General Lawlessness

Thu, Nov 20, 2014 - 11:19am

O'er the land of debt slavery and the home of anything goes so long as it helps the bottom line.

I'm not sure exactly when it happened. Perhaps it's impossible to pinpoint an event or a date. In the end, though, an uninformed populace gets not what they want but what they deserve...general lawlessness.

Personal America worships the self. If it feels good, do it. No thought wasted considering any destructive consequences that might be visited upon others. Corporate America worships the bottom line. Pay no attention to how we achieve our profits nor those we exploited along the way. In the end, a nation of narcissists receives its Boy King.

The latest episode in freedom's long, sad decline comes this evening with an event that combines the worst of both Americas. The Boy King will announce that he is bypassing the legislative branch and rewriting immigration law. In his Personal America, he is doing this because he is impatient and because it feels good to "do something". (Never mind pandering for votes.) The Corporate America that worships profits gladly supports him. Cheap labor is good for the bottom line and its executives line their pockets through the exploitation. (Witness the Wall St Journal and The Chamber of Commerce.)

All of this grinds away at the last remaining vestiges of The American Experiment. Other examples include:

  • A wholly corrupt banking sector which has seen not a single prosecution for crimes committed leading up to The Great Financial Crisis of 2008.
  • Utterly corrupt government regulatory bodies such as the SEC and CFTC, which willfully turn a blind eye in order to protect and defend the status quo.
  • A corrupt and biased "Fourth Estate" media which overtly pursues a political agenda instead of defending The Bill of Rights, from which they draw their power.
  • A hopelessly corrupt political class, so drunk on celebrity and the desire to maintain power, that they completely ignore their intended role as "people's representatives".

I have no doubt that we live in The Last Days. Not in a biblical sense but in the sense of lost freedom and liberty. You must understand that America is an historical aberration. Almost all of recorded history shows mankind living under despotism, tyranny and authoritarian rule. The American ideal of self-government, personal responsibility and freedom only came to pass in the late 18th Century. That this experiment survived even 100 years is a miracle yet our current generations have willfully squandered this inheritance, choosing instead to worship the false idols of self-gratification and greed.

My children and my children's children will not enjoy the same opportunities and freedom that I was granted by birthright. For this I am saddened, not just today but everyday, knowing that just as it didn't have to be this way, there is also no turning back and recapturing what has been lost.

Legal background from The Judge

Perhaps your personal political bias thinks I'm overreacting and overstating the significance of today's events. Perhaps I am. However, the can be no argument regarding the continual decline which is only accelerated through such gross, executive largesse and usurpation of power.

Wholehearted agreement

I especially like the included clip of Judge Napolitano. Nice added values to my financial site, thanks Turd!

Good Luck all...

Boy King

The M I T professor, the architect of Obamacare, said the American people were stupid. He was right. They proved it when they voted for the Boy King.

Nov 20, 2014 - 11:45am

Lots of truth Craig!

When our founding fathers came to this new land, they hoped for a new beginning. Floating away from the corruption of kings and queens, invading every aspect of life and freedom. They had a hope of a new start, a better vision, freedom for all. However, they were unable to stop ship loads of the old corruption, sailing into the harbors. They also set up shop, seeing this new land as filled with milk cows instead of sheep. Cows of mankind to milk ever last drop of life and profits for their greed.

Will these things ever be repaired by governments or even by revolutions? Nope! It will take a stronger Force to set thing right and it will come in time. jmo

You are dead nuts on

I would say, that if you had to put a date on it, you would have to pick November 22, 1963.

It marked the codification of the power of shadow government, you know, the one that the murdered subject warned about. After that, it went down in a hurry.

The immigration issue is interesting. The beneficiary of the aforementioned murder, reversed the US policies on immigration. We had experienced great economic growth post ww2, labor was strong, Detroit was the richest City in the land.....and that was the peak.....He also wholesaled the "give 'em free shit and get their vote" policy. You can look at chart after chart after chart, and it is quite obvious that the 70's were the inflection point of the demise. LBJ laid the foundation that it was all built on. This last chapter of the thieving banks, is just the obvious last gasp....when all else has been exhausted, steal whatever is left.

It is really sad. The most disgusting part of this situation are the dolts, that are otherwise smart folks, either the skinny glassed do-gooder that is "ok" with their administration calling them useful idiots and continuing to vote, or the dolt corporate sell-out that is willing to accept a 20% increase in income and willfully observe the destruction of their country, punishing their kids.

The whole thing makes me sick.

BTW GPRO is now in the process of becoming GOAM, as in......go amateur.

The Judge

Judge Napolitano is usually right when it comes to Constitutional Law, unlike our tear-down-America-as-fast-as-I-can Professor in Chief. I agree that we are at the "End Times" of personal and economic freedom. One can't exist without the other.

I think that Turdville will rejoice at the sudden ethical turnaround at Goldman!

Nov 20, 2014 - 11:57am

Regarding Judge N

In reading "Lies the Government Told You" it becomes clear that we have , as a nation of neutered sheep, been soiling the Constitution for many years. This situation has been long in the making. BHO is merely the newest catalyst to an already powerful and malignant cancer. Have a nice day .

Nov 20, 2014 - 12:01pm


looks to me, like the failure of SGI is already priced in....isn't that the generally knowledge at this point? What was the price of gold before SGI was even on the table?

Of course, it will fail. Reform will never happen with a vote because the only thing that matters is who counts the votes.

I would suggest that even if the vote is close that it signifies that more and more folks have pulled their heads out, and that should bolster higher prices and nudge us closer to the day where physical overwhelms the monopoly money game.

A personal thank you for describing how I feel in much better words than I could write on the last post.

You are a good man, and I'm thankful that there are still some that sigh at what continues around us.

Nov 20, 2014 - 12:11pm


I originally thought that George W. would be the first Emperor but it turns out I was mistaken.

Of course this is just a natural extension of the loss of freedom derived from the loss of sound money in 1933 and 1966.

the very fact that gold is actually being discussed as part of the MSM narrative is all we can hope for at this point. Keep stacking, our day will come :-)

OI up 25% since the lows, plenty of longs for the commercials to blow out next week heading into the SGI vote on 11/30. Another close above 1180 tomorrow to really set the trap? Just bought some GDX puts

Ray of Hope

There is always hope. Lets not get too depressed. Getting through the BS may not be pretty, and likely will be, painful. But the good guys will arise and triumph.

I was reading Karl Denninger's site the other day and and he posted a reference to Jim Cramer's "New Winners". It was published Feb 29,2000. AMAZING. It could not have been more wrong. He listed 10, and I quote, companies that you MUST own.

OK. Here goes. Write them down -- no handouts here!: 724 Solutions (SVNX), Ariba (ARBA),Digital Island (ISLD), Exodus (EXDS), (INSP), Inktomi (INKT), Mercury Interactive (MERQ), Sonera (SNRA), VeriSign (VRSN) and Veritas Software (VRTS).

All but verisign are now nonexistent. Either, complete implosion to no money and no business, or aquired for peanuts. Verisign is a third of its value on the date of this published list. If you had bought equal amounts of each company you would have suffered a 97% loss by today....and that is only because VRSN has grown 10 fold since late 2002. Had you blown your brains out and sold everything in late 2002 (everything left to sell, that is, some was just gone), you would have lost 99.6%

My point is this. At that time, late February 2000. Jim Cramer was the smartest guy in the room, according to popular stock market thinking. CNBC had viewership that was 10 times higher than today......and they were EPICLY, insanely, pound-the sell-sell-sell button wrong...

WHAT are they EPICLY wrong about now?

What if some idiot had come on CNBC and suggested, "yeah, uh, no, I couldn't disagree with you more, Jim. You should sell all that crap, because it is going to drop 99% in the next 18 months. Frankly, the only thing worth owning is gold. I just bought a boatload at $280.....I also am buying miners. and energy. It is insanely cheap....not these ridiculous values for your fictitious "new whatever"....

Jim would muse, "idiot"....

The Boy King Does not care about the Law

The boy king who was allegedly a constitutional scholar made recess appointments to the NRLB when Congress was not in recess. The Supreme Court ruled 9-0 that the actions of the boy scholar violated the Constitution. 9-0, think about that for a moment, that means that all of the justices, even the extremely liberal ones, agreed that the boy scholar violated the Constitution. So the boy king had to know that what he did violated the Constitution, and he went ahead and did it anyway. All so he could appoint some union stooges to the NRLB. He does not care about the Constitution or laws.

That action tell me all I need to know about the boy king. His proposed actions tonight (which he on numerous occasions has said he does not have the power to do under the Constitution) are merely a continuation of his lawless behavior. While he took an oath to uphold the law, he does not care about his oath or the law. He thinks he is the one we have waited for.

The chaos that his action creates are all intentional. That chaos tells me to stack, eventually the true value of gold and silver will be realized and that realization may occur sooner than we expect.

Nov 20, 2014 - 1:25pm

Right on the mark Turd

TPTB are out of control and if it continue's we will look back and say those were the good old days , meaning now and prior!

You can see and feel the life & freedom being sucked out of Americans.

If this continue's, I see a future such as The Hunger Games, basically where the people are on constant lockdown. Maybe not in my lifetime but several generations in the future.

This lame duck is not so lame and I believe he will being doing more "Hail Mary" damage while sitting on the throne.

Nov 20, 2014 - 1:27pm

as long as we're getting down-n-dirty here today.......

Let's take a peek at the source of the problem of, "who is doing what to whom , and how do they do it".

I’m Sick And Tired Of The Secrets And The Lies”

Jim Carrey Calls Out Illuminati Secrets On National Television

jimcarrey 728x400 “I’m Sick And Tired Of The Secrets And The Lies” Jim Carrey Calls Out Illuminati Secrets On National Television

Jim Carrey is a well-known jokester. By now, his kooky public antics have come to be expected from the 52 year old Canadian-born actor. In his latest public appearance, seen November 14th on the Jimmy Kimmel show, Carrey decided to let the viewers in on some big secrets, the inner-Hollywood workings of the Illuminati.

In a grand entrance, Carrey comes forward on Kimmel’s stage making an obvious and in-your-face hand gesture, as seen in the image above. The crowd screamed and applauded with jubilance, and it was unclear whether they were screaming because they aware of the hand symbol he was making, or whether they were simply excited to see the actor after a short stint away from Hollywood in recent years.

In the video (seen below), Carrey spends an extended period of time making the triangle hand symbol while protruding his tongue from the center, while a curious but humored Kimmel watches from behind at his desk.

The audience finally calms down after Carrey takes a seat at Kimmel’s desk, after which Kimmel asks, “What Is that exactly? Is that a gang sign?

Carrey shoots Kimmel a look of surprise, “Oh like you don’t know what it is,” he jokes. Kimmel answers “No I don’t.”

So you don’t know what it is, Jimmy Fallon doesn’t know, David Letterman doesn’t know what it is, all the comics in show business don’t know what this is?” he states while making the triangle hand gesture once again.

For those who aren’t sure what Carrey is referencing, the triangle with a symbol in the middle (typically an eye) represents the Illuminati, a hidden governing force which has ties in all of today’s biggest industries, including financial, entertainment, military, and religious. Illuminati references have become ubiquitous throughout Hollywood, as seen in a number of films, television shows, music videos, and even live performances.

After Kimmel continues to deny knowing what Carrey is doing, Carrey finally reveals,

Come on Jimmy, I’m here to blow the whistle off of this whole thing. I’m sick and tired of the secrets and the lies, it’s the secret symbol of the Illumi-nutty, and you’re a part of it. It’s the all mocking tongue.” Carrey boasts to a laughing audience.

Carrey goes on to explain (with a not-so-serious undertone) how many people in the entertainment industry have been hired by the government to distract the masses by making us happy and docile, so that we don’t know what’s really going on. Carrey also adds that they decide these things “out in the woods in a circle, naked.”

Next he reveals that the Illuminati is trying to turn the masses into “consumer drones,” after which he receives a fake phone call which he answers. We watch as his face immediately turns serious, and a curious Kimmel asks who it was.

Carrey is now zombie-like, and turns to Jimmy explaining, “I’m sor-ry, Jimmy, I-was tempor-arily inter-rupted by my iPhone 6+, with HD display,” the audience erupts in laughter and cheers.

The segment ends with an original plug for his new film, Dumb and Dumber To, leaving the audience thoroughly entertained.

Was There Truth Behind Carrey’s Extended ‘Joke’?

Although there was an apparent undertone of humor to Carrey’s stunt, many of the things he mentioned are in fact based in truth.

The term ‘Illuminati’ comes with connotations of conspiracy, however, the term simply refers to the high-level bankers who own a large majority of our world. The Rothschilds and Rockefellers, to name a few.

Like mentioned before, these families have ties to practically every industry that exists today, including Hollywood. The origins of these families are also connected to esoteric occult organizations, such as Freemasonry. This is where occult symbolism, such as the triangle and all seeing eye, comes into fruition. The theory states that many Hollywood hopefuls display these symbols, which are hidden in plain sight, in order to show their allegiance to the ‘global elite’ and to better themselves within the industry.

One could argue that Carrey was poking fun at the Illuminati conspirists, however, considering Carrey is known for being publicly involved in the ‘truth movement’, one must naturally question if this public appearance was a planned tactic to spread awareness about the global elite. With a platform as wide-reaching as the Jimmy Kimmel show, it would definitely be a perfect opportunity to do so. (Link: Jim Carrey Discusses His Spiritual Awakening)

and another thing....

Feb 29,2000 was the absolute tippy, tippy, tip-top of the dotcom stocks- the very day he penned his piece...... Verisign (the only stock that still is listed) dropped from a 2/29 high of 215 to $80 within 4 weeks.

Who knows? All I know is that this stuff changes in a hurry and the so called experts are idiots, frequently.....and yet, he still has a job....I'd say he was very self-aware for quitting the hedge fund biz.

Put this post out on ZH like the old days....

While short, this really was one of the most poignant things you have written.

Action + Inaction = ?

I don't believe that it will be Obama's ACTION that will be the breaking point. It will be the INACTION of the House and Judiciary following this action that will signal that this aberration in history of self rule has transitioned ...

Yikes; I better pick up extra cases of shitty beer and pork rinds to use as currency during the post-Americana after party!

It's usually safe to assume

It's usually safe to assume that if no one is discussing them, then they haven't changed much. See below:

Nov 20, 2014 - 2:23pm

You have completely missed who to blame.


I would like to compliment you on a Well-thought-out, and topical post, but I have more than a few disagreements with some of the things that you stay in it.

Throughout this post, you seem to infer that the American populace has abdicated its right to freedom through its own moral decay, specifically high highlighted by your assertion that everyone is just taking care of themselves, consequences be damned.

In my opinion, this is exactly what our government, as well as our religious leaders wish us to believe, and I for one am stating that it is an absolute lie.

Our government was systematically infiltrated and hijacked over the past couple of generations, and through lies, and manipulations, those that have committed the crime of circumventing our Constitution have risen to unchallenged power.

There are a few individuals which hold the majority of of culpability for the demise of Western civilization, they were in attendance at Jekyll Island 100 years ago to hatch their plan. Behind the scenes, they have covertly undermined all the systems that make a free enterprise and capitalistic society function, and they have also intentionally destroy the democratic process.

I wholeheartedly disagree that the “boy King” was freely elected, he is guilty of fraud on so many levels, I wouldn't know where to start, but then again, that's another topic.

Too many Americans are now sitting around waiting for “God's wrath”, when the only thing most of us are guilty of, is working tirelessly, sometimes two or three jobs to provide for ourselves and our families, and yet, in our modern culture, this has somehow been framed as “selfish”.

I've been working on the basic premise that the entire system is “lawless” since before I started posting here. Thank you for noticing.

But all is not lost, you would think that at some point, people simply refused to comply with an illegitimate and lawless government. It does not matter that they have also hijacked what could be euphemistically termed as the “steeple house system”, as most of our religious leaders have been bought and paid for by the powers that be.

Sooner or later, this entire system turns to crap, we have also referred to this as “the end of the great Keynesian experiment”.

I personally refuse to accept any responsibility whatsoever for the crimes of our leaders, and I do what ever I can on a daily basis to live as far outside their system as possible.

Nowadays, personal responsibility is simply not enough, at some point, we are going to have to confront their “divide and conquer strategy”, and unite as human beings yearning to breathe free.

An overwhelming “noncompliance” with the powers that be would literally be all it takes to smash their power. They only rule out of fear.

It is my heartfelt wish that you continue to research this particular subject of “lawlessness”, but I ask you to research those that have perpetrated these crimes, those such as the Rothschild banking syndicated, the Rockefellers, the Kissinger's, and yes, those that I can only call “world religious leaders”, since they are all on the same page, but for the most part, have been unmentionable on Main Street.

Get a grip folks, we've been had.

It's as plain and simple as that.

Blaming ourselves will not only ever fix anything, but it lets those responsible for their crimes against humanity off Scott free while they continue to enslave us from behind the curtain.

This is all about waking up, and confronting the illusions we have been living under.

And for God's sake, stop blaming your fellow American citizens!

Personally, I think we need a lot more “citizens arrests”.

Those that pretend to be our elected officials, are almost uniformly guilty of treason. How is that our fault?

And by the way, I haven't posted much since the “election”, but if you thought I was nuts for saying that it wouldn't change a thing, my reply to you is “I told you so”.
