Catherine Austin Fitts calls what happened to the U.S since the market meltdown of 2008 a “fiscal coup d’état.” Fitts should know because she is a former Wall Street insider who has managed investments worth $300 billion. She is also a government insider. Catherine Austin Fitts was an Assistant Secretary for HUD in the first Bush Administration more than 20 years ago.
She says our leaders are “. . . doing a number of things that are going to depopulate or bankrupt the rest of us.” Why are people so ill-informed? Fitts says it’s because, “Corporate media is lying to you and wasting your time.” She also says, “Were going through a period of great change, and the pace is going to accelerate.” And, “Gold will be at the center of a new currency that will emerge.”

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Jobs growth slowed more than expected in August, setting the stage for the Federal Reserve to pump additional money into the sluggish economy next week and dealing a blow to President Obama as he seeks reelection in November.
Nonfarm payrolls increased only 96,000 last month, the Labor Department said on Friday. While the unemployment rate dropped to 8.1 percent from 8.3 percent in July, it was largely due to Americans giving up the search for work.
Interview of Dennis Kucinich at the DNC by Democracy Now - starts at 6:58:
"...stop trying to run the world, stop trying to pretend we can pick the leaders of other nations.."
you get the idea.
In 2008, Sue Lowdown (State Party Chair) turns off the lights, steals the ballot boxes at our State Convention, and later anoints national delegates & just gets a "That wasn't too nice." from the RNC, and NOTHING from the state party (though I did introduce Resolutions at the SCC meetings, that got NOWHERE.).
But already, "they've" come up with this. Before this came out, I did send Muth the page, explanation & supportive argument for RNC Rule 38, but he chose to ignore me.
Anyway, I find this all laughable, & it will be interesting to see how far they get with this.
Nevada Delegate, National Platform Committee
This article is done from behind the scenes in the NC GOP delegation at the RNC. We had a reporter following us the entire week. He explains all the shenanigans that the NC GOP did. It is well worth reading.
Ben Swann On The Jerry Doyle Show: Dems Have A Ron Paul Moment; "The Two Party System Is So Flawed."Submitted by Truthiness on Thu, 09/06/2012 - 16:20
Ben Swann was on The Jerry Doyle Show today talking about the "Ron Paul Moment" at the DNC. Hard to believe (yet not so hard to believe) that we would see an almost identical example of how the "votes" are scripted and pre-determined.
Jerry and Ben also talk about how FOX News is trying to make an issue of what happened at the DNC while completely ignoring how the SAME IDENTICAL THING happened at the RNC. Ridiculous!
Excuse me if I don't join in Democrats' sycophantic cheerleading for an Obama presidency that has shredded laws and liberties

For several decades, protection of whistleblowers has been a core political value for Democrats, at least for progressives. Daniel Ellsberg has long been viewed by liberals as an American hero for his disclosure of the top secret Pentagon Papers. In 2008, candidate Obama hailed whistleblowing as "acts of courage and patriotism", which "should be encouraged rather than stifled as they have been during the Bush administration".
President Obama, however, has waged the most aggressive and vindictive assault on whistleblowers of any president in American history, as even political magazines generally supportive of him have recognized and condemned. One might think that, as the party's faithful gather to celebrate the greatness of this leader, this fact would be a minor problem, a source of some tension between Obama and his hardest-core supporters, perhaps even some embarrassment. One would be wrong.
Waterboarding Accusations: Human Rights Watch Reports More Brutal Treatment In Secret CIA-Run Prisons, Cooperation With Moammar Gaddafi
CAIRO (AP) — Human Rights Watch said it has uncovered evidence of a wider use of waterboarding than previously acknowledged by the CIA, in a report Thursday detailing brutal treatment of detainees at U.S.-run lockups abroad after the 9/11 attacks.
Seriously, he's not being facetious :
Is Ron Paul too old? Not for me. Konrad Andenauer , Germanys greatest leader of the last two centuries was in power at age 87. Michelangelo began painting the Sistine Chapel at age 71, he was still at it when he died at age 89. The Biblical account of Moses has him beginning his long journey, leading the Israelis from slavery, at age 80. Let Ron Paul lead us out of slavery at age 80.
Here’s a toast to Ron Paul, 2016.
But what do we do now? And more urgent, how should we vote in the 2012 presidential election?
The good news is that as befits the Liberty Movement, I don’t have to make that decision. Each one of us will do that as we want. But here are some of the arguments I am hearing.

Being able to afford food has become more difficult for millions of Americans.
NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- More than 50 million Americans couldn't afford to buy food at some point in 2011, according to federal data.
Children in some 3.9 million households suffered from food insecurity last year, with their families unable to provide them with adequate, nutritious food at times.
Nearly 17 million Americans suffered from "very low food security," meaning they had to reduce the amount they ate, saying the food they bought did not last and they didn't have the funds to buy more. They typically found themselves in this situation a few days a month for seven months of the year.

Ron Paul Lecture - "The Great Enabler: The Rise of the Federal Reserve and the Growth of Government"
Published on Sep 4, 2012 by CongressmanRonPaul
Congressman Ron Paul delivered this Congressional lecture on "The Great Enabler: The Rise of the Federal Reserve and the Growth of Government." The introduction was given by Senator Rand Paul. As a continuing educational tool this lecture was filmed and is provided to the public.
Congressman Paul explains in this lecture the Federal Reserve's role as the enabler of big government. Through purchases of government debt, the Fed allows the government to spend beyond its means and contributes to the growth of the welfare-warfare state. If leviathan government is to be countered, understanding monetary policy and the fundamental role it plays in the relentless growth of government is a necessary first step.
