Be prepared for that "correction" in the markets.

Very few things give me nightmares… Yesterday’s event in Cyprus was one of them and the media is conspicuously silent. What do you get when you combine worldwide Marxist elitists, bankers and the media? A worldwide depression and a new dark age. The IMF (in case you are wondering who they are) is using Greece as a proving ground for the rest of us. It is a fascist Petri dish. They just implemented an across the board tax on all bank accounts over a holiday with no warning and no recourse. 9.9% if you have over 100,000 Euros in the bank, 6.75% is you have less than that. This is money being seized by the IMF, the European Union and the government of Greece to attempt to cover some of their debt. It is theft and it could have been a lot worse. The IMF had proposed a 40% haircut on all accounts. This is how it went down:

Banks first cooperated with the EU by sealing off the amount of the proposed levy—a 6.75 percent tax on deposits under €100,000 and 9.9 percent on those above —making it impossible for depositors to access their full amount. The only means bank customers have left is the ability to draw from the rest of their funds via ATM machines this weekend. Many depositors made their way to the machines on Saturday to drain their accounts. But the few banks that opened on Saturdays did so only briefly, and no international transfers will be able to go through until Tuesday, with Monday being the holiday. Cyprus’ Parliament is expected to meet Sunday to pass the required legislation., or after the deed was done. The deal also needs the approval of several eurozone parliaments; at the time of writing it was unclear how fast they can act and what will happen to bank deposits in the meantime.

What’s happening in Cyprus should send a chill over the entire world.

Politicians working with complicit big banks need no rule of law; no parliament debates to close in on the bank accounts of average people.

The Daily Mail:

Cash machines EMPTIED across Cyprus and 60,000 British savers face losing MILLIONS after £8.7bn EU bailout imposes tax of up to 10% on all bank accounts

This could happen to any country in the European Union, but something like this usually happens to a tiny little country like Cypress, first. This means that personal bank account holders in Spain, Greece, and other countries like Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania are also vulnerable should their nations falter in paying off loans to the IMF or the European Union. But, hey, what do you expect? The IMF has been run by card carrying Marxists since day one (I learned this in Blacklisted by History about Joe McCarthy).

They are confiscating money out of personal bank accounts, and they are getting away with it by calling it a tax. Surely, the Democrats here in the U.S. are taking notes, because they already have their eyes on U.S. personal retirement accounts.

Our bank wont let depositors withdraw more than a $1000 cash in any 24 hour period. This isnt something new. They started this policy a year ago. So we removed all our money. We closed all our accounts except one. And that one never has more than a $1000 in it. I bought a $16,000 JD track hoe. Wrote the guy a check. Had him endorse it and then we cashed it. We paid him with 160 hundred dollar bills. Our children thought we where being old stupid & dumb. Today One of my sons just called me and told me he also is removing his money from the bank. This EU sanctioned bank robbery was endorsed and encouraged by The International Monetery Fund that is headquartered in New york. Rob from the customers and give it to themselves? We cant trust anyone! This could well be the trigger that causes the world wide economic collapse. And Its gonna happen very soon . No if, ands, but,s or maybe,s.There is a world wide economic collapse looming.

I didn't watch the speech, but assuming it's true, it leads me to believe one thing. He will be running for president. That being the case, he will NEVER win without the Mexican vote. That is the only way he can get them over to the Republican side. Right or wrong, it's for him to decide. Either way, those people aren't going home, no matter who is in the White House.

So Its Ok for him to sell out because? It shouldnt be about doing whatever is needed to win. its more importiant to do the right thing. better to not win than to sell your integerty. I bvelieve he is showing his true colors.

It is not for him to decide. It's for the American people to decide. You cut off the jobs for these illegals in this country with sanctions and they will go home..

Is he selling out? Is he saying what they want to hear? Is he saying this because he truly believes it's the right thing to do? Is he saying it knowing he would never sign such a bill? Is he saying it because he knows Obama is going to do it before 2016 anyway? I don't know.

Unfortunately, in the society we live in, the ONLY way one can get enough votes to win is to tell people what they want to hear. In other words, for anyone to save this country, they MUST get elected first. Talk is cheap, IMO.

In the end, it's whether or not they keep their promise to defend and uphold the Constitution when they place their right hand on the Bible.

They will go home? You really think so? I think they are more likely to turn to crime and stay here.

Ive been harping on that for years, I want the goverment to go after those lawbreakers who hire & work the Illegals. Punish them so severely no one would dare work illegals. And they would leave in droves. My digs at Rand Paul where aimed at Raptor because of her infatuation with Ron Paul and her putting the pauls on a pedistal. She apparently believed their star shined brighter than all the other politicans. But Paul letting them become citizens makes the solution of going after the lawbreaking employers worthless.

I am not infatuated with Ron Paul, nor do I put anyone on a pedestal. I simply believe he is/was among the best, most honest, of the Washington elite. There is a reason he was shunned by his colleagues, ya know.



As for Rand, time will tell. I don't know a whole lot about him....... yet. We don't even know if he will run for president. When the time comes, I'll look at his record then.

I believe Jeb Bush will be the republicans' other option.
