The Israel Deception

Is the return of Israel in the 20th century truly a work of God, or is it a result of a cosmic chess move to deceive the elect by the adversary?

Government at work: Never a plan B for debt ceiling and Federal debt limits

Last August, the Republican led Congress played political games with the American people, and eventually broke their campaign promises by voting to raise the debt ceiling on our national debt.  Now that the 2012 elections are coming up fast, the government once again faces a new ceiling as very little attempts were made to step deficit spending.

Our government leaders, from Congress to the President are proving one thing... they are not the A Team, and for Americans, there is no plan b.

When Obama learned that the deal negotiated among the congressional leaders would require a two-step increase in the debt limit, he told Rob Nabors, the White House director of legislative affairs, “The one thing I said I actually needed, they didn’t get,” referring to Reid and Pelosi. “I needed this to go past the election, and they didn’t get it for me. This can’t work.”

Obama sent word that he wanted the two Democratic leaders at the White House at 6 p.m. that Sunday, July 24. No reason was given.
Reid arrived in the Oval Office with his chief of staff, David Krone.

“I don’t trust these guys,” the president said dismissively.
Krone either would not or could not conceal his anger.

“Wait a second,” Obama said, interrupting someone else who was about to speak. “I can tell David has something else to say.”
“Mr. President, I am sorry — with all due respect — that we are in this situation that we’re in, but we got handed this football on Friday night. And I didn’t create this situation. The first thing that baffles me is, from my private-sector experience, the first rule that I’ve always been taught is to have a Plan B. And it is really disheartening that you, that this White House did not have a Plan B.” - Washington Post via Zerohedge

This event is one of the underlying problems with Washington, and with politicians.  They have no concept of money, where it comes from, what it means to the economy by spending it, and thus, government has no clue about creating monetary policies that help the country, or the American poeple.

As Jeremy Irons said it best in his Margin Call speech... "It's just money... it's made up."  This is the world today, and money in the eyes of Wall Street, and the government.

Disaster Preparedness Expo's in Arizona and Washington

There are going to be two large Disaster preparedness and sustainability expos coming to Arizona and Washington in late September and early October.  The 2012 Spokane Sustainable Preparedness Expo is scheduled for Sept. 30 in Spokane, Washington, and the Arizona Survivalist/Prepper Expo is set for Oct. 6-7 in Mesa, Arizona.

Additionally, there will be a Community Outreach for Preparedness in Emergencies training in Scottsdale, Arizona at the Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts on Sept. 15.
Like Y2K, economic, environmental, and political events are leading hundreds of thousands to research and learn the skills to be prepared for one or more disasters.  Since President Obama took office, the number of American purchasing firearms and learning to use them has vastly increased.  In fact, last Christmas, gun sales and other disaster preparedness items were among the top items purchased during the holiday shopping season.

Whether you believe in conspiracy, or simple prudence, preparing for emergencies and disasters is a necessity in America, especially at a time when the weather, economy, and threat of war loom large over the global and national landscapes.

Former budget director says Ron Paul is only man who is right about the Fed

On Sept. 10, former Reagan budget director David Stockman appeared on CNBC to talk about the economy, and the Federal Reserve.  During his nine minute interview, Stockman slammed the Republican party quite often on their fiscal policies and reiterated that Ron Paul is the only man who is right about the Federal Reserve, and its affect on the failing economy.

"Ron Paul is the only one who is right about the Fed, and the Fed is the heart of the problem. They have destroyed the capital markets and the money markets; interest rates mean nothing; everything is trading off the Fed and Wall Street isn't even home - as it's now a bunch of computers trading word-clouds emitted by this central banker and that" - Zerohedge transcript of interview

The 2012 primaries and coming election will be the result of an America that does not truly want monetary change, but simply, the ability to keep the status quo of the welfare state while not having to deal with the repurcussions of a $16 trillion debt.

Daily show interview at the DNC shows just how far liberal hate and intolerance goes

For the most part, the Daily Economist tries to stick to primarily economic, financial, and monetary topics.  But the sad truth of today's society is, politics is now entrenched in every portion of our lives.  From the bedrooms, to what we eat, to what we are allowed to think.

On Sept. 5, Jon Stewart and the Daily Show completely obliterated once and for all the myth that liberals and the Democratic party is the 'big tent' of inclusion, and that hate really starts in the people who claim the affiliation, and not by those who simply have a different viewpoint on the matters of the world.

Most Americans would like to just live out their lives, enjoying the fruits of their labor, and finding the foundational desires of freedom of religion, speech, and the ability to succeed without government or activists mandating how you should do so.

Unfortunately, there are those who see tolerance as you being forced to accept their standards and viewpoints, and tolerance and compromise is in reality capitulation.  Where Christians find the action to be intolerable, liberals find the person themselves to be the problem, and thus hate and intolerance is more personal, than a topic open for discussion.

Welcome to the new America, as seen through the eyes of those who want to force not only their desires and viewpoints onto the majority, but with the agenda of destroying any alternative to their brave new world of hate.

Gold crosses $1700 per ounce as Draghi decides printing money is sound policy

On Sept. 5, ECB Chairman Mario Draghi decided that the days of rumors were done, and printing money was now in vogue.  In a speech where he descended upon Europe with the printing presses ablaze, gold responded in kind by crossing the $1700 per ounce barrier for the first time since March.

Earlier we noted Gold's seeming clairvoyance with regard the expansion of the Fed and ECB balance sheets over the last few years. It seems the EUR strength overnight (or stop-run) has provided just enough USD weakness impetus to nudge spot Gold (not futures) back over $1700 for the first time since March 13th. - Zerohedge

Remember, remember the 5th of September, the central bank treason and plot.  I see no reason why the central bank treason should ever be forgot.

$16 trillion: When money becomes meaningless to government spenders

If you first take $100 and multiply it by 100 you reach one fourth of the median income from American households.  If you then take that dollar amount ($10000) and multiply it by 100 you have reached a million.

Most people in life will never see that much money at one time, so to understand how large a trillion is like trying to read War and Peace in original Russian.  Even for someone with a dictionary, it is a feat that stretches the boundaries of their thinking capacity.

Now realize that the government spends nearly $4 trillion per year, and borrows almost half of that from the banks.  As the government continues to expand on the $16 trillion national debt, the true realization comes when you realize that with numbers this high, money becomes meaningless.

What $1 million looks like.

What $1 trillion looks like.

Welcome to the new norm, where government spending runs parallel to the numbers of stars discovered in a single galaxy.

Silver inventories shrinking as many banks refuse to supply metal for buyers

The silver train is leaving the station, and after months of manipulated pressure to keep prices down, the metal has made a strong comeback of over $5 in just the past month.  In fact, the pressure is becoming so great, banks such as Scotiabank are begging customers NOT to request delivery of physical silver, as the start reality is, many don't have the very assets they are selling.

Below is a video of a recent transaction for investors to by physical silver, and Scotiabank trying desperately to tell the brokers not to buy physcial silver, and that it is a bad investment for them.

In a recent interview with investor Jim Rogers, the billionaire commodities king believes that the Fed and Ben Bernanke are already pumping money into the system through and unannounced QE3, and this will lead both gold and silver to astronomical levels in the coming month.

The silver train is now leaving the station, and sadly, for all those people who tried to catch a falling knife, and hope silver dropped to $20 an ounce, your time for the deal of a the century at $27 is now long gone.

SNAP: June foodstamp applications increase three times more than Americans finding a job

In the 1920's, President Calvin Coolidge uttered the phrase, the business of Americ is business.  Nearly 100 years later, that doctrine has changed for the American people as the new business of America is foodstamps.

In June, foodstamp applications came in three times greater than the number of Americans who found jobs.

June saw a new surge in those Americans living in poverty and thus eligible for foodstamps, with 173,600 new entrants into the system, bringing the total to a new all time high of 46.670 million and once again rising fast. Furthermore, with subsequent emergency events affecting the heartland due to the drought, the administration has made sure even more Americans will be eligible going forward. As a result expect the July and August numbers to promptly surpass 47 million on their way to the psychological resistance level of 50 million. Indicatively, the 173,600 increase in Foodstamps recipients in June was three times greater than Americans finding jobs (64,000, most of which part-time) according to the BLS. - Zerohedge

And unfortunately, the unregulated food stamp and EBT programs continue to lead to waste, fraud, and massive losses to the taxpayers.  Recently, a thrown away receipt by a food stamp recipient shows that the program is being used in many cases to fund luxury items, and not the intended healthy food and meal necessities of those on lower incomes.

The business of America is now welfare in the 21st century, and the trends are not slowing down.  At the current rate, perhaps within the next 20 years, 90% of all Americans will be on the government dole in some capacity, and the nanny state will be complete.

Unions try to portray themselves as nice guys with hug-a-thug booth at DNC

In a failed attempt to make unions look mainstream for Americans and American labor today, the AFL-CIO put together a Hug-A-Union Thug booth at the Democratic National Convention (DNC), in an attempt to spin their recent run of violence and failures in the Wisconsin and other states arouind the country.

In Charlotte, people will be asked to “hug a union thug” at a CarolinaFest booth sponsored by the North Carolina State AFL-CIO the day before the Democratic National Convention officially begins. Also in honor of Monday, videos are being posted online thanking workers, while actors and athletes will use Twitter to express support for union rights.

The effort comes as labor has seen increased attacks from Republican-controlled state legislatures and governors since the 2010 elections. Unions were unsuccessful in their attempt earlier this summer to oust Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) after he pushed through legislation that curbed some public workers’ collective bargaining rights. - The Hill
Unions have a long history in America, and just as wide an evolution.  During the Samuel Gompers era of the 1880's and 90's, unions were vital in standing up for worker rights against the brutal slave tactics of Rockefeller and other corporate leaders.  As time moved forward, unions began to evolve into political machines, running such cities as New York (Tammany Hall) and Chicago (Daily Machine).

During the Great Depression, unions became associated with Communism and the Communist party, as depicted in literature such as In Dubious Battle by John Steinbeck.

Moving into the 1960's and 70's, unions began to take on a darker persona with their affiliations with organized crime, and politics.  The Jimmy Hoffa incident was a prime example of the ultimate goals of union leadership, which is money and political power.

In this decade, unions have become a stigma in the eyes of many Americans, especially during a time of massive unemployment since the credit crash of 2008.  The childish antics of union workers and teachers in Wisconsin, which led to millions of dollars worth of damage to public buildings, shows the lengths that unions will go to force taxpayers to pay massive salaries and benefits, even while they lose their homes and barely sustain a living in an era of high unemployment.

The Hug a Union Thug booth created at the 2012 DNC is not only a farce, but an open slap in the face to those who see unions more as thieves and robbers of economic and fiscal growth, than as simple workers who want to stand together against the power of corporate and government control over money and jobs.

National Empty Chair day goes viral as satire backfires on Democrats

When the esteemed and sage words of conservative icon Clint Eastwood were taken as a joke by the Democratic left and progessive activists, little did they know that the off the cuff stunt by the former Mayor of Carmel would quickly come back to haunt them.  Within days, a fervor arose in the social blogosphere which led to the creation of National Empty Chair Day, and the satirical actions by Eastwood quickly spread into a frenzy where President Obama became the absolute butt of millions of jokes by people around the country.

Even when the President tried to get into the joke by sitting in the Presidential chair surrounded by his cabinet, Americans quickly took the photo and airbrushed it into a massive joke.

The power of a slogan, or a symbol can, and has ushered men into the Oval office, or a legacy of ridicule.  From Michael Dukakis's 'Wheres the beef', to Barack Obama's 'Hope and Change', the rallying cry of the 2012 elections has now been set, and everytime the President speaks, it will be followed by an Empty Chair response.
