...today’s “nut” is usually tomorrows’ news. When I suggested that gold would hit 1000 dollars to the ounce “within ten years” I penned that in 2001. I was “nuts’ I was a loon. Yet gold most certainly did that. The public is also finding it a bit scary that the NSA is privy to every single thing you ever do. We were just whacko conspiracy nuts. But now it’s on main stream TV. Ghee, maybe Bob wasn’t nuts after all?
The true visionaries of the world such as our Late beloved Bob Chapman and a very select handful of others have had to endure all manner of snickering abuse over the years as most of the things they had to say were considered “conspiracy nut” absurdities by the main stream. While I’ll never profess to be in the same league as Bob and some others, I too have endured my share of being the butt of jokes about “tin foil hats”, Conspiracy gone wild, and Lord knows what else.
But one thing about us supposed conspiracy nuts is that today’s “nut” is usually tomorrows’ news. When I suggested that gold would hit 1000 dollars to the ounce “within ten years” I penned that in 2001. I was “nuts’ I was a loon. Yet gold most certainly did just what we figured it would do. Likewise all the jabs we got when we predicted we’d go into Iraq, or the housing bubble, or the housing crash, or the credit crash. One time in 2000 we said that if we go by “fundamentals” the Bank of America should be bankrupt and go out of business within 5 years. It too was obviously the ranting of a lunatic. Yet in early 2008, we lost Lehmans, and 5 of the other majors were indeed fundamentally bankrupt. We missed by a few years, but you get the idea.
So I have to say that I’m not “above” having a small self indulgent grin on my face as day after day the public is learning that the things we’ve said that are going on in the dark shadows behind the curtain, isn’t some fodder for late night TV, it is as real as rain. For instance on Thursday morning CNBC had its paid actors act “completely surprised” that for a special fee some of the high frequency trading desks get economic information released to them ahead of the public outlets. The acting was sub par at best as they all feigned shock and surprise that this practice was going on.
So now John Q Public is catching on to the fact that “yes Toto we aren’t in Kansas any more.” People are just finding out through the main stream that the big time money folks are hyper trading on information that we are not able to see at the same time. “But this doesn’t sound fair” said one of the paid actors…to which the chorus chanted “no, it doesn’t!” and on and on. It was grand Theatre. But again, it is just to show the public that they aren’t responsible for knowing that “things like this go on every day”. (They do)
Oh Please, spare me the drama.
The public is also finding it a bit scary that the NSA is privy to every single thing you ever do. While we told you over and over about their covert spying on folks, no one paid attention. We were just whacko conspiracy nuts. But now it’s on main stream TV. Ghee, maybe Bob wasn’t nuts after all? How about the reporters getting snooped on? That’s really a thorn in their side. As you all know the media is part and parcel of the Obama/Left regime. So they took it very hard that their own savior and Master had taken it upon himself to spy into the reporters logs. They bit the hand that feeds them.
The IRS scandal finally has Mr. Public understanding what we’ve been saying for years on end. They use Government tools to punish anyone that says things that goes against the State. Their budget is limitless. If they want to target you or your organization, you are quickly out of money because of paying high priced lawyers to defend yourself and you have to fold. They never have to fold, their supply is limitless. So, they can beat up and crush anyone that goes against their particular agenda. Well it seems that the public is finally waking up to the reality that we are no longer the United States of America. We are the Soviet Union of the 60’s.
The only question is this…is America going to have a flashback to the days when it was truly a free country and the people were brave enough to stand up and demand change? Or will Football, American Idol, the Kardashians and the other Hollywood drama junk just absorb them all again, and they go back to being the same brain-dead zombies they were before? Well, time will tell but frankly I don’t have too much faith. Don’t forget it was just 8 short months ago that these same people that say they are so “outraged” by what’s going on…. voted back in power the very administration that is doing all this.
Maybe I should think that “hey, better late than never” but if you were so shallow of thought just 8 months ago, that you thought Obama and his gang of thieves were doing well enough to stay in power, I don’t know that I have much hope for a true reversal of attitude. No one, not even the media cared when we explained what “Fast and Furious” was all about and how it was an “end around” to abolish guns here. No one but a select few were calling for Holder to step down. The public went along like brainwashed sheep.
National Insecurity Hits Home
By William Horning
Barry Soetoro aka Obama said last week, “You can’t have 100% security and 100% privacy and zero inconvenience…we’re going to have to take some choices as a society.” As Devvy Kidd points out, those words were “spoken like a true totalitarian dictator.”
The State should not watch us, we should instead be watching them, but we haven’t.
The snooping is much worse than you are being told and it has been going on for a long time, by government and corporations, and it will get much, much worse unless Americans unite to stop it.
The NSA has opened huge centers in Hawaii and Georgia in the past year while construction of the mammoth NSA Cloud center in Utah is under construction. Two Israeli companies (the CIA says Israel is America’s main regional spy threat) and Boeing are also involved. The Titan supercomputer there will have almost unimaginable power.
What’s the solution? Repeal the Patriot Act. Stop the spying. Start getting rid of every government three and four letter agency and program not in the Constitution. Those are radical ideas only to minds willing to submit to tyranny. They would not be radical at all to our Founding Fathers, whom must be wondering how we became so submissive.
Will the Republicans fix the problems? That is unlikely since they led in its creation. It you read my American History Series, you know we are not operating under the Constitution anymore. We must demand it back.
Conservatives need to read real news, and not be distracted by programs such as Glen Beck’s easily destroyed and fanciful World War III conspiracy theory.
