A crucial vote is coming in July in which we learn once and for all whether Congress works for the banksters and Wall Street or if there is hope of reclaiming a government that works for the people. That vote is on HR 459, a bill that provides for a thorough audit of the Federal Reserve.
The President, realizing that his opponent in the upcoming election became a very wealthy man because of private equity investments, is making claims that don’t add up. “If your main argument for how to grow the economy is, ‘I knew how to make a lot of money for investors,’ then you’re missing what this job is about,” he said.
Mitt Romney isn’t a bad guy; he’s just not my guy. I view Romney in much the same way I viewed 2008 GOP nominee Senator John McCain. Like the “maverick,” Romney strikes me as a placeholder. He’s someone who can believably fill the role of nominee without scaring too many people.
“Birther” is a term the mainstream media have put on those who question whether President Barack Obama was born in the United States and is, therefore, eligible to hold the office of President. How can anyone believe Obama was born anywhere but Hawaii?
Let’s offer our gratitude to Hunter Rogers. Rogers is a regular kid living a regular life — at least, he was. Then, he ran into an intellectual roadblock: a teachers’ union thug posing as an educator. Last week, he recorded a “teachable moment” and posted it on YouTube.
With the promise of “Hope” and “Change,” celebrity friends, a good Internet campaign presence, an overall campaign presence that just felt so very underdog — so grassroots — and an aura of rolled-up-sleeve-sunglass-wearing-antithesis-of-politician coolness, Obama was able to gain favor with about 66 percent of the coveted 18-year-old to 29-year-old voter bloc.
The stock market is a racket, and Wall Street is an organized crime syndicate. Last week’s initial public offering of Facebook demonstrates exactly how the deck is stacked against individuals for the benefit of the bankster mob.
Last week, an analysis by economist John Lott that appeared in the National Review (and went unremarked upon by the corporate media) revealed that Barack Obama’s 2009 bailout of the auto industry is likely one of the greatest boondoggles of the modern age.
The European Union is collapsing financially. It may also be collapsing politically. The Germans (the only EU country with a growing gross domestic product) are preaching austerity. Both Greek and French citizens have rejected calls to turn off their gravy trains.
Look no further than Republican Congressional aide Benjamin Rothenberg. On his Facebook page, Rothenberg took a gratuitous — and ungrammatical — swipe at an icon of the liberty movement, Lew Rockwell.
