Standard and Poor’s dropped the US credit rating to AA+ yesterday.  So who is Standard and Poor’s?  Well they, along with Moody’s and Fitch are the fraudulent slime bags that gave AAA ratings to the bad derivatives that were sold to our 401K pension funds which we lost as a result.

They also rated AAA many more bad derivatives that were insured by AIG, which we had to bail out, in essence pay the claims on, when the loans went bust.

They are the very same S&P that was paid by Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae to give the AAA rating to the bad derivatives which were packaged and sold.

117,000 new jobs were created in the private sector in July, the unemployment rate falls from 9.2% to 9.1%.  We are living in a world of pure propaganda wherein the truth has been completely discounted.  So how could the unemployment rate possibly have dropped considering the millions of new filings for unemployment this year?  Our so called government just did another one of their surveys and determined that 193,000 of us quit looking for work.

There is apparently some illusion that says that people who once made between $50,000 and $250,000 a year have decided to retire on a welfare check and food stamps.  I don’t know how it is where you live but here where I’m at, only illegal aliens get welfare checks.  If you can speak English you are automatically disqualified.

I find myself a little down today as the stock market plunged over 500 points yesterday and gold went down a little too.  What am I saying?  This shit doesn’t have a thing to do with me.  I don’t have any stocks and I sure as hell don’t have any gold.  But then again I am stock as my birth certificate is traded on the world market daily.  I wonder if I am worth less, I don’t feel worthless, but I guess equity is in the eye of the beholder.

Personally I have to look at this drop in the stock market for what it is and that is another great big chunk of our resources and wealth heading out of our country.  See the stock market is nothing more than a big money pump.  It sucks our wealth and resources in one side through elimination of our jobs and liquidation of our property, and then blows it out the other side to offshore accounts where the corporate profits are kept.

“It’s all about jobs.”  “We’ve got to address the issue of jobs.”  “The economy isn’t going to get any better until we get jobs.”  How long are we going to let them get away with playing this same loop over and over again as they are wiping us out?  You know what this “Jobs, Jobs” crap is going to turn into next week?  “We need to further cut taxes for the rich…..for jobs.”  “We need to send billions more in stimulus to the local road construction businesses owned by the Masons……for jobs”

Have you ever seen any of these people out of work?  I haven’t.  Do you realize that a twenty mile stretch of road now represents a life-long career to those receiving the government contracts, to do the repairs on the roads, that we already pay the states to take care of through gas taxes?  A hundred thousand of us could retire on the money spent on those million signs that say, “Your tax dollars at work.”  The people who orchestrated this little scam should be rounded up and put in a federal prison.

The traitors in DC have finished with their works of treason and will now head to their home districts and resorts around the world for some well deserved rest and relaxation.  Never in the history of the world has such treason for reward existed in a society that was armed.  People of the United States give new meaning to the word tolerance and we are going to be punished for our lack of diligence in allowing a soviet coup d’état in our Congress.

The Supreme Soviet of 12 and the Premier Obama are getting ready to show we the people what a totalitarian communistic military dictatorship looks like.  They have already plugged in internet censorship to break our communication and complete control over the mainstream media outlets to silence our voices to the world.

Rep. Ron Paul on Monday introduced legislation that would lower the federal government’s debt by canceling the roughly $1.6 trillion in debt held by the Federal Reserve.

Paul has argued for the last few weeks that the idea represents a quick way to make the growing fiscal crisis more manageable. Under his bill, H.R. 2768, the $1.6 trillion that the Treasury owes to the Federal Reserve would disappear.

The great compromise has been made in the Congress.  Today it will go to the Senate and after it is affirmed there, it will be signed into law.  There are a hundred different opinions entangled in speculation as to what the effects will be and the American people seem to be failing to see the forest for the trees.

There is only one decisive thing that is occurring.  We are seeing key parts to our Constitution being repealed without there being a Constitutional Convention, as required under the laws contained therein.  This is blatant subversion and can be described as nothing short of an attempted coup d’etat.

The Republiscums and Demorats are compromising all over one another in a frantic race to reaffirm the status quo before the August 2nd deadline.  One of the reported points of compromise is a 12 person commission made up of 12 Congressmen who will lay out future spending cuts that, if not enacted, will trigger an across the board cut of 1%.

Well I guess as long as these 12 Congressmen do not screw the people in their home states, they are free to do to the rest of the people in the rest of the states whatever they please without consequence as only the people in their states can vote them out.

Once a month I write an article on the Fukushima Power Plant in an effort to keep the subject from being completely removed from reality.  We will all remember just a couple of months ago there were stories in the mainstream media in reference to nuclear power plants in Nebraska that were posing a threat because of flooding.  So what ever happened with that?

It seems all mention of nuclear power plants of any and all kinds has been completely removed from the mainstream news.  This news blackout can be directly attributed to the international nuclear industry and the enormous wealth and power it represents.  There has not been a word in the mainstream in reference to the multi-billion dollar projects involving the building of new power plants in the U.S that were in the spotlight in the aftermath of Fukushima.

Obama advisers are saying Al Qaeda is on the ropes and that a six month intensified campaign could very well deliver a knockout blow.  Could this hype be designed to bolster the position of the industrial war complex in the debt negotiations?  The very thought that Al Qaeda is “on the ropes” is ludicrous.  How can they be when the United States is sending billions to Libya, Syria, Yemen, and Egypt to prop up and strengthen Al Qaeda?

Fifteen of our service members were killed in Iraq last month, marking a resurgence of violence in that country.  And I think we are going to see escalations in every country wherein we are currently engaged in war as an increase in fighting is the surest way to make the arguments necessary to stop any cuts in defense spending.

The three ring circus in Washington DC continues to put on the greatest show on earth.  We have been told everything from “Nothing will happen on the second of August if the debt ceiling isn’t raised” to “It will not only be the end of the world but” according to Nancy Pelosi, “the universe will be destroyed.”

The only one speaking with an ounce of credibility is Ron Paul.  He is saying we are bankrupt and have in reality been for a long time and that basically we are all pretty much screwed.
