Here we go again. The DC establishment uses MSM to promote presidential hopefuls.

With all the talk on TV these days you would think that the American people are really hyped about Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush.  Yet when you walk down main-street USA you can’t find one person interested in seeing either of them become president.  So here we go again.  The Main Sewer Stream Media is telling us that the polls are saying Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton are the presumptive party candidates.

Well it might really be the case that the Democrats are dying to see Hillary.  After all we really need someone more moderate after six years of Barack Obama.  I think that hope and change was more like double down on big government and get everyone on board to pay for it.  Barack Obama was bold and moved swiftly to consolidate the government bureaucratic unions in DC to lock out the republicans.  The IRS targeting scandal of the TEA Party was just one example of how the democrats plan to use government unions to target anybody that doesn’t play ball with them.  Mitt Romney’s politically deaf remarks that simply stated that 50% of Americans are reliant on the entitlement state and if you include government unions in that other voting block.  You can see how the numbers of mindless big government zombies are quickly becoming a powerful force that isn’t easily going to be defeated.  This is what the republicans are up against.

The republicans have once again proven that they really are the party of rich.  They simply have contempt for the poor.  This is why Obama is really smart in exploiting that.  Come on Jeb Bush….  So this is how the republican DC establishment is planning on responding to six years of Obama?  Wow.  This shows how much contempt the the DC establishment really has for the TEA Party.  They hate them almost as much as the democrats do.

So let’s face some facts.  The DC establishment doesn’t have your best interest in mind.  Watching the talking heads on Fox and ABC simply puts a exclamation point on that.  So if your having deja vu then your not alone.  This happens every 8 years now.  It may take more than electioneering to change it.  After all “Change you can deceive in!”  Has always been the theme when it comes to DC vs the people.

What happens to the economy when the Federal Reserve Tapers and trys to raise interest rates.

If you have been following the markets at all you know how much influence the Federal Reserve (FED) has on the markets and government policy.  Over recent years the fed has been the only thing that has prevented the collapse of the financial system.  The easy money policy has made it possible for the Democrats in Washington to spend with abandon without worrying about interest rates going higher on government treasury bonds.  The bond buying program has pushed interest rates down on three year treasury bonds to just 0.78% at the end of 2013.  Since then interest rates have increased to 0.93 today April 2014.  These low rates are great for borrowers and bad for lenders.  Most people think of it terms of how much will it cost me personally when interest rates increase when the FED stops buying bonds to prop up the market.  Well when you think of interest rates.  You should think how will Washington DC react when rates start to return to a more normal interest rate world where the FED distortion is removed. 

Today the FED’s Jenet Yellen raised the employment bar by setting the expectation for raising interest rates with a new target rate for unemployment from 6.7% to 5.2 -5.6%.  She stated that the job market isn’t as strong as she would like to see.  The market responded with the Dow jumping 150 points nearly 1%.  This means easy money for the foreseeable future probably the next two years.  So You can bet that interest rates will remain at 0 or below.  Keep in mind when I say below I mean bond buying program which is still in effect for the next 6 to 9 months. 

The Government loves it.  It puts off the day of reckoning on the nation’s deficit.  Here is my bold prediction about that.  The FED will never be able to raise interest rates until the US government gets it deficit under control.  So in other words rates will never be allowed to go up because the government simply can’t allow it.  If the FED allows interest rates to rise the government will step in to prevent it.  Thereby forcing the FED to keep rates artificially low even as the economy heats up. 

Probably the best place to be with your assets when this happens is in the stock market and cherry picking quality bonds that are solid where the majority are crap.  The best way to invest in stocks is to either pick them yourself and watch them or find a fund with quality managers with low management fees.  On the bond front you will want to avoid picking individual bonds yourself. You will definitely want to choose a quality bond fund manager.  Here is where it might be better not to look at the fees as closely.  Because if the bond market is hit hard you will want quality bonds and you probably aren’t savvy enough to find the diamonds in the rough.  From here going forward you must be a picker and not investing in index funds and ETFs.  Because in these investments you buy the good performers along with the worst.    But you don’t want to hang your hat on the FED or Washington DC doing the right thing.  Because you may just find yourself holding the empty bag of promises of hope, freedom, and security.

Why corporations seem to have more rights than you do.

I hear people say all the time with disdain…  “Corporations have more rights that I do as a citizen.”  On it’s face it seems true.  Try selling lemonade on your local street corner and you’re bound to think that.  Why is it that Corporations seem to be able to do things that you can’t?

The first myth is that corporations have rights in the first place.  The absolutely don’t have “rights”, however they do have “privileges”.  This can be confusing because the government has made a system of total control through the granting of “privileges” via licenses and statute laws.  The system of control comes from the government making the legal presumption that you are a corporation operating in “commerce”.  This presumption is correct because everything now in the “public sphere” is commerce.  The courts don’t recognize your “rights” at all.  In fact they can’t even see you as a “human”.  This is explained to you when you watch the “wizard of Oz” where the wizard behind the curtain declares that he is all powerful.  But in reality he is just a projection of the reality that we live.

“Oz”  is the “public sphere”  and the “Wizards” are “judges” hiding behind the “curtain”.  They are only able to see the fictions of the public.  The fictions are as follows…  The People, Public, Commerce, Currency, Real-estate , Privileges, and Human Resources.  The “reality’ and the “substance” behind these “fictions” are as follows… Humans, Citizens, Trade, Money “gold”, Land, Rights, and Labor.  Notice Corporations use all these terms that could be interpreted as the other. Break out a blacks law dictionary and they are defined similarly but in terms of the government control system are very different.  You “presume” falsely that the government is looking at you sitting in court as a “Human”.  What they see and and what they only can see is the “person”.  A ” Person” dose not have “Rights”.  A “Human” Does.  But the “Judge” the “Wizard” can’t see the “Human” he only sees the “Fictions” created by the “Government” control system.  All laws are created by congress to control and direct “Commerce”.  They are not there to get you your “Rights”.  You do have “Rights”  they are spelled out for you in the “Bill of Rights” in “Constitution of the United States”.

Yes you have “Rights”, but you must remember that when you go to court the presumption of the Wizard is that you are operating in Commerce in the Public.  The rules of commerce apply.  “Corporations” are “Fictions”.  In the Wizard of OZ a corporation is represented by the “Strawman”.   If only he had a brain.  He was not fully “Human” he was simply a “Person” operating in “Commerce”.  He is granted “Privileges” but not “Rights”.  Therefore he is no different than a corporation.  Dorthy and the Wizard are the Humans in the land of OZ.  But the Wizard made it a point to hide reality behind projections of reality. To the public these projections  were real because they were ignorant of the Wizard and his projectors.

How Obama Plans to Socialize the United States of America.

BACK 
In the 
The 
U.S.S.A 
( The United Socialist States of America )
cid:image001.jpg@01CB7219.83FB1450
WAYNE ALLYN ROOT: 
‘Overwhelm the System’ 

Barack Obama is no fool. 
 cid:image002.gif@01CB7219.83FB1450 
He is not incompetent. 
To the contrary, he is brilliant. 
He knows exactly what he’s doing. 
He is purposely overwhelming  the U.S. Economy 
To create systematic failure
Economic crisis  and social chaos, 
Thereby destroying capitalism 
And our country from within. 

 Barack Obama is my college classmate. 
cid:image003.gif@01CB7219.83FB1450
( Columbia University, Class of ’83 ) 
As Glenn Beck correctly predicted from day one, 
Obama is following the plan  of 
Cloward & Piven, 
Two professors at 
Columbia University. 
They outlined a plan to socialize America 
By overwhelming the system with government spending 
And entitlement demands. 
Add up the clues below. 
Taken individually they’re alarming. 
Taken as a whole, 
It is a brilliant, 
Machiavellian game plan to turn the United States 
Into a 
Socialist/ Marxist State 

With a permanent majority 
That desperately needs government for survival, 
And can be counted on 
To always vote for bigger government. 
Why not? 
They have no responsibility to pay for it. 

 Universal health care. 
The health care bill had very little to do with health care. 
It had everything to do with 
Unionizing millions of hospital and health care workers, 
As well as adding 15,000 to 20,000 new IRS Agents. 
(who will join government employee unions) 
Obama doesn’t care that giving free health care 
To 30 million Americans 
Will add trillions to the National Debt. 
What he does care about 
Is that it cements the dependence  of those 30 million voters 
To the Democrats and big government. 
Who but a socialist revolutionary 
Would pass this reckless spending bill 
In the middle of a depression? 
cid:image004.gif@01CB7219.83FB1450

 Cap and trade. 
Like health care legislation having nothing to do with 
Health care, 
Cap and trade has nothing to do with 
Global warming. 
It has everything to do with 
Redistribution of income, 

cid:image005.gif@01CB7219.83FB1450

government control of the economy 
cid:image006.gif@01CB7219.83FB1450
And a criminal payoff 
To Obama’s biggest contributors. 
 cid:image007.gif@01CB7219.83FB1450 
Those powerful and wealthy unions and contributors 
( like GE, which owns NBC, MSNBC and CNBC ) 
Can then be counted on 
To support everything  Obama wants. 
They will kick-back hundreds of millions of dollars 
In contributions 
To Obama and the   

cid:image008.gif@01CB7219.83FB1450
To keep them in power. 
The bonus is 
That all the new taxes  on Americans 
With bigger cars, 
Bigger homes 
And businesses 
Helps  Obama 
“spread the wealth around.” 

 Make Puerto Rico a state. 
Why? 
Who’s asking for a 51st state? 
Who’s asking for millions of 
New welfare recipients 
And 
Government entitlement addicts 
In the middle of a depression? 
Certainly not American taxpayers. 
But this has been Obama’s plan all along. 
His goal is to add 
2  new Democrat senators, 
5  Democrat congressman 
And a million  loyal Democratic voters 
Who are dependent on big government. 

Legalize  12 million illegal  immigrants. 
Just giving these 12 million potential  new citizens 
Free health care  alone 
Could overwhelm the system 
And bankrupt America. 
But it adds 12 million reliable new  Democrat voters 
Who can be counted on to support  big government. 
Add another few trillion  dollars 
In welfare, 
Aid to dependent children, 
Food stamps, 
Free medical, 
Education, 
Tax credits for the poor, 
 And eventually 
Social Security. 

 Stimulus and bailouts. 
cid:image009.gif@01CB7219.83FB1450
Where did all that money go? 
It went to Democrat contributors, 
cid:image010.gif@01CB7219.83FB1450
Organizations, 
(ACORN) 
And unions, 
Including billions of dollars 
To save or create jobs of government employees 
Across the country. 
cid:image011.gif@01CB7219.83FB1450
It went to save 
GM & Chrysler 
So that their employees could keep paying union dues. 
 cid:image012.gif@01CB7219.83FB1450 
It went to 
AIG 
So that Goldman Sachs  could be bailed out. 
(after giving Obama almost $1 million in contributions) 
A staggering $125  billion  went to teachers. 
(thereby protecting their union dues) 
All those public employees 
will vote loyally  Democrat 
to protect their bloated salaries and pensions that are 
bankrupting America. 
 cid:image013.gif@01CB7219.83FB1450 
The country goes broke, 
future generations face a bleak future, but 
Obama, 
the Democratic Party, 
government, 
and the unions 

grow more powerful 
The ends justify the means. 

 Raise taxes  on small business owners, 
cid:image014.gif@01CB7219.83FB1450
high-income earners, 
and job creators. 
Put the entire burden on only the top 20 percent of taxpayers, 

cid:image015.gif@01CB7219.83FB1450

redistribute the income, 
punish success, 
 and reward those who did nothing to deserve it. 
( except vote for Obama ) 
Reagan  wanted to dramatically cut  taxes 
 cid:image016.gif@01CB7219.83FB1450 
in order to starve the government. 
Obama  wants to dramatically raise  taxes 
cid:image017.gif@01CB7219.83FB1450
to starve his political opposition. 

With the acts outlined above, 
Obama and his regime 
cid:image018.gif@01CB7219.83FB1450
have created  a vast and rapidly expanding 
cid:image019.gif@01CB7219.83FB1450  cid:image020.gif@01CB7219.83FB1450 cid:image021.gif@01CB7219.83FB1450 
constituency of voters 
cid:image022.gif@01CB7219.83FB1450 cid:image023.gif@01CB7219.83FB1450 cid:image024.gif@01CB7219.83FB1450
dependent  on big government; 
a vast privileged class of public employees 
who work for big government; 
and a government dedicated to 
destroying capitalism 
and installing themselves  as 
socialist rulers 
by overwhelming the system. 

 Add it up and you’ve got the perfect 

cid:image025.gif@01CB7219.83FB1450
Marxist scheme, 
all devised by my 
Columbia University 
college classmate
