Liberté, Egalité, Fraternité – Providence, Miracle or What Really Happened

By Robert Singer

Warning: Reading the following may be hazardous to your mental health. The material herein has caused readers to experience Cognitive Dissonance (CD).  CD is the discomfort felt at the discrepancy between what you already know or believe, and new information or interpretation that contradicts a strongly held belief system – It’s that queasy feeling that rises in your gut and screams, I DON’T BELIEVE THAT! Because, if you accepted the new information, you would have to admit you been ”had,” or ”conned,” in this case into shopping for stuff to trash the planet.

The benefit of the new information is that the world around you will finally make sense. Hot, flat, and crowded Thomas L. Friedman will finally know what planet George W. Bush is on. Bush lost the war on terrorism and the war in Iraq, but is winning the war on the environment.

At this point, it is advantageous to consider the efforts of writer Andrew Hitchcock, author of The History of the House of Rothschild.:

“The Rothschilds have been in control of the world for a very long time, their tentacles reaching into many aspects of our daily lives, and are the hidden hand behind all the social cataclysms in history.”

The French and American Revolution, the Civil War, World Wars, the Industrial Revolution, the Federal Reserve and our consumer society.

Meat, Milk and Motors: The New China Syndrome

By Robert Singer

August 21, theatres around the nation screened the documentary I.O.U.S.A. and a live discussion with America’s most notable financial leaders and policy experts, including Warren Buffett; William Niskanen, chairman of the Cato Institute; Pete Peterson, senior chairman of The Blackstone Group and former U.S. Comptroller General, Dave Walker.

August 25, Mr. William Niskanen, CEO of the Cato Institute, confirmed his remarks on the I.O.U.S.A. post-broadcast panel discussion.

Dear Mr. Singer,

I do not have a tape of my remarks last Thursday evening. As I remember, however, I expressed being puzzled why the central banks of China, Japan, and South Korea have continued to invest so much in U.S. Treasury securities.  For these central banks have earned a negative real return on these securities, for which the interest rate has been lower than the depreciation of the dollar.

I would value your judgment about this puzzle… William A. Niskanen

China is a “Hot Topic” at the nationally and internationally recognized Center for Trade Policy at Mr.… Read the rest

2008 Financial Collapse: An Inside Job

By Robert Singer

Maybe it’s the smoke from Mt. Vesuvius that keeps Arianna Huffington and the financial community from seeing that the economic collapse has nothing to do with the Fed “missing” the warning signs leading up to the October meltdown.

“Things do not happen. Things are made to happen.”   John F. Kennedy

The Fed didn’t miss anything; the October meltdown was an inside job.

Capitalism never made sense

Professor Ebeling, the Ludwig von Mises professor of Economics at Hillsdale College, understood something was wrong when he wrote: “the perverse development and evolution of historical capitalism, the institutions necessary for a truly free-market economy have been either undermined or prevented from emerging.”

But when he claimed, “it is the principles and the meaning of a free-market economy that must be rediscovered” in order to overcome the burden of historical capitalism and save liberty, he should have written that principles must be rediscovered in order to prevent the planet from attempted murder (ecocide).… Read the rest

The September Employment Rate is 90%

By Robert Singer

The U.S. Department of Labor Official Employment rate in September 2009 is now 90% (Unofficial rate is 75%).

And for those Americans who are still employed, they will find it harder to get that sweet deal on a new car because auto dealers won’t be competing with each other now that Brian Deese, special assistant to president Obama for economic policy made the decision (not the Chrysler bankruptcy judge), to close dealerships without regard to profitability.

Deese, age 31, in his first government position, shuffles back and forth from the West Wing to the Treasury Department dismantling the US Auto Industry and rewriting the rules of American “capitalism”. [1]

Deese’s first rule: Withdraw Credit and Liquidity.

Result – Catch 22:

The pullback in spending causes companies to cut back on inventory and staff – Creating unemployment.

Which causes spending to fall and companies to cut back on inventory and staff -Creating more unemployment.… Read the rest

Who is “Rewriting the Rules of American ‘Capitalism’”?

“We don’t want your tired, poor, huddled masses yearning to trash the planet” The Federal Reserve, 2009.

By Robert Singer

Having trouble understanding the events since the October 2008 financial crisis?

Any of this sound familiar:

  • Banks hoarding their TARP funds
  • Gas prices going up when they should be going down
  • Automobile dealerships closed without regard to profitability
  • Health Care reform: The Kevorkian is out of jail early

What’s going on?

Bush Sr. said our way of life wasn’t negotiable in 1992 but as of October 2008, it’s all over but the weeping and gnashing of teeth.

And in one of those coincidences that don’t happen very often: like all four financial meltdowns in history occurring in October, the October 2008 financial meltdown guaranteed Barack Obama, an unknown senator 4 years ago, would be the 44th president of the United States. [1]

October 2008, to anyone not in denial, marked the last day the men behind the Federal Reserve, all connected to the House of Rothschild, gave up what’s left of their wealth so the huddled middle class can trash the planet.… Read the rest

The Myth of “Free” Enterprise Economic System

hamburgerI’ll get right to the point: McDonalds in the 1950s made a profit by selling a product for less than the competition, but a not-so-invisible hand produced cheap calories in great abundance so Ray “Crock” could sell a cheeseburger, fries and a large Coke for a price equal to less than an hour of labor at the minimum wage — and still make a profit. [2] You don’t eat the hamburger at McDonalds because it’s a dollar: It’s a dollar to get you to eat it. How did we get a food system that produced what should be a $35 hamburger downwardly manipulated to $1? [3]...

Exclusive … 9/11, What’s Wrong With This Picture?

And finally a warning from President Bush, “Let us never tolerate outrageous conspiracy theories” aired on national television after the attacks of 9/11 and right before the Patriot Act was forced down Congress. Super misinformation.

Google “9/11 conspiracy” and you get 134,000,000 results. Google “9/11 outrageous conspiracy” you get 556,000 results. There is a 9/11-truth movement in every major city in the United States. 9/11 conspiracy theories are allowed and even encouraged. Could the 9/11 Truth movement be the cover for another story?

Many official government stories are so ridiculous that a select group of people some call the puppet masters don’t expect you to believe them. Disinformation is misleading information that is true, deliberately announced publicly or leaked by a government or an intelligence agency to sow confusion and undermine credibility. Misinformation is false or inaccurate information, which is deliberately intended to deceive.
