The US continues to hammer citizens while expanding imperial power and spending abroad so Pentagon cuts are not going to reduce troops in Asia, Europe, Africa or close any bases whatsoever overseas…but slashing bases and troops at home? Of course! Also, Obama announced his global warming plans while the deep South and Midwest howl in rage, liberals worry about the South going underwater and the Midwest having droughts and worse, think this is the End of Humanity rather than something somewhat funny. Gold continues to fall in value, screwing up the heads of gold bugs who thought it would rise forever and Israel greatly expands plans for ethnic cleansing with kisses from our Congress.
We have no money…for bases at home, protecting America: Army to cut brigades at 10 US bases – seattlepi.com
In a massive restructuring, Army leaders said Tuesday that they will slash the number of active duty combat brigades from 45 to 33, as the service moves forward with a longtime plan to cut the size of the service by 80,000. And they warned that more cuts — of as many as 100,000 more active duty, National Guard and Reserve soldiers — could be coming if Congress allows billions of dollars in automatic budget cuts to continue next year.
If our budget is in such distress, why not cut troops protecting imperialist Japan or trade rival South Korea? And why are troops in Germany? Who on earth is planning to invade Germany? We have Cold War troops all over the planet and these are hideously expensive and they protect international corporations who are systematically destroying our industrial base at home and putting Americans out of work and reducing our wages…so why protect world shipping for free? That is pure insanity.
And if our trade rivals want us to patrol the Seven Seas, we can tax them for this service. Then, shipping will show the true cost of this protection. Shipping to the US would be hugely expensive, no? As it must be! Instead, we put the costs for protecting world shipping on our collective IOU and ran up an immense deficit which now is eating up the remains of our economic system as our craven, corrupt Congress howls for more imperialism, more troops overseas, more wars.
Obama announced he is scared of global warming…er…climate change…so he is going to start taxing CO2 (better warn the trees of this war on their substance they eat!). So, we have the hysterics on the left aping the ones on the right who are howling about Muslims, the leftists are just as deadly, ‘End of Times’ believers so we have this article in a ‘liberal’ online publication that shows clearly how insane this issue makes people: Scientist: ‘Miami, As We Know It Today, Is Doomed. It’s Not A Question Of If. It’s A Question Of When.’ | ThinkProgress which used to be semi-sane, here is a typical comment at this liberal site:
My reading of the climate models (adjusted for real-world effects), and the projections for continued intensive fossil fuel use made by all the major governmental, inter-governmental, and industrial organizations, leads me to conclude we will go extinct as a species somewhere between end of century and perhaps two generations before!
These same End of Time liberals then whine about how people in the deep south ignore this terrifying future. I keep saying, people love hot, dry weather. A great, great deal. We lived, some of us, in cold, gloomy places like Europe since the last Ice Age and evolved to have very pale skin which burns in the hot sun, but this comes at a great cost. Cold is very uncomfortable and ice cold kills swiftly. We had to learn how to build shelters, make clothing that is warm, etc. to deal with very cold conditions.
But the migrations tend to be from cold to warm, not the reverse. North America’s colder parts of Canada and the Northern tier of the US was settled by northern Europeans who were accustomed to extreme cold. The Spanish stuck to the much warmer parts of the New World. Humans evolved in jungles and hot plains and we tend to prefer this to ice conditions.
The global warming people want to tax heavily energy used by cold climate people so that the warm, dry parts are kept at ‘Little Ice Age’ condition. That is, cooler than during warm cycles. By making the graphs showing ‘warming’ start with the end of the Little Ice Age, it looks as if heating is rising rapidly. It was! For a short while. Now that the sun is showing signs of going back into the few-sun spots, Little Ice Age cycle, the only thing saving us from having the Thames River freeze each winter is CO2 higher than 200 years ago.
The childish pretense that we had ‘climate stability’ at any time in the past leads to hysteria when things happen. But we know from research that great droughts hit the Southwest a mere 500 years ago when the Pacific air flows shifted during the beginning of the Little Ice Age. Then there are the hurricanes in the Atlantic: Air Pollution May Have Suppressed Storms, Research Suggests
As many people will recall, the North Atlantic was quiescent in the 1970s and 1980s, especially for major hurricanes, creating a false sense of security and encouraging coastal development. But starting in the 1990s, storminess increased sharply, and the new study says that may be because clean air laws had started to take effect.
I am sure that is a contributing factor. But the #1 cause was simpler: the sun. In the 1970’s to early 1980’s we had a cooler sun and there was talk about another Little Ice Age. We are nearing the end of our lovely Interglacial Event because history shows us these last only 20,000 years, more or less, before the refrigerator turns back on. The sun then became quite active again during the Reagan years and reached a zenith from 1995-2005. Now, it is growing ominously quiet again. This heavily effects storm activation.
The complex interaction of the upwelling waters in oceans coupled with tectonic activity is a huge force at work in the weather patterns but again, the output of the sun is the ‘make or break’ issue. The sun heats or cools the oceans and the atmosphere. The cutting down of rain forests definitely effects rain patterns much more than CO2 rises and this is a huge force at work warping weather when it comes to rainfall. Moisture rising from oceans that don’t rain on jungles ends up expending its energy elsewhere!
The news from Australia should give the Democrats pause: Australian government dumps PM Gillard for former leader Rudd | Reuters
Voters have also remained angry that her government, which holds a one-seat majority with support from the Greens and a clutch of independents, introduced a controversial carbon tax in a backflip from her 2010 election promise not to do so.
Gillard is also unpopular due to her letting Mossad kidnap and then torture in a secret prison an Australian citizen who ran afoul of their assassination plans which involved stealing Australian passports. Reuters won’t mention this little tidbit, of course. Gillard was a very heavy duty Zionist tool. Now Australia is ‘hot’. Very hot! And has big, big storms. So the people there should hate global warming….NOT!
HAHAHA. Nope. They love the heat! Many are Europeans who get very badly sunburned and get melanoma yet they love the sun and fewer and fewer white people in America, Europe or Australia wear any hats at all so everyone is looking less and less ‘pale face’ and more and more ‘steamed lobster red’. We can’t have a global ‘end of times’ head hysteria when people absolutely, even fatally, love, love, love not only hot, hot, hot but also oceans galore.
The fact is, the vast bulk of humans, despite the screams from global warming people that the ocean will drown them all, are moving towards, not away, from the coastlines. This is nearly universal. In some places like Japan, the mountains and hinterlands are being nearly totally depopulated at this point with around 80% of the people living within a few miles of the dangerous ocean which has a violent tendency to have tsunamis.
The Deep South in the US is the same. The more likely a place is a hurricane danger zone, the higher the population movement towards the ocean’s outer edges. Planting oneself right smack dab on the very edge of the high tide mark is extremely popular and the most expensive properties are in this very location. Telling people living in cold places, they must pay a carbon tax to stay warm so that the armies of sun lovers moving to beaches can maintain the present beach status quo is not a good political move.
I find Rubin, a Zionist at the Washington Post to be quite repulsive but on rare occasions we agree: Obama’s climate gift to Republicans
The reason even Democrats balked on climate change regulations in the first term (it stalled in the Senate) is because it is economically debilitating, especially in energy producing states; politically unpopular in red states and among the vast majority of all conservatives nationwide; and useless (so long as China, India, etc. don’t follow suit it does virtually nothing for the planet as a whole – even if one buys the global warming hysteria).
I predicted this five years ago. Taxing people for consuming energy to keep warm is insane. Tax people for using non-solar power energy to air condition their homes makes perfect sense but what is most sensible of all is to install solar panels on all US homes! Duh! I have advocated this for the last 40 years. I also advocated having a tax on oil to subsidize 0% loans to buy solar panels which pay for themselves in less than 10 years and then becomes the property of the homeowners. This simple plan coupled with having the solar panel plants in the US thus creating jobs, was first proposed by myself way, way back in 1978.
And nearly totally ignored! When ABC ran an interview of me talking about this in a story called ‘Power FOR the People’ (they used my suggested headline!) the reporter and editor contacted me the very next day and yelled at me saying, ‘We made a mistake, no one wants to listen to you!’ which was mainly due to them breaking the rule ‘Elaine is not allowed on TV…ever’ that is imposed on anyone rocking the imperialist/Zionist/Bilderberg boat.
Naturally, Obama makes no mention of my proposal nor does he offer to implement anything resembling it. He wants a tax on energy which hits the very same people in the North who would vote for his party while the Southern GOP racist party jumps for joy since they love global warming and want more of this.
And they want slavery, too: GOP Senator: Minimum Wage Should Be Abolished while McCain: We’ll make border with Mexico look like ‘the Berlin Wall’ which is funny since importation of illegal aliens suppress wages for citizens! Of course, the US pays for Israel’s wall building while not guarding our own borders and back to the top of my story, we are planning to reduce troops in the US…while aliens pour over our borders! And workers who can’t get factory jobs will now lose their military welfare jobs which is highly unpopular and scary as hell for the people using the military as a means of escaping from poverty.
Totally protected by the US and using our Congress to pay for everything, Zionists are now unleashing total hell on the captive natives of Palestine: Lieberman: Israel Must ‘Conquer and Cleanse’ Gaza is bellowed in public while Kerry runs about, pathetically trying to shush him and his neo-Nazi ilk in Israel. The moving of native Bedouin into concentration camps is accelerating, too: Roi Tov—Israel Approves Prawer Law Expelling Bedouins
The tribes roam all over the desert there. The little red patches are the future ‘reservations’ being set up to pen in these people. The blue parts are places the Bedouin now ‘control’ while living outside these blue areas, too. These blue areas are five times bigger than the tiny red patchers. Note how the Jews plan to isolate all of these communities and keep them from each other just like they did to the Palestinians trapped in the Gaza Ghetto and the enclaves on the West Bank. The US pays for all this, supports this secretly and now, openly.
Then there are the bankers who are Zionists and move from the US to Israel and back again, wrecking everything: Roi Tov—AIG-Collapse Player Appointed Bank of Israel Governor
Jacob resume is not less worrying, but for different reasons. Since 2009, he was Chairman of JPMorgan Chase International and Chairman and CEO of the abovementioned Group of Thirty. Between 2004 and 2009, he had been Vice Chairman of American International Group (AIG), role that he filled during the company’s collapse. From 2000 to 2004, he was Chairman of Merrill Lynch International, and Chairman of Merrill Lynch’s Sovereign Advisory and Global Financial Institutions Groups. As mentioned, before that he had been Governor of the Bank of Israel.
So, instead of putting this clown in prison, he destroys not only AIG but Merrill Lynch and then gets to be head of the Bank of Israel! This is what fuels antisemitism. And Jewish people think banking schemes to wreck entire nations don’t affect themselves collectively? By evading punishment for smashing things up, they run off to Israel to continue onwards while pulling strings here in our Congress via AIPAC: this is treason, treachery and very, very, very dangerous to US citizens who are Jewish and not rich, not powerful but rather, ordinary citizens. By not demanding their fellow tribesmen be punished, they increase antisemitism poison.
Using Israel as a pirate hideout for rich Jews looting whole nations is stupid in the extreme. But then, America harbors many, many looters who are busy little bees destroying our own nation and it isn’t a CO2 problem that is wrecking America, it is racism…look at the Supreme Court right wing judges killing Civil Rights voting laws!…out of control borders, free trade ravaging jobs, bank schemes that are frauds, the destruction of real capital in favor of fake paper products like CDOs and OTC deals.
Last of all, Gold hits 3-year low, soothing central bank talk steadies bond markets and stocks. Gold, like anything else, never ever goes up and up and up and the fact that gold bug hoarders want this eternal wealth machine to roll onwards effortlessly makes them as foolish as bankers who think they can lend to infinity with zero real capital. The divorce between modern banking and any limiting system except for total financial collapse is due to the free trade/floating fiat currency regime. And hoarding gold won’t fix this thing, either.
Reforming systems to reflect the true value of saving is very important. Going back hundreds of years, the holding of capital in banks so they can lend is key to capitalism and modern societies and we threw this all away. Hoarding gold feeds no capitalist ventures, it is a dead weight and usually ends up doing next to nothing except paying ransoms to Viking raiders!
