A Prayer Request

A Prayer Request 10-20-05

I have been working on a legal weapon for nine months that is now ready to deploy. It would surely guarantee a victory but that like a stalemate versus a checkmate. My request is for wisdom since I have no peace in using this tool. God knows the path to take and a man’s soul can always be tempted by peace and comfort. Therefore ask that I be guided for the best possible outcome for all. I have about two weeks before I have to decide. Again, for those who do not have a relevant prayer life ignore this post.

Kurt: Whatever decision you make, I hope you do have PEACE in your decision as you prayerfully consider all of your options carefully & seriously. Victories are always better than stalemates unless there is somethings I need to understand. You've got to do whatever you need to do, and God will do the rest and make it work for the benefit of all. I hope whatever you decide, it is not irreversible and you still have options and you have no regrets in whatever decision you make. God bless you in your time of decision.


you will know them by their fruit said...

You are not going ot like God's answer.

You have invented your concept of God in order to justify your actions.

Read the Bible and find God. That is my prayer for you.

nofollowers said...

shut the fuck up with all this religious bullshit. Kurt all you do is blabber on about nothing. You keep saying that you have all these weapons that you are just about to release and they never end up getting released. Its the same crap over and over again. We are all the refunds that were supposed to be given back? Stop making promises that you cannot keep. You keep talking about the clients that complain and whine and need to do their homework, how can you blame people for being pissed off after they are losing their homes from listening to you and then getting screwed over. Wake up man, you need to see what you did to create these situations. You told people to stop making payments and also to not worry because you guys would take care of any court issues and you completely sold us out. I know from first hand experience seeing what happened. Kurt, you need to be honest with yourself man and I think that everybody will see the truth. Stop making false promises to everyone and then maybe you will see a change in the way people act.

an appeal is pending and legislation
will probably resolve the issue.
i find the whole things quite interesting. pro se people are onto the missing note.

tcob247 said...

let me get this straight.

You only want us to pray if we pray the way you want us to?

Trying to manipulate the Almighty there Kurt?

How about keeping some of the promises you've made in the past.
That would be a start.

You don't play no-limit holdem with God

son of a prophet said...

For those of you inclined to pray, I have posted this before and will post this again now........

Here is Wisdom from the Holy Spirit....

All prayer can be distilled down to only two requests...



It doesnt get any simpler than that my friends.

If one wants to add a 2a), then

2a) PRAY FOR OTHERS TO DO THE SAME (ie., thay they may also know and do Gods will)

Praying for anything else is

praying for your will to be done, not GODs.

Peace of Yeshua be with you.

We have had some interesting post in this blog as well as some trash. Kurt claims to have another powerful WMD - I say use it. If you have something thatcan end this once and for all then stop taking and start doing.

In some wierd way, I see that all of this on some level is related. The banks, the war in the middle east, oil prices, the tax guy trial. It is all leading up to the end times.

Mogel - your right on the money and son of a prophet - I agee with you on your prayer - great advice.

Make sure your right with God and help someone when you can.

Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful. And pray for us, too, that God may open a door for our message, so that we may proclaim the mystery of Christ, for which I am in chains. Pray that I may proclaim it clearly, as I should. Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity. Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.

Judge Roy Bean said...

The best possible outcome for all is for Kurt to go to trial and be shown the fool and scammer that he really is and be sentenced accordingly.

Then the other promoters and agents should be prosecuted.

Those two things will help prevent other scammers from luring victims into these situations.

Amen to the good judge.

I found this interesting - I guess I can cut & paste too!

The United States Is In Deep Doodoo!

United States Congressional Record - March 17, 1993 - Vol. #33, page H-1303 - Speaker- Rep. James Traficant, Jr. (Ohio) addressing the House:
"Mr. Speaker, we are here now in chapter 11. Members of Congress are official trustees presiding over the greatest reorganization of any Bankrupt entity in world history, the U.S. Government. We are setting forth hopefully, a blueprint for our future. There are some who say it is a coroner's report that will lead to our demise."


Imagine for a moment that someone inherits a farm. Let's say that the farm has good topsoil, a good well, good breeding stock, good seed, and excellent farm equipment in good repair. Prior to passing into the control of the present owner the farm did a good business selling vegetables, meat, and dairy products to the local market, and it made a small profit.
But let us suppose for a moment that the present owner of the farm doesn't understand farming, or isn't even really interested in learning. The present owner has no objection to standing around looking good, so he stays at the farm, standing in front of it, looking good to passers by.

Of course, the bills still come in, so our farmer puts them on his credit card. When that bill comes due he uses another credit card, Then another. Pretty soon the interest payments alone are higher than his bills and the banks get nervous and call him. No problem. Our farmer sells the tractor, takes the money around to the various credit cards, the food store, the utilities, and pays off all his bills. Then he stands around in front of the farm looking good to passers-by, the lord of his domain.

Will, the bills still come in. Again the credit cards get loaded up. So, this time our farmer sells the harvester. Then later on, the cattle, then the chickens, then the seeds, then he leases the well to his neighbor and finally sells the top soil from his farm to another farm down the road whose soil is getting tired. The cash is taken around to the various creditors, the food store, the utilities, etc.

Now at this point, our farmer thinks everything is okay. The bills are paid, he has a little cash in his pocket, and everything is fine.

Of course, you know better. The farm simply does not exist any more; it's just an empty lot with a few buildings, and soon they will be gone as well. The path from the farmer's present condition to seizure of the property for unpaid taxes is a foregone conclusion, even if the farmer doesn't look far enough ahead to see it.

Poor, dumb, stupid farmer.

That farmer is our government, and our business leaders.

Just as our hypothetical farm has lost its soil, livestock, seed, and farm equipment, America has lost its manufacturing ability. Short sighted business leaders, with as little interest in manufacturing as our farmer had in farming, decided their own personal bonuses would be higher if they simply sold their factories rather that ran them. After WW2, the 27 American TV companies including Zenith, Emerson, RCA, GE, etc. led the world in TV technology. Then, the owners of the patents on TV technology decided they didn't need to dirty their hands by actually making the TV sets themselves any more, and they started selling licenses to manufacture, which the Japanese bought.

By 1987, the only remaining American TV company is Zenith. The patent holders get their money, but the American products which can be sold overseas are gone, along with the jobs to make them.

The same happened in high-tech electronics. The integrated circuit was invented in the United States. But rather than focus on selling integrated circuits, the companies that owned that technology sold the machines to MAKE integrated circuits around the world, and now America sells very few chips anywhere. The patent holders have their money, but the cash flow from sales of manufactured goods, and the jobs that go with them, are gone. When Seymour Cray needed custom chips for his supercomputers, he had to order them from Japan.

The same thing has been happening in aviation. The airplane was invented in the United States, and through the 60s, we sold a lot of them around the world. But lately, all aircraft sales to foreign countries involve "offsets", a portion of the core technology that gets licensed to the purchasing nation and gets manufactured there. Bit by bit, the core technology gets bled off, taking with it jobs, and cash flow from the sale of those manufactured products. Along the way, the rights to manufacture American inventions outside America leak away on a steadily increasing basis. Even the mighty F-16 is now being manufactured overseas, under license.

To cover the loss of manufacturing jobs, our government has invented the catch phrase "service economy". This is the idiotic notion that we don't need to actually sell manufactured products; that we can grow and prosper our nation by doing each other's laundry. To conceal the loss of manufacturing jobs, the government has legislated into existence thousands upon thousands of useless paper-shuffling jobs, and declared their necessity by fiat. The most obvious is the income tax which has been so obfuscated by the government that half of you had to rely on an outside expert to figure out just what all those incomprehensible words really meant. By this device, the government has replaced those jobs that made products to sell with an equal number of jobs that produce nothing whatsoever of any worth, except to keep the unemployment figures down. This over-burdening of the American people with gratuitous regulations and paperwork has accomplished nothing except to obfuscate the loss of manufacturing jobs, and to transform the American character from innovators and inventors creating new products to that of minor clerks, peeking under each other's seat cushions for lost change.

So, with most of our manufacturing now gone, just what DOES America make? Trouble, mostly. With 4% of the world's population and 18% of the economy, we have 50% of all the lawyers, all looking to make a killing by looting those few industries that still call America home (like Microsoft). Kids don't want to be scientists and engineers; they've seen how little such people are valued in our country. Based on recent history, kids see the "big bucks" are in corporate law, specifically investment banking, leveraged buyouts, greenmail, junk bonds, in short what other countries describe as "trying to make money grow by shaking it side to side".

With America's ability to actually produce products that can compete on the open world market in decline, it's no wonder that the balance of trade is the problem it is. Nobody buys our export products because we just don't make that many any more, and like or not, we have to buy our appliances from the people who make them, which are NOT Americans. (When Ampex invented the VCR, they didn't even bother trying to find an American company to make it, they immediately sold the rights to Japan).

So, what do all these countries on the plus side of the trade imbalance do with their surplus billions? Well, they have been loaning it right back to us!

Our government engages in a practice politely called "deficit spending". Other terms which would aptly describe the practice include "counterfeiting" and "check kiting", but it all comes down to the same thing; spending money one does not actually have.

What would be a jailable offense for a normal citizen was rendered legal for the government by the Federal Reserve Act. This was not a popular piece of legislation. In fact the Democrats had campaigned in 1912 on a platform of rejection of the creation of a private bank in charge of a fiat money system. Nevertheless, on December 23, 1913, taking advantage of the absence of congressmen opposed to the creation of a fiat monetary system during the Christmas break, the Federal Reserve Act was passed.

Years later, during the great depression, Congressman Louis T. McFadden (who served twelve years as Chairman of the Committee on Banking and Currency) asked for congressional investigations of criminal conspiracy to establish the privately owned 'Federal Reserve System'. He requested impeachment of Federal officers who had violated oaths of office both in establishing and directing the Federal Reserve -- imploring Congress to investigate an incredible scope of overt criminal acts by the Federal Reserve Board and Federal Reserve Banks. McFadden even suggested that the Federal Reserve deliberately triggered the great stock market crash of 1929, in order to eventually force the passage of the Emergency Banking Act of March 9, 1933, which suspended the gold standard.

In describing the FED, McFadden remarked in the Congressional Record, House pages 1295 and 1296 on June 10, 1932:

"Mr. Chairman, we have in this country one of the most corrupt institutions the world has ever known. I refer to the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal reserve banks. The Federal Reserve Board, a Government Board, has cheated the Government of the United States and he people of the United States out of enough money to pay the national debt. The depredations and the iniquities of the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal reserve banks acting together have cost this country enough money to pay the national debt several times over. This evil institution has impoverished and ruined the people of the United States; has bankrupted itself, and has practically bankrupted our Government. It has done this through the misadministration of that law by which the Federal Reserve Board, and through the corrupt practices of the moneyed vultures who control it".

Why all the fuss over the gold standard?

Well it goes back to the original Founding Fathers and the meaning of the word "dollar". "Dollar" is actually a weight measure of silver, 371.25 grains, to be exact. Our American silver dollars are actually heavier, since other metals were added for durability. But that 371.25 grains of silver WAS the dollar, matching in weight an unbroken chain of accepted monetary units that reached back through the Spanish Milled Dollar, the Dutch Daller, back to the German Thaler; the product of a silver mine which sold it's product in coins of an exact weight. The Coinage Act of 1792 defined our dollar to exactly match in weight the silver dollars in use around the world, and then defined the gold dollar to be that amount of gold which would equal the worth of silver in a silver dollar, 24.75 grains, 1/15 the weight of the silver in a silver dollar.

So, what's wrong with this? Nothing really. When you, as a citizen, hold a silver dollar or a gold dollar in our hand, you hold that actual worth of metal. Nothing the government can do can change the worth of the money in your control.

Take the Roman Silver Denarius pictured above. The Roman Empire is long gone, but the money that Rome issued still has worth because the coins themselves had inherent worth. Long after the collapse of the empire, Roman silver coins were still used as money, because the silver in the coin itself did not depend on the issuing government for its worth.

Of course, carrying around too much coin can be bothersome, so many nation, including our own, issued paper notes as a convenience. But that paper currency of the nation was just a convenience. The gold and silver certificates were merely "claim checks" for the equivalent weight of gold or silver held in the treasury, and which would be produced on demand when the certificate was presented. But in the end, the lawful dollar of the United States was 371.25 in silver, or 24.75 grains of gold.

The problem with this system from the point of view of the government or the banks is that it limits the amount of money they can work with. When the bank runs out of silver or gold (or the equivalent certificates) it can no longer lend any more money with which to earn interest. When the government runs out of gold or silver (or the equivalent certificates) it can no longer spend money (just like the rest of us).

The immediate effect of ending the gold standard was that with the paper dollar no longer legally dependent on 371.25 in silver or 24.75 grains of gold, more paper dollars (now called "Federal Reserve Notes") could be printed, their worth no longer under the control of the citizens but under the control of the issuing central bank, based on the total number of dollars printed (or created as credit lines). The more dollars which are created out of thin air, the less each one is worth.

A federal Reserve Note.

The swindle of the system is simple. The Federal Reserve Bank hires the US Treasury to print up some money. The Federal Reserve only actually pays the treasury for the cost of the printing, they do NOT pay $1 for each 1$ printed. But the Federal Reserve turns around and loans out that money (or credit line) to banks at full face value, those banks which have exhausted their deposits then loan that Federal Reserve fiat money to you, and you must repay it in the full dollar value (plus interest) in work product, even though the Federal Reserve printed that money for pennies, or created it out of thin air in a computer.

As the Federal Reserve overprints more money, the money supply inflates, and too much money starts chasing too few goods and services, which means prices go up. But contrary to the charade put on by the Federal Reserve, inflation doesn't just come and go due to some arcane sorcery. The Federal Reserve can halt inflation any time it wants to by simply shutting down those printing presses. It therefore follows that both inflation and recession are fully under the control of the Federal Reserve.

Over time, that excess of printing has destroyed the value of that dollar you think you have. If you want to know by just how much, go out and try to purchase 371.25 grains of silver right now. Usually, the deterioration is gradual. Sometimes, it has to be obvious, such as the 1985 devaluation (done to halt the trade imbalance) which triggered the Japanese real-estate grab in this country.

Many politicians have attempted to reverse this process. John F. Kennedy issued an Executive Order 11110, requiring the Treasury Department to start printing and issuing silver certificates for the silver then remaining in the US Treasury.

Kennedy decided that by returning to the constitution, which states that only Congress shall coin and regulate money, the soaring national debt could be reduced by not paying interest to the bankers of the Federal Reserve System, who print paper money then loan it to the government at interest. This was the reason he signed Executive Order 11110 which called for the issuance of $4,292,893,815 in United States Notes through the U.S. Treasury rather than the traditional Federal Reserve System.

John F. Kennedy's United States Note.

That same day, Kennedy signed a bill changing the backing of one and two dollar bills from silver to gold, adding strength to the weakened U.S. currency.

Kennedy's comptroller of the currency, James J. Saxon, had been at odds with the powerful Federal Reserve Board for some time, encouraging broader investment and lending powers for banks that were not part of the Federal Reserve system. Saxon also had decided that non-Reserve banks could underwrite state and local general obligation bonds, again weakening the dominant Federal Reserve banks".

Kennedy's E.O. was never implemented following his assassination, and shortly afterwards, United States silver coins were taken out of circulation and replaced with the copper clad slugs in use today. These two events, the failure to print new silver certificates, and the substitution of worthless slugs for our silver coins, may explain why the Warren Commission included on its panel John J. McCloy, a man with no experience in crime, law enforcement, or national security, but who had been the President of the Chase Manhattan Bank.

It should be noted that the banks themselves are still using the gold standard. Accounts are still settled between major national banks by the transfer of gold bullion.

So here we are with a bank that legally counterfeits the money you borrow but expects a full value (plus interest) repayment. But what's good for the Federal Reserve is good for the government itself, and this is where we get back into that funny word "deficit spending". The government spends more money than it takes in. It has for many years now. The Federal Reserve, being the only lawful source of this fiat money, prints up the excess cash the government needs (or manufactures a credit line in a computer). This extra cash is treated as a loan, in order to keep the government overspending from further eroding the worth of the dollar in the world market. The government (meaning the taxpayers) is on the hook for the full face value, plus interest.

But there's another problem. The government is borrowing so much money that it drives the interest rates up! You pay MORE interest on your mortgage, car loan, and credit cards, because the government cannot balance its books. That extra interest you pay is therefore another hidden tax. The government, in its "generosity", gives you a tax credit on mortgage interest that is higher because of their own borrowing!

During the 80s, as exports dropped, and jobs moved from manufacturing to lower paying "service sector" jobs, the US tax base declined. In order to keep the jobless rate from rising, a massive defense program called the Strategic Defense Initiative was cranked up, but since this program produced no exportable product, it produced no taxable sales revenues, and hence the money poured into the project accelerated the government decline into debt. Because manufacturing was on the decline, fewer start-up companies were approaching the lending institutions, so the government loosened up the rules (while increasing the insurable deposit limit) to allow "investments" in more high risk ventures, most of which turned out to be frauds, or worse, money laundering operations for drug criminals. This includes Whitewater, Flowerwood, and Castle Grande. Despite shifting the S&L loss primarily onto the taxpayers (to reassure foreign investors that the taxpayers still made America a safe place to park their surplus cash) the government plunged further into debt.

In the 12 years of the Reagan/Bush administrations, the United States went from being the world's largest creditor nation to the world's largest debtor. Many of those nations which had enjoyed huge trade surpluses started loaning that profit back to the United States with the stipulation that we work on our manufacturing, clean up our infrastructure, raise taxes, in short, clean up our act, so that investment in America makes sense!

However, we didn't quite do that.

There has been some shuffling around to try to conceal the real scope of the problem. Over the last several years, the Federal Government has been sending less tax money back to the states than it takes in in taxes. This means that the states have to borrow MORE money to cover their obligations. The net result is that the debt is being transferred to the states, to conceal its true size. The government will easily admit to a $3 trillion "publicly held" debt, grudgingly concede that it's "unfunded liability" brings that number to almost $7 trillion, but the real hard truth is that total government debt, state and federal, is now over $14 trillion dollars, or about 50,000 for every man, woman, and child inside the United States. Since 1960, the taxpayers have shelled out $15 trillion in interest payments alone, while the principal continues to rise.

Yet another stunt the government has pulled is to "borrow" from the various trust funds under its control. Some $2 billion has vanished from the trust accounts of Native Americans (presently suing the Departments of the Interior and Treasury), and nearly ¾ of a TRILLION dollars has been removed from your Social Security retirement trust fund and spent in the last 8 years.

If the government has to borrow your retirement money when things are supposed to be so good, under what conditions can it repay the money? Or is that government IOU in your retirement account merely a promise to either tax you a second time or stiff you on the benefits you thought you were paying for?

In the last 8 years, during what are supposed to be record setting good times, the Federal government has nearly DOUBLED its debt load. The estimated interest on the debt equals all the personal income tax paid by all Americans. Our government is so deep in debt that it cannot get out.

This brings us to the issue of collateral. We've borrowed so much money the lenders are getting nervous. Back during the Johnson administration Charles DeGaulle demanded the United States collateralize the loans owed to France in gold and started carting out the bullion from the treasury. This caused several other nations to demand the same and President Nixon had to slam the gold window closed or the treasury would have been emptied, since the United States was even then in debt for more money than the treasury could cover in gold.

But Nixon had to collateralize that debt somehow, and he hit upon the plan of quietly setting aside huge tracts of American land with their mineral rights in reserve to cover the outstanding debts. But since the American people were already angered over the war in Vietnam, Nixon couldn't very well admit that he was apportioning off chunks of the United States to the holders of foreign debt. So, Nixon invented the Environmental Protection Agency and passed draconian environmental laws which served to grab land with vast natural resources away from the owners and lock it away, and even more, prove to the holders of the foreign debt that US citizens were not drilling. mining, or otherwise developing those resources. From that day to this, as the government sinks deeper into debt, the government grabs more and more land, declares it a wilderness or "roadless area" or "heritage river" or "wetlands" or any one of over a dozen other such obfuscated labels, but in the end the result is the same. We The People may not use the land, in many cases are not even allowed to enter the land.

This is not about conservation, it is about collateral. YOUR land is being stolen by the government and used to secure loans the government really had no business taking out in the first place. Given that the government cannot get out of debt, and is collateralizing more and more land to avoid foreclosure, the day is not long off when the people of the United States will one day wake up and discover they are no longer citizens, but tenants.

The following map shows the current extent of all lands grabbed by the government under the guise of environmentalism.

In short, the United States is in deep trouble. We have lost a huge amount of our manufacturing capacity, and those products we still make do not compete well on the world market, despite the steady devaluation of the dollar. In short we have vast debts to pay and little to pay them with. Like the foolish Farmer we have sold the machinery that allowed us to prosper, and we stand around shaking our investment portfolios back and forth in the hopes that the money inside will somehow grow all by itself. It won't. It never has. The very best that can be said is that money gets moved from one person to the other.

Those nations and banks to whom we owe money have been very patient indeed with us. They know that our economies are so tightly entwined that what hurts America will hurt them. But sooner or later, possibly after a market crash, someone, in order to pay their own debts, will demand their loans to the United States be paid. Rather than get caught with "bad paper", there will be a run on the United States government.

In addition to the government debt of $14 trillion, our businesses are home to trillions more in foreign investment, kept here by the promise that the American taxpayer will be made to cover all losses. But with our manufacturing in decline and our schools producing far more lawyers than anything else, it should be obvious to the prudent observer that the American taxpayer, even if so inclined, may not be able to cover the losses of their own government, let alone a foreign investor. That has to be making them nervous as well.

This brings us to the "equities markets", most notably the stock market. Over the last several years a constant media harangue has assured us that the soaring numbers of the stock market are the sole measure of how good our economy is. But close examination of those high-priced stocks reveals that most are heavily over-valued; their price the result of market forces rather than underlying worth (earnings ability)., as one example, has had a terrific run-up of its stock price, even though the company itself has yet to show a profit.

The government has admitted to using covert means to prevent a market downturn; to keep the stock prices at an artificially high and overvalued level, in order to wave those impressive numbers about as "proof" that everything is okay so that the taxpayers go back to work and pay more taxes. But in order to keep those stock prices up above their actual worth, demand must be maintained to keep the prices high. In other words, NEW investors must constantly be brought into the bottom of the pyramid to keep the prices of the stocks at the top from dropping. Hence the onslaught of commercials luring neophyte investors into the stock market via "online trading". Like any Ponzi scheme, the stock market will collapse when no more new buyers can be dragged in at the bottom. As the market starts to stutter, governments (most recently Britain) have moved to dump huge reserves of gold onto the world market to depress gold prices and deter investors from deserting the stock market for gold.

Some years back I worked on the film version of "The Day The Bubble Burst", and in between playing a stock broker, I got to spend some time with the show's consultant, Mr. William Hupt, who had been on the trading floor in 1929 as it all fell apart. He still had, framed, that last strip of ticker tape that ushered in the Great Depression, and he shared some stories which have a bearing on what is going on today.

The first story Bill shared is that there had been early indications of a dangerously over-valued market, running to deep on margin, and like the Plunge Protection Team, the largest investment houses, in particular the House of Morgan, attempted to reverse the early corrections by purchasing large blocks of stock in order to create market demand and drive the prices back up. It worked all but the last time.

The second story Bill shared was that a friend of his, riding up to his office in September of 1929, overheard the elevator operator chatting about his own stock portfolio, and his investments. Something about that image of an elevator operator playing the market set off warning signals, and Bill's friend immediately liquidated his entire portfolio, just in time to miss the great crash. Many people, including the actor Charlie Chaplin, had recognized the "recruitment" of that segment of society that did NOT have risk capital as new investors as a desperate attempt to prop up an overvalued market, and got out in time to save their own personal fortunes.

In the end, there is no such thing as a free lunch. You cannot make money grow in value by shaking it back and forth from one bank to another. You cannot prosper a nation by doing each other's laundry, or filling out their government mandated and greatly obfuscated paperwork, or flinging stock certificates around which may have as little real worth as Federal Reserve Notes. To make money, to show a profit, you must make products that somebody else wants to buy, and sadly, that is a capability the United States has allowed to slip away in great measure. The "service economy" was political propaganda to make the public believe that the decline of our manufacturing ability was a good thing.

Our nation is broke, bankrupt, and having sold much of its machinery and technology (or given it away to political donors), is unable to easily return to those endeavors which once made our nation great. Our infrastructure is in decay (the percentage of roads in the US with major damage doubled last year alone), our public schools unable to produce a workforce able to function in a high-tech manufacturing environment, and those managers end engineers with manufacturing experience have in great part been lured away to other nations. The severity of our total government debt has reached a point where the promise that the taxpayers can be made to cover any foreign investment loss rings hollow, because we can no longer pay the debts our government has now.

Our nation is in trouble. We don't make many of the products we used to make. Consequently we don't have the products to sell that we used to. We don't even make most of the products we need ourselves (like that computer you're staring at this very moment). Result: we have a massive trade imbalance. Cash is flowing out of the nation, and it's not coming back in anywhere near as fast. There's no way to spin it; that is a major problem. Our nation is becoming poorer, it is hopelessly in debt, and all the artificial escalation of stock prices cannot conceal that.

And as the artificially pumped up stock market continues to decline, the true scale of the economic horror which is the product of decades of government corruption, will become apparent to all.


A very good book on the subversion of our money system is, "Money" by Jim Ewert, and is available at


Joe Smith started the day early having set his alarm clock (MADE IN JAPAN) for 6 a.m. While his coffeepot (MADE IN CHINA) was perking, he shaved with his electric razor (MADE IN HONG KONG). He put on a dress shirt (MADE IN SRI LANKA), designer jeans (MADE IN SINGAPORE) and tennis shoes (MADE IN KOREA).
After cooking his breakfast in his new electric skillet (MADE IN INDIA) he sat down with his calculator (MADE IN MEXICO) to see how much he could spend today. After setting his watch (MADE IN TAIWAN) to the radio (MADE IN INDIA) he got in his car (MADE IN GERMANY) and continued his search for a good paying AMERICAN JOB.

At the end of yet another discouraging and fruitless day, Joe decided to relax for a while. He put on his sandals (MADE IN BRAZIL) poured himself a glass of wine (MADE IN FRANCE) and turned on his TV (MADE IN INDONESIA), and then wondered why he can't find a good paying job in.....AMERICA.....

Maybe I'm desperate and really gullable, but does this two more weeks Kurt is talking about coincide with what the Swami is talking about on Wildcardz? He keeps talking about a project that starts in two weeks and some big announcement coming in November.

Tony Tuba said...

Have you read what Swami said on Wildcardz? What are the odds that "such events" are on the same timeline as Kurt? Last week Swami said three weeks. This week Swami said two weeks just like Kurt. That's one heck of a guess Tcob or one incredible coincidence.

Bush orders Fitzgerald fired and espionage indictments quashed

by Tom Flocco

Washington, DC—October 21, 2005—12:00 EST— exclusive—

Today Special Counsel Patrick Fitzgerald handed over 22 indictments to Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez, accusing President George W. Bush, Vice President Richard Cheney and others of espionage, obstruction of justice, perjury and a variety of other charges in the matter of the CIA/Valerie Plame leak-gate case.

According to intelligence sources who spoke with federal whistleblowers Thomas Heneghan and Stewart Webb, Bush then ordered Gonzalez to fire Fitzgerald and have the indictments quashed and sealed.

Gonzalez refused to release the indictments which have been handed down by the grand jury and ordered served by a judge, subjecting the Attorney General to additional charges of obstruction of justice, the sources said.

The indictments confirm our original “Bush-Cheney indicted” report on August 2, 2005.

Gonzalez was Bush’s former personal White House counsel before receiving a presidential appointment as U.S. Attorney General.

The move is reminiscent of the “Saturday night massacre” when President Nixon fired Watergate Special Prosecutor Archibald Cox in an attempt to save his presidency and obstruct justice.

Intelligence sources added that Bush tried to delay publicity about his attempt to fire Fitzgerald and quash the indictments this afternoon by ordering a diversion regarding a “Capitol Hill police attempt to disrupt a suspicious package in a car near the U.S. Capitol.”

The move to distract attention from the indictments occurred not long after the receipt of process by Gonzalez, according to intelligence sources with knowledge of the events.

While Gonzalez received the service of indictments, Bush was in California this morning and was scheduled to speak at the dedication of the new Air Force One pavilion at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in California.

It can be assumed that Bush’s orders for Gonzalez to refuse receipt of process and fire the prosecutor in the CIA leak case were discussed over the telephone since Bush was to speak at the Reagan Library just a few hours after the indictments were served.

Bush should have finished his speech at approximately 2:30 pm Eastern time, and it is probable that presidential strategy sessions regarding how to prevent the indictments and their criminal contents from becoming public have already commenced.

It is open to conjecture whether Bush could be arrested in California before even returning to Washington, given the criminal nature of the indictments.

An attempt to quash indictments and to fire Fitzgerald may also cause a constitutional crisis if Bush and Gonzalez continue to obstruct justice and defy U.S. law and constitutional legal process.

Intelligence sources told that the military or U.S. marshals should arrest Bush, Gonzalez, Cheney and others immediately for their criminal acts in keeping explosive espionage, obstruction and perjury indictments hidden from the American people, all of which affects U.S. national security.


If this Flocco guy is wrong he should be shot.

String of crises put Bush agenda in doubt

News analysis by Judy Keen, USA TODAYFri Oct 21, 7:16 AM ET

Some Republicans are lamenting President Bush's "lost year" and wondering if he can salvage his agenda. Vice President Cheney is giving pep talks to White House staffers as supporters brace for the possible indictments of Bush's top adviser and Cheney's chief of staff.

Bush and his team have had difficult days before, but the autumn of his fifth year in the White House finds him in his worst slump ever. A USA TODAY/CNN/Gallup Poll released Monday found that just 39% approve of the job he's doing, the lowest rating of his political career.

"Bad news tends to move in bunches, and this White House has had more than its share," says Republican pollster Whit Ayres. "When you are in one of these periods, the best thing is to keep your head down, stay focused on the job and wait for your luck to change."

The attitude in the White House is "we have enough to worry about that we can do something about, so we're spending our time and energy focusing on those things," says Dan Bartlett, Bush's counselor.

It wasn't supposed to work out this way. Bush and his advisers began the year with an ambitious agenda that was meant to prevent the second-term doldrums that plagued Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton, elevate Bush's place in history, and help Republicans extend their governing majority in the 2006 elections.

A historic reorganization of Social Security was the first item on the plan. This fall, Bush intended to roll out a guest-worker program that would dramatically change immigration policies. Then he was going to embark on an unprecedented overhaul of the tax code.

"It could be a lost year," Republican strategist Bill Dal Col says. Adding personal retirement accounts to Social Security is probably dead. "There seems to be a diminished appetite in the short-term" for that sort of change, Bush said on Oct. 4. The administration plans to push for votes next year on immigration and tax-code changes. "They've got some issues (at the White House) that have maybe distracted them a bit," says Sen. Judd Gregg (news, bio, voting record), R-N.H. "But (Bush) is still moving forward on his agenda."

Challenges on many fronts

For now, Bush seems to be struggling to find his footing:

• He has disappointed many in the conservative bulwark of his party - the voters instrumental in twice electing him president - by nominating White House counsel Harriet Miers to the Supreme Court. Conservatives had hoped that he would nominate a proven conservative in the mold of justices Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas.

The White House's challenge now is not to win Democratic senators' votes, but to hold on to enough Republicans to confirm her.

• Bush envisions that a democratic Iraq would be the catalyst for historic changes across the Middle East that would diminish the threat of terrorism and spread freedom.

Although Iraqis passed a constitution last week, violence continues in Iraq and democracy's advance in the Middle East is not rapid. In a USA TODAY/CNN/Gallup Poll last month, 53% of Americans said that the Iraq war was a mistake.

• The inadequate federal response to Hurricane Katrina undermined Bush's claim that he has made the government more competent. Jesse Jackson and other critics say the response raises doubts about his empathy for the minorities his party is trying to recruit. It distracted Bush for weeks as he made eight trips to the region to demonstrate his concern.

The huge price tag of cleanup and reconstruction limits Bush's options for future spending and makes it less likely that he will be able to fulfill a pledge to halve the federal budget deficit by 2009.

• The investigation into the leaking of the identity of CIA operative Valerie Plame could have implications for Bush's future success.

Reporters have told a grand jury that two of the administration's most powerful officials - deputy White House chief of staff Karl Rove and I. Lewis Libby, Cheney's top adviser - discussed Plame with them. Whether they or anyone broke the law has yet to be determined by the special prosecutor looking into the matter.

Investigations into possible wrongdoing have also touched Republican leaders of Congress and may hurt all Republican candidates next year.

The Securities and Exchange Commission is looking into Senate Republican leader Bill Frist's sale of family stock from a blind trust. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay was forced to leave his post after he was indicted on charges related to campaign financing. Both Frist and DeLay say they've done nothing wrong and hope to be exonerated before the elections.

"When you are under siege and you have to react to every day's crises and the media are in a feeding frenzy, it is hard to stay on message, let alone in control of your message," says Lanny Davis, who helped Clinton manage crises such as probes of his campaign fundraising.

"When problems reach a critical mass, as they have in this White House, a feeling of futility and a total lack of control sets in."

What has been accomplished

Bush's supporters say he has accomplished a lot despite his recent problems. John Roberts' nomination as chief justice was a success. A Central American trade agreement, a budget that extended some tax cuts, a highway bill and a law limiting payments in class-action lawsuits were passed this year, notes Republican strategist Charlie Black.

"We haven't had a bad year," he says. "Some things will be delayed ... but the president has three years to accomplish his agenda."

Rep. Tom Cole (news, bio, voting record), R-Okla., who hopes to be the next chairman of the GOP's House campaign committee, says the party's congressional candidates will "be in a difficult situation if the poll numbers are the same next November." But he says there's time to turn things around, particularly if Republicans can rack up some legislative victories.

Republican Newt Gingrich, a former House speaker, has a more apocalyptic view. "This is the biggest turning point for the Republicans since Ronald Reagan won the nomination in 1980," he says. "We either are going to change substantially and become the party of change again or we're going to end up defending the indefensible."

Contemplating limits on home-mortgage tax deductions and taxing some employer-provided health benefits - recommendations from Bush's tax-code commission - and defending the government's growth during Bush's tenure, Gingrich says, are "dead losers" and won't attract voters to the GOP.

So what should Bush do? Gingrich says he should call a joint session of Congress, admit failures after Katrina and lay out "11 things we're going to do right now."

Dal Col says Bush must "step up and show the leadership he proved after 9/11."

Ayres says Bush has plenty of time to recoup. People, he says, "always underestimate George Bush, and they are still doing it."

U.S. intelligence officials say Abu Musab al-Zarqawi has expanded his terrorism campaign in Iraq to extremists in two dozen terror groups scattered across almost 40 countries, creating a network that rivals Osama bin Laden's.

In interviews, U.S. government officials said the threat to U.S. interests from al-Zarqawi compared with that from bin Laden, whom al-Zarqawi pledged his loyalty to one year ago.

The director of the National Counterterrorism Center considers bin Laden a strategic plotter who is deep in hiding and out of regular contact with his followers, while al-Zarqawi is involved broadly in planning of scores of brutal attacks in Iraq.

"He is very much a daily, operational threat," said Scott Redd, who is in charge of the government's counterterrorism strategy and analysis.

In figures not made public before, counterterrorism officials say that Zarqawi's network of contacts has grown dramatically since the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq in 2003 and now includes associates in nearly 40 countries in the Middle East, Africa, Asia and Europe.

Those Muslim extremists are members of at least 24 groups, from Hezbollah in Lebanon to much smaller organizations in Indonesia.

Al-Zarqawi is now seen as the top general who is putting in place al-Qaida's long campaign to establish an Islamic society throughout the Middle East, with Iraq at its heart.

The 38-year-old Jordanian got a taste of extremism when he went to Afghanistan in 1989 to join the jihad against the Soviet Union. He has evolved into a media-driven terror mastermind who is blamed for bombings across Iraq, including Shiite mosques, and the beheadings of foreign hostages, beginning with American Nick Berg in May 2004.

Al-Zarqawi is a hero to extremists. One of the London suicide bombers equated al-Zarqawi with bin Laden and al-Qaida's No. 2 leader, Ayman al-Zawahri. In a video released last month, the bomber cited the three as his heroes.

Like bin Laden, al-Zarqawi has managed to evade capture, despite the attention he has garnered and a $25 million U.S. bounty.

U.S. officials say al-Zarqawi is believed to be traveling around the Euphrates River Valley of western Iraq's Anbar province — an area the size of Florida, much of which is uninhabited desert.

Current and former government officials say he moves as often as every four hours. They say he relies on an extensive "early warning system" of associates who use Iraq's cellular network, high-power cordless phones, computers and other means to let him know when U.S. and Iraqi forces are moving toward his location.

All these officials spoke on condition of anonymity because of the information's sensitive nature.

Al-Zarqawi keeps a low profile and does not talk on cell phones, intelligence officials said. He is thought to be protected by various tribes, which, like all Muslims, follow a Quranic code requiring them to shelter one another.

He also is helped, said one U.S. intelligence official, by the fact that there is not a large, constant American military presence in Anbar, but rather pockets of forces that are bolstered during operations. Iraq's largely Shiite security forces do not want to go to the Sunni-dominated area, either.

U.S. and Iraqi forces have managed to kill or capture a number of al-Zarqawi's deputies, most recently Abu Azzam, in battles and air strikes

U.S. intelligence officials said they nearly have captured al-Zarqawi several times. They got exceptionally close in February when he was pursued by U.S. forces in Anbar. But he jumped from his vehicle and hid under an overpass while his driver and another associate were captured.

His network remains somewhat of a puzzle. The U.S. officials say precise figures on its size are hard to come by, as are details about how his associates coordinate with the native Iraqi insurgency, largely made up of Sunnis.

One U.S. intelligence official said just 2 percent to 5 percent of attacks, generally those involving suicide bombers, can be directly blamed on al-Zarqawi.

Al-Zarqawi has 2,000 to 5,000 hard-core fighters, while the larger Iraqi insurgency easily numbers over 20,000, with over 100,000 broadly defined supporters.

The persistence of their attacks and subsequent media exposure have made al-Zarqawi the public face of al-Qaida and the broader insurgency. He has become so central to al-Qaida's operations that some evidence suggests he is providing money to bin Laden.

In a letter released this month containing the group's battle plan, top deputy al-Zawahri asked al-Zarqawi to send money — 100,000, without being clear about denomination. The letter's authenticity is in dispute.

The letter and other communications also point to some differences between al-Qaida's central leadership and al-Zarqawi, including over whether to Zarqawi should be attacking Shiite Muslims and the direction of the jihad.

Al-Zawahri sees Iraq as the beginning of a campaign to set up an Islamic society in the Middle East and wants al-Zarqawi to think outside of Iraq.


Either blow up the whole Middle East or get the Hell out..because we won't be able to stop terrorism.. WE NEED TO MIND OUR OWN BUSINESS AND WE'LL BE JUST FINE.

Or do you not even know what you support and why you suppport it? You are a little puppet and easily

I do not want to live in a country with people exactly like you.

I have a feeling if you got your libertarian friends in there you would end up being unhappy with them eventually

It's not a perfect world pal.

You don't have enough honor and intefrity to shine my sons Army boots

Keep up your hate while he does his job

That ain't no joke either! Starfish, you do need to go live in another country since you hate it here so much. You can't even count the blessings around you. You are warm in your beliefs. You are an angry person and it shows. Look at your own posts.

Thank God that we can live in a country where we can say what we believe and not get persecuted for it because your slander would be cause for treason. That would happen to you in other parts of the world - you would be tried and persecuted for slandering the president of that country.

I don't see Bush persecuting anyone. You are the only person here who has hate about himself. Everyone else is fine. There might be some fun bantering back and forth but nothing like you have coming out of your hot head.

Have you finished high school yet? I doubt that you are even stable in your Christian faith. Try a church in your area, a good bible believing church and bible study. Make some Christian friends, man, and be held accountable for your anger, speech, and actions.

Do your research too. You'll find the truth eventually. But, you may not be open to that from what I and others can read.

At least most Mormon's believe that.. hehe.

getmeoffthisride said...

No thanks, you've done a great job detracting. If you think that this is such a great country to live in then act like it.

You are still warm in your beliefs whether they are political or Christian. You use the bible not for correction but when it's convenient for you.

Ephesians 3:1-17 (Rules for holy living) Since,then, you have been raised with Christ, set you rhearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you will also appear with him in glory. Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature; sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed which is idolatry. Because of these, the wrath of God is coming. You used to walk in these ways, int the life you once lived. But now you must rid yourselves of all such things as these; ANGER, RAGE, MALICE, SLANDER, AND FILTHY LANGUAGE FROM YOU LIPS. Do not lie to each other since you have taken off your old self with its practices and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator. Here there is no Greek or Jew, circumcised or uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave or free, but Christ is all, and is in all. Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as teh Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity. let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as emembers of one body you were called to peace. AND BE THANKFUL. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdeom, and as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, wheter in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.

If you are truly a Christian and want to change the way things are, here's the way to do it. Maybe you can get people to listen to you then. But the way you are now, no one will listen to you.
