There can be no doubt that the stop-and-frisk actions of New York City’s police department have been hugely successful in lowering the crime rate there. So, of course, they’ve been under attack by liberal do-gooders. Sadly, this past Monday, a Federal judge ruled that they violated the Constitutional rights of minorities. Is anyone surprised?
It is really quite easy to understand why the U.S. economy is in crisis and decline. The answer is found in how we treat the heroes of the economy. I call these heroes “financial first responders.” They are the business owners, investors, job creators and taxpayers. They risk their financial lives, just as policemen and firemen risk their bodies.
President Barack Obama announced last week a list of Americans who would receive the Medal of Freedom, the highest honor bestowed to a civilian. The group included the late Democratic Senator from Hawaii, Daniel Inouye, and Oprah Winfrey.
The American narrative is quickly changing. There have long been criminality and degeneracy within our government and the corporate cartels surrounding it, but what we are witnessing today is the final step in the metamorphosis that is totalitarianism. The last stage accelerates when the average citizen is not just complicit in the deeds of devils, but when he becomes a devil himself.
It is certain that Federal Reserve Chairman Helicopter Ben Bernanke was relieved last month when he testified before Congress and his longtime antagonist, Congressman Ron Paul, wasn’t present. Bernanke’s statement that “… nobody really understands gold prices, and I don’t pretend to understand them either” went unchallenged.
Why, when public sentiment is shifting in their favor, do Republicans form a circular firing squad and begin taking pot shots at each other? Let’s begin the sad survey with New Jersey Governor Chris Christie’s needless denunciation of the “dangerous” tilt toward libertarianism represented by Rand Paul, the junior Senator from Kentucky.
I’ve predicted disaster for the U.S. economy since the day of Barack Obama’s election in 2008. Now, the results are in. The picture is grim. Here are some frightening economic numbers to think about the next time the lying, manipulating mainstream media tells you that we are in “recovery.”
The United States continues to spend billions of dollars in Muslim kingdoms that, in turn, spend money to buy off al-Qaida. Better to pump up Islamic extremists than to trust Canadians, whom we fought in 1812.
Welcome to the wacky world of 2013, where bad financial news is met with the cheers of investors who believe stimulus will last forever, where foreign investors dump the U.S. dollar in bilateral trade while mainstream dupes argue that the greenback is invincible, and where everyone seems to be buying precious metals yet the official market value continues to plunge.
Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) now infest almost everything we consume. Yet, amazingly, most Americans don’t even realize they eat GMO food at just about every meal. That’s because they are deceptively hidden in the list of ingredients.
