Hypocrite Republocrats

Wed, Aug 28, 2013 - 11:07pm

This clip is only seven minutes long but it's a painful seven minutes, particularly after the 5:30 mark.

Has anything changed in six years? Nope. Anything goes as long as your guy, your party is in power. Trump up "evidence"? Sure, why not? Transparent moral outrage? Only when there's political gain at hand.

There is no difference. You have no elected representatives. Just one military-industrial complex with a public face of preening sociopaths.

In case you think I'm new to this

From 12/19/10


Preparing Accordingly

Lately, I spent a lot of time fashioning posts about the daily machinations of the gold and silver markets. I will, no doubt, continue this practice as it is a hobby/passion of mine. However, the subtitle of this blog refers to the end of The Great Keynesian Experiment and its implications so I feel I need to "get back to basics", so to speak, as it is the "prepare accordingly" part that we all need to practice.

I found this image on Google and it seems to sum up my point of view. We are but children, at once hopeful and optimistic, yet watching our future drain away. The arcade coin drop is a metaphor I've used often in the past and I think it provides a decent visual. In the immortal words of Inigo Montoya: Let me explain. No, there is too much. Let me sum up.

Our "coin" was dropped by the great Texas slimeball politician, LBJ, when he created The Great Society in the 1960s. A new, expanded role of the US federal government was created and politicians learned that they could manipulate government largesse to their own political gain. In 1971, the coin began sinking into the funnel and spinning faster when republocrat President R. Milhous Nixon, realizing that the gold-sponsored money supply of the US could never grow at a pace sufficient to support this ever-expanding government, removed the US from the "gold standard" and the US dollar has been backed by nothing but the full faith and credit of the US government ever since.

Republocrat Jimmy Carter presided over the initial wave of stagflation brought upon by Nixon's decision. The "coin" kept dropping and circling faster and faster during his four years in office. In 1980, suddenly there was hope. Conservative Ronald Wilson Reagan was elected and through a policy of tax-cutting and higher interest rates, the conservative Reagan defied the laws of physics as the coin actually moved up the funnel and slowed. However, having succumbed to old age and senility, even Reagan suffered a "death-bed conversion" to Republocratism and the coin began dropping again in 1986. Republocrat giant, G. H. Walker Bush took the reins of government in 1988 and, by 1992, our coin was spinning faster than ever and dropping at an alarming pace.

With the election of hick republocrat Billy Jeff Clinton in 1992, things began to get out of control. Soon, faced with a rapidly approaching end game, all republocrats in Congress and the Federal Reserve decided to go for broke. By massively inflating the US money supply, an illusion of prosperity took over, not just in the US but globally, too. This mirage held our collective imagination until the year 2000 when, suddenly, we began to realize that all was not well and that the coin was actually spinning faster and was much closer to the bottom than we'd thought.

"Good heavens. We can't have that!" exclaimed the new republocrat president Dubya Bush. With his partners in crime in Congress and the Federal Reserve, Little B reached into the funnel, grabbed the already speeding/dropping coin and actually gave it a push faster. By 2008, the coin was nearing the bottom of the funnel.

Just then, a dangerously under-qualified former street radical republocrat was elected president. President B'rock O'bottom is now presiding over the end of the game. At the end, the "coin" spins faster and faster until the bottom simply drops out. This is where we stand today. Are not events spinning faster and faster? Are your politicians and policymakers not making more rash and spurious decisions with each passing day? Are global leaders not positioning themselves for the next World Order?

The end of US hegemony is near and with it, the end of the US dollar as "world reserve currency". This catastrophe and all in entails could have been avoided with responsible leadership and an educated/involved populace. However, selfishly, we in the US decided it was best to pursue a plan where we foolishly thought our recklessness was beneficial. This attitude was best summarized by republocrat and Keynesian legend, John Connally, who, as the coin was dropped in 1973, told the world that "the dollar is our currency but it is your problem". Sadly, we allowed Mr. Connally to be prescient for almost 40 years but the world is about to turn the tables. Soon...very soon...the coin will finally reach the narrow end of the funnel and the bottom will simply drop out. What happens next will not be fun and games.

On a Turd post. I'll still take it.

Public sociopaths -er- servants, yeah that's it . . servants

You have no elected representatives. Just one military-industrial complex with a public face of preening sociopaths.

Sadly, this is so very true. For every Ron Paul, Justin Amash or Alan Grayson, there are scores of nearly interchangeable, on every important issue, slugs. It's like George Carlin said in a clip from a late career appearance on Bill Maher's program. We'll give you 23 different kinds of bagels. But only 6 companies own all the media and they all have the same corporate fascist policies for the most part.

I've actually come around to thinking that Obama is now doing serious damage to Hillary Clinton. I think more libertarian types who were generally aligned with the red team have awakened to reality so far. And they had an actual candidate in the last presidential election primaries to vote for in Ron Paul. But things are getting so bad that I think Obama's starting to wake up the sort of libertarian-ish types usually aligned with team blue. After they see a war with Syria for no good reason whatsoever, I sort of think a lot of them will absolutely hate the idea of another soulless establishment drone like Hillary Clinton who has no principles except to further the career of . . . Hillary Clinton.

...both parties suck, no arguments here.

Complete hypocrites to the point that their mental make up is certainly questionable. They're all like pre-programmed robots on a perpetual talking point based in denial and a sense of entitlement.

Sick lost bastards are what they are.

Aug 28, 2013 - 11:54pm

And so it goes...

... term limits, tort reform, tax reform and probably some systemic crisis orders of magnitude worse than 2008 to wake up the majority - otherwise more of the same from WDC & elsewhere as zero incentive for anyone good to consider public office. Back to floating along this golden river...

I have a theory about Syria

I have gut feeling the One is about to have second thoughts about the planed 40 cruise missile surgical strike at Syria. I don't think he has the balls to start ww3. In fact I really don't think he has any balls at all.

Aug 29, 2013 - 12:29am

By the numbers....

(Looks like I put this on the wrong thread.) 1) Who stands to gain if a war breaks out in the Middle East? War is the all time number one way to distract the voters from a dismal economy. War provides more jobs and more spending which temporally props up a failing economy. 2) Who stands to lose if war breaks out? Soldiers and tax payers. Dead soldiers and higher taxes to pay for the war. I smell a rat and his name is Edi Amin Obama, DaDa, President for life. This could well make el Presidente Whore-hey Bush’s Iraq debacle look like Granada.

I think he'll hesitate just long enough to slam gold back below 1400, and silver below 24.

Then the bombs will fly, I think he's hoping for a massive retaliation.

This man is not your average politician, he's probably on a genuine jihad, and when he's finally put to death for treason, he has his 72 virgins to look forward to. Victory would mean he is stuck with Michelle.

Who do you think he's rooting for?

Mr. Fix

I think you may have broken the code wide open. I initially thought he would just pop a few firecrackers out in the desert and maybe dust a camel or something, but let's face it, he has to do something severe enough to at least warrant a spot on CNN and a retaliatory strike.

If old Joe gets the nomination for president he will wear that painful 7 minute video on his forehead all day everyday. He can't spin his sorry ass out from under that retarded blunder. The last time I checked old Joe had a net worth of 300k total. Hell he has been in the senate since he was 29 years old WTF. Most of his fellow dick lickers in the senate are worth in some cases hundreds of millions. The Sumbitch has not got enough sense to come in out of the rain much less grab a million or two from a defense contractor.

My take on Biden

He is the best insurance policy against impeachment that Barack Obama could possibly have.

Other than that, he is probably the dumbest politician in history.

Thats just old joe

Mr. Fix exactly. Can we assume that Joe is not aware of that insurance angle? What a dumb ass. Just saw where Gen. Martin Dempsey is against an attack on Syria. His ass is fired soon. High ranking military officers who go against the party line are purged. Gen. Dempsey has a set of balls.

Vlad Putin

Has been waiting to put Barry in a box and now he has his chance. Putin is an outlaw of sorts and he clearly does not give a rats ass about the One. I will say this also...... Putin does not want to deal with a "brother" and that is the way it is take it or leave it. Awkward much?

I actually can't stomach watching politicians on TV. I rarely watch MSM anymore because it is nothing more than WAG THE DOG. Anytime I come across someone in the public who wants to blame the Republicans or Democrats... I just ignore them or say, "If you follow either party, then you have no idea of what is really going on."

And that normally keeps me out of wasting my time discussing it any further.

That being said... at least the precious metals are still something to put FAITH INTO. The Royal Canadian Mint just released their Q2 2013 report, and it looks like Maples are breaking all records:

DYNA MO HUM......Thanks... I know. Gosh, I have been so darn busy myself, its hard to keep everything straight anymore. Just to let you all know, I have been receiving some old Annual Reports from HOMESTAKE MINING. I plan on putting together a very interesting report on gold mining financials, production and ore grades from the past to the present.

I have come across some articles on Homestake, and I haven't found any that included factual data on their FINANCIALS. However, I hope to finally shed some light in this area.

I have to say, many assumptions that I had made from everything I heard and read about Homestake turned out to be incorrect. On the other hand, I found out some things that were completely surprising.

Here’s something for you to ponder, Turd:

IF, back in January of 1969, you were not still wearing short pants and playing in the sandbox, it was you instead of Nixon miraculously sworn in as POTUS and thus inherited the sheer clusterf*ck left behind by LBJ [i.e. a) Coinage Act of 1965 removing Silver content from U.S. Coins; b) Massive Welfare Freebies & Vietnam etc., with NO viable means to pay for the Bull Sh*t] plus knowing as Nixon did, that the Rothschild controlled Central Banks were massively manipulating/suppressing the Gold Price via the London Gold Pool, allowing them to drain/steal America’s dwindling Strategic Stockpile of Gold (still the World’s ultimate form of Money/ Debt extinguisher) with Rothschild’s /Rockefeller’s. et al’s Phederal Reserve Central Bank’s ponzified, “fractional reserve” fiat ass-wipe rag paper at the then utterly ridiculously asinine / rip off price of 35 FRNs per ounce of actual physical Gold, would You have allowed these Banksters to continue stealing the last remaining 8,000 tons of America’s Gold, thereby making America a Third World Country as early as mid-1970’s? Or would you have likewise did as Nixon did, telling those Keynesian Banksters to Go F*k themselves, (“We are ALL Keynesians now”), thus preserving what little was left of America’s Gold Stock? What do you possibly imagine that your living standard would have been right now Today, if Nixon did not prevent the ripping off of America’s Gold with mere Central Bankster fiat leveraged FRN IOUs?

talking about record sales...

last time the US Mint deemed it necessary to update the sales numbers for the American Silver Eagles (should correspond to the numbers up to mid-August), the sales numbers already equaled the total of ASE sold in 2012.

Aug 29, 2013 - 8:07am

Mr Fix, re biden

Nixon had Spiro "nolo" Agnew, and even that couldn't save him from impeachment.

So there is still hope, though...for what?

"But even without hard evidence tying Mr. Assad to the attack, administration officials asserted, the Syrian leader bears ultimate responsibility for the actions of his troops and should be held accountable."


Fair enough but what about BO and the history of all the unnecessary wars the US has engaged in? Come on....

This isn't about Syria, It's about control.

I usually just do a lot of lurking here, luv the info i get. But when i took a look at the picture you posted. I'm guessing it was taken in a war room of sorts? Imagine if you just woke up from a long comma, not aware of things going on in this world of ours. Now you were shown this picture, and asked to pick out the man,or woman in charge. The President. Take a GOOD look at it, now tell me which one would you pick? Really. God help us all........stack on we are going to need it.
