No surprise there.Politicians and Preachers are the sleaziest beings on the planet.I did work for a former VPs family at one of their mountain homes.Lets just say the were not as conservative as the voting base believed.They were pretty down to earth and friendly which kind of took me by surprise.Most famous or rich people Ive dealt with were stingy and arrogant assholes.

Re: Corruption in D.C.

Retired Marine Colonel Pete Martino Warns Of Takeover


Quote:
Homeland Security’s “See Something, Say Something” campaign motivated me to say something. Since that’s the purpose of this tax payer funded behavior modification program, consider this a rare government success story.

I see a world being led by the least among us, while the best continue to re-arrange the deck chairs on the Titanic. The biggest threat facing our country is not terrorism, the debt, drugs, poverty, healthcare, immigration, climate change, abortion, gay rights, racism, school shootings, the militarization of the police, the privatization of the military, or even the wave of biological time bombs walking across our southern border and being escorted to Everytown USA. To anyone looking for a campaign slogan:

“It’s the corruption stupid!”

"Worst. Recovery. Ever." Except For Bankers

Quote:
For most (practically all) Americans, this is officially the worst recovery ever. As we pointed out previously, wage growth has never been slower in a post World War II recovery. However, not everyone is hurting...

*GOLDMAN SACHS SAID TO RAISE JUNIOR STAFF'S SALARIES ABOUT 20%

This comes just weeks after Morgan Stanley announced it would raise junior banker salaries by 25%. It appears President Obama's hopes for 'fair, livable' minimum wage is being heeded by the banking community - good patriots, they are...

Re: Corruption in D.C.

This guy is making some sense. I hope he's wrong or that enough people talk about it so it doesn't happen.

Lt. General Mclnerney Warns of "Flight 370 Attack On 9/11/14

Quote:
When the whole Malaysian Airlines "event" was going on, there was a curious interview with Lt. Gen. Tom McInerney (well established MIC insider, evil creep, and Faux News contributor) where he said "we should be looking for flight 370 in Pakistan or Eastern Iran."
For some reason, my "spidey sense" started tingling, which doesn't happen often. I even questioned at the time if the story was a build up to bigger events. Then there were unsubstantiated reports of a "twin" MA airliner being spotted at a hanger in Tel Aviv. Anyone who's studied the events of 9/11, knows that the Mossad and Saudi Arabia most likely played a role. (see redacted 28 pages...oh wait, you can't)
In the meantime, another evil creep, Cheney, gave a dire warning about "another bigger 9/11." Combine that with all the recent hysteria about "ISIS" and it's threats to ze homeland, the open borders, "Westerners joining the Jihad,", "increasing terrorist chatter," and it's hard not to wonder if they're preparing for another false flag on this upcoming 13th anniversary.
So now, McInerney is back on the scene saying we need to be at "DEFCON 1" and mentions a "flight 370 9/11/14 attack" again. He's also talking about some book that's going to be released on 9/7 and that it will be "Earth shattering." (maybe it will be about the missing 2.3 trillion..
I sincerely hope that my "spidey sense" is wrong and I am just barking at shadows, but given the history, it might be wise not to travel during this time. Make of it what you will. I felt like it was at least worth a mention.
Here are the videos for reference:
Gen. McInerney says MH370 is in Pakistan (or Eastern Iran)...

Shortly after it was revealed by Politico that NBC had stooped to new lows in favoritist nepotism, having paid Chelsea Clinton an annual salary of $600,000 for "occasional" reporting work, in effect making her one of the highest paid if not the highest paid "reporter" in the world, the former first daughter quickly stunned everyone when, in the aftermath of her mother's just as stunning commentary on personal wealth and what being "broke" in the New Normal apparently means, she stated rhetorically that "I was curious if I could care about money and I couldn't." So, moments ago, to prove that she really no longer cares about such earthly things as money, since between her hedge fund husband and her parents, she has more than she can possibly spend in one lifetime, AP reported that Chelsea Clinton is quitting her job as a reporter at NBC News...

Re: Corruption in D.C.

Central banks are buying stocks with billions of dollars of money printed out of thin air in order to prop up the markets in order to give the 'illusion' of prosperity/confidence. The entire system is rigged. The SP 500 hit it's all time high the other day on record low volume.
It's like the Trueman show. Everything is fake/rigged. They attempt to manipulate you by shaping your reality. They want you to keep spending and going into debt in order to keep the false reality going. It's what makes them money. At the same time, it is what destroys you and you're family's future. They don't care though. It's making them money.
As a country, we need to rid ourselves of the Fed Reserve. It's a big fat parasite that is sucking America dry.

Re: Corruption in D.C.

Here's the PROOF. The entire financial system is corrupt. Goldman Sachs, the Fed, the media, the judicial system, and all the regulators are in bed with each other. There is NO accountability. It's just an orgy of corruption feasting upon the human cattle!

Re: Corruption in D.C.

September 30, 2014
Santiago, Chile
Simon Black

He had a vision for what the state could be.

His vision was a state that was intricately involved in every person’s life from cradle to the grave.

It was responsible for their education, it was their place of work and source of income, and it would monitor and guide the entertainment for all of the society.

Life would be characterized by the government provision of care and support throughout. People would grow to rely upon the state in every aspect of their lives, and they would have no reason to seek out alternatives.

Eventually people would become dependent on the state’s survival for their survival. Thus their lives would then be dedicated to the ‘greater good’, with the individual existing simply for the state.

This terrifying vision of a dystopian society could only be the construct of an author like George Orwell or Ayn Rand, right? Something you would only see elaborated on the pages of fiction.

In fact, this was the vision of Otto von Bismarck, Chancellor of Imperial Germany in the 19th century.

And this wasn’t just a dream. It was a strategy.

From government healthcare at birth to education in a government school, followed by a career in civil service, and a government pension in old age, the state was with you from beginning to end.

One of the most important stages in the life-long relationship between the state and the individual in Bismarck’s mind was through employment.

There you were directly working to support the government’s aims (for the greater good of course), while at the same time being wholly dependent on them for your survival.

This was the cornerstone of his plan for the strength of the empire—having a populace entirely dependent on (and thus committed to) the state.

“My idea was to bribe the working classes, or shall I say, to win them over, to regard the state as a social institution existing for their sake and interested in their welfare,” Bismarck explained.

You can be sure that Bismarck would approve of modern society.

Today in the Land of the Free, everyone is required to pay into the Social Security system, and over 90% of students go to public schools.

With the passage of the Affordable Care Act, the state is exerting its control over your medical care. And now with a new bill comes the crown jewel of state employment.

Presenting Senate Bill 2726: the Strengthening Forgiveness for Public Servants Act.

If passed, the bill aims to get young people into government employment by promising to forgive their student loan debt.

Could they be any more devious?

First they’ve managed to let inflation absolutely explode, especially when it comes to the cost of university education.

Then they actively encourage students to pay for said education by going deeply into debt, often with government loans funded by the [Chinese] taxpayer.

This created a massive class of young people who are now deeply enslaved by their state debt as they vie for jobs as assistant manager at the Gap.

And now the government has created a way out. Young people need only become public servants. Emphasis on ‘servants’.

Somewhere Otto von Bismarck is smiling.

Re: Corruption in D.C.

Excellent sad analysis. I only wished I could shake America awake...for the sake of these kids, mostly. I'm very concerned for their future.

Re: Corruption in D.C.

Well, surprise surprise...the CIA has been behind about half the protests from non-gov't orgainizations (NGOs) in the past, and probably more. They're behind the protests in Hong Kong. I was wondering why climate change was a main theme during the recent protests in NYC. Now I know.

Is the U.S. Secretly Egging On Hong Kong Protesters?

Re: Corruption in D.C.

Very interesting video. Must see! Powerful.

Rule From The Shadows: The Psychology Of Power

Quote:

Via StormCloudsGathering,

“Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of somebody, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.”



-President Woodrow Wilson in his book the “The New Freedom” published in 1913

The quest for power is the primary driving force of history, always has been, always will be. Those who fail to recognize this principle are not spared in the grand chess game, but rather are moved and manipulated by forces that they do not understand.

From the perspective of those who dominate the board it is obviously preferable to have a population of ignorant pawns than it is to have an array of opponents which are capable of mounting an effective resistance. To that end it has always been in the interest of the ruling class to cultivate illusions which obscure the true nature of the game.

It’s Not Just Spying – How The NSA Has Turned Into A Giant Profit Center For Corrupt Insiders
http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-1...rrupt-insiders

Quote:
Dear NSA Employees, You Now Have a Green Light to Loot and Pillage. It’s Time to Get Paid:



Are you just another one of those frustrated NSA employees who feels that unconstitutionally spying on your fellow citizenry under false pretenses isn’t giving you same thrill it once did? If so, have no fear.



Are you are sick and tired of having to spilt your precious working hours defending the destruction of our nation’s founding document to those pesky terroristic media dinosaurs who still think investigative journalism belongs in Amerika? If so, have I got a solution for you.



While it may sound too good to be true, trust me it’s not. You see, in recent years almost all crony-capitalist criminal activities have been deemed legal in the land of the free (to pillage). This incredible opportunity allows you to directly leverage your intelligence skill-set to earn the big bucks you know you’ve always deserved. You can now do just that by working in the private sector without having to give up that cushy government day job! I mean if we’re going to have this banana republic thing going we may as well GET PAID. Am I right?



Keep at it patriots,
Michael Krieger


If the above sounds like a joke, unfortunately it is not. Last week, two very important stories came out; one from Reuters and the other from Buzzfeed. They both zero in on how current NSA employees are using their expertise and connections to make big money in the private sector while still working at the NSA...
