New Interview on the Keiser Report – “Bankers Lives Matter” Part 1 of 2

Earlier this week, I had the great pleasure to return as a guest on the always excellent Keiser Report. This is my first interview of 2015, as I’ve been intentionally avoiding them in order to focus on my writing.

I come in at the 12:40 mark, but I strongly suggest watching the entire thing. You don’t want to miss Max’s “buy recommendation” on ticker, GENOCIDE. Simply brilliant television.

Enjoy!

How Progressive – Private Prison Company Lobbyists are Raising Funds for Hillary

Screen Shot 2015-07-24 at 1.56.55 PM

Earlier this week, we learned that lobbyists for Monsanto, Exxon Mobil, Microsoft and the Telecom industry are actively raising funds for the pantsuit revolutionary, Hillary Clinton. Today, we can add private prison companies to the list. Because private prisons are sooooooo progressive.

From the Intercept:

As immigration and incarceration issues become central to the 2016 presidential campaign, lobbyists for two major prison companies are serving as top fundraisers for Hillary Clinton.

So Yeah, Hillary Clinton Did Send Classified Emails From Her Private Account After All

Screen Shot 2015-04-09 at 12.09.13 PM

I did not email any classified material to anyone on my email. There is no classified material. So I’m certainly well aware of the classification requirements and did not send classified material.

– Hillary Clinton’s public comments on the EmailGate scandal back in March

Two inspectors general have asked the Justice Department to open a criminal investigation into whether sensitive government information was mishandled in connection with the personal email account Hillary Rodham Clinton used as secretary of state, senior government officials said Thursday.

The request follows an assessment in a June 29 memo by the inspectors general for the State Department and the intelligence agencies that Mrs. Clinton’s private account contained “hundreds of potentially classified emails.” The memo was written to Patrick F. Kennedy, the under secretary of state for management.

– From today’s New York Times article: Criminal Inquiry Is Sought in Clinton Email Account

So in today’s news — the grass is green, the sky is blue, the sun is shining in Colorado, and the pantsuit revolutionary was caught in another lie.

Will Donald Trump Run as a 3rd Party Candidate?

Screen Shot 2015-07-24 at 11.07.16 AM

Regular Liberty Blitzkrieg readers will be well aware of the fact that I’m a huge fan of Martin Armstrong’s work. While I disagree with him on several key topics, including Bitcoin, his long-term macro forecasting record has no equal. One of his key forecasts for many years now is that 2015.75, or September 30/October 1, will represent a key negative inflection point, i.e., a downturn in his “economic confidence model.” One of his other key forecasts, has been that the 2016 Presidential election will usher in significant 3rd party activity.

When I heard him make this claim a couple of years ago, it seemed pretty far fetched. There didn’t seem to be anyone on the scene with the resources and support to launch a real 3rd party push. That is, until Donald Trump exploded onto the scene. While Trump has been running in the Republican primary, it seems pretty clear that the GOP establishment wants nothing to do with him. As such, even Trump himself has come out in recent days hinting at a potential independent run.

We learn from the Hill that:

Introducing the “Male Feminist”

Screen Shot 2015-07-23 at 2.19.01 PM

Screen Shot 2015-07-23 at 2.19.22 PM

Screen Shot 2015-07-23 at 2.19.47 PM

It isn’t every day that you’re introduced to a new subculture. Just last week, I was exposed to an article written by someone named Michael Sonmore, who cheerily explains how grateful he is that his wife convinced him that her sleeping around with whomever she pleases is a great way for him to experience and appreciate feminism.

Honestly, I’m still not convinced that this guy actually exists, or that the story is real. I simply can’t fathom how a father of two young children could be so completely gullible and stupid to conclude that a man must degrade himself in order to respect women. Moreover, what woman would actually want to be with a man so spineless, childish and idiotic in the first place? Obviously not her, which is why she cunningly convinced him to raise their children, while she’s in the back seat of their suburban with the plumber.

While I could go on and on, I’d rather just let you read it yourself. Apparently New York Magazine is so desperate for clicks, they thought this was worthy of publishing. From NY Mag:

As I write this, my children are asleep in their room, Loretta Lynn is on the stereo, and my wife is out on a date with a man named Paulo. It’s her second date this week; her fourth this month so far. If it goes like the others, she’ll come home in the middle of the night, crawl into bed beside me, and tell me all about how she and Paulo had sex. I won’t explode with anger or seethe with resentment. I’ll tell her it’s a hot story and I’m glad she had fun. It’s hot because she’s excited, and I’m glad because I’m a feminist.

Another VA Scandal – GI Bill Funnels Taxpayer Money to Masturbation Classes, “Hate Churches” and More

Screen Shot 2015-07-23 at 10.54.09 AM

Iraq War veteran David Rodriguez steps into a softly lit classroom at the Institute for Advanced Study of Human Sexuality in San Francisco, crosses his legs and sits on a pillow in front of an altar decorated with a rope, a model of a penis and a statue of a Hindu god.

Rodriguez, a retired Navy lieutenant commander who led an engineering battalion that dismantled roadside bombs, is here for a class on “sexual bodywork.” When instruction begins, he will join his classmates in practicing different forms of masturbation.

“They do vulva massage and penis massage and anal massage,” said instructor Ariadne H. Luya, who holds a Ph.D. from the institute, an unaccredited graduate school founded in 1976 by an iconoclastic Methodist minister who amassed a large collection of erotic art and pornographic films, including child pornography, that is kept at the school.

“We want to get people out of their ruts. Have you been masturbating the same way for 20 years?” she asked rhetorically. “How’s that going for you? Would you like to try something new?”

Rodriguez is funding his studies with the GI Bill, which means taxpayers are covering his tuition to pursue a doctorate in human sexuality – more than $20,000 over the past two years.

But in the absence of strong government oversight, Reveal has found a gold rush of 2,000 schools cashing in on the exemption. The list includes schools set up to make a profit by teaching blackjack, scuba diving, dog grooming, taxidermy and yoga. Many are owned by individuals who’ve gone bankrupt or failed to pay their taxes. A handful are owned by convicted felons…

Back at the Institute for Advanced Study of Human Sexuality in San Francisco, the Rev. Ted McIlvenna, the school’s president, walks down a narrow hallway cluttered with erotic paintings and sculptures, pornographic magazines and reel after reel of pornographic films.

“This is where we keep the kiddie porn,” he said, pointing at a 10-foot-long locked cabinet. “You have to have a doctorate to open it.”

– From the Reveal article: GI Bill Pays for Unaccredited Sex, Bible and Massage Schools

If you feel you’ve had enough Department of Veteran’s Affairs (VA) related scandals for one lifetime, you’ve come to the wrong place. I’m sure all Liberty Blitzkrieg readers will recall the huge outcry last year when it was revealed that some of those unfortunate Americans who sacrificed themselves in wars for imperial dominance and overseas profits, were left hung out to dry by the VA. So much so, that some vets even died while waiting for healthcare within the VA system.

Not to worry though. Under the GI Bill, taxpayers are funding all sorts of “learning” at unaccredited schools, including masturbation classes at San Francisco’s Institute for Advanced Study of Human Sexuality, hate sermons at places such as the Oklahoma Baptist College and Institute, and all sorts of other scams run by convicted felons. I wish I was making this up.

New York Times Reports – “Fannie and Freddie are Back, Bigger and Badder Than Ever”

Screen Shot 2015-07-22 at 3.08.07 PM

Just in case you still harbored any doubt that absolutely zero lessons were learned from the cataclysmic financial collapse of 2008/09. We learn from the New York Times that:

AFTER the financial crisis of 2008, there was one thing that almost everyone agreed on. The government-sponsored mortgage giants, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, had to go. While shareholders and executives reaped the profits from Fannie and Freddie in good times, taxpayers were stuck with the bill in a crisis. President Obama described their dysfunctional business model as “Heads we win, tails you lose.” But here we are, seven years after the crisis, and nothing has changed.

In the 2008 crisis, when it looked as if Fannie and Freddie might go bankrupt, Henry M. Paulson Jr., then the Treasury secretary, argued that their fall would cause economic catastrophe. Foreign investors, stuck with their securities, would panic, and the mortgage market would shut down. So Fannie and Freddie were put into something called conservatorship, and are now government controlled, supported by a line of credit from the Treasury.

How Jeb Bush’s Recent Speech Bashing Lobbyists Was Organized by Lobbyists

Screen Shot 2015-07-22 at 12.08.37 PM

Last week, the Clinton, Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio campaigns filed reports with the Federal Election Commission to list their lobbyist bundlers, revealing that all three have relied on Akin Gump for campaign cash. In Clinton’s case, her campaign not only used Akin Gump lobbyists as bundlers, but the Clinton campaign treasurer, Jose H. Villarreal, works for Akin Gump’s lobbying division, though he is not registered as a lobbyist. In addition, former Sen. John Sununu, R-N.H., who is now employed by Akin Gump, has been tapped to raise money for the presidential campaign of Gov. John Kasich, R-Ohio, who kicked off his candidacy on Tuesday.

“As a result of the breadth and depth of our experience and relationships, our firm is well positioned to represent its clients — regardless of which party controls the legislative or executive branch,” boasts the Akin Gump website, touting the firm’s lobbying practice.

– From the Intercept article:  Lobbyists Fundraising for Clinton, Bush, Rubio and Kasich Are Coworkers

The most amusing aspect of the run-up the 2016 U.S. Presidential election is to watch establishment Democrat and Republican candidates scramble to reinvent themselves to fit the dramatically changed political environment. While a sizable portion of the American public remains clueless about virtually everything happening the world around them, enough people have woken up to the disastrous fraud that is the two-party political system and they’ve had enough. As a result, you see establishment clowns like Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush scramble to pretend to be outsiders when they are the consummate insiders. Naturally, this is impossible and watching them flail and flounder like fish out of water is extremely gratifying.

Before I get into the meat of this post, a great article published at the Intercept today demonstrates just how completely captured by corporate money these useless candidates really are. We learn that:

Here’s What Happens When Hackers Shut Down a Jeep’s Engine Going 70mph on a Highway

Screen Shot 2015-07-22 at 10.43.35 AM

Some of you have probably already read Wired’s shocking article published yesterday titled: Hackers Remotely Kill a Jeep on the Highway—With Me in It. If not, I strongly suggest getting caught up.

If two guys working out of a basement estimate they can hack 471,000 vehicles made by Chysler from their couch, just imagine what a more sophisticated and well funded team can do.

Here are some excerpts from Wired:

I WAS DRIVING 70 mph on the edge of downtown St. Louis when the exploit began to take hold. 

Though I hadn’t touched the dashboard, the vents in the Jeep Cherokee started blasting cold air at the maximum setting, chilling the sweat on my back through the in-seat climate control system. Next the radio switched to the local hip hop station and began blaring Skee-lo at full volume. I spun the control knob left and hit the power button, to no avail. Then the windshield wipers turned on, and wiper fluid blurred the glass.

As I tried to cope with all this, a picture of the two hackers performing these stunts appeared on the car’s digital display: Charlie Miller and Chris Valasek, wearing their trademark track suits. A nice touch, I thought.

The Jeep’s strange behavior wasn’t entirely unexpected. I’d come to St. Louis to be Miller and Valasek’s digital crash-test dummy, a willing subject on whom they could test the car-hacking research they’d been doing over the past year. The result of their work was a hacking technique—what the security industry calls a zero-day exploit—that can target Jeep Cherokees and give the attacker wireless control, via the Internet, to any of thousands of vehicles. Their code is an automaker’s nightmare: software that lets hackers send commands through the Jeep’s entertainment system to its dashboard functions, steering, brakes, and transmission, all from a laptop that may be across the country.

How Lobbyists for Monsanto, Exxon Mobil, Microsoft and the Telecom Industry are Bundling Funds for Hillary

Screen Shot 2015-07-21 at 3.08.33 PM

The pantsuit revolutionary is at it again. Once again demonstrating her populist chops by employing the services of lobbyists to bundle millions in campaign funds. It’s no wonder opinion polls on her have been plunging as of late.

We learn from Bloomberg that:

When Barack Obama was running for the presidency in 2008—and later for reelection in 2012—he promised he wouldn’t take money from registered lobbyists, not even as bundlers. In the race to succeed him, Hillary Clinton is not following in his footsteps.

The former secretary of state raised more than $2 million from 40 “bundlers”—fundraisers who get their contacts to give to campaigns—who were also lobbyists, according to financial forms released Wednesday by the Federal Election Commission. In all, the Clinton campaign raised $46.7 million between the beginning of April and the end of June.
