Federal spending once again dominated the debate in Washington last week, as House Republicans and Senate Democrats began work on their ten-year budget plans. Contrary to claims, neither party’s budget reduces spending. While the Republican plan increases spending a little less than the Democrat plan, it would still spend $5 trillion in 2023, an almost two trillion dollar increase over this year’s budget.
Of course, these projections of future budgets are meaningless, as a current Congress cannot bind a future one. Therefore, the projected spending for next year is the only part of the budget with any significance. So is there a great gulf between the two parties’ budgets for next year? No.
For fiscal year 2014, the Democrat budget proposes spending $3.7 trillion, while the “radical” Republican budget spends $3.5 trillion!
City attorney of San Bernardino Jim Penman had the audacity to tell the truth to the residents of bankrupt San Bernardino at a recent city council meeting. Taking stock of the fact that San Bernardino’s murder rate has jumped 50 percent over the last year, that the city has been cutting its police force by about 80 officers, and that there is no good news in sight,
Penman stated, “lock your doors and load your guns.” He stands by the statement today, explaining, “you should say what you mean and mean what you say.”Penman continued, “Let’s be honest, we don’t have enough police officers. We have too many criminals living in this city. We have had 45 murders this year…that’s far too high for a city of this size ….
I’m not advocating that people go out, who don’t have any training, and buy firearms. I certainly strongly caution anyone who has children at home not to have a loaded gun in the house.”
My understanding of the Cloward-Piven strategy is that in order to get everyone a guaranteed income and “end poverty”, you had to ‘overload” the US public welfaresystem and get as many people as possible on welfare, government handouts and the like.
Tax-Loving Conservatives by Gary North (“Conservatives Are the Enemy They love taxes, tariffs, and badge-and-gun coercion in general. “)
This may sound odd. Conservatives don’t love taxes. They want lower taxes. Right? They want lower taxes and smaller government.
I wish that were true. It isn’t.

•We don’t know exactly what is to come, but we can all join the very few dots from where we are now, to the collapse of the first major bank…
•With very limited room for government bailouts, we can very easily join the next dots from the first bank closure to the collapse of the whole European banking system, and then to the bankruptcy of the governments themselves.
•There are almost no brakes in the system to stop this, and almost no one realises the seriousness of the situation.
•The problem is not Government debt per se. The real problem is that the $70 trillion in G10 debt is the collateral for $700 trillion in derivatives…
The US Government continues actions that will result in its own demise. That might seem fitting, except that its failure will seriously harm the citizenry.Government decisions and actions have assured an economic collapse that will result in another depression. Federal debts and promises are too large to be honored, a conclusion based not on economics but on simple arithmetic.The government collapse will likely trigger the economic collapse, although the order could be reversed.
Arguably, we are already in a depression which has been disguised by juicing GDP via excessive government spending. This spending has been funded increased government debt in magnitudes never seen before. To put matters into perspective, by the end of President Obama’s first four years, he will have added more to the federal debt than all 43 Presidents who preceded him.
…..There’s No National Debt; there is, however, The National Fleece
During the second nano-second, I’d wipe the slate clean and, guess what? Presto! No National Debt, as in “Zero Point Zero-zero.” This is how it works: the Fed charged us interest on our money, and it wasn’t their money; it’s OUR money, which used to represented wealth but today represents nothing but hot air, an empty promise.

Because my career was banking, I have written much about the attack on America’s independent banks by a federal regime that apparently seeks global governance.
And Dr. Edwin Vieira, Jr., Ph.D., J.D. posted:
The 2010 elections, which changed the balance of power in the House, were driven by popular opposition to government spending, debt and the threat of tax increases. Yet even with the federal debt limit already breached and only days left to prevent a national default, the media continue to ignore the public’s wishes.
The theme of network reports on the debt ceiling battle is that some agreement MUST be reached so that the limit can be increased, but many Americans disagree with raising the debt limit and are more concerned about government spending. But that has barely been mentioned in stories.
Polls taken by Gallup, CBS and AP have all registered significant worry about federal debt and opposition to an increase in the debt ceiling. But ABC, CBS and NBC coverage of the debt limit battle being waged on Capitol Hill has not reflected that fact.
The network’s willingness to ignore public opinion on the issue is shocking given the poll numbers

‘Stay and Fight’: Is This Realistic? by Simon Black
‘Stay and Fight’: Is This Realistic? by Simon Black:
“No fewer than ten NYPD storm troopers were ‘patrolling’ the sidewalk outside in full combat gear: Kevlar helmet, flak vest, semi-automatic 9mm sidearm, and Colt model 933 with M900 foregrip and M68 aimpoint.
And to what did we owe the deployment of such unnecessary firepower? An invasion of the Canadian hordes? Terrorists on the loose? No. Some visiting politician… clearly an individual who feels important enough to merit an intimidating death squad in his vicinity.
“THE PATRIOTIC REVOLUTION…IS HAPPENING NOW”
by Maj. Gen. Paul E. Vallely (Ret.), ©2011
The American people are angry with its national leadership or lack thereof because of the many negatives that include an unemployment rate that is hovering around 9 percent, rising prices and the specter of inflation, over-reaching mandates, the national debt exceeding $14 trillion, increasing food, energy, commodity prices and, worst of all, Americans feel betrayed, lied to, and manipulated. By a large majority, we demand a tidal change, NOW. The people demand change that actually means something positive; change that returns America to her foundations and core values.

In 2006 the U.S. government‘s national debt topped $8 trillion, and a senator from Illinois named Barack Obama called it a “sign of leadership failure.” He voted against raising the debt ceiling.In 2011, by contrast, a U.S. president from Illinois named Barack Obama looks at a national debt that tops $14 trillion and does not see it as a sign of leadership failure.Instead he characterizes it as necessary to the nation’s economic health. He’s currently jawboning lawmakers to let the federal government make the national debt even bigger.Today the debt is nearly as big as the nation’s entire gross domestic product. If we took every penny produced by every business and individual in the nation for the entire year, we’d barely pay it off.The president and his minions warn there will be an economic calamity if the government does not have unfettered access to our future earnings.”If we hit the debt ceiling, that’s essentially defaulting on our obligations, which is totally unprecedented in American history,” warned the president’s chief economic advisor, Austan Goolsbee, as if the only alternatives were to raise the debt ceiling or default.There’s another alternative: Hold spending in check.Excerpt Read more at investors.com …

The American Dream 
Nov 2, 2010
A new television ad about the U.S. national debt produced by Citizens Against Government Waste has been deemed “too controversial” by major networks including ABC, A&E and The History Channel and will not be shown on those channels. The commercial is a homage to a 1986 ad that was entitled “The Deficit Trials” that was also banned by the major networks. Apparently telling the truth about the national debt is a little too “hot” for the major networks to handle. But perhaps it is time to tell the American people the truth. In 1986, the U.S. national debt was around 2 trillion dollars. Today, it is rapidly approaching 14 trillion dollars. The American Dream is being ripped apart right in front of our eyes, but apparently some of the major networks don’t want the American people to really understand what is going on.
The truth is that the ad does not even have anything in it that should be offensive. The commercial is set in the year 2030, and the main character is a Chinese professor that is seen lecturing his students on the fall of great empires. As images of the United States are shown on a screen behind him, the Chinese professor tells his students the following about the behavior of great empires: “They all make the same mistakes. Turning their backs on the principles that made them great. America tried to spend and tax itself out of a great recession. Enormous so-called “stimulus” spending, massive changes to health care, government takeover of private industries, and crushing debt.”
