0 AP- Reporters were assigned to Obamas book for fact checking.

Perfect example of how the press is biased and will feed you with everything you are reguritating here today. Just like a robot.

"High octane capitalism" is exactly what is wrong with America right now. It pains me to see you championing it.

What we have now is not "High octane capitalism" it is CORPORATISM. Capitalism has been dead for over one hundred years. It died the day capital "WEALTH" was replaced by banker Fiat (counterfeit) money. It died when the Government turned control of the economy over to a bunch of bankers. It died when the Committee for Economic Development (bankers), was officially established in 1942 and took over directing the USA economy from behind the scenes.

Here is just one ugly example of this ungodly amalgam of government/bankers and corporations.

A Bit of history.

This was done under Pres. Clinton BTW not Bush.
The Ag Cartel placed food on the international trading table and got the "Agreement on Agriculture," written by the VP of Cargill, ratified along with the World Trade Organization in 1995. Congress however stuck in a provision that stated US law trumped the treaty before they would consent to pass it. So in 1996 the big Ag controlled FDA/USDA changed the food regs and implemented HACCP

HACCP caused 17.9% of the small slaughter houses to close and it allowed the USDA to close its eyes to the contaminated food shipped by the big guys. If I could figure out how to do it I would post the graph I made from CDC statistics. Rockefeller controlled Organic Consumers Assoc. had the graph posted on the net but it got yanked early in the "We need a new food law" campaign.

Why was a "New Food Law" needed??? A couple of reasons.

1. To drive family farms (competition) out of business with red tape.
2. To place the blame for food contamination on farmers not the giant processors by requiring "Traceability"
3. To move complete control of food regulation from Congress and the American people to the World Trade Organization and the Ag Cartel.

The Food "Safety" Modernization Act of 2010 does all three. It was pushed through the OBAMA/Democrat Admin. during the lame duck session at the last minute before they lost control in 2011. AGAIN this can not be blamed on BUSH. Hillary Clinton was pushing for "Food Safety Reform" during her Husbands Admin! Congressman Rosa Delauro (D-Ct) sponsored the original 2009 bill HR 875.

Here is the section turning control of our food supply over to the Ag Cartel.


Nothing in this Act (or an amendment made by this Act) shall be construed in a manner inconsistent with the agreement establishing the World Trade Organization or any other treaty or international agreement to which the United States is a party.

Here is a paper that nasty underbelly of Government Regulatory Agencies. I include a very small part of it.

USDA’s “Don’t Look, Don’t Know” Policy for Beef Inspection
This investigative report, as part of an ongoing series on corporate and government accountability, was researched and written by GAP Legal Director, Tom Devine.

... Americans learned it is still dangerous, if not fatal, to rely on the U.S. Department of Agriculture's (USDA) seal of wholesomeness. The ConAgra Food Corporation, then one of four giant firms dominating the beef packing industry, recalled over 19 million pounds of ground beef and related trim from the previous three months after laboratory tests confirmed E. coli O157:H7, the same food poisoning germ that killed and hospitalized so many. It was the third largest recall in history. USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced in a press release that no contaminated meat entered commerce, but the Centers for Disease Control linked a food poisoning death and at least 35 illnesses to the tainted beef during the first month after the recall.

What went wrong? These outbreaks are no longer supposed to occur, since 1996 when USDA instituted a new Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) system to modernize food safety for the 21st century. USDA trumpeted HACCP as a way to prevent contamination by placing responsibility on industry for its products, and by laboratory tests to detect invisible microbial contamination such as E. coli.....

USDA aggressively enforced a “do not look, do not tell” noninterference policy with the giant firm. This allowed the agency to remain officially ignorant of facts that could create a conflict with ConAgra, or expose the government’s own Seal of Approval as wholesome on tainted ConAgra beef. But it meant the government was sealing a cover up. It left the public ignorant of and vulnerable to ongoing shipments of government-approved, tainted meat....

In 1996, the Clinton Administration finalized the HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point) rule, which overhauled enforcement of federally inspected meat and poultry slaughtering and processing establishments. A primary change under HACCP was a shift in government and industry roles based upon the premise that introduction of microbial testing would strengthen meat inspection by making it more science-based.....

Whistleblowers from FSIS and industry alike have charged, however, double levels of regulatory schizophrenia between -- 1) HACCP on paper and in reality, and 2) HACCP as it is enforced at giant packing houses, compared to small businesses. The silent public policy premise is that the mission of FSIS inspectors and veterinarians no longer is to enforce the law on a routine basis....

Having institutionalized a passive presence, the agency has retreated further in food safety oversight of slaughter operations through staff cutbacks while line speeds were increasing. To fill the line inspector gap, the agency has drafted its HACCP monitoring inspectors and even veterinarians -- the same officials who should engage in HACCP oversight to assess whether the system could produce clean products at the faster speeds. The agency does not keep track of the food safety tasks missed in the process. Completing a food safety double whammy, those officials have been stripped of authority to write Noncompliance Reports (NR's) for HACCP violations while they work the line.

For consumers, strike three is that HACCP has been administered in an arbitrary manner. This has allowed the agency to cancel or dilute basic food safety standards for products and practices like sanitation control...

• Hot water sprays whose temperature was supposed to be checked at the carcass surface could be verified 20 feet away.

• Pest controls no longer had to be documented.

• Companies could dilute ingredients in their sprays of fecal contamination.

• Plants no longer had to treat Listeria as a hazard requiring a Critical Control Point.....
[NOTE: I had three animals DIE from Listeria while the Tyson plant in town was shipping Listeria contaminated corn products to consumers according to a lab tech doing the testing.]


FSIS smashed anyone who challenged its efforts to protect ConAgra from accountability, not just Mr. Munsell. After Mr. Smith took charge of the Munsell dispute from Washington, every official was moved off the job who blew the whistle internally on harassment of MQF, or who sought accountability from ConAgra. The harassment victims ranged from inspectors to supervisory vets. In some instances the agency simply isolated them from the case. Numerous whistleblowers have reported that the Inspector General staff’s primary interest was to attack the critics, while discouraging or only grudgingly accepting evidence of agency misconduct to shield ConAgra. Agency management forced some of the agency’s most seasoned veterinarians out of the government through steady harassment.

This treatment is consistent with a wide ranging phenomenon since new Labor Management chief William Milton purged the long time career staff of that office, who had earned respect over the years even from critics for objective, constructive resolution in retaliation cases. Leaders from professional organizations and unions alike now express no expectation of fair play within the agency personnel system, claiming that the merit system has been replaced with a reign of terror at FSIS....

A chart is attached comparing two firms' food safety track record, a giant firm and a small family business, and USDA's respective enforcement actions. (pg 21 and 22)

SO tell me again how we need more BIG GOVERNMENT....

Nope. End wall street speculation on oil futures and prices drop up to 40 percent.

Btw...for anyone who does not know...CLINTON is responsible for this. This wasn't allowed before 1990. (can't remember the exact year htis was passed)

Very true and it was not just oil it was FOOD. Speculation caused the 2008 Food Riots and starvation of babies and children. Mr. Clinton has the blood of babies on his hands!!!

For fact checking on Clinton's nasty banking laws: Quick list of Banking laws Clinton's Term of Office was January 20, 1993 - January 20, 2001. No you can not blame the laws on a Republican Congress. CLINTON had VETO but he signed them!

I found this and many other goodies at WantToKnow.Info - financial news

How Goldman gambled on starvation

2010-07-02, The Independent (One of the UK's leading newspapers)

This is the story of how some of the richest people in the world – Goldman, Deutsche Bank, the traders at Merrill Lynch, and more – have caused the starvation of some of the poorest people in the world.

At the end of 2006, food prices across the world started to rise, suddenly and stratospherically. Within a year, the price of wheat had shot up by 80 per cent, maize by 90 per cent, rice by 320 per cent. In a global jolt of hunger, 200 million people – mostly children – couldn't afford to get food any more, and sank into malnutrition or starvation. There were riots in more than 30 countries, and at least one government was violently overthrown. Then, in spring 2008, prices just as mysteriously fell back to their previous level. Jean Ziegler, the UN Special Rapporteur on the Right to Food, calls it "a silent mass murder", entirely due to "man-made actions."

Through the 1990s, Goldman Sachs and others lobbied hard and the regulations [controlling agricultural futures contracts] were abolished. Suddenly, these contracts were turned into "derivatives" that could be bought and sold among traders who had nothing to do with agriculture. A market in "food speculation" was born. The speculators drove the price through the roof


Clinton appointed Dan Amstutz, V.P. of Cargill, as a senior trade Advisor to WTO. Amstutz wrote the Agreement on Ag (1995) for WTO and then the "Freedom to Farm Act (1996) Amstutz then went to work for Goldman Sachs!!!!

Clinton's apologies for the damage his policies did:

Today's global food crisis shows "we all blew it, including me when I was president," by treating food crops as commodities instead of as a vital right of the world's poor, Bill Clinton told a U.N. gathering on Thursday. UNITED NATIONS, Oct. 23, 2008

President Bill Clinton... publicly apologized last month for forcing Haiti to drop tariffs on imported, subsidized US rice during his time in office. The policy wiped out Haitian rice farming and seriously damaged Haiti’s ability to be self-sufficient.

This is the Liberal hero, a baby killer.

.... I don't understand why it is soooo difficult for you to understand that just because somebody feels Palin is nowhere near qualified to be the president, doesn't by default mean that they are on the Obama wagon. BOTH PARTIES are the same and have f-ed this country up six ways from Sunday. Those of you who keep this BS going, with the liberal this, conservative that garbage, are braindead and I'd even go as far as saying unwittingly traitors to your country....

AMEN to that. If American voters do not figure out they are being played by master Puppeteers who OWN both parties, we can kiss the USA goodby within the next generation, probably less.

THIS is what the Republicans AND Democrats have planned for us so LISTEN UP!!! We have been SOLD to the international cartels and it wasn't Bush who did it. (Note, I dislike Bush too)

Clinton was the President who Ratified the North American Free Trade Agreement and the World Trade Organization Treaties and then got China admitted to the WTO. This set up the mass exodus of our jobs.

Gene Sperling (Clinton's head of the National Economic Council) and William Daley (Clinton's Sec of Commerce) worked on China’s entry into the World Trade Organization, an event which caused millions of manufacturing jobs in U.S. to be permanently lost. Currently General Electric CEO Jeffery Immelt has been tapped to lead a newly created Council on Jobs and Competitiveness. Obama is appointing this team of three TRAITORS to spearhead his economic policies. LINK

The patriot Act, AIG bailout. (AIG, was 80% nationalized by the U.S. government) and foreign wars increasing the Federal Debt.

Obama-Dodd financial bill would further enrich Goldman Sachs The "bill would reward the firm with potentially billions of dollars by instituting a so-called “resolution authority” that would, in practice, be a permanent bailout fund."

Continue Bankrupting the American people and destroying the dollar, Effectively lower wages to "international levels" using QE 2 and possibly QE 3

...QE has Keynesianism in its roots. All economists know the solution to unemployment is lower real wages. A central part of Keynes’ theory was the notion of money illusion. Keynes believed that workers would not accept nominal decreases in wages but that they could be fooled via inflation, a belief that only an elitist could have. If the cost of living goes up and wages stay the same, then real wages go down and presumably employment goes up (or down less than it otherwise would).

Inflation, the critical tool in the Keynesian paradigm, has been used regularly. Since the formation of the Federal Reserve, the purchasing power of the dollar has fallen almost 96%....

...Bernanke’s QE destroys the value of the dollar. In terms of outcomes, continued abuse of this policy will result in a collapse of the dollar and possibly hyperinflation. The article below deals with how Bernanke could create the first (which ends up as the second).

Could Bernanke Spark a Run on the Dollar?
By Mike WhitneyJanuary 27, 2010

Treasury yields are “blinking red”, but the Fed keeps acting like nothing’s wrong....

The reason we should care is because the yield curve is signaling one of two things; inflation or default. What it is NOT signaling is a robust recovery.Remember, the Fed’s main job is “price stability” which means keeping a lid on inflation....

...granted, QE2 has boosted stock prices, but the extra liquidity has also inflated commodities prices (making it harder on consumers) and wreaked havoc in emerging markets forcing trading partners to control capital flows or raise rates to tamp down inflation. But QE2′s greatest shortcoming is that is really doesn’t create jobs as advertised....

Here’s how the Wall Street journal’s Kelly Evans summed it up:”…the limits of monetary policy are becoming clearer. History suggests any further easing probably would do too much for the stock market and asset prices, and too little for jobs.The only real fix is to lower the cost of U.S. workers relative to foreign rivals and machines, or else raise their bang for the buck. The latter, while clearly preferable, requires education and training that won’t turn things around overnight.” (“The Fed’s Magic Show Appears to Be Over”, Wall Street Journal)

In other words, the Fed is planning to give every working man and woman in the US a big pay-cut so they can go nose-to-nose with foreign labor.

You can see how this blends seamlessly with Obama’s State of the Union Speech where he focused on “competition” as his central theme. More importantly, Obama reiterated his pledge to double exports in the next 5 years. The only way that can be achieved is by destroying the dollar....

...from an op-ed by Judy Shelton that explains what’s going on:

he government will continue to run a large budget deficit, which must be financed by issuing more government debt. The debt is monetized when the Federal Reserve purchases it from the public. The effect is to increase the money supply. Inflationary monetary policy goes hand-in-hand with a falling dollar in foreign-exchange markets.” (“The Wrong Way to Double Exports”, Judy Shelton, Wall Street Journal)So, while working people and pensioners see their savings sliced in half to accommodate the globalist dream of an evenly-depressed world labor market; the investor class will get regular injections of Fed liquidity via QE2 to keep stocks “bubbly” and profits high.

This policy of lowering the US standard of living is exactly what Al Gore's buddy Maurice Strong was calling for at the Rio Conference (Earth Summit II) in 1992, when he stated that industrialized countries have:

“…developed and benefited from the unsustainable patterns of production and consumption which have produced our present dilemma. It is clear that current lifestyles and consumption patterns of the affluent middle class -- involving high meat intake, consumption of large amounts of frozen and convenience foods, use of fossil fuels, appliances, home and work-place air-conditioning, and suburban housing -- are not sustainable. A shift is necessary toward lifestyles less geared to environmentally damaging consumption patterns."

It is what Obama's top Science Czar John Holdren and his co-authors meant when they wrote in their 1973 text book:
“A massive campaign must be launched to restore a high-quality environment in North America and to de-develop the United States..”

Funny how the US census bureau statistics showed 24% of US labor was engaged in manufacturing in 1970 and by 2009 it was less that 9%. Funny how Clinton's trade pact cost America 20 percent of its manufacturing jobs in just 14 years. Funny how Obama's Health Care Laws will kill 800,000 jobs according to the Congressional Budget Office. Funny how 70% of the US GNP is foreign owned..

The Value of Money January 3, 2003

...The United States now has the dubious distinction of being the world’s largest debtor nation and needs to attract fully 80% of the world’s free capital just to keep the dollar stable. During the 1990s, this was not a problem as strong financial markets led to increased foreign investment and consequently to further dollar denominated investments.

Foreign ownership of U.S. assets amounted to 33% of U.S. GDP in 1990. Today it is valued at over 70% of U.S. GDP. Foreigners own $2 trillion (19% of U.S. GDP) more in U.S. assets that the U.S. holds of theirs. Foreign ownership of the U.S. Treasury market is over 30%, over 23% of the corporate bond market, and 13% of the U.S. equity market. (Statistics courtesy of Bridgewater, Dec 13, 2002.)

The fate of the dollar now boils down to a question of confidence. But not the confidence of its own citizens, but of foreigners....

...In 1991 the US. switched from emphasizing Gross National Product (GNP) as the basic measure of total output, to Gross Domestic Product (GDP)... (Clinton AGAIN???
...the production of a foreigner in the US is not counted as part of US GNP. GDP is different from GNP in that it measures output produced on US soil...

U.S. imports have been more than U.S. exports in all but two of the years since 1965, so the U.S. has persistently run trade deficits....Last time we noted how the U.S. economy has become increasingly international in the past half-century. An increasing proportion of what we consume is produced abroad, and foreigners are among the biggest investors in the U.S. stock, bond, and real estate markets.

Because of the growing internationalization of the U.S. economy. TV newscasters sometimes warn that "foreigners are buying up America," and it's partly true...

In 1990, U.S. GDP > GNP by $37 billion-- there were a lot more foreign-owned businesses in U.S. than U.S.-owned businesses in rest of world. (In recent years, by contrast, GNP has been slightly larger than GDP in the U.S.) Foreign direct investment in the U.S. jumped from $54.5 billion in 1979 to over $400 billion in 1989.

...Per-capita GDP is a reasonable measure of a country's standard of living. In fact, "standard of living" and "per capita GDP" have come to be virtually synonymous...

Going along with extracting oil from the ground is shipping it to a refinery. So let's assume that we had the foresight to build new refineries in addition to adopting drill, baby, drill, OK?

So who says we have to compete in a global market with our own oil? Does the farmer charge himself $X for a bushel of wheat?

Drill it here, refine it here, sell it here, all immune to global prices and speculation. Any excess, put it on the global market.

From Dictator to Democracy was seen in Egypt

As journalists have sought to untangle the disparate threads that unite these uprisings, one of the most interesting revelations has been a common reference to a dusty -- but still relevant -- book, "From Dictatorship to Democracy."

Earlier this month, the New York Times proclaimed its author, Gene Sharp, a "shy intellectual" who had created "the playbook for revolution" -- noting that his work was posted on the Muslim Brotherhood website during the Egyptian uprising, and was cited equally among Tunisians, Bosnians and Estonians in their quest for freedom. So far, it has been translated into 41 languages....

It doesn't really matter which idiot the republican/tea bagger party nominates to carry their banner in 2012 because they don't stand a fart's chance in a hurricane of winning! The GOP is currently nothing more than an echo chamber for hollow slogans that, when first heard, sound good to the average american. (More often than not, Sarah Palin can't even get the slogans right.)

As was just witnessed with the presentation of the medicare killing Paul Ryan budget proposal, when the american people get the opportunity to see the real GOP agenda in action, they are horrified. The same could be said regarding the people's reaction to Gov. Walker's union busting agenda in Wisconsin as the state prepares for record recall elections. You might even take note of the very recent election of (D) Kathy Hochul to represent the N.Y. 26th congressional district, replacing the Craigslist troller (R) Chris Lee, in which her republican opponent's support of the Ryan budget plan was determined to be the deciding factor. Or, how about the 29% approval rating of Florida's medicare defrauding Gov. (R) Rick Scott and his proposals to cut public education while providing tax cuts for the corporate elite.

Now that the GOP/Tea Party has shown their hand and made their agenda clear for all to see, "winning" is out of the question. At this point in time, the GOP/Tea Party should concentrate their efforts on just cutting their losses to a minimum lest they be completely eliminated from the political arena altogether, just to be replaced by a much smaller, vastly more radical "Tea Party."

Isn't it ironic that they decided to choose the name "Tea Party" with the tea bag as their symbol, hanging it from their hats and signs etc.? I mean to "tea bag" someone has to do with nuts, does it not? Not to mention the fact that their ignorance of U.S. history precluded them from knowing that the "Boston Tea Party" of 1773 was not orchestrated in protest of being taxed, but rather, it was a protest of being taxed by anyone other than their elected representatives, namely the British government. Hence the creation of the slogan, "No Taxation Without Representation."

The Tea Party was the culmination of a resistance movement throughout British America against the Tea Act, which had been passed by the British Parliament in 1773. Colonists objected to the Tea Act for a variety of reasons, especially because they believed that it violated their right to be taxed only by their own elected representatives. Protesters had successfully prevented the unloading of taxed tea in three other colonies, but in Boston, embattled Royal Governor Thomas Hutchinson refused to allow the tea to be returned to Britain. He apparently did not expect that the protestors would choose to destroy the tea rather than concede the authority of a legislature in which they were not directly represented.

IMO, a more suitable name for their movement would have been "The Planters Party" as it would be a fitting description of the bag of mixed nuts that makes up the vast majority of their constituency.

The only way that the GOP, (Gullible Old Party) can win the White House in 2012 is for them to steal the election, because winning it is out of the question. On the other hand, the GOP has utilized the Supreme Court to steal elections in the past, (remember Florida) therefore, I have to admit that the same scenario could be repeated.

It is rigged by the commodity speculators just like food was in 2008. I already showed that in another post.

Supply plays a part in pricing but not when you have a cartel playing games.

Remember the "Oil/Gas shortage" of the mid 1970's???

I have talked to several truckers who told me the tanks in New Jersey were just about overflowing and the guys in the plants did not know where to store the EXCESS GASOLINE! As soon as the price of gas doubled the shortage mysteriously disappeared!
