Here's a big what if....
Does anyone remember the movie "Deep Impact". Morgan Freeman(President for those that haven't seen it) says "we've spent more money than we can hide" in preperation for the big event, Comet strike. Now what if all the FEMA camps, the posturing over the Arctic, the financial crisis and all the wars around the planet are leading up to 2012.
Now what if 2012 will really be as bad as some have predicted? What if we do face a geographic pole shift changing the Earth's tilt? What better way than a contrived financial crisis to hide trillions of dollars in spending preparing in secret a survival plan. Realisticaly, a country the size of the US could only really maybe support 5-10% of the population during a huge cataclysmic event.
Just throwing it out there? The whole thing has stunk since day one. One day we're doing great with no end insight. Next day everthings going to hell. Always seemed very orchastrated to me.

I really really get P#ssed off when I read things like. The secret is too big to be revealed. Trust me for us tax payers there’s nothing they can tell us that’ll shock us. Sure it’ll get a lot of people into trouble. You know the rich and their buddies. Who cares if the system crashes, then crash it must be. It’ll come back a better place hopefully with no Fed.
So in fear of a crash or whatever we must accept that these guys will continue doing “dirty” deals. We must work for a living and they can wheel, deal and steel. Yeah Right.
So my point is that the actual problem of crisis is not the banks, but the total collapse of trade balance,
A treaty can be nullified by a statute passed by the U.S. Congress (or by a sovereign State or States if Congress refuses to do so), when the State deems a treaty the performance of a treaty is self-destructive. The law of self-preservation overrules the law of obligation in others.
"This [Supreme] Court has regularly and uniformly recognized the supremacy of the Constitution over a treaty." - Reid v. Covert, October 1956, 354 U.S. 1, at pg 17.
This case involved the question: Does the NATO Status of Forces Agreement (treaty) supersede the U.S. Constitution? Keep reading.
The Reid Court (U.S. Supreme Court) held in their Opinion that,
"... No agreement with a foreign nation can confer power on the Congress, or any other branch of government, which is free from the restraints of the Constitution. Article VI, the Supremacy clause of the Constitution declares, "This Constitution and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof; and all the Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land...’
"There is nothing in this language which intimates that treaties and laws enacted pursuant to them do not have to comply with the provisions of the Constitution nor is there anything in the debates which accompanied the drafting and ratification which even suggest such a result...
"It would be manifestly contrary to the objectives of those who created the Constitution, as well as those who were responsible for the Bill of Rights – let alone alien to our entire constitutional history and tradition – to construe Article VI as permitting the United States to exercise power UNDER an international agreement, without observing constitutional prohibitions. (See: Elliot’s Debates 1836 ed. – pgs 500-519).
"In effect, such construction would permit amendment of that document in a manner not sanctioned by Article V. The prohibitions of the Constitution were designed to apply to all branches of the National Government and they cannot be nullified by the Executive or by the Executive and Senate combined."
Did you understand what the Supreme Court said here? No Executive Order, Presidential Directive, Executive Agreement, no NAFTA, GATT/WTO agreement/treaty, passed by ANYONE, can supersede the Constitution. FACT. No question! www.sweetliberty.org...
.....Guangdong Province now has a booming economy and accounts for half of China's GDP.
But it is an economy powered by millions of migrant workers who are desperate enough to accept long hours, low pay and dangerous conditions because the alternatives back home are worse..... news.bbc.co.uk...
American importers have long answered criticism of conditions at their Chinese suppliers with labor rules and inspections. But many factories have just gotten better at concealing abuses....
Tang learned that auditors from Wal-Mart, Beifa's biggest customer, were about to inspect labor conditions at the factory... Wal-Mart had already on three occasions caught Beifa paying.. less than China's minimum wage,.. a fourth offense would end the relationship.
Help arrived suddenly...The caller said he was with Shanghai Corporate Responsibility Management & Consulting Co., and for a $5,000 fee, he'd take care of Tang's Wal-Mart problem...
Lai provided advice on how to create fake but authentic-looking records and suggested that Beifa hustle any workers with grievances out of the factory on the day of the audit,
In this shifting, often murky environment, labor auditing has mushroomed into a multimillion-dollar industry. Internal corporate investigators and such global auditing agencies as Cal Safety Compliance, sgs of Switzerland, and Bureau Veritas of France operate a convoluted and uncoordinated oversight system. They follow varying corporate codes of conduct, resulting in some big Chinese factories having to post seven or eight different sets of rules. Some factories receive almost daily visits from inspection teams demanding payroll and production records, facility tours, and interviews with managers and workers. "McDonald's (MCD ), Walt Disney, (DIS ) and Wal-Mart are doing thousands of audits a year that are not harmonized," says van Heerden of Fair Labor. Among factory managers, "audit fatigue sets in," he says.
Some companies that thought they were making dramatic progress are discovering otherwise. A study commissioned by Nike last year covered 569 factories it uses in China and around the world that employ more than 300,000 workers. It found labor-code violations in every single one. Some factories "hide their work practices by maintaining two or even three sets of books," by coaching workers to "mislead auditors about their work hours, and by sending portions of production to unauthorized contractors where we have no oversight," the Nike study found.
HOLY # IF THIS IS REAL!!!
John W. Bush, Denton Guthrie, Kynaston Perrierra, Otto Starzman and Donald L. Miller, working under Kamarulzaman Bin Annuar in a Nevada corporation known as Global Petroleum Investments, United Kingdom of Atlantis, along with Jerry Hansard, and K. Mack Robinson of Jackson, Mississippi, embezzled Durham Trust and the people of the United States of America, out of the payment of the alleged national debt and who has also prevented the lawful return -- marked PAID IN FULL -- of hundreds of thousands of mortgages held by U.S. Citizens and stored by the House Rothschild in the City of London and in France. This certainly indicates that they are material witnesses to the ill-gotten proceeds of the embezzlement of the $6.5T payment of the U.S. debt, in the Durham Trust's debt swap/debt conversion of May 21, 2003.
