US Invaded By Nazi Banks

First this was on a conspiracy show, now it's real.



FEMA's future concentration camps are now being activated. First it will be illegals, then homeless, then protestors, then patriots, then vets and former cops, then middle class people thrown out of their homes -and then you and your family.

Are we really going to let the international bankers who have hijacked our federal government round us up when the economy falls appart as was done in Nazi Germany? If we allow this, we deserve this for being weak and lazy. A one world government might have been ok if the world ellites hadn't proven themselves to be tyrannical, genocidal, almost alien-like anti-human, psychopaths.

Think about this stuff for a minute. If a concerned average citizen criticizes the foreign banker bought federal government when the economy completely implodes they can now be labeled as terrorists/combatants and thus rounded up and jailed indefinitely with no trial. After a dollar collapse there will most likely be martial law imposed where if you criticize the UN or foreign banks occupying/"helping" us you are a terrorist and need to be put a FEMA detention center.

Similarly you could see this planned tyranny kick into high gear when we the population is at weakest -for example after the CIA instigates a false flag in America and brings all the power grids down causing multiple nuclear reactor meltdowns -or they releases a lab created killer virus. Then the federal government will label anyone that doesn't want to go to a FEMA concentration camp as a terrorist

All this uncertainty must be addressed now -nonviolently-, while the U.S. population is still strong and can fight back if we are really being weakened/invaded by a bunch of offshore United Nation backed foreign bankers.

Don't wait till we are at our weakest and can't defend ourselves effectively. The government is ok, but it's highest officials have been bought/hijacked by offshore banking cartels. The longer we wait to fix this, the harder it will be to stop this in a peaceful way. There is no need to get mad at Obama or any of these guys, they are simply bought out puppets. Right now we need answers.

------If you think the foreign banker owned federal government is terrible now in broad daylight with all this unchecked financial fraud, wait till the power grids go down and the lights and cameras turn off. When they think no one is watching -that's when their true tyranical nature will be revealed.------

You will have no one to blame but yourelf -“The only thing necessary for evil to flourish is for good men to do nothing.”–Edmund Burke.

And by all means support Ron Paul. Ron is like an average sane person walking onto the Jerry Springer set (our current federal government) and saying -seriously guys WTF. Come on, is this real or are you guys ALL getting paid to put on this idiotic show. I'm going to bring in my hard hitting investigation team and live cameras right now to show America what is going on unscripted so we finally know the truth. Oh yeah and Jerry, what's the deal with that Federal Reserve.

Obama and his Chicago mob boss government need to be flushed in 2012.

Let's push the reset button our current leaders and at least slow this trainwreck down before it's too late..

Get informed and tell everyone:

Mitt Romney Signs Taxpayer Protection Pledge

Mitt Romney Signs Taxpayer Protection Pledge
Massachusetts Governor makes written promise to eschew tax hikes

WASHINGTON, D.C.– Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, a candidate vying for the 2008 Republican presidential nomination, recently signed the Taxpayer Protection Pledge sponsored by Americans for Tax Reform (ATR). The Pledge commits signers to “oppose any and all efforts to increase the marginal income tax rates for individuals and/or businesses … and oppose any net reduction or elimination of deductions and credits, unless matched dollar for dollar by further reducing tax rates."

Gov. Romney became the first major candidate to sign the Taxpayer Protection Pledge on December 31st, 2006. As Governor, Mitt Romney pressed for several major tax cuts in the difficult blue-state environment of Massachusetts.

ATR has offered the Pledge to all candidates for federal office since 1987. To date, President George W. Bush, 43 U.S. senators, and 197 members of the U.S. House of Representatives have signed the Pledge. Additionally, seven Governors and over 1,100 state legislators have signed the Pledge as well.

“In signing the Pledge, Gov. Romney firmly commits himself in writing to fiscal discipline and economic common sense,” Grover Norquist said.“Mitt Romney has told taxpayers in no uncertain terms that he plans to look out for their interests.”

“I strongly encourage every Presidential candidate to sign the Pledge,” Norquist continued.

A top Obama campaign surrogate chastised the president's reelection team Sunday over its ad campaign attacking Mitt Romney's record at private equity firm Bain Capital.

The unusual comments from Newark Mayor Cory Booker came during a roundtable discussion Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press." Within hours of the appearance, Booker took to Twitter to reiterate his support for the president -- but he appeared to stand by his criticism of the anti-Romney ad, which he had described as "nauseating."

Even nobama's supporters are disgusted with his tactics. LMAO

So much better to elect a community organizer like Obama with zero management talent, business experience. or Legislative abilities than a successful American leader like Gov Romney.

The Democratic party, predictably, would have you believe that the GOP is the party of the big banks, but the story is actually more complicated than that, and more recent history actually suggest the Republicans are morphing into an anti-bank party.

No doubt that part of the Republican party has a long, friendly relationship with the big banks. This was the Northeastern GOP, which naturally was aligned with them because the banks were all situated in their region. But the Western flank of the GOP was actually quite anti-bank throughout the party's history, which is why it swung to the Populists in 1892 and then to the Bryan Democrats 1896: they thought the bankers back in the Northeast ripped them off with high interest rates and monetary policies that stifled inflation.
Related Stories

Another anti-bank faction in this country was the South, for similar reasons. For most of its history the region's politics was dominated by indebted farmers, meaning that Southern politicians were happy to regulate debt owners in the Northeast. In fact, Carter Glass -- a Virginia Democrat -- was the author of the Federal Reserve Act of 1913 and the co-sponsor of the Glass-Steagall Act of 1933. His attitude about federal regulation of the banks reflected not so much a liberal policy position (he was an early opponent to the New Deal) but that regional antipathy to financial interests in the Northeast.

Well, a funny thing has happened in the last 80 years. The Northeast has gone from being solidly Republican to solidly Democratic, meaning that there really are only a handful of Republicans who have constituency ties to the big banks (and plenty more Democrats!). Meanwhile, the rural West remains pretty staunchly Republican -- and anti-bank, as these Crossroads GPS ads suggest. Plus the South, which has always been inherently anti-bank, has become the strongest region for Republican party.

So, is it fair to say that the GOP is still the party of the banks? There are tensions within it, of course, but if you look at the House GOP's vote on TARP, the Tea Party, and ads like the one being run by Crossroads GPS, I'd say the balance of power in the party is now on the side of those who are suspicious of Northeastern bankers.

Obama caught on open mic making promises to Russia



President Barack Obama had to engage in some damage limitation yesterday after comments he made to Russia's leader were picked up by an open microphone.

In a conversation which both men thought was private, Mr Obama told Russian President Dmitry Medvedev that he would have more room to negotiate over US plans for a missile defence shield in Europe after the November presidential election

The Exasperation of the Democratic Billionaire


Real-estate and newspaper mogul Mortimer Zuckerman voted for Obama but began seeing trouble as soon as the stimulus went into the pockets of municipal unions.



By JAMES FREEMAN
New York

'It's as if he doesn't like people," says real-estate mogul and New York Daily News owner Mortimer Zuckerman of the president of the United States. Barack Obama doesn't seem to care for individuals, elaborates Mr. Zuckerman, though the president enjoys addressing millions of them on television.

The Boston Properties CEO is trying to understand why Mr. Obama has made little effort to build relationships on Capitol Hill or negotiate a bipartisan economic plan. A longtime supporter of the Democratic Party, Mr. Zuckerman wrote in these pages two months ago that the entire business community was "pleading for some kind of adult supervision" in Washington and "desperate for strong leadership."

Writing soon after the historic downgrade of U.S. Treasury debt by Standard & Poor's, he wrote, "I long for a triple-A president to run a triple-A country."

Obama: Stop Condescending to Women


By CAMPBELL BROWN
Published: May 19, 2012



WHEN I listen to President Obama speak to and about women, he sometimes sounds too paternalistic for my taste. In numerous appearances over the years — most recently at the Barnard graduation — he has made reference to how women are smarter than men. It’s all so tired, the kind of fake praise showered upon those one views as easy to impress. As I listen, I am always bracing for the old go-to cliché:“Behind every great man is a great woman.”


Some women are smarter than men and some aren’t. But to suggest to women that they deserve dominance instead of equality is at best a cheap applause line.

My bigger concern is that in courting women, Mr. Obama’s campaign so far has seemed maddeningly off point. His message to the Barnard graduates was that they should fight for a “seat at the table”— the head seat, he made sure to add. He conceded that it’s a tough economy, but he told the grads,“I am convinced you are tougher” and “things will get better — they always do.”

Hardly reassuring words when you look at the reality. According to the Center for Labor Market Studies at Northeastern University, about 53.6 percent of men and women under the age of 25 who hold bachelor’s degrees were jobless or underemployed last year, the most in at least 11 years. According to the Pew Research Center, if we broaden the age group to 18- to 29-year-olds, an estimated 37 percent are unemployed or out of the work force, the highest share in more than three decades.

The human faces shouldn’t get lost amid the statistics. I spent last weekend with a friend who attended excellent private schools and graduated from Tufts University two years ago. She’s intelligent, impressive and still looking for a full-time job.

The women I know who are struggling in this economy couldn’t be further from the fictional character of Julia, presented in Mr. Obama’s Web ad,“The Life of Julia,” a silly and embarrassing caricature based on the assumption that women look to government at every meaningful phase of their lives for help.

My cousin in Louisiana started a small company with a little savings, renovating houses. A single mom, she saved enough to buy a home and provide child care for her son. When the economy went belly up, so did her company. She was forced to sell her home and move in with her parents. She has found another job, but doesn’t make enough to move out. Family, not government, has been everything to her at this time of crisis. She, and they, wouldn’t have it any other way.
