1.4 BILLION Spent On The Obamas In 2011 – British Taxpayers Only Spent 57.8 Million On The Royal Family
By Michael, on September 27th, 2012
While most of America is suffering through one the worst economic downturns in U.S. history, the Obamas are living the high life at your expense. During 2011, U.S. taxpayers spent an astounding 1.4 billion dollars on the Obamas. Meanwhile, British taxpayers only spent 57.8 million dollars on the entire royal family. Does anyone else see something wrong with this picture? So where did the 1.4 billion dollars go? That money paid the salaries of their staff members, it paid for their transportation and housing costs, it paid for entertainment and vacations for the Obamas, and $102,000 was even spent on a "dog handler" for the family dog Bo. In his new book entitled "Presidential Perks Gone Royal: Your Taxes Are Being Used For Obama's Re-election", author Robert Keith Gray reveals some absolutely shocking details about the enormous amounts of U.S. taxpayer money that are being spent on the personal needs of the Obamas. At a time when the U.S. national debt is absolutely exploding this kind of outrageous spending is completely and totally inappropriate, but of course the mainstream media is not going to report on this because they don't want to do anything to put the Obamas in a bad light this close to the election.
Some of the things that Robert Keith Gray has uncovered are absolutely mind blowing. The following are a few facts from his new book....
-Never before has so much money been spent on a president and his family during a single year
-The Obamas have the "biggest staff in history at the highest wages ever"
-While Obama has been in office, Air Force One has been "running with the frequency of a scheduled air line"
-Obama has 469 senior staff working under him, and 226 of them make more than $100,000 a year
-There is always at least one projectionist at the White House 24 hours a day just in case there is someone that wants to watch a movie.
-The "dog handler" for the family dog Bo reportedly makes $102,000 per year and sometimes he is even flown to where the family is vacationing so that he can care for the dog

Will The Chinese Renminbi Replace The U.S. Dollar As The Primary Reserve Currency Of The World?
Most Americans have no idea what a tremendous advantage the United States possesses by having the primary reserve currency of the world, and most Americans also have no idea how close the U.S. dollar is to losing that status. For the past 40 years, the vast majority of all global trade (including the buying and selling of oil) has been done in U.S. dollars. That is still the case today, but things are starting to shift. All over the globe international agreements are being made to move away from the U.S. dollar and to use other currencies in global trade. The second largest economy in the world, China, has been particularly aggressive in seeking to change the existing financial order. As you will see below, China has been running all over the planet making agreements with other nations to start conducting an increasing amount of trade in currencies other than the U.S. dollar. And of course the Chinese are heavily promoting their own currency - the renminbi. So why is this happening?
#767632 Oct 10, 2012
And of course the Chinese are heavily promoting their own currency - the renminbi. So why is this happening? Well, for one thing, the truth is that the United States is not the only superpower in the world anymore. The Chinese economy is actually projected to become larger than the U.S. economy by 2016, and by some measurements the Chinese economy is already larger. So Chinese leaders have been very open about the fact that they believe that it just doesn't make sense that the vast majority of all global trade should continue to be conducted in U.S. dollars, especially considering the reckless money printing that the Federal Reserve has been doing. At a time when the status of the U.S. dollar is already slipping, QE3 is deeply undermining confidence in U.S. currency. And when the U.S. dollar does lose reserve currency status, the consequences for the United States are going to be absolutely catastrophic.
Sadly, most Americans don't even know what a "reserve currency" is or that the U.S. dollar is under attack.
The Chinese have not only been talking about cutting the legs out from under the U.S. dollar - they have been actively doing it. The following is an excerpt from a recent story by Alan Wheatley, a global economics correspondent for Reuters....

Are you part of the Obama campaign? You are making about as much sense as they are-Obama's team has no sense at all these days.

Our tax dollars at work!!
#767635 Oct 10, 2012
Most U.S. economists dismiss this threat by pointing out that China has stockpiled so many U.S. dollars and so much U.S. debt that if anything happens to the U.S. financial system China would be significantly damaged as well.
That may be true to a certain extent, but what is also true is that most Americans fundamentally misunderstand our relationship with China.
Most Americans believe that we are "friends" with China just because they are conducting massive amounts of trade with us.
Sadly, that is not how the Chinese see us. They see us as "the competition", and they very much plan on coming out on top in the end.
Right now, the Chinese are stockpiling mind blowing amounts of gold. They are preparing for the day when the U.S. dollar crashes and when hard assets will be the place to be.
And some are even speculating that the Chinese may be planning to back their own currency with gold at some point.
The following is an excerpt from a recent article by Christopher K. Potter, the president of Northern Border Capital Management....
For three thousand years China has been at the forefront of monetary innovation. It was the first to legalize gold money in the tenth century BC and two millennia later it issued the world’s first paper currency. Fast forward to 2012 and China is at it again, eclipsing Australia as the largest producer of gold and increasing its monetary gold reserves at an alarming rate. Five years ago China surpassed the US in gold production and five years from now it will own more gold than the US Federal government.
Do not dismiss this as just another example of China’s insatiable appetite for natural resources. It is not. China is preparing for a world beyond the inconvertible paper dollar, a world in which the renminbi, buttressed by gold, becomes the dominant reserve currency.
Lest anyone doubt China’s resolve, just consider the following: The Chinese government has recently removed all restrictions on personal ownership of gold; legalized domestic gold exchange traded funds; is currently purchasing 100% of domestic gold mine production; has imported over 750 tons of gold (27% of global output) in the last 12 months; stated publically its intention to add 1,000 tons per year to its central bank gold reserves; and is buying major stakes in foreign gold mining companies. The scale of this initiative is extraordinary.
When the U.S. financial system crashes, what do you think the rest of the world is going to want - paper U.S. currency that is rapidly becoming worthless or renminbi backed by gold?
China is very serious about this effort to hoard gold. Reportedly, the amount of gold that China has imported in 2012 alone is greater than the total amount of gold that the European Central Bank is officially holding.
And China is gobbling up gold mining operations all over the planet at a staggering rate. I discussed this extensively in a previous article that you can find here.
Okay, so what happens if the rest of the world starts rejecting the U.S. dollar as a reserve currency and starts moving to other currencies such as the Chinese renminbi?
The change would potentially be dramatic.
Up until now, there has been a constantly growing demand for more dollars from the rest of the globe. They have needed dollars to buy oil and to trade with one another.
All of this demand has kept the value of the U.S. dollar up. But if the rest of the globe started rejecting the dollar, it would drop like a rock.
#767636 Oct 10, 2012
When the value of the dollar declines, imports become more expensive.
So the price of oil would go higher and you would pay more for gasoline at the gas pump.
And since just about everything is made outside the country these days, just about everything you buy at Wal-Mart would become significantly more expensive.
The era of endless super cheap imports would be over and our standard of living would experience a massive adjustment.
So just how bad could things get?
Well, how would your life change if you went to the store a couple of years from now and the cost of everything was double or triple what it is today?
Yes, I know that sounds dramatic, but a major currency crisis coupled with reckless money printing by the Federal Reserve could actually produce such an outcome.
So enjoy those cheap imports while you still can. The days of the U.S. dollar being the sole primary reserve currency of the world are numbered, and when the dollar dies it is probably going to happen very rapidly.

Obama Pulls Security Team for Libyan Ambassador, Before He was Murdered -
Posted by Vatic Master
However, if I had written it I would change the title from "Obama .... pulls ..... " to read "Hillary at the orders of the Israeli's pulls .... " The first thing we have to remember, is the anomolies that tell us the truth is buried deep and the official story, just like 9-11, smells like rotted carcases in the afternoon desert sun. There is a list of these anomolies and this below is the coup de grace to the official story. The incompetence in pulling this off, speaks volumes about the cackling witch of Sodom and Gomorrah. She is way over her head in all of this assassination business and cover up.
This was a false flag using our own seasoned and well respected Ambassador as a sacrificial lamb for their perverted insane agenda. These are sick puppies and Nuremberg trials would be too good for them. I have to say, that until I started doing this research and this blog, I truly did not understand what true unadulterated evil was. I do now.
Here are the anomolies....

The WHO Wants To Impose A Global Tax On The Entire World
By Michael, on January 19th, 2010
Global TaxThe people who brought you "The Great Swine Flu Scare Of 2009" now want to bring you "The Great Global Health Tax Of 2010". The World Health Organization is actually considering a plan to ask governments all over the globe to impose a global consumer tax on such things as Internet activity and everyday financial transactions like paying bills online.
Apparently the goal of such a plan would be to raise "tens of billions of dollars" which would then be used to "transfer" pharmaceutical research, development and manufacturing capabilities to the developing world.
Transfer them from where?
Places like the United States?
So let's get this straight.
According to the WHO global tax plan, they want to do the following three things....
#1) Take away research, development and manufacturing jobs from us and give them to the developing world at a time when we can least afford it.
#2) Give much more money and power to the idiots who brought us the global swine flu scare of 2009.
#3) Make us pay for all of it.
The World Health Organization's "Expert Working Group" is also thinking of asking wealthy nations such as the United States to set aside fixed portions of their gross domestic product to finance the shift in worldwide research and development.
What in the world?
No, we do not want a global tax.
No, we do not want to redistribute our wealth.
We've got a big enough debt problem right now without the WHO trying to dip their greedy little fingers into our pockets.
Thanks to Obama and the U.S. Congress we are already flat broke as a nation.
So does anyone think that it is a remotely good idea to give billions of extra U.S. tax dollars to the WHO?
But the truth is that some nations are already taxing their citizens for the benefit of the WHO.
A program known as UNITAID was started in 2006. The goal of UNITAID is to battle HIV/AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis around the globe. This program is financed by a "solidarity contribution" levy of anywhere from $1.20 to $58 on airline tickets.
The nations already imposing this tax include France, Brazil, Chile, Norway and the U.K.
Apparently it has already raised around a billion dollars, and the WHO says that more countries are getting involved.
The truth is that this is yet another reason why the United States needs to leave the United Nations.
Not reform it.
Not try to get it to change.
The U.S. needs to pull out of the United Nations and never look back.
Otherwise, there are going to be relentless attempts to impose global taxes, global rules, global regulations and global mandates on the American people.
But we do not want global government.
We never have and we never will.
The Democrats are taxing us dry already. Just how bad would things be if we let a bunch of global bureaucrats dig around in our pockets?
#767642 Oct 10, 2012
if our great leader was a joke he would never be awarded Noble Peace Price by the Swedes .
We all know Swedes are superior to us .
