Obamacare’s Christmas Surprise On December 25th: The Government Will Choose Your Plan, Perhaps Limit Access To Your Doctor, And Ultimately Make The Decision On What Is “Best” For You.

If you like your health care plan, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has a Christmas surprise for you! When will this new present arrive? December 25th.

In an ongoing effort to keep Obamacare numbers elevated, CMS has embarked on the next step of its government takeover of healthcare.

It seems CMS is taking a page from Jonathan Gruber’s book; rather than allowing the “stupid” masses to make a decision […]

Germany Moving Away From The West, Looks East… Just Like Jim Willie Has Been Saying For A While…. Next Comes The Break Up Of NATO

Leaving the West Behind

Germany Looks East

Russia’s annexation of Crimea in March 2014 was a strategic shock for Germany. Suddenly, Russian aggression threatened the European security order that Germany had taken for granted since the end of the Cold War. Berlin had spent two decades trying to strengthen political and economic ties with Moscow, but Russia’s actions in Ukraine suggested that the Kremlin was no longer interested in a partnership […]

Why do we believe, when the government lies to us so often? When we change, the government also will change.

by Editor of the Fabius Maximus website

Summary: Our leaders lie to us because they can, because we don’t hold them to a higher standard. This breaks from American’s wild west traditions, where a man’s background was unknown but his reputation was everything. This post lists five of the most outrageous US government lies since WWII. A complete list would require you to spend all day reading it. When we no […]

Can The ROTHSCHILD Plan To ENSLAVE HUMANITY Be Stopped? — Michael Noonan

from SGT Report.com:

Our friend Michael Noonan from Edge Trader Plus joins us to discuss the stark economic reality humanity is facing under the iron fist rule of the Rothschild International banking SYSTEM of total control. And despite the inevitable future collapse of the Dollar and the consequent end of U.S. world hegemony, according to Michael, the chances of toppling the Rothschild’s from their seat of world power appear to be […]

Not just the United States – Bankers are now in control of almost every country in the world. However, most people have no idea.

by onpoint

 

Approximately 3% of the population is preparing for a major event to occur within the United States.  As I read the headlines from week to week, it seems as though almost any SHTF scenario is possible in today’s day and age.  There are financial issues, geopolitical instability, peculiar changes in our natural environment (e.g. -mass animal deaths), solar weather issues, etc.  While some have absolute conviction in what they […]

Washington officially endorsed a new round of unstable mortgages. Fannie and Freddie are setting up housing market for repeat of 2008 crisis!

Nobody wants to return to the kind of risky home loans that spurred 2008’s banking collapse. Sliding back toward lax lending would be nuts.

Yet Washington officially endorsed such loans this month.

Federally controlled mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac announced they’ll back loans to low-income Americans who put just 3% down, even though such loans have a high default rate.

The risky mortgage program has the blessing of Federal Housing Finance […]

David Collum: We’re Now Stuck In A Global Game Of Tetris And 2015 Looks Like The Year It Will All Top Out

by Adam Taggart

Whether or not you’ve had time yet to plow your way through David Collum’s excellent 2014 Year in Review, our annual podcast with Dave always brings additional color to light — and this year’s is no exception.

To me, the global economic theme is existential risk. That’s a phrase I use repeatedly throughout my Year In Review. Things now seem to be coming to a head.

A metaphor that I came […]

Central Banks Secretly Controlling all Futures Prices, Destroy Our Markets & Democracy – Chris Powell

Chris Powell of the Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee (GATA) says the evidence is clear that central banks are intervening in all futures markets. Powell charges, “The documents don’t prove that any particular central bank is trading any particular futures contract on any given day, but they do show the central banks are trading secretly in all U.S. futures markets. That means our market economy has been destroyed. It really means […]

It’s WAR On The Streets Of America

By Michael Snyder

Make no mistake – there is now a state of open warfare on the streets of America.  Earlier this year it was being reported that the number of police officers killed on the job was up 40 percent in 2014, and that was before all of the civil unrest caused by the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner.  At this point, attacks on police officers are becoming […]

In case you missed it…as intended. New law lets some pension plans cut promised benefits

For some retirees, Congress has played the Grinch this holiday season.

Tucked into the federal spending bill were provisions that will allow certain struggling multi-employer pension plans to reduce benefits already being received by retirees.

The move was the result of an alarm from the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corp. that multi-employer plans covering more than 1 million participants are substantially underfunded and, without legislative changes, will probably fail. The deficit for PBGC’s […]

America’s Big Five Are Plunging the World Into Another Banking Crisis

A comeback of the pre-crisis lending practices by the world’s biggest banks could end in another banking crisis. So, what exactly are the banking policies? Radio Sputnik is discussing it with former World Bank economist Peter Koenig.

In his story titled ‘Memories of Financial Crisis Fading as Risks Rise’ an AP economics writer Paul Wiseman points to several factors which banking analysts describe […]

Chart Points To Massive Slow Down: “This Is The Biggest Collapse In The ‘Trade’ Indicator Since Records Began”

Prior to the crash of 2008 global trade was rocking. It was a boon for shipping companies around the world who are responsible for moving raw materials, commodities and consumer products from one country to another. Wall Street, of course, had devised a way to track all of this movement and often pointed to the Baltic Dry Index (BDI) as the primary indicator for health in the global […]

“In a blistering editorial published in the Monday edition of the New York Times, the editorial page editors are calling upon the Justice Department to open an investigation into the torture practices committed during the administration of President George W. Bush with an eye towards prosecuting those who “committed torture and other serious crimes,” along with former Vice President Dick Cheney and other major administration officials.”

Ticket To The White House Set To Cost At Least $1 Billion

It is set to be one of the toughest US presidential races and certainly its most expensive. With 687 days to go to election day, the 2016 campaign is already rich with storylines as candidates hone their messages and handshakes for the gruelling primary schedule ahead.

For Republicans, the field will be one of the most crowded in years, with establishment favourites such as Mr Bush and Chris Christie, the […]

Google Self-driving Car Project Seeks Partners

GOOGLE was looking for car industry partners to bring its vision of a self-driving car to market within the next five years, the head of the software giant’s autonomous-vehicle project said.

Mr Urmson said his team, in the meantime, is working with automotive suppliers to build a […]

Flu Outbreak Spreading Rapidly In U.S.

Flu season is picking up steam just in time to ruin a lot of people’s holidays. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports widespread flu activity in 29 states, primarily in the South and Midwest. That’s twice as many states as the previous week.

Most of the patients who have been hospitalized with severe cases of the flu are either very young or the very old. In recent days […]

Nebraska & Oklahoma sue Colorado over legal cannabis

The attorneys general of Nebraska and Oklahoma are asking the U.S. Supreme Court to end marijuana legalization in neighboring Colorado, predictably upsetting drug law reformers and supporters of states’ rights.

“I was just astonished,” says Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Tenn., a longtime advocate of softening federal marijuana policies. “The fact that Nebraska and Oklahoma are contiguous should not make any difference to what the state of Colorado does.”

Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt and Nebraska Attorney […]

Europeans want their gold back, and why that’s bad for the euro

Right across Europe, over the course of the last year, a series of European countries have been demanding that their gold reserves, which are often stored in different nations, are bought back home.

On the surface, that seems very odd. After all, gold GCG5, -0.09%  has no meaningful role in the financial system any more. After a two-year bear market, it is not even worth as much as it was. It […]

Obama’s ‘Propaganda’ Pushed People To ‘Hate The Police,’ Giuliani Says

 

President Obama has engaged in “propaganda” encouraging people to “hate the police,” former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R) charged a day after two New York City police officers were shot and killed in their patrol car by a man who posted anti-police messages to his social media account.

“We’ve had four months of propaganda starting with the president that everybody should hate the police,” Giuliani said during an appearance […]

Multiple Sources Indicate North Korea Will Attack the American Power Grid

by Dave Hodges

Last week, I reported that Western bankers have committed two acts of war against Russia. First, the West has driven down the price of oil to such an extent that the Russians are being forced to tap into both their gold and oil reserves to keep their economy afloat. Further, there is a direct attack upon the Ruble by the West as Russia’s financial liquidity was terminated in […]

Random Examples on Life Inside “Police State America”

by Dave Hodges

We no longer have to ask foreign refugees what it is like living inside a police state. All we have to do is to read the daily accounts of innocent Americans being abused and murdered through the excessive use of force being used by local police who have been federalized by the Department of Homeland Security.

What used to be the beacon of hope, has rapidly become the spotlight […]

New York Times on Benefits of Gold in Currency Wars

The New York Times published an important article this week in which the benefits of gold to nation states during a period of currency wars was highlighted. The article was noteworthy as the New York Times has rarely covered gold in a positive manner.

The article, entitled ‘The Golden Age’ is about the growing use of gold in geopolitical affairs. They drew attention to the gold repatriation movements in Europe and […]
