Boehner To Explain Plan 'B.O.' - Live Webcast

Tyler Durden's picture





 

This should be good. Part apology, part job interview, part finger-pointing; Speaker Boehner is set to speak at 10ET to explain how this is all going to be ok... or not...

Mr. Boehner is both a very bad actor. But his Banking Mafia masters must be very proud of him.

After all, he and the mainstream media are successfully diverting the public opinion from the real issues (like endless wars of aggression, supporting and paying Al Qaeda and other terrorists all over world, destroying American middle class, destroying the American Constitution and freedom of American people, and stealing the last pennies from senior citizens, etc.,) to some bogus issues line “the fiscal cliff”, human right in Syria or poor life conditions of illegal immigrants.

no plan will go through without this portion of the GOP signing on.

If the democraps think that this will help them in coming elections; they're fools...it's only going to make this wing stronger.  There is no mandate; the power structure doesn't seem to smell what's coming.

That's coming but meanwhile...

It's now a pissing match between GOP, Liberatians and Conservative positions, each as seperate positions in Republican party.  They are seperate elements to the party and Boner forgot that fact.  He served his agenda without including his party platform.  He committed career suicide and assumed that he could drag his party with him.

Cannot stand listening to the man and his decades long career of vapour delivery...amazes me that Americans even regard him as a "do'er" or leadership material.  Goes for most of the silver spoon daddy's boys sitting in the Senate and Congress.

Trav, we both know the real plan is for taxes to go up.  Austerity must happen, whether it be advertised taxes or clandestine inflation.  A little truth opens eyes to bigger truths.  Funny how that works...

O got them by their balls, and he will be the hero. Taxes for everybody up - thanks to GOP, cut spending on everything - thanks to GOP. Of course O is unwilling hero but he will take that with open arms. Anyway America does not have any choice, they gave him somebody to blame. I cant understand how stupid GOP are, they gave him all weapons he needed. He lined them up for it.

take a look at the county maps of red/blue. It's been 50 YEARS of this plan, through immigration's importing of another reliable bloc vote to go with blacks'.  The black population was simply insufficient to support a permanent Demoncrapification of government.  So, they brought in some people a couple shades lighter but still reliably counted upon to support at the 70%ish bloc rate.  Aligned with marxist yankees and the freak crowd and hippies, you have the bare majority they wanted.

They cannot dominate state-by-state in legislatures and whatnot, because those have bicameralism at the State level where the red/blue county maps dictate a red-leaning state governance in most cases.  But they can most definitely lean electors nationally blue especially when there is a billion $ to support busing and other "rock the vote" measures.

The GOP is the white party...it's the party of the America that USED to be, combined in some interests with the neocons who worship war.  Ron Paul was the MOST anti-war candidate, yet he was called alternately to the right of Attila the Hun and the Left of Lenin depending upon who you asked.  This is the true conservative wing...there are a lot of people who don't want to live in warfreaktopia that the cons and the libs seem to think is Eden.

That party is bought by AIPAC and the other party is no different. What the fuck? You talk about past or dreams, or what ever. White, black, green who cares as long the rip-off business is finished then America will thrive.

Mathbabe: Nate Silver not just wrong, but maliciously wrong

http://mathbabe.org/2012/12/20/nate-silver-confuses-cause-and-effect-ends-up-defending-corruption/

 

"Silver confuses cause and effect. We didn’t have a financial crisis because of a bad model or a few bad models. We had bad models because of a corrupt and criminally fraudulent financial system.

That’s an important distinction, because we could fix a few bad models with a few good mathematicians, but we can’t fix the entire system so easily. There’s no math band-aid that will cure these boo-boos.

I can’t emphasize this too strongly: this is not just wrong, it’s maliciously wrong. If people believe in the math band-aid, then we won’t fix the problems in the system that so desperately need fixing."

At one time we were far more frugal in our budgeting.

Getting involved in wars would blow out the budget, but then we'd pay it back down... until we got into another war.

Then the Federal Reserve was spawned, whereupon they caused the Great Depression... then Franklin D Roosevelt started us down the socialist path...

From Wikipedia:

"...Except for about a year during 1835-1836, the United States has continuously held a public debt since the US Constitution legally went into effect on 4 March 1789. Debts incurred during the American Revolutionary War and under the Articles of Confederation amounted to $75,463,476.52 on January 1, 1791. From 1796 to 1811 there were 14 budget surpluses and 2 deficits. There was a sharp increase in the debt as a result of the War of 1812. In the 20 years following that war, there were 18 surpluses. The United States actually paid off its debt entirely in January 1835, only to begin accruing debt anew by 1836 (the debt on 1 January 1836 was $37,000).[2][3]

Another sharp increase in the debt occurred as a result of the Civil War. The debt was just $65 million in 1860, but passed $1 billion in 1863 and reached $2.7 billion by the end of the war. During the following 47 years, there were 36 surpluses and 11 deficits. During this period 55% of the national debt was paid off.

The next period of major increase in the national debt took place during World War I, reaching $25.5 billion at its conclusion. It was followed by 11 consecutive surpluses and saw the debt reduced by 36%.

Social programs enacted during the Great Depression and the buildup and involvement in World War II during the F.D. Roosevelt and Truman presidencies in the 1930s and 1940s caused the largest increase – a sixteenfold increase in the gross public debt from $16 billion in 1930 to $260 billion in 1950. When Roosevelt took office in 1933, the national debt was almost $20 billion; a sum equal to 20 percent of the U.S. gross domestic product (GDP). During its first term, the Roosevelt administration ran large annual deficits between 2 and 5 percent of GDP. By 1936, the national debt had increased to $33.7 billion or approximately 40 percent of GDP.[4] Gross debt relative to GDP rose to over 100% of GDP to pay for the mobilization before and during World War II. ...

We have a predicament not a problem. Problems have solutions. Predicaments have only bad choices. They do not tell the sheep this. Go ahead..cut spending and watch unemployment shoot up. Go ahead..keep borrowing and spending and watch the bond market implode. There is no fix. Rock=hard place. Everything they say is a lie.

I think you are spot on... except for maybe the bond market exploding. I think the Fed is the major buyer at the moment. If they weren't buying the majority of the Treasury paper I think the bond market would have blown up long ago.

But we're helplessly dead in the water awaiting our fate. Should we worry more about the circling sharks attacking our leaking rubber raft or the monstrous storm clouds on the horizon heading our way?

note the 1.3 trillion of spending cuts and 850 billion of tax hikes sums to 2.2 trillion over 10 years...compared to this years deficit of 1.3 trillion and 13 trillion of ten years...even if the plan is evolved, the debt will increase at the rate of 800 billion per annum or 8 trillion over ten years. sigh

I don't think your math consideres the negative impact of these actions on revenue and increases in the 1.08 trillion/year of means-tested entitlements.  Any solution that emphasizes taxes over spending cuts with ADD to the annual deficit, not reduce it.

I would be interested in those numbers and more as well.

But in the meantime, Tony Robbins had "some of his guys" do a little research on how much of a dent they could put in the deficit by tax increases (assuming the tax increases didn't affect their behavior in doing things such as trying to avoid those confiscatory taxes, of course).

I think it should be pretty eye opening for most people. They started out by taxing all the millionaires at 100% of income... but that didn't do much, so they kept adding on and adding on...

"Eventually America will be busted in the Middle East and they will lose their petro-dollar based hegemony. This is when a new monetary system will be introduced. The only questions are how big the bang will be with which the US will go down and if the new system will be World Currency or the final preliminary one."

"The Money Power wants a massive, global depression. In Europe it’s organizing it through the Euro ‘Crisis’, ‘forcing’ the Governments into self defeating austerity, aggravating an already catastrophic deflationary nightmare. The United States is in a much better position, because the Federal Reserve is just buying up all the US debt for basically nothing. This, the ECB cannot do. Until recently, anyway, because it means Germany and the other northern nations are underwriting southern debt."
