If you don't trust people, spy on them

British intelligence GCHQ has spied on the Transatlantic fiber optic cable grabbing ALL German e-mails and phone calls. Just what the hell is going on in this world? This is like a jealous girl/boyfriend trying to make you account for every minute you are not with them. Enough is enough! Any politician who defends this nonsense should be run out of office PERMANENTLY. There is nobody guarding the guards. There were 19 guys + perhaps a camel who attacked the World Trade Center. Government knew all about that plot 1 year in advance because the FIRST World Trade Center Bombers drew the twin towers on the wall of their cell at MCC New York on level 9 South with planes going into it one year BEFORE! I suppose that was not reliable because they didn’t have to torture them for that info. Yes the correction office was Wm Kumb and no NY Newspapers would dare report the truth – New York Times included. This is why they created Homeland Security to gather all evidence from the agencies who had the info. They don’t want to publicly acknowledge that one.

So let’s see; we need to seize everything to keep society safe when they could not stop the Boston Bombers who used cell phones. The more you seize, the long it will take to sift through everything and you will NEVER prevent an attack tomorrow. The truth? They are too busy looking for taxes and money to seize while pretending to be looking for terrorists – good one! The real formula:

Terrorists = More Power = more TAXES

Me feels that most politicians suck.

Our political governments are infested with lawyers who know how to write and prosecute laws, but are braindead when it comes to creating an economy. They have ZERO skills in the creation department This is the same disease that kills corporations. It is the entrepreneur who creates the entity from his vision (Henry Ford, Steve Jobs), but then the company is taken over by the accounts and lawyers who dominate the board. People like Steve Jobs are thrown out for they can only create, not manage. Then bureaucratic corporations, like government, are incapable of creation and this causes them to take over start-ups paying a fortune to kids who can create because the board of directors lack those skills.

Eventually, the corporation dies void of any creative skills. Government follows the same exact path to extinction. In ancient history it was called becoming Byzantine. Over-regulation to the point the cost of government was so oppressive the economy simply died. The same pattern emerged in Venice as the state wanted to own everything. When Florence because a corrupt bureaucracy, the same fate awaited it in the dawn. Genoa rotated the office of the Doge on an annual basis. That prevented an infestation of bureaucrats and allowed Genoa to outlast both Venice and Florence. Hence – term limits are ESSENTIAL!

How to Protect The People from the NSA – Easy

Posted on June 18, 2013 by Armstrong Economics

If this whole affair is really about terrorists, then enact legislation that states no American can be prosecuted for any crime based upon any evidence obtained from the NSA. So if ANYTHING is handed to the Justice Department, SEC, CFTC, or IRS, then a citizen shall be ABSOLUTELY IMMUNE from civil or criminal prosecution.

This would be a simple solution. They listen to a phone call and call the IRS, you cannot be prosecuted civilly or criminally – you get ABSOLUTE IMMUNITY just as government prosecutors get from prosecuting innocent people.

END of debate.

Switzerland Show Some Guts At Last

Posted on June 18, 2013 by Armstrong Economics

Legislation that would have ended the Swiss banking laws and handed everything to the USA was defeated in a recent vote. The secrecy laws was put in place in 1934 to protect the Jews and Germans from Hitler who attempted the same thing making it criminal for a German to have an offshore account. The Sovereign Debt Crisis cannot be solved by even raising taxes to 120%. The politicians are desperate to hold on to power and cannot see their own destruction of the world economy is taking place because of their greed and corruption.

Just what we need. NOT!

The G8 this week is looking to regulate mining with new laws.

"These G8 partnerships will also stress “introducing stronger legal frameworks to regulate the extractives sector by introducing new laws that make EITI standards a legal requirement,” said the PM’s office."

No public borrowing and no career politicians. Virtually every department should be privatized to prevent state pensions. Those in government just cannot keep their fingers out of other people’s pockets – impossible! This is behind everything from the NSA to Homeland Security. Instead of reform, they are digging in their heels to defend their right to exploit your money. Government is NOT society. They are two distinct entities.

The city of Detroit defaulted on $2.5 billion of its outstanding debt. The creditors are getting what they deserve. He who lends to government depends on the exploitation of the people to get repaid. The city’s retired city workers were also warned that significant cuts in pensions and health insurance would take place. This is the problem all governments face. They promised the moon. Then when those workers retired, they had to be replaced. The cost of government is rising exponentially and this causes higher taxes and it becomes a dog chasing its own tail. There is NO way out but collapse. The economic model upon which government has been designed post-WWII is simply braindead. Dumb and Dumber could have done a better job.

The size of government escalates and this creates a deflationary vortex through which the economy is sucked dry. There is no surviving this crisis. Politicians are desperate to cling to power so they buy tanks and guns to defend against the inevitable.

California on the Brink: Pension Crisis About to Get Worse

By Elizabeth MacDonald
Published June 12, 2013

A growing number of key California cities are a lot worse off than previously thought, thanks to new changes coming in the way state and local governments must account for their pension costs.

The pension changes from Moody’s, and separately the Governmental Accounting Standards Board, scheduled for this month, could result in Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Jose, Azusa and Inglewood joining fiscally troubled Stockton and San Bernardino, among others, as severe credit risks. It’s all largely due to soaring employee retirement costs, according to new analysis based on the methodology by Bob Williams and his team at State Budget Solution (SBS), a non-partisan organization that studies state budget crises.

The new rules could nearly double California’s unfunded liabilities to $328.6 billion. Moreover, California cities that have already filed for bankruptcy protection, like Stockton and Vallejo, will fall deeper into the red.

Officials in these California cities did not return calls for

Paranoid or Conservative

Posted on June 11, 2013 by Armstrong Economics

Securing Phone Calls and Emails should no longer be for the paranoid, but good old fashion conservative business & personal practices as long as people like Feinstein pretend to represent people instead of the government institution. We have no control over her. She was sent to do “God’s Work” like Goldman Sachs.

The problem is who is their “GOD”? It sure is not the one that says treat everyone as yourself and “thous shalt not covert thy neighbor’s goods” since that is all they are ever after.

You should talk to anyone who grew up in East Germany. When the government fell, their files on everyone came out. They threatened everyone just as the USA threatens newspapers and Google – do as we direct or else. People then renovated their apartments. What they discovered were hidden microphones in everyone’s apartment. The NSA along with Feinstein and her thugs, are acting EXACTLY as in George Orwell’s 1984 where there was a picture frame in every house that monitored what they were doing. God help us, a terrorist might come over for dinner.

What is going on down there is typical. They make a lot of noise, but expect it to blow over and everyone will forget in a few weeks as usual. Most do not take this serious and Feinstein defends her spying on everyone to her dying breath. She should resign !!!!! She is a disgrace to all the people who died for this country to defend the constitution she swept away. How can you ask people to lay down their lives to defend what people like her do not respect? She is a international disgrace.

This achieve is massive. They can call up anything on any individual exactly like the Stassi. There is no difference.

How does this sound to you? It sounds good to me. This morning's thoughts from Martin Armstrong:

Since money is electronic and nearly 40% of government exists to extort money from the public to sustain itself, the solution can only be total reform. We must eliminate income tax, reduce the size of government dramatically as a result, collapse all regulation of any industry into a single agency, privatize virtually everything so it is far better to have private companies bidding for the job where their workers must perform and live like the rest of us without special exemptions, eliminate career politicians by creating one-term one-time one-year intervals where people from the private sector actually oversea government, no major spending or program without a real democratic vote – no representatives, do all of this and we will eliminate most lobbying and corruption since the bulk of that is for taxation.

Concerning the conspiracy to create a world order, Martin Armstrong gives us his opinion:

I have said this many times. This is just gibberish. Yes those in government try to manipulate society and the economy. They are fools and it always fails. What we face is far worse than some sinister group in absolute control. This is out of control and we are in the back seat of a car driven by a Kangaroo. There is nobody in control. They do not even comprehend how to control what they cannot understand.

I have always stood up for what is right. I would be the first screaming if there was some sinister group in control. Sorry – there is none. We are not only on our own, but we have nobody to even lead us in the right direction. We get what we vote for.

Big banks being allowed to write their own ticket while Congress does what it does best, not much. 2016 should be the year of voter rebellion with growing numbers of American showing their frustration by voting against the two-party system.

Big Banks Still Write the Rules: Fmr. Inspector General of Bank Bailout
By Lauren Lyster

Former Federal Reserve Chairman Paul A. Volcker has announced he’s taking on the public’s eroding faith in government with a new foundation called the Volcker Alliance. He’s set to address an audience today in New York on the challenges facing regulatory reform, including how slowly Washington has moved on putting Dodd-Frank financial reform into effect.

The New York Times recently reported Citigroup’s (C) input was reflected in more than 70 lines of an 85-line bill that sailed through the House Financial Services Committee this month. The bill would exempt broad swathes of derivatives trades from new regulation. Two key paragraphs, according to the Times, prepared by Citigroup together with other Wall Street banks, were copied almost word for word.

Enough Is Enough
 By bluejay

Outrageous is what I have to say. The Patriot Act that our blind representatives couldn't read but signed anyway? The Sixteen to One has no such requirements to buy our shares.

A question is, when does all this squeezing the people stop?

Some brokerage firms really suck. As an example, my daughter was holding shares of a US company that took over a Canadian one which she originally put her money in. When it came time for her to sell the US company she put in a market order. The report that she received was from the pink sheets, not the American Stock Exchange where the US company was listed.

Strange? Very, very strange. She went back to the broker and checked the price as it was 30 cents lower than the American's last sale when the currency exchange was at par, meaning 1 US dollar buys exactly 1 Canadian dollar. She was told since she bought the shares in converted Canadian funds from US funds then they have to be sold in Canadian funds to be transferred back into US dollars. What a pile of meadow muffins. Remember she was selling a US security in the United States and expecting funds in US dollars. That brokerage firm had a real big software problem. She complained and the reviewing regulators said the brokerage firms acted in good faith. Of course, she got really hosed in the Pink Sheets which the regulators said was the best market in town at the time. Total BS.

She wrote a letter of protest to a congressman and never heard back. The commercial banks affiliated with brokerage firms are stealing from America but no one seems to care. We are all way over regulated by buffoons.

To prove this point, let's take another simple transaction. I buy a gold coin in Mexico for Pesos. I return to the US and sell it to a coin dealer. Does he ask me in what type of currency it was acquired with, of course not.

What do we need a stock exchange for, it used to be a convenience. Now we have the Internet and PayPal. Try putting up a bid for your shares on Craig's list, see what happens. I bet if you make a transaction from a holder of physical stock no one will ask you for anything but the money. The shares can easily have their names changed at the transfer agent. Or better yet, just give Rae a call and she'll help you with a purchase of our shares. At least you and your wife won't be frisked here.

Another thing I came across on the Patriot Act, a year or so ago I tried to open a new brokerage account at Vanguard for my wife and me.

They told me they would not do it unless I had a good copy of her SS card, a photo I.D. and at least one other source of I.D.

I couldn't believe it! I NEVER needed that kind of stuff to open a new account before. They apologized but told me they had to have it. They blamed it on the "Patriot Act". I asked them why they just needed it for my wife and not for me and they weren't really able to answer that.

In the end, we did not open the account. I thought PHOOEY! That's too much trouble for what I was trying to do!

Go figure.

It was the 911 Attack that swept in the Patriot Act and now any bank wire for $3,000 mut be reported to the government. Pretty soon it will be an ATM withdrawal of $2 or more. Remember Elliot Spritzer who started to go after Wall Street, suddenly his checks were being examined under the terrorist acts but revealed a prostitute. So he was forced to resign. That protected Wall Street bankers.
