(Jerome R. Corsi)- Let’s face it. The Tea Party is the last great hope of saving the United States of America from financial ruin.
Last week, the establishment leadership of the Republican Party caved in to Obama administration demands to raise the debt ceiling and reopen the government without exacting any concessions on delaying or defunding Obamacare.
Watching the Republican leadership in the Senate led by Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker John Boehner trip over themselves to surrender to the Democrats was a disgusting experience.
The point is that Tea Party Loyalists are conservatives first and foremost. Our allegiance is to God and the USA, not to the Republican Party.
FAX BLAST SPECIAL: Congress has forgotten who holds the power. Send a Powerful Message and a Tea Party Flag To Washington! It is now time to tell our elected officials ‘the Tea Party is Coming’!
If the Republican Party wants to be another me-too Democratic Party look-alike, then Tea Party Loyalists have no need of the Republican Party.
But even though a battle was lost, the war continues to rage on.
Truthfully, we have only just begun to fight.
Jerome R Corsi? ROFLMAO

Justice and Financial Fraud: The Blanket Settlement with JPMorgan: A $13 Billion Cover-up
US newspapers on Sunday led with reports of a tentative settlement between JPMorgan Chase and the Obama Justice Department of numerous investigations into the bank’s fraudulent sale of toxic mortgage-backed securities in the lead-up to the 2008 Wall Street crash.

The reports presented the deal, under which the nation’s largest bank will pay $9 billion in fines and provide relief to consumers worth $4 billion, as a victory for the Justice Department and a major step in holding the banks responsible for the economic catastrophe they inflicted on the country and the world.

This is nonsense. JPMorgan and its CEO, Jamie Dimon, have pressed for such a blanket deal to allow the bank to pay a fine and obtain in return the equivalent of a general amnesty for illegal actions that have led to the impoverishment of countless millions of people. The systematic marketing of worthless securities enabled the bank to pocket tens of billions of dollars and further enrich top executives such as Dimon.

When the Ponzi scheme collapsed, the government used trillions of dollars in taxpayer money to bail out the banks and financial firms. Since 2009, it—along with governments all over the world—has been engaged in a savage offensive to recoup the debts taken on by the state by destroying social programs and the living standards of the working class.

The $9 billion fine, the largest penalty ever imposed on a US corporation, is less than half the $21 billion profit JPMorgan recorded in 2012. The bank is pulling in enormous profits despite having set aside $28 billion since 2010 to cover legal costs.

It is necessary to place the size of the fine in the context of the economic damage resulting from the bank’s practices. Reportedly,$4 billion will go to settle a suit by the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) charging JPMorgan with knowingly making false statements and omitting material facts in selling $33 billion in worthless mortgage bonds to the government-sponsored mortgage finance companies Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac at the height of the subprime mortgage bubble (2005-2007). That is about 2 percent of the $188 billion in taxpayer money the government has spent thus far to prop up the firms.

In setting the fine, the Obama administration calculated that the bank could absorb the loss with minimal damage. At the same time, the size of the penalty indicates that the Justice Department has abundant evidence of illegality—on a massive scale.

THE THIRD WORLD KNOW OBAMAS GOVERNMENT IS A FRAUD NO CHANGE FROM BUSH America Spies on its Closest Allies: NSA Accessed Mexican President’s Email
"Tailored Access Operations" (TAO) Devises Special Methods for Special Targets.The National Security Agency (NSA) has a division for particularly difficult missions. Called “Tailored Access Operations”(TAO), this department devises special methods for special targets.
That category includes surveillance of neighboring Mexico, and in May 2010, the division reported its mission accomplished. A report classified as “top secret” said:“TAO successfully exploited a key mail server in the Mexican Presidencia domain within the Mexican Presidential network to gain first-ever access to President Felipe Calderon’s public email account.”According to the NSA, this email domain was also used by cabinet members, and contained “diplomatic, economic and leadership communications which continue to provide insight into Mexico’s political system and internal stability.” The president’s office, the NSA reported, was now “a lucrative source.”

This operation, dubbed “Flatliquid,” is described in a document leaked by whistleblower Edward Snowden, which SPIEGEL has now had the opportunity to analyze. The case is likely to cause further strain on relations between Mexico and the United States, which have been tense since Brazilian television network TV Globo revealed in September that the NSA monitored then-presidential candidate Enrique Peña Nieto and others around him in the summer of 2012. Peña Nieto, now Mexico’s president, summoned the US ambassador in the wake of that news, but confined his reaction to demanding an investigation into the matter.

ONLY OBAMAS CHERRY PICKERS SAYS Different America’s Economic Dark Side. Widening Social Inequality, Rising Poverty and Joblessness
Former Clinton administration Labor Secretary Robert Reich explained, saying:

“Of all developed nations, the United States has the most unequal distribution of income, and we’re surging towards every greater inequality.”

America’s 400 richest elites have more wealth than half the population. Jacob Kornbluth’s new documentary film “Inequality for All” examines disturbing truths.

US inequality is at historic highs. Since 1970, America’s economy doubled. The top 1% benefited hugely. They earn more than 20% of national income. It’s triple their 1970 percentage.

The gap between rich and all others keeps widening. Inequality hurts everyone, says Reich. Since economic recovery began in 2009, America’s top 1% got 95% of the gains.

Adjusted for inflation, median household income keeps declining. Where will most people “get the money they need to keep the economy going,” asked Reich?

“We’re the richest economy in the history of the world. For the majority of Americans not to get the benefits of this extraordinarily prosperous economy, you know, there’s something fundamentally wrong.”

America has less upward mobility than any other developed country. If you’re poor, you’ll stay that way.

If you’re lower middle class,“the cards are going to be stacked against you. You will probably never get anywhere,” says Reich.

“Who is actually looking out for the American worker? The answer is nobody.”

The nation is headed toward becoming a “100 percent plutocracy.” Inequality this extreme fuels public anger. It hurts economic growth. Force-fed austerity assures worse ahead.

Reich teaches a popular Wealth and Poverty course at UC Berkeley. His book “Beyond Outrage” explains what’s wrong with America’s economy.

It doesn’t work. It benefits the privileged few. It harms most others. Doing so undermines America. Expect worse ahead unless people react, he says.

He’s never been more concerned about things than now. He cites “the corrupting effects of big money in politics,” regressive hard right policies, and unprecedented “wealth and power at the very top.”

Things are “perilously close” to falling apart altogether. People are right to be outraged. It’s a “prerequisite for social change.” It’s vital to “move beyond outrage and take action.”

It's the Titanic. The blow hard Democrats messed up big time. This website fiasco is just the tip of the Iceberg.
Information Technology experts, outside and inside the government, have figured out the reason why the website for Obamakare's federally-sponsored insurance exchange is crashing.

Healthcare.gov forces you to create an account, a self-incrimination surveillance program requiring detailed personal information selling yourself out before you can shop for obamakare.

This, in turn, creates a massive traffic bottleneck, as the government gathers, a surveillance program that verifies your personal information and decides whether or not you're eligible for subsidies or handouts before you shop.

HHS bureaucrats knew this would make the website run slowly, and are more afraid letting people see first the underlying cost of Obamakare's insurance plans would scare people away.

If not for obamakare, the Tea Party would not have been a great success..

It's the culture....

Well, this administration not only spies on journalists and invades its own citizens' privacy but they've now decided to make enemies out of our allies. The NSA has been caught confiscating over 70 million French phone records. Similarly, in Britain and Germany. An angered Brazilian president cancelled a state visit to Washington and denounced the U.S. for "violation of human rights and of civil liberties."

http://news.msn.com/world/nsa-took-703m-frenc...

That's our present administration...power hungry, above the law, no clue, making enemies here and abroad, and the liberal media helping them get away with it.

Here's the headline:

"As Secretary of State John Kerry arrived in Paris, the French government summoned the U.S. ambassador to explain extensive spying on a close ally."

...Might as well tell the French government good luck with that. This administration explains nothing to no one. Americans know that firsthand.
