Greg’s Newsletter, Keeping the American Middle Class Informed / February 04, 2009

February 4, 2009

While I was putting together a newsletter, I ran across this article and had to send it out to everyone immediately to give you an idea how creative the American people are in these times of economic turmoil.

We all know the Federal Reserve controls our monetary system and also know they are a private bank, not part of the Federal Government. Well some folks have decided to take the momentary system into their own hands and the ingenuity of our people once again show us, when things are bad a new direction is the way to get where we need to go.

I just love our people’s creativity and intuitiveness.

Nearing the end of Our Constitutional Republic / Mo Kiah / January 30, 2009

January 30, 2009

Some misconceptions need to be cleared up. First…The United States government is a Constitutional Republic; the founders knew of the detrimental results created by Democracies and Monarchies.

Benjamin Franklin quote… “Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. A Republic is a well armed lamb contesting the vote.”

In other words, the rule of law accompanied by strong compliance with the Constitution most effectively represents “The People” and puts checks and balances on our three levels of federal government to prevent tyranny from showing its power-hungry teeth and treating the self-governed as red-headed-terrorist-stepchildren.

Secondly… Congress receives 99% of bills or acts from their special interests. Congress doesn’t write bills any more (with the exception of Ron Paul and possibly a few others). They are dictated to by greedy, power-hungry fascist corporate lobbyists; Congress takes the draft, fiddles with it, adds pork to it, then they vote on it. End result? We get screwed again.

If anybody believes that a bailout “For The People” is what’s needed to set this country back on its correct path, well, it ain’t gonna happen. Stealing our compensation for services rendered to our employers…then turning around to redistribute the compensation to other people or entities is theft! I don’t like it when our employees steal from “We The People” to bailout some sorry-ass, incompetent entity. It degrades our country, our way of life, threatens freedom and liberty of the people. It also leads to an ever decreasing value of our dollar’s purchasing power at the expense of us, our children and grandchildren.

This bailout scenario is being pursued to usher in a global monetary system that will automatically justify the necessity for a global government. This incremental process has been in the works for over one hundred years. And unfortunately, it looks like everything is right on schedule. Do a little research on “Global Government”, “Central Banks” or “Global Monetary System” and see what results you retrieve.

These bailouts and the accompanying smoke and mirrors (by the way, the mirrors are fading to clear glass) being used to justify the repair of a doomed monetary system are no more than the continuation of an effort to crush the American self-governing process. I don’t take it lightly and “I will not go quietly.”

Democracy = Mob Rule, Constitutional Republic = Rule of law. The main problem is getting the lobbyists out of Washington. There’s 41,000 of them, so we have our work cut out for us.

I have been trying to keep an eye on what is going to be proposed when the new administration takes over the government and this article will give you some idea of what we are going to be seeing. This is another reason why states rights are so important, Washington cares very little about what individual states want or need, they just broad brush their agendas on the entire country, it is just more centralization of our national government.

http://www.govtrack.us/congress/billtext.xpd?bill=h111-45

This is not just one side of the isle either, an example of that was the passage of the Patriot Act which was the most egregious attack on our Constitutional freedoms, ever. Then there was the relaxation and omissions of the regulations that controlled our financial system which the Republicans introduced and passed and a Democratic President signed into law. Then there was NAFTA which the Republicans and Democrats introduced and signed into law by a Democratic President which in turn gave the green light to ship hundreds of thousands of jobs outside the country, with very little return for the work force in this country.

Are you getting the jest of our current Federal Government, not only centralizing more and more of the government but also disregarding what is good for the general population for the benefit of the lobbying powers in Washington? Lobbying reform is a must and we cannot wait for the legislature to give it its just due, on their own time, because it will never happen. We must tell our elected officials we need Lobbying reform that takes out the “behind the door lobbying efforts” and have them give honest public statements on what the lobbyists are trying to obtain, for their benefit.

One final thing I haven’t mentioned lately, between 8:00am and 10:00am EST Monday thru Friday there is a talk radio show from Richmond Indiana that is probably one of the best call in shows I have ever heard. They don’t use screeners to screen out opposing views, as many of the syndicated shows do but they let you voice your opinion on what ever subject you wish. As of the last few months, obviously there have been many shows on the economy. The show is called Talk Back and the host’s name is Troy Derengowski, an excellent show host. To listen to his program go to www.930whon.com and select the “Listen Live” link and enjoy the program. He also enjoys the interaction of the listeners so give his show a call at 888-310-9466. I know it is kind of early for some of you in the Western part of our country but it truly is worth listening to and contributing to. They do not pay me for promoting his show; I just believe it is a terrific show where you can express your opinions, so it try it, I promise you, you will find it interesting and informative and they get many national experts on his show to give their expertise on what is happening in our world today.

Proposed Aggregator Bank is a Trojan Horse for the New “United States Bank” / Hugh Wood / January 19, 2009

Every time I look into this bailout fiasco, I am amazed at the things the government has done and proposes to do to strengthen the financial institutions and do very little to strengthen the individual American’s balance sheets. This new plan to create a “Bad Bank” or “Aggregator Bank” which is just another name put on a Federal program that will have the same basic agenda the first bailout was supposed to do, buying up bad assets in the financial industry. As we have seen it didn’t work and when Paulson got the green light to control the $700 billion bailout. He changed what they proposed for that money, buying bad assets, but directly injected the money into the financial system’s coffers, without buying up any bad assets or getting the credit markets to lend with a real impact on the credit crisis. In fact most of that money was used for banks and lending institutions to buy up other banks and lending institutions at bargain basement prices or just put that money into their vaults. This just further concentrates the economic power which controls the monetary policy, through lobbying, of our Federal Government.

This past week, Bernanke was suppose to appear before the Congress for questioning on where the bailout and financial status of the banking system. At the last minute he canceled going to Congress and instead went to Europe to meet with the other central bankers from around the world. By doing this he seems to be more interested in establishing the world banking system than answering to the American people what he and Paulson have been doing with the money and what this proposed new bailout bank is really all about.

After reading this article above, I have given you some of the economic power behind the governmental influence and the lobbying system this article mentions both past and present individuals that have been involved in setting monetary policy in our nation. It is quite an interesting list of groups and people.

One thing I have found studying these groups and people, many were influencing the introduction of the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act in 1999 which reduced and eliminated the regulations, which were introduced after the Great Depression through the Glass-Steagall Act of 1933. These reductions and eliminations of these regulations are what spurred the unregulated dealings in the derivatives markets (hedge funds) which in turned destroyed the housing market, followed by our total economy being affected by this self serving financial direction. Some of these are the people who created this disaster and now they are giving input how to correct it. As we have seen to this point, the only thing this bailout has been correcting is an attempt to correct the bottom lines of the financial industry, what about the American people? The trickle down effect of this bailout has not trickled down past the financial institutions and I doubt if we will see much trickle down for us from this proposed “Bad Bank”.

Finally, this article written by Professor Peter Morici – He is a Professor of International Business at the University of Maryland.  Prior to joining the University, he served as Director of Economics at the U.S. International Trade Commission.  He directed the agency’s professional economists working on ITC investigations and provided international economic policy advice to the House Ways and Means and Senate Finance Committees, U.S. Trade Representative, Council of Economic Advisors, and other government agencies.

In this article he tells us what the real unemployment numbers are and what needs to be done to begin establishing a direction to improve our nation’s economic condition. He along with others, like Ron Paul, knows what needs to be done to establish a sound recovery for the U.S. economic system with benefits for all of us not just the financially and politically well connected.
