While Edward Snowden’s legacy has already been felt in official, government circle most recently with Obama’s amusing, if completely meaningless, theatrical reformation of the NSA (so wait, the Utah’s superstasi spy center is now closed, right?), it is now the private sector’s turn. Moments ago, Verizon – in what is hopefully the first such action of many – provided an extensive “Transparency Report” in which it disclosed the “number of subpoenas, orders, and warrants we received from law enforcement in the United States last year. We also received emergency requests and National Security Letters. The vast majority of these various types of demands relate to our consumer customers; we receive relatively few demands regarding our enterprise customers.”
So regular retail customers are being actively spied on, but corporations are safe. Good to know.
In September, Israel bombed the reactor in what administration officials nicknamed the “Tojo option – referring to the Japanese prime minister who order the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor.”
“I worried about the influence of the Israelis and the Saudis in the White House, particularly Prime Minister Olmert and King Abdullah, and their shared desire to have problems like Iran ‘taken care of’ while Bush was still president,” Gates writes.
As the Super Bowl approaches New York much like a blizzard, here are some things to think about: in 2012, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell was paid $29.5 million to run the organization. And that’s not all. The NFL, if you didn’t realize it, exists as a 501 c 6 organization. It’s not for profit!
In order to have that status, the NFL must be run as a charitable foundation. In 2012, they gave away a meager $2.3 million. Almost all of it–$2.1 million– went to the NFL Hall of Fame.
Goodell made 15 times what the group donated to other charities.
More crazy: Goodell’s salary is 1/10th of what the NFL claimed in total assets for 2012– $255 million.
Or even crazier: the NFL only made charitable donations equaling one-one hundredth of their annual income.
An ambitious task to be sure, especially for the very people who have benefited the most from the record wealth transfer of the past 5 years. Still, while these true Robin Hoods of the modern gilded age are desperate for a few minutes of humanitarian TV exposure, or at least a soundbite or two, their advice to the peasants out there is quite clear: don’t get too close.
Oh, and for those dignitaries of the non-private sector staying here, guess who is picking up the bill dear taxpayers.
Meanwhile, Democrats’ satisfaction has been remarkably steady, generally hovering near 50%, and is essentially the same as it was in 2004 under a Republican president.
Republicans and Independents Less Satisfied, Democrats Remain Consistent
Neither article mentions some very important historical context. For the first 120 years of the existence of the United States (before the establishment of the Federal Reserve), general prices trended downward. According to the Department of Commerce’s Statistical Abstract of the United States, the “General Price Index” declined by 19% from 1801 to 1900. This stands in contrast to the 2,280% increase of the CPI between 1913 and 2013
Thomas Edison once said that his goal was to make electricity so cheap that only the rich would burn candles. He was fortunate to have no Nobel economists on his marketing team.They certainly would have advised him to raise prices to increase sales. But Edison’s strategy of driving sales volume through lower prices is clearly visible today in industries all over the world. By lowering prices, companies not only grow their customer base, but they tend to increase profits as well. Most visibly, consumer electronics has seen chronic deflation for years without crimping demand or hurting profits. According to the Wall Street Journal, this should be impossible.
After five years of aggressive Federal Reserve and government intervention in our monetary and financial systems, it’s time to ask: Where are we?
For example, CNS News has a story marking Obama’s fifth year in office. According to their calculations, “Under President Barack Obama, the total debt of the U.S. government has increased by approximately $1,608,304 for each of the 4,130,665 babies born in the United States in 2009, the year Obama took office … The $104,300,803,895,565 the federal government would borrow during the lifetimes of babies born in 2009—if the government were to continue to borrow at the annual pace of $1,328,672,661,090 it maintained in Obama’s first five years—would equal approximately $25,250,366 for each of those babies.”
Young America’s Foundation has released its Youth Misery Index (YMI) numbers for 2013, and it’s a record high of 98.6.
The Youth Misery Index (YMI) is calculated by adding youth unemployment, student loan debt, and national debt (per capita) numbers. Young people are experiencing hardships like never before under the Obama administration, and this generation is plagued by the burden of massive government debt.
For people facing criminal charges, freedom not only is not free; it is dauntingly expensive. The Kaleys’ lawyers estimate that a trial will cost $500,000 in legal fees and other expenses. The Kaleys had planned to cover the cost with money drawn from a home equity line of credit-until the government took it.
Technically, the government has not taken the money yet; it has merely “restrained” it, along with the rest of the home’s value, in anticipation of a post-conviction forfeiture. But the result is the same for the Kaleys: They can no longer afford to pay the lawyers they chose and trust, the people who have been representing them for eight years and are familiar with the details of their case.
“Police sent in from outside don’t know where the criminals are,” Lopez said. “We know of 10 warehouses where they are hiding armed men; they (federal police) aren’t going to find them.”
Vigilantes have surrounded Apatzingan, which is said to be a Knights Templar stronghold.
The unrest is in a region of Michoacan known as Tierra Caliente, a rich farming area that is a major producer of limes, avocados and mangos where vigilante groups have been trying to drive out the Knights Templar drug cartel. After a weekend of firefights, the government announced Monday that it would take on security duties in the area.
The example of Paying back retirees with cheaper dollars illustrates the real costs of built in systemic inflation, not just for citizens on a fix income, but for everyone. This lost in purchasing value of the currency is obvious to any honest person.
“The average social security check was $321 in 1980 and in 2011 it was $1183 (adjusted for inflation). But if that $321 pension check were to be fully adjusted for inflation according to way inflation was calculated in 1980 (cost of gasoline and food included), then that $321 should be $3636 to have the same purchasing power today.”
Bernanke’s real legacy produced the following outcomes. The always-reliable ZeroHedge site states some undeniable facts under Bernanke’s watch.
- The US has never experienced 3% GDP growth.
- The labor participation rate has fallen to levels not seen since the ‘70s.
- Inflation-adjusted median incomes have fallen 7%.
- The US’s debt load has risen from $8.4 trillion to over $16 trillion.
- The Fed’s balance sheet has increased from $800 billion to over $4 trillion (larger than the economies of Brazil, France and even Germany).
- Food prices have hit record highs fomenting revolutions in the Middle East and untold suffering around the globe.
- The Fed has funneled trillions of Dollars into both US banks and European banks.
- The Fed has allowed fraud, insider trading, and corruption.
Global unemployment is rising, there is no recovery, the central banks along with the governments have created a recovery illusion. The people of Europe are slipping further into poverty. China makes there next which threatens the US dollar, the dollar is on the verge of collapsing.
Cyber attacks are on the rise across the world which will pave the way for the doomsday cyber attack. As the world economy declines the central bankers/US government will start to push war and martial law in each country to contain the rioting, looting and the violence.
Van Susteren said that in her 20-plus years in the business, she had never received a call to try to shut down a colleague.
Today what held true during the Cold War years and beyond is no longer the case. The kingdom’s policy has become anything but quiet and Washington’s support has become somewhat questionable, with a president in the White House who is undecided about Washington’s policy in the Middle East.
The Saudis fear that the Syrian civil war, if left unchecked will eventually reach its own territory.

While gays, the media, and Obama continue to whine and stick a finger in the eye of Russia and Putin over gay issues, those concerned with national security are looking for three Islamic terrorist women known individually and/or collectively as “the Black widow.”
Is it just me? Or did you also note that the most deadly and threatening “school of thought” against gays is Islam, NOT Russia or Vladimir Putin?
There’s an old joke in Russia about the two former Soviet media outlets, “Pravda” (which means “truth”) and “Izvestia” (which means “news”): that there’s no pravda in Izvestia and no izvestia in Pravda.
And there’s no pravda in anything that Barack Obama, the homosexuals, and the mainstream media are doing in their “outrage” against Russia’s perceived anti-homosexual policies.
“Iran’s military nuclear programme must be stopped, and Iran’s military nuclear programme will be stopped,” Netanyahu said at a joint news conference with his Canadian counterpart Stephen Harper, without saying how.
Obama is using the EPA to destroy the coal industry, steal land from states, and Boehner does nothing to stop him. Why haven’t impeachment proceedings been started?
A newly-uncovered and monumental calculating error in official US government climate data shows beyond doubt that climate scientists unjustifiably added on a whopping one degree of phantom warming to the official “raw” temperature record.
Skeptics believe the discovery may trigger the biggest of all “climate con” scandals in Congress and sound the death knell on American climate policy.
For the most part, cattle in America are seen not as animals or living, breathing entities, but as commodities—products to be bought and sold for consumption. So, in many cases, the mistreatment of these commodities doesn’t get a second thought. Large-scale producers are interested in raising the most profitable product for the lowest cost, and this means feeding them some pretty strange stuff.
The secret is out – bees have been disappearing for almost a decade now, and scientists are scrambling to understand why. Some sources relay that the colonies all across the world are vanishing due to pesticides, electromagnetic frequencies, mites, and even GMO crops, but what researches have recently found to be the cause of the bee catastrophe will shock you.
According to a recent report in Quartz, a first-of-its-kind study determined that large numbers of bees are dying due to cross-contamination of pollen and various pesticides.

A newly translated Hebrew text claims to reveal where treasures from King Solomon’s temple were hidden and discusses the fate of the Ark of the Covenant itself.
But unlike the Indiana Jones movie “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” the text leaves the exact location of the Ark unclear and states that it, and the other treasures, “shall not be revealed until the day of the coming of the Messiah son of David …” putting it out of reach of any would-be treasure seeker.
