Bernanke cautions Senate panelThe Federal Reserve chairman warned the Senate to focus on growth now and deficit cuts later. (Washington Post) [ Well, there you have it; this, from the co-architect of the continued current debacle. This is exactly why accurate financial reporting is absolutely essential; viz., particularly, the fake employment / unemployment numbers and the vastly understated inflation numbers, from gasoline to basic food items to a multitude of other goods. This guy’s failed all mandates relative to the fed http://albertpeia.com/whathasthefeddone.htm  ; and is still debasing the overprinted evermore worthless fiat paper weimar dollar currency for the wall street only ‘wealth effect’ which is not real wealth at all but rather a scam / fraud that in addition to the churn-and-earn at lightning computerized speeds, also allows for ‘cash outs’ at face value from paper to hard assets for the fraudulent / complicit few. Like wobama who reappointed him despite his failure, they’re in this together and obfuscation / deception in this election year is all ahead full. Forget the deficits … wealth effect as failed greenspun … print ever more worthless paper Weimar dollar fiat currency … borrow more … etc., clearly, having transferred productive capacity off-shore and is insurmountably defacto bankrupt (Americas debt woe is worse than Greeces News (CNN) Our government is utterly brokeThe governments total indebtedness is $211 trillion), the nation can neither grow nor borrow its way out of this crisis, and helicopter ben b.s. shalom bernanke is shootin’ for the election to save his failed job with as expected, imprudent judgment / advice and bad obfuscating policy.

In 2011, it was the rebound of private investment due to Obama's capital equipment tax credit contributing most to U.S GDP growth. The U.S. consumer, though, hasn't really been jumpstarted over the past two years. That is why earnings multiples on the S&P 500 continued to decrease, despite stellar earnings growth from emerging markets. Last week's Q4'11 GDP numbers confirmed, for me, that 2012 will be another year with little U.S. consumer growth, and that earnings multiples for most companies (even those companies named after fruit) will likely continue to compress as we head further into this year…’ , Better Safe than Sorry - A Top Seems to be Forming Maierhofer  ,  China's Road to Becoming a Reserve Currency The Wall Street Journal , Yes, It Is Halftime In America So Now Is The Time To Get Your Financial Priorities In Order ECB  http://albertpeia.com/halftimeinamerica.htm  ,  Why Is Global Shipping Slowing Down So Dramatically?  ECB http://albertpeia.com/globalshipslowingdramatically.htm  If the global economy is not heading for a recession, then why is global shipping slowing down so dramatically?  Many economists believe that measures of global shipping such as the Baltic Dry Index are leading economic indicators.  In other words, they change before the overall economic picture changes.  For example, back in early 2008 the Baltic Dry Index began falling dramatically.  , Believe In A Return To The Gold Standard?

Yet every now and then it worth reminding readers who may have stumbled on this blog recently, just how bad things are in graphic format. Our friends at Nanex, who are by far the best forensic analysts of everything that is busted with the US stock market, have completed a masterpiece analysis showing the churning (packet traffic) in the various fragmented US market venues, from the NYSE to the Nasdaq to BATS and so forth, on a daily basis beginning in January 2007 and continuing through today. While the "rise of the HFT machine" over the past 5 years, following the adoption of Reg NMS, will hardly be a surprise to most, what is stunning is the first animated confirmation of the market terminally breaking on August 5, 2011, the day the US was downgraded, an observation that first was made right here on Zero Hedge. Which begs the question: what really happened in the stock market on August 5, 2011 when the US was downgraded to AA+, when everything literally broke, who is intervening constantly in the stock market, and why are they doing so via various HFT intermediary mechanisms? ,    Contrary to Government Claims of 243,000 Jobs Created, Hundreds of Thousands of Jobs Were Actually LOST In January Washingtons Blog | Government Misrepresents Employment Picture. , Citigroup: Risk of Greek Exit From Euro Has Risen to 50%  The Wall Street Journal ,  Fixed-Income ETFs Rally Despite Europe's Pending Recession  Motley Fool  , Greece Has No Idea What Its Gotten Itself Into February 6th, 2012 http://gainspainscapital.com ..  the next round of the Euro Crisis is now at our doorstep. Indeed, this latest short-covering rally in the Euro (Euro shorts were at a record high) looks ready to end and reverse ..  ,  , Guest Post: What If We're Beyond Mere Policy Tweaks?The mainstream view uniting the entire political spectrum is that all our financial problems can be fixed by what amounts to top-down, centralized policy tweaks and regulation: for example, tweaking policies to "tax the rich," limit the size of "too big to fail" financial institutions, regulate credit default swaps, lower the cost of healthcare (a.k.a. sickcare), limit the abuses of student loans to pay for online diploma mills, and on and on and on. But what if the rot is already beyond the reach of more top-down policy tweaks? Consider the recent healthcare legislation: thousands of pages of obtuse regulations that require a veritable army of regulators staffing a sprawling fiefdom with the net result of uncertain savings based on a board somewhere in the labyrinth establishing "best practices" that will magically cut costs in a system that expands by 9% a year, each and every year, a system so bloated with fraud, embezzlement and waste that the total sum squandered is incalculable, but estimated at around 40%, minimum....The painful truth is that we are far beyond the point where policy/legalist regulatory tweaks will actually fix what's wrong with America. The rot isn't just financial or political; those are real enough, but they are mere reflections of a profound social, cultural, yes, spiritual rot. This is the great illusion: that our financial and political crises can be resolved with top-down, centralized financial reforms of one ideological flavor or another. It is abundantly clear that our crises extend far beyond a lack of regulation or policy tweaks. We cling to this illusion because it is easy and comforting.. , Negative Bank Preannouncements BeginWe are not even half way into the quarter, and the negative preannouncements for financials have already begun:MACQUARIE SAYS `SUBSTANTIALLY LOWER LEVELS' OF CLIENT ACTIVITY BLOOMBERG , Guest Post: Bringing The "Not In The Labor Force" Mystery To LightVolumeless Equity Recovery Ignores Broad Risk Asset Derisking ,  San Fran Fed Finds Fiscal Stimulus Has Little Impact During Periods Of Economic GrowthIt has only been a week since we discussed the San Francisco Fed's research group admitted that water was wet Fed policy will be unable to impact unemployment since the cyclical changes are more structural leading to jobless recoveries as fat is removed from the system. , Guest Post: Illusion Of Recovery - Feelings Versus FactsThe last week has offered an amusing display of the difference between the cheerleading corporate mainstream media, lying Wall Street shills and the critical thinking analysts.

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.

Obamas lucky break Things are looking good for the president. (Washington Post) [ Yes indeed, if you believe in b***s*** and the parallel universe / reality they’re touting. At some point, the reality’s going to be by necessity the issue rather than the total b***s*** that’s been spoon fed in propaganda form; the false, manipulated data being just a small example of same. Then there’s the misguided actions that have belied the campaign promises of yesteryear. Sweet Mr. Milbank. His love and allegiance to wobama knows no bounds. Those ‘job / unemployment’ numbers are just one of many divergences from reality palmed off as ‘improvement’. Actually, the only thing that has ‘improved’, if size matters and is the criterion, is the size of pervasively corrupt america’s insurmountable and unsustainable debt  http://albertpeia/34shockingfactsaboutusdebt.htm   .

(Washington Post) [ For the Editorial Board (or anyone else), their’s is the right call. In truth, I’d have been somewhat surprised by this misguided action of the administration even if the nation was not in dire straits in almost every way imaginable; particularly, financially, economically, and structurally (including infrastructurally). hillary clinton? Oh yeah, that ‘chicago mercantile’ commodities wizard that turned some nominal sum ($3-7,000) into in excess of $100,000 in a rather short period of time (The Wall Street Journal’s expert concluded someone was giving the clintons money). Quite frankly, I’m a bit surprised she was involved at all in the process; being the first Secretary of State in memory to have done so. After all, she’s been so integrally involved in fomenting the prevalent anti-american sentiment throughout the world with great éclat. Then there’s america’s defacto bankruptcy. That’s gotta’ be the ‘last straw’ militating against this imprudent decision.

Some companies won’t even hire until wobama’s out ( Drudgereport:  COMPANY SHOCK: 'WE'RE NOT HIRING UNTIL OBAMA GONE'  ) , the ‘budget director’ for his ‘knowledgeable budgetary skills’ is hardly palatable reality even to as gullible an american public as we’ve come to know. There’s a bit more to this story that needs sayin’. Romney’s money problem His nomination may be near, but his routine is getting a bit rich. (Washington Post) [ Yet another of those ‘aw come on Mr. Milbank moments’. I mean really. Wobama’s are as ‘rich’, disingenuous 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...

Obama missing the mark on defense? President Obama’s 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. 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.

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)’

 

 

 

The Financial Crisis Of 2008 Was Just A Warm Up Act For The Economic Horror Show That Is Coming  http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com   http://albertpeia.com/2008crisisjustwarmupforcomingcollapse.htm ‘The people out there that believe that the U.S. economy is experiencing a permanent recovery and that very bright days are ahead for us should have their heads examined.  Unfortunately, what we are going through right now is simply just a period of "hopetimism" between two financial crashes.  Things may seem relatively stable right now, but it won't last long.  The truth is that the financial crisis of 2008 was just a warm up act for the economic horror show that is coming.  Nothing really got fixed after the crash of 2008.  We are living in the biggest debt bubble in the history of the world, and it has gotten even bigger since then.  The "too big to fail" banks are larger now than they have ever been.  Americans continue to run up credit card balances like there is no tomorrow.  Tens of thousands of manufacturing facilities and millions of jobs continue to leave the country.  We continue to consume far more than we produce and we continue to become poorer as a nation.  None of the problems that caused the crisis of 2008 have been solved and we are even weaker financially than we were back then.  So why in the world are so many people so optimistic about the economy right now?

Just take a look at the chart posted below.  It shows the growth of total debt in the United States.  During the financial crisis of 2008 there was a little "hiccup", but the truth is that not much deleveraging really took place at all.  And since the recession "ended", total credit market debt has gone on to even greater heights....

http://albertpeia.com/Total-Credit-Market-Debt-Owed-440x264.png

So what does this mean for the future?

Well, if a small "hiccup" in the debt bubble caused so much chaos back in 2008, what is going to happen when this debt bubble finally bursts?

That is something to think about.

Sadly, most Americans seem oblivious to all of this.

If you go out to malls in the wealthy areas of America today, people are charging up a storm.  In all, Americans charged a whopping 2.5 trillion dollars on their credit cards during 2011.  Way too many people have already forgotten the lessons that we all learned back in 2008.

Of course some Americans pay off their credit cards every month, but way too many Americans are not doing that.  In 1980, Americans were carrying 54 million dollars in revolving credit balances.  Today, Americans are carrying 794 million dollars in revolving credit balances.

And student loan debt is an even bigger bubble than credit card debt is.  As I have written about previously, total student loan debt in America is rapidly approaching a trillion dollars.

So it looks like U.S. consumers have not learned to stay away from debt.

That is not good.

Well, what about the banks?

Has the financial system learned any lessons since 2008?

No, not really.

Sadly, the "too big to fail" banks are now even bigger than ever.  The total assets of the six largest U.S. banks increased by 39 percent between September 30, 2006 and September 30, 2011.  If they were to fail today, they would be even more of a threat to our financial system than they were back in 2008.

And our major banks continue to be very highly leveraged.  In fact, major banks all over the world are absolutely swamped with debt.

The following statistics come from Zero Hedge....

The U.S. banking system is leveraged 13 to 1.

The Japanese banking system is leveraged 23 to 1.

The French banking system is leveraged 26 to 1.

The German banking system is leveraged 32 to 1.

These are insane levels of leverage, and they are just inviting another major financial crisis.

Do you all remember Lehman Brothers?  The fact that they were leveraged so highly is what did them in back in 2008.  When the value of their holdings declined by just a little bit they were totally wiped out.

Well, during this next financial crisis large financial institutions are going to be wiped out all over the world.  Major banks all over the globe are going to be crying out for more bailouts when things take a turn against them.

They are making the exact same mistakes that they made before, and they are going to be expecting more government handouts when things go bad.

Will we ever learn?

So obviously the banking system has not learned any lessons.

What about the federal government?

Well, if you follow my blog regularly, you know that I love to write about how horrific U.S. government debt is.

Unfortunately, over the past four years things have gotten so much worse.

Back in 2008, the U.S. national debt crossed the 10 trillion dollar mark.

Just recently, it crossed the 15 trillion dollar mark.

So now we are in a much weaker position financially to respond to another major financial crisis.

Just check out the chart posted below.  This is a recipe for national financial suicide....

http://albertpeia.com/Federal-Government-Debt-440x264.png

During fiscal 2011, the Obama administration stole close to 150 million dollars from our children and our grandchildren every single hour.

At the moment, the legacy of debt that we are passing on to future generations is sitting a grand total of $15,351,406,294,640.49.

But keep in mind that it is going up every single hour.

Meanwhile, our ability to service that debt is declining.  We are rapidly getting poorer as a nation.

During 2011, the amount of money that left the United States exceeded the amount of money that entered the United States by more than a half a trillion dollars.

This gap is called a trade deficit, and it is absolutely ripping our economy to shreds.

For a moment, imagine Uncle Sam standing next to a giant pile of money on a map of the United States.  Then imagine a half a trillion dollars being taken out of that pile every single year.

So why haven't we totally run out of money yet?

Well, it is because we borrow those dollars back.  In order to maintain our false standard of living, our federal government, our state governments and our local governments have to go out and beg the rest of the world to lend us our dollars back.

Sadly, our government schools have "dumbed-down" the population so much that most of them don't even know what a "trade deficit" is anymore.

Meanwhile, our economic infrastructure is being gutted like a fish.

Look, I know that I go over this point over and over and over, but it is absolutely imperative that we all understand this.

The half a trillion dollars a year that leaves this country every year could have gone to support businesses and jobs inside the United States.

But instead it is going to support businesses and jobs on the other side of the world.

The consequences of this are absolutely devastating.

According to U.S. Representative Betty Sutton, an average of 23 manufacturing facilities a day closed down in the United States during 2010.  Overall, more than 56,000 manufacturing facilities in the United States have shut down since 2001.

Even many so-called "American companies" have been bought up by the rest of the world.  The following comes from a recent article posted on Economy In Crisis....

RCA is now a French company, Zenith is a Korean company. Frigidaire is a Swedish company. IBMs Personal Computer Divisionwith its 500 patentsis now a Chinese company. Westinghouse Nuclear Energys major shareholder is Toshibaa Japanese Company. Lucent Technologies, a former research division of AT&T, along with all the patents acquired from the beginning of the phone system, is now a French company. In 2008, Brazilian-Belgian brewing company InBev purchased the iconic American brewer Anheuser-Busch, makers of Budweiser. With the sale of these manufacturing companies, the future profit and technologies all belong to foreign entities.

We once had the greatest economic machine in the history of the world.

Now it is being dismantled and bought up by foreigners.

When America's economic infrastructure declines, that means that there are less jobs available for all of us.

As I wrote about the other day, the employment situation in this country is not getting better and we have never even come close to recovering from the recession that started back in 2008.

During 2008 and 2009, the U.S. economy lost millions of jobs.  Since the beginning of 2010, the percentage of the U.S. population that has had a job has remained very stable....

http://albertpeia.com/Employment-Population-Ratio1-440x264.png

Normally, when a recession ends the percentage of Americans that have a job bounces back pretty dramatically.

So considering the fact that the employment situation has never recovered from the last financial crisis, what is going to happen when the next financial crisis hits?

And most of the jobs that have been "created" during this so-called "recovery" have been low income jobs.  In fact, if you look closely at the employment numbers that were released last Friday, you will find that the vast majority of the "new jobs" were part-time jobs.

But you cannot pay a mortgage and support a family on a part-time job.

Sadly, the truth is that median household income in America has been steadily dropping over the past several years.  Tens of millions of American families are deeply struggling and more Americans than ever are falling into poverty.

Back in the year 2000, about one out of every nine Americans was living in poverty.  Today, about one out of every seven Americans is living in poverty.

All of this is causing a great deal of anxiety in America today.  Large numbers of Americans know that something has fundamentally changed, even if they don't understand the specifics.  That is one reason why sites such as this one have become so popular.  People want some answers.

And once people get some answers about what is really happening, they tend to want to prepare for the hard times that are coming.

In a few days, a new series on National Geographic entitled "Doomsday Preppers" premieres.  The mainstream media is starting to take notice of the growing "prepper" movement in America today.  It is estimated that there are at least 2 million "preppers" in the United States at this point.  Of course people are "prepping" for a whole host of reasons, but the number one concern among most groups of preppers is the economy.

As the economy crumbles, more Americans than ever have decided that it is not a good thing to be 100% dependent on the system.

Back in 2008 and 2009, millions of Americans suddenly lost their jobs.  Because they did not have any finances stored up, large numbers of them also lost their homes.  Many went from being solidly middle class to being out on the street in a matter of months.

That doesn't have to happen to you.  Instead of blowing your money on frivolous things, do what you can to set something aside for the difficult times that are on the horizon.

A lot of those "in the know" are quietly making their own preparations.  For example, legendary film director James Cameron (Avatar, Titanic and Terminator) has purchased more than 2600 acres of farmland in New Zealand and he is getting out of the U.S. for good apparently.

Unfortunately, most of us do not have the resources for something like that.  But what most of us can do is we can change our priorities and start focusing on the things that will help us survive the hard times that are coming…’

Guest Post: Counterfeit Money, Counterfeit PolicyCounterfeiting is illegal because it is the false creation of value. 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. A government based on rule of law would arrest these fraudsters and cons at the earliest possible convenience.

The Posts View The Senate didnt do enough to stop insider trading Editorial Board Theres still too much ambiguity on rules covering lawmakers.

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.

 

Drug war hypocrisy: drug trafficking’s big money benefits Big Brother and corrupt banksters  PF Louis | The hypocrisy of the war on drugs is centers on the amount of drug trafficking that benefits the CIA and international banking system.

The son of a convicted notorious mobster, John Gotti Jr, when asked in court if the family still dealt drugs cracked, “No, we can’t compete with the government.”

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.]

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

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

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.

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
