CBS News: ATF Enabling Illegal US Gun Traffic to Mexico


Badge of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firea...

Katie Couric offers a video report on project “Gun Runner”  whereby the ATF has intentionally allowed hundreds of assault-type firearms to be smuggled illegally into Mexico with the AFT’s approval.  American Border Patrol agents are now being threatened (and in one case killed) by those same weapons.

The story is reminiscent of stories of ATF and/or FBI undercover assistance provided in other criminal assaults such as the first attempt to bomb the World Trade Center.

It’s infuriating.  The same bastards that would deprive Americans of their right to keep and bear arms are knowingly allowing “assault weapons” to be funneled to criminals in Mexico.  For our government, law enforcement is just a game–a means to profit and gain power–but not a reason to serve the American people.

This video illustrates your government in action–committing crimes of its own to supposedly gain “intelligence” about other criminals that are not (yet) employed by our government.  While government is interested in gaining knowledge other criminals but not the least bit concerned about knowing or exercising moral values.  It’s the lack of moral values that will ultimately cause our government to collapse.

American Fascism: The Robber Barons’ Return

After the Civil War, the U.S. saw the rise of the “robber barons”—wealthy industrialists like John D. Rockefeller (Standard Oil), J.P. Morgan (finance), Andrew Carnegie (steel), and Cornelius Vanderbilt (railroads).  These “robber barons” devised schemes whereby their seemingly disparate corporations could combine to gain control of markets, freeze out competition, create monopolies, and then raise prices, profits and power to exorbitant levels.  These objectives were achieved in a number of industries—in part because the robber barons were able to bribe congressman, senators and even presidents enact laws that favored monopolies.

The word “fascism” (as popularized a half-century later by Mussolini and the Nazis) did not exist in the late 1800s.  If it had, that combination of rich, corporate “robber barons” and Washington politicians could have been justly called American “fascism” in the late 1800s.  Today, that same combination could be still be called “fascism”.

In the 1800s, “combinations” of wealthy, powerful corporations came to be called “trusts”.  These trust schemes created great wealth and power for the “robber barons,” but also created great poverty, jealousy and antagonism among the majority of the America’s working people.  The people’s adverse reaction to “trusts” eventually inspired “anti-trust” laws that restricted the robber barons’ ability to employ trusts to create monopolies.  The Sherman Anti-Trust Act was passed in A.D. 1890 but was not significantly enforced until the early 20th century.

Economist Marc Faber has Bad News and Good News


Components of the liability side of the Federa...

Image via Wikipedia

On February 21st, Alex Jones interviewed economist Marc Faber concerning the current state of the US and global economies and where we’re headed.  That interview is recorded in two videos at YouTube under the headline:

Marc Faber:  The Total Financial Collapse of America is Here! – Alex Jones Tv 1/2”.

In fact, that headline is disingenuous.  It might be a misstatement.  It might be an exaggeration.  It might be fear-mongering.

In fact, Mr. Faber did not expressly say the “collapse” is here—as in “right now” or nearly “right now”.

Faber did say that we are in the “end game” right now.  And he implied that an economic collapse is inevitable. But he repeatedly implied that the US and global economic systems could hold together for another three to seven years.

Predictions: Dollar Collapse & 15-Year Depression


Great Depression

Here’s a video from A.D. 2009 that reports on Ron Paul predicting a dollar collapse in 1 to 4 years (2010-2013) and a depression lasting 15 years.

Here’s a recent video featuring Damon Vickers (financial analyst) predicting that the debt is too great to be absorbed and must therefore precipitate a dollar collapse:

And just in case you haven’t yet “got the message,” here’s another, higher-quality video featuring Peter Schiff that predicts the dollar’s demise.

Eric Sprott: The Government Lied… There’s No More Silver!


Hoard of ancient gold coins

Image via Wikipedia

Eric Sprott (a financial analyst) speaks on the economy, gold & silver.

Official figures on gold/silver have been “misstated” by the gov-co.  Gold–the premier investment for the past decade–is held by less than 1% of investors.  If the number of gold investors increased from just 1% to 3%, the demand for gold would theoretically increase by 300%–and the price?  God only knows.

If interest in silver increases similarly, the price of silver can also skyrocket even more explosively because the supply of silver is far more limited than the supply of gold.

The Bankruptcy of the United States; James Traficant’s Speech


Official portrait of former congressman James ...

Image via Wikipedia

According to Wikipedia, “James Anthony Traficant, Jr. (born May 8, 1941) is a former Democratic Representative in the United States Congress from Ohio (from 1985 to 2002). He represented the 17th Congressional District, which centered around his hometown of Youngstown and included parts of three counties in northeast Ohio’s Mahoning Valley. He was expelled [from Congress] after being convicted of taking bribes, filing false tax returns, racketeering, and forcing his aides to perform chores at his farm in Ohio and on his houseboat in Washington, D.C., and was released from prison on September 2, 2009, after serving a seven-year sentence.”

I don’t know the details or timing concerning Mr. Traficant’s conviction in A.D. 2002, but if the criminal allegations against him were true, I would’ve expected him to have been made Speaker of the House rather than expelled from Congress.

In fact, many people believe that Mr. Trafficant was ultimately tried and sentenced in A.D. 2002 for having made an extraordinary speech in A.D. 1993 to Congress.  In that speech, Congressman Traficant alleged 1) the U.S. government is bankrupt; 2) the federal government was dissolved by the Emergency Banking Act of A.D. 1933; 3) the “receivers” of the US bankruptcy were the “international bankers via the United Nations”; and 4) the US monetary system was a fraud.

As I said, this was an extraordinary speech.  He was lucky to have merely been jailed; he might’ve been shot.
