The Royal bailout Bluff – and the lemmings that Jump off it
I hate to rain on your fear parade but there is not going to be “martial Law”, and the USA is not going to be plunged into a dark abyss of poverty, and despair.
Nope. At the risk of loosing readers and listeners to DEADLINE LIVE… I am remaining cautiously pessimistic on the outcome of the latest “Financial 911″
How do I know this? Because George Bush says otherwise. Just about everything coming from the bully pulpit is a LIE! The threats are nothing more than empty threats. A Bluff. Not much different in scope to “the Terrorists hate us for our freedoms” or, “We are fighting them over there so we don’t have to fight them here” and, “If we don’t take out Saddam Hussein, the mushroom cloud will appear in 10 minutes”….
The borders, and ports have been wide open for the last seven years. Soft targets abound. Easy targets that would throw the US into “Chaos” if hit repeatedly. The malls, the stadiums, the concert halls, and metropolises… Yet no domestic terror? That hasn’t stopped the Republicrats from stripping us of our rights, and spending blood and treasure on foreign wars / counter-intelligence all these years. (all of which has incurred debt, ya know the debt that has caused financial chaos, and if the controllers get their way, “order” out of that very chaos.)
Of course we were told that if the Bailout (control and consolidation) Bill wasn’t signed Monday, all hell would be unleashed. That didn’t happen. Its Friday.
Not that we all shouldn’t be prepared for the worse, I am, but we shouldn’t panic. Nor should we be threatened into compliance.
National Martial Law is nearly impossible to enforce. Sure, with the help of Blackwater etc a city or town can enforce martial law, for awhile. But without full cooperation of the people, forget it. (See Iraq and Afghanistan for examples of how difficult total control over large populations can be. P2OG aside)
The Baseball playoffs will continue, the malls will still be selling slave goods, the stock market will vacillate a few hundred points here and there, big banks and private equity teams will gobble up, “Pac Man” smaller banks and investment firms, and the TV will continue to pump out 500 channels of “programming”. The utility companies will continue to bill you, and you can bet that your credit card payments will be due as always. The elite have too much to lose by pulling the plug now. So…
Life will go on as unusual. Whether we passed the “Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008″ or not.
With so many BOLD members of Congress holding out, minus the few that took deals and bribes, and with so many highly acclaimed economists warning Americans against this Bill, I can safely say that the USA would have made it through this uncertain time.
But I guess we will never know if the Bill was necessary, as it has just passed the house. The bluff wasn’t called, and the hook is firmly in mouths of Americans and their children. The 2008 US Financial coup is nearly complete.
Just like we will never know if Saddam was planning to attack the US (OK we KNOW that was BS)
The Lemmings and traitors of the Republic caved, and we can be sure of at least one thing: This is just the beginning of more bailouts which already amount to about 1.9 Trillion dollars in 2008.
We can also assume that another wider war will be initiated, and we can pretty much count on another “terror” attack by Al CIA Duh… all of course to take your minds off the raping and pillaging of the USA by foreign bankers. And.. If the 2000 Ecuadorian IMF script holds true, we may see riots and a forfeiture of American natural resources. (Tune in to DEADLINE LIVE this Monday 10.6.08 to hear BBC Investigative reporter Greg Palast discuss this IMF script in detail)
Also, the much feared NAU (regional government similar to the EU) along with the dreaded “Amero” may now be on the fast track. If you do not want to capitulate to that, more threats about the falling dollar should do the trick.
Yes I understand that many Americans are suffering NOW. Believe me, I feel their pain, and logically My family may not be far behind. I get it. We are working 2 or 3 jobs now to cover what once could have been afforded with one job. People are going hungry, and losing their homes. I for one make about 70% less than I did in radio in the 1990’s. But this can all be attributed to an incremental road to slavery and the mountain of debt built on a house of cards. As always we ask, who benefits, and who pays.
“There is scarcely a King (or would be king) in a hundred who would not, if he could, follow the example of Pharaoh – Get first all of the people’s money, then all their lands, and make them and all their children slaves forever.”
– Thomas Jefferson
With the new bill passing full of pork, can we ask… If we are so broke, how can we afford all this bacon?
From USA Today:
For most, race cars have little to do with the $700 billion economic recovery plan lawmakers will consider Friday. But in Congress, they could make a difference.
That’s because Rep. Frank LoBiondo, R-N.J., who voted against the bailout, now must decide on a revised bill that carries a tax break for owners of motorsports complexes, a proposal he has supported in the past.
From income tax breaks that could affect millions of Americans to tax breaks for racetracks, the economic recovery bill scheduled for a vote Friday is loaded with provisions that may tempt House members who previously voted “no” to change their mind.
Tax breaks for fishermen harmed by the Exxon Valdez oil spill in 1989 are supported by Rep. Don Young, R-Alaska, who voted against the bailout. And subsidies now included for people who bike to work are backed by Rep. Earl Blumenauer, D-Ore., who also voted “no.”
Meanwhile, back at the ranch…. McCain struggles to explain why HE supported a bill so full of pork, while people stand in line for bread. Hypocrisy that will cost him the election. Again we ask, Incompetence or design?
And, as if all of this isn’t injury enough, what about this INSULT:
Report: Bailout bill included Hidden Carbon Tax Provisions!
Excerpt: If you look at page 180 of the 451-page monster bailout bill that easily passed the Senate yesterday (PDF here), you will see that it includes at Section 116 language about the tax treatment of “industrial source carbon dioxide.” It also provides, at Section 117, for a “carbon audit of the tax code.” What could a provision about the tax treatment of “industrial source carbon dioxide” and another provision about doing a “carbon audit” of the tax code possibly have to do with restoring confidence in Wall Street’s troubled credit markets? The answer: NOTHING. This appears to be an attempt by global warming fanatics to lay the foundation for an economy-killing carbon tax just like the “cap-and-tax” system that is now destroying European industry.
It appears that this “Bailout” Rescue and recovery Bill is a wet dream for the powers that be. The result is that we will not be plunged into 1929 and a greater depression… We have however just witnessed yet another roll back for Life, Liberty, and property. Damned if we do.
So relax America. Your used to debt and control so this pill shouldn’t be too hard to swallow.
