How Quantitative Easing Helps the Rich and Soaks the Rest of Us
At the same time, all Americans have seen the prices of basic goods increase over the past few years in large part due to rising commodities prices. The whole idea of QE is to drive investors out of lower risk investments like mortgage backed securities and government debt and get them to put that money in “more productive” use—lend it, build skyscrapers, invest in technology, etc. Since there is little confidence about the future of the economy, many investors have crowded into the stock market with their money, and still others have invested in commodities.
Quantitative Easing is Economic Suicide

Quantitative Easing is Economic Suicide
Understand the enormous "rewards" which a government receives for lying, by grossly under-stating the rate of inflation. Payouts on $100's of billions of U.S. government benefits per year are indexed to the rate of "official" inflation. By grossly understating inflation (and cheating all of the recipients of those benefits), the U.S. government can get an instant, multibillion dollar windfall from that one lie, alone (every year).
Neil Macdonald: The 'monarchs of money' and the war on savers
As Ros Altmann, a longtime pension manager and director of the London School of Economics, puts it, quantitative easing has amounted to a "monumental social experiment" — a large-scale transfer of wealth from older people to younger people.

14 United States Governors : Prepare State Militia Defenses, To Be Ready Against Obama’s Rogue Federal Forces!
Obama is angered by the several State Governors who have reestablished “State Defense Forces.” These forces are described as: “State Defense Forces (also known as State Guards, State Military Reserves, State Militias) in the United States are military units that operate under the sole authority of a state government; they are not regulated by the National Guard Bureau nor are they part of the Army National Guard of the United States. State Defense Forces are authorized by state and federal law and are under the command of the governor of each state. State Defense Forces are distinct from their state’s National Guard in that they cannot become federal entities.”

BOSTON TRUTH: The “Chechen Connection”, Al Qaeda and the Boston Marathon Bombings
”...the Chechen [family] background is maybe a part of what leads them [the two suspects] to do what they do,” said Lorenzo Vidino, an expert on Chechen militants at the Center for Security Studies in Zurich.” … A profile on the Russian social-networking site Vkontakte that appears to belong to Dzhokhar Tsarnaev includes a propaganda clip rallying jihadists to go to Syria to fight alongside rebels there, citing sayings from the Prophet Muhammad. [Amply documented, it just so happens that the jihadist foreign fighters in Syria are recruited by the US and its allies] (Wall Street Journal, op cit.)
Americans 'snapping' by the millions
Such a radical change cannot be accomplished while Americans are calm, happy, content and grateful for their blessings. Citizens must be unhappy and stressed out. Indeed, widespread popular discontent has always been the required fuel for leftist transformation.
Just reading a few pages into Saul Alinsky’s notorious “Rules for Radicals,” one encounters repeated confirmation that the very key to radical “change” is keeping the populace angry, encouraging their grievances, stoking their resentments and making sure they are continually upset. That is the primary psychological dynamic of “community organizing” – and America today is led by community-organizer-in-chief Barack Obama, a long-time master practitioner and instructor in Alinsky’s neo-Marxist agitation methods.

Printz v. United States
The question presented in these cases is whether certain interim provisions of the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act, Pub.

2006 FBI Statistics on Crimes Committed by Illegal Aliens
CaPoliticalNews ^ | November 12, 2006 | FBI/INS
comment by jap69
These above stats are from 2006. So what are the stats today. I did not take the time to look further. That is all I needed to see as I doubt things have improved since then.
During my search I seen another article of an estimated 12 homicides per day committed by illegal aliens. That adds up to 4,380 yearly.
Sort of looks that way I would think.
I see ICE picked up three in Boston Mass area in todays news.
Plus the FBI or whomever had these two brothers under survelliance the last few years.
Immigration reform. I think they might better tighten up on enforcement of current laws.
Obama Team Rolls Out Special Interest to Fight Special Interests
OFA may also differ in the size of its grassroots army, which it has inherited from Obama’s 2012 campaign. In the briefing Wednesday, officials with the new group laid out some numbers: Over 10,000 neighborhood team captains, 1,200 watch parties organized for the most recent State of the Union Address, over 100 events in recent weeks asking members of Congress to support greater gun control, 1.1 million people who have “done at least one volunteer action,” since the campaign ended, though “sending a tweet” counted as a volunteer action.
Gun control backers consider strategy after Senate defeat
The most striking example came from Obama's own campaign operation, Organizing for Action, which announced it would mobilize supporters against both Democrats and Republicans who opposed the background-check plan.
Obama angry in defeat
“The defeat raises questions about Obama’s ability to unify congressional Democrats and to mobilize supporters via his nascent Organizing for Action, a first-of-its-kind political machine controlled by the White House…. Conversely, his rivals may now feel emboldened to block Obama’s entire agenda.”

The document mentions “discretion” or “discretionary” 41 times.
Ann Coulter: Marco Rubio 'Lying' About Immigration 'Like Democrats'
Coulter quoted Rubio from Fox News Sunday, explaining his border security enforcement mechanism – something she described as a “merely meaningless goal.”
"Basically, Homeland Security will have five years to meet that goal,” Rubio said on Fox. “If after five years, Homeland Security has not met that number, it will trigger the Border Commission, who will then take over this issue for them.”
Was listening to Rush interview Rubio this afternoon about immigration.Only listenened for about 10 minutes as I was busy with other things.
Rush asked Rubio about border enforcement in the bill being enforced before other things kicking in. I could not beleive what Rubio said. Rubio said the immigration bill gives border security ten years to figure out how to enforce border security aftet the bill is passed.
TEN YEARS!!!! It takes ten years to figure out border security? If this country has not figured out how to enforce border security in over 200 years we have a bunch of dumb asses running this government.

Let us say right up front that we realize this case will be used by those on both
sides of the abortion debate. We ourselves cover a spectrum of personal beliefs about the
morality of abortion. For us as a criminal grand jury, however, the case is not about that
controversy; it is about disregard of the law and disdain for the lives and health of
mothers and infants. We find common ground in exposing what happened here, and in
recommending measures to prevent anything like this from ever happening again.

llegal Alien Propaganda: A Critical Lesson in Terminology and Tactics
Our nation’s laws constitute a contract that every citizen implicitly agrees to respect. Those who violate it face sanctions of corresponding severity. If certain individuals can avoid sanction and gain special privilege through political power—despite their blatant violations—then the rule of law becomes
meaningless, and is replaced by a society based on political power alone. That is called dictatorship. Yet this is what the illegal immigration lobby wants us to accept.
When dealing with Marxists, the “moderates” compromise away our rights, our livelihoods and our country to people and agendas that are inherently destructive to our society.
"then it stands to reason that it should also make you mentally incompetent to hold public office."
Spanky T Smackme • 38 minutes ago
Here is a good thought.
If taking an antidepressant makes you mentally incompetent for firearms ownership, then it stands to reason that it should also make you mentally incompetent to hold public office.
If you want to confiscate the guns, then you need to kick politicians out of office.
comment by jap69
What else is in this gun control bill to confiscate guns? Or could be added after the bill is signed at the discretion of the gun control agency head or added by executive order.
A persons opposition on a political issue?
Treatment for alcoholism?
Treatment for drug abuse?
Ones attitude about political parties?
Have school records of being a defiant individual?
The list can go on.

Obama Will Use Nixon-Era Law to Fight Climate Change
In taking the step, Obama would be fulfilling a vow to act alone in the face of a Republican-run House of Representatives unwilling to pass measures limiting greenhouse gases. He’d expand the scope of a Nixon-era law that was first intended to force agencies to assess the effect of projects on air, water and soil pollution.
While the Obama administration’s guidance could be easily rescinded by the next administration, the court rulings that stem from these cases will live on as precedents, Mannina said.
