Is It Any Wonder The Conservatives (those wanting to cut taxes & spending and stick to the Constitution) Threw Boehner Out?

October 27, 2015

Isn’t it grand? Outgoing Speaker of the House has one last gift for all of us. Again behind closed doors Boehner & Obama are making deals to keep the power going and the money flowing to the government elites and power-brokers on K-Street & Wall Street. This time the deal they’re crafting will get them past the 2016 election before they have to ask/get another debt ceiling increase.Obama, Boner hugfest

This is why Boner had to go! This has always been how Boehner operates. He can’t get enough support from his own party (or specifically the conservative members of the GOP) for more big-government spending and concessions to Obama, but he can always bring enough Democrats on board to do Obama’s bidding and this last budget deal is no different.

And what I’ve heard about the budget is TERRIBLE! You may have heard that Social Security Disability was on track to go broke by 2016 (hello, just a few months away!), so what did they do? They took money out of the still solvent Old Age & Survivors Trust Fund -which every working person pays into EVERY month and will in this new budget deal, transfer it to the Social Security Disability which is essentially broke because of all the fraud and working able people who are receiving benefits they shouldn’t. This is why there will be not increase in everyone’s monthly SSI checks next year. Of course your Medicare portion will go up. This budget was concocted in some backroom and your representatives did not even know about it or have a say. How do you like that? This is hopefully Boehner’s final  middle finger to everyone. Of course he’s got some big-paying job lined up where he’ll make far more than he did as Speaker. Sickening is all I can say!

Will Paul Ryan be any different? Probably not, but we’ll see. And I hope they don’t give up on getting rid of Mitch McConnell who is just as bad as Boehner.

China & Japan Worry Over US Default, Banks Stuff ATMs Hoping to Avoid Bank Runs & Govt Skams Run Wild

October 7, 2013

Kicking the can down the road is catching up with us. It won’t take much to send us over the edge and while Nobama loves to blame the Republicans (and visa versa) for the government shut-down, the truth is the government can’t shut down! Too many people and too many other countries are hooked on the U.S. government teat.

What if it were empty?

What if it were empty?

According to ZeroHedge some US banks fearing default are stuffing their ATM machines with 20-30% more cash than usual in case panicked customers decide to withdraw funds en masse. But Obama insists there will be no deal on the debt ceiling.

This is a dangerous game of chicken. European stock markets are down and China has weighed in saying Washington politicians need to learn lessons from history referring to the US credit rating downgrade 2 years ago. But a further look back in history would tell them that no fiat currency, not a single one has ever survived.

Foreign countries’ central banks have have been dumping US debt as fast as they can for fear of when the music stops. This is why any mention of the the Fed ‘tapering’ was a joke. The Fed is the only customer for the US treasury bonds, thus the $85 billion/month of printing.

And yet our politicians just cannot reduce spending. Every single program and give-away is vital. 60 Minutes opines that the Federal Disability program (SSD) may be the first of many federal entitlements to go broke. The budget last year ($135Billion) was more than the Dept of Homeland Security, the Dept of Justice and the Dept of Labor combined. Yet the federal statute reads very clearly,

“If there is any job in the economy you can perform, you are not eligible for disability.”

Watch this and then tell me who is more despicable, the federal bureaucrats who fail to oversee this program or the lawyers who make a nice living (a billion paid to attorneys last year) gaming the system all at the expense of the taxpayer?

The Biggest Lie Being Told is That We Are About To Default on Our Debt. Obama is Laying the Groundwork to Eliminate the Debt Ceiling Entirely Giving Them Unchecked Spending Capacity

October 4, 2013

The federal government is NOT about to default on our debts. The incoming revenue every month exceeds our monthly obligations. We have enough to meet our obligations!! Obama, stretch Pelosi and others on the left are trying to scare people that the “full faith & backing” of the USA is at risk and failing to raise the debt ceiling will spell disaster for the US and global economy.

4 more Pinocchios (liar, liar, pants on fire) for Obama

They’ll have us believe that seniors will not receive SS checks, our military will not get paid, veteran’s benefits won’t be paid, and federal workers won’t get paid (until after the crisis passes, that is), the interest on our debt will not be paid, student loan money to needy students won’t be there, our recovering economy will crash and countries around the world will fall with us.

And he’s already conditioned the GOP and the public with his endless “If Congress won’t act, I will” pronouncements so the spineless Speaker John Boehner, who with no protest from low-information voters (half of us?) will likely allow him to grab even more power. This will be the biggest slam to the US Constitution imaginable!

This would represent the end of the separation of powers, checks & balances, our constitutional republic all usurped by our imperial president, King Obama.

But what will we do? I recommend impeachment, but not likely with the panty-waists in the House and Obama-bots in the Senate, so a good fall-back (though a long-term endeavor) is The Liberty Amendments:  Restoring the American Republic by Mark Levin.libertyamendmentslarge He has some solid solutions to where we find ourselves in this post-Constitutional America. To learn more about his suggested amendments and about the Constitution, the Founders & their intentions and motivations for long-lasting liberty listen to Levin’s daily FREE podcast.

Will China Take Our Resource-Rich Land & Our Reserve Currency Status In Exchange For Our Debt?

January 24, 2013

China is concerned (apparently more so than our own Congress) that the US cannot make good on its debts. They have recently and publicly for the first time, called for a new reserve currency though we already know of numerous direct trade agreements with many other countries eliminating the use of the US dollar. Check this out from Bill Holter at Miles Franklin to see the ramifications of the US losing the privilege of issuing the worlds’ reserve currency.

china dragon vs eagleHow will our debt be paid? It won’t be through a miniscule debt reduction over ten years if or when the Senate gets around to passing a budget. It won’t be by lowering the Social Security eligibility age a few years. It won’t be though taxation, no matter how high.

The Boston Globe reports dozens of Chinese companies are putting down roots in Detroit. We don’t have to exchange US debt held by China, Detroit is a fire sale! In addition these Chinese companies are hiring veteran engineers and designers in an effort to soak up the talent and expertise of domestic automakers and their suppliers.

According to Jerome Corsi at World Net Daily, the Bank of China, China’s central bank, continues to advance a plan to convert China’s holdings of U.S. debt into equity owned by China in the U.S. This started in 2009 after our last economic meltdown. Jerome Corsi asks

“Could real estate on American soil owned by China be set up as “development zones” in which the communist nation could establish Chinese-owned businesses and bring in its citizens to the U.S. to work?”

Obviously this plan has gained a lot more urgency on China’s part on day fifteen of the US government shutdown coupled with yet another debt ceiling ‘crisis’ before us. Would Obama sell us down the proverbial river? To get the monkey off our back? The answer is YES! In a heartbeat –in a New York minute, like an inner city tenement house on fire!

Again from Corsi, the Obama administration, under the plan, would grant a financial guarantee as an inducement for China to convert U.S. debt into Chinese direct equity investment. China would take ownership of successful U.S. corporations, potentially profitable infrastructure projects and high-value U.S. real estate.

Our ineffective, dishonest, self-serving leaders in Congress and the White House are setting up a very grim future for America and Americans.

Bob’s Gotta It Right on The Debt Ceiling & Politicians

July 11, 2011

Bob’s of the opinion is that Democrats are just as bad as Republicans -all they want is another credit card.

“It doesn’t matter who gets elected it’s like having a pissing contest with a giraffe -you (we) can’t win. When a politician gets elected all they care about is getting re-elected!”

And we’ll see if he’s right pretty soon here on this debt ceiling thing. If the Republicans cave we’re toast. They’ve never had as good a position as they do now to make a difference if that’s what they really want to do. So let’s see who blinks.

What About Tax Reform?

June 1, 2011

So much blather about the debt ceiling, but without spending cuts and major TAX REFORM that’s all it is -talk. This bears repeating until the nimrods in Washington get it. There are a lot of reasons (power, greed and favoritism to name a few) for them not to get it, so it’s up to us. We will never have any real economic recovery without tax reform.

Here’s what some people like about the FairTax:

  • Yo – drug dealers and politicians paying their fair share? Revolutionary!
  • Politicians like to talk about redistributing the wealth, I like talking about redistributing the power.
  • Hey, that full paycheck looks good on you!
  • It will eliminate all taxation for the poor via the prebate.
  • Under the Fair Tax I could buy you a drink and do your taxes at the same time.
  • Level the playing field. Everyone is a consumer. Everyone is a taxpayer.
  • Not even the politicians can get out of paying under the FairTax.
  • Would you like to keep your entire paycheck and pay taxes when you want to?
  • How would you like to have FICA, Medicare & Federal Tax withholding put back into every payday?
  • Want to hear that rushing-wind sound of jobs coming back to America?
  • The Fair Tax…eliminates the underground economy.
  • I love it. Every international tourist or visitor contributes to our economy!
  • FairTax: A plan even Charlie Rangel can understand!
  • Fair and Simple.

Support H.R. 25 and ask your representatives to too! Be sure to see my Tax Reform Category (on the right side panel) to raise your tax reform IQ!

Dead or Alive When Calling Congress?

April 25, 2011

Do try this at home boys and girls and let me know if you get a real, live, concerned person on the answering end, or get a “leave your name, phone and address bla-bla-bla” recording. And take note which party is listening to your concerns. I’m not taking sides here. I’m just making a point.

Operators are standing by

Congress will be debating, negotiating and voting on raising the debt ceiling. And apparently it’s a mighty tall building because that ceiling keeps getting further and further away!

This is my favorite link for contacting our US Congress. And I just used it to encourage those trying to rein in the debt not to be co-opted by the same old tactics. The American people are with you. Stick to your guns and do what we elected you to do! (except of course, Hawaii’s governor, Mr. Abercrombie).

– But according to Mr. Obama in regard to the debt:

“Republicans want to turn America in a radical new direction, a dark place for the poor and middle class.”

“And somebody’s grandparents wouldn’t be able to afford nursing home care”

“They wanna give people like me a $200,000 tax break that’s paid for by asking 33 seniors each to pay $6,000 more in health care costs. That’s not right. And it’s not gonna happen as long as I’m president.”

Well, be careful what you wish for Mr. President. I mean seriously, don’t you think Paul Ryan or John Boehner or Eric Cantor and any of the rest in Congress who are trying to save this country financially have children, grandparents or even a heart?

Let’s get real. We need to call bull-crap when we hear this. Don’t let them get away with it again and again and again. Please use this handy link, call or email Speaker Boehner and others and let the rest of them know what you think. We have to get serious about real debt reduction or there won’t be any Medicare or Social Security to save.

Aloha, Mikie
