My name is Elaine Meinel Supkis. I never was an anonymous writer online, I always was a real person with a real address and real background. There are many, many people writing online who use fake names or hide their true selves. I am not one of these: I stand by everything written under this name! I feel that one can’t trust strangers hiding behind a mask. Culture of Life News was launched because other hosts of web sites would grow weary of my history lessons or digging up many news stories or graphs or other data that would contradict their own themes and belief systems. Or, other websites ended up being run like Communist re-education camps. Both left and right did the exact same thing: intolerance of all debate. I welcome debate and encourage it. It pleases me to have people from all over the place, come here to interact and do things. It is pure joy, watching people slowly change their minds about one thing or another, based entirely on reading and interacting with opposing views. I have my own ideas, of course. And love wrangling with others in the ‘comments’ section of this news service here. I find it endlessly amazing, the amount of information people are willing to drag into blogs and no one can really run a blog without this generous input! About my background: my family has a very entangled history, we have been members of the Ruling Class since the Battle of Hastings. We came to the New World on the wings of war, battles with the King of England, fleeing to Holland and then coming to New Amsterdam, going up the Hudson Valley. My French ancestors were not nobility but were dissident religious Huguenots, one of whom became a pirate and then settled in the Hudson Valley, too. My grandparents were astronomers, my parents were astronomers, too. I grew up in a number of observatories after being born at Yerkes Observatory in Wisconsin. My father had another life: he was an OSS officer in WWII in charge of the rocket program, namely, going deep into Germany to bring back the scientists, rockets and blueprints in April/May 1945. He has been advisor to more than 5 Presidents and I grew up, seeing things from very close up. Including all the goofy, stupid, dangerous and demented things adults do when they want to control the Planet Earth and of course, all those pesky peasants who give rulers endless trouble. I think that the rulers in America have chosen to destroy themselves and this nation and we are now set on a course of destruction. Financially, ethically, psychologically, and religiously, we are going into what I call the ‘Cave of Wealth and Death’ because we want to be rich and powerful, not happy and healthy and free. The chains of wealth pull us into the grave. I believe in Life, not Death. I believe that the only real thing we possess is our souls and this is by far, the most precious thing. Inside the Cave of Wealth and Death are various dire forces: Zero and Infinity, Libra and others which appear in my stories and cartoons. Above all of this flies the constellation Pegasus. This is my icon and I have been a believer in the eternal powers of creativity as expressed by the beliefs and ancient stories of this very old horse/god.

Hi Elaine ,
i cant see your email address at your new site so i hope you see this,
“Furthermore, the market has held up better than many expected. The process for settling claims after Lehman’s default and the government’s seizure of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac “performed as designed”, says Darrell Duffie of Stanford University. Only $6 billion had to change hands in the Lehman auction, overseen by ISDA, because most payments had already been made as swap-sellers marked their positions to market; in all, $21 billion had been theoretically at risk. Margin payments are widely thought to cover two-thirds of total CDS exposure.”
Is this true Elaine ? Only 6 billion at the auction
kind regards Paul
Have you seen this? Dated Feb. 08, 2009
LiveLeak has caught a scary moment of previously undisclosed insight by Paul Kanjorski where he reveals some facts that have not been captured by the media previously. At 2 minutes and 20 seconds in the video below, Democratic Representative Kanjorski explains how the Federal Reserve told Congress members about a “tremendous draw-down of money market accounts in the United States, to the tune of $550 billion dollars.” According to Kanjorski, this electronic transfer occurred over the period of an hour or two. And it gets worse. Kanjorski paraphrases the following disclosure by Bernanke and Paulson:
On Thursday (Sept 18), at 11am the Federal Reserve noticed a tremendous draw-down of money market accounts in the U.S., to the tune of $550 billion was being drawn out in the matter of an hour or two. The Treasury opened up its window to help and pumped a $105 billion in the system and quickly realized that they could not stem the tide. We were having an electronic run on the banks. They decided to close the operation, close down the money accounts and announce a guarantee of $250,000 per account so there wouldn’t be further panic out there.
If they had not done that, their estimation is that by 2pm that afternoon, $5.5 trillion would have been drawn out of the money market system of the U.S., would have collapsed the entire economy of the U.S., and within 24 hours the world economy would have collapsed. It would have been the end of our economic system and our political system as we know it.
We are no better off today than we were 3 months ago because we have a decrease in the equity positions of banks because other assets are going sour by the moment.
oh you blueneck – you messed me up on my rant. O well, thats the fun part.
Peace everyone and thank you for your patience.
oh and one last thing cause now I’ve read your post. Blueneck – if this is true, then this is a big piece of news. Don’t you think? Lets not be obscure. If this occurred, the American citizens have a right to know. This should be public info.
Please shed more light on this if you are able.
meanwhile, I will be studying my Periodic Tables including the beeriodic one. Ah, a trip back to November….
I think it’s terrifying, whether it actually happened or was just a scare tactic. I find either option scary as hell.
I can’t shed much light on it, other than I had heard this referred to but not explained during a CSPAN TARP hearing. The other day, I heard Alan Specter speaking on the floor of the Senate announcing the “compromise” (sellout, IMO) and he said this:
“I have already noted certain grave concerns which I have. One is the rush to judgment which we’re a part of. And perhaps a necessary part, when President Obama came to speak to the Republican caucus recently, when my turn came to ask a question, I said “why are you wedded to February 13th? That’s too fast to digest a bill of this magnitude.” I said that we had passed a $700 billion bailout bill, TARP, where we didn’t know what was in the bill, and we didn’t have regular order, hearings, questions, cross-examination, or committee work on the markup line-by-line of the committee report. We didn’t even have floor debate. We made a lot of mistakes. They were compounded by the administration carrying it out.
I voted against the release of the second $350 billion. I said, Mr. President, let’s not do it again. There is nothing magical about February 13th before we start the week of recess for President’s Day. The President responded, emphasizing the severe nature of the problem and telling us all, which he has told us privately, about the serious problems which he sees, which his advisors see with any delay at all. So we are responding to his timetable. I don’t like it, but I’m responding to it.”
It sounded eerily familiar to me. Anyway, someone posted this on a discussion forum and I thought it was big news.
Perhaps you tell me what to make of it, because I am completely bewildered. Is Kanjorski lying? Have we all been snookered?
Anyway, I apologize for interrupting your rant, I’ve never posted here before (although my sister and I are avid readers of Elaine’s) and I guess I put this in the wrong place. Oops. 🙂
An article you might enjoy. And the readers comment that follow the article show they still believe in the fantasy that Michael is talking about!

You’ve done very good work on the west coast earthquake issues. However, I think a “new” Fort Tejon style eartquake is about to occur before any major seismic event up in the Washington area.
Keep an eye out thataway.
Who is the author of this blog? Would appreciate at least contact info to engage in the topics you are writing about. Your focus on Asian economic issues is interesting and am sure there are some who want to engage in a dialogue with you.

The Big Things That Matter

Wow, I just found your blog. Been reading a bit, and find much of what you post true and honest. I just don’t understand how our main stream media is so FUBAR-ed that none of this gets any play on air.

Yes, I too descend from the European Ruling Class – the Clan Ó Néill of Ireland, who were kicked out of Eire in 1603 and have lived everywhere on earth since, most notably Portugal, Spain and the USA.
I’m also good friends with members of the Hapsburg’s of Austria and several Carolingian families of France & Germany – and we ALL agree our time is returning soon.
Meanwhile, good friends in Alabama have embarked on that coming time earlier that the rest of us and with some modest success:

WRONG RON !!!!!!! Just leave the debt plantation:
Why spill blood – sweat & tears over fancy toilet paper? Just leave and let them eat their own debt.
“You’ve done very good work on the west coast earthquake issues. However, I think a “new” Fort Tejon style earthquake is about to occur before any major seismic event up in the Washington area.”
PFO Replies – I’ll take that bet!!! Too much activity in the intersection of the Pacific – Juan De Fuca – North American plates in the past year:
Keep up the good work Elaine . . .
