In Obama’s export push, clash of U.S. interests That collision has been evident in the U.S. airline industry, where policies that aided Boeing forced another American company, Delta, to lose business. Experts say the approach by Obama, who is visiting a Boeing plant today, forces him to pick winners and losers. ‘Service sector cannot and should not lead our economy’ (Washington Post) [ Ramping up the rhetoric; or rather, the b***s***, which is what wobama does best though his actions and inactions since last campaign mode belie his words. First, there isn’t enough real capital in the world to sustain america’s debt burden, and, the over-printed fiat paper weimar dollar currency will be ‘paid for’ by ‘all’. Second, even assuming, arguendo, the absence of the foregoing insurmountable burden / obstacle, there simply is not enough capital in the world to retransition what’s been decades in the making overseas with modern plants and equipment there, now here, much less being profitable to do so. Too little, too late for wobama the b for b***s*** whose actions have consistently belied his words, and who has literally further insurmountably bankrupted the nation with excessively costly and uneconomic window-dressed numbers. For example, taxpayers should get a share of the GM profits since they’re paying for them, ie., { to pad stats - Drudgereport: Obama Economists Admit: 'Stimulus' Cost $278,000 per Job...  }  and those unaffordably costly cars { to pad sales - Drudgereport (on Government Motors): REPORT: Chevy Volt Costing Taxpayers Up to $250K Per Vehicle...  CAVUTO: Volt sales inflated with taxpayer fleet buys...  }  Is the unemployment rate misleading? WONKBLOG | Some point out that it doesn’t count those who’ve given up looking for work. (Washington Post) [ Duh! Ya think? I don’t even buy their raw numbers; and, even if, arguendo, their raw numbers real, they are election year expedient at best for ‘reporting purposes’ and uneconomic, overcostly, and very, very temporary http://albertpeia.com/governmentfraudulentemploymentstats.htm  . White House was warned about Solyndra layoffs E-mails show Energy Dept. asked firm in October 2010 to delay news of layoffs until after midterm vote. (Washington Post) [ Those unaffordably costly jobs and those unaffordably costly military industrial complex welfare programs .  The ‘so-called improvement’? At what cost for election appearances only?  ***? Milbank: Obama’s budget games He avoided anything resembling a serious proposal. (Washington Post) [ I’m totally astounded! I really am! I even checked / refreshed to see if this was a print / display error! Praise the Lord! It’s true! Criticism of his much-loved wobama! Even pinched myself to see if I was dreaming.  Who woulda think it? Tough love? I’d say we’ll happily take any criticism of wobama by Mr. Milbank as welcomed and nothing short of a monumental breakthrough, whatever the reason. But indeed Mr. Milbank’s quite right and the context is surely typical wobama election-year b***s***! 

 

Obama looks to tame U.S. debt Spending plan would pump nearly $500 billion into new construction projects over the next decade. (Washington Post) [ Tame u.s. debt … Yes indeed, by more record level spending … Sounds like a plan! Well, you know the drill; it’s an election year and it takes money ( that’s not really there, and no, not to make money ) to if not get elected, to enable an argument that, though contraindicated, you should be elected. I think we’ve passed the ‘fool me twice, shame on me’ threshold.  Obama 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...

OPINION | The amount he’s actually responsible for adding to the deficit is difficult to calculate.   (Washington Post) [ Well, when you’re dealing with debased, over-printed fiat currency and insurmountable debt levels, the precise amount of debt added on his watch matters less than the fact that he’s increased america’s debt by an amount in excess of the total amounts of all the nations’ presidents since Eisenhower combined. (34 Shocking Facts About U.S. Debt That Should Set America On Fire With Anger  http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com    http://albertpeia.com/34shockingfactsaboutusdebt.htm   ‘We have all been lied to.  For decades, the leaders of both major political parties have promised us that they can fix our current system and that they can get our national debt under control.  As the 2012 election approaches, they are making all kinds of wild promises once again.  Well you know what?  It is all a giant sham.  The United States has gotten into so much debt that there will be no coming back from this.  The current system is irretrievably broken… Professor Laurence J. Kotlikoff, the U.S. is facing a "fiscal gap" of over 200 trillion dollars in the future.  The following is a brief excerpt from a recent article that he did for CNN...The government's total indebtedness -- its fiscal gap -- now stands at $211 trillion.. The fiscal gap is the difference, measured in present value, between all projected future spending obligations -- including our huge defense expenditures and massive entitlement programs, as well as making interest and principal payments on the official debt -- and all projected future taxes…#33 If you add up all forms of debt in the United States (government, business and consumer), it comes to more than 56 trillion dollars.  That is more than $683,000 per family…).

 

 

Tax policy for manufacturing jobs carrots or sticks? When it comes to U.S. manufacturing jobs, more Americans support the punishment than the enticement. (Washington Post) [ Oh yeah! That all sounds great, election year and all. But, not even on paper. You can’t unring the bell. Moreover, even if you could ‘unring the bell’, like retooling, there’s time and expense. Structurally, even if america wasn’t defacto bankrupt, who’d bear the costs of such incentives which would have to be so huge so as to be prohibitive (the wage cost disparity). In other words, any such policy would require as we’ve already seen government subsidies that are literally unsustainable and otherwise uneconomic in terms of generating profits / surplus.

As a reminder this is just the beginning: as we noted yesterday, according to the president's own budget total US debt is now expected to surpasses the greatest and final debt ceiling of $16.4 trillion just around September, and likely sooner with the addition of the $160 billion in additional debt needed to fund the extension of the Bush temporary yet perpetual tax cut through the end of 2012. So while we know that total debt to GDP is already over 100% and unlikely to ever decline back to double digits, thus putting into question the marginal utility of debt to generate further economic growth, another just as important question is what is the incremental utility of tax revenue relative to debt issuance, i.e., is America now issuing more debt than it is collecting from tax revenues: a step which would further cement its status as a banana debt republic. , ECB To Fund Eurozone Central Banks As PSI SweetenerA number of headlines from Bloomberg, via Die Welt, that the ECB will undergo a bond swap on their greek government bonds and the 'profit' will flow to governments. This is absolute delusion. The ECB claims EUR50bn nominal value of GGBs - so likely took a EUR20-30bn loss on this given the prices they bought at under the SMP and the current market price. We explained last week (must-read) the delusional nature of these profits (given the losses that occur once the new bonds break) and assume this is yet another attempt to make market participants believe they wil help with PSI. However, there is more to this in our humble opinion. Since the ECB says they will distribute profits (which we know are illusory) to governments - it is nothing but a covert attempt to funnel money (think printing) to local government central banks - and the illusory profits here are simply giving away free money. Perhaps the loud screaming over the pain associated with even an 'orderly' Greek default is enough that the ECB needs to placate them with some new freshly printed money? For now, the PSI remains in limbo for the hold-out blocking stake reasons we have discussed at length - if the ECB were to step into the market and buy/swap with hold-outs all of their UK-law bonds at Par (for huge gains to the hedgies) then perhaps we get a deal done - but this would be astounding and leave the rest of the European sovereign debt market disabled as investors pushed for the same deal and vigilantes drove Portugal and then Spain to this point...Is it perhaps cheaper for the Troika to fund the ECB's EUR30bn loss (and let Greece default) than pay the EUR130bn for them to stay?Two formal requests to Mr. Draghi - please show where the profit is booked on your balance sheet and also explain how a notional swap (no debt reduction) in any helps the Greeks? , The Farce-Hole Gets Deeper: Obama's "Robo-Settlement For Votes" Cost To Taxpayers: $40 BillionPlunging deeper into the farce-hole, the FT reports tonight that Obama's foreclosure settlement with the banks over their improper seizure of tax-paying US citizens' homes will in fact be subsidized by those very same US taxpayers. It is a hidden clause (that has not been made public yet) that allows the banks to count future loan modifications under the $30bn (taxpayer funded) HAMP initiative towards their $35bn agreement to restructure obligations under the new settlement. As the FT goes on to note, BofA will be able to use future mods made under HAMP towards the $7.6bn in borrower assistance it is committed to provide - which means, in a (as TARP inspector general Neil Barofsky describes) 'scandalous' turn of events the bank will receive payments for averting a borrower default and be reimbursed by the taxpayer for the principal write-down. We have much stronger words for how we are feeling about this but Barofsky sums it up calmly "It turns the notion that this is about justice and accountability on its head". Are the Big Five banks truly beyond the law? Credit Suisse The Sequel: "Probability Of The Largest Disorderly Default Loss In History On March 20 Has Increased" A week ago we presented an excerpt from Credit Suisse's most excellent piece "The Flaw" - merely the latest in one of the best overviews of the neverending Greek soap opera by William Porter. Yet every soap opera eventually ends. Although when it comes to Nielsen ratings, the denouement is usually a whimper. In the case of Greece, it will be anything but. Yet listening to the daily cacafony of din from Europe's leaders, who are likely more clueless than the average reader as to what is really going on, one may be left with the impression that there is a simple solution to the problem, and Greece may be "saved... in hours." It can't. In fact, as of today, Porter's s conclusion is: "we are left with a sense that the probability of delivering the largest default loss in history in a disorderly way on or before 20 March has increased relative to doing so in an orderly way."

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…’

How Wall Street takes advantage of very confused Ivy League graduates COLUMN | Despite schools efforts to guide graduates into other fields, why do many still choose finance? (Washington Post) [ Confused? I’d say so. Incompetent? At the highest levels, there’s a plethora of samplings to be taken; ie., helicopter ben b.s. shalom bernanke : http://albertpeia.com/30bunglebenbernankequotes.htm  , http://albertpeia.com/whathasthefeddone.htm  , obama http://albertpeia.com/obamadeceptionhighqualityversion.flv  , and the list goes on and on. But it’s not ‘finance’ that’s the culprit, per se. Rather, it’s the ‘go along to get along’ and as well, the resistance to owning up to messing up and being accountable that becomes problematic; and then comes the fraud friendly cover-ups which take on a life of their own. I’d say law is as bad and probably worse inasmuch as by oath, lawyers should know better … but they really don’t, and that’s so at the highest levels http://albertpeia.com/fbimartinezcongallard.htm   . Then, of course, there’s greed, which may motivate to initiate the fraud, but less often is the primary motivation for complicit cover-up. I invite attention to the great non-fiction book ‘Liar’s Poker’ by Michael Lewis from which one generally gleans the precarious mental state ( Train Reading: The Stock Market Is (Criminally) Insane The Wall Street Journal )   of those infamous wall street bunch who’ve literally gotten away with crimes of such magnitude that it is doubtful the nation will ever quite recover from same. Having said that, to be fair, having had the opportunity to complete my MBA Thesis in Finance, 1977 at NYU GBA (evenings – I was just set to begin law school, evenings) with an Ivy Leaguer and expert in the fields of Finance / Economics including beyond academia; among the most eloquent, gifted, intelligent, balanced and impressively civilized people I’ve ever had occasion to come in contact with, viz., the great Dr. Robert A. Kavesh, I’m constrained to say that this one exceptional instance of a man is sufficient to rebut Mr. Klein’s premise and at the least, more Harvard grads should be encouraged to enter the field of Finance / Economics.

Putin unleashes wave of anti-American sentiment ahead of March elections Can U.S.-Russian relations withstand damage from attacks that have gotten more aggressive? (Washington Post) [ One can hardly expect a great leader of a great nation as Russia (yes, it is President Putin) to roll over and bend over for a pervasively corrupt, defacto bankrupt, meaningfully lawless nation as america surely is. The question always boils down to the ultimate cost of better relations with the u.s.. For indigenous populations and foreign nations that have tested the waters of ‘better relations with america’, the outcomes have been fatal (Iraq, Libya, etc., to name a recent few). I personally am constrained to sound and be accused of being ‘anti-american’ (not really, but by their spin certainly) by standing for my rights in property and constitutionally and resisting the costly corruption by the lawless oligarchs presiding over america’s declining / falling destiny today. The vast majority of americans this day are being irrevocably screwed by the u.s. government which is for the sake of current obfuscation bankrupting all in futurity. The corruption is real in america, at the highest levels of all branches of the u.s. government, and I’ve seen this first hand.

Vladi­mir Putin: My vision for a better Russia (Washington Post) [ I certainly agree that Putin is a man of vision and a great leader of an historically great nation with a long, rich history. Moreover, as he astutely points out, candidates’ worthless promises have the hollow ring we see epitomized by the jive-talker wobama. 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.).

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.

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.

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.

And, until the congress says those things that are illegal for everyone else are illegal for congress, such illegal activity is not really illegal; for them only, that is. No one’s above the law? Not so in pervasively corrupt, defacto bankrupt america where a clearly illegal act is not illegal for them unless they themselves say it’s to be prospectively considered illegal for them. Ethics? Silly boys and girls, as in , ‘don’t be silly!’. Congressional earmarks sometimes used to fund projects near lawmakers' properties EXCLUSIVE | Thirty-three members of Congress have steered more than $300 million in earmarks and other spending provisions to dozens of public projects that are next to or within about two miles of the lawmakers own property, according to a Washington Post investigation. Earmarks alive and well, probe finds A study of defense bill identifies 115 proposals as earmarks, including 20 by GOP freshmen who campaigned against the pet projects.

 (Washington Post) [ Such things do wonders for property values; even the most ill-chosen properties. Lesson: If you dont know a damn thing about much of anything, ie., finance, real estate, business, etc., run for and be part of congress to make being stupid not matter. I think a more telling example of self-dealing are those steady raises and increased benefits packages that congress continued to vote for themselves despite what we all now know to be jobs so poorly done that the nation is now hopelessly and insumountably broke in every way that could possibly be imagined.

 

 

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

 

The Markets Since Their 2000 Highs: We're Not Bouncing Back  http://www.bullfax.com/?q=node-markets-their-2000-highs-were-not-bouncing-back  ...

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

 

 

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

 

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.com/americangovernmentdrugtrafficking.htm     http://albertpeia.com/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.’

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.

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.
