We Just Don’t Get It « The Burning Platform

If it was enough to win the day with sound reasoning, perhaps we wouldn't be in the pickle we're in.

There are sinister and nefarious conflagrations under foot which threaten to undo the liberty upon which this country is founded. The same entrenched special interests will do everything within their power to maintain status quo, even to the point of imposing martial law. They will try to ride out this depression the same way they've done so since the Federal Reserve Act was enacted in 1913, by inflating away the problem.

The problem isn't with our country, our economy, our society, or any aspect of it. The problem is the bankers are running it, and money is their god.

Now, to eat my own dog food, how do we resolve it? Electing Ron Paul would have been a good start, but the American people don't won't change, they want status quo. Status quo, however, is unsustainable by any means, short of dominating the world and enforce the status of the dollar as the world's reserve currency at the point of a sword, which is what the feds have been doing. Since it isn't possible to establish an authoritarian world government, one which the US dominates, even though this is their desire, the crash will be swift and severe. And why? Because it's all in the name of the almighty dollar.

Supposedly, the world is about to dump the dollar, at least as much as possible, and for the same reason, so should, too, the American people, and renegotiate the social contract, meaning gold plated retirement public pensions and underfunded government guaranteed private pensions will need to be reformed, and perhaps replace them with a generous social security plan. Anything to cut the long term unfunded obligations of the US federal govt. It's a start.

Bowles and Simpson had a plan, but no one liked it. Ron Paul had a plan, but not enough people recognized it. The American people cannot claim ignorance, and that no one warned them. They just haven't listened. I don't hold out hope that they every will, and we can't count on our elected officials, so were does that leave us? Right where we are.

Perhaps it's enough to fight for what is right, since that is the only course available to us. And to fight against what is wrong. The internet provides a means which hasn't been available to previous generations. We see how the NSA will use that power against us. We need to burn up our elected representatives phone lines and inboxes to hold them accountable to fiscal responsibility.

It's too late for the boomers, but it may not be too late to preserve liberty for future generations, by dismantling the nanny state and decentralizing the bureaucracy. It's not going to be easy, but the alternative is a totalitarian police state, in place of the individual freedom upon which this country was founded.

Those riots weren't contained to four city blocks in south LA, they spread up and down the west coast from San Diego in the south to Portland, OR in the north.

The rioters were basically malcontents looking for any excuse to cause mayhem.

Your best protection, have at least 2-3 weeks of provisions, and a means to defend ones self and loved ones against random acts of violence. 2-3 months of provisions, including a supply of water would be even better, depending on how severe the unrest becomes. If you can survive the initial civil unrest, your chances of survival go up considerably.

If 2-3 months go by, and thugs are still controlling the local centers, one will have to make the decision, fight or flight. Flight carries it's own risk, and raises the risk of ending up in a relocation camp.

Local communities that band together to provide for common security needs will be best off, but there still needs to be a means of food production, and as a society, we're so far removed from local food production, it's a real concern. Not all of us are as level headed as HF, and I question the ability of local farms to provide for even a modest community, which also shows my ignorance in this area. I can tell you from my experience growing up hunting and fishing, it's a good thing our survival didn't depend on eating what we caught.

At the end of the day, one can put their faith in God,

“Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble."

(Matthew 6:34 ESV)

Into Darwin’s Dark Night « The Burning Platform

Interesting discussion last night, sorry I missed it. LL, Billy, and El Shishkabob, oh my!

I've been reading about some wave of new immigration from the South. First, they came north, then came the global financial crisis, then they went south, now they're coming north, again?

LL, put down your bourbon, it's not cheap labor, this time it's cheap votes. Aw, snap!

It would be hilarious, if it wasn't so serious. Since apparently, blacks weren't breeding fast enough in the sixties, throw in hispanics, and you've got quite the voting block, and you can always import more.

Not that Europeans weren't breeding like rabbits in frontier America, I suppose the oligarchy why grow organically, when you can astro-turf.

One has to give them points for originality, though, it never ceases to amaze what lengths the Devil will  go to manipulate the unsuspecting.

I'll keep my guns, thank you very much.

The Emperor is Naked « The Burning Platform

OK, I'll accept the best preparation possible. We won't know when or where the "Clustefuck of Biblical Proportion" is going to occur, simply that it might. Which also means it might possibly not, however, it would be reckless not to accept the possibility it might.

That being a given, let's consider the spiritual reality, that neither does the Adversary know when the gathering together of God's people to himself might occur, and he must be continually on guard.

It is a stalemate, and the most interesting aspect of it all, in my opinion, is that we also know the outcome. I'll leave it at that for this edition of the Doomstead Diner. Cheers, RE!

One unmitigated disaster after another by this administration. I do believe he is that stupid, and I think he's doing that in which he believes is right. Too bad it's to the detriment of the nation.

George Bush was also doing what he believed was right, and we now know who are the bad actors, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Tenet. Clinton, Rubin, Gore from the Clinton administration.

These ideologues aren't interested in fairness or righteousness, they run from their own playbook, which changes to suit their whim. This is why they hate the constitution, because it holds them to a set of rules.

The mid-term elections should determine the course of the nation for the next two years, and may be sufficient to counter the status quo. They will have two years to garner the sentiment of the populace, with the ultimate goal of disarming the people, in order to finalize the establishment of a global order.

The Tea Party and the Occupy movement, have both been usurped by national organizations. If you recall, the initial movement would not establish a chain of command. Likewise, the Bundy militia would not allow un-vetted personnel on the compound, which saved them from a potential disaster when the Millers showed up.

Agent provocateurs, false flag attacks, and useful idiots, oh, my! I would be ashamed of my government, if there wasn't a glimmer of hope that in spite of all odds, freedom will reign at the end of the day.

Ex-NSA Chief Keith Alexander is Now Pimping Advice to Wall Street Banks for $1 Million a Month « The Burning Platform

Power mad Napoleon's of the neo-feudal age do not go quietly into that dark night. That this general might follow the example of General Douglas McArthur may be asking too much.

There have been a succession of administrations going back to the origins of the country which together form a pattern of deceit against the people of this country, in favor of industry and businesses which corrupt the political process.

Knowing this, why the SCOTUS would legitimize unlimited corporate political contributions is itself a telling fact. It takes a lot of money to deliver public sentiment for the puppet masters.

I'm sure Alexander is on the bleeding edge of detecting social media events and future crimes. After all, if one controls cyber space, how far are we from the matrix?

Bots be damned!

This topic is so much bullshit, it would take a front end loader and even then you couldn’t make a dent in it.

If your anti-Israel, you’re anti-God. All the god-haters line up on one side, and you’re the same ones hating Israel. You’re no different from the Nazis. They were some fucked up people, spiritually, and you’re no different.

Now, a significant portion of you also hate cops, not all, but there’s a significant overlap. And here’s why, if you can put a label on someone or something, then it’s easier to dismiss it, to ignore it, to pretend it doesn’t exist, or objectify them, to the point they’re no longer human.

Now, we’re all adults here, so who gives a shit. Know this, though, it’s just about as juvenile as it gets, and none of it amounts to anything, except whether you love god, or love the world. In the end, that’s all that matters. So, enjoy your freedom while it lasts. Spit on the name of Jesus, go ahead, but there will be a day when we will all give an account of ourselves to the almighty, and you will not be able to claim ignorance.

“For David did not ascend into the heavens, but he himself says,

“‘The Lord said to my Lord,

“Sit at my right hand,

until I make your enemies your footstool.”’

BANKSTERS OWN IT ALL « The Burning Platform

So, when the global financial crisis became the sovereign debt crisis, never mind exactly why that transition took place, and sovereign entities are unable to service the debt, which is precisely what the GDP vs Equities chart shows, at what point do the Global 25 replace nation states?

Not that it matters, since they also make the laws.

Furthermore, it also belies the point that sovereign states have failed to protect the interest of it's citizens in favor of corporate interests. I'm all ears to see how this one turns out. Or, are those who write legislation also above it? Really? Hmm, let's revisit this issue on the most fundamental grounds. I'm watching the Miami Heat lose the finals, and I'm a little pissed about what I'm composing, so there's a war waging within soul.

On the one hand, no one can be disappointed in watching Spoelstra's team lose, while at the same time give credit where it is due, and on the other hand, what are we, chopped liver? Apparently, this is what our elected reps in federal office presume. Ok, it's a commercial, but still not enough time to deal with this. I'm considering my options. On the one hand, nah, don't want to be labeled a terrorist on account of standing up for what is right. Who am I kidding, yes, I do.

So, there it is, if it's more honorable to be labeled a terrorist, and stand up for that which one believes, than submit to that which is unjust, then right and honor it will be, and there will be a bright line.  Right and honor on one side, deception and lies on the other. It will become more clear as GDP's collapse, and private interests are held in higher regard than the good of the public, antithetical to the principles upon which this country was founded, but one which socialist capitalism, or whatever you want to call it, reaches it's natural conclusion.

Happy Father's Day, have a great week, and God bless us all.

Next Time Someone Says The Earth Is Billions of Years Old… « The Burning Platform

I wonder how many examples of equally stupid publicly funded rhetoric we can find with dissenting views of the bible? It's hypocritical to take one example and use to that  to condemn one ideology, or, what is your point?

My biblical views are consistent with evolution, which is theory, by the way. If God chose to take 6 billion years to form the earth, what is that to you?

To get to the crux of your argument, yes, dinosaurs existed and were made extinct 35 million years ago. They had life, but of a different form than we know it, that which was created in Genesis.

Now that I've addressed your issue, answer mine, Evolution has never been proven because there is not one example of cross genus evolution, the proverbial missing link. Why is that? Take your time, I've got all eternity to wait for your reply.

KNOW YOUR ENEMY « The Burning Platform

The financiers seem to have everything locked up pretty well, that and their willing accomplices in the federal government. Carter was the last POTUS to even attempt to control the federal bureaucracy, where it's so out of control now there's no turning back, and it's either them or us. When that day comes, they should lay their arms down peaceably. What would happen if a war is declared, and no one showed up? But there will be a catalyst at some point which may cause civil unrest, and it will be at a time and choosing of these global elite. This assumes a nefarious conspiracy, or are we being led by the nature of man. To be sure, this is what is being manipulated, but to what end? If man is smart enough to build great societies and great structures, does he possess enough intelligence not to destroy himself? When then, does one owe to society, or civilization? Apparently, lies are owed, at least judging from what we are witnessing. Will no one stand up and declare themselves? It's not enough for one, but for all. But such is the nature of the true enemy, whom Jesus Christ exposed once and for all.

It struck me yesterday that these oligarchs wouldn't get involved in sports franchises, unless they could own all the teams, thereby guaranteeing victory for themselves.

Such is the meaning of fair play to these misers, as much as it exists in the world.

To carry the sports analogy a step further, athletics were devised to keep military combatants in good physical conditioning during times of peace.

"Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one receives the prize? So run that you may obtain it. Every athlete exercises self-control in all things. They do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable." (1 Corinthians 9:24-25 ESV)


"For we will all stand before the judgment seat of God; for it is written,

“As I live, says the Lord, every knee shall bow to me,

and every tongue shall confess to God.”

So then each of us will give an account of himself to God.

(Romans 14:10b-12 ESV)

God will be their judge.

"For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places."(Ephesians 6:12 ESV)

Yeah, right, Scree. That would require a level of intelligence I rather doubt you possess.

What a chicken shit thing to say about anyone. If and when SHTF, after a few days the cops are going home to take care of their families, then it will be open season on anyone left.

It’s all about continuity of government, the shadow variety. They’ll be defending key infrastructure and taking a wait and see approach. Stores will begin to get looted, no gas will be available after a few days, and then it will be neighbor against neighbor as the LA riots, NO and NE hurricane aftermaths play out on a national scale, which will also be the signal for riots to erupt in almost every non-militarized oligarchy ruled country. Can’t say about China, they may be the big winners if they’re able to maintain order. Maybe this is why the US is reported to be considering first strike offensives against both Russia and China. Once the US falls, NATO will be a sitting duck. They can’t fight a war on two fronts, domestic and foreign, not when the productive elements of our nation have been scuttled by the globalization of our industry.

If the currency collapses, the only chance the US Federal government has is to lay down their arms, and let a people’s legislature take command. If they want a fight, then a fight it will be. It will be a fitting end to generations of bureaucratic mismanagement and malfeasance. As the federal bureaucracy is marched tarred and feathered out of DC, the people can once again claim their rightful position at the head of government of, for, and by the people. Washington cannot claim this right at the present and until a popular movement assumes control, and winnows the federal bureaucracy from it’s unconstitutional functions, it cannot claim that right.

Any effort to effect a police state in our nation is bound to fail, notwithstanding all of the devices of the wicked.

(Ephesians 6:10-20 ESV)

NIRP AFTER ZIRP « The Burning Platform

AWD on the wrong track, as usual.

Negative interest rates only show how truly worthless paper currency becomes. Rates will never go back up, unless hyperinflation hits, then it’s game over, economy blown.

So, if rates remain conducive for banks to continue gaming the system, the US will continue borrowing from the lender of last resort, when do the chickens come home to roost, and in what form?

Global hegemony for the US is the only way out, with China and Russia standing in the way.

I still think collusion between these three will be the order of the day. They’ll divide the spoils amongst their oligarchies, leaving serfs and elites, which is how Orlov puts it. This brings up the question of freedom, and when is anyone truly free, except in their own minds, and by the grace of God?
