Candid Treason

The Excavator
Nov 15, 2010

Last week, the new House Majority Leader Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Va.) met with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in New York City to privately discuss U.S. sanctions against Iran, U.S.-Palestinian relations, the United Nations, the Republican smackdown in the recent election, and various subjects dealing with Israel and America’s special relationship. Laura Rozen of Politico reported on the meeting, writing:

Regarding the midterms, Cantor may have given Netanyahu some reason to stand firm against the American administration.”Eric stressed that the new Republican majority will serve as a check on the Administration and what has been, up until this point, one party rule in Washington,” the readout continued. “He made clear that the Republican majority understands the special relationship between Israel and the United States, and that the security of each nation is reliant upon the other.”

Veteran observer of U.S.-Israeli relations Ron Kampeas said he found that statement “an eyebrow-raiser.”

“I can’t remember an opposition leader telling a foreign leader, in a personal meeting, that he would side, as a policy, with that leader against the president,” Kampeas wrote at JTA’s blog — an interpretation which Cantor’s office later disputed to Kampeas.

Cantor’s comments reflect either a deep naivety, or a new found arrogance that came with the Republican victory less than two weeks ago.

Is he at all aware that it is an act of treason to meet with a foreign head of state as a senior government official in your own country, and candidly expressing your loyalty to him and his state’s aims instead of siding with your own leader and your own country? Maybe he knows what he did is national sabotage, but he likes the idea of being hanged. Or maybe he has no respect for the American state at all. He could be an anarchist in that way. Or he could just be a filthy traitor. I guess time will reveal such questions.

But I’m not interested in what happens later in the historical drama that’s unfolding. I’m interested in right now, in this moment in time. The lack of outrage over this story is unsettling. It is another reason why the mainstream media in the United States is losing respect, and popularity.



The only time that anyone should open up the New York Times, The Washington Post, or any other mainstream newspaper is when there is dog shit to be picked up.

Silence by the media on important issues is the most damaging fact of life today. Most journalists and pundits don’t seem to be interested that it is a treasonable offense when an elected government official crosses the line from supporting Israel, which is good, to supporting Israel over America. There is a clear difference between the two positions. If Cantor thinks that Israel and America are so attached that both nations should always be mentioned in the same sentence in a discussion about American foreign policy then he is either deluded, or he knows the difference but he is a traitor. There is no other way to put it. As a statesmen you can’t lose sight of your own state’s interests, which are different from every other state and need to be defended. If you become the lapdog, or a spy for another state, then naturally you must be strung up.

In Cantor’s political cosmology Israel is the center of the universe, not America. That’s unfortunate because America deserves better. No nation should tolerate traitors, ever. Traitors represent a direct danger to the freedoms and well-being of a political community, or any community. That’s why it is commonly said that the devil roams like a king in the house of treason, or something to that effect. In all cultures the traitor is viewed as a figure worst than the murderer, and the rapist, because the actions of the traitor impacts a community in a similar way as the actions of a murderer or a rapist impacts a person but with graver consequences.

If the charge of traitor against Cantor doesn’t stick, then surely he is a puppet.

Let’s unpack some of his comments that are in the quote above. He says that Washington has suffered from “one party rule” in the last two years, but when it comes to the question of Israel, most congressmen, Democrats and Republicans alike, are on board with Israel’s actions 100 percent of the time. You can read that fact whichever way you like, but the point is that Israel benefits greatly from one party rule in America, which is rule by the Republicrat party. As Glenn Greenwald wrote in his critique of Cantor’s meeting:

And for the past two years, leading Democrats who would never dare publicly criticize Obama for anything have bitterly and publicly denounced him for the crime of opposing Israeli policy. And, of course, there is far greater unity in the U.S. Congress for Israeli wars than for America’s own wars; that’s just a fact.

Another thing that Cantor said that is flat out not true is that “the security of each nation is reliant upon the other.” Try telling America’s Marines and America’s Air Force that America’s security depends on the cooperation of Israel. LOL. What a ridiculous statement by Cantor. Did he connect the interests of both nations so close together while knowing deep down that it is in fact not the case, or does he really believe that the big giant requires the help of the small mouse?

America doesn’t need Israel, in fact, America’s security would improve tremendously if it acted equally fair to all sides in the region. In the last two years, Israel has exposed its lack of willingness to create a resolution by excessively constructing new settlements that further derails the peace process, and prolongs the Israel-Palestine conflict, which reflects badly on American diplomacy, and ultimately leads to violent responses against the U.S. for not forcing Israel to come to the table without any hidden agenda. Greenwald addresses this point in his article, saying:

What makes Cantor’s behavior all the more remarkable is that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict which the Obama administration is ostensibly attempting to resolve is, as Gen. David Petraeus himself pointed out, a direct threat to U.S. interests and security. But no matter; those concerns are plainly not Cantor’s priority.

Men like Cantor are not fit to lead the great country of America. Neither are Bush, Reagan, Clinton and Obama exemplary of American humanity and genius. These leaders represent the thin layer of scum atop American society, which is noble and good.

It is understandable why scum rises to the top in modern U.S. politics. When traitors rule at the very top in a society they want to be surrounded with similar personalities, so they help like-minded traitors with no conscience to rise to the top along with them. That’s why George H.W. Bush selected political strategist Lee Atwater as his campaign manager during the 1988 presidential election. He knew that Atwater had a dark soul, and a cold heart, and didn’t mind playing the role of the trickster in U.S. politics.

Read David Terrenoire’s post from 2008 about Atwater and the legacy of bullshit that he left behind:

This guy might be the King of Bullshit. He’s Lee Atwater, the amoral, cold-blooded slime weasel who birthed today’s politics of partisan crap. He proved that if you were willing to say anything about your opponent, you could win elections. It was all bullshit. He knew it, his clients knew it. And it didn’t matter.

He ruined people’s lives and reputations and was rewarded handsomely by his friends in the GOP. If you like the way American politics is muddied by innuendo, gossip, blatant untruths and despicable character assassination, thank Atwater. He was a charmer and pure-D, triple-distilled bullshit from the hair on his head to the shine on his shoes.

Karl Rove was Atwater’s protege. Like the master, the student continued the destruction of America. But Rove is not the problem. And neither was Atwater. They are just intelligent but cold-blooded individuals who saw through the phoniness of American democracy, and the unreality of politics, and then manipulated it even more to secure electoral victories for their political pals.

Back to Cantor. His comments will be revisited in the future because they reveal an emerging political crisis in America that is becoming apparent to more and more people. It is common knowledge that America’s political establishment totally betrayed the American people, and destroyed the country.

You wouldn’t know it if you watched Bush’s recent interviews on television, but there is indeed a deep political crisis that originates from the heart of the American political system. Despite his rebranding campaign and new book, people have not forgotten that the Bush administration unleashed the angels of death, and the gods of chaos into the world. And they have not went away because justice must be done first.

Bush believes he will not face justice. He knows that he committed war crimes, but he doesn’t care. He doesn’t intent to fool himself when he says that waterboarding isn’t torture when it is, or that torture saved American lives when it didn’t, but the public. He understands that playing the fool in public is politically smart. And the reason he is so arrogant about his atrocious record as President is because “the bigger the lie the bigger the liar,” and he told some pretty big lies. He will not tell the truth to the public unless a criminal case is brought against him. It is naive to expect him to tell all on Oprah. If he admits any new revelations, it will happen in a criminal court, not in a book.

Cantor probably learned a lot from Bush, like how to sell criminal wars, how to help criminal banks get away with fraud, and how to screw the American people by any means necessary. But Cantor siding with the Israeli PM over the U.S. President is nothing in comparison to the state terrorism and high treason that’s been committed by high-level government officials in America. That’s the truth that a lot of people in the media are hiding from. But I can’t fault them because these are crimes of such a historical magnitude that only apocalyptic events can shake people out of their sleep, and cause them to face reality as it is, not what they’ve been led to believe it is by wolves dressed as sheep.

When America’s political crisis is seen for what it actually is, you quickly realize that pitchforks won’t save America, guillotines will. Last week, the new House Majority Leader Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Va.) met with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in New York City to privately discuss U.S. sanctions against Iran, U.S.-Palestinian relations, the United Nations, the Republican smackdown in the recent election, and various subjects dealing with Israel and America’s special relationship.

Military spending, collapse of US empire

Russia Today
Nov 14, 2010

The military industrial complex continues to rev its engine even as the US economy continues to struggle. Pro-defense Republicans are already shouting to use their party’s newfound legislative power to boost the Pentagon budget. Paul Craig Roberts points out that the government only cares about the military industrial complex and lacks compassion for its people.

US Lost Every Round At G20 Meeting


Elaine Meinel Supkis

My son was reminiscing last night at dinner, the 1999 Seattle event which was the first US riot against ‘globalisation‘. He was working in the center of the city and got tangled up in the riots trying to get to and from his job. Seattle’s WTO riots were loud – and ineffective mostly because the left is very divided on this issue due to a long, long history going back to Marx about ‘the International’. Ever since Seattle, the W20 leaders had to hold their conspiratorial meetings in remote places or where there is severe police state suppression. Meanwhile, they boast that their policies are popular and helping the greater mass of humanity.

Of course, if this were true, the meetings of these desperate rulers would be quite popular and people would cheer instead of scream! There would be, by definition, no riots at all. The riots in 1999 were portrayed by our media which is nearly 100% pro-‘free trade’, as the lunatic fringe acting up and scaring everyone. But back then, the dire downside of free trade was barely showing thanks to easy credit handed out to Americans like candy on Halloween.

Now that we have lost many, many millions of jobs and some of our biggest cities lie literally in ruins, the limited support for free trade has vanished. But this doesn’t seem to be getting through to the leaders here because of the media which has utterly disconnected our discontent from being aired in public and riots no longer happen here simply because none of our leaders dare to have any G20 meetings here or to go around talking about free trade, either!

Instead, they talk about how we will grow our exports to the point that all Americans will have jobs making stuff for the Chinese or Vietnamese or Indians or Germans or…whoever. This silly plan has totally backfired for 35 years yet our media won’t say this. Instead, anyone who explains how our trade deficit is, along side our military overspending and over-expansion overseas, the root cause of our economic malaise here at home is mocked as being insane or stupid. The media and political chorus for free trade is coupled with naked fear: it s now too obvious that free trade has destroyed our economy and now the political and media elites who go to secret Bilderberg meetings overseas to plot all of this, are running scared.

Obama is like Captain Ahab sailing our leaky ship, the Pequod around the world seeking Moby Dick: Obama Seeks Rebound at APEC Forum in Yokohama – NYTimes.com

President Obama, looking to wrap up his sometimes rocky economic tour of Asia on a high note, said Saturday that he made “no apologies for doing whatever I can” to bring jobs to the United States. And he vowed to pursue trade partnerships and American investment in the region so that he could put the United States back on a path of “discovering, creating and building the products that are sold all over the world.”

It should be painfully obvious to even idiots like Obama that Asia isn’t as stupid as the US. They know that power and wealth comes from running trade surpluses and they fight with each other day and night to grab even a tiny advantage with each other and the last thing they will ever do is to allow the US to have any advantages at all. We are the cash cow for them and they intend to milk us. If we fight off this, they will try to make hamburger of us. There is nothing friendly in all of this.

This is a dog-eat-dog world and we better cease being a cow and become a dog and the best way for us to fight this isn’t to go over there and try to pry our money out of their hot little hands but to stay home and lock the front and back doors and force them to do business our way, not their way.

This means no more super rich Americans investing in Asia. They must invest at home again! Duh. Our super rich invest more overseas than at home at this point! So why is Bilderberg Obama, CFR Obama seeking to increase US investments in Asia? Talk about nuts!

….And while he told reporters before leaving Washington that his relationship with the American people had gotten “rockier and tougher” over time, he said in Seoul that his relations with foreign leaders had actually grown stronger since he took office.

Yeah! We may end up hating him but foreign rulers and leaders who are reaming us out in trade love this guy! Well, like all our previous Presidents who ran off to aliens to get their bribes (most famously, Reagan and Bill Clinton got to be millionaires this way!) Obama didn’t come into office rich but he knows from the above examples that if he is a good little lad, our dire trade rivals will richly reward him. I will note that to this day, the Republicans adore the traitor, Reagan and the Democrats often adore their own traitor, Bill C. This goes to show that the US public cannot connect the bribing of our own ‘leaders’ with the horrors of free trade and our looming bankruptcy.

“When I first came into office, people might have been interested in more photo ops because there had been a lot of hoopla surrounding my election,” Mr. Obama said, adding that he now had a “genuine friendship” with a raft of world leaders. Still, he said, “That doesn’t mean there aren’t going to be differences.”

Actually, there are no differences. That is, our dire rivals in trade (we have NO ALLIES) want us to continue to let them ravage the US, suck out our jobs, capital base and ownership of our own systems and lands and they will reward traitors who help them do this. And Obama’s goal is to ape Bill Clinton and stay in power in one way or another while working for alien powers. So he has to walk very carefully and pretend he is creating jobs at home when every single action he takes and every single word he utters is an open attack on the American people. Not that we have any hope of stopping this by political action at home. The very alarmed NYT has run three anti-free trade editorials this year. Of course, every week, they publish a dozen or more pro-free trade articles but it is interesting that they have given up on the total blanket suppression of resistance to the present system: Throwing Free Trade Overboard – NYTimes.com Robert E. Lighthizer, a lawyer, was a deputy trade representative in the Reagan administration.

Our trade deficit in manufactured goods was about $4.3 trillion during the last decade, and the country lost some 5.6 million manufacturing jobs….Indeed, the value of foreign investments in the United States now exceeds the value of American investments abroad by $2.74 trillion, and China alone has roughly $2.5 trillion in foreign currency reserves, primarily dollars.

DESPITE his failure to conclude a trade deal with South Korea this week, President Obama has put free trade at the top of his agenda. That’s in part because the White House and the newly empowered Republican leadership see it as one of the few places where they can work together.

These traitors know who is boss: the entities that literally own our debts, our property and our political system via bribes. There are many ways to bribe someone and the best of all is to have them retire and then work for the very same foreign powers that pay campaign donations and who hire these same traitors to openly lobby for foreign interests. It is no surprise to see Obama and the GOP hand out the recent deficit commission report that is totally mute about foreign trade but wishes to fix our finances by wiping out all social services, remove the mortgage deduction, beggar doctors and in general, turn us back into poor peasants. While cutting corporate taxes and not taxing foreign profits, etc.

Namely, Obama and the GOP are cooperating on this massive project, the looting of the American people. What if we elected Hilary Clinton? Would she do this too?

The answer is obvious: of course! There was no Ross Perot running for President and Ron Paul gave up without a fight. And virtually no one is allowed to utter the words, ‘Tariffs and barriers’ in public. We are continued to be told that tariffs and barriers, not a huge credit bubble, caused the Great Depression.

But those expectations could be upset by an unexpected force: the Tea Party. Strangely, for a movement named after an 18th-century protest against import levies, Tea Partyers are largely skeptical about free trade’s benefits – according to a recent poll by NBC and The Wall Street Journal, 61 percent of Tea Party sympathizers believe it has hurt the United States….

So far, I haven’t noticed any smidgen of anti-free trade talk from the leaders of the Tea Party. The Tea Party was launched by Ron Paul supporters but we don’t see much of him involved in the evolution of this party. Instead, the Free Trade cookie kook, Palin, set the agenda and so in this election very precious few Tea Party candidates even mentioned free trade and I swear, not one of these said we should pay for our very expensive government by taxing imports. The one thing all of our dire trade rivals fear the most.

….Among Republicans, not one major elected figure expresses the skepticism toward free trade held by over three-fifths of Tea Partyers. In the face of soaring trade deficits and talk of American decline, the Tea Party may ask whether this is yet another area where the establishment has simply gotten it wrong.

In short, the apparent contradiction between the Tea Party’s fiscal conservatism and its skepticism about free trade may not be a contradiction at all. If the Tea Party continues to influence the Republican agenda, it may not only spell bad news for the South Korea free trade agreement – it could also mean a fundamental reorientation of our country’s attitude toward trade and globalization.

This Reagan official is one of many former Reaganites who are switching sides, so to speak. That is, they are running away from their own personal and real responsibility for launching this hideous mess and they now regret their actions but won’t talk about how their evil boss created this monster in the first place. That is, cutting taxes while expanding the trade deficit and military spending and making fun of Jimmy Carter who tried to cut the trade deficit, stop inflation and restrict military growth. I said back then, Carter was right and he is right today and the Bilderberg gang hates his guts, foreign leaders used to fear his visits and the American people make fun of him because the Zionist media hates him and attacks him or worse, ignores him. Note how he is no longer in the news. He is, like myself, now totally invisible. Here are some interesting graphs from CNN: G-20: The new global economy – CNNMoney.com

I find it nearly totally laughable imagining that ZIRP USA will nearly double our GDP. Double our national debt, yes. Double our GDP, not even slightly a chance of this happening. I do see the ‘trillions of dollars’ thing growing but this is due entirely to Quantitative Easing erasing the value of the dollar, not our economy growing. Actually, an accurate scale would be, China’s growth=US debt so our GDP is growing mainly from all the other nations on this graph exporting to the US. The reason the creators of this graph show us growing from $10 trillion to $18 trillion is due to an assumption that the US will be allowed to continue to consume the goods flowing out of Brazil, India, France, Germany, Japan and China!

Here is the scarier rate of growth graph. Note that when China was one tenth of the US economy in 2000 when Bush was installed by the Supreme Court and cut taxes, the graph assumes in 2015, China’s GDP will be 60% of the US GDP. Note how this graph assumes China’s growth rate will be even higher than the 2000 rate at a sizzling rate of nearly 10% per year whereas the US rate will be much, much lower. Worse, most of our growth will be in consuming foreign goods including OPEC oil.

In Professor Kennedy’s prescient book, ‘The Rise and Fall of the Great Powers‘ he discusses how power is based mainly, since the Industrial Revolution, on the industrial base of production and the RATE of growth is of highest importance. Empires that ran their systems based on debt always declined even as they win individual battles or spats or won diplomatic struggles if their industrial base was ravaged by imports while the tax burden grew ever greater.

Even if the taxes were based on very cheap credit, the gross overall size of these future obligations meant the ability to raise taxes during inevitable wars would vanish and the empire would then have to go outwards to seek funds from foreign powers and thus, lose sovereignty. And the US is following exactly this track and is going bankrupt just like all previous empires. That is, we learned absolutely nothing from a very obvious history that is easy to grasp.

Back to the G20 meetings which can’t be held here in the US: G20 pledge to avoid currency war gets lukewarm reception

The G20 summit concluded this morning after failing to tackle growing concerns that currency wars between Washington and Beijing will undermine hard-won stability in the global economy….In the final statement of the summit, the group’s fifth since the financial crisis plunged the world into recession in 2008, the leaders vowed to move towards market-determined exchange rates and shun competitive devaluations.

In a departure from earlier statements, the G20 said it would allow emerging market countries with “adequate reserves and increasingly overvalued flexible exchange rates” to use “carefully designed macro-prudential measures”….”This hasn’t been a love-fest,” an official who participated in the negotiations said.

In other words, the Japanese system of holding huge reserves in their FOREX accounts will continue unabated. The ‘carefully designed macro-prudential measures’ seems to be a new fancy way of saying, ‘Quantitative Easing’. Which is the least prudent thing on earth, of course. It is totally reckless. It is playing with one of the most dangerous of the Cave of Wealth and Death’s goddesses: Inflation. She is a total terror because unlike her sister, Depression, Infinity kills money. Depression doesn’t kill money, it makes money more valuable. But people dislike this because it means no easy loans and rising profits. So they want Inflation instead only she is a hungry beast and easily runs out of control due to a simple human trait: greed.

Once the greedy little banking gnomes realize they can simply print money and keep most of it, they do this. To infinity. They can’t stop! This is why we had a gold standard: to prevent paper money from running suddenly to infinity. Without exception, EVERY government that runs a purely paper money system lurches into destruction due to this temptation to simply print up endless amounts of cash. I will note that many Americans are prey to this sort of delusional thinking that we can have a paper money system and no inflation. This is humanly impossible. We can’t help it: easy money creation always leads to reckless money creation and thus, the death of the currency. Always.

A very, very interesting and dangerous thing has happened in the diplomatic realm during this latest G20 meeting. Germany found itself entirely and totally on the side of China, Russia. This is a very significant change and it has been in the making for quite a while. I mentioned this movement in the past and predicted that Germany would turn from the West and look to the more active East and now this is out in the open: The World from Berlin: ‘G-20 Solidarity Is Crumbling’ – SPIEGEL ONLINE – News – International

The left-leaning Berliner Zeitung writes:

“Currency wars, trade barriers and capital controls are leading to fears of a repeat of the 1930s, when national egotism ruined the world economy. The solidarity (of the G-20 countries) is crumbling. Some have even written off the G-20 because of growing tension in the group. But it’s too early for that.”

The center-left Süddeutsche Zeitung writes:

“German exporters are not to blame for the US trade and budget deficits – but they have profited from them. In this regard, the latest triumphs of the German economy are in part borrowed successes. An export surplus of 6 percent of gross domestic product, such as achieved by Germany in 2010, is not sustainable. The debts of one are the assets of another. The G-20 had essentially set itself the task of dismantling these global imbalances, but it hasn’t accomplished this.”

The center-right Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung writes:

“Washington may have insisted that it is interested in a strong dollar but even its closest partners don’t really trust these words.”

The Financial Times Deutschland writes:

“Once it would have been a scandal. No German chancellor would have allied with China, particularly against the US, prior to an important summit without provoking an outcry from the trans-Atlantic lobby. They would have warned about a break with Germany’s most important ally. Merkel is acting as always: pragmatically. In order to deflect international annoyance over the German trade surplus, she has chimed in with growing criticism of the American money printing machine. Although tactically canny, the chancellor will have to watch out that she doesn’t get on the wrong track.”

The left-leaning Die Tageszeitung writes:

“(Protectionism) doesn’t look like it used to, when nations used to place a cap on foreign imports with high tariffs. Today governments are trying to leverage their own industrial competitive advantages in another way. They are keeping their currencies, and therefore the prices of their exports, low. Or they ensure unbeatably low prices with the help of low labor costs. The latter is the German way. Since Chancellor Gerhard Schröder, a low wage sector has been consciously nurtured. Temporary work, short-term contracts and the threat of the rapid descent into Hartz IV unemployment benefits have contributed to every demand for higher wages being nipped in the bud. The consequence has been that real wages – that which remains after inflation has been taken into account – have shrunk year on year. That was just fine by the business sector. While wages and prices rose abroad, German companies were able to throw their goods to the market at dumping prices. The Chinese government has followed the same strategy – with the difference that they have kept export prices low not by low wages but by currency dumping. It’s a subtle difference for the German government: The message is that the German surplus is good because it is based on a competitive advantage whereas the Chinese surplus not good because it has been achieved through unfair means.”

At least the German media has a very realistic discussion of the meaning of free trade, the effects and the truth about the divisions in the G20 system which obviously has the deficit raddled US and UK on one side and all the much smarter nations on the exact opposite side wanting to keep the status quo and fearful that it will collapse.

One warning here: China intends to have it eventually collapse. They know the US is a black hole and will implode and the only question is, how strong will China be when this happens? China feels they are not quite ready for this yet and this is why they continue to let things go for the time being even though they can already bankrupt us by suddenly disgorging $2.5 trillion in FOREX dollars and slam US bond markets by suddenly selling off their US debt holdings.

The key thing here is, EVERY world leader knows this! Every last one of them. They are all hoping the US public won’t know this until it is too late. I have been yelling myself hoarse about this since Reagan’s day and obviously, we fell into the trap. Way back when Reagan was President, I told the State Department and the CIA that the Chinese have figured out capitalism and they have this funky 50 Year Plan and I told them the details of this plan and…was brushed aside as a lunatic even though the State Department asked me to host the Chinese leaders and teach them about the glories of capitalism in the first place!!!

Meanwhile, the very smart leader who is not a traitor to his people used the G20 meetings to cement relations with a most interesting neighbor, Russia: Xinhua Chinese, Russian presidents meet in Seoul on cooperation

Medvedev agreed with Hu’s positions, saying that the BRIC countries (Brazil, Russia, India and China) have made important contributions to reform of the international monetary system. He said Russia is ready to cooperate closely with China within the frameworks of BRIC and G20 and continue to advance reform of the international monetary system and strengthening international financial supervision.

Hu said China is ready to work with Russia to nudge the G20 Seoul summit to reinforce the momentum in the world economy’s recovery, advance reform of the international financial system, push for the resolution of unbalanced growth in the South and North and work for comprehensive and balanced results of the Doha round of talks. The presidents agreed to strengthen bilateral cooperation in the regional and international organizations of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum, the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) and BRIC countries.

The US loves to pretend we lead the world. But note how the rest of the world is reorganizing itself along new economic relations positions. The US is viewed as a dead buffalo being eaten by scavengers. Instead of viewed as the model to copy, we are viewed as the thing to avoid copying! This is very significant and has been the case since Reagan sold his soul to the Japanese for $2.5 million.

Preening ourselves as the ideal the world wishes to emulate continues even as we are viewed more and more as an out of control military giant floundering about in Muslim countries, bleeding to death a la Soviet Union. Our famed civil rights are gone, replaced by torture, abuse, theft and using assassins a la Israel. Indeed, the only country that emulates us is Israel. And the Jews there and here at home are using this as a tool to loot the country which is why the deficit commission wants to cut foreign aid but the AIPAC people are right now scheming with Congress to move all the money flowing to Israel from the foreign aid section to our DOMESTIC BUDGET section!

Yikes! Fortunately, the Chinese haven’t copied Israel in this matter. But the Japanese wish they could do this. Too late for them. Though I wouldn’t put it past them to try to do this. No, we will cut aid to Haiti and Africa instead. Chinese president meets leaders on sidelines of G20 summit

Welcoming President Hu, South Korean President Lee Myung-bak said he believed China would play an important role in promoting international economic cooperation within the G-20 framework….

Hu stressed that China and South Korea are important neighbors and partners and that China is willing to work with South Korea to advance the bilateral strategic partnership into a comprehensive one. Hu said China has always supported the improvement of relations between the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and South Korea. “China is willing to play a constructive role in this regard,” he said.

China has been kissing up to South Korea a lot and has been interested in being the power broker between North and South Korea. The US has been basically pushed aside in this matter. South Korea still uses our military as its cat’s paw in all of this. The Japanese would dearly love to have Korea on their own side against China but won’t pay WWII reparations to Korea and there is still lots of bad blood between them because of this.

Meanwhile, in dying Europe: Britain calls for calm over Ireland bail-out – World Politics, World – The Independent

There had been concern in the markets over German moves to force private investors to bear a share of the burden in future bail-outs of countries in fiscal crisis.

HAHAHA…the banking gnomes of London hate this German solution. Have them pay for this mess they created? No way in hell. They want to be bailed out, damn it. Since the US and England are both run by elites who are traitors, they see nothing of hammering the populace to force them to pay for the banking messes while the elites continue to eat caviar and drink 100 year old fine French wines.

Here is the NYT talking about how we are supposed to eat cake while starving to death: Taking Aim at the Mortgage Tax Break

A presidential commission’s proposal to end the mortgage tax break, a very sacred cow, seeks to emphasize the deficit’s severity to the middle class.

Now, the GOP has run exclusively on tax cuts. This is the Reagan machine! The vast bulk of tax cuts, thanks to Bush Jr, accrue on the upper 1% of tax payers who are the very, very rich. Their wealth has exploded since Bush did this and they intend to move heaven and earth to keep their tax cuts. So Obama has retreated on removing the disastrous Bush tax cuts and instead, the bulk of the tax burden will slam down on the middle middle class.

Of course, the middle class has lived in La La Land because the overspending has been shipped to China and other trade rivals. Interest rates fell even as we took on oodles of debt and debased the dollar. And now our Fed is trying very hard to debase the dollar…FOR FREE TRADE! Instead of imposing tariffs and enriching the government, the Fed is beggaring savers here by ruining our money. All in the hopes of selling stuff to the Chinese who don’t want to buy our stuff any more than the Japanese want to buy our stuff.

I hope the deficit commission does wake up the middle class. SOMEONE HAS TO BE TAXED! There is no escaping this reality. The only question is, who? My answer is very simple: tax imports and tax profits flowing out of our country. Will we wait passively until 100% of the profits from our economy flow overseas before doing this? How insane is that! It is already a very dire 50%!

So, we will pay taxes on our mortgage debts and lose our homes to the banks and look at our model, the country we are emulating in all ways (that is, falling into debt while futilely trying to run a global empire): A third of Britain STILL belongs to the aristocracy | Mail Online

Their assets account for 20million out of Britain’s 60million acres of land, and the researchers estimate that the vast majority is actually owned by a wealthy core of just 1,200 aristocrats and their relatives.

Well off: The Duke of Westminster has a property portfolio totalling around £6billion

The top ten individual biggest owners control a staggering total of more than a million acres between them…. The top private landowner, not just in Britain but Europe, is the Duke of Buccleuch and Queensbury, whose four sumptuous estates cover 240,000 acres in England and Scotland. …Yet all are dwarfed by the incredible reach of corporate land-ownership, which barely existed 100 years ago.

And this is our Buccleuchian fate! We never really had a revolution as far as land is concerned. The slave estates flourished after the Revolution. The land was redistributed by stealing it from the natives. Now, it is being removed entirely from our own hands and we will end up like England. In more ways than one. England, after all, also has not had a real revolution where heads literally roll.

And our attempt at imposing a UK/US ‘democracy’ on Iraq has collapsed in a flurry of bomb attacks and a sharp rise in ethnic/religious warfare: A day after Iraq’s political breakthrough, bloc bolts parliament. We are being drained dry by Iraq and Afghanistan just as Bin Laden planned and our CIA who thought they were very clever in manipulating bin Laden are now being hoist by their own foolish petard (this is an old phrase dating back to the dawn of modern warfare when bombs were made that would explode at a gate of a castle but these often blew up on the soldiers placing the bombs at the gates, thus, ‘hoisting’ them into the air in many pieces).

When The Collapse Comes, Will FEMA Camps Look Like Club Med?

Nov 15, 2010

The collapse of American society occurs in early 2011.  The system was fundamentally headed toward this stunning unraveling for decades, but it took a multi-city nuclear “terror” attack on American soil to plunge the system into chaos.

Food, fuel, and medicine supply lines disappeared overnight and money quickly became useless.  It was every man for himself and there was little the government could do to stem the flow of anarchy and looting in the streets.

Roving gangs of armed thugs began to stalk suburban streets, ransacking homes for rations.  It is a time where everyone is gripped by fear and uncertainty.  Communications are temporarily jammed, forcing those with electricity or battery radios to be glued to emergency broadcast signals.  Reports of more bombs and street violence fill the airwaves.

You’ve just finished the last of your canned goods, water is no longer coming out of your tap, and the batteries are getting low in your car as you huddle to listen to the radio, refusing to turn it off for fear of missing important instructions.  You gaze into your family’s terrified eyes and contemplate your dismal options.

The government announces one-time sweeps of neighborhoods to “rescue” desperate citizens from the anarchy and bring them to gathering centers or camps where they will be guaranteed food and security.  You’ve read articles and have seen movies about the nefarious nature of FEMA camps being described as prison internment camps — and you remember post-Katrina New Orleans — but what choice do you have?

You’ve exhausted your supplies, most of your neighbors already ran for the hills to stay with their extended family.  Now, you begin to hear the rumbling patrols of bandits coming up your street smashing into your neighbors’ homes. Just then you hear a government chopper marking its landing.  The bandits duck and hide when they hear the helicopter, and the National Guard soldiers call out for survivors over the loudspeaker . . . .


You feel relieved to be on the chopper safe and sound with your family and a few precious belongings.  You think to yourself, “This won’t be so bad. Heck, they may even have TV to watch all the news of the unfolding chaos in safety, and at least we can use a toilet that flushes.”  Upon arrival, you learn that the camps will be on lockdown 24/7 for the inhabitants’ protection  – at least until the tension dissipates.

Nonetheless, your family is grateful to cram into one room with cots to bunk on, one chest to store your personal items, three square meals a day, and dorm-style bathrooms to share with floor mates.  You’re happy to be assigned a job to feel useful during this time of crisis and to occupy your mind.  It’s also nice to have the support and companionship of other refugees, and you scarcely have time or energy to reflect on the prison-like rules in the complex.

As time progresses, more people are rescued to the camp and a functioning mini-community takes form, all under the watchful eyes of armed soldiers.  The more time that passes, the more that free-thinking inhabitants begin to question how the government is still able to get food to the camps when there is such overwhelming disruption still displayed on the TV.

Realizing that food is still being grown and processed somewhere, it appears that it must be calm and tranquil somewhere.  You begin to imagine beautiful farms with open corn fields, vegetable gardens, fresh milk, and swallows in the barn.  Suddenly, you remember what it’s like to be a free human being where strenuous work on the farm to achieve self-sufficiency seems far more appealing than the strictly enforced rules and menial tasks at the compound.  You decide to pack the family to leave the compound and brave the wild unknown in search of independence.

However, the warden of the compound refuses to allow you to leave, as he’s still convinced that it is far too dangerous to let anyone except armed soldiers to go off campus under his watch.  He claims that other camps have allowed people leave only to find them slaughtered a day or two later.

Others begin to question their freedom, too, and a large group forms an alliance to venture out together.  The warden then declares it a crime against the community’s collective well-being to defect, claiming their jobs are too important to the survival of the compound.

Reality now sets in.  Everyone immediately realizes that they are a prisoner.  From then on life becomes nearly unbearable, but after a few years the best behaved inmates may be able to relocate into highly monitored condos in sanitized communities.  Never mind the cameras in your house, they’re for your protection. Keep your head down and do your duty.

Let’s get real for a moment.  Given all we know about corporate-government false flags and plans for FEMA camps, will we have the courage when we look into the scared eyes of our children to refuse government “help” when the manufactured collapse comes? Perhaps you’ll be prepared with a month or two of rations, but, assuredly, that is when the remaining masses will be most desperate as well.

Tell us what you would do . . .
