whomever the Koch brothers want in the whitehouse, (s)he will win.  Enough with this GOP farce.  David Koch is a modern day Gnaeus Pompeius Magnus.

this enduring appearance of impropriety for romney, he must now prove the negative that there wasn't anything bad there (and he's destroyed his own evidence of it), may help doom him.  gingrich, given time, will be the last stop between ron paul and the nomination (but watch huntsman, he has cartel approval written all over him).

While no fan of Romney, I'm still looking for the part that says what he did was illegal. Unprecedented is not the same thing.  Anyway,it all may be moot if we can have someone else as nominee.  Obamster's operatives are very industrious as is the media, except where Obama is involved.  


Huntsman! Whos idiot idea is that guy?

My rule was never vote for any member of either major party for national office.  Immediately after I heard Huntsman admit the actual cost to taxpayers for automotive fuel is $13-15/gal (military excursions, health costs, etc) I considered an exception to my rule, and voting for him. 

One of my best friends is ex-"temple" (advanced, high-ranking) Mormon.  His father (even longer experience as Mormon, ex-military) recently told him Mormon theology is that the USA must protect physical Israel at all costs.

Huntsman recently made a strong, caustic remark. with much emotion, that the USA must protect physical Israel.  This is extremely bad news, of course, unless you are a military vendor or war monger.  

I always liked Ron Paul, except he favors a gold standard, and I recently decided a gold standard is not such a great idea.  I presume you PM lovers/hoarders highly regard Paul.

Anyone remember how, after Hillary Clinton's law firm partner, and deputy White House Counsel, Vince Foster's body was found in Ft. Marcy Park, FBI investigators were kept away from Foster's computer until its hard drive was removed and, somehow, destroyed?

If you can have a president get away with 'Vince Foster' I doubt a governors missing emails is fatal. BTW I'm not for Romney just putting a little perspective on things.

The fact that the global financial system hinges on these 7 sets of 3 letters is appalling and amazing.

Well, you missed one. It's only two letters & Geithner is playing a game to hide banker's transparency. Shall we begin?

United Nations Treasury Operational Rates of Exchange


Next.. We log into The UN site.




Then we type into the search box: The Office of International Treasury's Control. Let's see what hits we get, press go! Google dumbs you down asking " Did you mean: The Office of International Treasury's''x Control." LOL


Please read.. http://search.un.org/search?ie=utf8&site=un_org&output=xml_no_dtd&client=UN_Website_en&num=10&lr=lang_en&proxystylesheet=UN_Website_en&oe=utf8&q=The+Office+of+International+Treasury%27s+Control&Submit=Go


First link:  Capital Flows to Latin America: Recent Developments -- Washington, D.C., 29 October 2010 

Second Link: The Financial Crisis and Global Policy Reforms -- October 2009 University of California, Berkeley


The second link strikes more interest. Let's take a look. 

The Obama Administration would create a Financial Services Oversight Council

chaired by the Treasury (and with its own permanent professional staff) to identify

potential risks to systemic stability and give the Fed regulatory power over individual

systemically important financial institutions. The Brown Government would vest the

Financial Services Authority, the UK.s unified regulator, with this responsibility. The

EU would create a European Systemic Risk Council made up of European central banks

and regulators and chaired by the president of the ECB.18 Other countries have yet to

fully specify how they would organize macro-prudential supervision.

Challenges at the National Level.  Implementing these principles at the national

level is not straightforward. To start, moving to higher capital requirements creates a

transition problem. Assuming that there is no appetite for a taxpayer gift to the banks, it

implies a long period of subdued lending as banks limit the growth of the denominator of

the capital-to-asset ratio. Then there are practical issues of how to reform other

dimensions of capital adequacy requirements. 

I'll let you savor the other centrally planned tidbits filed under the United Nations transparency file. Don't be afraid to go down the rabbit hole. :>)

I'm pretty certain Willard Mittens Romney is the next chosen one. The Obama Psyops have already started, how he is too collegiate for politics, how he is tired and bored of it. The good stuff is coming from his supporters.

I sense this too. The speech today he was like "I dont really want to do this anymore. 4 more years of fighting about $3000 tax credits for busineses to hire people to do jobs just so they can pay off their loans on crap they did not need in the first place"

The problem is Romney can not get elected. nobody is going to care what he did as govenor, they are going to be pissed about his personal taxes.

I love it. the guy they were going to give Obama the out to (if he wanted it) is un-electable.

TPTB don't need to go all JFK or even KGB on the good doctor. He's already advanced in years, so an ever-so-unfortunate heart-attack or aneurisym will not look suspicious to the 'dancing with the stars', 'the view', or 'jersey shore' crowd.

This even assumes they simply don't call up Agent Diebold and select the guy they want in the first place. Or even allow Paul the Oval Office (although I don't think the hordes of content gubment-dependent parasites will ever vote for him).....but then severely kneecap him through the use of their servant puppets in con-gress. He would be vetoing stuff 24/7, even his own desired legislation, because the slime-slurping vermin in congress would attach so much pork and other unconstitutional riders to such bills, that Paul would have no choice.

Now, if for some bizzarro reason TPTB DID opt for a messy 'wet' removal of Paul, then I believe there will indeed be some form of blowback from the slowly growing number of patriots.

They say one way to make Devil laugh is to tell him your plan. I agree Mitt was supposed to be Regan part II. But Uncle Warren is off the reservation. This Buffet rule stuff was the trap to catch romney and ensure obama the 2nd term if he wanted it.

Problem is, as I thought I was agreeing with your post, is that Obama was going to be given the option of "losing" the election to Mitt. Obama could be the Jimmy Carter and have a similar "you should have given me a second term legacy ...." That is fubar'ed now cause none of the candidates other than Ron Paul cam beat the dead people who have already absentee voted for Obama, much less the straight ticket types.

The wages of sin (in this case undeath) is that he will be forced to serve a second term with a terrible legacy. Or we can elect Ron Paul.

Ron Paul (as much as I respect him) standing next to a younger, smug Barry, at a debate is...

I hope I'm wrong. But I don't think so. They're being chosen (picked off, whatever) one by one...Chicago style, until they get the one they want for the American Idol crowd.

I have to disagree with you although I know exactly what you mean.  In a debate between the two, I think that Paul would come out with a more favorable impression.  People on the right and left are sick of the slick politico that Obama would be the sole representative of on the stage.  He spouts platitudes and Paul spouts substance.  That will have to resonate with many of the "likely voters" if not the mouth-breathing majority who will not hit the polls.

Also, I think a lot of the young people who overwhelmingly voted for Obama, are now wiser and more jaded, and "progressive" winds are blowing against the decidedly UN-progressive Obama.  They also identify in older people a wisdom lacking in their generation.  But that wisdom is seen as a survival skill for the times that they are about to face thanks, not to Paul's generation, but to Obama's and his mother's.  Many people said that Reagan was too old to win, but his age proved an electoral bonus to him after the unstaid political years of the younger and hipper Carter.  A similar dynamic may come into play here.

Of course, first Paul has to break to Clown Car Monopoly of the Republican nominating process...
