Dangerous health care insanity spreads

   If the news media would report on the CONTENTS of the proposed federal health care takeover (see details below) it would die in a day. People would rise up, as they did over the recent illegal-alien amnesty attempt, and demand defeat. Instead, the media reports meaningless drivel, politicing, promises, compromises, party squabbles and leaves out the substance of this incredibly bad hostile takeover of your doctor's office, complete with end-your-life paperwork issued by bureaucrats, denial of service, strict rationing, cash penalties for selecting your own doctors or treatment. Gun-Rights Linkage: With this much total control over your medical and financial records, there's a very short step between automated analysis of your "fitness" to keep and bear arms, and the various prohibited-possessor lists the government is keeping and recommending. That's just my idle observation, the bill does not explicitly address it in any way.   The lames

Millions For Energy Behavior Research
07-30-2009  •  www.rightsidenews.com 

A Democratic U.S. congressman has quietly introduced legislation to allocate tens of millions of dollars to create a social and behavioral research department to identify factors that influence energy consumption. 

The new, covert social and behavioral sciences research program is to be mounted at the Department of Energy, according to the measure (HR 3247) proposed by Washington State Congressman Brian Baird. Its pressing mission will be to better understand social and behavioral factors that influence energy consumption and acceptance as well as adoption rates of new energy technologies. 

The valuable social and behavioral data will be shoved down the respective throats of Energy Department divisions which will be forced to integrate its results into their work. This will, in turn, improve the design, development, demonstration and application of the nation's   Read Full Story

Texas plant fire under control, evacuations lifted
07-30-2009  •  ARELIS HERNANDEZ  
An evacuation order was issued for thousands of central Texas residents and Texas A&M University campus was closed Thursday as a fire burned at a chemical plant and warehouse that processes explosive ammonium nitrate.   Black smoke settled over Bryan, a city of about 80,000 people about 100 miles north of Houston, after the fire started about noon at the nearby El Dorado Chemical Co., said fire dispatcher Andy Throne. The plant blends and packages fertilizer and other chemicals, including ammonium nitrate, a chemical used to make explosives.   The fire continued to smolder but was under control Thursday night and the evacuation order was lifted for a majority of the city, said Bryan Fire Chief Mike Donoho. A scaled-back order remained in effect for only a small area surrounding the warehouse.   Some people had not been allowed to return home by late Thursday, said Michele Meade, deputy emergency management coordinator for Brazos County.

Foreign Investment in the U.S. - Going Down, Down, Down
0730/2009  •  Gold Eagle 
Here at Casey Research, we've been watching the actions of foreign holders of U.S. dollars as closely as a Las Vegas pit boss watches a card player on a $1 million winning streak. Many of those in the deflation camp largely, or entirely, ignore the potential role these foreign holders may play in the drama now unfolding. But in fact, foreigners have, over the last decade, been by far the single most important source of buying for U.S. Treasuries. Given the Treasury's need to flog on the order of $3 trillion worth of its unbacked paper this year just to keep the government's doors open - and that is a four- or fivefold increase over 2008 - the foreign buyers not only have to show up for the Treasury auctions, they have to show up in droves.  Read Full Story

Bernanke’s response: He didn’t know. The $500 billion lent out should have been discussed by Congress, Grayson says. “That is how democracy is supposed to work " not through secret deliberations” of 12 unelected bankers, the members of the Federal Reserve.  Read Full Story

How You Finance Goldman Sachs’ Profits
07/30/2009  •  Mother Jones 
An insider’s view of Wall Street’s rebound. This is perhaps the most important thing I learned over my years working on Wall Street, including as a managing director at Goldman Sachs: Numbers lie. In a normal time, the fact that the numbers generated by the nation's biggest banks can't be trusted might not matter very much to the rest of us. But since the record bank profits we're now hearing about are essentially created by massive federal funding, perhaps it behooves us to dig beneath their data. On July 27, 10 congressmen, led by Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.), did just that, writing a letter to Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke questioning the Fed's role in Goldman's rapid return to the top of Wall Street.  Read Full Story

Goldman Sachs is too entrenched in the Federal Government. What is President Barack Obama going to do about it? July 17 (Bloomberg) -- President Barack Obama announced today he was nominating Robert Hormats, a vice chairman of Goldman Sachs International, to a top economic position at the State Department. The Goldman Sachs issue creates extreme cognitive dissonance in the media. Goldman is evil. Goldman is robbing taxpayers. Obama supports the "little guy." How does the media reconcile these conflicting beliefs? Thus far, the media has ignored Barack Obama's connections to Goldman Sachs. Otherwise, one might be forced to ask the uncomfortable questions: Does Obama care more about Wall Street than Main Street?  Read Full Story

It's becoming more than occasionally appalling to watch the games played by Goldman Sachs as they run roughshod over Washington. First some background. Goldman applied and was quickly granted official status as a bank holding company during the crisis last September, with the result being immediate and unlimited access to the Federal Reserve's discount window. Ahhh, easy overnight cash, but at a stiff price you naturally assumed. Not so fast, this is Government Sachs we are discussing. Conversion to a bank holding company would normally require higher regulatory capital requirements, reduced leverage and less risk overall. But again, not if you're Goldman Sachs. In January, Blankfein requested an exemption from these pesky new requirements, and true to its capture, the Fed naturally granted the exemption, explained in this letter to Government Sachs dated February 5th.  Read Full Story

GMO Scandal: The Long Term Effects of Genetically Modified Food on Humans
07-30-2009  One of the great mysteries surrounding the spread of GMO plants around the world since the first commercial crops were released in the early 1990’s in the USA and Argentina has been the absence of independent scientific studies of possible long-term effects of a diet of GMO plants on humans or even rats. Now it has come to light the real reason. The GMO agribusiness companies like Monsanto, BASF, Pioneer, Syngenta and others prohibit independent research. An editorial in the respected American scientific monthly magazine, Scientific American, August 2009 reveals the shocking and alarming reality behind the proliferation of GMO products throughout the food chain of the planet since 1994. There are no independent scientific studies published in any reputed scientific journal in the world for one simple reason. It is impossible to independently verify that GMO crops such as Monsanto Roundup Ready Soybeans or MON8110 GMO maize perform as the company claims, or that, as the company also  Read Full Story

As I have previously documented, Larry Summers is a big fat idiot. Unfortunately, idiocy is not limited to the White House economic team. Barney Frank - the congress member taking the laboring oar in "solving" the economic crisis - is also a big fat idiot. Frank is calling for credit default swaps to be limited to the giant "market makers". Given that it was the giants trading in cds which brought down the economy (see this and this), Frank's proposal would be like saying that only convicted arsonists can work on the fire department's fire suppression team.  Read Full Story

   This case outraged many rights activists, and alerted the state to the tyrannical changes that had been quietly made to self-defense law in Arizona. It also provided significant motivation for legislative changes that brought about the Castle Doctrine law, and a reversal of the corrupted burden of proof process, to the proper status it has today. Unfortunately for Mr. Fish, he suffered the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune through no intention of his own. He merely acted to protect himself against a violent attack in the wilderness.

Let's cut the crap here and now and talk macro economics and debt. I'm going to go back to this chart again: This shows total non-government debt going from 150% of GDP (approximately) in 1981 to 350% of GDP (approximately) last year. In 1981 GDP was $3.128 trillion, so the total amount of debt in the system (non-government again) was approximately $4.5 trillion. In the last year GDP was $14.264 trillion, so total debt in the system was approximately $50 trillion. This is an increase in the outstanding (not taken and paid-off) debt of roughly $45 trillion dollars.  Read Full Story

Great followup to: Kucinich: The Federal Reserve Is Paying Banks NOT to Make Loans. The sound money set remains concerned that the Federal Reserve’s emergency actions to corral collapse could ignite hyperinflation. In particular, they point to the explosion of excess reserves inside the banking system, which they call dry tinder just waiting for the spark of recovery. Bill Dudley, president of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, says this isn’t an issue because the Fed now pays interest on excess reserves.

Goldman’s real estate gambit
07/28.09  •  Reuters 
s history repeating itself at Goldman Sachs? In late 2006, Goldman shrewdly began backing away from the residential mortgage market. With little fanfare, the firm began aggressively hedging its exposure to home loans, in particular mortgages to borrowers with shaky credit histories. This savvy and somewhat stealthy strategy enabled Goldman to pawn off lots of its soon-to-be toxic mortgages and mortgage-backed securities on other institutions " forcing those foolhardy speculators to pay the price when the subprime market blew up. And much to everyone else’s chagrin, Goldman even made money off the housing meltdown when some of its hedges " specifically a bet that a subprime mortgage index would plunge " paid off handsomely.  Read Full Story
