I’m not so sure about bombing Dresden needlessly. I got from a great aunt who escaped Hungary to US with her parents and siblings a Deseden bowl from that time before ” the Germans thrashed the place and broke all or most the molds of the Dresden art.ps the bombings didn’t help either. War sucks.

Merry Christmas

re your…
“It is obvious that we, The American People, out of a false sense of “equality and fair play” have allowed a gang of foreign communist conspirators opportunities in seizing control of Our Country without firing a shot. I never thought we would become so careless, by permitting a loss of our freedom happening, especially in a manner like this!!”

That statement would be timely in 1913, then again in 1929, 1934, and or Dec 8th 1941. “We” didn’t want any part of many things that happened to the USA. “We” wanted to be a neutral isolationist country, but “they” Foreigners I assume, wanted to “tap” into our tax dollars and bodies. Think about it.

The way I see it…”They” took so much from the USA gradually that we had that final tipping point meltdown in ’08, and ….

Now “they” (foreign influence) can’t take so much anymore, and things are naturally going against them, things trying to right themselves. REVERSE GEAR. The only REALLY good years we had was 1945 to 1975, and THAT was NOT intended.

If this doesn’t wake you up to what’s happening, nothing will!!

I woke up decades ago when “THEIR” media said…
“We don’t want or need the smoke stack industries” and we don’t want the rust belt” And
“we” are going to be a service economy” and …..
“Foreign competition is good” and
“The US consumer is going to get higher quality cheaper products” and
“We are winning the Vietnam war, we just need more time”

“He” is not “he”. “He” is them. “They” are always unknown. Never come up for vote. Pull strings behind the scenes. For DECADES thru both democrats and republicans. No mater who gets elected….Nothing ever changes. Things get worse and worse.

The time to start complaining and resisting was 1975, by avoiding imported products. It was the ONLY way to short circuit the global agenda. “He” is a representative of “them”.

So by looking at that long post of fired military men, my conclusion is the 100 year old world gov’t, that supersedes our local gov’t, has some agenda that requires it.

If my reversal predictions of the past 1913 to 2008 is in tact, we may assume there will NEVER be another world war again, making the huge military (modern day pyramid or monument) redundant, not needed. Wars are fought differently lately, like 9/11 for example.

On top of that, our military was constantly used for other countries benefit, at US taxpayer costs. The US taxpayer can’t afford the things they used to because their chump change paychecks don’t go as far because of exporting jobs.

Hiring foreigners instead of hiring Americans to do simple jobs Americans can do right here. We have people right here that can make can openers screwdrivers, coffee mugs, hand tools, machinery etc etc. What are we stupid?

We all loved Ronald Reagan, but even “he” could not stop out sourcing and globalization. In fact, after “he” got elected, “he” allegedly started the “Reagan Defence Industry Build Up”.

I was THERE. I watched all the tax paying jobs go off shore and replaced with jobs paid by tax PAYERS to a bigger crowd of tax ABSORBERS. And for MORE insult during those days…..

To stimulate the Japanese and S. Korean economy, and FOOL the US economy, “He” (really they) created tax incentives in the 1980s for domestic businesses to buy foreign made machinery. 5 year write off deductions rather than 10 year write off.

I saw LOADS of brand new Japanese and Korean made machinery in every machine shop and sheet metal shop. I got sick listening to the owners that gleefully bought those machines, boasting how high quality they were and how happy they were.

I warned them, and most of them went bankrupt afterward.

If this doesn’t wake you up to what’s happening, nothing will!!

 (Note): This trend continues in 2014 !

    Since Barack Obama has been in the White House, high ranking military officers have been removed from their positions at a rate that is absolutely unprecedented.

Things have gotten so bad that a number of retired generals are publicly speaking out about the ‘purge’ of the U.S. military that they believe is taking place.  As you will see below, dozens of highly decorated military leaders have been dismissed from their positions over the past few years.

So why is this happening?   What is going on right now is absolutely crazy especially during a time of peace.   Is there a deliberate attempt to reshape the military and remove those who don’t adhere to the proper ‘viewpoints’ ?   Does someone out there feel a need to get officers that won’t cooperate out of the way?

Throughout world history, whatever comes next after a military purge is never good.   Perhaps you are reading this and you think that ‘purge’ is too strong a word for what is taking place.

If this continues, what is the U.S. military going to look like in a few years?

Just consider the following quotes from some very highly decorated retired officers:

– Retired Army Major General Paul Vallely: “The White House protects their own.  That’s why they stalled on the investigation into Fast and Furious, Benghazi and Obamacare.  He’s intentionally weakening and gutting our military, Pentagon and reducing us as a superpower, and anyone in the ranks who disagrees or speaks out is being purged.”

– Retired Army Major General Patrick Brady:  “There is no doubt he (Obama) is intent on emasculating the military and will fire anyone who disagrees with him.”

– Retired Army Lt. General William G. Jerry Boykin:  “Over the past three years, it is unprecedented for the number of four-star generals to be relieved of duty, and not necessarily relieved for cause.”

– Retired Navy Captain Joseph John:  “I believe there are more than 137 officers who have been forced out or given bad evaluation reports so they will never make Flag (officer), because of their failure to comply to certain views.”

A Pentagon official, who asked to remain nameless because they were not authorized to speak on the matter, said “even young officers, down through the ranks have been told not to talk about Obama or the politics of the White House.   They are purging everyone and if you want to keep your job just keep your mouth shut.   Now this trend appears to be accelerating.”

General Vallely’s comment: “Absolutely every communist regime on the planet did this as soon as they got in power.”

Yes, there are lots of things only recently come to light, including Eisenhower’s inhumane treatment and murder of the POWs.

You know what scares me? To read of these atrocities committed against civilians, and then to imagine how American civilians would be treated if foreign armies ever overran the U.S. I can only think we would suffer a similar fate, based upon how much enmity we have earned in the world.

The whole world hates us, and who can blame them?

Of course Americans think such a thing could never happen.

“Reporters from the west (new york times) who were wined and dined by the stalinists, never went into the countryside, but went back home and said everything was wonderful!”

Shocking, just shocking! Who would’ve thought the NYT would be involved in propaganda? I heard somewhere that they were the most respected news organization in the US.

What a joke. We here in the US have no clue what the truth has been for the last 100 years.

goldcountry @ 15:37-Famine was bogus

Posted by Auandag @ 18:19 on December 20, 2014  

A famous reporter and author of the time , Malcom Muggeridge, wrote extensively about how Stalin blamed  famine on the genocide, however world records of the time show that Stalin exported record amounts of wheat out of the Ukraine. Reporters from the west (new york times) who were wined and dined by the stalinists, never went into the countryside, but went back home and said everything was wonderful! It is only recently that the extent of the mass killings has come to light.


Posted by goldcountry @ 15:37 on December 20, 2014  

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Holodomor (Ukrainian: Голодомор, “Extermination by hunger” or “Hunger-extermination”;[2] derived from ‘морити голодом’, “to kill by starvation” [3][4][5]) was a famine in the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic in 1932 and 1933 that killed estimated 2.5-7.5 million Ukrainians. During the famine, which is also known as the “Terror-Famine in Ukraine” and “Famine-Genocide in Ukraine”,[6][7][8] millions of citizens of the Ukrainian SSR, the majority of whom were Ukrainians, died of starvation in a peacetime catastrophe unprecedented in the history of Ukraine.[9] Since 2006, the Holodomor has been recognized by the independent Ukraine and many other countries as a genocide of the Ukrainian people by Soviet Union ruled by Stalin.[10]

Early estimates of the death toll by scholars and government officials varied greatly; anywhere from 1.8[11] to 12 million[12] ethnic Ukrainians were said to have perished as a result of the famine. Recent research has since narrowed the estimates to between 2.4[13] and 7.5[14] million. The exact number of deaths is hard to determine, due to a lack of records,[15][16] but the number increases significantly when the deaths inside heavily Ukrainian-populated Kuban are included.[17] Older estimates are still often cited in political commentary.[18] According to the decision of Kyiv Appellation Court, the demographic losses due to the famine amounted to 10 million, with 3.9 million famine deaths, and a 6.1 million birth deficit.[15]

Scholars disagree on the relative importance of natural factors and bad economic policies as causes of the famine but believe it was long term plan of Joseph Stalin, an attempt to eliminate Ukrainian independence movement.[9][19][20][21] Using Holodomor in reference to the famine emphasizes its man-made aspects, arguing that actions such as rejection of outside aid, confiscation of all household foodstuffs, and restriction of population movement confer intent, defining the famine as genocide; the loss of life has been compared to the Holocaust.

Nowhere did I write that Hitler was a “nice guy.”

“Things too horrible to mention” happened on both sides of the war. Millions of German civilians were bombed needlessly in Dresden, and thousands more raped and murdered by the Russian and Mongol troops. Millions of German POWs were reclassified by Eisenhower to “disarmed enemy combatants” so that he could continue to starve them in brutal conditions long after the war was concluded. To think that the Allies were noble and upright is delusion.

If you want to know the other side of the story read Hellstorm.

Armstrongs long standing super bullish call on the DOW

Posted by Richard640 @ 13:27 on December 20, 2014  

Dow Jones today Dec 19th
Posted by Martin Armstrong

The Dow elected only the Daily Bearish on Monday not last Friday which was also a Weekly. Therefore, no Weekly Bearish has been elected leaving 17235 intact. Hence, a closing today above 17,758 today will be an indicator that higher highs are yet to be made. A closing above 17970 will signal a breakout to upside.

We can see that the technical overhead resistance still remain in the 18300 level. It still appears we are headed higher into 2015. The key in the mid 18000 range. Exceeding that opens the door to the 23,000 level and exceed that could lead to a major Phase Transition into the 2017-2018 period as capital flees government debt everywhere and runs to the private asset sector.

Judge Rules Obama’s Abuse Of Executive Orders Is “Unconstitutional”

Tyler Durden’s pictureSubmitted by Tyler Durden on 12/20/2014 12:04 -0500

Martin Armstrong

Submitted by Martin Armstrong via Armstrong Economics,

A federal judge, Judge Arthur J. Schwab of the Western District of Pennsylvania, used a deportation decision to probe the constitutionality of President Obama’s executive order on amnesty, declaring it “unconstitutional.”

It is about time that Executive Orders are challenged in court for they are absolutely unconstitutional since they smack of a dictatorial abuse of power that denies the people the right to decide the fate of their nation.

Indeed, Texas and other states have already initiated lawsuits challenging the order. Nonetheless, the key here is that ANY such Executive Order is unconstitutional violating the entire concept of a Republic where it is at least a pretense that it is a government by the people rather than a king acting on a personal whim. This is what the law should be – not because of the subject-matter, but any issue.

Obama could just as easily order that the IRS increase taxes to 85% without Congress. Anything would be possible. This is the immigration issue, but the act of an Executive Order is everything. Obama just issued such an unconstitutional order to the FCC directing them to regulate and license the Internet. There is nothing any President could do without a vote from the people

Consequently, Judge Schwab wrote:

“President Obama’s unilateral legislative action violates the separation of powers provided for in the United States Constitution as well as the Take Care Clause, and therefore, is unconstitutional.”

Yes we’re not getting the proper bacteria or diets anymore less you can live off the land then have to worry what their dropping on us and polluting us with heavy metals and illegal dumping pesticide runoff oil spills and now radiation. Where ever man congregates wild life dies. Eagles again are in danger as many other species and fish one from ocean one from man and dams destroying their spawning grounds either because they can’t get through or it destroys the rivers.

The use of fluoridation in water also who knows what it’s doing to the digestive systems. That one I heard one one of Hitlers projects in hopes for mind control and world domination as well as population control.


goldcountry Hitler was not a nice guy he was a opportunists and a sociopath. I hope you don’t think that all those people he murdered esp. Jews he blamed for their troubles  never happened. I doubt after pillaging the Jews his idea of a prosperous economy would of lasted. I talked to soldiers who were not Jewish who saw it. Things too horrible to mention. Only to mention one was how some of these soldiers who caught some of the German soldiers behind it took them out executed them and said they tried to escape.what they found angered and even nauseated them so much they shot them on the spot.

Last night I was thinking that I have bee through a currency reset of sorts. When I was in Viet Nam we were paid in military payment certificates, (mpc). The vietnamese accepted mpc as real money for goods and services rendered. About half way through my tour the army changed the color of the mpc saying the old colored mpc was now worthless. We had less than 24 hours to exchange our old mpc for new mpc. It didn’t affect me but it sure affected the vitnamese who had been paid in mpc as they didn’t have access to exchange their old mpc for new mpc.

US In A Sweet Spot!
Puru Saxena

December 19, 2014

Big Picture – The world’s prominent central banks are pursuing an accommodative monetary policy and this bodes well for the stock market. Remember, when it comes to investing, monetary policy trumps everything else and the risk free rate of return determines the value of every asset. When interest rates are low and credit is cheap and plentiful, asset prices tend to inflate. Conversely, when interest rates are high and credit is tight, asset prices tend to deflate.

At present, the world’s largest economy is healing and its central bank is maintaining the Fed Funds Rate at a historic low. After several years of deleveraging, American households are borrowing again (Figure 1) and this is stimulating business activity. Although the US unemployment rate has fallen significantly over the past year, inflationary pressures are well contained and this implies that the Federal Reserve will not raise interest rates anytime soon.

If our assessment is correct, the US economy is currently in a sweet spot (just enough growth and lack of inflationary pressures) and if its housing market continues to appreciate, it will unleash tremendous pent-up demand. After all, American households have deleveraged for several years and by doing so, they have postponed the purchase of big ticket items. However, it appears as though they are now beginning to open up their wallets again and this shift in sentiment is benefiting the cyclical industries. For instance, it was recently reported that America’s auto sales have now jumped to levels not seen since 2003! In addition to buying new vehicles, Americans are refurbishing their homes, upgrading their properties, travelling more and spending more money on discretionary items.

“People in general are so ignorant of what constitutes a healthy diet or lifestyle that I am amazed that the US hasn’t experienced a huge die off of people after they reach their 50′s.”

We probably are experiencing just such a die off, but along with everything else that’s important, it’s just not being reported.

I think your take on health is right on. I’ve gone paleo. Though I miss grains sometimes–I feel great. And no pharma for me, thanks. I use herbs and pure foods for medicine.

Banks Win Again – They Have Delayed (Repealed) the Volcker Rule

Posted on December 19, 2014 by Martin Armstrong

Signing of Dodd-Frank – Now Virtually Repealed/Gutted

The NY money center Banks won again in Washington, the second time in a single month. They succeeded in repealing Dodd-Frank and have now succeeded in repealing the Volcker Rule, which it is officially put on “delay” that will be permanent. The Federal Reserve has repealed the Volcker Rule that will let the highly speculative banks hold onto billions of dollars in private-equity and hedge-fund investments for at least two more years until it is delayed again if not just forgotten about silently.

The Fed granted the delay yesterday after banks argued selling their vast positions quickly might force them to accept discount prices. The irony in this is that Goldman Sachs Group Inc. has $11.4 billion in private-equity funds, hedge funds and similar investments, while Morgan Stanley has $5 billion, securities current filings show. But Goldman became a “bank” only to get in line for bailouts. They are not a real bank with branch offices taking deposits from little old ladies. They became a “bank” to accept a bailout. Now as a bank, they are altering the entire banking system because they are traders – not bankers. JP Morgan want to be more and more like Goldman Sachs. This is destroying the entire banking system.

Speculating is NOT what a bank was supposed to do. Banks were to lend money to build the economy – not speculate for profit. Goldman Sachs should be returned to an investment bank and JP Morgan should be told to choose – sell all its branches and stop taking deposits becoming an Investment Bank or stop the speculation and be a damn bank.

These politicians are up for sale and that is the entire problem. Indeed, the banks virtually rent space on the floor of Congress. They own the building and almost everyone inside. Nobody gives a damn about the future of the economy and the nation just how much will the banks give them to keep office.

We are headed into another crisis of greater proportions because NY money center banks are no longer about “RELATIONSHIPS” but a free-for-all based solely on TRANSACTIONoriented business. One deal to the next without any long-term strategy. We are headed into a vortex that may kill the dollar as the reserve currency on the next decline because the banks will blow up big time on this next round.


This surprises me.

A federal appeals court concluded that a history of mental illness shouldn’t bar citizens from owning a weapon in a first such ruling that may expand the rights of millions of U.S. gun owners.

A federal law barring a Michigan man in 2011 from owning a gun because he was committed to a mental institution more than 20 years earlier is unconstitutional, a three-judge panel of the Cincinnati-based court ruled Dec. 18.

A provision in law that bans gun ownership for anyone “adjudicated as a mental defective or who has been committed to a mental institution” violates the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, the panel found.

The ruling stems from a 2008 U.S. Supreme Court decision that found, for the first time, that the Constitution protects individual gun rights. In that case, the high court struck down a handgun ban imposed by the District of Columbia and the ruling raised questions about other restrictions on weapons.

The Supreme Court’s 5-4 ruling in the D.C. case resolved a constitutional question that had lurked for two centuries: whether the Second Amendment covers people who aren’t affiliated with a state-run militia.

Clifford Tyler’s case in Michigan also raises questions about the constitutional basis for restricting gun laws applying to other settings and for other classes of gunowners, Adam Winkler, a University of Los Angeles law professor, said in an e-mail today.

Narrowing Laws

“If seriously applied, this ruling could mean invalidation or narrowing of laws banning felons from having guns and restricting guns in school zones,” Winkler said.  Tyler, 73, was committed to a Michigan mental institution in 1985 after suffering a breakdown tied to a contentious divorce, according to court filings. After a month he was released and went back to work and had no other instances of being committed, the filings show.

When Tyler sought to get a gun permit in 2011, he was denied it on the basis that federal law excludes those with past history of mental illness from owning a weapon unless they fall into the statute’s exceptions.  Other classes of people, including undocumented workers, convicted felons and drug offenders, are also barred from legally owning a weapon under the law, but they are supposed to have an opportunity to show they fall into exceptions to the statute.


The appeals court noted that since 1992, Congress has failed to fund programs that pay reviewers of such gun applications.

That puts citizens such as Tyler in a “Catch-22” position, Judge Danny Boggs of the U.S. Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals said in his 48-page ruling.   “Tyler may not possess a weapon because he was once committed to a mental institution,” the judge noted. When he sought to get an exception, he was denied his rights to review because of Congressional inaction, Boggs said.

The law also suffers from constitutional flaws when it seeks to ban all citizens who have ever been in a mental hospital, the judge added.  “Not all previously institutionalized persons are mentally ill at a later time, so the law is at least somewhat overbroad,” he wrote.

The U.S. Census bureau said the country’s population totaled more than 310 million in 2011, the year Tyler was denied a gun permit. A Gallup poll that year showed 47 percent of U.S. households owned a gun.
