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.

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.

Supreme Court upholds Michigan’s
ban on racial preferences
in university admissions
Washington Post, by Robert Barnes    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/22/2014 10:09:17 PM     Post Reply
The Supreme Court on Tuesday made clear that states are free to prohibit the use of racial considerations in university admissions, upholding Michigan’s constitutional amendment banning affirmative action. By a vote of 6 to 2, the court concluded that it was not up to judges to overturn the 2006 decision by Michigan voters to bar consideration of race when deciding who gets into the state’s universities. The ruling could encourage other states to join the handful that have such prohibitions, including California and Florida. Higher-education officials have warned that those states have seen a decline in the number of minorities

Court rules Obama administration

The Obama administration must release internal legal documents justifying the targeted killings worldwide of Americans and foreigners suspected of terrorism, a federal appeals court ruled Monday. The decision in a case brought by The New York Times, two of its reporters and the American Civil Liberties Union likely will shed new light on the administration’s use of drones to target terrorists abroad. That program has resulted in the deaths of American citizens, such as leading al Qaeda figure Anwar al-Awlaki, killed by a drone strike in Yemen in 2011. Administration officials had sought to keep internal memorandums regarding the killings

Massachusetts representative Stephen Lynch isn’t just worried about the negative impact Obamacare will have on his party’s performance this fall — he also thinks its worst effects on our health-care system are still to come. Lynch, who voted against the Affordable Care Act in 2010, warned that the situation is “going to hit the fan” when the law’s delayed provisions go into effect down the road. “There are parts of Obamacare, or the Affordable Care Act, that were postponed because they are unpalatable,” he told Boston Herald Radio.

In internal government documents with potential repercussions for the 2016 presidential election, top officials at the U.S. Agency for International Development repeatedly cited former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton for setting into motion a policy to waive restrictions on who could receive U.S. aid in Afghanistan, resulting in millions of dollars in U.S. funds going directly into the coffers of Afghan ministries known to be rife with corruption. References to Mrs. Clinton’s role in the policy first appeared in a November 2012 USAID action memo, which outlined how U.S. officials made a “strategic foreign-assistance

Every week I want to be number one, and we fight like hell to get there. And it’s tough right now.

Long-term unemployed struggle

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

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

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine. To help picture the future, Martin Vargic, an amateur graphic designer from Slovakia, has created a map depicting the planet with sea levels around 260ft (79m) higher than they are today.

Harry Reid isn’t backing down from his claim that rancher Cliven Bundy’s supporters are “domestic terrorists.” It’s astonishing rhetoric given the White House’s characterization of the mass shooting by a genuine terrorist, Major Nidal Hasan, who killed 13 Americans at the Fort Hood Army base after yelling “Allahu Akbar!” (God is great.) Rather than labeling Hasan’s actions “domestic terrorism,” the Obama administration is prosecuting him for having committed “workplace violence.” Democratic rhetoric is become ever more desperate and overheated as we approach the November midterm elections.
