Job gains lead to surge on Wall Street Unexpectedly rosy jobs report sets off a chain reaction, upending economists’ gloomy predictions. This is all smoke and mirrors.’ (Washington Post) [ Wow! The ‘jobs report’ is being discussed / hailed as if it’s real! I had hoped by scouring this article before comment to have been able to put The Post among the few so-called ‘mainstream media’ exceptions to what otherwise must be categorized journalistically as either corrupt, incompetent, or just plain dumb. Sadly, truly, I cannot (unretire / bring back Mr. Woodward!). No doubt, a reason for decline in readership, viewing among those ‘mainstream’ sources; whether it be print, television, or digital / internet. Such a pronouncement might be considered a bit harsh if only the substantive issues were a bit more financially complex; and, even then no justification for this lapse in journalistic integrity and consequent shoddy journalism. However, this is not the case and the factual scenario / issues rather simple (see infra). Quite simply, there’s absolutely no excuse for this ‘lightweight’ fluff piece which is totally devoid of substance (euphemistically speaking, that is – I’d be more apt to describe this article in terms of a four letter word that begins with the letter ‘s’). How pathetic! To see this pandering to the desperate pols in this election year regardless of failure at the unaffordable and insurmountable cost for obfuscation is unquestionably somewhat Orwellian, ‘1984ish’. Terrible! How very disappointing! I guess the late William Colby is still right! ‘The CIAs secret operations to influence journalism started in the 1950s by infiltrating the media and bribing journalists to be operatives and assets for the CIA. By 1976, then CIA director William Colby reportedly bragged that the CIA owned the press. Supposedly, this too secret to name operation was coined Operation Mockingbird by Deborah Davis in her book Katherine the Great’.

When Will The Government Quit Putting Out Fraudulent Employment Statistics?  http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com  http://albertpeia.com/governmentfraudulentemploymentstats.htm  ‘On Friday, the entire financial world celebrated when it was announced that the unemployment rate in the United States had fallen to 8.3 percent. That is the lowest it has been since February 2009, and it came as an unexpected surprise for financial markets that are hungry for some good news.  According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, nonfarm payrolls jumped by 243,000 during the month of January.  You can read the full employment report right here.  Based on this news, pundits all over the world were declaring that the U.S. economy is back.  Stocks continued to rise on Friday and the Dow is hovering near a 4 year high.  So does this mean that our economic problems are over?  Of course not.  A closer look at the numbers reveals just how fraudulent these employment statistics really are.  Between December 2011 and January 2012, the number of Americans "not in the labor force" increased by a whopping 1.2 million.  That was the largest increase ever in that category for a single month.  That is how the federal government is getting the unemployment rate to go down.  The government is simply pretending that huge numbers of unemployed Americans don't want to be part of the labor force anymore.  As you will see below, the employment situation in America is not improving.  Yet everyone in the mainstream media is dancing around as if the economic crisis has been cancelled.  I can't take it anymore!  It is beyond ridiculous that so many intelligent people continue to buy in to such fraudulent numbers…  http://albertpeia.com/Labor-Force-Participation-Rate-440x264.png  , http://albertpeia.com/Employment-Population-Ratio-440x264.png … ,  Long-Term Unemployment Remains High, Millions Leave Labor Force Matt Cover | Number of long-term unemployed was unchanged at 5.5 million in January, near its record .. , Dave’s Daily: http://www.etfdigest.com  CONTROVERSIAL JOBS REPORT STOKES BULLS February 03, 2012 ‘The jobs report Friday was a ginned-up number but the media and algos don’t look under the hood much it seems. Yes, the unemployment rate fell to 8.3% and 243K new jobs were created and perhaps the number itself will boost confidence.My favorite book from college statistics was ‘How to Lie with Statistics’. I believe the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) may have ripped a chapter or two from the book. The details were interesting and little reported because the media has soap to sell. First a whopping 1.2 million people vanished from the labor force in 2011. That is a massive seasonal/consensus driven adjustment. The BLS assumes those people aged 55 and higher died from the 2010 consensus. (So much for living longer in the USA!)This means the labor force fell to a 30 year low of 63.7%. Around 113K of the gain in employment came from low wage jobs according to CRT Capital Group. Also part-time jobs rose by 699K, the third highest in history, while only 80K full-time jobs were created. Finally, the ISM Services Report, which rose to 56.8 from 52.6, included an increase in sector employment from 49.8 to 57.3, but perhaps didn’t include large sector bank layoffs. Other skeptics included PIMCO’s Bill Gross who tweeted: http://albertpeia.com/grosstweet.jpg  Respected TrimTabs detailed analysis which mocks the BLS and well regarded blogger Jesse’s Café Americain.Lack of in-depth or accurate reporting aside, the stock market loved the report as it was “dummy up” time in the media. Other data included rising Factory Orders but missed expectations (1.1% vs 1.8% previous & 1.5% consensus)…’ , Obama’s economic policies have created a nation of jobless citizens dependent on government handouts Natural News | It’s no secret that the U.S. national debt is poised to increase by more than $6 trillion during President Obama’s first four years in office., Record 1.2 Million People Fall Out Of Labor Force In One Month, Labor Force Participation Rate Tumbles To Fresh 30 Year Low A month ago, we joked when we said that for Obama to get the unemployment rate to negative by election time, all he has to do is to crush the labor force participation rate to about 55%. Looks like the good folks at the BLS heard us: it appears that the people not in the labor force exploded by an unprecedented record 1.2 million. No, that's not a typo: 1.2 million people dropped out of the labor force in one month! So as the labor force increased from 153.9 million to 154.4 million, the non institutional population increased by 242.3 million meaning, those not in the labor force surged from 86.7 million to 87.9 million. Which means that the civilian labor force tumbled to a fresh 30 year low of 63.7% as the BLS is seriously planning on eliminating nearly half of the available labor pool from the unemployment calculation.. , Implied Unemployment Rate Rises To 11.5%, Spread To Propaganda Number Surges To 30 Year High   Sick of the BLS propaganda? Then do the following calculation with us: the US civilian non-institutional population was 242,269 in January, an increase of 1.7 million month over month: apply the long-term average labor force participation rate of 65.8% to this number (because as chart 2 below shows, people are not retiring as the popular propaganda goes: in fact labor participation in those aged 55 and over has been soaring as more and more old people have to work overtime, forget retiring), and you get 159.4 million: that is what the real labor force should be. The BLS reported one? 154.4 million: a tiny 5 million difference. Then add these people who the BLS is purposefully ignoring yet who most certainly are in dire need of labor and/or a job to the 12.758 million reported unemployed by the BLS and you get 17.776 million in real unemployed workers. What does this mean? That using just the BLS denominator in calculating the unemployed rate of 154.4 million, the real unemployment rate actually rose in January to 11.5%. Compare that with the BLS reported decline from 8.5% to 8.3%. It also means that the spread between the reported and implied unemployment rate just soared to a fresh 30 year high of 3.2%. And that is how with a calculator and just one minute of math, one strips away countless hours of BLS propaganda. , Marc Faber: "Ron Paul Would Be A Very Good President"While Marc Faber shares the usual stock of insightful market commentary, together with timing inflection points, and extended thoughts in the attached Bloomberg TV clip, it is the fact that he has officially joined Bill Gross, and so many others, in supporting the candidacy of Ron Paul as president. It is rather sad that only those who see beyond the surface of the current pyramid scheme facade, are bold enough to endorse the only man who is right for the White House. Fast forward to 15 minutes into the video to hear Marc Faber: "Ron Paul would be a very good president.", Europe Celebrates Its Latest Recession With Record High Gas PricesIs China's Yield Curve Signaling A Harder Landing?Guest Post: Counterfeit Value Derivatives: Follow The Bouncing BallAccording to the Bank of International Settlements, as of June 2011 total over-the-counter derivatives contracts have an outstanding notional value of 707.57 trillion dollars, ( 32.4 trillion dollars in CDS’s alone). Where does this kind of money come from, and what does it refer to? We don’t really know, because over-the-counter derivatives are not transparent or regulated. With regulated economic markets, when an underlying real asset is impaired (i.e. the company in question is bankrupt, the mortgage has defaulted, etc.), market value is assessed, default insurance is paid up to replacement or full value, bond holders and stock holders make claims on remaining value and the account is closed. There is no need for bailouts because order and proportion of compensation has been established and everything is attached to the value of the underlying asset. When the unreal, counterfeit economy intrudes, you now have a situation where a person can put in an unregulated, but recognized, claim to be paid a thousand times over in case of impairment. Say market participants have negotiated for a bankrupt company a 70% payback for bondholders and (36% payback for insurance claims), and I come with not one but rather 1,000 CDS claims demanding to be paid for each CDS. , Deconstructing The "Massive Beat" in Employment Data : ilene : 2-3-12  If last week's tax data is indicative of what's ahead this month, the "good news" won't be sustained.  , Why U.S. Unemployment Rate Is 12.1%   http://www.bullseyemicrocaps.com/?p=46058 February 2, 2012 Carlos X. Alexandre: ‘There are plenty of ways of looking at the unemployment numbers, and U3 is the “official unemployment rate.” The U6 measurement is often mentioned to highlight the precarious condition of the job market in America in a broader sense, and according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the official rate is 8.5% while U6 stands at 15.5%. The definition for U6 is as follows: “Total unemployed, plus all persons marginally attached to the labor force, plus total employed part time for economic reasons, as a percent of the civilian labor force plus all persons marginally attached to the labor force.” I must acknowledge that the BLS has made modifications to its methods (pdf) over the years, but I used their numbers as published…’

Airlines pension bailout plan draws ire American Airlines move to terminate its pension plans has angered the PBGC and labor unions. (Washington Post) [ Sign of the times? Y’ain’t seen nothin’ yet. This is especially so for any of those numerous pension plans of the defined benefit variety (the benefit as defined is what you get and shortfalls in returns to fund same must be made up), as opposed to the more fiscally conservative defined contribution (whatever the contribution earns is what you get) genre. Why? Because the assumptions for returns in said plans to fund the benefits are ‘wildly optimistic’ and far in excess of the ‘zero interest rate reality’ without imprudent risks, including that of the wildly overvalued stock market, currently being flooded sub rosa with the latest manifestation of QE, viz. over-printed / created Weimar fiat paper dollar currency, to everyone’s detriment save those frauds on wall street.

The counterfeiter takes low-value paper and turns it into high-value money, which is fundamentally a claim on the real productive value of the economy that issues the currency and recognizes it as a proxy means of exchanging that productive value. Counterfeiting is illegal because the counterfeiter creates no additional value--he creates only the proxy for value. Creating real value--adding meaningful goods or services to the economy--is tedious, hard work. How much easier to simply transform near-worthless paper into a claim on actual goods and services.  If this is illegal, then would somebody please arrest the Board of the Federal Reserve for counterfeiting? The Fed has blatantly printed money without creating any real value to back up their added claims on productive value. Hence they are counterfeiting, pure and simple.

Kiss The Foreclosure Settlement Goodbye: Bank of America, Wells And JP Morgan Are Sued Over Use Of MERSA little over a year since the day that the world first learned about robosigning and the broader problem of fraudclosure, which is merely the functional equivalent of infinite rehypothecation of an underlying asset between a daisy-chain of lien holders, we get the first legal incursion into this farce. From Bloomberg we learn that:

In other words, kiss that foreclosure settlement goodbye. In the meantime, the  electronic momos keep taking BAC ever higher even as this news confirms that the bank is about to suffer a multi-billion impairment shortly.

The counterfeiter takes low-value paper and turns it into high-value money, which is fundamentally a claim on the real productive value of the economy that issues the currency and recognizes it as a proxy means of exchanging that productive value. Counterfeiting is illegal because the counterfeiter creates no additional value--he creates only the proxy for value. Creating real value--adding meaningful goods or services to the economy--is tedious, hard work. How much easier to simply transform near-worthless paper into a claim on actual goods and services.  If this is illegal, then would somebody please arrest the Board of the Federal Reserve for counterfeiting? The Fed has blatantly printed money without creating any real value to back up their added claims on productive value. Hence they are counterfeiting, pure and simple.

The Posts View The Senate didnt do enough to stop insider trading Editorial Board Theres still too much ambiguity on rules covering lawmakers. (Washington Post) [ So much for nobody being above the law! I quite agree that absolutely no ambiguity; indeed, no ‘wiggle room’ whatsoever should be countenanced in this ‘legislation’. Actually, an outright ban would be a more ‘cut and dry’ approach and desirable. Objections? Don’t run for office if you don’t like the rule. After all, Washington politics has strayed a long way from being a ‘public service sacrifice’ to rather an extravagantly accoutered, very costly to the public, but lucrative end in itself; and worse, regardless of results (the fiefdoms seem to be self-perpetuating). Yet, it still comes down to the meaningfulness of the laws, particularly relative to arbitrary enforcement; and, for those who believe the ‘courts’ will apply those laws as written and intended, I’m constrained to say from direct experience: ‘You don’t get out much!’ http://albertpeia.com/fbimartinezcongallard.htm     http://albertpeia.com/stansberrycorruptiondeclineofamerica.htm  http://albertpeia/americangovernmentdrugtrafficking.htm     http://albertpeia/americascorruptiondrugtrade.htm  

 

 

The Post’s View Drawdown in Afghanistan Why should troops die this year if U.S. is leaving next year? (Washington Post) [ Indeed! But the larger question is why should they have died in Afghanistan at all? Well, the answer’s simple, even beyond the military industrial complex / war profiteer thing. It’s not a question of the heroes in; but rather, it’s all about the heroin. Yes, heroin! That icky, sticky highly addictive and devestating drug that the most sordid of organized crime ilk here and abroad find so appealing and lucrative. And, it’s ‘high time’ for this very newspaper (among all others and media) to step up and say what everyone with a computer and internet connection with a desire to know already knows; viz., the u.s. government is in the illegal drug business (including heroin, cocaine, etc.) in a very big way. Back when I brought a RICO action involving drug money laundering (see infra) I never in my wildest dreams could have thought that reality to be so, yet indeed it is so.

Today in Afghanistan, American troops have been seen guarding poppy fields used to make heroin. Those fields were all but wiped out by 2001 when the Taliban destroyed them and forbade that agricultural pursuit. Now theyre flourishing again after the American occupation.

This doesnt make sense despite all the mainstream reports that American troops are protecting the poppy farmers from the bad guys. Internet sites such as Prison Planet, Info Wars, The Political Coffeehouse and others report otherwise. They connect the CIA and US military to restarting the poppy fields in Afghanistan in 2002, increasing poppy growth by over 650 percent. Whos telling it like it is?

One way the CIA keeps their drug trafficking hidden from public view

The CIAs secret operations to influence journalism started in the 1950s by infiltrating the media and bribing journalists to be operatives and assets for the CIA. By 1976, then CIA director William Colby reportedly bragged that the CIA owned the press. Supposedly, this too secret to name operation was coined Operation Mockingbird by Deborah Davis in her book Katherine the Great.

Operation Mockingbird worked well against prize winning journalist Gary Webb when his newspaper, the San Jose Mercury News, ran his in depth series on CIA drug trafficking that flooded the USA to help finance the CIA backed Nicaraguan Contras during the 1980s.

Journalists all over the USA jumped on the series, claiming Webbs journalism was shoddy. The newspaper had to recant and fire him, and Gary Webb was black listed from mainstream journalism completely.

 

Webb retaliated by having his book Dark Alliance published and making the NY Times best seller list, forcing some of his critics to privately eat crow after the fact.

Despite the CIAs control of the press, a few Mexico and Central America cocaine busts of plane cargoes and discoveries of large cocaine stashes on crashed planes with CIA hired pilots flying them for front companies did hit the mainstream news, albeit briefly.

Remember the movie Air America? It was based on an actual CIA owned front company transporting tons of heroin from Southeast Asias Golden Triangle poppy fields during and after the Vietnam conflicts. Now Afghanistan and the Golden Crescent are the featured opium/heroin conduit sources.

Government and big business using drug traffic profits is nothing new

When the U.S. government made deals with the Cosa Nostra mafia to help police ports and harbors during WW II, they breathed life into the heroin trade. Eventually, Marseilles, France was set up by the Corsican mafia to become the French Connection for heroin traffic.

But opium trade history goes back further, to colonial times and early America. Thats when American shipping magnates used their fast Clipper Ships to compete with Englands monarch sanctioned dope running East India Company for transporting opium to China.

A few key players created family fortunes from the China opium trade that exist today within some northeast Americas old money families.

Among the familiar family names, according to Wikipedia (source below) is Forbes. Another source mentions Astor, a prominently wealthy philanthropic family around New York today (Wiki source below). In those days, trafficking dope was a legitimate business endeavor, immoral but not illegal.

Now it is illegal as well. Ironically, this allows the biggest illicit drug providers to financially benefit the CIA and international banking.’

In South, Gingrich vows to rise again The most topsy-turvy among up-then-down-again candidates says he could revive once more. (Washington Post) [ Rise again indeed! Like a phoenix from the ashes! You just can’t keep a good sleaze / con down (look at wobama). Not to worry newty; you got the endorsement of that new york don (trump), which also means you can be his celebrity apprentice. And, from beyond in South LA (‘LA Woman’ – The Doors) we hear the sweet sound of ‘the lizard man’, Jimmy’s spirit joining the thongs, I mean the throngs in unison, feverishly calling out in support of ‘the newt man’:

With Mitt and Newt, pragmatic vs. epic The policy differences between Romney and Gingrich reflect their contrasting personalities  (Washington Post) [ Let’s not get too dramatic here! Epic? I don’t think so; at least as long as you’re counting full moon lunacy.

 

Gingrich: Today’s college students are coddled (Washington Post) [ Oh riiiiight, Ché Newty the Revolutionary! They’ve got no jobs and an insurmountably bankrupt nation to look forward to thanks in large part to you, your ilk, your peers, wobama et als; and, notably, through no fault of their own. Besides, says newty, ‘kids, they comb their hair in that funny way’.  Riiiiight, snooty newty, there’s those ‘janitorial jobs’ for which there are even waiting lists of applicants for even those jobs according to reports. Say anything, Ché Newty the Revolutionary! As per wobama, words are cheap; but as we all now know, ultimately very costly when they’re more rhetoric / b***s*** than truth / reality!  Gingrich turns to advisers who believe supply-side economics is the answer Advisers believe solution to nation’s deficit is to spur growth through tax cuts and deregulation. (Washington Post) [ Oh riiiiight! Worked like a charm in creating the last few fraud-induced debacles in this ongoing crisis, and the trickle never quite seems to trickle down that far. Yet, it appears the slimy newt’s found a kindred spirit in that malleable italian, peter ferrara ( ‘Peter Ferrara describes himself as Gingrich’s chief economic policy adviser and has won praise from Gingrich on the campaign trail. A lawyer and libertarian scholar who had long advocated privatizing Social Security — and once acknowledged taking payments from Jack Abramoff to write favorable op-ed pieces about the lobbyist’s clients — Ferrara said he talks to Gingrich almost daily…’), and the frauds on wall street will just love his social security privatization / new blood for the infamous blood-sucking squid (goldman sachs), to keep the ponzi padded with fresh dough once again on the backs of taxpayers (kind of a ‘k street’ kind of drain). Focused regulation of areas of the economy prone to fraud, ie., wall street, and deregulation as to others, ie., small businesses, is a more optimal course.( Bribes, Chinese mob ties alleged at Casino of Gingrich money man Sheldon Adelson Denies Wrongdoing as FBI, SEC Probe Alleged Corrupt Practices …).

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.]

 

Limbaugh: Ron Paul “Sounds Like An Islamic Terrorist” Steve Watson | Says he would have no problem with TSA detaining US Congressman. [ Ah, come on. You got to infer something’s supplanted limbaugh’s hillbilly heroin and clouding his judgement.

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. See here: Hes So Vain, Hed Be Right in Thinking This Post Is About Him By ANDREW ROSENTHAL NYT  http://loyalopposition.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/01/20/hes-so-vain-hed-be-right-in-thinking-this-post-is-about-him  …You cant set too much store by press releases from one campaign about another, but I have to say that Mitt Romneys team has come out with a devastating one. 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.

He had to be joking, right? Sadly, he was not joking…’ The Economic Collapse December 21, 2011 http://albertpeia.com/40piecesevidenceusdecline.htm

 

 

Romney, Gingrich clash sharply in debate The former Massachusetts governor attacked the former House speaker as a failed leader, a K Street influence peddler and a candidate who would put the party at risk in the general election. Gingrich’s firm paid $25,000 a month by Freddie, according to contract (Washington Post) [ True enough, sweet mitt; the slimy newt’s just an unscrupulous peddler; and none other than Frank’s ‘rat pack bro’, the Dino is ushered in from beyond by Frank to croon in his smooth as greecey italian way and warn us all:

 

 

The Peddler’s Serenade {recorded 1962 Dean Martin joined Frank Sinatra's Reprise ... "The Peddler's Serenade" (Jimmy Eaton / J.J. Corvo / Paul McGrane}

 

There’s a peddler and former speaker of the house

Was forced to resign ‘cause he’s such a louse

The peddler slimy newt with nothing of substance to sell

Just like wobama will bring the nation down to hell

 

 

(Actual lyrics in pertinent part)

There's a peddler comes to our house

With such wonderful bargains to sell

And he starts our hearts to tingling

Just as soon as he pushed the bell

Fannie, Freddie writedowns too costly: regulator WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The regulator for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac told lawmakers that forcing the two mortgage firms to write down loan principal would require more than $100 billion in fresh taxpayer funds… [ In other words, like the fed, banks, fannie/freddie are carrying  worthless toxic assets ‘marked to anything’. ]

 

 

The two faces of Newt Gingrich With few campaign advisers to keep him on track, the candidate is showing his nasty side. (Washington Post) [ Yes indeed, we see ‘both sides now’ of ‘nasty newt’; as ominously warned by the sound from beyond of none other but Frank { Performed by

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. (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 Holder’s vows to target financial fraud  WP Obama has promised to hold Wall Street accountable for the meltdown.    America Is a Failed State Because It Won’t 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 , ] . 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’.

 

 

 

Dueling versions of the un-Obama In their disparate portraits of president, Romney, Gingrich reveal something important about selves.  (Washington Post) [ Dueling versions as in ‘Dueling Banjos’ (Book, Movie ‘Deliverance’)? … If so, chalk it up for the slimy newt who has proven he fares well with the hillbillies of socar. Un-obama as in uncola ? …  If so, up we chalk it for sweet mitt since the slimy newt has as Coca Cola that Atlanta root. Remember slimy newt … no cornholin’ outside your third marriage as per Frank’s prior warning:

Should I (Reveal) { Recorded by Frank Sinatra  Songwriters: Nacio Herb Brown, Arthur Freed }

Should the slimy newt reveal

He’s nothing but a heal
Should the slimy newt recite
he’s no more than a thief in the night…

 

Frank can’t take it anymore, this politics thing is depressing his spirit, and, to a higher astral plane he shall ascend and he’ll chime in on this election no more!

 

 

 (Actual lyrics in pertinent part)

 

Should I reveal exactly as I feel?

Should I confess I love you?

Should I recite beneath the pale moonlight?

And swear by the stars above you…

 

Romney, Gingrich clash sharply in debate The former Massachusetts governor attacked the former House speaker as a failed leader, a K Street influence peddler and a candidate who would put the party at risk in the general election. Gingrich’s firm paid $25,000 a month by Freddie, according to contract (Washington Post) [ True enough, sweet mitt; the slimy newt’s just an unscrupulous peddler; and none other than Frank’s ‘rat pack bro’, the Dino is ushered in from beyond by Frank to croon in his smooth as greecey italian way and warn us all:

 

 

The Peddler’s Serenade {recorded 1962 Dean Martin joined Frank Sinatra's Reprise ... "The Peddler's Serenade" (Jimmy Eaton / J.J. Corvo / Paul McGrane}

 

There’s a peddler and former speaker of the house

Was forced to resign ‘cause he’s such a louse

The peddler slimy newt with nothing of substance to sell

Just like wobama will bring the nation down to hell…

 

 

 

Marcus: Gingrich shoots the messenger    Parker: Gingrich’s plea of persecution  (Washington Post) [ Yeah! Poor (not really thanks to that slithery ‘k street phenomena of money for nothing’) slimy newt. There’s really no excuse for blaming the media. I actually believe her (could be a familiar ‘meaning of the word is, is’ scenario) but to that I say, ‘So What’! After all, if it was a lack of mendacity and meretricious, disingenuous hypocrisy that the media and electorate were looking for, Ron Paul would be surging! And from beyond, we sense Frank’s upset as he croons:

 

He was married and so was she

In a house of sticks that he was made to flee

She wore black and he wore white

Though she might win this fight

 

So what, she shot him down

So what, they were blank rounds

Bang bang, the media rang

Bang bang, the socar hillbillies sang

So what, his baby shot him down … with blanks!

 

My Baby Shot Me Down

 

Writer: BONO, SONNY / REYES, SENEN / FREESE, LOUIS / FERM, DEMERICK SHELTON  Recorded: Frank Sinatra ‘She Shot Me Down’ 1981

(Actual lyrics in pertinent part)


I was five and she was six
We rode on horses made of sticks
I wore black and she wore white
She would always win the fight

Bang bang, she shot me down
Bang bang, I hit the ground
Bang bang, that awful sound
Bang bang, my baby shot me down …


Petri: Grandiose Gingrich overruns awful Romney  Rubin: In debate, Gingrich meets his match (Washington Post) [ ‘Same Debate: Two views, the news, two different views’. The gamut … from ‘bull run to ‘bull s***’ they did diverge. Frank’s displeased with this lack of clarity so from beyond he adds his soothing sound … for clarity of course! :

 

"Tea for Two" (recorded 1947 Frank Sinatra / Dinah Shore) (Music/Youmans Lyrics/Caesar)

 

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!

 


{actual song in pertinent part}

I'm discontented with homes that are rented
So I have invented my own.

Darling this place is a lover's oasis where life's
weary chase is unknown.

Far from the cry of the city, where flowers pretty
caress the streams.

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

Picture you upon my knee, just tea for two and two for tea,
Just me for you and you for me, alone! …’

 

The two faces of Newt Gingrich With few campaign advisers to keep him on track, the candidate is showing his nasty side. (Washington Post) [ Yes indeed, we see ‘both sides now’ of ‘nasty newt’; as ominously warned by the sound from beyond of none other but Frank { Performed by

Frank Sinatra 1968, Written by Joni Mitchell First release Both Sides Now by Judy Collins on audio album Wildflowers (November 1967) }

 

Rows and flows of newt’s white hair
And icy screams from bombs in the air
And unfettered cannons ev'rywhere
I've looked at mushroom clouds that way …

 

 

Gingrich returns to his scrappy roots, closing the gap ahead of crucial S.C. As crunch time nears, Gingrich sharpens his elbows for a dirty and dishonest campaign against him. Whats Marianne Gingrich got on her ex-husband?  (Washington Post) [ Married four times himself, the spirit of Frank shows his magnanimous, albeit surprising support for the slimy newt and sings as only Frank can, while asking the slimy newt to join in:

 

‘Lady is a Tramp’ Writer(s): Rodgers/Hart   Recorded 1956: Frank Sinatra

She gets too hungry, weighs two hundred and eight
She hates political theater, and always comes late
She'd always bother, with people he'd hate
That's why the lady is a tramp

 

Yes, snooty newty, Frank forgives you your new booty … this time!

 

{(actual lyrics in pertinent part)
She gets too hungry, to eat dinner at eight
She loves the theater, and never comes late
She'd never bother, with people she'd hate
That's why the lady is a tramp …}

Erik Wemple : Chris Matthews alleges Gingrichian racial snarkiness (Washington Post) [ Snarky, indeed! He’s so snarky, that slimy newt. Once again snooty newty has raised the ire of Frank from beyond as Frank feels compelled to chime in on behalf of his shadow, also known as sammy, as in sammy davis, jr., who is also a spook; you know a ghost. And no, sammy was not one of the spooks at the cia who are a bunch of spooks, and so indirectly Franks chimin in on the cias behalf as well. Sing it Frank (with your shadow, sammy):

(Actual Song - Duet - Artist: Frank Sinatra & Sammy Davis Jr   Song: Me and My Shadow    Date recorded: 1962)

Me and My Shadow

 

snooty newty and his shadow

Strolling down pennsylvania avenue
snarky newty and his shadow

That’s a dream that won’t come true

snooty newty and his shadow

All alone and feeling black and blue

‘cause snooty newty and his shadow
just got mugged in front of wobama’s temp house too

 

 

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 :

I Love Paris  (Writer(s): Cole Porter) (Recorded 1959, 1960 Frank Sinatra)

 

I love Paris in the spring time
No room for newt on the ballot in the fall
I love seeing newt splinter this winter when he fizzles
I love seeing newt the bummer in summer when it sizzles

 

Newty seems dumber,

Really don’t have to wait for summer,
to see that bummer newty fall

 

 

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. I’m still wondering what these k street schmoozers, carlyle (infra), etc., ‘do’ for their piece of the misguided action, as with lobbies including the likes of gingrich, santorum, etc.. (34 Shocking Facts About U.S. Debt That Should Set America On Fire With Anger  http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com   http://albertpeia.com/34shockingfactsaboutusdebt.htm   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).
