“History, in general, only informs us of what bad government is.”  This is a quote attributed to Thomas Jefferson, the man who penned our Declaration of Independence. What examples of bad government did history offer in the second half of the 18th century? The answers are countless, however there are two forms of government that, when inspected, help us understand our own.

Democracy in its purest form takes a vote of the people and makes it law. A historical example of a democracy is the ancient Greek city-state of Athens.  Continue reading “Jefferson on Government”

I was just contacted via email by the Unemployed States of America.

Our site, From the Trenches World Report, is at present scaring the hell out of our enemies.  Since it was put up it is growing exponentially.  Every Tom, Dick, and Freddie is trying to hijack our movement.  This site is effective because it belongs to all of us.  There is no power structure other than that that is created by the resisters who come here to organize individual projects.

Republicans are coming under fire after shooting down HR 6419, the unemployment extension, which would have extended benefits for Tiers 1-4.  The legislation would have cost $12.5 billion.  The Republicans used as their excuse that the legislation is not funded.  Critics have pointed out that there is $246 billion in unspent stimulus funds sitting in reserve.

About one hundred years ago our grandfathers formed labor unions in order to obtain fair compensation for their labor.  Using this strategy, they succeeded.  We have been raised to believe that we have a representative government and if enough of us complain about a single issue, that issue will be resolved to our satisfaction to stop the complaints.

As a 99er, have you ever asked yourself, why me, why us?  The majority of 99ers are between the ages of 40 and 65.  This is why we have been singled out to be attacked.  Continue reading “99ers and Tier 5 Unemployment Extension- Tier 5 Join the American 99er’s Union”

India has the fastest growing middle class in the world and if the truth be told, China is number one in industry.  And how did this come to be?  A string of traitors beginning with Lyndon Johnson and continuing through every presidency to the present has twisted and manipulated the Commerce Clause in our Constitution to give the illusion of legitimacy to the treasonous, anti-American laws that they have caused to be passed; CAFTA, NAFTA, and GATT, to name a few.  These laws have sent what is our property to other countries all over the world.

Two million more unemployed are set to lose their benefits on November 30th.  Apparently Nancy Pelosi is going to reintroduce the unemployment legislation in the Congress.  It is predicted that it will be passed by the Congress but will face an uphill battle in the Senate.  This lame duck session is turning out to be nothing more than political grandstanding.

When the propagandists talk about the unemployment extension they do so with an “Oh well” attitude.  Continue reading “Tier 5 Unemployed Hoping Legislation makes it Past the Senate”

Throughout history when lesser armies have defeated their greater counterparts, it has been through unconventional methods and weaponry.  Hannibal took elephants through the Alps and brought the Romans to their knees.  The Mongol hordes, through their unconventional field strategies, annihilated all who tried to stand against them.  In modern times America defeated Japan with two unconventional bombs.

We as 99ers have been fighting our foes using conventional tactics and getting nowhere.  We recently put up a page on this site called Think Tank and I have already seen unconventional tactics that I truly believe can cause an effect. Continue reading “Unconventional Tactics”

HR 6419, the emergency extension bill that would have extended benefits for the long term unemployed, failed yesterday.  It seems that a Tier 5 for the 99ers is something that is just not going to be.  Since the unemployment act was signed into law in 1935, never in the 75 years since, has unemployment been denied to American workers when the unemployment rate was above 8%.

Not since the Great Depression have so many people been put out of work as were by this financial crisis.  Continue reading “Tier 5 Unemployed No Tier 5”

Ex-Governor Jesse Ventura, in an interview with syndicated radio talk show host Alex Jones, stated that he would be airing the death bed confession made by the individual who killed President John F. Kennedy.  The confession is due to air tonight on the series Conspiracy Theory on TruTV network at 10:00 pm EST.  Governor Ventura was putting the word out over the radio station as he said he believes the mainstream media will refuse to report on the event.

From the beginning after President Kennedy’s assassination, many have believed that the scenario put forth to explain the event by the Warren Commission did not add up.  Continue reading “John F. Kennedy’s Assassin Makes Death Bed Confession”

When Ronald Regan became president, he introduced “Trickle Down Economics” and said we all need to tighten our belts a little.  Don’t you love it when a rich man tells you need to live with less?  These thieves have stolen us blind and accomplished the greatest transfer of wealth from the poor to the rich in the history of this planet.  And now that they have stolen their pile of gold, they want to stop the theft of gold.

It’s kind of like two people playing black jack.  When you start the game you agree that every time the deck runs out the deal will transfer. <!–more–> You further say that there will be a minimal bet of ten dollars per hand.  However, after the first deck is dealt and one person has accumulated more money, as the dealer has the odds in his or her favor, it is the next person’s turn to deal.  Now the person who has won more money says, “These rules aren’t fair, I want to change them.  From now on the minimum bet is one dollar until it is my turn to deal again.”

Every day I hear the moneyed people putting forth this very scenario.  I guess it’s about time to reach across and grab them by the hair of the head, slam their face into the table, and take all the money.  All the rich people out there need to realize that the poor outnumber the rich and they have what they have only through our tolerance.

The entrepreneur who made his or her money through honest endeavor is few and far between and would be the only exception.  Most who have large sums of money have gotten it through lying, cheating, and swindling, and deserve nothing more than to have it taken away and be made to live poor for the rest of their days.

From 1980 through 2005 more than 4/5 of the total increase in American incomes went to the richest 1%.  So those of you out there making $500,000 per year and defending the rich because you believe yourselves to be among them had better wake up.  Because the true rich want to take everything you have as sure as they have already taken what was the 99ers.

CEOs of the largest American companies earned an average of 42 times as much as the average worker in 1980.  In 2001 the CEOs’ earnings were 531 times as much as the average worker.  Do you think they are going to stop there?  This country has become nothing more than another banana republic.

The CEOs are paid off for eliminating American jobs and sending them overseas.  And who pays their big bonuses?…the American taxpayers.  So all of you people out there making five to seven hundred thousand dollars per year keep making the filthy rich the center of your hero worship.  Your job is next.

This is the worst recession in 60 years and all our so called representatives can talk about is tax cuts for the top 2%.  The top 1% in this country owns more national wealth than the bottom 90%.  And all our so called representatives can talk about is tax cuts for the top 2%.

Bankers in this country go to foreign countries and make micro loans to their citizens to start small businesses.  I guess that’s because the people in third world countries don’t have to worry about their credit reports.  Ask yourself, how many small businesses could have been started in this country had the traitors Henry Paulson and Timothy Geithner taken the billions they gave to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, that just disappeared, and made micro loans to those who had become unemployed?  But the international corporate mafia would never allow it, as it is their stated goal to destroy this country and kill 90% of us.  I guess if you exclude the top 2% that leaves 8% that was once the middle class.  So do you think you’ll make the grade?  If not, you better decide who your enemy is, the top 2% or the poor.

I get thoroughly disgusted with the upper middle class and lower rich when I see them turning their backs on their brethren and sisteren and licking the feet of the filthy rich as they think they are among them.  I have news for all of them.  The filthy rich have nothing but contempt for anyone with less money, hell, they eat their own.  Before this whole thing is over they will laugh at all of us as our children’s bloated, starving bodies lie in the streets with flies buzzing around their eyes.

When those who have sided with the filthy rich get their comeuppance and turn to us for compassion, let them know they can expect nothing more than our contempt.  And every one of you out there counting your money and thinking you are better than other people, remember my words, only the top 2% are slated to be rich forever, and your job is next.

When one looks at the massive amount of spending done by the elected representatives of the federal government on unpopular wars and unpopular projects, one might ask oneself, “By what authority do these people, some elected not even by popular majority, tax us against our will to fund projects which we do not support?”

Article 1 Section 8 of the U.S. constitution states in part:

“The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States; but all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States;”

Two District Attorneys in California have directed their police agencies to go to the airports.  They have been told if they observe any TSA agent touching or fondling any passenger in a way that would violate the law they are to arrest and detain them.   After which these DAs are saying the agents will be charged with a misdemeanor if the hands are on the outside of the clothes or a felony if the hands go inside the clothes.  It is good to see law enforcement doing their job.

It is the opinion of many, including myself, that the naked body scanners and enhanced pat downs serve no other purpose than to indoctrinate the citizenry to accept the most outrageous invasions of their privacy.  The next logical step will be for a subsidiary of TSA to start operating in shopping malls and other public venues.

President Obama met yesterday with Hispanic lawmakers to discuss the Dream Act, which would grant amnesty to the children of illegal aliens who have obtained an education, paid for with American tax dollars.  It is sure good to know Barry is looking out for his people.

It gets better.  The state of California is being sued by out of state college students for giving illegal aliens subsidies and tuition that the American citizens from other states cannot get. 

Last week the Queen of England got a Facebook Account.  Every network propagandist reported it and every commentator commented on it.  Oh what a wonderful thing.  Now all of her subjects around the world can log on and read the dribble she writes.  Every American should feel proud to live under the rule of our Queen mother.

But wait a minute…didn’t we whip the British and throw their sorry arses out of our country along with their Tory supporters?  Yeah, didn’t we call that…what was it?…oh yeah, the American Revolution.

Twenty million unemployed, two wars, and a destroyed economy, and what are the priorities of the lame duck congress? …an extension of the Bush Tax Cuts, the Dream Act which would give amnesty to the illegals, and Don’t Ask Don’t Tell which will allow gays to serve openly in the military.  I also believe they will be voting for an across the board raise for all federal employees.

It is amazing how easy it is to divide Americans against one another. In a situation as seemingly innocent as elementary school children playing sports, otherwise rational people will run onto the field and beat the hell out of one another over a bad call. I think our citizenry would have liked the Roman Coliseum.
I suppose our natural adversarial, genetic makeup is responsible for far too many of us having failed to realize that left-right paradigm is nothing more than a tool used by the international corporate mafia to divide us against one another. The whole concept is actually quite brilliant in its simplicity. Continue reading “Left-Right Paradigm”

The current economic situation we find ourselves in did not come to be by accident.  The war we find ourselves in is being waged upon us without declaration.  When the international corporate mafia set out to destroy our country and take away our livelihood they did so with $22 trillion and a plan in hand.

A basic rule of war is to divide and conquer.  It was about fifteen years ago that I first heard the statement, “America does not have a culture, it is a collection of distinctly discernable cultures from all over the world.”  This is propaganda and it is a lie.

“If you continue to extend people’s unemployment benefits do you discourage them from going out and looking for and finding work?  Congress needs to answer that question quickly before federally funded extended unemployment benefits expire on November 30th.” A Fox Business reporter made this statement as a prelude to an interview with Heidi Shierholz, an economist with the Economic Policy Institute.

Ms. Shierholz stated the following, “You know there is some evidence in the economic literature that unemployment insurance benefits do actually increase the time it takes you to take another job a little bit, but the key is it’s just a little bit.  And when we’re in an environment like this one, where there are literally 5 unemployed workers for every available job, that question is moot.  Right now the reason people aren’t working is because jobs aren’t available to them.  So cutting off unemployment insurance benefits, it will make workers more desperate to find work, but it’s not going to make them more likely to find work.  The jobs are not yet out there.”

Well it seems that the top 2% earners are going to get their extension of the Bush tax cuts.  According to the mainstream propagandists this is what the American people want more than anything.   Oh yes, and we also want more tax cuts for businesses.  Thank God that the filthy rich are not going to have to be tightening their belts around their size 55 waists.

Isn’t it funny how the dominant issue went from jobs, jobs, jobs, to tax cuts, tax cuts, tax cuts overnight?  But then this is a funny country we are living in today.  Of course all these tax cuts will have to be paid for.  So who is going to have to cough up the cash?  Well to begin with, if you still own a car you are going to get to pay 15 cents more per gallon for your gasoline.  That is on top of the $4.00 per gallon you will be paying as a result of rising oil prices.

Students in London are rioting in response to their government’s plans to double and in some cases triple the cost of tuition.  They stormed the building that houses the conservative branch of their government.  On top of the tuition hike their government is planning on raising taxes and cutting 40% of their spending.  That sounds kind of familiar.

Nearly every propagandist who reported on the riots asserted the possibility that we would see the same sort of riots here when the new congress cuts spending and entitlement programs.  England is a neo-socialist society which is to say that their government is as a nanny to them in ordering their lives from the cradle to the grave.  They are also unarmed.
