One of the tactics is to massage GDP and jobs data. True, this practice has been in place for over a decade, but the recent January jobs report from the BLS has set, shall we say, a new high-water mark for adjustments. According to the BLS, we ADDED 243,00 jobs that month. Thats an odd claim given that the BLS admits, in the very same report, that without adjustments, the US actually LOST 2.69 MILLION jobs in JanuaryThis is roughly a discrepancy of 3 MILLION jobs.   ,  MOODY'S Downgrades Italy, Portugal; Changes Outlook on France, UK to Negative...  , Rating Agencies vs Reggie Middleton Augmented Reality, Part 1 : Reggie Middleton : 02/14/2012 It's getting to the point where the rating agencies are so far behind the reality curve that they are putting the system at risk again, and again, and again... , Jeff Gundlach Live Webcast On "The Decline And Fall Of The Roman Empire"Market Spike Driven By Latest Bout Of Idiocy Out Of GreeceWondering why the market just viagra'ed up to green on absolutely nothing? , Juncker Buries Hopes Of An "Imminent" Greek Deal, EURUSD SlidingJim Grant On Gold-Backed Bonds And 'The Hope Leeches'"Uh, Marriner Eccles: We Have A Problem" - Obama Predicts He Will Breach Debt Ceiling Two Months Before ElectionGuest Post: It's Not Just Gasoline Consumption That's Tanking, It's All EnergyFinancial Illiteracy Widespread In America  Forbes  Robert Lenzner  ,  EU Says Many Members Vulnerable Feb 14th, 2012  (The Wall Street Journal)  ,  2012 Update: What Part III of the financial crisis will look like     http://pro.stansberryresearch.com/1011PSIENDVD/PPSIN223 http://albertpeia.com/WARNINGfromPorterStansberry.htm  ,   Why Did Economists Get It So Wrong in 2011?

State and federal governments have condoned forgery, perjury and fraudIs Okun's Law The Latest Casualty Of Central Planning...And BLS Seasonal AdjustmentsOkun's rule-of-thumb relates the long-term empirical finding that a country's unemployment rate is closely related to a country's output (or GDP) - perfectly sensible and comprehensible. In fact to be a little more explicit, it is the change in unemployment that is more notable in its relationship to the potential GDP (the output gap). His original work noted that a 3% increase in output corresponds to a 1% decline in unemployment rates (and/or rise in labor force participation, rise in hours worked, and rise in labor productivity) but as Goldman Sachs notes this week, Okun's Law has broken. As they point out, even though US real GDP growth has averaged a meager 2.5% pace since the end of the recession, the unemployment rate has fallen almost two percentage points from its peak. There are three implications, in our view: the unemployment rate is hopelessly miscalculated (and is much higher); potential growth is much lower than economists have been expecting (not such good news for real growth); and the multiplier effect of money has dropped structurally (in other words the implied money flow from more workers is not circulating the way it empirically has to juice growth). It seems to us that none of these are good for growth as the reality of a higher unemployment rate (BLS adjustments aside) is negative, lower potential for growth impacts earnings expectations (as we are already seeing in company and analyst outlooks which has perplexed those market watchers pinning their hopes on the jobless rate), and the balance sheet recessionary impacts of the 'employed' minimizing debt rather than maximizing potential gain is a further drag. Either way, as Goldman notes the potential growth rate going forward (2012 and 2013) is likely to remain quite weak, in the neighborhood of 2% in line with the CBO's dismal views and this could be further exacerbated by the drop in labor force participation we have noted vociferously. , Daves Daily: http://www.etfdigest.com  ACCIDENT-PRONE MARKETS  February 10, 2012 With volume remaining holiday light and many indicators signaling overbought conditions, weve suggested markets were an accident waiting to happen ,  Taxpayers Are Owed $133B From Bailouts    http://video.foxbusiness.com/v/1416049583001/taxpayers-are-owed-133b-from-bailouts/?playlist_id=87093  ,  Investors Take Note: A Seismic Shift Has Begun in China February 10th, 2012  http://gainspainscapital.com   ,   Anxiety over incomes hits consumer morale  , The Epic Farce Continues - US Attorneys General "Robosigned" A Foreclosure Settlement Which Does Not ExistProof Of LTRO Bank Stigma, Or Why Mario Draghi Is LyingObama Revises CBO Deficit Forecast, Predicts 110% Debt-To-GDP By End Of 2013, Worse Deficit In 2012 Than 2011Ben Bernanke FTMFW Quote Of The DayAnd the winner is...

Following that, we made a stronger case that the Libor, should really be abbreviated to LiEbor in "On the Uselessness of Libor" from June 2009, which alleged that this number is essentially manipulated, potentially with malicious intent. That alone got us a very unhappy retort from the British Banker Association (BBA) which is the banker-owned entity set to "determine" what the daily Libor fixing is based on how banks themselves tell us their liquidity conditions are. Well, as has been getting more and more obvious over the past two years, our allegations were 100% correct, and have now manifested in a series of articles digging through the dirt, manipulation and outright crime behind this completely fabricated number. And yet this should be the most aggravated offence in the capital markets, because LIBOR just so happens is the primary driver in determining implicit risk as a reference rate for $350 trillion worth of financial products. That's right - that one little number, now thoroughly discredited, has downtstream effects on $350,000,000,000,000.00 worth of notional assets. That's a lot. And while we are confident that nobody will ever go to prison for LIBOR fraud, which has explicitly been leading investors and speculators alike to believe that risk is far lower than where it truly is  ,  All The Worlds Gold by News  (NumberSlueth)  http://albertpeia.com/gold.jpg  ,  [ AP: I personally believe significant amounts of american gold reseves have been looted, amounts misstated consistent with the typical patterns of fraud / theft endemic to america in these rather grim, desperate times accompanied by pervasive fraud and corruption. ]  ,   University of Michigan consumer sentiment (prelim) fell to 72.5 in Feb, below market expectations of 74.0, vs 75.0 Jan.  ,  Violence erupts as Greece ponders tough terms for new bailout  ,  US trade gap widened to -$48.8 bln in Dec, near expectations of -$48.0 bln, vs -$47.06 bln in Nov.  ,   MARKETS SINK AND GREECE IS FALLING APART: Here's What You Need To Know  Business Insider  ,  Unemployment, Foreclosures, Rising Debts and Despair: AMERICAS SOCIAL CRISIS Bob Chapman | 2012 is going to be a difficult year   , 2-10-12   Leading Economist: Were In a No Win Situation This Is End of the World Type Stuff *Video*  Mac Slavo | This is an interview that shouldnt be missed http://www.prisonplanet.com/leading-economist-%E2%80%9Cwe%E2%80%99re-in-a-no-win-situation%E2%80%A6-this-is-end-of-the-world-type-stuff%E2%80%9D-video.html  ,    David Rosenberg: Bearish And Sticking To It The Wall Street Journal Rosenberg: We have had three years of fiscal deficits around 10% of GDP. Thats the sort of red ink generally reserved for world wars. We have zero percent policy rates now for three years and a pledge for another three, and on top of that, a central bank that has blown out its balance sheet to a level that is now equivalent to 20% of GDP. With this massive government incursion, wouldnt it make sense that the economy would have at least some modest growth? The question will ultimately be answered down the road as to how things look when all this largess unwinds at some point, the piper gets paid. Rosenberg goes on to describe how the economys dependence on government intervention The economy is sucking off Uncle Sams teat that is the primary source of this seemingly resilient economy. Over the past two years, the American publics reliance on public funds (housing goodies, expanded welfare, food stamps, extended jobless benefits and other subsidies) has surged 7.5% to 23% (67 million people supported). This metric usually goes down after recessions end but not this time. And to put it all in perspective, in the severe 1981-82 recession, there was only a 6% increase (and then it fell sharply).

All we can add to Taylor's analysis, especially in light of today's incremental easing in ECB collateral requirements, is that the biggest beneficiary by far of what in a few months will be another multi-trillion balance sheet expansion, is and continues to be hard, non-dilutable, i.e., real, money. Because as fiat currency loses all relevance in a world in which it is printed on a daily basis by the central banks, whether or not we end up with a Weimar scenario, the cash thrown out by the even profitable companies will be increasingly more meaningless. , Economists Surprised Again By Unemployment Claims, Should Not Have Been : ilene : 02/09/2012 - 21:37 Lots of motion, little progress. , Drudgereport: WIRE: Foreclosure Deal to Spur Home Seizures... , Israel teams with terror group to kill Irans nuclear scientists, U.S. officials tell NBC News NBC News | The group is financed, trained and armed by Israels secret service.  ,  The High Cost of 0% Rate Feb 8th, 2012 (24hGold) The interminable extension by the US Federal Reserve on the 0% rate into 2014 represents history in the making.

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.

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.

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.

Greece Has No Idea What Its Gotten Itself Into February 6th, 2012 http://gainspainscapital.com   Grahams note: the following is an excerpt from a recent issue of my Private Wealth Advisory newsletter with some additional research I did on the economy of Greece.

The Greeks have no idea what theyve gotten themselves into.

A few facts about Greece

First off, demographics wise, Greece is a disaster.

Real Clear Markets shares the following facts.

As if this werent bad enough, the unemployment rate for Greeks aged 15-24 is 40%. For Greeks aged 24-34 its 22%. Imagine being a young person, not being able to find a job, and then knowing that huge percentage of your efforts (42%) are going to be taxed to fund all the crazy social welfare programs for Greeces aging population. Small wonder that seven out of ten young Greeks want to work abroad and four of out ten are actively seeking work outside of Greece.

Also, its no surprise that those Greeks who do have jobs, dont want to pay this massive tax load. Consider that the Greek working population is roughly seven million people. 95 percent of them declare annual income of less than 30,000 euros.

So thats the situation in Greece. Terrible age demographics, an economy thats in the toilet, and politicians who simply dont get it.

Now lets consider whos actually got the cash to potentially help Greece from a default, and what they want in return.

Were talking about Germany.

For most of the Greece Crisis, the supposed saviors were the IMF, the ECB, and Germany. That all changed in the last month. The IMF has called for more funds. Those funds arent coming. Remember, the IMF is largely a US-backed organization. And the US sure as heck wont go for a US-backed bailout of Europe.

So the IMF is out of the picture in terms of helping Greece in any meaningful way.

Now, how about the ECB? Well Germany has told the ECB to its face that if it continues to monetize EU sovereign bonds that Germany will walk out on the Euro. So the ECB may continue to meddle in the bond market to avert a Crisis, but if it ever decides to publicly state it will be monetizing EU debt going forward, Germanys out and the Euro implodes.

Which leaves Germany as the official backstop/ savior for Greece. And heres how Germany recently address the IMF when the IMF asked Germany for help with the Greek situation.

Berlin resists pressure to give Greece more

 Germany, the biggest and richest country in the euro zone, has provided the bulk of the funds for the bailouts of Ireland, Portugal and Greece. Now it is firmly rejecting calls to come up with yet more funds for Greece to compensate for any shortfalls in a debt relief deal with private creditors.

On Friday Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle defended Berlins tough stance. The Greeks, he insisted, should show that they are willing to implement reforms before getting more money.

We Germans do not expect from anyone in Europe more than what we are asking from our own citizens. We cannot explain to taxpayers in Germany that they have to do things that others do not want to do while at the same time asking for their money, Westerwelle said in Brussels.

He pointed out that Germany had already come up over 200 billion euros ($262 billion) for the bailout funds. It makes no sense he said, to give more money to Greece, if we dont know whether the reforms which have been agreed upon will be really implemented. He argued that coming up with more money just lessened the pressure to reform.

http://www.globalpost.com/dispatch/news/regions/europe/germany/120127/berlin-resists-pressure-give-greece-more

Diplomatically, this is about as close as Germany can come to telling the IMF to stuff it. Germany knows the IMF doesnt have the funds and wont be getting them (the IMF is primarily a US-backed entity and the US wont stand for a US-backed European bailout).

Indeed, just a few days after Germany said nein to more Greece bailouts, it then threw the following suggestion out:

German proposal seeks EU commissioner with sweeping powers to directly control Greeces budget

Germany is proposing that debt-ridden Greece temporarily cede sovereignty over tax and spending decisions to a powerful eurozone budget commissioner before it can secure further bailouts, an official in Berlin said Saturday.

The idea was quickly rejected by the European Unions executive body and the government in Athens, with the EU Commission in Brussels insisting that executive tasks must remain the full responsibility of the Greek government, which is accountable before its citizens and its institutions.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/business/markets/german-proposal-seeks-eu-commissioner-with-sweeping-powers-to-directly-control-greeces-budget/2012/01/28/gIQAxHWgXQ_story.html

In plain terms, push has now to come shove in Europe. Germany permitted the ECB to implicitly monetize various EU sovereign nations debts during 2011 because Germany hadnt yet taken the steps to prepare for a collapse of the EU.

It now has. In the last six months, Germany has:

1)   Passed legislation permitting it to leave the Euro without leaving the EU.

2)   Passed legislation permitting it to nationalize German banks during times of Crisis.

3)   Demanded that German banks in general raise capital.

In plain terms, Germany is now prepared to walk if it has to. And its made its demands very clear: if you want German funds, you will need to give up fiscal sovereignty.

Its also made it clear that it will tolerate neither the issuance of Eurobonds OR direct and open monetization by the ECB.

In other words, Germany has said its our way or the highway. True, this borders on an act of financial warfare, but in the end, Germany has never truly been interested in a monetary union so much as a political union.

Germany will not suffer inflation (theyve seen how monetization works out, e.g. Weimar), nor internal discord (in November 78% of Germans thought the Euro would survive by December 60% of them though the Euro was a bad idea.) Germany is going to look after its own domestic interests.

Put another way, if Greece wants to remain Greece its no getting any more funds and its bond markets will implode. The alternative is that if Greece wants German funds, its going to have to give up its fiscal sovereignty and essentially become a vassal state for Germany. End of story.

With that in mind, I believe 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.

So if you think the EU Crisis is over, think again. True weve got until March 20th for the Greek deal to be reached, but things have already gotten to the point that Germany has essentially issued its ultimatum. Either Greece hands over fiscal sovereignty, or it defaults in a BIG way…’

Moreover, I truly and seriously think they are a bunch of a**h***s. Indeed, their 'games' are pathetic and an insult to intelligence and typify the nerdy, neurotic persona of their founder(s) zuckerberg et als (I don't begrudge them their money but he is painfully neurotic from what Ive discerned);  and, contrary to the spin, ****************** I initially signed up for website representation and was 'tagged' by some old friends from high school and even earlier without which I'd otherwise be inclined to delete my facebook account.  If they were interested, they could sign up on the LATimes site, etc., themselves. This process of commenting is not brain surgery and for 'politically motivated' companies as facebook and the aforementioned, have the potential for a greater chilling effect on 1st amendment protected discourse. That facebook has become intrusively political is a testament to their 'hearing footsteps' of a fad of 'modern-day-hula-hoop' proportion; at the least, of 'also ran status' and hence, their entree into such arenas as this as the unavoidable but redundant 'middleman'. Publishers don't need them and should realize that. At most, it should be optional, which wasn't the case for some comments, despite my being signed in with the LATimes site, username, alpeia.

Frankly, i avoid commenting systems that use the Facebook model. I don't need my friends getting my comments on subjects they could care less about, or getting my comments that are diametrically opposed to their own particular viewpoints. We all have differing viewpoints on matters, and most of us know not to discuss those subjects with our friends that may (or are) rabid or reactionary.
 
So...when I post a comment regarding my leftist Kennedy Democrat leanings, I don't need it to be sent to one of my best friends who is a die hard Republican and former "operative" in Massachusetts politics. Similarly, I'm an agnostic while my brother is a born-again Baptist. Do I want him to get missives via Facebook every time I post somewhere regarding the lack of logic exhibited by the true believers?
 
We are all bombarded with information overload every day, taking up more and more of our time and brain bandwidth. I only want information that is relevant to me, and I'm sure my friends, family and business colleagues feel the same way.
 
Just think of the way the newspaper or LATimes website is structured: designed in sections so that the people interested in sports, food, politics etc. can access that info readily, without having to sift through and look at a bunch of extraneous info they could care less about.

Sad day for me!

We had to put down my great companion Nikki down today. Almost 12 years old Great Pyrennes (they were bred do guard sheep and protect them from bears and wolves). Truly a great dog who had a mind of her own and was loyal and I will really miss her. I have owned 3 great dogs in my life and all have lived to old age for a dog. It truly makes your heart feel sad when you finally have to say good-bye.

I hope my kids pull the plug on me so I don't suffer or are ever a burden to them.

Nikki, I will miss you!

Washington Monument remains closed msnbc.com ) which brought to mind that long weekend excursion to D.C. you may recall (just a few years ago) upon Wals recommendation since AU was sporting an outdoor concert [Little Richard(whats up with that?) turned out to be the warm-up band to the featured band, Procol Harem] and there was to be a massive protest / demonstration / camp-out at the monuments (and of course to hear Forest Gumps speech just kidding). The (evening) concert in their amphitheater was cool and stylishly late 60ish, early 70ish. Its at this point that youll have to rely on my memory of the events immediately thereafter. As always, we were in search of babes of easy virtue (the free-lovin hippie girls were made to order for expedient, pseudo-hippies at best like us looking for a proverbial roll in the hay, euphemistically speaking). In fact, you shrewdly from a hawking perspective hooked up with a bunch of hippies at the concert and proceeded to get quite stoned while smoking what you assumed was just pot throughout. At the end of the concert, Wal gathered us up to head to the monuments where huge numbers were camped out for the rallies the following day. When we finally found you, you were sitting with just a few of the bunch you were with, unable to speak, stand, or move at all. You seemed totally paralyzed. We asked them what they were smoking to which they replied, pot laced with angel dust (pcp-I didnt even know what it was). They assured us youd be okay by morning. Finally, since Wal seemed to be in a rush to get to the monuments, we literally had to guide you by arm to the car and through the monument campout grounds at a very brisk clip for reasons only Wal could explain, stopping to speak to no one [ You guys had mentioned that at Woodstock (I couldnt get off work at Arcola Pool) Wal was a bit freaked by all the havoc and particularly the unsanitary conditions, even to the point he was refusing to check out the naked babes swimming openly without inhibition which you guys were really into, by your accounts. ] You were indeed fine by the next day, and we partied / got drunk and we wound up at The Waff. Wal was totally drunk, had a black water pistol (looked like a .38 cal) , and was squirting everyone. Suddenly, out jumped two plain clothes cops (I assume DC Police Detectives FBI always announce / show their badges). Wal was so drunk he was still laughing and shooting the water pistol even as they slammed him up against the wall, guns drawn and pointed to his head; even as I was yelling at their over-reaction; and that it was a water pistol. As bad as that was, in todays environment, wed likely have been shot. (I think this was the same weekend as the concert).
Happy Birthday Eggi!

I could not sleep last night and went for a bike ride at 3:00 AM. No one on the road but made me think that we are getting a lot closer to the backstrech. And I used to think my parents were ancient.
 
Gary Wallen
ALSO FOR MY BASKETBALL CHALLENGE I WENT TO THE PARK TO SHOOT YESTERDAY. I PROBABLY HAVE NOT SHOT IN ABOUT 8 YEARS AND DID A FEW WARMUPS AND PROCEEDED TO MAKE 37 FREETHOWS IN A ROW. I THOUGHT THAT WAS PRETTY IMPREESIVE FOR A 61 OLD.

I had an interesting challange from a 33 year old guy at work who never even
played high school ball. He said he could kick my ass in hoops. I know I can
still shoot, because you never lose that and I now I can always post my fat ass
to the hoop. I wonder if i could still kick his butt a age 61. My guess is a
definite yes .GAME ON.

Gotback from the dentist with two new crowns for my front teeth from my bycyle accident. Amaszing what they do with modern technology. No more making molds, they can scan your teeth and you get a perfect match. Plus, I got great feedback from the 30ish hygentist that I am now good looking again...!!!! Jill is in San Diego visiting our son Jason and I wish I could be there.

 

 

 

 

Gary Wallen
I went for a bike ride, fell and broke two teeth. My dentist is on vacation this week. Probably the ugliest smile in history. Trying to let the trauma subside before I go to his back up. It sucks getting Old.

I have learned to appreciate life much better and try to enjoy every day now that I am only a year away from being eligible for Social Security. I still find that very hard to say! I feel like I'm turning into my father, which is really scary. Everybody enjoy each day as if it may be your last and don't let the little things in life bring you down.
Gary Wallen
To everybody who wished me a happy b-day, Thanks...!!! Where has the time gone? It feels like yesterday I was in HS playing sports, not 43 yrs ago. I still remember going to Woodstock, going Up-State, the Canteen dances, Jimmy Byrnes at the Jersey Shore, the Prom with Jill Baines and much more.

Hey Wal:

I could have made this more cruel (but our longstanding friendship, upon reflection, got in the way and I deleted some) ***************. To save you from yourself and from becoming a facebook / internet bully, I write (and I'm smilin' as I do so) as follows:

 

Wal, I'm surprised and take umbrage at your insensitive remarks and on behalf of short people everywhere, I write in response to your observation immediately hereafter: '12-17-10 Gary Wallen Chalk it up to cold Darwinism, cultural standards, or the simple feminine desire to have a man around who can reach the top shelf, but just about every stature study in the last 20 years confirms what short guys already know: women prefer taller men.[ Wal, I believe this to be among the greatest insights into 'short people' since randy newman's hit song of the same name.] ...It's nice to be 6''5". I didn't know the average height for a man in the USA is only 5'9".' [***** And, I'm sure that 'great stature thing' was what the dinosaurs were sayin' just before ..... then there were the archaic modern human antecessors ..... I think we should ask the Chinese, Japanese, etc., what they think ... my own (different female sexual partner) liasons numbering in the low to mid hundreds (no exaggeration - and I can truthfully say that every girl among them I truly liked) probably meant, fortunately for me, said girls had not read your surveys ... The only direct experience (hardly a random sampling for statisticalvalidity) concerned that attractive 'Ridgewood girl' in the convertible with a mini-skirt that left little to the imagination who chose a short guy (me at 5'6" over that 3 varsity letter man you kept reminding her - I won't mention your dangling, by a string of saliva, throat lozenge that landed on her lap which I'm sure helped 'seal the deal') over that big guy (you at 6'5") ... Then there's Napoleon, Putin, Jefferson, Washington, etc.. There's also danger (liasons dangereux) as Julian Assange can attest to and I also experienced in light of my RICO litigation on my 'road to interim / temporary sacrificial celibacy', which has been great for my concentration ... It's brain size / capacity, short and simple, in the new century particularly, as it always was! ( About 23 million years ago hominoids appeared in the form of primative apes. It was from one of said primative apes that the family of man, Hominidae branched off 6 to 5 million years ago. The bigger brain and consequent ability to manipulate environment were the key to evolutionary success. The Darwinian model of a steady, gradual 'fine-tuning' of natural selection has been totally disavowed by all experts in favor of the view that natural selection is a conservative force, acting rather relatively quickly, to maintain a species adaptation. )

 

Finally, Wal, you may remember the first time we had gotten stoned. I was living in Seacrest Beach (summer, 1970) and you came down for the week. Two girls I had previously met on the beach apparently scored some pot (and probably needed a place to smoke it) stopped by; and we smoked some (I snitched a little which we were to continue smoking later.) Truth be told, in what was probably the only instance where being short was of a distinct advantage, I was paired with the smaller (about 5'4"), very cute and pretty blonde cheerleader from Parsipany, while you got the near 6' but also attractive friend. The pretty blonde and I retreated to my bedroom. Unfortunately for you, the tall girl you were with was bitchy and witchy (you may recall she was a self-proclaimed witch who had also dubbed me, 'Alday'. Our attitude concerning such personality quirks was one that comported with our rather shallow, jockish, but very expedient mindset with girls; viz., as long as they were attractive and 'put out', just fine ... or as they say here (in southern California) in the valley, 'whatever'). When they left, we smoked what was left of the pot, and you immediately began cooking up food (munchies) and as I watched you, you appeared to be moving in a very jerky but slow motion fashion (like a slow motion, 15 fps old silent film) to which I called your attention more than once also attributing same to your being stoned ... Finally, you abruptly stated that it was I who was stoned which I hadn't realized up to that point but suddenly realized was true. But it was also true that we were both stoned. ] ... JUST FUNNIN' WITH YOU, WAL! Regards, Al

 

----- As I previously related to Charlie Crane regarding that '21 questions thing' on facebook, and in light of your prior inquiries: The following is what I'm waiting on (note the disks sent twice to the FBI were waylaid by the u.s. postal service and finally delivered by UPS, causing delays). Hey Charlie! Thank you for your vote of confidence and kind remarks. I think you're correct on all counts. The last I heard (1992) you were doing extremely well (I think running a new car dealership and making loads of money, etc.). I remember in 7th grade you kept the class in stitches with your spontaneous, often hilarious humor, and in high school you were very prominent and tough on the football field. However, you did err regarding a girl (initials B.R.) in our 7th grade class who while wearing tea shirts then (you reminded her), wound up by high school having among the biggest pairs of t***s in the school.

 

The following is what I'm waiting on (note the disks sent twice to the FBI were waylaid by the u.s. postal service and finally delivered by UPS, causing delays). Regards, Al

Dear Sir:

 

I enclose herewith 3 copies of the within DVD rom autorun disk (which will open in your computer’s browser) as per your office’s request as made this day (the disk and contents have been scanned by Avast, McAfee, and Norton which I’ve installed on my computer to prevent viral attacks / infection and are without threat). I also include 1 copy of the DVD as filed with the subject court as referenced therein (which files are also included on the aforesaid 3 disks in a separate folder named ‘112208opocoan’). The (civil) RICO action (as you’re aware, the RICO Act is a criminal statute which provides a civil remedy, including treble damages and attorney fees, as an incentive for private prosecution of said claims probably owing to the fact that the USDOJ seems somewhat overwhelmed and in need of such assistance given the seriousness and prevalence of said violations of law which have a corrupting influence on the process, and which corruption is pervasive). A grievance complaint against Coan was also filed concurrently with the subject action and held in abeyance pending resolution of the action which was illegally dismissed without any supporting law and in contravention of the Order of The Honorable Robert N. Chatigny, Chief Judge, USDC, District Connecticut. The files below the horizontal rule are the referenced documents as filed. (Owing to the damage to the financial interests of both the U.S. and the District of Congresswoman Roybal-Allard, viz., Los Angeles, the Qui Tam provisions of the Federal False Claims Act probably would apply and I would absent resolution seek to refer the within to a firm with expertise in that area of the law with which I am not familiar). The document in 5 pages under penalty of perjury I was asked to forward to the FBI office in New Haven is probably the best and most concise summary of the case RICO Summary to FBI Under Penalty of Perjury at Their Request (5 pages) [ ricosummarytoFBIunderpenaltyofperjury.pdf http://albertpeia.com/ricosummarytoFBIunderpenaltyofperjury.pdf ].

Thank you for the birthday wish, and though somewhat remiss in such things as this I'll make sure I don't miss yours. It's springtime and 'back when' as now, the same meant spring break. In discussing spring break with the instructor at the LATTC workout facility where I worked out, I told him the story you may recall of our spring break excursion to Fort Lauderdale / Daytona ('Where the Girls Are'). I also told him that you guys would never let me live this down ... but that I deserved not being able to live this down ... he couldn't stop laughing. Though set up by Steve with a great pad, viz., Harvey's plush apartment, we were not able to get any babes back to said pad. Indeed, the prevalence of 'sopers(sic)'(muscle relaxants/downs) made Steve's apartment, despite early unbridled enthusiasm including 'air guitars' to 'Gimme Shelter', look like the sight of a bomb blast with bodies strewn about, having 'fallen out' (except for that one 'curious' guy whom we'd invariably find struggling to stay awake and not 'fall out'), when we returned from our (unsuccessful) hawking rounds on the strip. We found this quite amusing and stuck to our 'smoke/boone's farm apple wine' regimen. We then went to Daytona where we met 3 attractive girls whose hardluck story was that despite having rented for the week, the landlord of the motel said they were to leave (in favor of some guys who had probably paid him extra). In what I described to some as 'my first legal case', I felt this to be wrong (I had business law and at the least this was breach of contract) and threatened to go to authorities / mayor's office to register a complaint. He relented, and the girls kept their room and came back to ours. We smoked hashish and we all got totally stoned. The truth is I was so stoned, I couldn't make up my mind which girl to go after and was as you aptly put it, 'floatin''. Daytona / floater, you guys rightfully got on my case for that one. I'll never live that down.

Hello Ellen:

 

Thank you for the second year in a row for the birthday wish, and though somewhat remiss in such things as this I'll make sure I don't miss yours. You may recall (just a few years ago) at Steve Marcus' Bar Mitzvah at B'Nai Birth (?) how I walked into the chapel sans yarmilke and shawl and got a few looks. Your Dad interupted his duties to attend to my 'lapse in protocol' and escorted me to a separate room and supplied with same. He seemed amused by it all which I thought was very cool; and, I thought to myself what an nice, intelligent, and balanced man he was.[ In today's environment, such as it is, I would probably have been accused of anti-semitism and taken out back and shot ... just kidding! (such an accusation would have been ridiculous then as now). ]

Doug:

 

Thank you for the second year in a row for the birthday wish, and though somewhat remiss in such things as this I'll make sure I don't miss yours. I could not help but notice your eclectic taste in and knowledge of such a wide variety of music. I've pretty simple musical taste (classic rock - ie., Beatles, Stones, Doors, Yes, Grand Funk, jefferson Starship, Supertramp, Creedence, Fleetwood Mac, etc.), some pop (ie., Cats, etc.), and of course, classical. I did see a reference to roller skating and you may recall our 'wild sessions' of same at the Church gym. I must say that to this day I'm somewhat ashamed of our youthful indiscretion / bad judgment in subtly mocking 'little hooky'.

Hi Neal:

 

Thank you for the second year in a row for the birthday wish, and though somewhat remiss in such things as this I'll make sure I don't miss yours. When I scan FB 'headlines' I can't help but notice your beautiful family which probably makes you a living American testimonial to the beauty and benefits of Ireland, and as well, very proud.

Thank you for the second year in a row for the birthday wish, and though somewhat remiss in such things as this I'll make sure I don't miss yours. Sorry to hear of your medical difficulties and my best wishes for speedy recovery. As for your jersey government complaints, I've found mob-infested jersey to be totally hopeless [ You might find this link interesting re: same  http://www.albertpeia.com/ricosummarytoFBIunderpenaltyofperjury.pdf    (I'm waiting on the FBI whose position will determine mine)  - plus, as pertains to the political scenario including the mob, sean hannity lives in jersey, so what can you expect.  ] .

 

I include the following which in the process of updating / completing my skills / knowledge  base were part of exercises therein (also on my website):

 

I support the police 100% for good reason and previously wrote: CITY ON EDGE: Cash-Strapped Newark, new jersey Forced To Lay Off 14% Of Police Force... [ From decades old (1978-1985) direct personal experience with newark, n.j., the police are the absolute last cuts that can be afforded to be made. Indeed, while walking through Military Park (a sliver of a “park” - more a pedestrian thoroughfare/cement walks) in newark, new jersey on the way to the bank during lunch hour, I heard the clearly audible screams/cries of what turned out to be an old lady on the ground with blood streaming from her mouth. I ran toward the sound of the cries, the source of which I could not see because there were so many people in and about this thoroughfare so as to block any vision of the source of the cries. When I came to the woman, on the ground, blood streaming from her mouth, I asked what happened, to which she responded she had been hit in the mouth and knocked to the ground, her purse stolen/put inside her shopping bag, and she pointed out the criminal casually now walking across the main street. Nobody stopped to help her, many having passed her by. I slammed the thug to the ground so hard that, in light of all the blood and confusion (limbic system / adrenalin flow) I thought I had been stabbed (the blood was from his elbows hitting the pavement so hard - no one helped / a crowd gathered / an undercover cop happened along). When I testified at the Grand Jury Proceeding I made sure his threat on my life was set forth in prima facie fashion so as to maximize the DA’s position with both felonies ( he went to prison – pled out ). The other case I wrote about here ( This was included on my website in the Psychology forum discussion of ‘bystander effect’ / diffusion of responsibility. ) - Having had occasion to have run down a mugger in newark, n.j. who apparently had followed a girl from the bank on her way to the bursar to pay tuition, though in pretty good shape, I was astounded by how totally exhausting such a pursuit was, how much like rubber my arms were when I traded punches with the perpetrator, and truth be told, if I had a flashlight on my belt, I have little doubt that I would have probably used it to subdue the perp (a police officer here in California was the object of intense criticism for having used a flashlight to subdue a criminal after a long chase so I included that here) . The girl was not that seriously injured, did get her pocketbook and tuition back, and the criminal went to jail. The other thing about such a pursuit that amazed me was that no one else assisted the girl or me despite being in a position to do so). (Other newark / new jersey and new york, n.y. metro, viz., ie., connecticut, and of course, d.c., d.c. metro, viz., ie., virginia experience … corrupt federal judges as maryanne trump barry, sam alito, shiff, matz (california), hall, underhill, dorsey, etc.. Defacto bankrupt america’s so-called system is pervasively corrupt and broken (AP)   Abolish the corrupt, costly, economically wasteful lifetime extravagantly appointed federal courts - see RICO case              http://www.albertpeia.com/112208opocoan/ricosummarytoFBIunderpenaltyofperjury.pdf

Hey Wal:

Happy, healthy new year to you and your family. My changed number was to 'magic jack' (I recommend it) since my att/sbc (jersey / bushland) phone line became unusable, affecting my dsl line which I dropped in favor of Time Warner Cable / Internet. I last spoke with the FBI in January, 2011, who informed me that 'they printed out the documents on the disks', which is, in their somewhat cryptic way of saying, a good thing. Their position will determine mine. I'll let you know when I do.

Regards,

The correspondence I received from the Congresswoman by way of email attachment (apparent but typical problem with my mail) along with my response thereto is included on the 3 disks as fbicorrespondencereyes.htm . With regard to the calls to the FBI’s LA and New Haven, CT offices: There was one call to the LA office and I was referred to the Long Beach, CA office where I personally met with FBI Agent Jeff Hayes to whom I gave probative evidentiary documents of the money laundering which he confirmed as indicative of same (he was transferred from said office within approximately a month of said meeting and his location was not disclosed to me upon inquiry). The matter was assigned to FBI Agent Ron Barndollar and we remained in touch for in excess of a decade until he abruptly retired (our last conversation prior to his retirement related to the case and parenthetically, Rudy Giuliani whose father I stated had been an enforcer for the mob to which he registered disbelief and requested I prove it, which I did – he served 12 years in prison, aggravated assault/manslaughter? – and no, there is no Chinese wall of separation – Andrew Maloney’s the one that prosecuted gotti).

(continued)

Al Peia

‎(cont’d)
In contradistinction to the statement in said correspondence, there is a plethora of information including evidence supporting the claims set forth in the RICO VERIFIED COMPLAINT (see infra). Such includes and as set forth in the case, inter alia,

1. A judgment had been entered in my favor in the case, United States District Court Case #3:93cv02065(AWT)(USDCJ Alvin Thompson), worth approximately now in excess of $300,000 remains unaccounted for and which could be used for payment to creditors, Los Angeles, etc..
2. Counsel Robert Sullivan on my behalf documented by way of certification upon investigation that Alan Shiff, USBCJ, had falsely stated a dismissal upon which false statement he predicated a retaliatory and spurious contempt proceeding against me causing substantial damage, and for which he sought Judicial Notice of those and related proceedings as did I in some of my filings.
3. The Order of Dismissal With Prejudice by Alan Shiff, USBCJ, owing to Defendant Coan’s failure to file anything whatsoever by the court’s deadline causing creditors and me substantial damages: [ Shiff Order of Dismissal With Prejudice on Coan’s Failure to File Page 1 Page 2 ]
4. Defendant Coan had filed an action against me to prevent me from suing him which necessitated me to fly to Connecticut for a hearing before The Honorable Robert N. Chatigny, Chief Judge, USDC, District of Connecticut, who denied Coan’s requested relief as to Coan but precluded my action against Shiff (although there is no immunity, judicial or otherwise, for criminal acts, ie., fraud connected with a case under Title 11, USC, etc.) . [ transcript in pertinent part - crossexamofcoanbypeia.pdf ]
5. Newly appointed judge, Maryanne Trump Barry, Donald Trump’s sister, was assigned the RICO case despite the conflict of interest in light of hundreds of thousands of dollars of illegal (drug) money being laundered through the Trump casinos by the RICO defendants, and despite my motion to recuse her which motion she heard herself and denied, and U.S. Trustee Hugh Leonard with whom I met personally refused to join or file a separate motion to recuse and not long thereafter left said office for private practice at Cole, Shotz, et als on retainer with the RICO defendants as his primary client.
6. Probative and evidentiary documents, affidavits, exhibits, including those turned over to FBI Agent Jeff Hayes in Long Beach, CA, had been given to Assistant U.S. Attorney Jonathan Lacey with whom I met personally at the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Newark, N.J., at which time Samuel Alito was U.S. Attorney, and went over said documents and their probative value with him. Within approximately a month thereafter upon inquiry I was told that Jonathon Lacey was no longer with the office, that the file/documents could not be located, and that there was no further information available concerning contacting him or his location. I thereupon delivered by hand, copies of said documents to the office of then U.S. Attorney Alito, addressed to him, with assurance they would go directly to him. In addition to being inept [ I looked in on the one mob case he had brought, bungled, lost (accidently on purpose?) since I was suing some mob-connected under RICO and the court (I had known / previously met outside of court the judge Ackerman through a client) was absolute bedlam and a total joke since incompetent corrupt Alito brought in all 20 mob defendants (rather than prosecute one or a few to flip them first) who feigning illness had beds/cots in the courtroom along with their moans during testimony and had the jury in stitches. As much as I hate the mob, it truly was funny, if not so tragic.], Alito is also corrupt (and maybe corrupt because he is inept). After a reasonable (but still rather short) time I called to determine the status and was told that Alito was no longer with the Office of the U.S. Attorney, that he was (appointed) a federal judge, and that neither the documents nor any file or record of same could be located. Alito did parley the same / cover-up into quid pro quo direct lifetime appointment to the Court of Appeals, 3rd circuit, despite the absence of judicial experience or successful tenure as U.S. Attorney (Maryanne Trump Barry as well). This is the same Sam Alito that now sits on the purported highest court in the land. The real application of the illegal rule ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’.

There is applicable insurance / surety coverage and neither LA, nor creditors, nor I should continue to have been damaged by this brazened corrupt and illegal scenario, which should be resolved in accordance with the meaningful rules of law apposite thereto.

Sincerely,

Hi Lorraine:
Thanks for the tip. I could always use some weight loss; but, frankly, when I so choose I use the 'old wrestling diet' of not eating. You look healthy. I remember in first grade, we used to compare lunches in our 'little lunch boxes' (do they still use them?) and you gave a thumbs up to my least favorite lunch 'cheese sandwich', saying your grandfather told you that cheese was good for your teeth, which made my subsequent least favorite lunches more palatable. Wal (Gary Wallen) has always been a cheese aficionado, so much so that he earned the nickname 'cheese' / 'cheeseburger' at American U. where we used to visit Wal on a very fun campus. (I can attest to Wal's affinity for same from our 'shoretime party days' and when we worked together at Arcola Pool).

Regards,

Al

Interestingly, the former FBI Director Louis Freeh with whom I dealt, who unfortunately had jersey boy roots, had cashed out, left the FBI, and now has Italian Citizenship, etc.). The proximity to San Diego would facilitate your seeing your son (I assume he's Navy) but it would be impolitic to discuss such now since I did, appropriately, sue the government which did not win me friends nor influence people therein but rather I suspect got me on one of their "lists" owing to their infinite state of paranoia (I say with no exaggeration that the rest of the nation's citizens have been screwed more thoroughly by the incompetent, corrupt elements in the government as well). I know I don't have to tell you what you already know, that you'll always be one of my best friends. I have already taken steps toward a position outside the country through a local contact's contact, my passport current, absent favorable resolution.

the J.V. coach), which sport I enjoyed; and in a meeting arranged by Dan Deluca (I had won a tournament in junior high and the match against the rival Thomas Jefferson Junior High) with Coach Szura wherein Szura nicely but candidly told me that although I had made the team, "that I wasn't the tallest of angels" (which I thought was very funny and we all laughed) and essentially I'd be warming the bench while Deluca guaranteed me a varsity letter for wrestling the easy matches since varsity wrestler Richard Zocco was having difficulty making weight (he never made weight). As trite and cliched as it sounds, it was the varsity letter guarantee
that sealed the deal (and in my mind, the prospective "help with the babes therefrom" - actually, it was only the pretty sophomores with whom it ultimately paid dividends so to speak - how very high school). I had a great Coach in Roger Saunders who recruited me to NYU (Roger and his brother Richard, a CIA agent/mechanic, were both national champions). Wrestling has always been an important learning experience for me. Such a kind and humble remark as yours

Hi Al,
 
I know of you from my old wrestling coach, Ron Pollack.  I know that you wrestled at NYU, and that you won the Met Championships.  I am writing a book about my own experiences in wrestling, judo, and ju jitsu.  I wrestled in the Met championships in 1984 when they were held at NYU, and I remember seeing an old newspaper article they had on display that talked about you winning the Mets in '72 or '73.  You beat Pollack in the finals.  Pollack's coach was quoted in the article as saying that Ron "gassed out", I'm assuming from nerves.  I am really interested in the phenomenon of "choking" in a sports event due to being nervous.  I was wondering if you had any memories you could share about this particular match?  I know it was a long time ago, but if you do remember anything I would appreciate whatever you could share.

Hello Ethan:

The mother of one of our team mates worked with Ron Pollack's dad who kept telling her how badly Ron Pollack was going to beat me (some others played him up saying he consistently beat his team mate stu pruzansky by substantial margins and other such things). In fact, he took an early lead with a take-down that he was quite good at and I was looking for (something between a firemans' carry and a barrel role)[1972]. However, by the end of the match, he was quite haggard, in tears, and I actually had to hold him up on the podium. My tougher match was the semi's where I met two-time defending Met Champion Ed Rufrano (he got a special trophy for scoring the most team points over a period of time). He was quite strong and although I won, I had slipped a cervical disk (for which I ultimately needed traction - I couldn't even do a push-up after a couple of days which is very humbling when one relies so much on will-power). I had also beaten Ron in the finals of the Freshman Met Tournament. I was injured by the end of the season in the two prior intervening years (interestingly, the neurologist for the herniated disk pointed out that my bones were relatively small compared to my musculature/body-mass). I was fortunate to have a great coach in Roger Saunders (Roger and his brother Richard, a former CIA Agent/Mechanic, were both National Champions). I couldn't imagine Roger saying one of his wrestlers "gassed out", even if true. Ron certainly didn't "choke" in the first period, if at all.

I really appreciate your insights about this.  I never got a chance to speak to Ron about his own college wrestling days.  I only knew him when I was in  high school, where he was coaching a bunch of local high school wrestlers on a part time basis.  He was also helping out at his alma mater
(?FDU) assisting a guy he used to refer to as "Metz" or "Metzy".  By then he was a fairly un-assuming guy and never even told me that he had taken a 2nd at the Mets when he was in college.  By the time I went off to NYU Ron had left town to go to chiropractic school, and I don't think we ever saw each other again.
 
I now remember what struck me so much about that article that was posted at NYU.  It was accompanied by a picture of three guys on the podium.  You were holding Ron up and he was crying.  It's really a classic picture, even more so because unless you know the "back" story you can only imagine what is going on in the wrestler's heads at the moment the shot was taken. I saw this picture once about 25 years ago and it still sticks in my head.  I was wondering if you could clarify:  I am assuming your coach was named Saunders.  He wasn't the one who spoke of gassing out.  Like I said above, I thought Ron was coached at FDU by a guy he used to refer to as "Metz".  It was either Ron's coach (whoever he might have been) or perhaps Ron himself that stated in the article that Ron had "gassed out".  I also remember now that there was some suggestion that he had come down with a flu, which might explain his reaching a state of exhaustion by the end of the match.  Or perhaps you just kicked his ass in in the last 2 periods.
 
Speaking of Stu Pruzanski,  I never met him , but I knew his brother Dave a bit.  Dave owned a gym in the early '80's and our Judo club used to work out there for a while.  This was another guy who never really told you much about himself.  I only found out years later that he once wrestled Gable to a tie.  He was also the only guy to ever win US National championships in Judo, wrestling, and Sombo, all in the same year.  (?1972).  Years later, maybe 1985 or so, he decided to make a comeback in Judo.  He cut a shit load of weight and ended up fighting me in the finals of a small regional tournament.  I beat him by decision, but really got no satisfaction out of beating a guy who was so out of shape.  Can't remember if this was before or after one of his kids committed suicide.

Roger Saunders was my coach at NYU and clearly, a great one at that, who subsequently went to Bloomsburg where he was ultimately Athletic Director on last info. Bob Metz had quite a few winning teams at FDU, but he was not Saunders whose brother's wrestling success I alluded to so as to emphasize his wrestling prowess as no fluke. The last I heard of Dave Pruzansky he was diving out of a window of his house to evade police who had busted his drug-dealing operation. As a wrestler he was no joke and you did well to beat him and are too modest. I included reference to pruzansky because they developed a very curious, bizarre, and almost gang-like mentality within their "wrestling click". Upon information, many (if not all) of their clique "amped up" on amphetamines before their matches. Very close to their clique was the very weird and corrupt ref spike israel. The very quiffy spike israel had a "little buddy" jim fiore and had recruited David and his little buddy (among others) to Temple University to which he had some connection, and actually attempted to recruit me to same. I didn't take him seriously; firstly, because he told everyone he had been a state champ (bull s**t); secondly, because he had screwed me in a high school match wherein I had pinned leonard pruzanzky in the first period (I had him on his back almost the entire first period and israel gave me no back points, 2 or 3 for near fall, let alone the pin, and just the takedown and I lost by a point on riding time-leg ride). In an open tournament (I think Stroudsburg?), I was looking at the seedings/pairings/chart and David came up behind me pointed to my entry and said to the guy he was with that I had beaten his brother leonard. Roger required our team during one Christmas break to compete in my first and only free-style tournament. I was up two weight classes and David won quite handily. That was the third time I had beaten Ron and frankly, I did grind him into the mat and kick his ass for the late balance of the first period and the remainder of the match.

 

The following is a reply on facebook to someone who said I beat him in wrestle-off and

completes my wrestling story.

Good luck to you in all your endeavors.

Al Peia

Truly, thanks for all your info.  Interesting that you should mention Spike Israel.  I am assuming that the word "quiffy" is code for "gay".  Spike was coach at Tenafly High when I was in high school, and was known to "like boys".  Apparently he taught the Tenafly guys only one move, the Granby roll, which they were all quite good at, but very little else.  Besides Ron in the early '70's and Steve and Dave Yale in the later '70's Tenafly basically had no decent wrestlers during that period.  Not really sure if this was a coaching issue or recruiting issue.  Our high school (DMHS in Englewood) had former state champ Bob Hurley (Bergenfield) as our assistant coach and former state runner up Reggie Williams (Hackensack) as head coach, and we also fielded very few good wrestlers during those years.

Thank you for the second year in a row for the birthday wish, and though somewhat remiss in such things as this I'll make sure I don't miss yours. You may recall (just a few years ago) at Steve Marcus' Bar Mitzvah at B'Nai Birth (?) how I walked into the chapel sans yarmilke and shawl and got a few looks. Your Dad interupted his duties to attend to my 'lapse in protocol' and escorted me to a separate room and supplied with same. He seemed amused by it all which I thought was very cool; and, I thought to myself what an nice, intelligent, and balanced man he was.[ In today's environment, such as it is, I would probably have been accused of anti-semitism and taken out back and shot ... just kidding! (such an accusation would have been ridiculous then as now). ]

I hope we're referring to the same German teacher that taught at Fair Lawn High, in the classroom across from my social studies class with that prejudiced zionist hebrew bichler (My yearbooks were among the items stolen in jersey). He was husky, bald and had congratulated me subsequent to my upsetting defending Regional Champion harvey gold in the District Tournament Finals. He took out some of his competition photos including high-bar gymnastics which sport always amazed me inasmuch that was an inherited trait of ancient primates that never manifested in me, nor did I even think of trying. He also praised the sport of wrestling because you
use every muscle in your body, which is true. I like Russia (and what's not to like about Russian girls), but not when they were the Soviet Union and I was very happy when Latvia got it's independence which made me think of Eggi, and particularly Eggi's dad who was extremely intelligent, cultured, and talented. Wal took Russian, 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. I work out at LATTC's gym/workout center. It is unlikely that I will ever set foot in the state of jersey again since I have more well connected (mob, etc.) enemies there than I care to think of.

Elizabeth, Elizabeth, Elizabeth ... That about does it from me to you prospectively since I'm "developing a case of carpal tunnel syndrome from all this typing".

As for your jersey government complaints, I've found mob-infested jersey to be totally hopeless [ You might find this link interesting re: same http://www.albertpeia.com/ricosummarytoFBIunderpenaltyofperjury.pdf (I'm waiting
on the FBI whose position will determine mine) - plus, as pertains to the political scenario including the mob, sean hannity lives in jersey, so what can you expect. ] .I include the following which in the process of updating / completing my skills / knowledge base were part of exercises therein (also on my website):

I support the police 100% for good reason and previously wrote: CITY ON EDGE: Cash-Strapped

Newark, new jersey Forced To Lay Off 14% Of Police Force... [ From decades old (1978-1985)

direct personal experience with newark, n.j., the police are the absolute last cuts that can be afforded to be made. Indeed, while walking through Military Park (a sliver of a “park” - more a pedestrian thoroughfare/cement walks) in newark, new jersey on the way to the bank during lunch hour, I heard the clearly audible screams/cries of what turned out to be an old lady on the ground with blood streaming from her mouth. I ran toward the sound of the cries, the source of which I could not see because there were so many people in and about this thoroughfare so as to block any vision of the source of the cries. When I came to the woman, on the ground, blood streaming from her mouth, I asked what happened, to which she responded she had been hit in the mouth and knocked to the ground, her purse stolen/put inside her shopping bag, and she pointed out the criminal casually now walking across the main street. Nobody stopped to help her, many having passed her by. I slammed the thug to the ground so hard that, in light of all the blood and confusion (limbic system / adrenalin flow) I thought I had been stabbed (the blood was from his elbows hitting the pavement so hard - no one helped / a crowd gathered / an undercover cop happened along). When I testified at the Grand Jury Proceeding I made sure his threat on my life was set forth in prima facie fashion so as to maximize the DA’s position with both felonies ( he went to prison – pled out ). The other case I wrote about here ( This was included on my website in the Psychology forum discussion of ‘bystander effect’ / diffusion of responsibility. ) - Having had occasion to have run down a mugger in newark, n.j. who apparently had followed a girl from the bank on her way to the bursar to pay tuition, though in pretty good shape, I was astounded by how totally exhausting such a pursuit was, how much like rubber my arms were when I traded punches with the perpetrator, and truth be told, if I had a flashlight on my belt, I have little doubt that I would have probably used it to subdue the perp (a police officer here in California was the object of intense criticism for having used a flashlight to subdue a criminal after a long chase so I included that here) . The girl was not that seriously injured, did get her pocketbook and tuition back, and the criminal went to jail. The other thing about such a pursuit that amazed me was that no one else assisted the girl or me despite being in a position to do so). (Other newark / new jersey and new york, n.y. metro, viz., ie., connecticut, and of course, d.c., d.c. metro, viz., ie., virginia experience … corrupt federal judges as maryanne trump barry, sam alito, shiff, matz (california), hall, underhill, dorsey, etc.. Defacto bankrupt america’s so-called system is pervasively corrupt and broken (AP) Abolish the corrupt, costly, economically wasteful lifetime extravagantly appointed federal courts - see RICO case

The U.S.-Israel trust gap on Iran (Washington Post) [ ‘…We continue to believe that military action against Iran, by Israel or the United States, is not yet necessary or wise. U.S. and Israeli officials share an assessment that, though Iran is building up nuclear capability, it has not taken decisive steps toward building a bomb. In the meantime, the pressures on its leadership — from sanctions, sabotage, the disarray of allies such as Syria and domestic discontent — are growing. The best strategy for now is to fan those flames, which could cause the regime to retreat or even to fall. On that, we agree with the Obama administration…’. Wow! It surely is the drinking water in dc! ‘fan those flames’ says the editorial board; acts of war of themselves and prelude to the false flag op based upon israeli interest and their usual paranoia by projection of their own misdeeds, ill will, greed and malevolence in the region, including possession of illegal nukes and throwing their weight around in the region as if they do. The editorial board once again disappoints with a ‘not quite’ assessment of the realities regarding israel’s militant, intransigent presence in the region while looking askance with blinders at the real provocateurs in the region; viz., israel, america, and to a lesser extent to all their detriment, the west generally.

Milbank: With Hispanics, a GOP death wish (Washington Post) [ Wow! GOP death wish? A bit melodramatic on the part of Mr. Milbank. Coupled with yesterday’s long overdue criticism of wobama, one has to wonder whether it’s the dc drinking water that’s the culprit. Then again, could this be a rhetorical way of criticizing the GOP in favor of the Dems or a legitimate heads up so as to preclude the GOP from shooting themselves in the foot. I know not nor care not; the context is the key. Indeed, federal judiciary? Like most things american, the federal courts are rife with corruption. Since when should politics trump (includes corrupt judge maryanne trump barry, and shiff, matz, etc. ) judicial integrity and experience? Answer: since america beyond the propaganda is what inherently criminal, pervasively corrupt defacto is what america truly is and has been. Examples of federal judicial corruption already include the likes of sam alito among others, who though incompetent and corrupt and unequivocally deserving of jail time, sits now on the u.s. supreme court (  http://albertpeia.com/fbimartinezcongallard.htm  , and infra).

Clearly, a lack of will and conflicts, bribes / quid pro quo, even destruction of evidence, have plagued the SEC. Yet, their’s is only the province of civil remedies with at best criminal referrals to the DOJ for prosecution; good luck with that (remember all those prosecutions promised last election time by what is now the wobama / holder doj of the still extant high level wall street frauds in the trillions…never happened  - { Obama flush with financial sector cash The president has managed to raise more money this year from the sector than any GOP contender.

Energy Dept. failed to act as Solyndra sank (WP) [ This stuff is becoming all too typical. I believe it’s time to start questioning what federal employees get paid for. After all, pervasively corrupt america is defacto bankrupt (  America’s debt woe is worse than Greece’s News (CNN) — ‘Our government is utterly broke…The government’s total indebtedness is $211 trillion ) . Moreover, america’s pervasive corruption, even crimes,  has become synonomous with the machinations of any number of federal agencies / departments / all branches of government  (ie., DOJ – holder/fast and furious/race bias UPDATE: MORE CLAIMS OF RACE BIAS AT JUSTICE...ignore cases that involve black defendants and white victims , Fannie / Freddie Mac , SEC destroyed documents, senator says 17 Aug 2011 ‘The Securities and Exchange Commission destroyed documents and compromised enforcement case ...   Sen.Grassley  “It doesn’t make sense that an agency responsible for investigations would want to get rid of potential evidence…’ Report: SEC lawyer exposed FBI informant (WP) [the sec liar (sic – lawyer) typically with a ‘pre or post’ arrangement, whether implicit or explicit; that ubiquitous ‘bribe thing’ in pervasively corrupt, defacto bankrupt, fallen  america. Indeed, the scenario typifies that national drain / sinkhole new york (new york / new jersey metro) where, for example, FBI informants were routinely exposed by ‘italians’ in the new york d.a.’s office over the objection of the FBI, and were murdered by mafia / organized crime [ this was documented with authority in ‘Goombata: The Improbable Rise and Fall of John Gotti and His Gang’ Cummings / Volkman  ] SEC faulted over records shredding The SEC destroyed internal documents that should have been preserved as official federal records, the agency’s inspector general has found.

As Russia made the transition passing through that oligarchical stage as mentioned, america has devolved into an oligarchy for which there are no meaningfully enforced laws / rules and for which this parasitic, symbiotically venal interaction between elements of all branches of the u.s. government and the oligarchs (ie., wall street, etc.) has been destructive domestically (ie., the national drain of corruption on k street, huge frauds, etc.) and globally (the military industrial complex, wars, etc.). The story of america’s rather brief history, beyond the propaganda, is, in a nutshell, one of ‘taking without asking’, without regard to meaningful law, common decency, or morality. The taking includes lives, property, and most recently, liberty (as manifested in various nefarious, self-created problems for which they provide ‘the solution’; ie., encroachments on speech, etc.).

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

Actually, an outright ban would be a more cut and dry approach and desirable. Objections? Dont run for office if you dont 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, Im constrained to say from direct experience: You dont 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. Natural News February 1, 2012  [  http://albertpeia/americangovernmentdrugtrafficking.htm     http://albertpeia/americascorruptiondrugtrade.htm  http://www.albertpeia.com/112208opocoan/ricosummarytoFBIunderpenaltyofperjury.pdf       http://www.albertpeia.com/112208opocoan/PeiavCoanetals.htm    http://albertpeia.com/fbimartinezcongallard.htm   
http://albertpeia.com/stansberrycorruptiondeclineofamerica.htm ]  ‘The hypocrisy of the war on drugs is outrageous when compared to 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.

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.

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.’

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 …).

To the moon (C)Allis(ta) … well … she looks a little like Audrey Meadows; and, a little black hair dye, he a bit like Jackie Gleason.  Wow! The ‘Homey Mooners’! Yeah! I can see it now… snooty newty taunting the obamanoids: See what fruity newty got on his agenda, wobamanoids … a new state …the moon … top that, will ya … how could they? Nobody could! Breakpoint, advantage gingrich … Charlie Sheen governor … winning! …. (not really … but indeed, this could be newt’s manic phase in a bipolar, or lesser cyclothymic disorder … yet, one can’t exclude narcissistic personality disorder in light of such ‘grandiosity / grandiose plans’ … whew! You really can’t make this stuff up! What a mental case!  Newt Gingrich promises to build a moon colony by 2020; make it a U.S. state [ Wow! Absolute proof that the slimy newts not dealing with a full deck. Say anything? This takes the cake! The idea man? Sure, all he needs is Aladdins lamp and infinite capital! Oh yeah, reality nothwithstanding, nasa boondoggles sell well in Cape Canaveral, Florida (and Houston, Texas). Note, he couldnt just go to the moon for the first time (that fake video with the flag waving in the moons windy atmosphere yet another example as on fraudulent wall street of that pervasively addictive hopium) Americas debt woe is worse than Greeces News (CNN) Our government is utterly broke.

I’m still on the edge of my chair as to what sweet Nancy’s got on the slimy newt though her lips are sealed even as the daredevil newty says, bring it on, let’s hear what she’s got, which of course newty would already know yet might not register with him given his unconflicted, sociopathic, ‘revolutionary’ nature.

Scientists fear end of trips to Mars Theyre worried and angry as the White House wont commit to the plan to explore the red planet.

Astronauts' tracks, trash seen in new moon photos [ The easiest thing in the world to contrive (don’t forget they can with some precision today send robotics to ie., mars, etc.) and doctor so don’t be taken in by their fraudulent b***s***! They’re probably desperately looking for some money / budgetary consideration for their continued boondoggles. No man has ever set foot on the moon to date. As NASA transitions, U.S. space politics in a state of flux  (Washington Post) [ U.S. space politics? I didn’t know there was such a thing. But I, and I’m sure all know that ‘u.s. politics are spaced’. Flux? One could only hope. I’d say, ‘fleeced’; as in we’ve all been fleeced.  Sterner: 5 myths about NASA   (Washington Post) [ If you can’t get past the first myth; viz., that they actually set foot on the moon, the other 5 so-called myths become irrelevant. 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. He’s watched too much ‘24’ (while sampling his ‘talk radio’ among others, he’d talk of this show as if reality) ‘under the influence’ which has had the desired mainstream hypnotic effect on his bloated / clouded perspective. ]

 

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.

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’. ]

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’.

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:

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’.

"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! …’

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):

snooty newty and his shadow

Strolling down pennsylvania avenue
snarky 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. 

How will President George W. Bush personally make million$, if not billion$ from the War on Terror? The easy way.  He'll inherit it.

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

 

In N.H., Romney steps up attacks on Gingrich(Washington Post) [ Yeah … he’d better get going, ratchet up the rhetoric; after all, slimy newt’s just gotten the endorsement of ‘celebrity mobster madman’s (trump’s) apprentice’, ‘gary the b’ (for berserk) busey (most notable for his role in the film ‘Tomcats’ as the guy with only half a pair of b**ls!) (Drudgereport: Gary Busey Endorses Gingrich... ). Five myths about Ron Paul  (WP) [ For me, the litmus test for any candidate, though somewhat personalized, is generally applicable to the entire national electorate. It falls within that very broad category; viz., ‘been there, done that’. It is no mystery that the current wobama regime, et als are trying in every which way to censor, obstruct, and otherwise control the free-flow of information, particularly now the internet, which really works against failed administrations as that currently in place. By every measure you can gauge the success or failure of a presidency, wobama the b for b***s*** is an abject failure. There is not one reason based upon what he said he would do last time around, didn’t do, but as we now know had he done as he said the nation would have clearly been better off this day. He basically continued the policies of the prior failed presidency of war criminal dumbya bush, including the same or similarly connected players, despite having campaigned vociferously condemning same  (CIA lawyer says Obama administration backed and continued virtually all Bush-era programs Natural News ). Clinton was the luckiest of all recent presidents in having the benefit of the peace dividend to smooth things over, by way of the one and only but very significant accomplishment of Reagan / Gorbachev; yet, he found ways through deep-seated mental issues to fail, which we all endured as if watching a soap opera unfold. Incompetent george h.w. bush (‘poppy’) was basically the ‘cia in disguise’ which kept up the ops which included that snookering of then american proxy, sadam hussein, by u.s. ambassador april glaspie (see more here infra) (george h.w.bush was also ambassador to communist china and we all know how that’s turned out for america; but, ‘they’ and ‘theirs’ have made a bundle.. poppy and clinton were tied by ‘virtue’ of their cia / Mena, Arkansas cocaine drop / connection [ for me that connection was devastating to my RICO case which involved the laundering of drug money through the trump casinos in atlantic city,n.j., and poppy is after all, war criminal dumbya bush’s father ( see ie., http://www.albertpeia.com/112208opocoan/ricosummarytoFBIunderpenaltyofperjury.pdf       http://www.albertpeia.com/112208opocoan/PeiavCoanetals.htm     , and, america also leads in the illegal drug trade, infra ) . .. calls for impeachment ..‘fast and furious debacle’.  Despite campaign promises, there have been no high level prosecutions of the wall street frauds which are still extant in the trillions. That ‘8%’ unemployment; don’t completely dismiss same as they may just have enough of their stand-ins to work exactly 1 day to be counted;that’s at best... as they’ve done, manipulate/fudge/outright lie about the numbers (actual unemployment is beyond 15%). Gingrich actually carved out exceptions for fraudulent wall street to the applicability of the RICO Act to their frauds, among many other unscrupulous acts which will emerge; along with having sought the endorsement of mobster, mental case trump.. romney follows suit with a trip to kiss the ring of failed president poppy bush while cow-towing as all but Paul to the israeli lobby. So I, as should be so for the entire nation, say results count. (For me, it’s resolution of those corrupted RICO matters). Reality counts. What’s gone before has failed;new direction, policies are required. After all, Einstein did say, paraphrasing, ‘doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result’ is insanity. Ron Paul’s still standing!

 

America’s shine is wearing off I know why we are falling into a cataclysm of debt and can’t get out. (WP) [ Ah, yes. The Puritans. Of noble purpose, religious freedom, freedom generally did they come to these shores. A rare exception to the influx of immigrants to this young nation who turned out to be more a virus to the indigenous peoples of this land than what could have been expected from those of noble calling. Indeed, in evolutionary terms, it’s doubtful that those so positioned abroad would have represented a positive addition to the gene pool which, borrowing from an insurance term, viz., adverse selection, springs forth the notion of inevitability to the genocide of the indigenous populations while guaranteeing the decline we see throughout this foundering nation. The effects of these negative predispositions toward inherent criminality is certainly being felt globally as well as domestically and has little to recommend it. My own direct experience with the region(s) (particularly new jersey, new york, virginia, connecticut, california) carves out no exception for the prevalence of the worst of human nature; which is now collectively and pervasively americana.  Though having but 5% of the world’s population, the u.s. has 76% of the world’s serial killers,          http://www.albertpeia.com/realifeamericaserialkillers.mpg     bankrupt america also spends more on military than all the nations of the world combined... fed employees / contractors, cia, all 3 branches of u.s. gov’t, etc., are included in this evolved american trait of inherent criminality  http://www.albertpeia.com/112208opocoan/ricosummarytoFBIunderpenaltyofperjury.pdf       http://www.albertpeia.com/112208opocoan/PeiavCoanetals.htm        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 / the grim economic reality   [  http://albertpeia.com/grimreality.htm

Dear Congresswoman Roybal-Allard:

The following is my comment to an LA Times article regarding a Justice Department cover-up! As for your inquiry, all I think about day and night is a long overdue resolution to the RICO litigation as set forth therein:

ATF Chief Melson:Justice Department trying to shield officials (LATimes) Serrano

 

I believe him!


 I truly empathize with the ATF in terms of government cover-ups, notably by even the DOJ. You’ll recognize some familiar names (ie., Alito, Trump, Freeh (Louis Freeh now has dual citizenship with Italy), and some familiar crimes (ie., drug money laundering, etc. – real cash cow for gov’t ops, bribes, etc.). [Did you know this about the following ATF Agents who were probably viewed as loose ends: Steve Willis, Robert Williams, Todd McKeahan & Conway LeBleu:   Died February 28, 1993 by gunfire at Waco. All four were examined by a pathologist and died from identical wounds to the left temple. All four had been body guards for Bill Clinton, three while campaigning for President and when he was Governor of Arkansas.They also were the ONLY 4 BATF agents killed at Waco. ]

 

 

 

Heres some real, complicit cover-up / fraud on the part of the federal government, et als:

Dear Sir:

 

I enclose herewith 3 copies of the within DVD rom autorun disk (which will open in your computers browser) as per your offices request as made this day (the disk and contents have been scanned by Avast, McAfee, and Norton which Ive installed on my computer to prevent viral attacks / infection and are without threat). I also include 1 copy of the DVD as filed with the subject court as referenced therein (which files are also included on the aforesaid 3 disks in a separate folder named 112208opocoan). The (civil) RICO action (as youre aware, the RICO Act is a criminal statute which provides a civil remedy, including treble damages and attorney fees, as an incentive for private prosecution of said claims probably owing to the fact that the USDOJ seems somewhat overwhelmed and in need of such assistance given the seriousness and prevalence of said violations of law which have a corrupting influence on the process, and which corruption is pervasive). A grievance complaint against Coan was also filed concurrently with the subject action and held in abeyance pending resolution of the action which was illegally dismissed without any supporting law and in contravention of the Order of The Honorable Robert N. Chatigny, Chief Judge, USDC, District Connecticut. The files below the horizontal rule are the referenced documents as filed. (Owing to the damage to the financial interests of both the U.S. and the District of Congresswoman Roybal-Allard, viz., Los Angeles, the Qui Tam provisions of the Federal False Claims Act probably would apply and I would absent resolution seek to refer the within to a firm with expertise in that area of the law with which I am not familiar).

 

 

The document in 5 pages under penalty of perjury I was asked to forward to the FBI office in New Haven is probably the best and most concise summary of the case  RICO Summary to FBI Under Penalty of Perjury at Their Request (5 pages)      [  ricosummarytoFBIunderpenaltyofperjury.pdf   http://albertpeia.com/ricosummarytoFBIunderpenaltyofperjury.pdf          ].

 

 

The correspondence I received from the Congresswoman by way of email attachment (apparent but typical problem with my mail) along with my response thereto is included on the 3 disks as     fbicorrespondencereyes.htm     .   With regard to the calls to the FBIs LA and New Haven, CT offices: There was one call to the LA office and I was referred to the Long Beach, CA office where I personally met with FBI Agent Jeff Hayes to whom I gave probative evidentiary documents of the money laundering which he confirmed as indicative of same (he was transferred from said office within approximately a month of said meeting and his location was not disclosed to me upon inquiry). The matter was assigned to FBI Agent Ron Barndollar and we remained in touch for in excess of a decade until he abruptly retired (our last conversation prior to his retirement related to the case and parenthetically, Rudy Giuliani whose father I stated had been an enforcer for the mob to which he registered disbelief and requested I prove it, which I did he served 12 years in prison, aggravated assault/manslaughter? and no, there is no Chinese wall of separation Andrew Maloneys the one that prosecuted gotti).

 

 

In contradistinction to the statement in said correspondence, there is a plethora of information including evidence supporting the claims set forth in the    RICO VERIFIED COMPLAINT    (see infra). Such includes and as set forth in the case, inter alia,

 

 

 

 

There is applicable insurance / surety coverage and neither LA, nor creditors, nor I should continue to have been damaged by this brazened corrupt and illegal scenario, which should be resolved in accordance with the meaningful rules of law apposite thereto.

 

 

Sincerely,

Iraq

from the book

The CIAs Greatest Hits

by Mark Zepezauer

 

The Gulf War of early 1991 didn't change much. Our old buddy, the despotic Emir of Kuwait, is back on his throne. Our former buddy, Saddam Hussein, while knocked down a peg or two, is still in power and as brutal as ever. Hundreds of thousands of Iraqis are dead, hundreds of US veterans are suffering from a mysterious disease, and the Persian Gulf has been ravaged by the largest oil spill in history. The question naturally arises, could any of this have been avoided?

The whole dispute started because Kuwait was slant-drilling. Using equipment bought from National Security Council chief Brent Scowcroft's old company, Kuwait was pumping out some $14-billion worth of oil from underneath Iraqi territory. Even the territory they were drilling from had originally been Iraq's. Slant-drilling is enough to get you shot in Texas, and it's certainly enough to start a war in the Mideast.

Even so, this dispute could have been negotiated. But it's hard to avoid a war when what you're actually doing is trying to provoke a war.

The most famous example of that is the meeting between Saddam and the US Ambassador to Iraq, April Glaspie, five days before Iraq invaded Kuwait. As CIA satellite photos showed an Iraqi invasion force massing on the Kuwaiti border, Glaspie told Hussein that "the US takes no position" on Iraq's dispute with Kuwait.

A few days later, during last-minute negotiations, Kuwait's foreign minister said: "We are not going to respond to [Iraq]....If they don't like it, let them occupy our territory....We are going to bring in the Americans." The US reportedly encouraged Kuwait's attitude.

Pitting the two countries against each other was nothing new. Back in 1989, CIA Director William Webster advised Kuwait's security chief to "take advantage of the deteriorating economic situation in Iraq to put pressure on Iraq.'' At the same time, a CIA-linked think tank was advising Saddam to put pressure on the Kuwaitis.

A month earlier, the Bush administration issued a secret directive that called for greater economic cooperation with Iraq. This ultimately resulted in billions of dollars of illegal arms sales to Saddam.

The Gulf War further destabilized the region and made Kuwait more dependent on us. US oil companies can now exert more control over oil prices (and thus boost their profits). The US military got an excuse to build more bases in the region (which Saudi Arabia, for one, didn't want) and the war also helped justify the "need" to continue exorbitant levels of military spending. Finally, it sent a message to Third World leaders about what they could expect if they dared to step out of line.’

11-5-11

 

 

Dear Congresswoman Roybal-Allard:

The Keynesian (economic) approach, if ever a wise prescription for ‘economic doldrums’, euphemistically speaking (there are articles/studies/data that dispute the purported effectiveness of the widely hailed ‘Keynesian remedy’ during the prior great depression), the ‘Keynesian way’ is certainly no longer a prudent approach today in light of the insurmountable debt levels of nations worldwide and in america particularly along with the concomitant over-printed, debased ‘paper currencies’ to finance same. Quite simply, there simply is not enough real value being created for redistribution, a situation exacerbated by the parasitic lightening fast, computerized churn and earn high frequency trading programs on fraudulent wall street (they should be prosecuted, jailed, fined, and disgorgement imposed for extant frauds in the trillions now marked to anything as per misguided legislated FASB rule change). [ America’s debt woe is worse than Greece’s News (CNN) — ‘Our government is utterly broke …The government’s total indebtedness is $211 trillion’.  43,454,601,693,238 Reasons Why The World Is Broke – Presenting The Interactive Global Debt Clock  Zero Hedge October 17, 2011 http://www.economist.com/content/global_debt_clock ] .This is the consequence of a structural shift fed by greed and misguided policy and cannot be undone (transfer of productive capacity to ie., China, etc., ‘the bell cannot be unrung’). That said which militates against such an extension, this is an election year which probabilities suggest makes highly likely the passage of the extension. I favor your co-sponsored legislation and before the holidays simply in the name and spirit of Christmas and for no other reason whatsoever. Below is a recent comment to Opinion Writer Krauthammer’s ‘more war spending (Keynesian) position’ and an article regarding the folly of same. Immediately following is from my prior post to you concerning something of such manageable proportion and well within the government’s ability to resolve (if the government can’t accomplish this consistent with law and long overdue, then there isn’t anything the government can accomplish), along with other comments to you for ease of reference:

 

‘…As previously noted in a prior message to you, I had previously spoken to FBI Agent Bill Lewis in Washington who was recently promoted to the FBI Headquarters Office (D.C.) from the FBI office here in LA, and who was to be out of the office for the two weeks past. I’ll be contacting him given a reasonable time for him to ‘catch up’, from being out of the office. While independent contractor richard coan is ultimately the one to bear the burden of damages (there’s insurance and a surety covering same), coan might allude to the prior default of the u.s. government (assist. u.s. atty. robert i. lester miscounted / miscalculated the time for filing an answer / response to the complaint upon service thereof, also misstating the rule in open court before corrupt judge matz who ‘schmoozed’ things over (they both have the same employer), however incorrectly according to the ‘law’. I ordered / bought a copy of the transcript of that rather pathetic proceeding (posted in part on my website). In any event, regardless who pays me, the amounts so paid would ultimately be recovered from coan, his insurer/surety which amounts might even exceed the amount I’m willing to settle at. [There is also a judgment (referenced in the correspondence to FBI ADIC Martinez infra) that had been entered in my favor in the case, United States District Court Case #3:93cv02065(AWT)(USDCJ Alvin Thompson), worth approximately now in excess of $300,000 remains unaccounted for and which would benefit Los Angeles, etc.; and then, of course as well, the substantial damages. ] I’ve waited far too long for this matter to resolve, what should have been resolved in accordance with clear law long ago;  and, which would have been resolved if not for typical u.s. corruption in the process; and, which is well within the government’s ability to resolve. In my world and way of thinking, results do count! I’ve included prior correspondence for ease of reference…’

Nobel Prize-Winning Economist: War Is Widely Thought To Be Linked To Economic Good Times NONSENSE Washingtons Blog | Contrary to a Common Myth, War is Bad for the Economy Washingtons Blog
November 1, 2011

‘Contrary to a Common Myth, War is Bad for the Economy

Nobel prize winning economist Paul Krugman wrote yesterday:

Military spending does create jobs when the economy is depressed. Indeed, much of the evidence that Keynesian economics works comes from tracking the effects of past military buildups.

(Mr. Krugman has said the same thing many times in the past. And many other influential people havesaid the same thing.)

I am not a Nobel prize winning economist but Joseph Stiglitz is.

Stiglitz wrote in 2003:

War is widely thought to be linked to economic good times. The second world war is often said to have brought the world out of depression, and war has since enhanced its reputation as a spur to economic growth. Some even suggest that capitalism needs wars, that without them, recession would always lurk on the horizon.

Today, we know that this is nonsense. The 1990s boom showed that peace is economically far better than war. The Gulf war of 1991 demonstrated that wars can actually be bad for an economy.

Stiglitz has also said that this decades Iraq war has been very bad for the economy. See thisthis andthis.

A No-Brainer

This is a no-brainer, if you think about it.

Weve been in Afghanistan for almost twice as long as World War II. Weve been in Iraq for years longer than WWII. Weve been involved in 7 or 8 wars in the last decade. And yet still in a depression. (And see this).

If wars really helped the economy, dont you think things would have improved by now?

Indeed, the Iraq war alone could end up costing more than World War II. And given the other wars weve been involved in this decade, I believe that the total price tag for the so-called War on Terror will definitely support that of the Greatest War.

Additional Reasons War Is Bad for the Economy

The New Republic noted in 2009:

Conservative Harvard economist Robert Barro has argued that increased military spending during WWII actually depressed other parts of the economy.

Also from the right, Robert Higgs has done good work showing that military spendingwasnt the primary source of the recovery and that GDP growth during WWII has been greatly exaggerated.

And from the left, Larry Summers and Brad Delong argued back in 1988 that five-sixths of the decline in output relative to the trend that occurred during the Depression had been made up before 1942.

Economist James Galbraith has shown that war always causes inflation, which hurts the average American:

Inflation applies the law of the jungle to war finance. Prices and profits rise, wages and their purchasing power fall. Thugs, profiteers and the well connected get rich. Working people and the poor make out as they can. Savings erode, through the unseen mechanism of the inflation tax meaning that the government runs a big deficit in nominal terms, but a smaller one when inflation is factored in.

(Ben Bernanke says that inflation is a tax, and Dylan Grice notes that inflation causes societies to prosecute minorities.   And sorry but we cant inflate our way out of our debt trap.)

As I noted last year:

All of the spending on unnecessary wars adds up.

The U.S. is adding trillions to its debt burden to finance its multiple wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen, etc.

Two top American economists Carmen Reinhart and Kenneth Rogoff show that the more indebted a country is, with a government debt/GDP ratio of 0.9, and external debt/GDP of 0.6 being critical thresholds, the more GDP growth drops materially.

Specifically, Reinhart and Rogoff write:

The relationship between government debt and real GDP growth is weak for debt/GDP ratios below a threshold of 90 percent of GDP. Above 90 percent, median growth rates fall by one percent, and average growth falls considerably more. We find that the threshold for public debt is similar in advanced and emerging economies

Indeed, it should be obvious to anyone who looks at the issue that deficits do matter.

A PhD economist [Michel Chossudovsky] told me:

War always causes recession. Well, if it is a very short war, then it may stimulate the economy in the short-run. But if there is not a quick victory and it drags on, then wars always put the nation waging war into a recession and hurt its economy.

You know about Americas unemployment problem. You may have even heard that the U.S. may very well have suffered a permanent destruction of jobs.

But did you know that the defense employment sector is booming?

As I pointed out in August, public sector spending and mainly defense spending has accounted for virtually all of the new job creation in the past 10 years:

The U.S. has largely been financing job creation for ten years. Specifically, as the chief economist for BusinessWeek, Michael Mandel, points out, public spending has accounted for virtually all new job creation in the past 10 years:

Private sector job growth was almost non-existent over the past ten years. Take a look at this horrifying chart:

http://www.businessweek.com/the_thread/economicsunbound/archives/longjobs1.gif

Between May 1999 and May 2009, employment in the private sector sector only rose by 1.1%, by far the lowest 10-year increase in the post-depression period.

Its impossible to overstate how bad this is. Basically speaking, the private sector job machine has almost completely stalled over the past ten years. Take a look at this chart:

http://www.businessweek.com/the_thread/economicsunbound/archives/longjobs2.gif

Over the past 10 years, the private sector has generated roughly 1.1 million additional jobs, or about 100K per year. The public sector created about 2.4 million jobs.

But even that gives the private sector too much credit. Remember that the private sector includes health care, social assistance, and education, all areas which receive a lot of government support.

***

Most of the industries which had positive job growth over the past ten years were in the HealthEdGov sector. In fact, financial job growth was nearly nonexistent once we take out the health insurers.

Let me finish with a final chart.

http://www.businessweek.com/the_thread/economicsunbound/archives/longjobs4.gif

Without a decade of growing government support from rising health and education spending and soaring budget deficits, the labor market would have been flat on its back.

Indeed, Former Secretary of Labor Robert Reich lamented last year

Americas biggest and only major jobs program is the U.S. military.

Back to my essay:

Raw Story argues that the U.S. is building a largely military economy:

The use of the military-industrial complex as a quick, if dubious, way of jump-starting the economy is nothing new, but what is amazing is the divergence between the military economy and the civilian economy, as shown by this New York Times chart.

In the past nine years, non-industrial production in the US has declined by some 19 percent. It took about four years for manufacturing to return to levels seen before the 2001 recession and all those gains were wiped out in the current recession.

By contrast, military manufacturing is now 123 percent greater than it was in 2000 it has more than doubled while the rest of the manufacturing sector has been shrinking

Its important to note the trajectory the military economy is nearly three times as large, proportionally to the rest of the economy, as it was at the beginning of the Bush administration. And it is the only manufacturing sector showing any growth. Extrapolate that trend, and what do you get?

The change in leadership in Washington does not appear to be abating that trend[121]

So most of the job creation has been by the public sector. But because the job creation has been financed with loans from China and private banks, trillions in unnecessary interest charges have been incurred by the U.S.And this shows military versus non-military durable goods shipments:

http://marketoracle.co.uk/images/2010/Jan/us-collapse-18-11.gif

[Click here to view full image.]

So were running up our debt (which will eventually decrease economic growth), but the only jobs were creating are military and other public sector jobs.

PhD economist Dean Baker points out that Americas massive military spending on unnecessary and unpopular wars lowers economic growth and increasesunemployment:

Defense spending means that the government is pulling away resources from the uses determined by the market and instead using them to buy weapons and supplies and to pay for soldiers and other military personnel. In standard economic models, defense spending is a direct drain on the economy, reducing efficiency, slowing growth and costing jobs.

A few years ago, the Center for Economic and Policy Research commissioned Global Insight, one of the leading economic modeling firms, to project the impact of a sustained increase in defense spending equal to 1.0 percentage point of GDP. This was roughly equal to the cost of the Iraq War.

Global Insights model projected that after 20 years the economy would be about 0.6 percentage points smaller as a result of the additional defense spending. Slower growth would imply a loss of almost 700,000 jobs compared to a situation in which defense spending had not been increased. Construction and manufacturing were especially big job losers in the projections, losing 210,000 and 90,000 jobs, respectively.

The scenario we asked Global Insight [recognized as the most consistentlyaccurate forecasting company in the world] to model turned out to have vastly underestimated the increase in defense spending associated with current policy. In the most recent quarter, defense spending was equal to 5.6 percent of GDP. By comparison, before the September 11th attacks, the Congressional Budget Office projected that defense spending in 2009 would be equal to just 2.4 percent of GDP. Our post-September 11th build-up was equal to 3.2 percentage points of GDP compared to the pre-attack baseline. This means that the Global Insight projections of job loss are far too low

The projected job loss from this increase in defense spending would be close to 2 million. In other words, the standard economic models that project job loss from efforts to stem global warming also project that the increase in defense spending since 2000 will cost the economy close to 2 million jobs in the long run.

The Political Economy Research Institute at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst has also shown that non-military spending creates more jobs than military spending.

So were running up our debt which will eventually decrease economic growth and creating many fewer jobs than if we spent the money on non-military purposes.

As I wrote last year:

It is ironic that Americas huge military spending is what made us an empire but our huge military is what is bankrupting us thus destroying our status as an empire.

Even Admiral Mullen seems to agree:

The Pentagon needs to cut back on spending.

Were going to have to do that if its going to survive at all, Mullen said, and do it in a way that is predictable.

Indeed, Mullen said:

For industry and adequate defense funding to survive the two must work together. Otherwise, he added, this wave of debt will carry over from year to year, and eventually, the defense budget will be cut just to facilitate the debt.

Former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates agrees as well. As David Ignatius wrote in the Washington Post in May:

After a decade of war and financial crisis, America has run up debts that pose a national security problem, not just an economic one.

***

One of the strongest voices arguing for fiscal responsibility as a national security issue has been Defense Secretary Bob Gates. He gave a landmark speech in Kansas on May 8, invoking President Dwight Eisenhowers warnings about the dangers of an imbalanced military-industrial state.

Eisenhower was wary of seeing his beloved republic turn into a muscle-bound, garrison state militarily strong, but economically stagnant and strategically insolvent, Gates said. He warned that America was in a parlous fiscal condition and that the gusher of military spending that followed Sept. 11, 2001, must be capped. We cant have a strong military if we have a weak economy, Gates told reporters who covered the Kansas speech.

On Thursday the defense secretary reiterated his pitch that Congress must stop shoveling money at the military, telling Pentagon reporters: The defense budget process should no longer be characterized by business as usual within this building or outside of it.

While some might want to start another war, Americas top military leaders and economists say that would be a very bad idea.

Indeed, military strategists have known for 2,500 years that prolonged wars are disastrous.

Note 1: Security experts conservative hawks and liberal doves alike agree that waging war in the Middle East weakens national security and increases terrorism. See thisthisthisthisthisthis and this.

Terrorism in turn terrorism is bad for the economy.  Specifically, a study by Harvard and the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) points out:

From an economic standpoint, terrorism has been described to have four main effects (see, e.g., US Congress, Joint Economic Committee, 2002). First, the capital stock (human and physical) of a country is reduced as a result of terrorist attacks. Second, the terrorist threat induces higher levels of uncertainty. Third, terrorism promotes increases in counter-terrorism expenditures, drawing resources from productive sectors for use in security. Fourth, terrorism is known to affect negatively specific industries such as tourism.

The Harvard/NBER concludes:

In accordance with the predictions of the model, higher levels of terrorist risks are associated with lower levels of net foreign direct investment positions, even after controlling for other types of country risks. On average, a standard deviation increase in the terrorist risk is associated with a fall in the net foreign direct investment position of about 5 percent of GDP.

So the more unnecessary wars American launches and the more innocent civilians we kill, the less foreign investment in America, the more destruction to our capital stock, the higher the level of uncertainty, the more counter-terrorism expenditures and the less expenditures in more productive sectors, and the greater the hit to tourism and some other industries.

Moreover:

Terrorism has contributed to a decline in the global economy (for example, European Commission, 2001).

So military adventurism increases terrorism which hurts the world economy. And see this.

Note 2: True conservatives are anti-war.’

UPS is reliable and well managed and to see them takeover the usps would be a welcome development since the usps is unreliable and poorly managed as set forth previously, infra. I include previous responses for ease of reference. As previously noted in a prior message to you, I had previously spoken to FBI Agent Bill Lewis in Washington who was recently promoted to the FBI Headquarters Office (D.C.) from the FBI office here in LA, and who was to be out of the office for the two weeks past. I’ll be contacting him given a reasonable time for him to ‘catch up’, from being out of the office. While independent contractor richard coan is ultimately the one to bear the burden of damages (there’s insurance and a surety covering same), coan might allude to the prior default of the u.s. government (assist. u.s. atty. robert i. lester miscounted / miscalculated the time for filing an answer / response to the complaint upon service thereof, also misstating the rule in open court before corrupt judge matz who ‘schmoozed’ things over (they both have the same employer), however incorrectly according to the ‘law’. I ordered / bought a copy of the transcript of that rather pathetic proceeding (posted in part on my website). In any event, regardless who pays me, the amounts so paid would ultimately be recovered from coan, his insurer/surety which amounts might even exceed the amount I’m willing to settle at. [There is also a judgment (referenced in the correspondence to FBI ADIC Martinez infra) that had been entered in my favor in the case, United States District Court Case #3:93cv02065(AWT)(USDCJ Alvin Thompson), worth approximately now in excess of $300,000 remains unaccounted for and which would benefit Los Angeles, etc.; and then, of course as well, the substantial damages. ] I’ve waited far too long for this matter to resolve, what should have been resolved in accordance with clear law long ago;  and, which would have been resolved if not for typical u.s. corruption in the process; and, which is well within the government’s ability to resolve. In my world and way of thinking, results do count! I’ve included prior correspondence for ease of reference.

 

 

Thank You Again.

 

Sincerely,

 

Albert L. Peia

 

 

Post script: In pertinent part (correspondence to FBI ADIC Martinez )regarding two sets of disks waylaid by usps once with delivery confirmation priority mail, and the second priority certified mail: ‘ *The foregoing and as indicated therein was previously send 9-14-10 but delivery confirmation was flawed as set forth below and my inquiries to the u.s. postal service rebuffed (I believe tampered with inasmuch as your office could not locate same). This cover letter (9-13-10) is on the 3 disks with navigable hyperlinks to the subject files for ease of reference, including the files in the RICO action as indicated. (10-15-10) I spoke with Rose, FBI, ADIC Secretary, who indicates once again that your office has not received the aforesaid and which can reasonably be presumed to have been tampered with, and hence, a violation of the federal statute concerning same. (Ultimately delivered by UPS) ‘
