The first is from Bill Gross, the co-founder of PIMCO and shaman of all things bond. In his most recent investment letter, which can be read here, he said:

“Unfair though it may be, an investor should continue to expect an attempted inflationary solution in almost all developed economies over the next few years and even decades. Financial repression, QEs of all sorts and sizes, and even negative nominal interest rates now experienced in Switzerland and five other Euroland countries may dominate the timescape. The cult of equity may be dying, but the cult of inflation may only have just begun.”

Thanks Obama! July’s gas price jump was highest in 12 years! : Fire Andrea Mitchell!

Thanks Obama! July’s gas price jump was highest in 12 years! : Fire Andrea Mitchell!: Mmm, mmm., mmm Barack Hussein OILbama. While the economy continues to crumble, and Obama continues to block oil drilling, gas prices shot up in July for their biggest jump since 2000. You know, when BJ Bill Clinton was president? I guess gas dropped too much (to about $3.32 per gallon) for Obama and the radical leftists approval. Gas prices are still double what they where when Obama’s reign of terror began. I’m sure Bush will get the blame for this though. Or maybe it’s ATMs? Japanese earthquakes/tsunamis?


According to AAA, July’s increase was the biggest since 2000. As of July 31, the average national price for regular hit $3.50, up from $3.32 the month before. Today’s average price is $3.52.

Obama Campaign Sues to Restrict Military Voting

Obama Campaign Sues to Restrict Military Voting: President Barack Obama, along with many Democrats, likes to say that, while they may disagree with the GOP on many issues related to national security, they absolutely share their admiration and dedication to members of our armed forces. Obama, in particular, enjoys being seen visiting troops and having photos taken with members of our military. So, why is his campaign and the Democrat party suing to restrict their ability to vote in the upcoming election?

Lughnasadh - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: Lughnasadh or Lammas is also the name used for one of the eight sabbats in the Wiccan Wheel of the Year. It is the first of the three autumn harvest festivals, the other two being the Autumn equinox (also called Mabon by Wiccans) and Samhain. It is seen as one of the two most auspicious times for handfasting, the other being at Beltane.[22] Some Wiccans mark the holiday by baking a figure of the "corn god" in bread, and then symbolically sacrificing and eating it.

Vacant Detroit becomes dumping ground for the dead | NewsOK.com

Vacant Detroit becomes dumping ground for the dead | NewsOK.com: DETROIT (AP) — From the street, the two decomposing bodies were nearly invisible, concealed in an overgrown lot alongside worn-out car tires and a moldy sofa. The teenagers had been shot, stripped to their underwear and left on a deserted block.


They were just the latest victims of foul play whose remains went undiscovered for days after being hidden deep inside Detroit's vast urban wilderness — a crumbling wasteland rarely visited by outsiders and infrequently patrolled by police.


Abandoned and neglected parts of the city are quickly becoming dumping grounds for the dead — at least a dozen bodies in 12 months' time. And authorities acknowledge there's little they can do.


"You can shoot a person, dump a body and it may just go unsolved" because of the time it may take for the corpse to be found, officer John Garner said.

Obama Campaign Sues To Restrict Military Members From Voting… « PBN – News, Opinion, Truth & YOU!

Obama Campaign Sues To Restrict Military Members From Voting… « PBN – News, Opinion, Truth & YOU!: obama enjoys being seen with members of our military having his photo taken, and visiting them, so why is he and his regime suing to restrict their ability to vote in the upcoming election?


On July 17th, the Obama for America Campaign, the Democratic National Committee and the Ohio Democratic Party filed suit in OH to strike down part of that state’s law governing voting by members of the military. Their suit said that part of the law is “arbitrary” with “no discernible rational basis.”


Currently, Ohio allows the public to vote early in-person up until the Friday before the election. Members of the military are given three extra days to do so. While the Democrats may see this as “arbitrary” and having “no discernible rational basis,” I think it is entirely reasonable given the demands on servicemen and women’s time and their obligations to their sworn duty.

Mississippi NAACP leader sent to prison for 10 counts of voter fraud

Mississippi NAACP leader sent to prison for 10 counts of voter fraud

While NAACP President Benjamin Jealous lashed out at new state laws requiring photo ID for voting, an NAACP executive sits in prison, sentenced for carrying out a massive voter fraud scheme.
In a story ignored by the national media, in April a Tunica County, Miss., jury convicted NAACP official Lessadolla Sowers on 10 counts of fraudulently casting absentee ballots. Sowers is identified on an NAACP website as a member of the Tunica County NAACP Executive Committee.
Sowers received a five-year prison term for each of the 10 counts, but Circuit Court Judge Charles Webster permitted Sowers to serve those terms concurrently, according to the Tunica Times, the only media outlet to cover the sentencing.
“This crime cuts against the fabric of our free society,” Judge Webster said.

RNC Research - Welcome To The Recovery That Wasn’t



Two Years After Premature Proclamations Of Recovery, The Buck Stops Anywhere But Obama

August 2, 2010: Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner Writes An Op-Ed Titled “Welcome To The Recovery” (Timothy Geithner, Op-Ed, “Welcome To The Recovery,” The New York Times, 8/2/10)


  • Geithner Attributed A Shaky Recovery Here To The European Fiscal Crisis.We saw that this past spring, when the European fiscal crisis posed a serious challenge to the markets and to business confidence, dampening investment and the rate of growth here.” (Timothy Geithner, Op-Ed, “Welcome To The Recovery,” The New York Times, 8/2/10)
June 8, 2012: Obama Had Blamed Headwinds For The Economy “At Least 17 Times In The Past Three Years.” “Headwinds. President Barack Obama has talked about them — what the American economy still faces as it recovers from the worst recession since the 1930s — at least 17 times in the past three years.” (Mark Silva, “Obama’s ‘Headwinds’ Echo In Ad,” Bloomberg, 6/8/12)


July 30, 2012: At A Campaign Fundraiser In New York, Obama Again Warned That “We’re Going To Have Some Continued Headwinds Over The Next Several Months….Europe Is Still A Challenge.” “‘We’re going to have some continued headwinds over the next several months,’ Obama said. ‘Europe is still a challenge.’” (Margaret Chadbourn, “Obama Warns Of Economic ‘Headwinds,’ Sees Euro Surviving,” Reuters, 7/30/12)
Obama Promised To Hold Himself Accountable
Obama: “As President Of The United States, It’s Pretty Clear To Me That I’m Responsible For Folks Who Are Working In The Federal Government And You Know, Harry Truman Said The Buck Stops With You.” OBAMA: “Well, here’s what I know, we were just talking about responsibility and as president of the United States, it’s pretty clear to me that I’m responsible for folks who are working in the federal government and you know, Harry Truman said the buck stops with you.” (“President Obama Says Romney Should Answer Bain Capital Questions,” WJLA, 7/13/12)
Obama Said “I Expect To Be Judged By Results.  And There’s No — I’m Not Going To Make Any Excuses.” OBAMA: I expect to be judged by results.  And there’s no — I’m not going to make any excuses.  If stuff hasn’t worked and people don’t feel like I’ve led the country in the right direction, then you’ll have a new President.” (President Obama, Remarks At Fort Myers Town Hall, Fort Myers, Fl, 2/10/09) 
In 2009, Obama Said “If I Don’t Have This Done In Three Years, Then There’s Going To Be A One-Term Proposition.”  OBAMA: “That’s exactly right. And — and, you know, a year from now I think people — are going to see that — we’re starting to make some progress. But there’s still going to be some pain out there. If I don’t have this done in three years, then there’s going to be a one-term proposition.” (NBC’s “The Today Show,” 2/2/09)
But Obama Is No Stranger To Excuses For His Failure To Fix The Economy
Reuters: “Part Of [Obama’s Campaign] Pitch Will Include Steering Attention To Outside Forces As Causes For Economic Woes At Home.” “That bump is a political challenge for the president, whose re-election in 2012 may depend on his ability to convince voters that his economic policies have been successful. Part of his pitch will include steering attention to outside forces as causes for economic woes at home. The president did just that in his weekly radio and Internet address, broadcast Saturday, by highlighting ‘head winds’ that are affecting the United States.” (“Obama Blames Europe, Japan For U.S. Economic Woes,” Reuters, 6/4/11)
  • In The Third Year Of His Administration, Obama Blaming Anyone Else For The Economy Is “Downright Silly.” “Within the first six months or even a year of a new administration, it’s fair game to blame predecessors for any problems. Indeed, it’s a legitimate and time-honored tradition by presidents of both parties. But such arguments get much less convincing as the second year comes to an end. Once into the third year, such claims sound downright silly. Gradually, any president and any administration take ownership of the problems facing the country.” (Charlie Cook, “Owning It Democrats Are In A Corner On Their Ownership Of The Economy And What They Can Do To Help Turn It Around,”National Journal, 6/6/11)
  • Obama Blamed ATMs And Airport Kiosks For His Failure To Create Jobs. “[T]here are some structural issues with our economy, where a lot of businesses have learned to become much more efficient, with a lot fewer workers. You see it when you go to the bank and use an ATM — you don’t go to a bank teller. Or you go to the airport, and you’re using a kiosk, instead of checking in at the gate.”  (NBC’s “Today,” 6/14/11)
  • “So Far, He Has Blamed The Stagnant Economy On ATMs, Ditches, Slurpees, Corporate-Jet Owners, The Tea Party, Republicans, Japan’s Earthquake, The Arab Spring, The Arab Summer, George Bush, And ‘Fat-Cat’ Wall Street Something-Or-Others. The Kitchen Sink May Be Next.” (Salena Zito, “Battlegrounds Of Resentment,” Pittsburgh Tribune-Review8/28/11)
Obama Tried To Blame The Japanese Earthquake And Arab Spring For Poor Economic Numbers. OBAMA: “Let me start by saying a few words about our economy.  There is no doubt this has been a tumultuous year.  We’ve weathered the Arab Spring’s effect on oil and gas prices, the Japanese earthquake and tsunami’s effect on supply chains, the extraordinary economic uncertainty in Europe.  And recently, markets around the globe have taken a bumpy ride.” (President Barack Obama, Remarks, Washington, D.C., 8/5/11)
Obama’s Treasury Secretary Geithner Has Also Taken To Blaming Everyone But His Own Boss. TREASURY SECRETARY TIM GEITHNER:“While the economy is regaining strength, we still face significant economic challenges. Unemployment is still far too high, the housing market remains weak, and the overall effects of the financial crisis remain an obstacle to growth.  The strength of our recovery will depend in part on events beyond our shores, as we saw last year when U.S. growth was buffeted by headwinds from Europe.” (Secretary Tim Geithner, House Committee On Appropriations, U.S. House Of Representatives, Testimony, 3/28/12) 
Obama Fails To Acknowledge His Responsibility For The Failing Economy While More And More People Call It His Own
ABC’s Matthew Dowd Says That “The President Is Now Responsible” For The State Of The Economy. DOWD: “Let’s switch now to the economy and the President got into a little hot water over his comments about “you didn’t build it” that he made. Many people think a gaffe is really a politician accidentally telling the truth, which people think. But I want to focus, Robert, on the 1.5% GDP number that came out on Friday. Many people think that is an extremely anemic number, that that’s not the kind of growth that we need. Do you think the president – Well the President is now responsible. Is this the president’s economy, does he own this economy? Should he be held accountable for whatever happens in this economy?” ROBERT GIBBS: “Well, look Matthew, the President is the President of the United States. He understands where the buck stops. We also understand what we inherited.” (ABC’s “This Week With George Stephanopoulos,” 7/29/12)
CBS’ Bob Schieffer Says That “Our Economy Is Really Just Limping Along” And That “It Is President Obama’s Policy.” SCHIEFFER: “I can’t let you off the hook with asking you about some pretty dismal economic figures that came out Friday. Our economy is really just limping along. It is President Obama’s policy. He’s been there for a long time now. So with the election just 100 days away now, Congresswoman, is the President running out of time here in terms of turning this economy around?” REP. WASSERMAN SCHULTZ: “Well, we have made progress from where we were when President Obama took office, when the economy had just contracted almost by 9%. Now we’ve begun to turn things around and had our 12th straight quarter of growth.” (CBS’ “Face The Nation,” 7/29/12)
Former Secretary Of Labor During The Clinton Administration Robert Reich Says Of Obama That “It’s His Economy Now, And Most Voters Don’t Care What He Inherited.” “In Ohio yesterday, Obama reiterated that he had inherited the worst economy since the Great Depression. That’s true. But the excuse is wearing thin. It’s his economy now, and most voters don’t care what he inherited.” (Robert Reich, “The Jobs Doldrums And Obama’s Future,” The Huffington Post, 7/6/12)

Wall Street Already Betting On Who Wins in November - U.S. Election 2012 - CNBC

Wall Street Already Betting On Who Wins in November - U.S. Election 2012 - CNBC: With just 100 days left until the U.S. presidential election, investors are beginning to make bigger bets on which candidate will carry the day.

One analysis concludes that last week's sharp three-day market surge can only mean that Wall Street is banking on a victory from Republican Mitt Romney.


That's the logical interpretation one can draw from a rally amid conditions that otherwise would demand a selloff, Morgan Stanley chief U.S. equity strategist Adam S. Parker said in an analysis that asserts there is no other reason now to like stocks than a Romney win.

The Agony Scene - Rattle Me Bones Lyrics

The Agony Scene - Rattle Me Bones Lyrics


Blinded by fear and deception.
Sing the praise of the fraudulent.


They turn their backs, avert their eyes and fall in line.
Resist, suffer for the sins of our fathers.
Left us to die, hopeless and praying for the end.


Words of fear and intolerance.
Distorted sense of morality.
Twist a message of love and forgiveness.
Justify your hatred, without regard to validity.


They turn their backs, avert their eyes and fall in line.
Resist, suffer for the sins of our fathers.
Left us to die, hopeless and praying for the end.

Supreme Court affirms fundamental right to bear arms

Supreme Court affirms fundamental right to bear arms: The 5 to 4 decision does not strike down any gun-control laws, nor does it elaborate on what kind of laws would offend the Constitution. One justice predicted that an "avalanche" of lawsuits would be filed across the country asking federal judges to define the boundaries of gun ownership and government regulation.


But Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr., who wrote the opinion for the court's dominant conservatives, said: "It is clear that the Framers . . . counted the right to keep and bear arms among those fundamental rights necessary to our system of ordered liberty."

Supreme Court affirms fundamental right to bear arms: Monday's decision might be more symbolic than substantive, at least initially. No cities have laws as restrictive as the handgun bans in the District and in Monday's case from Chicago and its suburb of Oak Park. Although the court's decision did not specifically strike down those laws, Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley said it will make the city's 28-year-old law "unenforceable."

Poverty, gun control point to Liberalism's end | WashingtonExaminer.com

Poverty, gun control point to Liberalism's end | WashingtonExaminer.com




It wasn't supposed to go this way for liberals
like President Obama and congressional Democratic leaders. But just
four years after the euphoric 2008 election, they've lost control of two
symbolic issues: poverty and gun control.




Conservatives are seizing on a new report
that poverty is reaching the highest levels since the 1960s-era War on
Poverty began and also the lack of calls for gun control following last
Friday's mass shooting in a Colorado movie theater showing the new
Batman movie.



"Certainly liberalism is dead," said R. Emmett Tyrrell Jr., author of a new book, "The Death of Liberalism."


Giddy Conservatives told Secrets that the
failure of the two crown jewels of liberalism, ending poverty and
limiting gun ownership, are a sign of a political sea change in the
nation.



What's more, they credit Obama for the shift,
noting that since he slapped gun owners in 2008, he has backed away from
calling for limits, even during his weekend meeting with the families
of the Colorado shooting victims. They also point to the growth of
welfare and food stamp usage under Obama.



Tyrrell is head cheerleader of the effort to
hang the fading of liberal policy on the president, writing in his book
that Obama is the "pallbearer" of liberalism.



In an interview, Tyrrell, the founder and
editor of the conservative American Spectator, suggested that the war on
poverty and gun control have failed from a lack of new ideas and
misguided focus on side issues.



"Consider, there are unprecedented levels of
poverty under Obama despite an enormous proportion of the federal
programs now being devoted to eliminating poverty and the Messiah simply
calls on the electorate to redouble its expenditures--very dramatic!"
he told Secrets with his trademark flair.



And, he added, "With roughly 200 million guns
loose in the country a maniac commits vast carnage in Colorado and the
New York Times, in its headline, claims we are all 'reviving debate' on
gun control. We can not even control our borders but somehow we are
going to gather up two hundred million guns. As I say liberalism is
dead--brain dead and otherwise."

Oregon criminalizes permaculture; claims state ownership over all rainwater - ponds and swales restricted - jail time for violators

Oregon criminalizes permaculture; claims state ownership over all rainwater - ponds and swales restricted - jail time for violators






(NaturalNews) There's nothing more refreshing than standing in a cool,
summertime rain shower. Or bathing in the warm sunlight on a crisp
spring day. Or inhaling the cool autumn air, fresh with the scent of
turning leaves and pine needles. These things -- rainwater, sunlight,
air -- have long been assumed to be not only free, but un-claimable. You
can't claim to own the sunlight that falls on my front yard, for
example. A corporation can't claim intellectual property ownership over
the air that you breathe and demand you pay a royalty for inhaling.

But
today, Jackson County, Oregon says it owns YOUR rainwater, and the
county has sentenced a man to 30 days in jail and fined him over $1500,
for the supposed "crime" of collecting rainwater on his own property.

The
man's name is Gary Harrington, and he owns over 170 acres of land in
Jackson County. On that land, he has three ponds, and those ponds
collect rainwater that falls on his land. Common sense would say Gary
has every right to have ponds with water on his 170 acres of land, but
common sense has been all but abandoned in the state of Oregon.

Much
like California, Oregon is increasingly becoming a collectivist state.
You didn't build that! The government built that! You don't own that!
The government owns that! That rainwater that just fell on your land?
That's the government's rainwater, and you're going to jail if you try
to steal from the government!

That's the explanation from Jackson
County officials, who initially granted Harrington "permits" to build
ponds back in 2003. Yes, in Oregon you actually need to beg for
permission from the government just to have a pond on your own land. But
the state of Oregon revoked his permits a few years later, after he had
already created the ponds, thus putting Harrington in the position of
being a "water criminal" who was "stealing" rainwater from the state.

Tom
Paul, administrator of the Oregon Water Resources Department, is an
obedient water Nazi. He insists, "Oregon law that says all of the water
in the state of Oregon is public water and if you want to use that
water, either to divert it or to store it, you have to acquire a water
right from the state of Oregon before doing that activity."

What he means, of course, is not that the water is "public" water, but that it's government
water. The government owns it, and if you "steal" from the government
by, for example, collecting rainwater off your own roof, you will go to
jail.

Thus, even when rainwater falls on your own property, you
don't own it! The government owns it. You didn't build that! The
government built that. That's not YOUR land, you only lease it from the
King, and by the way, your property tax is due again...

Harrington
said that he will never stop fighting the government on this issue. As
reported in CNS News: "When something is wrong, you just, as an American
citizen, you have to put your foot down and say, This is wrong; you
just can't take away anymore of my rights and from here on in, I'm going
to fight it." (http://cnsnews.com/news/article/oregon-man-sentenced-30-days-jail-col...)



If states claim they own the rain, they may soon claim to own the sunlight, too

Rainwater,
it turns out, isn't the only thing that falls on your land. Sunlight
also falls on your land. Air resides above it, and minerals below it.


If
the state of Oregon already claims to own all the water that falls on
your land, what's to stop them from claiming ownership over all the
sunlight, too? Imagine a day when the state erects solar panels on your land, but the electricity isn't yours to keep. You still have to pay for it, because the sunlight belongs to the state, get it?


If
you erect your own solar panels on your own land, the state could then
arrest you and charge you with "stealing" state property. All those
photons, you see, belong to the state. Once the state declares sunlight
to be "community property," you instantly become a criminal for having
solar panels on your house.


State of Oregon declares war on permaculture and sustainable living

Collecting
rainwater -- and sunlight -- are practices taught in sustainable
living, permaculture and throughout the green movement. Rainwater
capture using ponds and swales is one of the most important strategies
for restoring a local landscape. See a good video overview of this here:

These
rainwater capture practices help trees grow more quickly and accelerate
the return of animal life to any region. They can even be used to restore a desert to a lush, food-producing forest. Watch these remarkable videos with Geoff Lawton:
