News That Proves We’re Screwed – The Fall of The Republic UPDATED

30 Aug

The corrupt shadow government is unveiled a little more each week.

Two Cheers for Syrian Islamists (ForeignPolicy.com)

It is not a secret that the U.S. government is funding Syrian rebels, who include members of Al Qaeda, but this may be the first time they have openly called for “two cheers” in praise of the radical Islamic Jihadists fighting against the Assad regime. I find it odd that the title is so complimentary, yet in the article it specifically says, “Of course, Syrian Islamists are no friends of the United States–merely the enemies of one of its enemies.” This is like smiling while delivering horrible news of betrayal. When I read that, I got this picture in my head of a woman smiling as she says to her friend “Let’s go celebrate your marriage with ice cream! Of course, your husband is cheating on you.” Backwards is forwards, up is down, wrong is right, logic is insanity.

Bill Gross: “Normal” Economic Growth Impossible Now (moneymorning.com)

“Legendary market maven Bill Gross, the so-called “King of Bonds,” said investors will flat-out lose money if they continue employing the “buy and hold” strategies of the past.

“In his August Investment Outlook, Gross told investors that “financial repression, QEs of all sorts and sizes” and low interest rates will “dominate the timescape” for decades, maybe longer.

Investors must adjust to the new world order to avoid being the loser in this zero-growth environment, Gross warned.

“Ultimately, Gross said, the stock market’s historical, inflation-adjusted 6.6% annual growth rate is unsustainable.

“Gross, of course, is a bond man.

“In March, he launched an ETF version of his popular Pimco Total Return Fund (PTTRX) – the world’s biggest mutual fund, with more than $260 billion in assets. The Pimco Total Return ETF (NYSE: BOND) quickly attracted $2.1 billion in total deposits and has outpaced the S&P 500 by more than 5% so far.

“But even bonds – both government-backed and corporate – can’t escape the realities of a no-growth economy.

According to global economic trend forecaster Chris Martenson, a former VP of a Fortune 300 company, the historical growth rates investors have come to expect – in every asset class – are no longer mathematically possible.

“Right now, there are dangerous economic constraints,” he said, “mainly created by failed government policies, which show exponential growth in our markets is impossible.”

Exclusive: U.S. banks told to make plans for preventing collapse | Reuters (chicagotribune.com)

(Reuters) – U.S. regulators directed five of the country’s biggest banks, including Bank of America Corp and Goldman Sachs Group Inc, to develop plans for staving off collapse if they faced serious problems, emphasizing that the banks could not count on government help.

The two-year-old program, which has been largely secret until now, is in addition to the “living wills” the banks crafted to help regulators dismantle them if they actually do fail. It shows how hard regulators are working to ensure that banks have plans for worst-case scenarios and can act rationally in times of distress.

Brandon J. Raub, Former Marine, Detained After Anti-Government Facebook Postings (Huffington Post)

Marine Veteran Brandon Raub Sentenced To Up To 30 Days In Psych Ward Over Facebook Posts (businessinsider.com)

Excerpt:

“Lawyers from The Rutherford Institute represented Brandon Raub during the three-hour hearing today at the John Randolph Medical Center and released a statement, saying Raub has been ordered to “up to 30 days’ further confinement in a VA psych ward” after “government officials againpointed to Raub’s Facebook posts as the sole reason for their concern and for his continued incarceration.”

“According to Raub’s mother, authorities from the FBI, Secret Service and Chesterfield County PD came to their door on Thursday evening, questioned Raub about his Facebook posts, then handcuffed him and placed him in a Chesterfield PD squad car before taking him to John Randolph Psychiatric Hospital in Hopewell, Va.”

“Both the FBI and Secret Service said Raub was not arrested or charged, but the Rutherford Institute statement points out that “if the police have put handcuffs on you and you’re being held against your will, that qualifies as an arrest.”

The Associated Press: Texas jury convicts man in stand your ground case.

The Associated Press: Texas jury convicts man in stand your ground case.

If it was a handgun and he had a permit, it’s NOT ILLEGAL TO CARRY IT, and it shouldn’t be the reason to convict someone in a self-defense case if the gun truly was reasonably used as self-defense. I’m so tired of these laws being implemented with the obvious goal being the eventual outlaw of guns. Our Bill of Rights is shrinking before our eyes, well not everyone’s eyes, not the eyes fixated on their I(suck)Phones. Eric Holder must love this.

 

 

Is Your Choice Of Food A Fundamental Right? | Food Renegade.

Is Your Choice Of Food A Fundamental Right? | Food Renegade.

HightowerLowdown.com

This is a wonderful article that really resonated with me.  The underlined parts are lines that truly sung to my innate, undying need to be free.  It brings on a sort of nostalgia, remembering American History and school plays about the Founding Fathers and Betsey Ross.  I can still hear all the songs we so proudly and cheerfully sang in music class, praising this once great nation:  “Our Country ‘Tis Of Thee,” “You’re a Grand Old Flag,” “America the Beautiful,” “I’m Proud to Be An American,” “This Land is Your Land,” and of course “The Star Spangled Banner.”  I don’t know what else to say except that my heart has sunk into the pit of my stomach.

“You grow a garden; you expect to be able to harvest the food from that garden and eat it. You raise a cow; you expect to be able to milk that cow and consume the milk. You raise chickens; you expect to gather eggs and eat them. It’s uncomplicated, simple, a fundamental right. Perhaps you wouldn’t feel this way if you lived under some other form of government, but here, now, in America and other democratized countries, this is what you expect.

According to Wisconsin Judge Patrick J. Fiedler, you do not have a fundamental right to consume the food you grow or own or raise. The Farm To Consumer Legal Defense Fund, the pioneers in defending food sovereignty and freedom, recently argued before Judge Fiedler that you and I have a constitutional right to consume the foods of our choice. Judge Fiedler saw no merit to the argument and ruled against the FTCLDF. When they asked him to clarify his statement, these were his words:

“no, Plaintiffs do not have a fundamental right to own and use a dairy cow or a dairy herd;”

“no, Plaintiffs do not have a fundamental right to consume the milk from their own cow;”

“no, Plaintiffs do not have a fundamental right to produce and consume the foods of their choice…”
