In Cyprus, bank depositors reamed
by EU, IMF in bailout deal

American Thinker, by Rick Moran

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 3/17/2013 11:05:53 AM

How would you feel if your bank, through no fault of yours, needed a bailout and to help pay for it, the government demanded you give up 10% of your deposits? Yeah, I thought so. Wall Street Journal: Depositors in Cypriot banks will be hit with a one-off tax on their savings, as part of a €10 billion ($12.96 billion) bailout for the Mediterranean island from the euro zone and the International Monetary Fund. The deal, announced early Saturday, marks the first time in the euro zone´s five-year-old financial crisis

The bank holiday in Cyprus has been extended to Tuesday and will likely be extended further. The parliament still has to ratify the plan and it doesn´t look like they have the votes. The two biggest banks in Cyprus could fail. Lehman in the Mediterranean.

The non-elite, non-government people will be affected the most by this.

It´ll be interesting to see if the Parliament makes a political decision (not vote for it) or a fiscal decision.

Cyprus is a small country and this is a small bailout. I saw a short video about how a tiny domino held with tweezers knocked over an increasingly larger series of dominoes until the last one that weighed 100 pounds when over within a few seconds. This very well could happen in this situation in the world financial markets.

There´s been way too much phony optimism lately in our markets, propped up by the Fed´s money printing and market manipulation to create the illusion of wealth. Everyone has been willing to play along because they knew it was a rigged game in their favor. But now all bets are off. People will clamor to be the first at the exit door before the nightclub fireworks catch them in the pile of bodies at the door.

One big problem, its really hard to know which way to run in this thing. We might already be trapped.

What is at the heart of all these problems is world-wide socialism on the march for 70 years. The USA is almost as socialistic as Europe. We will burn down with them.

This is a test and if successful will spread across Europe and eventually come here (is there a difference in the goverment confiscating your IRAs and 401ks?).

Headsup! You will soon be hearing more about Bitcoins (digital currency) as a means to protect wealth. Understand, I am not stating Bitcoins are good or bad. You must do your own reseach on the topic.

Again, this is a test and regardless of its success; understand, we are serfs in the eyes of the government (US or EURO) and what you (we) have is what they want. Good Luck!

There´s no reason Germans should pick up the tab for corrupt bankers in Cyprus. Among the depositors were Russian oligarchs attempting to launder the spoils of nefarious deals.

#11 Somewhat true. Low interest as described in the article is more a lost opportunity, this however is taking what you have away from you (STEALING). #12 Yes a great many Russian "Businessmen" live in Cyprus and one can state money laundering is a problem; however, when the state starts to come after more and more of what is yours will you not try or wish you could get your money parked somewhere safe?

What is going to be interesting about this situation in the following weeks and months, is the Russian Mob reaction to what the bankers have done. There is no honor among thieves, and the bankstas and the Mob are the two biggest groups of thieves I know of. Outside of the Government that is.

The $VIX (Volatility Index) is at 11.300 right now, which is lower than it´s been since about February 2007, when it was at 10. During the panic and the market sell off of late 2008 the $VIX hit 89 intraday on October 24. It´s about to leap upward again. That means it´s going to cost more to invest, especially for those who trade in options, which are leveraged investment vehicles.

If investors become convinced that their capital is going to be confiscated by socialists whose policies have never created prosperity anywhere it´s been tried, there will be a mad rush into precious metals, commodities, choice real estate, and undeveloped land. Countries that treat investors like milch cows or, worse, like steers fatted for slaughter are going to lose their productive citizens. Wealth is mobile. So are people. Countries that try to pass laws to punish those from whom they´re stealing will be abandoned. It can happen here. If the economically illiterate Obama succeeds in implementing most of what he wants, this country is destined for a worse depression than the one that lasted from 1929-1946.

#8 I thought about that too, but don´t you think the federal government can put a hefty tax on land just like the states do? You can´t take your land and go to another country.

Having said that, I do know several people who have bought significant acreage in remote parts of Texas and West Virginia in anticipation of the chaos and rioting come soon to an urban area near you.

Long-term unemployed struggle
to find — and keep — jobs
Washington Post, by Ylan Q. Mui    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/18/2014 10:37:47 PM     Post Reply
For the long-term unemployed, finding a job is hard — but keeping one may be even harder. New research tracking people who have been out of work for six months or longer found that 23 percent of them landed a job within a few months of the study. But a year later, more than a third of that group was unemployed again or out of the labor force altogether. The findings are the latest in a bleak but growing body of literature suggesting long-term unemployment has become a trap that is difficult to escape. Economists say that means the long-term unemployed could become a permanent underclass, left behind by the nation’s broader

The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

Despite promises to the contrary, it appears that State Senator Wendy Davis (D-Fort Worth) voted on bills that affect her clients and favorably impact the bottom line of her law firm. “I have never done anything in a way that represents a conflict in my voting and something that would benefit me personally,” she said in an interview, but state records seem to tell a different story. The Dallas Morning News´ Senior Political Writer Wayne Slater (DMN) reported that Davis supported legislation governing a toll road project.

Democrats Lose Two More Special

Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

On the defensive about their prospects in the midterm elections this fall, congressional Democrats have spent all of April savaging the Republican budget proposal, decrying the Koch brothers and championing a series of bills meant to ingratiate themselves to struggling middle-class voters. In promoting legislation that would extend unemployment benefits, increase the minimum wage and promote equal pay for women, the Democrats have declared themselves the party that will ensure a “fair shot” for all. Republicans, they insist, are the party of special interests. It has been a classic Washington messaging campaign for these partisan

On a trip to Moscow early in her tenure as secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton played the role of international saleswoman, pressing Russian government officials to sign a multibillion-dollar deal to buy dozens of aircraft from Boeing. A month later, Clinton was in China, where she jubilantly announced that the aerospace giant would be writing a generous check to help resuscitate floundering U.S. efforts to host a pavilion at the upcoming World’s Fair. Boeing, she said, “has just agreed to double its contribution to $2 million.” Clinton did not point out that, to secure the donation, the State Department

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin blasted President Barack Obama for nominating as his new Health and Human Services Secretary the same woman who ordered the shutdown of the war memorials during the so-called government shutdown last year. After accepting Kathleen Sebelius´ resignation Friday, Obama nominated Sylvia Burwell, the former Office of Management and Budget director.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

The Obama administration said Friday that it would block Iran’s nominee as ambassador to the United Nations from entering the United States, setting up a new confrontation with Tehran just as relations with the Islamic republic appeared to be improving. The decision to bar entry to the diplomat, who was allegedly involved in the 1979 seizure of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, followed intense political pressure on the administration from Republicans and Democrats on Capitol Hill. But it also marked a rare instance in which Washington has effectively vetoed another country’s preferred choice as envoy to the United Nations. Iran

Distressed homeowners seeking

Struggling homeowners across the country could face significant new tax bills if they receive mortgage relief from their banks, a prospect that threatens to slow the housing recovery and put further strain on distressed borrowers. The collapse of the housing market and plunging home prices left millions of people stuck owing more on their mortgages than their homes were worth. Some have worked with their banks to reduce the loan amount to avoid foreclosure or enable a sale. In 2007, Congress adopted a law that spared those homeowners from being taxed on the amount of the loan that was forgiven. But

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police?

They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state?

And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own.

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations
