Breaking Bad (Debt)

By Jim Quinn

“At this juncture, the impact on the broader economy and financial markets of the problems in the subprime market seems likely to be contained.”Fed chairman, Ben Bernanke, Congressional testimony, March, 2007

“Capitalism without financial failure is not capitalism at all, but a kind of socialism for the rich.”James Grant, Grant’s Interest Rate Observer

The Federal Reserve issued their fourth quarter Report on Household Debt and Credit last week to the sounds of silence in the mainstream media. There were minor press releases issued by the “professional” financial journalists regurgitating the Federal Reserve’s storyline. Actual analysis, connecting the dots, describing how the massive issuance of student loan and auto loan debt has produced a fake economic recovery, and how the accelerating default rates in auto loans and student loans will produce the next subprime debt implosion, were nowhere to be seen on CNBC, Bloomberg, the WSJ, or any other status quo propaganda media outlet. Their job is not to analyze or seek truth. Their job is to keep their government patrons and Wall Street advertisers happy, while keeping the masses sedated, misinformed, and pliable.

Luckily, the government hasn’t gained complete control over the internet yet, so dozens of truth telling blogs have done a phenomenal job zeroing in on the surge in defaults. The data in the report tells a multitude of tales conflicting with the “official story” sold to the public. The austerity storyline, economic recovery storyline, housing recovery storyline, and strong auto market storyline are all revealed to be fraudulent by the data in the report. Total household debt grew by $117 billion in the fourth quarter and $306 billion for the all of 2014. Non-housing debt in the 4th quarter of 2008, just as the last subprime debt created financial implosion began, was $2.71 trillion. After six years of supposed consumer austerity, total non-housing debt stands at a record $3.15 trillion. This is after hundreds of billions of the $2.71 trillion were written off and foisted upon the backs of taxpayers, by the Wall Street banks and their puppets at the Federal Reserve.

"Anthropogenic Global Warming: Why I left the Religion"

Superb post at Small Dead Animals by Dr. Kyla Dillard, who explains in layman's terms why she abandoned her belief in man-caused global warming (or AGW). Some key graphs (emphases mine):

Because as a scientist, I can do the math. How do you explain the 18 years of zero temperature increases, when CO2 levels have continued to rise?

The computer model predictions have all failed, every single one of them.

I recommend Watts Up With That You can read the studies, they give all the links and analysis there.

Please don't Google 'deniers' & run back to me saying that it is not a credible site, go see the studies, the math, & the manipulation of data for yourself. Because there are literally trillions of dollars at stake, so of course there is a vested interest in keeping this thing going. If you disagree with something I say, quote me exactly which sentences you disagree with, then show me the actual research that contradicts what I have said.

Follow the money [and] you will see where the truth lies. Say it were true: If you believe that humans cause climate change, how does moving vast quantities of money help that? Exactly how would a carbon tax help and exactly when would we see the verification of that?

Australia's carbon tax was to take $139 billion out of the pockets of the taxpayers. Had it been successful, it was supposed to reduce CO2 from the atmosphere from 412 parts per million (ppm) all the way down to 411.87 ppm.

That would have been a reduction of 13/100 of a part per million. It is imperceptible The computer model predictions have ALL failed, yet people want other people, poor people, to die today due to lack of cheap energy and clean water.

...If there were no harm associated with the "green" policies, then it would not matter, but people are actually being harmed right now by energy poverty. People in Germany are illegally cutting wood in the historic Black Forest, just to heat their homes and stay alive. People are being forced to decide between heat and food, due to the massive increases in energy prices in Ontario, so that we can pay 15x the market rate for wind electricity and be forced to pay the Americans to take our excess electricity. Meanwhile, the only true green energy in Canada; hydroelectric power, has to be shut down to keep from destabilizing the grid when the wind is blowing. That's right, water is diverted from the turbines at Niagara Falls, so you can pay 15x the rate to subsidize big green. Don't lie to yourself, those are not wind farms, they are not farming the wind, they are farming the subsidies and taking money out of your pocket by theft.

Speaking of snipers, some interesting facts about the silent warriors:

• Snipers are trained to shoot between heartbeats
• While Chris Kyle was the most prolific American sniper in history, a Finnish soldier named Simo Häyhä had 705 kills during the Russo-Finnish War of 1939-1940; he accomplished the feat in less than 100 days operating in temperatures as cold as -40 degrees
• The name 'sniper' derives from the 1770s, where "soldiers in British India coined the verb 'to snipe,' meaning a soldier was good enough of a shooter to kill an elusive bird called a Snipe"

God Bless Our Warriors.

IT BEGINS: Obama's Ammo Ban Just the First Step in Killing Off the Modern Sporting Rifle

By Mac Slavo

If nothing else can be said about President Obama, he has adamantly stuck to one key promise – the one he made to the Brady Center to pursue gun control ‘under the radar.

The AR-15 is America’s most popular sporting rifle, and it has been falsely mischaracterized as an “automatic” firearm and an “assault” weapon. It has been demonized as a monstrosity via the Sandy Hook shootings. Bans on it and other so-called “assault weapons” have been attempted from every possible angle.

And now that those measures have failed to accomplish total gun control, the Obama Administration, hungry to undermine the 2nd Amendment and restrict gun ownership, is using backdoor regulations through the BATFE to ban the sale, import and manufacture of the most affordable ammunition for the AR-15. Melissa Melton writes:

“The Obama administration was unable to ban America’s most popular sporting rifle through the legislative process, so now it’s trying to ban commonly owned and used ammunition through regulation.”

HEY, WE CAN FINALLY NAME A HILLARY ACCOMPLISHMENT: She Successfully Lied to the Entire World About Benghazi

By Investor's Business Daily

Scandal: Documents from Judicial Watch show that Hillary Clinton's closest advisers knew from the onset, before she launched an inflammatory video lie, that Benghazi was a terrorist attack for which Ansar al-Sharia claimed responsibility.

'Mrs. Clinton, name an accomplishment," Carly Fiorina, former Hewlett-Packard CEO and prospective 2016 GOP presidential candidate, asked Thursday at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference.

Last year, when ABC's Diane Sawyer asked the former secretary of state that question, Mrs. Clinton changed the subject, not even bothering to mention dodging sniper fire in Bosnia.

Nor is she likely to mention Benghazi, a place now synonymous with the failure of the foreign policy she helped orchestrate. Benghazi has become yet another example of why our friends don't trust us and our enemies don't fear us.

As we have noted, at 10:07 p.m. Washington, D.C., time on Sept. 11, 2012, Clinton's State Department issued a statement that read: "Some have sought to justify this vicious behavior as a response to an inflammatory material posted on the Internet. ... Let me be clear: There is never any justification for violent acts of this kind."

This was the origin of the lie that the Benghazi terrorist attack was caused by an Internet video offensive to Muslims.

The Obama Democrats Abandon Israel in its Hour of Need

By Caroline Glick

It is hard to get your arms around the stubborn determination of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu today. For most of the nine years he has served as Israel’s leader, first from 1996 to 1999 and now since 2009, Netanyahu shied away from confrontations or buckled under pressure. He signed deals with the Palestinians he knew the Palestinians would never uphold in the hopes of winning the support of hostile US administrations and a fair shake from the pathologically hateful Israeli media.

In recent years he released terrorist murderers from prison. He abrogated Jewish property rights in Jerusalem, Judea, and Samaria. He agreed to support the establishment of a Palestinian state west of the Jordan River. He agreed to keep giving the Palestinians of Gaza free electricity while they waged war against Israel. He did all of these things in a bid to accommodate US President Barack Obama and win over the media, while keeping the leftist parties in his coalitions happy.

For his part, for the past six years Obama has undermined Israel’s national security. He has publicly humiliated Netanyahu repeatedly.

WARMAL COLDING TODAY: Anyone seen Al Gore lately?

Your local global cooling denier could not be reached for comment.

Remember all of those "2014 was the hottest year on record" stories we saw at the end of the year?

I know you'll be shocked, but the media were lying.

OBAMA WARNS ICE: Don't you dare enforce immigration law

By Investor's Business Daily

Immigration: If President Obama, who has warned ICE agents of consequences if they do their job, had a son, he might look like Jamiel Shaw Jr., a young African-American killed by an illegal alien who shouldn't have been here.

Shaw was a Los Angeles high school star dreaming of a good life ahead when he was gunned down on March 2, 2008, while walking home. He was picked at random, police said, possibly as part of a gang loyalty test for the illegal alien who shot him.

Charged with the crime was Pedro Espinoza, who'd been released just hours earlier from Los Angeles County Jail where he spent four months for brandishing a firearm and resisting arrest. Espinoza is an illegal alien.

Some will say, well, that was on President George W. Bush's watch. True, but it also occurred in Los Angeles, a sanctuary city where policy is not to cooperate with federal authorities on enforcing immigration laws or aid in deporting illegal aliens.

The sanctuary policies that led to the murder of Shaw are now full-blown federal policies under Obama. "We're not in the business of deporting millions of people or of breaking up families," he says. We're also not in the business of deporting criminal illegal aliens.

A BLACK MAN ASKS: Why do Black lives matter except when illegal aliens are killing Blacks?

By Sara Noble

Barack Obama will ignore the Texas injunction and do whatever he can to illegally circumvent the Constitution. He made that clear in a town hall appearance last evening.

The Senate has sent an immigration bill to the House that has stripped out the DHS funding provisions instead of doing the hard job of dealing with the Obama’s violations of the Constitution. It is a giveaway to Democrats and for their generosity, ABC news radio said today that the bill is being sent to the House to “punish Barack Obama.”

The president could care less that cartel members, criminals and terrorists are getting through the open borders.

Some are killers.

Illegal aliens are literally getting away with murder. Yesterday, families of loved ones murdered by illegal aliens, testified by Congress. One black man asked why black lives matter when murdered by whites but not when murdered by illegal aliens.

Levin further criticized those, in particular Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC), who were suggesting opponents of the president’s executive action on immigration should rely on the courts, and that claims of a DHS shutdown were a “flat out” lie." --Ian Hanchett

White House: Don’t Mention Temperature When Discussing Global Warming

By Michael Bastasch

First rule about global warming: don’t talk global warming.

The White House quietly released a draft guidance telling federal agencies to consider the impact more carbon dioxide emissions will have on the environment, but only in terms of how much more carbon dioxide will be emitted.

When conducting environmental impact analyses on rules and projects, federal agencies should only talk about carbon dioxide emissions increases — not things like potential increases in temperature, precipitation, storm intensity and other environmental impacts that scientists warn about.

“In light of the difficulties in attributing specific climate impacts to individual projects, [Council on Environmental Quality] recommends agencies use the projected [greenhouse gas] emissions and also, when appropriate, potential changes in carbon sequestration and storage, as the proxy for assessing a proposed action’s potential climate change impacts,” the White House wrote in its guidance federal regulatory agencies conducting environmental reviews.

Why is that? Federal environmental assessments will likely show regulations have a negligible impact on the environment in terms of temperature rises, sea level rises and such — indeed if every industrialized country stopped emitting carbon dioxide tomorrow, temperatures would only be reduced 0.21 degrees Celsius by 2100.

Hillary Clinton paid $300,000 for a speech lecturing the middle class on how they can make ends meet

Hopefully, her instructions reveal how I can make six figures a speech, which would certainly come in handy.

Can you imagine the hubris of this woman -- who has largely disappeared from public view as her "Smart Power" diplomacy initiatives have left the Middle East a boiling cauldron of death, torture, and pain -- to dare lecture middle class Americans on making ends meet?

During a speech in Silicon Valley, Clinton, the presumed Democratic presidential nominee in 2016, highlighted the displacement many workers have suffered as new technology has made many jobs obsolete. “The old jobs and careers are either gone or unrecognizable,” Clinton said, according to the Los Angeles Times. “The old rules just don’t seem to apply, and, frankly, the new rules just aren’t that clear. “[If] we want to find our balance again, we have to figure out how to make this new economy work for everyone.”

Clinton also addressed Silicon Valley’s male-centric culture, one factor responsible for a notable gender pay gap in the tech industry and a shortage of women in the field. “We’re going backward in a field that is supposed to be all about moving forward,” the former senator and secretary of state said. Clinton herself is a counterexample: She earned a reported $300,000 for her speech, comparable to what she usually gets and more than all but a few highly prized male speakers (including her husband).

In virtually every way -- and as documented by the very agencies he controls -- the policies of the current Democrat President have laid waste to "the middle class".

And that is precisely what Obama and Hillary were taught to do by their ideological mentor, Saul Alinsky.

UNCLENCHING THEIR FIST: Obama's Partners in Peace Destroy Mock U.S. Aircraft Carrier in Persian Gulf

Courtesy of The Tower, we get word of Iran's latest diplomatic initiatives, which are explicitly designed to assuage concerns about its nuclear ambitions.

Claiming “to ensure the stable security of the region,” Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) carried out war games in the Persian Gulf that included the sinking of a model of American aircraft carrier, Reuters reported today ... During the broadcast of the exercises over Iranian state television, a banner was flashed across the screen with the quote, “[i]f the Americans are ready to be buried at the bottom of the waters of the Persian Gulf – so be it.”

"“We will extend a hand if you [Iran] are unwilling to unclench your fist." --Barack Obama, January 2009

...The construction of the replica aircraft carrier was reported last year, only months after Iran broadcast a simulation of its forces attacking Israel and the American aircraft carrier U.S.S. Abraham Lincoln on state television.

Iran has often threatened American naval forces. Last year, IRGC Navy Forces Commander Brig. Gen. Ali Fadavi declared that his navy was preparing to sink American aircraft carriers. Fadavi has also threatened the United States to leave the Persian Gulf, saying, “Americans removal from the Gulf is one of the basic tasks of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards,” and boasting that Iran could destroy the American fleet in 50 seconds.

This latest naval threat against the United States comes as Iran and the West have stepped up diplomacy to complete a nuclear deal within the next month.

And despite repeated warnings that the Iranian regime intends to inflict harm on the West (e.g., "15 Photos From Iran's Revolution Day 2015 Demonstrations You'll Never See In Legacy Media"), it is Israel that the Obama administration chooses to demonize.

The headlines make that assessment unequivocal, from "Kerry questions Netanyahu's judgement over Iran deal" to "Susan Rice: Netanyahu's Address to Congress 'Destructive'."

The motives of Obama and his Iranian-born chief adviser Valerie Jarrett are truly unknown. But their actions make clear this much: they are intent on seeing Iran become a nuclear power.

As for their rationale, I leave that as an exercise for the reader.

The 72 Types Of Americans That Are Considered “Potential Terrorists” In Official Government Documents

By Michael Snyder

Are you a conservative, a libertarian, a Christian or a gun owner?  Are you opposed to abortion, globalism, Communism, illegal immigration, the United Nations or the New World Order?  Do you believe in conspiracy theories, do you believe that we are living in the “end times” or do you ever visit alternative news websites (such as this one)?

If you answered yes to any of those questions, you are a “potential terrorist” according to official U.S. government documents.

At one time, the term “terrorist” was used very narrowly.  The government applied that label to people like Osama bin Laden and other Islamic jihadists.  But now the Obama administration is removing all references to Islam from terror training materials, and instead the term “terrorist” is being applied to large groups of American citizens.

And if you are a “terrorist”, that means that you have no rights and the government can treat you just like it treats the terrorists that are being held at Guantanamo Bay.  So if you belong to a group of people that is now being referred to as “potential terrorists”, please don’t take it as a joke.  The first step to persecuting any group of people is to demonize them.  And right now large groups of peaceful, law-abiding citizens are being ruthlessly demonized.

Below is a list of 72 types of Americans that are considered to be “extremists” and “potential terrorists” in official U.S. government documents.  To see the original source document for each point, just click on the link.  As you can see, this list covers most of the country…

15 Photos From Iran's Revolution Day 2015 Demonstrations You'll Never See In Legacy Media #Obama #Nukes

Curiously, a massive wave of vicious anti-American sentiment in Iran has been utterly ignored by vintage media, even as the Obama administration does its level best to position the regime as a nuclear power.

Revolution Day 2015 In Iran: A Regime-Organized Display Of Hatred For U.S., Obama

On February 11, 2015, the Iranian regime marked the Islamic Revolution's 36th anniversary. Regime spokesmen, and first and foremost Iran's Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, emphasized in processions and speeches the anti-American character of Revolution Day, the Iranian regime's hatred for the United States and its yearning for America's downfall. Regime spokesmen motivated the public to participate in processions in which the regime's top leaders, including the heads of the pragmatic camp took part.

With nuclear negotiations between the U.S. and Iran in an attempt to reach an agreement soon in the background, the displays of hatred towards President Obama, depicted as hanging from a gallows, and towards Secretary of State Kerry, who was shown as a devious fox were prominent...

NEWLY REVEALED PENTAGON DOCUMENTS: Why, Yes, the White House Lied to Everyone About Benghazi

By Investor's Business Daily

Scandal: Heavily redacted documents show a military response had been drafted in answer to the Benghazi terrorist attack by a group supporting "an Islamic state" in Libya. It also showed the attack wasn't inflamed by a video.

It's taken Judicial Watch two years to obtain from the most transparent administration in history the 486 pages of documents pertaining to the military response to the Sept. 11, 2012, terrorist attack on our Benghazi diplomatic mission. They confirm what we have said repeatedly, that the Benghazi tale spun by President Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was indeed a lie agreed upon.

Despite heavy redaction, they show that the real "JV team" — a term applied by Obama to the deadly Islamic State — resides in the White House. The papers reveal, for instance, that at one point the military relied on a photo from a Twitter post to determine the status of Ambassador Christopher Stevens, who was killed with Foreign Service Information Management Officer Sean Smith in the first of two attacks.

Several hours later — hours during which a rescue or support attempt arguably could have been made — terrorists killed CIA contractors and former Navy SEALs Ty Woods and Glen Doherty.

The documents confirm the administration lied in insisting the attacks were nothing more than a spontaneous protest over a video offensive to Muslims — protests that escalated to the point participants spontaneously pulled out their mortars and rocket-propelled grenades.

OBAMA WAS RIGHT: Muslims woven into the fabric of our national history (he just forgot the word "fighting")

By Keith Farrell

President Obama has continually asserted that Islam was “woven into the fabric” of the United States since its founding. Obama claims that Muslims have made significant contributions to building of this nation. The claim is laughable to anyone who has studied US history. Historian David Barton spoke to Glenn Beck and tore the president’s claims apart.

Barton found the first real contribution any Muslim made was in 1856 (80 years after the founding) when then Secretary of War Jefferson Davis hired one Muslim to help train camels in Arizona. Not exactly a resounding contribution, since the plan to fight Native Americans via camelback was soon dismissed.

But Muslims did have an influence on early America, and that influence was one of a foe. After winning its independence from England, American vessels no longer enjoyed British protection. France, dismayed that the US would not aid it in its war against England, also ceased protection of American ships. The result led to American vessels being raided and plundered by Muslim pirates from the Barbary Coast.

After agreeing to pay 10% of the new nations dismal GDP in exchange for passage, attacks continued. Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, and Benjamin Franklin were sent as representatives to mediate the problem. It was there that they discovered that the Islamic law the pirates followed made it their duty to attack non-Muslims.

Obama's Mysterious Mentor "Frank" Resurfaces

By Cliff Kincaid

Yesterday’s news became big news on the Fox News Channel last week when former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani brought up the name of President Barack Obama’s childhood mentor, Frank Marshall Davis. It was almost seven years to the day when we published our seminal piece about Davis, “Obama’s Communist Mentor.”

Davis was a member of the Communist Party and a suspected Soviet espionage agent. He was included in the FBI’s security index, meaning that Davis could be arrested or detained in the event of a national emergency. The FBI file on Davis documents his anti-white and pro-Soviet views, infiltration of the Hawaii Democratic Party, and other activities.

Davis also wrote an autobiographical and pornographic sex novel, Sex Rebel, disclosing that he had sex with a young girl and engaged in shocking and bizarre sexual activities.

Giuliani’s public identification of Davis and discussion of his role in grooming a young Barack Obama marks the first time, in my memory, that a top Republican has ever mentioned the Davis-Obama relationship. It was done in the context of Fox News’ Megyn Kelly of questioning how Giuliani could dare ask whether Obama loves America.

If the Republicans had brought this up during the 2008 campaign, Obama might have been defeated and the country could have been spared the last six years of “progressive” hope and change. The Davis-Obama relationship is something so damaging and corrupt that its public airing would have raised questions about the Democratic Party’s vetting of Obama and the direction of the Democratic Party itself.

COMFORTING: Mall of America Protected from Jihadist Terror Attack by Sternly Worded Gun-Free Zone Signs

By Dean Weingarten

A Somali affiliate of al Qaeda has called for attacks against Western shopping malls, which they see as soft targets. The call for attacks was seen in a video celebrating the attack on the Westgate shopping mall in Nairobi, Kenya.


“If just a handful of mujahedeen [militant jihadists] fighters could bring Kenya to a complete standstill for nearly a week, just imagine what the dedicated mujahedeen could do in the West to American or Jewish shopping centers across the world,” a masked gunman says toward the end of the video. “What if such an attack were to occur in the Mall of America in Minnesota? Or the West Edmonton Mall in Canada? Or in London’s Oxford Street?”

England is notorious for the number of radicalized Muslim immigrants that are in the country, as is Minneapolis, Minnesota, where a large population of Somali Muslims has been imported and resettled by the American government. Edmonton, Canada, also has a significant population of Somali Muslim immigrants from which jihadis are being recruited.

The threats seem credible, but as people are banned from carrying firearms in all three locations, the “gun free zone” signs may provide some protection.

Virtually all of Canada and England are Gun Free Zones, as self defense is not considered a valid reason for citizens to carry guns in those countries. But a crucial difference exists in the United States. The malls in Canada and England lack the protection of gun free zone signs. In comparison, the Mall of America, in Minneapolis, has particularly large and prominent gun free zone signs, as shown above.

While gun free zone signs have failed in a number of locations, it may be that they were not large enough or prominent enough. John Lott, an academic who has studied these shootings, makes this statement.

GREAT JOB, GOV. KASICH: More than two-thirds of Ohio's "Obamacare enrollees" are actually on Medicaid

By Jason Hart

More than two thirds of the Ohioans insured under Obamacare are covered by the law’s optional Medicaid expansion.

A total of 234,507 Ohioans have selected a private insurance policy through the federally run Obamacare exchange at, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services reported Wednesday.

As of January, enrollment in Ohio Gov. John Kasich’s Obamacare Medicaid expansion was 492,121. For every Ohioan choosing an Obamacare exchange plan, two have enrolled in the Obamacare Medicaid expansion.

Millions of private health insurance policies nationwide were canceled as a result of Obamacare, but state and federal officials have not disclosed how many of the Ohioans covered under Obamacare were previously insured.

Because Medicaid reimbursement rates to care providers are so low, nearly 40 percent of Ohio State Medical Association doctors surveyed last year said they planned to accept fewer Medicaid patients in 2015.

Ohio Medicaid beneficiaries currently pay no premiums, and — assuming they can find a doctor — they receive the same “minimum essential benefits” Obamacare requires for policies sold at

The exchange offers premium subsidies to Ohioans whose income is between 100 and 400 percent of the federal poverty line. Medicaid expansion coverage extends to 138 percent of the poverty line.

Actual exchange enrollment is likely lower than reported by the Obama administration. HHS figures are inflated by including individuals who choose an exchange plan but never pay a premium, Forbes editor and Manhattan Institute senior fellow Avik Roy explained in a Wednesday story.

QOTD: "We should, [Obama] said, be listening to, instead of the terrorists, “Muslim clerics and scholars” who “push back on this twisted interpretation” and assure us “that the Koran says, ‘Whoever kills an innocent, it is as if he has killed all mankind.’”

The Koran does indeed say that, in Sura 5:32. Yet, in the very next verse, conveniently omitted by Obama (5:33), it goes on to say:

The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger, and strive with might and main for mischief through the land, is: execution, or crucifixion, or the cutting off of hands and feet from opposite sides, or exile from the land: That is their disgrace in this world, and a heavy punishment is theirs in the hereafter.

That puts a somewhat different cast on the whole “whoever kills an innocent” theme, wouldn’t you say?" --Andrew C. McCarthy
