost unbelievable amounts of debt.

-The number of Americans that are considered to be "poor" continues to grow.

-The number of Americans that are forced to turn to the government for financial assistance continues to go up.

After you read the information below, it should become abundantly clear that the U.S. middle class is in a whole heap of trouble.

The following are 30 statistics that show that the middle class is dying right in front of our eyes as we enter 2012....

#1 Today, only 55.3 percent of all Americans between the ages of 16 and 29 have jobs.

#2 In the United States today, there are 240 million working age people.  Only about 140 million of them are working.

#3 According to CareerBuilder, only 23 percent of American companies plan to hire more employees in 2012.

#4 Since the year 2000, the United States has lost 10% of its middle class jobs.  In the year 2000 there were about 72 million middle class jobs in the United States but today there are only about 65 million middle class jobs.

#5 According to the New York Times, approximately 100 million Americans are either living in poverty or in "the fretful zone just above it".

#6 According to that same article in the New York Times, 34 percent of all elderly Americans are living in poverty or "near poverty", and 39 percent of all children in America are living in poverty or "near poverty".

#7 In 1984, the median net worth of households led by someone 65 or older was 10 times larger than the median net worth of households led by someone 35 or younger.  Today, the median net worth of households led by someone 65 or older is 47 times larger than the median net worth of households led by someone 35 or younger.

#8 Since the year 2000, incomes for U.S. households led by someone between the ages of 25 and 34 have fallen by about 12 percent after you adjust for inflation.

#9 The total value of household real estate in the U.S. has declined from $22.7 trillion in 2006 to $16.2 trillion today.  Most of that wealth has been lost by the middle class.

#10 Many formerly great manufacturing cities are turning into ghost towns.  Since 1950, the population of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania has declined by more than 50 percent.  In Dayton, Ohio 18.9 percent of all houses now stand empty.

#11 Since 1971, consumer debt in the United States has increased by a whopping 1700%.

#12 The number of pages of federal tax rules and regulations has increased by 18,000% since 1913.  The wealthy know how to avoid taxes, but most of those in the middle class do not.

#13 The number of Americans that fell into poverty (2.6 million) set a new all-time record last year and extreme poverty (6.7%) is at the highest level ever measured in the United States.

#14 According to one study, between 1969 and 2009 the median wages earned by American men between the ages of 30 and 50 dropped by 27 percent after you account for inflation.

#15 According to U.S. Representative Betty Sutton, America has lost an average of 15 manufacturing facilities a day over the last 10 years.  During 2010 it got even worse.  Last year, an average of 23 manufacturing facilities a day shut down in the United States.

#16 Back in 1980, less than 30% of all jobs in the United States were low income jobs.  Today, more than 40% of all jobs in the United States are low income jobs.

#17 Most Americans are scratching and clawing and doing whatever they can to make a living these days.  Half of all American workers now earn $505 or less per week.

#18 Food prices continue to rise at a very brisk pace.  The price of beef is up 9.8% over the past year, the price of eggs is up 10.2% over the past year and the price of potatoes is up 12% over the past year.

#19 Electricity bills in the United States have risen faster than the overall rate of inflation for five years in a row.

#20 The average American household will have spent a staggering $4,155 on gasoline by the end of 2011.

#21 If inflation was measured the exact same way that it was measured back in 1980, the rate of inflation in the United States would be well over 10 percent.

#22 If the number of Americans considered to be "looking for work" was the same today as it was back in 2007, the "official" unemployment rate put out by the U.S. government would be up to 11 percent.

#23 According to the Student Loan Debt Clock, total student loan debt in the United States will surpass the 1 trillion dollar mark at some point in 2012.  Most of that debt is owed by members of the middle class.

#24 Incredibly, more than one out of every seven Americans is on food stamps and one out of every four American children is on food stamps at this point.

#25 Since Barack Obama took office, the number of Americans on food stamps has increased by 14.3 million.

#26 In 2010, 42 percent of all single mothers in the United States were on food stamps.

#27 In 1970, 65 percent of all Americans lived in "middle class neighborhoods".  By 2007, only 44 percent of all Americans lived in "middle class neighborhoods".

#28 According to a recent report produced by Pew Charitable Trusts, approximately one out of every three Americans that grew up in a middle class household has slipped down the income ladder.

#29 In the United States today, the wealthiest one percent of all Americans have a greater net worth than the bottom 90 percent combined.

#30 The poorest 50 percent of all Americans now collectively own just 2.5% of all the wealth in the United States.

Sadly, this article could have been much, much longer.  There are so many other statistics about the middle class that could have been included.

For even more insane economic numbers that show just how dramatically the U.S. economy is declining, just check out this article: "50 Economic Numbers From 2011 That Are Almost Too Crazy To Believe".

What is even more frightening is that this is about as good as things are going to get.

We have already had "the economic recovery", such as it was.

Now we are heading for another major financial crisis.  Just like back in 2008, the entire world is going to feel the pain.

But we never recovered from the last financial crisis.  We are like a boxer that is not ready to handle another blow.

And who is going to get hurt the most?  It will be those at the bottom of the food chain of course.  Tens of millions of Americans that are living in poverty will experience a massive amount of pain, and millions more Americans will fall out of the middle class and will join them.

If you have a good job, do your best to hang on to it.  If you don't have a job, do your best to get one while you still can.  Jobs will become very precious in the years ahead.

But also try to do what you can to become less dependent on the system.  Almost anyone can find ways to make some extra money on the side.  Yes, it will likely cut into your television time.  If someday you were to lose your job you don't want to be left with zero income.

Right now, the U.S. economy is slowly dying and as time goes by the number of middle class Americans it will be able to support will continue to decrease.

Yes, it is like a perverse game of musical chairs, but this is where we are at.

I encourage all of you to think about how you plan to make it through the collapse that is ahead.

Sticking our heads in the sand and pretending that everything is going to be okay is not going to help anyone.

But if we all start planning for the storm that is ahead, and if we get others around us to wake up as well, that is going to do a great deal of good in the long run.’

Indeed, post-Eisenhower, and certainly post-Kennedy-assassination / coup d’etat, NASA was all military / military industrial complex (moreover, someone knowledgeable about such matters said essentially that in explaining to my surprise the transition to the shuttle program it was said there was greater military application in same). In any event, Russia’s been doing quite a bit of ‘heavy lifting’ vis-à-vis the space station, but not inordinately so. All I can say with certainty is that the universe beyond this solar system is forever protected / insulated. The fact is, they never set foot on the moon; and, in light of the pervasive corruption in and defacto bankruptcy of the nation, their perpetual wars toward making a hell on earth militate against anything but trying to do even just a little bit better (for a start), terrestrially.   NASA wants mission to bring Martian rocks to Earth (AP) Why?

Economy makes election a nail-biter Few of the proposals laid out by the president Tuesday would jump-start the economy before November. Once again, long-winded on rhetorics but short on specifics (WP) [ No its not the economy that makes the election a nail-biter. Rather, its wobamas long-winded on rhetorics but short on specifics typical b***s*** that makes for this a nail-biter. No specifics? Indeed! From wobama speak we can surmise from this hedge that at least he wouldnt be vulnerable to the legitimate accusations that his actions (and non-actions) belie his words as last time around. As for the economy, its all that bad and worse! Are George Soros, The IMF And The World Bank Purposely Trying To Scare The Living Daylights Out Of Us?  [ Short answer: No! The crisis is real! ]   http://albertpeia.com/diretimesahead.htm .

[GOP reactions reflect party divisions Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels makes official response, but Romney and Cain also offer their takes. (WP) [ Although I didnt listen to / watch wobamas b***s*** session (his words are absolutely worthless and as last time around, belied by his misguided deeds), I did pay attention to the intelligent, succinct, poignant Republican Response by Mitch Daniels, Gov. Indiana, and confidently say, if he so chooses the path, he will prospectively be President. A way his formidable background and talents could more quickly be brought to the fore would be a Ron Paul / Mitch Daniels ticket which would be a Mitch Daniels candidacy then Presidency in 2016. This would give the nation and the world time to breath while recovering from wobama way of  failings / missteps. You cant ignore Oliver Stones sagacious opinion in such matters as these. ( Oliver Stone: I Would Vote For Ron Paul Over Obama  Steve Watson | Hes the only one whos saying anything intelligent about the world. ) His great film anthology speaks for itself and has caught and treated some of the most significant, recent american historical breakpoints.]

Obamas best surrogate Gingrich boosts the presidents reelection prospects. (Washington Post) [ Indeed, that’s what’s being said across the board. You can count on Mr. Milbank having his fingers crossed for a slimy newt candidacy. Snooty newty, literally a self-proclaimed ‘revolutionary’. Che Gingrich! I can almost envision the posters / t-shirts. It’s really quite amazing / tragic! Narcissistic personality disorder? Could be.

Its titled, poetically: “‘I think Grandiose Thoughts A Selection of Speaker Gingrichs Thoughts Over The Years.

It cites some of the most breathtakingly self-congratulatory statements that Ive ever seen from a politician, and that is a high bar.

Last month: I think I am a transformational figure. (Shouldnt there have been a footnote crediting Barack Obama with that line?)

In 1985, when he was a backbencher in the Reagan G.O.P., to put it generously: I want to shift the entire planet. And Im doing it I represent real power. (Maybe that explains global warming.)

In 1992, when he was on the verge of becoming Speaker of the House, one of the most non-revolutionary things you can do: I am essentially a revolutionary.

And in 2005: I first talked about [saving civilization] in August of 1958. Its fairly impressive that Mr. Gingrich remembers the exact date he first mentioned saving civilization. Too bad its now been almost 54 years and he still hasnt done it.

All politicians love to compare themselves to previous politicians, and Republicans especially love to compare themselves to Abraham Lincoln, whose Republican Party, of course, had no connection to the current one apart from the name. But Mr. Gingrich truly excels at this, as in all other matters egotistical.

The Romney news release, which is carefully sourced, contains examples of Mr. Gingrich likening himself to Abraham Lincoln, Ronald Reagan, Margaret Thatcher (another revolutionary, essentially), Woodrow Wilson, Henry Clay, Charles de Gaulle (arent Republicans supposed to disdain the French?), William Wallace (from the movie Braveheart, not the actual William Wallace); the Duke of Wellington (presumably not for the beef or the boots), Thomas Edison, Vince Lombardi, the Wright brothers, and any old Viking. And Moses…’ [In this respect, viz., potentially suffering from a narcissistic personality disorder, he’s not so different from wobama the b for b***s***]: ‘… During a recent 60 Minutes interview, Barack Obama said that only 3 presidents in U.S. history accomplished more than he did during the first two years of his presidency.

The issue here is not going be a list of accomplishments. As you said yourself, Steve, you know, I would put our legislative and foreign policy accomplishments in our first two years against any president with the possible exceptions of Johnson, F.D.R., and Lincoln just in terms of what weve gotten done in modern history. But, you know, but when it comes to the economy, weve got a lot more work to do.

Krauthammer: The GOP’s suicide march (Washington Post) [ Wow! Mr. Krauthammer must have been having a ‘bad hair day’. Suicide march? I don’t think so. I even was compelled to look up his (vaulted mis)use of ‘manichean’ (definitions infra) in his rather grimly devised piece. Whew! Time to break out the ‘sackcloth and ashes’. I truly have never seen Mr. Krauthammer so ‘off his game’. If one can’t appreciate the ultimate ‘raison d’etre’ for the occupy movement vis-à-vis the egregious, gargantuan, still unprosecuted wall street frauds, clearly, that person’s not been paying attention; and, to ignore same is to do so at the nation’s peril [ Obama flush with financial sector cash The president has managed to raise more money this year from the sector than any GOP contender.

I often point to the stupidity of americans generally, but not so dumb to ignore the most basic math coupled with common sense relative to these nation-debilitating, unjustifiable frauds, boondoggles. At this juncture I feel obliged to state that I haven’t voted for decades (kind of along the lines of ‘George Carlin’s famed defense of his own non-voting record which he justified by reminding all that Hitler came to power in a full, free, democratic election by a landslide’). Yet, on all the ‘big ones’, I’ve always taken a prior position based on the ‘reality’ of the prospective result. May I humbly say, I’ve never, ever been wrong. These are ‘debates’ …’words’… geared toward positioning one or another for the opportunity of the ‘big job’. To expect anything less than at least a ‘little bit of juglar’ is a bit naïve. So calm down Mr. Krauthammer; nothing’s been lost. Testament to Mr. Krauthammer being ‘off his game’ here is his positing of ‘wobama the b for b***s***’ as being smart. Au contraire Mr. Krauthammer! Wobama’s quite dumb! If smart, wobama would have done as he said he would do last campaign, and the nation would have been far better off for it! Parenthetically, look to who’s pushing the censorship bills; now, that’s political desperation! To cheer Mr. Krauthammer up, there’s also that egregious ‘Keystone’ misstep which even The Post’s Editorial Board felt compelled to point out. We’ll just chalk this up to ‘(temporary) situational anxiety disorder’.

We’re discontented with candidates that are rented

With grand promises that they’ve invented

 

America’s now a place that’s no oasis

Where life’s weary chase is always in crisis

 

Far from the cries of crime victims in the city,

Where flowers pretty caress the streams

 

Sarcozy to hide in, and war monger side-by-side in

Don’t let lobotomy joe bidin your dreams.

 

Slimy newt flat on his high knee, more war plans from Romney,

Chinese tea for two, and two for Chinese tea,

 

Me for who and you show me, al one!

So I have invented my own.

caress the streams.

Cozy to hide in, to love side-by-side in.
Don't let it abide in my dreams.

Just me for you and you for me, alone! …’

ComPost : The stupidest attack on Romney yet  (Washington Post) Mais oui, il est tres stupide, que triton visqueux (But yes, he is very stupid, that slimy newt). I personally took (the mandatory foreign language grade 7-10) French and even brushed up here in LA while contemplating a move to Geneva, Switzerland, Europe, which of course has obviously changed along with EU prospects, the EU having so foolishly gone along to get along with the now fallen american way (I’m really not good with languages, being ‘hard-wired’ with my initial language, ie., my facebook response to query, ‘I took French; but I have no facility with languages (including computer programming languages) other than what I initially learned and some code (html, etc.). I think I should invest in one of those electronic translators.’). Even Frank’s  angrily chiming in with his displeasure with snooty newty from beyond :

Ron Paul’s achievement After a quarter-century in the wilderness, he’s within reach of putting his cause on the map. (Washington Post) [ At first blush, I thought by this headline this article to be Mr. Krauthammer’s vailed attempt at sarcasm. After all, as a jewish man himself, I’ve yet to see him take a position that could in any way be even remotely antithetical to israeli interests; and yet, one would have to be blind and dumb not to to realize such zionist / pro-israeli policies as foolishly adopted by the u.s. have been unequivocally antithetical to american interests. The testament to the merger of contraindicated american ‘interests’ with selfishly construed israeli interests was that display of wildly cheering israeli agents on the banks of the palisades in Weehawken, n.j. at the sight of the burning / exploding / symmetrically imploding trade towers (including bldg. 7) on 911 (contriving such a ‘pearl harbor event’ a neocon / military industrial complex / israeli wet dream come true. Later history might even write this as the ‘albatross incident’ for america). The great but substantially underrated President General Eisenhower warned of the military industrial complex whose interests and welfare programs have merged with those of the militant illegal-nuke totin’ israelis whose interests suddenly merged into puppet-in-chief wobama despite wobama’s campaign rhetoric to the contrary upon which he was elected. Parenthetically, President Eisenhower never took any crap from the terrorist begin / israelis in contravention of American interests in the region.  I truly don’t know what being a libertarian means; but I do know that a junkie/thief/methamphetamine addict from virginia who stole some (very valuable to me) items from me here in Socal had a father who was one and he professed being one of sorts himself though questionable (ie., his ‘phony’ business card with an ‘in God we trust’ logo, etc.). The importance of Ron Paul is to point out the unsustainability of ‘same old / same old’ without reason, purpose, advantage to any but the very greedy short-sighted few, though substantially detrimental to the nation. After the cold war’s end, with peace dividend to grace clinton, the substantial achievement of Reagan / Gorbachev, if america had literally ‘done nothing’ rather than having embarked upon the ‘money-eating / war-profiteering’ adventurism along with ‘that engagement thing’ with communist china so hailed by former ambassador to china / cia man bush, no nation could have caught up to and passed america; some and then many have and are destined to do so (what the heck, decades at best anyway). The fed has failed all mandates for which it supposedly exists. They’ve literally helped consummate for the intended benefit of the few, frauds in the trillions, to the substantial detriment of the vast majority and the nation itself (among other culpable acts, ie., $4 trillion missing at the new york fed, over-printing of  the ever more worthless dollars, etc.). For the israeli lobby, reality is a frightful thing. For pervasively corrupt, defacto bankrupt america, reality is also a frightful thing. 

Mitt Romneys capitalism His record sparks an overdue debate about the system. (Washington Post) [ What system? The american ‘system’ in a nutshell is ‘fraud’ as in fraudulent as in to get ahead in america you must become a criminal, an accomplice, and be sure not to show any scruples whatsoever in so doing. The so-called laws are at best arbitrarily enforced if at all (and used most often to silence both conscience and opposition). Keep quiet (cover-up), you’ll be rewarded (infra); open your mouth or rock the sinking uss titanic and you’ll pay dearly. That’s the so-called ‘system’; with huge government-protected (ie., wall street, etc. ) frauds (infra), government illegal drug distribution (infra), illegal wars / war profiteering / war crimes, etc. (infra), all in plain sight. The only question concerning Romney’s capitalism given his background and the few opportunities for legitimate work in america is whether what he did was legal. There are numerous fortunes being made on wall street by illegal means, still unprosecuted, among other sordid fraudulent schemes and worse, in and out of u.s. politics, including the contrived wars, war crimes, war profiteering, etc., with those cogs in the military industrial complex so warned against by the great but substantially underrated President General Eisenhower profiting exorbitantly.

. Barack Obama: The Naked Emperor Shocking but true revelations from David Icke|  infra ‘...Obama is just more of the same, a big smile with strings attached, and controlled completely by those that chose him, trained him, sold him and provided his record funding, kept his many skeletons under wraps, like the gay sex and crack cocaine .. Larry Sinclair (from affidavit: 1. Who is Ron Allen that claims to be with your Presidential camp, who is alleged to claim that someone claiming to represent me called asking for $100,000, to keep me from coming forward about our (Obama and I) November 1999 encounter of sex and cocaine use?), ... Obama is just another Banksters' moll prostituting himself .., and that's why he supported the grotesque bail-out of the banking system and why he will always put their interests before the people. His financial advisors are straight from the Wall Street 'A' list, including Paul Adolph Volker (Trilateral Commission, Council on Foreign Relations, Bilderberg Group), the head of the Federal Reserve from 1979 to 1987 and Illuminati to his fingertips. Obama has made him head of the Economic Recovery Advisory Board, which is dominated by insiders, including its staff director and chief economist, Austan Goolsbee, a close Obama associate from the University of Chicago. Goolsbee is an initiate of the infamous Illuminati Skull and Bones Society at Yale University, which also includes Boy and Father Bush. It was Goolsbee who told the Canadian government not to worry about Obama's attacks on the economic effects of free trade agreements because his words were just to win votes in the election campaign. Another Wall Street insider, the Zionist Timothy Geithner (Bilderberg Group, Trilateral Commission, Council on Foreign Relations), was appointed by Obama to be his Treasury Secretary. Geithner was the President of the New York Federal Reserve Bank, the most powerful in the private Federal Reserve cartel that masquerades as America's central bank, and he is a former employee of both the Council on Foreign Relations and the appalling Kissinger Associates. Obama's Treasury team locks into the inner circle around the Zionist Robert Rubin, the Director and Senior Counselor of Citigroup, co-chairman of the Council on Foreign Relations, and economic advisor to Obama. Rubin, a member of the Illuminati Bilderberg Group, was the man behind Citigroup's strategy of expanding its risk in debt markets which forced it to be rescued by taxpayers' money. The very people who caused the financial crisis are being appointed by Obama to decide how to respond to it (more taxpayers' money for them and their friends)’

 

Romneys money problem His nomination may be near, but his routine is getting a bit rich. (Washington Post) [ Yet another of those ‘aw come on wobama lover Mr. Milbank moments’. I mean really. Wobama’s are as ‘rich’, and disingenuous at best to say otherwise, and his routine, namely b***s***, is past ‘getting old’. After all, wobama can’t run on his clear record of failure as bush failure 3 with what turns out as before, b***s*** alone. The problem is that there’s nothing that can be said of the republican offerings (except Ron Paul) for which it can’t be said of wobama that he’s been there, done that in contravention of all prior campaign promises, to the substantial detriment of the nation. Even his new ‘displacement’ as chief of staff’s a ‘wall street inside man’ (Drudgereport: FLASHBACK: Daley planned to leave AFTER election...  ,  Michelle (a black) distressed about power of 'white Irish Catholic'...  ,  New Obama Chief of Staff: Former Hedge Fund Exec at CITI, Made Money off Mortgage Defaults... (even Castro’s correct on this obvous point regarding the duplicitous wobama ) Castro: 'Robot' better than Obama, Republicans...  . Obama missing the mark on defense? President Obamas defense strategy and the assumptions underlying it need a closer look. (Washington Post) [ I really don’t know what the editorial board really is; but that’s the only reason I’m commenting here (on this one) given their most recent, shocking ‘contributions’ to the discourse. First, let’s begin with a  fundamental reality; viz., america is hopelessly and insurmountably defacto bankrupt (34 Shocking Facts About U.S. Debt That Should Set America On Fire With Anger  http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com   We have all been lied to.  For decades, the leaders of both major political parties have promised us that they can fix our current system and that they can get our national debt under control.  As the 2012 election approaches, they are making all kinds of wild promises once again.  Well you know what?  It is all a giant sham.  The United States has gotten into so much debt that there will be no coming back from this.  The current system is irretrievably broken Professor Laurence J. Kotlikoff, the U.S. is facing a "fiscal gap" of over 200 trillion dollars in the future.  The following is a brief excerpt from a recent article that he did for CNN...The government's total indebtedness -- its fiscal gap -- now stands at $211 trillion.. The fiscal gap is the difference, measured in present value, between all projected future spending obligations -- including our huge defense expenditures and massive entitlement programs, as well as making interest and principal payments on the official debt -- and all projected future taxes#33 If you add up all forms of debt in the United States (government, business and consumer), it comes to more than 56 trillion dollars.  That is more than $683,000 per family). Second, I’d like to know how these unaffordably expensive military industrial complex (warned against by the great but substantially underrated President General Eisenhower) welfare programs have succeeded in accomplishing anything but the defacto bankruptcy of this nation, created fortunes for the war profiteering few, while fomenting (justifiable) anti-american sentiment globally (that ‘destructive thing’ that rational people abhor). Third, $489 billion in cuts over 10 years (however ‘sold’, ie., ‘new strategy’) is nothing relative to the enormity and insurmountability of the nation’s debt. What need’s a closer look is not so much the ‘new strategy’; but rather that failed abhorrent old strategy, however repackaged, and those who made it. After all, it doesn’t matter so much what they say, as it does what they do. A glaring example is the ‘war on drugs’ given america’s unequivocal involvement in same (infra). As for wobama missing the mark on defense, there isn’t anything whatsoever that wobama hasn’t missed the mark on. Obama flush with financial sector cash The president has managed to raise more money this year from the sector than any GOP contender. (WP) [ So much for obama and OWS; but how bout wobama and obs yes, more obama b*** s*** ! The quid pro quo the bribe   Cases against Wall Street lag despite Holders vows to target financial fraud  WP Obama has promised to hold Wall Street accountable for the meltdown.    America Is a Failed State Because It Wont Prosecute Financial Crime  Washington’s Blog Roche 'The worst part of it  ...Obama, who vowed change, has done almost nothing to fix any of it and in fact continues most of the policies that helped get us here in the first place  ‘INSIDE JOB’ Ferguson wins Oscar for Documentary on the unprosecuted massive extant fraud in the (many) TRILLIONS by the frauds on wall street ( and declares with oscar in hand that not one high level wall street exec has been prosecuted … despite ‘earning’ billions from the fraud )THE OBAMA DECEPTION  http://albertpeia.com/obamadeceptionhighqualityversion.flv ,    Role as political insider in Washington made Rick Santorum a millionaireAfter losing reelection bid in 2006, he capitalized on experience with a profitable career on K Street. (Washington Post) [ As such, the same salvos levied against slimy newt are aposite here and reiterated. Yet, I’m still non-plused by santorum equating same-sex marriage (as a heterosexual myself I can’t say that I’m wild about that idea) with polygamy (truth be told it could be easy for me to picture being wild about that idea). I haven’t yet looked closely at santorum, candidly speaking; and, know him only by his contraindicated and preposterous ‘soundbites’ in defense of nation-bankrupting neo-con geopolitics (wars) and have previously referred to him as a ‘lightweight’ thereby.

Rubin: Gingrich out for revenge (Washington Post) [ Yes, newt … revenge is sweet and so are you … Your reward: a message and a song to sing as you pine away about what was your day … Sweet slimy newt, once again from beyond, Frank’s got just the sultry sound to soothe your vengeful, restless spirit, so sing it snooty newty (but stay away from any new booty) :

FRANK SINATRA LYRICS: " I WANNA BE AROUND "
(J. Mercer, S. Vimmerstadt)
[Recorded June 9, 1964, Los Angeles]
I wanna be around to pick up the pieces when somebody breaks your heart,
Somebody twice as smart as I.
Somebody who will swear to be true like you used to do with me,
Who'll leave you to learn that misery loves company, wait and see.
I wanna be around to see how he does it when he breaks your heart to bits,
Let's see if the puzzle fits, so fine,
And that's when I'll discover that revenge is sweet,
As I sit there applauding from a front row seat,
When somebody breaks your heart like you broke mine.
That's when I'll discover that revenge is sweet,
As I sit there applauding from a front row seat,
When somebody breaks your heart like you broke mine,
Like you, like you broke mine.

Gingrich gets emotional at campaign event  In an unusually emotional moment, the former House speaker got teary-eyed when asked a question about his mother during an Iowa town hall Friday. (Washington Post) [ Wow! Slimy newt’s Muskie moment. Mom or no, he of all slime bags should know that ‘Big Boys Don’t Cry’; oh, excuse me, that’s ‘Big Girls Don’t Cry’. What to do … to cheer up the maudlin newt? Yes … once again from beyond, the sultry, soothing, sound of Frank provides the answer: { ‘Send in the Clowns’ -Full song, real lyrics with intro by Frank, infra:(Stephen Sondheim)[Recorded June 22, 1973, Hollywood] }

 

Isn't newt rich? Is he and mom a pair?
newt here at last on the ground and his campaign in mid-air
Send in the clowns…

 

Isn't newt rich? Isn’t he queer?
Losing his timing this late in his nearly presidential career
But where are the clowns? Send him to the clowns in d.c.
Well, maybe but not next year

 

For some Hill Republicans, fear of a Newt Gingrich nomination  Republican lawmakers, strategists fear Gingrich would jeopardize GOP prospects for control of Congress. (Washington Post) [ Fear indeed! Fear and loathing in fact is more descript; and, not just by Hill Republicans, to be sure. Then, ominously from beyond, another warning from the ghost of Frank (My Way Writer:Anka Composer:François,Revaux) : Regrets, newts had a few, but then again, too many to mention Indeed, far too many, and, despite crocodile tears from the duplicitous slimy newt, his unconflicted nature regarding such things means there are probably so many such things worthy of regret that hes all but unelectable as president ( speaking of newts, amphibians, throw in an arachnid for good measure, think of that fable of the frog and scorpion crossing the river and the all in his nature thing). Romney: Newt Gingrich an extremely unreliable conservative leader  EXCLUSIVE | In a Washington Post interview, Mitt Romney says he has been more consistent than his rival. (Washington Post) [ Yes we can hear the ghost of Frank sweetly serenading us with a foreboding and warning regarding the slimy newt based on his hit tune (Call me irresponsible Writer(s): Cahn/Van Heusen):

Call him irresponsible - call him unreliable
Throw in undependable too
Do his foolish alibis bore you
Well he’s not too clever – he just adores trumpish people we should boo

Call him unpredictable - tell him he’s impractical
Pots of gold at ends of rainbows he’s inclined to pursue
Call him irresponsible - yes newt’s unreliable
But it's undeniably true – newt’s irresponsibly mad for madman trump et als too

 

 

Full song, real lyrics with intro by Frank:

‘Send in the Clowns’ (Stephen Sondheim)[Recorded June 22, 1973, Hollywood]

[Spoken intro]
This is a song about a couple of adult people who have spent, oh, quite a long time
together, till one day
one of 'em gets restless and decides to leave. Whether it's the man or woman who left is unimportant.
It's a breakup.
It's a lovely marriage of words and music, written by Stephen Sondheim.


Isn't it rich? Are we a pair?
Me here at last on the ground and you in mid-air
Send in the clowns

Isn't it bliss? Don't you approve?
One who keeps tearing around and one who can't move
But where are the clowns? Send in the clowns

Just when I stopped opening doors
Finally finding the one that I wanted was yours
Making my entrance again with my usual flair

Sure of my lines
Nobody's there

Don't you love a farce? My fault, I fear
I thought that you'd want what I want, sorry my dear
But where are the clowns? Send in the clowns
Don't bother they're here

Isn't it rich? Isn't it queer?
Losing my timing this late in my career
But where are the clowns? Send in the clowns
Well, maybe next year

 

Financial Troubles For Many Nations In The New Year Bob Chapman | 2012 is going to be quite a year with falling economies in the UK, Europe, the US, China, Japan and the remainder of Asia. Ron Paul’s poll numbers are up in Iowa (Washington Post) [ As indeed they should be if people are truthful about wanting real change for the better. Historical headwinds Gingrich, Romney and Paul against the odds. (Washington Post) [ This is without doubt the most disappointing article by an otherwise invariably clear thinking Mr. Will. I’m glad for his disclosure (the Perry link) inasmuch as at least there is the possibility of a modicum of reason behind what otherwise would constitute a total ‘lack of reason’. Mr. Will sets forth some interesting tidbits of a category of sorts of history as if prepping for a round of Jeopardy, so obscure as they are. Relevance to today, that is also as obscure. If Mr. Will, of all people, cannot discern the difference today, from the america of yesterday, one does have to wonder who can. Yet, I do believe the vast majority in america do in fact discern such a difference. Why? Because the magnitude of that reality (of difference) is so great that one would have to be literally brain-dead to not discern it. Pervasively corrupt and quite literally defacto bankrupt, america’s at the cusp of a complete collapse in every way a nation could collapse; viz., financially, economically, politically, geopolitically, and legally. Indeed, so stark are these realities despite organized obfuscation, the same direction / status quo is blatantly untenable to even the most stalwart of ‘stay the course types’. Other than the black vote (roughly 18% according to’the first black president, clinton’) and the relatively few remaining wobama loyalists, I do believe, though belated, it’s human nature for that clear majority to opt for the chance of survival (of a nation) rather than the already worn path of decline as tread by wobama. Then comes the distinction between the failed president wobama and the alternative; Ron Paul being the ‘man, with a plan, that’s not already been ran’. New direction, change is sorely needed; which wobama promised, but never delivered, jive-talking con-man that he is. 

George H.W. Bush said to support Romney (Washington Post) [“I think Romney is the best choice for us,” said poppy bush. Exactly! Though surprisingly candid given his oft shady rhetoric; from read his lips ‘no new taxes’ to ‘he’s thinking anew’, words he ascribed to Lincoln; he really means this ‘us’ thing; not u.s. mind you; but literally us as in the untalented (war) criminal bush clan that spawned two failed presidents and have rested hopes for a third (jebby the judas – or at least a still viable political ‘leeching of america’ position – same for his lying -9/11- buddy tom kean’s son) in the ever increasingly desperate romney. So poor a job did poppy do, he, like ‘wobama the b for b***s***, was a ‘one-termer’ (even bush failure 2 who ranks among the worst presidents in american history, just a notch above wobama –the worst-, got two terms – people were still buying into their self-created ‘national emergency mode’ war propaganda). Then there’s his familial historical ties to fraudulent wall street as well as even hitler et als. But then there’s the military industrial complex so warned against by the great but underrated President General Eisenhower that stands to gain by the bush league approach and certainly romney’s bellicose rhetoric was made to order to accommodate such fleecing enterprises with wars / conflicts made real thereby. ‘Best choice’ … For whom should be the proper query? There’s the cia (and their illegal drug business and bigger off the grid budgets http://albertpeia.com/CIAAgentAffidavit1.jpg   ), the communist chinese (that engagement thing as former ambassador that’s worked out so marvelously for america while make ‘those few’ very wealthy), the Carlisle Group, etc.. Then there’s aipac, israel, zionist jews, neo-cons, mental-cases like cheney, bolton, etc., and in the case of aipac have been showing their love … not for americans/america, but for ie., romney and themselves… With rise, Ron Paul could be spoiler in GOP presidential race — or kingmaker As the first votes approach in Iowa, the congressman is a serious force with the potential to upend fight. (Washington Post) [ Spoiler? Kingmaker? How ‘bout ‘the candidate’! If there’s one thing far more scrutinizing eyes than those of the so-called mainstream are apt to point out (ie., Tyler Durden, Jones, Watson, etc.), it’s that the nation hasn’t fared so well with the so-called ‘establishment / mainstream candidates / favorites’. In fact, as we all know, the substantially compromised mainstream candidates with substantially compromised mainstream positions have proven to be downright disastrous for the nation, the people, and the world generally. The time has come in light of realities to say, borrowing the words from Robert Kennedy … Why not? There is no rational argument that militates against a Ron Paul who calls things as they are. After all, whether people like to admit it or not, the fed (like wobama the b for b***s***) has failed virtually all of their mandates. Moreover, the bernanke fed’s policies have helped the frauds / perps (biggest still unprosecuted) on wall street to the detriment of literally everyone else. The same is true of the military industrial complex war-welfare plans as warned against by the great but substantially underrated President General Eisenhower in terms of the few they so favored at everyone else’s expense. The examples go on and on and are too numerous to list. Rogers: Paul is short on appeal (Washington Post) [ Yeah … he ain’t pretty … but this ain’t a beauty contest … Moreover, what has appeal gotten the nation? … where has appeal gotten the nation to? … 4 years of wobama’s ‘appeal’ aka b***s*** has left the nation in the toilet at best, cesspool at worst; and, in large part owing to the glaring fact that if ‘wobama the b for b***s***’ had done what he said he’d do and didn’t, the nation prospects, though still ominous, would have been substantially enhanced. For all but Paul, it’s the failed ‘same old, same old’ which is, as per paraphrasing Einstein, neither a plan, nor strategy, but rather insanity. Gingrich’s time of testingTHE TAKE | Can Gingrich survive rivals’ attacks, build a campaign that sustains his candidacy? (Washington Post) [ ‘Time of testing’? Oh, but he has been tested … scandal-scarred like no other, he has been found wanting … too much … not for the nation, but himself … he’s already failed any and all tests.  Newspaper Chaired By Private Equity Head Shockingly Endorses Mitt Romney For President; Ron Paul On Jay Leno   A few hours ago the Des Moines Register threw its support behind the Bain Capital founder, and the man now known to have actively destroyed any trace of his public "service" before his 2007 Massachusettes office handover (with a pending response to a Reuters FOIA, which will disclose just what it was that Romney was so tenuously shredding). Because according to the Iowan newspaper, Mitt Romney "is the best to lead" America, although into what, is not quite clear - perhaps the biggest Fed funded LBO (with a Bain Capital $1 mezz piece) of all time, that of America? We don't know. And neither does the Register's editorial board. What they do know are hollow adjectives, such as "sobriety", "wisdom" and "judgment" which somehow are applicable to Romney, if not so much "betting" and "shredding." Those looking for a late night laugh can read the OpEd below (link to tomorrow's front page here). And ironically, while likely set to provide a very short-term boost to Romney's chances, it is the baseless ongoing accusations against Ron Paul that will likely solidify the groundswell behind the Texan, with such desperate platitudes as "Ron Paul's libertarian ideology would lead to economic chaos and isolationism, neither of which this nation can afford." Because what America certainly needs is more of that old ideology of doing everything just the same and hoping for the best, because if there is anything Romney's would be predecessors have taught us is that hope apparently is a credible strategy. But perhaps most relevant is the reminder that the Des Moines Register is a Gannett company whose Chairman just happens to be one Marjorie Magner, whose bio reads: 'Ms. Magner, 61, is Managing Partner of Brysam Global Partners, a private equity firm investing in financial services firms with a focus on consumer opportunities in emerging markets founded in January 2007. She was Chairman and CEO of Citigroup's Global Consumer Group from 2003 to 2005. She served in various roles at Citigroup, and a predecessor company, CitiFinancial (previously Commercial Credit), since 1987. Ms. Magner currently serves as a director of Accenture Ltd. and Ally Financial Inc. and served as a director of The Charles Schwab Corporation from February 2006 to May 2008. Ms. Magner has broad business experience and financial expertise from the various senior management roles she held with Citigroup." (that Romney felt the need to ‘kiss the ring’ of failed president poppy bush says a lot about ‘regressive political persuasion’

 

 

In N.H., Romney steps up attacks on Gingrich(Washington Post) [ Yeah … he’d better get going, ratchet up the rhetoric; after all, slimy newt’s just gotten the endorsement of ‘celebrity mobster madman’s (trump’s) apprentice’, ‘gary the b’ (for berserk) busey (most notable for his role in the film ‘Tomcats’ as the guy with only half a pair of b**ls!) (Drudgereport: Gary Busey Endorses Gingrich... ). Five myths about Ron Paul  (WP) [ For me, the litmus test for any candidate, though somewhat personalized, is generally applicable to the entire national electorate. It falls within that very broad category; viz., ‘been there, done that’. It is no mystery that the current wobama regime, et als are trying in every which way to censor, obstruct, and otherwise control the free-flow of information, particularly now the internet, which really works against failed administrations as that currently in place. By every measure you can gauge the success or failure of a presidency, wobama the b for b***s*** is an abject failure. There is not one reason based upon what he said he would do last time around, didn’t do, but as we now know had he done as he said the nation would have clearly been better off this day. He basically continued the policies of the prior failed presidency of war criminal dumbya bush, including the same or similarly connected players, despite having campaigned vociferously condemning same  (CIA lawyer says Obama administration backed and continued virtually all Bush-era programs Natural News ). Clinton was the luckiest of all recent presidents in having the benefit of
