Hillary’s Missing Millions

[Photo caption/credit: The American Medusa {Is she about to speak–or club somebody with the mic?} (courtesy Google Images)] Forbes magazine published an article entitled “The Mystery of Hillary’s Missing Millions”. (Intriguing title, no?  Sounds something like an old Hardy Boys mystery.) According to that Article, “Since Bill and Hillary Clinton left the White House in 2001, they have earned more than $230 million.” That’s about $15 million/year and over $1 million per month. Note that, although Bill and Hillary left the White House in A.D. 2001, they (that is to say, Hillary) didn’t leave politics. Hillary served as US Senator from … Continue reading Hillary’s Missing Millions

IMF Colonized Korea–Part II Evidence

[Photo caption/credit: South Korean Flag courtesy Google Images] I published Part I of this article (IMF Colonized Korea—Part 1 (the “Agreement”)) two weeks ago.  Here’s Part II–the “Evidence” supporting my contention that the IMF colonized South Korea in A.D. 1997.  This total article is a long, hard read.  It’s not for everyone.  But if you want to catch a glimpse of how the world’s central banks and economy really work, this article is worth your time. In A.D. 1997, like several of the other “Asian Tigers,” South Korea suddenly slid close to financial collapse.  To avert national bankruptcy, the IMF … Continue reading IMF Colonized Korea–Part II Evidence

Pension Blues

[Caption/Credit for above photo: Politician: Trust Me–I’ll Protect Your Pension (courtesy Google Images)] MarketWatch.com published “The Next Greece May be In the U.S.”.  According to that article, “When Chicago Public Schools announced on June 24 that it would borrow $1 billion to make a $600 million-plus pension payment due June 30 an eerie feeling spread across bond investors and taxpayers alike.” Get that?  The Chicago Public School system has undoubtedly already collected hundreds of millions of dollars (probably billions) from the teachers to fund the teacher pension plan.  The School system is therefore a debtor to those teachers.  And yet, that … Continue reading Pension Blues

Looting for Dollars

A Russian analyst named Dmitry Kalinichenko recently penned a brilliant article entitled “Grandmaster Putin’s Golden Trap”.  The original article was written in Russian and subsequently translated into English.  Some of the translation’s language is a little rough, but it all makes sense. Part of his article discussed the significance of a recent announcement by China: “China recently announced that it will cease to increase its gold and currency reserves denominated in US dollars. . . . [W]hen this statement translated from financial language, it reads: ‘China stops selling their goods for dollars.’ “The world’s media chose not to notice . . . . … Continue reading Looting for Dollars

Fed Fraud?

For most of my life, I’ve been led to believe that the Federal Reserve is a separate entity that operates independently of the Federal Government.  This “separation” allowed the Federal Reserve to operate “independently” of the Federal Government. Over the years, I came to doubt that Federal Reserve and Federal Government were truly separate and able to act independently of each other.  But it was not absolutely clear to me whether the Federal Reserve was, in fact, a dependent agency of the politicians running the Federal Government, or if the Federal Government was a dependent agency of the bankers running … Continue reading Fed Fraud?

Running up Debt before Bankruptcy?

In the late 1990s, I met a Chinese businessman here at Dallas who knew his business would soon go bankrupt.  He concealed that knowledge from his bank and other financial institutions. In anticipation of that bankruptcy, he applied to 10 different banks for credit cards.  Believing his business to be financially viable, the banks issued all 10 credit cards–each with a $25,000 limit.  He acquired a collective credit limit of $250,000. He exhausted his $250,000 credit card limit in the first month after he received the credit cards.  He bought TVs, lawnmowers, new clothes and signed up for vacations.  Then, … Continue reading Running up Debt before Bankruptcy?

That Spiteful, Arrogant, Cynical, Narcissistic Piece of Crap

The Washington Times published an article entitled “Obama vows to use executive action on immigration before new GOP Congress is sworn in”.  It wasn’t really news.  We’d all heard that Obama intended to unilaterally grant some sort of immunity to illegal aliens after the election.  But seeing the headline and reading the article simply infuriated me. We have some sonofabitch in the White House who is going to do what he knows the American people don’t want and what he has no constitutional authority to do.  He—the nation’s chief law enforcement officer—is going to openly, shamelessly, gleefully conspire with millions … Continue reading That Spiteful, Arrogant, Cynical, Narcissistic Piece of Crap

Borderless Wars

The video at the end of this article presents a Muslim perspective on what the US government calls the “War On Terror” but Muslims see as a “war on Islam”.  The video focuses on a Muslim in England who hacked a British soldier to death on the streets of London, simply because the soldier had presumably fought against Muslims in the Middle East.  The Muslim who killed the English soldier didn’t try to escape.  Instead, he justified his act as that of a Muslim soldier fighting in a war without borders whose battlefield not only included the Middle East, but also England. The video … Continue reading Borderless Wars

Work Ethic vs Pay Ethic

Yahoo! News reports in “Boehner says unemployed ‘don’t really want’ jobs. How bad a gaffe for GOP?,” that:  “The Republican Party’s top leader in Congress is catching flak for a comment that appears to call the jobless lazy – a comment that has rekindled an old challenge for the party:  appearing insensitive or uncaring toward Americans who are poor or in financial difficulty.”  Goodness know that politicians can’t “appear insensitive or uncaring”. Like Bill Clinton (a multimillionaire), all politicians must “feel the pain” of the less fortunate.  “House Speaker John Boehner was asked after a speech last week to comment … Continue reading Work Ethic vs Pay Ethic

No Corporate Emigration from Income Taxes

The Associated Press published “US cracks down on companies moving overseas”. In that article, they reported that,  “ The Obama administration cracked down Monday on certain overseas corporate mergers and acquisitions, aiming to curb American companies from shifting their ownership abroad to shirk paying U.S. taxes. “New regulations from the Treasury Department will make these co-called corporate inversions less lucrative by barring creative techniques that companies use to lower their tax bill. Additionally, the U.S. will make it harder for companies to move overseas in the first place by tightening the ownership requirements they must meet. “This action will significantly … Continue reading No Corporate Emigration from Income Taxes

Callin’ a Spade a Spade

On Sunday, September 28th, President Obama appeared on 60 Minutes. When asked why his administration had been so slow to act against the Middle East invader ISIS, President Obama explained that US intelligence had “underestimated” the strength of ISIS and “overestimated” the Iraqi military’s ability to resist the ISIS invasion. Obama implicitly blamed US intelligence for his slow reaction to ISIS. Almost instantly, the US “intelligence community” reacted. On Monday, September 29th, The Washington Times posted “U.S. intel disputes Obama claim on Islamic State”. According to that article,  “U.S. policy leaders, including President Obama, were repeatedly warned for more than … Continue reading Callin’ a Spade a Spade

Bail-ins for Banks Too Big to Fail

Stanley Fisher is the former governor of the Bank of Israel, former chief economist at the World Bank, and current Vice Chairman of the Federal Reserve . According to the Daily Paul, (“The U.S. Plans To Bail-In The Banks—Federal Reserve Vice Chairman”) Mr. Fisher recently declared:  “. . . the United States is preparing a proposal to require systemically important banks to issue bail-inable long-term debt that will enable insolvent banks to recapitalize themselves in resolution without calling on government funding–this cushion is known as a ‘gone concern’ buffer. “Mr. Fisher gave no details as to whom in the United … Continue reading Bail-ins for Banks Too Big to Fail
