    • Democrat Debt Victory And The Decline Of Tea Party Republicans Kurt Nimmo Infowafrs.com December 13, 2013 Paul Ryan promenades with Dems as debt heads to stratosphere How do you like your refurbished tea party now, America? Last year Paul Ryan, who earlier this week cosigned future generations of Americans to crushing debt slavery, was billed as the ideological hero of the formerly libertarian movement. “It’s a big step toward what the tea party has been trying to accomplish,” Matt Kibbe, president and CEO of the Koch operation, FreedomWorks, said about Ryan’s selection as vice president last year. “It gives people a reason to be more enthusiastic about the Republican ticket,” he told the AP. “In Ryan, the tea party sees someone who adheres strictly to its core principles — individual rights, distrust of big government and an allegorical embrace of the Founding Fathers,” the AP reported. “Tea party activists exalt his willingness to address the large-scale Medicare and Social Security cutbacks he says are needed to rein in out-of-control spending.” They’re eating crow now. But to add insult to injury, the subsumed tea party, which was never more than a stage prop and cheering section for establishment Republicans, is experiencing a fall in corporate polls. “For the first time, a slim majority of Americans say they have an unfavorable opinion of the Tea Party movement,” Gallup reported on Wednesday. “About one-third view the movement favorably, a new low. A smaller percentage, 22%, in a separate question identify themselves as supporters of the movement, while 24% describe themselves as opponents. Nearly half (48%) are neutral.” Ryan’s betrayal gets worse. In addition to spending $63 billion more than the government currently spends, thus completely sabotaging the sequester, the Ryan-Murray budget deal contains a little noticed provision. On December 11, Jonathan Strong wrote: The bill includes language from the Senate Democrats’ budget that voids senators’ ability to
    • raise a budget “point of order” against replacing the sequester cuts with tax increases. The process is quite complicated, but in practice it grants Harry Reid the authority to send tax increases to the House with a bare majority, rather than the 60-vote threshold that would be required under a point of order. In short, tea party favorite Ryan has signed on to an effort by Democrats to increase spending and debt even more than previously imagined possible. The legislation now heads to the Democrat controlled Senate. How bad is Murray-Ryan? Judge Napolitano clues us in: Democrat Debt Victory and the Decline of Tea Party Republicans VIDEO BELOW http://www.infowars.com/democrat-debt-victory-and-the-decline-of-tea-party-republicans/ The IMF Wants You To Pay 71% Income Tax Sovereign Man blog December 13, 2013 The IMF just dropped another bombshell. After it recently suggested a “oneoff capital levy” – a one-time tax on private wealth as an exceptional measure to restore debt sustainability across insolvent countries – it has now called for “revenue-maximizing top income tax rates”. The IMF’s team of monkeys has been working around the clock on this one, figuring that developed nations can increase their overall tax revenue by increasing tax rates. They’ve singled out the US, suggesting that the US government could maximize its tax revenue by increasing tax brackets to as high as 71%. Coming from one of the grand wizards of the global financial system, this might be the clearest sign yet that the whole house of cards is dangerously close to being swept away. Think about it– solvent governments with healthy economies don’t go looking to steal 71% of people’s wealth. They’re raising this point because these governments are desperate. And flat broke. The ratio of public debt to GDP across advanced economies will reach a historic peak of 110% next year, compared to 75% in 2007. That’s a staggering increase. Most of the ‘wealithest’ nations in the West now have to borrow money just to pay interest on the money they’ve already borrowed. This is why we can only expect more financial repression from desperate governments and established institutions.This means more onerous taxation. More regulation. More controls over credit and capital flows. And that’s only the financial aspect; the deterioration of our freedom and liberty will continue at an accelerated pace.
    • Can a person still be considered “free” when 71% of what s/he earns is taken away at the point of a gun by a bankrupt, bullying government? Or are you merely a serf then, existing only to feed the system? This is why we often stress having a global outlook and considering all options that are on the table. Because the other side of the coin is that while some countries are tightening the screws and making life more difficult, others are taking a different approach. Whether out of necessity or because they recognize the trend, many nations around the world are launching new programs to attract international talent and capital. I’ve mentioned a few of these already– economic citizenship programs in places like Cyprus, Malta, and Antigua (I met a lot of these programs’ principals at a recent global citizenship conference that I spoke at in M iami). Then there are places like Chile and Colombia which have great programs for entrepreneurs and investors. Other places like Georgia and Panama have opened their doors to nearly all foreigners for residency. Bottom line– t here are options. Some countries are really great places to hold money. Others are great to do business. Others are great places to reside. The era we’re living in– that of global communications and modern transport– means that you can live in one place, your money can live somewhere else, and you can generate your income in a third location. Your savings and livelihood need not be enslaved by corrupt politicians bent on stealing your wealth… all to keep their destructive party going just a little bit longer. The world can truly be your playground. You just need to know the rules of the game.
    • Lawmakers Who Oversee Government Surveillance Programs Receive Millions From Intelligence Companies Joe Schoffstall Capitolcityproject.com December 13, 2013 Lawmakers who oversee government surveillance programs receive millions from intelligence companies Every member who sits on the committees that oversee government intelligence operations has received campaign contributions from the top twenty largest intelligence companies in the United States, according to a new report. Amid the NSA scandal, the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence — the committees in charge of oversight — denied stricter reform attempts to the NSA programs and instead propelled legislation aimed at restoring their trust. The committees are intended to keep waste, fraud, and abuse in check given most of these programs are hidden from the general public. Every single member on the committees received campaign contributions from the largest intelligence companies in the U.S. performing services for the the government. A report from Maplight, a nonpartisan research organization that reveals money in politics, highlights the donations from political action committees (PACs) and individuals from the intelligence services companies to these members. The report shows donations amount to over $3.7 million from 20052013. Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger (D- Md.), the highest ranking Democrat on the House committee, received the most amount of money. He was given $363,600 with $124,350 of this coming from a single company — Northrop Grumman. As the Center for Public Integrity notes, Rep. Ruppersberger’s
    • Maryland district includes the NSA. He is also a member of the “Gang of Eight” and receives extremely detailed intelligence reports that many other members do not receive. The second highest amount was given to Sen. Barbara Mikulski (D- Md.) who received $210,150. Sen. Mikulski also happens to be chairwomen of the Senate Appropriations Committee — a committee which allocates federal funds to a majority of government programs, including intelligence. Rep. Frank LoBiondo (R-N.J.) was given $205,345 — he is the second highest ranking Republican on the House Armed Services Tactical Air and Land Forces Subcommittee. Rep. James Langevin (D- R.I.) received $200,850 from intelligence companies’ PACs, top executives, and lobbyists. Langevin is the second highest ranking Democrat on the House Armed Services Intelligence Subcommittee. L-3 Communications, Lockheed Martin, CACI International, GTCR Golder Rauner L.L.C., SAIC Inc, Mission Essential, and Booz Allen Hamilton are among the top companies to contribute to committee members. Here are the top 20 intelligence companies to hand out donations: Chart via Maplight.org.
    • “It’s not clear from the report whether the contractors’ overall contributions to committee members have been rising,” writes the Center for Public Integrity. “During the 2005-2006 election campaign, when only nine of the current members served on the committees, the contractors gave those members a total of $344,954, it said. During the 2011-2012 campaign, they gave a total of $1,046,382 to 36 of the 40 current members of the committees, including to the nine members who joined the committee this year. The other four received industry contributions before 2011.” However, not all of the members defend the NSA programs. Sen. Ron Wyden (D- Ore.), a senior intelligence committee member, has been critical of their activities despite receiving $24,500. This also puts him at the bottom of the pack in relation to contributions to current committee members. INFOWARS.COM BECAUSE THERE'S A WAR ON FOR YOUR MIND
