Lies and more lies from John Koskinen

John Koskinen is what is wrong with America and our government.

How could anyone with a sense of right and wrong believe anything this man says.

Stilll think there is a LEFT or RIGHT?

In case y’all poor, deluded folks who still think that there is hope for Washington D.C., specifically in the person of Ted Cruz, I’d like to go ahead and bust your little bubble – not that you won’t just blow a new one.  But, here goes.  Repeat this over and over again until you understand:

Ted Cruz’ wife, Heidi, is a Goldman Sachs executive.
Ted Cruz’ wife, Heidi, is a Goldman Sachs executive.
Ted Cruz’ wife, Heidi, is a Goldman Sachs executive.
Ted Cruz’ wife, Heidi, is a Goldman Sachs executive.
Ted Cruz’ wife, Heidi, is a Goldman Sachs executive.

A position to which she ascended immediately after coming out of the Bush-Cheney White House, specifically a seat on the National Security Council.  The same Goldman Sachs that is carrying over $48 TRILLION in derivatives exposure against an asset base of $89 Billion – levered up by a factor of over 500X.  She VOLUNTARILY associates herself with this.

No, I’m sure you’re right.  I’m sure Ted Cruz is DIFFERENT.  I’m sure that the fact his wife is a Goldman Sachs executive has NO BEARING ON ANYTHING, and that he is as pure as the wind-driven snow.

God help America.

Sad news on the elk count for the Northern Yellowstone elk herd. Anytime a leftist democrat greenie tells you how much they love nature....remind them of what they've done and continue to support.

Still thinking of buying a Chevy GM car?

GM has now recalled 70% more cares than it sold in all of 2013, and has recalled 83% more cars in the first 6 months of 2014 than it did in the entire 2008-2013 period!

Snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.........

"As Commander-in-Chief, ensuring the success of this strategy has been one of my highest national security priorities.  Last year, I announced the end to our combat mission in Iraq.  And to date, we’ve removed more than 100,000 troops.  Iraqis have taken full responsibility for their country’s security."

Think about this...........

I grew up in and around cold weather, Montana, the Dakota's, Minnesota.

Living on the Fort Berthold Indian Reservation in the mid 1960s there were days and nights the furnace never shut off.  The government house we lived in was so drafty the cold blew in 24/7.

Last winter was a nasty patch of cold weather up in that country too.  I doubt I could handle a full winter without grabbing a plane ticket somewhere warm.

Maybe there is no such thing as bad weather, just soft people.

Daily Prayer for Wall Street

"Our Fed

Who art in Manhattan

Yellen be thy name

Thy QE come

Thy print be done

By Ben as it is with Janet

Give us this day our daily 1.5 billion

And forgive us our savings

As we drown with the debtors

And lead us not into deflation

But deliver us from volatility"

Amen

Matthew 21:12 And Jesus entered the temple and drove out all those who were buying and selling in the temple, and overturned the tables of the money changers and the seats of those who were selling doves. And He said to them, "It is written, 'MY HOUSE SHALL BE CALLED A HOUSE OF PRAYER'; but you are making it a ROBBERS' DEN."

Greed is in control folks.   The Lords Prayer should be prayed daily.  We will need it.

Mary Jo White

Markets not rigged?  Markets not broken?

Givemeafuckinbreak.  Did she read Flash Boys?

Dennis Gartman on CNBC

One cliche after another.   The single best key-reverse indicator anywhere.

Judge Jeanine Pirro

What a great American!   Talk about  somebody who has their slant on America down, wow, what a breath of honesty.  Come to think of it, being fearless and educated in this country seems to be in short supply.

I have some swamp land in Florida for you too............

Over 40 years ago we landed on the moon.  We found some rocks.  We brought some rocks home with us.  There is no need to go back for more rocks.  Now we have the choir wanting to piss away more taxpayer money on heading off to Mars.

 A manned mission to Mars, specifically the Martian surface, is the most distant and difficult goal for astronauts that is still feasibly attainable within the foreseeable future, according to the nearly 300-page report by the National Research Council's Committee on Human Spaceflight. The report, entitled "Pathways to Exploration: Rationales and Approaches for a U.S. Program of Human Space Exploration," was released Wednesday, June 4.
 
The NRC committee found that in order to reach the Red Planet, NASA's current budget-driven, capability-based exploration strategy needs to be replaced by one that is guided forward by interim destinations, including possibly the moon. NASA is currently pursuing a path to Mars that omits a return to the lunar surface in favor of sending astronauts to a redirected asteroid by 2025, followed by sending a crew to orbit Mars by the mid-2030s.

You simply can't make this shit up...............

On the day in which the ECB for the first time ever announced negative deposit rates, as in pay the bank holding the deposit, the ex-Goldman head of the ECB, Mario Draghi just confirmed he has a career in comedy when this monetary and political circus finally comes crashing down.

"It's completely wrong to suggest we want to expropriate savers" - Mario Draghi

Greed in America

The problem in a representative democracy is that for every instance of waste, graft or fraud there is a  taxpayer footing the bill for somebody's fat paycheck or government contract. Promising good governance guarantees a losing campaign for public office.  If you disagree feel free to expound on your analysis.  Be cogent and concise please.

To avoid the political pain that would result from trimming the waste and fraud, the state prints money to keep the swag flowing. Since the state can't create real wealth, it prints claims on wealth and passes off the paper as "money."

The only thing that is infinite about the state is the hubris of those at the controls and the narrow self-interest of those at its capacious feeding trough.

The fourth and fifth branches of government are of course the lobbyists and the military/industrial complex, they run things from the Pentagon to European junkets.   It is a complex web of payola, insider dealing, West Point connections, liberal spending, geez, I just have to quit there, there isn't an end to it.  The only common denominator of the entire mess is that it is all financed with my tax payments.

Obama Math

We have a new common core math issue to address.

Obama says that 5 now equals 1.

These 5 for an Army private who walked to the Taliban.


Five big, nasty predators for a single sheep.   You simply can't make this up.

Navajo Nation v. United States

The Navajo understood early on how they were being hoodwinked out of billions by their overlord.   Funny how that works.    A sovereign that has trust responsibility totally fails in it's mission to provide trust and accountability to a Native nation.

Check this settlement.   Easy to believe, just hard to swallow.

On May 30, 2014, the Navajo Nation Council approved a $554 million settlement that the tribe reached with the United States for its historical mismanagement of the tribe’s trust fund assets. It is the largest trust mismanagement settlement ever obtained by a single tribe against the U.S. 

The settlement is the culmination of years of negotiation between the Navajo Nation and the U.S. after the Navajo Nation sued the U.S. Department of Interior in 2006 for breaching its trust obligations to the tribe in failing to adequately manage, invest and account for tribal trust funds and resources and maximize the related trust income. Claims under the lawsuit dated back to 1946.

Internally, the Navajo Nation established the Historical Trust Asset Mismanagement Litigation Trust Fund, which helped finance the lawsuit. The tribe also established the Trust Management Litigation Taskforce comprised of eight council delegates to guide the Navajo Nation Department of Justice and the tribe’s outside counsel, the BuckleySandler LLP firm and co-counsel the Nordhaus Law Firm, during the litigation. 

The settlement will be executed and payment made to the Navajo Nation once Navajo Nation President Ben Shelly and the U.S. Departments of Justice, Interior and Treasury provide a final review and approval of the terms of the agreement.

Endless White House blather............

I know a small number of Americans who voted for Obama.  They aren't bad people.

Lately they have been laying low on their Obama chatter and their misguided vote.

They understand this is the worst President in the entire history of our country.
