Uncle Sam is goosing the bond market just like he is the stock market. Take a look at Treasury's latest bit of chicanery which was stuffed in the back pages of the Wall Street Journal back in June: "The sudden increase in demand by foreign buyers for Treasurys, hailed as proof that the world's central banks are still willing to help absorb the avalanche of supply, mightn't be all that it seems. When the government sells bonds, traders typically look at a group of buyers called indirect bidders, which includes foreign central banks, to divine overseas demand for U.S. debt. That demand has been rising recently, giving comfort to investors that foreign buyers will continue to finance the U.S.'s budget deficit. But in a little-noticed switch on June 1, the Treasury changed the way it accounts for indirect bids, putting more buyers under that umbrella and boosting the portion of recent Treasury sales that the market perceived were being bought by foreigners."

In his trip to Africa, President Barack Hussein Obama has to lie on U.S. foreign aid so that Africans will love him more than they adore President George W. Bush.
We cannot afford a jobless recovery. Job stagnation is a recipe for all sorts of bad things at the local, state and national levels. Local and state governments continue to be hit hard by falling tax revenues, and decreased funding and will have to continue cost cutting in order to stay alive. ( I guess that means cut funding to the already lacking schools, and release state prisoners early). The federal government on the other hand in my opinion will never cut cost. They must continue to spend unprecedented amounts of money to keep the 20,000 corporate lobbyists happy. The Fed announcement - that the US added virtually no jobs in the private sector over a 10-year period - is basically an admission of their p***-poor monetary and policy blunders that’s been going on for decades. Many in congress remain completely clueless however; they still continue to be full of themselves. They claim they have all the answers to our problems. I only hope the voting public wakes up and vote them al

So, is there a reasonable case for peaceful secession? Is separation a reasonable means an end, whereas that end is; the revival of freedom; a firm rejection of a tyrannical, corrupt and complex Federal system; a return to the founding principles and Constitution; and revival of the world’s most prosperous nation? Be prepared for a fight. Simply opposing Washington on health care reform has stirred the ire of the elite political class. Americans exercising their freedom of speech and right to assemble, the most fundamental of American traditions, are being demonized. They are accused of false protest and berated as puppets of the political right.
Now, the country's top law enforcement official says there are too many people in prison. Yet, in his 3000 word speech to the American Bar Association in Chicago on Monday, Holder never said a word about the overwhelmingly large disparity that exists between the percentages of crime committed by blacks, when compared to whites. Did the first African-American Attorney General feel too embarrassed to mention the fact that blacks, who represent about 12 percent of the population, commit about 40 percent of the crime?
A new CNN poll shows that more Americans consider the first six months of President Barack Obama’s administration worse than the same time period of his predecessor, former President George Bush. When asked whether they thought the first six months of Obama’s tenure in office has been a success or a failure, 37 percent responding to the poll released Friday said they believe it was a failure. After Bush’s first six months in office, a similar CNN poll from August of 2001 showed only 32 percent considered it to be a failure.
What happens when the middle class feels even more victimized than the nation's poor? When American middle-class citizens feel that they are being steamrolled by a Changeopoly Blitzkrieg, engineered by the principalities and powers of overreaching government and corporate oligarchs? When the only answer they're given to their just concerns about unsustainable debt is "We won."? Well, those beleaguered middle-class folks might take a look at the tactics which have been working against them for four decades and decide to make use of some of those tactics themselves. Middle-class Americans, myself among them, have watched for 40 years, as one angry group after another has managed to get its way, and more and more entitlements from our purses to theirs, using the tactics designed by the liberal fascist revolutionary, Saul Alinsky.
There can longer be any doubt, the White House and their army of cult followers are publicly censoring the news and restricting free speech. People in opposition to Obama’s policies are now being beaten up in the streets everywhere and the White House has unleashed tattle tale squads to flag and report dissenters. We have now been directly censored. Even we are shocked. It’s just like what Obama did with Odinga in Kenya– my God, these people are for real. Again, we are under attack right now. Within the next hour, we’ll have a video and story up, so watch this space. The enemy is moving against everyone, not just us. It’s like 1918 in Russia, or the takeover in China by Mao or the rise of Hitler. I’m working feverishly with my team. We’ll have details for you within the next 2 hours. Please stand by to get this info out to everyone you know This is a Red Alert!
Remember when he was campaigning he LIED and said he would renegotiate NAFTA. Watch while BO sells out Americans for the new world order! NAFTA gave Americans the SHAFTA! Whose side are these Dirty Democrats on? If it were FAIR free trade that would be one thing but the trade agreements have been anything but FAIR to Americans (very good for lining our filthy politicians pockets though) now the story! "The president insisted that whatever 'Buy American' provisions were put into the stimulus bill be consistent with our international obligations," Michael Froman, deputy national security adviser for international economic affairs, told reporters on Thursday. He said the U.S. was in talks with Canada and other trading partners about how to "implement the 'Buy American' provision in a way consistent with the law, consistent with our international obligations, while minimizing disruption to trade."
Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) said Thursday that President Barack Obama deserves a failing grade for his first 200 days in office.
The libertarian-minded Republican ultimately graded the president at a just-passing “D” when asked to rate Obama’s performance during an interview on CNN’s “American Morning,” though only because he decided to factor in extenuating circumstances.
“I’d probably give them a D. He deserves an F, but I give him a D to make one point is that he's not responsible for this mess,” Paul said.
“The last administration has a lot to do with this. The Congress has a lot to do with it,” the former presidential candidate added. “So I would say he’s failing, but he doesn’t deserve all of the blame.”
Paul was appearing on CNN with his son, Rand, who recently announced that he is running for Kentucky’s Republican nomination for the United States Senate.

ENSLAVING YOUR CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN... U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner formally requested that Congress raise the $12.1 trillion statutory debt limit on Friday, saying that it could be breached as early as mid-October. “It is critically important that Congress act before the limit is reached so that citizens and investors here and around the world can remain confident that the United States will always meet its obligations,” Geithner said in a letter to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid that was obtained by Reuters.
The White House struck back hard on Friday against conservative pundits and town hall protesters who have compared the President to Hitler and his policies to Nazism, saying that the critics are “on thin ice” and should “take that temperature down a bit.”
Asked about the breakout of boisterous and occasionally violent protests at Democratic town hall events throughout the country, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs declared that the demonstrators were showing less civility and manners than his six-year-old child.
“Behave yourselves like your mom would probably tell you to do,” Gibbs said when asked what piece of advice he would give to the demonstrators.
But it wasn’t all fun and games for the Obama spokesman. Pressed on the analogies between Obama and Hitler that conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh made during Thursday’s program, Gibbs’ voice turned stern.
“I know the president feels strongly that we can discuss these issue
It doesn't seem fair, does it? The government saved Wall Street by backing troubled financial institutions with trillions of loans, investments and guarantees. It took a modest, non-usurious fee in buying the preferred stock of several troubled financial institutions and took warrants for common stock in them as well. This saved the banks so they could return to business as usual and get back to the business of overcompensating many of their employees who brought us to the precipice of disaster. Thanks to New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo--not Congress, not the White House--we have learned that Merrill Lynch, now a part of Bank of America ( BAC - news - people ), and Citigroup ( C - news - people ), a zombie still propped up by the government, both lost more than $27 billion in 2008, but paid $9 billion in executive bonuses last year. Goldman Sachs ( GS - news - people ), Morgan Stanley ( MS - news - people ) and JPMorgan Chase ( JPM - news - people ) each paid bonuses larger
Showing once again that he is no statesman--let alone President of the United States----Dictator-in-Chief Obama told his Union thugs to “get out there” and fight back against any and all US citizens who oppose both him and his programs. So, at Town Hall meetings in both Tampa, FL and St. Louis, MO they did. In Tampa, Randy Arthur was shoved up against a wall by purported SEIU thugs resulting in Arthur suffering chest injuries and a ripped shirt. At the same meeting, a Democrat Party official--Karen Miracle--was photographed assaulting Barry Osteen who had disagreed with Miracle’s husband on ObamaCare
Senior citizens who went to a meeting sponsored by AARP were left to themselves after the AARP hostess walked out. The seniors were trying to get answers concerning ObamaCare and why AARP would support a government controlled health system that many believe would lead to euthanasia and rationing of health care.
On Aug. 4, President Barack Obama celebrated the anniversary of his birth, an event that occurred 48 years ago in the state of Hawaii. This is an indisputable fact, as sane critics on the right, such as the editors of the National Review and the veteran pundit Patrick Buchanan, acknowledge. And yet there is a significant minority, especially within the Republican Party, that fervently insists otherwise.
An organization supported by Obama, Biden and 190 members of Congress, Health Care for America Now, instructs Democrats to confiscate signs and leaflets brought to Obamacare events by “rightwing extremists,” that is to say Americans opposed to totalitarian health care.
The effort to discredit and shut down opposition to Obamacare has gone from Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid holding up artificial turf and House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi calling opponents Nazis to violence. During a demonstration Thursday evening outside a forum on aging called by U.S. Rep. Russ Carnahan, D-St. Louis, in Mehville, Missouri, a patriot was viciously attacked by union thugs.
“If you get hit, we will punch back twice as hard,” Messina said, according to an official who attended the meeting.
The hourlong session was the last opportunity for Democratic leaders and the White House to prepare senators for what will be a crucial month in shaping public opinion on health care. With no final legislation to promote, senators have expressed concern about dealing with questions and criticisms about the almost $1 trillion overhaul. The spate of confrontational town hall meetings have raised the stakes.
The Carlyle Group occupies two slots on the National Council on Energy Policy, writes the PEU Report. Their two members are: Robert E.

At last, I said, here’s somebody who can get us out of this mess. (Campbell, Susan Bartoletti. Hitler Youth: Growing Up in Hitler’s Shadow. New York: Scholastic, Inc. 2005, Pg. 19. ) He was so convincing on the speaker’s platform and appeared to be so sincere in what he said that the majority of his listeners were ready to believe almost anything good about him because they wanted to believe it. As time went on, it became clear that he thought of himself as the Messiah. He was the greatest orator Germany had ever known. Most amazing of all: he did it without a teleprompter. The comparisons between Hitler and Obama, while offensive to many, were inevitable. They both had the benefit of oratory skills and could deliver a stirring speech with minimal substance. They pitched

Why does President Obama want to implement all at once radical changes in American foreign policy, environmental policy, education, health care and the tax code? The answer is easy: If he does not achieve these initiatives soon, he never will. Almost none of Obama's proposed policies any longer enjoy majority support among voters -- and many of them were not clearly outlined to voters during the campaign. Current polls show more Americans are against than in favor of his version of health-care reform. Nearly seven in 10 are wary of government takeovers of the economy, like the bank and car bailouts. Over half do not want more borrowing and higher deficits.
US President Barack Obama’s approval rating has slumped to 50 percent, the lowest since his inauguration, according to a poll released Thursday on the eve of his 200th day in office.
