Broken Promises

According to Reuters (“Crimea Votes To Join Russia, Accelerating Ukraine Crisis”):

“The EU summit in Brussels seemed unlikely to adopt more than symbolic measures [against Russia] . . . .  The European Commission has announced an aid package of up to 11 billion euros ($15 billion) for Ukraine over the next couple of years provided it reaches a deal with the International Monetary Fund, entailing painful reforms like ending gas subsidies.”

 

The Russian’s will take Crimea by implied force and the West will take the western Ukraine by monetary subjugation. The eastern Ukraine’s fate remains to be discovered.  Either way, the former Ukraine will lose some or all of its former sovereignty.

The major powers of the world have allegedly promised to “help” the Ukraine, but no one will truly help the Ukrainians remain independent or sovereign.  Instead, the big predators will carve up the Ukraine like a dead water buffalo.

Barack Hussein Soebarkah?


Here’s a video that advances a conspiracy theory about President Obama’s “real” name and possible link to a Muslim cult.  The video offers allegations and inferences that are fascinating, intriguing, unsettling–and possibly based only on coincidence (albeit very strange coincidence).  This is the sort of story you’d expect to see featured in one of tabloids we see in the grocery store check-out lanes.

Responsible journalists shouldn’t write or publish stories like this one.  But they do.

Why?  Because President Obama has not yet provided evidence of his birth and early years.  If Obama provided such evidence, “conspiracy theories” of the sort seen in this video would disappear.

Show us a birth certificate, Barry, that isn’t forged and we’ll believe you and all of these conspiracy theories will disappear.   But until you produce a real birth certificate, the conspiracy theories will proliferate.

Point?  The reason for conspiracy theories about President Obama’s birth is because Obama won’t tell us the truth.  Thus, Obama, himself, is not the victim of conspiracy theories about his birth–he is the cause.

Obama: “If you misrepresent what’s in ObamaCare, we will call you out!”


Back in A.D. 2009, President Obama addressed Congress to advocate passage of the Affordable Care Act (“ObamaCare”).  During that speech, President Obama addressed some of the “key controversies” raised in opposition to ObamaCare.

Among those controversies were “bogus claims” that Obamacare would:

1. “set up panels of bureaucrats to kill off senior citizens.”

2.  “insure illegal immigrants.”

3.  “fund abortions.”

Obama looked Congress and the American people in the eye and dismissed each of those claims as lies.  Today, however, it appears that all of those claims were true.

During that speech, Congressman Joe Wilson (R-SC) shouted, “You lie!” at President Obama and caused a minor scandal. The moment immediately after Wilson shouted “You lie!” is seen in the video below.  Vice President Biden looks stern.  Nancy Pelosi looks shocked.  President Obama just smirks as if to say “So what?  Whatcha gonna do about it?”

President Obama dismissed the allegation that he lied as “untrue” and closed his speech with a warning that, “If you misrepresent what’s in this plan, we will call you out.

In other words, if anyone lies about the contents of ObamaCare, President Obama—that bastion of truthfulness and personal integrity—and his administration would publicly expose the lie and the liar.

Here’s a short video (00:02:29) of excerpts of that A.D. 2009 speech by President Obama (again, note the facial expressions after Representative Wilson said “You lie!”):

 

•  OK—here we are, four years later, and The Washington Times recently published an article entitled, “Was Rep. Joe Wilson right? Proof Obama made health care promise 23 times”.

Caught in a Derivative World


Derivatives Grow Without Government Regulation [courtesy Google Images]

Derivatives Grow Without Government Regulation

Wikipedia defines “Derivatives” as:

“A financial instrument which derives its value from the value of underlying entities such as an asset, index, or interest rate—It has no intrinsic value in itself.  Derivative transactions include a variety of financial contracts, including structured debt obligations and deposits, swaps, futures, options, caps, floors, collars, forwards, and various combinations of these.”

First, it’s important to grasp that, by definition, “derivatives” have no intrinsic value.  Because they have no intrinsic value, their perceived value is “derived” from something else that has an intrinsic value.  If a financial instrument has “intrinsic value,” its value would not be derived from something else and such instruments could not be “derivatives”.  Derivatives are and must be, by definition, intrinsically worthless.

Therefore, it seems strange, almost incomprehensible, to see that although derivatives have no intrinsic value, just four years ago, researchers calculated that the global value for derivatives totaled $1.4 quadrillion.   More recent calculations indicate that there are “only” $800 trillion worth of derivatives on the globe.

But how can there be $800 trillion worth of anything that’s intrinsically worthless?

The National Debt is a “Liar’s Loan”

I think they mean “You’re” [courtesy Google Images]

Investopedia defines “liar loans” as,

 

“A category of mortgages known as low-documentation or no-documentation mortgages that have been abused to the point where the loans are sometimes referred to as liar loans.  On certain low-documentation loan programs, such as stated income/stated asset (SISA) loans, income and assets are simply stated on the loan application.  On other loan programs, such as no income/no asset (NINA) loans, no income and assets are given on the loan application form. These loan programs open the door for unethical behavior by unscrupulous borrowers and lenders.”

By “simply stated,” Investopedia means that, even though I might earn just $20,000 per year, I could walk into bank, “simply state” that I earned $50,000 per year and the bank would take my word as true without verifying my income.  The bank would then issue a mortgage for a house appropriate for a $50,000 annual income rather than a $20,000 annual income.   Because the bank wouldn’t bother to verify my income, I’d be free lie about my income and therefore move into a house that was perhaps twice as large as a house that I could actually afford.

Internet Makes It Harder to Govern


Internet1In an article entitled “Kerry: Internet, Instant Communication Making It much Harder to Govern,” Antiwar.com reports that:

“Speaking today [August 14th, A.D. 2013] to officials at the US Embassy in Brasilia, Secretary of State John Kerry delivered comments about the ‘hardships’ facing US diplomacy, saying that a major problem was ‘this little thing called the Internet.’

“Referencing the Internet and ‘the ability of people everywhere to communicate instantaneously,’ Kerry lamented ‘it makes it much harder to govern, makes it much harder to organize people.’”

How could the internet make it “much harder to govern”?

An Affinity for Liars


“I’m going to say this again to the American people. . . . I want you to listen to me . . . .  I did not . . . have sexual relations . . . with that woman.”

“I’m going to say this again to the American people. . . . I want you to listen to me . . . . I did not . . . have sexual relations . . . with that woman.”

When we look at our politicians, we know that most of ‘em . . . the vast majority . . . are habitual, perhaps even pathological, liars.  Only rarely (Ron Paul comes to mind) do we elect someone who seems mostly honest.

And so I wonder, how can we explain the predominance of liars among our leaders?  Are lying politicians just so slick that, almost every time, they fool honest folks like you and me into voting for them?  Or is it possible that “honest folks like you and me” aren’t being fooled at all, but instead knowingly and intentionally prefer to elect liars to public office?

I think that most Americans prefer liars and therefore knowingly elect liars.  God help us, but it appears that most of us have an affinity for liars and for lies.

We try tell ourselves (OK, maybe not ourselves; but we tell others and our kids) that telling the truth is admirable, desirable, respectable and beneficial for all.  It is the best policy.  But, for ourselves, well, sometimes lying is simply a necessity.  We don’t want to lie, but sometimes it’s the easiest course of action.

As Plain as the Nose on His Face

An IRS Commissioner is grilled by a Congressman.  This “Comisar” may be great at “just following orders,” but I doubt that he could bluff very well at poker. It’s just kinda funny to watch this guy “tell the truth”.  He’s ridiculous.

It’s even more ridiculous that he’ll probably get away with telling such obvious lies–presumably, while he’s under oath.

FBI Created 17 False Flag Terrorist Attacks

According to Judge Andrew Napolitano, in the past 10 years, there’ve been 20 Terrorist plots against the US.  Three of those plots were real but were discovered and stopped by private Americans.  The other 17 were created–and then stopped–by the FBI.

The apparent purpose of these false flag operations was to deceive Americans into believing we’re under attack by foreign or domestic terrorists who are fictional.  Based on the false belief that we’re being persistently attacked, Americans tend to accept and even our government’s invasions of foreign countries and our own growing police state.

If you want to fly on an airplane, you must first be x-rayed or groped based, in part, on 17 plots created by the FBI to prove the existence of terrorists who don’t actually exist.

Every government agent–right up to the President–who authorized or participated in such fraudulent terrorist attacks should be tried for treason and, if found guilty, hanged by the neck until dead.

A Moral Foundation for an Economy?


English: Official congressional portrait of fo...

Official congressional portrait of former Congressman and Governor of Illinois, Rod Blagojevich–a “poster boy” for government corruption.  Would you buy a used state government from this man? (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

The Chicago Sun-Times recently reported (“SEC hits Illinois with securities fraud charges, says Blagojevich budget office ‘misled investors’ on pension risks”) that,

 

“Illinois broke federal securities laws and “misled investors” in misstating [that means “lying about”—and that means fraud—a criminal offense] the true health of the state’s depleted pension funds between 2005 and early 2009, the Securities and Exchange Commission announced Monday.

“The finding of securities fraud doesn’t subject Illinois to any fines or penalties, but it amounts to another fiscal black eye for a state burdened by the worst bond rating in the country and completely underwater by inaction in solving its $96 billion pension crisis.”

 

Ooo—a “fiscal black eye”.  Boy, I’ll bet Illinois is sorry now, huh?  I’ll bet they cross their hearts and hope to die if they ever, ever do it again, hmm?

On the other hand, the fact that (other than Blagojevich) Illinois won’t suffer any criminal penalties or even criminal charges, might encourage the gov-co gangsters to do it again.
