Bush Military Official: The Empire’s Ship is Sinking


Retired U.S. Army Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson was a former national security adviser to the Reagan administration and spent years as an assistant to Secretary of State Colin Powell during both Bush administrations. He’s been among the “bad guys” in our Military-Industrial Complex.  He’s been a card-carrying member of the “bad guys”.

However, about a decade ago, he decided to “come clean”.

In the following interview, he describes the rampant corruption inside the de facto government and the corporate interests driving foreign policy.

Brilliant.

As you listen, take notes.  You might be surprised at what you learn.

For example, Col. Wilkerson predicts that US military will remain in Afghanistan for another 50 years.  I doubt that our nation and/or military-industrial complex can coexist and both survive for another 50 years.  I therefore doubt Co. Wilkerson’s prediction.  Nevertheless, for the first time, I understand his argument that our government intends to remain in Afghanistan for the next 50 years.

Obama’s “Signature Achievement”

The Washington Times reported on President Obama’s reaction to the San Bernardino terrorist attack in “White House says stricter gun laws can prevent terrorist attacks”.

Oh, please.  That contemptible s.o.b. is exploiting the deaths of 14 people to try to advance his ridiculous gun-control agenda.

 

Despite mounting evidence that Islamist terrorists were responsible for the mass slayings in California, the White House said Thursday that stricter gun control could have prevented the attack and vowed to keep “scrubbing” the nation’s laws for ways that President Obama can take executive action to restrict gun ownership.”

Gun control is President Obama’s solution to every problem.

Government’s War Against Savers

Reuters published “India’s ‘gold monetization’ scheme could have a big impact on global demand”.  According to that article:

“Last week the Indian government approved the so-called gold-monetization scheme . . . [by] creating a system in which Indians holding private gold will be able to deposit it at banks—and then earn interest on their bullion holdings.

The government plans to then make the deposited gold available to buyers across India. The aim is to reduce gold imports from outside the country, which run at nearly 1,000 tonnes yearly.

“India’s cabinet also approved a ‘gold bond’ program in which citizens will be able to buy interest-bearing bonds backed by gold, rather than owning physical gold.

Estimates are that private citizens across India hold tens or even hundreds of millions of ounces of gold—which could become available to the banking system, if the monetization program is well received.”

 

First, a metric ton weighs 2,200 pounds.  If India imports 1,000 metric tons of gold at $1,200 per ounce, they’re importing $42 billion worth of gold each year.

India’s current GDP is about $2 trillion per year. Thus, India currently spends 2.1% of its annual GDP purchasing more gold from foreign sources. That’s 2.1% (more or less) last year; 2.1% this year; 2.1% next year.  Note that US economists hope that the US economy will grow by 3% annually.  Compare that 3% hope to India’s 2.1% annual drag on their economy due to purchasing foreign gold.  You can see that 2.1% is a significant expense for an economy the size of India’s and cause for governmental concern.

Administrative Law vs. “Show Me The Law!”


Rowan County is located in Kentucky.  Kim Davis is the Rowan County clerk who has repeatedly refused to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples and has therefore been jailed by order of a federal judge.

Here’s a video of a Kentucky attorney, Michael Peroutka, explainting a constitutional defense for Ms. Davis at a rally.  He argues that she’s broken no law, because there is no law requiring her to issue marriage licenses to homosexuals.  Yes, there may be court opinions alleging that Ms Davis must issue such licenses, but court opinions are not “law”–they are only opinions.

video    00:06:57

 

As Mr. Peroutka pointed out, Article 1 Section 1 of the federal Constitution declares, “All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States . . . .”  If all legislative powers are vested in Congress, no legislative powers are vested in the courts (or in the executive branch, which is currently famous for issuing executive orders that seem to have the force of “law”). That means that the judicial and executive branches of the federal government have no authority to legislate and “make” law.

If the only charges against Kim Davis are that she’s defined a court opinion and/or executive order, then she has broken no law and it’s wrong, fraudulent and illegal to jail her for breaking a law because there is no such law.

Civil Asset Foreclosure in Two Minutes


In essence, if the cop merely suspects that your money might’ve been associated with a crime, he can take it from you without a warrant, without a trial, without a conviction.   It’s an exaggeration to say so, but under civil asset forefeiture laws, if I were a cop and I claimed to “suspect” that you were the gunman on the “grassy knoll” who may’ve killed Kennedy  back in A.D. 1963, I could take whatever money you have without ever proving my suspicions were correct.

Preserving Government’s Capacity to Spy on Americans

Last week, the Huffington Post reported in “Loretta Lynch: ‘I Am Very Concerned’ For Americans If A Key Section Of The Patriot Act Expires,” that:

 

“Earlier this month, the House of Representatives passed the USA Freedom Act, which would reform aspects of the Patriot Act and put an end to the government’s bulk collection of phone records.

Section 215 [of the Patriot Act] has been the legal basis for the intelligence community’s bulk metadata collection.

“U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch said she’s ‘very concerned‘ about what could happen if section 215 of the Patriot Act, set to expire June 1, is not reauthorized by Congress.

“My biggest fear is that we will lose important eyes on people who have made it clear that their mission is to harm American people here and abroad,” Lynch said in an interview with CBS.

 

By “people who have made it clear that their mission is to harm the American people,” does Mz. Lynch mean only foreign terrorists, or does she also include the federal government–which is certainly bound to “harm the American people” by depriving us of our rights and liberties?

Closing Walmarts

Over the past week or two we’ve seen that at least five Walmarts have closed for six months due to “plumbing problems”.

If the Hoover Dam broke, that might cause a “plumbing problem” that would take more than six months to fix

However, there are no plumbing problems in modern buildings that requires six months to repair.  Modern contractors could easily bulldoze an entire Walmart store, rip the concrete slab and all the underground plumbing, and rebuild a new Walmart on the same site in less than six months.

More, Walmart is all about the money and stores closed for six months wouldn’t seem to make any money.

Thus, the “plumbing problem” excuse for store closings is clearly a blatant lie.

Given that Walmart has given its employees only a few hours notice that they would soon be unemployed, Walmart has created a serious public relations problem that won’t be easily forgotten or erased.  Alienating the public to any degree has got to be bad for business.   Walmart’s conduct has been so inexplicable and heavy-handed that I can’t imagine any modern, major corporation behaving with such indifference to the public–unless that corporation was under some powerful compulsion to do so.
