This Is Our Second American Revolution

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterPin on PinterestShare on Google+Share on LinkedInShare on StumbleUponEmail this to someone

Nearly six years ago, my wife Meranda and I moved up to north Idaho in search of a better life.  We believed that it would be a place where we could work hard, raise a family and pursue our dreams without constantly having to deal with the long arm of big government interfering in our lives.  But of course big government is everywhere, and we have come to realize that if we do not stand up and fight for our way of life, someday it will be gone completely.

Today, the liberal elite dominate almost every aspect of our society.  Their enormous media corporations control more than 90 percent of the news and entertainment that we watch on our televisions, their dominance of the legal system has resulted in the legalization of abortion and gay marriage, and their relentless grip on public education means that an entire generation of young Americans is being indoctrinated in their ways.

And of course for decades the liberal elite have been accustomed to pulling the strings in both major political parties.  Many had believed that it would be impossible for us to ever take our government back, but the election of Donald Trump showed us that anything is possible if we will just work together.

Today, our Republic is hanging by a thread.  If our founders had not stood up and fought for their way of life, the United States of America would not exist today, and if we do not stand up and fight for our way of life now, there will be nothing to pass on to our children and our grandchildren.

There are many that believe that America is too far gone, and so they are content to sit back and wait for everything to fall apart.

But that is not my choice.

I choose to fight for America.

So today, on the 241st anniversary of our Independence Day, I am publicly announcing that I am running for Congress in Idaho’s first congressional district.

I have been called an “anti-politician” because I am not just another career politician looking for a job.  If I am sent to Washington, I plan to turn the tables over, dismantle the big government institutions that the liberal elite have constructed, and fight to restore our Republic.

If you are not familiar with me or my work, the following are 16 ways that I will be different from a typical Republican politician…

#1 Most Republican politicians tend to protect one another, but one of my campaign slogans is “Every RINO Needs To Go“.  We will never turn this nation in a positive direction until we clean up our own party first.  At this point Congress has an approval rating of about 16 percent, and it is time to flush the toilet.

#2 For decades Republicans have been using the Pro-Life label to get our votes and then betraying our values once they get into office.  If I am elected, I will use the full power of my office to go to war with Planned Parenthood.  I will NEVER vote for any bill, no matter what it says, if it includes even a single penny of funding for Planned Parenthood, and I will actively work to defeat any Republican politician that will not make the same pledge.  But I won’t be satisfied once Planned Parenthood is defunded.  My goal is to completely destroy Planned Parenthood as an organization, and I will greatly rejoice when the final Planned Parenthood clinic in America is finally shut down for good.

#3 I believe that every American citizen has a constitutional right to carry a gun, and I believe that government agencies that have been used to relentlessly harass gun owners such as the BATFE need to be shut down permanently.

#4 Many Republican politicians want to lower tax rates, but like Ron Paul I want to abolish the income tax and the IRS completely.  We didn’t have an income tax from 1872 to 1913, and that was the greatest period of economic growth in U.S. history.

#5 Another thing that I have in common with Ron Paul is that I want to abolish the Federal Reserve.  Since the Fed was created in 1913, the value of the U.S. dollar has fallen by about 98 percent and the U.S. national debt has gotten more than 5000 times larger.  The Fed is at the very heart of our debt-based financial system, and abolishing it is one of the keys to a bright economic future for America.

#6 I want to get the federal government off of the backs of our farmers, our loggers, our miners and our ranchers.  And so that is just one of many reasons why I want to abolish the EPA.

#7 I believe that we need to get the federal government out of the education business. I would abolish Common Core and the U.S. Department of Education, and I would return full control over education to the state level.

#8 I believe that it is time to “shut down Big Brother”.  The NSA has been conducting unconstitutional surveillance of American citizens for decades, and that needs to stop now.

#9 In his budget, President Trump proposed shutting down more than 60 different government programs and agencies.  I say that is a good start.  Instead of asking which government agencies we should close, we should be asking which government agencies should remain open.

#10 I am for a 100% repeal of Obamacare, and I believe that it is a disgrace to our party that half a year has passed and one of the worst pieces of legislation in the history of our nation still has not been repealed.

#11 I want to help Donald Trump build a wall on the southern border, and I believe that the Republicans in Congress that are trying to block the wall need to be held accountable by the voters.

#12 If I am elected, I will push for legislation that would give local communities all over America the option to say no to refugees.  The federal government should not have the right to force us to take Islamic refugees against our will, and the sexual assault of that precious little five-year-old girl in Twin Falls, Idaho by three Islamic refugees is just the tip of the iceberg of what will happen if changes are not made.

#13 I don’t care if it’s not politically correct – I will never be afraid to use the phrase “Islamic terrorism”.  The number of terror attacks keeps rising with each passing year, and those that don’t realize that we are in a war are in a complete state of denial.

#14 When Barack Obama entered the White House the national debt was just 10.6 trillion dollars.  When we gave Republicans control of the House of Representatives, the national debt was just over 14 trillion dollars.  Now it is close to 20 trillion dollars and we continue to steal more than 100 million dollars from our children and our grandchildren every single hour of every single day.  In a just society, those responsible for getting us into so much debt would be put in prison.

#15 Today, the federal government controls more than 60 percent of all Idaho land.  If I am elected, this is what my message to the feds will be: “Hand over the keys and get out of Idaho”.

#16 Unlike most politicians, I am not ashamed to say that I am a Christian. This nation was founded by Bible-believing Christians, and the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution were birthed out of the values and principles found in the Word of God. If we truly want to make America great again, we need to return to those values and principles.

Every generation of Americans has had to fight for liberty and freedom, and now it is our turn.

This is our time.

This is our second American revolution.

This revolution won’t be fought with guns and bullets.  Rather, it will be a revolution of ideas, values and principles.

We can take our country back, but we have to be willing to work together.  I am asking you to join us, because we are in a battle for the soul of our nation, and it is a battle that we cannot afford to lose.

If you would like to learn more about what I am trying to do, you can visit my official campaign website or my official campaign Facebook page.  Ultimately this is not about winning one election or getting a certain candidate into office.  Rather, this is about a movement to save our country.  My hope is that what I am doing will inspire many others to do the same thing.

2018 may be the most critical mid-term elections in our history, and we need good men and women to run for office all over the nation.  Individually, we can only accomplish so much, but together we can make a world of difference.

    Many of your positions are laudable and good, but your views regarding the Federal Reserve are way off the mark and you need to think those through with an understanding as what the Federal Reserve is and is not. The very same is true regarding the IRS as NOBODY is going to vote for defunding the US government which desperately needs MORE FUNDING (or massive spending cuts) not less. Your views on those issues like Ron Paul would DESTROY THE US ECONOMY nearly overnight and have ZERO CHANCE of getting any voter instance at all and are the key reasons why Ron Paul got practically no voter support at all.

    What some folks seem to want to replace the very conservative Federal Reserve of the US which has kept the supply of US dollars as measured by M2 right around $13.5 trillion is that it be abolished and turned over to the grossly profligate US Treasury for the purpose of the US Treasury printing an incredible and endless FLOOD OF US DOLLARS to be dumped into the US economy and used to pay for the $20 trillion federal debt increasing at an amount in excess of $1 trillion every year due to reckless deficit federal government spending.

    It is very much possible – as clearly stated right in the Federal Reserve Act – to AMEND OR REPEAL the Federal Reserve.

    The specific section relating to that is the final Section 31 of the Federal Reserve Act which states:

    Section 31. Reservation of right to amend

    The right to amend, alter, or repeal this Act is hereby expressly reserved.

    The primary purpose of the Federal Reserve System is to handle interbank clearance of all banking transactions in the USA through its 12 Regional Banks each of which has a bank President. Those functions would have to be entirely replaced if the FRACT (Federal Reserve Act) were to be repealed.

    Moreover, there would be huge additional costs to the US Treasury to take over those functions and others from the Federal Reserve. Currently, the Federal Reserve rebates more than 94% of it annual profits to the US Treasury. That now results in nearly $100 billion being paid by the Federal Reserve to the US Treasury as a result of its balance sheet having been expanded over the past 10 years from around $800 billion to now around $4.4 trillion.

    The Federal Reserve balance sheet consists primarily of 1) US Treasuries of around $2.5 trillion, and MBS (Mortgage Back Securities) Instruments of around $1.8 trillion.

    The Federal Reserve is now in the process of reducing its balance sheet by around 50% between now and the end of 2018 down to around $2.2 trillion.

    The Federal Reserve does not set any interest rates that matter in the US economy and only sets 3 interest rates:

    1) Federal Discount Rate (the rate at which banks borrow directly from the Federal Reserve for overnight liquidity purposes on a fully collateralized basis).

    2) Federal Funds Rate (the interbank borrowing rate at which banks borrow from each other strictly for liquidity purposes for very short terms (typically overnight) on a fully collateralized basis.

    3) IOER [Interest On Excess Reserves] (the rate paid by the Federal Reserve to member banks on their more than $2.5 trillion in funds in their excess reserves accounts inside the Federal Reserve).

    Not that it matters the slightest bit of a hoot, however, as the FDR and FFR are practically NEVER USED THESE DAYS given the fact that member banks are overflowing with vast excess reserves and have NO NEED WHATSOEVER to borrow from each other or from the Federal Reserve for overnight liquidity purposes.

    The Federal Reserve’s 3 interest rates that they do set have nothing whatsoever to do with the interest paid on savings accounts at US banks. Regulation Q which was a part of the now abolished Glass-Steagall Act set a MAXIMUM INTEREST RATE PAID TO SAVERS of 5.50% at banks but never set a minimum interest rate on savings accounts.

    All interest rates that do matter to the US economy are keyed off the yields (interest rates) on US Treasuries set in the $13 trillion a year US Treasuries markets which are now extremely and abnormally low due to FREE MARKETS bidding up the prices of US Treasuries, and prices on US Treasuries are INVERSE TO YIELDS as they are sold on a discounted basis. The reason that prices are so low is that there are around 3 bids to purchase every 1 available US Treasury and – like in all auctions – the highest bid wins which means the lower the yields (interest rates) as prices rise.

    All US Treasuries (government debt) are OWNED AS ASSETS BY THEIR HOLDERS and are a principal part of the US financial system as assets.

    Any attempt to eliminate US Treasuries (government debt) as assets in the US financial system would result in massive disruptions of assets and credit in the US economy. Around $7 trillion in new US Treasuries are issued each year by the US Treasury with proceeds from around $6 trillion of those new US Treasuries going to pay off in full the US Treasuries that mature each year and about $1 trillion going to new additional US federal government debt.

    For a more comprehensive review of the US Treasuries markets, see:

    http://www.TreasuryDirect.gov

    If the US Congress decided to repeal the Federal Reserve Act, then it would have to take over all of the assets and liabilities of the Federal Reserve and lose all annual income from the Federal Reserve of around $100 billion a year presently including the $3.8 trillion in liabilities to member banks for the balances of their RESERVES ACCOUNTS inside the Federal Reserve which are owed to member banks.

    The US Treasury would also have to create $20 trillion of US dollars out of thin air plus the $3.8 trillion due the banks for their reserves accounts inside the Federal Reserve if it chose to end all federal debt (US Treasuries) and eliminate the Federal Reserve.

    This would result in destruction of a $20 trillion asset class (US Treasuries) and replacement with US dollars printed out of thin air.

    If Congress under its new vastly expanded authority of the US Treasury simply chose to continue spending more than $1 trillion that it did expended without revenues to pay for it then the US money supply would have to be increased by at least $1 trillion a year to pay for that.

    The US Money supply would jump from $13.5 trillion at present to around $38 trillion from its present less than $14 trillion as soon as those changes were implemented.

    Likely, as a result of the nearly TRIPLING OF THE US MONEY SUPPLY the value of the US dollar would plummet dramatically and there would be vast inflation in the prices of good and services as a result.

    But, some folks would be happy apparently because there would be no more Federal Reserve in the USA.

      It is a private corporation. It’s shareholders profit while monetizing federal spending debt.
      The act was passed just before Christmas and in the wee hours of the morning, when Santa is supposes come down the chimney, to eat your cookies and milk….
      The Federal Reserve is not Federal and the US currency is a fiat currency since 1971… to say the least. This private corporation needs to go. A new monetary system for the US will evolve after the inevitable collapse of the US dollar.
      Her leaders can either grab the bull dozer by the horn or continue to roll in the red…
      Men like Ron Paul, who served very well in Congress, have much more understanding, insight and experience than the likes of you, and is far more weightier on what this country needs. He has my support.
      The Federal reserve will go, one way or another.
      Steal another’s wealth, a curse comes upon your house. America spends the future generations prosperity into bondage, and when you think about, should be of no surprise, for her judges allow the taking of the unborn, for profit. A culture of bondage and death….Both of which Ron Paul vehemently opposes, ….the very things you laud over.
      America is in for judgment,… repent, while there is still time. Call on the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and you shall be saved from this wicked and adulterous generation…

            Although I do appreciate the effort, I have been at this for over a decade now and there is nothing new under the sun that will surprise me in man’s writings and interpretations of Bible prophecy and keys to TKU.

            I have the best interpreter there is, or ever will be. I get it direct form the source via the Holy Spirit. Try it, you might like it.

            Maybe someone else will pick up on the link, and it will help them, if they have not yet tapped into the resource Of the Holy Spirit. So, in that regard, it may be a good starting point for someone, just not me.
            I moved past the breast milk a long time ago, and have now dug deep in to the meat. If something new comes along from man, I’ll be very surprised, as Jehovah, has promised He would tell me, and show me, all the things I need to know and understand. So far, he still amazes me all the time.

            so typical gsob. “stalled out”.
            I see you are locked into a never ending cycle of condescension towards other Christians that do not jump on your bandwagon of ideology.

            No true Christian is ever “stalled out” or ever learned enough. Some of us have tapped into the power of the Spirit, that is always present and offering up TKU.
            We just go with the flow of that and “listen” for the soft winds of wisdom, that some of you have to dig and grovel for in man’s writings. Some of those writings teach false doctrines that leave the reader and believer of that doctrine, in a vast desert of incompleteness, never quite fulfilling the void of ignorance.

      • SoCalBeachDude

        Your totally false conceptions regarding the Federal Reserve are just mind boggling and bogus.

        Each and every year the Federal Reserve rebates more than 94% of its profits to the US Treasury just as it has done for every year of its 103+ year existence. The member banks are all US banks and receive a 6% annual dividend and there are around 6,000 member banks in the United States.

        Who owns the Federal Reserve?

        The Federal Reserve System is not “owned” by anyone. Although parts of the Federal Reserve System share some characteristics with private-sector entities, the Federal Reserve was established to serve the public interest.

        The Federal Reserve derives its authority from the Congress, which created the System in 1913 with the enactment of the Federal Reserve Act. This central banking “system” has three important features: (1) a central governing board–the Federal Reserve Board of Governors; (2) a decentralized operating structure of 12 Federal Reserve Banks; and (3) a blend of public and private characteristics.

        The Board of Governors in Washington, D.C., is an agency of the federal government. The Board–appointed by the President and confirmed by the Senate–provides general guidance for the Federal Reserve System and oversees the 12 Reserve Banks. The Board reports to and is directly accountable to the Congress but, unlike many other public agencies, it is not funded by congressional appropriations. In addition, though the Congress sets the goals for monetary policy, decisions of the Board–and the Fed’s monetary policy-setting body, the Federal Open Market Committee–about how to reach those goals do not require approval by the President or anyone else in the executive or legislative branches of government.

        Some observers mistakenly consider the Federal Reserve to be a private entity because the Reserve Banks are organized similarly to private corporations. For instance, each of the 12 Reserve Banks operates within its own particular geographic area, or District, of the United States, and each is separately incorporated and has its own board of directors. Commercial banks that are members of the Federal Reserve System hold stock in their District’s Reserve Bank. However, owning Reserve Bank stock is quite different from owning stock in a private company. The Reserve Banks are not operated for profit, and ownership of a certain amount of stock is, by law, a condition of membership in the System.

    How do you expect to fund the $4 trillion a year federal government without the IRS and income tax? This is not the banana republic days of the early 1900s and before where America’s economy was tiny and irrelevant and could be funded with liquor taxes and tariffs. Attempting to impose $4 trillion in tariffs on imported goods would cause the biggest trade war in the history of the world and totally shut down and destroy the US economy which is the largest single country economy in the world presently.

    63% of all current federal spending now goes to Social welfare and medical costs. Are you going to simply eliminate those parts of government and tell them that there are no funds left to pay for Social Security and Medicare?

    • stop unconstitutional spending

      • SoCalBeachDude

        What spending done by the federal government of around $4 trillion a year is in any way “unconstitutional”at all. Please do tell.

        And just what federal government spending do you propose cutting and by how much in each category?

        Only 20% of the US government annual spending is for total military spending with 16% for actual military spending and 4% for Veterans Benefits.

        The biggest part of the spending is SOCIAL PROGRAMS including the Social Security and Medicare insurance programs which are NOT ACTUARILY SOUND and which are paying out vastly more than they have taken in with payroll taxes.

        A summary of the fiscal 2015 US federal government expenditures totaling nearly $4 trillion is as follows:

        WELFARE & MEDICAL (63%)
        33% Social Security, Unemployment, Labor
        27% Medicare & Health
        ..3% Housing & Community

        MILITARY (20%)
        16% Military
        ..4% Veterans Benefits

        INTEREST ON DEBT (6%)
        ..6% Interest on Debt

        FOOD & TRANSPORTATION (6%)
        ..3% Food & Agriculture
        ..3% Transportation

        EDUCATION & SCIENCE (3%)
        ..2% Education
        ..1% Science

        ENERGY, ENVIRONMENT, & INTERNATIONAL (2%)
        ..1% International Affair
        ..1% Energy & Environment

        OTHER EXPENSES (1%)
        ..1% Government Expenses (general)

        The complete breakdown of Fiscal 2015 expenditures is extensively detailed including actual numbers as well as pie-charts with various percentage breakdowns as to discretionary and non-discretionary expenditures at:

        https://www.nationalpriorities.org/budget-basics/federal-budget-101/spending/

        Unless you cut at least $1 trillion of that federal government spending, the US government will continue running up deficits and not have balanced budget and even if it does cut $1 trillion of spending there would be no room at all to lower federal taxes.

          • SoCalBeachDude

            But obviously you didn’t comprehend those facts at all, did you? All of the federal spending comes down to that list and MAKING CHOICES BY CONGRESS as to how to allocate spending among those big picture categories. Get it now?

            And just what do you expect to replace ELECTRONIC CURRENCY that runs the world today with? Beaver pelts? Glass beads? Sea shells? It certainly can’t be replaced with gold as there are only 180,000 tonnes of that stuff ever mined and 70% of it ever mined exists in the form of privately owned JEWELRY widely dispersed among the 7.5+ billion people of the world. If it were to all be somehow seized and divided equally among the world’s population each person would get less than 1/10 of one ounce each worth about $100 at today’s preposterously elevated prices for that plunging stuff which just suffered its biggest losses in 2017 this past week.

            Are you somehow not aware of that? Are you not aware it can’t be moved electronically in economies? Or was it beaver pelts that you had in mind for replacing US dollars which are used in more than 83% of all global financial transactions?

          • GSOB

            I’d let it all crash…The sooner the better. The politicians know this and hope it don’t happen under their watch, so it gets worse as the runaway spending and the fiat currency thrashes the economy with more debt. Let it crash and start over. This is more of a prepper site than a repair site for the FRB to garner a following. Prepare for the economic collapse

            No….. its to wrong to be made right. It can’t be set right. Gold and Silver should restrict the printing.

            Jesus came so that we may have life and have it abundantly. The incarnation of the Son of God as the Son of Man is the new creation. His word contains everything we need for every good work and His Spirit will set us free, for He give us His law-word live & govern ourselves by.

    Politics is 50% sales of yourself and positions, and you have to convince at least 50% of the voters in your district that they want to buy you and your positions. Do you really think that you can get 50% of the voters in your area to vote for you based on the platform you have outlined above?

      Absolutely.

        Just the promise alone to End the Fed, by saying that they are “an evil, unelected, unaccountable, unconstitutional, private banking cartel,” would get my vote. But who other than Ron Paul has said that so far?

            The so-called “gold standard” was just a very brief 60 year failed experiment in the US from 1873 until 1933 at which time it was totally discarded for any domestic purposes and all gold bullion confiscated and made illegal.

            All currencies are backed by the current and future assets and current and future labor and productivity of the citizens of the issuing country and the US is by far the largest single country economy in the world with an $18 trillion GDP with no other country even coming close.

            Nothing at all changed regarding the Federal Reserve and/or the US dollar in 1971. Nixon did not “abandon gold” at all. Nixon merely ended the Bretton Woods currency fixed exchange rate agreement which had been in force from 1944 to 1971.

            Nixon had nothing to do with the “gold standard” in the US which had long ago been TOTALLY DISCARDED BY THE US DOMESTICALLY back in 1933 and only a tiny shred of gold nonsense was even left in the form of international bank transaction convertibility which is what was discarded in 1971.

            The US government DOES NOT CREATE US DOLLARS AT ALL, but rather the FEDERAL RESERVE IS THE ONLY ENTITY THAT CAN CREATE US DOLLARS and it is NOT PART OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT which cannot create US dollars.

  • SoCalBeachDude

    The key reason as to why both Ronald Reagan and Donald Trump won as President is that they were FORMER DEMOCRATS and had very liberal views on most topics as well as a number of Democratic friends. Without that, quite frankly, neither of those two folks would have had enough appeal to win in the Presidential elections of 1970, 1984, and 2016 respectively.

      Liberalism is anti American. It has NO place in our Country, PERIOD!! Either live by our Constitution or LEAVE!.

      Liberalism is EVIL!!!!!

      • JC Teecher

        You nailed that one, however; there are a minority of liberal Millennials (for the most part) that have been brainwashed via liberal parents and a liberal educational system, and that danged liberal media.

        There is hope for them if they get the right message of love and truth, through biblical understandings. I hope to reach some of those with my website set to launch in the coming months. We will offer alternatives to the main stream establishment religionism, and try to reach some of the moderate liberals through sharing of information.

        Something I have learned through my many many contacts with people from all walks of life and varying backgrounds, that people do not respond well to brow beating and threats.
        We hope to allow for discussion based on facts and biblical principles, to open up moderate liberals to the idea that just maybe, they have been lied to and we can offer them the path to a much easier road ahead, even with all the pitfalls of tribulation that are sure to come in time.

        We will never get through to the hard core liberals as they are locked in tighter than a pit bull on a fresh ham hock, but; if we fish them gently and truthfully, instead of throwing the whole anchor on them, we might just open up some eyes, and hearts.

            It helps keep most of the groundhogs and raccoons off them, but those danged gophers. Fun playing whack-a-mole from the couch though.
            Reminds me of the time many years ago, while staying at the bug out cabin for a weekend. As I had been doing some plumbing under the crawl space and up through the sub-flooring into the kitchen sink area floor, under the cabinet where we had some empty jars stored.
            It got late, and I had fired up the grill, had some cold brews, and got a buzz going, and forgot to close the crawl space door.
            As there was an opening about 5 or six inches from the bottom of the sub-flooring up through the insulation and around the newly installed kitchen sink drain, where the hot and cold pipes run also, I hadn’t sealed it all up yet, and decided to do it the next day.
            The wife had put meat and other scraps into the trash can under that cabinet, it was an invitation for mice, of which I kept poison readily available.

          • JC Teecher

            A few hours later, and a couple more cool ones, I was drowsily watching TV, and wifey was reading, across the living room. Suddenly she said, “I hear a mouse in the trash under the sink”.
            I said, “good, I have some dessert waiting for it”.
            Then I heard jars clanging together; I said, ” that ain’t no mouse, that is a darn wharf rat”. Soon as I heard it again, I pounced and just in time to see a possum drop his head back into the sub-flooring. Being a tad bit in a “non -thinking clearly” state. i grabbed the 22 cal pistol and waited patiently as the varmint raised up his head to crawl back up, and knowing I was a deadly shooter at 20 yards, I fired at his left eye. the bullet went a tad right and low, through the upper neck and then through the cold water pipe, Possum disappeared and all i could do was go to the electric breaker box and shut off the water pump to the geyser in the cabinet.
            wife was screaming, and cussing, “wtf” and I can’t remember who I was mre mad at, me, her, or the possum. I got the big beam light and went under the house to see if the possum had come down, but no possum or no blood trail, so I thought, Uh oh! Dead or worse wounded possum in the sub-flooring. I had visions of sawing openings in the sub-flooring to fish out a dead possum.

          • JC Teecher

            I ran back up, and with light in hand was under the soaked area under the sink peering into that small hole for any sign of the varmint, and there it was, I barely could see the tip of a greasy looking tail. After pounding on the floor, I saw no movement, but was not about to try to reach it with my bare hand as he might be doing the ole, playing possum trick, and they have four rows of razor sharp teeth covered in undiscovered bacteria.
            After fashioning a clothes hanger into a long hook, I went to work trying to fish the stinking thing out. the worst part was the wife cussing me, as she was holding the flashlight, and me lying on the soaked floor.
            Finally, I got enough of the varmint pulled up through the hole to yank it through without fully eviscerating the darn thing. The wife was still making some rude remarks and questioning my every move. I was happy, wet, and straight, so I popped the top of another one to celebrate after washing up.
            As I went outside to have a smoke and checkout the dead intruder, and keep the dog off it, I saw it’s protrusion proof.
            I called the wife out, and said, “now don’t ever call me a liar again, when you hear me speak of a two p*ck**rd possum”.
            I kept hearing her, with flashlight in hand as I went back in the house, it’s real, I can’t believe it, it’s real, it’s really real”.

          I do not think that you would want to approach a hardcore liberal, due to the fact that large minority of them are quite contumelious.

          Liberals in wealthy parts of the Midwest seem much more tolerant of my libertarian views, and my friends’ conservative views. The East Coast? I will let any rational person answer that.

          • SoCalBeachDude

            So you don’t even begin to comprehend the meaning of the word LIBERAL despite me giving you the complete definition with examples and yet go off on another inane and bogus rang? Really? Seriously?

    • it’s because you prefer slavery and worshipping the state as God to independence.

      • ramrodd

        so this is where you comment..
        Dont get me started on these guys, yes Reagan too!!

      • SoCalBeachDude

        The government of the USA is the LARGEST BUSINESS N THE WORLD and has nothing to do with “god” at all. What on earth are you talking about regarding “independence?” Independence from what? The world is a GLOBALLY INTERCONNECTED WORLD and is becoming increasingly more so with the USA at the center of the global interconnections among the world’s 7.5+ billion people. Do you not comprehend that?

        • ramrodd

          mostly true BUT…..

          so why not inform the people that there are no borders, no longer a USA? why are they still flying the US flag on this 4th of July??

          • SoCalBeachDude

            There are very clear BORDERS in the USA and the border laws are being enforced more than ever these days which is one good thing Donnie has worked on since he became President. The USA has always encouraged IMMIGRATION as long as it fits within the LEGAL GUIDELINES established for immigration into the USA. Nearly all Americans come from immigrant families who came into the country from the 1700s up to present.

          • ramrodd

            I have friends who lived on that border all their lives…and your assertion is not true..

            as a lefty, what youre doing is
            comparing immigration from the 1700s to border jumpers of today…..

            Trump seems to be your answer? which tells me that youre either clueless or a liar?

            Before an illegal alien receives his/her first paycheck or cash payment, they have committed some 26 Federal, State and Local laws.

            1. They conspire to cross the border illegally. (1 count)
            2. They hire a coyote or are provided passage by a Drug Cartel inexchange for guided passage into the USA. (1 count)

            At a minimum this list shows that they commit at least 28 crimes of identity theft, conspiracy, obtaining false documents making false statements, fraud, violation of Federal and State and Local laws, etc.

            AND THE LIST GOES ON.

            The above list correctly demonstrates that they are not simply in violation of our laws just for crossing the Border, they are in violation for multiple
            misdemeanor and criminal acts in just a very short period of time and they
            continue to compound their violations via the passage of time, via falsification
            of documents, false statements, perjury and the list goes
            on.

            There are around a maximum of 25 million illegal aliens now in the USA out of the 324 million or so people in America and the federal government is now doing whatever it can to effectively address that issue. Large numbers of those folks are now in the process of self-deporting.

    Many like you have come and gone thinking only if I can get elected to Congress I can go to DC and change the system. Remember 1952, 1966, 1980, 1994, 2002, 2010, 2014. The GOP does little, always on the defensive, cowers in fear and caves in when the opposition fires off their howitzers. The Republican establishment is ultra liberal and many well meaning conservatives who make it to Congress disappear in the ether of establishment bipartisanship. Politicians from the past have warned us: Adams said Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other. Lincoln, addressing the Springfield Lyceum in 1838 said If destruction be our lot we must ourselves be its author and finisher. The best came from the Bible when Jesus tempted for the third time by Satan was shown all the kingdoms of the world and offered them if he bowed down and worshipped the devil. he refused but it goes to show you who is running the governments of the world both then and now. When Jesus returns He will crush the head of the serpent and give us true peace and prosperity. No politician from Idaho can do it. Call on the name of the Lord and you shall be saved.

    • GSOB

      This part is fulfilled:
      “When Jesus returns He will crush the head of the serpent and give us true peace and prosperity.”

            Jesus even said in your own bible that he was not god. Not to mention if he was god why the dilemma in the garden before his execution and whom did he ask the question, “father why have you forsaken me?” to himself? Seems a bit redundant don’t you think. And what was jesus doing up until age 29? If he was god he could have written the bible himself and left it for people. Not have people write it thousands of years after the fact after the living were long dead and could not dispute what was written.

No country in the world has MURDERED MORE PEOPLE THAN THE USA over the past 241 years and it’s time for that kind of outrageous and disgusting behavior to end.

            We do not have “open borders” at all in the USA and the illegal immigration issue is being dealt with at all deliberate speed.

            None of that has anything whatsoever to do with religious matters, and you appear to be extremely confused. Pitiful.

            I think you’ve forgotten about Stalin, Hitler, Lenin, Trotsky, Ceaușescu, Pol
            pot, and countless others throughout history whose countries were at one time “civilized.” Real mass shootings/murders have always been committed COMMUNIST governments

            The general rule is that most Jewish folks are not atheists at all but rather belief in the Torah. Why do you make bizarre assumptions about people who you don’t even know. As to the US it is by far the MOST MURDEROUS COUNTRY in the entire history of the world having killed far more than those other countries combined.

          • ramrodd

            you were arguing the atheist position but now youre a jew? make up your mind…

          • SoCalBeachDude

            Huh? What “atheist position” are you talking about? Take your RELIGIOUS RUBBISH out to the garbage bin and start dealing with reality. The US has murdered far more than 100 million people over the past 24 years including around 50 million alone in World War II in Europe.

          • SoCalBeachDude

            Jesus of Nazareth was the world’s first true SOCIALIST and communism is just an evolution of socialism.

          • ramrodd

            If all you know about Jesus is what you’ve heard, I can understand why you might think he was a socialist. After all, He healed the sick and fed the hungry and commanded His followers to do likewise, right?
            That’s what socialists do, isn’t it?
            Actually, no.
            Historically socialists ration government-run health care services and starve their people.
            Jesus wasn’t a socialist, but, interestingly, he was betrayed by one.
            “Saying, These last have wrought but one hour, and thou hast made them equal unto us, which have borne the burden and heat of the day.
            “But he answered one of them, and said, Friend, I do thee no wrong: didst
            not thou agree with me for a penny?
            “Take that thine is, and go thy way: I will give unto this last, even as unto thee.

            “Is it not lawful for me to do what I will with mine own? Is thine eye evil, because I am good?
            “So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few
            chosen.”
            This is such an astonishing repudiation of the entitlement mentality that leads to socialism as well as a bold defense of private property, no wonder it is always conveniently ignored by the left.

            Read the bible for yourself. The answers you presume to seek are there.

            James gives this same advice to Christians, because they often have the same need.

            “When all kinds of trials and temptations crowd into your lives my brothers, don’t resent them as intruders, but welcome them as friends!

            Realise that they come to test your faith and to produce in you the quality of endurance.

            But let the process go on until that endurance is fully developed
            and you will find you have become men of mature character problem he has only to ask God

            And if, in the process, any of you does not know how to meet any particular problem he has only to ask God, who gives generously to

            all men

            without making them feel foolish or guilty and he may be quite sure that the necessary wisdom will be given him.
            But he must ask in sincere faith without secret doubts as to whether he really wants God’s help or not.

          You know as well as I do that if he did get into congress it would not change one thing at all. He wants to end the fed but he does not realize that the fed is what makes this entire world go round. Without it most can say goodbye to their cushy lifestyles and all the entertainment they love so much. America is the land of debt slaves and without the slaves in other countries to make the products we buy we would be just like those in the third world we close our eyes and pretend do not exists.

          People say they want to change the system, but then give no examples of actually changing the system. What they really want is to keep the system in place that they used to know and our comfortable with and that gave them a comfortable life. So what they really are running for is to keep things the way they were even though they know that it is not possible and is the reason we are in the mess we are in right now.

      The US totally abolished the brief 60 year failed “gold standard” entirely back in 1933 as to all domestic purposes. It was only in place from 1873 until 1933 at which time it was thrown into the rubbish bin in the US and the private ownership of any gold bullion was made illegal. Ownership of gold jewelry and numismatic coins was never prohibited. Gold has no financial relevance whatsoever and never will ever again.

            All of California up until California (Alta California) was seized from Mexico by the United States around 1847 was all PART OF MEXICO and the land here was pretty much divided up into Spanish and then Mexican land grants for huge ranchos.

            California: From Spanish Land Grants To Today’s Paradise…

            Only about 170 years ago nearly all of California was comprised of Spanish and Mexican Land Grants which divided the State up into huge sprawling ranchos where cattle and sheep were raised and California as we know it today was called “Alta California” governed by Mexico.

            The Spanish and later Mexican governments encouraged settlement of Alta California (now known as California) by giving prominent men large land grants called ranchos, usually two or more square leagues. Land-grant titles (concessions) were government-issued, permanent, unencumbered property-ownership rights to land called ranchos.

            Devoted to raising cattle and sheep, the owners of the ranchos attempted to pattern themselves after the landed gentry of Spain. Their workers included Californian Native Americans who had learned to speak Spanish, many of them former Mission residents.

            Spain made about 30 grants between 1784 and 1821, and Mexico granted about 270 more between 1833 and 1846. The ranchos established land-use patterns and place names that are still in use in California today. Rancho boundaries became the basis for California’s land survey system, and can still be found on modern maps and land titles.

            Ranchos were partially based on geography, such as access to river water. Land development in the 20th and 21st century often follow the boundaries of the ranchos, and often retain the original name. For example, “Rancho San Diego,” an unincorporated ‘rural-burb’ east of San Diego, or “Rancho Bernardo”, a masterplan suburb in the city of San Diego.

            During Spanish rule (1769–1821), the ranchos were concessions from the Spanish crown, permitting settlement and granting grazing rights on specific tracts of land, while the crown retained the title. The ranchos, that is, the settlement by individuals of tracts of land outside presidio, mission, and pueblo boundaries, began in 1784, when Juan José Domínguez got permission from Spanish Governor Pedro Fages to put his cattle on the 48,000-acre (190 km2) Rancho San Pedro. The land concessions were usually measured in leagues. A league of land would encompass a square that is one Spanish league on each side – approximately 4,428 acres (1,792 ha). The Spanish and Mexican governments made a large number of grants from 1785 to 1846.

            It was not until the Mexican era (1821–1846) that the titles to the plots of land were granted to individuals. In 1821, Mexico achieved its independence from Spain, and California came under control of the Mexican government. The 1824 Mexican Colony Law established rules for petitioning for land grants in California; and by 1828, the rules for establishing land grants were codified in the Mexican Reglamento (Regulation). The Acts sought to break the land monopoly of the missions and also paved the way for luring additional settlers to California by making land grants easier to obtain. The Mexican Governors of Alta California gained the power to grant state lands, and many of the Spanish concessions were subsequently patented under Mexican law—frequently to local “friends” of the governor.

            The United States (US) declared war against Mexico on May 13, 1846. Action in California began with the Bear Flag Revolt on June 15, 1846. On July 7, 1846, US forces took possession of Monterey, the capital of California, and terminated the authority and jurisdiction of Mexican officials that day. Armed resistance ended in California with the Treaty of Cahuenga signed on January 13, 1847. The Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, ending the war, was signed February 2, 1848 and California became a Territory of the United States. Between 1847 and 1849, California was run by the U.S. military. A constitutional convention met in Monterey in September 1849, and set up a state government. It operated for 10 months before California was admitted to the Union as the 31st State by the United States Congress, as part of the Compromise of 1850, enacted on September 9, 1850.

    Before you can change things you have to know how they currently function. Unfortunately they fail to function in a lot of cases and these dinosaurs are very entrenched in the “system” of law we currently have.
    Socialism is a prime example of what I am talking about and it is even entrenched with the likes of Bernie Sanders.
    Any agency with huge amounts of regulations telling how they are to function should go down. The EPA has over ten semi-truck loads of law and regulation. As you have clearly stated the IRS is in a similar position.
    So how do we make these agencies work?
    How do we make them function properly?
    It is impossible in their current state for this to happen.
    Future shock is one reason both agencies need serious repair.
    In the 30s, I maintain the greatest financial disaster for the average person in the trades was the advent of the assembly line. Suddenly sophisticated engineering of automobiles became cheap enough for average people to afford them. The assembly line needed no such sophisticated training to operate and many appliances suddenly became available.
    In my own personal trade the advent of the linotype caused a huge loss of employment as people went from hand setting type to a far superior method. So a composing room went from 500 to 200 employees.
    It was the first of a long line of change that eventually brought employment way down.
    In the 70s we went from linotypes to cold type production with photographic materials and paste wax.
    In the 90s, the windows PC became far cheaper.
    We went from programs costing a million dollars a program to the latest versions of Quark Express, Page Maker, and finally Indesign. Indesign in the 90s was a 400 dollar program and did what the more sophisticated printing programs once did costing far more to own.
    In the 30s, the solution was to make any work over 40 hours overtime. Thus supporting a larger workforce that was unemployed. When this occurred the average worker worked 6 days a week not five.
    With the advent of benefits packages for full time workers this solution fell apart and it was cheaper to keep workers working overtime than to hire new workers. Part time workers became popular among companies. These people did not get the full benefit package.
    When I left the workforce and retired in 2007 there were less than 30 journeyman printers left from an original 225.
    What I am describing has happened in many skilled labor positions and a whole lot of it has been sub-contracted to poor nations with less than 10% of the wages they might make here.
    Thank-you Internet for making this all possible(not).
    The key is cost of delivering said goods to this country from abroad.
    It is cheaper with an automated factory to build the products here. Not so in 1970.
    SO we come full circle. But the problem is future shock has hit the entire world. What could be done originally in 6 day work weeks can now be done in less than 30 hours. And by far less people.
    So we currently have a huge problem with people on social services like welfare and a huge unemployed population of unskilled and skilled workers.
    And that is the trouble with income tax. It is supporting government with less than 1/3rd the population compared with a much higher figure right after world war II.
    I would change it to a fair tax based on what people buy instead of what they earn. The reason being that would increase revenues for the existing government and lay off the IRS.
    The EPA as it stands right now is a very powerful economic force with a large number of contradictory laws. The courts should dismantle it.
    In its place we need to keep the law simple. That means far fewer laws and putting the laws so that everyone can understand them and obey them.
    We need to dismantle the power structures of both agencies as they currently are confusiing and discriminatory. That means they are unconstitutional and only a very biased towards money court system would even consider them legal.
    Our system of law seriously needs alteration to one that does not use moneyed interests as a basis to support the system.
    It is really sad as it exists right now.
    IF you require workman’s comp a lawyer is necessary to get it.
    That lawyer will charge 1/3 of what workman’s comp owes you after a wait of several months. Which means a simple walk through the court system costs the poor wage earner approximately 2,000. The lawyer sends his assistant to clear it through the courts. This is plain wrong.
    Same goes for a title search on a property you are buying. Then the bank needs an insurance policy to make sure the lawyer’s clerk searched the records properly. To the tune of $700 or more.
    IF you can change this bunch of non-working thieves in the Congress lots of luck to you. But I suggest it is too late.
    But the benefit package for a young lawyer such as yourself is well worth the effort. Expecially after a certain amount of time you get your salary with the congress for life.

It is evident that you have spiritual discernment and no one is clouding your eyes to the truth.

    “EVERYTHING about a true Christian is marvelous.
    He is a marvel to himself and a marvel to all who are round about him.

    Mere professors — manmade Christians — people who have made themselves Christians by their own free will apart from the Spirit of God, have nothing marvelous about them.
    You can make professors of that sort by the score and you can see them dissolve by the score, for what man made, man can unmake and what is merely natural has its season, like the leaves on the trees; and, by-and-by, it withers away because its time to fade has come.

    But a true Christian is a God-made man, a twice-born man; and he is a partaker of the divine nature.”

    Sin is more than an act or a series of acts; it is a man’s make-up.
    It has blinded the understanding, corrupted the heart, and alienated the mind from God.
    And the will has not escaped.
    The will is under the dominion of sin and Satan.

    Therefore, the will is not free.
    In short, the affections love as they do and the will chooses as it does because of the state of the heart and because the heart is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked.

            See this page in: Bulgarian, Dutch Baby. Illustration copyrighted. God speaks very clearly in the Bible on the value of unborn children. God’s Word says that He personally made each one of us, and has a plan
            for each life:

            Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart. —Jeremiah 1:5

            For You created my inmost being; You knit me together in my mother’s womb Your eyes saw my unformed body.
            All the days ordained for me were written in Your book before one of them came to be. —Psalm 139:13, 16

          • SoCalBeachDude

            All that matters is what the LAWS OF THE USA AND THE SUPREME COURT SAY as we are a country of LAWS in the USA and religious views on that topic are TOTALLY IRRELEVANT to the issue.

          • ramrodd

            thats why the USA has been destroyed – fools who think like you!!

            If you are one that believes the Supreme Court is the final arbiter of what is lawful and constitutional, then you have believed a lie and a myth that
            Jefferson warned about. The States still retain their rights to this day to defy
            the federal judiciary, which has become an oligarcy. We just need strong
            statesmen as governors and legislatures to make that stand!

            In writing to William Jarvis, Jefferson said,
            “You seem . . . to consider the judges as the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions; a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one which would place us under the
            despotism of an oligarchy.”

            The germ of dissolution of our federal government is in the constitution of the federal Judiciary; an irresponsible body (for
            impeachment is scarcely a scare-crow) working like gravity by night and by day,
            gaining a little today and a little tomorrow, and advancing its noiseless step like a thief, over the field of jurisdiction, until all shall be usurped.”

          • SoCalBeachDude

            You obviously have zero comprehension as to the LAWS of the USA – including the US Constitution – and have no respect for the Supreme Court of the USA. It is your religious views that have NO RELEVANCE WHATSOEVER to the issue and which are in no way part of the law of the USA.

            Willing Demons

            What is the United States? It is not a republic as it follows no semblence of its Constitution, the very foundation of its power, of its authority. It is asystem of terror, with the power to destroy lives with contrived charges; offhandedly encumbering citizens with debt and criminal charges on a whim. This is the very system our forefather’s fled and risked everything to resist. In effect, they have taken our citizenship, robbed us of our birthright.

            Freedom? They watch us as if we are all suspects. Cameras are everywhere; software tracks us; our new vehicles and cell phones will tell
            them where we are at any given moment. Our writings are recorded and available as evidence against us though no charges have been filed. The result of these intrusions into our lives will become the evidence upon which they will seek a warrant. That cannot be more backward from the intent of the Constitution.

            Enemies of the people are encouraged to roam free among us, often at the informal invitation of the government. Our borders are not secure, there is no will to discriminate between honest immigrants seeking a better life and those intent on victimizing legal and legitimate citizens of the United States.

            Our economy, the very power that denies enemies to risk war on these shores, is no better than it was in 2009. Every figure compiled by the government is a ruse, it is fraud to mollify the people. Politicians lie and
            contrive to further the fraud to secure their own power with no regard for the
            dangerous waters they have navigated at our expense.

            The tax-paying citizens of this nation intent on doing right and living within the laws have been targeted by the very government they support. They have become the villains while true enemies have been coddled and
            encouraged. Every aspect of their lives have come under attack; their budgets,
            their religions, their privacy, their pastimes and their associations. Anything that will undermine the society of the typical American has become taboo, while all manner of deviance and decadence has been promoted;
            cheered on to success.

            The Real Unemployment Number: 102 Million Working Age Americans Do Not Have
            A Job..

            Well, the truth is that the official “unemployment rate” that the
            mainstream media endlessly hypes is so manipulated that it has essentially lost
            all meaning at this point.

            In other words, when you round up to the nearest million you get a grand
            total of 102 million Americans that do not have a job right now.

            Most people have no idea that the “official numbers” that we get from the
            government are highly speculative, and there is always a temptation to make
            things look better than they actually are.

            But once again, it is a battle of perception vs. reality. Their
            televisions are endlessly feeding them the message that everything is just fine,
            and most Americans seem to be buying it, at least for now…

          • SoCalBeachDude

            So what?

            As to unemployment the BLS (Bureau of Labor Statistics) has SIX METRICS FOR UNEMPLOYMENT WHICH THEY ALWAYS REPORT and those are U1, U2, U3, U4, U5, and U6. U6 most comprehensively measures unemployment and hows it presently at 10% and the U6 number was the most widely reported metric up through the Reagan years.

            These days the White House and the press almost always only report the U3 metric which is about half that at around 5%. You can see the OFFICIAL US GOVERNMENT BLS NUMBERS based on each of those unemployment metrics on a monthly basis at:

            http://www.bls.gov/news.release/empsit.t15.htm

            There are other alternative metrics to calculate unemployment and the most prominent of those is the SGS metric used by ShadowStats which pegs current unemployment at around 23.4% and rising:

            http://www.shadowstats.com/charts/employment

            There is no way to factually determine unemployment and underemployment with complete accuracy, obviously, as all reports are based on SAMPLING SURVEYS and EXTRAPOLATIONS from those surveys.

            Actual unemployment in the US is currently as high as 32% based on more than 95 million people eligible for the work force currently not working and about 8 million additional people not working but actively seeking jobs which is what the U-3 metric measures.

            you continue to show youre marxist colors….

          • SoCalBeachDude

            I frankly couldn’t care less about so-called “workers” – which are the very foundation of the doctrine of Marxism – but you are doing nothing other than ranting on and on and on about WORKERS which is what Marxism is all about. Hellllllloooooo?

          • ramrodd

            marxists now even control all wording…youre a Global marxists – own that

            What on earth does “God” have to do with trade deals among countries?

          • ramrodd

            read scripture for that answer but as an atheist or whatever you are – i would be wasting my time…

          • SoCalBeachDude

            Obviously, “god” has absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with current global trade deals. Helllllllllloooooo?

            he has something to do with EVERYTHING

          • SoCalBeachDude

            Last I checked nearly every Congressman has an 80% to 90% or higher approval rating from their OWN CONSTITUENTS. The USA is a very confused and divided country and does not come together well at all from a national standpoint of common interests these days.

            None of that drivel says a single word about ABORTIONS at all, does it?

          • ramrodd

            you continue to mock the New Testament which proves youre an atheist/God hater… you attack scripture because it proves God forms babies in the womb..it doesnt not fit your agenda of murder..

          • SoCalBeachDude

            Where else do you think any “babies” come from but a woman’s womb? Hellloo? Did it really take the “bible” to inform you as to that scientific fact? Really? Seriously?

          • ramrodd

            God speaks very clearly in the Bible on the value of unborn children. God’s Word says that He personally made each one of us, and has a plan for each life:

            Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart.

            —Jeremiah 1:5

            Even before I was born, God had chosen me to be His.

            —Galatians 1:15

          • SoCalBeachDude

            So what? That has nothing at all to do with aborting fetuses.

          • ramrodd

            youre in denial

          • SoCalBeachDude

            Hardly, but YOU sure are in denial of even the most basic realities.

          • SoCalBeachDude

            Aborting a fetus is not “murder” at all. I would suggest you learn about the laws in the USA at your earliest convenience.

          • ramrodd

            abortion is murder no mater what any politician or court rules…
            they will answer for murder when they meet the God they dont believe in….

            This ignorant accusation towards God, is from someone who does not understand the nature and sovereignty of God, and his hatred towards sin.

            If you understood those things, you would be able to logically address the blasphemous, accusation towards the creator God.

            You Hitlery worshippers are all the same.

            Sooooooooo, if the “fetus” has a heartbeat, then what is it????? You would say it is not human……and your attitude is one reason judgement is upon this nation, and this attitude justifies the murder of 55+ million human lives have been murdered since 1973.

            You should be ashamed of yourself, repeating the murderous mantra given to you by the pied Piper of politically correct propaganda, like the good little basement dwelling sheeple that you are.

          • SoCalBeachDude

            What I stated is fully true and correct. The Supreme Court has clearly ruled that a fetus is NOT A PERSON at all and up to a certain point in a pregnancy it can be fully legally aborted and disposed of accordingly. That is not “murder” in any sense whatsoever.

          • SoCalBeachDude

            Where do you come up with such utter nonsense. Religion has NOTHING AT ALL to do with the issue of pregnancies.

          • SoCalBeachDude

            As I said, religion has NOTHING TO DO with the issue of pregnancies and/or their early termination. Pregnancy has always been classified as a MEDICAL CONDITION and terminating or continuing that condidtio0n is a MEDICAL DECISION which should be the sole responsibility of the woman who finds herself in that condition.

    HISTORY OF FEDERAL TAXES IN USA

    Prior to federal income taxes in 1916, the US federal government largely funded itself through 1) TARIFFS, and 2) LIQUOR TAXES.

    Should we go back to that system and raise $4 trillion a year through the use of tariffs and liquor taxes?

    The roots of IRS go back to the Civil War when President Lincoln and Congress, in 1862, created the position of commissioner of Internal Revenue and enacted an income tax to pay war expenses. The income tax was repealed 10 years later. Congress revived the income tax in 1894, but the Supreme Court ruled it unconstitutional the following year.

    In 1913, Wyoming ratified the 16th Amendment, providing the three-quarter majority of states necessary to amend the Constitution. The 16th Amendment gave Congress the authority to enact an income tax. That same year, the first Form 1040 appeared after Congress levied a 1 percent tax on net personal incomes above $3,000 with a 6 percent surtax on incomes of more than $500,000.

    In 1918, during World War I, the top rate of the income tax rose to 77 percent to help finance the war effort. It dropped sharply in the post-war years, down to 24 percent in 1929, and rose again during the Depression. During World War II, Congress introduced payroll withholding and quarterly tax payments.

    The IRS as it presently exists was founded on July 9, 1953.

    Isn’t it really extremely easy to cut federal spending by at least $1 trillion a year?

    1) Cut Social Security payments by 20% ($266 billion saved)

    2) Cut allowable Medicare charges by 50% ($425 billion saved)

    3) Eliminate food stamps entirely ($80 billion saved)

    4) Cut military expenditures by 30% ($240 billion saved)

    5) Increase Congressional salaries by 100% for mission accomplished!!!

  • SoCalBeachDude
  • SoCalBeachDude

    The issue with the federal government budget and debt are as obvious and as straightforward as could possibly be and that has been the case for the past 35 years as the federal debt has exploded out of control ever since the Reagan years starting in 1981.

    The federal government is spending VASTLY BEYOND ITS MEANS, which in crystal clear terms means that it is SPENDING FAR ABOVE TAX REVENUES which results in an ANNUAL DEFICIT WHICH INCREASES THE FEDERAL DEBT. The total aggregate federal debt has increased from a “mere” $1 trillion in 1981 to currently around $20 trillion as a result of that deficit spending which now exceeds $1 trillion a year. Last year, in fiscal 2016, the federal debt increased by $1.4 trillion.

    The ONLY SOLUTIONS TO THAT ISSUE are:

    1) Cutting federal government expenditures dramatically

    2) Increasing federal taxes dramatically

    3) A blend of approaches 1 and 2

    There simply are NO OTHER SOLUTIONS AT ALL. It is impossible to “grow our way out” of this massive problem. In any way decreasing federal taxes would make that problem dramatically worse.

    I grilled Sunday, so I am fixing a stir fry with fresh squash, zuchinni, green peppers, onions celery, and some broccoli and cauliflower tips w/ sweet and sour sauce, over a bed of rice noodles.

    Skipping the Fireworks displays this year as well, but can’t get away from the big bam booms. These mtn people get liquored up and bring out the big guns. One party about a mile away usually has a couple clothes dryer bombs loaded and exploded. those babies rock the earth for thousands of yards, and I might add, are highly illegal, but these people don’t really care about legal and illegal on their hundreds of acres.

    The Federal Reserve only owns less than 14% of the total $20 trillion in US Treasuries outstanding for a total of around $2.5 trillion and is now in the process of reducing those holdings by about 50% between now and the end of 2018 down to only around $1.2 trillion.

    The Federal Reserve did NOT RUN UP A SINGLE PENNY OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT DEBT but rather 100% of it was run up by CONGRESS AND THE WHITE HOUSE who appropriate and sign the spending bills into law and it is THEIR PROFLIGACY WHICH HAS CAUSED 100% OF THE GOVERNMENT DEBT WHICH IS OWNED BY ITS CITIZENS WHICH THEY REPRESENT.

    Only a small portion (14%) of the US government debt is owned to the Federal Reserve amounting to about 14% and about to go to around 7% is owed to the Federal Reserve and THAT IS INTEREST FREE TO THE US TREASURY as the Federal Reserve rebates more than 94% of its annual profits to the US Treasury and has done so for its entire 103+ years of existence.

    The largest portion of the US government debt is OWED TO THE US GOVERNMENT ITSELF and specifically its various agencies with the largest owners being the Medicare and Social Security Trust funds to the tune of around $6 trillion.

    There are MILLIONS OF OWNERS OF THE US GOVERNMENT DEBT OF $20 TRILLION WHO HOLD THAT DEBT AS ASSETS and attempting to wipe out that debt by not repaying its owners would result in the DESTRUCTION OF $20 TRILLION OF ASSETS INCLUDING THE ENTIRE MEDICARE AND SOCIAL SECURITY TRUST FUNDS. Not to mention banks, insurance companies, pension funds, money market funds, foreign holdings, and a vast array of other holders including millions of individuals in the USA and abroad.

    Any such action would render the credit of the USA TOTALLY DESTROYED and make it unable to borrow at all in the credit markets as it would have defaulted on its debt and created the BIGGEST DEFAULT CATASTROPHE EVER SEEN IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD.

        You need to study up more on founders documents, state Constitutions and even several presidents call to fast and pray.

    Religion has no place whatsoever in politics. Religion and politics are both highly contentious topics and do not mix. Bring up religion in the context of politics only creates more dissension and chaos and is never a fruitful thing to engage in. One of reason that we have to many Jewish folks in politics in America today (beyond the fact they are the brightest folks in America) is the fact that they know how to KEEP RELIGION OUT OF POLITICS and stick to the issues which is what is good for the country and what is good for America with positive constructive views on those matters.

    The USA should strongly consider apologizing to the UK for its actions 241 years ago and start working with the UK – along with Goldman Sachs – on a possible merger with the USA to join the countries together once again, especially now that the UK will soon be stranded outside the EU without any friends or possibilities of trade without a very high price admission ticket charged by the EU. The USA would gain a lovely Queen and monarchy and become much more like Canada and the UK would be able to gain competitive access to markets which would be a WIN-WIN for both countries.

    So what are you going to do with the 20 Trillion dollar working debt. the 200 trillion dollar entitlement program debt and the 100 trillion dollar domestic Derivatives market debt? You get rid of the FED. and go back to real money, the current fiat dollar backed by worthless bonds will totally collapse. How will you deal with exiting the global economic system where they control all the 10 economic regions of the planet with the G-10 meeting at the BIS and giving marching orders to all the worlds central banks. Plus with the collapse of the dollar, the IMF, WB and the BIS will name a new currency or basket of currencies as the new world benchmark currency and that alone will have devastating effects on our economy. Even the current 1.3 % growth is totally fueled by debt spending. You get rid of that and let interest rates float, all the banks will fail and there will be massive chaos. Then we start all over with massive debt spending to save people from starving? And do you really think these people will just let you walk in and do this? This is controlled outside the political system. Plus you would need a intelligent and educated populace to vote for all of this. They don’t exist especially in the 35 and group. The n you add all the other world central banks will be at economic war with you. We are truly in a “catch 22.” The problem is not the deep state, the problem is us. We start over the same stupid sheeple will elect the same stupid politicians to get what they want for nothing. The only answer is a change in the hearts and minds of people and the only hope is the Gospel. Ans what is sad that really was not part of the solution here. Very sad.

    • SoCalBeachDude

      There is no “derivatives market debt” at all. As to the federal government debt of $20 trillion that is a relatively small part of the overall $67 trillion in outstanding debt in the USA, and obviously that debt needs to be reduced quite substantially across all sectors of the US economy.

      The Federal Reserve has NOTHING WHATSOEVER to do with running up any of that debt in the USA and only owns about $2.5 trillion of the US government debt in the form of US Treasuries and now is in the process of reducing those holdings by around 50% between now and the end of 2018.

      There is no such thing as “real money” other than the US DOLLAR WHICH IS THE ULTIMATE REAL MONEY and is the money and currency used in 83% of all global transactions and is the PERFECT REAL MONEY as it is now nearly completely ELECTRONIC MONEY which can be transmitted instantly.

      The BIS has been making it clear for a number of years that GLOBAL DEBT NEEDS TO FALL and that INTEREST RATES NEED TO RISE and all central banks are now moving in that sensible direction to rein in the out of control global debt issue which has now reached more than $217 trillion.

      The US dollar is doing extremely well and is at over 96 on the DXY and has SOARED IN PURCHASING POWER against nearly all of the world’s commodities over the past 6 years.

    • JC Teecher

      I agree, in part because this gov is controlled by more than just the deep state and pizza gate pedofiles.

      there is a whole evil underground, shadow gov of nazi extremists living in the underworld that calls the shots from their underground cities and lairs. They are supported by all the thievery from decades past and present.
      No one but God can touch them, and He will use them for His purposes, and then they are blotted out of existence along with their king….lucy-fer.

      However; DB, we as Christians have to have a voice in the political realm or they will squelch us out of existence.

      hence the words….”shortened the days, lest no flesh would be saved”. this is not talking about the killing of the flesh as the evil locust/underground army is prohibited, by God, from killing his elect children. This is referring to something called “transhumanism”, and DNA manipulation through various methods and through various entities.

      “Just like in the days of Noah”, the Nephiliam/Fallen Angels, was introducing seed into flesh woman, to hybridize all mankind, so that the true DNA from GOD would be polluted. They are coming back one day soon, but for the past 2000 years or more their offspring/disembodied souls of the giants/hybrids/gebborh, have been using mankind for experimental genetic manipulations and increasing the populations with their own created hybrids.
      They walk among us and some do not even know they have been hybridized. They may be found innocent at some point by the one and only Judge of the Heavens, but until then they are wreaking havoc among us.
      It don’t get better for civilizations, but true Christians with the covering of the blood of Christ, have an impenetrable protective barrier, that no man/hybrid/ or alien entity can penetrate unless….we allow it.
      Therefore we stand united, until it all comes to the very last five months of this age, and then…granny grab yer youngins’ and head for the hills for a while, cause it is gonna get ugly.

      • Daniel H Benson

        I’m not saying we don’t have a voice, I’m not promoting disengagement. What I’m against is as a Christian promoting the same old answers given for decades to conservative Republicans. It’s meaningless to say I stand for this in DC with some kind of hope that things will change (drain the swamp). But to tell the truth will not get you elected. So you play the game of speaking to the crowd knowing full well what you are saying will not happen and if it did the outcome will be horrific. As the FED’s own chief macroeconomics expert said in a private meeting I was at in the St. Louis Fed about all this QE and zero interest rates, “I have very little confidence this will end well.” Tell them we are in a fight, this may not end well but we will do this together stay the course no matter who wins. We are not here to save this country but glorify God. Yes we need to stick together and fight this fight, the war has just begun in the physical realm.

        • SoCalBeachDude

          100% of the Federal Reserve QE funds always remained fully inside the Federal Reserve and had nothing whatsoever to do with any economic stimulus and were used to purchase EXISTING SECURITIES from member banks which increased the Federal Reserve balance sheet to $4.4 trillion from $800 billion and now the Federal Reserve in the process of reducing its balance sheet by 50% between now and the end of 2018.

          Federal Reserve Decides How to Do the Big Unwind

          • Daniel H Benson

            hey Dude,

            Because of my position, I just participated in a conference with
            the Fed’s Macro-economic expert at the St Louis Fed.

            With massive charts from the FED’s own data she showed that the QE is giving the banks top dollar for worthless mortgage back securities. The FED is holding the MBS not the QE; that went to the banks. They gave the banks money to keep them afloat to help level their balance sheets and equity to keep lending and investing. That is why the equity markets are at record highs and are disjointed from the real economy.
            Their expert openly stated their plan did not work, the M2 money supply has done nothing but drop since the end of 2010 and she had no confidence this will end well.
            I’m telling ya, raising the rates and dumping these worthless securities back on the market, is the FED positioning itself for another crash
            so they can take on more junk securities and lower rates again, to keep this going until a suitable “trigger event” occurs to blame the crash on. She also said one of the goals of the FED is to prevent another bank run as in 1923. So the Fed will not tell the people the sky is falling because people will panic. Their cover story is, we can’t predict what will happen. LOL. Back in 1979 I worked for a bank service company, at a long range planning meeting a very senior VP told us this fiat money system created just a few years ago, is part of a plan to get rid of all solid currency and paper notes and the entire global banking system will be digitally connected and all money will be digital. There will be no money and no checks. This would come when the debt would outstrip everyone’s
            ability to keep their heads above water and the system will crash. In America only 4-5 banks would survive.

          • PocoPete

            Will there be deflation or inflation when this happens?

          • Daniel H Benson

            Pete that is a great question!
            It depends. Consumable items like food, utilities, gasoline, my skyrocket due to lack of supply and high demand (have plenty-good barter items). Big ticket items like cars, appliances, furniture and homes may drop due to oversupply and lack of customers causing a glut on the market. Since there will be a bail in Like Greece and Cypress, cash will be in short supply, gold silver, bitcom my skyrocket as well. Bartering will be huge. Also massive street crime. In the end as in 1929, everything crashed in value, money property and wages. The new dollar after the crash will no longer be “the” world currency and will be devalued about 50% of what it is now. This is in line with the globalist plan to “level the playing field” by lowering our standard of living, disembowel the Constitution, and yes Dorthy we will not be in Kansas anymore when they come after your guns.

          • PocoPete

            Thanks for the insight. It makes sense to me.

            Yes, it’s at a bubble but it’s been there before. Nothing is for certain but we will have to wait and see. There could me more ups and downs before this is all over. in any case it will be interesting to watch this unfold.

          • SoCalBeachDude

            BitCON and the other “crytocoins” are nothing but WORTHLESS CON SCAMS and total fraud with no value on a fundamental basis whatsoever.

          • SoCalBeachDude

            What utter BS. Commodities are plunging and will continue to plunge including oil, grains, and other energy. We are in the midst of a MASSIVE GLOBAL OIL AND GRAIN GLUT WHICH IS WORSENING which means that prices will continue to fall. Good that involve value added due to LABOR COSTS such as cars, appliances, furniture, and homes, are NOT LIKELY TO FALL AS MUCH for the precise reason that they involve LABOR INPUT COSTS.

            There will be no “bail ins” at all, and Cyprus was a unique situation. Absurdly and preposterously overpriced commodity junk like BitCON, gold, silver, and the like will PLUMMET IN PRICE especially garbage like BitCON which is the epitome of a PONZI SCHEME SCAM and has NO VALUE WHATSOEVER on a fundamental basis.

            Nobody has any interest in “bartering” at all and your assertions regarding that are LAUGHABLY PREPOSTEROUS.

            The USA and the world RUN ON US DOLLARS which are used in 83% of all global transactions and NEARLY ALL US DOLLARS ARE ELECTRONIC and are the best form of currency ever created. As the price of other assets falls, the VALUE OF THE US DOLLAR WILL AXIOMATICALLY INCREASE VERY SUBSTANTIALLY as its purchasing power against those assets literally skyrockets as it has done against gold and silver over the past 6 years which have fallen 36% and 70% in price respectively since September 2011.

            As to the rest of your ABSURD AND BOGUS ASSERTIONS you have proven that you are CLUELESS MINDLESS DOLT and deserve no further response.

          • SoCalBeachDude

            Obviously none of those bogus assertions will happen at all. We are in a GLOBAL DEFLATIONARY SPIRAL that has been intensifying for the past 6 years.

          • SoCalBeachDude

            Why would you put up such a total pile of outright lies and totally preposterous and absurdly false assertions?

            The St. Louis Regional Federal Reserve Bank Branch clearly shows the M2 Money Supply up around 50% over the past 8 years as you can plainly see on their chart at:

            https://fred.stlouisfed.org/series/M2/

            There is no such thing as “QE to hold” and QE (Quantatative Easing) by the Federal Reserve consisted of the Federal Reserve creating $3.6 trillion of funds out of thin air and then using those funds to purchase EXISTING fully performing MBS instruments and US Treasuries from member banks in exchange for the proceeds from the QE funds being deposited into the RESERVES ACCOUNTS inside the Federal Reserve of those member banks which is precisely where all of the QE funds have always been with $1.3 trillion in primary reserves accounts and more than $2.5 trillion in the EXCESS RESERVES accounts of those member banks inside the Federal Reserve.

            Money Stock Measures – H.6

            http://www.federalreserve.gov/releases/h6/

            The MBS instruments and US Treasuries of $3.6 trillion are held as ASSETS by the Federal Reserve and the QE proceeds deposited in to the reserves accounts of the member banks are held as LIABILITIES of the Federal Reserve and exactly offset each other.

            That had nothing whatsoever to do with “keeping any banks afloat” at all and those QE transactions HAD NO IMPACT OR EFFECT WHATSOEVER ON THE BALANCE SHEETS OF THE BANKS INVOLVED. All QE involved was asset shifting of securities from banks for cash deposited into their reserves accounts inside the Federal Reserve both of which are just different categories in the banks ASSET LEDGERS.

            The Federal Reserve did not purchase any “junk securities” at all and ONLY PURCHASED TOP QUALITY FULLY PERFORMING SECURITIES from its member banks.

            All major banks in the USA fully passed FDIC and Federal Reserve and OCC stress testing and are earning RECORD HIGH PROFITS now and none are in any way impaired.

            The Federal Reserve is now moving to reduce its balance sheet by around 50% between now and the end of 2018 which will bring it down from around $4.4 trillion presently to around $2.2 trillion.

          • Daniel H Benson

            The M2 money “supply” is building because no one is buying or selling. What I was referring to is the actual circulation of all that M2 money; it’s going nowhere Dude;
            https://fred.stlouisfed.org/series/M2V
            clearly showing since 2010, there has been no recovery buying and selling has been on a steady slide.

          • Daniel H Benson

            Oh and in response to the fake news on bloomberg, that the FED decides about the big unwind? That’s not totally true. The G10 meets every 5-6 weeks at the BIS. They get their marching orders from the BIS and disseminate those orders to all the central Banks of the 10 economic regions on the planet including the US FED. You see economic world Govt. is already up and functioning. They control everything. The BIS and the IMF as well as Greenspan are all saying we are in danger of a market crash. But Yellen is saying no. Why is she lying? To prevent a panic on the dollar too soon. It’s all part of the plan.

          • SoCalBeachDude

            There is nothing in any way fake about that news report I cited on Bloomberg.

            The G10 has nothing whatsoever to do with the BIS (Bank for International Settlements) and most certainly does not meet within them at all.

            As to markets crashing, yes, markets will crash DUE TO PREPOSTEROUS OVERVALUATIONS but that has nothing whatsoever to do with central banks.

          • Daniel H Benson

            That is straight from the FED its self and works directly with the IMF and the WB. So where is all that money coming from to overvalue the equities markets?
            https://www.bis.org/list/g10publications/index.htm
            The Group of Ten is made up of eleven industrial countries (Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States) which consult and co-operate on economic, monetary and financial matters. The Ministers of Finance and central bank Governors of the Group of Ten meet as needed in connection with the meetings of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank.

          “We are not here to save this country but glorify God.” Why does god need glory and worship? Is it because he is 1. insecure and needs the validation 2. a narcissist 3. a representation of the human mind thus explaining the fact that he must be worshiped or 4. all of the above.

          Here are some things god did over the weekend:

          1. More than 100 people shot in Chicago over long Fourth of July weekend

          2. parents of a college student who killed herself after claiming she had been raped

          3. Why nurses need mandatory training in human trafficking

          4. Couple Charged With Child Abuse After 18-Month-Old Foster Toddler Is Found ‘Malnourished’

          5. 26-year-old man charged with raping family friends’ one-year-old baby

          and the list can go on and on and on and on and on.

          Justice where is it exactly? I know god was too busy getting trump elected but that was months ago. I guess he is too busy making sure americans can still buy their cheap imported goods made by the hands of slave labor. ‎Isaiah 45:7

            There are many among us of both hybrid types.
            If you have hybridization through blood lines extending all the way back to Cain/Kenites, then there is a sure fire way to tell.
            They have been cursed by God from the day Cain killed Abel, that the earth/ground/soil will not produce for them.

        • SoCalBeachDude

          The Federal Reserve and its people never made any such ABSURDLY INANE ASSERTIONS AS YOU BOGUSLY ASSERT at all, and you are a TOTAL LIAR. Not to mention that you assertion doesn’t make the slightest bit of sense and simply shows that you don’t even understand the terms you are using.

      • SoCalBeachDude

        Where do you come up with such delusional and incredibly stupid and bogus nonsense?

    • SoCalBeachDude

      What some folks seem to want to replace the very conservative Federal Reserve of the US which has kept the supply of US dollars as measured by M2 right around $13.5 trillion is that it be abolished and turned over to the grossly profligate US Treasury for the purpose of the US Treasury printing an incredible and endless FLOOD OF US DOLLARS to be dumped into the US economy and used to pay for the $20 trillion federal debt increasing at an amount in excess of $1 trillion every year due to reckless deficit federal government spending.

      It is very much possible – as clearly stated right in the Federal Reserve Act – to AMEND OR REPEAL the Federal Reserve.

      The specific section relating to that is the final Section 31 of the Federal Reserve Act which states:

      Section 31. Reservation of right to amend

      The right to amend, alter, or repeal this Act is hereby expressly reserved.

      The primary purpose of the Federal Reserve System is to handle interbank clearance of all banking transactions in the USA through its 12 Regional Banks each of which has a bank President. Those functions would have to be entirely replaced if the FRACT (Federal Reserve Act) were to be repealed.

      Moreover, there would be huge additional costs to the US Treasury to take over those functions and others from the Federal Reserve. Currently, the Federal Reserve rebates more than 94% of it annual profits to the US Treasury. That now results in nearly $100 billion being paid by the Federal Reserve to the US Treasury as a result of its balance sheet having been expanded over the past 10 years from around $800 billion to now around $4.4 trillion.

      The Federal Reserve balance sheet consists primarily of 1) US Treasuries of around $2.5 trillion, and MBS (Mortgage Back Securities) Instruments of around $1.8 trillion.

      The Federal Reserve is now in the process of reducing its balance sheet by around 50% between now and the end of 2018 down to around $2.2 trillion.

      The Federal Reserve does not set any interest rates that matter in the US economy and only sets 3 interest rates:

      1) Federal Discount Rate (the rate at which banks borrow directly from the Federal Reserve for overnight liquidity purposes on a fully collateralized basis).

      2) Federal Funds Rate (the interbank borrowing rate at which banks borrow from each other strictly for liquidity purposes for very short terms (typically overnight) on a fully collateralized basis.

      3) IOER [Interest On Excess Reserves] (the rate paid by the Federal Reserve to member banks on their more than $2.5 trillion in funds in their excess reserves accounts inside the Federal Reserve).

      Not that it matters the slightest bit of a hoot, however, as the FDR and FFR are practically NEVER USED THESE DAYS given the fact that member banks are overflowing with vast excess reserves and have NO NEED WHATSOEVER to borrow from each other or from the Federal Reserve for overnight liquidity purposes.

      The Federal Reserve’s 3 interest rates that they do set have nothing whatsoever to do with the interest paid on savings accounts at US banks. Regulation Q which was a part of the now abolished Glass-Steagall Act set a MAXIMUM INTEREST RATE PAID TO SAVERS of 5.50% at banks but never set a minimum interest rate on savings accounts.

      All interest rates that do matter to the US economy are keyed off the yields (interest rates) on US Treasuries set in the $13 trillion a year US Treasuries markets which are now extremely and abnormally low due to FREE MARKETS bidding up the prices of US Treasuries, and prices on US Treasuries are INVERSE TO YIELDS as they are sold on a discounted basis. The reason that prices are so low is that there are around 3 bids to purchase every 1 available US Treasury and – like in all auctions – the highest bid wins which means the lower the yields (interest rates) as prices rise.

      All US Treasuries (government debt) are OWNED AS ASSETS BY THEIR HOLDERS and are a principal part of the US financial system as assets.

      Any attempt to eliminate US Treasuries (government debt) as assets in the US financial system would result in massive disruptions of assets and credit in the US economy. Around $7 trillion in new US Treasuries are issued each year by the US Treasury with proceeds from around $6 trillion of those new US Treasuries going to pay off in full the US Treasuries that mature each year and about $1 trillion going to new additional US federal government debt.

      For a more comprehensive review of the US Treasuries markets, see:

      http://www.TreasuryDirect.gov

      If the US Congress decided to repeal the Federal Reserve Act, then it would have to take over all of the assets and liabilities of the Federal Reserve and lose all annual income from the Federal Reserve of around $100 billion a year presently including the $3.8 trillion in liabilities to member banks for the balances of their RESERVES ACCOUNTS inside the Federal Reserve which are owed to member banks.

      The US Treasury would also have to create $20 trillion of US dollars out of thin air plus the $3.8 trillion due the banks for their reserves accounts inside the Federal Reserve if it chose to end all federal debt (US Treasuries) and eliminate the Federal Reserve.

      This would result in destruction of a $20 trillion asset class (US Treasuries) and replacement with US dollars printed out of thin air.

      If Congress under its new vastly expanded authority of the US Treasury simply chose to continue spending more than $1 trillion that it did expended without revenues to pay for it then the US money supply would have to be increased by at least $1 trillion a year to pay for that.

      The US Money supply would jump from $13.5 trillion at present to around $38 trillion from its present less than $14 trillion as soon as those changes were implemented.

      Likely, as a result of the nearly TRIPLING OF THE US MONEY SUPPLY the value of the US dollar would plummet dramatically and there would be vast inflation in the prices of good and services as a result.

      But, some folks would be happy apparently because there would be no more Federal Reserve in the USA.

        The FED monitors the economic activity, they tell the Treasury Dept. How much money they need to run the economy. The Treasury prints and mints the money. They give the money to the FED then the FED lends that money back to all of us with interest. It’s the biggest poncy scheme in history. All that debt is interest and the original money we gave them in the 1st place owed to the FED. And it’s global system. It was designed to fail. Woodrow Wilson after signing into law the FRA. ;
        I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great
        industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of
        credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our
        activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the
        worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated
        Governments in the civilized world — no longer a Government by free
        opinion, no longer a Government by conviction and the vote of the
        majority, but a Government by the opinion and duress of a small group of
        dominant men.
        No one dares to amend the FRA because those who even talk about it will be blamed for the subsequent crash. They are in total control. The law says the President appoints the Head of the FED, but the FED gives the Pres. a list to pick from. The last two presidents who talked bout amending the Act and were planning to take steps to do so were shot. Hummmm?

          The Federal Reserve and its 12 Regional Banks monitor and report on a VAST ARRAY OF ECONOMIC DATA all of which can be found by all on their excellent web site at:

          http://www.FederalReserve.gov

          The Federal Reserve does not supply any money to the US economy other than maintaining proper liquidity in the banking system it regulates through the use of TOMO and POMO which they have done for 100+ years.

          The Federal Reserve DOES NOT “LEND ANY MONEY BACK TO US AT ALL” and that assertion is patently and laughably absurd and false.

          What the Federal Reserve does is to buy a relatively small amount of US Treasuries (federal government debt) and it currently owns about 14% of the US Treasuries with holdings of around $2.5 trillion of the $20 trillion total outstanding and it only purchases about 8% of newly issued US Treasuries each year through TOMO and POMO to supply liquidity.

          The Federal Reserve is now in the process of reducing its $4.4 trillion balance sheet by around 50% between now and the end of 2018 and their holdings of US Treasuries will fall to around $1.25 trillion.

          Your assertion that the central bank and banking system was designed to fail is so preposterously absurd as to not even merit further discussion.

          I would suggest you learn about the US Treasuries markets at:

          http://www.TreasuryDirect.gov

          The Federal Reserve has practically nothing whatsoever to do with the USA economy and is MERELY A CENTRAL BANK designed to regulate the USA banking system and to maintain stability and liquidity and integrity in the banking system of the USA which it has done a superb job of successfully handling for the past 103+ years.

  • mtntrek3

    Here’s to hoping we can find solutions towards the middle if at all possible.

    • SoCalBeachDude

      Cutting federal spending by 16% and increasing federal taxes by 16% is the sweet middle that America needs to reach as soon as possible. And that is the ONLY ISSUE that matters at all for the USA.

      • mtntrek3

        Could be, but I wouldn’t hold my breath on it considering the un-cooperation between the two sides.

        • SoCalBeachDude

          Well, that is the middle and that is what needs to be done and they have less than 90 days to get the federal debt ceiling and next year’s budget matters dealt with.

          • mtntrek3

            The thing is……… we should have been dealing with this 20-30 years ago. It’s most likely a foregone conclusion now. Like I’ve said several times…… astronomical tax hikes or draconian cuts. Take your pick. Either way……. we’re done.

          • SoCalBeachDude

            Yes, and many of us have been worrying about and working on the issues of debt for the past 36 years, but no, we are not “done” at all but there will be much higher interest rates and higher taxes and spending cuts as well as asset value collapses ahead as a result of the enormous EVERYWHERE BUBBLES that were blown over the past 36 years since 1981 – just as expected and just as predicted.

    Glad to see some of these negative comments getting deleted. It’s why I left this blog some many months ago. I am for freedom of expression; however, I am also for consequences to negative expression. If you don’t like this blog, go hang out someplace else!!!

    • JC Teecher

      Negativity will always be a part of any blog, be it a liberal one or Christian based, etc.
      However; the out right, continual bashing of Christians is such an over-ruling force with about 5 or 6 regulars here, that it has taken over the discussions.

      I guessed you missed the rally to have ScBeech dudes wings clipped, from all his copy and posting of off topic links and general rudeness?

      Over 20 regulars voted to see something done about it, but the owner gets mileage from all that stuff so he was allowed to do as usual.

      We are now trying to promote a campaign of everyone just blocking him out, as well as some of the other Christian hating, liberal, trouble makers, like Carl.

      He knows nothing but bashing and blaming Christians and our God, and His Holy Word. We are sick of it.
      He figured out a way to keep us from blocking him, so I found a way to use Kill File that works on most browsers, to silence him.
      It is sad to have to do something that the site owner should be doing, but he has his reasons, just like he deletes any comments he finds that don’t go along with his ideology. His site, so I respect that, but now; things are different as he is in the slime light, politically, and every move will be scrutinized. Even the moves of selective moderation on here.

          This is how people work and that includes christians who think they are better than everyone else because they are going to be in heaven with jesus.

          • Paul Patriot

            Incorrect, Christians never think “they are better than everyone else…”.

            Christians are sinners saved by Grace.

            This is a mindless mantra that is repeated by people that reject Gods Truth, and do not want to investigate things for themselves.

            Your last paragraph is at great odds with what Jesus Christ said……there are two destinations, so, you are calling him a liar ands have believed the lie.

            Jesus is the only way to Heaven. Christians don’t think their any better, we are all filthy, rebellious sinners with the same opportunity to receive the salvation given us by God….but we must humble ourselves, repent and turn to ” the way the truth ands the life…” And “the only name under heaven given to men in which they might be saved”.

          • JC Teecher

            Justification for wickedness and excuses for behavior uncommon among people that have not been indoctrinated by liberalism/worldism/exaggerated self importance, is what makes you people tick.

            You say you don’t hate Christians, but all you do is continually bash our beliefs and our Creator. We do not care that you don’t agree with us or believe as we do, just stfu and leave us alone so that we may live life as we determine is best for us.

            You atheists and deists, with your worldly and short view of eternity, can’t ever seem to have peace, so you spend your whole lives trying to interfere with ours.
            We don’t care that you don’t care about eternity, so if you believe we all end up in the same place forever, and there are never no consequences for your actions, then so be it.
            Get over yourselves already, we get it, you are either jealous, or have dna imprint that will not allow you to stop buggin us. Go save a little green frog or an insect or something, because we have a Saviour already, and you do not want anything to do with Him so you try to turn us away from Him by calling Him and His Father a liar.

            I can guarantee one thing Obi Wan; we do all go to the same place after the Millennium, when God returns to this Earth with His Throne of Judgment.
            We all see Him face to face and give an account of every idle word not forgiven for. And then the judgment, some to eternal happiness with flowing garments of white for all their good works, and others just make it with a pair of tightey whiteys, and some with nothing but condemnation for all their bad deeds, to be led off into the Lake of Fire where their soul is blotted out, forever and ever.
            Where will you be on that day?
            Where will your soul be headed on that day?
            Only God knows….you know the One you say is nothing to you, and sometimes even you say He does not exist. Which is it? Cat got your tongue?

          • SoCalBeachDude

            Keep your “beliefs” to yourself and then you won’t have any issue at all with that.

  • jox

    Although I share some of the economic points, I completely disagree on the moral side. The family is not the brick of the society anymore. You are fighting a battle that is already lost. If you want to know why, read a few chapters of the book ‘The next 100 years’. It’s a huge trend of mankind. Those who try to resist will be defeated, not because they are wrong or right, but by the huge and blind forces of evolution. Read the book.

    • JC Teecher

      Actually, we, the true Christians will not be defeated and the “Book” says so.
      What it does say is that the “majority” will turn to idolatry/liberalism/worldly/self loving, ways. That Christians will be condemned by these types of people for everything gone wrong with the world. We may appear to be “defeated” because of our low numbers, but we will stand out and stand up.

      Even 50% of our so-called brothers and sisters, that go to church regularly, have denied truth and voted for a liberal platform under the demoncrats and the continued shedding of innocent blood in the killing fields of Planned non-parenthood. The tally of the voters is in, and 93% of all African American women that voted in November in the potus election…voted for Hitlery. Not surprisingly; 50 % of those same voters claimed to be Christians, and said they attended church on a weekly basis. White, college educated females, were close to the same numbers, without the Christian claiming part. Hispanics…just as bad.

      But true Christians are winning the war, just not as visible as the immoral majority is winning theirs.

      Our Heavenly Father never forsakes us nor leaves us.
      He did not take us across the parting of the Sea in November, just to run us into a box canyon to be killed like fish in a barrel. We are, and always will be…triumphant!

      • Carl

        Well it must be true because your fake book tells you so. Do you think that the book would say at the end YOU lose? Wouldn’t be very popular if that was the case now would it?

      • jox

        The book of the christians says that christians are right and other people are wrong. Wow. What a surprise. And the book fits perfectly with your moral and political views, it’s perfect!!

        Anyway, read the book I sudgested, and you will understand why your traditional view of the world is doomed. I’m sorry. It’s a fact.

        • SoCalBeachDude

          Indeed. Not just wrong but totally myopic.

        • JC Teecher

          If you believe that the traditional view of the world is doomed, then why even care about the moral or political views.

          That is a defeatist attitude of which you see no hope, no progress on a personal level, and progress on a spiritual level is doomed as well.

          I know better. I know there are individuals out there that have a more positive attitude and are not defeatist driven. I know that as a mature student of biblical truths, I can, with God’s direction and help, help others to gain progress on all fronts through biblical TKU (truth, knowledge, understanding).
          Evolution has a grip on some people like our own Christian hating Carl. In fact he may be a product of not only evolution but transhumanism/aka genetic manipulation through blood linage, or through forces of evil that have intervened in physical life at some point.
          Not too many normal people can hate God, Jesus Christ, and Christians that much…all the time. He is the exception and not the rule, thank God.

          I have too much life, love, liberty, and Patriotism in my blood and bones to fall for some man’s writings that try to push an agenda of defeat with continual pessimism, negativity, to cause one to live life with a cynical and despondent attitude.

          We have enough of those already, and what does that say about you as you are promoting such hopelessness?

          • Carl

            I don’t hate christians. What I hate is that christians make excuses for what is in their bible and excuses for what god does in said bible.

            Top 4 excuses christians use to justify gods cruelty:

            1. god can do whatever he wants with his creation.

            2. the people were worshiping false gods and doing child sacrifice so murdering ALL including infants and children was acceptable.

            3. who are you to question god.

            4. gods ways are above our own simple human ways and we cannot understand the mind of god.

            And no these excuses are not rational or logical.

          • jox

            I’m not promoting hopelessness. I am explaining to you that the megatrends in the mankind evolution (child mortality rate, life expectancy, intellectual vs manual work, birth rate and so on) are changing the role of family as the structure of society. We will see more divorces, abortions, people with no children, homosexual marriages, etc. This has nothing to do with moral or religion, but are consequences of deep changes of the last century, that altered the way humans lived over 100.000 years.

            There will be forces of resistance against such changes in the name of religion and tradition, in chrstianity and islam, but they are doomed: the forces of megatrends are unstoppable. I don’t say the change is good or bad, but unstoppable.

            For my part, I believe the intelligent attitude is to adapt to the change and forget tradition. I don’t plan to marry another man though.

          • JC Teecher

            LOL, “marry another man” yea that would not be good.
            Anyways; that is between them and God, as I don’t approve, but I don’t want that stuff crammed down the throats of my grandkids, as if it is acceptable by our Creator.

            jox, I see where you are coming from, and actually agree, because i have been seeing it for the past 30 years.
            You are right again by the fact that the “megatrends” are guided by demonic forces.
            As the number of families and people in general have no moral compass, then evil spirit influence seeps in, and sets up shop. and then everything that goes against civility and the basic goodness that once was the backbone of the family unit is history.
            Not to be a smartazz, but I see this only getting worse and hearing it from another person via book or video, does not change how i adapt, because i have already adapted. The wife and I are at a crossroads because of her daughter, and I have already laid down my position years ago, and she is in the process of making a life changing decision. My mind is already made up, and I will not waver, as I am almost 61 and I take no sheet from anyone anymore, especially a burned out infantile adolescent druggie and smatazz. so adapt or be miserable. I choose adaptation and relocation.
            have a good time with any adapting you might exercise.

    The pledge of allegiance was written in 1892 by the socialist minister Francis Bellamy. He wrote it in hopes the ALL countries would use it as their pledge (not just the USA).

    In 1923 the words the Flag of the United States of America were added.

    The original salute to the flag was NOT with the hand over the heart. Rather it was with the arm extended toward the flag palm down. In WWII the salute looked too much like the Nazi salute so this portion of it was removed and now only the hand over the heart is used in the USA when pledging to the flag (created by a socialist).

    Fun Fact: Did you know that under god was not in the original pledge of allegiance. It was added in 1954 at the urging of Eisenhower.

    Now isn’t that a curious, curious thing all of us were never taught in school. History is certainly very interesting and yet most of us are ignorant about ALL of it. This includes your religious history and indoctrination.

    By staying catholic with all the pedo priests you are supporting them. Doesn’t that bother you morally? Many pedo priests are being supported still by the vatican and many are reassigned to other parishes.

    • SoCalBeachDude
    • White Knight

      Oh, if it were only that bad, Carl. It’s worse, much, much worse. They get PROMOTED. You read that correctly. Shocked at my opening statement? Intrigued? Good.

      I’ll stay as brief as I can. I actually am headed toward the priesthood, not sure if I’ll actually become one or not but that is between Christ and I. What I really want to point out is that the Catholic Church went underground in the 60’s. Go to a “Catholic Church.” You’ll note the mass is spoken in English and the priest faces the congregation. That isn’t Catholic already. It’s called the ‘Novus Ordo’ (New Order) mass. A fraud. A counterfeit. The whole church with its ‘popes’ has been a fraud since the second Vatican Council. They (Masons, Communists) infiltrated and overthrew the Vatican and the Papacy. They have stricken the shepherd and scattered the flock. Note the massive drop in attendance at Catholic Churches in the 60’s? Now you know. Those who were alert wisely fled.

      We were warned about this by God, many times. We did not heed His warnings and are now suffering His just punishments. Point being these pedos are members of the Novus Ordo church.

      If you want to see what the Catholic Church looks like, sounds like, feels like, find an SSPX or FSSP run chapel. Or, any sedevacantist church. I have yet to hear of a single pedo in those churches and there is a palpable difference in the congregations there. The people are… holy. Best way to describe it.

      Best site to clarify what the heck I’m talking about: http://www.novusordowatch.org. Satan has proven he is indeed very clever. His Church pretends to be Christ’s Church… hiding the truth from (most of) the world. Jesus help us all.

A so-called “flat tax” would impose a HUGE BURDEN on the bottom 50% of income earners and would be highly REGRESSIVE. Moreover, even if the entire GDP of the US were to be taxed with a so-called “flat tax” it would only bring in about $2.7 trillion ($18,000,000,000,000 x 0.15 = $2,700,000,000,000) which would be significantly below the current federal income tax revenues of around $3.2 trillion.

    Do the math. And where would the folks who current spend every drop of money they have and pay no federal income taxes at all get the money to pay your so-called “flat tax?”

      Video – HA! Kayfaber Trump LITERALLY Entered Professional Wrestling In 2009!

      I laff. I laff hard. So Trump is an old hand at this. And maybe, just maybe, my little analogy is more apt than I imagined.

      • SoCalBeachDude

        Huh, dude?

        • ramrodd

    Very well said, and speaking truth about the reality of where we are, right on prophetic schedule.

    I believe in standing up and speaking out, but, as you so well stated, it is not going to make a big difference or lasting difference, as the ends is already established.

    Great comments, thank you! Nice to hear someone who truly grasps the big picture and Biblical prophecy.

    God Bless!

    Agree with everything, but; we are beyond beyond bringing our Nation back to civility with ” ideas, values and principles”. There are far too many tyrants in positions of power, education and communication for this to happen. We are far past this solution I’m afraid.

    Is anyone else getting the Apache cPanel screen when they try to go to the TheEconomicCollapseBlog home page?

    • Jim

      Yes.

        It seems to be OK now. Thanks.

    The look won’t matter if he has a video of him sporting a bazooka blowing up 50 gallon barrels of diesel and ammonia nitrate with faces of isis freaks painted on them.

    That would turn some heads and leave a lasting impression. I only charge a nominal fee for PR work, if anyone is interested.
