    Why is a Deutsche Bank mouthpiece suggesting “negative retail deposit rates or perhaps wealth taxes”? The answer is to (supposedly) stimulate our economies.

This wizard of fiat is hip
He's taken us on a strange trip
His plan for inflation
Is robbing the nation
Our wealth he is trying to strip

The Limerick King



Whenever Ben speaks it is "Big"
The markets he's trying to rig
The future is set
It's all about debt
To sheeple he's shouting out "DIG"

Brilliant work as usual, disturbing but also prophetic. Thanks so much, again.

man will spend eternity to control laws of nature.

however, nature wins long term.


nature works in cyclical ways. once on top, will be on the bottom. bottom will rise to the top. repeat.


change is random and constant.

Wow absolutely great stuff Dr. Banzai!

Reminds me a little of revelation with that mouth of Merkel  ... 


And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.

For they are the spirits of demons, working miracles, which go forth to the kings of the earth, and of the whole world ..

Interesting article about WB7's current home city of Hong Kong ... detailing how it is not really a 'free market' economy but rather yet another place controlled by a tight-knit oligarchy ... seems like the same story in so many places ...:

Yes there is a tycoonogarchy. But the funny thing is it is much more easy for people to start a small business here. I mean a real cakewalk compared to the US.

Outstanding, Buckaroo!

And from your friendly, neighborhood informationist:

Oh, The Irony!

Abraham Lincoln was the first American president to enact a whistleblower protection law under the wartime powers during the Civil War.

Barack Obama is the American president who has waged a war on whistleblowers, actively pursuing more whistleblowers than all previous American presidents combined, and invoking the Espionage Act against those American whistleblowers more so than all American presidents combined.

Don Siegelman is about to be re-sentenced.  Gov. Siegelman, after winning the governor’s election in Alabama, was railroaded into jail by Karl Rove’s gang in that region.  Mr. Siegelman has received no help from Obama or his Justice Department --- it’s almost as if Obama was in league with Rove, Dick Cheney and George W. Bush?

Peter Orszag, formerly with the Obama administration, just wrote an op-ed urging the complete privatization of the US Post Office.  Obama appointed Orszag, who was at Robert Ruben’s Hamilton Project within the Brookings Institution*, to head his OMB.

The Hamilton Project seeks to privatize everything, i.e., give everything public or in the public commons to Wall Street!

Obama is a democratic president?  In what universe?

The rightwing Obama administration, the criminal congress and the criminal Supreme Court cannot and must not be tolerated.

Either affect real political change by electing Dr. Jill Stein from the Green Party to the presidency in 2012, or crawl to a corner and STFU!

*Dishonest and deceitful newsies claim Brookings is “liberal” and non-partisan --- nothing could be further from the truth.  They are no different than the Du Pont family founded American Enterprise Institute, the Rockefeller family founded Peterson Institute, or the Koch brothers founded Cato Institute.

This is what a klepto-plutocracy looks like!

This is what a corporate fascist police state looks like!

This is what a real protest looks like:

WTF planet are you from?  You can find your own hole and STFU!  

The dems and repubs are both acting traitorous and moving us away from the Constitution, but you "think" the green party is the solution?!

What are you effing smoking?!

The green party would make Barry look like a libertarian in all the sh!t the green whackos want to control. 

Find an island somewhere and vote it into a centrally planned utopia, leave the US alone!

Green Party...lol.

Lessee, we got a drought goin on in the midwest, so ethanol will need additional Benny bucks subsidy.  The ranchers & dairymen are competing with the greenies for whatever corn makes it to market in order to keep their animals alive, afterall, both are food.

So questions must now be asked...why do the greens want to see animals suffer in the name of corporatist Toyota Prius? Does PETA condone the tradeoff human transportation vs animals? Will Krugman now step forward, once and for all, to stand with the crony capitalist moonshiners at the expense of poor little doe-eyed Daisy the Cow?

Inquiring minds ;-)

Methinks this is a massive game of distraction to shake people out of their "ONLY SAFE HAVEN LEFT".

Once the cartel shakes everyone out of their gold and silver positions, we the people literally have no asset protection.

Thanks WB.

Speaking of psychopaths...




The question, then, is whether it is reasonable to believe that people with serious abnormalities in the way they interact with the world can be found running for (and winning) office. However unsettling as this may be, the answer seems to be yes. It's possible for psychopaths to be found anywhere -- including city hall or Washington, D.C. Remember, psychopaths are not delusional or psychotic; in fact, two of the hallmarks of psychopathy are a calculating mind and a seemingly easy charm.

FLAMING LIPS - THE W.A.N.D (Will Always Negates Defeat)

You've got the power in there
Waving your wand in the air
Time after time those fanatical minds
Try to rule all the world
Telling us all it's them who's in charge of it all
I got a trick a magic stick that will make them all fall
We got the power now MOTHERFUCKER
That's where it belongs

You've got that right
You know that it is

They got their weapons to solve all their questions
They don't know what they're for
Why can't they see that's not power that's greed
To just want more and more

I got a plan
And it's here in my hand
A baton made of light
We're the enforcers
The sorcerer's orphans
And we know why we fight
You got that right!

You've got the power in there
Waving your wand in the air

You've got that right!
You know that it is!
