12 Reasons Americans Are Incredibly Angry About The State Of The U.S. Economy

The U.S. economy is experiencing structural failure, and the American people are angry. They want answers. They want someone to fix things. They want things to go back to the way they used to be.

But that isn't going to happen. Once the American people truly start realizing that, the anger that will erupt will dwarf what we are seeing now (Not that they aren't already incredibly steamed).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The problem is simple.

The American revolution not only changed politics, it changed economics. At that time, nations borrowed money from private banks at interest to put into circulation. That meant that from the first moment the public currency was issued, more money was owed to the private banks than was actually in existence. This placed the civil population and indeed the civil government under the control of the private bankers. This in turn led to massive unemployment and poverty, as Ben Franklin witnessed as the colonies' ambassador to the court of King George III.

When the United States was created, the Founding Fathers took the revolutionary step of having the government create its own currency, issued interest free for the public to use. The dollar was legally defined as a weight measure of silver. This simple system allowed the American society to prosper quickly, and word began to spread to other nations that there was a rival economic system that seemed to work far better for the people than the Bank of England (i.e. the Rothschild) system.

So the European banking clans, to protect their wealth and privilege, conspired to bring about the end of the American government-issued monetary system. First they goaded King George III into the war of 1812. When that failed to bring down the US monetary system the bankers changed tactics and resorted to bribing the entire US Congress and Presidents into supporting the creation of private central banks.

In short, the nation has been re-enslaved to the very banking evils the Founding Fathers fought a war to remove from these shores. This has happened three times, and all three times the nation has been brought to the edge of financial ruin while the bankers poured millions and now billions in bonuses into their pockets.

There have been men of real courage in the White House who tried to save the nation from the greedy bastards; those purveyors of pretty printed pieces of paper we are brainwashed into confusing with actual money. Andrew Jackson was almost assassinated after shutting down one of the previous private central banks. Abraham Lincoln's greenbacks, a direct challenge to the bankers' control over the union, were removed from circulation as soon as Lincoln was dead. John F. Kennedy was assassinated only 5 months after signing Executive Order 11110, which issued a new government currency, the "US Note" allowing Americans to avoid the Federal Reserve system entirely. Kennedy's US Notes were removed from circulation as soon as he was dead, and John J. McCloy, a banking President, was put on the Warren Commission to ensure that the official cover story of a crazed lone nut assassin became the official legend.

Americans are angry because they are waking up to the realization that the banking system forced on them by the present government is the very same system the Founders of this nation fought a war to free us all from. The cries for loyalty and obedience coming from Washington DC are demanding loyalty to a system of enslavement. No matter how hard one works or sacrifices, one still ends up with a government that steals from the poor to give to the rich.

The ghosts of the Founders look down on us and shake their heads in shame and wonder why they wasted so much time, money and blood only to have later generations throw it all away for iPods and American Idol.

Strategies for Revolutionaries: Break the TV addiction -

Numerous institutions, traditions and prejudices function as modes of oppression and prevent us from collectively addressing the tragedy of the commons. Acts of legislation arbitrarily prohibit and criminalize our actions, schools indoctrinate us with a tacit deference to authority, and our interpersonal relationships are prone to crystalizing vicious spirals of interaction. [...] In a world where soldiers laugh after murdering children, a president brands war as peace, a ‘recovered hero’ resurrects his father to try to sell shoes, and crucial scientific reviews are hollow whitewashes, we’re obviously in need of a new set of values. And one the most effective means of preventing us from collectively making these changes is our addiction to TV.

Become a Sovereign Individual You don't need the state's permission

The history of ethics has been a history of exploitation. From time immemorial, individuals were set apart into two groups: those that must obey the rules, and those that need not. The people must observe ethics and morals, while rulers not.

The ethics that you and I must observe correctly advocates that one should not steal the property of others, should not murder, and should not force others to do something against their will.

But note that those ethical rules do not apply to government – the government takes your money, calls it "democratic taxes," and presto! – it is now authorized to steal.

Civil War Looms as Kyrgyzstan Riots Grow

Normalcy is no easy thing in Kyrgyzstan, and despite Bakiyev being long gone the protesters have remained on the streets of the capital of Bishkek, seizing property from the city’s ethnic minorities and generally spreading mayhem.

Perhaps an even bigger issue long term is that the rural southern portion of the nation, long loyal to Bakiyev, still hasn’t accepted the new government’s control. In Jalal Abat, the local governor Faizullah Rakhmanov held a rally of some 1,000 Bakiyev supporters, promising they would soon march north against the capital and restore Bakiyev to power.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder just to what degree the new Kyrgystani government is going to plead to Russia to assist it in restoring order here.

US Vows New Sanctions Against Iran in ‘Weeks’

Much as they did several times last week, and several times the week before that, and indeed innumerable times this year, last year, and the year before that, the US today vowed that there would be new sanctions against Iran in a matter of weeks.

This time the pledge came in the form of comments by House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D – MD) who promised that the United States would act “sooner, rather than later” in more harsh sanctions against Iran for its civilian nuclear program.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to Steny Hoyer: you know full well that the US is not going to get the sanctions at the UN level against Iran, so what is next?

Blockading the Gulf, which will be (rightly) interpreted as an act of war, a war which may well have Russia and China enter on the part of Iran?

US official: Iran military strike 'off the table'

The U.S. has ruled out a military strike against Iran's nuclear program any time soon, hoping instead negotiations and United Nations sanctions will prevent the Middle East nation from developing nuclear weapons, a top U.S. defense department official said Wednesday.

"Military force is an option of last resort," Undersecretary of Defense for Policy Michele Flournoy said during a press briefing in Singapore. "It's off the table in the near term."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder if Israel has "gotten the memo" about this, and what it will do when it realizes it may well be on its own if it decides to go ahead and attack Iran, solo.

US US to launch secret 'space warplane'

Military space specialist Professor Roger Handberg, who is the chair of the Department of Political Science at the University of Central Florida in Orlando, told Space.com that the X-37B project may signify continued U.S. Air Force interest in a rapid response vehicle along the lines of the long-proposed space maneuver vehicle.

"From the perspective of international observers, especially in space-aspiring states such as China, the X-37B program just reinforces their view that the U.S. is pushing to gain first mover advantage in rapid response, including possible weaponization of space using this vehicle or a derivative," Handberg noted.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I think we can safely move from the characterization of this program from as a "possible" weaponization of space to a "definite" weaponization of space.

Districts warn of deeper teacher cuts

School districts around the country, forced to resort to drastic money-saving measures, are warning hundreds of thousands of teachers that their jobs may be eliminated in June.

The districts have no choice, they say, because their usual sources of revenue — state money and local property taxes — have been hit hard by the recession. In addition, federal stimulus money earmarked for education has been mostly used up this year.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These events may well signal the following, given how badly state economies are faring; the dissolution of teachers' unions, and the end to free compulsory education as this country has known it.

An MSNBC report suggests that the ‘birther’ debate may finally be coming to a head, as the Army will pursue a court martial of an officer who has refused to take orders from the Commander In Chief:

U.S. military officials tell NBC News that the U.S. Army will court martial a lieutenant colonel who refuses to deploy to Afghanistan because he considers orders from President Obama to be “illegal.”

Army doctor Lt. Col. Terry Lakin believes Obama does not meet the constitutional requirements to be president and commander-in-chief, because he believes (incorrectly) that Obama wasn’t born in the United States.

A prominent think-tank that's often critical of government spending policies says Canadian families spend more than two-fifths of their total income on taxes.

That's up from 1981 when taxes accounted for 40.8 per cent of a family's income, or 33.5 per cent in 1961 when the Fraser Institute first compiled the index.

Democracy is supposed to mean ‘government by the people’.

High-tech speed cameras which use satellites to track motorists on secret trial in Britain

Speed cameras which communicate with each other by satellite are being secretly tested on British roads.

The hi-tech devices can follow drivers’ progress for miles to calculate whether they have broken speed limits.

Combining number plate recognition technology with global positioning satellites, they can be set up in a network to monitor tens of thousands of cars over huge areas for the smallest breach.

Known as SpeedSpike, the system uses similar methods of recognition as the cameras which enforce the congestion charge in London, and allow two cameras to 'talk' to each other if a vehicle appears to have travelled too far in too short a space of time.

Britain facing further bitterly cold winters 'due to drop in solar winds'

The UK is facing a spate of cold winters as bitter as the last and surprisingly our Sun is to blame, according to a new study.

British researchers have discovered a link between low solar activity and unusually low winter temperatures in Europe.

They said at times of low solar activity the warm winds from the Atlantic may not reach Europe in winter. This is because they are blocked by the formation of giant bends in the jet stream.

And because the Sun is much less active now than in the last 90 years, the freezing cold weather could continue for many years to come.

The New York Times reports that Paulson personally made an estimated $3.7 billion in 2007 as a result of his hedge fund’s performance, and another $2 billion in 2008. The charge is that Goldman's vice-president Fabrice Tourre created a dud financial instrument packed with valueless sub-prime mortgages at the instruction of hedge fund client Paulson, sold it to investors knowing it was valueless, and then allowed Paulson to profit from the dud financial instrument.

NATO Troops Kill Four Afghan Students

Afghan government officials today confirmed that an overnight NATO shooting in the Khost Province left four students, one of them as young as 11 years old, dead. The Afghan Education Ministry confirmed that all four were students, but other reports suggest the eldest, an 18 year old, may have been working as a police officer as well.

NATO confirmed the shooting but was quick to insist that two of the children were (ahem...) “known insurgents” and the other two were (rolling eyes) “suspected insurgents.” Initial claims said the attack came at a “checkpoint” but later it was revealed the vehicle was on the open road and simply hadn’t stopped when a military convoy flashed its lights at them.

Dear Andrea Merkel: How much do Raul Hilberg and I owe you?

Dear Andrea Merkel,

I read in the news that your German government has fined Bishop Richard Williamson 10,000 Euros for "partial Holocaust denial." According to reports, the 10,000 Euros fine reflects Williamson's public statement that he believes that "200,000 to 300,000 Jews died in Nazi concentration camps" rather than the widely touted figure of six million.

According to the dw-world.de report, you stated that the pope must "'clarify unambiguously that there can be no denying' that the Nazis killed six million Jews." So I am writing to tell you that as a Muslim and a nonbeliever in both papal infallibility and Zionist historiography, I am not going to endorse the six million figure even if the Pope threatens me with hellfire and damnation.

Goldman Sachs Group Inc. in danger of losing business with a key group of clients as a result of the fraud allegations it faces: governments in Europe and the U.S.

Politicians in the U.K. and Germany are starting to call on their governments to cut ties with Goldman, which has long been been one of the top financial advisers to European policy makers.

U.K. Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg, riding high in opinion polls less than three weeks before national elections, said on Tuesday that Goldman "should now be suspended in its role as one of the advisers to the government until these allegations are properly looked into." His comments follow Prime Minister Gordon Brown's recent characterization of Goldman's alleged behavior as "morally bankrupt."

Those who have studied history know that nothing invigorates and empowers an authoritarian regime more than a spectacular act of violence, some sudden and senseless loss of life that allows the autocrat to stand on the smoking rubble and identify himself as the hero.

Acts of terror and violence never benefit the average man or woman. They only ever benefit those in positions of power.

Southern Poverty Law Center Takes Aim at Camp FEMA & Others

Is the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) running damage control for the Federal government? In Popular Mechanics denial fashion, its Spring 2010 newsletter and newest article are all but rejecting the widespread evidence about FEMA camps and they are taking potshots at a new documentary that includes information about FEMA. Considering the plummeting approval rating of the new President and Congress, the government must be feeling the pressure of anxiety among US citizens, especially with the outright anger caused by last year’s “leak” of the now-infamous MIAC (Missouri Information Analysis Center) report, the CNN attack piece on the Oath Keepers, and the fall 2009 release of the new film Camp FEMA, it seems likely that damage control is exactly what is going on.

Goldman Sachs and the Mega Banks: Too Big To Obey The Law

But as the White House surveys the battlefield this morning and considers how best to press home the advantage, one major fact dominates. Any pursuit of Goldman and others through our legal system increases uncertainty and could even cause a political run on the bank – through politicians and class action lawsuits piling on.

And, as no doubt Jamie Dimon (the articulate and very well connected head of JP Morgan Chase) already told Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner over the weekend, if we “demonize” our big banks in this fashion, it will undermine our economic recovery and could weaken financial stability around the world.

Deportation Is A Nazi Policy

There is a reason for the fact, that in modern times laws are written by representatives of the people to whom they are applied: Governments and parliaments come and go, but laws often outlive them.

Except in dictatorships, laws are not written by the executives who enforce them or the judges who interpret them. Even some totalitarian rulers create a symbolic legislature, made up of people's representatives to write new laws into existance. Laws were not mean to be written by foreign rulers, and certainly not by foreign military rulers. Well, everywhere except in the occupied Palestinian territories.

So, you are all damned. Damned, damned, damned! Damned to hell. And there can be no redemption while the warmongers are still in power.

There is no absolution if you know torture of innocent people is going on and you do nothing at all to stop it. The priests cannot forgive your sins if they share those sins, no matter how expensive those beads are. Having worked so hard to trick you into sin, would they really be eager to get you out?

Voices Emerge Calling for Pope's Resignation

Pope Benedict returned to the Vatican Sunday from the tiny island of Malta in the Mediterranean where he held what was called a "tearful" meeting with victims of sexual abuse by priests. CBS News correspondent Mark Phillips has more.

Benedict said he had gone to Malta under a dark cloud. He seemed to mean the ash cloud that has disrupted aviation, but people also took it to mean the cloud of the child-abuse scandal hanging over the Catholic Church.

Populism, Left and Right Why the establishment hates it by Justin Raimondo,

Our elites hate populism in all its forms simply because it threatens their power, their privileges, their pelf and their prestige: populism is by definition a revolt against the elites, in government and society. Worst of all, from a ruling class perspective, is populism of the "antigovernment" variety, because it threatens the source and symbol of their power: what Murray Rothbard called the Welfare-Warfare State.

With the worldwide economic downturn, they know their hegemony is at risk, and so they’re arming themselves, politically and legally, against the onslaught of popular rage they expect – and deserve.

Vampire Squid, Meet Ravenous Piranhas

With good reason, many see the SEC's tepid pinprick into the gargantuan body of the vampire squid as an effective bit of political theatre. After four long years of the blogosphere pounding on the implicit and explicit fraud at the heart of mortgage-backed securities and the derivatives written against them, and 1.25 years of their own humiliating derriere-kissing of Wall Street, the Democrats sorely need to establish some bonafides that they really, really, really are not beholden to Wall Street (even if they are). So some sort of simulacrum "crackdown" is needed lest their political power be eroded or even demolished in the November 2010 elections.

The Truth About Russian Communism-It Never Existed

Marx argued that societies inequities were created by Capitalists that owned the "means of production" who oppressed the poor. Only through violent revolution, he argued, could the working class take possession of the means of production.

Marx believed that once the working class took over, a "Worker's Utopia" would be created and the Capitalists and their "Bourgeoisie", middle class supporters would be destroyed. Along with them, so would greed and injustice.

The only problem is. There have been no real Communist Revolutions in the history of this world. Communism is a myth, a false ideology used to justify murder, mayhem and misery.

Judge rules against priest in sex abuse case

A federal judge has ruled that a Catholic priest should be extradited from here to his native Ireland to face child molestation charges there.

U.S. Marshals arrested the Rev. Francis Markey, 82, in November at his Miller Court apartment, on an extradition warrant alleging that he raped a 15-year-old boy twice in Ireland in 1968.

Markey has fought the extradition process each step of the way in South Bend’s U.S. District Court, but Magistrate Judge Christopher Nuechterlein has ruled against him. His final attempt was a petition seeking a writ of habeas corpus from U.S. District Judge Robert L. Miller Jr.

Israel is debated at California Democratic convention, Harman walks out in huff

Marcy herself brought up Israel in order to distance herself from Harman. I never thought I’d hear a candidate talk about brutal occupation, lack of water, unnecessary continuous deaths and lack of democracy. Harman in response called Marcy an extremist who wants to get rid of Israel, and Marcy shot back with a democratic state from the Mediterranean to the Jordan River. This got a standing ovation. And, Harman stood up and said she did not go to the caucus to debate and strode out. Unbelievable.

However, within a few years Bucky identified energy independence as the essential link in the chain of socio-political tyranny[.]
