The Secret Bank of England

With the enactment of the privately owned central bank, the Bank of England provided the model for the financial enslavement of governments, and their citizens. Well before the conflict for establishing a National Bank in America or the eventual surrender to the money changers with the betrayal in instituting the Federal Reserve, the history of the Bank of England needs to be studied. Relying on British historians may seem to invoke a cultural bias; however, the range and wealth of information on this topic comes from an earlier age. Further research will expand this understanding and many of the sources cited can fulfill this objective.

For purposes of a mainstream account, the official site of the Bank of England provides a flowery version about the background and purported success of the scheme proposed by   “William Paterson, envisaged a loan of £1,200,000 to the Government, in return for which the subscribers would be incorporated as the “Governor and Company of the Bank of England”. Although the new bank would have risked its entire capital by lending it to the Government, the subscription proved popular and the money was raised in a few weeks. The Royal Charter was sealed on 27 July 1694, and the Bank started its role as the Government’s banker and debt-manager, which it continues today.”

“The bank hath benefit of interest on all moneys which it creates out of nothing.”

– William Paterson

THE FORMATION OF THE BANK OF ENGLAND by Halley Goodman provides a detailed and well sourced chronicle and background.

“The goldsmiths evolved to become the original private bankers of the time. Since  goldsmiths already had as part of their trade private stores of gold and stout vaults to store them in, entrepreneurs could entrust their own gold to them for safe keeping, for a fee, and receive a paper receipt for the deposit. The goldsmiths could then lend monies against these deposits for an additional fee. Mr. Hartley Winters declares that “some ingenious goldsmith conceived the epock-making notion of giving notes…and so founded modern banking.” Merchants would deposit “their money with the goldsmiths and received from them receipts” that “…were payable on demand, and were transferred from one holder to another in payment of debts.” These receipts or notes from the goldsmith bankers, often in the form of a letter, are some of the earliest surviving cheques in England. Given the economic realities of the time, although deposits provided the funds for their business, most of the clients of these goldsmith bankers were usually borrowers rather than depositors.”

From such humble origins, the foundation was laid to invent a central bank that would create money out of thin air and loan it at interest to the government, who lost it sovereignty for making this Faustian bargain.

Secrets of the Bank of England Revealed at Last!!

The Charter of the Bank of England (1694) with the Great Seal of William and Mary. The first usury central bank to be incorporated in England.

The Bank of England account, published by Cassell, Petter & Galpin cites a rocky start and opposition from the goldsmiths.

“In 1696 (very soon after its birth) the Bank experienced a crisis. There was a want of money in England. The clipped silver had been called in, and the new money was not ready. Even rich people were living on credit, and issued promissory notes. The stock of the Bank of England had gone rapidly down from 110 to 83. The goldsmiths, who detested the corporation that had broken in on their system of private banking, now tried to destroy the new company. They plotted, and on the same day they crowded to Grocers’ Hall, where the Bank was located from 1694 to 1734, and insisted on immediate payment—one goldsmith alone demanding £30,000. The directors paid all their honest creditors, but refused to cash the goldsmiths’ notes, and left them their remedy in Westminster Hall. The goldsmiths triumphed in scurrilous pasquinades entitled, “The Last Will and Testament,” “The Epitaph,” “The Inquest on the Bank of England.”

It did not take long for the Jewish bankers to set their sights on Paterson’s bank and financers for the English regime. Brother Nathanael Kapner adds his audacious viewpoints.

“The new King William III soon got England involved in costly wars against Catholic France which put England deep into debt. Here was the Jewish bankers’ chance to collect. So King William, under orders from the Elders of Zion in Amsterdam, persuaded the British Treasury to borrow 1.25 million pounds sterling from the Jewish bankers who had helped him to the throne.

Since the state’s debts had risen dramatically, the government had no choice but to accept. But there were conditions attached: The names of the lenders were to be kept secret and that they be granted a Charter to establish a Central Bank of England. Parliament accepted and the Jewish bankers sunk their tentacles into Great Britain.”

Actual control of the fiat central bank is discussed in Who owns the Bank of England?

“A very famous story relates to the Bank of England and the infamous Rothschilds, that all powerful banking family. This story was re-told recently in a BBC documentary about the creation of money and the Bank of England.

It revolves around the Battle of Waterloo in which Nathan Rothschild used his inside knowledge of the outcome and his faster horses and couriers to play the market by getting the result of the battle before anyone else knew the outcome.

He quickly sold his English bonds and gave all the traders who looked to him for guidance the impression that the French had won at Waterloo.

Retirement is Just a Dream

Retirement “Just a Dream” for Many

6 out of 10 believe they’ll never see a social security check

WASHINGTON, DC, May 8 – America’s workers are too busy looking for jobs to think much about the prospects of retiring. One of the longest, slowest and weakest post-recession recoveries has decimated the work force. Record numbers of people have stopped looking for jobs out of despair, skewing government unemployment reports. And, a recent Gallup poll reported that 60% of those currently in the workforce don’t believe they’ll ever receive Social Security when they come of age.

“It’s been a depressing, a tedious and worrisome so-called recovery over the past five years and we’re still not out of the woods. Individuals who once had good paying jobs are hard pressed to find employment that allows them to make ends meet, let alone put some money aside for the future. America lost nearly 9 million jobs during the Great Recession that lasted from 2007 to 2009. Statistically the country has regained the bulk of those jobs. But, for the most part, those who have gone back to work are making less money,” according to Dan Weber, president of the Association of Mature American Citizens.

Catherine Collinson, president of the Transamerica Center for Retirement Studies, which issued its annual retirement survey this week, pointed out that more than a third of the country’s workers expect they’ll have to continue working well past their hoped-for retirement age.

“The long-held view that retirement is a moment in time when people reach a certain age, immediately stop working, fully retire, and begin pursuing their dreams is more myth than reality,” she said. The survey showed that only 21% of the workers who were interviewed expect they’ll be able to “fully retire” when the time comes. The rest expect to work, full time or part time.

Weber said that many seniors have gone back to work because they can. They are living longer, healthier lives and enjoy the camaraderie of the workplace. But most of them need the jobs in order to get by.

“The net worth of all Americans declined sharply during recession and its aftermath. But seniors have been hardest hit. And, the proof is in the numerous surveys that show there are more post-retirement job seekers out there than ever before.”

But for many elderly Americans, finding work to supplement their incomes is not an option. Social Security is what puts food on their tables. “It’s their principal source of income, meager as it might be, and they would face cruel hardships if they their monthly checks were cut. For them, the fact that Social Security faces major fiscal challenges in the coming years is a scary prospect. That’s why it is one of the reasons AMAC has put its primary focus on the fate of Social Security in the association’s meetings with lawmakers in Congress,” Weber noted.

Millennials Faring the Best Financially

NEW YORK, April 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Millennials are feeling better about their finances than other age groups, according to Bankrate.com’s (NYSE: RATE) April 2015 Financial Security Index.

Job Security
32% of employed millennials (18-29 year-olds) report higher job security relative to a year ago and just 4% report lower job security. Overall, 23% of employed Americans are feeling better about their job security now versus April 2014.

Savings
30% of millennials say their savings are in better shape now than a year ago, twice as many as the 15% who are less comfortable. In total, 20% of Americans are feeling better about their savings (including a measly 13% of those age 50 and older).

Overall Financial Situation
33% of millennials report their overall financial situation is better than 12 months ago and 16% say it has deteriorated. As with savings, the 50 and older crowd is feeling much worse. Only 19% are reporting a better overall financial situation.

Net Worth
This is the only category in which millennials are lagging behind. The most positive sentiment was observed among 30-49 year-olds. 29% of them are reporting higher net worth than a year ago and only 18% of millennials can say that.

“While millennials are doing pretty well financially, their net worth is being held back because they aren’t as invested as older adults in the stock and housing markets,” said Greg McBride, CFA, Bankrate.com’s chief financial analyst.

The survey was conducted by Princeton Survey Research Associates International (PSRAI) and can be seen in its entirety here:

Aspirin Use on the Rise

More Americans are dosing themselves with baby aspirin than ever before, reports the Association of Mature American Citizens.  One report showed that in the five years between 2005 and 2010 aspirin use rose by 57%.  Another study revealed that more than half of individuals between the ages of 45 and 75 take a low-dose aspirin tablet each day.

“There’s no doubt that aspirin use can have value for people who have experienced a first heart attack, stroke or angina,” according to pharmacotherapy specialist Craig Williams.  He’s a professor at Oregon State University’s College of Pharmacy and the lead researcher of a study showing “that more and more people who have not experienced those events and are not technically considered at high risk by the FDA are also deciding to use aspirin, usually in consultation with their doctors.”

But, according to the FDA, there’s no support for “the use of aspirin as a preventive medication by people who have not had a heart attack, stroke or cardiovascular problems, a use that is called ‘primary prevention.’  In such people, the benefit has not been established but risks – such as dangerous bleeding into the brain or stomach – are still present.”

AMAC: the issue of executive power gets court’s attention

AMAC: the issue of executive power gets court’s attention

Liberal scholar chides the president for ‘burning the constitution’

WASHINGTON, DC, Apr 10 – President Obama’s “overreach” when it comes to his administration’s use of Executive Orders will come under scrutiny next week in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.

The case, State of West Virginia v the Environmental Protection Agency, is already causing quite a stir, according to Dan Weber, president of the Association of Mature American Citizens.

“Liberals are coming out in droves to disparage one of their own-fellow liberal Laurence H. Tribe, one of the nation’s top constitutional scholars.  Tribe also happens to a self-described proud professor at Harvard Law School, one of whose students was President Obama, himself.  In a brief he filed in the case, Tribe denounces the president’s use of executive power, likening it to “burning the Constitution.”

Professor Tribe once described President Obama as “one of the most amazing research assistants I’ve ever had.”  But, it appears that the president is no longer “teacher’s pet,” said Weber.

The left is up in arms, many of them calling Tribe a traitor.  But the professor, who is representing the nation’s largest coal producer, Peabody Energy, insists that he’s following his conscience in this matter.  “EPA is attempting an unconstitutional trifecta: usurping the prerogatives of the States, Congress and the Federal Courts all at once,” he said.

The case is about an Executive Order issued by the EPA, at the behest of the president, that would severely restrict the use of coal for power generation.  “If it is upheld, it’ll result in massive job losses, particularly among the nation’s coal miners.  It will also cause sharp increases in the cost of electricity, impacting vulnerable senior citizens who can ill afford it,” Weber said.

“Perhaps, more important is that the administration’s excessive use of Executive Orders is a testament to the president’s desire to become the nation’s lawmaker-in-chief,” he added.

“Here is one of Mr. Obama’s most prominent cheerleaders, Laurence Tribe, taking him to task for transgressions against the Constitution.  If it was enough to rouse the ire of adherents on the other side of the aisle, it is enough to galvanize those among us who believe in sanctity of the Constitutional.”

This is not the first time that a supporter of the president’s ambitions has ‘jumped ship’ when he overstepped his authority.  Another noted liberal, Jonathan Turley, a law professor at George Washington University, also came under fire when he chided the president, and his surrogates, for his reliance on Executive Orders to avert Congressional opposition.

As Turley put it: “What the Democrats are creating is something very, very dangerous. They’re creating a president who can go at it alone and to go at it alone is something that is a very danger that the framers sought to avoid in our constitution.”

There’s little doubt among the experts that the coal case will wind up on the Supreme Court’s calendar, Weber concluded.  “In the meantime, it is a reminder of the true legacy of this administration-a nation with an ever expanding, intrusive and progressive government establishment.”

Democrats Protect NC Pistol Purchase Permits that Allow Felons to Buy Guns

North Carolina democrats push to safe-guard county revenues while allowing felons to purchase guns from local gun stores.

North Carolina House Democrats are siding with the North Carolina Sheriff’s Association in an attempt to block NC HB937.

The bill was voted up by a 31-14 margin in the State Senate. The bill requires the elimination of the handgun purchase permits and instead requires gun store owners to do an FBI background check at the moment the handgun is purchased.

The North Carolina Sheriff’s Association has decided to oppose the measure. Public safety is obviously not their reason for action – it’s the revenues.

Each purchase permit requires a fee for the application and another set of fees for each permit. The county sheriff’s are not ready to let that money disappear just for the sake of gun safety.

Now, House Democrats have decided that the Sheriffs are right and should be allowed to continue collecting fees for permits when instant background checks at the time of purchase would much better protect against illegal gun purchases.

Democrats claim to be for responsible gun control, but in this battle seem to be favoring big government and politics over the safety of the people.

Once a person has obtained a purchase permit, they can put the certificates in a drawer, go commit one or more felonies, serve a year or four in jail, come out and use those permits to legally purchase a firearm. If the pistol permit system – a 90+ year old system intended for when gun stores could not do their own checks – was not in-place, NC gun stores would have to do an FBI background check at purchase. The same felon the Democrats are giving a gun to would be prevented from purchasing a firearm and flagged to local law enforcement for even trying.

The almost 100 year old system is only in-place to provide local sheriffs with revenue. It is NOT about protecting the people. In fact, it is more dangerous than no law at all. It makes a gun store owner an unknowing accomplice in the provision of a firearm to a felon.

The NRA has been fighting hard for HB 937, but in the house the Democrats are requiring concessions in order to please the NC Sheriff’s Association. This bill may fail without public pressure.

It is time to contact the NRA-ILA and our local representatives and tell them that the pistol purchase permit provision must stay in the bill because if it is removed, Democrats will have protected the rights of criminals to get guns.

If you don’t call your representative, join the NRA  and raise your voice.. you are allowing the Democrats to decide for you.

Parents and Children

Parents should be held responsible and accountable for how they raise their kids. Moms and Dads may decide to raise their kids in the ways that God wants to raise them in or parents can choose to raise their kids in the ways the world wants to raise them.

I encourage parents to choose to raise their kids in the ways that God wants to raise them in and not the ways the world wants to raise them in.

On my refrigerator there is a one-page poster (child-rearing anthem) that is titled Children Learn What They Live by Dorothy Nolte. Here is what it says below.

CHILDREN LEARN WHAT THEY LIVE

If a child lives with criticism, He learns to condemn.

If a child lives with hostility, He learns to fight.

If a child lives with ridicule, He learns to be shy.

If a child lives with shame, He learns to feel guilty.

If a child lives with tolerance, He learns to be patient.

If a child lives with encouragement, He learns confidence.

If a child lives with praise, He learns to appreciate.

If a child lives with fairness, He learns justice.

If a child lives with security, He learns to have faith.

If a child lives with approval, He learns to like himself.

If a child lives with acceptance and friendship, He learns to find love in the world.

Dorothy Law Nolte also wrote a book called Teenagers Learn What They Live. Here is a website that contains the chapter titles in the book. http://principal.ccsc.edu.hk/parents/teens/teenagers.html

Education

I believe that 51% should be the minimum requirement to pass a class and the state required test should there be one. I also believe that we need to have better pay for better teachers so that way our children do receive a better education. I also believe that we need to look at the length of the calendar schedule and how long students and teachers are in school.

I believe that the school year should begin the day after Labor Day and end on the Friday of Memorial Day weekend. I also believe that students and teachers should have the entire time from the week of Thanksgiving to the week after New Year’s Day off. I also believe that spring break should be held during Easter time (beginning from the weekend of Easter to the weekend after Easter).

I also believe the days that consist of the day after Labor Day, the Monday after New Year’s Day, and the day after Easter break should be delayed for 2 hours before the school opens. I also believe the days that consist of the Friday before Thanksgiving week, the Friday before Easter break, and the Friday of Memorial Day weekend should be early dismissal days.

CAIR’s Continued Whitewashing of Jihad and Attack of Free Speech

Via http://barenakedislam.wordpress.com

A recent report by FrontPageMag, reveals CAIR’s latest attempts to stifle opposition of Islam and hide attempts at Jihad in the United States. The Muslim Brotherhood front group continues to pressure federal and local officials, as well as law enforcement agencies, into removing any traces of radical Islam and it’s agenda for America from their literature and training manuals.

A recent article on CAIR’s website stated: “The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) announced today that 15 of its chapters nationwide have filed 87 separate public records requests about possible Islamophobic training of local, state and national law enforcement personnel. CAIR is seeking information about state-level trainings that may have used federal taxpayer dollars to fund anti-Muslim trainers, a phenomenon highlighted in recent research and media reports.”

Director of Communications for CAIR Los Angeles, Munira Syeda, recently defended the actions of of group of Muslims students associated with the radical Muslim Student Union. Apparently, unable to wait till the end for the Q & A session,  the students were found guilt of disrupting a speech which was being presented by Israeli Ambassador Michael Oren on US-Israeli relations. Repeatedly, the students were asked to stand down as they shouted numerous epitaphs and went as far as to ask  “How many Palestinians did you kill?” While the students and Syeda viewed this as an exercise in 1st Amendments rights, Judge Peter J. Wilson did not, and sentenced the students to 56 hours of community service and three years of informal probation.

Syeda also condemned a rally protesting Siraj Wahhaj (an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center attack) who was speaker at a Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) fundraiser held at a community center in Orange County, California last February. While the protestors were adamant in their cause, they did so peacefully and 50 yards away from the community center entrance. Councilwoman and Republican Party Vice Chair Deborah Pauly who also was upset with the pro-Jihadi guest list was quoted saying to the protestors “Let me tell you what’s going on over there right now – make no bones about it – that is pure, unadulterated evil. … I know quite a few Marines who would be very happy to help these terrorists to an early meeting in paradise.” Strong words, yes, but not illegal and was spoken outside without heckling the event.

It possibly could be ascertained that CAIR is a proponent of free speech, for CAIR, and just as long as is does not paint the wrong image of Islam and expose Jihad.

 

Anonymous Threatens Revenge Against the NYPD and Mayor Bloomberg

The group Anonymous has answered the call from Occupy Wall Street to act for their cause.

This is the YouTube description for this video:

It is time to regain our credibility and destroy the NYPD and one man…MAYOR MICHAEL BLOOMBERG.

They leave no question what the next steps will be for them. It will be interesting to see if Mayor Bloomberg takes this group of thugs seriously now that a threat is on his life, personally!  And they say these are harmless people! Puhlease!

Conservatives Should Stand Up in Face of Cain Scrutiny

So far in this Herman Cain saga, we have seen only one accuser give a specific account of what happened. Mr. Cain has denied the allegation, and there is no plausible way for him to prove a negative. On my view, the burden of proof now falls on Sharon Bialek, and a mere accusation just isn’t sufficient. Given the above, commentators claiming to be conservative need to show better restraint. Pursuing the facts in light of the allegations is one thing, but to call for Mr. Cain to drop out of the race to avoid being a distraction is asinine. This is the big leagues, the land where the ends justify the means for too many. We need to remember that when we hear accusations. Whether or not the accusations are true matters, but I’ve sensed that too many of us have assumed they are. This is very dangerous. It provides a template for the left that all they have to do is accuse someone they do not like on our side, say it loudly enough, and repeat it, then they can run against the Mitt Romneys of the Republican Party.

The tragedy of all of this is that this piece does not have a chance to debate the merits of Herman Cain the candidate. It is a piece about hearsay, meaning the accusers and the left have successfully distracted us from the issues most important in selecting a leader. Character certainly matters, but think of the resources that have been diverted from discussing the merits of smaller government, tax reform, and all of the other issues that have recently energized the conservative base.

The left is succeeding in censorship, and the Herman Cain circus is but a microcosm of its tactics. The race for 2012 is not going to be easy, but we have to have the stomach to be confrontational, and those willing to sacrifice Cain based on the utter weakness of what we know so far, I am afraid we do not have the will to win. Our future is in front of us, and the choices are as lucid as I can ever remember. One path leads us to a Tea Party type atmosphere. The other is Occupy Wall Street. We know which we prefer, but how badly do we want it?

Herman Cain Better Be Telling The Truth


Oh, Herman.  Why did you double down so forcibly?  I hope Cain’s innocent, really I do.  Tuesday’s press conference gave him little wiggle room.  Within the first 1 minute and 45 seconds, Herman Cain said that he saw Sharon Bialek for “the very first time”, that he “doesn’t even know who this woman is”, and that he “doesn’t recognize her name at all”.  By the 2 minute and 20 second mark, he had repeated that he didn’t know who Sharon Bialek is and that he didn’t recognize her name.

I hope that’s true.  We already know that he saw her in September of this year, but that might have been the only time he’s ever seen her, and he may honestly have forgotten about it.

But when you think back to Sharon Bialek’s original press conference, Sharon was very, very specific in her accusations.  Here’s some of the transcript from that press conference.

“I took the train into Washington, D.C. When I went to check into the room I was shocked to be taken to a palatial suite. I said to the bellman that there must be some mistake, but he insisted that there was no mistake. I later found out that Mr. Cain had arranged for the suite, though at the time I thought that maybe my boyfriend had tried to surprise me.

“I met Mr. Cain in the lobby of the bar at the Capitol Hilton at around 6:30 p.m. We had drinks at the hotel, and he asked how I liked my room, which is kind of normal, and I said I was very surprised. I said, I can’t believe it, I’ve got this great suite, it’s gorgeous. Mr. Cain kind of smirked, and then said, ‘I upgraded you.’

“He then took me to an Italian restaurant where we had dinner. During dinner, Mr. Cain looked at me and said, ‘Why are you here?’ I said, ‘Actually, Herman, my boyfriend, whom you met, suggested that I meet with you ‘cause he thought you could help me because I really need a job. I was wondering if there’s anything available at the state association level or perhaps if you could speak to someone at the foundation to try to get my job back, perhaps even in a different department.’ He said, ‘I’ll look into that.’

“While we were driving back to the hotel, he said that he would show me where the National Restaurant Association offices were. He parked the car down the block. I thought that we were going to go into the offices so he that could show me around. At that time I had on a black pleated skirt, a suit jacket and a blouse. He had on a suit with his shirt open. But instead of going into the offices, he suddenly reached over and he put his hand on my leg under my skirt and reached for my genitals. He also grabbed my head and brought it toward his crotch. I was very, very surprised and very shocked.

“I said: ‘What are you doing? You know I have a boyfriend. This isn’t what I came here for.’ Mr. Cain said, ‘You want a job, right?’

“I asked him to stop and he did. I asked him to take me back to my hotel which he did, right away.”

Here are some of the details just from that transcript:
She said that she stayed in the Capitol Hilton
He upgraded her room to a suite.
She met him in the lobby bar for drinks
They went to an Italian restaurant.
She had on a pleated skirt.

When you listen to her tell the tale in her press conference (that the transcript above is from), she really seems to be making specific accusations and “recalling” specific details.  When Herman Cain says that he doesn’t even know who Bialek is, he’s denying a LOT of things.  So, if even ONE of them is true, it casts a lot of his testimony into question.

If any one of the things Ms. Bialek claims is proven to be true, then Herman’s goose can be cooked.  (hotel records, credit card records, etc…)  I feel that Mr. Cain took a very big gamble by saying he had did not even know who Sharon Bialek is.  I think it would have been a safer bet for him to say he’s “not sure” if he’d ever seen her before, but by making such adamant claims, he’s really given himself little recourse in the event (or if) he’s ever proven to not be telling the truth.

Of course… if he IS telling the truth, then his gamble may likely pay off.

What do you guys think?  Did Herman take too big of a risk by saying so adamantly that he did not even know who Sharon Bialek is?  Should he have been more vague and just said that he “didn’t recall ever meeting her”?  Or, should he have “put his chips all in”, as it seems he has?  What would you do, if you were accused of wrong doing by someone on national TV, for that matter?  I’m not sure what I would do, if I was in that situation, myself.

As always, let us know what you think in the comments below.  I know a lot of you are tired of this conversation, but we’re trying to choose a leader of the free world, and part of the process is gauging how candidates do under pressure.  And right now, I’d say Herman Cain is under pressure.

 

Rick Perry’s Tax Plan: The Big Lie

 2012 GOP Presidential candidate Rick Perry unveiled a pro-growth tax plan yesterday that is based upon a flat tax of 20%. This plan contrasts with Herman Cain’s 9-9-9 plan in that is does not include a new sales tax. Big named conservatives are rallying around Governor Perry’s new tax plan, including Rush Limbaugh:

 “Rick Perry announced his tax plan today, which I’ll go on record as saying I, El Rushbo, think it is great. It’s fabulous. I like it. And the left is coming unhinged. We have just two examples. First from Debbie “Blabbermouth” Schultz, who was on MSNBC today, interviewed by the anchor Thomas Roberts, who said, “What is your reaction when you hear how Rick Perry is talking about President Obama and the fact that he says he’s only given big government schemes that have failed the American people?” And Shultz, ” My reaction to Rick Perry’s new-old plan is that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over ..blah blah blah.. how’s he going to pay for this?” To which Rush replies, ” Well, I just love this, because she’s talking about blowing a hole in the deficit, been there, done that, Ms. Schultz. You guys wrote the book on it. When it comes to paying for it, what in the world are you paying for? We are bankrupt because of your party, Ms. Schultz. What we are proposing here is solutions that will lead to economic growth, which will lead to more precious government revenues. In fact, the president of the Club for Growth, Chris Chocola, called Rick Perry’s new plan “massively pro-growth” in a statement today.”

Grover Norquist calls it a great step forward, and in a tweet said, “Perry’s flat tax has the classic lines of a Steve Jobs’ product. Seamless. ….and Steve Forbes likes it. I’ll take two.”

The Club for Growth’s Chris Chocola gave his nod of approval,  ” A Flat Tax like the one proposed by Perry would unleash years of economic growth if it is passed into law,” and then added, “Perry clearly understands that revitalizing the economy should start with a complete overhaul of a tax code that has nearly choked economic growth to death. Conservatives looking for a champion to carry the banner of a pro-growth tax reform will surely rally behind this bold proposal.”

The big lie about Governor Perry’s proposed “Cut Balance, and Growth”  tax plan;  “This plan will hurt the middle class of America while giving tax breaks to the rich.”

 Get used to that lie, because it will be repeated continuously from now until the GOP Presidential primary vote. Before the ink was even dry and Governor Perry’s tax plan was actually released, the DNC Chair was bashing it, as Rush explained yesterday in the above quotes.  Also of note is Mr. Chuck Marr of the far left propaganda outfit, Center on Budget and Policy Priorties, who stated, ” Flat tax proposals tend to be popular on a first blush basis but fall apart once people realize what the effects are,” he said. “There’s a superficial appeal, but when it comes out that middle-class people tend to lose big, it loses its popularity.” (emphasis mine)  And then we see the Obama administration setting the tone for the big lie with this:  In a campaign memo penned by policy director James Kvaal, “the most fortunate Americans would pay less while the middle class would pay a higher share.”

Governor Perry’s new tax reform plan is a bold step forward in addressing our nation’s problematic taxation policies that stifle economic growth in America. In his plan, concerning the “Middle Class” that Obama and the DNC will want you to believe is getting hurt by this plan, we see the following fact:  Perry’s plan also eliminates the death tax and taxes on social security payments, while maintaining deductions for mortgage interest, charitable giving and state and local taxes for families earning less than $500,000. It increases standard deductions to $12,500. It also gets rid of the long-tern capital gains tax.  Families earning under $500,000 will still be getting tax deductions across the board. Isn’t that the true middle class in America? How can that fact be misconstrued into meaning Governor Perry’s tax plan will be “hurting the middle class?”  More jobs created through Governor Perry’s pro-growth tax plan will mean more “middle class Americans” will be able to get back to work. When big government debt spending Liberals like Obama and Shultz try to say they are the champions of the working class, it must be considered to be very hypocritical when we see the fact that their policies of the past 5 years have led us into a historic period of stubbornly high unemployment. 20 million Americans are out of work or underemployed today. That fact speaks for itself.

 Beware of the big lie that Perry’s tax plan will hurt the middle class in America, as it will be heavily promoted by Obama, the DNC and possibly by Governor Perry’s opponents in the 2012 GOP Presidential primaries.

 

 

 

The "Great and the Good" Fall Further Out of Touch With Reality

   In a recent CNN article titled “Obama goes on the road to promote jobs,” we see the following statement:

Obama’s senior strategist David Axelrod vowed Sunday that every part of the bill will reach a vote.
“The American people support every single plank of that bill, and we’re going to vote on every single one of them,” Axelrod said on ABC’s This Week.

Just what “American people” could Axelrod be referring to there? Considering that his boss’, [ Barack Obama’s] approval ratings are still at historically low levels due in large part to Obama’s first failed Stimulus 1.0 package of 2009, just what American people supposedly support every single plank in his current Stimulus 2.0 plan? That statement shows the Obama administration to be completely out of touch with the American people today. This seemingly ignorant statement as to the reality of how Americans are very disgusted with Obama’s failed policies is not just being parroted by Obama’s administrative policy-puppets, but are also being parroted by the majority of the Liberal Democratic Party of today. DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman-Shultz chimed in with the out-of-touch-with-reality rhetoric about how the American people support Obama’s fake jobs plan, which was voted down in the U.S. Senate with Democratic opposition.

On CNN’s “State of the Union,” Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz said, “Polling shows overwhelming support for Congress to pass the entire bill. It’s absolutely critical.”

Just what “polling” is the DNC chief propagandist referring to there? Sure, if you poll 50 uninformed people, 3/4 of them Union teachers begging for more Democratic bailouts at taxpayer expense, I suppose you could see some support for the Union vote-buying scheme known as Obama stimulus 2.0.0. As far as mainstream working class people supporting Obama’s fake jobs bill, that statement is an outright lie. The simple fact of our current 9.1% unemployment rate proves that to be untrue, unless the American people today enjoy being out of work while the Great and Good of the DNC, like DWS enjoy $16.00 muffins, Platinum-plated health-care and enormous retirement packages after “serving” in congress for as little as two short years.

A recently disgraced member of the “Democratic Great and Good club”, Mr. Anthony Weiner  will be receiving a generous pension package even though he was ousted from Congress for basically being shown to be a sexting pervert and a total disgrace to the words “Honorable Congressman.” From allvoices.com:

Even after stepping down like this, Anthony Weiner will still get all the retirement benefits from the Congress. He will be eligible for a congressional pension of up to $46,244 each year. In addition to that Weiner will even be able to collect the balance of his Congressional Thrift Savings Plan, which currently stands at $216,011.

Another member of the Democratic Great and Good society, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid also parroted Obama’s lie about the American people supporting every plank of his Stimulus package 2.0.0, even though Reid voted no in the Senate vote on Obama’s jobs bill. Reid stuck to parroting Obama’s lie about Republicans not putting forth any bills to encourage job creation:

Speaking to a conference in Las Vegas on Sunday, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid urged the GOP to “get off of this kick of saying that the only thing that will create jobs is to lower taxes.”
“I say to my other friends on the other side of the aisle, if you don’t like what we’re trying to do, give us something that is constructive that we can do to create jobs,” said Reid, D-Nevada.

Senate Republicans gave Harry Reid this jobs bill, and the House also passed jobs bills here, that Reid ignored and refused to put up for a vote, and the Veterans jobs bill that Obama and Reid tried to claim as their own were all put forth by Republicans. So much for the lie that republicans have not proposed any jobs bills. Harry Reid also nuked the U.S Senate in an attempt to block the vote on the jobs bill.

In the ultimate example of just how far out of touch with reality the Great and the Good of Liberal-la-la land are today, even though Obama’s jobs bill went down in flames in the Senate, Obama is still harping at House Republicans to pass every part of it: (Talk to your Senate puppet Mr. Reid, Mr. President, instead of the petty partisan campaign ploy of blaming Republicans for your failed policies)

During the trip, “the president will challenge Congress to get to work this week passing every element of the American Jobs Act piece by piece,” Deputy Press Secretary Josh Earnest said.
The first part Obama will focus on is a proposal to prevent teacher layoffs, as well as saving jobs of police officers and firefighters, Earnest said.

Every single “job’ mentioned in the above statement just happens to be…. Union jobs. “Prevent teacher lay-offs?” I am unaware of not one single student who has arrived at school to be told there is no teacher available for class in any school in America this year. NONE.  As a matter of fact, the last stage puppet Obama used to show the people just who he “will put back to work” with his jobs bill….wasn’t even out of work at the time. The Great and the Good of the elitist Liberal Party want to “prevent” layoffs, “create or save” millions of jobs, and generally fool the American people into telling Congress to give them another half a trillion in dollars of debt to be strapped onto the backs of our children. All in order to fill Obama’s campaign coffers for his perpetual reelection campaign of 2012 by paying off big labor Unions. The reality of the situation says the American people are, in fact, wise to your fake jobs bill to pay off Unions and crony capitalists just like you did with the stolen stimulus bill cash, and DO NOT WANT ANOTHER FAKE  STIMULUS BILL.  2012 just can’t get here fast enough.

Is "Mormonism" Christian?

In the news lately has been another in a long string of non-issues raised by candidates for the Presidency of the United States of America. The senior pastor at the First Baptist Church of Dallas, Robert Jeffress, made disparaging comments about Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormons in the common vernacular). Then he added to his rhetoric about the LDS Church an indictment of Mitt Romney not being Christian…because he was Mormon. All of this was done in support of Governor Rick Perry‘s rapidly failing campaign.

Not unlike the Apostle Peter, Perry (sic) went out, and wept bitterly, (Luke 22:62) disclaiming the good pastor’s comment three separate times.

Well, I wanted to run a brief comparison between Jesus Christ and his “disciple Jeffress”.

Although prophesied in the Old Testament several time that Christ would come and redeem his people, not much is said about the reason it would happen. In hindsight we can see that the reasoning was pretty much for political purposes. A growing assemblage of people were turning to Christ and away from the ruling class that would “strain at a gnat and swallow a camel.”

One of Christ’s disciples, Judas, was among those that wanted Him to be a political leader and throw off the chains of the Roman empire. Judas joined the jealousy squad because it would further his ends…or so he thought, not unlike Pastor Jeffress.

They both failed to recognize what it really took to be a Christian. In the late of the night, a group of soldiers led by Judas ascended a mountain with the sole purpose of incarcerating Jesus Christ to bring Him to trial. Peter, who would later deny knowing Christ, drew his sword in defense of his Master. Now, note the response of Jesus Christ compared to the vitriol of Pastor Jeffress.

“And Jesus answered and said, Suffer ye thus far. And he touched his ear, and healed him.” (Luke 22:51)

We later learn that this confused follower of Christ went out and hung himself. Not only did he realize that what he had done was wrong, he also recognized that he had been duped by vain ambitions of politicians. He recognized that the good cause he thought he would help was in fact all for nothing.

It is interesting that when tried, Jesus Christ “uttered not a word.”  His only defense was being who he was. What is remarkable is that leaders of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints did likewise. “
