On June 25, everything changed and reality entered the room again!

Not holding back at all...and spot on.
For the last couple weeks, my attention has been given to the amusement and desperation behind propaganda, bluffs, and the utter desperation of the USFederal Reserve in the orchestrated rumors of a new position wherein they would soon or eventually raise the official interest rate in order to combat the horrendous price inflation brought about by the falling crippled USDollar. What utter nonsense! To hear that the investment community actually accepted and embraced this notion was laughable on its face, and served as continued evidence that the loose collection of investors, speculators, and observers simply cannot wake up reality despite the events that began last August 2007 when the mortgage debacle ripped the banking system wide open with gaping wounds. The USFed needs to arrest the falling USDollar, no doubt. But it cannot. The USFed needs to stem the price inflation, no doubt. But it cannot. This parasite central banker organization has its own track record of inflation boom & bust, complete with profound destruction. The USFed does not control the shallow and ineffective USGovt policies on ethanol, trade sanctions, geopolitical isolation, crackdown on oil speculators, and delay for actual mortgage bailout programs. The USGovt collectively is responsible for the chronic budget deficits and huge USTreasury Bond sales every year. The USMilitary is the largest single non-govt user of gasoline, diesel, and jet fuel in the world, yet nobody seems to point a finger at endless war as another reason why the crude oil price is high.

The US Federal Reserve oversees the sequences of credit explosions, fails in its rational regulation, orders hidden subsidies to Wall Street banks, justifies the colossal inflation permitted, and under-writes the last bubble bust with more liquidity. It fails to comprehend that the sequence has gutted the national economy. The ongoing drama must be watched closely. The USFed on Wednesday was laid bare in its legless weakness and incapacity. They revealed they are in a corner, trapped, stuck in an unresolvable dilemma. Its propaganda was stripped. Its bluffs were called and they blinked. Its desperation is vividly and tragically clear. Enough on these guys, these charlatans, these improperly revered destructive parasites on the body economic!
The Matrix is dead.

You're gonna want to read all of this.

Farming oil

The Holy Grail in the renewable energy sector has been to create a clean, green process which uses only light, water and air to create fuel. Valcent's HDVB algae-to-biofuel technology mass produces algae, vegetable oil which is suitable for refining into a cost-effective, non-polluting biodiesel. The algae derived fuel will be an energy efficient replacement for fossil fuels and can be used in any diesel powered vehicle or machinery.
...also produces jet fuel.

Two fine videos on the website explain the up-and-running
plant and process, one for diesel and one for growing edibles.

Now that you've got your plot of land, donkey, and wooden hoe...

SUCCESS comes to the man who so works that his efforts will bring the most and the best results -- not to the man who simply works hard. It is the know-how, things-to-do-with and economy that count. Labor-saving machinery has revolutionized many a trade and industry. It has made farming an industry and a science of possibilities undreamed of and unattainable a hundred years ago. But it is not enough for the modern farm to be equipped with the best tools and machinery that shops and factories turn out, to know how to use them and keep them in repair. There are many handy devices, not made in any factory and not sold in any store, that every intelligent man can make himself, which save money and labor and time. Inventive men are constantly contriving simple but valuable things to meet the needs of their own practical experience. We are all the time hunting after and gathering these ideas. Now we are putting a lot of the best ones into this book. We are trying, by words and pictures, to explain clearly just how to make each device. Everything described is tried and practical. Some are old, many are new, all are good for the purpose intended. They represent the practical, successful experience of farmers and other wide-awake workers all over the United States.
...published in 1910.

I've made a folder and saved all 10 chapters on my computer.

You're on your own, as always.

Note about saving those chapters:

Using Firefox 2, right clicking each chapter selecting
'Save link as...' gave me files that came without
illustrations so I then opened each chapter in a new tab
and did 'Control + s' on each one which resulted in files
with illustrations.

The Book.

In case you didn't notice...

You gotta laugh, watching The Big Monkeys in Charge fuckin' footballs.
On the occasion of this 26th – Summer 2008 Special – edition of the Global Europe Anticipation Bulletin, the LEAP/E2020 team has decided to launch an alert on the July-December 2008 period. Indeed, our team is now convinced that this period will consist for the whole world in a major plunge into the heart of the phase of impact of the global systemic crisis. The upcoming six months are in fact the core of the unfolding crisis. The troubles met in the past six months were mere harbingers.

In a few weeks time (after the next G8- and other organisations-meetings have taken place), when it will be confirmed that there is no way to stabilise the US currency (not to mention the eccentric idea of pushing it up) because the US economy is sinking always deeper into the recession and because the world is already filled with US Dollars no one knows what to do with, then the global financial system will burst out in various sub-systems trying to survive as much as they can before a new global financial equilibrium is found (4). As he is embarking on this road to nowhere, consciously or not, voluntarily or not, Ben Bernanke is signing the end of the current financial system. The return to a “strong Dollar” is a bit like the « liberation of Iraq » : wishful thinking turning into a nightmare.
No, it's putting on only a show to keep the rubes playing the game.

Time to dump that game. The bottom is unknown.

"Hyperinflationary Depression Remains Likely As Early as 2010."

Probably sooner then back to barter we go or hard currency.
The U.S. has no way of avoiding a financial Armageddon. Bankrupt sovereign states most commonly use the currency printing press as a solution to not having enough money to cover their obligations. The alternative would be for the U.S. to renege on its existing debt and obligations, a solution for modern sovereign states rarely seen outside of governments overthrown in revolution, and a solution with no happier ending than simply printing the needed money. With the creation of massive amounts of new fiat (not backed by gold) dollars will come the eventual complete collapse of the value of the U.S. dollar and related dollar-denominated paper assets.

Fake money exposed

Saturday, June 14, 2008

Are you ready yet for the red pill?

The state's two political parties are essentially, like the state itself, gangs of thieves. The US state is the biggest, richest, most powerful gang in the history of the world. It thinks nothing of murdering a million people in Iraq, or extracting by force from the American people trillions of dollars a year, or spying on our emails and phone calls and bank accounts, or torturing prisoners, or committing a thousand and one other crimes. When one line in the federal register can take billions from some interest group, or transfer billions to some other, we can hardly be surprised that people involved in politics will go to any length--any length--to keep the power and pelf flowing. The vast majority of people who go into politics are motivated by what St. Augustine called the lust to dominate and rule others. So they are naturally inclined to every sort of aggression against person and property.

To the point

For an economy run largely on credit, this is devastating...
The banking “industry” slept like a dog through the climax of the political primary season. Meanwhile, the banks sucked in scores of billions in cheap loans from the Federal Reserve, using bundles of devalued-to-worthless “innovative” securities as collateral. This dodge has worked for about three months, allowing them to pay their employees and cover their electric bills, and is now collapsing because American society can’t maintain the flow of repayment on current debts and can’t take on any additional debt – meaning both the regular “churn” of revenue flowing to the banks is impaired at the same time that fees for originating new loans cannot be generated. Uh Oh.

Everyday Anarchy

Our core fantasy of “government” is that in some remote and sunlit chamber, with lacquered mahogany tables, deep leather chairs and sleepless men and women, there exists a group who are so wise, so benevolent, so omniscient and so incorruptible that we should turn over to them the education of our children, the preservation of our elderly, the salvation of the poor, the provision of vital services, the healing of the sick, the defense of the realm and of property, the administration of justice, the punishment of criminals, and the regulation of virtually every aspect of a massive, infinitely complex and ever-changing social and economic system. These living man-gods have such perfect knowledge and perfect wisdom that we should hand them weapons of mass destruction, and the endless power to tax, imprison and print money – and nothing but good, plenty and virtue will result.

And then, of course, we say that the huddled and bleating masses, who could never achieve such wisdom and virtue, not even in their wildest dreams, should all get together and vote to surrender half their income, their children, their elderly and the future itself to these man-gods.

This is big...very big. Bring it to the attention of your local sheriff...

...but if he's a tyrant, you might not want to.

Don't we always have more control over a local tyrant than one from outside?

This could be the beginning and the end of a Real Revolution.

Succeed with seceding...
Bighorn County Sheriff Dave Mattis spoke at a press conference following a recent U.S. District Court decision (Case No. 2:96-cv-099-J (2006)) and announced that all federal officials are forbidden to enter his county without his prior approval ......

"If a sheriff doesn’t want the Feds in his county he has the constitutional right and power to keep them out, or ask them to leave, or retain them in custody."

The genius of Mark Twain

Sometimes I wonder whether the world is being run by smart people who are putting us on or by imbeciles who really mean it. -- Mark Twain
What a guy, Mark.

I go for the latter. Based on my observations, we're all dumber 'n at least one box o' rox.

You may not have a choice

Regular visitors to this blog know what I mean by that title.
Since almost none of the rules that bring peace and order to our existence were created by government, little argument should be required to establish that government is not necessary to create such rules. On the contrary, it is precisely the rules that were created by government that tend to undermine peace and order.

Only government legislation, which is law that is consciously created by whatever constitutes the politically dominant interest, can give us rules that restrict the freedom of some to advance the interests or personal beliefs of others.
