FBI warns of threat from anti-government extremists

Reuters) – Anti-government extremists opposed to taxes and regulations pose a growing threat to local law enforcement officers in the United States, the FBI warned on Monday.
These extremists, sometimes known as "sovereign citizens," believe they can live outside any type of government authority, FBI agents said at a news conference.
The extremists may refuse to pay taxes, defy government environmental regulations and believe the United States went bankrupt by going off the gold standard.
Routine encounters with police can turn violent "at the drop of a hat," said Stuart McArthur, deputy assistant director in the FBI’s counterterrorism division.
"We thought it was important to increase the visibility of the threat with state and local law enforcement," he said.
In May 2010, two West Memphis, Arkansas, police officers were shot and killed in an argument that developed after they pulled over a "sovereign citizen" in traffic. More…
"I spent 33 years and four months in active military service and during that period I spent most of my time as a high class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street and the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism. I helped make Mexico and especially Tampico safe for American oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefit of Wall Street. I helped purify Nicaragua for the International Banking House of Brown Brothers in 1902-1912. I brought light to the Dominican Republic for the American sugar interests in 1916. I helped make Honduras right for the American fruit companies in 1903. In China in 1927 I helped see to it that Standard Oil went on its way unmolested. Looking back on it, I might have given Al Capone a few hints. The best he could do was to operate his racket in three districts. I operated on three continents."

Sunday February 5, 2012 Romney and Gingrich are so crooked. They know how to make a $ Billion the easy way. A 5 year old with a pocket-calculator could do it. The difference is that a child doesn't have the capacity to know right from wrong. Dylan Ratigan With David Stockman On Romney, Gingrich And Crony Capitalism. Some savvy argument respecting the specious reasoning that either is qualified to lead.
Sunday February 5, 2012 Further to the November 2011 story assuring you that Meredith Whitney would be vindicated (from the recent Alphabet Networks decrying her warnings of the pending Municipal Bond Defaults), here is another tear in the fabric.
Every Municipal Bond in the United States will default. Cities & Counties will fail one after the other because they have all been hijacked by so-called high-finance, promising that they can have one hamburger today if they give Goldman-Sachs two tomorrow.
If you are invested in the Stock Market, or in ETF’s or Treasuries or anything other than tangible items, you will lose. Get out before you own as much junk as a Municipal Bond Fund. Don’t be blind to the writing on the wall. First it was Harrisburg, PA, then Jefferson Co. (Birmingham, AL), Soon it will be Cook Co. (Chicago). Los Angeles is way up on the list as is the entire State of California.
You have never experienced this, and neither have I, because it hasn’t happened before, but that is not a good reason for leaving your investments in what have proven to be ridiculously over-rated vehicles like stocks and ETF's, Treasuries, and Municipal Bonds. It's time to get real before you are only left with pocket lint. What the State Controller is advocating is what MF Global did before going under. namely payment delays, and internal and external financing!
California Faces Cash Shortfall by March on Low Receipts, Controller Says
By Christopher Palmeri – Jan 31, 2012 4:37 PM ET
California (STOCA1)’s cash may be exhausted by March as tax collections trail budgeted amounts, Controller John Chiang said in a letter to lawmakers.
The nation’s most-populous state needs $3.3 billion for March and the first two weeks of April, Chiang said in the letter to state Senator Mark Leno and Assemblyman Bob Blumenfield, who lead the Joint Legislative Budget Committee. The Assembly Budget Committee is holding a hearing today in Sacramento on the state’s spending plan.
Unlike 2009, when he was forced to issue IOUs to creditors, the controller said the current cash shortfall can be managed through payment delays, as well as external and internal borrowing. He urged legislators to pursue that course.
“Although this cash management plan relies on still more borrowing, payment delays and deferrals, we believe this is the most prudent and responsible course of action considering we have about four weeks before the advent of the cash shortfall,” Chiang said in the letter.
State receipts were $2.6 billion lower than forecast through Dec. 31, while expenditures were an equal amount higher, Chiang said. In a previous report, Chiang said the collections shortfall for the fiscal year that began in July was led by corporate and personal-income taxes.
The Assembly panel voted to approve $865 million in internal borrowing recommended by Chiang at its meeting today. More…

I Call Bullshit!
Sunday February 5, 2012 "Move Forward"? Don't you mean Change? Please help me define what "move forward" means? Does it mean that you'll push paper around? It sounds like the Obama Administration is doing something if you just take the comment at face value, but if you think about it, you can see that it is another example of the fact that they do not know what the word transparency means. If that "move forward" line is not enough opacity for you, Geithner adds: "they've begun intensively exploring" and they are "making efforts", and "pushing forward"! Do these people ever listen to themselves? Completely full of crap! Completely devoid of truth.

Obama administration to move forward with closing Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac
By Brady Dennis, Published: February 2
The Obama administration plans to push forward this spring with efforts to wind down government-backed housing giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and attract more private funding to mortgage markets, Treasury Secretary Timothy F. Geithner said Thursday.
Geithner told reporters that administration officials have begun more intensively exploring legislative options for overhauling the nation’s housing finance system with lawmakers on Capitol Hill, as well as with academics and outside advocacy groups.
Still, he said that concrete changes won’t come soon.
“It’s going to be a complicated process,” Geithner said. “We don’t expect to legislate this year.”
Since the financial crisis, the country’s housing finance system has relied almost exclusively on federal support for funding new home loans. In a white paper last February, the administration outlined three options for a long-term overhaul of the housing market.
Each of those proposals retained the Federal Housing Administration, which focuses on loans to borrowers who can’t afford sizable down payments. Each option also proposed the elimination of Fannie and Freddie but offered different approaches on how — or whether — to replace them. More…
Sunday February 5, 2012 When all of us in the real world have to "report" within three calendar days after shares are owned, influenced or controlled, but our government employees get to have 30 days, you have to wonder why we bother voting at all. Is it so that we can delude ourselves that we live in a free country? Why are there two sets of laws in a country that has a constitution that strictly forbids it? What will it take for the American people to get serious about taking these hooligans down? Notice how they get lots of bipartisan support when it has to do with "their" freedom to steal.
Senate OKs insider trading curbs on lawmakers
By David Lawder Posted 2012/02/02 at 7:19 pm EST
The Senate on Thursday approved new curbs aimed at preventing lawmakers from trading shares based on inside information, but also extended the bill’s disclosure requirements to more than 300,000 other federal employees.
The Senate voted 96-3 to pass the Stop Trading on Congressional Knowledge (STOCK) Act, which would require members of Congress to file electronic disclosures of their stock trades within 30 days of the transactions.
As a rare piece of legislation with strong bipartisan support in a deeply divided Congress – and the promise of a quick signature by President Barack Obama – the measure was quickly laden with more than 20 amendments this week.
Senators who saw the "clean government bill" as a vehicle bound for quick passage sought to attach proposals ranging from a ban on executive bonuses at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to a limit on terms for members of Congress.
Similar legislation is pending in the Republican-led House of Representatives, and a spokeswoman for Majority Leader Eric Cantor has said he plans to bring it to a vote this month. More…
"By the skillful and sustained use of propaganda, one can make a people see even heaven as hell or an extremely wretched life as paradise"
Saturday February 4, 2012 China, India, Venezuela, Iran, Russia, Brazil, Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Afghanistan, Angola, and UAE (to name a few) have defied Hillary R. Clinton and signed currency deals with China. There is a new level of brinksmanship and one might be wise to consider this caveat from Adolf Hitler:
"Any alliance whose purpose is not the intention to wage war is senseless and useless."
War is still distant because these nations hope that American war-mongers can be appeased. For the time-being they are side-stepping the petro-dollar which Rumsfeld, Cheney and H. and W. Bush were willing to forfeit our souls for. The question will be: 'Is the U.S. ready to one-up these nations and start another war in the Persian Gulf?' If we do, these nations will fight against us and will effectively be the Neo-Allied Forces. America will play the part of the Neo-Nazi forces. You do not need any imagination to see the similarities.
If you believe that good triumphs over evil, then you're head is really going to be in a quandary, isn't it?!
The following article is showing that China is getting the Chinese people involved in shoring-up the inventory of gold in the country. Consider this move like the War Bond movements in the US and England during the great wars. Having gold on hand is critical in a world war.
Furthermore, this new gold investment can be adjusted as investment demand and support the entry of the Renminbi as a convertible currency.
Add to that the potential for the Chinese to enact an Executive Order 6102 (Gold Confiscation Act) of their own mimicking Franklin D. Roosevelt. A powerful war chest indeed. Just call it "mad money".
