The Great Reset

Show of hands. Everyone ready to impeach ObamaNation yet? There is no time “to wait” for an election or a conference or some infernal Politburo Super Congressional Committee. Seize the day or suffer the consequences. Speak up or forever hold your peace. We can no longer afford the luxury of Rule By Kaskistocracy!


Tantalizing Excerpt:

The Shape of Things To Come (July 8, 2011)

The Great Reset could take many forms. The only certain thing is that today’s profound political disunity and our destabilizing financial Plutocracy will force a crisis.

Today we have several types of political disunity. Superficially, the two “political theater” wings of the Demopublicans stage a bitter partisan war over whose vision of the U.S. as a “Plutocracy, but with benefits” holds an increasingly enfeebled political power.

The real disunity is between a doomed Status Quo and those willing to deal with reality. Right now those willing to deal with reality are few, but they have the distinct advantage of reality on their side, while the Status Quo has only propaganda, artifice, phony political theater and empty promises.

Anthony Martin offers his analysis of Black Monday:


Tantalizing Excerpt:

America could well be headed for a dreaded ‘black Monday’ on August 8. The term ‘black Monday’ was coined to denote a precipitous drop in the stock market. Today, however, the stock market is not always an accurate gauge of the health of the economy, particularly when super-billionaires such as George Soros bet on plunges in the market and invest their money accordingly. Thus, black Moday on August 8 may or may not involve a steep decline in stocks, although many believe that is precisely what will occur.

A more realistic scenario would involve the following:

1. The costs of auto loans, mortgages, student loans, and other types of lending will increase dramatically, meaning that interest rates on these loans will rise. Even a rise of half a percentage point in the interest rate would mean mortgage rates on a home costing $175,000 will increase on average by $19,000 dollars.

2. The costs for goods and services will rise.

Economic Collapse & Security: I Am Your Worst Nightmare

By Jeff T.

I am the leader of a band of 8-to-12 looters. I have some basic military training. We move from place to place like locusts devouring everything in our path. My group is armed with light weapons and can develop and follow simple plans of attack. We take what we want by force of arms. We prefer none of our victims survive because that could cause problems for us in the future. It has been six months since the grid went down. You and the other five members of your party have settled into what may be a long grinding existence. The every day tasks of growing and gathering have now become routine. The news from the outside is extremely limited but you don’t really miss it much. Life is simple but physically demanding.

Although things may seem stable you will need to keep your team focused and alert. This is your first and most important layer of defense. You should hold an immediate reaction drill once per week. Keep things simple. Practice a specific response to such threats as injury, fire, attack and evacuation. Despite the challenges you must maintain contact with those around you such as neighbors for vital clues that trouble is brewing. Regular monitoring the radio will be critical in providing an early warning of trouble. You may be able to safely interview refugees with risking your party. Keep in mind the information you get from them may not always be reliable.

While you have been farming I have been learning the best tactics to employ to seize your property and your goods. I have been refining them since we hit the road right after the lights went out. I have conducted eight “hits” so far and have been successful seven times. Here are some of my “lessons learned”.

Debt Ceiling Fight And Guns

Hardly noticed or reported elsewhere, Gunowners of America has this analysis of the link between gunowners and the debt ceiling fight:


* Obama has begun to implement the first stages of ObamaCare to create a national medical database, which would be trolled by ATF to suspend the gun rights of tens of millions of Americans;

* ATF used its Fast and Furious operation (funded with $10 million from the stimulus bill) to put guns in the hands of Mexican drug cartels, ostensibly for the purpose of passing more gun control in Washington;

* ATF has moved forward on its illegal regulations to require the registry of multiple sales of many long guns; and

* ATF has moved forward on its efforts to impose an import ban on shotguns.

Now the bill has come due, and Barack Obama is trying to borrow $2 trillion to pay for his anti-gun agenda.

He cannot be allowed to succeed, unless the deal blocks the $2 trillion from being used to pursue ObamaCare and an anti-gun agenda.

In this respect, Congressman and presidential candidate Michele Bachmann (R-MN) has been a true hero. She has stood up, frequently alone, to oppose any debt limit deal that would allow the money to be used to implement the anti-gun ObamaCare law. This is a critical bottom line for gun owners.

Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) has also spoken out against a deal to raise the debt limit, spearheading a drive that gets other congressmen to sign a “Cut, Cap, and Balance” pledge.

The bottom line is this: The U.S. isn’t going to default on its debt, because, without borrowing a penny, federal tax income will be over ten times the amount necessary to pay interest on the debt. Similarly, there will be enough money to pay social security, Medicare, defense, and veterans.

But, if the debt limit is not renewed, there will not be enough money for ObamaCare and anti-gun regulations. And, frankly, this means that Republicans negotiating with Barack Obama have all the cards in their hands.

For them to bungle these negotiations and allow Obama to borrow in order to fund ObamaCare would be disastrous.

ACTION: Contact your congressman. Demand that he or she votes to cut spending by defunding anti-gun ObamaCare.


Unrestricted Warfare: Weaponized Financial Markets

It is said by the knowledgeable: “In peacetime Military Strategists preoccupy themselves fighting future battles with yesterday’s weapons and tactics”.

In a sober reminder of the danger of such an outlook Anthony Martin at Conservative Examiner has commentary about Kevin Freeman’s 2009 Wargame Simulation which postulated a military attack on the United States through deliberate manipulation of financial markets. CLICK LINK HERE

While there is no conclusive proof any actual attack occurred there is no doubt the United States is exceptionally vulnerable to such an assault and completely unaware of the threat.

In a CNBC interview (CLICK LINK HERE) Mr. Freeman summarized the import of a Chinese Military Study (CLICK LINK HERE) entitled “Unrestricted Warfare” thus:

Clowns,Jokers And Fools


Liberty Sphere (CLICK HERE) and Free Republic (CLICK HERE) have already pointed to this article by Karl Denninger.

It is hard to decide which alarms me more: that the most impassioned call to arms comes not from RKBAians but from an Investment Management Analyst or that few RKBAians even acknowledge the imminent threat as it takes shape before our eyes.

The Three Percenters will say we need more time “to get ready”. Clock is ticking down folks, if you are not ready now how will you ever be ready when it is too late?

So I guess I am the fool-Clowns to the left of me, Jokers to the right….stuck in the middle again!

Tantalizing excerpt:
Does America still truly have the capacity, as a people, as a nation, to get angry? To demand redress of grievance? To call, support, and honor a general strike? To take up, keep and bear arms not to commit violence but to stand shoulder-to-shoulder as our Constitution recognizes as our God-given right to prevent violence against not only ourselves but our neighbors – any and all of them? To peacefully occupy The Capitol and shut it down – not to loot, pillage or destroy, but to force the cessation of all commerce in an unmistakable and singular statement: This far you have gone, and you shall take not one step further until each and every guilty man and woman is under indictment, the institutions and businesses responsible are closed, and the ill-gotten gains returned.

Do we still have what it takes to make that happen? Do we have any more Rosa Parks’ in America? Any Dr. Kings?

Or is all we have left in us a descent into random lawlessness – civil unrest, or even full-scale riots where the looting and burning is not of the banks and others who have robbed America, but of the random store-owner, house or car – simply because it’s there?

I fear for my nation and her future.

I fear we have too few men like that gentleman in Arizona and too many muggers in Lakeview.


Sears Foreshadows The Credit Storm Ahead

Wow! Welcome back Carter (Era Credit Crunch)!

This came in the mail today.

All business, they did not even bother to include it in a monthly statement. It came all by it’s lonesome in a postcard size folded pamphlet.

I have had a Sears Credit Card for at least 25 years with never a balance of more than a few thousand dollars and a current balance of a couple hundred dollars.

They have always been good to me with interest rates as low as 3.99 percent during the go-go years (not a teaser, but a genuine APR).

Apparently they do not qualify for an ObamaNation Bailout.

Lock and load folks, this is just the beginning of Obamageddon.

The floggings will continue until morale improves.

August 13,1981 President Reagan Signs The Biggest Tax Cut In History


It was called the Economic Recovery Tax Act of 1981 and for 20 years it fueled a prosperous and growing economy.

Under the radar, the Clintonistas, the Bolshevik Left and now ObamaNation seek to convert that prosperity into permanent penury.

President Obama, tear down this tyranny!

These bills that I’m about to sign — not every page — this is the budget bill, and this is the tax program — but I think they represent a turnaround of almost a half a century of a course this country’s been on and mark an end to the excessive growth in government bureaucracy, government spending, government taxing.

And we’re indebted for all of this — I can’t speak too highly of the leadership, Republican leadership in the Congress and of those Democrats who so courageously joined in and made both of these truly bipartisan programs. But I think in reality, the real credit goes to the people of the United States who finally made it plain that they wanted a change and made it clear in Congress and spoke with a more authoritative voice than some of the special interest groups that they wanted these changes in government.

This represents $130 billion in savings over the next 3 years. This represents $750 billion in tax cuts over the next 5 years. And this is only the beginning, because from here on now we are going to have to implement all of these, and it’s going to be a job to make this whole turnaround work. It’s going to be the number one priority — or continue to be the number one priority of our administration.


Civilization Fail

Wikipedia Article Excerpt

Where have all the Xhosa gone? Long time passing….Where have all the Xhosa gone? Long time ago….

From the Hawaii Reporter (deleted for some reason) comes this 19th Century cautionary tale.

Is it possible for an entire civilization to go completely, utterly insane? Maybe so.

Bizarre Tale Excerpt:

Death of a Civilization
By David Deming, 5/28/2009 11:07:08 AM

In April of 1856, a fifteen-year-old girl named Nongqawuse heard a voice telling her that the Xhosa must kill all their cattle, stop cultivating their fields, and destroy their stores of grain and food.
