CIA Purchases Libya on Behalf of Taxpayers

Wasn’t it surprising how the bumbling Libyan rebels suddenly invaded and captured Tripoli? Gaddafi’s six combat brigades were easily routed by the rebel’s famed “Three Stooges” platoon.

Weird, right?

Turns out, we captured Tripoli just like we did Baghdad and Afghanistan: CIA black helicopters dropped bales of cash on Gaddafi’s commanders, and bribed them not to fight (according to DEBKAFile).

How much cash? I don’t know, but I’m sure that you’ve heard the stories about the cargo plane’s stuffed with cash that went un-accounted for in Iraq and Afghanistan. However much it was, you can be sure of this: it was only the beginning. Now we will have to spend money battling insurgents, bribing tribal warlords to stop fighting, propping up the new government, etc.

And then comes billions of dollars in reconstruction contracts for the Cheney & Sons construction company. That’s why we bomb them first; if we just bribed them not to fight from the get-go, there would no reconstruction profits for politically-connected companies.

And at the end of the day, Libya will remain a member of OPEC (just like Kuwait and Iraq), and you won’t even get a break on the price of gasoline. All the spoils will turn into oil company profits.

Such a deal, right?

But I don’t remember signing-off on this project. As a matter of fact, I don’t even remember my representatives in Congress debating and approving this project.

Funny how that works here in our so-called Democracy.

Curiously, the Tea Party has no objection to this expenditure of taxpayer dollars. Apparently, invasion without representation is no problem for them. Reminds me of the neocons….

Caught Slaving – Again

A few weeks ago, CNBC viewers suffered the bizarre spectacle of Larry Kudlow, neck veins bulging, shouting into the camera:


Let’s see… We have 45 million people on food stamps, Great Depression style unemployment, weak economic growth, and Kudlow thinks the solution is to bring in even more people?

I was baffled. But then the New York Times published “America’s Sweatshop Diplomacy” and everything became clear. The story is about how imported sweatshop workers (J-1 visas) went on strike at a Hershey’s plant in Pennsylvania:

“They received $8 an hour, but after fees and deductions, including overpriced rent for crowded housing, they netted between $1 and $3.50 an hour. Hershey’s once had its own unionized workers packing its candy bars, starting at $18 to $30 an hour. Now the company outsources distribution to a non-union company that hires most of its workers from the J-1 program.”

When Kudlow advocates more immigration, he is really advocating the importation of Third World sweatshop workers who are compensated at a fraction of the minimum wage.

But it makes sense. Because when Kudlow talks about “growth” he is not talking about economic growth that will benefit the entire nation. He is talking about the growth of corporate profits, and the paychecks of corporate CEOs. And Kudlow was apoplectic because inflation in China was driving up sweatshop wages.

Mystery solved.

I have been saying all along that nobody in Washington cares about unemployment. And this Times story is proof. When it comes to employment, the only thought our elites have is: “how do we staff our sweatshops at no more than $2 per hour?”

Mutant Russian Dogs Poised to Invade Alaska!

The Russians are planning to build a tunnel under the Bearing Straight to connect Siberia to Alaska. But what will the bullet trains that run through the tunnel bring us?

Super-intelligent mutant dogs. That’s what.

Dogs that know how to ride a train into the city because there is more food there. The dogs even know how to wait for traffic lights before crossing the street.

Since when are dogs smart enough to commute back and forth to the city just like humans? Answer: they aren’t. These dogs obviously got loose from some demonic Soviet genetic engineering lab.

Planet of Apes? Guess again. Here comes Planet of the Dogs!

Simon Puts the Smack Down on Cramer

And it’s about time. During the numerous market panics over the past few years, we have seen Cramer pour gasoline on the fire. He was at it again on Thursday. At the end of the first video below, Cramer says:

“We have these banks. You don’t know what they really own because there’s absolutely very little clarity. And they don’t have enough capital. And they may have a window from an ECB, but in the end, even if they have to use it – we saw what happens, you get to the paper and it’s like panic is instilled by using it.”

Cramer was informing viewers that the situation has hopeless, that the ECB could do nothing to stop bank runs, and the situation was a state of panic. Gasoline, no? I mean, the market was already in a panic.

That’s why the great Simon Hobbs got in his face, as opposed to the other simpleton broadcasters on CNBC who should all be fired. What numbskulls!

Here comes Simon, and his pressure brought out a surprising revelation from Cramer:

It’s amazing that Cramer thinks his opinion about these things matters at all. I mean, did he really know anything about the situation at Bear Stearns? Was he in the loop, discussing matters with Bernanke, Geithner, Paulson, and President Bush? I doubt it. And I’ll bet that he knows even less about the situation in Europe.

And yet, he makes these statements like he is Moses handing down commandments. WTF?

Cramer thinks that he has a fiduciary responsibility to yell fire in a crowded theater, because if he doesn’t, and a fire starts, people will be mad at him. Ridiculous.

But if Cramer knows that hedge funds (plural) were targeting European bank stocks, doesn’t he have a fiduciary responsibility to tell what he knows the SEC?

I’m no lawyer, but aren’t coordinated bear-raids a violation of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934?

At the 1:48 mark of the second video, Cramer says:

“I do know that there’s large hedge funds that are concerned about the liquidity of banks, and they’re gunna try to do what they did here.”

Meaning: cause a Lehman-like collapse.

Well, how about it Cramer? Are you going to use your inside information to save the day by informing the authorities about this conspiracy of hedge funds?

Is Rick Perry Some Kind of Communist?

Rick Perry thinks that “printing money” is treason. He wants to string up Ben Bernanke, Texas style. But I wonder if he would have strung up George Washington whose army was funded by the fiat Continental Dollar?

You see, back in the “Tea Party” days, nobody wanted to pay taxes – not even to support the Revolutionary War effort. Washington had to spend much of his time scrounging for funds instead of fighting the British. So, Congress fired up the printing presses, funded Washington’s army, and the USA was born in a blaze of fiat glory.

But if Rick Perry were around back then, he would have put a stop to it. He would have strangled the fledgling USA in its crib. Note to Rick Perry: What are you? Some kind of communist?

Here we are about to plunge into a Tea Party-induced austerity recession, and Perry is warning Bernanke to not make any effort to prevent it. This is some strategy the Tea Party crowd has: wreck the economy, blame it on Obama, and take the White House in 2012.

It might work, but it strikes me as a tad bit evil.

Perry has joined Sarah Palin and Michelle Bachmann in seeking multinational support. That is done by lashing out against Bernanke because the looser Fed monetary policy is, the more inflation rises in China (due to their currency peg). And higher wages for Chinese factory workers cuts into the sweatshop profits so beloved by CEOs like Jeffery Immelt.

Once again, it’s important to remember that the Federal Reserve Bank is the only sovereign institution left in Washington, D.C. And that is exactly why it comes under attack from the hatchet men of the multinationals. Slave labor is insanely profitable, and to attract huge corporate contributions for his campaign, Rick Perry knows that volunteering to string-up Bernanke is the best way to signal his commitment to the globalist cause. That’s why he went after Bernanke right out-of-the-box after announcing that he was running for President.

If Rick Perry gets his way, the USA’s monetary policy will be made in Beijing to suit the global sweatshop industry.

Note to Rick Perry: I ask again. What are you? Some kind of communist?
