The Bretton Woods Committee

In A.D. 1944, an international conference was held at Bretton Woods, New Hampshire, to establish a new monetary system for the post-WWII world.  A fundamental principle of the resulting “Bretton Woods Agreement” was that the US dollar would be backed by gold and would come to be used as the world reserve currency.

In A.D. 1971, President Nixon closed the “gold window” and stopped redeeming foreign-held US dollars with gold.  Some people suppose that when the US dollar became pure fiat and was no longer redeemable in gold, the Bretton Woods Agreement ended.

However, the original Bretton Woods Agreement involved much more than merely promising to redeem foreign-held dollars with gold.  Vestiges of that Agreement continue to function and exert influence under the oversight of The Bretton Woods Committee.

President Obama–Stop “Helping” Us!

A recent article in The New York Times (“Obama Will Seek Broad Expansion of Overtime Pay”) reports that,

 “President Obama this week will seek to force American businesses to pay more overtime to millions of workers, the latest move by his administration to confront corporations that have had soaring profits even as wages have stagnated.

“On Thursday, the president will direct the Labor Department to revamp its regulations to require overtime pay for several million additional fast-food managers, loan officers, computer technicians and others whom many businesses currently classify as “executive or professional” employees to avoid paying them overtime, according to White House officials briefed on the announcement.”

The rationale for this increase is probably the belief that if people’s incomes rise, they spend more and theoretically stimulate the economy.

But, on the other hand, if corporate labor costs rise, either corporate profits fall and/or prices go up.  If prices rise, the economy tends to slow.

So what will happen?  By raising some employee’s incomes, will we stimulate or slow the economy?

Answer:  That’s the wrong question.

The Moral Foundation for Governance

The Washington Times reports in “The Putin problem: U.S. needs Russian rockets for spy satellites” that, last Thursday (March 13th, A.D. 2014) ,

 

“Secretary of State John F. Kerry said a “a very serious series of steps” would occur if the Crimean Peninsula, currently occupied by Russian military hardware and thousands of troops, votes to rejoin Russia. He did not get into specifics as to what those steps might be, only saying to a Senate Appropriations Committee panel that there would be ‘a response of some kind’.”

What’s “a very serious series of steps”?

It’s the boogaloo followed by the funky chicken followed by the lindy hop.   It’s never before been attempted on live TV but will be seen next week when President Obama and Secretary of State Kerry team up to make a surprise appearance on Dancing With The Stars.

In fact, a “very serious series of steps” may occur on Dancing With The Stars, but our government will take no meaningful steps to punish Russia for annexing the Crimea.

“The Most Dangerous Thing To You and Your Family is Government”


If government really wanted to protect the American people, the first thing it would do is disarm itself. Instead, it’s placed orders for over 2 billion bullets. If you trust the U.S. government, you’re a fool. (Incidentally, this is the 1,400th post on this blog.)

Actor Steven Seagal Speaks on Obama’s Impeachment


Actor Steven Seagal recently spoke at the Western Conservative Conference.  He warned that America was in deep trouble and touched on the possibility of President Obama’s impeachment.  Judging by the seemingly mild audience response, either the Conference, itself, was not too large–or even the “Conservatives” were taken aback by the extent of Seagal’s “political incorrectness”.

The content of Segal’s speech wasn’t profound.  We all know the facts that he referred to.  But Seagal’s speech was still another important “leaf in the breeze” that tells us which way the political wind is beginning to blow in this country.  There are Americans who are furious about the path Obama has chosen for this nation.  Those Americans tend to give Obama a pass in that he’s still entitled to some “affirmative action”–and no one wants risk accusing Obama of treason and wind up being accused of racism.

Still, I believe there’s a fury out there that animates 20% of the American people–maybe more.  This fury is unseen and unstated, but it’s there, waiting silently for some candidate or some political party who will call a spade a spade and fight to push this country back onto the right path.

I’m not talking about conservatives fighting for big business or liberals fighting for big government. I’m talking about candidates who will fight against big business, big labor and big government and fight, instead, for the Liberty of each individual man and woman. There’s a fury out there that’s waiting to support a candidate who will fight for the small American rather than the big institution.

Rising American Police State sees American People as Primary Enemy


It's not just a "radical" poster.  Obama in particular and government in general routinely violates the Constitution (the People's law).  As such, he is an "enemy" of the American people. [courtesy Google Images]

The principle enemy of the people of The United States of America is the government of the United States.  A lot of people would probably dismiss that opinion as crazy talk from the lunatic fringe.

But the adversarial relationship that exists between the American people and the American government is not the least bit unusual.  The primary enemy of the people of every nation is their own government.  Government seeks to convince that it’s “here to help us,” but it’s here to rule and exploit us.

Did Rome really fall to the barbarians?  Or did Rome fall to the Roman government’s excesses?

Was Italy ruined by the Allies in WWII?  Or was Italy actually destroyed by Mussolini and the Fascist Government?

How many Germans died in WWII?  Who reduced the nation of Germany to rubble–the Americans?  The Russians?  Or the Nazis?  Germany was destroyed by its own government.

Who destroyed the former Soviet Union?  The United States–or was it the Soviet Union’s government and its idiotic enforcement of the philosophy of communism?

Similarly, who’s responsible for bringing the USA to the edge of economic collapse changing the Land of the Free into a police state? Who’s responsible for the loss of our liberty, standard of living and the American Dream?

MOOA meets Ecclesiastes 3:18


The Island of Dr. Moreau MOOA:  Man or Other Animals [courtesy Google Images]

MOOA: Man or Other Animals

If you follow this blog, you know that one of my major focuses (some might say “obsessions”) it the phrase “man or other animals” (“MOOA”) as it appears in a number of state and federal laws.  That phrase indicates that the government perceives us all as animals rather than “men made in in God’s image” (as per Genesis 1:26-28) and who are “endowed by our Creator with certain unalienable Rights” (as per the “Declaration of Independence”). (See Man or Other Animals #1 and the “Category” “Man or Other Animals” which lists all of my articles relevant to that concept.)

By defining us as “animals” the government has achieved what Dr. Moreau attempted with chemistry and genetics in the fiction entitled “The Island of Dr. Moreau”.  By defining us as “animals,” the government has presumably stripped us of virtually all of our most meaningful rights, and relieved itself of the obligation “to secure these [God-given, unalienable] rights” to every man, woman and child (found in the third sentence of the “Declaration of Independence”).
