Try Dianne Feinstein For Treason
December 29, 2012 Filed under Gun Control Posted by James Smith
California Senator’s gun grabbing legislation causes outrage
December 28, 2012
The latest White House petition garnering attention demands that Senator
Dianne Feinstein be tried in federal court for treason against the constitution for her role in introducing legislation that would go a long way to repealing the second amendment.
The Constitution was written to restrain the government. No amendment is more important for this purpose than the 2nd amendment. The 2nd amendment was written so the power could be kept with the citizenry in the face of a tyrannical government. It was well understood the Constitution acknowledged certain rights that could not be limited by government.
Senator Dianne Feinstein has made it clear she does not believe in the Constitution or the inalienable rights of Americans to keep and bear arms. She is actively working to destroy the 2nd amendment with her 2013 assault weapons ban. For this reason we the people of the united States petition for her to be tried in Federal Court for treason to the Constitution.
As we have previously explained, although the White House asserts that it will respond to all petitions that reach 25,000 signatures within 30 days, the Obama administration has instead cherry picked which ones it addresses.
The petition to try Feinstein for treason currently has over 1700 signatures and is climbing rapidly. A separate petition calling for Feinstein, “to be immediately banned from the United States Senate and….prohibited from ever again holding public office in the United States of America,” also has over 1600 signatures.
Despite receiving over a million signatures in total, none of the secession petitions that flooded the White House.gov website last month have been addressed over 45 days later.
The petition calling on Feinstein to be tried for treason is a response to the California Senator’s announcement that she will introduce new legislation early next year that will criminalize millions of American gun owners if approved.
Feinstein’s bill will outlaw guns with magazines over 10 rounds, require a national fingerprint database of all gun owners and ban nearly all handguns.
As Mike Adams explains, “If Sen. Feinstein’s outrageous, unconstitutional and freedom-crushing proposal becomes law, it would require all gun owners to register the serial numbers of all their guns with the federal government. They would have to supply fingerprints, undergo a new round of background checks, and somehow get the “permission” of a local police chief or Sheriff who will vouch for them. This is Feinstein’s wicked way of essentially criminalizing ALL gun ownership by American citizens.”
Round 3 in Obama’s Game of all out Fiscal Charade!
Follow the facts and it all adds up whether you like it or not Obama is pure and simple about deception! You say it was a hobson’s choice vote Obama or get Fascist Romney and I say you should have looked closer their were choices the third party! It IS whats left of real American politicians the main partys are made up of the banker’s party and now the elections have consequences and the oligarcs now are after your social lifelines ..Are you going to let them ?
TRUTHOUT: Stop Obama’s ongoing Grand Charade to cut social insurances
Reposted from Margaret Flowers
Here we go again. President Obama is in round three of his ongoing efforts to cut our important social insurances, such as Social Security and Medicare. Whether he succeeds or not is up to us. We can create a stronger economy and healthier population by strengthening and expanding our social insurances and switching to a green energy economy.
In April, 2010, shortly after President Obama signed into law a health bill that further privatizes our health care system and while all attention was on this ‘historic achievement’, Obama created the National Commission for Fiscal Responsibility and Reform. He appointed Alan Simpson and Erskine Bowles as chairs of what was commonly known as the Deficit Commission and loaded the panel with 14 deficit hawks out of the total of 18 appointees. The commission was given the power to create a deficit plan that would go to Congress for an up or down vote.
If there was still any question about the intent of the commission, those should have been answered by the fact that the Peter G. Peterson Foundation was working closely with them, providing support staff and hosting the America Speaks gatherings in the summer of 2010. Billionaire Pete Peterson has spent decades arguing for cuts to social insurances.
I attended an America Speaks event in Detroit in June, 2010 and it felt very similar to the Health Care House Parties that the Obama campaign promoted in December, 2008. The event materials were designed to manufacture consensus on how much to cut our social insurances. But, the people weren’t fooled and when the question of how much to cut Medicare was raised, many people demanded Medicare for all as a choice.
I also testified before the Deficit Commission in late June, 2010, arguing that Medicare for all would solve both our health and financial crises. But the Commission wasn’t concerned with effective solutions, instead it was laying the groundwork for the Grand Charade that would lead Americans to believe we have a deficit crisis and accept austerity measures.
The commission was unable to get enough votes among its members by its December deadline for issuing a report, so there was no vote in Congress on their recommendations, but many of their ideas appeared in Paul Ryan’s “Path to Prosperity” in early 2011. Simpson and Bowles also issued their own report which is often mistakenly labeled the report of the commission.
In August, 2011, another committee was created and given the same power as the Deficit Committee. This group of 12 members of Congress, 6 from each body and 6 from each party, was known as the Super Committee. This small committee with extraordinary power was unprecedented and represented a serious usurpation of the democratic process.
The Super Committee held hearings during the fall and was required to issue recommendations by Thanksgiving. From the start, the committee stated that everything was on the table, including social insurances. While they went through the motions of public hearings, the agreements were already being made in secret negotiations and they included cuts to vital programs.
Like the Deficit Committee, the Super Committee failed to reach a consensus by the deadline. No doubt mobilized resistance to cuts to social programs made their task more difficult. The Occupy movement was in full swing, occupiers protested the Super Committee and some even walked to DC from NY, Philadelphia and Baltimore to protest. In Washington, DC, the occupation at Freedom Plaza held our own Super Committee Hearing. Our report, The 99%’s Deficit Proposal: How to create jobs, reduce the wealth divide and control spending, showed that there were real solutions to our crises that were better for the people and were supported by supermajorities of the population.
The so-called Fiscal Cliff is the current attempt to convince people that we will have to accept cuts to important programs. If enough people can be convinced that the sky is falling, then President Obama can make the cuts he has sought to make for years. No doubt giving Wall Street what it has wanted for a long time will be rewarded with high-paid speeches to big business when his presidency ends.
This is reminiscent of a similar campaign called “Health Care for America Now” that helped the President pass a Wall Street health care bill. Like Health Care for America Now, the public will be convinced through a strategic propaganda campaign to make demands from Congress that go against their own interests. But, we shouldn’t expect anything less from a president who won marketing campaign of the year in 2008.
So, the president has upped the ante in this ongoing Grand Charade. And unless we take action, cuts to our important programs will cause real suffering and more preventable deaths. There are solutions to all of the crises that we face. We must demand that human needs and protection of the planet be a higher priority than corporate profits.
For example, if we improved Medicare and expanded it to every person in the US, we could effectively control our health care costs which are growing faster than GDP.Former president Clinton acknowledged that the U. S. could save $1 trillion each year by adopting a single payer system like almost every other developed nation. We would also improve health outcomes and end bankruptcy due to medical illness and costs.
Just like with health care, if we put in place the right policy for retirement we solve the problem and help the economy. The Census Bureau reports that in the last decade there has been a 78% increase in Americans over 60 facing the threat of hunger and one in six seniors live in poverty. Doubling Social Security would bring seniors out of poverty and be a giant stimulus to the economy. It would also be a great relief to every family.
It’s time to end this Grand Charade. We mustn’t be fooled by this Wall Street agenda. As we’ve seen in Europe, austerity measures are harmful to people and the economy. For ideas on organizing resistance to these measures, see Solidarity against Austerity andVia 22.

AMERICA’S SHERIFFS FIGHT BARACK OBAMA AND THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT
Something extraordinary and historic took place mere days ago in Las Vegas, Nevada.
For three days, from January 29 and 31, 2012, in the Tuscany Hotel & Casino, more than 120 county sheriffs, from across the United States of America, met in a first annual, “Constitutional Sheriffs Convention”.
This is what Wikipedia says about U.S. sheriffs: “In the United States, a sheriff is a county official and is typically the top law enforcement officer of a county. Historically, the sheriff was also commander of the militia in that county. Distinctive to law enforcement in the United States, sheriffs are usually elected. The political election of a person to serve as a police leader is an almost uniquely American tradition.”
Special report: County Sheriffs Push Back Against Feds
The convention’s objective is two-fold:
1. To increase the understanding and awareness for all sheriffs and peace officers regarding the true power of our constitutional authority and duty to serve and protect the people for whom we work.
2. To unite in a concerted effort to uphold and defend the United States Constitution.
Given the importance of the convention, it is curious to say the least that the media have chosen to totally ignore it. Curious, too, is the fact that I scoured the Internet yesterday but could find scant news on the convention, much less a report – not even on the website of the County Sheriff Project.
But I did find an audio of a 1.5 hr Revolution Radio broadcast on the convention, an hour of which consists of phoned-in interviews with several sheriffs who attended the conference, as well as other attendees, mainly
Stewart Rhodes said the sheriffs “are working on a series of resolutions” at the convention, among which is a “Resolution of the Sheriff Against NDAA 2012″, drafted by Rhodes and constitutional attorney Richard Fry, for the sheriffs to sign.
NDAA is the notorious National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 which effectively nullifies the Bill of Rights by making it lawful for the U.S. President and the military to arrest and detain U.S. citizens without charge or trial. From the Oath Keepers’ website, it appears the sheriffs at the convention did not sign the Resolution as a collective body. Rhodes is asking the sheriffs to sign the Resolution as individual sheriffs.
Rhodes opined that political party labels don’t mean much anymore, referring in particular to how the NDAA is “a bipartisan assault on our civil liberties,” which was spearheaded by Republican John McCain and Democrat Carl Levin.
Rhodes emphasized that a second American Revolution has already taken place under our noses and our Constitution’s been overthrown. “We have had people who are determined to destroy our Constitutional Republic to create a tyranny.” But this revolution is not fully recognized by the American people, who must be informed and educated. He calls for Americans, especially the military and the police, to emulate the “peaceful revolution of 1800″ when Thomas Jefferson and James Madison rose up against the Anti-Sedition Act to sweep federal oath-breakers out of office.
Rhodes was followed by several sheriffs, who spoke one by one. They included: Sheriff Dean Wilson of Del Norte County in Northern California, Sheriff John Cooke of Weld County, Colorado, Sheriff John Lopeyfrom Northern California’s Siskiyou County and Sheriff Greg Hagwood of Plumas County in Northern California. An excellent video of these men explaining there problems with Federal agents and how they defeated them can be seen by going to http://www.YouTube.com and typing in: Constitutional sheriffs. And for a very good explanation of a Sheriff successfully opposing the Federal Government and protecting the citizens in his county, type in: Sheriff Tony DeMeo.
120 to 140 sheriffs from all across America. Many (“a great showing”) from California and the western states, but also from Texas, Florida and the eastern seaboard. Some sheriffs also brought their second-in-charge to the convention. A list of the names of the sheriffs who were at the convention will be published.
There was a Sheriffs Panel in which 8 sheriffs spoke.
There were presentations by various speakers who “spoke powerfully” on Agenda 21 and the Bill of Rights. Even though some of the sheriffs didn’t know about some of the issues, “they are listening” and “have a humility about them.” “They really want to know and are sticking their necks out by coming here.
What the sheriffs got out of the conference: 1. A renewed knowledge and understanding of the U.S. Constitution and “how it’s related to county sheriffs who are sworn to defend and protect the Constitution.
2. “A good idea and understanding of what’s been going on” in the sheriff’s own county and in other counties.
Sheriff Wilson’s county, as an example, is on the border between Northern California and Oregon. 74% of the county is federal and state land. The county’s agriculture and timber industry are under “attack” by the federal government’s Interior Department and BLM (Bureau of Land Management). Sheriff Cooke described how the federal government wanted to burn some grassland in his county which was adjacent to farmers’ and ranchers’ property. So he issued a warning to the feds not to burn, which was ignored. But the county stood firm – and the federal government backed down and decided not to burn. Sheriff Cooke also said that the federal government tells the sheriffs how to run their jails, although Washington D.C. has no authority over this.
3. The realization that many of the problems experienced by separate counties are common to all sheriffs across the nation, “all part of a larger picture.” Sheriff Cooke calls the conference “awesome”: “We sheriffs tend to live on an island, but the conference makes us realize we have common problems.” Those common problems are the federal government’s over-regulation; “overreach” of its authority on matters such as forest land in Northern California; and “infringement against the Constitutional rights of our citizens.” The sheriffs “heard absolute horror stories on what’s going on from one coast to the other – especially in Connecticut and Delaware.”
4. Not only are these problems common to the counties of all the states, these issues also “affect all the citizens of America.” “The problems we’re facing are universal.”
5. One of those issues that affect all the citizens is the NDAA. The sheriffs at the convention learned how the NDAA “blatantly strips authority from sheriffs into the hands of the military and the President” as well as stripping “the rights from citizens.”
6. Learning about the limits of the sheriffs’ own authority, even in “little things.” Sheriff Cooke gave an example of a Sheriff Akita who said he “did away with DUI checkpoints because they are unconstitutional” and sheriffs “shouldn’t tolerate it.” Why? Because “it is not right to stop people when they haven’t done anything wrong.”
What is needed: The sheriffs said an organization “like this” (i.e., the convention) is needed “on a national level” to help county sheriffs across America. “The time has come for a nationally recognized organization” of America’s county sheriffs.
In the meantime, there are already plans for Northern California’s sheriffs to meet again, scheduled for 2 p.m., Saturday, February 25, 2012. There are also plans for other events in Northern California to discuss land management, land use, water issues, the declining timber industry (U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service recently issued yet another spotted owl protection), and threats against mining, agriculture, and recreational use. California’s State Sheriffs Association has formed a policy committee to deal with common problems, especially those in Northern California.
What most impressed the sheriffs:
1. Sheriff Hagwood: It’s an “eye opener” that the same issues are being dealt with across the country. That’s “disturbing”. At the same time, it’s “good to know that distinguished sheriffs are taking steps to safeguard our Constitution.” They are willing “to stand up, stand tall, to serve the People and stand for the Constitution.
2. They now feel emboldened: Sheriff Wilson: “Just having an organization like this and meeting sheriffs from across America who are like-minded, emboldens you to take steps that are necessary to stand up for the rights promised in the Constitution, because now you know other sheriffs have his back” and will “stand beside me.”
3. Sheriff Cooke: “There’s strength in numbers, not fighting it alone.”
What the sheriffs promise: “The U.S. Constitution was founded by devout Christian men and they got it right. Now it’s up to us – sheriffs and peace officers – to keep it.” “The problems we’re facing are universal. But sheriffs bound together have real strength to push back.” “Sheriffs all over are going to fight back.”
The number of sheriffs who will attend next year’s convention will probably be double the number as this year. Sheriffs are learning “how to fight back with an organization like this.” “The only thing I’ve ever sworn to is my oath of office and my marriage vows. When sheriffs take a leadership role, the people will also be inspired. We realize that our freedoms are being threatened” on “county, state, and national” levels. We must energize and educate citizens and officials.” “Sheriffs are beginning to recognize the responsibility they have to citizens is much larger than upholding the law. We now appreciate the gravity of the situation. We recognize our larger responsibility is to protect the liberties [that are] absolutely essential to our way of life. The 2012 election is make or break. We must realize that the enemy is within, not without. We must demand that the federal government behave.”
“It won’t be easy but we’ll do it!”
That’s when my vision got blurred by the tears streaming down my face….God bless the county sheriffs who attended this convention. May their numbers multiply. Pray for our sheriffs! Pray for America!
Good Job: Chris Hedges on Obama’s NDAA: ‘The Final Battle’
Chris Hedges should get a patriots of the year award he is making a valiant effort in the fight against the Zionist take over of America. Do I really believe this “You Bet” just look at CSpan and watch the Stink that comes out of the Oratory of either PRO WAR or PRO Foreign affairs but NOTHING on fixing our Domestic Economy. I don’t want to live off Unemployment!!! I want you to create Worthwhile Projects that add Real Jobs. something like High speed trains as China now has. Imagine a train that would go from NY City to Los Angelos in 8 hours. China’s Finished that already!! I want Solar Panels on Every roof top and i want to Sell the power wholesale to the power company and get a CHECK. they can resale it to Industry and they win too. I WANT INDUSTRY!! Fu*K the Zionist Eugenics of Rochafeller and Monsanto IS POISONING YOU NOW! Almost 70 to 80% of everything at Safeway has Cornsyrup or a GMO Product. Better Think Local and FAST!!!
Over the past year I and other plaintiffs including Noam Chomsky and Daniel Ellsberg have pressed a lawsuit in the federal courts to nullify Section 1021(b)(2) of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).
This egregious section, which permits the government to use the military to detain U.S. citizens, strip them of due process and hold them indefinitely in military detention centers, could have been easily fixed by Congress. The Senate and House had the opportunity this month to include in the 2013 version of the NDAA an unequivocal statement that all U.S. citizens would be exempt from 1021(b)(2), leaving the section to apply only to foreigners. But restoring due process for citizens was something the Republicans and the Democrats, along with the White House, refused to do. The fate of some of our most basic and important rights—ones enshrined in the Bill of Rights as well as the Fourth and Fifth amendments of the Constitution—will be decided in the next few months in the courts. If the courts fail us, a gulag state will be cemented into place.
Sens. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., and Mike Lee, R-Utah, pushed through the Senate an amendment to the 2013 version of the NDAA. The amendment, although deeply flawed, at least made a symbolic attempt to restore the right to due process and trial by jury. A House-Senate conference committee led by Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., however, removed the amendment from the bill last week.
“I was saddened and disappointed that we could not take a step forward to ensure at the very least American citizens and legal residents could not be held in detention without charge or trial,” Feinstein said in a statement issued by her office. “To me that was a no-brainer.”
The House approved the $633 billion NDAA for 2013 in a 315-107 vote late Thursday night. It will now go before the Senate. Several opponents of the NDAA in the House, including Rep. Morgan Griffith, R-Va., cited Congress’ refusal to guarantee due process and trial by jury to all citizens as his reason for voting against the bill. He wrote in a statement after the vote that “American citizens may fear being arrested and indefinitely detained by the military without knowing what they have done wrong.”
The Feinstein-Lee amendment was woefully inadequate. It was probably proposed mainly for its public relations value, but nonetheless it resisted the concerted assault on our rights and sought to calm nervous voters objecting to the destruction of the rule of law. The amendment failed to emphatically state that citizens could never be placed in military custody. Rather, it said citizens could not be placed in indefinite military custody without “trial.” But this could have been a trial by military tribunals. Citizens, under the amendment, could have been barred from receiving due process in a civil court. Still, it was better than nothing. And now we have nothing.
“Congressional moves concerning the NDAA make it clear that Congress as a whole has no stomach for the protection of civil liberties,” said attorney Bruce Afran, who along with attorney Carl Mayer has brought the lawsuit against President Obama in which we are attempting to block Section 1021(b)(2).
The only hero so far in this story is U.S. District Judge Katherine B. Forrest of the Southern District Court of New York. Forrest in September accepted all of our challenges to the law. She issued a permanent injunction invalidating Section 1021(b)(2). Government lawyers asked Forrest for a “stay pending appeal”—meaning the law would go back into effect until the Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit issued a ruling in the case. She refused. The government then went directly to the Court of Appeals and asked it for a temporary stay while promising not to detain the plaintiffs or other U.S. citizens under the provision. The Court of Appeals, which will hear oral arguments in January, granted the government’s request for a temporary stay. The law went back into effect. If the Court of Appeals upholds Forrest’s ruling, the case will most likely be before the Supreme Court within weeks.
“President Obama should never have appealed this watershed civil rights ruling,” Mayer said. “But now that he has, the fight may well go all the way to the Supreme Court. At stake is whether America will slide more toward authoritarianism or whether the judicial branch of government will stem the decade-long erosion of our civil liberties. Since 9/11 Americans have been systematically stripped of their freedoms: Their phone calls are monitored under [George W.] Bush and Obama’s warrantless wiretapping program, they are videotaped relentlessly in public places, there are drones over American soil and the police control protesters and dissenters with paramilitary gear and tactics. As long as Obama and the leadership of both parties want the military to police our streets, we will fight. This is unacceptable, un-American and unconstitutional.”
How ugly are the Republicans? think Orcs vs. Goblins!! Fighting over a fake cliff.
I just watched an excellant video on economics by prof Steve Keen and his comparison of the fiscal cliff to an air conditioning system when the economy of the private sector gets cold then the government is suppose to step in with liquidity(dollars) and boost the economy but not this year the Rothschild bankers have got every country around the world on the same trajectory “Austerity for all” ring in liquidity and that means all economies will take a nose dive in Europe the plan was so they all come togethor and sign their sovereignty away for a central bank system much like the FED for Europe but in America I don’t know the plan but we do know the effect and it isn’t pretty means NO JOBS, No production, No Recovery and Congress is so willing to please it’s masters enough not to read bills just vote on what they are told! Like I said very Ugly and the Ugliest is the Austerity that they want to thrust on USA as Obama is so eager to join in and why not he is Wall Streets boy from the beginning. Hope an Change Suckers!!
The Orcs vs. Goblins:
As Crazed Republicans Turn on Each Other in Ugly Fiscal Cliff Battle
By Lynn Parramore, a senior editor at Alternet. Cross posted from Alternet
Fear gripped Middle Earth. The little people looked nervously toward the horizon, wondering if their few remaining possessions would be snatched away by marauding bands of goblins and orcs. For years the simple, honest folk had suffered as the twin forces of greed and hatred darkened the land. But this time, maybe there was hope; maybe the goblins and the orcs would turn their fury upon each other as they battled on the edge of a cliff over which both might fall….
And so things appear as Americans watch the fiscal cliff deadline draw near. There’s just a week to go for lawmakers to make a deal to avert automatic tax increases and spending cuts. Last week, negotiations broke down as Speaker Boehner failed to get enough votes to pass a bill that would have required the wealthy to pay a minuscule increase in taxes at a time when income inequality is crippling the nation’s future. With the House gridlocked, attention turns to the Senate, where some Republicans appear to be in favor of Obama’s call for a partial deal that insulates most Americans from the tax increases but defers a resolution on spending. A deal may yet pass, but it’s getting very ugly in the GOP.
Goblins v. Orcs
The Republican Party, particularly in the House of Representatives, is so blinded by greed and stupidity that factions are turning on each other.
One group, let’s call them the goblins, is just plain greedy, but not completely crazy. These are the folks who favored Mitt Romney for president and simply want to continue shovelling money toward the one percent as they have been doing very successfully for the past three decades. They are willing to make a deal because they know that any deal, particularly one that will shred the social safety net with cuts like those Obama has proposed to make to Social Security (the widely condemned chained CPI adjustment), will work out very nicely to their advantage. They are thrilled that instead of focusing on the jobs crisis, the country has been railroaded into premature deficit-reduction deals that serve as a cover for conservative wealth redistribution schemes. They also know that many Americans are catching on to their scam, and so they tend to rely on subterfuge and the appearance of moderation or “centrism” to get what they want, which is, in essence, more of your money.
Then there are the orcs. These are the lunatics who favored your Santorums, Gingrichs, Bachmanns, Herman Cains and so on — the assorted nuts in the GOP who are willing to fight ideological warfare with the battle cry “no taxes” and the battering rams of bad math and Ayn Rand-style social theory to send the land into total chaos. It’s not enough for them to cut Social Security at a time when the retirement of hard-working Americans has not been so vulnerable since before the Great Depression. These monstrous right-wingers would rather see every American’s taxes rise than increase taxes on a single millionaire by a nickel. The orcs have got the upper hand in the House and it is they who have blocked a deal on the fiscal cliff. They were last seen dancing around a bonfire made from Econ 101 textbooks and an effigy of John Boehner.
The Money Wizards
Part of the problem is that the goblins and the orcs are acting on behalf of different money wizards.
The orcs are associated with the Club for Growth, which has a large PAC; Americans for Prosperity and FreedomWorks; Heritage Action for America; and contributors to ex-Senator DeMint’s PAC. These orc-friendly elements want no deal, and their battle philosophy is summed up in Club for Growth spokesman Barney Keller’s recent comments: “We are pleased that the Republicans did not vote to raise taxes. We need to get real about our problems and stop playing political games.”
The orcs are for all-out war.
The goblins, on the other hand, dance to the tune of different money wizards. They are painfully aware, as Rep. Steve LaTourette (R., Ohio) explained, that failure to make a deal “weakens the entire Republican Party” and makes it appear to be a “bunch of extremists that can’t even get a majority of our own party to support policies we’re putting forward.” The goblins are close to the Business Roundtable, many of America’s largest corporations, and a fair number of Wall Streeters. Haley Barbour and Karl Rove are on the goblins’ side. Even Grover Norquist, the anti-tax man himself, seems to fear the price of a take-no-prisoners goblin/orc war; he recently signaled peace with the goblin faction in his endorsement of Boehner’s “Plan B.” It was all to no avail. The orcs are battle-crazed and eager to attack the goblins again.
As political scientist Thomas Ferguson succinctly put it: “Inside the GOP, all the little piggies go to market. Just not the same market. That’s the party’s problem.”
The spectacle of the Republican Party diminishing itself with nasty internal battles is certainly a welcome sight for the little people. But there are still plenty of ways they can get squashed. The goblin-backed theft of their retirement money appears to have the president’s support, a great victory for the Dark Side. Coming debt ceiling negotiations will offer goblins and orcs another chance to rob the honest folk and enrich themselves. But maybe, just maybe, the goblins and the orcs will exhaust themselves enough fighting each other that the little people can mount a counter-offensive. Hope springs eternal. At least in the movies.
What’s the best way the robber barons of finance ROB?! floating currencies!!
The Rothschilds have profited enormously from currency speculations
NEW WORLD ORDER wants a one world currency and everything else can go to hell!! they care little else for an islamic government or a democratic or a communist or fascist dictatorship they are above all the laws and all the governments because they control the money so to make the most money you have to have control of all the banks everywhere pretty simple stuff right. Well todays world has as many currencies as countries out there and the said values change all the time so now what do you do? Well if you were honest you would fix the currencies so sellers and buyers know what to expect but in a dishonest world where financiers live they make their money other than producing anything! Unfortunatly for the rest of the world this group also writes the rules hence we get floating rates so they can skim their hearts content. The mechanism set in place to do this is the topic of the next article and understanding the new world order is understanding the mechanisms of money ie SDR’s…
Central Banks Game Plan: One World Currency
Only those in total denial would claim that the world economies could grow their way out of the debt bubble. Mathematically, the rules of compound interest always destroy the purchasing value of fiat currencies. The era of zero interest rates will end. When the cost to finance debts reverts to normal levels, the bleeding will become a gusher. The world reserve currency status of Federal Reserve Notes will come under enormous pressure. As the central banks consolidate their control over international commerce and the economies of individual countries, the coin of the new realm will shift to a replacement for the U.S. Dollar.
There is no current replacement for the Dollar among existing world currencies. In order to substitute the role that the Dollar plays in trade a new measure of transactions would need to become acceptable to settle trade transactions. A mere substitution with some form of a basket of currencies or the inclusion of gold, does not resolve the enormous overhang of debt obligations needed to redeem all the Dollars that float around the world. The de facto use of Dollars within foreign borders to conduct business supersedes the local legal tender laws that many countries model after those imposed domestically on American citizens.
All this would change when the reserve status of the Dollar evaporates. The IMF created back in 1969 the SDR.
“The SDR is neither a currency, nor a claim on the IMF. Rather, it is a potential claim on the freely usable currencies of IMF members. Holders of SDRs can obtain these currencies in exchange for their SDRs in two ways: first, through the arrangement of voluntary exchanges between members; and second, by the IMF designating members with strong external positions to purchase SDRs from members with weak external positions. In addition to its role as a supplementary reserve asset, the SDR serves as the unit of account of the IMF and some other international organizations.”
As fiscal and political observers understand, the International Monetary Fund is a tool of central bankers, used to cast their will over sovereign nations. Monetary bondage is the core business of finance. In order to delay the ultimate day of reckoning, a shift in appearance will be offered as an alternative to the loss in Dollar confidence.
Alternatives: To mitigate exchange rate risks, the account could be structured to exchange SDR-denominated claims for foreign currencies with the same composition and proportions as the SDR basket, and retain a similarly-structured portfolio. However, this would essentially eliminate the currency diversification benefits to members, while not necessarily providing obvious benefits in terms of global diversification of reserve assets (unless the account were to invest in official SDRs—or SDR-denominated securities issued by others than the traditional reserve issuers; this however would expose the account to credit and liquidity risk that would need to be covered by members). Another alternative would involve having a willing subset of the Fund’s membership pool (part of) their official reserves into a Trust managed independently (within or outside the Fund), and agreeing among themselves on risk-sharing rules. This could achieve both reserve diversification and supply of a new kind of SDR-denominated security (issued by the Trust), and would therefore seem the most promising route if members with large enough reserves were interested in pursuing it.
IV. MITIGATING EXCHANGE RATE VOLATILITY
How? Use of the SDR as a unit of account could mitigate the impact of exchange rate volatility through: i) use of SDR to price international trade, report data on international transactions, and as an exchange rate peg; and ii) denomination of assets in SDR. The latter would require the development of a private market for SDR-denominated assets with impetus from the official sector and support to build the market infrastructure. The rest of this section discusses these issues. SDR valuation is clearly key to determine the optimality for any country or economic agent of the SDR basket as a hedge against exchange rate volatility. It is discussed in the next section. In all cases, an important distinction is between the denomination of certain transactions or securities and their settlement. Use of the SDR for denomination (what is at issue here) leaves full discretion to the parties to choose any currency for the actual settlement of their trade.
The stage-managed inventiveness of central banksters exceeded only by their lust to disseminate global indebtedness knows no bounds. Floating currency exchange rates, imposed on the world, causes the chaos and insider opportunities for reprehensible rigged gains.
“Establishing a single world currency doesn’t protect anyone; except, those who control the process of selective distribution. Equality in economic opportunity can never be achieved through the favoritism of Free Trade. The only thing FREE in the consolidating global economic system is the ride that the barons of manipulation enjoy. While they preach the virtues of wealth creation, they advance their own dominance over any remaining or persistent competitors.”
Some countries may resist the substitution of their own coinage for a new currency, but most governments are so indebted to the financial cabal, that the appearance or color of the paper that circulates as tender is not the real issue. The debt created monetary banking system has established their worldwide reach across the globe. The notion of China being outside the club of financier globalists and might challenge the push for a single money system, disregards reality.
The Single Global Currency Association has several reports that examine this issue in more depth. When the great world financial collapse intentionally triggered happens, the central bankers will unveil their end game currency swap. Understand they will never forgive existing obligations or absolve the debt burden that they decadently extracted from humanity. The enemy of mankind is not Adam Smith capitalism, but the Rothschild banking system.
