Two Wolves Deciding Which Sheep is for Dinner

The real question here should be who is going to investigate Adam Schiff-for-brains and Muddy Waters for THEIR corruption and misdeeds?  They have a long history of illegal and unethical activity, but now they are in charge, so they won’t be punished for it.  They will hypocritically be punishing OTHERS for doing things far more insignificant than what they have done.  It’s called “deflection,” and a cover up.

Schiff, Waters plan joint Deutsche Bank investigation

By

Two powerful House committee chairs are planning a joint investigation into German lending giant Deutsche Bank, which is under scrutiny from Democrats over its business dealings with President Donald Trump.

House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff and Financial Services Chairwoman Maxine Waters coordinating oversight of the bank, which also faces questions about its role in money laundering schemes.

The two California Democrats have been talking about areas of interest for each committee and where there’s common ground, Schiff said in an interview.
“We’re going to work jointly,” he said. “We think we’ll be more effective doing it that way.”

The investigation into Deutsche Bank will be one of the most closely watched probes launched by the new Democratic-controlled House because it could provide a glimpse into Trump’s finances and ties abroad.

Waters, who has called for the president’s impeachment, has vowed to follow the “Trump money trail” starting with Deutsche Bank. Before she became chairwoman, she asked the bank for details on its handling of Trump’s accounts and involvement in Russian money laundering schemes.

Maxine Waters Skates Again And Democrats—Culture Of Corruption Carries On

9/24/2012

Culture Of Corruption: A House panel has cleared Rep. Maxine Waters of ethics charges after her office used its clout to bail out her husband’s bank. This is getting tiresome. Just what’s it take to remove a corrupt Democrat?

“Nothing to see here, move along” is what the House Ethics Committee effectively declared after a stalled, subpoena-blocked investigation that took three years came up empty.

But was there really nothing on Waters? The California Democrat was accused of using her position as a member of the House Financial Services Committee in 2009 to steer $12 million in bailout money to the failing Boston-based OneUnited Bank, in which her husband had substantial stakes.

The federal cash had been earmarked for solvent banks with good banking practices, yet OneUnited, which failed all such criteria, got an exemption from the FDIC accounting rules.

Maybe that’s because Treasury Department bank examiners were subject to a barrage of calls from Waters’ grandson, Mikael Moore, muscling into an operation that was supposed to be judged impartially. In the end, the bank got its cash, leaving FDIC investigators fuming about “a travesty of justice,” and Moore is likely to get off with a slap on the wrist at most.

As for Waters, she skates. “This case is also about access,” Waters said, unwittingly indicating that “access” means access to taxpayer cash, for herself.

With the ethics charge gone, Waters won’t slink off in shame, but will now fail upward, poised to assume minority leadership of the Financial Services Committee.

So much for ending the “culture of corruption,” with “the most honest, most open, most ethical Congress in history,” as Rep. Nancy Pelosi pledged on taking up the House Speaker’s gavel in 2006.

But Waters is just the latest example of how impunity has accelerated among Democrats and Congress has become an open trough. The examples are piling up:

• Back in the 1980s, Rep. Barney Frank of Massachusetts, was caught using his pull to fix his lover’s 33 parking tickets as the latter ran a gay prostitution racket out of Frank’s basement. The penalty? Promotion to the House Financial Services Committee chairmanship.

• House Ways and Means Committee chairman Charles Rangel of New York, who in 2010 was found to be in violation of House rules by shaking down public colleges for funds and evading the taxman. He got a wrist slap and still has his seat.

• Sen. Christopher Dodd of Connecticut got himself a sweetheart “VIP” loan from subprime lender Countrywide to buy himself a palatial “cottage” in Ireland. The consequences for him? None.

• Housing and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius recently violated the Hatch Act by campaigning on the job, yet skated instead of getting fired, which is the prescribed penalty.

• Attorney General Eric Holder was found to be in contempt of Congress for withholding documents on Operation Fast and Furious, yet merited President Obama’s “full confidence” last week.

Any one of these violations would get a Republican fired or forced from office. But when a Democrat self-deals, power becomes its own justification.

The Obamacar – The (anti) Midas Touch

What was Obummer saying about being responsible for the economic successes we are seeing now?  Everything Obama touch economically FAILED. 

  • He sank billions of dollars of TAXPAYER-FUNDED loans into GM, over $30 million of which they never repaid, and they are now laying off thousands of Americans after already moving sizable portions of their production overseas.
  • He laundered campaign cash by passing out billions of taxpayer dollars to donors and supporters under the guise of “shovel-ready jobs” under the stimulus, only to later admit that those jobs “weren’t so shovel ready.”  Companies like Solyndra and A123 went belly up after accepting millions of dollars that basically went into donor’s pockets.
  • He stifled the economy and businesses with thousands of pages of regulations, higher taxes, and anti-business policies.
  • The list goes on almost to infinity.

Everything this faker touched turned to LEAD.

1,063 Documented Examples of Barack Obama’s Lying, Lawbreaking, Corruption, Cronyism, Hypocrisy, Waste, Etc

The list of Obama lies, corruption, etc. is now growing so long that you need a continuous scroll to document it all, and what has been uncovered is just scratching the surface. He has so blatantly broken the law that he should have been impeached in the first year of his presidency. But he didn’t just stop with breaking the law. By giving aid, even military aid, and comfort to our enemies, he has committed treason, and he should meet the fate of a traitor.

Enjoy a little light reading in the linked pdf below. Get comfortable. It may take a while to read all of misdeeds of one Barack Hussein Obama.

Progressivism Paving the Road to Communism in America

What do you know about the communist movement and what it hopes to accomplish in America?  Maybe you’ve heard of the 10 pillars of communism.  I’ll list them here, and some ideas of how much of each pillar has been completed.

  1. Abolition of private property in land and application of all rents of land to public purposes.
    1. Nearing completion.  Liberalization of “eminent domain” and zoning regulations, Bureau of Land Management and Environmental Protection Agency oversteps of authority, and daily land/property seizures under RICO statutes.
  2. A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.
    1. Done.
  3. Abolition of all rights of inheritance.
    1. In progress.  Death/estate taxes.
  4. Confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels.
    1. Nearing completion. We call it government seizures, tax liens, “forfeiture” Public “law” 99-570 (1986); Executive order 11490, sections 1205, 2002 which gives private land to the Department of Urban Development; the imprisonment of “terrorists” and those who speak out or write against the “government” (1997 Crime/Terrorist Bill); or the IRS confiscation of property without due process.
  5. Centralization of credit in the banks of the state, by means of a national bank with state capital and an exclusive monopoly.
    1. Done. The Federal Reserve System, created by the Federal Reserve Act of Congress in 1913, is indeed such a “national bank” and it politically manipulates interest rates and holds a monopoly on legal counterfeiting in the United States. This is exactly what Marx had in mind and completely fulfills this plank, another major socialist objective. Yet, most Americans naively believe the U.S. of A. is far from a Marxist or socialist nation.  Federal bailouts of large banks further extends government control of the banking industry.
  6. Centralization of the means of communication and transport in the hands of the state.
    1. Nearly complete.  The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) regulates communication, and is making intrusive regulations to control internet and cell phone usage.  The government has also recently mandated that the release of information such as unemployment statistics will only happen on government controlled systems.  The Department of Transportation, the Interstate Commerce Commission, and the Federal Aviation Administration, various executive orders, and various state bureaucracies have a pretty tight grip on transportation, a grip which is tightening via further regulation and taxation. Don’t forget the federal postal monopoly, AMTRAK and CONRAIL — outright socialist (government-owned) enterprises.
  7. Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the state; the bringing into cultivation of waste lands, and the improvement of the soil generally in accordance with a common plan.
    1. Almost complete. The many various federal agencies such as the Department of Agriculture, the Department of Commerce and Labor, Department of Interior, the Environmental Protection Agency, Bureau of Land Management, Bureau of Reclamation, Bureau of Mines, National Park Service, and the IRS control of nearly all business through corporate regulations.  By implementing regulations and laws that favor massive agri-business companies, they are driving small farmers off their land and centralizing control of food production.
  8. Equal obligation of all to work. Establishment of industrial armies, especially for agriculture.
    1. In progress.  Government policies on debt, spending, inflation, and encouraging families to live beyond their means have over time necessitated the “two income family” to make ends meet.  At the same time “working” families are being forced to work harder, more people are being driven into government dependency.  At some point, the handouts will no longer be “free,” and if the dependent class wants to eat, they will be forced to work.
  9. Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries; gradual abolition of all the distinction between town and country by a more equable distribution of the populace over the country.
    1. In progress.  Land use planning commissions, re-zoning laws, massive government subsidized agri-business farms.
  10. Free education for all children in public schools. Abolition of children’s factory labor in its present form. Combination of education with industrial production, etc.
    1. Done.  The government has wrapped its tentacles around the public school system via the purse strings.  They mandate what will be taught and accepted, or they cut the funding.  As for  child labor, recent regulations are making it illegal for children to even work on a FAMILY FARM.

Whether or not you actually believe this or not, I encourage you to at least open your mind to the POSSIBILITY that it MIGHT be true, or at least have some merit.  Ask yourself what you can and should do in case it is true. Continue reading

Schizophrenic Bernanke Trying to Save His Legacy

Isn’t it funny, in a Greek tragic comedy sort of way, how incompetent people in positions of power whose ideology and methodology fails utterly and completely can never seem to own up to their failures, or at least just fade away and let the process of cleaning up their mess get underway?

Such is the case with Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke, or Bernyankme if you prefer. Bernanke and all of the other liberal progressives keep trumpeting that things would have been much worse if we hadn’t spent hundreds of billions, and now trillions of dollars that we didn’t have, don’t have, and will never have. Yet they make these assertions with no real data to back them up. Just ‘feelings.’

In the first article below, Bernyankme is running around trying to salvage is legacy and convince everyone what a great job he did by spending trillions and monetizing our debt, but when confronted by a college student for concrete proof and even methodology behind his decision making on the bailouts, he can’t answer the questions. Then, in the 2nd article below, he says/admits that continuing the course that he played a major part in putting us on will lead us to total economic collapse a whole lot sooner than anyone is letting on. That’s the first really honest and competent thing I’ve ever heard him say.

I’ve said it before, and now even the Fed Chair agrees with me, we hurtling headlong into a repeat of the Weimar Republic economically, and socially if we do not RADICALLY and DRASTICALLY change course NOW. Not in 5 years, not in 10 years. We don’t have that long. If Washington doesn’t stop the deficit spending NOW, put us on a course to begin paying down our debt, get out of the way and let our economy take off, most of America has not the foggiest idea how bad things are going to get.



MCKINLEY AND FITTON: Bernanke’s fairy tale recession story for kids

Records show Fed had no coherent strategy for bank bailouts

By Vern McKinley and Tom Fitton | Wednesday, April 11, 2012

It’s an oldie but a goodie for our Federal Reserve chairman. In one of his recent lectures at George Washington University (GWU), Ben S. Bernanke made the self-congratulatory assertion that the “forceful policy response” led by the Federal Reserve in 2008 helped avoid a more serious economic downturn.

The Democrat “Green” Money Laundering Operation is Falling Apart

The continuous theft of our money for these “green” handouts is nothing more than a money laundering scheme.  Obama has poured BILLIONS of taxpayer dollars into an industry that is not commercially viable, all to payback his political supporters, and launder money to the democrat party.

Solyndra grabbed headlines, but has now faded as the “mainstream” media ignores the continuing story.  Oh, yes, there is more to the Solyndra bankruptcy.  They are now handing out millions of dollars in “bonuses” to their failed executives, funded by the taxpayer supplied bailout money.

Now the rate of “green” failures is accelerating, and with them accelerating the rate at which taxpayer money disappears with ABSOLUTELY NO BENEFIT TO THE TAXPAYERS FROM WHOM IT WAS STOLEN.

And no one is doing jack squat about it.  Isn’t socialism great? At least until you run out of other people’s money.  Have you seen our national debt which is accelerating like the Millennium Falcon?  To mix metaphors, we’re heading off into deep space where no one can hear us scream…

Drip, Drip, Drip: Yet Another Green Energy Stimulus Recipient Hits the Skids (the third this week!)

by William Yeatman on January 27, 2012

in Blog

Post image for Drip, Drip, Drip: Yet Another Green Energy Stimulus Recipient Hits the Skids (the third this week!)Earlier this week, Stimulus beneficiary Evergreen Energy bit the dust. Then, Ener1, a manufacturer of batteries for electric vehicles and recipient of Stimulus largesse, filed for bankruptcy. And today, the Las Vegas Sun reports that Amonix, Inc., a manufacturer of solar panels that received $5.9 million from the Porkulus, will cut two-thirds of its workforce, about 200 employees, only seven months after opening a factory in Nevada.

I foresaw this spate of bad news last November. As I explained yesterday,

In a previous post, I compared renewable energy spending in the 2009 Stimulus to a green albatross burdening the President. I argued that Stimulus spending was inherently wasteful, because politics invariably corrupts government’s investment decisions. The result is taxpayers losses on bankrupt companies that existed only by the grace of political favoritism, a la Solyndra. I predicted the green stimulus would haunt the President, in the form of a slow drip public relations nightmare, as a litany of bad investments go belly-up in the run up to the 2012 elections.

Mr. President, are you still sure you want to “double down” on renewable energy giveaways?

Call Obama’s Bluff

I find it hard to agree more with Mr. Krauthammer on this one.  Obama has no real plan, and rejects any proposal from republicans and conservatives that actually cuts spending and works to achieve a solution that is longer term than Obama’s reelection campaign campaign in 2012.

Boehner and McConnell are talking tough, but AS USUAL are being played like fiddles, partly because of their ineptitude, and partly because I firmly believe they are both RINO’s at heart.  Boehner was an ineffective minority leader, and isn’t doing any better as majority leader.   Every time he’s forced to take a stand, HE CRIES AND CAVES IN.

Obama is lying to America about the what will happen if we hit the debt ceiling.  We have enough revenue to pay for Social Security, Medicare, the service on our debt, and the military and its pensions.  Of course Obama and the democrats would have to cut spending on other spending that isn’t quite so critical, like, say the EPA, IRS, Dept of Energy, Dept of Education, and many other worthless agencies and pork projects that aren’t giving the taxpayers an adequate return on their investment.  But Obama and the democrats won’t even DISCUSS the possibilities.  It’s “let me spend all I want, or we start starving seniors and quit paying the military.”

Republicans, you SHOULD be calling Obama’s bluff, but as a party you don’t have the spine to do it.  You are more worried about your careers and some people getting mad at you than doing the right thing for America.

So, here’s what I think will happen.  The republicans, lead by back stabbers like John McCain, Lindsey Graham”nesty”, and John Boehner, will cave in to Obama’s schemes, they will raise the the debt ceiling accompanied by basically meaningless so-called “reforms” that turn out to be worthless at reducing spending or debt, just as in the budget battle last fall, Obama and the democrats will keep spending at a record pace, credit agencies will STILL downgrade our credit rating because there will be no long term plan to fix the exploding debt, and we will hit the debt ceiling AGAIN, and with even more catastrophic, real impacts.

I want to be wrong on this. Someone please convince me that I am. Continue reading
