Iran building rocket bases in Venezuela

17 May, 2011 (11:19) | Political position, Security | By: MoPatriot

per the Jerusalem Post:

Iran is building intermediate- range missile launch pads on the Paraguaná Peninsula, and engineers from a construction firm – Khatam al-Anbia – owned by the Revolutionary Guards visited Paraguaná in February. Amir al-Hadschisadeh, the head of the Guard’s Air Force, participated in the visit, according to the report. Die Welt cited information from “Western security insiders.”

To help the geographically challenged, the Paraguana Peninsula is the most Northwestern point in Venezuela – its roughly 15 miles to Aruba from there.  To further expand this; its less than 1200 miles to Miami from there, the Iranians already have missile tech with range capable of 1000 miles and the N Koreans, who are actively trading secrets with Iran, have missile tech that can easily reach the US Heartland from this point in Venezuela.  This will be a BIG problem if allowed to develop fully.   Can you say, “Venezuelan Missile Crisis”?

Watch the Federal Reserve very closely…

2 February, 2011 (00:00) | Economy, Federal Reserve | By: MoPatriot

The current version of a US central bank was created in 1913 by a lame duck session of Congress, it was literally passed in the dark of night.  The Federal Reserve Act of 1913 was simply the beginning, a necessary part of the machine that could bring down the USA.  Listen to what Rep Ron Paul (R-TX) has to say about the Fed.  Careful study of the bill and its subsequent amendments will show that it has been a political football since its creation and its support has come through lobbies rather than grass roots.  Its not a great leap to understand that the Fed, with its current positions and actions withstanding, is a huge liability for the people of the United States.

Take some time to educate yourself on exactly what this organization (monster) really is about.  I realize these are cartoons, but what is being presented is dead on.  Take a few minutes, listen to what is being said.  Its fairly complex, but that’s the beauty of the plan – most Americans get sick of hearing about this long before they realize we are being screwed on a level unmatched in all of human history.  Again, I urge you to watch these until you can make sense of what they are saying – then join with me in demanding the Fed be at least audited by Congress.  The actions of the Fed are how we will sail off the page of human history if we aren’t better stewards of our own finances…and the Fed is not going to do it on their own unless they are made to be accountable.  The Federal Reserve is often referred to as the Creature from Jeckle Island – and its not because it is a warm and fuzzy group of teddy bears.  WAKE UP!!!

UPDATE NYT: Fed’s Contrarian Has a Wary Eye on the Past

I have no love lost or hard feelings about Alan Grayson getting his kester handed to him in the 2010 election, but his line of questioning in the Financial Services Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations hearing of May 5, 2009 directed at Inspector General Elizabeth Coleman gives you an idea of the depth of the problem.  Check the video out here

Washington’s Blog has put together an extensive list to help debunk and make sense of all the mumbo-jumbo that these clowns are trying to pass off as sensical to the American people.  You can find it here.   Heck, Virginia, in what could be the next “shot heard around the world”, along with several other states, are actually moving forward with plans for their own currency because of what they rightfully perceive as a clear and present danger from the Federal Reserve.

UPDATED: The Federal Reserve has surpassed China as the leading holder of US Treasury securities even though it has yet to reach the halfway mark in its latest round of quantitative easing, according to official figures.  But what are those TIPS they are investing so heavily in?  Treasury Inflation-Protected Securities no less, so that when they blow the bottom out of the dollar with all the quantitative easing they don’t lose money – how convenient.

Debt Problems? Why Not Sell Some Of That Gold?

On a more detailed historical note, Thomas DiLorenzo gives a study in The Real Reason for Central Banking: Government for the Privileged Few.  MoPatriot found this very insightful.

Elections DO MATTER

Yeah, they’re cartoons, but it helps to point out that if you aren’t outraged, you just aren’t paying attention. Thanks to for the insight and funnies…

Don’t underestimate the dastardly deeds and lengths the Dem/Lib/Progressives will go to squeeze out a “win” that does not represent the will of the electorate. Just Read Here and of course, for all the latest underhanded tactics, check with Chris Bowers at Daily Kos.  Still think our government is “of the people, for the people, by the people”?  Well, not with folks like this watching the store.

Check out the Soros funded Secretary of State Project website…do you think those folks are out for “election integrity”?  Perhaps a different look at this innocuous looking PAC is due, try here, at Big Government.

Noah Webster, the “Father of American Education,” known for his dictionary still used today and as a strong Christian leader, wrote:

When you become entitled to exercise the right of voting for public officers, let it be impressed on your mind that God commands you to choose for rulers “just men who will rule in the fear of God.” The preservation of a republican government depends on the faithful discharge of this duty;

If the citizens neglect their duty and place unprincipled men in office, the government will soon be corrupted… Corrupt or incompetent men will be appointed to execute the laws; the public revenues will be squandered…and the rights of the citizens will be violated or disregarded.

If a republican government fails to secure public prosperity and happiness, it must be because the citizens neglect the divine commands, and elect bad men to make and administer the laws (History of the United States, 1832, pp. 307-308).

Rep Tom Price (R-GA) lays out the indictment:

The chief actuary for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, a division of the Department of Health and Human Services, has released a report showing that the new national health care law will increase health care spending in the United States beyond already unsustainable levels.

No kidding?  That’s exactly what everyone except those in the tank with the administration were saying all along!

Nothing these folks have proposed will every make anything cost less, be more efficient or improve US competitiveness abroad.  Everything is about fewer choices with increased cost and intrusive government involvement.  Its all about control of the US population via centralized planning.  If these were such great ideas, the trash bin of history wouldn’t be littered with every prior attempt at exactly what they are doing…so they lie to hide their true aspirations.

The high cost of “Climate Change”

16 May, 2011 (00:00) | Climate Change, Economy, Energy | By: MoPatriot

If you are still one of those that thinks Climate Change is about saving the environment or  “what could being a little cleaner in my daily routine hurt?”, well…you need to pay attention.

Quite simply, Climate Change is a manufactured crisis – the people touting it cannot be trusted.  Man’s impact on the natural environment, at current levels, is negligible.  The human races’ carbon footprint is in several orders of magnitude smaller than natural sources, not nearly enough to cause all the flap and certain financial ruin proposed by the ruling elites.

The Cap and Trade Con Exposed

Fueling inflation

29 April, 2011 (17:09) | Economy, Energy, Political position | By: MoPatriot

Just in case you are willing to shrug off the higher fuel prices, this is where the rubber literally hits the road and why inflation will be rampant.

Fuel Surcharge for Less-Than-Truckload shipment (common carriers like YRC, Old Dominion, etc) < 20,000lbs: 31.800%

Fuel Surcharge for truckload shipments > 20,000lbs: 63.600%

Fuel Index for week of 4/25/2011: $4.098   Source

It is generally accepted that freight costs represent 8%-15% of the final cost of most goods.  When you consider that everything you purchase, at one point or another or even several times, was on a truck, you can see how pervasive this is.  Right off you can figure that most goods now cost 2.5% to 9.5% more than about 3 years ago solely because of the cost of fuel.  Stiffer EPA regulations as well as expanding insurance coverage needs on carriers adds even more pressure for higher rates.

I’ll leave the reason fuel is going up and the dollar is rapidly going down for another discussion.

Barack Obama looks more like Hugo Chavez everyday…

22 April, 2011 (13:17) | Political position | By: MoPatriot

Be warned, this man is out to be king (dictator) because he and his cartel of international bank rollers are well aware that this regime’s policies are destructive to America and American’s are seeing it more and more everyday.  What’s a tyrannical regime to do?  The same things Venezuela’s tyrannical strongman Hugo Chavez is doing, take out the competition…something BHO is very familiar with.

CNBC: Handouts Make Up One-Third of U.S. Wages

8 March, 2011 (16:28) | Economy, Health Care, Immigration, Political position, Traditional Values | By: MoPatriot

Government payouts—including Social Security, Medicare and unemployment insurance—make up more than a third of total wages and salaries of the U.S. population, a record figure that will only increase if action isn’t taken before the majority of Baby Boomers enter retirement.

Even as the economy has recovered, social welfare benefits make up 35 percent of wages and salaries this year, up from 21 percent in 2000 and 10 percent in 1960, according to TrimTabs Investment Research using Bureau of Economic Analysis data.

“The U.S. economy has become alarmingly dependent on government stimulus,” said Madeline Schnapp, director of Macroeconomic Research at TrimTabs, in a note to clients. “Consumption supported by wages and salaries is a much stronger foundation for economic growth than consumption based on social welfare benefits.”

Wisconsin Protesters Far From Middle Class

2 March, 2011 (00:00) | Economy, Political position, Traditional Values | By: MoPatriot

By: Wayne Allyn Root for NewsMax, Monday, February 28, 2011 07:49 AM

The world is backwards. It should be the taxpayers striking in the streets of Wisconsin, not those under union control. But, private sector taxpayers can’t afford to take a day off, let alone a week. Doesn’t that say everything?

Only government employees with their powerful unions, lifetime job security, short work-weeks, loads of sick days, nonstop holidays, early retirement, and bloated pensions, can afford to stand in the street protesting.

Common sense tells us anyone with this much time to protest and the ability to abandon their work duties, is greatly overpaid.

It’s time for a reality check. These $100,000-per-year teachers keep talking about “the kids.” Exactly who is teaching those kids while their teachers abandon their jobs and commit fraud with fake doctor’s notes?
