Isn’t it a funny thing. Not funny ha-ha, but funny interesting, that government hacks on both sides have figured out the formula behind the acquisition of power.
You can do it the old fashioned way, by slowly and methodically winning the hearts and minds of the voting public. But that’s hard, time consuming, and requires actual ideas and ideals.
Rather, as they’ve discovered relatively recently, you can grab power from the people and other branches of government by two means. You can war-game a number of scenarios, that when disaster-A befalls us, you do B to acquire power and control. If it’s C, you do D and so on. That way you’ll be prepared and ready to take advantage of whatever crisis arises. The only downfall to this is that you can’t really predict when the crisis will hit, so you have to be patient. read more

If you’re a police officer and anywhere close to retirement, you may want to consider doing so – retiring that is. You see, whether you realize it yet or not, you’re being hunted – witch-hunted.
Let me rephrase that. Liberals hate to lose. They can’t or won’t accept it as a part of life, as we do. Not that conservatives enjoy losing either, but we also know we can’t win them all.
Liberals, particularly radicals, never accept defeat, and the radical leftist Holder Justice Department cannot let stand the injustice perpetrated in Ferguson. In their minds, and I’ll bet in the mind of our illustrious leader, officer Wilson literally got away with cold-blooded murder. Evidence be damned, this was a race motivated hate crime.
So now Holder will be looking for another fall guy cracker. He’ll couch it in terms of helping law enforcement, but they’ll be gearing up cops with cameras and what ever else they can find to pin a race-based murder rap on some unsuspecting white police officer. read more
Washington is engaged in a massive “campaign” to make Americans believe the economy is in recovery. But in reality the United States is at the brink of a devastating economic crash that will cause catastrophic market losses and impoverish millions.
That’s according to Peter Schiff, the best-selling author and CEO of Euro Pacific Capital, who delivered his frightening warning to investors in a recent interview on CCTV.
“The problem with politicians is they don’t want to level with the voters and tell them how bad the economy really is and what the cure for the disease is,” Schiff said.
The “disease” Schiff refers to is a toxic combination of our massive $16.4 trillion debt and the Fed’s continued devaluing of the dollar through its controversial 7-year long “easing” program.
The Fed is currently purchasing $85 billion a month in Treasury and mortgage bonds, a form of stimulus.
President Obama and like-minded politicians claim this stimulus has pushed the economy forward, boosting GDP and keeping inflation low.
But Schiff says “it’s another lie.”
In fact, according to Schiff, the government has done nothing more than create a “phony” economy that is “completely dependent on the ability to borrow more money that we can’t pay back.”
“The Fed knows that the U.S. economy is not recovering,” Schiff said. “It simply is being kept from collapse by artificially low interest rates and quantitative easing. As that support goes, the economy will implode.”
