……That’s you Ron, along with the other 434 clowns in this place called “The US House.”
As it stands I’d have respect for you if you were to call out Congress for its refusal to enforce the very mandate it passed in 1913. But then again, if Congress had done that there would have been no crisis and no bank failures either, since The FDIC has a law called “Prompt Corrective Action” which prevents losses to the deposit fund and underwater asset bases – if and only if it is enforced. It hasn’t been.
Now let’s talk just for a moment about a few other unenforced laws.
We wouldn’t have guns “walked” were the law enforced.
Nor would we have had a major US financial institution launder drug money (a felony) and get a slap on the wrist.
Nor would we have had a major drug company get caught twice breaking the same law (a felony both times), and while they were fined (instead of prosecuted) in both cases their head “went to the (NY) Fed” – literally.
Nor would we have had a housing bubble, as states tried to stop it and were sued by the Federal Government – while Congress did nothing about it.
Nor would we have had an Internet bubble, as I and many others warned that the accounting statements and quarterly reports being issued were utter works of fiction.
Nor would we have all these banksters running around now, as Sarbanes-Oxley makes producing a false accounting statement a criminal act – yet nobody has been prosecuted in the collapse for doing so.
Nor would Tangelo have gotten off with a fine.
Nor would our banks have gotten away with filing 100,000 perjured (robosigned) affidavits.
And that’s just the start Ron.
Physician, heal thyself.

What are you doing to win others to our cause, so we can enjoy enough political victories next year to begin turning this country around?…
Don’t get me wrong; I know it’s going to take a lot more than one election to undo the consequences of 100 years of growing government and infringement on our liberties. There is no magic wand we can wave and no magic leader we can elect who will suddenly undo all of the disastrous advances the socialists and their allies have made in our lifetime.
No, we’re going to win back our liberties and restore solvency to our government the same way we lost them: step by step, law by law, election by election.
It’s going to be difficult. Almost half of adults in America don’t pay a penny in Federal income taxes. They are “net tax recipients,” as the more kindly like to phrase it. I prefer “hogs at the trough.”
And then, of course, there are all the liberal intellectuals, college professors, misguided idealists and pundits in the press who honestly believe government has a moral imperative to feed, clothe, house and educate everyone in need — with your money.
Don’t forget about the politicians who learned long ago that robbing Peter to pay Paul will always ensure them of Paul’s vote. Sadly, for the reasons I just enumerated, there are a lot more Pauls than there used to be; and there are a lot more politicians willing to pander to them, for the power and pelf they get as a result.
What are we going to do about it?

Earlier this week we sent some of the MRCTV staff up to Occupy Wall Street in New York to see what they could see. Now they’re back and, trust me, they’ve got some very interesting video. Our first taste of what they found comes in the form of this raging anti-semite OWS supporter.
Check out Joe Schoffstall’s interview with this raving lunatic.
This racist nut’s ramblings are just the beginning of what our guys found. Stay tuned for more…

L: So, who was the worst president?
Doug: That’s a really tough question to answer, because there are so many deserving candidates for that title. A short list would have to include McKinley, Teddy Roosevelt, Wilson, Hoover, FDR, Truman, Johnson, Baby Bush, and Obama. But I’d have to say Lincoln was by far the worst. He plunged the country into a totally unnecessary and immensely devastating war, and violated every important part of the Constitution. But he was such a great rhetorician that he made Americans feel good about all the horrors he brought about, setting a doubly bad precedent.
L: I think I know what you’ll say, but for our readers who are used to hearing Lincoln described as some sort of saint, and probably America’s greatest president, can you expand on that? He preserved the union and freed the slaves…
Doug: The union was not preserved. A union of free and sovereign states was cemented into a single super-state, in which each individual state became nothing more than an administrative region. Who’s to say that a bigger U.S. was a better one anyway? This Civil War was really the Second American Revolution. Anyway, it wasn’t a civil war, which is technically a contest for the control of a single government; it was a war of secession, like that of 1776. I’m no fan of the Confederacy, but the wrong side won, overthrowing the federal organization that restrained national power, maximizing political and economic freedom.
L: Not for the slaves…..
…Soon after the Civil War began, President Abraham Lincoln unconstitutionally suspended habeas corpus (later made constitutional by the acquiescence of Congress, which is authorized by the Constitution to suspend habeas corpus in times of war or rebellion). Lincoln also suspended freedom of the press, closing down some 300 newspapers in the North that had either expressed sympathy for Southern independence or had criticized Lincoln’s harsh suppression of the Bill of Rights.
In addition to Lincoln’s crimes against the Constitution, the war against secession also produced a cash crunch for the federal government, and it delayed gold payments to the Dakota Indians as part of a treaty to purchase 90 percent of the current state of Minnesota from the Dakotas. Facing starvation and bankruptcy from loss of both their lands and income, the Dakotas rebelled in 1862 and claimed their land back in a violent rampage. American military officials put down the justifiable Dakota rebellion and held sham military commission trials. The Dakota military commissions convicted 323 Dakota Indians, handing the death sentence to 303. The judicial process included the trial and sentencing of as many as 42 in a single day. Lincoln ordered a review of many of the sentences and, in the face of the massive and obvious injustice, demanded that no death penalty be carried out without his explicit approval.
Lincoln’s suspension of the freedom of the press did not prevent everyone in the North from speaking out against the war, so the President had General Ambrose Burnside issue General Order #38 on April 13, 1863, which ordered the trial by military commission of anyone who had the “habit of declaring sympathies for the enemy,” followed by death…..
