- Actually it's long past time but having
just read the article that came from Natural News, I thought it deserves
some further comment.
- The entire article is here, and I'll quote from some
of it. (1)
- I want to add to what is said, in part, because this
has been so long in coming, and because it gets directly to the issues
I've been writing about now for the last ten years. It's good news really
because it means that finally there will be consequences. Several people
keep trying to tell me that "we can fix this if only. . ."But
none of the answers to these questions can be avoided by just trying to
switch to another system.
- That's because we must answer for everything that we
allowed to be done to the world, under this twisted-regime that has never
believed in having to pay for anything-ever! Consequently we can't just
start-over again until we deal with this horrific mess that we have made
of the entire world. And as the saying goes, "There's no time like
- "Natural News: The difference between the Democrats
and the Republicans is that the Democrats want to spend us into oblivion
while the Republicans only want to spend us into purgatory. The idea of
actually running a balanced budget has never seriously occurred to either
party. Government, after all, increases its popularity by confiscating
money from some people and redistributing it to other people while keeping
at least half of all that money for itself.
- kirwan: Which is why both political parties have been
useless to ordinary people for the last fifty years; in fact they have
been our worst enemies since the end of WWII.
- "The whole fiasco became perfectly clear over the
last few hours when, after days of intense haggling and late-night negotiation
sessions, the Republicans and Democrats suddenly came to an agreement that
would keep the government up and running for another week. And what does
that agreement entail? Drop-in-the-bucket cuts of a mere $38.5 billion(http://www.nytimes.com/2011/04/09/u...)
out of a federal budget that has now ballooned to over $6 trillion dollars
for 2011 (http://www.usgovernmentspending.com...).
- The federal deficit for 2011 alone will be $1.6 trillion.
To put all this in perspective, if federal spending for 2011 were the length
of a football field, the $38.5 billion in budget cuts amount to less than
two linear feet. It's sort of like saying we need to score a touchdown
in order to save America, but the best the Republicans and Democrats can
negotiate is starting us out on the one yard line in our own back field!
(To use a sports metaphor...)
- Here's another way to look at it."
- "Imagine, if you will, that you run a household
which earns $5,000 a month in income. But you spend $15,000 a month on
your credit cards. And you've been doing it for 20 years. So you now have
a multi-million-dollar debt burden with compounding interest. Things are
spinning wildly out of control. Something must be done!
- So you convene an "emergency spending cut"
meeting with your family members, and you explain that if you don't cut
spending, your family will go bankrupt and you'll have to sell your home
and all your possessions. Your family members meet for days on end, discussing
the problem and staying up late into the night to try to cut your spending.
They negotiate and bargain, but everybody is convinced their own spending
is crucial for the survival of the family.
- Somehow, a difficult negotiation eventually leads to
an agreement. We will cut spending! And how much spending will we cut?
A whopping $96 a month! So now, instead of spending $15,000 a month that
you don't have, you're "only" spending $14,904 that you don't
have! Amazing! We're cutting our spending!
- Are you now "saved" from your debt? Of course
not! You're still headed to the same financial collapse, but only at an
insignificantly smaller rate of speed. These numbers are roughly proportional
to what has just been negotiated in Washington, by the way. Can you see
how utterly useless these so-called "cuts" really are in tackling
the exploding national debt?
- The whole idiotic fiasco is shameful beyond belief. What's
most shocking is that in an age when Big Government is spending us all
into economic ruin, even the "cut Big Government" Republicans
can only walk out of the room with a scant $38.5 billion in reductions.
And they call it a victory.
- And if you can believe this, President Obama actually
called it the "the biggest annual spending cut in history." (http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/us_spend...)
- Seriously. Do these jokers think we are all complete
- kirwan: YES and we have proven them correct in
every assumption they have made about our stupidity, our willful blindness,
our combined arrogance and personal greed to the distraction of all else.
- "Why we must start cutting trillions from federal
spending. Folks, let me lay it out straight for you: If we don't start
cutting government spending by the TRILLIONS, the United States of America
is financially doomed. To have any hope of long-term financial sustainability,
we need to cut about 80% of federal spending right now and get government
down around $1 trillion a year in total spending. At that size, we could
actually start paying back our national debt and get back in control of
our own financial destiny.
- kirwan: We could start by implementing Executive Order
11110 that would eliminate the massive amount of interest we pay daily
to the Federal Reserve on every federal dollar they print. And we could
follow that by dissolving the charter for the FED that illegally gave this
power to the FED in the first place. All those dollars that we pay directly
to the FED (income taxes) goes straight into their profit column: not one
dime goes to anything else. Arron Russo died shortly after making this
film. Check it out for yourself. (2)
- But of course, that would be impossible because people
expect government to deliver all these "essential government services"
-- even if it means going broke in the process and shifting all the debt
to the next generation of taxpaying suckers. That's the plan of the Democrats,
by the way: Spend as much as possible and pretend the laws of economics
no longer apply. Or just hope the next generation will somehow figure out
a way to pay for it...
- kirwan: Except that we are out of time and the thugs
will soon be standing at our doors, and taking our bank accounts because
we're no longer worth investing in-anymore. . .
- Are These Services Really Essential? "I'm fascinated
by the mainstream media coverage of this pending government shutdown. One
prominent online newspaper says it would halt "essential government
services" such as sending out tax refund checks. Of course, they completely
fail to point out that if the government wasn't confiscating a portion
of your salary in the first place, you wouldn't have to wait on them to
send you back the money you already earned.
- But that's the question, really: What are "essential
government services?" Aside from defending our shores anddelivering
the mail there isn't much the federal government should really do except
get out of our way and stop interfering into the lives of the American
people who are trying to earn an honest living. Sure, I can see legitimate
arguments for environmental controls on companies and the regulation of
medicines, but if you really look at what that intention has turned into
these days, government regulators have all become the marketing branches
of the very industries they were supposed to regulate.
- kirwan: All these add-on's by way of regulations and
micro-managing of the entire society's choices when it comes to living
have been not just non-essential, most of them are as illegal as they are
unwelcome. This government was never designed to be a stand in "Nanny"
that should configure the lives of every person in this society. And the
money this COSTS is astronomical as well as illegal. It should all be trashed,
- The FDA, for example, is really Big Pharma's P.R. department.
The USDA is Big Ag's marketing branch. The DEA eliminate street drugs so
that the drug companies can sell the exact same chemicals to children at
monopoly prices (ADHD drugs are "speed"). The CDC is a total
pharmaceutical sellout that pushes vaccines instead of real science. In
nearly every case, the public would actually be better off without these
so-called "regulators" which are actually just enforcers of the
corporate-controlled monopoly state.
- kirwan: Actually the DEA regulates and distributes illegal
drugs throughout the country, the only arrests they make are when competitors
try and move in on their turf. Part of the reason we're in Afghanistan
is for the Poppy-crop that becomes Heroin for all of Europe-and you may
have noticed that despite the war we do not seem interested in ever damaging
those Poppy fields at all. The price of the entire War-on-Drugs is astronomical;
because if we do not maintain the "illegal-status" of these drugs
they would not bring in the massive profits which they create now, mostly
for Black-Ops operations.
- "The Government Health Care Disaster
- So what else does government do that actually helps anybody?
It hands out health care services, people say, under Medicare and Medicaid.
And yet it is precisely Big Government that prevents people from accessing
cheaper, safer natural health alternatives that would eliminate up to 80%
of the cancers in this country in the first place. Government is standing
in the way of sensible disease prevention solutions that exist right now
but cannot be honestly marketed because the FDA and FTC threaten anyone
who makes a disease treatment claim for any natural product -- even if
that claim is scientifically true and validated! (http://www.naturalnews.com/032002_f...)
- When it comes to health, make no mistake: Government
isn't handing out health care; it's handing out disease and suffering while
protecting the pharmaceutical monopoly that denies lasting health to the
- kirwan: Absolutely TRUE. Medicine and "Health Care"
have been turned from "do no harm" to 'make tons of money."Everything
including your health has become nothing but a business: Several businesses
in one, thanks to government corruption and outrageous greed. Insurance
companies, those hangers on to actual health are responsible for a huge
number of deaths every month, just because of the way "insurance"
(EXTORTION) is configured. Yet the government refuses to even hear the
complaints; just as it refuses to even consider the Public Option which
would combine real care with massive savings to the public and the government.
- "The USDA, meanwhile, actually spends taxpayer money
committing the mass murder of animals under a program called "Bye-Bye
Blackbird." (http://www.naturalnews.com/031076_U...). Under this program,
taxpayer money is used to poison and kill millions of birds, geese, beavers,
foxes, mountain lions, wolves and many other animals (http://www.naturalnews.com/031084_b...).
How's that for taxpayer dollars being put to a good use?
- Of course, most of the money Big Government deals with
actually ends up in the hands of the rich Wall Street banksters. Remember
the first $1 trillion bailout to the rich, wealthy elite in Washington?
And then remember thesecond trillion-dollar bailout? A third is no-doubt
on the way.
- kirwan: The actual DEBT is in excess of $1.2 Quadrillion.
There is no way on earth that anyone is going to pay that off: We must
return it to those that created it and let them go bankrupt: That would
end that nightmare and rid us of a whole lot of very unsavory people-forever.
- You see, government is primarily in the business of protecting
its corporate buddies while screwing over the American people. That's why
the government had no problem whatsoever coming up with a trillion dollars
to hand out to a very tiny group of wealthy elite bankers while pretending
that it still needs to tax the people to raise the funds to operate."
- kirwan: And they got away with it because "We didn't
want to know."
- "Don't we need members of Congress So what about
government representing the People? Isn't it important that we have Senators
and Congressmen to make our laws and run our government? C'mon people,
wake up! "You're adults!" as Gerald Celente says (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rUX-...).
Do we really need these people in Washington -- most of whom are complete
corporate sellouts -- telling us what to do?"
- kirwan: NO we don't they only serve the multinational
corporations, most of which are larger than most nation-states and they
also serve the Billionaires on occasion, because the millionaires have
become to numerous to bother with.
- "Of course not. If the entire U.S. Congress were
disbanded tomorrow, and we all just voted directly on the laws of the land,
it would immediately end all the corporate lobbying, corruption and bribery
of the lawmakers. A direct democracy would eliminate the Congress and simply
allow the People to vote on the laws themselves. But of course Congress
will never allow that to happen because the No. 1 mission of every government
body is to protect its own power."
- kirwan: Of course we would need to outlaw voting machines
and force everyone to vote which given the circumstances might actually
result in real elections. We would also need to do away entirely with the
gerrymandered political districts, and just lay a plain grid across the
entire nation and let every politician have to deal with that. And if we
would set an example by stripping at least half the current government
of its political-privileges of office and put them in jail for their crimes:
Then we might get real people to take their places.
- "That's the whole story with the TSA, the federal
agency that's now reaching down your pants at the airport. In just a few
years, it grew from less than 200 employees to over 60,000. And now TSA
agents are the new Nazi police of America, planting fake bags of cocaine
in your luggage (http://www.naturalnews.com/030302_T...), sexually molesting
little children and pretending to be making air travel "safe"
while, in actuality, they consistently fail to detect even large guns that
are carried right onto airplanes (http://abcnews.go.com/Blotter/loade...)."
- kirwan: These creatures are just thugs, pretend security
forces that have an IQ that equates with their shoe size; and half of them
are criminals themselves. That continuing crime ought to be the first thing
eliminated and the money paid to that Israeli-spy Chertoff ought to be
seized by the US Treasury for the Fraud that it was complicit in creating
supposedly for "national security; while it was in fact going
to line the pockets of a few, very arrogant traitors, inside the US government.
- "Protecting Our Shores all the way over to their
shores. And what about wars? Well, most people would agree the government
has at least ONE job: To protect our shores. But all the way to the shores
of Tripoli? "Protecting our shores" does not mean "bombing
Libya" and then claiming it's some sort of "humanitarian mission"
(a total lie, of course). Protecting our shores means keeping invaders
off our land. And yet by running these insane imperialist wars in Afghanistan,
Iraq and Libya, the U.S. government is actually inviting terrorists to
recruit new members and bomb the bejeezus out of America.
- Let's face it: If you really want terrorists to hate
America, just go out and provoke them first. Sure enough, they'll target
you for revenge. And then when we're attacked with a dirty bomb nuke by
some terrorist group in the future, the President will no doubt explain
we're being attacked because "they hate our freedom." No they
don't. They hate imperialist invaders! They hate America for bombing them
first and firing depleted uranium shells into their towns and villages,
releasing deadly radiation that will contaminate their lands for centuries
- kirwan: If we were serious we would convene an international
convention to outlaw both unchecked-Capitalism and Colonialism as the gravest
of threats to the human race. Of course we can't use either the UN or any
of its criminal affiliates to do this: because they're all in-service to
the dark side, and have been since Dirty-Harry-Truman created it.
- "Can you imagine what we, the American people, would
do if the Libyan army flew a bunch of planes over our country and started
firing DU shells into our cities? How angry would we be? How motivated
would we be to seek some sort of revenge on the Libyans? That's how they
feel about us, you see. And we provoked it."
- kirwan: That's never been likely, anymore than it was
for Saddam to have done it, but the principle is what is important. We
began this nation by slaughtering over 59 million natives in a 400 year
long war. Israel is now mimicking what we did to our own native population
inside the open-air prison that is GAZA. Colonialism is a CRIME against
nature; and must be outlawed, universally. We cannot have it both ways.
Either there is law and justice for everyone or there is none for anyone,
especially those that are claiming the right to own and direct the rest
of the planet for themselves!
- "That's why Big Government actually causes more
problems than it solves. It gets us into wars; it spends us into impossible
debt; it protects corporate monopolies and denies people access to natural
healing remedies. Government tramples on our freedoms, molests us at the
airports, and takes away our Constitutional rights. Big Government gets
us into wars we can't afford and confiscates the money we've earned before
we even get to see it."
- kirwan: All true!
- "And worst of all, Big Government can't help but
keep getting bigger. It is now so bloated and so "fiscally obese"
that even the threat of a total shutdown can only convince our lawmakers
to cut a miniscule fraction of total spending -- an amount that will make
virtually no difference whatsoever in the fast-approaching financial bankruptcy
of the U.S. government.
- Mark my words, folks: The U.S. government will never
get its debt under control. And that means it can only be headed toward
one thing: A total debt blowout ending in financial collapse. Because while
you can mock the laws of compounding interest for a while, you cannot alter
them. No government can spend its way out of debt, no matter how much political
spin is applied by the White House."
- kirwan: In a nutshell this is the shape of the problem
we're in right now, with less than a week to go until this artificial Piñata
explodes all over the country. But it is not only this that we need to
concern ourselves with. We have the continuing radiation on several levels
to contend with that will only worsen the longer it goes on; and the longer
that the world delays taking charge of the Japanese catastrophe, in order
to spare the rest of the world from even greater contamination. Then of
course we have our own nuclear problems that will very soon be coming on
line in the Midwest and potentially in Yellowstone, as well as the entire
Western shore of the continent. It seems that the Yellowstone problem might
be much larger than previously admitted to. New data shows its caldera
to be about 410 miles across; and with something that huge, we won't have
to worry about the massive failure of government because the sunlight will
beblocked from reaching the earth: and everyone will suffer immediately
from that global screw-up-because we could have done a lot to relieve the
pressure on that potential volcano while we supplied ourselves with huge
amounts of nearly free energy-except that this contradicts Cheney's energy
policies that has chained the world to fossil-fuels till the end of time
- "In the new study, images of the Yellowstone plume's
electrical conductivity - generated by molten silicate rocks and hot briny
water mixed in partly molten rock - shows the conductive part of the plume
dipping more gently, at an angle of perhaps 40 degrees to the west, and
extending perhaps 400 miles from east to west." (3)
- The time to not only think but to speak is here and now.
Because we have allowed all this to get completely out-of-hand; and the
only ones that can DO anything about any of it, is US. it's not as if you
haven't had plenty of warnings by thousands of writers and artists as well
as filmmakers-now it really is UP TO YOU!
