China is evil. Act of war?

The Communist Chinese military has constantly been upgrading (largely by tech theft) expecting a future confrontation with the USA. Until that day the ChiComs have reached out its economic tentacles to coax moron relatively free economic nations (Capitalist yet largely governed by Globalist Socialist Democratic-style political parties [i.e. closet Communists]) to be invested by the Communist managed economy of the Chinese government.

 

THIS IS WHY many governments in Europe and Australia are supporting the ChiCom line on Coronavirus/COVID-19 not coming from a Wuhan biolab. They fear the economic repercussions more than the future despotism the Chinese Communist promises globally.

 

Regardless of the treasonous defense by the Dems and their Mainstream Media propaganda machine, more and more Intel points to a ChiCom Biolab accident and the intentional spread of COVID-19 likely that the entire world suffers the same economic setback the virus caused internally in China.

 

American Dems (actually Marxists these days) and Globalists are locked into embracing Chinese Communist economics and join the duped free world demanding the public believe ChiCom lies. Even to the point when joint intel of foreign nations (Five-Eyes Intel – SEE ALSO: Five Eyes, Nine Eyes, 14 Eyes – Explained; By Sven Taylor; Restore Privacy; 2/5/20)  points to an intentional ChiCom coverup. Surely such a coverup is an act of war when Americans die from Chinese intentions.

 

As you can tell from the embedded links in the above paragraph in parentheses, those that follow privacy concerns are not fans of Five-Eyes Intel. For me it is a good reason to believe the Five-Eyes Intel spying on China. If don’t wish the Five-Eyes details above, here is a concise 1:18 video:

Aside from the privacy issues you should indeed be concerned about if warrantless monitoring is involved of individuals, the monitoring of foreign enemy cyber-activity is explored in this article:

 

Five Eyes Intelligence Chiefs Point The Finger; Cyber Security Intelligence; Uploaded on 2019-05-07

 

Excerpt:

 

Western countries are naming cyber-attacks by other countries. One of the ideas behind naming and shaming is to discourage cyber-attacks and to encourage potential victims into improve their cyber security strategy and tactics, according to 5Eyes Intel leaders.

 

Intelligence experts from the Five Eyes Intel group, which is the UK, the USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, spoke at CYBERUK 19, the National Cyber Security Centre’s (NCSC) cybersecurity conference in Glasgow, in an unusual public discussion.

 

Recently the Five Eyes have accused some countries of cyber-attacks, such as North Korea and Russia of NotPetya. They group have also accused the Iranian and Chinese governments of hacking.

 

“There’s a small set of nations who are not behaving within international norms,” said Rob Joyce, senior cybersecurity advisor for the USA’s National Security Agency.

 

“If you look at the countries that have blatantly come out and attacked other countries in cyberspace, countries who are stealing wealth to avoid sanctions, literally bank-robbing in the cyber realm, it’s a small group, you can name them on one hand,” he said.

 

READ THE REST

 

If you use Left-Wing Google, you will have no difficulty in finding posts discrediting the recent Five-Eyes Intel document leaked to Australia media. (BTW you can include the Australian government trying to poke wholes in the document and they are a part of Five-Eyes). You should really compare the pro-ChiCom governments/MSM poking wholes to those refusing to submit to Communist despotism highlighting the Five-Eyes revelations.

 

I have series of short videos summarizing the Five-Eyes findings. For more detail here are some early May posts from sources:

 

 

 

 

As I was preparing to post this on 5/4, distractions interrupted that process. As a result I am adding some articles to the videos I found that confirm my thoughts that there is a war looming with Communist China. OR Donald Trump would be wise to bury the ChiComs with our own military buildup as Reagan did to Soviet Russia AS WELL AS prohibit all American business, academic and science operations with China. The prohibition might sting the U.S. economically at first but will prove an insurmountable obstacle to the Commies in China. It might even lead to a Soviet-style collapse of a Communist government in China.

A global coalition of intelligence agencies has found China “destroyed or suppressed” evidence of the deadly coronavirus outbreak as it ramps up a probe into the communist nation.

 

The intelligence dossier, compiled by ally Western Governments, was obtained by Sky News host Sharri Markson who has revealed the genetic coding of COVID-19 is nearly identical to a strain of virus found in the infamous Wuhan lab.

 

The dossier cites the scientists’ work discovering samples of coronavirus from a bat cave in China and describes how the scientists researched synthesising a bat-derived coronavirus that could not be treated.

 

The document lays the foundation for accusing China of a cover-up, stating it deliberately engaged in the “suppression and destruction of evidence”.

Could the Chinese coronavirus be part of their plans to become the world’s next superpower?

 

China President Xi strolling center

 

By Jean Patrick Grumberg

May 4, 2020

Geller Report

 

This is from the New York Post:

 

US officials believe China deliberately downplayed the country’s coronavirus outbreak in order to stock up on medical supplies needed to fight the illness, intelligence documents show.

 

In early January, Chinese leaders “intentionally concealed the severity” of the pandemic from the world, according to a four-page Department of Homeland Security intelligence report obtained by the Associated Press.

 

The analysis also says that for much of January China delayed reporting the coronavirus “was a contagion” to the World Health Organization so they could import personal protective equipment.

 

The report, which is dated May 1 and marked “for official use only,” said China increased imports and decreased exports of medical supplies while downplaying the growing crisis.

 

The report’s conclusions were based on the 95 percent probability that China’s changes in imports and export behavior were not within normal range.

 

There is no public evidence to suggest that China deliberately withheld information for the purpose of hoarding the world’s medical supplies.

 

I do not totally agree. Not that is not true, but it only reflects part of the story.

 

I believe that China had a bigger reason to hide the severity of the CCP virus.

 

  • Avoid humiliation is one. Hide their incompetence is another. And preserve their image of a very sophisticated and technologically advance country too.

 

  • Another big reason lies in their DNA: Communism. Not a single human being would accept to live in a communist regime if he had the choice between freedom and totalitarism. How do you get a population to stay under a tyrannic regime? Fear, terror, violence and propaganda.

 

Now it happens that China’s “Belt and Road Initiative” is their code name to dominate the world. And it’s based on a simple plan: Debt-trap diplomacy.

 

Debt-trap diplomacy is a very old and vicious concept. As vicious as Marxism.

It’s a strategy used by China to lure or trap developing, underdeveloped, and economically fragile countries like poor Asian neighbors, Africa, and weak European countries like Italy, Greece and Poland, to borrow more money than what they can repay to be used for much needed infrastructure projects they cannot afford. And when they cannot honor their debt obligations as China planned it, then China takes over assets, including strategic infrastructures and extract political concessions from the debtor countries.

 

Now look at the situation from the coronavirus angle.

 

  • It must be a coincidence that countries have just been economically devastated by the Chinese coronavirus.

 

  • And it’s a coincidence that economically devastated countries need help, and cash.

 

  • And China happens to have a ready-made program for them, the “Belt and Road Initiative”.

 

Let me put it this way:

 

If I were China, and I wanted to accelerate my grip on the world, I would have spread the coronavirus so that the economies of the weakest would collapse, and I would be right there at the right time to offer them my “help”.

 

But again, it’s a coincidence.

China Warns Of Possible Armed Conflict With US Over Coronavirus Backlash

 

By Tyler Durden

05/05/2020 – 05:12

ZeroHedge

 

An internal report presented to Chinese President Xi Jinping and other top leaders concludes that global anti-China sentiment is at a level not seen since the 1989 Tiananmen Square crackdown, and recommends preparing for a worst-case scenario of armed conflict with the United States, according to Reuters, citing people familiar with the content of the document.

 

Xi Jinping masked-center

 

The report, created by the China Institutes of Contemporary Internal Relations (CICIR) – which is affiliated with the Ministry of State Security – suggests that the wave of anti-China sentiment is led by the United States, which sees China’s rise as a global superpower as a threat to Western democracies.

 

One of those with knowledge of the report said it was regarded by some in the Chinese intelligence community as China’s version of the “Novikov Telegram”, a 1946 dispatch by the Soviet ambassador to Washington, Nikolai Novikov, that stressed the dangers of U.S. economic and military ambition in the wake of World War Two.

 

Novikov’s missive was a response to U.S. diplomat George Kennan’s “Long Telegram” from Moscow that said the Soviet Union did not see the possibility for peaceful coexistence with the West, and that containment was the best long-term strategy.Reuters

 

Reuters, which hasn’t seen the paper, couldn’t determine to what extent the report’s grim outlook reflects positions held by China’s state leaders, nor how much it might influence policy. That said, it suggests Beijing is taking the threat of global backlash over the coronavirus pandemic – which Western intelligence agencies suspect originated at a Wuhan biolab which was experimenting with bat coronavirus, and had previous concerns raised over the pandemic potential of such research.

 

China’s early coverup of the outbreak – including silencing and/or disappearing whistleblowing doctors and journalists, lying about the transmissibility of the virus while hoarding personal protective equipment (PPE), quarantining Wuhan domestically while allowing international travel, and using the World Health Organization to run cover – has drawn global scorn as COVID has infected over 3.5 million and killed nearly 250,000 in five months.

 

Deaths by COVID last updated 5/4/20

 

Chinese officials had a “special responsibility” to inform their people and the world of the threat posed by the coronavirus “since they were the first to learn of it,” U.S. State Department spokeswoman Morgan Ortagus said in response to questions from Reuters.

 

Without directly addressing the assessment made in the Chinese report, Ortagus added: “Beijing’s efforts to silence scientists, journalists, and citizens and spread disinformation exacerbated the dangers of this health crisis.Reuters

 

President Trump in recent days has been ratcheting up criticism of Beijing, while threatening new tariffs on China. His administration has been considering retaliatory measures over the outbreak, according to the report – which warns that anti-China sentiment could also threaten their Belt and Road infrastructure initiatives, and that Washington could take advantage by offering financial and military support for regional allies, which would in turn make the security situation in Asia more volatile.

 

On Monday, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said that President Trump is reviewing options to penalize China, adding that he expects Beijing to meet their obligations under the phase one trade deal.

 

Donald Trump – Steven Mnuchin

 

I have every reason to expect that they honor this agreement, and if they don’t, there would be very significant consequences in the relationship and in the global economy as to how people would do business with them,” said Mnuchin.

 

As Reuters notes, China’s Xi has shaped the country’s military into a fighting force equipped to win modern wars – expanding air and naval capabilities and reach in a challenge to over 70 years of US dominance in Asia.

 

ChiCom Sailors

 

China’s foreign ministry is now calling for peace and cooperation, saying “the sound and steady development of China-U.S. relations” are in the best interests of both countries and the international community, and that “any words or actions that engage in political manipulation or stigmatization under the pretext of the pandemic, including taking the opportunity to sow discord between countries, are not conducive to international cooperation against the pandemic.

 

Trump, meanwhile, announced that he will cut off funding for the World Health Organization (WHO) for being “very China-centric.”

 

And while the world focuses on China’s response to the virus, Australia – where two scientists from the Wuhan Institute of Virology conducted coronavirus experiments overseas – has called for an international investigation into the origins and spread of COVID-19, while the so-called ‘five eyes’ Western intelligence agencies explore whether coronavirus escaped from the Wuhan lab – while operating under the assumption that it’s a non-modified virus of natural origin.

Here Are The Key Findings From The Bombshell Government Dossier On China’s Bat Virus Program

 

By Tyler Durden

05/03/2020 – 10:15

ZeroHedge

 

A leaked dossier compiled by Western intelligence agencies concludes that China lied and deliberately suppressed or destroyed evidence during the crucial early days of the COVID-19 outbreak, and notes that Chinese researchers have been experimenting with – and creating – deadly bat coronaviruses.

 

Wuhan Institute of Virology

 

Here are key findings from the 15-page report compiled by Western governments known as the ‘Five Eyes,’ according to Australia’s Daily Telegraph.

 

The great coverup

 

A key theme of the dossier is that China’s negligence and lies resulted in the “endangerment of other countries,” as the CCP silenced or ‘disappeared’ doctors who spoke out.

 

Doctors who bravely spoke out about the new virus were detained and condemned. Their detentions were splashed across the Chinese-state media with a call from Wuhan Police for “all citizens to not fabricate rumours, not spread rumours, not believe rumours.”

 

A tweet from the Global Times on January 2 states: “Police in Central China’s Wuhan arrested 8 people spreading rumours about local outbreak of unidentifiable #pneumonia. Previous online posts said it was SARS.” This had the intended effect of silencing other doctors who may have been inclined to speak out. –Daily Telegraph

 

Furthermore, evidence was destroyed, and China refused to provide live samples to international scientists working on a vaccine.

 

The paper obtained by The Saturday Telegraph speaks about “the suppression and destruction of evidence” and points to “virus samples ordered destroyed at genomics labs, wildlife market stalls bleached, the genome sequence not shared publicly, the Shanghai lab closure for ‘rectification’, academic articles subjected to prior review by the Ministry of Science and Technology and data on asymptomatic ‘silent carriers’ kept secret”. –Daily Telegraph

 

China’s deadly denials

 

The dossier slams China’s constant lies about the virus, noting that “Despite evidence of human-human transmission from early December, PRC authorities deny it until January 20,” adding “The World Health Organisation does the same. Yet officials in Taiwan raised concerns as early as December 31, as did experts in Hong Kong on January 4.”

 

China also imposed internal travel bans while condemning the rest of the world for wanting to do the same.

 

“Millions of people leave Wuhan after the outbreak and before Beijing locks down the city on January 23,” reads the dossier. “Thousands fly overseas. Throughout February, Beijing presses the US, Italy, India, Australia, Southeast Asian neighbours and others not to protect themselves via travel restrictions, even as the PRC imposes severe restrictions at home.”

 

The dossier also notes that China successfully pressured the EU to strike language about PRC disinformation, and has threatened Australia for continuing to investigate.

 

“As Australia calls for an independent inquiry into the pandemic, PRC threatens to cut off trade with Australia. PRC has likewise responded furiously to US calls for transparency.”

 

Engineered?

 

While the leaked dossier does not reach a conclusion whether COVID-19 is of natural origin or engineered, it includes a February 6 study from the South China University of Technology which suggested “the killer coronavirus probably originated from a laboratory in Wuhan.

 

The paper was withdrawn due to what its lead author said was a lack of direct evidence, however the dossier notes that scholar Yanzhong Huang said on March 5 “No scientists have confirmed or refuted the paper’s findings.”

 

That said, the Telegraph notes that the official US position is that the virus was not engineered, but that it escaped from either the Wuhan Institute of Virology or the Chinese CDC, which is located roughly 900 feet from the Wuhan wet market from which a cluster of early cases emerged.

 

A Senior Intelligence Source tells me there is agreement among most of the 17 Intelligence agencies that COVID-19 originated in the Wuhan lab. The source stressed that the release is believed to be a MISTAKE, and was not intentional.

— John Roberts (@johnrobertsFox) May 2, 2020

 

“The Intelligence Community also concurs with the wide scientific consensus that the COVID-19 virus was not man-made or genetically modified,” said acting Director of National Intelligence, Richard Grenell, adding “The IC will continue to rigorously examine emerging information and intelligence to determine whether the outbreak began through contact with infected animals or if it was the result of an accident at a laboratory in Wuhan.”

 

China’s ‘risky bat research’ and creation of deadly viruses

 

While the international scientific consensus is that COVID-19 wasn’t manmade, the Western intelligence dossier highlights research by scientists Shi Zhengli and her protégé Peng Zhou, whose work on bat coronavirus Zero Hedge highlighted in January, and who were modifying bat coronavirus to test its transmissibility to other species.

 

Shi Zhengli, director of the Centre for Emerging Infectious Diseases at the Chinese Academy of Sciences’ Wuhan Institute of Virology, who working in Australia in 2006.

 

It notes a 2013 study conducted by a team of researchers, including Dr Shi, who collected a sample of horseshoe bat faeces from a cave in Yunnan province, China, which was later found to contain a virus 96.2 per cent identical to SARS-CoV-2, the virus that caused COVID-19.

 

The research dossier also references work done by the team to synthesise SARS-like coronaviruses, to analyse whether they could be transmissible from bats to mammals. This means they were altering parts of the virus to test whether it was transmissible to different species. –Daily Telegraph

 

A November 2015 study from Zhengli and her team in conjunction with the University of North Carolina concluded that the SARS-like coronavirus could jump directly from bats to humans, and there is currently no cure or treatment.

 

The Western dossier notes from the study: “To examine the emergence potential (that is, the potential to infect humans) of circulating bat CoVs, we built a chimeric virus encoding a novel, zoonotic CoV spike protein — from the RsSHCO14-CoV sequence that was isolated from Chinese horseshoe bats — in the context of the SARS-CoV mouse-adapted backbone.”

 

“This virus is highly pathogenic and treatments developed against the original SARS virus in 2002 and the ZMapp drugs used to fight ebola fail to neutralise and control this particular virus,” said North Carolina University Professor Ralph Baric, a co-author on the 2015 paper.

 

A few years later, in March 2019, Dr Shi and her team, including Peng Zhou, who worked in Australia for five years, published a review ­titled Bat Coronaviruses in China in the medical journal Viruses, where they wrote that they “aim to predict virus hot spots and their cross-species transmission potential”, describing it as a matter of “urgency to study bat corona­viruses in China to understand their potential of causing another outbreak. Their review stated: “It is highly likely that future SARS or MERS like coronavirus outbreaks will originate from bats, and there is an increased probability that this will occur in China.”

 

The report notes that Dr. Shi’s research continues to this day, telling Scientific American “Bat-borne coronaviruses will cause more outbreaks … We must find them before they find us.”

 

Zhengli and Zhou’s Australian research

 

Both Shi and Zhou spent three years at Australia’s Animal Health Laboratory – operated by the country’s national science agency CSIRO. Between 2011 and 2014, Zhou arranged for wild bats to be caught and transported alive from Queensland to the lab in Victoria, where they were euthanized, dissected and studied for deadly viruses.

 

While the United States has since cut all funding to the Wuhan Institute of Virology, CSIRO refused to acknowledge questions over whether it was still collaborating with lab.

 

Wuhan lab worker who disappeared…

 

The Telegraph notes the case of Huang Yan Ling, a researcher at the Wuhan Institute of Virology who is rumored to be “patient zero” after having been the first to be diagnosed with the disease.

 

Then came her reported disappearance, with her biography and image deleted from the Wuhan Institute of Virology’s website.

 

On February 16 the institute denied she was ­patient zero and said she was alive and well, but there has been no proof of life since then, fanning speculation. –Daily Telegraph

 

Key dates in the coverup:

 

November 9, 2015: Wuhan Institute of Virology publish a study revealing they created a new virus in the lab from SARS-CoV.

 

December 6, 2019: Five days after a man linked to Wuhan’s seafood market presented pneumonia-like symptoms, his wife contracts it, suggesting human to human transmission.

 

December 27: China’s health authorities told a novel disease, then affecting some 180 patients, was caused by a new coronavirus.

 

December 26-30: Evidence of new virus emerges from Wuhan patient data.

 

December 31: Chinese internet authorities begin censoring terms from social media such as Wuhan Unknown Pneumonia.

 

January 1, 2020: Eight Wuhan doctors who warned about new virus are detained and condemned.

 

January 3: China’s top health authority issues a gag order.

 

January 5: Wuhan Municipal Health Commission stops releasing daily updates on new cases. Continues until January 18.

 

January 10: PRC official Wang Guangfa says outbreak “under control” and mostly a “mild condition”.

 

January 12: Professor Zhang Yongzhen’s lab in Shanghai is closed by authorities for “rectification”, one day after it shares genomic sequence data with the world for the first time.

 

January 14: PRC National Health Commission chief Ma Xiaowei privately warns colleagues the virus is likely to develop into a major public health event.

 

January 24: Officials in Beijing prevent the Wuhan Institute of Virology from sharing sample isolates with the University of Texas.

 

February 6: China’s internet watchdog tightens controls on social media platforms.

 

February 9: Citizen-journalist and local businessman Fang Bin disappears.

 

April 17: Wuhan belatedly raises its official fatalities by 1290.

CCP Launched The Virus Because They Are Dying, Had No Choice If To Remain In Power

NWO REPORT

 

Mother’s Crusade

 

I find it humorous the coordinated, across-the-board narrative being spun by the media who are gleefully accepting and promoting the new ‘consensus’ that the Chinese coronavirus was from an ‘accident’ at the Wuhan lab and ‘not genetically modified’ and ‘not intentionally released’. I’ve heard this from so many media sources in the exact same phraseology recently it makes me laugh. They really do think we are dumb. Brett Baier says it every chance he gets.

 

Sure, the virus was not ‘intentionally released’ right before the 2020 presidential election, and not ‘intentionally released’ right after the failed Russia hoax and failed impeachment sham. It was not ‘intentionally released’ a couple weeks after Bill Gates’ Event 201 which war-gamed a global coronavirus pandemic. If you believe that, I’ve got some oceanfront property in Wuhan to sell you.

 

There are a couple possible reasons for this cuckery I suppose. The first is, Donald Trump knows full well what the virus is — a bioweapon and an act of war, but if he confirms this to the American public, we are in WWIII. No one wants this and I can understand this decision. However, the Chinese Communist Party MUST face consequences…and must be pushed from power, for the good of the world.

 

The other possibility is the CCP is pushing this narrative into their bought-and-paid-for American media enablers and their paid-for members of the Democratic Party. China doesn’t want the truth to come out. That much is obvious. They are slow-walking the information out, trying to contain the damage.

 

The real truth probably contains a little of both of the above.

 

The Chinese Communist Party is dying. The process started when Donald J. Trump was elected President of the United States of America, and the globalist (meaning communist) agenda began to die.

 

All of this is crystal clear. China engineered the ‘free trade’ mantra for the last three decades, gained entry into the WTO during the compliant Bush 43 presidency, and simply bought American companies and their technology with the fantasy of having access to the ‘Chinese market’. A billion people! Of course, they wanted in. As the charade played out, they dumped products on American soil and starved American manufacturing. It was a snowball effect that ended up with the U.S. not being able to make anything, including its own medicine.

 

Trump is a clear and present danger to the model. And, they know it. This is why they want him gone. This is why the Chinese-controlled American media is pushing Beijing’s narrative. I mean really, socialist is just communist lite. And liberals love nothing but socialism and the totalitarianism it eventually brings. Just look at Democratic governors and their ‘lockdowns’ to see obvious evidence of this.

 

But, America and the West have become ‘woke’ to China’s diabolical treachery.

 

China builds massive cities already that are uninhabited just to keep the population working. The Trump tariffs looked to put so much pressure on this failed model that the CCP leadership knew civil unrest was soon to follow.

 

They simply could not let this happen…hence the pandemic, and the American lockdowns promoted by their media lackeys.

 

No one wants a war. However, it may come to that, and America needs to face this reality, just as we had to be pulled kicking and screaming into WWIII to face the evil of Nazi Germany.

 

The Chinese Communist Party is no less evil. They have over one million of their own citizens in concentration camps. They slice open political prisoners alive to harvest their organs. They welded their own citizen’s doors shut in Wuhan and starved them to death. They infected the world intentionally with the virus. They are blackmailing the world with medical supplies.

 

Yes, the virus was released intentionally. Yes, it is genetically modified. It is not found in nature. Yes, our intelligence agencies know this.

 

And yes, Chinese Communist Party rule is dying. The problem is, it will not go quietly, and we should expect more pain inflicted upon the world as it is forced from power.

 

That is why they shut down our economy. The want us weak, so they can make their move, like an evil dragon backed into a corner.

Dreams of Prosperity and an Inflated Currency


I actually comprehend little when it comes to economics and numbers. But history is easier to grasp. History informs us a Capitalist based Market System has enabled a Liberty-minded America to prosper more than the fail. While oppositely a Socialist based Government Managed System robs Liberty from citizens stifling individual prosperity and increasing government despotism and oppression.

 

Though I have difficulty grasping the actual effects of a repo (buyback) stocks market on the economy I grasp well that an unrestrained Federal Reserve with near zero checks and balances adds to government despotism and decreases Liberty and Freedom of America’s individual citizens. And so … here are Justin Smith’s thoughts on American Markets and the actions of the Federal Reserve.

Dreams of Prosperity and an Inflated Currency

Congressional Warning Bells Are Silent

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent  10/8/2019 10:42 PM

 

Long before we wake up from our dream of prosperity through an inflated currency, our gold, which alone could have kept us from catastrophe, will have vanished and no rate of interest will tempt it to return.” U.S. Senator Elihu Root (R-NY) 1913

 

The Federal Reserve Bank has been a bone of contention, since our nation’s founding. This rogue agency has proven itself to be the evil entity that many early American leaders believed it to be, but not one word on the Fed was forthcoming, when Congresswoman Maxine Waters announced the schedule of the House Financial Services Committee on October 3rd, after the Federal Reserve Bank started transferring billions of dollars into the Repurchasing Market on September 17th. This activated its proposal to hand seventy-five billion dollars a day to unnamed banks on Wall Street, until November 4th, the first such intervention since the 2008 economic collapse and the bailout of financial organizations deemed “too big to fail”; and, it is just one more criminal act in a long line of abuses committed against all America.

 

In 2011, James Felkerson wrote in an academic piece, that from 2007 to 2010, the Fed had funneled an unbelievable $29 trillion in revolving loans to Wall Street and global banks. It did this without any apparent realization and authority from Congress, even though by law both the House Financial Services and the Senate Banking Committees are to be briefed on any such emergency loans, including the names of those banks taking the loans.

 

[Blog Editor: I am not an economist. In trying to make sense of the repo market and reverse-repo market the information muddied rather than bring clarity to my understanding. Since it is my mantra that Dems lie and deceive I become skeptical when the likes of Dem candidates for President (e.g. Elizabeth Warren & Bernie Sanders among others) begin to rail against the buyback repo markets. I’ll start with an explanation of repo markets then add some criticism titles for you to look noting who the critics are:

 

 

 

 

 

 

Like I said, I am no economist. BUT the tax issue seems less about taxpayers funds and more about banks and corporations taking advantage of tax breaks to expand money returns which may or may not blow up DEPENDING on the security controls of the money-printing Federal Reserve. Not being an economist means my take could be entirely off basis.]

 

These Big Banks and corporations are taking this “free” taxpayer dollars and buying back stocks in their own companies, rather than risk investment in productive investments, which creates an illusion of economic growth. The purchases give companies the appearance of being more profitable than they actually are, even though their earnings have remained stagnant. And it is the Fed’s perverse incentives that have given rise to this debt-dependent speculative system that allows companies to pocket their profits, while at the same time, they socialize their losses and pass them along to the taxpayer, ‘We the People’.

 

In 1832, President Andrew Jackson, extremely antagonistic towards the Bank of the United States, stated: “Gentlemen! I too have been a close observer of the doings of the Bank of the United States. I have had men watching You for a long time, and am convinced that you have used the funds of the bank to speculate in the breadstuffs of the country. When you won, you divided the profits amongst you, and when you lost, you charged it to the bank. You tell me that if I take the deposits from the bank and annul its charter I shall ruin [a] thousand families. That may be true, gentlemen, but that is your sin! Should I let you go on, you will ruin fifty thousand families, and that would be my sin! You are a den of vipers and thieves. I have determined to rout you out, and by the Eternal, I will rout you out.” [Bold-Italics Blog Editor’s]

 

We are currently witnessing a continuation of the malinvestments that led to the 2008 economic collapse and massive loans combined with another huge expansion of credit. When banking institutes issue huge credit lines, any future economic collapse is proportional to that amount of outstanding credit.

 

This isn’t a true “boom economy” and the current boom is the culmination of monetary inflation and an expanded credit cycle, in the wake of the residential property and stock market booms, between 2005 and 2007, and malinvestments that have not yet been fully corrected. To date, this is by far a larger credit elevation than that of 1922-1929, and the Great Depression on the 20th century.

 

It seems as though everyone in America has bought into the promise of applied macroeconomics, refusing to acknowledge the contrary signals through the prism of classic economics, while they accept macroeconomist premises that economic truths on a micro-level are not applicable to the whole at the macro-level. This level of ignorance will soon prove to be a huge mistake, since nobody can live forever beyond their means and ability to repay amounts owed.

 

One should note that the JP Morgan Bank, one of the largest in the United States, was hit with three felony counts under the RICO Act last month, concerning the precious metals market. This is particularly alarming in light of JP Morgan’s $158 billion cash reduction in the Federal Reserve, between January and June of 2019, a fifty-seven percent decline this year.

 

Why hasn’t the need of the United States’ largest bank to acquire such a large loan over a six month period raised any warning bells in Congress? Why does JP Morgan need such a large loan if it has $1.6 trillion in deposits and a “fortress balance sheet”, as asserted by JP’s CEO, Jamie Dimon?

 

By the end of June 2019, America’s four largest banks had a combined $5.45 trillion in deposits: JP Morgan claimed $1.6 trillion; Bank of America claims $1.44 trillion; Wells Fargo posts $1.35 trillion, and Citibank holds a bit over $1 trillion.

 

So why the current panic at the Fed? If the liquidity doesn’t exist to allow these banks to issue billions in loans, when they supposedly hold $5.45 trillion, something very serious has occurred in the financial industry and another economic crisis looms on the horizon.

 

Recently, CNBC reported that U.S. manufacturing purchasing managers’ index was the lowest it’s been since June 2009, at 47.8 percent, and in recent days, many hundreds of Americans have been laid off from companies, such as Kroger and many others. Bayou Steel just laid off 376 workers, according to Market Realist; Daimler Trucks North America is laying off 450 people; WeWork is set to end five thousand jobs, one-third of its workforce; Hewlett Packard Inc is cutting approximately 8,000 positions, and lets not forget that Walmart was forced to close 63 locations last year.

 

This isn’t a “boom economy” anyway one looks at it, especially when we see Democrats and Republicans alike engaging in out-of-control deficit spending, as if the U.S. Treasury is their own personal piggy bank and there is no tomorrow. If this were truly such a golden period of economic recovery, our financiers wouldn’t be clamoring for interest rate cuts, when they are already at historically low levels.

 

America has seen this greed motivated reach for more and more before, as the borrowers seem not to have one care on how their loans will be repaid, and most of America cares not so long as they get their cut. It is this extreme callous character flaw and apathy and a complacency and the turning of a blind eye by corrupt Congressmen, a national immorality, that is allowing the Fed to once more bail out the worse white collar criminals on Wall Street, as they continue to take huge portions of bail out funds to reward themselves with tens of millions of dollars in bonuses and billions of dollars to lawyers to prevent them from being prosecuted for fraud.

 

It is an indication of America’s collective genius or its collective madness that permits Her people to hold so many contradictory assumptions, combined under the same economic system, and blindly and blithely proceed as if they were all joined by perfect cogent thought, logic and reason. And yet, many Americans cannot escape the nagging feeling that something is going extraordinarily wrong, as our best and brightest economic experts call madness “common sense”, denying that their deal with the devil doesn’t come at some terrible price eventually.

 

The impeccable and brilliant Senator Elihu Root strongly opposed the Federal Reserve Act in 1913, noting in a blistering and prescient manner that “the Federal Reserve … provides an expansive currency, not an elastic one”. He noted that the temptation to expand the currency would cause the Fed to create the very cycles it was supposed to prevent.

 

It is far past time to eradicate the Federal Reserve Bank and the economic sickness that accompanies centralized banking, wherever one finds it.

 

Whatever a man sows, so shall he reap. Need little, want less and love more.

WORLD WAR III…NOWHERE TO RUN


City after Apocalypse

Danny Jeffrey provides a convincing snapshot of the collapse of the world order as we know it today. I might be one of those that look for a silver lining in every moment of chaos. I just believe that good always triumphs over evil in God’s timing. I just pray the timing is shorter rather than longer.

The Romney Plan for America


Romney Believe in America

 

John R. Houk

© November 1, 2011

 

I am definitely not in former Governor Mitt Romney’s camp for the GOP nomination for President. I have to own-up to the primary reason for this is Romney is a Mormon and Mormonism is not Christianity yet pretends to be Christianity. As a Christian I have a problem with that. The secondary problem I have with Romney he appears pretty close to being a RINO. Full-on RINOs make no bones about their Liberal leanings. Then there is RINOs like Romney that is Conservative Republicans in some areas but is politically liberal or socially liberal in others.

 

On the other hand if Romney does win the GOP nomination I am definitely voting for him over President Barack Hussein Obama. At the very least Romney does not have an agenda to transform America into a socialistic nation dependent on government entitlements to move the economy and secretly enslave the poor by making the Federal government the poor’s source of livelihood.

 

Romney’s major campaign agenda is his 59 point plan to get America’s economy on track. Just like Rep. Michele Bachmann, the Romney plan has less to do with tax reform and more to do with traditional tax cuts and strategies for jobs growth international trade.

 

Romney’s answer is a 59-point plan, including 10 steps he vows to take his first day as president. “Each proposal is rooted in the conservative premise that government itself cannot create jobs. At best, government can provide a framework in which economic growth can occur. All too often, however, government gets in the way. The past three years of unparalleled government expansion have retaught that lesson all too well,” he wrote. The candidate didn’t go into deep detail about the 59 items on his jobs agenda, but he did offer a shout out to those starting their own companies: “Only the individual initiative of entrepreneurs, workers, investors and inventors enables companies, and our economy as a whole, to flourish.” (ELECTIONEERING; By J. Jennings Moss; Portfolio.com, 9-6-11)

 

With both Cain and Perry now offering dramatic pro-growth tax reform proposals, Romney will either jump on the tax reform bandwagon or be left in the dust (or possibly both).

 

The only pro-growth tax cuts in Romney’s 59-point economic plan are a reduction in the corporate income tax rate to 25% (from 35% today) and the elimination of the death tax.  However, both Perry and Cain are similarly calling for repeal of the death tax.  Also, Perry’s plan would cut the corporate income tax rate to 20%, and Cain’s plan would reduce it to the equivalent of 9%.

 

Romney is advocating eliminating taxes on interest, dividends, and capital gains, but only for people making less than $200,000 a year.  This “cap” would vitiate any benefit to economic growth.  Worse, this element of Romney’s plan implicitly validates Obama’s “class warfare” rhetoric. (Fundamental Tax Reform Is Now Unstoppable; By Louis Woodhill; Forbes, 10/26/2011)

 

Tomorrow, I will introduce a plan consisting of 59 specific proposals — including 10 concrete actions I will take on my first day in office — to turn around America’s economy. Each proposal is rooted in the conservative premise that government itself cannot create jobs. At best, government can provide a framework in which economic growth can occur. All too often, however, government gets in the way. The past three years of unparalleled government expansion have retaught that lesson all too well.

 

Only the individual initiative of entrepreneurs, workers, investors and inventors enables companies, and our economy as a whole, to flourish. We must once again unleash the tremendous economic potential of the American people. The contrast between what the Obama administration has done and what I would do as president could not be starker.

 

 

As this catalogue of differences makes clear, our country has arrived at a fork in the road. In one direction lies the heavy hand of the state, indebtedness and decline. In the other direction lies limited government, free enterprise and economic growth. I know which direction is the American way. And I know in which direction lie the millions of jobs we need. (MY PLAN TO TURN AROUND THE U.S. ECONOMY; By Mitt Romney; MittRomney.com, 9-5-11)

 

Q: A Wall Street Journal editorial recently called your 59-point economic plan “surprisingly timid & tactical considering our economic predicament.” Specifically, they had a problem with you picking the $200,000 income threshold for eliminating interest, dividends, and capital gains taxes, writing that you were afraid of “class warfare rhetoric.”

 

ROMNEY: What you have to do is make America the most attractive place in the world for business, and that means our corporate tax rates have to be competitive #2: government and regulators have to be allies of business, not foes.#3: we’ve got to become energy secure in this country. #4: we have to have trade policies that work for us, and crack down on cheaters like China. And my list goes on in my 59 points. I know there are some that say, look, we should lower taxes for the very highest-income people. My view is very simple: The people that have been hurt most by the Obama economy, has been the middle class. That’s why I cut taxes for the middle class.

 

 

Q: Do you support the FairTax?

 

ROMNEY: The idea of a national sales tax or a consumption tax has a lot to go for it. One, it would make us more competitive globally, as we send products around the world, because under the provisions of the World Trade Organization, you can reimburse that to an exporter. We can’t reimburse our taxes right now. It also would level the playing field in the country, making sure everybody is paying some part of their fair share. But the way the fair tax has been structured it has a real problem and that is it lowers the burden on the very highest income folks and the very lowest and raises it on middle income people. And the people who have been hurt most by the economy are the middle class. And so my plan is for middle income Americans, no tax on interest, dividends or capital gains. Let people save their money as the way they think is best. We’re taxing too much, we’re spending too much and middle income Americans need a break and I’ll give it to them.

 

 

If we want to make more capital available for investment, we will have to lower taxes on saving and investing, either at the corporate or the individual level, or preferably both. A lower corporate tax rate would accomplish all that the myriad special tax breaks do, and improve the incentives for investment and entrepreneurship as well. Personal taxes on dividends, interest, and capital gains for all middle-income families should be completely eliminated.

 

Some people advocate the “FairTax” as a means of boosting savings, a system that would entirely replace income taxes with a consumption tax–a kind of sales tax. FairTax proponents estimate that a tax rate of 23% would be sufficient, but detractors claim that it would be closer to 40%. The enormous amount saved by the wealthiest under the FairTax would be made up by a higher tax burden on the middle class. This is not an outcome that will or should gain traction with the American public. (Mitt Romney on Tax Reform; Q & A On The Issues)

 

Five Bills for Day One

 

The American Competitiveness Act: Reduces the corporate income tax rate to 25 percent

 

The Open Markets Act: Implements the Colombia, Panama, and South Korea Free Trade Agreements

 

The Domestic Energy Act: Directs the Department of the Interior to undertake a comprehensive survey of American energy reserves in partnership with exploration companies and initiates leasing in all areas currently approved for exploration

 

The Retraining Reform Act: Consolidates the sprawl of federal retraining programs and returns funding and responsibility for these programs to the states

 

The Down Payment on Fiscal Sanity Act: Immediately cuts non-security discretionary spending by 5 percent, reducing the annual federal budget by $20 billion

 

Five Executive Orders for Day One

 

An Order to Pave the Way to End Obamacare: Directs the Secretary of Health and Human Services and all relevant federal officials to return the maximum possible authority to the states to innovate and design health care solutions that work best for them

 

An Order to Cut Red Tape: Directs all agencies to immediately initiate the elimination of Obama-era regulations that unduly burden the economy or job creation, and then caps annual increases in regulatory costs at zero dollars

 

An Order to Boost Domestic Energy Production: Directs the Department of the Interior to implement a process for rapid issuance of drilling permits to developers with established safety records seeking to use pre-approved techniques in pre-approved areas

 

An Order to Sanction China for Unfair Trade Practices: Directs the Department of the Treasury to list China as a currency manipulator in its biannual report and directs the Department of Commerce to assess countervailing duties on Chinese imports if China does not quickly move to float its currency

 

An Order to Empower American Businesses and Workers: Reverses the executive orders issued by President Obama that tilt the playing field in favor of organized labor, including the one encouraging the use of union labor on major government construction projects

 

Mitt Romney’s Plan for Jobs and Economic Growth

 

The book released by the campaign underscores President Obama’s failed approach to each policy area crucial to turning around the economy, and lays out precisely how Mitt Romney will address the issues as president:

 

Tax Policy

 

Mitt Romney will push for a fundamental redesign of our tax system. He recognizes the need to simplify the system. He also recognizes the need both to lower rates and to broaden the tax base so that taxation becomes an instrument for promoting economic growth. As president, Romney will hold the line on individual income tax rates and eliminate taxes on interest, dividends, and capital gains for low- and middle-income taxpayers. He will eliminate the estate tax. And he will pursue a conservative overhaul that applies lower and flatter rates to a broader tax base.

 

Romney will also reform the corporate tax system. He will immediately lower the corporate income tax rate, and then explore opportunities to further lower the marginal rate while broadening the tax base. He will also begin the process of transitioning to a territorial corporate tax system. A territorial system must be designed to encourage multinational companies to bring their profits back into the U.S. and it must avoid the creation of incentives for outsourcing. (Excerpted from FACT SHEET: MITT ROMNEY’S PLAN TO TURN AROUND THE ECONOMY; By Mitt Romney; MittRomney.com, 9-6-11)

 

Like I wrote, I am not voting for Romney in my State Primary but I will probably vote for Romney as the GOP nominee the General Election of November 6, 2012.

The Michele Bachmann Plan


Michele Bachmann

 

John R. Houk

© October 26, 2011

 

I am posting Michele Bachmann’s plan after Herman Cain’s because she was my first favorite GOP Candidate when this race for the GOP nomination began with a list of Candidates (otherwise it would have been Sarah Palin).

 

I love Michele Bachmann as a Candidate primarily because of Social Conservatism. Also Michele Bachmann is huge in the Tea Party Movement (TPM). Bachmann represents Tea Party Congressmen in the House as the leader of the Tea Party Caucus.

 

A Wikipedia article (Not necessarily TPM friendly) describes the TPM thus:

 

It [The TPM] endorses reduced government spending,[8][9] opposition to taxation in varying degrees,[9] reduction of the national debt and federal budget deficit,[8] and adherence to an originalist interpretation of the United States Constitution.[10]

 

Wikipedia describes the Tea Party Caucus thus:

 

The Tea Party Caucus is a caucus of the United States House of Representatives and Senate launched and chaired by Minnesota Congresswoman Bachmann on July 16, 2010.[1] The caucus is dedicated to promoting what it considers fiscal responsibility, adherence to the movement‘s interpretation of the Constitution, and limited government. The idea of a Tea Party Caucus originated from Kentucky Senator Rand Paul when he was campaigning for his current seat.[2]

 

The caucus was approved as an official congressional member organization by the House Administration Committee on July 19, 2010[3] and held its first meeting on July 21. Its first public event was a press conference on the grounds of the U.S. Capitol, also on July 21.[4] Four Senators joined the caucus on January 27, 2011.[5]

 

Michele Bachmann’s credentials as a Tea Party Conservative with Conservative Social Values are impeccable. The Bachmann campaign has thus emphasized the economics of job creation, less government and National budget plans (e.g. not raising the budget ceiling).

 

Bachmann’s plan is best summed up on her website:

 

Bachmann Introduces “American Jobs, Right Now” Blueprint for Economic Prosperity and Job Creation

 

Posted on October 11th, 2011

 

Hanover, NH – Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann announced today her blueprint for economic prosperity and job creation titled “American Jobs, Right Now.” With 9.1 percent unemployment, $16.7 trillion in national debt, and a severely weakened U.S. dollar, Bachmann is unveiling her vision for restoring confidence in the our financial system, spurring economic growth, and creating jobs for out of work Americans.

 

“It’s evident that the current trajectory of our country is simply not sustainable and President Obama lacks the understanding of how to return to a position of economic prominence in the world,” Bachmann said. “My blueprint will create an environment which will create real jobs here at home, and return America to a position of economic prominence in the world.”

 

Eleven Points of “American Jobs, Right Now” Blueprint:

 

1.     REPATRIATION. More than 1.2 trillion United States dollars could be brought back to America in days as an immediate “stimulus” if the government would zero out the tax rate on that money until December 31, and then permanently keep it here in the U.S. if taxed at a rate of 5 percent. Foreign earning totaling over $1.2 trillion is more than the President’s failed stimulus and it won’t come out of taxpayer wallets. It would increase the value of the dollar, provide valuable capital for the job creators in this country and pump tremendous amounts of money into our economy.

 

2.     CUT SPENDING AND GOVERNMENT. I have already voted to cut federal spending in the years ahead, every single time I have had the opportunity. In addition, I would phase out quasi-governmental enterprises, such as Fannie and Freddie, and eliminate duplicative government programs and costs. We must decrease government salaries to bring them in line with their private sector counterparts, and we must decrease the number of government employees. Over-spending by the government hurts job creation by devaluing the dollar and stealing capital from the private sector.

 

3.     REPEAL OBAMACARE. Healthcare is one-sixth of the U.S. economy and this unconstitutional takeover of healthcare by the federal government is creating crippling uncertainty for employers across this country. This legislation does nothing to address the true problem with our healthcare system – cost – and will cost states trillions. I believe it is an intentional backstop to imploding healthcare entitlement programs — Medicare and Medicaid — to transition toward a single payer-system. This is the number one hindrance to job creation in the United States (according to a recently released UBS study).

 

4.     CUT TAXES. I’ve demonstrated a firm commitment to cutting spending and balancing the budget. We need to reduce the number of tax brackets, repeal taxes outlined in Obamacare, fix the Alternative Minimum Tax, and eliminate the Death Tax. In addition, we must make the corporate tax code simpler and fairer, and allow U.S. companies that generate earnings overseas to bring back those profits and invest them in American jobs and growth.

 

5.     REPEAL THE JOBS AND HOUSING DESTRUCTION ACT, ALSO KNOWN AS DODD-FRANK. This law tightened regulations on banks, made it harder for Americans to obtain credit, and failed to address the systemic problem that caused the Wall Street collapse — leverage. This 849-page bill calls for 400 new sets of rules that will be written on 6000 Federal Register pages, all written by bureaucrats, many of whom have never worked in the financial services field. The law also creates a potentially intrusive Financial Services Consumer Protection Bureau that is not accountable to Congress and which has but a vague mandate to combat misconduct – so in the wrong hands, it could cause its own kind of misconduct.

 

6.     LEGALIZE AMERICAN ENERGY PRODUCTION AND AMERICA’S NATURAL RESOURCES. This could create 1.4 million jobs, bringing $800 billion of new revenue into the U.S. Treasury, and increasing domestic energy supplies by 50 percent. The price of energy has a direct impact on nearly ever[y] facet of our lives. We have to abandon the parochial and political energy policies of the past and install a comprehensive energy plan that not only reduces our reliance on unfriendly foreign regimes, but also creates millions of American jobs and generates increased tax revenues. According to the Congressional Research Service, the U.S. has more energy potential than any other country in the world. We should use that potential. It is a better policy to create American jobs and explore in an environmentally-sound way, than to rely on foreign dictators who give little regard to the environment. This includes specific strategies like reviving the logging, timber, mining and metals industries, and bringing federal lands back into productive activity by repealing radical environmental laws that kill access to natural resources.

 

7.     REPEAL JOB KILLING REGULATIONS. America’s job creators and small business owners have lost economic liberty under the weight of $1.8 billion annually in compliance costs with government regulations. Together we sent $2.2 trillion in taxes to the federal government this year. By comparison, job creators spend nearly as much annually to comply with bureaucratic mandates. Obamacare, Dodd-Frank, and the string of mandates and rules from the Environmental Protection Agency — as well as other agencies — are creating such incredible uncertainty in the market. The House Republican leadership has identified 219 planned Obama administration regulations, each of which will cost the economy more than $100 million. This red tape rampage must stop.

 

8.     INCREASE EXPORTS. This President has been holding hostage trade deals with Colombia, Panama and South Korea as he tries to negotiate favor for Big Labor. The world needs to know that we are open for business and U.S. Companies need to expand beyond our borders to the 95 percent of people who do not live here.

 

9.     UNLEASH AMERICAN INVESTMENT. By eliminating unnecessary taxes and regulation, and expanding trade, we will create an incentive for investment in America again. We must do whatever it takes to restore our ability to manufacture here in the U.S. We can do this by reforming the tax code, providing incentive for growth, and allowing the private sector to control the market with little government involvement.

 

10. PAVE A PATHWAY FOR INNOVATION. Recent reports indicated that the United States has now slipped to 5th in the competitiveness rankings, and 47th in education. How do we expect to lead the world economically when we are not doing what is needed to inspire and foster innovation here at home? The future of the American economy lies with the innovation of this and future generations.

 

11. ENFORCE AMERICAN IMMIGRATION LAWS. The failure of the federal government to enforce its immigration laws costs federal, state and local governments billions of dollars annually. Our nation was founded on the rule of law, and we must ensure U.S. immigration laws are respected and enforced not only to preserve our national security, but to protect federal, state, and local budgets, and to curb the unfair strain on our country’s job markets.

 

“My solutions are simple. We need to cut government spending, legalize America’s God-given natural resources, and stop taxing investment and productivity,” Bachmann said. “In other words, we need to do what growing economies do.”

 

Everything about Bachmann’s plan to right America is very Tea Party; however it is lacking in detail. The eleven points are good ideas but there is not an actual blue print to implement the plan. I think the lack of detail compared to Herman Cain’s 9-9-9 plan has lost her support among lower economic scale GOP voters because Republicans like the ability to read something concrete to counter Obama’s big government socializing counter-American Heritage transformation of Change. The lower Middle Class GOP voters represent the largest bloc of Republican voters.

 

It is very surprising that Michele Bachmann does not have a comparable tax plan to Herman Cain and now Rick Perry and Mitt Romney’s 59 points. My surprise is because part of Bachmann’s credentials to run for President is her experience as a tax lawyer.

 

Here is an excerpt on Michele Bachmann’s stand on taxation taken from a somewhat favorable website:

 

Summary

 

Congresswoman Bachmann consistently supports lower taxes for all areas, and has stated that taxes are simply too high. She was a strong supporter for extending the Bush tax cuts, and has repeatedly called for ending the death tax, the AMT, and removing the tax on capital gains.

 

Congresswoman Bachmann has proposed the Taxpayer Bill of Rights to put her views on taxes on the record. This bill of rights includes the rights to expect the government to balance the budget without having their taxes raised, and the right to a simple, fair tax code that they can understand.

 

In addition to calling for a simplification of the tax code, Congresswoman Bachmann has called for an end to the death tax. She stated that the tax was inefficient, a job killer, and discouraged saving.

 

In keeping with the idea of ending some taxes and simplifying the overall tax code, Congresswoman Bachman has proposed the Taxpayer Choice Act. This legislation would end the AMT, make the Bush tax rates on capital gains and dividends permanent, and create a voluntary Simplified Tax that would give individuals the option of paying under a highly simplified income tax system or under the regular income tax as it is structured now.

 

During the 2010 debate over extending the Bush tax cuts, Congresswoman Bachmann noted that higher tax rates do not mean higher tax revenues. She stated that higher rates or the uncertainty of a temporary extension would hamper economic growth.

 

Although she has not proposed a specific tax plan, Congresswoman Bachmann has outlined steps she would take if elected President. The steps proposed included numerous tax measures, including:

 

1.     Make all the Bush tax cuts permanent.

 

2.     Cut the corporate tax rate of 34 percent to “single digits” to spur growth and job creation.

 

3.     Kill capital gains taxes.

 

4.     Zero out the death tax.

 

5.     Cap personal income taxes at 20 percent.

 

(Read the whole page that has Bachmann quotes on taxation.)

 

Recently Bachmann has made statements concerning a tax overhaul; however her statements have the picture of what she wants to do as President and is lacking the actual plan for Republicans to get excited about.

 

Bachmann has recently said she would return the country to a Reagan-era tax code.  Tonight Bachmann seemed to say something slightly different. “I will abolish the United States federal tax code and have a flatter, simpler, fairer income tax,” she said. (Last Paragraph of Bachmann @ IFFC speaks of “flatter, simpler, fairer income tax”; by O. Kay Henderson; 10/22/11)

 

I have not been able to find anything concrete as to what Bachmann means by a “flatter, simple, fairer income tax”. As much as I like Michele Bachmann if she does not come up with a blue print to match her “flatter, simpler, fairer income tax” she will be left behind GOP Candidates who do have a concrete plan. So far the only Candidate with a concrete plan that I like is Herman Cain.

Pay Attention to what is Happening INSIDE China


China Flag Held by Soldiers

John R. Houk

© January 18, 2011

 

An interesting essay by Rodger Baker about Communist China’s (I believe the Chinese government prefers People’s Republic of China) political, military and economic internal affairs that may concern American National Interests has been published at Stratfor.

 

Baker writes that China’s generational leadership is about to change. He examines the significance of the new Chinese war jet the J-20. Baker actually examines a whole range of topics that followers of geopolitics should be interested in. The part of the essay that caught my eye is the potential competition for authority in China between the government (as managed by the elitist Communist Party) and the military.

 

Evidently as the Chinese leaders have evolved from connections to Mao’s eventual revolutionary victory over the Nationalist Party that had governed China predating the end of WWII culminating in 1948. Those revolutionary leaders were also military leaders. Today’s Chinese government leaders have no military experience and thus have a tendency to rely on the advice of the military. Apparently the military began to carve spheres of influence in regions of China connected to local economies thus enriching military officers in those regions. President Hu Jintao, who will be replaced shortly by Xi Jinping, has made efforts to reform the military by divorcing it from any regional economic operations. As you can guess the arm of China that has the guns was not necessarily pleased at losing its side business that brought money into personal coffers.

 

President Jintao military reform is an attempt to stave off the possibility of military warlords reminiscent of the last days of Chinese Emperors and the initial uniting efforts of the Nationalist Party to end warlord feudalism. Communist China has experienced relatively smooth transfers of political leadership after the days of Mao Zedong, Chou Enlai (or I guess history is using Zhou Enlai these days) and Deng Xiaoping. The concern for the American National Interests is the Chinese military’s increasingly forward looking into Foreign Relations especially as it relates to the United States’ military might. If the big dogs in the Chinese military become dissatisfied with the direction of the civilian government management by the Communist Party elite, would the military exact a coup in China? And if there ever was a coup, would the military return to the extreme brutality of the genocidal years of Mao Zedong to reinforce control over China? If there is a military coup, would China take a more confrontational path with the United States to possibly try a Chinese version of the old Monroe Doctrine to keep American influence out of Asia? If a Chinese military ruled, might that push nuclear armed India more into America’s orbit rather than Russia’s orbit due to the competition between a constitutional government market economy and a Communist authoritarian government?

 

These questions are a big factor in America’s future especially if China exploits the GWOT to weaken our National Interests and Foreign Policy.

Newbill on Banks, Government, China, Economy, Union and the People


Stimulus CK-  Chinaman giving & Demanding

Below are a series of emails sent to me by Tony Newbill. Newbill has a habit of writing his thoughts in a random manner which sometimes makes for difficult reading. Newbill’s thoughts are fascinating though. I believe the best description I can provide for the thoughts are a huge dose of Capitalism merged with some collectivist ideas on a community level rather than the typical the typical Socialistic international utopianism. I need to be clear: I also believe Tony Newbill is very anti-Leftist. This loose description is the very thing that makes Newbill’s thoughts enticingly fascinating.

 

Of great note is that there are two emails that were sent with the same message. Newbill felt the second clarified a prior email. I include them both because there are slight variations probably due to my editing than to Newbill’s clarification. Also note that the links are in plain text except when I link a phrase or word. Copy and paste the plain text links in order to discover Newbill’s reference. Below is the post.
